If we have built our own altar to turn away from the LORD and to offer burnt offerings and grain offerings, or to sacrifice fellowship offerings on it, may the LORD himself call us to account.Jos. 22
"But many of you are still building altars even today. You are building and erecting altars in your own name, says the Lord. You have gathered stones and have piled them up high. These "stones" are the crowning achievements that you have done. They have been set on top of each other, one by one. But what are you offering to Me? I say that these altars are not pleasing in my sight. They are not consecrated. They are not holy. Just as I came and drove out the money changers, I will demolish these altars. For many of you honor your own ministries and not Me."
"Remember Elijah at Mount Carmel? He called down fire from heaven and it burned up the altars and the water that was there. Those prophets of Baal had been dancing and performing all day long. I tell you that I see antics in the church. I tell you that I see pretentiousness. My church was never meant to be a circus. "
"Place your hearts on my altar and then I will be pleased. Gather stones of repentance and then it will be consecrated. "
1CO 4:14 I am not writing this to shame you, but to warn you, as my dear children.  Even though you have ten thousand guardians in Christ, you do not have many fathers, for in Christ Jesus I became your father through the gospel.
"You are not your own. You have been bought with a price. Your lives are not your own. So in turn, what you have gone through is not your own as well. For you that have fared well in these journeys, learn how you can instruct others in the faith about them. See how you can offer them hope in the midst of the storm. While there are many instructors in the faith there are not too many fathers. A father not only learns how he can instruct, but he offers hope and compassion to those around him. A father knows what is good for his earthly children. He would not offer them a stone when they asked for bread. But he would also see that the things that they are going through would prove to be valuable later. For those of you that are fathers, identify with the needs of those around you. Spur them onto good works. But encourage them to stay in the midst of the trial. For there is fruit to be gained from it, and there is maturity that will come from it as well. "
"YOUR TRIALS ARE NOT YOUR OWN."
RO 5:1 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,  through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.
RO 5:20 The law was added so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more,  so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--  not by works, so that no one can boast.  For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.EPH 2
(The Lord showed me an Old Testament scroll. It was set against a simple background and it was facing outwards. While it was opened, I noticed a much smaller book that was being opened up right in front of the scroll. It was much thicker in pages and had a large and complete binding around it. While it seemed to be smaller in size, it made up for this in content and in the "meat" of it. Then suddenly from the midst of this book there was a cord that ran with a plug-in attached to it. This plug-in had a power source running throughout it and I saw the power that vibrated through it. It was a steady stream of current that wound around in spirals and went into a power source. Behind this power source, there was yet another power source that was plugged in somewhere that fed this book. This book was set ride beside the Old Testament scroll and it was noticeably different in content and in the power that it held.)
"The law was given to help my people and to become a custodian for them. But at a sufficient time I chose to offer grace for all mankind. Grace and truth have been given. The pages that are found within grace are held in power for you They are electrified through the word. You will find that they have a power source that will feed you in all ways. The law came to prepare you and to give you a conduct of living. But you had to follow all the rules that were contained within it. But now the greater commandment is given unto you. This commandment is not to be rigidly followed. It is not a matter of do this and don't do that. But it is a matter of being intimately involved with Me and allowing my word and my spirit to infuse your life. "
"Allow my grace to work in your lives, my people. Allow it to empower you. Allow it to equip you and to forgive you. Don't follow the old pattern but follow the new pattern. Don't be bound by rules and regulations, but live in the freedom of my grace. "
AC 15:22 Then the apostles and elders, with the whole church, decided to choose some of their own men and send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas. They chose Judas (called Barsabbas) and Silas, two men who were leaders among the brothers.
AC 15:30 The men were sent off and went down to Antioch, where they gathered the church together and delivered the letter.  The people read it and were glad for its encouraging message.  Judas and Silas, who themselves were prophets, said much to encourage and strengthen the brothers.  After spending some time there, they were sent off by the brothers with the blessing of peace to return to those who had sent them.  But Paul and Barnabas remained in Antioch, where they and many others taught and preached the word of the Lord.
 Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. Acts 20
"I say that there is no revival upon the land at this time. There is much experience in the spirit. There is a lot of revelation. There is a lot of gifting, but there is very little revival. When you come together the same structure still exists. You may have the new wine, but you still have the old wineskins. The structure of your services and the administration of it shows that you are still following the old pattern. The structure must come down. Ever since the time of the Middle Ages there has been a man that has been appointed to be in charge. But I tell you that that man has not followed the pattern that was set up. I did not appoint shepherds to rule over my church. Look over the pattern that was established in the early church in the book of Acts. I tell you that pastors were not the ruling order. Apostles, prophets, and teachers came to help establish that order Even when you have the new wine, its taste has become sour. It is still the old pattern and it is still the old tabernacle. There is to be a plurality of leadership. Elders have been appointed to help govern the church, but prophets, apostles and teachers are to help in this process. Change the government of the church and you will have revival."<P.
