THE DAYS OF YOUR NATION ARE NUMBERED



2/6/18

7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the Lord.

13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. Exodus 12

Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word. Psalm 119:114

(This is a repeated theme that the Lord has continued to speak to me about. Countless times I have seen a great rift that will open-up along the Mississippi River. Several times I have seen people struggling to reach out to the cliffs on the other side of this great rift that will be there. Many will perish along with homes and life stock on that day. The great waters of the Great Lakes will spill over into the Mississippi River, and the banks will overflow for hundreds of miles on either side. We are a divided nation more and more, and because of these things and when our focus is taken elsewhere, then our land will be ravaged. And yet even so, the Lord Himself will protect those who put their faith and trust in Him. He will be our hiding place on that day. These things will come; I don't know when, but because they continue to be repeated then surely the time is getting closer.)

“I tell you that the days of your nation are numbered. I tell you that time is running out. For my Spirit will not much longer abide with the uprising of sin that has progressed in the land. I have tried to get your attention time after time, but you would not listen. I have sent you my prophets and they have spoken, but very few of you would listen. A mighty wind will blow and it will come with fury upon the land. Some will heed the warnings and yet many will not. The sky will grow dark and it will seem like the light of day will never come. It will be like in the days of old when the Israelities went into their homes to stay away from the fury. For they put blood on the doorposts of their homes. They did this so that the terror would pass by. They were saved from the unslaught that came upon the Epyptians. For the plagues were sent and many perished.

You have become a land of great divisions. You are split over many things. And now you stand waiting because your government can't reach a decision because of the deceit of its leader. The system has become broken. You have been weighed in the balance and have been found wanting. And because you are in such turmoil; because you are in such confusion; your walls will not protect you. The walls of your land will come tumbling down on that day. You were once a mighty land. You once welcomed all to come and find liberty, but now your freedom will be gone.

I have told you that on that day a great rift will be opened, and it will ‘crack’ open dividing the land in half. Many will struggle to find safe land on that day. The Great Lakes will open-up and will pour down the Mississippi River. And the river will swell and it will spread out for hundreds of miles on either side. Homes and livestock will fall into the chasm below. A state of emergency will be held, but the sound of it will be drowned out. For you will be brought to your knees on that day. You would not listen to Me. You would rather listen to those who would promise you great things to come.
I have told you about the invasion that would come upon your land. I have told you that the Great Bear would join forces with the dragon of the east. They have been waiting for a time when your forces would be weak. Because you are divided, and because of the onslaught that is coming, you will be vulnerable on that day. Your homes will be ravaged, and your places of businesses will be taken over. It will come under the night watches. It will come when your eyes are elsewhere.

But I will be your hiding place from the storm. I will save those who put their faith and trust in Me. Even though I come with great fury upon the land, I will seek out and save my own. I will save you from the fowler that comes by night. You will find refuge under my wings. You will be kept safely on that day. These things will come, my people. They will surely come in your life time. They will come and woe to those who only speak of good things to come. “

BROUGHT INTO THE FULLNESS



2/3/18

13 until we all come into the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;

14 that we henceforth be no longer children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine by the sleight of men and their cunning and craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; Ephesians 4

“My people, you will awaken to new things in this coming time. You will realize your potential in Me. For too long you have shrunk back in fear. For too long you have stayed in your caves. For...you were made for a time like this. You have been given everything that you need. It is not meant to be hidden in just you alone.

For many people will be perishing. Many people will be left comfortless. Find the time and the way to share with them the good news. There is so much around you that is not good news. But the news that I bring is to give you hope and a future. My Spirit would indwell you and bring you into the fullness that I have for you. For I have longed that my sons and daughters would be with Me. I long to indwell you. I long to give you the keys to my kingdom. For these keys would unlock the door for you to see the benefits of my kingdom.

The benefits of my kingdom are not in acquiring more ‘things,’ but they are in coming into my fullness. And what would my fullness be, you may ask? My fullness is in having you equipped for and ready for the days ahead. My fullness is having you filled with my Spirit so that you would have an answer for those who are perishing. My fullness is having you know the many things that I have promised to bring you into. My fullness is in bringing you into the full measure of the stature of my Son. So in that way you would not be lacking in anything.

For you see, it is not only having you prepared and ready for what the dark days may bring, but it is also in coming to stand upon my promises. For in the coming time frame, many will be perishing. Many will be without hope, and many will shrink back in fear. But if you hold onto what I AM ‘in you’ then you will be able to weather any storm. You will be ‘lights’ to those around you who are lost in the darkness; and you will pull many out of the deep, dark recesses of the enemy's camp.

