A WORD FOR THE NEW YEAR
3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed. Matt. 16
19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 1
"For I AM a God of new beginnings. I created the heavens and the earth, and I made man a little lower than the angels. And yet man has prostituted my world. He has defamed Me. He has thrown my word to the wind. And now you await to see what will happen in this new year. You look to your favorite prophets and teachers, and you follow after them thinking I will speak to them a 'new word.' And you do not know that that very word is near to you? Why do you spend your time seeking the truth from others when you can simply come to Me? And yet I have given my word unto all. You look for a miraculous sign in the heavens. Many of you think that I will show you these signs. Truly, there are signs all around you. And yet many of you cannot see them because you are looking for the miraculous.
Your prophecy groups share the darkest secrets from many who 'pretend' to be prophets of mine. These are those who have masqueraded and put on the clothes thinking that they are truly speaking for Me. But I only choose those whom I choose. Some of you just want an audience, and yet others of you have been lost along the way and now you have mixed my word.
So what would be done and what would you seek in this new year? You would hope for new beginnings, and you would desire to build new relationships with men and women. But rather, would it not be more important to rebuild your relationship with Me? You must learn to empty yourselves of all your past grievances and leave them buried at the cross.
But I must tell you that the world that you are now living in is growing darker by the minute and the hour. There are dark powers at work in governments and around the world. Many have been controlled by the enemy for years, but in time they will fall.
You must learn to run the race that is before you with perseverance. You must take the baton from previous generations and run the race with the purpose that is set before you. And when the enemy comes knocking at your door, you must learn to keep it shut. For he will attempt to distract you more and more. But rise-up above your present circumstances. Set your minds upon things above.
There are many winds of doctrines that have come sweeping through the church in this hour. Learn to find out what is true and what is false. If you are misled by men's words it is only because you haven't studied mine as well as you should. Just as the disciples were afraid of the storm that was before them, I told them to look to Me and not at the waves that beset them. So in the same way you must not get involved in the world's problems around you. "
YOURSELVES UP IN YOUR ROOMS
Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. Isaiah 26:20
"Shut yourselves up in your rooms, my people. For when everything comes it will be like nothing you have ever experienced before.For the earth as you know has been going through birth pangs. And I tell you that this present administration will fall. Will you be ready when everything hits the fan? Will you be ready when people are taken away in chains?
You must devote yourselves to prayer more and more. For a national crisis is coming and it will be like nothing ever before. You will see, and know, and understand. But don't look to the world stage for your answers. Your help comes from Him who made heaven and earth.
This will be the thing that causes the dominoes to fall. This is the last stroke that causes the dam to break. But I control the stern of the boat. The seas may rage but I control their fury.
This earth will be swallowed up at the end if the age. And at that time there will be the war that ends all wars.You must go through these things until the end for they are preparing you. They are preparing you each and every day.
I AM with you unto the end, my people."
BE EVER HEARING BUT NOT HEARING
And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. Isaiah 6:9-10
"There is so much that I want to reveal to my people but so many of them don't have ears to hear. So many of them have their ears closed to Me. And yet you have ears to hear your favorite TV programs. You even have ears to hear your favorite TV evangelists. Your ears are filled only with what you want to hear.
But how will you be prepared when the onslaught comes? No, your ears will be plugged. Isaiah was right when he said unto you,
'And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. Isaiah 6:9-10 '
HAVE YOU NOT SEEN THE SIGNS AROUND YOU?
25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
"Have you not seen all the signs around you? Have you not been attentive to my Spirit? Have your eyes and ears become dull? You are a lost generation. You are a slumbering race of people. And yet I do still speak unto you in this hour.
I have rescued many of you from many waters, and yet because the waters come again, you think I will leave you comfortless? My Spirit reaches out to all who would seek Me in truth, but many fail to worship Me in Spirit and Truth.
I have warned you again and again and yet you still ignore Me. I have said that your nation will fall but many of you think that your walls are impenetrable. You are a nation that has gone far astray from Me.
You will be brought down, oh high and lifted-up one. You sit upon your throne thinking that you are secure, but your lies are all soon to be found out. And then the trouble that you have seen for years will be heaped upon you.
