The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone. Isaiah 9:2
"There is to be no more wondering about the days that you are living in. For my spirit is working among the peoples of this earth. I am pouring it out in a mighty way. I am pouring it out on young children. I am pouring it out on the young and the old alike.

And even so, as I am pouring out my spirit, the world looks out for a Savior. The world looks out for someone who would deliver them. For many see a world where murders take place every day, and even ever hour. Many see a world where darkness has spread and has blanketed the globe.

For now in these days, darkness has spread to such an extent that it now has become commonplace. And many have mistaken the darkness for the light. For as the darkness spreads across the globe, it has obscured the light that was once held out by many. But there are to be seen certain pockets of people where the light has penetrated the darkness. Here the illumination of that light has spread. And in that light many will be given hope.

But even so, the darkness spreads more and more. It spreads like a mist across the land; and it has entered into the hearts of some. For it spreads to certain leaders across the globe. And the time will come when it will enter into the hearts of two very powerful leaders. For their diabolical schemes are to overthrow the people of the United States. For even as you see them smiling and shaking hands, they are thinking other things. For when you are dealing with ISIS other developments are taking place.

And then as the darkness grows in intensity, the light seen in these certain pockets, will become more immeasurably important. Then it will penetrate the darkness. Then the schemes of the enemy will be found out. "

For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. I Cor. 1:26

You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me. Psalm 139:5

It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Deut. 31:8

(This word was given for a particular person, but I believe that it is also for many. For many of us have walked down roads thinking that we were always alone or forsaken. But the Lord has been there always walking beside us.)

"For as much as I came into this world to save men and women, I came to seek and save the lost. Not many of you were of noble birth. Not many of you came from a regal past.Very few were kings and queens. But I chose the things that man did not recognize.I came and chose my own. I say this day, 'You are chosen by me.' For in years past you wandered alone. But I say even now, 'You are never alone.' For there have been many lonely roads that you have traveled. But see, that I have walked there beside you. For the lonely roads were not meant to be lonely. For you didn't know that I was always there with you. You walked thinking you were always alone. For I was alone when I walked this earth. I walked in places where no man had tread before. I was led to the slaughter and I thought that I was utterly forsaken. I thought that the Father had forsaken me. But I was never alone, even on the cross. For even though my life was cut off from the living, I was given a new body and life for many. I had thought that the Father had forsaken me, but he hadn't.

So you see, I have gone before you. I understand the journey that you are on. And even during those times when you feel utterly alone and forsaken, remember me and what I went through for you. And then you will be raised up with me. Then you will see me on the road with you. Then you will realize that I walked many of these roads with you. "

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you? James 4

"Do you think that a new season and a new time is coming to the government and the White House? I tell you that I raise up leaders and I take others down. People have looked to politics rather than to Me.

Do you not know that the only government that will be true and just will be when I set up my kingdom? For many look to a certain brand of government as the answer. Many because of their preconceived ideas think that a new season will come, but I tell you that you have put your hope in government. Has there ever come a time when the government has ever given you all the answers for your life?

Many have prayed for a change to come, and I tell you that a great change is in store. But it is not the kind of change that you would want. For because of the great sins in this nation; because of your trust in your own arms; because of your trust in a new leader, your nation will be utterly brought to its knees.

You say that you have prayed for healing. You say that you have prayed for the corruption in end in the government. But with your very words of saying these things your hearts are unjust and impure. You rally for one man against another, and yet the very ones you vote for are impure. None of them are righteous in my name, says the Lord!

And because of your pretense and self righteousness, your nation will experience more and more divisions. For you are a divided United States. You who go to church on Sunday and sing your songs to Me, are far from Me in many ways. Do you take care of the poor? Or do you look down upon those who come into your church assemblies dressed in shabby clothes?

I tell you that the shaking has just begun, and the threshing floor will be filled with its grain. Get ready people of God, for your churches will be shaken! Everything that can be shaken will be shaken. And when everything continues to be shaken, then perhaps I will find a people of humility. Perhaps when you are brought to your knees time after time then perhaps your petty excuses and opinions will be gone."

And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground. 1 Samuel 3:19

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. Isaiah 55:11

"My ministers of flames I say to rise up in this hour. For your words will become like piercing arrows in the hands of your maker. For you will hit the targets one by one. Your words will become like Samuel's, for none of them fell to the ground.

