DA 11:36 "The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place.

1TH 5:1 Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, [2] for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. [3] While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

Rev. 13 [16] He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, [17] so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.

"I tell you that things are going to be changing for the world over the next few months and year. For government systems will take on a new change of direction. Osama Bin Ladin will be found out within the next few years. His capture will be good for the minds of many of the American people, but many in his original country will mourn for his capture. I tell you that you cannot root out all evil. You pull out old weeds from a garden and new ones will take their place. Even though these things will happen, liberalism will take on the form of much of the American governmental system. For the political party will be one of acceptance. Liberalism will be the order of the campaign coming this fall. No more will agendas be made as they have been made. I tell you that America will be losing ground with the rest of the world in terms of its ethical impact. For marriages and children will be held in jeopardy because of new laws that will be passed. I tell you that it is a short time before the anti-christ figure comes upon the scene. He will exalt himself above all others. I tell you that when they say "peace and safety" then beware, for that is when the real deception comes."

"Look to the east, for when you see the nations gather together then you will know that they are jockeying for position. Then out of a middle eastern country he will come. He will promise peace to many, but I tell you that peace will be far from his campaign. Do not take the mark that he desires, for with it then he has full control. You don't need to build-up resources for this day, for I will take care of you. I will take care of my people, and I will establish them in all of my ways. My people will be safe in times of trial and in times of distress. So, set you hearts and minds on Me and not on these things. Behold, I will come, and my kingdom will be an everlasting one. The sound of weeping and the cares of the world will be gone. I say these things to prepare you for what lies ahead."

MT 24:32 "Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. [33] Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. [34] I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. [35] Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

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.

"I tell you that the days are moving nigh to my soon return. This world is not your own though, you need to set your sights on what's above. Wars and rumors of war will continue. By this next fall the scene will change. I tell you that a new president is on the horizon. No longer will a Republican agenda fill the walls of the White House. For I tell you that a new regime is coming. Things will not be as they were. New policies will be made. When these things are set in order, then the world will be propelled into the last days. It will be as it has been prophesied in my word. For soon after these things have been set in order, the figure who sets himself up as the "most high," will come upon the scene. Woe to those who follow his policies. "

"I tell you that the sheep will be scattered, but surely, my hand will be outstretched to them. You will be hated by all nations because of Me. But I will feed you and give you drink by living waters. Surely, this generation will not pass away until all these things will be accomplished. "

"Be strong my people, for you will need my strength in the days ahead. "

EZE 17:22 " `This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I myself will take a shoot from the very top of a cedar and plant it; I will break off a tender sprig from its topmost shoots and plant it on a high and lofty mountain. [23] On the mountain heights of Israel I will plant it; it will produce branches and bear fruit and become a splendid cedar. Birds of every kind will nest in it; they will find shelter in the shade of its branches. [24] All the trees of the field will know that I the LORD bring down the tall tree and make the low tree grow tall. I dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish. " `I the LORD have spoken, and I will do it.' "

JN 15:1 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. [2] He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. [3] You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. [4] Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

JN 15:5 "I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. [6] If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. [7] If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. [8] This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

"I would say that a tree grew great and beautiful. It grew and showed great splendor in itself. The time came for it to produce fruit. I would tell you that instead of rich fruit it was rotten. This tree boasted of its greatstature. It said, 'Behold, I have grown to such a great height that I could do almost anything.' This tree could doamazing things. It could perform great miracles. It could raise the dead and heal the sick. This tree had studied about these things and had gone to seminars to learn how to do this. "

"The second tree that stood beside this one was much smaller, but its leaves were very lush and green. This treehad lent its help to many of the younger trees around it. When it had been cold and rainy, it had been a canopy for the other ones. I tell you that when harvest times come, I tell you that the fruit from this tree willbe very ripe. "

The meaning of this is as follows:

"The first tree represents many who have grown tall in their gifting. They have done great signs and wonders, but they have not lent help to others. The second tree has spent most its time showing how it can help thosearound them. I tell you that when the time comes I will judge them accordingly. "

EPH 2:19 Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people and members of God's household, [20] built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. [21] In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. [22] And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.

1CO 3:10 By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds. [11] For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. [12] If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, [13] his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work. [14] If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. [15] If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames.

"I tell you that this world is racing towards judgment. I tell you that a new thing is coming. There is judgment and there is a "lifting-up" of my brethren. What do I mean by a "lifting-up?" I mean that many of you will be set intoplaces of honor. I the Lord, am doing this. I tell you that the foundational ministries will equip my body for whatlies ahead. But you must discern between what is a true prophet and what is a true apostle. Those who speak of just"rosy" things ahead are not sent from Me. Those who uplift their own ministries are not from Me. There is mixtureand there is TRUTH, you need to know the difference. "

