Word of the Lord for 2012 - Hope Deferred

What you are about to read is a compilation of what the Lord has shown me over the past several weeks regarding the year to come. I don't believe there is anything special about the turn of a Gregorian year, I do know people are more open to the prophetic at this time of year and because of that are willing to hear what the Lord says. While this is the word of the Lord for 2012, much may not happen in 2012. I have been publishing these words for a decade. In that time it has become apparent that the Lord shows me what is going to happen, but not when. Once in a while when takes place, but not often. Such is the pattern of scriptural prophetic utterance. These words are meant to comfort, warn, reinforce, correct and empower the Body of Christ. They are not meant so someone can play the market better or make a business decision. While some seems to be "bad" news, there is much good news. I am not a prophet who gives platitudes about things without measurable substance. It is my mandate as a prophet to a nation to declare things so the army of the Lord in partnership with the angel armies can do great exploits. You already are enlisted. Here is your intelligence report...future history.

The Lord Speaks Regarding the Year to Come:
I will be a strong tower in the face of the enemies attempts to deceive and capture those called by my name. This is the time when my elect must have supernatural vigilance against deceptions and schemes of the evil one. Live in the Truth, reject the lies. The father of all lies is roaring and roaming about to capture whomever he can. Do not be deceived. Look for truth. It will not be easy to find. Lies come packaged as truth and are sweet to the ear.

The truth is not to be found in old systems, beliefs and traditions. It is not to be found in cultural norms. It must only be found in Me and My word. I release truth to keep you free. Every lie comes packaged as something you will want to believe in. It will come packaged as fairness, justice and mercy yet the lies will sting you if you believe them.

It will be false mercy, false justice and false fairness that will deceive even the very elect. The shame of these lies as they are revealed will be heaped upon those who had been so easily bewitched by them.

This deception is not unto death even though deception can cause death. This deception will lead to a loss of hope, an emptiness that comes when you feel a sense of betrayal. Death of your hope.

As My light shines brighter and brighter in dark places, the deeds of darkness will be revealed. Do not be shocked when those in high places are revealed as a deceiver. The prime method of the deceiver is accusation. Be careful not to accept every accusation of the enemy against anyone. Be vigilant when you hear the accusing tongue. It is a snare rooted in the fear of man.

The most secret well hidden deceptions will be rooted out and exposed by My Spirit.

This exposure is a manifestation of My love for My people even above the shepherds I have placed over them. The demands of truth will cause some of the shepherds to stumble and some even to fall.

There will be no hiding place. Many will see these things come to pass and proclaim it is My wrath. It is not wrath. It is judgment to bring into adjustment, to make the wrong things right. To bring your world into proper bearing. On Earth as it is in Heaven.

Among My people, as these things take place, it will be like a deep breath of fresh air. It will be a relief. Grief will manifest as change comes but only for a short season, then joy will come in the morning. It will be a GREAT JOY.

The false altars and false gods erected in your life must be torn down. The high places that exalt themselves against the knowledge of ME must be burned up. They will be shamed and destroyed. The nations that roar against ME will go silent as I laugh at their vanity in my judgments. There will be no other Gods above Me.

There will be short term conflict and confusion. Wars, rumors of wars, warnings, setbacks, outbreaks and attacks. They will cause people to wonder at the signs. I will show MYSELF in these things and you will have no fear. The end is not yet.

I am establishing an order based on who I AM. Do not be deceived, I AM NOT MOCKED…NOT EVER.

Mockers and scoffers are coming to the end of their day and will find themselves bowing the knee in shame.

I am the God of love. That love is shown in correction that nudges you toward your best interests. Don’t despise my corrections. I know your beginning from your end. I will not harm you. I will bring you to MY expected end for you. You are immortal until you have fulfilled your purpose in Me. Trust Me. You are safe.

I have already seen your present pain played out to your victorious end. These birth pangs are revealing me at work in your WORLD.

Do not be deceived by any who say, LOOK, this is that, He is here, or there. As my kingdom expands, it will fill the whole earth thru My BODY which is YOU. You are part of everything I am doing on the earth. You are part of every prayer you pray. You are my doer of greater works.

Governmental authority from the Body of Christ will wield the sword of the Lord once again. Deception will be exposed and Demonic influences ousted in MY NAME.

Find Hope … Find Joy … Find Rest … Find Peace in 2012

What the Lord is Showing me as a Prophet:

2012 - A Year of Deferred Hope That Can Make Some Hearts Sick

YET in all this those who persevere to the end are the victors

Delay is not denial, it’s just delay delay delay - but not denial

People need hope. There will be hope displayed, but not as we think it will come. Hope can only be rooted in trust .. and there is less trust in man than there was in 2011 - The Crushing has begun. False Idols with Clay Feet are being crushed by the Rock of Truth.

The issues of our hearts will be exposed by our actions and reactions to the changes to come.

This will bring a new prosperity for those who see that this is the opportunity of a lifetime. This will be the best of / worst of time - for others

Prosperity will come for a season. It will be the time to store up against that day to come. Do not be foolish as the harvest comes into the hold.

As we move into God’s protection He is gracing his people with Provision in accord with their generosity towards others. The issues of our hearts are revealed. Psalm 112:1-10 will be manifested.

The angels of God are responding to acts and words of faith - without which it is impossible to please Him.

They are opening the way, protecting the saint, bringing provision and ministering to every need. Angelic hosts stand ready to act in accordance with the confession of our mouth, if it’s of faith they move in power, if it’s in doubt they stand and wait. The angels of God cannot respond to doubt and unbelief. The demonic realm will move quickly to reinforce your doubts. There is no in between, there is no balance in the things of faith. There is either unrestrained Faith in the Mighty God or Unbelief. There is no middle ground.

Prepare to hold the line, Prepare to advance. This is not the time to be passive. The war is on and you are in it, you are a soldier in the battle, the conscription came when you were sealed with the Mark of the Holy Spirit. It is your uniform in battle. There are no pacifists in this warfare, only enemy or friendly combatants or casualties. The call to battle is sounding clearly. Mount up. Be brave, for the Lord of the Angel Armies says, “I am with you always, even to the end of the age”.

The enemy will not remain silent, he will use every lie to try to keep you on the sidelines. If he can get you to hold back, he believes he will be able to exercise his power over you.

The father of Lies, the enemy of your soul, will deceive with much more skill and sophistication in the year to come. This will be the year where discernment for the child of God must operate at a supernatural level. Truth has become the first casualty in the warfare that is upon us. It will become a rare commodity. If you buy a lie it will put you in chains. Truth will be there, but it will come in unusual ways. You must not put your trust in man, in media, in politicians, in money…they carry a curse on them that will strangle and even kill you if given the chance. New forms of truth telling will emerge. Look for them.

God is in the process of cleaning up and cleaning out the influences that are evil influences on the earth. The deceived and deceivers are being shut down. God hates a lie and will show it by his power.

In seeking for the word on the economy I received a vision of a slow moving train coming down a track onto a bridge that is being built as the train moves forward. There is a safe destination on the other side of the gorge it is striving to reach. IF the builder fails the train will fall to destruction. Eventually if the weight of the train becomes too great the bridge cannot support it and it will fall. There must come a reset, a time for things to stop, a time for the train to stop moving ahead. While this stall takes place it provides time for the builders to construct proper bridge underpinnings to allow the train to get to the other side. That reset is coming.

There is an upbeat mentality right now, that will continue. People are earning more than they were a year ago. People are working. People are getting their personal economic houses in order. New open door opportunities in an atmosphere of yet great risk are everywhere to be accessed. For those with supernatural vision the opportunities will be windows of blessing without containment.

