Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions
are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

by Rick Joyner

Several years ago, while I was praying about the future of
our economy, I was given a vision of a long, lush, green
field. I felt that this represented a long period of
economic prosperity, which has generally been the case since
that time. While praying in August of 1995, I saw this field
in a vision again, but with much more detail. The end of the
field was covered in fog. Not far into the fog there was a
very steep cliff. In the middle of the cliff there was a
narrow, twisting, steep path that appeared like a descending
bridge. It had the same green grass on it that the field
did, and went all the way to the bottom.

Those who walked into the fog almost all missed the little
path and fell over the cliff. Some of these died, but there
were nets below the cliffs that caught many of them.
However, these nets were not there to save the people but to
trap them. Others entered the fog carefully, dropping to
their knees and searching for the path, which they seemed to
intuitively know was there. Most of those looking for the
path were able to find it, and carefully started down on
their knees. A very few people had parachutes, and they
jumped off the cliff into the fog.

At the bottom there was a sea with four kinds of ships in
the harbor-slave ships, warships, luxury liners, and
hospital ships. Most of the ships were slavers. The next
greatest number were warships. There were only five hospital
ships, all of which were on clean, well kept docks right in
the middle of the harbor. The two luxury liners were docked
at each end of the harbor. There were an abundance of
supplies on their docks, but both the docks and ships looked
filthy and poorly maintained. No warships were docked, but
all kept moving about in the harbor.

The people who fell into the nets were put on the slave
ships. Most of those who made it down the steep paths headed
for the hospital ships, but many did head for the luxury
liners. Of those who headed for the luxury liners, some were
captured and made to board a slave ship. The luxury liners
were closely guarded, and obviously under the control of the
warships. The warships occasionally took people from the
slave ships and luxury liners, and they were taking whoever
they wanted; they could not be resisted.

Those from the hospital ships were also taking people from
the other ships, but they were only taking those who were
the weakest, or who were so sick or wounded that they were
not expected to live. The crewmen of the hospital ships were
shown respect because they wore brilliant armor that seemed
to confound everyone else. Those who were jumping off the
cliff with the parachutes were all landing on the hospital
ships or their docks.

When a slave ship would fill up it would depart, making
frequent turns as if it really did not know where it was
going. The warships were also making so many turns that it
seemed impossible to tell which way they would go next. Any
ship that happened to be in the way of a warship when it
turned was blasted and sunk by the warship. If the warships
turned toward each other they started shooting at each other
until one was sunk.

Because of the fog many ships collided with other ships and
sank. The water was filled with sharks that quickly devoured
those who fell into it. The confusion, despair and fear over
the harbor was as thick as the fog. When the fog thickened,
these fears would intensify. When the fog would thin a
little, hope would begin to rise in the people. When the fog
lifted enough the open sea could be seen, and the ships
would begin heading for it.

The hospital ships were also the only ones who seemed to be
sailing as if they knew where they were going. They could
sail right through the chaos in the harbor and into the open
sea at will. One or two of them were constantly going out to
sea, disappearing for a time, and then they would return.
Then another would go and do the same.

As I followed one of these ships to the open sea in the
vision, all of a sudden it was if I was standing on the
bridge of the ship. The further out we went, the more the
sky cleared. Soon it became more blue than I had ever seen
it, except when flying in a high altitude jet. I was so
intrigued by the sky that I had not been watching the sea.
When I looked back at it I saw that we were actually flying
at a very high altitude.

I thought that we were going out into space, but soon we
descended toward what appeared to be a whole new world. It
was composed of islands, each with a different culture of
people on it. The wounded on our hospital ship were placed
on several of the different islands, so that each wounded
person was placed with those from his or her own culture.

These islands were at perfect peace, and there were
beautiful white bridges connecting them to one another, with
a constant flow of people on the bridges. On each island
vast foundations were being laid for a great city.

Even though each island was very different, and different
from any place that I had ever seen, I felt immediately at
home on each one. They were each like paradise, and though
they seemed to be on a different world, I knew that they
were somehow very close to the one I had just left.

Interpretation and Insights:

That I can now see the end of this field indicates that the
end of our economic prosperity is now in sight. What I saw
at the end was much more catastrophic than I had ever
thought. There are some very dark times ahead, but at the
same time there is a whole new world being built right in
our midst that is more wonderful than we can even imagine.

To the degree that we have built our lives and faith on the
economy of the world, we have built on a very shaky
foundation. We know that the time will come when everything
that can be shaken will be. The time that we have been given
until that happens is for the purpose of preparation. Let us
build our hope and trust on the kingdom which alone cannot
be shaken.

