All day long, the Lord has been speaking to me, from the scripture, regarding this subject. I awoke tonight from a short nap, and the Lord spoke to me from Psalm 94:

"O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, show thyself. Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud. LORD, how long shall the wicked triumph? How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?"

My friend Bob Neumann and I had a long talk today. He began speaking to me from Isaiah 5 and I had my bible open there already, at verse 20:

"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for the reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Then, late tonite, during my final phone call of the evening, the Lord spoke again. The party I was speaking with wanted to read 2 Thessalonians chapter 1:

"7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power."

Why is God speaking of these things: tonight? In my writings of the past few days, I have discussed the deep darkness that has begun to cover the earth. Also, I have discussed that trademark characteristic of the day of the Lord: the occurrence of the unexpected.

Sixty days prior to December 24, God told me to expect a wave of his spirit. I paddled out to that wave, figuratively speaking, and was greatly blessed. But on the day of the expected arrival of that wave, the effect on me was that I received wounds in the house of my brothers.

God has not dealt with me in this way before. He is teaching me something new. I was expecting blessing, and I received, first promotion and spiritual sight, then harm and suffering. As I have sought the Lord about this, he has indicated that what happened to me is about to happen in the world around me. Light is expected....darkness will occur; prosperity is expected... poverty will occur; blessing is expected....cursing will occur. Expect the unexpected.

I am left pondering, in light of what has happened, that the days of deep darkness have commenced. The church, and indeed the world, have begun to slide down into those deep ocean trenches: places of deepest darkness on the earth, where the pressure is intense and the cold is unimaginable.

Doug Fortune, Bill Burns, Bob Neumann and Stephen Bening. From our separate prophetic hills, we have all seen these waves coming. But like people who go to look at the Matterhorn from different directions, our reports would seem to indicate that we each saw a different wave coming.

I saw the wave of blessing coming. What I did not see was that when it arrived, it would pile up to a height of a thousand feet and reap massive destruction at the shoreline like a great psunami spawned by an earthquake in an ocean trench.

Last night this message was rammed home as I looked at pictures, on PBS, of the great Galveston hurricane and the destruction it wrought in that place. Nothing larger than a board of lumber was left intact.

God had given me the word "place of slaughter" 60 days ago, but I did not know how to fit it into my understanding of "waves of his presence". Certainly, deep darkness has begun to cover the earth, and yet promotion has come to the prophets of the Lord and God's servants, who have been told to "Arise, for thy light has come. The glory of the Lord has arisen upon you." And yet, in the next verse, the usually optimistic prophet Isaiah speaks of the deep darkness.

Bob Neumann said today that we will be as submarines, moving silently, almost undectable, in the deep darkness that is coming upon the earth. We will carry great destructive power and capability for spiritual warfare, just like a Trident Submarine, but we will run below the surface. We will not attract a lot of attention to ourselves in the natural and will, in fact, appear to be rather unimportant.

What I am saying here is that God has given promotion and has poured out his glory because we will need it for survival. We will also need it in order to be that light that we are called to be in the midst of the darkness. Deep Darkness is covering the earth. The day of the Lord is a day of darkness, not of light, yet we are called to illumine that darkness. For those of us in the America's, we have not yet suffered to the shedding of blood. We may be priviledged to experience that in the near future.

It is being reported today that a church was destroyed by bombing in Indonesia. Dozens were killed during Christmas services. Yes, the sword is coming. It is here. The countries are going to fall like dominoes to the muslims and to the communists. The things that we argue about today are going to seem like so much mindless chatter when the really big psunami waves of God's vengeance reach our shores.

Yes, as Alex Puyol prophesied to me from Germany a few months ago, the spirit of the Lord has grim tidings for those in the tower of Gammadim. Yes, those who are with me in the America's are in for a very rough ride.
