The Church-Dare to Defy Her!

Dare to defy who? The church? Who me? Are you kidding?? They will call me a back slidden sinner trying to avoid my responsibility to assemble together and pay my tithes, etc. OK, that was years ago, and yes I did and yes they did too.

I was pretty well raked over the coals for “daring to defy her” and leave the church once and for all. It was a very traumatic episode in my life because it was kind of like a slave running away from the slave master that had controlled their lives. Once outside, on the road to freedom, with the LORD leading the way, I felt the liberty of being truly free to serve Him the way He wanted me to, and not under the authoritarian, patriarchal, controlling Nicolaitan religious system! Praise the Living God!

I love this prophecy by Steven Crowder that the LORD gave him many years ago, “Dare to Defy Her”. The LORD spells it out very clearly. To be sure, He has been calling His people for almost 2,000 yrs to come out of the Pharisaic religious system that bears no resemblance to the early church Jesus set up in the Book of Acts. A Holy obedient people. Today’s Christian looks nothing like those in the primitive church. Today you see a bunch of spoiled Laodicean, “rich, and increased with goods and have need of nothing” Starbucks, Big Box type Christians that run from the refining fire of God and the flesh crucifying Cross, just as the Hebrew children ran from the mountain where the Holy Purifying God Manifested His Presence.

 

Dare To Defy Her (Steven Crowder)

“Come Out Of Her, My People!”

I moved to southeastern Washington and lived near the Snake River for six years. During that time, I sat by banks of the river and recorded what the Lord showed me. After the sixth year, I was blessed with a heavenly visitation, followed by a very difficult series of events that led to the writing of this prophecy. The hand of the Lord was very much upon me at this time, and it was during this period of strong anointing that I spent the next eighty days experiencing what you’re about to read, followed by writing down what I’d been shown. It is my great hope that this message will be a blessing to those who still have an open ear to hear what the Spirit of God is saying to His people

Your Brother—Steven Crowder
On the eleventh day of the eleventh month in the year 2001, the Lord sent me to a destination in Washington state, twenty-two hundred miles distance, and He said, “There is an eight by forty home awaiting you at the end of this journey. Reside there, near the Snake River, close to Hell’s Gate, on the way to Hell’s Canyon, and wait patiently for Me at this place until I show you what you’ve been sent there to see.”
And so I dwelt there for many days, and I was thrust into the Refiner’s fire until I cried out with all that was within me for deliverance, and through Him I was able to overcome these things, not by my strength, but through His Spirit that strengthened me. And the wife of my youth was there with me to help me through this difficult trial. And the Lord said, “I have delivered you and strengthened you to overcome these generational curses, and I have caused you to be sick at even the thought of these things. From this day forth, remember that I have a work for you, so be careful not to defile yourself in any way.” And I was grateful for this, and greatly humbled. And I heard a song being played over and over again, and the word were: “I’m here waiting in the wings.” And then the Lord said, “I am also bringing your brothers and sisters through My refining fires at this time, so that they can become overcomers, and this is the reason that they’ve been made to endure these difficult times, because My true vessels are vessels of honor, says the Lord. These are vessels formed by My hand and passed through the fires of My choosing. Those who endure My fires shall be made into vessels capable of holding the new wine, and all others shall not be fit to hold that precious anointing that I shall pour out liberally and without measure. Behold, it shall be a new thing, says the Lord! And all who see shall be amazed, and all who call themselves by My name in that day; yet who have not been purified, they shall seethe inwardly, although their masks shall speak otherwise.”
In the early morning hours of my forty-eighth birthday, I was taken into the heavenly realms, and it was so overwhelming that my heart was barely able to contain the joy! Within the weeks that followed, a series of events occurred that baffled me, and at times they overwhelmed me. This gave way to anger and then to overwhelming grief, and afterward, the veil was removed and my eyes were opened to what was occurring in the spirit realm concerning these matters. And then the Lord spoke to me and said, “It was eleven years ago when My Spirit fell upon you, and with trembling hands you recorded the message entitled, ‘Woe be unto you all you enemies of the cross!’ Now, behold, and write down what I will show you, for this is what becomes of and what will become of these enemies of the cross, these conquerors who call themselves by My name, yet who have continually practiced non-payment.”
And I said, “Lord, what do you mean when you say ‘non-payment’?”
And the Lord said, “Non-payment! Behold what will become of these conquerors. Show them what I spoke through your pen eleven years ago, and then show them what will become of them if they do not repent and change, if they do not separate themselves, if they do not come up higher into that place that has no leaven.”
And I said, “Yes, Lord.”
This is the word of the Lord given eleven years ago. February 1997
“Woe be unto you all you enemies of the cross! To all ye who say, ‘We do not want this man to rule over us,’ woe be unto you! Woe be to you who merely take My name to cover your sins, yet who refuse My cross, My bread, My robes of righteousness—yes, even Me, says the Lord! Woe be unto you who embrace covetousness and refuse correction—who turn My house into a social order and not a house of worship.”
“Woe be unto you who have drawn My watchmen near to merely tickle your ears! When the strong messages come, instead of contrition, you embrace murder to protect your idolatrous hearts! And how you murder My servants—though they come to you in love and in a spirit of hope. Instead of repentance, you have opted for murder you sons of Cain! My wrath is even now being kindled against you—you who take My name and bring reproach upon yourselves in sight of all and for all to see.”
“And behold, here is your judgment, even now [in 1997]—because you have chosen to make My house a social order and not a house of worship and prayer, and because you have chosen to shout and not bow down before Me—behold, your prophets shall hear a mixed word, for none draws close enough to hear with clarity My still, small voice amid the din and the uproar of your congregations. It is true that the gifts are without repentance, but a leavened, mixed word does not bring the life that you think it does; it only leads to lukewarmness—and that I shall not tolerate. A contrite heart and a broken spirit I shall not despise, but shouting, lukewarmness and pride I shall reject, says the Lord !”
“Behold, the day is coming when you shall look, and behold, the righteous man shall not be found among you, and only partial words mixed with vain imaginings from your lukewarm prophets shall be heard—words that do not bring life.”
“Woe be unto you who are at ease in Zion! Woe be to those who say, ‘Rapture! Rapture!’ and refuse to pay the price of bearing their cross—you who refuse to lift a finger, yet lay heavy loads for others to bear. The spirit of the Pharisee is upon you, and you likewise will perish if you do not repent! Woe to you who have assumed charge of My household, yet who beat My messengers who come to you for your correction. Do you not know that I will come upon you in an hour that you are not aware of, and I will cut you to pieces and assign you a place with the unbelievers as your reward? ‘Peace and safety,’ you shout, and in so doing, you deceive yourselves from any preparation!”
“Woe be unto you who seek the deeper things, and embrace Jezebel and not Me, says the Lord! My paths will lead you to the cross. The true treasures of the Living Word lie through and beyond the Jordan, that place of death to self. Jezebel will lead you to circumvent the cross and not go through it! Have I not said that I am the door to the sheepfold, and all who enter in must enter in through Me? (John 10:9) In fact, there is no other way that you can partake of the true heavenly treasures but through Me and through the cross of death; wherein you will indeed find life. Pray that you will understand this! But woe be unto you who have twisted the cross and made it a dainty thing, for it is not a dainty thing, but it is an instrument of death! In the very spirit of Rome, you have carelessly romanticized the cross and taken away its use!

Woe be unto you!”

 

“O’ My people, it is not My desire that any man should perish, and therefore I have made provisions for you, but you must accept the paths that I have chosen for you to walk upon! My paths lead to life, but that life only comes through death. When you let the cross do its work in your life, then you shall then know the power and the life that is hidden from the proud. Won’t you hear My voice? Draw near to Me and I shall draw near to you. Look therefore to Me, and not to any man. Draw near to Me and hear My still, small voice. Behold, the day is coming when the proud shall be swept away, therefore humble yourself before Me, and in My time I will exalt you, says the Lord.”
The Lord further counseled me and said that the distorted cross that man has created [as a replacement for the true cross] that this is an evil thing in His eyes, and that to twist the cross and to take away its intended use is to deny its power, and that this is one: an abomination and two: a judgment to anyone who refuses to repent of this.
The Path That I Was Put Upon

In the year 2002 I was given a job in a kitchen, where I worked preparing food and washing dishes. After five years, I was promoted to the management position, and the owner praised me and told me that I was doing a good job. The owner of this business was my boss, and I answered directly to her. She had a daughter from a previous marriage named Crystal, and she stated that she had divorced her first husband because she said that she had “never loved him and that she got tired of serving him.” After she divorced her first husband, she lived a carefree party life, acting more like a wild teenager than a responsible parent. Eventually she got pregnant, and then she remarried, this time to a man that was almost young enough to be her son, and through this marriage she had two sons, whom she named “Clay” and “Dusty”

