Lost City


I am searching for you, I have to find you,

I have to reach you. I'm hollering for you,

it's echoing back at me like it's mocking me.

Inside me is a strong desire, a burning fire.

It alone is keeping me going.

In the silence, I walk in the dead night,

as I hold my candle.

The light invades the darkness of the forest.

Fear is taunting me with it's sharp unforgiving torment.

I deny it entrance as I continue to follow

the path that's lit before me.

After what seems to be an eternity,

I've come up on a city.

The city has dim reds lights.




This city reminds me of a horror movie. Everything gleamed with a dark blood red tint.

I'm entering into the city now, as the wind shifted its direction and is now on me. The wind seemed to carry a message, a sign. Whispering in my ear was the faint cries of the people out in the distance.

There is pain I can feel it, it feels like lighting striking my soul. With the attempt to smother me, waves of sadness are crashing upon my body because I'm looking at the ones that didn't survive.

I continue to go deeper into the city, as I hold my candle. As my candle lites up the alley, it falls on a man in the corner.

"Hello!", "Hello!" "Sir can I help you?" He just sat there with this numb trance like look on his face. As if no one was talking to him. "come into the light" "Sir" "let me help you please."

He's not responding to me, I have to keep moving. I continue to go through the city as I hold my candle high, trying to save whoever is willing to be saved.

2 Peter 3:3-4 states — knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”

 Jude states— how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts.These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit

People are running and hiding from my light. cursing at the light & me. They don't understand, I really do care for them. I really do know how to help them also. They've been lied to so much they don't even regonize the truth or who really can help them.

There's a woman standing in the middle of the street. The street was cracked right down the middle. I can hear pieces of black top and earth breaking off inside the split ground and she was standing next to it.

In a loud dry cracky voice she is asking me"why can't I die?", "why can't I kill myself?", "Every time I try it doesn't work."

She has cuts and wounds all over her body.

Answering her:

"In Revelation 9:6 The Bible says that this time will be the most horrible and terrible in the history of mankind where people will seek death but death will flee from them. Did you hear me! People will actually try to kill themselves but God will not allow them to die. This is why you can't not kill yourself".

"We are living in the days of Revelation right now! The days God warned us of". "You can call on Jesus and be saved", "He wants to save you".

Replying in a spirit of hate & bitterness she's screaming, "There is no Jesus!" "Show me your Jesus!" Again & again in rage she won't stop!

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 2 Thessalonians 2:

Jeremiah 16:19 O LORD, my strength and my stronghold, And my refuge in the day of distress, To You the nations will come From the ends of the earth and say, "Our fathers have inherited nothing but falsehood, Futility and things of no profit."

 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. Romans 1:25

"But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling-block, and unto the Gentiles foolishness; but unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God." (1 Corinthians 1:23-24)

Wow! What has happened to this city? How could they have forgot about Jesus? What about all the proof, evidence, historical records, miracles and the promise of salvation in Jesus? Did this city destroy or hide the truth?

They have made Jesus out to be a curse to them, like He's really their enemy!

Biting the hand that feeds them is the last thing this city needs right now!

They have chose to serve their enemy.

The results are evident sin, death, murder,hate &

suffering are running rampant here.

They are in lack of everything because they have

quenched the spirit of the living God.

All in the name of freedom, peace and survival,

but when their time runs out it will all have been done in vain.

This city is insane they are calling truth lies & lies truth.

If they will take only one step into the light they can be saved.

Sounds easy right?

It is! I am telling them how easy it is.

How many will listen?

Only God knows the end from the beginning.


Everyone in this city will be accountable for their words against God if they chose to believe & accept Jesus Christ.They are so close to His eternal promises.But a lot of them are being rebellious and refusing to do themselves any good.They will have no excuse on judgement day.It has been made way to easy for them to be saved.Whosoever calls on the name of Jesus will be saved!


So for me — I'm still walking through the

dead cities holding up my candle.

I see their still dying.

Their still a lot people lost.

They don't understand this life.

I know that they want more out of life.

So I keep on searching for them,

praying for them, loving them.

I have to find you & I won't stop

calling for you.

Come out of the darkness into the light before it's to late!

This light I am holding and God's fire that burns in me,

is lighting the whole world on fire with the glory of God.

For it is time,

the time is here for Jesus to have what He died for!

Then you will be arrested and handed over to be punished and be put to death. Everyone will hate you because of me. Many will give up their faith at that time; they will betray one another and hate one another. Then many false prophets will appear and fool many people.Such will be the spread of evil that many people's love will grow cold. But whoever holds out to the end will be saved. And this Good News about the Kingdom will be preached through all the world for a witness to all people; and then the end will come. Matt 24
