Silent Scream

This was written by my spiritual daughter, Cassie Lemire, and posted on her blog: http://lemirecassiedaughterofgod.blogspot.com. It is so powerful that I felt I should post it on my blog also.

Silent Scream
Shalom,

To all the women who read my blog, this poem was written for all the un-born children who never saw the light. Yahweh had me write this and I was not sure why. Then as I started to write the Holy Spirit told me why. Please understand that I do not judge anyone for I too am a sinner. Here is HIS message. Yahweh wants you to know that there is ALWAYS hope. HIS message was very clear. For I so loved the world I gave my only begotten Son. Ask for MY forgiveness, Repent and seek ME,Know that you are LOVED.

I felt the probe invade my secret place,
my little heart began to race.

I cried to you, you did not hear,
my silent scream filled with fear.

I tried so hard to win the fight,
my body fought with all it's might.

I know this was not God's will,
my limbs grew stiff my body still.

I know you did not feel my pain,
my life is over gone in vain.

I went to heaven to be with Jesus today,
my tears and pain HE took away.

Is There a Doctor in the House?

Recently a dear sister in the Lord wrote me telling me that she hoped the Lord called her home before His judgment was poured out in great measure upon this nation because she is physically disabled and in constant need of pain medication. She knew that medication would be in short supply during the coming years and she might not be able to get any. I fully understand what she was talking about and I knew how she felt. There is nothing wrong with hoping that the Lord calls her home because Paul himself wanted to go be with the Lord, but knew that the Lord had more work for him to do here on earth, so don't judge this woman because of her desires to be with the Lord.

My response to her was that during the coming years of great judgment upon this nation, that the power of the Holy Spirit would be greater than we can imagine and the Lord will use many of us to heal the sick and infirm so that they do not need medicine and pain killers. I believe this with all my heart.

But His power will not be given to those who have been seeking it for years so that they can do great things for Him and thus build up their own ministries and/or be recognized as a "mighty person of God". No, it will be given to those whom He can trust to use it as He tells them to use it for His purposes, and His purposes alone. It will be given to the humble who will not use His power to lift themselves up, but rather who will use it to see God Himself lifted up.

Back in 1983 the Lord anointed me with the gift of healing. He had me use it in church the next Sunday for one person, a woman who had been in and out of mental hospitals for several years since the death of her son. I did not know this woman nor did I know what her problems were. But the Lord had me anoint her with oil and prophesy over her. In dreams over the next few days He told me what would happen the next time I saw she and her husband. She would be a new woman, delivered from this horrible depression and mental torment and set free with a new life. Three weeks from that Sunday I saw she and her husband and they told me the exact words that the Lord told me in the dream they would say - she was a new woman, a new wife. The Lord had healed her!

That was the only time that He has let me use that gift. It is now 27 years later and He has not let me use it again, even on people whom I loved and wanted to see healed. The time is coming in the near future when He will release me to use the gift of healing in mighty ways, but only when, and on whom, He tells me. It will not be as I will, but as He wills.

So will it also be with many of you in the years to come when His judgment is poured out upon this nation. He will give many of you the gifts of healing and miracles in the coming days, to use as He directs you, not to use as you desire. In the coming days there will be many who will be physically and/or mentally ill who will not have access to medicine because there will be very little medicine available in this country. There will be shortages of everything, including medicine. But the Lord is merciful and He will provide His healing power for many who are ill in those days. His power of miracles will be used to let the blind see, the lame walk, the deaf hear, the mute speak. Arms and legs that have been lost will miraculously appear. Hearts that have serious medical problems will be instantly healed. Mental and emotional problems will be healed. Cancer will be healed. Arthritis will be removed from joints. Demons will be cast out. These things He will do through us FOR HIS GLORY AND HIS GLORY ALONE. Many will be saved and led to Him because of these things.

Where will these things take place? Wherever He wants them to happen. Sometimes they will happen when you meet someone on the street and the Lord tells you to pray for them right then and there. Sometimes He will have someone come and knock on your door and say "I don't understand this, but I felt led to come to your house just now", these will be people whom you have never met before. The Lord will tell you how to pray for them and He will heal them of whatever it was that was causing them a problem. Many will then give glory to God. But many will not, just as happened in Jesus' time.

Yes, sometimes He will even use us in churches. He will send us to a particular church one Sunday for no reason that we can comprehend. But when we get there He will tell us what to do, who to pray for, who He wants to heal. But let me warn you my brothers and sisters, some of the people may accept you and love you for what God is doing through you, but most of the leaders of the churches will not, because they are not doing it and controlling it and getting the glory. Just as the Pharisees and Sadducees rejected and persecuted Jesus, so also shall we be persecuted and run out of the churches.

Even in the places of refuge the same things will happen sometimes. Expect to be rejected and expect to be persecuted - Jesus was, and we are to share in the fellowship of His sufferings. His own people hated Him because He healed the sick and performed great and mighty miracles. Sometimes the Lord will let us be loved and accepted, other times we will be hated because we showed people the love of Jesus.

Remember the story of the man who was bound in the catacombs but kept breaking the chains. He was filled with legions of demons. Jesus set him free and ordered the demons into the herd of swine who promptly ran off the cliff and drowned. What did the people say to Jesus? They asked Him to leave their town. So also shall we be asked to leave churches and places of refuge for doing the will of the Lord healing people and setting them free from demons.

The Lord will use us to do mighty things in the near future, but be prepared for the persecution and rejection that will come along with it.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving all! I am thankful for all those who read and heed the messages the Lord has given me for this blog. I never expected to have a blog, much less one that is read by so many people. I am thankful for all the encouraging replies I've received, and especially the ones where the Lord changed people's hearts and lives through His messages on this blog. I am thankful for His warnings about what is about to come upon this nation, so that we can prepare ourselves for it in prayer, fasting and reading the Bible. I am thankful for all of you.

God bless and keep you, my brothers and sisters!

Filled With the Spirit, Speaking in Tongues

This is a post that is sure to stir things up because so many people have been taught such foolishness about these things. Contrary to what you may have been taught, being filled with the spirit has nothing to do with the gifts of the Spirit. Being filled with the Spirit means that you exhibit the FRUIT of the Spirit, not the GIFTS of the Spirit. Gal 5:22-23 - "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."

Unless you exhibit the fruit of the Spirit, you are worthless. It doesn't matter if you have all the gifts of the Spirit,without the fruit of the Spirit you are nothing. If people cannot see the fruit of the Spirit in you, you are nothing but a noisy, clanging cymbal. The gifts of the Spirit are just that - gifts. The Holy Spirit gives them as He wills to give them, to whomever He wants to give them to for His purposes and His purposes alone. 1 Cor 12:7-11 - "Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines."

I would rather have the fruit of the Spirit within me than be given all the gifts of the Spirit. Back in 1984 I attended a little Pentecostal storefront church one Sunday and there was a young guy preaching. My thoughts were that he was preaching just to hear himself speak. He really had nothing of value to say the whole time. After he finished his spiel, he began to minister in the Spirit. He pointed at me and said that I would minister in gifts of prophecy and word of knowledge. I thought "So what, I already do that." As I walked out of the building I remember saying to the Lord "Lord, if they can't see Your love in me, then what good am I? It doesn't matter how many spiritual gifts I have, unless people can see Your love in me, I am worthless." If I am not filled with the fruit of the Spirit, I am a noisy, clanging cymbal.

Yes, the Lord has given me many of the gifts of the Spirit, but they are only to use as He directs me to use them, not as I will. People seeing His love in me is all I really care about.

"When you're filled with the Spirit you'll speak in tongues." How many times have you heard that? It is 100% wrong. "Well, Cliff, when the Holy Spirit came upon the disciples in the Upper Room on the day of Pentecost they spoke in tongues!" Yes, they did. But it was in foreign languages that the people who were outside understood since those people were from many nations and languages. The disciples were preaching the gospel in many different languages that day, languages that they themselves had no knowledge of. Indeed they were speaking in tongues, foreign languages. Because they were preaching in foreign languages that they did not know, but the people outside who were from other nations and languages understood, then many were saved that day. They were not babbling away in a heavenly language that no one understood because that would have done no good.

