A Prophetic Dream Being Fulfilled Now?
Mar 19, 2009
On Feb. 6, 1986 I had a dream that I actually remembered. I seldom get significant dreams. I can count the significant dreams on one hand. But this was one that I wrote down because I knew it was important.
I was living and working in Batesville, Arkansas at the time. I dreamed that I was at work and got a paycheck. I went across the street to the bank to cash the check--which was strange, because there was no bank across the street in real life. Some years later, however, a bank was built at that very location!
Anyway, as I cashed my check, I found that it was a rather strange check, because at the place I was to endorse the check, there was a box of small writing, and it was signed by Ronald Reagan, who was president at the time. I only remember that in the box was the date written: March 18.
When I cashed the check, the bank teller told me, "This is the beginning of a lot of money." In the dream, I knew this was important, and so I told her to repeat it to me, because I wanted to remember it when I woke up! She did, and sure enough, I remembered it when I awoke.
In praying about it later, the Lord said, "March 18 I set you free."
Over the years, I have watched March 18, because sometimes monetary signs occur on that day. Sometimes, too, they are signs of a Jubilee ("I set you free"). The last major Jubilee sign occurred on that date in 1997, when we established the Jubilee Charitable Trust. Only when it was completed on that date did it occur to me that it was connected to the Word in 1986.
Other people have noticed this date in their own lives as well, beginning in 1986. But I cannot tell you their stories. I can say only that God set people free by much tribulation.
On March 18, 1999 we attended Carl Petty's funeral. He was an old friend, whom I mentioned in my book, The Wars of the Lord. Ron referred to him in two ways: "The King" and "Petty Cash." The latter name was just to keep him humble--as if he needed that! I wonder if perhaps this too may be prophetic, especially because of the 10-year Hezekiah Factor (1999-2009). Obviously, March 18, 2009 was the funeral of petty cash on a national scale. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke announced his intention to create $1.25 Trillion to inject into the economy. This is called "monetizing the debt," which simply refers to the creation of new money instead of selling Treasury bonds in exchange for previously-created money that is already in circulation.
The currency markets were immediately rocked by this. The value of the dollar plummeted and, as I write this, it takes more than $1.36 to buy one euro. On March 4 the going price was $1.24. On March 18 the dollar went from a low of $1.2986 to a close of $1.3533, a drop in value of nearly 6 cents. And today it has reached $1.3737.
Bernanke's creation of $1.25 Trillion is unprecedented in world history. Yes, indeed, this is the beginning of a lot of money. If this gets out of hand, watch for foreign nations to begin dumping dollars to contain their losses. If this happens, Katie, bar the doors, we're in for a wild ride as people prepare for hyper-inflation.
