Posted on 02/21/2008 3:37:57 AM PST by Quix
My energy is not atomic it is Eternal and flowing , Alive ! And Creating , not manufactured .
So as you see things constructed by man realize this ; All elements of the Universe and mankind evolve from My Hand and I AM CREATOR AND GOD ALMIGHTY .
There will be an ATOMIC ANOMALY SOON yet far more reaching will be the effect on man's heart than just an incident or explosion Yet the critical element is not what has been pushed away , vaporized or displaced , but the raining down of My Spirit on mankind shortly after for the spiritual significance shall overshadow the fallout and overwhelm the hearts of the multitudes for it is I LORD GOD ALMIGHTY that shakes the heavens and the earth not mankind !
Psalm 66:3-5 3Say to God, How awesome and fearfully glorious are Your works! Through the greatness of Your power shall Your enemies submit themselves to You [with feigned and reluctant obedience]. 4All the earth shall bow down to You and sing [praises] to You; they shall praise Your name in song. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! 5Come and see the works of God; see how [to save His people He smites their foes; He is] terrible in His doings toward the children of men. Isaiah 17:12-14 12Hark, the uproar of a multitude of peoples! They roar and thunder like the noise of the seas! Ah, the roar of nations! They roar like the roaring of rushing and mighty waters! 13The nations will rush and roar like the rushing and roaring of many waters--but [God] will rebuke them, and they will flee far off and will be chased like chaff on the mountains before the wind, and like rolling thistledown or whirling dust of the stubble before the storm. 14At evening time, behold, terror! And [a]before the morning, they [the terrorizing Assyrians] are not. This is the portion of those who strip us [the Jews] of what belongs to us, and the lot of those who rob us. [Fulfilled in Isa. 37:36.]

I immediately felt a resonance with the document in my spirit.
However, this is only one of many such msgs in recent months. And, I queried a strong believer on ATS who also has had extensive black project jobs . . . I privately asked him when he expected WWIII to start. He said March of this year up through 2011.
Certainly Israel and related dynamics have been heating up and Kosovo is not to be ignored.
However, I wonder if the above doc MAY be speaking of something a bit different. It is plausibly speaking of such conflicts . . . but it possibly may be speaking of something unknown to the science of man.
I just feel a YES! THAT'S TRUE somehow in my inner man on reading the doc. Yet, I don't know specifically or clearly what the specifics of it will turn out to mean.
I also felt prompted to begin this thread as a way for the Charismatic/Pentecostal community to come together to prayerfully ponder and consider such inputs as we may have 1) had personally; 2) observed, experienced in our corporate worship groups; 3) read/come across otherwise.
I believe the only fitting way to do so is in a caucus thread to avoid the fierce naysaying that tends to smother out so many in our own community. However, to maintain that context, we must be careful in how we put things to avoid violating the caucus designation.
The purpose of this thread is to prayerfully discern and share our Holy Spirit fostered sensings about the spiritual and natural world at this critical juncture in time. It is not to attack or malign other organized Christian groups.
The desired focus of this thread is to foster a greater HEADS UP alertness about the near future and to discuss that in a warm, prayerfully pondering family atmosphere, context.
IF YOU have additional 'words' that you feel sufficiently strong about or perhaps merely want to have some shared discernment on--please post them here.

I personally don’t think they will begin until after the Beijing Olympics.
12 Prophetic Signposts for 2008
As I have been waiting on the Holy Spirit throughout the month of January I have been processing in my spirit several prophetic themes. The listing below includes many of the things Holy Spirit has been stirring in my heart as we move into 2008. I also feel that some of what I shared for 2007 is still being carried over into 2008 and has not reached its full development. I encourage you to also read our 2007 article to continue to lay hold of the Father’s heart for this generation of believers and for your life personally. Take some time to meditate and pray over the Key Scriptures included with each prophetic highlight. I pray these words are a blessing to you.
