There truly are walls that are now being built in our land, and they are not necessarily a physical wall that may or may not be built at our southern border.
Right now there are walls that are being erected in the Spiritual that house our prejudices and opinions with one another.
At this very moment in time, we are gathering stones and building structures that divide each of us.
Some of us erect walls of racial discrimination and prejudice and stone by stone, those walls are thrust up to keep out those of us who are different in terms of race and creed.
There are walls that some erect over the years and these walls overshadow others.
These are the walls that favor only the wealthy and the privileged.
These are the walls that look down upon others who don’t live in luxury or ease.
These are the walls of snobbery and gold-fringed curtains.
And yet there are also others who have erected walls of protection around themselves to keep out the world around them. These walk the sidewalks and roads of the cities with their heads bowed in fear, keeping others from knowing them.
But of course we need walls of protection from those who would attempt to harm us. Some walls are needed and yet others are not, for those were built in fear of what is different and unknown.
Many times the LORD has shown Me various visions and words of prophecy that speak of this great division, and now that division is widening more and more each day.
Now this division is spreading across various camps of Christianity and society.
Now these walls that at first were only seen as mere foundational stones, are rising higher and higher.
Now the stones and bricks have gone above the window frames and soon they will eventually reach the roof and its beams.
Below are some of those prophetic words that the Holy Spirit has spoken to Me over the years. I don’t post all of them, for it would be a very long article.
How Can the Battle Be Won When You Are So Divided?
July 9, 2012
“For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not mere men?” 1 Corinthians 3:4.
The in-fighting with the brethren will continue.
The Spirit of the LORD showed Me a landscape filled with a huge army. All or most were on horseback and had weapons of some sort with them.
A leader in front started forward going and many followed him off to the right hand of My view. They continued traveling on horseback turning back seeing where some of the rest of the army had gone.
Then I saw another band of soldiers who began the same procedure except these traveled off to their left side into the hills around Me.
The LORD then said:
“This is the way that it is going to be. For some of you have decided to follow a certain leader, and because of your political beliefs, many are following you in that direction.
The same is true of the other group; for you have traveled far out into the hills in the other direction.
You do not know that the enemy has caused this dispersion. This has happened all throughout history.
This is how many have been damaged and hurt in battle.
But I say, ‘Who is your commander-in-chief’?
Who is the one that you should follow?
I have said many times that these separations would increase. I have said that the earth would open up because of these things.
For you have put political opinions above your belief in Me. You have used lies and conspiracy theories to support your beliefs.
You are not a United States. Will you be ready when the onslaught comes upon your shores? You say, ‘I follow Apollos and others say, I follow Paul.’
How can the battle be won when you are so divided?”
Are You Oh America Ready for the Days Ahead?
July, 6, 2012
“Are you oh America ready for the days ahead?
Are you comfortable in your homes knowing that you will always be safe?
Are you ready and will you know when that day approaches?
For it will be a day of great calamity. It will be a day of darkness and grief. You think that you have been counted worthy, but you have been held in the balance and found wanting.
The indications of these things are found everywhere. The extreme weather patterns are but one sign to you.
The imminent approach of yet another war is another one to you. You think that because you are great that you will not fall.
I tell you that Babylon the great fell. I tell you that Rome burned to the ground while the great leader Nero played his fiddle.
You say, ‘Would you not spare us this calamity?’ You say, ‘Would you not give us another chance?’
You are as Hosea’s wife. For your whoredom is found on every hill.
Some will flee to the mountains. Some will flee to the deserts. I have instructed some to flee to other lands.
But will you be safe, you ask? Only those who put their faith and trust in Me will find safety under My wings.
For even as Joseph and Mary fled to Egypt to escape Herod’s demand, many will do the same.
You ask, ‘When will these things happen?’ As another season comes and goes, and yet another one is on the horizon, yet then will it begin.
Woe to those who claim that bright and beautiful days are ahead. Woe to those who put their faith in the church.
Am I not the one that you worship? Woe to those who have no foundation in Me. But be glad if you have found your foundation secure.
The hour glass is slowly waning. The five wise virgins have their lamps ready and trimmed. Prepare, says the LORD.
You are standing on the brink oh America. Thus says the Spirit of the LORD.”
