The World Seers Series (Part 4)
On Monday (1/10/2022) we began discussing a dream about America, given to my friend Greg Hood. This is a very enlightening and important dream, filled with insight and revelation. (Though we are looking at it in segments, I will once again post the entire dream at the end of today’s post. I know many of you like to see the entire dream in one sitting.)
I will do very little review in today’s post since it would consume so much of the time. You may want to reread Monday’s-Wednesday’s posts (1/10-12/2022) to refresh your memory. You certainly should try and do so if you did not see them.
In the dream, a baseball team comprised of spiritual leaders in the church and representing the Kingdom of God, was playing in the World Seers Series. This was the last game of the series, the 8th inning, we were winning but the score was close, and we were very focused. Then the Holy Spirit initiated a change of strategy. Through this strategy, we were able to load the bases and position ourselves to win the game. Again, if you have not done so, please take a look at Monday’s, Tuesday’s, and Wednesday’s posts.
THE DREAM (continued)
“…As we were watching this, a phone rang in our dugout. Dutch answered it. We could see him looking up and behind home plate into one of the skyboxes as he talked on the phone. He was speaking to our team owner, who said to Dutch, ‘You are to pinch-hit. We have a wicket here to not only win the game but to win big. Dutch, you know this pitcher. He has lost big games before. He is not what he has made himself out to be. Be patient and don’t be distracted by what he will throw at you. He wants to get your eyes off the pennant.’
“Dutch hung up the phone and said, ‘Hood, hand me my bat. I’ve been instructed to pinch-hit.’ I (Greg) reached for Dutch’s bat and pulled it from a large wooden communion box where it was locked away. As I removed it I could see clearly that the bat had inscribed on it ‘Ephesians 1:17.’ I handed it to Dutch as he said to me, ‘What direction should I launch the ball?’
“I said to Dutch, ‘Straight for the throat of the pitcher! Remove his voice!’
“Dutch replied with a smile on his face, ‘You know, many will think this is a dirty and illegal move on our part. But what the heck, we won’t allow them to force us to play by their rules anymore. We play ball for the Royal.’
“As Dutch walked to the batter’s box I said, ‘If you hit the mark it will change this game.’
“The pitcher approached the batter’s box as Dutch stepped into it and said to him, ‘I am here to take you and this weak team out once and for all. You have no hope of making it out of this batter’s box in your right mind. This is my season and you will not steal it from me!’
“Dutch stepped up to him, just an inch from his face, and spoke with a firm and bold voice, ‘I am here to uncover you. Now go back to your perch and throw the ball if you dare!’
“As he walked back to the pitcher’s mound we could see his name on the back of his jersey. Thus far in the dream, we had not known who he was or who this team was. Written there was the name, ‘Zephon.’
“He released his first pitch and it was not aimed anywhere close to home plate, sailing over the stadium wall behind home plate, hitting a bus in the parking lot and putting a large dent in the back left side of it. An alarm sounded with a very distinct sound. We knew this was our team’s bus. The umpire shouted, ‘STRIKE ONE!’
“The opposing coach came to the pitcher’s mound again and brought the pitcher, Zephon, another baseball glove. It was a left-hander’s glove and an
old, greasy-looking ball which flew into the dugout. The umpire shouted ‘STRIKE TWO!’ Then he said to the pitcher, ‘You only have one strike left.’
“It was at this point in the dream that we noticed the umpire was wearing a white medical type coat with the insignia of a pharmacist on it. Dutch turned to the umpire and said to him, ‘You are no longer allowed to call this game; we remove you, and Michael will take your place!’ (I don’t know who Michael was in the dream but it seemed he was the angel.) Dutch then turned to the pitcher and said, ‘Throw your ball. This is your last pitch but not my last ball! I will deliver the third strike to you and your house!’
“Zephon threw the ball and Dutch hit it with a powerful swing. The ball went to its mark and struck the throat of the pitcher, taking his voice and his strength. Zephon was removed from the game. We knew in the dream the game had changed and he would never pitch again.” End of Dream
We are winning 22 to 20. The bases are loaded. The owner of the team in the skybox is obviously the Lord in heaven. He called me and told me to pinch-hit. I realize this could represent an assignment for me personally, but often in dreams of this nature I simply picture the Ekklesia (those in the body of Christ who understand their authority and the governmental calling of Matthew 16:18-19) and the prayer movement.
