They’re saying it’s unusual weather. A couple of weeks ago water supply companies announced intentions to ban the use of garden hosepipes in order to save water. Two extremely dry winters have left supplies at low levels. As I’ve not followed weather developments I’ve not been thinking about it, but an unusual and lucid dream left me wide-awake a week ago today.
That dream featured very dark stormy clouds with very heavy rain and stormy winds – which has since been increasingly so! (Friday’s Telegraph photo is uncannily similar!)
I recalled a prophetic word that Lance Lambert gave last August and which reported the Lord as saying, “I will change her (Britain’s) climate, even her weather…”. Then last night I re-read Jarrod Cooper’s blog 10 Clouds in the Sky dated 5 January and noticed that he opens, “It’s 2012 and I hear the “sound of a heavy rain” (my emphasis)….”!!
The well-known Bible verse on rain is from the early prophet Joel, as at verse 2:23:
“He has given you the former rain faithfully, and He will cause the rain to come down for you – the former rain and the latter rain in the first month”
My NKJV Study Bible’s note on this is interesting: ‘The latter rain is the spring rain that occurs just before harvest. This outpouring of refreshing rain which renews the fertility of the parched ground prefigures the outpour-ing of the Spirit, which will bring spiritual renewal (as in vv 28-32).’ Those later verses are quoted in Acts 2:17-21.
Also, I recall Dr Stone’s reference to unusually strong winds during New Year and which signifies, she suggested, an unexpected and strong move of the Holy Spirit, or breath of God. So, perhaps my dream about weather may have some significance, especially as it strongly hints at the Lord’s plan:
Cannot recall the full scenario, but am with my wife and a couple of believers in a public building that’s been badly damaged by strong wind and heavy rain. Someone comes to tell me of their concern over what’s happening all around and I sense a deep fearfulness.
So to my very great surprise, I hear myself replying, “It’s all to do with the two words received this week!” That is, with the prophetic words I’d emailed and posted as, “Get ready!”
At that moment my mind is very lucid and clear, as though knowing in my spirit that what I was saying was of Holy Spirit. [The deep certainty was identical to my response when dreaming last 3rd Sept about angelic preparations for setting up the Kingdom.]
Afterwards, the weather gets worse as a tempestuous wind flattens almost everything before it, but we remain safe…
Upon waking, I was atremble with excitement over perceiving the deep truth behind ‘get ready’. Also because of this, I sensed the Lord wanted me to insert a reference in my just reworked outline of the purpose of this blog. Then on putting my hand to my NKJV study Bible, ‘Jeremiah 10’ sprang to mind and to which I immediately turned. The opening three verses read:
Hear the word which the LORD speaks to you, O house of Israel. Thus says the LORD,
“Do not learn the ways of the Gentiles [unbelievers?]; do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven, for the Gentiles are dismayed at them, for the customs of the people are futile;…”
The chapter is headed ‘Idols and the True God’ and those opening verses describe well what I dreamed. Then I noted verse 10 and 11 read:
But the LORD is the true God, He is the everlasting King At His wrath the earth will tremble, and the nations will not be able to endure His indignation.
Thus you shall say to them: “The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth shall perish from the earth and from under these heavens”…
Could what had been unfolding in my sleeping and waking mind indicate that the Lord really is up to something very powerful, something that may shake and remove all that is not of Him?
Have we not a little food for thought??
