Reflections on the State of Watch

As I reflect back on my previous post, called Rapture Dream: State of Watch - December 2013, I would like to share my thoughts.

First of all, someone may be thinking, "If there was a state of watch declared in December 2013, then why hasn't the Lord come back yet?"  That isn't for us to know.  Let's be careful that we are not like the scoffers.  As the apostle Peter said,

"Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, 'Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.'" (2Pe 3:3-4)

Although no man knows the day or hour, we may know the season.  And I believe the Lord has been indicating to his children who are spiritually awake that we are in that season, as I mentioned already in my post called, The Error of Rapture Date Setting.  So we must remain sober, so we can pray.  We must remain watchful and alert, looking for the Lord's return.

Man with a Withered Right Arm
In my post, Rapture Dream: State of Watch - December 2013, I described the man in my dream on December 1, 2013 with the withered right arm.  I used the words, "withered right arm," because those were the words I heard repeated to me when I woke up from the dream and pondered the meaning of it.  However, that would not have been my description of it from what I saw.  In fact, it never would have crossed my mind to call his right arm "withered," because it was infected and oozing with disgusting puss that soaked right through the sleeve of his black suit coat.  It was only after I woke up and reflected upon the dream in my mind that I heard, "Withered right arm...Withered right arm, etc."  So I just wanted to clarify that for whatever it's worth, and I have updated that post with this info.

Man with Two Horns
Interestingly, on December 30, 2013, I had another dream.  In the dream I saw a man with political authority who had two, short horns on his head like a lamb, similar to the horns on the famous sculpture of Moses by Michelangelo.  He was Caucasian with pointy ears like Dr. Spock on the original Star Trek television series, and short, dark hair like Dr. Spock.  He also had a second set of dark eyes that were set in his forehead above his normal eyes.  I noticed that when he turned his normal eyes, this other set of eyes also turned in the same direction, so they were functional.  He was speaking to a group of people in a room, in what seemed to be a hearing pertaining to something another man had done in the official capacity of his job. 

The political ruler was reviewing the case and finding that other man guilty of wrongdoing.  He cited as proof that the man had allegedly done whatever he did in response to many voices he was hearing – like voices in one’s head.  The ruler with horns sort of smiled and made a tongue-in-cheek remark at that point that the man was obviously at fault, since he committed the act in response to all those voices he listened to, and “not, say, five or six voices.”  By this I understood that he was alluding to the fact that he himself heard voices in his head, but only five or six, not as many as the man he was finding guilty.  The people laughed and thought that was funny.  They seemed enamored with him.

He spoke with an American accent like a Caucasian would talk. However, based on all his facial features – the horns, extra set of dark eyes on his forehead, and pointy ears – he did seemed more like a demon than a human.  I am not sure what level of authority he had or whether he was a head of state.

I do not have an interpretation for this, except to say that it could refer to an evil person that will soon take the world stage, as a political authority figure, who is actually a demon and not a man.  This beast's inspiration will come from the voices of evil demons. He will not judge justly, but with partiality.  And the people will be enamored with him.

The verse that comes to mind is the one about the beast with horns like a lamb in the Apocalypse:

"Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon. He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed." (Rev 13:11-12)

Other verses for meditation are:

"And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name." (Rev 13:16-17)

"He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time." (Dan 7:25)

"Forces from him will arise, desecrate the sanctuary fortress, and do away with the regular sacrifice. And they will set up the abomination of desolation. "By smooth words he will turn to godlessness those who act wickedly toward the covenant, but the people who know their God will display strength and take action." (Dan 11:31-32)

"Then the king will do as he pleases, and he will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will speak monstrous things against the God of gods; and he will prosper until the indignation is finished, for that which is decreed will be done." (Dan 11:36)

"It was also about these men that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, 'Behold, the Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones, to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.' These are grumblers, finding fault, following after their own lusts; they speak arrogantly, flattering people for the sake of gaining an advantage." (Jud 1:14-16)

What Was Comet ISON All About?
I'd also like to say a few words about the comet.  In my article, Rapture Dream: State of Watch - December 2013, I opened by saying:

"Before I went to bed on November 30, 2013, I prayed and asked the Lord to give me a dream to confirm that ISON will indeed cause an emergency event.  I had a dream on December 1, 2013 at around 6:00 AM and awoke from it realizing that it was an answer to my prayer for a confirmation dream."