Hold onto what you now have. Don't give up or shrink back in fear. You were made for a time like this. “

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

DO NOT CONFUSE MY ANOINTING WITH YOUR OWN SPECULATIONS



1/29/18

15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.

6 And these things, brethren, I have in a sense transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes, that ye may learn through us not to regard men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another. 1 Cor. 4:6

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. Matt. 24

According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. 1 Cor. 3:10

“You can not begin to know all of the things that I've said to all my people. For I give some here and I give some there. All receive a portion of my word. And yet there are some who think that they have received all of my word. There are some who have gone off into tangents about the prophecies that they have received. Some have thought that they know precisely when I will take my body out of the troubles that will come upon the earth. No man knows exactly when I will take my body out.

Even some go on to speculate under the pretense of my anointing, that this certain man will round-up the giants of a long-forgotten race and in this way, will culminate in his take over of the earth. I tell you that it is not so. For I warn you, do not presume certain things! Do not confuse my anointing with your own speculations. These are serious matters, and these are things that have led my body astray. Whoever presumes to speak for Me must empty himself of all pretense and all hearsay. There are many voices out there in the world and even some are who masquerade to others as my true prophets.

Be careful, for the waters that you have begun to step in are now being muddied. I would say now that it is time to go back to your first love. For you have entertained other voices. Yes, you have a following and yes, you have begun with a deep fervor. But now that you have these things you need to study and show yourself approved. For my prophetic word will never violate the written word.

Do not continue to dig into the continual conspiracies surrounding the man of perdition from other men. In due time these things will happen. My prophetic time table is surely unfolding, and yet the course of events are not synchronized in order for you to fully know.

Take some time to step back from these things. It would be wise for some of you to go back to the foundation from what you first learned. For one must always never forget the foundation. Some have built tall buildings in this world and yet, a strong wind can easily topple them. So likewise, consider what you are building. Are you doing it with wheat or straw, or with precious metals? Whether you are building things for my kingdom and with your gifting, be careful for what rises to the top. “

Stephen Hanson

THE WAYS OF MAN



1/25/18

There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. Proverbs 16:25

“There is a way that seemeth right unto a man but in the end it leads only unto death. There are ways that man would follow in this life that might seem to be the right way, and yet in the end, it would only lead unto death.

The ways of man are to seek what would better him. The ways of man are to better his situation. For to become great in this world is to acquire more things. The ways of man are to think only of himself. The ways of man are to ignore the plight of the homeless . The ways of a man are not to seek what is right and true; the ways of a man are to follow what others do.

But I tell you that the crowd does not have the answers. Whoever would follow after what a crowd does will be lost in the confusion. For a man would seek his own answers; he would not consider to look to Me. He may even read books in order to make the right course to take. He may inquire of those who are 'experts' but each and every one is limited in their understanding.

What will you do in your day of trouble? When the winds blow and they come across your house will your foundation remain secure? Surely, it won't if you only have sought the advise of mere man. The frame of man is weak in the end. Even the great sky scrapers will fall on that day. Your bridges will fall and the earth will rumble. What will the experts have to say on that day?”

Stephen Hanson

IF ONLY YOU HAD



1/14/18

17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4

12 Set up the standard upon the walls of Babylon, make the watch strong, set up the watchmen, prepare the ambushes: for the Lord hath both devised and done that which he spake against the inhabitants of Babylon.

13 O thou that dwellest upon many waters, abundant in treasures, thine end is come, and the measure of thy covetousness. 14 The Lord of hosts hath sworn by himself, saying, Surely I will fill thee with men, as with caterpillers; and they shall lift up a shout against thee. 15 He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heaven by his understanding. 16 When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens; and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth: he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.17 Every man is brutish by his knowledge; every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them. 18 They are vanity, the work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish. Jeremiah 51

“What do you have to lose my people, for putting your faith in Me? What would you lose when the mountains fall into the sea and yet I AM still with you?

What do you have to lose when men and women are crying out in fear because of the judgment that is coming, and I have protected you under my wings?

When the torrents of judgment come will you run and hide? Will you close your windows and believe in Me? Where will your shelter be? When gunshots ring throughout the hills where will you run to? When the churches have closed their doors where will you gather on that day?

For I have said many times that your land will be invaded. I told you in various ways and means, that an attack would come from the north. It will come in secret across the Aleutian Islands. When you think that all is well, then under the cover of darkness, then the enemy will be moving his troops.

