This word came this morning as I was in prayer.
Why do you sleep? Like a sluggard, a little folding of the hands, a closing of the eyes. You dream of what you will do, you dream of what will make you great. Why do you sleep? I’ve sounded trumpets. I’ve shaken the grounds. I’ve sent winds and scorching heat. Yet still you sleep. You dream of the great things you can build for me, yet they have your name on them. You build yourself up.
I am about to cleave this nation, the world will shudder. While you sleep I will split the land in two. The very heart of this land will be brought asunder. In your very heart I will render the earth apart and you who are not prepared will fall. I will tear you in two and your works will fail. Men will see that I am sovereign and just.
I have a few, and their hearts are prepared. They will rise up and minister to you. You will know that I am God and nothing, nothing, nothing I do will return void.
God is sovereign and just. He has been speaking loudly to return to His purpose, not ours. It takes a truly blind man not to see the trouble this country, and even worse the church, is in. Even my church, an AoG, supposedly Spirit filled assembly turns a blind eye to what God is doing. Earlier this month a nation wide Call to Fall went out for, corporately, the church to fall on their knees and pray. In my church the pastor has been preaching on building a Rick Warren type church(see author’s note below), but at Sue’s insistence did, that Sunday, spend a whole 15 minutes “in prayer”. Then it was back to preaching on building the Rick Warren type church. Sleeping? Yes.
In cleaving this nation I believe it is both figuratively and physically. I believe the time is quite soon that He is going to send an earthquake to the very heartland of America. Will it be New Madrid? Maybe, but I don’t think so. David Wilkerson was given a vision of an huge earthquake in an unexpected place. New Madrid is expected. I remember reading about a rather substantial fault or earthquake zone that runs up the Mississippi through Minnesota and around Superior. Could this be the zone, or the heart? Could it set off, then, a subsequent New Madrid earthquake that would, in effect, render this country in two? I would love to have a direct word saying so, or no.
The direct word that we do have is to “wake up”. Like the church of Sardis, this country is in a spiritual sleep, having happy, waking dreams while the enemy encamps around to take possession. This is the wake up call. Return to Christ, purify yourselves from the effects of the world. God is calling you for His work. Those who read this, who God is speaking to, who have not come to the fullness of His Grace, if your heart is burning inside and your conscience is telling you, it’s time, take this time, now, to give yourself to Him who loves you more than the world. Do it now…
Note: The Pastor has reassured that they want nothing to do with Rick Warren and his Chrislam push. I am relieved at that.
