“The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.” Isaiah 9:10
A dream of the events that would take place the next morning…9/11. A Word of the Lord concerning His return and the judgment that was coming in the future.
First part FULFILLED: 09/11/2001 Terrorist attacks on World Trade Center.
Another part FULFILLED: 2008 America’s economic crisis. (see 04.10.2007 Woe To America)
Just before 4 am CST, Monday, September 10, 2001, I awoke from a very disturbing dream. I knew immediately that it was prophetic and went straight to my computer to document what I saw. Though I had never had a dream of this nature, I knew that the dream was a warning of the judgment of God coming upon America and revealed things about the end times. I sensed such an urgency within me. It made me want to run out and start warning people to REPENT! FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND! But, I had no idea that this dream would indeed be fulfilled just over 24 hours later–the next morning–the morning of 9/11.
UPDATE: It would not be until almost the 8th anniversary of 9/11 that I would see that the Scripture I posted at the beginning of this article, Isaiah 9:10, was prophetically connected to my dream and this event. I was recently watching Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s DVD showing this prophetic connection, and that 9/11 was indeed God’s judgment on America, when suddenly, I saw it–the Scripture reference numbers from the prophet Isaiah–the numbers 9:10–the date of my dream. Rabbi Cahn’s teaching on this is astounding. I encourage you to visit his site http://isaiah910.com/index.html for his teachings on 9/11 and the current economic crisis of 2008/2009. All that he speaks of, is confirmation to what the Lord showed me in my dream and the revelation and understanding He gave me after the event.
My husband and I were standing on the beach at our timeshare condo, Ocean Towers, in Panama City Beach Florida. It was a typical sunny, summer day. We were only a few feet from the shoreline and were helping some other people there on the beach with us–others whom I did not know but sensed that they too were timeshare owners at Ocean Towers–lay a large white PVC pipe approximately 12-14 inches in diameter in the sand. The pipe being laid was going from East to West down the beachfront only a few feet from the seashore. It was being put together in sections and as it reached each group of people on the beach they were to quickly add their sections and dig out a shallow hole where the bottom half of the pipe sat and then cover the top half with sand. I was not sure, but I assumed it was a water line. I was bent over helping when suddenly I stood up and turned to my right facing the ocean. Twin black horses that looked like jets were flying parallel just above the ocean and were coming toward me at the speed of a jet. These huge black horses were identical. They were jet black and both had written on their right sides the word “LOCUSTS” in large white bold letters. I didn’t look away from these black horses, but peripherally to my right, much farther down the beach, there was another pale greenish colored horse coming in at the same speed as these.
These next thoughts that came to my mind happened as if time suddenly stood still, for upon seeing these horses and the speed in which they were approaching, they would hit land within only a second or two. I instantly knew that these horses brought destruction and were the judgment of God for they were symbols straight from the book of Revelation. The instant I saw the horses I knew that the tribulation spoken of in Revelation had begun, but when I saw the word LOCUSTS on them I thought, “But I thought that was two separate events.” The black and pale horses are from Revelation chapter six when the Lamb opens the third and fourth of seven seals. The locusts are recorded in Revelation chapter nine at the blowing of the fifth of seven trumpets by the angels of God. Amazingly, I did not feel a sense of horror, but I knew that this was the judgment of God and that destruction was about to come upon America. Suddenly, as if jolted out of my daze of thought, my next thought was, “WHY AM I STILL HERE?” Being raised in the Baptist church, I had always been taught that the Rapture of the Church, the snatching away to heaven of the Believers, would happen before the time of tribulation upon the earth. Therefore, in my dream, this is what I thought should be happening and I shouldn’t be witnessing this–much less experience it.
Immediately, I knew to look up toward heaven, because the Scriptures teach us that Jesus will return in the clouds just as he ascended into heaven after his resurrection, and when He does, those who died as believers in Christ Jesus would rise from their graves first, and those who are still alive on the earth will be caught up in the sky with them to meet the Lord in the air. (1 Thes. 4:13-18) I looked up, and far into the sky above me, I could see Jesus. It was as if the sky had parted. He was very high, but I could still see him clearly. He was wearing a glistening white garment draped over by a glistening red garment. Peripherally I saw people rising into the sky as if coming up out of the depths of the ocean. I knew these were the dead being raised from their graves and I knew to lift my arms toward him. When I threw my arms up, I slowly began lifting a couple of feet from the ground and then suddenly, just at the instant the horses would have reached me, I was swiftly taken up into the sky. The feeling of being rescued from the judgment that was about to hit, the unbelievable feeling of defying gravity and my body flying through the air, and above all, the sheer joy and ecstasy of seeing Jesus and knowing I was finally going to Him was indescribable.
