THE SPIRIT OF THE WORLD
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. … They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them.(1 John 4:1 & 5 ESV)
“Don’t believe everything you hear.” (Aesop) You should carefully examine what you are taught by teachers and preachers who claim you can have everything you want now. Not everyone who teaches and preaches about God comes from God.
When we test something, we are trying to decide what is true. Only very gullible people believe every claim they hear or find in books or on the internet. We should be more like the Bereans who Luke praises in Acts: “Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures…

A Prophecy for America?
The following video is to be viewed with discretion and prayer. I do not know if the source is legit or a modern prophet. It caught my attention only because it reminded me of three dreams I have had over my lifetime. I also remember reading of similar “visions” by others. I do not know if they and the source of this video are the same.
I am not saying I am a prophet, or even that the dreams are prophetic. The coincidence caught my attention and I feel compelled to share these dreams with you, for what they are worth. They may not mean anything. One thing is for sure, God will not be patient with America forever. We are past due a terrible judgment.
My first dream is one I had more than once, in my teenage years. Somehow I was trapped inside a yellow VW Beetle that was submerged in water. The inside of the car was quickly filling with water and I knew it was my time to die. However, I was not afraid. I remember feeling very peaceful and thinking, ” Here I come Jesus”.
That dream may or may not be related to the others. I mention it only because it involves water.
The second dream I had has left such an impression on me that I continue to “hold it close to my heart”, even though I dreamed it many years ago. Again, I think I was in my upper teens.
In this dream, an extremely large group of people are gathered on a beach. We are standing elbow to elbow, looking out at the ocean. It is night time. For some reason, we begin singing “The Hallelujah Chorus” and the waves of the sea move in tempo with the hymn. At the final “Hallelujah”, a huge wave rises high into the air. The dream ends.
I awakened from that dream feeling giddy but also with “butterflies in my stomach”. You know the feeling. It has stayed with me and continues to feel important somehow.
The third dream is actually a blending of two separate dreams. I had them a few years a part, within the last 17 years. They are blended in my memory because they are so similar, I cannot recall which details match which dream. The gist of these two dreams is that the area where I am (completely unfamiliar to me, I do not recognize it) is about to be flooded beyond anything we have ever seen before. Somehow I know this flood is coming and am frantically searching for someone. Again, I am not afraid. I am at peace about the situation except for my trying to find a loved one so we can be together when the event happens. Water is already starting to rise, but it is not raining. I am expecting an act of God to happen at any moment and am just wanting to have my family near, so we can be together when it happens.
There you have it. Take them for what they are worth. I want only to honor God with this blog and what I share with you. If you know of any similar experiences, please let me know. I am praying for wisdom and discernment, as we all should be.
I used to just think of the last two dreams as a general expectation of the judgment of God upon our sin-driven nation. Now I wonder if there is something to the water aspects of them.
