16 Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. I Peter 2
Pure religion and undefiled before our God and Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. James 1:27
"You stand at the threshold. For this nation that was once called the land of the free and the home of the brave, but now you have drifted far from the shore. For you have accepted many things, and because you have accepted many things, your land will be vanquished.
You say, 'We have these freedoms. We have these freedoms to live however we want to.'
But I tell you that soon, those freedoms will all be taken away from you. But to those who have lived according to my statutes and laws, I will preserve you and keep you safe on the day of judgment. But my statutes and laws are the laws of following after me. I have come to give you liberty but that liberty is not to be used to perform sinful acts.
The Son has come to set you free, and not to be conformed to the world's standards. I have asked you to love the unlovely. I have asked you to lay your lives down for your brothers and sisters. But many of you strut around like peacocks. For you think that you are somehow entitled. Your pride and arrogance has blinded you to the truth of many things. You are so quick to run after the newest conspiracy story, instead of inquiring of me.
You have your bandwagon of causes, but your causes are not my causes. Are you any better than those that you point your fingers at? Wash yourselves at my river, and I will make you clean. Otherwise your righteousness will rot in the sun."
"I AM BEYOND THE PAGE"
June 16, 2015
'Go and say to My servant David, 'Thus says the Lord," Are you the one who should build Me a house to dwell in? For I have not dwelt in a house since the day I brought up the sons of Israel from Egypt, even to this day; but I have been moving about in a tent, even in a tabernacle. "Wherever I have gone with all the sons of Israel, did I speak a word with one of the tribes of Israel, which I commanded to shepherd My people Israel, saying, 'Why have you not built Me a house of cedar?'"' (2 Samuel 7:4-7).
"Those who worship me in spirit and in truth know me a I AM. Many know about me, but they don't know me personally.
Some have read and studied about me. They have gone to seminaries and universities to understand me better. But you cannot understand me in this way. You can read all of the books in the world. You can delve into ancient manuscripts. You can study the lives of the early church fathers. But studying, and reading all of this, will not bring you closer to me.
For I AM beyond the page. I reign in the hearts of men and women who sit at my feet to learn of me. You can learn about me through those who teach and preach, but you will not know me as I AM until you have sat at my feet.
Why must you elevate certain men in the pulpit? For they only speak of me. And why do you honor the building instead of me, says the Lord? I do not reside in your buildings. Do you think that Isaiah or Jeremiah had to go to a building to find me? Do you think that Nathan or Malachi found me in your palaces of stone?
The wind blows as it would, and so, my spirit blows as it would. And I will come to you in the night watches. I will come to you even when you are not seeking me. For I reside with my Father, and yet we are one. Don't seek me in a building. Seek me as I AM, beyond time and space."
"WILL YOU COME INTO THE ARK ON THAT DAY?"
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross. Colossians 1
Then the LORD said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you are righteous before me in this generation. Gen. 7:1
"My spirit is being poured out. It is poured out to all who would receive me. But only a few receive me as I AM. For I AM the living expression of my Father. For it is written that, 'No one comes to the Father except through me.'
No one has seen the living God, but you have seen his expression in me. For I AM the first born among the brethren. I was here at the beginning, always alongside my Father, working with him as One.
Who has seen and who has known? For I AM he whom you seek. The one that you seek will finally come to his temple. Many came to rejoice when they saw me in the flesh. But greater is he who has not seen, but believed.
I have asked many of you to come unto the ark in these days. For it won't be long before the world's conditions come to such a peak that many will have wished that they would have come into it.
And now, some of you wonder what type of ark I would have. It would be the type of ark not made with gopher wood, but it would be the living expression of my Son who was poured out as a ransom for many.
For his precious wings will protect you on that day. They will enfold all around you. When the mountains crumble to the sea, and when the earth shakes all around you, then the doors to that ark will swing wide open for you.
For everything that can be shaken will be shaken. And judgment has begun first at the household of God. But woe to those who would not come into the ark. Woe to those who think that they sit in safety. Woe to those who think that they are safe in their homes of timber and rock. For a great tsunami is coming. It will tear at the homes and the coastlines on the east. It will come unexpectedly to those on the west coast as well. You cannot fortify your homes enough. You cannot strengthen your skyscrapers and bridges enough.
Where will you flee to on that day? I tell you that you can run to the everlasting arms of my Son. For he will open wide the doors to the ark. On that day you will know that these things are true."
