Bless the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ!

Hi there Whirlwind Fans!

  • My name is Steven R. Harrel.
  • You should know this blog represents all three Steven R. Harrel posts: True-Life #38 to #39 and #40.  🙂 Lucky You.
  • First and foremost I am a Christian and servant of God.
  • Above all else, that is who I am.

Following that…

  • I am a singer, songwriter, author, husband, dad, grand-dad and prophet.
  • I didn’t have anything to do with becoming a prophet; rather, that is all on God. Just the truth.

I share this next bit of information with you in order to stimulate a little curiosity for the overall post:

Not counting the divine revelation found in our book, “This Side of the Whirlwind” … I received well over 150 prophecies, Words of Knowledge or visions since the age of 9 years old and have continued (so far) to receive divine revelations thru my 59th year.

Just for the record; this post is being written in 2018.

With the exception of 3 or 4 prophetic words — EVERY prophecy, Word of Knowledge or vision I’ve received AND GIVEN has come to pass.  I believe even the remaining 3 or 4 will eventually come to pass as well.

The Lord has moved in my life to heal many people including a young woman healed of Epilepsy in Phoenix Arizona, and another of Lupus in Odessa Texas.

As I prayed, I watched as God healed a man blinded in his left eye for more than 20 years; amazingly, I didn’t know he was blind until he started rejoicing and shouting, “I can see!  I can see!”

One of my favorite healings took place only a short time ago in July of 2017 when my wife Pam, and I, prayed for one of our four grandchildren and watched as she was healed only a few hours later.  Talk about having joy in the Lord!!!  However many exclamation points would have follow that statement if it were your grand-baby healed?

Once upon a time and only once, I enjoyed hearing the voice of God audibly while I hung 150-ish feet up on the side of a cliff in the midst of a freak cloud-BURST, while my brother and I hiked and climbed all over and around the Mogollon Rim.  The Mogollon Rim is located in the middle of Arizona’s White Mountains and this event mentioned took place in the summer of 1985.  Interestingly, while my brother and I hung onto the side of a cliff – a storm raged all around us with unbelievably heavy rains and searing lightning strikes flashing (though none very near to us) and thunders constantly churning across the deeply blackened skies.

As we clung to the side of this cliff, we hoped we wouldn’t be washed away by the careening waters flooding down the rock-face.  I lost my footing and slid down the rock-face for about 15 feet before making purchase once again; my heart was racing as I looked up and into my brother’s face; there was nothing he could have done.  Then suddenly, everything “for me” went utterly silent.  Yes, the storm still raged on and lightning still split the skies with thunders roiling in waves and shaking the heavens; but my brother who was only a short distance away, could not hear my moments of silence.

Then each and every one of the seven – near identical – prophecies I’d received since August of 1984 (approximately 9 months had pasted thus far) began to flood into my mind.  Every detail and event was covered until… right behind me… some 150’ to 200’ feet up on the side of a cliff… I heard a Voice!  Though I don’t know exactly how, I knew in an instant the Voice was from God the Father.  Mind you, the waters were still rushing down the cliff and pouring from the skies and thundering with the storm (and yes!) the storm was still trying to wash by brother and me off the cliff and to our destruction.

But the Voice, that Voice was audible and so profound I had to actually turn my head and shoulders because I wanted to see that face, the face of Him whose Voice I was hearing.  I actually expected to see a face and was saddened when I did not; unfortunately, there was not a face hanging in the skies above the valley that day.  Wow, that would have been even more amazing!  Then, the Voice said even as I was looking in the air at my back… the Voice said (referring to the seven prophecies that had just flooded my mind) “Have I fulfilled these things in your life?”

I said, “No Lord” for it was my Creator speaking.

God then said, “Then you cannot die until all these things have been fulfilled in your life!”

As I wrote earlier in this post, “I tell you this next part merely to stimulate curiosity” and not counting the divine revelation found in the book…”

God has spoken into my life on many and numerous occasions.

Each of these occasions in my youth appeared to be God training me to hear His Voice accurately so I could and would learn to convey His messages without adding my own opinions or interpretations; though not adding can be very tough to do at times.

