“Voice of the Martyrs” & LORD SABAOTH

My fellow soldiers, I had no intention of posting any messages after August 12th, but I have received a dream and a Word that I believe pertains to my posting on August 12th, entitled ‘13th It’s Too Late’.

On Saturday, 8-15-20, I had a dream that I felt was very important, but I could not remember all the details. I prayed and asked the Lord to give it to me again if it had anything to do with what I needed as instructions for my upcoming mission. I received the dream a SECOND TIME on Sunday, 8-16-20.


I was only an observer viewing from slightly above a large open area. There was a flock of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of sheep. A rider, dressed in black flowing hooded garment, was moving swiftly through the flock on horseback. He was swinging a large sickle or curved sword of some sort. I could not see the rider’s face . . . only his bony skeletal-like fingers. The sheep made no sound as the rider slaughtered them all one by one. It was a bloody and gruesome sight. I was weeping as I watched in horror. I was then transported to another location. It reminded me of the US House of Representatives where the State of the Union is given, or perhaps a large courtroom of some sort with balcony seating. A very important man was giving a speech on the floor level and his words had everyone in the audience mesmerized. His speech was about the event I had just witnessed . . . the slaughter of the sheep. In reality, the massacre had been of many, many people. The speaker was describing the slaughter as a great thing! There was much rejoicing! Those who had come against the wishes of the majority of the world, had been wiped out in a great victory. I was listening to the speech from the balcony, dressed in a long white garment. I stood from my seated position and with a very loud voice interrupted the lies being told. I very boldly countered the man’s speech, calling for justice for those who had been slain and proclaiming them to be heroes of the Christian faith. I heard the words . . . “VOICE OF THE MARTYRS.” That was the end of the dream.

Then last night before going to sleep a little after midnight, I was praying to the Lord and asking Him to please continue to talk with me. His SILENCE for the previous 3 or 4 days was deafening. I asked if there was anything He wanted to tell me. I heard in my spirit, “LORD SABAOTH.” I even remember thinking ‘Lord of the Sabbath’ and the Holy Spirit corrected me by repeating the Word again, with emphasis on the pronunciation of ‘SABAOTH.’ I was half asleep at that point, so I decided to wait until morning to look up the meaning. In order to keep this post as short as possible, please do your own deeper research on this. Just briefly, the title “the Lord of Sabaoth” means “the Lord of hosts.” It is a title of JEHOVAH God’s military might, His strength to fight and win battles. The LORD is commander of the angelic soldiers as well as the armies of Israel. “The LORD of hosts” is defined in 1 Samuel 17:45 as “the God of the armies of Israel.” The word ‘Sabaoth’ is of profound significance in the end-times. ‘JEHOVAH Sabaoth’ (the Lord of hosts) is talking about JEHOVAH God with respect to judgment. He is the leader of the angelic armies (hosts of heaven). Hebrews 2:10 calls JESUS CHRIST ‘the captain of [Israel’s} salvation . . . a military term, a commander.

It is my understanding that the dream of August 15th/16th is connected to the Word received today (after midnight) as the scriptures given intertwine. All of these verses are somehow connected to the post of August 12th. Because the verses from James 5 and Revelation 6 are in both the dream and the Word, they are for the same time frame . . . the last days, the time of the coming of the Lord. I believe the rider in the dream to be Death . . . and he rides upon the pale horse (Rev. 6:8). I have contemplated about the full interpretation of the dream. Though I am given the opportunity to be an observer, I could very well also be a participant. The fact that I am dressed in white raiment and I hear “Voice of the Martyrs” may have a personal meaning for me. My destiny has not been totally revealed as yet, but my life is in the Lord’s hands . . . always has been . . . always will be! I only pray that I fight a good fight and that in life or in death, I will honor and glorify my King . . . my ‘LORD SABAOTH.’

Yours for the Harvest,


Scripture References (KJV):

Dream (“Voice of the Martyrs”)”:

(Note: God gave this dream to me a second time – see Genesis 41:32 “And for the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.”)

Romans 8:31-39 – “31) What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32) He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33) Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. 34) Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. 35) Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36) As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37) Nay, in all things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38) For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, not angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39) Nor height, not depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

James 5:1, 5-8 – (See below)

Isaiah 53:6-8 – “6) All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 7) He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. 8) He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? For he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.”