I had not risen far before I remembered those on the ground with me–especially my husband. I did not know if they saw the horses and felt selfish that I did not make sure they knew to look up–to come up with me. It all happened so fast that I couldn’t have done anything, but, because I didn’t know if they had been taken up also, I suddenly lost my peace. I had a desire to look back, but I knew within me that I could not–that it was too late–and I knew within me, that as the angel commanded Lot and his family to not look back at Sodom and Gomorrah as they fled the city while God destroyed it, I too was not to look back. At that instant I chose to not look back. I did not take my eyes off of Jesus, and the moment I made that choice, the feeling of guilt and sadness immediately left me. My arms were still lifted and I could steer my body by leaning–causing me to soar freely upward. The farther I rose the faster I went. I was surprised that I was soaring higher and faster than others that were rising in the sky. There is no way to describe what I was feeling, but every emotion and feeling that I was experiencing in this dream was so vivid, so tangible, that when I woke up I could still feel it as if it had actually happened.
Suddenly I was in the presence of Jesus. It was as if I was standing directly in front of, and only a few feet to his right. I was standing in an endless level field of the most perfect, rich green grass. Peripherally, I could see people standing on both sides of me as far as my vision allowed, but I did not take my eyes off of Him. I also knew that even more were lined up just like this behind me–that I was among tens of thousands. Jesus looked the same as he had in the sky but was standing in a square shaped booth that was about a foot off the ground. It had four tall corner posts with things draped from them. He stood there looking to the right of me as if viewing the sea of people standing before Him. I was so close to him I could have almost reached out and touched him. I wanted so much to express my worship of him, and tried, but the words seemed so inadequate. I felt He was worthy of so much more than I could express. I suddenly felt like I was not prepared, that I was unable to express what He was worthy of because I had failed to worship Him enough while on earth. I found myself at a loss for words. As I struggled to think of words of praise and worship, I began to worship in tongues–in my prayer language that I had on the earth. At this point, as if reading my thoughts, He turned his head to the right and looked down at me. The instant our eyes made contact, I suddenly found myself back on earth, standing in the middle of the living room of a house I’d never been in. The only light in the room was coming from a television set across the room directly in front of me. I could see the dark silhouettes of two children, a boy and a girl that looked to be about eight to ten years old sitting there on the floor to the left of the TV. I saw the silhouette of a man sitting in an overstuffed chair to my right and just a few feet in front of me. Though I knew I was in a strangers home, I knew I was in America. These people were mesmerized by what was on the TV. I looked at the TV and though I heard no sound, I could not believe what I was seeing. What I had just experienced was being played out on the screen. In absolute disbelief and exasperation I thought, “I can’t believe that this is on TV. I KNOW it really happened to me!” I wanted to scream, “This was not just some movie! This really happened!” As soon as I thought this, the man slowly began to turn around to his left to look at me as if he suddenly realized I was in the room, but just before I saw his face, I woke up.
I cannot describe the absolute frustration and utter exasperation that I felt when I woke up. I just lay there in the darkness of my bedroom–stunned! My mind was still reeling from all I had just experienced in that dream and I could feel the tension in my body. I couldn’t even move. I lay there for about a minute and honestly did not know if I had dreamed this or if it had really happened. It was THAT REAL! I felt such disappointment and such frustration with myself that Jesus had sent me back to earth. I felt that the reason He did so was due to His displeasure of my pathetic attempt to worship in His Presence. After a minute or so I got up off the bed and went down the hall to my study. I closed the door, looked up, and with such a mixture of feelings asked, “Lord! What was that all about?” He immediately replied very solemnly,
“My coming is nearer
than anyone realizes.”
I stood there in awe and had no doubt that what I had seen in my dream was from the Lord and because of His answer, felt such a great urgency to tell others what He had just shown me and had just told me. I knew that I must document this dream before I forgot any of it, so I sat down to my computer and prayed that the Lord would give me total recall–and He did. When I finished typing it, I asked the Lord, “What am I to do with this?” It made me want to go out in the streets and proclaim, JESUS IS COMING! JESUS IS COMING! HE’S COMING SOON!!! Seeing the judgment coming upon us and what I thought was the rapture happening simultaneously caused me to think that this was only about those events. It would not be until the next morning when I received a phone call from a friend telling me to turn on my TV, seeing the smoke billowing from the World Trade Center and witnessing the second plane fly into the other tower that I would suddenly realize that my dream was prophetic of the events of that day.