But you my people, are to remain strong in Me. You have been given a mandate from Me, and even though the darkness grows all around you, my light will penetrate that darkness. Don't grow weary but remain strong, for your strength will be needed for the battle ahead. "
THESE ARE THE DAYS THAT MANY HAVE WONDERED ABOUT
Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into. 1Peter 10:10-12
"These are the days that many have looked into and wondered about. These are the days when everything around you will be changing. For when the north wind blows it brings with it very cold weather. And I tell you the earth has been going through many changes.
These are the days of upheavals in the earth, but these are also the days of upheavals in the Spirit. For there is a battlefield going on in the spirit realm. This battlefield is where many things are forged and written down.
You must remain strong in these days. You must wear your armor at all times. For the end of all things is rapidly approaching. The great powers that you see all around you will one day be brought down. And that great serpent you know as satan, will be thrown down.
But don't give up the fight yet. Don't become lax and comfortable. For you will be tested beyond your beliefs at times. "
RELEASE THOSE WHO ARE IN DARKNESS
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; Isaiah 61:1
“There are many of my children who are in bondage. For the prisons of despair and darkness have kept them from being in my light. They live in dark chambers in their souls. For the enemy has clouded their minds and kept them chained to many things.
The dark chambers have infiltrated the minds of many of my people. But my light can fill those dark caverns. My light can fill the darkest corner of the world. The enemy knows that his time is short; he knows that he will surely fall on that day. He has never understood the light, for he has ever been cloaked in darkness.
He has sent his minions out unto the world; they have come to pervert the minds of minds. For the world’s powers have been influenced by his diabolical schemes. Even a whisper in their mind or ear, has caused them to follow after these evil schemes.
But you my children, are of the light. You know of its radiance. You know of its ability to dispel the darkness. I have asked you to deliver those who are in darkness. Release them from their evil, dark chambers in my name, says the Lord.”
THESE ARE THE DAYS LIKE NOAH
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Matt 24:37-39
"Go about your business as usual. For in these days I AM working out everything according to my purpose.I have said that these days would be like the days of Noah, for then they were eating and drinking and giving in marriage.
For before the flood men and women were involved in all kinds of debauchery. And they had attempted to become like God himself. The angels had mated with the daughters of men and the seed had become corrupted. And so I had to wipe out mankind by the flood.
And so now mankind has attempted to be like Me again. I have said through my prophet Daniel that knowledge would increase. Scientists have created and experimented using animal and human embryos.If left to his own devices there is nothing that he would not attempt to do.
In these last days mankind has gone the way of Cain. It was never in my plan for mankind to go in this way. But ever since the beginning he has rebelled against Me. I sent my Son to save mankind, but many still have not received Him. There is still time to receive Him but the door is closing soon."
I AM REFINING YOU MY PEOPLE
And He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; and He shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness. Malachi 3:3
Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction. Isaiah 48:10
And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on My name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is My people: and they shall say, The LORD is My God. Zechariah 13:9
“I will settle the score. I will settle the score between good and evil. For the present tribulations of this time are nothing compared to the great glory that will be revealed. For all the years of trials and all the years of heartaches, will one day be done away with. All the years of weeping; all the years of sorrows will one day come to an end. For I AM preparing you; I AM sanctifying you through these things.
The years have been very arduous for many of you, and sometimes it seems like it would never end, but all of these things have been necessary for you. The furnace tries many things and burns away many impurities. For gold is tried in the furnace and silver is refined. I AM refining you my people so you will be ready when trouble hits. I AM preparing you for the dark days ahead. For the world and everything in it, is going through birth pains.
The catastrophic events that you have been seeing going on around you will increase in intensity. You will be shaken; you will be shaken beyond what you might think that you can endure. But if you remain true to my word and remain intimate with Me, then you will make it through the trying days ahead.
But I tell you that you can’t remain idle these days. Preparation is needed. Some prepare by digging a hole in the ground. Some prepare by stockpiling food—but stockpiling great quantities of food will not prepare you for my coming. Guns and weaponry may defend you from evil men, but they will not sanctify you. When the world is racing towards judgment, the things of this world will not save you from it. “
DEAD MEN WALKING
9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. Deut. 18
"To pass from death unto life; those are things that my body must be learning more about. For I have come to give you life, and to give it more abundantly. But there is still death all around you. There is a sense of hopelessness in the world around you. You have been given a new life in Me, and yet many of you walk this earth as the old man and not the new man.
