Watchman: If You See Something, Pray Something!

Prophetic Dreamer: If You See Something, Pray Something!

Job 33:14-18(NLT) - For God speaks again and again, though people do not recognize it. He speaks in dreams, in visions of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they lie in their beds. He whispers in their ears and terrifies them with warnings. He makes them turn from doing wrong; he keeps them from pride. He protects them from the grave, from crossing over the river of death.

It happened again this morning around 3:30 AM. The Lord spoke to me in a dream and it was intense. In the dream, I was riding in the front, passenger seat of a car that my father was driving and I saw a news headline on my phone that I did not want to see. All I could say was; "No, no, no, no..." My father asked me what was going on but before I could say anything in the dream I woke up. It was time to pray. I sent a quick text to warn the person I saw in the dream and told some family members to pray. Then The Lord put these words on my heart, "If you see something, don't just say something, pray something."

I once had a dream that caused me to make the biggest career move I had ever made in my life. It was pretty straightforward. The Lord caused me to experience my future at that company in vivid detail. Did you hear what I said? He didn't tell me about my future, nor did He show it to me, He caused me to experience it myself. In the experience, some things took place that I did not like and it involved three people I worked with. The role of one of those people was expected but the other two shocked me.

At the time I had no idea what was happening to me but in the dream it was all real. Then God showed me the door. He didn't just tell me when to get out of there, He showed me how. When I woke up from the dream I shared it with my wife, we prayed then I obeyed God and changed my future. I share this personal example with you to demonstrate the proper response to a prophetic dream. If God shows you the future in a dream and you don't like what you see, change it the moment you wake up using the power of prayer. That's why God showed it to you in the first place. On top of that, if there's anything else you can do to change the situation, do it.

Acts 2:17(NKJV) - ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.

The Lord reminded me of this scripture this morning. In case you were wondering, the last days started on the Day of Pentecost so The Holy Ghost has been poured out. I'm no old man but I do dream dreams. In fact, some of the best decisions I have made in my life came out of guidance I received from God in dreams and visions. That may sound impressive to some but it's not. It simply means that God had to wait for me to sleep to tell me things I probably would not have listened to while awake. Perhaps, the noise of my busy life was so much that it was drowning out the Voice of God. So He took advantage of the silence and stillness of sleep. At that point, we could have a one-way conversation. He spoke, I listened.

I've had dreams that were so real that after crying in the dreams I woke up only to realize that I had already been physically crying in my sleep. One time, God showed me in a dream a specific elder leaving the church I was with several years before it happened. At the moment I received the dream, that elder was the most consistent and faithful servant of the leadership. It made no sense but I wrote it down and told my wife. Then it happened! I once had another dream in which The Lord warned me not to reconnect with certain colleagues. Needless to say, every lunch invitation I received has gone unanswered.

Isaiah 21:6-12(NKJV) - For thus has the Lord said to me: “Go, set a watchman, Let him declare what he sees.” And he saw a chariot with a pair of horsemen, A chariot of donkeys, and a chariot of camels, And he listened earnestly with great care. Then he cried, “A lion, my Lord! I stand continually on the watchtower in the daytime; I have sat at my post every night. And look, here comes a chariot of men with a pair of horsemen!” Then he answered and said, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen! And all the carved images of her gods He has broken to the ground.” Oh, my threshing and the grain of my floor! That which I have heard from the Lord of hosts, The God of Israel, I have declared to you. The burden against Dumah. He calls to me out of Seir, “Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?” The watchman said, “The morning comes, and also the night. If you will inquire, inquire; Return! Come back!”

In 2015, The Lord showed me in a dream that a country I will leave unnamed will invade the country I live in but not in the traditional way. Instead of the expected military approach using ships, submarines, planes, drones, tanks and satellites, they will infiltrate with subtlety. Their troops will enter the country through immigration, business, education, work, vacation, etc. and set up camps across the country in warehouses in the middle of industrial parks. They will acquire the military equipment they need either through local vendors or by funneling them into the country through "legitimate" businesses that can import them.

For years, they will continue to build their numbers and execute their strategy by hiding in plain sight. They will acquire large trucks similar to the ones that the military uses to transport large numbers of troops into the battlefield. When their numbers reach critical mass and the time is right, they will strike. While everyone else is looking to protect the borders from dangers outside, the real enemy will attack from the inside. In the dream, I saw them driving their trucks into neighborhoods like mine and taking people to the prison camps. The Lord allowed me to ride in one of the trucks to the camp and showed me what was going on there. I didn't like what I saw. Even then, they were subtle. Few understood that a war was underway, people simply disappeared.