The moment I saw the second plane fly into the World Trade Center tower I knew beyond any doubt that my dream, filled with the symbolism of judgment from the book of Revelation, was prophetic of the event I was witnessing and that it was God’s Divine judgment on America. The first thing that came out of my mouth was, “You will not believe what I dreamed yesterday morning.” Then, I began to weep and pray while I was still on the phone with my friend. I heard myself crying out to God to forgive us of our sins and to forgive the sins of our fathers. I cried out for His mercy. As my friend prayed, the Lord spoke something so sobering to me. When she stopped praying I said, Helen, I know we just prayed in faith, but as you were praying He told me, “It’s not over.”, and, “This is just the beginning.”
I understood that in Him saying “It’s not over.”, more tragedy would take place that day. I felt such sadness. Though His announcement that, “This is just the beginning.”, brought about an ominous sense of more judgments to come, a calm resolve came over me. I knew that GOD was in control of all that was happening and that he was indeed bringing His righteous judgment upon our nation. I didn’t have to ask why. I knew that the sins of this nation had risen up to heaven and anything we got we deserved. Though thoughts of chemical and biological warfare or a nuclear attack came to mind, the peace that came with this word from the Lord defied logic.
As my friend and I watched what was unfolding before us, I told her that I had dreamed of the judgment revealed in Revelation coming to America and of the return of the Lord at the end times. I did not understand how the symbolism that I saw fit what we were witnessing, so I did not go into detail, but let her know that I knew this that was happening and my dream were connected. Soon after we finished our call, the news commentator announced that the Pentagon had just been hit. The “It’s not over.” that the Lord had spoken to me was suddenly a reality.
As I sat watching the news, the cameras zoomed in on the two World Trade Center towers. By this time, huge billows of jet black smoke had completely engulfed the top sections of both towers. The news commentator referred to them as the “TWIN TOWERS”. Instantly I saw it. I SAW the TWIN BLACK HORSES in my dream! I saw them streaking across the ocean toward America like twin black jets. I hate to have to admit my ignorance at the time, but I did not know that the World Trade Center had two buildings and that they were referred to as the TWIN TOWERS. Upon hearing this and seeing the black billowing smoke engulfing the Twin Towers, I realized why I saw twin black horses flying like jets into America and bringing destruction. I sat there in absolute awe that this was what God had shown me the morning before. Then, in what seemed like only minutes later, I, like most of you who are reading this, stood numb as I witnessed the towers fall before my eyes–not knowing how many people were still inside and how many would die. It was a gut-wrenching, sickening feeling. It was one of those times that you almost couldn’t believe what you were seeing. Such a feeling of helplessness–that all you could do was stand there and witness it.
In the days that followed, the Lord kept having me go back to the Scriptures in Revelation that were depicted by the symbols in my dream. Each time, He would show me more of what the symbolism represented and how it found fulfillment in the events of, and even after, 9/11. About the time I’d think there was nothing left to uncover from these passages–that surely there was nothing left to be revealed and wonder why He would be telling me to read them again–He would reveal even more. It seemed that as things unfolded in the aftermath, the Lord had much more to show me in His Word concerning it.
I know that there is a definite time and place that these passages in the book of Revelation will come to pass exactly as they say, but God uses His WRITTEN WORD to speak to us today and to confirm to us what He is doing. Here are the Scriptures that were represented in my dream and their significance to the events of 9/11 and afterward.
THE BLACK HORSES/LOCUSTS
And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. Revelation 6:5-6
The World Trade Center twin towers, located across from Wall Street, housed the major banking and loan industries in the nation and the world. These massive towers were a symbol of the economic power and prominence that America held worldwide. I knew that thousands of lives were not the only thing that was destroyed that day. I knew that the locusts that had the appearance of horses had come to attack the great wealth of this nation. One week after the “Twin Towers” of America’s World Trade Center fell completely, the nations stock market reopened. At the close of that first week’s business, the nation witnessed the greatest fall of the stock market since the Great Depression. I couldn’t help but notice that the twin towers were not just damaged severely, they were brought completely down to the ground. Utter destruction. There was nothing left to salvage. As I have watched the replay of those towers imploding and falling, over and over again, it is still almost unbelievable, and I feel a sense of utter destruction to what they represent. It took time, but in the years that followed, the market and the American economy rallied and things seemed to have gotten back to normal. But I could not forget what the Lord spoke to me just before the towers fell, when He said, “This is just the beginning.”
