The more things change the more they stay the same… NOT. Not this time. Remember that old Bon Jovi song?
Last night I asked the Lord a question I’ve asked many times in the last few years. “What’s going on, Lord?” I had hesitated to ask again, thinking of his previous answers to that question… dark, dark and more dark! Bad, confusing, chaotic troubles ahead for America, really for the entire world.
But at the same time there will be light, light and more light! Miracles, rescues, healings, deliverances, thousands of people coming to Christ as they see the hand of God at work. In other words, a global outpouring of the Holy Spirit is coming and in fact has already begun, in the midst of that global darkness.
And so I hesitated a few moments, then asked my question and waited. This time his answer was a bit different.
Changes, he said. Many, many changes are coming. Drastic, sudden and surprising changes! Some will be totally unexpected no matter how you look at things or how you’ve been praying; some shocking and very unpleasant. Some changes will be pleasant to some people while unpleasant to others. Very soon things will be vastly different from the way they are now, in this nation and in others. Political, economic and social spheres – physically and spiritually – will be greatly changed.
As I meditated on that, I realized one thing is for sure – God hasn’t relinquished his ownership of America. He is not happy with the status quo in America and his patience has grown super thin. He let the people have what they wanted for a time and they made a mess of it. It didn’t turn out like they’d planned, now they’re angry, unhappy, anxious and miserable. Once more they are desperate for change.
And so change is coming. The Lord didn’t say how soon, but we will see it. It won’t be hidden, won’t be merely local, regional or even national.
Postscript: On June 28, 2022 at a morning prayer meeting I attend, the Lord gave me a mini-vision. I saw the great Mississippi River and the Missouri River, stretching from the Gulf to the Canadian border. Standing astride the waters of the Mississippi facing north was the Lord, with outstretched arms pointing east and west. He spoke to me and said, there IS no West coast or East coast, there is only ONE America, and it’s MINE, and I’m calling TIME.
God envisioned America, he planned it, designed it and created it, and He intends to fulfill his purpose and goal for it.
Thank you, Bette! I’ll be watching with you to see how and when this unfolds.
Praise God that no matter what changes we may have to endure, HE’s in control and those of us who follow Jesus are in the palm of His hand. May we not live in fear but in faith!
