Dream of Famine
by Jim Rowh
After reading the posting of urgency to prepare I know now is the time to release a dream given to me by the Lord while I was in Costa Rica ministering to the Cabecar indigenous people last April 09. The Lord downloaded prophetic dreams into me every night I was in the remote jungle with those precious people. Dream of famine to come: Part 1, A large black horse, it looked like a Percheron stallion, came out with a rider on its back holding a balance scale in his hand. I immediately recognized it as the black horse of Rev.6:5 and when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat upon him had a pair of balances in his hand. v6 and I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three measures of barley for a denarius, and do not hurt the wine or the oil. Immediately after I identified the black horse and the rider, the horse reared up and threw the rider off. Part two of the dream: I was standing in front of a dough roller, like what is used in pizza kitchens to roll out pizza crusts. Long chains of dough were coming out of the roller, and I was helping to pull them out as I was standing about 5 feet away in front of the machine. All of a sudden, the long chains of dough began to break into short pieces and fall to the ground in front of me. I reached out and tried to catch them as they fell to the ground, but I could not catch them. The Lord brought to my recollection the peanut factory in Georgia that had been shut down for sending out contaminated peanut products causing many to be recalled. Third part of dream: I was showing some people my flour mill which is on my farm. We were standing watching the mill grind flour and blow it up into the sifter.
Interpretation of the dream: Part 1, scarcity of food and hyperinflation will make food extremely hard to obtain and very expensive. Currently wheat can be purchased locally for about five dollars per bushel, a sixty pound measure. A quart of wheat for a denarius, a day's wage, will mean that prices and availability will put the price of it out of most people's reach. The rider with scales being thrown off means that balance will be out of control, chaos will reign, there will be no order. A horse that throws his rider is out of control. Scarcity could come from many directions, including drought, pestilence, blight in the seed, chaos in the cities, terrorism, or natural disasters. Part 2, The Lord is saying the food chain is going to break. The food chain in America is built upon trucking food far from its point of production to its point of consumption, and it all depends on just in time delivery. The stores will be easily and quickly be cleaned out. Disruption of the chain will be the order of the day, there are many break points along the chain that will be easily broken and the chain will break. When the chain breaks, part three will become reality. Part 3, local production of food will also be the order of the day. The mill we were standing in front of mills about 300 pounds of wheat flour per hour, the Lord was saying get ready to mill. Home production and local food supply systems will be the only reliable source of food. Get your gardens going, your food preserved, grains set aside, and local production facilities ramped up. You will need it! Final note. This is not just about self preservation. Prov. 11:24 There is that scattereth, and yet increases; and there is that withholds more than is meet, but it tend to poverty v25 the liberal soul shall be made fat, and he that watereth shall be watered himself, v26 He that witholds corn, the people shall curse him; but blessing shall be upon him that selleth it. I will be posting more dreams this week concerning the days ahead.
God bless you, in Jesus name,
