Interesting Insights from Lamentations

I listened to this last night:

It is Rick Wiles from just a few days ago.  Both of the guys he interviewed were interesting.  Anyway, at one point, he references Lamentations so I decided to read it.  I saw some very interesting, insightful stuff.


Lamentations 2:14Modern English Version (MEV)

14 Your prophets have seen for you
    false and deceptive visions;
they have not revealed your iniquity,
    to bring back your captives,
but have seen for you oracles
    that are false and misleading.
Sure sounds like a lot of the mega churches and the prosperity gospel that is still being taught by so many people.

Lamentations 4:6Modern English Version (MEV)

For the iniquity of the daughter of my people
    is greater than the sin of Sodom,
which was overthrown in a moment,
    and no hands were wrung for her.
I bolded the last line because it reminded me of Rev. 18 when Babylon falls and merchants weep and wail – not for the destruction of the people, but for their own loss of $$$ from Babylon because she is gone.  They will ring their hands for their own loss, not for OUR loss.  (I believe the US is Babylon of Revelation 18.)
As we ponder what is coming soon, like the famine, drought, etc., this next verse made my jaw drop:

Lamentations 4:9Modern English Version (MEV)

Those killed by the sword
    are better off than those who die of hunger,
for they pine away,
    stricken for want of the fruits of the field.
Doesn’t that make you think of ISIS bearing their swords and taking off our heads?  As horrid as that is, this verse says we will be better off to go that way than to die of hunger.
These next two verses make me think of the US and how we literally “sold” ourselves to the Middle East for their oil:

Lamentations 5:6Modern English Version (MEV)

We have given our hand to Egypt and to Assyria,
    to be satisfied with bread.

Lamentations 5:9Modern English Version (MEV)

We get our bread at the peril of our lives,
    because of the sword in the wilderness.

So that I don’t leave on such a negative note, here is another verse:

Lamentations 5:19Modern English Version (MEV)

19 You, O Lord, remain forever;
    Your throne endures from generation to generation.

The 9th of Av — Saturday, July 25

The day SCOTUS gave their ruling on gay marriage is the same day in history when Nebuchadnezzar breached the walls in Jerusalem.

Our nation was founded upon many of the same principles in Israel’s history.  So if God brought judgment to the nation of Israel, we can expect He will do the same to us when we have failed to obey His precepts.  This Saturday, July 25, is the 9th of Av on the Jewish calendar.  Let’s take a look at that date in Israel’s history:

9th of Av – the 5th month of the Biblical calendar. 

Regarded as the most tragic month in the Jewish calendar:

  • 587 BC Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the temple
  • 70 AD Rome destroyed the temple
  • 1290 AD Jews expelled from England
  • 1492 AD Spanish inquisition
  • WWI started on that day
  • Hitler’s proclamation to kill the Jews was given on that day
  • 2005 Jews evacuated the Gaza Strip

Now I’m not saying I have received a word from the Lord that something huge will happen on this date.  I’m simply pointing to history and saying I believe something huge could happen on this date.   Saints, we need to be praying!!!!

My Dream and God’s Judgment

I had a horrific dream last night.  At first, I couldn’t even talk about it this morning.  I just wanted to cry.  I knew I needed refresh myself in the Lord.

Once I got before the Lord and refreshed my spirit, He spoke some things to me that I think would be beneficial to all of us to hear. And one thing the Lord knows about me, I don’t want to go through anything difficult and miss what He is trying to teach me, even if the difficult thing is “just a bad dream.”

I was in a very large house — more like a mansion. (Yet we actually live in a 2 BR, 1 BA house, so MUCH smaller than what was in my dream.) I knew we needed to have all the doors, windows locked. I thought they were, but they weren’t. (Now this could actually have to do with something I experienced in real life, but can’t post details.) Anyway, the Lord spoke to me that we all know we need to close “openings” in our spiritual armor. Yet we need to get before Him to allow Him to show us where there might still be openings, no matter how small they may be, then close those openings.

At one point, I was shooting a gun and it started misfiring. As scary as it was in my dream to have that happen, the Lord reminded me that I was not injured during that time. In fact, suddenly, I had a mag that kept firing, w/o ever going out. He gently spoke to me that when we stay grounded in His Word and plant it deeply within our hearts, we can use it as a weapon and it will NEVER misfire. Our spiritual “mag” will NEVER run out of ammo.

One of the things I did while I was allowing the Lord to refresh my spirit was to listen to a playlist on you tube of Harvest.  In one song, it asks, “Are we walking into the enemy’s camp and laying our weapons down?” The Lord reminded me that it is critical to be mindful of our spiritual armor and be more ready to use it than even physical armor/weapons because we ARE living in the enemy’s camp NOW.

The one part of the dream that had me so rattled involved watching iSIS taking my daughter. As I shot the gun, my aim was off. The bullet hit something that caused a wet chemical of some kind (likely gasoline) to cover her. The person I was trying to shoot laughed a maniacal laugh and lit a match. It was HORRIFIC to see it. However, once I calmed down and allowed the Lord to speak to me, He reminded me that I immediately used my spiritual weapons and cried out to Him, asking Him to keep that match from lighting up the chemicals on her. AND HE DID!!! In fact, right after that, she was able to get free. Lesson from the Lord: Don’t ever discount the weapons He provides for us. As important as it is for us to be physically prepared for what is ahead of us, our spiritual preparation is of UTMOST IMPORTANCE.

So while the dream was very disturbing, in reality, God used it as a to speak some powerful things to me.

Later this afternoon, I saw this on Steve Quayle’s site and it resonated with my spirit.  It goes right along with some of what the Lord was showing me I must take very seriously.

I have been sensing the same thing in my spirit, and even more so, once gay marriage got passed.  The walls of our land were severely breached on that day.

Here is another word that goes right along with the above:
