A FAMINE IN THE LAND

MY HIDING PLACE
Dream received on Dec.31/2022
I dreamt I was in Italy, in my hometown. I was with a friend – a woman I do not know in real life. We were walking along the streets when we came across this bakery I remember from childhood, that used to make these amazing snacks. I told this friend that we must stop at this bakery because I wanted her to try some. There was a bit of a line up, but we didn’t mind waiting. By the time it was our turn to be served, there was only 1 of those items left! We bought it with the intention of sharing it. I was so looking forward to this treat. But as I begin to eat it, I noticed it didn’t have the same taste I remembered from childhood. It was so disappointing. My friend didn’t enjoy it. Then the cashier pulled another, one that was a different flavour but also had a bite mark on it. She went on to carefully cut out the bite portion and then handed it to me asking me to break it and return the rest to her. As I took a bite out of this second one, at first impression it seemed to taste better than the first one. But as I chewed it further I began to taste this sour flavour in my mouth. It had gone rancid.
At this point in my dream, my hands were dirty so I wiped them off with a tissue and then asked the clerk if there was a trash can nearby. She pointed to one which seemed quite high off the ground nestled among food shelves. I threw my dirty napkin like a basketball, high up. But in the process I knocked over a couple of items off the shelves. Another clerk saw me and quickly came over. Her facial expression showing she was not impressed. I picked up the item that had fallen on the floor and told the woman not to worry, that I intended on purchasing it so she wouldn’t suffer the loss. I remember the one item was fruit -a very small bag of grapes. I asked the woman if the grapes were expensive and she sighed motioning that they were. She looked embarrassed to tell me the price. As she walked over to the cash register I started telling her, “Ma’am, I know that prices are high. I know exactly what’s going on after this ‘pandemic’ “. By that, I meant that I was aware how the wicked ones were purposely driving the prices up to starve people, such is the plan of Satan -to annihilate mankind.
As I stood there by the cash, I suddenly felt the Holy Spirit’s anointing come over me. So I closed my eyes and begin speaking to her all the words the Holy Spirit was giving me to tell her. The woman was shocked by my words and wondered how I knew all this and who I was. I told her I was a messenger of the Most High.
When I finished speaking to her, I caught a group of people nearby. The Holy Spirit urged me to go over there and minister to them as well. So I went and spoke under Father’s anointing once again. I sternly told them that they should stock up on food and water asap, and that if they ignored my warning they would greatly regret it. I told them that prices were going to increase that much more. I said, ‘imagine something that costs $1 going up to $300’. They looked at me in bewilderment but I insisted. I kept ministering to them not to waste any time, that they should stock up right away.
My heart was glad that these individuals welcomed the warnings and listened intently. That gave me such great joy!
The interpretation of this dream seems to be straight forward.
In the first portion of the dream, we see how there was low inventory in the bakery symbolizing food shortage. Not only that, but the clerk didn’t think it strange to offer the customer a bitten, stale product. This gave me the understanding that the store had reached such a drastic point that they could not afford to waste any food and that people would take it considering they had no other option.
This reminds me of the passage in Amos 8 where it says that even the sweepings were being sold with the wheat.
In the second half of the dream, we see how the prices of fruit had skyrocketed. Yet, the people I talked to seemed to be under the impression that it was a temporary inconvenience. When I told them that prices were going to jump to much higher levels, people were in shock.
I am thrilled when someone takes Father’s sobering warnings and adequately prepares. For famine is coming.
May those who have ears to hear, hear what the Spirit is saying in this hour. Please stock up on food items and water, if you haven’t done so already.
Following this dream, the Holy Spirit begin piecing different scriptures to me pertaining to famine.
Rev.6:5-6 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A MEASURE OF WHEAT FOR A PENNY, AND THREE MEASURES OF BARLEY FOR A PENNY; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
At the time when this seal is broken, it appears that one would have to work all day to obtain a small amount of ‘wheat’ or ‘barley’. The ‘fields’ will not be prosperous, but people will glean, just like Ruth, picking what will be left after the harvesters will have collected their portions.
The Word of Yah represents a field full of grain. Our job is to go out in that field EVERY DAY and reap our portion so we may feed ourselves spiritual food and store it in our hearts for the days of famine ahead. For there will come a time when our faith will be tested to its limit. Will we have enough of Yah’s Word written in our hearts to overcome? There will also come a time when the Word will not be readily available or accessible. Owning a physical copy will be forbidden; anyone caught copying, dispersing or sharing any biblical material will be charged with high treason and be severely punished. The Word that is coming to me right now is ‘INQUISITION’. Please research this. The Inquisition represents a grave time in history when anyone who did not agree with the beliefs promoted by the Catholic Church was considered a heretic. The punishments for heretics were anywhere between severe torture to death.
Brothers and sisters,
Please draw close to Father. Go into your secret place diligently and study hard. Repent daily and try your hardest to live a holy life. Don’t waste your time on the pleasures of the world for they’re surely going to vanish leaving you empty handed. Store for yourselves treasures that last through eternity.
Unfortunately, too many professing Christians nowadays are not taking Father’s Word seriously. Leisure reading does not count! Please take the time to really study the Word with the Holy Spirit so you may deepen your roots and understanding. For many will fail for lack of knowledge.
In Matthew 13, Yeshua ministers to us through the parable of the sower. In it, He teaches us about various types of grounds His Word may be planted on, though only one will produce an abundant crop for His glory. Here is the summary:
1. When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path.
2. The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.
3. The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful.
4. But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.
The Holy Spirit then reminded me of this Scripture.
Amos 8:11-12 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord: 12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.
When this spiritual famine hits, meaning when people realize how spiritually starved they are, they will attempt to dive into the Word to gather as much as they can. But a full day’s efforts will only get them leftovers, crumbs. The true prophets and priests will be silenced and the Word become scarce. People will have no choice but do their own digging. But it will come at a great cost. The time to draw near the Master and learn is NOW! The time to learn His voice and to build your intimacy with Him is NOW! If you wait until the days of ‘famine’ to do your harvesting, it will be extremely difficult to even reap tiny bits. Do not procrastinate.
The Word is not just for the understanding of pastors and prophets, but for everyone interested in getting ‘their hands dirty’. Again, if you wait until the time of ‘famine’ to do your digging, you will lack the appropriate time, and resources to do an efficient job.
Do not put off what you can do today. And don’t save sermons, teachings and prophecies to study at a later date. Know that you may not have tomorrow to do so. For tomorrow is not promised.
Finally, the Holy Spirit took me to the passage pertaining to the 10 virgins – 5 wise and 5 foolish. Note that when they heard the call to come out and meet the BrideGroom, that the 5 wise ones refused to share their oil with the other five. Their argument was that if they shared their oil, that they may very well not have enough for all of them to last until the arrival of the BrideGroom. Until that cry is heard, you still have time to go and purchase your oil. Do not delay. Don’t be that foolish virgin who is being counselled to go and purchase your own oil and didn’t listen. For once the BrideGroom arrives, the banquet door will be shut and you will be left weeping and wailing on the outside of it.
