The Towers Have Fallen – But We Missed the Message

By David Wilkerson

On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City were destroyed. Five days later, as I was preparing this message, I looked out the window of my study in our 30th-floor apartment. Huge clouds of smoke were still smoldering from the ruins. They rose from the rubble and drifted out over the Hudson River, passing above the Statue of Liberty.

The following Sunday, just before I preached this message at Times Square Church, I wept at the sight of the utter devastation. I pleaded with God for mercy: mercy for the grieving families who lost loved ones. Mercy for the workers still digging through the rubble, hoping to locate survivors, but finding only corpses and severed body parts. Mercy for all the police officers, fire fighters and volunteers, who wept openly over the indescribable horrors they saw.

Our church was allowed to set up a relief tent at ground zero of the disaster. Ministry leaders and volunteers from our congregation worked tirelessly around the clock, helping to feed and encourage the weary workers.

Six weeks prior to the disaster, the Holy Spirit forewarned our pastoral staff that a calamity was coming. We had scheduled several major events for the weeks ahead, including our Missions Conference and Youth Convention. But God’s Spirit prompted us to cancel them all. Instead, we felt stirred to call our congregation to prayer.

We decided to hold prayer meetings four nights a week. From the very beginning, each meeting was marked by an awesome stillness that settled over the congregation. We sat quietly in the Lord’s presence, often without a sound, for up to an hour, followed by soft weeping and heartrending repentance. In one meeting, I had to steady my knees with my hands, to keep them from trembling in God’s awesome presence.

During this visitation from the Lord, the Holy Ghost revealed there was a reason for the weeping in our hearts. We were being so moved because a tragedy was coming. A severe calamity was coming to the nation. And even though we didn’t know what it was, our hearts were stirred to intercede concerning it.

Then suddenly, the calamity struck. And it hit not only our city, but the nation’s capital. One network anchor declared, “Think of it, our two symbols of power and prosperity have been smitten in one hour.” Little did he know, he was quoting Revelation 18:10: “Alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour is thy judgment come.”

As a policeman from our church helped out at ground zero, his fellow officers kept asking him, “What’s this all about? What’s happening?” Meanwhile, the whole nation has been asking, “Where is God in all this?”

We’re right to ask this question. We need to understand where God is in this calamity. And to do that, we have to trust his holy Word alone. We’ve heard hundreds of opinions from media experts and politicians. But all their rhetoric has begun to sound the same. There’s no real understanding about the meaning of this sudden destruction.

There is one thing I can assure you of: God wasn’t taken by surprise. He knows the thoughts of all human beings, including every ruler, despot and terrorist. The Lord monitors the movements of every person in the entire mass of humankind. He knows when we sit down or stand up. And I can tell you, this one thing is sure: God has everything under control. Nothing on the face of the earth takes place without his knowledge of it, his permission for it, and, at times, his doing behind it.


If You’re a Christian, You
Know God Has Delivered a
Message to America and the
World Through This Disaster.


Ministers and theologians everywhere are saying, “God had nothing to do with these disasters. He wouldn’t allow such awful things to happen.” Yet nothing could be further from the truth. This kind of thinking is causing our nation to rapidly miss the message God wants to speak to us through the tragedy.

The fact is, we have to have a word from God. Like many pastors, I’ve wept and grieved over this awful calamity. I’ve sought the Lord in prayer and through his Word. And I want to tell you, I’ve experienced a grief that’s even deeper than the mourning for innocent people dying. It’s a grief that says if we miss God’s message, if we turn a deaf ear to what he’s loudly proclaiming, then much worse is in store for us.

The prophet Isaiah speaks directly to what we’ve just experienced. (If you object to using the Old Testament for examples, consider Paul’s words on the subject: “All these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come” [1 Corinthians 10:11]. Paul makes it clear: the examples of the Old Testament reveal just how God moves in times like ours.)

At the time that Isaiah prophesied, God had been dealing patiently with Israel for about 250 years. The Lord had sent “light afflictions” upon his people, calling them to repentance. He was trying to woo them out of their brazen idolatry and back into his blessing and favor.

All of the prophets throughout the years had spoken to Israel the same essential word: “Humble yourselves.” Scripture says, “They served idols…yet the Lord testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes” (2 Kings 17:12-13).

