“And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams” (Acts 2:17).
“Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets.” (Amos 3:7)
The following are prophetic dreams and revelations that God gave my brother Alan Odle. He has shared some of these things with me over the years BEFORE they happened and it has been evident that God was speaking to him. Genuine prophetic ministry is much needed by the body of Christ these days and there is no doubt that Alan operates in the real thing. I have watched his walk with the Lord Jesus for over 25 years and I know that he is a sincere, passionate and humble follower of Jesus Christ. Alan is a prophet, intercessor and teacher. I encourage you to read and share this article and fervently seek after the Lord and what He wishes to reveal to you during these last days.

Perfect Alignments for The End Of All Things
It is clear that prophetic revelation from God is supposed to be part of New Testament Christianity. Joseph saved his family by being warned of future events (Matthew 2:13-15). In Antioch the church sent supplies to Judea because they were warned of an imminent world-wide famine (Acts 11:27-30). The church was given advance notice that the Apostle Paul would be imprisoned in Jerusalem and delivered into the hands of the Gentiles (Acts 21:11). The examples of prophetic revelation go on and on in both Old and New Testaments. As a matter of fact, an entire book in the New Testament is dedicated to and rightly named REVELATION. Prophetic revelation from God about future events has always had significance and purpose.
September 11, 2001
I received my first prophetic revelation from God the night of September 10, 2001. I dreamed that I saw a metal frame going very high into the sky. All I could see was the frame. In the dream I thought it was an extremely tall radio tower because they are made of a frame only. As I stared at this tall frame it began to collapse. My view was quickly shifted toward the ground. I saw crowds of people under the tower running in every direction as it collapsed. The next day I sat in shock as I watched the 9/11 attack on the Twin Towers in New York City and the tragic loss of thousands of lives. I knew that my dream was from God and was related to that event. As I watched the news over the next week I was amazed to see the illustrations of the frame of the building. They explained how the frame collapsed on the top of each floor below. I knew this was the frame that I saw in my dream. So why did God show me this? A small portion of the reason was personal. In the days that followed that catastrophic event I knew deep in my spirit that God was speaking something momentous to me and that He would show me more in His timing. The larger portion of the reason He gave the revelation was because of the significance of the event. That one event changed the world in many ways. It proved that even the world’s greatest economy and strongest military was not immune to the instability and darkness that was rising in the world.
Political, Social, and Religious Earthquake in the Middle East
I had a dream on March 30, 2010 of a great earthquake in Egypt coming in the near future. In the dream I saw crowds of people in the streets of Egypt. Then the ground began to shake under them. God linked this dream to another dream He gave me. The second dream took place in Jerusalem. I was standing southeast of Old Jerusalem with my wife and it was night. I could see the temple mount to my left, the East Gate, and to my right was the Mount of Olives. I said to my wife,”When the feet of Jesus touch there the whole Earth will shake.” In the dream I could sense that the return of Jesus was going to occur at any moment. It was as if the Egypt and Jerusalem dream were one dream. It was clear that Egypt was linked to the end of the age but I did not completely understand. At that time you rarely heard about Egypt. I began to ask God why Egypt was so important. Eleven months later (February 2011) I received my answer. That is when the news was flooded with reports of the “Arab Spring” and the significance of Egypt became clear.
At first I did not know if the earthquake in my dream would be a real earthquake or symbolic. Now it has become clear that it was a political, social, and religious earthquake. Many major news networks gave descriptions of the events as “earthquakes and aftershocks” throughout the region. There have also been many declarations that this will “completely change the region”. Middle East experts have stated that historically the surrounding Arab countries tend to follow the direction Egypt takes. This dream was bigger than Egypt. Egypt represented a shift in the region that would have global impact. Within the first year of the “Arab Spring” in Egypt many disturbing things have happened:
- Radical/extremist Islam took power through the Muslim Brotherhood.
- The constitution was changed to 100% Islamic Sharia Law.
- Israel was declared Egypt’s number one enemy.
- The new president of Egypt called Jews descendants of apes and pigs.
- The U.S. embassy was attacked as the crowd burned the American flag and chanted, “Obama, we are all Osama.” They were referring to Osama Bin Laden.
- And persecution of Christians has increased in Egypt.
The political, social, and religious earthquake in the region has strengthened the extremists of Islam. Why was the political, social, and religious earthquake linked to the end and the return of Jesus in my dream? Because this movement will grow to trigger war and will open the door for the Antichrist to step in. This will lead to alliances between many nations that will help form the Beast kingdom of Revelation 13:1-4. Ezekiel 38, Ezekiel 39 tells of a coming attack on Israel "in the latter days" by Persia (Iran), Ethiopia (the old boundaries of Ethiopia would include part of Sudan), and Libya; all of which are Islamic countries. Also mentioned are Gomer and Togarmah of the north. Gomer is easily traced to what is now Turkey (another Muslim country) and Togarmah of the north would be the part of Gomer to the north. The Bible also states that Magog (Russia) will be in alliance against Israel. The war and the chaos of the Middle East will facilitate the Antichrist stepping in. The Bible says he will speak constantly of world peace and security (Daniel 11:21-24 & 1 Thessalonians 5). He will be a key player in resolving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict through a peace treaty that follows the terrible war between Israel and their Arab neighbors. This peace treaty will be made for seven years, but he will break it in the middle of that last seven years (Daniel 9:27; Joel 3; Amos 1).
Massive Air Raid and a Major War
I had a dream on Wednesday, February 22, 2012 that I was in the sky alongside a massive air raid. The planes were spread out as far as the eyes could see. It seemed to be far more than 100 fighter jets. In the farthest distances from my position I could see many objects moving fast. I could not tell if these objects were more fighter jets or missiles. Then my line of sight was turned toward the ground below. The fighter jets that were close to me dove down I began to see large explosions. I saw explosion after explosion all over the ground below. These different explosions were spread across great distances. Then I heard a voice say, “127,000 people killed”.
I knew I was with the “right side” on this attack and that it was related to Israel attacking Iran to prevent them from developing nuclear weapons. I could not tell if the U.S. was with them or not. Since the “127,000 people killed” came after it was all over, I believe God said that to make something clear. After this attack the escalation of war and retaliations of the strike will have world-wide implications. The escalation after the attacks will be a major war involving many nations.
India, Oil Crisis, and Global Economic Crisis
I had a dream on Sunday, January 13, 2013 about India. I could see crowds of Indians lined up for gas, but little or no gas was available. There was turmoil and crisis in India. For some reason oil supplies and gas distribution was paralyzed. I could hear other countries talking all around me saying that they needed to do something to try and help the situation.
India is second only to China as the fastest emerging market in the world. The global economy is on the verge of major drops in 2013. Growth in China and India has helped the global economy stay out of a complete plunge. If India enters turmoil and crisis the blow to an already fragile world economy would be dire. The dream is beyond India alone. The greater the global economic crisis the closer the world comes to establishing a global economic governing body. An oil and energy crisis is a blow to every economy in the world. An oil and energy crisis would also cause a change of alliances for some countries. Oil-rich Muslim countries would gain alliances. Put all this in the context of the multiple dozens of countries that have exploded the amount of money they are printing and the world is on the verge of a currency crisis. The rate at which we are printing money will end in a world-wide currency collapse in the very near future. This will help accelerate the global economic system that was foretold in Revelation 13:16-17.
I know God is not silent on what is happening in the world. May we treasure God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ with a sincere faith until the very end. Amen.