THE PALE HORSE
And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:7-8
When the 3rd plane flew into the Pentagon, seeing the pale horse in my dream and reading this reference to it in the Scriptures became clearer. The pale (and 3rd) horse that I saw peripherally in my right eye in my dream, was a distance from me and appeared smaller, though I knew he was the same as the ones before me. This represents exactly what took place. If I had been facing the Atlantic ocean from the Atlantic shoreline near the Twin Towers, the direction that the pale, and 3rd horse was coming in would have been in the direction of Washington, D.C. It being the 3rd horse, represented the 3rd plane to attack. Notice in the passage that “power” was given to the horse and it’s rider to KILL WITH THE SWORD. The Pentagon was the symbol and the seat of America’s military power. This 3rd horse was attacking America’s military, just as the first two had attacked America’s economy. Not only would this be a literal attack on American soil, they dared to attack the headquarters of our military. The Afganistan and Iraq war that would soon follow this attack would in a few years bring more deaths than did the attack on 9/11. Eight years later, this nation is still at war–still dying because of these attacks.
Rev. 6:7-8 refers to killing by sword, hunger and death. These three things represent war, famine, and plague. The sword represents the military (and the symbol of our military leaders had just been attacked by the Pentagon being attacked), famine represents an economic collapse, plague represents disease (possibly brought on by chemical & biological warfare).
“IT’S NOT OVER.”
“THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING.”
And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle . And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter. Revelation 9:1-12
When I found the locusts mentioned in Rev. 9:1-12, I saw the symbolism of what was happening in these attacks. Over the next many days, those words would come back to me as I sat and watched the unrelenting smoke, billowing from the fallen ruins of those towers. One night I was taken aback when I heard a news commentator state that the rescue workers at Ground Zero, as it had been titled from the strike, had begun to refer to Ground Zero as “THE PIT”. This commentator as well as others continued to report and show footage from “The Pit”. No one could understand what was fueling the constant flume of smoke that filled the sky and blocked out the sun for days on end.
Another part of these passages describes these LOCUSTS that came from the bottomless pit as having the shape of “HORSES prepared for battle”. It goes on to describe these horse-shaped locusts as having “breastplates of iron” (what a jet is made of). The Apostle John, who had never seen a jet plane or heard the sound a jet engine makes, described what he heard as “and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.” Pretty good description of what a jet engine sounds like.
Verse 11 reveals the king of the locusts as the “destroyer”. I read this and remembered in my dream, when I turned and saw the horses; all I saw and felt upon us was ultimate destruction. GOD ALMIGHTY is the one who is loosing this destroyer upon the earth. You must understand that no spirit has the power to run rampant in God’s creation. These things are appointed to take place by the Sovereign Creator Himself. Satan has no power except that which God allows. And though some will teach and preach that GOD DON’T DO THIS ANYMORE–they are in error. God’s Word will prove to you–“line upon line, precept upon precept”–that God does not change, and GOD is STILL GOD.
As you finish verse 12, you will see the confirmation in Scripture–the very Scriptures directly associated with my dream–of what God spoke to me after I saw the attack on the Twin Towers and His response to my asking Him to stop to attack. He said, “It’s not over.” (that the attack’s taking place were not over) “This is just the beginning.” (that there were more to come later). The last Word of the Lord in this passage says: “One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.”
