DA 5:27 Tekel: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.

JER 22:21 I warned you when you felt secure, but you said, `I will not listen!'This has been your way from your youth;you have not obeyed me.

"Tell them that time is running out. Time is running out for those who would want to come to know Me.These things are said because there are dark days ahead. The world is on the brink of new things that arecoming.

The Lord showed me a scene of a Middle Eastern man who was standing on top of a high place. He had a gunand shot it into the air. Then in his hands he held a net. Below him were a group of people, seemingly ofCaucasian descent. He then took the net and tossed it forward and it encircled all of these people and theywere captured. Out of the midst of this scene, a long scroll came and on this scroll was written:

"A decree is ordered that America is held in the balance."

"In not a long period of time a captivity will occur. Your national security will be breached. At that time the world will be propelled into the things that written in my word. Then the prophetic time table will be laid out and will occur. I told Jeremiah of a captivity that would come and they did not listen to him. Will you listen, and will you be ready when these things happen? "

The word below was given to me starting July 6 and was finished on July 12. The Lord began speaking to me while near the area where we will be moving to. This is not the first time that some of these things have come forth concerning an invasion or war that would break out within America's borders. These areserious things to consider and I believe that we need to take them before His throne, so that we might beprepared for the days that follow. The time frame is uncertain; it is in His timing. However, it is clear that those who place their trust in Him will be found in "safe habitations."

NA 3:14 Draw water for the siege,strengthen your defenses!Work the clay, tread the mortar, repair the brickwork!

ISA 54:16 "See, it is I who created the blacksmith who fans the coals into flame and forges a weapon fit for its work. And it is I who have created the destroyer to work havoc;

"The land that you are in is a land that has been forsaken by some, but I tell you that it is received by Me. For I tell you truly, this land will be protected from the siege that comes upon the United States. The winds will blow and will bring havoc upon much of the land. Many will seek other forms ofsecurity in that day. There is no protection that will save them other than myself. Some will seekto run to other lands. Some will seek political and military strength; but I tell you, an invasionis coming. Have I not warned, and have I not mentioned these things before to you? Yet many stillchoose to disbelieve. "

"Shelter can be found in Me, so seek that shelter. For these things will come and who will you runto? I tell you there are many things forthcoming that many think will never come--but these thingsare written down in my word. With the dawn of a new year the pendulum will begin moving. America cannot withstand the onslaught from within, nor can it from the outside."

"You ask, 'Can these things be prevented?' I ask you, "Can you stop the full speed of a freight trainas it moves down the tracks?" Your sin has reached its capacity. Yet many choose to ignore thesethings."

"The land will be scorched and it will be changed forever. Your borders have been protected in the pastbut a time is coming when the walls will come down. "

MT 11:28 "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. [29] Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. [30] For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

MK 6:30 The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught. [31] Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, "Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest."

MT 18:2 He called a little child and had him stand among them. [3] And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. [4] Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

(All throughout my time with the Lord as this message was coming forth, I first saw a room wherethere were tools and various craftsmanship-like devices and pieces of carpentry. My sense was thatthis was a room where many of us have our various gifts and skills. God was wanting myself and others, to lay these things down, and yet I also sensed that He was in the process of refining andperfecting these giftings and skills because He is also the Great Carpenter and Creator. After this scene, as I was worshiping, the Lord brought me to a door that opened up into a beautifulvista that looked out onto a waterfall and lush trees and forest. This is the place where He wantsto bring us to give us times of refreshing in Him. Then I saw a little child who was climbingthe edge of a stone wall. On this wall were many things of His kingdom. There were books ofdifferent types and all kinds of beautiful things that one might find a vast library.)

