Making the Mountains into Molehills - The Future is Lower than you Think

This morning as I drink my second cup of coffee I have been reflecting on Isaiah 40. It was the passage that many years ago, was prophesied by John Hinkle to begin to come into effect beginning June 9, 1994.

I have been asking the Lord what the future will look like when the fullness of Isaiah 40 comes to pass.

I believe He has given me a glimpse:
3 A voice cries: "In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD;
make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
4 Every valley shall be lifted up,
and every mountain and hill be made low;
the uneven ground shall become level,
and the rough places a plain.
5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed,
and all flesh shall see it together,
for the mouth of the LORD has spoken."

The fullness of this is the mountains that have received so much attention in the past several years will be made low. Business, Government, Education, Religion, Family, Entertainment, Media. The large enterprises that look like a mountain today will after the change will be low hills. Molehills. They will be local. There will be no competition to occupy them. There will be need to occupy.

IF you drew a circle of ONE mile around where you are sitting right now....and everything outside of that mile was was just those who live in that are that is left...would there be any of the mountains left?

Consider also the absence of any TV, Radio, Electricity, Internet. Remember it's all in that one mile radius. You can't get out, no one can get in. No fuel anyway.

There would still be education by parents to children, some informal government, some spiritual activity, families, people would play piano or read, they might get news from a neighbor. In other words, all the mountains would now be local.

In that day, the Glory of God will be revealed greater than it is now. The mountains have all worked together to mask HIS Glory. Even in Religion and Christian Media. They have all become mountains of their own. Empires. Agendas. Institutions. They will all come down in that day. Nothing will mask his Glory any more. All FLESH SHALL see it together.

All flesh is grass,
and all its beauty is like the flower of the field.
7The grass withers, the flower fades
when the breath of the LORD blows on it;
surely the people are grass.
8 The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever.

Our frailty, our weakness, our humanity and our puffed up estimation of ourselves will fade. It will be like the Grass. Fading away. Our regard for the importance of others, particularly celebrity and leaders of the seven mountains of today will become a mockery as the reality of our ends becomes clear. Only JESUS will matter. His word. It will survive and stand forever.

10 Behold, the Lord GOD comes with might,
and his arm rules for him;
behold, his reward is with him,
and his recompense before him.
11 He will tend his flock like a shepherd;
he will gather the lambs in his arms;
he will carry them in his bosom,
and gently lead those that are with young.

In that day we will see him for who he is.. A Savior with GREAT POWER who uses it to cradle his people in his arms. Those who rest in him, who rely on him for their protection and provision will live in fullness. Those who struggle against his love will see his power manifested in an unpleasant way. His reward and His recompense is with him.....

12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand
and marked off the heavens with a span,
enclosed the dust of the earth in a measure
and weighed the mountains in scales
and the hills in a balance?
13 Who has measured the Spirit of the LORD,
or what man shows him his counsel?
14Whom did he consult,
and who made him understand?
Who taught him the path of justice,
and taught him knowledge,
and showed him the way of understanding?
15Behold, the nations are like a drop from a bucket,
and are accounted as the dust on the scales;
behold, he takes up the coastlands like fine dust.
16Lebanon would not suffice for fuel,
nor are its beasts enough for a burnt offering.
17 All the nations are as nothing before him,
they are accounted by him as less than nothing and emptiness.

In that day Nations will not mean anything other than a historical fact. Once there was a USA. Once there was a France. Once there was a Russia. That day will reveal God's attitude toward the mountains of Governments. Nothing and emptiness. The wisdom the supposedly comes from Government is like a drop in a bucket, like dust on a scale. Meaningless.

21 Do you not know? Do you not hear?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
22It is he who sits above the circle of the earth,
and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers;
who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
and spreads them like a tent to dwell in;
23 who brings princes to nothing,
and makes the rulers of the earth as emptiness.

Think of the most important influential person you know. Or ten of them. Jesus brings them to nothing. Emptiness. Grasshoppers. He doesn't hate them. It isn't punishment. He just is destroying the top of the mountains to bring them low. Think of the most important people on the tops of all the mountains. Even the most important religious leaders. They will be brought to nothing. They too will have their circle. They will be emptied of any importance. They really already are.. It's just that we see them differently. Masking of the Glory

29He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
30Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
31but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.

In that day...people will find strength they never knew. The Lord will renew it. They will become Eagles once again. They shall find that they are the ones that they have been waiting for and their calling is the ordination of increase.

Chapter 40 is about learning that those things we see as big are small and those thing we thing are insignificant, particularly ourselves are huge, strong and in authority. It's an upside down kingdom.

I am looking forward to the manifestations of the Sons of God in that hour. It's coming. Those that have heard the word will prosper, find protection and supernatural provision. Those who find strength in any of the mountains about to be brought low will find themselves lost to the future.

Let those with ears to hear...hear what the Spirit Says in Isaiah 40

The Silent Harvest By Francis Frangipane

A few years ago, I had a dream in which I found myself inside the mind of a dying man. The man had been in a coma for some time; his family had been praying, but they did not know whether or not he had accepted Christ. All they were sure of is that, throughout his life, he had resisted their efforts to lead him to Christ.

In the dream, I became so acutely aware of the man's state of mind that his thoughts, feelings and struggles almost seemed my own. Although his eyes were nearly closed and his vision clouded, he could see his loved ones at his bedside. I watched as he tried to reach toward his family, but outwardly his arm never lifted. Perceiving his thoughts, I heard him speak their names, but no sound whispered through his lips. A loved one holding his hand asked, "If you hear me, squeeze." He heard and pressed his fingers against hers, but no movement was seen; his hand clearly remained limp. He was conscious, he could hear their prayers, he felt the warmth of their kisses on his face, but was perfectly incapable of responding.

The pride and isolation that had, throughout his life, stood guard over his heart were gone. A physical catastrophe had overtaken him. Death approached, and he knew he was unprepared for eternity. Submerged beneath his motionless exterior, a war had raged for his soul, which the Lord won. Subdued by the relentless force of God's love, he was finally at peace. It was during his time in the hospital that he had silently prayed and accepted Christ as his Savior. I was watching his last effort to tell them as life ebbed out of his body.

Suddenly, monitoring alarms ripped through the muffled silence of the room. His heart beat one last time and I found myself looking down at the body of a man who had just died. The room was buzzing with nurses, while his family huddled in a corner, grieving. The idea of their loved one dying without receiving Christ was more devastating than the reality of death itself. I stirred and then woke. Yet, just as I left the dream, the Lord spoke to my heart:

"Tell them he's with Me."

God is Good Although some time has passed since I first had this dream, I am increasingly aware that many of God's people carry a deep abiding heartache concerning the death of an unsaved loved one. Obviously, this dream does not apply to all, but there are some for whom this experience is divinely directed. Thus, I submit this to you in a general sense, because the Holy Spirit has assured me He will bear witness to your heart that this word is for you.

I have also felt an urgency to pass this dream on to you. The Lord has an important work for you. However, the enemy has used this unresolved loss to sow doubt into your soul. Not only are you troubled about your deceased loved one, but you are carrying doubts about God's love, and you doubt also the power of prayer. Your confidence in God has been compromised. Yet, it is precisely at this time that you need to stand without doubt for other members of your family.

Beloved, though there are many questions about the mysteries of life, we must not let the unknown obscure the face of the known: God is good. We know God loves us because He sent His Son to die for our sins. Indeed, Jesus said, "He who has seen Me has seen the Father" (John 14:9). When we look at Christ, we see God, and we know that God cares.

Additionally, some of us have lost loved ones in sudden tragedies, where they seemingly had no time to repent or turn to God. Let me remind you of those who have faced near-death experiences. They tell of seeing their "life flash before [their] eyes." Indeed, they say that time itself seem to stop or move into slow motion. I believe that, even in what seemed like a "sudden" death, time slowed to a crawl. According to their testimonies, evidently, there often is enough time in this altered state to see and ponder one's entire life - and to make a decision or even call upon the name of the Lord.

In spite of what we do not know about life's many mysteries, one thing remains eternally true: God is our loving Father. He does not desire that any man perish, and He will fight to save us, even to the moment of our death. Let us, therefore, cast our burdens upon the Lord, for He genuinely cares for us. And let us again run with endurance the race set before us, for He has promised that even for those "sitting in the . . . shadow of death, upon them a light dawned" (Matt. 4:16).

