On the morning of January 1st, I was worshipping the Lord in song and praise, when suddenly I was given a vision, along with what I feel to be a very strong Word for the Church.
In the vision, I was in the midst of a sea of people. We were all standing on flat ground, close to the edge of a cliff. There was total darkness all around us, so dark I couldn’t even make out the faces of those next to me.
I looked beyond the precipice, and I saw Jesus out in the distance. There was a brilliant light all around Him. It was then I saw a narrow beam of light emanating from Him, forming what looked like a path, or bridge, leading from Him all the way to the edge of the cliff.
Just as my eyes shifted from the narrow path of light back to Jesus, He stretched His hands toward us and said, “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues!”
Jesus repeated this several times. He spoke with such urgency and pleading in His voice, as He tried to encourage His people to hurry across. But as I stood watching, only a handful of people came out of the crowd and began walking across the light bridge toward Jesus. Then two or three more started across.
The words, “Hurry, run!” came up in my spirit, but I was unable to speak. I was only there as a spectator. But I was allowed to “feel” the emotions and thoughts of His people who were standing in the darkness at the edge of the cliff.
Each time the Lord beckoned them to, “Come,” a sense of yearning would rise within the group. I could feel them press forward (like when you’re in the midst of a huge mass of people pressing toward the entrance at a football stadium or concert). But they would stop abruptly, with only two or three at a time actually breaking free and stepping onto the path of light. It was impressed upon me that the rest were being held back by fear.
I realized their focus was on the narrow path of light, that they were afraid it was too narrow for them to cross. Although they were in the dark, pressed up against the edge of a cliff, the ground they were standing on seemed much safer to them. They couldn’t bring themselves to step away from it. End of Vision
The Lord immediately gave several scriptures to further reveal what was shown.
Rev 18:4, “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”
Matthew 7:13-14, Jesus said, “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”
John 3:19-21, “And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
John 12:25-26, “He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also…”
Saints, the Lord is calling His people to come out of this world – NOW – HURRY! Time’s Up!
The fact that the Church is standing at the edge of a cliff shows it’s decision time. You’re either ALL IN, or you’re ALL OUT. Jesus said those practicing TRUTH will come to the LIGHT, but those practicing EVIL HATE the LIGHT and will not come to the Light.
While standing in the midst of the “church” on the cliff, I felt their great fear of walking towards the Light. That’s because there’s SIN IN THE CAMP, and it’s holding the majority back.
The sin manifesting in the group was of fearfulness and idolatry: Fearfulness, because they didn’t trust the Lord to protect and provide for their safety while crossing over; Idolatry, because they trusted more in this world to protect them.
The division I saw between the two camps was stunning; brilliant Light on the one side, and total darkness on the other. Those who stay on the cliff of this world, will remain in total darkness. They who do not heed the warning the Lord’s giving in this crucial hour, will partake of this world’s sins, and be judged and punished accordingly!
Please take this before the Lord in prayer. Let’s humble ourselves before Him, asking that any sin in our lives be exposed to us personally right now, so we may confess it, asking for forgiveness, that the Blood of Jesus may totally cover us!
Brethren, listen again to what Jesus is crying out:
“Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues!”
Then let’s turn and run BOLDLY towards His outstretched arms!
Let’s turn our eyes toward Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, as we let go of this Earth and CLEAVE UNTO HIM!