JN 1:14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
 The greatest among you will be your servant.  For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. Matt. 23
"For too many years many have tried to be great in themselves, but I say that those ministries will not last. For it is an abomination to Me and the stench of it has reached my throne. When I smell this stench I do not hear your pleas or listen to your prayers, for your prayers come from a heart that is not pure. Your prayers come from someone who has elevated themselves. How then can you be effective? How then can you reach the multitudes? How then can you release from bondage those who are held in prison? "
"Behold, I will take away those things that I have given to you. I will take away the revelatory gifts. I will take away those things that have made you great. And then for a season you will think about these things. And if after your thinking and you have come to understand what I have said, then I will return your ministries back unto you. If I see anymore of what was done earlier, then your ministries will be taken away from you forever. If however, your heart is truly repentant, and you consider these things and they change, then your ministries will be my ministries. For you all are called to great things but they are to be great in my kingdom and not your own. "
MT 25:37 "Then the righteous will answer him, `Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?  When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?  When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?'
MT 25:40 "The King will reply, `I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'
"Give Me your hearts my people. Let Me shape that secret sanctuary there. Give Me of yourselves. I will pour forth my spirit unto you. In these days I will pour it forth like the river; and in that day you will surely see that river rising. And that river which was once a gentle brook will flow, and will continue to flow, to the ocean of my riches. Of my bounty will I give in this hour. I will give and I will not hold back. For too long my children have been begging bread. I will not have them going around like that. For too long many have been neglected in this hour. I say that I will bring back mercy in the churches. I will bring in the destitute. I will bring in the weary. I will bring in the lonely and the estranged. For too long you have ignored these, my children. I will pour forth my spirit to embrace these. As I said unto John, 'Behold your mother.' And I would also say that these are your mothers and your fathers. These are your sons and daughters. These are your brothers and sisters."
"I have had enough of programs. I have had enough of your man-made organizations. Will you embrace those that I bring to you? Will you wash their feet? Will you lay your lives down for them? What have your conferences done for you? What strategies have they given to you? What new revelations and insights have you gained? What speakers have you flocked to go and see? Surely there have been great things said and done. Are any of those things as great as giving a child a drink of water? Surely, as you have done it unto the least of one of these then you have done it unto Me. "
"So, are you going to act like my church or not? Are you going to go on the same way? How many of you were destitute? How many of you were lonely or estranged? Did I take you in?
"Do the same as well."
 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Eph. 6
(The Lord showed me a man, a warrior, that held a sword in his hand. This sword though, was broken about half of the way up. I watched as he tried to battle the serpent, the devil. He could not fight against him though, because of his broken sword. The enemy was beginning to defeat him. I then saw the sword reformed and was complete. A spear was given to the warrior and he threw it at the dragon. The dragon receded, and left from where he had come, and went behind a chamber door.)
"The weapons that many of you have been using have not been effective. Truly, the reason is because they have been your weapons and not my own. You are to use what I give to you. Prayer is a necessary weapon. But it is not to be a prayer without my Holy Spirit in it. Pray with all fervency, and stand your ground, and the enemy will flee."
(Then I saw a man dressed as a warrior who shot a flaming arrow into the sky. This arrow was shot and seemed to hit the eagle who flew towards me. Then a chariot approached going at great speed. Horses emerged and were running swiftly upon the earth. They came into my field of vision and then vanished, as quickly as they had come.)
(Now I saw the eagle soaring again, but it held something in its talons. The sky was dark. There was a huge bag that it held and it carried this net, or bag, to a safe place. In this net were several baby eagles. They hadn't formed their wings or plumage yet, and were not moving. It came to a nest were once there had been eggs. It was now empty. The eagle had come to bring the babies here so that they would be safe. I now watched as the eagle left the nest. It flew with great strength and determination upon the wind. The sky above was dark, but it was determined. It dipped and came towards the ground. Many arrows were being shot at it. None of them though, seemed to harm or hinder its plight or purpose. It came to where those that had been shooting the arrows. Then it spread its wings over the man and covered it completely. It had rid it of its arrows and this was done away with.)
"This eagle represents my prophetic ministry. Many things have been shot at it lately. There are those who are younger; and those who are more mature have hidden the younger ones safely. Some of the younger ones have stepped out into the ministry too soon but I will protect them and keep them from danger. "
ISA 40:3 A voice of one calling:"In the desert prepare the way for the LORD; make straight in the wilderness a highway for our God.
