I was lying down trying to take a nap. My heart started pounding really hard for many minutes, and it kept pounding harder and harder. Finally, I asked in my spirit, “Why is my heart pounding so hard?” And I heard, “This is how the hearts of everyone will pound.” “When, Lord?” “When I bring the great event that I am about to tell you.” “Lord, is this something not yet revealed or something that you have already shown your prophets in these days?” “It is what I have already revealed. It is the kickoff event to all the judgments I am about to bring on America.” “Lord, I don’t really want to know…but your will be done. Do you want to tell me or show me?” “What do you see?” “I see nothing” (my mind was full of blackness but I sensed I was looking down on the USA, even though no feature was visible, for it was pitch black). “Now what do you see?” “I see lights” (suddenly, little lights started popping up here and there across the whole country). “These lights are my people who are preparing themselves to carry out my call.” Then, suddenly, I felt an awful rumbling in my spirit, and I saw a great big crack in the earth on the West coast–all the way north to south–and the East coast–all the way north to south; it looked like a great big tear in a piece of fabric on two ends of the country. And I no sooner saw this than I saw great fireballs coming down out of the sky and hitting all over the U.S. I started weeping. I started begging God to have mercy on the people. Then the Lord told me to write it down and tell His people.
Throughout this vision, I kept thinking of the following passage (in bold):
Mark 13:14-27: “‘But when you see the abomination of desolation standing where he ought not to be (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let the one who is on the housetop not go down, nor enter his house, to take anything out, and let the one who is in the field not turn back to take his cloak. And alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days! Pray that it may not happen in winter. For in those days there will be such tribulation as has not been from the beginning of the creation that God created until now, and never will be. And if the Lord had not cut short the days, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, whom he chose, he shortened the days. And then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘Look, there he is!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform signs and wonders, to lead astray, if possible, the elect. But be on guard; I have told you all things beforehand. But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And then he will send out the angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven.”
Now after reading this passage in its entirety, I felt confused about the words the Spirit gave me, saying that the darkness and the earthquake and the falling stars were to be kickoff events to the judgments, since this passage seemed to indicate that they would conclude the time of great tribulation. So I asked the Lord about it, and He said, “These events are to kickoff the judgments of wrath that are coming upon the earth to utterly destroy mankind from the earth. Before this, there will indeed be great tribulation but for the purpose of drawing souls to myself in the greatest harvest of souls ever to occur on the earth. The judgments prior to wrath will be for the purpose of purging my church and purifying my bride.” (The Lord reminded me that this harvest has already begun: look at the Middle East and the mass harvest among the Muslims.)
Then I remembered Revelation 6:12-17: “When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slaveand free, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, calling to the mountains and rocks, ‘Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, for the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?'”
This indeed confirms that the events of my vision do kick off the Day of the Lord in which His wrath begins. I asked the Lord, “Have the events of great tribulation and purging already begun, or should we be still waiting on these?”
“My daughter, the seals of my judgment on my people have been opening and will continue to open, but very soon, the sixth seal will commence!”
The seals prior to the sixth seal:
- White horse “conquering, and to conquer”
- Bright red horse permitted to take peace from the earth
- Black horse: famine
- Pale horse: a fourth of the earth: death by sword, famine, pestilence, beasts of the earth (does this refer to the demonic beasts known as the Nephilim, as this is the thought that came into my mind)
- Martyrs for the witness of the Word of God
I asked the Lord which seal we are at, and I heard in my spirit that we are about to commence the fourth seal. (Do any other prophets affirm this?) I also note that when looking at a world map, it appears that the USA falls into about one quarter of the earth’s mass. Please pray over these things, whether the Spirit confirms to you if these things are true.
I continued inquiring of the Lord as to the meaning of the lights I saw in my vision. If the elect were about to be caught up to meet the Lord, then why did He say in the vision that they were “preparing themselves to carry out my call”? The Lord reminded me of the 144,000 described in the book of Revelation that were sealed and still on the earth during the judgments of wrath. These are the bride of Christ who will be working with the Lord to do what Christ did while on the earth during his first advent–only this time He will be carrying out those works of mercy with His bride at His side and in a much more wide-scale measure. This explains the parallel scenes in Revelation 7, immediately after the opening of the sixth seal and before the first trumpet, as there are two groups that compose the body of Christ: the Bride (144,000) and the rest of the elect. “‘Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.’ And I heard the number of the sealed, 144,000, sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel” (Revelation 7:3-4). “After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!’And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying, ‘Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen.’ Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, ‘Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?’ I said to him, ‘Sir, you know.’ And he said to me, ‘These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb'” (Revelation 7:9-14). The following scene with the 144,000 on Mount Zion does not occur until after the second woe. “Then I looked, and behold, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven like the roar of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder. The voice I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps,and they were singing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are virgins. It is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These have been redeemed from mankind as firstfruits for God and the Lamb, and in their mouth no lie was found, for they are blameless” (Revelation 14:1-5).
I was feeling impressed to look up the stages of harvest in the Old Testament, and this is what I found: there is a harvest of firstfruits, a main harvest, and the gleanings. Thus, I understand that there are three waves of harvest in the Great Tribulation (the 144,000; the main harvest–the great multitude; and the gleanings–those who come to faith in Christ Jesus during the Great Tribulation due to the testimony of the 144,000).
Exodus 23:16: “And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.”
Ruth 2:8: “Then Boaz said to Ruth, ‘Now, listen, my daughter, do not go to glean in another field or leave this one, but keep close to my young women.'” It’s interesting how Ruth–a type of the Bride of Christ–gleans in the field of Christ (Boaz).
As always, I implore you to take these words before the Lord in prayer to affirm that they are true and to discern His plan for you in these last days.
Acts 17:11: “Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.”
