Lately I have been much ado about nothing.
I have watched has the world falls further in decay and pray that the Lord's will be done here in this place. But, I know that where God is there to is Satan. I wonder, how many of us come under confusion in this hour.
I have, again, fallen under persecution, from the church. Which causes me to ponder my walk with God.
By walking in my gifts that the Lord has given me, I am again, ousted from the church. Because one does not understand a gift does not make it from Satan. So, I ask myself, am I out of line with God. Am I deceived by Satan and am serving him instead of the Living God.
So, in the eyes of the church I follow another besides Jesus. I am far from my redeemer.
My husband reminds me that the proof of walking with God is in the fruit of our labor. I have seen many blessed by God using me. But, if God is the great deceiver, than maybe those blessings are nothing more than the power of suggestion.
If I sound confused, I am. I know....Satan if the author of confusion. But, I must thing this through...my salvation is my concern.
Tired of leaving churches, my next move will be to either find another or stop going all together. I am not persecuted by my brothers and sisters in Christ, only by their spiritual head...the pastor. I am seen as dangerous by those in authority.
So, I ponder. Am I right in the eyes of God. Have I stepped over that spiritual line between God and darkness. Where am I...what am I in God's eyes? If He made me this way then He knew what lied ahead of me in the church. Where does he want me? It must not be going to church.
I would suppose that God would not want me to isolate..but, his leaders rebuke me and send me on my way. Oh, I could stay at the church I am at now, but, I would not be able to speak truth nor pray for the sick. I would be silenced.
I still have my small group, but that is through the church that is silencing me. They will tell those who attend, that go to the church, to stop going. That is just a small percentage of those who come, but it is still a call to silence me.
So, again I ponder. What do I do? Do I close my small group...Do I find another church....Do I isolate and keep silent? I do not have the answer as of yet. I, truly, have not asked God this question yet. Maybe, I do not want to know the answer.
I am a friend of God and I hope He is my friend. I pray that I am in line with the Holy of Holies.

A few weeks back, I wrote a post called "IT IS SO". In this post I shared what God had shown me. He showed me what it would be like, hear on this earth, in the next few months. It would be like when God left Christ at the cross and Christ said "My God, My God, why have you forsaken me."
Well, I am mot one to look for the Biblical truth behind what God says to me. I just believe it to be so. But, for many this is the way to proof of the truth.
I have a young man whom I mentor. He accepts what God tells me as truth, but always heads to the Bible for confirmation. Many have rebuked what I have relayed on this word, so my young friends truth are important.
God will take out His spirit from the land.
2 Thessalonians 2:7 (Amplified Bible) For the mystery of lawlessness (that hidden principle of rebellion against constituted authority) is already at work in the world, [but it is] restrained only until he who restrains is taken out of the way.
Many say this can not be, because the Spirit lives within us. Even though it is here in black and white they refuse to listen. So, this last weekend, I again, was at the same location as the last retreat. And, again, I placed myself away from the camp at 5 am, in the rain and talked with God.
He told me that He does not take the Spirit from us but, from the land. Do people not understand that the Spirit can be in the land as easy as He can be in us. Without the Spirit in the land, lawlessness will be out of control.
Amos 8: 11-12 Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord God, when I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but [a famine] for hearing the words of the Lord. And [the people] shall wander from sea to sea and from the north even to the east; they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord [inquiring for and requiring it as one requires food], but shall not find it.
I hope that for all whom doubt what God has said to me, will now believe. Prepare for the Lord comes.
While I was sitting talking to the Lord this weekend, I had a bit of trouble. I had no questions for Him. I just sat there and waited for Him to speak. Thoughts would come to my head and then an answer. I said out loud. "Am I talking to myself?" It was different than our usual conversation. I left a little in doubt that I was hearing from God. Then He confirmed what I was hearing.
My mind was mostly concerned with our farm. Was I doing the right thing by getting it ready for people to run to when things got bad. These are the things that God said to me.
"Calamity will pour out like rain, but you will be refreshed knowing that I am returning."
"Find joy in all things".
Then I started to wonder and ask questions.
"Lord, how will I know you?"
He answered, "You will find me in the rocks, in the trees, in the people."
So, I asked a question that I have pondered for a while. I had been taken away into two visions at two different times that were similar. One was my own execution. The other, my young friends execution. So, I asked, are these truth.
He answered. "There are two paths. One is yours and one is mine. Stay out of the city."
Not sure if I was manipulating the conversation, I went back to the lodge and opened my Bible. It opened to Isaiah 26:3-4 and then He told me to read verse 20.
Isaiah 26:3-4 (Amplified Bible) You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages].
Isaiah 26:20 (Amplified Bible) Come, my people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the [Lord's] wrath is past.
My own Biblical confirmation. Thank you God.

