“My People Must Brace Themselves for Impact! Suddenly Things Will Change”

brace_for_impact
During my early morning preparation time on April 3, 2016, I heard the Father speak the following word to me

“The hinges of sanity have fallen off the doors of America! Insanity, madness, and murder have entered her doors and gateways. Every unclean spirit will now manifest itself as this nation invites them to inhabit this once sanctified place and people!”

“Up is down and down is up. Wrong is right and right is wrong. America has lost her direction. Her moral compass is broken. She is lost at sea!”

“Civil unrest is upon this nation. Agitators will ignite this fire that will not be put out until the new system is in place.”

“Banking, law and politics will now go south. Not in direction, but in perception. The banking system will implode upon itself.” (The Father made it known to me concerning this statement about Law that He is referring to the Supreme Court laws to come. We haven’t seen anything yet.)

“Politics at both federal and state levels will mirror each other. States will cave into the pressure of the federal government concerning everything from LGBT rights, to the increase in taxation. Though this is already happening, we will soon witness the increase of conservative states caving in to the pressure, because of the threat of federal money being withheld., There will not be a difference between the two; they will operate from the same book. The American people will now realize what has happened to them, but it will be too late.”

“America will now see the rising of the Beast system. It will be too late to stop it for those who become awake during its birthing!” (No amount of revolt will change the course of this System. It will be a crushing system that will not allow dissent to flourish.)

My People must brace themselves for impact! Suddenly things will change! The media will no longer be able to spin the propaganda of false peace, false stability, and false comfort. For the reality of this nations fall is at the door!

After the Father gave me this word, He led into another prophetic parallel for our nation.  As with any word, pray and study for yourself.

The burden of the valley of vision. What aileth thee now, that thou art wholly gone up to the housetops? (Isaiah 22:1)

Jerusalem was considered the valley of the prophetic, the place where the word of God flowed from; the city of the prophets, the city of the beloved psalmist David. It was God’s city, the apple of His eye. (Zechariah 2:8)

From Jerusalem, the Law of God was spread to the known world, but the prophet Isaiah was inspired by the Father to call it the “burden” of the valley of vision. Jerusalem had become apostate, and had rejected the warnings of the prophets. They left their first love as a nation.

Today America is walking step by step in prophetic parallel with ancient Israel. We are the valley of the prophetic in relation to the world. We are the seat of the gospel being sent to the world. No other nation has more churches than we do. No other country has mission ministries that circum-navigate the planet like we do. We send translators across the world, bringing the light of truth to languages that have never seen one verse in print. When disaster strikes anywhere in the world, American ministries send life-saving relief within hours to help those in need. Just look at the reach of Christian television, and media ministry. With a click of a button, the world can hear or read the gospel!

The Father is using this verse to allow us to see our reflection in the mirror of ancient Israel/Jerusalem.  We have become the “burden” of the valley of vision because of our sin, apostate churches, and pagan preachers! We are the same as they were! Look at verse 3:

All thy rulers are fled together, they are bound by the archers: all that are found in thee are bound together, which have fled from far. (Isaiah 22:3)

Israel’s leaders had fled the fight! They were bound; they had no weapons to help the people. The same thing is happening right now in our churches here in America! We have no real leadership telling us to prepare for the coming calamity, and carnage. They are cowards who won’t preach the truth nor tell the nation that sin is still sin and the wages of it are death!  We are allowing the nation that is the seat of the gospel in so many ways, to go to hell in a hand-basket! Our cities are being besieged, our children are being spiritually and physically destroyed, while we watch another episode of Pimp My Pastor, live every Sunday morning at a church near you! I love the church, but our nation is on fire and it’s getting harder to find a prophet on TV or radio willing to burn with Holy Ghost fire!

Verse 4 is where we should be, right now!

Therefore said I, Look away from me; I will weep bitterly, labour not to comfort me, because of the spoiling of the daughter of my people. (Isaiah 22:4)

Here is Isaiah the prophet of God, with the heart of God, crying out for what he sees happening to his people. America needs prophets like Isaiah thundering across the land, preaching repent, repent! Instead our leaders stand in their ivory towers begging, “More offerings, more offerings!”

My prayer is that Holy Ghost fire would leap off this printed page and ignite a fire so deep within us that all of hell would take notice!

Where is the true church? Our day of reckoning is coming. Our time of judgment is at hand! But do we really care what will happen to this nation BY the hand of God?

For it is a day of trouble, and of treading down, and of perplexity by the Lord GOD of hosts in the valley of vision, breaking down the walls, and of crying to the mountains. (Isaiah 22:5)

In verses 6-7 we see our enemy is not only at our gate, but at our throat, and we don’t even know it!

6 And Elam bare the quiver with chariots of men and horsemen, and Kir uncovered the shield.
7 And it shall come to pass, that thy choicest valleys shall be full of chariots, and the horsemen shall set themselves in array at the gate. (Isaiah 22:6-7)

Every time a pastor or minster doesn’t preach the words of righteousness and holiness, he enables our enemies to take more territory. How? God says any nation that forgets Him will be turned into hell (Psalm 9:17)! It is very obvious by our fruit in both our churches and nation that we are currently under new management.

