Smelling Smoke: God’s Supernatural Warning

(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?

This is


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.

Choose carefully.

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.


Fellow blog readers. I have seen video testimonies of hell. I initially considered posting them here but am not prepared to do so, yet. For this tender heart, they are simply too graphic.

Know this:

The theme of this blog is to provide Encouragement & Inspiration for Everyday. I have shared this post because NOW is the time for each of us to take responsibility for our eternal destination.

Whether the “End of Days” happens next week, or decades from now The Lord has pressed upon me the URGENCY to get this out. The message falls under both categories of Encouragement & Inspiration.

BE Encouraged that God has not sent his judgement – yet. But BE INSPIRED to make use of the TIME that is LEFT to turn toward him and ACCEPT his GIFT of GRACE.

Eternity is a very long time. It is not a place you want to spend ANYWHERE but in Heaven. Think carefully about this…

I am emotionally exhausted from writing this post. If even one person gives God a chance from this blog, I will have accomplished His purpose.

If you have not been SAVED or have never ACCEPTED Jesus as your Savior: START with this PRAYER:

Heavenly Father:

I pray for your mercy on my soul.

I am a sinner and I need a Savior. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God. That he died on the cross and shed his blood for my sins. I believe Jesus rose from the grave by the power of the Holy Spirit and He sits at the right hand of God

Jesus, I ask that you come into my heart and wash all my sins away. I ask you to send the Holy Spirit to live in me and guide me. I will follow you the rest of my life.

Your Word says that ALL

who seek you will find you.

Help me, Lord. Save me, Change me, make me NEW.

I ask this in the name of my Lord and my Savior, Jesus. Amen.

Be sure to get to know God, a little everyday. Give him just 10 minutes of your time – and read the bible when you wake up. Make this your daily “first fruits.”

The following video is the Testimony of Bill Wiese: It runs about an hour. It is about his visit to hell.

23 Minutes in Hell

Closing Note of Engcouragement:

(The second most important blog post may also be (so far) the least read thus far. It is in regards to the soon coming Holy Spirit Outpouring. It will give each of you extra encouragement after having read Smelling Smoke.)

– May The Savior Bless All who visit this page and all associated posts.

Above all things: Clothe yourself with God’s Armor – Eph 6:10-18 – and learn about the Power of Jesus Blood.

May all of God’s Blessings and His protection be yours.

I look forward to Meeting each of you on the other side of the Veil!

  1. This is good! I too have smelled things that were not there. It was explained to me that these were Rhema scents. The most recent scent for me was the smell of blood. At first I was not sure what I was smelling then I realized it was blood. I was not bleeding nor was anyone near me. I could smell it when I was a t home and I would smell it when I went to church. When I asked God why was I smelling this, He answered me with ‘Only the blood of my son can one be cleansed, and there is power in His blood, you can smell it because you are in His presence’. I admit that I preferred the smell of gardenias that I used to smell even though I had none in my yard or anywhere nearby, hearing this message from God, made this scent beautiful to me. ( I know sounds gross ) I am happy for you that you have had this experience.


  2. I too have smelled smoke from time to time and so much that I have gotten up and checked for a fire. I never really thought to much of it after thought other than I thought it was odd, but now after reading your post I most likely will think more about it! We do have an urgency though to get the message about salvation out whether he comes back now or in a long time plus people die every second and we never know when that is coming. Great message, you do speak truth and people need to hear the truth, and sometimes truth is hard to hear.


  3. I have also….and walked around the house. I did however have an occasion to rise at 4 am choking ..but this time it was only neighbors ..yes at 4 am…but I digress…The times I have smelled – it was alarming. I wondered if it was wiring in the house….I haven’t smelled it for a while now..but this is very interesting…and yes…the news this day and enough to smell smoke on the horizon.


  4. Dear Kenzel,
    Thank you for sharing this serious message. I admire your obedience to the Lord and am touched by your compassion for the lost. I do hope fellow Christian bloggers reading this will feel moved to pray for the hearts of the unsaved to be softened and receptive to the gospel message and that they will acknowledge Jesus as the only way to eternal life.

    I hope God will raise up intercessors to faithfully stand in the gap for these places where Judgment is scheduled, and cry out for his mercy, so that destruction may be averted (like Nineveh).


    • Thank you for the encouragement @ladycee.
      I hope for the same.
      I was touched by a similar message yesterday while cleaning and I haven’t readied myself to sit down and type that parable yet.

      I need to get back to writing the memoir…He brought my attention to Deut 1:6 today via another blog.
      Facing our giants is not easy.

  5. Kenzel…I have had that happen to me and I searched high and low for the source and nothing. The last time it happened was a few weeks ago at work. I could smell it so, I even called the engineer to investigate and she said, I don’t smell a thing. So, of course, I felt ridiculous, but I knew what I was smelling. God sure is warning us, preparing us, and for those that don’t believe or won’t repent…how do we handle them? I ask this of Him all the time. Are we to be relentless with them? I pray on this a lot. What should You have me do God? You’re not alone Kenzel, we are with you, especially God!
    I admire your obedience to God. Share, share, and share!!

    • Andi,
      I really appreciate you sharing this. The smoke smell continues to “come and go” for me as well. Most recently, last week. When it happens, I need to ask what he would have me do (other than recognize his previous message.) Thank you for your encouragement, but I feel like I am stumbling. He started me blogging here 2 yrs ago (I cannot believe it’s been 2 yrs). Then, He set me to task months ago to write my memoir. It is started but each time I attempt to return to it there is warfare. I do not want to be disobedient; but, I’ve allowed myself to get distracted. I know God is faithful – check out this post. How He works is just crazy cool!

      • When I’m using it, it works well. It’s essentially a digital 3 ring binder. More efficient than a regular word processor. I put stuff in notebooks and now can’t remember which ones! 😦
        I’ll check that out!

      • I get it, I really do. But I had to fellow writers read a scene or two and tell me I needed to keep going. Writing those sections were healing but doing so thru tears is really tough and exhausting.
