Exactly one week ago, on November 21, 2000, I received a very hard word from the Lord
concerning what is to come upon America. I buried it in another word on my site. Now, in
the intervening week, I have received two more words, very similar to what I wrote a week ago.
I believe the words, written here, below my post of a week ago, are from the Lord. I'm
blowing the trumpet spiritually that we must ready ourselves for hard times. I don't like it
any more than any of you. I'm not happy about it, but, it is the Lord. As Bob Neumann says
at the end of his word, I don't think it's going to make any of you happy either. Now, the
Lord is saying to post the word, boldly, once again, so that these words are heard and known.
Stephen L. Bening 11/21/2000
Warfare, storms, trouble, pestilence and economic hardship are coming to America within the
next four years, and may start very, very soon. The sword of the Lord is coming to God's
Church. New ministers are being promoted right now, ahead of the sword. The replacements
are here, says the Lord, and I'm anointing them for warfare, right now!
America needs these troubles in the same way as a cancer patient needs chemotherapy and
radiation. America needs treatment now. Delay will kill the patient.
Intercessors who are pleading with God for continued prosperity for this nation are battling
against God's purposes and plans for this nation. They are not praying in accordance with
his will. These intercessors will not prevail against the true prophets of God and the true
I say it again, God has prescribed castor oil for his child America and she doesn't want to
drink the bitter medicine. Her prophets and her intercessors don't want to drink it either, but
they must, because it is the will of the Lord.
I'll finish with this statement, which was made to me by a man of God yesterday. America
can't get to 2 Chronicles 7:14 without going through verse 13 first. The judgement that
has been written against America by the prophets is about to be executed. It is a chastising
judgement, and not a wrath. God's purpose is to kill the cancer and heal the patient. In
the process, there will be much pain, suffering and disfigurment. Just as a cancer patient
loses his hair, America will lose her glory. This is the will of God, and it is coming at it's
appointed time. Soon, and very soon, says the Lord, I will visit your land.
"Therefore, behold the days come, saith the Lord, that this place shall no more be called
the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of slaughter. And I will make void the
counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in this place; and I will cause them to fall by the sword before
their enemies, and by the hands of them that seek their lives; and their carcases will I give
to be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth." Jeremiah 19:6-7
You may ask in horror, Stephen, how are we to pray? Pray that our great physician Jesus
does his surgery with perfect majesty and mastery. Pray that it comes soon, before the
infection spreads further. Pray that it is no more severe than it need be to kill the cancer.
Principalities and powers have been aligned at the gates of America, holding back the coming
of this great chastisement. These have been defeated and cast down. We will now have it,
You may then ask, may we plead for mercy? If by that, you mean, the avoidance of suffering?
The answer is no. It must come. We may pray that God's people are protected here in
America as God's people were protected in Egypt. Pray for a New Goshen, here in America.
Pray for cities of refuge and that we will be made aware of them beforehand by the Holy
Spirit. Pray that we will have grace to help us in time of need. Pray for the protection of our
children in time of warfare. We should pray for the future provision of our food, clothing,
shelter and safety. Pray for protection similar to that afforded to the three Hebrew boys in
the fire. Pray that true Christians will be led to be away from cities on the day they are
destroyed. Yes, in these regards, we will require mercy from the Lord, and it is proper to
pray for it.
Yes, stretch out and display great faith by asking for these things before you see that it is upon
us. This will greatly please the Lord, and he will reward these intercessions.

Word of the Lord Concerning the Tower of Gammadim-11/27/00-Through Alex Puyol
Precious few have learned my delight in obedience having forgotten that I
resist the proud and give grace unto the humble. For this cause alone shall
I heap dung upon the faces of the Palestinians and those that follow after
them against my people Israel.
