“And He said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven,’“ Luke 10:18-20, NKJV.
I am sharing a dream that I had 3 years ago while attending the Summer Camp Meeting in Smith’s Station, AL. At the time, I did not understand the relevance of the dream, but I knew it was important, so I transcribed it. Here is the dream.
I woke up early before the alarm from this very vivid dream:
I was with a group of people, but I don’t remember who they were. We were alerted that there were snakes hiding around where we were staying. I am not sure if everything was inside or it was inside and outside of the place.
I was not afraid and went searching out the snakes on my own with a great zeal. I had a strange looking weapon. It was a knife/ sword of some sort, but it had a handle of what seemed to be a bone like material.
At first there were only a few snakes. I struck them in the head. When I struck a snake in the head I could feel the bones cracking under the blade (like when you are cutting up a whole chicken and cut through the breast bone). The number of snakes increased; the more I killed the more came out. (They actually seemed to be drawn to me instead of fleeing.)
As I was waking, I remember saying, “This would go quicker, if I sharpened my blade.” That is when I looked at my weapon and realized it was not an ordinary weapon. It looked very old. I sharpened the blade and went back to killing the snakes. At first it took a lot less energy to cut through them. After I sharpened my blade, I remarked how much better and easier it was to kill them.
At no time was I fearful of the snakes. I knew it was my job and the job of those with me to kill these things. They were not small. Their coloring was light to dark green and they were vicious.
I do believe that my ancient weapon is the Word of God. We sharpen our weapon by filling ourselves with the Word, studying the Word, and Praising the Word made Flesh — Jesus our Lord and King.
I now realize that the dream points to the season we are currently in now. The intercessors and prayer warriors are not to be fearful, but to take up their weapons and give no quarter to the vicious snakes.
This generation of believers was born for this. We have Victory Himself living in us. The battle has been engaged and the warriors of Christ are to remain steadfast and confident in Him.
We come in the Name of our Lord and King Jesus to ask that you would awaken Your pray-ers and give us eyes to see, ears to hear, and hearts to know You and Your ways. Fill us with a great zeal to carry out our assignments with joy and enthusiasm that the world may see Your glory and Your power manifested in Your name. Come and do what only You can do, as we go in obedience and humility to war on behalf of Your Harvest. Thank You for the opportunity to be a part of Your great and glorious work. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
