[b]The Midnight Hour For America[/b]
[i]by brother Greg[/i]


FEAR YE NOT ME?

“Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not: Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it? But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone. Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest. Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you. For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich. They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge. Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?” -Jeremiah 5:21-31


ITS MIDNIGHT!

It’s midnight and mankind does not know it. This warning is as much for myself and any other Christian as it is for those who are wayward or unbelieving. God is calling out with love and mercy to pardon and recieve those that are contrite and humble in heart. Repent now and seek God with all your soul. Obey the voice of God and esteem His Scriptures highly. For the grass will wither and fade but the Word of the Lord “will endure forever.”

Listen to the burdened heart of Chad Mellorn, sharing the only hope for America: “If there is any hope for this nation, it is not in the Whitehouse! It is not in the church house! It is not in the courthouse! It is the true men and women of God, who are willing to count themselves dead already, who are willing to obey God at His every word no matter the cost! It is in men like Noah, a preacher of righteousness who obeyed all that the Lord commanded him. It is in true Christ-like people who are faithful to the death. It is in men who have counted all things loss for the Excellence of the Knowledge of Him! I believe it is God’s constraining Spirit that has kept this nation standing to this day. I do not know if the there can be another stay of execution. Jonah did not go with an ultimatum to the people of Nineveh. “Yet forty days and Nineveh shall be overthrown!” This was the prophets call. And they were gripped with the fear of God.

“So the people of Nineveh believed God, proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least of them. Then word came to the king of Nineveh; and he arose from his throne and laid aside his robe, covered himself with sackcloth and sat in ashes. And he caused it to be proclaimed and published throughout Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste anything; do not let them eat, or drink water. But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily to God; yes, let every one turn from his evil way and from the violence that is in his hands. Who can tell if God will turn and relent, and turn away from His fierce anger, so that we may not perish? Then God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it.” Praise His name!”


SET THE TRUMPET TO THY MOUTH

In 1985 David Wilkerson gave prophecies from the burden of God about his beloved country America, here is a excerpt from this book and is very timely: "America is going to be destroyed by fire! Sudden destruction is coming and few will escape. Unexpectedly, and in one hour, a hydrogen holocaust will engulf America -- and this nation will be no more. America has sinned against the greatest light. Other nations are just as sinful, but none are as flooded with gospel light as ours. God is going to judge America for its violence, its crimes, its backsliding, its murdering of millions of babies, its flaunting of homosexuality and sadomasochism, its corruption, its drunkenness and drug abuse, its form of godliness without power, its lukewarmness toward Christ, its rampant divorce and adultery, its lewd pornography, its child molestations, its cheatings, its robbings, its dirty movies, and its occult practices. In one hour it will all be over. To the natural mind it is insanity to come against a prosperous, powerful nation and cry out, 'It's all over! Judgment is at the door! Our days are numbered!' The Church is asleep, the congregations are at ease, and the shepherds slumber. How they will scoff and laugh at this message. Theologians will reject it because they can't fit it into their doctrine. The pillow prophets of peace and prosperity will publicly denounce it. I no longer care. God has made my face like flint and put steel in my backbone. I am blowing the Lord's trumpet with all my might. Let the whole world and all the church call me crazy, but I must blow the trumpet and awaken God's people. Believe it or not, America is about to be shaken and set aside by swift and horrible judgments. Many other praying believers who have been shut in with God are hearing the very same message - 'Judgment is at the door! Prepare, awaken!'"

And dare I say many are “hearing the same message again!” to make it clear never should we seek or desire the judgement of God on another, but surely we should not refrain to speak of it as it comes. Surely now it is a time to “set the trumpet” to our mouths and warn Christians of the coming judgement. All the sins of America will not be swept under the carpet. May our prayer be “In wrath remember mercy.” Read this other excerpt of the book: “Soon, very soon, an economic nightmare will explode into reality. America is about to face a time of mass hysteria, as banks close and financial institutions crumble and our economy spins totally out of control. Gold and silver will lose their value. The chaos that is coming cannot be stopped by our government. The great holocaust follows an economic collapse in America. The enemy will make its move when we are weak and helpless. God did not keep the three Hebrew children from the fire - he delivered them in it. Christ went with them through the fire, and, whereas they came back to ruin, we will be translated to Glory.”


