God has laid the following word on my heart even as He readies Himself to spue the lukewarm church out of His mouth.
“The leaders of My people who have taught My sheep to err have an appointment with the Most High. I will require it of them. Those who have not sought out My truth and have not prepared themselves or My body for My return are going to be stripped naked in the sight of all.
I tell you of a truth, there are many preachers and teachers of My word who have erred from the faith that was once delivered to the saints. They have not contended for My truth. Did I not say in My word to earnestly contend for the faith? (Jude 1:3)
Things are going to change suddenly. Those who are prepared will not be caught off guard, but many in My body will be swept under by deceit. Even as they have not represented My truth, I will allow deceit to have it’s way with them unless they repent. Sudden change is coming to this nation and the church. This nation is as a high flying plane reaching to the heavens that will suddenly go into a tailspin from which it will not recover.
As this nation is, so is the lukewarm church. She has long since abandoned her first love and has sought out many other lovers. She has built for herself great cathedrals. But where am I? She has erected many edifices to herself. But where am I? For when sudden destruction comes ; and it will come though I am longsuffering , your church leaders will not know where I am. For the people will say, “Where is God? Why did He let this happen?”
My remnant in whom I have entrusted My holy word will know where I am and they will lead the lost and broken to fountains of living waters.”
I also received the following dream on May 22 . I was on a ship in a body of water, attending a Christian conference. Instead of preaching the word, the leader of the conference was asking the attendees to sing a song of their own choosing, whatever was on their heart.
As the meeting continued, I noticed dark waves starting to hit the ship. Then the waves got higher until they completely came up over the ship. Then suddenly without warning, it went completely dark.
No one was offering up solutions as what to do. The leader of the conference was eerily quiet. Sensing we were going to be engulfed under if someone didn’t do something, I spoke and said, “We have to get back to the shore quickly.”
As we started back at full speed, the lights came back on and I became aware of my surroundings. I looked out into the water and I could see many other ships , all different sizes, racing back to the shore.
I believe the conference and the leader represent the current seeker-friendly church, striving to be relevant to the culture. David Wilkerson referred to this as the “gospel of accommodation” because it adapts the gospel to appease sinners. The conference attendees were being encouraged to follow their own hearts and not the truth of God’s word.
The different ships represent churches and ministries. The shore represents Christ, the true light. I believe this dream confirms that many Christian leaders will fail to offer answers in the difficult days ahead, but God’s remnant will arise and lead his people back to truth.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. (Matthew 7:24-27)
Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. (Jude 1:3)
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. (Revelation 3:15-19)