Her daughter from the previous marriage also worked in the place where I was employed, and when she first started working there she was kind and polite. However, this all changed as soon as her mother allowed her to have any authority, and after this power was given to her, she became full of venom and hatred. She walked around in a very haughty manner, abusing all of the employees, myself included. I tensed up every time I saw her, because she really enjoyed hurting people, and she did that as often as she could. She was entitledto do this because her mother was the owner, and she allowed her family members to do things that anyone else would be terminated for doing. When my eyes were opened to see what was happening in the spirit realm, I saw a demon inside of this daughter that manifested itself through a quick smirk, a smile that took over her face directly after she would purposely injure someone.
One morning I was ordering supplies for the restaurant, and the daughter told me to order a particular item. I told her that I couldn’t do that, because her mother had told me not to order this expensive item any more, due to a smaller budget. That’s when the demon inside her manifested, and she attacked me. She began ranting and screaming at me, and I was thankful for the peace that the Lord gave me to endure this without defending myself. She told me that “this was what my problem is, that I always have to be so dramatic about everything!” Then she screamed at me, saying “Just do what I said “Just do it! Just do it!” And then she sarcastically shouted, “Thank you!” before stomping off in her indignation.
Although I was shocked at what had taken place, I stood my ground and I didn’t bow to her pressure, for I’d been told what to omit from the purchasing order by her mother, who was the one in authority over me. [Note: this part about operating under the authority placed over you is very important] In the end, the mother caved in to her daughter’s controlling ways and she let her get what she wanted, letting her over-rule her authority, rather than standing her ground with her. For several weeks after this incident happened, this daughter would spit venom in my face at every opportunity, and she was so controlling and manipulating that despite my best efforts, her mother would always side with her in order to keep from being attacked by her, the daughter that she “supposedly” had authority over. In the end, the mother told me that I could only work on the weekends, because her daughter and I could not be in the same building at the same time. The daughter’s self-righteous, controlling ways, complete with mercilessly punishing anyone who dared to defy her [self-imposed] authority ended up ruling, trumping even her mother’s authority! I could not afford to only work on the weekends, and it was then that the Lord blessed me with another job that didn’t require any effort to seek out. When I put in my notice, I told the mother that I’d given them five and a half years of faithful service, and that I’d done nothing wrong to deserve the treatment that I’d been made to endure. There was no bitterness or hatred in my heart toward her, and I told her that when she gives in to her daughter’s controlling ways that everyone ends up suffering. And, with that being said, I put in my two weeks notice.
I returned to my home after putting in my notice, and that’s when the Holy Spirit opened my eyes and explained to me what had just occurred, and He assured me that He had placed me there for the purpose of seeing and experiencing this particular highly symbolic sequence of events. He reminded me that He’d previously sent me thousands of miles to dwell in places that I’d never been before, and to take heart and be encouraged, because, just as I’d been positioned in these previous places in order to eventually prophesy, I had also been placed in this kitchen for the same purpose. So, with this in mind, to those who have an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying, here is the interpretation.
The First Level of Interpretation is Given

There is more than one layer of depth to this interpretation, and it’s best to start with the simplest one.
The Lord said to me, “What is the daughter’s name?”

And I replied, “Her name is ‘Crystal.’”

And the Lord said to me, “This is because what has happened through her shall be made crystal clear, so as to instruct My people, to warn them and to encourage them. Also, what has been shown here is purposed to call those who still have an ear to hear My voice to ‘Come out of her My people, be ye separate, I will be your God and you shall be My people.’”
And as I pondered this, the Lord opened up my understanding.
He said, “The woman who had authority over you, she is a picture of the modern-day [religious] church. She was married to someone that she neither loved nor wanted to serve, although when she espoused herself to this man, she called herself one of My people, and she promised to remain faithful to him before Me. The daughter that she brought forth from this loveless and unfaithful union is truly made in her image, and she protects her at all costs, even when she knows that it’s wrong to do so. This daughter is so loved and cherished by her, because; in her eyes, she sees her as an extension of herself—an expression of what she has produced and how she has “evolved.” The mother is a picture of the carnal [fleshly, unchanged] church who will always justify the actions of her daughters, because she herself has been taken over and is being controlled by a conquering spirit—that spirit that rides upon the white horse, going forth “conquering and to conquer.” (Rev.6:2) Her firstborn is named Crystal, and she too is a conqueror; in fact a much stronger and more determined conqueror, foul within her heart, filled with spirits that I allowed you to see, and she takes great pleasure in her fleshly beauty and in her ability to punish anyone who would dare to defy her self-imposed authority, and, although they are “innocent in My eyes, they are guilty in her eyes.” The mother did not deal with or become accountable for her own life, and hence she is powerless to deal with or hold accountable her firstborn’s life, and now that this daughter Crystal has grown up, the mother is being controlled and conquered by her to the point that she will defend her at all costs, having lost the ability to discern good from evil. By living vicariously through her daughter, she has been forced by the spirits of darkness to call good evil and evil good, lest she too gets mercilessly attacked by this rebellious daughter. By living this way through her daughter, the mother is able to justify her flesh, and by justifying her flesh, this is proof that she is under the influence of a conquering spirit, for to admit defeat and be changed by the hand of the Lord would be to lose control, and conquerors always have to be in control.”
“The Lord’s overcomers overcome by the blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony, and because they did not love their life even to death. (Rev. 12:11) They do not control things around them or attempt to conquer the world through knowledge, using their heads “like goats” in order to get what they want. Remember back to the garden, when Eve was beguiled and chose the tree of knowledge over the tree of life. Like sheep, the Lord’s true servants merely follow their Shepherd wherever He leads them. It’s that simple, and yet man has made it so complicated! The Lord’s true servants walk upon the paths of His choosing, and by doing “this,” they’re given a testimony, because they willingly laid down their lives in order to follow Him. They’ve laid aside their own plans, willingly walking away from them, so that they can be led by the Spirit of God, hence, ‘following Him wherever He goes.’”
The Lord instructed me further, saying, “The woman who had authority over you had this authority through the proper means, because she owned the business that employed you. Her daughter’s “authority” was self-imposed, and she demands that everyone bow to her wishes, because she operates out of a very strong ‘conquering’ spirit that has to control everyone and everything around her. You were under the authority of someone higher than her, and when you stood your ground and refused to let this daughter named Crystal control you, that was the trigger that set loose the demon, and hence you were attacked and then accused of the very thing that she was doing. When she said that you were being ‘dramatic,’ it was her way of accusing you and berating you in an effort to control you, just as this same tactic works with her mother, who has lost all control over her. This same technique is also used on everyone else that she comes into contact with. She had; and still has, no authority over you, and when you wouldn’t bow to her demands, she did the only thing that she was capable of doing, which was to stomp off like the spoiled child that she is, and then she plotted against you to make sure that you paid for your transgression. That is the reason why she was so venomous and hateful toward you after you dared to defy her.”
“Crystal” is her mother’s firstborn, the product of a loveless marriage, and the children from her second marriage are named “Clay” and “Dusty.”

 

“To admit defeat and be changed by the hand of the Lord means to lose control, and conquerors ALWAYS have to be in control!

Thus saith the Lord”.

The Next Level of Interpretation


The Lord’s true overcomers do so by the blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony, and because they did not love their lives even to death. By laying down their lives and all the ambitions that come with them; which simply means their own plans, the Lord is able to set them upon the paths of His choosing. He is the Great Shepherd, and it is always His desire to bring His sheep (meaning His children) to maturity. It is always His plan to bring His children past the flesh life and into spiritual maturity so that He can fill them with His blessings—blessings that the world (worldly-minded) cannot receive or even understand! And, just as the Great Shepherd laid down His life in order to serve, the Lord desires to fill His servants with gifts so that they too can lay down their lives and serve in a greater capacity. However, these servants; these vessels, must be passed through His refining fires and they must endure these trials before He can pour out a greater portion of His Spirit into them. This is exactly like a clay vessel that is formed by the potter’s hands and then it has to endure multiple firings in a very hot oven before it is a finished product, capable of holding the oil that will be poured into it. To pour oil into an unfinished vessel would be foolish! Hence, the oil of the Holy Spirit is only poured into those vessels that are capable of holding it, and He is the one doing the pouring! There are no “Holy Ghost Bartenders,” as some have claimed to be. If people want to argue about this, then argue about it with the Lord. I’ve said what the Lord gave me to say concerning this subject, and the Lord has sternly warned me to not argue with people about it or to even discuss it. Again, the Lord says this—“If you want to argue about this matter, then argue with the Lord and not with a man!” Although the Lord has and does use people to pass on His blessings through the laying on of hands, this is only done by the leading of the Holy Spirit. So much of what you see concerning this subject which is occurring in the Inner Court Holy Place of Religion is a show at best, and a sham at worst. Remember, there is a difference between the Lord’s true followers and those who merely operate under the guise of religion. The religious church and the true church are not the same thing!

The Lord desires for all of His servants to take on His nature, which is the nature to serve. The Lord desires for all of His servants to grow and mature so that they can produce fruit. Mature trees produce fruit, and immature trees do not. The Spirit of the Lord comes looking for fruit in His servants, and this fruit only comes from mature trees. And what is this fruit? It is the fruit of the Holy Spirit. (Galatians 5)
The Lord tells us that to the person who has, more will be given, and as you walk faithfully in what you’ve been given, more will be given to you, and it’s then that you’ll begin walking in abundance, and also in authority—not a (self-imposed) authority of yourself, but because you’re following the Lamb, walking in the Spirit, and under the orders and direction of the Holy Spirit, you will be walking in His authority when He tells you to do something. And, when you’re walking under the authority of the Lord, you will not bend to the authority of another. God’s Word says “My sheep hear My voice, and to the voice of another they won’t hearken unto.” (John 10:4,5) Those earthen vessels that mature and endure the fires of His choosing will be filled with that which the Lord desires to put into them, and as they go forward doing His work, they’ll know His voice of authority, and to the voice of another they will not hearken unto. Thus saith the Lord!
Now, please come with me for a moment, as we need to return to the kitchen, seeing that this is the illustration that the Lord used.
The young woman named Crystal—she had no authority over me, and when she gave me an order that I was instructed not to do (this ordering “not to do” being given by the person in authority over me, this person who was in a position of greater authority than the daughter named Crystal), I dared to defy her (Crystal). When I “dared to defy her,” it wasn’t because I was being rebellious or argumentative, it was because I was obeying and honoring the authority that had been placed over me. The daughter named Crystal is a conqueror, and conquerors always have to be in control. I was guilty in Crystal’s eyes but not in the eyes of the Lord. I “dared to defy her,” just as Luther dared to defy her (the “religious” church), when he nailed his 95 thesis on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, being God’s mouthpiece to “come out of her My people.” Luther “dared to defy her,” and his protest caused him to become the very first protestant. Sadly, the modern-day church has lost her protest, because they refuse to defy her! “Why is this so??? I inquired of the Lord.
I asked the Lord, “Why do God’s people refuse to defy her [the religious church] and why have they lost their protest”
I also asked the Lord, “What is a ‘protestant’ that lacks protest?”
And the Lord answered me, saying, “A protestant without protest—this person is merely a talker and not a walker—a protestant in name only, with nothing to show for it. These are trees without fruit. With many, it’s because they’ve lost the ability to discern good from evil.”
“And Lord, what does that mean?” I asked.
“Behold, she sits as a queen, and she says in her deceived heart, ‘I am not a widow,’ meaning that she claims to have [Me] as a husband, and, she also says, ‘I will never see mourning,’” He answered.
“This is the modern-day church that operates out of a counterfeit spirit—the spirit of the Great Theatre. And, as I spoke through My servant Ezekiel, My sons of Zadok will teach the people to discern the difference between good and evil. (Ezekiel 44) This goes much deeper than teaching My people to obey ‘thou shalt not’ laws—the good and evil here means that which is holy and true and that which is profane and not true—that which is not true—meaning counterfeit, artificial, false, in place of, antichrist! The Lord will bless those who overcome with the fullness of His Spirit, and there will be people in the religious sector that will attempt to walk in this, but it will be a counterfeit anointing, a mock Holy Spirit, a mere fabrication that will be able to fool the many, but not the few that are truly walking in My Spirit, says the Lord! And this counterfeit is an evil thing! In and through the spirit of the Great Theatre, they will play the role, they will pretend and act out, making this ploy appear genuine, but the only thing genuine about it will be that it will be genuinely false. And My sons of Zadok will be there to show the people how to discern the difference between good and evil, between that which is genuine and that which is not. Behold, this is the word of the Lord!”