But God’s chosen nation rejected his call to repentance. “They would not hear, but hardened their necks” (17:14). These people mocked the prophets who called them to humility. And, instead, they “followed vanity, and became vain…and they left all the commandments of the Lord their God…and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the Lord…therefore the Lord was very angry with Israel” (17:15-18).


God Sent Wake-Up
Calls to Israel.


The Lord’s first wake-up call to Israel came in an invasion by Assyria. This arch enemy attacked two Israelite provinces, Zebulun and Naphtali. Fortunately, the attacks were limited to these two points, and the damage was minimal. Yet God was clearly speaking to his people. The Lord’s chosen nation lost their sense of security. Yet they still missed the message God was speaking.

Israel then received a second wake-up call. This one was very severe. Two nations whom Scripture calls the “enemies of Israel” — the Syrians and the Philistines — combined forces for a sudden attack. According to Isaiah, this attack came from both “before, and…behind” (Isaiah 9:12). This means the invaders came from the east and the west, surrounding Israel. And their sudden attack was totally devastating.

Now we come to the heart of my message, and to the question most Americans are asking: Where was God in this sudden invasion of his chosen land? What were his people to make of the disaster that had come upon them? Isaiah tells us God was faithful to speak to his people: “The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel” (Isaiah 9:8).. God spoke a clear word. And he sent the message to the whole nation.

Beloved, this verse tells us something very important at our own time of devastation. It says simply, “God always sends his word.” Never in history has the Lord left his people clueless in a time of calamity. He has never abandoned us and forced us to figure out things on our own. He always provides a word of understanding.

Even now the Lord is raising up godly watchmen to speak for him in these times. These shepherds are grieving, weeping and repenting as they seek God’s face. And I believe they’re hearing and understanding the Lord’s message behind the present events. Moreover, they’re not afraid to proclaim dire warnings, because they know they’ve heard from God. They’re compelled to speak of his purposes behind our calamities.


I Have to Speak a Word
None of Us Wants to Hear.


Many readers won’t receive the word I’m about to deliver. They’ll think it’s heartless, cruel, unkind in a time of grieving. But, I tell you, if we don’t hear God’s truth and face it, our nation is doomed. Here is the word I hear the Lord speaking to us right now: “The Lord shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together…for the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the Lord of hosts” (Isaiah 9:11, 13).

The Bible makes it crystal clear: God used enemy nations to chasten his people. The Lord wielded these enemies as an instrument of warning to Israel, calling the nation to repent. “O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets” (10:5-6).

God charged this coalition of Israel’s enemies to chasten his chosen people. The Lord was trying to warn Israel, “You’ve lifted yourself up with pride. Now I’m about to bring you down. I’m going to allow you to be disciplined by your enemies.”

The enemy coalition launched their massive attack. And, suddenly, the Israelites watched in horror as their buildings began to collapse. Fires raged throughout the cities, burning down stately structures. In a short time, Israel was in flames. And God’s people began to wail, “The bricks are fallen down…the sycamores are cut down” (9:10).

After witnessing the recent disasters in New York and Washington, we can begin to imagine the emotions of the ancient Israelites. Yet, did Israel repent after this horrifying attack? Was there a nationwide acknowledgment that God was sending them a warning? Did the rulers hear God speaking through the awful calamity? No. Israel’s reaction was just the opposite. The people’s initial fear quickly gave way to a flood tide of national pride. “All the people…say in the pride and stoutness of heart” (9:9).

The Hebrew word for stoutness in this verse signifies a sense of greatness. In other words, once the attack died down, the Israelites regained their confidence. They declared, “The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars” (9:10). They were saying, in other words, “These calamities aren’t from our Lord. They’re simple fate, unfortunate disasters that can’t be explained.

“We’re a great and mighty nation. We’re made up of a proud, unbending people. And we’re going to let the world know we’re coming back. We’ll build everything back bigger and better. Where we used bricks before, we’ll use stone. And where we once built with cheap construction, we’ll use better materials. We’re a God-blessed nation. And we’re going to come through this disaster stronger than ever.”

