Gloom & Despair / Agony On Me
DR., I have been experiencing a foreboding as if something sinister is imminent. Anything on your end? Gloomy one.
YES! Gloomy One and I do not think you and I are the only ones who have such a feeling. It is as though I have an anxious anticipation of an event that is about to take place. Recently, I experienced just a flash of an explosion in a city. I was not in the area of it, but it seemed to be real. My question is, “how am I to interpret what I saw?” I will be asking others if anything similar has occurred with them?
OTHER STUFF: Earlier this year I saw four angels in a twilight-like atmosphere while about to awake from sleep, or about to fall asleep…. I asked the fourth, who was in the form of a theretofore unknown man why he was there, but received no response, The other three were in the form of women who looked only at the area of my feet and seemed only to be observing me as if to assure themselves of whom I was. The man/angel made a sign in the American sign language of the deaf that was a sign signifying either Deity or honor, according to whether the letter he signed was an “h” meaning “honor” or “honored one.” Of course I cannot relate to being an honored one, so I have to leave the “angel appearances” with a questioning on my part of Why? But does it all tie together somehow, and if so, why me? I have experienced the working of angels as they acted in their “job description”, see in Heb 1.14.
THE ANGEL OF THE LORD GUARDS AND RESCUES ALL WHO REVERENCE HIM. SEE PSA. 34. 7. Whether wearing the uniform of one’s nation or of a Christian soldier wearing God’s armor: the helmet of salvation, from the breast plate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the shoes of a missionary and the belt of truth,,, heavenly angels are on alert to minister to and for us. God orders His angels to protect His redeemed ones wherever they go. They will steady them with their hands to keep them from stumbling against stones on the trail (Psa 91. 11). Therefore, need a Christian walk in fear and trepidation?
BIBLICAL ASSURANCE: SURELY GOD will do nothing without first telling His Prophets what He intends. See (Amos 3.7). Homer and Jethro wrote the song “Gloom, despair, and agony on me, deep dark depression, excessive misery; if not for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all; Gloom despair and agony on me.” Are we indeed being prepared for the anxious anticipation that many are feeling? Let the prophets report and then we must decide what response we must make, as the Fox News people say. Comments and discussion invited.