As we all know by now, the comet did not cause an emergency event, but that was what I had prayed about. When I prayed for confirmation, I specifically had in mind the darkness that could come upon the earth immediately before the Lord's return, as Jesus stated in Mt 24:29, and my dream did in fact seem to confirm the matter of darkness, as well as the Lord's sudden return.  If you go back and read it, you will see that.

I continued later in the article by saying, "I had previously posted a blog asking the question whether comet ISON, one of seven comets being watched right now, could be a sign of the Lord's return.  When the comet broke up during its trip around the sun, I wondered if it had all come to nothing.  However, although it may have lost its ion-charged tail, it is still massive with a giant debris trail.  The rocks contained in the remnants of ISON are much larger than the official reports have stated.  Some may be as large as the earth, but they will be passing millions of miles from the earth at their closest point.  Yet if that debris trail spreads out wide enough before it reaches us, and even if one chunk the size of Florida hit the earth, it could be a major event.  Therefore, I have not dismissed that comet just yet, since it has not yet passed us."

As I have been thinking back and praying about those comments, I realize that while there was nothing necessarily untrue about what I said, none of the potential incidents related to the comet actually caused any disruptions on earth, except perhaps some of the debris causing many fireballs to be seen in the skies around the world in December.

While I was not setting a date for the Lord's return, I communicated a sense of urgency about the imminence of the Lord's return.  I stand by that declaration, and still believe we need to watch and pray, so that we may be prepared for it.  But in Comet ISON: a Sign of the Lord's Return? and Confirmations About ISON as a Sign of the Lord's Return, when I issued a forecast or warning about certain potential cataclysmic events in late November or December, (which I thought I had received confirmation about), perhaps I erred.  Although my main purpose was to warn of potentially impending danger, as we are told to do in Ez 33:6, and to show that the comet seemed to be "a sign" of the Lord's soon return, it was never my intent to cause any trouble for anyone.  I did not really get complaints about my articles, even though there might have been couple people who simply disagreed with me.  So that is not why I am writing this follow up.  But I just feel that before the Lord I must apologize to my readers for anything I wrote that was incorrect, and ask forgiveness for any trouble this may have caused you. 

I do want to remind you that at the end of my posts on this blog that refer to the rapture, I have a caveat that states: "You must take responsibility for your own actions. Nobody knows the day or the hour, and in no way am I date setting. This is only to provide you with information, so that you can make your own decisions, for which you will be accountable to God."  That same disclaimer was on the "state of watch" article.

If you were expecting disaster, and it did not happen in December, give thanks to God.  For it is only by His mercies that we are not consumed.  As the Scripture says, "It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not." (Lam 3:22, KJV)

Putting it All Together
So I conclude much the same way I did in Rapture Dream: State of Watch - December 2013. I still believe that this "state of watch" dream was from the Lord and the interpretation is true, confirming the coming days of darkness on the earth and the rapture that is about to happen. However, I will leave that up to those of you in Christ who are spiritual to discern that.

Some of the key elements were the burglar like a "thief in the night," representing the return of Christ and the rapture, and the angels singing that He is coming soon, which requires that we be in a state of watching and praying, repenting, and being infused with the Holy Spirit.

Pray that you will be counted worthy to stand before Jesus when He comes and escape the wrath that is coming.  Jesus is only coming for a holy Bride without spot or wrinkle, and we must make ourselves ready.  Another key element in the December 1 dream was the man with the withered right arm, and later in the December 30 dream of the political authority figure with the two horns, who was actually a demon.

