"I tell you that this year has been the beginning of the end. For my book is being opened that will declare the end of all things.

For your country is racing towards judgment. Nothing can stop that now. For all of the events that I have outlined in my book of Revelation are beginning to unfold.

For you have seen catastrophes with the weather. You have seen heavy drought in the states of Texas and the mid west. For these have been the beginning of woes. For your economy will stand upon the brink of collapse; and there will be rioting upon the very steps of the White House. Divisions between Republicans and Democrats will become more and more fierce. Many who have lost their homes will seek shelters wherever they can. A long cold Winter is forecast.

Your nation will become more and more hated by those in the Mideast. I tell you that I have hung on the cross for your sins but many mock at me and think that I was just a fairy tale. Many still do not think that judgment will come upon your shores. I have said again and again that China and Russia will join forces. For they have been planing in secret. Wait and you will see what unfolds in the new year. For they have talked and they have plotted to take over your government.

And yet in the midst of all these things, I will reach out to the needy. I will reach out to the homeless. But woe to those who think that they are great, for I will cause your purse strings to be cut open. Do not think that I will not take care of my own. For I will supernaturally open heaven for my saints.

Watch out for the nay-Sayers in this hour. For they say, 'Where is he who was promised to come?' They think that the world goes on as it always has.

When the great break in the earth occurs. When that rift opens up, it will surely split your nation in half. Many will lose their lives because of this, but many also will be snatched from the very fires of hell because they will believe in me through this.

These are those days I've spoken about. I want you to be ready for them."

3 With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. Isaiah 12

but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." John 4:14

"Where do you draw water from? Draw water from the deepest part of the well so that it is the purest. For the purest water comes from your deepest times with me. For there it is undefiled. There it is sparkling clean and fresh.

Where do you draw your water from my people? Where do you draw your nourishment from? For the water and the nourishment from this world will leave you empty and hollow. But mine will spring up into everlasting life.

There is nothing that will sustain you like this water. It will give you strength and wisdom for the purposes of every day. You cannot manufacture this water. Who has dug a channel for this water to flow from? Who laid out the ocean's depths? Who laid out the stars in the heavens?

The water that I give replenishes the soul. The water that I give enlightens your eyes. Learn to draw-in to my anointing. Learn to find that place where you can draw water from.

You will need this water in the days ahead. For as you travel down long and weary roads this water will strengthen and guide you. For it is even much better than the water at Cherith. For even as the prophet was fed and watered there, he didn't have the water "within" him. Learn to draw it out. For it is from my wells of salvation. "

5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. John 1

"Reach out for the stars in this hour. For these are the days that my people will come into their own. As earthquakes and natural disasters increase, so will the spirit that I have endowed each of you with.

For as the darkness increases, the power of my spirit will increase all the more. My spirit is stronger than the darkness around you. But indeed know that the darkness will increase. For towards the very end of this year your nation will stand on a teetering edge of collapse. For you were once the home of the free and the brave, but your symbol will change. I have said before that your Statue of Liberty will fall, and it will.

For as one season goes into another, and your nation strives to find a new leader, the forces of wind and change will take over. The rift that separates many will grow deeper. And natural forces will create a rift in the midwest.

For you have sunk low America. You have strayed from my original plan. I will strip you of your pride and arrogance. Your freedoms will be lost, and woe to those who call evil good. But unto my own, unto those who know me intimately and well, I tell you that I will endow you with my spirit in an increasing measure. You will know of the trouble beforehand, and you will be given favor in the midst of the storm.

These are the days. These are those days. Prepare for them so that you won't be taken by surprise. "

18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 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. 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: 1

"This is the season that many have looked into. This is the season of anticipation. The world looks in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.

Who are they, you may ask? These are those who come during these last days upon earth. For they have traveled long; they have wandered far. They are like the finest wine that I have saved to last. They have gone through many winters. They have suffered the loss of many things. They have not stood in the limelight. They know my voice better than those of the brethren.

They have been alone in the desert. They have been around you in the city. They have been shunned and esteemed not. They have been men of many sorrows. Their roads have not been filled with rosy centers, but they have always looked to the dawn of a new day.

For these are my mighty ones. I have broken them so that they might live for me only. Don't look for a Saul or someone who stands out in the crowd. For I don't look on the outward appearance.

But the minstrel will again take up his lute. The mountains will break into song yet again. For the speech that I pour forth in this hour will put all the ancient poets to shame.

For as the horsemen ride across the plain, and famine and pestilence ride upon their steeds, a song will be heard from my warriors. For their spears will"pierce the hearts of the enemy. And even though the pestilence rides on, a shout and a cry will be heard from the enemy down below. For even though he is about to pull out all of his arsenal in this hour, he has not known about these sons of mine.

