Prophetic Warning – A Volcano is Coming


“I see the Lord at the edge of a freshly asphalted highway.  It drops off suddenly and a volcano has sprung up in the middle of the road.  You can’t go around it.  You can’t go over it.  It hasn’t blown yet, but it is rumbling.”

Haggai 1 has been on my mind a lot lately.  It is apparent to me that the Holy Spirit is saying something to His Church through it today.

The prophet Haggai brings a word of rebuke to the Israelites who had been brought back to Jerusalem after seventy years of captivity.  They had begun to repair the temple twenty years earlier.  But reconstruction of the temple had ceased, and everyone went to work building their own houses instead.

Haggai comes to the High Priest and the Governor and admonishes them for focusing on their own houses while God’s house “remains a ruin.”  They got stuck thinking that this world was all about their happiness and well-being.  They stopped restoring Jerusalem when their own peace was fullfilled and forgot that they served a God who wanted to establish His Kingdom on earth.

The Israelites weren’t focused on restoring the Holy of Holies by building a place for His presence to dwell –they had their own personal holy of holies…they had achieved (false) peace in their own lives.

For the Lord says:  This is exactly where most of my Church is even today.  They think that this life is about their peace and their happiness.  They have allowed the counterfeit peace to stop them from working on My Kingdom.

Am I not coming soon?  Do I not expect the Bride to be preparing herself?

Instead, the enemy has held My Church captive by assuming that the goal of this life was about their Dream House – they have forgotten the price I told them they would have to pay to be my disciples.

They are blinded by an angel of light.  They are blinded by their own ambitions.  They are worshiping at a counterfeit holy of holies.

If you are going to be my disciples – you must pick up your cross and follow Me.  You must be more focused on My Kingdom than you are on your own.

My House is a ruin, while the Church is playing pattycake.

The devil is devouring lives while the Church is arguing about worship styles.
 Not many are prepared for what is coming!”

I see the Lord at the edge of a freshly asphalted highway.  It drops off suddenly and a volcano has sprung up in the middle of the road.  You can’t go around it.  You can’t go over it.  It hasn’t blown yet, but it is rumbling.

I hear Him saying, “My people aren’t prepared.  They’ve been busy building their own houses – but not buildling Mine.  If they would have followed Me and prepared themselves like I told them to they would be a supernatural net that would catch many fish in the turmoil…but My Church is unprepared.  So people will perish and fear will grip many, including many in My Church.

I have given them time to repent and seek Me, but they have been mesmerized by their own lives. They are unaware of just how unprepared they are.

But I will not hold back the volcano any longer.  Ready or not --  here it comes.  For those who have prepared themselves and My House, they will bring in a large harvest.  For those who have not heeded the call to get ready, they will gnash their teeth because of their folly.

It’s unavoidable.

But I will use it to wake people out of their slumber.  I will use it as an ‘in your face’ trumpet call. It’s severe mercy to your nation.

It’s time to stop working on your own houses and begin to work on Mine!” says the Lord.

(I do not know whether the volcano I saw in my vision is literal or figurative – but it doesn’t matter.  A volcano is about to explode in our nation – and the Church is largely unprepared for either one.)


Prayer of Repentance:

God please forgive us for not working on Your house and focusing on our own.  Please have mercy on Your Church.  We pray for a spirit of repentance to sweep over us.  We ask for supernatural deliverance.  Grant us humility that we might hit our knees in a way that changes our lives forever!  May Your Kingdom come and Your will be done – we surrender our lives into Your hands.  We ask for a great harvest in the midst of the turmoil.  In Jesus Name, AMEN

  1. I had a dream very similar to this about a week ago. Storms and tornados were raging all around and we were running for shelter. The skies suddenly cleared and the brightest rainbow I have ever seen appeared in the sky. We were surrounded by rainbows all around but in the distance we could see a city. One by one the buildings were collapsing and a great plume of smoke would rise from where the building stood.
    God is getting ready to shake our cities from their slumber. I pray that when it happens we will wake and turn from the darkness that has steadily been gaining a foothold in our nation.
