Go forth and recover all in 2016!
About 6 am this morning 12/15/2015, I had a very challenging dream that I am convinced was God’s answer to me concerning 2016.
Just to back track a little. I was compel to engage in a fast that lasted for almost two weeks, and ended just last Friday. During this fast there were many things I was seeking God for and many unanswered questions in terms of certain losses in my life. Well as a result of my dream this morning I am convinced that not only did God answer me but I am convinced the message given to me in my dream is for all that would take head and begin to put in action the instructions of the dream.
In my dream this morning, I was standing in a church more specifically standing near a pulpit observing a gentleman accompanied by two ladies who were standing at his immediate left. This gentleman was preaching but for some reason he seem as if there was something invisible preventing him from preaching. In fact it seem as if the words he was speaking did not make sense. As I began to look out at the congregation there were only three old ladies who seem to be no less than 65 years old sitting at the very last bench at the back of the church. However, they were looking at each other in complete amazement as to what was this man saying or talking about. In fact it didn’t even seem to be the English language he was speaking. The more I observe this gentleman the more he looked frustrated along with the three ladies present in the church.
All of a sudden, I was given a signal, but I don’t recall by whom, that I would be up next to preach. Well, within seconds the gentleman that was preaching and the ladies that accompanied him all vanished with no trace of them even being there. Immediately, a young man walked up to me (someone that is a known enemy to me in reality) and passed me the Mic. This person held his head in a downward position while walking towards me and even after passing me the Mic.
Instantly, when I received the Mic the church mushroomed into what appeared to be a stadium filled to capacity with hundreds of thousands of people. The people were anxious and literally cheering me on to release a word from the Lord to them. I began to pace the floor of the pulpit wondering what exactly I would say to the people. For some strange reason I could not come up with anything. The crowd then began to become agitated because they were desperate for a word form the Lord.
As I retreated to the pulpit with one hand holding on to the pulpit, I then took about two to three steps backwards from the pulpit and it was as if everything around me disappeared and there was complete silence. At that moment I said to myself, “Lord I need a word form you for the people”. It was at that moment when I made this request in actuality talking to myself, I heard an internal voice that spoke to me as clear as day, the voice said to me, “Tell my people go forth and recover all”. Immediately, I was returned back to the pulpit with the resuming of the noise of the crowd, again, impatiently waiting on a word from the lord. I then walked down from the pulpit being totally overwhelmed by the word of the Lord for the people.
As I got to the floor just below the platform I grip the Mic with great pressure and shouted with a loud voice while looking up in the stands observing literally hundreds of thousands of people saying to the crowd, “The word of the Lord for his people is, GO FORTH AND RECOVER ALL”. It was at this point that the crown began to jump up and down and moved about in great excitement and encouragement. I have never seen anything like that in all my life. The crowd began to shout and literally roar all because of the word of the Lord. In all honesty, I became so excited in the dream and felt as if the word of the Lord was an all go sign for all that would believe his words.
The following is my interpretation of my dream. Firstly, the gentleman that I saw was symbolic of preachers whose time has expired but still trying to hold on to a place that has rejected them. The old ladies in the church who were the only folks in the congregation symbolized the older folks that attend church only as a tradition but has become completely despondent by the same old tired non anointed message. The empty church symbolizes the lack of interest for church by all walks of life simply because of the “out of touch” leaders who have become irrelevant and spiritually deaf to the voice of the Holy Spirit and refuse to step aside for God’s new wave of leadership that will actually obey his voice. The two ladies that stood at the left of the preacher are symbols of evil spirits namely Jezebel spirits that have controlled such leaders and as a result influenced these same leaders to become obsessed with controlling their membership to the point folks just had enough and left. Thus leaving these controlling leaders all by themselves and only with a handful of folks who are more committed to the tradition of attending church as opposed to truly hearing the word of the Lord.
I mentioned that in my dream that I was given a signal that I would be up next to preach but I did not recall who gave me the signal. In any event, the person that passed me the mic is an enemy to me in reality. This section of the dream brought the following scripture to mind, “When a man’s ways please the LORD, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. In other words, this transition that God is about to do with the replacing of leadership even your haters and oppressors will have no choice but to fall in line to the will of God as his new set of leaders are about to mount the stage of life.
I also mentioned that when the mic was passed to me the church mushroomed from 3 old ladies in the congregation to what appeared to be a stadium filled with literally hundreds of thousands of people in great expectation of a word from the lord. Scripture says the following in regards to this portion of the dream, “For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God” Romans 8:19. In other words there is a particular anointing that comes along with this new breed of leaders, whose anointing will place a demand on folks that once had no interest for church and the things of God to return to their first love. Only this time it will not be about worshiping a leader or everything surrounding the leader of a congregation. Instead, the expectation will be on the word of God that will be released from the man or woman of God!
Amazingly in this dream I could not come up with anything to say or preach to this massive crowd. If you can recall I mentioned that at one point I stood at the pulpit took a few steps back and ended up in this isolated space where everything vanished around me and it was also at this point I said to myself, “Lord I need a word for your people”. I am convinced that this new breed of leadership must be entirely dependent on God and abolish their own agendas. As you would have observed, it was only when I gave up on my own way of trying to come up with something and internally asked God for a word for the people that a word from the Lord was given to me!
It was the words that were released to me that became the most important part of the dream to me. As a reminder it was when I released these words to this word hungry crowd that they literally became overwhelmed with excitement and joy. Nevertheless, it was the interpretation of what those words meant that now speaks to the entirety of the coming year 2016.
I believe based on the words given by the Lord, that we as people of God have been given the green light to go forward and recover everything that has either been taken from us, deprived from us or what we’ve lost in the past. In any event the word recover implies getting back or regaining something that was either taken away or lost. It also implies that whatever it is that God is asking us to recover, originally he had set aside just for us. In addition to this, I am also convinced that if God is asking us to go forth and recover all, it would suggest that he has removed all barriers, partitions, impediments and whatever else that prevented us from recovering whatever it was that we failed at recovering before.
I believe that this command from God and our obedience to this command will require boldness along with a fearless spirit that will cause us to strategically invade the enemy’s camp. However, this fearlessness and boldness will be automatic for us if our confidence is cemented in the word of God. In other words, the word of the lord, “Go forth and recover all” should be our confidence that everything is in place for us to recover all.
The bottom line is this! Whatever you have lost, whatever was stolen from you, whatever you’ve failed at, go back and attempt it again because this time is your set time to recover all! If you had issues in conceiving go and try again, Have you lost your home or property to foreclosure get ready for total recovery. Were you deprived of your promotion get ready to recover all, Families, marriages, businesses, beginning now and the entirety of 2016 will be a year of recovery for those that believe the word of the Lord and act upon his word. You will not recover pieces instead as the lord has commanded YOU SHALL RECOVER ALL!
In closing, I would like to make unequivocally clear in regards to my dream and that is, the new breed of leaders were always here. Instead they were being oppressed by the current insecure controlling leaders who refuse to step down and pass on the baton to the next generation. As a result they have clogged the pipes of progress and enslaved the people with traditions that has made the word of God of non-affect. However, the time is quickly approaching where God is about to sit them down permanently only to usher in his new team that will lead us up to the coming of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ!
Please read 1 Samuel 30 for a greater understanding of the results of going forth and recovering all. Also, I would strongly advise you to make a list with a title that says “Go forth and recover all”. List everything that you have lost and that was stolen from you. Now prepare to make a check to each lost as a recovery as you walk in faith according to the command of the lord!
“GO FORTH AND RECOVER ALL” in 2016!
