[ God Maps it out for Us, Step by Step ]

Thus saith the Lord, the God of Heaven.  This life that you're in is not to be taken lightly.  For so have many in the past, taken lightly, this life.  It is to be cherished, blessed, prosperous in everything that is holy and righteous!  So go on with your life __ not!  Rather take time to be obedient to the spiritual life call that I have called to you!  For so have many peoples been: they have gone after the things of the world, not the things of God, or the things of this heavenly existence!

Now to be the one who looks at heaven and turns aside after this earth, its pleasure, its reward, is to chase away the earthly life you could have had.  For only those who willingly give up this earth will be trusted with any joy here.  Those who will give up this earth will get much more of the heavenly riches than could be described here, or ever, in this age!

Those who will not give it up will end up the lowest of the rank of the joy of heaven.  They will have an eternity to subscribe to learning what they ought to have known here, now, on this earth, on its time scale.  For though they have downtrodden this life with the riches of this earth, they have obtained the heavenly realm, but to find they missed the most important mark ever to have reach for!  They will not be sorrowful for having obtained the realm of heavenly joy, but will ALWAYS be aware of what they have missed!!

So you see the riches of His Glory!  His Glory is for everlasting to everlasting to more than you could ever comprehend!  Now that you can see the greatness into which you can now walk _ walk!  Walk in it.  Walk with it.  Spend time with Me [God] in it.  You will be glorified because of your faithfulness.  I [God] am rich with glory for you, for your work, for your time, for your place, in this earth.  I [God] have all power, strength, and deeds for you to have to perform My work!

So why do you not do the works I have commanded.  Because you are too much in the flesh; too much in the fleshly corruption that comes from the world's system.  You are too much in the world's system because you do not heed My commandment to obey the Word of the Lord and do the Will of God in prayer, in other tongues, fasting, seeking My face, seeking My will, seeking My power, seeking My blessings, seeking My pleasure, seeking My ways, seeking My methods of operation _ no, you are on your own because you have chosen to be on your own!  So you have reaped your reward, your reward of flesh!

So now turn and be exceedingly blessed with My power, My ways, My might.  For at this time you can now have it.  You always could, but you resisted My ways, My might, My method.  So now you can turn to My ways, My might, My power, My holiness!  So you should now be committed to the things of the Lord, but not to the things of the world.

Oh, will you be persecuted for this?!!  You will!!!  For My will is for you to stand before all, in My Ways!!  So they that see will turn to notice that you have changed!  You have changed!!  You have changed!!!  So they will begin to persecute you beyond what you thought you could bear!  But stand with Me.  You will have the strength of Me!!  This do: stand with Me, always!

So stand and be alone with My word, My deeds, My will!!

Always learn to stand on the Word of the Lord.  I am that I am.  I am that I am.  I am that I am.  When  you realize what the total power of God is, you will notice that this world will no longer matter!!  It is not important.  Just an area of evil that you pass through!  I will no longer be a distant thing that has to be sought.  I will be right there with you.  Not that I am not there now, but that you are so worldly you cannot notice Me!  I am here, just reach to the Lord and He is there!  I am that I am.  This is power beyond your comprehension!  I will always be!  I am always there.  Just stand with Me and nothing of this earth can affect you, or upset you, or persecute you to the end of your ways for defeat.  I am with you to the end of this age!  I am with you forever and ever!  Just imagine that!  You cannot!  It cannot be comprehended by a mere man, but I am there anyway!

So live after the earth no longer, but stand fast and be a holy victory for Me.  For I am that holy One you seek, whether you realize it or not.  Everyone of you have sought for truth.  Why?  Because I have commanded it of the earth, to seek forth the truth, but the earth rebels against this.  Evil thoughts arise.  They will have nothing to do with a Holy God.  Nothing!  I am Holy.  I am Holy.  I am Holy.  So it always will be.

But only those who are with Me shall perceive that I am that Holy One they are seeking.  They are enlightened by the power and knowledge of God.  They have the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of God, the power of God, within them.  Be one of them.  As many of you are seeking Me, (not the earth, its ways, its evil, but seek Me, show forth ways of righteousness), evil shall flee from you.  Show forth your ways and you will see that though you find the Lord you must still make a decision to serve.  That is the key, a decision to serve that Lord God of All!!

