I am going to share two encounters I had with the Lord which pertain to the times ahead. I do not know the exact timing of the unfolding but I know God is faithfully warning His remnant ahead of time. On the 4th April (which was 10th Aviv/Nisan), I half-surfaced from sleep at about 3am, and saw a scene unfolding in front of me. A lighthouse was beaming its light in a very dark stormy night. At its base, on the rocks, a man with a megaphone was shouting the same phrase over and over at the boats tossing on the sea, “Flee to the Name of Jesus. There is no other Name under Heaven by which men may be saved.” There was a large skull suspended in the sky above the water. Then I saw people fleeing like ants from a city with the same large skull in the sky above the skyscrapers.
A third scene appeared in which a woman was scrolling through an online website, marking garments she wished to purchase when lockdown was over. Suddenly a big fist with a skull drawn on its knuckles broke through the laptop screen and struck her.
The final scene was a close-up of a woman dressed in historical peasant garments, carrying a baby and holding the hand of another small child as she fled from a city, which had black swirling vapor spreading in the air above the city and the same skull and crossbones suspended above that. The black vapor was beginning to swirl out of the city and down the dirt road, but she was already quite a way away. Her head was down and she did not look left or right, but hurried along the road ahead of her. The road was littered with belongings like pots and pans and suitcases which people had cast aside as they had fled. During every scene, the same words were sounded, “Flee to the Name of Jesus. There is no other name under Heaven by which men might be saved”.
I came out of this vision/dream suddenly, filled with a great burden for souls going to a lost eternity and an awareness that something worse than corona virus was coming. I had so many questions – did the skull represent the New World Order or Death… or both? Did the black vapor represent release of a new virus or radiation or both? Was the New World Order responsible for the black vapor or did it represent something natural that brought death, a judgement of God upon the wickedness in the city? Was the woman’s period costume a veiled clue to a time period when another pandemic plague laid waste to humanity? The fist striking the woman on her laptop seemed to allude to some kind of judgement for the state of her heart and that perhaps she had been lulled into a slumber by materialism and the striking would take her unawares while glued to her device. I lay praying in tongues and asking for understanding and the Lord pointed out that the woman with the children had heeded the call to flee and had understanding of the times. She was focussed and moved urgently and, as a result was ahead of what was unfolding. Father brought a scripture from Isaiah 22 to mind. It expressed the response of people who had no understanding of what they ought to be using the time provided to do:
Isa 22:12 And in that day the Lord of Hosts called to weeping and mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth. Isa 22:13 Then, lo, joy and gladness, slaying oxen and killing sheep, eating flesh and drinking wine, saying, Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!
Later, I also remembered another scripture which said ‘Come out of her, My people that you may not share in her plagues'(Rev 18:4) in a chapter describing the judgement on Babylon. This made the fleeing from the city in the dream both spiritual and literal. As I lay in the darkness, in my mind’s eye I saw people on lockdown cleaning out cupboards and setting their homes in order, working on their gardens. I saw board-games and much entertainment online, and heard the words, “Idols, idols, idols, self-gratification”. Beloved, God intends this time of lockdown to be a time of spiritual housecleaning primarily. Yes, one can spring-clean and tidy up and accomplish to-do lists, but the most important thing is to take spiritual inventory; to do spiritual house-cleaning; to get your spiritual affairs in order. In a day when God is calling for sackcloth and repentance, it is not wise to be found feasting and indulging in idle entertainment. That woman scrolling through endless garments online had no understanding of the times and was severely affected because of this.
In the days that followed this dream, it continued to weigh heavily on me and I waited for more understanding. I researched the Bubonic Plague which struck brutally in the 1300’s, killing 60% of Europe’s population and manifesting with boils and lesions on the skin. Perhaps a pestilence with similar symptoms would be next… Then I was directed to a message by Sadhu Selveraj concerning what is coming after the corona virus and he confirmed that there is another pandemic to be unleashed, manifesting in open sores on the skin and causing terrible pain and death. Sadhu also urged people to prepare and use the time wisely in this year 5781.
