"What in Heaven is going on?"

That is what I have been asking now for 3 months.  Have you ever been there?  Have you ever felt like you was in the dark?  That things are happening all around you and you sometimes feel like a person in a foreign land and no one understands you language?!!?

Well, that is what I have felt for 3 months.  I realize that what I'm about to say will be very controversial.  What I'm about to say, I feel in my heart that the Lord would have me to say.

For 3 months, we have had, what I would call, a real crisis in our White House.  I have been praying for the President as I know the Lord would have me to do.  I also have been praying for the truth to come out and for the Lord to have His way.  For His will to be done.  For justice.

Yesterday, as I sat and watched all that was going on in our country, I finally broke!  So, I said "Okay Lord, I can't take this anymore!  Tell me "what in Heaven is going on!""  As I sat and watched the tv, Jerry Falwell appeared.  He was being interviewed and I heard him say that President Clinton would not be allowed to take communion in his church either.  He expressed his disagreement on what the President has done.  I stood up and said, "Praise God!! Finally!!  I finally hear a religious leader taking a stand!  Praise God!!"  I realize that Pastor Falwell will take alot of hits for saying what he said.  But, I respect the man for at least taking a stand on what is right and what is wrong and denouncing the wrong.  There may have been other religious leaders who has come against the sin, but I haven't seen them on tv.

That has been a cry of mine.  Where is the religious leaders in this world?  Where is the outrage for what is going on?  This country is suppose to be 75% Chrisitan......where was the outrage?  Who are those that they poll anyway?  Why am I never called to be polled?  I hear that the economy is the best that it has ever been, but yet I hear big companies laying people off by the thousands.  Why are these people never polled?  How do they look at the economy?  I hear that the economy is so good, but yet I see that it takes both people in a marriage to make ends meet.  How do they look at the economy?

I see children killing children.  Then I hear how it's damaging to "spank" a child.  I wonder which is worse, no "spanking" or discipline or letting the child "express itself"?  What has this kind of thinking and rearing our children gotten us?  We see where those parents that choose to discipline their children, get arrested and their children taken from them.  Then we see those parents that truly "beat" and abuse their children, let go until death comes to the child.  Almost daily I am hearing where a child either assaulted a teacher, or is holding people hostage, or killing.  "What in Heaven is going on?"  I asked the Lord.

Things are going so good, things are going so bad!  With all due respect, I asked the Lord this: "Lord, I don't mean no harm, I mean nothing bad, but if You have things in Your hands, it doesn't look to good.  What are You doing about this Lord?  Lord, things cannot keep going this way.  Criminal acts going uncharged and waxed over.  Children killing children.  Economy good, but thousands getting laid off and still takes 2 people to make ends meet!  "What in Heaven in going on?"  Tell me!!"  My frustration very apparent.  Praise God that He does know my heart and know that it's the situation, not Him that is frustrating to me!

In my despair over this situation, the Lord finally answered.  He quietly whispered...."In the day's of Noah.........".  I was taken to the book of Matthew.  Matthew 24:36-38:

36: " But of that day and hour no one knows, no, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only."

37: "But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be."

38: "For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark."

Then, I was reminded of the book of Isaiah.  Isaiah 5:20:

20: "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;  Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;  Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"

Yes, I remember now.  There is a time to come when good is called bad.  The bad is good.  This is making sense now!

Then, the last thing that was brought to me was the book of Luke.  Luke 21:25-28:

25: "And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;"

26: "men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of heaven will be shaken."

27: "Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory."

28: "Now when these things BEGIN to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near."

Then, it was extremely clear!  Our redemption is drawing near!!!  So, I said "Lord, thank you for revealing this to me. Thank you for allowing understanding to come.  I hate the sin, but not the people.  We have nothing to fear and justice will be done.  I pray for those that are doing the injustice's Lord.  Save them.  Let them repent before it is too late and they will be held accountable for those things.  They need You Lord."

Then, it rose within me.  This is what the Lord said:

"What in Heaven is going on, you ask Me?  You forget that I have all authority.  You have awaken!  I AM what is going on in Heaven!  I am preparing for my bride.  Your redemption is near.  Look up.  I'm coming for my bride.....that is "What in Heaven is going on!"

We must pray as we should.  Do what is right.  Pray for our country and President.  Pray like you have never prayed before!!!  Read the Word and pray!  Be instant in season!  Be looking and waiting for a opportunity to share and minister!  We truly don't have alot of time left!!

We truly are living in exciting times!  We are seeing prophesy unfold before our very eyes!  We are seeing the Heaven's shaking!

Rejoice Church!!!  Arise!!  Awake yourselves!!  We are so very, very near to our "catching away"!!!  Get busy about your Father's work!  Do not delay.  Our redemption is very, very near!!!!!!

Praise God!!!!
