From Rural Wisconsin “Salty & Fresh”


In this post, we look at a prophetic dream submitted by Stricklen in Wisconsin


I was sitting on a beach and there was a long, tall curtain separating me from seeing the water. Suddenly someone pulled the curtain from one side and the whole curtain came down revealing the water.

The picture was very somber and still – dark, dim colors and there were patches of black fog resting above the water, as well as black rocks.

I was aware that the water was a mixture of salt water and freshwater. I stood and walked towards the water, and a young girl was in front of me.

She started splashing in the water and I was fearful that the water was dangerous and would hurt her.


Here’s my take:

The Lord is giving you insight about a grave situation.

This insight has been given in order to provide protection. The situation the dream speaks of is a situation which has been baffling to you.

But God has pulled back the curtain, so to speak, to give you the information you most need in this circumstance.

He is speaking to you about a situation which He sees as very dark and sad… a situation defined by patches of darkness which come and go in various places, as manifested by the actions of groups of people. To be sure, these folks are influenced by evil, and their actions have been called for in the spiritual realm.

Apparently, these people accuse others of wrong-doing, while they themselves are wrong-doers.

It looks like God wants you to understand the relevancy of the statement made by Jesus in Matthew 13:30: “Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, ‘Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.’”

In this dream, God is saying that the wheat and tares are both visible in this situation. The pure─ symbolized by freshwater, and the corrupt─ symbolized by saltwater, both exist together… and God has purpose in allowing this.

As to who the young girl is, or what she symbolizes, the Lord can be counted on to be faithful in clarifying her identity to you. She could, of course, be a daughter, another person, or even an entity.

Whoever she symbolizes can be described as naïve and considering involvement in the movement. But she is toying with danger! Exposing herself is dangerous. Pass this on as led by the Spirit, and pray for protection.


Since I’m not the dreamer, I can’t say for sure what this dream applies to in the life of the dreamer. But are you thinking what I’m thinking?

The situation is described by the Holy Spirit (who sent the dream) as very dark and sad, defined by patches of darkness which come and go in various places, as manifested by the actions of groups of people under the influence of the wrong spirits. They accuse others of wrong-doing, while they themselves are wrong-doers.

This looks a lot like what is dominating the news in America today. Need I say more?

I think it’s most interesting how GOD sees what’s going on! Blackness, rocks, and salty carry strong symbolic meanings.

We must, as believers, be FEARLESS in the face of this enemy!

2 Timothy 1:7For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

1 Corinthians 15:58Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

And yet, at the same time, we must use wisdom and be careful… for the enemy roams about seeking whom he might devour.

If you know someone on the wrong side of this, the person is “under the influence.” Pray for them, “for we wrestle not with flesh and blood.”

In fact, let’s all keep America and the world in prayer during these turbulent times!

  1. Thank you so much for praying and responding to this dream! The interpretation seems very accurate and applies specifically to a ministry situation I was facing, although it may also have meaning in regards to the US today as well.

    Thanks again!

    • Thanks, Kelly, for letting us know the real-life circumstances at the time of the dream! I feel that─ although the message could have been a warning concerning safety in the US today─ the dream ACTUALLY was sent to you to speak into your ministry situation at the time you needed insight. Praise God for his faithfulness, and thanks again for authenticating the voice of God in your life!
