-Chad (-JTB Comments).

In May of 2007 I was at a prayer meeting with a group of men. My
eyes had been opened to the financial situation the U.S. was in at
that time. I had recently read an article comparing our then current
situation with that of the 1920’s just prior to the Great Depression.
I had also been reading about the disappearance of the honey
bees. These things were of serious concern to me, but probably
not on the mind of anyone else in the group. I decided to mention
the honey bee situation as a prayer concern. There was a young
man there, a soldier, who was stationed near our city here in
Alaska. I did not know him very well and did not know what was
about to transpire or what he was going to say after our prayers
were finished. It must have been more than a year later that I set
up a time to meet with him and discuss what had happened that
night. He gave me a copy of what he had written in his journal as follows:

"Yesterday I was at a prayer meeting with some of my friends. I
was really looking forward to the four day weekend. I had no
previous knowledge about the concern God was going to put on my heart.

It came up from one of the guys to pray for the bee situation in
America. Apparently beekeepers around America are losing lots of
their bees and no one seems to know why.

When we started talking about this and some of the reasons why
people think this might be happening the Holy Spirit came upon
me strongly. In my mind, I saw the Alaskan wilderness with
mountains and plains and trees. Close to me was a camping
lantern hanging in the air around chest height. The lantern was on,
but you couldn’t tell very easily during the daylight. Then a great
darkness came over the land and the lantern shone brightly.

God then impressed strongly on me that the lantern represents
Christians. The daylight represents good times. Right now there is
an abundance of blessings that we are enjoying, but they are soon
to end. God is bringing a great darkness, which represents a time
of meagerness, desperation and famine. The next thought in my
mind was that this time we are in now is akin to the roaring
twenties when there was great abundance. The time to come is
not unlike the great depression that hit afterwards.

The Spirit impressed on me that Christians now do not seem to be
shining brightly because of the current daylight, (the great
abundance). They do not appear to be different from anyone else,
but when this time of darkness comes, then Christians will stand
out in great contrast to the rest of society, and many will look to
us and many will be added to our number. When this time of
darkness comes, many people will be become desperate and for
some reason God impressed on me that many will go into the
wilderness, away from civilization.

Then God impressed on my heart that the bees’ disappearance
was a sign that American industry would be derailed. This was the
sign of the coming famine to hit this land. I thought of how Joseph
interpreted Pharaoh’s dreams of the seven years of plenty and the
seven years of famine. I didn’t get an idea of how long it would last though.

In addition to this, God impressed on me strongly that His people
are “in a malaise,” and they must be warned of the reality of what’s
about to happen. Many Christians have been deceived by comfort
and their blessings and are not walking with God; they are not in
tune with His Spirit and what He is about to do. When the
darkness comes, they will fall into distress like the rest of society.
A friend I had recently made came to mind, and I was filled with
the urge to tell him to get ready spiritually for what is to come.

As the other guys were praying for the needs that arose during our
time together, I was greatly distressed by this vision. I wasn’t able
to keep track with their prayers. It seemed that God is about to do
something tremendous, but we are more concerned with our little
tea parties and nice prayers. I think God wants us to have some
perspective about what He is about to do instead of just being
preoccupied with our own situations.

I was wondering when all this was going to happen and the
impression I got was very soon, like this next winter. This was very
disturbing to me, and I have been trying to inquire of God and
confirm when, but the only response I get is soon.

The thought of what was going to happen disturbed me and I was
afraid. I told God, “I’m afraid,” and He impressed on me again that
I don’t need to be afraid because I have the Spirit of God. It will
glow in the darkness and I will be able to see. He will provide for
me like He always has.

After the guys had stopped praying, I told them about what I had
seen and what God impressed on me. At one point, I broke down
and started sobbing, I just couldn’t control it."