"You will be shut out of the churches, but that does not mean that you are not to carry out my word. A time is coming when those who shut the doors to you think that they will be doing me a favor. Do you think that I was not persecuted? You are called to suffer some of the same things. But inspite of all this persecution, I will open doors for you. I have said that I will go before you. Surely, I will burn a trail before you. Surely, that trail will be seen. Surely, my servants will walk in that trail. And along this trail there will be a standard that will be lifted, an ensign, and on this signpost it will read: "There is to be a company of prophets who carry out my will in this hour, and they will be gathered together to speak to the walls of Jericho 'Come down!'
JER 31:4 I will build you up again and you will be rebuilt, O Virgin Israel. Again you will take up your tambourines and go out to dance with the joyful.
(The Lord showed me a scene of a man who was in a boat. In this boat the man was paddling very slowly down the river. He seemed to not be getting very far in his journey, and it almost appeared that he was not getting anywhere at all. Then a waterfall appeared that took him and his boat down it. This waterfall was very powerful and beautiful. I saw him at the bottom of it where the spray and foam were bubbling up all over. Then in the midst of the foam and spray there came forth various instruments that were playing music. There was a violin, a tambourine, and even bagpipes.)
(Now the scene changed and I saw a door. A key was given to open the door and there behind the door was an elaborately designed chest of some type. I watched as the chest was opened up. There were pearls and various necklaces and jewelry within it. In the midst of it all there was a cello. Someone picked up the instrument and began playing it. They continued to play, even in the midst of fires burning all around. The fires continued and then I saw a scroll that was burning on the edges, and written in the midst of the scroll it said: "Sing praises unto God with harp and violin.")
The Lord then said:
"Music is an important thing to Me. As you begin to praise Me and worship with Me, music ushers in my spirit. Even in the midst of calamity music will help calm the storm. It calms the storm and it soothes the savage beast. There is a music within the hills and the valleys. It plays a lyrical piece before Me. Remember how David played his harp before Saul? That is what helped soothe his melancholy nature. "
"Before you go into battle seek Me with your whole heart. Sing unto Me, and seek Me with music. Then I will rise within you because of this music being poured forth before Me."
 Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels.  And the Lord's servant must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. 2 Tim. 2:23
 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.  These have come so that your faith--of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire--may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. I Peter 1:5
"To those who are like the church of Philadelphia, endure as a faithful soldier. Be ready, in season and out of season. Know that these trials are preparing you for that time. Know that I will not take you "out" of that time, but "through it." Be ready, I say, and do not fear. And do not get caught-up in senseless arguments about when these things will happen. But also do not delude yourselves about thinking that you will be taken out of everything that is coming upon this earth. "
1JN 2:1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense--Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.  He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.
RO 7:21 So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me.  For in my inner being I delight in God's law;  but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members.  What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?  Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.
(The Lord showed me a vine plant of some type, that was growing and growing. I watched as this plant encircled and spread itself around in front of me. It went around and around, spiraling in different directions, and filled my field of vision. Then I saw a single tree that was barren and dead. It had nothing green on it, or blossoms of any type. I wondered at what it meant.)
"The vineyard represents the state of affairs in the world. Surely, as one plant grew and spread, it became greater and greater. One nation's problems becomes another nation's problems. No one country is an island and is separated from the world. "
"Why do the nations rage, and why do they lift up their voices? Surely, the people plot in vain without my counsel, says the Lord. Surely, there is no rest to be found for them. "
(Again now, the Lord showed the scene of the vines, but now they were lush and green and smaller at first. There were perhaps half a dozen of them, planted side by side, with each other. I then noticed something very strange: Each of the plants or vines, were joined together; they were somehow clasping each other. At each of the sides of the vine plants, there was, as it were, a hand, and this hand was joined to the next vine plant in a gesture of prayer or concern.)
