Yang Lama Telah Berlalu

Di tepi jalan sang jendral
Kulihat bayang-bayang impianku
Yang telah lama hanyut dalam
Hiruk pikuk ibukota

Mereka memang diam membisu
Pun tak sanggup menyapa dalam tatapan
Namun jelas sekali terhenyak
Bahwa sanubariku tersapa 

Dan jelaslah sudah tergadai impian haram
Yang tertebus oleh darah termahal
Kini hanya dapat menatap bisu
Dari balik tutup peti mati

Sejak hari ini juga hatiku mantap
Sambil bersenandung dari relung
Di mana Engkau berada, di situ juga aku
Impian-Mu jadi mimpiku, selamanya

Maurice Sklar's Vision - August 17th, 2015

On this past Monday evening, I was listening to Rick Taylor preaching at the Healing Rooms. Suddenly, I had a vision. I saw us all pressing in with all our might in the Spirit in spiritual warfare. We had our full armor on. Our shields of faith were flush together over our heads. They were together so tight that it looked like one massive shield in front of us and over our heads like a wall of fire.

Pada Senin malam yang lalu, saya sedang menyimak kotbah Rick Taylor di Healing Rooms. Tiba-tiba, saya mendapatkan sebuah penglihatan. Saya melihat kita semua bergerak mendesak di dalam Roh dalam peperangan rohani. Kita mengenakan seluruh persenjataan. Perisai iman kita menudungi di atas semua kepala. Semua perisai begitu rapat sehingga terlihat seperti sebuah perisai raksasa yang melingkupi di depan dan di atas kepala bagaikan tembok berapi.

Our swords were drawn and out in front of us. We were not many, but we were mighty before the enemy. We were gaining ground inch by inch. Satan was hitting us with all he had. His greatest principalities were hitting us. Arrows with flaming heads were raining down upon us like rain. I could not even see the air or sky, just what looked like millions of arrows. 

Semua pedang terhunus di depan kita. Kita tidak banyak, namun amat perkasa di hadapan barisan musuh. Kita menguasai medan, inci demi inci. Satan menyerang dengan segala yang dia punya. Pemerintah-pemerintahnya yang terbesar menyerang kita. Panah-panah berapi dilemparkan kepada kita bagaikan hujan. Saya bahkan tidak bisa melihat langit di atas, hanya melihat jutaan panah tersebut.


The closest thing I could relate it to was the siege of Minas Tirith in Tolkien's Return of the King movie. The LORD spoke to me saying, "For the past three weeks, there has been an all out attack against the leaders here, as well as all of those in the earth who are contending for the great end time revival / awakening that is coming. 

Gambaran terdekat yang bisa menggambarkan adegan tersebut adalah adegan perang di Minas Tirith dalam film The Lord of The Ring III (Return of The King). TUHAN berfirman kepada saya, "Selama tiga minggu terakhir, ada sebuah serangan dahsyat yang menimpa para pemimpin, sebagaimana semua yang di bumi berjuang untuk datangnya revival atau kebangkita rohani terbesar di Akhir Zaman."

The LORD said, "LOOK UP!!" So I looked up. Then, it seemed like I zoomed outward and I saw a band of darkness around the earth. Under it, looked like "all hell" was breaking loose, literally. Demonic assaults were raining down on all nations. But, I noticed that some nations had less oppression than others. Some looked like black holes, there were so dark. Others had points of light and fires shooting upwards. 

TUHAN berkata, "LIHAT KE ATAS!" Maka saya memandang ke atas. Kemudian, seperti saya dapat memandang keluar dan saya melihat barisan kegelapan mengelilingi seluruh bumi. Di bawahnya, terlihat seperti "seluruh isi neraka" sungguh-sungguh tumpah. Serangan demonik menghujani seluruh bangsa. Namun, saya melihat beberapa negara mengalami penindasan lebih ringan daripada negara-negara lainnya. Beberapa terlihat seperti lubang hitam yang amat sangat gelap. Yang lainnya memiliki banyak titik cahaya dan api yang ditembakkan ke atas.

Then, I watched as I seemed to zoom in again to our ministry here in Santa Maria. A column of what looked like liquid fire just shot up from us above where we were battling on the earth. This fire hit the band of darkness over the earth and began to bore its' way through it like a plasma laser! We were right at the edge! 

