11 He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young. Isaiah 40

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a landscape that had various sheep in it. Some seemed to be lost and were wandering, not knowing where to go. Then I saw the Great Shepherd and he started picking up one and tucked it inside his cloak. He quietly began walking around, staff in hand, searching for other sheep to find.)

And then he said:

I Am the Great Shepherd. and I am searching for my lost sheep. I have seen some of them on distant hills grazing in strange areas. They have wandered far from my sight and they have eaten weeds instead of the food that I had given to them. Their coats have become matted and dirty, and they have become scrawny in appearance.

For you found water, but it was stagnant. You found food, but it hasn't nourished your soul. For you traveled down long roads to find something other than me. You went your own way. But I tell you, just like the prodigal son, I will welcome you back. I will take you in my arms and shield you from the storms of this life.

But you must turn and come back to the hills that I had made for you. Otherwise, you are like sheep without a shepherd. Otherwise, you are lost and you would eat anything.

The time is soon approaching when I will separate the sheep from the goats, and I don't want you to be numbered among the goats. I don't want the door to my kingdom to be shut to you. Come back while there is still time. "

I was in the spirit and the Lord told me to begin writing,

"I tell you that a great army is assembling. For hordes are getting ready to come across the ocean. The battle in the Middle East has begun. For as in ancient times they came with spears and hooks; now they come with modern warfare. For the ancient country of Persia will muster their forces with the aid of China. For when the sanctions run out, and when their resources are depleted, then they will come forth with a mighty arm.

For these events will fall like dominoes. The world's stage is poised for these things to happen. The sounds of hoof beats are heard on the horizon. America, you will be led into a war; it won't be like the previous ones. For they will be minor in comparison to this one. You think that you have lost some freedoms now, but wait to see what happens in the on-course of this one.

You have been warned repeatedly from the voices of my prophets. You have been told of the breach of your shores, and yet many of you still stand in complacency. Your forces will be sent out, and the skirmishes will begin. These things will rock the world's economy.

The eagles will fly, but few will take heed of their message. You have been warned for preparedness. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

3 Ahab king of Israel asked Jehoshaphat king of Judah, “Will you go with me against Ramoth Gilead?” Jehoshaphat replied, “I am as you are, and my people as your people; we will join you in the war.” 4 But Jehoshaphat also said to the king of Israel, “First seek the counsel of the LORD.” 5 So the king of Israel brought together the prophets—four hundred men—and asked them, “Shall we go to war against Ramoth Gilead, or shall I not?” “Go,” they answered, “for God will give it into the king’s hand.”2 Chronicles 18:3-5

"Why do so many of you find that you cannot spend time with me in prayer? You hurry here and there. You are busy with this or that, and you consider that your time spent with these things is much more important than spending time with me.

Many of the problems that you face in this life are because you've gone about them your own way. Many do not inquire about me. Many go through this life without consulting with me about the decisions that they make in this life.

Do you want to know about a future job? Are you uncertain about marrying a certain person? Then inquire of me. Are you caught-up in a difficult situation at work? Should you be involved in this money-making scheme or not? Then ask of my counsel.

When nations go to battle at war many of these disputes could have been alleviated if wise counsel had been taken. Be wise in your dealings with men. Withhold your knowledge, and do not throw your pearls before swine. For some will trample them under by foot. "

‎11For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; 12The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;13The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. Song of Solomon 2:11-13

"I tell you my people that the Spring is coming. For even in the midst of darkness; even in the midst of uncertain times, there is always hope beyond the season that you are in. For even when the days seem hopeless, it is just then that something is about to burst forth from the ground in your lives.

There are new things being birthed in my spirit every day. There are new opportunities and jobs for you just around the corner. There are new doors being opened. There are new landscapes to be seen in front of you. But I tell you that the long Winter months were not in vain. For even though it may have seemed like a barren time, the trees gathered strength from their roots. For indeed, new things are coming, my people. There are new challenges, but there are also new promises as well. Throw off the cloak of Winter "

Amos 3:8: “The lion has roared, who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken, who can but prophesy?”
“I wish that all the LORD’S people were prophets and that the LORD would put his Spirit on them!” Numbers 11:29
“‘The days are coming,’ declares the Sovereign LORD, ‘when I will send a famine through the land – not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the LORD’” (Amos 8:11).
“If the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle?” 1 Cor. 14:8

"Where have all the prophets gone? Where have those who spoke on the wings of my spirit gone to? Have some of you gone back to your caves? Are some of you lost in the desert? I tell you that it is time to return. It is time to rise up once again. For you have spent long months lost in a maze of wanderings. Return and come back. I will infuse you with a new spirit, says the Lord. I will satisfy your longings.