"Out of my fullness, I am giving a new resting place in Me. I am giving a rest that is seeing beyond the days of tomorrow. I am giving a rest that the mind can not know, but only the spirit can understand it.Drop your weapons of warfare and lay them at my feet. Do not toil in your own strength and do notgo about doing your own business. Let me handle many of the affairs that you do not understand. Lay down your skills and gifts before Me. It is time to go away to the lonely mountain and find yourrest there. Leave the cares of this world behind you. Leave behind your bow and arrow and all yourweaponry. Find strength along the mountain path that you take beside the mountain stream. You must not take anything with you---only yourself. Open the door to my spirit and partake of myfullness there. Breathe in the air and the smoke that is around you. Be as a little child that wouldexplore the secret chambers of my spirit. I want all of my children to be as a little child in Me. I want them to be playful, and creative, and learning new things every day. Too many of them havebecome dusty and boring. These times of resting are essential. For strength is needed for the daysahead. Find rest in Me, in the midst of the world around you."

[18] And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. Col. 1

1CO 12:14 Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. [15] If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. [16] And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. [17] If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? [18] But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. [19] If they were all one part, where would the body be? [20] As it is, there are many parts, but one body.

"There are many ministries around that think that they know Me and that they serve Me, but I tell youthat they are building their own kingdom. They have put so much emphasis upon the eye or the foot,or the hand, that they have neglected the head. Can a body function without its head? There would beno hand or foot or eye, if this were so. I tell that some will step down in this hour because of these things."

(The Lord showed me a picture of a man who was upon a horse. However, he was very much like the "headlesshorseman" that you read about in classic literature. Then in the midst of this, coming down from the sky was abeautiful golden crown and a gold sword that shimmered as it approached me. As I watched this, they slowlycame and were laid upon the ground.)

The Lord then said:

"I gave up these things so that I might be joined with the Father. I forsaked an earthly kingdom for a heavenly one. Then my kingdom became one which is everlasting. My spirit is being poured out more and more; but I will nottolerate parts of my body elevating themselves above my head as they have. Be joined to my head so that you will function as you should. "

ISA 5:5 Now I will tell you what I am going to do to my vineyard:I will take away its hedge,and it will be destroyed; I will break down its wall, and it will be trampled.

(I asked the Lord to tell me more about the coastline regions and the dangers that they might facein the near future. This is what He told me. I sought more answers and information based upon the word that He had given to me on Jun 17, 2004. I do not relish sending forth messages like this, butI believe that I am to be obedient to warn you. )

"The coastlines are far from Me and my desires. All who live in large metropolitan cities willbe targeted soon. Remain in Me and I will remain in you. The branch cannot survive unless it isrooted into the tree. Many of you are far from Me. Because of your great sins and wayward ways,these things are coming. If I speak to you concerning your safety, then you should move. "

(The Lord showed me a picture of the state of California. I looked at it as if it were a 3-D layer ofground with its boundaries. I saw it waver from side to side and rock back and forth. I then saw ocean waves begin to spill over onto it as it rocked back and forth. It sank and then seemed to comeback up again.)

(I then saw bomber planes drop bombs below onto the ground. Concentric circles, or waves, came forth then from this action below. I saw what looked like an arm or hand coming out of the water.Someone or others, were attempting to rescue or grab this arm out of the water. Eventually it cameout and what I saw was the Statue of Liberty. It had evidently been hit and now people were attempting to help erect it again.)

"I tell you that many of the freedoms that America once had, will be lost. You were once a land of liberty and promise, but I tell you that you are far from Me. You think that you will always be safe and that the wall of protection is round about you. You are wrong. Are you safe from danger when you are far from Me? Have you gone to your prayer chambers and prayed about these things? I tell you that I have warned, and warned, and warned you. A foreign power will enter into your borders; and yet, I will protect my people, says the Lord. "

(This vision/word finished with one more scene. I saw the land of America from the air, and it had a net of some sort that had been placed on top of it. Now, I saw a great hand reach down and take this net that once had been secured on top of America and was now, taking it off. It had been pinned down in all directions, and had been safely fastened to the ground around it. I watched this great hand take the entire net and ropes that held it into place, and toss it away. I sensed that now the hedge of protection that had for many years, been safe upon our nation, was now being removed. )

MT 24:4 Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you. [5] For many will come in my name, claiming, `I am the Christ, ' and will deceive many. [6] You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. [7] Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. [8] All these are the beginning of birth pains.

