I had this strange and profound dream in 2018. It’s about this bridge called ‘The Lehakwe Bridge’. I strongly feel that this dream is very important for the body of Christ for the season we are in right now.
May our Lord Jesus Christ impart courage to you as you read this, so you can take the step of faith needed to enter into His fulness in this season.
In the dream, me and friends of mine were sitting at a restaurant enjoying a meal together. There were people around us eating, partying and dancing. We could feel the worldly atmosphere.
Then a man asked me to dance. I had an engagement ring on which was given to me by this man. I looked at the ring. It had a huge flashy diamond on it, but it was clearly fake.
While dancing with him I felt uneasy and decided to leave. Me and my friends took a long footpath through the woods. It was dark outside.
We were joined by a group of men. They were friendly but I sensed that they were trying to hook up with us.
We then entered a city. It was still dark and the air was thick with smoke. Some buildings caught fire and started burning down. I sensed a heaviness in the spirit realm and knew the end was drawing near.
The scene transitioned and I was now alone. I felt an urgency to leave and walked in the direction of the Lesotho mountains. The Country of Lesotho is also known as the mountain kingdom.
As I approached the mountains there was a bridge. This bridge had to be “crossed” to enter the mountain kingdom. As I looked, I saw that this bridge wasn’t a bridge at all. It was a free fall! I stared at it in shock. It was extremely high and it was humanly impossible to “cross”.
A small group of people were standing at my right and I asked them if it is possible to cross this bridge. I could not comprehend how anyone could cross this. With confidence, they answered that it is possible and that there are people who have done it.
Just then a man on a motorcycle came and without hesitation went down the vertical free fall with his bike. I stared in amazement as he fell down and then at the bottom supernaturally got back on his bike where a transition formed at the bottom like a half-pipe so he could ride out onto the road.
As I looked at this, I felt that the risk was too great and I decided to go back to the city. When I got back it looked even worse than before. I came to this information desk where one of the men that accompanied us on the footpath sat.
I asked him if there was another way to go to the mountains. This time he was unfriendly and irritated because I wanted to leave. He told me there is another road but that the drive by car is an hour longer.
As I wanted to leave the city again it was closed off by booms. I had to beg the man at the information desk to open the boom for me and allow me to exit.
When I got back to the bridge, I knew I had only one option: I have to jump!
As I woke up, I repeatedly said aloud, “The Lehakwe bridge, the Lehakwe bridge, the Lehakwe bridge.”
The meal at the worldly restaurant serves as a warning for believers not to eat at the table of the world and to not seek satisfaction from worldly things.
A common theme in many of my dreams is false betrothals. In these dreams I symbolise the bride of Christ and the men in some of these dreams symbolise the spirit of this world sent to mesmerise us and to draw us into worldly, temporarily satisfactions.
As long as we indulge in worldly things we cannot walk in our destinies and be prepared as the spotless bride of Christ.
Just like the engagement ring was fake, the world cannot offer us anything valuable. We should not dance according to the beat of this world; we are called to dance with our bridegroom and our hearts must be in rhythm according to His desires.
“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.”
~ 1 John 2:16-17
The long walk at night in the woods speaks of the worldly mindsets that we need to exit. Trees in dreams often symbolise thought branches, strongholds and mindsets that need to be overcome. Worldly mindsets are always shrouded in darkness. The worldly people that share these mindsets don’t have pure motives. They seem like they are our friends, but when we want out, we find out that they are not really friends. They are just in it for selfish gain, like the group of men in the dream.
The city that started burning down symbolises the end of the age that is drawing near. As the day approaches, the Lord is calling His remnant people to His mountain Kingdom. This symbolises Mount Zion. This is His sacred place where His bride will rule with Him. To rule with Jesus requires for us to be fully surrendered and have a set-apart life.
Many are now being called by God to exit the worldly systems completely. He is calling the pioneers to discover His new godly systems according to His blueprints and patterns. These patterns and blueprints will be crucial for the times ahead. Our Father is busy revealing it on His mountain Kingdom. But only to those fully yielded ones that He can trust with His Kingdom assignments.
The only way to cross over to the mountain Kingdom is by complete surrender. This leap of faith will feel like a free fall, impossible for the human mind to comprehend! But with God it’s possible!
The word Lehakwe means precious gem or pearl in Sesotho. The crossing of the bridge will form pearl or precious stone in us as we completely surrender to His ways and will for our lives.
A pearl is formed when an oyster gets wounded or irritated by a foreign object like sand or a parasite. It then secretes a substance to protect itself. This is what forms the pearl. Precious stones on the other hand get formed by immense pressure under the earth.
Likewise, we will have to go through discomfort, pressure and suffering to enter His mountain Kingdom (2Co 4:17). The leap of faith and trust it will take for us to go through with what God expects of us in this season will look and feel like a complete freefall. It will require total surrender. What comes out on the other side however will be precious, unlike the fake diamond the world has to offer.
We need to take heed when standing before this bridge (this choice), to not lose heart and turn back to the city (the ways and systems of the world). Once we turn back it might be more difficult to return to the bridge, as our previous “friends” will turn into our enemies – making it difficult for us to leave.
There is another way, but it will take longer, meaning you stand the risk of missing God’s timing. When I shared this dream at a SPIRIT-GYM session a sister in the Lord said that as I shared, she saw lots of traffic jams on this road. Lots of people are taking the “more comfortable” option and in the end, it will cause spiritual delays for them. These people risk missing their destinies completely.
The importance of Timing and Alignment
Timing in God’s Kingdom is of utmost importance. As Paul said in Ephesians 5:15-16:
“See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
God taught me precious principles of timing in 2018 when He asked me to resign from my job. God gave me a specific time when to resign.
I was tempted to stay two months longer to receive my birthday bonus. That night I had two dreams: One indicating that our provision from the Lord will be cut off. Another where I climbed off at the wrong stop and there was a huge storm. That morning as I woke up, I repented as I realised the urgency of the matter.
God is a God of grace, but He is also a God of order and we need to obey His timing for things. Looking back at that incident we (me and my husband) can now clearly see God’s wisdom. We are forever grateful that He lovingly warned us not to be disobedient to His Kingdom timing. We would have potentially landed in a lot of trouble. His timing was truly perfect.
What is Your Lehakwe Bridge?
The crossing of the Lehakwe bridge will mean different things for different people. For many, it will mean leaving behind some form of worldly security in order to follow the Lord.
I pray that He will reveal what this means to you personally and in which areas of your lives this applies.
I want to urge you to take this bold leap of faith, instead of turning back to the ways of the world or choosing the more comfortable option.
May we all jump into our destinies!
