The Whirlwind Called 2012

“The Whirlwind Called 2012” Shaking In the Earth – Shifting In My People, And Re-Positioning For The Kingdom’s Sake!!


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.  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 awaking that will be caused by a shaking.

I believe this “Whirlwind called 2012” will suck up into it.

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 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 are 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 that are going to happen.

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.


This “Whirlwind called 2012” will cause things to be torn down to its 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 God 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 where 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 who walks in 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 refiner’s 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, 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.

Riots are beginning to begin in this precursor called Occupy Wall Street.

John Paul Jackson talked about a “Robin Hood mentality” that thinks that they are entitled to others wealth that they have made lawfully and with a lot of work. 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:2 Pet 1:11 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.


A whirlwind sucks up thing 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 be 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.


Some people get left behind when a whirlwind hits.

“When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh 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 whoso hearkeneth 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 on the Earth.

For example, 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 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 tan 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.

But 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 ye 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.


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!  Psalm 91.

“O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 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 bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things,”   Matthew 12:34-35.     

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.


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 or before.

You have been preparing yourself 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!!”

“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee, 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,”   Isaiah  60:1-2.

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 defense,”   Isaiah 4:4-5.

The Whirlwind Called 2012 — 2 Comments

  1. Acts 8:26-40
    New Living Translation (NLT)
    26 As for Philip, an angel of the Lord said to him, “Go south[a] down the desert road that runs from Jerusalem to Gaza.” 27 So he started out, and he met the treasurer of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under the Kandake, the queen of Ethiopia. The eunuch had gone to Jerusalem to worship, 28 and he was now returning. Seated in his carriage, he was reading aloud from the book of the prophet Isaiah.
    29 The Holy Spirit said to Philip, “Go over and walk along beside the carriage.”
    30 Philip ran over and heard the man reading from the prophet Isaiah. Philip asked, “Do you understand what you are reading?”
    31 The man replied, “How can I, unless someone instructs me?” And he urged Philip to come up into the carriage and sit with him.
    32 The passage of Scripture he had been reading was this:
    “He was led like a sheep to the slaughter.
    And as a lamb is silent before the shearers,
    he did not open his mouth.
    33 He was humiliated and received no justice.
    Who can speak of his descendants?
    For his life was taken from the earth.”[b]
    34 The eunuch asked Philip, “Tell me, was the prophet talking about himself or someone else?” 35 So beginning with this same Scripture, Philip told him the Good News about Jesus.
    36 As they rode along, they came to some water, and the eunuch said, “Look! There’s some water! Why can’t I be baptized?”[c] 38 He ordered the carriage to stop, and they went down into the water, and Philip baptized him.
    39 When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord snatched Philip away. The eunuch never saw him again but went on his way rejoicing. 40 Meanwhile, Philip found himself farther north at the town of Azotus. He preached the Good News there and in every town along the way until he came to Caesarea.

  2. At the end of 2012 I gathered three or four prophetic words that were quickened to me from various sources that were tucked away as I knew they were significant for 2013.  Each of them spoke what this post did…sudden change. In thinking pack to these posts, in my minds eye I see a 90′ angle and knew that the change would require a severe change of direction and not a casual change.

    On March 14, that change came and within 24 hours I was no longer employed by a Christian employer I had worked for for 12 years as a drug and alcohol counselor. It was a position which God had richly blessed all concerned, and we’d seen souls saved and hundreds touched with increased blessing over the years as the young owners began to seriously seek the Lord.

    Yet the change came through which I would call “ungodly circumstances.”  And as I sought the Lord, I knew it was time to “retire” and that the circumstances that had been detailed in those saved prophetic words were now Kairos…they were NOW.  One of the things in those words was that the “quick decision” would baffle the enemy and at the same time prepare the way for the whole new direction that the Lord was leading…and that this was the only way that I could move into that new direction.  So even seeing one of the ugliest displays of demonic power on a coworker and then upon my Christian boss, I knew that this was the Kairos time..that God had prepared me for.  So within 24 hours I had literally cleaned out my office and turned my keys in and told my clients I was retiring that day. I rode a wave of victory in the midst of something that had been black and uglier than anything I had personally experienced for years.  Even my boss was totally unaware of what he had been caught up in, which was a black cloud of demonic force. But what I was privileged to see, what that MY GOD WAS IN CONTROL and HE was making a change in my life and the direction of what He was doing.

    Since March I have been on a whirlwind of change which has propelled me into a time of intimacy with Him unlike anything I have known before, but which I know is just the beginning of what God has in this period of time. Change continues in every area of my life and it makes no difference “what force” the Lord uses to bring about the change because HE IS LORD and I follow after Him and am not subject to the whims of the enemy!! For I serve the Risen Lord.

    Thanks for sharing this post.
