America Ignored God’s Judgment!

Is America Ignoring Judgment?

Hurricane“…For when the earth experiences Thy judgments the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness. Though the wicked is shown favor, He does not learn righteousness: He deals unjustly in the land of uprightness, and does not perceive the majesty of the Lord. Is. 26: 9-10

In my secret place late on the night on December 23, 2004, I fell under a very strong unction of Holy Spirit to pray for the Christians in Indonesia who were being persecuted and even murdered by Muslim extremists. In a sense there was an ethnic cleansing in progress and Christians were being beheaded by the sword in an all out attempt to eliminate the Christian church in this area.

There is no greater call of God than to follow the unction of Holy Spirit to intercede on the behalf of another.

As I sat in a chair staring out the picture window into the dark of night, I cried out for an open door for the gospel to penetrate this area and for God to do whatever it takes to get the gospel into these areas and to deliver the saints from being murdered. I prayed until I felt a release from Holy Spirit and then retired for the night. “The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.” James 5:16

On Sunday Morning, December 26, 2004, just before leaving for church, I turned on the TV and saw a news report of a 8.9 -9.0 earthquake in the Indonesian region and that a strong tsunami had been generated. I told my wife this will be a big event and cause allot of damage and loss of life. How little did I know how much death and damage this event would cause! The news for days and even weeks from this region revealed the damage and death toll from the strong tsunami. Truly, a tragedy and a judgment of God was released upon the earth.

With a magnitude between 9.1-9.3 and a duration of 8.3 – 10 minutes, the Indonesian earthquake was the second strongest ever recorded. It caused the entire planet to vibrate as much as 1 cm (0.4 inches) triggering other earthquakes as far away as Alaska. The marker at the North Pole was relocated about one meter to accommodate for the shift in the earth’s poles. The atomic clock was adjusted afterwards because the energy released by the powerful earthquake caused the earth to totter, thus slowing the earth’s rotation about 1 second. Know that only God can shake the earth!

He established the earth upon its foundations, So that it will not totter forever and ever. Ps. 104:5

The 20 meter uplift in the seabed floor generated the strongest tsunami ever recorded with waves of 30 meters (100 ft) high in some communities. The earthquake is estimated to have released the energy above the seabed floor at 26.3 megatons of TNT. This energy is equivalent to over 1502 times that of the Hiroshima type atomic bombs, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, impacting millions of people in eleven countries. The energy of the tsunami sent a wave around the world. The U.S. Geological Survey death toll now stands at a staggering 229,866 people killed.

Banda Ache Tsunami Before_After1

The network news began to broadcast satellite images of the damage caused by the force of the tsunami. One image in particular caught my eye when I saw a photo taken from a satellite of Banda Ache. In the photo, I saw the outline of the geographical shape of the United States; I knew God had put it there as a warning for America. I knew in my spirit that America was going to experience a similar disaster sometime in the future. I didn’t know when or how, but I knew a judgment from God was coming to America.

 

Prophetic Comprehension 101

Prophets have a comprehension of prophetic matters and see prophetic things in the world around them. It may be something on the news, TV show, commercials, photos, reading news releases, they see God in everything. A recent example of this was in the June 8, 2009 news headlines that read, “Sotomayor breaks ankle at New York City airport en route to Washington for Senate meetings.” When I read that, I saw prophetically that her foundational beliefs are not what our forefathers established. Even before her “take-off” her right ankle breaks which represents her foundation and direction. She continued on as she hobbled through her confirmation interviews in Washington. This event leads me to believe this appointee is not going to vote along the lines of our Constitution. She will definitely go left on her rulings.

Surely the Lord God does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7

Judgment Warning

While I was in prayer on Friday, December 30, 2004, the same week the Indonesian tsunami occurred, as I was silent before the Lord, I heard the Lord say to me, “America should take this as a warning!” He implied the Indonesian tsunami. I felt my heart sink and felt fear and reverence of the Lord. I also knew that America and the rest of the world wouldn’t consider the Indonesian tsunami as a judgment of God even though the level of destruction and death was of biblical proportions, it would go ignored.