Now write my declaration for the Tower of
Gammadim and what shall occur there and in the midst of the congregations
that abide in my name. Though you are a small host my tidings for you are
grim for the time has come that I must sift you as wheat to remove the chaff
that I may refine you as craftsman refines gold for a better product.
no heed to the sneers of others or for the hardships that you will endure
for your names are written in heaven and are inscribed before me. For it
will come to pass that I will lock the purse of the saints and shut the very
windows heaven that the rivers of prosperity will run no more. Those extra
things you use to buy a few years ago you will find that you cannot afford
them in the days ahead, take and consider for this is the heralding sign.
For everyone from the least to the greatest will be affected. All while this
is taking place you will see on the airwaves and hear on the radio, the Most
prominent ministers of the day preaching sermon after sermon and doctrine
after doctrine, Give to God and he will bless you and I will not. I will do
many things in Florida and bring to light the hypocrisy that dwells within
your midst, there will also be many Prophets that arise and a great calamity
will befall the entire order of the Prophets, These things must be for
before chastisement and correction is brought to my bride in full. I will
first bring it to my Apostles and Prophets and they who hold any influence
within the body as a whole.
Written according to his Will

For the last two weeks i have listened to tons of political rhetoric and media manipulation. At the
same time i have watched and wept for the children of Abraham....both the seed of Isaac and
the seed of Ishmael. The WORD of GOD deals with them both in the end times. There will come
a day when THE KING REIGNS where both groups will dwell in HIS PEACE. So i look at my
nation, my people, my city and i grieve as THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL turns HIS BACK upon
them who ''dwell carelessly in the land''.
There is a ''remnant'' in this land. But it is far smaller than most may perceive. In fact, according
to THE MOST HIGH the 'american church' is made up of the ''very elect'' who believes in a lie.
For years i have grieved and travailed for the sin within the ''church'' and in the ''land''.
Once, what seems now long ago, THE ANCIENT OF DAYS told me that i had one purpose, to be
an offense to many. At the time it was sobering and definatively nothing to build on. There are
many who have been called as "prophets to the nations''. Likewise i have met those who are
anointed as teachers, evangelists, and pastors. I have been blessed to have broken bread and
''cut'' covenant with apostles. Why does GOD do such things i have wondered at times as HE has
ordained my steps and 'sent' me at HIS PLEASURE.
Maybe it is because i apreciate the humor of THE SON.
Maybe it is because HE likes to do things HIS WAY.
Or just Maybe, HE wanted to use the least expected vessel.......
Since ROSH HA'SHANNAH 1999 i have been shown a SWORD over this nation and have obeyed
when told to speak to my city, my church, my nation as HE decreed. Most of the time. There have
been times i kept silent. For which i was chastened and, thankfully, forgiven. Not many days ago
i failed HIM. Disobeyed HIM by simply not ''speaking forth''. It was the groundwork for what i am
now to do.
Few will enjoy what i will now say.
America is Laodicia.
In fact it has been so from almost the very beginning.
Today a man spoke to the nation stating he would fight to protect the right of every voter to have their
vote counted. A week ago this same man fought to keep certain votes from being counted here in
South Florida. These are the votes be ''absentee ballot'' of US service men and women at sea or
overseas who are from Miami, Ft Lauderdale, and all over Florida.
I guess he thinks little of these citizens.
Today THE LAMB OF GOD STOOD BEFORE ME WITH A DRAWN SWORD. HE ORDERED ME
to speak to the SOUTH. To declare HIS WORD and to ''chop down'' their groves.
In KINGLY humor HE SAID..."LET THE CHIPS FLY, AND FALL WHERE THEY WILL''.
In my spirit i saw three 'chips'. First was the 'poker' chips. The apostate church bet against THE KING
and are going to lose everything. Second are the ''chips'' on the sholders of the religious....the "very
elect'' who preach their own gospels for their own profit. I am going to 'frost' them big time. And third
are the chips that fly as the ''ax is laid to the tree''. All country boys know you pick up the chips because
they are great ''kindling'' material....or should i say....great with the kindling. Either way they burn both
fast and first of the tree cut down.
