Here’s the deal.
I had a dream two nights ago.
It was a scary dream.
I have not had a scary dream in a really long time.
I woke up seeing a man standing over me.. It was just the window but I was paralyzed by fear.
The dream started with someone being critical of a movement of God and the second was about witchcraft. Is a critical spirit witchcraft? Maybe, maybe not but thats not why I am writing.
Second part of my dream there was a ton of witchcraft, I will spare you the details but it FREAKED ME OUT AND I WOKE UP.
Right away I starting googling witchcraft because I felt like maybe Ill find something that will give me clarity on to why I had this dream (shot in the dark, I know).
Sure enough I did!
Well it’s October (obvi) and growing up with my sometimes over spiritualizing mother I have always been told that Halloween is evil & bad stuff happens..
So what does that actually mean?
I am by no means an expert on witchcraft & such things but I found out that October is actually a very celebratory month of the witch kind. Halloween is their New Years & they believe the veil between the world of the living and dead is at its thinnest and they interact with the dead.
But more interesting than that I found out one of the largest witchcraft festival is this week. Starting today until Halloween all sorts of celebrations for the spirits are happening. Worshiping the dead, casting spells, chanting, tarot & palm reading.
They are worshiping the spirits & the gods.
Which happen during the night.
Currently: I am leading an outreach to Washington, D.C.
For the first 40 days we have joined with YWAM DC to host a 1,000 hour worship set, we like to call it a “1,000 hour love song to Jesus”.
Our team has the night watch.
We worship Jesus from 1am-7am
I have been so challenged with leading this outreach because more often than not I think..
What are we actually doing?
Most outreaches are feeding the poor, going to the hardest & darkest places, living in slums, healing the sick, really “struggling for Jesus”.
I am in America.
I have a hot shower.
I do not have to eat weird food.
I just have to sleep during the day.
But because of this dream I have had a reality check about what I am actually doing.
Worshiping Jesus is actually worth my time.
He deserves our praises.
All day every day.
If the witches are chanting all night and lifting up their praises to the dead and other weird spirits..
Than I better be
with all that I am
Worshiping the King of Kings & Lord of Lords.
I just feel like so much fuel was added to my fire.
How dare I think so little of what we are doing.
The spiritual realm is real & there is an actual war going on.
We either release heaven or hell onto this earth.
I think my critical spirit was releasing hell.
But I am going to war with the dark forces.
We are taking back the night!

Here we go!