Lord Jesus, thank You for dying for my sins. Lord, there are many issues I do not know, but I do know that You are good. Those things I do not understand, I give to You. I trust You with my life, and I put in Your hands the care of those I love.

Kim Clement: Protection for Israel, America, and More

Kim Clement

Prophesied on July 16, 2011 from The Den:

Those Who Are With Us Are Greater Than Those Who Are Against Us

Our Israel trip is turning out to be really fantastic in terms of what the Lord is giving me in regard to that. I'm going to share with you what came to me about the month of September and how the enemy is going to try and do something all 30 days of September – one-a-day attacks. They're going to call it the "grand 9-11." They're going to take the ten-year anniversary – and this I know only by the Spirit. I was praying this morning and the Lord said to me, "Kim, you must be prepared because governments are going to think that you have inside information." I'm not saying this loosely; I'm saying it very seriously. He said to me, "You must be prepared for scrutiny, until they realize it really is actually the gift of God." It'll get so accurate, they will begin to wonder if there are any ties.

Now, I've had that happen before and it's quite amusing. There are so many things around the prophetic gift; there's so much chaos and so much spiritual activity, it's amazing. Jane's had to live with it for 32 years, and she's just so used to it now; but things just go crazy and we just deal with it and move on. We have had visits from the FBI and the Secret Service because of people taking prophetic words and misrepresenting them as well (in that instance it was). But we live with it and it's fine, but I'm preparing myself.

This is what God said to me. He said, "Can you deal with it when it happens? Because it's going to happen because of what I've got in store for you to share regarding what the enemy's doing; just like Elisha – he knew exactly what the enemy's plans were – but he had to deal with the opposition, being surrounded by the Syrian army." He dealt with it by not seeing the army but seeing the unseen, which were the angels. When I read that story, the angels were actually round about Elisha, so they were actually protecting him; then he told his servant, "Those who are with us are greater than those who are against us." That's where our song, "Angels" came from. Anyway, I'm telling you that because I need you to cover me and my family always in prayer, because when God starts giving deeper revelation and it becomes more accurate, the enemy really gets upset because he always attacks the revelation of God.

Israel and America

So, Israel's going to be fantastic. As I woke up this morning, I heard the name of a city and where this whole thing would be launched from in Israel. It doesn't mean you mustn't come. I'm going! Don't worry, nothing's going to happen to you. We're going to make it the "ungrandest 9-11" ever. We're going to topple their little boat. This is good news; this is great news. That's all I have to tell you.

You may be saying, "But Kim, you've got a bad report about 9-11 – the ninth month of 2011, ten years after the destructive 9-11," and now God is showing it and revealing it, and I'm making it known that this will not succeed. There'll be attempts, and they want to take the entire 30 days of September and have one attack a day. I heard that from the Spirit; I don't Google, I don't do any of that stuff. I've heard nothing, but I heard (I may as well tell it now, and the Lord spoke about it this morning), He said "Jaffa."

When I heard that I knew it was in Israel somewhere, I just wasn't sure of the location. So I got on my phone and sent a text to Sunil, and I said, "Please tell me exactly where Jaffa is." Then he said to me, "It is in the Tel-Aviv area." And then I felt by the Holy Spirit, by revelation, that this was not specifically a location – it's coming to me now, too – it's not specifically a location but a code. It is a code. And as I'm saying it now, I'm feeling the strong presence of God that I feel when I'm in the garden praying – that this could be a code.

Of course, I know people in higher positions, especially in Israel, under this present administration that I can at least get this to. One of them is very high up, very close to the Prime Minister Netanyahu. So I'm going to deliver this. I'm going to Israel next week (spoken by Kim on July 16, 2011). Now as I've said to you, I've cancelled all my big platform meetings; the next platform I stand on with a crowd is going to be in Jerusalem. But next week on Sunday I leave with just a skeleton team – Jane's going with me and we are going to go there. I will then present this that I've heard today. I believe it's going to safeguard them.

It is true that God gave Israel a prophet to preserve them and to take them out of bondage. That's in Hosea – you can go and read it. I've read it many, many times; the Lord gave a prophet to preserve Israel. The prophetic word will preserve Israel. The prophetic word will preserve the people of God. I believe that. The word I've given to you, I just delivered it to you. I can prophesy it if you want, but I think we all have enough understanding to realize that I'm under the Spirit of prophecy right now and more will come out. It will happen as time unfolds. And as I'm on the Den, sometimes as Charlie is next to me, it triggers the prophetic. You see, Charlie's on all the time now.

What will happen is that probably more will come out. Probably as well the Spirit of the Lord does not want me to reveal much more because of security reasons. My voice goes to a lot of people, so I think that could be one of the issues. I'll say it again. There has been a plan; terrorist organizations have gotten together (I'll get more later on); they would like to celebrate by killing as many, or exploding, or doing what they did on 9-11. They realize they cannot do it in that magnitude – how many people died, 3,000-something? – they realize that, so what they want to do is a mini one that will make a statement over the month of September 2011.

This was not revealed to me in March last year when I started my fast and God said to go to Israel. This was revealed to me now as we've made all the plans, so there's no getting out of it now. I'm not afraid at all because God has said to me there'll be more revealed about this. I'm not the FBI, I'm not the Secret Service or the security of Israel, so just mentioning that and then the word "Jaffa" came out will be enough. Maybe if there's more I'll prophesy it, but you and I, our duty is to pray. Prophetic prayer will preserve Israel and keep her safe, keep America safe, keep the people of God safe, all over the world where these attacks are planned. That's the word that I received. It's not bad news, it's good news, because as He protected in the time of Elisha, so He will divert this as well.

Prophetic Image Expressions


Loud is not the Anointing - it's just loud

There is a story in 1 Samuel 4:5-11
When the ark of the LORD’s covenant came into the camp, all Israel raised such a great shout that the ground shook. 6 Hearing the uproar, the Philistines asked, “What’s all this shouting in the Hebrew camp?”

When they learned that the ark of the LORD had come into the camp, 7 the Philistines were afraid. “A god has come into the camp,” they said. “Oh no! Nothing like this has happened before. 8 We’re doomed! Who will deliver us from the hand of these mighty gods? They are the gods who struck the Egyptians with all kinds of plagues in the wilderness. 9 Be strong, Philistines! Be men, or you will be subject to the Hebrews, as they have been to you. Be men, and fight!”

10 So the Philistines fought, and the Israelites were defeated and every man fled to his tent. The slaughter was very great; Israel lost thirty thousand foot soldiers. 11 The ark of God was captured, and Eli’s two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, died.
The sound of worship at the presence of the Lord came up in a shout so loud it shook the ground. I have been in those meetings. My ears still ring.

YET..the loud didn't guarantee victory, it didn't gin up God to defeat the enemy. It resulted in the death of the sons of the priest and eventually his own death when he heard.

I think of this when I am in meetings where the meeting leader cheerleads people to engage in a loud shout. Or when the PA system is turned up to 11 and you feel the bass drum in your kidneys.

Loud isn't the can be sometimes but mostly it's just loud.

IF I find myself in pain from the noise, I just won't go back. I wonder if I'm alone? I wonder if I'm the only one? I bring ear plugs. That helps. I was at a conference recently where at the entrance table there were Mints and Ear Plugs given out to people as they attended.

REALLY? Do we really have to give ear plugs? REALLY??

How about some sanity in all this.

If you see ear plugs being installed...turn it down.

That probably isn't the word of the Lord exactly, but this prophet with hearing issues can't take much more of the 11's on the volume knob.

95 DB is about all anyone needs. Buy a DB meter. Use it.

Mark Chironna: God Says, "Repack Your Bags and Travel Light"

The following was prophesied by Mark Chironna on June 28, 2011 at The Master's Touch International Church in Longwood, Florida:
Mark Chironna

"I Am Going to Refresh Those Who Have Been Outrunning the Chariots"

Word of the Lord: "...where I am bringing them, for indeed in this hour of transition and change I am moving My people into a dimension that is fresh and vital and vibrant with a fresh touch of My presence and My Spirit. And to what would I liken these days? Remember now the journey of Elijah in a season of his weariness, after a great victory, where he indeed overcame the forces of Baal and Ashteroth, called down fire from Heaven and then opened the heavens by My command and made it rain.

