I Saw The Face Of The Earth Changing, God’s Wrath

I lay sleepless and horrified, greatly vexed in spirit.  The Lord visited and showed me things that will shortly come to pass.  The judgment and wrath of God will soon bring disaster and havoc to the world we live in.  The die is cast.  God’s clock is set.  Time is running out.

 In a vision, I saw… “I saw the face of the earth and changing the shape of America, it was drastically altered and reduced in size through terrible disasters, hunger and suffering were everywhere.  The devastation caused by volcanic eruptions and fires were widespread and horrifying during this terrible holocaust.  I saw Christians clustering together from all walks of life and many church affiliations.  They did not care about their sectarian doctrines.  The tie that bound them in that desperate hour, was their common faith in Christ.  They clung together as though their survival depended upon each other. 

After these terrifying cataclysmic events, which the Lord showed me, all the evils of sectarianism and apostasy vanished among the Christians desperate struggle to draw strength from one another. 

Those who had been lukewarm, cast aside besetting sins, and sought identity with the true believers.  Cigarettes, pills, social drinkers, marital cheaters, were repented of, and amends were made.  A new sense of values gripped the conscience of Believers.  The “New Morality Standard,” and modern license for laxity was like a remorseful hangover.  Most of the Christians in the visitation “were amazed” that we “were experiencing” the “terrible day of the Lord,” and “witnessing His wrath and judgment.”  Many social Christians were ill prepared.  Their frivolous, unwatchful, imprudent lives had gambled on mercy and grace, which they thought required no reckoning, ever. 

I saw hordes [believers] lost among the religious and Jesus Christ rejecters.  As I looked, I saw where mountains were flattened.  Believers were fleeing to the desert to take shelter in caves and rocks.

The desolation was so terrible that it seemed no one would be spared, Luke 21:34-36 [KJ] — Matthew 24:20-22ab.  All but a few were full of remorse.  Lamentations could be heard everywhere.  It was heartening to observe that during the fearsome disasters; unshakable faith held like and anchor among the Christians.  They knew they would soon see the Son coming in the clouds of heaven and with power and glory. 

After the vision, and recalling with utter dismay, the horror on the faces of unbelievers and their cries of doom still rang in my ears.   At first I thought to keep this experience a secret in my heart.  I shared it with T.L. [the famous T.L. Osborn], my husband.  He was silent, then said, “it’s so scriptural.  It is sure to happen as you’ve seen it… and very soon.”  We decided I should write it.  We must warn the people, as never before.  May God cause you to run with you… Christian witness wherever you can find or visit or gather people who will listen. 

Each hour of each day must count.  Material things are secondary, now is the time to work, to give our time, our earnings, and ourselves.  Time is running out.  “Woe to them that are at ease in Zion.”  Don’t procrastinate!

At the Lord’s return, there will only be two types of Christians, the overcomers or those who have been overcome [prematurely killed].

NOTE:  T.L. & Daisy Osborn were the great “Soul-Winning” Evangelists during the 1960’s – 1985’s, around this time frame. For over a half a century, in 73 nations, they have shared the good news, with pubic audiences of 20,000 to 300,000 people.