Doesn’t this all sound very familiar? The Lord himself used an evil enemy to send a warning of chastisement to his people. He wanted to wake them up to their compromise, bring them back to himself, pour out his blessings on them, and surround them with his protection. Yet, throughout their days of grief and horror, God’s people never once acknowledged his hand in it all. No one asked, “What is the Lord saying through all this? Is he trying to speak to us?” No one thought for a moment that such a proud, great nation could be humbled and chastised. On the contrary, the people used the occasion to defy any such thought. They refused to hear God’s warning to them.

I ask you: does Israel’s example hit home with you, after everything we’ve witnessed in recent weeks? Please don’t misunderstand me. I thank God we have a moral President leading our country. I thank the Lord for all the devout Christians who serve in high office. Our church prays diligently for our nation’s leaders. And we’re grateful for the temporary outpouring of prayer nationwide. It’s encouraging to see people sobering up and beginning to rethink their lifestyles.

Yet, even so, we risk missing God’s message to us. Think about it: when our public assemblies call for a moment of silence, we think it’s true repentance. When we see politicians singing “God Bless America,” we think our nation has turned back to God. When we see sporting events observe a silent minute at halftime, we think it’s a spiritual experience.

But is this all that’s going to come out of our recent disaster? Will people in sports stadiums stand in silence for a minute, then go back to painting their bodies in wild colors, chug beer after beer, and scream maniacally for their favorite team?

Like most Americans, I wept as I saw Senators and Congressional leaders standing on the steps of the Capitol, singing, “God bless America…stand beside us, and guide us…” Yet, as I was crying, the Lord reminded me, “Many of the leaders you see singing have worked to rule me out of American society. They are even determined to remove my name from American history books. And they’ve allowed the murder of millions of babies through abortion.”

Suddenly, I was struck by the absolute hypocrisy of it all. We give lip service to God, but we continue our slide into the mire of immorality.


When a Nation Is
Under Divine Correction,
It Will React in One of
Two Ways.


A nation under chastisement may humble itself and repent, as Nineveh did. Or, it may give lip service to God, but then turn inward to its own strength to rise above the correction. There will be a rallying cry, stating, “We have the strength to endure any disaster. And we have the ability and resolve to overcome any problem. We’re truly a great nation.”

I’m as patriotic as any American. And I’m as thrilled as anyone at the unity our nation is experiencing. I thank God for the heroic efforts and incredible sacrifices we’ve seen in the wake of the terrorist attacks. The whole world is in awe of the fortitude and love displayed by the people of New York, Washington, D.C. and America in general.

But we face the same danger Israel did. In our fiery patriotism, we could easily miss God’s message to our nation. And right now, we’re standing at the very same crossroads where Israel stood.

I wonder: if we had lived in Isaiah’s day, would we have listened to his prophetic warnings? Or would we have turned a deaf ear to him? Both Jerusalem and the nation of Judah refused to believe they could be brought low. Yet Isaiah prophesied, “Shall I not, as I have done unto Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols?” (Isaiah 10:11). God was saying, in essence, “I’ve judged other nations for the very idolatry you’re practicing. Why wouldn’t I judge you? What makes you exempt from my law?”

All across America, people are holding meetings for “prayer and remembrance.” It’s right and honorable (and totally scriptural) to remember those who have died. But why are we so afraid to also call for meetings of “prayer and repentance”? Right now, most Americans are focused on remembrance and revenge. Yet, where is the call in America to turn back to God?

As for the punishment of terrorists, Isaiah addresses this issue as well. He declares, “When the Lord hath performed his whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria” (Isaiah 10:12). Indeed, when God was finished using Assyria as “the rod of mine anger,” he destroyed them. Likewise, God will bring down any terrorists who attack and murder innocent people. It won’t be long before they meet their eternal destiny in hell.


Here Is the Message I
Believe God Is Trumpeting
in Our Calamities.


Deep in my spirit, I hear the Lord saying, “I’ve prospered you above all nations. Yet, for years you’ve persisted in worshipping idols of gold and silver. I’ve endured your shameless sensuality, your mockery of holy things, your shedding of innocent blood, your tireless efforts to remove me from your society. Now time is running out for you.

“I’ve sent you prophet after prophet, watchman after watchman. You’ve been warned again and again. Yet still you won’t open your eyes to your wicked ways. Now I’ve stricken you, in hopes of saving you. I want to heal your land, to destroy your enemies, to bring you back into my blessing. But you don’t have eyes to see it.”