Your surveillance system will alert you but it will be too late. For even though you may be prepared your arsenal will not be strong enough. For you think that your arm of the flesh is stronger than mine. You have trusted in the strength of man for so long that you can't see any other way.

Oh, that you would have returned to Me. If you had only trusted in Me to lead you through these dark days. If only you had forsaken your idols. If only you had given to the fatherless and homeless. But how many times have I needed to warn you?

The great bear will join forces with the dragon of the east. The combination of their two nations will be a force that you oh America, cannot stand. You will lose your freedom on that day. Your statue of liberty will have fallen into the harbor. And a new leader will emerge who will usher in the last of days. “

Stephen Hanson

BOAST ONLY IN THE SON



1/13/18

12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
13 But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to the measure of the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you. 2 Cor. 10

“For without the trials that I bring into my servant's lives they would be left defenseless.”

For Paul would have gone on boasting about his revelations. He was given much in the way of revelation and of knowledge of my kingdom. Those who are given much are expected much. For I temper my servants. Otherwise those things that are given unto them, would cause them to be puffed-up with pride.

Who among you is great in their own eyes? Who among you has received revelations that speak of what is to come? Did those revelations proceed from yourselves or do you comprehend the origin of them? I can take away what was given unto you and give it unto another.

For some of you are competing with one another. You think that the depth of your visions and the profound quality of your prophecies causes you to be considered great. There is not a single person who has received all. I disperse my gifts unto many of my children and it is only by my grace that you now have what I have given unto you.

The only one to boast of is my Son; for He has given all. He gave His life as a ransom for many. You are nothing without Him. I have sent my Son that He would be a life to all and that man would receive Him as my true Son. But many who claim to speak for Me don't truly know Him.

For as many as I have sent; they have become my sons. And I have sent them that they would speak of him. But be assured, that I can bring down any man who boasts in himself. You see this all around you in the world. For I set men in office and yet I also bring them down. That throne of golden hues will be demolished.

You wanted someone to deliver you from the world's ills and now all you see is chaos and corruption. For boasting of what someone can do eventually causes that one to have a great fall. In the end all you have to see will be the shattered pieces. “

Stephen Hanson

PROMISES



1/11/18

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29

21 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;22 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body: not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh. Col. 2

“I say that it is time to rise up into your inheritance. For my word has promised you many things. I don't promise to give you riches or fame, but I promise to give you hope and a future.

But many forget and are not aware of the promises that I have to give them. For some shut these off enabling the enemy to come and steal from them. They at one time had these promises but the thief came and stole them away.

All of my promises are 'yes and amen' and I have given my entire kingdom unto you. For it resides within you if you would but believe. My promises are not temporal but everlasting. I have come to set you free. I have come to set you free from worry or enslavement. I have come that you would live beyond the bounds of this world. The world would attempt to confine you by its rules and laws. But my ways are higher than any man's. The world says, ‘Do not touch this, or taste this,' but I say that 'Wherever the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom.’

But how would one live in this freedom? I say that first of all you need to see how the world's systems have chained you to them. For the world would have to buy the best of everything. For it would have you to pursue these things and then they become your gods. But they don't promise to give you hope and a future. For in the end riches and wealth turn to dust.

I want you to have life in all its abundance, and to be fulfilled in what I've called many of you to do. For in that way then, my promises will flow forth as you are living the life that I've called you to do.”

THE WINDS ARE BLOWING ACROSS THIS LAND



1/5/18

8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. John 3:8

“I tell you my people, the time has come for all who follow after Me, to know that the times are ripe for coming unto Me. For the winds are blowing across this land. The winds have brought many things. They have brought turmoil and chaos. There has been destruction and many are still in the process of rebuilding after many catastrophes.

But wind comes in many forms and ways. No one has ever seen the wind. It comes and goes and the origin of it is held in my very hands. But not all wind is destructive. Some winds bring change and others can bring healing. Each have their purposes and reasons. I would say that the winds that now some of you are experiencing are winds of preparation. For now some are being told of what is to come. You are being told of the darkness that is coming, and you are warning the people because of it. And yet some sit idly by in their caves not aware of the storms that are coming.

What winds would you want to be aware of my people? Would you embrace the winds of change or would you just merely allow them to pass by? I tell you that many of you have been going through many trials and tribulations, and while these have been very difficult, they are preparing you for what is to come. For without these things, then you would not be equipped to stand in the days that are coming.

