On May 29, 2021 I had a prophetic dream about the month of July. The Lord showed me that many have birthed their promise, but have yet to take hold of it completely. In the dream I was holding my friends baby and was specifically asking to go down to the lake to take a photo of the baby and I. My friend responded that I had to wait for her sister to go before me and that I would have to wait until July to take the picture with the baby. In the dream I was wearing a v-neck bathing suit with a coverup from the waist down, the bathing suit was white with light pink polka-dots. I was dressed and ready to go, holding the baby, and standing where the lake was in visible distance but I had to wait until July. I then immediately went into another dream that confirmed what the baby or ‘promise’ represented.
As I began to interpret with the Lord on this, I looked up the names of the individuals in the dream and then the meaning became crystal clear. My friends name means “God is my oath” or “God is a vow”, her husband’s name means “God is my judge”, the baby’s name means “completely”, their last name means “fire”, and my friends sister’s name means “Christ” or “anointed one”. Therefore the interpretation of the dream is as God is my Judge, and as God is my Oath, He is watching over the promise and all that He has vowed, and by the power of His Word, Christ is going before to bring it to completion.
This timing is pivotal because many are going through the last fires before beholding their promise, do not relent even if these fires carry over in July, as you are almost there! July is the seventh month, and seven represents completion and perfection in the Bible. My birthday is July 1 and the baby will turn seven months July 31. The Lord is going to bring His promises to completion in your life during the month of July, from beginning to end, watch in this window as many will finally be able to see the picture with clarity and with physical reality. I hear the Lord say, “this is the promise that has been refined in the fire” which symbolically ties into the last name of the mother and father of the baby.
In the dream I wanted to take a picture at the lake with the baby. My friend and her family live in Michigan, and Michigan is also the state I was born and raised, home of the Great Lakes. Lake Superior is the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area. July will be the beginning of the refreshing of your soul, as you synch with the Lord’s timing and wait for Him to go before you, the Holy Spirit will then totally immerse you into this new land and will work a far superior outcome for you.
The time stamp of the dream was 5.29.21 and coincides with Genesis 5:29, “When Lamech was 182 years old a son was born (vs 28). He named him Noah, saying, This one shall bring us relief and comfort from our work and the [grievous] toil of our hands due to the ground being cursed by the Lord.” Lamech named is son Noah, which means “rest”. Like a Noah, this promise you are holding represents the long awaited rest, new covenant, and land in the new era the Lord has vowed to you. Lamech lived 777 years and 7×3=21; dream date 5.29.21. Additionally, three represents the number of the Spirit and there are (3) 7’s at the end of Lamech’s life and 3 trimesters in pregnancy, not to mention water and the Spirit are closely connected. Symbolically the FATHER is both washing away ties to the old season by the Spirit, reseting you by the Spirit through rest, and bringing to completion that which was born of the Spirit!
ROLLING AWAY EGYPT
“Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.” Hebrews 4:11. The example of unbelief in this passage is the Israelites who wandered in the desert for 40 years. As I prepared to release this word on a broadcast recently, the Lord led me to the book of Joshua. The Lord showed me that many have crossed over “the Jordan” from “the 40 years of wilderness” and into their promised land but they had not fully taken possession of it yet. You are in the last stages of healing, so wait on His time! Like the dream, I was holding the baby but had to wait to take the picture.
Even if the Lord called you to Egypt for a season, He still has to cleanse you from Egypt, and even if the promise was birthed in the desert He still has to cleanse it before you bring it with you and take total possession of your new season and promised land. He is totally cleansing you of your past (even if He called you there), He is removing the dust of the wilderness – those places that no longer serve you, any remaining bondage from the atmosphere, the shame, rejection, fear, and the pain you experienced while waiting. There is a new consecration to walk in holiness and carry the weight of His call and message. I heard the Lord say, “He wants to deliver you, so that He can deliver through you”. You are so close, yet it is crucial you wait out the last stages of the healing! You have crossed the Jordan, you are in the promised land nearly ready to take possession!
The below scripture is referencing Joshua and the Israelites after they crossed the Jordan. They were in their promised land, though had not taken possession. It was imperative they waited in the camp to heal (from circumcision for consecration) at Gilgal. Once they were healed, then their next assignment was given to them – the strategy for the fall of Jericho.
