On July 1, 2017, I had and released a prophetic dream where I saw a gigantic messenger of Satan coming into the United States from the East Coast. I called out to it from the walls of a large fortified city and said, "I am a watchman over this land and I command you to tell me by what authority do you enter this nation?" It said, "I come here by the permission of the church, who has granted me access to come plunder and devour right in the midst of them."
The principality had the wings of an angel but the tail of a dragon, and it looked hideous There was great darkness upon it, yet it had the outward appearance of unusual light. In its hands, it carried a large black book with the words written on it, "The gospel of accommodation."
The Spirit began to show me massive deception is sweeping the church, and it is fast asleep. There is a very real war in the spirit realm over the true gospel, the gospel of self-denial and this false gospel, the gospel of accommodation, which is seeking to overtake the American Church. The gospel of accommodation encourages American Christians to fit Jesus into their life rather than making Him their life. This false gospel requires no sacrifice, no commitment and no death to self. It is dangerous, deceptive and we are going to witness God beginning to highlight preachers and churches who preach this false gospel of accommodation.
The Messenger of Satan (Gulf of Mexico)
Again on Sept 1, 2017 (exactly two months from the last dream), I had another prophetic dream where I saw this same messenger of Satan appear in the Gulf of Mexico. Instead of carrying a book, he was now carrying a large boat paddle and began to stir the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and his paddle reached as far as the Caribbean. I began to hear the earth literally groan. The water was crying out. That's the only way I know how to explain it. As this principality began to stir the waters, several demonic spirits manifested and revealed themselves to me. They specifically were hatred, fear, violence and depression.
The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, "Jeremiah, you must know that the spiritual storms that are manifesting in the earth are far greater than any physical storm that has touched the earth. Physical storms are limited to a region of people. These spiritual storms that are coming will have the power to affect every area of culture. The physical hurricanes that have come and coming are devastating, but the spiritual ones are greater. The physical hurricanes that will manifest in this season will only further serve to reveal and open up the eyes and ears of the church to the spiritual storms of hatred, fear, violence and depression that are upon them."
The Paul Revere Anointing
As the Spirit spoke this to me and I watched this messenger of Satan stir the waters in the Gulf of Mexico and even the Caribbean, as these demonic spirits manifested into spiritual storms, I suddenly found myself in the state of Texas. There was an army of horse-riders waiting for me and prepared to run. I relayed to them what I had seen, not only on July 1, but on Sept. 1 as well. I shouted, "The anointing of Paul Revere is upon us! Now is the time to warn the American church of the coming spiritual storms. We must warn them of the false gospel of accommodation. Watch as God uses the physical storms to highlight those who are preaching this false gospel. We must warn the church of the hatred, fear, violence and depression that will try to overtake them. If they give in, they will look no different than the world. Days are coming where parts of the church will become so blended with the world that you will have a hard time discerning the difference between the two."
As I and the army of horse-riders rode with the anointing of Paul Revere to American churches, we visited three specific types churches. (This was almost identical to a dream I had in 2015, but some details God gave me were different.)
The Sleeping Church
The first type of church we visited had "sleeping church" engraved on its doors. As we opened the doors to these churches, every one of them was in the middle of a service. We would hurry in to relay the message of what we had just seen and heard, only to be shocked to see everyone in attendance, including the leadership, sucking on pacifiers. While this type of church could hear our words, they had no ability to respond. We began to cry out and say, "Why are you silent, church, why are you silent? Though you are awake, you are sleeping!"
In the dream, the Holy Spirit immediately spoke to me Ephesians 4:14 (NIV): "Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming."
The Hyper-Grace Church
The second type of church we visited met in various types of buildings and was very postmodern. We were delighted because many of them seemed to be younger in age (18-35). As we warned them of the coming spiritual storms, they laughed at us.
God said, "These are the products of the works-based gospel movement of the '80s and '90s. These are they who have rebelled in the name of grace, but not in the name of My Son." As the Spirit spoke this to us, there began to be mass commotion among them. He said,
"These types of churches are blinding the generations to the truth in the name of grace. They call themselves Joel's army because they believe they will usher in the last day's grace movement in the earth, but know that they are like the locust, seeking to devour and ravage the vineyards of young generations. They distort the truth and preach rebellion and tolerance in the name of grace. They shall question if hell exists. They will believe that many paths lead to Me."
After visiting these two types of churches, the horse-riders were in great distress. I cried out to the Spirit and said, "Take me to Your church." I immediately rode up on a church building that had "Surrendered Church" on its doors.
The Surrendered Church
We quickly walked in and sat down. I immediately noticed that in the back of this church was a gaping hole. It was as if a blast had gone off and almost entirely knocked out the back walls of the surrendered church. As we visited surrendered churches all over America, we found the same thing. I sat in the back and asked the Father what had happened. He said, "My church was at first deceived by the false gospel of accommodation. They allowed hatred, fear, depression and violence to overtake them. The hyper-grace church you just saw stormed out of the back of My church and left because of the preaching of holiness and the fear of the Lord, but now My church has been awakened, and it shall be repaired."
I got up out of my seat and watched as many people were working on repairing the gaping hole in the back of the church. As I watched, I noticed something interesting: The workers were not just any workers. They were true apostles and prophets restoring the foundation of the church, and many of them were teaching other young people how to properly lay the foundation. God said, "I am raising up a remnant in the American church that will be sound in doctrine, they will embrace the gospel of self-denial, and they will not walk in fear, anger, violence and depression."
Many intercessors were in great travail repenting over the sins of the church, but having a great sense of hope as they cried out and thanked the Father for awakening the church from deception.
Then I woke up.
