On April 12, 2020, the author had a dream in which he saw terrible judgment coming on those who are part of a false church system. Flee while you still can!

God’s Judgment on the Counterfeit Church

On April 12, 2020, I had a dream in which I saw strange fire in my father’s house. This dream is not about my earthly father, because when I had the dream, my earthly father had already been in heaven for 20 years. Also, his house had been sold at the time of his death and was not in our possession. This dream must refer to something else besides my earthly father’s house.

In Ephesians 2:19, the people of God are referred to as the “household of God”. They are also referred to as the “house of God” in 1 Timothy 3:15 and 1 Peter 4:17. They are also referred to as the “household of faith” in Galatians 6:10. Therefore, I do not think this dream is about a building at all, but rather a group of people who identify as being Christian.

The entire context of the dream seems to suggest that it is about actual Christians, or people who think they are Christians, being involved in a church that seems to be Christian, but which in reality is not Christian at all. In other words, there is some deception at work.

In order to understand this deception, I would like to describe what the strange fire actually looked like. What I saw were hovering balls of fire. They were about 6 feet in the air, and they were these little balls of fire, perhaps a foot in diameter, and they were simply hovering in the house.

This strange fire caught my attention, and I knew that it was very dangerous. The fact that this fire was not in the fireplace (of which there was a very big one in my father’s house), meant that the fire was not where it was supposed to be. This is very plain and simple from the dream. Normally fire is at ground level. But this fire was raised up. Normally, fire was in the fire place. But this was not in the fireplace. Normally, fire had a source, either gas or wood. But this fire appeared to have no source at all. If it was not powered by a natural source, how was it powered? What was God telling me? He was telling me that something was wrong in this house. Something was very wrong among these people. Strange fire was in their midst.

If the source of this fire was not natural, meaning there was no gas or wood to fuel it, then the source must have been supernatural. Alarm bells should be ringing, because what I saw was very wrong. This seems to be pointing towards demonic deception in the church.

Now, let me tell you a little bit more about this house, so you will understand how critical and dire the situation was. First, although it was clearly my father’s house in the dream, my father was not in the house, but he was in the house down the road. This sounds like Samson when the Spirit of God had departed from him. For Samson, who was called of God, had disobeyed God. Therefore, the Spirit of God departed from him, but he did not know it. This sounds like a lot of churches today. They were originally called by God. But somewhere along the line, the devil moved in, as they replaced their theology with doctrines of demons. They got caught up with pleasing men, rather than pleasing the Lord, and they took a big turn in the wrong direction. This has happened to many churches. Could it be that God is speaking to me about many churches that have gone astray?

The fact that my father, in the dream, was not in the house, is very symbolic. What could this mean? My father is simply an analogy to God, who is also called the heavenly father. This means that God had either left these people or that he was never there to begin with. I have a feeling that since in the dream this really was my father’s house, that it is more likely that these are people that once had God’s favor and were obedient to him, but lost it through disobedience (like Samson).

This also happened to the nation of Israel. They once had God’s favor, and the Spirit of God filled the temple. But at a certain point, the Spirit of God left the temple. Then, enemies eventually moved in, and the temple, and the entire surrounding district, was destroyed. As you know, the people were also carried away into exile. Yes, judgment gets very serious.

I believe this dream is a dream in which God is warning of impending judgment. If you keep reading, you will see many more reasons why I believe this is the case. I believe you will see that God is saying that there are some people who are currently very much in danger of being judged very severely. This judgment actually comes from God, and not man. It is a divine judgment and it is coming upon these particular churches and God is calling people out of these churches, so that people are not caught up in the judgment. However, which churches are they, really?

Before I share what I think are some tell tale signs of these churches, I would like to talk about the whole principle of judgment. A long time ago, when Moses was leading the children of Israel, there were some very bad people, Korah and his group, who rebelled against God. God became very angry with them, and told Moses he was going to judge them harshly. God was going to do a new thing. God told Moses to warn the people who were nearby, so they would not be consumed in the judgment. The people needed to stand back! Moses said,

“Depart, please, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest you be consumed in all their sins!” (See Numbers 16:26)

God then did a brand new thing and swallowed Korah and his people alive. For we read,

“As he finished speaking all these words, the ground that was under them split apart. The earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up with their households, all of Korah’s men, and all their goods. So they, and all that belonged to them went down alive into Sheol. The earth closed on them, and they perished from among the assembly.” (Numbers 16:31-33)

This then is a good example of some people who were called to be God’s people and who really did have God, originally but were in rebellion against God, and who were judged for it. Obviously, this is very serious, and we do not want to get ourselves into this situation.

In the dream, I warned the people who were in the house, and some were my family members. In fact, I actually saw my two daughters in the dream. I warned them, and they got out of the house. Does this represent my actual daughters? Actually, no. We know this for at least three reasons. First, the house was my father’s house, but it did not actually represent my father’s house in real life. It represented the household of God. Second, the strange fire was symbolic and did not represent real fire, but rather something that was very wrong. For this reason, it is quite certain that my two daughters in the dream do not represent my actual daughters.

