When the Lord Jesus tells me to write a word from Him, typically, He speaks to me and/or gives me a picture or a vision. It is very rare for me to receive a dream from the Lord. Most of my dreams are just my mind processing the day. I think I can count on one hand the number of God given dreams I have had. Two of those dreams have been about Netanyahu. Both of those dreams involved terrorist attacks and the words, “he just won’t listen.”
Last night the Lord Jesus gave me a dream. The dream was guarded by Him. I felt His presence watching over the dream. The Lord also made me aware that there was a dark presence that was laughing. I asked the Lord to remove the dark presence. The Lord said, “pay attention only to me. Do not pay attention to the dark spirit.” I felt my body turn so that my back was to the dark presence. I could feel the Lord’s strong presence covering me.
In the dream I was in a small room. It was about the size of a closet. There was a person sitting next to me who was not identified but the sense was that this person was faithfully listening to Jesus. We were sharing a very small space, something like a desk but very small. We were huddled together and a unity in the Holy Spirit was tangible. In front of us was a screen with words and pictures as one might see watching a news broadcast. The screen was very small. There was a window behind us. The room was so small, the back of our chair almost touched the window. There was nothing else in the room. Our understanding was that we were seeing events happen that the Lord had previously warned would happen. We were watching scenes of war beginning, both on the screen and through the window. It was very serious and sobering. We were writing the words we saw on the screen and the Lord had us drawing lines that connected the words something like the way a dot-to-dot picture unfolds. Suddenly, a Youtube ‘end times pastor’ appeared in the doorway. This man is very political even though he promotes himself as an end times pastor. He was smiling and jovial. We could see there was a larger room behind him where people were seeing the same events on individual screens at individual desks, but they were either paying attention to something else or they were laughing and carefree. The pastor said, ‘looks like war is here.’ I responded, ‘the Lord has warned of this more than a few times.’ I then said, ‘John Shorey.’ The pastor laughed. Then the person next to me pointed to the word ‘September.’ Then the person pointed to a word and I said, ‘it’s the combination of two names.’ Then the pastor winked, shrugged and left the room. The person next me and I soberly looked at the word that was appearing. In the dream I could see the word, but the Lord blurred it so I would not write it. It was a name made from the combination of two names. Two leaders combined, and the time had begun. End of dream.
[I don’t know John Shorey and I need to look up who he is and if he has a connection to September] The Lord told me, ‘after March, after June’
This morning the Lord told me to write this:
Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind and said:
7 “Dress for action like a man;
I will question you, and you make it known to me.
8 Will you even put me in the wrong?
Will you condemn me that you may be in the right? (Job 40:7-8)
I have warned but the people called by My name will not listen. They are too busy with the things of the world. Idols that will not save them. Some hear and they complain. I say to ‘prepare’ and they say, ‘I am prepared. Stop telling me to prepare.’ I say, ‘prepare’ and they say, ‘I have stored up many goods. Stop telling me to prepare.’ I say, ‘prepare.’ They say, ‘I have already done all I can.’
Will you tell Me I am wrong so you can be right?
I tell you, great suffering is on your doorstep. The one who is prepared is the one who is tucked into Me, satisfied in Me, obeying Me, not their own imagined ideas of comfort.
Where is your thankfulness for My warnings? Why do you run to things instead of to Me? Idols will not save you. Idols will not provide for you in the coming suffering. When your belly is empty your idol will just stare at you with eyes that do not see.
Do you love Me? You say you do. I say to you, “do you love Me?”
Do you comprehend My love? Do you taste and know My goodness? Do you feel My great and patient love? Do you long for Me as a bride awaiting her groom?
I tell you, you are torn between two loves, yet you were betrothed to one husband. Where is your pure devotion to Me?
Great suffering is on your doorstep. You will look for relief, but none will come except that which you find in Me.
What the cutting locust left,
the swarming locust has eaten.
What the swarming locust left,
the hopping locust has eaten,
and what the hopping locust left,
the destroying locust has eaten. (Amos 1:4)
If they dig into Sheol,
from there shall my hand take them;
if they climb up to heaven,
from there I will bring them down.
3 If they hide themselves on the top of Carmel,
from there I will search them out and take them;
and if they hide from my sight at the bottom of the sea,
there I will command the serpent, and it shall bite them.
4 And if they go into captivity before their enemies,
there I will command the sword, and it shall kill them (Amos 9:2-4)
“We have a strong city;
he sets up salvation
as walls and bulwarks.
2 Open the gates,
that the righteous nation that keeps faith may enter in.
3 You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
4 Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.
5 For he has humbled
the inhabitants of the height,
the lofty city.
He lays it low, lays it low to the ground,
casts it to the dust.
6 The foot tramples it,
the feet of the poor,
the steps of the needy.”
7 The path of the righteous is level;
you make level the way of the righteous.
8 In the path of your judgments,
O LORD, we wait for you;
your name and remembrance
are the desire of our soul.
9 My soul yearns for you in the night;
my spirit within me earnestly seeks you.
For when your judgments are in the earth,
the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.
10 If favor is shown to the wicked,
he does not learn righteousness;
in the land of uprightness he deals corruptly
and does not see the majesty of the LORD.
11 O LORD, your hand is lifted up,
but they do not see it.
Let them see your zeal for your people, and be ashamed.
Let the fire for your adversaries consume them.
12 O LORD, you will ordain peace for us,
for you have indeed done for us all our works.
13 O LORD our God,
other lords besides you have ruled over us,
but your name alone we bring to remembrance.
14 They are dead, they will not live;
they are shades, they will not arise;
to that end you have visited them with destruction
and wiped out all remembrance of them.
15 But you have increased the nation, O LORD,
you have increased the nation; you are glorified;
you have enlarged all the borders of the land.
16 O LORD, in distress they sought you;
they poured out a whispered prayer
when your discipline was upon them.
17 Like a pregnant woman
who writhes and cries out in her pangs
when she is near to giving birth,
so were we because of you, O LORD;
18 we were pregnant, we writhed,
but we have given birth to wind.
We have accomplished no deliverance in the earth,
and the inhabitants of the world have not fallen.
19 Your dead shall live; their bodies shall rise.
You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy!
For your dew is a dew of light,
and the earth will give birth to the dead.
20 Come, my people, enter your chambers,
and shut your doors behind you;
hide yourselves for a little while
until the fury has passed by.
21 For behold, the LORD is coming out from his place
to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity,
and the earth will disclose the blood shed on it,
and will no more cover its slain. (Isaiah 26)
Dear friends, let us lay aside every weight and sin which slings so closely and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and Perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of God.
Come Lord Jesus!
May the grace of our Lord Jesus be with you,
