“Judgement is coming to America”.
Okay, I realize that is both a phrase rather cliché as well as a phrase sounding extreme. But before you write me off as “mad” or a “nutter”, I hope you’ll hear me out.
To start, in October of 2016 I was shown, in a dream, a vision of something to come. You can read about it here.
Then there is what happened last night:
Just minutes after 1 a.m. I woke up abruptly, in a sweat, which may have had more to do with the fabric of my nightwear, but more importantly I awoke in a bit of alarm at what I had just heard in my sleep.
I’d been having what I’d call a flash dream; one that seemed mostly of symbolic pictures and was a very brief dream. It is what was spoken that caused me to awaken with a start.
I heard: “Saturday will be the start of a weekend from Hell”.
I knew when I heard it and when I awoke it was not meant as a personal warning that applied to my personal life but that it was meant more globally; just how far reaching I don’t know.
Upon awaking, while I can’t define why, my immediate sense was this was the Lord speaking, so my response was to pray, in which I said if it was the Lord speaking I was listening and could I please have some form of confirmation.
I was so charged with adrenaline I got up for a drink and some melatonin to help me in getting back to sleep. While standing at my kitchen sink with a cup of water in my hand I felt prompted to read scripture.
I sat in my recliner with Bible in my lap having no idea what I should read. I opened the Bible and soon found I was looking at the heading of Lamentations chapter 4.
I have no recollection of ever voluntarily reading from Lamentations. Truth be told, I tend to avoid chapters from of the Old Testament as it’s typically so hard to understand. Thus it is the only time I read from it is if I am directed to, and typically the only way I understand what I’m reading is with enlightenment to my mind by way of the Holy Spirit.
Last night, in the middle of the night, found me not only reading, but understanding what I was reading, and the implication of it being very clear to me.
After reading Lamentations chapter 4, I flipped some pages ahead and found my attention was drawn to Ezekiel chapter 18. With this I could, again, see practical application.
This Sunday, June 4th is Pentecost Sunday. If you, like I was until recently, are unclear on what Pentecost Sunday here, this link will take you to an article about it.
Early this past Tuesday morning, before I awoke, I heard in my sleep, “Pentecost is in four days”. At the time I was perplexed by this, and didn’t speak much about it because it didn’t make sense to me.
However, going forward in 24 hour blocks of time, from when I heard those words to four days forward brings it to Saturday morning, June 3rd, which is this Saturday.
That experience has taken on more meaning to me after my experience last night.
I realize the 4th chapter of Lamentations is written in regard to Israel, however, as I read it in the middle of last night, the impression that came to me was it is a message for America.
Like was Israel, as described, America has become like tarnished gold that has become dull through wickedness. And because of this wickedness, judgement and punishment is coming to humble the people of America. Of this, many are the warnings that have been issued, by others.
As described in Lamentations, where once we ate fine food, I believe we will beg for bread and be destitute in the streets.
While all of the text seemed to speak to me, verses 6 and 22 seemed to particularly stand out. I originally read from the KJV, but for easier readability, I’ll post them in HCSB version:
6) The punishment of my dear people
is greater than that of Sodom,
which was overthrown in an instant
without a hand laid on it.
22) Daughter Zion, your punishment is complete;
He will not lengthen your exile.
But He will punish your iniquity, Daughter Edom,
and will expose your sins.
Ezekiel chapter 18 is about personal responsibility for sin. I believe verses 26-32 speak the message I am to share:
26 When a righteous person turns from his righteousness and practices iniquity, he will die for this. He will die because of the iniquity he has practiced. 27 But if a wicked person turns from the wickedness he has committed and does what is just and right, he will preserve his life. 28 He will certainly live because he thought it over and turned from all the transgressions he had committed; he will not die. 29 But the house of Israel says, ‘The Lord’s way isn’t fair.’ Is it My ways that are unfair, house of Israel? Instead, isn’t it your ways that are unfair?
30 “Therefore, house of Israel, I will judge each one of you according to his ways.” This is the declaration of the Lord God. “Repent and turn from all your transgressions, so they will not be a stumbling block that causes your punishment. 31 Throw off all the transgressions you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. Why should you die, house of Israel? 32 For I take no pleasure in anyone’s death.” This is the declaration of the Lord God. “So repent and live!
As I am not a prophet, I can’t say what is going to happen, or that anything will actually happen; my intention is not to prophesy anything.
I am merely sharing my experience as I’ve had it. If nothing happens, out of the ordinary, this Saturday, June 3rd, then we should all thank and praise God.
But as I have had experiences in the past where I’ve believed I heard a word from the Lord, and then events followed that confirmed to me it was not just my imagination, but was in fact from the Lord, I don’t dare not share what I experienced last night, as if this truly is a warning, I feel it my responsibility to issue the warning.
As I don’t know what may be coming, I don’t know just what we are to do to prepare.
I believe the most important things we can do are as follows:
1) Sincerely pray, seeking to draw near, or nearer, to our God and repent of all things we, individually, are in need of repenting of.
2) Sincerely pray for the protection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
3) If not already done, immediately stock our pantries with emergency food, water and other emergency supplies; stock enough to sustain ourselves and our immediate families for at least two weeks.
4) Pray, read scripture, and pray some more.
