Stamped with His Image

Alison Papenfus

As I was praying this morning I saw a huge furnace with an opening in it, and someone holding a long rod on the end of which was a tiny container with a dirty piece of something or the other. He thrust the container into the furnace, and the dirt was instantly incinerated. Then the substance began to melt - and I saw that it was pure gold. As the whole mass melted impurites came to the surface and were burned away or skimmed off with an instrument that looked like a thin bladed knife.

Then the Lord said to me "I took you out of the world and I melted you down; I burned from you all the dirt, I skimmed off you the dross, I purified you. I worked on you individually - and though you cried out, you understood the need for purity; you have submitted to me in this painful and prolonged process - and for now it is finished - I have taken you out of the fire"

I saw the container removed from the furnace, a rough mass of molten gold lay in the centre - shaped like a rough edged circular coin. It was allowed to cool for a while. Then suddenly, as the gold began to harden, a huge circular stamp - like the old fashioned stamp used on a wax seal - came down hard upon the gold. The imprint of the stamp was violently forced into the surface of the gold. So violent was the force that the edges of the gold had been forced outward so that it was no longer completely round, but had an uneven scalloped edge.

Then the Lord said to me " I have stamped you with the imprint of my ownership. You are mine. There have been times in this process when you have cried out "WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME?" It is done. You are stamped with my image - all men will know to whom you belong - it is written on you, it is imprinted upon you. You are unmistakably the Property of the Lord of Hosts"

Then I saw a pathway, covered in thick dust. And dropped along the pathway were gold coins - each one with the uneven edge, no two exactly the same in shape, but all stamped with the image of the Lord. The purity of the gold caught the light and glowed amongst the dust of the earth where they had been dropped. The dust into which the coins were dropped looked so much like the images of the streets of New York we have seen in recent dreadful hours.

The Lord said to me "You have found yourself grovelling - flung among the dust - and cried out to me - 'What am I doing here? After all you have put me through? Would you throw me out? Have you no further use for me?' And I have said to you 'Peace! My purposes are determined. I have prepared you for what is to come' And you have asked 'How can this be God?' But this is the day for which you have been prepared, the time and the purpose is now upon you. You are about to find yourself in the very centre of my activity on earth"

I saw a man walk along the path. He was stooped, beaten, in rags; his eyes were cast down; he saw the coin. The beggar had found a treasure! He picked it up and looked at it in wonder. He took no note of the un-finished edges - he saw the purity of the gold and the image of the Owner. The work the owner had done in purifying the gold and hammering in his stamp spoke more loudly than words to the one who picked up the coin.

Then the Lord said to me "I know that you feel unfinished - and I know that my work on you is not finished. But you are stamped with my image - you are mine. I have dropped you along the highways of life, and you have felt the rub of the dust and the heat of the sun. But never has the place into which I dropped you been an accident.

"You are set like a beacon for those who look down. They dare not look up - for they fear me. They are without hope - their pockets are empty of anything of real value. They are like the beggar who hopes against hope that someone may have dropped a $100 bill in his path. And I have dropped you in his path" says the Lord

"You are the gold I have refined. I have stamped my image in you. When they pick you up - they will see my image. It does not matter that you are 'unfinished' - all that matters is - the purity of the gold and my image in you. Your testimony of my image will point them to me. It is the very ones who would not dare to look to me that I will cause to pick you up"

Then my view lifted and I saw a length of the dusty path. All along it were beggars - men, women and children, each gazing with wonder on a precious - but flawed - gold coin laying in their palm. I said

"Lord - what do you want us to say to them?"

and the reply was

"Nothing. My image in you will speak. You do not need to persuade anyone of anything. Just be what I have made you. Glow with the purity of the furnace. Reflect the image of your God which he has stamped into you. Know that you are yet unfinished - just be what I have made you."

The Hedge Has Been Removed

By Bill Burns

As Christians we should be mourning over America in the same way Jesus mourned over Jerusalem.

Matthew 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!

Matthew 23:38 See! Your house is left to you desolate.

