13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? 1 Corinthians 1:13

"The new year will be paved with many things, would say the Lord. For the infighting between different groups of people will be increasing. Divisions will increase:

Divisions of whites vs. blacks.
Divisons of the rich vs. the poor
Divisons of Democrats vs. Republicans
Divisions in the church

And these divisions will soon give rise to a division in the land. For when the infighting is at its highest, then the land will erupt. And because of the chaos, men will look elsewhere for a savior. But who in the land would rescue them from this calamity? For soon the stage will be set for that one, and he would pretend to provide peace. But peace is far from his agenda. He will rise to power and will be seen as a man of peace. He is not the one in office now in the land. Those who are wise and discerning know of his origin. "

The Upcoming Elections


And he changeth the times and the seasons; he removeth kings, and setteth up kings; he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that have understanding; Daniel 2:21

(I realize that this prophetic word/vision will cause many to be upset and to question it. I have been obedient to the Lord in sending it out however, I have prayed over it and asked others to discern its truth as well. Remember that our prayers can have a great effect on future events, but God has a plan that oftentimes, goes against our human understanding. Also, please understand that this message has nothing to do with my views on a political leader or candidate. I am not in the business of endorsing anyone for a political office. So while some may consider this message as the opinion or endorsement from a man, it isn't. Our constitution makes it very clear that a president can only serve for a maximum of two terms in office, but as we know, God's ways are not our ways, and his thoughts are not our thoughts. )

The Lord showed me a vision. I looked and saw the face of Obama off to one side, and then the Lord said,

"This man will remain in office for a time. For with the upcoming elections, much trouble will be occuring. The land will be in tumult. The election will be paved with many problems and issues. And then because of the disruption, another one will be set in his place.

For the land will be set ablaze with many things. There will be trouble on every side. The very steps of the White House will shake with the tumult. For it is my direction to bring this land to its knees. "

Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? Isaiah 53: 1-2

Habitation God is the habitation of his people, who find rest and safety in him-- Psalms 71:3

(Our safe habitation is not a place hidden safely under the ground, or nestled in a grove of trees high upon a mountain pass. But rather, that place, is under the wings of the Almighty. For when the days of darkness come, that will be the only safe place found.)

"Place your trust in me, for the time will come when you will need to enter into my holy chamber. For as the days of darkness approach, your habitation must be found in me alone. You will not be found safe in the storm if you are not found in me. For in that day some will attempt to leave the cities. Some will flee to the deserts. Others will try to find refuge underground.

But I will lead my people forth on that day. I will feed them as I did in the wilderness. And when the storms blow and everything is falling apart all around you, I will be your source of protection.

When all of the lights have gone off, I will be your source of light. The oceans will churn, and the seas will rise, and the land will be flooded. But you will be brought across to dry land.

Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

Now the king of Aram was at war with Israel. After conferring with his officers, he said, “I will set up my camp in such and such a place.” The man of God sent word to the king of Israel: “Beware of passing that place, because the Arameans are going down there.” So the king of Israel checked on the place indicated by the man of God. Time and again Elisha warned the king, so that he was on his guard in such places. This enraged the king of Aram. He summoned his officers and demanded of them, “Will you not tell me which of us is on the side of the king of Israel?” “None of us, my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.” “Go, find out where he is,” the king ordered, “so I can send men and capture him.” The report came back: “He is in Dothan.” Then he sent horses and chariots and a strong force there. They went by night and surrounded the city. 2 Kings 6:8-14

Daniel 11:32 says, "But those who know their God will be strong and do great exploits."