"Join in prayer for those nations who struggle with each other. "
JAS 1:13 When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;  but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed.  Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
PS 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. PS 46:2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, PS 46:3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Selah
"This fire has gotten out of hand but it hasn't gotten out of hand as much as the sin that is in this world. This fire has burned up everything in its path. It has burned up trees, and homes and livestock. The fury of it has caused it to have a "life of its own." But you see, that is the way that sin is. It has a life of its own. When sin takes over it burns-up everything in its path. I am not one that wants sin or fires to take over the land. But if you let a little sin enter into your life then it can grow. It is like a fire; it eats away at its members. This sin has plagued this world for thousands of years, but my Son has taken on the sins of the whole world. "
"This fire, while being very destructive, will be quelled by my spirit. The fire eats up the land, and many people are affected by the onslaught of it. There are other catastrophes that will happen upon the land. The elements and nature are always prone to be in an upheaval. I want my people to be ready, no matter what happens in this life. If the mountains fall into the sea I will be there, says your Lord. If an earthquake demolishes a land and its people, I will be there. If a dam breaks and its waters overflow, I will be there. "
"There are things that will intensify upon this land. There are disasters, both from the natural, and from man, that are coming. But I will save my people out of the chaos. I will reach out my hand unto those who call to Me. I AM not a God who does not care. Call upon Me and I will answer. "
"Tempers rise and flare in the cities...Brother goes against brother, and the innocent are caught in the middle. With the heat of the Summer and tempers rising, violence pours out in the city. "
"Beware of threats from a foreign land. Beware of the fourth of July. Stand your ground and keep a watch. The enemy plans another attack, so fortify your strength. Stand united in your borders. Stand together. Let the bell of freedom ring. This land, while still having corruption and sin in it, has gone through a trial, and 'I have seen how you have pulled together.' Let it not be said that this land is devoid of brotherhood. Let it not be said that there is no compassion to be seen. Pull together and stand together, not as a splintered nation, but as one who has gone through the intense heat, and one that will learn the cause of freedom. "
10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
"Stand when you don't feel like standing. Stand when no one else around you is standing. Stand when you're not ready to stand. The enemy will come upon you when you least expect it. He comes when you're least aware of him. But he will not get you off track if you stand your ground in Me. "
"But when you stand, stand ready in Me. Stand with all of my armor on. Stand as a ready warrior. Stand with your feet shod with the gospel of peace. Stand with the hope of your salvation. Stand with the shield of faith. Stand with the breastplate of righteousness. Stand with the belt of truth. Stand with the sword of the spirit. With all of my armor on you will then be ready. "
"Some stand ready in their own strength. They think that they can stand their ground against the enemy on their own, but you are not equipped to fight him on your own. His weapons and his warfare are spiritual. You need to fight spiritual with spiritual. It is not a physical battle. He would laugh if you would think that you could battle with him in this way. But I tell you that you have already won. I triumphed over him. I conquered him, and I tell you that you will conquer him as well. All you have to do is to stand with your weapons ready. "
"When you are weak you can be strong in Me. The best way to be ready is to be dependent upon Me. If you are dependent upon Me then you will not put your strength in your own flesh. You will not succomb to thinking that your own power will prevail. These weapons of mine are not carnal, but they are spiritual and are mighty in pulling down strongholds. "
"Be equipped and be ready for the battles that are ahead. "
(The Lord showed me in a vision a kettle of soup that was cooking on a stove. The person was stirring and stirring it. It seemed to be something that might be good to eat. As it began to boil more and more, I looked at the contents closer. There in the midst of the soup were bugs and other things. As I continued to look, there were indeed flies in the soup. It wasn't something pleasant to look at, and I thought that this certainly wouldn't be something good or healthy to eat. I noticed one fly in particular and saw it close-up. I noticed its eyes and then suddenly, the fly released larvae or material from it. This came out of the fly and began to fill up the pot of soup.)
"Oh my people, this soup is indicative of what many of you are willing to eat. You think that you are partaking of healthy things. What is the meat and what are the vegetables that you are eating? Are you eating and partaking of my word, or are you partaking of another gospel? I say that there is death in the pot. Leave this soup alone and do not eat it. The enemy has tried to entice you with it. But my word is profitable and it will fill your bones with delight. The land is filled with this type of thing. Many have eaten of it. Truly these things can influence you. Truly, what you eat becomes a part of you. Many of you have not partaken of my food, says the Lord. Many of you compromise with the world's standards. How can you be a good reflection of Me if you do this? "
"I say, go back to the stove and prepare another meal. Fill it full of my holy word. It will surely satisfy, and it will surely give health to your bones. I have given of my body and my blood. Why would you eat something else? You need to be nourished and you need to be fed. Without a proper diet you will not be strengthened for the days ahead. You will be without sustenance and you will be without energy. But if you follow my directions and eat a proper diet then you will be sustained. "
"This man is indicative of those who have begun new ministries. You think that it is a proud achievement of what you have done. You think by your hands alone you have done this. I tell you that I am the Master Builder. You have made your ministries into idols. They have not been built for you to be honored by men. The building is nothing. The builders are nothing. It is only what you have built upon that matters. It is only the stone that is set at the bottom of this building that matters. During this season you will see many ministries rise and fall. See to it that you have built very carefully. Surely, I will take down the high towers. The sound of the collapse of many of these buildings will be heard. For it is only to be my kingdom and not your own. "
(The Lord showed me a single leaf that was opened up and rain drops were beginning to fall upon it. Then this leaf became a plant and was growing and thriving. I then saw a windmill and the windmill was churning out the water. However, it was in very deep water, almost like an ocean. It continued propelling the water around and around, and then the water became a waterfall. The waterfall cascaded to the earth and began falling upon someone. This person held a ceramic container and was filling the container from the waterfall.)
