These are crazy days that we are living in. There are prophetic words coming to pass at a rapid, rapid rate. When we look at the activities that are taking place within our government today, there is no rational reasoning to make sense of what is going on. Interestingly enough, if any person or American family were to spend money like the American government is spending money, they would be put in jail. It’s crazy to even have this thought, but the agenda is to crash the system. This is the Cloward and Piven Model that is attempting to crash the very system that American depends on, the economy. The goal is to drown every American with debt and lock us into the snares of personal debt and be dependent upon the Government.
The Lord just spoke prophetically to Pat Hamilton about what is taking place at this very momentin a night vision. As Pat shares, “in the vision I’m seeing the whole Earth being held under water by a ball and a chain.” What is interesting is that the ball and chain didn’t sink to the bottom. In the vision, Pat knew that ball weighed about 200 lbs.
WEIGHT OF SIN
Pat continues, ‘everything was being held, suspended in air keeping it from sinking to the bottom by this invisible force, and I knew this had to do with America, the Church, and the whole world…and it was God who was keeping the weight of the ball from pulling us all the way under and drowning.’ It wasn’t sinking. And everybody was slowly drowning but they didn’t know it.” It’s only by the mercies of God that He keeps us from drowning.
God also showed Pat what this ‘ball and chain’ represented. “That represents all of our gods, all of our idols, you know, any cares, concerns, fears that we have, you name it, fill in the blank…anything that is not Him. And He’s saying, ‘if you’ll let go of it, I’ll pull you out’”.We are causing our own pain. Look at what is happening across America, across the whole Earth right now. The world itself is trembling.
IT WILL KEEP GETTING DARKER UNTIL
When the late John Paul Jackson asked the Lord what would happen as the Lord showed him the headlines of the many terrible things that will happen to the earth and the people of the earth, he was told, “things will get darker and darker, until my people cry out to me. It will continue to get darker and darker until they do.” God is waiting for us to cry out to Him. The answer is the Lord. Imagine that! Crying out is an acceptable response to the Lord. When you look at every life that God moved mightily through, it began with desperation. It only begins when you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired. There must be some type of desperation, that nothing else but the Lord will satisfy. The Lord revealed to Pat the significance of the ball and chain weighing 200 pounds,“Wicked, insufficiency of money, beauty, religion, and external things, in the worship of God, something in the place of God. Idolatry. So, that’s what that whole thing represented, was idolatry.” It’s interesting to note, that is exactly what the Lord told Jonah in Jonah 2:8‘Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs.’ We all need grace to walk this walk with the Lord.
If someone has problems letting go of these idols, it’s only they think they are their savior, their god. Not to have them in their life, means to not to have life they deceptively think. One’s life is often difficult because they refused to let go of their worthless idols. God is a jealous God. He is serious. We cannot mistake His mercies for permission. Considering the nation is drowning right now, it’s a good time to let go of worthless idols. God is wanting His people to cry out to Him. As 2 Chronicles 7:14 reveals, “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
DESPERATION MOVES GOD
When we sincerely cry out to God in repentance, He will hear and He will answer. Look at the miraculous provision of how the Lord made the woman’s body to immediately provide the milk a nursing baby needs when she hears the cry of her baby. The very thing the baby needs, milk, is produced at the sound of the baby’s cry. How powerful is that? Romans 1:20 states, “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” Only God knows what idols you are holding in your heart. America is being brought to a point that we mustdecide do we want our own small “g”gods, or do we want Jesus Christ as Lord? Ask God to search your heart and to show you. When you do, be prepared to acknowledge things you have made idols as sin, repent, ask for forgiveness and don’t pick them back up. Ask God to keep you by His Spirit. God doesn’t mind when we have things in our lives, but He does mind when things have us. Are we more focusedon idols, like a sports team, telling people that we support a team, wear their jersey, have their pictures on our walls and tell everyone how much we love them, but at the same time we are ashamed to tell people that we are followers of Jesus, never wear His name, and have no pictures of Him or His story up in our homes, or workspaces? Did you know that if you are ashamed of Jesus, He is ashamed of you? Did you know that if you are shamed of Jesus, He will be ashamed of you before God? Mark 8:38
JESUS REVEALS THINGS ONLY TO HELP THEM
We are at a point right now where many young people are being told that God doesn’t exist, and that government can provide all their needs. Why is it, when government plans to set itself up as the answer for people, through Communism, and Marxism, it first tries to convince the people it’s over that God doesn’t exist? Because when mankind knows that God exists, that He wrote His laws on every man’s heart, that He created the universe and all that is in it, including man, he doesn’t accept someone setting themselves up or the government up “as god” as their provider and sustainer of life.
This is not by accident. Mark this, the day is coming when there is a “church” that is accepted by a communist, Marxist type of government, that the government funds and accepts, and the true Church, that follows Jesus and makes herself ready for His return. This is the very reality of what has taken place in China. We must spend time with Jesus, abide with Him, and obey Him. This is the very life that Jesus has called us to live, to be fruitful for Him. Remember, that Jesus is revealing these things in our lives because He loves us and wants to free us from captivityfor, He came to set the captive free. When a person serves sin, they are a slave to that sin. Jesus wants you to be free!