If God wouldn’t spare other nations that have outlawed him, why would he spare America? He’ll judge us even as he judged Sodom, Rome, Greece and every other culture that has turned its back on him.

Consider what God spoke through Ezekiel: “Cast away from you all your transgressions…and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye” (Ezekiel 18:31-32).

For anyone who doubts that God feels pain, here is proof positive of his great compassion. He too feels grief and sorrow over death. He’s telling us in this passage, “I take no pleasure in seeing you suffer and die. That’s why I’m pleading with you now: turn from your sin and live.”

God weeps especially over those calamities that befall innocents. In these past weeks, you can be sure Jesus has been weeping over the victims of the terrorist attacks. He is said to “bottle the tears of his saints.” Indeed, I believe many of the tears shed by Christians are God’s own tears, prompted by his Spirit in us.

Yet, at times, God’s justice and righteousness cause him to restrain his pity. And he’s forced to carry out his righteous judgments as a last resort. The greatest example of this is the sacrifice of his Son, Jesus. Justice demanded that the sins of the whole world be laid on an innocent man, and that this man would be condemned to die for all. Tell me, who could be more innocent than God’s own Son? Yet Christ willingly gave himself as a sacrifice, to offer deliverance and salvation to all of humankind.


What Will Happen to
America If We Miss
God’s Message?


What will be our nation’s fate if we reject God’s call to turn wholly to him? What will happen if abortions continue and fetuses are used for research…if we keep erasing our Savior’s name from American history…if we rebuild all things bigger and better, only to enrich ourselves more…if we rely on our armed might rather than on God for power?

Isaiah describes what happens to every nation that rejects God and boasts of its own greatness: “Wickedness burneth as the fire…..they shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke. Through the wrath of the Lord of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother. And he shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry…they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm” (Isaiah 9:18-20).

Devouring fires will rise to the heavens. Darkness will cover the land. The economy will be hit with a staggering blow. And there will be disunity in the nation, in communities, in neighborhoods, in families. People will look out only for themselves, in a desperate fight to survive. And God help you if you come near them.

I was given a prophetic message nine years ago, and I delivered it at Times Square Church on September 7, 1992. Let me share it with you now:

“This warning is not meant to scare you. It’s meant only for you to take to the Lord and pray. This is what I believe God has shown me:

“Thirty days of chastisement will fall on New York City such as the world has never seen. God is going to let down the walls. There will be unimaginable violence and looting. The violence will be so ferocious, it will shock the whole world. Our streets will be lined not just with the National Guard but with militia.

“A thousand fires will burn at the same time throughout the city. The Los Angeles fires were confined to a few sections of that city, but New York will be ablaze in all its boroughs. Times Square will be ablaze, and the flames will ascend into heaven and be seen for miles. Fire trucks will not be able to handle it all.

“Trains and buses will be shut down. Billions of dollars will be lost. Broadway shows will stop completely. Businesses will flee the city in an unstoppable hemorrhage. Such things are expected in Third World countries, but not in a civilized nation like the United States. Yet, in not too long a time afterward, New York City will go completely bankrupt. The Queen City will be cast into the dirt, becoming a city of poverty.

“You may ask, when will all this happen? All I can say is, I believe I will be here when it happens. Yet, when it does, God’s people are not to panic or fear.”

Calls and messages have flooded our ministry offices, asking, “Was the terrorist attack on September 11 the calamity you were prophesying back in 1992?” No, not at all. What I saw coming will be much more severe. Indeed, if America rejects God’s call to turn back to him, we’ll face the same judgments Israel faced. And they will hit not only New York but every region in the country. Even the heartland won’t be spared. The nation’s economy will collapse, and violence will erupt. Fires will consume our cities, and tanks will rumble through the streets.

Perhaps you wonder, as I have, “Can any of this be avoided?” Yes, absolutely. I believe we’ll be given a reprieve if our President proves to be a Josiah. You may well remember Josiah as the king who sought the Lord with all his heart. We all should pray that God would give our President the same spirit that Josiah had, to tremble at his Word. The Lord spoke the following to Josiah:

“Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof…because they have forsaken me, and have (worshipped) other gods…But [say] to the king of Judah which sent you to enquire of the Lord…Because thine heart was tender, and thou hast humbled thyself before the Lord, and thou heardest what I spake against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation and a curse…I also have heard thee, saith the Lord. Behold therefore…thine eyes shall not see all the evil which I will bring upon this place” (2 Kings 22:15-20).

