I had the following dream on April 6, 2015 which speaks to God’s plans for awakening nations. We were in Australia at the time. I call this dream The Four Horsemen of Awakening meet Leviathan
I dreamed of the four horsemen of awakening and revival. They were Angels dressed in white and were linked arm in arm as the necessary team to bring nations into their destiny of breakthrough, revival and awakening.
1) The first horseman worked with the recent past moves of God, revivals, outpourings, movements. In the dream I knew he carried the anointing of the time of the Charismatic Movement which was a catch up movement of outpouring of the HG., even into denominational circles. I knew God is visiting the denominations again…pouring out his Spirit and giving people an opportunity to update or vacate those denominations. This horseman also represented old wells to be redug of revival and outpouring. Fresh pockets or wells of outpouring and revival are springing up throughout the earth.
2). The second horseman was the angel that worked with the prophetic movement. The Voice of the Lord is a Force! Psalms 29. I knew there was a fresh wind of revelation and power coming to the prophetic people. More people were embracing & being trained in hearing God’s voice. A whole new prophetic wave is being released.
3). The third horseman worked with the apostolic movement or anointing. Anointed to equip people to be Sent ones with signs wonders and miracles. Apostle is a military term. Apostolos means one sent into a territory on assignment to bring transformation. Many more saints are catching the understanding that they are to be sent ones into their world.
4). The fourth horseman worked with prophetic evangelism….the new kid on the block, he looked to be the youngest of the four but still very powerful and necessary for completing the team.
These four were linked arm in arm as a unified force with an assignment to bring awakening into nations.
Interestingly, the man preaching the night after I had the dream, had us all stand and link arms together as a sign we were partnering with heaven. He said it was the 100 year anniversary of the battle at Gallipoli in which the ANZAC armies penetrated the Middle East. Two years later it was these armies with the British that took Jerusalem back from 1400 year Muslim rule! These brigades were called the “Light Horsemen“. There are hundreds of testimonies from both sides of the battle for Jerusalem that soldiers report seeing lights, or light beings fighting with the Light Horsemen. Clearly both sides saw angels mobilized on the field of battle. They won the battle and liberated Jerusalem against impossible odds! As God’s people arise the Angels are being given order concerning us! God’s Lighthorsemen are arising!
The next scene I saw was that together they had hit a golf ball on a course (Remember, this was a dream) I didn’t actually see them hit it….how could four individuals hit a ball together? Why a gold course? The only thing I thought of was the scripture where Paul says “I have finished my course.”
But the ball landed a few feet from a giant crocodile. The angelic team was in a stand off waiting …..waiting for something to happen? for the crocodile to move so that they could play the next shot, but the game was delayed because the crocodile refused to move. These four powerful horseman were stalemated because of the intimidating and dangerous nature of the crocodile. Something needed to happen to change this. I knew the Angels were waiting on the people of God to engage in the battle which would release them to move forward & deal with resistance. I knew this crocodile represented the spirit of Leviathan which is being stirred to resist awakening and revival, to stagnate and stalemate the church.
I feel we will see Leviathan resisting awakening on every hand. Churches will resist awakening, most media will ridicule it, the government will even try to stop it. But God will have those who know how to Appeal to Heaven to bring a momentum shift!
The Hebrew word Leviathan actually means “to mourn.” The enemy’s strategy has been to get the church into a place of mourning over things that have gone against us and immobilize us with a sense of fatalism or hopelessness. But again, the word for reversal, haphak, is the one used when scripture says I will turn your mourning into dancing…..I will turn your sorrow to joy…..I will turn the curse to a blessing for you because I love you says the Lord. We must shake ourselves from grief and mourning and rejoice because God is taking everything meant for our evil and turning it for our good!
There was actually a big party waiting at the end of the course but the party was delayed because the final holes couldn’t continue until this ??something happened. I got the sense this crowd was the great cloud of witnesses yelling “come on! Finish it! Finish well!” I didn’t see this in the dream, but knew that the Angels were waiting on the Church to rise up & press the battle to the full….willing to sacrifice & work to see things finished.
A couple verses I have meditated on in regards to how we partner with heaven in making an appeal….
Job 5:8-11 | NIV. But if I were you, I would appeal to God;I would lay my cause before him.9 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,miracles that cannot be counted.10 He provides rain for the earth;he sends water on the countryside.11 The lowly he sets on high,and those who mourn are lifted to safety.
Appeal for Your House and Your Land!
2 Kings 8:3-6 It came to pass, at the end of seven years, that the woman returned from the land of the Philistines; and she went to make an appeal to the king for her house and for her land. 4 Then the king talked with Gehazi, the servant of the man of God, saying, “Tell me, please, all the great things Elisha has done.” 5 Now it happened, as he was telling the king how he had restored the dead to life, that there was the woman whose son he had restored to life, appealing to the king for her house and for her land. And Gehazi said, “My lord, O king, this is the woman, and this is her son whom Elisha restored to life.” 6 And when the king asked the woman, she told him.So the king appointed a certain officer for her, saying, “Restore all that was hers, and all the proceeds of the field from the day that she left the land until now.”
Phillistines= to roll in the dust of mourning, to wallow in yourself.
Isaiah 43:25-26 “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins.26 Put Me in remembrance; Let us contend together; State your case, that you may be acquitted.
An awakening is upon us! People are being awakened in the world! The church needs to awaken to go get them!
A Final Quote which really impacted me this year is by Winston Churchill.
“One of the signs of a great society is the diligence with which it passes culture from one generation to the next. This culture is the embodiment of everything the people of that society hold dear: its religious faith, its heroes…..when one generation no longer esteems it’s own heritage and fails to pass the torch to its children, it is saying in essence that the very foundational principles and experiences that make the society what it is are no longer valid. This leaves that generation without any sense of definition or direction, making them the fulfillment of Karl Marx’s dictum, ‘A people without a heritage are easily persuaded.’ What is required when this happens and the society has lost its way, is for leaders to arise, who have not forgotten the discarded legacy and who love it with all their hearts. They can then become the voice of that lost generation, wooing an errant generation back to the faith of their fathers, back to the ancient foundations and bedrock values….(Never Give In, The Extraordinary Character of Winston Churchill, Page 190)
