25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” Matt. 7

"There are many churches that will fail in the coming year, for there are religious spirits that must come down. For I am sifting and sifting through my people in this hour. Some churches are built upon the sand rather than the solid rock. I tell you that those that are built upon the sand will fall. Nothing that is built upon the hands of man will survive in the coming year or two. The earth will shake. Many things will fall. The tumultuous activity will cause some to run to the hills. This is the hour of your decision. Are you for me or against me, says the Lord? Everything that needs to be shaken will be shaken. I say again to be aware, those of you you live upon the coasts. Watch out for sudden destruction. It is time to get your house in order. It is time to put your horoscopes away. It is time to throw away your tarot cards. Those who seek the voices of the dead will find a spirit that they cannot escape from. Throw away your idols. Repent of your sins and I will forgive you. Come to that shelter that I can give you. Come to that life-giving stream. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

Hebrews 10 19 Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. 23

"For as much as I have chosen many to enter into the holy place where I reside, there are many who do not know how to enter in.

In times past I had a high priest that was chosen to go into the holy of holies, but now you all have access to that. You can all enter into that holy place that used to be reserved for only some. Enter in where only those who used to present their sacrifices to me where allowed to go. Enter in now.

For I will tell you things to come. In the coming months many who are believers in me, will find themselves separated from others in the faith. A separation is coming. I tell you that a separation is coming that will separate many in the faith. For just as an earthquake will split open the ground near the Mississippi River, many Christians will be divided between supporting this president and any of those who are running against him. For some are so adamant in their beliefs that they follow a god of their own making. They follow a political god. They are so certain in the rightness of their "opinions" that they would label anyone that disagrees with them as deceived.

Be on your guard against these things, for the enemy seeks to divide and destroy. I tell you that the anti-christ is not the man who stands in office now. Many have thought because of their own hatred, that he is the one. Some think that they have my eyes to see into these things, and that their discernment is accurate. But I tell you that your discernment is not accurate unless you also have my voice to guide you in this matter as well.

I tell you, who is the better man? Who of you has stepped into the Holy of Holies and heard my voice speak concerning these things? I tell you that many of the watchmen have been deceived as well. Put aside your presumptuous spirits. I welcome you to come to my throne, but I want you to quit spreading lies and rumors."

Micah 6:8 "He has told thee O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?"

3And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. I Cor. 13

"What would one do to give their life away for me? What vow would you promise to me to give your life? Would you sell all your possessions? Would you give everything away to the poor? Would you sing songs of worship and praise to me? Would you go away into the desert to live your life for a time and a season? Would you give your body to be burned? I tell you, these are not the things I am looking for. I only ask that people would worship me in spirit and in truth. For many think that they need to do great things for me. Many think that I ask for severe obedience and nothing more. Many even among those who call themselves 'my prophets,' think that I have assigned them to walk a road where they must adhere to the strictest of codes. Many who have thought about this road that they have been on, also think that others must walk in this way. Surely, I have asked you to pick up your own cross and follow after me. But I also say that there are places of rest along the way as well. Otherwise, you become like the Pharisees of old.

Is life not to be enjoyed? Is all still meaningless as Solomon once said? Walk the road out that I've prepared for you to do. But don't think that it must just be an arduous one."

21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. Eph. 1

"There are many in the body of Christ that seek the supernatural rather than seeking me. For you must seek after the head rather than those other things. Seek the rock that holds all things together. For truly, there are wonders to be found in me but you must not seek the "experience." For I AM he who is written down. I AM the Bright and Morning Star. I AM not a sensation to be sought after. I AM the person of Jesus Christ. I hold all things together. Would you seek the foot rather than the head? Would you seek the experience rather than the person behind the experience? In all things you need to grow up into the head. For I see little of man doing this in your churches. I see sensationalism. I see a party spirit. I see children playing games. You bicker among yourselves over trivial matters. Is there no maturity to be found? There is to be found no sounds of the spirit when you voice your own experience. For it is all a clanging cymbal with notes that ring to a melody of your own making. When you seek these things are you seeking after another spirit? For I tell you, when you seek the experience rather than me, then you are following after a vapor."

