Civil War in the USA

Many have been talking about civil war coming to this nation, expecting it to be violent and bloody with many deaths. That may very well happen in the next few years, and I expect it to. But civil war has already begun in the USA and we didn't even realize it. It is not a violent and bloody war in the physical sense, but war nonetheless. It is a war of evil againist good, darkness against light.

Look at what has recently happened to the guy from Duck Dynasty because he said that the Bible teaches that homosexuals (I refuse to call them "gays" because there is nothing gay about the abomination of homosexuality) will not enter into the kingdom of Heaven. Now I don't watch tv and have never seen the show, but from what I've read recently it is about a Christian family of rednecks in Louisiana who close out almost every show in prayer over the dinner table. But since this guy spoke the truth he is being crucified in the news media. The same thing happened to the president of Chick-Fil-A last year. The news media hated George Bush because he spoke about how Jesus changed his life. They hated Sarah Palin because she was a Christian.

Any time that anyone dares to speak out against homosexuality they are called bigots, haters and intolerant. They lose their jobs, their businesses, their "friends". A bakery recently refused to cook a wedding cake for two homosexuals because it went against their religious beliefs. They were taken to court and found guilty of discrimination; they will probably close their business because of this. I have a dear brother-in-Christ who the Lord had me warn that the people in the firm he is working for are trying to set a trap for him because he is a servant of the Lord. True Christians in this nation are being attacked like never before, and it is only going to get worse.

Don't dare speak out against abortion because you will be persecuted because of it. Instead of calling it the slaughter of unborn babies, it is now called a "woman's right to chose" (to murder her unborn child).

The war has begun from tvs and movies, trying to (and succeeding) convince the population that illicit sex,homosexuality. pornography, drugs, vulgarity, profanity, adultery and violence are normal, natural and good things. Have you looked at the movie ratings lately? It is hard to find anything other than "R" rated movies. Even the "PG-13"" movies are filled with vulgarity, curse words and sex.

The war has already begun in our schools where Christian values are looked down upon and mocked. There are no more Christmas parties in schools, only Holiday parties. No more Christmas trees, only Holiday or Winter trees. Homosexuality is taught as an acceptable lifestyle in today's schools.

The war has begun in our military where witnessing about Jesus is not tolerated. Even chaplains are told not to discuss their faith with people they are counseling. Fourth grade children in Prosper, TX made Christmas cards for the bedridden veterans at the VA hospital in Dallas, but the VA refused them because they said "Merry Christmas".

The war has begun in our government where anything to do with Christianity is forbidden. Prayers before meetings are not allowed. When was the last time you heard a prayer before a sporting event? Even the antichrist in the Oval Office refused to participate in the National Day of Prayer.

The war has begun and it is a spiritual war, not a physical war. which, unfortunately, will be lost by the Christians in this country because few of them are repenting and turning from their wicked and evil ways. When an antichrist occupies the Oval Office as is now happening, nothing good will become of it. We were told by Jesus that we would be persecuted, and that has been happening all over the world for centuries, except here in this nation. But that has now changed and God's people in the USA will see even greater persecution even unto death in the next few years. He that endures to the end will be saved.

The Power Behind the Kings, Rulers and Kingdoms

A friend of mine recently suggested that I listen to Chuck Missler's teaching on Genesis. Usually the Lord lets me know that I am not to be influenced by the teaching of others because the Holy Spirit is my teacher. Rarely does He let me read religious books other than the Bible and even less frequently does He let me listen to sermons. But for some reason I felt I was supposed to listen to at least part of Missler's program on the computer. I listened to the first part and understood why I was supposed to. It opened my eyes to something I had never heard nor understood before before.

Ezekiel 28:11-19 NIV

11 The word of the Lord came to me: 12 “Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says:“‘You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. 13 You were in Eden,the garden of God, every precious stone adorned you: carnelian, chrysolite and emerald, topaz, onyx and jasper,lapis lazuli, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings[b] were made of gold ; on the day you were created they were prepared. 14 You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones.15 You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you. 16 Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence,and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones. 17 Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings. 18 By your many sins and dishonest trade you have desecrated your sanctuaries. So I made a fire come out from you, and it consumed you, and I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the sight of all who were watching. 19 All the nations who knew you are appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.’”

