The Song of the Vineyard1
I will sing for the one I love a song about his vineyard: My loved onehad a vineyard on a fertile hillside. 2 He dug it up and cleared it ofstones and planted it with the choicest vines. He built a watchtowerin it and cut out a winepress as well. Then he looked for a crop ofgood grapes, but it yielded only bad fruit.3 "Now you dwellers inJerusalem and men of Judah, judge between me and my vineyard.4 Whatmore could have been done for my vineyard than I have done for it?When I looked for good grapes, why did it yield only bad? Isaiah 5

"The time is ripe for all of my body to come into their fullness. Foras the Great Vinedresser I have been tending my garden. There havebeen all types of fruits and vegetables that have been growing there.Some are ripe and I have beheld their sweetness. But some have becomebitter to the taste. I looked for sweet-yielding grapes, and instead,I found rottenness. I planted tall-yielding corn but the enemy came inand ravaged it. My garden was to produce a crop a hundredfold. Butinstead, it has not reproduced but has remained alone. The seed inyour crops was to be carried unto other plants, but instead the birdsof the air came to destroy it.

Remain in the soil that I have planted you in. Don't seek to beremoved into another place. For the soil has all the nutrients thatyou need. Another place will only change the character of yourplants. Where I have planted you, you are to stay. You are my gardenand I long to delight in you. "

10The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. Matt. 3:10

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a scene of a man using an ax and he was cutting at the base of the trees to cut them down.)

"The ax is laid to the trees. Already I am exposing the hearts of men's intentions. For many have gone about their business. For the root is diseased and there is no life in it. How can a tree grow tall if it is in this condition? Many in this world, and even in the church, are about the business of making their lives "look good." But at the basis of your lives, there is disease. Let me be the great physician who works on these parts. For your lives are not to just be a show, but you are to emulate me. "

"I tell you that a forest is made up of all types of trees. Some have grown to a great height. Some have bowers and great limbs for the birds to live upon. Some like the great willows, have their roots going into the water. Still others are like the acacias of the desert, and they receive very little rain, but they are fed from heaven above. But there are still some in a forest that have become sickly. They have not found the stream. I have made you to be unique in your own way; just like the trees of a forest."

11 Now the earth was corrupt in God's sight and was full of violence. 12 God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. 13 So God said to Noah, "I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. 14 So make yourself an ark of cypress [c] wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. Gen. 6

"Now is the acceptable time to come to me. Now is the day of salvation. For do not wait to come unto me.For just like Noah was when he built the ark; many people laughed at him. They didn't think that the earthwould have rain for forty days and forty nights. They didn't think that their world would come unto destruction.But I have warned you many times concerning the days that you are living in. I have warned you manytimes through many servants of mine that the hour is late. Indeed, the hour is very late. And so, I wouldask you, to come into the ark with me.

It is not the ark as it was built of old, but it is my ark. Come into the safety of my wings. They willspread forth around you. They will encompass you. But many would rather trust to the comfort of theirown devices in this hour. They have their own philosophies. They have their psychics. I tell you that thisworld as you know it will be changed. For my judgment is about to fall. For wickedness has becomeas it were before. It has reached unto the throne of my father.

So, I can't let this continue. With judgment comes mercy. So even though judgment will fall, I have providedmy ark of safety. "

11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return tome empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purposefor which I sent it. Isaiah 55

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a picture of the Bible. It wasopened up and I was looking at two pages within the book. Then thebook took on the image of feathers and blossoms within the pages.Alongside the book there were two huge wings that took flight andcarried the Bible with it in the air.)

The spirit of the Lord then said:

"I have said that my word would not return unto me void, but that itwould accomplish that which I had sent it out to do. No matter whathappens in this earth, my word will accomplish what I have sent it outto do. But when my servants take a hold of my word, then it speedilyis sent out unto the four corners of the earth. For then it takesroot in its hearers. It establishes them. It gives them sustenance.For you see my word is alive. It is a creative force. By it I createdthe heavens and the earth. I spoke everything into existence. Andso you see, my word is not just letters written down on a page. It ismeat and bones. It is a life-giving stream. It is light unto a darkworld. And when you partake of my word, then that same creative forcewill reside within you. It will do that which I proposed that itwould do, unto all that would receive my word. It will deliver youfrom the snare of the evil one. It will unchain the prisoner. And itwill be your daily bread.

