I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to bloodbefore the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.And everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalemthere will be deliverance, as the LORD has said, among the survivors whom the LORD calls. Joel 2:30-32

"This will be a year of great change for many people. The reaper will overrun the sower, but I tell you that the harvest is soon to be over. For I AM soon to wrap up all things. The world as you know it will continue on for a few more years, but behold, those things spoken of in my word will suddenly occur. Nation will rise-up against nation. The moon will eventually turn to blood. For on that great and terrible day that I come the earth will be changed. Behold....it is not as far off as you may think, but I still have a few more of my sons and daughters to come into the kingdom."

(The Lord has shown me more than once an elephant. But the main focus of the animal was to see its ears. An elephant has very large ears. We need to have large ears so that we can hear what the spirit has to say. From the midst of the ears then I saw someone playing a clarinet and then some drums. A man was playing on the drums to a regular beat. He was dressed as one would be during the Colonial period in America. He continued playing but was walking backwards. He was walking on the rollers of a tank. He would walk but was overrun by the tanks wheels and rollers as it went across a barren landscape. Then the tank would shoot forth its ammunition in the form of fire across the land. It burned everything in sight. Then the vision ended.)

"I tell you that the nation of America's shores will be breached. I have said this more than once. As you continue to 'stay-off' foreign powers and legionaries you will suddenly be taken unawares. But I have a plan in store for my own. I will protect my own and will bring them to safe havens. Be ye not dismayed, nor be ye troubled about the events of these things, but I tell you these things so that you wouldn't be taken unawares.

I also say that in this coming year many ministries will fall due to their pride. A great sifting is being done in the body of Christ. My true servants will rise unto their callings. I will provide for them and they will come unto my completion."

"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn " 'a man against his father, a daughter against her mother,a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. Matt. 10:33-35 -

"What is there to say to my people? What message is it that they would want to hear? Do they want comfort or reproof at this season of the year? Are they waiting for something to happen in their lives? Are they aware that I am coming back soon? Will they recognize Me when they see Me? What kind of Jesus is it that you are looking for? What is it that you are looking for in him? Are you looking for the meek and mild one that held children? Are you aware of the one who admonished the Pharisees? Look for Me as one who is coming back with a sword. Look for Me as one who will separate the sheep from the goats."

Behold, the sword is even being held now. Even now it is separating those things in your lives which are a hindrance to Me. The sword will separate sons from mothers. It will separate family members whose eyes are not on Me. For the tables must be set upside down before they can be set in order. "

"What are the times of your appointments? What are the appointments that you make for in life? Do you keep all of them? Do you show up on time? You find that these appointments in life are important to you. So why wouldn't it be important to keep an appointment with Me? I need to hear from you. I need to hear what you have to say to Me. If you come and listen to Me I will tell you things that will be important for you to hear. But it seems that life moves so quickly. It seems that the pace of life can cause one to forget the importance of spending time with Me. Keep your appointments with Me. Find the time to listen to Me. Then you will be prepared for the day. Then you will know what to do in the midst of the battle. "

4 That night the word of the LORD came to Nathan, saying: 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?" ' 2 Samuel 7:4-7

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ. Col. 2:8

"Now is the time. Now is the time to speak your mind in this hour. Many of you have been holding back. Many of you have mixed my word with other things. Some are ashamed of the gospel. You live in a world filled with a host of other philosophies and religions. Many have mixed the bowl of iniquity with my spirit. Many are enticed by the trappings of these other religions. But I tell you that they are empty and devoid of substance. There is truth to be found only in Me. I AM the truth. However, many in churches have gone through the motions. They have set up the ceremony. They have put everything in place, but they have not made room for Me. I had my servant Nathan come to David. He knew that the king was about to build Me a tabernacle. But he also told him that the spirit of the Lord has never been confined to a building. You set up your great monuments and buildings to Me, but I am not pleased with them. My building and my church is in your heart."

"I tellyou, my people, that a great war is coming upon your nation. It willcome when you least expect it. It will come from a nation that hasprepared itself for these things. The nation of Red China will rise-upagainst your nation. They will be joined in forces with someone else.For I tell you, these things have been prophesied and spoken about. They will come swiftly and without much preparation. For I tell youthat few would even think that this would happen to your homeland.

Itwill be a time of dire need. It will be a time when many will loseheart. It will be a time when negotiations will not help. Afterthings have changed and the focus is taken off the Middle East, thenafter a short period of time these things will happen. For truly I sayto you, I want you to be ready for these things. I don't want you tobe burying your head in the sand. I don't want you to be unprepared. Some have been warned and have decided to prepare. Some have preparedwith shelters. Some have prepared with food. For when you join forceswith others then you will be stronger in your time of need. I will notleave my people comfort less. I will spare my own. I will shelter youfrom the storm, but I don't want you to be taken unawares."

