We were inside the house. I went outside briefly and looked towards the west. At that moment I saw a plume of smoke rising up into a cloud. I thought within myself,
“That looks like a nuclear explosion I am looking at” But I thought “Surely not!”
But I looked at it again and saw that it definitely was a nuclear explosion. The column of smoke was forming that solid tree trunk look and the cloud above was forming into a perfect round mushroom head with a threatening ring around it’s base.
I realised in that instant that very soon the effects of that blast would hit us with blinding speed.
My mind went to our 21 year old son — He was not in the house , was he outside here somewhere? I called his name. Nothing. I called again. Nothing. I quickly went back into the house, glancing at that expanding, threatening and growing mushroom cloud…I called my son’s name over and over in rapid succession..stopped to listen…no answer.
I awoke from the dream.
This dream is speaking of the storm and explosion that is planned by the enemy on one hand but also the cry going up from Christian parents for their wayward loved ones to come in under God’s protective wings.
So therefore we pray Father that you would surround your children as the mountains surround Jerusalem(ps125)…that You would place a wall of fire around us…and all those who belong to us…Isaiah 4:3-6
Job’s children partied hard on their birthdays…
Job 1:4 And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them.
Job the believing parent sanctified his wayward children through offering a sacrifice to God. Paul said our children are holy(devoted to God) because of our faith -even our unbelieving children.
5 And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.1Cor7:14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the(believing) wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the(believing) husband; otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are(sanctified-set apart unto God) holy.
Satan said to God about Job the father of 10 children who were all partying and drinking too much wine
Job 1:10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.
Yes in this you speak truly!! God has indeed done all that you say and MORE!
Therefore we speak in agreement with the Word of God –even a word of God that came out of Satan’s mouth!!
- God has made a hedge about me!! I am hedged about by God Himself. Safe inside of Jesus inside of Father. If Satan and his co workers see me they see Jesus!!
- God has hedged my house about. He has placed a protective thorny hedge around my dwelling…my body and my soul and my the physical building or tent or whatever I am in.
- God has placed a hedge of protection about ALL THAT I HAVE on EVERY SIDE. There is no way for the enemy to enter into the place I dwell–for I dwell inside of Jesus inside of God. All that I possess –all that is given to me –including my children is PROTECTED BY GOD.
- God has blessed the work of my hands —His favour and blessing and prosperity are mine this day and every day.
We know that God gave Satan permission to touch Job and all that he had. We find in the story of Job that Job went deeper into God’s righteousness as a result of the fiery trial he endured. He once boasted in his own righteousness– but later abhorred himself and clung to God ‘s righteousness ALONE.
All our own righteousness is as filthy rags before You Father. We cast that off today and put on the Lord Jesus Christ as our ONLY LIFE and OUR ONLY RIGHTEOUSNESS.
We commit our children, our spirit, soul and body to You Father – all is yours. We thank you for the fiery hedge of protection around about all that we have this day and throughout our time on the earth.
We give you all our fears for their salvation.
We acknowledge that you are Sovereign, and you saved us–so You can save them too.
Isa 4:3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem:
4 When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.
5 And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence.
6 And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the day time from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.
On the 30th December I prophesied a word in which the Lord said the phrase “a woman shall encompass a man” – which now I have found it in scripture see I need to write a separate post .
