2KI 4:38 Elisha returned to Gilgal and there was a famine in that region. While the company of the prophets was meeting with him, he said to his servant, "Put on the large pot and cook some stew for these men."

2KI 4:39 One of them went out into the fields to gather herbs and found a wild vine. He gathered some of its gourds and filled the fold of his cloak. When he returned, he cut them up into the pot of stew, though no one knew what they were. [40] The stew was poured out for the men, but as they began to eat it, they cried out, "O man of God, there is death in the pot!" And they could not eat it.

PR 18:21 The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

"Behold, a storm has been brewing the east. It is the type of storm that would not be readily seen at first. I tell you that not all will know of its coming. What would it be that you would see? Behold, you would see fire and rain. You would see death in the pot For truly, there is death in the pot. I tell you truly, that there is a word that is going out that is producing death. For many speak words of death. But there is a different type of death as well. There are some of your churches and your ministries that produce this type of death. For there is no life in their words. Many are ensnared by the words that they speak. I tell you, be careful of your words. Be careful, for your words are powerful. But who can control the tongue? I tell you, that to those who misuse my words, I can take your ministries away, so know what you speak of, and be careful what you speak. These are important times. Do not presume to know everything. In time, my light will shed abroad all these things. "

1CO 11:23 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, [24] and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me." [25] In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me." [26] For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes.

REV 14:9 A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: "If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, [10] he, too, will drink of the wine of God's fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. [11] And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name." [12] This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God's commandments and remain faithful to Jesus.

The Lord showed me a cup that was filled with liquid. The cup looked very much like a simple coffee cup. It was then handed to someone to drink. The person immediately began to drink from it and swallowed the liquid. However, after a very short time they began to vomit. They vomited and as I watched, all of this stuff came upon the ground. It looked like material of some sort, but upon closer inspection, I noticed that what I thought were strands of cloth from some beautiful brocade, were actually pieces of chains that were part of this material. Now I saw a second cup that was offered up for someone to drink. This one was in the shape of a simple glass. The person took the glass and began to drink it. Immediately I noticed a change begin to happen to the person. I noticed that the person's torso was essentially a ribcage and was devoid of any meat or muscle tissue. Now, after drinking this, their form began to take on flesh and their bones were "nourished" with this liquid that they had partaken. It seemed to be a very wholesome thing for them.

"I tell you that many people have drunk from the world's cup. They think that they will get many things from it, but I tell you that there is bondage found within it. It is a trap, and it will take you in to its own prison. What many think are riches are really a trap. But I tell you that I have a cup to offer you. It will bring nourishment to your bones. It will put flesh and blood there. For the drink that I offer is my word and my Son. Eat of it and drink of it. Give of my cup to others to drink of as well. I tell you that this world is filled with people who are imprisoned by these things. They have chains of their won making. They are prisoners of what they drink of. "

"Will you partake of the world's cup or of mine? There is a wrath to be pourd out upon those who partake of the world's cup. These days are racing towards that final day. Drink of my cup so that you will be saved on that day. Which cup will you drink from?"

[13] until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Eph. 4

PS 91:5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,

JER 23:25 "I have heard what the prophets say who prophesy lies in my name. They say, `I had a dream! I had a dream!' [26] How long will this continue in the hearts of these lying prophets, who prophesy the delusions of their own minds? [27] They think the dreams they tell one another will make my people forget my name, just as their fathers forgot my name through Baal worship. [28] Let the prophet who has a dream tell his dream, but let the one who has my word speak it faithfully. For what has straw to do with grain?" declares the LORD. [29] "Is not my word like fire," declares the LORD, "and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?

"I tell you that I am with my people this year. I am with them through the storms of this year. I tell you that terrorism has made its mark on the people of the United States, but you are not to fear the arrow that flies by day, or the terror that comes by night. I tell you that I will gather you under the pinions of my wings. I tell you that certain cities have been marked out as certain targets of the enemy. There are plans being made. I tell you that the power of the enemy is attempting to strike down many of these cities. But these plans will be of no avail, for they will backfire. "

"I tell you that there will be great things in store for my people this year. For many of the years that you have been hidden you will now come out into the open. I tell you that many of you are coming unto full stature. Because of the storms that you have managed to prevail, and the trials that you have endured, that because of these things, you are now coming unto full stature. So, when the storms come, I am asking you to prevail through them. I do not take the storms away but I provide a way for you to make it through them. "

"There has been much talk about the next President. I tell you that the tide is turning. Watch and be alert. There are different voices out there that speak of these things. Whose report are you going to believe? Surely, I will see you through all of these things. When there are differing voices even amongst the prophets, then come to Me and I will give you clarity. For many still see through a mirror dimly . "

JN 12:35 Then Jesus told them, "You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. The man who walks in the dark does not know where he is going. [36] Put your trust in the light while you have it, so that you may become sons of light." When he had finished speaking, Jesus left and hid himself from them.

