SOUTHERN U.S. - A DREAM OF COMING NATURAL DISASTER
Given On 2/29/2000
By Stephen Hansen
At 4:30 A.M. on February 29, 2000 I awoke from one of the most profound and disturbing dreams that I have had since the mid. 80’s when I dreamed three dreams of nuclear holocaust in the U.S. On a scale of one to ten this dream registered off the scale and probably would register a twelve! This dream was awesome in scope as it encompassed a geographical area that extended from central Arkansas eastward to Florida, then south through Florida to the southern tip of the state. From there, south and west to the Yucatan Peninsula, then due north back to central Arkansas. Now you know what I mean by awesome in scope. After awakening, I pondered this dream for at least fifteen minutes before I came to and realized that I must write this down as quickly as possible before I lost it, as I could already sense some of the lesser details fading…. Therefore, I will recount the dream to the best of my ability to remember it, as I not only saw the dream but in one part I experienced it…. One point that I feel I can make, with assurance, is this was not a dream caused by over indulgence of food or drink, therefore I lean toward it as very probable of being of the Lord. My primary reference to this dream shall be the book of Joel, with secondary references to the dreams of Daniel, a great prophet, indeed! May the Lord Himself give, to all that read this, insight into this awesome occurrence, Amen!
The dream began with a man standing before a very large television screen, which showed the geographical area of the Southeastern U.S. and the Gulf of Mexico down to the Yucatan Peninsula. The man seemed to be telling the people what was happening, using a pointer in his hand and indicating to various areas on the map. I recognized this man as Pat Robertson of the 700 Club. This was a live picture that was projected on this wall screen, as I could detect changes occurring as I watched… "Changes indeed!"
From there on it was as if I were in the dream itself, yet above it all, as I seemed to be looking down and into the distance yet with great clarity and detail. At first glance everything seemed normal then I detected movement, but not normal movement… My attention was drawn to the southern tip of the state of Florida. I noticed what looked like a fault line dividing the peninsula in half that went almost to the tip of the state. There the fault line turned abruptly to the east and at the ocean it then abruptly broke at right angles to the south and on into the Gulf of Mexico. On one side of the fault line the land was raised,(the west I think), and on the east and south it was lowered. I perceived that this was due to magma displacement near the surface of the earth.
Then I was looking at a contour map of the whole area, where it showed circular lines indicating elevation changes, and also indicating bottom topography of the Gulf of Mexico. This included some islands, but I did not perceive which ones they were, as they seemed to be on the edge of the perimeter. My attention was drawn to what looked like a very large volcano to the south and west of Florida. This seemed to be on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. (I continued to see Pat Robertson talking and pointing to this large area, first one place, then another.) Then I seemed to come from a distant viewpoint to actually being in and experiencing what was happening.
As I was drawn into the dream I sensed that the location that I was drawn to, and placed in, was somewhere in what seemed to be south central, or the central region of Arkansas, somewhere in that proximity. Before I was zoomed in to Arkansas I could see, from viewing the map, that magma was very close to the surface of the earth and was causing the rocks and ground to turn red. From Arkansas this phenomena seemed to continue to the east across the northern part of the southern states. However, I was refocused on the immediate area that I had zoomed in on, and it was as if I was physically there. I had gone from being observant to being a participant. I was amongst people with whom I was acquainted, but not closely, and only in the dream. I was observing their behavior toward one another, particularly an elderly couple who seemed to go out of their way to aggravate one another. They seemed to derive pleasure from harassing one another and causing consternation to one another without coming into direct physical conflict.
Somehow, the geographic or volcanic problem became known and this particular place seemed to be a, "hot spot," as the magma came ever closer to the surface. [Then I perceived something that intrigued me; there were Christians living in the area. I knew in my spirit they were there, all through the country!] There seemed to be some confusion as to sound or not to sound the alarm and "scare the hell out of everyone" or to sit tight and hope that it would subside. This is when I became active and moved into the Prophetic realm and begin to Prophetically declare that I could indeed feel the fires of hell coming ever closer. I saw myself do a prophetic dance on a certain spot.
I perceived that there was going to be a major land displacement concerning elevation. (I distinctly perceived that there were some quite large and very rocky hills, or small mountains around us.) In this particular town/city that I was in I did not see a major eruption. This was not a large city, however there were numerous people in the area. The ground appeared to be scorched and magma did break through to the surface and began to ooze forth. When the magma began to ooze forth is when I saw the elevation changes take place all through the southern states and through southern Florida. (During my prophetic declaration and dance I seemed to be right on the very spot that the magma broke forth.) After this I was again observing from my panoramic view of the big screen. Pat Robertson seemed to know about this coming event and seemed to be instructing on it and narrating it. The volcano on the Yucatan Peninsula, was a big one, and seemed to be responsible for all that was happening to the north and east of it.
In the middle 80’s I experienced three separate and different dreams of a nuclear holocaust here in the U.S. However, this is the first dream of this type and that I can ever recall as having. Certainly I will ponder this dream and seek the wisdom and understanding of the Lord concerning it. I do feel that the dream was of Him. As to the meaning of it, as to whether it applies to the physical or spiritual, or both, is yet to be fully realized at this time. I will also seek to get wisdom and understanding from others in the body of Christ, that I feel that I can trust to give considerate and meaningful thought to this rather than ridicule it as so many that I have met, are prone to do. Even so, ridicule and criticism is to be expected when one makes himself or herself available to the Lord for Him to use as He sees fit. With Him as my Lord, I am prepared to get ridicule and criticism at any time and for any thing. To Him be all the glory, all the praise, honor, and adoration! Amen! So Be It!
NOTE: I was reminded of Joel 2:28, but as I scanned the rest of Joel, I realized that most of all of the prophecy of Joel applies. I saw verses in all of Joel that one could apply to this dream. I say all this fully realizing that we are to rightly divide the word of truth, and are to strive to not take any scripture out of context. I do indeed depend on the Holy Spirit for confirmation and interpretation, should this prove to be, or not to be, an authentic dream/vision of the Lord. Amen!
***Update 8/1/2000*** Several weeks after this dream, the Spirit caused me to look at the map of the state of Arkansas and showed me Hot Springs! This city & area seemed to fit into the puzzle…Joseph…
