Jonathan Welton recently had a dream in which he saw three immensely strong demons whispering in the ear of Kim Jong-Un, the North Korean dictator. These demons all had names beginning with the letter A: Arrogance, Autarch (which means absolute supreme ruler) and Ancestral momentum. All three were pressing in on King Jong-Un, seeking to goad him into action.
In the dream it was clear that the Lord intends to send heavenly forces to defuse the power of this assault – and to cause Kim to receive dreams from God that will terrify him, in very much the same way that King Nebuchadnezzar had dreams which caused him to wake up in a cold sweat and to come to his senses.
The dreams that God sends are a crucial part of His plan to deliver him from the demonic powers that were besetting him, so that angelic powers of humility and servant leadership can be released.
There is nothing in the least bit inevitable about the successful working out of this vision – but it does give us a hopeful avenue to pursue in prayer.
How wonderful it would be if Kim Jong-Un could reach the place that Nebuchadnezzar himself finally came to in Daniel 4:3, 34–37.
As Angela McGill declared, “Not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit,” says the Lord. Birth pangs of Messiah are coming on this region of the world!”
