My Hiding Place
Dear brothers and sisters,
Let me tell you what the Lord has downloaded into my spirit earlier today, April 7, 2021.
This morning the Lord woke me up at 5:17 (I had gone to bed past 2AM as I was fully immersed in the Word of God and in the Lord’s revelations). I am not a morning person by any stretch of the imagination. But I felt in my spirit that I had been woken up to pray and intercede for my family. So, I obediently went downstairs and took time to repent on behalf of myself and my family, to pray over my family members, to ask the Lord to show Himself in tangible ways and to draw them closer to Him. I spent some time in the Word. Then, I eventually went back to bed.
When I got up the second time, I prayed over my day for the Lord’s guidance (which is what I do daily before stepping out of my bedroom) but I really wanted the Lord to confirm why I had been woken up early. When I finished praying, I asked the Holy Spirit what He wanted me to do next and I heard Him saying, ‘read My Word’. I looked over, on my night table. My Bible had a pen between 2 pages, but it was opened in a different spot. I pulled it up close and read, Lamentations 2:19, ‘Arise, cry in the night, as the watches of the night begin; pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord.’
Thank You, Lord for Your confirmation!
Then I went downstairs for breakfast as I continued to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit ministering to me. He said, ‘Today is Ezekiel 9 day. Weep and wail for the day of reckoning is here.’ As I heard those words I was suddenly taken by grief. I couldn’t finish my breakfast as I could hardly hold back my tears. Instead, I made my way to my secret place and got on my knees and I read through Ezekiel 9. Please take time to read the full chapter. In essence, we are told about 6 guards each with a deadly weapon and a man dressed in linen wearing a writing kit by his side. The man with the kit was asked to go through the city and mark on the forehead all the people that were grieving and lamenting over all the detestable things that were done in it (verse 4). Following this, the other men were instructed to go through the city and kill ALL those who did not have the mark on their foreheads. Verse 6b) BEGIN AT MY SANCTUARY.
People of God, please take heed today to weep and wail as you repent and intercede on behalf of your families, friends, neighbours, acquaintances, your country. For the day is here when those who are found complacent, indifferent, unaware, sinful will miss their marking on their foreheads and will condemn themselves to the slaughter just like in Ezekiel 9. Yes, the Lord is gracious and kind, full of compassion, not wanting anyone to perish. But He is also a God of vengeance, of justice, of righteousness and He will not delay to bring upon us His judgment. Continue to fast and pray, stay in His Word, weep and wail before the Lord and ask Him to have compassion so that you may be counted worthy to escape all that is about to take place on the land.
Luke 12:38 It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night.
Lamentations 2:18-19 The hearts of the people cry out to the Lord. O wall of the Daughter of Zion, let your tears flow like a river day and night; give yourself no relief, your eyes no rest. Arise, cry out in the night, as the watches of the night begin; pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord. Lift up your hands to Him for the lives of your children, who faint from hunger at the head of every street.
May the name of the Most High be praised forever and ever!
