2 Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and have them put to death. 13 You will be hated by all because of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. Mark 13

"I tell you that this coming fall is going to tear open a great division in the United States.

For with the upcoming election, more and more fights will be breaking out. Entire churches will be divided. The Capitol building will house a new candidate. But many who thought that this would happen, will be surprised at the outcome.

The time has come for all believers to put aside their differences. The time has come to put away your opinions. For there will be bloodshed and hatred in the streets. Brother will hate brother. And then the great time that I have spoken of in my word, will occur.

For it is not a time to fear. It is not a time to lose heart. For with the growing darkness there will also be a growing light. And this nation which was once the home of the free and the land of the brave, will change.

Many people think that a certain person will make your land great again. But I tell you that these things are not going to happen. My word states that in the last days great trouble will come. It is inevitable; your prayers can't keep it from happening.

But know that I will strengthen you for these days that are ahead. Know that I will enable you to go through them. And great exploits will be done in my name. Many will be freed from the chains that have held them; but a deceiving spirit will also be seen in the land. "

13 Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”

Jesus tells us that ALL can come to the water and drink from the well. We don't need to lean unto what others have drunk and tasted. For then the water can become "second-hand," and it may not be as pure as what we would "first taste."

Allow the Holy Spirit to teach you, and don't always lean unto the teachings of other men, no matter how great their wisdom and insights may be. He alone can be your teacher. He alone can feed you, and refresh you from the waters of His throne.

Those waters will "bubble-up" not only unto eternal life, but the revelation and truth that you find in it, will sustain you for your present situation, and for the days ahead.

God would say,
"Come right to the fountain from what you would drink, and not from what others have already drunk."

God has set-up apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers and evangelists in the church, but we ALL can be taught by the Holy Spirit. He alone can teach us things that no man could ever say. He is within us, and when His anointing resides there, the wisdom, the truth, and the revelation, far surpasses what any other man could speak.

But the anointing which ye have received from Him abideth in you, and ye have no need that any man teach you. But as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him. 1 John 2:27

So, come to those waters. Drink deeply of it, and allow it to fill your deepest needs. Allow Him alone to teach you, and to speak to you in your innermost places.

Therefore you will joyously draw water From the springs of salvation. Isaiah 12:3

Proverbs 6:6-8 - Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:

“Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were prudent. 3 For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, 4 but the prudent took oil in flasks along with their lamps. 5 Now while the bridegroom was delaying, they all got drowsy and began to sleep. 6 But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ 7 Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. 8 The foolish said to the prudent, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the prudent answered, ‘No, there will not be enough for us and you too; go instead to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.’ 10 And while they were going away to make the purchase, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut. 11 Later the other virgins also came, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open up for us.’ 12 But he answered, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13 Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour. Matt. 25

"In these days that are coming, I want you all to be prepared. For darkness will consume the earth. Day will have turned into night. For many will hide in the cliff of the rock. A great wave will encircle around you. For I tell you that this nation is coming under judgment.

For entire cities will fall on that day, and the geographical appearance of the earth will change. Many will flee to find places of safety. And many of my own will band together on that day.

But I say, to stand strong in the midst of the storm. Be ready to give an answer to those who would want it. For many will fall into despair. Many will be without food or shelter.

Woe to those who says that they will make America great again. Woe to those who say that bright days are coming. Woe to those who put their strength in a certain candidate. Woe to those who follow after the 'sleeping prophets.'

But blessed are those who put their faith and trust in Me. Blessed are those who give to those who are in need.

You stand upon a precipice, oh land that was once the land of the free and the home of the brave. But if you would raise your hands and reach out to Me, then I will be a shelter to you in these days. And I will equip you to stand against the enemy. I will help you to weather the storms that are coming.

Thus, would say the spirit of the Lord."

Stephen Hanson



25 “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, 4 but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 6 “And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’ 7 Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’ 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut. 11 “Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’ 12 But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13 “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming. Matt. 25

"Do you want to be ready for the things that are coming? Do you want to know that you will be kept safely from the storm? If so, then these are the things that you should do:

1. I tell you that you need to be ready, come rain or shine.
2. You need to know my voice above all others.
3. You must know that I will be with you through them all.
4. Your habitation must be in Me, not in stocking up food or supplies.
5. You must be willing to put Me first above all else.