"Ah, but the Bible says that tongues in the church is for unbelievers." Yes, it is. But the tongue that is spoken of here is a foreign language which unbelievers from another country and language who have just come into the church, will understand and therefore be convicted by it. Use your heads people, if a person comes into a church and hears a bunch of people speaking in a heavenly prayer language, why will they be convicted? They will just think it is a bunch of nuts babbling like fools. There is a proper time and place for everything.

Yes, there is tongues and interpretations, I myself have been the recipient of this.
Back in 1982, a few days after the woman I loved and wanted to marry told me that she didn't love me and couldn't marry me, I was at the church altar crying my eyes out, my heart breaking, when one of the elders and his wife came up to me. One began to speak in tongues, then the other interpreted. The things that I remember the Lord saying to me were "You will be a tower of strength for me, you will lead many men to me, and you will be victorious beyond your wildest dreams." That was not comforting to me at the time, but it was what the Lord wanted me to hear. I have witnessed tongues and interpretation at other times also. In its proper place, it is from the Lord.

Then there is the tongue that the Holy Spirit prays for us in groanings deeper than words. I honestly don't know what this is because I have never experienced it, nor has the Lord revealed to me its meaning.

Then there is the heavenly prayer language that the Lord gives us so that the Spirit can pray through us. This is what many people experience when they are anointed with the gift of tongues and begin to speak in a language that sounds rather strange to them - they mistakenly think this is "being filled with the Spirit", it is not. This is a prayer language that is to be used for that purpose - prayer. I can say, like Paul, that I pray in tongues more than any of you. But it is not something that makes me feel special, nor powerful, nor great. It is something that I do in obedience to the Lord. I can pray in tongues (almost all of my praying in tongues is done silently in my head) while watching a football game, while reading, while driving, while taking a shower. I have no idea what I am praying, nor do I care. But this I do know because the Lord has made it very, very clear to me, my prayers in tongues accomplish much, even though I have no idea what I am praying, and many time for whom I am praying. It is only later that I see a difference in the people whom the Lord has put upon my heart. Most of the time He never shows me the results of my prayers.

As far as messages regarding what the Lord is going to do in the future to the USA, I can only post those when He gives me something to say. If He doesn't give me anything to say about it, I stay silent regarding those things.

The Sheep And The Goats

Matthew 25:31-46

The Sheep and the Goats

Matthew 25:31-46 - 31"When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. 32All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

34"Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'

37"Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?'

40"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'

41"Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.'

44"They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?'

45"He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'


46"Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."

Although Jesus speaks of physically feeding and giving drink, He is also speaking of emotionally feeding and giving drink. When one of your neighbors was going through emotionally difficult times, were you there to feed them the comfort and understanding that they needed? Were you there to give them a drop of compassion to drink? What about those in the churches you attend? Have you been there for them when they needed someone to talk to, someone to show them a drop of love, someone to feed them a bite of mercy and understanding, to just spend the time to listen to them? When someone you knew lost a loved one, were you there to comfort them? Did you invite them over for dinner? What about new church members or even first time visitors, have you invited them over to your home to welcome them into the church family and show them love? Have you reached out to those around you to show them love?

Have you ever helped to feed the homeless? This Thanksgiving and Christmas, instead of having a big dinner and celebration, how about going with some ministry to feed the homeless and bring them clothes. Have you ever gone with a prison ministry group to minister to those in prison? Have you visited acquaintances in nursing homes? When your neighbor or someone in your church was sick, did you bring them food or ask them if you could run errands for them? What about the elderly person down the street, have you ever asked them if you can do anything to help them, do grocery shopping for them, given them a ride somewhere, take or pick up clothes at the cleaners for them?

When someone was emotionally hurting, have you clothed them with a warm embrace? Have you warmed them with love? When someone was emotionally vulnerable, did you clothe them in prayer, did you comfort them?

You see, we can tell people about Jesus until we are blue in the face. But until they see Jesus in us, we are worthless.

The Destruction of the USA

This was the very first and in my opinion the most important message that the Lord gave me for my blog. For those who haven't read it, I encourage you to do so. For those who have read it, I urge you to read it again.

The Destruction of the USA

My name is Clifford Hilbert and God appointed me a watchman. He even chose my name for me before I was born. I am a watchman who stands on the edge of the cliff watching the fording place in the river, so that when I see the enemy coming I can warn the people. Standing there watching requires long periods of forced isolation, idleness, unbelievable boredom and great patience - the exact opposite of who and what I am. But that is what God chose for me and all I can do is obey. I have been watching for many years and now see the enemy coming. It is time to blow the trumpet in Zion and sound the alarm.

For years biblical scholars have been trying to figure out where the USA, the most powerful nation that has ever existed, fits into the endtime scenarios. No one has yet come up with the correct answer. Why? Because the USA will not be a factor in the last days. It will not exist in the form it does today. God is on the verge of destroying this nation.

Why? Because we have been filled with pride thinking that we created this great nation and that we are the ones responsible for the great abundance we have here. We, as a nation, have failed to realize that it is God who created this nation and God who has blessed us with such abundance, that it is He who has prospered us.

We, as a nation, have turned completely away from the Lord and gone our own prideful, arrogant, sinful and decadent ways. Materialism has become our god. Money has become our god. Our own fleshly desires have become our god. Our powerful weapons have become our source of faith, instead of God. “In God we trust”, the slogan which is on own currency, is a lie.

For Christians, their big new church buildings have become their gods. Their “rights in Jesus” have become their gods. Their “faith” has become their god. The Pentecostals and charasmatics are proud of what they think are their spiritual gifts, and they use these gifts with pride and arrogance against their other brothers and sisters in Christ. They fall for every wind and wave of doctrine that comes along, and have no firm foundation to stand on. They believe that they are the ones who cause prosperity and health by their words. They have taken God out of the equation and consider themselves as gods who make everything happen by themselves. They have forgotten that the greatest gift of all is love, something they have very, very little of.

The Baptists are proud that they are “once saved, always saved” — even though Paul “worked out his salvation with fear and trembling”, and the Lord told the church at Laodecia (a church, people who thought that they were all saved) “I wish that you were hot or cold. But because you are neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!”

The Bible churches are proud that they alone know the real truth. Their pastors are all cemetery-trained and they know the Bible inside and out. They have dissected all the words and passages and can tell you the Greek and Hebrew meanings of everything in the Bible. They have discussed ten million times whether Jesus was fully human and/or fully divine. They know all the stories in the Bible, but they know nothing of the Living Word of God. There is no anointing in their sermons and the Word they teach is not “active and alive, and sharper than any two-edged sword” - it is dead , as are their hearts.

The Catholics are proud that their religion is the “only true religion”. They worship more false gods than the Greeks did — Mary and all the other dead people, the “saints”. They have made Mary part of the Godhead believing they need her to intercede for us with Jesus. The Trinity is now Father, Son and Blessed Mother. They believe that Mary has appeared all over the world and they worship the spots where there has been an apparition, even images on pieces of toast. I believe that there have been appearances at those spots - but no one has ever explained to them that Satan comes as an angel of light (a beautiful woman masquerading as the “Mother of God”) who performs great and mighty miracles that would deceive even the very elect, if that were possible. Satan has gotten what he wanted, the Catholics worship him instead of Jesus. His servants also come as angels of light, and masquerade as servants of righteousness. The priests are blind and consider themselves as little gods – unfortunately, too many of these “little gods” are child molesters. The Catholic Church conveniently shoves aside the Biblical requirement that priests must be from the tribe of Levi.

Methodists and Episcopalians are ordaining homosexual and lesbian ministers and priests. They are teaching that these abominable lifestyles are acceptable.

The churches worship their pastors as if they were gods and kings, and the pastors are filled with arrogance and pride. They want to build bigger churches so that they can have larger congregations that will inflate their egos even more. The shepherds have no idea what the word “shepherd” really means. They lift themselves up as great authorities, yet they have never learned that they are servants of the people. I have not yet met a pastor of any denomination who went out and sought a sheep that left his flock.

The pastors teach their flocks that “God is a good God, He doesn’t want you to suffer”, in direct contradiction to what the Bible says. The New Testament talks about suffering a lot more than it mentions blessings and prosperity. But that’s not “positive confession”, so they throw that aside. They teach them that “God’s promises are all for you. He wants to give you the desires of your heart. He wants you to prosper and be in good health. If you just have enough faith, you can claim your rights in Jesus and have everything you have ever desired.” No one teaches that Paul’s testimony was that he was hungry, thirsty, homeless, in rags, poorly treated, beaten and in chains. No one teaches what Jesus instructed them to do “Sell what you have, give to the poor and come, follow Me.” “He that does not give up everything he has, cannot be my disciple.” “Share in the fellowship of His sufferings” Claim those as your “rights in Jesus”!!!

