30For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matt. 11:30

22After removing Saul, he made David their king. He testified concerning him: 'I have found David son of Jesse a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.' Acts 13:22

“There are signs everywhere that you are entering into a new season. The political sceneand landscape shows these things. You see it in the change of the weather and climate.There are changes in the church that are forthcoming as well. I tell you that new leadership is coming to the church. For many pastors and leaders will step down at thistime. They face many things. The stress and rigor of their profession will force theminto this decision. Many have not learned that my yoke is easy and my burden is light.I tell you that many have not learned to give their burdens to Me. I can be their shepherd. “

“There are new Davids coming to the church. They will be men after my own heart. They will serve Me and the people as their own. Watch and wait, for I will hastenthese things. “

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! 13No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.I Cor. 10:11-13

17For 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? I Peter 4:17

“I tell you that many things have crept into the church. Many will fall and have fallen to this sin. I tell you that it pervades our entire society. I am speaking of the sexual sins that plague your bodies. It is dangerous and it can destroy your relationship with Me.Come to Me and I will cleanse you of all these things. I will make you white as snow. These are things that many would wish not to talk about. “

“I have said in the past that many would fall during this time. It is an unfortunate thing when it happens to those in prominent positions. But I tell you that I am in the business of cleansing my church. Judgment has begun. Judgment will continue until every nook and cranny is exposed. “

“But I also tell you, to each and every one of you, that you be careful how you stand. Look not to those who have fallen, but be careful that you too would not fall. “

21 She named the boy Ichabod, [a] saying, "The glory has departed from Israel"-because of the capture of the ark of God and the deaths of her father-in-law and her husband. 22 She said, "The glory has departed from Israel, for the ark of God has been captured." 1 Samuel 4:20-22

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Gen. 1:1

“Gone are the days when those who would come to Me would come to Me in pretentiousness. I welcome all who would come to Me with stained hands. I welcome all who would come to Me from many lands. “

(I was shown a picture of the Lord as he held the world in His hands. He was bentover in great watchfulness and care as He held the globe. It was like a Father whoheld a child in his arms. The earth seemed to pulsate back and forth and then He letgo of it and it gave forth light. He brought me back in time to when the earth wascreated. I watched as I saw our planet being formed amidst the darkness. I saw a vastspace full of what was our galaxy and the surrounding universe. In the midst of thisgreat deep space, there was a ball and this is what became our earth. In the center ofwhat could be called a vortex, deep colors of space and earthen tones, our planetwas being created. From the motion of His hand light emerged on our planet.Then the vision faded.)

“I AM the Great Creator and out of nothing I created the earth and planets. The starsgave forth their great light. I gave this planet all my love. But now, it has becomeravaged. Man has corrupted it. In the end, through his great folly, he will destroyhimself. This he will do, but ‘Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth.’ The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. Remember that I have put forth great love into my creation, and yet, it will be destroyed. But my plan is that man will have an everlasting abode with Me. Throughout the ages, this has been my desire. It is my desire that all would come to Me, but I know that not all will. The end of the age is soon to come to man. Will you embrace my love for you? “

(I was shown again a scene, and this time it was of a city. There were great turrets and battlements that were in the city. Then a great wall of water came from the ocean and swept over it. I watched as this great torrent of water rushed in front of me. It swept over everything in its path. Everything was destroyed that came in contact with it. As this scene faded, then I saw a single man that sat upon a horse. He looked very proud as he held his head up high. The Lord then said, “The glory has faded, this is Ichabod.”

6 Then the LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? 7 If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must master it." 8 Now Cain said to his brother Abel, "Let's go out to the field." [d] And while they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him. Gen. 4

Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. (Jeremiah 30:7)

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a man who was seated upon what looked like a horse. I noticed that on his head he wore a hat which was like soldiers wore during the Revolutionary war in the early years of our countries’ founding. However, he was seated upon a goat instead of a horse. The spirit of the Lord then showed me a book which was opened up, and then He said: )

“My book is being opened up and I will begin to pour my judgments out upon the people of the world. I tell you that the people of the United States are falling under severe judgment. Many things are forthcoming, and I tell you that many will fall during the time that is to come. The time of Jacob’s Trouble is near at hand. There is violence in the streets. There is violence in your schools. There is deceit and corruption in your government like never before. How can I let these things continue as they have? You have gone the way of Cain. You have killed your brother in the streets. Where will you find peace in a time such as this? Where will you run to and where will you hide when the destroyer comes? It will be a time like never before, and it will not be like this again. Will you dispute these things and say, ’Surely, we will not fall unto judgment?’