A great tragedy has occurred in this land that we so love. America the beautiful, so blessed by God until this present time. This nation, born under God, has become as Jerusalem of old once Jesus Christ was rejected.

I have asked the Lord what happened in New York City, and this was His answer to me: "What happened at the World Trade Center was the work of the enemy. The work of the enemy was effective because My hedge of protection has been removed because America as a nation has turned away from Me. I have sent My prophets to America for many years. The warnings have been given, and for the most part ignored. The time has now come as it did to Jerusalem of old when the house has been made desolate (void of protection)."

2 Chronicles 7:14 "if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:15 "Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. 2 Chronicles7:16 "For now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.

The Lord then instructed me to examine the signs that occurred for more understanding, and this is what I have seen.

The tragedy took place on September 11, just 8 days before the first day of Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets). Eight is the number of new beginnings. I believe that the first trumpet of Rosh Hashanah will signal the beginning of events of the end of the age. The second trumpet (last trumpet) will call the Church home to meet Jesus in the clouds of His glory. Please note that I said that the events will now begin. They may, however, take years to come to completion.

Matthew 24:6 "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. Matthew 24:7 "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. Matthew 24:8 "All these are the beginning of sorrows.

On May 26th this year I wrote an article on the Judgment of the Church. In that article, I referred to the collapse of a Jewish wedding hall. The collapse of the hall took place in Jerusalem and was a sign of the coming judgment upon the Church. This judgment will bring a separation of the true Church and the Babylonian church. Judgment will then, at a later date, come upon Mystery Babylon.

There were two towers that were destroyed, which represent two judgments that will come upon man-made institutions. The first is Mystery Babylon, the harlot church (Revelation chapter 17), and the second judgment will come upon the world itself and those who worship the god of mammon (Revelation chapter 18), denying the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

The collapse of the second tower of the World Trade Center represents the rebuilt tower of Babel. The common language of the people of the world is money. As it is stated, money talks, but that language which has become the god of many is collapsing.

It is written, and the scriptures cannot broken, that the kingdoms of this world will (come down and) become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He will reign forever and ever. The seals of the scroll have been opened, and the trumpets of judgment will soon begin to be heard around the world.

We pray that our gracious and loving Lord will bring comfort to those who have lost loved ones in this incredible tragedy. It is also our prayer that these events will awaken the Church and America and that this great nation will turn back to the Lord Jesus Christ and serve the Living God. If this nation will repent and call upon the name of Almighty God, His hedge will once again be found in place around the borders of this country.

The Lord's hedge is still in place around those who serve Him with their whole hearts and will not be removed from Zion, the spiritual city of His beloved.

Hebrews 12:22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, Hebrews 12:23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, Hebrews 12:24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.

I AM There In the Midst of the Rubble

Stephen Hanson

REV 7:1 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree.

PS 91:11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;

"At this time of this national disaster I AM asking you people to intercede on behalf of America like you have never done before. From the winds I AM calling forth my angels. I AM calling for them to watch over your cities. I have sent them to the eastern edge of your country. I say, fortify fortify the walls that have been broken. Through my Spirit I will redeem you, my people."

"You are mine, you are mine, would say the Lord. Even though there have been the blackest nights. Even though the air has been filled with the dust. Even though your cries have gone on up to Me, and have gone on up without an answer, I have heard every plea of help. I have heard every cry that has been uttered."

"Believe Me when I say that your nation has been weighed in the balance. It has teetered in this balance from side to side for a number of years. It will not utterly fall to one side though. I hold the balance in my hand. I hold you people, in my hand. I have gathered my angels, as I have said. Out of the midst of the rubble and out of the midst of the dust, I will breathe on this people. Am I not a God of mercy? Many of you have many fears. Many of you fear a war that would break out. This nation has been tested. Join together in Me and see what I can do."

"There is a song, a song that is being played. It is the song of Rachel crying for her children. I say, protect your children. They need your security now more than at any time. They need to know that there is a shelter from the storm for them. When disaster comes, protect your children."

