DREAM – TSUNAMI

by Gale Maiden, June 2007

I was walking northward up a steep pasture field in an area of northwest Wilkes County, North Carolina in the Jobs Cabin Township . This location lies approximately 10 miles northwest of my home in Moravian Falls , North Carolina .

I turned to look back south by southeast towards Moravian Falls and saw a giant massive mountain of water moving towards me at a very high speed. There were individual breaking waves extending hundreds of feet into the air. This scene reminded me of a giant dam suddenly bursting and releasing instantaneously a giant wall of water. This scene was similar to the tsunami wave which recently struck Asia only this wave was many times larger.

I turned back northwestwardly and began running up the steep pasture field toward the mountain top. I was caught by the wave and moved up the hill at an amazing speed. As I was being taken to higher ground, I saw a metal gate and fence ahead. I did not have time to mentally assess how I was going to survive hitting this metal gate. Instantly the flood wave pushed me under the gate safely and I found myself standing above the gate on the mountain top. The flood waves then disappeared.

I began to ponder the consequences of this horrific mountain of water and flood. From my mountain top vantage point I could see all of Wilkes County . It appeared as a giant bowl surrounded by high places and mountain tops. None of the high places had been affected by the flood wave.

As I then looked eastward and clockwise around Wilkes County , I saw a ring of massive amounts of debris encircling the whole of Wilkes County . This debris was lying along the high flood mark or elevation of the wave. It resembled any debris ridden pond or lake shore except that it seemed as though everything in Wilkes County had been washed up to the high contour of the flood wave. There were automobiles, furniture, homes, boats, etc. every kind of possession known to man.

I thought, “Could anyone have survived this flood?”

Suddenly I saw movement in the debris. I saw a man's head appear out of the rubble. He was alive. This man moved in slow motion as I then watched his arms and body fully rise up out of the debris.

I then allowed my eyes to again follow the circle of debris all around Wilkes County . Suddenly all along the debris line, thousands of people began to arise out of the rubble. I knew in my spirit that not one person had perished in the flood but that all had survived.

All of these survivors appeared stunned, awe stricken and traumatized. I saw people begin to communicate as they exited the debris. I sensed strongly that families were joyously being reunited along with neighbors and other peoples.

I sensed a great need to embrace these people in order to somehow bring peace in this moment of trauma.

I next saw the first of many homes which had been built above the flood line contour. These homes were all the same in appearance and were encompassing all of Wilkes County . All of the homes were two story farm house types. The thing that I noticed was that each home was built perfectly square having the same width, depth and height. There were no porches or any type of add on structures to these houses. They were simply square and had only windows and doors. From a three-dimensional view, I could see eight windows and only one door. From a distance looking at the first home, I could see what I knew to be a family. There was a Dad, Mom and children going about the business of life and its daily chores. There was a real sense of peace over this home and family.

I immediately ran to the first home and passionately encouraged the family to begin ministering to the needs of those traumatized by the flood. There was no resistance from the family living in the house. On the contrary the family went out to meet the influx of people coming toward the mountain top home and escorted them into their home. It was as though the mountain top family was expecting these traumatized people.

I then began to run from top of mountain to top of mountain finding identical homes shouting and encouraging each home to minister and meet the needs of those coming out of the flood.

This dream seemed as though it lasted all night. I recall waking and then going back to sleep only to continue running from mountain top to mountain top stirring families to minister to the traumatized. When I finally awakened the task was not finished.

END OF DREAM

INTRODUCTION

As I will explain, I believe that this dream is a declaration and confirmation of God's heart to continue to pour out upon Wilkes County , North Carolina and the whole world a great flood of His presence. This tsunami of His presence has been set in motion by resident Holy Spirit empowered shakers and movers who have the Father's heart to shake and confirm proper foundations. We know that Jesus the Christ is the already laid foundation of the church. These shakers and movers are those temples of God in whom Jesus our Lord continues to be high and lifted up.

