“‘Is not My word like a fire?’ says the Lord, ‘And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?’” (Jeremiah 23:29 NKJV)
Five days before we went to Cape Henry with the arrowheads, my friend Steven Springer - without knowing I was going there - had a dream about it. Steven is a prolific dreamer and a respected prophetic voice. The dream actually begins elsewhere, a place not delineated, then moves to Cape Henry. Here is the dream:
“On 8/15/23, I had a dream with Dutch Sheets, two prophets [Steven gives their names, but I have not asked their permission, so I am not including them], and myself.
“Dutch had a large hammer with which he was pounding altars, knocking them down. With each blow, darkness was displaced in a moment, and the light of truth began beaming in all directions! As the altars were destroyed, water began springing up from the ground, flowers began to bloom, and new life began to spread! We saw revival and awakening spring up everywhere the hammer struck the ground!!!!
“Then a ladder appeared, coming up from the ground, and a new dimension of Heaven came down the ladder to earth. This new dimension was a new anointing/ability/mantle to legislate, and it fell on Dutch and the Eklessia. With it, we began commanding gates to be opened. As we did, angels were dispatched in each direction, released by the decrees! Sunrise and sunset were occurring simultaneously!
“The scene changed, and we were standing on the shores of the Atlantic at Cape Henry, resurrecting the decrees made there by those who planted the cross of Christ. The earth began responding to this, releasing the sound of awakening!!!”
End of dream.
Steven then quoted two more passages of Scripture related to the dream, Job 22:28-30 and Isaiah 35:1-10:
“You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways. When they cast you down, and you say, ‘Exaltation will come!’ Then He will save the humble person. He will even deliver one who is not innocent; Yes, he will be delivered by the purity of your hands.” (Job 22:28-30 NKJV)
“The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, Even with joy and singing. The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, The excellence of Carmel and Sharon. They shall see the glory of the Lord, The excellency of our God. Strengthen the weak hands, And make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are fearful-hearted, ‘Be strong, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with vengeance, With the recompense of God; He will come and save you.’ Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then the lame shall leap like a deer, And the tongue of the dumb sing. For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, And streams in the desert. The parched ground shall become a pool, And the thirsty land springs of water; In the habitation of jackals, where each lay, There shall be grass with reeds and rushes. A highway shall be there, and a road, And it shall be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean shall not pass over it, But it shall be for others. Whoever walks the road, although a fool, Shall not go astray. No lion shall be there, Nor shall any ravenous beast go up on it; It shall not be found there. But the redeemed shall walk there, And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, And come to Zion with singing, With everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” (Isaiah 35:1-10 NKJV)
Just as the dream shows, idolatrous altars are definitely being destroyed in America. The hammer of God‘s word is doing exactly what He said it would do. We have been declaring His words, and they are accomplishing their assignments, tearing down altars of Baal, dispelling darkness, and releasing light. As Isaiah 35 describes, the desert land will again be fruitful: water, flowers, new life, revival, and awakening will come forth.
The next scene draws an obvious correlation to Genesis 28, where Jacob had a dramatic encounter with God at Bethel. There, and in the dream, a ladder connected heaven and earth, was used by angels, and gates were opened. Gates represent access points and portals, among other things. It’s a way of saying heaven and earth can connect. Jacob called Bethel a “gate of heaven”; the place in Steven’s dream was, as well. The angels brought us new anointings, and higher levels of authority with which to decree. We used these anointings immediately, making decrees that the angels carried forth into the earth.
I feel this is showing us that the Ekklesia has gone to a higher level in her ability to release Christ’s authority into the earth. We will see the fruit of that begin to manifest in this season. Like Jeremiah, our words, initiated by God, will “pull down” strongholds; they will then “plant” and “build” the will of God (Jeremiah 1:10). God will “watch over” these decrees to perform them (verse 12).
I find it very intriguing that sunrise and sunset were occurring simultaneously. There’s a brain-teaser. What might this represent? It could picture more, but I believe this is an indication that we are now aligned with Olam El, Everlasting God. This is the name Abraham used in Genesis 21:33 when he called upon Yahweh. “Everlast” was also one of two names on boxing gloves I used to knock out giants in a dream given several years ago. Holy Spirit said in that dream, “You must wear these 2 gloves to take out giants in this season.” (The other glove said “Evergreen.”)
Abraham used this name of God because it represented He who lives in the eternal now, not limited by time. Olam can reach back in time, and He can see into the future. He has the ability to cancel failures of the past, and secure the future, which he did for Abraham.
Perhaps God is saying He has done this for us, cleansing America of her past, and restoring us to our destiny. Perhaps He is saying we are now wearing the Olam glove, moving in the power and strength of Everlasting God. One thing is abundantly clear: Steven was seeing into a realm lived in and controlled by the eternal God!
Then, in the dream, we were translated to Cape Henry. There, we “resurrected” the decrees of Robert Hunt and his comrades - our foreword - when they planted the cross. We did this while there last Sunday, even using the same word, “resurrecting” the decrees and destiny spoken at Cape Henry. And in the dream, the earth responded with the sound of awakening.
Listen for this sound! You will begin to hear the sounds of revival, of awakening, of abundant rain - even in the shaking.
Pray with me:
Lord, we marvel at You and Your works. You truly are He who transcends time, reaching back to heal and cleanse, and looking forward to the end, declaring what is coming. With Your great power and ability as Olam, we will take out spiritual giants. America has been a wilderness place, a desert, for several years. But we declare over her that the altars of Baal are being demolished by the Ekklesia, light will replace the darkness, and she will blossom once again.
We thank You for the new mantles, the fresh anointing to legislate spiritually, and with which to accomplish Your purposes here and around the world. We confidently declare that the foreword has been resurrected, that the decree of Cape Henry is once again infusing life into our atmosphere and covenant into our land. The gospel of the Kingdom is now leavening our nation once again with the sound of revival.
We also confidently declare that You are rising over Your enemies in America. They will scatter before You, fleeing seven ways (i.e. completely). Their empowering altars are being demolished by the power of Your words; their dark wickedness is being exposed by light; their evil plans are failing; and their names will be disgraced in history.
We pray and decree all of this in Yeshua’s name!
We declare that the foreword of Cape Henry is alive and well!