When we were told that a 4th plane crashed in an open field in Pennsylvania, I knew within me that its target had been the White House. Later the news media would indeed inform us that it had changed its flight plan and was headed for our nations capitol. Our leaders then released word that they thought that the White House and Air Force One were targets of attack. As the days and weeks went by and many speculations and reports from the nations foremost military experts as to the true target of that 4th plane were continuously being aired, and while hearing over and over again from so many highly respected evangelical leaders, and Charismatic prophets and prophetesses from across the nation stating emphatically that this WAS NOT the judgment of God on this nation, but instead an attack from the enemy himself, I began to question what I knew that God had revealed to me prophetically and after the fact. I began to feel intellectually and spiritually inferior to these who were speaking just the opposite of what I knew. I had not jumped on the rooftops or ran in the streets shouting what I knew, but the two who did use their platform to declare that judgment had indeed come from God upon America were verbally attacked by not only the world, but by others who call themselves Christians. Poor Jerry Falwell fell prey to and relented under these attacks. I sat there sick to my stomach as I witnessed this spiritual leader who had been given a political voice and the ear of presidents, issue shamefully his public apology on the worlds stage (CNN) for daring to say that God had brought judgment on America because of her gross sin of abortion and homosexuality. I don’t recall Pat Robertson ever recanting. I didn’t care what the WORLD thought, but as I constantly heard the spiritual voices contradicting what I knew the Lord had shown me, and as I myself had come up against opposition from even close spiritual friends for my stance, I humbled myself before a HOLY GOD and creid out to him with all earnest to know only TRUTH. I sat before Him and told him how very sorry and repentant I was if I had completely MISSED HIM on this. I did not want to be a false prophetess. I did not want to judge wrongly. I did not want to speak condemnation on anyone–much less my whole country. I loved my country and there is probably no one more patriotic than myself. I told Him that if I was so wrong that I was truly sorry. I reminded Him of all that I had heard from the spiritual giants and I needed to know if they were right and I was wrong. So I asked, “Lord, was I wrong?” He immediately replied with the question, “What did you dream?” I answered, “I dreamed the judgment from Revelation coming upon America.” The moment He asked the question I knew that He was doing to me what He had done repeatedly to His disciples when they would as Him things that they really already knew the answer to. He was confirming to me that what I saw and what I knew was truth. Because I could not find anything from my dream that revealed the 4th plane crashing into the Pennsylvanian field, I then asked the Lord, “Why didn’t the 4th plane reach it’s target?” He replied again with another question, “How many horses did you see?” I answered, “Three.” He then explained, “The fourth one was never going to hit it’s target.” I did not ask Him, but sensed immediately by His answer, that though all those on board that fourth plane died, it’s not reaching it’s target was in itself the mercy of God in His judgment of this nation. This answer caused me to ask my next, and final, question. I knew what I felt the Lord had shown me was it’s target, but the powers-that-be had said that the White House was not the target of the terrorists. They declared over and over that the target was the Capitol building. It wasn’t me wanting to be right and prove them wrong. I just needed to know in all of this that I had indeed heard the Word of the Lord correctly. I didn’t want to be guilty of speaking anything to anyone on behalf of my Lord that was not TRUTH! So I asked, “Lord, what WAS the target of the 4th plane?” Again, without hesitation, He answered, “The White House.” With this knowledge, I understood God had truly saved the “face” of this nation, and spared some remnant of “security” for it’s citizens. This again was mercy. Once those in the plane saw what they were being used as, they were willing to sacrifice their own lies for strangers. God is Sovereign. He already knew this and only let me see the three attacks of His judgment.
I would not fully understand this being shown to me this way and happening as it did until years later when I asked the Lord why He didn’t show me the four car bomb attacks in London that were thwarted. He immediately responded by telling me that what He showed me would come to pass–that it would not be thwarted. This explains why I was not shown the 4th horse. Though people died in that 4th plane, the purpose of the 4th plane was not fulfilled. One last comment about the 4th plane. Once the Lord answered my question concerning the target of the 4th plane, I didn’t dare need any further proof. But you know, God is so good. He does abundantly above anything we could think or ask. CNN reported this only 8 months later:
White House target of Flight 93, officials say
May 23, 2002 Posted: 10:41 PM EDT (0241 GMT)
WASHINGTON (CNN) — U.S. officials said Thursday captured senior al Qaeda leader Abu Zubaydah has told them hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 was intended to hit the White House on September 11.
