In the early hours of June 8, 2023, around 3:00 am, I had a dream. I saw warriors seated at a round table planning strategy. I also saw a tree reaching through the clouds into the heavens. Immediately after seeing the warriors/Christians and other leaders sitting together, getting clear direction from the Lord, I knew there was Hope.
Isaiah 1:18 New King James Version (NKJV) admonishes us:
18 “Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord, ...
The tree I saw in my dream that was reaching into the Heavens was called THE TREE OF HOPE.
James 5:13-18 Living Bible (LB)
13 Is anyone among you suffering? He should keep on praying about it. And those who have reason to be thankful should continually be singing praises to the Lord. 14 Is anyone sick? He should call for the elders of the church and they should pray over him and pour a little oil upon him, calling on the Lord to heal him. 15 And their prayer, if offered in faith, will heal him, for the Lord will make him well; and if his sickness was caused by some sin, the Lord will forgive him. 16 Admit your faults to one another and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous man has great power and wonderful results. 17 Elijah was as completely human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for the next three and a half years! 18 Then he prayed again, this time that it would rain, and down it poured, and the grass turned green and the gardens began to grow again
This is the meaning of the dream: there is Hope if we work in Unity.
If church leaders will work together in unity as equals, respecting and forgiving one another as the round table represents, God will give us strategy for victory.
The key is Unity and Hope.
1 Timothy 6:12 International Standard Version (ISV)
12 Fight the good fight for the faith. Keep holding on to eternal life, to which you were called and about which you gave a good testimony in front of many witnesses.
Colossians 1:23 (ISV)
23 However, you must remain firmly established and steadfast in the faith, without being moved from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.
1 Thessalonians 5:8 (ISV)
8 But since we belong to the day, let’s be sober. We must put on the breastplate of faith and love, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.
Colossians 1:27 (ISV)
27 to whom God wanted to make known the glorious riches of this secret among the gentiles—which is the Messiah in you, our glorious hope.
Romans 5:3-5 (ISV)
3 Not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 endurance produces character, and character produces hope. 5 Now this hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
Romans 8:24-25 (NKJV)
24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.

Blessed Unity of the People of God
1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brethren to dwell together in unity!
Hope is the most important ingredient in a person’s life. Without hope, people fail in life. Without hope, people fail in faith.
When hope gives way to despair, they fail in their jobs, goals, and ambitions. When a person gives up hope, they die spiritually and physically.
Hebrews 11:1 King James Version (KJV)
1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
The Bible tells us that hope is part of faith. You must have hope to have faith.
So, hope is part of a person’s ability to choose. Hope becomes a personal responsibility to possess, maintain and keep.
Without hope, people perish! Hope is required to raise your children correctly.
Proverbs 19:18 (KJV)
18 Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying.
Because I hope my children will become God-fearing, responsible human beings, I will raise them according to the scriptural mandates.
Proverbs 22:6 (NKJV)
6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.
Medical Science tells us that when a patient or healthy person loses hope, he starts to deteriorate and dies. When a person loses hope emotionally, mentally or physically, he becomes ill. When a depressed person loses all hope, he wants to die and thinks of suicide.
Proverbs 13:12 (KJV)
12 Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.
IF WE LOSE HOPE, THE MISSION FAILS!
Nehemiah 2:17 (NKJV)
17 Then I said to them, “You see the distress that we are in, how Jerusalem lies waste, and its gates are burned with fire. Come and let us build the wall of Jerusalem, that we may no longer be a reproach.”
Other related scriptures pertaining to my message:
SIN has consequences whether in an individual, a government or a nation.
We see in the scriptures below that King Rehoboam’s apostasy caused the nation to sin with the direct result causing an Egyptian invasion. All the fortified cities fell except Jerusalem because the prophet of the Lord got in the face of the King and leaders of Judah. They repented of their sins, but there were still consequences.
