God has always used dreams to warn His people of things to come or to give them direction. He even used dreams to warn some unbelievers of things to come. For instance, God warned Pharaoh of a coming famine that would be so terrible it would devour everything from a 7 year period of abundance. He also showed Nebuchadnezzar the progression of world dominating kingdoms that would culminate with second coming of the Messiah to set up His everlasting kingdom (Daniel 2).
In the New Testament, God told Joseph in a dream to go ahead and take Mary as his wife "... for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost" (Matt. 1:20). God also used dreams to warn the wise men not to return to Herod and to tell Joseph to take the child Jesus to Egypt for safety. And in Acts 13, God used a dream to give Paul specific direction where he should go preach the gospel.
The book of Acts also has Peter's sermon on the day of Pentecost where he quotes the prophet Joel about the last days:
"But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your SONS and your DAUGHTERS shall prophesy, and your young men shall see VISIONS, and your old men shall dream DREAMS: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall PROPHESY: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; BLOOD, and FIRE, and vapour (pillars) of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:" (Acts 2:16-20).
My first dream about a nuclear attack on America was when I was 16 years old back in 1984. I was not living for the Lord then, but He was definitely trying to get my attention. I say that because it wasn't like I was sitting in a church that preached Bible prophecy back in those days. In fact, I only went to church a couple of times as a teenager and I never heard a sermon on the coming of the Lord or end time prophecy. However, that dream was so real that I never forgot it and to this day I feel that it was from the Lord.
On November 11, 2012, I had a dream before I woke up this morning that a large area in the northeast coast of the USA experienced a devastating attack. I saw fires burning and I assumed it was a nuclear attack from the amount of devastation. I was just barely outside of the destruction radius. In the dream, I had some kind of job with the government about responding to a major attack. I had a direct line to Obama and I was talking to him over a radio but when I asked about how he would respond to the attack, he got quiet and would not speak. In the dream, I thought something was wrong with the radio so I went to where Obama was eating with a bunch of people in a big cafeteria. I stood several feet away from Obama saying over and over, "Mr. President what is the plan? What are you going to do?" In the dream, I knew that for America to survive Obama had to fight back and hit our enemies hard, but he refused to even look up or speak to me. It was then that I knew that he wasn't going to do anything. He was just going to let America be defeated. Also, his reaction told me that he had prior knowledge and was complicit in the attack. This is not surprising when you know the Bible foretold a world government in the last days (Rev. 13 & 17) and that it has the agenda of the UN and certain globalists leaders like Bush and Obama to bring down the main obstacle to a world government which is America. In fact, I believe that Obama is one of the ten kings the Bible foretold would give their power and strength to the Beast.
In the dream, after I spent several minutes trying to get Obama to respond, he sent a staffer (who looked like that woman Candy Crowley from CNN) to give some stupid liberal reason as to why we were not going to respond to the attack. I cut her off as I was getting very upset because I knew it was not the right thing to do. Then, another woman started agreeing with me in the conversation. The staffer became angry and had me and this woman arrested and put in a holding room in some kind of prison. For some reason, I started working out and doing push ups when I noticed that my broken wrist was not completely healed (which tells me that this is probably not years away as I have a broken wrist right now that is not completely healed). I shared this in church on the Sunday morning that I had it and published an article about it on www.deanodle.org and our Facebook page.
On June 18, 2013, I was awakened at 5:58 in the morning by a very vivid dream that I also believe was from the LORD JESUS CHRIST. It seemed like I was driving on interstate 85 toward Montgomery, Alabama which is about 50 miles west of Auburn. I am not sure if I was headed there or not, but I was definitely on an American interstate headed WEST. In the dream, I was alone in the car and said out loud, "I bet I will see a mushroom cloud of in the distance in a moment." It was not 5 seconds later that a huge nuclear explosion happened about 40 to 50 miles ahead of me. I watched the fire and smoke rise and form into a mushroom cloud. As cars were coming to a stop on the interstate, I slowed down and stopped. I hurriedly pulled my phone out of my pocket and took a picture of cloud as it went up into the sky. In the dream, I realized that my "knowing ahead of time” was the Holy Spirit stirring the gift of prophecy that God gave me many years ago. Then I started looking to turn around to go back the other way. I was not afraid or worried as I felt like I was far enough away from the blast radius. I did see some small fires on the side of the road, but mostly I knew it had begun and I needed to get back home.
This dream is pretty straight forward. The first thing that came to me when I woke up was that this event in America is not far off. This is my second dream about a nuclear attack on America in less than a 8 months and my third since I was sixteen. These two dreams about a nuclear attack on America are significant because whenever a prophetic dream is repeated two or more times in a short period, the Bible tells us that means the prophetic word is established and will shortly come to pass: "And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath shewed Pharaoh what he is about to do.... And for that the dream was DOUBLED unto Pharaoh TWICE; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass" (Genesis 41:25;32).
In December of 2011, I had a vision of the east and west coasts of the United States being destroyed. Entire cities were burned up and left in ruins. I could not tell if it was a terrorist attack or actually some type of missile strike from Russian or Chinese submarines that part wasn’t clear (though now I believe it will be Russia and China). But it was a long path of destruction down both of our coasts. I tried to dismiss this vision as just the result of our conversation earlier that morning. However, that evening after my wife and I put our daughter to bed, we decided to read a chapter in a Kenneth E. Hagin book that my wife had been reading entitled I Believe in Visions. I read it many years ago, but had forgotten most of what was in the book. I chose to begin where my wife left her bookmark and began reading aloud.
For those of you who never heard of Kenneth Hagin, he gave his life to Jesus at the age of 17 while bedfast and dying of deformed heart and a blood disorder. And shortly thereafter, he was miraculously healed as a Baptist boy by just believing and acting upon Mark 11:23-24. He started out as a Baptist in 1934 and then got baptized in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues while pastoring a Baptist church. Later, he moved over among the Pentecostals and had powerful ministry that went on seven more decades and touched the world. His teachings on the gifts of the Spirit and the five-fold ministry are the most solid and Biblical that I have come across over the years.
The account below is the section that really jumped out as I read. In fact, the Holy Spirit hit me so hard that I had to hold back tears just to keep reading. This is a powerful vision and prophetic word that God gave Kenneth Hagin during a tent revival meeting he was holding in Rockwall, Texas in 1950. As I read, my wife and I both felt that this prophecy was for now. It also confirmed to me what the Holy Spirit has been showing me the last few years about the judgments that are coming to America and world. As I started writing this message I also realized that God gave me the vision on the 70th Anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the attack that brought America fully into World War II.
Hagin wrote, "About that time, the Holy Spirit came upon me again. It seemed as if a wind was blowing on me, and I fell flat on my face on the platform. As I lay under the power of God, it seemed as if I were standing high on a plain somewhere in space, and I could see for miles and miles around me, just as one can stand on the great plains of the United States and gaze off into the distance for miles. I looked in every direction, but I couldn’t see a sign of life anywhere. There were no trees or grass, no flowers or vegetation of any kind. There were no birds or animals. I felt so lonely. I was not conscious of my earthly surroundings. As I looked to the west, I saw what appeared to be a tiny dot on the horizon. It was the only moving thing I could see. As I watched, it grew larger and came toward me, taking on shape and form. Soon I could see it was a horse. As it came clos
