The Journey of Awakening (Part 4)


I shared four posts a few months back unpacking a powerful dream given to my friend, Greg Hood. The dream dealt with Holy Spirit reopening four past wells of revival. The four wells had to do with prayer, spiritual leaders being renewed with holy fire, world missions, and a great harvest.


Greg has now had an incredible sequel to the dream, revealing four more wells that Holy Spirit intends to reopen. I covered wells 1, 2, and most of 3 last week. If you did not see them you may want to use the links to read those before you read, listen to, or watch today’s post (well 1, well 2, and well 3). Also, after today’s prayer, I will include the dream in its entirety for your convenience and/or review. (I won’t read it on the post.) Today’s post is regarding the remainder of the third well and also the final one, well number four.


The third well was named Addereth (“mantle, glory”) and was filled with mantels for believers in the body of Christ, not just for those in leadership. Leaders were assigned to distribute these mantels and giftings to believers, as Ephesians 4:11-12 instructs us. Here is the remainder of the dream:


THE DREAM

“Gabriel then led Dutch and me back to the door and just before stepping out of the Addereth Well, he handed us both a golden key and said to us, ‘These keys work the same as keys to a safety deposit box. You will need them both to enter this well and remove these coats. Turn the keys together and this entire room will unlock to you. You may access it at any time you feel it’s needed. You will know which coat to pull and on whom to place it.’


“We heard knocking on the door. It seemed as if many people were knocking all at once. We opened it and were taken aback. There were so many people outside this door. It seemed to be a little disorderly. We could see in the dream that there were many other apostolic leaders there, bringing the people into lines and groups to receive a coat. I recognized some but not all of the apostolic leaders.”


FOURTH WELL

“As we stepped outside the door, we could see another well to our right that had not been visible when we went into the door of the Addereth Well. It was now visible as we exited. Dutch said to these leaders, ‘Bring these people into order as we prepare this next well.’


“As we came near to this fourth well, we could see that it was bulging. It was in the form of a silo, and was so full it looked as though it was going to burst. We knew this well had great value. I pointed out to Dutch that this well had a plate on it, also. This plate was not like the others, however. It was not damaged in any way, nor was the name engraved on it, as had been done to the others. The name of this well was handwritten on a burial cloth, which also had what I knew was the face of Christ on it. It read, ‘My Harvest Well - Mantle and Release Workers - Your Keys Work Here - Matthew 13:30.’


“Dutch and I both knew intuitively what this meant. We took the keys Gabriel had given and inserted them into the two keyholes in the side of this well - right on the bulge! We turned our keys and the well simply bulged all the more.


“We quickly returned to the Addereth Well, inserted our keys in the door, and opened it. We began accessing coats from this well, laying them on the shoulders of those lined up outside. The other leaders also had access to this well and began doing the same thing. As we mantled each person with these coats, we would direct them to the ‘My Harvest Well.’ We did this for what seemed like hours. Those we mantled began entering the ‘My Harvest Well.’ The more they entered, the more the well would swell.


“We then noticed that we were no longer in a graveyard but a garden and the old, iron fence had become a fortified wall.” End of Dream


MY THOUGHTS

The fact that Greg and I were each given keys to this Addereth Well, both of which were necessary to open it - like safe deposit boxes - is very revealing. It is obviously telling us that the 5-fold gifts Christ gave the church, listed in Ephesians 4:11, must work together to prepare and mantle believers. No single leader or gift can accomplish this by him or herself. In the dream, many leaders were mantling a multitude of people. As I stated in Friday’s post, the fulfilling of Christ’s commission by all believers, rather than just the clergy, will be the greatest game-changer since the book of Acts.


This can be seen through the fourth well. It is titled, My Harvest Well, which was written on a grave cloth that obviously symbolized the death of Christ. It is through His sacrifice, the power of His shed blood, that this great harvest can occur.


Greg and I, representing leaders in the body of Christ, could not handle this harvest by ourselves. We had to go back to Addereth Well and “enlist” the body of Christ, at large. Only then could this overwhelming harvest be reaped.


At the conclusion of the dream, the location of the wells had been transformed from a graveyard to a garden. Incredible! The prophet Ezekiel saw a valley of dry bones and was asked, “Can these bones live?” (Ezekiel 37:3) The answer, of course, is “Absolutely!” Much of the earth is about to be transformed from a spiritual graveyard, filled with spiritually dead individuals, to a fruitful garden, destined to be harvested. The greatest spiritual harvest in the history of the world is about to take place. And we all can experience the privilege of being the harvesters.