Those who kept walking into the fog just as they had been
walking in the open field, not discerning, or not
acknowledging the change, either perished, or fell into
slavery. Those who immediately fell to their knees were able
to find a safe way down, but it still led down. They had to
stay on their knees all the way; no one could have stood up
on that slope because it was too steep and narrow. Falling
to our knees speaks of prayer. As soon as we see the fog, or
confusion, we must pray for every step we take thereafter.

That no one ascended, but all went down to the bottom of the
cliff, spoke to me that the economy of the whole world was
going down. Many will survive what is coming, but not at the
level they are presently. Much of our present standard of
living has been built upon credit, borrowing from the
future, and the future is now here. We are fast approaching
the time when the bills will have to be paid. That will
cause a drastic reduction of our present lifestyles.

I felt that the slave ships were banks. During the Great
Depression, banks were so over extended that most of them
failed. Somehow, they have now positioned themselves to not
only survive another economic collapse, but will actually be
in a place to enslave those who are in debt to them.

The warships were all different sizes, and I felt
represented different powers. Their efforts were not
coordinated, but they all seemed to be in as much confusion
as everyone else, and all seemed to be at war with one
another. They lived by plundering the other ships, and each
other. I believe that in the times ahead small wars will be
flashing up almost everywhere, and without reason. Anyone
who just gets in the way of those with some power will be in

The luxury ships were so filthy that it seemed only slightly
better to be on one of them instead of a slave or warship.
It was obvious that the luxury of the future will not be as
we know it today. Also, the luxury ships were constantly
being plundered by the warships, making them almost an
intolerable place to be. Even a hint of luxury in the future
may only serve to make us targets.

I knew that the hospital ships were the church. They were
glistening white with red crosses on them. They were so
bright and clean that they stood out dramatically in this
vision. White speaks of purity, and the red crosses spoke to
me that they were bearing the cross. Red is also the color
of sacrifice. These ships were so beautiful that anyone
would have wanted to be on them. The church will become the
most desirable place in the world to be, and the church will
become the pure vessel she is called to be when she takes up
the cross, committing herself to the life of sacrifice. In
the times ahead, the life of sacrifice and service to others
will be the most desirable life in the world, and will
actually be a glorious place to dwell.

The people on the hospital ships each wore brilliant, silver
armor. They, too, stood out dramatically whenever they
appeared, and this caused everyone to show them great
respect, even the warships. This spoke to me that when
believers learn to wear their armor, they are going to
command the whole world's respect, and have authority
because of it.

The docks of the hospital ships were also spotless, and were
overflowing with supplies. There was far more wealth on them
than on the luxury ships, but the wealth was being used for
service, not luxury. Because the individuals with the armor,
and the hospital ships, commanded such respect, no one was
trying to plunder their great stocks of supplies, even
though they were obvious to everyone.

When a hospital ship pulled between two warships that were
fighting, they would stop fighting, and give them their
wounded. It seemed that this was one of the primary purposes
of these ships, to simply stop the fighting whenever they

In the midst of the chaos of this place, the dignity,
resolve and purpose that the Christians and their ships
moved with was stunning. The greatest feeling came over me
when I stood on the bridge of the ship leaving for the open
sea. That feeling was freedom. As soon as we entered the
open sea we ascended into the heavenly places. Once out of
the fog we did not travel on the earth. When we came back
down it was to a seemingly new earth, even though I knew
somehow that it was right in the middle of what I had left.

That I entered this extraordinary freedom on a hospital ship
speaks of finding our true peace when we take up our crosses
to serve others. When we do that we will begin to dwell in
the heavenly places. Then we will see the earth very
differently, we will see what God is doing. I really felt
that those paradise islands were already right in our midst,
but we just could not see them yet.

At the very time when the world descends into a terrible
chaos, which will probably begin with economic chaos, God is
building bridges between peoples that will be the foundation
of a glorious future. The end of this age is the beginning
of the one over which Christ will reign. In Revelation 17:15
we are told that, "The waters which you saw where the harlot
sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues."
The sea often represents mass humanity in prophetic
language. That the sea at the bottom of the cliff was in the
most terrible chaos represents what the kingdoms of this
world are headed for. The islands represent that the Lord is
also laying a foundation for His kingdom, right in our
midst, at this same time. That I knew these islands were
close to the sea of confusion, spoke to me that what the
Lord is about to build on the earth is also very close at

The bridges are right now being built between peoples. The
bridges were for interchange, and it was obvious to me that
each island was building something wonderful, as if it were
the very best from their culture, in order to share it with
the other islands. That new foundations were being laid for
cities represented a whole new beginning for the earth. What
is now being built for the Lord, for the sake of His
kingdom, will remain and be a foundation for the age to
