Light House In The Blue Ridge Prophecy

Recently, I was going through a few prophecies published here at NWP, and was encouraged by this article originally published back in 2016. Where the prophecies and commentary appear even more relevant now in 2020. Read and be refreshed God is moving mightily!

In January of 2008 we were living on the east coast as a result of a prayer mandate that was given my husband and I, in 2004. This mandate took our family on a journey that would lead us across America from west to east. Back tracking the trail of a pioneer ancestry. In the summer of 07′  we began to sense a “turn of the tide” while working for an agency with properties on the beach, and began a fast and prayer for direction. That fall we were given the Gathering Storm Vision that began to position us for the changes to come, and we started to down size our budget. In January of 08′ I had a dream one night, and saw a tsunami burst upon the shores of the Eastern Seaboard, breaking through a pair of sliding glass doors. I knew this was symbolic to an event that would affect every American in the United States. This tsunami began as what looked like a whirlwind, that come out of the North Atlantic, it hit an office building in North West Africa, engulfed it into flames, and then manifested as a tsunami that suddenly crashed into the United States. Obviously this was not a natural storm. Sleepers were immediately over whelmed, and never awakened, but slept under the deluge. I saw another person I knew that was aware, but not watching sink into the waters waist deep, slapping around trying to gain some kind of equilibrium, both were Christians. I could only cry out a warning as I ran to higher ground. Later, the one I saw in water half submerged, would lose half their life savings in the stock market, in the months to come.

While driving down I 77 in the fall of 2008 after 10 weeks in the Smoky Mountains God showed us something that he was about to do; the most amazing revelation given us was how that another move of God would transform the Church from being as a train on a rail, to becoming as an 8 point antlered stag gliding across the landscape, un daunted by its terrain. It would govern a new day in prophetic proclamation, and scribing, by the Spirit of might and power. We knew our relocation away from the coast was for the purposes of the prophetic, not to get away from the shores of the Atlantic. However; later, because of that dream and a vision in 2010, that warned us of much trouble to be suffered on the coasts of our nation, we continued to voice our concerns with family and friends.

After 10 weeks in the Smoky Mountains we would be on the road for a season, to be settled a year later in the foothills of the Blue Ridge, after some traveling prayer assignments.

This was preceded by a dream that we had a seat number assignment of 12 on flight 77, on a 777. Who knew at the time how much I-77 would be a part of our lives as we would move to higher ground in the outskirts of the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains 30 minutes from the parkway. We would be assigned a prayer block by the Holy Spirit there, where podcasts, prayer ministry, and a website would reach 179* countries with the prophetic word, through out the world. You know, God has his very public places, and then He has his secret places. Some say the dome of the rock rests upon the altar of God, some say it’s not really there at all, but several feet over. God is able to lift us above the defilement of controversy. He that dwells in the secret place of the most high dwells in the shadow of the almighty. In the 1st tsunami dream prior to the crash of 2008 we were left standing on higher ground; still, I remember thinking that I wished I had been more prepared. The people I saw slapping around in the water up to their waist, lost half their life savings a year later in the days of the crash. But the sleeper in the dream remained sleeping completely submerged, under the deluge. Recently, the lord showed me this vision all over again as a review, but this time the camera lens, so to speak, was widened to a panoramic view, and I saw a sea dragon spit up upon the shores of the Eastern Seaboard, to the North of where I stood at the TIME OF THE FIRST TSUNAMI, before the Washington regime change, that headed up the foreign (spirit) invasion we wrote about later. This was over the North East coast influencing much in that region including Washington DC., causing many sons, of the King of Pride, to rise up and become empowered to continue in their darkness. Continual prayer for those in power would be the only thing that could keep this darkness from overtaking them. That they could even think straight. I’m not convinced that much has not entered in and influenced many.

A Commentary On The Light House and Popular East Coast Tsunami Prophecies

It is no surprise that another wave is out to sea. However, as when a man awakens from a drunken stupor and stumbles out of his flooding house, so will it be for those who have not been awake, but yet have been lost in the comforts of their slumber. They shall be the cause of violent social tremors, following the siesmos. For as a drunken man is violently shaken out of his stupor and begins punching, so shall these in their sleeper’s fog do the same. A movement of tremors and after shocks, after a RUDE AWAKENING when their reality sets in, though some shall come to the Lord, others will fall into the night. However, many shall be of those of another wave, and of an awakening of the most blessed kind. This tumult shall be of that where those from afar shall look and see, as a ship in blackened waters, storm tossed- they shall watch, as they are tossed about, and suddenly, shall they see where they have been watching, and hoping for a sign, to define the shores of where the First Lady stands, the Church OF THE LIVING GOD who dwells in AMERICA, at first a glimmer, and increasingly, a lasting hope, a light in the midst of darkness, a city on a hill top, the Church in America will be found standing- when thought missing … and this harbor of rest is in the MIDST of HER for the Lord God in the midst of HER is mighty, and what was once rolling hills, will become rolling waves that shall render Christ’s Church as a beacon, heaved up upon the shoulders of the revived Church who dwells in America. For many waters are many peoples. Now I saw the rolling hills become rolling waves’ and the mountains of North Carolina was as the shore.

Now I’ve heard of those who have spoken of a natural tsunami, and this I don’t see, other than what may hit upon the coast, understand that a great shaking will create a deluge of circumstances that will cause a stampede to the cross of Christ.

The light house shows us the way to salvation, this is the city where the lamb is the light, Christ in us the hope and glory. While this beacon is seen near and far, it is the only one I saw from my vantage point. It seemed to be a light house that served the whole Eastern Seaboard of the United States to the Mountain Range known as the Appalachians, and North and South to a point I cannot determine. At one point the rolling hills as waves raised up so high its beams reached across the continent and beyond to the great northern lands. I know this is not a single congregation of saints, nor a single group, or ministry. It is Christ’s Church the whole of it, manifesting this beautiful beacon from the eastern portion of North America, how far beyond I cannot see. Christ’s Church (not the denomination) but the whole of it shall cause this representation to shine HIS light, and emanate HIS glory. His voice, the voice of the bride groom shall be heard in her, and the voice of the bride. As the beacon pulsates shafts of light, this light went out into much of the world. I keep wanting to say a representation of the Bride that many in the world want to support, have a hand in. It’s just hard to say. We look through a glass darkly.