The Father showed me through the following verses that many in the church will try to prepare, and to protect themselves, but it will be too late. Yes, God will protect His own, there is no doubt about it (Psalm 91), but the lethargic, backslidden, treasonous church, the ones who spew doctrines of demons will pay the price for their iniquity. Will they be saved from the flood of calamity and chaos? That answer lies within their hearts and within their mouths to repent and call upon the God of Heaven.

And he discovered the covering of Judah, and thou didst look in that day to the armour of the house of the forest. (Isaiah 22:8)

This verse refers to the armory that Solomon built in 1 Kings 7:2-3. Judah was exposed, the city was besieged, and now they run to the armory, but it was too late! They realized there was value to returning to the discarded truths of the past, but their enemy was already there. Listen, this is going to be the scene of multiplied thousands of churches if we don’t wake up now! Pastors, get back to the armory of the word of God, and pull out the weapons of our warfare! (2 Corinthians 10:4) Pull out the weapons of prayer and fasting. Blow the dust off the altars of your churches and call for a night of prayer and repentance! We need to get back to the basics of Christianity before it is too late!

9 Ye have seen also the breaches of the city of David, that they are many: and ye gathered together the waters of the lower pool.
10 And ye have numbered the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses have ye broken down to fortify the wall.
11 Ye made also a ditch between the two walls for the water of the old pool: but ye have not looked unto the maker thereof, neither had respect unto him that fashioned it long ago. (Isaiah 22:9-11)

These three verses speak of the people of the city running around trying to protect themselves to no avail. They went to the breaches of yesterday, areas they should have fixed, but didn’t. It was too late! They forgot their help, the lifter of their hands and head. To obey is better than to sacrifice (1 Samuel 15:22) and I am pleading with the church to wake up, sound the alarm, fix the broken and vulnerable areas of our life!

And in that day did the Lord GOD of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth. (Isaiah 22:12)

The Father is pleading with us right now; calling us to repent with sincerity from the depths of our souls. My fear is it is too late for many in the church, too late to listen to this cry. Their hearts are hardened, their minds polluted with the things of this world, and their ears filled with tripe they call the gospel. I’m not talking about their salvation; I’m talking about their survival! Their ability to be a part of the greatest harvest the world has ever seen!

I fear verses 13-14 are the destiny for many within the church. Let’s party while the Titanic sinks to the bottom of the abyss! God is with us, He is for us! This is their mantra as the alarms and warnings are silenced by the sounds of festivals and false revivals.

13 And behold joy and gladness, slaying oxen, and killing sheep, eating flesh, and drinking wine: let us eat and drink; for tomorrow we shall die.
14 And it was revealed in mine ears by the LORD of hosts, Surely this iniquity shall not be purged from you till ye die, saith the Lord GOD of hosts. (Isaiah 22:13-14)

Is there any hope? Yes! The Father has set aside a people within a people, a nation within a nation, a church within a church! There are many who will not bow a knee to the god of the American church enterprise, but will follow the Lamb wherever He goes. Yes, I have hope in the remnant church. I have faith in the fact that the Father has a plan and a people. If that is you then this word will not offend you, but ignite you!

In conclusion, I asked the Father, what shall we do with such a strong word and the current realities where are facing? Here is what I was instructed to do: Brace yourself for impact. How? By answering this question; what would you do if you knew calamity was coming? How would you prepare for it?

He then gave me instructions, which I will share here. Do a 360-degree inventory of your life. Look for the breaches, the holes in your relationship with Him. Firm up areas where you know the enemy can gain a foothold. Practice using your spiritual weapons, and earnestly ask the Holy Spirit to show where you and your family are vulnerable to the enemy and the coming storm.

Please read the rest of the Isaiah chapter 22 to see the prophetic parallel of the changing of the guards. Verses 15-25 speak to the future when Jesus reigns as King and our burdens will be removed forever! Amen!!!!

I too feel the beast system is coming, if it has not already started, with the persecution we are already seeing. If you do not accept or promote the immoral lifestyle of gay marriage or accept Islam you are now considered hateful. This is if you hate what is evil and perverse and an abomination or hate the false terrorist teachings of Islam. The world has become so reprobate that they now think evil is good and good is evil just like the Word said would happen. I have been persecuted with friends and family having rejected me for standing for the truth and am very alone now. I’ve been praying for God to send send someone to my farm in the mountains of Oregon to help me prepare this place for when the collapse of the economy occurs or the rioting takes place as part of God beginning to pour out the judgments on the world. I do not believe we are suppose to hide and not be a light to the world. Jesus said not to put a lantern underneath a basket, but I do believe we can go into the cities to preach the word of Jesus and repentance before this disaster happens all the while preparing a place of refuge. We can also start our own Holy Ghost , spirit filled meetings with power, repentance, deliverance and salvation. I think most churches here are lukewarm and I have been stunned by the coldness, lack of love for the Lord and each other from other believers. Love is a fruit of the Holy Spirit but the church is not bearing this fruit in America. It is as the Laodicean church and most of the people are asleep not realizing the times we are in. We can also… Read more »

Fun fact:
The TITANIC passenger liner ship.
On 14 April 1912, four days into the crossing and about 375 miles (600 km) south of Newfoundland, the Titanic hit an iceberg at 11:40 p.m. ship’s time.
This was 104 years ago today.
In the early morning of 15 April 1912, the Titanic sank.