The Difference Between the Genuine and the Imitation January 11, 2008
And as I laid upon my bed this night, I dreamed intensely, and the hand of the Lord was upon me in a powerful way, and He ministered to me even as I slept, saying, “Come out of her, My people that you may not partake of her plagues!”
And again, I heard Him say, “Come out of her, My people, and be ye separate. I will be your God and you will be My people!”

And a third time I heard the Lord pleading with His people,

“Come out of her, My people, that you not partake of her plagues!”
And I said, “Lord, what plagues are you talking about?”
And the Lord said, “Do not be deceived. God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his or her flesh, shall from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit shall from the Spirit reap eternal life.

And, being greatly intrigued, I inquired, “Lord, how do they mock you?”
And He replied, “Mock, imitation, counterfeit. They mock Me in their assemblies! They call another spirit My Spirit! Come out of her My people, that you not partake of her plagues, for I have given them what they truly wanted, for they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved!”

And I said, “Lord, how did this happen? How did this happen?”
And the Lord said, “They did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved, and for this reason I’ve sent upon them a deluding influence so that they might believe what is false, mock, counterfeit, in order that they would all be judged who took pleasure in wickedness.”
And I said, “Lord, what is this deluding influence?”
And He answered me and said, “They refused to go up the mountain like Moses and Joshua, ‘lest we die,’ they said. They refused to carry their cross and let it do its work in their lives, and in doing so their flesh remained alive and I answered them according to their flesh and their fleshly desires. Behold, they have set up idols for themselves.”
And I said, “Lord, what are these idols?”
And He replied, “They mocked Me in the houses that they say they’ve built for Me, which; in most cases are nothing more than monuments built to honor themselves! And in these houses they mocked Me, saying, ‘This is the Spirit of the Lord! This is the Spirit of the Lord!’ when it is NOT My Spirit, but a counterfeit spirit according to the flesh! These perpetual children that refuse to grow up, they have produced the only fruit that immature trees produce, and by their fruits you shall know them! They refused My cross, and in its place they embraced a fleshly cross, so I have sent upon them a deluding influence so that they will call another spirit My Spirit! They embraced a fleshly cross, one that did not crucify their flesh and put it to death, and they refused to ascend the mountain with Moses and Joshua, ‘lest we die,’ they said. They wanted the self-life and the life of the spirit at the same time, and I answered them according to their desires. And, like tares, they will all be gathered together in order to be burned, so come out of her, My people, that you may not partake of her plagues, these tares that look like wheat, yet there is no fruit! Behold, this is what happens to those who become enemies of the cross!”
And in a terrified voice, I shouted, “Lord, this is a terrible thing!”
And the Lord said, “The great and terrible day of the Lord! A great day of blessing for those who have gone through the cross and walked according to My ways, and a terrible day for those who have become enemies of the cross, walking according to man’s substitute ways—the fleshly cross. Woe be unto them! To those who mock Me in their assemblies, woe be unto them! To those who have said in their hearts, ‘We do not want this man to rule over us,’ woe be unto you!”
“Now show them the vision of the cross,” the Lord said to me.

And I said, “Yes, Lord. This is the vision that You showed me in the eighth month of the eighty-eighth year.

Message to the Heartland!

I recently saw a blog with a report that not only was this a false prophecy but that I was a false teacher for posting it. The criticism seemed to stem first of all concerning Watchman Report who produced the video. Also, there was included within the body of the video, a reference made to the 144,000 and 44. Admittedly, this baffled me as well, since I know Steven Crowder to be a true prophet who would not prophesy anything that was not of God. As I pondered this, and questioned the Lord about it, I have since come to the conclusion that Watchman Report inserted this into Steven’s prophecy when making this video, for whatever reason. I have since requested the full text of the prophecy from Watchman Report, so that I may examine it for myself. As of this date, I have not heard back from them. To complicate the issue, I seem to be unable to find online the original copy of the text of this prophecy as given to Bro. Crowder. Also, Brother Crowder is somewhat of an enigma, and reclusive. This is not an indictment against him. Instead, he doesn’t seem to be one of those seeking to make a name for himself. For since when do God’s prophets have to be “brand names” or big shots? God forbid. As for Watchman Report, I do not endorse either them or their teaching. Nevertheless, as we know from the Word of God, the Lord can even use a donkey to speak if he so chooses. That said, if the small portion of this prophecy was changed by Watchman Report, that does NOT negate the entirety of the prophecy as being true, nor Brother Crowder from being a true prophet. As for me, I have attempted to shed light on what I feel may have happened, as I wish to bring truth and light to the people of God, not confusion. The Holy Spirit will show true believers the truth and also the error that may have been introduced by Watchman Report without throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Finally, the words, ” From Steven Crowder’s own words” were added by whomever posted this on Live Leak, and I don’t seem to be able to delete them. Obviously, if Bro. Crowders prophecy had been somewhat altered by Watchman Report, and the prophecy compromised by them, then that portion is “not” in Brother Crowder’s own words! Let the reader discern!

In the autumn of 1994, the Lord spoke audibly to me, and He told me to go into the heartland of America, into a city that means the end, and He spoke to me a name and county. So I came to the heartland, into the city that means the end, and I dwelt there. And the Lord said to me, I will make you invisible among the people. What do you see?

The Spirit That Strengthens All Things Feminine

 

Prior to the Destruction:The Spirit That Strengthens  All Things Feminine
Through Steven Crowder

“A spirit has arisen in your country, My son,—a  spirit that was put in place, according to My will, decades ago.  It is growing  in strength and influence, and no one shall be able to stop its progress, says  the Lord.  Those who attempt to do so shall proceed forth in vain—it will be as  futile as attempting to stop the rain from falling in Noah’s day.  This is the  great judgment upon your country, and no one will be able to stop it.  I will  cause it to run its course in your nation, and when things are in their proper  place, it is then I will cause the foretold catastrophic events to  take place that will crush this modern day harlot known as the United States of  America.”

“The spirit of the strong woman riding atop the  devil’s beast has been going forth and conquering with great subtlety and  deception for scores of years in your country, and the purpose in this is to  bring forth My desired results as a judgment upon your nation—My great judgment  that will lead to her fall, says the Lord.  Therefore, make your ear attentive  to My words that I shall speak to you here, and then go forth and warn those of  My people who will listen so that they will understand that it is the hand of  the Lord at work in this matter concerning your country.  You must warn them not to intervene in this matter with their prayers, for in this they can  only attempt to hinder My purposes, for these things shall come to pass,  and they must come to pass, for it is the judgment that I have chosen for  her [the United States of America] and set into motion years ago.”  

“I have shown other watchmen of Mine the  horrendous judgments that will come upon your nation, the stars falling from  heaven, and the mists and vapors that will fall upon her, leaving countless dead  in their wake.  What I am showing you here is what will occur just prior to and  leading up to these horrific events, for many have cried out to Me, ‘Lord, when  will these things come to pass, and what will be the sign of their coming?’  Have I not said that I will do nothing, unless first I reveal it to My  servants the prophets?”  [Amos 3:7]  

There are many of My watchmen scattered about,  warning My people that danger looms upon the horizon, but sadly, the great  majority of those who call themselves My people only listen to them in order to  placate their itching ears.  To put it more simply, their hearts can not truly  comprehend what the Lord is saying to His people, for so many have chosen  beforehand that they will only hear what they want to hear and then  discard the rest, lest it become bitter within them.  My son, when I told other  servants of Mine; those who would actually do all that I told them, to eat of  the book or to eat of the scroll, was it not sweet in their mouth, yet it made  their stomachs bitter?  And yet these blessed ones of Mine partook of this  bitter meal out of their obedience and out of their love and devotion to Me.  It  is this type of compliance that is pleasing to your Lord, and yet the great  majority of those who call themselves by My name have never learned to walk in  this type of obedience.  Instead, they have deceived themselves into thinking  that if something becomes bitter to them it must not be of Me—this is the lie  that they’ve chosen to believe in order to keep them from suffering!  And sadly  enough, this is the great lie that so very many have been given over to—so many  in fact, that if you saw it, your heart simply would not be able to endure it or  even to comprehend it!  This is how great the deception has become in these last  days, for sadly the great majority has chosen to deceive themselves into  believing only in part that which I have tried to show them, discarding the rest  as though it is of no use to them.  My pearls have truly been cast before them,  and yet they have foolishly trampled them underfoot!   I am not speaking of the  world here My son, but of those who call themselves My people!    Let it  be known that those who have chosen to follow this course will receive a much  greater judgment in the coming days than those who have willingly bore their  crosses and who have chosen to suffer rather than to only obey Me in the parts  that they have chosen.  Those who have chosen suffering rather than the fleeting  pleasures of this world are the ones who have produced their fruit in the great  furnace of affliction, and this fruit can never be taken away from  them—it has been stored where moth and rust can never touch it, and where the  thief can never take it away.  Soon, the wheat [those of Mine who have produced  true fruit of the Holy Spirit] shall be safely set aside into the barns of My  choosing—the safe places that I have reserved for them, while the tares [those  who resemble the wheat and grow in the same field, yet who did not bear the  fruit of the Holy Spirit] shall be bundled up together to be burned in a very  hot oven.  And it is in this oven that the last chances will be given to  them to produce fruit meet for repentance—the same fruit as the thief upon the  cross brought forth in his last hours upon the earth.  Although his life was  indeed over, yet he was spared an eternal punishment and was granted a place in  the eternal Kingdom and the Paradise of God.  This shall serve as an example for  the many who will be thrown into the great furnace of affliction in the days to  come.  Selah.”

