Am I strong enough?

Last night I watch Glenn Beck. I always watch Glenn Beck. My husband can't miss him. But, last night while watch him, my spirit became unnerved. My thought was, I'm leaving the room. I'm never watch him again. But, I realized that it was my spirit that was unnerved, so I started to pray.

It is rare for me to lose my spiritual piece. I have been in some strange situations, but, my peace is usually with me. But, last night, it was gone. I started to ask God what is going on. I felt such dread. Keep praying, I told myself.

Now, I don't get visions, or words about end time stuff. Just don't. Never really thought much about going there, even though I believe time is short. But, last night, I believe God was warning me & I need to tell you.

When I finally escaped the room & got silent with God. I pleaded that He led me know what was wrong with my spirit. I asked God "Is your hand slipping off of the United States?" Then in my minds eye, I saw a city. This city was in ruin. It was burning & the walls falling down. I was so taken back by this that I let the picture go. But, then another came. I saw evil. A huge presence of evil lurking over the United States. It had freedom to move. There was no restraint on the evil.

Several things came to me after this vision. Can this be stopped? A friend told me once about a man, I can't remember his name, who is a prophet. When he would get a vision of the future, he would have people pray against it to stop it. When it would stop, he would be called a false prophet, because it did not happen. Can we pray against this vision of my & stopped it. Probably not.

Some things are set in stone. The Word of God tells us what will be in the end of age. There will be no stopping it. Are things in motion for the end of age? God says, we will know when the time is near.

Mark 13:30-33
I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 31Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

The Day and Hour Unknown
32"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.

So if the vision I had is about these signs, then praying will not stop it.

The other thought I had was about my unrest in hearing these things on Glenn Beck. I began to seek the Lord about my spiritual strength. I started to question whether I could hold on to my faith in these horrific times. The answer? I don't know. But, out of this vision, I do know what I need to pray for. Strength!

I realize that part of what I went through last night, was so God could get my attention, and show me that vision. But, the other is I need to do spiritual calisthentics. Build my faith. I should never stop building my faith. The things that we are about to encounter will need faith "larger than a mustard seed." I am weak. I thank God that he showed me my weakness & now I can build my spiritual muscle to be able to endure.

There are times I think I must be the crazy one, because there are so few of my fellow Christians who seem to share my awareness of the late hour we're in.

In fact that is sometimes a (false) comfort to me, because I'd really very much like to be wrong about this.

But for about 3 years now I have not been able to shake the impression (and yes, dread) that we're on the last lap. "Preparedness" has been my thing during that time, even though I am aware that it is impossible to fully prepare for the scope of what is coming, and my only real refuge is in Jesus and his ultimate promises. But working on preparedness at least eases my sense that I need to "do something" ahead of what is coming.

Though it is not as I would wish it to be, I appreciate your sharing these visions, as they confirm my own impressions. Praying for strength. Praying for a full measure of the oil of the Spirit to keep me through the night.

desert cat,
Even those who do not believe are now believing that something is wrong & about it happen. You are right, so many of God's people do not seem to recognize the sign's of the time. Complacency seems to be the new order of the day. I, will not be complacent. Like you, my husband & I are now beginning to prepare. God is good. I pray for our strength in these times.
