1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 ¶ But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep,that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, evenso them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord,that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For theLord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with themin the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

(The spirit of the Lord was showing me a scene of the dead in Christ. I saw various ones being raised up to bewith him, as this is mentioned in the scriptures: I Thess 4:13-17He was standing and was motioning for them to come forth. It was a strange thing to behold. Then right afterthis I saw various boxes, like tombs that were being varnished and brushed. I was reminded about howJesus had said that the Pharisees were like "white-washed tombs.: Then the vision ended.)

"I tell you that the time is coming when I will call forth the dead. They will come forth from their graves and theywill be with me. But there are many now that are "dead" ; for they have no "life" in them in the spirit. They'white-wash' the outer layer of themselves so they would appear to be clean. I tell you, you Pharisees of thisgeneration, you cannot hope to be raised with me. For your stench is buried with you. Let me be the onewho cleans you up, and then you will be raised with me as well."

12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. Rev. 20

"There is nothing in the stars for my people. The stars don't hold the keys to your future. I am the one thatholds the keys to life and death. I know each of my children intimately. Because of this, there is no avenueother than through my spirit, that one can chart their future. Many go to psychics and mediums in thishour. I tell you that they have gone down the wrong road. Even those in the church have sought out theirreadings.

Have I not sent you prophets who know my will? Beyond the veil lies a land that few have ever seen.In this place the psychics and star charters of this age will never venture there. For it is only given to thosewho know me intimately. Only those who have entered in with a pure heart will be able to venture there.There I hold the secrets of life and death. There is the Lamb's book of life. There are the books of deedsthat have ever been written. There is a chamber there where I have stored each of your books. You willsee that your name is written down there. The enemy can not erase it. Each day that you live another pageis rolled back. You cannot know all the pages of your book until you are with me. "

37 They were put to death by stoning;[a] they were sawed in two; they were killed by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, persecuted and mistreated— 38 the world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts and mountains, living in caves and in holes in the ground. Hebrews 11

"Look inward and see what you find this day. Do you see someone who is filled with my spirit, or are you dead? For much of theworld is dead to my spirit, says the Lord. There is none righteous. For everyone has gone their own way. Who is the one wholongs to please me? Who is the one who would forsake their own way? As Jeremiah said, 'All your righteousness is as filthyrags.'

You long to hear beautiful words from the prophets and teachers of this world. You want to be told that things are OK. Then goahead and listen to them and be lulled to sleep; be lulled to sleep by a dream. Do you want "feel good" words, or do you wantwords that speak the truth in love?

Do you think that my prophets of old were always accepted? Were they always warmly welcomed? They were thrown out of town. They were banished. They were rejected. But they were fed by my spirit. They were given bread and water by the streams inthe desert. So again I ask you: 'Do you want to be lulled to sleep by a piper who sings beautiful songs or do you want thetruth spoken from the lips from someone who knows me?

I have warned you about the things that are to come. I have told you about these things in my word. They are clearly writtendown. A wise son prepares for winter, and even the animals in nature know when it is time to prepare for the cold monthsahead. So it is not a matter of being captivated by doom and gloom that one would speak of these things, but rather, itwould be in preparation. It is time to get your house in order. It is time to look in all the hidden areas of your life.It is time to let me clean them out. But it is also time to prepare for the difficulties that lie ahead. It is time to fortify yourwalls. It is time to be prepared for the onslaughts of the enemy. It is time to inspect the walls and see if there are any gapsthere. "

1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. Col. 3:13

31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; Isaiah 40

“There are places where I will take my servants in this hour. There are places where I will take them in the spirit. I will take them where they are above the world’s problems. They will glide on the wings of my spirit. They will be above and beyond the things that are seen. For when you find this place, then you will learn to fly above the world’s problems. There your wings will take on the appearance of my character more.

There is a stream in the desert there, and it finds its way back to my throne. There you will be fed by the river. There you will be nourished and strengthened for the journeys ahead. It is not in your churches that you will find this place. It is not in your seminars or conferences. For I alone will take you there. For the world’s affairs and its leaders will have drifted away. I have a place reserved. Are you ready? For I will call to you when you are ready. For you will be changed. The fire produces refinement in my servants, but this time spent with me in this place will cause you to be illuminated. Just as Moses went up the mountain and beheld the light of my countenance so will this time transform you.