Judgment Came in 2005

In the hurricane season of 2005 America suffered three powerful hurricanes of which Katrina was the first. On Sunday morning, August 28, 2005, when I saw Katrina increase in strength from a category 2 to a category 5 hurricane almost overnight, I knew this was a storm of judgment to come upon America. Katrina was briefly the fourth most intense Atlantic hurricane on record on August 28 and soon to be surpassed by hurricanes Rita and Wilma in the following weeks, which made this the most intense hurricane season going back to 1850. Was this going to be America’s tsunami?

Katrina’s storm surge heights at landfall peaking at around 25 feet as they came ashore, which were the highest ever recorded in U.S. history, surpassing the previous height set by Hurricane Camille in 1969. Katrina was also the largest hurricane of its strength to approach the United States in recorded history; its massive size caused devastation over 100 plus miles from the center. The impact of the storm surge caused major or catastrophic damage along the coastlines of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, including the cities of Mobile, Alabama, Biloxi and Gulfport, Mississippi.

I heard several TV news reporters declaring Katrina as ‘America’s tsunami’ without even knowing how prophetic their words were at the time. Katrina brought America the destruction of cites and the displacement of millions of people. A total of 1723 people perished in Katrina along with being the costliest storm damage ever recorded estimated at 75 billion in Louisiana and 105 billion in Mississippi. Katrina changed the way people think about living on the coast which was made all the more evident when Rita at a category 5 caused a massive fear driven evacuation of more than a million people from the Texas gulf coast alone.

America suffered the judgment by God’s hand and ignored it all together. When Katrina was approaching, still hours away, I heard many well-meaning Christians praying for it to be still and go away because they didn’t understand that this was the judging hand of God in action. In a discussion with my pastor recently on the subject of Katrina, he said he was also praying for Katrina not to harm America when he heard God say to him, “It will happen.”

Church Leaders Debate

Days of NoahOn one Christian TV program, I watched a select panel debate the question, “Whether Katrina was a judgment from God or not?” One member of the panel, who is a known prophet of God, said Katrina was a judgment of God but later backed away from his statement when the others on the panel refuted him.

If the people who present themselves as world and national church leader aren’t watching, can’t see or won’t proclaim what God is doing in these last days, are they any different from the religious people during Jesus’ earthly ministry? Jesus said they are as the blind guides leading the blind. Jesus spoke of the religious leadership of his day like this:

“You hypocrites, rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you: ‘THIS PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME. BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.’ “After Jesus called the crowd to Him, He said to them, “Hear and understand.”{It is} not what enters into the mouth {that} defiles the man, but what proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man.” Then the disciples came and said to Him, “Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this statement?” But He answered and said, “Every plant which My heavenly Father did not plant shall be uprooted.” “Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” Mat. 15:7-14

God has never been politically correct nor will He be so. He is the God that changes not. Jesus Christ {is} the same yesterday and today and forever. Heb. 13:8 I believe most world and national ministries prefer not to discuss the subject of God’s judgment fearing that a firestorm of criticism might be launched against them. It’s a sign of our times; it’s just not politically correct to pronounce that God judges nations according to their deeds no matter how scriptural it is.

Jesus said, “For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.” Mat. 24: 37-39

What did they not understand until it was too late? Judgment! God had pronounced His judgment upon them and was going to flood the entire earth unless they repented and turned from their wickedness. They ignored the warnings! They ignored the preacher Noah speaking the words of warning from God. They chose to continue to do what they wanted to do rather than turn from evil.

I see the Church, asleep, deaf, blind and blemished as it is busily carrying on without adjusting its course as if the world will continue on forever, and all the signs of the times and the word of the Lord is saying to repent, to come out from among them or we will suffer the same wrath appointed to the wicked.

rev-317To the Laodicean church Jesus said, “‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot.’So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.’Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and {that} the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. ‘Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent. ‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. ‘He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’ “Rev. 3:15-22

When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth [his] sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: Mat. 25:31-34, 42 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

Summary

Indeed we do live and have our being under God’s grace. However, a sinful nation is a sinful nation and God is a God of justice that changes not. He will judge nation by nation according to each nation’s deeds. If God doesn’t judge America then He would have to go back and apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.

No nation can be great if sin goes unchecked. God had made a promise that Abraham would become a great nation, so God let Abraham in on the pending destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. In a sense Sodom and Gomorrah were stinking to high heaven and God came to confirm that indeed this was the case. He sent two scout angels who validated the sin and got the righteous ones out of way of God’s judgment.

