America – Your Covering Is Gone

Journal Entry: Dream
Date 4/19/2011

I was at an outside speaking engagement seated in the front row in a aisle chair just to the right of the platform. Behind the podium President Obama was addressing a large audience with his ideology about debt, health care, and America’s future role in the world and so forth.

political speekDirectly above the president was the remains of an old weathered wooden frame awning. Only the outside boards around the top and wooden posts at each corner. The awning swayed back and forth in the light breeze ready to fall any moment. I wanted to warn the president the wooden frame could fall on him and injure him, but I did not have access to him due to the secret service.

At the end of the speech, president Obama pulled out a large silver bowl filled with green leaves, which from a distance resembled a tossed salad. He took his hand and turned the leaves over and over preparing them to be served to the audience. There were a dozen or so workers stood which stood in front of the platform each with a silver bowl filled with green leaves. They turned the leaves over and over just like president Obama. President Obama then instructed the people all stand to their feet. I and a young boy to my right just remained seated. In fact we had not even noticed everyone was standing.

President Obama instructed the workers to take their silver bowls and serve the audience as he told us that this was good for us. He instructed everyone to trust him and put the leaves in their mouth, chew and swallow and not to question him about it. It was the right thing to do.

A worker came to me first and put the silver bowl in front of me and offered me the green leaves which did not appear to be edible at all. The leaves appeared to be ragweed leaves instead of lettuce. Ragweed is bitter to the taste and not edible. I looked across the aisle to see if other people were eating this junk and sure enough the audience in the first three rows was trying to, but not without choking and gagging on it first. I picked up three leaves from the bowl and looked at the texture. The texture was that of a rag and when I imagined trying to swallow a rag, I gagged. I knew I just could not swallow this.

Journal Entry End –


In the dream president Obama represents America and himself. Serving the green leaves (ragweed) shows how bitter his message really is and that it is not good for this country. No matter how much spin is placed on the message by him or the media, It is not correct for our country or pleasing to God. The message was spoken in a way that sounded good to some listeners but when it is actually put into law it will be bitter (ragweed) and difficult to swallow for the nation. Other names for ragweed are bitterweed or bloodweed. Regardless how many times he and his staff tossed the green leaves it was still bitter which made it hard to swallow.  He believed that serving the green leaves in a silver bowl would fool the people into eating the bitter ragweed. In this dream the silver represents something admired and sought after.  Many people buy into everything Obama speaks. In politics it’s all about how you package the message more than substance. This applies to politicians on both sides of the aisle regardless if they are republican and democrat.

ragweedThe few awning boards that remained above the platform represent the covering over the United States, which God placed above this great nation during its inception is now gone. The awning had once been a significant structure at one time, protecting all those who were under it. However, due to neglect and deliberate dismantling, the structure had deteriorated to the point that it no longer served as a covering.  God’s divine protection over this nation has been removed due to our neglect of the things of God. 

The events which took place on September 11, 2001, happened when God allowed an opening in the covering for the enemy to slip in and attack our nation.  This served as a warning shot across our bow to get our attention.  Indeed, it caused many to turn to God for protection, but shortly afterwards, as a nation we returned to our evil ways. Hurrican Katrina in 2005 was another catastrophic event which rocked the nation for awhile but once again America ignored God’s judgment. In the dream president Obama did not recognize the condition of the awning, nor did the audience. The way the awning swayed with the gentlest of breezes indicates just how close we to a major event happening to this country.

The world is experiencing birth pangs of the end of days. The world economy is close to collapse and with the slightest of breezes we could see a full blown monetary system meltdown. The United States is in a debt crisis and for the first time in our history on April 18, 2011 was downgraded in credit ratings by Standards & Poor’s with an “negative outlook”. By the condition of the awning I do not feel like it will be very long before we see catastrophic events in this nation which will not only rock our nation but the world. The recent events in Japan show how a nation can be rocked in just a few moments and how much suffering the Japanese people are sufferning right now.

We need to pray for our president, leadership and our nation to repent and turn to God, but there is little time left. Just making political speeches will not restore the covering, only repentance.  I feel this nation will return back to its roots as a Christian nation but only after we suffer great difficulties which humble us and bring us to our knees before God.

America, your covering is gone!