The earth of unregenerate flesh (Those not yet founded upon Jesus the Christ) is beginning to shake and there is now in motion a tsunami flood of His presence. This tsunami of His presence has and is now bringing about a spirit of holiness and purity leading unto resurrection (Romans 1:1-4).

I also believe that revealed within this dream is the simple yet profound strategy for the church to continue to implement the presence of the Kingdom of God . This simple implementation will continue to shake the earth's foundations producing a flood of the Holy Spirit presence of God. As you will see the essence and implementation of this strategic dream for Wilkes County and the world is so simple. I ask that all would prayerfully consider this dream.

God spoke to my heart to write this vision on my heart and run with it. I was told by the Spirit of God to not only share this dream with Christians but also with the non-Christian community. This dream is applicable not only for Wilkes County but for communities, towns, cities, counties, regions, states, nations and the world. Be of good courage.

DREAM EXPLAINED – WHAT CAUSED THE TSUNAMI?

As you will note the dream began with the appearance of the tsunami. I knew after the dream that I needed to research tsunamis. Much to my delight my research allowed me to clearly see a most vital part of the overall message of this dream. I discovered that tsunamis are caused by movements or shifts in the structure and foundation of various parts of the earth. Most tsunamis are caused by earthquakes.

I also then researched earthquakes throughout the Bible. In my study I encountered some most significant passages of scripture from the Old Testament concerning one particular earthquake and shaking. Immediately I knew that God had given me understanding as to the spiritual significance of the earthquake as it relates to the tsunami encountered in my dream. (When I use the term spiritual significance it always means that whatever is revealed and in discussion can be practically applied presently in the lives of people.)

There are three key areas of scripture relating to what I will refer to as “the earthquake” in this writing. There are three Old Covenant prophets who wrote about this common earthquake. Also equally important is the fact that all three prophets related (1) “the earthquake” to (2) the time of the reign of King Uzziah. Isaiah as a witness not only spoke of King Uzziah (particularly his death) and “the earthquake” which shook the posts of the temple, but witnessed that simultaneously (3) the Lord was seen in a vision as seated on His throne, high and lifted up, and His train filling the temple.

These three prophets are Amos, Isaiah and Zechariah.

THREE KEY WITNESSES TO “THE EARTHQUAKE”, KING UZZIAH AND THE LORD SITTING ON HIS THRONE

Witness One – Amos

The words of Amos, who was among the herdmen of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah , and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel, two years before the earthquake. And he said, The LORD will roar from Zion , and utter his voice from Jerusalem ; and the habitations of the shepherds shall mourn, ,and the top of Carmel shall wither. (Amos 1:1-2, KJV)

Witness Two - Isaiah

In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. And the posts of the door moved (earthquake) at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke (burning of incense). (Isa 6:1-4, parenthesis added, KJV)

Witness Three - Zechariah

And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee. (Zech 14:5)

Witness number one, the Prophet Amos, two years before what is referred to here as simply “the earthquake”, prophesied that the Lord would roar, and utter His voice from Jerusalem . This prophecy is dated by a particular event i.e. “the earthquake” to which this prophecy has its reference…that earthquake mentioned to have been in the days of Uzziah <Zech 14:5>, which again is of utmost importance.

From witness number two, Isaiah, we can ask the following question. Could this same earthquake spoken of by Amos have been “the earthquake” which shook the posts of the threshold of the temple at the time of the Prophet Isaiah's vision (See witness two <Isa 6:4>)?

The tradition of the Jews is that “the earthquake” happened when King Uzziah presumptuously invaded the priest's office and went in to burn incense <II Chr 26:16>. Whether conjecture or tradition, one can surmise by the witness of the Spirit that Isaiah's vision of the Lord, the death of King Uzziah and the “the earthquake” are all related. Properly relating these three things is vital in understanding and fulfilling the strategy of filling the earth with a tsunami of the glorious presence of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Without going into an in depth study of these scriptures I will explain that which I believe to be the all important significance of the Lord high and lifted up in the temple, Uzziah's death and “the earthquake”. It is these three events that are significant in understanding and practically implementing the essence of this tsunami centered dream. More particularly it is the cause and effect of these three events which are of utmost importance.

