Vision of the Last Great Outpouring

This is a follow-up post to A Vision of Tribulation and the RaptureI do not wish to teach anything unbiblical, nor do I want to be a stumbling block to anyone. I had no understanding of these things before the Lord showed this to me in a series of visions and revelations by His Spirit. Please read this prayerfully. I am a man, and I can make mistakes. However, I have yet to disprove any of this from scripture, but I have found many things to confirm it. I would not be posting this if I was unsure about what the Lord showed me. There are other things He has shown me I have yet to understand, but these things were made very clear to me. Trust the Spirit in you.

The Lord continues to give me details about near future events. The constant themes in all these encounters are the need for humility in the Body of Christ, the urgency to prepare for the great tribulation and a changed perspective on God Himself.

            We are far too familiar with a God we barely know. The revelation of Jesus Christ to the world is at hand, and no one is ready for what is coming. Truthfully, no one will be. The mystery of the gospel is being revealed in all its manifold glory, and we are privileged to participate.

These things came to me over several days in August 2021. Here are the few things I am clear about.

            I had seen glimpses in my Spirit of a huge being that was human-like but shaped a little different. He held what appeared to be a big bowling ball hanging from a thick short chain. I realized later this being was an angel. He was very thick and wide with a round muscular belly. He held the chain a few links from the end in his left hand at about waist level. With his right hand, he held up the other end of the chain with the big ball about shoulder high. He was swinging it back and forth. Thick billowing smoke poured off the big ball as he swung it back and forth.

This image kept coming back to me for days. Every time I would go to pray, I would see it for a few seconds, but it was like looking through some filter that made things blurry and nondescript. This blurry filter, combined with the thick smoke, prevented me from seeing many details. Then, the Lord told me to read over Revelation again. When I got to Chapter 8:3, my eyes were opened.

Revelation 8:3 And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer, and he was given much incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar before the throne, and the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose before God from the hand of the angel. Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on the Earth, and there were peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake.

            As soon as I read this, the Lord gave me an understanding that it was this angel I saw in my vision. I then had another vision and got a clearer glimpse at this angel. This time the blurry filter was off, and I could now see everything in color and clarity.

This angel is a big fellow! I could not estimate his height reasonably because there was nothing familiar to compare it to. Still, a conservative guess would be 8 to 10 ft. tall, possibly much taller. He was thick and wide, heavily muscled, and barefoot. He was bald and had an enormous round belly corded with muscle but not shaped exactly like a man. His skin was glowing white and reflected the fire from the alter. For some reason, I noticed he didn’t have a belly button either. As soon as I thought that, I understood that a belly button is the mark of a son of man. DUH!

            He was dressed only with something around his waist that looked like a bronze colored kilt with wide gold trim around the waist and bottom. It was pleated and fell just below mid-thigh. The ball and chain I was seeing was the golden censer. At first, I couldn’t see that it was gold or had a hole at the top because of all the smoke pouring off it.

            The angel was standing before a long wide alter with burning coals in it, and the angel would keep leaving and returning. When he returned, he would walk behind the alter and hold up the smoking censer, and the Father would smell the smoke. I couldn’t see the Father’s face, it was somehow obscured, but I could tell what He was doing.

         Somehow, I knew that the censer contained specific prayers for the last great outpouring, as we call it. Heaven calls it something else, but I have yet to discern what that is. The censer had to be filled until it gave off a specific aroma. I am not sure what smell God is looking for, but I understood that the scent also has a particular name. He kept smelling it every time the angel would bring it back, testing it, like a chef would taste a dish to see if it is just right. I knew by the Spirit that this is what is happening right now, in Heaven, as I write this. December 2021. Then I saw the future.

            God smelled the censer, and it was finally pleasing to Him. He gave the big angel a command which I did not understand. The angel then stepped up to the alter and dragged the golden censer through the alter, scooping up hot coals. The censer was now on fire and was no longer smoking. It looked like it was dripping with lava.

The angel then turned and squared himself off, looking at the Earth. The view was similar to what the Earth looks like from the moon, only closer. With one big swing, the angel threw that censer at the Earth. When it hit, it exploded into many little balls of fire covering the planet. As I watched these little fireballs be distributed around the Earth, He showed me what this means.

