Matthew 24:4-14 – “And Jesus answered and said to them, ” See to it that no one misleads you. 5 “For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. 6 “You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. 7 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. 8 “But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs. 9 ” Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. 10 “At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. 11 “Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. 12 “Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. 13 ” But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. 14 “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.” NASU
About 20 years ago while praying I saw something in my spirit that shook me to the foundation of my being and I wrote about it some in my first book. A few years ago I had a dream that was an expansion of that vision and out of it heard the Lord tell me to write it in a book and call the book “The Price of a Principled Life”. I have not accomplished that task but will complete it. What I saw in both instances was an America that I thought were scenes from a WWII movie with bombed out buildings and devastation everywhere. I saw tanks and troops in the streets, rioting, and looting and unbelievable carnage everywhere. I saw the traditional church powerless and people ignoring it but at the same time I saw a shadow entity that began to link together and formed the shape of a man across the nation and God identified it as the “True Church of Jesus Christ”. Invisible to the world but visible in the Spirit Realm and full of power! I saw things that I don’t know how to describe and in the vision, there were no time frames attached but in the dream, there were and all I am at liberty to say is we are not talking about years down the road but months.
America has been spared through the years, I believe because of two things: The Protection of God and the Display of His Power and Strength in His Church. We have moved from both during the past few years or decades and are in danger of being outside the protective covering of God and displaying weakness to our enemies to emboldening them to attack. A bully or coward will not attack someone they fear may defeat them. They pick on the weak and weak-willed and the view of many of our enemies has been that we have become soft and weak-willed, based on current foreign policies and attitudes toward our military. I’m not suggesting that our military is weak but it has been depleted of much of its resources or at least that is the perception of much of the world. I believe that a strong military is a deterrent against foreign attack. However, there is the other element I saw in the dream that was not in the vision and that was the attack from the inside. The rhetoric is already being laid out by calling for taking out people, and the destruction of certain races of people and that rhetoric has not been deterred by those elected to govern. The intense hate that is being encouraged in this nation is moving us away from God and toward a condition, the Bible calls “perilous times”. The lack of respect for the Bible that has been and is being displayed and the lack of respect for the Constitution of the United States are opening us up to an internal implosion that will bring utter chaos to the streets of America. We need Revival!
We have a mandate from God and as believers, we MUST act upon it or prepare our houses for the worst possible scenario and answer the question – “Can you die for your faith?” “Can you die for your family?” “Can you live totally by faith” I am more serious than I have ever been about anything. AMERICA IT IS COMING! It is coming to us! Church it is time that we called a solemn assembly and began “fasting & praying” for the survival and revival of America! Hear the words of Scripture:
2 Chronicles 7:14-15 – “…if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” NKJV
That is our mandate and if we do not take it to heart then do not say you were not warned! God does nothing without revealing it to his prophets. I’m not calling myself a prophet but he did say your young men shall see visions and your old men shall dream dreams, I’VE HAD BOTH and one confirmed and expanded the other! I trust what I have seen and know that it concurs with the Bible on more fronts than I have time to declare! This is my call, my plea for THIS NATION to FALL ON OUR FACES IN REPENTANCE AND PRAYER! Our nation, our families, our world depends on our response. If you have run with the footmen and they have wearied you, what will you do when horses come? If you’ve struggled in times of ease what will you do in times of trouble? Judgment is upon us and, I believe God is giving us an opportunity to see His hand of deliverance, but it is now in our hands!
John 9:4-5 – “We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work.” NASU We have been commissioned to “go into all the world and preach the gospel…” We have the assurance of God’s anointing, power, and protection. We have a mission and a commission and before the full brunt of PERILOUS TIMES steals multitudes and sends them into eternity lost – Let us spread the Good News of Salvation everywhere!
God bless you as you enter your weekend!
