For the past two weeks, as I have been praying for the nation and seeking God for more of His Heart, He has been showing me visions and speaking words about His coming judgement.
Although this may not be a popular topic with some, I have a new awareness of the times in which we are living. Along with it, God has given me a new desire to pray for Israel, and a new understanding of His heart, which is fully set on Jerusalem. There is no way this could be anything but Him, as my own heart has always been quicker to run after GRACE, and I have always preferred to hang out in the New Testament.
What I am learning from Holy Spirit is that the entire reason for THIS GRACE I love is because of HIS LOVE for His people. He has offered the way through Christ for all to be redeemed from the coming judgement! So, we must take the WORD in ALTOGETHER. Make no mistake, judgement is coming. HE is coming. And, PRAISE GOD, He is the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE! Praise God!
He is pouring out His Spirit on people in a new and greater way! If you are paying attention, you are seeing lots of people operating in the spirit of the prophetic; and although many are asking, “Who are these people?”, what we need to be asking is this, “What is the message God is speaking to His people?”
Weigh it out with prayer and study of the Word of God. Seek Him out for yourself. All I know is this, I have to be about my Father’s business, and I will be sharing what I am given to share.
I pray that God will reveal Himself to you through it. All Glory is God’s!
Awakened by THUNDER, a VISION, and His WORDS
I was awakened very early the morning of October 6th with the words, ‘Treacherous Thin Ice’.
I fell back to sleep, but was soon awakened again; this time by a loud clap of thunder and the words DAY 6 – JUDGEMENT, then again, TREACHEROUS THIN ICE. I was immediately aware the thunder was not in the natural, but understood it to accompany the word God brought to me, as well as all of this serving to wake me up FULLY!
Holy Spirit then gave me a vision of an ice skater, skating around on a lake, having a wonderful time! This skater was skating all over and enjoying the experience, completely unaware of the cracking ice under her feet and the dark and icy waters below.
The Word of the Lord came quickly with the vision, and saying,
“Skating on thin ice is bad because of what’s underneath you, not what’s above.
Beneath your feet, the ice cannot hold the weight of you, and so it cracks and as it begins to crack, you lose your balance, and the rest of your weight is moving forcefully, toppling you over.
You hit the ice with the fall and that is what is dangerous. Splitting the ice side open enough to fall into the deep and murky waters below, this is your downfall. It is certain when one falls onto thin ice that they will go through it, and this nation is skating right now, but will soon fall through the icy waters.
Abundance and lack – abundance of pleasures – skating merrily on the ice – a beautiful picture on the surface, but danger lurking just beneath your feet. So much so, that your body quivers from the knowing, but you just keep skating around it. That is not My way.”
I see the ice skater skating along to an area that is marked off and set aside as a DANGER ZONE, unknowingly, she is skating there without care or notice.
The Lord continues to speak, saying, “Yet, the time it takes to fall through here is INSTANT. There is no slow crackling of the ice to make a sound of warning beneath her feet. She just falls through instantly – in shock – into the icy waters.”
DAY SIX and the SIXTH SEAL
As I inquired of the Lord what He meant by DAY 6, He began to speak to me about the 6th SEAL and DAY 6. I haven’t been a great student of the Book of the Revelation, but I am finding that the Holy Spirit truly is my teacher and my guide through the learning I have experienced lately. He spoke these words to me about DAY 6, (Later, I also found it interesting that it was October 6th in the natural).
“Matters of a high nature in the world are being settled today in the nations. I rise to the occasion BRINGING the BEGINNING STORM of JUSTICE and RIGHTEOUSNESS.” (I saw the Lion of Judah come forth into my vision with a roar). He said, “Go ahead! Look up the 6th Seal! IT is of RIGHTEOUSNESS and you will find My mark of RIGHTEOUS JUDGEMENT in the day’s events.”
Then, He said, Revelation 6.
So I looked and as I looked, this is what I found. Revelation 6 foretells the tearing open of seals, which I did not know.
“I watched while he ripped off the sixth seal: a bone-jarring earthquake, sun turned black as ink, moon all bloody, stars falling out of the sky like figs shaken from a tree in a high wind, sky snapped shut like a book, islands and mountains sliding this way and that. And then pandemonium, everyone and his dog running for cover — kings, princes, generals, rich and strong, along with every commoner, slave or free. They hid in mountain caves and rocky dens, calling out to mountains and rocks, “Refuge! Hide us from the One Seated on the Throne and the wrath of the Lamb! The great Day of their wrath has come — who can stand it?” Revelation 6: 12-17 MSG.
In research following this, I found many scholars believing that the first five seals have already been broken. I would say it is apparent, even to the untrained eye, such as mine.
As I prayed, He also said, “Even the mountains will bow down.” then He took me to Zechariah.
Plunder will be piled high and handed out.
I’m bringing all the godless nations
to war against Jerusalem —
Half the city taken into exile,
the other half left behind.
But then God will march out against the godless nations and fight — a great war! That’s the Day he’ll take his stand on the Mount of Olives, facing Jerusalem from the east. The Mount of Olives will be split right down the middle, from east to west, leaving a wide valley. Half the mountain will shift north, the other half south. Then you will run for your lives down the valley, your escape route that will take you all the way to Azal. You’ll run for your lives, just as you ran on the day of the great earthquake in the days of Uzziah, king of Judah. Then my God will arrive and all the holy angels with him.
What a Day that will be! No more cold nights — in fact, no more nights! The Day is coming — the timing is God’s — when it will be continuous day. Every evening will be a fresh morning.
What a Day that will be! Fresh flowing rivers out of Jerusalem, half to the eastern sea, half to the western sea, flowing year-round, summer and winter!
God will be king over all the earth, one God and only one. What a Day that will be!” Zechariah 14:1-9
I will tell you that He also gave me visions that week of Him putting His feet down, and of Him standing up from His throne. As I am led to share these, I will. Until then, I continue to pray for our nation, and especially, to pray for Israel and all of the world.
Everything else will pass, but HIS WORD will remain. Let the people praise Him! He is the ALPHA and the OMEGA, the God who was and is and is to come!