Now I've probably read that passage no less than fifty times in the last thirty years and, like many other things in the Bible, really didn't understand it. Presumably Ezekiel is prophesying to the king of Tyre. But upon closer inspection he cannot possibly be speaking to the king of Tyre. Obviously the king was not in the Garden of Eden. Ezekiel is prophesying to the power behind the king - satan. Now read it again with that in mind. Makes sense doesn't it!

Isaiah 14:12-17

12 How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! 13 You said in your heart, “I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. 14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.” 15 But you are brought down to the realm of the dead, to the depths of the pit. 16 Those who see you stare at you, they ponder your fate: “Is this the man who shook the earth and made kingdoms tremble, 17 the man who made the world a wilderness, who overthrew its cities and would not let his captives go home?”

In Chapter 14 Isaiah was initially prophesying regarding Babylon. However, this part of the passage is obviously directed to someone else - satan, the power behind Babylon. Now it makes sense, doesn't it?

In that teaching Chuck said that there were other passages like this in the Bible. So next time you run across something like this that you cannot understand from a human viewpoint, look at it from a spiritual perspective and see if it makes more sense.

Apostles and Prophets

Below is a letter I wrote to the pastor of Hillcrest Church in Dallas which I attended for about a year in 2006. Although some of it relates to a few of my experiences, it is really not about me but about the offices of apostle and prophet in the churches today. Unfortunately, few churches listen and therefore they do not have the spiritual authority they could have nor are they operating according to the Lord's order of authority.

Dear Mark,

Over the past several weeks you have taught one of the best and most balanced series on the gifts of the Holy Spirit.that I've ever heard. Most of what you've said I agree with you on. However, two weeks ago you taught on prophecy and also mentioned that prophets are not the same today as they were in Old Testament times. That is something that I disagree with you on and will explain why to you in this letter. Prophets are no different today than they were in past days.

When God first told me He was calling me to be a prophet back in early 1983, the first thing He told me I had to do was tell the pastor of Christian Life Fellowship in Plano - a man whom I loved, respected and thought highly of - that he was proud and materialistic. I was greatly troubled by this and spoke to both of the church elders, about this. One agreed with what I believed the Lord had shown me, the other didn't. A few days later I happened to mention this to another guy in the church who apparently mentioned it to his wife, who told it to others. By the time I called the pastor a few days later to tell him what the Lord had shown me, he had already heard what I was going to tell him. Before I could tell him what the Lord had instructed me to tell him, he said "I know what you're going to tell me and I refuse to accept it and I take full responsibility for not receiving it". This was a very hard thing for me because it split the relationship between he and I, but I knew what God had called me to do. Within a few weeks he resigned as pastor. The church no longer exists.

Several months after that God gave me my commission as a prophet: "I have set you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, to pluck up and to tear down, to overthrow and destroy, to build and to plant", the same as He gave to Jeremiah. He called me to be a prophet to the nations, to the churches, to the ministries, to kingdoms that men set up for themselves either in the church realm or the business world. Even my name, Clifford, was chosen by the Lord 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 I can warn the people when I see the enemy coming. My ministry is no different than Jeremiah's, I even spent seven weeks in a cistern filled with mud when Sojourn Church threw me out on the streets and I ended up at the Salvation Army for seven weeks, something for which Sojourn is paying a heavy price for.

Although God puts His prophets through hell, He is very hard on those who mistreat them. In 1984 I was living with an elderly woman, Jeannie, in Richardson. Jeannie had a son Earl, whom I was friends with, and a daughter Paula, both of them in their early 40s. After a few months Paula began treating me very contemptuously, with scorn and ridicule. She was afraid that her mother might put me in her will and give me some of "Paula's" money. I moved out of there in a few months and lost contact with the family. in 1988 I called up Carole, Earl's wife, and she mentioned that Paula was in the hospital with cancer. I told Carole that if Paula apologized to me that the Lord might heal her of cancer, but that if she didn't then she would surely die of cancer. Earl called me up the next day and asked me not to tell Paula that because he was her spiritual counselor and didn't believe that it was from the Lord. I haven't spoken to anyone in the family since then. About a year later I saw Paula's obituary in the newspaper. About two years after that I saw Earl's obituary in the paper.

In 1983 and 1984 I attended Central Park Church in Richardson, a charasmatic church of about 700-1000 members. The pastor had been warned by the other prophets in the church about his controlling spirit and how he quenched the work of the Holy Spirit. He wouldn't listen. When it came time for me to warn him, he came against me very strongly and wouldn't listen. I shook the dust off my sandals at him and left the church. Central Park Church no longer exists. That man now pastors a church of about 40 members and is more arrogant, controlling and prouder then ever.

