42And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these littleones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he willcertainly not lose his reward." Mat.. 10:42

learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend thecause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow. Is. 1:17

"I have seen the love of many being poured out for many upon this earth. I have seen the struggles that many of you face each and every day. I have seen the sin that plagues many of you upon this planet as well. I have seen the lies, deceit, and murderous intentions in the hearts of many. I know your hearts and I have heard your pleas for mercy. And yet in spite of all these things, I have an every-lasting love for you. I have a love for the lost and the fatherless. I have a love for the stranger and the downtrodden. I want you to love those who are not beautiful. I want you to love those who are not popular. For not many of you came from noble birth. Not many of you came from wealthy stock. I have asked you to lay your life down for your friends. The greatest commandment I have given for you upon this earth is to love. A love that seeks not its own. A love that is sacrificial. So I tell you this day, find time for the fatherless. Find time for the stranger. Find time for the bereaved. As you do it unto the least one of these, then you do it unto Me."

(I have sometimes wondered at the contrast I have seen of propheticmessages over the last 10-15 years. I have had an individual latelywho has sent me messages that speak of the great promises for thechurch and individuals, but do not speak of the judgment that God isbringing to the church and the world. This message below speaks ofthese things. I hope that it sheds light on these issues.)

Isaiah 65

Judgment and Salvation

"I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me; I was found bythose who did not seek me. To a nation that did not call on my name, Isaid, 'Here am I, here am I.'2 All day long I have held out my handsto an obstinate people, who walk in ways not good, pursuing their ownimaginations-3 a people who continually provoke me to my very face,offering sacrifices in gardens and burning incense on altars of brick;

"I reveal certain aspects of my prophetic word to certain individuals.To those who have been taught about blessings and promises, theprophetic word is steeped in these things. To many of theseindividuals I have not revealed my judgment. They see things onlythrough the spectrum of what they have been taught. They just see aportion. To other individuals I reveal the potential of God's peopleto rise above their circumstances and to claim the kingdom in my name.These are the teachers who have come out of the "word movement," and Itell you they have a place in my kingdom. To another portion I havegiven to certain individuals a taste of what is yet to come. Theyhave been trained in my spirit, and have suffered long at the expenseof their training. To these I have revealed my judgment. They speakonly what I have them to speak. They know my word and my promises,but they have also heard of my distaste of the sin and hypocrisy thatplagues the church. They have been misunderstood by some, and yetthey continue.

My people, I want you to rise above your circumstances for sure, but Ialso want you to be prepared for the onslaught that is to come. Itdoes little good if you are able to rise above your circumstances butyou are not prepared for what is to come. "

2He replied,[a] "When evening comes, you say, 'It will be fairweather, for the sky is red,' 3and in the morning, 'Today it will bestormy, for the sky is red and overcast.' You know how to interpretthe appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of thetimes. Matt. 16: 1-3

"What is the color of the skies?" Many will ask in the days that are to come. I'll tell you that for those who do not know Me it will become dark and overcast. It will be filled with ominous clouds. It will look threatening and it will not give forth light.

But for those who do know Me there is a potential for new developments in your life. The light from my throne will burst forth upon the scene. It will illuminate your paths in front of you. It will house a storehouse for you from above. But even with bright skies and new developments, the forecast calls for upcoming judgment. For the walls of many cities will fall down. A foreign power will lay siege to your coastlines. You, great power of the west, have been weighed in the balance and have been found wanting. The stroke of my hand will fall heavily upon the nation. The skies will indeed be ominous in that day. Seek where you would run for shelter. Know that the hour will be late. Look to the wisdom and strength of others who have planned for that day. Have the great prophets of this hour warned you of these events? They have neither seen nor heard of them. It is only to those who would have ears to hear that I have spilled my messages to."

While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.1 Thess. 5:3
"It is a time of peace and tranquility", that is what many think as theysit idly in their homes. 'But what of the approaching storm', some saywho know of the time and hour. "Never mind," they say, "That does notconcern us."

There are two camps of people in this hour. There are those who see the urgency of the hour and they have warnedmany of the hour in which we are living. These are those who spendtime with Me. These are those who have trimmed their lamps. These arethose whose lamps are filled with oil. But then there are the others.These are those who are like ostriches. Their heads are buried in thesand. They have spent years with their heads oblivious to therealities of the times in which we are living.

I ask you this day, 'Which camp are you in?' Consider rightly before you answer.Consider what type of person you are. Consider your place among themasses. "

14Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy;without holiness no one will see the Lord. 15See to it that no onemisses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to causetrouble and defile many. Hebrews 12:14, 15

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost." Luke 9:10

"Those that are for Me need to stand up and consider themselvesworking for Me---either you're for Me or against Me. I tell you thatthere is no more middle ground any more. For the time is rapidlyapproaching when you will be held accountable for every word that yousay. Those in high places will set-up decrees to establish youralligance to the state and to the political powers that are present inthe land. In time, many of the freedoms that you now have will bewrapped in the garb of "the new establishment."

