I had hesitated to share this topic in the past because it’s not a pleasant thing to think about, but He has instructed me that now is the time. So, I received this word on the 2nd of June 2021, and it took the form of a conversation and a vision that unfolded.
The Lord said to me, “Come, I will show you what will be hereafter.”
We went past the frankincense trees that I had seen in the past in another vision to the edge of a hill and looked down, and below I could see armies fighting. I saw that many were slain and there was smoke and blood and chaos.
“What is this, Lord?” I said.
“It is the valley of Jehoshephat.”
“Are these different nations?”
“And what are they warring about, Lord?”
“Territory, power, dominion – the things men always go to war over.”
“That wasn’t the way You made it in the beginning, Lord. Then Cain slew Abel…”
“Yes,” said the Lord, “He took his inclination from the evil one and brother has been against brother ever since.”
“Who will win this war, Lord?”
“The one who has least need to – the one with the most territory.”
And then I found myself looking at a map, an aerial view of the northern hemisphere with the borders of the countries delineated, and I could see all of Europe and the nations to the east of it. Then I saw a great bear rug tossed down over countries, from right to left, for a commander to walk on. And at the bottom edge of the rug, I saw a piece of land the shape of the edge of a boot sticking out.
“Is that Italy I see sticking out from under the rug, Lord.”
“Yes, Italy will come under Russia’s command in the latter days. The whole Eastern European bloc shall become booty of the bear.”
“What about Poland, Lord?”
“Not Poland. He has bowed his knee to Me and publicly declared My protection of their land, and I will not allow the bear to erode them. They have suffered once under tyranny, but not this time. Not on My watch.”
“Will You send angels to defend them, Lord?”
“Yes, I have commanded My angelic guard to position themselves on their borders.”
“Lord, when will this be?”
“2025 will see the completion of the laying of the rug.”
“Will I be here to witness that, Lord?”
“No daughter. You will be with me, safe and hidden. Look up the valley of Jehoshephat, that is your homework.”
And that’s where the conversation ended. So, the Valley of Jehoshephat is mentioned in Joel 3. This is what the Lord refers to as ‘the valley of decision’. Multitudes will be in the valley of decision. So, I did have a sense that when the Lord said there were fighting in the valley of Jehoshephat, I felt that He was referring to a period of time more than a specific geographical location. I had the sense that he was referring to a period of war in which many people would be in the valley of decision as to where they would be going if they should die – whether to choose the Lord or whether to align themselves with the evil one.
Joel 3:2 says ‘I will gather all the nations and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshephat and will plead with them there for My people and My heritage, Israel, they have scattered among the nations… The word ‘Jehoshephat’ means ‘Jehovah has judged’.
9 Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare war! Stir up the mighty men! Let all the men of war draw near, let them come up.
10 Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weak say, I am strong [a warrior]!
11 Hasten and come, all you nations round about, and assemble yourselves; there You, O Lord, will bring down Your mighty ones (Your warriors).
12 Let the nations bestir themselves and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat, for there will I sit to judge all the nations round about.
13 Put in the sickle, for the [vintage] harvest is ripe; come, get down and tread the grapes, for the winepress is full; the vats overflow, for the wickedness [of the peoples] is great.
14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. (Joel 3:9-14)
The word ‘nations’ is translated ‘heathen’ in the KJV, but actually means ‘a foreign nation, (In other words, not a Jewish nation) or a troupe of animals or a flight of locusts’. These verses are issuing a decree, calling for foreign nations to assemble their troops. The word ‘decision’ is ‘charutz’. It means ‘incised or gold that is mined, threshing sledge, having sharp teeth’. And we also do know that the word for ‘threshing sledge’ in Latin is ‘Tribulum’, from which we get the word ‘tribulation’. The tribulum or threshing sledge separates the wheat from the chaff.
I do know there have been many words of Russia invading the United States of America. But in this vision, the Lord was showing me about the movement and the taking of territory and the exercising of Dominion across Eastern Europe. Let’s pray Saints of God for the remnant and the saints in those lands, because it is common knowledge that invading troops are generally very barbaric with the population that live in the nations that they’re taking over, and the saints of God need the protection and the shelter of the Blood of the lamb and the angelic host that are sent to minister to the heirs of salvation. There’s a lot to pray for in these days, isn’t there!