If you follow these simple guidelines, then when the tempest comes, when the economy is failing, when the cities crumble around you, then you will be raised up on that day.
6. You must be willing to forgive others who have hurt you.
7. You must put your faith and trust in Me above all else.
8. You must know my word and be able to discern falsehood.
9. You must put on compassion and kindness. For mercy triumphs over judgment.

And then you will be safely found in the "center" of the hurricane. Then the winds will blow against your tent, and they will not be removed. "

9 He said, “Go, and tell this people: ‘Keep on listening, but do not perceive; Keep on looking, but do not understand.’ 10 “Render the hearts of this people insensitive, Their ears dull, And their eyes]dim, Otherwise they might see with their eyes, Hear with their ears, Understand with their hearts, And return and be healed.” Isaiah 6

(There has been a veil that has been placed over many people. Thousands look to a person to deliver them and to bring hope to them from the troubles that we are experiencing in this land of ours. But those that think this way are blind, for they really don’t see as they should. We cannot make America great again through the arsenals of our own hands, or the mortar that we think, would solidify the walls. This one is not known by Him, for his strength comes not from God, but from his own pride and arrogance. )

“How many of you truly see or hear from Me? You are following after someone who you think, will deliver you from your troubles. You put stock in a man, and yet, do you put “stock” in knowing Me? You are following after someone who will cause you to fall. A great show down is coming, and this show down will split the entire land in half.

How many have truly stood in the gap and have heard from Me? Those who you think that you have heard from Me, ‘Listen for a great dividing line is coming.’ It is not a dividing line of the wheat from the straw, but it is a dividing line of hearing the “truth” of my message.

For your eyes have become cloudy, says the Lord. But if you would put salve upon them, then you would see. If you seek after a Cyrus, then know that he would lead you into destruction. The world’s stage will be at a standstill on that day, and trouble will come to the land. “

Stephen Hanson



14 In their case the prophecy of Isaiah is being fulfilled, which says, ‘You will keep on hearing, but will not understand; You will keep on seeing, but will not perceive; 15 For the heart of this people has become dull, With their ears they scarcely hear, And they have closed their eyes, Otherwise they would see with their eyes, Hear with their ears, And understand with their heart and return, And I would heal them.’ Matt. 13
"I tell you that many have been deterred by the voice of a certain candidate. Many have followed after the voice of this man. But I tell you that his voice of bigotry and arrogance should be a sign unto you.

For someone may speak their "mind" but that doesn't mean that it is the mind of my spirit. Your eyes and your ears have been clouded. For the pomp and the circumstance will come to an end.

You long to make your land great. But I tell you that this is not the way to make it. Some of my prophets have been deceived in thinking that this man will deliver the nation. But you have drunk the wine of your own anger.

Woe to you, for you have been deceived in your own heart. And you would "Trump" a message, of your own pride and arrogance. How could your hearts have lacked so much discernment in this?

You who "pretend" to know what is coming forth, know only of the success of man. You have fallen, oh land that once was the land of the free and the home of the brave.

You think that someone like this will bring about a change to your former glory? Watch and wait. You say that you have had a dream! Indeed, you have had a dream. But your dream was manufactured to depict an idol of your own making.

The days ahead will be difficult for you, oh land that once was free. For you are a divided land. But eventually the smoke will clear, and you will see the reason for your own folly."

“Behold, I send my messenger, and he will prepare the way before me. And the Lord whom you seek will suddenly come to his temple; and the messenger of the covenant in whom you delight, behold, he is coming, says the Lord of hosts. But who can endure the day of his coming, and who can stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner's fire and like fullers' soap. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, and they will bring offerings in righteousness to the Lord. Malachi 3:1-3

"I AM turning up the heat on my people.For the furnace will be ignited to a higher temperature. A wave is coming, and this wave will overflow into your lives. For the fires will burn away the dross.