1) God is about to invade His church. Jesus is inspecting His Father’s temple. Some tables are going to be overturned this year. Don’t be dismayed when you see this happen. It is the hand of the Lord. God is refining the inward motives of the heart. Any work done with a selfish, self-seeking motive will not survive the refining fire. Key Scriptures: Mt 21:12; 1 Cor 3:13, 4:5
2) God is calling the church to return to and re-strengthen the foundations of our faith and personal walk with Him and our ministries. A refining fire is coming and anything not built on a foundation of love will not stand the testing. God is inspecting our works. He wants work motivated by first love, not empty activity. Some lamp stands will be removed this year. Anything not built on love will be shaken. Key Scripture: Rev 2:4-5
3) There will be many “love-tests” this year. People will be given opportunities to grow in true Christ-like love. God will allow moments of difficulty and challenge to teach us to walk and live in love. He is taking us deeper into the gospel of the Kingdom, which is to love God with all our hearts and to love people. God is really bringing a revival of true heartfelt love. God wants to invade whole cities and regions. The key that will unlock cities and bring a move of God like the Welsh Revival of 1904 will be a revelation and reality of Kingdom love. Key Scriptures: 1 Pet 4:12-13; Mt 22:36-40
4) New ministries will be birthed this year. There will be another wave of launching ministries. God has been laying foundations and now is the time to take action and step out into the fullness of the call of God. Some “good things” will have to be let go of in order to lay hold of God’s best. It truly will be a season of “new beginnings” for many. Key Scripture: Gen 12:1
5) The apostolic mandate will continue to mature and come into greater manifestation this year as the church is “sent by God” into the marketplace, highways and byways to see the gospel of the Kingdom advance forward. There will be a fresh emphasis on souls, church planting and discipling new believers. We will see a new wave of evangelism released through apostolic order. God is stirring the body to aggressively pursue creative miracles and deliverance. Look for opportunities for God to move outside of church meetings. If you make yourself available He will move in the most unexpected places. Key Scriptures: Luke 14:23; John 1:6-8
6) God will reveal to the church the true prosperity of the Lord. Any prosperity preached with a motive of greed and selfishness will be shaken down so the true prosperity of the Lord can shine forth. Only God knows the motives and intents of the heart. We must be careful not to prematurely judge people or ministries. Let God be the judge. God is refocusing our understanding of biblical prosperity with the truth that we are blessed so we can be a blessing to others and advance the Kingdom of God in the earth. (Remember, prosperity is more than just finances. It also includes divine health, healing, protection, forgiveness, grace, joy, peace, and much more.) God will continue to anoint people with creative business ideas for supernatural wealth to help fund the end-time harvest. Key Scriptures: 2 Cor 9:6-11; Isa 60:11.
7) Foundational truths will be emphasized by the Holy Spirit, including the blood of Christ, the cross of Christ and salvation through repentance of sin. Key Scriptures: Eph 1:7; Col 1:14; Gal 6:14
8) God is causing us to inspect and re-strengthen our foundation so He can bring multiplication and increase. Anything done with a pure motive and built on a foundation of selfless love will see a wonderful multiplication and increase this year. That which has a solid foundation will be multiplied in 2008.
9) God is teaching His people how to operate in dominion from a position of rest. We must know how to use governmental Kingdom authority from a place of resting in Christ’s finished work. Both dominion and rest are being highlighted by the Holy Spirit. This dominion will cause the enemy to be displaced out of the land of our inheritance so that we can not only possess but be multiplied in that land. Key Scriptures: Col 1:13; Josh 6:1-2, 15-16.
10) An apostolic shift of focus is coming into how we view the “church”. God will continue to give us understanding into the practical functions of the apostolic. God is shifting the vision of leaders beyond their own kingdom onto His Kingdom. A baptism of love will cause leaders to understand “the church” is not just their local congregation, but it is the corporate body within that city, nation and world! Greater expressions will be given to the corporate church. God wants leaders and churches to have a heart for one another.
