I’ve sat on this for a while. It’s still with me, so I’m putting it out.
In a recent posting I spoke of 2 Samuel 5:24, the sound of marching in the treetops. I believe it has started!
“And it shall be, when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the mulberry trees, then you shall advance quickly. For then The LORD will go out before you to strike the camp of the Philistines.” 2 Samuel 5:24
Today, I recalled and relived a vision from 6-7 years ago. I was sitting here, in my living room, listening to the steady ‘tromp — tromp — tromp…’ of a large force of Warrior Angels marching to a steady drum beat.
It’s not a slow beat, neither is it particularly fast. Just a steady marching pace of about 80-90 paces per minute — yes, I timed it on my watch!
There’s more to the sound though. There’s a faint echo of musical instruments being tested, tuned, even being practiced.
All of a sudden the whole army swings into view as they march across the borders of the land. About twelve abreast, in columns of thirty or so, there’s a long line of these ‘blocks’ of soldiers marching, and there appear to be several blocks abreast of each other too!
The army is vast — much bigger than I first imagined — I’m not good a guessing crowd sizes, but I would put a conservative estimate in the millions.
\And here’s the thing. I can see their faces and they all appear to be happy and relaxed, but concentrating and paying close attention to orders.
What an amazing sight!
My attention is drawn to location. There appears to be quite a lot of dust swirling around. The endless columns of soldiers are marching past large rocks and boulders, and yes, I can see they’re in somewhat mountainous territory with more soldiers, this time on horseback, watching over the whole scene from high vantage points all along their route.
I cannot see an obvious place from which they’ve come or to which they’re headed, but I’m pretty certain they are in or near Israel.
“Is this Armageddon?” I wonder, but I don’t get an answer.
I ask The LORD for clarification . I hear, “This is the Army of The LORD, the Host of Heaven, preparing for battle.”
“It’s a big battle…” I observe, “is this Armageddon, LORD?”
A gentle voice at my ear says, “That’s not your concern. Your concern is timing! This is very soon.”
I turn to find a large, burly Angel watching with me, a chariot standing just behind him.
Suddenly, I’m in the chariot and we’re flying over the scene. I see what appears to be a battle formation being drawn up either side of a valley.
A smallish plain, no more than five miles across, separates the two formations. Pointing to the Heavenly Army, my Angel driver says, “They’ll get no further than this.”
He was referring to another army I could see forming on the other side of the valley. This valley was not in my country, I thought. “No, this is in the heavenlies….” said my Angel driver, as if hearing my thoughts and responding.
Then we were off again. I watched the scene rush by as we flew off in the chariot. I wondered where we were going.
“Do you want to see the King?” asked the Angel cheerfully. He didn’t wait for my answer, we just traveled on at an alarmingly fast rate. We kept going for a while and eventually I could make out people and horses — still at a distance.
Just as suddenly as we had taken off, so suddenly I was standing watching a largish group around one who stood out like a beacon.
He shone so brightly I could barely see Him, the shining haze around Him was so bright. My Angel motioned me to kneel.
“LORD, you asked me to bring this one before you!” he called out.
My heart leaped. It was The LORD Himself. Then I felt a His peace.
“I have brought you here to see for yourself the preparation and readiness in heaven for this day.
Go, tell My People what you have seen. Tell them how short time is!” He said.
My mind was awash with questions like, “Why me?” “Don’t they already know?” “Me?” “Really?” “Why will they listen to me?”
He answered, “Because you are willing. They know — but they don’t really believe it.
And YES you, because I have already placed My Words in your mouth.”
Then He chuckled, “Go on then!”
At this I was back in the chariot flying back whence we’d come — and then I was back in my living room, writing all this down on my iPad — before I lost it all again — as if I’m going to forget this!
Almost as a post script, yesterday I saw a video by Eric Brandon Maldonado, which prophetically spoke about the next seven years in terms which sounded remarkably like the three and a half good years followed by three and a half bad years — rather like the tribulation period.
I make no comment on the video except that it seems to confirm this Vision — at least in part.
It’s coming folks, it’s coming! Get ready! Stay ready! In awe and trembling!