So serve Me, says the Lord, that you will attain that holy crown that you should desire to have.  I am that Holy One of God, that One you should copy.  Copy Me, says the Lord Jesus.  Copy Me and attain that holy crown to hold for the rest of your life __ eternally!

So serve Me.  I say again that you know that I am the righteous One of the Lord.  That you know that way which is right, not the way which shall bring forth destruction of this evil way.  For you see there is a time of learning about these things, a time of remembering of what you learned; but, also, a time of doing these things, continually, for the rest of your life!

As you seek Me, you shall find Me.  Not only shall you find Me, but  you shall do away with those things that hold you back, things which are gods to you, in your life, things that do not belong, things that are not righteousness because of their standing before Me as a god!  Do NOT turn away from this: the will of God.  I will show you what they are.  Turn away from all gods other than the Holy, One True God, Jesus his Son, the Holy Spirit, the life of all!

Now note that the things I shall reveal to you, must be done away with.  If you do not, you shall be damned.  For the things of this life have NOT priority to the things of the Spirit!

Now I shall begin to reveal to you what you must do.  Stand before the world, a sinner no more, but a blood bought, saved, Holy Spirit filled man or woman of God!Let your light shine!  Let it shine so others will see it.  Know that the Lord wants you to shine, to know that the earth needs to save itself from the evil that shall befall it if it does not repent of its deeds, and turn away from them to a righteous God.

Therefore, turn yourself away from the evil deeds that you have been in, and turn toward the living God, turn toward witnessing for God, turn toward living for God, turn toward making your God, the Heavenly Father, your one and only Holy Father, Son, Holy Spirit, to worship and to serve.

So it shall be that as you do this, My Spirit will overpower you to holiness like never before.  ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]

 

[ God is Dividing among His Children:  Serve -vs- Turn Aside ]

For the time is fast approaching when I will divide between those that will serve, and those that will only turn toward a form, not the power, of the Lord God!

There is coming a time that will be strong in the flesh, that the world will see, that will be strong in ways unmentionable, that will take the world with so much glee __ they will see that the christians are fighting among themselves.  BUT NO!!!  I am dividing among My children, those who are dedicated, those who are fervent of Spirit, those who are strong, those who will serve; not those who will play the game of religious experiences, not those who will turn aside when the going gets rough, not those who will turn aside when satan attacks.

Who told you to run at satan's shouting?  Who told you to turn away?  I did not.  I am your leader, right?  Have not I held you when you were disobedient?  Have not I been merciful?  Have not I been righteous when you were not right with Me?  So why turn aside when satan makes a noise?  Have you not understood, have you not read, do you not understand, that the scriptures will make you strong?  Do you not read that I will never forsake, even to the ends of the earth?  Do you not understand, that as things get rough out there, I get stronger in you?  Will you not rather rejoice at this?  For I say, rejoice at this.  Rejoice that you are counted worthy of persecution.  Rejoice that you are counted worthy of prejudice against you.  Note it.  Note it.  Note it.  I am making you strong.  Look not back at your failures.  Not back at that, but just for a moment, look back at what you were, like, say, two years ago, three years ago!  Have not I made you strong?

So now stay that strong __ NOT!  Rather grow stronger, for the fight has yet to begin in strength!

Indeed it is strong today, this fight.  But as it grows, and grows, and grows, you will note that the power of the Spirit with those who truly mean business with Me, will also grow much more than the devil grows.  It grows more than the devil.  What?  The Spirit of the Living God!!!

So now seek Me.  Spend time with Me.  And now that the will of God is to seek, strengthen, grow with the Spirit of the Lord, the Spirit of God Almighty, the One who controls you with everything that can and does occur.

So there you have it.  My power coming upon all.  Upon those who will work the work of the Lord with power of glory, deliverance and blessing!!  BUT, I said BUT!!  it shall destroy those who play the game of religion.  It shall destroy it, religion, and them, the sinners, that claim they serve Me, and I WILL BE GOD!!!