OUR ONLY HOPE

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom He had chosen for His own inheritance." Leonard Ravenhill stated many years ago: “There is only one hope for America and that is that we have a Divine intervention in the nation.” Has this changed? Our only hope is God. The Scriptures say: blessed is that nation whose God is the Lord! Many nations acknowledge and mention God but which are the nations that have God as “Lord!” America must come back to a nation “under” God, this is the only safety and help there will be. The midnight hour is approaching will you prepare? May God give all His saints rest and comfort, but also earnestness and unction to pray for the coming times. Trim your lamps. Watch and pray. Trust and obey. Time is short!


GROSS ATHEISM

In saying there is no God, in wishing there were no God, and in living as if there were no God is a vile and terrible sin of the nation of America. Thomas brooks wrote this in the 1600’s after a great fire destroyed the city of London: “Atheism is a sin that has brought the greatest woes, miseries, destructions, and desolations imaginable upon the most flourishing kingdoms and most glorious cities in the world. Holy Mr. Greenham was accustomed to say that he feared rather atheism than Popery would be England's ruin. O sirs! were there none within the walls of London, who said in their hearts with David's atheistical fool, "There is no God!" Psalm 14:1. Caligula the emperor was such a one; and Claudius thought himself a god until the loud thunder affrighted him, and then he hid himself and cried, "Claudius is not a God!" Leo X., Hildebrand the magician, and Alexander VI., and Julius II. were all most wretched atheists, and thought that whatever was said of Christ, of heaven, of hell, of the day of judgment, and of the immortality of the soul—were but dreams, impostures, toys, and old wives' fables.”

“Augustine, speaking of atheists, says, "That albeit there are some who think, or would persuade themselves, that there is no God; yet the most vile and desperate wretch who ever lived would not say—there was no God." Seneca has a remarkable speech, "They lie," says he, "who say they perceive not there is a God; for although they affirm it to you in the daytime—yet by night they doubt of it. Further, I have heard of some who have denied that there was a God; yet never knew the man but, when he was sick, he would seek unto God for help; therefore they do but lie who say there is no God; they sin against the light of their own consciences; they who most studiously go about to deny God—yet cannot do it—but some check of conscience will fly in their faces! It will be hard to name an atheist either in the Holy Scripture, or in ecclesiastical histories, or in heathen writings, which came not to some fearful end; and therefore no wonder if Austin would not be an atheist for half an hour for the gain of a million of worlds, because he knew not but God might in that time make an end of him. I have been the longer upon this head, because atheist and atheism did never so abound in this land as it has done these last years, and that you may the clearer see who they are, who have brought that sad judgment of fire upon that once glorious city of London. Ah London, London! it was the gross atheism and the practical atheist who have turned you into a ruinous heap!”

Oh may we say today: “Ah America, America!” Come back to God.

Amen, God will protect those that do not bow our knee through the fire. God has a remanent. A praying remanent.

Thanks Greg, we really need to wake up.



Quote:
Very important post.
Thank you for sharing.
It seems to be what the Spirit is saying to believers here in this part of the NE as well.
blessings and shalom, Savta



Quote:
Jesus was never angry with unbelievers or Atheism. He is however most upset about the ones that professed to be "His people" and are blind when tested under reality conditions. If we look at any judgment in that light it will help in our understanding and hopefully redirect our action.

