The Lord has been dealing with my heart for several days concerning this nation, and in much prayer-the Holy Spirit has been brooding over this coming weekend, and has laid on my spirit things that have been a point of prayer for some time. I didn't intend to speak of them publiclly, but God has asked me to. So, this is for His purposes.
For some time, I've asked the Lord what His description is of this country-and what He sees, as He gazes down from heaven on this nation. This is what was given to me, and have been asked to share.
1. America-a nation adrift, and in denial. Denial of what her true condition is. The people as a whole continue to cling to past successes, and glories-that are gone, and will never return.
2. A nation who has rejected Me-their Creator, and Redeemer. They have chosen to be cursed-the devil has full access to every form of media and entertainment; and now has the helm of their ship-and will run America aground. The people have made this choice, and are living the consequences of them, and will continue to. (Over the span of this ministry, almost 10 years-I've posted many articles, videos, and material that attest to this.)
3. The majority of the people in America are willfully blind, again, it is by choice. They love their toys, their sports, games, their full schedule of life-but refuse Me, and reject My Word, and any of my counsel. They have rejected my laws, and have created their own laws-that blaspheme Me, and MY Son-Jesus, the Christ. Their gods-are many, and are leading them to their destruction.
4. The churches are dead in apostasy-empty tombs. They teach and preach confusion and rebellion-and reap what they sow. I have a remnant-that are precious to Me; as I've prompted you in years past-continue to pray for them; that they would endure to the end, and for My hand of protection over their lives, as the signs of the end of days continue to rise, and becomes more chaotic. Focus on them, and seek to bring a word of encouragement-and comfort, as My Spirit leads you.
This has been heavy on my heart for many days-and I have no pleasure in speaking this. But, I must obey the Lord.
Below, in response to the God's direction; there is a devotional for His people especially, but it certainly is also for YOU-if you will turn to the Lord, and surrender your life to Him.
May God cover His people with special strength, peace, and protection in the days to come-in whatever we may face.
Temporary Visible Things, Eternal Invisible Things
2Co 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
2Co 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
For our light affliction . . . is working for us . . . [an] eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. (2Co_4:17-18)
Our gracious God wants to use the trials in our lives ("our light affliction") to produce for us eternal blessings ("eternal weight of glory"). He intends to use our daily difficulties to enlarge our spiritual capacity to experience more fully the glorious eternal realities of knowing, worshiping, and serving God forever! The Lord desires a full, rich inheritance to await us in heaven: "For so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2Pe_1:11).
A life of great difficulty here on earth does not guarantee enriched experience in heaven. The process of earthly trials producing heavenly blessings is not automatic for God's children. Verse 18 tells us exactly when this process is occurring: "while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen." The difficulties of life are turned to eternal blessings "while" we turn our attention upon unseen realities.
Many believers waste their afflictions by focusing upon "the things which are seen." They set their minds on themselves, their circumstances, or some conventional human wisdom. Such an approach to life's problems fosters temporal frustrations, not eternal blessings. To accrue eternal benefits from temporal situations, we must look to unseen eternal resources, because "the things which are not seen are eternal."
What are these unseen things? They are the resources of the grace of God. This includes grace for consolation and hope: "Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has . . . given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace" (2Th_2:16). This also includes grace for endurance: "My grace is sufficient for you" (2Co_12:9). It actually includes "grace upon grace" (Joh_1:16) for whatever is needed.
All of this is available through daily dependence upon the Lord. "For we walk by faith, not by sight" (2Co_5:7). The Christian life is lived by faith in the Lord, not by mastery of observable circumstances. God's people enter into His blessings by trusting in Him. It is by looking to the grace of God during our difficulties that afflictions are turned into an "eternal weight of glory." Day By Day By Grace

The Lord Will Pour Out His Spirit
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.
But this is that which was spoken by the
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