So it shall be, that I will turn and be a God again to a new earth, a new heaven.  For though they call upon the name of God, their hearts, their hearts that I look at, their hearts, their hearts have shown Me that they are unwilling to repent, for they are in love with their sin! ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]

 

[ More Judgment upon the Earth than ever before (Overview List) ]

Now it shall be in times to come, that there will be more judgment upon the earth than ever before.  More than ever in the time of the flood, more than ever in the times of the earthquakes, more than ever in any time before this late age.

That I will be a God, shall be.  I will be a God of judgment!

So it shall come to pass in the next few years, that you will BEGIN to see travail upon the earth, that has never before been.  You will see that following:

__ the earth will turn to violence as never before.

__ the earth will be overcome with diseases which cannot be cured!

__ the earth will turn against itself with the earthquake, such as never before, for the force of it.

__ the earth will turn itself to the command that I gave it: that the earth will always be warm, cold, summer, winter, but, oh!  what a change there will be in the earth's weather!

__ the earth will turn about in space!

__ the violence of the earth will grow to such proportions that the men of the earth will no longer be safe, to the point, that no one of means will want to live in the cities, even to the sending up of prices of the land around the cities, to the place where decent land near main cities will be unavailable.

__ the Lord will turn his heart toward his people, NOT TOWARD THE  AILINGS OF THE EARTH! __ they have repented __ not.  Let them have their rewards!!

So it will be that I will BEGIN the judgments of this evil earth!

And I will continue these judgments until they, the evil ones, the ones who will not serve the Lord God of Heaven __ they have all been appropriately punished!  For this is the intention of My heart from the beginning of this age of evil, that is, the time when Eve and Adam sinned!

So it will be that this earth will be destroyed for their lack of obedience to Me.  But it must not be understood that this was My way at the beginning.  This was not My way!  But I am a God that will allow all people to be set free.  Free to choose their way.  For heaven will never, NEVER, NEVER!!!!, turn around and say that you will be forced to serve the Lord your God.  It is your choice.  And so they have made it with their heart.  Seeking to judge this earth, it will be that they have done to themselves this evil!

Now at this time it seems that there is not much judgment.  Oh yes, an earthquake, a judgment here, or a judgment there; but no, as an earthen vessel cannot last, so you will see this earth not last.  For it will be broken up from the inside!  It will destroy itself from above and below!  And you will know that the Lord has foretold you these events.  ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]

 

[ Fear the Lord and have a God filled Church, or Fall Away ]

So let not My people be afraid.  For where in the Word did I say, be afraid?  No, not afraid, but to fear the Lord, for it is He who will judge.  Those who will fear the Lord and His judgments have attained a way of excellence before Me.  And this way of excellence will be with you forever, throughout eternity, a blessing to you.

For those who will decide to fear the Lord, and not the events around them, will be delivered from these events, and brought to a new height of spirituality in which I will be so strong in you, that nothing, absolutely nothing, will ever be able to take control, except the ways of God.  This is what I told you of in Ephesians, the fourth  chapter, that I would bring about an excellence, a Holy power, a God filled Church, an excellent way, a PERFECT Church!  [ Eph 4:11-13 ]  So it will be that as I bring this Holy church about, you will see the breaking away of those who will not stand the test of time.  That is, they will not stand before the Lord in a Holy manner.  The earth would persecute them!  They would suffer.  They would suffer loss of face.  What would people think?

But I say, WHAT WOULD I THINK!!!!  I, the Lord God.  Do not I count?  Or is it that you think the earth matters more than Me?  Yes, indeed, that's what these who fall away have in their heart, to say, I am of God, but never to take the unpopular stand against the world.  More and more you will see that taking the whole stand of the Lord will mean to stand against all of the earth's ways of evil!

And they will not like it.  They will come down on you.  But oh, these who fall away have not learned that the suffering will come from falling away, not taking the stand of faith, not serving the Lord no matter what may come.  Those who will stand with Me will be persecuted, yes!  But oh, what little that is compared to losing it all!!

