Surviving The Storms Ahead Part 1

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. Matthew 7:24-27 GREAT DARKNESS AND GREAT GLORY On the morning of Yom Kippur this year while praying I had a vision of the Tabernacle of Moses in the wilderness. I was looking at this from a distance and could see all the tribes encamped and obviously still asleep. It was very early morning and very still, when suddenly I heard a shrill blast on a trumpet. This woke the camp up and people spilled out of their tents and looked in the direction of the cloud over the tabernacle. As I turned to look in the same direction, I noticed the cloud was moving. By now the camp was stirring with people shouting: “The cloud is moving”. God is moving on in His purposes and plans for the true church and we need to be moving with God in this new season. Understanding the times and the seasons is very important, getting left behind makes it almost impossible to catch up. I was given two scriptures as I watched this unfold: Moreover thou leddest them in the day by a cloudy pillar; and in the night by a pillar of fire, to give them light in the way wherein they should go. Nehemiah 9:12 And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys: But if the cloud were not taken up,

then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up. For the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys. Exodus 40:36-38 Earlier this year the Lord appeared to me and spoke to me regarding the three main Feasts of the Lord: Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles. He began speaking to me regarding the feast of Passover saying this. “There have been many Passovers in the past all with significance, however this Passover is of great importance as it marks a change in the world, the church, the nations, and heaven is moved with anticipation. This Passover marks a change in my dealings with the church and the nations. I will no longer wait, I have extended grace in extending the time for my church to repent and turn back to me but that time is over” At this point I understood that there had been a two year delay of God’s purposes in order to give the church more time to get things right but there is no more time for extended grace and mercy, it’s time to move on. The Lord then quoted Revelation 22:11 “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.” Revelation 22:12

And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” The tone in the Lord’s voice was part sadness, tinged with hope, joy and resoluteness. He continued “It is time to move on into the next stage of my purposes. I cannot wait any longer. This time of grace has come to an end and I will open a new day of grace for those who will follow me wholly, and it will be said of those who move on into this next phase, that this was their finest hour” I was acutely aware that this was a phrase used by Winston Churchill when England was on the brink of losing the war to Germany. The Lord went on to say: “I will add more of the fullness of these feasts each year over the next seven years”. I understood that the Lord was saying that He would restore more of the fullness of the feast of Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles over the next seven years. We have not yet entered into the fullness of these feasts. When Passover was established and the children of Israel left Egypt there was not one feeble person among them. We know that we have not as yet entered the fullness of Pentecost, however God is about to restore the fire to the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Feast of Tabernacles includes the final great harvest and a release of revelation and the fullness of

Mathew 24:38-39 Isaiah 5:20 REMOVAL OF THE ANCIENT LAND MARKS Many of the western nations were formed with a constitution that laid out basic rights of the individual and basic laws concerning right and wrong. These laws became the pillars of these nations. Over the last few years we have seen an erosion of Remember God destroyed Sodom primarily because of the sin of sodomy. The laws redefining marriage are opening the gates to great judgement upon those nations. Removing the boundaries incurs the wrath of God. We are told to pray for the restoration of the ancient landmarks. Many western

nations now ban anything Christian in their schools while on the other hand set up prayer rooms for Islamic students. This so-called “political correctness” has opened doors to much evil. This is not a time to be tolerant, and politically correct. It is truth that will set a nation free. Do not remove the ancient landmark Which your fathers have set. Proverbs 22:28 We are now at the point where the only way to bring back truth and true reality as based in God’s word is for Judgement to come. This will turn many back to righteousness. These judgements are God’s last resort and they are expressions of His love. God does not wish for any to perish, His judgements are redemptive. We must also remember that judgement first begins in the House of the Lord. For the time is come that judgement must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17

are asleep. The plans for a world government which will require a world military force and a world banking system, as well as a world religious system, are well underway now. The time is coming soon, when the false world church incorporating all religions will be the only church allowed to function. All other true churches will be outlawed. You may think that this would never be allowed! Well one third of the true church is now experiencing real and severe persecution. The western church is in for a real life-changing shock, a wakeup call that will change the very nature of how we do church. Many shepherds of the flock are not warning their people and preparing them for the difficult days ahead and will be accountable to God for this. And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Romans 13:11-12 As it was in the days of Noah so shall it be in the days we are now living in. Jesus clearly warned the end-time churches concerning these days.