This entire plan is similar to the story of The Trojan Horse. If you don't know what that means, you can look it up. Again, I will not mention the name of this country and I will tell you why. Early in 2017 I tried to share a little from this dream in one of my blogs and mentioned the country's name. By the time I tried to publish the blog my website was mysteriously shut down. It was only a few months later the whole world found out how powerful they are at using The Internet as a weapon of war. So I won't be making that mistake again because I know their bots are crawling all over this website right now.

Obviously, I can't pick up the phone and warn the Government to prepare for what I saw in a dream. Who exactly am I supposed to call and why would they even listen to me? Here's how I see it going, "Good morning. Yes, I have a message for The President. The Lord showed me in a dream.... Click... Hello? hello?" That's where today's Word fits in; "If you see something, pray something." The Lord directed me to pray about what I saw because that's the extent of what I could do at the time. He then reminded me that there's a horde of preachers advising the President. I needed to pray that one of them would hear from God and issue a warning. Maybe someone has done so already. I hope so.

In the end I won't know if my prayers changed the future of this country but I do know it changed the future of my family. Maybe everything I saw will still happen exactly the way I saw it but with one minor edit. I will exit the circumstances early. God didn't show me all of this to leave me in the middle of it without a way of escape. I don't expect to defeat any army by myself but all I know is that we won't be riding in those trucks to any prison camps. I can't tell you how we're going to do it but I can assure you that it won't be happening. When the time is right, The Lord will warn us and show us what to do to avoid the situation.

Ezekiel 33:1-9(NKJV) - Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman, when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people, then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.’ “So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me. When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you shall surely die!’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. Nevertheless if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.

Read the scripture carefully. At the beginning The Lord talked about the people of a land choosing someone from their territory to be a watchman. It's then their responsibility to respond when the person they choose issues a warning. In that case, they choose the watchman so they should be willing to respond because they appointed the person to watch on their behalf. Yet, God did not say that Israel would choose Ezekiel as their watchman. It was God who chose Ezekiel. Israel had no choice in the matter and neither did Ezekiel.

If I could be honest let me tell you the truth. I like my sleep. I don't like waking up around 3:00AM on a random morning unless it's with a Word from The Lord. Otherwise, it's not worth it. If The Word is for me and about me, I don't mind at all. However, sometimes God wakes me up with a Word for you and I have to find my computer and write a blog. Hopefully, you will read it and do what He says. It cost me my sleep and like I just said. I like my sleep. 🙂

You don't make yourself a watchman for your family, friends, city, workplace, church or even country. God makes you a watchman. Once He does that, you don't get to choose what you do about it. If God has called you to be a watchman, you have to watch. Otherwise, you're in trouble. Watchman, what of the night? What is it that you see? If you see something, don't just say something, pray something.

Don't Waste Today Worrying About Tomorrow!

Don't Waste Today Worrying About Tomorrow

The blog is back. For a while I've been thinking about writing again but I finally sat down and made it happen. The Lord's been saying a whole lot since we started The Body Church and because we have the church, we just share it there. However, there are some things that He says during the week that are not necessarily just for our church family in Atlanta so instead of waiting for Sunday morning we'll just share it here. Consider this your invitation to join us on our journey with The Lord. Now that the pleasantries are over, onward with today's blog.

Matthew 6:34(NKJV) - Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

As I thought through what God wanted to share with us in this first blog He said, "Don't waste today worrying about tomorrow." Every day is precious and not one should be taken for granted. Many of us spend an inordinate amount of time and emotional energy looking ahead instead of making the most of what's right before our eyes. Some of us worry about the future and suffer from anxiety attacks over the "what ifs".

What if things don't work out in our marriage? What if I get fired from my job? What if the economy crashes? What if the oil price goes back up? What if I get sick and can't afford the treatment? What if we lose the house? What if nobody buys our product? What if nobody shows up to my event? What if I lose my investment? What if there's another terrorist attack? What if this happens tomorrow? What if that happens tomorrow? Jesus instructed us to never worry about tomorrow but deal with today's issues today then when tomorrow comes we can deal with with tomorrow's issues then.

Matthew 6:27-33(NKJV) - Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? "So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? "Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

So why did Jesus make such a big deal about worrying? Any thoughts? Look at Matthew 6:27 above and then think about it. Have you ever worried yourself out of a problem or has worry ever been the solution that led you out of a bad situation? Jesus instructed us not to worry because worrying makes nothing better and many times, only makes things worse. If you don't like a situation and you can do something about it, then do it. If you can't do anything about it put it in God's hands and trust that He would do something. Regardless, don't worry about it because that's a complete waste of your time and energy.

So if God doesn't want you to worry what does He expect you to do when you feel completely helpless? Find out tomorrow.