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Hello everyone
Everyday I awake to the sound of Spirit of this word . There seems to be a tug of war over our souls in America, to which voice we will hearken to.
One is the world and the evil ones attempts to keep us focused on the earthy issues of life that bring every strong believer to a place of indifference, the other is the Holy Spirit who yearns for us to bring our whole hearts to Christ and the things He desires for us. Something deep within us growns over the state of the world and even those things we once sacraficed in love to the Lord we now seem less vigorious, like sharing our intense love for Christ with the hardhearted and those who oppose right living. I cant say I look for new opportunity where I once blasted the walls of difiance I once did, but this I do understand within me , that Christ my Lord is stiring my heart to see where He wants my actions and reactions to emulate Him because of my Love for Him.
My prayer for us all is to have our will and His will , to be ONE WILL.
Awake us Lord and transform us for what has been lacking in us as a blasing fire that cant be extinguihed by the fear of man or by soulish desires that satisfy only for a moment. Let us rise up and shake the dust off, admitting our passivity, renouncing our selfishness, and unwilling to suffer for His Name sake. Our comforts and places of indulgences is primarily due to grieving the Spirit- to fill the void we have gone to the world instead of our Father in heaven. The cares of this life our all around us, pressing into us for the soul purpose to separate us from the true fountain of life which is Christ.
May our spiritual pulses become stronger and may we have break - throughs of all kinds. By the grace of God I pray we all begin to hear the same things and all together shake the earth one more time before the coming of the lord. This is my prayer and my own desire to be weaned from this world in such a way I no longer yearn for any of its pride. I pray the christians around me and the whole family of God will not lose our faith through constant messages been tossed at us . We must be quick to decern our every increasing enemy , who has focused his demons to distroy our ranks, to break our relationships and to tempt us to compromise through public opinion and depression is his aim for us to fall into . So rise up children of God look ahead to the plan of the saviour who is faithfull.
PS. 68-- Let us declare in front of the Lords enemies who He is to His people, and the covenant He has made thru Blood stands against any lie the devil would say of the church, although the church is asleep , not all are ensnared to the extent the devil would like us to believe. It is Gods faithfullness to us , not our own that will ultimately show the universe who we are .

Lynn:
There is something so KEY - to this quote and is the Key to our very salvation that we might stand and also the very key to our comfort in Him.

Who has Him as "LORD?"

Yes the midnight hour is approaching and since Jesus felt it so important to speak to us through the Word about the 10 virgins - this exortation to "Trim your lamps" is a must hear and one we must heed - I will repeat:

Trim your lamps. Watch and pray. Trust and obey. Time is short!

It never hurts to be remided and to tune us in to the days in which we live and to encourage us that - UNDER HIS LORDSHIP - "WE WIN" - and that no one can seperate us from the Love of God. AMEN

Praise Jesus!! Lion of Judah!!!!

A friend and brother of mine who posts on here related a dream he had several years ago about a boat going down the Niagara River. He says there is a point on this river where it is not possible to turn back you will go over the falls. The Lord showed him that that boat was America and it had passed the point of no return. Perhaps if he reads this he will tell the story far better than me.

i say this to make a point from scripture.

In Second Chronicles chapter 34 we read about good king Josiah:

2ch 34:1 Josiah was eight years old when he became king, and he reigned thirty-one years in Jerusalem.
2ch 34:2 And he did what was right in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the ways of his father David; he did not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.


As good a king as Judah ever had. God fearing all of his days. As we read through this chapter we find out that The Book of The Law is rediscovered in the Temple . After reading it Josiah understands that judgment is about to fall on Judah. He institutes reforms and sacrifices such as had not been seen since the times of Samuel.

