After the watchman returned from a spiritual journey, he encountered increasingly frequent events and revelations (in signs, visions, dreams and words) that signified the urgency of the end times message to the churches. For example, consecutive visions and dreams were being reported by different persons on brides not having wedding gown even on the eve of weddings, on freezing winter (wherein tropical streets covered by sheets of ice), on angels falling from sky (in modern bikers version) shooting at all, water rising to flood the Holy Land, on black birds swarming in, on foundations built on sand being shaken and swept off, on white horses coming to shore, on toilets bowls being cleansed by red color dyes and red perfume spray, on two brides trying to marry one groom, on bride marrying a groom whom she did not love or even know, on bride already married to One (Christ) but was in the process of marrying another groom because he (the antichrist) was very rich…All these happened within the short span of one month or so.
The latest the watchman himself encountered was two dreams within the span of few hours. In one dream he tried to escape from a gigantic hospital with his wife. The management had replaced an electronic instrument with a newest model. When his wife tried to use her previous version key to operate the system the gadget failed. The doors were all locked. But the wife knew of a way to get out. They went through the labyrinth and got through a series of toilets. The urine were being led through open drains leading to a final collection point. Eventually they reached the last one which directed the collected urine to a large fountain, that opened to an open place like a football stadium! (In the dream the watchman thought this was indeed the most amazing way to conserve water and recycle waste!)
In his second dream, he examined a shop with a few partners. They were discussing the roof when he looked up by chance. To his amazement the roof was full of people. The building was a row of three-storey shops with residents working or living on the two upper floors. the roofs were all slanted and not exactly comfortable for sitting leisurely. But the roofs were full of people in office clothes and outdoor clothes. they were mostly sitting there, jam packed into the tiny space. There was an Indian family with dishes of food in front of them like they were having a picnic. When they saw him looking at them they looked surprised. The others were ordinary people doing their usual activities. Some were standing at the back discussing business.
The watchman has not yet interpreted these last two dreams. He knew in his spirit this is part of the end times message he has been receiving.
Matthew 24:21 “For then there will be great tribulation such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now-no, and never will be again.”
Matthew 24:34 “Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away till all these things taken together take place.”
Matthew 24:17 “Let him who is on the housetop not come down and go into the house to take anything.”
Matthew 24:20 “Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath.”
Revelation 12:9And the huge dragon was cast down and out–that age-old serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, he who is the seducer (deceiver) of all humanity the world over; he was forced out and down to the earth, and his angels were flung out along with him.
Revelation 12:12Therefore be glad (exult), O heavens and you that dwell in them! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in fierce anger (fury), because he knows that he has [only] a short time [left]!
Revelation 12:15Then out of his mouth the serpent spouted forth water like a flood after the woman (Israel), that she might be carried off with the torrent.
Revelation 12:17So then the dragon was furious (enraged) at the woman, and he went away to wage war on the remainder of her descendants (Christians)–[on those] who obey God’s commandments and who have the testimony of Jesus Christ [and adhere to it and bear witness to Him].
Matthew 22:11But when the king came in to view the guests, he looked intently at a man there who had on no wedding garment. 12And he said, Friend, how did you come in here without putting on the [appropriate] wedding garment? And he was speechless (muzzled, gagged). 13Then the king said to the attendants, Tie him hand and foot, and throw him into the darkness outside; there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.
Revelation 19:14-15 And the troops of heaven, clothed in fine linen, dazzling and clean, followed Him on white horses. From His mouth goes forth a sharp sword with which He can smite (afflict, strike) the nations; and He will shepherd and control them with a staff (scepter, rod) of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath and indignation of God the All-Ruler (the Almighty, the Omnipotent).
Revelation 19:17 Then I saw a single angel stationed in the sun’s light, and with a mighty voice he shouted to all the birds that fly across the sky, Come, gather yourselves together for the great supper of God 21 And the rest were killed with the sword that issues from the mouth of Him Who is mounted on the horse, and all the birds fed ravenously and glutted themselves with their flesh.
Verses on “Cleansing”
John 15:2 Any branch in Me that does not bear fruit [that stops bearing] He cuts away (trims off, takes away); and He cleanses and repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear fruit, to make it bear more and richer and more excellent
2 Timothy 2:21 So whoever cleanses himself [from what is ignoble and unclean, who separates himself from contact with contaminating and corrupting influences] will [then himself] be a vessel set apart and useful for honorable and noble purposes, consecrated and profitable to the Master, fit and ready for any good work.
1 John 1:7 But if we [really] are living and walking in the Light, as He [Himself] is in the Light, we have [true, unbroken] fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses (removes) us from all sin and guilt [keeps us cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations].
1 John 3:3 And everyone who has this hope [resting] on Him cleanses (purifies) himself just as He is pure (chaste, undefiled, guiltless).