2 Chronicles 12:1-12 (NKJV)
Egypt Attacks Judah
1 Now it came to pass, when Rehoboam had established the kingdom and had strengthened himself, that he forsook the law of the Lord, and all Israel along with him. 2 And it happened in the fifth year of King Rehoboam that Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem, because they had transgressed against the Lord, 3 with twelve hundred chariots, sixty thousand horsemen, and people without number who came with him out of Egypt—the Lubim and the Sukkiim and the Ethiopians. 4 And he took the fortified cities of Judah and came to Jerusalem. 5 Then Shemaiah the prophet came to Rehoboam and the leaders of Judah, who were gathered together in Jerusalem because of Shishak, and said to them, “Thus says the Lord: ‘You have forsaken Me, and therefore I also have left you in the hand of Shishak.’ ” 6 So the leaders of Israel and the king humbled themselves; and they said, “The Lord is righteous.” 7 Now when the Lord saw that they humbled themselves, the word of the Lord came to Shemaiah, saying, “They have humbled themselves; therefore I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some deliverance. My wrath shall not be poured out on Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak. 8 Nevertheless they will be his servants, that they may distinguish My service from the service of the kingdoms of the nations.” 9 So Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem, and took away the treasures of the house of the Lord and the treasures of the king’s house; he took everything. He also carried away the gold shields which Solomon had made. 10 Then King Rehoboam made bronze shields in their place, and committed them to the hands of the captains of the guard, who guarded the doorway of the king’s house. 11 And whenever the king entered the house of the Lord, the guard would go and bring them out; then they would take them back into the guardroom. 12 When he humbled himself, the wrath of the Lord turned from him, so as not to destroy him completely; and things also went well in Judah.
George Washington said, “Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”
John Quincy Adams said, “The glory of the Revolution was the bonding of government and Christianity.”
John Jay, the first chief justice and one of the three authors of the Constitution asserted, “It is the duty of the nation to see that it has Christian leaders.”
In the year 1811, the Supreme Court ruled that it was unconstitutional to remove the Bible from school curriculums. At that time the court sentenced a man to three months in jail for trying to remove it.
In 1878, in Reynolds vs. the United States Government, the Supreme Court ruled that Christianity and government could not be separated, since government is built upon the Bible and Christian beliefs.
President Theodore Roosevelt said, “I believe the next half century will determine if we will advance the cause of Christian civilization or revert to the horrors of brutal paganism.”
He went on to say, “There those who believe that a new modernity demands a new morality. What they fail to consider is the harsh reality that there is no such thing as a new morality. There is only one morality. There is only true Christian ethics over against which stands the whole of paganism. If we are to fulfill our great destiny as a people, then we must return to the old morality, the sole morality.”
THE MESSAGE FROM THE DREAM IS CLEAR!
The Christians, especially pastors, must fulfill their God given commission as ambassadors of Jesus Christ and make disciples of the nations.
Until very recently, pastors protected this nation from immorality and ensured people were aware that the candidates running would keep America a Judeo-Christian nation so God would continue to prosper America.
In the original 13 colonies, 11 of them made it mandatory that a candidate must admit Jesus Christ was their Lord and Savior and the Bible was used in the courts for morality and ethics.
During the American Revolution, the Black Robe Brigade was made up of pastors who led the army as officers fighting the British.
President Lyndon B. Johnson, being afraid of the pastors' influence, made a tax relief bribe to keep the pastors' mouth shut, so evil and immoral policies could become law.
The reality is that pastors don’t need a 501c3 to offer receipts to donors as this is already their right under Title 26 U.S. Code § 508 (c) (Mandatory exemptions/churches). Pastors can personally back a candidate, but the church cannot endorse one in order to keep its 501c3 status.
Once again, people fail because of a lack of knowledge, and in this case evil prospers, as wrong people are put into office.
Christians must vote people into office who uphold Godly morality to ensure the Republic continues against this tide of Marxism.
Please support us through prayers and finances so we can continue to sound the Warning message so that people understand the enemies of their freedoms, both spiritually and through ungodly government leaders.
