“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” 2 Chronicles 7:14.
“I AM in control of everything that happens in this world, but I have given man a free will to decide what road he would take in this life. And because I have given man a free will then many will not find Me in this life.
But as the new year emerges and the wind blows across this nation, I will shake everything that can be shaken. You will see more and more evidence of birth pangs across the land. For a harsh Winter is in store for those in the land. You saw evidence of floods this past Summer but you will see greater ones this coming year. The land will change; and in time it will crack open.
I AM also shaking my church.
I AM bringing low those who have exalted themselves. Many that have been blessed with an abundance of riches and fame will suddenly see that their riches have dwindled. But to those who have humbled themselves and sought my face, I will not only supply their needs, but I will cause them to have an abundance.
For by Me nations rise and fall. By Me princes rule and others are cast down. By my hand I can exalt a nation and by my hand I can bring another one to her knees.
You have been called the land of the free and the home of the brave, but I tell you that I don’t see that anymore. For you have had riches beyond others, and you once stood for what was true and honest, but now you have exchanged that for your own means.
You have had more freedom than any other nation but you have squandered that freedom. Your statue that stands in the harbor will topple on that day. For you said, ‘To bring your huddled masses,’ but you would rather exalt yourselves above them. Some of you say that you care about the poor and the outcast, but it is only to give yourselves a badge for doing so.
Many of you prophesy but you only prophesy out of what man would want to hear. I tell you that if you would still humble yourselves and pray that I would still heal some of your land.
But many of you say these things but you don’t do them.”
