This dream along with the Franklin dream and the Church and State dream go together. The best interpretation is understood when the 3 are combined. After all, America is being shaken by God as a whole and the world with it resulting is the U.S. no longer being a Republic (Franklin dream); America is being shaken financially, legally, and spiritually (plumb line dream). And though the Church is being shaken, even internally divided, the gates of hell via the halls of congress/legislation will not prevail against the Church (church/state dream). For though God is shaking the Church, it is NOT for our destruction but for our good, for He disciplines those He loves. This discipline is not from the world nor from anything that the evil one is devising. Rather, it is from God. For, He is coming back for a Bride without spot, wrinkle or blemish, unpolluted and unadulterated, but the Bride must be washed with the water of His word. And His word brings conviction of sin, and calls us back to holiness and to our first love (Jesus), as well as to the first works of loving one another even as Christ commanded. This is the succinct meaning of this dream.
Furthermore, God has measured via His plumb line of His perfect law, both our U.S. financial and legislative realms, and both have been found wanting. Thus, it is time for His hands-on adjustment. As He does so, Wall Street and the Capitol are rendered immobile, for they have neither honored nor glorified Him in their deals and may not continue in their ways. When He removes His sandal at the Capitol building, this may very well have to do with the Jewish custom of removing a sandal during legal transactions such as in the book of Ruth. When one removed their sandal it finalized the deal, and set in motion the agreement. God has removed His sandal, and has set in motion this act of judgment over a system of government that at one time had honored Him but now no longer does. Because of this, they will be rendered immobile and unproductive.
When He comes to the Church in the dream, He does not use the plumb line. Why? Because we as the body of Christ are not under the Old Testament law and thus are not measured by its standard. We are under the law of Christ, the cover of His blood, the blood of a new covenant. Any who are not under Christ’s blood are judged by the Old Testament law, and thus, Wall Street and the Capitol who are not under the blood of Christ’s covenant are judged by the Old Testament law. However, the Bride/Body of Christ/Church are approached without use of the plumb line.
The shaking of the Church that is ensuing and will be ensuing more potently very soon will be of God’s hands, not anyone else’s. And though Coverstone seems to think that this means persecution from outside the Church, from the tone of this dream and others he’s had, this does not seem to be the case. In this plumb line dream, what happened, happened inside the Church. It seems that what is coming upon Wall Street and the seat of our government in D.C., will shake believers who have believed along with Job’s comforters (of the Biblical book of Job) that God’s blessing means prosperity, special favor, and positions of power. The soon coming collapse of our financial system and government/legal system will cause many so-called Christians to abandon the Church.
Moreover, this likely call to holiness and the falling of Holy Spirit’s conviction upon the Body of Christ will cause many believers to be offended. After all, the truth is a stumbling block to those who will not be set free by it. The shaking that is coming will be a time of questioning that leads either to repentance or rejection, an overwhelming feeling of being absolutely out of control that will lead to either an abandonment of righteousness or to a rekindling of holiness and purity. Many will finally wonder, “how did we as America get here?” “What happened to bring about this great collapse?” “Why is this truly happening?” “Why isn’t God blessing America and answering our prayers?” Christians will then realize that sin has not just riddled America full of holes but has also infiltrated and taken a stronghold in the Church itself via pornography, abortion, the sex slave trade, greed, tolerance of sin, the infiltration of false religious practices into our churches, the stench and stain of foul movies and music, a love of pleasure rather than God, lying signs and wonders being applauded as if from God, false prophets and false doctrine and most of all a root of bitterness. This root is not what most think–it’s not about talking badly about someone or having bitterness in your heart. A better translation would be root of poison. This root of poison is that of hardened, self-justified hearts that think they are blessed of God even when walking contrary to His word, teaching contrary to His word, believing contrary to His word, and leading others astray to boldly do the same; thus, the poison spreads and overrides the head (who is Christ). This grave evil can be done in the name of tolerance and love and even the “word of the Lord”.
The truth of this interpretation is incredibly revealed in a more recent dream of Coverstone called the Mud Dream of February 18th, wherein after much intercession of believers, they emerge to a world covered in filthy, stinking mud. All of them are disappointed and wonder why their earnest prayers were not answered. Nevertheless, the muddy path is what God had given to them, and they begin their journey through it to the center wherein God’s Cloud is. However, there are those who walk away. Those who walk away from the mud-filled narrow way leading to the “Cloud” said, “We will find better ground and the god that will honor our prayers.” Later others who exit the mud jeer believers by saying that the “mud is not God’s plan. He has deceived you, and yet you follow without thinking for yourselves.” Indeed, this is what will happen when the Church is shaken. These will be the ones who exit. This is not about persecution from outside the Church. This is about taunting from within. This is about the separating of the chaff from the wheat, even the wheat from the tares.
Indeed, there were will be those who abandon the faith because it does not meet with their expectations, their hopes, their idea of Christianity. God does not measure up to their standard, nor His answer to prayer measure up to what they had anticipated. They looked for their kind of revival that turns a nation around and promotes prosperity and peace in our time, but what they will find is a quieter revival that produces a great harvest but does not turn this nation around but rather leads economic implosion, government collapse and ultimately to judgment.
At the end of this likely gut-wrenching time of shaking, those who remain faithful will have done so via being obedient and by being tied together in bonds to one another and the altar. Some will die in faith during this shaking — and even are right now. But, the faithful will remain faithful, and those who are not will be made apparent. The man says at the end of the dream, “You took warning, and you were good to do so. Your obedience has been noted. And there will fruit both here and in heaven. Though shaken and broken, you will arise my Bride and work until I come.”
Jesus in Mark 13 states very clearly, “Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.34 For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.” In this dream, the man with the plumb line is saying that those who remain faithful have been obediently watching.
On top of this, it is observed that they are shaken and broken. Indeed, according to Psalm 51:16-17, “For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.” And shaken does not mean afraid. Again, it carries the meaning of having been sifted like wheat in order to remove the chaff, and the separation of wheat from the tares.
Let us thus be obediently watching. Let us be broken with contrition and repentance. Let us not be weary in well doing. Let us be about our Father’s business while it still day. For darkness is coming when no one can work (John 9:4); let us redeem the time for the days are evil (Ephesians 5:16). Now is the time, there will be no other.
In the words of Jesus in the Mud Dream who appeared in a white robe with angels all around Him, “My ways are not your ways. Your spiritual legs will be strengthened through agony; your witness will offend the naive and those who have no fear of me. Bracing gives way to fire, and those braced must remain on the path. My command is ‘come out from among them, separate yourself’ as the chaff is about to burn, and their smoke will fill the skies. I am coming soon, and my reward is with me. Stay faithful until I come.”
Let us therefore, not be disillusioned nor disappointed when God does not answer our fervent prayers the way we think He ought to regarding America or revival or the Church. When Jesus asked, “Are you going to leave me too?” may we though perplexed, say like Peter in response, “Where else can we go, Lord? It is you alone who have the words of eternal life,” (John 6:68). We must press on. We must be faithful. We must trust and obey. We must not be afraid, but must speak boldly and keep on speaking. For Jesus is coming soon.
May the Holy Spirit guide you and bless you with what He is saying to the churches.
