judgment is coming!
JUDGMENT IS COMING!
It all started in January of 2009. God woke me up and said, “Judgment is coming.” He then gave me scriptures from Ezekiel 14, 18, and 21. He gave the chapters to me in their entirety, but to make the message easy to share, I have condensed it into four points, but please take the time to read the entire chapters.
IDOLS IN OUR HEART
First, He said, “Son of man, these men have set up idols in their hearts, and put before them that which causes them to stumble into iniquity. Should I let Myself be inquired of at all by them? “Therefore speak to them, and say to them, ‘Thus says the LORD GOD: “Everyone of the house of Israel who sets up his idols in his heart, and puts before him what causes him to stumble into iniquity, and then comes to the prophet, I the LORD will answer him who comes, according to the multitude of his idols, that I may seize the house of Israel by their heart, because they are all estranged from Me by their idols.’ “Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘Thus says the LORD God: “Repent, turn away from all your abominations. For anyone of the house of Israel, or of the strangers who dwell in Israel, who separates himself from Me and sets up his idols in his heart and puts before him what causes him to stumble into iniquity, then comes to a prophet to inquire of him concerning Me, I the LORD will answer him by Myself. I will set My face against that man and make him a sign and a proverb, and I will cut him off from the midst of My people. Then you shall know that I am the LORD.” (Ezekiel 14:2-8)
We are all guilty of looking at things that we want more than we want God. This is called a idolatry. It is an abomination. When we put anyone or anything ahead of Him, we are separating ourselves from God. Unless we turn our face away from the idol and toward God, unless we rip the idol off of the throne of our heart, there is not one thing that we can ask of God that He can hear. Not only does He not hear us, but when we come to Him with idols still in our heart to ask Him for any- thing, He will set His face against us to cut us off and make us a sign and a proverb amongst His people. God is serious. This is a personal, individual message. He will no longer let us follow after other gods. We have to repent, or we will not make it into the Kingdom of Heaven.
Second, God said, “Son of man, when a land sins against Me by persistent unfaithfulness, I will stretch out My hand against it; I will cut off its supply of bread, send famine on it. Even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver only themselves by their righteous- ness.” (Ezekiel 14:13-14) This is a strong warning to our nation.
In January of 2009, the month the LORD gave me this message, a new President took office. Since that time our country has persistently turned her back on God. I think the ax is already laid at the root of the tree. Judgment is coming to this country. I don’t think there is anything that we can do to change that. Our country has chosen its path, so God will pour out His fury on us; however, even in the midst of judgment, God sends mercy. “Yet behold, there shall be left in it a remnant who will be brought out, both sons and daughters; surely they will come out to you, and you will see their ways and their doings. Then you will be comforted concerning the disaster that I have brought upon Jerusalem, all that I have brought upon it. And they will comfort you, when you see their ways and their doings; and you shall know that I have done nothing without cause that I have done in it,” says the LORD God. (Ezekiel 14:22-23) Repentance has to come. We have to repent, and our children have to repent. God knows that, and He will go to great lengths to make sure this happens. Once we do, the whole world will see the fruit of our repentance - praise and thanksgiving, and it will come in the middle of hardship.
Now, look at the three men who were mentioned in this pas- sage: Noah, Daniel, and Job. Noah built an ark to save himself and his family. He did this among much ridicule. No one understood what he was doing. I don't even know if he knew exactly what he was doing. He just did what God told him to do, and his obedience prepared a way of escape, not only for him- self, but for his family as well. Then Daniel completely separated himself from Babylon. He didn't eat the food; he didn't worship the gods. He was separated. He didn’t care what the world had to offer. He was following his God.
Then there was Job - a righteous man. He did everything right, and he lost everything. He lost his family, his wealth, his health, and his honor. Yet in the midst of it all, though he didn't understand any of it, he said, "Though He slay me, yet will I still trust Him." (Job 13:15) And at the end of his trial, he said, "I had only heard about You before, but now I have seen You with my own eyes. I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance." (Job 42:5-6)
I think every one of us is going to be a Noah, a Daniel, and a Job. We will do things to prepare an ark for ourselves and for our family, things that others will not understand; we will become completely separated from this world and all it has to offer, and we will come to know God in ways we never imagined. This knowledge will come through suffering. The Bible says that when we have suffered in the flesh, we have ceased from sin. There is not any way around it - we will know suffer- ing, but in the midst of the suffering, we will also know glory.
THE SOUL WHO SINS WILL DIE
Third, the LORD said, “The soul who sins is going to die.” Sin has always been our problem, but the sin issue has not been ad- dressed for many years. It will be addressed now. Now we will not be able to depend on the righteousness of our parents or grandparents. We will not be able to point the finger at anyone else for why we didn’t believe and follow God. We will each have to give an account for our own actions. “The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself. But if a wicked man turns from all his sins which he has committed, keeps all My statutes, and does what is lawful and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die. None of the transgressions which he has committed shall be remembered against him; because of the righteousness which he has done, he shall live. Do I have any pleasure at all that the wicked should die?” says the LORD God, “and not that he should turn from his ways and live? But when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does, shall he live? All the righteous- ness which he has done shall not be remembered; because of the unfaithful- ness of which he is guilty and the sin which he has committed, because of them he shall die. Yet you say, “The way of the LORD is not fair.” Hear now, O house of Israel, is it not My way which is fair, and your ways which are not fair? When a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity, and dies in it, it is because of the iniquity which he has done that he dies.” (Ezekiel 18:20-26)
We are each coming to a time of decision. Will we continue to sin and die, or will we turn and live? God is crying out with everything in Him for us to turn. “Repent, and turn from all your transgressions, so that iniquity will not be your ruin. Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the LORD GOD. “Therefore turn and live.” (Ezekiel 18:30-32) The God of the Universe is waiting with open arms to forgive us, but like the prodigal son, we have to come to our senses.