I was getting ready yesterday to do what I thought was part two, and then I had a conversation with the Lord and it seemed He had more to say. So, this will be a three-part series. Yesterday morning, I read a report that newspapers and internet sites in the United Kingdom were reporting that they had intelligence that Russia was moving a nuclear warhead into the Ukraine, and we’re planning a pre-emptive strike. The site where I was reading the news is written by a man who used to be deep in the intelligence community, and he said that there is actually no report of this happening in the high-level intelligence community and the first knowledge of it was when it appeared in the press. Therefore, it is suspected that the UK will do a false flag nuclear attack and blame it on Russia, in order to trigger this war in the Ukraine and Eastern Europe area.
So, as I was sitting with the Lord yesterday morning, I asked Him, “Lord, is Britain going to do a false flag nuke?”
And He said, “Yes, the revived Roman Empire marches forth from there, and the same atrocities committed by the Roman soldiers before will be committed again, but this time using weapons of mass destruction.”
And then I saw a finger on a trigger and I saw the muscles in the finger tense, and I knew there was a hair’s breadth of time before utter chaos broke out.
And then I was shown a mud-slinging match. There were a few people on the left-hand side throwing mud at one person on the right-hand side, and mud was being thrown back and forth. Then I looked and I saw that the single person standing on the right-hand side was Putin, and he was deftly sidestepping the clumps of mud that were being thrown by the group on the left, and nothing was sticking to him. Onlookers started to notice that all the mud was stuck on the group arrayed against the single man, Putin.
And then I saw a balance scale with a label on its base that said ‘Public Opinion’. And it was tipping slowly to the right-hand side where Putin was standing. I saw people throwing their newspapers away, knowing that they were full of lies and that the rhetoric being spewed in vast volumes from the western news agents carried no weight. I saw people throwing their phones down on the table and scoffing at what they were reading in the mainstream news, and then I saw what you would call ‘spin doctors’ in a room with computers, and they were tearing their hair out because their refuge of lies lay uncovered.
I saw secretaries in very important offices typing furiously and emails with the heading ‘Classified’ being sent back and forth across the ocean like red blips on a radar screen. They were zapping back and forwards from the West – from the United States, towards Europe and the UK, back and forth. Faster and faster they moved, so that, in the end, it looked like a vast frenzy of fireflies on a dark night. But still, the scale stood tipped right down on the right-hand side.
Then I saw Boris Johnson rushing down the steps of 10 Downing Street, carrying two blue suitcases, the old-fashioned vintage kind that are soft and smallish. And it looked like he was going on a sudden holiday, but it he did not have a ‘happy holiday’ face and his movements were furtive, like he hoped no one saw him. There were no policemen standing guard outside the residence as he left, and then I saw him driving away in an unmarked car, not his usual mode of official transport.
Then my vision was shifted and I saw soldiers stationed in Eastern Europe penning their last letters to their loved ones, in case they would not return home from their assignments. They were not Russian or Ukrainian looking, but rather fresh-faced youths from other countries. They held the dog tags around their necks and stared somberly into the middle distance, and I saw that they were thinking of home and wondering if their bodies would only be identified by these name tags. I saw the atmosphere around them was grey, not like smoke or a stormy day, but the colors seemed to represent the mood – somber, stark reality, sadness – like men who knew that they were facing certain death.
This morning, when I got up, I said to the Lord, “Lord, what should people do with this information that You showed me yesterday?”
And He said, “Get their houses in order – and I don’t mean spring clean! No man knows the exact appointed hour of his death, but many are those whose souls will be required of them very soon.”
And I was reminded of the scripture in Luke 12:16-21.
16 Then He told them a parable, saying, The land of a rich man was fertile and yielded plentifully.
17 And he considered and debated within himself, What shall I do? I have no place [in which] to gather together my harvest.
18 And he said, I will do this: I will pull down my storehouses and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain or produce and my goods.