So, I have been struggling, a little bit, this last week.
I have been sick. Started with a sore throat and progressively got worse. Then Sunday, I realized, that I had pneumonia. Stayed home from church and made plans to go the the doctor on Monday.
By Monday morning, I was in pretty bad shape. So, my husband stayed home with me and I called the doctor. My doctor was on vacation. The office called me back and told me that another doctor would see me. I was more than a little grateful.
The doctor had x-rays done and sure enough...pneumonia. He gave me some of those super antibiotics. And sent me on my way. Had the prescription filled. I was in such a hurry to get this medicine in me, I took the pill in the car.
I have had pneumonia many times and know that when that first pill takes effect, I will not be in any more pain. So, I was excited to swallow that first pill.
A half an hour later...My head is getting hot. Then hives. Huge hives. I called the pharmacy and was told "GET TO THE HOSPITAL QUICK AND GET A SHOT". Well, ok. So, off we went.
Now, I have a lot of allergies. Life has been weird to me in this area. I can be allergic to something and then not allergic to it another. I coded on iodine years ago. Anyway...I am pretty could at telling how I am doing. So, I sat in the hospital parking lot for a while. Not wanting to waste theirs nor my time. But, my husband was more incident. He said he would not be able to rest for fear I would stop breathing. So, I gave in and went inside.
Now, I am a terror in a hospital. I figure they work for me and I have a big say in what they do and do not do. I am allergic to the preservatives in injectable drugs. NO SHOTS. Which I kinda like...because I hate shots.
After a wait, I was taken care of by pills and given new antibiotics for my lungs and treatment for the allergic reaction.
Not my best day. But, God is good. As I look back on it, I love to watch God's hand at work and how He orchestrates our entire day.
NO SATAN YOU CAN NOT KILL ME.
I have an ordained time to die and God knows when that is and your schemes will not hold up. When I am done...then I am done.
I love my God and I love to watch Satan's armor get dented now and then by his inept attempts at destruction.

I told someone, that I did not have much to write about lately, because not many want to hear that times is short.
I know that it has been said over and over again that the end is coming. But, things were never in place like they are now.
God has given me and some friends vision of our future and all have felt the pain of that. I had an occasion to talk to God about my feelings and His response was short.
I had been working on our farm. God has called us back to the farm to prepare for the things to come. I decided to take a break and went down to the pond to pray. My new dog went with me. He is an Australian Shepard. He will be used for herding. He came into my life quite suddenly. One year old and full of life. He never rests.
While sitting at the pond, I told God, "I do not want this." I then began to grieve what my vision had shown me. My dog came to me and showed me compassion. I was shocked. He is usually totally out of control.
When he came to me, I heard God say..."I gave you your dog as a gift."
"Well, then, he is the perfect dog." I said to God.
Then God surprised me. He told me..."Grieve now...You will not have time later."
Wow, what a shock. I wept a bit more, then headed back to the house.
I found a friend taking a break. He told me that while he was tilling the garden, he had begun to weep over what is to come. He then said that God had told him to "grieve now, because he would not have time later"
I have wondered if we were having the same talk with God at the same time.
So, we both grieved and then we went to work. My grief is over and now I will walk in joy. The joy of knowing that everything is planned by God and His plans are perfect.
I will try to write more often and try to be uplifting.

This weekend my question was..."What will it be like in the world in the next few months".
Now, since God's timing is not our timing, I am hoping and praying that His answer is not in the next few months. His answer caused me great fear and trembling.
I had gone out the night we arrived, with a group of people, to a place at the retreat where a cross stands on top of a hill overlooking a valley and river. It was late at night and the stars we shining. The darkness of the place let one see the multitude of stars and many spoke of God's creation.
In the morning, I went back out to the cross at six in the morning. Alone, I spoke to God. We sat together for a while and He did not speak to me. I concentrated on my breathing while I listened for an answer to my question. None came.
For most of the day, I looked for a dictionary. I have found that many times when God speaks the answer is in the definition. No one had a dictionary...so I continued with my day.
There where classes that I attended. Very basis classes om Christian life, but I felt I needed to get back to the simplicity of God. In one class, I opened my Bil be to Joel. I thought, I do not really want to read Joel, so I turned to James. Next, thing I know, I am back at Joel. So, I began to read. While I was reading the Lord told me that this, the content of the book is the United States now. I grew uncomfortable. I asked, "Who is the nation that has invaded us." He told me "gluttony" and "materialism". I read the book and thought about His return.
When the reader got to "My Father, why have you forsaken me", it felt as if the oxygen had been sucked out of my body. My response was silent, but I wanted to wail. I could feel the pain of the Holy Spirit. I wanted to breath and I wanted to scream. Then I heard the answer to my question.
"This is how it will be." Just has the Lord felt the loss of God, at that moment...we will feel the loss.
When we went back to class, I could not speak, I just cried. The Spirit of the Lord was wailing inside of me for the lost children of God. I could feel the shortness of time and the pain that God feels.
I have recovered physically, but emotionally still grieve as does the Spirit. It is Monday and the pain still so clear. I sat with people Sunday and listened to there talk of weight loss, shopping and other insignificant things and could hardly contain myself. I felt like I had a message that needed to be spoke but, knew that not all could handle the message. So, I shared with a few. Some understood with great trembling, others wanted to argue. I have no need to argue and rest in the Word's of my God.
What is important? What is significant? My relationship with the God of this universe. When I listened to all those around me, I questioned and spoke to God. Feeling the urgency of what He was saying I felt a loss for even those Christians that pay no attention to God's words. He assured me, that He was in charge and He would show me whom to speak to of these things.
So, dear reader, you are one of those to speak to. I have given you the words from the Lord and with that I can rest. I have no need to argue or try to prove what God said...It is so...it is amen and amen.

