“There Is a War Over Our Destiny – Let Faith Arise!”

“There Is a War Over Our Destiny – Let Faith Arise!” by Alane Haynes for Elijah List

Some years ago, I had a profound dream that I know was from the Lord; it was very surreal and prophetic. He has been impressing upon me to share it, as it will help many who are in transition. The dream had five distinct segments, each revealing transitions in the journey of fulfilling our destiny, as we are led by the Holy Spirit.

A Dream of Transition

The first part of the dream was black and white. I was on a mountain, crouching against bare boulders. I didn’t realize how high I was until airplanes began flying next to me. They were solid, gray, and looked like fighter planes. They kept coming closer, one after another, until they were nearly brushing me. The noise and wind from the planes was intense.

I realized I was holding a baby, and it seemed the planes were trying to attack us. I was aware, in the dream, that it was a situation where I could go into fear, but I was not afraid; I knew I was protected. I began looking for the way of escape.

I turned and faced what seemed to be a wall of boulders. As I looked closely, I saw a weather-beaten door. It was almost like an optical illusion of a small shed blending into the boulders. The wood was as gray and textured as the rocks; a person not looking for or expecting a way of escape would have missed it. I opened the door and saw a dark stairway descending to a basement. The walls were earthen and the steps were worn and unpainted. I descended down the stairs to another door.

I opened the door to a brightly illuminated room of pure white. The left side of the room was furnished with a sink and toilet. On the right, there was what seemed to be a window in the floor – a rectangular frame of white wood encompassing the most beautiful shade of azure blue water I had ever seen. It was very surreal; I felt a strong allure to jump in and swim into another realm.

My senses were very alert; I was strongly protective of the baby. I looked closer and saw that what had seemed like water was actually a thick, gel-like substance that could be a toxic chemical. I discerned it was an illusion meant to intrigue and lead people into danger.

I then turned and saw an open wall into space with paving stones that seemed to be floating. I had no fear and walked forward. Immediately, I was in a house with many rooms. The colors were subdued earth tones; the lighting was dim and shadowy. Each room was filled with people that I knew from ministries I had been involved with in recent years. They were all engaged in quiet conversation and minimal activity. They were people I could relate to and had ministered with, but none of these relationships were intimate or deep. I felt a need to change my clothes, but every room was full. I sensed I did not belong there and knew it was time to move on.

Immediately, I was in another location, and no longer carrying the baby. I was outdoors on a sidewalk. It was dusk but the colors were vibrant, and there was a palpable excitement in the air. There were a lot of people engaging with each other in an animated fashion. I was as well, although I did not know any of them. As I was talking, I realized I was standing next to a bicycle and knew it was mine. I wondered why it was there and how I would get it home, as there would have to be a vehicle large enough to carry it. I thought about riding it home, but knew it was too far and not what was supposed to happen. I was certain that all would be made clear when necessary.

I woke up and immediately heard, “You have to leave the bicycle behind.”

Interpretation (Part 1): The War Over Destiny – Let Faith Arise!

I nearly always dream in color. Whenever I dream in black and white, it represents very clear opposites; in this case, faith versus fear. The baby represents what we have birthed or what we are carrying to be birthed for the Kingdom – our destinies! There are seeds of destiny that God has placed in you, brought to life by His Spirit…things ordained before the world was formed. It is time for them to come forth!
