I hear the Lord say to the West…

I hear the Lord say to the West: Many are the cries of the afflicted. Great are the sins of the proud. Many years I have waited but have found no one. 

“Sing, barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labor; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband,” says the Lord. “Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities.

I have brought this about for my name’s sake. The hour has come for the barren to bear fruits. I desire to taste them in your everyday lives! Where is the peace I have left with you? Where is the mercy I taught you to desire more than sacrifice? Since when did you consider yourself so highly as a leader of faith when I was angry with you? Did you not recognize how far you had drifted away from me? When will you revere me? Oh, but I say:

“Do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood. For your Maker is your husband— the Lord Almighty is his name— the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth. The Lord will call you back as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit— a wife who married young, only to be rejected,” says your God. 

Do not fear what is going to come. Do not fear my reproach. For there is a debt you have to pay to those around you but hear me when I say I already paid the full price for you to return to me! There is nothing that stands between you and me, I have washed you clean! Return to me, my bride! Return to me! You will be healed when you revere my name!

“For a brief moment I abandoned you, but with deep compassion I will bring you back. In a surge of anger I hid my face from you for a moment, but with everlasting kindness I will have compassion on you,” says the Lord your Redeemer. “To me this is like the days of Noah, when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth. So now I have sworn not to be angry with you, never to rebuke you again. Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you.

Remember my covenant of peace with you. Remember what price I have paid for you so that you can be with me. I am neither resentful nor bitter when I say this to you. I am God. I just want you back. I want you to love me with everything you are. Pay the price of love to everyone around you, show me that you want to return to me: love one another as I have loved you. You have all you need- you have me, I am all you need.

The Clock Is Ticking

I hear the clock is ticking. The time is near for the people of God to repent. A mass movement of repentance is coming to bring in the new!

I hear beware of idols that bring you down to the pit at this hour. Pray for the people of God, don’t rest in prayer until this word is fulfilled.

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.