The Lord has called me an "Dutiful Alarm". So, I again send up an alarm. I asked the Lord, this past Sunday, how we are to prepare for the coming darkness. He answered me with three words "It's about Me."
This prophetic word was sent to me and I now share it with you. It is about "Him" and I obediently sound this alarm.
This is a Maverick Nation
prophecy by Don Franklin
I am He that holds the winds of the Earth in my hand and I hold the future of the nations in my hand, and I will stand and I will raise a standard in this nation, and this nation will become a maverick nation, saith the Lord. It will rebel against the World Order. It will rebel against the hand of the Antichrist. It will rebel against what is coming upon the nations of this planet, and this nation will stand as the very armor bear of God and resist the evil that is coming.
There will be a huge gigantic clash, saith the Lord. Prepare yourself; prepare yourself for battle, saith God. For the days that are coming will be full of conflict and battle, but I will give a peace to those who are upon their knees; you will find the peace of God in the midst of incredible storms upon your knees. Only those that are submitted to God will survive. Those that are ruling and reigning from their knees will be able to stand the flood that is coming in the coming days.
Get to your faces; get to your knees; get to the lowest place you can find. Find favor with God; find grace. Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord; Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord; Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. There is a Noah anointing – a Noah mantle – coming upon the nations for those who will find grace in the eyes of the Lord.
Humble yourself. Go to the back of the feast. Confess your sins. Fall down before the Mighty King of Glory, for he comes to the nations to shake and to tear asunder and to do everything that is within his heart to take care of the things that are displeasing to him. Those heads that are stuck up above the pews will be cut off by the sword of the Lord.
The sword of the Lord is coming through the House of God, through the houses of God and it will take off the heads of everyone who is not upon the carpet remitting, asking for forgiveness for their transgressions, and their sins, and humbling themselves before the Mighty One of the Universe.
Fall down before him and find grace in the eyes of God. Come to the Son. Let remission come to your life. Let confession come to your heart. Let grace of God fall upon you that when you stand, you stand in his righteousness. When you walk, you walk in his footsteps. When you speak, you speak the very words of God.
Find grace in the eyes of the Lord. Seek the Lord while he may be found. There is a time; there is a space. I am still allowing mass repentance across the nations, but there is coming a time when the hearts of those who are enemies of God will be hardened in their conditions and they will not find the salvation of God and they will be sent to their eternal destinies.
So, while grace is upon thee, find the grace of the Lord. Preach the grace of God to the nations. Preach the grace of God to the nations. Preach the grace of God to the nations, that there is still a window, a season and time to find the Almighty, to find the grace of God, to find compassion in the Father's heart, for it is not my will that they should perish. The Holy Spirit will convict you. No one needs to come and tell you your sins. The Holy Ghost will tell you what you've done right or wrong in the eyes of God, in the sight of God.
You will know you have found a deliverance with God, when the peace of God floods your heart and your soul. If you have not peace with God, then come to the altar and let us agree together, saith the Lord. Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as snow. I will wash you white. I will take care of every problem you've ever had if you will simply come and say, "I am in need, my God. I realize I'm a mess; I'm I wreck; I'm in trouble; help me, God! Help me; help me; help me!"
My ear is open to the cry of the Righteous. My heart can be moved with compassion for those who are suffering, even within the Church. Those who are caught in the webs of lies and deceit and sins, repent, saith God. There's time; there's space; there's season to get right with the Almighty and to walk in the white righteousness of his robes and to be received into heaven in glory and power. That is the message that is going to go out to the churches in the coming days.
Repent for the Great One of Glory comes to inspect his bride, to see his church and to bring both rewards in one hand and correction in the other. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we do persuade men to repent.