No one teaches about the Beatitudes that Jesus spoke of in the sermon on the mount —
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”


No one teaches the whole truth, just the parts of it that “tickle men’s ears”, just the “feel good” gospel of the carnal.

The religious TV networks (I refuse to call them “Christian”) are filled with thieves, liars, charlatans and false prophets who are out to build great masses of worshipers for themselves. They steal from the widows, the poor, the hurting, the wounded, the hopeless and the desperate. They are nothing but a bunch of antichrists. And people look to them as gods who can do no wrong. There is no discernment in the Body of Christ today! The so-called “Body of Christ” in this country is corrupt beyond measure.

These are only a few of the many reasons that God is coming to destroy this nation and severely test the faith of most. Most “Christians” will fail the test and their names will not be written in the Book of Life. A great apostasy of the faith is about to happen in this country. Many will be imprisoned, tortured, sawn in two and put to death because of their faith — only he that endures to the end will be saved. Most who read this will not be saved.

The USA itself is worse than Sodom and Gomorrah, in every way. Not only do we kill millions of innocent, unborn children in this country every year, but now that Obama is President, we will be paying for the murders of millions of unborn babies in other countries. Obama wants to pass legislation that will force all hospitals, including Catholic hospitals, to perform abortions on demand, regardless of the term of pregnancy or the age of the female. Homosexual marriage is something that the Obama administration wants legalized. The abortionists and the homosexuals “parade their sins in the streets”, and people are there to cheer them on, the nations leaders being among them.

Greed is rampant in all parts of society and in every organization in this nation, especially the churches. Our nation’s capitol, Washington, D.C. is the most corrupt city in America, and our politicians are wicked beyond measure. Arrogance, pride, contempt, crime and greed are hallmarks of our nation’s capitol. We are proud of all the great buildings that form our cities, all the money that is made in them, and all the materialism that exists in them. Drugs have invaded every part of our society. Morals no longer exist in the USA. Good is now called evil, and evil is now called good.

When this country elected Barak Hussein Obama as President, God said “ENOUGH!!”

“You wanted leaders after your own hearts, so I’ve given them to you. I’ve given you the most corrupt, arrogant and deceitful President and administration in the history of your country. They will lead your country into the worst decadence and depravity it has ever known.

“My people have been waiting for signs and wonders for years and years, waiting for me to do great and mighty things. I already have, but no one was paying any attention. My ways are not your ways and My thoughts are not your thoughts. As far as the sun is from the moon are My thoughts higher than your thoughts and My ways higher than your ways. I sent the Great Depression to warn you that you were becoming too focused on wealth and greed. Few listened. I sent the planes into the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001 to warn you that your pride, arrogance and lust for power and money had gone too far. Few listened. I sent Hurricane Katrina in 2005 to warn you about your sexual and spiritual decadence and depravity that has become an abomination reaching to the heavens. Few listened.

So now I will destroy your proud, arrogant, greedy, depraved and decadent nation and churches. You would not humble yourselves before me and turn from your wicked and evil ways. So now, I the Lord your God will force you to your knees, literally. My judgment upon you is coming much quicker than any ever expected. It will be total and complete. Never again will you stand proud and tall as a nation. Never again will you exalt yourselves above Me”.

First will come the economic collapse of this nation, because money has become what you worship, not the Lord. Another watchman, John Johnston (http://www.unitedstatesprophecy.com/) saw that when Fidel Castro dies, then will come the complete and total collapse of our economy. Why God set it up that way, I have no idea. I just know that He did and that John is correct. You are seeing just the beginning of that in the last few months of 2008 and the first few months of 2009. That is just the very beginning. It will get much, much worse — the complete and total economic collapse of this nation. The worst is yet to come.

Back in 1986 I was driving through the Dakotas and pulled up to see Mt. Rushmore. As I pulled the car into the parking lot I suddenly saw Mt. Rushmore come tumbling down. Until March 3, 2009, I didn’t know what this meant. Now I do. Spiritually, this means that God will not let those men who built this country upon Godly morals and principles see His destruction of the nation they so dearly loved. Physically, it is His warning to flee the cities and not look back. Pray that you are not with child then, because the worst is still to come.

Immediately following the fall of Mt. Rushmore there will be major solar storms (expected by astronomers in 2011-2012) that will cause catastrophic electrical, electronic and communication failures in many areas of the USA and the world. This happened in Quebec some years ago and all power was lost for days, even weeks. All power will be lost in many major cities, including New York City. Complete power grids will shut down, affecting large areas of the country. When this happens gangs will run rampant all over the cities that are affected. They will loot, rape, rob, steal and kill like never before. There will be fires all over which will not be possible to put out because there will be no power to run the water pumping stations, and the looters will shoot the fireman who try to put the fires out. The crime wave in New Orleans after Katrina was nothing compared to what is about to happen. It will be complete civil chaos that the police and National Guard will not be able to stop. People will be leaving these cities by the hundreds of thousands to escape the violence. The USA will be paralyzed. The worst is still to come.

On that same trip in 1986 I was driving through Granite Falls, MN and stopped to eat dinner and spend the night at the home of some friends’ parents. After dinner I was talking a walk in the neighborhood (which was out in the country) and glanced upon some huge grain silos. All of a sudden I saw these silos explode! I knew that the Lord was telling me that our vast supply of food in this country would suddenly disappear. Since then I have learned that the temperatures in these silos are closely monitored to prevent static electrical buildup, among other things. With no electricity, these silos will explode. With no electricity, our refrigerated foods will go bad. With no electricity, our food processing plants will not function. Will no electricity, our processed seafood and meats will quickly spoil. With no electricity, our water purification plants will not be able to operate. Without electricity, most people will not be able to cook. The solar storms will cause the electricity in many areas of our country to be off for weeks and even months. Our food supply will suddenly be gone. There will be great famine all over the country. The worst is yet to come.

Back in 1984 I was listening to a Christian radio station when a guy began to prophecy. I remember him saying “.. and though the President seems to be a good man, he will bow his knees in surrender to the Russians”.

While the country is in complete and utter chaos like we’ve never known before, the Russians will then unleash a nuclear attack upon us from submarines off our coasts. Impact will come only seven minutes from launch. This will destroy a number of major cities. See John Johnston’s: “www.unitedstatesprophecy.com/russia_invades_america.html” for more specifics. God will judge us for the pride we take in these great monuments (i.e. skyscrapers) that our hands have built, and the materialism we worship. President Obama will not retaliate, but will bow his knees in surrender to the Russians. They will come and enslave our people and rape the resources and the women of this country. This is how quickly this will be upon us. The worst is yet to come.


Back in 1983 there was a prophet in Dallas who had a vision of all three seaboards of this country being hit by tidal waves of 200-300'. In 1984 I was visiting a friend who lived on a small river near Baton Rouge, La. We were outside sitting on chairs on the lawn when suddenly I saw this huge 30-60' wall of dirty water come rushing over the property. This was over 100 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico!

John Johnston has also seen a huge tidal wave hitting the East Coast and knocking down the tall buildings like dominos. “I went into a deep sleep and had a dream I was on the boardwalk in Virginia Beach. It was night time and I think it was about 2:00 am. I put my foot up on the railing and was looking out over the ocean. There was what looked like a full moon on the horizon. I noticed just underneath the moon was a giant black wall on the horizon. The moon was reflecting white caps off the wall. As I stood there looking out into the Atlantic Ocean I realized that the white caps are from a massive tidal wave heading to shore. It was about 300 feet high. I felt the realization that it was too late to warn the people and the dream ended.

“In the fall of the following year, 2006 I had the same dream again.

“In January 2008, I had the same dream except this time I started running to people’s houses to wake them up and warn them, but it was too late.”

Revelation 18: 21 “Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore.” On March 2, 2009 an asteroid passed within 40,000 miles of Earth. That may seem like a lot, but it is within the moon’s orbit of earth and just twice the distance from Earth as some of our communications satellites. What will happen when an asteroid hits our planet? Remember the Star called Wormwood which the angel threw into the sea? That could cause tidal waves like the ones which will hit our coastlines. It would also be hot enough to make the seas turn red like blood.