You are my mouth pieces and I need you to speak for me. Come and return to your place on the wall. Come and return to what I have for you. Don't shrink back in fear. Rise up on the wings of my spirit. I will give you the words in this hour. And you will stand before the congregations of men. The services will be jolted. The songs sung by the choirs will pause, and the people will search their hearts. For the tables of the money changers need to be turned over. Too long has my church become a social club. For too long have my prophets been muzzled. The walls will breathe once again, and a new church will rise at the time appointed. For the complacency of Laodicea has lulled much of church to sleep. The lion has spoken."

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. Isaiah 43

“...and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, ‘A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!’” Rev. 6:2

"There are things at work in the earth that will come forth this year. Watch as your dollar loses more and more of its value. For the almighty dollar will lose its value. The third horse will march across this country. Do not think that hoarding up money will help for what was once worth a lot of money will at some point be greatly diminished.

For it is wise to plan ahead for these days, but how will you plan? How will you keep what you hold in value to sustain you in these days? For even gold and silver will lose its value. For I tell you that the entire monetary system will falter. But even so, I will take care of my own during these days. For I will intercede on behalf of my people. I will look down upon the poor with compassion. I will extend your food during these days. Just as the prophet asked for oil and bread, it will be extended unto you longer.

But I tell you that people's hearts will falter. They will fear for the loss of these things. For they will not know where to put their trust and belief in. For when the entire foundation is cracking, then where else can they look but myself?

That is why there is violence in the streets. That is why people are looking for answers. But I will come swiftly and deliver you in these days, says the Lord. I will deliver you from many waters. I will rescue you from the mouth of the devourer. This is my promise to you in these days. "

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? Matt. 7:22

"In these days, what would you choose, my people? Would you choose to be in a wayward church that continually goes the way of man, or would you follow my spirit? I tell you that a great separation has begun. Those who follow after me must be prepared to see the rejection of themselves. Because you will not be welcomed in the churches because of these things.

If you follow after me you will be persecuted. I tell you that I am separating the goats from the sheep. And you would be surprised to know that the goats are in the churches. And I will say on that day, 'I never knew you.' And you will say, "But Lord, did we not prophesy, did we not heal the sick, did we not go to church every Sunday?" But you followed after the plans of man. You followed after the rules and ordinances of an old covenant. I am calling for a people who would worship me in spirit and in truth.

For if you would behold a river, there are some who have crossed on over to the other side. But there are still others who are there on the other bank. They are like those from Egypt. They ran after the children of Israel but they were drowned in the sea. These are those who have followed after the ordinances of man.

Choose this day, are you among those who have crossed over or are you still on the other side of the bank looking on?

The Parable of the Sower

1 That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. 2 Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. 3 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.” Matthew 13

(During the time I was received this word, a vision came forth of a man who was planting a seed in the ground. He was shoveling the ground around him to help plant the seed and soon I saw the plant emerge from the ground. The plant grew and grew quickly, but soon I saw that it was withering. I wondered why and then I saw that the soil that he had planted it in was very rocky. The vision then faded.) "Many things have come against my children during this time. I would say that they are on a pathway where the world could harm them if they are not closely in my spirit and in my word every day. For the things of the world press-in on every side. The world has many things that can entice you. There are many that are led down an unknown path that follow after this world.

Do not follow after the lusts of this world, for the things that it gives are not long-lasting. But seek those things that lie above. For faith, hope and love are forever. Wear them as a shield. Let them fill you with all things of my spirit.

This is why many of you do not receive the things that I give to you. It is because your soil is rocky. The things of the world have choked out the things of my spirit. But if your soil was clean and free of these things then the seeds would grow and flourish in your lives. "

You have set your glory in the heavens. 2 Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. 3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? Psalm 8

19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 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 the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God. Romans 8

(The spirit of the Lord showed me our planet earth and it was spinning around as it usually would, but then I noticed that it was like it was spinning faster and faster. The hand of the Lord was spinning it like one would spin a world globe that was attached to a base. This motion continued for a while and then it was as if the earth was held on a gyrate-type device and it was spinning around vertically and then horizontally. Then I was watching as the earth was orbiting around the sun in its usual pattern, and I noticed the other planets also orbiting as they normally would. But then one by one, each of the planets lined up in a straight line towards one another. Then the vision faded.)

