Walking up a berm towards a beach. I reach the high point of the berm/ridge where I can see the beach and the ocean out to the horizon. I notice crocodiles sunbathing and walking on the beach. I can also see crocodiles coming up out of the ocean. I then observe people on the beach sunbathing and walking. They seem not to care about the crocodiles among them.
I see crocodiles in death spirals on the beach. They have infants/toddlers in their jaws. Again, the adults are undisturbed by this violence happening right next to them.
No one is playing on the beach. They are all distracted with books, phones, tablets, sleeping, etc.
I am horrified and disturbed by what I see. The Spirit of God pointed to Hosea 3 and Revelations 4.
The Alligators are demons.
The Adults are backslidden Christians, distracted Christians, un-engaged Christians, hardened Christians – specifically leaders.
The Children are the young and very young in Christ.
The dream is referencing time: now and into the future.
Hosea 4 – is talking about current state.
Revelation 3 – is talking about action
The last thing I noted was "Adult Christians" and "Christian Leaders" had not a care in the world for the New in Christ. There was an air of “they have to figure it out.” No leadership, no friendship, no teaching, no helping, no empathy or sympathy. It was hard hearts telling soft hearts to get hard.
God is calling "Christians" back to personal relationships, invested relationships, fatherly and motherly relationships. Christian leaders have to get over screwed up people and get back to personal evangelism that includes discipling, fellowshipping, teaching, exhorting, rebuking, disciplining, pastoring, etc.
LEADERS - you can’t take anybody where you haven’t already gone. Ask Moses and Joshua and Jesus!
