The evening of February 9th, I received the following Word/vision during a time of prayer with a close friend. I’d been feeling like there was something urgent the Lord wanted to show me for a couple of days.
After praying for some time, the Lord said:
“Do not be afraid to speak My Truth; I will confirm the Word, and you will do exploits!”
Suddenly, in an open vision, I was moving through the streets of a heavily populated city. It was dark, and I seemed to be in the downtown area. I can’t say which city, because I was only looking down at the streets. The streets were filled with blood! The blood was at least a few inches deep. A gigantic mop was swishing back and forth through the streets, like it was cleaning up the mess. I heard the Lord say:
“I have to cleanse the land. Blood covers this land.”
I began to see faces and bodies. They were covered in blood. Some were screaming for help; others were face down in the blood. The Lord impressed upon me that some of the dead will be people we know. I won’t describe the rest of what I saw, but it was like a massacre had taken place. And then He said,
“The land must be cleansed. Much blood has been shed. You MUST trust Me in this. I Am a Righteous Judge.”
“Your eyes will soon see horrors beyond your comprehension. But do not be distracted. Keep your eyes on Me alone. Do not look to the right hand or to the left.”
“Do not hesitate to say what I tell you to say, and do what I tell you to do, for I will speak and do through you.”
“Some, you will pull out of the fire; some you will raise from the dead; and others you will extend your hand for healing and restoration. I will show you which ones.”
Afterward, being shaken by what was seen and heard, we just sat in His presence for a while. We then began to sing quietly, praising Him for His great mercy in showing His people the things that are coming.
As we sat praising Him, we saw Jesus in the spirit, standing in front of us. He drew us close, then took what seemed like a blanket or cloak, and spread it over our bodies. We were totally covered and felt the weight of the cloak covering us in real time. End of vision.
The scenes in the vision were horrific. Whenever I’ve seen anything like this in the movies, I’ve always closed my eyes to block out the images. But there was no blocking this. It didn’t matter whether my eyes were opened or closed, the vision continued.
The Lord showed me; in His mercy, He wants us prepared for what’s coming. Psalm 91 was written for our day and will play out before us,
“…A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked…”
The Lord is telling us the land must be cleansed, because much blood has been shed. He says WE MUST TRUST HIM IN THIS!
“For the LORD comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; the earth will also disclose her blood, and will no more cover her slain.” Isaiah 26:21
“…The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold…” Psalms 19:9-10
“I know, O LORD, that your judgments are right…”
Saints, our physical eyes will see things that we must not dwell on. We have to have total trust that our God knows what needs to be done – no matter what it is! We’ll need to walk totally by faith – and not by sight. ll Cor. 5:7
“…but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.” Daniel 11:32
This is the calling of the Church, those who know their God. We will be strong, carrying out great exploits in His Name. The Lord will show Himself strong, bringing much Glory and Honor to His Name.
The Lord says, “Some, you will pull out of the fire; some, you will raise from the dead; and others you will extend your hand for healing and restoration. I will show you which ones.”
A mighty work will be done by the Lord, resulting in the greatest harvest of souls in history. He will do this work through His Body on the earth.
After showing the vision, the Lord gathered us close, then covered us with His cloak. I cannot adequately describe the intense peace and calm that came over us. He showed me afterwards; without His covering, no man will stand. With His covering, wave after wave of His Glory will be imparted between the “birth pains.” (see ‘The Birth Pains Will Soon Begin.’)
The last thing the Lord stressed to me was that we need to meditate and spend much time in prayer about these things, so He can prepare our hearts.
Please take this before the Lord. Ask Him to prepare you for the days ahead.
