“The Whirlwind Called 2012 Revisited”
A Shaking In the Earth, Shifting In My Pople,
And Re-Positioning For The Kingdom’s Sake!!
The Lord has instructed me to bring out this vision from 2012. He said that for many of you it will show you where you are in this process and for others that it has been happening every since and for others it has only begun. He said this started in 2012 and is still in process. After I spoke this word God told me that there would be signs. The signs were the great amount of Tornado’s that happened that year all in one day and many, many that year…
The Whirlwind: Spoken at “Times Of Refreshing” February 10th, 2012 through Jo Ellen Stevens ..Revised
I had a vision a little while ago of a Tornado… It was picking people up and taking them to different locations and flinging them to new ones! It was spinning really fast! All I can say is some people are getting ready to change positions and locations. It may be a new church or a new city or new Job description. Someone needed to hear this, because you think you have to make a choice, but suddenly you are going to be there and you won’t know how it happened so quickly! Glory to God! Get ready for sudden change! It may seem like a crazy ride at first and even a bit scary but it will be where the Lord wants you when you land and the dust clears! People will be where God has been wanting you all along but it will be the place that you have been called to since you were born!
I believe God is getting ready to very quickly and suddenly bring a huge change and an awakening that will be caused by a shaking. I believe this whirlwind called 2012 will suck up many unawares and many that have been warned! This is the year that the Lord alone will be exalted, and God will reposition His people and then position them but none will go unaffected by this whirlwind.
A Whirlwind is: something happening very quickly or changing swiftly happening in a rapid succession of events…. Spinning rapidly around a column of low pressure.
Now this column of low pressure in the middle is going to be where those that God is about to reposition are going to end up and it hurts going in because of the debris of their past lives and the lives of others connected to them will be tangled up in this whirlwind. It hurts on the way out because you are coming out of the comfort of the eye of the storm and you are leaving what has become familiar and comfortable to you and this is going to hurt for a bit. There are a few purposes in this whirlwind. Some will seem bad at the time but it is for the purpose of getting you from one place to another very quickly! If you will hear this and know that God is doing a work you will have peace in the midst of this Storm and it will bring you to an expected end….
1. This whirlwind called 2012 will cause things to be torn down to it’s foundation… I had a vision in prayer group one night about a church. The floor began to shake and come apart God is in the process of shaking foundations!
“Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire. Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares” Hebrews 12:26-13:2.
God is a consuming fire and in the middle of this shaking He is getting rid of the impurities that are holding His people back from walking in the fullness of all that He has called them to do.
“Many would not go where I am going to take them, but have sought fame in the church and notoriety instead of the place that I have been actually preparing them for.. I have a people that are in my heart for you to go to and I am the God that walks in the the dark places of the Earth to seek those that are hurting, the lonely, and the castaways, the downtrodden, the drug addicted, the abused and hurting in their minds from what they have been through. You would go to those that would promote you, but I am not there, so I am going to allow my people to be touched by the feelings of their infirmities so that they may have a heart for them! Some of you have already been through this “refiners fire” and have withstood it and now I have or will re-position you to those whom I am sending you to.”
The foundations that will be shaken will be first the Church because this is where I have to start so that when the world begins to shake (and it is shaking) will have this place of refuge. My people are being re-positioned to be the “little sanctuaries” for the world to run into! The Government is being Shaken and we are seeing this. Things are beginning to take place! Nations are shaking! The dictators are being overturned in many nations and anarchy is reining in the streets! People open your eyes! Things are being Shaken all around but the Lord is saying:
”Know this it is in answer to the prayers of my Saints that have cried out to me. The bowls of the prayers of the Saints are being poured out! In this process I will divide the wheat and the tares and I am asking now as Joshua ‘Who is on the Lord’s side?’”
We are to let brotherly Love be our first priority next to Loving God. The only thing that will matter in the days ahead will be your relationship with God and, your relationship with others! God is saying “get your relationships in correct priority!”
“Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ” 2 Peter 1:10.