He then inquuires of Huldah the prophetess as to Gods heart on the matter:

2ch 34:24 "Thus says the Lord: 'Behold, I will bring calamity on this place and on its inhabitants, all the curses that are written in the book which they have read before the king of Judah,
2ch 34:25 'because they have forsaken Me and burned incense to other gods, that they might provoke Me to anger with all the works of their hands. Therefore My wrath will be poured out on this place, and not be quenched.' " '
2ch 34:26 "But as for the king of Judah, who sent you to inquire of the Lord, in this manner you shall speak to him, 'Thus says the Lord God of Israel: "Concerning the words which you have heard
2ch 34:27 because your heart was tender, and you humbled yourself before God when you heard His words against this place and against its inhabitants, and you humbled yourself before Me, and you tore your clothes and wept before Me, I also have heard you," says the Lord.
2ch 34:28 "Surely I will gather you to your fathers, and you shall be gathered to your grave in peace; and your eyes shall not see all the calamity which I will bring on this place and its inhabitants." ' " So they brought back word to the king.


Even though revival broke out and many Godly reforms were instituted it was to late, God would not repent. i am firmly convinced that the United States is in the same position as Judah.

It is not to late for individuals to repent and seek Gods mercy. However a point in time comes when it is to late for nations. It is midnight

I like the spirtual application of Josiah , many christiasns are not concerned whether the Lord sees or not, much less want to really please Him by taking into themselves His mind and will over thier life styles. Deception soon follows continued disobediance and sensual life styles. I look around at some of my friends who once were alive , livung changed lives and now 30 years later they are drinking , going to Vegas, and becoming numb to the once sober life they once professed.
Can these bones live? Yes I believe what the word of God says about Gods faithfulness, without which no man can change or come alive.

Is the seeming ecclesiastical chaos of our day the death rattle of the church or is it the moment of Gods unveiling of His master plan for the body of Christ? { written by Derek Prince}

Alot of believers today when asked if they were nurished within the churches they attend or did they graze on there own any old place they went by anyold cystern they picked up to drink. I see the lack of maturity in biblical instruction in right doctrine one reason for the corruption in there lives. Without the right blue prints to build a Christ like life the building soon falls to coruption and has a form of godliness , yet the life you live proves different. Powerless people show little evedence to the world other then religious forms.
Our problem , then , is not just getting to know the blueprint , but producing the proper materials- believers of the quality that Jesus had in mind when He designed the church . Eph. 1:9-10Shows how Jesus fulfilled the pattern of humility- He descended before He asended. The pattern of humilty is going down before you go up. Philippians 2: 5 can help any believer take hold of fresh beginnings , even if you wasted half your christian life on outward works, and neglecting inner charector.
Philps. 2:5 tells us " Let this mind be in you , that was in Christ Jesus".
THINK LIKE JESUS-- It says that He "did not consider it robbery to be equal with God".
Universial principle is this and stated in Luke 4:11 " Who- so -ever exhalts himself shall be humbled'.
Proverbs 15 : 33
This is all worked out the Kingdom way within our own free will . Eph. 5;21

Why has the church dried up to the point of starvation? Because we have failed in producing instructors and teachers who have been emptied of thier own ambition and ego. The aroma coming through our life is stale and the power of Gods approval over that which we preach has no life giving , transforming the weakest into giants of the faith today.
We are not free and we cant do as we wish , this only half the truth . In reality, we no more free than we are submissive to God. And we are no more submissive to God than we are to one another in the body of Christ
Untill each of us takes a look at ourself and where we can change our attitudes , admitting we have mingled ourselves with the world and its appitites, then we wont be able to cast out a used demom much less tangle with there big brothers.
The Fatherhood of God over His children is ever lasing , He will take the inititive once again to perfect His children as they should beand this is by His devine blueprint and construction time , which has always included redo`s because of faulity material being passed off as heavenly . The Lord can smell margarine a mile off, and no matter how much hype you put into your works or displays of spirtual , He will frustrate every move of religious man ,untill it is done as He has instructed and made by His pattern, which He does the work Himself, not us helping God out. Can these bones live? God has sent us wonderfull teachers down through every dispensation, but this generation is full of rebellion, self willed, self imposed prognosticators , and the children they teach are defiant, foolish and easily follow after what does not profit a man. And they love it so------
All the churches have become content with there religious services, even replacing the Lords presense with cliques gathered in the worlds market places, convincing its people they are ok, when infact they are dead.
We need a change of mind and a closer regathering of what God holds as praise worthy. If we begin , each in his own home to inquirer to the Lord , He just might visit us with compassion and por out His grace that enables us TO CHANGE. Dont we see what has been our delusion the whole time saints.? US, yes we have a heart that saviours what pleases man and our taken in by every false way because we still think more of ourselves and the comforts our ego gives us to be first or the greatest. Instead , let us gather to the cross and look more intently then the first, let us ask Jesus , He will show us our hearts.

