DREAM OF UNPRECEDENTED FAVOR + THE RAMAPOUGH TRIBE 3/5
In a dream last night, God spoke to me about a wave of unprecedented favor being released over his people. In the dream, the Lord came up behind my shoulder and spoke to me as He did to Moses and said, I’m going to show you myself and the manifestation of my favor. As I turned around, expecting to glimpse God, He was no longer there. Confused, I waited. Suddenly, I saw an aircraft. As the aircraft passed by, a latch in the bottom of the aircraft opened, and I watched as God’s blessings poured out of the aircraft. God said, “this is my favor. I’m ready to release it.”
This is the scripture that came to me in the dream:
“I will bless my people and their homes around my holy hill. And in the proper season I will send the showers they need. There will be showers of blessing.” Ezekiel 34:26
God sets His people apart by displaying His favor for them; it is the way that He marks a person or people. In Exodus 33:16-17, Moses asks God to display His favor and go with them. He asks, “How will How else will we be distinguished from all the other people on the face of the earth?” In other words, how do I know that we are special to you, that we are set apart? God replies to Moses, “This very thing that you have spoken I will do, for you have found favor in my sight, and I know you by name.”
Basically, Moses had earned favor with God. He knew Moses by name; they had relationship. They had mutual trust. Favor can open doors that no man can open! Favor with God can do things for you that no amount of influence, money, social status, or special skills can do for you. God’s favor will shut the mouth of every enemy! Favor with God will take you all the way into your promise!
I decree a season of unprecedented favor over you; let every demonic hindrance be shattered by the word of the Lord and every held back blessing be released in the name of Jesus! Let the blessings of God rain down; release your showers of blessing over your body!
FAVOR FOR THE RAMAPOUGH
In this same dream, the Lord spoke to me about a tribe of Native Americans in New Jersey. Specifically, the name Ramapough was spoken. In the dream I asked, “What or who is Ramapough?” And the voice responded, “They are a tribe of Native Americans in New Jersey.” I had not heard of this tribe before. I believe that there is a connection between favor and this tribe.
This is what the spirit of the Lord would say to this tribe:
God will release His favor on the Ramapough (Lenape) people - there will be physical demonstrations of favor for this people: favor with man, and favor with government. There is a gift that he is extending to this tribe: recognition with government and restoration of years of tension, disappointment, and struggle. He will exchange your tears of mourning for tears of joy. Fruitfulness and increase will be poured out over the land. You will receive the petitions you have brought forth, which have been rejected for decades; justice will be released for you and your lineage will be villified, and the future of your people will be secured. God would say to you: “Watch and see what I will do for you!” The love of God will be displayed on behalf of this people and will enact healing for the tribe.
It’s interesting that the Lord gave me the scripture on the earlier portion of the dream (Ezekiel 34:26) because many of the Ramapough people originally come from and reside near the Ramapo mountain in New Jersey. I believe the Lord is saying that He will bless this tribe, their homes, and their mountain! He will release His showers of blessing!
In addition to this outpouring of blessings, there will be an invitation to this tribe to encounter the love of God and a beckoning to ascend the mountain of the Lord. The fire of the Holy Spirit will be made manifest to this nation! I decree a release of favor and blessing upon this tribe, that God would manifest His justice, and encounter them with His fiery love!
God has chosen this people as a sign and a wonder! He desires to uplift the Lenape people; to consume them with the fire of His love.
Brothers and sisters, pray this word through with me! Declare with me that the Ramapough tribe would be officially recognized by our nation’s government as a first nations tribe!
