Sudden Destruction

This Word was first published on September 26th, 2006.  The situation has not changed.


“In MY light, there is only light.  In My presence there is fullness of JOY.  In My presence there is peace, love, faith, hope, humility, and all that is good.  You are dependent on ME for all you need to sustain yourself – NOT THE WORLD’s SYSTEM.  Know that I am greater than this world’s system, greater than this grasping and greed that has filled the world with savagery and hatred, avarice and apathy.

The evil intended on this world is beyond anything you have seen.  But think on this.  Think on the destruction that was in the Bosnia war, think on the destruction you saw on settlers who were kicked off their land in Israel.  Think on the methods that have been used to dispel crowds in this nation and to control the news media.  That is only a tinge of what is happening behind the scenes.  But know that I SEE IT ALL.

I am not astounded, nor am I fraught with anxiety.  I told you long ago, when these things start to happen to LOOK UP for your Redemption draws nigh.  It is hard for the mind to understand violence of the sort that has been already being carried out in many places.  Your lives in your western world are so far from it till now.  But KNOW THAT I AM still on My throne.

I still am the LORD OF LORDS and the KING OF KINGS.

Know that I am WITH YOU until the end of all time.  No matter how bad things get, I am WITH YOU . I am EMMANUEL.  I will not leave you nor forsake you.  Many of you will go forth bearing much fruit to the nations in this hour.  Some will have to go to survive.  Many will no longer WANT to be here.  MY JUSTICE is not slack concerning the opposition.  You will see great pain, on one hand, but great GLORY in and through you.  The dark gets darker but MY LIGHT SHINES BRIGHTER IN YOU.

Do not be moved by the fear tactics of the Gestapo state that is building it’s nest in this nation.  I know how to deal with renegade eagles.  I know how to right injustice and I have a peace to give you that will get you through any situation.  Many are so vulnerable because they are already drugged with antidepressants and anti anxiety drugs because they hardly can handle the load they are already carrying.  Many of you will be like life-rafts, throwing out life jackets to those who are in darkness.  Some of you have 5 you will save, some have 50, some have 100, some will save 1000’s.  Some will rescue millions through the gospel.  But help will be both physical and spiritual in this hour, for famine comes on the winds of war.

Economic sanctions and stiff penalties for those who owe money will be overwhelming to many.  Where is your trust beloveds?  Is it in your own ability to survive, or is it in ME?  Will you TRUST FULLY in ME, or try to find the easy-out?  Have you even asked what your role will be?  It is necessary to come aside with ME if you want to get MY instructions.  Be close to ME, and I will lead you hour by hour, and moment by moment in some cases.  But do come close and stay in a place of intimacy if you want to carry out My will for your life.  I AM YOUR SUSTENANCE.  I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE.  I AM YOUR SOURCE FOR ALL YOU NEED SO COME. BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD.  Trust in ME for I am your HOPE.”

1 Thessalonians 5:1-10 NKJV,

“The Day of the Lord But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you.  2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.  3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman.  And they shall not escape.  4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.  5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day.  We are not of the night nor of darkness.  6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.  7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.  8 But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.  9 For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,  10 who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.”

Sudden Destruction — 1 Comment

  1. Job 5:17-24

    Amplified Bible (AMP)

    17 Happy and fortunate is the man whom God reproves; so do not despise or reject the correction of the Almighty [subjecting you to trial and suffering].

    18 For He wounds, but He binds up; He smites, but His hands heal.

    19 He will rescue you in six troubles; in seven nothing that is evil [for you] will touch you.

    20 In famine He will redeem you from death, and in war from the power of the sword.

    21 You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, neither shall you be afraid of destruction when it comes.

    22 At destruction and famine you shall laugh, neither shall you be afraid of the living creatures of the earth.

    23 For you shall be in league with the stones of the field, and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you.

    24 And you shall know that your tent shall be in peace, and you shall visit your fold and your dwelling and miss nothing [from them].