For the world is giving forth its birth pangs, and even now these sons of mine are being birthed. "

This is what the LORD says: "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. But you said, 'We will not walk in it.' Jer. 6:16

"Many of you now are in a holding pattern, says the Lord. Many of you are waiting to be released from your present circumstances. You have traveled through the desert for so many times that you are now familiar with every tree and shrub. But I AM walking right beside you. I traveled these roads and I know them well.

'Come and sit at this nearby rock with me. Sit here a while that we may share some things a while.'

The world as you can see in the distance, is growing darker. There is the sound of thunder in the heavens, and many are waiting in eager expectation for what is coming next. The next season will be a season of decision. For you stand upon the brink. You await the decision that will come forth. For you will then enter into a new time frame. For the political decision will propel you into this new time frame.

The world stands in a state of unrest. Some in power in the east, plot the demise of America. Some things are said in secret that are not broadcast everywhere. For you will not be ready because you are a divided nation. You are too busy with your own controversies.

Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

37 "But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 "For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 "and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Matt. 24

"For as in the days of Noah, they were eating and drinking and giving in marriage. Those days that were then, point to the days that you are now in. For, this world is racing towards judgment. The world spins around as it ever has, but it will wobble and fall from its original course.

For you oh planet earth, have drifted far. So a cup of my wrath is ready to be poured out for you. It has been mixed with bitter herbs and they have been given because you have gone so far from my original plan for you. But those who follow after me and put their trust in me, will find that I will lead them in these days ahead. Is your house in order? Are you prepared? For as you see those things crumbling around you know that there is an eternal kingdom that is everlasting.

For the world was given a flood in the days of Noah, and I saved his family through the shelter that he built. What is your shelter in these days? Find that shelter so that when the floods come, when the torrents arise, you are found steady and steadfast in me."

"The days are coming, says the Lord. The days are coming when I will no longer keep you from the things that are coming your way. I have provided a safety net, and it has overshadowed this nation, but that safety net is being lifted.

For as the seasons change and as the days grow shorter because of the change in seasons, then know that it is a new time and a new season. For America will see this change because of the political arena and debate.

The showdown will be fierce and the political forefront will propel America into a new time and season. For as the seasons change then surely the colors of this new season will be seen as people scramble to and fro. They scramble looking for bread to eat. They scramble trying to find hope. But hope deferred makes the heart sick.

A cup is prepared for you, oh America. It is a cup filled with many things. For you say that you are rich, but I say that you are poor. For you have ignored the widow. You have ignored the plight of the homeless. You are a nation without a rudder. It is too late to return to the shore. Your compass has misguided you.

An army arises in the east. They come in a great horde. They come when you least expect them. But as they inch forward and their view is first seen on the horizon, then you will know that trouble is at your door. "

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

(This word began with a vision of seeing a man blowing a shofar. He blew it and the sound came forth and went out from the shofar. As the sound traveled it immediately went into the atmosphere and it encircled around a certain place in the heavenlies above. I looked into that area which looked like a city and then a league of horseman and angels came forth from it. They traveled very quickly and came forth to the man and spread all around. However, they were carried and sent forth by the very arm of God himself. Then the vision fade.)

" I tell you that my true prophets will play forth their song on the shofar during this season. The words that they speak will be echoed in the heavenlies above. The sound of it will travel around the globe. No more will they be held back by man. The doctrines of man are the doctrines of devils. For it is time for my true leaders to enter their realm. I will throw down the man-made church institutions. I will throw down those authoritative spirits; and the sound of it will be heard with a loud crash.

For long has my church been hindered by these things. For too long have my people been in bondage by these things. But now the long procession of the earthly leaders will find that their thrones are demolished. For I am bringing judgment into the household of God. For some who have even met in their homes, still follow the pattern that they had witnessed in the man-made institutions.

Where are you Isaiah? Where are you Samuel? I say to pick up your rod and to shake it against the churches. I say to blow your shofars as you have done it before. And then the sound of it will crack the very foundations. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

"Is it time? Is it time? Is it time to come into your own, says the Lord? Is is time to know all that I have in store for you? When will you realize that I have saved the best wine for last?

When will the mighty warriors come forth? When will the sages mark their books? When will the prophets speak the truth? When will the pastors step down from their lofty pedestals? When will the warriors be dressed for battle? When will you gather what you have planted? When will your sorrow turn into joy? When will the door behind you close? When will the new one open? When will the first become last?

The journey is coming to an end, my people. The long roads that you have traveled will meet at the juncture ahead.

When will the olive tree blossom? When will the leaves be ripe? When will they gather upon the homeland, says the Lord? For nation will rise-up against nation, and they will be gathered unto my nation Israel. And then that great battle foretold by my prophets will come. The blood will run deep in the battle. The vultures will gather, but my people will fight with me.

