So much is going on right now. Staying before the presence of the Lord is a necessity more than option.
Last night I was teaching about an emerging Issachar prophetic movement that is coming forth now in power. I found out later today that there was an serious earthquake in Mexico.
About six years ago I had a vivid dream about a place where I was in a train station and I was trying to get out of the city. The sign on the station was Veracruz and a man who I believed was an angel got me quickly on the train and out of the city.
The man asked me why was I trying to leave. I told him there was about to be a dangerous earthquake there and there was a nuclear reactor there. I had no knowledge of the place Veracruz and that there even existed a nuclear reactor in that area.
Needless to say when I heard about this earthquake I immediately went back into fervent intercession. Tonight we will be talking about how to navigate through times of trouble.
I am praying over the various troubled regions. The earth is in heavy travail.
Here is the word that released six years ago … around the same time.
Word of the Lord ~ April 2011
“The following is the Word that I received from the Lord for the month of April – it is a very sobering word and it should shift our thinking as to how we perceive things concerning the Lord’s longsuffering with our nation and what is about to occur during these next four months.
Does this word of caution say to us that we are at the end? No, but what it says is that we are approaching a very serious course of events that will directly affect us as a region and as a nation and we need to be prepared spiritually and naturally.
“Now Elisha was suffering from the illness from which he died. Jehoash king of Israel went down to see him and wept over him.
“My father! My father!” he cried. “The chariots and horsemen of Israel!”
Elisha said, “Get a bow and some arrows,” and he did so. “Take the bow in your hands,” he said to the king of Israel. When he had taken it, Elisha put his hands on the king’s hands. “Open the east window,” he said, and he opened it. “Shoot!” Elisha said, and he shot.
“The LORD’s arrow of victory, the arrow of victory over Aram!” Elisha declared. “You will completely destroy the Arameans at Aphek.”
Then he said, “Take the arrows,” and the king took them. Elisha told him, “Strike the ground.” He struck it three times and stopped. The man of God was angry with him and said, “You should have struck the ground five or six times; then you would have defeated Aram and completely destroyed it. But now you will defeat it only three times,”2 Kings 13:14-19.
In this time the strife of men have come before me and the wrath of their purposes are as a result of their own motives of self-exaltation.
So I speak to My remnant in this hour and say, “you must be prepared!”
You must set My instructions in place and move forth in truth and righteousness, as I lead you forth today; because there are those who refuse to hear and refuse to make the necessary adjustments.
Some will begin to see what is ahead and what is coming before it is too late. It is important that you not be overwhelmed by what is about to occur around you, but you must focus and move forth to continue to expedite and establish the kingdom of God through your life by intercession, repentance for your nation, and becoming a part of the strategy that I will utilize as you walk in the obedience of my word.
So be very focused, because as you prepare for the trouble ahead — you will have to move quickly to faithfully carry out the plans that I place before you.
As this season intensifies, the shaking that you now see upon the land will continue to follow its course. But how you approach and deal with these things is vital to your survival.
You must be able to navigate through the trouble that is looming over the land. Know that I have a plan for my people and much will be accomplished in a short period of time.
It is because you are now on an accelerated track and a determined pathway that is moving with great momentum. Your assignment is to walk in truth, speak My truth in righteousness, and lead others to the life and light of My glory and presence.
So strike the ground many times and I will give you the power and wisdom to overcome the obstacles that you will face.
But you must be determined and deliberate, for I will show you and walk you through so that you may execute the important things that must be done now.
Remember what you do now will determine your very ability to survive the plans of evil men that seek to destroy your nation. It is a corrupt people, a corrupt government, and the sins of the people that have come up before me.
But you can have an effect on things, such as:
Bringing others to salvation so they may be free from the bondages of Satan.
Prayer, intercession, and repentance – fervent prayer can determine the intensity of how this engagement in war will escalate, where it will escalate, and in what way it could escalate.
Receiving My wisdom to set in place My plans so that many will be helped and escape famine and find safety.
So set your arrows to reach far and strike the ground many times. I will walk you through to be victorious in a time where the strife of men has come before me and judgment is at the door.
You will see in your own land – major involvement in war that will result in destruction within your own borders.
You will see in your own land – attacks of terrorism and retaliation that will cause major damage within the United States.
You will see in your own land – fighting amongst the brethren that will escalate to violence.
This is as a result of those who have become embittered with rage and hatred, carrying prejudices and issues of dogma, political strife and financial destitution. This provoked division amongst the people has triggered evil and darkened the hearts of many.
The greed and arrogance in your nation has caused serious consequences – that will lead to total financial collapse,* famine and violence.
That which I speak of has already begun as a result of most recent decisions and developments that have set things on a course that will come to pass.
You Must Focus!
There are many things that people are concerned about now, that will no longer be important later due to the things that are about to occur.
People have a perception that everything that I am saying now will be happening in years and not in months. But hearken diligently, for these things are fast approaching.
The time to answer your higher calling is now. The time to prepare for battle is now. The time to be diligent in the work in the kingdom is now.
It is important that you will not be caught unaware, so prepare now. Rise up! Be prepared for what is coming between now and the next four months.
Secure your surroundings (home), but more importantly secure and fortify your life in Me.
Help others to see and understand the hour in which they are living. Is this not the purpose by which I first called you: to walk with Me in the liberty of My peace and My love, to bring others into the kingdom?
So that the light of my grace will build and restore the faith of those who have lost their way and are weary without understanding.
You must understand that this is your shining hour because you will see the glory of My presence upon those hearts who have turned toward me and who have said “Yes” to My will.
I AM quickening and strengthening them to stand in the gap for others. There are those who will come quickly into the light of my glory and share their experiences.
Encourage those who are afraid and have been deceived by the lies and snares of the enemy. I will move upon their lives as I reveal My plan before them so they may go forth with the mandate of this hour.
And there will be those whom I will meet, restore, and renew in the quiet night of prayers and supplication, and they will be changed, says the Lord.
So in this time you must be strong, quit ye like men who are ready to face a battle on several levels – on your knees in prayer, repentance, and supplication; also in physical implementation of the necessary safe guards that are important to bring forth now.
Make food preparations; prepare to provide water and shelters for those who will be greatly affected by the trouble in the land.
Be ready to strengthen, encourage, and teach others what I have taught you. So strike the ground, for I have given you the victory, says the Lord. But you must be ready now – for what you do this month of April will better prepare you.
Know that the same time that you see these things you will see the enemy come under judgment. Some goat nations are about to suffer judgment right in the very midst of their plots and plans.
Pray – for there are some nations who are hanging in the balance – with fear and confusion – some will be changed and switch their allegiance from Satan and turn their hearts towards me.
There is an evil nation that will lose their leadership to a more evil regime.
The earth is in travail and My sons and daughters will rise to prevail even in the most troubling of times, because I have prepared them for this hour and they will overcome the works of the enemy.
Move forward with unity and the grace that I have given you – even connect to others with like vision and similar assignments so that the work ahead will be better established.
I will release great strategies and answers that will bring great resolve. Your faith is the most precious thing that you possess matured in My love.”
Pray for these Regions
They are about to be physically shaken (earthquakes), others shaken through upheavals and shakings within the government.
Pray without ceasing. Pray for the people and the lands. Pray for those who belong to Me. Pray even for those who don’t feel as if they need Me. Pray for those who have turned away and refuse to follow – but will return unto me and repent and also for those who are willing to lose their lives and will gain theirs unto eternal life.
