God always warns the body of Christ when the devil is planning something against us. In this era, He is sounding an alarm to warn us of a coming move of the enemy that will target lukewarm, worldly, and carnal Christians. Recently, in my church’s midweek corporate prayer meeting, the Lord gave me a vision.
In the vision I saw a dark, foreboding sky, like a storm was brewing. I knew this represented trouble on the horizon; the enemy was building momentum to strike. Then I saw vultures circling the earth.
Vultures are scavengers that are stealth in stalking their prey. They have a keen sense for knowing when an animal is weak, sick, and unhealthy; they can smell the stench of disease and death. After vultures attack, they ravage their prey until only the carcass is left. In my vision, vultures represented demonic spirits whose assignment was defeat and destruction.
As the vision continued, I saw the vultures circling over the body of Christ, specifically targeting lukewarm, worldly, and carnal Christians. They were searching for Christians who refused to repent of the things of this world, who were not fully surrendered to God, and who were spiritually weak due to their lukewarm, worldly, or carnal condition. The Lord made it clear that the agenda of Satan in this hour is to bring destruction to many in the body of Christ by attacking Christians who can’t tear themselves away from the things of this world.
In this vision, before the vultures swooped to attack, they defecated on their prey. This put their victims in a spiritual stupor, causing the lukewarm, worldly, and carnal to think they were spiritually fine when they were not. Their hearts became hardened to Truth whenever spoken. The final analysis of the spiritual stupor was that they became even more vulnerable to the enemy’s attack; their weakened spiritual state became weaker still.
After receiving this vision, I was struck with the magnitude of the God’s mercy. Oh how he loves His children. Oh how He wants to protect those in a weakened spiritual state. Oh how good God is to warn us of the enemy’s plans against the body of Christ.
Brothers and sisters, I implore you to wake up! Heed this prophetic warning! The only antidote for lukewarm, worldly, and carnal living is repentance. There is no middle ground in serving Jesus. It’s all or nothing. Run into the arms of your merciful Savior, fall on your knees at the throne of grace, and respond to God’s prophetic warning with deep repentance.
