American King James Version
"And it shall come to pass in the last days, said God, I will pour out of my Spirit on all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams." Acts 2:17
It was 10:11 a.m. on April 28th, when I documented a prophetic dream that was regarding the tornadoes to come and the reason. I had the vision on April 27th, the date of the beginning of this cycle of tornado occurences and told my wife after I woke up.
Now on to my vision. I was in a field and looked up to the sky and seen a large tornado from the southeast, a smaller one close to it, but slightly further to the west/east still located in the southeast. Another one was located to the north east of me that began to form in the clouds (representing the actual areas of where these tornadoes have touched down). I was faced north.
Afraid, I began to run north which was where my house was located in the dream. About twenty feet and a few gallops away from where I began running, I dropped both of the bags I had in my hands that contained my personal belongings. I do not know the things that were in the bags other than a razor to shave my face with, but know that it was important enough for me to stop running and go back to pick them both up. Atleast, it was in the vision. When I picked them up and turned back to run towards my home again, a swirling whirlwind of rain droplets from the sky formed over me and was from the ground up as far as I could see. I attempted to run from it as it encircled me, but felt helpless and couldn't take a step forward. I knew that this was the beginning stage of a tornado and cried out to God, "God help me!" As soon as I cried out to God, the Lord unrestricted me and I broke free from it and was able to run to my home. That same day was when tornadoes touched down in Alabama, Texas and threatened to touch down here in our home town of Abilene, TX.
"When thou criest, let thy companies deliver thee; but the wind shall carry them all away; vanity shall take them: but he that putteth his trust in Me shall possess the land, and shall inherit my holy mountain." Isaiah 57:13
I believe that the Lord wanted to relay to me that because the U.S. has been casting our cares upon the world and not upon Him, He would make a statement where we would have to experience life without the things that don't follow us to Heaven so we could reflect on what matters - relationships with others and Him.
When I went back to get the merchandise and was caught in the beginning stages of a tornado, I knew it was because I went back to get the bags. Also, it doesn't hurt to mention that in less than four weeks these twisters have hit urban areas especially hard -Birmingham and Tuscaloosa, Ala, near Oklahoma City and Joplin, MO. About thirty minutes ago the newscasters just reported a Wal-Mart being completely demolished. Can God make His reason more obvious?
God hears our cries and displayed that through this vision by unrestricting me from potential death and setting me free, after I cried out to Him. He wants to hear us cry out to Him with repentant hearts so he can deliver us from our false idols and hearts that have neglected Him. The false idol He was speaking of was ourselves because it was personal merchandise that I had to recover, thus putting my life on the line. We put our lives on the line, each day that we do not repent from our sin and direct our lives towards Him.
In conclusion, God will allow loss in order to attract our attention to Him. This is one of the ways He loves us.
"For the LORD corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights." Proverbs 3:12