GOD WILL UNSHEATHE HIS SWORD
Finally, God said that He is about to unsheathe His sword. Thus says the LORD, “Behold I am against you, and I will draw My sword out of its sheath and cut off both righteous and wicked from among you. Because I will cut off both righteous and wicked from you, therefore My sword shall go out of its sheath against all flesh from south to north, that all flesh may know that I, the LORD, have drawn My sword out of its sheath; it shall not return anymore.” (Ezekiel 21:3-5) God is about to pull His sword out of its sheath. When He does, wave after wave of disaster will hit us. Many people will die. Righteous people will die, and unrighteous people will die, and once it starts, it will not stop until God has judged the entire world. When the tsunami hit Japan a few years ago, I thought the sword had been unsheathed, but it hadn’t. That was just a birth pain. When this hits, it will be like that only there will be wave after wave, and it will be world-wide. We have to be prepared.
In January of 2009, when God gave me this word, judgment seemed as far away as the moon. I was a blonde, and I lived in America. I was clueless. Then God began to open up the scriptures to me. Passages that I had read for years, I now under- stood. He especially opened up the prophets. Then in September of 2009, I watched Glenn Beck for the first time. God has allowed this man to see the big picture. He exposed the corruption in our government, media bias, and the powers behind the scenes that want to control it all. He put the pieces of this big puzzle called “The World” together in such a way that even a simple person like me could understand. I began to research all he said, and I found that we have enemies from within and enemies from without.
So first, God told me judgment was coming in the Spirit. Then, He showed me in His Word. And finally, He opened my eyes to what was happening in the natural. Now it feels like judgment is at our doorstep. From the time God first spoke this word, I knew we had to prepare. At first I thought the preparation was food and water. Then, I thought I had to get political. Now, I know it is our heart we have to prepare. If our heart is right, nothing can touch us.
God, I am asking that You would come and circumcise our hearts completely so that we can love You with all of our heart and all of our soul and all of our mind and all of our strength. Cut away anything that offends You. Set us free. I ask this in Jesus’ precious name. AMEN.
Will you read the following scriptures carefully. Ask God what He is trying to say to you. Ask God what He wants you to do with what He is saying. Let Him speak to your heart. Embrace what He says, and be a doer of the Word and not just a hearer only. Journal the journey. Then, give God praise for what He does. Only God can heal a heart and set it free, but He will only do this if we let Him.
Blessings, my friends. May your heart be wide open. May you have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying, and may light and truth lead you and peace guide the way.
NOTE: When I published this book in 2015, judgment seemed close and imminent. Since that time a new President has taken office. It feels like God is being put back on His throne in our country - but not without resistance. If feels like God is allowing us time to get ready.
READ THE FOLLOWING SCRIPTURES CAREFULLY.
ASK GOD TO SPEAK TO YOUR HEART AND TELL YOU WHAT THEY MEAN.
You said, “I will reign forever as queen of the world!”
You did not reflect on your actions or think about their consequences. “Listen to this, you pleasure loving kingdom, living at ease and feeling secure.
You say, “I am the only one, and there is no other.
I will never be a widow or lose my children.”
Well, both these things will come upon you in a moment: Widowhood and the loss of your children.
Yes, these things will come upon you despite your witchcraft and magic. You felt secure in your wickedness.
“No one sees me,” you said.
But your ‘wisdom’ and ‘knowledge’ have led you astray,
And you said, “I am the only one, and there is no other.”
So disaster will overtake you, and you won’t be able to charm it away. Calamity will fall upon you, and you will not be able to buy your way out. A catastrophe will strike you suddenly, one for which you are not prepared.
Isaiah 47:7-11 Revelations 18
And now the Sovereign LORD and His Spirit have sent me with this message. This is what the LORD says – your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is good for you and leads you along paths that you should follow. “O that you had listened to My commands! Then you would have had peace flowing like a river and righteousness rolling over you like waves in the sea. Your descendants would have been like the sands along the seashore–too many to count! There would have been no need for your destruction, or for cutting off your family name.” Yet even now, be free from your captivity! Leave Babylon and the Babylonians. Sing out this message! Shout it to the ends of the earth! The LORD has redeemed His servants, the people of Israel. They were not thirsty when He led them through the desert. He divided the rock, and water gushed out for them to drink. “But there is no peace for the wicked,” says the LORD.
I am GOD, and there is none like Me.
Do not forget this! Keep it in mind! Remember this, you guilty ones. Remember the things I have done in the past.
For I alone am GOD!
Only I can tell you the future before it even happens. Everything I plan will come to pass, For I do whatever I wish. I will call a swift bird of prey from the east – A leader from a distant land to come and do My bidding.
I have said what I will do, and I will do it.
“Listen to Me, you stubborn people who are far from doing right. For I am ready to set things right, not in the distant future, but right now! I am ready to save Jerusalem and show My glory to Israel.
Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, But only one person gets the prize?
So run to win!
All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it all to win a prize that will fade away, But we do it for an eternal prize.
So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. I discipline my body like an athlete,
Training it to do what it should.
I fear that after preaching to others, I myself might be disqualified.
1 Corinthians 9:24-27
Then Joshua told the people, “Purify yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do great wonders among you.”
