In 1999, I was in the city of Barcelona, Spain, with my friend Julie Anderson. After an excellent dinner in that beautiful city, we retired for the night. Around three a.m., I was awakened by a voice, "Wake up! I want to talk with you! I am Gabriel and I am here to give you a message from God.” I did not see him; nonetheless, I had no doubt that he was who he said he was.
The next thing I knew, I was having a vision of mounting and riding a huge chestnut horse and my friend Julie was mounting and riding a white stallion. She was part of a vast army of women. As the Lord showed me country after country, I saw thousands of women on horseback behind me to march across the earth. In the vision, I was wearing armor and carried a sword.Gabriel told me that the women in the vision comprised a great company of women who would march across the planet, preaching the gospel, doing miracles, and transforming the nations.
These women were to be a Deborah Company and I was to help find them and release them. This is much like what we read in Psalm 68:11. In fact, many translations do not clearly denote that the Hebrew word used for ‘company’ in this verse is both feminine and plural—thus, a great company of women.
Since that day God has helped me as I have endeavored to do just what the heavenly vision mandated. The Lord has shown me that there are women, both young and old, who will change the nations of the earth through following the call of God on their lives.
