In the month of September 2017 I had this vision whilst praying.
I saw myself in a valley. All around me was lush green grass and some vegetation, but not much. Large mountains surrounded the valley. Between two of the mountains, water rushed down in a waterfall, and the water flowed forth into a river which separated the valley into two parts.
I felt very thirsty, so I went to the river, bent down and drank. As I drank from the river, the story of Gideon’s army drinking at the river crossed my mind (Judges 7: 5-7). I made sure to drink in the way that had pleased the Lord. The water refreshed and strengthened me.
After I had drank I stood up. A great eagle, flying from the north appeared over the mountains. As he flew closer, I was able to perceive his considerable stature. He was maybe as tall as a tree, and his wing-span was meters wide. The great eagle swooped down and grabbed me with his talons. It happened so fast I did not even have the time to process it. The next thing I knew I was in the air, high above the valley. We traveled towards the south and I observed the landscape underneath. There was not much to see, mostly flat green landscape, a few trees and bushes scattered across the plain and the mountains which were getting smaller and smaller as we flew further south.
I do not know how long we flew, but we soon came to a huge nest in a tree. I was released and landed quiet safely in the nest. I noticed other people in the nest who seemed to already be acquainted with one another. They sat together and were talking with each other. Including me, we numbered 12 people in total. It suddenly crossed my mind how hungry I was. As if the eagle could read my mind, he spread his wings and lifted off. Since the landing he had been sitting on the branch overhead, observing us with his piercing eyes. He emanated profound authority and intelligence. Not once did he interact with the group.
It was not long before he was back again. I wondered what he had brought back to feed us, a dead mouse maybe. To my amazement it was something that I could never have imagined. From his talons, he dropped down scrolls onto the nest. The scrolls had actual writing on them. I saw how the others came forward to take a scroll, one per person, to ingest it. I followed suit by taking one for myself and biting into it. It tasted sweet like honey but it filled me up like bread. I ate of the scroll until nothing was left.
After we had eaten, we were flown down the tree onto the grass below by the eagle with his talons. Once we were on the ground we all received a word of knowledge that we were to get out into the world and share the words that we had just received. We would be sent out into different parts of the world to prophesy and to prepare God’s people for the return of the king. This word of knowledge was received as a message of understanding that entered into our minds; that is the best way that I can explain it. We all received the same message at exactly the same time, almost like a command. We set forth in different directions. As I said farewell to the others, I somehow knew that if I ever came across any of them again in the world, I would somehow know them, that they were in the nest with me, even if I could not remember them.
I do not believe that that was the only group of prophets that was sent out. God has an amazingly incredible plan for the end of ages, and we all have a part to play in it. I do believe though that that there are prophets who are being sent out in teams, all with a specific mandate. God is igniting individuals, married couples, families, congregations and organisations to move out and spread the gospel, to prophesy.
We must not forget that the pouring out of the Spirit will be accompanied by supernatural wonders in the heavens above and on the earth below.
Acts 2: 15-21
16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:
21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
According to Luke 4:18-19, all believers can receive the anointing to preach the gospel to the poor, to heal, so set the captives free and to proclaim the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Do your part according to the measure of your faith. Pray that the Lord will release you into your anointing and calling, whether it be financing ministry projects, be it teaching Sunday School, be it intercession for breakthrough in government, find your place in God’s kingdom and work together with your brothers and sisters. Time is short, we cannot delay, there is no room for unbelief, the king is coming!
