“And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: and they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads,” Revelation 22:1-4.
“Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come,” Revelation 18:10.
“There will be times of refreshing for many of my people as they come unto Me in prayer and praise. For there is always a river that you can come to.
There is always a place where you can enter in and sup with Me. For with the ever moving current of the day’s activities, man needs to lay his head down and rest.
There is a deep river that flows from my throne. Before my throne is a sea of glass; and angels are ever moving back and forth there.
For far beyond the canopy of your world lies a heavenly estate where I dwell. For neither darkness nor night can penetrate the walls there.
There are two trees that grow on either side of the river there. Everything is open for all to behold. Neither death, or disease or age is to be counted there.
For I AM He who dwells in eternity. Behold a young child will live out his days there. All are at peace that dwell under the shelter of My wing.
And with righteousness and justice I execute my judgment upon the earth. For I AM a roaring lion, and from the tribe of Judah that seed did spring forth.
And I tell you that those judgments are being poured forth upon the earth for I AM coming back with a sword.
When I was walking upon this earth, I was seen as the gentle shepherd; I was seen as a teacher; I was even seen as a prophet; but few knew Me as the Son of Man.
And now, in these last days, I AM raising up an army of followers. But they are unlike any followers from the past. You may well not recognize them.
For they did not recognize David at first. Much of the church still looks for a Saul, because it is an institution in many ways.
Oh, if you would but worship Me in Spirit and in Truth! Why must you meet together to institute all of your programs?
Do you not know and have you not heard that I AM not looking for an organization but an organism?
But I AM preparing a people for the hours that are ahead. They want no more of man-made programs.
They are knitted together across many miles and countries. Many of them are not learned men from universities; nor have they sat down in the halls of your seminaries.
They are like my original disciples. And they will follow Me wherever I lead them.
But, be prepared for what is coming. A wise man plans for Winter; and the sons of Issachar knew the seasons.
So know the season that you are in. There are many who ponder and plan when I will return.
No man knows that hour, but you know indeed that you are that generation. And beware of what Babylon really is; and be aware of what that city is.
For upon those coastal waters another great destruction is coming. I have said that it would be gone in but an hour. But don’t look to just the eastern coast, but know that many of these events will fall in succession.
For the earth is heaving back and forth, and that great rift will open up in the middle of the United States of America, and the great Mississippi River will flood the plains around it.
Again, be alert and ready for sudden destruction comes. For that city of sinners will surely fall, says the LORD.
And woe to those who live on the western coast for all of the rumblings have been a sign to you. And once again a civil war will return to your land, and the fighting will continue among many.
But with all of these things that are coming, you have a river that you can come to. And you have a heavenly Father who will lead you along the road ahead.”
