Famine, Pandemics, Vision



Feb 26, 2020

Received 02/16/2020

Today while in prayer, the Lord gave me a vision of an event happening in my city in the days ahead. In this vision, the Lord allowed me to experience this event as it was taking place. I found myself right in the middle of the event as an observer to carefully watch and take notice of all that was going on around me.

It started out with me driving my current vehicle that I drive every day to and from work. I don’t know if it was a day after getting home from work or if it was a weekend. It was a sunny and seemingly normal day, and I was not alerted to anything happening at that time. I was driving towards the downtown area to the local plaza where there is a Walmart, a grocery store, and several other stores.

The location is a short distance from my house, approximately two to three miles away. As I drove along, I heard the radio in the car tuned into a local talk radio station. Suddenly, my attention was on what was being said on the radio. The talk show host became very serious in his tone and stated that it was being reported that several large cities were in lock-down because the COVID-19 (coronavirus) was now rampant and mutating. He then said that all people were being ordered to stay inside their homes or apartments. I was somewhat surprised to hear that being said as I was not aware that things had gotten to that point.

By this time, I was arriving at my destination. As the plaza area was coming into view, I saw what looked like a riot taking place. The streets leading up to the plaza and the entire parking lot were jammed packed with vehicles parked all over the place with car doors left wide open. This is a smaller city with approximately 16,000 residents, and it appeared that all 16,000 of them were in this plaza. The main places of activity were the grocery store and Wal-Mart. I drove into the parking lot, dodging people all over as they were wildly running about. All parking lot spaces and aisles were blocked by vehicles, but I managed to pull into the spot where the return carts go.

I got out of my car and stood in amazement as I watched people running as fast as they could in almost every direction, screaming and shouting hysterically! I was observing complete and utter chaos and hysteria! Not one person was calm. All were running about, yelling, screaming, and crying.

A little way ahead of me, I noticed a person that I recognized and asked him what was going on. He stated that he had heard from the local National Guard that they were planning a Martial Law order and that everyone would have to stay in their homes. He told me that nearly all of the store shelves were empty of food, water, and other goods. He said that the people in the stores were acting like crazed, rabid animals, throwing cans of food at each other and stealing each other’s carts.

I decided to enter the grocery store to see this for myself. I went in and it was worse than I had anticipated – complete chaos and wild fighting! People at the check-out lines were yelling and screaming at the cashiers because their debit and credit cards were not working in the machines, and they had no cash. People began to bypass the registers and just run out of the stores without paying for the food in their carts. I saw people at the front of the store and just outside the store attacking people who were running out with food. Waiting mobs of people grabbed and beat the people who were leaving the store with food, taking all their food and leaving the people injured and lying on the ground.

I observed that the shelves were all emptied out in a matter of minutes. As I watched, it reminded me of a pack of ravenous wolves or frenzied sharks fighting over food. It was unbelievable to watch this take place. I ventured further into the store and saw how everything in the store was totally destroyed. The doors were pulled off the refrigerated and freezer sections and broken and thrown all over the floor. Shelving units were pushed over, knocked down, and broken up. There was no food left at all anywhere on any shelves – everything was totally gone, completely wiped out!

Then my attention was drawn to the doors in the back of the store that led to the stock room. People had begun running back there in search of more food as the store was now cleared out. They began tearing all of the boxes and pallets apart, looking for food. Many of the boxes contained paper products and cleaning supplies, but all that was thrown aside since the people were in a mad frenzy looking for any boxes containing food items. I saw them find and take pet food because it was food. They acted like they hit the jackpot when they found dog food.

I left the back room and was again in the store area. As I looked around, I then saw some people that I knew from some of the local churches in the area. These people were all standing there with a terrified look on their faces. Most of them were crying because they were too late and there was nothing left.

I approached them and asked, “Why did you not prepare for this? After all, many watchmen have been warning for years of what was to come.”

One of them replied to me, “I thought we would be gone before anything bad happened! I should have listened!”