“Do not be surprised or discouraged My son when  this message is only received in part by some who hear it.  There will be those  who will attempt to lift you up with great flatteries, and those who will  outright despise you for speaking as My mouthpiece, saying in their hearts, ‘Who  is he that he should speak the words of the Lord?’  There will be those who will  truly be blessed by this message, while others will be blessed only in part,  seeing that they’ve chosen to believe only the parts that they desire, while  forgetting the rest.  Do not let your heart be heavy or troubled by the  rejection that you will see, for they are not rejecting you, but they are  actually rejecting Me and casting aside My words, and I the Lord will  deal with them accordingly.  As for you My son, go forth into that which I have  allotted for you, and be careful to guard your heart from the snare of pride,  for in that which you have proven yourself faithful in, more shall be given.   And think not that My hand is not upon you anymore when there are periods of  peace and silence, for the Lord knows of your endurance and He will place you in  restful places as He sees fit.”

“The spirit of the strong woman riding atop the  devil’s beast has been at work in your country for decades now.  She is haughty  and proud, yet reserved and cunning.  The spirit of theatre has been upon her,  causing her to act out her part with great deception.  Although she smiles  widely in her heart while inflicting cruelty, she will not allow her facial  features or her body language to disclose this.  It takes great spiritual  discernment in order to see this, for its veil is very deceptive and very  convincing.  This is why I sent you to the stable, and why I kept you there for  many days.  What was it that you saw while you were there, My son?”

I said, “Lord, I saw a beautiful woman who  lived solely for the purpose of controlling the great beasts that she rode  upon.  This woman possessed exceptional strength and poise, and she was very  influential.  She received great adulation and many prizes for her mastery of  the horses she rode upon.  As I watched her, I began to discern many things in  my spirit, things that troubled me.”

And the Lord said to me, “What were these  things that you saw?”

I said, “Lord, there were many things out of  place in this woman’s life, as she truly lived to master her control over the  horses she owned.  Her marriage was one that was based out of convenience rather  than love, and I saw very little affection between her and her husband.  Rather  than seeing two lovers, I saw a man who was used for the talents he  possessed.  He was used to build things and to fix things in this woman’s quest  for more, more and yet still more.  And although she was married to this man  whose name means the rock, she refused to take his name, continuing to go by a  name that she was not even given by her own father.  This prideful thing caused  me to shake my head and to ponder why it was this way.  And sadly, Lord, I saw  that the union of this couple brought forth a child whom she’s orphaned due to  her dedication toward mastering the control of these great beasts that she sits  upon.  I was appalled to see that in her quest to master these horses, it was  really the beast itself that was controlling her.”

And the Lord said to me, “You have seen  correctly in this.  What is the name of the child that this woman has brought  forth?”

I said, “The boy’s name is Travis.”

And the Lord said to me, “What you have seen  here is very symbolic, and a foreshadow of what is happening in the spirit  realm.  The boy’s name means ‘Travesty.’  The woman goes by the name of  her own choosing, although she is married to a man named Rocky—the name that  means ‘the Rock.’  This is what has become of many of My people in your  country.  Pay close attention to Me as I explain this.”  

“Claiming to be married to and reserved for Me;  the great Rock of their salvation, many of My people have chosen to go their own  way, choosing to go by the names of their own choosing and bringing forth  children in a great travesty–children that eventually become orphaned, this  being due to their parents being controlled by the beast.   These children that  they bring forth are an easy prey for the enemy, seeing that they have  absolutely no influence from the one that bore them, and in many ways they’re  abandoned and must fend for themselves during their lifetime.”

And the Lord said to me, “What is it that you  have observed concerning the heart and the influence of this woman who sits upon  the beast?  I placed you for many months as a fly upon the wall so that you  could observe her and learn.  Tell me now, what is it that you have seen?”

I said, “Lord, I saw a great disdain that was  brought forth toward all men, although it was veiled with a smile and a type of  feminine pose that I was able to see through.  What I saw was actually more  masculine than it was feminine, and it was concealed by a front that was very  beguiling.  I saw a great disdain for men that poured forth from this woman, and  it affected all of the women around her and within her sphere of influence.  And  once in the spirit I actually saw this woman standing with other women of  like-spirit.  She was boasting and saying, ‘The actual purpose of men is to  serve us and to kiss our backsides.’  Lord, I feel badly saying this, but that’s  exactly what was shown.”

And the Lord said, “You have seen correctly in  this.”

I said, “Lord, this woman was rich, and she was  married to a man who was also rich, and through her wealth she was able to  control people with a cruelty that was also masked behind a beautiful smile.   While buying herself many expensive things, she stated that she simply could not  afford to pay her servants any more than the meager wages she offered them.  And  what shocked me the most is that I saw other women coming to her and paying her  to teach them how to be just like her!  And these women also had a great disdain  for men, saying in their hearts, ‘You may clean up after our animals, but you  can never be our friend.’  And it was common to hear them say things such  as, ‘Typical male reasoning,’ and ‘Typical male response,’ as their prideful  boasting poured out of their lips.  At this I wanted to become violent, but I  was restrained from doing so.  Lord, what does all of this mean?”

And the Lord said to me, “My son, I have placed  you within the confines of the stable in order to show you the heart of the  spirit that is sweeping your nation.  It is cruel and cunning, using the wiles  of a woman who has patiently waited for her chance to control things.  The beast  she is riding upon is none other than your adversary the devil, and although she  attempts to control him, it is actually he that is controlling her.  This is a  spirit, and it is going to run its course in your country, using its influence  to bring forth My desired results, and then her end will come  before the whole world.”

“I am raising up the spirit of the strong woman  in your country, and in her quest for power she will act very cruelly, although  her feminine wiles will cause her to appear beautiful.  She will have a great  disdain for men, and will treat them as mere servants to fulfill her needs,  although she will claim to be submissive.  This spirit is going to affect every  facet of your society, including politics, religion and especially the  entertainment industry.”

I said, “Lord, just how will this  affect our country, and how will it manifest itself?”

And the Lord answered my request and said, “In  the entertainment industry, women and men are going to change positions.  You  will more and more see women becoming the heroines, with the men serving them  and being made to look foolish.  You will more and more see women leading the  way as hunting and fishing guides and carpenters and supposed ‘experts’ in the  fields that men once dominated.  You will see more women in professional sports,  and women dominating the music industry.  Many of the songs that they will bring  to great popularity will speak in demeaning ways about men, and this will  influence many.  And; as is presently the case, the most popular music will be  about sex and love, as this theme will continue in its ever-seeking quest to  deceive people that sexual lust is to be equated with true love. Some of the  worst examples that you will see will come from the television, as beautiful  women will be used to seduce many, this being due to their physical  attractiveness and their talents in being able to act.  They will be like so  many beautiful puppets on the stage, spitting out lines that have been created  by those who are completely given over to doing evil—people called ‘screenwriters’ and ‘songwriters’ who abhor the Lord and desire to play out this  hatred by flaunting their well-conceived words and scenarios in front of all  people.  Increasingly, the good versus evil theme will be artfully projected as  woman versus man; with man being the evil character and this will seduce many  into siding with this way of thinking and acting.  When you hear them singing  the words, ‘I am woman, hear me roar,’ know that the time of the end is drawing  very near for your country, and that her judgment will soon come quickly and  without mercy.”

“You will see women rising in power and  influence within the world of religion, with an ever-increasing abundance of  them pastoring churches and teaching My Word from the pulpit.  Is it not written  in My Word by the apostle Paul that “I do not allow a woman to teach or  exercise authority over a man, but to remain silent”? [1 Timothy 2:12] And  was it the apostle Paul speaking, or was it the Lord?  Paul was merely a  messenger, a chosen vessel as it were, to speak My words.  There is nothing  wrong with a woman sharing with the brethren that which the Lord has given her,  but that is a completely different thing than it is for her to stand up in front  of all and teach!  In your country you are going to see more and more women  standing before all and teaching from My Word, and the people will love to have  it so, says the Lord.  For it is easy to teach from the well of knowledge, and  there shall be many brilliant ones that will stand up and boldly proclaim the  Word of God, all the while not knowing that they are only a small part of the  overall plan that the Lord has in order to bring this spirit of the rebellious  woman into its final place of power before the great hammer falls.  These women  will be greatly influential, speaking of the great things that your Lord has  done, but this will not be the type of preaching that comes from being  led by the Holy Spirit.  At best it will be earthly, speaking to the natural man  to come and get ‘saved’ by Jesus in order to prevent an eternity in hell.  And  this type of preaching will be very common in the days to come, and there will be those who will come forth in order to receive Me into their lives. But, there will be those who will go on from there and who will make Me  not only their Savior; but more importantly their Lord and Master,  and they will see the need to forsake man’s systems and they will gather only  unto Me and will not attach themselves to the systems of man any more.  These  will indeed be the blessed ones of My flock, says the Lord.”

