Dear beloved: My spirit is bearing witness that we are in the calm before the storm, that a great shaking is about to begin in this country. This will be a time of great testing for even the strongest in the body of Christ, and for those outside the body it will be a sifting of unimaginable intensity. Where do you stand today, are your feet planted firmly upon the rock of Jesus Christ? Jesus said in Matthew 24:5 For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ', and will mislead many. v6 And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. v7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. v8 But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs. v9 Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations on account of My name. v10 And at that time many will fall away and will deliver up one another and hate one another.
Beloved, prepare yourself for the birth pangs are going to start to get more intense, closer together. And as they do, many will be mislead and follow false Christs, and many will fall into addictions of various kinds to soothe their pain, and many will take their own life and sometimes the lives of those around them. The enemy will mislead many down roads of destruction.
Jesus said in Matthew 7:24, "Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine, and acts upon them, may be compared to a wise man, who built his house upon the rock. v25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and burst against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded upon the rock. v26 And everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does not act upon them, will be like a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand. v27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and burst against that house; and it fell, and great was its fall. So which is it beloved, are you going to act upon his words? Are you going to build your house upon the rock or upon the sand? Every day that is the choice we all have to make, the rock or the sand. Prepare yourself this day, act upon the words of Jesus that you have heard, get your house upon the rock. You will be glad you did! God bless you this day as you act upon His words. God bless you, in Christ, Jim
