God's Warning of Things to Come

I just had a very disturbing dream, which I know was a warning of things to come. It felt like it wasn't far off, either. I don't share this to incite fear, but I feel people need to be warned so they can pray. Not only for the situation to be turned on the enemy's head, but for people to realize the seriousness of the moment they live in and get right with God without delay. Souls hang in the balance!

The Dream: I had been taken to a concentration camp for Christians, run by FEMA. At least, that is what it felt like in the dream. They were lining people up to kill them. I was trying to write a last-minute letter to my daughter, telling her I loved her and to be strong. We were given a chance to renounce Christ and the ones that would not were put to death. I couldn't find anyone to mail my letter to my daughter. I felt so sad that she would never know my final goodbye! I was standing in line, and as it became my turn to face death, I remember praying and surrendering my Spirit to the Lord, asking that He take my life before the enemy did. Nevertheless, it became apparent that I would face death at the hands of someone who delighted in evil and causing terror to Christians. End of dream.

Friends, God gives us warning dreams for a reason. He sends out His warnings as an act of His mercy. He wants us to realize that the enemy has very real plans to destroy those who profess Christ as their Savior. There are people now in many countries and other nations that face martyrdom for professing their faith. They face their tribulation now, but much of that is regional depending on where people live.

Far too many people are waiting for Jesus to return and come rescue them from the troubles on this earth. I've got news for you; WE ARE THE RESCUE CREW!

Anyone that believes that evil is more powerful than God ought to just throw away their Bible now because that is unbelief and that is useless theology. We are full of the power of the Holy Spirit. We ARE the new Jerusalem coming down out of heaven. We call those things that are not as though they were, bringing heaven down to earth. The government of God is upon the shoulders of the Lord Jesus Christ. There will be government leaders that make room for the government of God. The glory of God will cover the earth as the waters cover the seas. There will be a great revival. Evil laws will be overturned. Righteousness will overcome evil. The plots of evil men will be overturned, and those that conspire against the Lord and His anointed will be caught in their own traps. There are more with us than against us! Greater is He that is in the earth than He that is in the world. The enemy has already been defeated!! But, we must pray.

We must pray against the evil plans but we must also pray for ourselves and loved ones, that we would not allow any sort of fear, threat or intimidation to cause us to renounce Christ. God does not honor cowardice. He expects us to stand firm in our faith to the end, even though we may come face to face with evil. The enemy only wants trophies to drag to hell with him. No one would be spared from the eternal consequences of renouncing Christ. One way or another, we all leave this planet through death. It is far better to know Christ and remain faithful to Him, knowing that after we die we will be in the presence of the Lord, than to deny Him and end up in the lake of fire for eternity, along with all those marked for destruction.

"But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars--they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death." - Rev. 21:8

Never trust an enemy to tell you the truth or to keep you safe. Never trust an enemy to provide for you. Never, EVER, put your trust in an evil person because it is only a deception.

God is sending out His warnings so that we will not be caught off guard. Pray now, before you ever have to face making a difficult choice under duress. Pray that you would be found faithful. Pray for people to wake up and stop playing around with the time they have left, because none of us know the number of our days. Either the blood of Christ covers our sins and Jesus is our Lord, or He is not. If He is not, there are eternal consequences for that decision. There is no middle ground for the undecided, the self-deceived or those that refuse to believe God's word is truth. We don't get to re-write what God has said to suit our personal preferences. Upon death, our soul can only go to one of two places: heaven or hell. The Bible is clear about this! But none of us need to face eternal condemnation. It is as easy as saying, "Father, please forgive my sin. I believe Jesus took my sin upon Himself when He went to the cross, died, and rose again. I believe He is the Son of God. Jesus, come into my heart and be my Savior. Enable me to have a personal relationship with You. Thank you for eternal life. In Jesus name, amen." God is looking for the sincere prayer, but salvation is really that simple.

Pray that God would turn the hearts of men towards Himself so that people would be spared. And finally, take nothing for granted. Say what needs to be said to your loved ones while you have the opportunity to do so. Leave no regrets. Make things rights with your family while you have the time. Tell them you love them. Tell them you are proud of them. Speak words of blessing over them so that they feel empowered to fulfill their destiny and finish their race strong, whenever that time may come for them. Pray for them to be courageous. Sorry for such a serious post first thing in the morning, but I must report what God gives me. His mercy compels Him to tell us what is on the road ahead so that we can take every opportunity to prepare ourselves. I pray that you do.
