Dream for the American Church Part 2


 

      
Dream for the American Church Part 2
            I expected after sending out the last dream I’d had about the American Church that for the most part God was done speaking to me on the matter.  However last night I had another dream that was the 2nd part to the dream before.  If you missed the first, please view it here: http://annamaquino.blogspot.com/2017/02/prophetic-dream-for-american-church.html Let me reiterate again that this is not something I do flippantly, and it’s with the utmost care that I’m sharing this second part.
            To briefly catch you up on the first dream, I dreamt I was already married and marrying some other person.  I knew I was making a huge mistake.  God was telling me that as a whole the American church is attempting to stay in covenant with him, and unite with the world.  He was saying that the church knows that they are doing wrong, but really they would rather go with the status quo then be right.  My first dream was a plea from God that we as His American church would return to their first love.
            Last night I had a dream that I was already married to one person and I was getting married to this other person.  I kept trying to tell the people I was around how ludicrous it was that I couldn’t be getting married to someone else.  However I was going along with the flow of things.  The ceremony was getting ready to take place that day and we were running around trying to get last minute things together.  The ceremony kept getting more and more postponed.  Finally I knew the time had come where I had to tell my parents this was happening.  So I went to this weird pod/apartment like looking place where my parents were staying.  The crazy odd thing about it was that I had to unlock it to get in.  When I finally got inside we talked briefly.  I just couldn’t tell them what I was doing.  This reverential fear came over me.  I knew I was doing wrong and to tell them shook me to the core.  We never talked about it, but I was so convicted sitting in the same room with them, that I left their dwelling knowing I couldn’t go through with the second marriage, and I was calling it off. 
            When I woke up truthfully for a moment I’d forgotten about the first dream I’d had about 10 days ago.  Then it hit me. .. “Oh! This is a continuation.”

            What I really feel God was saying in the second one was the responsibility the older generation has to the younger and how much we need to see that, honor that, and embrace that.  My parents were representative of that generation.  But yet they had been shoved off into some kind of compartmentalized place.  In a lot of ways we have done that in today’s culture.  The old way of thinking is dubbed “not mainstream or backwards”.  When really they didn’t even have to tell me I was doing wrong.  Just being in their presence I knew I was wrong.  I think in many ways the older generation is frustrated at the younger, and have allowed themselves to be silent.  I think this dream is meant to be a wakeup call to those.  The crazy chaos that has been enveloping this nation is a result of a tribe of folks that need to hear the truth.  They need to hear the voice of the generations.  Even the Bible talks about this in Titus 2:3-5 (ESV) “Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.”

            This dream is about the older generation taking a stand, having a voice, and training up the younger.  If you’ll notice in my dream, my parents didn’t even have to tell me how off I was, but being in their very presence made me feel so convicted I had to change my ways.

            May we all stand for righteousness sake.  May we all do our part to help a younger generation see God. My we all find our voices to influence those around us.

            Remember God has awesome plans for your life.  Get excited!

Prophetic Dream For The American Church


 

Those of you that know me know that I’m very careful and particular about what I share publically especially when it comes to prophetic words and dreams.  I want to be very careful about I how treat the things that God is specifically saying, and it’s not something I do flippantly. Having said all of that,  I had a God encounter and dream this weekend that I need to publically share.  Dear American pastors, church members, and leaders, PLEASE feel free to reshare.  I feel what God has spoken to me needs to be talked about.  I am not a doom and gloom preaching judgement kind of prophetic voice either, but as this word does bring correction, I just wanted to clarify that.   I am just a vessel, and I share this because I feel God is speaking to the American church.

            On Saturday evening 2/4/2017, I was watching a short video and suddenly I could feel God almost shake me.  He said, “I’m going to give you a specific dream for the American church.”  To which case I responded “Ok.”  I had a strong impression it would be that night.  While there have been many times God has spoken to me through dreams it is abnormal for God to tell me so specifically He was giving me one.

            That night I woke up at 3am.  I looked at the alarm clock and said to God, “I thought you were going to give me a dream?”  He responded by telling me that He was getting ready to and to go back to sleep.

            In my dream I saw myself wearing my wedding dress walking towards an outdoor chapel. There was a wedding going to happen, and I knew it was mine.  The wedding dress was mine when I married Dan.  It had been worn and wasn’t pristine.  It had some dirt smudges.  It was in those early moments I realized that I was already married to Dan.  The weird thing was this wedding was for me and another guy that I know (but I’d like to add here I knew him over 20 years ago and have never had romantic feelings for him.)  There were people beginning to fill into this outdoor chapel.  The groom and I were taking selfies and posting them to social media. I was baffled by all of this because I was still married to Dan.  Family and friends were coming into the chapel and no one seemed to care that I was already married.  I began to almost mourn and grieve inside of me.  I slipped to the back of the chapel and found myself texting Dan apologizing to him that I was making a horrible mistake.  I knew I was but I was still going through with it.  I reasoned that so many people had worked to put on this wedding it didn’t matter I was breaking covenant or didn’t really like this guy.  I justified it that this man must have needed a mother for his daughter and I was going to go through with it. 

            When I woke up it was 4:30am.  I went down to my kitchen and began to pray.  What God showed me the dream was about was the exact thing Dan felt when I told him about it.  Me marrying this other guy when I was in covenant was Dan was about the church in America.  What God was saying is that they are marrying the world while they are in covenant with him.  The wedding dress is old and reused.  But they don’t seem to care.  It’s less then God’s best for them, but they are just going along with what people want them to do.  They are too afraid of disappointing the people around them.  Me marrying this guy was the American church breaking their covenant with God and trying to make a covenant with the world. The thing was I didn’t even really want to go through with it.  I knew deep down that I was making a mistake, but yet felt powerless to stop it.  There are so many American Christians that are breaking their covenant with God and uniting with the world.  What I felt the Lord saying through this is ‘My Dear American Church, if you will return to your first love then I will run all the more towards you.  You haven’t gone too far that I cannot redeem you.  Come to me my bride, and let me make your robes like new. Remember the covenant you made with me. Return to me, and I will restore you to your rightful place.’

            I feel this is a wakeup call for the American Church.  I hope they are listening.  May we choose not to break our covenant with God.  May we realize that we can’t have our feet in His kingdom and in this world.  May we return to our first loves.  May we run the race set before us with passion and zeal.  May God bring revival to our land. 

            Remember God has awesome plans for your life.  So get excited!