A second discussion of the Light House

Now for those who have been awake, and have been making themselves ready, they possess an higher ground. Pray that you are possessing God’s higher ground. For they will be the voice, they will have the answers, they will light the way, if we will only believe God in this hour. God has said it and I believe it to be so. When my family settled where we are now I saw a vision of a light house upon a sea of rolling hills inland as far as the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Lord said the people of this light house are one in the Spirit and they are one in the Lord. They are of many tongues and of many nations but some how, some way, their prayers are keeping this light burning for a people … I’m telling you now, no man can touch this, not a one can define it, for I hear the LORD speaking- the words are SPIRIT … I’m saying yes a great wave shall reach to the NC foothills that will HEAVE up and raise this LIGHT HOUSE, enabling it to be in view for many, and I’m saying it will be lifted up because of that which shall be visited upon the eastern shore, this siesmos called the great QUAKER, this thing, that may be as the first or something other .. upon its heals shall come forth a desired event known as the sleeper’s AWAKENING. This light house will be the result of an convergence of some sort and will be a great light to a nation that is bound on ship wrecking itself into its own shores. In its light profound darkness shall be kept at bay.

And I hear the Lord saying that once and for all the works of men will be ripped from their hands who are bent on putting their hand to my ark, for THEY imagine they are appointed to steady its tipping. This light house will roll a top the rolling hills, as though it is rolling a top the waves of the sea, a siesmos, a wave, a tsunami named the QUAKER, known as the Awakener. It will AWAKEN the sleeper, this time around.

I hear the Lord saying I have called for a convergence of moves, winds, waves, and many streams that will lift this lighthouse to be a beacon for the nations, and it will be a light, that great light, the true light, the Lady – that true lady the vessel of the Lord, the fire and the glory is in her midst, the oil of her burning is crushed of olives pure … of people’s and nations and tongues and she will be a representation of the lambs wife in the earth, though they faltered the last time around. As the tipping of the ark cost a man his life for trying to steady it, let not that one who thinks he can undo my doing, suppose that he will. I see a man’s hand with a gold ring on it attempt to upright the light house listing to and fro. God says, NO, and the hand moves back. “To many have reached to steady what I have caused to list”, says God. “They have robbed the people to know my power, and in their own power have meddled with what they ought not to have touched. Stern private warnings will begin to become public rebukes in the days to come regarding bail outs at all fronts, from the living room, to the board room and everywhere in between. First and for most this in my house. This is my house, says the Lord. Stakes and claims, borders and covenants, even the Kingdom will be taken from one, and given to another, in these days when one goes to press his agenda rather than seeking out mine. Only repentance will secure their place, and place for them their securities. The convergence is not of men but of God, it is not of one, but of many; it is not of a club, or of a clan, nor has it a name; what is mine will be of mine says the Lord, and the counsels of men are to small for it. A mystery will be unwrapped in its enigma. They had their ace in the hole, mine is risen from the dead. The voice of the bridegroom will be heard in the land and 10 shall arise to greet him. The ones who paid the price for the oil shall have reserve, to meet him.

…. says the Lord, “To many have tried to touch my holy mountains for commerce, and I shall remove my lamp stands from the place where they white knuckle their holdings. For a land is sanctified by me, and cursed the same when they have defiled it, I make clean what is unclean and only I have the power to do so. What makes holy ground holy? Is it not I says the lord? They shall not, they shall not, no more, prosper in it. I will bless. This will be so that man will take his name off of it, and gladly replace it with mine, for I led captivity captive and I gave GIFTS unto men.

November 2015- January 2016

Today, while praying for America, for Gods people in this country- and while repenting for our sins, I saw another great wave hitting the Eastern Seaboard. For I saw one do so in 2007, in a DREAM. This tsunami in 2007 was not a natural one it began as a tornado, that come out of the North Atlantic, it hit an office building in North West Africa, engulfed it into flames, and then manifested as a tsunami that crashed into the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. Obviously this was not a natural storm. Sleepers were immediately over whelmed, but never awakened, those passively aware were swept off their feet, the deluge sunk them to their waist, those watching the thing from the time it came out of the north, warned as they ran to higher ground. While many have heard or seen in dreams, a tsunami hitting the shores of America, I am not completely sure that all of them speak of a natural wave, or tsunami; though I wouldn’t count that out.

I’m not convinced these waves are not of the nature of those I’ve seen. The waves I saw was the economic crash of 2008.

The individuals I saw overcome to their waist in this dream lost half their savings. Later, we were moved to higher ground, not to get away from the Atlantic, but to be positioned strategically for a new phase of prayer and ministry. This was done after being released from our initial call to prayer while living on the Eastern Seaboard. I believe a deluge of seismic proportions is coming, is mounting up, as we speak .. but what I saw in prayer this day, is that this wave, greater than the one I saw in 2007, black and ominous, reached over the Virginian Shores to Washington DC., and swallowed this same dragon, whom I saw was spit out there in 2007, and gulped him up, and pulled him down into the deep, taking him out to sea. This seismos, created a shaking that awakened all the remaining sleepers in the land. This dragon taken out was not the great dragon but he’s of those that knows his time is short. Will he join his remaining heads and resurface among the nations? This dragon will be bigger, and more dangerous than ever imagined. I do not believe this sea dragon was over one man, but over many. The world’s Intercessors, America’s intercessors, must pray for America in this season for the Spirit Of Elijah is here to turn the heart of the Fathers towards the Children, and the heart of the children towards their Fathers. TO TAKE UP THE VACUUME OF THIS POWER WHEN THE Quaker Wave comes. If not then Malachi’s warning will come upon the nation. America needs a Father, there is no father but God, the Spirit of Elijah who makes straight the paths of the Lord is calling them to take the helms of our nation. A Father builds a legacy for His Sons and Daughters to dwell in, that they might prosper generations after him.

