The Soup Kitchens Had No Food to Serve

June 20, 2023 2:54 PM

In a dream vision, the Holy Spirit took me to a small building, and once I stood inside it, the building seemed to grow larger. As I walked further into the structure, I saw single-sized mattresses stacked in piles on sturdy shelving along a wall. I wondered if I was inside a homeless shelter, in the place where it kept supplies. Workers walked around me, but not the homeless people themselves, and they did not see me as I was invisible. The workers were diverse—most were not white—and I assumed this facility lay in a more urban area like Baltimore. I did not know what city at the time, but as I write this the Holy Spirit specifies Detroit.

Then suddenly, the scene shifted, and I was attending a meeting of workers affiliated with the shelter. I remained invisible and simply observed. Some of the workers sitting near me ran a soup kitchen. One worker, a Hispanic woman, stood up and complained to the group about how bad the food shortage had become. The soup kitchen no longer had enough food to give out to the hungry. “We only have enough food for the volunteers who are hungry,” she complained. “We don’t have enough food to give to the people we’re supposed to give the food to.”

When the dream vision ended, I realized that God was showing me how bad the coming food shortage would become in many cities. Even the soup kitchens would not receive enough food donations to feed the hungry masses!

and lack of bread in every town,
yet you have not returned to me,”

but did not get enough to drink,
yet you have not returned to me,”
declares the Lord.

11 “The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign Lord,
“when I will send a famine through the land—
not a famine of food or a thirst for water,

12 People will stagger from sea to sea
and wander from north to east,
searching for the word of the Lord,
but they will not find it.