God told the king, in essence, “As long as you’re in power, trembling at my Word and relying on me, you won’t see the judgments to come. They won’t happen during your reign.”

I believe our window of opportunity to respond to God’s call is brief. We all should pray that our nation repents and turns back to the Lord. But our most intense prayers should be for our own hearts: “Lord, let me tremble not at the disasters, but at your Word. I want to hear your voice in all of this. Cause me to turn wholly to you.”

In Contrast

Cindy Allen

The events of last week have surely been devasting to us all and we are all in prayer seeking God so that He would direct and lead us in the time to come. In contrast to the events of last week, I had a vision of the Lord that I need to share. For some time I have been seeing a high hill in visions and the Lord was standing on this hill with His shepherd staff in His right hand. I have known that this was a place in faith that He was calling me to and last week I finally made it to this hill where He was standing. As I approached Him in the vision, He glanced my way and then continued to look out at a vast land that could be seen from this hill. He did not speak to me. I was expected to perceive His heart in this place in His presence. I looked out to see what it was He was looking at. I heard in my heart, "this land is the inheritance of my people. I want them here in my presence." I felt the longing of His heart to be in the midst of His people. I felt the strong conviction of the Holy Spirit in...

This land is a place in God's rest where we intimately know Him and in this place we cannot be deceived by another who is not of Him. We perceive Him in His truth and in His spirit and we are not looking through the image of any other to see Him. As I was standing there in His presence, I understood clearly that I was seeing and perceiving Jesus in His Resurrection in the Third Day that we have entered into. This is where we are being called as a body of believers and coming here was conditional. I had to learn how to discern between death and life, the Law and the Gospel. I had to discern who were Gravekeepers and disconnect with them so that I could be connected with Gatekeepers. Before I could see Jesus on this hill, I had to walk through the gates guarded by the Gatekeepers. The Gatekeepers are the Five Fold, the ministers of God who He reveals Himself through. They walk in His Light and in His Resurrection and they are a testimony of Jesus. To come here with Jesus requires that we have become ...

Once I saw Jesus here, more revelation was opened to me in a previous open vision that I received. This vision was so very beautiful that at first I didn't even notice the fallen state of the building stones. The vision: I saw twelve large, white and square buildings stones. They had been thrown down and were laying scattered on the ground. They were laying in a grassy field and their edges had been trimmed down and smoothed so not to cut. They were laying apart, one from another, and suddenly God's fire came down upon them. His fire was very brilliant and very bright and mostly white. I could see some yellow and orange but this fire was a high energy fire and mostly white. It did not burn like natural fires. It could be compared to a large sparkler in the way it danced. It descended upon the stones very quickly and moved quickly over each of the stones and then lifted off of them and disappeared. When the fire was removed, the stones were connected as a foundation and set in place. Their colors...

The stones are the foundational truths being restored to the church and when they are in place, they cannot be shaken loose. The fire has consumed everything that is not of God and they clearly reflect Jesus where He reigns and rules. Apostles are being raised up and what set the first apostles apart from everyone else is that they were witnesses to Jesus in His Resurrection. When I approached Jesus on that hill, I knew immediately that in leading people here, I would be leading them to be my co-equal to stand with me in unity. The offices are being thrown down because they have been built by the hands of men and rule over God's people in false authority. The ministers of God bring correction, but the judgement seats of their heart have been turned upright. When we are upside down, we don't apply the Word to truth because we can't discern truth in a fallen state.

It is time to seek God that we can all be joined and connected with those who walk in the Life of the Gospel and not in the darkness of iniquity or under their authority. We cannot join Jesus where He is calling us when we are separate. Accept that a corn of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it will abide alone. We cannot go to where God is calling us to abiding alone.

Fear Of the Lord

Mona McReynolds

The recent events have caused great fear and trembling to come upon our country. The kind of fear we all face as humans when terrible things are played out in front of us. There is a different kind of fear that we have overlooked much in our country and that is .....the fear of the Lord. To fear the Lord is to respect with awesomeness our God....all that He is, all that He represents. This is a time for us to turn our hearts to Him in quietness and confidence and offer profound respect unto Him. He is greater than any country, man, or group of terrorists. He is a holy and sovereign God. Let our focus return to Him.