You cannot look back, for in doing so, you will lose your focus and your training will not be effective. For you see, all of this has been a training ground. The battles, the heartaches, and the upheavals all work together for one in preparing you for what is ahead. “

Stephen Hanson

PREPARATION WITH LIVING STONES



12/31/18

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. Matt. 7

5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2

“Have I not said and has not my spirit been unfolding my plan of ages to many of you? For I say that the time is ripe. The time is ripe for the unfolding of my plans to bring my body unto completion.

And what would those plans be, you may ask? My plans are that you would be ready; ready when the winds blow. Ready when the earth shakes; For the earth will shake, and it will rumble, and people will be running to and fro, in search for answers.

The sky will turn dark overhead, and you will wonder when the sun will ever come back. But it will...My people I have always given you a way out. I had Noah build an ark, and he saved his family out of the great deluge that came.

My warnings and preparations were never meant to cause fear in your hearts. But as I have said, you must be prepared. For all the foundations of this present world system will be shaken. Your money's power will dwindle. The almighty dollar will lose it's value. I have said this repeatedly to some so that you would know ahead of time.
Don't take for granted what you now have. Don't assume that the four walls of your home will serve as protection for you---don't assume that any building will be enough. For entire cities will crash on that day. But I will warn you ahead of time so that you will know where you should go.

I have said that I go ahead to prepare a place for you, and while that is true in the years to come in the heavenly realm, that also applies to those places of refuge that many will be called upon for places of my body to come unto.

And yet the real building I am doing is not done with wood or stone, but it is with the living stones that would assemble. For those stones will be knit together to form a holy temple that nothing on this earth that could ever damage or destroy.”

Stephen Hanson

HOW WOULD YOU BE PREPARED?



12/29/17

22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened. Matt. 24

Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 1 Cor. 1:20

“For it has never been my will that any would perish. But man has rebelled against Me from the beginning. He has gone astray. It has been my will that I would gather my own unto myself. From the four corners of the earth I will gather then up on that day, and the evil one will not touch them. But many are under the illusion that they will be raptured up and taken out of this world before the dark days come.

They misconstrue my word---they think that I will shorten those days and yet I will, but I will shorten them only because of my wrath. You must prepare yourselves for what is coming; and yet how would one prepare? Would one hoard-up money to prepare them for that day? Perhaps you would hoard guns and stockpile them away? Perhaps you would read all of your manuals that have been written about these things. I’m certain that you have the knowledge and wisdom about these things. No,you have no understanding about them.

Many are under the illusion that they will have soft days ahead. These are those who have followed a pattern that has been preached from the pulpits of some who have had their heads buried in the sand. For they have studied and have misconstrued my word. You have gone to the greatest of seminaries. You have gone to theological schools where my word has been interpreted by men who thought they were intellectuals. But where is the wise man of this hour? Where is the great scholar of the hour? Have I not chosen a people who were not wise according to the standards of this world? For my wisdom exceeds that of any man. It is deeper than the deepest ocean. You would not find it even in the deepest reaches of outer space. “

Stephen Hanson

THE NEW YEAR WILL COME AND WITH IT THE CULMINATION OF NEW DEVELOPMENTS WILL COME



12/24--25/17

For those who guide this people are leading them astray; And those who are guided by them are brought to confusion. Isaiah 9:16

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: Matt. 6

10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Rev. 3

“Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.” Isaiah 48:10

But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
2 Tim. 2:23

5 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 1 Thess.

The year will wrap-up as it usually does with the turmoil of the world. But the new year will come, and with it the culmination of new developments will come. The political landscape will be set with more and more chaos. Those things that have pin-pointed the stories of corruption in the White House will have come to a head. A new leader will emerge; but not the one that many would have thought of. For the time is hastening towards the end of all things. It is not to say that someone would immediately replace the one who is at the helm, but behind the scenes the plans are being wrought.

As the days grow darker your time with Me will become more and more crucial. For without this you would be left with no defenses to help you. For confusion will reign and on all sides my people will wonder at times what is true and what is not---thus, the need even more and more, for the discerning of spirits to be strengthened in your inner man. I have not left you defenseless on this matter.

For my body has been torn in half because of the preference of the one who is now president. But in time the divisions that are now so prevalent will come to fruition. And at that time a great rift will form. It will be seen as the nation is torn in two dividing the land in half. People will be running to and fro searching for answers. In time the entire nation will come unto ruin and yet my people will find habitation. They will find it under my wings.