"I hold the planets in my hands; all of the stars and planets are set in their orbits. Everything in all of creation, has a pattern to it. But I tell you that in these last days, those patterns will be changing. For the great mystery of the ages will cause those planets to change their orbits. For my hand has wrought these things from the beginning. I set them in the sky, each of them, so that they would create those patterns throughout the great universe.

But now this age of man is coming to an end. My great prophetic time table has set in motion those things that must be set in motion. Because man has gone another way I must change the pattern of the universe. For you will see wonders in the heavens. You will see the sea rock from its foundations. You will see unusual lights and debris falling from the heavens. It is my last display upon earth. This is the year of great displays in the heavens. This is the year of unusual occurrences. This is the year to behold the majesty of your Lord.

For creation was my masterpiece, but man is my workmanship. The rumblings that you've heard in hidden places throughout the globe are but a sign that the earth is in turmoil. It is but a sign that she is about to give birth. But the glorious Sons of the kingdom are about to come forth. Those things that have been spoken about in my word; that information that speaks of these end events, is about to be unfolding before your very eyes. And I tell you that I will hasten these things. For my time table is accurate and my words are true."

11 “But as for you who forsake the LORD and forget my holy mountain, who spread a table for Fortune and fill bowls of mixed wine for Destiny, 12 I will destine you for the sword, and all of you will fall in the slaughter; for I called but you did not answer, I spoke but you did not listen. You did evil in my sight and chose what displeases me.”13 Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “My servants will eat, but you will go hungry; my servants will drink, but you will go thirsty; my servants will rejoice, but you will be put to shame. 14 My servants will sing out of the joy of their hearts, but you will cry out from anguish of heart and wail in brokenness of spirit. 15 You will leave your name for my chosen ones to use in their curses; the Sovereign LORD will put you to death, but to his servants he will give another name. 16 Whoever invokes a blessing in the land will do so by the one true God; whoever takes an oath in the land will swear by the one true God. For the past troubles will be forgotten and hidden from my eyes. Isaiah 65

"I tell you that it may seem like things are improving with the economy, but these things will be short-lived. For the roller coaster ride of 2012 is now in effect. Do not be surprised when you know of a new war starting in this year. For these are the days of judgement, says the Lord. These are the days that I have been warning you about. These are the days of crippling news that will hit your shores. For I have warned of an outside force that would hit your land. I have spoken many times about the invasion, and yet very few have heeded these warnings. Forces will be joined with other forces, and you, oh nation of America will see some of the gravest days of your nation. The ancient land of Persia will have sought aid from an outside force. For the sanctions will not work. Diplomacy will not reach their ears. For they are not willing to bargain in peaceful terms. The bloodshed in many of the streets of the Middle East will flow deeper and deeper. But I AM aware of these things. The ball has been set in motion. Brace yourselves for the coming wars and reach out to me for mercy.

The ocean depths are churning. The land's masses will change. But I stand ready to deliver those who come to me. I raise up an ensign to the people. For you will come to my high towers, would say the Lord. You will find safety and security there. Woe to those great prophets of today who speak of the wonderful things that are coming. For your words will pierce your hearts. Woe to those who have spoken in their complacency. I stand ready to let my angels do their work. I AM the God of all ages. Some know of my mercy. Some know me and trust me as their Lord. But few know me as the true God of judgment. Few know me as I AM. "

For you are yet carnal: for while there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are you not carnal, and walk as men? I Cor. 3:3

"There are many divisions among my people. I would, that you seek what you have in common. For many of the things that you argue and disagree about are not as important as your fellowship with me and one another. You split hairs about when I'm coming back. You argue and discuss things of my spirit; you dispute over things that don't matter. To be sure, you would be wise to be balanced about these things, but you elevate these things above your love for one another. You are still children in your thinking when you do these things. I tell you, what are the things that you share in common? Here are things that you should focus upon:

1. Do you agree that I arose from the dead?
2. Do you believe that I am coming back?
3. Do you believe that I have forgiven your sins by my death on the cross?
4. Do you believe that I created man in my own image?
5. Do you believe that I triumphed over death and the devil?
6. Do you believe that the entire scriptures are the word of God?
7. Do you believe that my Holy Spirit dwells within you?
Now tell me, what other issues are more important than these? What other doctrines or considerations would be elevated above these? Yes, I AM calling people to higher ground in me. Yes, I AM calling you to rise above your complacency, but the enemy has taken the opportunity to divide and conquer. Let us go onto maturity and no longer be and act like children in our thinking and faith. "

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14

"I tell you that my peace will be poured out upon my people. My peace will flow down among you, says the Lord.

