Posts Tagged ‘dreams’

I think it has been several years since I have written anything new on my blog. It feels a bit odd to be sitting back down and fumbling around with my thoughts but here it goes. The first week of February 2014 I had a dream that had a setting in the deep south and I knew the year was 1949.

Old SKELLY STATION

In the dream I was 13 years old. I was with a group traveling across the country in a school bus. The bus came to a stop at the edge of a small town. I was asked to get out of the bus and walk into town and find out where we were. I realized in the dream it was Sunday and was under the Blue Law meaning business’s could not be open on Sunday and all of them were closed. I walked down the road that spiraled down into a valley. I came across a Skelly gas station. It was closed, but the door was cracked open so I peaked in, widening the gap of the door. Inside were about 15 African American men ranging in age from 15 to 90. I startled them as they were having a bible study. I then realized why there was no one visible in town, they were all in church. Then I realized why the men were meeting in the gas station, They were not welcome in any churches in that town. Instantly I saw they were afraid I was going to disclose their location. I began to back out of the doorway, when a heard a song about the name of Jesus in my head. It was not a known song, but seemed fresh like God had just given it to me. I began to sing it and and all of the men began to sing with me. I thought it was the most beautiful sound I had every heard. All of the sudden all the colors became alive even the oil cans had light shinning out of them. We all knew the Lord was in the room with us and the dream ended. The dream stayed with me all week as pondered it and wished I could remember the words to the song.

About a week later I had another dream and again I was 13 years old and the year was the same, 1949. This dream began with me in the back of a brand new red 1949 Chevrolet pickup truck. I was in the back of the truck leaning over the cab with the wind in my face as we were rolling down Winner Road in Independence Missouri. I began to motion to stop the truck and to let me inside. The driver pulled over and I hopped out and climbed inside. In the seat was a boy about the same age as me in the dream. Then I looked over at the driver, at 1st I thought it was my grand father George Holmes then with a closer look my eyes bugged out, it was “Harry S Truman.”  I was shocked and sit in amazement. The boy looked out the window and saw a Ben Franklin s Five and Dime store. He said hey can you let me out I need to stop and get some candy. Harry pulled over and out jumped the boy. As he jumped out He noticed Chevrolet written on the fender of the truck then glanced at the President who had a red hat on matching the color of the red truck and said in big letters Chevrolet. He asked Harry whats with the hat? He laughed and said I just like Chevrolet. Off went the boy to buy His candy. A deep stare came from the president as he questioned me, “what did you think about that?” I thought about it for a minute and said ” The boy has the audience of the president of the United States and wasted His question on a hat!” The president laughed at me then after a pause he said “so what’s your question?”  Again I pondered the question and after a minute I said “How long is the ride?” Harry grinned and with a wink He said, “Now that’s the right question”

Instantly I was awake and thinking wow that is the 2nd dream in two weeks that took place in the  year 1949 and I was 13 years old in both. All that week I wondered If there was something to the dreams. I know that Harry S Truman started His 2nd term in 1949 and that the previous year he had helped with  the start of the new nation of Israel. I realize that many Christians think that started a time countdown to the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ. I also had previously met Harry S Truman’s niece Mary Gracey Truman. She had told me that Her uncle believed that His destiny had been planned by God to purposes tied to Israel. Interesting that in both dreams I was 13 the age when a Jewish boy becomes a man. Anyway I did not make to much about it but daily the dreams replayed in my head.

Another week passed and I woke at 4:44 from a dream about the other 2 dreams. Now I am sitting up in bed, what is with all this? I still don’t know but is starting to make me wonder if something is really happening either something internal I need to work through or something a bit more weird.

This  3rd dream took place at a large round table. Everyone was older like in their 90’s and all seated around the table. They were discussing world events and time lines. There were baskets of grapes and bottles of wine intermingled. I thought wow this is the Prophet Joel’s place. I dared not open my mouth but had a feeling there were both terrible things and wonderful things being planned. I only heard judgment being mentioned but kept waiting for the conversation to turn to blessings but did not. Then the one in charge spoke to me. He had long white hair and beard and very serious. He said to me its coming and they are all doing their own agenda’s and will not understand anything that is about to happen. You must tell Regina Shank so She can explain to them what has happened after the fact. It will be healing salve to many. I had no time to reply or ask questions tough I had many. I was awake and wide awake at that.