Years ago, when I first became a Christian, I lived on our farm. I was so excited to find out there truly was a God and was flying high. Then things began to change for me and I began to walk in the supernatural.
At the farm, I began to feel things touching my body. One felt like a finger going down my back another a thump on my head. These things increased to a point where I felt like I would not be able to take it all.
After, a while, I grew in my walk, but these problems at the farm continued. My walk became one of deliverance, inner healings and the prophetic. I hated to go home because of all the demonic torment that was there, but that was my home.
We moved and the torment let up. I would from time to time have problems in my home, but nothing like the farm. I was healed, by Jesus' name, from Lupus and my ministry grew. It was exactly two years.
Now, we are going back to the farm. My husband asked me about the torment at the farm and if I had experienced any thing that intense since. Dear reader, nothing has come close to the torment at the farm.
So, I made a decision. I would go to the farm and redeem the land. I took with me, my husband and a friend who is a prophet. Side note...He will be a contributing writer on this blog in a few weeks.
He and my friend went in and shut the door. Quickly they came out and said the bird was out the window. This amazed me that it happened so fast, but I went on. The house was clean and we took off on other adventures.
Later I began to ponder and remembered something. I had been praying that God would reveal the spirits in the house, so that we would know when it was done and the house was clean. He showed me that the bird leaving was a sign from Him that He had cleaned my house and that nothing was left inside.
Thank you God.
In my walk, at the farm, early in my Christian life, I could not get these things to leave my home. I did not know how to handle them. This weekend when we reclaimed the land, I asked God about this and He said to me "Why do you think I moved you to the city."
I laughed. I understood. There was much for me to learn about the spirit realm and God had sent me to the city for lessons. He brought me many mature Christians who taught me and allowed me to grow the way He wanted me to. They never questioned what God was doing in me nor the gifts, as strange as they may be, in me.
Now, I am going back to the farm, where it all began. A place that God picked out for us. A place of sanctuary. A place, that now, is full of Him and Him alone. A place that He has set aside for His work and pleasure. My Lord, as brought me full circle.

I am sitting in my basement writing...my laptop took a dive. I have never liked being in the basement...not sure why. I suppose, I need to be on top of everything.
I realized last night what little faith I have in God's promise of provision and how materialistic I am.
We found out yesterday, that 2,400 folks will be laid off at my husbands plant. Even with 20 years, my husband, without the help of God, will be laid off.
We have made plans for this event, but the reality hit me last night and I cried.
It certainly will be the end of the world as I have know it.
God has blessed us in every way. We can not sustain this life style on unemployment and disability. We do not live above our means, but we have rental property, a farm and the house we now live in. We have to cut back and take losses.
So. I grieved last night. I do not want to give up the house I live in. It was a gift from God, but I suppose it was for a moment in time. He gave us the farm also and that is were we will be headed. I realized that the farm is a provision from God. It can sustain us with food and income, but it is run down and I, in my late years, do not want to take on the task.
Selfish?? Yes. Materialistic? Yes. Frightened? Yes.
In the last few posts, I have published predictions and prophesies about the United States. I posted them for you, my dear reader, to heed. So, I need to heed them as well. And I need to trust the God of the universe and believe.
This kind of thing certainly takes you back to the basics of our faith. The old song "Trust and Obey" comes to mind. "Cause there's no other way". My faith is small and my trust is small, my hope is small. But, I will hold onto the hem of the Lord's garment and cry out His name. "With out you Lord, I can do nothing".

David Wilkerson wrote 'Set the Trumpet to Thy Mouth' in 1985. The first paragraph of chapter one reads thus.
America is going to be destroyed by fire! Sudden destruction is coming and few will escape. Unexpectedly, and in one hour, a hydrogen holocaust will engulf America -- and this nation will be no more.
It is because America has sinned against the greatest light. Other nations are just as sinful, but none are as flooded with gospel light as ours. God is going to judge America for its violence, its crimes, its backsliding, its murdering of millions of babies, its flaunting of homosexuality and sadomasochism, its corruption, its drunkenness and drug abuse, its form of godliness without power, its lukewarmness toward Christ, its rampant divorce and adultery, its lewd pornography, its child molestations, its cheating, its robbing, its dirty movies, and its occult practices.
In one hour it will all be over. To the natural mind it is insanity to come against a prosperous, powerful nation and cry out, "It's all over! Judgment is at the door! Our days are numbered!" The Church is asleep, the congregations are at ease, and the shepherds slumber. How they will scoff and laugh at this message. Theologians will reject it because they can't fit it into their doctrine. The pillow prophets of peace and prosperity will publicly denounce it.
I no longer care. God has made my face like flint and put steel in my backbone. I am blowing the Lord's trumpet with all my might. Let the whole world and all the church call me crazy, but I must blow the trumpet and awaken God's people. Believe it or not, America is about to be shaken and set aside by swift and horrible judgments. Many other praying believers who have been shut in with God are hearing the very same message - "Judgment is at the door! Prepare, awaken!"
Ever since this message came to me, I have been searching God's Word from cover to cover. No prophecy is valid unless it is positively confirmed by God's holy Word. I discovered in the Word God's pattern of judgment.
He later writes:
"America will not Repent"...."God promised to preserve America only if it turned from its evil....This nation has not repented but has turned its back....I see almighty God even now slowly turning His back on this nation. America is on the verge of committing the unpardonable sin by resisting the Holy Ghost. Soon, there will be repentance only for individuals, but not for the nation."