Inflation will continue to accelerate as nations attempt to monetize debt, but it will not hold…the bubble will burst.

THE WORLD ECONOMY must go thru this recovery. It will mean long spells of convalescences. Painful re-directions. Painful cuttings away. Painful reconstructions.

The will mean an overturning of rulers. City state national global

There is a loss of faith that the old broom can sweep clean any more. The world will demand another new broom. The last new broom is broken. This has ever been so and it is vanity. Ecclesiastes 4:13-16

Violence and riot will persist, but weaker. Reality is taking hold. The lies will be revealed. The fascist, antichrist, anti-Semitic roots of the rioters will be revealed. Their real motivations will be discovered and they will fall out of favor.

2012 good start then stumbles in June:
  • Sideways and down
  • Starts and Fits
  • 3 up 4 down
  • 4 down 3 up
  • 3 up 4 down
Energy prices will stall as new sources cap any rapid increases

Metals will remain volatile but without real direction except in relationship to currency fluctuations.

Danger remains for those at ease in Zion
The danger is not from terrorists, that is a false flag to reduce our rights, the real threat is from a police state now forming in the USA. This is a demonic plot to legitimize actions that will be taken against the Body of Christ when persecution comes; if nothing changes.

The greater Danger is from insurgency, fascists, radicals and anarchists from within our borders

Dangers from national crisis
  • Europe
  • China
  • NORWAY??? That’s a surprise to me

Will be better at the end of 2012:
  • Venezuela
  • Iraq
  • Libya

Will be worse at the end of 2012:
  • A Dividing Nigeria
  • Egypt

Natural and Geophysical Changes for 2012

Weather calms globally - Less destructive than 2011

Mountains Moved - New Washings Away in South Africa

Huge wave - Indonesian Region

Ring of Fire Active - 180 degrees, new tectonics alive in the Americas.

International Political Manifestations 2012

Islam Stumbles - Confusion - Intensity - Disillusion - Disaffection

Footing and fleeting
Solid for a while and yet some flee when the pressure is too great

The giant stirs. Exercising new movements. Like a wounded animal. Yet the influence of Christians in the land invisibly restrains the hand that would harm

Unsteady future. Backlash against the reverse of freedoms. A second Russian revolution against the reviving oppressors.

Continent of Africa
A whole continent breaking up and breaking down.
The demonic influences ratchet up the pressure on the great body of Christ across the whole of the Continent. Martyrs everywhere. No peace.
Of African nations:
  • One shall fail
  • One shall Stumble
  • One shall be overthrown
  • One shall be broken apart
I get no vision over India. It all seems so dark yet with several lights. I don’t understand this.

Mexico makes a seemingly positive turn and then…a serpent rises up

2012 Will be a Year of Discovery

Secret treasures in hidden places will be revealed Isaiah 45:3

Drugs and medicines that heretofore have been assumed to be safe and efficacious will be revealed to be a new danger. Statins. Antidepressants.

Faith in drugs as treatment will be reduced. Revelation of the corrupt combine of drug companies, Medical Professionals, Insurance companies and government will be revealed staining the reputation of all shaking faith in the system.

The landscape of energy production around the world will change much in 2012. Nations that till now have been prime producers will find themselves increasingly marginalized by new and substantial discoveries. New discoveries in Northern Africa, In South America (Argentina) and the Russian Territory of Kamchatka will cause the landscape to begin to shift. The geo politics of restricting oil flow by a cartel to capture revenues will have backfired as the pressure of high prices causes extraordinary exploration… Secret Treasures in hidden places

As populations in western countries are aging, new levels of positive engagement will be discovered. People working longer. People forming new relationships. People finding better health. New discoveries that will cause many to do better than they were. A discovery of disturbing mental changes that can be ameliorated without drastic treatments will create peace of mind for many.

A New Discovery in Antarctica reveals something unexpected - Changes orthodox thinking dramatically.

These and other revelations will seem to have little impact at the start, but the resultant developments will have long lasting powerful influence for good.

The Church
There will be tremendous new pressures on organized religion. Many will fall away because of it. Many will find the peer pressure too great. It will be easier to be unaffiliated.

Yet in the year to come those who hold fast will find new levels of unity, new levels of victory, new avenues of outreach, new life, new anointing and new joy.

The old way will quickly pass away. The new will come. It will change much and will cause many to not recognize what is happening. This change will be considered loss…but it is in the purposes of God is about to sort wheat from chaff by the wind of His Spirit; and his winnowing fork is already in His hand. Luke 3:17

The deaths of ministries and congregations will lead to vigorous new fellowships and relationships in the Body of Christ never before imagined. New methods of ministry, taking advantage of new technologies will push aside many of prior centuries assumptions and operations.

The decline in the Denominational Body of Christ as we have known it in the west that will accelerate. There will be many fewer churches in that mode at the end of 2012 than at the beginning. There will be more informal fellowships. Pulpit ministry is going thru a transition that will not reverse. The body of Christ must now do less better. This will result in a dynamic new revival and move of God, but it will not fit the patterns of the past.

These changes will not only be driven by the young, but by those of many years. It will shock the established churches. The result for those who get on board with the move of God in this area will reap a great harvest of souls. For those unwilling to find what God is doing and work with Him will become discouraged.

The year to come will cause many people formerly hostile to the Gospel to reconsider the claims of Christ and come to redemption. This will happen as those who once were in the House of God become offended and walk away. The wind of the Spirit is separating wheat from chaff.

Breakthroughs will reveal the Sheep and Goats - Visible Separations. The pure Bride emerges.

There will be fewer disgraced leaders than in 2011. The warning shot across the bow has worked…for now. More will come later. God is cleaning house. He loves his sheep above his shepherds.

Decline of traditional Media Ministries (TV and Radio) will happen as new ways of connection expand. An emergence of new voices…some that have been present but undiscovered. A new pure voice without guile finds national visibility in 2012. Watch.

The Pressure of the Global War on Christians Intensifies
Many fall away under the pressure.

Only the pure Bride Remains

The battle will be fierce

The enemies head is being crushed once again.
He roars, he thrashes about, he threatens, he claws, he bares his teeth…
He is doing whatever he can to intimidate the victorious
But he is under YOUR FEET and cannot harm you as long as you know your position in Christ (the anointed one and his anointing)

In the middle of the warfare…there will be extraordinary Revelation. The plans of the enemy will be revealed - Supernaturally to those with eyes to see and ears to hear.


The Lord KNOWS who will win the elections in 2012 in the USA. I have been given a vision of the result of this cycle. Wisdom demands that I do not share what I have heard. There is no benefit to anyone by doing so. There is an example of such in scripture. Like the Shunemite woman in 2 Kings 4:23-26 ... “It will be all right.” or “everything is fine.” We must keep our eyes fixed on the mercy of God and HIS deliverance, then everything will be all right.

During the electoral cycle the constant accusations of racism and other hate filled words will pale in comparison to the situation that has come to pass.

About President Obama. I am concerned when I see him. Since he took office I have seen him in a death mask. There is a constant threat on his life. The primary threat comes from a radical and disappointed left wing fringe. When I saw the anger and riots this summer I knew that spirit was loose in the land.

At the beginning of 2011 I warned of a threat against the President. Later in the year (October) I warned that an attempt of assassination would occur in November. Just such an occurrence took place November 11 when Oscar Ortega-Hernandez opened fire with an AK-47 on the white house from a distance away. He fired at least 12 times. Several of those bullets hit the upper floors of the White House. The president was not home, so he was not in danger.