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have many good things laid up, [enough] for many years. Take your ease; eat, drink, and enjoy yourself merrily.
20 But God said to him, You fool! This very night they [the messengers of God] will demand your soul of you; and all the things that you have prepared, whose will they be?
21 So it is with the one who continues to lay up and hoard possessions for himself and is not rich [in his relation] to God [this is how he fares]
Then I was shown a dark hooded figure with a scythe in his right hand. He had his back to me and he was standing facing the spread-out map of Eastern Europe, which I had seen and described in the last message. Then he took a step forward and swung his scythe from right to left. And I knew that I was watching death sweep through the whole region.
Then he turned to his left and faced west, stretched over the ocean in-between and swung again over the North American continent. It was strange because this figure’s feet were still planted by the map of Eastern Europe, but a harvest of souls was being reaped in the west by his far-reaching scythe. And when I pondered this, I thought perhaps the death that would be reaped in the west would have its origin in Eastern Europe, perhaps in the form of missiles or warheads.
Then I was shown another scene: bond slaves in sackcloth garments positioned in their prayer closets. And they were wrestling with the prospect that they might die sooner than they expected to, in the midst of their plans to be useful in the end times to the Master. And finally, the wrestling was over and peace came, and they came to the point of full surrender to the mysterious and often unknown will of God.
You know, it is one thing to surrender when you fully understand what is ahead, but quite another to lay yourself on the altar in complete trust and surrender to the Father, who is NOT revealing His exact will personally for you. As soon as the surrender was complete, light and peace filled their faces and they lifted them towards heaven, and there was a shaft of light on their faces. Immediately, there was a knock at the door of their closets and the servant whom I did not see, but who held out a hand with a plate, came inside and on the plate was a scroll. It was not sealed with wax, but it was tied with a rough piece of twine in the same color as the hessian garment – like the twine you would use to lead a donkey. And I was reminded of the donkey that was tied up at the meeting of the ways, which Jesus sent His disciples to fetch for Him to ride on into Jerusalem. Each one of these bond slaves I was observing untied the scrolls and read the instructions written inside them and all the scrolls started with the same phrase: ‘Make haste, take this message and go urgently to ………..’
And then a place was named – a different place for each person.
I suddenly remembered Joseph, who received instruction in the night to take the child and his mother and go to Egypt urgently. Jesus is the message that these bond slaves are being sent to deliver at their appointed destinations.
13 Now after they had gone, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, Get up! [Tenderly] take unto you the young Child and His mother and flee to Egypt; and remain there till I tell you [otherwise], for Herod intends to search for the Child in order to destroy Him.
14 And having risen, he took the Child and His mother by night and withdrew to Egypt
15 And remained there until Herod’s death. This was to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet, Out of Egypt have I called My Son. (Matthew 2:13-15)
So, we see there that immediately after Joseph had received the instruction to take the child and to go, he was obedient. So, these bond slaves are being sent to deliver the message of Jesus; Yeshua, at their appointed destinations.
Then I was shown a storeroom in heaven with a huge wooden door. It had a circular handle, I haven’t seen a handle like that. It was circular but sunken into the door and you had to put your hand into the circle and press, and then the door would open. As I watched, this huge door slowly opened and a flood of exactly the same type of scrolls tied with twine poured out. And I knew that they had been held back for an appointed time – the end time assignments and destinations stored until the bond slaves of the Lamb surrendered fully in this day in which we live.
It is important to notice the sequence – first came the full surrender, then came the scroll. If you are seeking direction, first comes full surrender. Then the assignment is handed to you!
I was reminded of Psalm 110, which says
‘Your people will offer themselves willingly in the day of Your power; in the beauty of holiness out of the womb of the morning will spring forth Your young men who are as the dew’.
As we know, the dew falls all over the earth. I once had a vision when meditating on that Psalm, of a rain of arrows shot from a bow in the early hours of the dawn before the sun rose. And they landed all over the Earth. So great in their multitude that the enemy didn’t know which way to direct the attack! Because those who offered themselves willingly had been released from the bow of The Mighty King.
