Matthew 10:7-8

"And as you go, preach, saying, 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand.' Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give."

The following is a vision which the Lord gave to me on October 26, 2012 in Ashtabula, Ohio  during an event called "The Wave," which is an incredible night of worship.  It went from being very personal to one that will affect even our nation.   It is one like I have never experienced before.  As this unfolded I could feel the holiness of God.  Somehow I knew that God was allowing me to experience a very small portion of His holiness.  Even with that, my entire being was shaken even to the depths of my soul.  I want to put a picture in your mind right now.  Picture a tornado.  Think of the times when someone has captured a coming tornado on their phone or video camera and you watch it on YouTube,  the Weather Channel, or news.  Now picture the biggest one you have ever seen.  Lock this picture into your mind.

As I was worshiping before the Lord I suddenly saw a great and mighty wind storm coming towards me.  It was massive and dark.  There was great power behind it.  As it got closer I noticed something very different and strange.  The winds were spinning backwards.  It kept moving closer the way a massive tornado always does, but yet the winds were spinning in reverse.  This greatly perplexed me and I asked the Lord, "What is the meaning of this?"  The Lord answered me and said, "Because I am reversing the effects of your sins."  The Lord then showed me that even though my sins were forgiven that over the course of my life the consequences of my sins had at times caused hurt to other people, sometimes very innocent people.  Some of them had been scarred and did not know how to deal with that and still had not forgiven me, nor did they know how.  Some of them don't understand the nature of God, but now in His time of mercy He is beginning to reverse the effect of my sins.  Healing will replace scars.  That is the one thing that stood out during the entirety of the vision.  I heard those exact words over and over and over, spoken to me by the Spirit of God.

As I stood before this mighty wind suddenly it began to move and I watched it move quickly over distances and towards different groups of people.  They were like remnants and wherever the wind went and wherever it stopped, God made it clear that He was beginning to reverse the effects of the sins of those people.  The Lord showed me that these remnants, these groups of peoples were ones who had chosen to pursue Him with their very lives.  People who were now determined to release the things of the Lord to those around where they lived.  People who would use spiritual force to cripple demonic powers running throughout their corner of the nation.   I was reminded of Jesus' words in the Gospel of Matthew, "From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force."   The rule and nature of God; the Kingdom of Heaven.

As I watched this wind moving I was allowed to see what was within the outer winds.  I saw a portal; an opening that reached into the heavens and came down to the earth.  The center, this opening was being protected by the thick walls of the outer winds.  Within this portal I saw agents of heaven (those are the words which which were revealed to me..................agents of heaven) coming down and going up.  There were many and they moved continuously and were passing each other almost as if there were ladders taking them back and forth, and the agents of God were planting in the earth the righteousness of God.  I do not know and could not see what that looked like, but I knew that it was the righteousness of God.  It was planted so that in a specific season as people passed unknowingly by where the righteousness of God had been planted, they would find strength and be fed.  Many will suddenly experience God and it will be revealed to them exactly who Jesus was and is.  They will shake and be changed by the righteousness of God.  Many will fall down and be terrified because of the holiness of God.

 Suddenly, I noticed that after coming upon these pockets or remnants of people that this great storm of wind would sporadically change direction.  It followed no consistent pattern and would quickly change from one direction to the other.  I could not predict where it would go next.

I was totally caught up in and captivated by what I was seeing.  I was aware of my surroundings, my son next to and the worship music, but was unable to think, nor did I want to think of anything other than the Lord and what He was showing me.  As the vision ended I realized that I had not absorbed the entire revelation.   I believe that there are still parts which I don't understand,  but in the moments that followed God did begin to reveal more to me.   I knew that I was not to keep this vision only for myself and that I was to somehow share it and I was able to do that in the moments that followed.  As I stood waiting to attempt to even try to come close to describing what I had seen, the Lord reveled some very specific things.  When I woke up this morning there was even more understanding.

While this vision, at the beginning was very personal, this vision became one for all  to hear and was meant to used as a prophetic word for the nation.  I was so caught up in the tunnel of wind and the agents of heaven that I didn't realize, but now know that when the wind began to make drastic changes in direction that it was moving from state to state and was penetrating the nation.  As I stood waiting to share, I once again  heard the Lord speak.  "I AM GOING TO BEGIN TO REVERSE THE EFFECTS OF THE SINS OF THIS NATION."  I became very aware of how multitudes of people have been scarred by the sins of this nation and many just don't know what to do with those scars.  There were two giants that were highlighted to me, although there have been many sins of the nation.  The two giants that were impressed upon me were ABORTION and PORNOGRAPHY.  These two sins alone have released hounds of hell to gut this country.  But, today I find peace and rejoice in knowing that the Lord is going to now begin to "reverse" and bring healing to people who have been scarred by these sins.  As I shared last night I was reminded of the verse in Joel 2: 25.  "So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten..........."  Abortion and pornography can certainly replace the words "swarming locust."

For my many friends who do not live in the United States, there is no reason for you to feel  excluded from this vision.  God intends to bring justice and healing to all the nations.  I knew that God was pushing me to tell right here of what I had seen.  God knows how people around the world keep reading and stumbling upon this blog.  That tells me that God intends to take this great storm or tunnel of wind to the nations, so wherever you are stand, watch and be ready.  Share the  good news of Gods mercy to those around you.  Be the messenger of the cross that He has called you to be!

As I prepare to close, if there is nothing else that you remember about what I wrote today, you need to remember these words:

                                           There will come a day when the Lord reminds you of those very words.  While God's grace is revealed day by day, there will come a specific time when we see this taking place in masses of people and very quickly.

Shalom my friend,
Mark S.