For in this world you will have great tribulation, but do not fear, for I have overcome the world. The world does not know the peace that I give. They have nothing to give their minds peace. They fill it with things that they think would give them ultimate happiness and joy, but it is nothing compared to what I can give them.

For my peace will 'keep you.' My peace will sustain you. My peace will set you above the world in heavenly places. The enemy cannot take your peace away from you. He cannot manufacture this peace. He can only attempt to give you things that are temporary.

There is a place within your soul that the enemy cannot touch. For it is guarded with my Holy Spirit.

No arrow that flies by day, nor the one that goes by night, will harm you or cause you to be away from me. I am aware of your plight, and because of this, I want you to remain in my peace.

With this peace that I give, you will be set above the mountains. You will rise above your circumstances. "

8 Were you angry with the rivers, LORD? Was your wrath against the streams? Did you rage against the sea when you rode your horses and your chariots to victory? 9 You uncovered your bow, you called for many arrows. You split the earth with rivers; 10 the mountains saw you and writhed. Torrents of water swept by; the deep roared and lifted its waves on high. Hab. 3

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a river flowing from above. It cut its way through two cliffs and flowed down before. I was looking from above at it. An eagle was flying above with something in his talons. The eagle circled the scene and I saw that it was an old scroll of some type. The the scroll was unfurled and the Lord said.)

"Behold, the things of old will come once again. Those feats of great strength, those miracles that were wrought, those great spiritual giants of old, will once again, reappear on the scene. For this is the time of the Isaiahs. This is the time of the Jeremiahs. This is the time for the Samuels. For they will pour out my judgment upon the earth. They will speak only what my spirit gives to them. Their sword will pierce between soul and spirit. For the pages of my book will be opened; my spirit will be poured forth. For my forerunners have been sent for a time like this.

Desperate times call for my measures. These are times that call for my spirit to be poured out in a mighty way. For my arrows will be sent forth unto the earth. My prophetic warriors will speak and the arrows will hit the mark.

The horsemen are riding. They are soon to come upon the scene. The hourglass is waning. "

1 I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, “Come!” 2 I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.
3 When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword. 5 When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. 6 Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “Two pounds[a] of wheat for a day’s wages,[b] and six pounds[c] of barley for a day’s wages,[d] and do not damage the oil and the wine!” 7 When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8 I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. Rev. 6

"These are the beginning of sorrows. For I told you and I have warned you of these days. I have forewarned you in my word; I have made mention of these things, and yet few take heed of these things. For indeed, the days will be darker. Indeed, treachery and deceit will grow worse and worse. The love of many will wax colder and colder. Things will for a time, for a short season, show signs of improvement, but it will be short-lived. For the riders that ride upon the Apocalypse, those four riders, are soon to be unleashed upon the earth. I tell you that you have seen the horse of warfare but more is yet to come. You have seen the pale horse, and you have seen death poured out upon certain regions of the earth, but the horses have not been sent out in their supply yet. For their fury will be intense, and their retribution will be swift.

But you my people, will not be taken by surprise. You will see the smoke of their nostrils gather before you. You will watch and be ready as the hoof beats are resounding. For as they travel from north and south, and from east to west, they will tread out the wine press of my almighty fury. But I say, prepare ye my people. I say, go into your chambers to pray. For you can't stop these things from happening, but you can pray for protection from the storm.

You can pray for the cloud that goes by day. You can pray that it will engulf you. You can pray for eyes to see as Elisha saw. You can pray that you would have compassion on others. You can pray for the faith of Abraham. You can pray that you would look towards that city whose walls stand waiting for you. You can pray for the strength and courage of Gideon. For you will need all these things and more. It is the end of tradition. It is the end of complacency. It is the time for my men of renown of old to step into their rightful places upon the stage. It the time of the insight and visions of Daniel. It is the time of the wheel within the wheel.