This is my place that I have set aside for you. This is a place where I will draw you nearer to myself. Come and be with me, says the Lord. Come and be transformed. “

28 But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. 29 “Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house.30 “Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. Matt. 12:28-30
"The enemy is trying to capture ground in this hour. He thinks that he has the upper hand, but I tell you that his plans will fail. He is causing some to give into their anger. He whispers to some and tells them lies. "

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a picture of a large muscle man that was inside a jail. He was grabbing the jail bars and was starting to bend them and was trying to get out of the cell that he was in. This continued for some time, but he never managed to break free from his jail cell.)

"I tell you that the strong man has attempted to come out. He has been held back, but he gains ground when you give into the spirit that he is a part of. There are areas that he specializes in; for he preys upon the weaknesses of human flesh. But if you don't give into him, then you are free from his dominion. For he has many forms. There is the strong man of lust. There is the strongman of rage. There is the strongman of envy. There is the strongman of jealousy. There are other forms, and there are other manifestations, but each one preys upon the weakness of the human condition. But I have given you a spirit to overcome these things, but it is wise to know the devices of the enemy.

You can bind him. Remember that what you bind on earth is bound in heaven and what you loose on earth is loosed in heaven. "

10 Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care, 11 trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of the Messiah and the glories that would follow. I Pet. 1:9-11

"These are the days that many of my prophets of old had eagerly looked into. They looked and searched to find the answers that they sought, but they didn't know that it would be in a time like this. For they didn't know that it was far off in the future that they were looking into. But now that time has arrived. Now the glory that I spoke of long ago, the time that they intently looked into, has fallen upon many of you. For you see, my spirit rested "UPON " my prophets, but that same spirit now resides "WITHIN YOU." For you can have the spirit UPON YOU, but also WITHIN YOU. For I had not gone to be with the Father yet. I had not gone to have another counselor be formed within you. For they had the Ark of the Covenant at one time carrying the glory within. But my glory cannot be contained within a box. I cannot be contained in a church. When you seek me there I may be found, and there my glory will be received. "

16 He will bring back many of the people of Israel to the Lord their God. 17 And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous—to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” Luke 1:16-18

/(The Lord showed me a vision of the prophet Elijah and he was sitting in a chariot traveling across the sky. He would lift up the bow in his hands and would shoot a flaming arrow into the sky. He did this again and again. He circled around several times and the chariot and horses sped away.)

"The spirit of Elijah is upon my servants in this hour. They will shoot the arrows of my word and it will hit the mark. For the strength and power of Elijah will come to my servants in this hour. He went to be with me many years ago but his spirit is now upon some of my servants. The enemy will not be able to stand against you. For I have given you of my rod and staff. The strength and power that is upon him will be upon you. For you will go out in my spirit and the fire of Elijah will fall. It will lick up the water of discontent and of complacency. The false prophets and psychics of this hour will be ecstatic, but when they beat their chests and scream, no power will be seen.

The world needs evidence of my spirit and power in this hour. So, my spirit will fall. It will take a hold of my servants. It will smash the idols that have held them in captivity. I will be seen and glorified. The hollowed philosophies of men will be weakened and cast down. The fire will burn away the chaff, but the seeds of this spirit will grow in intensity. "

17 “The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the LORD will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them. 18 I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs. 19 I will put in the desert the cedar and the acacia, the myrtle and the olive. I will set junipers in the wasteland, the fir and the cypress together, Isaiah 41:17-19

(This message began with a vision of a strong river that was winding its way from between two high cliffs above. I saw the raging river as it came tumbling down spreading its foam and energy. The river poured its force and came around a corner in front of me and wound its way in front of me going at full force.)

"My spirit is sending a river through the mountains. It comes from the high cliffs and the mountains above. For it springs forth and you will see it resounding forth from above. My spirit is a raging river; it comes forth from my throne. Come and bathe yourselves in the river of my spirit. As my river gathers momentum it gathers force and gathers my people with it.

Many are the springs and various rivers upon the earth, but their waters are not as pure as mine. Many have come to bathe in the waters of the Ganges, and they have thought that it was a spiritual water, but it nothing compared to the waters that come from my throne. Many have thought that sickness and disease would be stopped and the people that bathed there would be given new life; but as you know, this is superstition.