God wants to invade, awake and transform whole regions and cities. Apostolic leaders will be raised up transforming local churches into holy habitations of God’s glory that release the body of Christ into greater fullness and manifestation. Pastors and other five-fold ministries called to the apostolic will continue to shift this year in their vision and function. Some churches will make the transition from “local church” to “regional apostolic centers”. Through the apostolic we will see a greater merging together of the prayer movement, evangelism and church planting. The prayer movement and power movement will come together in a greater way.
11) This will be a year of understanding God’s great grace on many levels. We will hear a lot about grace, faith and love. Key Scriptures: Gal 5:6; 1 Tim 1:14
12) Those with media mantles given in 2007 will see an increase and expansion in the media in 2008. God and His current day move will be seen on both Christian and secular television. God is invading the airwaves with His glory. We will also see the “face” of Christian TV changing.
Whoops, sorry there, Quix. From the title, I thought this was another Obama thread...
A Vision Of An Assassin
February 3, 2008
I saw a Christian leader dressed in a military uniform standing before what appeared to be a military tribunal. He had been charged with committing willful friendly fire, i.e., shooting his own troops. It became appallingly clear as witnesses were called that this man had condemned, slandered, and assassinated anyone he considered a rival among those he had been entrusted to lead and serve.
Next to him as witnesses for the prosecution sat many injured saints anxiously waiting for their day of justice in court. Some were limping, some scarred, and some blinded by this mans venomous tongue. It was clear he had done amazing damage while wearing the garb of a leader and had treated his own brethren as the enemy. As the charges were read, and witnesses called, it became unnervingly clear that the one prosecuting him was none other than Christ himself.
Some of the witnesses against this man demanded that he be put in front of a firing squad to face an army of accusing, shooting tongues more deadly that his own. It was clear he had used his position of trust to injure many. Why? Because he could.
The accuser of the brethren took the stand and bragged about his unfettered access to this mans mouth and he laughed at the damage this accusing, lying man of God had done for him. He then demanded from the judge the right to do to this sinning saint as he chose. After all, by his willful slander and accusations, he had entered into a binding covenant of death with the accuser!
Finally, all rose and stood before the Judge. In military style, the charges were recounted and this slandering leader was accused of using Jesus blood to build his own kingdom, of injuring many in the body of Christ, and of being a traitor, an assassin who killed those he had been charged to care for and nurture. He was a murderer in Gods eyes having shed the blood of his brethren.
He was found guilty on all counts.
Then the strangest thing happened. The prosecutor stood up and offered the accused, now the condemned, a new uniform. This new uniform bore a medical insignia. The prisoner was told that the court wanted to offer him mercy but at a price. He was to be stripped of his present uniform but if he wanted mercy he would have to become a healer in the body. He would have to confess the lies he had told, the damage he had done, and he would be given a special salve to help heal those he had injured. He would yet find mercy only and if he would become merciful.
He responded that the gifts and callings of God are without repentance.
The prosecutor then told him that, while this was true, that verse meant that he would always have a calling from God but he had disqualified himself from that calling. Many are called, but few are chosen was the reply. He was reminded that Judas lost his place and was replaced. The kingdom was also rent from Sauls hand. His place of service was being taken away and given to another.
The Judge told the guilty man he had two choices: mercy, under the condition he would repent and become an agent of mercy, or the disgrace (literally not grace) of a dishonorable discharge. Either way, his reign of terrorism in the body of Christ was at an end.
Let the reader understand.
No sweat Old Warrior.
God’s best to you and your loved ones.
You have any . . . sources with anything interesting regarding the near future?
Intercessors, Ministers and Donkeys
In a vision the Lord showed me a Pack donkey, It was scruffy and moulting and in need of a good grooming and general attention. On its back was its load, it looked lost and disorientated. The place where I saw it was a wilderness and it was very dry.
