rev2-4-5

I’ve been wondering if I should say something for the longest time. You may have noticed that I’ve been absent from blogging and social media in general for a long time. Thing is, I’ve been battling my own demons…..and I’ve not won yet. But hope prevails.

Now, tonight, in the shadow of a dark moon, I feel compelled to voice my opinion on a subject that has really gripped my fascination for the longest time. Ever since childhood I’ve been haunted by dreams about it, have I heard tall tales about it, things that frightened me so that I literally curled up in a bundle and covered my ears with my hands. The thing that frightened me, friends, was nothing other than the rapture and eventual return of Jesus Christ.

I remember those dark nights in church, the pastor’s booming voice, warning us of the terrors and the horrors that’s to come. I couldn’t understand that a kind God, a forgiving God, could be so cruel as to strike fear the hearts of the people His own Son saved.

These days we look at the world and wonder.

Tonight I read something about a cloud of depression hanging over the world…and it suddenly dawned on me; this is what is happening to us. We are being pulled into a dark pit of despair and then, at last, the release will come from above…but the release will be a terrible thing, as you who’ve seen the signs may know. Now, I’m not going to try and scare you, please, don’t ever think that! What I’m trying to tell is that you can still save yourself!

Yes, the horrors will come…..the San Andreas vault will finally give up the ghost and make California the next Atlantis, there will be volcano’s and floods…have been for years, in fact. There will be fire in the sky, there will be an upsurge of paranormal events, supernatural stuff that we normal people will refuse to accept or understand. I’m waiting for this, because I believe it is indeed upon us and I’m not saying this because I believe every computer animated cloud in the sky or weird trumpet sounds or warnings of a meteor strike on fake news bulletins…I don’t. I take that kind of information with an entire vault filled with salt…some of it may be authentic, but there are many charlatans out there that, for some sick reason, like to strike the fear of God in us. I’m also not saying that I’ve received a visitation and am about to bring a divine message from an angel or the holy Mother; that is NOT my intention with this. It is just a feeling I have…a feeling I’ve been having for the longest time and I will honestly be the first to admit that I may just be depressed or paranoid, whichever is your poison.

Tonight, friends, and few readers, I’m just reaching out to you in an honest way about this instinctive feeling. I feel compelled to share it, hence this crazy babbling (again…but you know me to be a babbler, anyway).

Now, everyone who has internet has seen the videos on YouTube, heard the trumpet sounds, saw the strange cloud formations, the lights falling from the sky. You’ve all heard about the warning of a devastating earthquake in the US and I’m sure you’ve seen the one of the strange clouds over Jerusalem. I don’t think we should concern ourselves with any of that. This feeling I have is stronger than any of those so-called signs and warnings may be. It’s been growing since childhood, as I mentioned already, and it is consuming me. When I read about the concerns of a stranger about the reign of depression across the world it got me thinking. And it spurred me into action…

The point is that my gut is telling me we are nearing the end of something, but also the beginning of something else. It is going to be big. I am not sure what it is, just as I’m not sure that the interpretations we have of Revelation, that of a human, what he thought he saw and have been believed by thousands, is fact…we cannot be sure. But, like I said to my husband this evening, I am NOT taking chances. It is my jobs to tell you that you have to be ready, get cracking friends and neighbors and turn your back on whatever you think is important in this world NOW and reach deep inside yourself, find your spirit and revive it, because the future is looking bleak for those of us who are unprepared. This battle is NOT going to be a physical one; it is already here, by the way, remember the talk about the cloud of depression? The world is being attacked by something we cannot kill with guns and knives and bombs….we are now quickly becoming our own enemies! I’ve suffered from depression for nearly 30 years, but never has it been so common, so devastating as it is now. People use drugs and alcohol to make them feel better, they use other vices; sex, murder, whatever floats them through their terrible days. I hear people saying ALL THE TIME that they cannot do this anymore. Life is becoming unbearable and NOT because of the economy or war or famine, or whatever…because they just feel so terribly down! Listen to this:

Luke 21:34-36

“But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

Are you strong enough to fight against this terrible cloud descending upon us? Can you imagine how you would feel if all these predictions of earthquakes, floods, and other horrors come true? You will NOT be able to withstand the emotional strain! You will fall!! And THAT is exactly what the evil of the world wants us to do! The devil has been hiding in plain sight, right here, amongst us, watching and waiting like the rest of us. He has pounced and this is the result. Increase in alcoholism, drug abuse, child abuse, poverty, racism, hatred, criminal activity, murder, war, famine…the world is a mess and we are the victims of a spiritual battle which, by the way, we are LOOSING! It is time to wake up, people, NOT because of the YouTube channels that so busily testify of signs and warnings and images in the sky, NOT because of politicians who threaten economic downfall, NOT because of our own depression…that especially is NO EXCUSE!! We need to stand up for what our spirits believe NOW!! Take your stand, make your choice today, because I have a feeling our time is indeed short.

I’m speaking NOT as a prophet or a medium or any other spiritualistic, religious person; I’m speaking as myself, I’m sharing what I FEEL IN MY HEART…we need to take stock of our lives, we need to make peace, beg forgiveness and RETURN TO GOD TODAY!! Why this urgency? Truth is, there may not be a tomorrow…seriously.

What are you going to do? Make fun of me, perhaps? You are welcome. Criticize me…do that…I’m not a writer, nor a pastor, what do I know? I’m a silly housewife from a long-forgotten country at the far end of the darkest continent on the planet. My life means nothing…..so go ahead, make fun, have your laugh, just know this…I felt that I HAD to share this with you. You can do with it what you like.

rev-2-5-describe

Just a final word, friends…don’t say you were NOT warned, stop making excuses…this is YOUR responsibility, YOUR decision and, ultimately, YOUR life (or death). Don’t be deceived….I hope to see you all soon.

I am re-reading an old favourite…Rebecca Brown’s controversial book ‘’He came to set the Captives free” [Whitaker House, 1986: ISBN: 0-88368-323-7]. I’ve heard many comments, some not very kind, about this book. I’ve wondered about this….why are people so reluctant to believe that what she is writing is, in fact, the truth. Has Hollywood managed to sensationalize Satan so much that we see it all through a veil of special effects?

I do SO have shocking news for you…..the devil is REAL and he is quite busy these days. We have all been lulled into thinking that he exists only in the dream world created by directors and producers of blockbusters. Why do you think movies like ‘’The Passion of Christ’’ and just recently the Nicolas Cage-movie ‘’Left Behind’’ got such bad reviews….people do not believe anymore. Not in the devil, nor in God. We laugh and giggle at the ‘’crazies’’ that obsess about the end-time prophecies, and instead of taking it all serious, we just get on with business as usual; cheating, fighting, professing our commitment to Mammon.

A friend of mine once said that the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to have people NOT believe in his existence. That way he can secretly enter your life, without you suspecting a single thing and, if you don’t believe in God, you will not be able to open your mind to the signs or read the warnings in the Bible.

It has become my mission in life to openly declare the name of the Lord and to see that people read about what He has done, not only for me, but for many other people. I want you, friends, to share your testimony with me, so that I, in turn, can spread the word and bring change to the people of this earth. For me, this is the only way to live, the only way that we, as human beings, can save ourselves and this planet from certain death. It is NOT impossible. Yes, the devil is doing his work, why do you think the world is constantly at war? Why do you think the economy is failing? But God can still step in and change things for us. All is NOT lost.

Here is what you should do: Matthew 11:15 and 25:15Whoever has ears let them hear… 25At that time Jesus said, ‘I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children…’’ [BibleGateway]

Open your eyes and ears, see, listen….look at your own life. Be honest with yourself for a change. Be the child you once was, pure, honest, direct, even if the words hurt, say it, notice the flaws. Do you see the work of the devil in your life? Have you sold your soul to him? If you are well-to-do and you reach out to the poor, for instance, do you do it so that others can think you are a good person? Or do you do it so that the poor can share in your abundance without even considering the fact that you may or may not impress others? Are you honest and truthful or are you stabbing your ‘’friends’’ in the back? Do you speak evil of others? And then turn around and kiss them on the cheek, like a typical Pharisee? Is your conscience clear? Do you care at all about where you will be going once you die? Do you realise you have a choice?