Stephen Hanson

The Trumpet

Ras Robinson

My trumpet speaks with a single voice. Listen to me. Many, many voices are speaking out of the flesh now, causing confusion and fear. Some are caught up in lauding themselves and other favorites of theirs for how well they have heard. It is a time of pushing private political and social agendas that I have not directed. Self-promotion is abounding in the midst of this world-shaking disaster. All this means that the sound of the trumpet coming forth is not clear. The trumpet voice that I speak is simple and powerful. You can go to battle with confidence when you hear the voice of my trumpet. This is a time for you to come aside and listen closely and intensely to me. I have directives for you in this hour, strategies that will thwart the enemy that has come against you. But you must turn to me. As a child, I saw this scene: When a hawk began to sweep low over our chicken yard I recall seeing the mother hen gather her young chicks under her wings. She would cluck softly to them, putting her head under her wing and body. Disaster would be averted and the chicks were safe. This morning I kept seeing a picture in my mind of my Heavenly Father gathering me to his side and then bending low to whisper in my hear. He seems to be saying: Repent, run to me. You will recognize and know my voice. My trumpet speaks with a single voice. Listen to me.

1 Kings 19:12 “And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.”

Proverbs 10:19 “When there are many words, transgression is unavoidable, but he who restrains his lips is wise.”

Ecclesiasties 6:11 “The more the words, the less the meaning, and how does that profit anyone?”

We love you, Ras and Bev

Sound and Alarm

George G. Delo

Do not trust in the lying words [of the false prophets who maintain that God will protect Jerusalem because His temple is there], saying, 'This is the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD (Jeremiah 7:4 Amplified).

"Woe to you who are at ease in Zion, And trust in Mount Samaria, Notable persons in the chief nation, To whom the house of Israel comes!" (Amos 6:1).

Our nation has been living in a spirit of pride believing that we are invincible to attack, that our economic prosperity will go on forever, that the greatness of our nation will never falter. In an instant of time we have seen how vulnerable we really are.

This same spirit of pride has been in the church. We have grown complacent and apathetic because of pride. Our attitude has been one of invincibility. We have been living with a false sense of security and comfort. Because we have supported missions for so many years; because we are a nation of freedom; because of our intercession; because of our mega-churches — God will never judge us. We have been self seeking and self serving blinded to the real purposes of God for His church. The Israelites thought they were secure because they had the temple and the law and the priesthood. But God was saying that none of these things will keep us as long as we are living in sin and neglect of God. The church cannot live at ease as long as we are in a world that lies in wickedness. We have said in our hearts, "'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing." We build big buildings, bring in multi-thousand dollar offerings, have all of the amenities the world has to offer, bring in professional worship, gather great crowds of people. But God looks at us and says, "you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked." The church of America has been living at ease with a false sense of security in our prosperity and seeming success. But the truth of the matter is we are spiritually bankrupt and blind to our redemptive purposes. The most recent Barna report found that 95% of born again Christians have never led one soul to the Lord Jesus Christ!

It is time to wake out of sleep and move out of our comfort zones. It is time as Joel declares, to "Turn to Me with all your heart, With fasting, with weeping, and with mourning." "So rend your heart, and not your garments; Return to the LORD your God, For He is gracious and merciful, Slow to anger, and of great kindness; And He relents from doing harm." "Consecrate a fast, Call a sacred assembly; Gather the people, Sanctify the congregation, Assemble the elders, Gather the children and nursing babes; Let the bridegroom go out from his chamber, And the bride from her dressing room. Let the priests, who minister to the LORD, Weep between the porch and the altar; Let them say, ‘Spare Your people, O LORD, And do not give Your heritage to reproach, That the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples, 'Where is their God?'"

There is a trumpet sounding in Zion. God is calling us back to Himself in humility and surrender. It is time for the church of Jesus Christ to rise out of its prostration of complacency and ease and to take its place of glory. It is time to humble ourselves under His mighty hand and recognize our need of absolute dependence on His grace and mercy. We must remember the words of the prophet, "For when they say, ‘Peace and safety!' then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape."