25 “This is the inscription that was written:MENE, MENE, TEKEL, PARSIN 26 “Here is what these words mean: Mene[e]: God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end. 27 Tekel[f]: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting. 28 Peres[g]: Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians. Daniel 5

I was just sitting still not doing much of anything and the Lord dropped a words into my spirit.

I am sensing more and more in the spirit that the coming two years will be very difficult for many of us. While I certainly would desire to give "words of comfort and encouragement" I can't just speak other than what I hear. I am not a doomsday person per say, and there are times when a word of peace and edification is certainly warranted and anointed. However, this one and the previous message, are not of that arena. I also need to say that in spite of the fact that difficult days are ahead for us, many will be able to be those who are "in the ark of safety." It's not a physical ark, it's simply being under the wings of protection of the Almighty so that those wings and pinions would keep you safe from the storm. Warnings such as this are not meant to be a thing of fear, but they should instead, drive us to those wings of safety so that we could then trust no matter what comes, even though the mountains fall into the sea.

He said:

"This earthquake will occur within the next several years. Many people will die in the process of it. Other cities will be destroyed by fire and flood. My hand will reach out across this continent. Many will come to me in this process. For the doors of the ark will be open. But the time will come when they will be closed. Will you come to me now, or will you be like those stiff-necked people that laughed at Noah when he told them to come into the ark?

I have set my angel upon the edge of this continent. He holds a balance within his hands. But I tell you that the weight of your abominations has weighed much more heavily on one side. For you have been weighed in the balance and found wanting. Prepare by getting your houses in order. "

1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. 2 Tim. 3
"In the coming year, as you have been told, there will be a loss of many things in the natural. For the unemployment rate will go up even higher. As more and more people are without jobs this will affect the economy and more people will be limited with what they can buy.

You have heard some dire predictions from other sources. These have proclaimed that the year 2012 would be the end. I tell you that no one knows the day or the hour, but unto my prophets, those who have heard me intimately, they know that the day and the hour is indeed upon the brink. For as they travel from the east; as they come in hoards from across the plains of Asia, you will know indeed, that that day has come upon you.

More and more unrest be be evident upon the nation of America. For the political disputes will have risen to such a degree that brother will be against brother. Entire churches will have become fractured because of these disputes. But I tell you this, I have a people who are not driven by the agendas of man. They don't let their political opinions and beliefs drive them down the road of mania.

Are great rifts to be seen in the natural? You have been warned time after time concerning these things. For that split will surely occur that runs from north to south through the central part of the United States.

(Here the Lord showed me a scene of this rift. There was a huge gap that was perhaps 200-300 feet or more that divided the land mass. I saw an island of a portion that had been left intact between the rift. Here some people had somehow found their way to safety there. But on either side of the two cliffs that had now formed, were people hanging from the sides of these cliffs.)

So I tell you that the time clock will hasten. Time as you know it, will accelerate and the affairs that you now are doing, will take on a new dimension. Woe to those who live on the coasts, for your land masses will be altered greatly. You have heard and seen the devastation that has come upon the shores of other countries. But because you think that you dwell in safety, because you think that you are so great, I will topple you from your pinnacle of pride.

You say in your hearts that you are a reverent nation. You say in your hearts that why would God destroy the innocent along with the wicked? I tell you that I will provide a way out for those who put their trust and faith in me.

You won't hear this message from the pulpits. You will hear a different one entirely there. Surely, I do want to bless my people. Surely, I do care for the wayward. Surely, I do care for the fatherless. But judgement must be poured out. Now what will you do with this message?

5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Cor. 10:5
(This word began with a vision of a man that was going to out to sow seed. I saw him as an ordinary farmer with one hand in his bag of seeds and he would toss them upon the ground, but he was seemingly not aware of the soil that he was throwing the seed into.)