Divisions Will Grow Deeper and Deeper
July 1, 2012
“I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them,” Romans 16:17.
“I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our LORD Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought. My brothers and sisters, some from Chloe’s household have informed Me that there are quarrels among you,” 1 Corinthians 1:10-11.
This prophetic word will most likely bring Me a lot of flack. I expect it. I have waited and prayed about this word, but I believe I must release it.
There are newscasters who state the news and don’t editorialize it. I speak what God shows Me even though many at times will not like what they hear, and some will speak against it.
That is OK. The divisions among many believers, is going to grow deeper and deeper.
I’m certain that the enemy rejoices because of this. His ways are to divide and conquer. We don’t all need to agree with each; that is not possible many times; but we can at least listen and find what we share in common with each other as believers.
Now you can start throwing stones at Me…….
“I tell you that Obama is going to be re-elected and many people aren’t going to be happy about it.
The nation will be split right down the middle. For there will be hatred in many extremes.
Many Christians will be opposed to each other. For the stories about him will become so distorted that some will begin his assassination plot.
It is all a plan to divide America. Many think that he is the evil one to come but they have not read their Bibles.”
The LORD showed Me a scene of the White House. I saw the face of Obama by it and then I saw an old-fashioned cannon like what was used during the Civil War.
I saw a soldier beside the cannon carrying a confederate flag, and a map of the United States was shown splitting in half.
It was very much like how the Civil War happened with Union soldiers on one side and Confederate soldiers on the other side.
I had the sense that the division of America will be growing deeper and deeper because of the political arena.
Later on, I was redirected through the Holy Spirit about this word, and He showed Me the White House again and I saw men dressed in Civil War garb again and now they were aiming their guns towards the White House.
The scene changed and now those who were shooting their guns were now riding upon a carousel that typically has painted horses on it.
However, the men with their guns were on their horses carrying their rifles and they were shooting the men in front of them as the carousel went around and around.
Then I saw the enemy himself as he held a large globe with the carousel within it. He was the one who was orchestrating the hatred between the different groups of people.
“For the time table is set. The events will soon play out. Watch and see how America will be divided.
He has taken steps that are not within My Will, but he is still not the evil one who is to come. The evil one is coming out of the east.
I have said that even the elect would be deceived if possible. For because of their opinions and hatred, they will be taken unawares of who is to come.
This division will become so great that even the earth will split open.”
The Great Rift Has Begun
April 21, 2012
“Why do the people follow the politics of a nation rather than Me?
Many are swayed like the wind by conspiracy theories. For I tell you that a great civil war is coming; in fact, it is already on the rise.
Those who would say otherwise are deluded in their thinking. For the great rift has begun. I have said many times before that these things would be seen in the Spiritual first.
For now you will have brother against brother divided over national politics. Your troubles oh America, go much deeper than politics.
For in your hypocrisy you still think that a white man is better than a black man. You are a Pharisaic nation!
I would spew you out of My mouth for your hypocrisy, but I have waited to see if you truly had any compassion.
The great rift has begun. And because of this great rift, the earth will crack open as well.
It will crack open where you least expect it. For people will be hanging on either side of this gulf.
They will scramble to safety, but some will have fallen to no safety. Things are going to get uglier. Divisions will have deepened.
Put your petty political debates aside. Put Me first rather than a candidate. Thus would say the Spirit of the LORD.”
I Tell You That This Coming Fall Is Going to Tear Open a Great Division in the United States
June 11, 2016
“Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and have them put to death. You will be hated by all because of My Name, but the one who endures to the end, he will be saved,” Mark 13:12-13.
“I tell you that this coming fall is going to tear open a great division in the United States.
For with the upcoming election, more and more fights will be breaking out. Entire churches will be divided.
The Capitol building will house a new candidate. But many who thought that this would happen, will be surprised at the outcome.
The time has come for all believers to put aside their differences. The time has come to put away your opinions.
For there will be bloodshed and hatred in the streets. Brother will hate brother. And then the great time that I have spoken of in My word, will occur.
For it is not a time to fear. It is not a time to lose heart. For with the growing darkness there will also be a growing light.
And this nation which was once the home of the free and the land of the brave, will change.
Many people think that a certain person will make your land great again. But I tell you that these things are not going to happen.
My word states that in the last days great trouble will come. It is inevitable; your prayers can’t keep it from happening.
