“My time has now come to bring destruction upon the land.”

Before going to bed on September 7 2017, I heard from the HOLY SPIRIT that He was going to give me message. Upon awaking the next morning, I heard these words:

“Much destruction is coming. Have I not already told you so? This is by My hand though others have said not.

You must tell them I am coming in the storm. Many will look for Me, but cannot find Me because I hide in the storm.

I have pushed the ‘reset’ button. All things will be washed clean. All will be purged. The time has come.

I will watch over My own. They will be provided for. They must not despair of what is coming. All is in My hands and nothing is lost without My consent.

Look not back at what is coming, just press forward into My kingdom. Under My wings you will find refuge from the coming storms.

Do not delay in listening to My voice. Hearken to it. I am here amidst the storm! Get ready now!

Come away with Me, My love. Hide away under the shelter of My wings and I will keep you safe. You hear My voice: I AM the great I AM, maker of Heaven and earth. My time has now come to bring destruction upon the land. You must go and hide now. Go now and prepare for what is coming.”

Interpretation:

I want to break this message down into three parts:

  1. GOD is in the storm.
  2. GOD is hiding in the storm.
  3. Go and prepare.

God is in the Storm: When hard times come, we sometimes feel that the LORD isn’t there or that HE has abandoned us. In reality, the opposite is true! These storms that HE allows, brings us to our knees and then, from our souls springs a flood of prayers that are from our hearts. This is where we truly meet the LORD! It is with these heart-felt prayers and our cries that HE hears us and answers! This is GOD IN THE STORM!!!

“Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind.” (Job 38:1)

“Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.” (Isaiah 29:6)

During a hurricane, there is an ‘eye’ in the storm where there exists a calm, still and quiet place. All around there are raging winds, torrents of rain and destructive forces. However, in the calm of the eye, there is peace! So it is in the spiritual realm–the LORD becomes our refuge, our strong tower, and our fortress, as we run to HIM during the storms of our lives. This ‘eye’ of the storm is the ‘secret place’ where we can abide with the LORD above the waves of life. Find this ‘secret place’ and you have found GOD.

“You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the plots of man. You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.” (Psalms 31:20)

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty” (Psalms 91:1)

God is Hiding in the Storm: Does GOD hide? In the above message I heard, “Many will look for Me, but cannot find Me because I hide in the storm.” I had never heard that before. While reading it a second time, I wondered if I had heard correctly. I always want to back up what I hear with the WORD of GOD, so I started looking to see if GOD does ‘hide.’

What I found is a contrast: GOD does indeed ‘hide’ HIS face, and the flip side is that HE also ‘shines’ HIS face upon those HE favors. We all long to have favor with the LORD as well as long for HIS face to shine upon us. This favor can come if we keep drawing nearer and nearer to HIM by praying, fasting, repenting, and studying HIS WORD.

“Do not hide Your face from me; do not turn your servant away in anger; You have been my help; do not leave me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation.” (Psalms 27:9)

“And I will surely hide My face in that day because of all the evil which they have done, in that they have turned to other gods. (Deuteronomy 31:18)

“The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you.” (Numbers 6:25)

Restore us, O LORD God of hosts; cause Your face to shine, and we shall be saved!” (Psalms 80:19)

Go and Prepare: We are to go and get ‘our houses in order.’ This is an important part of the message, because I believe the LORD was not only pointing to spiritually getting ready, but physically. I felt strongly in my spirit, after receiving this message, that I was to prepare with food and water, etc.

He is giving warnings to His people so that they can prepare and be ready for what is coming. Just like with Pharaoh’s dream of the seven fat cows and the seven lean cows (Genesis 41:2-3), which was a warning to prepare for the coming famine. I believe that we, too, are going to be facing famines, water problems, natural disasters, war and economic decline.

The LORD has been so kind, long-suffering, and patient. He hears the prayers of His saints as we cry out for repentance and mercy. He holds in His hands the power to minimize or even negate the upcoming judgments ….if His people repent and pray!

We are to be responsible for our families and our loved ones by doing what we can for what lies ahead. For each person or family this will look different, but the LORD will meet us at our point of need, if we ask Him.

Pray and seek the LORD on how you are to prepare both physically and spiritually. Get your houses in order, dear brothers and sisters!

“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)

This word was given to a coworker of who I have been warning. This text was send to her Friday the 8th of September. She seem to dismiss it but said she had to share with me. What was chilling is that she said it has started.

“The Lord woke me up in the night. He said a great shaking was coming like reeds shaking in the wind. Then I saw a field of reeds with the wind blowing on them. In the middle of the field was a solid one tall, unshakable and I latched on to it. It looks like this has already started. Draw near to God and He will draw near to us.