"My servants, those whom I've entrusted with my word; I ask that you would seek me with your whole heart and purpose. For you need to have purity of heart and vision. For I tell you that the enemy would try to keep you without my peace. For you must know that the battleground is the mind. Here there is a battlefield that is fought every day.

For it is one thing to pray, and yet it is another thing to read my word. But then it is another thing altogether to go about your day having your mind filled with all kinds of thoughts. For it is true that you may mediate upon my word. It is true that you may raise your hands in adoration of me. But it is also true that you are diverted from your course throughout the day. For are not the thoughts like seeds? Are they not nourished in the soil of your heart? So remember the parable of the sower. He went out to sow his seed. Some of it fell upon fallow ground. You know the parable. Take those thoughts of yours and allow them to be directed by me. Then you will not be misled by the enemy. You can take every thought captive to me. Know that I have given you an arsenal. Know that I have equipped you for warfare. You will tread upon the enemy, but you must first learn this valuable lesson of taking your thoughts captive to me. "

"I tell you that it is time for my messengers to speak. For many have been held back. Many have been muzzled. It is now time to be released from these things. Some have not spoken because of fear. Some have not spoken because their church has not allowed it. I tell you that I am the one that gives the anointing. I am the one that gives you the words to speak. You are not to be silent! How can my word go out if it is not allowed to?

So let the anointing flow. Let the words come. Let them come unbridled by man. Let them be given freedom. Speak as my ambassadors to this generation. Then the mountains will roll. Then the waters will flow unto the sea. The world needs to hear. The mountains will break into. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

1 But now, this is what the LORD says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers,they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned;the flames will not set you ablaze. 3 For I am the LORD your God,the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush[a] and Seba in your stead. Isaiah 43

"My spirit is rolling across the waters in this hour. I am searching for hearts that would listen to me.

I tell you that the hour is very late; many do not know how urgent the need is to know my voice and to heed the call.

But the very waters are churning. The waters are speaking to each of you. They are saying that it is time. It is time to heed the call. Ignore the other waves around you. For there are whirlpools. There are undercurrents. These currents would attempt to pull you down. There are other voices that would speak to you; They would dissuade you from following the path that I have set out for you.

But look to the lighthouse that is set upon the hill. For it searches out throughout the ocean. It looks for those who are stranded there. My light will shed abroad.

For every lost soul who is upon the waters will find hope in me.

The hour is getting more and more late. Rescue the lost. For soon the storm will have taken over and they will not see the light."

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

M/I>"These are the days that many of old searched into. These are the days of searching and finding out. For if you find me you find EVERYTHING. For I AM the beginning and the end. Many search for buried treasure but they only find things that are long dead there. I AM the treasure that men have searched for, and when you find me you find more than all the world's treasures combined. But there is a hidden treasure you find with me. There is a hidden "gem" from knowing me. For those who have searched long, those who have gone through many trials, those who have forsaken all to follow me, will find the hidden manna.

Your forefathers gathered the manna that I left for them every morning. I fed them with this every morning, and I gave them meat in the evening, and this nourished and fed them for many long years. But you need a manna that will sustain you in the difficult days that are upon you. For my hidden manna is the manna for those who long for the deep things of my spirit.

I have said, 'Seek and you will find.' But keep seeking me, and as you continue to do this, the hidden manna will have formed within you. It will feed you through many long winters. It will enlighten you and show you the way that you must go. I AM the bread of life. Eat of me and you will be nourished and sustained."

15 “Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles— 16 the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.” Matt. 4

"Out of the earth I have formed a people who will complete my desires, and they will fulfill my plans for these last days that you are living in.

For a great army is coming. It is coming, says the Lord. They will suddenly spring upon the earth. For they have no need of earthly weapons. For they are dressed in my armor says the Lord. No need of spear or pruning hook, for these that come have been trained by my spirit.

And even though the world is dark and full of confusion, my strength and purpose will be brought forth. For many of you have wandered far looking for streams of my spirit. You have just wanted to rest from your labors. For the onslaught of this world's system has caused many to wonder how they might get out of the predicament that they are in. But I tell you that I am never late. I always come on time when the need is urgent and the hearts have poured out their prayers unto me. For I have windows open in heaven; and these windows can pour out my provision and my mercy to those who are in need in this hour.

