On my walk this morning, I saw a manhole and the wording on it said, “Storm Sewer”; immediately the Holy Spirit said, “A storm is coming!” I wrote it off as my own voice, but now a I am sitting at my desk reading Proverbs 10 as today is the 10th, the Holy Spirit highlights verse 25 and says, “A storm is coming!” Proverbs 10:25 says, “When the whirlwind passes, the wicked is no more, But the righteous has an everlasting foundation.” Whirlwind in the Hebrew means: a hurricane; storm; tempest; Red Sea. The Holy Spirit says again, “A storm is coming to remove wickedness from the land, remember the Red Sea.”

The word whirlwind comes from a word which means to snatch away; terminate; consume; have an end; perish; to cease. No wonder whirlwind means Red Sea, for at the Red Sea the people of God passed through on dry ground, but the Egyptians were drowned in the Red Sea, they were swept away. My friends, we have been taught wrongly through books of men which told us we want to be snatched away in what we call a rapture, but a storm is coming not to take us away but to take the wicked away. We are in a Red Sea moment, with Passover coming at the end of the month. Watch April.

Storms are not for us to fear, for storms remove the wicked and establish the righteous, at least that is what Solomon said in Proverbs 10. We have nothing to be afraid of, God is for us and not against us. He is removing wickedness from us, not punishing His children. We must repent of this fear based theology, this powerless gospel, this angry God idea who is letting darkness prevail so we can be raptured out of here. We must repent and believe the good news that the kingdom of God is at hand. Matthew 6 says, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We are on earth and His kingdom is at hand here on earth. We are not going anywhere, so it is time to repent of believing the lie that darkness is winning and we are leaving. The whirlwind is coming to sweep away our enemies, not us.