“Within the world of religion, you are going to  see the powerful woman growing in strength and influence, and the feminine  things that reside in the area of the soul shall become more and more manifest.   There will be movements coming that will operate completely within the emotions,  with great deceptive fits of crying and wailing—and these will be called  manifestations of the Holy Spirit.  No more laughing and barking like dogs, but  weeping and wailing and crying—all in the name of the Lord.  It shall be said in  that day; and rightly so, that the time of great sorrows is soon to be upon us,  therefore the great bouts of weeping.  This too shall be a great deception, for  it shall be wailing from the soul and not out of conviction brought forth from  the Holy Spirit, and all the while the people will say, ‘We are weeping due to  the time of great sorrows—behold how the Lord will bottle our tears and pour  them back down upon us as a great blessing!’  I say to you that you will see  manifestations in that day that will absolutely stun you due to their completely  carnal nature, and yet the people will continue to say that it is the ‘sweet  anointing of the Holy Spirit upon them.’  This too will be the fruit that will  come forth from the emotions of men and women, due to the strength and influence  of the spirit that shall strengthen all things feminine.”

“It shall be not only women who will be  affected by this spirit, says the Lord, but men also who shall open up to it and  become affected.  The evidence of this will be in them bowing down to and  serving these strong women in an undue manner.  This manner shall go way past  that of normal servitude, as it shall be geared at lifting women up to a highly  elevated place, and submitting to them with great zeal.  Men who are affected by  this spirit will also become much more emotional, even to the point of acting  effeminate as part of their walk.  There will be men who are infected by this  spirit who will have great ministries that will become geared more and more  toward the ‘emotional’ side of things, and they too will become highly  influential in the days to come.  Sadly though, what they will equate with the  blessings of the Lord in that day will be no more than great emotional  outpourings that are a direct result of the leavening of this spirit.  It is  written in My Word ‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit says the  Lord of hosts.’ [Zechariah 4:6] and that which you shall see in that day  shall not be done by the power of My Spirit, but by the power of the  spirit that I shall allow to rise in power and that people shall be given over  to in that day, says the Lord.”

“In the political arena, you are going to see  women rising into more and higher positions of authority, says the Lord.  This  spirit that is at work in your country will empower them to boldly enter into  places that have in the past been dominated by men.  Ultimately, you will see a  woman attain to the highest office in the land, being swept into office by those  who are under the influence of this spirit.  As part of the political  campaigning, you will see evidence of this powerful spirit at work if you’re  looking for it—it will be very obvious to you in that day.  Whether this woman  will attain to the highest executive office in the land due to running as number  one or number two on the campaign ticket does not matter—she will attain  to the highest position at My appointed time, whether it be due to winning by  attrition or winning by election.  And, at that time, you shall see the great  many rejoicing in this so-called victory, not knowing all the while that it is  the Lord who has set their table before them and they shall eat a very bitter  harvest.  Of this new leader, it has been said decades before that she shall be ‘Well-dressed and beautiful, but cruel in heart.’  Her heart shall be as far  from  the Lord as north is from south, and she shall lead the country into its  final ruin.  Again, when you hear the words ‘I am woman, hear me roar,’ take  great heed, for the time of the end in your country is soon to be upon you, and  you will stand absolutely shocked at what you will see happening in the days to  come, says the Lord.

“When I cursed the woman in the Garden of Eden,  part of that curse was that her desire would be for the man’s position of  authority, for it is written, ‘your desire shall be for your husband, and he  shall rule over you.’  And so it is in your country My son, for women are  now heading into the final phase of the great takeover that has been ordained  years ago, and what the people shall call a great blessing shall in fact be a  great curse—a terrible judgment that will mark the end of the United States of  America—a country that had; years before, sold itself out to do evil.”

It is written in My Word that ‘a house  divided against itself can not stand,’ and in this case the house is  your country My son—the United States of America.  I have and I will cause the  men and women of this country to be divided against one another, and then her  end will come.  Do not pray against what your Lord has already ordained, but  warn the people of this coming judgment and tell them to get their hearts right  before the Lord, to hold on steadfastly to what is right, even though everything  around them may be going completely off course and contrary to the Lord’s will.   I am the Lord, and I will protect My own in that day.  Although they will walk  through the valley of death, they will not fear, for I will be with them.  There  will be great mourning in that day, for the slain of the Lord will be many, and  this will include friends and family as well as those who have persecuted you.   In that day, says the Lord, fear will be far from you, although you will lament  those who have fallen by the sword and by the multitude of pestilence about  you.  And in that day, says the Lord, you will know without a doubt that it was  by My hand that you stood, and that you are My people—and blessed will you be in  that day!  This is the word of the Lord.”

I received  this word in 2001–sometime between January and July.  The Lord was saying that  the saying “I am woman, hear me roar” would be one of the earmarks that would  become popular when this spirit really got going, succeeding in elevating a  woman to great political power.  The Spirit of God said that a woman would  ascend to the highest office in the land, and said that she would attain that  position either by election or attrition.  My thinking in this is that there  could possibly be a woman running on the ticket as the Vice-Presidential  candidate, only to become President at a later time.  It is said that this  woman; once she gets into office, will be the last President.  Interestingly  enough, I heard that song being sung as an advertisement for a network on TV  called “The Oxygen Network” recently–I was surprised to hear it.

Your Brother,
Steven Crowder

 

 

Three Judgments Prophesied to Come to America for her Sinfulness and Rebellion

Video song by Jason Bellard: REPENT

(For your discernment. As for me, I feel these coming judgments  prophesied by Steven Crowder, (below), are in the making, due to the organized churches complacency, worldliness,  and selfish disregard for God, combined with the sinfulness, unbelief and ungodliness of America.

America and the lukewarm mainstream apostate church have become like unto Sodom and Gomora. The sins of Sodom and Gomora were pride, idleness, fullness of bread, and they didn’t take care of the needy.)

Prophecy:

Brother Steven Crowder

Seeing Through The Eyes Of A Child

“On the 26th day of February in the year 2001, the Lord spoke to me and said, “Write down what I speak to you!The first of three judgments is soon to be upon this country.”

“For weeks I have been stirring your spirit and showing you things that you must tell My people.I’ve shown you My anger and my anguish over their deeds and their lives, and I’ve caused you to feel these very things in your own heart, have I not?”

And I said, “Yes, Lord.With all of my heart I know this.”

And the Lord said to me, “You must record what I’ve shown you and what I will show you, and you must share it amongst the people, even if it brings forth unbelief and dissention, and even persecution from those who call themselves your brethren”

And I said, “Lord, help me to bear this burden, for the weight of it is enormous.How great and how terrible this message is, and how will it be received?”

And the Lord said to me, “Do not concern yourself how it is received by those hearing it—only be faithful and deliver all of the words that I speak to you, and do not hold back anything I tell you—this is very important, and this you must do.”

“The first of three judgments is soon to be upon this country.With each judgment I will reveal people’s hearts and their motives, and although many will cry out to Me, few will actually repent and turn to me with all of their heart.Those who do repent will know in their hearts that it took judgment in order to bring them to repentance, this being due to the stubbornness of their hearts.”

“A strong blow will occur in the economic sector in this country, and it will cause a deterioration that will progress slowly but steadily, causing the abandonment of grandiose plans and ideas.Economic woes will pave the way to great sorrow and suffering, and as things escalate and grow worse, there will be those who will say, ‘Behold, the Great Depression has returned!What has become of our prosperity?’ Depression and sorrow are one and the same—behold, the time of sorrows that has come upon your nation.”

“I prospered the people of this country with great abundance, but what did they do with their wealth?They built monuments unto themselves, they grew fat and slothful, and they forgot the poor, and their trust increasingly grew upon their wealth, and they forgot about Me, says the Lord!They deceived themselves into thinking that it was their own righteousness that brought forth this wealth, not knowing that the seeds of their prosperity had long before been planted by their forefathers.Is it not true that first comes the planting of the seed, followed many years later by an abundance of fruit?In this people’s pride and arrogance, they have deceived themselves, and in a short time I shall strike them and take away their sustenance and all they have come to trust in, for I am the Lord, and vengeance is Mine!And when the infrastructure of this country begins to crumble, violence and turmoil will become the norm, and after a time the people will become used to it and will accept the latest strategies that will be implemented in order to try to heal this incurable affliction.”

“There are those who built great ministries and flaunted their wealth before the eyes of many, misrepresenting Christ, while at the same time claiming to be His ministers.A grand hypocrisy this is, living in such luxury as rivals the greatest kings who have ever lived, says the Lord.And O how My people love to have it so!When the economic abundance that the people have become so accustomed to begins to fade, and the propagators of such “prosperity faith” continue their efforts to milk the flock of their dwindling riches, see then how successful their “faith” messages will be.Will the people send in their money on that day to extend the life of luxury that these deceitful hirelings require?I say to you that there will be a small percentage of those whose eyes will have been opened concerning these tricks, and they will say, ‘How foolish we were to believe these tales told by those who say they represent the Lord!Forgive us for our mistakes and heal our deception O God!’And the Lord will hear their cries in that day, and He will heal them.But, the majority; the many, will continue to put their trust in these heresies, believing that God will pay them back many fold for all that they “donate” to His cause.I say to you that such giving does not emanate from a pure heart, but is done due to selfish motives.When one gives out of love, nothing is expected in return, but see how these people charge Me to return their money many times over?If your riches are your security instead of the Lord, then they have become a snare and an idol to you.Woe be unto you!Woe be unto you!”

“Your elected officials shall scramble to fix the problems in that day, yet they will only be so many fingers in a dam which is breaking, and no amount of programs will be able to mend what’s happening.The nation whose currency says, ‘In God We Trust’ has forgotten the Lord, and the majority of its officials have become corrupted!Many of your leaders use the name of the Lord as a tool, while they secretly engage in sinful, demonic behavior, thinking that the Lord does not see.But, the Lord does see, and He does not honor those who do not honor Him, nor will He honor their programs that they will attempt to implement to no avail.No government can stand when it is divided against itself, and no one can renew the blessings of God when they’re standing arm-in-arm with the devil.”