(Now the earth was filled with flowers, and they were blooming all around, many of which were pink. The earth then was rent open. It was as if a huge seam had been opened up in the ground. I saw the roots of trees and their underlying structure. Then the ground underneath was filled with lush grass, and it filled around the tree and the surrounding area. As I continued to look at the ground, I noticed a trench again, but now there was a carrot and then an onion in it. Both of these dropped out of view and settled down underneath the ground. It was as if they were being preserved, but then they dropped out of view and disappeared. )
The Lord then said:
"The meaning of this is that there are many fruits coming to the body of Christ. There are many characteristics of my nature that have been hidden from view. I will now display them though. This new rain will produce a strong character in my people. Down in the soil of your hearts there are things there that I am building. Remember that the seed planted on good soil will produce a hundredfold. What is the condition of your soil? What are the things that are hidden there within your soil? "
(The Lord now showed me an area of ground or soil. It appeared to be very dark and rich in nutrients. It was being shoveled over and over again. Then I saw a bug of some kind, a moth. A tool was being used to dig through the soil to search for anything hidden within it. Various types of bugs and debris were being taken out of the soil in this process. They would be extracted one by one. Then after this, I was shown a beautiful pink flower that had opened up. As I watched it however, it turned almost black and was without life. I wondered at this. )
"There are many in the body of Christ that seem to display my character. But over time that character turns dark. The soil that this character has been built into has not been a good one. Make sure that all of the weeds and the area around has been cleaned out. Then your soil will be productive. "
ISA 48:11 For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this.How can I let myself be defamed? I will not yield my glory to another.
The Lord then said:
"You will run and not be weary, but many of my prophets have become weary. I have shown many of my eagles in this hour various things that have been occurring upon the earth. I have been giving them warning about the impending things that have been occurring upon the earth. Some of them have almost fallen out of the sky because of these warnings. They have become frightened because of the things that they have seen. They have looked at these things intently. Still another group have performed many things with Me. They have however, put on a "big show for the body of Christ." They have been put on center stage to display these things. But I tell you, I will take away the podiums. I will take away the platforms; and then no longer will you will perform these incredible "feats." For you have tried to monopolize the body of Christ. The purpose of your ministries is not to "perform" The purpose is to speak forth my word and to spread my news to the people of this earth. No longer will I tolerate the side shows. No longer will I tolerate the circus. The time for these things is coming to an end. No longer will I tolerate the vain glory. These things are an abomination to Me. I merely want a servant who will do want I ask of him or her. I have asked for obedience and not self-glorification. "
EZE 40:48 He brought me to the portico of the temple and measured the jambs of the portico; they were five cubits wide on either side. The width of the entrance was fourteen cubits and its projecting walls were three cubits wide on either side.  The portico was twenty cubits wide, and twelve cubits from front to back. It was reached by a flight of stairs, and there were pillars on each side of the jambs.
"In this hour I am establishing wisdom in the hearts of my servants. "
(The Lord showed me a vision of a temple that had huge pillars supporting it in the front of it. There were several of these pillars, and the structure, itself, was mammoth in size. Then suddenly, the entire structure fell to the ground. It seemed to be rebuilt and then fall again to the ground. Then I watched as 3-4 pillars were brought forward to the front to my field of vision. For some reason it seemed that the structure had fallen because of the wrong type, or number of pillars that were supporting this structure. I then noticed that there was a man at the front who held a document, a blue print it seemed, in his hands. He was pondering how this structure might be built correctly so that the structure would stand, and would not fall to the ground again. I was then shown some of these pillars. I looked at one and noticed that it was fragmented. Down through the center of one of these pillars was where the rebar would be to support it. There were holes, chips, and entire sections of the pillar missing. The rebar inside of the pillar also seemed to be either weak or had fungus or some type of mold on it. I watched again and now saw several pillars that were being remade, and thus, were being set into position.)
The Lord then said:
"There are to be four pillars to be erected for this building. One of the foremost pillars in this structure is the pillar of wisdom. Without my wisdom this structure will surely not stand. Another pillar that is necessary in this hour is maturity. "
(Again I was shown the previous structure and now I noticed that instead of pillars, there were wooden posts that had been erected inside of the building, and they were being used as supporting beams rather than the pillars that would actually support the structure much easier and with much more strength and purpose. There were perhaps two of these beams and they had been set at angles instead of being erect, and thus, the entire building was not being supported well. Even the roof itself seemed to be falling down and decaying. There were old wooden shingles instead of a strong marble roof-line and molding that would normally be used in such a structure as this.)
The Lord again said:
"The third pillar that is needed in this hour is perserverance. For without endurance, you will not last through the battles. The last pillar is one of the most important of all. For without unity the building will surely fall. I am the master builder and I will bring these pillars into place. Do away with the old structure. Do away with the old system. For my church to be strong, these pillars need to be set into place."
