I awoke just after 1:00 am on June 11, 2014 from a dream which still haunts me. I was with four other people, and we were all just standing and talking quietly. We were in a very large, ornate room, sparsely but very expensively furnished only around the perimeter. It looked as I would imagine a ballroom in the White House or a European castle with marble, gold-leafed moldings, huge crystal chandeliers, matching wall sconces, and antique tapestries.
I don’t know what building we were in, but I know we were in America,
in the future. There was another small group of people standing off in a
far corner of the room, and they were carefully watching us. They
looked like military soldiers or guards. They wore dark-grey uniforms with red piping
and they were in charge. They looked at us with tolerance but distrust.
For our part, we kept a wary eye on them too, and were careful not to
raise an alarm. We were all actively engaged in our conversation, but we
kept it quiet, subdued.
The strangest thing about the dream is that everyone in my group,
including me, was speaking fluently in Russian. Now I only know how to
say three things in Russian: yes, da; no, nyet; and thank you, spasibo.
Hardly enough for a conversation!
The people with whom I was conversing in Russian were all political
big-wigs, like senators or governors. They were basically there as
diplomats. I don’t know their names or titles, or what we discussed. But
I do know that we were all “invited” (commanded) to be there to meet
with the current leader of the country. We chatted while waiting our
turn for an audience with the leader. Some of these were representatives
from the old government, and some from the new.
Even in the dream, I marveled that I should be included in such
limited and exclusive company, and wondered what on earth they could
want from me.
As I puzzled over it, awake, I asked the Lord, “What was that all about?!”
And almost before my query was completed, I instantly knew the answer: “RSA.”
Huh? Shaking my head at the enigma, I asked again: “RSA? RSA? What on earth is RSA?”
And again, instantly, “Russian States of America.”
That was beyond my ability to comprehend at 1:00 in the morning, and I
fell back asleep. But over the next couple of days, the Lord revealed
it was a prophetic warning. Not a future absolutely set, but one that
will come about unless we repent from our wicked ways, turn wholeheartedly back to God, and pray for His mercy to prevent it. (If...My people who
are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and
turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive
their sin and will heal their land. --2 Chronicles 7:14, emphasis added)
I have asked the Holy Spirit to confirm whether these events are
firmly set or just a prophetic warning that can yet be forestalled, but
all I feel in my spirit is a sense of foreboding.
We need to do all those things delineated in 2 Chronicles 7:14. It sounds like a tall order, but
born-again Christians have the Holy Spirit within to make it possible.
I pray for God to turn our hearts back to Him, and for Revival,
virtually every day. Please join me. Christians need to remember that
prayer is warfare against evil, and releases God’s spiritual forces to
fight for us. But prayer without repentance (turning away from our
wrong-doing) is robbed of much of its power. I look to God’s mercy –
He forgave Nineveh when they repented, and He was willing even to
forgive Sodom and Gomorrah if only ten righteous men could be found in
those cities. How many righteous are needed to forgive our country? I
don’t know, but I think it’s a good idea for each of us to live as if we
were the tenth.
