Looking Ahead – Sharing Some Things the Lord has Shown Me
Hello Brothers and Sisters, it’s my pleasure to share with you some things the Lord has shown me that I believe He wants to make known to you. In Habakkuk 2:1 it says “I will climb upon my watchtower and see what the Lord says.” From this, and other scriptures, we know that “seeing” is part of God’s voice and seeing dreams and visions is part of the way God speaks. In Job 33:14-16 it says “God may speak in one way, or in another, yet man does not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men while slumbering on their beds, then He opens the ears of men and seals their instruction.” It’s evident from this that the Lord wants us to hear what He is saying through what we see in dreams and visions.
To start off I want to share what the Lord has shown me concerning what He is doing, and will do within His people. Of course this is only part of the story, because according to 1 Corinthians 13:9 we only see in part and know in part. There are things I’m sharing that may or may not pertain to you, so just pray about what you feel the Lord may be speaking to you personally through these revelations.
The Next Move of God Will be the Love of God
On December 1st, 2018 while in prayer about a dream and vision that involved correction, the Holy Spirit said, “The next move of God will be the love of God.” I knew immediately what the Lord meant and the scriptures that go with this word is Hebrews 12:5-14 which speaks about the Lord disciplining those He loves. Brethren, don’t despise the Lords discipline and correction, He disciplines because He loves us and it’s for our own good, that’s a sign you are His son. Take it from someone who has been under the firm hand of the Lord’s discipline for many years now, much fruit comes by way of discipline, as Hebrews 12:11 says, “…all discipline seems painful at the time, not joyful. But later it produces the fruit of peace and righteousness for those trained by it.”
Chastening and discipline is called “sanctification,” it’s how God trains us, and in Hebrews 12:14 it says that without sanctification, no one will see the Lord. You may be saved by grace, but sanctification is a different matter altogether. I speak about sanctification a lot on this YouTube channel, and last year I wrote a book about it called “Reclaiming My Wasteland,” which is on my website.
At the same time the true move of God of the love of God is taking place to discipline and correct His people, the enemy will have a counterfeit move of the love of God that will manifest, be alert to this. This is what the devil does, he counterfeits everything God does in order to confuse, and divide and conquer. I believe Satan’s counterfeit move of love will be like hyper grace on steroids.
You will likely hear teachers of this error say things like, “God loves you just the way you are. He doesn’t expect you to be perfect.” And “God’s not in the business of judging anymore. If Christians are experiencing difficulties and trials, that’s not God, He doesn’t do those things.” And “we must love all people no matter what. God loves the Muslims and Hindu’s and He has made allowances for them.”
Of course God loves people, but the real truth is that “God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16.) The love of God is ALL about Jesus. All this false love is leading right up to a one world religion that is coming together and will be headed up by the false prophet, and this false move of love will put truth loving, Bible believing followers of Jesus Christ right in the crosshairs of persecution. But remember, the Bible says all this is going to happen, so we shouldn’t be surprised or fearful.
The Restoration of Repentance
The next thing I want to share is that Jesus has given me many, many dreams about the restoration of truth concerning the need of repentance in His body. I have seen dysfunctional washing machines and inoperable vacuum cleaners, all these are symbolic of cleansing of sin, or the lack of it. The dysfunction has occurred in large part because of that false doctrine and teaching going around called “hyper-grace.”
This erroneous doctrine teaches that when you become a believer in Christ and confess your sin once, then that’s sufficient, and any more focus on sin is a works salvation. This is a terrible error and will lead many Christians right to hell, which of course is Satan’s intention. We do need to get cleansed of our sins, and do so immediately after we sin. 1 John 1:8-9 says if we say we have no sin we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. But verse 9 says “if we confess our sins, the Lord is faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
If Jesus told the 7 churches of Asia Minor in Revelation chapters 2 and 3 to repent of their sins, then why wouldn’t the church of our time also need to repent? Those churches were part of the church age just as we are still in the church age in our time. And yes, we are also in “the age of grace” but let’s not pervert God’s grace. From what the Lord has shown me, the “hyper-grace” movement has really achieved some traction, and the Lord is going to deal with the damage it has caused in His church.
Crushing the Spirit of Sloth in the Lords Church
The next issue the Lord has been showing me for quite a while now concerns the apathy and cold-heartedness of God’s people toward Him. A very large contingency in the body of Christ is asleep and their love and passion for Christ has grown cold. They have left their first love.
Related to this issue, I first saw a man take a bunch of saltine crackers, which represented the church, and he crushed them in His hand as He was standing in front of a medicine cabinet. From what I have come to understand the Lord will deal with this apathetic spirit in His church through the medicine of removing the prosperity of many. Over-all, the US and many other nations have a strong economy right now going into 2019. In the US we even have more jobs than there are people to fill them. I don’t ever recall a time where this has occurred in my lifetime, and I’m almost 60.
