Recently the Holy Spirit brought me back to a dream that I had a few years ago. As I read it in my journal, I realized that this is what He has been showing me for the past few weeks. The Lord is raising up prophetic voices as well as "seer" prophets and visionaries. I have been hearing many other prophetic ministers seeing and sharing the same prophetic word and revelation for 2016.
A few years ago I was in a powerful service and I had an incredible encounter with the Holy Spirit. I remember how I was still engulfed in the glory of God when I got home. That night I had two separate dreams which were two hours apart. These prophetic dreams are more relevant for today than they were when I received them. Below are the dreams.
Significant Dreams of the Young Eaglets and Lions
In the first dream I was in a huge ancient place. There were surrounding mountains that appeared to be made of ivory. A very gracious lady was giving me a tour of this magnificent place but I don't recall what her face looked like. All I could remember was that her countenance was pleasant and loving as an angel. As I walked with her we saw numerous eagles in cages made of wood and metal. Each eagle was in its own cage. Many of them were not full-grown eagles but they were various ages and sizes.
As this lady was showing me around, we noticed one young eaglet that broke out of its wooden crate, as it broke the wood by pushing it up with its beak and simply hopping out. Although it was an eagle, its appearance was different from a full-grown eagle because it was a very young eaglet. When the lady saw this she laughed in amusement and gently placed the eaglet back into the crate because it wasn't time for it to be released.
There were also some young lions. There was one young lion which I recognized was a female because it didn't have a mane. This young lion was on a long leash but I couldn't understand why it was so gentle rather than vicious. As I continued to walk with her I was looking up in amazement at the huge arched cathedral ceilings which were approximately fifty feet high and made of a beautiful engraved stone. I asked her who owned this place and she responded, "Two Jewish men." I then looked up and saw two gigantic ancient doors made of dark brown brass. Engraved in gold leaf in these doors were the words: "Tallit and Tekiah".
When I woke up I recorded this dream and went back to sleep. Two hours later I had another dream where I went back to that place and this time I heard anointed music playing in the atmosphere. I was talking to a Jewish man with a long robe. I saw the two ancient doors again and in front of the man was a podium with the inscription that said: Isaiah 45
Isaiah 45:1-3, "Thus says the Lord to His anointed, To Cyrus, whose right hand I have held - To subdue nations before him and loose the armor of kings, to open before him the Double Doors, so that the gates will not be shut: I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the Lord, who call you by your name am the God of Israel."
The next morning I looked up the two words "Tallit and Tekiah" and found that the tallit is a Jewish prayer shawl and the tekiah is the sound that a shofar (rams horn) makes. The sound of the tekiah is especially used in the celebration for Rosh Hashanah, Passover and Yom Kippur which represents victory and freedom and is still in practice today. Jews also still wear the tallit today during prayer (prayer shawl).
This is the prophetic word that I received:
The Lord says, "I am raising up many prophets, prophetic voices and visionaries from among you. There are many young eagles in training. Many of them are hidden away, some are in the fields, some are in the marketplace but each one is spending time in the secret place. They are in intercession and worshiping Me as they are preparing their hearts for what I have for them.
"These young eagles are being raised up to proclaim My prophetic voice and My Word to the nations. When they come before you, embrace them and do not refuse them because they are being sent forth as My representatives. Do not judge them by their outward appearance, education, inadequacies or lack of stamina. They are My chosen generation who will go forth with great power and anointing. They are warriors and have no fear of the enemies revenge or retaliation because they know who they are. They have been tested in the fire and have survived the lion's den.
"Don't look at their situations of where they are now because many are going to be amazed as they see them rebound right into the place that they were called to be. I will release to them the treasures of darkness and the hidden riches of secret places and you will be amazed what I am about to do with their lives," says the Lord.
