Some weeks back I wrote a post in which I shared that my daughter has been caring for a horse named Midnight. I related this to a message I had read in a prophetic book during the same period of time that said we are now at the midnight hour. I would like to add a further witness to this that has been repeated twice recently. I sense that the Spirit is seeking to tell His people to be alert and ready, for there are things soon to occur that will be very calamitous and will cause many men’s hearts to fail.
About two weeks ago, when I was camping in Perry, Georgia, my friend Randy Simmons called me at 10:30 P.M. to tell me that the Lord had just spoken to him. Randy never calls me this late as he does not know what time I might have gone to bed, so I knew he had something of importance to share.
Randy had been experiencing some frustration as it seemed that no one he had been speaking to concerning the lateness of the hour and the impending judgment of America was taking him seriously. People were continuing on with their plans as if nothing evil had been forecast and life would continue on without interruption for many more years.
Randy went into his room and began voicing his thoughts to the Lord, and was led to get his Bible. When he opened it up it fell open to Ezekiel chapter 12, and he began reading there. I will quote the passage from which he was reading, highlighting those statements that stood out to Randy.
Moreover, the word of Yahweh came to me saying, "Son of man, eat your bread with trembling, and drink your water with quivering and anxiety. Then say to the people of the land, 'Thus says Yahweh God concerning the inhabitants of Jerusalem in the land of Israel,’ They will eat their bread with anxiety and drink their water with horror, because their land will be stripped of its fulness on account of the violence of all who live in it. And the inhabited cities will be laid waste, and the land will be a desolation. So you will know that I am Yahweh.”
Then the word of Yahweh came to me saying, "Son of man, what is this proverb you people have concerning the land of Israel, saying, 'The days are long and every vision fails'? Therefore say to them, 'Thus says Yahweh God,’ I will make this proverb cease so that they will no longer use it as a proverb in Israel. But tell them, ‘The days draw near as well as the fulfillment of every vision.’ For there will no longer be any false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel. For I Yahweh shall speak, and whatever word I speak will be performed. It will no longer be delayed, for in your days, O rebellious house, I shall speak the word and perform it,” declares Yawheh God.
Furthermore, the word of Yahweh came to me saying, "Son of man, behold, the house of Israel is saying, 'The vision that he sees is for many years from now, and he prophesies of times far off.' Therefore say to them, 'Thus saysYahweh God, None of My words will be delayed any longer. Whatever word I speak will be performed,’” declares Yahweh God.
When Randy called me that night, he testified that he knew the Spirit of Christ had spoken to him through this passage, and that he believed we would see the things prophesied come to pass soon.
Two weeks later Randy and I were both on Jekyll Island. We had set-up camp, as I mentioned in the previous post titled Tent-Dwellers. It was October 2nd, and the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) was set to begin that night at sunset. Randy had once again experienced some frustration over the delays of God and had been questioning again how soon the prophesied events might occur.
Earlier in the day I had downloaded a broadcast from TruNews. Rick Wiles was interviewing Nathan Leal, Augusto Perez and Vaughn Clark. If you have not heard it, you can find it here:
I had not listened to it, and asked Randy if he would like to hear it. We sat outside in our campsite and listened to the broadcast. About halfway through the broadcast Augusto Perez shared of a prophetic experience he had three years ago. He said he was at home and was about to retire for the night. He walked into a room where the news was being broadcast on the television. As he entered the broadcaster said, “Do you know what time it is?” Augusto said he was about to turn the television off, but heard the broadcaster say, “It is 12:20 A.M..”
As soon as he turned the television off he looked at his watch and it was 12:20. At that moment the Spirit repeated the question to him. The Spirit of Christ said, “Do you know what time it is? It is 12:20.” The Scripture from Ezekiel 12:20-28 then came into Augusto Perez’s mind.
Upon first mentioning this event, Augusto Perez said he didn’t have time to read the passage, but a few minutes later he came back on and read Ezekiel 12:20-28. A few minutes after this Vaughn Clark came on the broadcast and asked Augusto for the Scripture reference again. In this way it was mentioned three times.
As Randy and I sat listening to the broadcast, the event from two weeks earlier came to mind. Randy mentioned it before Augusto Perez even spoke of the Scripture. When the precise passage was mentioned that God had led Randy to, he became excited about it, and reaffirmed that he knew that the Lord had spoken this passage to him.
12:20 is part of the midnight hour. The Spirit is testifying that the things that have been prophesied for the nations are at hand. The judgments will no longer delay. It is a time to be alert and to get one’s house in order.
This morning I received an e-mail from Kathy Furman. She related to me a dream that her husband Randy had last night.
Randy woke this morning with the verse from Isaiah 3:4 “And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.”
The word translated babes only occurs twice in Scripture according to Strongs. It is H8586
From H5953; caprice (as a fit coming on), that is, vexation; concretely a tyrant: - babe, delusion.
The other time it is used is in Isaiah 66:4. Here it is translated as delusions. “I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil be fore mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.”
In the dream, Randy spoke to Obama who invited him to a large party this weekend. The people throwing the party knew that it would be their last one because the government was broke. Randy remembers that he knew emphatically that he would not be going to the party. He remembers that he said something like “important things (but with the concept of secretive) always happen on the weekends.” This conversation took place in an area of dark alleys. The walls were glistening as if it had been raining. Randy left and went upstairs to a room where his sister Tina and I were. He told his sister to take money out of the bank. She said she already had. And he said “Take out more.”
Randy also remembers another portion of a dream that probably took place after that, but he felt was connected to the first. He dreamt that it was a beautiful, warm sunny day but people were complaining that it was cold. Randy said he was saying, “Glorious day, gorgeous day.” (I told him that reminded me of the verse that says the day of the Lord is darkness and not light. For Randy it was warm and sunny but for the others it was cold.)
Randy is not saying that something is going to happen this weekend. He just sees this as a warning to be aware of the days in which we are now walking.
It is apparent from these things that the Father would advise His children to not grow weary of their waiting. The Spirit has been testifying for many years that judgment is coming to the nation. I began chronicling these warning on 9-11-2001. For a list of some of the significant signs and warnings the Spirit has given during that period, see the post A Chronology of Events.
Yahweh is patient with His people. He gives men and women time for repentance. Yet when the people of God and the nations show no interest in turning from their sin, but choose to engage in further transgressions without shame, the judgment will surely come.
“And I gave her time to repent; and she does not want to repent of her immorality. Behold, I will cast her upon a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation...”
The Spirit is testifying that the hour of judgment is no longer far off. Let no man or woman say that it is for a later time. Do not be deceived in thinking that you will not observe this great tribulation in your days. Judgment has been spoken, and Yahweh’s word will be fulfilled.
