“But [Joshua said] if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Then the people answered, “Far be it from us to forsake the Lord to serve other gods! It was the Lord our God Himself Who brought us and our fathers up out of Egypt, from that land of slavery, and performed those great signs before our eyes. He protected us on our entire journey and among all the nations through which we traveled. And the Lord drove out before us all the nations, including the Amorites, who lived in the land. We too will serve the Lord, because He is our God.” Joshua said to the people, “You are not able to serve the Lord. He is a Holy God; He is a jealous God. He will not forgive your rebellion and your sins. If you forsake the Lord and serve foreign gods, He will turn and bring disaster on you and make an end of you, after He has been good to you.” But the people said to Joshua, “No! We will serve the Lord.” Then Joshua said, “You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen to serve the Lord.” “Yes, we are witnesses,” they replied. “Now then,” said Joshua, “throw away the foreign gods that are among you and yield your hearts to the Lord, the God of Israel.” And the people said to Joshua, “We will serve the Lord our God and obey Him.” [Josh 24:15-24]
Following is a broad timeline of events foretold in a series of prophetic dreams given by God to Pastor Dana [pastor of an Assemblies of God church in Kentucky] to warn His people of His judgment of self-destruction that you currently see playing out upon our Nation. There are a number of vivid and graphic details I have omitted that you can listen to for yourself in the following link to my website posting of Pastor Dana’s prophetic dreams: https://preservechristianfamily.org/2020/10/09/brace-yourself/
You may wonder: what good can come of these prophetic messages? Why should anyone have to live under such anxiety? I remind you, Jesus warned Jerusalem of sudden devastation to come upon that city. It was going to be burned to the ground, with over a million people murdered. Christ explained His warning: “I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, you might believe.” [John 14:29] He was saying, in essence, “When it happens, you’ll know there is a God Who loves you and forewarned you.”
We are not to fear any newscast, but rather to be attentive to what the Lord is doing in the world. The truth is, God moves in the midst of such times, and through them he speaks warnings to all who would hear His voice. In short, sudden judgment is coming, and Scripture strongly indicates it is now at the door. “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets.” (Amos 3:7)
March and June, 2020
- The first prophetic dream given in December 2019, foretelling and providing graphic scenes of ominous events during March and June of this year, which have played out 100% exactly as, and when, it was foretold, and 100% exactly as we all have witnessed it unfolding in the news during those months.
- Emphasis on the month of September as significant, with no details as to why. A very significant event did indeed take place in September that no one could have foreseen except the Lord…the death of RBG and the need to fill her Supreme Court seat. This event would trigger the ominous events that were foretold in a following prophetic dream to take place during the month of October. Once again, the prophesy was 100% correct.
- Emphasis on the 2nd through 3rd weeks of October…politicians and criminal protesters [who vehemently oppose our President] talking, getting animated, yelling and screaming, whose facial images went from normal to a red-faced out-of-your-mind primal scream, literally all exploding at the same time in a fiery rage. You already see this playing out since October 12th [2nd week of October as foretold by the Spirit], when the Senate began the process of filling the open Supreme Court seat with the President’s chosen candidate.
- Violent criminal protests continuing, increasing in physical violence.
News article: Louisiana man charged with shooting and killing toddler during violent rampage.
- Value of the US $ plummets.
- Churches and Christians increasingly persecuted.
- Health, wealth, and prosperity preachers exposed for their phony heretical gospel.
- Big billboard: “Passover 2021” Big Things Are Coming For The World. Our whole world is about to be turned upside down.
The prophet Isaiah warns us that in the last days God is going to “turn the world upside down.” He declares, “Behold, the Lord maketh the Earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down.” (Isaiah 24:1) According to this prophecy, sudden judgment is coming upon the Earth, and it will change everything in a single hour. Within that short span, the whole world will witness fast-falling destruction upon a city and a nation, and the world will never be the same. Scripture makes it clear: in a single hour, the world is going to change. The church is going to change. And every individual on Earth is going to change.
- Emphasis on October 31st, with no details as to why. We will have to wait and see.
- Headlines: Trump Victory Challenged Everywhere. Someone holding a placard: “The obvious winner is not so obvious.”