The battle for who will end up controlling this planet is heating up. There has never been a time in history like this before. We are And as he sat upon the mount of heading into the most dangerous Olives, the disciples came unto him times ever and so many Christians privately, saying, Tell us, when shall

these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Mathew 24:3-8 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Mathew 24:13-14 We are now living in these days which Jesus clearly warned us about. We are living now at the end of the age, and Jesus will not return until all these things have come to pass. Jesus clearly said that during these days the Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached to every nation, tribe and tongue. This is a worldwide demonstration of the power of the Kingdom of God along with a proclamation of the Gospel of the Kingdom to every living soul on the planet. Jesus cannot and

will not return until these things have been fulfilled. Those who are teaching that Jesus ... “could come tomorrow, so be ready”, are deceived. This worldwide revival has not yet happened but it will begin very soon. Light and darkness, good and evil, glorious times and dark times, are now upon us. Gross darkness is falling upon the earth along with great glory and light, the two run together and mature together. See Isaiah 60:2-3 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. Romans 11:22 Yea, in the way of thy judgements, O LORD, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee. Isaiah 26:8 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgements are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. Isaiah 26:9 UNDERSTANDING JUDGEMENT Seismic activity will increase, earthquakes will increase dramatically over the next season. Tsunamis like we have never seen before will devastate large areas. Signs in the sun and

blood moons are prophetic voices to this generation. Famines, especially in Africa, Russia and China, will reach frightening proportions. Violence will increase all over the world. This will be due primarily to murder being legalised in most nations by allowing abortions which opens the door for Satan to releases the spirit of murder across the world. Premature deaths of young people will increase, and there are two primary reasons for this. First, the legalisation of abortion is opening the door to the spirit of murder to flood the nations. The main target for this wave of murder and death is the young people. Second, youth rebellion against parents again opens the door that allows the enemy to shorten the lives of young people.

for us to comprehend why great judgements are coming upon the earth. We also need to understand that GOD IS IN CONTROL. God allows the devil to do certain things and the luke-warmness and lack of holiness in the church opens doors for the devil to flow through, wreaking havoc in the earth. However God has the devil on a leash. Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Psalm 45:6 The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all. Psalm 103:19

FALSE TEACHERS There are those in the church who are teaching that Jesus Ephesians 6:2 Honour thy father took all judgement on the cross, and mother; which is the first thus forever cancelling out all commandment with promise; judgement against the church Ephesians 6:3 That it may be well and Christians in particular. with thee, and thou mayest live This teaching is a gross long on the earth. misinterpretation of scripture. Jesus was very clear on this issue. GOD’S JUDGEMENTS ARE The early church saw judgements REDEMPTIVE upon the church. Those who teach It is hard sometimes for us to that God no longer judges us as comprehend a God of love Christians are in for an abrupt bringing great judgements upon reality check. This kind of easy the earth. The scriptures make it grace is a gross misinterpretation abundantly clear that God is love, of God’s word, just ask Ananias He does not have love, He is love. and Sapphira (Acts 4:37). That is who God is. Everything that God does is motivated by Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, this one thing: LOVE.

For the time is come that judgement must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 1 Peter 4:16-18 Don’t be fooled by teachers of easy grace, God will judge sin, even though He is kind and gracious. He will judge sin in order to stop the progression of sin in a Christian’s life. This is the kindness of God.

war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. Revelation 13:6-7 Many will lose their lives as they did in the Days of Noah because they were not ready and able to stand in those days.