This is a prophesy from David Wilkerson. He has been prophesying economic ruin for the United States from decades. I will post a few of these prophesies this week. I pray you will read and heed.
David Wilkerson's Economic Vision
Key points to remember about this vision:
1. From the time the first country goes down, you'll have two weeks to get your money out of the bank.
2. America will come through this crisis---there will be a restoration.
3. But the nation will never be like it was before...
4. God is saying: Get our lives straight...Get rid of the idols...Seek the face of God in holiness...
5. God will be a wall of fire about you...And the glory in the midst of you!
It's about to happen---very soon, one nation, and I'm speaking prophetically--if I've ever heard anything from God in my life, I heard it ... Very soon a European or North African or Eastern nation is going to default on its international loan and when that happens, within two weeks, Mexico is going to default. Mexico owes $100 billion ---80% of it to American banks---and here's what is going to happen: about two weeks after the first country goes bankrupt, (we're going to survive that, because most of that (money of the first country) is owed to European banks---German, Swiss and French banks) but a second country is going to go down, probably Argentina or Brazil, and we'll kind of live that down and say: "Well, maybe it's not going to hurt," but two weeks after the first country goes down, Mexico's going to default on $100 billion.
And when the banks open the next day at 9 in the morning, $15 billion an hour is going to be withdrawn from our American banks -they're going to be running our banks---the Arabs---all the Latin American countries, they're going to be running our banks--and before the day is over, the U.S.A is going to have to declare a "bank holiday."
SIX MONTHS OF HORROR:
And we're going into six months of the worst hell America has ever seen---there's going to be chaos---not even the National Guard's going to be able to quiet it down---we're going to have to call out the whole U.S. Army.
Now I've had visions recently, for I've been in New York City and I was in Macy's in a vision, and I saw people walking around stunned because they couldn't get their money out of the bank.
Now I'm going to give you a word of advice, the first country goes bankrupt---I've documented this and I've got it sealed in an envelope, and I'm going to call all my friends and I'm telling you---this is the first time I've said it in a public meeting like this---but the first country that bellies up, you go get every dime you have---church get your money out of the bank--because there's going to be a 'bank holiday' and you won't be able to get a dime for six months. Now, of course, there's going to be -restored, but the nation will never be like it is again.
There's going to be fear like we've never known---judgment at the door. When I was at Macy's Dept. store in a vision and I watched people walking around stunned, they didn't know what to do, they didn't know what was happening; then a bunch of people walked into Macy's and suddenly went wild and began to steal and within an hour everybody---I saw the spirit of everybody in the store---they were robbing and stealing---they raped Macy's and destroyed five floors---Macy's was raped and ruined in a period of an hour or two.
That's just the beginning. Folks it's all in this book (the bible) ---we've been warned and warned and warned---you can't tell me God hasn't warned us. You can't tell me God isn't saying something awesome here tonight in this church...we better get our prayer life straightened up, our lives straightened up, get rid of the idols, as Paul writes, and seeking the face of God in holiness or you're not going to be ready for what's coming. God's warning, get ready and you'll not fear these things that come onto you and you'll start rejoicing, you'll not be afraid because your hands will be clean. You've been praying and God's building a wall of fire around you to keep you."
We'd like to teach you a song about God's protection. It goes like this.: "There's a wall of fire around me...There's a wall of fire between my soul and the enemy. There's a wall of fire that you can't see...Between my soul and the enemy. There's a wall of fire around me. May it be so with us all..

My husband and I are waiting for layoffs. The last time there were layoffs my husband was the next in line to be laid off for a year but, it never happened. We prayed a lot that year and God blessed us.
This time, well...we will see.
Because of this round of layoffs, my husband and I have been planning what to do about our situation. Not, knowing what to do, I went on a fast to find the answers. Maybe, because God knew I would not get very far in my fast or maybe because He simply wanted things done quickly, He answered me in the first day.
So, simple, one would wonder why I had to go to God for that. I suppose it was so I would be doing His will not mine, which is to stay in my home in the city.
Because of this word from God, we are stepping up our homesteading plans.
But, last night, my small group spoke prophetically over each other. One of the words I got from my son, Kansas Exorcist Society, was that our ministry was here. Meaning in our home in the city. He is new to this gift, but I know that he hears from God, so I needed to take a look at what he was saying.
As, I prayed for this and as I write, I am reminded what a friend, a prophet, said to me yesterday. "Perhaps you home is to be a mission". This is beginning to make perfect since to me.
It has been prophesied that there will be many safe houses in Wichita. That this will be a need in the future. I believe that this house, where I sit now, will continue to be used as a place of ministry and safety. I hear often, that my house is so peaceful and many have run here for safety.
Not sure how all this will look, but I am just trusting the Lord and willing to obey.
I continue to pray that in the days ahead.... The days of dark, that God will be glorified through His people. That no matter what the future holds, we, His people will show His light in a dark and foreboding place.