"And from that moment, after he outran the chariot to Jezreel, he was threatened by Jezebel and her demonic hoards and he entered into a place of isolation and even depression. And there are many of My sons and daughters who have been running well, but did not expect the forces of darkness to come and hit them with threats should they continue to advance.

"But I am going to refresh those who have been outrunning the chariots, even as I refreshed My servant, My messenger Elijah. And I placed before him, at the moment of his greatest weariness, the cake and bread of angels, and the food that I placed before him sustained him for the forty-day trek that he had to make to the place of original visitation. For I brought him back to Mount Horeb where I had revealed My glory in days gone by, even to My servant Moses, and I was about to bring Elijah back to the basics of revelatory life.

Onward, Upward and Forward

"I am going to bring about, in this season of transition, a new dimension, a fresh dimension of revelation by My Spirit and you will eat the bread of angels in this hour and I will sustain you. For, there is yet a journey through transition to the next place of revelation, for that next place involves the raising up of another generation.

"So hear now what I would say to you as My people. At this juncture, while you may feel weary and exhausted, I am still calling you to move forward. I am still calling you to pursue. But this one thing you have to do – you have to unpack your bags and empty them of all the things that no longer belong with you in the travel, and you need to repack your bags and travel light. For the lighter your bags, the faster your feet, and in repacking your bags, you are going to discover a wind under your heels that lifts you above the realm of earthly forces and downward pull.

"And you will run with lightness of feet, as if on air, with the swiftness of angelic glory, because I am getting ready to renew My promises to another generation, and I require a generation that has known and tasted of My power to be fully present to them in the coming hour. Because without that embodiment of My glory and My grace, they will not have the necessary resources to run the race with those who already have been running well. "

Do not allow the powers of darkness to dissuade you from the goal. There is only one direction for you: onward, upward and forward. And just ahead there is provision, and once you repack your bags, there will be a regaining of momentum and a fresh hunger for the manifestation of My power and glory."

There is a Fresh Wind of the Holy Spirit Coming

I hear God saying something to the Body of Christ, but I hear Him saying it to us as a people – there is a desperate cry in Heaven for a fresh unveiling of the manifest power and presence of the glory of Christ in the earth. The Lord knows this city needs to see it, and if we have been running well, I can tell you that running makes your body weary and there are seasons you just have to press through. But God is taking us somewhere. So, while the whole house is not here tonight, I want us to embrace the word for the whole house and say, "Father, we will repack our bags and we will travel light." Because what is coming is greater than what has been, and as a house we are being redefined – not based on where we have been, but rather based on where we are going.

Be assured, there is a fresh wind of the Holy Spirit coming and it is not far off, because we have entered into a fresh Pentecost and God is going to blow with His wind; and the enemies that would seek to dissuade you are going to be blown away like chaff is blown away from the wheat. Whether you are in the marketplace or the meeting place, be encouraged, the anointing is relevant to your call and there is a fresh wind coming.

It is not time to quit! It is time to just unpack those things that are not serving the purpose of God and repack only the essentials, because where you are going you are not going to need a lot of the things that brought you this far. All you are going to need is to find that thin place on the mountain of God where His glory can pass by and give you the layout and the directives for your next assignment.

When our Eyes will see the Spiritual rather than the Physical alone

Last night at the CHICAGO VISITATION: THE CITY CELEBRATION RALLY @ The Hilton, in Oak Lawn I shared a revelation that has been haunting me. Some of it has been generated as I have been challenged in my Eschatology by Ron Mackenzie. Some of it has been experiential. For these reasons I was not as practiced and glib as I usually am.'s real. A stumbling prophet with depth is better than one who is quick to speak yet shallow. I have heard Bob Jones enough to know it's true. Deep but stumbling.

The Revelation I am seeing:

We live in a 3 dimensional world. Science and the word of God insists there are unseen things all around us. That we live in the touch feel see taste hear world yet that world may not be as real as the one beyond our vision.

It sounds like the matrix...yet it's not like that really. Good movie..bad theology.

If you consider events in the Word of God where people DID have spiritual vision beyond the five senses you see perhaps how we might see if our spiritual eyes were opened.

In 2 Kings 6:16 Elisha the prophet had a fearful servant. The army was surrounding them. They were in the physical in peril. YET, Elisha prayed that the eyes of his servant be opened..when they were the reality came...Those that are with us are more than those who are against us.

Stephan being stoned looked up and saw the Lord...did he see him in heaven or were his eyes suddenly opened to a present and close spiritual reality? Acts 7:56

Baalam's Donkey wouldn't go further because he saw an angel in the way. Baalam couldn't see, but the Donkey had spiritual vision. Numbers 22:25

Isaiah 6:1-4 saw the Lord High and Lifted up...physical or spiritual sight?

Ezekiel 1:16 saw a wheel within a wheel...Physical or Spiritual?

Jesus walks thru the wall...Physical or Spiritual.

Angels of the 7 Churches....Physical Pastors or Apostles of perhaps actual ANGELS assigned to the churches (my view)

John the Revelator's vision of Jesus and heaven...seen with physical or Spiritual eyes?

The mount of Transfiguration... what was that? Physical or Spiritual sight

OR perhaps there is a another way to look at this... There are according to ones who know as many as ten dimensions, mostly at an atomic level. This according to the Fermi Lab research. If the Apostle Paul who was caught up into the third heaven...did he go up somewhere or was he given a brief ability to see into another dimension in a fresh revelation.

If that's true, is it possible that we are living our lives with the supernatural all around us. Not above us...beside us. Unseen. That things we read of in the word are happening right here right now...all around us...just unseen. IF we could see them we would be brave, bold, fearless, upright, sinless, powerful.

Isn't that what we were created for? IF our prayer is for a visitation on the city of Chicago, if we really could see the unseen that is for us more than those against us...we would have no pulling back.

I have experienced this a few times. Sometimes in worship or prayer the presence of God is so strong I KNOW that if I could just reach out I could touch Jesus. I know it. OR His statement that "I will never ever leave or forsake you" is false. I'm guessing you have had this experience as well. He becomes so real...

When He does step into the Physical...He does so as a man, not as the Godhead. Its why He must remain THERE and the Holy Spirit...true God is among us manifested in us. Jesus sits on the Throne as a Man...yet true God.

When the Disciples watched Him ascend into heaven and He entered a cloud...I posit that what they saw was Jesus entering the other dimension..the spiritual realm. So when the claim in Like Manner was true. When we see him's always in like manner.

This is a fresh revelation. One Holy Spirit has been working on with me for a couple weeks. I share it because if your concept of Jesus and Heaven is from afar are mistaken.

In Revelation 4:1-11 there is a picture of's wonderful. YET, the veil between that reality in eternity and our time constrained physical reality is very very thin. Sometimes I have found myself there and so have you. Not physically. Spiritually.

It's like a parchment...and sometimes under the oil of anointing it becomes translucent...we get a peek.

I often refer to death as stepping from time into eternity. That's really what happens. The veil is very thin.

So next time you are in worship and are caught up...see thru the veil...see the glassy sea all around are have longed for the glassy sea...with all the saints and all the Angels are joining in with you in song. Revelation 15:1-8

I believe these revelations of the spiritual realities will increase as the need manifests. Yes the Physical will get worse and worse but the Glory of seeing HIM will get better and better.

Evenso..come Lord Jesus...and yet you are already here.

May we all live in the increasing reality of an Open Heaven seen with spiritual eyes.

A word by Teresa Wiggins regarding Judgement and protection

Punishment: Like a destroying army of locusts, God's punishment for sin is overwhelming, dreadful, and unavoidable. When it comes, there will be no food, no water, no protection, and no escape.

The day for settling accounts with God for how we have lived fast approaching. God is the one with whom we all must reckon - not nature, the economy, or a foreign invader. We can't ignore or offend God forever. We must pay attention to his message now, or we will face his anger later.

Forgiveness: God stood ready to forgive and restore all those who would come to him and turn away from sin. God wanted to shower his people with his love and restore them to a proper relationship with him. Forgiveness comes by turning from sin and turning toward God. It is not too late to receive God's forgiveness. God's greatest desire is for you to come to him.