I began to see the Donkey was fulfilling its calling, but was not taking time out to receive from the hand of its master. It was in a dry wilderness and at risk. So busy he didnt seem to realise that he was in such an unkempt state.
The Lord had earlier drawn my attention to Revelation 3 through a friend. The word began to resound in me as I thought of the Donkey.
Rev 3:17: Because you say, I am rich, and have need of nothing and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked.
Verse 18: I counsel you to buy from me Gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich, and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.
The key words from this passage are:
I counsel you This is a direct instruction from Jesus, Its in red in my bible to alert us to its source.
To buy Gold: It may seem like a cost to your ministry to take more time out to obtain gold from the Lord. But we must.
Gold is an element of heaven, The streets are gold, the crystal sea in front of the throne has the appearance of gold. There’s gold every where. The Lord has got lots of it. He says come buy it from me. Gold Is the Lords presence, put the burden down and pay the price to get the gold!
John Wesley (1703-1791) said; I have so much to do that I spend several hours before the Lord before I am able to do it
Francis De Sales (1567-1622) said; even if you did nothing in your meditation before the Lord, but bring your heart back and place it again in the Lords presence, your time would be very well employed
The Lords invitation to you today is Come, put your load down and spend some time in my presence, buy some Gold from me.
Buy White garments:
White garments are the righteousness of the Lord. We get that by allowing the blood of Jesus to wash us moment by moment.
You cant earn your way to God; the price has already been paid. Its better to put down your load for a few moments and allow the blood to wash over you.
Charles Spurgeon 1834-1892) said; If you long for him, he much more longs for you. No sinner was ever half as eager for Christ as Christ for the sinner; if you are running to Christ, he has already come near you. If you sigh for his presence, that sigh is evidence that he is with you.
The Lords invitation is; Come let me cloth your nakedness, the load of ministry will still be there tomorrow. Better to be a clean little donkey, than an obnoxious smelly little one.
Anoint your eyes that you may see.
Many ministries are operating on principles and programs and running round in never ending circles trying to get the job done. Most started out seeing the purpose of God and being totally excited by it. But now find themselves in a dry and barren place with no excitement or water in sight. Our lives are meant to be filled with supernatural revelation, our ministries driven by supernatural sight.
Psalm 27:4 One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek; That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and seek him in his temple.
No point in running here and there if you cant see your destination and have no idea which way to go.
The Lord says Come put this eye salve on, then you will see your destination as you gaze with fresh eyes upon my beauty
This is a very simple little word and an invitation from the Lord to come and be groomed in the royal stables. As I write I see a field of contented happy donkeys in green pastures and planted by still waters.
Rev 3:20 Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with me.
Its our choice. We can be smelly obnoxious unkempt beasts of burden or we can be groomed beautiful possessions of the Lord. Our ministries will be far more effective if we take counsel from the Lord.
Choose the Lord He will not refuse to guide you and bring you into the fullness of all he has for you. Open the door and have some fellowship with Him. Your works are not your reward, Jesus is!
Few souls understand what God would accomplish in them if they were to abandon themselves unreservedly to Him and if they were to allow His grace to mould them accordingly. Ignatius Loyola.
Are You Ready For The Ride
January 28, 2008
God has shifted to higher gear- Are you ready for the ride?
Vision of a man riding a race car all set to go:
Since the start of this year, this vision has been coming back to me : The picture of a man sitting inside a race car, complete with helmet and racing outfit, getting ready at the beginning line of the race track, and I can clearly hear the sound of the car engine running and gearing towards higher gear all set and ready to start the race
Somehow I felt that this vision has spiritual significance for the time we are in so I continues to watch and to listen to what God will impress to me.
And below is the message that I got which I pray will bring encouragement to you all as it had to me.
