Facing the Fever

In a dream vision, the Holy Spirit took me to a public place that looked like a department store. I assumed I was in America, because people spoke in English, but I could have been elsewhere. Immediately, I saw a scene that caught my attention. A young black boy, who looked around 10-13 years old, lay on his back on the floor of the store. He was listless and shaking with fever. His mother was from Africa and spoke with an accent when she said, “I know this fever. Where we come from we have this fever.” She did not appear overwhelmed with worry. The boy had been in the peak of health and would get through it. I offered to call an ambulance, and she declined. Then I noticed the older brother of the boy on the floor. He was falling sick too.
We found a place away from the selling floor to put the sick young men. In a storeroom, we found large couch cushions for outdoor patio furniture, and placed the young men on them. With no medical help near, I looked over one of the young men to see what I could do. He was radiating such heat that my hands could feel it almost a foot away. This fever was too high—104 degrees Fahrenheit at least, and probably higher! I started to pray over him. I reached out with my hands and the Holy Spirit instructed me to place them over his mid-section. The Holy Spirit directed me to pray for protection and restoration of his organs—his liver, his pancreas, his kidneys, and more. His vital organs were under attack and they could fail, causing his death. Just as I thought of casting out the spirit of death from the young man, I lifted my hands and looked at them. They did not look like my white woman’s hands, but the hands of a mixed-race person, possibly a man’s.
I awoke from the dream vision, aware of the horrible impact of this plague on the human body. I asked the Holy Spirit to help me interpret the dream vision. These are the messages that came to my mind. The plague will appear to come from Africa and affect those of African descent. The plague’s virulence will be underestimated because it will at first resemble a known and less lethal fever. People will not seek medical care early enough. Many of the sick will not have medical care available to them. People will need to resort to healing prayer and step up in this kind of godly service. God will activate and send healing prayer warriors within all peoples, taking away their fear and emboldening them, to bring the Holy Spirit and his gift of healing to others in desperate need across the world.
Exodus 15:26 NIV
26 He said, “If you listen carefully to the Lord your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, who heals you.”
Exodus 23:25-26 NIV
25 Worship the Lord your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you, 26 and none will miscarry or be barren in your land. I will give you a full life span.

2 Lord my God, I called to you for help,
and you healed me.
3 You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
you spared me from going down to the pit.
Isaiah 53:4-5 NIV
4 Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
Matthew 10:7-8 NIV
7 As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.
Luke 4:38-39 NIV
38 Jesus left the synagogue and went to the home of Simon. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked Jesus to help her. 39 So he bent over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. She got up at once and began to wait on them.
John 14:12-14 NIV
12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
Romans 8:11 NIV
11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.
James 5:14-16 NIV
14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. 16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
