Pastor Mike Signorelli tells the story about his grandma, when she had a dream of a man standing outside of her house, calling her to come out. She was startled by the dream, and after nights of having the same dream over and over, she finally got up in the middle of the night and walked outside of her house.
"As a child, she actually went to the front door of this small house in West Virginia, and in the middle of the night as she walked out, all of a sudden, to her astonishment, the whole house just collapsed; the roof of the house collapsed," Signorelli says. "See, what had happened was, God had divinely given to her this dream to save her life. That woman, Dorma, that was my grandmother, and see, the thing that she was being saved from was not just her death; there were nations inside of Dorma.
"You see, on the other side, she didn't know that there were preachers and prophets inside of her, that there were churches for New York City inside of her. It wasn't just about her; it was about who is coming next."
Signorelli compares this story to that of Abraham, to whom God said there were nations living in him too. And Satan knows the potential we have, which is why we experience spiritual warfare: We're being attacked because God is going to do big things in our future, Signorelli says on the Mike Signorelli podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network.
"The fight is always over what's in you," Signorelli says. "The enemy is not fighting for you. He's fighting you over what's next, what's coming out of you. It's unborn potential. That's what hasn't been realized yet. It's what hasn't happened yet that's being attacked."