I said, “Lord, how can we as a people be so blind, and what has become of us?How can we be spared from eternal judgment?”

And the Lord said, “People do not get corrupted in a day, but through subtle deception their eyes become clouded so that they can not see and discern between good and evil.If they are not shown the error of their ways so that they can repent of this evil, then they will die in it and then have to give account for their actions on the day of accountability when they stand before Me.”

And I said, “Lord, how did this happen?”

And the Lord said, “Much of the damage has occurred through the idol you call television.At first it was innocent, with shows that promoted morals and family values, but like everything else that man can touch, it became corrupted by man’s desires, and in time it became the holding place of every foul spirit.What used to be entertainment withcowboys and horses paved the way for policemen and violence, and with each passing season the savagery grew worse, until the people became shock-proofed and addicted to this sort of blood and violence.And then it became the norm for people to see men; who were created in the image of God, cursing and killing other men—all in the name of ‘entertainment.’And as people grew more accustomed to this type of perversion, they merely passed it off as being normal—the average, routine entertainment of the day—not realizing at all what it was doing to them.This is to be compared to a rebellious child who pushes the limit of what he can get away with, until at last the outrageous becomes the acceptable—this is how the people of this country became so corrupted, until at last they call evil good and they have lost the ability to discern good from evil.It was mainly through the entertainment industry that this door was opened, allowing all of this demonic intrusion into the lives and hearts of the people.Music and television both became so corrupted that they destroyed the moral fiber of the youth, and in time those children grew up and became the adults of the next generation—a generation empty of understanding and void of moral direction—a preoccupied generation that had lost the ability to know right from wrong.And if this wasn’t enough, then came the computer, where everything can be found, although none of it is real.As if this country wasn’t already shock-proofed, easy access to computers paved the way to even greater perversions—all in the name of man’s progress.From cursing to murder to lewd acts and perversions, televisions and computers opened the door to the demonic and caused people to adulterate themselves through what they saw—all in the form of ‘entertainment.’Children need to be entertained, and it was through the door of their ‘entertainment’ that the people of this nation were adulterated with the iniquities of the world.Children—perpetual children—children who refuse to grow up and take responsibility—this is what has become of the people of this country.”

“When My judgments come, says the Lord, who will shake themselves loose from the great deception that has covered this country like a death shroud—who is it that will repent?

As I pondered this, the Lord spoke to me again, speaking of a second judgment.He said to me, “After their riches become as dust, I shall bring forth a famine so as to make their food scarce and their delicacies no more.”

And I said, “Lord, how will this affect the country, and who will be spared this judgment?”

The Lord said, “Many have lived their lives never knowing what it is to be hungry.Many have forgotten the poor and the destitute and the hungry, choosing to turn their heads away from such ones as these, and to shut out that part of the world from their eyes.In their pride, they considered themselves better than the others because of their prosperity and their lack of want.You will see how depraved these people will become when they will consider it a blessing to receive a mere one meal a day!Where will their pride be then?”

“As the economic woes worsen, great turmoil will occur overseas, and your country will be pulled into a frightening war.Because it is a fact that ‘war’ helps to revive the economy, there will be many who will rejoice because of this, saying, ‘Behold, our prosperity is soon to return!—it is worth the sacrifice of these young men and women.’But this war will be a great trap, and many men and women will leave the homeland, never to return, as the jaws of this trap will clamp down upon them without mercy.Your country has become very proud of its great technologies, and the people of your country entertained themselves by watching their televisions, viewing the wholesale slaughter meted out in your last war.Unbeknownst to you, these ‘smart weapons’ will not be so effective this time around, and when your troops walk confidently into battle they will not be prepared for what they will encounter.The tactics of the last war have deceived your people into a false sense of security, and it will be to your horror when a seemingly weaker enemy unleashes the terror that they are holding in store for your young men and women when they enter into the prepared battle grounds.”

“Although everyone will be affected by the lack of abundant food, there will be those who will have an adequate supply, those who have been wise and who have heard the voice of the Lord and who have actually done something with what He has spoken to them.These people will be blessed in that day, and their wise planning they will become a lifeline for many people to avoid starvation.These pockets of people will be few, and they will be scattered in many places, says the Lord.It will be by My assistance that these people will be blessed, and they will take no credit unto themselves for their blessings.”

“The government will attempt to remedy the problem of feeding the masses of hungry people, and their food distribution programs will at times become violent, plagued by people who know of no other way than to break in and steal that which they desire.This will pave the way for very strict regulations and the marking of people within a godless system.Although this country has always had an abundance of food and grain to send to other countries, it will be hard-pressed to feed its own people in that soon-coming day, and the famine will only grow worse and worse, with natural disasters leading to the destruction of much-hoped-for food.A once-proud nation will be brought to its knees, and people’s health will decline to proportions unheard of for this country.Many will lose hope, and few will repent and return to Me, says the Lord.”

“There will still be ministries that will attempt to pilfer the people in that day, offering promises to them and misleading many with false signs and wonders.And there will be so many in that day who will cry long and loud to be raptured out of the world and into the Paradise of God, but to no avail.It will be said to their leaders in that day, ‘How long must we suffer this affliction?’ and ‘Children of the King shouldn’t suffer like this, should they?’And many will fall away from the faith in that day, abandoning all hope and the possibility of being removed from their suffering.And I will have mercy on My people in that day, says the Lord, upon those who will face reality and who will come to Me with their broken hearts.And they shall know in that day that I am the Lord who loves them, and that they’ve been tricked and deceived by those who fashion themselves in religious garb, yet who are not truly the Lord’s shepherds.This is the second judgment that I shall pour out upon this country”

And as I sat and pondered this, the Lord brought my attention to a group of people who were standing around and talking amongst themselves.The Lord said to me, “Behold how they talk and how this sort of speech does not sit right within your spirit.”

And I said, “Lord, why is this so, and what does it mean?”

And the Lord said, “They speak as though they were babes and little children, not knowing that from the abundance of their hearts their mouths speak.They speak as babes and children because within their hearts this is who and what they really are—a generation that has refused to grow up, a generation that has deceived themselves and in turn I have deceived them.Education and wealth have no affect on peoples’ maturity, and yet they have been deceived into thinking that this is the case.People think that because a person has this much education or because they own great possessions, or because they have great charm or a golden tongue that they are somehow above others.Men see the outside and judge accordingly, but the Lord looks upon the heart.”

At these words my heart sank within me, and I wanted to turn and weep for these people.I could not speak, nor could I eat, for my heart was so heavy within me.I began to melt like wax and my strength left me.For hours I walked around in a daze, and I felt as though I had just seen all of those around me slain in an unknown way.And as I pondered this, the Lord began to speak to me again.

“Children—perpetual children, this is how I refer to this generation.They see through the eyes of a child, for this is what they wanted, and this is what I gave them over to.A child’s reality is seeing things the way they want to see them.They pretend into reality the things they wish to see, like a Christian walk without the cross and the suffering that is necessary for spiritual growth.They refuse to see the truth, for they’ve blinded themselves through their rebellion, says the Lord.Although they see reality and have heard the truth of the gospel, they choose rather; like little children, to believe something else—purposely deceiving themselves rather than having to face reality.Seeing, followed by believing, which means putting into action what they’ve seen, would prove that they are at least attempting to mature, and it is this type of religion that is pleasing to your heavenly Father.[James 1:21ff, Matthew 7:24-27]Have I not said in My Word that to those who choose to love a lie over the truth that I will give them over to believing these lies?That I will even send a deluding influence upon them so that they will believe that which is false and be judged accordingly?[2 Thessalonians 2:10,11]Do they not take the Lord at His word and believe it?”

When I heard this, I was deeply disturbed and troubled at the thought of this.“Lord, this is your wrath, and it is an awful thing to see!I always thought that the wrath of God was fire and brimstone and cataclysmic judgment, but now I see Your wrath in a much different way!I see your judgment upon people happening right now, and we don’t even see it!How do I warn them of this?”

And the Lord said to me, “You must show them all that I’ve spoken to you here, and despite whether they pay heed to you or not, you must tell them, for your Lord is merciful and full of compassion and I desire to heal their iniquity and their backsliding.I am a just and true God, and I will render unto each person accordingly.Judgment is coming upon your nation, and it is not My will that any man should perish, therefore I send My watchmen to those who call themselves My people.I send My watchmen forth with a message from the throne of the Most High God in hopes that there will be those who will listen and take to heed concerning the blindness that they’ve been given over to.It is My desire to heal them and forgive them so that I can save them.Do you not know that the Lord loves these people and that He grieves over them with great anguish?”

And I shook my head and said, “I do not understand that kind of love, Lord—it is too great for me.Forgive my shallowness and lack of understanding, please.Forgive my hardness of heart toward those who are perishing O God, and give me Your compassion, that I may speak to them from my heart and not just out of obedience”

And the Lord said, “My ways are not man’s ways.My ways are higher than man’s ways, therefore you must tell the people all that I have spoken to you, because it is for their benefit.Tell them that I love them and do not desire to lose them when I bring My judgment down upon your country.Tell them that I desire to show them the error of their ways so that they might repent and I would in turn heal them of their sins and their backsliding.Tell them that I desire to save them and to be with them in the Paradise of God, for they are My creation, made in My own image, and I My desire is that none of them would be lost.Tell them all that I have spoken to you, for this is the word of the Lord!”

“When the first two judgments come upon your country, they will drive many to their knees.There will be those who will indeed repent, but the vast majority will harden their hearts toward Me and many will curse Me in that day.And in their weakened state I shall bring forth terrors upon them such as they have never known before!This shall be the third judgment upon your country.”

“And what will this judgment be, Lord?” I asked.