So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. Matt. 24:44

"I now await my people to come to Me. I have clothed them in the garb of my righteousness. I await for them to come to Me. In the stillness of the morning, come to Me. Come to Me, and listen to what I have to say. Let the sounds of the seasons pour forth their speech. Let the songbird sing. When the midnight hour comes will you be ready? Will you be ready when your faith is tested? When men and women cry out to the hills to fall on them, will you be ready? When all seems hopeless will you be ready? What is the sound of the season? What is it that you await to hear buried within this season? What is it that you await to hear?

"In the midst of great turmoil there can be peace. In the midst of great change, a new direction can be found. Lift up your hands and see what I can do in your life. Lift them up in the midst of the storm. Surround yourself with good friends, and make sure that your idleness does not lead you to do evil. The days are rushing forward, and in time all things will come to pass. Where once there was great sorrow, there can be found joy. Check and see what your priorities in life are. Consider a balancing beam: which side is heavy and which side is light? Do your priorities lie heavily upon the side of work? If so, what is the measure of your family life? Does your life find itself absorbed in things that are of no consequence? Let the winds of change, through my spirit, create new possibilities in your life. Let Me surround you with rubies and sapphires. For those of you who have been in the caves, I will now give you my light. Then you will come upon a new day. Then you will come out into the open."

21"His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You havebeen faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of manythings. Come and share your master's happiness!' Matthew 25:21

"Are you a prophet or an apostle in this hour? Then I would tell you that I am taking you unto the next level in this hour. I have said in my word that he who is faithful in the little things would be given greater things to do, and so, many of you have been faithful to Me in these things. So....what would I have you to do next? I would have you to put into practice those things that you have been teaching and saying. I would have you to spend deeper times of communion with Me. Then I will give you deeper things of Me. Then you will see past the mirror that reflects my image. Then you will see with my eyes. Then you will hear with my heartbeat. Then you will see past the living and the dead of this generation. Then time will be known as a creation of mine. "

9Byfaith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in aforeign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who wereheirs with him of the same promise. 10For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God. Heb. 11

"The path that leads deep into the forest will indicate that you are on apath that is unknown to you. Many have traveled down unknown paths tothem. Consider those who have gone before you. Many of them did notknow where they were going, and yet they were led by my hand. The pathmay be laden with debris and other things. Do not stumble on them butknow that these obstacles give you an opportunity to look to Me. Socontinue on the path for it leads to your destination.

Haveyou been this way before? Is there anything that indicates an air offamiliarity? Have you seen and heard these things before? Breath deepamidst the sounds that are around you. You are on a journey that onlyyou can travel on. While others may have similar circumstances, onlyyou are the one who has been given this path. Know that everythinghappens for a reason. Know that trials and heartaches come into thelives of all my people. The rain does indeed fall on the just and theunjust, but there are trials and things that are designed just for you.I have a design and plan just for you. While it is true that some ofthese things come from the enemy, it is also true that I can cause themto benefit you. So indeed, it is true that 'All things do worktogether for good for those who have been called according to mypurposes.'

Stop and think for a moment: If you were not onthe path that you are one, what or who do you think you would be? What experiences would you be going through now? Would you be facinganother type of trial? So indeed, trust the path that you are on. Know that it is uniquely designed just for you. I have mapped out allthe course of events. And if you stay on this path I will bring youto your destination."

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

"Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. Is. 65:17

"In future years I will redesign the surface of the earth. I will create new heavens and a new earth. The earth as you know it, will be done away with. I have a city prepared for you, my people. It is a city without spot or blemish. For it will come out of the sky and it will be set in its former place. But what of the future before this takes place? I tell you that you can clearly see the events that will lead up to my soon return about this earth. You will see the sign of continued birth pangs upon the earth. You will see the continued sign of the unrest and violence within your cities. You will see the sign of new age philosophies taking precedence in all areas of society. But clearly you will know and see the sign that when unrest and chaos is at its peak that a leader will arise and will say that he has all of the answers. But what are you to do when the terror arises in your own land? What are you to do when your shorelines have been breached? I have instructed some of you to plan for these days. You would be wise to plan for them ahead of time. For when the day comes you may not have food or water. It will not be immediate, but over time the supplies will diminish. The surplus that many of your nations have will slowly give way. The graineries will eventually run out. Consider how the squirrels prepare for winter. They laughed at Noah when he built the ark. But I tell you, it is wise to prepare for the days ahead. It is not in the far distant future that I talk of. Consider how with a switch or with a move of the mouse, an entire network can be shut down. The great technological age has its set-backs. How can the great octopus be controlled? Watch and wait."