Lightning will strike the ground. The seas will rise in their fury. The earth will crack open. But my people will take cover in the midst of the storm. Even upon the young, I will pour out my wisdom and spirit. In those days, a young child will lead them. Thus would say, the spirit of the Lord."

14 And it will be said: “Build up, build up, prepare the road! Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people.” 15 For this is what the high and exalted One says— he who lives forever, whose name is holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite. Isaiah 57

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a few people who were traveling upon a road that wound its way by a cliff. The road encircled the cliff and would go around and up to a different tier or level, thus encircling the mountain and finally reaching the destination above. The scene reminded me of some of the Old Master's paintings of the Tower of Babel, where one would see a pathway or road that encircled the structure. These people were traveling upon horses and burros, and they had all of their belongings with them as they traveled.)

"You are traveling in a difficult time this year. For I tell you, the roads ahead will not be easy ones. Many will travel long and hard on this road, but they will be given aid from above. Your destination lies with me, for all along and throughout this year, there will be many obstacles that you will have to overcome, but you are assured of your destination if you stay with me on the road.

You will have divine appointments; you will have things that "suddenly" come into your lives, for I will show you that indeed, I am working in new and in miraculous ways in your lives. You will be given strength for the journey. You will be given provision.

When the road is blocked ahead, I will move the debris so that you can safely go on. The road will not always be smooth ahead, but I will enable you to travel upon it. "

1 “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. 2 Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare. 3 Give ear and come to me; listen, that you may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David. Isaiah 55

(The Lord showed me several people who were standing before a river. Their hands were open to the heavens and then the water from the river was placed within containers for them to hold the water. The water became as gold to them and shone brightly.

Then many crowds of people ran down the mountain to get this water from the river. They came in hordes and it seemed that many would not reach the river. But a few were allowed to be there and they filled their pitchers full of water and then gave the water to the people. This revived and energized them. But now there were many, many people who were laying down seemingly asleep upon the embankment that went down to the river. Huge water containers were filled from heaven and the water was then poured out upon those who were asleep. They then woke up and in turn, went to the river to fill their own containers, and they gave water to others.)

The Lord then said:

"This is the way that my Holy Spirit works. For you may all partake of the water, and it is freely given. But I want you to give it to others. For it is a fountain springing up unto eternal life. Fill your vessels my people, but do not horde it for just yourselves.

Come to the river and fill your cups. For this water will heal and replenish. It will renew and rebuild. Take and drink all of it. "

And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day. And there was evening, and there was morning--the second day. Gen. 1

"One day leads into another. It is true that time passes as it always has, but it is also true that time is going to be accelerating at a much greater pace. People go to and fro in their lives, but few truly go to and fro with me.

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a barren tree that then went from just having branches to starting to bud and having leaves, to finally having the leaves fall off the tree. This event which would seemingly have taken months to have occurred, happened in a very short time. Next I was shown an old wooden door at the edge of a cliff. It was propped open to allow people to come in but now it was slowly beginning to shut, not allowing anyone to enter in.)

I tell you that this is the year of great acceleration. For the events outlined in scripture will be accelerating at an even greater pace. What will become of the lives of many? Where will you find answers if you don't find them in me? Be prepared, for in this year many hearts will be fearful. Guard your hearts and keep them rooted in me. "

5 Then the LORD will create over all of Mount Zion and over those who assemble there a cloud of smoke by day and a glow of flaming fire by night; over everything the glory[a] will be a canopy. 6 It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain. Isaiah 4

"My people, you are going to be needing to be spending more and more intimate time with me this year. For the sky will turn dark, the lights will appear to go out, the trials and troubles of this world will increase, but if you spend more time with me then you will be able to weather these storms.

It is not a time to get more and more involved in more activities, but it is a time to come before me and enter into deep fellowship with me. For troubles will mount. Many will lose hope.

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a dark landscape that had a sunset in the distance. Many were traveling on this road. There were men carrying all their belongings with their family. There were some on motorcycles. They were many different types of people traveling, but all of them kept moving on the road and looking ahead towards the mountains and where the sunset was.

The scene changed and I saw a family next to a campground with a fire. It was evening, and the trees in the forest overshadowed them. Now the Lord showed me the great waves of the ocean. The waves curled and swept over houses and other things. Much of this was caught-up in the waves of the ocean. I saw one of these waves that became larger and larger; it's wave curled and was sustained in its movement. It was huge to behold.

