In this video, I want to share a picture God gave me regarding His soon coming. It’s both comforting and terrifying. Comforting if you are safely abiding in Him but terrifying if you are not. It’s a picture of God as a hurricane and this Almighty Hurricane is coming very soon. Let’s get into it.

In December 2020, I was lying on my bed, thinking about God when suddenly, I got this picture in my mind which, in my spirit, I knew was from the Lord. 

The picture He gave me was this: It was a picture of God’s power coming to earth as a massive hurricane, with incredible winds swirling around in total destructive force. Yet, inside the hurricane, at the very center, literally in the eye of this hurricane, stood a house, standing in total safety and peace. For this house and for the people inside the house, it was a beautiful day. The sun was shining and everything immediately surrounding the house was completely tranquil and at rest. Yet, at the very borders of the property, literally as close as at the end of the driveway, a massive windstorm of a hurricane raged.

It was devastating. Everything in the path of these incredible winds was destroyed. Nothing survived. There was complete destruction and a wiping away of everything that stood in it’s path. Still, just feet away, in the eye of this hurricane, not even one leaf on the trees next to the house was blown away. 

That’s when I felt God say to me: So it will be in the end. Those who abide in Me and seek Me for their peace I will protect, even through trials and the terrible tribulations and destructions that are coming upon this world.

The message is this: God is a hurricane and He’s coming very soon. Get Ready!

Along with this picture, Psalm 91 was brought to mind. When you look at Psalm 91, it describes this very picture. First, it talks about those who choose to live in the eye of this hurricane, abiding with God in the center of His will.

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and buckler.” (Psalm 91:1-4 ESV)

In the midst of the destructive hurricane that is coming during these final 7 years of tribulation, those who choose to abide closely with God will find refuge and will be shielded from the destructive winds. God pictures Himself as the Faithful One Who will protect. God will be their Fortress and Deliverer. They will not fear, even though they are close enough to the winds swirling around them that they can witness the destruction nearby. 

“You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.” (Psalm 91:5-6 ESV)

Notice that what is coming upon this world will be a time of terror, where arrows are flying by day, which to me indicates warfare. Then at night there is pestilence, literally plagues and diseases, a destroying pandemic, if you will. And this last phrase, “the destruction that wastes at noonday,” is very foretelling. The word for “destruction” in Hebrew is the word “qeteb,” (pronounced keh’·tev), which literally means, “cutting off, a storm causing destruction.” And the word “waste” in Hebrew is the word, “shuwd,” which means “to ruin, to devastate, to act with violence, to lay waste.” It is a picture of God coming with great force, violence and power, devastating and laying waste everything in His path. Psalm 91 continues by describing how near this destruction will be, as well as God’s faithfulness:

“A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked.” (Psalm 91:7-8 ESV)

Notice here God’s protection of those who are abiding in Him. The destruction that is coming will be extremely close by, with a thousand falling by your side and ten thousand as close as your right hand. In this picture God gave me, the destruction is literally at the very end of the driveway. That close! But God promises that it will not come near you. Why is that? Psalm 91 tells us:

“Because you have made the LORD your dwelling place– the Most High, who is my refuge– no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent.” (Psalm 91:9-10 ESV)

The key to safety in this coming tribulation is to make the Lord your dwelling place, your refuge. The Hebrew word for “dwelling place” is the word “ma`own” and it was often used to describe the very temple of God, the place where God dwells. If you choose to make the place where God dwells your dwelling place, then no evil shall be allowed to befall you and no plague will come near you. Psalm 91 goes on to say that for those who choose to place themselves in the center of God’s will, in the very eye of this hurricane, God will grant supernatural protection.

“For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.” (Psalm 91:11-13 ESV)

Did you know that you have angels assigned to you, to protect you? God is not idly standing at a far distance, watching your life go by with indifference. He’s engaged in your life and is fighting for you, with His angels to protect you and to draw you into His safe dwelling place. God wants you to be in His safe keeping.

Why does He do this? We can say that it’s because of His righteousness, His faithfulness and His great power. But really, it comes down to love and God loving His children, those who choose to make God their Father.

“Because he holds fast to Me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows My Name.” (Psalm 91:14 ESV)

Do you know God by name? His Name is Jesus. Can you say that you hold fast to Him in love? If so, God promises to protect you. That doesn’t mean that you will not experience trials or difficult situations. But it does mean that you will not be destroyed by them and that God will help you through them. And it does mean that you will not be harmed by the destructions that He Himself is about to send upon this world.

When we turn to God, believing that Jesus, God’s Son, died to pay for our sins and that only through His death and resurrection are our sins wiped away – only then do we become part of God’s family and can call upon God as our Father. What father would not protect his children? God is the perfect Father who loves His children. As His children, Psalm 91 concludes by telling us that we can call on Him for protection and He will not only hear us, but will deliver us.