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 3:2-4

3 Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me. 4 "Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation? Tell me, if you understand. 5 Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? Job 38:3-5

“I have told many and many know, that this is the last generation upon the earth. But there are still many scoffers who say, ‘Where is the evidence of His coming?’ Many will not know and many will not see, but for those who do “know” you will be given insight into these times. “

“I have said in my word that in the last days scoffers would come. I have also said that the love of many would wax cold. You have seen the violence in the streets. You have seen killings erupt in your schools. You have seen false prophets emerge. You have seen the devastation that nature can cause as it wrecks havoc across the globe. “

“Will a new campaign help? Will more money or programs devoted to these causes help?How can these things help when your entire government is corrupt? How can you make your children safe? How can you rid the world of serial killers and rapists? I ask you, is there anything you can do? “

“I am the only one who can help you with these things, and the only way I can help you is to bring judgment upon the earth. That is the only way that cleansing can come. If you have another answer to these things then tell Me what it is.”

12It had a great, high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel.14The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. Rev. 21: 12-1421The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass.2down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.

“Truly I tell you that this world that you now live in will burn. A new city is being set-up for my people. It will encompass the dimensions that are outlined in Ezekiel and Revelation. This city will be like none other that you have seen on this earth. “

“When you see all the chaos and you see cities destroyed, then remember your hope for the New Jerusalem. For the beauty of this city is set with my own gems. I tell you that the number twelve that is set for this city is an important number. There were twelve original apostles and there were twelve tribes of Israel. There are twelve kinds of fruit that can be eaten from the two trees in my new city. There are twelve hours of daylight and twelve hours of darkness. “

“Remember these numbers and remember my city that is to come.”

1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As men moved eastward, [a] they found a plain in Shinar [b] and settled there. 3 They said to each other, "Come, let's make bricks and bake them thoroughly." They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Gen. 11:1-3

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a flurry of activity. As I continued to watch thisscene, I noticed that something was being erected. With arms raised and loweredfuriously, a tower was beginning to be formed. At first the structure appeared tolook like a tree that was becoming bigger and bigger, but as I continued to watch,the structure was taking on the form of a tower. It went higher and higher into the sky. Eventually, a road of some type was being formed around the perimeter of the structure. It wound its way in a circular pattern around the edge of this tower, and people were walking on it. Then it seemed, that the activity had finished. The tower which was made of stone, resembled the ancient Tower of Babel. Then the vision faded.)

“The days are hastening to my soon return. Men have decided to advance their owncauses. In the ancient past, men attempted to build a Tower of Babel that would extendto the sky. They now continue their quest. Men and women want to reach the sky. Theythink that with their great achievements, they can become like Me. But I tell you, their quest is in vain. You cannot come up to my throne on your own. You can only come to Me through my Son. Thus, is the great tragedy of these days. Many search for their own answers. “

The seas have lifted up, O LORD, the seas have lifted up their voice;the seas have lifted up their pounding waves. Psalm 93:3

If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would havebeen like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea. Isaiah48:18
"The ocean waves are signaling a return of my spirit. I say, with theebb and flow of the earth's waves my spirit recedes and comes forthagain. Listen to my spirit. You will hear the heart throb of my lovefor my people."

"But I tell you that even as my spirit brings forth the ebb and flowof my love for my people, it signals that there are dangerous watersahead. "
(The spirit of the Lord showed the waters of the ocean and in the midstof these waters there were sharks encircling. Then I saw a giantwhirlpool begin to form, and the sharks were taken down into thewhirlpool and they disappeared.)

"With every ebb and flow of my spirit there is the gentle love andcomfort on one side of the wave, and on the other back side of thewave, there is a warning. And even as the waves enter the shoreline,they continue to pound against it. So when a storm starts, the wavesincrease in size, as they come towards the shoreline---even so, mywarnings increase."