The time is ushering forward to these things and even though it would not appear to be close that time is hastening towards its fulfillment. And yet many might wonder how they would prepare. And while it would be wise to gather food and arms, the greatest preparation you can do is to put your faith and trust in Me. For without my voice giving you clear direction you will surely be left defenseless.

How many of you truly know my voice? I have said in my word that my sheep know my voice and yet many of you still do not hear clearly. It is not a matter of going to the right church. It is not a matter of reading the right books. It is not a matter of going to this conference or that one. Did not even my Son go away to find a place to pray?

Conspiracy stories will abound and yet many of them have prevented many of you from hearing my voice clearly. They are distractions. They are side-stories. Would you rather have tasty morsels of deceit or hear from my throne clearly? You see, the enemy uses them for his own purposes. They are heresay and half-truths. There are better stories to listen to and to read about.

It is much better to set your mind on things above. It is much better to dwell upon those things that are everlasting. But if you are always reading about these things then you develop a channel in your mind, and then the album is played back again and again.

Will you feed on these things when the darkness is all around you? Will they give you strength for the days ahead? I tell you that they are only good for pigs to wallow in. But if you have my word within you then you will be able to weather the storms that are ahead.

I say that it is time for you to come out from among them. The world with all of its glitter and gold will never satisfy you. For those who pursue riches will never have enough. You may hoard up all of the world’s treasures and yet none of it will ever fill you.

Why must you waste your time about petty arguments about things? For many of the debates that you enter into are not useful. They only breed quarrels. But the wisdom that comes from above is first of all peaceable, and then open to reason.

No one knows the day or the hour of my return; not even my Son. But I have said that of the times and seasons you would have no need to know, for it would be plain to you. For is it not obvious that the pages of my book are now coming to fruition? For indeed, there have always been wars. Indeed, there have always been earthquakes. Indeed, there have always been false prophets and teachers from among you. And yet the fulfillment of these things is intensifying.

For when the world beholds Me coming in the clouds they will look upon the One they have pierced and they will know that I AM the One. But will you be ready my bride? For I will gather you up unto myself. The times will be shortened and yet you must go through much until then. You will be hidden in places and you will be spared from the wrath that is to come. But for now, buy gold from Me that has been tried in the furnace. This is not the gold of this world for it will perish. You will be tried in the furnace of affliction so that you will be ready. So says the Spirit of the Lord. “

Stephen Hanson

ALL CREATION GROANS



12/23/17

19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. 20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, 21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. 23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. Romans 8

“All creation groans for the sons of God. For my Spirit has been working on my sons and daughters. For you were made for a time such as this. For centuries on end my Spirit has longed to bring my sons and daughters into their fullness. And yet, many have been blinded by the things of this world.

A tree cannot grow if its roots are not drawing sustenance from the earth. You must draw yourself away from the things that hinder you. You must draw deep from the wells of salvation. The world can blind you from seeing my glory. For the things of this world are only temporary.

It is so easy to get caught up in the affairs of man. Those things will always dissuade you from following after Me. But I will always be with you, even unto the end of the age. As nations come and go and as the mountains sink into the sea, so will my Spirit always be with you.

But the time has come as my judgment has entered the time frame that you are now living in. You have been warned repeatedly of the great darkness that will befall. Your riches will fail you on that day. Anything that has been your security other than Me will fail you on that day.

THE ARROWS ARE NOT HITTING THE TARGET BUT ARE HARMING OTHERS



12/16/17

10 As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, 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

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Ephesians 6

31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: Ephesians 4

(The Spirit of the Lord showed me a bow and arrow and as each arrow was let go it went forth in flames to hit a target, but as I watched the arrow left its mark and circled around hitting others around me. I noticed that some who were near by caught on fire and their bodies were aflame. Then the vision faded.)

“I tell you that there are many who are in body in this hour who are shooting their arrows at one another. For the flames from these arrows that were once designed to hit the mark have now left the target.

For there are some who have been given a prophetic gifting, and at one time they were hitting the mark, but now because of pride and anger the arrows that were at one time designed to bless and lift-up others is now hurting them.

Surely there are words from Me that are to bless and encourage, and there are also words sent out to warn and rebuke. All have their place and all come from my throne untainted. But men and women sometimes have their own agendas. Sometimes because of hurt feelings and bitterness what was at one time meant for good, now is turned into a dangerous thing.

For the enemy has turned some of these things and by his dark designs, those words have been infused with the darkness. You see, the enemy can twist anything. He can attempt to mimic the gifts of mine by his dark thoughts and whisperings. But I tell you to stand your ground against him. Come to Me with a pure heart and I will wipe the slate clean.