"This year as I have said, will be filled with many things. There will be smoke and fire. There will be wars and rumors of wars.I tell you that the time is very near upon you when the man of perdition will come upon the scene. I tell you that he will comewhen you least expect him to. I tell you that the democratic race will go to a man who will change the direction of this country.The White House will be filled with new and different policies. I have warned you that these days would happen. You have beenthrust into war, and you have tasted the death of many of your young, but I tell you that this is nothing compared to what iscoming. For sun will shine and moon will arise at night. The days of night will come. For it will appear to be very dark andbleak at times. But those who put your trust in Me, are to set your minds on things above. For this earth as you know it,will not always last. "

"Many will come unto my light this year. Many will come unto the light of my glory. For when there is great darkness, my lightwill shine even the more. But I tell you that the enemy has many schemes upon his mind and heart. For he knows that his time isshort. For I tell you that deception will run rampant this year. You will see more and more instances of cultic and witchcraft usedupon the scene. Those who follow the stars will be consulted more and more. But many also, of my sons and daughters, willdemonstrate my glory. So when the darkness falls, seek for my light and glory."

COL 3:1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. [2] Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. [3] For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. [4] When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

Matthew 5:18 I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

"I would tell you that this year will be filled with many things. Everything is coming to a head. I tell you that this year will be filled with many problems. They won't be problems on a personal scale, but they will be problems on a world scale. For I tell you that everything that has been spoken in my word will be coming to a fruition. The increase of wickedness will be plainly seen. The deceiver will be employing his band of wickedness like never before. But those who are strong in Me will grow into great stature. They will weather the storms and they will be a light unto many. The trial and the war that has been in Iraq will no longer be in the forefront as it has been. No longer will my servants have to beg for bread. For I will provide for their every need. So I tell you, many will go on to righteousness, but many also, will be involved in darkness. No more will my servants be kept from doing what I've called them to do. The world will go on as it has been prophesied. I tell you that my hand is upon my servants to do my pleasure in them. The world will hate you because it hated Me. I have overcome the world and I have also overcome the world in you. So, set your sights upon things above and not on things upon this earth. For when the wind blows, and many of the things upon this earth are blown, your hearts and minds will not be unsettled. For many of the people who do not know Me will become more and more unsettled. This year is the culmination of many things. It is the culmination of natural disasters, and it is also a time when those who draw the sword will die by it. How does one prepare for days such as these? It is not by the world's standards, but it is by going into that inner chamber and spending time with Me. It is a year of problems and of possibilities."

PR 6:6 Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise!

2PE 1:19 And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

"Behold, there will be new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered nor will they come to mind. Behold, look into the future and you will see that I have good plans for my people. And yet, to get to those good times, one must go through the tunnel first. For this tunnel represents many of the events that are coming upon this earth. Those apocalyptic events that are outlined in the book of Revelation are soon to follow. So, take provision for those days. How would one plan for famine? How would one plan for an economic collapse? How would one be prepared? Before the cold weather comes the squirrel gathers his nuts. Consider all the work that an ant does. If nature knows these things then how can my people be devoid of understanding? "

"I tell you that I will be a lighthouse to my people during those dark days. You won't have to grope in the darkness. But the spirit of this age has blinded many of my people. Many cannot see and many will not know of these dangers. And yet, if someone told them, would they believe them? Those that I've called as my prophets will show the way. They will point out the path to take. But will you listen to them or will you go on your merry way? For if you do, then you will prosper. I will give you the understanding, and I will shed abroad my light. "

MT 24:9 "Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. [10] At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, [11] and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. [12] Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, [13] but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. [14] And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

GAL 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

"From the north my winds will blow upon the land. They will blow a wind of urgency. There is an "unsettling" in the air. For I warn you , my people, for the new year will bring a need for added strength and resilience. For you will be tested in ways that you know not. The enemy is pulling out all of his armies to battle against the heavenly hosts. He knows those weak areas. But I tell you, if you have all of my armor on then you will not fall prey to his devices. His strength is only what you allow him to do. "

(I then saw a strange thing. The Lord showed me a scene of a statue, and the more I looked at I noticed that it was the Statue of Liberty. But now instead of it standing erect and tall, it was falling. It was falling to the ground because people were pushing it over. I saw it fall to the ground and land in the water below and as it fell, parts of it came crashing down into smaller fragments or pieces. People were then looting parts of it and carrying it off. Then the scene faded. )

"I tell you that many of the things that you will be tested with have to do with your freedoms. You have enjoyed many freedoms in this country, but don't take them for granted. I have told you in my word that a time would come when these things would happen. I tell you that that day is fast approaching. So, take stock of the freedoms that you now have. Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord."

