Strategy and Discernment Dreams



Many times when God is giving a warning dream, He will reveal a certain spirit and strategy behind a person that is plotting against you or a church, city, state, country or organization.

Why does He reveal it?  Because, He wants you to be able to discern it when you come in contact with it in the real situation!  You sometimes will get a sense of it in the dream and when you come in contact with it you will sense the same feeling.

Sometimes you will see something that will trigger what God showed you in that dream and suddenly you will be right back there in the dream, and God will say. “That is it!  See, this is what I showed you in your dream, now it is time to pray or even do what I showed you in the dream!”


Secondly, if you dream of a Christian who has a spirit, God always wants to bring deliverance to them to be able to finish their course.  SO PRAY FOR DELIVERANCE!

So many times He wants you to begin praying for His will to be done in their life!  When God uncovers something, it is not for us to go off talking about that person, but He is giving it to you mainly to keep you and others from falling into a trap and to pray for deliverance to all involved!

Many of you know of situations where God has spoken in a dream and given you discernment.  I know He has me many, many times.


A friend and I were talking about this last night and I believe that God is giving us strategies against the enemy right now and He is uncovering the plots and plans of the enemy!

We will need all of the discernment we can get in the days ahead!  The thing is, God wants us to learn to trust the Holy Spirit’s leading and know that it is Him speaking and you will never know until you step out by faith and just obey that prompting.  This is a TRAINING GROUND for us to walk and live by faith and our faith must lie in the God who dwells within us ~ He will show us things to come, He will discern the spirits, and He will say to us ,”This is the way, walk in it!


“During the night, with the Midianites camped in the valley just below, the LORD said to Gideon, “Get up! Take your troops and attack the Midianites, for I will cause you to defeat them!  But if you are afraid, first go down to the camp alone — take along your servant Purah if you like — and listen to what they are saying down there!  You will be greatly encouraged and be eager to attack!”
So he took Purah and crept down through the darkness to the outposts of the enemy camp.  The vast armies of Midian, Amalek, and the other nations of the Mideast were crowded across the valley like locusts — yes, like the sand upon the seashore — and there were too many camels even to count!  Gideon crept up to one of the tents just as a man inside had wakened from a nightmare and was telling his tent-mate about it.
“I had this strange dream,” he was saying, “and there was this huge loaf of barley bread that came tumbling down into our camp. It hit our tent and knocked it flat!”
The other soldier replied, “Your dream can mean only one thing!  Gideon, the son of Joash, the Israeli, is going to come and massacre all the allied forces of Midian!”
When Gideon heard the dream and the interpretation, all he could do was just stand there worshiping God!  Then he returned to his men and shouted, “Get up!  For the LORD is going to use you to conquer all the vast armies of Midian!””    
Judges 7:9-15 (TLB).


I believe that the LORD is speaking right now to many and saying,

“You have been praying for solutions and strategies to defeat the enemies in your life but you have not heard Me when I AM speaking.

My sheep know My voice and another they will not follow.  Listen to the dreams that I give you because I have much to show you about who your enemy is in them!

Arise, begin to act on that which I AM showing you and as you pray, I will give you confirmation!  All that I call you to do through My Spirit, must be acted upon by faith and I AM asking My people to TRUST ME, FOR I HAVE GIVEN YOU MY HOLY SPIRIT TO TEACH YOU AND TRAIN YOU AND EQUIP YOU FOR THE TASK!

But, you must believe the Holy Spirit who dwells within you!  Yes, it is He that will show you things to come so that you will not go a way that is not mine!

Time to arise in that power that I have given you and trust Me enough to do all that I have called you to so that you will be able to establish My Kingdom in the earth!”