JOEL 2:25 "I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten--the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm-- my great army that I sent among you.
"Promotions are coming for those who have stood their ground in Me. For many of you have waited long for my plans to unfold for you. The bells will ring and a new day will come forth. Out of your dry winters will come the spring of my glorious might. For I know the plans that I have for you, they are plans to prosper you and to give you hope and a future."
"And you will stand in the face of danger, and the Spirit that is in you will prevail. You will rise above the troubles of this present life and you will soar with Me in the heavenlies. You will sup with Me and you will hear what my Spirit has to say to you. Strategies will be given to you to fight against the enemy. The land will be taken back. Surely, the roadblocks will be taken away. "
"Surely, I will hasten these things and bring them to pass, says the Lord."
 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
"The swords of many of my people have not been used lately. Many have kept them hidden away. Some of them have gathered dust. But I say, 'It is time to take them out.' It is time to put on the whole armor of God. You need to be on the offensive with the enemy. A sword is of no use if it is put away. "
(The Lord now showed me a man who had been sleeping. There appeared to many who were sleeping around him. They had their swords upon them resting. But now the enemy had come and had begun to stab one of them, and the one was caught off-guard, so that he could not defend himself well against him. His sword appeared to be dull and was not sharp enough to battle against the foe. The enemy swung many times against him, seemingly with little effort. The warrior's sword was flimsy and weak to defend himself. )
Again the Lord said:
"Many of you have been caught off-guard against the enemy. You are sleeping and are not ready. Do you not know that he comes at a time when you least expect him to? Your swords are dull and are not equipped for battle. It is time for you to sharpen them and get them ready. Let Me help you in this process. Spend time in my word. Study it. Eat it. Devour it. Then when the enemy comes you will be ready for him. Then your swords will go down deep. Then the battle will be won. "
(Lastly the Lord showed me many different types of swords and knives. They were being held in several cloths and were now being taken out of their holders. The room was filled with them. He gave one to me and I was sharpening it on a stone. I watched as the edge of the tip of it become sharper and sharper. )
"It is time to pull-out all of the weaponry. It is time for my arsenal of weapons. I have certain swords ready for this hour. "
HAG 2:6 "This is what the LORD Almighty says: `In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land.  I will shake all nations, and the desired of all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,' says the LORD Almighty.
"There is idolatry in the house. It is idolatry of the highest order. There is idolatry within the house and it has spread throughout the church. For man has now begun to worship himself. It is a very subtle thing, for when a man or a woman spends more of their time thinking about themselves, rather than in worship of Me, then this is idolatry of the highest order. I will bring down those altars that you have created of yourselves. For those altars are not my altars, says the Lord. You are to worship the Lord your God with all your heart and soul and mind. This is the first commandment. How can you be my servants when all you think about is yourselves? You are consumed with your own feelings and agendas. Your own agendas dictate what you do each day. You are to redeem the time for the day is evil. There are only so many hours in a day. What do you do with that time that is given to you? How do you spend it? You have worshiped the creature rather than the creator. You spend your days thinking how you can get ahead. You spend your time thinking how others have wronged you. Surely, I say, those pillars and those altars will fall. Those who exalt themselves will be humbled, but those who humble themselves will be exalted. Truly, there is a shaking that is coming to the church. Truly, this shaking will affect all of my body. I will shake every pew. I will shake every corner. I will shake every leader. I will shake every servant. I will shake every church. I will shake the mountains and the valleys. I will shake the high places and the low. And truly, when I am done shaking, then my house will be in order. Truly, then will it be aligned with my Spirit. But you must put away your love of yourselves. Then you will be glorious. Then your praises will rise to Me in honor."
"My people, it is time to change your diet. Once you thought as a child and you acted like a child. It is now time to put away childish things. It is no longer time to "play at church." Be my church and grow up."
ISA 30:10 They say to the seers, "See no more visions!"and to the prophets, "Give us no more visions of what is right! Tell us pleasant things, prophesy illusions.
(The Lord showed me a scene that at first seemed to be peaceful, but it continued to bother me. As I watched, I saw containers or jugs that seemed to be filled with water. A heavy liquid was being poured back and forth from jug to jug. Then as I watched, the entire scene before me was filled with this heavy liquid. A stream of insects and debris was in these vessels and this is what made the mixture "heavy" in appearance. All before my eyes was filled with this mixture. A painting brush was painting or obscuring, the scene before me. It was as if everything was "veiled" before me and painted over with this liquid so that I could not see." Then the scene changed and I saw several dollar bills and currency before me. Everything was being packed away and neatly put together in a bundle.)