Promise of the Holy Spirit: The time when God will pour out his Holy Spirit on all people. It will be the beginning of new and fresh worship of God by those who believe in him, but also the beginning of judgment on all who reject him. God is in control. Justice and restoration are in his hands. The Holy Spirit confirms God's love for us just as he did for the first Christians (Acts 2). We must be faithful to God and place our lives under the guidance and power of his Holy Spirit.

What now? by Thurmond Duke

Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will let you hear my words."

So I went down to the potter's house, and there he was working at his wheel.

And the vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter's hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do.

Then the word of the LORD came to me: "O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter has done? declares the LORD. Behold, like the clay in the potter's hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.

If I at any time I declare concerning a nation or a kingdom, that I will pluck up and break down and destroy it, and if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I intended to do to it.

And if at any time I declare concerning a nation or a kingdom that I will build and plant it,

and if it does evil in my sight, not listening to my voice, then I will relent of the good that I had intended to do to it.

Now, therefore, say to the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem: 'Thus says the LORD, Behold, I am shaping disaster against you and devising a plan against you. Return, every one from his evil way, and amend your ways and your deeds.'

"But they say, 'That is in vain! We will follow our own plans, and will every one act according to the stubbornness of his evil heart.'

"Therefore thus says the LORD: Ask among the nations, Who has heard the like of this? The virgin Israel has done a very horrible thing.

Does the snow of Lebanon leave the crags of Sirion? Do the mountain waters run dry, the cold flowing streams?

But my people have forgotten me; they make offerings to false gods; they made them stumble in their ways, in the ancient roads, and to walk into side roads, not the highway, making their land a horror, a thing to be hissed at forever. Everyone who passes by it is horrified and shakes his head.

Jer 18: 1 - 17 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD:

The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD: Like the east wind I will scatter them before the enemy. I will show them my back, not my face, in the day of their calamity."

The other day, the lord spoke to someone, and it raised questions in their mind as to whether it was for the church or the country, and what kind of destruction was the Lord speaking of? Destruction of America, or of the church? Was it to be complete, or partial?

The short answer is that we really have to stretch symbolism in the scripture to see the USA in Biblical prophecy. Now I know there have been and are Bible teachers who think America is in the middle of Bible prophecy. They get this through stretching types and symbols to accommodate their world view that somehow America is smack dab in the middle of end time events. I'm not saying America is not, but you just cannot prove it scripturally. It is actually part of our national arrogance to say we are a key component of end time events.

I've been thinking of the question what happens to the USA? I was thinking about it when the Lord brought the passage from Jeremiah above to my attention this morning. I think the answer He was giving me is perfectly obvious. What happens to the USA is going to be entirely dependent upon what the USA does. Does this country repent and turn to God, or does it continue along its present path? If the USA does not repent, if we do not humble ourselves and pray, AND TURN FROM OUR WICKED WAYS, and call upon Him, then His judgment will fall upon this country, or else He owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology, for we have outdone them in wickedness. The blood of 50 million babies cry out to Him from the ground - we now equal Hitler, Stalin, and Chairman Mao in mass murder. The spirit of murder and killing runs rampant in our streets, and is the main ingredient in the "games" our children play. We allow our children to be brainwashed in the school system, and we deliberately send them off to colleges and universities where we know their faith is going to be ripped to shreds. We turn a blind eye to wickedness, and allow sin to run loose in our own lives and justify and rationalize it like children, with excuses just as flimsy. We tolerate corruption in our government and in our churches. Seriously, if I have to tell you why this nation is on a collision course with God, then I'm wasting my time even writing this.

As for the church and what happens, we have to understand, ...and I mean understand...that judgment begins with the house of God. Jesus will return for a pure and spotless bride. Does this sound like the church in America to you? The church must be made pure. How do you purify gold? You heat it up till it melts. Then the impurities separate out. In the end, the American church will endure the smelter of affliction so that that which is impure will be made evident and will separate out from that which is pure. The world to which we have tried to accommodate ourselves will turn on those who will not reject Jesus and embrace the world system. Why? Ask the communists in Bulgaria, Romania, Russia, China, Laos, the warlords in Sudan, ask any dictator anywhere, and they will tell you it is because a true Christian will not bow their knee, nor will they give ultimate allegiance to anyone but the Lord Jesus Christ, and therefore they represent the ultimate threat to any controlling world system or any local expression of it. True Christianity is diametrically opposed to what the world calls greatness, and it's ideals are the exact opposites of what the world wants.

So there is coming the day when Christians will be scapegoated for the chaos the world creates and for the judgment of God the country is enduring. Biblical Christians will become enemies of the state. At that time, when embracing Jesus Christ and His cross and living for the Kingdom of God will mean being an enemy of the state, being hunted down, cast into prison, tossed into reeducation camps, even being beheaded - well, lets just say at that time those who have the form of godliness, but deny (deny, reject, have no knowledge of) the power thereof, those of whom Jesus spoke (to include those with "ministries," those with a "name," those who call themselves Christians now but whose lives evidence nothing of the life of the Lord Jesus Christ) when He says "Depart from me, for I never knew you" will separate themselves out from the true body of Christ because they will not endure the furnace of purification.

No one knows when this will be. But take a lesson from healing. The time to begin confessing "Jesus is my healer" is now when you are walking in health. The time to learn of God's power to heal is when some imp tries to lay a cold or the flu on you. Or you sprain your toe. If you cannot learn to stand in faith and rebuke the flu, what in hades are you going to do when the doctor walks in and tells you he wants to lop off your breast because of the cancerous lump in there? The time to begin preparing spiritually for what will happen is now. Husbands and wives need to talk and pray - "If the day comes when we cannot buy or sell because we will not take this mark, what will we do? Are we prepared to be homeless? Are we prepared to be on the streets with no food? Are we prepared to make our children suffer these consequences?" These are things we will face. The time to prepare our hearts is now. The time to prepare our children is now. The time to decide who we are and what we will do is now.

A word for those who believe they will never have to endure such persecution in times of trouble because they will be raptured before any such time...I really hope you are right. But, and if it's a big but, if you want an eye-opening experience, go to and get a copy of "The Incredible Cover-Up" by Dave MacPherson. Please don't clutter up this note with what you think you know. I taught and preached the Pre-Trib rapture for years. I know the arguments at least as well as you do, probably much better. I'll just tell you this - it is not, as it is represented to be, the historic position of the church. You can find no mention of it prior to Darby and the Plymouth Brethren in the mid 1800's. However, if you want to believe it, feel free to do so. This is America, and you can believe God is a cosmic egg roll if you want to. If you choose to believe in a pre-trib rapture I do not doubt your love for God nor your commitment to Jesus. I just don't think it would hurt you or damage your faith for you to ask yourself those questions - (what would I do if I had to choose to receive some mark or not have the ability to buy food for my children? what would I do if I had to choose to give my allegiance to a political system or face deportation to a FEMA camp?.........)

As for me, what I think isn't important. Who am I, that anyone should bother themselves with what I believe?

I believe it is much less important whether Jesus's return is pre-trib or mid-trib than being ready to hear his call when He does return for His saints.

I believe the timing of His call is much less important than being prepared to stand before Him when he does call.

Php 3: 12-15 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.

Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,

I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you.

If even the Apostle Paul would say that he did not count even himself as having apprehended, but that he continued to press in to the upward call of Jesus, should I do any less? If I have reason to believe that I live in the beginning of times so spiritually treacherous that Jesus warned that without His abiding presence and covering even the very elect would be in danger of falling away, does not even common sense dictate that I prepare myself spiritually?

Be far less concerned with times and seasons and much more concerned with having a ready heart and an abiding relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Pray for our country, but understand God does not need us to accomplish His will on earth. We are not necessary for God’s plan for this planet. Israel can survive without us. We cannot survive without God. Jesus tried to tell us ----“Don’t be all that concerned for tomorrow. Tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for this day is the evil you have to contend with…” Deal with today. Pray as if there will be no tomorrow. Pray as if what you pray for must be done today. Then get a good night’s sleep, because it all starts out again tomorrow.

