Steward the Rain

During the past few days, we’ve been looking at a dream Holy Spirit gave my friend, Greg Hood. The dream is about revivals of the past, represented in the dream by oil wells. The wells were no longer pumping or producing, having been neglected and abandoned. They were called “orphaned wells,” a term used in the industry to describe abandoned oil wells. God‘s purpose throughout the dream is to reveal His desire to rejuvenate wells of revival and release their fruit once again. The first one represented prayer, the second a fresh baptism of fire to spiritual leaders, and the third a great missions movement and a worldwide harvest. If you’ve not done so already, I encourage you to read or watch the three previous posts. Today we will look at the fourth and final part of the dream.

CANE RIDGE WELL

We were not allowed to stand around and watch. Gabriel said, “To the next well!”

We quickly moved to the next well. It seemed to be a ways from us. As we made our way there we could see trickles of water beginning to drip from different parts of the well. This time Dutch did not use his handkerchief to clean it; he used his hand. As he wiped away some muddy water seeping from the well and running over the engraved plate he said, “This water is hot; it’s the Cane Ridge Well. The plate reads, ‘Be ready, this well erupts often! It’s on a timer!’”

Gabriel said to Dutch, “Speak the timing of the Lord over this well. Speak it now! The time is NOW!” (The rumbling of the Fulton Street Prayer Well was getting louder by the second. It was so intense we could feel the ground shaking!) Dutch took a step forward, climbed the well, and from its top began declaring, “THIS IS THE TIMING OF THE LORD! THIS IS THE GREAT RELEASE OF HIS PROMISED OUTPOURING! AMERICA, RECEIVE YOUR GIFT! AMERICA, SHIFT! AMERICA, AWAKEN FROM YOUR SLEEP, FOR NOW, YOUR SALVATION IS HERE!”

THE WELLS MIX


As Dutch declared this from the Cane Ridge Well, it began to swell as it filled with water, ready to burst into a geyser. Dutch jumped from the Cane Ridge Well and as soon as his feet hit the ground the Fulton Street Well erupted, shaking the earth so much that it caused the Cane Ridge Well to erupt, sending its water high in the air. The erupting water from these two wells began coming together to the point that we could not tell which was water from the Fulton Street Well and which was from the Cane Ridge Well. As it shot into the sky the water ignited the clouds over America and fires of awakening began to fall all over the nation.

Gabriel leaned into Dutch and said, “Now, steward the rain!”

The fourth and last well-mentioned in the dream was Cane Ridge. The Cane Ridge Revival occurred in Kentucky in 1801, 20 miles or so east of Lexington. People poured in by the thousands. “One traveler wrote a Baltimore friend that he was on his way to the ‘greatest meeting of its kind ever known’ and that ‘religion has got to such a height here that people attend from a great distance; on this occasion, I doubt not but there will be 10,000 people.’

“He underestimated, but his miscalculation is understandable. Communions (annual three-to-five-day meetings climaxed with the Lord’s Supper) gathered people in the dozens, maybe the hundreds. At this Cane Ridge Communion, though, sometimes 20,000 people swirled about the grounds—watching, praying, preaching, weeping, groaning, falling. Though some stood at the edges and mocked, most left marveling at the wondrous hand of God.

“The Cane Ridge Communion quickly became one of the best-reported events in American history, and according to Vanderbilt’s historian Paul Conkin, “arguably ... the most important religious gathering in all of American history.” It ignited the explosion of evangelical religion, which soon reached into nearly every corner of American life. For decades the prayer of camp meetings and revivals across the land was ‘Lord, make it like Cane Ridge.’”(1) Cane Ridge paved the way for the Second Great Awakening.

When we arrived at the Cane Ridge Well in the dream, the water was already beginning to seep up and out of it. And it was hot, heated by the fire of God! We were told the eruptions were on a timer and that we were to decree over the well that the time was NOW for another gushing forth.

It is extremely significant that throughout the dream the first well we visited, Fulton Street Well, grew louder and louder. This was the well of intercession. The louder and more intense it became, the more the other wells began to open, also. This prayer well was now literally shaking the ground.

At the direction of the angel, Gabriel, I climbed the well and from its top began declaring. The declaration is so powerful it is worth reading again: “This is the timing of the Lord! This is the great release of His promised outpouring! America, receive your gift! America, shift! America, awaken from your sleep, for now, your salvation is here!”

WOW!