Bear in mind, trust is a difficult thing to earn and an easy thing to lose… So you need to decide for yourself when you read the materials God has placed on my heart whether the Lord is speaking into your life or not.  This is especially true with regards to the Great Consummation and End of Days messages in our book, “This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse”.

I’m going to stop here for now, but know that this is a little blurb about who I am in Christ and why I wrote the book, “This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse”.


My Walk with God

You should know this is part 2 of a three part blog:

I have been saved and have known the Lord since I was merely seven years old; although, I did not truly become a converted Believer and follower of the Lord until I was 25 years old, my life has evolved through an amazing series of events in which God blessed me to hear His voice and see His visions and know His profound Words of Knowledge.  My life has ultimately been one long and glorious series of encounters since before I was even conceived.

Well, you can learn about the early days beginning with: https://thissideofthewhirlwind.wordpress.com/2016/05/04/this-side-of-the-whirlwind-true-life/

Okay, let’s jump to a time from August of 1984 thru the summer of ’85 when the Lord called me into ministry by sending eight identical or nearly identical prophecies (a fulfillment of a prayer and promise I’d made several years earlier).  The first seven prophecies are mentioned above during my cliff-side encounter with DAD/God the Father.

IN each of these prophecies the Lord said He was going to order my steps and open numerous paths of ministry so that a multitude of people would see and hear what God wanted me to say in His name.  At that time I didn’t have a clue what the Lord was talking about.  By the way all of this was to be accomplished in His perfect timing and with His divine purpose/s.  You can read about these prophecies verbatim in:

True Life 6> The Prophecy Continues:


True Life 7> Hearing God Audibly (“Have I fulfilled this prophecy in your life?” No my Lord.)


True Life 5-7> Cleaning up a Few Details


I hope these True-Life stories bless you with a deeper walk with Jesus.

Believe it or not… there is a very good reason I’m sharing these events with you.

Years later, through a different set of six identical prophecies, the Lord spoke to me and through me as He called me out of the workforce and out of all ministry and sent me on a protracted faith walk.  In this faith-walk, the Lord had me remain (for the most part) in my home until God would tell me otherwise.  Remember, follow your last set of orders until they are changed by the King.

The following prophecy began in 1990 and continued for more than 28 years.

In case you’re wondering… the Lord did not require me to remain literally in my home or on my property; rather, I was to pull away from everyone and everything I’d previously known and spend my life in and around my home growing in the things of God.  I was to learn His Word and grow in His grace.  Believe it or not, it has been a tough prophecy to obey.  I would not recommend this walk with God to anyone.

So, in (THIS) Word of Knowledge – given 6 times – over 5 months, the Lord said He was pulling me out of Ministry and out of the workforce and sending me into obscurity where I was to remain until He instructed me otherwise… and so I/we/my family waited on the Lord.  Removal from the work-force and ministry was directed to me.

Then in 1998, now 8 years later, I was in a Christian bookstore looking over a book regarding the Pre-Tribulation Rapture teachings.

I began thumbing through the book when the Lord spoke into my spirit and mind saying, “I don’t want you reading anything anyone else has written regarding the End of Days.  I also want you to stop watching the News on television or listening to the News on the Radio or reading the News in any Newspapers.”  Though I didn’t know why these things were important at that time… I obeyed.

Again, another 8 years later, now 16 years had passed and I was now in that place of utter obscurity, waiting on the Lord, waiting for another Word of Knowledge to please turn me loose.

Here is what the Lord sent: the Lord spoke to me and said He wanted me to go to a Pastor’s conference in Phoenix, Arizona which was taking place in March.

Then from March of 2006 until the summer of 2006 the Lord sent several prophetic Words of instructions.  Ultimately, the Words of the Lord instructed me to write a book on the End of Days, the Great Tribulation and (to me) several completely new concepts.

In March, while I was at the Pastor’s conference in Phoenix, the Lord spoke just a few Words; He said, “Habakkuk 2:3 in the NIV”.  That was it!

