Ascending The Mountain -
A Prophetic Dream
When the dream began, I was
standing in a cattle car that was at the end of a train. The train was moving
up the side of a mountain. More accurately it was the foothills leading to a
very tall mountain.
cattle car reminded me of the type of car that the Jews were taken to the
concentration camps in. While I don’t know how many, the cattle car was fairly
crowded with believers. There were no denominational distinctions. There was
however a strong gift of discernment operating in all of us that were in the
While in the dream, we didn’t fully understand why, we all knew that we must get
off the train immediately. The door was locked and all attempts to communicate
with the engineers responsible for the train were ignored.
Lord then directed me to begin removing boards from the floor of the cattle car,
so that we might escape this way. My only fear at this point was the very real
possibility of injury from the railroad ties below.
After lowering myself out of the train car, I realized that my fear of being
injured was unfounded. The reason for this is that the train tracts were
disappearing as the train moved up the mountain.
After watching this happen until the train disappeared over a hill, I then
turned and proceeded to walk back down the foothill.
Instantly in the dream, I arrived at a small town. The condition of this town
struck me as everything seemed to be run down and suffering from neglect. Most
of the buildings were either made from corrugated metal covered with rust, or
they were run down mobile homes.
I approached the first mobile home, an elderly woman and her daughter were
getting into a car. One thing that was strange about this is the elderly woman
was actually a good friend of mine –Bryan Mock. (See Bryan’s page in this
Anyway I asked this elderly person to take me back up the mountain so we could
help others who would also be getting off the train. Because she was willing to
do this, her daughter became angry and went back inside.
traveled for a short distance, and then we came to a place where we decided it
was best to continue traveling off the road. As soon as we did this the vehicle
turned into a bed on wheels! The awesome thing about this bed is that it was
able to traverse streams, go over boulders through deep mud, etc.
one point as we were moving up the side of the mountain again we encountered a
very large root; which I was certain because of the size, would be impossible
even for this “all terrain” bed to go over. Much to my surprise, the bed easily
rolled over this tree root.
last part of the dream was frightening at first sight. We next encountered
a three year old toddler sitting in a small clearing. This child was screaming
because he was in great pain, as he had hold of a venomous snake that had bitten
the child multiple times.
awesome thing was that even though the child was in pain, the venom from the
snake had absolutely no effect upon the child at all. In fact the child had a
death grip on the snake right below its head and was in the process of killing
After the child killed the snake, we put the child up on the bed and continued
up the side of the mountain. In the dream we had expectancy that there would be
more as we ascended up the side of the mountain. This is where the dream ended,
and we never encountered any one from the cattle car before the end of the
I prayed, the interpretation seemed to come almost too rapidly to fully
comprehend, and some parts are still being prayed over.
The Train: This represents the present state of the institutional church.
The people in the cattle car are those in the church that are discerning not
only the dangerous spiritual compromises within the church, but also the
arrogance that is present as we ascend into the eternal purposes of God.
The fact that this cattle car is the last one in the train represents the last
generation of the institutional church as we know it. The
train track itself represents the presumptuous ways of man attempting to reach
higher realms of God’s glory in the mountain of the Lord.
we sense that the Father has determined judgement upon this presumptuous train,
those in the cattle car attempt to communicate with the front men in the train;
only to be dismissed as unimportant by the more spiritually significant
leadership of the church.
only way left for us to avoid the destruction or judgment determined is to tear
up the foundational planks we are standing on.
fact that the train tracks disappeared represents that this time period in
church history is soon to pass from the earth as the Bride of Christ makes
herself ready for coming of the Lord.
The Small Town: The condition of this town represents the despair felt
especially among those of the older generations as they feel that their time of
usefulness in the kingdom of God has past. There is a sense among them that the
apostasy of the modern church is partly their responsibility.
Lord would say yes -- your generation is partly responsible,
but this no longer matters - because where sin has
abounded, My grace to overcome is present with you at this hour, and the gift
and calling of God on your generation is still without repentance. I have
called you to remember and recount the lessons learned in brokenness. These
lessons are needed in this hour, and in this season. The wisdom of your age has
been given to stop the iniquity of the fathers from visiting the children of
this last generation.
Just as Moses in his old age climbed Mt. Nebo, so shall My children who are full
of age ascend into the Mountain of the Lord and the Holy Calling upon you in these last hours.
you enter into My rest and ascend into My purposes, surely the hearts of the
fathers will be turned to the children, and the children to the fathers.
You as a ‘Moses generation’ will join with the ‘Joshua/Caleb generation’ (those
currently in mid-life) and together you will overcome every obstacle that the
enemy would place in your path, as you begin your ascension into the
high calling of God in Christ -led by My Holy Spirit.
The Three Year Old Toddler: This represents this last generation of young
believers that are so much on fire for the Lord. (The Third Day Church) This
‘generation of David’ surely has been given the "Key of David" as they walk in a
spirit of Divine Revelation concerning praise and worship of the Father and His
While this generation has
been given much power over the enemy, they lack the discernment needed to ascend
into the fullness of God’s purposes in these last days. I believe it is
God’s will though that the older generations seek out the youth where they are
anointing and rest that the older generations are operating in (represented by
the all-terrain bed) will be needed by the youth. Clearly though the
responsibility for being obedient rests upon those of the Joshua/Caleb
generation, as they must first be willing to dismantle the foundations that keep
them captive to the path of presumption.