“I have shown pieces of this judgment to many people over the years, the signs of terror that will come upon America at the time of her end.Mists, vapors, powders and stars falling from the heavens upon her cities, pestilence and foreign troops and terror of every conceivable fashion shall come upon her when the third wave of judgment passes over her.Imprisonment andmartyrdom shall be the norm in that day, and many will flee for their lives in order to escape the terrors that await the living.The great cataclysmic judgments that men have seen and written about shall all descend upon her during her final days, and the government will be powerless to do anything to stop them, says the Lord.The economy will no longer be an issue in that day, as there will be nothing left to buy and sell, and America as a nation will be in ruins, never to rise up again.Her soldiers will have been spread out in every direction upon the globe, tending to the various duties abroad, and they will never see their homeland again.So sobering will things be at that time that no one will be preaching the gospel for money, and those who would attempt to do so will be captured and killed.And for this reason, many will abandon Me in that day, denying Me before men in their attempt to merely live one more day.And the word ‘Rapture’ will be forgotten in that day, and the people will know that they’ve been taught wrongly concerning this doctrine.”

“But, I will have a people, says the Lord—a people who will walk through this coming fire, a people who will miraculously survive, despite all of the odds which will be stacked up against them.This will be due to My divine protection upon them, the sealing of these servants by My angels as is written in My Word.”[Revelation 7, Ezekiel 9]

“Have I not shown Myself to be faithful in protecting My people in days past? says the Lord.Have you not read in My Word how I spared Daniel in the lion’s den, how I kept the three young men in the furnace of fire, how I kept My people when I struck their oppressors?And do you still not believe that I will spare My people even when judgments are falling all around them?”

“Ten times did I strike the oppressors of My people, declares the Lord, and each time that judgment fell upon them, My people were kept safe from harm.Ten times did I strike them—with boils and with blood and darkness, with hail and locusts and frogs and swarms of insects, and I struck their cattle and their firstborn.And did I not spare My own in that day?When the judgments fell upon the Egyptians, were not My own people exempt? says the Lord.And when I parted the Red Sea and made safe passage for My people, what did the oppressors of My people do?They sought to destroy My people, using the same miraculous passage that I had provided for them.And did I not destroy them all because of this? says the Lord.And so shall it be now, as you will see many who are soon to be plagued, and few who will be spared.And let it be known beforehand that there will be a definite distinction between those whom the Lord spares and those who He does not spare, for the Lord knows those who are truly His and He will make it well-known before men in that day.Many are called, and yet few are chosen, and is it not written that at the time of the end that the love of the many shall grow cold? [Matthew 24:12]Therefore, know beforehand that he Lord will make a definite distinction, which will be visible to all in that day concerning those who are truly His people and those who are not.It is when the many seek to pillage and destroy those whom I have protected so that they might live—when they seek to devour that which I have spared, then you shall see Mine hand strike without mercy, and many shall be the slain in that day.”

“And just who are the oppressors of My people? you would ask.Are they not children[Isaiah 3:12]—those who refuse to grow up and face the responsibility of maturing and growing up? says the Lord.

“Tell the people of this coming terror” the Lord said to me.“Tell them that I love them and I am heartbroken over the things I see being committed in My name.Tell them that if they desire to remain as children and to deceive themselves into believing only what they want to believe, then I have no other option but to give them over to these lies, and that it will cost them everything! says the Lord.Tell them that if they continue to see as through the eyes of a child that they will never mature into that which I would desire of them, and that in the end I will indeed label them as children—children of disobedience, whom I take no pleasure in.”

“The United States of America has become a nation of children, a nation that thrives upon watching boys grow up to play boys’ games—giving great honor, prestige and riches to those who refuse to grow up, to those who choose youth over wisdom and maturity.And so much time and money and effort is put into the vanity of looking young and not having to face the reality of growing old!It is time to put away your vanity, My people—it is time to humble yourselves and to be done with it. It is time to grow up My people!Do you think that I will warn you of this many more times before it’s too late to escape the coming terror upon your country?This is the word of the Lord!”

There are those who have asked me, “When do you think that this economic crisis is going to begin?”All I can tell them what the Lord told me concerning this.In June of 2000 the Lord spoke to me and said, “On the sixth day of the sixth month of the new millennium, the evil powers in charge have an evil plan devised.”The Lord did not tell me what this evil plan was, nor what it pertained to, but it seemed to point to a judgment upon the American economy.

He also told me that we’re to watch the country’s reaction to the execution of Timothy McVeigh—especially the reaction in Oklahoma City where the bombing took place.He is scheduled to die in May of 2001, and if the people rejoice over his death I feel that this will be a sign that our nation is about to fall under the judgment of God.I cannot with surety say “thus saith the Lord” concerning that, but I have a very strong feeling about it.I was led to move to Oklahoma three weeks before the bombing occurred, and below you will read what the Lord showed me concerning the bombing and the court’s verdict upon Mr. McVeigh.I felt that the Lord was telling me recently that because people in this country have refused His meat and chose instead to live on milk, that He will one day not far hence bring a plague upon our livestock, taking away the abundance of meat and milk that we’ve become so used to—and this will have a devastating affect upon our economy.

I know that there have been many “date setters” that have come up short on their “predictions,” and it’s not my desire to be one of them.Predictions come from men, whereas prophecy comes from the Lord.If these words are truly of the Lord, then they will come to pass, and if they are only vain imaginings from my carnal mind, then they will not come to pass.I ask each of you be the judge of this.Please read about what the Lord says concerning the Oklahoma City bombing and how it affects us as a nation.

The bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995 made national headlines for weeks.Anyone who turned on the TV during that time saw the continual news reports on the bombing.Across the screen would flash the central theme, “Terror in the Heartland.”The Lord told me to watch what happened after this was all over, for a sign would be shown that would expose the heart of something concerning the whole nation.After a period of time, the bombing became old news, and then there was the trial which was held in Denver.When the verdict was about to be read, the Lord reminded me again to pay attention, for it would be a sign that would show the heart of something concerning the whole country.I asked the Lord, “What do I do?”and He replied that I needed to buy a newspaper and that I would find the answer in it.As you well know, the jury found Mr. McVeigh guilty, and sentenced him to die by lethal injection.The day after the death penalty was handed down, the answer came.In Oklahoma City, the people rejoiced over the sentence, and the newspaper stated that “The churches were ringing their bells every half hour, rejoicing.”The churches in the heartland were rejoicing when they saw their enemy judged, and in doing so they set themselves up to receive their own judgment at the hand of the Lord.”

The Word of God says:

“Rejoice not when your enemy falls, and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles or is overthrown; lest the Lord see it, and it be evil in His eyes and displease Him, and He turn away His wrath from him [to expend it upon you, the worse offender].” PROVERBS 24:17,18 Amplified Version

Warning~ Message to Babylon America

Message to the Heartland~

Prophesied by Steven Crowder

In his own words, Steven Crowder… said the LORD gave him this vision/prophetic word in 1994.

Warning Message To Babylon-America

A powerful prophecy received by Steven Crowder in the heartland of America in 1998, regarding the dark future of America if the people do not repent (including Christians), much of which is coming true in this hour.

From The Heartland Of America

Steven Crowder

In the autumn of 1994, the Lord spoke audibly to me, and He told me to go into the heartland of America, into a city that means the end, and He spoke to me a name and county. So I came to the heartland, into the city that means the end, and I dwelt there. And the Lord said to me, I will make you invisible among the people. What do you see?

A door opened, and I entered in. And I saw the poor from all different races of people, both men and women. And I saw them laboring under the harsh rule of their taskmasters. And they were driven as fast as they could go, under harsh conditions, and for little pay. And as I pondered this, another door opened. Inside this place were the leaders, saying,

Welcome let us teach you about our kingdom. And they boasted in their accomplishments, even giving large figures concerning their income. And one of them said, This year our projected sales will top eighty million dollars! We are on the rise, with much more prosperity to come. And I looked back and saw the poor, and my heart was puzzled. On one side I saw great wealth and boasting, and on the other side I saw hard labor and low pay, and the two did not match up. I asked the Lord about this, and He said, Slave labor, except this time its legal under their law. The nature of man changes only by the hand of the Lord. The rich still lord it over the poor. And then the door closed behind me.

Another door was opened for me, and I entered in. And I saw the helpless, and those stricken with all forms of diseases of body and of mind hopelessly stricken and helpless. And I saw them oppressed and tormented by those who for pay took care of them. Although they were there to help these pitiful ones, many of them were concerned about other matters, and they spoke to these poor ones worse than they would speak to dogs. And I said to myself, Where is mercy? There were dark spirits all around, and various ones were afflicted and made ill by them. I beheld a young girl, and a demon stared through her eyes. When it saw someone watching it, immediately it went more deeply into the girl so as not to be detected. Gossip, slander and drunkenness were thick, and many who hated the Lord were given authority there. The Lord’s name was mentioned often, but only by those who held to a form of godliness, although they had denied its power. When one of the Lords watchmen came, they cried, Foul! Crazy! A violent man! Better to hear diviners who call themselves prophets.

And I told the people that the spirit of Elijah was at work, calling men to repentance and to a proper relationship with God. And that after Elijah would come Elisha with a double portion and fullness of the Spirit of God. And the Lord said to me, Behold the number I will show you. And I looked and I saw the number 144,144. And I spoke to the people and told them to hearken and to prepare their hearts, for in the days of Elisha the two bears would again be called down as a curse ”these being the bear of Wall Street and the great Russian bear. And behold, the bull will run while the bulls are champions. And when the Jordan is finally removed, the bear will devour that which the bull has taken, for the Jordan is a necessity if one is to succeed the Jordan and the cross are the necessary provisions for one to enter into the Promised Land.

And I looked and beheld a vision. I saw the Red Sea parted, and God’s people passing through on dry land. And I saw an army of angry men on horseback coming behind them with murder in their eyes. And I said to myself, Surely they will die, those who attempt to destroy Gods people. And the Lord said, Behold, just as I did to Pharaoh have I done to the leaders their hearts are hardened and your labors shall be increased. Behold, the sealing of God’s true servants has begun.

And I heard the thundering voice of the Lord, and with trembling hands I wrote down that which He spoke to me. And He said, Woe be to you all you enemies of the cross! To all ye who say, We do not want this man to rule over us, woe be to you! Woe be to you who merely take My name to cover your sins, yet who refuse My cross, My bread, My robes of righteousness yes, even Me, says the Lord! Woe be to you who embrace covetousness and refuse correction who turn My house into a social order and not a house of worship.

