Preface: In December of 2008 while in prayer the Lord reminded us that He sees everything ahead, and the importance of keeping our eyes fixed on Him, Christ Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. In addition to this He gave me the following vision and understanding of the times we were entering into.
A VISION OF NIGHT VISION GOGGLES:
It seemed we were wearing night vision goggles like those used in the military – as if we were in special forces. It was very dark out and no one else could see, but because we had these goggles on we could see what was going on and what needed to be done.
AS THINGS INTENSIFY:
After having this vision the Lord began to speak to me about things intensifying. He showed me the Church has been in and is entering into a time when things are going to be dark outside. They have been, but we are entering into a time when things will continue to intensify. You will need to see clearly, even though all around you it may be dark and confusing.
THIS IS A TIME TO DRAW VERY NEAR TO ME
This is a time to hear My heartbeat.
You cannot be led by what you see, or cannot see.
But you must be led by Me, you must be led by My Spirit.
As you draw close to Me, I will cause you to hear My voice.
For there is much deception in the land, many illusions.
Many things appear one way, but are really another.
But My Spirit will lead you and guide you into all truth.
You must walk and live by My Spirit, by My Word.
My Word shall be a lamp unto your feet, it shall be a light unto your path.
FOR THINGS WILL CHANGE RAPIDLY
One day things will be a certain way, and another day they’ll change and they’ll be another way.
You cannot make decisions merely by how things look or appear, or even by what you hear.
For that which you see today may be gone tomorrow.
That which you base your decisions on today may be different tomorrow.
THIS IS A TIME TO DRAW NEAR TO ME
You must stay close enough to hear My Voice clearly.
For My Word says that even in these days the very elect could be deceived.
So I’m calling you My children – draw close, draw close to Me.
And let My Word be your compass.
Let My Word be your rock.
Let My Word be your guide.
YOU CANNOT GO MERELY BY HOW THINGS APPEAR
You cannot move by what you hear from the world.
For I see all things, says the Lord
I see the beginning and I see the end.
I see every hidden thing.
I see everything, and only I can guide and walk you through.
Only I can keep you, but you must stay close enough to Me.
MY GLORY WILL RISE UPON YOU
For gross darkness will be on the earth
But My Glory will rise upon thee, and I will cause you to see.
My Glory will rise upon those who draw near, that draw close to Me.
My Glory will rise upon thee.
When it is night and when it is dark outside, you cannot see.
You cannot see the snares or the traps that have been laid out.
But I will give you vision in the night – I will give you Night Vision.
My Word will be that lamp, it will go before you, and light the path, so you can see.
When there’s darkness all around I will be light to thee.
Draw close to Me.
I WILL KEEP YOUR FEET FROM BEING SNARED
For your enemy has set many traps and many snares, and all of them I am aware.
I know where they have been planted.
If you will stay close to Me, and seek Me, and listen to Me, and follow Me, and obey Me,
I will keep your feet from being snared.
SHUT OUT ALL THE VOICES
and let My Word and My Spirit be your guide.
You must cast all other voices aside.
It is My voice you must hear.
it is My voice you must know.
It is My voice that will lead you, and guide you, and show you which way to go.
YOU CAN TRUST ME, I SEE EVERYTHING
I will lead you to the finish line.
It will be right on time, for you are Mine.
You are Mine, you are Mine.
YOU MUST TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY
Your enemy is not playing games.
For he is out to destroy lives.
He is out to destroy My people.
He is viciously attacking them at every hand.
He knows we’re close to the end.
SO TELL MY PEOPLE THEY MUST DRAW CLOSE TO ME
You must draw closer than ever before.
They must abide underneath the shadow of My wings.
There – they will be protected from everything.
There – they can rejoice and sing.
There – they can rest.
NIGHT VISION, NIGHT VISION, NIGHT VISION
Precision and right decisions.
I will give you Night Vision.
I will cause you to see in the night.
You will see by the light of My word and by My Spirit.
You will know where the land mines are, you will know where not to go.
And I will show you where the provision is.
You will see as you stay close, very close to Me.
THEY WILL WALK IN VICTORY
Those who stay close to Me – will walk in and they will experience great victory.
But those who stay distant will not be able to see clearly, and many of them will be deceived.
For they have believed the illusions and the lies.Tell them, not to be moved by what they see or hear.
But they are to be led, by My Word and by My Spirit instead.
MY SONS AND DAUGHTERS WILL BE LED BY ME
Not by what their natural eyes can see.
They must know that I see all things everything, every hidden thing.
And they can trust Me to lead them in the right path.
The straight path, the narrow path – that leads to life.
My Spirit will lead you and guide you into all truth.
So you will know exactly what to do.”