With the killing of Bin Laden, the murder of Kadaffi and several other leaders in the world with the endorsement of the USA and the President, there is a sowing and reaping dynamic that has me very concerned.

Watch and Pray.

An Apology

I have another blog. It is mostly about politics and observations from my perspective. I post some pretty intense things there.

It is NOT in any way prophetic. It is pure opinion. I try to keep them separate...but from time to time I get the wrong post on the wrong blog.

So, if you see something that is seemingly wrong in placement, it probably is.

I had one brought to my attention and I am sorry I got it in the wrong place.

I will try to be much more careful.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

The Spirit of Sudan

I received this from a Nigerian Brother today via email. The attribution is at the bottom. It's worth reading. When I read it I shudder to think how close we are in the USA seeing this.

Early in September 2011, while fasting and praying for the national prayer retreat of The Preacher scheduled for later that month, the word of the Lord came to me, “Pray against the Spirit of Sudan.” South Sudan had become independent from the oppressive Islamic north only a few weeks earlier, on July 9. I understood the word to mean that the Satanic principality that had sponsored Sudan’s very oppressive anti-Christ Islamic regime, and sustained twenty cruel years of a most ravaging civil war between the Christian south and the Islamized north, having lost that territory, was seeking another abode, in Nigeria. I took it as a personal prayer point even though, later, I had to send out sms’s to a few friends. The message as I understood it seemed well explained by Luke 11:24-26, especially the first half of verse 24:
24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man[a territory, Sudan], he walketh through dry places, seeking rest ; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.
25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.
26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.
This reminds me so much of the Kenyan experience decades ago, when a group of intercessors in a teacher training school suddenly had a vision of furious red horses galloping towards their country. Intercepted by timey prayers, however, the horses diverted from the border of Kenya into Somalia next door. Somalia has not been a normal country ever since, with little rest from wave after wave of Islamic insurgencies.

In September 9-11, 2011, there was the retreat of The Preacher in the Middle Belt city of Jos, Nigeria. In the process of the prayer vigil on the second night of that retreat, a sister with remarkable prophetic gifts raised a prayer concern about Nigeria. She used the same words to describe her burden as she called us all to pray against “the spirit of Sudan.” I was frightened. It was no mere coincidence. I realized at once that God had confirmed His word in the mouth of a second witness. Anyone who has gone through the horrors of one civil war will never wish to experience another. Ask them in Liberia, Sierra Leon, Libya, and ask the elders in eastern Nigeria who suffered the Biafran war.

Four days before Christmas, we posted the online message, “When Feasting is Unpardonable Sin ,” warning that in this season of Christmas festivity and the threats of Islamic jihads in Nigeria, it might not be permitted for everyone to enjoy a feast when the land mourns. Yesterday was Christmas, but it was not to be for everybody. I had been fasting for many days, and could not but go on fasting. St. Theresa Catholic Church at Madalla, on the outskirts of Abuja the capital city of Nigeria, was suicide bombed at the close of Christmas service as worshippers were queuing to leave. Over 40 deaths have been reported, besides several injured and inestimable property damaged. What jolted me was the Yahoo News on the tragedy: “Boko Haram is trying to ignite a sectarian civil war in a country split evenly between Christians and Muslims” It sounded so much to me like the word of the Lord about the agenda of the Spirit of Sudan. Could that be a third witness from the mouth of a prophetic internet donkey?
What further bothered me in that news were the remarks attributed to Muhammadu Buhari, who had also contested at the last presidential polls. In the opinion of that retired army general and former head of state, these assaults are a pointer to the failure of the present government of Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, a man who has been under the severe assaults of high level sorcery and political snares; such manipulations and sorceries that it takes more than a Sunday school T-shirt to bullet proof.

As we relish, on one hand, the lofty condemnations of the premeditated brutalities of Boko Haram, we, on the other hand, share the worry of Jesus in Luke 11:17, about the paradox of a house divided against itself. Oh, that Prophet Daniel could come down and read us these glittering handwritings on the wall!

About a year ago, a retired army General who, like Buhari, is a northern Muslim and former military ruler of the nation, threatened tacitly in the papers that there could be a civil war attributable to Dr. Jonathan if he did not ‘gentlemanly’ abdicate his presidential ambitions to the ‘north,’ all of whose prominent candidates were Muslims.

Some hundreds of years ago, Egypt was a very Christian territory, as also was Libya and the rest of northern Africa. Today, the story is pathetically different. Ephesus, where Paul once preached, which had the first of the seven churches to which Jesus sent special letters, it is said, does not have a church anymore. Its candle has gone out, as Jesus had warned in Revelation 2:5. Islam has taken over that city, and others like it.

May our children not rise up in the next fifty years to curse us fathers and mothers whose knees were too stiff to bend, whose lazy brains and fearful hands knew nothing to do while the spiritual topography changed against their tender future. As a Bishop recently feared and warned, may they not have to spit on our graves someday, that while we pursued our insatiable greed and stuffed our protruding bellies with stolen wine, we wasted our political privileges in the houses of parliament and the other corridors of economic and political power, shamefully unlike another woman centuries ago who in similar circumstances swore, “If I perish, I perish” (Esther 4:16).

Jos, a city whose name is said to have been derived from the acronym, “Jesus Our Saviour,” which used to be the paradise of many missionary agencies in Nigeria, is now like ancient Berlin with an invisible wall marking the risky boundary between the Muslim north and the Christian south of the city. The city has already conceded some precious grounds to the threatening advance of Islam. Port Harcourt and Lagos are not too south from the ‘northern’ threats. America is not as far away anymore; not farther away now than next door. South Africa and Kenya and Britain are already marked for their own seasons. Ghana and Zambia are stirring. France seems almost like a helpless captive. The list is long. Every place is under watch. It is a global threat, “while MEN slept” (Matthew 13:25). Feeble women and little children may sleep, but when adult men also sleep in some seasons, things go wrong.

There are notable parallels between the two nations of Nigeria and what used to be Sudan. Today, Nigeria is reckoned as the foremost evangelized and evangelistic nation in Africa, a missionaries-sending nation next only to USA in the world. In the 1950s and earlier, the Sudan Interior Mission (SIM) similarly sent missionaries, and especially evangelized the northern parts of Nigeria. Sudan had a dominantly Christian south and an Islamized north. So does Nigeria. Both territories boast a large land mass. Sudan had and still has a species of Islam that is fundamentally fanatical and very intolerant of any other faith, like the Boko Haramians of northern Nigeria. Sudan used the means of politics, governance, and violence (in fact, wars) to pursue its agenda of enforcing sharia over the entire country. The tools have been no different with those who have been invoking the spirit of Sudan into Nigeria. The sounds of ‘Boko Haram’ are the sounds of that spirit already knocking at our door.

‘Boko Haram’ is a political mask. May God expose the masqueraders behind the mask. Boko Haram is a unilateral declaration of war awaiting escalation whenever ‘the other’ should have been provoked enough to reply. When a cock struts out to challenge the sleeping neighbour next door to an early morning fight, check properly; its owner is behind it, waiting with a machete. The coordination, professionalism and sophistication of Boko Haram are not those of some ragtag terrorists or ‘militants.’ They have the intelligence and other backings of certain foreign governments, of notable foreign and local agencies, royal fathers, as well as serving and retired politicians. Until recently, when God exposed one of their moles among the members of parliament, who could have believed that those dissidents had such ‘noble’ membership and patronage? The general public will be shocked the day it learns about the size and skill of their army and the sophistication of their weaponry; but our prayer is that God may do again in Nigeria what He did to Pharaoh and his armies when He overthrew both horses and their riders in the sea (Exodus 15:1). Amen.