The new establishment" will be set-up according to the dictates of theland. The man that will set himself up on the throne, who will callhimself great among men, will bring these things into motion.

But I tell you for now, live peacefully with all men, as best as youcan. Seek how you can win over the lost. Seek how you can feed thehungry. For the law of the kingdom is not just measured in words butin actions. Those who have humbled themselves to serve Me will beelevated to places of leadership. Those who have spoken wrongly in myname will be disgraced and will be held accountable for every falseword that they have said in my name.

In time all things will come to pass that have been written down in myword. The wind blows and you don't know from whence it comes. So itis with my prophetic time table. The events will be set in motion andthey will fall like dominoes. "

8 Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.9 My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you. When your judgments come upon the earth, the people of the world learn righteousness.10 Though grace is shown to the wicked, they do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil and regard not the majesty of the LORD. Is 26: 8-10 Z

"The ocean rolls its waves back and forth. The sea is in torment. Its waves lap up against the shoreline. From everlasting unto everlasting my love has been extended to mankind. I have given him a place on this earth to take care of it. But I tell you that he has kept his duties unfulfilled. Instead of watching over this earth and its resources, he has been in the business of misusing it. My original garden has turned into a wasteland in places, and man has turned himself over to the destroyer. The destroyer has entered into the heart of man and where there were the fruits of the spirit, there now is jealousy, rage, and everything that is against the spirit. I have given my abundance unto many, and yet many seek other modes of arriving at the truth. The birds will sing a different song in that day. All creation knows how man has destroyed my planet. On the sundering seas the ships are coming. They are coming for those who are true to Me. They are coming to place a wreath upon your head. For the day of battle will come upon your land. The plan has been set upon the hearts of many. From the east they will come; and yet I will offer protection to those whose heads have been identified. For in that day a tumult will arise among the nations. Many things will be held in the balance. And then soon afterwards, the great deceiver among the nations will come and will offer peace to many. But in his hand is vengeance and power. His arm is ready for battle. Do not trust his devices. Many will be deceived in that day. But those who overcome I will give them my white stone."

1That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched- this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. 3We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. I John 1:1-3

John 1
The Word Became Flesh
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning.3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
"As I rise within you, grasp a hold of that part of you that can see Me in your life. See Me in my entirety. See Me throughout all the ages of man. See Me as I was there at creation. See Me as I died on the cross. See Me as I shall return upon this earth. If you can see Me throughout all the ages of time then you will know Me as the Alpha and the Omega. Then you will know that I AM truly one with the Father. For in the beginning was the word---truly, in the beginning; before anything that was, I was there. I was there beholding the creation of the Father. For as yet you begin to understand, then you will know as I have known, to be grafted into the divine plan of the Father. For I have made you to be sons and daughters of God. I've caused you to be one with Me. For that voice within you is Me. Seek Me and I shall be found.

Before you were carried in your mother's womb I had a plan for each of you. It was written down in the halls of my Father. There is a destiny that is marked out for you. Have some of you run up against roadblocks in your life? It is because you are not fulfilling the plan of my Father. Seek Me for the plan of your life and then the doors of heaven will be opened up for you."

5 The Lord, the LORD Almighty, has a day of tumult and trampling and terror in the Valley of Vision, a day of battering down walls and of crying out to the mountains. Isaiah 22:5
"A new day and a new morning, filled with the surprises of a new day. What will you do and what will you hear from Me this day?

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a scene of a man sitting upon a log next to the ocean. As I looked closer I noticed that the man was myself. I was gazing out into the ocean. I saw myself looking out into the ocean and watched the waves come in and lap against the shoreline. Then I saw a ship approaching. It was a large sail ship like was used upon the ocean some 200 years ago or so. As the ship approached, I zoomed in and saw its rigging and equipment. My eyes looked where one would peer out from the mast above. Then I saw a telescope and I was looking through it as if the lens was enlarged and made more clear for one to see out of. A scene slowly emerged and in this scene I saw people running in panic. They ran across the area in front of my vision and then fires broke out in front of me. A tank emerged upon the scene and I watched as this military tank came across the landscape in front of me and slowly went down an area to my left. The vision then faded....)

The vision that I just showed you is one of utmost importance. For as I have said, this nation will be brought into the forefront as others approach your shoreline."

