While in prayer today I saw a well-advanced wall and its condition, meticulous.
I then in sequence, began to see over stages in time, layers of various paints applied. There were many layers and when the walls became dirty with black spots and grime that more paint was applied.
Instead of looking at what the black spots were, they were simply washed off and painted over again. It was revealed that each layer gave signs and symptoms of decay, much had been revealed but it was suddenly washed and covered up.
Finally, I saw what was behind all the layers of paint.
The appearance of the wall was rotten. All the supporting structure wood was rotten and covered with black mold.
I was shocked as the wall had looked so clean and meticulous. However, during times of the signs when revelations, would surface about the possibility of underlying issues, instead of wanting to uncover the source, the person would wash the wall and cover it with paint again.
It was during these times that I noticed there was the smell of sulfur.
At the beginning everything looked fine but over the space of time what appeared as solid and beautiful yielded to the weight of decay and the wall and it could no longer be supported.
When one looked at the wall over the years would have never known that the wall was unstable and rotten to the core.
What surprised me was that the paint itself gave support for it was covered with so many layers of paint that it gave it some temporary stability but, in the end, the wall collapsed merely by touching it.
Yes, it seemed strange that the outer layers were able to maintain a very meticulous appearance.
The wall represents the stages of time in a person, family, ministry, organization, cities, and nation that refuses to see the problem of unbridled sin that has been hidden represented by the black spotted mold and grime.
Although they could reflect perfection even advanced in years and in great condition outwardly, the stages of sin would peak out of hiding.
Then there would be a quick work in cleaning, covering up, and denying anything was wrong instead of repenting for their sin, and the soul of the nation.
Under the years of layers revealed, rotten supporting structure of all sorts rotten to the core and covered with the black mold with the stench of sulfur.
There was no lasting repentance, renewal, or revival, only resistance and to cover up the real issue of sin against God.
However, the weight of that sin that is carried can no longer be supported unless the sin is repented of and atoned for so that it will be wiped away. There can be no new beginning unless there is repentance and the slate is wiped clean.
There were many times when God would send signs, wonders, and revelations concerning underlying issues but those in rebellion simply said, “Peace man!” “Love one another!” “Free love man!” “Let’s keep God out of it because we are free!” “Hey my body is mine and I can do what I want with it — including killing my baby!”
Things have been pushed down, covered, and rejected too long. We are at the most serious window in time of our lives like none other.
There must be a great awakening in this nation to usher in the end time harvest. Will we witness the collapse as people, families, ministries, various organizations, cities and our nation?
If WE don’t repent as The Church and as A Nation, layer by layer of rising tide shall overtake us and we shall see the collapse of a nation that forgot God.
The nation that forgets God, God will forget. If we don’t learn from history we are going to repeat it.
We must repent and pray for the soul of this nation, for in all these levels it must begin with us then our families, our ministries, our organizations, cities, and our nation!
You have heard, “Don’t involve religion with politics?” What a lie! God has always been involved in nations, governing, and politics!
We must take back everything that has been stolen from us, and turn around and take responsibility and repent to God for our lives and nation!
The landscape will look very different next year depending on if we hear the warnings and obey. May God have mercy on our souls and the soul of this nation!
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace,” Isaiah 9:6 KJV.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