THE IMPORTANCE OF ISAIAH 6 TO THIS DREAM

In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple (Isa 6:1).

This scripture was opened up to me in a new way in 1991. My wife Kay and I were helping to plant a new church in western Virginia and this was a key word in establishing this new work. Specifically from this scripture I began to realize at that time a new emphasis on the fact that we are the temples of God. The Lord began to emphasize to me that it is when Jesus the Christ is seated in each believer's temple, in authority on the throne of our hearts…high and lifted up that certain spiritual dynamics are set in motion. (See a list and explanation of these spiritual dynamics below.)

It is not by coincidence that King Uzziah died the year in which the Lord was envisioned by Isaiah as sitting on His throne, high and lifted up. The evil and prideful spirit of King Uzziah is doomed to die when the Lord Jesus Christ is seated upon the throne of our hearts. Let me briefly explain the characteristics of the evil spirit which in King Uzziah's latter years compelled him to sin against the Lord and the Lord's people. (See 2 Chr 26:16-23)

The evil prideful spirit of Uzziah ultimately compelled him to act corruptly becoming unfaithful to the Lord. King Uzziah entered into the temple of the Lord and burned incense on the altar of incense.

But when he (King Uzziah) became strong, his heart was so proud that he acted corruptly, and he was unfaithful to the LORD his God, for he entered the temple of the LORD to burn incense on the altar of incense. (2 Chr 16:16, NAS)

This unfaithful act wrought the wrath of the faithful priests of God.

Then Azariah the priest entered after him and with him eighty priests of the LORD, valiant men. And they opposed Uzziah the king and said to him, "It is not for you, Uzziah, to burn incense to the LORD, but for the priests, the sons of Aaron who are consecrated to burn incense. Get out of the sanctuary, for you have been unfaithful, and will have no honor from the LORD God." (2 Chr 26:17, 18, NAS)

The key word here is faithfulness which is of course is the realm of having faith. Acts that are not of faith are sinful acts. Faith is simply the instruction from God for all that we are and do. Kings under the Old Covenant had no instruction from God to do anything in the temple of Lord . The priesthood of that time was called the Levitical priesthood.

God instructed (gave a word of faith to) the Levites, sons of Aaron only, to burn incense on the altar of God. Azariah the priest along with 80 priests of the Lord, valiant men, opposed King Uzziah and told him to leave the temple of God . They told him that he had been unfaithful and therefore would have no honor from God.

Practically speaking, King Uzziah was intruding into the priesthood ordained by God for the Old Covenant of Law. What are the implications of this intrusion? Simply that the faith ordained order of God for the worship and existence of His people had been sinfully violated. King Uzziah had been ordained by the order of God to be King of Judah. It is easy to see that when the order (faith) of God is violated, the presence of God is hindered and diminished and brings forth death.

As a result of King Uzziah sinfully intruding into the order for the lives of God's people, he became leprous and died.

But Uzziah, with a censer in his hand for burning incense, was enraged; and while he was enraged with the priests, the leprosy broke out on his forehead before the priests in the house of the LORD, beside the altar of incense. And Azariah the chief priest and all the priests looked at him, and behold, he {was} leprous on his forehead; and they hurried him out of there, and he himself also hastened to get out because the LORD had smitten him. And King Uzziah was a leper to the day of his death; and he lived in a separate house, being a leper, for he was cut off from the house of the LORD. And Jotham his son {was} over the king's house judging the people of the land. (2 Chr 16:19-21, NAS)

Leprosy is a type of sin. The wages of sin is death. If the madness of King Uzziah had been allowed to continue unabated, not only would he have eventually died but others affected by this sin would have also died. Again this evil prideful spirit of King Uzziah violates the order (faith) of God resulting in the absence of the God's presence thereby producing death in everyone.