Hosea 4:6 "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:

14We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. 15I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.[c] For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it. Romans 7

(There are times when some have asked me why not speak words that give more hope, or comfort. I know that God is a God of comfort and hope, but He also wants to prepare and warn us of the things that are to come.We all deal with two natures that struggle within us. We live in a world of false prophets and teachers. We see this more and more in the world around us. The Pharisaic spirit is still prevalent among us. The very things that Jesus pointed out to this group of people, is still an issue today. Having said that, our Father wants to point out these things to us so that we can come to maturity and not be tossed to and fro by every wind and doctrine that comes along. The message below speaks of these things. )

“Many of my people ask for hope. They want and need hope in Me. They hear of all the troubles aroundthe world and need an answer in the midst of the turmoil. I tell you that I will cast my light upon you. I tell you that I will bring to naught those things that stand against you. The weapons that are formed against you will not prevail. I give hope in the midst of the storm around you. But I tell you that there are times and instances when I must point out the shortcomings and grievances of the sin nature. “

“Let Me give you an analogy:”

“There are two different trains that are set out on two different tracks. One is set to go to the east and one is set to go to the west. The one to the east has everything set and ready to go. All of the passengers are ready and everything is set in preparation to go. Their destination is set for a city in the east. There they will meet family and friends and will have a joyous reunion. The other train travels to an unknown region of the globe. The journey looks pleasant and serene at first, but then it changes and becomes a wasteland. There are many unusual briars and landmarks along its tracks. In the end it comes to a city of no name. Here they come to buy and trade in unsavory goods and services. “

“These two trains represent two forms of prophetic words. The first one represents a word of edification and hope. Here there are the blessings of hope and family reunions. The second train that travels to the west ends up in a dark city. This represents a prophetic word of warning and correction. Those that need to be corrected and guided need to be told that they are on the wrong train. Many think that a word of warning is without hope. If they are told that they are on the wrong train and that they need to switch tracks won’t they be given hope? “

“My people, come to a better understanding of these things. Then you see that some words are not all just ‘doom and gloom.’ I want my people to come to the full measure of the stature of Christ in them. Then they will not be swayed.”

13"Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to. Matt. 23

23"Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cummin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. 24You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.

“I tell you that in this hour there are more people who would love to be critics rather than to be followers of Me. These are those who have “crept-into” the body of Christ. They may have beenfollowers of Me, but now they have chosen to criticize the body of Christ. These are those who haveargued and disputed about various Bible translations, forms of worship, and other things. They havechosen to follow the ‘letter of the law.’ You Pharisees and Sadducees, you have not changed sincethe time I walked upon the earth. You tried to catch Me in the act of not following the ‘letter of thelaw.’ What fruit can you produce? What seed has been planted in your soil? If you had planted theseed that I had given to you, then you would have chosen rich and healthy soil, but you have chosenanother soil. Your heart will be choked by the very things that you have found at fault in others.Repent of your deeds and return to Me. Then buy of Me fruit that will last. If not, then I will leave you to your own devices. “

“There is much that is going on around the world. There is much unrest and turmoil. Thereare many around the world that are living without hope. What can you do to dispel the hopeless-ness of the world? “

“Where have all the soldiers gone? The battle is raging but the soldiers are not on the field. There is no battle cry for the sound has not been made. Where are those who would trumpet thebattle cry? The call is going out. Who would sound the battle cry for this hour? Some are ready,but many are lagging behind. “

(The Lord showed me a scene of a high wall that was narrow at the top and there was not muchspace to stand upon it. It was made of stone and was very old in appearance. The sky was darkand it was raining. There was a ladder that was propped up against the wall so that some couldclimb it. There was someone who was in the midst of climbing, but he was struggling, and hewas bent-over because of age or condition. Then somehow a huge piece of black plastic wasspread across the side of the wall, so that those that would climb would not be seen. On the topof the wall I saw someone who was beginning to trumpet a message, but then it changed. Insteadof a trumpet the instrument was some type of flute or clarinet. The person playing the instrumentwas strange in appearance as well. They were not human in appearance, but were ugly, laughing,and evil-looking. Then the scene faded.)