I saw a city in the distance in the evening. Lightning hit a section of it and fire broke out. Then some were burying the dead. Blankets were spread out over them, and then someone held a map and they were wondering where they should go for safety. Some went to the mountains and one of them found a home in the edge of a hill, shut the door and had chains set upon it to keep others from coming in.

Finally, I was shown several mountains and I was above them in the spirit. Much of the terrain was dark except for a section in the distance where there was light that spread out upon the mountains in the distance. Birds and particularly doves were flying to this area. It appeared to be a place of safety that was set aside. Then the vision faded.)

"This is the way that it will be. Some will find shelter, and others will flee. But I will give you special revelation as to where you will find safety in me. Stay away from the coasts. Look for places that are hidden. Go to the woods and the forests. Go to places that I will show you. There is much that is coming, but if you work together as one man then you will find the resources. Spend time with me in prayer and then sudden calamity will not surprise you. "

they are the ones who will dwell on the heights, whose refuge will be the mountain fortress. Their bread will be supplied, and water will not fail them. Isaiah 33

(The spirit of the Lord showed me an old arched stone bridge that was used to walk over between a deep chasm below. There were steep cliffs on either side and the bridge was very narrow but solid, and made of strong stones. People were beginning to walk across it. There were horses and camels with people riding on the tops of them going across to the other side. I looked below and saw that the chasm below was very deep and there were fires below. The bridge held several people as they were then going onto the other side. Then the vision faded.)

"I tell you that you have entered a new year. No longer can you go backwards. You must traverse onto the other side. For as the new year unfolds, you must set your hearts and minds for following the narrow way that I have established for you.

For many will fall in the coming year. The abyss below represents the world's system. For it will be ruled by that leader that comes; but you must go onto the other side. For the time will come when that bridge will no longer be there.

(Now I was shown the bridge again, but now it was a much narrower bridge and was now made out of ropes and wood. The bridge was now wavering and beginning to fall.)

Don't wait until the last time left. For this world rages on and its demise is set. Help others to cross. Help the weak and the fatherless to cross. For there is shelter to be found on the other side. I will establish a refuge for you, my people. Set your hearts and minds on the other side. "

19 Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.” 2 Tim 2

11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, 13 their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. I Cor. 3

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 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. Matt. 7

(This word began with a scene of a rock bridge that looks intact with some people on horses starting to walk across it. However, then the bridge began to cave-in and the entire structure fell into the river below.)

"The new year will bring many troubles to my people. Those things that have seemed to be very strong and sturdy will fall, because you have depended upon the things of man rather than me. But I AM the Rock of Ages. If you are firmly rooted and grounded in me then you won't fall. My people, many things will fall apart this coming year. Many things in the natural will fall. There are some of you who are not firmly rooted in me. The stones of a building are held secure by its foundation. Have you inspected your foundation lately?

Behold....I tell you that the foundations of this earth will be shaken. For the earth will "crack-open" in places that you think not. Watch as it separates one section of the United States from another. (Here I saw the map of the United States where I've seen it before with the Mississippi River shown.) Do you think that the foundations of the earth are secure? I tell you that they are held in the balance only by my hand. For this rift will be seen and it will develop. It will open up and swallow the earth around it. Those living in this area will be in danger. You who are secure in your own making must assess your foundation. Please consider my warnings as final. For the great separation has begun. These things are separated in the spiritual first and then in the natural. That is all for now."

"Be at peace, my people, for the enemy cannot harm you. He came to kill and destroy, but I have come to give you life and to give it more abundantly.
You know that the year ahead will be filled with all types of trouble. For this is the year of the beginning of woes. It will open up as any other year, but as the days progress the heavens and the earth will roll. Signs will be shown everywhere. You will have trouble with the economy. For as it has shown some signs of improvement, this will be short-lived. The earth will erupt; the huge monolithic plates will shift once again. The oceans will rage and the waves will once again hit your harbors. The poor will be forced to more and more places in search of food and shelter. Those instructed to build places of shelter for others will be given great insight as to the need for this. For as the world grows darker and darker my light within you will grow lighter and lighter.