IS THE SPIRIT OF UZZIAH ALIVE AND WORKING TODAY?

We as New Covenant believers know that we have been made priests through and by the once (on one occasion) and for all blood sacrifice of our High Priest Jesus (See Rev 1:6; 5:10; 20:6). Unlike the covenant order of the Old Covenant, our New Covenant through Jesus our High Priest grants total and free access into the presence of God. Again this is referred to as the New Covenant believer priesthood.

From the time of King Uzziah's prideful intrusion into the priesthood of God until now, this sin continues. I believe that the prophet Isaiah's vision of the Lord seated on His throne, high and lifted up, is a prophetic view of you and I as the filled and glorious temple(s) of God.

The evil spirit of Uzziah continues through pride to intrude and destroy the freedom of New Covenant believers to access the full presence of God. The presence of God is the tsunami flood envisioned in my dream. It is when the Lord Jesus Christ is seated in authority and lifted up high in you and I that the earth will shake releasing a tsunami of God's presence in the earth.

HOW IS THIS PRIDEFUL SPIRIT OF UZZIAH RECOGNIZED?

One of the three characteristics of all that is in the world is the pride of life. Pride has to do with wisdom. If I abide in a spirit of pride I am exalting my earthly sensuous wisdom above the wisdom of God. Again considering the sin of King Uzziah, in his pride or self wisdom thought himself wiser than God when he transgressed the wisdom of God's order of worship and service to God.

Recognizing all believers as priest unto God we must never usurp the right of access into the presence of God granted by God to all believers. This sin is reckoned today consistently as “leadership” imposes and intrudes into the priesthood of believers by foolishly dominating and corrupting the order and faith of God to worship. Pride or self wisdom being imposed on others negates the life and presence of God.

The role of true leadership is to lead saints and promote everyone into the presence of God. There is such an exodus presently from the “structured religious” environment of so called “church”. For the most part this type of environment has diminished our ology of Theo (theology). Our view of God will be enlarged as the sheep of God are promoted to do the Kingdom of God instead of continuing under prideful domination. The wisdom of God does not conquer and rule over people. On the contrary, the wisdom of God empowers saints to overcome.

This exodus as described I believe is the will of God. Why? Because the present “leadership” a great deal of the time is an imposed leadership demanding that without maturity saints are to believe all that is being imposed upon them. The irony is that it will be in this exodus from “religion” by which sheep will mature as true priests and only then will they truly know who is a leader. Is it any wonder that we are not being led into the presence of God?

This spirit is as much at work among the flocks as in ‘leadership”. Dominating fleshly personalities (hurting souls) are continuously attempting to steal your intimate relationship with God by imposing their ill-conceived identities on you.

The government of Jesus is ever increasing in the earth. As the spirit of Uzziah is put to death by our Lord Jesus Christ seated in authority and high and lifted up, the earth will continue to be shaken releasing a tsunami of God's presence into the earth.

The true apocalypse is now. We must realize that the apocalypse to be revered is the unveiling of the glorious church. We are not doom and gloom people but people who will take our faithful place as priests of God. II Thes 2 exhorts all to continue to gather into His presence so that the sins of men may be exposed and destroyed. The apostasy (departure) of the church into the presence of God is the only thing restraining the exposure and destruction of sin in men.

IN CONCLUSION

This dream is a vivid picture of the tsunami like flood of the presence of God which is purging and cleansing us from all “stuff” presently separating us from the presence of God. In the dream I was picked up by the flood of His presence and carried to the mountain top. There was a fence and locked gate symbolizing resistance to acquiring a mountain top existence with God. But the flood of His presence carried me safely through the fence and locked gate to the top of the mountain.

