Your message burns in my heart and bones, and I cannot keep silent. (Jeremiah 20:9)
The testimony of JESUS is the spirit of the prophecy. (Revelation 19:10c)

Wave of Fire (Dream)
At 11:58 pm, on September 15, 2012 , I dreamed:
I saw a ridge (not a mountain) on the left side of my vision with a long valley or plain running to
the right of the ridge. There were trees at the end of the ridge, and the plain was filled with trees
as well.
At first, I was looking at it from a distance, but then, I saw behind the ridge and there was a wave
of fire the likes of which I have never seen before. It was like a huge, violent ocean wave crashing
on the shore; only it was a violent wave of fire. It was no small wave. The closest thing that it could
be likened to is a solar flare.
Then, this wave of fire came out from behind the ridge and proceeded very rapidly down the valley.
As it proceeded, I knew it was causing damage. I also knew there were people living in the valley
or on the plain and wondered if anyone got out before the wave hit. I sensed they did not. The
whole valley was overtaken by this violent wave of fire. At this point, I was standing on a plateau,
an elevated area of land some distance from the valley.
Then, the wave hit the end of the valley and exploded, propelling small black rocks into the air and
showering the area upon which I stood. The rocks looked somewhat like lava rocks. In the dream,
I could hear the rocks falling to the ground. None of them touched me and I felt in no danger.
This dream goes along with much of what the Lord has been revealing to me this year (2012) about the
impending judgment of the nations. In scripture, trees often depict nations. In particular, this matches
closely to a word received on July 31, 2012 : The fire of My word is coming.
On a purely physical level, the above could depict a volcanic eruption or, perhaps, a large meteorite or
asteroid crashing to earth. So, the question is whether or not this is a picture of a physical event or
something else—something more abstract or ethereal. Of course, one doesn't necessarily exclude the
other, meaning it could manifest as a physical event as well as something more ethereal that must be
interpreted figuratively or symbolically. On this latter point, scripture is filled with highly charged,
hyperbolic, poetic language that depicts great upheaval of the earth because of the Lord's presence.
Nahum and Jeremiah offer just two of many examples.
Yahweh is slow to anger, and great in vigor, and verily He will not make innocent. Yahweh has His
way in the sweeping whirlwind and in the horror, and a cloud is the dust of His feet ." He is rebuking
the sea, and is drying it, and all the streams He drains. ..." The mountains quake because of Him,
and the hills dissolve . The earth is upheaving because of His presence , and the habitance and all
dwelling in it ." Before His menace, who will stand? And who will rise in the heat of His anger? His
fury is poured forth as fire, and the rocks are broken down because of Him ." Yahweh is good for a
stronghold in the day of distress, and He is knowing those taking refuge in Him." (Nahum 1:3-7 CLV)
Wave of Fire
"For I have set My face against this city for harm and not for good," declares the LORD. "It will be
given into the hand of the king of Babylon and he will burn it with fire."' "Then say to the household
of the king of Judah, 'Hear the word of the LORD, O house of David, thus says the LORD: "Administer
justice every morning; and deliver the person who has been robbed from the power of his oppressor,
that My wrath may not go forth like fire and burn with none to extinguish it , because of the evil of
their deeds. "Behold, I am against you, O valley dweller, O rocky plain," declares the LORD, "You
men who say, 'Who will come down against us? Or who will enter into our habitations?' "But I will
punish you according to the results of your deeds," declares the LORD, "And I will kindle a fire in its
forest that it may devour all its environs ."'" (Jeremiah 21:10-14 NASB)
Obviously, much could be said about God's judgment of ancient nations, but it is the principle behind
these judgments that is most relevant today. Notice that when He presences Himself in judgment, fire is
poured forth and rocks are broken. Scripture contains many examples of God's judgment being likened to
fire. After all, our God is a consuming fire , and His word is likened to fire that destroys carnal flesh, even
dividing spirit and soul. God judges by His word, which is likened to fire that consumes, as well as a hammer
that shatters or breaks rock. Who is God's word? His Son, the word of God that was in the beginning with
God (John 1:1)!
For the LORD will execute judgment by fire and by His sword on all flesh , and those slain by the
LORD will be many. (Isaiah 66:16 NASB)
"Is not My word like fire?" declares the LORD, "and like a hammer which shatters a rock?"
(Jeremiah 23:29 NASB)
"Seek the LORD that you may live, or He will break forth like a fire , O house of Joseph, and it will
consume with none to quench it for Bethel…" (Amos 5:6 NASB)
For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword , and piercing as
far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and
intentions of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12 NASB)
And among the lamp stands was one like a son of man, clothed with a robe reaching down to his
feet, and with a golden sash around his chest. His head and his hair were white as white wool, like
snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire . His feet were like burnished brass, as if it had been refined
in a furnace. His voice was like the voice of many waters. He had seven stars in his right hand. Out
of his mouth proceeded a sharp two-edged sword . His face was like the sun shining at its brightest.
(Revelation 1:13-16 WEB)
The question is: If this dream signifies judgment of modern nations (or: a nation), what will it look like?
We'll know soon enough. One thing is for sure: the presence of King Jesus is coming. If in that day the
world-at-large doesn't physically see Him (a distinct possibility), it will definitely experience His presence,
whether through the crumbling of the structures (systems) of man or the literal shaking of earth or both
(most likely).
Could we not reword scripture to say: Is not My Son like fire, a hammer that shatters a rock? Will not My
Son break forth like fire? Will not My Son's fire be a piercing, two-edged sword? He is My consuming fire!
