You cannot go back to Egypt and expect things to work God’s way.

A Warning Dream for the Church
I had a dream that I was in a place where people were worshiping. In the dream, the people began asking me to sing a song I used to sing—a song that really carried the anointing back in the day.
When I got up to sing, it was as if they didn’t have the right equipment to play the song, but I tried to sing it anyway.
In the congregation, I also noticed a woman from my past who used to try and sing the song with me. I recognized this woman represented the religious system—I felt that if she sang with me, that she would drown out my voice.
The Taskmaster is Stopping the Gifts in Our Children!
Next in the dream, I walked into a separate room on the side, where there were several children of all different ages. Some were teens, one was a grade school kid and one was a baby.
They were all very sullenly doing activities such as drawing, reading, singing, etc. The scene was very dark and gloomy.
I remember there was a cruel man in the dream as well, who I recognized as a ”cruel taskmaster”. This “Gestapo” looking man had a kind of whip in his hand, and if the children didn’t do their activities HIS way, he would hit them with this instrument to inflict pain and to keep them in line with the ideas of his horrible way of thinking.
I then looked over and saw a baby crying in the corner, he didn’t have a blanket or covering. I went to him to try and cover him up, but the cruel man uncovered him again, and beat me away from him.
I cried and cried at the sight of the children’s bondage. When I woke up, I looked at my Facebook messages—a woman had sent me a message about a dream she had involving wolves in America trying to attack the children. After reading this, I asked God, “Okay Lord, what are You saying?”
It is Time to Come Out of Bondage and Cover the Babies!
I believe this was a warning dream to the American Church—there truly are wolves among us that are trying to devour the gifts and talents of the children, who through the spirit of religion, are being stifled and shut down in their expression of who God is in their lives.
I believe the Lord said that if we do not break away from the old traditions (just as I needed to in my dream) and do things God’s way—God is doing a NEW THING in the earth—that our children will also be under this hard taskmaster (who represents religion) and will not be able to become the expression of God to their generation!
God is wanting us to COVER THESE BABIES by pulling them out of this place of bondage, but first we must realize that the old ways do not work anymore!
While I was seeking the Lord about this, I heard Him speak to me something that the later prophet Kim Clement used to say: “You have never, ever been this way before.”
LET MY PEOPLE GO!
In this season, I believe God is saying: ”LET MY PEOPLE GO SO THEY CAN BE FREE TO EXPRESS WHO I AM IN THEIR GIFTS, TALENTS AND CALLINGS!
“‘Yes, let My people go!’ Proclaim to this evil taskmaster, RELIGION, and tell him he can never hold you or your children, or your children’s children, anymore!”
The Lord is telling us, “You can never go back to Egypt, believing that it will work— it will not! You can never go back the way you did in the past and expect it to bring the move of God! You can never go back to the old, because I have slammed the door on that!
“Say to that taskmaster, ‘LET MY PEOPE GO! LET MY FAMILY GO!’
“LET THE CHURCH ARISE AND HEAD TOWARD THE PROMISE LAND, FOR WHEN YOU DO, YOU WILL COME OUT HEALED AND WITH ALL THE RICHES YOU NEED TO MAKE THE JOURNEY!”