In Brown’s book, she talks about Elaine, a girl who became a high priestess in a Satanic Cult and eventually found her way back to God. If she could do it, friend, so can you…no one is ever too lost. And yes, you may think I’m a silly woman, believing a tall tale told by a person, intent upon scaring people and making loads of money with her book sales to boot. Some of the things in her book sound a bit far-fetched, I agree….but then, we let our kids watch animated movies about fairytale princesses and goblins and ghouls, we get lost in a world where we believe that money and power are the answer to everything. You even believe that driving a fancy car will secure your social standing and living in an upmarket area will ensure that people think you are ‘’rich’’.  The world we have managed to create for ourselves is a fantasy! Living in a mansion doesn’t make one happy or give peace to your soul, does it?

The time has come for us to be harsh on ourselves, to inspect our own hearts carefully and honestly. God already knows your intentions, He knows your heart, but He wants you to see it for yourself, He wants you to admit that you lived your life in sin, in vain, making your deals with the devil. Please give Him the opportunity to save you and give you that one thing that money cannot buy, eternal peace. Job 22:21: ‘Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you.’’ [BibleGateway]

You are NOT too lost, to be found; you are not too sinful to be saved….make the choice now, while you still can, because, friends, I do have a feeling that time is short. This world is unravelling as we speak and soon, much sooner than we can imagine, I suspect we are going to witness the end of it all. Psalm 85:8: ‘I will listen to what God the Lord says; he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants..’ [BibleGateway]

Over the past few weeks you’ve read many stories about my own personal struggles with faith. You’ve seen how hopeless and desperate I got and you’ve also read my admittance that I was wandering, like John, in the wilderness. Things were (and still continue to) be bad for me, for our family. It seems that EVERYTHING is going wrong. I’ve not been well for a long time, physically, and I’m so tired of struggling, not only with my health, but with all the challenges of day to day life. Every day is worse than the one before and I cannot remember the last time I’ve been really happy. The face I put on for others are not the real me, it is simply a mask I hide behind, so that others cannot see my worries and cares. But, yes there is always a BUT, even so, even with life being what it is at the moment, I’ve found my peace. Since I’ve made the decision to hand over all my problems and worries to God, to have Jesus deal with it, I’ve been feeling better about my life. It’s still not perfect, but at least now I’ve found my purpose again, I’ve found my way….and I’m NOT depressed about what happens to me anymore. I’m going through this so that  I can now stand before the world and tell them that God is real, that He saved me from falling down into the well of deep, dark depression (where I’ve found myself so often in the past). He is the solution and, no matter what happens, He will carry me through. He will reach down and draw me ‘out of deep waters’: Psalm 18:19: ‘He reached down from on high and took hold of me; He drew me out of deep waters.’ [AliveToGod]

I cannot put in words the peace in my soul, the wondrous calm that has overtaken me….I still know life is challenging, I understand that things may still go wrong, but with God in charge of my life, I need not worry so much, because all will be well and through my perseverance, His name will be praised. James 1:2-4: “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” [GotQuestions]

 In reading about the deliverance of Elaine and how caught she was in the cult, how desperate she was in the end to be set free and how she was, eventually, saved from bondage, and I believe that there is hope for all mankind. You may be lost, you may not even know it…you may think that all is well and that you are living your dream life….yet, you may feel something is missing. The thing is, friend, we are all living in captivity and only God can set us free. Galatians 5:1: ‘’It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to the yoke of slavery…’’ [BibleHub] John 8:32 and 36: ‘’32Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free…36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.’’ [BibleHub]
