One of the mandates at Faith And Finances is to understand the times and seasons we are living in and how it all ties into financial prosperity? Well, one man said, “If you want to make money, find out where the world is going and go there first”. It may be an oversimplification but it is true. The World is running after solutions during the crisis and what if the Church has the solution. This is why God gives us spiritual gifts to minister and serve one another. One such gift is the gift of discernment. Discernment is simply having an understanding of an unseen reality about an obvious visible reality. For example, you may take a certain route to work every day but one day your Spirit is not at peace and you feel like taking a different route. What is it? It is discernment. God may be leading you out of imminent danger on your regular route to work on that day. Many times God uses dreams to speak to us and give us understanding and discernment about things happening in the present, future or even about our past. I believe the Lord has granted me this gift of discernment and He often speaks to me in dreams concerning my personal life decisions, relationships, and even world events.
I had one of such dream few months back about a would be major world event. I prayed for the meaning of this dream several times and the Lord insisted that I would be given an understanding when it is the right time and not anytime before. And friends now is the right time now as the meaning of the dream was revealed according to the Lord’s promise. I received the interpretation of the dream last week.
A Prophetic Dream about the aftermath of COVID-19
First, let me share the dream as I recall it and then I will share the interpretation. This dream was given to me in May of 2019. In my dream, I saw a meeting of global political leaders. This event took place at a huge building in a prominent city. Outside the building, I saw a large number of people protesting. The atmosphere was tense. It seemed like the meeting was some kind of response to a global crisis that affected several countries. Presidents, Kings and Prime Ministers were gathering to come up with some kind of solution to a global problem. At least that was the agenda of the meeting. In the dream, I was walking out of this building while I ran into the US President – Donald J Trump, who was walking into the building to enter the meeting where other leaders were present. As I passed him, I called out to him asking for a minute of his time. He stopped and I immediately said, “Mr. President, you need to be aware of China”. And he responded saying, “Thank you, for pointing this out, our people were not expecting this but thank you for letting me know, we will make arrangements and be prepared.” And He then took out three gift cards from his pocket and wrote down the amount $55 on each of the gift cards signed his name on each of them and handed them over to me. After this, he walked down to the meeting and I continued walking out of the building. As I stepped out and exited the building I saw a diplomatic vehicle stop by and the Chinese leader stepped out of the car and walked into the building. Also as I walked out I noticed the building number as 1119. That was the end of my dream.
Interpretation of the dream
I prayed for many weeks seeking an interpretation for this dream and I did not seem to have an answer for this. Later in June 2019, President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping met during the G20 summit. I thought this may be the meaning of the dream. I mean it was a G20 summit. Leaders of major world economies meet during these summits including the US and Chinese leaders. I prayed and asked the Lord if the dream was related to the G20 summit. And the Lord said it was not the right time yet to know the meaning of the dream. And He said, “Something is going to come out of China, and when it does then your understanding of this dream will be unlocked.”
We are all aware of the COVID-19 virus and how it has disrupted the world and our way of life as we know it. I was listening to the President’s White House Coronavirus taskforce giving the daily update of the situation on March 29th, 2020. While they were talking about the $2 Trillion (USD) Stimulus Package being released into the economy. The Lord reminded of the dream and said this is it. So here’s what the dream means. The dream has to do with the aftermath of the COVID-19. Economies of several countries will be disrupted and millions of people around the world will be struggling after losing their jobs and businesses. Which we already see but it is only the beginning. The death toll of COVID-19 is only the outward reality. This crisis will be used to manipulate people and create financial chaos. In response to this crisis, there will be meetings between international leaders to come up with a solution.
Next, about me running into the US president who was walking into these meetings. The Lord showed me that my role in this dream was the role of the Church. The Church will be given an audience with the US president. The news media doesn’t show this all the time but President Trump has a good number of Church leaders advising him. The Church needs to pray that the President receives sound council in these times. There will be several trade deals made between the US and China. During these times the Church will have favor with leaders. In the dream, I saw 3 gift cards given to me from the President each amounted to $55. This means that God will cause the Church to have favor with the leaders of the nations and a wealth transfer is about to happen into the Church. A sign about the building number 1119 is actually the date 11-19 being November-2019. This is the time frame the very first case of COVID-19 emerged out of China.
What should the Church do?
So what do we do with all this information? First and foremost, I ask that every one who read this pray and seek the Lord for a witness in their heart about the message of this dream. The Lord gives us this information so we can escape the terrors of this world and also shows us how to profit while the world is struggling. The main role of the Church during these times is to pray for their government leaders to make the right decisions so we can live peaceful lives and also pray about how to be part of the massive wealth transfer. Remember that the economies of this world are driven by people’s confidence rather than in real value. During times like these when pandemics hit, people lose confidence and act in fear, then spend money on hoarding supplies due to fear of survival. But the Lord has promised us to take care of us during the famine. So our confidence and trust in the Lord makes our dollar more valuable than an unbeliever’s dollar. Every Christian in these times has to pray and ask the Lord to show them where to put their money, what to do with it and how to trade it. There will be a special favor in the area of finances upon the Church when we follow the Holy Spirit in these matters.
For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘And in this place, I will give peace,’ says the Lord of hosts.”Haggai 2:6-9 NKJV Bible