ISRAEL AND THE CHURCH There is an increasing controversy in the church concerning Israel, the Jews, in the plan of God. The anti-Semitic attitude by many in the church today is abhorrent to God. The Lord clearly promised Behold therefore the goodness and Abraham that those who blessed him (Abraham) would receive the severity of God. Romans 11:22a blessings of the Lord but those who do not bless Israel, the Jews, God is going to clean house, just would bring upon themselves the judgement of God. This is a very as he did in Mathew 21:12-14. clear statement of God which Many are teaching that before cannot be taken lightly. things get real bad, God will rapture us out of this earth.

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ( the Jews) ye have done it unto me. Mathew 25:35-40 The anti-Semitic attitude that prevails in much of the church today will bring severe chastisement upon those who hold those views, unless they repent. Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Genesis 12:1-3 This was spoken by God long before the law was given to Moses and still stands today. The Apostle Paul writing to the church at Rome made it very clear that Israel would be grafted into the same vine as the church and they would become one. He went on to say that all Israel will be saved. This is not to say that there is no sin in Israel. Just the opposite is true, Israel is a very sinful nation just like all

the gentile nations. However we must align our heart with God’s heart in His love for Israel. It is very clear that it is God’s plan to graft Israel into the church But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people. Romans 10:21 I say then, Hath God cast away his people?(Israel) God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Romans 11:1-2 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. Romans 11:11 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again. Romans 11:24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? Romans 11:23-24 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: Romans 11:27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. As concerning the gospel, they

are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers’ sakes. Romans 11:26-28 These scriptures make it very clear that Israel is very close to the heart of God. We need to sync with and agree with God in regards to His attitude to Israel. Our attitude to Israel will to a large degree determines God’s blessing upon us in these end-times. The goat nations who align themselves against Israel will incur the wrath of God and this is also true of the church. ISRAEL – A PROPHETIC SIGNPOST TO THE CHURCH Since the creation of the State of Israel, Israel has served as a prophetic indicator to the church. When Israel became a sovereign nation in 1948, the Spirit of God was poured out upon the church resulting in the raising up of a great healing evangelistic revival, which swept across the earth with supernatural power on a scale that possibly had not been seen since the early church. One of the greatest evangelists and spiritual diplomats that the church has ever produced, Billy Graham, was anointed for his worldwide ministry at this time. Others were also raised up, such as Oral Roberts, and T.L. Osborn, along with many others who are not so well known. It was not a coincidence that this new wave

of revival started when Israel became a nation. In 1967 another war occurred when Israel retook Jerusalem. This triggered a new wave of the Holy Spirit upon the church which resulted in multitudes of every denomination receiving the baptism in the Holy Spirit. This move became known as the charismatic movement and became a great and powerful move of the Holy Spirit. Every time Israel has taken territory in the natural, the church has taken territory in the spiritual.

THE COMING MIDDLE EAST WAR There will be a conflict in the Middle East that will result in the destruction of Damascus. The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. Isaiah 17:1 Isaiah prophesied this long ago and it has not as yet been fulfilled. This may occur via the present situation in Syria as Damascus is being slowly destroyed in the current conflict there, or it may be in another scenario regarding Syria. One thing is sure when this happens, Israel will be blamed for it and the world will become enraged against Israel. A war in the Middle East is very close, Israel is on the brink of a well9 Surviving the storms

I saw major earthquakes coming to Japan, China, Russia, Pakistan, New Zealand and India. I saw in some nations new islands will rise up out of the sea as a result of earthquakes and volcanoes. There were also major earthquakes in the USA and South America. This great shaking will be a precursor to Haggai chapter two. Haggai 2:6 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; Haggai 2:7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts. Haggai 2:8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts. Haggai 2:9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts. PERSECUTION FROM THE FALSE WORLD CHURCH One of the things that stood out during this encounter was the rise to power of the False Church and its persecution of the true church. I saw that this was a major weapon of the Antichrist. I had not seen this with such clarity before. The rise of a Super World Church is already underway and gaining more political power. I saw the formation of a Super World Counsel which consisted of a union between the Liberal