- Rampaging mobs of armed criminal anarchists and insurrectionists burning and looting, destroying and terrorizing.
- Washington, D.C. engulfed in a blazing inferno; churches and homes being burned.
In Isaiah’s prophecy, the city under judgment is cast into confusion. Every house is shut up, with no one coming or going. “The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in” (Isaiah 24:10) The entire city is left desolate: “In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction” (24:12) All entrances and exits to the city are gone. The passage indicates that a fire has come, a blast that has shaken the very foundations of the Earth (see 24:6)
- People fighting and pummeling one another in the streets, seemingly engaged in a civil war; absolute chaos and destruction off the charts!
- Military things taking place. Blue helmeted UN troops in Washington, DC; Russian and Chinese soldiers part of UN assistance efforts.
- Newspaper headline: Shock and Awe in the US. UN steps in to help host Nation.
- Wealth and portfolio values plummeting; hyper-inflation.
Once this judgment strikes, it will devastate the economy. Rich merchants will stand by watching in torment, weeping and mourning, as they face bankruptcy. In an instant, all the wealth they amassed will be reduced to nothing. John describes the scene: “The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city… For in one hour so great riches is come to nought.” (Revelation 18:15–17)
Overnight, all buying and selling will cease. Every restaurant and bar will be shut down, and all drinking and music making will end. Indeed, every trace of mirth and delight, joy and gladness, will vanish: “All the merryhearted do sigh. The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth. They shall not drink wine with a song….The mirth of the land is gone.” (Isaiah 24:7–9, 11)
The world’s most prominent idol is money, and right now America is facing a monstrous financial disaster. Our National Debt has now skyrocketed to $27.0 Trillion…up $3.5 Trillion from just a few months ago! This is staggering; for the 1st time in our Nation’s history, our National Debt not only exceeds our annual Gross Domestic Product [21.4 Trillion last year], but exceeds it by far! We owe more money than we annually make…and this year it is still escalating, and will continue to escalate, out of control!
All idols will come crashing down, crushed to dust, and the playing field will be leveled. The richest and the poorest alike will face the same conditions. It will all happen within a day. “When they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” (1 Thessalonians 5:3)
- Words spoken by the Holy Spirit: Those who refuse to get ready will be wanting in the end. Ready or not, Nation, here it comes! So brace yourself, and tell others that I have warned them to brace themselves, for they are about to see even more shocking things. Remained braced, as this calm comes before a gathering storm that recovery will have a hard time finding.”
December, and January 2021
- Nationwide bewildering scarcity of goods.
- Debilitating emotional depression everywhere.
- Nationwide power outages;
- People standing for hours on long food lines;
- Ordinary citizens being housed in shelters;
- Baltic Dry Index completely dead…no movement of Global trade;
- Market crashes and yields lost;
- God’s holy remnant shining like little beacons of light and hope in neighborhoods throughout the Nation.
In such times, Paul says, when we have knowledge that sudden destruction is coming, we are not to tremble or sorrow as the world does. Instead, we are to comfort one another in faith, knowing that God rules over every aspect of our lives. “Be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.”
(1 Thessalonians 5:8) Paul instructs, “Arm yourself with faith. Build up your belief now, before the day comes. Learn your song, and you’ll be able to sing it in your fire.” “Glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel.” (Isaiah 24:15)
This is the hope of our most holy faith: our Lord causes a song to come out of the darkest of times. Start now to build up your holy faith in Him, and learn to praise His majesty quietly in your heart. When you sing your song, it will strengthen and encourage your brothers and sisters. And it will testify to the world: “Our Lord reigns over the Flood!”
My brothers & sisters in Christ…
This is the beginning of what was spoken through the prophet Joel: In the last days, God says, I will pour out My Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream divinely inspired dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out My Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy, telling forth the divine counsels and predicting future events pertaining especially to God’s Kingdom. I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the Earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon blood-red before the coming of the great and glorious Day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. [Acts 2:16-21]
Brace, brace, brace yourself. And be prepared. The exceedingly ominous and dire events that have been foretold in Pastor Dana’s prophetic dreams to take place beginning with the 2nd week of October and continuing through January 2021 will unfold without pause!
