I never thought of myself as a preacher of judgment. Of course, I have preached and warned of Hell. But, I’ve never been someone to declare God’s judgment every-time there was a hurricane, sickness, or earthquake. Nonetheless, My spirit man has been on full alert in 2020. I’ve never really been one to panic, or quickly consider end-time scenarios. Still, I truly believe Holy Spirit has been heightening my senses. Something timely and prophetic is afoot. I believe we are seeing a form of judgment in the earth right now.

Sin has consequence. And beyond the natural, logical repercussions, there are also instances of calculated renderings from the gavel of God.

Our God is a just judge.

He is certainly a God of love, grace, and mercy. Yet, The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom (Prov. 9:10a). And there’s that time that Jesus… “Making a whip of cords, he drove all of them out of the temple, both the sheep and the cattle. He also poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables.He told those who were selling the doves, ‘Take these things out of here! Stop making my Father’s house a market-place!’ – John 2:15,16

But, let’s look at judgment more personally. Jesus came here to go to the cross (suffering). And he invited us to embrace our cross.

The early church suffered, endured, experienced tribulation ( 1 Thess 1:6), were sometimes beaten, imprisoned, martyred, and exiled.

When Christ taught about the coming days, His bullet points were warnings. When John had a revelation on the isle of Patmos, God highlighted sins and shortcomings in the churches. This included warnings of judgment.

Also in Revelation, God revealed a time of coming trumpets, judgments. The New Testament speaks occasionally of coming wrath—which believers will be rescued from.

Before that, there will be an apostasy, which I believe is a turning away from the true Gospel, to a re-imagined, deconstructed, progressive gospel that exaggerates grace, removes sin, and eliminates Hell. It is here.

I also believe the man of sin, the lawless one, the chaos factor, the wrecking ball, the son of perdition…is among us.

The earth is groaning and I am convinced we have been experiencing Matt 24:8 “But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.”

The current time of judgment is a trembling in the land and on the people. Its like the temperature is rising toward a boiling point.

Many people can believe in judgment as long as it is something that will happen in tomorrow, but not ever…

However, Christ was broken and spilled out. And He called us to follow.

There is great, intentional mystery concerning the end. We are not at the end point (2 Peter 3). Nevertheless, we are accelerating toward that hour. We are in the hastening. Things are happening. Prophecies are being fulfilled.

We can probably see our moment of judgment hinted at in 2 Peter 2. Here, we see false prophets. Hence, We are reminded of when God released judgment in Heaven against His angels, and on Earth against His creation. The chapter then shows a separation happening between the godly and the unrighteous. This is speaking of our time.

It is similar to the parable of the sheep and goats in Matt 25. Judgment sifts and separates. We are in this kind of judgment right now. The separating.

Matt 3:12 His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his threshing floor. He will gather his wheat into the barn, but the chaff he will burn up with unquenchable fire.”

The harvest is ripe. The separation is becoming clear. Amidst deception, strong delusion, false prophets, and false versions of everything holy, there is a tension in the air.

We are not in control. This is God’s hour. We would be wise to draw as near to Him as we possibly can.

Amos 8 happened around the time of harvest. The vision was a bowl of ripe harvest fruit. Yet, there was a famine in the land for hearing the true word of the Lord.

In Judges 6-8 the Midianites would attack at harvest time, pilfering all of Israel’s goods. Their is a tension related to harvest. That’s what you’re feeling.

The harvest is a time of judgment. The good is brought into the barn. The bad is tossed out. The tension and warfare surrounding the hour of harvest and judgment is upon us. The sifting and separating is underway.
