"FIRE" Dream (Friday, March 15th, 2024)

Updated: Mar 16

This morning, I woke up pondering a dream I just had. First of all, I should say that I don't often remember my dreams. I rest so well usually that I don't remember anything from my sleep. I also don't watch TV and have not watched much television most of my life, which may be one reason I don't have much imagination going as I sleep. Many years ago, I had a couple of dreams that I am certain were from the Lord. After sharing today's dream with a couple of trusted intercessors, I believe I received confirmation that this dream was, in fact, from the Lord.

In real life, I like to visit a log cabin in the Georgia Mountains that backs up to a national forest as often as possible. It has been dedicated to prayer and seeking the Lord. In the dream, this is where I was. I had come alone. Behind the cabin, there is nothing but miles of forest. I was about a football field length out into the woods doing something on a platform in the woods. Suddenly, I realized the woods had caught on fire just behind me, and in seconds, the forest was engulfed in flames, and I was surrounded by fire. Without hesitation, I knew I had to go through the fire. It was my only way out. I also consciously remember realizing that I may die going through the flames. Instantly, fire-related thought came to mind: "Stop, drop, and roll." So, without any delay, I jumped into the flames in a somersault through the air. As I was somersaulting through the fire, I consciously had the thought, "Did I die in the flames?" because I didn't feel any fire on me, so I was wondering if it was so intense that I just didn't feel it and instantly left my body.

As you know, when you're dreaming, you often feel real emotions and thoughts as you don't necessarily realize you are dreaming. However, I did end up rolling out of the fire on the other side. I began to run towards the cabin. In the dream, six other homes were lined up in a semi-circle around the cabin. (Yet, those homes do not exist there in real life.)

As I was approaching the homes, I was screaming "FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!" and people began to walk out onto their back decks and patios as they heard me yelling fire. I didn't see how they responded. I only saw that they heard me. Then, I woke up.

I shared this dream with two friends, Shantel Leyba and Pastor Sylvia Laughlin. As I shared with Shantel, she said, "I can't believe you just said "Stop, drop, and roll" because, for some strange reason, I responded to another friend three days ago in a text that was not even about fire, and I said, because I just felt I was supposed to say it: "Stop, drop, roll." Then, Shantel told me she would send me the text for confirmation.

So, I said: Let's think about that. What does that mean in the spiritual sense? "Stop" is to "Be still and know that I am God," and "Drop" is to pray and worship, and "Roll" is to Keep it moving and press ahead. I was like, wow, that has a new meaning for me that I will never forget now.

Then, I called Pastor Sylvia and shared all of this, and she said, "Well, I'm gonna blow your mind even more." She is currently in NYC, helping to facilitate a ministry boot camp. She said, "Guess what our preaching was on this morning? It was on going through the fire. We must be prepared to go through the fire and realize that fire will come, and we must go through it.”

Then she said, "I believe that dream was from the Lord, and He is speaking. He has told us that He will establish His word with two or three witnesses, and you just happened to ask Shantel and me, and both of us have a confirmation. The fact that you were not burned in the fire and that you were warning people that Fire was coming, although you weren't permitted to see how they responded. When was the last time you somersaulted in the natural? God has equipped you spiritually to go through the fire."

I am in awe of how the Lord uses each one in His Body to edify the Church. If I had kept this to myself, I would not have received confirmation, but as a result, I believe the Lord is speaking.

As I meditate on the dream, this comes to mind: “So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober.” - 1 Thessalonians 4:6 We cannot have a mixture of worldliness and godliness. The Lord is calling us to come out from the ways of the world and to seek Him with our whole heart and soul.

Some kind of fire is coming! "His bride (the redeemed) has prepared herself." - Revelation 19:7 AMP
