Sometimes I have dreams that I know are significant, but I don’t always share them because I don’t fully understand them. I had a dream on May 26th that was like that. I am still quite perplexed by the dream, but last night the Holy Spirit opened my understanding some.
In the dream I was sitting in a meeting in what seemed like a small hotel conference room with a coworker and two other unfamiliar people. As we were talking, our boss came into the room and asked us to step outside. He asked why we were carrying on as normal when Trump Tower was under attack. We answered that we were not aware of the attack. He coyly told us to pay attention and let him know if anything happened that he needed to know about.
We abruptly ended our meeting. I walked over to the window and used both hands to pull the curtains a part. I was shocked to see a tall skyscraper of a big city skyline ablaze against a dark sky. I assumed it was Trump Tower in New York City. The odd part was that nobody seemed alarmed, and everything was continuing on as normal. Confused, I walked to a restaurant next door to the meeting room. My husband was sitting at a table, so I sat down with him to talk with him about what was going on.
As we were talking, my son walked in to the restaurant (which was much fancier than any restaurant I have ever been to), and he started to collect truffles from a bowl on the table. I warned him that he had to pay by the truffle so he might want to slow down. He assured me that he had the money to cover the truffles, so my husband and I continued our conversation. As we talked, I saw the shadow of an intruder dressed in all black on the outside of the building trying to get in. I told him we were in danger and needed to leave immediately.
We calmly left the restaurant to find the intruder standing in the foyer. We tried to sneak by unnoticed, but the intruder turned around swiftly and grabbed my arm–pulling me away from my husband, who protested that he should be taken and not me. As he rushed to my side, I was astonished to discover that the intruder was a woman. As I mentioned before, she was dressed in all black with a black head wrap. Her skin was dark ebony, and she was of obvious African descent. She had her eyes set on my husband in anger, so I grabbed her arms, stretched them long, and tied them up (I’ve done this in several dreams, and I think it gives a clue that I am dealing with a demonic spirit instead of a human since one obviously cannot tie up a person’s arms). The woman sort of chuckled, turned her face away from us, and untied her arms. I could sense her boiling anger.
As she finished untying her arms, she sharply snapped her head back to look at us. She cut her eyes with fierceness, and in a strong African accent said, “I make war with Eric and Brandy Strait.”
I looked down to discover that I was pregnant. My belly protruded as if I were full term. I yelled back at her, “You can make all of the war you want, but I already know that we have victory in Jesus, and you can’t harm us! And you CANNOT have my baby!”
I awoke from the dream and tried to process what the dream meant because for one–I am NOT pregnant. I just could not put it all together. I have been pondering the dream for days, and I still do not fully understand (sometimes it can take months or years for me to understand some dreams that I’ve had). Although I may not have full revelation of this dream for a while, last night the Holy Spirit reminded me of this dream and showed me that there is war being waged against this country, our president, Christians, and the unborn.
Leading up to this revelation, my husband and I were talking and somehow got on the subject of a tragedy that took place in our hometown many years ago in which the deaths of a brother and sister were suspected to be the result of occult practices. We found an article in Texas Monthly that detailed what happened, and we were astonished at the possibility that something like that could take place so close to us. The article described how there were rumors the deaths resulted because the brother would not provide one of his sister’s blonde-haired, blue-eyed daughters as a sacrifice. While this may seem far-fetched and unbelievable, I am becoming more and more convinced that occult practices are more common place in this country than we think.
As my husband and I discussed the possibility of occult practices being involved in those deaths, I recalled seeing an article that was shared on Jeremiah Johnson’s Facebook page. The article was an interview with a former Satanist who shared about his 26 years in the occult and his involvement in ritual abortions. As I read the horrific details about these abortions, I recalled the dream. The woman (demonic spirit) waged war on my husband and I. I sensed that she wanted my unborn child, and I had to declare that she had no right to harm us or the baby. While I am not pregnant, I believe the dream signified that the innocent unborn are under attack in this country–just as our country and president is under attack–which was signified by the Trump Tower being ablaze.
I believe that the following portion of scripture depicts what is happening in our land:
37 They even sacrificed their sons
And their daughters to demons,
38 And shed innocent blood,
The blood of their sons and daughters,
Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan;
And the land was polluted with blood.
39 Thus they [a]were defiled by their own works,
And played[b] the harlot by their own deeds.
Statistics show that the shedding of the innocent blood of the unborn is a staggering problem. The CDC website states that it has been conducting abortion surveillance since 1969 to document the number and characteristics of women obtaining legal induced abortions in the United States. A total of 638,169 abortions for 2015 were reported to CDC from 49 reporting areas. Among these 49 reporting areas, the abortion rate for 2015 was 11.8 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years, and the abortion ratio was 188 abortions per 1,000 live births.
We must pray for this country. We must pray that lawmakers will begin to change our abortion laws. We must cry out for the unborn. We must declare that the enemy cannot have our babies! God will not continue to allow innocent blood to be shed, for He is a mighty and just God.
Psalm 9:7-8 — “But the LORD abides forever; He has established His throne for judgment, And He will judge the world in righteousness; He will execute judgment for the peoples with equity.”