1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: 2 a time to be born and a time to die,a time to plant and a time to uproot,3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, 5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain,6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,7 a time to tear and a time to mend,a time to be silent and a time to speak,8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. Ecc. 3

"Is there not a time for everything under heaven? Is there not a season? Is there not a time for every purpose? I tell you that there is a time for everything in Me. There is a time to guard your lips. There is a time to scatter. There is a time to laugh. There is a time to cry. There is a time to work and there is a time to play. There is a time for war and there is a time for peace. There is a time for silence. There is a time for mercy. There is a time for judgment. There is a time for all these things and more. There is always a time to spend time with Me in prayer. Have you not noticed? Have you not seen that the sun continues to shine; that the sun continues to go down at the end of each day? Have you not noticed that there is day and there is night? The days are marked and so are the seasons. So, because of this, there are seasons in your lives. There are seasons within your lives and there are seasons within my body. What season is my body in now? I tell you that she is in a season of preparation. She is in a season for preparing for what lies ahead. For gone will be the days of the camp meetings. Gone will be the days of the seminars. Gone will be the days of the great assemblies. For my body is to go onto maturity. My body is to go past talking about salvation. My body is to go past talking about the laying on of hands. My body is to go past talking about the resurrection of the dead. You are to go onto maturity. You are to be strengthened in the inner man. You are to feed on my manna. For the world will not always go on as it has. The time will come when your preparation will lead into action. You will be called upon to act when the day of decision comes upon your land. Will your preparation have paid off? Will your maturity have paid off? "

20 "Gather together and come; assemble, you fugitives from the nations.Ignorant are those who carry about idols of wood, who pray to gods that cannot save.21 Declare what is to be, present it— let them take counsel together. Who foretold this long ago, who declared it from the distant past? Was it not I, the LORD ? And there is no God apart from me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none but me. Is 45: 2-22

"Am I a God that has lied? From the east to the west. From the north and to the south; everywhere that I look I see people who are eager to hear from Me. And yet I see these same people seeking answers apart from Me. You seek the tarot cards. You look to the stars. You delve into the secret arts. Do you not know that I created the universe? Do you not know that I hold the answers? And yet, there is a place where the sun does not shine. There is a place where the tormenters lie. There is a place hidden from man where the enemy of his soul seeks allegiance from him. Do not listen to his pleas. Do not partake of the food that he offers. Eat only that which is given to you from above. For it will sustain you. Many try to find Me from other men. They go to the great apostles and prophets of this hour and they think that they will find Me there. I tell you that you must seek Me first. Then and only then, will you find the answers that you seek. "

10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in [a] the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. Deuteronomy 18:10-12

"I tell you that I am tired of the many people who are looking for answers in this hour apart from Me. Many are looking for the answers to these questions from psychics and other sources. Some Christians even call themselves psychics. Some even think that a prophet is a psychic. These philosophies and ideas have infiltrated the church. These delusions are the subtle work of the enemy. They call black white and white black. Is it not surprising because satan would come as an angel of light. He would masquerade himself in the form of these things. It is how he is attempting to discredit the things of God. Do not mix the things of the world with the things of God. Do not look for answers apart from Me. Do not read the cards from them. Do not seek answers from the dead. Do not delve into the secret practices. Do not go beyond the written page; for if you do you will find a dark corner of your soul. Once you go down this road it is very hard to turn back. Remember that even Saul went to the Witch at Endor. He contacted my servant Samuel who had been resting from the toils of this earth. He did not find what he was looking for. But look to Me and you find all the answers that you need."

20 Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in thepublic squares;21 at the head of the noisy streets she cries out, inthe gateways of the city she makes her speech: Proverbs 1

30 Then I was the craftsman at his side. I was filled with delight dayafter day,rejoicing always in his presence, Proverbs 8:30

"Does not wisdom shout itself out among the streets? It says to thosewho are simple, 'Come here and buy gold and silver.' I will offer youprecious jewels. To those who come to Me, I offer my resources. Wholacks "good sense" and insight? I will give you a treasury. Dig deepand you will find Me. By Me kings have ruled; by Me a man will chooselife over death. By Me, you will avoid evil. I was there at thefoundation of the earth. I was there as a workman. Embrace my wordsand I will embrace you. Then you will be saved from the day ofcalamity. Then your steps will be ordered by Me. Then you will enjoya long life. "

"My people, you will need wisdom for the days ahead. You will needwisdom for the many plans that you will make. "

17 The highway of the upright avoids evil; he who guards his way guards his life.18 Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.19 Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud. Proverbs 16:17-19

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a picture of a peacock. It was spreading its wings and seemed to be very proud of itself. It turned from side-to-side so that one could see its plumage. Then as it continued to turn, it changed, and what was a beautiful looking peacock now had turned into a vulture which was very ugly in appearance.)