10 The LORD has brought over you a deep sleep: He has sealed youreyes (the prophets he has covered your heads (the seers). Isaiah 29:10

14 The visions of your prophets were false and worthless; they didnot expose your sin to ward off your captivity. The oracles they gaveyou were false and misleading. Lamentations 2:14

"Within a matter of a few years this nation (America) will be attackedfrom the outside. Those who have trusted in their own resources willfail. Those who look to preachers who will give them comforting wordswill be disillusioned. Those who say, 'If we lift this up in prayerthen surely God will divert it.' I say that it has been set inmotion. It has been long in coming. The times and the seasons pointto the soon transference of these things. I have seen your plight. Iwatch as this nation continues down its slippery slope. Are you anydifferent from your predecessors of old? You pretend to be a nationthat is devoted to Me, but inside you are filled with deceit."

Even your major prophets speak of good things that are to come. Theyfocus on joyful happenings. They look at the surface, but they havenot penetrated the heart. They give people what they want to hear.They are being lulled to sleep. Who will speak for Me in this hour?Who will tell the truth? Who will prepare and warn the people?

19They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity-for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him. 20If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. 2 Peter 2:19-20

The spirit of the Lord showed me a bird that was flying. As I watched it, I noticed that its plumage was changing. What I first thought was a dove had changed into an eagle and then this eagle's feathers were changing. The plumage took on the appearance of the American flag. The eagle flew high into the sky, and then at a certain point, it fell to the earth. As it fell, it took on the appearance of a falling plane that was spiraling down upon the earth. The eagle then lay there motionless upon the ground. Within a few moments, there were several small eagles that began to crawl around and then these took flight into the air. As they rose, they looked like oriental forms of some type. Then all of them came back to the ground and opened up a book to read. They were all reading intently in the book, and all of them seemed to think that they had the correct answer.

"I tell you that the American's form of government has been represented by the form of an eagle. An eagle represents freedom; but I tell you that many of your freedoms are losing ground. They will fall to the ground. There are others that are coming who think that they know what the eagle's ideals mean. They will attempt to read your laws and resources. They will try to rewrite your constitutional form of government. I tell you that a leader is coming, and this leader will take America in another direction. What will seem like initially are good things, will ultimately be seen as losing your freedoms. "

13This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.[a] 14The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man's judgment: 1 Cor. 2: 13-15

"What is there in this universe that you would like to know about? What aspect of my creation are you curious about? If you would look to the past it is clearly written for you for you to know, but what of the future? You know of the signs that are clearly written for you--You see the catastrophes and the wars that plague mankind. You hear of the struggles of many. You look to many for answers and yet you cannot find them.

When the winds blow you see the effects of it; and yet you cannot see the wind. You hear of the struggles of many, and yet you do not know the reasons why. The days come and the events of the day unfold unto you, and yet do you not see Me involved in them? You see things through your natural eyes and not through mine. You go about your business as usual, but where am I to be found in the clamor? Where is wisdom to be found? You search for it as of gold and silver. You dig up the mountains in search for it, and yet, it is well within your grasp. The same can be said of seeing the signs and the seasons before you. When you hear the rustle of the leaves and you hear the birds sing, do you not hear my voice beckoning to you? I am there in the woods. I am there amidst the clamor of the city. Seek Me and I shall be found. Dig deep and you will find the answer to your questions. Look close and view the signposts that mention of my soon return. There I shall be found. "

5 He moves mountains without their knowing it and overturns them in his anger. 6 He shakes the earth from its place and makes its pillars tremble. 7 He speaks to the sun and it does not shine; he seals off the light of the stars. Job 9:5-7

2 "The LORD was very angry with your forefathers. 3 Therefore tell the people: This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'Return to me,' declares the LORD Almighty, 'and I will return to you,' says the LORD Almighty. 4 Do not be like your forefathers, to whom the earlier prophets proclaimed: This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'Turn from your evil ways and your evil practices.' But they would not listen or pay attention to me, declares the LORD. Zechariah 1: 2-4

"I AM with my servants until the end of time. When the winds blow and the oceans rise, I will be there. I will there when all else fails you. I will be there when the world comes to an end. When all else fails you I will be there.

Who comes to your aid when everything is falling apart in your world? Who lights the way for you to see? I AM the one who can do all these things. I tell you, you need to know that I will be there. For when your darkest hour comes, everything else will fail you. Be prepared for dark hours ahead. Be prepared for world takeovers and upheavals. Be prepared for more wars and surprises in the midst of your daily lives. I have sent my messengers to warn you of these days, but who has taken heed? I have set many as watchmen.Yet many of you still go to psychics and your astrologers. But the truth will unfold. The earth will be opened up. It will swallow-up those who have given false guidance. Gone will be the days when you can run safely to your rooms and hide. All will be laid open in that hour. I will expose the sins of many. I will shake your houses. I will shake your governments. I will shake the land. But through all these things, and through all these shakings, I will be there."