The spirit of Elijah, the heart of the Father desires to fill the void of the sons of pride in the land, in a time unprecedented of all her times, America will be humbled, she will be humbled in an eye for an eye kind of justice that will begin to divide, deeper, the land. However, they that trust in their God, who have been watching and warning, theirs shall be the eye of the storm, and the calm that will counteract insanity. A voice of Holy Reasoning will truly be heard in the midst of chaos. I see this amazing whirlwind accomplishing a dual purpose, with G force winds, pulling in many to the calm of the eye of the storm while spitting out those that reak havoc in its path. For whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Arise and shine oh my people, my brilliant light shall rest upon you.

All though a fearful thing rises from the Black Sea to swallow you, and tower over my elected ones, to make them seem so  very small, know that I am your strong tower and fortress, your high wall, He that trusts in me will not be made ashamed, I Am that I Am. I Am HE. All of those near and far who are mine, natural Israel, this is true for all of you. My light is come. Did I not say they will come and bow? They will come, they will be drawn by my light and glory, that rest upon the faithful, they will come to your arising. The will stand to great you as one stands facing the morning sky in expectation of the sun rise. Those that sit in darkness will see a great light. Shall not those who look for me, be found of me? Shall they not be drawn of me as a lamp draws those that desire to see? This will be a beauty, and a joy for Her that emanates MY glory.

Kings will have a change of course, rulers will opt in, and then out again, for some will see what is at stake, they will peer into the abyss, and back up from the edge.

Now it is time for my people to know that their spiritual geography and advancement of my Kingdom is the cause of world systems writhing, and that I am in control. As I Am so are you in the earth, a great manifestation of my power is the cause of much tumult in demon possessed systems through out the earth, the sound of your voice as one shall cause a stampede of the unclean, and fearful workers of darkness, to throw themselves into the deep like the pigs of legion. Anything to get away from my voice, and my face, men will hide in the rocks at the end of this, you will see, crying depart, depart from us! No you not they knew you were coming? Know you not they saw this generation arriving upon the shores, of the age that is this day and hour? You must bind the spirit of suicide off the masses in these end times. It is you that will let what is letted. Perhaps they may spare themselves of Satan’s lies. Nevertheless, those systems will be eradicated of Satanic controls that bow to the brightness of your dawn. Your dawn emanates wisdom. The Lord Jesus the master key possessor would say to you, the key to understanding these systems, is to know they are covenants and agreements made of men.

Men have the gift of free will, many would choose life if they saw it burst upon them. Like the man who inflicted himself in the tombs.

These will go to their own, their kin, their likeness- of their vocation, and declare, “I Have seen a great light.” Should they not be filled full of my Spirit en mass after being delivered the same way? In this day it is by all means possible. The earth groans for the manifestation of the sons of God, and you MY FAITHFUL, will satisfy her travail. Let not the rising sea cause you to be fearful, nor the whirl wind make you afraid. You are the cause of these manifestations, my people full of my Spirit cause satanic systems to writhe. Don’t be ASTONISHED! You’re my people, my vessels, my Spirit Is in an occupancy where ever you stand amidst world systems. Rest assured I Am with you, to the end of the age. Be of good cheer. Remember, I was anointed with joy above my fellows, for I knew my Father was God, as I faced a dark night before securing for you your MORNING. Find your rest with me, and know your Father is God!

*Note: since this prophetic word, there has been others who have said that a tsunami would reach to the mountains in Carolina. In my opinion such a thing would be an EEE. Earth Extinction Event. I don’t agree with that. Never in history has such a title wave gone more than 30 miles inland. I believe the lighthouse and shore line is speaking to an open heaven of ministry, from America’s Blue Ridge region. Revealing trouble and unrest on the east coasts, as well as times of tribulation in the late hour representing the stormy waves, I saw. However the greater the storm the higher the light house would lift. I’m taking that as a personal word as well. No matter how dark your night His light is lifted Higher! So I’m not taking this vision as a tidal wave believing such a thing would go inland so far. I think science supports that the earth could not sustain a wave coming inland over 250 miles and 80 stories high. For even what happened in December of 2004 in Indonesia and Thailand, that tidal wave rocked the earth on its axes. I do believe, at least parts of the eastcoast shore line will experience a catastrophic event that will for ever change it. As described in the dreams I was given between 1982-1989.

From Still Waters to Eagles Wings

imageSurrender yourself to me in Holy abandonment, says the Lord. Let go of those things you have embraced that centered you- but, are not of me. These built-in stabilizers are old garments sown to the new, and many works are in a perpetual ripping, says the Lord of Hosts, who leads HIS people beside still waters to restore their soul. From this place of an organic gathering they mount up with wings as eagles, they run, without being wearied, they walk and not faint. Nothing more than the still waters is needed to find renewal, refreshing, and revival. This is simply drinking from the waters that I have led you to, what ever landscape you find them in. I am the still waters of your soul. Drink of me, no matter where you are. For there I am, also. Is it not in that place where my image is most clear, reflecting as a mirror? Daily you shall see yourself  as I  do in the light of the Son, if you take the time to do so. Lean in and drink of me as it were from still waters, and I will restore your soul. One day, my armor clad ones- you will learn nor teach war no more! You will lead the nations in exchanging their war equipment for tools of the harvest. Where a country will no longer fall into eternity with out CHRIST, IN ONE HOUR. Rather, entire nations will be harvested for the Kingdom of God. Masses of people once reeling in wars and famines will be fed, in one hour. They will beat their spears into pruning hooks, their swords into plows shears, nation will not rise against nation, nor will they learn war any more. The glory of the latter house will be greater than the former. Trust in this saying, you will see. The intervals of rest and journey, will bring you there. Resting in my provision, resting in my presence. Journeying in my way, progressing in my kingdom. This with demonstration and in power. 