Gaining Direction Through a Lack of Provision

TGIF Today God Is First Volume 2, by Os Hillman

"You will drink from the brook, and I have ordered the ravens to feed you there" (1 Kings 17:4).

The prophet Elijah pronounced a drought upon the land because of the sin of Ahab and the nation of Israel. There was only one problem. Elijah had to live in the same land as Ahab.

"Now Elijah the Tishbite, from Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, 'As the LORD, the God of Israel, lives, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain in the next few years except at my word.' Then the word of the LORD came to Elijah: 'Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan. You will drink from the brook, and I have ordered the ravens to feed you there'" (1 Kings 17:1-4).

God provided for Elijah in a supernatural way. The ravens brought bread in the morning and meat in the evening. His water came from the brook.

God often uses money to confirm direction for our lives. Many times God uses a lack of provision to move us into new directions. It is a catalyst to encourage new ideas and strategies. Many times a loss of job becomes the greatest blessing to our lives because it provides the catalyst to do things we simply would never do without taking the step to get out of our comfort zone.

Friend, if you are fully following the Lord in your life and seeking direction from Him and you have no un-confessed sin in your life, there is no way He will allow you to miss His provision for you. He has a thousand ways to get the provision you need at the time you need it. Provision follows obedience.

Leaving the Land - Departures

I am constantly in the mode of leaving. Going on to what is NEXT. Staying becomes uncomfortable. Becomes difficult. Becomes stifling.

The Lord has said to me:
It's time to separate yourself from them. It's time to become what I have for you next.

I do not understand this..but I know it's the truth.

There will be some separations in the months to come. I hope feelings won't be hurt. BUT some will. If someone wants to come out from among you...don't take it personally. It's not your job to accumulate people. It's your job to prepare and send.

I'm sent - into the unknown country

Chad Taylor: ND - Your Jordan Has Flooded and Your Harvest is Ready!

I began to write this message out below when Minot, North Dakota was capturing the headlines around the nation as the flood waters continued to rise. I have personally ministered in Minot a number of times, have walked the streets, and have seen firsthand the prolific harvest and its readiness to hear the Gospel. I pray this word urges Minot forward as it continues to realign to the harvest that is ready and white. There is no other alternative now – harvest!

Prophetic Word Over Minot, North Dakota

"Now the Jordan is at flood stage all during harvest..." Joshua 3:15

God says, "Even as Joshua and the priests approached the flooded waters of the Jordan during its harvest so is Minot, ND standing at the threshold of the greatest breakthrough in its history. Even as the eyes of the world watched, now will they see My glory rise in the midst of every common man and woman. The trumpets of victory are about to sound sending a shock wave of victory into the most stubborn resistance and finally felling the walls of division, religion and sin.

"Mark it down – your harvest is imminent and the seeds of revival planted over 100 years ago in your soil are even now breaking the fallow ground. Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy! (Psalm 126:5)

"The Ark of My presence is about to pass through, even as it did in Joshua's day and your orders are the same as it was then: And they commanded the people, saying, When ye see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests the Levites bearing it, then ye shall remove from your place, and go after it... (Joshua 3:3)

"Go after it," says the Lord! "Do not stand on the sidelines any longer; it's time to get into the field! As Ruth in the Bible your strategy is clear: And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, 'Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace.' And she said unto her, 'Go, my daughter.' And she went, and came, and gleaned in the field after the reapers... (Ruth 2:2-3)

"Now is the time to move forward – to take back your highways and byways and every dark place for the Kingdom of your God. See? I have anointed your feet during the time of this flood. It's a historic precipice and like the priests before – you will stand in the flood waters and make a way for the people to walk into the future. You are My Ruth and I have designated this time as a bountiful harvest for you and I will give you favor even with your enemies. So the people left their camp to cross the Jordan, and the priests who were carrying the Ark of the Covenant went ahead of them. (Joshua 3:14)

"The debris of past resistance that clogged and snagged up the river of My intentions is also being washed away; certainly what your enemy meant for evil I have always intended for good, and now it will work out in your favor," says the Lord. The Lord says, "Take notice of the babies born during this crisis – they are a sign to you as well. They are the first fruits of the harvesters that are coming out of this season – the youth and those that are crossing over. Take note of those born during this time and this flood – they are from the Lord! Your harvest is upon you."

"You have enlarged the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest, as men rejoice when dividing the plunder." Isaiah 9:3

"PREPARATION FOR THE DAYS AHEAD" by Stephen Hanson 7-16-11

15 “So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’[a] spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. 18 Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. 19 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! 20 Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.

(During our time camping the last couple of days at Lake Isabel, Colorado, the Lord began to speak to me about some things that lay ahead for us as believers.)

"People will run to the hills in those days. For in those days the tribulations will have increased. Woe to those who have put their trust in riches. For your riches will not sustain you in that day.

Behold...many will be forced out of the cities; for the evil which will have taken over, will have forced many of my children out. But to those who stand strong to the end, I say, to fortify your walls.

For these days are hastening forward. For those days that are coming will be days of scarcity ---many will be without a source of income, but in spite of this, I will meet the needs of my people.

For out of the dust, and out of the wilderness of those days, a people likened to those of old, will shine with their eyes like unto the sun. For my wisdom even surpassing that of Solomon, will be poured out upon them. For they will reflect my glory. They will come together as one. For your churches will have fallen, and your homes will be those of the wilderness, and you will share all things in common.

The minstrel will sing a new song. The desert flowers will bloom. For even though there will be devastation all around you, my people will find sanctuary under my wings.

For these are those who will come out of the Great Tribulation. Many will have fallen away, for the great deceiver will have caused many to have drifted away.

Do not speculate about how all these things will come to pass. For you don't know the hour of my coming, but I will tell you that there are just a few years left. When you see them gathering against my nation Israel, then you will know that the time is here.

For as the lighting strikes and gathers across the skies, so these days will approach in the same manner.

You cannot save enough to guard against these days. But if you are as wise as the ant prepares for winter, then you would have learned a lesson."

Pathology of Wasted Years


25And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
26And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed (Joel 2:25-26).

The Bible is very explicit concerning the fact that one’s life or years may or may not be well spent. Years are actually being wasted one way or the other. For this reason Moses made a passionate plea to God in Psalm 90:12, “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom”

Counting years or age on earth without actually numbering (taking account of) our days is tantamount to foolishness. Wisdom is found in us when we number our days. What then does it mean to number our days? How can we do this? To what extent can we do this? We are trusting the Holy Spirit to help us solve the problem. But first of all, we need to know how years of one’s life are being wasted. So many of us who claim to be children of God are already victims of this worrisome scourge of wasted years. Years roll upon years, days are multiplied and time waits for no man. May we hear the clear voice of the Holy Ghost as we read. Amen.

25And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten…….

Here is an awesome admission from God, the omnipotent Almighty. It is a promise from the heart of a loving Father who cares for all His children. You see, from this statement we can see God unfolding to us some startling reality:

Years have been probably eaten up or devoured by certain forces of this present life but God promises to RESTORE TO YOU those lost years. Hallelujah! We have a sure hope in GOD that all may not be totally lost. Besides, with God all things are possible.

We only need to take our time to think and discover what the lost years are. Could these be the lost years in your life?

*YEARS WITHOUT GOD- No matter how long it is, all years spent without a sure relationship with the Lord Jesus are wasted years. This is simply because, if death were to have come, eternal doom of the soul would have been inevitable. Simply put, there is no true joy or fulfillment in the life of an unbeliever or a backslider. God’s presence in one’s life makes a whole world of difference. This difference is fundamental and cannot be equaled with any other attainment in life.
12That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world ( Ephesians 2:12).

*YEARS OF LAWLESSNESS- These are years of perverted life. Days of unending atrocities and incompatibility with God’s rule and direction in life. It is always agonizing to remember how much we lost in the wilderness of lawlessness. Most often, lack of godly leadership contributes immensely to this. Even in the modern Church today, individuals who have never been disciples of Christ, even untutored souls are always vulnerable to shameful scandals in society. The situation is more worsened when such individuals find themselves in positions of leadership. Unfortunately most church-goers are no more reading their Bibles; they are just following their corrupt leaders blindly. The resultant tragedy is always monumental. One great lack in the Church today is dependable and lasting leaders. May God have mercy on our generation by giving us true and exemplary leaders.

