A Word from the Lord; It Will Come Suddenly – Are You Prepared? (Part 1)

This is what I began writing as I was listening to the Lord:
I can feel something is about to take place. A major, life-changing event; one that requires immediate, personal preparation. Be on the lookout. I can sense a call, but not for myself, for all Believers to arise up suddenly. They will arise up suddenly at once. Only those that have ears to hear are hearing the same. They know the same thing is coming. They will not rise up of their own accord, but they will arise up on My accord, when I do it in them. Like when the Israelites in the desert did when they heard the sound – the certain sound of the trumpet. There was no mistaking it.
I keep hearing, “Keep yourself clean, pure, and keep the watch. Do not set any wicked thing before your eyes”.
Only the ready will be ready and rise up suddenly. I can feel it, and its gaining strength. The way has been long but worth it.
“My people have reached exhausted levels. It is purification time. It is time to wash, bathe, clean your temples from within.
What will happen will happen very fast and without any warning. It will take everyone by surprise. Many faces will be shocked. The faces of millions will become pale from shock. The shock will be so great they will not be able to come out of it for a long time.
However, My people will arrive safely on shores of home, safely upon the Mount. I see many regrets passing upon the hearts of many of My people; but, where you are going, regret does not exist. I am preparing you in areas you are not able to prepare yourselves.
I am separating the sheep and the cattle; the brown, speckled and rings raked from the white and blemish free. It is only Me that can do it. I am doing it now, last minute. I will do it the last minutes before the complete and final hour because it is the last and final hour. My people will feel it in their hearts. They will know the time. It will be Me doing it within them. Those that know Me will know the difference”.
I was receiving a waking vision as the Lord spoke to me and this is what I saw:
As the Lord was speaking, I had a waking vision. I saw myself standing on a cliff overlooking a vast valley. Spread along the entire valley as far as I could see were white tents. On the outside of every tent, were people taking down their tents and rolling them up.
I then heard the Lord say to me, “It is time to begin taking down your tents and rolling them up and preparing”.
Back to the word…
“Those that do not know Me will not be aware of it the way those that know Me will. Those that do know Me will know it beyond any shadow of doubt. I need them to know it this way. Those they live with, or near to, will not be able to know it like them (the saved). Yet, they will confess that they know something is happening. All flesh will sense it.
This separating will not be visible to those that do not know Me because it will be from within each person, in the spirit. Yet, the wicked and the unsaved will see a change and not be able to explain it.
Those that have been hearing the warnings and call to prepare for a very long time will not do so. Even those that remotely sense it from within, pass it off as nothing to be concerned about.
They expect Me to do everything for them, even preparing for them where they should be doing it themselves. It is “The Bride that makes herself ready”, not the Bridegroom. They refuse to do their part.
In fact, that is how they have chosen to live their entire lives in Me. Then, finally at the end, they are far from any ability to prepare for the final moments because they never spent any time preparing at all.
Because of the suddenness, severity, and shock, they will all be fully consumed with horror in a moment’s time. A horror so real, so stark, and great, they will be paralyzed much the same way as Lot’s wife.
They will grieve. They will mourn. I am coming to take back what belongs to Me andwho belongs to Me”.
The Lord is directing this to the wicked of this world:
“I have left them (the Righteous) here for the benefit of you (the lost world). However, I will not leave them here much longer, not much longer for your benefit. For you see, whether or not you believe it, this world benefits from my loved ones being among you; though they are like sheep constantly surrounded by venomous snakes, ravenous wolves, thieves and murderers, who would gladly take away their lives in a moment if I let them.
Their time to do so will be soon. It is soon. It will not be prolonged. Even the least among My sheep, even the smallest, the weakest saints among the wicked people of this world benefit from the existence of the righteous woven among them.
The judgment of the wicked is prolonged because of the righteous that live among them. They (the Saved), take your cursing, mocking, ridicule, and blasphemy because of My mercy for you. I died as much for you as I did for them (the saved). But, they will be your judges on that Day and you will remember them – you will remembereverything. Even their prayers will be brought up before you as your accusers, and none will be able to stand.
