Dream: Early Morning in Jerusalem’s Old City, 10/25/2009
This morning I had a vivid dream. The colors were very real and the sensations in my hands and feet were readily felt. It seems this dream has a prophetic angle to it which may be helpful for the Body of Messiah to know how to prepare spiritually for what is to come. Therefore, I submit this to the Body for prayer and testing.
I have left out the scenes which seem to pertain only to myself personally. What I report here are the scenes which appear to be for the Body. Following the description of the three scenes, I will give what I believe to be the interpretation I have received from YHWH by the Holy Spirit.
Dream sequence, Scene 1:
At night, as I was sitting inside a car with 2 or 3 others, we saw a big field across the street. In the dim light I could see lots of men fist-fighting. It seemed completely unorganized; there was not two sides, or teams, so to speak. It was “every man for himself” and the violence was cruel.
I and the others are ducking down inside the car, so as to remain unseen by anyone on the street. We find out after awhile that the fighting has spread and violence has overcome the entire area, with many dead.
Dream sequence, Scene 2:
I am with one dark brown-skinned man, a friend (which I don’t recognize), and we are inside an empty home that is not ours. The half-finished cooking pans of cake and brownies seem to show that the home was vacated quickly. Looking out the window of the house, I see that the occupants of the home also had a business in the strip mall across the street. Was it the clothing store next to the other clothing store? No, I see there a sign pointing to the back of the building, behind the clothing stores, and one level down. I decide to go check it out.
Once there I find an empty store/office space, again with half-finished pans of brownies, cakes, and such (party food). I taste some – it’s good – sweet, and not stale. I take some to my friend back at the house.
The friend begins to tell me his life story: How, even though he is dark-skinned, he is not of African descent, rather a different country. He came from that country and began work in a coal-mine in Kentucky, later moving up to better jobs and locations.
He wants to continue, but we are interrupted, and we must move on from that house.
Dream sequence, Scene 3:
From the house we are caught up with streams of people toward a group of hallways which turn into stairways going downwards. The stairways are curved elegantly, but under my feet the steps are very uneven – each step is different height, different depth, or both, and some are not even level. Nearing the bottom I can see that many stairways are all heading down toward the floor of the same great amphitheater hall. I have the distinct impression that this is the great hall of the United Nations headquarters.
Eventually a man comes to the podium. He expresses understanding for the difficult times that everyone is facing, and he welcomes all to sleep there in the amphitheater or the hallways above. He says that the floors will be hard to sleep on, but it will be warm. He adds that the UN will pay the cost – about 25 euros per person per night – he seeks to appear as a wonderful benefactor to the people.
Riots and fighting will start, and quickly escalate, with every man for himself. The fighting soon covers large areas.
This results in Scene 2:
Houses and businesses will be vacated quickly, with little lead-time, even in the midst of celebration atmosphere (the party food half-eaten is not spoiled).
Offices will be emptied of their equipment, while shops (like clothing stores) are simply abandoned with their goods still hanging.
He wishes to distance himself from African Americans for some reason, perhaps because the fighting is linked to race riots pitting African Americans against other Americans.
Coal mining – low pay hard labor – typical of new immigrants who work hard to try to climb the ladder.
He is pictured as a friend because he is not part of the destructive riots tearing the nations apart.
Streams of people filing into hallways: these are displaced people from many nations moving toward one ideology or “solution.”
The stairways are elegant and curved because their downward spiral has been engineered. However, each step downward is very rough. In other words, the downward spiral of each nation has been scripted; yet, the steps downward are not necessarily planned down to the last details.
As each nation reaches the bottom, we see that they are all together in the same position: in an amphitheater (the world stage) waiting for the main event: the Big Man speaking for the United Nations.
When the man says that the United Nations will provide for all the people, this means, in effect, that the United Nations is taking over the governing and upkeep of all the nations. The UN is using the engineered chaos (the spiral staircases) to lead each nation to its bottom; all nations are in the same position; and then the UN takes them over and the people and nations are under UN authority. The UN is seen as a great benefactor to the world.
When the man says that the floors will be hard, he means that life will be difficult, but livable (there will be warmth). The warmth will be paid for by the UN – thereby adding to the benefactor image he wants to present to the world.
I do not believe that this dream is a result of my own anxious thoughts –because I honestly have not been feeling worried in the least about world events. I live in Jerusalem and I see the world’s conflicts centering more and more around my city – yet, my trust in Yeshua is firm and I “fear not for He is with me.”
While I do keep up with world events, I rarely if ever see my natural knowledge “leak” into my dream life. According to my years of dreams and dream interpretation experience, I feel that the dream contains strong evidence that its source is not my own emotions or the dark side, but that it comes from the Holy Spirit. As I prayed this morning, I felt a leading to share this dream publicly – a sense that I have rarely if ever had.
If I am correct in sensing that this dream is from YHWH, and that I am supposed to share it, what does it mean for all of us?
I believe that this dream is an outline of events which will happen in the future. The reason YHWH wants us to know the outline is so that we will not be tempted to fall into fear. Fear is of the enemy and we are to have no part of it. Knowing the future can be a help in fighting fear because when the future comes to pass as foretold, our faith in Y’shua is strengthened – and faith is the antidote to fear.
Remember: “Perfect love casts out fear” (1 John 4:18)
Here’s a segment of this verse in context. Please read prayerfully and with an open heart:
1 John 4:14 – 5:5 (AENT)
“And we have seen and do testify that the Father has sent his Son, a Redeemer for the world. 15. Whoever confesses Y’shua to be the Son of Elohim, Elohim abides in him and he abides in Elohim. 16. And we have believed and known the love which Elohim has towards us: for Elohim is love, and whoever abides in love, abides in Elohim. 17. And hereby is his love perfected with us; that we may have open countenances in the day of judgement; because as he was, so also are we in this world. 18. In love there is no fear; but perfect love casts out fear; because fear exists in peril, and he that fears is not perfected in love. 19. Let us, therefore, love Elohim; because he has first loved us. 20. And if any one will say, I love Elohim, and yet hates his brother, he is a liar: for he that loves not his brother who is visible, how can he love Elohim who is invisible? 21. And this command we have received form him, that whoever loves Elohim, must love also his brother.
5:1. “Whoever believes that Y’shua is the Mashiyach, is born of Elohim. and whoever loves the begetter, loves him also that is begotten of him. 2. And by this we know that we love the children of Elohim, when we love Elohim and follow his Commandments. 3. For this is the love of Elohim, that we keep his Commandments: and his Commandments are not burdensome. 4. Because, whoever is born of Elohim overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith. 5. For who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Y’shua is the Son of Elohim?” (AENT)
