Andrew Whalen: "Learning the Art of Prophetic War!"

[Editor's note: Below are the notes that Andrew Whalen shared from during a recent interview on Elijah Streams. We encourage you to read through them and watch the episode right here.]

Exposure in the Church

I had a dream (on March 5, 2024) that more exposure in elements of the Church NEEDS to happen. The shocking thing I knew was that the exposure we have seen so far among several denominations and streams of the Church has not yet uncovered someone that was revealed to me of whom I was not given a name or face... But who I saw was a type of "king pin" involved in heinous, immoral activity (including human/child trafficking within and through the 'church' system). Again, I didn't see a face or hear a name, but was made aware that there was someone like this.

In the dream, my initial reaction to this knowledge was one of deep anger. To be honest, I wanted to take vengeance into my own hands. I knew, by revelation, this individual had such a seared conscience that the only recourse to stop them was their death.

I believe this dream is both a heads up for prayer and preparation for what may be ahead. I believe the shocking nature of seeing trusted leaders and institutions exposed for their participation with deep levels of darkness is traumatizing. As much as we hate to see it, I thank God these "wolves" are being uncovered and exposed! How God must burn and grieve that His name has been used to shield predators of women and children. The individuals who did this are not true Christ followers, and their home is in Hell—apart from true repentance and applied mercy from God. We must get ready for more exposure, unfortunately—a lot more!

I believe God wants us to be angry at the devil and those who have sold their souls out to a predatorial spirit. Some may find a measure of mercy for their souls, but this is a time to cry out for justice! Jezebel is going to paint her eyes and seek to dilute the fire of Jehu by appealing to human sentiment, attempting to minimize the severity of these actions, but God is coming to "throw her down"!

Stand and Fight! We Are in a Prophetic War!

In my dreams, God will often take me into a place of intercession where I can feel, know, and understand what others are experiencing in realms of resistance, and what is needed for breakthrough and victory.

On this night (October 1, 2021), I woke up from a powerful dream in which I knew that many people were under a heavy cloud of oppression and spiritual resistance. In the dream, I was aware that this wasn't just happening in the world, but specifically among many in the Body of Christ, and in America.

Since I was functioning as a prophetic intercessor in the dream, I felt the weight of this resistance that many people were experiencing. The best way I can describe these feelings is an overwhelming sense of disillusionment, confusion, hopelessness, shame, and quiet desperation. There was a nagging feeling that God's promises might never come to pass.

Suddenly in the dream, Lou Engle came up to me and said, "Andrew, you need to deliver a word to the Body of Christ!" Lou then picked me up and brought me to a massive gathering of Believers across America. I knew they were the ones who were experiencing the resistance I had just felt.

Before I took the stage, I began to pray and ask God what word was needed for their breakthrough. I heard the Lord say, "Write down what I tell you." So, I began to write what I heard Him speak. He said, "The name of this prophecy you are to give them is called 'Prophetic War.'" (Photo via Rawpixel)

It's hard to fully describe how I felt, but upon hearing the name of that title, I suddenly felt the despair and confusion lift off me. I knew that this was also what would happen to the people who received God's directives from this word. I wrote down a long list of things I was hearing Him say. Here are some of the things I remember writing in the dream:

"My people need to relearn the art of war. They have not yet learned prophetic warfare like many of the ancients."

"My people need to know that when I give them a prophetic promise, there will be resistance—all of Hell will be set against it—and My people must change their mentality from passive acceptance to militant faith."

In my dream, after I wrote this down, I realized that resistance was suddenly set against me. An unseen enemy came after me to steal my notebook with this written word. I looked to Heaven and said, "God, in Your mercy, deliver me from this foe! I pray Your sword would now slay this Leviathan." I knew as I spoke this prayer that it was a Leviathan spirit that was operating to take the faith and fight out of God's people—to keep them under the twisting lies that say that God's promises will not be fulfilled.

In the dream, I broke through the resistance, taking the stage where crowds had gathered to worship and hear a message. As I opened my mouth, I saw the heavens open and a sword descend, striking the belly of Leviathan. I knew at that moment that the ears of the people could now receive this word. As I opened my mouth to speak, the Spirit of Prophecy came upon me and I declared, "God says, 'Somebody needs to hear this!'" I then proceeded to prophesy, "You must now fight! You must now learn to war for the promises, stand up, and believe!"

Those who had gathered to hear this word were being set free from their shame, apathy, hopelessness, and disillusionment. I watched as a visible resilience came back into the people of God. The word was delivering a breaker anointing to restore their hope and faith again!

End of dream.

Now more than ever, we must stand and fight! THERE ARE TOO MANY PROMISES TO PUT OUR 'ARMS' DOWN. WE MUST PICK UP THE WEAPONS OF OUR WARFARE, which are not carnal, but mighty through God for the pulling down of strongholds. The main resistance we are facing is competing narratives attempting to rob our faith, and our fight!

"This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare." (1 Timothy 1:18)

Joseph the Dreamer

Joseph had dreams early on that pointed to a time where his family would recognize his authority and kingly anointing, and then all of Hell raged against him.

Scripture does not suggest that Joseph continued to receive dreams and prophetic words to affirm these early prophecies/promises. In fact, the circumstances he endured were narratives competing against the word of God. Though he was tested, he didn't waver.

In reference to Joseph, Psalm 105:19 says, "Until the time that his word came to pass, the word of the LORD tested him." The outcome of his faith in the word of the Lord is found in Genesis 50:20: "As for you, what you intended against me for evil, God intended for good, in order to accomplish a day like this—to preserve the lives of many people."

Aftermath Dream

This is one of the most powerful dreams and words I've ever experienced. In the dream (October of 2019), I saw the future and the aftermath of the time when Trump and U.S. military operations were finished restoring government control back to the people. The first thing I saw was a large blue flag with white stars around the border, and in large letters it said, "Who Is Dope Now?" Then, I saw a second red flag with white stars and large letters that also said, "Who Is Dope Now?" I immediately understood that the signs meant that Trump, his team, and "We the People" had the clout, the power, and control returned to us. (Photo via Flickr)

In the next scene of the dream, I saw a file with a chart inside. The chart was removed from the file and shown to me. It was a list of every hidden military and presidential operation during Trump's time in office. I didn't see one of them by name specifically, but I did see a list of several military operations that had been used to sweep out the deep state and satanic controllers. I was very excited to see that each of the operations listed had a green check mark next to it, signifying that all operations were completed and successful!

In the next part of the dream, I was walking with President Trump. I knew we were in the future. I knew that the Clintons, Obamas, and unknown deep state controllers were gone, and justice had been served. I watched the military peacefully transfer control and power back to the people. Trump looked at me and said, "The patriots are in control now." I knew that I was walking down a hallway into the future, unafraid and saying to myself, "This changes everything for our nation and the world for the rest of my life. We had no idea how much liberty and freedom we didn't have, but now do."

I know I was in the future. I was there. It was as real as me being fully awake right now. This prophetic dream has tested me in light of the competing narratives created by so much resistance and discouraging circumstances. But, just like Joseph could say, I believe we too will say in the near future, "GOD WORKED THIS ALL OUT FOR GOOD, '... IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH A DAY LIKE THIS—TO PRESERVE THE LIVES OF MANY PEOPLE' (Genesis 50:20).
