It's now 4:53 am, monday morning. I should be in bed, but at around 3 ish, I awoke from my sleep, for some odd reason I simply could not sleep. Thinking it was just excitement from the past nights service, I attempt to go back to bed and rest, but at 4:45 this morning, the Lord spoke to me and told me a word which I'm going to share with you now.
The Lord stated for me to GET UP, to turn to the book of Jeremiah chapter 8 and to follow the leading of the spirit. I hesitated for a moment, maybe it's just me, but something in my spirit forced me up, so, I climb out of bed and move toward the dresser for my Bible, I kid you not, but here's what happened next. I turn on the light, grab my Bible and i simply open it up, I DID NOT THUMB thru the pages, it automatically was at Jeremiah, chapter 8!!! Wow, okay this is God.
So here is the word from the Lord. Jeremiah chapter 8:6-7 "I hearkened and heard, but they spake not aright: no man repented him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? every one turned to his course, as the horse rusheth into the battle. (7) Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD."
The Lord is saying that this nation, which has been blessed, prospered in every way, refuses to repent, refuses to acknowledge God. So God is about to judge the nation.
Verse 11-13 (empasis on verse 13!) "They have healed the wound of my people lightly, saying, ‘Peace, peace,’ when there is no peace. (12) Were they ashamed when they committed abomination? No, they were not at all ashamed; they did not know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among the fallen; when I punish them, they shall be overthrown, says the LORD. (vs 13) 'I will take away their harvest, declares the LORD. There will be no grapes on the vine. There will be no figs on the tree, and their leaves will wither. What I have given them will be taken from them.'"
Here is the rest of the word. This nation is going to go thru a famine, a famine of bread, of resources and for safety, this nation will begin to face disasters which CANNOT be explained, the oil is part of that, but there is coming this summer and fall something will hinder our fields from bringing forth wheat. I hear in my spirit 3 things which God will judge the nation of America, 1. spiritual 2. Economic 3. Food
There will also be terror that shall come upon the land, I do not know what exactly that means, but I believe it's terrorist events. But what concerns me is this - food. God was dealing with me to focus on verse 13, for he was about to cause weird weather patterns to hinder farmers from growing their annual harvest. There will be lack in this nation for the first time since the depression! I will say that again, the United States is about to face a famine of food sources!
But here is the good news which the Lord instructed me to tell each believer who trusts in him. Though all of this turmoil is about to come on this nation, THE CHURCH WHO PUTS HER FAITH AND TRUST IN GOD SHALL NOT SUFFER! As a matter of fact, the christian who places her trust in the Lord will not go without want! So, don't be afraid nor fear when gas prices go thru the roof, grocery stores can stock the basics like bread, milk and butter. God will take care of each and every one of his children. THIS shall be our greeatest testimoney to the lost, for they will see, the spirit of the Lord is saying that the lost, the world will see our wealth, our prosperity and they will ask how is it possible you are fat in the time of lean? Then you will tell them about me says the Lord and make my salvation known to them. But the Lord says that this will also cause a great persecution against the church, just as Israel was blessed and prospered, her enemies came against her for her wealth. But God is with us.
Listen, I do not believe that we are yet at the door for the world system, but we're getting close. This is the word which God woke me up this morning with and I am now sharing with you.
