Nate Johnston: "The Dream of the Three Coins"

Nate Johnston, Colorado Springs, CO
May 30, 2024

A Spiritual and Natural Recession

Recently, I had the same dream for three nights in a row. I believe this dream is the Lord speaking about what He is getting ready to pour out upon the Body of Christ in this next season. Before I share the dream, I need to speak about the season that we have been in. It's what I have called a "spiritual and natural recession."

Since 2020, there has been an assignment (or recession) constantly trying to make the Church back pedal on faith amidst so much shaking. It's been a season where finances have felt tighter, because the enemy is anticipating and dreading this great wealth transfer that is coming to the Church. That's why financial systems have been shaken, interest rates have skyrocketed, and people have gone into survival mode.

Yes, the enemy has been afraid that the Church will be able to build the infrastructure for years to come. He has tried to bring back a poverty mindset upon the Body of Christ and a hope-deferred spirit to cause us to feel deeply let down by God and doubt His promises.

This is why we have seen a great delay in promised provisions, breakthroughs, and plans. It's where many have had an endless assault on their bank accounts and things that used to flourish in past seasons. This is why you have felt like things have been falling to the ground and failing, and many of your plans and ideas have been shipwrecked, and you have not seen them flourish as you used to in years past.

This Is All Changing

Before I share my dream, I need to say to you, this is all changing. We've been in a season that has felt like a recession, and the news is only backing up this fear agenda, but just as we are on the cusp of what the world is saying is going to be another great depression, the Lord says today that, "You are going to experience MY EXPANSION! GO TO THE RIVER!" Now, let me share the dream.

Go to the River and Catch a Fish

In the dream, I am simply told that I must go to the mouth of a river and catch a fish. As I catch this fish and bring it in, I open up its mouth, and there are three gold coins inside. On the first coin, it says "DEBT." On the second coin, it says "SOW." On the third coin, it says "BUILD." Do you remember the story of when Jesus owed taxes and what He told Peter to do? "But so that we may not cause offense, go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth, and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for My tax and yours" (Matthew 17:27). (Photo via Pexels)

First Coin: "Debt"

I believe this dream was shown to me three times because three represents restoration and fullness. When Peter denied Jesus three times, Jesus restored him three times by saying, "Feed My sheep!" (John 21:17). I believe this dream is speaking into a season of such endless provision in those three areas: debt repayment, sowing, and building. We are about to see a season of the repayment of debts that is not just the debts that you owe, or that God wants to wipe clear, but the debts that people owe you. We are coming into a time where the Lord is repaying that which the locust ate in your life.

You have lived in such a deficit, and in a deficit mindset constantly‚ÄĒalways under and never above‚ÄĒbut the Lord is coming to repay that which has been stolen and robbed from you for many seasons past. And where you've been living stewarding debt, the Lord wants to switch that so that you are beginning to steward the endless resources of the Kingdom.

Second Coin: "Sow"

Regarding the second coin, the Scripture that came to mind was Ecclesiastes 11:1, "Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days."

I believe we're entering into a time when the Lord is restoring the joy of sowing. He's restoring the principle of sowing and the joy of sowing where many have felt like they've been in survival mode, unable to give, or being afraid to give because of endless hardship and financial assault. The Lord is demolishing that mindset, and He's releasing joy upon the Body of Christ to be the sowers and givers that we are called to be.

I believe this is a promise that we're stepping into "a time of great sowing." The Lord doesn't want us to be given wealth for the sake of hoarding it up, but for the sake of being a river‚ÄĒa flow-through. God gives into us, and we continue to release those finances through us to those around us. We begin to help others build their dreams, build the things that God has given them, rather than just building what we have been given. We are entering a time where the world will look to us because we will be flourishing like a "Goshen" in the midst of so much ruin in man's systems on Earth. (Photo via Pexels)

Third Coin: "Build"

Regarding the third coin, many have been saying for a long time, "God, how do I build when I don't have the resources to build?" And so, for many years, people have been contending; they've been bringing the plots of land before their eyes; they've been printing out their vision and praying over it. But over the last year, I've noticed that people have begun to grow weary because it's like, "God, you've given us a massive vision, but we don't even have 1% of the finances to be able to build this vision!"

It has felt like a deep cloud of discouragement, and soul sickness has hit many because the enemy has been delaying these plans for so long now. It's begun to feel like "a pie in the sky" idea. It's begun to look like fool's gold. People have begun to get despondent and frustrated. There have been people who have lost their homes and their livelihoods. In the midst of all that, it almost feels like a cruel joke to have to believe in the promises of God for a big vision when they're barely surviving in some of these other areas.

I believe this dream is speaking that the Lord is about to release the resources to build. He's releasing the provision to finally build what He has given us.

Today, the Lord says, "Get ready, Body of Christ, because you've been in survival mode for a long time. You've been in a time where you've had to manage, and juggle, and shuffle. But I'm leading you out of that limited place into a time of a great reset of finances and provision, of mindsets, and in your heart where you've grown hope deferred. You're about to build and see that which I've given you to build. Get ready Body of Christ! Get ready Body, get ready! It's time to go down to the river. It's time to pick out the gold coins from the fish's mouth. And it's time to see a new era of provision come to your house," in Jesus' name.
