3 Psalms of Desolation

In this dream I was formatting a psalm in Chinese. Near the beginning was 2 words in bold. I only remember the first word was 荒, which could mean shortage, famine, desolate, wilderness, wasteland, ruins. There are other possible meanings, but my impression was it had to do with desolation.

I had trouble formatting the psalm because I couldn’t tell whether the 2 words belonged with the words before it or after it. Then I had the same problem with the next 2 psalms.

As I was waking up, I saw the correct format presented in a simple picture frame. The 2 words didn’t belong with the words before or after, but was on its own line, centered and in a big, bold font. Then I realized that was the theme of the 3 psalms.

After I got up, I searched for psalms with the word 荒 near the beginning, and found these:

Psalm 79:1 (ESV)
O God, the nations have come into your inheritance; they have defiled your holy temple; they have laid Jerusalem in ruins (荒堆).

Psalm 74:3 (ESV)
Direct your steps to the perpetual ruins (荒涼); the enemy has destroyed everything in the sanctuary!

Psalm 107:4 (ESV)
Some wandered in desert wastes (荒地), finding no way to a city to dwell in.

Psalm 102:6 (ESV)
I am like a desert owl of the wilderness, like an owl of the waste places (荒場).

The 3 psalms in the dream may mean 荒 or desolation is a certainty. I think it likely means 3 years, because last year the Lord gave me dreams about 3 years of 荒 in Canada, and about Canada being laid waste.

Canada is Laid Waste

We have sinned greatly against the Lord, rebelling against Him and getting worse and worse. As if that wasn’t enough, stumbling blocks are systematically put in front of children to corrupt them and lead them to sin. The whole country needs to repent just as Nineveh did in Jonah 3:5-10, but don’t sit there and wait for that to happen. We as individuals should repent and stop sinning now! Please do your part in society and stop taking orders that are sinful in the eyes of God, stop putting stumbling blocks in front of others, stop leading or enticing others to sin, stop enabling the wicked and the evil, stop perverting justice, be merciful to the needy, and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit at all times.

If you haven’t received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you need to know that Jesus is the only way, there’s no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). Jesus paid the penalty of our sins on the cross for us, but if you reject Him, you’ll have to pay for it yourself, to be tormented for all of eternity in the lake of fire. There’s no rest there, no break from the suffering, and no way out.

For those who already believe in Jesus, we also need to repent and stay repentent, and to walk in His light. If we confess our sins, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ will forgive us:

1 John 1:7-9 (ESV)
7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