“There are many who have been called to trumpet the message in this hour but they are afraid toclimb the ladder. They don’t want the world to see them. If my prophets will not blow the hornthen there will be others, and they will come from the enemy. Let the message not be from a“strange instrument” but let it be the message that I deliver.”

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. Isaiah 43: 19

And he said to them: "You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions! Mark 7:9

“Gone are the days when I will answer according to man’s dictates. I go against the norm. I do not answer a man’s prayer according to his own desires when his own desires are against my word. “

“Who is it that calls for Me? Who is it that seeks for Me like fresh water? Who asks for the answer that I will give? Who prays for others according to my desires? Who teaches and preaches not according to man’s traditions, but according to mine? Who preaches a “new word?”What has been said by you again and again? Do you have a new thing to offer? Many are they that have been ordained according to man’s traditions, but few are they that have been ordainedaccording to my spirit. I can use a donkey. I can use anything at my disposal. Do you have somuch fervor and enthusiasm that you think that anything you say will be met with open arms?

“I can tear down the system. I can get rid of how things are done in my churches. You stand andpreach from your pulpits, but do you think that you are the only one that has the answer? Who’sin charge here? Who is it that has the answer? Get rid of the system and maybe something newwill happen.”

I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven fromGod, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. Rev. 21:2

persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 2Cor.4:9

"I tell you that this war and present struggle (War with Israel andLebanon) will lead into the events that lead up to my soon return.Many look to the world crisis's in the world though, instead of toMe. Many things have shaped my people Israel into the people that theyare. Over the many years that they have come to be a nation, they havewandered lost, have been without a homeland, have been persecuted, andfinally, have had their own country and land. These recent events andstruggles are part of my prophetic time table. "

"The world looks in wonder at the events that play out in front oftheir television screens. All will view the bloodshed. All will seethe devastation. But few will know that I AM working behind the scenes. I AM working in and through the present crisis. There is no rightreason for war. All wars and struggles of this nature end inbloodshed. But I have a plan. Throughout all the cries of mercy andwailings that have gone up, I AM working my perfect plan in the midstof these nations. What is my perfect plan? It is that all would cometo know Me through this. It is that my name would be lifted up abovethe battle. Do not look to the politicians for help. Do not look tothe UN. Above the cries for mercy, the Commander-in-Chief will hearyour cries. "

8We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 2 Cor. 4: 8-10

"O afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted, I will build you with stones of turquoise, your foundations with sapphires. Is. 54: 11

“I have brought you through the whirlwind. The storms have tossed you back and forth. As I have said in my word, ‘You have been brought down, and crushed, but not forsaken.’ The winds have not caused you to disbelieve in my deliverance of you. So, the winds are used for my tools. “

“I tell you that now; the winds are blowing throughout the entire globe. They are blowing in the Middle East. These are events and circumstances that have been outlined in my word. The bloodshed and the violence will not end until my return. What nations will come to the aid of the homeland? What strategies will be made? I have said that the ‘boiling pot will boil over.’ The repercussions of this present crisis will ‘boil over’ into surrounding nations. Not all that is seen is plain to the eyes. Not all that is seen is obvious. This war and present crisis will in time, propel the world into the events that are outlined in my word concerning the last struggle. “

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

(The Lord showed me a vision of someone who was sweeping the floor. This person was sweeping all of the dust and debris under a rug. They thought that it would remain hidden and unnoticed. This continued and then suddenly what had been swept under the carpet had then taken shape. There were all types of hideous snakes swirling around on the rug. All of the debris that had been swept under had now taken shape into the form of snakes.)

“I tell you that many in this hour think that they can ‘sweep their sins under the carpet.’ They will be found out. Everything will be exposed. The light of my Son will reveal these things. I ask not that your house would be perfect, but I do ask that you would get it into order. Give Me your secret sins and I will cleanse you from all unrighteousness. Every sin that gives birth produces a certain thing. It all leads to death. But when you confess your sins I Am faithful to make you clean.”