In 1986 I was living in Phoenix and attended Foundation Fellowship Church, a church of about 1500 members. Ron was the apostle/pastor of the church, a guy in his mid 30s and a man who had a heart like King David's. This was a church that I loved, it was my family, my brothers and sisters whom I felt very close to. In May, 1986 the Lord moved me back to Dallas. Several months later I called a friend of mine at the church and learned that the church had recently split, with half of the people and leaders forming another church under People Of Destiny's banner. Ron stayed with Foundation Fellowship. The Lord had me write a number of encouraging, comforting and uplifting letters to Ron over the next few months, with one of them containing a word of caution about how to take care of sojourners whom the Lord would send their way.

The next year God sent me back to Phoenix for two weeks. When I returned to Dallas the Lord had me write two more letters of comfort and encouragement to Ron, along with another word of caution (a little stronger this time) about taking care of sojourners. The next year the Lord sent me back to Phoenix for another two weeks. Ron had not listened to my words of caution and refused to do so a third time. When I returned to Dallas the anger of the Lord burned within me against Ron and I sent him another letter, a very strong rebuke this time. I gave him the verses about the landowner who planted a vineyard and rented the property to some farmers. When he sent his servants to collect what was due him, the renters beat and killed his servants. What will this landowner do to these wretched people? He will kick them off the land and rent it to others! I never heard from Ron, but about a year later I called a friend from that church and she told me that the church dissolved and that the building now sits empty.

In 1988 I was living in Kemp, Texas, near Cedar Creek Lake. One day the Lord impressed upon me to go to Faith Church in Kaufman. I had never been there before, but I went there for services the next Sunday. It was a small church of perhaps 250 - 300 people meeting in an old building near downtown Kaufman. The pastor was a man named Scotty. They were talking that Sunday about the new building they were going to build on Hwy 175 in Kaufman. The Lord had me go and meet Scotty later in the week and tell him that the Lord was giving them the new building to minister to people who were traveling down the highway, and that people would come to them who were hurting and in need in various ways. If they needed gas or food, then the church was to provide that for them. If they needed a place to stay, then the church was to provide that for them. If they needed counseling or prayer, then the church was to do that for them. I moved back to Dallas shortly after that and had no more contact with Scotty. About three years later, a friend of mine who lived in Kemp told me that the church had built their new building on Hwy 175, but that it now sat empty and the church no longer existed. I never spoke to anyone from that church, but I know why it fell apart.

As the prophets of old anointed people for service, usually as kings, so also do the prophets of today anoint people for service. I have anointed a number of apostles and prophets for service (and/or told them what their calling was) and, many times, what that office entailed, the authority and responsibilities that came with it. I have anointed one man, David, as senior pastor of the remnants of Church On The Rock. I don't APPOINT them, I simply ANOINT them and/or tell them what their calling is, God is the one who appoints them.

As a watchman, God has given me special insight into the hearts and/or intentions of many people. There have been several instances where the Lord has shown me that people in leadership positions were actually spies from the camp of the antichrist. "If Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light, is it any wonder that his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness?" No one has yet believed me when I've told them that a certain elder, pastor or someone else in the church is actually a spy from the camp of the enemy, but God has proven me right in every case thus far. I've seen people who I knew were wolves in sheep's clothing and who were there to do nothing but cause trouble. My job is to warn the leaders of the church and let them handle the situation as the Lord leads them to, if they will listen to the Lord. Most don't listen, and because of that many of their sheep have been led astray or devoured by the enemy.

Matt 23:34 "Therefore I am sending you prophets and wise men and teachers. Some of them you will kill and crucify. Others you will flog in your synagogues and pursue from town to town." Does that sound like the prophets of today are any different from the ones of the O.T., aren't we treated the same today as back then? Didn't the people persecute and kill the prophets in the O.T.? Doesn't this verse say that the same thing will happen to us in this generation? Why do you think the prophets of today are any different than the ones of old?

This next topic is a very sensitive one in churches - the order of spiritual authority in the churches today. 1Cor 12:28 "And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers...." 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...." Eph 2:20 "The church is built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets....." Nowhere does the Bible say that God has appointed pastors as the head of the churches, in fact the Bible only mentions the term "pastors" once, that is in Eph 4:11.