Its time to move forward:
The driver all set to go represents the coming move of the Holy Spirit. Our Heavenly Father has shifted to a higher gear and He is inviting His people to join Him in this ride. This move will be both exhilarating and intimidating. But to those who totally trust God and His leading, this ride will be the greatest joy ride of your lifetime.
Question is Are You Ready?
The questions is Are you ready for the ride? Do you have total confidence on the skill of the driver? The answer depends on you.
Who are qualified to ride with God?
God is looking for people whose hearts and motives are pure and who do not hide their weakness from God. These are people who when they are convicted of their shortcomings are quick to keep short account with Him.
Just like when He choose David He said to Samuel, The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. (1 Samuel 16:7)
Therefore our present success will not be His basis for choosing us, it will be the condition of our hearts which will matter to Him. Though David has failed God greatly when he committed adultery with Bathsheba and plotted the death of Uriah ( 2 Samuel 11:1-26). Despite Davids shortcoming God continues to use him greatly and he was fondly remembered as a man after Gods own heart.
Special group of people: Please take note
Presently there is a big group of Gods children who in the past had experienced the great mighty moving of God in your life and ministry . But today due to various circumstances , some of you have to give up these work or ministry for the sake of keeping peace, for family, for children and in the process, today you found yourselves seemingly bereft of any success.
Despite the sacrifices you had to make, you knew in your hearts that what you had done was of God and for God and you had peace about these actions. Despite the difficulties you had to face, the sacrifices you had to endure, the seemingly barrenness of your life right now. Silently, quietly you continue to worship and honor God as best as you knew how.
Yet you cannot deny that there is a greater longing in your hearts to be able to do more for Gods people, to do more for His kingdom, to be able to implement all the ideas & plans that you felt God has planted in you to do, and which you had been birthing in the innermost parts of your hearts for so long. Yet for now, these dreams & visions may seem unattainable.
Great news for you: God had you in His mind..
If you can identify with that group. Then, I have great news for you. God had you specially in mind and will call you to be on the forefront when His Holy Spirit makes the move.
As you have been faithful to God and had hold nothing back in the process, but laying down everything at His feet. So now its His time to respond. He will not forget His promises and His call for you and your family and you will see Him opening doors & opportunities for you which you thoughts were closed or have been lost.
A time just like Zechariah & Elizabeth, Joseph & Marys encounter with God (Luke 1)
Two different couples, with different age level & facing different challenges yet both families lives were intertwined with each other, and link by God for each other comfort & confirmation & for a common cause.
So will it be in the coming days. God will used the wisdom, skills & experience of those from the older generations and He will link them with the new ideas & innovative ways of the younger generations. The experience & expertise of each will complement and not compete, it will not contrast but will blend perfectly to fulfill Gods kingdom for the nations.
What Peter had spoken about to the crowd during Pentecost will once more be manifested in our midst. This is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: In the last days, God say, I will pour out my Spirit on all people, your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. (Acts 2:16-18)
As in the days of Jesus disciples:
The people of God who will ride this wave will once more impact the community where they have been planted by God.
Holistic endeavors connected with education, skills training, community development, poverty alleviation, indigenous inventions, environmental protection and many other projects that the community will need, will once again be spearheaded and pioneered by Gods children who will have an important role in these projects.
God is releasing a marketplace anointing where your skills, talents, hobbies and spiritual gifting will be used extensively by God to impact the people that you are and will be working with in the coming days.
Ministry, business, job opportunity which you had given up before and thought had been lost will once more be brought back into your path by our God Himself. He will network you with people whom He had chosen to work beside you for these projects.
Just like in Jesus time, Gods work will start off small , they may not seem significant in the beginning, but as your continue to press in and faithfully do what has been assign to you , the impact and effect of these works will catch the attention of the secular world .
You will experience our God going before you and preparing the way for you. You will hear Him clearly guiding you this is the way, walk in it.
Our Father, thank You for quickening our hearts once more with this message. We will await that day O God with great expectations. Come Holy Spirit, even today, please prepare us for the work that You have chosen for each one of us to do. And just like David cried out to You with these words Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.(psalm 139:23-24) So, we cry out to you in the same manner today.