Eat and drink of my word. Not just my logos word, but my rhema wordas well. For the time will come when men will not put up with sounddoctrine. For they will be carried away by every wind of doctrine.Not that they would follow a given doctrine of a given church, butthat they would follow the teachings which are plainly written down inmy word. For these things indeed, will give meat unto your bones, andthey will bolster up your faith in the days that you are living in.So, eat and drink of my word. Do not just eat and drink of my bodyand blood, but partake of my word. Then you will be fed by the treeof life which has given forth its leaves in its season."

" 'In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Acts 2:17

"This is a season for waiting for the fulfillment of many dreams in your lives. "

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a picture of eggs that were ready to hatch. Some had crackedopen and the young birds had suddenly flown right out of the eggs that they were in. I watched as others were still lying dormant and a hand came and picked them up and placed them in a sack and these were taken somewhere else for later.)

"I tell you that many of these eggs have hatched prematurely. Many have tried to begin to create their dreams without the full gestation period being allowed to go through its process. I tell you that I watch over your dreams. I want them to be fulfilled in your lives, but you must let me handle the affairs. For I know when the time is right. Don't let your impatience cause these things to occur too soon. "

Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and billows have gone over me. The LORD will command His love in the daytime, And in the night His song shall be with me— A prayer to the God of my life. (Psalm 42:7-8)

"Be still and know that I am God. The waters have risen to a certain height. The waters have risen to a certain height in the lives of my people. They have risen to a certain height to work out the details of your lives. The waters, strong as they are, and seemingly something that is tumultuous, are actually agents of change. For I am asking many of you to not remain in the same state that you have been in. For deep calls unto deep. If you want to know more of me, then you need to let the waters rise unto your lives. Consider how the waves of the ocean lap against the shoreline. So it is with my spirit. For it rolls in and then it recedes back. For even in the undercurrent I will not let you drown. I am with you even when the waves roll over your heads. I will not let the circumstances of this life overtake you. Remain with me and the calm of the storm will come. "

11The greatest among you will be your servant. Matt. 23:11

That night the word of the LORD came to Nathan, saying: "Go and tell my servant David, 'This is what the LORD says: Are you the one to build me a house to dwell in? 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. 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

"The people in America have experienced freedom for a long time, but I tell you thatfreedom has been paid for with a cost. For your freedom to worship me in spirit andin truth is something that you are granted. But some have used their freedom to extortothers. I have said that those who would want to be great among you must be theservants of all. But many among you are not servants. I see this in many of yourchurches and organizations. For oftentimes, the point-man in a church is soaccustomed to being in charge that he lords it over his subjects. He is like a kingin his own kingdom. I tell you that I am to be your only king in your churches.You stand behind your pulpits and you proclaim the truth to all. It is only by myhand that you stand or fall. The time will come when I will strip away your pulpits andyou will be begging for bread in a dry land. For my truth will only be proclaimed frommy true prophets. For many of them do not desire a pulpit. They only speak whatI give to them. I had said to my servant David that I will not be confined to a building.My church is my body. I am the only head of my church."

2in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. Eph. 2:2

"Be on guard against wickedness in high places. For the prince of the power of the air is present around you.

Listen to me my prophets:

There is a strong wind blowing. It blows from the north. For it is a strong but subtle wind.It comes as something disguised in the air. It comes as a form of illumination,. It comes as a form of revelation. It is an enticement to follow after another spirit. Do not follow after it. For it would lure you away from. me. The enemy hates the prophetic, and he would do anything in his power to lure you away form me. Do not listen to every wind of the spirit that you hear. It is good to be sensitive but do not let your sensitivity drive you away. You have a mission. It is time to return back to basics. It is time to reexamine the foundation.Are there cracks or fissures to be found there? If so, how can you repair them? How can you stand upon the wall if your foundation is cracking? Examine these things in your lives; then I will repair the holes. Otherwise, the enemy will creep in. "

Ecclesiastes 3

A Time for Everything

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.

(The need for balance in one's life is something that we all need to pursue and to find in our lives. We need to be able to balance our spiritual life with our need to be with our families. We need to balance our work and what we do for a living with our spiritual life as well. Below is a short word that speaks about the need for balance and also for having our feet firmly planted on the ground. We've perhaps heard the old saying that says, "He's no earthly good because he's so heavenly minded." Now, to be heavenly minded is a good thing, but when our heads are in the clouds and we can't perform our duties at home and at work, then we're lacking something. Ecclesiastes 3:1-9 says that there is a time for everything.)