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.

"The end of all things is coming and will soon be at hand. Not many more seasons will pass, and then the end will come. I tell you that many deceptions lie in the near future. The rumors that you have heard about the attacks upon America will suddenly materialize. Those who are near the coastlines, beware and take cover; for larger metropolitan areas are targeted. Be forewarned, and be alert! The military will take action and many lives will be lost. These things have been predicted by others, and yet many still bury their heads in the sand. "

"But swiftly I come on the wings of the wind. Many persecutions are ahead for my people. For you will be handed over to the courts but I will plead your case for you. Beware of false prophets promising you many things. There will come many claiming to be a new spiritual leader. I tell you that surely you will know them by their fruits. Those who are near Me and hear my voice, will be a light in a dark place. Many congregations will fall and will split over petty differences. You will hear of a brighter tomorrow forecast by some. Use your discernment to know which is true. For the mature, I ask you to eat strong meat. If you want words of comfort and sugar-coated messages, then go to a psyhic. I tell you that my truth is embodied in my spirit. Those who eat of its fruit will live. Surely, in spite of all of this, I will be hedge of protection for my people. "

MAL 4:5 "See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes. [6] He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse."

1CO 4:14 I am not writing this to shame you, but to warn you, as my dear children. [15] 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. [16] Therefore I urge you to imitate me. [17] For this reason I am sending to you Timothy, my son whom I love, who is faithful in the Lord. He will remind you of my way of life in Christ Jesus, which agrees with what I teach everywhere in every church.

1JN 2:13 I write to you, fathers, because you have known him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men,because you have overcome the evil one. I write to you, dear children, because you have known the Father.

"Without a good father, a son cannot come unto maturity. Without a strong male influence, a nation is without a leader. There are men who claim to be leaders but are not. There are many children who are left without a father. There are many young women who have never known the hand of a good father. Can a nation survice without the hands of the fathers? Can young men know true leadership without them? A curse is coming unless this land can bring the hearts back to the fathers. For there is an emptiness in the land. Many sons have gone astray because of this. But I tell you, there are many young men in the faith who need fathers in their lives. Those who are more mature in the faith need to guide them. We need apostolic fathers. We need prophetic fathers. We need those who can nurture and can guide. Can the young in the faith survice without them? We don't need those who lord over other things. Children need boundaries and limits, but a body that is controlled by a single leader is doomed to failure. Those who have known Me, be a strong influence in the lives of others. Be the father to them that they need. Then my body can come unto maturity. "

ISA 35:6 Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy. Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert.

ISA 43:19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.

ISA 43:20 The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the desertand streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen,

ISA 32:2 Each man will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desertand the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land.

"There will be streams in the desert; you will find streams there. Out of the dry land will come streams that will give you water. Out of the dry land will come forth my spirit. My spirit will feed and nourish my people. But I tell you, a time is coming when the desert will become a safe haven. For the world will be at war. Those that find rest will run to the desert. It will be a source of protection from the enemy. I will be theirsource, and I will be their protection, says the Lord. My people will be brought to safety in times of need.In all my holy mountain, I will look down upon my people. In the near future, you will understand theimpact of this more. I will be a wall of protection to my people. "

(This message below concerns a coming siege for our land. Understand that while these passages belowdeal with a future war that is to break-out and culminate with the land of Israel, I believe these versesalso can apply to our land as well. There are difficult days ahead for us, but God will be a place ofrefuge for those who put their trust in Him. Let us not be swayed by soothing and pleasing words thatpretend to speak of other things that are come. Rather, let us judge these things and find ourselves prepared and ready. )

EZE 38:1 The word of the LORD came to me: [2] "Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; prophesy against him [3] and say: `This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. [4] I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army--your horses, your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. [5] Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, [6] also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops--the many nations with you.