In every instance 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 “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 a 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." the only priests that are legitimate today are those from the tribe of Levi. But since there is no temple and no burnt offerings, priests have no place today. Catholic priests are in direct disobedience to this. None of them are from the tribe of Levi and therefore they are all illegitimate. But that is another story which I won't go into at this time.

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. (Hmmm, that flies in the face of Catholicism, doesn't it?) 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".

Mark you are one of the finest men that I’ve known and have the true heart of a shepherd. I do not want you to take any of this as being critical of you personally, rather please look at the writings in this letter as spiritual wisdom that the Lord wants the churches as a whole to see so that the Body of Christ can be returned to its original purpose, plan and power.

Just as a side note, the letter was brought before the Board of Elders in that church and I was told that they could not argue with anything in it. But they did not change the way they did things. Several months later while I was in the prayer room in the church the Lord showed me that there was an attack coming upon the church. If I had had a trumpet I would probably blown it all over the church to warn them. He also told me that if the church rebuilt the prayer walls of the church then the attack could be diverted. (They used to have a 24/7 board in the prayer room on which people would fill in their names to pray for a certain hour or hours for the church on certain days. During the time of the previous pastor it was always filled up. But the current pastor let it go downhill). If the walls were not rebuilt then when the attack came there would be infighting within the walls, many people would be wounded and many would leave the church. I told the leadership of the church exactly this, including two elders (one of them the elder in charge of prayer), but no one listened. The attack came and exactly what I told them happened - there was infighting among the church members, many people were hurt and many people left the church. The church no longer exists, and it was a large non-denominational, charasmatic church in Dallas.

We Have Left the Lord

No one can doubt that this nation has left the ways of the Lord and turned to evil. The Bible speaks of what happens when we don't give the Lord the credit and praise for our prosperity. It speaks of what will happen when a nation does evil in the sight of the Lord.

Deuteronomy 8:17 - You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.”

Deuteronomy 8:19-20 - If you ever forget the Lord your God and follow other gods and worship and bow down to them, I testify against you today that you will surely be destroyed. 20 Like the nations the Lord destroyed before you, so you will be destroyed for not obeying the Lord your God.

Deuteronomy 28:25-26 - The Lord will cause you to be defeated before your enemies. You will come at them from one direction but flee from them in seven, and you will become a thing of horror to all the kingdoms on earth. 26 Your carcasses will be food for all the birds and the wild animals, and there will be no one to frighten them away.

Deuteronomy 28:37 - You will become a thing of horror, a byword and an object of ridicule among all the peoples where the Lord will drive you.

Deuteronomy 28:41 - You will have sons and daughters but you will not keep them, because they will go into captivity.

Deuteronomy 28:47-51 - Because you did not serve the Lord your God joyfully and gladly in the time of prosperity, 48 therefore in hunger and thirst, in nakedness and dire poverty, you will serve the enemies the Lord sends against you. He will put an iron yoke on your neck until he has destroyed you. 49 The Lord will bring a nation against you from far away, from the ends of the earth, like an eagle swooping down, a nation whose language you will not understand, 50 a fierce-looking nation without respect for the old or pity for the young. 51 They will devour the young of your livestock and the crops of your land until you are destroyed. They will leave you no grain, new wine or olive oil, nor any calves of your herds or lambs of your flocks until you are ruined.

Deuteronomy 32:5 - They are corrupt and not his children; to their shame they are a warped and crooked generation

Judges 3:7-8 - The Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord; they forgot the Lord their God and served the Baals and the Asherahs. 8 The anger of the Lord burned against Israel so that he sold them into the hands of Cushan-Rishathaim king of Aram Naharaim, to whom the Israelites were subject for eight years.

Judges 3:12 - Again the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and because they did this evil the Lord gave Eglon king of Moab power over Israel.

Judges 4:1-2 - Again the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, now that Ehud was dead. 2 So the Lord sold them into the hands of Jabin king of Canaan, who reigned in Hazor.

Judges 6:1 - The Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and for seven years he gave them into the hands of the Midianites.

Judges 13:1 - Again the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, so the Lord delivered them into the hands of the Philistines for forty years.

1 Samuel 12:9 - But they forgot the Lord their God; so he sold them into the hand of Sisera, the commander of the army of Hazor, and into the hands of the Philistines and the king of Moab, who fought against them.