After the name of this last well, is the phrase “Your keys work here.” This is most certainly a reference to the keys of the kingdom Jesus promised us in Matthew 16:18-19. These keys work in this harvest! And the verse listed after this statement is Matthew 13:30, which ends with the phrase, “Gather the wheat into my barn.”


To recap the dream, the first well represents the transformation of those who are disillusioned and dispossessed, into believers walking in the kingly anointing of Christ, the Lion of Judah. The second well pictures restored spiritual leaders, now on fire and igniting churches with the fire of God. The third well demonstrates the fruit of this: the members of the body of Christ being mantled with glorious gifts, enabling them to fulfill the great commission of Christ. And the fourth well reveals the great, overflowing harvest that is now beginning.


Pray with me:


Father, in the words of the Moravian missionaries many years ago, “May the Lamb who was slain receive the reward of His suffering.” We are confident You are about to enact the greatest campaign of Kingdom activity in the history of the world. You have been preparing the church, Christ’s Ekklesia, for this. We ask for the preparation to continue: Awaken the lions of Christ; restore leaders to passionate, holy fire; mantle believers with glorious gifts and anointings, and bring in this great harvest.


As You do so, continue to transform our nation. Shake all that needs to be shaken, until America has been restored to the calling and destiny You placed on her. Continue to awaken Americans to the evil that is taking place in our country. Deliver us from ungodly leaders who oppose what You stand for and that have impure desires to transform America into something else. Do not allow this to happen. Save us! And we not only ask for this, we boldly declare what You have said, “America shall be saved!”


And even though it is not the theme of this post or dream, we continue to pray for the Supreme Court Justices as they decide the Dobbs case. Move upon them until there are enough willing to reverse the evil decree of Roe versus Wade. Let nothing convince those who intend to vote accordingly to change their minds. And we ask these things in Christ’s name. Amen.


Our decree:


We decree that Christ’s great harvest cannot be stopped.

The Journey of Awakening Dream

“The dream started with Dutch and me walking through a field containing many wells, just as we did in the first dream. We were commenting about how there were a lot of wells that looked abandoned. As we were talking I said to Dutch, ‘Do you hear that? I hear the sound of metal grinding against metal. It sounds like gears grinding.’

“Dutch said, ‘I hear it.’

“We began walking towards the sound and as we did, Gabriel, the Archangel, appeared walking beside us. He said, ‘It’s time to re-open other wells in America. She has reached another milestone within the journey of awakening.’

“Dutch replied, ‘Journey?’

“Gabriel said, ‘Yes! She has been in the process of this awakening since late 2000.’

“We were approaching the well making the loud grinding noise. Upon arrival, we saw that it was sitting in a field with other wells, which were all fenced in by an old, rusted, iron fence. We knew immediately that we were in some sort of graveyard. Gabriel spoke again, ‘Gentlemen, these wells will live again. Resurrection power is here! The time was set and is now for these wells to begin to function at full capacity. They will give you the insight and strategies you’ll need for the advancement of awakening, in a way that darkness will not be able to hold back.’ He went on to say, ‘You are in a great time of war, in the seen, and the unseen. Go to work!’

FIRST WELL

“As we approached the first well, the one making the loud grinding noise, we began to realize that it was not a grinding, but a groaning. This well, like those we had seen in the previous field (in the previous dream), had a bronze, engraved plate on it. Dutch took his hand and wiped away a tarnished film on the bronze plate, just as he had done with the previous wells. He said, ‘I can read it. It says, “Rappahannock River Well - No Rank Needed - Not an Old Light but a New Light.” Underneath that is written, ‘Romans 5:17.’

“As Dutch finished reading, Gabriel touched the well and it opened up. We could see inside, and when looking into it saw a scene, a vision. What we saw was shocking: people of many different ethnicities, ages, and walks of life, traipsing around a battlefield. I said to Dutch, ‘These people are in hope deferred. They’re dazed!’ We could see in the vision within the dream, that there were thousands of crowns laying on the ground around the people. No one knew whose crown was whose. This was causing them to just wander around, slumped over, as if they were defeated. They didn’t know it, but they were not truly defeated! We could also see that each of them had a bronze key attached to and hanging from their shoulders.

“Dutch said, ‘Hood, give me the horn from your bag.’ I reached into a bag slung over my shoulder and pulled out a bronze battlefield bugle, which I handed to Dutch. He stuck his head into the well where the open vision was being seen, placed the bronze battle bugle to his lips. But instead of blowing into it, he used it as a microphone. Pointing it into the open well he began to declare loudly, ‘KINGS, HUMBLE YOURSELVES AND RETURN TO YOUR CROWNS! TAKE UP THE CAUSE! ALIGN WITH COURAGE AND DISCIPLINE! IT MAY BE BLOODY BUT YOU WILL REIGN!’

