"The greatness of mankind will shortly be overshadowed by the evil forces of darkness that have set traps and lain in wait for the unsuspecting to stumble and fall; and great will be the fall of mankind.

Just as I told Joshua, so too I tell you, there is sin in the camp. The church of The Living God lies in tatters with none to repair. Seldom comes a message of conviction of sin to My church. Seldom do the wayward hear the truth of My gospel.  Shepherds have taken their mantel and exchanged it for fame, fortune...Religion but not Righteousness. Hype but no hope.

You have much to learn as you move closer to My throne room. My heart yearns to draw My children closer, but many keep a distance that brings doubt and fear but little faith or commitment. Where are you My children? Where are you? Too much has been left to the wolves and now the sheep have been driven away from the Good Shepherd by the hirelings. Keep your eyes on Me and your garments clean. Guard the door of My sanctuary, watch and pray. I come quickly."

" Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their own sight!…" Isaiah 5:20-21
"You have not kept charge of My holy things but have appointed others to keep charge of My sanctuary for you." Ezekiel 44:8

  1. Good morning,
    The Lord gave me a snapshot yesterday morning. I saw a mass of terrified people running towards me with complete darkness behind them. I also remember the male in the front wore a white t-shirt with a leather jacket (like the Fonz on Happy Days).

    1. Most interesting. Perhaps you will receive the interpretation and share it with us. Thanks and LORD bless.

    2. I was hoping you may have an interpretation :) I think the "Fonz" represents the Hollywood style pastors leading the sheep into darkness. I also think that when the storms of judgment hit America, the misled will all run to Jesus. The Way, The Truth, and The Life.

    3. I agree with your interpretation. Holy Spirit has spoken to me on more than one occasion that when judgement comes many will seek answers. We, His children must have oil in our lamp and be prepared to give an answer to those that are perishing for lack of wisdom. LORD bless.

    4. Amen. I want to be ready always to have His answers and be His representative. Thank you :)

    5. One summer evening I saw many moths frantically gathered about a light, I felt the Holy Spirit saying that is how it will be when judgment comes to America. Many who would not listen will be frantic to hear from someone who has the light of Christ.

    6. I saw moths come out of the mouths of false prophets. They worried the light and obscured it with all their vain fluttering. By morning, their needless worries had left them dead in exhaustion beneath the light.

  2. Thank you, Ali. I'm reminded of the following verses:
    John 10:4-5
    4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
    5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

    I'm hearing strangers in church. I wonder if this is why there is a mass exodus in the church world now.

    I'm praying we clearly hear our Master's voice and follow Him only.

    God Bless You.

    1. Yes, as the days grow darker, the strange voices will grow louder. We must pray and stay in His Word. LORD blessings to you.

    2. I think there is a mass exodus because people are getting sickened by empty spiritual gifts that look foolish, accomplish nothing for the good of the saints, except a lot of charged feelings that don't hold up when reality gets rough. The strangers in the church are those who lift up false words and try to find ways to excuse them. They are strangers because those who really belong there value truth and do not seek to lift up lying judgments made in the name of God Almighty. They are, in other words, strangers to truth.

      And, so, people are leaving the church because they do not like the vanity that they find there. They do not like the fact that those who appear to be most filled with the spirit, speak words in God's name that don't come true -- usually words of judgment against America for all of its sins, as if God cared more about what the non-Christians of America are doing than with people inside of churches who fool themselves because of their own spiritual pride into believing they speak for God. People are leaving because they are tired of the falsehood and the flattery of false prophets and the vanity of it all.

      People would flock in uncontrollable numbers to one church that had one person truly speaking the direct words of God with no showmanship at all, no offerings. It could be roadside chapel, and traffic would line up for a mile just to hear the true words of God, aptly and accurately spoken.

  3. I just ran across your blog, as followers of Christ, what do we do to prepare?

    1. Stop listening to false prophets. Look for a prophet who is always exactly accurate when he or she predicts things in God's name. Look for reliability. Look for someone who will stop speaking for God in humility if his or her words prove vain. In other words, look for something with SUBSTANCE. Something that is as durable as a diamond -- that can stand up to the scratch test of truth.

    2. Didn't Yahweh (God) always send the prophets to the people? I maybe wrong, but I don't think anyone should have to go look for a prophet.

    1. Some years ago I had a dream. In the dream I stood before a large banner which read: "Get Ready and Be Prepared." In the dream I heard myself ask, "how do I do this LORD.?" His response was: "You read My Word, you study My Word and you pray." LORD bless.

    2. Good enough. And then stop short of speaking it falsely in his name. Let him speak his own judgments for himself.

  5. My husband and I were talking about the condition of the churches in our area today. And the part about the wolves reminds me of a church we were going to for 17 years. The last 5 years we had a pastor that was sending sexual messages to girls and women and also having affairs. He was married. When he started on me and I found 4 others we told on him. He cried and said he had problems and would not do it again. The church board kept him and didn't tell the church what he was doing. The people were just thrown to the wolf in the pulpit. But to make a long story short, he eventually got fired from that church and went to three more and did the same. Having sex with women, breaking up familes and sending sexual messages to girls on the internet. Every church was told when they hired him. They kept him anyway, throwing the families to the wolf in the pulpit. Some families will never recover and some people will go to hell because the men of the churches are too weak to take charge and do the godly and righteous thing any more.

