I dreamed that I was in America and traveling down a highway through towns and cities. Everywhere I went, there was absolute, utter, desolation. The feeling I got and everywhere I looked, it appeared that everyone was in desperate need–like a third-world country. It didn’t look like the America we know. Everything was dead. There was no live vegetation–not even grass. I saw what was left of dead trees–the charred looking limbs lying on the ground and stumps of trees as if they had been burned, yet I knew that it had not been from some forest fire but something else. I didn’t know if it was from nuclear war or what. There were only a few other people on the highway in vehicles, and I sensed that these people were a threat. I sensed that some among them were looters who had no regard for these destitute people.
As I drove though what looked like a large city, all the buildings looked abandoned and damaged. I saw only a couple of people. They seemed to be just wandering around in a daze. Everything looked gray and like it had a dusty haze over everything. I slowly drove through this city without stopping. It reminded me of a city that had been in a war. I drove down the highway and came to a small town. As I came into this small town I saw another vehicle pull over and stop behind me. Three people jumped out of the car and crossed the street as if in a hurry and I knew they were looters and a threat to the people in this town. About a block or two further down the street, I stopped and got out at what appeared to be a small store. This town was desolate like the larger city. It reminded me of a ghost town–like people had abandoned the area. When I walked into the yard of the small business, I looked down and noticed a large bag of fertilizer next to the building. I could see the back side of the bag. It was one of those bright green bags that reminded me of Miracle Grow fertilizer, and it was the only thing in the dream that I saw in color. Everything else in the dream looked black and white–dirty and with a haze as if the sun was blocked out. I figured this must be a garden center or nursery, but, as I walked around on the left of the building, instead of a nursery with plants and trees for sale, all I saw beyond it was dirt and these same kind of large pieces of dead tree limbs lying around and sticking up out of the ground. As far as I could see, there was nothing but dead, dry, barren land. It looked like some place that had suffered years of drought or some type of devastation that caused this barrenness.
When I was walking back toward my car, I felt so sorry for the middle-aged couple running the store. I didn’t need fertilizer, but I could tell they were in desperate need and were trying to sell anything they had to have money for food. I looked down at the bag that should have had about twenty-five pounds of fertilizer and saw that it wasn’t even one-fourth full. I realized that this was all they had left to sell. I saw the original price on the bag was three dollars and some few cents and wondered what she would ask for the little that was left. I knew I didn’t have much money with me, but instead of asking, I opened my billfold and found a five dollar bill, a couple of ones and some change. I handed her the five dollar bill and told her to keep it and left the fertilizer.
After this, I was walking down the edge of a street. It was the same desolate scene. Women were set up like vendors along both sides of the street. There were only two women, one on the right of the street and another on the left. They appeared dirty, tired, and destitute. It looked like they were selling personal items, like at a yard sale, but they had so few things to sell and looked so poor and dirty and destitute. I felt so sad that this was America. As I was walking past the woman on my right, I noticed her two sons that looked to be about eight and ten years old playing only a few feet away. I looked down and saw that I had a Three Musketeer chocolate candy bar in my hand that I had taken a bite of. When I saw the children, I broke off the rest of the candy, handed it to their mother and told her to have them share it. I wished I could do more but knew I only had a couple of dollars left in my billfold to take care of myself and to get me back home.
In all of these scenes that I saw, there was dirt and dust everywhere. Everything was so barren and dry and dead as if it had not rained in years. There was a dusty haze even in the sky, for the sun was not coming through and the sky was overcast even at mid-day.
I woke up.
When I saw all this, the word DESOLATION is what I heard and what I felt. This is not a word that I normally use to describe something. I knew what it basically meant, but, I looked up this word to see how it is actually defined:
Des`o*la”tion, n. [F. d[‘e]solation, L. desolatio.]
1. The act of desolating or laying waste; destruction of inhabitants; depopulation.
Unto the end of the war desolations are determined. –Dan. ix. 26.
2. The state of being desolated or laid waste; ruin; solitariness; destitution; gloominess.
You would have sold your king to slaughter, . . . And his whole kingdom into desolation. –Shak.
3. A place or country wasted and forsaken.
How is Babylon become a desolation! –Jer. l. 23.
Syn: Waste; ruin; destruction; havoc; devastation; ravage; sadness; destitution; melancholy; gloom; gloominess.
Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary, © 1996, 1998 MICRA, Inc.
