On September 24th, 2022, I dreamed I was walking down a road by a field. In the field, there was a man standing next to his black horse. The horse reared up and bit the man. As this happened, the thought crossed my mind, “I wonder if I should help him, and I hope it doesn’t come after me.” Within the blink of an eye, the horse began trying to attack me. I grabbed control of the horse to calm him down and positioned myself so it couldnâ€™t harm me. Eventually, I was able to remove myself from the situation and walk home, looking back to make sure I wasn’t being pursued.
NOTES ABOUT THE DREAM: I wasn’t fearful, but I knew I needed to position myself in such a way that the horse couldn’t hurt me. Also, in the field, the horse looked a lot bigger when it was attacking the man. When it was attacking me, it seemed smaller.
I sense this is a warning dream regarding some things that will take place soon. According to Revelation 6:5-6, the black horse represents economic hardship, famine, and inflation. The struggle with the horse points to a struggle to keep the economy from falling, which is currently happening. I was kept safe in the dream as a believer, which suggests that the Lord is our only refuge during these times. (Interpretation edited and amended by MSJN staff.)
In my dream, I was posturing myself so that I wouldn’t get bitten. As a result, my family and I have been doing our best to prepare in advance for any future economic and food supply challenges by praying, trusting, and seeking wisdom from the Lord on how we should prepare for the things that are coming. One practical preparation would simply be storing extra food and asking the Lord as to precisely what we should store just as Joseph did in the book of Genesis when he saw a famine coming. NOTES FROM THE DREAMER: Weâ€™re buying food that is easy to prepare and has a long shelf life. We have also purchased a generator and extra fuel to run the generator for our refrigerator etc., in the event of power outages. I feel it is important to do some practical things to prepare, like learn basic first aid, crisis response preparedness skills, and self-sufficiency skills, and start practicing and implementing what we have learned.