"Do you hear the wind blowing? For a great wind is coming. This is not a wind of destruction. For it is the wind of my Holy Spirit. It is coming to give hope to my people. For you have heard of the things that are coming. You have heard of the destruction that will come. And yet, with these things that are coming, I want you to know that I will blow courage into your lives. For this will be the time of great exploits of me. This is the time that you will grab a hold of that wily serpent, and you will throw him to the ground. For you will go out and I will cause you to triumpth over your enemies. For you will roar like a lion. And my wisdom will shine down from above, and it will confound all. For in these last days I AM unleashing my gifts. I have said that the latter house would be greater than the former one. For you will run and not be weary. And those with eyes to see, those with the eyes of my prophets, will see into the enemy's camp. I will tell you things that are coming. I have been saying them through my prophets, but my revelation knowledge will increase."

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

The sea has come up over Babylon; She is covered with the multitude of its waves. Jeremiah 51:42

"The sounds of gunfire and sorrow echo throughout the land. The ashes fall to the ground, and the American flag droops as the ceaseless killing of many continues.

What has happened to you oh land that was once called the land of the free and the home of the brave? Where will safety be found? Your land has become a boiling pot for violence. You are divided about so many issues. Do you think that a new leader will quell the problems that you face? For your leaders think of their own agendas and not mine. You are on the road that is set by my prophetic time table.

It was not set by the man that is in office now. It was not set by any one man or person. For you have entered into those days that are spread out before you. The door is soon to be opened into the days of great tribulation and distress. My angels stand at the four corners of the earth. They stand ready to announce the final blows. Those sounds will begin with a certain pitch, and then the melody will change. And then the great winds will be unleased upon the land. The seas will rise. The earth will quake, and your land will be split right down the middle. And then one of my angels will unleash the waters from the Great Lakes. It will pour down and overflow the banks of your great Mississippi River. It will overflow into the surrounding land for hundreds of miles. For this is but the first blow. For yet another angel stands ready on the west coast; and when the time is ready those great plates under the earth will shift, and the great quake that has been rumored to come, will come. And then much of the land that was seen will be no more.

And the sounds of the cries will be heard throughout the land. Millions of lives will be lost; and yet many will be warned beforehand. And then the final blow will come to the eastern seaboard. The great city that stands upon the waters, the queen of the land, will be gone. On that day will the cries be spoken to me, or will they just be cries echoed from a people who have lost their hope in me?

The land will be purged. The smoke will rise, and yet a people will emerge out of the ashes. These days are not that far off. In spite of the devastation, many will be protected, and my wings will overshadow my own."

1 Therefore, holy “brothers,” sharing in a heavenly calling, reflect on Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, 2 who was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was “faithful in [all] his house.” 3 But he is worthy of more “glory” than Moses, as the founder of a house has more “honor” than the house itself. 4 Every house is founded by someone, but the founder of all is God. 5 Moses was “faithful in all his house” as a “servant” to testify to what would be spoken, 6 but Christ was faithful as a son placed over his house. We are his house, if [only] we hold fast to our confidence and pride in our hope. Hebrews 3

"There was a temple in the wilderness, and it served for a time in its purpose in drawing men and women to myself. Then the temple became a place of teaching the Torah and reading the books from within it.

The laws of Moses were read and priests followed a strict code of adherence to the law. The blood of rams and bulls was offered up as a sacrifice. And then my Son came to be offered up as the supreme sacrifice for sin. The way to follow after him was to seek him first with all your heart and accept the work that He did for you on the cross.

And so now that temple is within you. It is not made with human hands. It is not carved out as a beautiful building upon the earth. The altar itself is your heart. And how I would long to fill that temple within you."

32 What more shall I say? I have not time to tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets, 33 who by faith conquered kingdoms, did what was righteous, obtained the promises; they closed the mouths of lions, 34 put out raging fires, escaped the devouring sword; out of weakness they were made powerful, became strong in battle, and turned back foreign invaders. 35 Women received back their dead through resurrection. Some were tortured and would not accept deliverance, in order to obtain a better resurrection. 36 Others endured mockery, scourging, even chains and imprisonment. 37 They were stoned, sawed in two, put to death at sword’s point; they went about in skins of sheep or goats, needy, afflicted, tormented. 38 The world was not worthy of them. They wandered about in deserts and on mountains, in caves and in crevices in the earth. 39 Yet all these, though approved because of their faith, did not receive what had been promised. 40 God had foreseen something better for us, so that without us they should not be made perfect. Hebrews 11

"The sleeping giant has been awakened. For so long there have been things that have prevented my people from moving forward. Inside each of you there is a giant. This giant has been dormant for a long time. But now it is time for it to be awakened.

