A TORNADO IS COMING TO YOUR CHURCH–Pt 1

God gave me a dream on Saturday morning May 14, 2011, at 5:30AM. I feel that this dream is vitally important for what our nation is going through with the disasters that we have been experiencing as well as prophecy being fulfilled for these the last of the last days. This is a message directed to the church.

I was on a bus full of church people and the bus began to be tossed around like it was caught in a tornado. It spun around and was rocked side to side and to and fro. The people never moved from their seats as though they felt secure in them. As long as they stayed seated they were comfortable and safe–a false sense of security. The shaking of the bus became very violent, yet no one moved. There were sparks flying from the roof of the bus.

I stood and began to rebuke Satan and all his demons. I told the people that we were under demonic attack and for them to start praying and rebuking the demons. As I was talking I made my way to the rear of the bus. There was a small room there like a restroom or closet. I could dimly see through the door and there was a silhouetted figure behind the door. There was a bright light behind it causing it to be silhouetted. I opened the door and a creature came out–a demonic creature I thought. It was white and very fat and round. I was frozen with fear. I had no confidence in my position in Christ. I was so fearful that I could not speak. I tried to rebuke Satan but all I could do was stutter. Finally, I was able to utter one word repeatedly, Jesus.

Finally, I had what appeared to be garbage can lids in my hands. I tried to crush the creature between the two lids in my hands. As I brought the lids together, like cymbals, one on each side of the creature, the creature exhaled out a white cloud and it was no longer round and fat. I woke up. I tried to go back to sleep but scriptures began to pour into me, and I knew that this was a God-given dream.

I then asked God to give me the interpretation of the dream. This is what I felt the Holy Spirit was giving me. Church people are sitting comfortably on the church bus of life, seemingly on life’s journey to heaven; but God is about to send the wind of His Spirit to His church. His design is to blow away the garbage, or to say sin,in our lives. The wind of God’s Spirit has been attempting to blow through His church and the hearts of His people, but we’re content to sit comfortably on our religious “bus seats” and ignore it. We’re not even moved by His Holy Spirit when it is moving among us.

Acts chapter 2 verses one through three says, “And when the day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all in one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty ‘wind’, and it filled all the house where they were ’sitting’. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as a fire, and it set up on each of them.” Notice when the Holy Spirit is moving among God’s people it comes as a wind that blows into our lives and sets us ablaze for His glory. This is what is coming to the church as we sit on our “bus seats,” our pews. There is a mighty wind of God’s Spirit that is about to blow into the church that will not only cleanse us of all our sin, but it will set us ablaze for His glory.

The sparks that I saw falling from the ceiling of the bus were indicating the fire of God falling on His people. As the fire of the Holy Ghost falls upon us it will expose our sin, the garbage in our lives, that hinders our witness for Christ and prevents us from living in victory.(Numbers 32:23) This coming wind will also set us ablaze for His glory by burning the dross out of our lives. Mal.3:2-3,”But who may abide the day of His coming? And who shall stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire, and like fuller’s soap: and He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and He shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.” When a refiner is purifing gold or silver, he boils it over fire in order for the dross to bubble to the surface. As it comes to the top he scoops it off. He does this until there is no more dross and when he looks upon the liquid he can see his own image reflected in it. So it is with the fire of God that is coming to the church. When it comes it will burn all the dross out of our lives until it is all gone, and when He looks upon us He will see a reflection of Himself. He said that He will purify “the sons of Levi,” this is the saints. We are a royal priesthood; we are seated in heavenly places as kings and priests. This is speaking of us. Once He has sent us His fire of purifying and we have been cleansed of our sins and the dross in our lives, we then can offer up to Him an offering “in righteousness.” We then are ready to face the coming judgments of God with the confidence that we are His and He will use us in these last days to bring glory to His name.