For the wealth of the wicked will be emptied. The hoarding of those with selfish hands will be emptied into the needy. Look for miracles in this hour. Look for signs in the heavens. Look for signs of my presence that would astound you.

I know that the days are difficult, but I will carry you when you can not skip or trod across the land. My right hand will strengthen you and my rod will support you. Even though you walk through dark valleys, I will be there to sustain you. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord. "

33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

"The world is not an easy place to live, says the Lord; but in spite of all the tragedies; in spite of all the sorrows and confusion, I have overcome.

Where there is death or disease, I have overcome.
Where there is hatred, I have overcome.
Where there is sorrow, I have overcome.
Where there is confusion, I have overcome.
Where there is no provision, I have overcome.
Where there is loneliness, I have overcome.

I have overcome the world. The world does not hold the answers. This world's system and everything in it, will come to an end. But where I AM I will cause you to triumph. You will triumph over evil in all its forms. You will ravage the enemy's camp and you will send him reeling.

I will give you the words in the needed hour. I will give you the resources. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

"Many men search for gold. Many search for riches. But the greatest riches that can be found are to be found in my temple. For it is not the temple built with human hands; it is the temple of my spirit. For within my spirit there is wisdom that far outshines anything on this earth.

It is the white stone that embodies all truth. For I am that white stone. I am the bright and morning star. I am that stone that the builders rejected. When you find me, you find everything. You need not seek for wisdom or love, but in seeking me, then you find ALL these things.

I was there at the beginning. I was with the Father. This world and everything in it, was created by a WORD. It is a creative force. That same WORD resides in each of you. For have I not said that the tongue has the power of life or death? Watch your words. Wear them close to your heart. Let wisdom rule in your hearts and minds. Wear wisdom like a string of pearls; and that jewelry will always uphold you. "

"Press into my purposes. Press into what I want you to do. What do I want you to do? I just want you to sit before me and to listen to my voice. For my voice is more still and calm than the waters. With my voice I spoke the world into existence.

Many wonder why they cannot hear me speaking to them. You have so many sounds around you. There are so many voices in this world, and they are all clamoring for your attention. You have the sounds of traffic on the road. You have the sounds of music playing all around you. You have the sounds of the television. You have the sounds of your family members.

Find that quiet place where you can enter into my rest. For all the other voices are keeping you from hearing mine. You don't have to journey far--find the time where ever you are, Otherwise, your minds and your hearts will be vexed and full of confusion.

You don't have to go through a ritual. You don't have to burn incense or light a candle. You don't have to utter a perfect prayer to me. Just still your heart and listen..."

33 But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.34 “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn“‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother,a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law— Matt. 10

"It's just a matter of time. It's just a matter of time before I come back. And as you know in my word I am coming back with a sword. For the sword will separate between many things. What will you do when that sword pierces your heart? What will you do when members of your family fall away and decide not to follow me? What will you do when you are the only one in your family that has followed me and the others are left behind? I tell you that I need to be first. If I am not first then those other things that take predominance in your life will cause you to drift away and you will not have oil in your lamp to see.

I am a just and mighty king and I will set up my kingdom upon this earth. Those gates will always be open to those who would enter in with a clean heart. But the deceivers, those who have followed after other devices, will surely not enter in. For behold, you will look upon me, and you will see that I had been pierced, and you who are guilty will know who has pierced me. But behold....take heart and be ready, for that day hastens forward. You are on the threshold of that time.

While it is true, that the economy has weakened and has tottered on the very edge of a precipice, this is but one of many signs that I am coming soon. Be like the five wise maidens who bought oil and they were ready when the time came for them.

