Dream 437 – I can see clearly now the rain is gone
Received on Wednesday, October 7, 2020
The 5th day of Sukkot. Sukkot is also commonly called the Feast of Tabernacles, the Festival of Shelters or the Feast of Ingathering.
Thank You for allowing me to have another day here! Thank You for this beautiful fall day. While it is overcast, the yellows, reds and oranges still create a dramatic landscape. Thank You for all that we have. Thank You for my husband, children, family and friends, both near and far. Father, and more than anything, thank You for being our God, the only God, over all things! I love You! I had a dream last night…
Sub-dream 1 “The Clock Tower has fallen” begins…
I was in a town somewhere in the USA. The town was picturesque. The buildings were mostly built of brick. The day was overcast. I had just exited a café on Main Street with a friend. Right there before our eyes, the giant brick bell tower with a clock fell. It fell across the bank. It sliced a corner off the bank and we could see the bank vault inside. The destruction exposed that which we could not normally see.
Before the tumbling stopped, the tower also fell across several cars, a bus and a good portion of Main Street. People were screaming and rushing around to save those caught in the tragedy. While I would normally jump in to help, I could not as I was only there as an observer. No one could see me. I heard shouting in the distance…
“Oh no, our beautiful town hall has fallen!”
“Oh no, the bank…where will we get our money?”
“Oh no, our busses and transportation…how will we get to where we need to go?”
“Oh no, the clock…our time is up!”
Many people were trapped under the fallen rubble. There were screams of pain everywhere. It was a horrible thing to witness. A knock woke me up, but only in the dream, not in real life.
Sub-dream 1 over…
The news has not been good lately anywhere. It is all doom and gloom. One of our children is having trouble and being used at church. Never a surprise. It has been heartbreaking to watch. It seems churches have shifted away from being a beacon of hope. Many now fight just to keep their doors open and their pews full.
At my daughter’s college, they are teaching an art curriculum that is extremely controversial…at least it is to me. I have been truly in shock at the magnitude of the historical revisionism. Art history was one of my majors in university studies. Even though this is an overview course, they are taking great effort in revising this and pushing their agenda.
On Monday, the instructor showed some art from the Greek culture at around 500BC. The instructor was telling everyone that middle aged men would have sexual relations with young teen boys and that this was a great honor. She then made some comment about how the church later put a stop to this ‘honorable practice’. She then stated that it was important to bring honor back to these forgotten practices…
As far as I recall, I don’t remember any art reflecting this. What is she even talking about? Where is this even coming from? She then spoke about the Greek gods and what an honor it was when they came down and had sexual relations with humans…
How is this even allowed? This has nothing to do with art history at all. This is sick! The world has fallen. My daughter then did a gutsy move. She handed in a paper about visual beauty that centered around Jesus. Given the liberalism, we warned her that this would not be well received. Fortunately, she at least received an 84. However, in her critique, the instructor told her that, next time, it should be ‘visual and not just a concept’…
Oh Father, this is the world now! It has fallen fast. Please help us. As I was praying to You in the car, my phone started playing songs randomly. The songs that came on were clearly no accident. I even had an eagle fly within ten feet of my car. This is the closest Passover I have ever had. There were five songs altogether…
The first song was “Hall of Fame” by The Script. Here are the lyrics…
You can be the greatest, you can be the best, you can be the King Kong banging on your chest. You can beat the world, you can beat the war, you can talk to God, go banging on His door. You can throw your hands up, you can beat the clock, you can move a mountain, you can break rocks. You can be a master, don’t wait for luck, dedicate yourself and you are going to find yourself…
CHORUS: Standing in the hall of fame… and the world’s going to know your name… because you burn with the brightest flame… and the world’s going to know your name… and you’ll be on the walls of the hall of fame.
You can go the distance, you can run the mile, you can walk straight through hell with a smile. You can be the hero, you can get the gold, breaking all the records they thought never could be broke. Yeah, do it for your people, do it for your pride, how are you ever going to know if you never even try? Do it for your country, do it for your name, because there’s going to be a day…when you’re…CHORUS
Be a champion, be a champion, be a champion, be a champion…on the walls of the hall of fame. Be students, be teachers, be politicians, be preachers. Be believers, be leaders, be astronauts, be champions, be truth seekers. Be students, be teachers, be politicians, be preachers. Be believers, be leaders, be astronauts, be champions…CHORUS
You could be the greatest, you can be the best, you can be the King Kong banging on your chest. You could beat the world, you could beat the war, you could talk to God, go banging on His door. You can throw your hands up, you can beat the clock, you can move a mountain, you can break rocks. You can be a master, don’t wait for luck, dedicate yourself and you are going to find yourself…standing in the hall of fame!