Matthew 10:24, 32-34; 38-39 – “ 24) The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. . . . 32) Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33) But, whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. 34) Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I come not to send peace, but a sword. . . . 38) And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me is not worthy of me. 39) He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.”

Rev. 6:7-11 – “7) And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8) And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. 9) And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held. 10) And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 11) And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow-servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.”


1 Samuel 17:45-47 – “45) Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. 46) This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. 47) And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’S, and he will give you into our hands.

Romans 9:25-29 – “25) As he saith also in O’see (Hosea 1:10), I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. 26) And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God. 27) Esaias (Isaiah 10:22; 11:11a) also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: 28) For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth. 29) And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.”

Hebrews 2:8-11 – “8) Thou has put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. 9) But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. 10) For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11) For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,”

James 5:1-9 – “1) Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. 2) Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten, 3) Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire, Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. 4) Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. 5) Ye have lived in pleasure upon the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. 6) Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. 7) Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. 8) Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts; for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. 9) Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.”

Revelation 6:7-11 – (see above)

Revelation 6:12-17 – “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13) And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14) And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15) And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16) And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17) For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”

Revelation 19:11-16 – “11) And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12) His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13) And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14) And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15) And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16) And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

2 Thessalonians 1:7-12 – “7) And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, 8) In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9) Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; 10) When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. 11) Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power; 12) That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

  1. Wow. I was just in Rev 6 this morning, noting the martyrs cry for justice. And another believer had recently mentioned the “sabaoth” aspect of God. Lord what are You trying to say? How do You want us to pray? Thanks for sharing sister.

  2. Lord, please flood this earth with Your justice. Come deliver us Your people. Please lead the charge with Your angel armies now, slaughtering demon and man, who have set themselves up against You and Your anointed ones. We loose Your justice down here, we loose victory for Your angels now in Your name.

    Those who come against the ‘one world religion’ will be seen as holding back humanity. I am assuming that will cause the mass martyrdom seen represented.

  4. Michelle

    Thank you for sharing, brother! The moment I read the part that you stated being in white garment and the words “voice of the martyrs” were pronounced after you stood up for the martyred saints, I said to myself, “this man will be martyred”. Whether this is your destiny or not, may the Lord grant you peace. I had recently asked the Lord about some questions I had about martyrdom and I just read a Christian comic book about the life of a female martyr in the times of Jesus. Maybe this is a word even for me.

    @ Averine,

    If I can add a little encouragement, remember this verse: “My ways are HIGHER than your ways.” Think about it, and then PRAY for understanding as to what He TRULY means by this. Where does the battle occur? Where does Michael fight the dragon? It says in His word – TAKE IT for what it says!

    Try it this way, look at John’s description of the New Jerusalem. How did he describe it, what did it do??? What are the implications of this??

    I say these things because you are concerned about the “13th”, and what you understood. I went through your concerns years ago because the same thing happened (and happens) to me. It is a matter of understanding WHERE these things happen, and what GOD says is “fulfillment” – NOT what men say.

    This came to my understanding while reading your post; maybe it will give you food for thought and prayer regarding your date quandary, as well as your gruesome dream and the Lord of Hosts. Reread the story of Lazarus, from start to finish. What is the POINT, THE REASON for this story? (It is not just, “Golly, He brought a dead man back to life!”). Notice that there are A LOT of interesting details. Also, Jesus uses an interesting expression, “Lazarus, come FORTH!”. Also consider what Jesus said what each of us must do in this life to enter the kingdom of heaven. Pray and ask for His discernment for YOU!

    I pray for you, Averine, and I pray for all.

    Some days ago I made a video about persecution:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rlPKnp2qOo&t=748s Endtime: persecution

  7. Cassandra

    Part of the lyrics to the hymn ” A Mighty Fortress is our God” are …”Lord Sabaoth His Name, from age to age the same, and He will win the battle…”. I was shown in a dream a year or two ago that I was beheaded. I am not sure if that means I definitely will be or not. The guillotine malfunctioned before my turn, and I rallied the others waiting in line by singing a hymn. There was no fear, but rather excitement and joy that I would soon be with my King and Savior Yahushua. As believers we need to be prepared to be beheaded, martyred. Voice of the Martyrs is a wonderful organization, and reading their publications shows how our true brothers and sisters are persecuted all around the world.

