"Watchmen on the Wall" dream

My "Watchmen" dream from the end of July 2018, was rather short and pretty simple.  I was leaving work, I saw something and I had a thought about it.  That was it.  One of the reasons I've decide to share it is because some of you, in reading this dream, might recognize something similar going on in your lives which might be an encouragement to you.

I was exiting a building which seemed to be my place of work.  As I was walking by the front of the building, I noticed that the whole building itself was mostly made of glass, like the newer work towers that are being built these days...basically mostly windows with a bit of brick.

I looked up and saw that on the right of the building, on quite a few floors, several workers had decided to pull their chairs right up to the window in order to do their work there.  They were seated, working away, basking in the sunlight streaming in and able to see so much more than being at a desk somewhere else in the office.

"Oh", I thought, "they've probably seen me do this and they've decided to do the same."


Upon waking up, the first thing that came to mind was the title of the dream which was the "Watchmen on the Wall".  It was so clear to me that this is what I had been shown in the dream; people who, just like me, were positioning themselves so that they could see more clearly into the distance.  It's like they could still do their normal, every day duties, but they had positioned themselves in such a way that they could also be on the alert and see anything "out there".

It was a bright, sunny day, which meant the Lord was present in the "Son-shine".  By sitting right up close to the window, everyone there was basking in this sunshine, so there is a sense of everyone going about their "duty of the moment" in a prayerful attitude, ready call out what they were seeing in the distance.

To be a person on the watchtower is a service to God's people, to family and friends, especially if they believe us!  

I had the following dream almost 4 years ago now, sometime near the end of July 2018.  Once again, because of the times in which we live, I thought I would share it with you because I believe the Lord is calling many people to be "watchmen on the tower", pointing out what they see in the distance.  To be on the watchtower is a service to God's people, to family and friends, especially if they believe us!  But we need to be sure that what we see is truly from the Lord so it's a good practice to always pray before "releasing" a word in order to follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit because not all that we see is meant to be spoken.  What we are shown can often be a call to intercession.
