Blood moon. The Shemitah. Jewish New Year. September 11. Many are questioning to the point of panic, what will this new season hold?
Yesterday we explored prophetic themes related to the coming season. Most importantly, we conveyed our sense that God is releasing a Zechariah 9:11 invitation to the nation, with 9-11-15 as a demarcation.
We also shared on the warning dream I had on July 13, in which a gigantic wave crested over the “hill” of Washington DC and flooded the city. The timing indicated in the dream was around 9-11. Amazingly, the vote by Congress on the Iranian nuclear accords is scheduled within days of 9-11.
Finally, on 9-11-15, Davids Tent begins! Jason Hershey, founder of Davids Tent, felt to begin the movement this year on 9:11 as a prophetic demonstration Amos 9:11, the restoration of the Tabernacle of David.
Today we want to share a dream about a tent, a shelter from the storm, that Jolene received back in 2006. We’ve shared it yearly ever since. But with my own dream of a wave coming around 9-11, it has no greater relevance than RIGHT NOW.
Jolene: Wave Coming! Shelter from the Storm
In this dream, given by the Lord in the fall of 2006, Jon and I and our son Jonathan were on the beach with my sister. We were seated at a picnic table under a huge pavilion on the shoreline. Since I was able to look out over the shoreline from my vantage point I could see a huge tidal wave brewing on the horizon. There were many people on the beach and boardwalks all around us.
The Wave is Coming!
The first three waves were maybe 10-12 feet high and were rolling in towards us. As they broke I began to see a huge wave that was at least 120 feet high approaching behind the smaller ones. I noticed that it was taller than the pavilion and extremely forceful in its approach and NO ONE WAS REALLY AWARE OF IT.
In the dream, Jon and my sister are attempting to do a jigsaw puzzle and are looking for the correct pieces. Seeing the massive wave, I began to ask them if it was better to try and proceed up the steps, which would put us closer to the giant wave, or to stay further away on lower ground near the picnic table. The tidal wave is fast approaching and no one is paying attention.
Phones, Plans and Purchases
The scene changes and Jon is on the phone with a ministry friend, who was on the boardwalk. They were trying to pursue a planning meeting for future events that keeps being delayed for some reason. Their conversation got interrupted by a phone call from our ministry friend’s wife. A store owner was calling to tell her that a shirt she had purchased in several other colors is also now available in pink- would she like to place an order.
All the time I am thinking that none of this matters as we are right about to be hit by the gigantic wave.
Recover and Rebuild
In the next scene we are somehow safe under the pavilion and I think that miraculously the wave must not have hit. But as I emerge from the shelter and look outside the pavilion I see huge cranes and construction equipment rebuilding things all around us. Puddles of water are still everywhere, signifying that the tidal wave definitely hit outside the pavilion and as I look towards the sea there is a series of 4-5 man-made dams with the water flowing over them.
The pavilion was the only place where the wave did not destroy everything around us. I woke up to the song in my spirit repeating Glory, Honor, and POWER, and God was emphasizing the word POWER to me.
Shelter from the Storm
In the day of devastation, the Lord desires to hide us in the shelter of His wings. I believe this dream was a word-picture of Psalm 91 for the remnant to be comforted by.
“He who dwells in the secret place of the most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust. Surely he shall deliver us….. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand: But is shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look and see the reward of the wicked……”
Come in from the Storm
In my dream I saw the devastation all around but it didn’t touch us. Just like in Moses time of the plagues, the Lord’s people lived in Goshen. Despair and tragedy were all around, but the Lord’s people lived in great protection. As a protective Father, this is God’s heart for us.
What’s our part? For one, we must reject apathy and re-evaluate our priorities. In the dream, the majority of God’s covenant people were recreating, and had no concern regarding the smaller waves then hitting our shores or the massive wave cresting on the horizon. The smaller concerns of life were choking out our discernment.
I believe the Lord is saying to everyone today, “Come in from the storm. Do not be distracted in this hour by the things you think are important. Put your priorities in perspective–in DIVINE PERSPECTIVE.”
