All hail the Lamb, enthroned on high,
His praise shall be our battle cry.
He reigns victorious,
His name is Jesus,
He is the Lord.
This refrain was repeated and then again, and yet again and again, over and over. The young man led worshippers higher and higher; as though with eagles spiralling upwards on heaven-bound thermals…
This was no short chorus, but many minutes devoted to praise. Immediately, therefore, I recalled 20-odd years ago being high over the Mediterranean and looking down on southern France. Suddenly, I heard lots of loud voices filling the void beyond the Earth – all singing that same popular earthly chorus. And there was a proclamation from on high!
As an almost new Christian I’d never heard such truly awesome, harmonious singing as that of the angelic host. Harmony upon harmony kept being added as their praise of The Captain of Hosts, the Lamb of God, soared up, and on and on, through the heavens as well as wrapping around Earth. Utterly unforgettable!
[NB. This is a copy of post published 24 January 2013 but now posted afresh to introduce a few posts on this topic based upon the following awesome revelation…]
Upon checking my notes I found that first dream/vision had occurred exactly 21 years before (ie. 6 January 1992). Could this be of significance, not only that 21 = 7 x 3 but also because that day is known as The Epiphany of the Lord – the celebration of God’s revealing Jesus to the world as its true God, Messiah and Saviour. (For an excellent explanation click here).
Additionally, I’d had an email about dreams many Muslims are having of Jesus. Also, I was prompted to dig out and then blog about notes for a prophetic word, 2011: an ‘epic generation’ – and noticed it too had been publicly delivered on the same feast day!
So, perhaps this reminder happening on the 21st anniversary of the vision means the declaration I heard is now about to be fulfilled? The situation to which it referred has since grown far more grave, as indicated in the PM’s recent remarks about al-Qaeda.
Whatever was it I’d heard? My brief notes made at the time are as follows:
The BBC late evening news on 6th January 1992 announced that leaders in the Muslim community wanted to establish a Muslim parliament in Britain, but:
In a dream that night I saw Western Europe, mainly France and the Mediterranean, as if from the space shuttle and heard the popular worship chorus ‘All Hail The Lamb’ being sung, as if in the atmosphere! This praise was repeated many times most melodiously, as though by angelic choir, and seemed to spiral upwards. Then I heard a very loud, authoritative voice declare, “AS COMMUNISM FELL SO, TOO WILL ISLAM FALL!”
Many years later the opening events of the Arab Spring led me to share that ‘event’ with a few friends. By then I’d discovered a couple of prominent prophetic voices had had a similar revelation. [My interpretation of this dream proved to be of encouragement to a lady missionary in Marseilles and an evangelist in Egypt; this email refers.] Continue reading
