Revelation 13:10 – “If anyone is destined for captivity, into captivity he goes. If anyone is to be killed with a sword, with a sword he will be killed. This demands the perseverance and faith of the saints.” ~ ~ ~
2 Timothy 3:12 – “Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.”
I felt prompted to post this three-part dream that I had back on 6-12-98.
The United States is heading into a suppressive dictatorship, where eventually true Christianity will have to go “underground”, because it will be illegal to be a true believer and follower of Jesus Christ. What’s ahead for the United States, is beyond what most can imagine. A glimpse of the oppression and persecution can be seen by reading about the Jews in Hitler’s Germany.
ALL that is unfolding in the United States has been dictated by the Heavenly Father, for this is a part of the judgement upon the United States. The once great nation has become an abomination and a stench in the nostrils of the Creator. It has become a “Godless nation”.
I pray that all who call on the name of Jesus, to “endure until the end.” May the LORD have mercy, in the midst of the judgement.
PART 1 – I was in my parent’s house. Suddenly, one room completely disappeared down this huge, circular opening in the ground. This opening was something that God had done; it was frightening to look down into it. On the edge of the opening, my cats were sleeping peacefully. After all this happened, we had to pack our things and leave that house.
PART 2 – I was in a large ship that could and did travel throughout the streets of the city.
PART 3 – I was suddenly in what appeared to be some type of prison yard that had high chain link fences and barbed wire around the top of it. I was there with my brother, James, and did not know how I got there or why I was there. People all around me were speaking Portuguese.
I went into an office area where a woman was sitting. I told her I didn’t know why I was there or how I got there and asked her if she knew. She said it was because I was reading the bible and my country [the United States] did not allow it. She also told me that many people were being martyred because they read the Bible, but I had been shipped there to Brazil. I asked her if I could have a Bible and she said “yes, we allow that in this country.”
I went over to her shelf and saw several types of Bibles that were written in both Portuguese and English. I then picked up a red, hard-bound Bible that was a New American Standard Edition and decided to use that one. After I picked out my Bible, I told the woman joyfully, “Oh good, the tribulation has started and this means I will get to see Jesus return.” I also told her I did not have any plans of escaping because all that would mean is that I would be jumping over a fence to be amongst people I couldn’t understand and would then be in a place where I would not have any food or shelter. Basically I was content to even be in prison, as long as I had a Bible.
PART 1 – My parent’s house in this dream is symbolic of the church. The LORD is about to judge “the church” in a sudden and frightening way. Those who are resting in Christ, will remain in peace, but will have to leave the “traditional” church organizations that have become Biblically unsound.
Note: please look at the related warning dream:
PART 2 – The day is coming when unexplained, untraditional and supernatural events will be seen in the streets. There will be ministries raised up by the LORD to go throughout the land that will be clearly supernatural and anointed by God. It will be “in the streets” that the Gospel of Jesus Christ will be fully shared, with miracles, signs and wonders. Souls will be brought into the Kingdom of Heaven.
PART 3 – Persecution of Christians will increase in the United States, to the point where it will be illegal to read or own a Bible. Many will be captured, sent to prison and martyred, merely for being a true believer and follower of Jesus.
Note: at the time of this dream, I was not aware that Portuguese was spoken in Brazil. It amazes me how the Holy Spirit will give these details to be a confirmation to me. In addition, I do not know why this dream had me being arrested and sent to Brazil; that part still remains a mystery to me. There may be a reader of this blog that is given insight into this; if so, please share.

John 15:19-21 – “If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me.”
2 Corinthians 4:1-12 – “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves; we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. For we who live are constantly being delivered over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So death works in us, but life in you.”