"THERE IS NOTHING HIDDEN THAT WILL NOT BE MADE KNOWN"
17 For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light. Luke 8
"There is nothing hidden that will not be known. I know the secrets of men's hearts. What you say, and what you harbor in your hearts against another, is known by me. There are so many voices crying out to you in this world around you. There are so many things spoken that you hear about from your favorite minister, from your favorite news report, and yet, what have you heard from me?
You say, 'Surely this person has the answers.' Do you not know that ALL will be held accountable for what they say? You are a foolish people when you follow after a man. For I know the secrets of men's hearts. I uncover those things that have been covered up for years.
In this hour I have been shaking my church. Many are leaving the churches. For much of my body has become like a business. Many have tried to silence my true prophets in this hour. But I tell you that the truth in them will shake the very walls and the foundations of my church.
Pastors, it is high time that you relinquished much of your control to them. Step down from your mighty altars and allow my spirit to do its work in your midst. For my body has become divided into my different factions and groups. It has become splintered. But I tell you that the shaking will continue. And I will shake until there is nothing left to shake! "
"THE MUSTARD SEED OF FAITH"
June 3, 15
20 And Jesus said unto them, “Because of your unbelief; for verily I say unto you, if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, ‘Remove hence to yonder place,’ and it shall remove. And nothing shall be impossible unto you. Matt. 17:20
"I tell you that I am in the business of renewing my people's faith in me. For even as you have a grain of mustard seed; I will cause that small seed to grow and flourish. For even though it is one of the smallest seeds, it can be shown as an example of faith. For when you show your faith in the smallest of circumstances, even then it will grow and will produce a larger harvest of faith.
For the things that you see are temporary, but what is unseen is everlasting. You cannot walk this path of life with me unless you have faith. For it is what you see in my eyes that will carry you through the darkest of times. It is what will cause you to see what is on the other side of the hill. Through faith, the ancients were commended. With man things are not possible, but with me, all things are possible."
Then He led them with the cloud by day And all the night with a light of fire. Psalm 78:14
"There are many clouds that have obscured the view for many people in the world around them. There are clouds in the natural and there are clouds in the spiritual as well.
But many people's lives are obscured from seeing me. Are you obscured from seeing me? Can you see me as I truly am, or are the conditions of this world, or your mindsets, keeping you from seeing me?
I guided my people in times of old through the cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night, but now a different cloud has emerged in your lives. For those who truly want to find me, I will be found; and then the crystal clarity of my presence will show you. "
"THE WORLD MAY FALL APART AT THE SEAMS, BUT I HOLD THE FABRIC OF YOUR LIVES TOGETHER"
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, Psalm 46:2
"For in the coming years when the world and all that you see around you is perishing, know then, that I am the lifter of your soul. The world may fall apart at the seams, but I hold the fabric of your lives together.
For indeed, the mountains will quake. Indeed, the seas will roar with their mighty power. But you shall prevail. When the waters rise all around you, you shall speak to them and say, 'Go back.'
Your supply does not come from the world around you. Your entire lives are meant to be a song sang back unto me.
For in that day when all has gone dark around you, know then that I have a band of servants that will rescue many out of the bands of death. For even when the power grid has failed, when many are crying out in utmost despair, then, and even then, will I pull you out of the waters that are around you.
For the waters will come in like a flood, and I will rescue you, says the Lord. "
"THE ENEMY COMES TO CAST YOU DOWN, BUT I COME TO RAISE YOU UP"
But you, O LORD, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.I cried aloud to the LORD, and he answered me from his holy hill. Psalm 3:3-4
(I was discouraged this morning, and a dear friend prayed for me. I listened to some music that was shared, and now the Lord has lifted me up. He will do that for those who come to him. He is the lifter of my soul. Amen.)
"I come in like a flood of water, says the Lord. I come in, and I lift my servants up. I lift them up. Come to me all who are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Rest from the storm. Rest from the cares of ordinary life.
Though the mountains shall quake and the seas shall roar, yet those who put their faith and trust in me shall triumph. They shall triumph against the enemy, and the chains of discouragement will be broken.
Whenever you my children, are downcast, I can lift your spirit up. For I can reach in to your inner man and touch that place that needs to be brought forth. My words and my spirit are strength to your bones.
