I believe as we step into 5782 and going into 2022, we’re stepping into a very strategic time. In Hebrew the number two is the word bet. Bet has the word picture of a tent or a tabernacle. Prophetically a tent or tabernacle is a place that houses the presence of God or a place where you meet face to face with God like Moses did. I feel one of the main emphasis for 5782 is building the habitation of God for the things to come. The Lord gave me a dream concerning this in August 2021.
In the dream a known apostle of Kentucky asked me to be apart of a church service. It was night time, and I was making my way to the church I knew that we were gathering because of end time events and circumstances that were going on. As I reached my destination it looked like we were meeting in a house church similar to the meeting house at Caine Ridge where the 2nd great awakening was birthed. On the lower level everyone was packed in huddled together praying because of the times we were in. I found myself on a hill over looking the meeting house and the river. Suddenly, the night sky split open and I saw Noah’s Ark right before me. I was amazed at the sight I saw, I couldn’t believe Noah’s Ark was before me. The front of the ark hung over the church for a bit. It then turned to its side to where I could see whole length of the ark and the dream ended.
As I began to press into the meaning of this dream I was reminded of the verses in Matthew 24:37-39 NIV, “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” In that time we read in Genesis 6, where the Lord encountered Noah and gave him the blueprint from Heaven to build the boat.
We are in a very apostolic time of advancing and building the Kingdom of God. Over the past couple years we have been in a divine reset. Everything that can be shaken is being shaken. As structures and systems come down, we must also build up with the things of God (Jeremiah 1:10). One of the emphasis of 5781 is the ox anointing. The ox/apostolic anointing is going to help us carry the burden to see the manifestation of the habitation of God in 5782 and beyond. The ox anointing has come upon different ones throughout the Bible like Noah, Moses, Nehemiah, Solomon, Jesus, the disciples. Noah in his time was anointed to build the ark as the vessel needed to weather the storm and flood that would come. The ark was a place of safety, provision, a storehouse, and could withstand the judgement of God.
I believe the dream I had about the ark is pointing to that. There is an apostolic blueprint the Lord desires to release to his leaders and people. Acts 7:44 TPT, says, “God gave Moses the revelation of the pattern of the tabernacle of the testimony. By God’s command, he made it exactly according to the specifications given to him for our ancestors in the wilderness.”
This “ark” is the representation of the habitation of God that will sustain the Church and the people of God in the days to come. I’ve had several dreams over the last few months where the Lord has shown me the Church will be vital and necessary in the days to come. It will be the safe place of refuge for the people of God to run to and for those who want to be saved.
Over the past couple years of this divine reset, the Lord has allowed church as normal to cease. There is a new normal that as been set and is needed in this hour. It’s caused the Body of Christ to get back to the apostolic mandate of the Bible. This can be reflected in another meaning or spelling of the “ark” in the dream can be “arc.” I believe it can stand for apostolic-revival-centers. This is the heart of God for this hour. There’s a Nehemiah mandate to build. It’s no longer about just going to church. These apostolic revival centers are meant to awaken, equip, and mobilize believers to build and advance the Kingdom of God as the disciples did in the book of Acts.
Another point and strategy to take from this dream is, prayer and unity for the Body of Christ will be key in these last days. We see this modeled in the book of Acts. Another meaning of the number two in 5782 is two worlds colliding. More than ever we are seeing the influence of the spirit realm in our natural earth realm. One of the ways the Church in the book of Acts dealt with the anti christ spirit and demonic influence of their time was to gather and pray until things shifted. Acts 4:31 TPT says, “As they prayed the earth shook beneath them, causing the building they were in to tremble. Each one of them was filled with the Holy Spirit, and they proclaimed the word of God with unrestrained boldness.”
As they gathered together in unity and prayed on a regular basis, they were continually filled the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enabled them to walk in great power, signs, wonders, miracles, and great boldness. These are some of the keys needed for the Body of Christ in the days to come to advance and overcome.