Yes, many of those who now follow Me with their lips, will fall away in the next few years.  For they will have to take a stand that is not compatible with their pride of this earth!  That's what it is.  The pride of this earth.  That despicable sin, pride, again.  Make note of that.  Do not be in pride.  For it is the very last option the devil can use for his evil, to cast you down by pride.  Be of humble spirit, obedient to the Word, obedient to the Spirit of the Lord.  Do not turn aside from following that humble, holy, righteous, persevering, faithful, righteous beyond what you could ever comprehend! __ Spirit of the One and only Living God!!

So let this be, that you will make a commitment to serve the Lord, to listen to the Spirit of the Lord, to not forsake this Word, these deeds that the Lord will ask of you __ yes, deeds he will ask of you! __ for this is righteousness, following the Word of God to the full!!

So now, make note that you must take the time before the Lord in prayer, seeking His will, obeying the words I WILL give you; not caring about the earth, its ways, but about the ways of the Lord God of all.

So now remember that the Will of God is to not judge you, but to turn you around to repent of your ways, so you will serve the Lord your God.  ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]

 

[ 3 Ways Satan will Hinder:  Memories, Weaknesses, Pride ]

In the coming days of this age, you will see more than just judgment on this earth.  Satan has sought to hinder you by the following ways:

1.  to remember your old ways, to cause you to tremble in justice with guilt! - your justice is the blood of the Lamb which has already caused your sin to pass away!

2.  he will look upon you to cause you to stumble on your weaknesses - you all have them, but remember I AM YOUR STRENGTH!!  So remember that you have to spend time with Me.  I spent time with My Father while on earth, you must also!  Pray AND FAST before Me, regularly!!

3.  thus will satan do when he cannot succeed in the earlier ways: to cause you to notice your successes in the Lord and to build you up in your flesh, which is pride.  Do not let him!!

So now turn to these ways and remember them, for so I, the Lord, have told you.  These are the ways of the Lord that WILL keep you from falling, and the ways to keep to from staying down when you have!

So it is that I have revealed this unto you, but now make this promise: that no matter how hard you look at yourself, do not look to the fleshly ways any longer; they have passed away.  Now behold, a new creature in Christ Jesus; for so I have made those who will follow after Me.  ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]

 

[ A Division between those who Stand for God -vs- for the World ]

You see there must come on this earth a division, much more than now, VERY MUCH MORE THAN NOW!!.

A division will occur between

    those who will stand for the Kingdom of God, those who will turn aside from the flesh, those who will turn and follow after the Lord NO MATTER WHAT, (this is My will for all);

    and those who will seek after the things of the flesh, the things of the world.  For they will turn not aside to Me but have a form of godliness to which they claim is salvation.  BUT IT IS NOT!!  Do NOT go after those people.  They have chosen the ways of evil.  Turn not to them, but away from them, for they ARE EVIL.  No matter what, turn not after them, they have decided to serve satan.  YES, THEY ARE IN THE CHURCH!  YOU KNOW MANY OF THEM.  THEY ARE YOUR FRIENDS!!  THEY ARE ENEMIES OF ME, saith the Lord of Grace.  They are enemies of Me.  Oh how I wish they were not, not the enemies of Me, BUT THEY ARE, AND YOU MUST BELIEVE IT!!
     

      Now understand this, I tell you this not for love only, but also for them.  That they will read, understand, and turn away, but if not: judgment!!  So it must be.
Now you must be prepared to take on the whole earth, with Me at your side.

For as you do, you will see those things occurring around you.  You will first be called evil, sin, other names too horrible to mention, but you will be in My will.  I know this sounds very much like some of satan's crowd, (turn away from the long sought after ways of the church, to become a more violent person), but no, it is Me causing you to turn away from the world and become like unto Me!  ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]

 

[ God's true Prosperity for My People:  I will take care of all your needs ]

So do not despise this word.  For it is for your glory, for your understanding, for your prosperity.  For you must realize that the Word of the Lord in the 24th chapter of Matthew will come to pass.  All will hate you.  [ Mat 24:9 ]  All will despise you, and they will suffer judgments of God on them.  But My people, called by My Name, they will be blessed.  For I will bless them.

