Prophetic Dream with A lot of symbolism - the black bear with the face of a male lion
This dream was originally recorded in our ministry's archive on May 25, 2019. After having a dream last week about a Death Angel, I felt led to release this dream after much prayer.
1) I didn't understand why the people that were being attacked did not try to escape – run away. There were exits everywhere. Enough for everyone to get out safely. But instead, they just ran around in circles, trying to run away from the bears. Some were crazy enough to walk up to the bears and then the bears would maul them.
2) The second weird thing was the transformation the bears underwent after the second bear came into the arena. The black bear's body remained unchanged, but its entire face features changed. Its face changed from the features of a black bear to a male lion's face.
I felt in my spirit that this dream was significant and a foreshadow of something. I contacted one of our ministerial leaders who is known for interpreting dreams. An interpretation was provided, which I did not record in its entirety. So, I can only share what I did record.
This ministerial leader also had a similar dream that same night, which was odd. The elements of my dream and the elements of this minister leader’s dream were shockingly similar. My dream involved, and the focus point was on the two bears and the destruction they were causing. While the minister leader’s dream was on a specific megachurch and its leader in the the Charlotte, North Carolina area.
I listened as this minister leader interpreted both dreams. After we departed, I prayed concerning both dreams based on how Holy Spirit was directing me to pray. And then, Holy Spirit led me to read Amos 7:1-9. Lord, may those who have ears to hear – hear the word of the Lord.
The angel of death
I was standing on the earth. I am not sure of my location for my focus in the dream was not my surroundings. My attention throughout the dream was on something I saw taking place in heaven’s sky.
As I looked up, I could see this object flying across the bright sky. Initially, I could not make out what it was. I just watched as it flashed across the sky heading in a certain direction. But I was unsure as to where it was heading.
At some point, I was able to zoom in to see this flying object clearer. When I did, I can tell it was an angel but suddenly, dread came over me. At first, I could not see this angel very clearly. My focus was blurry. I just only could make out it was an angel.
But suddenly, I could see it had on this long grayish-white dingy gown that was torn in different places. As he flew across the sky, he flew in a position like how Superman possessed as he flew from one place to another. His left arm was extended, but his right arm was crouched close to his chest. It appeared he had some object in his right hand. I know it was not a sword of some kind because the object was small, and he was able to conceal it tightly in his hand. I could barely see the top of the object he had in his hand. But it looked like it was either circular or cylinder in shape. So, I assumed it was a scroll or a message of some kind.
And then I woke up.
A bear with a lion's face dream
Over the centuries, God has always used dreams to communicate with His servants. As students of the Bible, we know, in the past, God has spoken to His servants like Jacob (Genesis 37:5-10), Joseph, the husband of Mary (Matthew 2:12-22), Solomon (1 Kings 3:5-15), and many others through dreams (Daniel 2:1; 7:1; Joel 2:28; Matthew 27:19; Acts 2:17).
As we know, God is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). His methods of communication do not change just because humanity has entered into a new season or generation. Therefore, God has spoken through specific members of Newford Ministries' apostolic team through dreams that have had a direct bearing on local families as well as churches and leaders in their respective region and on a national scale.
