Volcanoes & Vaccines – A Call To Repent and Intercede

In the morning of May 22, 2021, I had a dream. The sky was dark and so was the ocean. My gaze was zoomed into two pieces of land which were floating on the sea. They looked like miniature islands. The first, smaller island hit a second, larger one and pushed it towards a third island. This island, however, was colossal! It was a massive volcano and it represented all the volcanoes on the earth. Triggered by the crash, the whole island started shaking. I literally heard the volcanoes cry out in a deep, thundering voice like a man. I thought I was watching a natural disaster movie in HD! The rocks started cracking apart and hot, glowing lava emerged from underneath. The island started foaming and roaring in anger against us, human beings for rebelling against God.

I was then led by the Spirit of God to a group of people who were on the other side of the island. The situation outside was so disastrous that they were seeking temporary shelter in a cave. They had put up a tent inside the cave and it was strange because they were all wearing the same orange uniform and lined up inside the tent. They were visibly scared and some of them were so terrified that they wanted to break out of the line and flee. As one man tried to, a female supervisor hit him on the head and commanded him to show her his vaccine certificate (note: she did not explicitly say “COVID-19 vaccine”). So he got his certificate checked and the woman put a stamp of approval on the orange cap he was wearing. The man then remained in line and the dream ended.

On May 23, one day after the dream, a volcano erupted in the Democratic Republic of the Congo which killed about 30 people and left thousands homeless and in dire need. This is just the beginning, the “small islands moving” as a foresign for more. People are going to build up temporary shelters but above all else, they will try to get a false sense of security through vaccines! COVID-19 is not the end, there will be more pandemics and more vaccines. Many will choose to bow to fear and remain unrepentant about trusting man-made securities more than they trust Yahweh, the only God. Is it not silly to want to fight the wrath of God with a piece of paper? After all, when a volcano has erupted? But that is how foolish we become when we turn our backs to God.

This word is, however, NOT about COVID-19-vaccines! This is about the real issue – the issue of fear, unbelief and idolatry; this is about the HEART. In the end, God is NOT going to judge you because you took the vaccine but because He sees the heart behind the action. And that heart, only He and you know. Did you primarily do it out of love for others or did you do it because you thought it is going to rescue you and this world? When you were doing it out of fear of death or because you believed the vaccine is going to make everything good, not God, then you need to repent and ask God for forgiveness! And He is faithful and just to forgive you and merciful enough to even remove every evil influence the vaccine has on you, both physically and spiritually.

Many Christians who are constantly condemning people who take vaccines and who are fooled into an ugly sense of spiritual superiority also need to repent! Yes, you! Repent of your mercilessness! Repent for believing that the evil spiritual influence of vaccines is greater and more powerful than God’s love for this world. Repent of your fear! He is mighty enough to save and He does not see the outer shell like you do. He sees the heart behind our actions. I warn you to not continue in this rebellion against God by making fun of people who take vaccines in a judging, ruthless way. Your heart is just as ugly and looks maybe even worse before God. Hypocrites! Hypocrites on both sides! Humble yourselves before God and be silent before Him!

No, this is an urgent call to repent and to intercede. To take action to care for those who suffer from the consequences of sin. Just think of all the innocent children in Congo and in the coming future who are going to die or become homeless because of volcanic eruptions! They will need our prayer, and they will also need our practical help and support. Care about the real issues, care about the orphans and the widows. Love your neighbors, even if they make foolish mistakes. Only God knows the true heart, who are you to judge someone by what you think is the right choice? Pray for the victims of judgment that they will be comforted and find refuge in Christ. That their lives will be restored again and flourish. Are we not in this together? Aren’t these things happening because of the weight of the sins of the entire humanity?

Everyone needs to repent. Read Isaiah 44 and ask God to reveal the idols in your life. If you are truly humble and if you believe in God’s love for you, you will ask Him to examine your heart and you will be willing to receive God’s forgiveness and love for you. And if you do, you will feel such a burden fall off from your shoulders! I emphasize this because I care about you. Oh, my dear sisters and brothers in Christ! Let us be filled with the Holy Spirit and be one in mind with Christ. The Holy Spirit does not make us judgmental or timid but gives us courage, power, humility, joy, love and self-discipline. It is because our Father first forgave us that we can be merciful towards others. We are supposed to bear and serve one another in love. That is when the world will truly know that Christ is real.

Prophetic Warning: Who Is Your All?

This morning I had a dream where God showed me several cases of idolatry. I only remember one part of the dream because I was curious, even in the dream, as to why this woman was judged guilty. I know that this word is for someone. My beloved sisters, please be careful not to make an idol of a man. It’s the same for you, brothers – never make an idol of a woman you love. It’s idolatry before the Lord and therefore NOT HARMLESS. Fear God and you will be healed and set free!

In the dream, I saw a young woman (around 20 years old) who was happy to be with the love of her life. I was shown a scene from her everyday life: she kissed him goodbye in the morning as they were leaving the house and she told him that he was her all. My All,” she said. Now in the dream, I was being led from one scene to another to see in which cases people were committing idolatry and displeasing God. As I saw the young couple, I could not understand why the weight of her sin should be so heavy. I asked the Lord and the woman spoke again, this time for everyone in the street to hear, that the man was My All! I then understood why. She was actually worshipping the man, not God. Even if in reality she was not telling everyone or even her lover that he was her all, God knew what was deep inside her heart, He exposed it by making her say it herself. This is what happens when you are before God. You cannot fake it. Your mouth will say what’s inside and what you’re mostly thinking about.

Warnings From Israel’s History

For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers and sisters, that our ancestors were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea. They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. They all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ. Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered in the wilderness.

Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did. Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written: “The people sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry.” We should not commit sexual immorality, as some of them did—and in one day twenty-three thousand of them died. We should not test Christ, as some of them did—and were killed by snakes. And do not grumble, as some of them did—and were killed by the destroying angel.

These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come. So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. 

1. Corinthians 10:1-15 NIV

Remember the number one commandment we are to obey as God’s people:

And God spoke all these words: “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me.”

Exodus 20:1-3 NIV

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.”

Matthew 22:37-38 NIV

Here is a prayer you can pray:

My God, I thank you that you examine my heart and that you tell me what's going on inside my heart. Forgive me for making an idol out of the man I desire and giving him more room than You. I repent for breaking the very first commandment and I ask you to release me from this burden of sin. Please set me free from deception so that I may not perish. Fill me with Your Spirit that I may see you more clearly! Open the eyes of my heart and awaken a hunger in me, only for You. I want to pursue you more than I pursue this guy. I am truly sorry for grieving you and making you jealous. I am sorry for not believing that you are the love of my life. I cannot see it yet, God, my heart fails me again and again, but you are strong where I am weak. So I surrender my heart to you and ask you to do what only you can do. Show me the next steps so that I can live out what I just confessed and really return to you. I praise you for your mercy and goodness. Thank you for your love. I believe, Lord. Give me grace and give me faith. Amen.

God bless you!