My wife had a vision several months ago where she saw “September 8th” on a calendar and she knew it was this year. She said the world was in chaos and she was shocked at what was going on all around us.

The other night on my ride home as I was praying I heard in the spirit, ”write 100 times, ‘Not my will, but Thy will be done’.” And then I saw a teacher instructing the student at the blackboard in front of the class.

While praying for Wisdom from Above, may I solicit advice from y’all concerning the East Coast Tsunami (as noted in https://z3news.com/w/judgments-coming-america/)?

It might come right after the earth quake, or caused by asteroid, Planet X, etc. Boy, how do you prepare tidal wave as high as half the height of the Empire State Building?

Many thanks!

Be STILL and Listen to His smallest instruction. Obedience! And don’t judge by the sight of your eyes, or reprove after the hearing of your ears, but do righteous judgment by the Spirit: Meaning don’t go by your senses, but follow hard after Him, His Spirit with The Word, and He promises to lead you into all Truth. TRUST and OBEY. He is Faithful!!!!

Ming, I want to share Revelation 12 – vs.15 -16″ Then the dragon tried to drown the woman with a flood of water that flowed from its mouth. But the earth helped her by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that gushed out from the mouth of the dragon.” We need to completely trust God and know that our salvation is sealed. God might save us from the storm or take us home in the storm, either way, it is well with my soul. Pray for that peace and for God to give us good discernment. May God give you the desires of your heart.

Praise the Lord as Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma only cause minor casualty (BUT VAST DEVASTATION ON THE BUILDINGS AND INFRASTRUCTURE) in Huston America and Caribbean Islands BECAUSE the local authority and citizen prepare for what is coming, well done!!
If the preparation from local authority and citizen can reduce the amount of casualty, then the church MUST TAKE HEED THE WARNING AND PREPARE FOR WHAT IS COMING UPON THE WHOLE EARTH as the bible PROPHECY IS BEING FULFILLED. If not we cannot imagine how many christian casualty will occur that will make them fall away from God (Matt24 state Christian will betray each other, the heart will grown cold during the turbulent time).
Church! Please listen and take lesson from what happen to Huston , Taxes where Joel Osteen’s Lake Wood church been publicly criticize (even from Muslim society) of closing the church door during Hurricane Harvey. I personally believe he and the congregation caught off guard BECAUSE OF UNPREPARED!!! If you are unprepared, do you think you able to open the church door or your home to help? Many things need time to consider for preparation like man power, food & water, clothing and necessary item, money….If you think your country will not experience any shaking, then may the Lord bless you and your nation.

Not so sure about the truth of Osteen’s ministry. I saw an interview with Joel Osteen’s brother who is involved in managing their church. I Think it was three days into the hurricane. His brother said the reason they did not open their doors was because of the flooding in the STREETS near them and they felt people could not get through the water’s to the church. He did not mention flooding in the church. Then they said only one person showed up. His brother was standing in the church giving the interview. There was a clip of people sorting out donated clothes. I only know what I heard and saw. Might not want to of messed up their church with the homeless.
I also know he called and asked Jim Bakker’s ministry for donations of food to feed people. Two truck loads were sent to the area. Jim’s ministry is small compared to Osteen’s. Why could Osteen’s not afford to help and provide for some of the cost, and yet they asked help from others. Something is not right. Because they did not open their doors to the homeless, I believe the food was sent elsewhere. Look for Osteen’s brother’s interview.

This is a false message. Or rather, misinterpreted. It is God WITHDRAWING his Spirit/Hand of protection that brings Chaos & Destruction. Just as it is Light/Love being switched off that allows Darkness & Fear to enter and have it’s way.

I know where you’re coming from because it is not God’s first choice to destroy anyone, but this is not a false message, nor is it misinterpreted because it is right in line with scriptures. God doesn’t want anyone to perish (2 Peter 3:9), but He also acts for the sake of the greater good, which sometimes requires severe measures, as shown in these scriptures. Behold, I will kill your son, your firstborn.” (Exodus 4:23) Then the LORD smote the people because of what they did with the calf which Aaron had made. (Exodus 32:35 NASB) The LORD said to Moses, “I have seen this people, and behold, they are an obstinate people. Now then let Me alone, that My anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them; and I will make of you a great nation.” (Exodus 32:9, 10 NASB) The LORD said to Moses, “How long will this people spurn Me? And how long will they not believe in Me, despite all the signs which I have performed in their midst? I will smite them with pestilence and dispossess them, and I will make you into a nation greater and mightier than they.” (Numbers 14:11-12) The LORD will smite you with consumption and with fever and with inflammation and with fiery heat and with the sword and with blight and with mildew, and they will pursue you until you perish. (Deuteronomy 28:22) See now that I, I am He, and there is no god besides Me; it is I who put to death and give life. I have wounded and it is I who heal, and there is no one who can deliver from My hand. (Deuteronomy 32:39) Therefore, thus says the Lord, “Behold I am bringing disaster on them which they will not be… Read more »

Our pastor two Sundays ago made a similar statement regarding the hurricanes…that God doesn’t do that sort of thing. It didn’t sit right with my wife and I in our spirits, and we went home and came up with some of the same examples from scripture that you have here James.