The enemy comes to cast you down, but I come to raise you up. I AM the lifter of my people. Don't look to circumstances, but look to me. For the air and the atmosphere will be lifted up in my name, says the Lord. "
"WHERE WILL YOU RUN TO ON THAT DAY?"
But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes the life of one of them, that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood.' Ezekiel 33:6
They say to the seers, "See no more visions!" and to the prophets, "Give us no more visions of what is right! Tell us pleasant things, prophesy illusions. Isaiah 30:10
"Lock your doors and set your homes on guard, says the Lord. For in that day you must flee. You must find shelter from the great storm that is coming. For that storm will be like none other. Entire cites will be wiped away. That great river that flows down the middle of the land will have spread out into the outlying lands. For much of the Great Lakes will have emptied.
Where will you run to to find safety in that hour? Where will you go and where will you hide? For in that day many of your major cities will have fallen. And that great rift that runs down the center of your land, will open up. What will you do when much of the west coast has vanished? What will you do when the ocean waves come all the way into Dallas? Will you say, 'This is just another storm?'
What will happen to all of the bright and cheerful words of the prophets? What will be said from your pulpits on that day? And the land will be changed forever on that day. But a people who have given their hearts and minds to me will come forth. They will proclaim my name amongst the peoples. Thus would say the Spirit of the Lord."
"HOW WILL YOU BE PREPARED FOR THE DAYS AHEAD ON THE DIETS THAT YOU HAVE PARTAKEN OF?"
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Rev. 3:20
19 And he took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” Luke 22:19
"Shut the doors and come into my sanctuary, says the Lord. I stand at the entrance of your heart. I stand at the door knocking there. Would you let me in? For I long to spend time with you.
Many of you have forsaken your time with me. Many have been too busy with the affairs of this world. Many have forsaken me, would say the Lord. But I have not forsaken you. I have gone searching far and wide looking for the lost lambs in my pasture, and many have found other things to eat upon in this hour. They have eaten things that are unwholesome to their spirits. They used to be satisfied with the food that I would give them. But now they have come to the tables of men. And yet I spread before them an entire banqueting feast, and they chose not to partake of it.
For you will not be prepared, for you have not had sustenance for your bones. When the lean days that come you will not have enough meat on your bones to survive?
But my body was broken for you, and my blood was given as a ransom for many. I am the bread of life. All that come to me will be sustained in the days ahead."
"WHEN THEY SAY PEACE AND SAFETY, SUDDEN DESTRUCTION WILL COME UPON THEM"
"Then they will begin TO SAY TO THE MOUNTAINS, 'FALL ON US,' AND TO THE HILLS, 'COVER US.' Luke 23:30
While they are saying, "Peace and safety!" then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape. 1 Thess. 5:3
"I have asked you to sound the alarm to many in this day and hour. Even though just some may listen. For men's hearts are far from me.
It is not a long way off. It is not a long way off before the land is sieged. For I tell you that men's hearts will fail them on that day. They would say to the mountains, 'Fall on us.' For where would you run to on that terrible day?
For many think that my plan is to bless this nation. Many think that bountiful and wonderful days are ahead for this nation. But many of you have ignored the warnings of my prophets. Instead, you have put your reliance upon the strength of men. The blow will come. It will come under the secrecy of night. The northern passage will be breached; and they will land upon your shores.
I allow nations to fall. It is in my plan. For you have not been without warnings given. The land will be filled with the military might of another land.
What have you listened to to prepare you for this hour? Have you eaten the bread of complacency and ease? Have you gone on as business as usual? Who have been your instructors for this hour? I say to fortify the walls of your hearts and homes. For I say that on that day your military might will not save you. For the military might of those nations coming against you will far outweigh your ability to hold them back.
Some indeed, are preparing for this day. They have places set aside; others will go and will work together with them. For your governmental powers will have been vanquished. The almighty dollar will have lost its value. Life may 'seem' to go on as usual, but the voices of those who hold the strings will shout out their orders to all.
Your capitol will crumble, and the offices of those who held governmental positions will have been taken over. Riots will have been the norm on that day. Buildings will topple, and the smoke will fill the air. Many will have lost their jobs. Woe to those who have preached peace and safety, for now sudden destruction has come upon you.
But I have a people who have been preparing for this day. They have not listened to the voices of complacency and ease. They know my voice.