The post yesterday, on predictions for the United States, got a lot of peoples attention. I am not surprised but, hope that all that have read it see the significances to the end time prophesy of the Bible.
I have been asked many times, where the United States is in the book of Revelation or if the United States is mentioned in the end times. Well, "no", it is not and if you read yesterday's post, you can see why.
So, we could look at this as the United States becomes an undeveloped country, with no power or we could look at it another way.
The Bible states, that all nations come against Israel. Many people say this is impossible. The U.S. would never turn its back on Israel. But, if we did not exist this very thing could happen. Below is a map of the divided U.S. that was published is the Wall Street Journal. It was drawn by Igor Panarin’s a Russian. The map is pure speculation and propaganda for Russia, but it is interesting.
Click to enlarge
Could this kind of thing happen. I believe it could. When a country collapses on itself who rescues them? We have sold so much of ourselves to other countries, I suppose they could come in, without a fight, and take possession.
All speculation, but does hold a touch of truth.
As a Christian, I lean on my faith to see me through these predicted times. I hold to the truth of my faith and the warnings from my God. Knowing that these things are planned out, gives me strength and peace. But, I also, prepare.
I prepare by building my faith and not sitting idly by and watching. My husband and I are preparing the farm for ourselves and family to live on in relative safety. At least it will get us out of the city where I believe it will be horrible.
In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has.
Our world as become more dangerous and more confused. I will not be confused by keeping my eyes on God and will not live in danger because the wise man sees danger and prepares.

I borrowed this information from Channel of Healing. This is some info on Gerald Celente who has written this forecast I have no reason to doubt what he is saying
The United States of America will witness a major economic down turn within the next four years, transforming it from one of the strongest economies in the world to an ‘undeveloped nation”, Gerald Celente, the CEO of Trends Research Institute has forecasted
Celente of the Trends Research Institute who specialises in forecasting about social, economic, consumer and political trends, and had predicted the 1987 stock market crash and the fall of the Soviet Union is now forecasting revolution in America, food riots and tax rebellions - all within four years, while cautioning that putting food on the table will be a more pressing concern than buying Christmas gifts by 2012.
Gerald Celente, the CEO of Trends Research Institute, is renowned for his accuracy in predicting future world and economic events, which will send a chill down your spine considering what he told Fox News this week.
Celente says that by 2012 America will become an undeveloped nation, that there will be a revolution marked by food riots, squatter rebellions, tax revolts and job marches, and that holidays will be more about obtaining food, not gifts.
“We’re going to see the end of the retail Christmas….we’re going to see a fundamental shift take place….putting food on the table is going to be more important that putting gifts under the Christmas tree,” said Celente, adding that the situation would be “worse than the great depression”.
“America’s going to go through a transition the likes of which no one is prepared for,” said Celente, noting that people’s refusal to acknowledge that America was even in a recession highlights how big a problem denial is in being ready for the true scale of the crisis
Celente, who successfully predicted the 1997 Asian Currency Crisis, the subprime mortgage collapse and the massive devaluation of the U.S. dollar, told UPI in November last year that the following year would be known as “The Panic of 2008,” adding that “giants (would) tumble to their deaths,” which is exactly what we have witnessed with the collapse of Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns and others. He also said that the dollar would eventually be devalued by as much as 90 per cent.
The consequence of what we have seen unfold this year would lead to a lowering in living standards, Celente predicted a year ago, which is also being borne out by plummeting retail sales figures.
The prospect of revolution was a concept echoed by a British Ministry of Defence report last year, which predicted that within 30 years, the growing gap between the super rich and the middle class, along with an urban underclass threatening social order would mean, “The world’s middle classes might unite, using access to knowledge, resources and skills to shape transnational processes in their own class interest,” and that, “The middle classes could become a revolutionary class.”
In a separate recent interview, Celente went further on the subject of revolution in America.
“There will be a revolution in this country,” he said. “It’s not going to come yet, but it’s going to come down the line and we’re going to see a third party and this was the catalyst for it: the takeover of Washington, D. C., in broad daylight by Wall Street in this bloodless coup. And it will happen as conditions continue to worsen.”
“The first thing to do is organize with tax revolts. That’s going to be the big one because people can’t afford to pay more school tax, property tax, any kind of tax. You’re going to start seeing those kinds of protests start to develop.”
“It’s going to be very bleak. Very sad. And there is going to be a lot of homeless, the likes of which we have never seen before. Tent cities are already sprouting up around the country and we’re going to see many more.”
“We’re going to start seeing huge areas of vacant real estate and squatters living in them as well. It’s going to be a picture the likes of which Americans are not going to be used to. It’s going to come as a shock and with it, there’s going to be a lot of crime. And the crime is going to be a lot worse than it was before because in the last 1929 Depression, people’s minds weren’t wrecked on all these modern drugs – over-the-counter drugs, or crystal meth or whatever it might be. So, you have a huge underclass of very desperate people with their minds chemically blown beyond anybody’s comprehension.”