The San Francisco Earthquake of 1906
The earthquake struck the coast of Northern California at 5:12 a.m. on April 18 with an estimated “moment magnitude” of 7.8 and a maximum “Mercalli intensity” of “XI” (“Extreme”).
Earthquake anniversary (110 years ago) will be next Monday.

Thought maybe you folks (that enjoy the synchronicity of numbers) might enjoy these historic event date occurred in April.

Bracing for Impact is the point of the article.
Icebergs and earthquakes!
The Unsinkable and the Unrepentant…emblematic?

“Today America is walking step by step in prophetic parallel with ancient Israel.”
Thank you pastor for the given Word and the powerful Bible Study of Isaiah 22. I am always amazed how the Bible cycles its messages through the timeline of humanity.

Certainly Mystery Babylon is facing the fire and judgment of the first half of the Book of Isaiah. The Word also promises us a great end times revival and a spiritual awakening for many. The evidence for this is seen in the second half of Isaiah…. which presents the salvation, comfort, and reign of our savior… Jesus Christ.

But the instructions given to you were clear. Before we can lead others to Christ… we must do a 360 degree inventory of our own life. I needed to hear that… and to be reminded that my salvation is fundamental and essential prior to being able to successfully help others. Sometimes it is easy to assume our salvation, instead of constantly examining our relationship with God. Thanks for the reminder.

Brother Faircloth..

This is what God has spoken to Dr Patricia Green in the process of writing her book on Revelation:

I heard Holy Spirit speak to me this about the lukewarm church. “Stagnant! The majority of My church is stagnant. My church has bought into the ways of the world. They don’t respect the sanctity of life and they turn their heads away from the abortions that are occurring. My church doesn’t understand that abortion is murder and those who do understand choose to do nothing. They think that abortion is just another political issue to be debated. My covenant of marriage is not honored and when trouble arises in a marriage, the first course of action is divorce. Marriage is entered into lightly without understanding that it is a covenant that is not to be broken. Homosexuality is an accepted way of life, but it is an abomination to Me. Those who know that homosexuality is a sin refuse to speak against it because of fear. The majority of My church is stagnant, just like the empty pond you see. There is a small amount of life in the lukewarm church just as there is in those two shallow pools of water. I have a remnant of people in this church who have life and have not bought into the ways of the world

Thank you Pastor Benjamin for sharing this word. I want to share something with you that to me is amazing how the Lord continues to confirm his word again and again. Confirming by 2-3 witnesses. On Sunday night, Literally, without exaggeration 10 minutes before reading your post on Z3, I had just finished sharing a Very Troubling dream I had the night before (Friday night) with my husband. In the explanation of my dream to him, I made a statement that I later found exactly quoted the same as you had stated it. I will share with you what my dream was and the confirmation of the statement by way of the Holy Spirit. I believe your message confirmed what the Holy Spirit revealed to me. I will start this first by sharing that this year already I have had three dreams that I believe are from the Father to burden me to pray for the Bride of Messiah and to pray for the awakening, the quickening and the strengthening Of the Remnant and His bride. This time in my dream I was the bride and I found myself frustrated because I was getting married again for like the fourth or fifth time. I was very agitated about this. I did not want to keep getting married. Then I saw the groom, but not his face. I greatly desired him. I went to give him a kiss, but and he said no, that it was not right to do so yet, in front of others, but to wait. I then left him to go finish getting ready for the wedding and I saw ladies that were helping to prepare for the ceremony and I told them that we weren’t ready yet and they said no problem, the guests still have… Read more »

Matt Smith. Right on my brother.. In Acts Chap20 the Apostle Paul said ” The Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardship face me. However, I consider my life to be worth nothing if I can only finish the race and complete the task the LORD JESUS has given me. The task of witnessing to the gospel of the grace of GOD” Should you and I ask for anything less??

Thank you both for your kind words and prayers. I do hope and pray for the Lord to answer these soon with sending someone. I trust that Jesus is in control and I will be patient waiting for his direction. He is Lord of the whole universe, is totally righteous, good and loving, and knows all that is and is to come.

There have been several geophysical events impacting land masses bordering the Pacific Ocean in recent days. The only land mass that seemingly hasn’t been affected appears to be the United States. Perhaps the people on the West Coast of the US should take note of this?

Sujit,
I was just talking to my husband about that this morning. We are in California and I told him I think the US might be next to have an earthquake. I sure hope I’m wrong, however it might take the earth shaking to wake most people up. God Bless!
