Hope Arise!

In a dream this week, I saw a horse leading a gun carriage carrying a coffin laden with fragrant flowers. The carriage was proceeding through the main street of a city. I saw a beautifully dressed woman and noticed the splendid shoes she wore as she walked behind the carriage. The shoes were purple. Out the front was a little girl, full of the joy of spring and her name was HOPE. I was aware of the tone of the procession. The gun carriage carrying the coffin wasn’t going to a funeral! Rather, they were proceeding through the streets, celebrating with HOPE! In the next scene, I saw family members tormented by evil spirits like lost lambs. Individuals, who have been through trauma(s) in their lives, having embraced lies. Lots of lies. Spiritually, these individuals were like dead men/women walking. Then I woke up.

I prayed for the interpretation and believe the woman represents the Church. The purple shoes speaking of sonship. (Luke 15:22). The gun carriage represents your God filled WORDS. Holy Spirit POWER! Isaiah 54:17b (NKJV) “For your righteousness is from Me, says the Lord.” Speak LIFE in My Name and in the power of My Holy Spirit.”

The child is a metaphor for the spirit of God (HOPE) and the coffin represents ‘hopeless’ dead situations; relationships and lost inheritances from a natural perspective. Father wants to lift our HOPE and blow wind into our sails as we SET our sail! How do we set our sail?

“See as I SEE!” I hear Father say.


I was then reminded of the story of Lazarus. Mary and Martha PRAYED to Jesus to come back to Bethany to heal their brother. Lazarus ends up dying and Jesus returns to Bethany. On the fourth day raises Lazarus from the dead.

Jesus said to His disciples in John 11: 1-4 (TPT),

“This sickness will not end up in death for Lazarus, but will bring glory and praise to God. What takes place will reveal the greatness of the Son of God.”

Father wants us to seek His face. Not listen to what we hear from an earthly perspective or embrace lies of the enemy. Power is birthed through prayer! He wants us to embrace HOPE. To rely on His strength in impossible situations. To see ‘dead situations brought to LIFE’. Some of you once saw, have been wounded in the fight and lost your sight. Lies embraced have kept you from taking flight.

Our HOPE is in you Lord! Our strength is in You! We fix our eyes on YOU.

Some of you have believed the lies the devil has told you. The faith deposit in you ‘feels’ paralysed by lies. Lies, like flies, have swarmed around you paralysing the promises of God. You’ve been afraid to speak LIFE over those ‘hopeless’ situations for fear of retribution.

Satan is the father of lies! Scripture teaches us that Beelzebub means “lord of the flies” and is a reference to the devil. (Exodus 8:21-31). Flies are pesky things, that buzz around and are annoying! SWAT THEM! Squash them with the TRUTH! You are full of power by the Spirit of the LORD.


“Shake off the shackles and let out a shout! I have risen over your circumstances, over your situation! Your enemies must be scattered! Release My Word and take up your sword and fight! Rely on Me. Lean on ME. Fix your eyes on ME.”

“Those loved ones, that hopeless situation, that failing marriage, that work situation, that oppression you’re experiencing, I say to you, “I AM YOUR HOPE!” I will deliver you and set your loved ones free! You will see My goodness amid your impossibility! Dead things will be raised to LIFE!”

“SKIP FOR JOY! That wayward child who seems trapped in deception and drug addiction they are coming home to Me! As you go, you will flow in My healing power! You are releasing My Kingdom here on earth!”

“Seek My face and speak LIFE. You walk in the LIGHT! 24/7. Fear Not! I AM with you, says the Lord.”

When Jesus told the disciples he was ready to go back to Bethany, they were freaked out at the idea of Jesus returning to the town where the people wanted to stone Him. Then Jesus made it plain to them, (the disciples) in John 11:9-10 (TPT),

“Are there not twelve hours of daylight in every day? You can go through a day without fear of stumbling when you walk in the one who gives light to the world. But you will stumble when the Light is not in you, for you’ll be walking in the dark.”

We swat lies with TRUTH. We are more than conquerors in Christ! God is LOVE. We are destined to walk in the authority and the power of the Lord Jesus Christ. The One who demonstrated the way of Heaven here on Earth. Empowered by grace to not give up HOPE for those around us.

As we pray, we declare in faith the HOPE we have in Christ. We trust that He will bring dead things to life! We release the power of the Holy Spirit into our situations, into our family’s and across the board of our sphere of influence! We expect to see mighty miracles as the dead are raised to life!

Luke 4:18-19 (TPT) “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, and He has anointed Me to be Hope for the poor, Pardon for prisoners, Freedom for the broken-hearted, and New Eyes for the blind. I have come to share the message of Jubilee, for the times of God’s great acceptance has arrived.”

John 14:12 (TPT) “I tell you this timeless truth: The person who follows Me in faith, believing in Me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do- and even greater miracles than these, because I go to be with My Father. For I will do whatever you ask Me to do when you ask Me in My name. That is how the Son will show what the Father is really like and bring glory to Him. Ask Me anything in My name and I will do it for you!”