So may the Lord bless you & give you understanding. May He grant you grace, wherever you live on this earth, to come to the place of full surrender, that you may be able to say, “Whether by life or by death, I will glorify my Lord.” And as you come to that place of complete surrender, no matter what the Lord’s will is for you, there are many who will be receiving scrolls tied with the twine used to lead a donkey – the bond slave donkey that carries the presence of Jesus wherever the scroll instructs them to. “Make haste and go to ………………..” And the bond slave arose and went.
I’ve included the following dream in the series, because it seems to depict the aftermath of war, and the effects on society. On the 20th of October 2021, I had a dream that I was in a huge vegetable garden with raised vegetable beds and a new gardener that I did not know. I was instructing him to pull out the weeds, and showed him where to throw the weeds on the compost heap. And he asked if someone had been locked up in this wire cage.
Now, I just want to interject here and say that my compost heap is fenced round with chicken wire because I allow my chickens to root around and turn the compost and generally contribute manure to the compost heap. But it seemed that this gardener was very familiar with the concept of people being locked up in cages. So I said to him, no, it’s always just been a compost heap.
Then in the next scene, he and I were scratching around in some sort of refuse dump, along with many other people. They were mostly middle-class people who were wearing old clothes; worn-out clothes, which reminded me of the Great Depression-era fashion, and these people were all thin. While I was scratching, I saw a piece of metal sticking out, dug it out and found that it was a metal potbelly fireplace with two other parts for decoration on the top. I said to the gardener that I liked it and pulled it out and extracted it from the refuse heap. There were other people digging nearby.
Then the gardener said to me, “They are going to get rid of doctors,”
And he told me he had quite a stock of medicine in preparation for this time. And after he said this, we discovered that someone had stolen my little pot-bellied fireplace. I asked around and finally someone indicated that it had been taken by someone in a certain direction. So, I ran in that direction because that little fireplace was valuable to keep warm in winter and one would also be able to put a pot on top and cook a bit of food. I found a woman with some kind of authority who indicated to me that the metal fireplace had been put in a sack. And I said to her, “It is mine”.
And she said, “Take it,” and she marked the fireplace with an ‘x’, meaning that it had been sold and paid for. So, this whole concept of digging on the refuse heap was that people were digging on the dump and then being made to pay for the stuff they found, in order to be able to take it away.
Just after this, I heard a woman talking to another woman and saying that those in authority were going to put five or six soldiers in each house. I went up to one of them and asked her to tell me about it and she looked around in alarm and said, “Lower your voice or they will hear you.”
And then she told me that every home would be assigned five to six soldiers to house and feed. And I knew immediately in my heart that this would effectively destroy all the family’s food stores and put them in danger from the soldiers, especially if they had daughters. And then my dream ended, and I woke at exactly 4:55 am.
So what the dream is depicting is basically that the middle class is in utter poverty, that it is not safe to speak out loud about events that are happening and things that are going to happen. There is a danger of being overheard and possibly reported and punished, and that there will be a foreign military presence in homes.
Now, I do not know what nation I was in when I had that dream. I think the Lord was warning about a general state of affairs with ongoing rollout of war and nations being overtaken by the military presence of other nations. And it’s a warning that the foreign military – very possibly military that do not speak the language that we speak in our homes, are appointed to be positioned in homes and be fed for a period of time.
Now, last week, I had picked up a novel called ‘In the Shadow of the Sun King’, and it is about the French Huguenots and the persecution by the Catholic Church in France before they fled to other nations. And in that novel, (which is very historically accurate because the author always studies history and writes accurately in her novels about what occurred at that time) it describes what happened to this French Huguenot family who did not want to show allegiance to the Sun King, Louis, because he was Catholic and they were Protestant and knew of the idolatry in the Catholic Church. There was sent to them a group of dragoons (soldiers) to billet in their house. And the soldiers ransacked the house, molested the servants, slaughtered some of the cattle just for fun and generally acted like drunken louts in the house. When the family heard that the dragoons were coming, they already had a plan in place to send their two young sons into the forest with the brother in law, to hide in a cave where supplies had been placed and they were to stay there until someone came to fetch them, because what the Dragoons had been told to do was take the young boys away from the family and send them to a Catholic school for indoctrination and training for the army.
