PROPHETIC DREAM: The Church needs to Repent!
On March 25, 2020 I received a quick flash dream from The LORD that had prophetic significance.
In this dream, I was at my house in my nightgown and robe in what seemed to be the middle of the day. A knock came on the door, and when I answered, there was a stranger there who told me that my old friend, Karen and her husband were outside wanting to see me.
I was thrilled and ecstatic to hear this, as I had not seen them for many, many years! I quickly went to get dressed, afraid that they were not going to wait and leave.
When I finally got outside, I saw my friend, Karen, outside on a vacant plot next to my house. She seemed to be rummaging….. picking up and assorting the trash and debris that was all around.
She didn’t seem to happy to see me, because she was so busy sorting through the trash. However, she did wave at me.
End of dream….
1) Since I had on my bedclothes and robe in the middle of the day, I represented the SLEEPING, LUKEWARM CHURCH.
2) ‘Karen‘ means ‘PURE‘ in English and ‘RAY OF SUNSHINE‘ in Hebrew.
She represents the TRUE CHURCH OF GOD that should be walking in purity and light.
3) ‘Karen’ picking up the trash, means that the CHURCH is filthy and dirty right now before The LORD.
It is sorting through all its sins and iniquities, but not getting rid of them.
Repentance means not only to confess, but to turn away and discard the sin.
4) Since ‘Karen‘ and I were good friends, this shows the mingling of the true Church mingling with the worldly, sleeping, lukewarm church.
AFTER having this dream, The LORD reminded me of my main purpose for this ministry HE has given me, and that is to proclaim and bring forth again:
Repentance is needed for The Church!
Without Repentance, come Judgment!
Many people are confused about the JUDGMENT OF GOD and how that works. They believe that the JUDGMENTS come because of the wickedness of the unsaved.
However, what they fail to recognize is that judgment begins with the HOUSEHOLD OF GOD, and NOT with the unsaved, (1 Peter 4:17).
When the righteous become:
- Start turning back to their worldly ways
- Stop seeking GOD
- Serve themselves instead of GOD (a form of idolatry)
- and ESPECIALLY, stop obeying the WORD….
…. then the enemy has now been given an open door and has LEGAL RIGHTS to come in. Not only in the believer’s life, but also in the community and society in which they they live in.
The enemy then uses these LEGAL RIGHT to brings DARKNESS into your life, and into the land. WHEN this darkness is no longer being PUSHED BACK through prayer, fasting, proclaiming the WORD, and seeking GOD’s face, then The LORD allows this darkness to come upon the land and JUDGMENT FALLS.
It is only when the people of GOD humble themselves and commit themselves back to a RIGHTEOUS WALK with HIM, that HE will hear their cry and answer.
The filth of the CHURCH needs to be cleaned up, so it can once again RISE UP and be a beacon of hope and light. It starts with us, one by one, to make this change….. first within ourselves, then helping others in the BODY see this truth.
Once the LUKEWARM, UNREPENTANT CHURCH has been shaken of its sin, then The LORD can start using it to maintain justice and truth again. This can only be done with a truly sorrowful, repentant BODY OF CHRIST.
Our heart felt cry should be to be CRYING OUT FOR MERCY in our time of REPENTANCE.
“Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, until these calamities have passed by,” Psalms 57:1.
Beside personal repentance, we must also intercede for others and STAND IN THE GAP for our country’s sins as well and ask for forgiveness.
This is what Daniel 9 did in his prayer for personal and national repentance, Here is a portion of that prayer from Daniel 9:3-5:
“Then I set my face toward The LORD God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes. And I prayed to The LORD my God, and made confession, and said, “O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments, we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments.”
IN CLOSING, I urge all of us to intercede to The LORD GOD, not only on our own behalf and families, but for the BODY OF CHRIST and our country.
Spread the message to others that REPENTANCE is necessary for The LORD to come and HEAL OUR WOUNDS.
“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land,” 2 Chronicles 7:14.
Seven years ago I did a video on the 2 Chronicles 7:14 according to the Hebrew text meaning..
I explained how The LORD had told me that if the Church did not ‘do 2 Chronicles 7:14,’ that JUDGMENT WOULD COME.
Here is that video:
2 Chronicles 7:14
Please share this message of repentance with The Body of Christ during these last days.
PRAY that we will become that PURE and RIGHTEOUS BRIDE that The LORD seeks and that will be able to counted worthy to stand before our LORD and KING.
“Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man,” Luke 21:38.
A Prayer for The Church based on Revelation 2-3
Dear FATHER, LORD JESUS and HOLY SPIRIT,
Today I come to You out of love and obedience for You alone. As you love Your Church, I too, love Your Church….. Your People, who call themselves by YOUR NAME.
I pray for Your Church in accordance to the 7 Churches found in the Book of Revelation.
I pray that Your Church will persevere and have patience, as they labor for YOU. Help them not grow weary. (Revelation 2:3)
Help us to remember our first love, when we were first saved. Forgive us and help us to do the first works that You have sent us to do. (Revelation 2:4-5)
Help us to have ears to hear what the SPIRIT says to the Churches and to be overcomers. Let us be overcomers, counted worthy to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of GOD. (Revelation 2:7)
Do not let Your Church fear any of those things that we are about to suffer, as we are being tested. But let us be faithful, even unto death, and may we receive your crown of life. (Revelation 2:10)
Help us to hold fast to YOUR NAME and not to deny our faith in you. (Revelation 2:13)
Help us not to be deceived by the doctrines of Balaam, not to sacrifice anything to idols, but to keep ourselves pure, both physically and spiritually. (Revelation 2:14)
As we overcome, we ask that you will give us some HIDDEN MANNA to eat, as well as a white stone with our new name written on it. (Revelation 2:17)
We ask, dear JESUS, that our works, love, service, faith and patience are greater and greater each day than when we first started. (Revelation 2:19)
Forgive us our sins, dear LORD JESUS! Forgive us for tolerating Jezebel spirits that have seeped into the church, with her false prophecies and teachings. Help us to expose these false spirits and doctrines and uphold your truth and WORD only. (Revelation 2:21-22)
Help us to hold fast what you have given us and to do Your Works till you come for us. (Revelation 2:25-26)
LORD JESUS, we pray for the lukewarm Church that believes that they have YOUR NAME, but they are almost dead. Please help them to be WAKE UP and strengthened in the godly things. WAKE them up to their condition, as their works are not acceptable before You. (Revelation 3:1)
Dear LORD, helps us to remember all that you have done for us, and all that we have received from your hand. Help us to repent of all our sins. Help Your Church to be watchful for your coming, so that it will NOT come upon us as a thief in the night. (Revelation 3:2)
Help Your Church not to have defiled garments but to be worthy to walk with YOU in white. Do not block out our name from the Book of Life, but confess our name before the FATHER and before HIS angels. (Revelation 3:4-5)
Set before us an open door that no one can shut. Though we have little strength, help us to keep YOUR WORD and never to to deny YOUR NAME. (Revelation 3:8)

Help us to hold fast so that no one may take our crown. (Revelation 3:11)
Dear JESUS, keep Your Church from the Laocidians ways of depending on themselves and not you. Help this lukewarm church to buy from YOU gold refined in the fire so that they may be rich and have white garments. Anoint their eyes with eye salve that they may see. (Revelation 3:18)
Help us to be zealous for You and to always repent! (Revelation 3:19)
LORD JESUS, we hear You knocking at the doors of our heart. We open the door to You and ask that You would come in, so we can dine together, forever. (Revelation 3:20)
Let Your Church overcome as you have overcome! (Revelation 3:21)