Protestant Church and the Roman Catholic Church, which became one of the most powerful political forces in the earth with sweeping political powers. I saw the Pope of the Catholic Church slowly introducing so-called “tolerance” between religious organizations of all persuasions, including Islam, Hinduism and New Age spirituality, along with many other religions. Eventually this union of churches recognised homosexuality as a natural order of human evolution and existence. Homosexuals and Lesbians will be welcomed into this church and be welcomed as a new class of preachers with a new gospel of love. I saw that this gospel of free love also eventually extended to embrace physical love between the animal creation and humans. This resulted in previously unknown plagues sweeping the earth. This Super World Church will be spiritual in name, using the name of Jesus but will be antichrist in its politics, and occult in spirit. I saw a great and powerful move of God among Catholics who love the Lord which eventuated in over one million Catholics being born again and filled with the spirit. This generated great persecution from the world false church against them. Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 2 Timothy 3:12-14 I saw that the true church will receive most of its persecution from this false world church. This false church will be heavily involved in humanitarian work which will be a front for a more insidious agenda. I saw this false church grow very quickly in power having great influence in the political arena, it will be behind legislation targeted at the true church to limit its influence. This limiting of the influence of the true church will be a major part of the persecution against it. Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts. Psalm 28:3

nations will become one of the most powerful weapons against the true church. However this also is in the plan of God, forcing the church into a different kind of existence, sorting wheat from the chaff, which is necessary for the church to begin a move of world evangelism. All true Christian organizations will be so heavily taxed that most will cease to exist in their present form. The true church will still exist and mightily grow in power, harvesting the peoples of this world, but the past church structures will no longer exist. Many churches will not be able to pay mortgages on their land and buildings which will be forfeited to the government or to the false church.

It is time to re-think church building programs and formulate new structures in order to secure church assets. Anything which is truly Christian will be fair game for the false church. The true Shall the throne of iniquity, which church will continue to grow devises evil by law, Have fellowship exponentially but as it were with You? underground.

Presently we have real freedom in the preaching of the gospel via television, but this will soon change. Legislation will be enacted to censor all Christian programs on Television. This will be brought about again by using laws that ban any intolerance of other religions, preaching that Jesus is the only way to salvation will be banned in the name of tolerance and unity. A counsel will be established by the false church to censor anything in the religious arena on television. More and more power will be transferred to a One World Government, the NEW United Nations and the power of this organization will override the laws of individual nations. Any nation which resists the authority of this New World Order will face devastating economic sanctions. This false church will buy up companies such as YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook, taking them over and banning all true Christian content. Large media entities will also be bought out and used as propaganda against the true church of Jesus Christ. Hollywood will be greatly influenced by this false church. VIOLENT VIDEO GAMES I saw a group of companies forming an alliance, these companies were involved in producing violent video games, I saw high ranking evil spirits assisting them with this. I was made to understand that the

purpose of this was to program young people’s minds or should I saw re-programing minds. This re- programing of minds using visual images of violence was so powerful it seemed like the enemy was using this to prepare an army by desensitising these young people to violence. Even tho these were just so called games, the enemy was controlling this and using it as a powerful tool. I saw it was the antitheses to the biblical principle of having our minds renewed. This became so addictive I saw that it was a powerful drug, the addiction was very strong. SECULAR EDUCATION As I write, this false church has made real inroads into the secular education in Western Nations. We now have the unbelievable situation where Christian education is banned in schools. Certain subjects such as explicit sex education and homosexuality as being normal are right now being introduced to the school curriculum in western nations. These subjects and many others like them will become mandatory in schools, even in Christians schools.

We must remember that we are not here waiting to be rescued. We are here in this hour to do the rescuing. Huge revivals will fill massive outdoor stadiums, some whole cities will turn back to God while other cities will become more evil.