As we were standing there still looking around at people fighting over what little remained, suddenly we began to hear gunshots fired as many people had come there armed. Bullets began flying everywhere, and many people were being hit. No one came to their aid or tried to help them, but they were just left on the floor bleeding, injured, and/or dying. Other people were now grabbing and taking the food items from the people who had been shot, and they were running out of the store with the food. The cashier clerks had all run away for fear of their lives. People were taking anything that was not tied down that they could carry out.

I then went back outside and looked all around the plaza to the other stores. I observed that people had now run into every other store looking for food. Walmart had become a war zone with gun battles going on in the store and the parking lot. Many people were lying dead or dying. I saw people run into TJ Maxx and the Dollar Store to their small food sections. People even ran into the movie theater and were fighting over the popcorn and candy.

It seemed as if in one hour, everything had gone from normal to complete and utter chaos and insanity! I was then reminded by the Lord that He had told me many times over the past several years that this would be the case – that life as we knew it would change suddenly and that most were not prepared.

As I stood outside the store, I then saw the National Guard vehicles begin arriving in the area. They quickly swooped in and shot anyone who was seen holding a weapon. The clamp-down had begun, and no one would be allowed on the street. Everyone must stay inside or be shot.

As the vision ended, I heard the Lord say, “WHY HAVE YOU NOT PREPARED??!!!”

    I can tell you one thing….the Bible does not say “prepare”….but….it does say this “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”. As for me…I’m going to continue to follow the word of God and keep praying Luke 21:36…I trust in the Lord. Amen. It is accomplished.

  2. CJ

    I have to be very careful what I share on social media because of my line of work. People think you are a nut job and they won’t do business with you. That’s fine if it were just me and my family (well, not really) but we work as a team and many families depend on the work I do.
    That said, I shared this vision on FB today. Time is too short. The time for subtlety is passed. This is just one alarm that needs to be sounded.

  3. Tony Jah

    Yes Amen Peter. There is no way to prepare properly since we have no clue what will happen and for how long. We don’t even know if we are bound to move or not. So yes, just keep praying at trust in the Lord, that’s what the Bible tells us. Not to rack up foods and goods because we drown under fear.

  4. Joan Saddler

    Yes I agree the bible teaches clearly that we should not fear. Please memorize psalm 91. However, we must not be lazy and dismissive. If during the time of plenty in Egypt they stuff themselves and declare God will take care of us, I think they would have all died. He gives us warnings for a reason. First preparation is spiritual then physical. Don’t expect God to do for you what you can do for yourself. Amen

  6. Rob Pascale

    As I recall, there was a man named Joseph that prepared for 7 years for 7 years of lean times. I believe in the pre-trib rapture, but no man knows when that will happen.
    Basic common sense tells me to PREPARE !!!
    We all know whats coming, actually already here.
    Never the less, “THE BRIDEGROOM IN COMING” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! REPENT

  7. Mike

    The WISE man sees trouble coming and prepares himself. The FOOL continues on an suffers for it. Prov 22:3

  8. Catherine

    Dear brothers and sisters, to all who have so many excuses not to prepare. What did God say to Noah? put food in the Arc for you, your family and the animals…The world was destroyed but Noah was here on earth, not in the rapture! Lot was here, not in the rapture. Joseph was sold to Egypt, so that the people of God could survive in Egypt with the food Joseph put aside.
    What musst happen to wake up?

  9. Exactly Mike

  10. Debbie

    In 2014, I asked God to show me what we should do as a family regarding preps. I did not even get my knees off the floor before He told me to read again the parable of the ten virgins. Of course, spiritual preparation should always be first and foremost in our lives, but undoubtedly, the Lord is into foresight and prepping physically for prophetic events to come. Five of the virgins did not prepare and then they wanted the other five who did prepare to share. Alas, their request for help was denied. The Lord certainly told Joseph to prepare for a lengthy famine and He told Noah to build an ark in preparation for a flood. If they had not listened, the consequences would have been costly. In Proverbs 6, it says about how ants prepare food in summer and gather the food in harvest. Interestingly, it says that the ants do so without having any chief, officer or ruler. If we do not prepare, what will we offer to those in desperate need? Will they even want to listen to us about Jesus and salvation if they’re physically hungry and thirsty? We must remember that Jesus fed the 5000 before he ministered to them spiritually…there is much wisdom in that. Only God knows how the preps anyone gathers will be used. Perhaps our preps will go to complete strangers, but regardless, all the prepping will be worth it if it leads to even one person accepting Jesus as their personal Savior.

