Good day to all, Royal Ones. Please spread the word of warning to local churches to prepare and engage security plans and protocols.
DREAM – I had a dream this morning. A large group visited a worship service with a large gathering of believers in Jesus. [I could not tell the time of day of the worship service — Saturday morning, Sunday morning, or night.] The welcoming congregation was super excited to see so many visitors in one group and received the group with great demonstrations of love. During the worship, the group took over, locked down the building and held the congregation hostage.
ON THE OUTSIDE — In the dream I could not tell how much time extended for the hostage situation. It was at least a few days because I saw people outside driving by and passing by and noticing that no parked cars were moved. Somehow the police arrived, and it became national news that a large group tricked the congregation by coming in as visitors and then took them as hostages.
ON THE INSIDE — It was a terror filled situation. People were separated and huddled in the lobby perimeter of this church building. People with medical needs struggled over time and church members screamed and called out for help.
THIS IS THE WARNING FROM THE DREAM. ALL OF THE LORD’S CHURCH NEED CREATE A SECURITY PROTOCOL AND TRAIN CONGREGATIONS WITH SECRET WORDS/PHRASES SO THAT NO ONE PANICS IF THERE IS A HOSTAGE ATTEMPT OR POTENTIAL VIOLENT SITUATION VIA A LARGE GROUP OF VISITORS TO A MAIN OR MAJOR SERVICE.
Whatever the local church structure, I implore pastors, elders, deacons, and all senior leaders to devise and/or review the church’s security plan. I strongly encourage repeated practice sessions with congregations so that loss of life is minimized and/or prevented in the event of a dangerous situation. I suggest a copy of the plan be on file with the nearest police department and a presentation given by law enforcement to the congregation. Finally, I recommend a partnership among pastors in a certain radius where help can be sought quickly when pastors reach out.
I know we are praying. Let’s continue, and be sensitive and share the messages Holy Spirit gives us to share. Please prayerfully consider sharing this message with those you know in church leadership. We cannot afford reaction in our response. The Lord gives us times to prepare and engage, and we must come out of the clouds to implement His plans.
Selah, and love to all.