So this is what our forefathers in the faith who were under persecution had to endure, and this dream is bringing to light the fact that these things are going to be happening again. Therefore, it is wisdom to have a plan in place, in case one has to flee; to have hidden supplies in place in case one’s home gets filled with soldiers. Supplies would have to be in a place where soldiers would not look, and you’re going to have to ask the Lord for that revelation and wisdom on how to prepare for these things.
I don’t want to scare you, but God never gives dreams like this just for the scare factor, but for the warning and the preparation factor. In that book that I was reading, the soldiers were called back to the palace and they took the husband with them, treated him very poorly and the wife got hold of her sons and they fled to Switzerland.
As I mentioned, I woke at 4:55 am. and the Holy Spirit prompted me to look up in the Strong’s concordance what the word H455 is. And it is ‘Elyachba’. This name means ‘God will hide’. And I was so encouraged by this because of the situation in the dream with the foreign soldiers and the time of trouble, scarcity of food, obviously no work – I am sure this dream was depicting those who have not taken the needle in the arm, because in the days ahead, only those who have their v.passports will be allowed to go into the shops. So, the living level and the functioning level of the middle-class who have resisted the mandates being rolled out was severely reduced. So much so, that people will be digging on rubbish heaps to maybe find something of value to use. That tells me that we will have no access to the shops and also the fact that there was a huge vegetable garden in a place I didn’t know or recognise as significant. Now, I’ve often mentioned my vegetable garden, but it’s nowhere near the size it was in the dream – that vegetable garden was growing enough food for quite a large number of people.
So, I pondered whether I was depicting the Bridal Company who have been moved by God to new places where they’ve become self-sufficient, growing their own food. It seems to me that that is a likely scenario, but our wonderful God sent a word of comfort in it all when He gave me that word, Elyachba – ‘God will hide’. And Elyachba was one of David’s 30 mighty men. The people who know their God shall be strong and do exploits. We may be going into an era of chaos, of war, of great military movement, of foreign troops and a great change in personal circumstances for those who are keeping their vessels holy to the Lord. But in the midst of it all, we will do exploits for the Lord, and He will hide us. Praise God.
And I also want to share that I had another dream a while back, it wasn’t a war dream as such, but I was in a garden in the evening. It was dark, but not so dark that you couldn’t see a thing. And I saw a man being chased by another man with a gun, and he tried to hide himself, but he was shot in the head.
While I watched him being pursued, I hid myself in the garden because I was also vulnerable to being pursued and injured or killed by this person with the gun. I was hiding under a bush, not moving a muscle, just crouching and staring at the ground, and suddenly there was a pair of feet standing right in front of me, and I knew the man with the gun was standing looming over me. And I waited to be shot and just quietly said in my heart, “Lord, into Your hand, I commit my spirit,” because there seemed to be no way out of that situation. And then the dream ended and I woke up. And that last little scene where he stood right in front of me and I waited, in this pregnant pause, it probably went on for at least a minute or minute and a half, which is quite a long time for one scene to freeze in a dream.
When I woke up, I asked the Lord, “Why did that man not immediately shoot me?”
And the Lord said to me, “Because he could not see you. Because I was hiding you from him.”
So, I want to just encourage you that, although we’re going into quite dangerous times ahead, that God will hide His faithful remnant – sometimes in plain sight, like happened in the last dream. And also, He will provide for us, because in the first dream, I related about digging on the rubbish dump. He allowed me to find that pot-bellied fireplace, which was a great find, and it was quite surprising that no one else had found it before me. And He also didn’t allow it to be stolen from me. And when I told the woman it was mine, she just marked it as ‘sold’. There was no handover of any form of finance. So that dream also speaks of supernatural provision, when one is unable to function in the realm of hard cash. So, God is going to look after His faithful remnant, He’s going to hide us – Elyachba – He’s going to protect us.