  11. Daniel Noah

    Catherine, You have an irrational bent against the Biblical doctrine of the rapture, what’s worse, you promote it out of an ignorant/arrogance of your nonsensical interpretation of scripture… Pontificating, does not prove a point. You sound like that crackpot O’bama, who bastardized science to bend it to his point of view, then after babbling some 1/2 truth of ignorance, say’s it’s ‘settled science’…global warming/climate change being caused by CO2. Farmers pressurize CO2 into their greenhouses to help plants grow. The elite Luciferians want to deindustrialize the planet and wipe out 6 billion people…leave 1% in charge, with everyone else as peasants, like feudal times. Now to the facts: 2 Thessalonians 2:2-3 “Let no one deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy{departure} comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction.” The first 7 English translations of the bible into English, ALL RENDERED THE NOUN apostasia, AS THE DEPARTURE ! Wycliffe-1384/ Tyndale-1526/ Coverdale-1535/ Cranmer-1539/ Breeches-1576. Jerome’s Latin Vulgate of 400 A.D., renders apostasia as discessio, meaning -DEPARTURE! The KJV was the 1rst to change the correct meaning. The Catholic translators within the KJV rendering, inserted ‘falling away’, implying an apostasy from the Catholic church, by the Protestant Reformation. To back up this claim of ‘The Departure’, one can move on to 2 Thessalonians 2:6-8, where Paul repeats the same two events mentioned in 2:3, thus supporting the rapture view for verse 3. Both events are stated twice in the passage: first, ‘THE DEPARTURE’ (RAPTURE) and “the revelation of the man of sin” (v-3), and second, the restrainer(Holy Spirit) “is taken out of the way”(RAPTURE) and “that lawless one will be revealed”.(v 7-8) If “The departure” is some form of apostasy, then the parallelism is broken. The 2 events are repeated twice, for the purpose of expounding in verses 7-8 upon the introductory statement in verse 3. Before the Antichrist is revealed, the RESTRAINER MUST BE REMOVED! The ‘Departure’ in @ Thess. 2:3 is synonymous with the removal of the RESTRAINER(HOLY SPIRIT) in 2 Thess.2:7. Just because you see Christians in the Tribulation, does not mean all go through the Tribulation. If the grass is wet, it does not necessarily mean that it rained…many have dug in their heels here, with twisted logic, about how it isn’t fair that some won’t suffer equally. The problem is, that 90% of the avowed adult(10-100) Christians , will be left behind for Revelation’s last resort. ” And they(Christians left behind) did not have on a wedding clothes-(both sets)with oil. Isaiah 61:10 ” I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with garments of salvation, He hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.” Revelation 12:11 ” And they overcame him (Antichrist/Satan) by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” No one is riding out the Tribulation, but a few(Jews-Rev12, the woman is the Jews in Israel) in Petra, Jordan, who flee there at the midpoint of the Tribulation. Revelation 13:7 ” And it was given unto him (Antichrist) to make war with the saints and TO OVERCOME THEM (KILL THEM). Rev. 3:10 It’s not ‘from’, but ek -Grk- ‘out of’. 99% are not kept from anything, Antichrist, wipes out the Christians who had backslidden and missed the rapture, or the y are new converts to Christ who are killed by Antichrist. The rapture will happen on some future day of preparation, which is day before Passover…will it be 2020? Don’t risk not being in the group of Isaiah 61:10, who I might add, had the oil to the brim. The wedding at Cana, is the Marriage supper of the Lamb. Daniel IHS

  12. Marc

    Pre-trib believers won’t be able to help others…
    Their just believing in a quick exit out of trouble….
    Christian people in wohan, CHINA are not going anywhere else quickly, their praying for others, and preaching repentance.
    No pre-trib happening.