While the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, do not become disheartened because of these things. For I am able to cause the righteous to prosper. I am able to cause many things to fall into your laps. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

"Can you hear the sound of my spirit speaking to you? Can you hear the sounds of the waves beating across the shoreline? From season unto season those waves carry the debris and deposit them upon the shoreline. The waves of the ocean echo the timeless seasons that have been poured out upon the earth. At the tops of each of those waves you will hear my spirit speaking to you.

In ancient times I warned the earth through my servant Noah and I sent a flood because of the wickedness of mankind. And now once again, man has reached a pinnacle of wickedness, but this time I will not send a flood.

The church has drifted far from my original plan. Many have flooded to great centers of learning. Here the writings of theologians and scholars would dictate how they would read my word. But I tell you that there are the young who know more than these men. For they would train you how to become a pastor. You will learn how to become a good speaker. You will be able to baptize. You will then be able to officiate at weddings and funerals---but will this enable you to hear from my spirit?

But I tell you that I will change the structure of the church. For I will seek out with my own hand those who would minister in my churches. For gone will be the days of the one-man-show.

And I will send my torch of fire across this nation. For those who have been displaced, those who have been sent out of the churches, will be given this torch. And the embers and the fires of this torch will be spread across this nation. It will be a pioneering effort; and those who are famous or well-known will be taken by surprise. In my time I will hasten it. My true church will be resurrected once again; and my spirit will enable these things to be done.

For the organization is not a living organism. As long as there is a man-made structure it will not rise to my highest level of fulfillment.

And I will speak to the young who are coming upon the scene, and they will speak forth my oracles. You haven't seen miracles yet. You haven't seen my provision fully extended. You have so far just seen a flash-in-the-pan.

These are the days of my warriors. These are the days of my true prophets. For they won't speak what man wants to hear. They will only speak what I give unto them.

It is time for the old wine skins to be taken away. It is time for the scholars who have studied at the universities to leave. You need to step to the back of the room.

The generation of Saul has ended. It is now time for my Davids' to come upon the scene."

20 Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: 21 “Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!”? 22 These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings. Col. 2

"Bring all your treasures into my storehouse. Give me all the things that you hold dear to yourself. For many of you have 'hidden idols.' Many of you have held up people; you have held up political candidates, and you have held them in a place as an idol. An idol does not just come in the form of wood or stone. What do you spend your time thinking about? What takes precedence in your life? Some of you have agendas. You have agendas about church. You have agendas about what is the right way to worship. You get up on your soapbox and you talk about this or that. You have passion for these things, but do you have a passion for me? Are some of you any different that any of the Pharisees were? You have rules and regulations about how your lives should be set-up. You have rules about the types of music that you should be listening to. You have rules about the food that you should eat. You have rules about giving to your local church or charitable organization. Some of you are so uptight that you don't know what true freedom is in me. Yes, you shouldn't use your freedom as a pretense for evil, and yes, you shouldn't cause your brother to stumble. But you shouldn't be held in bondage by these things either. Remember when my servant David danced before me? He was scoffed at by some, and yet he continued to do this. There are things in this world that I have created for your enjoyment and good, and yet some still say "Don't touch or taste this!" I tell you, do you want to please man or me? "

12 “None of us, my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.” 2 Kings 6

"Is there anything that I cannot do, says the Lord? Is there any mountain that I cannot remove? Is there anything that I cannot remove into the sea? I am the God of new beginnings. Everything is new in the morning. For you see the sun come up and you see a new day begin.

But I tell you that the enemy's forces have been gathering. They work behind the scenes They wait and they stand ready to ambush. But I will give eyes and ears to my people so that their plans will be thwarted.

Just as my prophet of old saw into the enemy's camp and was able to save the kingdom at that time, so I will give some of you these things. And yet some will still be deceived, for the hearts of many are moved by greed rather than by love. "

(This word is a continuation of the previous one "THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND." Except that this one is directed towards the leadership of many in churches today.)