The three men in the fiery furnace did not burn up for I was in there with them. But even as I turn up the heat, I will provide a way out of the troubles. For there is a great spiritual wave coming. Many will come to know Me in even a greater way. For as the "temperature" of these trials is getting stronger, know that my spirit within you will be even stronger yet.

But you will inherit many blessings during these things. For it is at these times that the anointing within you will flow even greater. For as the fires are growing in intensity, the fire from my throne will ignite the inner man.

You see, all of this has a purpose. For it is indeed preparing you for the days ahead. But metal needs to be pliable so that I can heat it with my tools. For I want you to be equipped for the dark days ahead.

They will be unlike any other days you've experienced before. For I have stayed my hand for a long time now, for the dam is going to be released soon. For the time of Jacob's Trouble is soon to befall all of you.

(The spirit of the Lord showed me a range of angels off to my left side, and then similarly, to the right. Each of these groups of angels were blowing trumpets, as if they were to begin heralding the coming of these things.)

So, I want you to be prepared for them. I want you to be equipped and ready for those days."

Stephen Hanson


For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 2 Tim. 1:6

Then I said, “I will not make mention of Him, nor speak any more in His name.” But His word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones; and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not hold back. Jer. 20:9

(The Spirit of the Lord showed me a camp fire which was burning. The flames rose from it and they were carried throughout the air to different people. I saw the flames enter into the mouth of someone and encircle this person, and then the flames were carried in the air to someone else. )

"The fire of my Spirit is spreading to all. I will blow upon those flames. I will be the billow that blows upon them. But even as I have given unto each a gift, a ministry from Me, it is your job to fan into flames that gift.

For is my word not like fire, that burns within you? The greater the billows are, the greater will be the fire that emerges.

For as that fire is stirred, as it is stoked, the fire within you emerges stronger. It emerges and then spreads to others. And as each and everyone is touched by that flame, then an entire people is caught ablaze with my Spirit.

But how do you fan into flame that which is within you? You spend time with Me praying in the Spirit. And very soon that which was just coals, becomes a great flame.

That fire will burn within you. It will cultivate those things that are hidden in Me. It will burn away the dross; and it will strengthen you for the journey ahead. "

Stephen Hanson


3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: 5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: 6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: 8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirty fold. Matt. 13

(The Spirit of the Lord showed me a bible and as I was looking down upon it, the pages were being turned one by one very quickly. Then I saw the enemy himself, like a sneaky creature, trying to come and take the word away. He kept trying and trying, and then the bible was lit with fire, and this fire encompassed all around the bible, and yet, the bible itself would not burn. The enemy's face changed, for he knew that he was defeated, and then he left. Then the vision faded.)

The Lord then said:

"My word is alive and is on fire, and when it's alive and on fire, the enemy can not come and steal it from you. How many times has the enemy come to try and steal my word away from you? What soil have you received the word in? I tell you that rocky soil will prevent it from sinking down in. I tell you that the cares of this world will also prevent this.

But if you realize that it is more than just a book, then you will see that it is alive and on fire. Allow those words to soak in. Eat them, and let them become a part of you. Then the enemy will flee from you."

Stephen Hanson



8 Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered. 9 And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation, Hebrews 5:8-9

24 Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. Matt. 16

"There are many on this road to life that I have called. But how many of you have taken up your own cross to follow Me? I went to the cross for you, but I have also called you to carry your own cross.

I have called you to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For the cost is great, but the rewards are also much greater. For I suffered in the life that I walked upon this earth, and I've also called you to walk out a life worthy of Me.

I have said that my burden is light and my yoke is easy, and while this is true, it is also true that you must walk the path that is before you.

For I have called my sons and daughters to obedience. My Son learned obedience through the things that He suffered. You also can learn obedience through these things. For you learn a greater dependence upon Me through these things.

And in the coming months and years, when the world around you is growing darker, your times of suffering and tribulation, will have helped to prepare you for them. For how would you be ready if your life was always paved with ease? "

Stephen Hanson



12 Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, 13 and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed. Hebrews 12

"Many in this life and in their walk with Me, get tired of the world in which they are living. Some of you may feel like throwing the towel at times. Some of you are desperate for a way out of your situation. You stand at the edge of your battle, and you look out at the barren landscape.

