Prophetic Word: "D.C. United"


As we get closer to Election Day, I discern the Lord is warning us of the pressures to fight and divide along political lines as well as other lines that will be thrown our way by political debates.


In this particular dream, I was sitting down with three guys, and we were watching a football game in person. But we were sitting on a couch at field level.


Shannon Sharpe was someone we were listening to, and he talked about his investments, how they went from $13 million to $100 million to $190 million.


And he talked about how he paid close attention to how he protected his money, and himself. He said he wouldn’t fly unless it was absolutely necessary.


I was sitting with these other guys and I knew they were all former members of D.C. United soccer team.


They were retired, but they had such pride in their history together.


I wanted so much to be part of their group, but I was only able to listen to the stories.


I asked them if they heard Shannon Sharpe and if I understood him correctly when I thought he said he doesn’t fly often.


And the guy sitting right beside me said, "Yeah." And I realized he was richer than Shannon Sharpe. He was worth at least $500 million.


What the Lord is showing us here is a contrast between individualism and oneness. Shannon Sharpe was wealthy on his own account. But those who worked together on the D.C. United team, could each say they were richer.


Shannon Sharpe was afraid to fly.


The D.C. United weren't afraid of anything. They were champions and they were together. They had nothing to fear.


Somehow had the opportunity to sit with those guys. They were all wealthy, and at some point an old soccer ball was kicked in my direction. And it seemed like it was going to hit me, but it rolled up to me and I took it.


And it was an old D.C. United soccer ball when they were the MLS champions several years in a row. (D.C. United is a real-life MLS team that initially won several championships).


It was the era the guys I was sitting with were on the team, and I said something to them about the ball.


It was worn, but still usable.


Basically, my remarks were expressing how those were the good old days when D.C. United was champion.


I wanted so much to be part of their group. I wanted to somehow show them that I had been a good player as well. Maybe even exaggerate how good I was to impress them and be welcome into their fold.


When all of a sudden, a man I recognized showed up. I thought I knew him from soccer, but I wasn’t sure. But I hopped up and said hi, and asked him how he was doing and what he had been up to.


I was hoping he would provide some kind of evidence that I had played soccer pretty well by sharing his thoughts on me in front of the D.C. United guys, but I just wasn’t sure how I knew him.


He sat down next to me on the couch and smiled as we chatted a bit. Small talk. And he never really said anything about my old soccer days, to my disappointment.


I didn’t want to self-promote. But I just didn’t know how else to get into the D.C. United family.


My heart was an illustration of God's heart. He craves to be one with us.


God craves that we become one with one another!!!


As I sought the Lord I was led to two verses:


“I and My Father are one.”

John 10:30


“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one!"

Deuteronomy 6:4


These speak of the identity of Christ as One with the Father. And we should be one with Him as we are one with one another.


Oneness is God's identity.


This should be expressed by the Body of Christ everywhere, including D.C.


What’s on the Lord’s heart, is oneness in the Body even in politics, even during an election season, even in the seat of power in Washington D.C. If we are expressing anything except oneness, we are out of step with one another, and we are especially out of step with our identity in Christ as we are also out of step with the Father.


The remedy is hidden in our identity. Oneness can only be found in the Lord. We must seek to be one with the Father, and by default we will be one with one another.


As we get closer to Election Day, I discern the Lord is warning us of the pressures to fight and divide along political lines as well as other lines that will be thrown our way by political debates.


We must resist the urge to be political. We must seek the Father and stay with Him


What is He saying?


How is He saying it?


If we don’t hear from the Father, we must remain silent. If we don’t hear from the Father, we must remain neutral in political debate.


So, our responsibility is to hear!


Each of us must be sure we know the Father’s voice.


Have you taken the time to ask Him about His heart? We must not speak unless we are confident we are saying what He is saying.


Everything else is corrupt.


"Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers."

Ephesians 4:29


Watch your mouth.


Don’t be used by the enemy to divide us.


Division is the work of Satan. We can’t allow ourselves to act like him.


"These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.

Proverbs 6:16-19


May God bless you and keep you,