"Keep your head involved in spiritual things but keep your feet firmly planted on the ground, for this is the problem with many Christians. They may have their ear tuned to the spirit, but then they may have no earthly good. For what good is it if your thoughts and your actions have no practical use for today? For there is a need for balance. There needs to be a balance between the Holy Spirit and reading my written word. There are some that ignore the voice of the spirit, and they think that all they need is my written word. But then there are others that know my voice and they can discern it, and they spend all their time doing this. I tell you that they are off-balance as well."

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a balancing beam. On one side there was a bible that was set upon it. On the other side was a dove which would symbolize the Holy Spirit, but now it was a flame like there were flames of fire coming up from the dove. The balancing beam would go from side to side and then the weight was evenly distributed between the two sides as each of these things were held in the balance.)

Below is prophetic message from 1993 which speaks about the need for balance. This word concerns balancing the logos word with the rhema word, because we need both. It's easy to focus just upon reading the Bible and not listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit as He speaks to us. On the other hand, one can get off-balance by just focusing on the Holy Spirit and not reading the written word.


"Learn to balance the word of the Spirit with the written word. For when you can do this you are on your way to maturity, for both are needed. The revealed word that is spoken, is said out of an understanding of my written word. As a tent has stakes in it which represents my written word; it anchors the tent and holds it in place.But what would the tent be holding up? It takes on the shape and contour that I would embody unto it. So, in the same way, the voice of the spirit is represented in this way. Let the tent rise to its full potential in me.Let its pitch and its sides fall where I want it to. And know that you are all tents of mine, would say the Lord. You are all being perfectly joined together in me.For the ministry of teaching my word, and the spoken word, are both needed. And so, this tent is the tent that must be strong. Its stakes must go down into the very ground on the foundation of my written word.But let the breeze blow, and let it blow through the fabric of this tent. Let it seep in through every crevice and stitching of the fabric of my Holy Spirit. For it is woven by my hands; I am the master craftsman; I hold the tent by my son, Jesus Christ. He holds the very fabric together, and by his stripes, nothing will cause this tent to fall.

Thus would say the spirit of the Lord, the one who has made every tent for its purpose."

24The disciples went and woke him, saying, "Master, Master, we're going to drown!"He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm. 25"Where is your faith?" he asked his disciples. In fear and amazement they asked one another, "Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him." Luke 8

"Over the hills and across the land, I am surveying my people's hearts in this hour. For many have been tossed to and fro like ships on a stormy sea. But the waters will calm down soon. The seas are at my command. The disciples sat in the boat with me long ago. They were fearful for their lives; but I remained calm and I kept the storm at bay. I am with you in the boat at this hour. Everything is at my command. There isn't a storm in your life that I'm not aware of. This life will have many storms in it; but who has created the storms? Does not good and bad come into your lives? Have I not said that all things work together for your good? But they only work together for your good if you let me work with you. I have also said that these storms are preparing you for what lies ahead. How can you handle the tsunamis if you can't ride the waves that are now? I created the waves and all that is in the earth. If I created them can I not also cause them to subside? Trust me through all the storms in your lives. Then I will bring you to safe harbor in me."

12"I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. John 16:12-14

"I am the spirit of truth. I speak to all who would come and would listen to me.

(The Lord showed me a coin that was connected to a long chain. This coin kept movingback and forth in front of me like someone would use to hypnotize someone. Thiscontinued for some time.)

I tell you that another spirit has been lulling my people to sleep. This spirit has shownsome that the church is well. It has shown that the people are growing, and that a newkingdom will be established. It has shown them that everything will be fine in the yearsthat are to come. But I tell you that this spirit is wrong. For the tides of change andtribulation will cause many to leave the church. But many will persevere and theywill find their home with me. Some will be sent to the desert for a while. The time of the great evangelists will have reached its peak. Those who have sought gain through their television programs will be forced to quit. For they sought a different spirit. But the time of the Elijahs is coming. Those who speak my truth will have mouths that will not be stopped. "

10 I have seen the burden God has laid on men. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. 12 I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. Ecclesiastes 3:10-12

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a scene of someone who held a telescope and he was holding it up to his eyes to look into it. When I looked with my eyes the landscape looked barren with dead trees and various debris in it. But when I held the telescope up to my eyes the scene changed and everything looked beautiful and lush in it. I saw a young girl riding on a horse and a scene of people enjoying their time together as a family. There was a meadow with flowers in it. )