(After this word from the Lord, is one from 2003 that speaks of the Parable of the Two Olive Trees. I thought that it was appropriate to send out with the present crisis that is now occurring in the Mideast.)

13 The word of the LORD came to me again: "What do you see?" "I see a boiling pot, tilting away from the north," I answered. 14 The LORD said to me, "From the north disaster will be poured out on all who live in the land. 15 I am about to summon all the peoples of the northern kingdoms," declares the LORD. "Their kings will come and set up their thrones in the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem; they will come against all her surrounding walls and against all the towns of Judah. Jeremiah 1

“I tell you that the events that are heating-up in the Mideast are events that are leading up to my soon return. These are days that are spoken of, have been prophesied, and have been wondered about for many years. I tell you that Israel is a boiling pot, and the pot will some day boil over. “

“I tell you to watch Syria. I tell you that strategies are at work. The wind is blowing and eyes will be taken off of Iraq for a while. Look throughout the globe and you will see many political fires burning. There is war within Iraq. There are factions at work within Iran. There is the struggle that continues in Afghanistan. There is mounting concern over North Korea, and now the present crisis in Israel. These forces and this unrest that is happening, is a sure sign that the entire globe is in a state of unrest and turmoil. What great political leader could solve such problems? Who will men look to in their time of need? When the entire world’s crisis is at stake will you look to the news for your comfort? Who will ride the horse that will deliver you from these struggles? Look to my word and look to my Son for comfort. “

“I tell you that the boiling pot will boil over.”

RO 11:17 If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root, [18] do not boast over those branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you. [19] You will say then, "Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in." [20] Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but be afraid. [21] For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.

RO 11:22 Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God: sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off. [23] And if they do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. [24] After all, if you were cut out of an olive tree that is wild by nature, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree!

RO 11:25 I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, so that you may not be conceited: Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. [26] And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: "The deliverer will come from Zion;he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.

"Behold there are two olive branches in my midst. There is the house of Israel and there is the new house that has been founded in the latter rain. My people are in either one or the other. Israel was formed some time ago from the one olive tree. And you have been grafted in as you once were a wild olive tree. As it is written, 'All Israel will be saved.' They are saved through election because of my promises. While there has been a war of enmity between her seed and yours, now I say that what was once far off is now at the door. For I am bonding Jew with Greek. I am bonding free with bondman. Your borders will be entered into, oh land of Israel. You will be attacked from without and from within. Long has been your persecution and long have been your trials. But I am using you as an instrument. I am using you as an instrument in these last days. For even though your borders are always in turmoil, you are my promised seed. For I have called you forth even from the bosom of Abraham; and I say that even though there is trouble all around you, that I will supernaturally intervene. For the surrounding nations and countries will be held in the balance, but you will be lifted up. You will be lifted from the slaughter. The blows from Palestine and the blows from Syria, may fragment you, but I will rescue you with my mighty hand. "

"But to the other olive branch I say, 'Do not think that you are held in the ground just by yourself.' For I alone have grafted you in. So I say to pray for your brothers and sisters who are in Israel. You oh America, your borders have been safe, but not for long. I have lifted the protective net that has been held over your borders. In the days ahead you will know that it is I alone who have held back the slaughter. You will experience what it is like to lose your strength in battle. For you have put your trust in weaponry and in national pride. So, do not boast because you are an olive tree. Your trust must not be in horses or chariots. Your trust in these things will fail. But I stand above the earth and I execute judgment. "

All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away. Is. 64:6

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. Matt. 11:29

“Shut the doors and come into my temple, says the Lord. Come in with outstretched arms and a willing heart. Today when you approach my throne, know that you can lay your burdens at my feet. None is worthy and none can come to Me in their own righteousness, but I will turn your unrighteousness into my righteousness. As the branch cannot sustain itself without the tree, so you can nothing apart from Me. I tell you that there are many in this hour who think that they can do great things apart from Me. There are ministers on their own strength, who perform great acts. They go through the motions and they have all the right moves, but I tell you that it is a circus act. Are you here to perform before the people and to seek your own glory? I tell you that the very things that you perform with will be taken away from you. You will be brought low. You who seek the glory of men will fall. Into the desert regions you will be brought for a season. Then when you return, perhaps you will be more humble of heart. “