" `Get ready; be prepared, you and all the hordes gathered about you, and take command of them. [8] After many days you will be called to arms. In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate. They had been brought out from the nations, and now all of them live in safety. [9] You and all your troops and the many nations with you will go up, advancing like a storm; you will be like a cloud covering the land.

[20] They were trampled in the winepress outside the city, and blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses' bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia. Rev. 14. 20

"I tell you that a coming storm is coming. On the swift wings of the wind it will come.But I tell you that I have provide places of refuge for my people. A devastation is coming that will spread across the land. I tell you that your land will be trampled upon by foreigners. For the walls of protection will not prevent these things from coming. But as I have said,I will be a refuge for my people. These times will come to fruition suddenly. You whoprophesy great things for America and this land, are wrong. You who prophesy greatwealth that is to come, are wrong. Surely, I am a God of the future and I care for everyoneof you, but my book must be laid open."

"Great hordes and armies are coming. They come from the east and they make plans for war. An ancient land they come from. I tell you that China will join forces with Russia. When yourgaze is upon other things then it will suddenly come into action. I tell you that these things arespoken of in my word. They are clearly outlined in the book of Ezkiel. I always leave a resourcefor my people to prepare for."

(The Lord showed me horses with riders upon them. My gaze was upon the horses' heads because a liquid began to fill-up in the midst around these horses and riders. They were in themidst of a great battle of some kind. I began to realize that it was blood that was rising to thenostrils and heads of the horses, because the battle had become very fierce.)

LK 21:25 "There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. [26] Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. [27] At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. [28] When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near."

2TI 3:1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. [2] People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, [3] without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, [4] treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God-- [5] having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.

"Out of the west will come a wind that will blow. This wind will stir up many things. I tell you that therewill be atmospheric things seen in the skies. For this earth is going to be going through birth pangs. What are those birth pangs? I tell you that they are signs of my returning Son. "

These are the signs that you would observe:

1. Drought in some areas of the United States.

2. More fires reaping havoc.

3. Tornadoes and high winds

4. Lightning storms

5. Buildings collapsing

6. An earthquake of great magnitude

7. Tidal waves upon the coastlines

"I tell you that the signs in the natural come first; then the spiritual comes afterwards. There will bean "unsettling" of many people. For many will look to other beliefs at this time. The ancient practicesof other religions will become prevalent. For they think that they will have found their answers there.These are the signs that will follow. Lean unto the rock of your salvation. Deep dig and you will findyour resources in Me. "

[8] For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-- [9] not by works, so that no one can boast. [10] 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

RO 6:1 What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? [2] By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? [3] Or don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? [4] We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

"I have come to give my people a message of hope. I have come to tell them that all their long years ofservice have given them their "full rights to the kingdom of God." Service is something that I have askedyou to do, but it is not a "saving thing." Have I not said in my word that "you are saved by grace?" No matter what you do, you are not a better person for Me. You cannot make your way more certain,and you cannot make me love you more by doing things. It is only through the work of my spirit. It isonly through my grace that you are able to do these things. All the great things that you have done will not make you better in my eyes. It is GRACE, it is simply my GRACE. And yet, some have abused mygrace. Some have continued sinning, knowing that I would forgive them. They have willfully sinned,knowing that it is provided for them. This is an abuse of my grace. You are forgiven, but do not be willfullabout your continued sinning. These are things that you should learn, and these are things that areimportant. So, there are two sides to my grace. You are forgiven, and it is only through my grace that youcan do the things that you have done for Me. It is my strength, and not your own. When you know thesethings and you do them, then you will be blessed. "

[13] May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones.