25In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes (Judges 21:25).

*YEARS WITHOUT A DEFINITE DIRECTION- God is not pleased with a life without divine guidance or direction. It is like gambling in the dark. The danger of such a lifestyle is more than meets the eye. God’s will is clearly revealed to us:
8I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye (Psalm 32:8)

*YEARS OF BACKSLIDING, DISTRACTION AND DETRACTION FROM THE RIGHT PATH- There have been seasons of broken focus; the temptation to abandon what God ordains for our life is always high. At times we feel as if let down by God; it seems better to do something else because no immediate reward is in sight. At some other times, trials of faith seem so hard. We have been instructed by God to endure hardship as soldiers of Christ-this presupposes that hardship is very possible (2 Timothy 2:3). No matter what we seem to have gained in the seasons of disobedience to God all vanity, yea a loss (Philippians 3:7,8). Do not continue to stay in the dark, Christ has brought you light.

*YEARS OF CARRYING THE REPROACH OF EGYPT- For a long time, after having left Egypt, so many of the sons of Israel were still carrying the reproach of Egyptian slavery: they were no more physically in Egypt but their spiritual status was very much imperfect, defective, and incompatible with their professed identity with God. Alas! This fatal error was not rectified for years.
2At that time the LORD said unto Joshua, Make thee sharp knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second time.
3And Joshua made him sharp knives, and circumcised the children of Israel at the hill of the foreskins.
4And this is the cause why Joshua did circumcise: All the people that came out of Egypt, that were males, even all the men of war, died in the wilderness by the way, after they came out of Egypt.
5Now all the people that came out were circumcised: but all the people that were born in the wilderness by the way as they came forth out of Egypt, them they had not circumcised.
6For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people that were men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD: unto whom the LORD sware that he would not shew them the land, which the LORD sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey.
7And their children, whom he raised up in their stead, them Joshua circumcised: for they were uncircumcised, because they had not circumcised them by the way.
8And it came to pass, when they had done circumcising all the people, that they abode in their places in the camp, till they were whole.
9And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day (Joshua 5:2-9 ).

Today many of God’s children are suffering as slaves in bondage. The forces of satanic wickedness are still oppressing them. Why should you be living as if you have no Defender? You have an everlasting Defender who cannot let you down! Why not take refuge in Him now? He will roll away every reproach of Egypt in your entire life. But the foreskin (excesses) of your heart must be circumcised before Him. Are you willing to let Him?

*DEVOURED YEARS- Years of gloom and doom. Days of hopeless labour in the wrong way, at the wrong time, for the wrong purpose. When we are not walking in the light, we are simply achieving nothing while the time lasts!

For instance, the years of Judah spent in idolatry and other vices, coupled with the attendant judgment from God were years wasted by the locust, the canker-worm, the caterpillar and the palmer-worm - surprisingly, the Lord refers to these as His great army He actually sent to teach His people some sense!
25And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the canker-worm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you (Joel 2:25).

The above assertion shows that God does actually bring troubles upon His people as a way of calling for their attention; so that they will not be wasted in the land. This itself is an act of God's love.

Do not count your seemingly lost years as a total waste. There is sure hope for you. If peradventure the Lord is simply calling your attention to Himself, do not miss His intention! When you think He is angry or implacable, He is simply waiting to receive and bless your dear soul. Do not be overwhelmed by the pains of lost years. Do not forget the great and precious promise of God to you and to me:
25And I will restore to you the years….
It’s time for you to bounce back to divine reckoning. Stir up the gifts of God in you and stay relevant in God’s program. We love you so much. Shalom.

Jehovah rides upon a swift cloud! Jesus Told Caiaphas the same thing about himself. Judgment upon America

Jesus said, "I Am. And you will see the Son of Man seated in the place of power at God's right hand and coming on the clouds of heaven." Mark 14:62
At these words Caiaphas tore his robe. He knew what Jesus was saying, that judgment was about to descend upon Jerusalem, that his religious system was about to be dismantled. And it happened. Jesus was using a well known idiom for Judgment. Coming on a cloud to describe a soon coming day of the Lord. Those who use these words as evidence for a visible coming of the Lord in 70 AD miss the truth of the words Jesus spoke and Caiaphas understood.

What follows is not my own...but is a valid word.

The Day of the Lord, as taught in Scriptures is not and has never been a one time deal. There have been many “days of the Lord,” and of course there is a notable day of the Lord coming when He arrives again in glory, visibly, for all the world to see when “every knee shall bow , of those on heaven, and those of earth and those under the earth, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father. The day of the Lord is a time when God comes down and enters into our time and space with a particular judgment for the wicked and salvation for the righteous. We see in Isa 19:1 that ‘behold, Jehovah rides on a swift cloud and comes into Egypt.” Now, how many of us know that when God visits a particular land for the purpose of judgment, that it will not go well for that land. You see, He sits upon the cloud, meaning, that our God is above all resistance. He will do what He has come to do, no one will resist Him. Now the Lord has come to Egypt on a cloud. What does this mean for Egypt? Well, God was going to deal with them directly. There would be no foreign invasion and then captivity, no God was going to prove something. The methods that God will employ are truly frightening.

In a combination of natural disasters and His sovereignty, which allows Him to effect the minds of men, God would bring Egypt down. As we see how and why God was judging Egypt, I want you to keep America in mind. I am going to suggest to you that God has arrived on a swift cloud and has come into America, even as we speak. Now , I know that this staggers the mind. Please pray that the Lord will give you eyes to see what is truly unfolding in our time and why.

First of all, let us consider the reasons that God has arrived. At this period of time the Jewish people have a strong alliance with Egypt. While on the one hand the professed a dependence upon God, in reality they were truly dependent upon Egypt for their continued protection against stronger forces than them. They depended upon Egypt’s strength and military might. Now we know that our God is a jealous God, He will have no other God’s before Him. Do you really believe that? Seriously brothers and sisters, do you truly believe that? If indeed that is so, then we see that God has come down to dismantle, piece by piece, one of the major sources of the Jewish people’s idolatry, Egypt. Keep in mind, and idol is something that we put our trust in above God. Can I suggest that God has come down to dismantle, piece by piece, the major source of the American Christian’s idolatry, the nation of America itself. If the Jewish people slept at ease in their beds because of their alliance with Egypt, does the American Christian really do anything different? Does their peace and security come from God or does it come from their military might? Does their peace and security come from God or does it come from their vast wealth? What group of people recently have been advocates for war and torture? And why has this been so? Fear of attack? Fear of destruction? Fear of death? Fear of terrorism? In the natural, who would have argued with the Jewish alliance with Egypt? Would today’s Christians have dealt with the situation any differently than the Jewish nation did? Would they not look at it pragmatically and say “well yes you can pray to God and trust Him, that’s all well and good, but lest be practical.” Using the exact same logic today, American Christians have an alliance with their institutions to protect them. Remember, God knows our hearts. He knows if we trust our political, financial, and military institutions over and above Him when it comes to maintaining our Christianity. And to further complicate the situation today, many Christians have co-mingled their Christianity with their nationalism, to them they are one and the same. Whether its our “Godly foundations,” our our founding Fathers or our laws or our constitution, these are all seen as guarantors of our continuing heritage. Rather than God being our guarantor, our protector, our defender, we see human institutions given that role, which is why so many fight so feverishly in the political realms to guarantee their “rights,” and their survival. Take these same people and transplant them back into the days of Isa 19 and we would see them argue with intensity that the alliance with Egypt is vital and that it must be maintained.
Of course, this truly is a sign a people who do not trust God at all, but only pay lip service. And so God begins to unravel the source behind the Jewish man’s security, so as to judge the source and to expose the claims of those who call themselves by His name.

