Get Ready it is Time

Last Thursday (7-23-15)after spending much of the day in the Word I felt a little tired and so I did what anyone who is feeling tired would do. No I did not take a it was too late in the day for that. I decided that I would go to Jessie Street Java for a nice coffee. I actually have been slowly brought into a whole new world of coffee since they opened shop in Rushford and it is mostly enjoyable. I ordered a caramel something or other that I can't pronounce and sat down to do a little light reading. At least that is what I thought I had come here to do, instead as soon as I had sat down and taken the first sip of caramelly goodness I felt the Lord impress upon me to pray in the Spirit. So I did that quietly under my breathe. I must have prayed for only a few minutes when suddenly God started to show me a vision. I the vision I saw a space shuttle that was upright and appeared ready for take off and as I looked closer I saw flashes of light spark out from the bottoms of the rockets followed by a mass of smoke and great shaking and rumbling. This quickly panned out and changed to a large plain. I looked at the ground I could still hear the rumbling and noticed that I could feel the shaking too. I looked up and as I did I saw the sky was filled with rolling clouds and I could see the same flashes of light as I did with the rocket only now they were the lightening in the clouds. I could feel the thunder as they were approaching it seemed to get stronger and stronger. I then looked back down to the ground and noticed that there were train tracks going through the plains and as I looked I could see that they were shaking and suddenly I heard a loud whistle of the train. The Lord then said to me "Do you know and understand what this is I am showing you?" I answered as only I felt I could and told Him I am not sure, but you know Lord what is this that You are showing me? He simply spoke to me this, "Get ready it is time." After praying about this I feel that the Lord is speaking to "get ready, all aboard, it is time to prepare, for the time of shaking is at hand and those who are not with the Lord will be sifted like the dust of the plain because they have no root. But those who are prepared for the coming of the storm will not fear the wind because they are rooted in Christ Jesus. I believe that God is saying that the time for the shaking is at hand. 

 “For thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; 7 and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations,[b] and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the Lord of hosts. 8 ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts. 9 ‘The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘And in this place I will give peace,’ says the Lord of hosts.” (Haggai 2:6-9)

I believe that we are at a time where we are to get our ducks in a row spiritually speaking. God is telling us that as the world around us is growing darker and people are not only accepting all sorts of twisting of scripture, but pretty much mandating it. We must not, those who are His must stand. We must stand because when He starts the shaking it is only those who have prepared that will be able to stand. Nothing is going to replace the real intimate relationship with Jesus when He returns. Nothing. If we memorize the Bible yet don't know Jesus we will fall in the shaking. Now is the time to intercede, now is the time to get on our knees, now is the time to KNOW Jesus. It is better to be weighed and found wanting now than in the here after. The King is coming soon and I can feel the shaking of heaven and earth as He approaches. "Get ready it time".