I believe the Lord is cautioning us to cultivate a Holy fear of Him and not the fear of the world. The fear of the world brings terror, unrest, anxiety, distrust, etc.. But the reverent fear of the Lord brings HOPE....and hope is what I believe He wants to deposit into our hearts at this time when so many are "seeing" and "foreseeing" terrible destruction. He would, I believe, have us balanced so that we are not overwhelmed by the "fear of this world" and "fear of things to come". Ps 91 is a good one to meditate on at this time.

I also believe He has taught us by His Holy Spirit and through examples in His word that just because prophets see visions or receive words of knowledge of destruction or coming judgments, we are not to necessarily embrace them as being an absolute surety of things to come. Instead, His whole purpose in revealing these things to us is so that we can "stand in the gap" and intercede so that these things....DO NOT COME TO PASS as we have seen or understood.

We have been given the gift of intercession to stand in the gap as Abraham did for his people in Sodom (at least Lot and his family were delivered and saved as a result of that intercession), as Moses did for Israel, as David did for his people when he sinned by numbering Israel (he built an altar and stayed the wrath of the Lord)...that intercession at least lessened what could have been! There are so many instances in the Bible where they saw what God could do and perhaps needed to do...but they prayed that it might not be so and God relented sometimes. True, sometimes He did not and prophecy was fulfilled exactly as it was written. Just because He reveals, does not mean it is an absolute. If that were so, then why did God tell His people that if they would "humble themselves, turn from their wicked ways , humble themselves and pray, that He would hear from heaven and heal their land"?

We have not been taught completely properly concerning this area and I am not laying the blame for that at anyone's has just become obvious that we have missed some Biblical principals in our intercession. But now we have the chance to learn God's way of intercession and how to function as servants of God in such a way as to agree with Him and His will and to stand in the gap as we should with His characteristics and qualities (we are to be like him) of "mercy, reconciliation, redemption, grace, forgiveness, SECOND CHANCES..... perhaps, if we do, He will relent once more and have great mercy on us and pardon us. Maybe His judgments will come anyway, but I pray that in His judgments, he remembers that He is a merciful Father and will temper his justice with mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

Blessings in Christ,
Mona McReynolds


Awake! Awake!

Joseph D. Long

Awake! Awake! My people who are called by My Name, Awake! Put on My strength, My chosen ones. Put on My beautiful garments that I have provided you with, for no more shall the uncircumcised or unclean come into you. Shake the debris and dust from you. Arise, sit in the dignified place that I have prepared for you for I, Myself have prepared you for such a time as this! I, Myself, will break off the bands that restrain and the bonds that confine My Beloved Ones.

Yes, I have had you sojourn for a season in Egypt, then you were oppressed unnecessarily as was Israel by the king of Assyria - and then taken into Babylon. But what is there that can keep Me from delivering you from Babylon? Even as you were sold for nothing, you are redeemed without money and I see how My people have been taken away for nothing. I see how those who rule over you howl with joy and how My Name is continually blasphemed all the day long.

My people KNOW what MY NAME IS and WHAT IT MEANS. Therefore, in the day that I speak, that I AM He that speaks, BEHOLD, I AM !!! You of the beautiful feet, bringing good tidings, publishing peace and salvation to Zion, saying OUR GOD REIGNS !!! My watchmen lift their voices and together they sing for joy for they see EYE TO EYE, My return to Zion.

The waste places are breaking forth with joy, yes, even Jerusalem, for I the Lord, am comforting My people - for I have redeemed them !! I AM baring My Holy arm before the eyes of all the nations, revealing Myself as the One by whose direction My redeemed ones have been delivered from captivity. All the ends of the earth are witnessing the salvation of our God. I call you from your places of exile, My people, saying touch not the unclean thing... Go out of the midst of Babylon, cleanse yourselves and be clean for you are the vessels of the Lord as you journey from there. I, the Lord, will go before you and I will be in you and you shall not go out as in previous times. I AM your Lord of Breaking Through! I will be your rear guard. Yes, My servants, you shall stand high for you have dealt wisely and have prospered. Therefore, I have exalted and extolled you, making you stand high, even as I have exalted and extolled My Son Who became My servant, being made an object of horror - many being astonished at Him - His appearance and face marred beyond description more than any mans ... So have you, My chosen ones, been made as My Son. So too, shall many be astonished at you because I have transformed you making you into His image !!!

