I have searched for the paper on which I wrote this dream, but have yet to find it. I cannot even remember exactly in what year I had the dream (I believe the early 90's), but I know that it was a long time ago by now. I am sharing this because it connects to more recent dreams I have had about the U.S. and China, and may prepare us for what's to come. Most importantly, I beg you to pray to our Father in heaven that the most lives possible might be spared in this vicious conflict to come.
I was walking around downtown Cincinnati, amidst the debris left from repeated bombardment from the skies. Cincinnati had been under attack from Chinese battleships for most of the day. It was now very late at night, likely around 1-3am. A large, Chinese battleship was slowly making its way up the Ohio River, continuing to pound downtown Cincinnati with missiles. The flashes in the sky were followed by earth-shaking explosions as the rockets hit various buildings and parts of the ground.
While this was going on, I was able to find children who had been orphaned throughout the city, and they began to follow me. I was telling them about Jesus and explaining how He was in control and that they shouldn't be afraid. They were all listening, and completely trusting me, and I felt great joy at knowing the Lord was leading me to more and more of them.
After some more of this, the dream finally ended.
When I had this dream, it was completely unexpected. I had no interest in China, and there was no talk of war in the media. For some reason, it never left my mind. After recently being called by Yahweh to minister in China someday, and having a dream about them and the U.S. battling in what would be called World War IV, I felt I should write this one down too as a prophetic word from God.
I don't know if this dream is totally literal, as it is quite difficult to imagine how Chinese warships might make their way onto the Ohio River. But, God knows the future, and what He plans and foresees for our world is often quite unimaginable to us.
Let's pray that casualties remain at a minimum when such a thing happens, and that the most people possible hear the Word of the Lord, and come to Him in this great crisis.
As you read this site, you will hopefully come to know Yahweh more fully.
But all of this continuing knowledge is useless unless and until you come into union with Him. I use the word union because it is truly a marriage. It is that deep connection we all seek, for which we most often look in other people. However, the truth is that our hearts will only be fulfilled when we enter that union in fullness with the One Who made us.
This is the grace of God, that He has not stayed distant for us only to worship as Creator. But He has come unto us, even become one of us—in His Son, ChristJesus—in order to share an intimate union with us. He desires such closeness that it truly will envelope our entire life, transforming us into something new and wonderful.
You may have already entered this union with Him and only seek to know Him better through reading here. But if you have not, as you do read, let this Gospel sink into your heart as you read it now.
God loves you, and has cast your sins into the sea. He has sent His only Son as the Savior of the world—that includes you.
That Son, JesusChrist, was born as a man through a virgin who had given her life to Yahweh; He lived without sin, reflected the glory of His Father, God, in all His words and deeds, and was persecuted even unto death because of it.
His death upon a cross was the powerful explosion that separated you from your life of death. It remains for you, now, to enter into that death with Him. As you die to the one you are now, a person separated from God from your many sins, you will be born anew, with a nature predisposed to live rightly. This gift is free to you, with nothing you can do to earn it. It is the mercy of God to offer it to you, as He loves you so much! All you must do is receive it by trusting Him to have delivered you. Simply place your life in His hands and embrace the freedom that came through that death on the cross.
The Gospel is that Jesus did not remain dead, but rose again on the third day after His crucifixion! Death could not hold Him, as He was without sin. And so death will not be able to hold you, as you identify with Him fully through your trust in Him. Let go of yourself and confess Him as Lord of your life. The power of His death and resurrection will work in you all that your Creator has destined for you. You will truly enter a new life and experience that intimate union you have been seeking all of your life.
So ponder these words as you read here of this great God—Yahweh—and all that He has revealed to His creation. Let His Spirit testify to your heart that these words are true, that God is Love, and that He sent His Son so that you might receive the life that is unbound by time and space. As you feel that witness in your heart, simply believe and receive what He is offering to you, even now, and begin your new life as a child of God.
Please write to me and let me know when you take this step, as I will be your brother in Christ—we will be one in Him!
