The Silence from Heaven…

Posted by living journey on September 14, 2012 

Watchmen, sound the alarm.
Watchmen, sound the alarm.
No, for we have grown silent.

There is a time to speak;
– and a time for silence.
Let the dead bury their dead.
The walls have been breached.
Let what must be, be.

They heard not our warnings.
They did not take heed.
Now it’s too late.

The people were deaf when they were surrounded all about.
What hope do they have?

The Rephaim walk among them now.
The shades are confused with their shadows.

For the night has fallen as a thick veil.
They cannot discern the light from darkness.

The Shades and the people walk together.
They walk the same way.
How can two walk together unless they agree?

The times of this age have drawn to an end.
The last man heard our last call and he has entered.
A new time of troubles is about to start.
And we have become silent.

A silence that fell from Heaven.
Heaven itself is silent.

Like the walls of Jericho.
There was silence before the trumpet blast.

Let the dead bury their dead.
Let what must be, be.


I am posting the above poem from my fellow-worker at Living Journey because it moved me deeply and I believe it is a word from God. She comments, “I had these words last night. It was a restless night… little sleep. A warning, I fear”.

I also had a restless night with troubling dreams, and was even crying in my sleep; I said to my husband when I woke up, I have this troubling sense that something is coming, like we are waiting for something to happen. There’s a kind a sadness that I cannot account for.

Crossing a Red Line

Later he said, I’ve heard the phrase “red line” three times now.

Once was with regard to the Israel-Iran situation (Source)  where Netanyahu said that a red line had to be drawn:

“A dangerous game of high-flying messages has been taking place between Washington and Jerusalem. Netanyahu made demands for a “red line” for Iran, beyond which action will be taken. “Iran will not stop unless it sees clear determination by the democratic countries of the world and a clear red line,” Netanyahu said in an interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Co. Namely, he doesn’t see the necessary determination from countries such as the United States.”

Secondly, the term “red line” was today applied to the media who just don’t know where to stop. This was about the repellent publication, in a French gossip column, of topless photos of the wife of Prince William during their visit to a private holiday resort. (Source).

Thirdly, the Youtube film trailer about Islam, that has sparked this present unrest across the Middle East, was said by some to have “crossed a red line” of public opinion and commentary. In speaking of these three mentions, I’m not taking sides one way or the other, but saying the term “drawing a red line” has been in the news, and the concept of crossing a red line has entered public consciousness.

But earlier this year I found myself saying something similar: we have passed the point of no return, we have turned a corner. Humanity has crossed the line.

As we approach Rosh Hashannah on 17th September, followed by Yom Kippur on 26th September we are entering another year – one that threatens to escalate all the troubles engulfing humanity up to now. Truly, the birthpangs that Jesus spoke of, leading to his return, are happening right now and we would do well to take heed!

  1. I feel sick.
    As a fellow worker with you both (Vee/TT) I concur 100%. I believe devastation is right round the corner. I have been tossing and turning with bad dreams, troubled, unable to rest – driven deeper into The Word and sounding the alarm on deaf ears. Even the HUGE majority who think they are discerning…are deaf. And the worst thing is they don’t even know.
    On Sunday when discussing this with my husband as we were praying about the way forward with our next ministry project, I was bemoaning the fact that no matter how loud the alarm perhaps there was nobody left to listen who don’t already know and that we should now just leave the dead to bury their own dead.
    I called out to God today to speak to me about this.
    I believe this is his reply.
    I dare not say any more here. Just feel a terrible trepidation – but thanking Him for His Shalom peace deep inside. Oh God, deliver us from what is about to come upon the earth… Nevertheless, let it be unto me according to Thy will…


  2. A comment from me also: as I was writing this my husband decided to go out to the shops. He’s been playing an old cassette tape of the gospels in his car. As he drove off he switched it on, to start where it left off yesterday. He heard “…But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead. (Matthew 8:22)


    • There is little that can so much encourage us as the scriptures..
      “But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”


      • I realize I am replying way past the time this was written, but there are those of us out here that feel the same way. I would say that the times (Nov 19) are even worse than they were when you posted this. …..attack on Israel, etc., but the council from our Lord is to put on the whole armour of God during these times and having done all, stand.


    • whoah… this is getting really freaky. Too much is happening for this not to be something to take notice of. By the way Tricia, thanks for putting my post up. I am so glad that it has been confirmed to be something from God and not my flesh.


  3. For the last two nights I have had dreams of what I think are of the end times – events taking place in the sky that never have before, people joining in groups, traveling under the threat of death. I have only been awake a short time and your post is the second to make me take a closer notice.

    May we all be found fully awake and not sleeping, under the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit in the days to come.

    Love to you, my friend. Thanks for posting. 🙂


  4. I had a dream last night I was riding a train with the president: he was wearing a black suit trimmed with a red line on the lapels, sleeves, jacket bottom, trouser seams and cuff seam. We were all alone, we did not speak, the train changed direction. Eventually I asked him who he was, and as we pulled into a little town, he turned to me and said, “You’ll never know.”
