"The second Thunder pealed and smoke rose into the heavens, there was a great noise in the valley, and those of the counsel conspired to war by peace as in the time of deception, for the people of the earth could not percieve the signs that are sent to them, so they walk astray and fall into pits" ~ 9.11.03 Prophetic Word.
   The first "Thunder" prophecy given 7.28.03 came to pass in August. 
   "Behold ye among the heathen , and regard and wonder marvellously, for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you."~ (Habakkuk 1:5)
   The Spirit of the Lord has led me to some obscure verses of scripture with a message of immanent concern for all of us.  These verses are rarely read or taught from, but they are given as examples for our day as well as the day in which they were written.
  God will do a "work" in the Earth, a work of sorting, and cleansing, and judgement.  Sorting by separating his faithful from those who are sitting on the fence spiritually, and from those who know God only as a vague philosophy, but not as a personal savior.  Cleansing by purifying peoples hearts and mionds, and rooting out any evil that dwells within.  Judgement, first upon the house of God, by sorting, separating, and cleansing, and then simultaneously a judgement on the nation for its multitudes of sin.  Face facts, the western world has openly committed every form of sin right before Gods face, as if shaking their fist at God!  What was unacceptable 40 years ago is flaunted in the streets- drugs, violence, perversion, cheating, lying stealing- all of this is rampant and even the church is desensitized to it.
   "And the cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and the land shall be desolate, and ye shall know that I am the Lord."~(Ezekiel 12:20)
   "Even as Sodom and Gomorah, and the cities about them in like manor, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire."~ (Jude 7)
     When a nation gives itself over to blatant immorality, and especially homosexuality, theat nation is in its last days.  This is a historical fact in all of recorded history.  When the church begins to condone such evil practice, and excuse those who do them (see Romans 1:26-32) then the judge stands at the door.  Unless the land repents, as Nineveh did at Jonahs preaching, God will bring judgement swiftly, usually within a generation, often sooner.  In other words, our days are numbered if we do not have a serious and widespread change of heart and direction.
   "For I am the Lord, I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass, it shall be no longer prolonged, for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it waith the Lord God--- Therefore say unto them, thus Saith the Lord God, there shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken, shall be done, saith the Lord"~ (Ezekiel 12:25+28)
   That powerful message has a ring of finality to it; This is the way it is.  Don't bother to deny it.  Stop pampering yourselves, believing that somehow God doesn't see whats going on in society.  Stop lying to yourselves and believing the lie.  God is going to take drastic measures, soon!
   "And the Lord God of Hosts is he that toucheth the land, and it shall melt, and all that dwell therein shall mourn, and it shall rise up wholly like a flood, and shall be drowned, as by the flood of Egypt"~ (Amos 9:5)
   This will not come as a flood of water, but rather as a "flood" of fire.  Gods been using "floods" of both water and fire these past 10 years as signs to the nation that it needs to change its spiritual course.  Turn from the heading towards darkness, and turn towards Gods light.  The nation hasn't done that as a whole.  Lip service only.  When popular singers can sing about drinking beer and finding Jesus in the same line of song, or equating sexual lusts with heaven and Gods angels, it shows the sheer mockery of God by society as a whole.  When God brings His big judgement, it will be by fire.  It may be nuclear, or it may be volcanic.  Or it may even be a type of fire from heaven- asteroids, or angelic fire~ but it will come.  2 Peter capter 3 describes the coming fires, saying that even the heavens will be on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat.  Revelation 17:16 and 18:8-10 say that "Mystery Babylon" will be judged by fire and the people of the earth will see the smoke of that burning nation- or "city".
   "Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate, therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left---the earth is utterly borken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly."~ (Isaiah 24:6+19)
   In January 1993, I was reading Zephaniah 3:6 and had a vision- a vision that came to pass 6 weeks later on Feb. 26, 1993.  Later in 1993 and 94 I kept getting messages from Isaiah 31:25 which mentions "The day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall."  I envisioned the same buildings as the first vision, only this time they completely toppled.  Yet people who heard these messages, and messages like them from others, refused to repent, and as a whole the nation continued to wallow in moral decay and spiritual sewage.  So the fire came.  Amazingly, this wake up call did little to awaken anyone spiritually.  It awakened Nationalistic pride bordering on pure arrogence in some cases, but there was little true heart sought repentance.  We were not humbled, and did not view it as chastisement.  So we missed the message...
   What has been written has been written.  People can choose which direction to take.  God sets before us both blessings and cursings as he did in Deuteronomy 28. By our choices will our lives be affected. Either way, God will have the ultimate say in these matters and will show that He, and not humans, is The One in control .......
