I will start this post off by revisiting 2 dreams I’ve had a few years back.
I had a dream 02/10/2014 and in this dream I was in some kind of meeting in a church. We were all sitting at tables. In the dream there was a pastor, who I recognized, talking and passing out cards each having a word on it which we were supposed to give a definition for. I do not remember the word I was given, however, I do remember that it had to do with food and I remembered a dream I had back in April of 2011.
Here is the dream from 2011
I had a very frightening dream Monday, April 25, 2011 and the Lord basically told my wife the same thing the following morning. In my dream, I was in a very large grocery store, something like a Costco, and there was an overabundance of food everywhere the eye could see. And then I felt the Lord say that there is a very severe famine coming that will test the faith of all believers.If you remember the 70′s when Gas was rationed and you had to go get gas on the day assigned to you according to your license plate number so will it be in this famine. Money will not be in short supply, food will. Many believers’ stomachs rather than their faith will dictate their actions in this time. This I believe is how the mark will take hold. Money is not the issue here. If you remember in revelation no one could buy or sell without the mark When the shelves are empty, we must realize that God, and not our money or jobs is our ultimate provider. I believe that right now is a time of abundance but as in Pharaoh’s dream that Joseph Interpreted for him, there were years of abundance followed by years of famine in which the abundance was quickly forgotten.This is why the house church is so important.
Acts 2 will begin to play out here, i believe.
All the believers kept meeting together, and they shared everything with each other. From time to time, they sold their property and other possessions and distributed the money to anyone who needed it. The believers had a single purpose and went to the temple every day. They were joyful and humble as they ate at each others homes and shared their food.
When I was done sharing this dream, the pastor looked very uncomfortable and wished that I had never said anything. I find that it’s no coincidence that I was given a card with a word having to do with food on it. I also find that being that the dream was repeated a second time means that there is a sense of urgency to it and a warning that should be headed.
Vision from 09/22/2015
I have seen this vision for approximately 2 days now so I am going to post it now. In the vision, 09/22/2015, I saw a checkout line in a grocery store. This in and of itself is no big deal. However, what I see beyond that is. Like I said, I saw people standing in line waiting to purchase groceries but they were not doing so with credit cards, debit cards, or cash. They were waving the back of their right hand over a scanner in order to pay for their groceries. In addition, I saw military personnel with machine guns present as watching over what was going on. It almost seemed like a ration line you would see in a soup kitchen except that this was a store and groceries were being purchased. However, it could too mean that the food supply was being controlled and it was being rationed. It is no coincidence that this was a grocery store in the vision as food is a basic necessity and one where, if you were not a Christian and did not know God as your provider, you would think nothing of getting the mark.
The fact that I had the first dream twice is significant and the vision I was shown afterwards that followed the second dream reinforces the severity of first 2 dreams as I feel this is coming soon.
Many believers have the belief that the rapture will occur before any tribulation comes. However, what I have been seeing just doesn’t jive with that belief.
2 Thessalonians 2:3
Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,
To reiterate, 2 Thessalonians says that the Rapture will not come until:
- There is a great falling away.
- The antichrist is revealed
As for the falling away is concerned Jesus said the following :
Mat 24:9 — Mat 24:12
“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.
Jesus said, “And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.”
When did Jesus say this? It was after John the Baptist was thrown into prison and then sent his disciples to ask whether or not He, Jesus, was the Christ. Why? Jesus had it within His power to deliver John from prison but for reasons known only to Jesus chose not to.
In the first dream I was told of a coming famine. It is a hard thing to imagine when your stomach is full and you are not starving for the lack thereof. However, it is quite something different when it has been days or even weeks and you have had nothing to eat. What will you do, be offended at the Lord and give up your faith?
Rev 13:7 says that the beast was granted authority to make war with the saints and to overcome them
It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.
Will you be offended if Jesus didn’t come to your rescue ?
Will you listen to the voice of the false prophets who Jesus said would come because they preach a smooth message of lies which will lead one into taking the mark and think he/she has done nothing wrong?
Will you be like Easu and sell your eternal soul and inheritance for a morsel of bread because you were lead by your stomach instead of your faith? Those who have the false notion that God understands if they take the mark to satisfy their needs let me say emphatically, NO HE DOES NOT.
Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright. For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears.
One Morsel of bread cost him his inheritance. Think about that when the dream I had about a coming famine comes to pass. Is taking the mark in order to satisfy your hunger worth spending eternity in torment?
Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name
There is no repentance for those who take the mark just like there was no repentance for Esau after selling his birthright for a morsel of bread.
If you look at the progression of events you have the following:
You have the seven seals as mentioned in Revelation 6:1 – 8:1
Next you have the 7 trumpets Rev 8:2 – 11:15
Next you have the woman, the child, and the dragon with the Dragon being ultimately being thrown out of heaven along with his fallen angels and a key given to believers on earth as to how to defeat the dragon, the beast and the false prophet in Revelation 12:11
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
The great falling away happens and the man of sin is revealed 2 Thessalonians 2:3
The beast is given power to make war with believers and to overcome them Revelation 12:7
The false prophet is granted power to give breath to the image of the beast and cause those who refuse to worship it to be killed. It also states that he cause all to receive a mark on their right hand or forehead and no one can buy or sell without the mark. Revelation 13:15-18 This takes me back to the subject of food which the dream and vision I had were about. If you can’t buy food how will you and your family survive? What if you had to watch your family starve to death along with yourself and you were offered food if you and your family would only consent to taking the mark. Would you hold fast to God’s Word of warning against taking it?
Rev 14:9-11 says the following:
Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
Revelation 14:12 says something very interesting after giving this warning.
Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
Matt 24:12 says
But he who endures to the end shall be saved.
In Revelation 14:14 Jesus comes with the clouds and reaps the earth’s harvest.This I believe to be the rapture but not every believer will be raptured; remember the parable of the wise and foolish virgins.
Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
1 Thessalonians 5:9 says the following:
For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ
I have heard this passage of scripture used by Christians to mean that we will not experience any tribulation but will be instead whisked away by Jesus. What I read says different. After the rapture it speaks about the wrath of God in the 7 bowls
In Revelation 16:1-7 we now see the bowls of wrath. Up to this point from my observations there were judgements which are used by the Lord to bring people to repentance. Afterwards you God’s wrath being poured out on those who have taken the mark and those believers who were left behind.
I would encourage everyone reading this to prepare now while you have time. Be spending time with the Lord in prayer,fasting and worship and reading the Word so that your lamps are full with oil to spare.
Luk 21:34 — Luk 21:36
The Importance of Watching
“But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