“Dutch then pulled his head and the bronze battle bugle from the opening of the well and, as he did, we could again clearly see into the vision. Some individuals were kneeling down on both knees, picking up their crown and placing it on their heads. They began to stand upright and a straightening of their backs occurred. Some then began bending down and picking up the crowns of others, placing them on the rightful owners’ heads. All of this was happening quickly. We then heard a roar from the vision within this well. Gabriel quickly reached with his arm and pulled Dutch and me to his side.

“Immediately, crowned LIONS began jumping from the well into the graveyard, landing so forcibly that they shook the ground. The people had become lions! They immediately placed their noses to the ground and began smelling. They laid on their bellies and roared mightily. Many lions were sniffing and roaring, and doing so in different directions. They would then stand for a moment, with noses in the air, run forward a good ways and drop to their bellies again, roaring forcefully.

“This was occurring with every lion that jumped from the well - there were thousands of them! Their roars were so forcible and loud that we could literally feel the ground and the heavens shaking.

“Gabriel began to laugh with joy!

“He then said, ‘You will teach them to keep their crowns on and straight. You will teach them to amplify their roar so that darkness will always be in a state of shaking. This is a key to continual kingdom advancement.’ He went on to say to us in a matter-of-fact voice, ‘Teach them to keep the keys on their shoulders from tarnishing. The tarnishing will hinder their ability to lock and unlock the supernatural.’

“Dutch then looked at Gabriel and said, ‘Let me make sure I understand this correctly. We are not enlisting Christians; we are enlisting kings!’

“Gabriel replied, ‘King is the only order in the Kingdom.’

“As he was speaking with us, we could see that these lions had made their way off into the far distance. Dutch said, ‘That’s the Ekklesia!’

SECOND WELL

“We then heard an alarm sound. It was like a steam whistle attached to a time clock at a factory in bygone days, signaling the beginning or end of shift work. We turned our attention to this sound. It was coming from another well in this fenced-in, graveyard-like area. As we approached this well, we could see that it was in the shape of a steeple, and had what looked like stained glass windows along the bottom.

“Dutch located the engraved plate on this well; it had moss growing on it. He pulled the moss from it and we could see the plate was made of pure silver. He read the writing on the plate: ‘Frelinghuysen Well of His Rising Heat - Set Temperature at 600° - Stand With Courage In A House Full of the Lost. John 15:25-27.’

“As Dutch finished reading from the silver plate, Gabriel said to us, ‘The heat from the furnace in the belly of the preachers will burn at 600°, then God’s house will return to a house of birthing and fathering.’

“Dutch turned to me, pointed his finger with a great intensity, and shouted ‘PROPHESY!’

“It was as if a lightning bolt shot from his finger, hit me in the chest, and I began to prophesy, ‘The Spirit of the Lord says unto His called, His gifts - turn again your face to Mine that I may ignite you to burn again! For My passion I will impart into your eyes. Your eyes will burn as my eyes burn, says the Lord. My passion will consume you and you’ll begin to see as I see. I am opening the unseen to you as I have not opened it to My sons and daughters thus far. Open your mouth, says the Lord of hosts, I am releasing through you the sword of My word. Your words are forming into My words. And My words will become a sword that I use to sculpt My Body, so that I may release her into the deep flow of My awakening.’

“As I finished prophesying, Dutch began to decree, ‘I STOKE THIS FURNACE AND COMMAND THE COALS TO RECEIVE THE BREATH OF GOD! FATHER IS BLOWING ON YOU! FROM YOUR BELLY YOU ARE BRINGING FORTH THE FIRE OF COURAGE TO STAND. YOU WILL NOT BE MOVED BY THEIR FACES OR THEIR THREATS. YOU WILL RESTORE, RECHARGE AND RELEASE THE EKKLESIA INTO HER FIREBRAND ASSIGNMENTS. FIRE OF GOD, CONSUME!’

“Immediately when Dutch finished decreeing, what seemed like thousands of angels flew into this well through the stained glass windows. (They broke the windows out as they did this.) We could see through the broken windows that angels were standing beside many ministers from many congregations. The ministers began igniting the people with a very bright fire, which came from a light piercing through the broken stained glass windows.

“The top of this steeple-shaped well caught on fire and was consumed, reconnecting these congregations to an open Heaven…

THIRD WELL

“Gabriel said, ‘There are two more wells that are primed and ready to open. Heaven has released the reopen order. This is also a part of “Operation Redeem All.” Before you reopen this well, you must know and prepare yourself for what will be released. This well has been guarded and hidden for many years.’


“Dutch said to Gabriel, ‘Where is this well and how do we get to it?’