Last night, during my midnight prayers, the date “January 12” came to me as having been marked for a surprise attack in an unsuspecting location. I wish I can right away tell where, but it could be somewhere in one of the ‘safer’ southern cities. Watch and pray; pray with eyes open in this season.

Often, one hears the understandable remarks of aggrieved southern Nigerians, that the country should split, and “let them go their own way.” It is not so easy, for many reasons that this is not the place to explain. Besides, by such expressions, unawares, these make prayers in support of the very Spirit of Sudan.

Someday, soon, the mystery of the fifth seal shall speak from under the altar in Heaven, and there shall come “the great day” of the wrath of the lamb that sits on the throne. In that day, there shall be no hiding place in the dens and rocks and mountains “from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb” (Revelation 6:14-17). May that day come soon, in Jesus name. Amen.

May the world join us now to contend against the Spirit of Sudan. We would rather have those prayers now than relief materials later for a war-torn people, should that wandering spirit somehow find abode here, aided by the bloody invocations of its armed priests that have already offered more than sufficient provocations.

If this stirs you, please, pass it on. If it does not, delete it. One will chase a thousand, but two can put ten thousand to flight (Deuteronomy 32:30). Amen.

face book:

Kim Clement: Warning to Middle East

Kim ClementProphesied December 1, 2011 – From The Garden (Iran and Syria):

Regarding Iran and Syria: "Woe to those who make unjust laws and to those who issue oppressive decrees. What have you done, depriving the poor of their rights and withholding justice from the oppressed of My people, making widows your prey, raping young women and robbing the fatherless? What are you going to do in the day of reckoning when disaster comes from afar? To whom are you going to run for help? Where are you going to leave your riches?

"Nothing will remain but to cringe among the captives and fall among the slain. Yet for all of this, My hand shall be upraised; judgment against you. Woe to you, Iran. Woe to you, Syria. The rod of My anger in whose hand is the club of My wrath – you would run? You would flee to another godless nation? Watch – I will dispatch you against the people who anger Me. What would you do to seize the money, to seize the treasure, and to snatch the plunder and then to run? Where will you run to? Where will you go? Would you run and seize all the images? Would you seize the idols and run?

"I will punish the kings of Iran and Syria and others for the willful pride of your hearts and the haughty looks in your eyes." God says, "By the strength of My hand I will do this. By My wisdom, because I have understanding. I will remove the boundaries of these nations. I will plunder their treasures like a mighty one, like I did before as I subdued kings." Therefore God Almighty says, "Your own warriors who were once sturdy, I will send a spirit of division, a wasting disease if necessary, but the light of Israel will become a fire, the Holy One a flame."

And Israel, what about you? Have I not already spoken at the remnant? The survivors will not rely on any other nations. They are self-reliant, for they rely on the Lord, the Holy One of Israel. A remnant has returned, and they've returned to the mighty God, and though the people be like the sand by the sea, Israel – just a remnant – will stand up and watch the destruction of these that would come against them.

Therefore, this is what God says: "My people who live in Israel, who live in Zion, do not be afraid of Iran, do not be afraid of Syria, do not be afraid of Russia. Do not be afraid of these nations who try and beat you with a rod and lift up their hands against you as Egypt has endeavored to and will." But God says, "My anger against them will end this destruction. I will lash them with a whip, like I did before." This is the word of the Lord.

The Winds of Change are Coming

Prophesied December 3, 2011 – From The Garden (Winds of Change):

As the winds are blowing in Southern California, as I'm praying now, it is a sign, because God did speak to me about the winds earlier and the fact that this would be a sign that southern California will actually be blessed, will be restored, or come back, and God will shine again on this state. Though great evil has come on this state – He spoke to me about this and said – even though great evil has been propagated from this state, once again He will restore it.

There will always be evil. There is evil in every state in America; there's evil in every nation in the earth. Evil will not be wiped out until Christ returns. However, the dominion of evil will not stand here. Already God has judged many of those that have stood up and been arrogant in this industry. So therefore, what I've received today now is the winds are blowing very strongly as a blessing, as a sign that certainly He is destroying certain levels of evil, certain levels of dominion and principalities in this region.

Yesterday was a day where I spent a lot of time in spiritual warfare – hours, in fact. Today I'm sensing an excitement in the Spirit. I'm sensing anticipation. I'm sensing that the winds will not only blow in Southern California but in America. The winds of change are coming. That's what I'm hearing as I'm praying right now:

The winds of change are coming. These are not just coincidences. All this – the weather patterns – has to do with what God is saying and actually doing right now. I'm continuing my prayer – Southern California, California will be restored. God will not wipe it out and send it into the sea. That is His word and that's what He's saying right now. I will continue to pray for America and see what He has to say about this nation, because there has to be a change of God. The winds of change are coming, and let's see what takes place. It's very exciting.

"From a Recession to a Depression was the Plan of the Enemy, and that Will Not Happen"

Prophesied December 4, 2011 – From The Garden (Economy):

It is day four and today is very different. There's a lot of brokenness, and I'm finding that I'm "weepy," which is sometimes a sign of joy, true joy. It sounds strange, but it is the case that sometimes when you have joy tears come. There's also a feeling of humility. The fact that America, and many of the nations that God is setting up to bless – they have been humbled, these nations, and we'll probably be more appreciative as the economy turns slowly around. I say slowly because it is the hand of God that has allowed this for a season, though I must say the Kingdom of God has flourished; even though many have struggled, we've survived, and it's at its worst now.

That's what came to me as I'm praying, and I have to share this with you, because it's day four and it's regarding the economy. These are words that came to me: "The plan of the enemy was to humiliate; the plan of God was to humble America and to humble many of these nations. Those who have been in strong positions financially and have been cocky and have held their head up and strutted like a peacock, now they shall be humbled and shall be likened unto the fox, and there shall be no hole for the fox, no place to rest.

These nations that have been proud and these nations that have said, 'We have control because of the oil and various other means,' the change will bring them to a place where they will look and say, 'Now it has come to us. Why? We looked at the west and we looked at the great eagle and we said, "It has fallen," or "It is falling." Now it has come upon us, for we thought we could trust in our soil, we thought we could trust in that, and in the resources that we had, but look – America and the nations have been placed in a position where they are now, a resource that has overtaken and blessed them.'"

So I heard these words: "From a recession to a depression was the plan of the enemy, and that will not happen." God said, "I will save them from the ultimate, and that is a depression, and then out of the recession." So the word of the Lord that's coming to me as I'm praying now and calling to Him is that there is a strategy that God has, and please don't take this wrong, and this is not only regarding the political aspect, for those that disagree with Reagan maybe, but the Lord spoke to me and said, "I honored him, and so there will be a re-visitation of Reagan."

Now obviously this is not speaking about reincarnation, but there will be a spiritual and political re-visitation of Reagan, "And I shall even place someone there that will have that in their heart. As I blessed Reagan and caused this country to come forth and be restored, so it shall begin. The era shall begin in the next seven years. Now look up, for your redemption draws near. And even though they shall say, and you will hear their words, 'This recession shall lead to a depression,' but what of, what of the Euro Zone?"

God says, "I spoke to you about a unity that shall take place. Now look up. Again I say to you, look up for your rescuer is near and the people of God shall be blessed, for I will reveal secrets to them on how to invest and where to invest so that I can take them out of debt. The greatest investment that they can make," the Lord says, "is into the Kingdom of God and into the destiny that is ahead. Therefore, do not sow in places where there is death. Death does not take place in the future; death does not happen in the future. Death always happens in the present. There is no such thing as death in the future; it takes place in the present and therefore sow into the future, those that speak of a future, those who speak of the good news of reaching the earth. That is the future."