The destruction from these tidal waves will be beyond human description. The death toll will be in the tens of millions. Why? To destroy the vile, abominable and detestable sexual and spiritual practices which flood this country. Several months after Katrina there was a Decadence Day parade held in New Orleans, an annual event. Mardi Gras, which is approved of by the Catholic Church, is nothing but a huge pagan festival. All the different parades are named after different Greek gods and goddesses — Bacchus, Endymion, Venus, Proteus, etc. The floats move down the streets and the people are all raising their hands, waving them, shouting “Throw me something mister!”, to the maskers on the floats. Spiritually they are worshipping the gods of the floats. The next day they go to mass and get the ashes on their heads to start the beginning of Lent. They party like the heathens they are, then go for “absolution and forgiveness” the next day. I am a former Catholic, originally from New Orleans, so I speak from personal, first-hand experience.

God has had enough!!

In 1985 while on my way to Phoenix, I spent the night with an older couple in Benson, AZ. I remember Enoch telling me that the Lord had told his church in Benson that there were members of that church then, in 1985, who would be martyred in front of the church for their faith. The Sunday after 9/11/2001 I went to a little church in Lindale, TX for the first time. Before the service, I remember seeing some little children playing in the aisles, just running around having a good time. The Lord told me that these very children would be running for their lives because of their faith, in this country. John Johnston (www.unitedstatesprophecy.com) has seen visions of foreign soldiers destroying churches in this country and executing the congregations in front of those churches.

That is when many will fall away from the Lord, part of the great apostasy of the faith. Many who have been deceived and brainwashed into believing the “faith” foolishness that is being taught by people like Kenneth Copeland, Pat Robertson, Benny Hinn, Robert Tilton, Rod Parsley, Mike Murdock, John Hagee, Joyce Meyer, Marilyn Hickey, Creflo Dollar, T.D. Jakes, Joel Osteen, James Robinson, Jimmy Swaggart and the like, will be “confessing the Word”, “claiming their rights in Jesus”, demanding that God honor His Word, but will find out that it doesn’t work like they’ve been taught it should. They will not have wealth, they will not have jobs, they will not have homes, they will not have their health and they will not have much to eat. They will be hungry, thirsty, homeless, in rags, poorly treated, in chains and they will fall away from the faith because they will say “God doesn’t honor His word, therefore He is a liar and I want nothing to with Him”. These sheep have believed the lies that their shepherds taught them. Their blood will be upon the hands of their shepherds. They listened to teachers who “tickled their ears”, because that is what they wanted to hear and believe.

The Bible is God’s word which He uses to accomplish that which He pleases and purposes — not what we please and purpose.


During the coming disasters that God will send upon this country, He will also give some of us hope and peace. He has been setting up places of refuge across this country where Christians will find safe harbor from the catastrophes unleashed upon America. In 1986 I lived in Phoenix for several months and traveled around Arizona some. I was visiting someone in Oracle, AZ and the Lord impressed upon me that this would be a city of refuge in the future. He also showed me that the mountains of Prescott, AZ would be another place of refuge - there are several large Christian camps up there. Lindale, TX (just north of Tyler) will be another city of refuge. I’m certain that there will be other cities of refuge that the Lord has set up.

In these places Christians will live together and provide for one another. We will grow our own food, raise our own livestock. We will not be dependent upon the government for anything, because the government will be trying to find us and kill us, just as John Johnston saw in his vision:

“During the same time as the vision about the state of Florida in July of 1995, God gave me a vision of a massive army coming down on America. He said, “John, I am going to allow the enemies of the United States to judge America. When America’s enemies come they will have no mercy on the men, women and children. I saw troop movement and they appeared to be Communist Chinese and Russian troops coming into the United States. As they came in, America was no match. I saw churches and synagogues were being leveled by heavy artillery. As the churches were being blown up I saw Jews and Christians being herded up and shot like cattle in front of their churches and homes. I saw the troops killing children and infants with their bayonets. I saw the American people tormented beyond imagination. The troops were void of emotions. Their objective is to take the nation and take it hands down. All able bodied working people will be forced into slave labor. Some will be taken to other countries and some left here. The soldier’s main objective was to kill all Jews and Christians. As I am seeing all this horror I asked, “Lord, what is happening?” He said, “Because of the wickedness of the United States of America I am allowing her enemies to invade her lands.” God ended the vision.

"The enemies of America are supernaturally being drawn together. When they come, they are going to catch the nation completely by surprise. Great is going to be her destruction and torment. This judgment is coming soon! The American people, Christians and non-Christians do not believe that God has fiery indignation that will be poured out. The great day of darkness is quickly coming upon the whole world, the day of God’s wrath and judgment.”

These places of refuge will not be fancy, they will not be very comfortable for many. They will not have all the luxuries and conveniences that we are used to. We will not have as much to eat as we are used to. Some places might not have running water and electricity. We will have to learn to do with much less than we are used to. They will not have much in the way of medical facilities. But God will provide the basic necessities of life for us.

Years ago there was a TV miniseries entitled “Amerika”, about a Russian takeover of this country. In there was a scene I remember very, very distinctly. A man was helping another man escape the Russians, and they were going through an underground passageway, when suddenly they came upon this large underground room. In the room were a number of Christians singing and praising the Lord. The escapee asked his friend “How can they be happy when there is so much trouble?” His friend replied “Because we know the Lord is doing this and why, and He is in control.” That peace and joy is what will sustain us during those times which are almost upon us.

A couple of miscellaneous things. In the early 90s God showed me that Russia will look to Mikhal Gorbachev as their savior, their messiah. How and when this will come about I do not know. The “great mountain thrown into the sea” mentioned in Revelation is Mount Fuji in Japan. It will erupt with such force that much of it will be
thrown into the sea. Can you imagine the destruction this will cause? Could the star
called Wormwood hit the seas with such an impact that it would cause Mt. Fuji to erupt?
I don’t know, but it is something to think about

How should you prepare for the coming catastrophes which are almost upon us? Pray, pray and pray. Ask the Lord to show you how each one of you individually should begin to prepare. Don’t listen to the fools on the religious channels, because they will have no idea what to do, even though they will claim to. The best thing you can do, next to praying, is to turn off your televisions, turn off all the CDs and tapes you have that were written about the Bible, quit going to all those conferences about the Bible, quit reading all those books about the Bible, take your Bible and begin at Genesis and start reading. Read it during every spare minute you have — if you’ll turn off your televisions you’ll be surprised at all the extra time you have to read the Bible. Read the Bible from beginning to end, over and over and over. Don’t go looking for things in it to confirm what you think you know, just read it. Yes, it will be hard and it will be very boring. But that is the only way to learn what God wants you, specifically, to learn. Turn off the radios in your vehicles and put on CDs of someone reading the Bible. That’s all, just reading it — quit listening to someone teaching you what man wants you to learn, but just listen to the reading of the Word itself and let the Spirit teach you. “For you no longer have need of a teacher, for the Holy Spirit is your teacher.” Quit trying to find someone to feed you the Word, feed yourselves. Babies need to be fed, adults feed themselves. It’s time for you to grow up.

One final warning — all the prayers in the world will not cause God to turn aside from, or delay, what is coming upon this country. Don’t waste your time praying for that. Pray for God to show you what He wants you to do in the next few years in order to last through the trying times ahead. Pray for strength. You will be “tested and tried in the fires of affliction.” Many of you will be martyred during the coming years. Many of you will turn away from the faith and your names will not be found in the Book of Life. “The way to destruction is broad and most enter through it. The gate to eternal life is narrow and few enter it.”

One last thought. What will happen to Israel when it does not have the USA to defend it anymore? We are truly that close to the last days.

Most who read this will reject it and laugh at it. Most will reject me, scorn me, ridicule me and persecute me. I expect that. But the Lord told me many years ago that 95% of what I teach is for 5% of the people. If 5% listen to this message, then I will have done what the Lord sent me to do. This message is not something that I will defend, argue about or even try to convince you that it is of the Lord. That is not my job. My job is to be the messenger. The message is God’s, not mine.

Blessed

Matthew 5: 1-12
1And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him. 2And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

3Blessed are the poor in spirit (destitute of wealth of learning and intellectual culture which the schools afford, men of this class most readily give themselves up to Christ's teaching and proved them selves fitted to lay hold of the heavenly treasure) for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted. It doesn’t say that you must always be joyful and praising the Lord.