Following are quotes of words spoken by the Holy Spirit, Who appears as a white figure at various times in these prophetic dreams: “Brace yourself on My Word and on My promises, and do not rely on your own strength. Do not stop bracing yourselves, and don’t look back; the storm will not pass until I, the Lord, stop the storm! Those who refuse to get ready will be wanting in the end. Ready or not, Nation, here it comes! So brace yourself, and tell others that I have warned them to brace themselves, for they are about to see even more shocking things.”
Prepare yourself and your family materially, spiritually, and emotionally NOW for what the Lord is warning will take place; inquire of the Lord as to what He intends these dreams to mean for you personally!
The alarm has already been sounding and the trumpet has already been blowing…for the past 6 months! The warning is not that judgment is coming; judgment is already here, currently playing out before our very eyes…and is going to get MUCH WORSE.
But if the watchman sees the danger coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people, and the sword comes and takes the life of even one of them, that one will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood. [Ezek 33:6] Lord God Almighty, as Your watchman I have been solemnly fulfilling the responsibility You have given me in sounding the alarm to warn Your people; there will be no blood on my hands.
God has determined by His Own Divine decree to destroy our Nation…. and for obvious good reason; our Nation has out-sinned Sodom and Gomorrah for decades as a homosexual, pornographic, and depraved culture…and in addition has arrogantly determined to remove God entirely from the very fabric of our society!
I, the Lord, form the light and create darkness. I bring prosperity and national well-being, and I create physical calamity. I am the Lord, Who does all these things. Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on My holy hill. Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the judgment of the Lord is coming; it is close at hand. The Lord and the weapons of His wrath come from faraway lands…from the ends of the heavens…to seize and destroy the whole country. Wail, for the day of the Lord is at hand…the time for the Almighty to destroy. Every arm is paralyzed with fear. Every heart melts, and people are terrified. Pangs of anguish grip them, like those of a woman in labor. They look helplessly at one another, their faces aflame with fear. For see, the day of the Lord is coming…the terrible day of His fury and fierce anger…to make the land and the whole Earth a desolation, and to destroy out of it its sinners. And I, the Lord, will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their guilt and iniquity; I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the boastful pride of the violent and ruthless. For I will shake the heavens, and the Earth shall quake to its roots under the wrath of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the Judgment Day of My fierce anger. [Isa 45:7; Joel 2:1; Isa 13:5-9, 11, 13]
The prophet Isaiah warns us that in the last days God is going to “turn the world upside down.” He declares, “Behold, the Lord maketh the Earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down.” (Isaiah 24:1) The apostle John gives a similar warning in Revelation. He speaks of destructive judgment coming upon a city and nation: “In one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her….For in one hour so great riches is come to nought” (Revelation 18:8, 17)
Sudden destruction comes when the cup of violence overflows. Sensuality, perversion and greed are running rampant throughout our society. Yet, when God sent the Flood upon the Earth, it was because of a worldwide eruption of violence: “The Earth also was corrupt before God, and the Earth was filled with violence.” (Genesis 6:11)
There is no more USA…United States of America; our Constitution has been trampled upon, shredded, and burned. We are now the ASA…the Autonomous States of America. America is a “Christmas tree” Nation, cut off from our roots in God, and dead! We are watching as the needles continually dry up and fall off…we see it in the news every day, God’s judgment playing out!
Come, My people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the Lord’s wrath has passed by. For behold, the Lord is coming out of His Heavenly Sanctuary to punish the inhabitants of the Earth for their iniquity. The Earth also will disclose the blood shed upon her, and the ground will no longer hide those who have been murdered…63 million unborn children slaughtered in cold-blooded murder…and conceal her guilt. They will be brought out for all to see. [Isa 26:20-21] How long, Sovereign Lord, Holy and True, until you judge the inhabitants of the Earth and avenge our blood? [Rev 6:10]
We are encouraged, though, to keep our own integrity in times of common apostasy, that, if we do so, we shall be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.
