What God Is Doing in the World
A Vision of a "Claw Machine" and a Dream of a Mega Tsunami:
I had a vision of a claw machine. A "claw machine" is a type of arcade game found in video arcades, malls or restaurants. The goal of the game is to manipulate the claw inside of the cabinet in order to grab a desired prize inside, which is then dispensed and collected by the player.
In my vision, the machine was filled with people sitting comfortably in a row. Then, out of no where, the claw started moving by itself, picking up those who seemed very comfortable and throwing them out of the game.
A few days later, I had a dream. In the dream, it was a sunny day, and I was sitting with my family inside a beach hut which was further from the beach. In an instant, there was a weather change, and out of nowhere a very high wave developed. It missed us by a few meters, but unfortunately it dragged others away.
This was a phenomenon, and we thought that maybe it was a one-off, but before we could give it another thought, a bigger one developed. We knew we couldn't get out of this beach hut.
I believe that this dream is about a mega tsunami. There will be so much turmoil because those in the world are thinking that it's smooth sailing, but out of no where, the weather will change, and instantly water will swallow them. This incident will be documented on the news as the biggest wave. I don't say this to bring fear, as God's people will be protected and kept safe. In that particular dream, those in the hut were safe.
As I sought God further, I heard God say that both the claw machine and the mega tsunami have the same message. There will be a "divine overturn" of current structures, current leadership, and current government which have been illegally set in place. As the claw machine moved by itself without any manipulation, and the mega tsunami wave turned by itself without anyone controlling it, so it will be in this year.
Again, this is not to bring fear; rather, it is to establish God's Kingdom. It will be like the days of Noah when, "In those days, the people enjoyed banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat and the flood came and destroyed them all" (Luke 17:27). Although, in my dream, I saw a huge wave, I believe this has a spiritual significance.
Vision and Dream Interpretation:
This vision and dream took me by surprise, and as I sought the Lord, I heard the following:
"There are many shepherds who have scattered and destroyed the flock. Bad shepherds will be accused, found guilty, condemned and fired."
"[T]herefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: Thus says the Lord GOD, Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require My sheep at their hand and put a stop to their feeding the sheep [as in dismiss the shepherds – fire them]..." (Ezekiel 34:9-10 ESV, emphasis added) (Photo via Picryl)
I heard the Lord say, "My rod is coming out and I am experienced at using it."
The Hebrew word for rod ("shebet") can mean "scepter" or "weapon." A shepherd's rod (in biblical times) was not a walking stick; rather, it was the shepherd's primary weapon for protecting the flock from enemies – both wild animals and human thieves. The instrument itself was often about two and a half feet long with a mace-like end into which heavy pieces of iron were often embedded. It became a mighty weapon.
What God Is Doing with His Covenant People
This is a message for God's covenant people.
Vision of a Bookshelf and an Area Full of Tools:
In a vision, I entered this glorious place. There before me was a bookshelf that was divided into square cubes. It was so tall and was painted in a shimmering, silver paint.
Each square cube had something that I needed or was praying for. Everything I needed was at arm's length and nothing was missing. I picked something and said, "Oh, I needed that! That's a miracle!" Then next to it I picked something else and thought, That's unusual, because I needed that too; that's a miracle! And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Yes, it's a year of great miracles of deliverance."
Then I saw an area with tools in the vision. I said, "Lord, I am not a builder, and I am not good at handy work!"
He said, "I will rebuild you on a firm foundation, and you will overflow with prosperity."
At that moment, I saw a river which had many heads flowing out from where I was standing. This river was alive, and as I touched the river, radiant life entered me. Then I heard what the Lord prophesied to Isaiah:
"This is what the LORD says: 'I will give Jerusalem a river of peace and prosperity. The wealth of the nations will flow to her. Her children will be nursed at her breasts, carried in her arms, and held on her lap." (Isaiah 66:12 NLT)
A Word for 2023: Victory and Deliverance!
The Lord said: "You are stepping into an interesting year, marked by My victory. There will be battles, turmoil and unrest, but be rest assured that you will witness the greatest display of My deliverance [which] will unfold like a glorious silk rug, for My righteousness will be on display.
"Many will fear and lack the basic needs of life, but as for you, My covenant people, you shall lack nothing. On the contrary, you will experience the river of peace and prosperity.
"For I – your divine Shepherd – will send down the showers in their season. They shall be showers of blessings. No one will be able to stop what I am going to do, for My righteousness will be established and My justice will be executed.
"Big names will be found guilty, accused, condemned and fired. So, do not fear or be dismayed, for you will be protected and comforted. Thieves will be exposed by their closest associates, and evil 'inner circles' will break, turn against each other and expose each other.
"I will suddenly appear on the stage, and My appearance will change the entire scene. Many will be surprised and shocked at My sudden appearance. It will be like the days of Noah, where everything seemed normal until the flood came and took them away. For My great hand and powerful arm can't be manipulated or stopped.

"Deliverance is coming," says the Lord, "for the prayers of the saints have [been] answered. This is a year where you will experience Me as your divine Shepherd. Know for certain that I have My rod in my hands and I am experienced at using it.
"But as for you, My beloved, the green pasture, the still waters and the restoration of your nation and your soul will be your portion. For this shall be a year of restoration and celebration, where I will anoint your head with the oil of celebration and put out a table for you in the presence of your enemy.
"Security will be a great issue, but My strong arm will carry you beyond reach. The battle will get stronger, but you will stand and watch what I will do for you, like watching a movie; for I will fight for you. You will be protected against evil, fraud, plagues and disasters. If you thought that the Red Sea deliverance was great, wait and see what is coming. For I, the God of the last hour – your miracle worker – will perform that miracle.
"Oppression will break off, for the Egyptian[s] you see now, you will never see again. What normally takes years to achieve will take months, and [what] takes months will take days. You are stepping into a year of acceleration.
"You will sing with Miriam: 'Your right hand, O LORD, is glorious in power. Your right hand, O LORD, smashes the enemy' [Exodus 15:6 NLT].
"Therefore, I call you to return to Me wholeheartedly, and you will see the biggest display of My glory and deliverance. For this is not a year to fit in but to stand out.
"Lean on Me, My beloved, for I will journey with you and carry you through. You will declare that all this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through His prophets. When you see what I will do, you will be filled with awe, and your faith will go to the next level up. You will truly sing, 'Surely goodness and unfailing love will follow me and pursue me all the days of my life.'"