The Lord then said:
"Many have sought fame and money instead of my word. Many have sought fame instead of coming before Me. Many have compromised my word. Many have taken on the world in their search for fame. There are many that speak "sugary words" unto my people. Their words are seemingly filled with wonderful things; but I tell you that they are filled with the lies and the deceit of the enemy. It is a heavy liquid that obscures their vision. I will blind the eyes of these "prophets." I will make it so they will not see. For they will no longer guide my people. "
"I say to pray for my prophets who have been wrong to my word. Pray that they would not speak enticing words. Pray that they would speak the truth. Pray that they would be brought to their knees. I AM bringing a new breed of prophets to my body. They have weathered many winters, and they have been in my fiery furnace many times. They know my truth from being in my presence. They know what it's like to go against the majority. They will not compromise my word, and they will not water it down. They know the need of mercy but they also know the need of truth. "
"Oh my prophets, do not withhold the truth. Let my word go out into the fullness that it was intended to. Many will fall from pride at this time, but those who speak the truth will be preserved from it. "
"To every generation there is a purpose. To every generation there are times and seasons. The times and seasons have awaited the birth of these children. This is the Elijah generation, for they will go out with fire. I say, prepare ye the way of the Lord. Prepare the way of the Lord. This is the generation of my servants who will stand with Me in the inner court. They will serve Me as priests at my table. They will speak my words and they will perform my miracles. This is the Elijah generation. "
"Some look for it in music. Some look for it in art. Some look for it in poetry. Some may think that they find it in human love. Some seek it in their work. And some seek after it in many of the countless philosophies of this world. Many have sought after the meaning of life. Many have sought after about 'what is truth.'? But I tell you that truth can only be found in my son. He is the way, the truth, and the life. In Him, there is nothing that is not the truth. Be an expression of what my truth is. Show the world around you that I AM the truth. Pilate wondered what the truth was, and my son answered that he was the truth. Seek after my truth. Find it embodied in my word. Find it embodied in the words that "I was there in the beginning." Find it embodied in the words, "and the word became flesh and dwelt among you." Find it embodied in the words, "In him there is no darkness." Find it embodied in the words, "the mystery hidden for ages; Christ in you the hope of glory." Find it embodied in the words, "and he humbled himself and became a servant of all."
"Know what the truth is. Seek after it, more than you would silver and gold. Once you have found it, embrace it. Show the world around you truly, what the truth is. Let my truth be proclaimed from the housetops. Do not let it be hidden under a basket but proclaim it. "
"When will my church be built, you ask? When will we come unto maturity you wonder? When you put into practice the things that I've asked you to do. The need for prophetic vision is important and it must work together with those who are master builders in putting this into action. There is need for these things to be done. Plow the field and stir up the ground. Stir up your hearts and stir up the gifts that are within you. Now, have a battleplan for how to perform them. This will help bring my church unto maturity, and this will take you out of stagnancy."
EZE 37:4 Then he said to me, "Prophesy to these bones and say to them, `Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD!  This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.  I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.' "
EZE 37:7 So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone.  I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.
ISA 1:17 learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.
MT 7:24 "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
"There is a table that I spread out before you. It is the table of my feast. My feast is made up of my spiritual food. My spiritual food is not just joy and thanksgiving. You have heard it said that wisdom makes a man's face shine, but I would say that there is much more to it than that. True wisdom involves itself in the sorrows of this life. It does not ignore the problems of this life. It is true that I've called you to rise above the troubles of this life. I've called you to rise above those problems but not to ignore them. "
"Are you concerned about the problems of those around you? Are you concerned about the plight of the widow? Are you concerned about the homeless? Do you ignore those around you, or do you take on their burden? I chose to meet people where they were at. I offered them the gift of faith so that they could rise above their problems, but I was also not blind to the things that they faced. "
"Pray for those who are hurting around you. Understand where they are coming from. When you do this then you are truly my disciples. These are the things that I've called you to do. You were once a stranger and I called you to come in and sup with Me. I no longer call you a stranger but a friend. It is now time for you to offer others to come on in. Do not be a stranger to them. Remember that it is better to go to the house of mourning rather than to the house of feasting. IF you want to practice this wisdom then be a friend to those around you. True wisdom is found in putting to practice those things that I've called you to do. True wisdom is a relationship with Me but it is culiminated in action. My word states these things and makes it very clear that you are to follow them. "
"Be an expression of my word to those around you."
EZE 40:48 He brought me to the portico of the temple and measured the jambs of the portico; they were five cubits wide on either side. The width of the entrance was fourteen cubits and its projecting walls were three cubits wide on either side.  The portico was twenty cubits wide, and twelve cubits from front to back. It was reached by a flight of stairs, and there were pillars on each side of the jambs.
