Word – "Tumult is Coming"
Re: The Day is Near

This word complements the word I received that the end has come. See P#13, Word – The End
Has Come .
During the night of July 8, 2008, I heard: “Tumult is coming,” which is very similar to the word
of the Lord spoken through Ezekiel as judgment fell upon Judah and Jerusalem.
(7) The time has come, the day is near―tumult rather than joyful shouting on the
mountains. (8) Now I will shortly pour out My wrath on you and spend My anger against
you; judge you according to your ways and bring on you all your abominations. (Ezekiel
7:7-8 NASB)
Believe me; I don’t seek these words or the dreams that I have had over the years, some of
which point to major change coming upon the nations of our generation. It is coming, for the
Lord Jesus Christ, the love of our life, and His kingdom is coming. Regardless of the pain that
may be inflicted upon the nations and, perhaps, us individually, it is a good thing. This I know
and this I testify to because the Lord has told me to testify of His kingdom. Although, I have
been given no specific word on the timing, I do know that we must discern the time just as we
discern the weather.
But there is more. Prior to hearing this word, during the early morning hours of July 5, 2008, I
could not sleep because I heard a low humming sound. I figured it had to be some mechanical
equipment running some place in our community, which is still under development, but it made
no sense why it started some time after midnight. I heard this humming all night, even until
dawn; however, my wife did not hear it, even when I mentioned it to her. As soon as I got out of
bed in the morning, I went outside to listen for the humming, but I could not hear any humming
sound close by or in the distance. Further, I could not find any equipment in our house that was
humming. Finally, the sound went away. I wondered if something was wrong with me, until this
word about tumult came to me three days later and I did some research.
According to Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance , one of the Hebrew root words from which
tumult is derived is hamah , which is “a primary root; to make a loud sound ( like the English
“hum” ); by implication to be in great commotion or tumult, to rage, war, moan, clamor.” There is
another Hebrew root word huwm with a similar meaning. In both cases, notice the similarities to
the word hum .
Was I perhaps hearing the hum or tumult to come prior to being told that it is coming? To add to
this, Webster’s New World Dictionary defines tumult as “a swelling or surging up: 1. Noisy
commotion, as of a crowd; uproar; 2. Confusion; agitation; disturbance; 3. Great emotional
disturbance; agitation of mind or feeling.”
I have concluded that hearing the hum and then hearing His word was the Lord's way of
ensuring I got the message.
The world has begun to experience tumult; it is a hum moving across the globe. But this is only
the beginning, for, undoubtedly, there is more to come until we reach the end of the age.