“To those who are of a contrite spirit and heart, I say that I will raise you up in this hour. I will raise you up to places of honor. There will be a new breed of leaders. They will serve before my throne. They will not give my glory to another. “

10The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
Bread Upon the Waters] Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days you will find it again. Ecc. 11:1

“I have come to give life more abundantly, and the abundance that I give is greater than that of the world. In the world you will have lack, because the way of the world is not the way of my spirit. Many seek riches and the way to a better life, but their way leads to emptiness and ruin.”
“The time is rapidly approaching when the world systems will topple. Those who have put their trust in the world system will come to ruin. I have the resources and all riches can be found in Me. I will always take care of my own. To the fatherless and to those who have lost everything, I say to cast your bread upon the waters for it will come back to you. “
“Do not envy those who have more than you, for surely, their time is limited. Be satisfied with what you have. If you have your needs met, then surely you will go about the world doing what I’ve called you do.”
“This world and everything in it will change. For new heavens and a new earth will replace the present system. “

for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said: "Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you." Eph. 5: 14

And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. Rom.13:11

“I am equipping my sons and daughters during these days for what lies ahead. I am preparing them for the siege that is coming upon the earth. For I tell you, difficult and terrible days are ahead. There will be days like no other that has been upon the earth. For I am soon to come back for my own. Many will run wild during these days. Some will have found the Shepherd of their souls to carry them through these days. But I tell you that the sheep will be scattered—from the north, the east, the west and the south.”

(The Spirit of the Lord showed me a scene of many horses which were running wild, and jumping over fences and other obstacles. They were in a hurry, and appeared to be very frantic. He also showed me the Great Shepherd and in His arms He held a lamb. He was carrying this lamb safely next to His chest, protecting it from the dangers around. I then saw men who were shoveling dirt and placing it back into the ground; it was being shoveled on top of black plastic liners of some sort. Then I saw bodies lying in the ground, and I heard the phrase, “Oh sleeper, awake.” But those who lay in the ground had not awakened. They were still sleeping. They appeared to be very prestigious and kingly in appearance.)

“I tell you that many in these days will lie sleeping in their slumber. They will not awaken. They will remain oblivious to the things around them. But I tell you that it is time to awaken from your slumber. It is time to wake up. “

"The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. Matt. 13:44

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! Rom. 11:33

He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. Dan. 2:22

“I am the God of both the weak and the strong. I am He who directs the wind to blow and the sun to rise in the morning. By Me, nations fall and rise again from the ground. By Me, there are riches and wisdom to be found without measure. The world seeks after riches but the deepest riches are to be found in the caverns of my treasure house. I sustain the weak, and I lift up the weary. By Me, kings rule and some are banished. “

“All of you who seek the answers will find them. I am able to do far exceeding than what you can imagine. Do not run after words from the Lord, but seek Me first and I will give you the answers. Many seek after prophets and the words that they can give them in this hour. Am I not the one that gives the answers? Am I not the one that satisfies your souls? “

“There is a narrow way and you can find it. It is etched in the mountains. It is buried deep. There you will find it. Then you will find the pearl of great price. “

Does a maiden forget her jewelry, a bride her wedding ornaments? Yet my people have forgotten me, days without number. Jeremiah 2:32

“Be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world. I have overcome everything in your life. The times that you have passed through the waters, I have been there with you. I am with you when you are in the fiery furnace. From the deepest waters to the highest heights, I am there with you. “

{I was given a vision of the Lord and He was holding something in his hand. He seemed to twirl it back and forth in his arms and then it was released and was suspended in mid-air. It was a beautiful delicate crown with precious stones laid upon it. It looked very much like what Miss America wore after she had been chosen. I asked, “Who is this for?” The Lord replied, ‘This is the crown for my bride.’ I saw the beautiful crown as it was suspended in the air as if a body would be below it, but there was none. I asked, “Where is the bride’s body?” The Lord said, ‘She is not ready yet.’ “I tell you that I am working and perfecting my bride, but she is not ready yet. She has become soiled and she is not dressed in her beautiful gowns. [The Lord now showed me a picture of the bride, I saw a gown that looked like a marriage gown but it was tattered, torn, and had moth-like holes all through it. It was like the gown was perhaps beautiful at one time, but now it was being worn by a harlot.] Then He showed me another scene and said, “This is what my bride’s gown should look like, but she is dead.” I saw a beautiful gown for a bride, with a cape or robe draped around it, but there was no head. It looked ghostly in appearance.}