As a watchman wait for the dawn , so we also wait and long for You O God. Move as You had in the days of old. Summon Your power O God and show us Your strength as You had done before.
Be exalted once more in the midst of the nations. Raise up the standard of Your people. Pour out Your favor upon us so that people around us will know that Your Presence is with us and they will be able to distinguish Your children from the people of the world.
Thank You for revealing Your plans and Your heart for us for the coming days. We will await for them with great expectation and with thanksgiving in our hearts. Unto You O God and You alone be all glory and power and might for all that You have done, are doing and will do in our lives. In Jesus Christ Name, we say Amen, Amen.
The crystal ball needs some Windex, the tarot cards are missing a few jokers, the chicken bones are KFC leftovers, and my Oiuja board keeps spelling “C-O-F-F-E-E’, for some reason.
That’s good. All such are hokey counterfeit sources anyway! LOL.
Please take care of yourself. You are deeply cherished round these parts.
As far as nukes go, there have been a couple of prophetic words about nukes in seven cities, one is Montreal, one is Cincinnati, and NY, Washington, I think San Francisco, and I’m not sure if I remember correctly the other two, but one was in Texas (Houston??) and one in FL. Prayer will really be needed in the next few years. We need to take prayer very seriously because it’s our only weapon against this. It can only be beaten by spiritual warfare on our part. We battle not against flesh but against powers and principalities such as the Prince of Persia, the Prince of Greece, etc.
This rings true to me because our pastor is preaching on the Heart of God this year. Our sermon on worship and loving God through worship was amazing on Sunday. We have also started a Foundations teaching. Most of the adults in the church are coming.I feel we’re one of the churches in the area that is truly loving and that God is building on it. There’s been a great outreach to students at the local university and we have about 15 of all ethnic backgrounds coming. It’s been such a blessing. It’s exciting to be part of a LIVING church!
We also just had a four week video teaching by Robert Morris on First Fruits, giving God our first in everything. If we do it ONLY because we love God and want to obey his kingdom principles, he WILL prosper us in every way. When we tithe, HE gives the increase. It’s not to be done however to gain finances, only to please Him. We were struggling financially in our church for over a year. We were behind every week. Since the teachings, which is only a couple of months now, we have tripled our tithes and we’re way ahead. It’s amazing.
Interesting. We see so much of that here even, with sharp tongues criticizing men and women of God because we don’t agree with their ministries. God is NOT pleased when we criticize our brethren.
Amen to that prayer. I feel as though I’d been put on a shelf for the last six or seven years. But I’ve stuck it out by God’s grace and am ready for a new anointing. Please pray that He will use me in mighty and not-so-mighty ways through my sicknesses or in spite of them. Mxxx
Thanks for the ping!
thanks for the ping.
I much agree.
One Freeper moved here because of visions of such nukes going off at an air base near their former home.
I do believe a number of US cities will be nuked in our era. I don’t know when.
I’m not at all CERTAIN that the OP has to do with nukes. It COULD well have to do with something entirely different. A nuclear ANOMOLY doesn’t quite sound like a nuclear bomb, to me. We shall see.
PRAISE GOD for that!
I agree entirely.
The heart attitude is crucial, imho.
People tend to shove this issue into a black tidy little box or a white one.
I think it takes great sensitivity to Holy Spirit.
Critical, fleshly, carnal, mean spirited, haughty judgment is certainly evil and comes back to one’s self with horrid interest.
Declaring the truth God wants declared about an issue, group, belief, even an individual is different. The critical issues are the heart attitude of the one stating the truth and the motivation as well, usually, as the manner.
But the manner can be God-directed in everything from Christ’s rebuked of the RELIGIOUS leaders of 2000 years ago to a gentle exhortation.
