In August 2016, I received three very intense dreams, more intense than any of my previous dreams and much different than usual, more like a vision in which I was actually there in the middle of it all. Each dream lasted all night long. The increased intensity was extremely scary to me.
These dreams started the moment I went to sleep. When I woke up to go to the restroom and fell back asleep, I went right back into the dream and entered the same scenario again, ALL night long until morning. They weren’t multi-faceted, not going in different directions as dreams usually do, but all the same theme, unchanging.
Each dream warned of a coming famine, great despair, and homelessness for thousands of American citizens.
In one dream, I knew something had happened, but I didn’t know what. I knew we had one last trip to the grocery store. Everyone there was panic stricken, but there was so much food because the store had it pulled out from the back in anticipation of the hordes of people coming. It looked like Black Friday shopping, except with food. Everyone was out for themselves trying to store as much as they could get knowing we might not get another chance.
I had two carts and my husband had one cart. We were trying to stock up on lots of meat. I asked my husband to watch the carts while I ran to get something else. While I was gone, he got distracted looking at something else and someone stole my two carts. I remember thinking then and throughout the whole dream, “Gosh the stealing and violence started earlier than I thought it would.”
When we went back to fill our carts again, most of the food items were already gone. Even though the store started with extra stock, it disappeared very fast.
This dream went on all night. I woke up went to the bathroom and went back to sleep then I was back in the grocery store stocking up and people were doing the same we all knew famine was here. That was the theme of the dream and it never changed. God was driving the point to me that this was it. The message I got from it was, “Make your final preparations and cover your bases. Famine is close.”
My next dream was similar in that something had happened, but again I did not know what it was, but thousands of people were roaming the streets. These were good people, men in office attire with their shirts hanging out. They were just worn out looking, shaking and disoriented. They looked tired and so hopeless. They walked the streets, thousands upon thousands of them. There were no words to describe the despair. It was unimaginable.
There were gas stations open. I was riding in a truck and was just observing everything and everyone. No one was giving food out. Everyone was fending for themselves. This mass of people were all homeless and it was like I was just there in the middle of it all, watching them all night long. As I watched them wandering, I saw their depression and sadness. Our world was a much different place.
I wish I could convey the intensity and how I observed different people. It was just so much more intense than a regular dream.
I felt like God was letting me know that it was near by the way He allowed me to dream all night. It was like it was here right now… and left me with a sense of urgency to get the last preparations done.
I believe what the Lord was showing me was these things are VERY close. PLEASE, PLEASE PREPARE your homes, your families, your friends as much as you are able. Think about security, draw close to Him while it’s normal. Fast and seek God. Fill yourself with Him, even if you hear nothing. Fill yourself with HIM/His Word. Prepare Physically and Spiritually. Prepare your young children to understand the times and change that WILL come prepare them now to accept and to understand what and why the Lord would allow this. I feel this very strongly as I write this. Help the children understand that calamity and suffering brings repentance in hard hearted people and that God is so loving, He allows His own children to suffer for the good of all mankind.
Stay focused on Heaven and your eternal home when these things happen. Let it bring you joy and know your redemption draweth nigh.
He is with us. No matter what we go through He is there. Even when we feel like our backs are against the wall and there’s no option. He IS there. Our God does not abandon us. We might have times where we feel like He has forsaken us, but in those times that’s where we choose to believe anyway. That is when we press in and have faith in the HOLY ONE.
Brothers and sisters, God loves us and we will make it through to the other side if we hold onto our belief and all that it entails. Hold onto Jesus in these trials and don’t loose your faith. Those who endure until the end will inherit the KINGDOM of God.
What I saw was extreme famine and one last chance to go to the grocery store. I saw people that were shaking and displaced with no home to go to. We will never be prepared for what I was shown. Only through God will we make it.
Even in our despair, just as Christ was being beaten and crucified in his agony and despair, we must give them Jesus! We must lead them to Him. Fill them with His Spirit and great will be our reward. Encourage and we will be encouraged. Impart Him to everyone that will hear and receive.
We are a mighty army and the devil fears the remnant of the Living GOD. We will do the works that Jesus did and greater because He said so. God bless you all.