Now, these words came to me as I'm praying, and I'm still here now. We had tremendous, tumultuous weather here yesterday; the winds blew greatly. Today there is peace. The sun is shining in this state, in any event. This is a sign to me; as I walk up and down this garden, these are good signs. These are signs for His people to rejoice, and in the presence of the Lord there is fullness of joy. So, as your prophet and spiritual leader to many of you, I tell you what He has shown me on the fourth day.

Take note of this; pray it, for the will of God can only be brought about by the prayers of God's people, the people of Christ – the princes and princesses of royal Blood. Those are the ones that God listens to. So I ask you to pray with me now and hear my words. The first investment that you make is into the Kingdom of God, and specifically into the future. The present often is death. People who do not proclaim what God has for them in the future are those that are dying and offer nothing. We do not sow into that which is death.

So, Lord, I encourage the people of God to sow and to give. And Lord, in this State, they have heard the word of the Lord. I pray that they'd begin there. And, Lord, open up the doors and show them where they should invest, where there's success, where there's victory, where there is growth, where there is progress. And Lord, many will become debt-free in the year 2012, many of them. Many of them, Lord God, will become millionaires. This is not an impossibility – and even some, billionaires.

Why would I say these things? Because it is God's will to prosper, for once you are prosperous and you have humility, you have the Kingdom of God and the progress and the advancement of the Kingdom of God. That's what His word is, so I bless you from my garden.

It's time for the TRUE PROPHETS of GOD to stand up and the PRETENDERS to sit down and be quiet

I take no glory in, or credit for, the word of God given through my hand. I take a great deal of heat for it. Many ridicule the whole idea of a year end prophecy. Still, there is an openness to the prophetic at the turn of the year. That openness makes possible to speak to the spirit of man in a way you couldn't in June or July. There are so many flaky inaccurate so called "prophets" spouting off this time of year, it's time for proof of the pudding. I no longer take part in "compilations". No one holds these so called prophets to any accountability. Prophets no longer test nor judge the prophets. I hold myself out to be tested. You can judge. I don't do this for glory, I do this because the world has become jaundiced to the true word of the Lord from His prophets. It's time to end the fiasco. It's time the true prophets of God stand up. We are in a critical time and the world is crying out for a true word from God. We have had enough of the airy fairy words without any substance. We must have truth, future history. This is that. IF you are going to decide what to hear, you must first judge what was spoken, then decide:

Those things from the Word of the Lord for 2011 are in RED:

On January 1, 2011 the world had not yet experienced

Kim Jong Il was still alive and there was no one from the south visiting North Korea till now
Korea: Leading to ONE

Hugo Chavez was assumed to be well...until it was announced he had cancer
Venezuela: Paper Tigers burn up

There was no indication that Putin would run again in Russia nor would the clamp downs begin
Russia: Drifting to a former state

China was assumed to be solid as a rock, now it is finding it difficult to continue it's growth
China: Change - Fragile - Stumbles

The governments in Australia and New Zealand were considered set..then change happened--- a nosedive for the Prime Minister after the elections of 2010 and Earthquakes in NZ in Feb that shook the foundations of it's government.
Australia - New Zealand: Turning a new leaf

Europe has seen a backlash against the needful economic changes...none of that was even indicated before Jan 1, 2011
Europe: Backlash and restraint. Re Order

Brazil overtook Britain as the worlds 6th largest economy.
Brazil: A nation in redemption

Egypt, Tunisia and Libya were still nations under a seemingly stable dictatorship
Africa: Divided and Dark. A pall hangs. Much yet to be done, but MUST be done by Africans. Not all help is helpful.

--- false governments, false dependencies, will be torn down. They will be shown for the false assumptions and accusations that they always were.

Again and again the word Fragile was used to define the economic condition of the USA.

There had been no earthquakes in Oklahoma before 2011. Now there were in September
There will be earthquakes, center of the USA,

Japan had never suffered such a profound quake before 2011. Now it has in March
There will be earthquakes in the far east

Temperature extremes became normal. Coldest winter ever, hottest winter ever. All "unexpected" except to God.
The weather will be severe as a norm. VERY COLD. VERY HOT. Abnormal will become normal.
Spiritual leaders with great calls were dethroned this year.
You must not place your trust in any man during this time. I have demonstrated MY power to dethrone false gods in the past year, even those who were considered great in the Kingdom, to be brought down. This will accelerate. Those who carry a great call will be judged more severely.

Some even died. More than ever before.
  • David Wilkerson
  • Pastor Zachery Tims
  • Jessy Dixon and 5 others
Central Banks around the world attempted to monetize the debts of the nation. Debt limits became a key issue. More than ever before. The arguments became over who's money was worth what. This was new in 2011.
Money made up. Fiat money to pay off overblown indebtedness.

Cities and States that had never before declared bankruptcy did this year. Cities at least and effectively states like California and Illinois were declared bankrupt. All this in 2011.

Public Unions became a power unto themselves. They have exercised civil disobedience in every state capital where their power was challenged. The revelations of the amount of money public employees earn as compared to the private sector became an issue in 2011.
Many cities as well. The primary cause of this bankruptcy is pensions owed to individuals who work or worked for the states and cities. These pensions are unpayable. There is no political will to deal with this. The result is that defaults will happen. There will be no checks sent. Riots and other forms of civil unrest will happen. Unions will attempt to muscle money out of the public sector. The public sector has no money. So the public sector will attempt to muscle the money out of the private sector. This is a fleece the people mentality. It will in fact result in violence we have not seen in this nation in decades.
This prophecy before the riots in Madison WI or Columbus OH.

Copper thefts across the nation have become rampant. People stealing air conditioners for the copper. Stealing copper from buildings. This became epidemic in 2011. It didn't start till May of 2011.
People will steal from one another out of need. Something we have not seen since the middle 1930s. Violence and lawlessness will increase.

The reality of the worthless college degree and the huge student debt attached to it became a bubble and a crisis in 2011. The occupy movement was about this too. Big education with no job.
People with huge student debt will find no place to apply their education no matter how good it seems to be. There will be no jobs. These young people will become a difficulty in our economy as they clamor to take their place but are woefully unprepared to do so. There will be a backlash from the youth.

All in all it has been a year of lost civil rights. The government has tightened it's grip more and more.
Terror efforts are going to come. Fear will be the result. Do not fear the one who can kill your body, fear only the one who can destroy your eternal soul.

The year ended on a higher economic note than anyone thought at the beginning of 2011.
There will be tidings of great doom. Hopelessness, decline, so it will appear. In a place captured by materialism as a god; will materialism need to be torn down and destroyed. This will result in good, a new normal based on stability, trust and Faith in ME. Do not fear the drumbeat of doom, hope is on the horizon, but it is hope based only in ME.

You may want to read the whole of the word from January 1, 2011 to get a flavor for what is to come.

Political and economic manipulation can forestall things for a little while but people must go thru these things to enter into the new place Father has prepared. The old system had no future whatsoever. This is a new thing. We must embrace it.

IF you want to know what is coming prophetically, you must look to the true prophets of the land. They may not bring great news, but they report future news so the People of God can be prepared.

I say all this to prepare you for the warnings and encouragements to come. IF y0u want to see how God deals with false prophets, see the Book of Jeremiah. It's pretty clear.

One thing is for certain....this year is spelling woe to those who are at ease in Zion. It's a call to enlist in a war that is already declared. Choose this day...

Stay tuned!

A Word for 2012: New Leadership, New Boldness and New Provision -- J. Lee Grady

As I have prayed about the coming year, I’ve sensed three clear directives.

