20If the Lord had not cut short those days, no one would survive. But for the sake of the elect, whom he has chosen, he has shortened them. Mark 13:20

"This is the time for many of the saints to arise in their callings. For I tell you that the time is short. There is time for a few more things upon this earth. Whence will the end of time come; many wonder and think? I tell you that I have a time table laid out. What will become of my people in the midst of the devastation that is to come? What will become of your loved ones? These questions and more plague your hearts and minds. I tell you that my plan that is to bring forth judgment is also one that will protect my people. For surely, my people will be protected under my wings. Have I not said that I would cut the time short for my people? Have I not said that I would provide a way out? Is it necessarily a rapture event that would occur? Many controversies have occurred with pitting one scripture against another. The only one that you really need to know is that I will provide a way out. So when you consider the judgments that are to come, know in your heart-of-hearts that I will take care of you. Set these things as a seal upon your hearts. Refrain from speculating about dates and times. For they only breed endless debates. Know that I will bring you safely through the judgments that are to come."

12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jer. 29

"From the beginning of time until the present, I have wanted to have a relationship with mankind. I have established a place in his heart where he can come to Me, but many have decided to neglect this thing and this purpose. But now, in these last days, it is so crucial to spend time with Me. It becomes of utmost importance. Without this mankind will be lost in the maze of life. I tell you that you will stumble and fall without Me. You will seek answers but there will be none to be found. But if you seek Me, then surely you will find Me; and then when you find Me I will pour forth my spirit upon you.

I have created you with this desire to find Me. Deep within the recesses of your heart I have hollowed it out. There you will find that place. There is where the decisions of this life are to be made. This place is a sanctuary. In this place is life and the pursuit of this life are to be found the answers in Me."

11 For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations. Isaiah 61

"This is the day that I hath made. Rejoice in it. When the skies are gray, rejoice. When you are unhappy, rejoice. When the world around you is falling apart, rejoice. In plenty and in loss, rejoice.

There are very difficult days ahead. They will be days unlike any that have been on earth. Will you be prepared for them? If you learn how to adjust to your circumstances now, then when the winds blow with hurricane force you will be ready.

A new hour and a new day is coming. A new day is dawning for those who have put their faith in Me. For I will work in your lives in miraculous ways. I will bring to completion the work that is in you.

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a vision of a plot of ground. It was evening and there the gardener held up a lamp that shed light on the ground below. In several rows there were plants that were all green and were in various stages of growth. He was bent over inspecting the plants to see how they were doing. My eye was directed to one of the plants in the front. I then saw leaves begin where before there were none. They were silvery in appearance in the moonlight. The stem and leaves shot up higher and higher into the air. Then the vision faded...)

But I also tell you that this is a time when there will be friction within the body of Christ. For some will see the new growth in others and will be jealous. The enemy will attempt to separate some within the body of Christ. Each person should watch to their own lives and trust the growth process that the Lord is doing. "

4Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword.5When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come!" I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. 6Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, "A quart[a] of wheat for a day's wages,[b] and three quarts of barley for a day's wages,[c] and do not damage the oil and the wine!" Rev. 6:4-6

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a scene of a carousel of horses. They were decorated as any typical carousel would normally be. I watched as the horses on the carousel continued to go around and around in front of me. Then suddenly one horse came off from the carousel. It was firey at first like it was a blaze of fire and red, but then as the fire left its body, it became black in color. As it came off from the carousel, it sped across the land in front of me. It had armor on it as if it were ready for battle. A man dressed in black was riding on it who looked like a medieval knight.)

"The carousel means that time is continuing to move around and around. The horse that suddenly appeared out of the midst of the carousel has been war, but the "scales of injustice" is also seen in the black horse. I tell you that war will intensify throughout the globe. War will continue but poverty will destroy many. I tell you that this war will be a war that will destroy many. It will usher in the time of the great deceiver. As new polices are made within your government the hedge of protection will be lifted. Who will be a man of peace within the time of this war? Who is it that promises many things and yet delivers fear? Watch as the course of the next few years unfolds. Watch as the color of the landscape in Washington changes."

1 Wisdom has built her house; she has hewn out its seven pillars.2 She has prepared her meat and mixed her wine; she has also set her table.3 She has sent out her maids, and she calls from the highest point of the city. Proverbs 9:1-3

"The time is coming when all who would do service to Me would prepare themselves for the days ahead. What would you do to prepare yourselves? What would you have with you? I tell you, that there are difficult days ahead. I tell you that surely your defenses will not be strong enough to defend yourselves against the enemy. Surely, the days that lie stretched out upon the horizon are days that many have wondered about. Many wonder: 'Will we be saved from the upcoming calamity that is coming upon the earth?' Will not the rocks and trees themselves save us from these things? Surely, nature provides a place of safety for some. But are not my wings, my pinions, a place of safety for all? Some have been commissioned by Me to stock pile food and supplies. Some have prepared to have cities of refuge. Still others decide that I alone will take care of them. The point is that when you know that a storm is coming you then go inside your shelter and find the safest place in the house. If a tornado is outside you don't stand by the window. If a hurricane is coming you don't stand on the beach looking at it as it comes in. You first find a place of safety. What will be the outcome? Why are still so many people not aware of these things that are coming? You alone must answer these things. "

17pray continually; 18give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5:17-19

"Now is the time in this season to give thanks to Me. For when you give thanks you are honoring Me for all I have done in your lives. Even when great trials come, give thanks. When the winds blow, give thanks. For there is always someone who is worse off than you. Who is it that sustains you? Who is it that gives you all good things? For I tell you, in the midst of many troubles, I am he that leads you through them.