God is calling a holy remnant to Himself…to personal revival…a holy remnant of His children who will not bow down, who will not shrink back, who will not compromise, who will remain steadfast and immovable in their commitment to follow the Lamb whithersoever He goes. God’s holy remnant is called to a life of self-sacrifice and self-denial. You cannot become part of My holy remnant without being willing to sacrifice your desire for anything and everything you own. Obedience is what characterizes the life of My child…obedience continually and unceasingly day and night.
In one hour, God is going to change the whole world. A sudden cataclysmic event will strike, the first of the final judgments of God. This great event will cause the Earth to reel. And Isaiah says that when it hits, there will be no place to escape: “The lofty [proud] city, he layeth it low…even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.” (Isaiah 26:5) “The inhabitants of the Earth are burned.” (24:6) Once this happens, utter chaos will erupt. All civic activities will stop, and society will descend into massive disorder. Government agencies will be helpless to restore any kind of sanity. No state troopers, no national guard, no army will be able to bring order to the upheaval. The scene in Isaiah’s prophecy is ominous: this calamity is clearly beyond humankind’s capacity to respond!
So, you ask, “What about God’s people in the midst of all this? What will happen to the church?” Isaiah gives us an incredible word about what will happen with believers. In the midst of the terrible shaking, a song will be heard, and its sound will grow steadily stronger. Suddenly, in that darkest of hours, a worldwide chorus of voices will sing praises to the majesty of God: “They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the Lord, they shall cry aloud from the sea.” (24:14)
Do you get the picture? There will be panic everywhere. Men’s hearts will fail them for fear, as fires belch smoke seen for hundreds of miles. Disorder and chaos will reign on all sides. Yet amid the devastating fires and calamity, the world will hear a glorious song being sung: “Glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel…From the uttermost part of the Earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous [One].” (Isaiah 24:15–16) A holy remnant is going to awaken, and a song will be born in the fire! Instead of panicking, the people of God will be praising His awesome majesty. Imagine it: in the darkest hour of all time, a collective voice will rise by the millions out of every nation, not in fear or agony, but in joyful praise to the Lord!
How will this happen, you ask? In one hour, God is going to regenerate and restore His Church. Dry bones will shake and rattle, and the righteous will be awakened, as the Holy Spirit calls multitudes of lukewarm believers back to their first love. In His mercy, He’s going to rouse those who have neglected Him, ignoring His Word, avoiding prayer, perhaps even contemplating divorce. Suddenly, their souls will be flooded with pangs of remorse and godly sorrow. And many will fall on their knees, crying out in repentance. There will be a revival of glorifying God’s majesty! And the song of this revival will be heard from the uttermost parts of the Earth. East, west, north and south…from Arab lands to China, Indonesia, Africa and all parts of the Earth…a glorious song will rise up from the midst of the fires. In one day’s time, those who survived the fires are going to be singing a new song throughout the world.
In one hour, God is going to change us as individuals. In a single hour, the focus of our lives will be changed. We’ll no longer obsess about our own adversities and troubles. Suddenly, so many things that we held dear will no longer be of any value to us. Why? In that hour, everyone will be in the same boat: “It shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.” (Isaiah 24:2) The sudden judgment that comes will not be a respecter of anyone. Rather, it is going to touch all who are within the realm of its fury. Presidents, kings, the world’s richest and most famous…all will tremble just like the poorest of the Earth. And this cataclysmic event will bring to naught every idol, purging iniquity and tearing down all false altars: “By this [the calamity] therefore shall the iniquity of Jacob be purged; and this is all the fruit to take away his sin; when God maketh all the stones of the altar as chalkstones that are beaten in sunder, the groves and images shall not stand up [be left standing]” (Isaiah 27:9).
Arise My bride, and prepare to pray:
- Pray to strengthen the backbone of the Church. The current ongoing persecution of the Church and of Christians is going to escalate exponentially; it is going to get MUCH WORSE.
- Pray for the cleansing of the corruption in the Church. God is going to expose and purge corruption within His Church, and separate the wheat from the chaff…separate His True church from the apostate churches that no longer belong to Him. He is going to expose false prophets and teachers, and wolves dressed in sheep clothing pretending to be shepherds.
