I believe this dream points to the Church as a primary STOREHOUSE of both PROVISION and POWER in the days ahead. Regardless of the source of this pandemic, the Church has a huge opportunity and I believe heaven is watching for our response. Not only can we reach our communities through practical helps and compassionate service; we are the only agency on the earth that has the legitimate POWER to CHANGE THINGS.
We are being stripped of our comforts and conveniences. We are dealing with an invisible enemy that is operating without restraint. Everyone – from the President on down – is being faced with our human limitations and I believe we will eventually come to the end of our own help. Even though I believe this pandemic is going to end sooner than later, our greater threat has been the perception that has been created. It’s the perfect time to walk in a level of power and faith that attracts attention and causes the world to notice.
But alas, the enemy knows the POWER of FAITH and BELIEF. This unseen enemy is feeding on our fears, but more importantly, our UNBELIEF. The spiritual fog that has permeated our nation for the last number of years has caused many to laugh at God and mock His ways. The manipulation of facts and deceptive propaganda has been feeding people’s minds with unbelief as to the power of God and the authority of His Word. It has been slowly draining us of our courage as well as our power. As the Lord told my husband several weeks ago, “You can hear my voice, but where’s the power?!”
I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name…Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth. I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown (the Latin word for crown is “corona”). (Revelation 3:8-11 ESV)
I released a word last week concerning the “violent faith” that must rise up within believers to combat this pandemic. The zeal of the Lord can only operate when there is a RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION burning in our hearts against the works of the devil. I challenge believers to cut off any unbelief in our thinking and allow Holy Spirit to burn in our hearts a compassion for others and a zeal for righteousness. I pray the Body of Christ can demonstrate servant leadership while operating in a supernatural power that defies logic and unbelief.
In my dream, the storehouse was huge. Though it did contain some food and practical provisions, it was stacked to the ceiling with tools and power equipment. I believe the Church has been given MUCH through the years and has unused potential stored within. Though the government has its role and purpose in times of crisis, it’s WE, the Ekklesia, that possess the largest storehouse of faith, provision, and legitimate power that can turn the tide.
The world is looking for solutions. Let’s give them something to watch.

Amen. So true.
This morning I saw a drop in cases & deaths according to worldometers
Daily decrease in cases: 7,529
Daily decrease in deaths: 413
As soon as I read that, I saw a cloud the size of a man’s hand and thought about Elijah (1 Kings 18 & James 5)
Elijah, a man with like passions and nature just like us, prayed that it would not rain and it did not rain for three and a half years, then, he prayed that it would rain and heaven gave rain and the earth bore fruit.
But, before it rained, he said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If The LORD is God, follow Him; if Baal, follow him.” The people answered not a word. So Elijah challenged them to lay out two bulls on wood and they call on their gods and he’d call on his God and whoever answered by lighting the wood was the true God.
We know the story. The prophets of Baal made fools of themselves crying out to nothing and no avail. Whereas Elijah had stones laid and a trench built around the wood under his bull and the wood and trench were filled until saturated with water.
Then Elijah prayed, “Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that You are the Lord God, and that You have turned their hearts back to You again.”
The fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench (1 Kings 18:37-38).
After the prophets of Baal were slain, he said to the king, go eat and drink the famine is over for I hear the sound of an abundance of rain.
Then he prayed. Seven times he prayed. Seven times he looked toward the sky for any sign of rain. Nothing but blue skies…until the seventh time. The seventh time there was a cloud. A small cloud, the size of a man’s hand. That was all he needed. He told the king, hurry, get prepared or you’ll be caught in the rain.
The drop in numbers may be small, it may only be one day in many, but it’s all we need to see and believe and pray, “Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that You are the Lord God, and that You have turned their hearts back to You again.”
Prepare and preprayer, for I hear an abundance of rain; yes an end to this famine.
The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.
Amen. Father may your people take the tools you provide and change the world. Praise your name for hearing our prayers.
This is our time to rise. God has been preparing us for such a time as this. Now is our time to hand out Bibles and tracts as we go to stores and through drive-throughs. Now is the time to mail the plan of salvation to as many as possible. Now is the time for us to stay calm on social media and remain at peace so people can ask us the reason for our hope.
