On November 7th 2021, I was awakened from a sound sleep by a clanging noise just after 3:00 am, then fell back asleep. Then it happened again. On the third time, I was sufficiently awakened to the point I knew it wasn’t a noise from outside, but in the spirit realm.
It sounded like metal being hit three times in quick succession. Just before the third set of clangs ended, I received a vision of a pioneer woman standing on her front porch ringing one of those triangular-shaped dinner bells, as she called the family in from the field. I knew God was calling upon me to go to my special place to commune with Him.
As I went and sat before Him, He began to speak something He’d told me a while ago in prayer:
I want to speak to you!
Be very still and quiet in the days ahead.
It’s going to get noisy.
Not many will be able to hear Me.
Listen for Me; I will give you instructions.
I will come to you.”
A few days later, on November 16th, just after awakening the Lord said,
“This is the time to stock up on oil.”
Because I’d just awakened, my brain still groggy, it took a minute before I realized something had been said. Just as I was trying to discern if I’d heard correctly, the words were spoken a second time.
I was reminded of the parable Jesus gave of the ten virgins in Matthew 25. All were waiting for Jesus to return and went out to meet him. But because he was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. Five of the virgins were wise and kept their lanterns full of oil; the other five were foolish and did not. When the call went out that Jesus was coming, all of them got up to trim their lamps. When the foolish realized they didn’t have enough oil to make it, the wise told them to go buy for themselves.
While they were out Jesus returned, and those who were ready went in with Him to the wedding, and the door was shut. Afterwards, the foolish virgins returned knocking on the door to be let in, but Jesus told them to depart – He didn’t know them!
It’s very telling that I was awakened from sleep when told, “This is the time to stock up on oil.” The Lord’s showing sleepiness is the general condition of the Church. But God in His mercy is literally giving us a wake-up call.
Before proceeding, I want to share the following excerpt of a word given a few years ago titled, ‘The Labor Pains Will Soon Begin.’
“Proclaim MY Righteousness! The birth pains will soon begin.
During the pains, I AM your focal point. Keep your eyes focused ONLY on Me! After each, you must draw ever closer to Me.
Seek My will in preparation for the next. I will keep you perfectly aligned for what’s coming. Do not be concerned about anything, just look to Me.”
(end of word)
Saints, the Lord’s shown the birth pains have begun. I became acutely aware of this recently, mentioning to my prayer partners I was feeling a groaning and agony in my spirit I couldn’t put my finger on. It’s becoming clear a groaning, as a woman in travail, has now taken hold of His Remnant. And as those who’ve given birth know, labor oftentimes begins with ever so slight twinges of pressure, that gradually increase in intensity coming closer together. But our God’s given instructions on what we’re to do during this process.
In most recent posts, the Lord’s been showing where we are in the spiritual realm of things (links below).
Almost a year ago, God asked His people, “Are you ready to submit the petition?” Only He knew the answer to that question, and it appears the answer was, “No.” God’s waiting on His Saints to petition Him – the courts of Heaven – to render His holy righteous judgments! But before His Remnant approach His court with this petition, they must be ready to be used as Instruments of His Righteousness!
Saints, I want to speak to each of you reading this. I’m speaking from my heart as moved by the Spirit of God.
Everything is converging now, and the fulfillment of all things is at hand. Your focus must be on Him as never before. God’s calling you to come in from all your labors and dine with Him! Still yourself, and get quiet before Him. He wants to speak to you!
He wants you to know it’s soon going to get very noisy, and not many will be able to hear Him. This is the time for you to stock up on oil, and listen for Him. He will give you instructions. He will come to you.
I pray the Holy Spirit will minister this message to each of us for further revelation and understanding. I love you all dearly!

Diana Pulliam has been a Christian since the age of 22, but it wasn’t until 2008, while going through an especially trying time, that she asked God what He intended for her life. She told Him she wanted her life to give Him glory, but didn’t see how it was making any difference at all for His kingdom. She asked Him to not hold anything back, she wanted everything He intended for her, and was willing to do whatever He told her to do.
Two weeks later, during her quiet time with the Lord, she heard the Holy Spirit say, “Clean your house and write.” The last few years, He has given her dreams and visions about the times in which we live. In 2011, she started the blog The Mighty Hand of God as a place to write whatever the Lord inspires.
