"If you've got an atmosphere where there's radical self-expression, the Holy Spirit is radically self-expressive."
That's what Cindy McGill , evangelist, author and podcast host, says about her commission from God to take the message of the gospel through the power of dreams into the most unlikely of venues. She and her teams have gone everywhere from the Burning Man Festival to porn conventions, she tells host Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of the Greenelines podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network.
"God asked us to go," she says of the porn conventions. "And you know, there's a difference between going and being sent. And I felt like God was sending us, and I had a small network of women—women who are moms, who are grandmothers, who are people who have daughters and have grandchildren. And I thought, We've got people in there in this arena, who feel that no one loves them ... because of their behavior, because of what they've gotten themselves into. They feel dirty; they don't feel like they belong, or they feel they don't feel like God would ever reach into them, into their hearts."
McGill says her team entered the porn convention using what she calls the "fishing lure" of dream interpretation. "We went in there as the dreamers," she says. "And as we did, we would have just a few moments with these girls who had gotten themselves into this type of life. And we realized that most of them had been abused since they were young.
They told the young women, "We're dreamers; we come every year. We'd just like to interpret your dream for free. We just want to be able to give you a little insight or another pair of eyes on a dream you might have had when you were young."
That led to some amazing God-conversations, McGill says. "They would begin to open right up to us and talk to us and tell us a dream they had, which then gave us a little window into their life and what they were really meant for. ... through the telling of their dream, and they opened up to us, we said, 'Well, this is what you're meant for; the life that you're living now, it's what you've settled for. But this is what you're really made for. And God has a plan for you. And He has a purpose for you. And He has a design and a rich, fulfilling life for you. And He loves you right where you are, in all the choices that you've made. But He wants you to begin to move into a new road, a new pathway, a new way."
"And we had so much favor," McGill adds. "God anointed us to say, 'You've got a brand-new start; let's get you into your new life.'"
