Psalm 34:7-8, "The angel of
the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them. Oh,
taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear
Upon my return to the United States in late August, I had a very vivid and
troubling dream. I shared it with the staff here in Wisconsin, and with a
few other brothers, but continued to pray and seek direction from God as
to whether or not I should include it in the newsletter.
At the staff's urging, and feeling a release from the Lord, I have
included this dream in this issue of the newsletter.
I dreamt I was walking through a sparsely wooded forest, and suddenly my
attention was drawn to an eagle flying high above the tree line. It was a
beautiful sight to behold as the eagle rode the thermals, flying in slow
lazy arcs across the blue sky. I began to quicken my pace, and keep up
with the eagle's flight, all the while keeping an eye on it, noticing that
it was slowly descending toward the earth. I followed it for a long time,
its descent not being sudden but very gradual.
Finally I came upon a small clearing, where there were no trees, just some
bushes on the edges of the green grass. The eagle landed in the clearing,
and began to look around not seeming to notice me.
As I began to wonder what the relevance of this was, a man dressed in
white, hands clasped in front of him, appeared beside me, and said, "Be
patient, in due time you will see the purpose."
I was silent as I watched the eagle, and was beginning to grow somewhat
impatient, when suddenly, it seemed out of nowhere, a brown snake lunged
at the eagle, and bit down on its left wing. The snake's strike was very
quick and very precise. The eagle reacted without delay, clawing and
pecking at the snake cutting deep wounds in its underbelly, trying to
defend itself and ward off the serpent. Just as it seemed the eagle was
winning the battle, and the serpent was retreating, another serpent
appeared, red and black diagonal stripes covering its body, and without
hesitation struck out at the eagle's right wing, biting down, and refusing
to release. After a momentary tug of war the serpent tore off flesh and
feathers, leaving a large wound on the eagle's right wing. The second bite
was much worse then the first, and for an instant the eagle was stunned.
Then a serpent much larger than the previous two, made up of many colors,
slithered toward the eagle, opened its jaws, and lunged, taking the whole
of the eagle's head in its mouth before biting down.
The serpents retreated and the man who had been standing beside me, walked
to the eagle, knelt down, picked it up, and held it in his cupped hands.
The look of grief on his face was beyond any I have seen in my life. Just
seeing the look on the man's face broke your heart.
The man continued to look down at the eagle, and with a pained voice said,
"The true tragedy, is that at any moment it could have sought the safety
of the above, it could have soared toward the heavens and would have found
its protection. This has been revealed to you, that you may know, the
first bite has been, the second is yet to come, and the third will be its
I watched for a long time as the man held the eagle in the palms of his
hands, the pained expression never leaving his features. I was too stunned
to speak, or ask any questions, what I had seen having seemed so real. The
feeling followed me into my waking hours as well, and each time I closed
my eyes I saw the entire scene play before my eyes throughout the day.
One thing that I feel I need to share with you is that the second bite
seemed to come from an unexpected place. Although I have my own opinion
concerning this, I choose to keep it to myself, because expounding on
personal opinion is a dangerous thing when it comes to things that God
I was hesitant in sharing this dream, because I know some will perceive it
as a reason to fear. It is not a reason to fear, but a reason to be
stirred, and emboldened for the kingdom of God. The reality, is that these
are the times we are living in, and I for one am thankful to God for his
forewarnings, knowing that His children will never be unaware of what the
future holds. All I can do is urge you to be watchful, and diligent in
your prayers to the Father.
This nation, today, is more in need of prayer on its behalf than at any
time in its history. It is the prayers of His children that compels God to
relent, and tarry. Stand in the gap, you are precious in the eyes of God,
and He hears your heartfelt supplications.
Joel 2:12-14, "Now, therefore, says the Lord, turn to Me with all your
heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning. So rend your heart,
and not your garments; Return to the Lord your God for He is gracious and
merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness; and He relents from doing