The Lord tells me I know this pitcher and, as we will see shortly, I do. The statement, “He has lost big games before. He is not what he has made himself out to be,” is also significant. Yahweh tells me to be patient, don’t become distracted, and keep my focus on the pennant (the word for a major league baseball team winning its championship). In other words, we must stay focused, not allowing the enemy to distract us in this very strategic season. Keep your eyes on the goal, the prize, the finish line.
My bat was in the “communion box.” This could speak of covenant - we will win through our covenant with Christ. It also speaks of our intimacy with Him - listening to and drawing near to Him. The scripture inscribed on the bat, Ephesians 1:17, is a verse that references “the spirit of wisdom and revelation” being given to the church. It will take this wisdom and revelation to win the spiritual war we are engaged in, and it will be found in the communion box. Incredible!
I was then told to hit the ball at the throat of the pitcher and remove his voice (influence). My response can be summarized as meaning we have operated with too little aggression against our spiritual enemy. The Ekklesia must arise in this hour and become aggressive in our spiritual warfare. Satan and his forces of darkness are deadly serious. Their nature is to steal, kill and destroy. They are evil and we must relentlessly and aggressively resist them.
I am then told if I “hit the mark” it will change the game. This is another meaning of the Hebrew word for intercession, paga, which we mentioned Tuesday. Still today in Israel, the word for “bullseye” is paga. Friends, if we pray as we are being instructed, we will win! This is our year of breakthrough for America!
The pitcher began to mock me, which I answered by declaring that I was going to uncover or expose him. It was then that we saw his name, Zephon. (I have written posts about this spirit before and you can read them here and here.) This is incredibly significant. Zephon is one of the names of Baal, the ruling principality over America. This is also one of the spirits God exposed and conquered during the Exodus of Israel (see Exodus 14).
God judged all of the gods of Egypt in the Exodus, but He saved this one for last, waiting until it appeared Israel was hopelessly trapped. At the Red Sea it looked like Egypt’s god, Zephon, “lord of the wind and seas” had Israel hopelessly trapped and would prevail over them. JUST LIKE AMERICA! But God sprang His trap, showed His great power and destroyed the armies of Egypt.
This is what Holy Spirit meant in the dream when He told me I knew this pitcher, that he had lost games before, and that he was not what he made himself out to be (all-powerful).
Zephon threw a wild pitch that went out of the stadium and hit our team bus. It was called a “strike!” We are being warned of strategies satan will use to “strike” us. Vehicles usually speak of ministries in dreams. This says to me the enemy will try and strike/attack ministries/leaders during this season. If he can distract leaders, he can hinder us from hearing in a way that causes us to win. Remember, the Lord, in the skybox, told me not to allow Zephon to distract me.
It was at this time that we noticed the umpire, who had been helping our adversaries, was wearing a pharmaceutical jacket. This in no way is an indictment against the medical community or pharmacists. It is likely a play on words regarding the Greek word, pharmakeia, which means not only drugs, but sorcery or witchcraft. It is saying that the occult and the powers of darkness have been warring against us; we, however, with the archangel Michael’s help, are displacing them.
I hit Zephon’s pitch, meaning that we, the Ekklesia, the prayer army, successfully met his attack. The ball struck him in the throat, removing his influence. We knew in the dream he would never pitch again. I believe this means he will never be able to rule our nation again.
Pray with me:
Father, You are without question asking the Ekklesia to step up to the plate in this hour, take our place of authority, and rule in the midst of our enemies (Psalm 110:2). This is our Esther season - we were born for this. Baal has ruled our nation for decades, stealing our inheritance, attempting to destroy our destiny, even demanding our children as blood sacrifices.
You have now set him up for failure. We have indeed seen him before - Your word makes clear that You know how to take him out. We will strike his throat and remove his voice. He will be overcome and never rule our nation again. You have loaded the bases, now give us the win!
We cover our leaders, ministries, and families with protective prayer. We declare that no witchcraft, no weapons, no strikes against them will prosper. None! We will prosper and be in health in this season (3 John 2). We will not only win, we will be more than conquerors (Romans 8:37).
We decree that the Ekklesia will win the World Seers Series!!!

The World Seer Series Dream
(Dreamed early the morning of January 2, 2022.
By Greg Hood)
As the dream started I could see that we were in a baseball stadium. I knew we were playing on our home field which in the dream was known as Royal Stadium. I also knew that the stadium was located in Washington D.C.
All the seats in the stadium were filled with people. I knew the people in the seats were mostly Americans. A smaller portion of the people were from somewhere I had never heard of. The attendees were there to watch what we knew was the World Seers Series.