  13. Eyes Open

    To Daniel Noah
    Why are you so unkind to our sister Catherine with your words? This is not Christlike to our elder sister in Christ. Respect her for being your sister please. It is very difficult to read such harshness towards others in the body without it hurting. We are one body. Love one another. By this shall all men know you are Christ’s disciple in truth.

  14. CKd

    “Daniel Noah”, you need to stop with your false doctrine. Period. You are so far off in so many places it’s not even worth a rebuttal. I am typing this message so that anyone on the internet who happens to view your permanently recorded post knows NOT to entertain or even consider your nonsensical ramblings. Stop teaching until you have become a humble student first. Even Paul after his conversion was taught of Holy Spirit for three years. The disciples were trained by Jesus Himself for a similar amount of time. You need to study the Word of the Lord for years upon years with Holly Spirit as your guide before trying to teach it. Stop listening to the false teachings of whoever you are regurgitating. In the distant future, If and when God Himself instructs you to teach then do it. Until then, just stop, because you will answer for every false teaching you type or say. Do you really want to even have the remote possibility of deceiving someone into thinking something false about the Word of God?

  15. Mathew

    Ask the Lord to do what you should do to prepare, then do what He leads you to do. As much (or as little) as He leads you to do.

  16. Completely agree Catherine. To prepare is biblical as the examples of Noah and Joseph attest to. Certainly God can also supernaturally provide as he did to the children of Israel in the exodus making water come out of a rock and supplying manna from heaven. However it is no excuse to ignore these many warnings the Lord has given about what is to come, famines being one of them.

    I too was once deceived by the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine before my eyes were opened. When you read what the bible says (such as Mathew 24, verses 29-31) it’s quite clear the rapture is immediately after the tribulation. It amazes me how the church in America thinks they are special and will not suffer any persecution but will be taken out of here before that happens. Are we any more precious in the eyes of the Lord than our brothers and sisters in the middle east or Africa who are in persecution constantly, many having been killed for their faith? I think not.

    As to this vision to Byron I happened to be at my local Costco tonight and I was amazed at how little water was available. Normally you literally have walls of water stacked high but tonight there were but a few packages of water left. Many canned foods were also low in number. There was no panic shopping but obviously people are concerned about this virus and when things really get bad what Byron saw will no doubt happen.

  17. The Other Frank

    Nothing gets Christians all riled up like arguing about when or if the rapture is supposed to happen.

  18. Jesse Terrell

    Amen, once again to Catherine. A clear and open minded reading of Matt. 24 reveals this. Jesus lists all the things that will happen: earthquakes, wars, famine, pestilence (coronavirus). Then notice Jesus said believers will be hated, persecuted, AND KILLED. Notice he didn’t add—“But don’t worry American believers—because your country is so prosperous and so special—I have arranged a special evacuation for you folks. You will go from your fancy cars and homes Straight to heaven!!” Never mind the tens of millions of believers in Russia and China who died for their faith. And as Corrie Ten Boom pointed out in her book–many believers in China turned away from the faith after their brothers and sisters in Christ were killed. They had been told by AMERICAN MISSIONARIES that they would not suffer–but WOULD BE RAPTURED AWAY. And because they had been lied to, many fell away from the faith. And it’s the same today. Those who have been told they won’t suffer, will GLADLY take the chip when arrested for their faith, and will RENOUNCE JESUS because they also have been told the same lies. Jesus promised persecution, tribulation and death. Americans in particular do not want to hear that.

