This article is regarding the September 8, 2020 dream of Pastor Coverstone. It is the dream about the Statue of Liberty, whom he refers to as Lady Liberty. The link is found below.

In his dream, the Statue of Liberty is struck by lightning, hit in the face with debris, and then mercilessly attacked and murdered by greedy mercenaries who are paid in silver. Throughout the attack she defends the Declaration of Independence and her torch with all her might, losing three spikes in her crown, and eventually falling to her knees. In her defiance–her eyes were ablaze with defiance–, she calls for help from those whom she had helped in the past, but none came to assist or defend her. After an intense struggle, the mercenaries overpower her, lop off her torch hand, cover her mouth, tie her other hand behind her back, and drag her out to sea where they ram her twice and drown her. It is a violent dream of a violent death of Lady Liberty. And the closing scene depicts flashing lightning and an ever darkening storm brooding over the harbor ready to unleash its fury.

Pastor Coverstone was deeply distressed by this dream, more so than all of his other dreams, because of what this symbolizes: the death of America. Just like most of us, he felt that America would always be here; that our kids and grandkids would grow up in a free nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all. This dream, however, spells the demise of America, and all the goodness and godliness for which she used to stand.

As a patriotic American, it is easy to root for Lady Liberty as she fights and wrestles and stands valiantly to the end. That fight and self-reliance is truly American in every sense of the word.

Nevertheless, as I listened, I noted two very troubling things that are more troubling than her violent death. Did any of you notice it too? Did any of you hear it too? So, what troubled me more? Her defiance and the fact that she did not cry out to God. Why is that more troubling? She was defiant as opposed to repentant, which is demonstrated in the fact that she did not call out to God for help, but instead called out to other nations. She did not repent, which is demonstrated in the fact that she stood proudly and fought in her own strength, not God’s. She called out to other nations for help and not God. And when the filth of the nation that she protects hit her in the face, it caused her to topple.

Before I continue, I must say this. America is a miracle. This nation is a miracle. Without God’s blessing, we would not have ever been a nation. I have studied American history since my youth, and stand in awe of this nation’s history. I love our founding, our founding fathers and mothers, our precious heritage. It is because of God, that America was born. Alexis de Tocqueville said that America’s goodness was the cause of her greatness, and her goodness was rooted in her churches. When she would cease to be good, she would cease to be great. In other words, America’s demise would come when she would forget God, and for no other reason and at no other time.

This Coverstone dream undeniably, more so than any of the other dreams, is all about God’s judgment of America. Why? Unrepentant defiance and unrepentant reliance herself and on other nations instead of God. God hates this. He hated it in Israel, and He hates it still. Israel was sent into captivity for it, the land was devastated and many were killed by the sword and famine because of it. All you need do is read the Bible to see how God handles it when His own people forget Him. Nothing else could take out America, but God.

And indeed, America and the American Church has forgotten the very God that birthed them and protected them and empowered them. For years they have been consumed with consumerism, vacationing and greed and pleasure seeking while the blood of the unborn cried out, while science and doctors played God, while marriage was defiled by premarital sex and homosexuality and other types of demonic orgies, and while violence plagued our minds and hearts via movies and tv shows. Oh, but Americans have cried “don’t touch our golden calf! Don’t tell me what do or what to watch or not to watch or what to think or how to feel! Don’t you dare to judge me!” And Such words rang from sea to shining sea and from church to church around the nation. So, because America defiantly refused the judgment of God’s word over their lives, the judgment of God is about to be poured out on this nation.

Do we doubt that God does things like this? Do we really think that He is a sugar daddy in the sky that will wink at sin forever? Do you think that He doesn’t care? Do we think that He doesn’t see? Have we forgotten the holiness and justice of God?

Here are just a few instances when actually God sold His own people, His own nation in to the hands of evil. Did you get that? He SOLD them!!!!!!!!

Judges 2:14-15, “14And the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel. So He delivered them into the hands of plunderers who despoiled them; and He sold them into the hands of their enemies all around, so that they could no longer stand before their enemies. 15Wherever they went out, the hand of the Lord was against them for calamity, as the Lord had said, and as the Lord had sworn to them. And they were greatly distressed.”

First Samuel 12:9, “9And when they forgot the Lord their God, He sold them into the hand of Sisera, commander of the army of Hazor, into the hand of the Philistines, and into the hand of the king of Moab; and they fought against them.”

Jeremiah 34:1-3, “1The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, when Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and all his army, all the kingdoms of the earth under his dominion, and all the people, fought against Jerusalem and all its cities, saying, 2“Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: ‘Go and speak to Zedekiah king of Judah and tell him, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall burn it with fire. 3And you shall not escape from his hand, but shall surely be taken and delivered into his hand; your eyes shall see the eyes of the king of Babylon, he shall speak with you face[a] to face, and you shall go to Babylon.’ ” ’

And this was not a surprise. God did not just spring judgment on Israel. He always warns first. He always calls to repentance first. Israel had promised to follow Him and abide by His covenant, and they had broken it. In Deuteronomy 28 God made sure they knew and understood the consequences of turning from Him and the covenant that they swore to follow, in order to walk in their own ways instead of in His ways.

God’s message through these dreams is not a feel good message, nor is it a mere slap on the hand. This is not about storing up food so that we can endure in the mountains or be left alone in our homes. This is not about buying a gun so that we can kill something for food or so that we can go down fighting. What is coming to America very swiftly and very soon is not just a warning this time. For years, God has given the nation of America warning after warning after warning already, including the harbingers that Jonathan Cahn laid out in his books The Harbinger and The Harbinger II and others. The warnings have been sent via prophets such as David Wilkerson of Times Square Church in New York, and are being spoken even now in churches like Jimmy Swaggart’s church Family Worship Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. And most powerfully, the warnings have been sent in God’s word into every household of America. But, America has not listened. America has not repented. America has not called on God. America has not wept between the porch and the altar. But instead, America hardened her heart, grew more stubborn in her ways while clutching tightly to freedom and her rights, and pursued happiness instead of God. America forgot God, and thus, America is ripe for judgment.

God is in the storm of this dream. Indeed, when it comes to pestilence and storms, God is in the whirlwind (Job 28:1), and God said, “When I…send pestilence…” (2 Chronicles 7:13), God sent the plagues of Egypt (Exodus), He touches the earth and it melts (Amos 9), “He covers His hands with lightning, And commands it to strike,” (Job 36:32), and God sent a plague to Israel and wiped out 70,000 men (2 Samuel 24), He is the Lord of the weather (Job 26, 36-38), “His brightness was like the light; He had rays flashing from His hand, and there His power was hidden,” (Habakkuk 3:4), He stirs up the stormy wind (Psalm 107:25), and His glory thunders (Psalm 29:3), and list goes on indefinitely. Is not Jesus the same yesterday, today and forever? (Hebrews 13). Behold He is God and changes not (Malachi 3:6).

The meaning of this dream is stark. The meaning of this dream is clear. And the only way out of it for America is to remember God and repent like wicked Nineveh in the book of Jonah. Repentance and a returning to God is America’s only hope.
