They Were Looking For Food

 

 

This is a dream that one of my younger children had,
About two months after the BP oil spill in the Gulf.
I have written it here, as it was described to me…

 
It is the Holly Days season again,
sometime in December.
I couldn’t tell what year it was,
But I sensed it was somewhere in America.

At first, it seemed like the usual Christmas holiday season
that rolls around every year,
with the holiday music blaring out their repeated tunes,
and the television adds pushing products
with the usual consumer commercialism,
but then I realized that something was very different.
There were still many shoppers out and about,
trying to find that perfect present for the people on their list,
but this year, THEY WERE LOOKING FOR FOOD. 

Yes, there was a few of the usual presents
that people usually give out to each other under the tinseled fir tree,
like toys for toddlers or the other usual pre-wrapped or boxed items,
but for the most part, (eighty percent?,) were hoping to buy special food.

Whatever they thought that person on their list would like to eat,
THAT was their purchase of choice.
It was whatever that person’s special favorite food was.

It didn’t matter if it was caviar, shrimp, or fillet minion,
or something as simple as macaroni and cheese;
whatever it took to make that person’s favorite dish,
that is what was being shopped for.

But they weren’t always finding it.

At first the items became more expensive,
In some cases prohibitively so, 
but then towards the end, they were almost impossible to find at any price.

Those that had the foods, didn’t want to sell them no matter what was offered,
for they were beginning to realize that all food was becoming more scarce,
and that they may need it themselves for survival.

The dream then formed like a movie clip,
with the camera focusing in on one random family all gathered together
eating their special holiday meals around the dining room table.
The younger members of the family were thankful
for the special foods that they had been given,
digging in with gusto and enjoying every bite,
but some of the older members of the family were still sad,
for they could still remember what previous holidays had been like,
and they had hoped to come closer to reliving them again.

The view then panned back out and the dream ended.

  1. Good morning. This is a gentle reminder of four things. First; to be thankful for sustainance. (Having food and reignment let us be therewith content) Second; that a time is approaching wherein that which has always been taken for granted will become scarce. People not wanting to part with the provision in their hand at any price reveals a future world that few of us can grasp at te present. Third; To remain in a proper place with the Lord who can sustain us in any situation. And fourth; to have our affections in heavenly places. This is pivotal because when the days of plenty are concluded, those who do not have an eternal perspective will go nutty.

    It’s interesting that the setting is around the holiday season; a time when many launch out into a full-throttle acquisition frenzy. We’ve all seen the reports of retailers opening their doors at midnight following thanksgiving and shoppers flying through the doors to appease their lusts. Last year, we actually visited a retailer at midnight for the first time, in responce to a particular bargain. I will never do it again, however, it was an eye-opening experience. As I watched people going nuts; even to the point that the police had to intervene, I saw a population that’s ripe for judgment. This unabridged lusting for stuff cannot stand long term.

    Every year if becomes more intense than the year before and at some point, the bottom will fall out. Interestingly, II Chrinicles 36:21 just came to mind, where it reads “Until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths.” The primary difference now, however, is that this creation is going to groan, travail, and eventually enter into a time of upheaval like no other season……leading up to the return of Jesus.

    Sorry for rambling. Thanks for sharing this dream. Without a doubt, it ha significance; lining up with scripture and lining up with what others are reporting. Blessings always in Jesus name.

    • Hi Timbob,

      Interesting insights; so please don’t apologise!

      I’ve gone to those midnight door-buster events too, and found that in the end, it’s just not worth it. I’ve gone to ones in the city which were truly horrendous, and to one in the country, which although seemingly more organized, was still chaotic. I have since given up going to them.

      I’m glad you found the post worth sharing. I struggled in posting these last three posts, because I’ve seen them as being more serious and heavy than what I usually post. But He was most insistant that I post them now. Like I said in my other comment, I pray that people will turn to HIm and rely solely on Him when these things come upon the earth. (Maybe that prayer should be changed; after all, why wait till then?!)

      Thanks for taking the time to comment, and Blessings to you as well,
      C. Dunamis

  2. The child who had this dream, has had many dreams and visions that have come true. This child predicted Obama’s presidential win, Haiti’s earthquake, and Japan’s tsunami, just to name a few. There have been ones of a more personal nature that have come true, that applied mostly to our family and friends. Some have been warnings, and others unchangingly inevitable. This was the first time however, where both a time/season and a place was shown with an event.

