The Dragon Stirs
(September 28th, 2001)

I experienced the following vision:

I seemed to be high up in the heavens, looking down upon the earth. The earth
appeared as a globe to my eyes. The Lord was standing next to me.

I saw a huge golden dragon on the earth that appeared to be asleep. For some
reason, though, I sensed the dragon was very aware of all that was
transpiring around it.

"What is this dragon?" I asked the Lord.

"It is the spirit of a nation," the Lord replied.

I then saw groups of men and women of every nation and nationality converging
upon a certain spot on the earth. They were entering into a large meeting
room. Yet, a few of the men and women first met with one another secretly and
privately before the big group meeting. I watched as they solemnly nodded,
and shook hands.

I then saw as the dragon opened one red tinged eye, stirred slightly, and
gazed fixedly at this smaller group of men and women. The group of men and
women who had met with one another in secret, joined the rest of the men and
women in the large room. The dragon closed its eye, and appeared to go back
to sleep. Yet I was once again pricked with the uneasy sensation that the
dragon was not truly asleep, but was in fact very aware of all that was going
on around it.

The men and women in the large meeting room appeared to be discussing and
debating heated issues. There were piles of papers in front of each person,
and they were reading and reciting from these papers. The debates and
discussions became more and more heated. I watched as a small group of people
from two nations got to their feet, and walked from the room. Pandemonium
broke out after their departure.

"Who were those people who just walked out?" I asked the Lord.

"The Americans and the Israelis," the Lord replied.

Once again, the dragon opened one of its eyes and surveyed this scene that
was taking place. The dragon appeared to give a small smile of satisfaction.
The dragon stirred slightly, and almost without appearing to do so, moved
itself in a soft slithering motion into the large meeting room. It then
curled itself back up, shut its eye, and once again appeared to fall back
asleep. Yet from its very stillness, I once again sensed very strongly that
the dragon was indeed awake and aware. I experienced a very sinister feeling
in regard to this dragon.

The large group disbursed after a time of more heated debates and
discussions. After the large meeting broke up, the small group of men and
women who had met secretly and privately, met with each other once again. A
few of them then met with a new set of people. After a time of talking, they
all nodded, shook hands, and left. While these other meetings were
transpiring, the dragon stirred once again and stared through one opened eye
at these people. After the people left, the golden dragon slithered softly
and silently from the scene.

"Who are these people who keep meeting secretly?" I asked the Lord.

"They are the leaders of certain nations," the Lord replied. "They have
their own agenda. Their agenda is quite different from what was taking place
in the larger meeting. What they speak with their lips, and what is actually
in their mind to do, are quite different."

As I continued to gaze down at the earth, I began to see what appeared to be
veins and tunnels running through certain sections of the earth. I was
puzzled and perplexed as to what these veins and tunnels represented.

"What are these veins and tunnels?" I asked the Lord.

"They are secret entrances into certain cities and countries," the Lord
replied. "What you are observing is a very detailed network of undercover
agents and operatives. Much planning has gone into this network. Many nations
are involved in this network. There is an even smaller number of nations who
have an even more secret and sinister agenda than this present network. This
smaller group of nations is using what is being made available to them to
further their agenda, but they have already made plans to one day dispose of
those they are presently using. This is a sinister plot of tremendous evil in
high places."

A chill spread through my body at the Lord's words.

I then saw as small groups of darkly cloaked people began to appear on the
veins and tunnels I had just noticed. The people and the veins and tunnels
appeared to be highly organized.

"Who are these people?" I asked the Lord.

"Mercenaries," the Lord replied. "They are the puppets of the smaller groups
of people who met in secret that you observed previously."

I then saw the golden dragon in the heavens where I was. We appeared to be in
the outer space region around the earth, for I saw the moon and stars, and
the sky was very dark. The golden dragon was breaking up and hurling a large
object from the sky. This large object looked like some sort of a giant

"What is this large object?" I asked the Lord.

"It was a defense mechanism your country was setting in place," the Lord
replied. "Making it inoperable was one of the items that was discussed by the
small group of people you observed."

The dragon then flew swiftly and silently through the dark sky and landed in
a country I saw was the country of China. The dragon then met with groups of
people from its own nation. After their meetings were finished, I saw as
other people from other nations joined them, and new discussions began. I was
extremely perturbed and puzzled as I saw these meetings transpiring.

"What is happening here?" I asked the Lord.

"The fate of your country, as well as other countries, is being discussed,"
the Lord replied. "There is an agenda. There is a plan. These people you are
observing operate on many different levels, but each of them has their own

After the groups of people left China, there were more meetings with groups
of Chinese people. The dragon was now fully awake.

When the meetings were over, I watched as the dragon silently slithered from
the meeting room. When it was outside, I saw as the golden dragon flew into
the sky, gave a tremendous roar, opened wide its mouth, and began to devour
and swallow whole nations. To my amazement, most of the people of these
nations appeared totally oblivious to the fact that they were being swallowed
and devoured.

"What is this?" I asked the Lord. "What's happening here?"

"This is China's secret and hidden agenda," the Lord replied. "The dragon
will use whoever and whatever it can avail itself of to further its own
agenda. It will work from within nations, seemingly as a harmless friend
seeking to strengthen and promote political ties. Yet at the end, the dragon
will seek to devour all in its path. It will turn on all who have secretly
conspired with it. It will come up against your nation, and the nation of
Israel also," the Lord continued. "These will be troublesome times."

"When, Lord?" I asked. "When will these things be?"