  19. daniel Noah

    CKd -Daniel- Marc : I used to attend Times Square Church… often, I would see David Wilkerson… frequently, prior to the service, I’d go to the back (prayer) room behind the stage. ( I would regularly drive into Manhattan, N.Y. with one of the elders of the church.) David Wilkerson stated that the USA is Revelation 18-Babylon while, Revelation 17 is Rome. A confirmation not stated publically, was that…(an angel with Jesus, confirmed to him ) the USA will be totally wiped out, obliterated, as Sodom and Gomorra were… Archaeologists, who have researched the site(S&G), found sulfur balls, which contained 92% sulfur. A dozen other volcanic sites also had sulfur balls, but, however, the highest concentrations at those sites was only 40%… God rained down His sulfur, specifically for Sodom & Gomorra. Pastor Wilkerson stated that; Jesus said, ” the USA is worse than S&G.” Further, that, excepting for a handful of ‘New Christians’ who got saved after the rapture, the remainder, were unwise virgins who missed the wedding,… The majority(99%) of the USA’s backslidden(now recommitted after the rapture) and the ‘New’ Christians who missed the rapture, would die, as the USA would be TOTALLY WIPED OUT BY HER ENEMIES !. So, if you(those in the USA) think you are going to somehow ride this out, that’s not happening. Of the 330 million people in the USA, only a HANDFULL will survive, and, that ‘HANDFULL’ is actually more literal than figurative. Your stored goods will only last a couple of days. You see, if you are left behind and miss the rapture, you will succomb to Armed mobs of NON-CHRISTIANS. These unprepared gangs/mobs in units of hundreds, will canvass every square inch of the USA, looking for food, water, and unfortunately, women. And yes, they will have infra- red optics equipment to ferret out your heat signature- as well as bloodhounds- every house, shed, nook and cranny will be uncovered, the dogs will to find you…Where ever you think you are- or will be- safe, is an illusion. It will actually be worse than ‘Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome’. So, basically, you are saying that Jesus’ rapture of His Bride is B.S. Therefore, leave the USA right now! maybe ride ‘it’ out in Israel. In the USA, there will not be safe places for millions and millions to hide…like for the Jews(Rev.12-“the women”),who flee to Petra, Jordan, for the last 3.5 yrs of the 7 yr. Tribulation. Your provisions will last a few days, until the roving mobs of heavily armed people organize. Perhaps, a day or two lull will be it. People will need to immediately repent before certain death overtakes… those left in the post-rapture USA. Those who did not prepare spiritually or physically, will be overwhelmed by extreme pangs of hunger and thirst, and they will find you out. The places of refuge, that people talk about, are only for those who survive the initial chaos, and therefore, can rededicate their lives to Jesus prior to being killed or imprisoned. People will only miss the rapture, if they did not have on their full set of wedding clothes -Isaiah 61:10. Daniel IHS

  20. Daniel Noah

    Jesse Terrell: The love of money is the root/seed of evil. I never got a job from a poor person. So, there is no rapture, because it would be unfair to those who have previously been martyred? Jesus said, “In the world you shall have tribulation”. John 16:33 So Jesse, Jesus is some how unfair, unless everyone suffers equally? “…some workers who were hired about 5 in the afternoon came and each received a denarius. So when those came who hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius. When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner. These who were hired last worked only one hour, ‘they said, and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.’ But he answered them, ‘I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? take your pay and go…. Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money?…..So the last will be first, and the first will be last.: Matthew 20:1-16 So, do we have to have your sliding scale, that somehow God is being unfair, as to the degree each must suffer? A misapplication of a truth, does not invalidate same. As to Matthew 24, I’ll pick that up tomorrow. Because I won’t bend to your interpretation of scripture…No one seems to want to address the proof of ‘ The Departure’ in the historicity of the earliest English renditions of the Bible. Daniel IHS

  21. Rich

    Daniel Noah your interpretation of scripture seems to me to be right on. I have been a Christian for 40 years. I excepted our Savior into my heart in 1980. I have been a devout follower of Him and the prophesies throughout my Christian life. What you have posted is exactly in line with what many of the main stream of great prophecy teachers have been preaching. Your last post is right on target. I believe that all my brothers and sisters reading this thread would do well to read again what you have written with and open heart and mind. I say this because it is Scriptural. You have quoted scripture to back your claims. That seems to be something I do not see on this thread. I just see a lot of emotionalism.

    P.S. JESSY TERREL……………. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Revelation 3:10

    His Church will be kept “OUT OF”

    One other point I would like to make is that it is being reported on the news that there is a possible cure for this virus being created in Israel and right here in Massachusetts. Now we must be true to ourselves. If this virus comes and goes and the above vision does not take place then there is no way around the fact that it was not of God.