"Look hard and deep out across the landscape. This scene means that most people are looking at the world events around them. They don't take the time to enjoy the simple things in life. I have given you a whole garden to enjoy. Don't look at the situation, but gaze on it through my eyes. Most people see trouble as trouble, but there is a blessing to be found in every situation. To be certain, there are more difficult days ahead, but I want you to look at the simple and beautiful things that I've put in your path also. I want my people to enjoy their lives. To be certain, there are many evil things in the world, but there are also many beautiful things as well. Take the time to enjoy them. Slow down and take one day at a time. "

10 As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, 11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. Isaiah 55

"Lift up your eyes and look to the hills, says the Lord. Your help comes from me. For I am the maker of heaven and earth. A soft breeze blows upon the earth. "

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a picture of a man who had a bow strung back and he shot an arrow high into the air. After the arrow was released, it formed a scroll and this scroll had areas of fire upon it on the edges. The scroll unfurled further and further, and was laid upon the ground.)

"There is a breeze that will allow my messages to be sent out. In this hour I am sending my messengers out unto the four corners of the earth. They will be sent out by my hand. My word will not return unto me void, but it will accomplish that which I sent it out to do."

I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, butwhat I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agreethat the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who doit, but it is sin living in me. 18 I know that nothing good lives inme, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what isgood, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For what I do is not the good Iwant 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, butit is sin living in me that does it. Romans 7

5 Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds seton what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with theSpirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6 The mind ofsinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life andpeace; 7 the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit toGod’s law, nor can it do so. 8 Those controlled by the sinful naturecannot please God. Romans 8

“Be on your guard against wickedness in high places. For the spiritof the anti Christ is at work in the world around you. For there arespirits at work who have been sent out to deceive. For from his darkthrone in caverns hidden, the enemy himself waits. He knows that thehour is late. He has made his plans. For it is not just the worldthat he awaits to rule, but he would deceive many through the thoughtsof their minds. For the mind is the center of all activity. If themind could be controlled then he could rule the world. But I haveasked you to believe with your heart. For with the heart manbelieves, but then through belief and then with meditating upon myword, the mind is transformed.

If one could take every thought into captivity, then their mind wouldbecome a fertile field. But because the heart is corrupted, the mindhas had to deal with two forces. For as Paul has said, ‘The good thatI ought to do, I do not do; but praise be to Jesus who has deliveredme from my sinful nature. ‘

I would have vessels that have been fashioned after the work of myhands, but many have gone on to finish the work for me. I am thepotter and you are the clay. How can I finish the work in you if youpretend to be the potter?

I have told you that the days are hastening towards my soon return. Itell you that indeed they are. Beware of who sits upon the throne.For the Vatican has someone who is not of me. Beware of the traditionof men. For my church was to be built upon the rock of Peter, andthat rock is faith. Everything else is the tradition of men. Trueleadership is not a thing that is meant to be of great power; and thiskind of power can corrupt. For this is how satan fell. And this iswhere it is meant that the meek shall inherit the earth. It is notthat they would inherit the wealth and the power of this world, butthat they would look to the world beyond. Strive to be like me. Don’tlook to the world for your standards. As far as it is possible withyou, live at peace with all men. “

14 The cowering prisoners will soon be set free; they will not die intheir dungeon, nor will they lack bread. Isaiah 51:14

"I have called my people to be free, but many of them are still heldin bondage by many things. They have bondages over things of theirpast. They are held in bondage over past sins. They seek to bedelivered but they never go to the root of the problem. It's likegoing into the hospital and just taking a pill instead of havingsurgery. This is the way that the world deals with things. But yousee, I want my people to be free in me. Give me your chains andeverything that has held you back. Come out of your hiding. Come tome as a little child and I will heal those things in you. Then youwill be released and free to worship me in spirit and in truth. "

9Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours of daylight? A man whowalks by day will not stumble, for he sees by this world's light. 10Itis when he walks by night that he stumbles, for he has no light." John11
"In the light of day you can see my work done in my people. In thelight is where my word is being made manifest. But the light revealsany darkness that is in anyone. When it is day it is good to work,but the days are rushing forward to when night will fill the sky. Forthis world as you know it is going to be thrown into chaos. Judgmentis coming and it is going to be poured out upon the people of thisworld."