In one hour, God is going to change the church. This hour of devastation will suddenly change churches, whether they are alive or dead. Isaiah writes, “There shall be the shaking as of an olive tree.” (Isaiah 24:13) The image is of God shaking an olive tree after it has been picked of fruit. In short, he’s going to shake everything that can be shaken, sparing nothing. It will be a time of cataclysmic destruction and overwhelming darkness.
- Pray for a Great Harvest. It is a call to preach the gospel to everyone, everywhere. Jesus said to them, “Go throughout the whole world and preach the good news of the Gospel to everyone, everywhere. With My authority, take this message of repentance to all the nations, beginning in Jerusalem: There is forgiveness of sins for all who turn to Me. [Mark 16:15; Luke 24:47]
Isaiah 25 tells us wonderful miracles will come in this time, as “God makes all things new.” All around the world, the Lord’s people are going to “feast” on His Word: “In this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.” (Isaiah 25:6) “And He will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations.” (25:7) Right now, in this time of prosperity, the world’s masses seem to be covered with a veil, unable to see the truth of Jesus Christ. But when God rises up to shake the world through judgment, the shrouds covering the minds of billions will be cast aside. The veil of darkness will be removed, and many will see the Lord in His Glory. The Holy Spirit won’t force Christ upon these opened eyes and hearts; rather, a remnant is going to rise up from among them!
And now, Lord God Almighty…bring rains to our drought-stricken lives, so that those who sow in tears, invoking the Lord of the Harvest, will reap with songs of Joy. He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying bountiful sheaves from the harvest with him! [Ps 126:3-6]
Arise My bride, and prepare for battle
There is going to be severe Satanic, demonic attacks against God’s holy remnant of committed, uncompromising, steadfast Christians, pastors, and leaders [not the lukewarm], and against marriages, families, and children. There is going to be severe attacks and intense persecution coming from pretending “Christians” within the church, against pastors who preach the uncompromised Word of God. For the time is coming when people will not tolerate sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching for something self-pleasing and gratifying, they will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. [2 Tim 4:3-5]
Woe to the inhabitants of the Earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short. [Rev 12:12]
Arise My bride, and prepare to see My Face
Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.
The washing of one’s robes and the keeping of one’s garments relates to this very attitude and habit of looking for the return of Christ as an imminent event. Brethren, as you hope to walk those golden streets, and eat of those immortal fruits, see to it that you have your garments clean and your loins girded about like unto men waiting for their Lord. [Seiss…Rev 21:9-22:5]
Make provision for the physical sustenance of your family and yourself [refer to https://preservechristianfamily.org/2017/02/26/brace-yourself-prepare/].
The Lord always warns His holy remnant beforehand, so that they will always be prepared and never taken by surprise like the unbelievers and the lukewarm. Make provision for yourself and your family materially, spiritually, and emotionally NOW for what the Lord is warning will take place, so as to not be overwhelmed by 2 months of severe scarcity, and thereby spiral into debilitating emotional depression! You need to be prepared and available as a minister of the Lord to a dying world: Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life. [Phil 2:14-16]
Paul calls such warnings “light,” insights that expel darkness. He says, in short: “You are children of light, because you know what’s coming in the future. So, when destruction comes, and there’s panic all around, you will have the calm of the Holy Spirit. Something will quicken inside you, and you’ll remember, ‘God warned me.’ This prophecy isn’t a message of wrath to God’s people, but a wake-up call to BEGIN PREPARING .” “God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9–10) Paul is speaking here of a time of possible destruction. Therefore, he says, “Comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.” (5:11)
Abba Father, hear me and answer me, for I am poor and needy! Guard my life, for I am devoted to You! You are my Father; save Your child, for I trust in You! Have mercy on me, Father, for I cry out to You all day long! Bring joy to Your child, for to You I lift up my soul! You are kind and forgiving, Father, abounding in love to all who call to You. Hear my prayer, Father! Listen to my cry for mercy! In the day of my trouble, I cry out to You, and You never fail to answer me! Among the “gods” there is none like You, Father; no deeds can compare with Yours! Hallelujah!
ENDURE TO THE END
Everyone who overcomes by means of their faith…and remains obedient to My will to the very end, I will give authority and power over the nations. Your authority and power over them shall be like that which I Myself have received from My Father.
Friends, brothers and sisters…
There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