In the days of Amos, the Israelites lived in a time of unprecedented economic and political prosperity. They were the best days since Solomon. And yet the Lord used Amos to denounce the people for neglecting God's word, social injustice, pleasure seeking, self indulgence, and gross idolatry. They were setting themselves up for the judgement of God. And when they refused to repent God brought sudden destruction. We have the same problems in the church of America today. We have embraced the same sins and forgotten the Lord our God. God is showing us that in one moment of time everything of the world that we have trusted in is subject to failure; in one moment of time peace and safety can be removed from our midst.

God is preparing America for revival. With every crisis, with every natural disaster, with every evil turn of events, with every drop in the stock markets, God is preparing the hearts of men for salvation. The church must get ready now while it is yet day. It is time to seek the Lord as never before, to humble ourselves before Him, to give Him the preeminence in our lives that rightfully belongs to Him as our Lord and our God. It is time to recognize that we have been bought with a price, that we are not our own, but bondservants of Jesus Christ to do His will.

God is making a sound in the earth. It is being heard around the world. It is the trumpet of God. Return to the Lord your God. Take with you words of repentance and return to the Most High God with all your heart. Let us heed and obey and gather together as the people of God. Let us begin to stand in the gap for our nation and the nations of the world. Let us prepare the way for His glory upon this earth.

A Prophetic Watch

Romans 12:9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.

America is in a time of visitation. A visitation of great evil, but also a visitation of great grace. Grace is the supernatural power of God to fulfill His will individually and nationally. The Lord's word promises where sin abounds, grace abounds much more. (Romans 5:20)

Let us not miss the opportunity of this visitation of His grace that is abounding in our nation.

  1. Let us come to the Lord in humility and repentance to be examined and cleansed to go forth as pure vessels of His love to a nation and people, bringing healing & deliverance for their grief and sorrow. ( Job 22:30 )

  2. Let us walk in love, repaying no one evil for evil. Blessings and not cursing. Walking and serving the Lord by His Spirit in the sight of all men. ( Romans 12:10,11,14,&17 )

  3. Let us not avenge ourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, " Vengeance is mine, I will repay, " says the Lord. ( Romans 12:19 )

  4. Let us pray and support our governing authorities and military as they go forth as the Lord's ministers to execute wrath on him who practices evil. ( Romans 13:1 & 14 )

  5. Let us pray that every crooked place will be made straight and that the Lord will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron of the enemies of freedom and liberty. ( Isaiah 45:2 )

  6. Let us pray that every hidden thing, God will bring forth into the light. ( Job 28:11 )

  7. Let righteousness and salvation rain down from heaven and spring forth from the earth. Now is the day of salvation! ( Isaiah 45:8 )

Lord, we call out to You, knowing You hear our cry and will answer; showing us great and mighty things which we do not know! ( Jeremiah 33:3 )

Great Grace!

Nationwide Repentance

Clint Franklin

If My people will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2Chronicles 7:14

I fear that our country which was made great by the Lord has suffered a great punishment by granting a legal right for the enemy to attack us and forcing the Lord to withdraw His mighty hand of protection because we have forsaken Him.

We have kicked Him out of schools, banished Him from our society as some mystical and fictitious character, and placed Him as an equal with Buddha, Allah, and other false gods. We have tolerated the insensitive trampling of His Word, His Son and His Name; and have defamed Him, denying His sovereignty.

We have forsaken His Commandments, decrees and ordinances as well as His Son's selfless sacrifice on the cross. We have pridefully declared our depravity with utmost contempt and have likened ourselves to Sodom and Gommorah, perverting our minds, souls and bodies. How else then do we expect to escape the wrath of the Lord, our God, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? The sad reality of it is that we cannot without nationwide repentance.

Why is it that we cannot witness the severe onslaught of spiritual attacks and remain unmoved, but we see clearly our circumstances. Terrorists are hijacking our minds and our souls daily yet we remain unmoved. It takes a physical tragedy to move us and I pray that it will move us in the right direction... the direction of true repentance.