Some people are terrified of 2012. They worry because the Mayans of ancient Mexico mysteriously ended their 5,126-year-old calendar on Dec. 21, 2012—as if they expected the world to end that day. This silly hypothesis became the basis for several New Age books and a goofy disaster movie, 2012, in which actor John Cusack avoids meteors and earthquakes just in time to get his family aboard the modern version of Noah’s ark (built in China!) before the rest of the world is destroyed by a tsunami.

I’m not afraid of 12/21/12 because (1) Ancient Mayans never actually said the world would end in 2012—and even if they did, they didn’t have an inside track to God; (2) Doomsday predictions have never been accurate; and (3) Jesus holds the future in his hands. As long as I’m in relationship with Him, it doesn’t matter what happens on earth. I’m secure.

Despite strange weather patterns, global terrorism and the specter of an economic crash, I’m actually optimistic about where we’re headed in 2012.”

Despite strange weather patterns, global terrorism and the specter of an economic crash, I’m actually optimistic about where we’re headed in 2012. And as I have prayed about the coming year, I’ve sensed these three clear directives:

1. Expect major transitions in kingdom leadership. The world is focused on leadership in the political arena, but God has been working behind the scenes preparing men and women for kingdom assignments. Our focus should not be on Democrats, Republicans, Obama or Romney. 2012 is not about a presidential contest. Just as David was prepared for the throne during years of testing in the wilderness, a new battalion of Christian leaders has been trained in obscurity. They will be commissioned and appointed in the new year. And their influence—not that of a political figure—will shift the nation.

Jesus said He would call the humble from the back row and seat them at the head table. He openly rewards those who pray, fast, give and serve in secret. God will exalt those who have walked with Him in faithfulness and crucified selfish ambition. As in the days of Elijah, He has reserved thousands of prophets who have not bowed their knee to Baal. They have been in isolated caves of preparation for years, and some have been on the verge of quitting. A wind of new strength will cause them to stand and assume their positions.

2. The sound of evangelism must be amplified. The prophet Isaiah said: “Get yourself up on a high mountain, O Zion, bearer of good news, lift up your voice mightily, O Jerusalem, bearer of good news; Lift it up, do not fear. Say to the cities of Judah, ‘Here is your God!’” (Isa. 40:9). Just as the early disciples prayed for boldness in the midst of persecution, and the Lord answered with a supernatural earthquake (see Acts 4:29-31), the Lord wants to turn up the volume of our message and empower us with a spirit of might. We must put aside our timidity. We cannot hide our light under a basket.

Many churches in the United States have not made outreach a priority. We’ve catered to the saved and preached to the choir. The Holy Spirit wants to remodel and revamp weak churches and make them into powerhouses of spiritual impact. He can take a church with a four-cylinder engine and outfit it with eight; He can turn up the volume and cause a quiet congregation to shake a city. In 2012, expect small churches to be revitalized. God specializes in using small armies, like Gideon’s group of 300, to catch the enemy by surprise.

3. Supernatural provision will be released. The great recession has brought heartache and difficulty to families, companies and churches, but it has a silver lining: God has used it to purify motives, refine faith and refocus priorities. The Holy Spirit has exposed our materialism, and His fire has also consumed unhealthy prosperity doctrines that tainted the church with scandal and greed.

Today, a new passion is arising in the church to fight injustice, feed the poor, show compassion to the broken and share Jesus’ love with unreached nations. We’re tired of giving money to support charlatans who demand private jets and luxury treatment; we want to serve the orphan and the widow in the spirit of Christ. And we are asking God for His supply, knowing that if God can feed a multitude with one lunch, or provide for a family with one jar of oil, He can open sources of provision we never knew existed.

Missionary Hudson Taylor said:God’s work done in God’s way will never lack God’s supply.” I pray you will experience this truth in 2012.

Isaiah 66:9 says: “Shall I bring to the point of birth and not give delivery? … Or shall I who gives delivery shut the womb?” Don’t fear the future. Receive new strength from the Lord as you step into this new year. No matter what disappointments or delays you have encountered during the past season, don’t give up. God brought you to this point, and He will not fail you now.

Break Old Cycles for 2012 by Chuck D. Pierce

Make a list of old cycles. Now is the time to break from any old cycle that has held your promise and destiny in captivity. Declare that your Passover time of deliverance is now beginning. Ask God for signs, wonders, and miracles that will intervene in old cyclical structures of your life.

Be secure in timing. Declare that everything in your past be repaired and restored so that your future can be unlocked. Look up and see the window of heaven that is opening over you. Gain victory in strategic warfare. Do not be afraid to ascend in worship.

This is a time to experience God’s glory. Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Ask God to open your eyes so you can see His glory. Make a list of promises. Even make a list of stirrings that have been in your heart that have never come to fullness. Let His presence direct you into the path of deliverance and pass over from captivity to freedom.

Position yourself for your future. The best is ahead!

Ras Robinson on Christmas is over and the New Year is upon us

December 27, 2011. Be encouraged today. Christmas is over and the New Year is upon us. The Lord says, "Celebrate the good and spit out the bad. The grain is always better than the husk. Think on the good, believe the good, speak the good and do good things. You gave to people in need. That blessed Me to see. You are generous to the poor, the widow and the orphan. That which you give will never be ...wasteful because it fulfills My will and I always bless that. Never give for the purpose of being seen. There is in it no reward. But oh my, what multiplied favor comes in seasons like this when your heart is tender to give.

Acts 20:1-2 (GW) "When the uproar was over, Paul sent for the disciples, encouraged them, said goodbye, and left for Macedonia. He went through that region and spoke many words of encouragement to the people."

Faith is the light of time by Jean-Pierre de Crussade

Time is............too slow for those who wait; too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve; too short for those who rejoice; but for those who love...... time is eternity..............

Faith is the light of time, it alone recognizes truth without seeing it, touches what it cannot feel, looks upon this world as though it did not exist, sees what is not apparent. It is the key to celestial treasures, the key to the unfathomable mystery and knowledge of God. Faith conquers all the fantasy of falsehood; through faith God reveals and manifests Himself, defying all things.

Faith removes the veil and uncovers eternal truth. When souls are given the understanding of faith, God speaks to them through all creation, and the universe becomes for them a living testimony which the finger of God continually traces before their eyes, the record of every passing moment, a sacred scripture.

The sacred books which the Holy Spirit has dictated are only the beginnings of divine guidance for us. Everything that happens is a continuation of the scriptures, expounding for us what has not been written. Faith explains the one through the other, in which souls can discover the key to all its mysteries......Faith is only living at its best when sensible appearances contradict and attempt to destroy it.......To find God is good in the trivial and most ordinary events as in the greatest; is to have not an ordinary, but a great and extraordinary faith..............How delightful the peace one enjoys when one has learned by faith to see God in this way through all creatures as through a transparent veil.

Darkness becomes light and bitterness sweet...........There is nothing that faith does not penetrate and seek out. It passes beyond darkness, and no matter how deep the shadows, it passes through them to the truth which it always finally embraces, and from which it is never separated

A Word for Christmas

Today has been hard for some reason...then:

Philippians 3:
12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. 16 Only let us hold true to what we have attained.

17 Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us. 18 For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies of the cross of Christ. 19 Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things. 20 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.

As I wallowed a bit in self pity this morning, I was reminded by the Spirit of God (John 14:26) that I had taken my eyes off the high calling of God. That I was allowing the spirit of the world to bring me down. The news is not great, people beating each other over shoes. Greed. Bombings. Worldly junk. Then there are my personal remembrances and regrets. Wasted life opportunities. Ghosts of Christmases Past.