(The Lord showed me a scene of the foundation of building that was constructed of rather large smooth rectangularstones. The building quickly was finished and I noticed what looked like the front of a rather old-fashioned stone churchbuilding, complete with steeple and everything. However, very quickly, I noticed that the front facade of the building was being pulled down. EVERYTHING that seemingly made up the church building was made complete by this "false facade."It was now being pulled down by ropes and was lying on the ground. There was nothing left now except for dirt wherethe building was. Now again, the building was to begin with the placement of foundational stones in their proper places.The building was to begin now after these stones had been set, and then everything else could be placed on top of it,and could then arise to complete the building. )

The Lord didn't need to give me an interpretation for this, nor did He need to speak further on the subject. It seems that somehave built churches and ministries and have built a "facade" of pretense and decoration that is not really solid or built how it should be. I believe that they will be pulled down because they are not part of the original structure of the church. What does that mean in essence? It means that they are not built upon the "true foundational structure" of prophets and apostles with Christ Jesus being the Chief Cornerstone. I believe that this goes even deeper than that as well. Some have built these "false fronts" as a means of being showy and bringing attention to the building or church. They have exalted themselves and their ministries and churches. They don't realize that very quickly the entire structure could collapse.

In closing, I pray that our churches and ministries will be built properly on the proper foundations. I pray that there won't be false pretenses or facades, and that the entire structures will be knitted and built together on the foundational truths of God's word, and then rise to a completed church that has been erected properly.

AM 3:7 Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.

"From the depths of my Spirit I am sending forth my messages in this hour. From time immortal I have dwelt andhave wanted to have a relationship with mankind. My messages have gone out in the earth in this hour. They have come forth from my throne room. I tell you that my words will take on a different intensity because the hour isgetting later. My messages will speak more of specific times and places. For I tell you the enemy is planning hisschemes, but he will not prevail. For I am equipping my prophets to know his schemes. But even as important as that,my people need to be warned about specific things that are soon to come. So what is it that I want you to know? Iwant you to know of a deep and ever-lasting love that I have for you. I want you to know that you can triumpth overthe enemy in every situation. And specifically I want you to know about certain events. It will come at a certain time that you America, will be at war. That war will be greater than any war that you have been in so far. You will have theenemy enter your borders. I tell you that this war will be with China. I ask you to enter into prayer about these things.Judgment will come and it will come swlftly at that time. These things will be happening after you have a new man inoffice. After this time that figure of the anti-christ will be taking his place among the world powers. I don't say these things to frighten or alarm but that you would be made ready. "

JN 4:21 Jesus declared, "Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. [22] You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. [23] Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. [24] God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth."

After spending some time in prayer this morning, the Lord showed me a few things abcout the conditon of the church. He began by showing me a short series of visions. In it I saw a woman who was dancing as if at a ball. She was dressed in a glittering dress and was spinning around and around. She was by herself but I noticed that the scenery was as if she were in a ballroom somewhere. Shw was then carried away into the air and she kept spinning and enjoying herself as if she were at a party. The Lord then said:

"This is the condtion of many who are in my church. They think that their life should be lived as if they were at a party. "

The scene continued from before and I saw a dancer who was dancing like a Spainish dancer would to the beat. She continued in this fashion for a while and then she seemed to fall through a chasm of some type. Then I saw various acrobats performing on stage. They would be standing on top of each other doing various feats very much like what might happend at a three-ring circus. The Lord said again:

"This is the condition of the church. For too long these things have dominated my body of believers. I will take away these things for they distract you and keep you from worshiping Me in spirit and in the truth. Take away the party and you may not have fun, but you will then know what "true church" is meant to be. This is the state of affairs of my body in this hour. "

1PE 4:12 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. [13] But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. [14] If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. [15] If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. [16] However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. [17] For it is time for judgment to begin with the family of God; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?

1TH 5:1 Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, [2] for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. [3] While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

"This year will be quite a year for believers, for they will be tested beyond what they may think that they can endure. For there will be testings in the world that will go beyond what you normally would see. For smoke and rain, fire and ice, are but a taste of those things. There will be signs in the heavens and signs in the earth below. There will be signs in the political arena. You think that things are going to go as expected, but I tell you that a new frontier is on the horizon. For it is not the frontier as you might expect. Much will happen in politics over this next year. You havehad your taste of this administration, but a new liberal agenda is arising. No more will war be something that ispursued, but a brief time of peace will usher in a "false hope." And in a short time this "false peace" will usher in a worldleader. Remember that I told you that these things are coming. Many think that the church will not go through times like these. They think that wonderful programs and seminars would somehow keep my prophetic time table from happening. I tell you that these things are decreed. I tell you that many false words and prophecies are going out around the world. Many speak of great world churches and revivals. Surely, many will be saved. Surely, the church willgo on and will be strengthened. But I tell you, that not without much suffering. Do you think that you are exempt frommy suffering? Do you think that life as a Christian does not have its rewards? Truly, there are rewards, and one of theserewards is that you will walk as I have walked. What is preached in your churches about these things? What is said concerning these things that lie ahead? Are you prepared or are you walking as blind men? Are your eyes on Me or are they on your leaders? I tell you that many will fall in this hour, but many also, will come into a deeper relationship with Me. "