Isaiah 2:4
New International Version
He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.

Strange Eagle, Landing

 

Jude 1:11-14

… these men revile the things which they do not understand; and the things which they know by instinct, like unreasoning animals, by these things they are destroyed. Woe to them! For they have gone the way of Cain, and for pay they have rushed headlong into the error of Balaam, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.…These are the men who are hidden reefs in your love feasts when they feast with you without fear, caring for themselves; clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, doubly dead, uprooted; wild waves of the sea, casting up their own shame like foam; wandering stars, for whom the black darkness has been reserved forever. It was also about these men that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones.

imageIn the Church, shadows are diminishing, so with them shades of grey. They that love the shadows, and live in flickering casts of light, even in the spectrum of those variances… are they who love darkness. This is what we have before us in these days, gathering shadows going into the night, while the light of the GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, surges ever brighter. Isaiah 60. I’ve said this once before in another publication and I’ll say it again, CHRIST Church will be astounded at who will walk out of darkness, right before their eyes, and greet them as they step into the Kingdom of God’s dear SON! At the same time we will be awestruck at those we thought we knew stepping out of that brightness, and glory, to fade into the night. The time has come and we are in it. Right in the middle of it.

Prayerfully, intercessors will delay some judgements earmarked for this coming fall, while a pressing disease will be battled at every portal and border seeking immunity of our immune system. Defying logic, we will make strides in immune system health but fail to carry this same design of defence over to our nation’s borders. This malignancy of profound blindness, coexisting with the all seeing electronic eye will continue to astonish those who have eyes to see, and ears to hear. There are no walls to breach, nor watchman to set them on, no stealth is needed to enter the lazy ports. The trespassers, who violate the law, have no inner restraints. Will they not easily join up with lawlessness that plagues the land, already?

If continual prayer and fasting does not prevail, this will be the enemy that hides among us. A foreign set of ideals to flare up against our own when we stand for those ideals in America. Likewise, and equally alarming, our foreign policy in the Middle East will need prayer, without end, throughout the spring of 2015 and beyond, as war looms on the horizon. This as the 100 year anniversary of World War I approaches us with a similar occurrence of a total eclipse due  August 21, 2017 A Total Solar Eclipse similar to the one that tracked across the U.S., in  the same way June 8, 1918. Just a few months after America’s entry in the war, and the onslaught of the Spanish Flu pandemic, that took over 500,000 American lives. Is America cycling into another pattern of wars and pandemics, accented by blood moons, and solar eclipses? Joel 2 …And there shall be signs in the heavens and the earth …

Two years and three months ago, in a dream that announced Obama’s second term,  I saw Syria flare up in the Middle East and bleed into all the countries it has now, Turkey, Iraq, Iran. Even beneath, below, above, and side to side of it. While the American Bald Eagle found itself in the form of Obama, lying motionless on its back in the sand. This dream is how the Lord revealed to me that  Mr. Obama would be elected a second term, which has been documented on various prophetic sites, just prior to his election. More recently, another prophetic marker mentioned in the article makes its appearance, this regards our foreign policy dealing with Cuba. Right after Cuba is seen in the dream, the American Bald Eagle in the Form of President Obama runs out toward the middle of the Middle East. You will have to click the link below to read about this prophetic dream. There you will see where we are at in the time line because of the mention of Cuba and the blow back we seem to be suffering regarding Libya’s Gaddafi, right now.

This for me, highlighted once again, the accuracy of this dream given to me October 17, 2012. Called Strange Bird Obama’s Second Term. As best as I could tell the time line for what could be a grave military failure, or, a foreign policy disaster taking place right in the center of the Middle East, is landing in the middle of President Obama’s second term. Because I believe (nourish the expectation) that God raises up intercessors to pray for governments and nations in order to save lives. He doesn’t give us dreams to entertain us. But, desires that we would partner with HIM in these end-times, for the saving of the lost.  He did with Nineveh and Sodom and Gomorrah. The Spirit of the Lord  let his friends in on what is coming, like He did with Abraham, who was a friend to God, and like Jesus did with His disciples warning them of the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. They were his disciples and companions.

God sent Jonah to warn Nineveh because HIS heart was moved with compassion over all the innocents in the land. They responded to Jonah’s preaching, and judgement was delayed. We are moving toward something so big, it is beyond our understanding; but, we know it intuitively. Surely, God does nothing with out revealing it to His prophets before hand. Many, still do not understand the gravity and responsibility of that privilege. Jesus told the disciples to pray their flight would not be in winter, for then tribulation like no other would be suffered, nothing like it ever known. Should we pray any less, for now the green tree has become dry?

Yet, we are those ones referred to by Daniel, (even those found through out the entire age of the Church) who did/ and shall do great exploits, that is THEY WHO KNOW THEIR GOD! Last week I specifically asked the Father to turn over certain high profile injustices that I felt fed-up with in my spirit. He answered that prayer so specifically, I could not deny that my intercession was heard by God in this matter. He is waiting for us to partnership with HIM and become a part of the 2nd Book of Acts, in these end-tiimes. We are seeing storms deferred, as well as draughts lifted, and crop yields improve, rather than fail as predicted. God is able to make a difference through us if we will stand up and be the Church Triumphant!! Amen and Amen.

Proverbs 11:14
For lack of guidance a nation falls, but victory is won through many advisers.

Proverbs 15:21
Folly brings joy to one who has no sense, but whoever has understanding keeps a straight course.

Proverbs 15:23
A person finds joy in giving an apt reply– and how good is a timely word!

Proverbs 20:18
Plans are established by seeking advice; so if you wage war, obtain guidance.

