THE SECOND VISION THE LORD SHOWED ME: “OUT OF CHAOS”
PART 4 OF 5
THE SECOND VISION – I saw in this vision a great BLACKOUT. The blackness was widespread, how far, I cannot say, but millions were without POWER AND LIGHT. There was nothing OPERATIONAL. This BLACKOUT happened without WARNING. People were in a PANIC trying seek help, but they were unable to get any help. Everything the people relied on to survive was not working and not accessible. Everywhere the people turned to get help, there was no HELP. The nation was in a state of CONFUSION and UTTER CHAOS. The Lord began to speak in heart in the MIDST of the CHAOS. He said: “Remind the people AGAIN what I told to you to WARN them about before in Isaiah 3:1-5
“Now the Lord, the Almighty Lord, is about to take away from Jerusalem and Judah everything that the people depend on. He is going to take away their food, and their water, their heroes and their soldiers, their judges and their prophets, their fortunetellers and their statesmen, their military; and civilian leaders, their politicians and everyone who uses magic to control events. The Lord let the people be governed by immature boys. Everyone will take advantage of everyone else. Young people will not respect their elders, and worthless people will not respect their superiors.”
All HUMAN RESOURCES were searched for in vain. There was rioting in the streets EVERYWHERE! The national and local authorities were unable to contain the CHAOS because of the BLACKOUT. The people had no one to BRING ORDER to the AFFECTED areas during this time of CALAMITY. The wicked were VIOLATING THE LAW AND ABUSING THE CITIZENS causing many casualties. It is written is Ezekiel 7: 23, 25 & 26:
“Everything is in confusion – the land is full of murders and the cities are full of violence…Despair is coming. You will look for peace and never find it. One disaster will follow another, and a steady stream of bad news will pour in. You will beg the PROPHETS to reveal what they FORESEE. The priest will have NOTHING to teach the people, and the elders will have no advice to give…”
During this time of UTTER CHAOS, I saw bright LIGHTS resembling STARS in the SKY, BUT THESE LIGHTS WERE not at the same distance as the STARS. However, as far my eyes could see, I saw specks of LIGHT that I could not count. The Lord allowed me to SEE into the glowing light, In the LIGHT I saw the RIGHTEOUS IN CHRIST on their knees PRAYING FOR GOD to bring JUDGMENT upon the nation. They were PRAYING for God to come and GLORIFY HIMSELF, so that wicked would know that HE IS!! They were PRAYING for a REPENTIVE and REMORSEFUL nation. The RIGHTEOUS NEVER STOP PRAYING during the BLACKOUT, They were weary of UNREPENTIVE SINS and they were calling for the Lord’s INTERCESSION. It was not STARS that I was seeing, it was the LIGHT OF GOD shining THROUGH those who were praying. The RIGHTEOUS was the LIGHT in the BLACKOUT. The RIGHTEOUS did not PANIC and they did not join in with the RIOTOUS, LAW BREAKERS in the BLACKOUT.
“For we walk by faith and not by sight,” (2 Cor. 5:7).
While the RIGHTEOUS were praying, I heard glass shattering and cries of victory from those who had successfully robbed businesses of precious merchandise and destroyed property. Isa 3:11 states:
“But evil people are doomed; what they have done to others will now be done to them.”
After hours of Mayhem, the SUN began to rise. The economic aftermath of the BLACKOUT was CLEARLY widespread. BUT there was still no LEADERSHIP or AUTHORITIES to be found. The PEOPLE who stay inside their homes during night began to spill into the streets to survey the DAMAGE to their property and businesses. All this damage was initiated by the WICKED. Those had who caused all the CHAOS had return to their residence to hide their stolen goods and their crimes. But THE RIGHTEOUS came out into the LIGHT to see how the LORD moved in the BLACKOUT.
Around midday, partial communication was restored. Something had changed that was unimaginable. The BANKING SYSTEM was not FUNCTIONING and the PEOPLE could not get their MONEY! There was no way to make business transactions or to buy or sale. There was more MAYHEM after this news. What the looters did not take in the BLACKOUT, the needy confiscated. I could see that businesses had been robbed and vandalized. The DAMAGE was so great that there was no hope of restoring ANYTHING right away. As it is written in Ezekiel 7:15-16:
“There is fighting in the streets, and sickness and hunger in the houses. Anyone who is out in the country will die in the fighting, and anyone in the city will be a victim of sickness and hunger….All of them will moan over their SINS.”
And Ezekiel 7:19-20 states:
“They will throw their GOLD and SILVER away in the streets like garbage, because neither silver nor gold can save them when the LORD pours out his FURY. They cannot use it to SATISFY their desires or fill their stomachs. God and silver led them into SIN.”
A great many CHURCHES had been looted and burned down. The people were crying because their CHURCH BUILDING was reduced to RUBBLE. Ezekiel 7:21-22 states:
“I will let foreigners rob them, say the LORD. ‘And lawbreakers will take all their wealth and defile it. I will not interfere when my treasured Temple is profaned, when robbers break into it and defile it.”
I heard one of the RIGHTEOUS say, “Well, I guess we will have to RETURN to worshipping the LORD in our own homes, the way we first began. Before all of this mega church hype! The Lord in HIS MERCY has preserved us and our homes.” In the midst of all of this RUBBLE, the RIGHTEOUS started planning in which homes they would meet to have prayer meetings, worship service and bible study. The mega church buildings were in RUIN. The people would no longer GATHER in large church buildings, but in apartments and homes. The BLACKOUT changed the LEADERSHIP of the church as we know it, and relocated the gathering places where people worshipped God. Places where the LAW could no LONGER INFRINGE on the true meaning of the WORD OF GOD. A place where God’s people would not have to COMPROMISE the TRUTH. THE RIGHTEOUS IN CHRIST were sharing what they had with each other. Everyone freely opened their pantries and shared their resources to support each for the time being; and the LORD was with THE RIGHTEOUS in the MIDST OF THE CHAOS!
“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me; thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.” (Psalms 138:7)……..THE END OF THE VISION.