Then about one week later, while we were still in the month of March the Lord sent an old friend to our home and recording studio (ostensibly to record).  However, before we had a chance to start recording our lady friend Joni said she’d received a Word from the Lord that morning and she wanted to share the message with me before recording.  I told her to go for it, so Joni pulled out her “NIV” Bible and turned to Habakkuk 2:2-3 which says:

Then the LORD replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. 3 For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.”      (Habakkuk 2:2-3 NIV)

Joni then turned to the book of Joel, chapter 2: verses 28-32 which refers to the End of Days and the Blood-Moons and the coming of the great and terrible Day of the Lord.  This passage in Joel speaks of the sun, moon and stars being darkened; you know, “The Day of the Lord”;  All End-Times related imagery.

Then, near the end of the summer, 2006, the Lord speaks to me again and tells me to write a book containing that information which the Prophets Daniel and John were told to conceal in (Daniel 8:14-26; Daniel 12:4-9).  In these passages Daniel was told to shut up the words and seal the book until the time of the end; then in Revelation 10:1-11 John is told to write not the words that the Seven Thunders had uttered. Consider, the vision Daniel experienced in Daniel 12:5-7 is nearly identical to the vision John experiences in Revelation 10:1-11.  Coincidence? Noooo!

So I wrote the book which the Lord commanded.  Could this be the reason God sent me into obscurity?  That book is called:

“This Side of the Whirlwind, the Coming Apocalypse.”

You should know this is part 3 of a three part blog:

I can honestly say I had not heard of most of this information UNTIL God revealed it over the next ten years through divine revelation.

Just so you know…

There are zero/NO new scriptures; rather, God removed a set of blinders from my eyes.  These are the same blinders God placed on EVERY person’s eyes until “the Time of the END” had come in accordance with God’s purposes and promises as written in Daniel 8:14-26; Daniel 12:4-9; and Revelation 10:1-7.  You SHOULD read these passages for yourself.

Think about it…

Nearly half of ALL End Times information was concealed “BY GOD” until (as Daniel puts it) the Time of the End.

I recommend you get a copy of “This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse” and compare it (especially the ‘Day of the Lord’ chart on page 252) then do your dead level best to find one principle error on any of the 416 pages of the book, “This Side of the Whirlwind”.

Lastly, God called me into His service before I was even born and sent a prophet to my parent’s home one year before my birth and prophesied my birth would take place in 12 months.  And of course it came to pass exactly as foretold or I wouldn’t be writing this story as I am.

I encountered an Angel at the age of nine and was immediately filled with the Holy Spirit and began to hear God’s voice with clarity; leastwise, until I became much older and then God’s Voice became quieter and quieter.

In the summer of my twelfth year the Lord asked me this question, “Why was Jesus’ ministry only three and a half years?”

I didn’t have an answer to that question until I began writing “This Side of the Whirlwind” some 34 years later.

At age 20 I was serving in Italy, in the US Army, in 1979, when the Lord gave me a song titled, “Come To Me.”

Interestingly, for years I didn’t know what the song actually meant or represented so whenever I’d perform the song I’d offer $100.00 to anyone who could explain what the song meant.  No one ever collected.

Then years later as the Lord was presenting the book “This Side of the Whirlwind” I discovered the song contained elements that were specifically pertinent to the End Time, Latter Days message only found in our book.

Over the years I have received well over 100-150 prophecies, maybe even more than 200, Words of Knowledge and or visions.  As mentioned earlier, every one of these divine messages have come to pass with the exception of maybe 3 or 4; still waiting to find out about those 3 or 4.

From 2006 to 2016 the Lord consistently conveyed that previously concealed message about the End of Days/Great Consummation which Daniel and John were instructed to withhold from the Body of Christ and world.

Every word I have shared with you in these True-Life posts are true to the best of my knowledge.

I have had and continue to have an incredible life filled with encounters with the Almighty.

I don’t know why and don’t care to question it more than I have already.

I am just eternally grateful.

So… feel free to contact me at any time: thissideofthewhirlwind@gmail.com..

May the Lord bless you and keep you and cause His face to shine upon you in Jesus holy name, amen!