          The little fireballs from the exploded censer are specific anointings or mantles. This is not an outpouring of the Spirit as we would understand it and it is not like any “move of God” previously known. These mantles are specifically for the empowerment of the Elect. The Elect being all those alive during the great tribulation. These mantles are the lavish gifts He pours out on the bride just before she meets the Bridegroom.

God showed me that this is the same thing Abraham’s servant, Eliezer did for Rebecca before she was presented to Isaac for marraige.

         There will be so many of these mantles on the Earth that not even half of them will be used or even needed during the great tribulation. It is just more of God’s extravagant love poured out for us. Many will pick up a mantle, use it for the purpose God intended, then pick up another. Some will carry many mantles. Each time a person carries a mantle, the mystery of the gospel becomes clearer to them and clearer to all they minister to. The fire from these mantles helps to reveal the mysteries of who God is. His character, His great love, His divine purpose.

God is beginning to do this with apostles and prophets worldwide right now in a measure. Still, using these mantles brings a much clearer and more precise revelation of who He is. Words can’t describe some of the things that will be revealed.

          The Lord showed me that all these prayers in the golden censer are being prayed the best we know how as we are shrouded in smoke. The smoke represents deception but also represents divine mystery. The smoke keeps getting thicker and deeper. Overall, prayer gets less and less effective throughout the Earth, yet with God’s help, we somehow successfully invite Him to His own Son’s wedding. He keeps smelling the invitation (smoke from the censer) until it has the aroma He likes, and then He “RSVP’s” with the mantles. I laughed out loud and cried for joy when He showed me this.

          You have heard the expression, “where there is smoke, there is fire?” The Lord showed me that much smoke means the fire is going out (much mystery). He reminded me of Isaiah 42

“A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench; He will bring forth justice for truth. He will not fail nor be discouraged, Till He has established justice in the Earth; And the coastlands shall wait for His law.”

          Just like I couldn’t tell what the great ball and chain was because of the smoke, the Church doesn’t know who she is because the fire is going out and she is shrouded in smoke. The gospel has been shrouded in mystery because of doctrines of men, doctrines of devils, and the preaching and teaching of a self-serving gospel. We have all been guilty to some degree. We have become an itchy-eared, divided people. Every denomination is foolishly prideful of its doctrines and practices, while thinking less of those with other beliefs. We are working against the very Peace of God that brings the unity of faith and strengthens the body of Christ.

          The Church is almost entirely unaware of her blindness, but the lights are getting ready to come on!

          One of the constant themes that keeps getting emphasized to me in these encounters is that none of us understand but a little piece of this great mystery. I was so broken when God began revealing to me the errors in my beliefs and the doctrines that I was taught and defended for decades. I felt like I had been deceived, and I had, by my own heart. I saw the error and arrogance in myself and the Church. At first, I despised those who taught me and held them responsible for my twisted beliefs. It turned my world upside down for a while. Then the weight of what He was showing me humbled me to tears and repentance.

          I now see that the one issue God was putting His finger on was my pride and the pride of the Church. It is the unpardonable sin spoken of in Mathew 12, which we have all misunderstood. He has had his finger on that passage for years, trying to get me to see. I couldn’t see for the smoke. In these encounters with the Lord, He has given me an understanding of the unpardonable sin, which I will write and teach in detail very soon.

          Unless pride is dealt with, we will not be able to function with kingdom authority on the Earth. There will be no rewards for any accomplishments for the prideful at the judgment seat of Christ. This is what He meant when He said this sin would not be forgiven in this age or the age to come.

          God actively works against pride, and no matter how glorious our accomplishments for the Kingdom, if we don’t sanctify Him during those accomplishments in the sight of people, we will be lightly esteemed in His sight. This happened to Moses, preventing him from entering the promised land on Earth. It keeps us from the full authority of the Kingdom of God on Earth. Oh, we are citizens of the Kingdom and have kingdom rights, just no authority to speak of.