Regarding the dream, Strange Bird, I believe that what I saw was correct; but, interpreting the vision correctly is often a challenge, that seers face. I know this for a fact- from Libya to Afghanistan and everything in between I saw this STRANGE BIRD wearing the same hats that we often have seen both Gahdaffi and Castro wearing, and now it is a little unsettling that many are accusing the presidency of the U.S. as a dictatorship. That would mean our foreign policy is that of a dictatorship, of sorts. It was that same hat the Strange Bird was wearing, in the dream of

October 17, 2012, when he landed flat on his back in the middle of this volatile region, silhouetted against a spreading conflict that was bleeding like water colours across the map from Syria, into Jordan, Turkey, Iraq, Iran and reaching for Kuwait …

The silhouette I described that I saw in the dream, lay there motionless with no one coming to help. Understand what was written in this article was over two years four months ago and published the November 5th 2012 and again January 2013. Prophetically describing much of what has transpired in 2014. Pray that our troops have nothing to do with what looks like a serious catastrophe for America in the Middle East. My prayer is that President Obama will not tread far beyond the authority of Congress and the will of the American people. For wisdom has many counsellors.

Of course, we should always pay what ever the cost to rescue our Christian family and the innocent from being slaughtered at the hands of the jackals roaming the haunts of Babylon; yet, we cannot strengthen the enemies of Israel, promote sexual perversion, and pre born infanticide among the nations, and expect our conduct to not move us away from the protective hand of God. Certainly, if our meddling with HIS land, and our influence among the nations work against HIM can we expect reprieve?  What kind of judgement is it that we would be suffering loss from our own hardware in a land of so much conflict and uncertainty?

If we must involve ourselves and for humanity’s sake it seems that we must, it should be done with fear and trembling, with supplications, and humility, in our solemn assemblies. Family of God let us pray and repent of our sins, and  intercede with out ceasing for America and our suffering brothers, and sisters, in this hour. Will we not be held accountable, oh watchman?

 In your arrogance you were lifted up in your heart before all the nations. Ezekiel 31,32.

Behold the voice of the cry of the daughter of my people because of them that dwell in a far country: Is not the LORD in Zion? is not her king in her? Why have they provoked me to anger with their graven images, and with strange vanities?

The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved. For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me. Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?

The Harbinger Bounty

In 1960 the Bounty was built in Nova Scotia for the 1962 film, Mutiny on the Bounty. It has also been used in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Dead Man’s Chest and At World’s End. Still, it went down in the waves, known by all, as the Tall Ship Bounty. Her movie titles, alone, paint a prophetic picture that cannot be denied. They give credence to the suggestion that Bounty’s last tragic performance, cried out a warning as she made her final bow on the stage of America’s coastal waters.

Mutiny_HMS_BountyThe more I look into the details of Bounty, I cannot help but see a prophetic story behind the story, that suggest earnest warnings we can’t ignore. A symbolism of TITANIC proportions that lies with in its epic journey. (And I mean that literally since the sinking of the Titanic on April 15, 1912, also, was said to have profound prophetic value.) Bounty’s unusual story begins with CHRISTIAN FLETCHER (who was Bounty’s Mutineer) naming his first born son THURSDAY OCTOBER. The child THURSDAY, was born October 14, 1790. It would be 222 years later, ON A THURSDAY IN OCTOBER, that the Ship would depart from its safe haven, from the New London harbour in Connecticut. An unlikely name to mark a departure 222 years in advance. That alone is a notable coincidence.

The Tall Ship rests as a side note to a storm far bigger than any she has ever faced.

Hurricane Sandy, in her own right, holds parallels of the storm to come that will trouble our own waters, if we don’t act on warnings that the SPIRITUAL LIGHT HOUSES in the land, are trying to convey to a sleepy nation. To see it for yourself I will give you the keys. But, first read my story. After that, research on your own and see if you cannot discern the prophetic warning crying out to us from the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean 90 miles southeast of of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Bounty Sailed off, that fateful day, from New London which is graced with great beacons of its own, along the coastline. Only to falter in the waters of America’s largest brick  lighthouse four days later. Christian America, are we not houses of light? Are we not sounding the alarm loud enough, shining our light bright enough?

Again, it was a THURSDAY in OCTOBER, the 25th of 2012, just days before the election that Bounty set sail from the Harbour of New London, Connecticut, to avoid what it fell into, headlong, in an attempt to “skirt” the storm. I wonder, should America leave her proverbial harbours, in a weakened economy, to toss in the torrents of what many are predicting could lead us into World War III? You see, it was Bounty’s failed generators that sealed her demise while she tossed, vicariously,  in a whirlwind of unprecedented circumstances. Will America’s economic generators fail her in the storms of the Sand? So much like The Tall Ship Bounty trying to skirt the squalls of the Frankenstorm Sandy, that we can equate to the opening theatre of World War III.

The etymology of Sandy meaning- “In the Nature of the Sand” Remember, Governor Christy tried to re-build after Sandy hit, and that effort burned down. The fire was due to faulty electrical wiring from the previous structure. IF THE FOUNDATION IS BROKEN WHAT CAN THE PEOPLE DO? How about a national day of repentance before we arrogantly decide to rebuild? Look what we are facing in the land of sand, if we don’t step back, humble ourselves and seek God? I’m speaking to Christian America, mind you. After building our lives with out a moral compass to see us through our storms we run headlong into one far more menacing, with far more lives at stake. Truly, as the parable warns not to do … WE have done it any way. Jesus plainly warned us not to build our house on the sand, rather, Jesus said, “Build your house on the ROCK.” America, could you have not put your trust in Christ?

Two years later, the story of the Tall Ship Bounty continues to parallel as a HARBINGER of things to come, if we do not heed the prophetic warnings voiced in her tragic demise. The beautiful replica of a ship whose sails proudly billowed in the sea breezes of years gone by, is now a story, fully supplied with the cargo of prophetic detail cautioning us not to flirt with a WORLD WIDE tempest, while our economic engines, and generators are failing.