Finally on the 9th April, I was woken up at 2:30am with the knowledge that there is only one message the Church will be proclaiming during the days of the great darkness. The lighthouse represents the true Church of Jesus Christ, which arises and shines during the dense darkness that is upon the peoples of the world. The message they broadcast provides light to find a safe pathway for those affected by the strength of the storm. If they heed the message, they will not be shipwrecked; “Flee to the Name of Jesus. There is no other Name under Heaven by which men might be saved.” This is the shout that will bring in the last great harvest, no matter what is unfolding around us. We are returning to the exquisite simplicity of the Gospel. And we are to keep sounding forth that message, no matter how dark and dangerous it gets. That man was standing right at the edge of the rocks with his megaphone. A wave could easily knock him into the sea, but he had no concern for his own safety. His passion was to help the perishing.
As I pondered this, the Lord began to speak:
” When they set the prices for food, you will know it is here; it has begun.”
“What has begun?” I asked.
“The Beast Kingdom. I will provide for you as I did for My children in Egypt during the famine. There will be Goshens; endtime refuges, and Josephs who supply what I have instructed them to store up. I will multiply meals – the loaves and fishes are the prototype. Lift up what you have and bless it, no matter how small, and I will feed all at the table with that offering. The animals will come and lay themselves down willingly, that you may use them to feed a multitude.
These will be days of glory and days of miracles. News media will come like bees to a honey pot and compete to carry the stories of My hand moving. And yes, this exposure will bring persecution, but I will shine brighter and brighter in you, and those who seek to harm you shall be blinded as in the days of Lot, when they sought to break down the door to lay hold of him. My angels know their dispatch orders and they stand ready to go to their posts protecting My elite. My doves shall not be slaughtered before their time. Only the rich shall hide in the caverns of the rocks, but you shall be rich in the presence and power of Heaven in these days.”
The fact that the Lord referred to the Beast Kingdom, suggests that the skull I saw in the sky and above the sea is part of the rising of that kingdom (Rev 13:1). Rev 18:8 also lists pestilence, sorrow and famine, followed by fire as part of the judgements on Babylon. Terrible things are coming on the earth and we must strengthen our faith and stock up our spiritual store-cupboards while we still have time. Devour the Word; hide it in your heart and teach your children to do the same. Yes, we can freely read our Bibles in the West now, but the days are coming when the owning of a Bible will get you arrested. Ask God to open your eyes and ears in ever increasing clarity, that you may know what He wants you personally to do to prepare.
Remember above all, that the recurring theme of the dream was that the Name of the Lord is a strong shelter. The righteous run into it and are safe! He is our Rock of Refuge and has promised protection to His doves, as they carry out kingdom business, therefore we will not fear. I have been learning Psalm 46 by heart, planting these words deep in its soil, that they may nourish and encourage me in the days ahead. I suggest you do the same. The following scripture really puts in a nutshell, what the Spirit is saying to us all.
Luk 21:31 Even so, when you see these things taking place, understand and know that the kingdom of God is at hand. Luk 21:32 Truly I tell you, this generation (those living at that definite period of time) will not perish and pass away until all has taken place. Luk 21:33 The sky and the earth (the universe, the world) will pass away, but My words will not pass away. Luk 21:34 But take heed to yourselves and be on your guard, lest your hearts be overburdened and depressed (weighed down) with the giddiness and headache and nausea of self-indulgence, drunkenness, and worldly worries and cares pertaining to [the business of] this life, and [lest] that day come upon you suddenly like a trap or a noose; Luk 21:35 For it will come upon all who live upon the face of the entire earth. Luk 21:36 Keep awake then and watch at all times [be discreet, attentive, and ready], praying that you may have the full strength and ability and be accounted worthy to escape all these things [taken together] that will take place, and to stand in the presence of the Son of Man.
May you dig deep into the Rock of Ages and find abiding shelter and peace in His shadow, as you prepare for the journey ahead.