“I tell you that I ask not that my bride would buy her garments from the world. For this is what she has done. She has mixed the things of the world with my word. I have the proper clothes for her, but she must exchange the things of the world with my kingdom. “

[ The Day of the LORD ] "And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Joel 2:28

“I tell you that this has been a year of many changes for people this year, but many of these changes will bring you into my perfect plan for your lives. I have plans that have been established since the foundation of this earth for you. I will resurrect many of those dreams and purposes that have been formed in you. It is time for those who have dreamed to dream big dreams. You have not dreamed big enough, nor have you followed the dreams that I have given unto you. How can you grasp a star if you are standing upon the earth? How can you see beyond your own self if you’re looking at your feet? “

"O afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted, I will build you with stones of turquoise, your foundations with sapphires. 12 I will make your battlements of rubies, your gates of sparkling jewels, and all your walls of precious stones. Isaiah 54: 11-13

3 and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts- 4 to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, 5 to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of craftsmanship. Ex. 31:3-5

“I have been in the business of refining my servants. I have shaped them like a blacksmith would shape metal. The metal has to be hot in order for it to be pliable.I AM the Master Creator. I AM in the business of creating. But I tell you that I work differently than the artists of this world. They work with the natural objects that theyfind. “

(The Lord showed me a conveyor belt, and on it there were all types of various stones.They were decorative-type stones that an artist would use. There was also a channel thattransported hot liquid in it. This liquid was molten and very hot. It appeared to be usedfor the purposes of creating something. I then saw someone with the finished project that they had created. It was a mask that they were placing over their face. This mask was being placed on their face to make them appear to look more beautiful in appearance.)

“I tell you that as the Great Creator I create in the inner man. I refine chambers of innerbeauty. I add lustrous streams of precious stones there. I add opals and other preciousstones to make the perfect creation. “

“I AM the Great Creator. Let Me create the perfect masterpiece in you.”

In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble. 2 Tim. 2:20

Nebuchadnezzar then approached the opening of the blazing furnace and shouted, "Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here!" So Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire, Daniel 3:26

(It seems that I have been in a fiery trial over the last 8-9 months at the school where I have worked. It has been one of the most difficult times in my life. I thought that it would become easier after the New Year had begun, but it had continued. There were times when I wondered why all of this was happening to me. I continually would pray and anoint my classroom and myself so that the enemy would not enter in. All of this is coming to an end. We all face these types of trials in our lives. They are not easy, nor are they things we would want. But God uses them for His purposes and after we go through them, the cooling-down process gives enables us to continue and live our lives victoriously.)

“Be still and know that I am God. I am He who has brought you this far. When you go through the fire it will not burn you. When you pass through the waters they will not overwhelm you. For I have designed the furnace. I have set the temperature dial. It is equipped for my purposes. When the furnace’s heat has reached its climax then you know that the fire trial is coming to an end. Then on the other side of the furnace you are welcomed with open arms. There is a cooling-down period that must appear. The timeframe will be swift though. I will not try my servants beyond what they can endure. “

(The spirit of the Lord showed me several shelves of pottery that had been fired in a kiln. I looked at them; they seemed rather plain and ordinary in appearance like any piece of pottery would look like after it had been fired for the first time. Then I saw a huge pitcher, and out of this vessel water was being poured.)

“I tell you that after the first firing is done, I then pour forth my cooling process onto my vessels. “

(Again I was shown several shelves of pottery. This time I noticed that there appeared a glaze of some sort that had been applied to the surfaces. It was rather translucent and white in appearance. One by one then, each of these vessels was being submerged into water. It was as if they were being plunged into the depths of deep water like a cleansing and cooling process.)

“I tell you that this process will continue until I come for my church. In the end, then there will be vessels for noble and ignoble purposes.”