  22. Silas

    The scripture says clearly that christians have to suffer, to suffer with Jesus. All christians must be crucified with Christ if they want to enter the kingdom of God. As soon as a person becomes a christian and starts to follow Jesus, answers his call, then the refining which means suffering begins. You must surrender your life totally to Jesus if you want to make it. No lukewarmness, no willing sin, every day repentance of your sins you commit by mistake. While living that holy lifestyle, your life will change. Your friends, family, colleges, ect. will turn away from you, hate you and persecute you. Everybody will hate, reject, despise, persecute, oppress or even kill you. You will be tortured and tormented. Tha chance that you don’t know any christian is very high, so you will face that all alone. It’s very difficult to live a godly life in a satannic world. You will be pressed and crushed on all sides. That’s when the oil flows, (to get your extra oil). God will refine you in the furnace of affliction until you spotless and without wrinkle. That means, he takes every idol from you, (your hobbies, your friends, your material things, actually all fleshly desires) all that will be left is the desire to leave this satanic place to be with Jesus. That’s what it means that the bride has made herself ready. Jesus IS coming for his ready bride.

    Some people missunderstand that and think they live a kinda normal life until the 7 year great tribulation at the end of time and then all the suffering would hit them. But the scriptures say that Jesus comes for his bride and only 5 of them ( the wise ones) who actually waited for him were ready. The other foolish ones thought they are going to marry too, but they were not prepared. These foolish ones are NOT unbelievers, they are christians who are waiting for their groom. It also says in Daniel that in the end many will be tested and purified and wash their garments white, these are the wise ones. The wicked continued to be wicked and didn’t check it, the wise one understood. That’s what happening today. The purification happens in the furnace of affliction. Many prophets have warned for a long long time now that there is NO MORE TIME. People missunderstood that and thought that Jesus comes any moment. But there is NO MORE TIME, because purification takes time, a long time, years of suffering. Jesus IS coming and everybody who is not completely refined and purified will be left behind. In the great tribulation end time period people have the chance to get refined then, if they finally start to follow Jesus wherever he goes. Then they will be wedding-feast guests, but will NEVER get the chance to marry Jesus and become one with him. I’m not even sure if the foolish virgins will ever get a chance to enter heaven, because Jesus said to them, go away, you worker of iniquity. The great tribulation is the last chance to get saved and it’s God’s great mercy. Everybody who wasn’t ready to suffer with Jesus will be forced this time. God will make them suffer just like the christians are suffering today, then they are forced to make a decision eather FOR or AGAINST Christ, there will be no room for lukewarmness.
    Be blessed

  23. Elias

    Everybody must ask God himself if he should store up anything or not. About 2,5 years ago christians made me crazy with their callings to store up and the coming desasters and so on. I believed it and bought all kinds of things even though I’m poor, have no income because of great persecution and a very very small home. I packed my home up until I couldn’t breath anymore in all that stuff. And I reallized I could not store many things that I could be provided. Then I asked the Lord Jesus if it was his will and what I should do. He told me NOT to sstore anything! And I repented so badly. The persecution went on and became heavier and heavier and I lost my home and I must clean it out now. Now I have a big big problem that’s overwhelming me. I can’t go on living. I’m so sick, homeless, My family tries to kill me, the government persecutes me to the core and I’m not able to do anything. I can’t clean out my home, the enemy stole all my money I had saved. The owner of my house will now instruct a company which throws all my belongings in the garbage and I must pay tons of money for that. I can’t pay, this is my end. I’m so desperate. I’m extreme sick at the same time and I’m fighting against suicide every day, because of the great pain from torture and the daily torments and sufferings from my persecuters. It’s so unbearable. I’m so desperate. The extrem sufferings and persecutions are going on for years and years. But now, this is my end. My body is trembling without an end for more than one year now. I’m so exausted, worn, at the end of myself. All the stored up things go in the garbage now and I must pay for that and I go to jail, they torture me to death all the time, but God doesn’t allow me to die. I lost everything I’ve ever owned. There is absolutely NO hope for me, but the rapture. I’m soooo longing for redemption. God told me he has already come down to rescue us, just like he came down for his people Israel (at mount Sinai when God spoke through the burning bush). I must clean my home until the end of march. I’m lost in desperation. I’m so hoping, Jesus will come in march. I just can’t endure all that pain any more. The daily persecutions and sufferings are so so severe, I can’t bear it any longer. Every day is so undescribable terrible, it’s hell on earth. I’m only waiting and looking for Jesus to rescue me, he is my only hope.