I believe with all of my being this is true. The great revival we have been crying out for is upon us. It’s time! Speak these words to your region. If you lead a congregation or group, speak them together. Do it over and over!

As we did so in the dream, the pressure underground continued to increase. As I jumped down, the prayer well finally erupted, causing Cane Ridge to also erupt. The sky-high geysers merged into one in the air, then the water from the two geysers ignited the clouds - there’s a picture for ya! - into a holy fire of awakening, which fell on America!

“Now, steward the rain!” Gabriel told us.

We will have much fruit and work of Holy Spirit to steward in the coming years. Revival fire is about to be rained upon us. May the Fulton Street Well of prayer grow louder and louder, Tennent’s Well of fire in the hearts of leaders grow hotter and hotter, the Haystack Well of worldwide harvest release its laborers, and the awakening fire of Cane Ridge and the Second Great Awakening explode into the third.

Pray with me:

Father, we believe You are going to open the well of Cane Ridge and the Second Great Awakening, releasing fire from heaven to rain on the earth. We boldly ask You for this. We want our prayers to shake the earth and cause these wells of revival to burst open. May the power released from our intercession be explosive.

We declare this is the timing of the Lord! This is the great release of His promised outpouring! America, receive your gift! America, shift! America, awaken from your sleep, for now, your salvation is here!

And even now, Father, release wisdom and prepare leaders to steward the rain of revival that is coming. Give us heaven‘s strategy. Give us an understanding of our times. And give us Your heart for all of this. We ask for it all in the name of Yeshua.

Our decree:

The fire of revival is going to rain upon the earth; America - and many nations of the earth - shall receive God’s promised outpouring.

The dream in its entirety:

THE FOUR WELLS OF REVIVAL


The dream started with Dutch and me standing in the middle of what we thought were oil fields, much like you see in Texas. Oil wells were everywhere - many different sizes and shapes. I commented to Dutch, “These are not traditional wells. These are special wells. Look how they are shaped and spaced apart.”


We began walking through the field looking at each well, examining their components and how they were made. I then said to Dutch, “These wells are all still, not moving. They’re orphaned!”


Dutch said to me, “I know these wells. I have studied them all. Their blueprints were given to me in my engineering class. I know how these wells worked and how they were designed to never stop gushing, but someone has tampered with them and their Dunamis Seal has dried and cracked. They cannot hold the correct level of pressure any longer.”


FULTON STREET WELL


Dutch pulled a handkerchief from his right rear pants pocket. As we walked up to one of the wells deep into the field, an old well, he began to wipe off an engraved plate on it. As he was doing so, he began to read from the engraved plate. I could see Dutch’s facial expression begin to change. It was one of excitement, yet also mixed with sadness. This engraved plate read, “Fulton Street Well.” Right under it was written “Dutch, don’t throw in the towel! Prime me with mayim.”


I could see that Dutch was taken back by this. His countenance changed into one that revealed intense thinking and consideration. Dutch turned to me and said, “Give it to me! IT’S TIME!” (As he said this we could see an angel approaching us from the distance.) I reached into a bag I was carrying over my shoulder, pulled out a small bottle, shaped like a lion’s head, labeled “MAYIM FOR PRIMING.”


I gave it to Dutch. He poured it over the primer seal of the well that was now dry-rotted. I remember thinking to myself in the dream, “This is not the way you prime a pump. You have to pour it in the primer.”


Dutch then turned to me and said, “By the way, you don’t prime a well of revival the same way you try to maintain religion. Revival is in the seal. It creates the natural pressure that causes a gusher!”


Instantly, the pump mechanism on the well began to move. It groaned deeply as it did so, like an old engine that has not been turned over in years does when one tries to start it. We could hear the water beginning to make its way up the pipe that was in the ground. Dutch said to me, “THIS IS IT! IT’S HAPPENING!”

TENNENT’S WELL


We ran to another well. Again Dutch began rubbing the engraved plate with his handkerchief to wipe away the years of accumulated grime. The plate read, “Tennent’s Well of Fire.” Inscribed underneath this was, “Ministers Must be Born Again!” (We could still hear the rumbling of the Fulton Street Well! It was getting louder and louder.)


Gabriel, the Archangel, stepped out from behind this well as Dutch and I were pondering its design and said to us, “If you prime this well you will make many enemies among the religious. But, if you do prime this well, many will catch fire!”


Dutch looked at me, turned and looked at Gabriel, then once more turned and looked at me. He then said, “To hell with the consequences! We are priming this well! Hood, give me the other bottle.”


