Even though I have been in a church that teaches a pre-trib rapture since I got saved in 1978, I never could see what the teachers “saw” in Revelation 4:1.
Then, in 2012 I had an open vision that propelled me into a deep Biblical study of the rapture. In the vision, I saw the earth hanging in its atmosphere with diamonds buried throughout, representing “true lovers of Jesus”. Then a fire broke out in northern Asia/Russia, which I knew was to happen in the not too distant future. It spread until it devoured the entire earth, burning up everything like stubble. All that was remained were the diamonds.
The selfsame fire that destroyed everything in its path only made the diamonds shine brighter. Then I heard the voice of the Lord say, “I did not give my life to fill a roster full of names. I died to produce for myself a bride, one who genuinely loves me with all of her heart, soul, mind and strength, and who is loyal to Me. And she shall be mine on that day that I make up my jewels.” (Mal. 3:17).
When the vision ended, I asked the Lord if He was showing me the great tribulation. He didn’t answer, so I began a deep study of every verse having to do with the rapture, from cover to cover . In the end, I could not find a pre-trib rapture in the Bible! However, I did find what Jesus taught about the rapture in Matt. 24, that it happens “immediately after the tribulation of those days.” I think Jesus, the final authority, should know. Why do so many Christians disregard what He said on the subject???
Then I thought further about the vision and the symbolism involved. “Tribulation” in the Greek, is “pressure”. How are diamonds produced? They are formed in the midst of intense heat (ie. fire) and pressure. I believe my vision revealed the great tribulation, perhaps represented by World War 3 coming from China and Russia.
It was revealed to me that the fire I saw devouring the earth was going to include, not only possible physical fire such as World War 3, but also a spiritual fire: strong persecution, even in America. (Luke 12:43-52). This persecution is going to widely separate the sheep from the goats, the wheat from the tares. The wicked will increase in wickedness, and the righteous will be purified. (Daniel12:10). There will be absolutely no option left for lukewarmness. Every Christian will be forced to choose between following Christ all the way, even to the point of imprisonment or death, or go all the way to the left. No one will be able to be an “undercover Christian”. It will be clearly revealed “who’s who”.
Some will turn out to be traitors of other Christians, and this will be shocking. We must guard against being offended, and letting our love grow cold. We must learn now to love our enemies, and forgive everyone who has hurt us, before it gets bad. For those who are purified by the refining fire, it will result in true revival, such as Jesus described in John 17. We will see His glory, and many, many, many will be saved. This will be like the book of Acts, but far more intense. It will be the grand finale just before Jesus returns!
This vision also confirmed the following prophetic word I received in 1987:
“A time is coming to America that is going to be so hard, you are going to have to literally cling to Me to make it. You will have to know how to pray, to have a deep, personal knowledge of My Word, know My Voice, and know how to keep in step with My Spirit. Keeping in step with My Spirit could be the difference between life and death. Learn these things now, before it arrives, for then it will be too late to learn.
America will be stripped of everything, like Israel in the desert. All you will have to meet your every need is Me alone. You will know what it means to depend only on every Word that comes out of My mouth. Those who fully depend on Me will see miracles. This stripping will prove who really loves Me, and why really doesn’t, separating the sheep from the goats. You will have absolutely no reason in the natural to love Me, similar to Job. The ones who truly love Me, not merely My blessings, but Me, will walk in My power and glory like they have never known. This will lead to great revival and a great harvest of souls.”

As a child, Kerry Lebrun was a victim of severe abuse. At age nineteen, she was a total atheist and knew nothing about the Bible. Then one night, she encountered the living Christ in a prophetic dream. He quoted a verse to her from John’s Gospel. She believed and received salvation. Afterwards, she received more dreams and visions that essentially unveiled the many facets of the cross and how to apply its’ transforming power to her heart and life, resulting in the total eradication of severe Post Traumatic Stress disorder and a host of related issues caused by the abuse she endured. God instructed her to write a book to pass on these revelations and teachings of the cross to others, so they, too, can be set free. Her book “Against All Hope Until…” can be viewed on her website Heavens Hope Unveiled.