If we earnestly are endeavoring to walk with God and submit to Him, I think He is faithful to blow the whistle when we are about to engage in the wrong thing in this ball park. Then we have to stop quickly and adjust our attitudes and our motives—and perhaps back away and do the opposite.
Thank you for your kind words.
Thank you for your kind words.
"It COULD well have to do with something entirely different. A nuclear ANOMOLY doesnt quite sound like a nuclear bomb, to me."
I thought the same thing at first also, that it could be something to do with a weather or astronomic event that we would think utterly impossible. That would be cool.
But then He uses the term "fallout," and what do we associate with "fallout?" Uhh, nukes....
The GOOD news here is the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. I'm envisioning the greatest outpouring since the first century.
We've had two "near revivals" that I can think of in my lifetime (I'm fifty), and what I mean by that is, that church leaders show up in their pulpits on Sunday morning and suddenly look out at a packed house. Filled to the rafters. I remember the "drive bys" reporting that people were showing up in churches to pray.
Both instances were precipitated by the masses suddenly feeling that their lives and their comforts were threatened.
The first time was in 1991 with the first Gulf War. The "drive bys" were reporting that WWIII could be imminent, Saddam had nukes, the Republican Guard was trained to fight to the death, and this could go on for decades. People were frightened, and churches were packed. Their prayers however, were answered, and the war lasted what, three weeks? They then turned away (did they thank God? Don't know...), drifted back to the hedonism of human nature, and quickly elected Bill Clinton. Remember people saying how we needed "change?"
The next time was, obviously after 9/11. Same thing, we could be attacked again at any time, we had the anthrax scare, bio warfare threats, life as we know it could have ended at any moment, just as had been displayed in NYC and DC before our very eyes. The pews were packed. We were humbled. I remember asking Him then, "Lord, is it going to stick this time? Will these people stay?" I heard Him in my spirit say, "A few will stay, most will forget." Indeed they did.
Dr. Erwin Lutzer (Moody Church) once said, "People don't repent when they see the light, they only repent when they feel the heat!"
So based on the past "near revivals," I think this great outpouring of the Holy Spirit is not likely to occur without a massive loss of life and property preceding it.
Notice however, that the scriptures referenced here deal with God's protection of His people, and then he references so many multitudes praising God for His works! Myself, I'm thinking of the passage (in Isaiah, I think) that says that sometimes God wounds, but then he heals.
So here's my guess on this event: The sheep of His pasture will be somehow protected, or perhaps temprarily caught away so that we're unharmed or unaffected by the radiation. This would indeed by an "Atomic Anomoly," or physically impossible.
Hospitals and medical facilities would be either destroyed or completely overwhelmed. Imagine the lines outside of them, if they still existed. Imagine the suffering. Then imagine the sheep of His pasture reaching out to heal the injured in Jesus' name. All human systems collapsed, the only hope of life is in the Blood of the Lamb, prominently displayed.
(Think that'd get their attention?)
I don't see this happening until after we've sworn in President Obama though (ugh!), if for no other reason than I very clearly remember President Bush around 9/13/01 or so, literally pounding a podium and swearing "This will NEVER, EVER HAPPEN AGAIN on my watch...," and I know-that-I-know that he's spent many hours on his knees in prayer for God's mercy and protection of the nation in his charge. Obviously God's honored that so far. What a blessing to have had him as our president.
I dug these out of the archives, both from 2005. Note that it's not just the US, it looks as though it will be worldwide:
A Grievous Event
This morning the first thing that the Lord said to me was "a grievous event." Here is what He has to tell us about these words.
I want you to know, beloved, that something is coming to the world something that will be looked on by many as a grievous event. But let Me tell you with all sincerity of heart that this event will bring much pleasure and happiness to those who are following after My will.
You are My beloved. I have wonderful plans for you. Get ready to explore the depths of My heart and love every minute of it. There is no lack in Me, beloved, I supply all for which a heart could yearn.
