This is what I began writing as I was listening to the Lord:
I can feel something is about to take place. A major, life-changing event; one that requires immediate, personal preparation. Be on the lookout. I can sense a call, but not for myself, for all Believers to arise up suddenly. They will arise up suddenly at once. Only those that have ears to hear are hearing the same. They know the same thing is coming. They will not rise up of their own accord, but they will arise up on My accord, when I do it in them. Like when the Israelites in the desert did when they heard the sound – the certain sound of the trumpet. There was no mistaking it.
I keep hearing, “Keep yourself clean, pure, and keep the watch. Do not set any wicked thing before your eyes”.
Only the ready will be ready and rise up suddenly. I can feel it, and its gaining strength. The way has been long but worth it.
“My people have reached exhausted levels. It is purification time. It is time to wash, bathe, clean your temples from within.
What will happen will happen very fast and without any warning. It will take everyone by surprise. Many faces will be shocked. The faces of millions will become pale from shock. The shock will be so great they will not be able to come out of it for a long time.
However, My people will arrive safely on shores of home, safely upon the Mount. I see many regrets passing upon the hearts of many of My people; but, where you are going, regret does not exist. I am preparing you in areas you are not able to prepare yourselves.
I am separating the sheep and the cattle; the brown, speckled and rings raked from the white and blemish free. It is only Me that can do it. I am doing it now, last minute. I will do it the last minutes before the complete and final hour because it is the last and final hour. My people will feel it in their hearts. They will know the time. It will be Me doing it within them. Those that know Me will know the difference”.
I was receiving a waking vision as the Lord spoke to me and this is what I saw:
As the Lord was speaking, I had a waking vision. I saw myself standing on a cliff overlooking a vast valley. Spread along the entire valley as far as I could see were white tents. On the outside of every tent, were people taking down their tents and rolling them up.
I then heard the Lord say to me, “It is time to begin taking down your tents and rolling them up and preparing”.
Back to the word…
“Those that do not know Me will not be aware of it the way those that know Me will. Those that do know Me will know it beyond any shadow of doubt. I need them to know it this way. Those they live with, or near to, will not be able to know it like them (the saved). Yet, they will confess that they know something is happening. All flesh will sense it.
This separating will not be visible to those that do not know Me because it will be from within each person, in the spirit. Yet, the wicked and the unsaved will see a change and not be able to explain it.
Those that have been hearing the warnings and call to prepare for a very long time will not do so. Even those that remotely sense it from within, pass it off as nothing to be concerned about.
They expect Me to do everything for them, even preparing for them where they should be doing it themselves. It is “The Bride that makes herself ready”, not the Bridegroom. They refuse to do their part.
In fact, that is how they have chosen to live their entire lives in Me. Then, finally at the end, they are far from any ability to prepare for the final moments because they never spent any time preparing at all.
Because of the suddenness, severity, and shock, they will all be fully consumed with horror in a moment’s time. A horror so real, so stark, and great, they will be paralyzed much the same way as Lot’s wife.
They will grieve. They will mourn. I am coming to take back what belongs to Me and who belongs to Me”.
The Lord is directing this to the wicked of this world:
“I have left them (the Righteous) here for the benefit of you (the lost world). However, I will not leave them here much longer, not much longer for your benefit. For you see, whether or not you believe it, this world benefits from my loved ones being among you; though they are like sheep constantly surrounded by venomous snakes, ravenous wolves, thieves and murderers, who would gladly take away their lives in a moment if I let them.
Their time to do so will be soon. It is soon. It will not be prolonged. Even the least among My sheep, even the smallest, the weakest saints among the wicked people of this world benefit from the existence of the righteous woven among them.
The judgment of the wicked is prolonged because of the righteous that live among them. They (the Saved), take your cursing, mocking, ridicule, and blasphemy because of My mercy for you. I died as much for you as I did for them (the saved). But, they will be your judges on that Day and you will remember them – you will remember everything. Even their prayers will be brought up before you as your accusers, and none will be able to stand.
The rotten stench of this world has risen up before Me and I cannot stand it. Not much more can be done. I am near and you will know it – you who are wicked and you who are righteous.
Many ask why and how I can watch in silence at the wicked and most perverse things in the earth and not rise up at once and devour those who violently rage against Me. It is because I wait. I wait because there are many wicked among the righteous that will come in all at once towards the very end, right before I severe the wicked from the righteous.
The light of this world will be snuffed out like the flame of a candle that has almost no wax left.
When I do this, even many of the wickedest will know I have done this. That is was Me that did it, though they cursed and blasphemed Me through the years. They knew Me all along and they will know it is Me more than those who served Me with their mouths.
It will be the horror of many of those that believed they were saved and were not – much more than the wickedest who will be saved after all. Those that will come to Me after sudden destruction will not be those who professed Me with their mouths and cursed inwardly, but those that cursed Me with their mouths outwardly only to confess Me inwardly as Savior and Lord.
This will cause those that took their so-called righteousness for granted and flaunted it before the unrighteous, to gnash their teeth at the wicked who will come to Me for their salvation.
The righteousness of the wicked will torment the so-called righteous and drive them further away than the wicked were in their worst wickedness.
The so-called righteous will curse Me more than the newfound last minute, grateful, new Believer that were Satan’s Masterpieces of hell.
Once the door is shut, for it is almost surely shut, the inhabitants of this world will furiously beat upon My door much the same way they did upon the door of the Ark. However, I will not listen to them even though they will howl and cut themselves… The silence they will be met with will torment them more than the blasting noise of hell that will never end”.