Woe to you who have drawn My watchmen near to merely tickle your ears! When the strong messages come, instead of contrition, you embrace murder to protect your idolatrous hearts. And how you murder My servants though they come to you in love and in a spirit of hope. Instead of repentance, you have opted for murder you sons of Cain! My wrath is even now being kindled against you, you who take My name and bring reproach upon yourselves in sight of all and for all to see.

And behold, here is your judgment, even now because you have chosen to make My house a social order and not a house of worship and prayer, and because you have chosen to shout and not bow down before Me “behold, your prophets shall hear a mixed word, for none draws close enough to hear with clarity My still, small voice amid the din and uproar of your congregation. It is true that the gifts are without repentance, but a leavened, mixed word does not bring the life you think it does; it only leads to lukewarmness and that I shall not tolerate. A contrite heart and a broken spirit I shall not despise, but shouting, lukewarmness and pride I shall reject, says the Lord!

Behold, the day is coming when you shall look, and behold, the righteous man shall not be found among you, and only partial words mixed with vain imaginings from your lukewarm prophets shall be heard; words that do not bring life.

Woe to you who are at ease in Zion! Woe be to those who say, Rapture! Rapture! and refuse to pay the price of bearing their cross you who refuse to lift a finger, yet lay heavy loads for others to bear. The spirit of the Pharisee is upon you, and you likewise will perish if you do not repent! Woe to you who have assumed charge of My household, yet who beat My messengers who come to you for your correction. Do you not know that I will come upon you in an hour you know not of, and will cut you to pieces and assign you a place with the unbelievers as your reward? Peace and safety, you shout, and in so doing deceive yourselves from any preparation.

Woe to you who seek the deeper things, and embrace Jezebel and not Me, says the Lord! My paths will lead you to the cross. The true treasures of the Living Word lie through and beyond Jordan, that place of death to self. Jezebel will lead you to circumvent the cross and not go through it. Have I not said that I am the door to the sheepfold, and all who enter in must enter in through Me? And anyone who does not enter in through Me is a thief and a robber? There is no other way whereby you can partake of the true heavenly treasures but through Me and through the cross of death; wherein you will indeed find life. Pray that you will understand this! But woe to you who have twisted the cross and made it a dainty thing, for it is not a dainty thing, but an instrument of death! In the very spirit of Rome, you have carelessly romanticized the cross and taken away its use. Woe be to you!

My people, it is not My desire that any man should perish, and therefore I have made provisions for you, but you must accept the path that I have chosen. My paths lead to life, but that life only comes through death. When you let the cross do its work in your life, you shall then know the power and the life that is hidden from the proud. Won’t you hear My voice? Draw near to Me and I shall draw near to you. Look therefore to Me, and not to any man. Draw near to Me and hear My still, small voice. Behold, the day is coming when the proud shall be swept away, therefore humble yourself before Me, and in My time I will exalt you, says the Lord.

Another prophecy by Steve Crowder.  This one was apparently given to him in 1997.

Dare To Defy Her“Come Out Of Her, My People!”

—–

I moved to southeastern Washington and lived near the Snake River for six years. During that time, I sat by banks of the river and recorded what the Lord showed me. After the sixth year, I was blessed with a heavenly visitation, followed by a very difficult series of events that led to the writing of this prophecy. The hand of the Lord was very much upon me at this time, and it was during this period of strong anointing that I spent the next eighty days experiencing what you’re about to read, followed by writing down what I’d been shown. It is my great hope that this message will be a blessing to those who still have an open ear to hear what the Spirit of God is saying to His people.

Your Brother,—Steven Crowder

—–

On the eleventh day of the eleventh month in the year 2001, the Lord sent me to a destination in Washington state, twenty-two hundred miles distance, and He said, “There is an eight by forty home awaiting you at the end of this journey. Reside there, near the Snake River, close to Hell’s Gate, on the way to Hell’s Canyon, and wait patiently for Me at this place until I show you what you’ve been sent there to see.”

And so I dwelt there for many days, and I was thrust into the Refiner’s fire until I cried out with all that was within me for deliverance, and through Him I was able to overcome these things, not by my strength, but through His Spirit that strengthened me.

And the wife of my youth was there with me to help me through this difficult trial.

And the Lord said, “I have delivered you and strengthened you to overcome these generational curses, and I have caused you to be sick at even the thought of these things. From this day forth, remember that I have a work for you, so be careful not to defile yourself in any way.”

And I was grateful for this, and greatly humbled. And I heard a song being played over and over again, and the word were: “I’m here waiting in the wings.”

And then the Lord said, “I am also bringing your brothers and sisters through My refining fires at this time, so that they can become overcomers, and this is the reason that they’ve been made to endure these difficult times, because My true vessels are vessels of honor, says the Lord.

These are vessels formed by My hand and passed through the fires of My choosing. Those who endure My fires shall be made into vessels capable of holding the new wine, and all others shall not be fit to hold that precious anointing that I shall pour out liberally and without measure.

Behold, it shall be a new thing, says the Lord! And all who see shall be amazed, and all who call themselves by My name in that day; yet who have not been purified, they shall seethe inwardly, although their masks shall speak otherwise.”

In the early morning hours of my forty-eighth birthday, I was taken into the heavenly realms, and it was so overwhelming that my heart was barely able to contain the joy! Within the weeks that followed, a series of events occurred that baffled me, and at times they overwhelmed me.

This gave way to anger and then to overwhelming grief, and afterward, the veil was removed and my eyes were opened to what was occurring in the spirit realm concerning these matters.

And then the Lord spoke to me and said, “It was eleven years ago when My Spirit fell upon you, and with trembling hands you recorded the message entitled, ‘Woe be unto you all you enemies of the cross!’

Now, behold, and write down what I will show you, for this is what becomes of and what will become of these enemies of the cross, these conquerors who call themselves by My name, yet who have continually practiced non-payment.”

And I said, “Lord, what do you mean when you say ‘non-payment’?”

And the Lord said, “Non-payment! Behold what will become of these conquerors. Show them what I spoke through your pen eleven years ago, and then show them what will become of them if they do not repent and change, if they do not separate themselves, if they do not come up higher into that place that has no leaven.”

And I said, “Yes, Lord.”

—–

This is the word of the Lord given eleven years ago. February 1997

“Woe be unto you all you enemies of the cross! To all ye who say, ‘We do not want this man to rule over us,’ woe be unto you! Woe be to you who merely take My name to cover your sins, yet who refuse My cross, My bread, My robes of righteousness—yes, even Me, says the Lord! Woe be unto you who embrace covetousness and refuse correction—who turn My house into a social order and not a house of worship.”

“Woe be unto you who have drawn My watchmen near to merely tickle your ears! When the strong messages come, instead of contrition, you embrace murder to protect your idolatrous hearts! And how you murder My servants—though they come to you in love and in a spirit of hope. Instead of repentance, you have opted for murder you sons of Cain! My wrath is even now being kindled against you—you who take My name and bring reproach upon yourselves in sight of all and for all to see.”

“And behold, here is your judgment, even now [in 1997]—because you have chosen to make My house a social order and not a house of worship and prayer, and because you have chosen to shout and not bow down before Me—behold, your prophets shall hear a mixed word, for none draws close enough to hear with clarity My still, small voice amid the din and the uproar of your congregations. It is true that the gifts are without repentance, but a leavened, mixed word does not bring the life that you think it does; it only leads to lukewarmness—and that I shall not tolerate. A contrite heart and a broken spirit I shall not despise, but shouting, lukewarmness and pride I shall reject, says the Lord !”

“Behold, the day is coming when you shall look, and behold, the righteous man shall not be found among you, and only partial words mixed with vain imaginings from your lukewarm prophets shall be heard—words that do not bring life.”

“Woe be unto you who are at ease in Zion! Woe be to those who say, ‘Rapture! Rapture!’ and refuse to pay the price of bearing their cross—you who refuse to lift a finger, yet lay heavy loads for others to bear. The spirit of the Pharisee is upon you, and you likewise will perish if you do not repent! Woe to you who have assumed charge of My household, yet who beat My messengers who come to you for your correction. Do you not know that I will come upon you in an hour that you are not aware of, and I will cut you to pieces and assign you a place with the unbelievers as your reward? ‘Peace and safety,’ you shout, and in so doing, you deceive yourselves from any preparation!”

“Woe be unto you who seek the deeper things, and embrace Jezebel and not Me, says the Lord! My paths will lead you to the cross. The true treasures of the Living Word lie through and beyond the Jordan, that place of death to self. Jezebel will lead you to circumvent the cross and not go through it! Have I not said that I am the door to the sheepfold, and all who enter in must enter in through Me? (John 10:9) In fact, there is no other way that you can partake of the true heavenly treasures but through Me and through the cross of death; wherein you will indeed find life. Pray that you will understand this! But woe be unto you who have twisted the cross and made it a dainty thing, for it is not a dainty thing, but it is an instrument of death! In the very spirit of Rome, you have carelessly romanticized the cross and taken away its use!

Woe be unto you!”

“O’ My people, it is not My desire that any man should perish, and therefore I have made provisions for you, but you must accept the paths that I have chosen for you to walk upon! My paths lead to life, but that life only comes through death. When you let the cross do its work in your life, then you shall then know the power and the life that is hidden from the proud. Won’t you hear My voice? Draw near to Me and I shall draw near to you. Look therefore to Me, and not to any man. Draw near to Me and hear My still, small voice. Behold, the day is coming when the proud shall be swept away, therefore humble yourself before Me, and in My time I will exalt you, says the Lord.”

The Lord further counseled me and said that the distorted cross that man has created [as a replacement for the true cross] that this is an evil thing in His eyes, and that to twist the cross and to take away its intended use is to deny its power, and that this is one: an abomination and two: a judgment to anyone who refuses to repent of this.
