Yes, there are, and many books have been written about such modern-day prophecies, dreams or visions. But a difficulty is in stating specific denominations that endorse individual ones. There are a lot of para-church Protestant groups that support various denominations (not just one, but many) and will endorse or applaud those reported from other denominations. However, I have isolated two such examples endorsed by the group who printed their respective journals.
“The Acid Cloud, a Vision – Richard Smith This vision emerged
with an unusually vivid degree of clarity on Thursday morning the 29th
September 1994, just before I was about to go out and do some
studying. Following a period of pouring out my distressed feelings
about the condition of the Church to Jesus, I saw ahead of me a large
billowing black cloud which carried lots of soot and other pollutants.
Its sulphurous stench revealed that here was no natural cloud, but
rather it was the type of acid cloud which arises from the explosion
of some chemical plant or oil installation. Blown by its own momentum,
the acid cloud was rapidly heading towards a low waterless desert
plain which lay beneath some rocky mountains. Filling the plain were
all types of people, whom I understood represented the Christian
population of England…”
This article takes two A4 pages so I will just summarise now. The four groups of people stood for the intoxicated (closest to the cloud); then the fearful, then the angry, and at the back a smaller group who were the prepared.
Group 1 were laughing, dancing and singing, some lying prostrate while making animal noises. A conga-type line of them made their way into the cloud, not realising the spiritual danger they’d been sucked into.
Group 2 panicked in the face of the evil that was symbolised by the cloud.
Group 3 were angry at the menace of the cloud, shaking their fists, shouting, and vainly trying to fight the cloud in their own strength.
As those three groups were successively ‘eaten-up’ by the cloud, there would be silence, followed by ear-piercing howls of pain, silence, then moans and groans.
But the 4th group prepared themselves with anti-chemical suits, gas masks, safety helmets with lamps on. A bright red spot was above the lamps. Strapped to their sides were first-aid cases with red crosses on them. They carried transparent riot shields and weapons to fight the various principalities hidden in the cloud, while rescuing people. At God’s timing, they formed a line, linked shields, and marched into the cloud, ready to work very closely together.
The writer then applied 1 John 4:1-3 (to test the spirits). He was given to understand that the cloud covered much more than “the Toronto” phenomena which was but a beginning. Also, although many of the people were mainly from the charismatic / evangelical group, many clergymen in long robes, and with self-important looks on their faces, were included. Far more detail was provided but in summary, he was seeing that God’s judgement would pass over the church, to remove the evil within it. He concluded:
“This means that taken as a whole, the Toronto phenomenon does not
represent a time of refreshing, rather it represents what is perhaps
the first instalment of a VERY severe judgement on the churches in
this country.” [Author’s emphasis. He is part of Integrity Teaching
Services, of Leeds, which provides a Bible-based teaching service… by
invitation to various groups and churches (which is what I mean by a
para-Church support group, not a particular denomination).] Mainstream

Another magazine I have is called Prophecy Today, with an article by Clifford Hill detailing a vision he had of sheep in a field, just a few days before he first heard of the Toronto phenomenon. He believes it was given to him as a parable to warn of a great division coming upon the church – one which would bring much confusion and suffering among the flock. However, he is still a supporter in large measure of such charismatic events/groups, despite saying in that article that leaders like Benny Hinn use a method remarkably similar to the Hindu practice of using group laughter as a means of control to bring worshippers under the power of the guru. See Vol. 10 No. 5, September/October 1994, pp 10-13
Please let me add my disclaimer to such visions that are claimed to be prophetic – just because I report two of them does not mean to say I support the groups or individuals endorsing them. I have my own thoughts on their significance, more than quarter of a century later, for hindsight is a wonderful instructor, when viewed from a dispassionate stance. I say nothing about Joel 2 here.
In conclusion, an American Christian author e-mailed me on 20 April 2021, requesting prayer for the following:
“I’m privileged to be participating in a seriously ongoing
behind-the-scenes conversation with several other ministers to
understand how to biblically think about and address concerns many
have within the prophetic movement, particularly the gross errors and
false prophecies that have been coming out of the movement for many
years and seem to be reaching a dangerous tipping point in recent
times. This is both a learning curve and a sharing-of-wisdom moment.”