The land will be sieged, and the dominoes will fall. And the events that have been prophesied in my word, will come to pass. "
"YOUR FOCUS IS UPON VARIOUS REPORTS RATHER THAN UPON ME"
8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, following the tradition of men according to the rudiments of the world, and not in accordance with Christ. Col. 2:8
that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 2 Thess. 2:2
"Many are consumed with fear about various reports that they hear about on the internet and on the news. But I tell you that many of these things are false and are not to be relied upon. Your focus has been taken off of me and is upon these accounts. I speak to all who have been consumed with these matters. Why do you follow after them rather than me? What has happened to your discernment?
Many are caught-up in following after these things. Many are seeking after sensationalism. There is a dividing line being made in this hour; and I tell you that it is separating some from others. For some are already on that road. They are watching and listening to every tidbit of information that they can find, and yet their ears are plugged from hearing my voice.
For indeed, dark days are coming. But some of you are already in darkness. For you have eaten the morsels of these stories rather than the bread of life. For it doesn't matter which report it is. It doesn't matter if it is Jade Helm. It doesn't matter if it is about death camps. It doesn't matter if it is about four blood moons. For your attention in every instance, has been diverted from me. You propose to warn others, but rather, you must be warned. For you are eating the morsels of these stories. You think that you are eating the solid meat of my word, but rather, your diet is of another thing. "
"THE CURTAIN HAS BEEN RENT IN TWO"
51 And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom; and the earth shook, and the rocks were split; 52 the tombs also were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised, 53 and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many. 54 When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe, and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!”
"I tell you that the curtain has been rent in two. The curtain has been done away with that kept my people from entering into my holy place. Matt. 27
For now that place where only the high priest could come has been done away with. For that one that came in ancient times into that place has now been done away with.
For now all can come into that holy place. Now through my Son Jesus, no longer does one man come into that place. The curtain has now been rent in two. Behold, it is now a new covenant. For what could only be done through the blood of bulls and goats, has been done now through the precious blood of my Son.
You now have access to the holy of holies. You can now enter in. For the curtain now is my robe. Enter now into my robe, and you will behold the glories of my kingdom. You will behold the sorrows and the griefs that I carried for you. You will behold the things that I suffered for you. You will look upon him who was pierced. And now you will look upon the soon-and-coming king. For I AM not coming back as the suffering servant. I AM coming back as the King of Kings.
And I AM telling you that the sheep will be separated from the goats. You must get your houses in order. You must be prepared for what is coming. For I will speak of things to come. I have been speaking of them. Few there are that would listen. For the true words of my prophets in these days would prepare you. But you would say, 'Tell us only pleasant things.' How many have come behind the curtain to truly listen to Me? And yet it is open to all. But you must come with a clean heart. The sword will pierce your hearts in the days that are to come. For I have said that I AM coming back with a sword; and I will separate everything between you and me. For I would be first in your life. Many things pull at the strings of your hearts. Many of them vie for your attention.
Many of you have stood in the gap for this land. You have prayed that I would heal this land. You have prayed that I would save it from the destruction that is coming. But it is in my plan that these things must come. For many have gone astray. Many have sought to find their own way. But as I have said, there will be a bridge provided. There will be a bridge provided for those to go across to find safety. And when the land is torn asunder there will be pockets of people, who will be lights for those who are in darkness. "
April 1, 15
"How many people are in a sleeping mode in this season?
16 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven. 2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. 3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed. Matt. 16
"How many people are in a sleeping mode in this season? How many have fallen asleep?
Have I not called you to be ready and alert? And yet you watch this news report or that one thinking that it will provide you with the needed information for the day you are living in.
Can you not read the signs that are everywhere? For when you see red sky in the morning you know what it means for the weather. But what of the spiritual signs that are everywhere around you? Can you not see them, or are you just blind to these things?
You foolish people! Have I not called you to be like the five wise virgins? Buy oil and salve for your eyes so that you may see.
A heavy Winter has caused some of you to despair, but I tell you that the Spring is coming around the corner. And with this new season comes new opportunities. For new things will bud not only in the natural but in the spiritual. For as there are new opportunities, there will be new dangers as well.
Keep your eyes and ears open to the dangers that are around you always. For the building of troops lies heavily upon the horizon beyond you. In the coming few years an army will be mustered at your land, oh America. Will you ready at that time, or will you have fallen asleep?