In the dream I stood and began to rebuke Satan and demons. I have always been able to rebuke Satan and his demons and was confident that I would win the battle–but not this time. My rebukes had no effect on the violent wind. God has shown me that it isn’t Satan doing this but Himself. It is God bringing judgment to His church. “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God. And if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them (those in the church but not truly born-again. Remember he is speaking about the church and those in it receiving judgment.) that obey not the gospel of God? (The gospel that teaches us that to be born-again one must die to themselves [Romans 6]). And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly (the carnal “christians”, the double-minded in the church)and the sinner (in the church) appear?”(I Peter 4:17,18)

We will think that the violent winds in our lives are of Satan, but it is God Himself come to clean house. When Jesus entered Jerusalem He went into the temple and cleansed it. He is coming again and He wants God’s house clean–thus the tornado of God is blowing. He wants holy, pure, clean lives ready to impact our world and ready to harvest souls. A church ready to be like Jesus! Not the religious, self-fabricated Jesus that we claim is the real deal, but the Jesus of the Bible that changes lives! If your Jesus isn’t changing you, who would want Him? The Jesus of the Bible changes the lives that He saves. This wind may take on the appearance of sickness, death of loved ones, financial chaos, lost jobs, homes going into foreclosure, false accusations, broken homes, disfunctional families, etc., but all of this is the wind of God designed to purify us–He wants our attention! He is preparing a bride for His Son. One without spot or wrinkle. One who reflects His image.

As I went to the rear of the bus and looked at the smoke glass door on the small room I saw the creature. I realize now that the bright light behind the creature is the presence of God. And in this dream the creature that I saw was solid white. The interpretation of this is the fact that this creature was pure. The creature was also fat and round this simply means that it was full of blessings, full of revival, full of miracles, full of healings, signs and wonders, all the things that God is wanting to give to his church. This creature is the Holy Ghost Himself. He is full of manifestation gifts, blessings, revivals, miracles, healings, signs, and wonders and he is just waiting for the church to be pure enough to receive them. The reason why the Holy Ghost was “fat” is because he has been dammed up as it were with all of these blessings of God not able to allow them to flow out to God’s church because of the garbage in our lives. He will not cohabitate with contrary spirits.

In this dream when I first faced this creature I was full of fear. I thought it was because of the presence of evil but it was the presence of purity instead. I was unclean. I felt unworthy to be in the presence of such purity. All I could do was utter the name, Jesus. It seems as though we have enough religious knowledge to know to invoke the name of Jesus but not the lifestyles of Jesus that gives the use of His name its power. Only pure, holy, righteous lives will be victorious in the war between good and evil that is coming in these last days. Only pure lives can defeat the enemy of our souls.

Another thought that came to me as I was praying for the interpretation of this dream was another view of what the silhouette in the closet stood for. As I was praying for the interpretation of this I felt the Holy Spirit asking me, what are we hiding in the closets of our hearts and minds? What spirits are we hiding in the closets of our hearts?

In this dream I tried to use garbage can lids to crush this creature but we must realize that we cannot destroy the works of demons with garbage in our lives. As I brought these garbage can lids together on each side of the creature it exhaled out a white cloud. The cloud was the stored up blessings, revival, miracles, healings, signs, wonders, manifestation gifts, and the greater works that Jesus spoke of. As we take our garbage, or to say our contrary spirits, to God He will release blessings, revival, miracles, healings, signs, wonders, manifestation gifts. The Holy Ghost will breath out upon the church these things from God. Revelation 5:8 tells us as the four creatures and the 24 elders were before the throne John saw, “golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.” We have been praying for blessings, revival, miracles, healings, signs, wonders, gifts, etc. Our prayers will be mixed with the power of the Holy Ghost and poured out upon us when we allow the Holy Ghost to expose and remove the dross, or to say the garbage, out of our lives.

Hebrews 12:26-27 reads, “Now He who promised, saying, ‘Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.’ Now this, ‘Yet once more,’ indicates the removal of all these things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.” God is shaking up the church as well as all the earth. We are experiencing record earthquakes, floods, droughts, wildfires, tsunamis, tornadoes, etc. We’re witnessing nation against nation and kingdom against kingdom that Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24 as never before. The terms for nation and kingdom means ethnic groups or religious groups, or simply groups of people. We are now seeing religious groups and ethnic groups as well as other groups of people really coming against one another in all parts of the world, especially in the Middle East. We’re seeing famines as well as pestilence, the diseases that usually follow famines and earthquakes, like never before. And Jesus said in Matthew 24:8 “all these are the beginnings of sorrow.” We are about to witness the last great move of God! The last great awakening! And it will be a call to holiness! God is shaking the earth and the church is not exempt from this shaking–His judgment has begun!

We will continue looking at this tornado that is coming to our churches in next week’s blog.
