Micah 4: 9-10 Now why do you cry aloud? Is there no king in you? Has your counsellor perished, that pangs have seized you like a woman in labour? Writhe and groan, O daughter Zion, like a woman in labour, for now you shall go forth from the city and camp in the open country; you shall go to Babylon. There you shall be rescued, there the Lord will redeem you from the hands of your enemies.
Dream: The dream started in a hospital. I saw two men that I know making beds in the hospital. I asked why they were doing that. They said there was no one else to do it. Then I realized we were in a war. The two sides were the Germans and the Russians as in WWII when Nazi Germany invaded Russia. The Nazis were the enemy. I felt in the dream that I knew my side would win the war. But suddenly and ferociously the enemy attacked. I was astonished at the weapons they had. They drove their tanks over soldiers before they could so much as get out of the way. They fired their tank-guns and killed those farther afield. They were merciless. It was carnage, far, far worse than I had ever expected. What amazed me was how well-prepared and well-equipped the enemy was. Most astonishing was the speed with which the attack came and how easily they seemed to overtake those on our side. A most disturbingly vivid dream.
One thing I feel we are being warned about is complacency. We need to re-double our efforts, increase our prayers and sacrifices. We have the victory but let us not be caught off-guard. Watch and pray! The enemy wants to separate as many souls as possible from the Church so that they are not receiving the sacraments. Cling to the sacraments with all your might! They are the most powerful weapons we have. If you want to find out how powerful, read Marino Restrepo’s “Catholics Awake!”
Heavenly Father in Jesus we have the victory. Help us to remain steadfast in the faith. Help us to avail ourselves of the spiritual weapons you give us—most especially the sacraments. Jesus we trust in you. Save souls!