For my waters are the only ones that will heal. The prophet called the man with leprosy to go and bathe in the river and dip himself seven times and then he would be healed of his malady. Indeed, he was made anew. For the prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Come and bathe in my river, would say the Lord. Come and be refreshed and made anew. For this river will come tumbling down. And I tell you that a river of great anointing is coming. The river of my spirit in these days will not only bubble forth from deep within your spirit, but it will be poured forth upon you. It will come forth as a rushing river. It will give you strength in these days. It will give you power from above. The chains of bondage will fall off. The lame will walk because of it. Those with diseases and other ailments will be healed.

But I also tell you that another great stream and river is upon the earth. But its waters are murky. The fish have died there; but the people of this earth have still drunk from it. They have filled their glasses to the brim with it. It is the river of man's humanity. This is the river of man's own righteousness. Wars have come forth from this river. Pride and man's inhumanity to others has come forth from it. Various other religions and philosophies have sprung forth from it as well, but it does not have an everlasting taste.

This is my river, come and drink of it."

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, Eph. 3:20
"As the new year comes into play, what types of things will you be doing? Will you go about your business as usual? Will you pretend that the world goes on as it always has? For with the new year new developments will be seen, not only on the political scene but around the globe as well. You will see strong ties being linked with North Korea. For in secret ties are being made with China. Watch as the events play out. For the focus of wars and skirmishes will not always be emphasized with Iraq. The focus will change. World dominion and power is something in secret that she longs to have. The scorpion will suddenly strike.

But in spite of these things I stand ready to bless my people. I stand ready to extend my arm of favor. No more will my people be begging for bread. For the miraculous will be seen in many of your lives. Money and checks in the mail will come at unexpected times. For I am able to do far more than anything you might expect. Don't expect your income to just come from a secular job. And I will take the hands offthe destroyer. He who has come to destroy the lives of many of my people will be thrown down. Many of your jobs and employment will change. New avenues of employment will be seen.

But the world goes on as it always has. You live in a world where greed and power still dominate. But in spite of the darkness all around you, you can still be a great source of light to those around you."

Hebrews 4: 12: "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword."

"What is the answer to many of life's problems, would say the Lord? Many think that they have all the resources to solve their problems. But I tell you that you only have to look to my servant David, for he was always inquiring of me. That is why I called him a man after my own heart. So don't go into the new year thinking that you have all the answers. Even if you are an engineer, and you have a mind and even a blueprint to build a certain thing; Is not the final completions' design something that can change? The final answer comes from my voice, says the Lord.

Many will have new years' resolutions for the new year, but the greatest resolution you can have is to know me better. For I tell you that you will need to. For with the new year, I have said that new doors will open for ministry, but with the new doors opening up, there will be a greater need for my spirit to help you withstand the onslaughts of the enemy.

For I give a greater anointing not just for your own benefit. No... I pour it out that it might be given to aid the body. For one anointing is not just given to benefit one but many.

For this will be a year of great things, says the Lord. But with the great things, comes a two-edged sword. For with a sword you can cut asunder the deeds of the enemy, but it can also prick your own heart as well. For those who have gone into battle wage a war that continues. For with the battle comes a responsibility. For once you've pierced the walls of darkness, then the mist is always there behind those walls. But the darkness has never understood the light. So with the greater anointing comes a two-edged sword.

Fight your battles wisely. Know when to draw your sword against the enemy. For I tell you truly, that it would be wise to wear your armor at all times. Leave it on at all times. For if a war broke out in the camp at night and you were sleeping, would it not be easier to already have your gear on?

So in this new year, be always ready. Be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. Proclaim peace and salvation to the captives. Shun what is evil, and learn to forgive those who are around you. For there a division amongst the brethren. There are camps that have already been set. These are signs that the enemy has been at work there.

"The coming year will bring new doors of ministry, but it will also increase the boundary between many in the body. Nations will fall; more and more upheavals will be seen as earthquakes increase. The poor will always need your help, but as the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer, many are greedy for their own gain. "

I was prompted to go and sit before the Lord, as I knew that he was about to tell me some things. His spirit came upon me and filled me with his living water. I was shown a ceramic pitcher that was pouring out the living water and then he said:

"I want my people to be free. I want them to be free from worry. I want them to sup with me. I want them to be nourished by the still waters. I want them to live from my daily word.

I am giving my living water to whoever would ask of me. No more shall my people be without drink. For I will cause the heavens to rain down my spirit. I tell you that I will pour it out in a very strong way. I will pour it out without measure. Many will wonder in this hour what I am doing; For what would have seemed to dry up from the well is now being replenished. For your spirits will overflow. For what would have been a small trickling stream at first will now turn into a raging river.