Paul screams in my spiritual ears as he writes to the Church at Phillipi. I will imitate him. I will set aside those regrets. I will press forward. I can't unring the out of tune bells in my life. I can just try to make the new bells I ring sound better.

I must not allow myself to be conformed to a world I find so foreign. (John 15:18-19)

At some point in our Christian faith we must draw the line and stand for something that will infuriate people. It is happening now in India, Malaysia, China, Iraq, Iran and, at a lesser level, even in the United States. But this is the path that Jesus took and He calls us to follow him. He chose us to break the holds of worldly conformity and to bring us into significance. We are chosen out of the world into our true citizenship; the Kingdom of heaven. Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor,
I know that if I become so earthly minded I will be of no Heavenly good. I resolve to cut it off now. This word was for ME...and maybe one other.

Pressing on ...Merry Christmas

NEW WINE BEING POURED OUT from ElaineTavolacci


Yesterday as I was speaking to a friend on the phone she told me that her browser says "delete recent history". Not knowing much about computers she then asked me "Should I delete my recent history? As soon as she said that, the Lord quickened this word to me. He wants us to remove anything from the past that is holding us back from receiving all that He has for us, especially our "recent history." When we do this we will be prepared for the New wine that He is about to be pour out.

The Lord says I am about to pour out my new wine in abundance. There will be a great acceleration in the days ahead. Many of you will advance expeditiously in to what you were called to do. Do not fear moving forward at an accelerated pace but as you do, allow Me to prepare the new wineskin to receive the new wine. As the new wine skin is fashioned, it will be able to contain the new wine with ease. Do away with all hindrances in your life. Leave behind religious mindsets that are holding you back from receiving and allow Me to renew your mind with My word. Walk in humility and throw off any pride and arrogance that is harnessing you. Be willing to release anything that would keep you from receiving all that I've called you to be. Guard your heart from the subtle entrapment of the enemy.

Many of you have cried out to hear My voice, and as you refuse defiling thoughts and line your thoughts up with My will, then you will learn how to hear My voice with clarity. As you are observant of My leading I will guide you in your decisions. As you discard of your old nature you will be more aware and attune to My voice in the daytime as well as during the night. You will recognize when I speak to you in dreams as I reveal My plans and purposes to you. Don't go back to your old ways but look ahead to the future that I have for you. Stay in that intimate communion with Me so that your conscience will not be seared and the process of acceleration will not be hindered. Learn how to deal with every opposition that arises and every challenge that comes your way. In this season of the new wine being poured out, I will bring you in to the place that has been assigned to you as you move forth into the plans that I have for you says the Lord.

Mark 2:22
And no one puts new wine into old wineskins, or else the new wine busts the wineskings, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins.

Ephesians 4: 20- 24

But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

Hebrews 12:1
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.

In Fresh Water

Last night I attended Crusaders Church in Chicago. I have been so busy in business that I haven't darkened the door for a while. It's Christmas week. I wasn't going anywhere last night. I didn't know what to expect. I went because I have been so hungry for something real. Something fresh. Something clean.

I wasn't disappointed.

During the time of worship I had a sudden wave of what could only be a sensation of fresh water crashing over me. Clean. Clear. Cool. Fresh. It's been a long time. Some streams are less than refreshing.

It was interesting because while I was experiencing this Apostle Eckhardt began to declare a moment of Niagara flowing over us. Fresh water. Newness. In the same flow.

I love when that happens. When in sensitivity the Spirit of God speaks to people all at once.
I needed that. There were some 1 Corinthian 14 moments. During the preaching, a precious sister asked Apostle a question, He smiled and said, "This isn't a class", but took her question, respected and answered it. Earlier a young man walked up and brought a note on a different translation of a Bible Verse Apostle was reading from. It gave additional depth to the understanding. Apostle was gracious and sensitive.

I wonder how many major leaders in the Body of Christ are that flexible and humble to have this kind of thing happening in their services. There may have been 5-700 people there. Only those most sensitive to the flow of the Holy Spirit walking in fullness of maturity and anointing can operate at this level. I have talked of this in the past. Five Fold leaders must learn to understand what the operation of Holy Spirit is at any moment and be ready to fit in where HE leads. That might happen even in the middle of what was a well prepared sermon the Spirit of God might move on someone to interrupt what was happening to say something else. That takes confidence. I have seen it only a few times and it was always good.

This will take real maturity and humility among leaders in the future. Most won't get there. Here's the word of the Lord:

I will restore the fallen tabernacle of David, I will bring back the soul of MY Body on earth. I will see my people with a new heart and a new mind in the unity of MY Spirit.

I saw that manifested last night. I needed to see it. I had gone stale in my spirit. I needed a washing of regeneration I wasn't getting on my own. The congregational influence of reaching up, pulled me up.

The old song from David Ruis, Wash Over last night:
When the tears are falling
And the tears blow 'cross my mind
When the waves are breaking
And the sun is hard to find
When the deep is calling
And the waterfall's my home
When I'm all but drowning
And I'm treading on my own

I cry a silent prayer
That comes out of me
It's a mystery
Come wash over me
Wash over me
'Till I can't take any more
And I dream that my voice is heard
In a secret place
Where I bare my face
Come wash over me
Wash over me
'Till I can't take any more

Prophetic Headlines

I don't KNOW Terry Bennett Personally. I have watched his work. He seems to hear from God in a unique way. God gives him Headlines in Advance. I had published some from a meeting he had in KC but was asked to remove them. I did. The headlines he got last December were erie, so many came to pass.

SO, I commend this to you. I honor the prophetic.

Some recent headline prophecies:
  • Pharmaceutical Nightmare; Uncovering the hidden intentions and cover ups, big money vs. the hidden long-term health effects of drugs.

  • Overhauling the FDA; unveiling the corruption of payoffs and buyouts.

  • The Trial for the Unborn - the conscience pulse of our nation. To vote or not to vote, and a nation hanging in the balance.

  • The Taming of the Shrewd! Restrictions and transparency measures increased toward Wall Street investors, insurers, and the business of profit.

  • "I Fell into the Burning Ring of Fire," The Ring of Fire Ablaze!

  • "The Burning of Our Fields," from historical practice to modern catastrophe.

  • The Season of Burning; a South Chicago Blaze, a New York Blaze, and a San Francisco fire.

  • The Embattled Bill of Rights, the Basis of Our Freedoms on Trial.

See them all

Reviewing the past year in Prophecy

Last year about this time I sought the Lord over the year to come, the one just being completed.

Some prophetic things that came to pass worth noting:

"The world you are living is becoming more and more fragile. More than ever. Things you thought were unbreakable are now breaking.
So many things we thought could never break down are now globally collapsing. Economies. Governments. Systems.

Words for 2011 in the world:

* Korea: Leading to ONE
* Venezuela: Paper Tigers burn up
* Russia: Drifting to a former state
* China: Change - Fragile - Stumbles
* Australia - New Zealand: Turning a new leaf
* Europe: Backlash and restraint. Re Order

I am about to break the education system in your nation that has become a place teaching doctrines of devils. Thesis that are created by the enemy of your soul. Look for changes in this year. It has been going on for a while, but I will accelerate the changes in this year.

There will be great upsets in the year to come in the physical. Birth pangs. There will be earthquakes, center of the USA, California, Alaska, far east. The weather will be severe as a norm. VERY COLD. VERY HOT. Abnormal will become normal.
You must not place your trust in any man during this time. I have demonstrated MY power to dethrone false gods in the past year, even those who were considered great in the Kingdom, to be brought down. This will accelerate. Those who carry a great call will be judged more severely.

