The Rogue Tide, Relocation, and Revival of Faith

In a dream vision, the Holy Spirit showed me an American woman who lived alone near the Atlantic Ocean, but not close to the shore. Suddenly, one night she was caught unawares by a strange rogue tide that flooded her house. She knew of no storm that would have explained the surge. In the darkness, she tried to grab her valuables and ID documents and put them in a waterproof bag. All she could do was wrap them inside a large black trash bag. Afraid of drowning in her house, she took a chance and waded into the water outside, looking for neighbors who might help her.
Soon a man, a welcome stranger, came by in a small boat and picked her up. He seemed to know a little about what was going on and why. He explained to her that a planetary body in space—he called it “Lucifer” because it was a Destroyer bent on the annihilation of the inhabitants of Earth—was affecting gravitational pull. It was as if the Earth had several moons pulling on it at once, and so the tides would wax and wane many times their regular height and depth.
Knowing that her home was doomed to be flooded repeatedly—with most all her property washed away—the woman prepared in her mind to accept her homeless state and to relocate as a refugee to higher ground inland. Her entire life, and the lives of all those near the coastline, had changed overnight. So many of her ties to the world had been broken within minutes. Yet she had to go forward, no longer of the world, but still in it. She now had to walk by her God-given gift of faith, which she had not fully exercised until this point, a faith that would strengthen with each step.
Job 38:4-11 (ESV)
4 “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell me, if you have understanding.
5 Who determined its measurements—surely you know!
Or who stretched the line upon it?
6 On what were its bases sunk,
or who laid its cornerstone,
7 when the morning stars sang together
and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
8 “Or who shut in the sea with doors
when it burst out from the womb,
9 when I made clouds its garment
and thick darkness its swaddling band,
10 and prescribed limits for it
and set bars and doors,
11 and said, ‘Thus far shall you come, and no farther,
and here shall your proud waves be stayed’?
Isaiah 43:2 (ESV)
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.
Ezekiel 26:19 (ESV)
For thus says the Lord God: When I make you a city laid waste, like the cities that are not inhabited, when I bring up the deep over you, and the great waters cover you…
Habakkuk 2:14 (ESV)
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
Luke 21:25 (ESV)
And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves.
Jude 1:13 (ESV)
Wild waves of the sea, casting up the foam of their own shame; wandering stars, for whom the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved forever.
Revelation 20:13 (ESV)
And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done.
