“You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Galatians 5:12-14.
The Spirit of the LORD showed me the Statue of Liberty as it stands in the harbor.
As I watched, the statue slowly began to fall to one side. But a group of people stood off to its side attempting to prop it up.
At first I thought that this group was just ordinary people, but the more I looked at them, I noticed that they also were formed very much like a statue as well.
Their resemblance was depicted as a group of soldiers who held the American flag from a war memorial.
But try as they could, this group of soldiers couldn’t prop up the Statue of Liberty. Slowly, the statue began to fall and then it sank into the harbor.
This land that once was the home of the brave and the land of the free will have entered a time when your freedoms will be gone.
For you have taken advantage of the things that have been given to you. You have squandered your inheritance.
The time has come for the collapse of those things that had once given you freedoms.
What would happen to a land that had once known many freedoms?
What would become of a place where children couldn’t even play with their friends?
Will you stay huddled in your homes safely tucked away?
I tell you that you cannot go backwards. For the past is gone, and with it the bygone era of a time long forgotten.
The following are two similar words from 2010 and 2003.
Your Statue of Liberty Will Fall!
July 7, 2010
“You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Galatians. 5:12-14.
“Peace I say to you, not the peace of this world, but I give you a peace that passes all understanding.
Why must you seek the peace of this world? For it is fleeting and has no substance.”
The spirit of the LORD showed me a vision of the Statue of Liberty. She was standing erect as she does, but then she was waving a piece of cloth in her hand, as if motioning something. Then she fell to the ground.
“I tell you that peace will not be found in the world around you. For you have certain freedoms now that are evident in your country now.
But the time is coming when that statue that stands for freedom will fall.
For it has stood in that place for many years, but because you have pursued after other things, because you have not washed your hands of the bloodshed and the violence, your freedoms will be taken away from you.
For your nation is filled with the sounds of crying children. Your nation is filled with violence in the streets.
Your nation is filled with corruption at the highest level. I tell you that you have not made yourselves clean in my blood.
You have not washed the stain of sins from your hands. You stand erect as a nation poised and proud of your achievements. You have excelled in many areas.
You are doing amazing things in the area of science and research. You are working in your laboratories at the most minute level, but your moral depravity has reached a level that far exceeds any of these.
There is still time, but it is swiftly running out. That statue that once stood for freedom has now pronounced a freedom that is slowly dying to you.
You cannot erect a new one. For what is seen in the natural will not displace what is seen in the spiritual.”
He told me that this word needs to be spoken and shared.
He said that, “Your sons and daughters will not have the same freedoms that we now share.”
Take Stock of the Freedoms That You Now Have!
December 13, 2003.
“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come,” Matthew 24:9-14.
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery,” Galatians 5:1.
“From the north my winds will blow upon the land. They will blow a wind of urgency. There is an “unsettling” in the air.
For I warn you, My People, for the new year will bring a need for added strength and resilience.
For you will be tested in ways that you know not. The enemy is pulling out all of his armies to battle against the heavenly hosts.
He knows those weak areas. But I tell you, if you have all of my armor on then you will not fall prey to his devices. His strength is only what you allow him to do.”
I then saw a strange thing. The LORD showed me a scene of a statue, and the more I looked at I noticed that it was the Statue of Liberty.
But now instead of it standing erect and tall, it was falling.
It was falling to the ground because people were pushing it over. I saw it fall to the ground and land in the water below and as it fell, parts of it came crashing down into smaller fragments or pieces.
People were then looting parts of it and carrying it off. Then the scene faded.
“I tell you that many of the things that you will be tested with have to do with your freedoms.
You have enjoyed many freedoms in this country, but don’t take them for granted.
I have told you in my word that a time would come when these things would happen.
I tell you that that day is fast approaching. So, take stock of the freedoms that you now have. Thus would say the Spirit of the LORD.”