The rotten stench of this world has risen up before Me and I cannot stand it. Not much more can be done. I am near and you will know it – you who are wicked and you who are righteous.
Many ask why and how I can watch in silence at the wicked and most perverse things in the earth and not rise up at once and devour those who violently rage against Me. It is because I wait. I wait because there are many wicked among the righteous that will come in all at once towards the very end, right before I severe the wicked from the righteous.
The light of this world will be snuffed out like the flame of a candle that has almost no wax left.
When I do this, even many of the wickedest will know I have done this. That is was Me that did it, though they cursed and blasphemed Me through the years. They knew Me all along and they will know it is Me more than those who served Me with their mouths.
It will be the horror of many of those that believed they were saved and were not – much more than the wickedest who will be saved after all. Those that will come to Me after sudden destruction will not be those who professed Me with their mouths and cursed inwardly, but those that cursed Me with their mouths outwardly only to confess Me inwardly as Savior and Lord.
This will cause those that took their so-called righteousness for granted and flaunted it before the unrighteous, to gnash their teeth at the wicked who will come to Me for their salvation.
The righteousness of the wicked will torment the so-called righteous and drive them further away than the wicked were in their worst wickedness.
The so-called righteous will curse Me more than the newfound last minute, grateful, new Believer that were Satan’s Masterpieces of hell.
Once the door is shut, for it is almost surely shut, the inhabitants of this world will furiously beat upon My door much the same way they did upon the door of the Ark. However, I will not listen to them even though they will howl and cut themselves… The silence they will be met with will torment them more than the blasting noise of hell that will never end”.
A Word from the Lord; It Will Come Suddenly – Are You Prepared?-Part-Part II

Part of My Personal Journal – September 6, 2016
I keep seeing the part in 1 Kings 17:1-7,where Elijah the Tishbite hid by the brook called Cherith. Here he dwelt as God fed him every morning by ravens. They brought him bread and meat [flesh] in both morning and evening, and he drank from the brook. Soon after, the brook dried up from having no rain. I continue to see this. The waters are drying up as the bread and meat in both morning and evening is no longer, and will no longer be coming. It is not coming back.
I keep getting this strong sense of knowing that we will be gone and forever home with the Lord.
Today, as I walked about on the deck, I looked out at the mountains in their greatness and the icy cold waters softly flowing by. I recognized what a gift from God these are – something to see last of all. I hear my thoughts… these thoughts. Yet, I am not troubled at all.
I see us as God’s people by the drying brook Elijah camped by. There is now a famine in the land; a famine of magnitude proportions. I hear this word spoken in my mind,
“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord. And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from north even to the east, they shall run to an fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.” (Amos 8:11-12, KJV)
In addition, I wonder if I am the only one, or are there others like me with these same thoughts.
There is, as I can deeply feel it, a getting ready to go. It never leaves me. I felt the presence of the Holy Spirit in this cabin the day I got here. I knew He would speak to me. However, not one-hundred percent, but the greater part of me felt so.
I dreamed last night that someone came to me and began to sing and worship the Lord. Then I saw more and more surround me, all singing. They were from heaven. In fact, it was as if all heaven descended down upon me, encapsulating me on every side. The power of heaven was so powerful. It was nothing like even the most anointed earthly worship I have ever experienced. My whole being was flowing with power of the endless life.
Though I was so grateful, I then became sad because I had no idea how really starved I was for the anointed sound. I feel that very soon we are going to experience what we have all been waiting for. Heaven is drawing nearer and is now surrounding us all.
Word from the Lord (9/6/16):
“Do not look any longer upon this world as your home. It never has been. There is now an entering in. A great door is opening in heaven, and it is not for the faint of heart or the weak, but for those whose hearts have been brave, strong, and bold – those who have satisfied their souls in Me and kept in My constant shadow.
The light of this world is shutting off as quickly as if one put their finger to a switch to shut it off. It will never be light again. Only a thick darkness of lamentations and woes.
The meek are ripe and ready. The meek are soon to be rewarded in Me. The harpers are harping. Throngs are coming in with exceeding great joy and singing with crowns upon their heads.
Those of you who have waited so long for Me will not be waiting much longer. I am the sound of the rushing, mighty wind – rushing to get My Bride. Can you hear the sound of My wings? [Angelic host]. Behold, I come”!