A week later I did talk to Regina by phone and She asked me to write the dream down. She has been the prayer coordinator for the state of Missouri for several national and International prayer groups fr years and is highly respected.  I decided I would put the dream up here and see who finds it. It might just be crazy dreams with no purpose at all BUT just in case here it is. Blessings John

The sitting of the dream below: In real Life I had just had surgery, my stomach had pushed through a hole in my diaphragm. I had unbelievable pain with food getting lodged in my esophagus. They pulled my stomach down and fixed the diaphragm. they took a muscle from down by my spleen and wrapped in over my stomach to anchor it and keep pressure off of the diaphragm. I was home recovering and taking no pain killer because of past reactions, but managing very well. My wife Dianna’s mother had a major heart attach and She had to rush to OKC to be with Her. I was home kinda felling sorry for myself, and spending a lot of time praying and seeking the Lord. In that condition I had 3 dreams each night that were almost the same below you will read the account.

Preparing the Jacob generation for the time of Jacob’s trouble. I tried to shake it off but I kept hearing it in my head. It was my second night back in my own bed after surgery. I had been dreaming the same dream, as the night before. I was a photographer, along with two of my good friends Kevin Minor and Dan Zacharias. We had been given the task by the Lord to travel around the world and document it’s condition. We were investigating places of dark demonic delusions as well as places where the Kingdom of God was shining brightly.

We had traveled by bikes, canoe, and on foot to the most remote area’s, and had found ourselves at the end of a trail as I woke up. It was a moment frozen in time, with those words “Preparing the Jacob generation for the time of Jacob’s trouble” sounding inside me. It was just like the night before except the night before I woke with words “pray your flight does not take place in winter.” I was shaken but the next chapter was unfolding. I had fallen asleep with the TV on listening to christian music. But now with my eyes wide open I watched the preacher as He said Psalms 24:7 was the key for preparing the Jacob generation for the time of Jacob’s trouble. Now I had not taken my pain killer for 24 hours so I was thinking this must be real this can’t be a hallucination, get your pen and paper and write this down. So holding my stomach I slowly pushed through the pain and got out of bed and found my journal and began to write. when I finished I drifted right back to sleep.

The next night the same thing happened. I woke early on August 24 th 2009 I had finished the same photographer dream, but it ended with “you have 30 days to study Jeremiah 30” that would be Sept 23rd 2009. and “Study american history through the eyes of the indigenous.” I have an idea that it is the Lord, and time will tell for sure. I am off from work recovering from the surgery, and I am on a liquid diet. I am dealing with some pain due to the fact I can’t stand the way I feel on pain killer. I have the time to study and the Lord has a captive audience, meaning I’m not going anywhere.

I have already noticed something in Jeremiah 30 that I have never seen. I am not sure why, I was not aware that Jeremiah 30 was about  Jacob’s trouble. I read it. I remembered many end time messages, taken out of those verses. One thing I had never heard or seen was verse 11. WOW, is all I can say right now, here it is.

For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet I will not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.

What in the world does this? What is the bottom line? I know what it says. If that is literal then America and many other nations will yet be brought to a “FULL END” Will God use another nation to do it? Will He allow an evil leader to become president to bring it to ruin from within? Or perhaps natural disasters. The key might be all the Jewish people in America, If the Lord return to Israel it is now time and they say NO what might He do to make them Go. In Egypt they were held by slavery not the love of their current life BUT God used 10 plaques to get them out. You might say “Oh John you are making a big deal about NOTHING”  Think about the numbers. There are approximately 13.3 Million Jewish people in the whole word.  You you believe only 4.95 million or 37% live in Israel. Before the Internet christian books would say they have all gone back to Israel except for a few. That was actually a lie or people talking without knowing. The truth is, information is now very accessible and we know there are far more Jewish people in the US compared to Israel. That would be 6.5 million or 46% of the worlds Jewish population. Think about what that could mean when God says go. PS I thought He said Go in 1948, if He did he whispered and not many heard Him. My guess when He says it for real they will all go one way or other. PERIOD.  

I will close for now check back in see what I find along the trail. I hope it is not a bunny trail, even so studying the Bible is a win win.

It is early 09/09/09 I am posting a link for a message on Jacob’s trouble by Art Katz. It is not what we have been spoon feed but I think it will challenge us all. http://artkatzministries.org/the-time-of-jacobs-trouble/

It is now 05/20/11 since writing this article I had more dreams about Jacobs trouble, about an underground railroad. I have seen many things to which I will keep to myself. I will say this I recently visited an area that was in the underground and I was told I was the 3rd person who came there with that dream. I believe the time is near the middle east is in chaos there is new determination within politics to to divide Israel. Jews will be persecuted again like no other time including nazi Germany and those who have heard the Lord will be a safe-haven for them as they travel HOME. Bank on it

9/9/11  , It has been 2 years since my dream, earthquakes, war, world wide economic disaster, need I say more. Just a couple a days away from the 911 Ten year anniversary and our Nation has turned every which way but to God. Most every group of friends I have are doing major adjustments to their lives in preparation for increasing hard times. My thoughts are we have not seen anything yet, HOLD ON TO GOD like never before.

