This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Judgement
  • A call to prayer & supplication, Judgment is close.

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; Eph. 6:18

This post is an urgent call to prayer.  I’m not a prophet… and have never pretended to be one. I’m just a watchman, an intercessor. But for many years the Lord has been showing me (as many others) through dreams and the Scriptures that judgment is coming. But this is not just about God’s judgment to the nations, this post is about judgment to His house, because before God judges the nations of the world, He’ll first begin to clean & bring order to His house .

For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 1 Peter 4: 17-18

Last night I had a dream about the judgment that is soon to come, I felt so much anguish trying to warn the people in the dream, but for many it was to late, the people (as well as the church) is distracted, they didn’t want to listen, they were caught unaware,  unprepared, they were busy. The church in general (except for a minority) is busy playing what they believe church is suppose to look like, but it has become a system full of programs and men’s agendas, and many have not noticed that their message is contaminated, that there is pride, that they look and behave more & more like the world, and that God’s presence has already departed from the midst of their gatherings.

Several months ago also while dreaming, I heard the word ‘SOFONIAS ‘ (Zephaniah in Spanish), just the name, it got nothing to do with what I was dreaming at the moment. I remembered when I woke up, but I got busy with my daily chores and forgot about itThen 3 days later, very early in the morning  it happened again, but this time as soon as I woke up, before even making breakfast, I went & looked for the book of Zephaniah, it has only 3 chapters. I don’t remember reading this book before and didn’t know what the book was about.  But it talks about the judgment of God.

Zephaniah means “Hidden in the Lord,  He whom Jehovah has hid” My study bible says that his name is connected with the ministry of Jesus Christ, the ‘Passover Lamb‘, & mentions the Passover in Egypt when God’s people hid in their houses marked with the blood of the lamb while passing God’s judgment (the plagues) on the land of Egypt. (This also reminded me of Isaiah 26:20 &  Rev.18:4).

for when Your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.Is. 26:9.
Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. Isaiah 26:20

The book of Zephaniah calls us to humble before the Lord and to seek God‘s face. But mainly talks about God’s judgment to His people & to the nations. (2-3 Weeks before this dream I had prayed to the Lord for confirmation about a prophecy that I heard, that also has to do with God’s judgment). God tells us that judgment will begin at His sanctuary (Ezekiel 9:6), with the leadership, elders & pastors (Ezekiel 34) that had treated the sheep of God with cruelty for their own gain, and then will clean & purify all His house, and only after that He will judge the nations. God’s judgment to His house is at the doors.

The severity of God’s judgment to His house won’t be exactly the same everywhere, but it will be in relation or according to the sins of that country, (specially the sins of their Christian Church), idols are coming down (money, programs, fake ministries, etc.), but this judgment that the Lord will allow in order to clean His house, will affect unbelievers also, so many people will come to the Lord Jesus during the judgments.

For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. You are God’s Temple.  Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.Worldly Wisdom is Foolishness to God. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s. 1 Cor. 13:11-23

The Lord needs to clean His house first, so His true church will help bringing the last harvest to God before the judgment of the world. We are living in perilous times brethren, very difficult times are ahead of us. It isn’t time to be distracted with temporal things. It’s time to be awake, praying, watching, & with our eyes fixed in our Lord Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.

If you are reading this message please don’t delay any longer, draw closer to God today, confess & repent from your sins, get your house in order, it’s time to learn to be hidden in God (Psalm 91) & pray, but pray with an intense and deep supplication to God in the name of His only begotten son Jesus Christ, pray as you have not prayed before. Pray with you whole heart, pray for everyone the Lord brings to your mind, for salvation, for mercy, for direction, for revelation, pray against the deception in the church & in the world, etc. But mainly pray as the Holy Spirit leads you.

Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation (Strong’s #G3986 = TRIAL), which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Rev. 3:10

 May the Lord bless you & keep you all