    2. Difficult are the days. This is an extremely disturbing commentary on the church of the twenty- first century. Often Holy Spirit tells me we do not understand the magnitude of sin and filth in this world today. This man does not stand alone in his sin, many condoned, ignored and allowed this sin to go unchecked. I appreciate your sharing, it gives a true picture of the need to fast and pray. Indeed His judgements are long overdue. Lord bless you dear one.

    3. Thank you Ali! The LORD bless you too! It was a terrible time in our lives, to leave all of our friends. Our son was 13 at the time. That was the only church he had known. Things have never been the same but I know it was the right thing to do.

    4. Dear Karen, I'll say it: There is no point in sharing a man's specific sin when there is no help for him or us by the sharing of that information. This comment was only gossip and "entertainment"; did you want to point out how bad someone else was so we can all gasp and send up an "oh, lar'!"?
      Before you let that anger at my reply get too hot, know that I have "told on" and gossiped about people too. Why am I posting? Because, biblically, we need to STOP one another from these things. Scripture tells us to watch out for one another. It does not please God for us to gossip. I am no better and I need to be redirected...daily, we ALL do and when we get to a point where we think that isn't true we have become fools and lost. We are told to PRAY for the affected.
      We ALL sin and we sin when we are led astray by our OWN lusts. You and I? Do we want to be right before God SO BAD that we see the filth of others in NEON...I do, because I keep seeing mine in scarlet.
      I am being EVIL when I judge God's children for their sin.
      Judging is not trying to help them get right, but condemning them as lost and damned and beyond the saving grace of God. Praise God that He will guide us by His Spirit to correct our wrong behaviors when we repent and reject the behaviors our Lord detests.
      Karen, you sound like you were stalking this man. How in the world do you know all these things about him? You followed his "career" through 4 placements? WHY? HOW? You know his online postings? HOW is that possible? Even AFTER he left your church?!?! Karen, something is VERY wrong with all this...
      I am not trying to hurt you but to, as Ali would say, "be a watchman for other believers" just as I hope and pray for believers to be a watchman for me! Speak to our Lord about this, I think you may have some unrepentant sin of your own to expose and release. God Bless and keep you.

    5. The church of the Living God lies in tatters because it is riddled with false prophets who deceive the the people of God with doom and gloom that doesn't happen. They so false fears.

      It also lies in tatters because the many parishioners care less about truth than they do about having their ears tickled with the phony prophecies. Where the people care not about truth and make endless excuses for lies, they shall surely lie in tatters.

    6. What was shared was not gossip or entertainment at all, and you are very wrong to say it was. It gave no names and did not identify any church. By calling it gossip or entertainment, you seek to sweep those actions under the table just as those did who are part of that church. That is how such treachery is enabled.

      It does benefit it us all to hear it. It benefits those who experience the same thing by giving them courage to speak out. It benefits the rest of us by helping us realize we need to be vigilant against such acts. It benefits by making truth higher in importance that the shiny image of an untarnished church that is a tomb on the inside.

      I have seen things of this magnitude in Pentecostal churches where the the pastor who was committing (and even advocating practices that led to this) was revered by the assistant pastor to me "as a great man of God" who had "heard from the Holy Spirit" that husbands (like himself) should spiritually dance with other men's wives, in private rooms. The church became so full of adultery, that it broke apart, closed its doors and shuttered its windows. Yet, when I spoke to the Associate Pastor about the evil direction this would ultimately lead (before the breakup brought the end of the church), he decided he needed to pray for me that I'd see the light. I said that was fine so long as I could pray for him in the same prayer that he would see the light.

      He said that, yes, the church was suffering some heartache because of this practice, but "Sometimes God has to crush the grapes in order to make wine." I responded, "Yes, and sometimes all you wind up with is a handful of crushed grapes."

      And that is all they wound up with -- many broken marriages and a broken church and a bad reputation was spread throughout one of the nation's largest cities ... all because they didn't want to hear about how this practice was wrong, not even when it was spoken kindly.

      If people in the church were willing to listen to and talk about such things, maybe they would have changed course. They didn't want to hear anything bad said about what their pastor was doing. So, now they have no church at all.

      Whether the Assoc. Pastor ever saw the light, as I prayed he would when he prayed the same for me, I don't know. I didn't stick around to watch it all play out.

  6. Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their own sight!…"

    A word that could not be more aptly spoken over this site ...

    to those who would call lies, "truth;"
    to those who would call words of dark gloom that doesn't happen "enlightenment;"
    to those who would call a prophecy of doom and of heartbreak for a nation, "sweet" for the saints who are promised to be spared;
    to those who are so wise in their own eyes that they think and claim that their own words are the words of the Living Word;
    to those who are clever enough to try to twist actual events to fit the words of a prophecy that they do not fit at all and who then look at their own twisted correlation and say, "ah ha! The prophecy was right!"

    Apt words were never better quoted.