Recently on a fishing website a guy asked about the movie "Gravity" because the youth director in his church wanted to take the youth group to see it. I responded to him that the movie has several four letter words in it that are not suitable for kids. His response was "Our youth director picked it out. She will allow anything but r rated. I really wanted to see it." I then said "If your youth group is part of a church then you need a new youth director. If she approves movies that have cursing and profanity in them then she needs to be removed." He answered "Well you have your opinion and I respect that, but you can't turn on network tv without some cussing. She would not allow a movie that was nothing, but violence and lots of cussing, but I doubt there were ten instances of cussing. There are High School kids not children so there is a different level of what is appropriate. Heck the first movie they showed last night was cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2 and they said damn in it." I then told him "My opinion certainly doesn't matter, but God's does. 'Woe unto him that causes even one of these little ones to stumble........'"

It is not only what our nation as a whole has done, but the churches have bought into the deceit of the evil one as well and are now following a false god and false idols, they are certainly not following the Lord our God. What do you think God is going to do about this? Do you think He will let it slide for another generation? No.

The Corpse Flower

On Sunday in Washington D.C. a corpse flower bloomed. The bloom smells like rotting human flesh. It is no coincidence that this happened in the nation's capitol at this time because the politicians, starting in the White House and down to the lowliest congressman, smell like dead, rotting flesh. Honor and integrity, morals and character, truth and justice no longer exist in our capitol city. Instead pride, arrogance, greed, treachery, deceit, immorality and narcissism have taken over. It is like a stinking dead corpse. Indeed, all the things that used to make us a great nation are dead. What exists now is nothing but rotting flesh and dead hearts.

The following is an excerpt from an article in the Washington Post on Monday:

"Garden officials expect “peak smell” to occur early Monday morning, and the flower to remain open for an estimated 24 to 48 hours. Then it will begin to collapse on itself. The last corpse flower to bloom at the U.S. Botanic Garden was in 2007."

Notice the part that says that it will begin to collapse upon itself. Notice also that this flower bloomed in 2007 and the economy began to collapse upon itself shortly after. I believe that this time we will begin to see not only the nation's economy begin to collapse, but also the nation itself.

Judgment Delayed

On Nov. 1, 2012 I wrote about Hurricane Sandy and this is part of what I put on my blog:

Thursday, November 1, 2012
Hurricane Sandy

On September 1 last year I wrote a message titled "Continuing Catastrophes" on this blog. In it I stated that I believed a hurricane was going to hit this nation like the "fist of God". I thought it was going to happen within a few weeks of writing that message.

Soon after I wrote that message I was speaking to a dear brother-in-Christ who is one of God's hidden prayer warriors, along with his wife. He was telling me that sometimes God had them praying against storms and other "natural" catastrophes, and that sometimes the prayers of the faithful caused disasters to be diverted or lessened.

That was the case a few weeks later when an epic storm hit the sparsely populated coast of Alaska instead of the northwestern states of this nation which are heavily populated. I stated at that time that there may be another hurricane that would hit this nation in the near future and cause great destruction. That happened this week when Sandy hit the northeast coast and caused untold damage. Many were killed and it is estimated that the cost of Sandy will exceed $20 billion. It literally hit this nation like the "fist of God".

What all this showed me is that sometimes God delays His judgment because of the prayers of His people. This is what I am certain has happened to what the Lord had planned for the solar storms hitting this nation and Obama surrendering this country to the Russians before the end of his first term in office. The Lord's prayer warriors have interceded and asked for more time for the Christians of the USA to prepare and to give this nation another opportunity to repent. But, just like the epic storm being diverted and then a year later Sandy hitting this nation, God's judgment will come, just later that we thought.

There is no doubt in my mind at this point that the Lord had originally planned for Obama to be a one-term president and for the solar storms to hit in 2011 or 2012. But He sometimes does delay His plans in order to give the people more time. I thought I was wrong about Obama not being re-elected, that I had missed the Lord, and I apologized for that. However, I am now fairly certain that I had been correct in what I originally said and that God simply delayed His judgment for a short while. What I had prophesied about the solar storms and Obama surrendering this nation to the Russians is still going to happen in God's timing, after a short delay.

The latest I heard about the solar storms is that they are now expected to hit in the next few months, instead of in the past two years. We will wait and see how and when God does these things.
