“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body,” Romans 8:18-23.
“For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ,” Ephesian 4:12-13.
“For I tell you, this earth will go through many changes.
There will be changes as the earth erupts. There will be changes as the land masses shift.
There will be changes seen as the weather patterns change. For these things must come.
I tell you that you have seen some of this, but these things will intensify. For the earth and everything in it, is experiencing birth pangs.
For all these things must come. For they are all a part of ushering in the sons of God.
All nature awaits the time when my sons and daughters come into their full maturity.
But your maturity is wrought through great upheavals and times of trials. And so it is also seen in the earth around you.
And so you see, the great stretching that you have been experiencing, is all a part of My final plan.
For then when all the great eruptions are seen around you, then you will be made ready.
But don’t shrink back in fear; strengthen that which remains within you. For there is a seed deposited there.
And that seed that is deposited there, will grow, and it will flourish within you.
So when all the great battles are seen around you, rise-up, and that part that lies hidden there, will along with Me, fight those great battles that are seen all around you.
So yes indeed, war will erupt on your very shores. And yes this civil war that has been brewing now for some time, will become manifested around you.
For I have said time after time again, that a great division is coming. And now some who didn’t perhaps know of it earlier, are now becoming more aware of it.
For you see, there are ‘catch phrases’ in the prophetic. Some hear these things from other prophetic voices, and then that phrase or word, becomes ingrained in them.
But many in the prophetic fail to see the hope and the spiritual strengthening that I AM also doing within them.
Many see and are now pronouncing the calamities, but they are failing to know the other side of the coin.
So know this, and take good caution, you who are young in the prophetic; learn to balance these calamities that are coming with an awareness and a knowledge that I AM also strengthening you to endure through all of these great calamities that are coming.
And you others who now have been prophesying for some time; come back to Me and sit down before Me,: says the LORD.
“You are also in need of balance. For have I not given you two eyes?
Have I not given you two arms and two legs?
And so use each of the two of them to do the things that I have asked of you.
Learn the value of balance. Otherwise, you will see the calamities that are coming, but you would have failed to be prepared for them.”
