Wake Up Church!!

This writing is the latest prophecy in a series of prophecies that Jesus Christ gave to Armour Bearer concerning the coming persecution of the church. Each prophecy is getting more severe and urgent. This article also contains a warning, and a vision from Christ to His Bride to wake up to what is going on around them, and perhaps in their lives. Remember the Lord God loves His people so much He wants them to be ready, to be holy as He is holy, to stand guard, and He does nothing without warning His prophets first (Amos 3:7). Arsenal of the King is not the only ministry that is warning Christians to wake up because persecution is coming to the church. Several preachers and prophets from all denominations have warned of the coming persecution including Franklin Graham, Christianity Today, Open Doors USA, The Christian Post, J. Vernon McGee, Voice of the Martyrs, Dr. Missler from Khouse, Skywatch TV, Prophecy Today, End Times Prophecy, Prophecy for Today, Jack Van Impe Ministries, End Time Ministries, and Tom Horn. Unfortunately, the subject of Awaken the Bride or the church is so prevalent that a number of books and songs have been written about the church waking up. Church wake up for the time is short. Rouse yourself, shake off your sleep, and your laziness, your selfishness, and fascination with the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life (1 John 2).


Prophecy from God

Wake, oh wake, oh sleeper

For what shall wake you up out of your ivory tower

Your ivory cage

For you have been sleeping like a princess in an ivory tower

But soon all that is around you will change [Fulfilled]

Will it be war

Will it be destruction

Will it be persecution

What will it take to bring you out of your ivory cage

Will it be the soldiers knocking on the door [Fulfilled]

Will it be the screams of your neighbors [Fulfilled]

Will it be the firefight in the sky

What will wake you from your ivory cage

Wake oh wake oh sleeper

Wake before it is too late

Wake before they come for you

Knock upon your door

Sound the alarm

Wake the soldiers for the end is near

The time is coming when no man will sleep

Watchmen rise up

Take your stand

Warn the Bride

Warn the church of their self-infused indulgent folly

Wake up

Christ is the truth

Your escape

For whom the Son sets free is free indeed

Vision from God

The Lord God showed me a giant squid of debauchery that has its tentacles wrapped around the church. Self-indulgence has blinded the Bride, and she has become entangled in the world. The tentacles of sin have swathed the Bride in slimy appendages of greed, lust, selfishness, hedonism, sensuality, carnality, gratification, and decadence. The creature laughs and wraps itself tighter around Christian’s as it whispers in their ears the lies, they long to hear. For each person has their own deceit that is a poison so easily swallowed like sweet juice on their lips until their belief in the lies grow, and the deceit wraps itself ever closer like a python hugging its victim until it there is no escape. Christian, wake up!! There is escape in Christ.

Biblical Verses that pertain to the prophecy and vision

Wake up church

The days are evil

Arise from the dead

Ephesians 5:14-16 (New American Standard Bible)

“14 For this reason it says,

“Awake, sleeper,
And arise from the dead,
And Christ will shine on you.”

15 Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, 16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil.” 

Wake up Church

Before Destruction comes

By famine and sword

Ezekiel 5

“As for you, son of man, take a sharp sword; take and use it as a barber’s razor on your head and beard. Then take scales for weighing and divide the hair. One third you shall burn in the fire at the center of the city, when the days of the siege are completed. Then you shall take one third and strike it with the sword all around the city, and one third you shall scatter to the wind; and I will unsheathe a sword behind them. Take also a few in number from them and bind them in the edges of your robes. Take again some of them and throw them into the fire and burn them in the fire; from it a fire will spread to all the house of Israel.

“Thus says the Lord God, ‘This is Jerusalem; I have set her at the center of the nations, with lands around her. But she has rebelled against My ordinances more wickedly than the nations and against My statutes more than the lands which surround her; for they have rejected My ordinances and have not walked in My statutes.’ Therefore, thus says the Lord God, ‘Because you have more turmoil than the nations which surround you and have not walked in My statutes, nor observed My ordinances, nor observed the ordinances of the nations which surround you,’ therefore, thus says the Lord God, ‘Behold, I, even I, am against you, and I will execute judgments among you in the sight of the nations. And because of all your abominations, I will do among you what I have not done, and the like of which I will never do again. 10 Therefore, fathers will eat their sons among you, and sons will eat their fathers; for I will execute judgments on you and scatter all your remnant to every wind. 11 So as I live,’ declares the Lord God, ‘surely, because you have defiled My sanctuary with all your detestable idols and with all your abominations, therefore I will also withdraw, and My eye will have no pity and I will not spare. 12 One third of you will die by plague or be consumed by famine among you, one third will fall by the sword around you, and one third I will scatter to every wind, and I will unsheathe a sword behind them.