But know that I will strengthen you for these days that are ahead. Know that I will enable you to go through them.
And great exploits will be done in My Name. Many will be freed from the chains that have held them; but a deceiving spirit will also be seen in the land.”
February 5, 2012
“For you are yet carnal: for while there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are you not carnal, and walk as men?” 1 Corinthians 3:3.
“There are many divisions among My People. I would, that you seek what you have in common.
For many of the things that you argue and disagree about are not as important as your fellowship with Me and one another.
You split hairs about when I’m coming back. You argue and discuss things of My Spirit; you dispute over things that don’t matter.
To be sure, you would be wise to be balanced about these things, but you elevate these things above your love for one another.
You are still children in your thinking when you do these things. I tell you, what are the things that you share in common?
Here are things that you should focus upon:
- Do you agree that I arose from the dead?
- Do you believe that I am coming back?
- Do you believe that I have forgiven your sins by My death on the cross?
- Do you believe that I created man in My own image?
- Do you believe that I triumphed over death and the devil?
- Do you believe that the entire scriptures are the word of God?
- Do you believe that My Holy Spirit dwells within you?
Now tell Me, what other issues are more important than these?
What other doctrines or considerations would be elevated above these?
Yes, I AM calling people to higher ground in Me.
Yes, I AM calling you to rise above your complacency, but the enemy has taken the opportunity to divide and conquer.
Let us go onto maturity and no longer be and act like children in our thinking and faith.”
The Great Separation Has Begun
— Is Seen in the Spiritual First and Then in the Natural!
December 29, 2011
“Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The LORD knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the LORD must turn away from wickedness.” 2 Timothy 2:19.
“For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work,” 1 Corinthians 3:11-13.
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand,” Matthew 7:24-26.
This word began with a scene of a rock bridge that looks intact with some people on horses starting to walk across it. However, then the bridge began to cave-in and the entire structure fell into the river below.
“The new year will bring many troubles to My People. Those things that have seemed to be very strong and sturdy will fall, because you have depended upon the things of man rather than Me.
But I AM the Rock of Ages. If you are firmly rooted and grounded in Me then you won’t fall.
My People, many things will fall apart this coming year. Many things in the natural will fall.
There are some of you who are not firmly rooted in Me. The stones of a building are held secure by its foundation. Have you inspected your foundation lately?
Behold…. I tell you that the foundations of this earth will be shaken. For the earth will “crack-open” in places that you think not.
Watch as it separates one section of the United States from another.
(Here I saw the map of the United States where I’ve seen it before with the Mississippi River shown.)
Do you think that the foundations of the earth are secure? I tell you that they are held in the balance only by My hand. For this rift will be seen and it will develop.
It will open up and swallow the earth around it. Those living in this area will be in danger.
You who are secure in your own making must assess your foundation. Please consider My warnings as final. For the great separation has begun.
These things are separated in the Spiritual first and then in the natural. That is all for now.”
A Country and Land Split
November 14, 2012
“Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized into the name of Paul?” 1 Corinthians 1:13.
“This election has brought out many things in people… It has shown where people’s hearts truly are.
What some think is right is truly wrong. For truly, you would know a tree by its fruits.
When you are so quick to judge one, what is the fruit that you have within yourself?
The boat is rocking; the ship of America is shifting back and forth. For in these days a great dissent is happening.
For your entire nation will be reduced to a number of states. For truly, the nation will be split across the country…
The entire nation will be in revolt, but how will they lead, and how will they govern a people who have been split into so many factions?
The nation will be divided in so many ways. Civil unrest will be the norm. Military factions will be spread across the land.
Violence will erupt in the streets. You will see fires and explosions break-out in such cities as Chicago. Phoenix, Arizona will have chaos and dissent.
Woe to those who put their faith in guns and armory. Woe to those who sit in high places.
For you once thought you were the land of the free and the home of the brave.
And when all these things are happening; when the dissent has reached its highest, then your land will come under attack.
But I have been preparing a people for this very hour. They have not listened to the voices of dissent.
They have not given into anger and hatred. But instead, they have clothed themselves with My Spirit. For the land will be changed forever.
But look forward to the new Kingdom. Look towards those walls that have the names of My original twelve tribes. Thus would say the Spirit of the LORD.”
