Recently, the Lord gave me a vision. He revealed to me that turbulent times are ahead. This is a prophetic warning not so much about the turbulent times but rather a warning not to act with yesterday's logic.
The Vision of Turbulent Times
In my vision, I saw a very still, large lake. There was a dam at the end of the lake. On the lake, there were hundreds of Zodiac rafts. Zodiac rafts are used for whitewater rafting. They were full of people who appeared to be prepared for whitewater rafting, wearing helmets, life jackets and holding paddles. They were ready to go.
As they sat in the very still water in front of the giant dam, they became bored. Nothing was happening. It's as if those in the rafts lost focus in the midst of stillness. They lost their vision and started playing around, splashing each other and not paying attention to what was going on around them.
Some boats were aligned right near the center of the dam. These boats were positioned differently compared to the others. The bows of these boats were pointing directly at the center of the dam. Those in these properly aligned boats were very prepared. The weight in the boat was appropriately distributed, and the people inside were not distracted but very focused.
Then, in the vision, the dam broke. The people in the boats that were aligned at the center were ready. They immediately did something: They took their paddles and sunk them into the water and said, "Let's go!" They knew that this was going to be a class 6 rapid, one for experts—a turbulent time was coming.
They shot off the dam and down a waterfall. Then there was a riverbed. The Lord showed me that there would be uprooting and cleansing out for His glory. The riverbed was exposed.
The Lord is going to uproot and clean out things that have been buried for years, exposing what is at the bottom of the riverbed.
The people in the boats who weren't positioned when the dam broke heard the breaking and the water rushing. This created fear and anxiety in them. All of a sudden, in this vision, I saw these people jumping out of the boat.
Two things happened:
— 1. Those who jumped out because of fear drowned.
— 2. The boats that still had people in them, but the weight was not appropriately dispersed, capsized.
The Lord said, "This is a warning vision. I'm getting ready to break this dam wide open."
What Is the Lord Doing?
The Lord will bring truth and light to the United States of America, Israel and other nations. He is saying, "My glory, My dams of where I led you beside the still water—I'm taking you into the valley of the shadow of death. I'm breaking these dams wide open to give you the answer. I'm cleaning out what's really at the foundations so that redemption can happen."
You do not need to be fearful in turbulent times. Instead, know how to prepare today for what is to come. God is rising up a remnant to ride in the boats He is preparing.
— Stay focused on God.
— Repent of any sin issues, and give them to God.
— Reset your time and resources so that they align with the Lord's.
— Receive the revival that is coming to the righteous remnant.
God is doing a new thing, and His might and power are exposing the things that need to be exposed. He has a plan and purpose for you. Stay in the boat, and ride the waves of His glory!