1 “Woe to the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the sheep of my pasture!” declares the LORD. 2 Therefore this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says to the shepherds who tend my people: “Because you have scattered my flock and driven them away and have not bestowed care on them, I will bestow punishment on you for the evil you have done,” declares the LORD. Jeremiah 23

"There are many blind guides in this world as well. There are many blind leaders. There are those who 'think' they are showing the way, but I tell you that entire churches will fall into the ditch because of the blind leadership. For entire churches have gone the way of this blind leadership.

So, decide for yourselves this day who you would follow. Would you follow me or someone who thinks they know the way? For programs and popularity have replaced the need for my spirit in many of your churches.

I hold those who have chosen to lead my sheep down a different road other than the way that my spirit would have led them; I demand their release of them! For I have said, 'Let not many of you be teachers.' You propose your own way, says the Lord. If you continue to lead my sheep down a different path other than the one that I have chosen for them then I will cut you off.

Choose to enter into fellowship with my spirit says the Lord. Then if you continue to do these things, and follow after my leading rather than your own, then I will restore you."

Stephen Hanson


Sept, 5, 201139 He also told them this parable: “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into a pit? Luke 6:39

(The spirit of the Lord showed me people who were walking forward and each one of them was tied to the one in front of them. Each one of them could not see what was in front of them, and yet each one of them was tied to the one in front so that they could move forward. The scene ended with all of them falling to the ground.)

"I tell you that many during this time are like the blind leading the blind. I tell you my people, this is true of many in this hour. For many do not know where they are going. They walk blindly in the dark. They grope with their hands trying to find their way. Where are those who would lead the way in this hour? I have said in my word, 'This is the way, walk ye in it.' And yet many of you are blind to know how to walk forward in this hour. Your eyes have been blinded by the spirit of this age.

I say to get out of the cave that you have been living in lately. For there is daylight outside. My spirit will guide you in this hour if you would but put on my eyes, says the Lord; but your eyes are easily entertained by the things of this world. Take off your blinders. Take off those things that have prevented you from seeing.

Are you blind to the injustice that is going on around you? Are you blind to the needs of the widow? Are you blind to the fatherless? I tell you that the entire nation is blind. They need eyes to see. They need ears to hear. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

"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--my great army that I sent among you.Joel 2: 25

"The wind blows and it opens up a new season. For the summer is over. It is time to usher in a new time and season. For the season that you are entering into is a season of serious preparation. For the final days are rushing towards a count down. My people would be wise to pay attention to the signs that are all around them. The unrest that many are feeling and sensing indicates that the atmosphere is culminating in a count down.

I tell you that the times of economic upheaval are here. As more and more people lose their jobs and the severity of the unemployment numbers increases some will make rash decisions. For stores will be plundered, and some will rise up to take matters into their own hands.

But those of you who put your faith and trust in me will see a miraculous break through. For in unexpected ways I will meet the needs of my people in this hour. The enemy would want you to grovel in the dust but I want you to look up. For my redemption draweth nigh. For the enemy has stolen------but I will replenish the storehouse. And even though many are without jobs and a regular income, I will stretch my arm out and the Red Sea will be parted, and you will go across safely unto safe ground. I will fill-up your vessels with new wine. I will smash the devourer.
Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

1 See, a king will reign in righteousness and rulers will rule with justice.2 Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm,like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land. 3 Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed, and the ears of those who hear will listen. Isaiah 32

"There is a voice heard in the forest. There is a voice heard telling people to flee to safety. Now is the time to prepare your goods. It would be wise to prepare for the days ahead. Those who escape safely from the storm in these days don't go to a habitation; they flee to a temporary place. For the days are becoming darker and darker. People will run to and fro looking for shelter from the storm but because of the frantic nature that consumes people in these days, very few places will offer safe harbor from the storm.

But there are some who have planned for these days. They have sought insight in my spirit and have been told to build places of safety for those who look for shelter. This is not a place that one would flee to when one storm hits, but it is a place of sanctuary where the righteous would find shelter in habitation so that they would weather the storms that would continue to come.

For there will be unusual weather patterns found and experienced throughout the globe. There will be extremes of heat and cold. There will be looting more and more, in your major cities. There will be more and more people forced out of their homes. Some forced to find relief from these things, will steal and will take things by force.