5Blessed are the meek (Gentleness or meekness is the opposite to self-assertiveness and self-interest. It stems from trust in God's goodness and control over the situation. The gentle person is not occupied with self at all. This is a work of the Holy Spirit, not of the human will (Gal 5:23) for they shall inherit the earth.

6Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness (state of him who is as he ought to be, the condition acceptable to God - integrity, virtue, purity of life, rightness, correctness of thinking feeling, and acting) for they shall be filled.(satisfied)

7Blessed are the merciful (bringing someone relief from something unpleasant) for they shall obtain mercy. (compassion shown by one person to another)

8Blessed are the pure (sincere, genuine) in heart for they shall see God

9Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.

10Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' (integrity, virtue, purity of life, rightness, correctness of thinking feeling, and acting) sake for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

12Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Still In The Eye of the Storm

In August, 2009 I posted a message "In the Eye of the Storm", part of which is reprinted below. As we all know, the economy is still stagnant, unemployment is still high, and banks are still failing at record rates - 140 in 2009, 129 already this year. My brothers and sisters, God has been giving us time to mentally and spiritually get ready for hyperinflation and then the collapse of the American economy. Some of the fortunate ones the Lord is giving the financial resources to prepare for this. Others will have to rely on the Lord for provision. My guess is that hyperinflation will begin late next year and the collapse of the economy in early 2012, but that is only a guess. Only the Lord knows exactly when it will happen. This is a time given to us to spend in the Bible, in prayer and, for those who are able to, in fasting to get ready for what is about to befall this nation. Please make good use of this time we have been given. Lord, please prepare us for what is ahead.

Below is an excerpt from my message last year.

The Eye of the Storm
August 14, 2009

Right now we are in the rather calm eye of the storm. But the worst damage comes after the eye passes and the winds come from the other direction. The first winds of this storm weakened the economic structure in this country, but they didn't destroy it. At this date, there is a relative calm in the economy of this country - it seems to have stabilized and the stock market has rallied. Our politicians and newspapers are declaring that the recession is over and there will be good times ahead. DON'T BELIEVE THEM!!!!

This is just the calm in the eye of the storm. The winds are about to hit us from another direction and they will completely destroy the economy of this country. It is coming very, very quickly. Be prepared to live on virtually nothing. Be prepared to live without many of the conveniences you have today. Be prepared for exorbitant price increases on everything from food, to electricity, to gasoline, to clothes, to just about anything you buy. Hyperinflation is coming very, very quickly.

You must learn to do with much less than you have today. Energy prices will skyrocket to unbelievable levels and many of you will not be able to afford to air-condition or heat your homes. Gasoline prices will be higher than anyone could ever have predicted, be prepared to drive only for essential errands. Food prices will skyrocket and you will be able to afford only the basic necessities. Salaries WILL NOT rise accordingly. Cut back on your expenses and save as much money as you can.

Desires of the Flesh

Last week the Lord had me begin conserving water. I like to take long showers and I shave in the shower. But now I wash my hair and face, then turn the water off while I wash the rest of my body. Then I turn the water on to rinse off, then turn if off. Then I shave, without the water running, then turn it on to rinse off. When I am washing dishes I am learning how to do it with the least amount of water. Yes, I am even learning how to use the toilet (urinating) several times before I flush it.

Then He started having me conserve electricity. I am 64, 65 in November (UGH!), and I like a lot of light in the house because the older I get, the more light I need to see. Yet, I found out that I really don't need lights on in each room, and that there are several things I can do without turning on the lights in other rooms of the house.

A dear friend of mine asked me why the Lord was having me do these things. I replied without thinking "As an example to others." I thought afterwards "That's nice God, but who is going to see me doing this?" He didn't reply.

Then (yes, all this happened last week), He had me begin a fruit-only fast, for how long I do not know. Except He let me eat normally this weekend. Today I had actually planned on having only fruit, but as I was driving down the road I was drawn to a Fuddrucker's restaurant. Now, I know that the newspaper said that Five Guys Burger Restaurant has the best burgers, but as far as I'm concerned Fuddrucker's burgers can't be beat! As I went in the front door there were several people standing in line in front of me - all of them were obese. I looked around the restaurant and most of the people in there were obese. As I sat eating my world's best hamburger I kept thinking "How are these people going to survive in a few years when there is going to be just barely enough food to survive on, sometimes not even that?"

My sisters and brothers, in just a few short years - less than five, there is going to be a great famine in this land. There will not be enough food to feed everyone. The pictures we've seen of the poor, starving people in Africa are going to be a reality in this country. Those of you who are overweight will have an extremely difficult time surviving. Do you think that in the places of refuge that there will be an abundance of food? There WILL NOT BE! There will be enough to survive on, but that will be all. If you think that others will give up their portion because you're still hungry after you've had your share, you are badly mistaken.

In addition to that, everyone in these places of refuge will be required to work, manual labor of some sort or other. Overweight people will receive no mercy because of their problem. It will be either work and eat, or not work and not eat. If you think I'm being hard about this, wait a few years and you will be glad I am telling you these things so that you can begin to change your ways now.

It is time now to get the desires of your flesh under control. If you wait, you will not survive what is coming upon this nation.

The first prophetic message I wrote on this blog, http://watchman2009.blogspot.com/2009/03/destruction-of-usa.html
will tell you about the solar storms that will cause much of this famine. This one also will give you more information: http://watchman2009.blogspot.com/2009/10/solar-storms.html

There will be during these times a drought as well as a famine. Now is the time to begin to learn good water conservation habits. Electricity will be extraordinarily expensive, so now is the time to learn how to save on electricity. Gasoline will be hard to come by and wretchedly expensive, so learn now how to conserve gas.

Now is the time to begin to get the flesh under control.

On another subject, the situation in the Gulf of Mexico is not over. What we're seeing now is a pause in the actions of the Lord. The worst is yet to come. The second rig exploding a couple of weeks ago is God's sign regarding that.

A Prayer For Judgment

Lord, You have warned the people of this nation over and over for years now, but few have listened. This nation and its people are like Sodom and Gomorrah. They are like the people in the time of Noah - drinking, partying, sinning in the most detestable ways, parading their sins in the streets. They are actually proud of their abominations. They think nothing of the millions of unborn children they have murdered. They think nothing of their abomination of homosexuality, instead wanting it to be viewed as an acceptable lifestyle. They think nothing of violating their marital vows. They think nothing of cheating others, stealing from others, murdering others. They worship their proud and arrogant President, they worship their money, they worship their TVs, their worship drugs such as cocaine, they worship all their possessions, they worship their sports stars. They worship everyone but you, Lord. They call good evil, and evil good. This is a wicked and perverse generation.

Enough Lord, enough! I pray that you will now pour out not only your judgment, but also your wrath upon this wicked and ungodly nation. They have thrown You out of this nation, so I pray that You will throw them out of this nation. I pray for catastrophe upon catastrophe to be poured out upon this evil land. I pray that you will have no mercy upon them. I pray that you will unleash horror upon horror on this people until they literally bow their knees in surrender to you.

Lord, Your prophets have cried out to this people, warning them time after time after time. They have not listened, they will not listen. Instead they get worse and worse. I pray that you will now fulfill that which your servants the prophets have spoken about what You are going to do to this land for its wickedness. I pray that you will vindicate your watchmen who the people have rejected. Men and women like John Johnston - www.unitedstatesprophecy.com., Daniel Eggers - www.prayersforthepeople.com, Jan Meador - www.janmeador.com, Debbie Rennier - www.hisprophet.net, and others who have been your faithful watchmen. Vindicate them, O Lord! Show the world that they truly have been your faithful servants and that they have spoken what you have told them to speak. Vindicate them, oh Lord! Vindicate them!

Lord I do not pray for mercy for the people of this land, except for those who truly have a heart for You. I pray that You will watch over these and protect them. That You will guide them to places of refuge during the catastrophic years ahead. I pray that Your Spirit will be poured out upon them so that many will truly see Your love reflected in them. I pray for mercy for those who have been misled by their pastors and teachers. I pray that you will lead them to the ones who will remove the blinders from their eyes, who will teach them the true gospel, who will deliver them from the false doctrines that they have been taught, who will help to heal their wounded souls and hearts, who will deliver them from the forces of darkness,and who, more than anything else, will love them.