Be not surprised at the firey trials ahead, for have I not warned you of this? Your members of Congress have been divided among many issues, but I tell you that this is a sign of an even greater thing. For the separation of the goats and the sheep has been going on. The great threshing fields will separate the wheat from the chaff. Those who are evil will grow even more evil, but those who trust in me will shine like the stars in the heavens. And those who have traditional "religious" practices will see that their rituals will not save them. Gone will be the days of the religions of man. For I AM looking for a people who only put their full faith and trust in me. For you see, it will only be through my spirit that you will make it through this year. For as buildings are crumbling and the economy is wavering, many people's fear will overtake them. But don't wait too long, for my Ark of Faith stands ready and is open for all.

But the enemy will cause a blindness to many. For he would have you worship reason instead of faith. His schemes will become more and more darker in the coming year, but my words within you will dispel his works.

This is a year of trouble, but it is also a year of great faith and trust in me. "

"I tell you my people, I AM here to answer your prayers. I AM here to meet all your needs. I AM the God that comes in your hour of need. I speak to those needs in your lives, and I say that I will meet them all through my Son Jesus Christ. For the wind blows hard upon my people in this hour. The wind has blown hard to shake the world and its inhabitants, but the effects of those winds have also crippled some of my people. Because some of you have looked at the winds rather than me. Am I not the maker and creator of this world? By my hand the nations fall and rise back up again. The rivers find their source in me. The winds blow at my command. So if I AM able to control the winds am I not able to meet your needs?

If a man were to go into battle would he not inquire of his commanding officer? And yet many of you do not come to me in your hour of need. You would rather go through agencies that might help you in this world. To be true, I can use these agencies, but I AM the source of all things. By my hands the food banks are filled. By my hands the shelters are given beds and clothing.

I tell you that the storehouse will be filled up again. I can work even in an economy like this. I can cause miracles to come into your lives. For the enemy would come to rob and steal, but I have come to give you life and liberty. I tell you that the battle rages even more and more in this hour. The enemy would try to steal from my people's lives, but I AM able to give back what he has stolen. I will snatch back from his hands the very things that he has stolen; but you must wage war against him. I tell you that I will send some of you right into the enemy's camp and you will storm his gates. The very gates of hell will be stormed. For as he has taken, so will he be beat back into the ground. For he will eat and swallow his own lies. The power and the anointing that is in you will cause his mists to dissipate. The fiery darts will melt.

Such are the works of my warriors in this hour. Such are the promises given to my mighty warriors. But to those of you who are my prophets, I say that you will see his strategies before they take effect. You will be like Elisha who saw what they were planning to do.

So, my people do not look at the winds in this hour. Look to me for I AM your great Provider. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

Blessed are those who weep and mourn, for they shall be comforted. Matthew 5:4

3 He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Isaiah 53

"I AM the soon and coming King. I come when man expects me least. I come at a time that you least expect. I want ALL who can come to me to come unhindered. Come, any of you. Come into my courts. I welcome the destitute and the outcast. Those of you who are grieving, come to me. Behold your King understands your plight. I care for the homeless one. You who have been estranged from your family, come back to me, for I have seen your worries. I have held your sorrow. I know of the loss and the brokenness. For it is for you that I came into this world. I will take all of those tears and I will turn them into gold for me. A new day will dawn. Instead of the loss and barrenness, I will resurrect songs of praise. For sorrow comes, but with me, your tears will turn into joy. Oh barren one, you will give birth. Oh homeless one, you will be given shelter. For I receive you all. For I was welcomed not and received not. They beheld me and turned their faces away. For I was despised and rejected, a man of sorrow acquainted with grief. So, it is because of these things that I know of your sorrow and grief. You will be lifted up on the wings of my spirit; you will be given my bread to eat. Sorrow does not last a lifetime. Nor did my people Israel suffer captivity forever. For as my people return to their homeland and their great migration is over, so will those of you who have wandered will be given back your homeland in me.

Shades of gray cover over many of my people, but just as the snow blankets the fields, so will a new day dawn. The wanderer will come home. The people left homeless will be given new bread from above. For I AM the giver of life, and I can breathe life back into the lifeless. The long treks will lead you home. The trees and the mountains will welcome you there. Remember how I worked in the past. Remember how I rescued my people out of many waters. Remember how you were held in safety from the enemy. For all throughout the ages I have rescued my people from plight. And I do these things still. I AM the God of the homeless and the hopeless."