Comment: This is a secular song with definite undertones of something great to come. While the lyricist was likely referring to our ‘self-made’ power, this could instead be viewed as us with God’s power after our Great Change. We will come from all walks of life. We will be able to go to God’s door. We will break rocks with our hands. This is all to glorify the one and only true Power Source, our Awesome Jesus, in His Hall of Fame!
This ‘Hall of Fame’ song played in one of my dreams of an airport and my going on a flight right around the time of my mom’s death. This was sometime from September 23, 2015 to October 10, 2015, but I don’t remember clearly. When listening to the song this time, I had an epiphany. The part of the song where ‘the world’s going to know your name’ I now realize is You, Father. The world is soon going to know Your Name!
The second song was “Start right here” by Casting Crowns. Here are the lyrics…
We want our coffee in the lobby, we watch our worship on a screen, we got a rock-star preacher, who won’t wake us from our dreams. We want our blessings in our pockets, we keep our missions overseas, but for the hurting in our cities, would we even cross the street?
CHORUS: But we want to see the heart set free and the tyrants kneel, the walls fall down and our land be healed. But church if we want to see a change in the world out there, it’s got to start right here, it’s got to start right now. Lord, I’m starting right here. Lord, I’m starting right now.
I’m like the brother of the prodigal who turned his nose and puffed his chest. He didn’t run off like his brother, but his soul was just as dead. What if the church on Sunday was still the church on Monday too? What if we came down from our towers and walked a mile in someone’s shoes? CHORUS
We’re the people who are called by His name. If we surrender all our pride and turn from our ways, He will hear from Heaven and forgive our sin. He will heal our land but it starts right here. We’re the people who are called by His name. If we surrender all our pride and turn from our ways, He will hear from Heaven and forgive our sin. He will heal our land. CHORUS
Comment: This song represents us. This is the new wave of what we are about to do in His Name. This song represents ‘the beginning’!
The third song was “Let the Day Begin” by The Call. Here are the lyrics…
Here’s to the babies in a brand-new world. Here’s to the beauty of the stars. Here’s to the travelers on the open road. Here’s to the dreamers in the bar. Here’s to the teachers in the crowded rooms. Here’s to the workers in the fields. Here’s to the preachers of the sacred words. Here’s to the drivers at the wheel.
CHORUS: Here’s to you my little loves with blessings from above. Now let the day begin. Here’s to you my little loves with blessings from above. Now let the day begin, let the day begin, let the day start.
Here’s to the winners of the human race. Here’s to the losers in the game. Here’s to the soldiers of the bitter war. Here’s to the wall that bears their names. CHORUS
Here’s to the doctors and their healing work. Here’s to the loved ones in their care. Here’s to the strangers on the streets tonight. Here’s to the lonely everywhere. Here’s to the wisdom from the mouths of babes. Here’s to the lions in the cage. Here’s to the struggles of the silent poor. Here’s to the closing of the age. CHORUS x 2
Comment: This song was also about our new beginning…the one to start very soon!
The fourth song was “Right Here, Right Now” by Jesus Jones. Here are the lyrics…
A woman on the radio talks about revolution when it’s already passed her by. Bob Dylan didn’t have this to sing about. Didn’t know it could feel this good to be alive.
CHORUS: I was alive and I waited, waited. I was alive and I waited for this. Right here, right now. There is no other place I want to be. Right here, right now. Watching the world wake up from history.
I saw the decade end, when it seemed the world could change. At the blink of an eye. And if anything. Then there’s your sign of the times. CHORUS x 3
Comment: Yes, the world will truly be waking up to a new reality…right here, right now!
The fifth song was “Breath of Heaven (Mary’s Song)” by Amy Grant. Here are the lyrics…
I have traveled many moonless nights, cold and weary with a babe inside. And I wonder what I’ve done. Holy Father, You have come. And chosen me now…to carry Your Son. I am waiting in a silent prayer. I am frightened by the load I bear. In a world as cold as stone, must I walk this path alone? Be with me now. Be with me now!
CHORUS: Breath of Heaven, hold me together. Be forever near me. Breath of Heaven. Breath of Heaven. Lighten my darkness. Pour over me Your holiness. For You are holy. Breath of Heaven!
Do You wonder as You watch my face, if a wiser one should have had my place? But I offer all I am, for the mercy of Your plan. Help me be strong. Help me be. Help me!
Comment: This song is sung from the perspective of Mary. Mary was feeling alone as she carried Jesus in her womb. It is about the magnitude of God’s call and how difficult the road is to travel on. This is Your call to us, Father! There are many similarities. You spoke to me while this song played. This reminded me of all of the self-doubt I have had with these dreams, the delivery of the Seed of Your Truth. The delivery of the Truth of the amazing place in Heaven You have created for each of us. The delivery of the beauty of Your incredible love for us!
NOTE: Please let me state this clearly here…I am no Mary! Indeed, I am no one really…just a writer as You call my pen to paper. Each time You do, You give birth to more of who You are, Father. Oh, how You love us! I am thankful for You in all things. While I doubt myself and my abilities, You never doubt! Yes, Father, You NEVER doubt! Yes, the world is going to know Your name…AND SOON!
