Last night before falling asleep, I tossed about while pondering all the Lord has spoken this year. In dream after dream, He has shown me “movement from left to right”. He has shown me candidates on a debate stage declaring “Victory”, from left to right.
He has shown me the goal is to end in the “Red Lot”. His Spirit spoke the cryptic phrase, “party of dark awareness, you will not win a fight against a 600 foot tall man”, which then poured out more meaning when treated as a Bible (or Spirit) code investigation. And much more. I’ve blogged about all of it.
Yet, I watch the news and fret. I hear the polls and feel shaken. How can this happen? They are saying it probably won’t happen.
Then, I was reminded of something huge the Lord did last year. This is a personal story.
A year and a half ago, our son had a big decision to make, a choice between several law schools that in the end came down to two. His first choice, a secular university close to his friends and our extended family. The second, a Christian university offering a sizeable scholarship. In the beginning, we were content with whatever he wanted.
Then, the Lord began giving me dreams. In dream after dream, I saw him going to the Christian university. I sensed the Spirit telling me it was, indeed, God’s plan. One particular morning, I fretted to the Lord that others in his life would be trying hard to get him to stay near them. I heard the Lord say to my spirit in response with striking clarity, don’t worry about them, all their efforts will come to nothing.
As expected, our son wanted to be near his friends. But, when he took a step toward the secular school, God started giving him dreams! Dreams with messages saying, “turn around and go back”. Dreams of navigating bad traffic, of getting into accidents. And more.
One evening, I remember our son prayed for answers with three other people (the same ones who wanted him at the secular school near them). That very night, he had four dreams (one per person who prayed) about being at peace and happy at the Christian university!
Still, one of those persuasive voices in his life kept dismissing dreams as having no meaning! During this season, our son had a terrible tug of war in his spirit, really with the Spirit of God, although he didn’t fully realize it at the time.
You see, the Word of God tells us dreams ARE used by God to speak to His people:
“I will reveal Myself in visions, I will speak in dreams.” Numbers 12:6
“For God speaks once, yes twice, [yet man] perceives it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, in slumber upon the bed; Then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction.” Job 33:14-16
When the Spirit of God speaks, He expects us to listen and obey. One morning, God gave me a dream of a defiant young person swallowing a key chain with a bullet fob. I understood the meaning immediately, that God was telling me our son had ignored the dreams God gave him, had “bitten the bullet” and further committed himself to housing (symbolized by the key chain) at the secular school.
Sure enough, this information was confirmed two days later. And per the dream’s indication, the Spirit of God saw it as defiance against His clear direction.
Do you realize, when we begin understanding dreams are used by God to speak to us and, instead of paying attention we ignore or, worse, scorn them, that we are in defiance to the living, leading God!? He takes it that seriously.
One particular dream God gave me in our son’s process was the most poignant of all. The Holy Spirit used Woody, from the Toy Story movies, to represent him. I dreamed Woody was running toward a truck while all the other toys attacked him as he ran. But, he leapt onto the truck at the last second and was carried away to safety.
In every way, the Lord had told me our son would eventually make the right choice, but I’ll be honest, it was hard to see. Everyone around me was saying, it isn’t going to happen. But, I held onto that dream, in particular, knowing while he was under attack by unseen forces trying to turn him away from God’s voice, in the end, as God promised our son would choose the way God led and foreordained.
As foretold, up until the day he had to leave, our son was going to the secular school. We told him, no matter which way you go, we will support you. We wanted him to know his choice would not harm our relationship.
But that morning, here is what happened. I had been fasting three days up to the last day, and before leaving, my son asked me to pray over him one more time.
As I stood up to put my hands on his head, the Spirit reminded me, you’ve been fasting (i.e., you are at maximum spiritual strength, per Mark 9:29). Command all enemy attack away from him. I did what the Lord said and commanded Satan and his forces to leave, for the Spirit of God to confirm His will, and for our son to have peace.
After we prayed, my son stood up, left the room and made a phone call. When he returned, he told me, put your bags in the truck, we are going to (the Christian university)! We were in the truck in less than 30 minutes.
Then, one more thing happened which I will never forget. We were not 15 minutes down the road, when my son started shouting and pointing (he was driving). It took me a shocked second, but when I finally focused on what he was pointing at, this is what I saw: a toy Woody doll strapped on the back of another pickup truck passing us on the right!
