Hey… Tomorrow’s posting today!
Because I’m sensing the urgency, I felt to get tomorrow’s posting to you early enough for us to pray about it during tonight’s call. A few days ago we shared warnings by Cindy Jacobs and Chuck Pierce to maintain vigilance in prayer for America, Israel and Iran. I am adding Washington DC to this list. Over the past few days, prophetic watchmen locally and nationally have begun to sound a similar alarm—especially for the protection of our Nation’s Capitol.
In the Spirit, Jolene and I have both felt an unsettling sense of urgency of late. Why? We don’t know. But the Spirit of God is compelling us to watch and pray. And as yesterday’s posting conveys, the Lord is also compelling many to prepare our spheres by the Spirit for protection and breakthrough in potential challenges ahead. Remember—Gideon’s work positioned Israel for military victory!
Dream—Rough Waters Ahead for DC
Five days ago I had a vivid dream that seems to warn of turbulence ahead. I was on an old naval ship, similar in stature to the USS Constitution. The ship actually seemed more like a barge or a tanker than a frigate, but it was clearly valued and highly honored.
It was night, and the ship was berthed in a very wide space with a cement, square-like dock on either side. Suddenly the water began to churn, producing waves with large whitecaps. Tossed by powerful currents, the ship rocked and reeled as if caught in a violent storm, even plunging underneath the water in the harbor.
In the dream I was pulled underwater, and began to swim towards the dock to the left of the ship. I do not recall having any fear, and even seemed to be able to breathe underwater. I pulled myself on to the dock. The ship was still under about 3 feet of water—not nearly as bad as at first. I watched in amazement, noting how the sea itself was turbulent, but the dock area surrounding the ship remained very stable.
What does this dream mean? Were my visions of the night overtaken by too much “We the Pizza?” Hopefully. But I rarely have such lucid dreams, and Holy Spirit flashed an interpretation while praying afterwards. The venerated barge represents Washington DC, and the two cement docks represent the border states of Virginia and Maryland. The dream indicates that severe instability may be ahead for Washington DC specifically. The “USS Washington” didn’t sink in the storm, but part of the ship certainly remained underwater—at least by a few feet.
How was the storm generated? What currents caused the whitecaps—and how? None of this was clear. In the dream I knew the ship—which I’m calling the USS Washington—was similar to the USS Constitution. If the dream is conveying a constitutional crisis alone, it is already one of the most accurate I’ve ever had.
And the timing? Not clear either. I do know that another high level prophet gave a private warning to friends about potentially severe challenges in Washington DC after July 4 of this year.
That said, I sense the urgency now to pray. And it was after this dream that Holy Spirit spoke the phrase “Gideon’s Torch,” confirming yet another prayer project. These projects seem to be coming this year as frequently as winter snowstorms—breaking all the records! Anyway, I knew we were to prepare the land like Gideon to receive God’s protection and ultimate victory. And I knew that the “burning lampstands” He has been cultivating would become like beacons, driving out darkness and restoring clarity of direction.
There’s probably more to both the overall warnings and specific interpretations than I am currently perceiving. Please feel free to share your thoughts! And above all else please pray. Again, I am sending this along early enough that we can intercede together on tonight’s prayer call. Covenant blessings to each of you in this Gideon Army…
Jon & Joleen, thank you so much for your faithful watch and sounding the alarm! Please know we are standing with you in Fredericksburg and join the call to prayer you have issued . Love the revelation The Lord has and continues to release in and through you! Blessings, Teri Buck
Some possible interpretive thoughts regarding your dream: If the USS Constitution (warship for protection) has morphed into the USS Washington (“barge” of goods and provision), Holy Spirit may be highlighting the true function and identity of modern Washington, DC. What was once the legitimate function of a limited federal government (national defense, etc.) has now become a bloated “barge” of provision to the nation (undisciplined spending, taxation, more government jobs, & bureaucracy). Never more than now has the federal government used that power of spending to advance it’s illegitimate agenda. That the ship (of state) was “3 feet” under the water (36 inches) points clearly to Psalm 36 as the definition of the action. That is, God’s skillful, surgical action of judgment – “…Your judgments are like a great deep…” – is miraculously directed at Washington, D.C. because of “pride” with limited or no repercussions to Maryland and Virginia. It is widely known in the natural that he economies of both states are normally closely tied to the wealth (recession-proof government jobs, etc) of D.C., but somehow D.C. will recede-sink while the surrounding states will not be affected. This will be especially so for God’s people in the area in contrast to those trusting in the government for their protection-provision. You were not afraid as you got refuge on the concrete dock (“…take refuge in Your wings…”). So Father may be preparing us for another government “shutdown”, normally creating great economic fear, especially in the DC area, but will not be so or God’s people in the area because “…they drink their fill of the abundance of Your house…” His judgment will be upon the controlling Pharaoh-Babylonian pride of Washington, DC, thus making room for her redemption-restoration after His discipline. But He wants His people to prepare their hearts to depend on Him now before these judgments unfold. Once again, a Egypt and Israel Passover scenario being played out before our eyes.
Thank you for this posting and all the words from Lamplighter. The past three days on Gideon have been confirming words for me to begin a prayer project in Pittsburgh. The Lord has been speaking, however, my authority has not gotten back to me with a blessing for the project. I have been delayed since November. I am feeling such urgency, and I am hesitating to step out….. but I feel like a Gideon. Just do it, undercover, … I know this in my spirit.
Thank you for confirming words and encouraging…… much is at stake for each of us to do “whatever” it is the Lord is saying. To not do with He says, is disobedience.