EPH 3:14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, [15] from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. [16] I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, [17] so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love

"This is the new era for my believers. It is a time of faith-building and renewal. It is a time to gather all of your faithand hope in Me. You may wonder why it is time for such things as this. I tell you it is because of the darkness thatfalls very soon. You need to gather these things unto yourselves in preparation for those days that lie ahead. For tragedies and disasters are coming. There will be tragedies in the natural and there will be tragedies inthe spiritual. I tell you that earthquakes are set in motion for the western states. And these "rumblings" will signal the rumblings that are yet to come. "

(The Lord showed me an ariel view of the state of California. I saw the state clearly marked out. Above it I sawan angel who was blowing a trumpet. Right after this I was not permitted to see any more for a curtain was beingpulled back in front of me preventing me to see anymore. Then as I continued praying, I noticed some thingsthat were rising from the California area. They looked very much like bubbles. There were small ones andlarger ones that rose into the air and some were drifting across the country into the east. I asked the Lord what these were and He said, "These are the prayers of my people that are rising to Me." )

"The days ahead will be difficult days; that is why I want you to form your faith. Faith builds upon itself. Faith isalso contagious. Strengthen one another and encourage one another in Me. For the strength of your faithwill carry you through. "

ISA 12:3 With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.

ISA 49:10 They will neither hunger nor thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat upon them.He who has compassion on them willguide them and lead them beside springs of water.

"Continue my people, in the faith that I have given unto you. Know that you are vessels to display my workunto the world. What is hidden will be disclosed. The time is running close to my soon return. "

The Lord showed me a tree that was ready to shed its leaves. I watched as several leaves fell to the ground.My attention was drawn to each one as they fluttered in mid-air. The first fell in front of me and then turned into a piece of parchment that was crumpled-up like a leaf. On it was written, "Be ready." I keptlooking at the leaves as they fell from the tree. A second leaf fell in the same manner towards me and ithad the message, "Persevere" written on it. Several other leaves fell to the ground from the tree, but thesewere the only ones that held a message. Then as I watched one fell and continued to fall, but did not fall to the ground. There was a cliff and on its edge it went into a chasm. One of the leaves continued to fall into this area. I saw what looked like a long scroll come forth from this single leaf and then the leaf/scrollchanged its form. It now became a bucket that held water. Water was being poured into it from above.The bucket and water was then being raised and was filling other buckets. Finally, the bucket of water wastiled to spill its water onto the ground. The ground was parched and cracked like a desert.

"These leaves represent what you are to do to prepare yourselves for my soon return. I tell you that you areto draw water out from the springs of my Spirit; and then it will be poured into the dry places that need it. "

HOS 4:6 my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.

AM 8:11 "The days are coming," declares the Sovereign LORD,"when I will send a famine through the land--not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD.

AM 8:12 Men will stagger from sea to sea and wander from north to east,searching for the word of the LORD,but they will not find it.

"Many of my people are on the brink of starvation. They are on the brink of being starved of my word.There is a drought in the land and it is a drought of my word. Many go here and go there for a word fromthe Lord. Many seek out a prophet that they might get a word from the Lord, but I tell you, the word isnear you, it is even in your heart. Why seek after these things when I am in you? Why go to this conference and that one when I have given you all things? I tell you that my people lack of knowledge. They seek after the spectacular. I tell you that this attitude is no different than the world's "

"Will I do the miraculous? Will I do the spectacular? I tell you that I will, but it is only when you seek afterMe first. Seek after Me first and I will surely give you all things. Then will come the spectacular, but it onlybecause you know Me. "

PR 4:11 I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths.

PHP 1:3 I thank my God every time I remember you. [4] In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy [5] because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, [6] being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

"I am here to hear the prayers of my people. I am giving you the keys to the kingdom. What you thoughtwas unattainable is now within your reach. What was once over the horizon is now just over the hill. I tell you that indeed, many of you will have your dreams fulfilled. Those things that have seemed to beburied for years will now be resurrected. It has been a long Winter. The road has been weary and overrunwith debris. But I say to you, that I will make a clear pathway for you. When trials come your way know that I am with you there in the midst of them. I am here to tell you those things that I hold in the futurefor you. I am here holding a candle that will light the way for you. Brush off the sins and distractions ofthe world around you. "

(The Lord handed me a newspaper that then turned into a scroll. He handed me the scroll, and it thenopened up in front of me with several words written on it. Then He said: )

"Tell these people that I am here to fulfill their destiny within them. Each of you has a plan that I willfulfill and bring to completion. Take the words thzt I speak to you and unfurl them into your dreamsfulfilled. "

EZE 40:5 I saw a wall completely surrounding the temple area. The length of the measuring rod in the man's hand was six long cubits, each of which was a cubit and a handbreadth. He measured the wall; it was one measuring rod thick and one rod high.