  24. Dana

    I believe in stocking up as we have the funds and space to do so. I feel like God expects us to do what we are able to do for our needs.

    I know some folks don’t have funds or space to store up much, but they can do what they can. I don’t believe in hoarding groceries and household goods.

    This may sound foolish, but I truly believe God has stretched my bottle of liquid bath soap.

    I believe God will provide our needs.

  25. Asher

    Thank you brother Byron for sharing this message.
    The Lord spoke to me on a number of occasions a few years ago telling me to prepare. When I asked what to prepare, I was told grain and how much. I told my family who are also believers, but they did not believe. In 2019 I was told to prepare again, this time for my family.
    In April 2019 the Lord said “All as you know it shall change in a moment. War is here. You cannot see it, but I tell you now, war is here. War and famine shall come quickly. Many shall not survive for they are not prepared. Your family shall survive this terrible time for I have prepared for them”.

  26. Billie Bedford

    Elias, I am praying for you and hear the pain of your experience. Abba Father knows better than I your circumstances and your needs. I am praying for you to find His peace in the storm you are weathering and for you to sense His presence. None of us knows what tomorrow will bring
    but may His word and your prayers (mine and others) build your awareness of resilience and dependence, knowing that you don’t face these challenges alone. Each of our journeys uniquely unfold and it is beyond our human comprehension to puzzle the suffering some face while others seem to walk a rosier path.

    In regard to the other comments:
    Isn’t it interesting to learn what we can from all the previous experiences relayed to us through scripture? Some seem to live like Job, experiencing great loss, that seems hard to fathom. While others seem called to be like Joseph, suffering affliction and glory while being trained to store resources and build the Kingdom as directed by the Holy Spirit. I sense some are called to be like Hannah, crying out in prayer as they wait patiently to birth babies, ministries, identities and learning to sacrifice those things dearest to them to be prepared for the future. I gather some like Samson, are bearing hard lessons, learning how to die to self to the extent that they physically become a sacrifice for the cause of the Kingdom. Perhaps some are like Enoch or Elijah, but the ratio of those translated ones could also be quite small in comparison to the 2 billion+ proclaimed Christians? Could there be Goshens? Could there be a second exodus planned? I don’t have all the answers. But Abba Father does. Some are Generals and some are foot soldiers or arrow makers. We know HE has already won the war, but HE’s invited us to be on the winning side.

    As the body of our Savior, we are bound to function differently and have different purposes to serve. We need to be wary of cancer cells (antiChrist attacks) and autoimmune conditions–where we attack other parts of the body, making satan quite pleased. With the human body’s specialization, doesn’t it make sense that our Savior has positioned us to fulfill the role He uniquely designed us for? Some are spleen cells designed for multiple roles critical to immunity. Some are cells related to sight, some are cells related to hearing, some are cells relating to the tongue, or the nasal passages. They operate differently. They look differently. Sometimes various parts share some similar goals–like keep things clean and sometimes they appear to be at odds if they are not properly functioning. Some parts are tiny–like the stapes bone in the inner ear. Some parts are large–like the liver. But, we, as HIS body, function best when in unity (without dis ease). Let’s promote our King’s agenda, love God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength; love our neighbors as ourselves; accept grace; build faith, spread the gospel, forgive ourselves and others (and God–if, in some cases, we have blamed him–not that He’s done anything wrong). We don’t know how much time any one of us has to fulfill our role.
    None of us has seen the way God is directing the final scenes of this HIS masterpiece.

    My heart hurts and commiserates with your pain and suffering. Thank you for sharing your life with us, your eternal heavenly family. I know I’m not alone in saying that I care about you, love you and am praying for you. I wish I could do more.

    There seems to be a small group of believers that are targeted and persecuted on a level that most haven’t yet experienced and I’m convinced that although it certainly doesn’t seem like it, it’s actually a blessing because the refining that this brings about is necessary to fulfill the Lords purposes and plans for them/this group.