In July there was a movie called THE PATRIOT. Personally i liked it and 'saw' much in it as THE MOST
HOLY SPIRIT pointed things out. what i did not see was that it forespoke the division we now see in both
the NATION and the church....
Back in 1774-5-6 not every colonist wanted to rebel against England. There were many ''preachers'' who
warned against ''rebellion'' againt the King. Even today "WE KNOW'' that rebellion is like unto the sin of
witchcraft. We say it all the time about our children. But like ancient ISRAEL we do what was ''right'' in our
own eyes. So was it in 1776.....according to THE LAMB.
Ponder these familiar words....
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility,
provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our
posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
That is the Preamble to the US Constitution. Does not mention GOD anywhere.
Now maybe we listen to HIS WORDS....
And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the
beginning of the creation of God;
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art
wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed,
and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup
with him, and he with me.
To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my
Father in his throne.
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
How many times do we read and reread these 9 verses and think it's about ''those other christians''. Now
everyone knows that Laodicea was a city in Turkey that had aquaducts that brought both hot and cold water
to the city. We know that in the Greek language the term "lao dicea'' means ''the people's rights''. None of this
is unknown to anyone with a Bible with notes. What we need to see is the ONE who tells John to write these
words. HE calls HIMSELF "THE AMEN''....the LAST WORD. In verse 21 HE asks for OVERCOMERS to
come ''out'' of their blindness. This is paramount because of how HE DESCRIBES HIMSELF AS
''the faithful and true witness''. If you look at the GREAT COMMISION, HE sends out the 12 as HIS
"WITNESSES''....in the greek "MARTEROS".
Later in his writings John will tie it all together as he explains that the OVERCOMERS overcome the enemy
by THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, THE "WORDS" OF THEIR TESTEMONY, and that THEY FEARED NOT
THEIR LIVES even unto death....Martyrs for their WITNESS OF THE LAMB WHOSE BLOOD WAS SHED.
THE AMEN....THE FAITHFULL AND TRUE WITNESS will vomit out the ''lukewarm'' who think they are
wealthy and blessed, yet have no idea that HE sees them as wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked.
HE also ''knows'' their ''works'' and is nauseated. Strong image. The image of a ''place'' where ''the PEOPLE'S RIGHTS'' is a
label that fits all too well.
What is interesting is that this ''church'' is not ''in'' a city. The other messages were to the ''church'' in a
specific city. Except for Laodicia and Ephesus, and Ephesus is the ''church of Ephesus''. In Revelation
3 ''Laodicea'' the city is not mentioned. Just a people described as "Laodicean", the ''people's rights''.
"Laodicia'' is not a prophetic city, it is a prophetic ''mindset'' where WE THE PEOPLE comes first.
With this idea look at some other ''familiar words'' from 224 years ago....
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands
which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the earth, the separate and
equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of
mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self - evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their
Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the
consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is
the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such
principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and
Throughout my life i have held these words as the foundation of America. AMERICAN DEMOCRACY....
''of the REPUBLIC'' for which it stands'' i have 'pledged' my allegiance to over and over. I never held them
up to the WORD OF GOD, because i 'knew' it was GOD'S WILL that AMERICA is the nation it is....
THEN HE SPOKE, and i listened. And i lined these ''words'' with HIS. Do these ''words'' exalt and magnify
MY ABBA? Does ABBA respect the ''Course of human events'' above, beyond, outside HIS WILL? Does
HIS WORD tell us to ''break bands''? Does HIS WORD call us to ''assume'' anything?
When i read "amoung the Powers of the earth'' i now immediately ''recall'' Ephesians 6 and the need for
the ''full armor of GOD'' to ''withstand the wiles of the enemy''. And from there it is all down hill.
Does ABBA teach about "Laws of Nature''?
Does HE elivate the ''opinions of mankind'' above HIMSELF?
Are the "self-evident truths" spoken long ago a reflection of THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE?
Does 'government' ''derive'' from the 'conscent of the governed'?
Here THE WORD does speak loudly.........