In Isa 19:1 we see that the “Idols of Egypt shall tremble at His presence. And the heart of Egypt shall melt in its midst.” Can I suggest that since 9/11 there has been an unleashing of fear in America. The people have had their foundations shaken, and they now suffer from unbridled insecurity. To be hit in the financial capitol and the political capitol was like being struck with arrows directly in the heart. It has left the people staggering and unable to find their footing. In Isa 19:2 we read “And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians and they shall fight each man against his brother and each against his neighbor, city against city, Kingdom against Kingdom. Jesus speaks this exact thing in relation to the end of times in Mat 24:7 “For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.” The word nation is from the Greek “ethnos,” its where we get our word ethnic. IN the context of America under judgment we have already seen different groups turn against each other. The biggest categories seem to be Liberals and Republicans. The country is sharply divided right down the middle, and there is an intense hatred and mistrust from either side. God turned the Egyptians upon themselves and He has done the same in this country. In Egypt had 12 different regions, this would be the kingdom part of the scripture. They also turned on each other. In this country we will see States turning on each other and fighting with one another, at least in the political realm, some threatening to secede over issues such as drugs and abortion and gay marriage and illegal immigration and so on. This will be part and parcel of the national breakdown of leadership as they abdicate responsibility and lose wisdom.

In Isa 19:3 it states “And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst of it and I will destroy its wisdom and they shall seek to idols and to enchanters and to the mediums and to the future-tellers.” Can I suggest that we are far to modern here in the States to call our idols by those names. Yet so many professing Christians look to the media to hear what their future-tellers have to say and they have enriched these future-tellers, or pundits. Listen to what Matthew Henry has to say about these verses……..

III. The Egyptians shall be embroiled in endless dissensions and quarrels among themselves. There shall be no occasion to bring a foreign force upon them to destroy them; they shall destroy one another (Isa_19:2): I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians. As these divisions and animosities are their sin, God is not the author of them, they come from men’s lusts; but God, as a Judge, permits them for their punishment, and by their destroying differences corrects them for their sinful agreements. Instead of helping one another, and acting each in his place for the common good, they shall fight every one against his brother and neighbor, whom he ought to love as himself – city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.

IV. Their politics shall be all blasted, and turned into foolishness. When God will destroy the nation he will destroy the counsel thereof (Isa_19:3), by taking away wisdom from the statesmen (Job_12:20), or setting them one against another (as Hushai and Ahithophel), or by his providence breaking their measures even when they seemed well laid; so that the princes of Zoan are fools: they make fools of one another, every one betrays his own folly, and divine Providence makes fools of them all, Isa_19:11. Pharaoh had his wise counselors. Egypt was famous for such. But their counsel has all become brutish; they have lost all their forecast; one would think they had become idiots.

You see, when God judges a nation in this fashion he robs their leaders of their wisdom. He brings about situations where the best counselors are at a complete loss as to how to move forward and solve their problems and their problems only mount up higher and higher. This is undoubtedly the situation America faces right now and since it is God that sits in judgment, there are no resolutions to their mounting problems and crisis. Just when they seem to get a handle on one problem and seek to breathe a little easier, quickly the next judgment comes. In Egypt we see that the Nile was dried up. This was the source of the wealth of than nation, God strikes at the very heart of their resources. Of course we saw recently an unprecedented financial collapse that threatened to swallow up the whole world. In order to solve their problems America spent a vast a mount of money, money that they did not have. This was a country already deeply in debt to foreign nations, now they have have plunged themselves, with complete abandon, into an ocean of debt in order to try and stabilize their world. This is only delaying the inevitable. At some point their enemies will turn on them and call in their debt. The great pride of this nation has been its wealth, its the very heart of the country, now we see all this slipping away just as the Egyptian saw their own wealth slip away as the Nile slowly dried up. America is drowning in an ocean of debt, started by the Republicans, carried on gleefully by the Democrats but initiated by God Himself as judgment. Moving forward these two groups will point the finger at each other as the problems of debt mount. When they are struck once again by terrorism, then this will be the catalyst that will tear the country apart. Each will blame the other with a ferocity not seen before. Isa 19:14 “Jehovah has mixed a perverse spirit in its midst; and they have caused Egypt to go astray in all its work, like a drunkard staggers in his vomit. ” When God mixes in a perverse spirit, woe to that place.

The time has come for the American church to rely upon God alone for their security. They must know hat their identity is in the Lord and in Him alone. The very country that they take so much pride in will one day soon turn on them. Yet for those who turn to the Lord with their whole hearts they will find great blessings and peace of mind . This does not mean that they will not be persecuted, without a doubt they will be, and by their own country, but they will be covered by a peace that surpasses all understanding. God is, even as we speak, working His judgment upon the land. The mighty shall be humbled, yet God’s people will be like a city set upon a hill. I wish I could say that judgment will turn the nation back to God but I fear it is not so. Judgment will only harden the hearts of those who resist God, their hatred for God’s people only increasing as a perverse spirit begins to blame God’s people for all the woes of society, much like the Nazis began to blame the Jewish people for all the woes of the German people.

God has begun to pass judgment on all those things that the American Christian holds dear and gleans security from. If the very constitution that so many Americans stand upon, if that is their trust, their security, then that too will be judged and removed. And the people cry “Never, blasphemy,” forgetting that God allowed the nation of Israel and Judah to be invaded and destroyed and the temple, so central to the Jewish identity, completely destroyed, not one stone left standing upon another. Yes, it staggers the American mind, yet nevertheless, God has come on a swift cloud and God has come to judge. Joe 2:1 Blow a ram’s horn in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain; let all the inhabitants of the land tremble. For the day of Jehovah comes, for it is near at hand;

So brothers and sisters, do likewise. Blow the trumpet. In Joel’s day they lost everything to a devastating plague of locusts. Not an ordinary plague, a devastating supernatural plague designed to call the people to repentance. In the last 10 years we have seen 9/11, a tsunami that was unknown in our times or our history books, Katrina and then a financial meltdown that took the world to the brink. Now, in Joel’s day they had just over 30 years before they were invaded and destroyed. They did not heed this warning from the prophet, they managed to get back on their feet again, just in time to be destroyed. Shall we ignore these devastating, world shattering warnings? Will we write them of as merely natural disasters? Or, will we recognize that God rides on a swift cloud and has come to judge the Land?

(Genesis 21:15-19)"15And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs.

16And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bow shot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept.

17And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is.

18Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation.

19And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink."

If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses?

Jeremiah 12:5 ”If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, In which you trusted, they wearied you, Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?
Misty Edwards Sang of this in Baptize My Heart....

I can hear the song of the Creator as He sings over His creation
I played the flute for You…did You dance?
I sang the wedding song over You … were You romanced?
I played the funeral song and told You my judgments were coming did you lament?
For even children know when to dance!
Even children know the sound of the wedding
Even children know when to repent
At the sound of the funeral they lament!
Baptize my heart with Your fire, Your desire
I don’t want to be offended, I don’t want to be offended
I don’t want to be offended when it’s all coming down
I pledge my allegiance to Jesus
I pledge my allegiance to the Lamb

How will the Church deal with the time of Trouble when it comes? Offense? Repentance?

When it's all coming whom or where will she turn?

This sifting, this separation is essential to provide the Bridegroom a Pure Bride.

The whore church will not be cast out.

She will leave of her own accord. Not everyone who says Lord Lord....

Misty Sings the song quoted above in this video

When there are no more words.... Silence .... till it's too late

I have done what I know to do prophetically. I have warned. Offered. Described. Posted. Made clear the terror of the troubling days to come.

I don't know what else to do. When it all comes down it will be too late to prepare.

Most will drown.

People are relying on faith in faith, on hope in something other than Father. People don't understand the gravity of the hour. It's just like the days of Noah....

I really thought the body of Christ would prepare herself as a bride. She won't...till it's too's too late.

"Word of the Lord July 2011" By: Prophet Phyllis Ford & "The Challange Ahead" By: Apostle Miles Ford

June 28, 2011

This is a time when some of your greatest accomplishments can be established as you yield your life before me. It is truly a time to shake oneself from negative experiences and avail yourselves to what I have placed in you, planned in you, and are preparing in you; that you may go forth to establish the work ahead with my grace and fortitude. And yes, there will be challenges and obstacles ahead. The most important thing must be determined, and that is ‘what do you believe?’ How will you obey the calling that I have placed upon you before the foundation of the earth? Begin to move along the lines of that which I have called you, established you, and perfected you; so that the answers to today’s dilemmas will be ultimately found in you.

This is a turning point, a time of great testing, and a time to stand for whom you have been called and what you are to represent on the earth. This time is now; and it must be now because the time is short, and the work ahead is monumental, but it can be accomplished with what I have placed in you, says the Lord.