Dutch and I coached one of the teams playing in the World Seer’s Series. (Our team was the Election prayer team, and more.) It was the final game in the series and we were ahead. It was our turn to bat. Dutch was the Head Coach of the team. He wrote out a new batting order, and hung it in our dugout for the team to see. The atmosphere in the dugout changed somewhat, with some thinking that the old batting order was better than the order Dutch had rewritten.
We had home-field advantage. It was the bottom of the 8th inning and we were winning. The scoreboard displayed the score of 20 for the opposing team and 22 for our team. I could see clearly on the scoreboard our team name - Kingdom Ekklesia. I could not make out the name of the opposing team; their name was very blurry.
The mood shifted in our dugout as our team made an effort to encourage one another. We knew we were in the last innings of this game and the game was tight. We didn’t take anything for granted now. We focused intensely. We were the underdog, it seemed, and there was great urgency to win this game for the nation.
Dutch shouted, “Smith, lead us off!”
Smith stepped from the dugout, but before making his way to home plate I said to him, “The ball needs to be hit straight down the first baseline with great force. Your assignment is to remove the hindrance that’s guarding first base.” As Smith walked toward home plate we could see he was wearing the number 5221 on his jersey. He stepped into the batter’s box and the pitcher threw him a curveball. He hit it so hard down the first baseline that the first baseman could not see it coming. It struck him on the side of his neck and incapacitated him. Anger became very evident in the opposing team because they now had no first baseman. The umpire at first base held Smith on first and would not allow him to advance.
Ken Malone was coaching first base and begin to speak to Smith. He instructed him to watch the third base coach for he would give the sign he needed to steal second. Coaching third base was the Archangel, Gabriel.
Dutch then said, “Jones, you are up. We need advancement. You know the pitch you are looking for!”
Jones said to Dutch, “I feel a confidence that I have never felt before. The pitcher will not be able to resist throwing me my pitch.”
Before Jones approached the batter’s box I said to him, “The guy in left field is expecting you to hit it high and long. Hit it high and short into left field. He won’t be able to adjust his position in time to catch you out.”
Jones smiled with a big grin and said, “This is what I was built for. I was born to give ‘left field’ problems.” We could see the numbers on his jersey as he walked to the batter’s box. He was wearing the number 2388. Just before the pitcher released the ball, Gabriel gave Smith the sign to steal. Smith shot from first and stole second.
The pitch landed just in front of home plate. The umpire called it a strike. Jones looked at Dutch for the correction. Dutch came out of the dugout very quickly and proceeded toward the umpire with fire in his eyes, and as he pointed his finger at the umpire he declared, “YOU WILL REVERSE THIS CALL AND GIVE IT BACK! YOU DO NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO CHANGE THE STRIKE ZONE!” The umpire reversed the call immediately. I could tell in the dream that it weakened his authority on the field when Dutch addressed him this way.
Before stepping back into the batter’s box, Jones looked at the pitcher and said, “You don’t have the nerve to throw me my pitch. You don’t have the ability to cause me to miss it. Throw that ‘cutter’ and I will hit it.” You could see the anger and pride on the pitcher’s face. He drew back and threw Jones his pitch. He threw it hard and fast. Jones hit it high and shallow into left field. The left fielder called it which stopped any of his other teammates from advancing toward the ball. The left fielder ran forward for the ball and as he did this he was watching the spin Jones had put on the ball. This confused him and caused him to trip, which caused him to miss the ball. When he fell, he dislocated both of his knees and could not stand back up. Jones easily made it to first base. Smith stayed at second.
Dutch then called from the dugout, “Johnson, you are up!”
Johnson took a bat in her hand and stepped from the dugout and I said to her, “They will position themselves at the wall because they know you can break the home run record with one swing of your bat. I feel you should bunt towards third.”
She replied, “That’s exactly what I was thinking. I have noticed that he does not have the rapidness in his eyes that he thinks he has.” As Johnson stood in the batter’s box we once again could see the number on the jersey. Her number was 4851. The pitcher mocked her as she stood there waiting for the pitch. He threw a fastball high and just outside the corner of the plate missing the strike zone. Johnson stood still. She never even twitched.
Seeing this, Gabriel looked at Smith and gave him the signal to steal third as soon as the pitcher started his next wind-up. The pitcher drew back his arm and as soon as he did, Smith left second base and it was almost as if he just appeared on third. This confused the pitcher as he caught Smith out of the corner of his eye stepping onto third base. He released the ball and it came to the plate again this time, low and just outside the strike zone.