“When he calls to Me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him My salvation.” (Psalm 91:15-16 ESV)

Notice that this psalm does not say that trouble will never come, even if you are living in the eye of this great Hurricane. But it does promise that when trouble does come, God your loving Father will be there to rescue you, honor you, satisfy you and save you.

I said the key to safety in this coming tribulation is to make the Lord your dwelling place, your refuge, so that you dwell in the eye of this Hurricane when it comes. In the time that’s left in this video, I want to look at how to enter into this eye of the Hurricane where you will be safe, and also then the dangers of allowing yourself to be pulled out of that eye of safety.

First: How to Enter Into The Eye of the Hurricane

Throughout Scripture, God has described Himself as a hurricane. Isaiah 28:

“Behold, the Lord has One who is mighty and strong; like a storm of hail, a destroying tempest, like a storm of mighty, overflowing waters, He casts down to the earth with His hand.” (Isaiah 28:2 ESV)

To get into the eye of the hurricane, that place of safety, you must approach God the right way. You don’t just walk up to a hurricane and step inside it any way you choose and expect to survive. Try that and you’ll end up being destroyed by the fierce winds. The destructive power of a hurricane is not to be fooled with or taken for granted. Neither is God.

God is serious. He is about to bring this evil world to an end with great destructive force. Will you survive it? There is a way.

In the United States, there is a military group called the Hurricane Hunters. It is the 53rd Reconnaissance Squadron of the United States Air Force. It is the only Department of Defense organization still flying today into tropical storms and hurricanes. The plane they use is called the WC-130J Hercules.

To measure and observe storms, they don’t just fly these planes directly into a hurricane. They approach the hurricane from above, flying at the WC-130J’s maximum ceiling height of 30,000 feet. They fly over the destroying winds until they reach the eye of the hurricane. This is the only way they can successfully fly their mission and it’s from above.

So it is with God. God is the ultimate Hurricane that is about to come upon this world with full force in what the Bible refers to as a 7-year period of tribulation, right before the return of Jesus. The winds of God in this horrific hurricane represent God’s holiness. God is perfect in His holiness, which means nothing imperfect can stand in His perfect holy presence. God is a hurricane and He will wipe away everything that offends Him. He will do it completely and swiftly. If He doesn’t, then He would no longer be perfectly holy, for He would be condoning and allowing evil to exist. So, as He brings this present Age of Grace to an end, God must act with total destructive force because He is perfect and our world is not. God is a hurricane and He’s coming.

For almost 2,000 years, since Christ was crucified for our sins, God has allowed sinful mankind to exist, giving us time to turn to Him to be forgiven of our sins. This period of time is referred to as the Age of Grace. But that time is now up. From world events, we can all see that God’s hurricane force winds are now picking up speed. They may only be at a category 2 strength now, but soon they will become a category 5 hurricane and then even stronger, going completely off the charts.

This delay of nearly 2,000 years is described in the Bible as a demonstration of God’s “forbearance.” Romans 2:

“Or do you presume on the riches of His kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?” (Romans 2:4 ESV)

Forbearance is a legal term that means, “the action of refraining from exercising a legal right, especially enforcing the payment of a debt.” God’s Word says that the wages of sin is death, eternal separation from God in hell. But God has delayed that judgment, exercising forbearance, to give us time to repent, to turn back to Him so as to be forgiven of our sins. But time is now up, the Age of Grace is at an end, and most of the people in this world have not repented and turned to God. God is a hurricane and He’s coming.

There is one way to get into the eye of God’s hurricane where you will be safe, and it is from above. Jesus said:

“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” (John 14:6 KJV)

In the book of Acts, we read:

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12 KJV)

There is one and only one way to enter into the eye of God’s hurricane where it is safe, and that is through Jesus. Jesus is God in the flesh:

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. … And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 1:1, 14 KJV)

God, in His perfect holiness and love, saw our sinful condition and how we are unable to save ourselves. So He Himself became a man, lived a perfect life, and paid the very penalty of sin that we deserve by dying in our place on the cross, and then He rose from the dead to show us the eternal life He offers to all who turn to Him in faith. 

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16 KJV)

The only way to enter into the eye of God’s hurricane is to believe in Jesus, that He is God Who died in your place to pay your debt of sin, and that He then rose from the dead, providing you a way to everlasting life. You have a debt of sin before a perfectly holy God Who is a hurricane. Either you will pay that debt yourself, which will not go well for you, or you can let God pay that debt for you through Jesus. The choice is yours. But be warned:

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” (John 3:36 KJV)

The key is believing in Jesus. Those who do so will find God’s forgiveness and everlasting life. Those who don’t will have to pay their debt of sin themselves and face God’s wrath. Don’t play with the Hurricane. He means it. At the end of this video, I’ll have a prayer that you can pray to make sure you will be saved. Reciting a prayer doesn’t save you, but it is often used to formalize the act of placing your faith in Jesus. 

