I was reading I Chronicles 21 about King David when the Lord began speaking this message to me.
Where yet is My peoples' fear of Me? How is it they do not fear what I am about to do? You have fallen asleep, My people. The enemy has lulled your souls to sleep with the lie there is yet time to repent of the great evils this country has committed against Me, the Holy One of Israel.
He has lulled you to sleep in your sins in the hope you will not awaken in time that you may be saved, and of many of you this will be true for you continue to reject My warnings to you,
preferring the lies of the world in which you live. (I felt the deep sadness of the Lord when He spoke this last sentence)
You who refuse to give up your sin, I am coming to judge you soon. Do not be deceived, My children, into thinking I do not care when you sin for that is the enemy's thinking, not Mine. You shall reap what you are sowing if you refuse My ways.
Turn now while there is yet time and space for you to repent, for great is the magnitude of what I am about to do. Indeed, the whole world shall be shaken by it.
Fearful and mighty is the Holy One of Israel but My people have forgotten how strong I am in battle and fear Me not.
II Kings 19:22: Whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed? and against whom hast thou exalted thy voice, and lifted up thine eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel.

Judges 16:19-20: And she made him sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him. And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the LORD was departed from him.
Prov. 6:9-11: How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.
Ephesians 5:14-15: Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