So have been the times of testing, tribulation, trial, scoffing, slander, beatings, the shovings and attacks that seem to never end. YET, I AM is and have been with you through ALL the tests and trials and I HAVE brought you through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, through the realm of Sheaol and the fiery furnace, even from the Lions' Den and now I AM bringing you forth for the FINAL CLOSING ACT OF THIS AGE !!! YOU ARE THE ONE WHOM I HAVE WAITED FOR THROUGHOUT THE EONS OF TIME !!! PREPARE YOURSELVES, FOR THE BRIDEGROOM COMETH !!!!!!!

(Within minutes of this word, the Holy Spirit spoke the following Word to my spirit.)


From out of time did I come and stepped into time - then I stepped back out of time and NOW, ONCE MORE, I AM stepping back into time; yet not in the singular, but in the pluralistic. I AM stepping back into time and this world as I have never before done, no not even from the beginning unto now. I AM stepping forth IN MY SONS and I "WILL" be manifested to ALL THE WORLD as a witness to them and against them. Many will believe and turn to Me and many will reject Me and be forever damned. I WILL, I WILL, I WILL, manifest Myself in My Sons who are My Chosen Ones who I have called from all walks of life and every nation upon the face of the earth.

This is the manchild the woman has given birth to, whom the serpent has tried to devour and destroy, but I have come to her aid. This is He who is destined to rule with Me and govern with Me. Yes, even My prophet Isaiah wrote of Me and all My Sons and I AM have stepped from the pages of My prophet and you are seeing that which has never before been seen, except with the eye of faith in the realm of THE SPIRIT ... It is so, for I AM have decreed, declared and proclaimed it from the most ancient times in the memory of man. Yes, even before I laid the foundations of the earth and hung it in space, I decreed, declared and proclaimed it; says the Holy One who inhabits eternity. I AM the Ancient of Days, I AM the High and Lofty One, I AM the Holy One of Israel !!! I AM YHWH, ELOHIM, EL SHADDAI, EL YONE. I AM THE MOST HIGH !!!

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My Word shall stand for the eternities of eternities - throughout the ages without end !!! I AM HAS SAID IT !!!

Threshing Floor

Tracey Deslauriers

Behold my children, for I am about to begin a new season-a season of radical change and transformation. Just as the seasons change thru the year, so do the seasons of your life and as you walk with me.

Many of my children are and have been in the wilderness...some for a brief time, while others, to them it seems like eternity. If my spirit led Jesus into the wilderness, then why would you not also have to endure this time? Did I not promise that you would never go thru anything that my son did not also endure?

It is during this season that I will bring many to the threshing floor and burn away the chaff, while I also break up the fallow ground many have allowed, causing a hardness in their hearts. It is only those, who will allow my spirit to soften their hearts and who will surrender their complete and total will to me, that will see my glory fall.

Yes, I am about to do a new thing, for I am calling my children to walk in my ways, to be holy just as my son was holy. Are you willing to allow me to uproot the thorns in your life and plant a new seed? Are you willing to allow me to do a new work in your lives, so much so that you will never be the same? Are you willing to seek my face and cry out to me in a way like you never have before?

My children, my coming is closer than you think and it is only those that will allow my spirit to move freely and do the necessary work that will witness the latter rain

Riding On Wings With Me

Zoria Martin

Take your eyes of your circumstances. Take your eyes off others. Take your eyes off other's cirumstances that are all around you. Keep your eyes wholly on me and I will lift you up to ride on thewinds as an eagle with Me. Up here where I AM, above all the dross; and everything that would distract you from being in My presence.

Come, draw closer. I would so hold you tenderly. I will give you eagles's eyes to see. But you have to keep your eyes upon Me. Draw near unto Me that I may anoint your eyes to see as I see...ride on the wings of these winds that I blow. That I am blowing across the land. Your land; all the land. Fear not the fire. Welcome the fire, though it hurts. Though it brings forth tears. Be not afraid to shed forth the tears, for I change them into tears of joy, yes, and songs of praise shall come forth like fountains from your lips. Out of your innermost belly. Because you understand that I am touching your sore spots. I am touching those points that hurt,that I may deal with your emotions, and deal with your strengths. That I amy purge them, purify them, cleanse them. That I mayfill more of Myself within you. And together we shall ride on those winds. And those winds ...I AM blowing those winds. And if you are riding with Me you will not feel the heat or the judgement that comes with the winds that I am getting ready to blow.

