Here is message from November of 2012, that is pertinent to us even today, more and more.
“To what can I compare this generation? They are like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling out to others: “‘We played the pipe for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not mourn,” Matthew 11:16-17.
The Lord says,
“I AM shaking the earth and I am shaking My church. For the shaking must continue if the wine is to be pure. For sour grapes are all that I see now. The fruit is not visible. It is hidden, and yet it will come out when the time is ripe.
For years I have been waiting for My bride. I have been waiting for her to be dressed in My finest gowns, but lo, now is the time for sackcloth. Now is the time for repentance.
The hour is late and yet your lamps are not filled with oil yet. If I came right now you wouldn’t be ready or prepared.
For you have hidden your heads in the sand. Your vision is obscured. Your insight has become darkened. When will you return? When will you come back to me, my bride? For you are much like Hosea’s wife. You are an unfaithful harlot. And yet I still love you.
How will you prepare for the days ahead? Will you hoard up your wealth? Will you stockpile your food and ammunition? Or will you return to me? For my ways are simple. They are understood by the smallest child. But no, you would rather analyze everything. You would rather debate these things to infinitude.
I AM separating many of you in this hour. I AM leading many of you out to desert places. I am gathering some and I AM loosing others. For it is a time for new directions. It is time for the army to disperse. Some will go to the hills. Others will establish their camps. For in due time cities of refuge will be needed for those to run to.
Pay attention. Give your ear to my spirit. He who has an ear let him hear. Thus would say the spirit of the Lord.”