You see, there is a true prosperity, but it is not of the worlds ways, or the worlds goods, (did not I say, put your treasure into heavenly things, the ways of the Lord!).  So you see to put your treasure into heavenly places.  I will take care of all your needs on this earth.  Have not I said so in My Word.  Then why do you doubt Me?  You have!  You thought a lot about what you would do to make your needs felt in your flesh, so you would know what to do to cause them to be met.  I have not said so to do.  I have said turn your hearts upon Me, My will, My ways, My might.  I will cause ALL of your needs to be fulfilled beyond what you could ask or think.

So it is that you will learn to go by My ways, My might!  ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]

 

[ Prophetic Ministry being Raised Up ]

I have long ago begun to restore the ministries of My body that have been lacking.  There are many more to go, but I have had so much resistance from My so-called people, that I have brought about the return (not that I have left them at any time, but My people have forgotten to remember them, to honour those who I have called!), of the prophetic ministry.  I have raised up the prophet in this hour.  Oh, how few there have been in days gone by, but now I have begun to raise up the prophetic ministry, which will always be a strong point of My Church!

There have been so many of My Church that will say there is no such ministry; but I say there is, there always has been, there always will be, even in the ages to come.  For I will send a type of prophetic ministry into the ages ahead.  But it will be different in these ages, because of the different needs of this time.  But, now, there is a strong call to the prophetic.  A call that I have brought about for the guidance, the restoration of My people, for various needs.  Do not get bent out of shape when they come and deliver a message that is not in your keeping with your understanding of My work.  But rather, go to the Lord, seek Me!  I say seek Me, that you will know whether it came from him, a devil, or from the Holy Spirit of God.  This is right, that you should always, (and I mean always), seek Me to find out if it was of God.

Many of My people have heard a word that I sent, and then have turned and said in their heart, it was not of God, I know what the Lord wants here, this could not have been of the Lord.  But they missed Me.  Do not miss Me.  Do not miss Me.  Do not miss Me.  Do not miss Me, for I have desired you to follow more accurately all things of Me, for so is My word in you, that you will know all things, to righteously fight the demons that come to you soon!  ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]

 

[ You Will Have to Fight for God in a Spiritual War ]

For you will have to fight.  There is a spiritual war on.  You will have to fight.  You will have to fight.  There is a spiritual war on!  Do not be deceived.  I am the Lord God.  You will have to fight for Me.  But fight not as the world, fight with love, with the Spirit, with the Word of the Lord.  Fight for the ways of the Lord with Power from on high, not in the flesh.  For the flesh will reap corruption, but the Spirit, life eternal.  For so is the will of God that you defeat your enemies before you seventy times seven times!!

Now hear this word in the truth with which I have sent it to you.  Do not be deceived, that satan can be attacked on the level so many christians have sought to fight him on.  No way.  He will defeat you right away.  He will defeat you with hardly a fight.  But fight him on the way of the Lord __ Spirit Power from on high, the Word of God __ this is how to fight the devils that come to you.  Make no mistake about this.  Satan wishes you destroyed!  That you must know.  The only way around this is to have your spiritual armour on, and ready for battle.  The most important of all the armour is love, faith, obedience to My Word, HUMBLENESS.  These will always carry you through.  That's all you need.  With these you will learn of others you will need to have, but with these you can begin and know that I will teach you from the Word of the Lord all things!  ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]

 

[ No Disease shall be on My People ]

Now learn this Word of God.  That all shall be restored to the body.  That is, the Church, Body of Jesus, shall have all things brought back to them that have been taken by satan.  No disease shall be on My people.  You will see it!  I shall bring it to pass.  But before you see this, you will have to see that the Word of the Lord is feared in this Church!  They have not the fear of the Lord.  For so I said, that the fear of the Lord is the BEGINNING of all wisdom.  So they have not had any wisdom.  They never even began it __ wisdom from on high!  So turn and know that the fear of the Lord is for your good, that you will know what is right.  To fear the Lord is to know that it is He who will punish the wicked, the disobedient of the world __ and of My Church!  ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]