“since Abraham will surely become a great and mighty nation, and in him all the nations of the earth will be blessed?”For I have chosen him, so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing righteousness and justice, so that the LORD may bring upon Abraham what He has spoken about him.” 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.” Gen. 18:18-21

America is no longer a God-fearing nation nor resembles what our founding fathers established under the leadership of God’s truth and sovereign hand. Godly judgments will continue upon our nation until we repent of our wickedness and return to God. In the end there will only be two belief systems.

Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; {that is,} the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. 2 Th. 2:8-12

I believe America will turn back to God eventually but it will not be before the light of this great nation has all but been extinguished. Many climatologists will excuse the judgments as “global warming” and not see the hand of God at work. America will see many more harsh judgments in the coming months and years with ever increasing severity, even to the point of invasion from foreign armies dividing the nation in half. Internal strife and violent distractions will cause our leadership to turn their watchful focus from foreign threats to internal disruptions at a time when our enemies are saying, “Peace and Safety”.

Prophecy 6-10-09

Indeed I have and will continue to judge this nation for as a harlot chases after her fleshly needs, so does this nation. I created America to be the jewel among the nations and she has become a hard stone which no longer shimmers in My light. The dullness in her leadership is staggering and causes me to wave my hand in front of their faces, but yet they do not see the ways of the Lord.

I tell the ones who name Me as Lord, to run for My cover and hide for a little while for there is a season coming upon this nation that will cause you to fear and tremble if it wasn’t for My covering. Draw near to Me, get ever closer to Me and you will find peace and rest for your weariness. The faith of yesterday will not be enough for the days ahead. You must grow in your faith and increase in hearing My voice for it is by hearing that you will know what to do.

Get your own oil and do not wait or depend on someone else, for they will only have enough oil for themselves. You must learn to carry your own walk in Me and not be a burden to others. I Am the Lord that cares for you. Trust in Me and Grow up now! Come into your faith! Be established as My Bride prepares for My return! The one that awaits to come is stirring in His chamber. Be still and listen for His voice and you will hear Him say, “Make yourself ready for the One who comes as a thief in the night!”

Read 2 Peter 2:1-10, 2 Ch. 7: 14, Mat. 25:1-10

  • Elisha Followed Elijah to Capture His Anointing

    “So he departed from there and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, while he was plowing with twelve pairs {of oxen} before him, and he with the twelfth. And Elijah passed over to him and threw his mantle on him. He left the oxen and ran after Elijah and said, “Please let me kiss my father and my mother, then I will follow you.” And he said to him, “Go back again, for what have I done to you?” So he returned from following him, and took the pair of oxen and sacrificed them and boiled their flesh with the implements of the oxen, and gave {it} to the people and they ate. Then he arose and followed Elijah and ministered to him.” 1 Ki. 19:19-21.

    fieldElisha demonstrated his desire to go forth and carry that mantle, so he went and slaughtered his oxen, broke up his plow, made a fire and offered up his oxen to the Lord as a sacrifice.  The sacrifice he was making was more than just burning the oxen and the plow! That oxen and plow were his way of making a living, it was his way to feeding himself and his family. It was his job and his identity and Elisha demonstrated that he was willing to give it all up to follow Elijah the man of God, in order to take hold of the mantel and capture his anointing.  Elisha was going to follow Elijah because he trusted God to take care of him even if it meant losing his source of income and leaving his home behind.

    Here is what Holy Spirit revealed to me today. I did the same thing when an angel appeared to me in a dream in June of 2005. The angel said, “It’s time to go!” I said, “Am I being fired?” The angel said, “It’s time to go!” I said, “What about all my stuff?” He said, “You don’t need that anymore.” I got up from my desk, walked down a long hallway with the angel walking along to my left.  I was staring at the blazer the angel was carrying knowing it represented a mantel and realized, the only way to take hold of the mantel was to be obedient to the call of God, to quit my job and to follow Him.