For what fellowship does life have to do with death? There is the stench of death around many of you because you have joined in with the world's practices. For some of my body has become polluted with the ancient practices of the enemy. For your tarot cards and your astrology charts must be done away with.
Those of you who partake in such practices have opened yourselves up to a window in your spirits; and there now you have joined hands with the enemy. You will then be like dead men walking. And the dead have no hope for in this life. They wander around aimlessly with no hope for tomorrow. "
YOU CANNOT BE A LAW UNTO YOURSELF
He hath shown thee, O man, what is good: and what doth the Lord require of thee but to do justly and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Micah 6:8
There is a right way and there is a wrong way. There is a right way and a wrong way to enter into my kingdom. For many have stained hands. Many have hands that have shed innocent blood. You must repent of your sins before Me. For the blood of this nation has risen to such a height that I can not tolerate it any longer.
Your laws that you have put down in your books are written by men, but my laws are higher than any man. Your court rooms and your laws rarely show forth true justice. For the rich have been given favor, and the destitute look for tiny morsels to take care of their means.
But I have shown thee oh man what is right: 'To do justice, love mercy, and to walk humbly before they God.' You cannot be a law unto yourself. You cannot simply follow your own heart of what is right and wrong. For your heart alone is deceitful; it follows its own desires. Its appetite is the belly.
For my laws have been written down in wisdom and they follow the dictates of my eternal kingdom. I judge each and every man accordingly. The nations will be judged, and my strict judgments have begun to fall."
A GREAT STORM IS COMING THAT WILL PIERCE THE HEART OF MANY
For they sow the wind And they reap the whirlwind The standing grain has no heads; It yields no grain. Should it yield, strangers would swallow it up. Hosea 8:7
"A great storm is coming. A great storm is coming that will pierce the heart of many. A storm will come that will be dark and furious. It will come and it will be witnessed by all. For the judgments have come and have started. Throughout the land you have seen the fury as it has burned away many homes and businesses. But these things are but a taste of what is to come.
For on that day your land will surely split open. You will be split from east to west, and the division will be seen right down the middle. Many will cry out in horror on that day, for their very homes and lives will be swallowed up.
The unrest that has been so clearly seen in Washington will bring about more and more civil unrest, and the violence in the streets will increase in its intensity. Your king has incited violence throughout the land. He pretends to follow the God of your forefathers, but in his heart-of-hearts he seeks his own glory above all the rest.
What has happened to you, oh land of the free and the home of the brave? For your factions have split you in so many ways. And yet in spite of all these things I have a remnant that will stand up on that day. They will only follow the King of the eternal city.
When tanks and men coming marching upon your land, will you muster the courage to follow Me on that day? Watch and wait for your divisions will grow greater. Your churches will be split down the middle as political differences cause you to vie for one or the other. But are you not a country that would attempt to find unity even among those who declare such differences?
Can you not find common ground among those who are your brethren? "
13 Till we all come in 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 fulness of Christ:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: Ephesians 4
MAN HAS CHOSEN TO BE HIS OWN GOD
And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Daniel 12
"From morning unto evening I AM the Lord of this world and everything in it. I have established the heavens and the earth at my pleasure. I created man and woman and placed them in the garden. But they fell and ever since that time they have toiled in the dust and woman was given hardship in giving birth to children.
I sent them my Son for their sins, and He came to give them new life in Me. And yet some received Him and others chose not to. And now after all that time, many have still chosen to find their own savior. For many seek their answers with man. Many seek the machinery that they have built with their own hands. For technology has risen to such an extent that now he is attempting to create his own life. He would think that he would be like God himself.
I had told my prophet Daniel that knowledge would increase, and now it has reached such a height that nothing would stop man from his building of his own life. And yet he has had his ears closed to my Spirit. It should be plain to him about the state of affairs in the world, and yet many have chosen to be blind to these things.
I have sent my warnings through my servants the prophets, and many have chosen to ignore them. For some have concluded that they are just madmen. But you have been given a choice, for the words of my true prophets will come to pass. So would say the word of the Lord."