For the water will pick up force. What has started in one region will flow into another. And the strength of my water will not only nourish, but it will heal, and it will cause you to leap for joy.

For these things will not originate in your meetings. They will not come forth from your conferences, but they will come from your private times with me. For I am nourishing and building-up a new breed of people. They are not confined to a certain building or church. They are not among your well-known ministers and people. These are those who have been tempered by my own hands. These are those who have come out of many wilderness experiences; and I fed them by the brook as I did Elijah. But now I am training you. For you see, a new battle has begun. For the page is being turned. The trail above will be steeper to climb. For I have given you of my spirit and my word. Now continue to walk and approach the citadel at the top.

Each of you has a different assignment. Each of you has a different area to cover. But with me the journey will always be joyous. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

17 “See, I will create new heavens and a new earth.The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind.18 But be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create,for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy. Isaiah 65

"What is on the edge of the horizon; many of you are saying? What is going to develop in the coming years? Will I be saved from the wrath that is to come? Would a loving God bring havoc upon the earth? I tell you that I come to cleanse the earth from all unrighteousness. I come to bring to completion the sons and daughters of man. I come to present myself to the earth as the soon and coming King. I come to topple down some nations and help some others come to a state of repair. I come to bring about a great change upon the earth. For in the midst of the tumultuous days that are coming, I will raise up men and women of God that will stand upon the walls of this time and age. They will speak to the masses. They will heal the sick. They will bring confusion to others, because the eyes of many are blinded. Then in the midst of all these things when everyone is struggling to make out their existence, the one doomed to perdition will make himself known. He will say that he has a plan to help quell the troubles that are upon the earth. Then the very last things written down in my word will suddenly come to light to you. For you will see that the race will almost be over. You will come to fight with me against the wicked rulers of this age. Then it will be over, and the age of my new kingdom will prevail. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. For there will be new heavens and a new earth. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on thoseliving in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. 3 You haveenlarged the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice before youas people rejoice at the harvest, as warriors rejoicewhen dividing the plunder. Isaiah 9

"There is a great light coming on the other side of the horizon. Itis a light that has been building for some time now. It is a lightthat is growing in strength. It is the light of a new dawn. For anew dawn is coming for my people. For the clouds will roll away; thetrials and the weights will roll away. The long days and years ofwaiting will come to an end. For your trials are producing the fruitthat is desired. Nothing has been in vain my children. There arepurposes to everything that comes into your lives.

But I tell you that with this new year that new doors will open; doorsof ministry and doors of new importunity. For the end of all thingsis at hand. And with the darkness that gains in strength all aroundyou, I want children of the light to be about my business. So thedoors will open and you will walk through them.

20 Then the LORD said, “The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous 21 that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know.” Gen. 18

"Do you remember when my servant Abraham prayed for Sodom and Gomorrah? He came to me and asked if I would save the city. I told him that if I could find but fifty people that I would save the city from destruction.He asked of me that if there were only ten would I save the city from destruction and I said yes.But there weren't any to be found.The city was left as ashes to the ground.The same is as today.Sin is rampant in your country.The filth has run wild to and fro; and yet I have spared this nation because there are many that still serve me.But many have pretended to serve me. They have the outward sign of religion but their hearts are far from me.They are as pretentious as anyone.These are the men-pleasers of religion.They are far from me and their sin is ever present.I tell you, will smoke rise from your cities? Will destruction come upon the shores of the United States? I have found more than fifty who have prayed for this nation, but the state of affairs has stayed the same. You have become a nation like Sodom and Gomorrah. You have done as you have pleased without coming to me. Come to me and see if I will not spare your land. Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord."

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Eph. 6:12

"You are entering into a time frame, would say the Lord. It is a time frame when all the hosts of heaven and the enemy are doing battle. There is always a spiritual battle going on. You don't see it, but it goes on behind the scenes.

The enemy will attempt to do all he can in these last days. He knows that his time is limited. But I tell you my people, that he cannot withstand the word that is within you. But take a hold of the sword of the spirit and I tell you that you will be able to withstand all the fiery darts of the enemy.