Another reason they do not represent my actual daughters (meaning my earthly family members) is because there were also people in the house that were not from my earthly family at all. Thus, the people in the dream that I was warning seem to represent those individuals who, today, have either strayed from God’s original path, or perhaps were never on it to begin with. The imagery of “family,” however, leads me to believe that these people are genuine believers who have gotten caught up in some system, organization, ministry, or church, that has led them off the path into deception. There is a lot of that these days.

I pleaded with my two daughters, and the others, to do something because the fire was beginning to rage (meaning, judgment was already at hand). Initially, they did not pay any attention to me. They just ignored me. I realized that the place was going to be consumed by fire if no one took any action, so I searched for some water, but I found none! I could not find even a single drop of water in that place! What does water represent? In the Bible, we read:

“In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:37-38)

Notice how Jesus supplies living water. But in this dream, there was not even a single drop of water in the entire house. This is how ready some places are for judgment. For when the wood is dry, it ignites very easily. I already mentioned that my father was not in the house, so this simply reinforces the fact that God was not in any way “in this”. This strange fire was not from him, and neither God the Father, nor Jesus the Son, nor the Holy Spirit, was in this house.

This obviously is a very serious dream of warning. When I first pleaded with the people, I was ignored to such an extent that my daughter completely ignored me and talked with her friend on the phone about the weather or about something like a new pair of shoes at some store. This highlights the superficiality of some people (who claim to be believers) who do not take God’s word seriously at all. These people may, in fact, not even be saved, and need a wake up call. You might say, these might be false converts. A false convert is someone who thinks they know God, because they once confessed Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. However, they are not at all living for God in the present. They have a false sense of security, thinking that all is well. However, if they were to die tonight, they would go straight to hell.

There are a lot of preachers who preach an easy salvation, that is not based in Scripture. They say, trust in Jesus and you will be saved. But they fail to mention anything about repentance. Such people may tacitly believe in Jesus, but not really be servants of his at all. They can go sin in the evening, and attend church in the morning, without any conviction whatsoever. Jesus said, “unless you repent, you will all perish” (see Luke 13:3), so repentance from sin (turning away from sin) is a very important part of the gospel message. God saves us by his grace, but he does not save the person who is not serious. If you do not repent, you are not serious and are therefore hell bound.

To some alleged Christians, the most important thing is their hair style, or the latest fashion. They are completely absorbed in the world, even as Lot’s wife was caught up in her gardening, or her fashion contest that she regretted not being able to attend, as she was being dragged away from Sodom into a place of safety! She looked back, thinking, “What have I just lost?!” and then gave up her life in the process. What did Jesus say? “Remember Lot’s wife!” (see Luke 17:32)

Fortunately, in the dream, my two daughters eventually got out of that place before judgment hit. This is sounding more and more like Sodom and Gomorrah all the time, since in the dream, my two daughters made it out, and I knew my wife was there, but I never saw her in the dream, and so I never did see her make it out to safety, either, like my two daughters did. This is a symbolic dream. It is not about my literal wife and two daughters. It is a spiritual analogy. Is God speaking here?

Rescued By The Hand

There was also one or two individuals in the dream, who were presented to me as being individuals who had Down’s Syndrome. The picture is that they needed assistance in order to make it out of that place that was under judgment. And there are many people like that in today’s church, or false church, that need assistance in getting out of those places. It is just like we read in the case of Lot and his wife and his two daughters, they needed assistance because the judgment was coming! That is why the two angels (described as “men” in the following passage) took them by the hand.

When the morning came, then the angels hurried Lot, saying, “Get up! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the iniquity of the city.” But he lingered; and the men grabbed his hand, his wife’s hand, and his two daughters’ hands, Yahweh being merciful to him; and they took him out, and set him outside of the city. (Genesis 19:15-16)

Notice that there were two angels, having four hands total, and there were four people to be rescued. God will provide the assistance that is needed, but how if I told you that you are the assistance that God has provided for many people today who are trapped in these institutions that are teaching lies, in which people need to be rescued? Would you go ahead and rescue them? Because that is what you are being called to do!

In this dream, these individuals who looked like they had Down’s Syndrome were incapable of getting out on their own and needed assistance. I think I remember seeing at least two of them, but at the end of the dream, before the judgment hit, there was one man in particular who was highlighted, probably because he is a type of a person who needs to be rescued and each of us has the capacity to help at least one person! This man did not have the capacity to make it out on his own. So I grabbed him, and with his legs wrapped around my waist, carried him and took him out of there. This man could not even walk out of there, so desperate was his situation. This man is symbolic of many people who need to be proverbially carried out of these places. Please help them, and get them out of there!

That reminds me of what we read in Jude,

“And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.” (Jude 1:23)

If you did not pull these people out of the fire, they would perish. The man whom I carried out did not resist. He simply needed help. And he welcomed my help. I am not saying to fight hard against someone who is resisting you. I’m saying, there are many people who desperately need your assistance, who will receive it, if you will but offer it. Do you not think they are even waiting for you to help them? Many are! Do not think that there are not many people who are crying themselves to sleep each night, hoping that someone will come along to rescue them from the misery that they are currently in. Because those people do exist. But you need to find them. And you have the resources, too, to be able to do that.

