Wake Me Up When September Ends
total word count: 604
There are a lot of people talking about what’s coming in September. My wife had an interesting dream this morning that I wanted to share with you to illustrate a couple of points:
This was the only dream she can remember having in the last 4 years where the setting was our current house.
(Current house – current time-frame)
In the dream, a man came to our home early in the morning to tell us something about a flood. He had pictures of flooded homes and he wanted to show them to us.
(Was this fellow a prophet who came to deliver bad news?)
I came outside to hear what he had to say and after hearing some of his message I told him to leave (twice). Then my wife came out to see what was going on. She was annoyed because she had not had her coffee yet and this guy was interrupting her morning.
He had tables and chairs set up in front of our house and there were a lot of people sitting down listening to him.
(The man is speaking to people we know)
My wife listened to him and he rambled on and on but never did get around to telling us the point of his message. He just kept rambling.
(He comes to deliver a message, but has no specific details he can share.)
At this point my wife went back in the house and the dream ended.
Things to consider:
I’ve read a number of recent prophetic words which use the word “flood” symbolically. They speak about something “coming in like a flood” but few of these prophetic words have any specific details to share. Prophets are reporting “something” is going to happen, and many of these involve the time frame of the middle of September, but they tend to be sparse on details. (If you happen to have any revelation that includes details about what we might expect, you can leave the information in a comment below.)
God does not ask us to react to prophecy. He asks us to judge it (or discern it by the Spirit if you prefer.)
If a prophetic word is judged not to be of God; not to accurately represent His heart; or not to represent the truth of a matter, we are free to disregard it.
If a prophetic word is deemed to be from God; if it’s deemed to represent the truth of a matter; or if we believe God is revealing the enemy’s plan, we have a couple of options:
1) We can stand in agreement with the word and pray for it to come to pass.
2) We can stand against it and pray for the opposite to come to pass.
The twelve spies returned from the land with a mixed report. Ten of them had a negative view of their chances for victory. Two spies liked their odds. The report the Israelites chose to believe became
their destiny. Sometimes we’re given options and we get exactly what we believe to be true. We have a choice about what we choose to believe about September. If we come into agreement with a bad report, we may very well help in making it come to pass. But if we expect God to do something positive and pray in agreement with it, we could see some pretty cool changes.
I’m not saying that there aren’t some changes coming in September. The only constant in life is change. The only exception is God. As for me, I’m expecting changes—for the better. I’m going to keep advancing the kingdom that is always expanding its rule. It is after all, a kingdom that cannot be shaken. And I’m going to keep dreaming with God.
Be sure to wake me up when September ends.