I also remind you how the Lord was very clear to Dr. Owuor that "time is over," and He is about to step through heaven's door to come for His Bride, just as that angelic song declares, which I heard immediately after my dream.  His dream confirmed mine.

The vision that sister Rachael had also confirmed my dream.  This state of watch that has been declared is like an alarm or a phone ringing.  Don't delay answering the call, and find out later that Christ already came. Prepare for the glorious coming of the Messiah. His coming will no longer be delayed. He is coming sooner than you think, but the question is, will you be ready?

Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (Act 2:38)

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"

The Error of Rapture Date Setting

"The Lord is coming right away."  That is the message, and we must sound the alarm for people to prepare.  But many go beyond that and overreach by date-setting.  As I have stated previously The Timing of the Rapture, Jesus really meant that no man knows the day or hour, and we must not veer to the left or right of that, or else we will get into error.

“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." (Mt 24:36)

We can know the season, according to Mt 24:32-33, and I believe we are in the season right now.  That is enough for us to know. When we set dates and they do not happen, it only creates confusion, and does not glorify God.  It also gives the pagans an opportunity to mock.    

Superstitious Infatuation with the Date
I would like to quote from brother Yong Doo Kim, whom I love and respect, and have written about in my blog, Baptized by Blazing Fire.  He stated in his book:

"Many people are endlessly crying out that we are in the end time. Therefore, in order to discern this evil generation, people are gathering around gifted people. The people are wondering when the Lord will return. But most clear and certain is the fact that the gifted people do not know the answer to that question. It is only up to God. With the Lord’s statement in Matthew Chapter 24, we can indirectly discern the end time apocalyptic phenomenal events."

"As a matter of fact, when I visited heaven, I asked Apostle Paul a question. Paul humbly directed me to deeply read through the four gospels which have the statements of the Lord rather than the epistles of Paul. He pointed out and said that the four gospels are more beneficial. The end time apocalyptic phenomenal events in Matthew Chapter 24 would be the place to go for the answer."

"In some instances, there are people prowling around to determine the final day. But this infatuation to find the determined final day is clearly superstition. The best route for Christians is to be ready at all times. We must prepare ourselves spiritually on a daily basis."

"The Lord made some statements to me. He said that when the pastors do not prepare the congregations for rapture beforehand, the result will be that they will all be left behind. The believers who are left behind will vent out their anger on their pastors. They will be angered for not being raptured. The believers will take their revenge on pastors who had taught them in error during their lives. The pastors will die brutally by hands of their church members who were left behind. This event will occur throughout the world in all places and churches. As a pastor, I am truly in fear."

The Lord Jesus told brother Kim that His coming is "very near."  He recorded this in Baptize by Blazing Fire (Book 5).  Immediately afterward, brother Kim asked the Lord a related question.  I will quote directly from the book:

Brother Yong-Doo Kim
"Pastor Kim: My beloved Lord, thank you for your grace. Someone has stated that You will come when his/her grandchild is a teenager, specifically mid teens. Is he/she deluded?"

"Jesus: My beloved servant, if I disclose the date of my coming to some of my servants, then chaos will come upon the world. As I have stated in the Bible, I will come like a thief and no one will know. However, for those who are spiritually awaken, they will know that my coming is soon. They will not know the exact date but will know the season. They will suddenly realize the urgency of the coming. In that season, it will only be a matter of time."

"It will not be years and days of prophesying that the gates of heaven are opening or if the arch angels are blowing the trumpets, when I come for My bride, it will happen abruptly. For those spiritually awakened, when you are in a moment of prayer, suddenly, you will know and feel it spiritually through the spiritual realm that I am coming. All who are waiting and awakened will feel it together."

"I do not state the date to any single person, otherwise, the world may become chaotic and disorder may follow. Therefore, a date will not be given. Only the Father knows the date. My beloved servants, if you only love Me and you are abiding in Me, you will never be bewildered for not knowing the date."