The last nine posts were written Saturday. They were all written by individuals that spent eleven hours praying over a child with Cerebral Palsy.
What an amazing time.
So, I thought I would write a summary of what happened and my experiences of that day.
Within the second hour of prayer, we began to see changes in the child. He became more active...trying to get up and speaking clearly.
I watched throughout the day as God moved not only on the child, but on everyone as they prayed.
I saw the desperation on a father as he prayed over his son. His tears flowed freely as he prayed. There were times where his anger would rise up and his prayers became more commanding then pleading. But, he saw and heard God moving and his hope grew.
Five of us stayed with the boy the entire day, while others came in and out of my home taking an hour or more out of their day to pray.
Some had never stepped out in such a way, praying for the sick. God moved on these people and showed them his power. One felt tingling in his hands and heard God's leading on where to touch the child. Another, so very new at Christianity, prayed enclosing the boy with his body, while lifting his voice to the Lord. I was moved by his simplicity of love.
For myself, I heard throughout the day that I should speak to the child's spirit. So, I did and told his father to do the same. Late in the day, a friend came to pray, and I sat down with him. We both hear from God very clearly and have both been doing this for a long time.
God told him to tell the boy's spirit man to rise up. Now, I had confirmation that this is exactly what God was wanting. So, we prayed. As we prayed, the parents sat down with us. The gift of tongues filled the room and soon I was overcome with laughter.
The inappropriateness of this struck me, but this just caused me to laugh harder. The boys father, was reading aloud the Word and when he read that we should be in awe of God, I heard God say, "You people take me far more serious than I do". Now, I am falling apart with laughter.
My, dear friend, who had come to pray, speaks out that we have come to the father as children. Then I heard the boy's father read..."Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete." When he finished this word, God said to me.."You have asked so often....here is your portion of joy".
That did it for me...I fell apart with laughter. My ribs hurt and my mouth became sore. All the time, I tried to keep my prayers going, but found it difficult. I was disruptive to the others but was out of control. The others, however, kept their prayers going, while smiling at me.
Sunday morning, when we all gathered at church, we of course asked about the child. He has had serious intestine problems since birth and today for the first time, he was normal.
We saw God move Saturday. Maybe, not as we would have liked him to move, but He did move. We continue to pray and will discuss, Thursday, fasting and prayer.
We have not given up. We will press in even harder. God loves this child, as to we, and we will see his spirit man rise up and walk.

TODAY ELVEN CHRISTIANS PRAYED FOR Bret's miracle including myself! PRAYING FOR HOPE AND THE POWER OF GOD/HOLY SPIRIT/ THOUGH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST! As we were praying this miracle started to happen, Bret aka my nephew started gaining more control through his body! his speech got better his muscles grew stronger instantly! in the Bible it says, "ask and you shall receive" And have no doubt only faith!
The house was full of the faith and the Holy Spirit. no one had any doubt that God's work would be done, we did this through the soaking prayer. God answered our questions today because we prayed in Jesus' name and the Holy Spirit. the Bible and "facing the giants" quotes, Through God, all things are possible. Also, God can open up doors that no man alone can open and close doors no man alone can close!!
With all this being said, for those of you who don't believe, i really wish you would have been here today to see the MIRACLES that Jesus Christ the only living God worked! you can quote me, seek God and his righteousness and you shall enter into his Kingdom! The closer you get to God the better your life will be! take it from me, i had doubt before but today the Holy Spirit has changed me forever! It says in the Bible to seek his Kingdom all you have to do is ask for His forgiveness, and truly mean it. (repent) And you shall be saved TODAY. nothing is better than God, the Holy Spirit and Christ! Go seek it yourself from the Word of God (the Holy Bible) watch the passion of the Christ, you'll truly see how much love and compassion Jesus has for us! he was not just hung on a cross, he was BEATEN and whipped, slashed open and was crowned with a crown of thorns as drunken romans were mocking him! The Bible says on the 3rd day He will rise from the dead, just as he did! My God is ALIVE!
that being said, I'm now a disciple. I'm a cocaine addict who used to steal from people to get my fix, and now I'm spreading the Gospel truth! If i, an 18 year old can do it, anyone can! I used to drink and drug and now Im only seeking to get drunk in the Spirit of God! Also the Bible says, he's our Shepard, we are his sheep, He doesn't want to lose any of them! Fear no evil but only the power of God.
With all this said, the experience of God has changed my life forever!
If you ever want to know the truth or are ever mad, i'll tell ya, just pick up your Bible and read!
BRET'S UNCLE SHAWN!

I came over to given55's house to pray for a little four year old boy. While I was praying for him the Lord impressed to me in the spirit that this boy has parents that truly love the Lord and are feeding him the Word of God Daily. That excites me, I wish I would have grown up in such a household. This boy who I prayed for was sleeping when I got here and while I prayed his body began to move voluntarily and his hands really began moving and the thing that stood out to me about his hands was that his fingers straightened out flexing back and forth. It's truly amazing once you think about the Holy Spirit and the power of God. It seems like people nowadays just don't realize the power of God or how maneuverable God is or can be through people. I'm just a simple guy that serves God I am not a Medical Doctor and here this boy is doing these things that modern medicine or even doctors can't do for him. While I prayed for him I focused on the little boy's spirit man and spoke to it to rise up within him. And that's when all of the movement began. God is real, face it. Nothing will ever stop the Holy Spirit from ministering except for limitations we set on God through religion or doctrine and/or ignorance. Don't limit God and watch His wonders with Awe. I named this boy, boy wonder because when people see what God ultimately does with him they are going to wonder hard on how real the Lord of Heaven is. I witnessed a miracle right before my eyes watching this child move on his own in ways which modern medicine say are impossible. So I laugh in the face of technology, ha,ha,ha! And I praise God in his Authority and Freedom (& Love):P