Otherwise, if those people are not crying themselves to sleep each night, their parents or other loved ones are, as they plead for them to be rescued. Their parents or other loved ones might not be able to reach them, because they are not even located in that same district. And they may not even know where they are. But you, being right next door, can! You might even work in the office or alongside that person, or meet that person every day in your daily affairs. Is that the person that you see at the bus stop each day? Or maybe it’s the person who is standing in line ahead of you, or just behind you, at the grocery store. Someone’s son or daughter is right there, in your life, virtually every day, or every week, to be reasoned with, or to be pulled out of that raging fire which will consume them if they do not get out.

In the case of Jude, here we have a picture of someone who is desperately in need of salvation. He hardly knows what to do, and if you simply told him (verbally), he would not do it, probably because he is confused and has heard many different conflicting messages in his life. So he needs an extra touch. He needs someone to physically come alongside him and help him to get out of there. Secretly, inside, he is saying, “Thank you!” Even if the words do not come from his lips (just yet). Some of this will require that you intercede and pray for lost ones who desperately need to see a spiritual victory in their lives. You may be their only hope! That is why before leaving the house in the morning, or before going about your regular duties for the day, you kneel and plead with the Lord in prayer.

You need to persist. You need to literally grab that person and yank him out of there, for his own sake! Spare that man! Spare that woman! Spare that child, who is being abused by godless teachings in a sinful and adulterous generation. Spare them! This picture is interesting, because these people are like those people of Niveveh, who did not know their left from their right. It’s a picture of total confusion. For we read God’s word to Jonah,

“And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?” (Jonah 4:11)

If you know the story of Jonah, you will know that God commanded Jonah to preach against the sin of Nineveh. Today, we have sin all over the place. This sin is outside the church, and even among many who think they are inside the church. This place that was called my father’s house in the dream, we know that my heavenly father was not actually in that house. Yet it was my father’s house in the sense that these people evidently called themselves believers in the Lord. There are many people who call themselves believers in the Lord, yet they do not know the Lord. Their version of Christianity is not real Christianity.

Strange Fires

This dream is interesting, because it highlights a particular sin, which is the sin of these strange fires. A “strange fire” is something that God “had not commanded”, and we read about it in the book of Leviticus:

Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer, and put fire in it, and laid incense on it, and offered strange fire before Yahweh, which he had not commanded them. Fire came out from before Yahweh, and devoured them, and they died before Yahweh. (Leviticus 10:1-2)

Who were Nadab and Abihu? They were priests of God who disobeyed God. I think this “strange fire” which God showed me is symbolic of those who are leaders in the church (even as Nadab and Abihu were leaders in God’s service back in Moses’s day), but who are in rebellion against God. They are lighting “strange” fires in the midst of the people. They are doing things that God did not command them to do. This is serious. If no one challenges it, and if correction is not made, then God’s judgment will fall.

I had this dream about a day after discovering that a counterfeit minister of the gospel existed in South Africa, whose name is Alph Lukau. Mr. Lukau claims to be a minister of the gospel, who performs outstanding miracles, but he was caught in a gross lie, pretending to “raise the dead.” The actor who played the “dead man” did not do a very good job, and was seen breathing heavily well before the resurrection scene.

Mr. Lukau has performed many other “miracles” in the past, and people have come forward saying that he paid them to say such and such during his meetings. Furthermore, in my opinion, he is almost certainly using a spirit to help him perform one of his miracles in which he can tell you the names of your children as well as their birthdates. This can be easily be done by someone who is working with a familiar spirits, since familiar spirits know all of these details. Regardless of how he does the trick, Mr. Lukau was exposed as a fraud, even though he continues on this day. However, God will not be mocked, and judgment will indeed come upon Mr. Lukau sooner or later. But for the sake of those involved in this counterfeit ministry, or any other counterfeit ministry, I would advise them to leave it while they still can.

Strange fire may not include counterfeit miracles in all circumstances, but it certainly does include counterfeit miracles. The fact that the balls of hovering fire were self-powered suggests supernal power, so in other words, demonic origin. Nevertheless, let us not forget that even doctrines themselves can have demonic origin. Even if a person stages a miracle, which is not in fact a miracle, even without the use of a spirit to assist you, you are still using deception, and that in itself is the devil’s business, and it is still “strange fire” by this definition.

I will end with a couple of final comments. When I had this dream, the devastation I saw (in terms of the fire of God’s judgment falling) was so tremendous, not only did the entire building (my father’s house in the dream) burn to the ground, but after I woke up, I was left trembling for 5 days. It was very serious.

In no uncertain terms was God telling me that he was going to judge this strange fire among his people, the judgment was total and it was devastating. So if you are involved in any Christian organization, church, ministry, people, or group but they are operating in anything that is deceptive at all, take heed. This judgment is definitely coming. And when it comes, it is going to be full devastation.