But you have come this far, why would you give up now? The way ahead may be arduous, but pick up your weary feet.

The battle cry is heard in the distance. For you have left your post and you must return. Come my weary soldiers, and return to the battle. The war continues. You need to do your part and to continue in your walk with Me.

The world cannot renew you like I can. For I give strength to the weary. I sustain the old so that they can fly like the eagles.

The road ahead is always going to be narrow. It will wind its way through all types of terrain. But look out in the distance and you will see Me welcoming you with open arms.

But for now, return to the battle. Lift up your swords and your shields. And now, return to your posts."

Stephen Hanson



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? Matt. 16:3

"This world and everything in it, is coming unto judgment. For it should be plain to some of you that the signs are pointing to my soon return. But many go on with their lives as if it is life as usual. Are your heads buried in the sand? Are you oblivious to the signs that are all around you?

You are a foolish generation! You have spurned the prophets. You care only about what you want. You sit in your comfortable homes thinking that you will always be safe. Your luxuries are all around you. You have the latest gadgets, and you can monitor all of the latest news reports all around you. But can you monitor your spiritual condition?

But you say, 'I am well.' You say that you are the master of your own destiny. If that is true then where has your ship taken you to?

Will you come to Me when everything is falling all around you? Surely, your bank account will take care of you on that day. Surely, your guns and your ammo will save you on that day.

But if you would buy oil in your lamps, and salve for your eyes then perhaps you would see. But no, you would rather depend upon your own flesh. "

Stephen Hanson



13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matt. 7

But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. Galations 5

"There is much dismay in the world. There is much dismay in the "climate" of America. For where there is quarreling; where there are disputes about this candidate or that candidate, there is disorder of the highest kind.

For...the entire nation is sick; and it has a cancer that has festered. You hate much of what is already inside you. The disease has spread even unto much of my own body. And yet you don't even know that you are ill. You would kill, and harm, and maim just to prove your own point. You bite and claw at each other. You are like children in your own play pen.

Return to Me, come back, for you have strayed far from the path. You have entered upon the main road, and upon it many there are who travel. Come back to the narrow road, and there you will find peace. For my peace will overshadow you, as you walk upon this road. My peace will not be found in anything of this world.

My peace is not to be found in any one person or leader. My peace is not to be found in a political system or candidate. Even when the world is falling apart around you, you can find my peace. My peace is not to be found in the halls of government. My peace is not to be found in the halls of justice. But it is to be found when you enter my gates of thanksgiving. It is to be found even in the simplest of things.

The world's disorder will turn. Nations will rise and fall at my command. The seas will rise and cover the land. And a new leader will come to your land. What I will choose is NOT to make you great, but that I would bring you to your knees."

Stephen Hanson



18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets and stonest them that are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not! Luke 13:34

"This nation will be brought to its knees. For the darkness will come. It will cover the land. For your days are numbered, oh land that was once called the land of the free and the home of the brave.

You have entered into a time where you cannot turn back. The glory has left the land. For your riots and civil unrest will continue. Woe to those who call violence good, and march to the boldness of the one who has dominated your TV screens for months.

Pride goeth before a fall. The peacock will fall on that day. The splendor and his arrogance will bring about his ruin.

You have been led down a road and listened to a message from a piper who has played a tune that has led many of you astray.

The violence in the streets will continue. The only way to make America great is to get on your knees.

You were once a divided nation many years ago. You were divided from north to south then. But now your divisions will spread from east to west, from rich and poor, from the strong and the weak, from the old to the young. Churches will be split right down the middle. And those who speak from the pulpits will have a message all their own.

How can you bring unity to that which is fragmented? And what is the common cause if there is so much violence and hatred? The cause is not just.

But if you would return to me then I could heal that which is broken. But how many times have I asked you to do this? You say that you would return to me and yet your hearts are taken to another.