Have you safely entered into the eye of the Hurricane? Time is up. A category 5 Hurricane is coming. Make sure you are ready for it.

Then there’s the second part, which occurs after you are saved.

Second: The Dangers of Allowing Yourself to be Pulled Out of the Eye Where You Are Safe

After you are saved, how do you stay in the safety of God’s abiding love and not be swept away in the hurricane?

The one thing that will pull you out of safety is sin. Sin means doing something wrong or not doing what is right. 

Now, I’ve done a 5-part series of videos on the topic of “Once Saved, Always Saved.” That is what God’s Word teaches and I prove it in that series. If you don’t believe that, I’m not going to prove it here. Watch the series. I’ll include a link at the end of this video.

My point here is this: As a saved believer, sin will not cause you to lose your salvation, but it will have consequences, both in this life and in eternity. In this life, we may suffer the earthly consequences of sin and, once in heaven, we can lose eternal rewards. But salvation is not a reward, it’s a gift that can never be lost.

As believers, we still battle with sin. And in this life, we are not immune to the consequences of sin just because we are saved. If we steal, we’ll go to prison. If we kill, we could be put to death. Sin itself is a hurricane that is blowing in the opposite direction of God, trying to pull you away from the safety of God’s protection. If we give into it, we can place ourselves in the line of fire when God moves with His mighty hurricane force winds. This is where timing comes in: the end times, when God is bringing this sinful world to an end, is not the time to be playing with sin. 

Throughout the past 2,000 years, the windspeed of God’s hurricane has varied, starting off strong after Christ was resurrected and the church was started, then slowing down as the church grew. There would be occasional strong, gale-force winds as revivals took place throughout history, but none of these winds will be anywhere near the destructive power that will occur in these coming end times. 

Throughout history, the earthly consequence of a believer who sinned varied depending of the strength of God’s wind at the time. For example, when the church was started in the first century, God’s mighty wind was blowing strong and sinning for a believer at that time was dealt with by God a lot stronger than at other times. We see this in the story of Ananias and Sapphira:

“But a man named Ananias, with his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property, and with his wife’s knowledge he kept back for himself some of the proceeds and brought only a part of it and laid it at the apostles’ feet.” (Acts 5:1-2 ESV)

“But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back for yourself part of the proceeds of the land? While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not at your disposal? Why is it that you have contrived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to man but to God.”” (Acts 5:3-4 ESV)

“When Ananias heard these words, he fell down and breathed his last. And great fear came upon all who heard of it. … After an interval of about three hours his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. … Immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. When the young men came in they found her dead, and they carried her out and buried her beside her husband.” (Acts 5:5, 7, 10 ESV)

Their sin was not holding back some of the money they earned from selling their land. Their sin was lying about it to the church, telling them that what they were giving was the full amount to make themselves look good. But they did it at a time when God’s hurricane force winds were blowing strong, and so they were put to death that very day. Just a hundred years after that and, really, up to the present time, if a believer did the same sin, he or she would likely not be put to death, because God wasn’t on the move like He was in that first century. His winds were not blowing as strong.

My point is this: We are entering the end times when God’s hurricane force winds of His holiness will blow like never before. God is about to demonstrate His holiness and power to this entire world. This is not a time when a believer in Christ should be engaging in any kind of sin. Proceed at your own peril.

If you have entered the eye of the hurricane and are blessed as a child of God with His provision and safety, and then decide to walk to the end of the driveway and into the winds that are blowing so you can engage in sin, you can probably survive that sin if the wind is only blowing 30 miles per hour. But if the wind is blowing 300 miles per hour, you will be swept away. I am not saying you will lose salvation, which can never be lost, but when God is on the move, He is going to demonstrate His holy power and He will do it to the church first. 

Are you a Christian who is playing with sin, not taking God seriously? STOP IT! Are you watchin porn, engaging in sexual immorality or anything unholy? STOP IT. Is there unforgiveness in your life or sins you have not dealt with? ADDRESS THAT NOW while you can. Repent of your sins and turn to God.

God is a hurricane and the earthly consequences of sin will become more and more severe as we head into these end times. God’s hurricane force winds will intensify, to the church first but also to the entire world. If you are a Christian who has been saved by placing your faith in the blood of Christ, you can repent of your sins, be forgiven and return to a place of fellowship with God, to the very safety of the eye of the hurricane. God longs for this. He is your loving Father. He does not want to discipline you severely. Don’t play with God. Don’t test Him in this. Take note of the final period of time we are in. He is coming. You can return to the eye of the storm where you will be safe, this storm that is becoming a raging hurricane.  