For You have raised up Your holy remnant for just this time, Oh Lord. You have raised us up to minister to the hurting, the fearful, the trembling, the wounded, the rejected and the lost during this time. Now I pray that You will release us to do Your work.

Let the words your prophets have spoken now be fulfilled.

Hermine

Tropical storm Hermine came unexpected and hit the Texas/Mexico border leaving wind damage and drenching/flooding rains in many areas of Texas. Why write abbout this? The meaning of Hermine is "complete, universal; messenger; earthly". Hermine is God's earthly messenger of the complete and universal destruction that is coming unexpectedly and quickly upon this nation. Obama would not listen to God's warnings about interfering with Israel, the Lord's last warning being Hurricane Earl. Therefore the Lord sent Hermine as an harbinger of what is coming very, very soon with no more warnings.

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Storm Warning

It is no coincidence that hurricane Earl is headed for the east coast just as the "peace talks" with Israel and the Palestinians have begun on the east coast, in Washingtom, D.C. I can sense in that storm God's great anger towards this nation's leaders for interfering with His Holy Land. I see an irate and wrathful God in that storm. Obama has been warned to keep his hands off the Holy Land, and he has not listened. (Yes, he actually did read my letter to him in which he was warned to leave Israel alone.) This hurricane is the last warning that Obama will receive. After that, the Lord's wrath will begin to be unleashed upon this nation.

Obama's Religion

For Obama to call himself a Christian is to blaspheme the name of Christ. Jesus was humble, meek and lowly of heart, He came to serve. He was filled with love, compassion and mercy. He spoke the truth. Barack Obama is egotistical, narcissistic, arrogant, condescending and patronizing. He is the most arrogant man to ever occupy the Oval Office. He has not one drop of love, mercy, campassion nor humility in him. There is no truth in him, he is the Liar-in-Chief.


He attended Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years. But when it became obvious that he would lose votes if he stayed there, he immediately left. This is not characteristic of a loyal and honorable man. Obama showed by his actions that he has no loyalty nor honor.

Is he a Christian? Certainly not! There is no evidence of Christ in him.

A Cash-only Society

What???? A cash-only society?? I thought that we would have cashless society because of the mark of the beast, the chips implanted in our foreheads or hands, etc.!

Sorry to upset the apple cart, folks, but we are about to have a cash-only society here in this nation. This morning I read a story about the recent storms in Washington, D.C. that caused several hundred thousand people to be without electricity. So what, you say, that has been happening for ages. Yes, it has. However, the thing that jumped off the page at me this time was that the people could not use their credit cards in the stores because all the power, and thus the electronics, was out. The stores would accept only cash.

When the solar storms hit this nation in full force in 2012, yes that's only two years away, there will be vast sections of this country that won't have electricity. No electricity means no credit or debit cards will be able to be used, only cash. If you don't have cash, you will not be able to buy anything. How will this affect the rest of the country? I do not know at this time. But maybe we have some computer gurus out there who can advise us on this. If people can't buy anything except with cash, which most don't have much of, then they will rob, steal and murder in order to get food, water and the necessities of life. There is going to be violence like this nation has naver seen.

You need to begin to set aside cash if you are able to. If I was able to I would begin to put cash in a safety deposit box in a bank. Yes, I think those boxes are safe for now. When the time comes for you to pull it out, the Lord will let you know.

This nation is about to become a third-world country and we all need to change our ways of thinking about what we need to survive, as opposed to what we want. I have a very, very dear friend, my Kikuyu sister-in-Christ, who lives in Kenya. She lived here in Dallas, Texas for almost 20 years before the Lord sent her back to Kenya in January of last year. Although she rents a house in the city, she has a home in the village where there is no electricity and running water. Rain water is collected in cisterns, just like people in the country here used to do years ago. The people grow their own food in gardens and raise their own cows, chickens and goats.They cook over wood fires, and heat their homes in like manner. And guess what, the people still survive! For us to survive here in the future, many of us will be forced to live in a similar fashion in the places of refuge where God will send many of us. Those days are not far off.

On a similar subject, much has been written about the mark of the beast, which is spoken of in the Bible. There has been much speculation about what it would be and how it would be forced upon mankind. Here is an article from Fox News that talks about a chip that has been implanted in some already and which, I believe, will be forced upon much of the world when the Beast comes into power. http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/05/14/radio-frequency-rfid-implant


"Having one in every person could relieve anxiety for parents and help save lives, or work on a more mundane level by unlocking doors with the wave of a hand or starting a parked car." The "need" for the chip will be "sold" as a great advance in technology which will make life "easier and safer" for everyone. "Wow, just think people, you won't need to carry cash anymore because this will allow you to just wave your hand in front of a scanner and the amount will automatically be charged to your account, or deducted from your bank account (of course, the government will have access to your accounts also). Your medical records will be instantly accessible in case of an emergency. You will always know where your children are. You won't have to carry keys anymore because this chip will automatically open your doors and start your cars just by the wave of your hand. Just think how wonderful this is going to be! Of course for this plan to work correctly, everyone must have the chip implanted in their hands." That is how easily it will be for this to come about. Most will not think twice about it. We saw how easily an antichrist, Obama, fooled the majority of the people in this nation. Just think how easily THE Antichrist will be able to fool the world with this idea.

The people that are left in this country at that time, as well as others around the world, will be forced to get the chip implanted. But the true Christians who hear from the Lord will know not to let the chip be implanted in them. That means that we will not have bank accounts because they cannot be accessed unless you have the chip. We will not have access to doctors and hospitals because we will not have the chip. We will not be able to buy food, clothing, medicine, or anything else on the open market because all these will require the chip. We will have to depend on the Lord and one another. I do believe that the Lord will supernaturally provide for many of us during that time (i.e., the loaves and the fishes).

These are perilous times, my brothers and sisters. Once again, I urge you to turn off the idiot boxes and draw close to the Lord by prayer, fasting and reading the Bible.

Addendum to message


There was some confusion in the minds of some regarding my latest message about a cashless society, then the mark of the beast, the chips implants, being forced upon most. A dear sister in Christ sent me this which I think will clear up any misunderstandings.


"Here's what I'm feeling in the spirit that we will go through a period temporarily when things are shut down and there will be a cash only society for a season, until they get the mark of the beast in place. Once there is a mainstream majority, only the mark will be accepted, and NOT cash. By that time, cash currency will likely have changed and have NO value, further trying to force people to take the mark so they can eat, or they may starve and die. If individuals are found without the mark, they will likely be martyred."

Vindicated


In a message on my blog several years ago I wrote that a solar storm would hit this nation before the end of Obama's first term, causing catastrophic damage to the electricity and electronics in major parts of this nation. When that happened our satellites would be blinded and the Russians would launch a nuclear attack upon us, then Obama would bow his knees in surrender to Putin, surrendering the USA to Russia. That didn't happen and I was devastated that I had misled people. I thought I missed the Lord.

A short time later I wrote a message on my blog stating that God had delayed His judgment upon this nation because of the prayers of the people, giving us a little more time to prepare. That sounded like an excuse for me missing the Lord. But in the past few days evidence has come out that indeed in 2012 there was a major solar storm that just missed this planet, one that would have caused absolutely catastrophic damage to this planet. It was a "near miss" as reported on Science News from NASA.

"July 23, 2014: If an asteroid big enough to knock modern civilization back to the 18th century appeared out of deep space and buzzed the Earth-Moon system, the near-miss would be instant worldwide headline news.

Two years ago, Earth experienced a close shave just as perilous, but most newspapers didn't mention it. The "impactor" was an extreme solar storm, the most powerful in as much as 150+ years.

"If it had hit, we would still be picking up the pieces," says Daniel Baker of the University of Colorado. "I have come away from our recent studies more convinced than ever that Earth and its inhabitants were incredibly fortunate that the 2012 eruption happened when it did," says Baker. "If the eruption had occurred only one week earlier, Earth would have been in the line of fire."

Although God was merciful this time, He won't be the next time. Before Obama leaves office we will be hit by the worst solar storm in history and its effects will be absolutely catastrophic! And yes, Obama will surrender this nation to the Russians.

To Be A Disciple

Luke 14:33 - In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple.

This is a verse I have never heard preached on in any church. I have heard taught "How to get everything that is yours in Jesus", "How to claim your rights in Jesus", "How to receive God's promises", but I have never heard this verse expounded on in any church. Today's doctrines are all about how to get what we want from God, not about how we need to be obeying God's commands. Luke 14:33 is one of His commands many of you will have to obey in the near future.

