Report From The Tower
This is a critical TIME. We must be discerners of the times.
"When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. And in the morning, It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky, but can ye not discern the signs of the times?"
God said that the men of Isachar were men who knew the times. They knew what they ought to do. More choice still was Abraham, a man whom God had to show what He was ABOUT to do. As Bob Neuman has mourned, Oh Lord, return to us the days when you showed us what your were about to do. We need to have that gift of foreknowledge, flowing through us, that you reserve for your friends.
The prophetic word that Bill Deagle had regarding Y2K in May, 1999 was from the Lord. He received his word within four days of when the Lord spoke to me regarding Y2K. Both of us received the same basic word, but with some differences. Bad events around Y2K would not center on 1/1/2000, but would come later, after people had grown complacent. His word had the "11 to 13 cents on the dollar" advice regarding the purchase of emergency preparedness supplies.
We were advised by the Lord in that prophecy that when we are able to purchase these things at these prices, we are to BUY BUY BUY. It is now a buyers market for survival gear and preparedness items. We don't know how long we have available to us. We are to BUY, BUY, BUY as wise men, saving up for our Christian brothers and sisters, not simply storing away things for our own selfish preservation. Examine your hearts.
Since January 1, 2000 passed without a wimper, I have periodically looked around to see whether I could find emergency preparedness items for 11 to 13 cents on the dollar. I have checked ebay many times. My favorite item to search for has been the "Big Berkey" water filter, and the ceramic filtration candles that do the purifying of the water inside of the Big Berkey. I have always believed that when I saw that item at that price, it would be a great road sign that would indicate that all the trouble that Y2K threatened in 1999 was indeed now nigh well upon us.
Yesterday marked the first time that I have seen such items at such prices.
Some people out there in internet land are saying that Stephen Bening is saying it all begins on February 17, 2003. I NEVER SAID THAT! I said it would begin on some future February 17, or the 17th of a month. I have never been sure about the year. "IT" is a seven year American Tribulation. I will admit that February 17, 2003 is certainly beginning to look like a very plausible date of fulfillment. I have had suspicions about that date as early as last August, and I said so then.
February 17, 2003 looms only 9 days away. Five US Carrier groups will be in or around the Persian Gulf. The USS Kitty Hawk, and the USS Abraham Lincoln will be among them. Judgement has begun with the house of God. False prophets have been exposed, Assemblies found wanting have been shorn of their hair, and False apostles have been exposed. Y2K preparation supplies are available for 11 to 13 cents on the dollar on ebay as was told to Bill Deagle by the angel Gabriel. Fire has fallen from heaven and the remnant of God has been tremendously empowered by God to endure whatever may now begin and to bear fruit. Our president has been warned with a hand delivered message from a servant of the Lord that if America does not repent, she will suffer 50,000 casualties in the war with Iraq.
Everything has been fulfilled that I have ever been led to look for prior to the next sequence of events. I was reading Bob Neumann's "Thunders" a few days ago, and I am quite certain that Thunders 1 and 2 have occurred. Look at what is coming in Thunder 3 and 4. Next on my list are these five events:
1) Loss of US Carriers and shipping to nuclear attack. This begins seven years of American tribulation.
2) San Andreas Fault 9.0 earthquake submerges large section of California.
3) Isaiah 9 war against Israel by several Arab confederate nations seriously devastates Israel, but also defangs Israel's Arab neighbors.
4) Israel becomes rich through some means, possibly a great oil discovery.
5) Israel recovers from war, and dwells in safety.
Everything prior to these events has now been fulfilled by my reckoning. How long do we have?
Walk closely now with the Lord Jesus Christ. Do not assume that we have more than 9 days before these events commence, but remember that Satan may do nothing without permission from the Lord. Make your Holy Spirit led preparations in the Spirit and in the Natural. Honor the Lord with all that you do. Stay awake. Wake up if you are asleep. Be vigilant. Seek the Lord while He may be found. PRAY, PRAY, PRAY.
One prophet whom I respect greatly has prophesied that this war with Iraq will go very well, and that America will enter a short period of great prosperity.
If this war at hand goes well, and we enter a time of unparalleled prosperity, do not lose your focus. Redeem the time. Do not assume that all is well. Realize that biblically, God always sends unparalleled prosperity just before the land vomits out it's inhabitants. God always causes events to occur in such a way that his true prophets appear to be utterly false to those who will not turn to Him, repent and seek His face.
It is all about Jesus...Everything is unto Jesus...Everything is and has always been for the messiah.
When these events commence, no man will be able to help you. You will need the Lord like you have never needed Him, and you will know it. You will need to be able to hear His voice. Fear will paralyze your neighbors. It will freeze you if you are not firmly set upon the rock of Christ. You have already needed to be so set. It is very late. Be alert.
If these events wait, you will need the Lord just as much, because it will mean that we still have space to do great exploits in service to the Lord our God.
Some of you who are reading this have walked as prophets, and as apostles, and now, you are clueless. Repent! Get on your face before the Lord and beg Him to take you back. Get people around you to beg with you. If you are prideful, and you continue on, you will have no way out. Humble yourselves now.
Some of you pastors are still presiding over the dog and pony show. Stop it now. Get on your faces in your dead churches and weep. Beg God to take you back. Do it NOW! Ask Him to show you what He wants you to do. If He has departed from your assembly, DO NOT CONTINUE ON WITH THE DOG AND PONY SHOW.
Do any of you have ears to hear this?
We are to hope all things. I can only hope and make supplication, that in this, your "day of the Lord", that you will take the advice of the prophet Joel, and weep between the porch and the altar.
"Therefore, also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him"
Stop your secret sins now. Beg God to deliver you from lasciviousness. Ask for restraint and deliverance.
To the remnant whom God has recently empowered, the Lord says that you are not to exalt yourselves over your brethren who still remain in assemblies whose hair has been shorn. Humble yourselves, and pray that all whom God has called to come out, will come out from the dead assemblies. Pray that all who have ears to hear will hear, and obey.