Jesus: “Erin, come up.”
I was on the side yard of my property with my feeding tray. There were many small birds flying directly to the tray. I laughed and set the tray down to find Jesus. I ran to where He sits on the large rock (which is currently not there in real life), but He is not there.
While I wanted to cross over into Heaven, the bridge was not there. I closed my eyes and prayed for the bridge to appear. When I opened my eyes, there was Uriel sitting on his horse on the other side of the bridge. I ran over to greet him. Even though he looked as if he had been through quite the battle, he still smiled at me.
Uriel: “Erin, I come today to give you a message from God. All you see around you is about to change. While it has seemed at times that all has been lost concerning your hopes and dreams, this is not the case.
“Now, the dream you had takes place in the center of the land. The town is sleeping until a great shaking brings down the highest tower. This symbolizes that time is up. When this tower falls, the time as you once expected to view it as will have stopped. The tower falls across the only bank in town. This bank represents daily provision and savings in the vault.
“The brick structure then came over on top of the road, stopping the flow of traffic. This street was the main thoroughfare. People were caught under the rubble. All they could do is scream under the weight of the bricks. Transportation, both public and private, also halted. What was peaceful became disrupted.
“However, God will send help, a crew of rebuilders, just like Nehemiah. They will not just rebuild what was destroyed, but will also restore hearts and lives. God’s Army will be a rebuilder of broken walls and lives. God’s power will be made known through you and those He sends. All will know He has sent help from His sanctuary. God has never forgotten the promises He has made to you, your family and your friends.
“God is about to fulfill all of His promises. Nothing will stand against you with any success as the Lord will pour His Spirit into you. Your enemy will flee at the sight of you. Your light will shine like the sun…but really the Son of God.” He smiled. “You will be strengthened. Though you will see darkness and destruction before you, planting and abundance will be before you wherever you step.
“People will then ask you ‘whose children are these?’. They will then know you are from the seed of Heaven, a beulah, and joined with God. While you will be loved and admired, you will also be feared. Nothing…no weapon formed by man…shall be able to come against you.”
Me: “But, Uriel, I am a nobody. How can I do anything as I am?”
Uriel: “Erin, the Lord has found you pleasing. He knows every part of you. However, what you judge about yourself, what you see or even what the world sees…is not what God has formed in you. Your heart is good, Erin. While you are not perfect, this is ‘as expected’ as God does not expect something from you that you are not capable of, understand?”
Me: “I am thankful for that.”
Uriel: “Perfection is a tool of affliction that the enemy uses against God’s children. It is a lie. The waves that have come against all who God has called are evil. This wave of evil is a great tsunami of lies, deceit, debauchery and perversion. All forms of evil are now being sold as loving and peaceful. All that is good is now being drowned out by evil. What you now hear and see, along with anything else before you, are now mostly untrue and unclean.”
Me: “While I see that this is now obviously true, it is still so hard for us to watch.”
Uriel: Smiling. “Do not worry, Erin, as a Great Tsunami of God’s Grace is about to sweep across the land. God has heard the prayers and petitions of the righteous. He has found mercy upon those who love Him. He has heard your cries.”
Me: “Oh Uriel, thank you so much for this wonderful message from God.”
Uriel: “I must go now. Always remember that God is with you. Erin, the Lord’s Spirit is in you. Where you go, the enemy must flee. Where you step, God’s Kingdom will be known. He is about to do something in your days you would not believe even if you were told.” He smiled. “You will even break rocks.” He turned on his horse. “Be encouraged, Erin. Always remember…greater is He in you than he who is in the world. Time is up!”
Uriel immediately disappeared. Right after he disappeared, I suddenly heard the song “I can see clearly now” by Johnny Nash. This is such a cheerful song and put a huge smile on my face. Here are the lyrics…
I can see clearly now; the rain has gone. I can see all obstacles in my way. Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind. It’s gonna be a bright, bright sun-shining day. It’s gonna be a bright, bright sun-shining day.
I think I can make it now; the pain has gone. All of the bad feelings have disappeared. Here is that rainbow I’ve been praying for. It’s gonna be a bright, bright sun-shining day. Look all around, there’s nothing but blue sky. Look straight ahead, nothing but blue sky
I can see clearly now; the rain has gone. I can see all obstacles in my way. Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind. It’s gonna be a bright, bright sun-shining day. It’s gonna be a bright, bright sun-shining day. Gonna be a bright, bright sun-shining day. Gonna be a bright, bright, bright sun-shining day!
Note: As I was looking up the lyrics, I stumbled on a news story outlining that Johnny Nash died just yesterday. Please pray for his family. As for Johnny Nash, I feel in my heart that he is already up in Heaven…‘seeing clearly now as the rain is gone’!