Kemudian, saya melihat lagi pelayanan kami di Santa Maria. Sebuah pilar yang tampak seperti cairan api tertembak dari kita ke atas di mana kita sedang bertempur di bumi. Pilar api ini memukul barisan kegelapan yang menutupi bumi dan mulai melubangi bagaikan sebuah plasma laser! Kita berada tepat di penghujung!

On the other side of that dark band was light that was so bright that I could hardly see for a time. Then, my eyes seemed to adjust, and I saw the LORD seated on His white horse. Behind Him were the armies of angels as far as I could see. Then, I saw the Heavenly Saints behind them on horses and chariots of Fire. They were all waiting for the moment when the columns of the Fire of God would break through that dark band around the earth.

Di sisi lain barisan kegelapan ada cahaya yang begitu terang sehingga saya sulit melihat dalam sesaat. Lalu, mata saya bisa beradaptasi, dan saya melihat TUHAN duduk di atas kuda putih-Nya. Di belakang-Nya adalah bala tentara malaikat sejauh saya memandang. Lalu, saya melihat Orang-Orang Kudus di belakang mereka di atas kuda-kuda dan kereta-kereta berapi. Mereka semua menunggu saat ketika pilar Api Tuhan menerobos barisan kegelapan yang melingkupi bumi.

Then the LORD spoke to me again and cried, "YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES CONTENDING TO BREAK THROUGH THE DARKNESS ... BEHOLD MY BRIDE IS PREVAILING!!"

Kemudian TUHAN berkata lagi kepadaku dan berseru, "KALIAN BUKAN SATU-SATUNYA YANG BERJUANG MENEROBOS KEGELAPAN ... LIHATLAH MEMPELAI-KU YANG MENGUASAI!!"

Then He opened my eyes and I saw millions of praying saints in many places praying together in unity and love throughout the earth. There were these same columns of white-hot fire ascending over them. Many hundreds had reached the band of darkness. About ten were already more than halfway bored through already. I saw that those prayer warriors that had hit the dark band were attacked so badly, that many were reeling back and some had fallen, because of the fierceness of the demonic attack. BUT, THEY WERE NOT RETREATING!!

Kemudian Ia membuka mata saya dan saya melihat jutaan orang percaya di berbagai tempat berdoa dalam unity dan kasih di seluruh bumi. Ada begitu banyak pilar berapi yang sama naik dari tempat mereka berdoa. Ratusan pilar telah menembus barisan kegelapan tersebut. Sekitar sepuluh sudah lebih dari separuh jalan menerobos. Saya melihat para pejuang pendoa yang memukul balik barisan kegelapan diserang dengan amat parah, banyak dari mereka terguncang dan beberapa terjatuh, karena keganasan serangan demonik tersebut. NAMUN, MEREKA TIDAK UNDUR!!

Then, the LORD spoke like a lion roaring, as He sat mounted on His horse in front of the Armies of Heaven, "I AM AT THE THRESHOLDS! HOLD FAST IN YOUR FAITH! I AM COMING FOR MY PRECIOUS BRIDE WITH TEN THOUSANDS OF MY SAINTS AND MY ANGELS TO BRING YOU HOME! BUT, WOE TO THE EARTH AND THOSE THAT REMAIN!

Kemudian, TUHAN mengaum seperti singa, sambil Ia duduk di atas kuda putih-Nya di depan barisan Tentara Sorga, "AKULAH YANG BERADA DI AMBANG PINTU (tinggal melangkah masuk)! KUATKAN IMANMU! AKU DATANG UNTUK MEMPELAI-KU YANG BERHARGA DENGAN PULUHAN RIBU ORANG-ORANG KUDUS-KU DAN PARA MALAIKAT-KU UNTUK MEMBAWA KALIAN PULANG! NAMUN, CELAKALAH BUMI DAN MEREKA YANG TERTINGGAL!

"OH EARTH, EARTH, EARTH, PREPARE TO MEET THY GOD!"

"OH BUMI, BUMI, BUMI, BERSIAPLAH UNTUK BERTEMU TUHANMU!"

Then, the vision ended.

Penglihatan berakhir.
