The following is from an experience I had with the Lord several years ago. Read through it, and I’ll add intercession for Ellen at the end:
After I woke up from a dream, I read my verse of the day… here it is:
Colossians 4:5 Be wise when you engage with those outside the faith community; make the most of every moment and every encounter.
I felt God had a message of love for Ellen that I should try to get to her.
I feel such an overwhelming anointing even now… and I’m praying God touches Ellen’s heart.
I decided to email Ellen. I have no idea if she will ever get it, but I pray she does.
Here’s what I sent to Ellen DeGeneres:
Here’s a strange story for ya! I’m a pastor & author, and I had a dream about you last night. It was crazy long and detailed and the first two part dream I’ve had (I got up to go to the bathroom in the middle and the dream continued after I went back to sleep).
You aren’t someone I think about often at all (sorry!), so I have a feeling God may have dropped that dream on me. It started with you at the Academy Awards (or something similar) and you called me on stage from the audience. I was overwhelmed with grief and whispered to you, “Please forgive me for judging you.”
Later, you went on to share with me from your heart about some pain and you talked about your mom. Later on I met your mom and your brother at their home. (I didn’t realize you had a brother until I googled it just a moment ago.)
There were other pieces to the dream, but I thought I’d leave it at that for now.
A little about me; I may appear to fit the stereotype as I do believe any lifestyle that embraces activities that God, in his wisdom, deems unhealthy must be avoided. Homosexuality included. However, what’s also included is pride, which the Christian church is often steeped in. So is selfish ambition and having cold love. All deadly, all have hit the church at large. Again, please forgive me.
After the dream I decided to preach tonight on a crazy controversial message calling the church to repentance titled, “Almost Homosexual: The Church in Crisis.”
God likes you, he loves you. Me too.
That experience several years ago still shakes me. Let’s contend for Ellen!
“God I implore you to move powerfully in Ellen Degeneres’ life today. Right now. I know without a shadow of a doubt that you are zealously pursuing this amazing woman and your passion is to move so powerfully that she could never deny your love.”
“Holy Spirit move like a fire right where she is, wherever she is, whatever she is doing. Visit her in a dream just like you did for me. Bring anointed men and women of God across her path. Let a spirit of prophecy reveal the mysteries of God to her. I am excited about the plans you have for her, Jesus. I declare the enemy must relent and a window of opportunity must open for her NOW! In Jesus’ name! Amen!”
Please consider leaving a prayer below. I’d encourage you to record a 30 second prayer as well. Let’s see God shake Hollywood!