Dutch stepped outside our dugout and motioned to Johnson to come over to him. He leaned into her ear and said, “Let the next two pitches go through. No swinging at what he is throwing. This will give us the strategy we need to win this.” Some thought that Dutch was thinking that the pitcher was done and he did not have any more strikes left in his arm.
Johnson stepped back to the batter’s box and did as Dutch had coached her to do. The next pitch came hard and fast. “STRIKE ONE” the umpire shouted and then laughed. The second pitch came as a change-up pitch and was very slow. “STRIKE TWO!”
Johnson stepped out of the batter’s box and took a deep breath looking back at Coach Dutch. Dutch motioned Johnson back to where he was standing and said, “The count is 2 and 2. We are in the right place to bunt it down the third baseline.”
She approached the plate again and positioned herself. The pitcher released a curveball. Johnson stepped into it and bunted down the third baseline. It caught the third baseman off guard. No one had ever bunted on this pitch before. He moved very slowly and retrieved the ball. He held it in fear that Smith would advance to home plate. Jones easily moved to second and Johnson took first.
Now the bases were loaded.
The coach and the catcher from the other team went out to the pitcher’s mound and began speaking with the pitcher. In the dream, we could tell there was much disagreement among them. It even seemed that the pitcher had authority over the coach of the other team.
As we were watching this, a phone rang in our dugout. Dutch answered it. We could see him looking up and behind home plate into one of the skyboxes as he talked on the phone. He was speaking to our team owner. The owner of the team said to Dutch, “You are to pinch-hit. We have a wicket here to not only win the game but to win big.” He went on to say, “Dutch, you know this pitcher. He has lost big games before. He is not what he has made himself out to be. Be patient and don’t be distracted by what he will throw at you. He wants to get your eyes off the pennant.”
Dutch hung up the phone and said, “Hood, hand me my bat. I’ve been instructed to pinch-hit.” I reached for Dutch’s bat and pulled it from a large wooden communion box that it was locked away in. As I removed it I could see clearly that the bat had inscribed on it Ephesians 1:17. I handed it to Dutch as he said to me, “What direction should I launch the ball?”
I said to Dutch, “Straight for the throat of the pitcher! Remove his voice!”
Dutch replied with a smile on his face, “You know, many will think this is a dirty and illegal move on our part. But what the heck, we won’t allow them to force us to play by their rules anymore. We play ball for the Royals.”
As Dutch walked to the batter’s box I said, “If you hit the mark it will change this game.”
The pitcher approached the batter’s box and as Dutch stepped into it, said to him, “I am here to take you and this weak team out once and for all. You have no hope of making it out of this batter’s box in your right mind. This is my season and you will not steal it from me!”
Dutch stepped up to him, just an inch of his face, and spoke with a firm and bold voice, “I am here to uncover you. Now go back to your perch and throw the ball if you dare!”
As he walked back to the pitcher’s mound we could see his name on the back of his jersey. (Remember thus far in the dream we did not know who he was or who this team was.) Written there was the name, “Zephon.”
He released his first pitch and it was not aimed anywhere close to home plate. It went over the stadium wall behind home plate and hit a bus that was parked in the parking lot. It put a large dent in the back left side of that bus. An alarm sounded with a very distinct sound. We knew this was our team’s bus. The umpire shouted, “STRIKE ONE!”
The coach came to the pitcher’s mound again and brought the pitcher, Zephon, another baseball glove. It was a left-hander’s glove and an old greasy-looking ball. The pitcher had been pitching right-handed the entire game up until now. He went into his wind-up and released the ball; it flew into the dugout. The umpire shouted, “STRIKE TWO!” The umpire spoke to the pitcher, “You only have one strike left.”
It was at this time in the dream that we noticed the umpire was wearing a white doctor’s-type coat that had the insignia of a Pharmacist on it. Dutch turned to the umpire and said to him, "You are no longer allowed to call this game; we remove you, and Michael will take your place!” (I don’t know who Michael was in the dream but am thinking the angel.) Dutch then turned to the pitcher and said, “Throw your ball. This is your last pitch but not my last ball! I will deliver the third strike to you and your house!”
Zephon threw the ball and Dutch hit it with a powerful swing. The ball went to its mark and struck the throat of the pitcher taking his voice and his strength. Zephon was removed from the game. We knew in the dream the game had changed and this pitcher would never pitch again.