The work ahead is a corporate one, and it operates because of what needs to be accomplished more than the individuals who are doing it. It becomes completed because of the cause by which the efforts are initiated. So many lives are hanging in the balance. I need sober-minded, strong leaders who are not compromised by their flesh and their loyalties to the world, but they are walking worthy of their calling, they know why they have been called and what their responsibility is. You are about to see some serious things take place because of decisions made in leadership, in the church, in the back room, in the government, in their prayer closets, and even things spoken in their bed chambers.

You will see a series of events that will now take place as a result of these decisions. So this is the time to make a stand. Who is on the Lord’s side, and who will do my bidding? Who will declare my word and my truth, even in the midst of greedy, lusty, and selfish men? Who will stand for my name? These things aren’t about a person’s reputation. These things are about truth. Who will you serve? Who will you be willing to lay down your lives for, will be the question. I am waiting and I already know what lies ahead. So choose now! Stand now! Make sure you choose carefully.

Are you willing to lay down your life for what you believe? If you do, I will defend you. I will hold you with my right hand, for I am your deliverer, says the Lord. Do not fear the things that are about to come upon this world, because if you have made the right choices you have nothing to fear. If you will make the right steps, I will lead you and direct your life. But you must hearken diligently and not make decisions based upon your flesh, but hear me and obey me as you follow me --- you will walk in realms of protection and move along to accomplish extraordinary tasks. So things that may seem impossible will be accomplished for My glory. So allow me to move you forth and instruct you as these months move ahead.

In this month (and beyond) you will see events occur that will astonish you. The earth is in travail which is why so many things are occurring right now, but there are also plans within groups, sleeper cells, and evil plans that are in the making.

The government should be in watch mode, but they will be going with business as usual and will not see the signs coming--- for great upheaval.

There will be more violent evil winds and earthquakes as well.

Intercessors, watchmen, I am calling you this hour to watch---–to pray. Leaders in the church-----it is your kingdom responsibility to move and act; make a stand. You must be ready and prepared for what is coming, but the only way that you will be prepared is to be before My presence.

Take necessary steps, make and implement plans for water and food. Crisis care and crisis management will be needed as you work together, as you pray together, as you move forward together, and much will be accomplished as you follow My leading and My directions.

Ecclesiastes 9:11 New Living Translation “I saw something else under the sun. The race isn't [won] by fast runners, or the battle by heroes. Wise people don't necessarily have food. Intelligent people don't necessarily have riches, and skilled people don't necessarily receive special treatment. But time and unpredictable events overtake all of them.”

Ecclesiastes 9:11 God’s Word Translation “I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn't always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn't always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don't always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time.”

Prophetic Insight (Alert)

I had the following three vivid visions:

1. I saw an explosion near a very mountainous region –I saw a thick cloud, and after the cloud began to clear, part of the mountain was crumbling, literally, by the power of the force of what had just happened.

2. I saw several men dressed in white protective gear with containers pouring something in the water. I don’t know if it was a result of something already bad in the water or what.

3. It was very rainy outside, and I saw several officials and men dressed with suits and trench coats with umbrellas getting out of cars, and someone began to shoot through the crowd, and everyone was ducking to the ground—I did not see who was firing or if anyone or if several were hurt. (I felt real trouble in my spirit).

Please pray around these visions because the implications are serious. Since our last update Seattle Washington picked up a suspected terrorist (June 24th). Alaska had two earthquakes, magnitude approx. 7.4, and Philippines suffered tropical storm, Meari, and a typhoon-–these were all on our watch list. (So it is important that we pray.) A special thanks to those who send supportive info to pray about---we ask that Intercessors from Europe, Asia, South American, Africa etc. --- EVERY KINDRED, NATION, and TONGUE --- pray!

Calling all intercessors! We have obtained the email for watchman/intercessors to send their prayer alerts and we will send out prayer alerts and receive alerts at:

Final Note: Read over the word of the Lord for June because much will become clearer and clearer within the next 3 months. These words will overlap even going back to April 2011. The following is a very powerful word given to my husband, Apostle Miles Ford, which adds dimension to the words you have just read.

The Challenge Ahead – by: Apostle Miles Ford

It is my view that the best of what the church will give to the world is about to be revealed over the next 2 and one half years. As citizens of the kingdom of God, we know that Jesus Christ is the best that the church can give to the world. As we live our lives in obedience, discipline, and power that is totally submitted and consecrated before Him, this is what makes us successful as we present Christ and manifest the power of His kingdom before all men. There are so many opportunities that are about to be presented for God’s people to come forward and shine. With answers to very complex events and sudden changes that will, to those not knowing and trusting in Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit, be insurmountable. At each level and through each crisis, God has in advance given the wisdom, grace, anointing, finances and leadership as well as many other resources so that His will plan and purpose is fully accomplished and carried out.

The challenge aspect of what I feel will go down as the church’s finest hour is, unfortunately, what will be known as a great time of turmoil and trouble. I believe that the events of July will mark what is a total change in mindset for us as a nation. It will be a great all-hands-on-deck signal for the church, and during that time, we will be faced with a lot of angry, misguided, and untrusting people on all sides.

There is such a small window of time for preparation for those in the body of Christ to prepare and position ourselves for these coming challenges. There are those to whom God is releasing wealth in this hour from various avenues. These will be the most challenged of all because they will hold what I call a ‘Joseph key’ for many to whom God has ordained that they sustain and minister to during this season. In my estimation the church should be already shifted into a crisis-aftermath mode. We should have a sound answer to the question of: If the U. S. dollar collapses and loses it’s worth and value, how will I conduct the business of the kingdom and what then will be our method of currency to accomplish God’s plan? Also, if there is a food or water crisis or shortage, are we still able to function for a reasonable period of time?

This is the time that the church must listen to and study very carefully the words, and prophetic warnings, of its prophets and apostles, whether it concerns earthquakes or social unrest. For those who don’t, they will be left scrambling for answers in a time of challenges that they will then be staring in the face. We must not expect that the greatest harvest of souls that has ever been reaped coming into God’s kingdom would come without event. This time of challenge will also be a time of change and most importantly a time for God’s champions to arise and enter the fields that are ripe unto harvest to work and win souls for the Glory of God. “Except a corn of wheat fall unto the ground and die it abides alone but if it dies it brings forth much fruit.” (John 12:24) Sometimes we need to give up life (as we know it) and be willing to sacrifice, so that much fruit can be realized for God’s greater purpose.

The Elijah Prophets vs. the immature christian leaders by JoeL Ramshaw

2 Kings 2:23-24 "Then Elisha went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up the road, some youths came from the city and mocked him, and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!”

24 So he turned around and looked at them, and pronounced a curse on them in the name of the LORD. And two female bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths."

interpretation from the Holy Spirit

BETHEL is a Hebrew name meaning "House of God" representing the church.

"Elisha went up" represents the new generation of prophets (not the paid "institutional" ones) "going to Bethel (House of God, the church)"

the "youths" signifies the immaturity of the christian leaders in the church, when they should be teaching the "strong meat" revelations from the Holy Spirit, they are still struggling to learn their baby-milk teachings with no power. they should be GROWN MEN spiritually, but instead they are YOUTHS

they mocked him and said "Go up your baldhead! Go up you baldhead!" they say this because Elisha lacks a COVERING. the prophecy hidden for this age represents how many modern christian leaders teach that you must come under a man's apostolic or pastoral "spiritual covering" to be blessed, spiritually protected, or in God's will. 1 Corintians 11 teaches us that a man should not have a "covering" on his head, since he is the image and glory of God.

1 Corinthians 11:7, "For a man indeed OUGHT NOT TO COVER HIS HEAD, since he is the image and glory of God" 1 Corinthians 11:3, "But I want you to know that THE HEAD OF EVERY MAN IS CHRIST, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God"the new generation of spiritual warriors and prophets will be free from trusting any man as their "spiritual covering," since they will be directly covered by Christ Himself. Everyone who has a real relationship with God, and lives in God's will automatically lives under Christ's covering over them. When someone trusts in a certain man or religious leader as their spiritual "covering" they are not able to walk into their destiny. the "two female bears" represents the judgment of God on those with illegitimate authority (granted by man and not by God) who oppose His chosen vessels *******************God bless everyone!