"It has already begun," the Lord replied. "He who has ears to hear, let him
hear what My Spirit is speaking to My children. He who has eyes to see, let
him see what is transpiring in the spiritual realm. Be alert. Be prepared. Be
on guard. Be not deceived by any means."

For the first time became aware of an extremely large angel standing next to
the Lord and I. This angel had a large, drawn sword in its hand. The sword
was like a flame of fire.

"Who is this angel?" I asked the Lord, "and what is this flaming sword in his

"This is the destroying angel," the Lord replied, "and the sword of the Lord."

I then saw as groups of people began to cry out warnings to the world.

"Who are these people?" I asked the Lord.

"My messengers and prophets," the Lord replied.

I heard as one group of messengers and prophets shouted one thing, and other
groups of messengers and prophets shouted something that seemed totally
contrary to what the other group had just spoken. I was becoming more and
more confused.

"Why does it seem so many of the messengers and prophets are speaking
contrary words?" I asked the Lord. "Which group have You truly spoken to?"

"I have and I am speaking to both groups of messengers and prophets," the
Lord replied.

I then saw as what appeared to be a thick blanket of mist was dropped over
the messengers and prophets. I could somehow see through the blanket of mist,
though. The messengers and prophets appeared to be quite agitated and very
unsure of what was happening to them. A large hand appeared and began to
drive the messengers and prophets into dens and caves.

"What is this?" I asked the Lord. "What's happening to the messengers and

"I am calling them into the caves," the Lord replied. "They are filled with
self-doubt and are beginning to wonder if I have truly spoken to them. I will
nourish them in the caves with My words during their season of darkness.
During this time, they will shed all their self-sufficiency, and learn to
lean totally and completely upon Me. They will hear no other voice for a
season besides My voice. When they come forth from the dens and caves where
they are being driven and hidden, they will come forth speaking only what
they have heard and what they hear My Spirit speaking unto them. This is a
time when I will be teaching them to fully discern My voice from all other

The Lord and I were still up in the heavens, looking down to the earth,
observing all that was transpiring upon the earth. The dragon was still
devouring whole nations and peoples. The destroying angel with the drawn,
flaming sword still stood next to the Lord and I.

I then saw as the messengers and prophets who had been driven and hidden in
the dens and caves came crawling and stumbling out of the dens and caves.
They appeared completely broken both physically and from within. I then saw
as angels came to the messengers and prophets and began to feed, nourish and
minister unto them.

When the messengers and prophets began to regain their strength, I saw as
walls appeared in the distance. The messengers and prophets saw the walls,
and began to run swiftly towards these walls. When they reached the walls,
they climbed quickly to the tops of the walls and began to cry out loud
warnings and instructions to the people gathered around the walls. Some of
the people listened to the words of the messengers and prophets; others did
not listen.

"What is this?" I asked the Lord.

"I have set these messengers and prophets as watchmen," the Lord replied.
"They will not hold their peace day nor night. They will continually lift up
their voices. They will spare none of the words I speak to them. All I tell
them, they will declare."

I then heard a loud roar. I turned and saw the golden dragon flying towards
the messengers and prophets. The dragon was enraged. When the dragon reached
the messengers and prophets who remained standing steadfastly upon the walls,
the dragon began to devour them.

The Lord lifted up His right hand. I then saw the destroying angel with the
flaming sword shoot down as a lightning bolt towards the dragon. The dragon
saw the angel approaching, and curled itself up amongst the people and
nations it had been devouring. The dragon opened its mouth, and the people
and nations it had swallowed and devoured came streaming forth from its
mouth. They were armed for battle. They began battling the messengers and
prophets on the walls. The destroying angel with the flaming sword also began
to do battle, and attacked both the dragon and the warriors who had come from
the dragon's mouth.

I saw as nation after nation was conquered, the people bound and enslaved.
Many of these bound and enslaved people and nations, were then armed by the
dragon and they also became warriors for the dragon.

I then saw two nations and two groups of people who had not been devoured.
The dragon was now completely covering with its body all the other nations.
These two last nations and groups of people had been under attack, though,
and I saw many scenes of bloody devastation within these nations. I saw bands
of angels surrounding these two remaining nations and groups of people. The
dragon and its warriors could not penetrate past these angels.

"Why are these the only two remaining nations and peoples?" I asked the Lord.

"It is only My word, My presence, which is protecting them," the Lord
replied. "The final battle will be between Myself and the dragon."

"When, Lord?" I asked.

"When it is the set time," the Lord replied. "All things are being set in
place. Many leaders are unknowingly being manipulated by those who have their
own agenda. Many leaders are under plans to be slain. Their predecessors are
already in place, with their agendas set in order.

"Those who hear My voice, and seek after Me, will not be dismayed or deceived
by these things. Their eyes will see clearly; their ears will hear clearly,
what is occurring in spiritual realms. I have allowed a small time of grace
and mercy while the prayers and cries of many are lifted up to Me. Yet I am
seeking not only the cries and the prayers of people. I am seeking their
consecration. I will establish My covenant with those of a heart which is
perfect towards Me. I will be their God, and they will be My people.

"The conspiracies are agreed upon, and are in place," the Lord said. "But My
children, fear none of these things. You will be betrayed, yet fear not, for
I am with you and will not leave you defenseless. I have given My children
weapons to war with: prayer, supplications, fastings, consecration. I will
bring the counsel of the wicked against you to nought. Advance My Kingdom
while it is still day. The night is coming. Thick and gross darkness will
cover the land. My word will be precious. My children will not be a prey. I
will be their bulwark and their defense. Trust in Me, My children, and fear
none of these things which will shortly come to pass."