Look at what Paul placed for us in Romans
Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of
Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves
For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is
good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in
vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to
If THE WORD is taken as greater than man, then to ''resist'' secular authority, for any reason, is indeed rebelion against GOD'S
WILL. Paul gives us no ''justification'' to declare independance from any government,
no matter how evil it becomes. No where does ''tribute'' require ''representation''. Just obedience.
All that ''rebellion'' is, is ''witchcraft''. No matter how it is 'justifiable' or 'rationalized'.
Now we can ''quote'' these ''platatudes'' everytime we ''preach'' on ''submission'' of children, especially
concerning teenagers. Or when we assault once again ''the spirit of 'jezabel' ''.
No matter how bad the ''abuse'' of authority has become. Here Paul speaks clearly........
Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice
and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,
Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of
regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
Here Paul starts with the issue of ''being'' subject and warns us to be ''gentle'' and to exhibit the kindness
and love of GOD as we were shown through THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. To do ''every good work'' in
spite of situations ''according to HIS MERCY''.
But Paul was not the only one to speak on this....Peter added his two cents. And if THE WORD is of GOD,
he wrote as THE MOST HOLY SPIRIT directed. Man can not negate it....no matter how hard he tries.
Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;
Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do
For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.
Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.
For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.
For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer
for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.
For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his
Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness:
by whose stripes ye were healed.
For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
Once again THE WORD starts with submission to ''government''...here 'king' is mentioned.
And once again we are given THE IMAGE of THE LORD JESUS CHRIST and the ''issue'' of being
'acceptable with GOD'.
Is revolution and rebellion ever 'godly'. Does ''our rights'' justify anything except for damnation?
These are the thoughts i have had to deal with for several months.
Not because of watching a movie called THE PATRIOT....but because i disobeyed my GOD.
I rebelled against HIS AUTHORITY by being ''silent''. No matter how i ''justifed'' it, ''rationalized''
it, i was called to make accounts with my GOD who i had said i would love and obey.
So now i have a choice.
To obey, and pay whatever price it requires.....
Or to sin again.
not an easy choice if 'my rights' are more important than......
IT IS WRITTEN ""THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM''''....
not the end....or the 'means' used to justify 'the end'.
and that is the issue.....
and for a 'moment' i ask you to ''weigh'' my words.....
and ponder HIS WORD as IT IS WRITTEN.....
WHY DO THE WICKED...... prosper and flourish?
THE SWORD OF THE LORD HAS BEEN UNSHEATHED.
OUR LAND HAS AGAIN BEEN DIVIDED. AND ALL SIDES
RILE AGAINST EACH OTHER. LAWS ARE FLAUNTED AND
CHALLENGED IN THE NAME OF ''THE RIGHTS'' OF MAN.
MAN'S LAWS ARE SPOKEN OF OVER AND OVER, AND
GOD'S LAWS WERE TRAMPLED LONG AGO.
WOE TO YOU ''REBELLIOUS'' CHILDREN, SAITH THE LORD,
THAT TAKE COUNCIL, BUT NOT OF ME; AND THAT COVER
WITH A COVERING, BUT NOT OF MY SPIRIT, THAT THEY MAY
ADD SIN TO SIN.
INDEED, THIS IS A REBELLIOUS PEOPLE, LYING CHILDREN,
CHILDREN THAT WILL NOT HEAR THE LAW OF THE LORD;
WHICH SAY TO THE SEERS, 'SEE NOT'; AND TO THE PROPHETS,
PROPHESY NOT UNTO US 'RIGHT THINGS', SPEAK UNTO US
SMOOTH THINGS, PROPHESY DECEITS:
''GET YOU OUT OF THE WAY!
TURN ASIDE OUT OF THE PATH!
CAUSE THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL TO CEASE FROM BEFORE US.''
AS YOU HAVE WISHED AND DECLARED, IT NOW IS.