I the Lord, go before you. I will settle the score of what the enemy has stolen in your lives. And when the Son shines bright in your lives know that He will guide you into all things. These are the days that I have foretold of from old. Watch as the nations assemble. Watch as my clock ticks forth my prophetic time table. "

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8

"Be on your guard, for the enemy prowls around like an angry lion seeking who to devour. For many do not know of his devices. He waits to pounce when you are at your weakest. He also comes as an angel of light, so don't be deceived. For he can put on many masks and he goes around masquerading trying to persuade others. Do not be deceived for he can come in many forms and ways. He seeks to entice and to divide. He seeks to make you think that you are better than everyone else. Remain alert, stand your ground, and he will flee from you. When you least expect it he will come upon the scene. When he sees a way in then he will come. He seeks to divide and conquer. Those are his ways and that is how he has always tried to accomplish his aims.

But I tell you that a great war has been going on in the heavenlies. For Michael has been waging war with his forces. He has bound many and has bound them in the gates below. For darkness has never understood the light. And the dark dungeons have been brought back to their own again.

For he cannot stand against my warring angels. But with trickery and deceit he would seek his opportunity. These are the days of the warring angels. These are the days of the wars behind the scenes. "

See, the day of the Lord is coming—a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger —to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it. 10 The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light. 11 I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the ruthless. 12 I will make people scarcer than pure gold, more rare than the gold of Ophir. 13 Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the Lord Almighty, in the day of his burning anger. Isaiah 13

"And now it is time to enter in to the Holy of Holies. For the times are swiftly moving to the end of the age. These are those days. These are the days that many have wondered about.

Where will you be found when darkness comes? Will you be ready and will you be prepared? Will your oil be filled-up? Will your vessel stand? For I am coming when you least expect it. I am coming when no man knows the hour. Those who are not ready will be taken by surprise. For the days ahead are those that I have mentioned in my word. It will be like no other day. You think you know, but you do not know the full extent of it yet.

For those who put their faith and trust in me will be given shelter in me. I am the only that will save you on that day. For when buildings topple. When the mountains roll into the sea what will you do? Your tarot cards will not save you on that day. Your psychics will not have the answers. How would your government help?

You cannot have enough arsenal to help you. You can stockpile food and supplies but will that save you from the terror that is coming? Only those who put their faith and trust in me will be sustained. For I extended the widow's flour and oil in that day. She listened to what the prophet had said to her. It will be the time of great miracles. It will be the time of suddenlies. For when this season passes and yet another one comes, you will behold my mighty arm at work. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

For when one says, "I follow Paul," and another, "I follow Apollos," are you not mere men? I Cor. 3:4

"The in-fighting with the brethren will continue.

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a landscape filled with a huge army. All or most were on horseback and had weapons of some sort with them. A leader in front started forward going and many followed him off to the right hand of my view. They continued traveling on horseback turning back seeing where some of the rest of the army had gone. Then I saw another band of soldiers who began the same procedure except these traveled off to their left side into the hills around me. )

The Lord then said:

"This is the way that it is going to be. For some of you have decided to follow a certain leader, and because of your political beliefs, many are following you in that direction. The same is true of the other group; for you have traveled far out into the hills in the other direction. You do not know that the enemy has caused this dispersion. This has happened all throughout history. This is how many have been damaged and hurt in battle. But I say, 'Who is your commander-in-chief'? Who is the one that you should follow? I have said many times that these separations would increase. I have said that the earth would open up because of these things. For you have put political opinions above your belief in me. You have used lies and conspiracy theories to support your beliefs. You are not a United States. Will you be ready when the unslaught comes upon your shores? You say, 'I follow Apollos and others say, I follow Paul.' How can the battle be won when you are so divided? "

"Are you oh America ready for the days ahead? Are you comfortable in your homes knowing that you will always be safe? Are you ready and will you know when that day approaches?

For it will be a day of great calamity. It will be a day of darkness and grief. You think that you have been counted worthy, but you have been held in the balance and found wanting. The indications of these things are found everywhere. The extreme weather patterns are but one sign to you. The imminent approach of yet another war is another one to you. You think that because you are great that you will not fall. I tell you that Babylon the great fell. I tell you that Rome burned to the ground while the great leader Nero played his fiddle. You say, 'Would you not spare us this calamity?' You say, 'Would you not give us another chance?' You are as Hosea's wife. For your whoredom is found on every hill.

Some will flee to the mountains. Some will flee to the deserts. I have instructed some to flee to other lands. But will you be safe, you ask? Only those who put their faith and trust in me will find safety under my wings. For even as Joseph and Mary fled to Egypt to escape Herod's demand, many will do the same. You ask, 'When will these things happen?' As another season comes and goes, and yet another one is on the horizon, yet then will it begin.

Woe to those who claim that bright and beautiful days are ahead. Woe to those who put their faith in the church. Am I not the one that you worship? Woe to those who have no foundation in me. But be glad if you have found your foundation secure. The hour glass is slowly waning. The five wise virgins have their lamps ready and trimmed. Prepare, says the Lord. You are standing on the brink oh America. Thus says the spirit of the Lord."