Remember Revelation 12, where the woman fled to the wilderness to a place prepared where she was kept SAFE and PROVIDED FOR? So there’s safety and there’s provision for three and a half years. So, although the dream does paint a rather dark scenario as far as foreign soldiers being billeted to the house, remember also that God may be placing them under one’s roof in order for one to lead them to the Lord.
So, it’s obviously going to be a dangerous time for Christians, but by the Spirit of the living God, we will do exploits. Our lives are hidden with Christ in God! These days, every time I take communion. I thank God for this meal; the bread and the wine, which is the covenant meal. I thank Him for this covenant of protection and provision paid for by the Bridegroom, the Lamb that was slain. We come under the wing of His marriage covenant and our welfare is His responsibility.
May the Lord bless you and guide you. May He give you great wisdom and strategic thinking and planning ahead, so that, by the time one is faced with the situation, like the Huguenot family in that book I was reading, one is already well prepared and everything is in place. Everybody knows the plan. Everybody knows exactly what needs to be done and the Spirit of the living God guides and leads us every step of the way.
By the way, for those who’d like to know how that story ended, the husband was assigned by the king to be put in the Bastille for some time. He made friends with the man next door, who was a very influential businessman who had dared to disagree with one of the king’s opinions. And then the husband was sent off as a slave on the galley ships. And it turned out that the man he had made friends with happened to be the owner of those ships, and he was released from prison after some time. One day, he was reading the lists of slaves in the ships, and he came across the name of the man he had met in the Bastille, and he released him from the galley. And God reunited the family. So, I want you to know that we serve the God of the impossible!
Do not fling away your fearless confidence. You have need of steadfast patience and endurance that after you have fully completed the will of God, you may carry away and enjoy to the full what is promised (Hebrews 10 from verse 35) For still a very little while and the coming One will come, and He will not delay. But the just shall live by faith, and if he draws back or shrinks in fear, My soul has no delight in him. But our way is not of those who draw back to eternal misery and are utterly destroyed. But we are of those who believe and by faith preserve the soul!
I want to just highlight two things in that passage for you. It says you have need of steadfast patience and endurance. Steadfastness speaks of not wavering. And endurance speaks of holding out to the end. So, there’s patience, endurance and faith. And then I want to show you something in Revelation 13, this is the chapter which speaks about the mark of the Beast being rolled out. It speaks about him being permitted to wage war on God’s holy people and to overcome them. Then Revelation 13:9 says:
‘If anyone is able to hear, let him listen. Whoever leads into captivity will himself go into captivity. If anyone slays with the sword, with the sword must be slain. Herein is the call for the patience and faith and fidelity of the Saints’.
So, there again, we see the words ‘patience’, ‘faith’ and ‘faithfulness of the Saints’. In other words, patient endurance, holding on to your faith, enduring through whatever is coming and staying true and faithful as a bond slave to the Master. So, I believe in the days in which we live, Hebrews 10:35 to the end and Revelation 13:9,10 are connected together. So, let us endure, have steadfast patience and fully complete the will of God because the coming One is soon coming. And He will not delay and the just shall live by faith – not by sight, but by faith, in the days ahead.
I want to just also say, DO NOT LAPSE INTO FEAR. AND UNBELIEF concerning God’s ability to supply for us in the days ahead. He is El Shaddai – the many breasted One, and the word of God says that young lions may suffer hunger, but in the days of famine, the righteous will be satisfied. God is well able to provide and protect in these days, and I want you to prepare your heart for the days of miraculous provision and miraculous protection. They’re going to be times where you open your front door in the morning thinking, “What am I going to feed my children today?” and there is a bag of food already sitting on your front doorstep. They are going to be times where you have 10 people sitting at your table and you have cooked one cup of rice, which normally feeds about four people, and you are going to be dishing out bowls of food. When all 10 have got a bowl of rice in front of them, there is still going to be rice in the pot. These are the days when our God is going to prove Himself faithful to His remnant. We are going to have so many testimonies of miraculous provision and protection. So, praise God that we are His, and not part of the enemies horde in these days.
Shalom. May the Lord bless you and keep you!