BEHOLD THE HOUR COMES
32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16
These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.4 But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you. John 16
"Wait and see, for the trouble will increase around you. Trouble will increase but my Spirit within you will enable you to withstand the winds that will be encompassing many of you. For the world's birth pangs are increasing.
I have said that in this world you would face tribulation, but I have also said not to fear because I have overcome the world. I AM He who would help you weather the storms. I AM He who would walk beside you in all kinds of weather. But the world and everything in it, is slowly slipping away.
I tell you that truly you will go through all kinds of battles, and a series of tribulations that you have not faced before, but these must come so that you would be ready for the things ahead. For they will come to stretch you; they will come to prepare you.
For indeed the world is slowly passing away. Indeed the darkness will come and it will encompass the earth. For the enemy is at work, and his minions seek to destroy everything that is good. But remember that He that is inside you is greater than he that is in the world.
But you must be prepared---you must be ready. There is coming a time when they will put you in jail, for they would think that they are doing my will. Many will be deceived in that day. For I have told you these things before. Many have already been thrown out of the churches. For they do these things thinking that you are not of Me, but actually the opposite is true.
But remember how Peter and Silas were thrown into prison; and yet I delivered them from their confinement? So do not fear whatever may befall you. "
25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed.27 And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, Acts 16
I WILL BRING DOWN THOSE WHO ARE FALSE
And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the Lord;3 Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!4 O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts.5 Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the Lord.
6 They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The Lord saith: and the Lord hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word.
7 Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The Lord saith it; albeit I have not spoken?8 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord God.9 And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord God.10 Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter:11 Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.12 Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it?13 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it.14 So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered morter, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the Lord. Ezekiel 13
"In a time of many reports, who is right and who is wrong in this hour? In this hour who would you follow? What voice, what messenger is true and which one is false? For now I will expose those who pretend to be prophets. In this hour I will bring down those who speak lies and half-truths. For I will not suffer those who pretend to speak for Me. I will not allow those who have filled the air with their pretentious words to go on as if I do not care.
For I will bring down the pretentiousness of man. I will bring down those who think that they speak for Me. I will bring down those who have falsely spoken for Me. For I will hold you accountable for these things. Am I not a God who speaks truth? Who are those favorite ones that you follow? Are you following after mere men or are you following after Me?
Just because some speak of glorious things, or their words appear to be framed with tidbits of what appears to be revelation, does not make it truth. For my truth will expose the lies. Gone will be those who have spoken falsely in my name. And the lies of those who have attempted to promote themselves through their false prophecies will fall to the ground."
THE WORLD AWAITS FOR MY COMING
34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. Matt. 10
"For the world waits in anxious anticipation--the world awaits for my coming. But what will they find when I come back? Will they find the gentle Jesus who came to them before? I tell you that I AM coming back with a sword. I AM coming back to separate everything that is not of Me. But I tell you, this sword will pierce your hearts. It will come to insure that everything you do and say is for Me alone. Will I find you working and striving after the things of the kingdom, or will you continue seeking the things of this earth? For that sword will separate between soul and spirit. It will separate between joints and marrow. Your foes on that day will be those of your own household. Your friends may leave you, but I will never leave you nor forsake you.
Many will come declaring that they are the one to come, but you shall know them by their fruits. He who receives you, also receives Me. But many shall reject you in this hour, but also remember that I was also rejected. For I was despised and rejected, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And yet I AM coming back as a king. This world may well have many kings, and they last only for a short time, but my kingdom will last forever. For the kingdoms of this life are only for a short time. They come and go like the chaff upon this earth. They will be blown like the wind."
THE COLOSSEUM OF AMERICA AND ITS SPECTATORS
And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto
Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up
out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
2 And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of
your daughters, and bring them unto me.
3 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.
4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and
they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to
6 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat
down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.
7 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have
8 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have
worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of
the land of Egypt.pt. Ex. 32
"Come to Me, my people, for the waves will eventually overtake you. This land that was once called the home of the brave and the land of the free, will fall into ruin. You have a little more time but in time, you will be left as Rome once was. For Rome fell because of its corruption within. And because of your corruption oh land, you will never be restored to your former glory.