This definition explains fully what I saw and what I sensed. The words: depopulation,laid waste, ruin, destitution, gloominess, wasted and forsaken…all these describe what I saw. It reminds me of the word of judgment the Lord spoke to me…see the post titled: 04.10.2007 WOE TO AMERICA.
I do not know if this is an allegory of SPIRITUAL desolation, or if it is literally physical desolation in America. If it is spiritual, then it is far worse than anything that could happen to us in the natural realm, for the things of this earth will soon pass away, but our spirits will live forever in the presence of the Lord…or in utter darkness where there is eternal torment. Again, I say what the Lord is saying this hour: REPENT…for the Day of the Lord is near.
If it is physical, it is something catastrophic that is devastating to both the land and the people in the large cities and small towns as well. I only saw one city in my dream and one town away from a large city. If this is literal, I do not know if it will involve more than this or if this is representative of many. Prophets “see in part”. Only if the Lord reveals this or confirms it and adds more through other prophets, or, when it is fulfilled will this be fully understood.
May the Lord show mercy in his judgment of this nation.
The Lord gave me this dream on Sunday, March 8, 2009. Later that morning I received an email from a friend asking me if I had seen the forwarded email from David Wilkerson that was a warning of devastation to come soon. Monday, March 9, I received another email from a friend who sent me the link to David Wilkerson’s web blog with this warning posted on March 7th. Neither of these people had seen the dream I had posted Sunday morning. I found this revelation the Lord gave Bro. David to be confirmation of what the Lord had shown me in this dream the day after he posted the warning, and Bro. David’s words about people being “shaken” reminded me of the Word of the Lord to me “06.04.2007 Prepare for the Shaking” (see the post). I also feel that the Lord was confirming my dream by having two people notify me of Pastor David’s warning. (2 Corinthians 13:1 (KJV) … In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.)
Please visit Bro. David Wilkerson’s blog post, scroll down and read his March 7, 2009 URGENT MESSAGE
Bro. David’s warning has reached the news media. I received an email from the news feed of WORLD NET DAILY. In the article it quotes a former VP of the Southern Baptist Convention who said that he hopes believers pay attention to Bro. Wilkerson’s message. He was quoted as saying:
“I have known David Wilkerson for more than 25 years as well as many of his friends and associates,” said Pastor Wiley Drake. “He is a godly man and I believe he is listening to God. I encourage each Christian to read and heed what God is saying through our brother.”
I sat down before the Lord this morning and He led me to confirmation concerning DESOLATION.
He had me open His Word and my eyes fell upon Isaiah 9:19.
Isaiah 9:19 (KJV)
19 Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother.
He had me continue reading. The chapter ends with only 2 more verses, but the Lord had me continue into the next chapter. When I began verse 1 of chapter 10, I knew He was talking about my nation–the U.S. When I reached verse 3, and saw the word DESOLATION, I knew that God was confirming this last dream to me–not simply because the word desolation is in the passage, but because of God’s anger at the sin of a nation and the mistreatment of His people, Israel.
Isaiah 10:1-6 (KJV)
1 Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed;
2 To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!
3 And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory?
4 Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
5 O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation.
6 I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.
As I read verse 1 & 2, all I could see was our president, Obama, standing before the Muslim world in Cairo, Egypt and decreeing unrighteous decrees against Israel and making alliances with the enemies of Israel. As I saw the context that God is addressing the ungodliness of Israel against her own people, I could not help but consider all the ungodly and unjust laws and decrees this current administration is making against its own people.
In verse 3, He speaks of the “day of visitation” and “DESOLATION WHICH WILL COME FROM FAR”.
Verse 5 states that God will use Assyria as a rod of his anger a staff of his indignation. Assyria was located in what is now four countries, Syria, Turkey, Iran and Iraq.
In verse 6, God says that He will send Assyria against a nation of hypocrites, a people that has been appointed His wrath due to what they have decreed–decrees that oppress His people.
I sense strongly that the Lord led me to these verses–passages that though I’m sure I’ve read in the past–I did not recall. I believe that He led me here to confirm this most recent dream of DESOLATION.
All I can do is sound the alarm. It is up to you to heed the warning and respond before God.
On March 23, 2010, one year (in the same month) after the Lord gave me this Desolation dream, the Lord speaks a word of judgment to me concerning the U.S.
You can read this at: 03.23.2010 The Handwriting on the Wall
Six years ago the Lord gave me this prophetic dream of DESOLATION to the United States. Due to President Obama’s treatment of Israel and the confirmation a year later 03.23.2010 The Handwriting on the Wall, I felt that Obama would be responsible for the DESOLATION to come upon this nation.