He can only dispense his armies into your camp when you allow him to. He preys upon those who are weak. He preys upon the weak and vulnerable. But you can wage war against him by raising your hands together with me. Praise will cause him to flee. Sing songs and spiritual songs, for when you do this, my light will pervade against him.

He can only do so much. I say these things to you so that you would have your armor on at all times. "

7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
Matt. 7:7-9

"There is nothing hidden that can't be found. I have said that if you seekyou will find. To everyone who seeks they will find. They will not only findthe obvious things, they will find the "hidden things."

There are many things that I have hidden just under the surface. There are many insights to be found. There are many "nuggets" to be found. A miner seeks for silver or gold; but these things don't last a lifetime. Just as I have said, it is good to dig deep for wisdom. For those who seek after her will find her. She is a rewarder to those who find her. She endows them with long life and honor. But what if you would seek and find something that has been hidden? Would you display it proudly upon your mantelpiece? But what would you do about something that you found that was "deep in me?" Would you proudly show it to the world around you? Or would you keep it hidden from all others to see? I am endowing some of you with the hidden things from my kingdom. If you truly seek after me you will not only find me, but you will find everything that is "in me." I have said that all of mine is yours. Just as I am in the Father, so are you in me.

Those who seek find. But they find something much more valuable then gold or silver. They find all that they need to find and much, much more. So keep seeking, and you will keep finding. "

"What has happened to my servants that many of them can not hearmy voice? Even those who are supposedly advanced in my kingdom,have ears that can only hear what is around them. Have I not said thatyou should have ears to hear and eyes to see? But to my servantIsaiah I said:

“‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand;keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’

And it is true today. For many do not perceive the things that I havespoken to them. They may even hear my voice, but it is as a far distantone. They hear from afar and not close by. You see, your ears are very important. For without them you would know nothing about me. Yes, you could read about me in my word, but you would not know me intimately asI AM.

To know anyone you must spend time with them. You need to be able to hear their voice. You need to know what their desires and hearts possess.And then so, you know their "heart strings."

Spend time with me my people. Get to know me. Know what is important to me. "

12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. I Cor. 13

"Now is the time to rise up, my people. Now is the time to stand in the strength of my spirit. Now is the time to shake off the chains from the past. Now is the time to come out of your caves. Now is the time to leave the past behind. Now is the time to bury the pastwith the past.

Is the past now alive for you? Does it have strength to propel you forward? Is it alive?I tell you that you will never be able to move forward if you keep having this mindset.For consider the weight of these things. If you had ropes around you, and they were tied to an object behind you. Would it be difficult to move forward? It is the same way with living in the past. For there are ropes from situations that are tying you down to them. There are memories embedded there. Give me those memories and situations. For I have created time. To me, I am beyond all these things. For there is no past, present, or future.

But I tell you that your future is right now. The very things that you have longed for are now here residing with me. Come to me and give me your hopes and dreams. Let go of those things that have held you back. Step onto the road with me. Walk with me, and behold my creation all around you. For it is a new day. It is a day not buried in the past. All of my resources are here now for you. Step into the light and behold all of my promises.

You see the reason that you have been this way is that you have been looking through a veiled mirror. You have seen the world through this mirror. But it is not my mirror of eternity. For when I have said that 'Now you see through a mirror dimly and then face to face,' I have meant that you have looked at your own image with all of its flaws and mistakes. I have meant you have looked at the world in this way. Yes it is filled with depravity and misfortune, but when you shift the mirrors then you will still see the beauty that I have created here. You will see eternity still reflected in that mirror. And then you will see yourself as I see you."

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the 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. John 16:3

"Woe to those who call TRUTH falsehood, and call falsehood TRUTH. These are those who would use their own morality. Pontius Pilate asked my son what TRUTH was, but he was looking for a philosophy and didn't arrive at what it is.

It is not a moral code of conduct. You cannot arrive at TRUTH by doing all the rightthings. It is not a matter of what you do or who you are. It is a matter of who I AM.For I come in a still small breeze. I come in the smell of rain. I come when you arereceptive to hearing from me. For I AM TRUTH. I play a sweet melody upon your heart.I enter into the deep recesses of your soul. If you went to the highest mountainor dove into the deepest ocean you could not acquire me. If you flew into the deepestreaches of outer space you would not find me. Even if you sat for hours meditatingyou would not arrive at what I AM. For you cannot understand me with your mind.But if you let me enter into your heart, and blow upon the embers that are there, thenyou will awaken to what I AM.