17 I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. Romans 16:7

10 I appeal to you, brothers and sisters,[a] in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought. 11 My brothers and sisters, some from Chloe’s household have informed me that there are quarrels among you. I Cor. 1

(This prophetic word will most likely bring me a lot of flack. I expect it. I have waited and prayed about this word, but I believe I must release it. There are newscasters who state the news and don't editorialize it. I speak what God shows me even though many at times will not like what they hear, and some will speak against it. That is OK. The divisions among many believers, is going to grow deeper and deeper. I'm certain that the enemy rejoices because of this. His ways are to divide and conquer. We don't all need to agree with each; that is not possible many times; but we can at least listen and find what we share in common with each other as believers. Now you can start throwing stones at me.

"I tell you that Obama is going to be re-elected and many people aren't going to be happy about it. The nation will be split right down the middle. For there will be hatred in many extremes. Many Christians will be opposed to each other. For the stories about him will become so distorted that some will begin his assassination plot. It is all a plan to divide America. Many think that he is the evil one to come but they have not read their bibles.

(The Lord showed me a scene of the White House. I saw the face of Obama by it and then I saw an old-fashioned cannon like what was used during the Civil War. I saw a soldier beside the cannon carrying a confederate flag, and a map of the United States was shown splitting in half. It was very much like how the Civil War happened with Union soldiers on one side and Confederate soldiers on the other side. I had the sense that the division of America will be growing deeper and deeper because of the political arena.

Later on, I was redirected through the Holy Spirit about this word, and He showed me the White House again and I saw men dressed in Civil War garb again and now they were aiming their guns towards the White House. The scene changed and now those who were shooting their guns were now riding upon a carousel that typically has painted horses on it. However, the men with their guns were on their horses carrying their rifles and they were shooting the men in front of them as the carousel went around and around. Then I saw the enemy himself as he held a large globe with the carousel within it. He was the one who was orchestrating the hatred between the different groups of people. )

For the time table is set. The events will soon play out. Watch and see how America will be divided. He has taken steps that are not within my will, but he is still not the evil one who is to come. The evil one is coming out of the east. I have said that even the elect would be deceived if possible. For because of their opinions and hatred, they will be taken unawares of who is to come. This division will become so great that even the earth will split open. "

16 The Pharisees and Sadducees came to Jesus and tested him by asking him to show them a sign from heaven. 2 He replied, “When evening comes, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red,’ 3 and in the morning, ‘Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.[a] 4 A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.” Jesus then left them and went away. Mat. 16

(As many of you know Colorado Springs in particular has faced the greatest danger in its history with the fires that have destroyed many homes and shelters here and in the surrounding areas to the west of us. The newscast has continually broadcast these things and the images of burning shelters and people fleeing from their homes in panic, brings it real close to home, literally. We do live in perilous times and the clock is ticking and approaching the midnight hour of earth's final days. These things are but a taste I believe, of what is to come. While we are greatly saddened and struck dumbfounded by these events, God has a purpose in mind even as the fires rage in one area of the country, and floods occur within another one. I'm wondering if we'll ever realize that God indeed is trying to get our attention. Please remember those who have been displaced because of these things. Pray for America and Colorado. )

"I tell you that the upheavals that you are seeing in the earth are a sign to you. For indeed, I AM trying to get your attention. The fires in Colorado and the flooding in other places point to this. I don't desire that anyone would perish. I don't long to see people fleeing their homes, but the times are slowly changing.

For sin has run rampant. People have sought other gods. They have made them in their own making. This has always been the case. For I tell you that these things that are happening are but a taste of what is to come. Woe to those who say that only good things are coming. Woe to those who speak lies in my name.

For ocean waves will lap against the coasts. America you stand upon the brink of much. For will you listen when the warning comes? I do not bring destruction to destroy my people. These things come so that I can save my people. Come to me and see if I will not save you. But many waited to come into the ark that was built, and because of that they perished in the flood."

The Lord then said:

"These people won't change because of everything that has happened. They will go back to their lives as usual. The world will go on as it always has with many carrying on their lives as usual.

For you all are entering into a new time frame. For this world is taking on greater and greater birth pangs. The United States will change its appearance."

14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

"You have heard of the catastrophes......You have heard of the warnings.....I call forth a wake-up call to all of America. For things are going to get more and more difficult. The beautiful homes of many will fall to the ground. The riches of the wealthy will be taken from them. For even your country oh America, will be split into sections. You will no longer be one United States.

(The spirit of the Lord first showed me a scene of America. As I looked at it, I saw the state of California separate from the rest of the country. It was split off from the rest and began to sink. I then saw Texas split off from the rest of the country. A huge chasm or gulf was now in the middle of the United States and was very deep and wide. This separation widened and debris was in the middle of it. It looked like lava.)