I reached into my bag and pulled from it another bottle. This bottle was oil, labeled “Hebrews 1:7.” [”And regarding the angels He says, ‘He makes His angels winds, And His ministers a flame of fire.’”]


I handed it to Dutch. He took the cork out of the bottle and began pouring the oil into a hole in the side of the well. This hole looked like a spout where you would put gas into your car. It had a sticker on it that said, “oil reservoir.” We could hear the oil Dutch was pouring from the bottle hitting the bottom of the reservoir. It had been completely empty! Dutch kept pouring from the bottle till the reservoir was full and overflowed.


Gabriel said to Dutch, “Ignite it!” Hearing this, Dutch took a step forward toward the well and shouted at it with a voice of authority, “FIVE-FOLD, BE BAPTIZED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND FIRE!” As soon as he declared this, the Tennent Well shot a flame of fire out the top of it that seemed to reach the sky.


As this well started to burn, people began running to it with pieces of wood in their hands, which they ignited with the fire coming from the well. As soon as their wood was lit they would turn and run away from the well, carrying the fire back to where they came from. I knew in the dream that the wood they brought to the burning well was wood from their pulpits, which they had broken up.

HAYSTACK WELL

Gabriel then said to us, “There are other wells that need your attention. Go to the next well.” We ran to the next well. Dutch did as he did with the two previous wells, rubbing the engraved plate to clean it. He began reading aloud what was inscribed there. It read, “Haystack Well.” Underneath that was inscribed, “From these shores to the shores of nations the gospel of the kingdom shall go.”

As Dutch finished reading this engraved plate, a man by the name of Hudson appeared from the side of the Haystack Well. He said to us, “The nations are weeping, crying out for relief from the slavery of religion which the church created. Send them the help they need.”

Gabriel spoke to Dutch and said, “Call the intercessors. Surround the well. Release the well.”

I said to Dutch, “Here, take this.” I handed him a bugle from my bag. He brought it to his lips and began playing the “fatigue call.” ["Fatigue Call" is a military bugle call that signals all designated personnel to report for “fatigue duty,” which is the labor assigned to soldiers that do not require the use of armament.]

As he sounded this call, members of the election team intercessors [This is the group of leaders I took to 9 cities to pray over the elections] began appearing around the well. Dutch said to a member of the team, “Pray this into the well.” To another, he said, “Declare this into the well.” To others, “Prophesy into the well!” And so on.

As each did what they were instructed to do, a large door opened on the side of the well and thousands of people began coming up out of the well. Each one had 2 flags around their shoulders, an American flag and the flag of another nation, and was carrying an Appeal to Heaven flag on a pole.

CANE RIDGE WELL

We were not allowed to stand around and watch. Gabriel said, “To the next well!”

We quickly moved to the next well. It seemed to be a ways from us. As we made our way there we could see trickles of water beginning to drip from different parts of the well. This time Dutch did not use his handkerchief to clean it; he used his hand. As he wiped away some muddy water seeping from the well and running over the engraved plate he said, “This water is hot; it’s the Cane Ridge Well. The plate reads, ‘Be ready, this well erupts often! It’s on a timer!’”

Gabriel said to Dutch, “Speak the timing of the Lord over this well. Speak it now! The time is NOW!” (The rumbling of the Fulton Street Prayer Well was getting louder by the second. It was so intense we could feel the ground shaking!) Dutch took a step forward, climbed the well, and from its top began declaring, “THIS IS THE TIMING OF THE LORD! THIS IS THE GREAT RELEASE OF HIS PROMISED OUTPOURING! AMERICA, RECEIVE YOUR GIFT! AMERICA, SHIFT! AMERICA, AWAKEN FROM YOUR SLEEP, FOR NOW, YOUR SALVATION IS HERE!”

THE WELLS MIX

As Dutch declared this from the Cane Ridge Well, it began to swell as it filled with water, ready to burst into a geyser. Dutch jumped from the Cane Ridge Well and as soon as his feet hit the ground the Fulton Street Well erupted, shaking the earth so much that it caused the Cane Ridge Well to erupt, sending its water high in the air. The erupting water from these two wells began coming together to the point that we could not tell which was water from the Fulton Street Well and which was from the Cane Ridge Well. As it shot into the sky the water ignited the clouds over America and fires of awakening begin to fall all over the nation.

Gabriel leaned into Dutch and said, “Now, steward the rain!”
