America, Hear The Cadence of Drums!


Tonight, just about 20 min ago I took out the garbage, and as I was walking to the dumpster in the apartment, the LORD said to me in my mind “Do you hear the cadence of drums – do you remember that?”

For a moment I had to think.  Then I remembered it was a Word I gave in the Church I was going to at the time, the Sunday before 9-11.

I had not published it, as I could not remember it, and it wasn’t recorded.

Most thought I was off the wall, as it came with dynamic delivery under the unction and I could hardly stand as The Spirit of God was overshadowing me so strongly.  The same thing happened as He said this tonight.

He started also talking to me about people coming of late, those whom He had warned me about, in that some would come to try my soul, but He would see me through it.

And true to His word, it was happening.  Young people who are precious souls, but very troubled, and tons of baggage emotionally, etc.

He was saying, when you take someone in and treat them lovingly, even when you are so pressed, and you don’t feel like it, that is love.

When you treat someone with kindness they don’t deserve, that is love.

I knew I was in a retesting time from what He had spoken and what was happening.

Sometimes He does this to show ME how I have changed, or to show me how I haven’t changed enough.  But it is all in His timing and training.

I waited for a friend to get off the computer, then listened for what He might say about that Word in the driveway to the dumpster.

“The enemy comes on the wings of the east wind, with intent to bring tragedy and terror, murder and strife, hopelessness and panic.

But I have come and am coming also on the wings of the wind to bring FREEDOM and LIBERTY to the captives.

I AM coming to destroy the plans of the wicked one and to expose the truth.  I have a greater plan for mankind than to destroy it.

The fullness of what is planned will be muted.  But I will not stop all the plans because of the complacency and apathy over this nation, the violence and murder have increased and the stench of pride has risen to the heavens in defiance of ME.

I tell you to brace yourself and TRUST IN ME ALONE.  For there is no one, and no thing that can save you but ME.  To the LORD alone belong escapes from death!”

“Our God is the God of salvation; And to GOD the LORD belong escapes from death,”    Psalm 68:20 NKJV.

“Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in His mercy, to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine,”   Psalm 33:18-19 NKJV.

“Though the vision tarries, yet I will bring forth life out of death and LIGHT out of darkness.

I have much to say to you about mercy and justice.  I have much to share with you about love for your brothers and sisters in this hour.

You are going to learn what is really important in this hour is relationship and fellowship with ME, and with each other.

You are going to find those who have been deluded and deceived into believing lies in great confusion for what is happening.

Man in his flesh will try to fight with his own strength what can ONLY be fought on his knees.

HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THOSE WHO align themselves with violence and murder.  Have nothing to do with those who walk in prejudice and hatred.

For I AM releasing angels to destroy the hatred, to destroy the fear of man that leads to hatred and competition.

I will release a tsunami of love, remember? 

There will be an unprecedented outpouring of my love and kindness that will supersede all the suspicion and distrust in the true body of Christ.  My People will arise and do great exploits in My Name.

Do not find yourself TAKING SIDES against brothers and sisters.  Even though they want to castigate you and blaspheme your name.

Do not fall into the trap the enemy has set.  And do not fall prey to the vultures of DEPRESSION who are waiting to cause great harm and despair upon the people.

YOU are to be a beacon of hope in a dying world.  You are to be the LIGHT OF THE WORLD.

Make your light to so shine before men that they may come to know My love and My salvation!”

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven,”   Matthew 5:16 NKJV.

“Your work will be in your neighborhoods, in the streets of your cities. 

There will be children abandoned in the days ahead and youth pushed out of homes too early, and unprepared for what comes on this nation, and women abandoned and widowed.

But I have called YOU TO BE A RESTORER of the streets to dwell in.  I have called you to build up the waste places and to bring the message of SALVATION to those in darkness, to loose the bands of wickedness and to proclaim the day of the vengeance of our LORD.

I will cause people to give into your hands the wealth of the nations for the SAKE OF THE KINGDOM.”

“Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Streets to Dwell In,”   Isaiah 58:12 NKJV.

The Gentiles Bless Zion
“Arise, shine; for your light has come!  And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. 2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the LORD will arise over you , and His glory will be seen upon you. 3 The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
4 “Lift up your eyes all around, and see: they all gather together, they come to you; your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be nursed at your side.
5 Then you shall see and become radiant, and your heart shall swell with joy; because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, the wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you. 6 The multitude of camels shall cover your land, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all those from Sheba shall come; they shall bring gold and incense, and they shall proclaim the praises of the LORD. 7 All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to you, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you; They shall ascend with acceptance on My altar, and I will glorify the house of My glory. 8 “Who are these who fly like a cloud, and like doves to their roosts?”   Isaiah 60:1-8 NKJV.