BOUNTY’S story is a sign, paralleling AMERICA’S Economy in her tragic story. A fatal decision is made to move the TALL SHIP BOUNTY out to sea, in order to avoid what is titled THE STORM OF THE CENTURY, but instead of going around it, the TALL SHIP BOUNTY is steered into the path of the HURRICANE SANDY. Later it is reported that the engine, and the generator, that pumped water from her hull, both failed.

Bounty took on water and sank beneath the crew. Taking with her, a direct descendant of the original BOUNTY’S mutineer, and her captain. The weakened economic engines of AMERICA and the GENERATORS that are failing her, will not support the unpredictable path of what is to come. Will we heed the WARNINGS? WILL AMERICA’S OARSMEN STEER her headlong into STORMS she will not be able to survive? (Ez.27) Shall HER BOUNTY SINK BENEATH THE WAVES? See the incredible parallels of BOUNTY’S History and warnings out of EZEKIEL 27. WOULD THAT BOUNTY HAD RESTED IN NEW LONDON’s harbour, the cradle of former awakenings.  Link below.

Did the humbling of our American leaders who were steering us headlong into the Syrian conflict come as an answer to our prayers, the last time around?

What secrets are hidden in the wisdom of Bounty’s prophetic counsel, that is directly tied to Ezekiel 27? Should America take the beating of her bountifulness, with in her own harbours, rather than facing off the storms of the SAND?

Does the story of Fletcher Christian parallel the generational fruition of the seeds of mutiny?

Can patriotic Christian America humble herself before God?Are there foundational errors and arrogances Christian America need to own up to?Fletcher (seller of arrows) Christian Bounty’s Mutineer. Will Christian America repent for selling out her arrows (Children) even her posterity for the purposes of that which is the nature of the SAND?

Psalm 127:3-5 Children are as arrows, Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.

2 Chronicles 7:13-14

…”If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. “Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.…

Following that prophetic marker regarding the seller of arrows, should America have ever sold our weapons to unstable characters in the Middle East? Is that ever wise? Where is the wisdom of God, America? Will her own war arrows defeat her efforts in the middle east, as her economic generators fail? America, repent turn back to the harbour. The region of your former awakenings. Pray for Jerusalem, that she would have peace. Stop murdering your pre-born children, feed, clothe, and shelter Christ himself, who is our brethren, near and far. Be a rescuer, not a fool in wars with the haters of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Only God can unravel what you have done, He is able.

NEXT: Let’s move on to the next page with these three keys. 1. The Tall Ship Bounty represents America, blessed. 2. The Sandy Hurricane represents the War of the Century. 3. The Captain of the Bounty represents the American Infrastructure, both in counsel and form. All other prophetic parallels and markers have been identified.

Making Your Election Sure

image

Hear what the spirit says to those who call themselves The people of God in America. I have a people who call out to me day and night. They truly weep at my feet and are covered under my shadow at the alter, in the place of intercession, many of them have answered the call, have forsaken all, to follow my instruction in these the end-times. No election of candidates will change what America is facing in her tomorrows. Repentance, only, will extend the hand of the Father to pass mercy across this land, he is able to turn the face of kings, as well as harden the hearts of the Pharaohs. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. What are the words spoken out of the mouth of the shepherds in the land? Will slander, mockery, and the blaming of others turn the tide? 

The First Church Of The Free Born

But, yet there is an unrepentant, religious, and prideful people, who walks the broad path of what is called Christian America, today.

I saw the rubble of a building in the fore front, a city scape in the back drop, and between the two- a storm beaten Statue of Liberty. An arm from heaven reached down and took the hand of a little boy out of the rubble, and The Lord said, “See this thing that you have done? The thing that has been broken in America is not being understood by the natural eye, for though this people have greatly prospered, and have acquired much wealth and comfort, they are a broken and plundered people, their children, if they could see, stand a midst the rubble of broken lives, broken families, and broken homes. What has become of those I have appointed to be Fathers in the Land? Worse yet, what has befallen the Shepherds? The curse of dismemberment plagues the land, the children are increasingly covered with a spirit of violence, says The Lord, you have wanted everything, and have paid the price to obtain it! The price you have paid is your posterity.

If you could see what you have come to, where your children are standing alone, in the rubble of a nation, that has everything, but possesses nothing … Yet, as I have said, my arm is not shortened that it cannot save; nor, is my ear heavy that I cannot hear, for I am hearing the cry of the Fatherless in this nation, and with my own arm of strength I am reaching for them, says The Lord, for they are the generation that will know the cost for the selling of the souls of men. Yet, I have called them by the name that I have named them, and they will look up from where they sit, and they shall find me, my hand extended, in the day that I can be found. I will lead them as a father would lead them, they shall be my sons, and my daughters, and I shall be their father.

For I am a father to the fatherless, and a husband to the widow, says The Lord. You have created a nation of orphans, and a land full of widows of the living dead. You war against me still, and you say how have I warred against you, lord? I sent forth the spirit of Elijah into the land, to turn the fathers heart towards the children, that your children may learn the way of FATHER, but you have resisted me, says The Lord, who died that you might live, and whose WORD now lives, that you might not die. Rather, you sacrifice the future of your own in order to protect your comforts for the day. Why do you continuously ( without remorse) sacrifice your sons and your daughters to the god of temporary pleasures? Over, and over again, while being the most civilized, of the civilized, in your eyes?

You have spent your seed for sowing upon your own pleasures, what then shall come to you in the day of harvest? Have you not sowed to the wind? Shall you not reap the whirl wind? Is it not written a GOOD MAN leaves an inheritance to His children’s children? What then is the one called who sells the child of his child to servitude, some not yet born? Shall he escape this shame? Will not the lender stop his lending, and demand the borrower to pay? Shall they not liquidate the future, to satisfy the appetites of yesterday? Does not the house do as the hill, and the hill the same as the house? So you say it is those upon the hill that does these things, but are not those upon the hill the same who live in houses, did they not first come out of your neighbourhoods, and communities? They serve themselves first, as you in your homes the same, at the expense of their child’s future, for enough is never enough to satisfy, as fire is never satisfied, nor rage, nor lust.

