RIDING OUT THE TIDAL WAVE
In the early nineties, I had a dream of a huge earth quake shaking the East Coast. Buildings were falling all around me. In the midst of all this devastation, I saw coming in from the Atlantic ocean a humongous wave. It was a tsunami. I cried out to the Lord, " Jesus help!". As soon as I did, I saw the front door to my house floating by. The Lord told me to get on it. I obeyed. Then, I found myself standing on the door, riding the wave like a surfer. I felt safe and secure, capable of riding out the storm. I woke up.
"Lord," I asked, "what was that all about. What do you want me to know?"
The following thoughts quickly came to my mind. The earth quake was the breaking up of America's morals as a nation. The tsunami following was a sprue of filth. Porn was rapidly spreading throughout the land, the occult was openly practiced , homosexuality was respectable, abortion was exceptable and atheism was becoming a religion. Weather patterns were changing causing much destruction. More judgement was coming to the church. She would be shaken to the core, separating Her from the world to be a Light to the Nations. It is coming true.
" Lord, thank you for the door to ride out this storm. You are the door." My thoughts went to Noah and the ark and how the Lord protected him from the flood. For 120 years the Lord tried to warn the people to repent, but they refused. Only Noah and his family survived the judgment.
"Jesus said, As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.( Matthew36-40 ) The world at that time was wicked and no one worshiped the true God except Noah. In the days and years ahead, Jesus is our only safe place. The Lord is the the Ark. Jesus is the door to the Ark.
"Truly, truly, I say to you. I am the door of the sheep. All who come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I AM THE DOOR. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pastures. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly" John 10:7-10
