The Boat Will Shake

The Peace of the Lord Jesus Christ to His Precious Chosen Church,

Tonight I had a very interesting dream. I was inside a boat and this boat belonged to my real father (who is not alive anymore), but I knew he was representing God in the boat. There were many other people in the boat who I did not know in the dream. Suddenly, the boat started shaking as if it was in a very huge storm, but I did not see any rain though. While the boat was shaking, I remember to have seen an impure object, an object which people used as an addition to their sexual lives. Then, my father looked at me and said: "This is necessary to happen to stretch the people in it, make them right with God". I understood that he looked at me to explain to me that because of all the impurities of the people, the boat needed to be shaken for the people to get right with God.

Then, when I was praying about this dream, I opened the scriptures in Nahum 3 which is titled: "The Woe of Nineveh", but I felt in my heart the Lord speaking about the United States of America and I really believe the Lord is giving further information of what is going to happen in America as well through this book and chapter. Read the whole chapter below and after that, read the explanation of this chapter that I found on google which clarifies the whole chapter:

Nahum 3
The Woe of Nineveh
1 Woe to the bloody city!
It is all full of lies and robbery.
Its victim never departs.
2 The noise of a whip
And the noise of rattling wheels,
Of galloping horses,
Of clattering chariots!
3 Horsemen charge with bright sword and glittering spear.
There is a multitude of slain,
A great number of bodies,
Countless corpses

They stumble over the corpses
4 Because of the multitude of harlotries of the seductive harlot,
The mistress of sorceries,
Who sells nations through her harlotries
,
And families through her sorceries.
5“ Behold, I am against you,” says the LORD of hosts;
“ I will lift your skirts over your face,
I will show the nations your nakedness,
And the kingdoms your shame.
6 I will cast abominable filth upon you,
Make you vile,
And make you a spectacle.
7 It shall come to pass that all who look upon you
Will flee from you, and say,
‘ Nineveh is laid waste!
Who will bemoan her?’
Where shall I seek comforters for you?”
8 Are you better than No Amon[a]
That was situated by the River,[b]
That had the waters around her,
Whose rampart was the sea,
Whose wall was the sea?
9 Ethiopia and Egypt were her strength,
And it was boundless;
Put and Lubim were your[c] helpers.
10 Yet she was carried away,
She went into captivity;
Her young children also were dashed to pieces
At the head of every street;
They cast lots for her honorable men,
And all her great men were bound in chains.
11 You also will be drunk;
You will be hidden;
You also will seek refuge from the enemy. 12 All your strongholds are fig trees with ripened figs:
If they are shaken,
They fall into the mouth of the eater.
13 Surely, your people in your midst are women!
The gates of your land are wide open for your enemies;
Fire shall devour the bars of your gates.
14 Draw your water for the siege!
Fortify your strongholds!
Go into the clay and tread the mortar!
Make strong the brick kiln!
15 There the fire will devour you,
The sword will cut you off;
It will eat you up like a locust.
Make yourself many—like the locust!
Make yourself many— like the swarming locusts!
16 You have multiplied your merchants more than the stars of heaven.
The locust plunders and flies away.
17 Your commanders are like swarming locusts,
And your generals like great grasshoppers,
Which camp in the hedges on a cold day;
When the sun rises they flee away,
And the place where they are is not known.
18 Your shepherds slumber, O king of Assyria;
Your nobles rest in the dust.
Your people are scattered on the mountains,
And no one gathers them.
19 Your injury has no healing,
Your wound is severe.
All who hear news of you
Will clap their hands over you,
For upon whom has not your wickedness passed continually?


Some explanation of Nahum 3 for further understanding:

In these verses, Nahum curses (says that evil things will happen to) Assyria. He says that trouble will come because they killed people (blood). And because they said things that were not true (lies). And because they stole things.Then, in verses 2 and 3, he describes the battle that will happen. His words here do not make sentences. Instead, they make sounds like what happens.

· the ‘crack’ (sharp sound) of a whip,
· the ‘rattle’ (sound of wood when it hits wood) of *chariot wheels,
· the ‘gallop’ (sound of their feet on the ground) of horses,
· the ‘scream’ (like someone who is crying) of the *chariots,
· and so on.

Chariots were carts that horses pulled. Soldiers rode in them. There will be dead bodies everywhere. And in verse 4, Nahum gives the reason. Nineveh is like a harlot. A harlot is a woman that has sex with a man for money. Nahum means this as a picture. Because people pay taxes to Nineveh (Assyria), Nineveh does not hurt them. But he also says that Nineveh uses magic. God’s rules do not allow this. Today we do not use the word magic. We say ‘occult’ instead. This means to let evil *spirits do things for and by means of us. But, in verse 5, God says ‘I am against you’. He will make Nineveh like a naked woman. This again is a picture. It means this: People will see Nineveh’s people and Assyria’s people as they really are. They are very evil and wicked.

Verses 8-10 tell us about when soldiers destroyed Thebes. Thebes was a city in Egypt. Soldiers from Assyria destroyed it in 663 *B.C. It had the River Nile to defend it. Thebes had the people from Put and Libya to help it. But Assyria still destroyed Egypt.

Verses 11-19 tell Assyria that it will be like Egypt. Someone will destroy Assyria.

In verses 11-13, there are three pictures:

a) Nineveh will be like a drunk. It (its people) will run away and hide.

b) Nineveh will be like a ripe fig tree. Figs were fruits. When someone shook the tree, the ripe figs fell off.

Enemies will beat Assyria when someone shakes the tree. That means ‘when someone attacks it’.

c) Nineveh’s soldiers will be like women. This means that they will not be as strong as men. So, its enemies will destroy Nineveh.

Again, Nahum tells Nineveh to prepare itself for the attack. In verse 14, God tells Nineveh to:

a) make sure that there is enough water in the city,

b) make its castles strong. (They might have to get more cement from the ground in order to do this.)

In verses 15-17, there are grasshoppers and locusts. Grasshoppers are insects. Locusts are big grasshoppers. Millions of them flew into countries that we read about in the Bible. They ate everything green. They left nothing for the people to eat. God tells Assyria to multiply like these grasshoppers. Someone will still destroy it. It can have as many merchants as there are stars. Someone will still destroy it. The officials of Assyria will give no help. When trouble comes, nobody will find them. They will fly away like locusts on a hot day!

When I started meditating in the explanation of this chapter, it started coming to my mind as a movie the things that are going on in America

- The murder of Osama Bin Laden
- The flood of the Mississipi River
- The earthquakes shaking many places
- The greedy in making money at any cost
- The seeking of the occult and the serving of other gods
- Abortions being done due to the lusts of the flesh

There are many abominations to the eyes of the Lord and He is bringing all the proud low to the ground and He is carving His staff on the ground to bring His righteousness and justice, for He is holy and He is the judge of everything that the eye can or cannot see! He knows them all!

The Lord is still calling people at this last hour for repentance while there is still time, He has been calling thousands of people througout this nation through many people, sources and resources in order to bring people to worship Him and give them the chance to repent, confess their sins and serve Him.

If you are still living a life of sin, today is the day that the Lord has made for you to change your mind and turn all your ways to Him and accept Him as your Lord and Savior and let Him be number one in your life. You do not have more time, repent today! Tomorrow can be very late!

If you are serving the Lord with all your heart, soul and mind, it is time to get on your knees, pray, shout, make supplications and fast for your souls and for whoever the Lord puts in your hearts for the protection and guidance of the Almighty God for all that He is bringing as judgement to this nation.

I hope this word can edify your soul and remember that the Master is in the boat of those who worship Him in spirit and truth,

In Christ,
