Jeremiah 25:34 ~
“Wail, you shepherds, and cry; And wallow in ashes, you masters of the flock; For the days of your slaughter and your dispersions have come, And you will fall like a choice vessel.”
I was feeling agitated this morning, without any reason I could see. As I was driving into work, I heard the Holy Spirit say in my spirit:
“THE SWORD OF DAMOCLES IS HANGING OVER YOUR COUNTRY.”
I knew that was referencing something I had read back in grade school (late 1960s/early 1970s), when I read a lot of Greek and Roman mythology. I vaguely remembered that story. I didn’t remember the name of the person in that story, so wasn’t sure if I “heard” correctly.
Side note: yes, I was a nerd back in grade school (and still am a nerd); I had frizzy reddish hair, blue cat eye glasses, freckles, was fat, read a lot of books and loved going to school (yep, a nerd).
Anyway, I called my brother James, (AKA, JCSouthwest), which I frequently do on my 30 min drive into work. I shared with him how I was feeling a bit agitated this morning, but didn’t know why. He shared an odd thing he kept hearing last night, that only a former main frame computer geek would understand (yes, I know, “spoiler alert”). Please see link at the bottom of the page to go to his blog and read his warning Word from the LORD; it’s a confirmation to my post.
Please note: the Scripture reference at the beginning of this post was what the Holy Spirit highlighted BEFORE I read my brothers blog post.
After he shared with me, I asked him to look up “Sword of Damocles”. He told me when he typed in “Sword of . . “. The first thing to pop up was “Sword of Damocles”. James then shared info he found.
The Holy Spirit got my attention. What did that phrase mean to the United States? I had to do some research and the following is what was highlighted by the Holy Spirit:
“The “sword of Damocles” is a modern expression, which to us means a sense of impending doom, the feeling that there is some catastrophic threat looming over you.”
When I searched the Scriptures, which I always do for confirmation on posts, the following verses from Ezekiel are what the Holy Spirit led me to read and use (see below). AND know this: we are being warned yet again about JUDGEMENT upon the United States that has ALREADY started with the hurricane in Texas. The “warning shot” was the Solar eclipse that went over our entire country.
READ AND WEEP IN REPENTANCE, FOR JUDGEMENT IS UPON OUR LAND:
Ezekiel 5:11-17 ~
So as I live,’ declares the Lord God, ‘surely, because you have defiled My sanctuary with all your detestable idols and with all your abominations, therefore I will also withdraw, and My eye will have no pity and I will not spare.
One third of you will die by plague or be consumed by famine among you, one third will fall by the sword around you, and one third I will scatter to every wind, and I will unsheathe a sword behind them.
‘Thus My anger will be spent and I will satisfy My wrath on them, and I will be appeased; then they will know that I, the Lord, have spoken in My zeal when I have spent My wrath upon them.
Moreover, I will make you a desolation and a reproach among the nations which surround you, in the sight of all who pass by. So it will be a reproach, a reviling, a warning and an object of horror to the nations who surround you when I execute judgments against you in anger, wrath and raging rebukes.
I, the Lord, have spoken. When I send against them the deadly arrows of famine which were for the destruction of those whom I will send to destroy you, then I will also intensify the famine upon you and break the staff of bread. Moreover, I will send on you famine and wild beasts, and they will bereave you of children; plague and bloodshed also will pass through you, AND I WILL BRING THE SWORD ON YOU. I, THE LORD, HAVE SPOKEN.”
I’m ending this post with the following plea:
PLEASE get your life right with the LORD. REPENT, where you need to repent. FORGIVE all who sin against you. Humble yourself before the Holy Heavenly Father, Creator of Heaven and Earth. Make sure you KNOW the KING of kings and LORD of lords: Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ). AND get ready, for in the midst of the tragedies, that’s when souls will come into the Kingdom of Heaven . . “For such a time as this.”