It is easy to give thanks when things are going well, but when trouble comes you would be upset. Have I not delivered you from all these things before? Rise above these things. For after every trial, I will bring you to the next level. "

2 But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner's fire or a launderer's soap. 3 He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the LORD will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness,Malachi 3

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.Proverbs 27:17

"Shout to the heavens. Shout to the heavens, would say the Lord. Build-up the ancient ramparts. It is time, says the Lord...It is time for those who have sought Me with their whole heart. It is time for you to come into your full possession. It is time for your gifts to be turned into yet a greater blessing. It is time for you to reap where you have sown.'

( I am seeing a bow and arrows and the arrows are being sharpened and made more perfect. Tools in a carpenter's shop are being used to refine and sculpt and carve.)

"The tools of your trade will be made yet better. Iron sharpens iron. One's man's gift can help shape another's. Use the fire to refine. It is the season for perfecting your gifts in Me, would say the Lord. Let Me refine, mold, and sharpen. Let Me do the work in you that is necessary to bring this to completion. Your gift will be brought before men of renown. "

He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. Daniel 2:21

"I tell you that the trees are bent down. They are bent down for the season that is coming. For I tell you that the season of wind is coming upon the land. Things will blow-in in the spiritual and then they will become manifest in the natural. For new developments will be seen. New developments will be seen as war erupts in other areas of the globe. The earth cries out for relief. The people look out for someone who will deliver them from their ills. Who will arise as a peace maker in these days? There is someone who is hidden behind the scenes. He is the horn that will arise. He is the one who will set himself up on the throne. While the turmoils and the ills of this world go on, he will then suddenly come upon the scene. Do not give-in to his schemes and devices. "

10I rejoice greatly in the Lord that at last you have renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you have been concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. 11I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.

Philippians 4:10-12

"Beware of the words of those who "claim to be prophets," for many would desire to move to that position. But I ask you, 'Do you desire to be trained in the wilderness?' Do you want to be scoffed at? Do you desire to lose your life for Me in order that you might gain it? Do you desire to be labeled as one who is a fanatic or crazy? I tell you, be content in the position that I have called you to. For each of you has a job to do. Each part of the building is important. You are in the place that I have assigned you to."

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a scene of a bird that was flying very rapidly upwards. It was flying at a 90 degree angle and kept flying and flying upwards. Finally it came to a ceiling and had to stop. Then I saw the same bird begin to fly downwards. It was going further and further down into the ocean depths. At this point I then saw hundreds of bubbles, or facet-shaped things that were enclosed. Each of these shapes had inside of them scenes of various people doing things. I realized in my spirit that the meaning behind this was that each of us has an area, a bubble if you will, of influence and sphere that we have been assigned to. We are enclosed within that area and we need not go beyond it. )

25 "I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten—
the great locust and the young locust,
the other locusts and the locust swarm [f]—
my great army that I sent among you. Joel 2:25

"From the rising of the sun to its setting, I AM here watching over this planet. I watch over the affairs of man and I see how his sin will bring about the destruction of the earth. My timetable is laid out. I have set the ball in motion. The dominoes will begin to fall as each event takes place. But even so, I will watch over my own. What the cankerworm and the moth has tried to destroy, I will bring about abundance. I will cause you to be fruitful. I will establish the work of your hands. You will see miracles in your lives. You will watch and wonder as I work in your lives. I tell you that the wicked will not always prosper. His end is soon to happen. An honest man will reap the rewards of his hands. Your hopes and dreams will become realities in your lives. I will do exceedingly more than what you think I can do in your lives. So, set your gaze on what is straight ahead and watch as I work in your lives."

He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. Dan. 2:21,
"It it is a year of political debates. It is a year where many of these things have come to the forefront. It is a year when many of these things have taken precedence. But what will become of the nature of our country? What will the direction be that the new person in office takes it? What will become of America?

What is the direction that she has taken over the last few years? In the fall you will find out and a great change will happen. But I tell you, your borders will remain open. I mean that gaps and holes will be found that will allow terrorists to come in. Pray for your coastlines. For in the following year the breach will begin. "

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."

22We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. 24For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? 25But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. Rom.8

"From the top of the mountain I call down to my people below in the valley. I call to them to prepare themselves. I tell you that it will be a good year, and I also tell you that it will be a devastating year. For again throughout this year there will be natural disasters like never before. For I tell you that the birth pangs of this planet are increasing. The earth is in travail. It is awaiting my return. It is awaiting the sons and daughters of my time to rise up. For the end of all things will soon come to completion. These are the days that many of my servants in the past looked into. I tell you that the enemy has prepared an onslaught against my people. He knows that his time is near, but you will wage a good fight against him. One little word will fell him.

Be careful where your feet take you to in this hour. Be careful who your company is with. Do not adopt the philosophies of this world. But be like him who has hidden himself away in the cleft of the rock. There you will find protection under my wing. There you will be hidden in my glory. There you will rise-up again. As I have said, the days are hastening forward to my soon return. Will you be ready for them? Will your house hold strong when the storms of this life come? "