The LORD continued:

“Yes there is the cadence of drums, and there will be many tragedies in the days to come ALL OVER THE WORLD for even the EARTH IS GROANING.

But I WILL sustain you.  I will empower you and give you strength like you have not known, as I AM RESTORING and I AM releasing world wide AWAKENING through MY SPIRIT to bring in a final harvest of souls in the earth.

IT IS as in NOAH’s time, yes, but MY SON HAS COME TO BRING LIFE and to REDEEM the lives of the world for I SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT I GAVE MY ONLY BEGOTTEN SON.

You will see more than you have seen.  You will walk more than you have walked with ME before.

I will uncover mysteries.  I will destroy the knowledge of the learned, and “great minds” of the nations with what I do in you.

Do you feel the wind blowing?  Do you hear a rustle in the trees? Do you hear the new sound coming forth?

Listen for the ROAR OF THE LION. For the LION OF JUDAH will ROAR OVER YOU!

Then I had a vision of a huge lion roaring so loudly, that a wind blew a person’s hair back from the force of it!”

“But you, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the Book until the time of the end.  [Then] many shall run to and fro and search anxiously [through the Book], and knowledge [of God’s purposes as revealed by His prophets] shall be increased and become great,” [Amos 8:12.]   Daniel 12:4 AMP.

“I told many of you I would send you to nations.  I have been preparing many to leave everything behind.  And I have been preparing others for a time in the wilderness.

I have been preparing MANY for large scale ministries that will reach out to he poor and desperate and heal the wounds of this nation.

I have prepared MANY EVANGELISTS, MANY TEACHERS, MANY PROPHETS, MANY APOSTLES, that you would prepare those who now come into the nets – into the harvest in this hour who also will go for US.

Do not let your hearts be in despair over the conditions of the world and this nation.

Do not give into the vultures of depression sent to cause you to give up, and to commit suicide.

MANY WILL because they have been given over to delusion.  But do not allow what you see around you to torment your mind.

The ONLY WAY you will keep your SANITY will be through communion with ME, and to obey ME.”

“For it is written, I will baffle and render useless and destroy the learning of the learned and the philosophy of the philosophers and the cleverness of the clever and the discernment of the discerning; I will frustrate and nullify [them] and bring [them] to nothing.  [Isaiah 29:14.]
20 Where is the wise man (the philosopher)?  Where is the scribe (the scholar)? Where is the investigator (the logician, the debater) of this present time and age? Has not God shown up the nonsense and the folly of this world’s wisdom?
21 For when the world with all its earthly wisdom failed to perceive and recognize and know God by means of its own philosophy, God in His wisdom was pleased through the foolishness of preaching [salvation, procured by Christ and to be had through Him], to save those who believed (who clung to and trusted in and relied on Him),”   1 Corinthians 1:19-21 AMP.

22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools [professing to be smart, they made simpletons of themselves]. 23 And by them the glory and majesty and excellence of the immortal God were exchanged for and represented by images, resembling mortal man and birds and beasts and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their [own] hearts to sexual impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves [abandoning them to the degrading power of sin], 25 because they exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever! Amen (so be it). [Jeremiah 2:11] 26 For this reason God gave them over and abandoned them to vile affections and degrading passions.  For their women exchanged their natural function for an unnatural and abnormal one, 27 and the men also turned from natural relations with women and were set ablaze (burning out, consumed) with lust for one another — men committing shameful acts with men and suffering in their own bodies and personalities the inevitable consequences and penalty of their wrong-doing and going astray, which was [their] fitting retribution. 28 And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome,  29 until they were filled (permeated and saturated) with every kind of unrighteousness, iniquity, grasping and covetous greed, and malice. [They were] full of envy and jealousy, murder, strife, deceit and treachery, ill will and cruel ways. [They were] secret backbiters and gossipers, 30 slanderers, hateful to and hating God, full of insolence, arrogance, [and] boasting; inventors of new forms of evil, disobedient and undutiful to parents. 31 [They were] without understanding, conscienceless and faithless, heartless and loveless [and] merciless. 32 Though they are fully aware of God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them themselves but approve and applaud others who practice them,”   Romans 1:22-32 AMP.
