Be Not Terrified!

Testing 1 2 3

By now many of my readers probably know about the nationwide Emergency Alert Test that was originally scheduled for today, September 20, but has been changed to October 3.

If you have not heard of this or want to know more, simply go to In a nutshell, it is supposed to be a simple test of their systems and “no action is required”.

What is interesting to me is that this “Presidential Alert”, as it is referred to, is to be conducted 8 days after President Trump is scheduled to speak at the United Nations this coming Tuesday, September 25. If the President does indeed announce his Middle East peace plan that day, our nation will very soon afterwards suffer dire consequences; in other words, a real national emergency. I and many others have written on this subject before (go to Time to Focus! Mega Quake BEFORE the Rapture? for related links).

Dire Consequences?

God warns in His Word that the land of Israel belongs to Him and that there will be consequences to those who divide it (Joel 3:2). Example after example of this is cited in the book Eye to Eye--Facing the Consequences of Dividing Israel by William Koenig.

Koenig had this to say about that week of August back in 2017 when Jared Kushner and his team arrived in Jerusalem and how it related to the resulting unprecedented storm such as we have never seen the likes of before in human history—Hurricane Harvey:

"...The timing of White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner, Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt, and Deputy National Security Advisor Dina Powell meetings in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Jordan, Egypt and Israel and the rapid reformation of Harvey when it looked like it was finished as a tropical threat was awe-inspiring. 

On Wednesday, August 23, the day that Kushner, Greenblatt and Powell arrived in Jerusalem after three and a half days of nonactivity, Harvey quickly became a tropical storm and within 48 hours a major record-setting category 4 hurricane. Much of Jared Kushner and his team's schedule the weekend of August 20-24 ... were somewhat secretive. I had to review some of the Arab news websites to establish the schedule. 

The bottom line, Kushner's week was focused on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. It was a serious effort on behalf of President Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, hurricane Harvey became a major record-setting category 4 hurricane that pummeled southern Texas Friday, August 25, and into the wee hours on Saturday morning ..."

. . . Newscasters have called Harvey a once-in-500-years storm. Fox News called it a once-in-1000-years storm. . . [Excerpt Why is America Suffering?]

The impression in my spirit is that instead of peace and security coming to America when our President announces his Deal of the Century, what is coming is—as David Wilkerson put it—"a tragic earthquake”:

The United States is going to experience, in the not-too-distant future, the most tragic earthquake in its history…I am not at all convinced that this earthquake will take place in California. In fact, I believe it is going to take place where it is least expected. (The Vision and Beyond by David Wilkerson, page 28. Also available at PDF.)

Many who have been watching for the Resurrection/Rapture will be dazed and wonder why they are living through such a thing! [Excerpt from Time to Focus! Mega Quake BEFORE the Rapture?]

About a week after writing the above article, I heard this prophecy through Charlie Shamp, someone whose prophecies have been reported as being proven:

I saw two E's resting over the earth: earthquakes and eruptions. We have entered into a time of spiritual and natural earthquakes and eruptions where the spiritual will be paralleled by the natural.

It will be a time of great rejoicing for some, but great sorrow for others. Great grace will be needed by the Church during this time to walk in the days ahead. The choice of desire will be handed to nations, sealed for a time and season. . .

I heard the Lord say, "There will be sizable shakings of the ground in 2018. Natural earthquakes will greatly increase this year across the nations, but so too will My glory."

I could see and feel major shakings coming in the earth physically on a much greater level than we have seen in the past. I could see great shakings that moved the ground in the natural. It was a massive force that caused the soil to be moved. I could hear people saying, "Why has this happened? Why has this earthquake come so that the soil of our country has been shaken?" I looked to the mountains and they were quaking and all the hills moved back and forth. I looked again and I saw other nations and they were shaking with Revival, Renewal, Resurrection and Restoration. [Excerpt from Elijah List]

Be Not Terrified

When asked what the sign would be of His Second Coming, Jesus spoke of a grand convergence of wars and earthquakes being indicators of the Tribulation and marking its beginning.

But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end [is] not by and by.
Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
And great earthquakes [megas seismos]  shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. Luke 21:9-11

Notice His exhortation— “be not terrified”!

Let us remember that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but that we have the SPIRIT OF CHRIST within us that is a spirit of POWER, LOVE, and a SOUND MIND (2 Timothy 1:7)!

If you will allow me once again to stand with you, brethren, as a spiritual doula, I wish to exhort you—if my impressions are correct and we experience this earthquake here in America before the Resurrection/Rapture occurs, be not terrified! It is still “false labor” and the Tribulation or Jacob’s Trouble has not yet begun!

Some women get a couple of strong contractions as a warning that labor is imminent, and they rush off to the hospital (if they opt for that instead of home birth) only to be sent back home. THIS IS WHERE WE ARE.

The earth is going to experience one maybe two strong contractions—earthquakes—BEFORE actual LABOR/TRAVAIL/TRIBULATION begins. [Excerpt from Time to Focus! Mega Quake BEFORE the Rapture?]

They Shall Know Us by Our Love

For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
Isaiah 60:2-3 KJV

When this prophesied quake occurs, it will be a time of darkness not just in America, but in the world. Christ came for Israel, but before He came the world was engulfed in deep darkness. Thanks be to God that His Light also shone upon the Gentiles (Isaiah 42:6) so that now all those who have Christ within them may also manifest that Light and manifest His Love!

I sincerely believe that those who are tuned into the Spirit of the Lord will rise in that hour and shine resulting in many giving their hearts to the KING of Kings.

Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. - John 13:33-35 KJV

Another informative post Lyn. A thought came to me as I was reading the part about the possible quake happening but not to fret because its not yet the tribulation!,.....Well for the 1st time ever I said to myself, ''humm, I wonder if the HARD LABOR equates to the 3.5 year "GREAT' TRIBULATION" {Time of GREAT DISTRESS} portion of the 7 year Tribulation which begins in the - middle - of the 7 yrs. at the time of the AoD. Have you ever considered that as a possibility? Grace n Peace Always / Shalom

Ozark, thanks for your comment and for posing a thought-provoking question. It is interesting that the First Stage of the Three Stages of Labor is the longest and that its last phase is the "Transition Phase". This is when labor intensifies markedly as the cervix dilates from 7 cm to 10 cm. It is the hardest phase but also the shortest! It could very well be compared to the Abomination of Desolation event that introduces the last half of The Tribulation, called in the Scriptures, The Great Tribulation period!

The Second and Third Stage of Labor is shorter than the First Stage which would match Matthew 24:22:
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

interesting response Lyn, thank you! Perhaps the Great Trib is the 2nd phase and the 3rd and final phase is a smaller portion of that Great Trib?, like for example after Gods WRATH[the bowl Judgements] are poured out; known as the vials, I believe!? in which case I can't help but wonder if that is the actual time of Jacobs Trouble - that will actually cause them to mourn for Him that they pierced, and REPENT!/////// be blessed sister - on my way to read you latest post now, Thanks again for sharing all that you do...., Shalom

Thank you again, Ozark, for going deeper into the analogy. You may be right. Your further digging has caused me to think more on this subject as well resulting in my October 9 article:
