For a year or so, Victory Christian Center held all night prayer meetings two times per month.
I attended these, seeking God Himself with everything in me.
During that time, I had a recurring dream that I didn’t understand.
It was a hot Oklahoma summer, before the time intercessors here had prayed in the rain and broken the drought.
In my dream, on a hot day, I saw a bush, totally withered, with the leaves still on it, all dry.
Jesus walked up to this bush, and in His hand He held a box of wooden matches.
He smiled really big, and lit a match and extended it towards the dead bush.
Then I would wake up smiling, not knowing what this was all about.
I had this dream repeatedly over a period of months, until finally, one night when I awoke I said: “Jesus? Why do I keep having this dream? Are You trying to speak to me?”
I thought about these verses from the life of Moses:
Ex 3:2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
Ex 3:3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.
Immediately Holy Spirit spoke to me:
“America is in trouble. I have been preparing many of my servants in the business world for many decades, that I will now anoint and set apart as deliverers to this nation. I am lighting bushes on fire in their lives, to see if they will turn aside and seek me…”
Most of you know the rest of the story in my life, how I became one of those leaders – how I left the two companies we owned, and went out into the desert to learn the ways of native americans, and how God would desire to use them to unlock a great move of Holy Spirit across this land….