"My people, this is the way some of the great ministries of this age see themselves. They are very proud of their accomplishments. They think it is beautiful what they have done. However, they do not know that pride goes before a fall. Ultimately, their appearance is like a vulture to Me. They are ugly on the inside because they need recognition. They have preyed upon the people for the building up of their own kingdom. They will remain in this appearance to Me unless they change their motives. "

"There are new things forthcoming on the horizon. There are new thingscoming. What are the new things, you may ask? To those who have beengiven, much more will be given. To those who believe, I will impartmore visions of my glory. Words of wisdom will flow from your lips. Words of knowledge will be imparted. Discerning of spirits will rundeeper. Prophetic words will take on more of the characteristics offoretelling. For I tell you, the enemy is on the rise. He is going toand fro upon the earth to see who he can ensnare. He will see who hecan ensnare and trip up. But you will see into the enemy's camp. Infact, you will lay siege to the enemy's camp. It will be destroyed andhe will run and try to find another. It is a time of new dimensions. It is a time of new beginnings. It is a time of new impartations. Itis a time for these things to be multiplied into your lives. For thecurtain will be rent, and everything will be shown. The stage is beingset. The characters are ready for the final act to be done. "

33"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. Inthis world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome theworld." John 16: 33

"Be of good cheer, my people, for I have overcome the world. When thetrials come and seem to overwhelm you, I am there to rescue you. I AMjust a heartbeat away. I AM just a whisper away. So when thefloodgates get released upon your life, don't despair but reach outyour hand to Me and I will hear your plea.

What seems to be an extraordinary problem is actually much smallerthan you may think. So greet these problems, not with despair, butknow that they are an avenue to Me. Do you not know that these thingscome into the lives of everyone? Do you not know that the rain fallson the just and the unjust? Some trials come just because you live ina fallen world, and then others come that you may be perfectedthrough them. In the life of a righteous man he may have many trials,but I will deliver him out of all of them.

These are days that are hastening towards the "end of days." Therewill be great upheavals both in the natural and in the spiritual. Tobe made ready for these things there are a series of trials that Iwill bring my saints through, and then after words you will be giventhe peaceful fruit of endurance so that you will see your way throughit."

4 then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not take warning and the sword comes and takes his life, his blood will be on his own head. Ezekiel 33: 4

"The ancient battlements are coming up from the ground. A siege is coming upon the land--A siege from foreign soil. Ring the bells and let the people be ready. For the land will be held in the balance."

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a scene which He has shown me before. On the midst of a landscape I saw a series of tanks moving on a road. As they came, their artillery in the cockpits of each of the tanks would move from side to side surveying the landscape and area before them. Then a blast would come forth from the tanks and would set afire the ground before them. I watched from my viewing point which was now from the side. Then a series of tanks were strung out one-by-one into the distance. However, I noticed that there seemed to be something that carried these tanks across the land. At first I looked and the tanks went up and down over steep hills and then down again quickly, but the then the steep hills became something else. They now resembled a large serpentine shape. The snake-like figure carried the tanks off into the distance. From below I noticed men with bows and arrows and they were attempting to shoot the tanks with their arrows. They shot with flames but to no avail. The vision then faded...)

"These tanks come from a foreign land. They will come upon the landscape of your land. In the not-so-distant future the events of these things will play out. For within a few years the coastlines of your land will have been touched by foreign hands. The bells will have rung, but they will have rung too late. "

(The spirit of the Lord now showed me an animal of some form. It looked very much like an ostrich with its long neck and legs. The neck of the creature was buried totally in the ground. I saw a horse as well and it was grazing beside a river. Then I looked to the sky above and it was split in half. Have of it was dark and foreboding and the other half was bright and sunny. Then I heard a voice say, 'Look, everything is bright and sunny.' Then I saw the Statue of Liberty split in half and fall to the ground.)

"My people, to most of you, you do not see the danger ahead. The skies appear to be bright and sunny. But to those who can see it has a dark overcast. Many of the heads of the people are buried in the sand like ostriches. Are you oblivious to the things that are coming? Be not like the ostrich but have the eyes of the eagle. "