Oh, that I would have gathered you up in my arms. Oh, that I would have comforted you. Oh, that I would have made your borders like silver and saphire. But the jewel has lost its luster. "

Stephen Hanson



For thou hast said in thine heart, ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north. Isaiah 14:13

And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. Mark 3:24

"I tell you that I AM allowing a showdown in the political arena. The showdown will show the direction of the United States.

For the ego and the disgrace of certain people will be a sign to who you will give your allegiance to. For it is all a sign unto you.

I tell you that a great uprising has started among the people, and civil war will break out. For the divisions that lie at the heart of the people will erupt into a great showdown. And your nation will be at a stand still, and when all is said and done, this new leader will not bring you into the promised land.

For the land will be divided on that day. The divisions will be against brother and sister. The divisions will split churches down the middle. Your land will be parceled out. He who says that he will make America great again, speaks from his own heart and not mine.

You have lost your cause, oh America. You pretend to know of all the solutions, but your arena of politics has strayed far from me. It is not whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, but if you have known Me in your heart of hearts. "

Stephen Hanson



32 Of the sons of Issachar, men who understood the times, with knowledge of what Israel should do, their chiefs were two hundred; and all their kinsmen were at their command. 1 Chronicles 12:32

"Your nation will be ravaged by outsiders during those years. For, you will be kept safe for a season, but then the tide will turn. I will protect you for a time and a season, but at a time of celebration and festival, your nation will come under attack. You will lose in the battle, but many will flee and find safety. Woe to those who speak just the soft words. Woe to those who have found security in a leader. Many have put their strength in things other than Me.

You have entered into a new season; and indeed, there are promises for my people. But you only perceive a portion of what is in store. For indeed, there are forces at work. Indeed, the world watches in anticipation as your nation goes through its scandals and turmoil of this upcoming election.

Where are those who have prepared for these days? Where are those who have eyes to see? Where are those who have chosen wisdom over folly?

What will the new day bring, you may ask? A day of darkness is forecast for this nation. Your prayers go out loud and clear for the new leader of your land. But know that whatever happens, it happens for a reason. Civil war will erupt on that day. The colors of your flag will be torn asunder.

But a new flag will be flown. It will be flown for your faith in Me. For that flag is greater than the flag of any nation. And under its banner you will find strength and purpose."

Stephen Hanson



36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. Matt. 24

"How many of my children have waited long and hard for my return? How many have disputed and analyzed when that time would come? How many divisions have come about by questioning these things?

For the world spins around as it always has. Wars continue to be fought. Many catastrophes come and go. The birth pangs have intensified. And yet many of my children are blind to the things that are happening around them.

I want you to be aware of these things, but I also don't want you to try to pinpoint the hour of my arrival. These things are hidden from you. These things are shut-up in a book. I have said that no man knows the day or the hour, but I have also said, that of the times and seasons, no man would need to tell you of them.

Live as wise men making the most of the time. Live as those who would be free, but don't allow your freedom to be a context for evil.

Be ready, in and out of season. And let your light shine so before men, that they would see your good works and glorify Me.

I AM coming back for a church that would be ready for Me; and I don't want her wrangling over this issue or that. "

Stephen Hanson



9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. John 10
(At the beginning and during this word, the Lord showed me a long corridor that led down through this one door that had been opened up. Off to either side of this corridor, were other doors that led to various rooms. And then I saw the great serpent himself, as a green dragon twisting and dancing. Then the serpent/dragon began to change its shape into that of a woman, and then the vision faded.)

"In these days that you are now living, you are entering into a time when the world around you, and the spiritual forces, are always knocking at your door. What door will you open? Will you open the door to my Son, or will you open the door to the one who resides in the world around you?

For the door to the enemy, would appear first to offer pleasant and enticing things, but down the corridor after you open that door, are all kinds of dangers. And once you turn down that corridor, there are various other doors that open up to all types of evil.

The sound of the serpent has caused some of you to be allured by him. This serpent has clouded many of your vision.

My Son is the door that opens up to the world of my kingdom. His kingdom is an everlasting one. What door will you open up? Be careful, for the enemy waits and lurks in the hallway. He wants to entice you, and to lure you."

