The Battering Ram
Dreams are fascinating, both when they originate in our own minds and when they are born of the spirit of God. Normal limitations of the natural realm do not exist in dreams. Perhaps you have dreamed that you were flying like Superman. I have. Maybe you have seen monsters or unusual creatures in your dreams. Not so good. For certain, dreams are susceptible to extraordinary happenings.
This ability to move outside the realm of natural laws is one of the reasons God chooses, at times, to speak through dreams. He can reveal things using unusual pictures and symbolic representations. He can also give us messages which do not have to be filtered through our natural reasoning. All dreams believed to have come from God must be judged by Scripture, of course. If they disagree with the Biblical teachings, we know they are not from God. However, dreams are a biblical method through which God speaks to His people.
A few weeks ago, Holy Spirit spoke to my brother, Tim Sheets, through a dream. The dream actually occurred as he slept on an airplane. It is quite profound. Here is his account:
“In the dream, I had gone to pray in Washington D.C. on July 4th. I've been there numerous times to pray. In the dream, I was in Lafayette Park, which is across the street from the White House. I have actually prayed there before in real life. But in the dream, I felt led to go to the spot where Dutch, Ken Malone, and I went 5 years ago (2016) to pray.”
[Tim pauses the dream account momentarily to give an explanation of what happened to us on that literal prayer journey in 2016.]
“Chuck Pierce had given us a golden vav, a stake, and prophecied, ‘Use this as a symbol. Go to Washington D.C., drive it into the ground, and decree that we are re-staking claim to America. God will show you where to place it.’”
Still recounting the literal prayer time in 2016, Tim continues, “We went to DC and were praying in front of the White House, in Lafayette Park. Of course, we wondered, ‘Is this where we should drive the stake?’ After praying, I said, ‘I don’t feel like we’re to do it here, guys.’
“Both Ken and Dutch agreed. However, Dutch responded by saying, ‘But I don’t feel we are finished with our assignment here.’
“I said, ‘Well, what else do you want to pray about? We’ve been praying for an hour.’
“Dutch responded, ‘Well, I don't know. Let’s pray about what to pray about!’ (Sometimes you just have to keep it simple!)”
Still recounting the literal prayer time in 2016, Tim continues, “We were being discreet as we prayed, and had backed up into the park somewhat, 50 yards or so from the crowd standing at the front fence of the White House. Ken prayed, ‘Lord, what else are we to decree here? What more would You like us to do?’
“Then we saw a guy coming towards us. As he got closer, I said, ‘Guys, that’s an angel!’
“He kept coming and didn't even really look our way. He simply walked by us, 2 or 3 feet away, and said six times: ‘Mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy.’ And then kept walking.
“Dutch said, ‘We gotta talk to him!’ We looked for him, but he was gone. Well, it didn’t take a genius to know what we were gonna pray. We started asking God for His mercy!”
[Tim now shifts back to describing his recent dream.]
“So, in this dream, I’m thinking, ‘I’m going to stand where that angel spoke to us.’ And I went to that spot. As I stood there praying (again, in the dream), looking at the White House, I saw a guy, maybe 100 yards or so away. He was carrying a tree trunk about a foot and a half in diameter and around 12 feet long! And I'm thinking in the dream, ‘He’s carrying a tree trunk! There's no way a human can carry a 12 feet long tree trunk. That can't be…he can’t be a human! This has to be an angel.’
“As he came closer and closer to me, I could see that it was, indeed, an angel. He was actually a very, very big angel with muscles rippling all over, and he carried the log under one arm as he approached. Stopping directly in front of me, he stood still, staring at me.
“In the dream, I finally asked the obvious, ‘Why are you carrying that tree trunk?’
“And he answered me in the language and demeanor of a soldier, which was very telling. ‘Sir, it’s not a tree trunk. It’s a battering ram.’
“Well, I said, ‘What are you going to do with it, soldier?’ I knew to call him ‘soldier’ because of the way he spoke.
“He responded, ‘There are four of us surrounding the White House. We’re here to break down Lucifer's barriers that protect Baal’s roots.’
“I said to him, ‘Well, why did you…why did you come and reveal that to me?’
“Then he said, ‘Sir, permission to proceed?’
“I responded, ‘Soldier, proceed.’” (End of dream)
After relating the dream, Tim stated, “Micheal and his angels will be releasing battering rams to unlock this nation.”
There is really no explanation needed for this dream. God is saying He is about to tear down satan‘s strongholds over Washington, D.C. This was confirmed to me yesterday by the following prophetic word given by my friend Chuck Pierce. Chuck said,
“We are in an era when God is strengthening us. It’s time to cut certain heads off of the enemy - we are in a ’headship’ war, determining who will rule and how they will rule. We are going through a time of realignment - even personally. We need guts of iron and backbones of steel…The enemy tries to get your soul so wounded that you can’t understand what is happening…
“Timing is key now - timing for DC. Everything between now and the end of July, for DC - is key. It can be turned the way the Lord wants it to be turned.”
His final statement is quite significant. DC can be turned the way the Lord wants it to be turned. And this month of July is key. For two leaders in the body of Christ to hear the same message, in different ways, is very important. July is a very strategic month. In Tim’s dream, he was in DC on July 4. (This was so real to him that he actually went to DC on the 4th to release - at the very spot in the dream - a decree for the angels to implement their battering rams.)
We must listen carefully and act on these words. I encourage prayer journeys to Washington DC this month. I also urge intercessors and prayer groups to pray into these words throughout the month of July. Pray that more exposure comes to evil in our nation. Pray that the barriers protecting Baal’s roots in America be demolished. “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations, and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10: 3-5; NASB). Let’s experience the breakthroughs God wants to bring us!
Pray with me:
Father, we thank You for giving us encouraging words and clear strategies through our great Helper, Holy Spirit. You have confirmed over and over the angel’s message in 2016. We received great mercy in that election. Donald Trump gave us three constitutionalist Supreme Court Justices, just as he promised he would, and now we have seen the curse of Roe broken off of us. Mercy, indeed.
And You sent another angel to that very same spot, in a dream, telling us it is time for Baal’s influence in America to be fully exposed and his hold over us broken. This confirms what we have already been hearing in the Spirit; You also have recently said this to prophetic leaders and intercessors. Release the battering rams now, we pray. Send Michael and his angels to tear down - to demolish - these strongholds through the prayers and decrees of Your Ekklesia.
And now, Father, awaken the praying church to the significance of the month of July. Impress upon them the importance of praying regarding this dream. Send teams into Washington DC. Send apostolic leaders and intercessors there. We will go confidently, knowing we have the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, with which we can bind the powers of darkness over America and release Your Kingdom will. We decree as our King instructed us: Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven! And we do this in the mighty name of King Jesus. Amen.
We will not stop praying and decreeing the will of God over America. We will be faithful watchmen.