Do the work that I've called each of you to do. Many of my people areworking in the shadows of the day.

(The Lord showed me a building and I noticed that shadows had fallenfrom where the light had struck, thus causing shadows to fall on theground. In this area of the shadows, there were people.)

There is a cast light that falls and many of my people have chosen tobe here. The reason that you are here is because you have hiddenyourself from me. Come to the light and be with me forever there. "

1"At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins whotook their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2Five of themwere foolish and five were wise. 3The foolish ones took their lampsbut did not take any oil with them. Matthew 25:1-3

"The hour is growing late. Have your lamps been trimmed with oil?Remember the story of the five wise and the five foolish virgins.For some of them were shut out, and they weren't allowed to go intothe marriage feast. So, will you be ready when the time has come?Will you have purchased the oil that is needed? Will you have eyes tosee and ears to hear? For the oil enriches and it enlightens. Itprepares and it sustains. Without the oil you are left to a worldwithout these things. I don't want my own to be left out in the worldin the dark. The oil is needed for the hour in which you are living.The oil comes from my throne, and it will be spread forth to all whoask for it. You cannot find this oil from anywhere on this earth.You cannot purchase it or buy it at a store. It is given withoutcost. It will never run out. You cannot hoard it as they tried to dowith the manna in the wilderness. Take my oil and use it wisely inthis hour."

For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, jointsand marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.Hebrews 4:12

"These are definitely the last days; and I tell you that you standupon the brink of the events of the days that I have outlined in my word. I tell youthat the false prophet is rising. He is rising in the east. He hasbeen hidden, but he will emerge upon the scene. I tell you that thisis a time, unlike no other, when discernment is needed. For you shallneed it. You shall need it to discern the thoughts and intentions ofthe heart. The heart can be swayed by many things. But be true to yourcalling. Know that through this discernment, you will be able to seeinto the enemy's camp. "

11 A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver. Prov. 25:11

6 Now, brothers, if I come to you and speak in tongues, what good willI be to you, unless I bring you some revelation or knowledge orprophecy or word of instruction? 7 Even in the case of lifelessthings that make sounds, such as the flute or harp, how will anyoneknow what tune is being played unless there is a distinction in thenotes? 8 Again, if the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who willget ready for battle? 9 So it is with you. Unless you speakintelligible words with your tongue, how will anyone know what you aresaying? You will just be speaking into the air. 10 Undoubtedly thereare all sorts of languages in the world, yet none of them is withoutmeaning. 11 If then I do not grasp the meaning of what someone issaying, I am a foreigner to the speaker, and he is a foreigner to me.ICor. 14

"Have the counselors and those who speak rightly to men, given badcounsel lately? Have some spoken oftheir own accord, and not mine? To give a word and to give it well,is something to be valued.For it is like apples of gold in settings of silver. But it is notright to just say beautiful things. Forbeautiful things must have weight. Wisdom must be practical. It musthave purpose. For whatgood is something said if it is not intelligible? Even animals andnature have a sound that they makewith each other. People need a distinct sound to the trumpet. Foreven in a church setting, if onehas a word or a message, it needs to be understood by all. It is truethat I speak in allegorical waysat times. It is true that I have spoken in parables, but it is alsotrue that I speak plainly as well.For even a revelation or an insight must not be so deep or hidden thatthose who hear it must be ableto understand it. I have said that you must become like children toenter the kingdom of God.For the great debater of this age may have great things to say, butare they practical and do they giveyou purpose in life? Wisdom is to be valued more than silver orgold. For with it men have saveda city. They have saved the lives of many. They have given directionto others as well. Wisdomis one of my pillars in my temple. It has been my work man. Whenwords are given from me, makecertain that they are understood by all. "

9 What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. 10 Is there anything of which one can say, "Look! This is something new"? It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time. Ecclesiastes 1:9-10

See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you." Isaiah 42:9

"Many people say that there is nothing new under the sun. They say that everything that has happened will happen again. But I am new every morning. There is a new day. There is a day unlike any other. My word says that, 'Behold there is a new thing, do you not see it?' What can you see in this day that is new before you? What hidden surprises does it have? I can bring new people into your life. I can show you things that I have not shown you before. There are so many new things upon this earth that many have not seen before.There are new people to minister unto. There are new things to learn. There are new things to ponder andto consider. Nothing that is said can ever be said again in the same way under the same context again.So, consider everything new this day. Then it will take on a new color to you; and you may be surprised inwhat you see this day."