Today has been so humble and amazing!
The spirit of the Lord has been upon me several different times.
I'm so thankful for the people God has placed in our life!
without them we would still be walking blind. The Lord has brought us together for reasons so clear, and one of them is true happiness!
... Bret is asleep right now and has been for 30 min or so. He has brought us to our child-like spirit! So happy and giddy! I'm so excited for what God has in store for my son! =)
Posted by Given55 at 5:23 PM
Our prayers today are many. We call to the Lord with our hearts broken and exposed. I look at Brett and see God. I look at Brett and see love. I look at Brett and see hope.
My God, help us to find you in a new way. We need you Lord. You are our strong tower. Our only way to hope.
We seek you in this hour, calling upon all we know to do and yet... we still wait. I feel you move through my home and I see you in the faces of those who pray and yet we wait.
We wait for that moment when you are glorified and Brett rises up and walks. We wait for you Lord. Without you, we are undone, lost and confused. With you.. we are assured and have confidence.
I speak to the heavens, that you alone, oh Lord, command.. and I call for your healing grace to fall. Fall on the child. Heal him through your son. Our lord, Jesus. Bring your mighty arm to comfort and heal. Show us what it is you want from us, because there is not one, among us, who would not give all for this child.
I pray, oh Lord, for mercy. Mercy on Brett.

God is amazing in His ability to pour out His Spirit on His children, not only individually, but collectively. Over and over, in each and every one of us praying for our little miracle boy today, even though we were all praying for complete healing, we saw and felt God Himself whispering, guiding, nudging each of us to pray for specific healing.
While laying my hands on Brett, I felt the need to move my hands to his chest. I quietly touched his tiny chest, waiting... was it his heart? His lungs? Then a picture, almost clinical in detail, emerged of this little boys lungs, clogged and full, hurting, full of bumps and bruises. Feeling a gentle nudge, I simply prayed that God remove whatever was plaguing this boy's lungs, whatever was keeping him from breathing. I could almost pictures God pouring out His power over the boy's lungs and chest, making the lungs fresh and clean and smooth and healthy. The more I realized that God was directing my petitions, the harder I prayed. My prayers moved from his head to his toe, but I kept coming back to his little chest. Not at my direction, but at the Holy Spirit's insistence that I was praying only for Brett's lungs.
I only recently met this amazing young family, so I didn't realize until I asked Brett's momma whether he had lung issues, but this little boy has had so many lung infections and bouts of pneumonia that his lungs are full of scar tissue. The doctor told them that little Brett just can't afford to get pneumonia one more time. How merciful and loving for God to allow us to know why He directed my prayer that direction... we don't always know why we're praying for specific things, so the fact that He let me know why is beautiful.
Thank God that He sends the Spirit to us to direct our prayers. That, in itself, is an amazing miracle! The next person to pray for Brett has already directed their prayers at one specific area on his body, as well... God's plan in action is amazing! I can't wait to see what else our Father has in store for this beautiful little boy.

God spoke to me today while I was praying for a little boy with Cerebral palsy. and Epilepsy. He told me to focus on his hands. I also prayed for his lungs and legs and feet. God also told me that this little boy has a big purpose in this world. God has a plan for all of our lives. We just need to follow Him and have faith in what he does and what he can do. God can heal this little boy, I have faith that he can. It maybe a slow process but it will happen. Through God all things are possible. In the bible it constantly talks about the miracles Jesus performed.. making a blind man see.. a lame man walk. Well if we had as much faith as the people back in that time, we would be seeing miracles like that. We just need to have faith it can happen through Christ.

Well SO far Bret is trying to SIT UP! he is speaking more clearly, and has even said a sentence! "no more barney" He was playing with his barney toy at the time.
He is moving his arms more freely and more accurately.
.... I've come expecting, AND GOD HAS SHOWN UP! Thank you Jesus! i pray for more of your spirit and healing touch!

Praise be to the Lord God on High.
Tomorrow, Saturday, my small group, will be soaking a child in healing prayer.
He is five years old and is tormented with Cerebral Palsy's.
We will begin prayer at 8:30 in the morning and continue prayer till 9:30 Saturday night. As a group we go into prayer expecting the healing power of our God to fall down upon this child and make his body whole.
There is no room for doubt nor restraint of faith. We will walk boldly and with confidence that our God hears our cries and know that He will answer.
Through out the day I will have members of my small group post on this blog their thoughts and prayers.
It will be a supernatural experience.

The young girl below has been found.
She was with a group of satanist. Needless to say, she needs your prayers.
My heart breaks for the confusion and emotional pain that she is in.
The world is in a steady decline and we as Christians need to lift up and pray for our youth.