“Gabriel then said to us, ‘It's just here, next to Frelinghuysen Well of His Rising Heat. Look into the thicket of overgrown brush. You will find it in there.’


“Dutch and I began to pull back a thick mass of overgrown briars and thorns to get to what was hidden within them. Our hands started to bleed some and we were spending more time pulling the thorns from our hands than we were uncovering this well. We took a step back and I said to Dutch, ‘We are going to need some help with this.’


“Dutch replied to me, ‘Yes, I am recognizing now what we are up against. This type of briar responds to SOUND, not hands.’ We turned to look back at Gabriel for some assistance and as we did, we could see that Jeremy Burk was approaching us with his guitar, and a few other people. Dutch said to Jeremy, ‘Son, it’s so good to see you. I was just about to ask Gabriel if he could assist us with a sound barrier breaker and you showed up. Take your guitar and your team, and remove these briars so we can get to this well.’


“Jeremy and his team started to worship. As they did, the briars began to wilt and disappear. The sound he released was like no other sound we have heard in worship or the church. It was a new sound. We were now able to see this old well. We only had to take a few steps to get to it after this new sound was released.


“We were amazed at what this well looked like. It was simply a door on a frame standing by itself. Dutch approached the door and, like the others, there was an engraved plate on it. The plate was covered with mud as if someone had thrown a blob of mud at the door and it stuck to the plate. The mud was dried, not wet. [More defilement and hiding of this well.] Dutch reached up to the engraved plate and begin removing the mud with his hands. It became clear to us that the plate was gold. It too, had writing on it. Dutch said, ‘It reads, “Well of Addereth - Recover, Redeem, and Activate.”’


“The Archangel Gabriel said to us, ‘Open the door and go inside.’ Dutch opened the door and we walked through it, entering a very large, previously unseen room. Gabriel walked us into a portion of this room which looked like an old-style cleaners. It had many rotating, moving mechanisms that held many coats, robes, capes, sportcoats, and jackets. These coats had all kinds of symbols on them and were in every color and size you could imagine. They were also arranged according to the seven spheres of influence.


“Gabriel said to us, ‘Examine them, look them over; you will know exactly how to recover, redeem, and activate them.’ As we began to look at the different types of coats, we could see that all of them had the number 142 handwritten inside their lapels. When we would touch a coat, this number would begin to illuminate as a light, going from bright to dim, then back to bright. Gabriel said to us, ‘Some of these coats have never been worn. Some have been abandoned and others have not been passed on to their rightful successor. Your assignment is to disburse them back into the Ekklesia. It’s time for the old and the new to merge and bring forth the full weight of Heaven on the earth.’


“Gabriel then led Dutch and me back to the door and just before stepping out of the Addereth Well, he handed us both a golden key and said to us, ‘These keys work the same as keys to a safety deposit box. You will need them both to enter this well and remove these coats. Turn the keys together and this entire room will unlock to you. You may access it at any time you feel it’s needed. You will know which coat to pull and on whom to place it.’


“We heard knocking on the door. It seemed as if many people were knocking all at once. We opened it and were taken aback. There were so many people outside this door. It seemed to be a little disorderly. We could see in the dream that there were many other apostolic leaders there, bringing the people into lines and groups to receive a coat. I recognized some but not all of the apostolic leaders.


FOURTH WELL

“As we stepped outside the door, we could see another well to our right that had not been visible when we went into the door of the Addereth Well. It was now visible as we exited. Dutch said to these leaders, ‘Bring these people into order as we prepare this next well.’


“As we came near to this fourth well, we could see that it was bulging. It was in the form of a silo, and was so full it looked as though it was going to burst. We knew this well had great value. I pointed out to Dutch that this well had a plate on it, also. This plate was not like the others, however. It was not damaged in any way, nor was the name engraved on it, as had been done to the others. The name of this well was handwritten on a burial cloth, which also had what I knew was the face of Christ on it. It read, ‘My Harvest Well - Mantle and Release Workers - Your Keys Work Here - Matthew 13:30.’


“Dutch and I both knew intuitively what this meant. We took the keys Gabriel had given and inserted them into the two keyholes in the side of this well - right on the bulge! We turned our keys and the well simply bulged all the more.


“We quickly returned to the Addereth Well, inserted our keys in the door, and opened it. We began accessing coats from this well, laying them on the shoulders of those lined up outside. The other leaders also had access to this well and began doing the same thing. As we mantled each person with these coats, we would direct them to the ‘My Harvest Well.’ We did this for what seemed like hours. Those we mantled began entering the ‘My Harvest Well.’ The more they entered, the more the well would swell.


“We then noticed that we were no longer in a graveyard but a garden and the old, iron fence had become a fortified wall.”