I’ve never seen a toy Woody on the back of a truck, anytime, anywhere. Yet, God knew in advance the very moment we would be in the car heading for the school of His choosing, and had given me the dream in advance of Woody diving into a truck and being carried away for safety. Then, He put an exclamation point on it, with the Woody doll driving past us in real life! I burst into sobs, and snapped this picture.
How amazing, how accurate, is our God!? He cannot be outdone. No one is like Him. All the Lord had spoken was delivered, just as He said it would be done. And, in case you wonder, our son has never looked back, has never regretted following the Lord’s voice, has seen the wisdom of it confirmed ever since.
Thank you for letting me tell you this very personal story. I tell it to you for background because last night the Holy Spirit reminded me of it as I tossed in anxiety over the election in 3 weeks. And He reminded me again of His faithfulness, and our son’s miracle, as foretold through dreams!
Very early this morning, on October 10, 2020 (perhaps there is something significant about 10/10/2020), I dreamed my son pointed me to a Bible. And as I lifted the cover, there was a fleece inside it!
God used the image of my son to remind me of His faithfulness to keep His word! This morning, I went back to Judges 6 to read the story of Gideon and the fleece. I’ll summarize.
Gideon was about to battle the Midianites, who worshipped Baal. Gideon had torn down their altar to Baal, and they were enraged. It didn’t look good, because they were tough. But, God had promised victory over the Midianites to Gideon!
Still, Gideon wanted extra reassurance (I understand how he feels). So, he asked God, will you give me a sign? If I put out a fleece and ask you to keep only it wet with dew in the morning, while all the ground around it is dry, will you do it to reassure me? The Lord agreed and did it, just as Gideon asked.
Gideon asked a second time, Lord will you do it once more, give me a sign. I’ll put the fleece out again, and this time I’m going to soak it in water and lay it on the ground. Yet, will you make only the fleece dry in the morning while the ground around it is wet with dew? The Lord agreed and did it, just as Gideon asked. And in chapter 7 of Judges, just as God had promised and confirmed, Gideon went on to defeat the Midianites!
Last night, in my restlessness, I had asked the Lord, will you show me again? But, I also told the Lord, I want to grow to the point I trust Your voice above anything else the world is saying.
After the dream about my son and the fleece which let me know He didn’t mind being asked for confirmation, He gave me another dream:
I was outdoors with my husband and we heard a rumbling noise coming our way. At first, we were anxious not knowing what was coming, but then I said, it sounds like a large vehicle. After a few more seconds, he pointed to something behind me and said, look. I turned around, and saw a very large ship traveling through a very narrow canal channel.
Are you ready for it? It was moving from Left to Right.
For my regular readers, you may realize this is the 6th dream I’ve had about movement from left to right.
Friends, I’m going out on a limb here (He is the unbreakable Branch, so if I’m on a limb, I’m trusting it is HIM) and making a prediction:
Trump. Will. Win.
It will be tight, and it may even be at the last possible second. But, it doesn’t matter what polls say. Nor what news media say. It doesn’t matter what happens between now and then. It doesn’t even matter what happens on November 3rd. All the efforts of those against God’s plan will come to nothing! When it all shakes and settles out… God’s people, and Donald Trump, will have been victorious. [We must all still SHOW UP AND VOTE! We are part of God’s plan! He speaks, and we act!]
God is trustworthy. May He receive all the glory for speaking and for faithfully delivering what He has promised. May He receive praise and honor for hearing the outcry of His people, and for rising with healing in His wings. May His people in America never be ashamed before their enemies, because the Lord is on their side!
God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19
…the LORD your God is the only God. He is a faithful God, who keeps his promise and is merciful to thousands of generations of those who love him and obey his commands. Deuteronomy 7:9
Lord, we praise, honor and glorify You! How faithful You are to Your promises! We choose to trust You. How much more pleasing to You is our faith when we believe without seeing?
Lord, bring Your plan home to victory! After fasting at least once every week since July, we will be also be fasting and praying for three days starting sundown, October 31 through sundown, November 3. And we ask You now (and will again then) to BIND Satan away from America! Cast him and his pawns and weapons back to hell! Loose Heaven’s host to fight on our behalf, on behalf of Your name and Your people!
Restore our nation, every State and region, back into the hands of those who love You! And just as You told Gideon, and he obeyed, use us to tear down the altars of Baal, of Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry! For love of the innocent lives You created.
For the deliverance of Your people. For the glory of You, God, and in the power of Jesus, we ask and declare these things. Amen.
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17