    The previous two posts have shown what could happen when one puts their faith in man, and what could happen when one puts their faith in God.
    I pray that when these things start forming upon the land, people will wake up, turn their hearts to Jesus, and rely solely on Him. The following are some scriptures that The Lord shared with me on this…

    “Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”

    “They (upright men) shall not be confounded in the perilous time, and in the days of famine they shall have enough.”

    “Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand. I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.”

    “But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord: he is their strength in the time of trouble. And the Lord shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.”

    Psalm 37:1-4 KJV. Psalm 37:19 1599 Geneva Bible. Psalm 37:24-25,39-40 KJV.

  3. We, here, have been preparing to move having been confirmed that we need to be ready at a moments notice. We don’t know how and where (my wife’s job is a pretty important factor) but we have been getting hints of a 1 1/2 acre garden, chickens and goats, a woods, while still lacking any indication of an income or how this move will be facilitated ( purchase price, selling the current house). But we, too, have felt that civil war is coming and food will be at best a premium, but God is preparing us to be facilitators of His blessings, not profiteers.

    An interesting ride is coming our way….all of us…..

  4. Reblogged this on godsfingers and commented:
    Similar impressions, the scarcity of food, have been coming our way. The result, of cataclysm or civil war I don’t know but it does bear paying attention to.

  5. Dunamis: I would really like to read some of the dreams and visions that your child had about Obama’s presidential win, Haiti’s earthquake, and Japan’s tsunami.

  6. Have “felt” this coming for years, been trying to prepare for last 2-3 yrs. Trying to get adult children to understand, be ready to come home when it starts. They think I’m crazy, but I pray for them nightly and have to trust God to do the rest. God bless and PREPARE! If Jesus comes and takes us home, I pray the “right”people will find our supplies and be pointed to Christ.

  7. good to share these 3 dreams, after all it’s also shown in verse, day’s wages for a quart of wheat(for trib times and for area’s hard hit by crop failures coming before trib times also coupled with a devaluing currency) but beginnings of sorrows or birth pangs also say’s wars, and rumors of wars, famine and earthquakes in various places. Beginning stages of the later hard times like no other. We see the wars and rumors and an increase of the 5.0 and greater earthquakes but not much increase in famine (not more drastically noticeable) ..yet, so expect it as shown in the gospels.

    I also don’t think we’ll continue to sort of skate or be fairly unaffected by such droughts/famines anymore as we’ve become just like all the other countries. Also in terms of the verses things are a judgement on the world and we both feed ourselves and have enough to export, so a famine/scarcity here would effect many elsewhere as well and be a sign for those with ears to hear. I’ve sort of been looking for the increase in famine, seeing the increase in wars etc and earthquakes been expecting to see more famine in various places.

    Recently read another dream one had about a series of earthquakes in the US and a growing and larger scale drought. Travel restrictions due to earthquakes and food scarcity. In many of your dreams you’ve seen travel restrictions, also “storms”, also “waves” which to me can mean man made “storms”/hardships/currency collapses and other things also, and waves we see now, the troubles over then the next month it’s back and worse just like waves, the next bigger then the 1st and so on. Martial law would be enacted if large scale earthquakes, and/or economic collapse, coupled with ongoing and increasing droughts…anyway I expect we’ll see all of that, and worse after.

    Yet rejoice, many will be saved, and each day and each fulfillment brings us closer to our Lords return. We can also study and know that many have gone this road before us, the early church and the prophets before them slept in caves and holes and were hungry sometimes and more, yet had great joy, our strength in Him. Hebrews 10 and 11 sum some of their times up.

    Yep, Rejoice and fix our minds on things above and the Lord will provide all our needs according to His plans for each.

    as things of the world fail many are broken and see trust/hope in the world is a lie and wake up, which is the best thing and suffering is short time compared to eternity.

  9. Hey Dreams,
    I sensed an urge to post this to your blog and to your readers.
    To the Body of Christ,

    I’ve been praying for most of this morning and sensed an urge to warn you all to pray, stay in the Holy Spirit and pay attention to your surroundings and to ANY check you have in your spirit.

    If you so much as have a check to “not” go to work, school, the store, church, down the street, or to stop and stay stopped at a stop sign for longer than you usually would, anything–pay attention! This is not a call to be paranoid. This is a call to draw closer to your FATHER who has your best interest at heart. Obedience is the word I keep hearing.

    Peace,

    Deirdre