Seek me with your whole heart, and see if I will not save you from the day of judgment. I haven't wanted to see a nation fall; but you hang in the balance. How else can I get your attention? But even when there is burning, even when there is great devastation, even when there are catastrophes all around you, many of you still will not call upon me.

Even your spiritual leaders have their heads buried in the ground. Even your clergy are mute to the things around them.

Throw away your tarot cards. Don't listen to your psychics. For they can't give you the answers. But if my people would humble themselves and pray then I would heal this land. "

But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: Phil. 2:7

"These are the days that many have wondered and have looked into. When you see sex offenders that were once held in high esteem you know that this world is racing towards judgment. For I tell you that many that are held in high honor often lead a double life. But I tell you that nothing hidden will not be disclosed. For I will uncover the dark deeds of high officials.

Who is the man that I esteem? It is he that humbles himself and considers himself to be nothing in the sight of man. For I came into this world and many thought that I was a great king of this world. They wanted me to set up my own kingdom. But my kingdom is not of this world. For I have asked you to be nothing to be great in my eyes. For to be great you must empty yourself. I took on the role of a servant. I came to wash the feet of many.

For if you see some building their own kingdoms know that it is their own 'man-made schemes.' Their work will be seen, and the day of judgment will declare it. For there are many ministries in this world that will fall. For their kingdoms will topple because their foundations weren't built upon me.

See that your house is set in order. For the winds are about to blow stronger and stronger upon this nation."

8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” John 3

"The wind blows and no one knows where it comes from. The same is true of my spirit, for the spirit comes forth in waves of glory. It springs forth as the ocean waves. My throne sends forth my waves of glory.

For in these days my spirit intercedes on behalf of my saints. For even when you are torn and twisted; even when you have been assailed by the things of this world, my spirit will come as the mighty wind. For no one has seen the wind. No one has seen my spirit, but you see the effects of it.

For all will be revealed. In these days I will cause the lame to walk. In these days my spirit will be poured out upon dry land. My wisdom will be given where needed. And once again, my men of renown will come upon the scene. Great feats will be done. For I will cause blind eyes to be opened. For these are the days that many have longed to see. Cease from your divisions. Cease from those things that divide you.

My spirit will guide you into all truth, even when many around you are being deceived. And even so, a great army is coming. For these are the days that point to those things that I have outlined in my word. For a great army will surround my holy land. The battle will be bloody, but in the end the heavenly hosts will prevail.

You are on the edge of many things, my people. But don't turn back. for I will give you my strength and wisdom for the days ahead. "

1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 1 Timothy 3:1-5, 13-16

"I wait for the Lord, more than watchmen for the morning.
In the morning everything is new. Everything is new from the day before. For with the rise of a new day, the sun comes up, the trees are lit, and the morning begins.

All nature sings to the risen King. The mountains declare my glory. The rivers pulse with my life. New life is seen as it 'springs forth.' For from generation unto generation, I have separated the day from the night----a time to rest and a time to work. So has it been since I have created this world. For the birds find their home in the trees. The wild beasts roam upon the land, and man is given a spirit to understand who he is in relation to the other things that are upon the earth.

But man has drifted far from my design. He has ignored me. He has tasted of the forbidden fruit again and again. Oh, that you would learn of my creation! Oh that you would see how I have designed her! For all nature cares for her young. There is a pulse and a song to life. Learn of the diligence of the ant. Learn of the wild beasts. For even the great elephants mourn for their young.

I have said that in the last days perilous times would come. For those days have come. The foes would be those of your own families. The love of many would wax cold. and there would be a form of religion but they would deny the power of it. I have also said that you must forsake all others except for me. My arms are still open to a world of disobedient children. I would welcome you back as the prodigal son, but I see that you are not returning home. "

"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

"These are the days of my promises being fulfilled, says the Lord. These are the days when you see the fruits of your long waiting. For I will give back to you all the things that the enemy has stolen.

For it has been stolen from you; but I AM the God of promises. These are days that demand great faith. These are days when you must rely upon me alone. Nothing else will save you in this hour, but me alone.

I will settle the score, for I AM the LORD your God. The farmer waits for the rain, and I tell you that my spirit will replenish. I tell you that I will cause those things to grow in your lives that you thought were withering away. For I AM the God of promises. "

(This message began after listening to Cat Steven's song, "Where Do the Children Play?")

"It is very true, for in a world such as this, there is very little room left for the children to live in a safe world. For with all the violence, with all the in-fighting, with all the violence in the streets, your children are left to their own devices in this hour.

With what would you compare this generation? How would you conclude its success? For they once were found but now they are lost.

Who would be their heroes, says the Lord? Who would give them direction? For their heroes are those whom I have not chosen. But have they been abandoned? Have they been left behind? For they seek heroes among the fallen. They search the planet only to find that those who once were heroes are now greedy for unjust gain.