    Blessings, encouragement, love, and shalom to all,

    An Interpretation:

    When the 5th seal is opened we hear about martyred saints and those that will be martyred.

    And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held (Rev 6:9)

    They hold fast to the testimony of Jesus Christ and are martyred. The Word of God goes out just prior to the end as our Lord promised:

    And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. (Mat 24:14)

    Also in Rev 14:6

    And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people (Rev 14:6)

    When the true Word of God goes out saints are martyred. This is the way the gospel spreads. Not something “some” modern Americans(Christians) are used to or want to hear for sure but this is a fact. The reason it is not happening now is because most Christians right now are indistinguishable from unbelievers so the world does not bother them too much but this is about to change.

    The 5th seal is speaking of the White Robes. Notice the correlation between Rev 14:6 above and Rev 7:9

    After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands (Rev 7:9)

    When the gospel goes out to every nation, kindred, people, and tongue guess what happens? People are martyred from every nation, kindred, people, and tongue.

    Back to the 5th seal of Rev 6:9-11:

    And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

    And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

    And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. (Rev 6:9-11)

    The White Robes are waiting until their fellowservants(brethren), will be killed. This is also the same as waiting for the gospel to continue to go out to all nations, kindreds, peoples, and tongues because this is how their fellowservants become martyrs.

    Secondly they’re waiting for God to avenge their deaths. When the innocent blood of man is spilled on the earth that blood requires retribution and so God will avenge that blood. (Num 35:33)

    But I don’t believe these martyred saints are in heaven sitting around doing nothing because the Word tells us that they are: …before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple… Rev 7:15

    What is this serving? Well for one it is worship because I don’t believe it is possible to be in the presence of Almighty without honoring and thanking Him for His awesomeness. I believe they also serve in other ways doing the work and will of the Lord in Heaven. They don’t need to rest like we do on earth so they operate 24/7 which is to say they operate eternally.

    As usual Satan has a dilemma. Allow the truth of the Word of God to go out and save the souls of men or kill those who are preaching the Word of God thereby creating martyrs that God will avenge and give new bodies in heaven that are constantly serving the will of God.

    Sound familiar? Satan faced a similar dilemma when Jesus was on earth. Kill him or allow Him to continue to convert souls to Himself. Of course satan did not know that killing Him would free mankind from sin as the scripture says: “…none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.” 1 Cor 2:8

    I believe the “Lord of Sabaoth” that you received is affirmation that the Lord of Hosts is in control of His Army on earth AND in Heaven and though the sheep are slaughtered on the earth the Lord of Hosts is right there next to them ready give them new bodies and a new mission for His Kingdom where they will serve without ceasing with Him forever.

    One final note. Rev 14:6 is what I call a “time piece” because if it is linked to the White Robes which I think it is then I believe it allows us to see the next thing that happens sometime after the 5th seal is opened:

    And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. Rev 14:8

    “that great city”

    One of the many reasons why?

    And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus… Rev 17:6

    God allows the fall of the city of Babylon because of the wrongfully martyred saints.


  9. McKana

    True it means “the Lord of hosts.” same as “TSEBAYOTH Adonai”
    Listen to this:-
    Kadoish, Kadoish, Kadoish, TSEBAYOTH Adonai ‘

    Thank you Dear Averine
    God bless you all.

  10. Diana

    Emphasisinging him being the Lord of Sabaoth or the Sabbath and it meaning he is Lord of hosts is very interesting because of the times we are in. It reminded me of the belief in the Sabbath being important in the end times because of the mark of the beast. There’s a theory that the mark is observing a Sabbath that is not of God.

  11. Catherine

    Diana, this is the belief of the Adventist. Read Galatians…it’s not about Sabbath or another day, the Mark of the Beast is a sign on the forehead or right hand. The first christians met the first day of the week (Acts).

  12. Sally

    We necessarily shouldn’t prepare with countless gallons of water, a years supply of soups, corn, green beans and a bag of chips, what we really need to be preparing for is persecution big time. Forget about your bellies body of Christ, rather watch out for your necks, and when the rubber meets the road will you deny Christ OR grow some …..? When presented with making the choice, ninety per cent of you reading this will cave like a very cheap accordion, and if you suddenly get rather agitated reading this, I will have made my point.

  13. Josh

    Day of Atonement. Yom Kippur.