It is said that you will know the TRUTH and it will set you free. For then you will befree from searching who I AM. Then the blinders will be taken off your eyes. Then youwill be able to answer that question that so perplexed the man that asked it 2000 years ago."

1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. Psalm 91

"There is a place where I want my servants to reside in. I want them to stayunder the shadow of my wings. For when you do you will be sheltered from thestorms around you. The arrows that fly by night will not touch you. At noon timethe siege will not come. For the wind is going to be blowing in increasing fury duringthese days. The wind will increase its fury. The earth will shake. Those whose houseis not in order will be held within the grips of the winds that are coming. For greatturmoil is coming. You will see it in the political. You will see it in the financial.You will see it in your school systems. For the love of many will wax cold. If youwant soft encouraging words then go to someone else who does not speak for me.I say these things for your safety. I say them that you would be prepared. Comeunder the shadow of my wings. Abide there and I will be your shelter. "

3 Look! The LORD is coming from his dwelling place; he comes down and treads on the heights of the earth.4 The mountains melt beneath him and the valleys split apart,like wax before the fire, like water rushing down a slope.5 All this is because of Jacob’s transgression, because of the sins of the people of Israel.What is Jacob’s transgression? Is it not Samaria?What is Judah’s high place? Is it not Jerusalem? Micah 1:-5

The spirit of the Lord showed me a picture of the United States. I was looking at it from above like a topographical map. In the middle of the continent there was an abrupt split like a great earthquake which had formed and was now causing a huge gap in the middle of the United States. Then a section of the continent was raised up and the edge of this part of the continent was being "tooled" so that clay was formed next to the edge of it. This piece was set back down where it originally had been. The other half of the continent where the split had occurred was also having the same thing done to it. Then as each of these two halves were set back into place, a blue and a red stripe was adhered to the middle of the continent. Thus, the continent of the US now had a red and a blue stripe of earth that was now joined to it in the middle of the continent. As I continued to look at this in wonder, then I noticed that where the blue and red stripes were that they now were becoming a mountain range. A mountain range now ran north and south directly in the middle and it seemed to be quite high in elevation so as to be difficult to cross from one side to another. Then the vision faded.

"This picture represents a split of what is happening in the United States. For the nation as you now know it, is split between two political parties. A mountain range in the spiritual realm will cause one to be very difficult to go and understand each other. For just as there was a civil war that took place several years ago in the United States, a civil war will break out again. The bickering and the mudslinging that has taken place during recent months will be transferred to many groups of people. For understanding will be replaced by close-mindedness. If possible many of your churches will experience this split. What can you do to prevent this? You must put me first and not politics! For to many of you politics has become an idol. What I do in the spiritual is always finalized in the physical. Thus what you have seen as a rift will occur in your continent if you do not change your ways. "

11Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand againstthe devil's schemes. Eph. 6:1

"What are you going to do when all around you there are different spirits,says the Lord? Are you going to be caught up in what they are doing?Are you going to follow the spirit of the air? Or are you going to follow afterme, says the Lord?

In these last days the enemy is going to pull out all of his tricks. He knowsthat his time is short. He knows that his days are numbered. Are you goingto be able to stand against him? I have shown you what you can do. I haveoutlined things for this in my word. Indeed, you need to put on the wholearmor of God. That is the only way that you will be able to stand up againsthis wiles.

But he is not playing games any more. He is going to pull out all of his arsenal.He will try to persuade many to follow after him. But you, people of God havemy spirit within you. For I AM greater than him. He has never understood thelight. He fell from my grace many years ago. So I tell you to stand tall inme. I ask you to forsake all others for me. Then in the darkness you will seemy light being shown all around you. Then you will know that this is the way,walk ye in it. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

13"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broadis the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.14But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, andonly a few find it. Matt.

"I want my people to "push through." For many, the road has beendifficult lately. Many have come down a road and it seems like a longway up to the top; but don't give up, there are places of rest along theway.

Many of you have come to a place in the road where there are choices..What might seem like an easier way may not be the best for you. ForI want you to be made into the vessels of my choosing. For at the topof your journey there is a reward waiting for you. Consider how peopledecorate a Christmas tree. At the top of the tree there is a star thatstands out. The same is true of the culmination of your journey. Butfor now you must take the road that will lead you to that star. For Istand ready to offer all the assistance that you might need. Take theroad that I choose for you."