(Here the Lord showed me a corner of a foundation. It was all of rock and was around 10-12 tiers high, and was unfinished only for this side portion of the foundation. Each rock was square in appearance and was made of a quarried-type stone. I noticed however, that there was a small gap or hole, on the left side, about 3-4 tiers up on the foundation of this wall... The vision shifted and I again saw the side of a wall, but now the stones were brick and were smooth in appearance. A man was laying each brick into place with a trowel and the side of this wall was going along well, and was beginning to get quite high. However, I noticed that an arch was part of the architectural plan of the wall. In fact, it seemed that each wall was to have an arch built into its structural framework so that on each of the four walls there was to be an arch that opened up within the middle of each wall, thus producing a huge opening, but an elaborate plan and one that seemed to have purpose built into it. I now noticed that a huge pillar was being placed at one of the corners so that part of the top of the arch would rest upon this pillar. The person building the wall moved the entire section of the wall with his hands so that it would be able to rest upon this pillar. The pillar was Corinthian in appearance and seemed to be quite sturdy and able to help support the wall in each corner. Thus, there were to be four pillars it seemed, for this building.)
"My people, as you continue in your building, make room for the pillars that will be placed at each of the corners of this building. Each building then, will have a pillar like this. These pillars are not without purpos for these pillars represent my plan. These pillars are the pillars of my kingdom. They will be named thus:
One pillar signifies my truth.
The second pillar signifies my grace that is being extended to all.
The third pillar signifies the need for unity within my building.
The fourth pillar signifies the need for forgiveness.
"Without each of these pillars, the building will not stand. Allow the room for these pillars when you are doing your building. "
JN 4:34 "My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.  Do you not say, `Four months more and then the harvest'? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.  Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together.  Thus the saying `One sows and another reaps' is true.  I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor."
... Yes, this was written for us, because when the plowman plows and the thresher threshes, they ought to do so in the hope of sharing in the harvest. I CO. 9:10
(The Lord was showing me a scene of people in a great wheat field and they were bent over gathering the stocks of grain. They were using a scythe-like tool to gather the wheat with. Then I saw the wheat field again and some of it had been cut. There was a combine off to my right side in my field of vision. I watched as the field was being cut and as it passed through the chambers of the machine. Finally, the wheat was separated from the chaff and the grain was being deposited in the bin behind the combine where it would be made ready. Then I saw blackbirds who came and perched within the bin of the combine. I watched as the grain was being eaten all up and some of the rest of it slipped down back within the machine and was gone. )
The Lord then said:
"This is the meaning of this vision":
"Harvesters have sent out unto the ends of the earth. They have been sent out with their "tools." They have gathered in a great harvest. But in the midst of this harvest, the enemy has come in. Then enemy has come in to steal the souls of many. But behold, much of the harvest is still left."
ISA 42:20 You have seen many things, but have paid no attention;your ears are open, but you hear nothing."
ISA 29:10 The LORD has brought over you a deep sleep:He has sealed your eyes (the prophets); he has covered your heads (the seers).
The Lord then said:
"Arrow after arrow is being shot at my holy prophets. There are arrows of the enemy that are being shot at him. These arrows are being shot in a most deadly way. These arrows are coming in the form of false revelation. For the prophet thinks that he is receiving from Me but he is not. His ear is not attuned to my Spirit. He is hearing from another source. Come let us reason together. What are the words that you hear? Do they come as a "fresh wind" to your ear, or are they disguised in the frame of pretense? Do you speak out of the passion of your own heart, or have you felt the burden of my heart? Are you a guide to those who need your light, or are you the blind leading the blind? "
"You know who you are and you will be held accountable for everything that you have said. It is a serious thing to speak in my name. It is not something that I take lightly. Do not speak in presumption. If you have not heard from Me then do not speak. It is now time for judgment to begin with the household of God. I will deal with those who have not spoken rightly in my name. They will be brought down. Whoever has spoken from their own high tower, will have that tower crumble to the ground. Do not build towers to the sky in your own name. This is a time when I will test every man's work. This is a time to discern how you are building. Are you building with the things of my Spirit or the things of man? It will be seen which thing will last. "
"I WILL EXPOSE THOSE WHO SPEAK WRONGFULLY IN MY NAME"
JN 14:25 "All this I have spoken while still with you.  But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you
AC 2:22 "Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.
"For I can teach you all things, says the Lord. My anointing that resides in you, can teach you all things. So at unexpected times expect unexpectant things from Me. Surely, this is a season of miracles, says the Lord. There are different seasons that the church goes through. Surely, says the Lord, this is the season for miracles. This is the season to receive back from Me all that has been stolen. Nothing will come near your tent or will harm you; and my army will be equipped with every armament. You will go from glory unto glory. Those who have a "death sentence" pronouced upon them will receive life in my name. Finances will be restored and doors will open up for ministry. Entire families will worship Me in Spirit and in truth. There will be miracles of many kinds and in different degrees. Mark your calenders as "A Season of Miracles."