Well its March 2014 and I had this dream back in 2009. I have recently had some more dreams that seem to be end time related. You can check one over to the right about 1949. But what I really would like to mention is I forgot to ever check out Psalms 24:7. If you are reading down you saw that while having one of the dreams about Jacobs trouble I woke and as I did I heard in the natural on the real TV not in the Dream this phrase coming from a preacher. He said ”   Psalms 24:7 was the key for preparing the Jacob generation for the time of Jacob’s trouble.” Well I just checked it out so I will post the scripture in context now.

 

The Earth is the Lord’s

1{A Psalm of David.} The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

2For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

3Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

4He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

5He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

6This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

7Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

9Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

 

Now that is interesting since the Verse about 24:7  says 6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah. There, Jacob is mentioned, and that reminds me that  God promised old Jacob that His descendants would inherent the land of Canaan for ever. Well that is the problem, God made a promise and He has to fulfill it. The Jewish people can do it the easy way or the Hard way BUT they will go back. The Key verse says the King is coming and for the gates and doors to get ready. The messiah is coming and He will find the Jewish people there in Israel when He comes. When antisemitism raises its ugly head the church better be part of the solution not part of the problem. Get ready for the underground railroad. It is being built now so if your theology has you in heaven and I hope you are right but if you find yourself here and your beliefs were a few degrees off don’t be terrified God is the same faithful God either way . Have a great day.

January 13th early in the morning my wife Dianna woke me up and told me “you sure are sleeping loud” I knew it was true I had been dreaming I was back in Africa and I had been dropped into the middle of devastation. I was working to get orphans into homes. It was overwhelming, one minute I was in Africa the next I would be back in Missouri. Then the dream slowed down into slow motion. I had been trying to get someone to explain to me what had brought about such devastation in Africa and how I ended up in the middle of it all.

There it was the longest train I had ever seen, it was a old coal burning train. It was pulling passenger cars and on each car was written Show Me Orphan Train. In the windows were little faces pressed against the glass. At this point I am crying looking into the faces of desperation to be loved, it was overwhelming. In the dream Linda a 20 year old Ugandan girl that is living with us while going to college pointed at the children and said “John it’s about them” I woke immediately with all kinds of emotions.

I thought about the meeting I have today with my friends from Alma Missouri introducing them to Gizaw my friend from Ethiopia who will be talking to us about the need for orphanages in Ethiopia. I thought about our friends John and Sharon who minister in Kenya that had just been at the house talking about the conditions there. I thought about my own experiences in Uganda, Egypt and Ethiopia.

Then I thought about a teaching that Regina Shank does on overcoming rejection and She tell’s stories about the orphan trains that would move from the east coast to the Midwest dropping off children to waiting families. Of course there are some bad stories about abuse and using the kids as slave labor. As a whole the Midwest provided homes, I myself have a great grandmother who was an orphan and was taken in to a wonderful family in Beatrice Nebraska.

Here is an advertisement below that appeared in the Troy Free Press Feb 11, 1910. Troy is in Lincoln County.

Orphan Train in Black & White – Diamond Someday “above”

Here are the words to a blue grass song: Orphan Train “below”

By (Utah Phillips)

Once I had a darling mother, though I can’t recall her name
I had a baby brother who I’ll never see again
For the Children’s Home is sending us out on the Orphan Train
To try to find someone to take us in

cho: Take us in, we have rode the Orphan Train
     Take us in, we need a home, we need a name
     Take us in, oh won’t you be our kin
     We are looking for someone to take us in

I have stolen from the poorbox, I’ve begged the city streets
I’ve swabbed the bars and poolrooms for a little bite to eat
In my daddy’s old green jacket and these rags upon my feet
I’ve been looking for someone to take me in

The Children’s Home they gathered us, me and all the rest
They taught us to sit quietly until the food was blest
Then they put us on the Orphan Train and sent us way out West
To try to find someone to take us in.

The farmers and their families they came from miles around
We lined up on the platform of the station in each town
And one by one we parted like some living lost-and-found
And one by one we all were taken in

Now there’s many a fine doctor or a teacher in your school
There’s many a good preacher who can teach the Golden Rule
Who started out an orphan sleeping in the freezing rain
Whose life began out on the Orphan Train.

Well I have to get going and get ready for Church, I just wanted to get the dream down before I forgot it. I hope it will stir you up to pray for those all over the world that have no place to call home and no one to call family. They need to know they have a father who has declared so from heaven. Some times we need to be reminded as the church we are His hands and Feet and more than that we are His Family with open arms and open eyes.

Psalms 68:4-6  Sing to God, sing praise to his name, extol him who rides on the clouds– his name is the Lord– and rejoice before him. 5 A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. 6 God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.