Giving up everything I had is something the Lord has required me to do twice in the past 28 years, in 1984 and in 2005. Was it something I wanted to do? Heck no!! But it was what the Lord required of me. Even now, everything I own will fit in the front seat of my truck. Am I happy about it? Absolutely not! All the precious memories, all the pictures, all the letters, all the mementos, everything that was dear to me I had to give up. Do I miss those things? Yes, I do. Did it hurt to lose them? Yes. But I have learned to be content (not happy, but content) without all those things.

In the near future many of you will be required to leave virtually everything behind when you have to flee the cities before God's judgment falls upon them. Many of you will have to flee in the face of persecution and to avoid death when the foreign armies are occupying this nation and indiscriminately killing people. Some of you along the Gulf Coast will have to flee before the destruction that is almost upon that part of the country. You will have to leave behind all your precious treasures and just take the bare essentials with you. I am telling you this ahead of time so that you can begin to ponder these things and mentally and spiritually prepare yourselves to be able to leave everything behind. If you truly want to be His disciple, you will have to give up everything. If you do not, you will be so burdened down that you will never make it to the places of refuge.

An Abomination to the Lord

In the news on June 23, 2010

High school seniors in Conn. city will not be graduating in the 'year of our Lord' this year, or any future years, after someone complained about religious reference

This is regarding teens' reading material:
Turning next to bookstores, they finally found what they'd been looking for — a recent explosion in the publishing world of reads that speak to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning teens

June is also, according to the Obamination, Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender Pride month.


Is it any wonder that God's judgment has already begun to be poured out upon this nation? How far we have fallen from our humble beginnings. The depths of our depravity as a nation has determined how far we will fall, how horrible that God's judgment upon this nation will be.

Catastrophe Upon Catastrophe

This will be a continuing thread as more and more catastrophes hit this nation. I'll be adding to it as events occur.

In my May 11 message, America's Burial, I said:  When we hear that the Lord's wrath will descend upon us and we will be destroyed "in one day", we think in human terms, while God thinks in His terms. "My ways are not your ways, and My thoughts are not your thoughts." "A day to the Lord is like a thousand years". In this case "in one day" means step-by-step over several years of our time, catastrophe after catastrophe after catastophe after catastrophe. The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was the beginning, the floods in Nashville were another step, the tornadoes in Oklahoma another step. These steps of destruction will continue one after another after another after another. It is my opinion that they will continue unabated, without letup.

We've had the oil spill which began on April 20, which will continue to be a problem for some time to come and will cost many $ billions to contain and cleanup (if cleanup is even possible in the marshes of Louisiana).

 May 3 - there were the severe thunderstorms and the flood in Nashville which killed at least 30 people and caused over $1 billion in damage.

July 25 - 2 killed as severe storms hit D.C. Hundreds of thousands without power.
            - Ten counties in Chicago area decladed disaster areas after heavy rains and flooding.

Taking a Stand

In Monday's Dallas Morning News newspaper there was a front-page article about how the members of First Baptist Church of Dallas, TX, one of the nation's largest Baptist churches, had pledged $115 million to renovate their facilities. This incensed me that they would spend so much money on making themselves more comfortable when so many people are hurting financially right now. I wrote the following e-mail to the newspaper on Monday.

"So First Baptist Church of Dallas is raising $115 million to remodel their buildings. What an abomination to God! In the midst of the worst economy since the Great Depression, when so many people are out of work and in need of help, when so many people are hurting, instead of making a greater effort to reach out and help these people and the poor, FBC Dallas is gathering a record amount of money to revamp their property! How self-centered! What pride! What arrogance! What greed! What a complete abomination to God they are!

Oh yes, I know, they'll say that the leaders prayed about it and felt that it was God's leading to do this. Let me ask them this: "Would God approve of wasting so much money on yourselves when there are so many hurting people out there? Would God sanction such self-centeredness, such self-indulgence, such pride?" Oh, I know FBC gives money to different charities. Well, just think how much more good you could do with $115 million, instead of spending it on yourselves.

Acts 17:24,25 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that He is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelling not in temples made with hands; 25 Neither is He worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing He giveth to all life, and breath, and all things.

This I promise you, you will never see the completion of the renovations because this nation will not be prosperous nor free by 2013. Read my blog wwwwatchman2009.blogspot.com to find out why. "

This is what the paper published on Wednesday.

"So First Baptist Church of Dallas is raising $115 million to remodel their buildings. What an abomination to God! In the midst of the worst economy since the Great Depression, when so many people are out of work and in need of help, when so many people are hurting, instead of making a greater effort to reach out and help these people and the poor, FBC Dallas is gathering a record amount money to revamp their property! How self-centered! What pride! What arrogance! What greed! What a complete abomination to God they are!"

The time has come for us to take a  stand against the greed, self-centerness, arrogance and lukewarm/cold hearts that fill the churches today. We can be silent no longer!

America's Burial

Back in February I wrote about "America's Funeral" after I had been listening to the song "America The Beautiful" played by the Andre Rieu Orchestra. Last night I was listening to the same album and again listened to "America The Beautiful". This time I was struck by it as a slow, step-by-step tempo of the burial of this nation.

When we hear that the Lord's wrath will descend upon us and we will be destroyed "in one day", we think in human terms, while God thinks in His terms. "My ways are not your ways, and My thoughts are not your thoughts." "A day to the Lord is like a thousand years". In this case "in one day" means step-by-step over several years of our time, catastrophe after catastrophe after catastophe after catastrophe. The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was the beginning, the floods in Nashville were another step, the tornadoes in Oklahoma another step. These steps of destruction will continue one after another after another after another. It is my opinion that they will continue unabated, without letup.

When will it all end? -  "Isa 16:13 - This is the word the LORD has already spoken concerning the USA. 14 But now the LORD says: "Within three years, as a servant bound by contract would count them, Moab's splendor and all her many people will be despised, and her survivors will be very few and feeble".   Does that mean that these catastrophes will stop then? No, it simply means that within three years this nation will cease to exist as we now know it. The nation's splendor will be gone and there will be few survivors.

That is how close we are to the end, people. The next few years are going to be extremely hard for everyone, especially for those who do not know the Lord. But they will also be extremely difficult for those who think they are Christians, but who daily chase after the things of this world. Again, I call upon the Christians in this nation to repent and turn your eyes to the Lord, for He is the only one who you will be able to trust in the coming days. He is the only one who will able to lead you in the coming days. Turn off the idiot boxes and turn to the Lord in prayer, fasting and reading the Bible - that is the only way you will have the strength to endure to the end. Only he that endures to the end will be saved.

A Harbinger Of Things To Come

In my first post on here "The Destruction of the USA", I wrote about the solar storms that were predicted by scientists to hit the earth in 2011-2012, with the USA being devastated by them (this part being from the Lord). I also posted another article about solar storms several months later.

Here is the link to an article about a satellite hit by a solar storm and the results of that. http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/05/03/intense-solar-storm-spins-satellite-control/?test=latestnews

When the major storms hit this nation, the majority of our satellites will be blinded and/or destroyed. Notice, I said nothing about Russian or Chinese satellites being destroyed - God controls even the solar storms. We will be completely blinded and defenseless when this happens. That is when the Russians will hit us with nuclear weapons and demand our surrender. That is also when our proud, conceited, arrogant and egotistical President will be completely humiliated - when he bows his knees in surrender to the Russians.

The Darkness Has Begun

As always the Lord does things the opposite of the way man thinks He is going to do them. Instead of the darkness beginning from above the earth, the darkness has started flowing from beneath the earth. The recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexco did not come from the north either, instead it came from the south. Man has his ideas of how God is going to do things, God has different ideas. "For My ways are not your ways and My thoughts are not your thoughts."

In my recent message "Light Into The Darkness" I said "We've done what we can and, thank the Lord, some have listened. But the time is at hand when the warnings will cease. The time is at hand when great calamity upon calamity upon calamity will be poured out upon this nation and its people, the Lord's wrath will no longer be delayed". His wrath has begun. The time for warnings has passed.

