I received the following word on September 15, 2018 at 2:26 am. We rarely listen to, or watch, news related (politics, economy, weather, etc.) information.
“The days ahead will start a wave of change against the church. Many will not stand, they’re already faint of heart, but hide it through their wealth and the many activities of escapism. Fear of the future is just underneath the smiles of many. Unrepentant and arrogant, they continue to amass followers and friends who support their own plans, and their own idea of what they perceive a Christian should be.
They are without love, mercy, and understanding. They seek their own way in all they do and rarely believe My word and My prophets. These same ones will be unable to stand, when, because of My name, they will be hated. Begin, now, to speak of their duplicity and their need for Me through sincerity of heart and mind.
Even those who now prophesy of My coming glory are quickly cowering in anxious fear of the cost they will pay to prophesy in My name. Strengthen your knees in prayer. Strengthen your hands in worship of Me. Turn from falsehood in every area of your lives. Give no room to the enemy of your soul – no room. Do not succumb to the false church or the false doctrines; out of fear, but remain near to Me in sincere humility.
Your current President will cause a course correction that will lead to increased tensions, but he will not do so without the cooperation of others who’ve been whispering in his ear to persuade him of certain ideologies. He is under duress (definition: threats, violence, constraints, or other action brought to bear on someone to do something against their will or better judgment). He is My instrument of correction in this nation.
The next season will be unlike any other. Eruptions of civil unrest will become common. Societal discord will increase. Debates will become common among neighbors, tempers will run high. Many will attempt to falsely accuse the other when it is discovered they bear My name. Trials of afflictions and sorrow will increase. Your only escape is found in your stability in Me.
Your denomination will not matter, nor your wealth, nor your friends. Each one will carry their cross, or leave it in favor of a Judas Iscariot mentality, simply to avoid hate. Be prepared by rendering your souls to Me in complete humility. Be ready by living in true holiness of mind and heart. Be ready to see My love be your protection as you speak by My wisdom.
Take heed to My warnings and do not despise them, for they will keep you in the hour of trials yet to come.”
But as for me, I will call upon the Lord to save me, and I know he will! Every evening I will explain my need to him. Every morning I will move my soul toward him. Every waking hour I will worship only him, and he will hear and respond to my cry. So here’s what I’ve learned through it all: Leave all your cares and anxieties at the feet of the Lord, and measureless grace will strengthen you. (Psalm 55:16-17, 22 – TPT)
In the same way that gold and silver are refined by fire, the Lord purifies your heart by the tests and trials of life. (Proverbs 17:3 – TPT)
You call yourself a mighty man, a big shot? Why do you boast in the evil you have done? Yet God’s loyal love will protect me and carry the day! “See what happens to those great in their own eyes who don’t trust in the Most High to save them! Look how they trusted only in their wealth and made their living from wickedness.” (Psalm 52:1,7 – TPT)

Songs of the Lord were prevalent during the night watch in the mid-1990’s. In 2019, at the instruction of the Lord; once again, the harp was finally incorporated after 17 months of harp lessons with Christy-Lynn from Learningtheharp.com. Zephaniah 3:17 is the foundational scripture for this Psalmist.
