A Word of Desolation Decreed
The Lord spoke to me in a dream about Isaiah 13. I would like to share it with you.
The first thing He said was: "My people must open their eyes, for the day of the Lord is close at hand."
Whither we like it or not, whither we want to believe it or not, we are at the end of the age, and as He said: The "Day of the Lord" is quickly approaching. Isaiah speaks of it in the thirteenth chapter.
In verse one he begins his reflection on Babylon and its ultimate end. Perhaps Isaiah at first considers a destruction in a more imminent future to his own time, but by the time he finishes the details of what he has seen, all readers realize he is talking about a much wider scope of time and events.
Babylon is a symbolic name as well as the name of an actual place. While the events that Isaiah foresaw many times regarding the literal place of Babylon have already taken place, the full and complete scope of events regarding mystery Babylon have not.
Isaiah reflects on some rather ominous images regarding the ‘day of the Lord’ as it pertains to Babylon which in reality is the same Babylon of Revelation ch. 18 and Jeremiah ch. 51. Isaiah cries out it seems, almost in anguish as he replays what he sees. "The Lord of host musters his host for battle." v4. Is.13:6 "Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. V7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt. And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them. They shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth. They shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners out of it." He further speaks of the sun, moon and stars withdrawing their light. And the Lord tells him; "I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud cease. V12 I will make man more precious than fine gold. V13 I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of host in the day of his fierce anger. V18 Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of their womb; their eye shall not spare children." He essentially concludes his warning with the fact that it will be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. What a disconcerting thought! As I mentioned earlier, John saw this same thing on the Isle of Patmos and recorded it in the book of Revelation.
We are about to see severe economic depression and collapse in one nation after another. The Lord revealed to me in a vision a couple of years ago I believe, that every nation is going to be set back in time about 30 to 40 years. This will effect economics, and materialism right at the core of every nation and all peoples. Further, we are going to as I mentioned in the first newsletter of this year, see a sharp increase of terrorism. I felt it would start by the end of the year. Whither that turns out to be the case or not, the word of the Lord is that serious terrorist attacks are going to begin to assail this country. I now feel that we have, as one man said, opened Pandora’s Box, with our recent strikes in the Middle East. This could be the very trigger for the attacks we will start experiencing. Further, the nations of the world are going to enter a new and greatly increased measure of calamities, as an increased wake-up call to repentance. Finally, war is coming as the nations of the world are soon to be gripped with the labor pains of the last days.
Who or what is this mystery Babylon? Some say America, and that is true in one sense! Moreover, it is all nations and peoples of the world that refuse allegiance to the Lord. It is virtually a universal destruction of the sinner and the nations they inhabit. The only hope any man has in an hour such as we are about to enter, is to find his refuge in Jesus Christ. We must not only call Him Lord; He must be our Lord if we are to be kept safe from the most horrific storms, which are just ahead.
In respect to the Church, the prophet Daniel said, if we are pure, we would shine like the stars. On the other hand, if we continue to be lovers of the world, and the ways of the world, then we are constituted sinners and will therefore be destroyed with the world we love. Consequently, my dear friends, now is the time to make your lives as pure and holy before the Lord as you can, that in the coming hour, you may be found in the pavilion of His protection. When men are experiencing the greatest anguish ever known to man, you and yours will be safe, for you will belong wholly to Christ. That isn’t to say that you will not pass through some rough times, as I just mentioned, you will! Many of you are, even now. Again, the times are going to get systematically more difficult, as we enter into times that are more severe than anyone has ever known. However, as I have shared many times there is no need for fear, for, even in that God will be your stay and support, if you are set apart from worldly lust unto Him alone.
As we watch the time clock of eternity continuing to click off the minutes, we are now looking at approximately 2 minutes to midnight. Midnight is the hour judgment will fall in a most severe way. So, be ready! Be holy, so you can be protected!
Before leaving the thoughts we are discussing in this article, I want to offer one encouragement. God’s heart can be changed, and times can be altered. The Lord said to me, "even now as we are sitting at the door of this horrific wave of judgment, He is looking for a people who will cleanse themselves through repentance and separation from the world and will come before Him like Esther and plead on behalf of the nations of the world that He might feel justified in holding back judgement. In referring to the statement I just quoted, His preceding words were: "If My church would." I don’t know how great a response He would expect in order to justify a favorable response. I shall seek Him on this. But, until He reveals His heart further, we must take action at least on behalf of our own souls, repent and turn away from the world with a real abruptness and not regret the cost. At least in this way, we and our families will be protected.
The Horror of Great Darkness
While in prayer on July 28 I saw a vision. I saw a great beast with huge jaws, and sharp teeth, such as a great dragon would have. Its fingers were bony with long talons or claws. It looked like a monstrous dark cloud and was moving at a moderate pace to engulf all of Russia. It was coming up from the south and moving upon the north fully intending to take complete dominion over all of Russia.
I was at length given to see its heart, and motivation. It was on a path of conquering to destroy. Its heart was one of steal hatred for the Russian people. Through lust, pride, anger and hate it would cause the Russian people to once again rise up against the Christians and Jews to persecute and murder them. Its hope was to utterly wipe out anything that had anything to do with God and the Light. So, his plan was to incite in the heart of the people a venomous heart of murder to accomplish his goal of obliterating both. His hatred however, for the Russian people at large was as great as it was for the church for instance, it was just different.