    Weeping may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning. I know the ‘night’ feels like years, even decades (and for some it is!!), but He is faithful to fulfill ALL of His promises (joy coming in the morning!! Out of ‘mourning’), even though His timeframe and ours on earth can feel literally worlds apart.

    I’m sure you already do, but please rebuke aloud the spirit of suicide, fear, anxiety, lack, poverty, theft, anything that would come to steal kill or destroy. Speak aloud the Word of God’s promises. The enemy is therefore put on notice that you are a child of the Most High and believe no matter how things LOOK with our physical natural eyes. The things in the spirit can vary from how they manifest or appear in the natural. For example, just when it looks like ‘all is lost or hopeless’, there is provisions and blessings on the way that we just don’t see yet.

    Personally find it can be helpful to play audio Scriptures, even praise music (when I least feel like it, it’s needed the most!.) Praising the Lord for His mercy and goodness, when ones life is in complete shambles and we least feel like it, is VERY POWERFUL!! Speaking aloud, thanking Him for being a good good Father. He wants to hear that His children love and trust in Him no matter what comes their way. Praising IN THE STORM often produces movement. Not that we are to try manipulate our Father, but He knows our hearts and circumstances.

    I’ve been sick, chronic pain, disabled and mostly bed-bound for well over a decade now. Been without a home of my own for going on 4 years now. I’ve slept in car, couch-surfed, motels and other temporary lodgings. All my ‘stored up’ stuff has been ripped away unjustly, I was illegally evicted and the remaining items thrown on the apartment complex lawn. Items I scrimped and bought were chewed up by rodents. Basically, my life resembles yours more than you can imagine without going into further detail. This isn’t about me. I’m not in your shoes, I don’t mean to ‘compare’ situations at all, only to provide a degree of camaraderie that you are not alone in your situation. No 2 lives are alike, no 2 Calling’s identical. The Lord has His reasons for everything that’s happening as none of it is a surprise to Him!!! He often allows things like this in order to prepare and ready us for a specific reason or calling. Maybe you already have had some insight into this, more than others.

    Please know that you are loved deeply by your maker, your Father. He has not rejected you! Quite the opposite. What you and others are being refined in now, others will have to go through later, and during much more difficult times that lie ahead. Better to get it over with now if you ask me, before the entire world is upside down. We pray for garments without spot or wrinkle.

    I’m taking things one day at a time because I need surgery, have a host of ailments and also need a place to live. No idea how I’m going to do any of it, but by prayer and supplication making ALL my requests be made known unto God. He knows what I have need of before I even ask. Shall we take this daily journey trusting our King together my friend?
    Phil. 4:13…DON’T FORGET

    Also, your life is a LIVING TESTIMONY and a LIVING SACRIFICE! The apostles and disciples considered it an honor. It might not feel like it when in the thick of it, but it’s an actual honor to be more like Jesus Christ and we are being made more into His image and likeness. This works an eternal weight of glory! Corrie Ten Boom is someone to look into if you feel led. God bless you my brother (assuming Elias is male?)

    Jesse Terrell – Absolutely Agree. Persecution is coming. Jesus promised persecution. We in America is not any better than anyone anywhere else. He promised persecution to all Christians; therefore if people are not being persecuted by someone in all of their life, maybe they are not a real Christians?

    I thank you for your compassion, prayers and warm words. It brought me to tears. You can not imagine how the world hates me. All all my friends I ever had reject me, hate me and even persecute me, because I follow Jesus. They all call themselves “christians”. My family, my government, the whole system persecute me and try to kill and destroy me without a break. I am destroyed now. I can’t describe what kind of and how many evil things have happened to me, it’s too much and indescribable heavy. Never ever anybody had any compassion with me. Since December 2018 I’m trembling without an end in fear and pain. The persecution was and is so heavy, so severe. I don’t know how much pain and suffering there is still to come. But the last 2 days was the first time that I was able to relax the very first time again and got faith that Jesus is coming to rescue me like he said. Since I’m not able to prepare or store any material things like food, water, toiletries, ect., God must have a different plan with me. Much love and blessings to you!