    My wife and I have done just as Elisha did. Elisha took the pair of oxen, sacrificed them, boiled their flesh with the implements of the plow, and fed the meat to the people. The he arose and followed Elijah and ministered to him. My wife and I have let go of our livelihood by sacrificing our jobs and careers, our income, our identity, our home, our friends, our church and our city to follow the call of God.  It sounds easy when we read about Elisha doing this, but try putting yourself in his sandals for a minute. When you’ve been established in a career for a number of years, you’re salary far exceeds your needs, you live in a beautiful home, have new cars, nice clothes and then one day you’re told by God to give it all up and follow God into the unknown, what then?!

    And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.” Mat. 8:34-35

    The disciples gave up their livelihood to follow Jesus. Peter gave up his fishing business, Matthew his tax collector position and they questioned Jesus.  “Peter began to say to Him, “Behold, we have left everything and followed You.” Jesus said, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel’s sake, but that he will receive a hundred times as much now in the present age, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life.” Mat. 10:28-30

    Several years ago, we did as Elisha, we sacrificed our livelihood upon the Holy altar of God saying, “We desire the things of God more than the things of this world and we trust You to take care of us!” That makes me all the more certain that God will provide for us because we are willing to follow Him and His plan for our lives.

    My wife and I both sensed in the Spirit that a “move” was coming. We had entries in our journals and God was showing us the location we would move and the house we would live in long before the word came for us to actually quit our jobs and to follow Him. My wife saw the move coming before I did but she ask God to show me as well, which is wisdom. She patiently waited for God to reveal the plan to me without hinting or saying a word about her revelation. She trusted God to show me as well then we would both be on the same page. This is vital for a successful move in God’s plan.

    elijahI began seeing in the first of the year in 2003 but didn’t get the release from God to quit my job until June of the same year when the angel came in the dream. We were also in close consultation with the Pastors of the church in the city were we knew God was appointing us live and to attend church. God had led them through a similar move years prior to ours. They would caution us by saying, “Just be certain that you have heard God.”  When, and only when we knew beyond any doubt, did we resign from our positions and move.

    If you’re going to yoke up with a minister of God you will follow in the same footsteps that they have walked in if you’re going to capture their anointing. Elisha followed Elijah to Gilgal (a wheel rolling), Bethel (house of God) and to Jericho (its moon, Jericho is a very fertile land). I like the symbolism of the three destinations Elisha followed Elijah to. When you put the meaning of the three names together, it says that Elijah and Elisha we’re rolling along to the house of God which is in a fertile land that shines like the moon.

    I can’t stress enough that you have to know for certain, beyond any doubt, that you’ve heard God before sacrificing your livelihood, or you could end up with nothing.  All you will have accomplished is getting rid of your income, your possessions, your witness and quite possibly leading to anger with God because your expectations weren’t met. If you give away your things without God specifically telling you to, all you end up with is nothing and there’s no reward for that. Don’t be foolish with the things God has provided for you.

    God doesn’t ask everyone to quit their jobs and move to the unknown. Often when someone gets saved, the first thing they want to do is quit their job and become a witness to the world. How about becoming a witness for God where you are currently before going out into the world? God requires us to follow Him with our hearts and to take up our cross daily where we are presently appointed regardless of what He has in His plan for our lives and futures.

    You can’t think God told you to move, you have to know He told you to move and have multiple confirmations if necessary. It is a very Holy thing to God and if you take it lightly you will surely be in for a let down. Knowing God had directed you to move doesn’t mean it will be easy. In fact, to follow God where He leads you is a very difficult thing to do. Be certain that to take this step, it will be filled of trials, unknowns and darkness.  Fear will tear away at your faith, so that is why you must know without question that God has told you to move. The verse below says because I have heard what you said it illuminates my walk and lights up my path in the darkness of the unknown. God allows you only to see so far and no more at anyone time.

    Thy word (speech, word, speaking)[is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105

    And I close with this…Know that if God is in it with you then you’re anointed to perform what He has required you to do. Stand in your faith, don’t waver, no matter how hard the times are, or how long they last, for with God all things come in seasons. You will get you life back…eventually!

    Hear God!!!!!

