What This Tornado Dream Means for Us Now
Posted on August 31,2017
by Doug Addison

Throughout the Bible we see times of transition into new seasons. With every new season comes new leaders and new wisdom for how to operate in this new time. What used to work in the old season is not effective for the new.

We are in a time of transition and a major season of change is upon us.

He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. Daniel 2:21 NIV

Prophecy of three kings

An example of this is with King Saul and King David. God called King Saul, and there was a point where the season changed and the anointing and calling fell upon David. Their leadership styles were totally different, and God used David to birth a new level of wisdom that had never been seen before on Earth through his son, Solomon.

I heard Larry Randolph talk about this in the past. Prophetically, we can view these three kings that are similar to three moves of God:

  1. King Saul represents the old, more rigid and structured religion. This worked during that season, but later they lost track of love.
  2. King David, the man after God’s own heart—the man of love, but also of war—came on the scene. David represents the recent charismatic movement that loves God and worships freely. But like David, many of them were guilty of bloodshed by wounding others. David was not permitted by God to build the temple because of this.
  3. King Solomon, at a young age, brought a level of wisdom that had never been seen on Earth. Solomon was able to build the temple because of God’s love and promises for David. This is a prophetic sign of what is coming to us now.

God is going to raise up a new level of leadership upon a young generation that is going to move in worldwide favor and blessing.

My tornado dream

I had a significant dream years ago, and the Lord just spoke to me that this dream is for now.

In the dream, I was in a room with many leaders, a tornado was approaching fast and there was no time to react. The tornado entered the room and everything began to rotate clock-wise. I saw a chair floating by as I, too, was being picked up and floating as well. I was about to grab hold of the chair when the Lord spoke audibly to everyone in the room, “Many people have died because they have held onto their chair.”

Just then I heard the cry of a leader being swept away because he was hanging onto his chair. Then I heard a voice and a song on the radio say, “There are musical chairs at 57,000 feet.”

The meaning of the dream:

There is a change coming in leadership. In order for us to be more easily used by the Lord, we must hold our current positions loosely.

The tornado was allowed by God (clock-wise spin, as opposed to counter-clockwise). In dreams, chairs often represent our position. Those who try to hold onto a position, instead of flowing in what God has, will not be able to survive the change that is coming. 57,000: 5+7=12 which is the number of leadership and government. The fact that the number was in the thousands indicates a higher level or degree of change.

As these changes come about, there will be a shift in the entire Church and government. New positions will open that have been occupied by people who are not necessarily called to be doing what they are doing.

Some leaders who have lost their vision will gain fresh new insight from the Lord and begin leading their churches to a new level. Others will need to step aside and allow others to lead.

The Lord spoke to me that this is coming in 2018. We are called to help bring about one of the greatest changes we have seen in history. The greatest revival is yet to come!

    This is all new ,i know the lord, believe fully in his word, limit pray for strength healing, as I age to accept his way that I haven’t been exposed to helped, however need exposure to what God is doing now.


    I had a vision back in 2005 where a tornado came and it strpped me naked and I was cut all over my body, holding on to the toilet bowl in my downstars powder room. I was thankful to be alive while everything was going around and around. I’m back then I had felt like the Lord said he was going to turn the bad suddenly (the tornado) into a good suddenly and just to hang on. I am hoping that this has already passed in my life as it seemed like I was directed to hang on for protection there at that time. It seemed like God was dealing with everyone at that time and during these past years so that we might be made his humble vessels to receive all that he has and all that he wants to give us to implement bringing and the great End Time Harvest.

      What a cool dream Kathryn! Thank you for sharing that with us. Amen to the bad suddenly turning into a good suddenly!

  3. Tammy Glenn says:

    AMEN! I come into agreement for major changes and higher levels of elevation into the Spirit realm for my life, Amen and Amen!!!

  4. Theresa says:

    Your words hit right on. I work in a salon and it has not been fruitful for several weeks. I can feel the Lord say, Your days here are number. I have to walk away from the salon without another job to walk into. 1 – I have to stretch my faith and 2 – be obedient. The scripture that I got to back up this word was Genesis 12 , Abraham promise from the Lord. So I am giving you two weeks notice and stepping out.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Bless you Theresa as you walk into this new season of a different work place. Agreeing with you for a new, wonderful change.

    • Christy Mackiewicz says:

      Theresa, would you consider contacting me? I too am in the beauty industry and sense a shift. I can share with you what the Lord has placed on my heart regarding this industry. I’ve never commented on these but your comment caught me. You can search me on Facebook as christy chenevert Mackiewicz. I just felt led to comment and attempt contact with you!

