The Car Replaced by a Bicycle

In a dream vision, I was driving down a country road at night and approaching a curve. When I reached the curve, I placed my foot on the brake, but the car didn’t respond in the expected way and did not slow down enough. The bend ahead seemed darker than usual, and it was the moon’s light that dimly lit the gravel road ahead. My car’s headlights did not shine the way they normally did. As I went through the curve, I tried to keep control of the car, but the steering wheel seemed heavier as if my car no longer had power steering. I did not lose full control of the car, but my left front tire slipped into a roadside ditch, and the car came to a hard stop.
Realizing I needed assistance, I looked for a farmhouse nearby with some lights on indicating people were there. I walked up to the door of a farmhouse and was greeted by a woman. I saw others and a man with a beard in the background. Quickly, I realized that these people were Christian homesteaders similar to the Mennonites. They were God fearing, close to the land, and resourceful both with and without technology. They offered to help me and go look at my car to see what could be done.
When together we reached the site of my car accident, strangely, my car was nowhere to be found. Instead, right where the car had been lay a bicycle—a simple old-fashioned touring bike with no more than five gears but with handy baskets astride the back. Mysteriously, my car had been replaced with a bicycle!
When I awoke from this dream vision, I saw how the car’s failing power and slipping into the ditch represented America’s loss of power and direction. I also felt the strong urging of the Holy Spirit to purchase a bicycle—not a mountain bike or a racing bike, but a simple and practical touring bike with baskets for carrying groceries. He was warning me—and through me, others—to prepare for the time when our ability to transport ourselves by cars will be severely limited, whether by gas shortages, lockdowns, bank “holidays”, grid-down situations, or EMP blasts. The Holy Spirit also showed me a flash vision of China not too long ago in the past, when the majority of the population used bicycles for daily transport, hundreds of millions of them!
So, as we continue further into the time of God’s judgement upon our nation and the world, continue to repent and bring others to repentance and knowledge of the Gospel. And get your bicycles—and spare bicycle parts—now while you can find them!
Nehemiah 9:29-37 NIV
29 “You warned them in order to turn them back to your law, but they became arrogant and disobeyed your commands. They sinned against your ordinances, of which you said, ‘The person who obeys them will live by them.’ Stubbornly they turned their backs on you, became stiff-necked and refused to listen. 30 For many years you were patient with them. By your Spirit you warned them through your prophets. Yet they paid no attention, so you gave them into the hands of the neighboring peoples. 31 But in your great mercy you did not put an end to them or abandon them, for you are a gracious and merciful God.
32 “Now therefore, our God, the great God, mighty and awesome, who keeps his covenant of love, do not let all this hardship seem trifling in your eyes—the hardship that has come on us, on our kings and leaders, on our priests and prophets, on our ancestors and all your people, from the days of the kings of Assyria until today. 33 In all that has happened to us, you have remained righteous; you have acted faithfully, while we acted wickedly. 34 Our kings, our leaders, our priests and our ancestors did not follow your law; they did not pay attention to your commands or the statutes you warned them to keep. 35 Even while they were in their kingdom, enjoying your great goodness to them in the spacious and fertile land you gave them, they did not serve you or turn from their evil ways.
36 “But see, we are slaves today, slaves in the land you gave our ancestors so they could eat its fruit and the other good things it produces. 37 Because of our sins, its abundant harvest goes to the kings you have placed over us. They rule over our bodies and our cattle as they please. We are in great distress.
Psalm 37:5-6 NIV
5 Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this:
6 He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
your vindication like the noonday sun.
Psalm 119: 67 NIV
67 Before I was afflicted I went astray,
but now I obey your word.
Psalm 119:105 NIV
Your word is a lamp for my feet,
a light on my path.
Micah 5:10-15 NIV
10 “In that day,” declares the Lord,
“I will destroy your horses from among you
and demolish your chariots.
11 I will destroy the cities of your land
and tear down all your strongholds.
12 I will destroy your witchcraft
and you will no longer cast spells.
13 I will destroy your idols
and your sacred stones from among you;
you will no longer bow down
to the work of your hands.
14 I will uproot from among you your Asherah poles
when I demolish your cities.
15 I will take vengeance in anger and wrath
on the nations that have not obeyed me.”
John 8:12 NIV
12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