A Warning to Date Setters
Zipporah Mushala
A Zambian sister I know, named Zipporah Mushala, received a message from the Lord for those who set rapture dates.  The Lord brought Zipporah and her sister Rachael back to Himself in 2011, and baptized them in the Holy Spirit.  Since then, they have been receiving dreams, visions, and revelations from the Lord. 

Zipporah states: "It's indeed such a terrible error to set a date for the rapture, for we just know that He is to come very soon, but not exactly when. The Lord Jesus Christ gave me a message for people who set dates that they should stop listening to satan's voice, as he is the only one who twists Scripture. (This is in the sense that some have misinterpreted some Scriptures to say that they can know the date of the rapture, when the Bible clearly says no one knows!) The Bible also says to test every spirit, to see if it is of God. And if one receives a revelation contrary to the word of God, then we know that it is not of God."

I believe that all date setters would do well to heed this warning from the Lord! You can read more about the Mushala sisters, and their messages from the Lord, in my articles, Zipporah Mushala Testimony of Hell and Rachael Mushala Testimony of Hell.

Putting it All Together
As far as I am aware, the Lord has been indicating to His sons and daughters for at least four years that He is "coming right away."  I recall when He gave Angelica Zambrano this message in 2009, saying, "I am no longer at the door; I am beyond the door.  I will come soon; My coming is near."  He also told her, "...Do not tell My people that I am coming soon.  Tell My people that I am coming right away." Later the Lord repeated again, "Tell My people that I am coming right away and that I am coming for a holy people.  Tell My people that only the holy ones, only the holy ones will see Me! 

It is still true today, and we must be ready when it suddenly happens.  But don't assume you are ready, because very few will actually make it to heaven in the rapture.  As Jesus said, "But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."  (Mt 7:14).

The Lord said to sister Angelica, "My people have left Me and gone back to worldly things...Tell My people to return to the old paths." Only the holy ones will see Him.  Only the holy ones will live in heaven. He said to Angelica, "I am coming for a holy people, ready, without blemish, without wrinkle and without defilement..." There will be no idolators, drunkards, adulterers, fornicators, greedy or swindlers in heaven.  Therefore, let us all seek the Lord now while there is time, and not seek the date of His return.

"Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near." (Is 55:6)

He is coming, but not for those that are half-hearted.  He will return only for a people that is seeking Him in spirit and in truth.  There is a promise for those who seek Him with all their hearts:

"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." (Jer 29:13)

Let's keep our eyes focused on Him, not the calendar, since everyone who has ever claimed to know the rapture date has been wrong.  Adore Him.

"Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." (Heb 12:2)

If you are not living your life for Jesus, keeping His Word, then I urge you to repent now before it's too late.  Return to the old paths! Live your life completely and solely for Him from this day forward, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Rapture Revelation to Angelica Zambrano

Angelica Zambrano
In 2009, the Lord took an Ecuadorean young lady, named Angelica Zambrano, to heaven and hell.  I have written about her testimony in my articles, Angelica Zambrano Hell and Heaven and Angelica Zambrano Second Visit to Hell. Among many other things, He showed her how the rapture will happen.  She states:

"Daughter, you have to return to Earth...Daughter, I am going to show you something: How I am coming to Earth for a holy people.  I am going to show you how the day of the Rapture will be."  

We walked to a place with a giant screen, and I saw people in it.  I could observe the whole world.  Then suddenly I saw thousands of people disappearing.  Pregnant women had their pregnancy disappear, and they looked like they had gone crazy screaming.

Children had disappeared from all over.  Many people were running from here to there, screaming, "This can't be, this can't be!  What's happening?"

I saw those who had known the Lord, but were left behind. (Matt 24:40-41) They were saying that Christ had come, the Rapture happened.  They screamed and wanted to kill themselves, but they couldn't.  The Lord told me, "Daughter, in those days, death will flee; Daughter, in those days the Holy Spirit will no longer be on Earth."  (Revelations 9:6) There were accidents but I didn't see a single dead person: all of them were alive, although injured.