13 ‘Thus My anger will be spent and I will satisfy My wrath on them, and I will be appeased; then they will know that I, the Lord, have spoken in My zeal when I have spent My wrath upon them. 14 Moreover, I will make you a desolation and a reproach among the nations which surround you, in the sight of all who pass by. 15 So it will be a reproach, a reviling, a warning and an object of horror to the nations who surround you when I execute judgments against you in anger, wrath and raging rebukes. I, the Lord, have spoken. 16 When I send against them the deadly arrows of famine which were for the destruction of those whom I will send to destroy you, then I will also intensify the famine upon you and break the staff of bread. 17 Moreover, I will send on you famine and wild beasts, and they will bereave you of children; plague and bloodshed also will pass through you, and I will bring the sword on you. I, the Lord, have spoken.’”

Wake up church

Judgment is near

Arise, arise, arise

Isaiah 51:17

“17 Rouse yourself! Rouse yourself! Arise, O Jerusalem,
You who have drunk from the Lord’s hand the cup of His anger;
chalice of reeling you have drained to the dregs.”

Wake up Bride

Before you are put into a cage

And Hunted with a Net

Ezekiel 19:9

“9 ‘They put him in a cage with hooks
And brought him to the king of Babylon;
They brought him in hunting nets
So that his voice would be heard no more
On the mountains of Israel.”

Wake up Christian

Wake up oh sleeper

Keep watch with Jesus

Matthew 26:36-46

“36 Then Jesus *came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and *said to His disciples, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” 37 And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be grieved and distressed. 38 Then He *said to them, “My soul is deeply grieved, to the point of death; remain here and keep watch with Me.”

39 And He went a little beyond them, and fell on His face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.” 40 And He *came to the disciples and *found them sleeping, and *said to Peter, “So, you men could not keep watch with Me for one hour? 41 Keep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

42 He went away again a second time and prayed, saying, “My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your will be done.” 43 Again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. 44 And He left them again, and went away and prayed a third time, saying the same thing once more. 45 Then He *came to the disciples and *said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour is at hand and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Get up, let us be going; behold, the one who betrays Me is at hand!”

Wake oh Bride

Waken from your lusts

The day is near

Romans 13:11-14

“11 Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed. 12 The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13 Let us behave properly as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality, not in strife and jealousy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts.”


Pray for Our Brothers and Sisters Facing Persecution

Please pray for our fellow Christians who are suffering under persecution for the Bible tells us to do unto others as we want them to do for us (Luke 6:31). Our Father we fall on our knees and pray for the persecuted church for our own dear brothers and sisters who face death, torture, financial loss, loss of freedom, loss of family and sickness for the name of Jesus Christ. We ask for You to give them strength, love, peace, courage, comfort, provide for their needs, heal them, and abide in them as they abide in You. Fill them with Your precious Holy Spirit and let them know You are closer than a brother and care for them.


Pray for God’s Freedom

Father in heaven we ask, that You open the eyes of Your children to any sins that may have them entangled. Lord, we praise You that You have FREEDOM. We seek Your freedom from any bondage we may knowingly or unknowingly be living with, and we repent for our sins and ask You to make us holy for You are holy. We thank You for the cross, for Your blood shed for our sins, for Your body that was broken for us, we thank You that You are so humble and giving and laid Your life down for ours. Father, we praise You for who You are and praise You for Your truth and Your freedom. Praise the name of the Most High God, the maker of heaven and earth. May we resound with Your praises.

Let us lift up our hearts and arms in praise to the eternal King who is coming again; Hallelujah to the King.

John 8:36-38

“36 So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.”


May God bless you richly.

Armour Bearer