Stephen Hanson



Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walketh about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6

"And the end comes. The end comes as the beginning has begun. For with every day that you live your life in me, you are moving closer to that day when I will return.

And the day will come when all my body will work together as one. But for now, you each have your own trials, and things to face. The enemy works hard every day to cause havoc, and he disguises himself in ways that you may not readily notice him.

For he parades around like a roaring lion. He seeks to devour you but he will not succeed. Know that in this hour, his minions have gone out unto the earth. Know that they travel throughout the land. Some of my own have given into his ways. For he enters into portals that you have opened unto him. But the time has come for you to put him under your feet. For you have the victory. My spirit will cause you to be victorious in this hour.

With each day comes new battles to fight. So, sharpen your swords and have them ready at hand. Pray against those things that have come into your lives unknowingly. The prince of the power of the air will be defeated. "

“But only the high priest entered the inner room, and that only once a year, and never without blood, which he offered for himself and for the sins the people had committed in ignorance.” (Hebrews 9:7) “For Christ did not enter a man-made sanctuary that was only a copy of the true one; he entered heaven itself, now to appear for us in God’s presence. Nor did he enter heaven to offer himself again and again, the way the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood that is not his own. …But now he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself.” (Hebrews 9:24-26)

"The curtains have been opened up. In ancient times, the high priest went into the holy of holies. He went there to offer sacrifices, for the sins of the people. But now, my son has offered himself as a propitiation for the sins of the whole world. Now you have access to the 'inner chamber.' Now the curtain has been rent. Now the trappings of the old have been done away with. Now, you can step into the holy of holies. Now you have access to everything that is there. Behold....now the old has been done away with. Now it is a new day. No longer, do you need to observe all of these things. For now, you are a kingdom of priests. For the blood of goats and rams will not take away your sins.

My son paid the price for all. The old covenant served its purpose for a time and a season, but it was just a shadow of what was to come."

When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Alas, my lord, what shall we do?” the servant asked. “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes so he may see.” Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:14-17

"I am opening up a portal for my people; a portal that will enable them to see into the other side. For my servant Elisha was able to see into the enemy's camp. For my people will be seeing more and more things in the spirit realm.

For you will expose the enemy's plans. You will see into his camp. For surely, my angels are warring against the enemy's angels. There is a constant battle that is raging all around you. There are diabolical schemes at work. But I will pull back the curtain in order for you to see.

(The Spirit of the Lord showed me a crimson-colored velvet curtain, and then I pulled it back to reveal a shadowy figure. It was hooded all in black with no face. A person beside me, held a scroll in their hand, and was pointing to the writing on it. Then the vision faded.)

For those things that seem as though they are not, those things hidden and misunderstood, will be exposed and will come into the light. For those schemes of the enemy's will be thwarted. His plans will fail, says the Lord. Those dark towers that have stood for eons, will fall. For the words that I speak through my prophets, will utterly destroy his evil works.

He has hidden these things from many of your eyes. His shadowy secrets have been veiled. But his cunning and his deceit will be no match for my Holy Spirit, says the Lord.

You will notice a lifting of the clouds in this hour; and then the sun will peek through those clouds, revealing those things which have been hidden. "

13 Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; 14 but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.” John 4
"There is a saying, that hope springs eternal. But I tell you that everything I speak springs eternal. For the words from my spirit are life to those who hear it.

The words from my spirit are life because I AM life, says the Lord. I created and brought forth man into this world. I hollowed out a place inside him where he could worship me in spirit and in truth.There you will find waters of living waters flowing. There is a channel; there is an opening there, where my life bubbles up within you.

None can find this place with their natural eyes. The world cannot see it, for it lies hidden from the world. Many have tapped into the ground to find a spring. They would dig, and eventually they would find water hidden down underground.

My water is like a spring of life. The Samaritan woman asked me where she could find that water, and I told her that I would give her water springing up into eternal life.

The water in this world will sustain life, but it will not sustain your soul. You would drink of it, and your thirst would be replenished, but you would not be given hope, nor the life that I would give you. "