Therefore, your elected ones reflect you. So then, shall this one who fattened himself upon his child’s tomorrow not Himself be in want? Shall he not regret the price he paid for those things that last not, the price of his own sons, and daughters? Have I not given you time to repent? Both small, and great, says the Lord, but you would not? You quoted all the right scriptures, wrote your books, held your meetings, financed your campaigns, to bring AMERICA BACK TO GOD, you tussled in your homes, at city hall, and in your town square pointed your finger and beat your chest, a patriot, of patriots you say, yet in all of this did you personally confess the error in your own heart? Did you humble yourself to seek it out, to find what you cannot see, unless you humbly enquire of me? Yet, touched by these things, rather, you rage. This one thing, you will lie down in regret. Repent, says The Lord, and I will give you your children to honour your memory. That they may see, in the end, you did all that you could do.

I will not have you deceived, repentance will not reinstate to you what you would esteem as your former glory; it will however, provide for you the reward that comes with the testing of your faith, more precious than gold. I can promise you the process of the baptism of fire. Turn to me now, see? See? Even the generation that watched out for you, built for you, shall you even tax for your salacious appetites, to keep your status quo? So you rob from the future, and drain the store, to have your fill for the day?

Repent and I will sustain you, for the benefit of your children’s children, a generation who will know my name, my arm of strength, and power, if you repent, this one thing you shall then have, the joy of your children with you, the sons and daughters, of your sons, and your daughters, who play upon the floor where you rest your feet, whom, themselves, shall pay regard to how you finished the end of your days. For in your best days a common thing shall be in the land, one house hold shall house three. Hear what the Spirit of The Lord says, that I may walk you out of your errors, this day, not that you become as you were. But, that you be counted as the wise who made a difference when your story is told, among those who will come after you. Whose HERITAGE will be of me, says The Lord.

A prayer to start with:

Father in Heaven, I come before you to acknowledge my sins that I have committed along with those that have trespassed against you in this great nation, that the people were given stewardship to manage, so many years ago. Father, somehow, we have lost our nation into the hands of another. Our elected ones that come from our neighbourhoods, our communities, and our cities, have turned our country the wrong way, time after time. I come before you and repent for all that I had part in, in America turning its back on you, and the Godly principles we were to uphold. Even in the sin of omission when I didn’t do those things that I could have done, to insure our good standing with you, as a people. I repent of all my ways that has acted in unison with all citizens of this country who have missed the mark, in securing your blessing upon our land. I ask that you show me what I can do as an act of true repentance, that I mean this prayer with all my heart. I pledge to continue to pray for all those in authority who are governing this great nation. I, also, pledge to NOT be one of those who stand as a mocker, slanderer, or a false witness; nor, a flatterer, or given over to the praise of men. But, will endeavour to speak the truth in love, at all times, and obey the Spirit to walk with Him, through all the days he has ordained for me, as a citizen of the Kingdom of God, on this soil. Amen

The Blood Moon An Exclamation Point

The Spirit of the Lord is saying, “I want them to get this right. To Understand what the message truly conveys in all my prophetic rehearsals.” The day they point to (in type) are revisited in shadows, every year. This shadow passing over the moon, is a sign unto my people that the rehearsals are passing over into their final phase of fruition. Embarking upon the journey that will bring them to their highest point. As the rehearsal for a wedding is played out to make sure all understand their participation.Until that final day.

(Christ concealed, in them and then revealed, yet concealed still, from the Jews, Until the great day of His revealing where all will see HIM whom they have pierced.)

“But, now. In all your getting get this, says the Lord. Understand this feast to know me as YOUR Shelter. What more can I do? I’ve sent my servants the prophets as I have promised, I confirm my word with signs and wonders following. In all your knowing know this: He that dwells in the Shelter of the Most High abides in the shadow of the almighty. In this is the days of your joy. In this is the harvest of all your provision you will have need of. In this I am present with you, not a memory, not a peaceful thought, but an abiding presence. Am I not the vine, as you are the branch? As you abide in me- life flow will be the course that sustains you, in draught. As I sustained the children of Israel in the wilderness, and gave them daily manna to strengthen them, is not the Bread OF Life my Son who sustains you in all your degrees of famine, says the Lord? Rest assured, I Am. Abide in the vine, dear ones, for with out the vine you can do nothing of yourself.”

Dogwood Spring

photo by uriah barnes

Dogwood Spring. A prophetic word for us to wait upon the Lord in the “hour of listening”. Metaphorically speaking, spring is a type of morning, as morning is a type of spring.   In February the Lord gave me a word for the kind of spring we were going to have on the East Coast. Just as He did last year, in the Floridian Mandate prophecy. I call these little revelations  “prophetic markers” or “signposts” to confirm our journey through times of uncertainty. Such as the unpredictable weather patterns we are having, that seem to showcase the unpredictable world we are living in. Yet, Christ … is the rock we cling to, the solid foundation we build our lives upon, if we are to know peace in this world.

 Philipians 4:6-7  Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God,which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Walk with me- is the message of the sign, that comes with a  fulfilled prophetic word in DOGWOOD SPRING. With it is an article THE BUD IS YET IN THE VINE a message of hope that is in its NOW season!  

February 2/7/2013 dogwood spring:  ” This spring will be like a  pre-dawn morning. An extended “early spring”  wet and chilly. “Lined flannel weather.”   

 

2/7/2013 NeWine Pouring Prophetic word for -an extended wet and chilly spring … Update- 4/23/2013

                               Why Has It Been So Cold This Spring?