For I tell you I will provide for the children of this generation. Even though their heroes are gone, I will provide a place for them. For I have said that you must enter the kingdom of heaven as a little child. Who are their teachers? Where have the role models gone? Are there none left? You oh America have fallen. For in your search for freedom, and for your search for happiness, you have forgotten about the future. You care only for the moment. You have not considered the future for your children. "

The Mountain of the Lord--Isaiah 2 2 This is what Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem: 2 In the last days the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and all nations will stream to it.

"Those who go up to the mountain and pray seek a way along the mountain paths. Though the way is rocky and steep, you can find your way.

There is a way that is marked out for you. It lies amid the bushes and streams there. Though for many years it may have become obscured, you will remember the way. Seek the way that is hidden in the valley below. For it is time to find holy ground. As my servant Moses went up the mountain, now I ask of you to find that way, so that you might pray.

For there is need of the fire within you to be rekindled again. There my tablets were given. There my law was written not by human hands, but by my spirit.

For I would again write upon human hearts. For in these days there is a need for human hearts to hear the word of the Lord. For these are the days written down long ago by my prophets. These are the days that they looked intently into my word about. For there is need to seek me more than any time in history. For who would they listen to in this hour? Who would speak from the mountain tops? Who would share from a heart of wisdom? For the mountains will quake. Fire will fall down from heaven. But greater still, will be the fire that is forged within the hearts of my servants in this hour. For even though great judgments are coming, even though the seas will rage, my coals of fire will be upon the lips of my servants.

Be at peace, for even in a raging storm I can keep the winds at bay. For greater still is my spirit to be given out in this hour. I have said that the latter house would be greater than the former one. "

"I AM"

May 20, 2012

"In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. I Am that I AM. I AM represents all that I AM. I AM before all things and in all things. Before the world was and everything in it, I AM, because I dwelt there before eternity.

Eternity is the realm where I reside. Eternity never began and it will never end. You oh man, live in a finite world. Your mind cannot comprehend these things except through my spirit. In the beginning when I created the heavens and the earth, I wanted to show my love through my creation. I chose a place in the beginning where man and woman could reside, but sin entered in and altered my original plan. Even though this was my ultimate plan, I knew that man would fall. Before the creation of man I knew that he would fall. For you see through a mirror dimly but at that time when we should meet, you will know as you are now known. For there are many things that are hidden that will be revealed later.

It was in my ultimate plan of salvation that my son would walk this earth and die for your sins. Many do not grasp the full extent of what he has done for you. For many of you still carry your own crosses and sin. For he carried everything for you. And what he shed for you, he shed for eternity and all. But many of you want to do it your own way. You think you have your own plan for salvation. You think that you have found a way through your intellect and other religions and the philosophies of man. The time will come when you will see that these are just 'hollow things.' You will see that they are just cleverly disguised myths. You see, the prince of the power of the air has cleverly blinded many. Many do not realize that the battleground is their mind. But he cannot touch you if you remain in me. He has never understood the light, and you are the light; but you are not a light unto yourselves, and the light did not originate with you. For you cannot manufacture my light. You cannot as those in the east do, empty yourselves of all things, and then reach the light on your own. I give the light unto you, and then it is within you. So know that I AM bringing you all unto myself. The great separation has begun. The lines of demarcation will become more and more distinct. But know that I AM. "

You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel. Matt. 23:24
"Why do so many of you dispute about minor things? You strain a gnat instead of dealing with the primary issues at hand. Because of these things, many of you are divided.

You dispute about head coverings. I tell you that you are no better than the Pharisees were. You try to follow the letter of the law rather than the heart of the message.

Will you forsake your petty arguments and follow after me rather than following after the teachings of man? I will tell you, I will judge you according to the standards that you have set. Then if you break even the least one of these you will be judged for breaking the entire law.

Those of you who follow after certain principles of these have set themselves up as the judges of men. But if you follow the heart of my message then there is freedom. Choose this day, would you rather live in chains, or would you rather live in the spirit which gives freedom?

so is my word that goes out from my mouth:It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desireand achieve the purpose for which I sent it.12 You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Isaiah 55

"Come into the courts of my sanctuary, my people. Go beyond the altar. Go beyond the candlesticks. Go beyond the prayers of incense. Enter in...I AM here beyond all that you see. I await for my people to enter in. I will satisfy you with good things. They who have gone up to Mount Zion would come into my sanctuary. For I have rent the curtain for you to come and enter in. I would speak to you of things from my spirit. I would long to give you a melody of your hearts. Even as David played a harp before me, so will your praise be unto me.

I pour forth my speech from one generation unto the next. For as in ancient times I chose only a select few, but now, unto many would I pour forth my spirit. For where there is no illumination, where there is no light given, I would now show you the way. I would say unto you, this is the way, walk ye in it. For I will remove the roadblocks from your way, says the Lord. I will open doors that no man could open, and I will close doors that no man could close.