I also saw the hearts of the government leaders. They had absolutely no care for the people. Power was the driving motivation of their activities. The more this evil power overtakes Russia, the more this will be true. I would only know how to equate what I saw to someone like Hitler. It was fearful to see this national possession take place. The Russian Christians and Jews are already going through so much, it seems incomprehensible that they could go through more. Admittedly, the knowledge of this approaching great persecution is not new. But, I now have a little clearer insight into it, and see that it is now eminent.
The Lord called it; the horror of great darkness. As this evil presence continued to move over the nation, I saw famine and great hunger, until the nation looked like an emaciated child that was dying of hunger.
As my heart filled with mercy for the Christians, Jews, and those who would be evoked into being the persecutors alike, Jesus strongly impressed me, to call the people into His hiding place and protection. Further, I prayed that as many as could, would leave the nation. I was overwhelmed with the Lord’s sadness and compassion for the people as I wept with Him. Needless to say, Russia needs our prayers and heartfelt tears before God. Please remember that God’s hand of mercy is still extended to the Russian people and there are yet many to be saved.
While in prayer on my birthday, the 16th of August, the Lord spoke to me about Sweden.
Sweden is going to experience national bankruptcy. Many calamities are assigned to Sweden for a warning unto repentance. There will be massive fires, floods, and winds whipping at 300 miles an hour, leaving much destruction.
I see what will appear to be a sudden takeover of Sweden as well as the other Baltic nations by the One World Government.
Yet, God will be a stronghold to His people. He will be a refuge in the time of trouble, shade to the weary and a help to those who have lost their way. Further, I see a tremendous move of God assigned to this country, with many miracles by the hand of God. God is virtually going to sweep over this nation with His might and His power in a huge wave of His holiness. Many believers are going to experience angelic visitations during this great awakening.
THE LION FROM THE TRIBE OF JUDAH
While ministering in Indianapolis in July, I was suddenly taken to heaven where I saw the coming forth of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. He was at first fearful to behold, which I expressed to the Lord who, incidentally was standing beside me. Admittedly however, He was also it seemed the most beautiful Creature I had ever seen. He is symbolic of a particular office of our Lord, so it was little wonder that He was so magnificent. He was wearing a most glorious crown. When I expressed my fear the Lord removed it by placing His peace in my heart. I knew this too was a prophetic statement. To the unrepentant, His coming will be a fearful thing. To the repentant He will be an image of peace.
On August 21, while in prayer, God again opened the spiritual veil. Crouched down in front of me, I again saw The Lion of the Tribe of Judah. He had a crown on His head. Suddenly He threw back His head and roared. The words were immediately spoken: "He roars, and the nations are shaken. The nations tremble at the sound of His voice. He roars and His judgments are spiraled at the nations of the world. But, He is a refuge for His people in the time of trouble". As the Great Lion roared, my whole being was filled with the fear of the Lord. After this brief opening of the veil, I felt strongly compelled to look up pertinent scriptures regarding the Lion of the tribe of Judah. This is what I learned.
Genesis 49:8-12, Says He is government.
Numbers 23:24, Teaches that He brings judgment to His enemies.
Proverbs 19:12, The Kings wrath is like the roaring of a lion.
Jeremiah 4:6-8; 49:19; Lam. 3:10,11; Hosea 5:14, 11:10-12, Says the Lion destroys His enemies.
In Amos 3:1-8 we find a strong admonition of warning. It says in verse 4, Will a lion roar in the forest when he has no prey? will a young lion cry out in his den if he have taken nothing? (Vs 6) Shall a trumpet be blown in the city and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in the city and the Lord hath not done it? (Vs 7) Surely the Lord God will do nothing but he revealeth it unto his servants the prophets. The Lion hath roared, who will not fear? The Lord God hath spoken, who can but prophesy? (KJ)
I have seen the Lion of Judah roar, now I cannot help but prophesy. I am blowing the trumpet in the city of God and to all who will hear in the nations. Once again, we see in this a strong warning about the impending perils of the near future. God is going to bring forth continued judgment through exposure of sin, calamities, sickness and even death on the unrepentant. I have spent some time now seeking the Lord about the events that are to occur in the fall. What I have been sharing with you in this letter is a brief compilation of His answers. This fall beginning with Rosh HaShanah we will see a new level of judgments begin to fall in the nations of the world. What we are now seeing take place with regard to the White House is an example of what is to be included in the list of judgments. What is going on with our president is designed to make us all fear the mighty hand of God. What He is doing with him, He will do with many before He is finished. People in state and local governments, ministers, CEO’s, doctors, lawyers, the saved and the unsaved alike, the list will go on and on; none will be exempt from the dealings of our Holy God. God will not be mocked. Those who sow to the flesh will reap God’s judgement, even unto destruction if there is no repentance. The Lion shall roar, and the nations shall tremble!! So, this is no time to as Christians gloat over the exposure of wrong doing regarding our President. Rather, it is a time to pray for him and his family, and our country, and it is a time to search our own hearts to see to it that we are not offending God, lest we too experience His judgments!
I have been given other visions regarding what will take place beginning this fall. However, I am not going to share them with you now. I will wait until the next newsletter.
The great revival is growing closer. We need it, we must continue to pray for it, as the Lord sincerely wants to grant it. It will be a time of great refreshing for all who are willing to jump into the waters.