FOR I GAVE YOU MY STATUTES, SAYS THE LORD,
I SHOWED YOU MY JUDGEMENTS, IF YOU WOULD
HAVE DONE YOU WOULD HAVE LIVED FOREVER.
MOREOVER I GAVE YOU MY SABBOTHS AS A SIGN
BETWEEN YOU AND ME THAT THE WHOLE WORLD
WOULD SEE THAT THEY MIGHT KNOW THAT I AM
THE LORD THAT SANCTIFIES, PROVIDES AND
BUT YOU REBELLED AGAINST ME.
YOU WOULD NOT WALK IN MY STATUTES.
YOU DESPISED MY JUDGEMENTS.
AND MY SABBOTHS YOU POLLUTED GREATLY.
YOU SAY YOU ARE WEALTHY AND IN NEED OF NOTHING.
YOU SAY YOU ARE BLESSED AND PROTECTED AND
SO I GAVE TO YOU YOUR HEARTS DESIRE.
YOUR OWN STATUTES YOU DESPISE GREATLY.
YOUR OWN JUDGEMENTS YOU CAN NOT LIVE WITH.
YOUR OWN SABBOTHS ARE POLLUTED WITH
EVERY LIE AND DECEIPT MAN AND DEMONS
YOUR HANDS FREELY SHED THE BLOOD OF THE INNOCENT.
YOUR LOOK IS OVERLY PROUD.
YOUR TONGUES HAVE NO HESITANCE AT SPUEING LIES.
YOUR HEARTS ARE CONTINUOUSLY WICKED.
YOUR FEET ARE SWIFT TO CARRY OUT THE HEARTS EVILS.
YOUR WITNESS IS NOT OF ME, THE TRUTH, BUT YOUR LIES.
YOUR SEED IS DISCORD AND STRIFE AMOUNG YOUR BRETHERN.
AND NOW THE ACCOUNTS WILL BE SETTLED.
AMERICA, YOU HAVE BEEN WEIGHED IN MY BALANCE AND
ARE FOUND WANTING. SO NOW I WILL CUT OFF FROM YOU
THE RIGHTIOUS AND THE WICKED. I WILL SEPERATE THE
SHEEP FROM THE GOATS. I WILL HARVEST MY WHEAT AND
BURN THE TARES AS THE WIND SEPERATES THE CHAFF FROM
FOR THE TIME OF SLAUGHTER BEGINS. YOU HAVE ENCAMPED
IN THE VALLEY OF DECISION AND IGNORED MY REPEATED CALLS
AND KNOCKS. I COULD NOT AWAKEN YOU FOR YOUR SLEEP
WAS BROUGHT UPON YOU BY YOUR OWN WANTONNESS, YOU
OWN DRUNKENESS, YOUR OWN WICHCRAFT.
I CALLED YOU TO SERVE ME.
I SENT YOU TO BE A WITNESS FOR ME.
BUT YOU COULD NOT OVERCOME YOUR OWN SELVES
LET ALONE THE ENEMY.
I LAUGH AT YOU AMERICA FOR YOU HAVE MADE YOURSELF
WHAT YOU ARE. YOU RAGE AGAINST ME AND HAVE CHOSEN
YOUR OWN WAYS.
I CALLED FOR YOU TO WEEP AND WAIL, TO HUMBLE YOURSELVES
AND TO TURN FROM YOUR WICKED WAYS. THOSE THAT DID SOUGHT
MY FACE AND FOUND THEIR SALVATION IN ME.
BUT AMERICA IS AN ABOMINATION IN MY SIGHT.
SO MOUNT UP ON YOUR HORSES AND RIDE IN YOUR OWN GLORY.
BELIEVE YOUR LIES AND YOUR DECEPTIONS. SERVE YOURSELVES.
I HAVE MY OWN WILL AND MY OWN WAY. I WILL EXALT MYSELF.
I NEVER NEEDED YOU AS MUCH AS YOU BELIEVED.
NOW YOU SHALL SEE.
that is it....
for what we are about to receive.....
no one will be greatfull.
Come see what's on the inside!