For many of you, says the Lord, have walked down long roads looking for the roads that I have for you. You have journeyed far and wide, you have sought me as in a dry land, and now I say that the trees will bow down before you. For everything that I have promised, even from many years past, will now come into fruition. You will see the way that is clearly marked out for you. For you are my people, and I AM your Shepherd. My rod and staff they will comfort you when the days grow dark. For I have called you for a time like this.

So now seek the highway that is before you. Walk as my prophets of old have walked. Walk as my men of renown have walked. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

13“But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears,He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. 14“He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. 15“All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you. John 16

"The doors are open to my spirit; they are open to all who would come in. Who would come in and sup with me? I have all things to give to my children. When you come to sup with me then I will tell you things that are to come.

For nation has raged against nation. The earth has shook in many places. There is violence in the streets like never before. Your monetary system is about to crack down.

Do you think that these are not signs? But now the very foundations of the earth will shake. Those places that you think would not shake will shake. The earth will reel and rock. The one doomed for perdition will arise soon. For he has been working in the background, building his plan and waiting for the right moment.

The church system has been lulled to sleep. Where have the true worshipers gone to? But the eagles will soar in this hour. They will survey the land, and they will speak and give my words. "

4 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains. Matt. 24

"The world is spinning around and around as it always has, but in these coming days the world will take on a different appearance. The world will change because of the developments in the earth. For the earth's crust will split open in various places. For the earth is in travail.

The mountains will quake and the seas will roar. On that day where will you run to? For this will be the time of unnatural occurrences. For there is a network of fault lines that lie hidden under the United States. When one is triggered then the others will follow.

But with all these things coming those who have their ears tuned to my spirit will go forth speaking my word and releasing those who have been in captivity. For surely, you were made for a time like this. The men of renown will take their rightful place in this hour. My spirit will be poured out unto the masses. For when trouble comes and devastation hits the land, you will need my spirit to guide you through those days.

I will always provide a way out for my people. My ways are not your ways. But I AM the maker of heaven and earth and my original design has gone astray, and because of this, judgment must come. "

"Very few have a vision for the world they live in. Very few look beyond the world they see in front of them. Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things NOT SEEN. For we see with our natural eyes, but to be linked with me, I ask you to look beyond the mundane world that is in front of you.

For there is a panoramic world in front of you. There is a new dawn awaiting you. Just beyond the distant hills and around the next bend, there lies a new day for you. For beyond the horizon, and through the next glade of trees, I have promises of a new day. For we hope for what we do not see, and the hope that I give to you will never

disappoint you. For that hope is bathed in my infinite love for you. For the plans that I have for you are for your good. My plans are based upon my vision for you. They are rooted in my ultimate plan for you. But in order for you to be in this plan for you, you must stay on the road that I have prepared for you. You must not veer off of it. For if you do then you will not meet your destination. If a train veered off onto another track it would surely end up at a different place. These things are seen in the natural, but they are equally true in the spiritual as well.

So get back on the path that I have for you. Stay on it for it is paved with my intentions. "

"Why do the people follow the politics of a nation rather than me? Many are swayed like the wind by conspiracy theories. For I tell you that a great civil war is coming; in fact, it is already on the rise. Those who would say otherwise are deluded in their thinking. For the great rift has begun. I have said many times before that these things would be seen in the spiritual first.

For now you will have brother against brother divided over national politics. Your troubles oh America, go much deeper than politics. For in your hypocrisy you still think that a white man is better than a black man. You are a Pharisaic nation! I would spew you out of my mouth for your hypocrisy, but I have waited to see if you truly had any compassion.

The great rift has begun. And because of this great rift, the earth will crack open as well. It will crack open where you least expect it. For people will be hanging on either side of this gulf. They will scramble to safety, but some will have fallen to no safety. Things are going to get uglier. Divisions will have deepened. Put your petty political debates aside. Put me first rather than a candidate. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord. "

1-2 There was a man from the tribe of Benjamin named Kish. He was the son of Abiel, grandson of Zeror, great-grandson of Becorath, great- great-grandson of Aphiah—a Benjaminite of stalwart character. He had a son, Saul, a most handsome young man. There was none finer—he literally stood head and shoulders above the crowd! 1 Sam 9:1-2 So it was, when they came, that he looked at Eliab and said, “Surely the Lord’s anointed is before Him.” But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” So Jesse called Abinadab, and made him pass before Samuel. And he said, “Neither has the Lord chosen this one.” Then Jesse made Shammah pass by. And he said, “Neither has the Lord chosen this one.” Thus Jesse made seven of his sons pass before Samuel. And Samuel said to Jesse, “The Lord has not chosen these.” 1 Sam 16: 6-10

"For these are the days of my new builders of my kingdom. Gone will be the super-stars. Gone will be sensationalism. For the present ministry of the 'great apostles and prophets' are ending. For these have been the Sauls. But just as David was chosen as a simple shepherd boy I AM now about to usher in a new breed of apostles and prophets.