In order for the churches to accept this kind of mesage, then proclaim it to the people, they first must come clean before God- "ye offer polluted bread upon my altar, and ye say, wherein have we polluted thee?"- (Malachi 1:7) Many in todays church offer to God a life that is corrupt, "and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing"~ (Malachi 1:14) We are called to "present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God"~ (Romans 12:1)
  Unfortunately the actions of the churches have caused Gods name to be mocked, and the utter powerlessness of many churches has allowed evil to spread across the land like a plague~ "Neither shall ye profane my holy name; but I will be hallowed among the children of Israil, I am the Lord which hallow you."~ (Leviticus 22:23) Hallowed means to be holy, sacred, consecrated, to be set apart as dedecated to God.  Profane here means to defile, desecrate, pollute.  God is telling us he will be holy and that he will se us apart as dedicated to him, that we are not to desecrate or pollute his name.  This applies to us in this day in this nation as well, for God has not changed.
  "And I will come near to you in judgement and I will be a quick witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers,a dn against those that oppress the hireling in wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger, and fear not me, saith the lor of hosts, for I am the Lord, I change not."~(Malachi 3:5)
   It is time to return to God, to search our innermost being for the essence of Gods presence, and for the guiding diretion of his Holy Spirit.  "Let us search and try our ways and turn again to the Lord, let us lift up our heart with hands unto God in the heavens." ~(Lamentations 3:40-41) ~ we need to "cry mightily unto God, yea, let them turn eyeryone from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands.  Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not?"~ (Jonah 3:8-9) The choice is ours, whether to heed this message or not, for it is Gods call to us.....
    And what exactly is this calling?~ "But as he which hath called you is Holy, so be ye Holy in all manor of conversation, because it is written, be ye holy, for I am holy. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that  ye should show forth the  praises of him who hath called you out of darkness unto his marvellous light"~ (1 Peter 1:15-16 and 2:9) 
   Do not be afraid of this message; do not fear the "enemy."  God is greater, and ultimately God has called you to greater things than you can imagine.  Though judgement may come, we can all choose to individually turn to God and obtain the promises He makes to us: Power and salvation to eternal life.
    "According to the word that I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt, so my Spirit remaineth among you; fear ye not... 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, and I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come...And I will overthrow the throne of Kingdoms, and I will destroy the kingdoms of the heathen,,,,,(Haggai 2:5-7 and 22)  The point is here "fear ye not! " Do not be afraid of these things God is greater than all the enemies!
   "Then they that feared the Lord spake often to one another, and the Lord hearkened and heard it, and a book of rememberance was written before him for them that feared the Lord and that thought upon his name.  And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of Hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels, and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.  Then shall ye return, and discern between the rightous and the wicked, between him that serveth God, and him that serveth him not"~ (Malachi 3:16-18)
  Let us ponder in our minds for a moment.  Quiet your thoughts.  Be still and contemplate in your heart.  Examine where you really stand in relationship with God.  If you find something lacking, come before God in prayer, empty yourselfof vanity and pride, and let the spirit of life from God fill the empty void.  In Gods Spirit ye shall stand.
 
Who is the Enemy?
 
  The book of lamentation was written by the Prophet Jeremiah after Jerusalem fell.  Throughout her history, Jerusalem has coninually been destroyed after her people turn from God to commit idolatry and immorality.  One of the reason Jerusalem has been chastized so often is because it is supposed to be a righteous city, a place where God dwelt in the temple.  Jesus said "Unto whom much is given, much is required." ~(Luke 12:48)
   America is a nation claiming a godly heritage, which claims God is the one who has blessed her.  Yet at the same time America turns to practices that are opposed to Gods ways.  Hear then these words of Jeremiah, and apply them to the times we live in:
    "How doth the city sit solitary, that was full of people!  How is she become as a widow.  She that was great among the nations, and princess among the provinces, how is she become tributary!  Her filthiness is in her skirts, she remembereth not her last end; therefore she came down wonderfully, she had no comforter, O Lord behold my affliction, for the enemy hath magnified himself"~ (Lamentation 1:1 and 9)
  Lets ask ourselves, who is the real enemy?  Was it the invading foriegn army?  Or in the case of America, is the enemy truly terrorists?  Surely our enemy is twofold, yet we knew it not.  Our enemy is ourselves, and by our transgressions against God, The Lord becomes as an enemy (Lamentations 2:5) "Behold, the eyes of the Lord God are upon the sinful Kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of th earth....  All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, the evil shall not overtake nor prevent us."~ (Amos 9:8 and 10)
   See what is happening here?  People are teaching lies, even the Spiritual "prophets" do this- they promise peace and prosperity, but its a delusion, because destruction comes!  Ezekiel Chapter 13 portrays such prophets, saying they divine lies, they prophesy out of their own heart, and seduce the people, saying peace when there is no peace.  They are saying "the evil shall not overtake us", but then evil comes upon them anyway!
   "Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things for thee, and they have not descocered thine iniquity, to turn away thy captivity, but have seen for thee false burdens and causes of banishment. ~(Lamentations 2:14)
   Further on, Jeremiah describes how the enemy entered Jerusalem because of "The sins of her prophets, and the iniquities of her priests, that have shed the blood of the just in the midst of her.~ (Lamentations 3:13)
   How have the prophets "shed blood"? In a sense they shed blood by simply failing to warn the people of what is really coming, and by lying to them.  They shed blood by condoning sin, even by their silence they accept it rather than denounce it.
   For these reasons judgement cometh!