This will be a time of great Angelic visitation to help those that are carrying out His word! So know that your help is there with you and that some of you will be being tested even by the Angels to see if you are one that will be used by God to minister to the downtrodden. Be careful these people may be angels you are helping or rejecting.
2. A whirlwind sucks up things that are materialistic and blows them away.. Through this wind some of our materialism is getting shaken out of the way through this whirlwind called 2012… Things that can and should be shaken out of us will and God alone will be sought out because he is getting ready to be our only source and only wisdom, and the people that will turn to Him through this, and lay there head on his breast, and listen to his heart and, resound his heart will be ready to be repositioned for what God is getting ready to do after the dust settles.
3. Some people get left behind when a whirlwind hits…
“When your fear comes as desolation, and your destruction comes as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish comes upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoever hearkens unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil” Proverbs 1:27-33.
If you have been a hearer and not a doer of the word you will not be on the rock when the winds blow and the earth and the storms come. You will be shaken! If you will not heed and harden your heart and especially if you are standing in the way of God’s kingdom coming in the earth. For example if you have known to do right and do not do it and you are in the way of others doing their part in the work of God you may find yourself on the outside looking in.. You may even go to heaven, but there is a time that you could be removed to keep you from getting in God’s way! He is a very patient God,but we are in a time when God is removing distractions from his people. Many have “stood in the way” of people serving or doing a great work for many others. These people’s lives are at stake or their souls and if we will be so self absorbed that we stop a person from getting to these then sometimes God has to move you even if it is on to heaven! I know this sounds harsh, but truly you may be in heaven and it may save many others lives! I would rather God get glory out of me another way than having to be removed! God loves people this much! Though it will hurt his heart to have to bring this correction.
Nabal was a man that wouldn’t help David and even tried to stop what David was doing, but his wife Abigail went behind Nabal’s back and took food to David and His men. The word says that because of this Nabal took sick and became like stone and in ten days he died. You see if we do not become a part of what God is doing and become a hindrance, we first get a stony heart and then the works of the flesh which are all rooted in selfishness works death. Many have died and I have seen this in my 30 years walking with the Lord. You see Abigail was taken as David’s wife ,because she recognized the anointing on David and was willing to further the cause! Whoa! I pray people will not only get this ,but truly heed it! I am only a messenger in this. God forbid that this is the case of anyone reading this. I truly pray it isn’t.
“Say to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe unto the wicked! It shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him” Isaiah 3:10-11.
5. People wake up when a whirlwind comes, and they either come to action, or start looting! Your true nature comes out in this whirlwind! Whatever you have laid up in your heart will come forth in a crisis! This is going to be an awakening in the earth and it will wake us out of our slumber and many men will call out on God and say “what must I do to be saved?” So will you be prepared to give them Jesus or will you hide in a storm shelter? There is only one storm shelter in this and it is the secret place of the most high! Psalms 91.
Matthew 12:34-35 “O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” Whatever you’ve stored up will come out, “Is your wick trimmed and your oil full or will you be wandering around looking for it when It happens.” A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. Lay up the word in your heart right now! during a crisis you will show what you are made of. You aren’t going to have time when things start coming apart to learn the 91st Psalm or start praising then. You will curse if you do not learn to praise Him now during the bad times.
6. People are translated to new places so that they can be strategically positioned to be where God wants them when this suddenly happens. Some people are getting ready to be translated be it in this storm! You have been preparing your self by listening to God and worshiping Him faithfully and filling yourself up with the word! You have been hidden away for such a time as this and now God through the whirlwind is going to give you a platform and send you to a people! That is why all of what is happening is happening to you! You are getting ready to be the Isaiah 60 church!
Isaiah 60:1-2, “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. Isaiah For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.”
God is re-positioning you to new places in the natural and the spiritual, “Now run with the vision that I have given you in this hour” says the Lord “Run with it, for I am making all things new and shaking things and taking people out of your life and placing others in and moving you to new locations for such a time as this!”
“When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning. And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence” Isaiah 4:4-5.
Get ready God is about to suddenly position you after the whirlwind into a place where you will be positioned for the great harvest to come!