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

"I am going to raise up a new breed of minister in this hour. I am bringing my prophets to a new level of understanding. I am showing them more and more things about future events. What is it that I would speak about or share with you? I would speak of governments and policies. I would speak of the delusions that have blinded many people in this hour. I would speak of the sins that have risen to a high degree of immorality. I would speak of wars and rumors of wars. I would speak of churches that have left the spirit out of their assemblies. "

"I tell you that a new breed of message is coming forth. No longer will it be bathed in mediocrity. "

(The Lord showed me a man who held a stick in his hand. It was cut and shaped like a piece of wood that has been used in a building. He then took it and broke it in half. He then lifted this piece of wood and began to align it on top of a section of wall. The stick was not to be used, because it would not "fit" the shape of the wall. He then was given a new piece of wood which was a measuring rod. This was then being used to measure the sides of building that he was inspecting.)

"I am giving you a measuring rod to determine the correctness of the building.. With it you will determine where those in the building have gone astray. No one is to measure themselves with one another, but only from Me. "

"Guard the buildings, and I will reveal more to you, my prophets."

RO 8:18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. [19] The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. [20] For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope [21] that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.

"I tell you that this earth has just a few more years left for it. I tell you that my body will be protected in the days ahead. Thereare signs that will follow; this earth will go through many changes as well. The earth has been groaning for the sons of glory to be revealed. I have said that one would come who would set himself up to be like Me. Those days are quickly approaching. He will exalt himself above everything. Now, prepare yourselves for those days that are coming. Be as many of my animals are in nature; they prepare food during Summer for those long days of Winter. But it is not food that you will need during those days, but courage and strength. So, be this way and prepare yourselves for those days."

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.

2SA 7:5 "Go and tell my servant David, `This is what the LORD says: Are you the one to build me a house to dwell in? [6] I have not dwelt in a house from the day I brought the Israelites up out of Egypt to this day. I have been moving from place to place with a tent as my dwelling. [7] Wherever I have moved with all the Israelites, did I ever say to any of their rulers whom I commanded to shepherd my people Israel, "Why have you not built me a house of cedar?" '

"A new day is coming. A new day is coming for many of my people. No more will my people be lacking. I tell you that the enemyof your souls will not triumph over you. From the rising of the sun to its setting down, I will watch over you. I tell you that difficult days are ahead but I will watch over you. Beware of what the world will promise you. Know that I will see you through thetrials and temptations of this life. The waters will not overtake you and the flames will not touch you. I tell you that divine protection is found under my wings. Nothing will harm or hurt my people if they are found under my wings. "

"I tell you these things because you are entering into a new era and time. For the church, as a whole, will be going through a lot ofchanges. What are those changes? "

(The Lord showed me a vision of a small church. I was looking at it from above without a ceiling or roof on it. The walls were made of dirt and people were beginning to leave. Many of them were climbing up on ladders on the sides of the building, where the dirt walls were. They then climbed up and walked away. I noticed several pieces of rubble and rock where once a building was. There were pews and other accessories that one might find in a church today, except that the building itself was set into a dirt enclosure. The scene changed and now I saw jewels and riches being spilt upon the ground. As I watched, a man was taking something and was dispersing or scattering it upon the ground from side to side as he walked. This continued for some time, and then the vision faded.)

"I tell you that many within the body of Christ will pursue after riches in this hour. Those who pursue after the things of this world will be consumed by it. A new type of church will emerge out of the ground. It will be a place where I have "hollowed" it out. You will need to be in "protection" in these days, for no more will governments and agencies be a protection for you. Seek the building of my spirit. "