The words from those who pretend to be mine, will lose their effectiveness. For they will go out from their arms, and they will curve out into another direction. This is the hour of the true marksman. This is the hour of my flaming spirits who have unsheathed their arrows. For one by one, I have given them these arrows; and they have gone out into the earth. They will not return unto me void, but they accomplish what I have sent them out to do.

I will keep your quivers full, and I will trim those arrows. For each one of them has been hand-made by me. They all have their purposes and they all have their directions. For some have been sent out right into the enemy's camp, and they have penetrated the walls of his dark cathedrals. Some have gone out and they have torn down strongholds in the church. Some have gone out and they have delivered many from the snares of the devil. And some have been shot out into the future. For they have been shot out and they have traveled far; they have gone past the trappings of religion. They have gone past the shorelines, and they have seen a time when this country would come under attack. And their flight has gone even further still. For it has traveled through various lands and it has uncovered a time when some work together as one man,forging a way in the wilderness, when the cities have been emptied, when the earth has cracked open, and the great lakes have flooded the land.

Each of these arrows has a mission. Each of these arrows has a course. And each of them will arrive at their destination. Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord."

3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Isaiah 53

“I have been working with many of my anointed ones in this hour. Many have been brought through some very severe trials. Many have been misunderstood and persecuted. Some have lost things dear to them. I tell you, in the coming months many will have been brought to their knees. For they will have been emptied of everything. And this is to show forth my glory. For when you become as nothing then my Spirit can be all in you. For your faith is made perfect through these trials.

For my eye is upon those who have suffered loss. My eyes are upon those who have been poured out like ointment at my feet. For Mary Magdalene came and poured oil upon my feet. Many of you have been poured out. You have given and you have given. You have been poured out in many ways. But I will now take that vessel and I will fill it with my beautiful of ointments. So that it would be rich; so that it would be a savoring ointment to all.

For many of you are the “hidden ones.” The world does not see you but I see you. And those who are seemingly without a Shepherd, I carry you. When the world is dark; when you are without hope, I will make you my queen. When you are fatherless, I will be your father.

To the persecuted ones, I say that I AM your redeemer; for I was afflicted on every side. I was counted as nothing. I was struck down, and I was counted as those who were forgotten. Many esteemed me not, and looked away in shame at me. So, I walked these roads before. And I have gone before you, and I have caused you to triumph.”

I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Rev. 3:8
Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy. John 16:20
35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. John
4:35 The LORD goes out like a mighty man, like a man of war he stirs up his zeal; he cries out, he shouts aloud, he shows himself mighty against his foes. Isaiah 42:13
"I AM coming; I AM coming. I AM coming to dwell with my people. For I AM going to dwell with them in a new way, says the Lord. For no longer will you look to the right or to the left; no longer will you look for Me around the corner. For before you ask, I will be there.

I AM laying aside crowns for some of you in this hour. For some of you have endured hardship after hardship. And those weepings; those times of deep travail, are going to reap their rewards. For I will turn your sadness into deep joy for Me. For you will go out into battle with a new song. You will look back upon previous seasons. You will look back upon all those dreams that were unfulfilled. For now they are going to be fulfilled. Where once there were closed doors now they are opening for you.

For it is a new season ahead. The pages of my book unto you have now opened up into a new chapter. You were not ready for this chapter before. For every season has a time and a purpose. And I tell you that I will lift up my warriors in a new way in this hour. Those who have fought long and hard with the enemy will now find that their swords are much sharper. But now I see many with bowed heads observing their King. For there are times when you must rest from your labors. Look around and see that many have joined with you in this battle. In the days ahead, my precious warriors, your swords will meet the enemy head on. For you fight a battle that is necessary in pulling down the strongholds.

(The Spirit of the Lord showed me the King of Kings. He rode upon a white stead. He held a bright golden staff and a crown of many crowns was upon his head. He marched at the front of a large army. He turned his head to the rear, and I noticed that he was plowing a field as it were. He laid out a fertile field all green and lush. Where once before there was a rocky and desolate land, now it was carpeted with green, and those behind him came following him.)

For I AM the Commander-in-Chief, says the Lord, and I AM making the land a fertile field before you. I AM leveling the playing field. I AM changing the field before you so that you can win souls. But in this field you will also be able to triumph over the enemy. “