My Husband Jon’s Dream – September 8, 2016 (In his own words):
Last night, Jon dreamt he was standing in a big open field. He saw in the near distance an army of children. Among the army of children was an ancient looking man described as an Abraham-type figure, old and full of days.
Jon drew near to see. He said that all the children were wearing white robes and that each of them were coming to this man to receive an anointing one by one. The man would lay his hands on each child and they would fall forward upon the ground under this anointing.
Jon described the children as being, “brand new, fresh, and just so brand new”. I asked if that meant being born again, but he just kept saying, “I do not know, they were just brand new”.
Then he said that there were two children with him and he wanted to bring them to where the army of children were so they could also meet the man.
Jon then walked the two children up to the man. The man laid hands on them and they fell upon the ground under the anointing. Jon said that he himself did not stop walking when he brought the children to the man. He just kept walking as if to just go on his way.
He also mentioned that this man had regular clothing on, but was wearing white robes over his clothing.
When Jon was about to pass by him, he reached out and touched Jon. When he did, Jon fell down upon the ground just like all the children. He said that the anointing was so powerful, he just fell down on the ground.
Word from the Lord – September 8, 2016:
“The time of this empire is over, as with all the other empires of this rotten, filthy world. A great crashing will be heard from the hills.
The earth is now ripe for both harvest and judgment – the harvest of nations of peoples.
A swift judgment will fall. I am coming.
The harvest is truly great and the laborers are few. However, right now I am raising up many whom I will use to gather as many to Me as possible. Be careful. Do not look for them as Samuel did to David’s brothers. Those that will appear to be those I have chosen are not the ones you will think.
Those I have chosen and are raising up, are my mightiest workers who will not do so out in the open. That has never been their practice and that is what makes them mighty. They will be like Nehemiah who went out at night to spy out the destruction of the wall and the Temple.
My people that will be key in My harvest are not in the public eye. They do nothing at all for eye service and answer only to Me. They have many years in Me and they are very mighty. They are few in number, but have power by Me to bring down kingdoms and the hosts of mighty kingdoms. When I give the Word, not only one or two of them will know it, but they will all know it from the least unto the greatest.
The glory of the kingdoms are fallen and will no more rise up again forever. I have decreased the power of the rulers of the nations. I have taken away and removed their crowns. I am diminishing every attempt on their part to re-exert government authority.
The peoples of these nations are, and will shortly be, rising up as a destruction against their own rulers. They will turn their own nations upside down. Rulers of nations will turn and run in fear from their own people. Their hands will be stripped of power. Their power will rot.
The rulers that will not fear, turn, and run, are those who have already made an agreement with hell. However, their rule and reign will be short-lived. The very little that Satan can use them, due to the shortness of time, will infuriate him [Satan] and he will destroy them and turn their countries into a wilderness.”
Another Word from the Lord – September 15, 2016
“The rich of this world will fall. They will be in essence hit the hardest from which they will never recover. They will feel it the most. They will be hit the hardest because they have more to lose. They will lose it overnight. They will lose everything the fastest.
The rich whom are prepared are but few, and they will hide out in the holes of the rocks. They will not share any of their supplies with anyone. Their fear will eat them alive and they will attack and devour each other. They will become like wild animals because they know their wealth will never come back forever.
I am avenging My elect.
They [the rich] have lived sumptuously and richly upon the earth and have been thankful for nothing. Because they have been thankful for nothing, nothing is what I am going to give them.
The poor will have more than they will, even the poor who have never believed in Me because they have been thankful for having almost nothing. The poor will have more than those who stockpiled wealth, and those who stockpiled their wealth will only see it evaporate in a stroke. Therefore, nothing will become the possession of the rich.
Just as the Hebrew slaves, when they ate quail until it was coming out of their nostrils, in the same way have the rich of this world done so. They are nothing more than fatted calves marked for slaughter, for they fattened their own selves in the presence of the poor. They licked up what was left and withheld it from those that begged for help.
