A darkness is approaching

During Bible study and meditation, the Lord gave a disturbing scene. I saw many Christians in a straight line, all facing left from my perspective. As I watched them, a darkness began to overtake them and many shrank backwards. Some stood their ground and did not move as much as others, but some I could no longer see. All seemed to be affected by this darkness to one degree or another.


A darkness is approaching, not only the church but the world, for this darkness was as a wave of blackness that suppressed anything in its way. The Christians that stood their ground were not afraid of the dark and had strength to stand. Others simply faded away.

I am reminded of the Scriptures:

John 9:4I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.

Psalm 30:5 For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.

1 Thessalonians 5:2For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.

2 Peter 3:10a[ The Day of the Lord ] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat;

Amos 5:18-19
18 Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord!
For what good is the day of the Lord to you?
It will be darkness, and not light.
19 It will be as though a man fled from a lion,
And a bear met him!
Or as though he went into the house,
Leaned his hand on the wall,
And a serpent bit him!

Joel 2:1-3
The Day of the Lord
2 Blow the [a]trumpet in Zion,
And sound an alarm in My holy mountain!
Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble;
For the day of the Lord is coming,
For it is at hand:
2 A day of darkness and gloominess,
A day of clouds and thick darkness,
Like the morning clouds spread over the mountains.
A people come, great and strong,
The like of whom has never been;
Nor will there ever be any such after them,
Even for many successive generations.

Ex 10:21Then the LORD said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, darkness which may even be felt.”


I believe this to be a spiritual darkness, sent by the forces of the enemy.

    The “darkness” will simply be the public rejection of Christianity. Most of us will have to repudiate our faith, at least publicly, in order to keep functioning in any social way. And we’ll see who really is willling to give up their social life to do this. Not so hard for loners or homesteaders, but If you have any kind of family or job to support, it will be much harder. Resistance will make one a target, no job, no bank account, no credit. You must have a means to survive or be supported by others, if you want to make a public stand. Otherwise, you will have to go “underground”. I don’t think God will condemn anyone for this, but he’s saying that it will be much harder to work openly or stand for the faith in a Christian realm once this social change happens. There will be a big division that occurs. But we have examples, such as Eastern Europeans under communism, for example, how they survived for decades under a godless regime. There is always a secret resistance movement. But also a widespread informant ring of neighbors turning in neighbors, in exchange for protection. . Who can you trust? Hharassment and repression by the government will be fierce. So a lot of people end up succumbing to the ideology.

    I see it on T.V. all the time, “We cannot be shut down!! We have the Constitutional right!!!!” It makes me sad every time I see a Pastor on Cable T.V. news saying this. The Constitution was not given by God and there are countless Christians who lived over the past 1700+ years without a “Constitutional Right” Darkness is coming indeed and we will have to rely on God not the Constitution.
