Greetings, Friends

Here is the summary of several things the Lord has been speaking to us through the Scriptures and through prophetic dreams. Please consider these with prayer. I’ll give Marie’s revelatory information first, and then make comments on it. Blessings on you as you consider these things.

Zechariah 11:4-17

The Lord spoke to me (Marie) through this passage regarding handing America over to a worthless leader and then breaking the covenant of favor and unity over us.

This passage in Zechariah speaks directly to the nation of Israel, but has implications for America in this time. As a nation, we have repeatedly refused to allow God’s Word or His Spirit to set the standard for our laws, our practices, our values, our morals, our education, our entertainment, our economy, or our personal lives. We have treated Him disdainfully and arrogantly.

In the past, God has kept a covering over America, one of favor and unity, but we are being warned that God is preparing to remove that covering, and to turn this nation over to leadership that is worthless. The spirit of the Antichrist is growing in the world and in America, and this nation has been seduced into agreement with the enemy.

If the people of God do not repent and cry out for mercy, we will find ourselves in great difficulty. The Lord will permit whatever level of pressure is required for us to turn from wickedness and seek His face in prayer until He answers and restores the land. These warnings have come repeatedly from the prophetic voices, but have gone largely unheeded. We believe that this nation has crossed a line of offense against God, and that we are being positioned for judgment—that judgment being that we will have leadership that disdains and ignores the Word of God and His ways. We will reap the fruits of our own rejection of God’s ways.

David Baron’s commentary on Zechariah is very helpful in understanding the meaning of this disturbing passage. See Zechariah: A Commentary On His Visions And Prophecies by David Baron. Published by Kregel Publications, PO Box 2607, Grand Rapids, MI 49501.

First dream:

I walked and every where I went I was accompanied by a beautiful white lion. It was the most beautiful lion I had ever set my eyes on and it was so pure looking. I was not afraid and instead very peaceful and calm.

The white lion speaks obviously of Jesus. He is present with His people. He is peaceful and calm, but He is holy, pure, and set on conquering. He is coming as the purifying fire of Malachi 3, motivated by love and passion. Jesus is intent on leading us into the beauty of holiness, and He will walk with us in this mode day by day. He is not anxious or angry, just holy and determined.

Second dream:

I was running all over the earth warning people to get ready for what was going to happen. There was a man standing near me who kept encouraging me to tell everyone I could about the trouble that was coming soon and to be prepared.

The prophetic voices are being motivated by the Holy Spirit to raise the level of awareness of the trouble that is coming. We must prepare by watching and praying. When the apostle Peter was facing his time of crisis, he thought he was prepared, but Jesus told him that even though his spirit was willing, his flesh was not prepared to stand under the pressure that was about to be released. The only place of preparation is to watch and pray, to intercede over these times, and to allow the purity and holiness of God’s presence to fill us and make us ready.

Third dream:   Jer: 5

I was riding a bike of some kind on a narrow path and it broke down. I think it was the tire. I started walking to find help and saw some people in the field ahead. I sensed danger immediately so I warned them not to try and kill the animal that was swiftly running towards them because they did not have the tools or weapons to destroy the animal. As it got closer, I realized it was a dark grey shaggy wolf and it was very large. The teeth were huge and the wolf look vicious. Again I yelled as the wolf got closer to the people getting ready to pounce on them, “run because you do not have the tools or weapons to kill him.

In Jeremiah 5, the Lord Himself releases powerful enemies against His people because they have repeatedly refused His Word that came through His prophets. Because of their obstinacy, God finally has no recourse but to raise up wild animals that come to attack the people. In Israel’s history, these wild animals were enemy nations that attacked and destroyed God’s people.

Again, there are implications for America here. We cannot fight what God is releasing with normal means, i.e. political processes, legal processes, or any other natural means. God is not only permitting the wolf to come, He is commanding it. His purpose is to awaken His people to a holy fear, to repent from wickedness, and to wage war in holiness through intercession and worship. These are the weapons of God’s Kingdom, and we can no longer ignore them.

We urge our readers to renew your commitments to prayer and fasting, and to studying the topics of God’s beauty, the passion of Jesus for His Bride, and the fact that Jesus is preparing to return to the earth very soon. These times are upon us. The storm that accompanies the end of this evil age is brewing, and we cannot ignore that fact any longer.

Fourth dream:

I was under some olive trees and someone was teaching me how to extract the oil from the trees.  I was so peaceful and so grateful for the understanding.

In Zechariah 4, the prophet sees a vision of two olive trees from which oil is pouring out. The statement God gives the prophet is powerful for us today:

“Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,” says the Lord of Hosts. “Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of ‘Grace, grace!’ to it.” (Zechariah 4:6-7, NKJV)

Only by the power of the Holy Spirit released through intercession and worship can the issues of the day be addressed. Godly leaders must arise who have a true anointing, not just strong personalities and business plans. Only the power of God can solve the issues that confront us, and we are not prepared.

God has a solution: we must seek Him in intercession and worship. We must repent of compromise and unrighteousness, and we must fix our gaze on the beauty of Jesus and be satisfied with nothing but His presence. To that people, God will release His gracious power for transformation and healing.

The Lord has been speaking to me out of Psalm 52:8-9

But I am like an olive tree, thriving in the house of God.
I will always trust in God’s unfailing love.
I will praise you forever, O God, for what you have done.
I will trust in your good name in the presence of your faithful people.

May the Holy Spirit bless you and instruct you as you consider these things.
