I love the book of Ezekiel. There is so much to learn and understand… so much revelation that the Lord has given us there. The times of the last days are laid out before us and some of this revelation seems somewhat open and accessible and other parts seems to be veiled in mystery.
And say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. Ezekiel 37:21
Sometimes we believe we understand some of the events of the last days because we have studied them so much. Sometimes the Lord has to send clarity to supernaturally help us to understand. I’m so glad He does.
The word of the LORD came to me: Ezekiel 37:15
On January 24th of this year (2017) as I was in my home an angel of the Lord appeared to me in a vision. He was clothed in light and everything about him seemed to convey light. He was about seven feet tall and powerful. His hair was a light blonde color and although I couldn’t tell the color of his eyes, they were also light. He had with him a scroll. He showed me the scroll and told me “Get ready for Ezekiel 38.” I looked at him and said “No… you mean Ezekiel 37.” He responded “No, Ezekiel 38.” And after delivering that message he left.
Almost immediately after this visitation another angel of similar look and stature appeared to me also carrying a scroll. He showed me the scroll and also told me… “Get ready for Ezekiel 38.” I again said to him, “You mean Ezekiel 37.” And he also responded “No, Ezekiel 38.” And after delivering this message he was gone.
And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the LORD. Ezekiel 38:23
This message from the Lord had a considerable impact on me. I had thought for so long that there were events in Ezekiel chapter 37 that had to come to pass before the days of Ezekiel 38 would happen. The Lord through this visitation allowed me to see that the events of Ezekiel chapter 37 are already being fulfilled and He will make Himself known in the sight of many nations.
The time of “darkness covering the earth and deep darkness the people’” is not a time of fear among the children of God. It is not a time of wringing our hands along with the world, but a time of the glory of the Lord being seen upon you. We are in a time and coming into a time where we must shine brighter than ever. We must reveal the truth of the Gospel and it’s power to save. We must rise up and take our positions to do the will of God as He reveals it to us. This will be a time of unprecedented salvations such as no other time in history.
I encourage you to read Ezekiel chapters 37 and 38 and ask God to help you see everything that He desires to show you. You are created for such a time as this! Bless you!