For they won't seek the glory or the limelight. They don't seek to be established. The torch is being passed. But even so, few will even notice the change of the crossing guard. For many in the church still follow after these great men of renown. Just as Saul was a head taller than other men, so have these great leaders of the church have been.

But I don't look on outward appearance. I choose what I see in the heart, says the Lord. For you see, the church has taken on the visage of the world. Even those things that once began in the spirit, have now gone astray. For they have not followed the plumbline. They have gone off into strange and unusual teachings. And because many have had a 'great name' then many flock to hear them. But I AM bringing down their kingdoms, says the Lord. For what was once laid as a firm and solid foundation now has their costly gems and stones added to it. I AM calling unto you, my David's. I AM calling to you far and wide. Come to me, says the Lord. Come from your homes. Come from your desert places. Come unto your rightful places. For you were made for such as time as this. Forsake the worldly splendor. Shake-off the glory that other men seek.

Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

10 See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. 11 For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this. How can I let myself be defamed? I will not yield my glory to another.Isaiah 48

"Where have all the Daniels gone? Where are those who stood before kings and interpreted their dreams? Where are those who have searched into the times and seasons to know what lies ahead? Where are those who have insight into the mysteries of my kingdom?

For I tell you, many of my prophets have become dull in their hearing. Many have their ears 'muffled.' Many of their words are obscured by the things of this world. So I AM taking some of you back into my training ground again. I AM taking some of you back so that I can forge your weapons and refine them.

For the furnace will forge those things. The heat will make them molten. And when I AM done shaping and renewing, your weapons will once again, be ready for battle. For some of your words have not hit the mark. Some of them have fallen to the ground and they have not brought about my full intention to its hearers. And some of you have lacked real true discernment.

You have just swallowed everything. Not everything that is said produces health to the bones, But then when maturity comes, you will grow up into the full image of my son, and then your weapons will be fully formed, and your words then will be like Samuel's. "

25 "Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 6Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? 28"So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;29and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Matt. 6

"What is there in this life to keep one satisfied? Why are people always hoarding-up for tomorrow?

Many think that their riches will save them from the problems that are coming. Have I not said to not seek these things upon the earth? For your heavenly father knows of your needs. Have I not said that the lilies of the field are arrayed like nothing else, and that even Solomon in all his glory did not possess the beauty like these? Why must you run after these things, my people? You cannot serve two masters. For you will either hate one; or you will find that they are always in conflict. Learn to be satisfied with what you have. Godliness with contentment is a great gain. You brought nothing into this world, and you will leave with nothing as well. But that does not mean that I cannot satisfy your needs and give you shelter from the storm. For I know of your needs, says the Lord. I know the names of each of my children. I know the plight that each of you has gone through. And on the road ahead I will extend my arm of protection. I will remove the obstacles. And even though the days are dark ahead I will bring promises to you, and turn tribulations into blessing. "

(I've been feeling rather discouraged today because of not having a regular income and wondering about things in general. In my quiet time the Lord shared these thoughts that I think are good for all of us to consider.)

"Is there anything that I cannot do, says the Lord? Are there any emergencies that are too difficult to handle? Can I not supply bread to the eater?

Where are the heroes? Can I not take the despised things of this world and turn them into something great for me?

I AM the God of all things, says the Lord. When trouble comes your way, I provide a way for you to work through it. Nothing formed against you shall prevail.

You don't know where the wind comes from, and yet by the wind, great ships are steered in the right direction. And so like the wind, you can't see trouble or promise come before it happens. All of my servants before you experienced troubles, and even those with great insight and wisdom had moments of weakness and travail.

Rivers flow from the sea and back unto it again. They gather the debris and ground around them, and these things are washed and cleansed through the rivers. And my spirit takes the things of this world and carries those sins and debris and makes you as white as snow again.

Are you not all a vessel for me? Some for ignoble and others for noble uses? And each one of you as vessels will fill my heavenly mansions.

When you go on up to the mountain to pray, let go of those things that hinder you. For hidden sins and grievances will weigh you down. "

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. Amos 8: 11-12

"Many of the streams have dried up and they can't hear the true word of the Lord. Many in the body of Christ don't have fresh water to receive from. For the desert has become the norm for some.

For there are cracks and the desert floor is dried up. This is the state of many in the body of Christ in this hour. For you haven't heard a new and fresh word from the Lord in a long time. You're too concerned about having prosperity. You're too concerned about hearing what your pastor has to say. You're too concerned about political agendas. If you would but find a quiet place so that you could hear my voice, then the land would be refreshed.

But you would rather flock to hear this speaker. You would rather go to this conference. My people, when will you just hear my voice for yourself? There is coming a famine in the land, and it won't be a famine like any other. It will be a famine for hearing the word of the Lord. Come out of them my people; come out so that you can hear my voice. "