By Douglas Main, OurAmazingPlanet Staff Writer | LiveScience.com – Tue, Apr 2, 2013 http://news.yahoo.com/why-cold-spring-201231727.html“… Although spring has arrived, it may not feel that way for many in the United States and Canada who have had to put up with unusually cold temperatures.”

***

A little sign from the Lord to let us know he cares about our every day living. It is April 23, 2013 and I am still turning up the heat in the mornings to cut the chill in the house, in a time of year in the South that we normally don’t need it. The message of Dog Wood Spring? Take this time as if it was the pre-dawn hour to spend in prayer before the bustle of the day- When spring finally yields to summer we will have plenty of heat to complain about, so enjoy bundling up in your “lined flannel” with a cup of coffee while you still can, and get spiritually hydrated through prayer, and the word, for the summer days ahead.

Psalm 5:1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up .

In The News Today, Bounty. HARBINGER of Things To Come?

Tall Ship Bounty And Sandy Enigmas

The TALL SHIP BOUNTY is in the news today as an investigation wraps up that examined why she sank off of the banks of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, during hurricane Sandy. A “generator” failed that was pumping water from the vessel. Of course that was not the reason Bounty sank. It was a storm unpredictable, and a series of  decisions made before and after the failed generators. Much like America is facing today. We are running on economic GENERATORS, and paper money to keep this vessel a float. Will they prevail the storms, or will they fail in the midst of them?  Read on.

The details embedded in this story have interesting connections and coincidences that make you wonder, “Is the Sinking of the Tall Ship Bounty a harbinger of things to come?”

har·bin·ger : Noun.  A person or thing that announces or signals the approach of another. A forerunner of something. Synonyms herald – forerunner – precursor – messenger – portent.

THE TALL SHIP BOUNTY AND SANDY ENIGMAS

Ezekiel 27:25

The ships of Tarshish (seafaring vessels) were your ocean caravans. Your island warehouse was filled to the brim! “But look! Your oarsmen are rowing your ship of state into a hurricane! Your mighty vessel flounders in the heavy eastern gale. You are shipwrecked in the heart of the sea! Everything is lost — your riches and wares, your sailors and helmsmen, your ship builders, merchants, and warriors. On that day of vast ruin, everyone on board sinks into the depths of the sea. “Your cities by the sea tremble as your helmsmen cry out in terror. All the oarsmen abandon their ships; the sailors and helmsmen come to stand on the shore.

For more- WHY THE SINKING OF TALL SHIP BOUNTY IS NUMERICALLY ATTACHED TO  EZEKIEL 27:25 in its last fateful voyage.

From today’s story-                                                                                                                                                                 
“…  Around 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 27, about 300 miles east of Virginia Beach, Virginia, the captain made his move: Instead of continuing with his original plan to stay east of the storm, he ordered the crew to change course. He wanted to pilot the ship northwest of Sandy to harness its winds. Turning more westerly, the boat crossed the path of the oncoming hurricane.” [1]

Years of the Whirl Wind

After Storm
After Storm (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

America is on a track into her destiny, and come what  may, the triumphant church moves forward in stark contrast against America’s storms, manifesting His light  in ever-increasing darkness.

 “… We cannot say we are a righteous people. America has sinned, and has sown to the wind …”    Billy Graham 1/20/1993

Bill Clinton inauguration. We thought we were reaping the winds we have sown into- all these years, but we have had many days of prosperity since the Clinton administration, where Billy Graham spoke these words. Much grace, much mercy, much given us to do the right thing, but there comes a time for harvest, when all that we have sown shall come to its fullness. The good, the bad, and the ugly. We are just days into President Obama’s second term, whose elections were marred by the tragedy of both Sandy Hook, and the Sandy hurricane. Both violent whirlwinds of destruction. Just yesterday “out of season” tornadic storms ripped across the Southeast, our own town under tornado warnings. 

The Lord gave me a prophetic dream regarding the second term of president Obama that I have finally finished, after much prayer and waiting. When a nation has moved away from God, the only thing it has going for it, is the prayer of the intercessors. That is why we pray, we bind and loose, and cover our neighborhoods in prayer, pleading the blood of Jesus. We have literally seen the storms break up, and move around our little town, over, and over, again. This is our time to be the answer (that not even the government) could ever provide. 

The Body of Christ in Apostolic authority is where refuge shall be for those who seek to come out of the darkness, and into the light. He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide in the shadow of the almighty.  Not only shall we rest in HIS shadow, but in HIM we shall also “cast HIS shadow” for the lost to dwell in.

Nature of the Sand

10/29/2012

Psalm 62: 1-2 My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken, in Him.

The Nature of The Sand.

Hurricane Sandy

Yesterday, the Lord impressed me to look up the etymology of the name Sandy.  Besides being a common name derived from Alexander, the next description caught my attention, and it was simply this: SANDY as “SPEAKING OF THE NATURE OF SAND”. My thoughts went to the scripture in Matthew where Jesus is reminding his listeners of the importance to live their lives based on the principles of God’s word. Matt 7:24-27 ( the Message)

image“These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock. Rain poured down, the river flooded, a tornado hit—but nothing moved that house. It was fixed to the rock.

“But if you just use my words in Bible studies and don’t work them into your life, you are like a [an unwise]  carpenter who built his house on the sandy beach. When a storm rolled in and the waves came up, it collapsed like a house of cards.”

This is the nature of building on the sand, on a temporal, shifting foundation that never lasts; but, rather, will let you down when storms come. As the world erodes around us, the solid Rock is our only stability. Not a man, not a president, not riches, or fame. God is our only source of stability that endures all storms, and is a light that shows us our way through the night.

It seems as though this storm is another reminder of the fragility of our lives as it interrupts our plans, and puts a nation on alert, as if Sandy herself is telling us to be wary on what we build our lives upon, surly the outer banks of the east coast know how quickly the sea can claim property built on the sand.

Our prayers are with friends and family that is in the path of this storm, and we have a few out there, being we are not that far from the Atlantic ocean ourselves.

Psalm 18:2  The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