For in times past, there were men of courage and might. They led my people into battles. They spoke and prophesied to kings. They took a jawbone of an ass and slew thousands of their enemies. And now, that same fervor, that same spirit of might, is upon you. For you can slay the enemy that is in front of you. The strength that Samson had, now you can have. The wisdom of Solomon is within you to perform.

For all these things that I would give to you, are not by you, but through my spirit you can perform mighty acts of valor. You will do these things as my spirit comes upon you. The time for my men of valor has arrived. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord."

Romans 12:2 - And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

2 Cor. 10:5 - Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

"What are the issues around us in the world, many would say? For there are wars, and there are the rumors of wars. There are battles that are being fought every day. And even with the many battles that are being fought all around us, the greatest battles that are being fought are in your hearts and minds.

For the mind is the battlefield. That is where the real battles are fought. For with your thoughts, you can choose to pursue things of peace or things that would cause wars. For all the great battles that have ever been fought in this world, began in the hearts and minds of men.

For wherever there has been greed or corruption, there the seeds have grown and corrupted unto an entire garden of weeds and thistles.

So my people, the real issues are the hearts and minds of people. It is not about all the myriads of issues that you ponder. "

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
"America, I tell you that you have put your allegiance upon things of the past. For you have your heroes of the past; you have those men and women who fought for your freedom, but where are they now?

Where are those that stood in the face of battle, and fought against the enemy, your ancient foe? For he still runs rampant among your streets. That wily serpent, has found his way into almost every corner of your lives.

He has found his way in the prejudice and racism that runs rampant in your land. He has found his way in the sexual perversions that have now manifested themselves. He has found his way in the violence that strikes at the doors of many of the young and the old.

Your shores once marked and paved the way for many of the downtrodden and the foreigner to find a new way of life, and a new beginning, but now all they find is greed and dismay.

Be glad for the freedoms that you now have. But if you would have looked to me rather than to the patriotic acts of a few, then perhaps the disease wouldn't have spread so far.

Brave acts of courage and vigilance once marked the ways of many of your people. Once there was mercy and compassion shown to all. But now, much of this is a thing of the past. They are the dusty pages of an old book. They were the pages that once were opened that were seen by all. You could see it on the faces of the farmers and the men and women that worked the land. You could see it on the factory workers and the teachers that filled their rooms with stories of bravery and courage.

Your stars and stripes stand for something. They stand for something that once was. They fly and encircle a land that was once united. "

How the faithful city has become a whore, she who was full of justice! Righteousness lodged in her, but now murderers. 22 Your silver has become dross, your best wine mixed with water. 23 Your princes are rebels and companions of thieves. Everyone loves a bribe and runs after gifts. They do not bring justice to the fatherless, and the widow's cause does not come to them. Isaiah 1
"The world that you look upon now will go through many changes in the next few months and years. For, you have perhaps known about these things, but when it actually happens, and the judgment has fallen, then you will have remembered these words.

For indeed, some have prophesied about these things. Some have received visions from me about them; and yet others have read about these things from others.

For many have laughed about these things, considering that they would happen. Still others have labeled them as the ravings of a doom and gloom prophet. But when it happens and that day arrives, then you will know indeed, that they were not ravings.

For you oh nation of America, have fallen. You have fallen immeasurably far from your original founding. And your hope for a new era, a new beginning, will not come to your government and land. For a new leader, a new person, will not save you from your demise.

For you have taken a course that cannot be retracted now. Watch and wait as the next few months emerge. "
