32 men of Issachar, who understood the times and knew what Israel should do—200 chiefs, with all their relatives under their command; 1 Chronicles 12:31-33

"I tell you that this is the beginning of the end. When have the winds blown as they have during the last ten years? When have governments toppled and rose again to take another form as they have before? When have families been torn apart as they have? When have wars and rumors of wars occurred? I tell you that the floods have come and the winds have blown. The earth has shook, and it will continue to shake until I return. Will there be a rebuilding of these things? I tell you that everything that can be rebuilt will be temporary. "

"After the onslaught of those days, I will come to rebuild my kingdom. Never again will the earth go through the turmoil that it is going through now again. The enemy will come to power, but he will be defeated. He will arise from the east, and he will persuade many with his smooth words. Woe to those who follow after him."

"But I will bring my people to places of safety. I will snatch them out of the hand of the enemy. I am gathering a great harvest until the end, and I am in the process of bringing that process to an end. For the end of days is at hand. Who is there who has been able to discern the times and seasons? Who is there who would stand upon the walls and warn the people? Behold, I am coming soon. Be warned and be ready for those things that are coming."

(The Lord spoke this to me today because there seems to be a problem in this area of properly judging prophetic words. To be sure, there is a great need for “true discernment” during this time. However, we need to not only use the scriptures when we’re doing this properly, but we also need to listen to His voice when discerning. We need to step into that chamber of His spirit so that we can judge rightly.)

My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. "Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children. Hosea 4:6

Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God, Hebrews 6:1

  22 Let a cry be heard from their houses when you suddenly bring invaders against them, for they have dug a pit to capture me and have hidden snares for my feet. Jeremiah 18:22

“My people suffer for lack of knowledge. My people suffer because they look to the ways of tradition. Very few know how to judge rightly. Very few received the words of Jeremiah when he was alive. Even those who think that they know how to judge are judging according to their own devices. Was Jeremiah received or was he thrown into a pit? There are many in this hour who speak words of edification and comfort, and that is well and good. But who is there among you who would judge those words that go beyond these parameters? It is well and good to judge according to my word, but when judging prophetic words that go beyond these, you must enter into that secret chamber with Me. You must listen to my still small voice. Many of you are like the Pharisees when you judge these things. For you follow the letter of the law; and then you say that if you cannot find this prophetic word in my scriptures then they are false. I tell you that you are judging by appearances. Am I saying that there is no need for discernment in this hour? I tell you that there is a great need. But when you are discerning these things you must step into communion with Me. Very few do this. You have your pet teachers and your pet prophets. You have your favorite books that you read. When the time comes, and it will, I will say that I never knew you. Would you go onto maturity or would you stay in your childish ways? “

15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. 16 Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Gen. 9:15-17

1 "Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness and who seek the LORD : Look to the rock from which you were cut and to the quarry from which you were hewn; 2 look to Abraham, your father, and to Sarah, who gave you birth. When I called him he was but one, and I blessed him and made him many.

“I tell you that this world will begin the trials that are set for it. My word will last forever. There is nothing that can destroy or abolish it. From everlasting to everlasting, my word has been set in the hearts of men and women. When the mountains crumble and fall into the sea my word will remain strong. I have set my bow in the heavens as a reminder that I will never destroy earth again with a flood. However, there are coming judgments upon the earth. Those coming judgments are set in my word. The earth will need to be cleansed, and then new heavens and a new earth will emerge.”

“Set your hearts upon those things that are above and not those things that are upon the earth. In the midst of these great trials that are coming, my sons and daughters will grow unto maturity. I tell you that they will weather the storms. They will be fed and sustained by the rivers of my spirit. Dig deep within that reservoir, my people, and then you will be sustained. Look unto the rock from which you were hewn. Look at those who have gone before you. Consider the champions of the faith. Look at the entire arena that has gone before you. And then when the devastation comes you will know that you have not been alone. “

43But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. Matt. 24:43-45

He said: "The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; 3 my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn [a] of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior- from violent men you save me. 4 I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies. 2 Samuel 22:2-4

"I tell you that the time is quickly approaching when cities of refuge will be set aside for my people. For there will be a time of devastation that hits upon the United States. The cycle of the seasons will show this. For spring will give rise to summer, and summer will give rise to fall. I tell that great hordes are coming. An army of immense proportions will come upon your shores. Submarines and fleets will come to your coast. It will be at a time when your eyes are looking elsewhere. I tell you that the safety net has been lifted from your United States. No longer are you called the land of the free and the home of the brave; and yet I will reach out to those who are in need of Me. The great purging has begun, and the time of the great cleansing is coming. And yet, I will raise my sons and daughters up in this hour. Great manifestations of my spirit will happen. The lame will walk and the blind will see. Who is ready for the se days? Will you be ready and will you have your lamps trimmed and ready?"

But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes the life of one of them, that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood.' Ezekiel 33:6

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. Isaiah 30:10

"Be aware that I am a God who looks out for the needy and for those who have nothing. I have stockpiles of food and supplies for those who have need of them. In times of crisis I am there to swiftly come to the aid. But I tell you that there are even greater crisis’s and events that are coming upon the horizon. For I have told some that Russia and China will invade this United States. Will you be ready for the onslaught? Will there be a preparedness in your government for this action? I tell you that there will be places of refuge set aside for that time. Woe to those prophets and apostles who speak of brighter days ahead. Woe to those who say that all will be well. For many of them are well-known among you. They have buried their heads in the sand. But to those who speak my truth, you will warn the people and some will take heed. "

10And do not grumble, as some of them did—and were killed by the destroying angel. 11These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come. 12So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall! I Co. 10:10-12