And finally:

For Those Not Saved By The Blood Of Christ: Total Destruction Awaits

The Bible speaks of two Gospels: The Gospel of Christ and the Gospel of the Kingdom. The Gospel of Christ refers to God’s plan to save sinful man through the sacrifice and resurrection of His Son Jesus. The Gospel of the Kingdom, however, refers to God’s coming Millennial Kingdom reign on earth that will follow this final 7-year tribulation and the return of Jesus. God’s Kingdom is coming to earth and Jesus will reign and rule upon this earth for 1,000 years. For God’s Kingdom to come, He must first remove the present earthly kingdoms that are ruled by Satan. That is why there is coming a complete destruction and removal of everything, everyone and every nation that stands against God’s Kingdom. 

“The LORD is slow to anger and great in power, and the LORD will by no means clear the guilty. His way is in whirlwind and storm, and the clouds are the dust of His feet. … The mountains quake before Him; the hills melt; the earth heaves before Him, the world and all who dwell in it. Who can stand before His indignation? Who can endure the heat of His anger? His wrath is poured out like fire, and the rocks are broken into pieces by Him. The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows those who take refuge in Him.” (Nahum 1:3, 5-7 ESV)

Have you taken refuge in the Lord?

“Before Him went pestilence, and plague followed at His heels. He stood and measured the earth; He looked and shook the nations; … You marched through the earth in fury; You threshed the nations in anger. … Yet I will rejoice in the LORD; I will take joy in the God of my salvation.” (Habakkuk 3:5-6, 12, 18 ESV)

God’s hurricane is coming. Are you safely abiding in Him? Can you say today that you rejoice in the Lord and have joy in the God of your salvation? 

“”I will utterly sweep away everything from the face of the earth,” declares the LORD. “I will sweep away man and beast; I will sweep away the birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea, and the rubble with the wicked. I will cut off mankind from the face of the earth,” declares the LORD. … those who have turned back from following the LORD, who do not seek the LORD or inquire of Him.”” (Zephaniah 1:2-3, 6 ESV)

“The great day of the LORD is near, near and hastening fast; … A day of wrath is that day, a day of distress and anguish, a day of ruin and devastation, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness, … I will bring distress on mankind… because they have sinned against the LORD; their blood shall be poured out like dust…. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them on the day of the wrath of the LORD. In the fire of His jealousy, all the earth shall be consumed; for a full and sudden end He will make of all the inhabitants of the earth.” (Zephaniah 1:14-15, 17-18 ESV)

Are you living in the shelter of God’s protection, to protect you from all of this?

“”I am about to shake the heavens and the earth, and to overthrow the throne of kingdoms. I am about to destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the nations, and overthrow the chariots and their riders.” (Haggai 2:21-22 ESV)

Be warned and take heed: God’s Kingdom is coming upon this earth. It is a Kingdom of Righteousness and all that is unrighteous in today’s world will be swept away. Everything you know about life on this planet will change. Are you ready?

“And the LORD will be King over all the earth. On that day the LORD will be One and His Name One.” (Zechariah 14:9 ESV)

“But who can endure the day of His coming, and who can stand when He appears?” (Malachi 3:2 ESV)

Here’s the conclusion:

“Then those who feared the LORD spoke with one another. The LORD paid attention and heard them, and a book of remembrance was written before Him of those who feared the LORD and esteemed His name. “They shall be mine, says the LORD of hosts, in the day when I make up my treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him. Then once more you shall see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him.” (Malachi 3:16-18 ESV)

In heaven right now, is there a book of remembrance written for you? There is if you can say with 100% confidence that you are saved by the blood of Christ, that you are His and that He will spare you and save you as His treasured possession. 

And if sin has any place in your life, repent and turn to Him now before God is forced to deal with you. God will welcome you with open arms if you do and readily forgive you.

But if you are not 100% sure that you will be saved when He appears, it’s late but not too late. The time of God’s patience and His waiting for you to turn to Him are almost at an end. Please don’t put it off any longer.

Here’s a prayer for salvation that you can pray that will bring you right into the center of that hurricane, safely into the eye of that storm, where you will be protected by God and saved. As you pray this, keep in mind that a prayer does not save you. You are saved only when you place your trust in Jesus alone, believing in your heart that you are a sinner before God, that Jesus died to pay your debt of sin to God and that He rose from the dead to show you the eternal life that He now offers you. This prayer, then, is just a way of formalizing that decision, putting a stake in the ground, saying that you are trusting in Him and never going back. If that’s what you would like to do, please pray with me:

“Lord, I have sinned and I need you to save me. I believe that Your Son Jesus died on the cross to pay for my sins and that He rose from the dead to show us the new eternal life You have for us. I believe solely in Jesus to save me, that He paid my debt of sin 100%. Please forgive my sins and save me now, Lord, according to your promises. In Jesus Name.”

If you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, know right now that you are eternally saved and can rest in the center of God’s protection.
