God gave me a dream of the coming tribulation
Gods people will not be raptured you must prepare
Last night I had a dream of the coming tribulation the way it started was rather strange and I myself don't understand it. The only explanation I have is it was symbolism. I saw crafts coming out of heaven. When the prophet Elijah was taken up to heaven a chariot of fire appeared and took him up in a whirlwind. This time no one was taken up but angels were being dropped off to the earth. These angels were sent to help certain people chosen by God to be his voice in the earth and his example to others to come into the fullness of the spirit of God the full redemption of Christ.(Romans 8:23) These are the dead in Christ who rise first. What are they dead to? The world the flesh any of the systems of man. They are dead to anything that is not of God, but they are alive unto God. They have loved not the world and the things of the world, but have set there affections on things that are above where Christ sits at the right hand of the father.
Colossians 2:20Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, 21(Touch not; taste not; handle not; 22Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
Simultaneously as all this was happening God was withdrawing his mercy that has kept all these world systems of man and the flesh from total collapse These worldly systems are not Gods ways they are the wisdom of man and not Gods wisdom and the only thing they can produce is death, death to itself and anyone or anything that take part in them. Gods chosen are to be in the world but not of it. We are to be a light in the darkness, showing the world of Gods ways not partaking in the ways of the world, all who do will perish with it. Some of these systems include but are not limited to politics health care food systems monetary system, although we need money to be in the world our trust should not be in money we should not take part in the systems of greed lust. Jesus spoke much about money ,but he always spoke against it. money can very easily become a competing God. Food is the same God created the earth to produce everything we need to sustain life but man has taken food and made a system out of it. a system for mass production genetically modifying seeds, processing and preserving all for the almighty dollar. The medical system is the same, God gave food and herbs and in an environment of faith and trust in him our bodies have the ability to heal itself. I am not against doctors, but I am against that system that really does not care about the health and welfare of people, but again only cares about their own selfish gain. Touch not taste not handle not these things or you will perish with them. God does not care how much money you have, he does not care what kind of car you drive, how influential you are in the church. He is not impressed by your position at work or in society. God only cares about how much you love and trust in him. You will find him when you seek him with your whole heart. when you truly trust in the lord with your whole heart you trust him in every area of your life. That is the life of the spirit true life, the other is the life of the flesh and only leads to death.
Romans 8:5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God
This is gods judgment he will lift his hand of protection of mans systems and the host of demons that are behind all of them will be free to work their death and destruction. Everything that man has put there trust and affections in other than God himself will be stripped away and the only thing that will save you is the mind of Christ or the mind of the spirit. Any other mind set will become insanity. You will not be able to function in this environment with anything other than the mind of Christ. I saw people walking around as though they were insane calling out to those idols that once gave them security, now security was only found in the one true living God,but there minds were not able to receive from the holy spirit. Maybe they had never been born of the spirit and did not have the holy spirit in them I don't know, but it was as if they had gone insane.
I was just walking around observing all this when I saw into the spirit realm and I could see demons and I would watch as they used people to do their works of death and destruction. I knew this was part of the caught up in the spirit. The battle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities and powers of the air,it is a spiritual battle and being able to see into the spirit like that enabled me to thwart their efforts and it became clear to me that coming against people or even the systems themselves was futile. It was only in understanding how the enemy was working and knowing how to come against him, by knowing God and his ways that any ground was gained. I remember thinking I wish I knew and studied Gods word more because it was only the knowledge of God and his word that was keeping me and once you are in the battle it is not time then to learn, then it is time to apply what you know. We have the word of God and the spirit of God to teach us all things. The perfect combination. The reason Christ came and died on the cross was so we could have the holy spirit. The word without the spirit is just law. Jesus said it was better for us that he go away so that the holy spirit could come and lead and guide us into all truth. Plese take full advantage of the gift of God now while there is still time. don't read your bible like it is your duty read to seek after God and let the holy spirit show you what the true meaning is. put away tradition and doctrines of man. You need to have that connection to God yourself not only through your pastor or any spiritual authority. Paul said he learned all he knew while in the desert for three years, no man taught him (Galatians 1:10-18)
Good news of the coming glory
As I walked farther I heard a group of people gathered together having an open air meeting singing and praising God. I instantly knew in my spirit this was a good meeting. The person speaking was not in charge of the meeting it seemed like no one person was in charge. The speaker was just leading and all the people the person speaking included were just praying and worshipping God and seeking his guidance and waiting on him for whatever it was he wanted to do.
I started to walk into the meeting and was going to sit with the congregation and God spoke to me and said no I want you to go to where the speaker is, I want you to speak. as I approached the front I walked up behind the speaker there were others there and no one said to me you can't be up here everyone just sort of sensed in their spirit this was God. You see these people where desperate, they did not care about being in the spot light, they did not care about how much money would be given that day, money was no good anyway. they were desperately seeking God and if this stranger was sent by him then so be it. Nobody was out for their own they were all one accord they had one purpose and that was to receive from God, there very life depended on it. This is what God is looking for in his people today. The day of the one man show is over, that will be judged. Emphasis on buildings and money and exalting men will all be judged. God is calling his people to rise above all that nonsense and humble ourselves and pray and desperately seek his face in one accord.
2Chronicles 7:14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
As I stood there they started to sing a song that went like this I love you lord I seek you lord. It was as though they were truly seeking and saying this to God they were not concerned with the person next to them they were just singing with there whole hearts to God. I closed my eyes and joined in with them in one accord and the presence of God swept over me and I saw that ever since I was a child I used to fellowship with God and although I was not always walking in his ways he never left me or forsook me. He showed me how my whole life was planned for this moment and things that I did not understand I now saw that it was all preparation for this very time. I am not a very social person and I have a very low self esteem, but God showed me how that was to protect me from becoming proud and keep me from slipping into that same man pleasing mold many have slipped into.(2 Corinthians 12:6-7) There is such a fine line we cross and think we are doing Gods will and we are doing great things in the eyes of man, but to God it is abomination and little use for his kingdom.
After God showed me all these things I woke up. The dream did not have to go any farther, you see God has already shown me the end of the dream in my spirit. I have seen myself preaching and the presence and power of God is so strong my physical body can almost not stand it is only by his spirit that I am able to do it. The spirit that raised Christ from the dead can also quicken our mortal bodies (Romans 8:11). And he has given me a taste of that awesome glory that will fill the earth.
Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
I feel his presence now as I Write, believe me brothers and sisters Paul knew what he was saying when he wrote that. That glory is better than anything you will ever experience in this old natural world, anything! The tribulation will purge the earth purify it and the people in it so that glory will be able to fill the whole earth.
Numbers 14:20 And the LORD said, I have pardoned according to thy word: 21But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.
Isaiah 60: 1Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. 2For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
