A Dream of the Ruin of a Nation.

Before you begin to read the following, please take the time to read a prophecy that in many ways mirrors my dream, this by a much better man than myself, even Stewart Dool back in 2007, shortly before the ‘Credit Crunch’ hit.

Okay... back to my dream, around 2004 I had an dream which I knew even then was prophetic, events since testifying it as so.

The Dream

I found myself in a very large warehouse type of shop, I was looking at some DVDs. The shop was packed with goods from top to bottom, as well as shoppers. We can all remember how it was in those boom years, crowds of shoppers pushing trollies so overloaded with goods that they were spilling over the sides, huge queues at the check-outs etc... Well, that's how it was.

Next I heard a clear strong voice say:

I am going to send a ‘dire’ famine to this land

I then heard a roaring sound and knew there was a great wall of fire fast approaching the store, it hit and unhindered passed through the building. I curled-up into a ball and as the flames passed by, they ‘licked’ at me but didn’t touch me.
When I looked up the fire had gone, it had neither damaged the building or the goods, in fact almost everything ‘seemed’ to remain the same. The shop was still packed with goods but there was one big difference. . .

Apart from the person at he check-out, there was only two other people and myself in the whole building!

My Interpretation of the Dream.

I am going to send a ‘dire’ famine to this land.

The ‘Dire Famine’ that God was promising to send was clearly represented by the fire that passed through the building. The fire that God sent was quick and sure, but the results of it were not only devastating, but enduring.

The words ‘To This Land’... surely points to the building representing the United Kingdom, and the contrast between before and after the fire, (hardly anyone in the store) points to a catastrophic loss of purchasing power by the British citizenship. So it is certainly an economic issue, but the mention of the word ‘dire’ is very troubling.

I was always confused by the word “Famine” being used in an economical setting, and until recently believed it related solely to a scarcity of money, but am often reminded of the words of Amos to ancient Israel...

Amos 8:11
“The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign LORD, “when I will send a famine through the land - not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD”.

This is more terrifying than a lack of bread, and the consequences far more grave. For if God withholds His spiritual bread from Heaven, then the Nation will and I believe is, staggering from one vile chalice to the next, the proposed ‘Redefinition of Marriage’ being just one sign of this. And so the more we stagger into sin, the more God’s wrath will fall upon this Nation.

Now to get to one of the most worrying aspects of the dream, the fact that the result of this ‘fire’ was that around 90% of the purchasing power of the UK was totally lost (Actually it was worse than that, but I can not bring myself to type it!) The effects of this happening is completely beyond my comprehension, that isn’t a recession but some-kind of ‘depression’.

How long will this last? You know as much as me, I find a little comfort, although it maybe misguided, in the fact that there were still goods in the store, unlike Russia during it’s darkest hour. This I hope relates to us coming to repentance as a Nation... who knows, all things are possibly with God!

I acted upon my dream as much as I was able at the time, then having neither a website nor health, still today lacking health. I distinctly recall talking to a bank manager, whom I told there was to be an economic collapse... even of the banking system. To which he mockingly replied “Oh, like if The Two Towers were destroyed”. He then proceeded to inform me how solid the banking industry was, and how it was backed-up and couldn’t possibly fail.

As of May 2013, many believe that the recession is nearly over, and that we are on the verge of coming out of it. However I believe that as the bruise follows the blow... our bruise is yet to be fully realised.

Some will respond to this by trusting in their wealth, counting the number of friends and family they can call upon if in need, trusting in the empty promises of men, none of which can save he who God rebukes. Turn to God quickly, while there is still time, cease trusting in men... but learn to trust in the living God, the maker of Heaven and Earth, the sea and everything in them.

Psalm 82:2-4
2 - “How long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked?
3 - Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.
4 - Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

Turn-off that TV, stop being ‘entertained’ by violence and perversions, seek after the truth and do good. Parents eat with your children, and train them in the way of righteousness... that at the end they will be a blessing and not a curse, when you are old and your bones ache.

Yet even in these last hours, the rich grow even richer... whom with the masses knocking upon their doors, can give a hundred excuses to charge ever higher rents whilst paying their workers diminishing wages. They care nothing that their wealth is built upon the tears of children, the misery of divorce, humiliation and the destitution of the poor... as exhausted parents struggle pay 50-60% of their meagre income to put a roof over their children’s heads. But God is not deceived, He who formed us neither sleeps or slumbers, but will repay each man according to his deeds.

So I say again, acknowledge your sin and repent, turn to righteousness and do good, maybe even now God will hear from Heaven and forgive, and protect you from the coming trouble as it passes through your life.

James 5:1-5
1 - Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you.
2 - Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes.
3 - Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days.
4 - Look! The wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty.
5 - You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter.

Please understand this, our God ‘is so merciful’... who sent His one and only Son to save not the good... but the wicked, would you allow your son to hang upon a Cross... spat at and naked to save vile men?
Yet He is no fool either... remember when Peter asked our Lord...

Matthew 18:21-22
21 - Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
22 - Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

The Jews of old counted in ‘sevens’... 70X7=490. It was 490 years from when God rebuked the Jews for their previous sins, by having them taken captive to Babylon, to when the Jews would... 38 years after Jesus said those prophetic words, be crushed by the Romans in 70AD.

Yes He is merciful... but He is not as some believe a fool, delighting in sin. For the crimes of the UK have reached His ears... that He can no longer forebear, who once might have waited until death to judge the wicked now has been forced to judge the living. May we as a nation acknowledge our sin, and by the way of repentance escape the wrath to come.

2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