      • Hi Christy i too am in the beauty field but doing more healing through aromatherapy massage. Im retur ing to it after 20 years away. Can you contact metoo id loveto know what the Lord has spoken to you about. Im in the uk face book debrahmcneill

      • Elizabeth Replogle says:

        Hi, I am interested in hearing what God has been speaking to you about the hair industry also if you dont mind sharing with me. I too am a hair stylist however God is moving me as well. I recently cut back to only working 1 day a week and now attending ORU full time seeking a degree in psychology. God put it heavy on my heart to move in this direction. Many people need healing and are being held back spiritually due to strongholds in their minds.

  5. Heather Marsten says:

    Have a question about the Solomon move of God – initially Solomon was wise and followed God’s plan, but then he let in the foreign wives, their gods and worship and fell away from God and his sons ended up dividing the Kingdom. So how does that fit in?

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Good question Heather. Though Solomon did end up not choosing right, there were many years of him choosing well, which is why we still read Proverbs. Its kinda like that phrase, eat the meat but spit out the bones. We still want Solomons amazing wisdom in his younger years, but we do not want his wrong choices in his later life.

  6. Sharon Schild says:

    Caught my attention when I saw 5 & 7, because a few months ago I had a dream where someone gave me $5 million then someone stepped up & gave me another check for $7 million. I had this same dream the other day of being given the $5 million then $7 million.
    Is this money or just change….expecting both plus…but the numbers had me wondering.

  7. Nina Gardner says:

    Yes, I can attest that this is true. I have also seen the tornadoes in my dreams as well as His mighty floods that will affect everyone. I’ve seen some in leadership being swept under and new leaders being carried by the waves of God. God recently told me that “It’s here.”

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Awesome Nina. I love how you are hearing very similar to what Doug said and dreaming about tornados. Bless you and your ability to hear God!

  8. Allison says:

    We had a major door close a year ago with no new doors open and no place to go. So we are living where we are waitingjon God. As time goes in we have no direction and Haven’t heard of any plans from god- waiting…

  9. Ellie says:

    Is this just a shift in the church and government or could this apply to other things as well? I have been interviewing with people I should not even have the chance to meet with and I get the feeling a new position will open up for me that I’m not even qualified for experience-wise but will get to do because of God’s favor.

  10. Elizabeth TURNER says:

    It’s going to take tornadoes to give up instititional authority, recognition, absolution and security. I’m not sure that those of us free spirits over a long period of time in the past will be recognized. But if you are alive after a tornado, who cares? The idea is to reach the nations.

  11. Mary B says:

    I have seen this coming and rebuked myself many times over the years for allowing the thought to enter. Yes and at times it seemed way past due and apparent as to what the biggest problem we have as The Body is. I saw something specific and righteous this morning and tried to enter into it and turn it with much Grace. Not sure what will come of it, God’s Will be done. Thank you for seeing clearly, it surely restores my sanity, though apparently it has not been lost. Praise God. Amen.

  12. Kevin says:

    Wow. This is a major eye opener because of the speed and rapid change of how this dream moves again, Doug has brought to us the wisdom revelation from above the heavens. Amazing I’m
    just reminded of how Gods wisdom is without a flaw.

  13. Pat Anderson says:

    I have had several changes in my life too. I made dance costumes, banners and flags and now , not so much. My husband died and I move everything near my children and work with two daughters housecleaning. Now, not so. I move into renovating my house but now had to stop cause money was running low. Ended up doing renovations through utube and learned a lot. Now, done and am upholstering 3 pieces of furniture for the first time. Now done. Now what? Strange.

  14. David Reyes says:

    I saw a tornado in the distance and I was with my with and child,
    We were driving then we found our self walking on the side walk I’m saying come this way.
    To this old apartment complex basement I used to stay at with my parents
    Then I saw my self standing in front of them.
    I woke up from there

  15. Martinez says:

    I agree, I’m seeing this in my church for several years with leadership/ministerial positions that are false, they don’t have a genuine heart. We will know them by their fruits. Let God establish his government in the body of Christ.

  16. Dana says:

    Interesting the timing of this. Early yesterday morning I felt drawn back to this scripture that God gave me a year and a half ago that I wrote on the front of my journal. It was 1 Chronicles 22:18-19. I felt drawn to take it out and dig into it. When I was done I read this blog.
    Thank you and amen!
    On Fire for Christ,
    Dana Lyons

      • Ted says:

        Hi Nikki.
        Thanks for your response. The point was this — here is the first prophetic word for the Church based on the reigns of the first three kings of Israel. I thought Doug Addison and others will benefit from the insights in the original word.
        God Bless

        • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

          Thank you so much Ted, I appreciate you sharing it! If we let people post other blogs on here, it can become too much so we try to keep it at a minimum. It’s so kind of you to want to share it though. <3

  19. Sandy George says:

    Thanks Doug for sharing, for a couple of years I have notice that the number 11:11 and the 57.
    The Lord revealed to me that 11 was transition and I had thought that the 57 meant leadership. Thanks for confirming. I believe he getting me ready to move into leadership as well as other changes in my life.