Every nation pays it's overwhelming national debts with monetized money. Money made up. Fiat money to pay off overblown indebtedness. Our international partners will put up with some of this because they have ways of laying off the risks in buying asset preserving instruments.

States, cities and individuals have no such power. Right now many states in the USA are bankrupt. Many cities as well. The primary cause of this bankruptcy is pensions owed to individuals who work or worked for the states and cities. These pensions are unpayable. There is no political will to deal with this. The result is that defaults will happen. There will be no checks sent. Riots and other forms of civil unrest will happen. Unions will attempt to muscle money out of the public sector. The public sector has no money. So the public sector will attempt to muscle the money out of the private sector. This is a fleece the people mentality. It will in fact result in violence we have not seen in this nation in decades. People will die. Military will be needed to quell the riots. The result will be the reduction of human rights and civil liberties.

This State and City bankruptcy will foment an economic and social collapse. One that no politician can cure. Not republicans, tea party, democrat. No one. This will cause crimes of necessity. People will steal from one another out of need. Something we have not seen since the middle 1930s. Violence and lawlessness will increase.

People with huge student debt will find no place to apply their education no matter how good it seems to be. There will be no jobs.
These young people will become a difficulty in our economy as they clamor to take their place but are woefully unprepared to do so. There will be a backlash from the youth.

You can read the whole of the prophetic word for 2011 here.

King David's last words. Let them be mine too

When David was on his deathbed, he said to his son Solomon: "I want to tell you why God has blessed me. I want you to know the secret of my ministry." Listen to David's last words to his son: “The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me, and His word was on my tongue” (2 Samuel 23:2).

David was saying, “I didn't trust in my knowledge and wisdom. I didn't trust in any part of my flesh. I was a weak man—but I depended on the Holy Spirit! Every word I spoke was under His unction and anointing. His words filled my mouth!” -David Wilkerson

Why the Earth (and the Heavens) Are Shaking By Francis Frangipane

francisfrangipane_forwebAs the year 2011 comes to a close, it is hard to be unaffected by the massive earthquakes that occurred these past years. Remember, it was just 2004 when the great South Asian Tsunami roared along the Indian ocean, suddenly rising and striking the coastlines of nine nations. Over 230,000 people died, and millions more were left grieving and homeless. Scientists tell us that this great disaster not only changed the landscape of Asia, it actually caused the planet to wobble on its axis.

But the physical shaking was not over. Nine and a half months later, in October, another devastating quake struck, this time in the Kashmir region of Pakistan. It killed nearly 80,000 people. Millions again were left without homes or shelter. Then, along with quakes in Chile and New Zealand, the horrific Haitian earthquake struck and another quarter million lives were lost. Lastly, a huge magnitude 9 quake and subsequent tsunami struck the northeast coast of Japan, raising the specter of a nuclear meltdown and the widespread poisoning caused by radioactive contamination.

There is something happening in the earth. Massive earthquakes. Huge death tolls. Unprecedented storms. It may all be a coincidence, but I cannot help but call to mind the Lord's word, "Yet once more I will shake not only the earth, but also the heaven" (Heb. 12:26). There is certainly a great shaking occurring in the nations.

Remember, Jesus warned that "great earthquakes" would be part of a variety of natural calamities, which He called "birth pangs," that would introduce the End Times (Luke 21:11; Matt. 24:8; Mark 13:8). In other words, He told us to expect natural disasters to increase both in magnitude and frequency, as though the earth itself was recoiling against the weight of sin. As Isaiah said, "The earth is shaken violently. … It totters like a shack, for its transgression is heavy upon it" (Is. 24:19-20).

If we are, indeed, living in the last decades of this present age, we should not expect the planet to remain calm or tranquil. God will use these calamities to draw multitudes to Himself, but we should be aware they will probably grow in severity.

Spiritual Shaking
As disasters increase so also will fear increase, but it should not be so with us. For it is also during this time that the Lord promised that the ruling powers of darkness will be shaken from their position of influence and rule. The Lord will "shake not only the earth, but also the heaven" (Heb. 12:26). This verse is not referring to the highest of heavens where God dwells. The heaven mentioned here refer to the spiritual realm, also known as the "heavenly places" elsewhere in the Bible (Eph. 3:10). These "heavenly places" represent the spiritual dimension from which "the powers … the world forces of this darkness … the spiritual forces of wickedness" exert their rule over nations (Eph. 6:12).

Thus, the Lord says in Isaiah "It will happen in that day, that the Lord will punish the host of heaven on high, and the kings of the earth on earth" (Is. 24:21). The last great shaking will affect both the natural and spiritual realms. Likewise, Jesus warned that during the time of the end "the powers of the heavens will be shaken" (Matt 24:29). Remember, the shaking of these powers denotes the "removing" of their place of influence and rule (Heb. 12:27). In other words, every demonic stronghold that hinders the coming forth of the kingdom of God on earth is ultimately going to be confronted by the power and authority of heaven!

One may argue, "These verses refer to the end of the age." Yes, the finality of this twofold shaking---things on earth, but also heaven---won't reach its maximum power until just before the Lord returns during the tribulation period.

However, I believe it has already begun on a certain level. Consider the former Soviet Union. Here was the largest geographic empire in the history of the world; its military was powerful beyond measure. The USSR was avowed atheistic in nature, and it spread atheism to all nations under its influence. Yet, in an amazing and unfathomably sophisticated exercise of the divine will, the Almighty judged the spiritual powers ruling Soviet Communism. The USSR fell without a violent revolution, without an insurrection or war, suddenly and dramatically it disintegrated.

Not only did this great empire implode, it was on Dec. 25, 1991, that Mikhail Gorbachev resigned as president of the Soviet Union, effectively ending the Soviet Communist Party. The next day the Soviet parliament acknowledged the dissolution of the empire.

What a great and enduring sign! On Christmas day, the very day we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the demonic power ruling the USSR was shaken and toppled from its place!

Will the Lord's final confrontation against the spiritual powers of wickedness be much more significant? Since the fall of communism, missiologists tell us that more people have come to Christ worldwide than the sum of all conversions since the first century. Of course, Russia still has its problems, but let us not overlook what has happened: a godless, evil power fell from its place of rule. Since then millions of people have come into God's kingdom! (Anyone feel like shouting here?)

Even while the physical world will suffer birth pangs, I believe we are going to see other major "powers in the heavens" come down just as dramatically as the former Soviet Union. I know it is possible that Islamic factions will merge and become stronger, but remember, there are currently millions of Christians praying for these Muslim nations. Somehow, whether sooner or later, the power holding sway over Muslims is going to unravel. There will be unexpected, but significant breakthroughs. Muslims by the millions will open to the gospel and find Christ as their Savior. This is the prayer frontier God set before us right now.

We will also see major demonic powers fall in the USA. I believe it will not be long before serious restrictions will begin to curtail abortion in the USA. The demonic power that has blinded lawmakers and justices will be confronted and toppled. Let us, therefore, continue to pray for Supreme Court Justices to be appointed who are both pro-life and God-fearing.

It seems to me that we are living when, at least on some level, the "powers of the heavens" are being shaken. Our prayers and personal involvement in the affairs of life play a major role in toppling these powers of darkness. If we do not quit praying, we will see significant changes unfold before our eyes.

Finally, let us remember that, even while things on earth and in heaven are wobbling, we have received "a kingdom which cannot be shaken." (Heb. 12:28). Beloved, God has an unshakable kingdom to which He calls us. It is the place where Jesus rules as King, from which place every knee in heaven and on earth shall bow.
