(Note: This blog post has been the most widely viewed on this site since The Lord directed me to start writing it back in 2009.
The initial draft of Smelling Smoke was written in 2015/16. I am brought back to update it – 6/4/2018 because there are important things that those who are truly following Yahushua need to be aware of)
I am and have been smelling the scent of smoke since last week. I don’t know exactly when that started.
It has been brought to my attention that I need to address this.
Many of you will be tempted to say, “hey…it’s just someone burning something outside or a neighbor’s fireplace or a wildfire somewhere.” I thought the same thing too, at first….
To be honest, I was so unnerved by the smell last week – because it LINGERED — that I stepped outside to investigate to make sure something wasn’t on fire nearby.
The sky was clear and blue. The air was clean. I could breathe in deeply and not identify a “whisp” of it outside.
The weird part is, NO ONE ELSE around me smells it. I do not smoke. My clothes do not smell of smoke.
So, I brought up what I was experiencing to a number of bloggers and much to my surprise, I wasn’t alone in having this experience.
That’s when I took this to God.
Me: Lord, for days now I’ve been smelling something like smoke. I don’t know why. I don’t smell it outdoors. Though it comes on softly, it magnifies so that it takes over my olfactory senses, makes my eyes burn and water and even an itchy sore throat with mild burning and a mild cough. I don’t feel sick though. What does this mean?”
He wasted no time with the Revelation.
I am providing you with a supernatural indication of my grief and the destruction that is coming. What you are smelling is the impending smoke of destruction from the Seal Judgements as mentioned in Revelation 8:4-5. My Children need to understand that The Great I AM is not bound by time. I work outside of the Time-Space Continuum with which you are accustomed. (2 Peter 3:8)
My heart grieves for what has happened to America.
My people will not repent.
They have turned their back on me. Rather than take time to Seek ME and The Ruach (and listen for my still, small voice) in the quiet and stillness – they seek their next “thrill”…be it sports, movies, or lusts of the flesh.
The smoke each of you is smelling serves as a DOUBLE WARNING:
First, it is a warning of MY promised destruction against those Nations, Tribes and Tongues that do not adhere to the Commandments of Exodus 20 and
SECOND – that those who are following MY Path (the narrow road) WILL themselves, lose their life to save it.
If you reject me, – the smoke you are smelling will be the fires of hell that consume those who (sadly) turn away. If you DO ACCEPT me, the Smoke you are smelling is the Fire of Testing and Tribulation you MUST face in order to be counted worthy …
I AM THE Living God. But you have an adversary who desires to cause your defeat.
If you are living and breathing right now, there is no gray area. You HAVE to decide between Living in Paradise or Hell. You ultimately make the decision about your eternal destiny.
What does that mean?
People do not believe that I Am who I say I Am. Who Do you say I AM?
People do not believe my Word is Truth. Do you believe what my Scriptures say?
If you spend enough time on this blog that I directed my Daughter to start, you will see snippets of how I have worked all things for her good. I do this for ALL MY Sheep. (John 10:27)
That being said, My Scriptures specifically indicate that as the hours move forward that things will begin to happen in the earth (in divers place). (Matthew 24:7)
It is for this reason that I have told you before, that in order to endure what is ahead EACH of YOU must pick up your cross. You do this IN ORDER to be SAVED from your hour of tribulation. (Matthew 16:24-27) I will be even more specific. There has been a “teaching” in the “church world” about something called a Pre-tribulation rapture. If you truly study MY WORD – including the Old Testament – you will find many flaws in this theory. The teaching of a Pre-Trib rapture is one of the aspects of living IN THIS World that will lead up to: “The great falling away…” (2 Thessalonians 2). I plead with you to pick up your Bible and get acquainted with The God of Creation- The God who CREATED YOU!
So, consider this your “Wake Up” Call.
Time is not endless. And each of you living – here and now has a purpose.
If you are SMELLING SMOKE. I am calling you! I am telling you that if you are WILLING – ACCEPT ME as YOUR Savior and I WILL walk you through your HOUR of TESTING.
I tell you this because I have a plan and purpose. My plans may seem to be delayed, but they are not. (Matthew 25)
Return to My Word and understand that just as Ecclesiastes declares that to every season there is a purpose; a SHAKING is forthcoming. The “Smoke” that you are smelling/sensing is my way of showing you IN THE SPIRIT just HOW real what’s to come really WILL BE.
EVERYTHING that happens on EARTH must first manifest in The SPIRIT (Heaven.)
Do not question who – I AM – is.
Do not think I do not see what is happening. I created the Earth and everything in it.
Be wise — WAKE UP — Repent.
Seek Me: NOW. Before it is TOO LATE.
Above all, remember this. You have a choice between HEAVEN & HELL.
How do you know if you will make it to HEAVEN?
HAVE YOU accepted ME?
Have YOU Repented?
YOUR Eternity hangs in the balance. YOU make the ultimate decision.
Hell is real. Many of you are “of this world” and have chosen to postpone really thinking about what’s “beyond the veil” of THIS LIFE.
Whether you want to believe Hell exists or not, is up to you. But I do not want you to end up there. Hell is just as REAL as Heaven.
NOT choosing – is making a decision.
PUTTING off the decision to ACCEPT me IS also actually making a choice; because your days are numbered.
Seek ME = Heaven
Turn your back/Reject Me = Hell
I gave you the privilege of FREE WILL. Chose carefully, chose wisely. I want to share Eternity in Heaven with you.