Where are the answers to be found? Does a certain branch of government have the answers? Do those who wear red have a better grasp on these things? I tell you that all those who run for office do not have the answers that you seek. Only those who have sought me diligently in these days will find true shelter from the storm. "

(I was watching the news as they were talking about the recent quake in Virginia, and then the Lord began to speak to me saying:)

"This is the day of beginnings; for, in times and in places you will witness strange and unusual natural disasters.

Without notice the sky will boil, the earth will rumble, and people will run to and fro seeking shelter.

(The Lord then showed me a vision of the ark. There was a staircase that went up into the ark and there were some people around it who were looking at it, but no one ventured into it. Some who had already decided to be in it were standing on the top of the ark looking down at the people. Then the door closed on the ark and the vision faded.)

For these things will take you by surprise. Many think that these natural disasters wouldn't occur next to them. You who sit safely in your own home; do you think that you are safe from the storm that rages outside? Bricks and mortar will not save you on that day. Even your palaces of stone will crumble. Will you run to the hills for cover? Yea, I told you that I would shake the earth once again.

The shaking will continue. I want to get your attention. I would that none would perish, but I AM a God of judgment also. "

20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that[h] the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God. 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. Romans 8

(This prophetic word began with a vision of a person who was lying comfortably on their bed. I watched as this person reached across the bed to turn off the alarm clock. It was as if they had just hit the snooze button and then she went back to sleep.)

"I am speaking to my people in this hour. I tell you that it is time to rise up from your slumber. For many of have been lulled to sleep by the spirit of this age. Many of you lie on your beds and you sleep away the hours. You do not know the hour that it is. For it is past the eleventh hour. Behold.....look at the clock!

(The spirit of the Lord showed me the hands on the clock and there were just a couple of minutes left before the clock struck 12:00.)

Everyone around the world is always checking the time on your watches and clocks, but you don't know the hour that it is. For indeed, your eyes have been blinded by these things.

For you have your cell phones and you have your appointment books and you plan for all the events of your day; but you don't plan for the hour that you are living in. You can't see the events that are about to be played out. I have chronicled all these things in my word. I have said that nations would fall, and I have said that there would be wars and rumors of wars. I have said that there would be famine and plagues. And you are seeing one of the greatest famines in history as seen as people cross borders and attempt to go into another land. You have heard and seen as mothers carry their children there. You have seen of the callousness and the brutality that they face. You watch as many starve to death and die. And then you see another round of political upheavals in the land that was once called the land of the free and the home of the brave. You watch as these things play out.

I tell you that this earth is going through birth pangs, and she is tired of the struggles of centuries of wars and ruthless men. But she is about to give birth. For a spiritual battle is eminent. For my last days' servants are coming upon the scene, and with the weapons of my warfare they will do battle against the enemy. Are you ready for these events to play out? I tell you that there will be upheavals upon this earth unlike any you have experienced before. The stage is set; the characters are about to take their parts in the play. "

“Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. Jeremiah 6

"The secret to climbing a mountain is not carrying too much weight."

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a man who was climbing a mountain. There was a pathway before him that meandered and continued to go upwards. He carried a heavy backpack and held a staff as he went up the mountain. The terrain would change and would twist and turn as he went up higher and higher. The load that he was carrying seemed to get heavier and heavier, and yet he kept going. I watched as he came to a cliff and then crawled up this cliff wall and embankment and then reached the top. Here there was another path that kept going towards the top of the mountain. )

The Lord then said:

"The race is not to the swift nor to those of great skill, but all must carry their own weight and cross up the mountain towards a higher place in me. There is a road and a pathway that I am calling my servants to cross. Many have attempted these roads in me, but some have given up because it is much too arduous for their journey; but if you continue and mark your steps well, you will see that there are ancient steps marked out on this pathway. You will find rest along the way. You will hear the echoes of those who have gone before. I will feed you beside these streams. Continue climbing; don't turn to the left or to the right. Set your face like flint and only follow the footsteps that I have marked out for you. "