After the Rapture, I observed enormous traffic with thousands of people.  He told me, "Daughter, look, this is how everything will happen."   I then saw people running from one place to another, shouting, "Christ came, Christ came!"  They would plead, "Lord, forgive me, forgive me, take me with You!"

But sadly the Lord said, "It will be too late.  The time to repent is now...Daughter, go tell humanity to seek Me, for during that time there will no longer be opportunity.  (Isaiah 55:6)  Daughter, it will be too late for all those that stay behind." When Jesus observed how people were left behind, He began to weep and said, "Daughter, I will go to Earth as it says in 1 Thes.  4: 16-17 : “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first; Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

But not everyone will go with the Lord, only those who are doing His will (Matthew 7:21) and living a holy life.  For the Lord told me, "Only those that are holy will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, (Hebrews 12:14), No one knows, neither the day nor the hour in which I will go for My holy people, not even the angels know it." (Matthew 24:36)

On the screen I saw people running around.  Magazines and TV news said that “CHRIST HAD COME.”  The screen closed, and Jesus finished by saying, "I will go for a holy people."   This was all He showed me.  After that, He brought me back here to Earth.

With angels gathered round, we began to descend these beautiful stairs; white steps with flowers surrounding them.  I was crying all the way down, pleading with Jesus, "Lord, please, don't leave me here.  Take me with You!" He responded, "Daughter, the nations, your family are waiting for you...Daughter, you must enter that body.  You must receive life, Daughter, so you can go and testify what you have seen.  Many will not believe you; many will believe you, but I am your faithful witness.  I am with you.  I will never leave you."

Angelica Testifying Before an Audience Later
The Lord told me, "Daughter, in those days the Holy Spirit will no longer be on Earth.  In those days, He will no longer be on Earth." (2 Thes. 2:7)  And I saw enormous traffic, with accidents.  Many people wanted to kill themselves, but Jesus said, "They shall seek death, but death shall flee from humanity.  Death will no longer be during that time."(Revelations 9:6)  I saw people watching TV and magazines that read, "Thousands and Thousands have Disappeared." Many already knew that Christ had come for His holy people.  Those who knew the Lord, but were left behind, went crying through the streets, wanting to kill themselves, but they could not do anything.

While in Heaven, Jesus said, "I will come for a holy people and I will come soon for My church."  But two weeks ago the Lord told me, "Daughter, I take pleasure in what you are doing, that you are fulfilling what I have given you, but do not tell My people that I am coming soon.  Tell My people that I am coming right away." Again the Lord said, "Tell My people that I am coming right away and that I am coming for a holy people.  Tell My people that only the holy ones, only the holy ones will see Me!...And do not be silent: Keep on declaring what I have told you."

Confirmation
Later, the Lord used Angelica's testimony to bring two Zambian sisters, named Rachael and Zipporah Mushala, back to Himself.  They repented and returned to the Lord.  Afterward they received the baptism with the Holy Spirit, and began to have dreams and visions from the Lord.  I have written about them in my articles, Rachael Mushala Testimony of Hell.  and Zipporah Mushala's testimony of hell.  Rachael states:

"The Lord then told us that He was the One who showed Angelica Zambrano heaven and hell and that her testimony is true. He said, 'Many people say there is no hell because the Lord is a merciful God. It is true that God is merciful, but He punishes those who turn away from Him. How can they talk about My judgments, when they don’t even know Me? When they’ve never even known My power? There is a real hell and you have to warn mankind. Let them make their own choice.'"

"He said, 'I have taken many people to heaven and hell to come back and testify, but why does humanity not believe? Why do you doubt their testimonies? Hell is a terrible place and it is not My wish that anyone should end up there.'”

Putting it All Together
If you are not living your life for Jesus, keeping His Word, then I urge you to repent now before it's too late.  Return to the old paths! Live your life completely and solely for Him from this day forward, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