          It hit me when the Lord showed me the mystery of the seventh trumpet. I realized how prideful I was, defending a pre-tribulation position that was a plan of Satan to render much of the Church ineffective in the great tribulation. I saw that man’s need to be “right” can make him miss righteousness altogether. I noticed that when I am conscious of the failings and sins of others, there are things in my heart that are not right.

Without humility, the smoke gets really thick! So thick that we can look into the mirror of God’s word and not be able to see ourselves clearly. Pride puts a smoke screen on the mystery of who we are in Christ.

          We can no longer allow ourselves to stumble over what people are “not.” We must celebrate who God created them to be and teach them to embrace that reality. We must honor their journey and help them along the way. We can’t do it with finger pointing and blame shifting. Only loving God and people with our lives and sharing the truth of who He is will set people free, and we can’t even do that unless He helps us with it.

          These are some of the things I am clear on. Time will tell if I am a false prophet or not. The time is short, so we will know soon.

Truth about the Rapture

         As far as I can tell there are only four passages in the bible that teach us plainly, openly, and directly about the rapture so I am only going to use those four.

        The first of these passages is found in Mathew 24.

This is Jesus talking. Red letters in my Bible. I think He is the highest authority qualified to teach about the rapture. Pay attention to the text.

Matthew 24:29-31

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

          Look at the opening phrase of verse 29. “Immediately after the tribulation of those days…”  Jesus is speaking to His disciples, and the Church, about what we will experience and go through before we (the Elect) are gathered from the four winds, or as we like to call it, “raptured.”

          Just to make sure we understand what Jesus is referring to when He said, “the tribulation of those days,” we will read everything in chapter 24 leading up to verse 29 so we are clear on what tribulation Jesus is talking about.

Matthew 24:3-28

As He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains.

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. 10 And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. 11 And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. 12 And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. 15 “So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let the one who is on the housetop not go down to take what is in his house, 18 and let the one who is in the field not turn back to take his cloak. 19 And alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days! 20 Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. 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. 22 And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. 23 Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand. 26 So, if they say to you, ‘Look, he is in the wilderness,’ do not go out. If they say, ‘Look, he is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 28 Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.

          I am not sure that I could help by elaborating on the stark clarity of the above text. However, I will make a few comments. In verse 15. The abomination of desolation spoken by Daniel standing in the holy place. This I believe is an obvious reference to the antichrist and his actions after his rise to power. After his rise to power, vs, 21 says there will be great tribulation, and those days being shortened for the elect’s sake. False prophets trying to lead astray the Elect. This sounds like tribulation to me. I know some pre trib doctrine say that the “elect” are the 144 thousand, and that is true but it is also the church He is talking about the ones chosen for the high honor of living in this extraordinary time.

Lets look at the other verses.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-12

Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.  (Note: We are going to see this great falling away and the Anti-Christ and his abomination of desolation with our eyes!) Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming. The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, 10 and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, 12 in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-17

Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him, we ask you, brothers, not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. (Note: according to Paul, the “the coming of our Lord, our being gathered to Him, and the day of the Lord” are the same day.)

But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. 15 For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.

1 Corinthians 15:51-52

Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.

          These last two passages speak about a trumpet blast but 1 Corinthians makes it clear WHAT trumpet. Is it the seventh trumpet in Revelation 11? Or is the trump of God different than the seven trumpets in Revelation like many of the pre-trib doctrines try to explain away? It is The LAST trumpet! Meaning there will be NO OTHER TRUMPETS AFTER THIS ONE. PERIOD! So, this is CLEARLY the seventh trumpet in Revelation 11. If it is not, then the trumpet would have to come after the seventh trumpet or it would not be THE LAST.

         To even start believing in this foolishness we first had to learn it from another man. Maybe a pastor, or some teacher we trust, we just didn’t learn it from the bible. No matter what theological gymnastics we use we can’t get around this being the Last Trumpet. We can use other passages of the Bible to imply or infer a pre-trib rapture, we can even try and project or convey our interpretation of prophecy onto these text, BUT WE WILL NOT FIND IT IN ANY TEXT.

We must strengthen ourselves for what is coming. We will not escape tribulation.