So know this day, beloved, that a grievous event is coming to the face of the earth. Those who have walked in plenty will know plenty no more. I am cutting the supply of those things for which a man's heart craves above the will of the Father. I am giving it a good "SNIP!" and when I do, I will get man's attention in a wonderful way. No more will man be looking to the world to satisfy. He will find His satisfaction in Me.
And remember, beloved, I have food that no one knows about. I can supply all of your needs according to My riches in glory. And that is just what I will do. I will feed you, supplying you with everything for which your heart could yearn. And know this, dear child of the living God, I do all things well. I do all things promptly according to My timetable, and I will bless you far above anything you could EVER desire, if you will but follow My lead and seek My face during this soon and coming crisis to the world.

There is a blitzkrieg coming that will cause a humbling of America ! And many other western nations, and instigate things I am allowing to happen in order to bring about changes in the church and in the world.
Do not be fearful, but only pray and worship. Keep in the WORD. My word is life to your soul. And before all this hits, I will bring change in you that will cause humbling in many to change their minds about Me. When it does come, [ the blitzkrieg ] it will cause great suffering and pain in many, who are not ready. But you who are truly Mine, will know great blessing and love, and power. Many will learn to depend on ME MORE, than they ever thought.
Do not be concerned about your life My love, nor the lives of those around you for they will be changed in a moment, in a touch, in such a powerful way, that they will change forever. So do not be disturbed in your heart, but rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for I will pour out GREAT GRACE on you and on all you touch and pray for.
There will also be a LAUNCHING of plans that will catapult you higher in ME. Everything will change, but there will be more help, and more finances for all that is needed as you need it it will come. Before you call, I will answer. Stay quiet and in ME, so I can show you great and mighty things !
Somewhere I also remember reading that the outpouring of the Holy Spirit will be "a window of time," and that then the enemy will be allowed his wrath, and then the fun begins, as in real end-times stuff.
Soooooo, amoung other things, think of all the people that you care about that are not saved, and PRAY for them. I'm surrounded by them, dear wonderful people, all apostates, many friends and family. This will be their chance for their eyes to be opened, and great suffering will result in millions about-facing from hellbound to glorifying Christ Jesus our Lord!
13 Put in the sickle,
for the harvest is ripe.
Go in, tread,
for the winepress is full.
The vats overflow,
for their evil is great.
14 Multitudes, multitudes,
in the valley of decision!
For the day of the LORD is near
in the valley of decision.
15 The sun and the moon are darkened,
and the stars withdraw their shining.
"He was found guilty on all counts."
"Let the reader understand."
I don't get it. Who does "the guy" represent?
I bear a strong witness to your post and refs. They articulate what I’ve felt for a very long time.
I don’t know who the “Christian’ in military uniform is. Should be interesting!
MUCH APPRECIATE YOUR DISCERNMENT and your bothering to comment so substantively.
Blessings to you and yours.
I truly believe that many are sick because of their constant gossip and criticism of God’s anointed ones (imperfect as all of us are). I’ve had to examine myself on that score because I used to be very critical of other Christians that I felt didn’t quite measure up. I was so wrong. I had to repent of that.
Please read Oprah’s post #25 above. Puts many things I’ve felt for quite some time better than I’d articulated them to myself.
Thank you oprah. I feel the same thing is going to happen. I pray for my unsaved loved ones all the time.
I sent this on to family members, friends, and my senior pastor’s wife. Let’s pray they listen.
gossips within the camp.
This is still and even more
such a wonderful post you put here.
BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD.
What has come across your awareness, mind, heart, spirit the last 30 days that you’re willing to share?
I have NONE of the "glamorous" giftings. Tongues, miracles, healings, NADA. He has however, poured abundantly on me: Wisdom, Knowledge, and Discernment.
Thank you again for your kind words. Inbound FReepmail BTW....
Honor to whom honor is due!
You are worth it.
Thx for your msg.