“At that time the Lord said to Joshua, Make knives of flint and circumcise the [new generation of] Israelites as before. So Joshua made knives of flint and circumcised the sons of Israel at Gibeath-haaraloth. And this is the reason Joshua circumcised them: all the males of the people who came out of Egypt, all the men of war, had died in the wilderness on the way after they came out of Egypt. Though all the people who came out were circumcised, yet all the people who were born in the wilderness on the way after Israel came out of Egypt had not been circumcised. For the Israelites walked forty years in the wilderness till all who were men of war who came out of Egypt perished, because they did not hearken to the voice of the Lord; to them the Lord swore that He would not let them see the land which the Lord swore to their fathers to give us, a land flowing with milk and honey. So it was their uncircumcised children whom He raised up in their stead whom Joshua circumcised, because the rite had not been performed on the way. When they finished circumcising all the males of the nation, they remained in their places in the camp till they were healed. And the Lord said to Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you. So the name of the place is called Gilgal [rolling] to this day.” Joshua 5:2-9 AMPC
What you are waiting on is the completion of a transformation. It will be worth the wait! Once Joshua and the newly consecrated men observed Passover after being healed (the death of the past being covered by the blood), then Joshua encountered the commander of the army of the Lord. Symbolically the Lord instructed Joshua to remove his sandals because the land he was about to possess was holy and set apart to the Lord (Joshua 5:10-15). Next the Lord would reveal the plan to conquer Jericho (and it’s great wall) but first the Lord asked Joshua to SEE. “The Lord said to Joshua, “See, I have given Jericho into your hand, with its king and the mighty warriors.” Joshua 6:2. I believe the Lord highlighted this passage to me to say we need not look at the wall, natural obstacles, and giants in front of us. Some are even in the spirit in their promised land, though focusing on their spiritual opponent verses on what the Lord has said. This is a pivotal hour to be raised up in the Spirit and SEE with your spiritual eye what the Lord has given you, not the obstacle in front of you.
The Lord has been using the number four to speak to me for some time now. Four represents the fulness of the earth, times and seasons, transformation and authority. In complete metamorphosis there are four cycles of life that yield a complete transformation. The Lord highlighted Joshua 6:4 when speaking of the instructions for the fall of Jericho. “Also, seven priests shall carry seven trumpets [made] of rams’ horns ahead of the ark; then on the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets.” There are (4) 7’s listed: 1) seven priests 2) seven trumpets 3) seventh day 4) seven times. The Lord said there is a complete transformation happening within the consecrated Body right now, and you must wait for that completion to be revealed before moving ahead. As 1 Peter 2:9 writes, God’s people are a royal priesthood. The four seven’s can also be interpreted these are the times and days the voice of the Lord will be heard from His priests; those who 1) have consecrated hearts 2) listen to the voice of the Lord 3) see in the Spirit [faith] 4) obey the wisdom of the Lord 5) move at His authority (march) 6) carry the presence and message of the Lord 7) declare He is Lord.
GOING OUT WITH JOY
Reconnecting the dream, I was wearing a white v-neck bathing suit, with pink polka dots. In the dream I had an awareness of a desire in my heart, because of the v-neck style and when I asked the Lord about it He said, “nurturing”. White represents purity and consecration and light pink is typically associated with love and romance. Pink is created by blending the colors red and white (passion and purity), it stands for nurturing femininity, symbolizing youth and good health. Men and women alike have longed to nurture this promise the Lord has given, this promise that many are holding now. I hear the Lord say, “He is making all things new again, there will be no fear to nurture for the vision you are carrying shall come to pass”.
Polka Dots are symbolic of happiness. The iconic song writer Frank Sinatra had his first hit in 1940, “Polka dots and moon beams”. Though the 1940’s are known as time of war, they are also remembered for commitment, unity, love and romance. The name Frank means “free man” (wikipedia.com), I believe the Lord is liberating the forgotten song of your heart to sound again, as you release this song you will radiate and beam again from the touch of Love. The Lord is restoring the innocence and the nostalgia that was warn away in the desert, He is restoring your pure and innocent love for Him, and the way you relate to others. In the consecration He has cut away the rough edges, and has smoothed over the past seasons with new oil of gladness and joy.
The Lord prompted me to look at the Hebraic calendar, and I found the month of July holds two different celebrations. “The name of the fifth month on the Jewish calendar, Av, literally means “father.” It is customary to add the name “Menachem,” which means “comforter” or consoler” – so Menachem Av.”(chabad.org). On the 15th Av, 5781 (July 24) “The end of dying in the desert” is celebrated (chabad.org). This end of 40 long years of dying correlates with allowing Egypt to be rolled away from us and complete transformation written above. The Lord is transitioning you from old covenants to the new covenant during this time. I also found the celebration of Tu B’Av, the Jewish Day of Love celebrated on the same day. When Tu B’Av was celebrated as an ancient holiday, the unwed daughters of Jerusalem would dress in white (sometimes borrowed linen garments) and dance in the vineyards and whoever did not have a wife would come to find his bride. Differing from the 1940’s V day’s of WWII (victory in the war), and the V-neck in my bathing suit, the modern Israeli celebration of Tu B’Av is similar to the V-day of St. Valentine’s Day. I believe the Lord is saying this is a time and season to receive the Father’s nurturing love toward you as He redeems your promised land, and makes you victorious over His enemies. “Never again will you be called “The Forsaken City” or “The Desolate Land.” Your new name will be “The City of God’s Delight” and “The Bride of God,” for the LORD delights in you and will claim you as his bride.” Isaiah 62:4 (NLT)
As you wait upon the Lord walking in the Spirit with careful yieldedness to His leadership, you will be sure to not only birth but behold your long awaited promise! Prepare to take the picture! “You will leave Babylon with joy; you will be led out to the city in peace. The mountains and hills will burst into singing and the trees will shout for joy.” Isaiah 55:12 (GNT)