All this is to prove to man , we are unable to produce anything God requires apart from His Son who did not grasped but committed Himself to His Father in heaven to raise Him from the dead.
SHOULD WE NOT DO THE SAME ????

Lion of Judah

a word for us all the hear. There is no fear of the Lord. Our children are becoming consumed by the toxic culture around them. I weep. I pray. I try to follow Jesus with my whole heart. All around me families are crashing. There does seem to be a tug of war...sometimes it is in my own family. satan is wanting our children, our marriages, our pastor's....the economy does not look good for the upcoming year. our borders will remain open and our currency may one day become the Amero. VOTE? Only Jesus can save AMerica and we need to be praying for a mighty move of His SPirit. But sadly, the church does not want to pray....most of it anyway.....they want to drown in numbing entertainment.

Sometimes I find my prayers are just "Come Lord Jesus".



Quote:
There is a famine of prayer in the land - a spirit of prayerlessness it seems. I pray for God to raise up more intercessors.

God bless, Lynn

SET THE TRUMPET TO THY MOUTH

In 1985 David Wilkerson gave prophecies from the burden of God about his beloved country America, here is a excerpt from this book and is very timely: "America is going to be destroyed by fire! Sudden destruction is coming and few will escape. Unexpectedly, and in one hour, a hydrogen holocaust will engulf America -- and this nation will be no more. America has sinned against the greatest light. Other nations are just as sinful, but none are as flooded with gospel light as ours. God is going to judge America for its violence, its crimes, its backsliding, its murdering of millions of babies, its flaunting of homosexuality and sadomasochism, its corruption, its drunkenness and drug abuse, its form of godliness without power, its lukewarmness toward Christ, its rampant divorce and adultery, its lewd pornography, its child molestations, its cheatings, its robbings, its dirty movies, and its occult practices. In one hour it will all be over. To the natural mind it is insanity to come against a prosperous, powerful nation and cry out, 'It's all over! Judgment is at the door! Our days are numbered!' The Church is asleep, the congregations are at ease, and the shepherds slumber. How they will scoff and laugh at this message. Theologians will reject it because they can't fit it into their doctrine. The pillow prophets of peace and prosperity will publicly denounce it. I no longer care. God has made my face like flint and put steel in my backbone. I am blowing the Lord's trumpet with all my might. Let the whole world and all the church call me crazy, but I must blow the trumpet and awaken God's people. Believe it or not, America is about to be shaken and set aside by swift and horrible judgments. Many other praying believers who have been shut in with God are hearing the very same message - 'Judgment is at the door! Prepare, awaken!'"

And dare I say many are “hearing the same message again!” to make it clear never should we seek or desire the judgement of God on another, but surely we should not refrain to speak of it as it comes. Surely now it is a time to “set the trumpet” to our mouths and warn Christians of the coming judgement. All the sins of America will not be swept under the carpet. May our prayer be “In wrath remember mercy.” Read this other excerpt of the book: “Soon, very soon, an economic nightmare will explode into reality. America is about to face a time of mass hysteria, as banks close and financial institutions crumble and our economy spins totally out of control. Gold and silver will lose their value. The chaos that is coming cannot be stopped by our government. The great holocaust follows an economic collapse in America. The enemy will make its move when we are weak and helpless. God did not keep the three Hebrew children from the fire - he delivered them in it. Christ went with them through the fire, and, whereas they came back to ruin, we will be translated to Glory.”