"I tell you that this is the season for preparation, and it is also the season for devastation. The signs have started that point to my return. These will be days that some will prepare and some will scoff at. Many will say that these things have always happened. But it is clear to those who have ears to hear that I am coming soon. Will these things be eased up on, some will ask? I tell you that my prophetic time clock is ticking, these things are written down and they will happen. The safety net has been taken away from the United States. There are things that will come that may not have come before. Some gather to pray about the things that are coming, and surely, I will listen to them, but I must tell you that these things are ordained. They are meant to happen because they are the events that are leading up to my soon return. "

Sun and moon stood still in the heavens at the glint of your flying arrows, at the lightning of your flashing spear. Habakkuk 3:11

He shot his arrows and scattered the enemies , great bolts of lightning and routed them. Psalm 18:14

"You are known by your fruits and your fruits make it known who you are unto Me. What kinds of fruits are you yielding in this hour, my people? Many people can give forth words of comfort unto the body of Christ. Some can edify, and some can exhort. These are the limitations of the "gift of prophecy." I tell you that many have confused what a prophet is with the "gift of prophecy." A prophet is to take on the character of myself. It is not just the word that is a ministry unto the people, but it is the life that they give back unto Me. But I tell you that the parameters are different with what the prophet speaks. Some will illuminate my word. Some will give forth my words of warning unto a nation. Some will unveil the secrets that are hidden. Some will look over distant hills and trees. They will look into the enemy's camp. Many will train the younger eglets how to fly. " <br.
(The Lord showed me a vision of a dark and cloudy sky above. I noticed that a cannon at first was shooting its cannon balls into the atmosphere above. Then I noted that several people were shooting arrows into the dark clouds overhead. Every time that an arrow was shot by these people, the dark clouds would then open-up an area of clear sky on the other side. More and more archers were shooting their arrows into the sky and with each arrow that was shot, more and more clear sky was being opened up. I believe that the significance of this vision is that when God's prophets speak forth the true words of God, that an opening is seen then in the heavenlies above, and where the enemy had had darkness and heaviness, there is now being seen light and freedom. )

"It is time my prophets, to let your arrows fly into the atmosphere above. Let the dark clouds be dispelled. Let the arrows fly up unto my throne, and back unto the earth below. Let them open up a channel unto Myself."

36like men waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him. 37It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes. I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them. 38It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night. Luke 12:36-38

"I tell you that the time has come for my people to prepare for the days that are to come. You have seen the devastation that has come to the people of the south. You have seen the tsunami that hit the people of Malaysia and other areas as well. But I say that you will see other things like this come in the coming months. I say, to watch California. Watch and wait. You have heard some say that the big one is coming. I tell you that a big one is coming. A time will come when the entire state of California will be cut off from the rest of the United States. Beware and get ready. You have seen the plates move but they will move further than they have ever moved! You will see the signs of these things intensify."

"Woe to those who extort funds and take advantage of the needy. For the money that you take from them will be taken from you. The state of the economy will fall. The balancing scale will be tipped. The treasury will fail. Who will you run to in those days? Is there a disaster plan set in place? I tell you that I am the only one that will save you. "

8All these are the beginning of birth pains. Matt. 24

3First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. 4They will say, "Where is this 'coming' he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation."2 Peter 3

(The devastation that has hit the coastline of New Orleans and Mississippi, has been devastating and beyond belief to many of us. I know that all of this is still fresh in our hearts and minds. It is a time of unbelievable suffering and loss through all of this. In some ways, I almost hesitate to send out messages like this, but I must be obedient. I believe that more is yet to come. We pray for the many who have been through this, but at the same time, we must prepare for what lies ahead. Many have asked, “How should I prepare?” Seek the Lord and get your house in order, and He will let you know what you should be doing.)

“I tell you that Katrina is one of many other disasters that will hit the United States. The devastation that has hit this area has cost many lives and has caused the loss of much property, but I tell you that even greater damage will come. For my judgments have begun. You will see people without food and water in even more increasing numbers. “

(The Lord showed me a scene of two large figures who held a huge net in their hands. It had been draped over a huge 3-D map of the United States. Then I saw each of them carefully roll the net up and take it off of the surface of the entire area of the United States.)

“Woe to those who say that their sin is far from Me. Woe to those who say that these days are not pointing to my soon return. I tell you that warning after warning has been given. I am not a God that gets pleasure out of the destruction of many. But when the sins of many have reached the magnitude that they have, then there are consequences that will follow. “

“I tell you people, care for those who are in need. Reach out to the many who have been without shelter during this time. But be ye prepared for the coming trials that are coming upon this earth.”

For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12:40

16 There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: 17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue,hands that shed innocent blood, 18 a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, 18 a heart that devises wicked schemes,feet that are quick to rush into evil, 19 a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers. Proverbs 6:18-20

But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless. Titus 3:9

"Be about my business, my people, for the days are short. Watch out for the dogs, those who would attempt to rip apart my word. You will know them by their fruit. Their tree is full of unhealthy things. They pretend to know my word but it is far from them. These are those who want to debate and argue all day long. They have their own groups and places where they meet together. I tell you that I am against them. My people, I have said in my word that it is good not to get into controversial matters, and some love to 'stir-up things.'"

"I have said before that a great civil war is coming. I tell you that it has begun. But it is not the north against the south. It involves those who are truly speaking for Me against those who are wayward. I tell you that there are some who say that they know my word; they speak it from the rooftops. But I tell you that there is a famine in the land, a famine for hearing the true word of the Lord. Many seek after signs and wonders, but I tell you that the only sign that will be given unto them is the sign of Jonah. For he came preaching repentance. The people did come to Me, but later on I came to destroy the land. But I also tell you that Jonah was in the belly of the whale for three days. On the third day he was spit out. On the third day my Son also arose. Who would arise on the third day and speak forth the word of the Lord? "