Once on top of the mountain I was able to see that the flood of His presence had deposited safely a multitude of traumatized people. They had been separated from all of their possessions. In fact, all of their possessions were damaged or destroyed. These people were traumatized by the love of God. Yes, love is traumatic and always requires a time of healing and instruction. Love trauma is circumcision of the heart. It is always traumatizing when that old part of you is cut away by the loving Spirit of God.

One clear Biblical example of this love trauma is when the children of Israel crossed the Jordan to Gilgal and were circumcised after forty years in the wilderness (Joshua 5). In Joshua' circumcision of Israel the reproach, guilt and shame of their fathers who perished in the wilderness was rolled away. Heart circumcision is an exchange of life. It is the Lord consuming your self life and replacing it with His life. God knew that heart surgery always requires healing and commanded them to spend time healing. Ultimately this trauma turned from healing to productivity and sensitive hearing ears leading to the presence of God in the possessing of the promised land of Caanan.

Knowing the need for immediate ministry to the traumatized people of Wilkes County seen in the dream, I ran to the established mountain top homes. These family oriented homes are symbolic of those who have a revelation of freedom in God's presence. These are they who because of having abided in the presence of God are able to bring healing and direction to those traumatized by God's presence. As noted in the dream, there exist such homes now which are doing this work as the tsunami flood continues to deposit saints at their doorstep.

I BESEECH YOU TO CONTINUE GATHERING INTO HIS PRESENCE

The revelation (apocalypse) of Jesus the Christ and His bride in union with Him is under way and accelerating. Most view the word apocalypse in a negative way. This word is used almost without exception in the New Testament with the revealing of the glory and the love of God. Therefore the body of Christ is the cataclysmic force shaking, exposing, revealing and destroying all sin in the earth. All that God wants to accomplish in the earth will expediently come to pass as we simply be who God has called us to be. His presence in us will shake, flood and heal.

SO WHAT IS THE SIMPLE STRATEGY TO BRING IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD AND THE END TO SIN?

The New Covenant believer priesthood fulfilling its individual measure of God given faith will overcome the sinful world systems. The apostle John wrote that this is the victory which overcomes the world…even our faith. Our faith is not produced in us by us but is given in measure by God. We are to have the faith of God.

The physical body is an excellent example of the simplicity of unity. Every component part is attached with one common denominator and that is the head. Every body part functions properly only by being properly attached to the head. In like manner, the members of the body of Christ work properly only when each member is attached to the head of the body…Jesus Christ.

It is individuality that brings unity. When is the last time you heard your right elbow ask your left shoulder about the activities of the day? Daily Kingdom of God existence is functional and profoundly effective as each member of the body of Christ hears and does his ongoing voice of instruction and faith as an individual part. The true New Covenant church functions in wholeness only as we acknowledge the faith of God measured to each individual. The Apostle Paul wrote that all division in the body of Christ is due to failure of its members to bestow honor or receptivity on the seemingly less honorable. This means that unity comes as we righteously acknowledge the presence of God in saints everywhere.

Jesus Christ is now high and lifted up and His train fills our temple. The government of Jesus is ever increasing in the earth. As a result, the earth is shaking and shifting producing a TSUNAMI of the Lord's presence. We together must continue to declare and walk in demonstration of the Lordship of Jesus the Christ and also declare that the prideful spirit of King Uzziah is dead and will never again control our hearts. It is the voice of God in and through His saints which will affect great salvation.

The Spirit of God recently gave another vision in which He said that ministries who do not promote and feed the sheep of God would lose their influence. In this vision, sheep were paralyzed and the pastures were trodden down. As a result there were breaches in the protective fence surrounding the sheep.

We are to rise up in the Spirit of God and become Apostolic Revival Centers who will lovingly encourage all of our Great Shepherd's sheep to fulfill their New Covenant believer priesthood.

Note:

Please feel free to email any comments or questions to office@fathersheartministry.com

I will soon be releasing other dreams and visions recently given concerning strategies for gathering into the presence of God.

In the exalted and strong name of Jesus,
