While praying and repenting of various things, I was caught up into Heaven and saw Jesus standing directly in front of me with a grin on His face. He held out, in both hands, a gleaming sword and said, "Do you want your sword back?" I hadn't realized I'd lost it, but I somehow I had. I replied, "Yes, Lord." Then I held out both my hands and He laid the sword in them. It was so beautiful and strong! I wondered what this was about.
A Portal into the Mountain of Religion
Jesus then escorted me over to where there was what looked like a large 8-foot diameter mirror with gold frame around it. But as we got closer, I realized this was not a mirror – it was a portal! Jesus pointed into it and said, "Look." I stepped closer and saw in it the earth below. Then, in closer detail, I saw a huge, tall, stony mountain, and heard the Lord say, "This is the mountain of RELIGION on Earth. Watch and see."
Angels of Light Dispatched Like Missiles
Millions of "angels of light" had been dispatched from Heaven and were shooting into the mountain of RELIGION like missiles, with big flashes of light and booming sounds like thunder! I knew that a great exposure of darkness to the light of God was going on, both now and in the days just ahead. (Photo via Pixabay)
Jesus continued, "All the religions of every culture are on this mountain, and they are now being impacted by waves of My angels of light. But take a closer look. I want to show you My Church...My body of Believers."
Choose This Day Whom You Will Serve
The scene changed and I saw the interior of a large mainstream church with ornate pews and dimly lit lights. Dark caskets were lying in most of the pews, and one was very close to me on the floor of the main aisle. Written in bold, white letters on the side of each casket were the words "DEAD WORKS."
Suddenly, the angels of light hit the church! Bright light from Heaven flashed all over the dark caskets which shook each time with their impact. It got so intense that the lids on the caskets flung open. In each one lay a Christian who had at some point received Jesus into their heart.
Then I heard the Lord speak over them, "WAKE UP, CHURCH! CHOOSE THIS DAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE...DEAD WORKS OR ME!"
Immediately, a lot of the people opened their eyes, sat up and stepped out of their caskets with a new resolve to follow the Lord (including me)! Others still lay there, trying to decide. I could hear many of their thoughts, like, "I like my church. I like my pastor. I like my friends here. And I'm comfortable here. It's a good place to worship and fellowship. I don't want to change. I feel safe here. It's too messy out there. I don't want to deal with all the evil."
The ones who had gotten up out of their caskets suddenly transformed! The full armor of God appeared on them in shining glory (Ephesians 6)! Each one became a mighty warrior of the Kingdom, looking straight ahead at Jesus with both of their hands firmly holding their sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:17). Each one seemed to be thinking, Reporting for duty, Lord!
The Greatest Outpouring of the Holy Spirit and an Army of Warriors Armed with Love
A time passed for everyone to choose. I don't know how long it was. But when the Father determined the time for repentance was over, He gave the order. He released the greatest outpouring of the Holy Spirit ever, like a mighty wave, onto the entire world! Those who decided to stay in their caskets floated away and disappeared at the onrush of these mighty waters. The warriors who left their caskets behind to follow Jesus were sucked up into the huge wave of the Spirit and surfaced on top! Each one faced forward, fully armed with a firm grip on their swords of the Spirit...ready for battle, and their greatest weapon was love! (Photo via Pexels)
Then I heard the Lord say, "It is a time of war, and My Church is not ready. The devil has come in like a flood attempting to establish a premature one world government. They are trying to change "times and laws" (Daniel 7:25), but WE will not let them. I will have My great harvest at the end of the age (Matthew 13:39-43). My Spirit will be poured out on all flesh (Joel 2:28). The knowledge of the glory of the Lord will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14). My Bride will be without spot or wrinkle (Ephesians 5:27). All of this is coming upon you now and in the days ahead."
"You are in Me and I am in you. We are seated on My throne together. My sword is in your mouth! Use it! Decree with Me: RISE UP, CHURCH! COME OUT OF YOUR DEAD WORKS! PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD, AND WE WILL PUSH BACK THE DARKNESS TOGETHER!"
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (â€â€Philippiansâ€¬ â€4:13â€¬ â€NKJVâ€¬â€¬)