He knows that he has just a little time left. And he sits in his dark corner devising evil plots. But if you would discern these things you would know when he attempts to do them.”

I TELL YOU OH MAN, YOUR GREAT STRENGTH AND WISDOM WILL NOT GUARD YOU ON THAT DAY



12/12/17

Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. Jermiah 17:5

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress;My God, in Him I will trust.

3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. 4 He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. Psalm 91

“Many are like blind men in how they follow after the plans that they have made, not knowing what the outcome might be. It is better to have a plan then not to have one. What are your plans my people? Are your plans to remain having your heads buried in the sand, or to have your eyes opened to the world around you?

The wise man looks ahead seeing the danger that is in front of him. But the simple go on believing that all will be well.

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon this earth, for in time they will rust and will wither away. But how does a wise man plan for the future? How does one prepare for the dark days ahead? Does he hoard-up money and bury it in the ground? Does he buy loads of guns and fortify himself against his enemies? Surely, if a man had a thousand guns and built a fortress he could safely reside within.

But what of the many other dangers that a man might face? How would a man prevent an epidemic from coming upon his household? Would he have on hold the most modern serums to ward off the diseases that might come?

How would a man prepare for an earthquake that would shatter everything around him? Would he hire a team of engineers to fortify his house?
When the great floods would come, would a man have a boat ready to sail away? Or when the winds come where would you flee to on that day?

I tell you oh man, your great strength and wisdom will not guard you on that day. You cannot have enough food to feed your hungry family. For what will you do when the supplies run out? What will you do when the stores are all closed? When the system has lost its power and your money is gone, will you be ready?

Perhaps your emergency kit will save you on that day. I'm certain that you have the necessary ingredients at hand. No I tell you, you cannot prepare in your own strength for the arm of flesh will always fail you. But those who put their faith and trust in Me will be kept safe on that day.

Did not Rahab save an entire city? Was not Elijah shown the miracle from above as the fire came down and destroyed the ministers of Baal? No I tell you, many miracles will be wrought in my name. And after the dust has settled then a new breed of people will emerge. The earth will be cleansed and I will come back for my own.”

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO A PEOPLE?



12/10/17

Also her hired men [are] in the midst of her like fatted bullocks; for they also are turned back, [and] are fled away together: they did not stand, because the day of their calamity was come upon them, [and] the time of their visitation. Jeremiah 46:21

What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members? 2 You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. James 4:1-3

"What would say to a people who have strayed far from my plan? What would you say to the masses of people who doubt my coming? What would you say to a nation that is in turmoil?

I tell you that I AM coming back and my bride is not yet ready for my return. For she has been involved in wars within her own body. She is involved in petty disputes. She is involved in the lies of the enemy.

I tell you that I want to make her ready for my soon return but she would rather listen to stories of propaganda. For the enemy has infiltrated your ranks. He has come and has knocked down all of your defenses. You have believed his lies. You have listened to his lies in the night hours.

But you can still be resurrected from these things. You can still be freed from the chains that have held you. But your vision has been clouded. Your heart has been twisted, and now it needs to be reformed.

Outside forces will come to invade your land. They will come when you least expect them. In the cover of darkness they will come from the north. They will come in stealth and they will creep along your northern borders. And while your surveillance will detect them, great damage will be done.

Many will flee from the cities on that day. They will find their places in the wastelands. Some will be lost never to be found; and yet, I will protect my own on that day. Some have already been warned about these things ahead of time. Each person will prepare in their own way.

Your borders cannot protect you. Your artillery even though it is strong, will not withstand the siege that is coming. Woe to those who have said that all will be well in the days ahead. Woe to those who have preached to a land of itching ears!

My people I don't want you to fear these things that are coming. I don't want you to fear when calamities come. For even as in days of old, men and women rose up in my name, and they were able to go out in my Spirit, so again, the men of renown will return once more.

But for now, quit the back-biting. Quit the division about this person or that one. Quit tearing up your brother or sister. Your political arguments have paved the way for the enemy, and he has dirtied the waters.

Your agendas have mostly been for a man who would lead you to victory in this hour. But now perhaps you can see that it was mostly for himself, for his own popularity and agenda that he rose to power.

You got what you asked for; you got a king, and he has torn apart his entire kingdom. But the scepter will be broken, and the kingdom will be split in two. For the days that are ahead will be ones of great turmoil. And then someone else will emerge. But at your weakest moment the land will be ransacked.

Prepare your hearts for the days ahead. "