10 The LORD came and stood there, calling as at the other times, "Samuel! Samuel!" Then Samuel said, "Speak, for your servant is listening."1 Samuel 3:10

A prophet does not always speak but he listens. For without listening how can he know what to speak? There are periods of time when I will ask you to cease from talking. For the perfecting of the message will become more excellent when you sit at my feet and wait. For is not the world and the seasons made up upon waiting? There is a time to plant and to wait for the seed to germinate. Then it sits in the ground and then in time gives rise to the plant. So it is with the words that I give unto my prophets. You must take time to listen. You must leave the words behind. It is all about timing. For is not timing important in the world? You cannot get on a train until it arrives at the station. A student cannot leave the classroom until the bell has rung. But when it is time to speak then you will know; and let not the fire within you prevent you from speaking.

Be anxious for nothing. The world races at a fast pace. Everyone is in a hurry to get somewhere. Be not in a hurry to give what I have given you unto the people. Soak in the word. Let it permeate you. Then my word will become part of you."

12The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its partsare many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. 13For we were all baptized by[c] one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 14Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. 15Ifthe foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to thebody," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. 16Andif the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to thebody," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. 1 Corinthians 12:12-16
"From out of the wilderness I am sending my warriors in this hour. I amequipping them to go about my business. They have been long inpreparing for these things. They are going forth with the tools that Ihave given them. But you see, my army is made up of different types ofwarriors. For there are my minstrels, those who sing forth theirpraises to me. There are my prayer warriors who intercede on behalf ofthe saints. There are my pastors and teachers. There are my workers ofmiracles. There are those who give without thinking of anything inreturn. There are many who sit without knowing what they are to do. There are many who do not know what their calling is. There are thosewho give forth words of wisdom and knowledge, and they aid the peoplein this way. There are finally those who are at the foundation of myarmy. For they stand forth at their own place in my army. Withoutthem the army would not know where to go. They have prepared my peoplefor this final hour. They speak my words unto the people. They aremaster builders. They are often not received. These are my prophetsand apostles. None is more important than any single one. None standsalone. All are important. Without one the army could falter. My armymust be united. It must be equipped and ready for what is coming. "

11I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rideris called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. 12Hiseyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has aname written on him that no one knows but he himself. Revelation 19:11-12

1But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2Peoplewill be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud,abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,

2 Timothy 3:1-3 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 3:3-4

"I have reached out to a people. I have called to them. I have sent my word out unto the far reaches of the earth. It has gone out and it has not returned back to me void. Many will see but few will understand. Very few will understand that my people are being raised up for my purposes at this time. Many things will be done through my hand in this hour.

In spite of a world economy that is teetering on its edge, there are many great things that I can do for you in this hour. Many have tasted the bread of affliction. Many have suffered through things that you do not understand. But my spirit can turn all of these things into gold. For great things are yet to come. There are things on the horizon that few have foreseen. The plan of the ages is soon to come to its final fruition.

One season becomes another, but many think that the earth is going on as it always has. For they say in their heart, 'Where is the promise of the Messiah who is yet to come?' I tell you that I am coming back at a precise time in history. As the lightning travels across the sky, and it goes quickly from east to west, so will my return be marked in the same way. But many claiming to be me will come upon the scene. Indeed, many will masquerade themselves as me. But you will know them by their fruits. For they will disguise themselves as ministers of righteousness, but righteousness and truth is far from them.

Children will become more and more disobedient to their parents. The threat of violence in the streets will increase. Governments will topple and new ones will emerge. And then when it seems that it could not get worse, one will emerge who will claim to bring about peace to the world, but peace is far from his heart. For his eye is set upon world dominion. At this time many will be led into captivity by his charm. But my own will see the falsehood that is within him. They will not be led astray by his charms. When all of this comes to completion, then you will see the sign of my horse and rider returning to the scene. For the rider who rides upon the white horse will do battle and will utterly destroy the work of the man of perdition. So will end the days. So will wrap up the events of this last hour. So will then everlasting peace finally come to a troubled world. The wolf will lay down with the lamb. Sorrow and the tears of this life will have ended. My kingdom will be an everlasting one. So dwell on these things that are at the end of your journey. For the celebration will far exceed the trials and tribulations of this age. My promises are true. Thus would end, would say the spirit of the Lord."
