Dream Prophecy of a Coming War
1820s and 1830s, 1820s and 1830s, 1820s and 1830s, these apparent date numbers and words intruded upon my sleep one night in the late summer of 2015. 1820s and1830s repeatedly flashed visually before my conscious mind, breaking in upon a deep sleep. My conscious mind woke up within this dream though I was still physically asleep. I had the presence of mind in my sleep to ask, to pray if you will, “1820s and 1830s, what does it mean, what are you telling me?” The message, 1820s and 1830s repeated again and again I asked to be told the meaning of the message. I found myself briefly waiting in the midst of my sleep for an answer to this numeric message pressing in upon my mind. A clear audible voice said to me, “A great war is coming.” “Just as in the 1820s and 1830s those who would lead in the American civil war were being born, those who will lead in this coming war are being born now.” That was the entire message. I understood why God had presented this message to me in this way. It is because I read a lot of Civil War history and I check wiki biographies of leading officers noting their birthdate and calculating their age during various battles. The vast majority of officers bearing great responsibility were born in the 1820s or 1830s. North and South, they were people of remarkable character, special people raised up by God for the purposes of their generation. I believe God was revealing to me that a great war, a dreadful fulfillment of biblical prophecy will occur in 40 or more years. I discussed this dream with a dear old friend of mine, a deeply spiritual Christian man and he suggested that the dream indicates our current responsibility to spiritually prepare this generation now being born for this coming ordeal just as the American civilization, such as it was in the early 19th century spiritually prepared men from both sides of the American Civil war for the leadership, biblical manhood and courageous self-sacrifice required for that war to run its course.
It may be the easiest and surest way to claim to be a prophet, by predicting a coming war. That is not lost on me. Wars will happen as long as mankind continues on this earth. Nonetheless, as God is my witness, I tell you I had this encounter. I believe it was God, imposing a message upon me in the middle of the night, presenting me with this message. I do not possess the intellect, even subconsciously to fabricate this. I believe my friend’s interpretation is valid, that God is telling us to cultivate and prepare our children spiritually and in all manner of biblical maturity for a difficult future. I deliver this message via my blog in the hope that the intentions of God may be supported by this telling.
