“They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off. Thy calf, O Samaria, hath cast thee off; mine anger is kindled against them: how long will it be ere they attain to innocency? For from Israel was it also: the workman made it; therefore it is not God: but the calf of Samaria shall be broken in pieces. For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk; the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up,” Hosea 8:4-7.
“This nation will be thrust into a whirlwind, for this is the time for the culmination of all things.
Your king has done as he has pleased, for he cares little about the natural plight of the people. Your people will be thrust into a whirlwind.
Who are those prophets who have sat at my feet? Where are they that have promised such great things to come?
You are not unlike the Hannaniahs of the past. For many have spoken things from their own hearts. Their words are birthed in an allegiance to the king. For many of you have allowed patriotism to be revered rather than to Me.
People will run to and fro looking for answers, and many will wonder about their plight. The one who has promised such great things only thinks of himself. For the pride of life and greed is his mainstay.
You have become the laughing stock of the world; for once you were held in high esteem, but now it is dishonor.
Ruthlessness has become the main order of the day. Where have the Lincolns gone to and where is the man who would honor the poor and the underprivileged?
For you will enter into that time period of the last days when trials and tribulations will come at you from every corner.
The almighty dollar will fail and men and women will grab their breasts in fear, because of what is happening around them. For you have believed a lie, and have trusted in man and not in Me.
But I still have a people who have trusted in Me. I still have ones who have grabbed a hold of My Robe. For many have not followed after the one.
I have a people who have prepared for these days — they know of the time and the hour. They have not prepared with food and water, but they have filled their lamps with oil.
For the books will be opened and the page will be turned. You will see these things come. And then after all of the horrendous things that are coming, you will be with Me.
I will take you through these days, My People. I will not leave you fatherless. My Rod and My Staff they will comfort you. But you must endure unto the end.
I will take you to be with Me, and I will protect you under My Wing. These are the days that have been prophesied about. These are the days that have been spoken about in My Word. Be ready!” sayeth The LORD.
“All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved,” Matthew 24:8-13.
