The Coming Judgment
I saw a mighty black-brown hand from a little above the wrist up to the fingers. It looked a little withered around the wrist area and looked like it had been dipped in fire. It came out of the sea, somewhere neither too close to the beach nor too far into the body of water itself. There was quite a few persons walking along the beach, or maybe they were all I could see.
The hand began to pick them up and fling them away. Some of them died terribly due to where it threw them (there was a young lady who ended up impaled by a spiky tree branch) while others were just flung so far away it would take them a very long time to find their way back to where they were supposed to be.
I had the impression these people were Christians and that the hand was going after Christians specifically. I noticed that this event lasted for a brief period of time.
The Bible says in Revelation 17:15 that the waters speak of peoples, nations, multitudes, etc.
I believe it speaks of a time following this season, when a system (or systems) is (are) going to arise from among the peoples and nations of the earth and will go after the church with an intention of causing death and damages. It would seem so glaring that the intent is to kill the church. It would be fierce and fiery. It would be a very humbling period for the church of God. This probably is what the black-brown colour of the hand implied. Black meaning death; brown meaning humility\humiliation.
However, this period would not last very long. Let’s not forget that a day with the Lord is like a thousand years (2 Peter 3:8 Psalm 90:4).
As the interpretation came to me, I got that the five fingers of the hand represent five continents that would really be in the heat of this. In fact, I heard, “Five continents, excluding Asia.” I do not know the reason for the exemption. It also came to me that the five fingers also represent the five ‘organisms’ that would be used to achieve this:
1. Thumb – Government
2. Index finger – Family
3. Middle finger – Finances
4. Ring finger – Weather Storms; I had the impression that other physical\natural disasters were in this category, even though all I could see was a very thick, black weather storm.
5. Little finger – Religion
These, I believe, would work together with the unity that five fingers have in a functioning hand. I also had the impression that they were the five stones our David (Jesus) will use to bring down the giant called Impurity, a giant that seems to have been defeating His church for a long time.
Moreover, I remembered that a day or two ago, I had been led to read the story of Jesus’ cleansing visitation to the temple in Jerusalem (John 2:13-17). After this I had seen a smallish human-looking creature with five upper limbs. It was in fact a human being, but it had a hump back with 3 extra limbs.
I knew it was related to the story in John 2:13-17 and its application in this season but still could not tie it up properly.
I think those five limbs are analogous with the five fingers in today’s vision and what they represent. The fact that the limbs are from a humanoid being probably makes it a more sordid point that these five weapons will emanate from peoples\humans\nations and their systems.
Why all of this? Why the Christians? It is because the time when judgment must begin in the House of God is here (1 Peter 4:17).
In addition to this, I had the impression that the rest of the Christians in the world who may not be affected by this event at the time, while trying to intercede for their brethren all over the world, they will present a petition similar to what is in Luke 13 and the Lord will give them just the same reply:
There were some present at that very time who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And he answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered in this way? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them: do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who lived in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:1-5)
It crossed my mind to ask when these events will begin to unfold. Almost immediately, I heard that I should add up the numbers in ‘2021’.
It appears to me that the message in it is that these 5 fingers will begin to manifest in 2021.
Now, to the most important point of this vision: I took special note of the fact that the Christians that were walking along the beach (where earth/land and water meet) were the ones being attacked. I heard that these people are regarded as Amphibians: animals that survive both on land and water. Walking along the beach (being amphibious) could be interpreted to represent any or all of the following:
Lukewarmness: Jesus promises to vomit everyone in this category in Revelation 3:16. In fact, I could conveniently say that the manner in which that hand was throwing the persons away is worthy of note.
Double-mindedness: James 4:8; James 1:8
Trying to eat from the Lord’s Table and from that of devils at the same time: 1 Corinthians 10:20-22
Trying to obtain a dual citizenship: This is wanting to be a citizen of the Kingdom of Light and Love, without first denying your citizenship in the Kingdom of darkness – Ephesians 5:1-8, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.
Pretence, Hypocrisy, trying to blend in. When you’re with Christians, you put on the ‘Christianese’ mask and just blend in. Then you go out of the church and behave just like an unbeliever; you also want to be amongst them – James 4:4-8.
Putting your hand to the plough and looking back: Luke 9: 62
Trying to gain the whole world and your soul at the same time: This is when you live in the deception that you can gain Life without losing life, without laying down your life – Mark 8:35-37
When the person is not single eyed in the pursuit of God but trying hard to serve God and Mammon at the same time. Matthew 6:22-24
It is somewhat obvious that Jesus would rather that we were far pushed into the land/earth (earth is brown, pointing to humility) or that we were even drowned in the waters, than to live ‘amphibiously‘. Yes, He would rather that you treaded His exemplary path of humility (Philippians 2), even the humility that leads to death (that is true Christianity!) or be drowned with the world. Be humble in this way, ahead of time or wait to be humbled by His coming judgment. Remember the brown-black hand.
Choose a side! Choose a side!
No dual citizenship. No Amphibians are tolerated! No sitting on the fence – it belongs to the devil. Sitting on his fence only qualifies you for the punishment that awaits those who are in his camp. Judge yourself now, choose which side you belong to, or be judged with the world! (1 Corinthians 11:31-32).
The judgment from the hand from the sea manifested in either of two ways for whoever was its lawful prey:
Death: This judgment will not only result in the physical death of many of these persons, but sadly, I believe it will result in their spiritual death. They would become so given to blindness, folly, hardness of heart and deception.
Being thrown to a faraway place: This judgment will, of course, cause a lot of physical and geographical displacement for so many of them. However, there is the spiritual dimension to this. The judgment may result in some of these people being thrown away to faraway dry places in their relationship with God, such that by the time they are restored, it would have cost them a lot, even up to their inheritance in the Kingdom. They will eventually be restored, but remember the parable of the prodigal son – Luke 15.
This is a call for every Christian in every place to reposition themselves on the right side of God while they still can. They must now kiss the Son, lest He be angry (Psalm 2:12).
Bringing all of these back home, I think this also came as a warning to us to watch out that we are not living like amphibians in this season where it may feel to some of us as a time to be finally ‘free’ from supervision. We must check ourselves to ensure that we do not have any of these things listed above in us, because we will not for any reason be exempted from the coming judgment. If anything we, of all people, should know how much we would qualify for more than enough beatings.
None of us will admit to wanting to end up spiritually dead or lose their inheritance, but what happens when our actions and attitudes speak otherwise? Let’s REPOSITION ourselves as well.
