I closed my eyes and saw the sea…all of a sudden the clouds became dark and the seas began to roar and the clouds began to rumble. Then I felt the earth-shaking beneath my bed but I could not open my eyes. I was laying there like a heavy lion because I knew the Lord was with me during this vision. And as the shaking became more intense, I heard the trumpets…..and then I opened my eyes and I couldn’t breathe.
All I kept telling myself after I came back from this intense vision was that no matter how dark the world looks, no matter what darkness is to come-we should not be afraid! God is with his people! For he was with us in the beginning and he will be with us in the end! Let me show you what scripture says about the beginning and the end…..
In Genesis 1:2 it says the earth was barren with no form of life; it was under a roaring ocean covered with darkness. BUT the spirit of GOD was moving over the water.
It is true that GOD’s spirit is over us, with us alive through all things. To be still and know that he is God is the most beautiful place you could ever go to. Think about nature and how he moves all the birds from one place to another. They do not worry about where they will end up because their maker is always with them. If he cares about the birds so much, why would you believe that he did not care about the condition of your heart? He wants us to love him and see him in all things.
Luke 21:25 says that strange things will happen to the sun, moon, and stars. The nations on earth will be afraid of the roaring sea and tides, and they won’t know what to do.
God will shake this planet up before Jesus comes to get his people. The scripture goes on to say, in verse 26, that the people will be so frightened that they will faint because of what is happening to the world. EVERY POWER IN THE SKY WILL BE SHAKEN! Can you imagine! Our world has already been rocking from earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis and other natural disasters. We actually experienced the solar storms earlier this year, which I will have to write about that in one of my entries. But the point I am trying to make here is this: Are YOU ready? Are you ready when that day comes? Are you prepared to see that the world we are living in now is not the real deal? Luke 25:27 says the Son of Man (Jesus) will be coming in a cloud with great power and glory. My prayer and hope is that your heart is prepared today for his arrival!