I also saw 5 bears of differing sizes coming and breaking into people’s homes and tearing everything up. A small bear came to me and I grabbed it and gave it to someone (I believe it was Holy Spirit I gave the bear to) and just in time to close the door so the angry mother bear could not come in. The bears represent a judgment of loss. Think about the term “bear market conditions.” This speaks about a downturn in the stock market, which ends up having a ripple effect on the economy, such as a recession, unemployment, inflation, and so on. I believe that’s why there were 5 bears of differing sizes. The Lord was showing me this is going to affect me a little, but to trust Him through it. This is why He shows us these things ahead of time.
The Harvest of the Wheat & Tares
The next thing I want to share concerns the harvest of the wheat and tares, or wheat and weeds. Many Christians, myself included, had incorrectly connected the parable of the wheat and tares in Matthew 13 to the rapture. (Refer to Matthew 13:24-30 and 36-43.) But this parable is not about the rapture, it’s about the harvest at the end of the age, as Jesus explains in verse 39. It’s the same harvest spoken of in James 5:7-8. In verse James 5:7 it’s called the “precious fruit of the earth,” and this is the harvest that clearly occurs before the Lord returns to gather His church. The Lord has repeatedly shown me about the harvest for years, but before the harvest of the wheat, the tares are harvested first and thrown into the fire, and I saw this is going to begin. In Matthew 13:49-50, Jesus says this is how it will be at the end of the age, the angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous, and throw the wicked (who are the sons of the evil one in verse 38) into the furnace of fire where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
The reason the Lord removes the tares, or sons of the evil one from the church first, is because His harvest is precious to Him and He does not want His precious wheat to be perverted by the false doctrines of the devils children- who claim to follow Jesus, but they do not. I hope you all see this.
In the dream about the harvest of the tares, Hugh Jackman represented the tares. He plays a character in the movie X-Men called Wolverine. Well, that’s a wolf, and I understood clearly what the Holy Spirit was showing me. As a further confirmation to this revelation, I saw an article about an upcoming rare ‘super blood moon’ eclipse occurring on January 20th-21st that is called a “wolf moon.” Saints, I could not make this up!
I don’t know exactly what the harvest of the tares is going to look like, I just know it is ahead of us. Pray with me for the Lord’s precious wheat harvest that each one will actually become a disciple instead of merely a convert.
The End of the Messianic Movement
The next thing is the Lord has shown me that as the end of the age is winding down now, many factions and denominations in the church will fall apart and become irrelevant. Refer to Hebrews 12:25-29 that says all of creation will be shaken and removed, so that only unshakable things will remain.
I saw a huge white jet airliner coming in for a landing and it broke apart and crash landed in flames. I was sitting in a car with the Lord as this occurred, which meant He is in control of this. In prayer about what I saw, the Holy Spirit said, “This is the Messianic movement, it is no longer needed.”
I was led to understand the fullness of the gentiles is coming to fruition and the fullness of the “one new man” in Ephesians 3:13-22 is coming to pass. The blindness is falling off Israel and they are coming to faith in Jesus like never before. The truth is, it’s time to make being a follower of Jesus Christ all about Him, and not all the other stuff we have added in.
The Lord Wants to Put Meat on Our Bones
The last thing I want to share is I saw a vision of a very thin, and skinny woman. The Holy Spirit said, I want to put meat on your bones. What He meant comes from the scripture in Jeremiah 33:3 ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’ In the NLT version this scripture reads, ‘Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.’
This is a call to God’s people to press into the Lord because He wants to reveal things to you in His Word. He wants us to see things we have never seen before and receive the weightier things of God and eat the strong meat of the Word. Brothers and Sisters, this is for every one of us! It’s time to grow up and become mature sons of God and be good stewards of the fact that each one of us was chosen to be here at this time to experience the end of the age, which includes the rapture of the church and the second coming of Jesus, and the establishment of His unshakable kingdom in the earth. What an awesome privilege this is! Let’s not squander our opportunity to be overcomers and achieve the destiny the Lord has for each of us.
Let us pray the overcomers prayer:
Dear Heavenly Father,
In the name of Jesus Christ I lift up my brethren to you and ask that you would undertake for each of us to do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. Lord you said we can nothing without You. May you show yourself strong in our lives and compel us to seek you in a deeper way so we may be conformed to the image of Christ and become the overcomers you are calling us to be. Help us to crucify our “self-life” and let Christ Jesus live through us. Lord this is not something we can do in our flesh, so Holy Spirit have your way, and God grant us the grace.
Father, if we can’t function and be effective as disciples and a body of believers in this life, then how will we qualify to rule and reign with Christ in His Kingdom? Lord give us a servant’s heart and the endurance we need to finish our race strong! When we are weary, carry us, and when we are discouraged, help us to rejoice always no matter the circumstances.
Help us to be doers of your Word and to perfect the Word of God in our lives. Lord you are our life, bring us into alignment with your thoughts and ways and perfect will. Help us to be a people who purifies ourselves and may we realize we are in training to rule and reign with you. Help us to see what you are doing through everyone and everything we encounter on a daily basis to sanctify us.
Thank You Lord for all You have done to help us mature as a people of your heart.
In Jesus name I pray, Amen
Much Love in Christ, Sarah