You rich who have lived in excess, My excess, you appointed your own selves to the slaughter. You have heard the cries of the hungry every day, and turned away. You saw the desperation of the starving, the widow, and the fatherless, and turned away. You have no compassion. Everything you have is Mine. Everything you own Iallowed you to possess.
Your wealth has corrupted you and sealed you into a never-ending, perpetual destruction. A destruction I never planned for you, but purchased for yourselves. You fear nothing. Therefore, a fear, My fear,will become your fear. AND YOU WILL FEAR ME.
I am going to turn your nation upside down and shake it, even toss it like a ball. When I do this, it will be like giving a blind man sight where as he has lived his entire life in pitch-black darkness; and that darkness being all he has known was his light. Yes, you who have blasphemed Me every day and every night, you will be like the blind receiving sight. Except you will not be like the naturally blind who would see and be filled with joy. Instead, you will see it and there is no way out of it. You will feel it most. I will make you see it in its fullness and you will not rejoice. You will grieve and mourn.
What I will do will weaken the strong of this world. Those that know Me that are the weak, will become strong like mighty men; like a great and terrible army. You live among them every day. My strong ones that will arise, they will arise out of their close places, and you will not know it until the very moment I raise them up all at once.
You will be in shock to see who are My mighty ones. Many of them live next door to you. Many of them live in your homes and those you work with. Many will be those you laughed at, mocked, and made fun of. Nevertheless, they kept praying for you and remained faithful, though you maligned them and cast them out of your presence. Their faithfulness to Me on your behalf kept you alive. I kept you alive because of their cries for mercy for you.
These mighty ones will be like lions who will rise up prematurely out of a sound sleep. Their faces will be bold like lions. There will be no mistaking it.
Be prepared. Stand firm. Anoint the shield. Furbish your weapons.
These days are fast approaching and will be upon all humanity, upon all people, all over the earth… all at once.
The earth is going to rock. It is going to rock and shake so hard it will be knocked off its axis. The weather will become stranger and the skies will become darkened. The sun will not give her light as it once did. Everything will become completely unpredictable. The seasons you have enjoyed, summer, spring, winter, and fall, will become impossible to differentiate.
There will be no more seasons.
There will be an increase of heavy rains so great that areas will be swept away. Violentlightening will increase with great noise from the heavens that has never been seen or witnessed. Buildings with the tallest stories [the pride of man] will come down like walls with untempered mortar. They will come down like when a little child barely touches his tower made with toy blocks and it falls at once.
There will be great and intensified shaking coming upon all the lands.
Get ready to see mountains fall… My mountains fall. Those that will witness it will be in pain – in the shock of pain. They will be paralyzed with such intense fear that they will not be able to run for their lives, though everything within them is screaming for them to run. But, they will not be able to”!
This is what I saw in a waking vision as the Lord spoke to me.
I saw the country of Malaysia. He also showed me the surrounding countries of Malaysia. These countries, as well as Malaysia, are going to rock and shake very hard. I see violent, cataclysmic destructionappointed for that land.
He showed me the faces of the people beholding the total destruction of their lands. Their faces were pale. I saw mountains around the areas I mentionedslamming down to the ground. Not only these nations. The Lord showed me that this will happen all over the earth. I see mountains crumbling like crumbs in the sight of all the people.
The word of the Lord Continued…
“The great and violent shaking will be so great, it will overwhelm the people. They will all be unable to do anything. Psychologically, millions will be affected by this great shaking of the earth. Madness will be widespread and all safety will be gone.
When this will happen, everyone that is leftwill reminisce and remember all the good they once had – whether they had much or very little. They will remember the freedoms and everything that I handed down to them from Me. This will be the cause and means by which many will turn to me. They will do it en masse all over the world. They will run to Me!
This is what I meant when I said that the harvest is truly great and the laborers are few… You will see what I mean shortly. It will not be as it has been over these last centuries of My workers looking for ways to catch men like fish. No, in fact, My workers will not have to do anything to bring them in… For they will run in enormous people group’s right into My nets all on their own.
My workers will be overwhelmed with this great catch. Nevertheless, I am and will be among you, working with you and giving you the power to accomplish this task. Once this starts, I will finish it.
I AM the LORD”!
Message from the Editor (Brook Ardoin):