The Lord will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim,he will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon—to do his work, his STRANGE WORK,and perform his task, his ALIEN TASK.Now stop your mocking,or your chains will become heavier;the Lord, the Lord Almighty, has told me of the destruction decreed against the whole land.Isaiah 28:21,22

Thank you James, for that compilation of scriptures. It is plain and clear to see God’s hand of judgment in there, even though … He only does so after repeated warnings and wooings of His Spirit toward mankind.
I have several here ( those whom God brings to me to talk or share a word or scripture, etc )who believe as Shane and those are the perfect scriptures I have needed to write down to help them see what His Word of truth REALLY says, not what the false teachers in those (buildings known as ‘church’) and the wolves in sheep’s clothing speak…
You are a blessing my brother and I thank you for what you are doing and if I may be so bold as to say, God is pleased and thanks you also. He loves seeing His children walking in truth. 🙂

The Lord just spoke to me in a still quiet voice that these hurricanes that have came, and what is forthcoming, IS from Him (on purpose) and not just from withdrawing His protection. He IS sending these judgments during this last season to draw His children back to Him in true repentance. Apologies for the first response. Wow, that was a quick, gentle but firm setting straight for me. Shane, I know that you are trying to convey that God is not the author of evil and He is not. But, He is Holy and Just. He does chastise and have consequences after so much long suffering with His children. A parent cannot look the other way indefinitely. If a parent truly loves a child, there comes a day of TOUGH love, knowing that it will hopefully lead to the saving of the child’s soul. This nation is in for some incredible TOUGH (in every sense of the word) love. God help us all.

In the video link below, Joseph Sweet gives a wonderful assessment on current events and is in full agreement with your conclusion that our Father’s will is being done…https://youtu.be/whVzMJEo4Kg…and is motivated by His immense love. These current (and upcoming) events are a call to repentance and will continue to increase in both frequency and magnitude.

Thank you Joe. I have been richly blessed by Joseph Sweet’s teaching and humility over the years and this most recent message explaining the 3 reasons for (or sources of) ‘storms’ is extremely timely and critical for the days in which we live. For those that may not know, in recent years Joseph has hosted the Lancaster Prophetic Conference at his church (Shekinah Worship Centre) in Lancaster, CA and has included speakers and dear friends of his such as Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj, Neville (and Mark) Johnson, Bruce Allen and Terry Bennett – to name just a few. Be blessed my brother.

What HS showed me is that the L-rd provided for all possible futures or eventualities, He knows all possible outcomes proceeding from each and every decision, good or bad, godly or ungodly. Thus, He has given us freewill and the ability to shape our own future/s! While knowing what the ultimate outcome will be of our collective choices. Truly, He is mighty and amazing! So, it behooves us to make godly choices. And our sinful choices affect everyone else…

I also agree with James Bailey, in that we do have to remember that He is a Holy and JUST God. The Great Tribulation is going to be THE example of our Holy and Just God and His wrath, not just His hand of protection being withdrawn. The earth and all therein is groaning. His Word says in Hebrews 12:14 that, “Without holiness, no man shall see the Lord.” MANY Christians in this nation have thrown holiness to the wayside, hence judgments have started.

I think that maybe you did not mean a false message but that all of this chaos, calamity, etc……is not from God but rather his hand of protection from evil. I agree with you, but these are not false messages of what has happened and what is forth coming. God’s Word says….. Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. Yes, God has withdrawn His protection from this nation but not His people, wherever they may be. 🙂

Just as hurricane Harvey seemed to first be taking aim at Corpus Christi, the first US territory to be effected by hurricane Irma was, I believe, the US Virgin Islands. The first of the Florida Keys was hit at 9:10 on 9/10. The bricks have fallen….

Go and prepare? That is what I have been doing today. “Go-bag” 1, 2 & 3. I then mowed the lawn and come in and read this message. I asked the LORD in prayer what scripture he wanted me to read and I think I heard Matthew 24:13, “13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved.” I read it and then read all of Matthew 24.