 

[ The Seasons will become Hard to Recognize  ]

For the days of judgment are upon you now.  It is here.  But you will see so much more judgment in the coming years.  In the next twenty-two [22] years [1996 + 22 years = 2018] you will see this earth's atmosphere and its weather so upturned that it will be hard to recognize the earth and its seasons.  While the seasons will still be there, they will be so different that you could not say, if you suddenly went there without any knowledge of what the changes were, this is a certain time of the year.  It would be impossible for you to look at the weather and say what the season is.  That's how different it will be.  Because this earth has sought to be alone, without the Word of the Lord God, it shall have much more judgment that this.

Natural disasters of magnitudes beyond what you could imagine are soon to be upon you.  Only those with a heart to Me, to My Word, to My way, WITHOUT ANY TURNING TO THE WORLD, WILL BE SAVED in this time of turmoil.  So examine yourself and let yourself know, I am going to serve the Lord My God, always, with ALL of My heart!  ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]

 

[ Stand Up and Serve God ]

So now you see the still small voice of God that has told you to repent __ get it together with your God, stop putting the things of God to the sides of your life, and start putting them foremost in your life.  It is important that you remember that God is to be feared.  For he has the power to protect you and to condemn you!

Now listen to this voice of My prophet.  It is for your good.  I do not wish to condemn anyone, but those who will stay with the devil MUST BE CONDEMNED!!

So it will always be with My will.  That those who will stand up and serve Me with all of their heart, will be saved; but those who will not, must be condemned.

So you will see this occur as I have stated it.  I, the Lord your God, shall bring it to pass.  ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]

 

[ Colder and Windier Weather to Set Records ]

As the weather changes, and becomes more unpredictable, there will come a change in the earth's atmosphere.  These changes will be said by man to be a short lived swing to colder, more unsettled weather patterns, that have occurred in times past, but not to worry, it will pass, and then things will get back to normal.  BUT NO, I shall not allow this!  It shall continue to get worse over the main pattern that I will bring upon this continent of America.  They will see a permanent change in their weather patterns that will not go away.  Instead, it shall grow colder and colder, with not only a colder pattern, but windier weather than has been known to man in recent history.  Indeed they will be noticing a trend of new colder and windier records being set by this command that I have stated.  ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]

 

[ Judgment before redemption:  Be Delivered, or Be Destroyed ]

So thus saith the Lord, the God of all things.  This is the way it MUST be: judgment before the redemption of this earth!  Do not doubt.  This will be: the destruction of the planet.  If you will follow Me, I will protect you in all of this; if you will play the games of religion, YOU WILL BE DESTROYED!

More and more there will be destruction of various types throughout the earth.  And the earth will begin to wage war against the enemies of it, those who serve satan.  Now I will deliver those who serve Me, but understand that you must learn to trust in your God, not in your flesh.  For those who will trust in their God, the God of all, the God of heaven, the God of the universe, will not be shaken.  For I said that you will not be shaken, and I WILL be with you to the end of the age, and yes, beyond to eternity!  ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]

 

[ Earth, Stars, Planets and Meteorites: Change Orbits ]

The earth will begin to stagger in its orbit, and there will be a change that will worry every single person on the earth that knows what it happening to the solar system.  There will be a change on the orbits of many stars, planets, and meteorites.  Meteorites will hit the earth like never before.  Those who have stood before the earth, saying that they will not be overcome, will be the first to be subject to this judgment of the earth's evil!  ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]

 

[ See the End of this Age violence Without Fear ]

So the end of the age will be with My power coming upon all of the earth in its evil, and to rain down from Heaven the wrath of God!  But, however, I have said this so you would know that the end of this age will be very violent and very disturbing to the inhabitants of this planet, but not to My people who have put their lives aside for My sake and the sake of the gospel!  For I have said it, and it shall be!  Those who will repent and serve the true Lord God of all, the Lord God of the Bible, repent, serve Jesus the Son, who died for your sin.  Then you will see the end without fear, for I shall overcome!  ^  Events surrounding this prophecy.]
