I believe the Lord has shown me that a storm of great consequence is coming to the nations. A series of catastrophes that will feed terror in the hearts of people. I see the rolling tempest threatening shores and fields and the foundations of the earth trembling beneath the feet of men. I see the dread of men causing hearts to grow faint. This is a season of woe. The earth and creation can no longer sustain order in the face of the darkness that now covers it.
What shall the church do? How can she be prepared? Has her lamps become empty void of any light at His coming? Has she vacated her station only to be absent in the time of great consequence? Has her ministry of reconciliation become silenced in the season of judgment? Will the King find His bride asleep at the gate with the slumber of impatience when He returns to receive her? When the earth begins to reel in pain will the church quicken to her feet and receive what the nations will give up. It’s time to awaken! It’s time to prepare! Stand at the gate for the nations are coming with their sons and daughters. Light your lamp for darkness has hidden the way of salvation. Creation cannot sustain itself it earns for the sons of God to be revealed. The earth is manifesting its woe. It’s time for the church to manifest His glory.
The voice of Issachar’s sons (1Chronicles 12:32)