1TH 1:4 For we know, brothers loved by God, that he has chosen you, [5] because our gospel came to you not simply with words, but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction.

EPH 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

EPH 3:20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, [21] to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

"I will bless my people by streams of living water. I tell you that the water is always there, but some need to swim in it. Many have just touched the surface of my spirit. Many don't know the power of my spirit. But don't abuse that power. With that power you can move mountains. You can heal the sick. You can deliver those that are possessed. You can set those free who are in bondage. The power is not your own. It is not to become a spectacle. It is not meant to entertain the church. Many have fallen prey to this. I tell you that I will root out those who do these things. Are these things for your glory or mine? I hold these things against you. I do not share my glory with another. Do you think that you can sit at the right hand of the Father? My power is only to be used as I see fit. I bring down leaders and I elevate others. By Me kings rule, and by Me, others fall to the ground. But if you use my power to benefit my people then you will be blessed. By Me the worlds were created. By Me, the breath of life was given to man. By Me the church will be brought to a state of perfection. By Me you will go on to maturity. For it is by my great power "in you" that I will do these things. You are just a part of the tree. You are just a branch. You cannot share in my power unless you are part of the tree. So when my power comes understand how it is to be used. "

JOEL 1:4 What the locust swarm has left the great locusts have eaten; what the great locusts have left the young locusts have eaten; what the young locusts have left other locusts have eaten.

ISA 33:4 Your plunder, O nations, is harvested as by young locusts; like a swarm of locusts men pounce on it.

The Lord showed me a vase that held flowers in it. The flowers were a blue or violet color and they were fresh and beautiful filled with water and sitting on a table. Then gradually, the flowers on the edges began to droop. The petals and stems drooped further and further down as I watched. This process continued for some time and then I began to notice a small insect on the flowers. It was a grasshopper or locust of some type. It traveled upwards on the stems of the flowers and seemed to go through several transformations. It then became a bigger and bigger insect. Finally, at the last I was looking at the inside of one of the flowers. This flower looked very much like a sunflower of some type. As I continued to look at the center of this flower, there was a faint movement within it. Pretty soon the inside of the flower became another scene. The surface area changed and I was looking at a scene of skyscrapers in a large city. The air was filled with swarms of locusts traveling across the sky. The air was dense with them and it was difficult to make out much of anything because of them. Then the scene faded.....

"I tell you that the locusts are coming to some of the major cities and areas of your country. They will devour many of the crops. The stage will be set and then these things will happen. But I tell you that my people will be safe from them. It will no longer be said that your country is filled with rich things. They will come when the stage is set for its final stroke. The times and the seasons are in my hand. People need to know that there is a hope for them in the midst of this life. Those things that have been spoken about will be happening soon. "

1SA 8:6 But when they said, "Give us a king to lead us," this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the LORD. [7] And the LORD told him: "Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. [8] As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. [9] Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do."

1SA 9:1 There was a Benjamite, a man of standing, whose name was Kish son of Abiel, the son of Zeror, the son of Becorath, the son of Aphiah of Benjamin. [2] He had a son named Saul, an impressive young man without equal among the Israelites--a head taller than any of the others.

"I tell you that desperate times are ahead. The time is coming when they think that they will be doing Me a favor by doing away with those who love Me. Many do not know Me and they follow their own devices. Many are following programs within the church and not my Spirit. I tell you that a time of desolation is coming. For this world is racing towards judgment. A time is coming when you will have to search high and low for a good church to attend. You will find pockets of people who will believe like you do. But many will have a skepticism about the days in which we are living. So when times are desperate they search for a new leader. During the time of Samuel they wanted a new king as well. They elected a man after their own designs. But he was torn inside and elevated himself. This new leader will captivate many. He will elevate himself above all others. He will profane what is holy, and he will say "peace, peace," when there is no peace. "

"But do not think that I have left you fatherless. For those who follow after Me I will give them new wine to drink. They will walk in my Spirit and see in my Spirit. Even though the world will be crashing down around them, they will be like a tree planted by the water. They will yield their fruit in season, and they will replenish many because of this. "