At the end of the dream and even when I awoke from it, one thing that really disturbed me was why it ended with me seeing those people sitting there watching it all on TV. It was so very real to me. I just couldn’t accept the fact that it had not actually happened–that it was just something from someones imagination. And, because there was nothing in Scripture that represented people mesmerized by what they were watching on TV, I didn’t understand this part of the dream. My main focus had been on everything but the ending and I had not asked the Lord about it. One day as I was finishing up what I hoped would be the final draft of the documentation of this dream, there it was before me again–the end of the dream. I’ll be honest with you. I was so ashamed at how it ended that I was tempted to “save face” and leave that part out completely. But I couldn’t. I knew I had to tell it all–even if in the telling it would reveal my own spiritual weakness. Though I felt that I was sent back to earth in my dream because it was not TIME for me to be in heaven in His Presence, I still felt that horrible feeling I had as I dreamed it. I felt undone–a disappointment to God. But, I still didn’t understand the deal with the TV. I almost didn’t bother to even mention the ending, but God wouldn’t leave it alone with me. So I sat there and finally asked, “Lord, what on earth was the deal with these people sitting there glued to the TV?” Again, He answered me with a question. I was quite amazed when He asked, “What has America been doing since it happened?” My response? “Watching it on TV.” Like a movie being played before us, families have sat and watched the events of 9/11 (the judgment coming upon America in my dream) on TV, over and over and over since the moment it began to happen. And in time, movies have been made to reenact these horrific events. What I witnessed at the end of the dream did indeed become reality.
Everything that God showed me in my dream concerning America had come to pass. My trip to heaven was revealing that His return will soon follow. I still do not have clarification of the pipe that we were laying at the beginning of the dream, but I know the Lord will reveal it. Let me also add here that the “booth” that I saw Jesus standing in, in heaven, represented God’s feast of TABERNACLES. It represents the manifest presence of God as He tabernacles with His people. It is also one of the fall feasts that Jesus will fulfill in the end times. If you study this feast through Scripture, you will see how this part of my dream was very significant concerning what He told me afterward–that His coming was sooner than anyone realized. We are living IN THE END TIMES and He wants us to know that HIS COMING IS SOONER THAN ANYONE REALIZES!
I will not dare to argue that I fully understand what those who are alive when this happens will face. I will not argue “Pre-Trib, Mid-Trib or Post-Trib” rapture. I just know this. Though most are like I was in my dream–thinking I was ready to meet Christ–most Christians are not. He is not worshiped and given the honor and praise He alone is worthy of, and He is not obeyed by His own people. America’s Christians are not prepared for persecution and tribulation, and they’re not prepared to meet GOD. What if all you Pre-Trib believers are wrong? Are you prepared to suffer for Christ as our brothers and sisters in chains do in foreign countries every day? Too many are caught up in the pride and greed of the world–especially AMERICA’S world of prosperity and debauchery. This nation is in the shape it is in because of the shape God’s people are in. So goes the CHURCH–so goes the NATION.
This brings me back to the Scripture that I posted at the beginning of this writing–the Scripture that speaks of what happened to America on 9/11 and the numbers involved in this passage–Isaiah 9:10–being the date that I dreamed it. Through the prophet Isaiah, God is pronouncing even more judgment on His people because of their arrogant pride and rebellion against God. Though they knew that God’s judgment had come upon them, in their defiance against God, they boasted that they would rebuild and replant bigger and better. Our own government leaders stood before congress and read this very same Scripture–not understanding that it wasn’t a “good” thing to be quoting as our own–proudly and defiantly boasting that we would rebuild. Our leaders and most of the people of the nation are not only clueless to WHY this happened, but clueless that by using this passage from the prophet Isaiah, they were acknowledging their pride and pronouncing more judgment of God upon this nation!
One other thing that I noticed that I do not believe is coincidence. The time share that we own in Panama City and that I was at in my dream is named Ocean TOWERS. Though only seven stories tall, it too has twin towers.
In 2002, a year after 9/11, the Lord led me to read in my journal and I came across an entry that I made on August 15, 2001. I had absolutely no memory of it until I read it again. In this encounter, the Lord revealed that He was going to bring judgment upon a “great city”, less than a month before 9/11. You can read it here. This was the first witness. The second witness was my dream on 9/10. The third…9/11 itself.
Today is the day of SALVATION. This is the time to repent and turn from your wickedness and your apathy. This is the time to sanctify yourself before a Holy God and seek HIS FACE with all of your heart.
And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Revelation 22:12-13
November 6, 2010 UPDATE
Today I felt led of the Lord to search out prophetic words from prophets concerning America. I decided to look at some of the prophecies of Michael Boldea with Hand of Help ministries. As I read through some I had not read before I came across one dated for September 11, 2001, titled “The Final Warning”. Something Michael said captured my attention for it was what the Lord spoke to me the morning of 9/11 right after the 2nd plane hit the twin towers; “…this is only the beginning.”
