This dream came several hours before I woke up in the morning. I encourage you to heed the warning that I received, so we might help avert needless casualties.
I was before an altar, praying. One by one, the various objects on the altar began to catch on fire. First was the bottle of anointing oil; it would start to flare up, and I couldn't get it to go out. Then the scented candle began to catch on fire. And finally the cloth covering the altar began to catch... no matter what I did, I couldn't prevent it. Then the scene jumped to the aftermath.
The candle had broken out of its holder and spilled wax on and behind the altar. I picked it up, as a lump, and as I looked at it, it turned into the form of a soldier. I was very surprised! Suddenly, a child from my church was in the room, playing with a toy truck or bulldozer. As I had sat next to a bed near the altar, the boy was trying to play by running his truck over this wax soldier. I kept telling him to stop, but he wouldn't, as he was caught up in childlike fun.
Then a voice came out of nowhere,
"I guess that you means you better pray for the soldiers!"
At that, I woke up very startled.
Needless to say, I began praying after I was awakened. There was a sense of urgency all over me, and I continued to pray in the Spirit until I fell back asleep. However, I know this warning was not just for that one time, but also for in the days, weeks, months, and even years to come. There is great danger for the soldiers (not only those of America, but of all nations involved), and God is exhorting us to pray. Things will inevitably happen to bring them into danger (the altar catching fire no matter what I did, even as I was praying), but we are able to keep them from harm through prayer.
Please, pray in the Spirit for the soldiers involved in this conflict! You may be one of the few doing so!
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!

13This is the end of the matter. All has been heard. Fear God, and keep his commandments; for this is the whole duty of man. 14For God will bring every work into judgment, with every hidden thing, whether it is good, or whether it is evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14)
