America My Olive Branch
Prophecy July 6, 2014
I was in bed on a ship Sunday morning just hours away from docking in Galveston after spending seven days on a cruise. It was still dark outside but I knew morning was fast approaching and I would be back on shore in America once again. Suddenly, I saw a red wall of light appear in my spirit with a narrow rectangle golden shaft of transparent light slowly descending the middle of the red wall. I knew I was about to hear a message from the Lord. Then He spoke.
“America, My olive branch, has become stale, stagnant, and rotten. I will soon replace her.”
Then the transparent golden light went back up and the red wall disappeared.
In the prophecy, the Lord placed a greater emphasis on the word rotten. He pronounced it like “rot – tennnn”.
The word “rotten” by definition means:
- Being in a state of purification or decay; decomposed
- Having a foul odor resulting from or suggestive of decay; putrid
- Made weal or unsound by rot
- Morally corrupt or despicable
- Very bad, wretched
What is the Lord saying here?
Cruise ships represent the sovereign plan of God on a grand scale and being on the last few hours of the cruise when I heard this prophecy makes me think that God’s patience is up with America. There’s not much time to come into the ark of His safety.
Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. Gen. 6:12
Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD’S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad. Jer. 51:7
I believe we are living in the last hours of the age and the Bible has many scriptures, which describe the current state of our society, which is openly wicked, godless, and defiant to the ways of the one true God. Today good is called wicked and wicked is called good. Churches show a form of Godliness but are without power or effect. Some denominations openly endorse homosexuality as well as divestment proposal of Israel. Our government, judicial and educational institutions have pushed God out from the lowest to the highest branches of office with few exceptions. America not only pollutes itself with every kind of wickedness and demons, but also is the biggest exporter of evil throughout the earth today. These things make for a stale, stagnant, and rotten smell, which has risen up before the Lord.
And the LORD said, “The outcry of Sodom and Gomorrah is indeed great, and their sin is exceedingly grave. “I will go down now, and see if they have done entirely according to its outcry, which has come to Me; and if not, I will know.” Genesis 18:20-21
Biblical history has many examples of one nation invading another, capturing and plundering its wealth then destroying it. Babylon invaded Israel, captured Jerusalem, and took the Israelites into captivity in Babylon (586 BCE). Some years later Babylon fell to Cyrus the great king of Persia (539 BCE) when they were invaded. Jesus spoke of the coming fall of Herod’s temple while in His earthly ministry. Some years later, Titus commanded the Roman legion, which captured and destroyed Jerusalem in 70 CE. The Lord has used one nation to bring a judgment upon another for violating His laws.
I believe the phrase in this prophecy, “soon I will replace her” refers to an imminent judgment upon America where the economy fails, and lawlessness becomes the new normal. Natural disasters will devastate the land and erode our shorelines. Geo-political chaos, internal strife has weakened and distracted our nation. Our enemies have a war plan against America and will ambush attack us and invade our borders, resulting in massive casualties and the fall of this once great nation.
Make bright the arrows; gather the shields: the LORD hath raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes: for his device is against Babylon (America), to destroy it; because it is the vengeance of the LORD, the vengeance of his temple. Jer. 51:11
The wicked are removed and the proud humbled. The righteous will call out to God to save American and out of the ashes the righteous arise with humbled hearts and a repentive nation replaces the wicked one we currently are.
A new, fresh olive branch will begin to sprout and grow like the nation our founding fathers birthed. It will take much prayer and dedication to His sovereign will but America will be replaced a fresh.
“Do not say in your heart when the LORD your God has driven them out before you, ‘Because of my righteousness the LORD has brought me in to possess this land,’ but it is because of the wickedness of these nations that the LORD is dispossessing them before you. Duet 9:4
“Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me.” Jonah 1:12
May God strengthen our hearts and purge, purify and refine us that we may be His olive branch once again.