But they shall lift you up instead, and empower you to do and say My Father's perfect will, that He wills to be done. So,lift up your hearts. I AM MIGHTY in the midst of you! trust Me! My Beloved Bride.

I have waited so long to hold you...and see you standing at My side. Dressed in your wedding garments. in the beauty that I have given you. beauty for ashes, and standing with the authority, the full authority of a crowned queen beside My side. How I longed for this moment. Be not afraid. Be not afraid. Trust Me!

Even as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings and even as a hen is pleased with her chicks...I am pleased as I see you drawing closer, in love and repentance and honesty towards and before one another..and even nakedness. It pleases Me and I delight in you. As you are learning to delight and trust and love and help each other and one another..even as if I were in the midst of are doing it as unto Me and I am pleased

I Kept Looking

James Kelly

After instruction from our Pastor Tuesday night about prayer and reaching God we began corporate prayer openly and silently and with Holy murmur, I began praying for God to forgive me for everything of tuesday and I kept praying and not long after I'd started this I began to see a house, and found myself on the front porch and then in the interior I kept hoping to find a door and if I did I thought I knew Jesus would be behind that door, but I found no doors, but I did find a circular stair way and took it up stairs every thing was dim and not very focused but, I felt my way around and there was railing that dropped off to the first floor, and then I saw on a landing an ornate piece of furniture a little higher than an end table, but beautiful and made of walnut and crafted and tooled and worked like things were worked a hundred or more years ago, and the I saw a Bible and I kept looking and I saw Isaiah and I kept looking and I saw Chapter 45 and I kept looking and saw verse 15. and then I looked it up in my NLT: I include the foregoing and following verses because they are simply in context..

Future Conversion of Gentiles

This is what the LORD says: "The Egyptians, Ethiopians, and Sabeans will be subject to you. They will come to you with all their merchandise, and it will all be yours. They will follow you as prisoners in chains. They will fall to their knees in front of you and say, 'God is with you, and he is the only God.' "Truly, O God of Israel, our Savior, you work in strange and mysterious ways. All who make idols will be humiliated and disgraced. But the LORD will save the people of Israel with eternal salvation. They will never again be humiliated and disgraced throughout everlasting ages. Isaiah 45:14-17 (NLT)

This Is My Time

Ras Robinson

These are my circumstances. I am sovereign God and King. All things are under my authority and power. You were born into this generation that you might witness and be part of this great thing that is about to happen. Today is a day of worldwide outpouring. I have chosen this hour to show forth both my power and grace. These two, power and grace, will be evident as my plans unfold. Watch and you will see. The world has never seen what I am about to do. Prophets and priests of yesterday longed to see this new thing. And by their faith, they will yet see. My timing is perfect and flawless. What you see as impossible will be made possible by that which I am about to pour out upon mankind and the earth. Preparations have been made. What is thought in this day to be so powerful is nothing compared to the power of the Holy Spirit. My pipes are full of oil. This oil is soothing, healing and life changing. Many of your enemies will become my instruments to open great doors of opportunity for my gospel. They will come to bow and worship before me. Rejoice greatly now! Watch with great faith and expectation.

Zechariah 4:1-7 “Then the angel who was speaking with me returned, and roused me as a man who is awakened from his sleep. 2And he said to me, "What do you see?" And I said, "I see, and behold, a lampstand all of gold with its bowl on the top of it, and its seven lamps on it with seven spouts belonging to each of the lamps which are on the top of it; 3also two olive trees by it, one on the right side of the bowl and the other on its left side." 4Then I answered and said to the angel who was speaking with me saying, "What are these, my lord?" 5So the angel who was speaking with me answered and said to me, "Do you not know what these are?" And I said, "No, my lord." 6Then he answered and said to me, "This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel saying, 'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' says the LORD of hosts. 7'What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of "Grace, grace to it!"

We love you, Ras and Bev
