The picture below popped up on my feed this evening and my heart leapt within me! My spirit soared, and my eyes teared up!
The Holy Spirit quickened to me my old old posts of the lull before the storm — in 2017,18, & 20.
Something I missed in those old posts, was the silence in the midst of the lull! Today that silence is deafening!
There are moments when the heavens seem like brass. Ask any Intercessors.
There are moments when The Voice of The LORD seems to drop below a whisper — when all you can hear is that silence.
This old note, written around the time of the start of the Welsh Revival in 1904, encapsulates perfectly the situation today.
The future seems very dark right now, perhaps the worst since 1939.
The Nations and Governments are given more and more to ways of ever more and greater evil.
The mainstream Church is demonstrably in serious decline, both in attendance, and more importantly, in moral leadership.
Atheism, or at best agnosticism, is rampant throughout society.
Rioters and lawlessness are rampant. Everything seems dark and hopeless.
There is a silent lull – a tense sensing and waiting for the worst imaginable scenario to act itself out with the worst possible outcome for us all.
YET …. YET …. YET It’s always darkest just before dawn!
I see a glint of Light on the horizon. The prophets, me included, are all pointing to that faint light, and it’s growing!
The LORD speaks, “Son of man, Watchman, what do you see? Do you see the light of a new dawn approaching? Do you hear the sound of the wind rising as the Ruach of My Spirit builds up.”
He continues, “My Remnant Church is ready. The prayers of my intercessors have been heard — but don’t stop!
Keep pressing in to Me! Call Him in, make ready for His Presence, clear a place for Him to land!
For when He does, the enemy of your souls will fight, and wage war on all who call on My Name.
But to no avail, for victory is at hand, and I AM about to fulfill My Promises to renew and revive My People everywhere.
It’s time for ‘the Soul of your Nation’ to re-awake.
It’s time for Me to prepare My Bride — to make her ready, without spot or wrinkle!
Prepare My people, watchman, warn of My Approach, give them the good news of My Coming to awaken The Nations.”
The sound of silence is deafening today, but the sound of rejoicing is coming!
