“I Have Set Before You a Choice, Blessings and Curses”


Smith Wigglesworth once said, “One word from Him can change a nation.” As I read that quote I began to pray for this nation. This is the word I received.

“You say with your mouth, but you do not do. You stand with your voice, but you do not do. I have heard the cries of selfishness and desires long enough. I have heard of the killings of My people, My people, without a voice to be heard. This nation cries out for yourself but not for those that are voiceless. My word says to go out to the needy, the fatherless, and the poor. You throw a few coins at a deceiver on the corner begging and think you have helped the poor. I am a God of all nations, of all people, not just this nation. You cry out for this nation while you let My people, My people, suffer persecution, execution, and torture. You turn your heads and say, “Save this nation,” but this nation tells me to remove Myself from it.

You put in office those that have no moral foundation and speak pompous words. You have been given a gift as no other to elect, to put in office, those that would stand for Me and My ways, yet you vote for yourself and your own desires. I hear the cry of martyrs. I hear the cry of those searching for Me. I hear the cry of the righteous in heart, but I close My ears to you oh nation that would not stand for Me and the gifts I have given.

One word from Me can change a nation, but do you truly want change, or do you want continued compromise and evil to rule? I have set before you a choice, blessings and curses. Which plate do you take from? Oh nation of blessings and curses, what plate do you take from?”

I know many other prophets believe judgment is here, and there is no turning back for America. I myself have not received a word of no turning around. The Lord has only spoken to me to fight to change this nation. Therefore, I must believe that we have an opportunity even yet to get that one word from God that could change this nation, but as the Lord gave me this word I felt the door was closing, and if we did not take from the plate of blessing in this hour there will be no turning around for this nation. Hardships are coming one way or the other, but through these hardships will we rise again from the ashes?

I believe this is a pivotal point in time for the United States of America. We choose as a nation to take from the plate of blessings, or to take from the plate of curses. Our God still hears the prayers of righteous men and women and they still avail much. We must continue to fight and pray as if we could change the destiny of this land!

Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months.  And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit. (James 5:16-18)

Sherry, God bless you and your family, and thank you for this post.

Mena Lee Grebin gave a prophecy about a Revival sweeping the USA, from the East Coast to the West Coast. I believe this will happen, depending on the prayers of God’s people.

However, most (adult) people I know or know of have to be “put through the ringer” before even WANTING to find out more about Christ and his Eternally Good Retirement Plan in Heaven and a better (spiritually at least) plan here on earth. Ever hear of a godless, Christ-hating pagan saying “I need Jesus” after their promotion, their income doubles etc?. NEVER!

Have heard that 80% of the conversions to Christianity happen at age 18 or *earlier.

For the adults, God often brings the jackhammer, sledge hammer, pneumatic drill etc. (He brings the right tools, every time 🙂 )

God will put this country flat on its back (in many cases) so that people have an opportunity to repent.

After all, it easier to look up to God, when one is flat on their back? :).

God will get 100% of the glory for what happens to bring needy people to Him, as always 🙂

Thank you.

HI Sherry,

God Bless you for your obedience.

I am reading your post on 7/21, but I was dealing with a similar issue yesterday.

Issue: Pornography, Lust, etc…

I had to make a conscience decision NOT to sin against God, so I wrote down in my journal “I will not sin against God, I will not sin against Jesus, I will not grieve the Holy Spirit” and then said them out loud. I repented and asked God for help.

When I finished praying I heard the words “Repent/Turning” and He brought to my memory the words of Jesus saying that he puts before us each day Life and Death, “Choose Life!”.

God is so GOOD!!!

I opened a web browser and the first link lead me to Deut 30:11-20! Then I listened too a few podcasts from Pastor Charles Stanley on “Controlling your thoughts” and “God’s call to genuine repentance” and both were exceptional and right on point for what I was dealing with.

God loves us so much and he wants to help us, but we must first must choose!

I just thought that I would pass this on since it was a similar theme “choose”.

Your brother in Christ,

Sherry, what I get from your post is if we begin to pray for those in other nations as well; the martyrs, the ones being persecuted, executed, tortured, driven from their homes, etc., then God will hear and also heal us and this land. Does God see us as selfish, self centered, and not caring about our brothers and sisters in other nations? I don’t know. I do know when we pray for those in other nations, as well as America, we are choosing blessing and will be blessed as we pray His heart. Thank you for your posts and staying close to God and delivering His messages to us.

This urging to pray for other nations rings so true, Donna. We often think of our tithe as a seed, but the Lord showed me once that my prayers were also seeds. Interceding for another to receive healing, blessings, etc. plants a seed to reap the same in our own lives. I believe this would apply to nations as well.

Yes, our Lord is so Merciful. I believe we will see a huge awakening to God, but it won’t be until a great shaking takes place within this nation.

I also believe we should not give up on praying for our nation, states, and communities.

Prayer does change things!

Even if God brings his Judgment into full swing, I believe it can be mitigated for certain areas or groups through prayer. A good example is the city of Zoar which was spared from fire and brimstone due to the intercession of a righteous man named Lot.

probably this message will never make it on this board, but the more I look at America, the more I anderstand they deserve Obama.

What would it take for us to give our ALL to Jesus?

It would take realizing the dire and opposite consequences of NOT giving our ALL. We are in Blood Covenant with The Messiah. The purpose of covenant is to eliminate weakness. In a covenant exchange, part of what happens is exchanging our weakness for HIS STRENGTH. Our part in the covenant partnership is to GIVE OUR ALL, and then we GET ALL OF HIM!

In these end times it is particularly deadly NOT to surrender fully to Jesus.
There is increased deception and demonic activity (to name a few things).
