An urgent and weighty Word for the Church of the United States of America.
“My beloved! Watch the red rose, for the last petal is about to fall. Choose this day restoration and revival, or total devastation and destruction!”
During a time of worship this evening, I was suddenly caught up in one of the most powerful and strangest encounters I have ever experienced to date.
Even as I write these words, my hand trembles and my spirit within me is bowed down low.
I humbly submit this word to you America.
There is an urgency in the realm of the Spirit that compels me share what I have seen and heard tonight. Here goes!
As I said, I was in a time of worship where my mind was on the cross and the eyes of my spirit were transfixed on the blood and water that gushed forth from His side as the sword pierced Him, when suddenly a mighty whirlwind of the Spirit took hold of me and brought the nation of America before me.
As I stood in absolute stillness within the eye of this mighty whirlwind, (please bear with me as I share, as this was one of the most powerful yet strangest encounters I have ever had) suddenly I saw a single red rose come up before me.
As I looked at this red rose, I saw that the petals of the rose were falling, one by one, to the ground (like tears falling).
Now as I watched the petals fall, suddenly I heard these words, “My beloved! Watch the red rose, for the last petal is about to fall. Choose this day restoration and revival, or total devastation and destruction!”
Now as I heard those words I felt a sudden shift taking place in the realm of the Spirit and a tangible sense of great urgency settled over the nation.
Then again, my eyes were drawn back to the red rose, where now I saw that there was just one solitary petal left on the stem of the rose.
Then I heard these words, “My beloved! Repent and return to your first love! Make ready and make room, for now is the time for the red rose to wither or bloom!”
On hearing those words, suddenly I was back in the place of worship and I became aware of my natural surroundings.
I immediately felt to bow before The LORD as my whole being was shaken and I felt again a sense of great urgency for the nation of America.
As I bowed down before The LORD, praying fervently in the Spirit for the Church in the nation, immediately The Holy Spirit quickened to me to 1 Corinthians 13:13,
“and now these three remain: faith, hope and love, but the greatest of these is love…!”
Then The Spirit of God showed me again the red rose and I saw that the last petal of the red rose is about to fall.
Again I heard The Spirit say, “My beloved. Watch the red rose, for the last petal is about to fall. Choose this day restoration and revival, or total devastation and destruction!”
America, I believe God is asking you this day to make a choice, and your choice will determine whether the rose withers or blooms, whether you see restoration and revival or devastation or destruction in your land…!
As I came home this evening, I have been crying out to The LORD for you America.
I believe you stand as a nation on the threshold of the greatest spiritual awakening that world has ever seen.
But in this hour, you stand in the valley of decision.
Will you choose LOVE? Love that will triumph over judgement..!
(As I have been soberly pondering on this Word, I believe it no coincidence that I should have received this word in the month of February, the month of love and red roses!)
Blessings to you all.