4 But that night the word of the LORD came to Nathan, saying: 5 “Go and tell my servant David, ‘This is what the LORD says: Are you the one to build me a house to dwell in? 6 I have not dwelt in a house from the day I brought the Israelites upout of Egypt to this day. I have been moving from place to place with atent as my dwelling. 7 Wherever I have moved with all the Israelites, did I ever say to any of their rulers whom I commanded to shepherd my people Israel, “Why have you not built me a house of cedar?”’2 Samuel 7

"What has happened to my church? My shepherds have gone their own way. They have followed after other mandates and they have caused my sheep to be lost amongst their own wanderings. They have developed their own kingdoms. I never meant for just one man to lead my church.

They have set up their policies. They have set up their programs; but even so, I am left out because they would rather follow the mandate of one man. These are not the shepherds I would have chosen. These are not the churches I would have built. Would you rather have your tall, highly polished and adorned cathedrals where they are overly-controlled or a simple home or place of worship where my spirit is allowed freedom to roam?

Brick and mortar do not suit me. Tall cedars from the trees of Lebanon are good, but I am not one for a highly polished room. Meet me along the byways and the dusty roads where you will find the destitute and the downtrodden.

My church has become a man-made spectacle. It has become an organization not an organism. That is why I have those who have been 'called out." Do the work, all of you; be my body amongst the people of this world. Then they will see what a true church is."

26 “Here is what these words mean: Mene[e]: God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end. 27 Tekel[f]: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting. 28 Peres[g]: Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.” Daniel 5

"An approaching storm is coming. It comes from the north. For the days that many have wondered about are soon to come to pass. For out of the north they come; invaders from a foreign land. For your borders will be crossed over. The leagues of land will be crossed over into.

Many have thought that your nation is secure. Many have thought that your borders could not be breached, but they come and they enter in. Have I not said that I would drop the safety net? It was held up for many years, thinking that you would return to me. But you have gone your own way. You have not listened to those who have warned you. You would rather fill your pockets with the gold and the silver that comes from ill-gotten gains.

You would rather listen to your 'feel-good preachers.' You would rather bury your heads in the sand and pretend that all will be ok.

I have said that judgment would begin with the household of God, and this is true. Judgment has been poured out upon the church, and some are fallen while others rise up. Why do you think that your economy is in the state that it is in? Yes there are decisions that have been made and your debt is in question, but I am using all this to bring you to your knees. I am doing all this to get your attention. For this is all part of my judgment.

It is never too late to listen, but I must tell you that the stroke of the pendulum has started. You have been weighed in the balance and found wanting. "

13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day ofevil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you havedone everything, to stand. Eph. 6

"This is the year for trouble, but also for break through. Fortrouble mounts on every corner, but I have caused you to overcome,says the Lord. For even though times are desperate, I will cause mypeople to triumph gloriously. For trouble follows after you, but Iwill tell you that even as the horses and the riders were thrown intothe sea, the Egyptians will fall behind you.

But you must war against these things. You must stand your ground andfight against these things in the spirit, says the Lord. For theenemy has mounted an attack. He has mounted an attack against mypeople; but he will not prevail. I tell you that you will smash theserpent. You will cut his head off. One word spoken in belief againsthim will cause him to flee. His weapons are weak compared to mine.A great crowd of witnesses follows behind you, my people. Those whohave gone before you struggled with these same things, but I tell youthat the world system is breaking. The monetary system is breaking.The government system is breaking. There will not be any system leftother than my system, says the Lord.

But you can depend upon me my people. For I own the cattle on athousand hills; and when things look like they are going to totallyfall apart, then look upwards for my provision. Don't look to theworld system for your provision. Set your hope on things above.Don't look to the earth, for it dwindles like the grass.

Yes...difficult days are ahead. In fact, they will be darker than anydays that have yet come, but my light will shine the brighter. Youwill prevail through these days. The chains will be broken; the enemywill be crushed, and my provision will be given."