  • My Wisdom Floods the Earth

    Prophecy 1/17/09

    In retrospect I am all things to all people. My wisdom floods the earth and My counsel is wise beyond all measure of problems and doubt. I am full of the wisdom of the ages to come, for I alone have understanding in these matters. Few seek My counsel in these matters for they think they can not know. Indeed they can know for I am not far removed from their paths. Pro. 3:19 The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

    gpsInside of each human resides a part of Me and the spirit of man is molded from creation for man to communicate with Me. It is as much a receiver as it is a transmitter. In your terms today compare it to how a Global Positioning System (GPS) works. It tells Me your location, direction, speed, course and it is always on, always transmitting, always tuned for My monitoring.

    Is. 3o:21 Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left.

    The difference between a believer and a non-believer is that the believer is receiving information about their course, speed, trouble, such as roadblocks, detours and the like as well as information about rest stops, provision, encouragement to press on and so much more. It is My desire that all would come to Me. I love all of my creation equally. In these last days it will become more and more vital to tune in and listen to My distinct voice as I prompt you with information about all manner of things from the smallest detail of your daily life to the realm of heavenly importance.

    Knowledge will flood your soul; the knowledge of God will come in flashes of revelation, in special counsel within My courts, dreams, visions and the unlocking of the mysteries of My word.

    girl_handMy plans are absolute, non-wavering and precise. I will accomplish My plan with you or without you, you must decide your choice. Come along for the ride of your life or pursue your own course that leads to defeat, confusion, disappointment, unbelief and a turning away from Me, ultimately death.

     Jer. 7:23 “But this is what I commanded them, saying, ‘Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you will be My people; and you will walk in all the way which I command you, that it may be well with you.’

    Now is the time to come and buy from Me fine gold and silver. This is the time to prepare for the wicked days ahead. Now is the time to be in prayer, soaking in My Spirit, permeating your soul with the love and wisdom of the Unwavering God.

    Take heed and listen, the storm of all storms is coming in the earth, but now is time of “Preparation of My Bride”. I say Come, Come Now!

  • Exercise In Hearing God

    HearingHearing God, We just make it so hard as believers to hear God. In my case many years ago when I first heard Him, I was quite taken back. I was on a trip from Texas to Boulder Colorado with two friends that invited me to come along to help with the driving. I didn’t know I was on a trip that would lead me into an awesome destiny with the eternal God.

    It just so happened that we got stranded in Colorado Springs and held up in a motel along the Interstate. The next day was Easter Sunday and I got up to go look outside at the beautiful snow on the mountains. As I stared at the beauty of the snow I heard Holy Spirit whisper in my right ear, “Jesus Christ whiter than snow” and then I saw a vision of His blood running down the mountain.

    I pulled the curtain closed real quickly; I wasn’t born again. I didn’t know anything really about God other than in my heart I had being crying out to know Him for months and months. I was seriously considering going to Israel to join the IDF so I could get close to something I knew God had His hand on. The next Tuesday I was back in Texas after work and walking in the backyard at my parents house when the Holy Presence of God came rushing at me from the right side. I knew I was a sinner for Holy Spirit comes to convict us of our sin and to reveal the righteousness of God. I dropped to my knees, I repented, and got up differently. So from that day on I have been able to hear Him clearly even though I can’t say I’ve always liked what He had to say.
    So as Christians why is it so hard for us to hear God? Isn’t Christianity about relationship? Are not relationships built and based on two-way communications and spending time together? Are we not to put value in communication and time in a relationship to protect it and to nourish it daily? So once again why do we make it so difficult to hear God? We forget we are spirit-men and we haven’t been taught that we are created with the ability to naturally flow to God. Have you ever been to a water park that had a “lazy river”? All you had to do was get into the water and it would carry you around as long as you wanted to stay in. I never noticed anyone paddling against the current because it is easy to see others just going with the flow. You see, you jump in, you flow and it’s that easy.
    So once again why is it so hard as Christians to hear God? Our spirit-man naturally flows to God and it will take you there if you don’t paddle against it. Here’s an exercise in hearing God that I believe will help you. Tell your body to be still and quiet (if it has any needs just get a piece of paper and write down its needs and tell it that you will take care of its needs when you’re finished. Next, tell your soul to be quiet, call your spirit-man to attention. (Yes, you can do that…try it)Now just allow you spirit to flow to God, sense His presence. I like to imagine being in the lazy river but this time instead of floating around in a circle, I’m being carried to the presence of God.
    Practice, practice, practice and make your daily aim to soak in His presence like a sponge, your life will never be the same!
