“The end-time experience of tribulation is a sequence of fast-moving events,
is a panorama of the earth spinning to man’s destruction,
is of freewill gone berserk,
is of demonic activity without adequate control,
is of the wrath of God spent on the ungodly.
The end-time experience of tribulation unfastens and releases,
unyokes and dispenses,
unsettles and dismisses.
The end-time experience of tribulation carves up the meal of separation,
serves up the dessert of portions,
clears the table of the scraps not fit for dogs.
The end-time experience of tribulation looses the presence of the shrunken stomach,
binds the fountain from cascading,
ignores the rivers of water filled with life.
The end-time experience of tribulation causes man to stumble in the heat,
brings man to shiver in the cold,
leads man to lean into the wind.
The end-time experience of tribulation reverses the environment of man:
brings darkness where once was light,
brings violence where once was harmony,
brings chaos where once was structure,
brings anarchy where once was rule,
brings starvation where once was food,
brings deceit where once was trust.
The end-time experience of tribulation sights the laying bare of signed death warrants as foreclosed in time –
as a week of both nights and days totals each fresh witness to ten thousand times ten thousand spread out upon the earth –
to fuel the fires of acrimony,
to stoke the fires of vengeance,
to sear the souls of the damned:
those who never sought the freeing of the body,
soul and spirit.
The end-time experience of tribulation marks the revelatory point in the reality of the relationship between man and God.
The end-time experience of tribulation closes to vistas long awaited by the sheep,
to preparations long requested through prophetic declarations,
to events unfolding from the throne room of God,
to visits of enactment before the face of man,
to the priceless with the precious seen advancing with the touchstone for eternal destinies.”