It is said that Rome fell in a day, and yet it had festered over a period of time because of its evil leaders. For there was the killing and slaughtering of many as they watched in the great Colosseum. And now many are as observers in this Colosseum of America. You watch as spectators to the games that are played all around you. You watch as your leaders spew all kinds of lies. You watch as spectators as men and women are slaughtered in your churches and in your schools. And you say that America will be great again! You have drifted so far. Your glory will only be a distant memory. You think that this present administration will bring the necessary change that you so desperately seek. But your hearts are turned to someone whose only motive is to make himself great.
You are like the children of Israel who built a golden calf. They set it with the finest of gold and jewels. And now you lavish upon it all of your honor and praise. Even many of your apostles and prophets have joined in on this process. You have fallen as of Rome. You have gone into the dust. No more shall you return.
And yet you say, 'This one speaks of the Bible.' Well, as I have said, 'Even the enemy of your souls knows scripture.' You are a foolish people. And yet there are still some who see with my eyes and hear with my ears. But who else now will you bring into the Colosseum to watch? Who else will compete in the games and vie for your attention? "
WHEN THE DAM BREAKS OPEN WILL YOU BE READY?
10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Matt. 24
"What would you say my people? What would you say to Me in this hour? Would you plead with Me to stop the killing of innocent babies? Would you ask that I would hold back my hand from the tide of destruction? For I AM a God who answers your prayers, but I do not betray your free will.
I will hold back the tide but not much longer. For the turning of the tide is about to break lose. Your entire land will be turned upside down. For those things uttered by my true apostles and prophets will come. But to those who have prophesied falsely in my name, I tell you that the words that you have spoken will come back to haunt you.
But there are some who still adhere to my words in this hour. There are some who have been hidden in Me. These are those who will come through many trials victoriously.
But when the dam breaks open will you be ready? Will you be ready when the economy fails? Will you be ready when your churches close down? Will you be ready when all kinds of people forsake you because of the truth? I tell you that these things must come. For the world and everything in it, is wearing out. "
MAN HAS CHOSEN THE DARKNESS INSTEAD OF THE LIGHT
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. John 3
"Press on, says the Lord. Press on past the trials and the tribulations. Press on through all kinds of ordeals. For in this world you will have tribulation, but don't despair for I have overcome this world. I have come to give you life, and that life is the light of man. But many have seen the light but they chose the darkness instead. The light has come, but the days of darkness are soon upon all.
Why would man choose the darkness instead of the light? The light has come and it exposes the darkness all around you. For all hideous deeds are done in the darkness; for the darkness shrouds them.
For the light is the light of man. It has guided his way upon this earth. But man has often chosen his own light to guide him. He has chosen the work of his own hands. He has chosen his own abilities and talents over Me. For those talents and abilities will enable you to cross this earth for a period of time, but eventually you will come to the end of your resources, and you will find out that your fragile frame is only good for a moment of time. "
YOU MUST REPENT MY PEOPLE
6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. Isaiah 64
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matt. 7
"You must repent my people, for your sins have come up to Me. I see everything thatcomes up from the earth. I see the pain and the suffering. I see the lives of many as they are spread out across the globe, and my Spirit is grieved. Many seek Me as a God of abundance, thinking that I will reward them for all of their good deeds unto others. But what they don't realize is that it is only by faith in Me that one is given new life. It is not by all your great works that you will enter my kingdom. Your righteous deeds are like filthy rags to Me! Truly, you would do works because of your faith, but it is only by your faith in Me that you will come into my kingdom.
Your great churches are filled with the many trappings of man. You seek out the finest robes for your ministers to wear, and yet I AM the One who will give you the clothing of my kingdom. You say that you are rich, and yet you are poor. You stomp and scream at many of the conferences that you go to thinking that you are filled with my Spirit. But I tell you that these are just childish antics to Me. Some of you who claim to be apostles and prophets are merely showmen. For you would take the people's money and prophesy that they would receive millions. I tell you that on that day I will say that I never knew you!
I tell you that you must buy oil that is refined in the furnace. You must allow Me to refine you into the image that I desire for you. For this world is slowly slipping away. The world will be filled with darkness, and only those who have drawn closer to Me will make it through the days ahead. This nation and this land will never be made great again. The pomp and the circumstance and the divisive antics will eventually bring you so low that you will collapse.
But I have a people who have separated themselves unto Me. They have been refined in the furnace of affliction and they have been tempered by Me. "
