Things in alarming conjunction: 1)Nearness in time of prophetic events, 2)Widespread spiritual malaise & 3)General apostasy of the Church.

The only prophetic timer the Lord ever gave me: the tsunami house, is almost 90% complete. Turkey has ordered it's Air force to shoot down all Russian warplanes in their air space. Watch Turkey! WW3 will be like WW1: it starts by treaty. God has severely judged the Church: He has already sent a spirit of slumber upon it. It has not been found worthy to escape that which is about to come upon the Earth. Apostasy rules: The church is deathly ill.
Rom 11:7-10 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.
Isa 29:10 For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.
Ecc 1:9-10 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
The Lord suddenly impressed it upon my mind last night that He has poured out a spirit of slumber and malaise upon the previously spiritual people and yes, this includes the people of Watchmen Prophets Assembly and every other group of people who have feasted upon prophets and prophecy. The Day of the Lord will come upon all of them as a snare and a trap. They will not escape it. I pondered on those three scriptures above that the Lord had quickened to me and had placed together. Then, I began to think about recent news and I first posted the few words to Twitter and then expanded a bit for the purposes of Facebook. But, it does not take many words more than Twitter to realize just how horrible a spiritual judgement this is and ones eyes only need to be opened barely to recognize that it is falling at just the wrong time for the Church. Apparently, the church has been weighed in the balances and has been found wanting and that includes the so called "prophetic" people. The Lord is not pleased with the whole crowd.
Matthew Henry wrote best in my view about this spiritual judgement of a slumbering spirit, unleashed by God, upon humanity. I do not think that he ever foresaw that this type of judgement might be unleashed by God upon Christians in mass, but that is what the Lord has impressed upon me at this time.
The rest were blinded, Rom_11:7. Some are chosen and called, and the call is made effectual. But others are left to perish in their unbelief; nay, they are made worse by that which should have made them better. The gospel, which to those that believed was the savour of life unto life, to the unbelieving was the savour of death unto death. The same sun softens wax and hardens clay. Good old Simeon foresaw that the child Jesus was set for the fall, as well as for the rising again, of many in Israel, Luk_2:34. - Were blinded; epōrōthēsan - they were hardened; so some. They were seared, and made brawny and insensible. They could neither see the light, nor feel the touch, of gospel grace. Blindness and hardness are expressive of the same senselessness and stupidity of spirit. They shut their eyes, and would not see; this was their sin: and then God, in a way of righteous judgment, blinded their eyes, that they could not see; this was their punishment. This seemed harsh doctrine: to qualify it, therefore, he vouches two witnesses out of the Old Testament, who speak of such a thing. (1.) Isaiah, who spoke of such a judgment in his day, Isa_29:10; Isa_6:9. The spirit of slumber, that is, an indisposedness to mind either their duty or interest. They are under the power of a prevailing unconcernedness, like people that are slumbering and sleeping; not affected with any thing that is said or done. They were resolved to continue as they were, and would not stir. The following words explain what is meant by the spirit of slumber: Eyes, that they should not see, and ears, that they should not hear. They had the faculties, but in the things that belonged to their peace they had not the use of those faculties; they were quite infatuated, they saw Christ, but they did not believe in him; they heard his word, but they did not receive it; and so both their hearing and their seeing were in vain. It was all one as if they had neither seen nor heard. Of all judgments spiritual judgments are the sorest, and most to be dreaded, though they make the least noise. - Unto this day. Ever since Esaias prophesied, this hardening work has been in the doing; some among them have been blind and senseless. Or, rather, ever since the first preaching of the gospel: though they have had the most convincing evidences that could be of the truth of it, the most powerful preaching, the fairest offers, the clearest calls from Christ himself, and from his apostles, yet to this day they are blinded. It is still true concerning multitudes of them, even to this day in which we live; they are hardened and blinded, the obstinacy and unbelief go by succession from generation to generation, according to their own fearful imprecation, which entailed the curse: His blood be upon us and upon our children.
I mentioned in my brief initial statements that this slumber or malaise is in alarming conjunction with at least two other things: near approaching prophetic events and general apostasy of the church. To elaborate, there are several near term prophetic events that the Holy Spirit is repeatedly warning about in addition to a soon breaking WW3 and an asteroid tsunami along the Eastern Seaboard of the US. Also on the near term horizon is a worldwide economic collapse accompanied by a total crash of the dollar.
Scripture is very clear: believers must walk in the light in order to escape these events. They are not! Believers must not love the world. They do! Believers must be found worthy to escape by God: they have not been so found. Hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches.
