“The great day of The LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of The LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, a day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against The LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of The LORD’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.” Zephaniah 1:14-18
This is a very severe Message from this morning — but even though the message is very clearly concerned with the dark days ahead, a person must also know that those who trust in Him, will make it through unto the end.
However, it was very clear to me from what I was shown, that many people will be rushing to-and-fro, attempting to evade the violence from others.
The Angel from above looking down upon the world, clearly was very set and ready for the judgment to come.
Throughout this Word I was shown a very dark sky and an Angel was blowing a horn from above. The Angel’s face was very stern and set in his gaze.
Then I saw people running in fear from others who were trying to kill them.
“Stand upon the highest point of this world and what would you see?
You would look out upon the landscape below. You would behold rivers and hills and cities, but you wouldn’t see people.
You would see My Creation and everything around you — but when I come in the clouds on that day, I will see mankind. I will behold everyone.
It will be a day of intense warfare and destruction. People will be running in the fear from the intense things that are happening.
Only those who put their Faith and Trust in Me will be sustained through those days.
Many do not know what is coming. Many of your prophetic leaders and teachers, do not know as well.
They have shut their eyes to the truth. Many even of the Apostolic community, have chosen rather to strategize and build-up doctrines.
For indeed these things are important but the more weightier matters should be in preparing the body for what lies ahead.
Truly I will sustain you through these days but you will have to put your full trust in Me.
I will give you My Wisdom and I will help you to prepare, but you will need my fortitude and endurance above all else.
You must be able to hear My Voice, and you must be able to distinguish that from your own!”
