I relate the following as I have seen it, in a waking dream/vision.

There is a great darkness covering the entire earth. Like a thick fog, a dark storm cloud moving over every nation and people. None are immune. The Spirit of God goes out searching the world for those of the Church who are awake and ready to fight. He rouses us, but only those who are already awake and watching – even if only stumbling out of bed. He comes to America and Europe (“the West”) and finds millions upon millions asleep. There are far fewer in number the other parts of the world but a much greater percentage are awake. As the darkness envelops the world, I saw those who were awake have a cross of light shine out of their chest/heart. This light cut through the darkness around them like a super powered flashlight. Those shining saw the others with light around them – they knew about each other and were connected in some way. I saw all those with the light donning a full suit of armor. Then I saw the whole earth from above, covered in those dark storm clouds, but now the lights pierced through the darkness UP into space. First a few then more and more. The most intense lights began in China, Korea, Pakistan, Iran, Syria, Egypt and northern Africa. This made me weep as I knew it was because this is where He is the most Persecuted. After this, I saw much brighter lights from America, Britain, and throughout Europe, especially Rome. Again I saw individuals in their armor, light shining forth, the different nations and races now joining together for battle. I saw those in China grabbing the hand of the Pakistani, who grabbed the hand of the African, who grabbed the hand of the European and American – all hand in hand, arm in arm, marching in perfect harmony willing to die if need be – the Church as Yeshua intended, of one accord led by His Spirit. The beauty and passionate love I felt was palpable. The darkness was damaged by the lights, but it did not dissipate, for it was its time to rule. The middle east swirled in the storm…
