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!

When the Lord first told me to share the revelation He had given me... I said "Lord, can't I just tell a few "normal" angel stories?" He said "No. You have to share everything."
Well.... I do have a couple kind of "normal" angel stories as well. Here is one from the book Angelic Visitations.
Angel Over the Mall
My wife Gordana used to work at a shopping mall about twenty minutes from our house. One day I borrowed her car to use for the day. I figured that I would just pick her up at the end of her day. The only variable was, if my wife had more clients or customers show up even after I got to the mall, I would either have to wait for her or leave and make a return trip.
So of course this day was one of those days. I had actually gotten to the mall about a half hour early and then when I got there I found out that my wife had just committed herself to two more hours of work. So I was looking at a two and a half hour wait. I didn’t really want to drive home and waste the time or the gas. I didn’t really want to hang out in the mall for two and a half hours. You can only cruise the food court for free samples so many times before they start looking at you funny. What to do?
I suddenly got a brilliant idea! Why don’t I do a prayer walk around the mall! That would kill a lot of time and I would actually be doing something useful, changing the spiritual atmosphere. So I set out on my prayer walk. I walked around the interior of the mall praying out loud in tongues, walking sometimes into stores and sometimes not. I sang in tongues a lot because it’s a way of praying that makes you look like less of a nut. People sing right? Well after one lap I still had loads of time so I did another lap. After the second lap, I still had a lot of time so I decided to move my prayer walk to the outside of the building. I then walked around a large portion of the outside of the mall. I didn’t realize until I began walking that it would be considerably more walking! But I had committed myself. I walked around the mall and made it back to the main entrance, a little tired but spiritually refreshed to be honest.
I still had about twenty minutes of free time so I headed to the food court. I figured I could use the facilities and also get a little nourishment. After using the facilities and washing my hands, I walked out into the food court portion of the mall.
As I walked into the food court, a handsome young black man in his mid thirties approached me. He smiled and held out his hand and shook mine and said “I want you to know that I appreciate your being here today.” I was a little confused. Revelation was not instant but there was something about the way he spoke that carried something more. Then he spoke again, but this time to my mind and all confusion was immediately cleared up. He said “I am the angel over this mall.” Then he turned and walked away.
I was so glad I listened to the Lord’s voice and did the prayer walk! I will be honest and tell you that I have since done many more prayer walks at the mall, but have not seen him again. But I know he sees me! And more importantly the Lord sees!