Please share this with other Americans who love this country and pray that they will love our nation's God and enthrone Him as our Sovereign King as they repent and beg His forgiveness and mercy for our manifold sins.

I pray for the families and friends of the victims of this attack on our soil, I pray for the speedy recovery of the survivors and ask the Lord's compassion and healing power be released upon them. And, I pray that after we, as a nation have turned from our wicked ways, that the Lord administer His perfect justice and restrain our leaders from acting in their own wisdom... that they would seek His wisdom as the Israelites did so many times before when they faced their adversaries.

May God have mercy on us and may He be restored to His rightful place in all our lives!

In His Service,
Clint Franklin

Now is the time to spread the Gospel.
Now is the time to speak my Word.

Now is the time - For the hearts of the people are ready - Are open to the Gospel.

Do not pull back in fear.
Do not water down my Word as you speak.
Do not speak out of the flesh or add your own interpretations -
Ways and doctrines unto my Word but speak with all purity in the power of the Holy Spirit.

For my Word will go forth not in mans wisdom who speak with many words - But by a demonstration of the Spirits power. For as I give you the Words to speak - So my Spirit will come upon them and they will fall on their knee's in repentance and you will see my Word work wonders before you my people.

For what was planed to bring much death will bring eternal life to many - For I will turn around the plans of the enemy into good.

Do not be ashamed to speak my Word unto the lost because it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes.

Yes, speak of Jesus Christ and him crucified - Buried and risen from the dead on the third day.
Speak of my blood that poured freely down the cross to set men free from sin.

For today is the day of salvation for the many who are in the valley of decision - Yes even those who were speaking against and trying to stop my Word will listen unto you in this hour.

So Speak my people speak with all boldness and purity for NOW IS THE TIME.

Return To Me

Have I not said that I would raise you up for this hour? Have I not said that if you would repent and turn to me with all of your hearts that I would relent and heal your land? Have I not told you that judgment was coming to a rebellious and stiffnecked people? I have told you over and over that I am coming with a mighty and terrible swift sword. Mens hearts will faint. The daughter of My people is about to be spoiled.

Have I not said that I will bring terrible and swift justice if you would not repent? Have I not asked you to choose this day whom you will serve? Have I not set before you life and death? Choose life so that you may live long in your land. Come to me and I will protect you but hear me now: return to your mediocrity and I will leave you there.

Yes it is time to repent, not to rise up in anger but in sack cloth and ashes. It is time for weeping and mourning for a wayward church, time to fast and pray for those of the sword, of the famine and of the captivity in the heart of Babylon. Rise up out of the valley of death and into the valley of vision for this is where you will see yourselves as I do.

You have prophesied peace when there was no peace. Your prophets have given you smooth words yet many have warned of the judgment coming to the contentious but you would not listen. You have lived deliciously and surrounded yourselves with the lusts and pleasures of this world but now I say to you that this is the beginning of sorrows. Eyes have not seen and ears have yet to hear what I am about to do.

You are always seeking for an enemy to blame but I say to you that you are your own enemy. You look for justice and retribution but I say look to yourself. Yes you must suffer grief in many tribulations but the trial of your faith must be tested in this fire to be proven pure. As soon as you seek to destroy the evil, you join the evil against Me in the valley of Megiddo. You want to die for me? Choose love, compassion, humility and truth. Be strength to the needy in this distress and you will be fodder for the fire of my altar. Rend your hearts and return to Me.

I have told you over and over that I am coming with a mighty and terrible swift sword. Mens hearts will faint. I have raised you up but did I not also say that I raise up the Chaldeans to possess the dwellingplaces that are not theirs? A tumultuous city lies in rubble not slain with the sword, nor dead in battle but from indignation. Would I have used the uncircumsized against the house of Israel if they had not disobeyed me? Have I not sent Abaddon the destroyer from the pits of darkness to execute my judgments?

And who says to me that there is blame to go around in flesh and blood? Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord; I will repay. I will contend with him that contends with you, and I will save My children. Behold as your rulers run to the archers. Witness the fire that they send from the heavens. And know that I Am the Lord and not a man that I should glory in what you do.