This oil spill is going to be worse than anyone can imagine, it is going to be absolutely catastrophic. The economic, ecological and environmental damage from this are going to be unbelieveable. It is going to destroy one of the greatest fisheries in the world. Not only will fish be destroyed by this, but also crabs, shrimp, oysters, birds and countless other types of wildlife that inhabit the Gulf Coast. When it hits the beaches in Mississippi, Alabama and Florida it will destroy the tourism industry in those regions. Businesses will close and people will lose their jobs. Prices of seafood will skyrocket. Inflation will begin in ways that we never expected. Hyperinflation is just a step away.

Yesterday the Obamination said ""Your government will do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes, to stop this crisis." What he forgot is that "If calamity come upon a city (or nation) is it not I who sent it, says the Lord". No one, not even this nation's government and all its resources can stay the hand of the Lord.

The Reason Churches Don't Work Like They Should

Why don't churches function the way they should? Why don't we see the spiritual power of the Lord today like they had in the first century church? Why don't teachers have the annointing they should so their words are sharper than any two-edged sword and penetrate to the bone and marrow? Why do we see so many proud and materialistic pastors who are misleading (or even not leading) their flocks? Where are the true shepherds of the Lord? How come the churches are so cold or lukewarm? Why are the churches so devoid of love?

The reason that churches are so messed up is because we have built them on man's order of authority, not God's.

God's order of spiritual authority is: Eph 2:20 "The church is built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets.." Nowhere does it say that the church is built upon the foundation of the pastor and/or the elders.

1Cor 12:28 - And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, divers kinds of tongues.

Eph 4:11 "It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers...."  This is the only verse in the Bible where pastors are mentioned, one time and one time only. Yet we have made pastors the kings of the churches.

In every instance in the Bible the apostle is the one who is mentioned as the head of spiritual authority in the church. Paul often spoke of using his apostolic authority over the churches - 2Cor 13:10 "This is why I write these things when I am absent, that when I come I may not have to be harsh in my use of authority." The apostles were also the ones who appointed the elders in the churches - Acts 14:23 "Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church", Titus 1:5 (Titus was an apostle) " The reason I left you in Crete was that you might straighten out what was left unfinished, and appoint elders in every town, as I directed you to".


Acts 15:6 "The apostles and elders met to consider the question", Acts 16:4 "As they traveled from town to town, they delivered the decisions reached by the apostles and elders in Jerusalem for the people to obey", Acts 15:23 " The apostles and elders, your brothers ... to the Gentiles ....." All these verses speak of the apostles’ authority in the churches and how they are set apart from the elders – for it doesn’t say just “elders”, but “apostles and elders”, making them a separate entity from the elders.

Gal 1:1 "Paul, an apostle sent not from men nor by man, but by Christ Jesus and God the Father". Today's concept of an apostle is "one sent", referring to missionaries sent by churches, usually to foreign countries. This is in direct conflict with what Paul says, because he was not sent by men, but by God. Nor was he a "missionary" in the way we think of that term today. He was sent by God to found churches, appoint elders and to have spiritual oversight and authority over those churches. If he was simply a missionary he could not speak about his authority over the churches, nor would he have the authority to appoint elders.

We see "type" of apostle in the O.T. in Melchizidek, he was a king and a priest. Jesus was called a high priest to the order of Melchizedek, in other words a king/priest. The apostles of today are also king/priests and are the head of spiritual authority in the churches. They are given a very special overview of God's plan for the churches, something that is given to no one else. They see God's whole plan for a church, as opposed to bits and pieces that others see. They are given God's authority to found churches and choose elders. That's quite different from the way churches operate today, isn't it? "And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets...." How far we have strayed from God's plan for the churches .

Prophets are given special abilities to see specific problem areas in churches and to point these out to the spiritual authorities in the church. We are also given the authority to anoint people for service. We work very closely with the apostles in the church.

I have never yet met a proud apostle or a proud prophet, but I have met many proud teachers, pastors and evangelists. God puts his apostles and prophets through the fires of affliction while He is raising them up. He humbles and breaks each and every one of them. A person does not mature spiritually except by suffering, and apostles and prophets suffer a lot so that they can be spiritually mature. We share in the fellowship of His sufferings, literally, so that we will be mature in Christ.

Where the churches got the idea that the pastor was the head of the church is beyond me, it is not scriptural, it is not the way God ordained for it to be. The term "pastor" is only mentioned once in the whole Bible, yet the churches today have raised up the pastors to be their kings, their idols whom they have given control over the churches. Nowhere in the Bible is this authorized, it is completely out of God's order. God's order is "first of all apostles, second prophets...." Mark 7:8 "You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men."

Matt 23:8 "But you are not to be called "Rabbi", for you have only one Master and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth "father", for you only have one Father, and He is in Heaven (I believe that this was written specifically for Catholics who call their priests "Father"). Nor are you to be called "teacher", for you have one Teacher, the Christ". Can we not say also "you are not to be called "pastor", because you have only one Pastor, Jesus"? Mark 7:8 "You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men".

99.9% of the churches do not have apostles and prophets because they don't want them. The pastors either don't believe they exist or they are afraid of the authority of apostles and prophets. The few churches that do have apostles and prophets still have a hard time functioning properly because the apostles don't understand their authority and responsibility. They try to be the pastor and the teacher, as well as the apostle.

I have seen the office of the apostle function properly on three occasions in my travels to the churches over the past 27 years. The apostle began the service, then after a little while he turned it over to the pastor or teacher. The apostle went over to the side and was out of sight for all practical purposes. But while the service was going on the apostle controlled the spirit of the service by his spiritual authority and prayers. No one noticed him, nor paid any attention to him, but I saw spiritually what was happening.

There are apostles and prophets of the churches - they sit in the office of apostle and prophet in the church. And there are apostles and prophets to the churches - they are like consultants whom the Lord uses to look at the operation of a church from an outsider's perspective and who can see problems that the ones in the churches cannot see.

When will we see the church operate like it is supposed to, under God's order of spiritual authority? Probably not until the Millenial period, which is coming shortly. We are beginning to see bits and pieces of it now, but I do not believe that we will see it operating properly until Jesus comes to rule and reign. Now man rules and reigns, that's why the churches are so pathetic.

Light in the Darkness

"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness does not understand it." John 1:5

Many of us have been trying to warn our brothers and sisters-in-the-Lord about what is coming upon this nation. We have tried to warn the churches about what is coming. We have been rejected, laughed at, scorned and ridiculed, argued with and have been looked down upon with contempt.  Few have listened to the message. Few will be prepared for what is coming, only the humble and meek of heart.

The light, the Holy Spirit, has been trying to shine in the darkness, the dead churches, but they have not understood it. The Light has been trying to shed light upon what is about to be poured out upon this country, but the darkness refuses to believe the warnings.

We've done what we can and, thank the Lord, some have listened. But the time is at hand when the warnings will cease. The time is at hand when great calamity upon calamity upon calamity will be poured out upon this nation and its people, the Lord's wrath will no longer be delayed.

This is a message that I drafted in early December, but the Lord would not let me publish it until today. That tells me time is very, very short, judgment is at hand.

Thank You!

This is not a prophetic message from the Lord, it is a personal message from my heart. I just want to thank all of you who have sent words of support and encouragement since I began this blog last year. Many of those messages have touched my heart very deeply, especiallly the ones in which people tell me how the Lord led them to this site and how it has changed their lives, how it has challenged them to get closer to the Lord and begin to prepare for the horrors that God is about to unleash upon this nation. I have also been touched by the number of people who have asked to be included on my mailing list for the blog.

When the Lord had me begin this blog in March of last year with the prophetic message "The Destruction of the USA", I had no idea how people would be led to the site to read it. The Lord had me post it on a number of so-called "Christian  forums" where the responses were unbelieveably negative and hostile. But I guess that enough people saw it and believed in the message, that they began to follow my blog and to send it to their friends. I have no idea how many people actually follow it now, but I have received responses from people literally all over the world. 98% of those responses are positive, are encouraging, are supportive and are confirming. I never in my wildest dreams expected anything like this. It has truly been humbling and heart-warming to know that the Lord has used this site to reach so many people so that they can draw closer to Him and prepare for what is coming very, very quickly upon this nation.

A prophet doesn't need people confirming the words the Lord gives him to speak - we speak them out of obedience to the Lord, regardless of the consequences. We expect opposition and attacks because most people won't listen. But it is comforting, encouraging and uplifting to hear from so many of you who tell me that the Lord has been speaking to you about the very things I've written about on my blog. It is nice to hear confirming voices. Thank you all!
