In a recent dream, I was driving through the southern, middle, and northern parts of America. I was struck at how almost everywhere I looked I saw the American Flag waving from light poles, the front, and backs of vehicles, house porches, people marching & waving it along streets like a parade and more.
It seemed as if I was traveling in a non-stop parade across America and captured by the amazing view of American flags waving everywhere.
In the dream I suddenly had a prophetic revelation from the Lord– “those who honor the flag are honoring the purposes of God for the land.” I also knew that this was a controversial statement. I said out loud “The church is often so religious, they don’t understand the significance of anything outside the four walls, especially the Godly purpose of nations.”
Then I said: “if people wave the American flag with honor, even if it has nothing to do with God himself, God will honor the nation” — in the dream, I was wrestling with the theology of what I just said, and then another prophetic revelation came to me:
“The flag represents the blood of men and women who died in honor, to uphold ideals they believed were just and righteous”. I then heard this from the Lord: “I honor their sacrifice”.
Then I thought, “well God hasn’t America’s flag been used for many injustices and evils as well”?
I heard this: “My name has been used for many injustices and evils too”… “but its the blood of the one who honored my name that is spiritually applied to my name” —
I knew when He said this, that the blood of those who honored the just and righteous causes of America was credited to the flag.
Lastly in the dream, I knew two things:
1) Nations were not made by man, but by God. Every nation was given a redemptive purpose and calling, and it was up to its leaders to govern, and steward unto these purposes.
2) If Americans honor the flag in this time, it will have a spiritual effect on the unity of the nation, and the presidential elections.
