The Approaching Storm
It would be good to take a look at what is happening right now in the earth, and what appears to be lining up. I will present to you a few things to pray about and look to the Lord about concerning this timeline.
Over the years we have been shown a number of events that will come to pass during this period of time that we have entered into. What we have not known is exactly at what point all of these “end-time” events will unfold. We do know, however, that they are going to unfold in conjunction with the manifesting of the sons of God. In many ways they go hand-in-hand and they are tied into the judgments that are coming forth, and will come forth, concerning the realm of spirit that has been so set against the Father’s plan. And that plan concerns the release of the manifested sons of God.
I know that some of the events that we see unfolding have a timeline anywhere from the next 60 days upwards to the next ten or twelve months. Like a puzzle, the Father’s plan will seamlessly fit together, even if the details are still vague.
We have seen America going to war, and with the present rhetoric, that is not too hard to imagine. We have seen naval ships, as they leave anchor in the Hawaiian Islands, going out to battle. We have seen this coming for some time.
We have seen the deployment of massive amounts of troops in California, itself. Whether a defense mechanism or whether that has to do with civil unrest, I am not exactly sure.
For some time now we have seen, and have known, that America, as well as the world, is on a headlong collision course with an economic upheaval on a scale that we have never witnessed in our lifetime.
A number of times the Lord has cautioned what was coming for the U.S. dollar. We are going to hit a point where the dollar will not be worth the paper that it is printed on. The dollar, and specifically our banking system, as you may know, is part of what is called a “fiat system”. When banks were first created, they were a part of a monetary system based on gold and silver. There was a commonality of financial exchange within countries that was based on the exchange of gold. Later, gold was held in vaults, and certificates were issued representing the gold held in storage. This was the method of currency exchange, hundreds of years ago.
However, what has evolved in the last hundred years, since World War I, has been a banking system and a federal reserve built upon a policy of just printing money with no gold or no silver backing behind it. All of the governments of this world are based upon this system of fiat money, where no real gold or value is behind the currency issued.
There are no currencies in this world presently that are backed by anything except the law that was passed stating that these printed dollars must be acknowledged and utilized in merchant trade. In short; our financial system is based on nothing. There is nothing behind it except the law that requires the holder of the note to acknowledge it as legal tender.
We are quickly facing a point where all of this is going to implode, without question. I have seen where the time is coming that people will wallpaper the walls with money, because it will be absolutely useless. It is quickly coming, and if you follow current events, you can see the writing on the wall. The governments and financial institutions of this age have been putting band-aides on the system for so long, barely holding it up, and it is only going to hold so long before it completely unravels. We are at that point. We are at the point where the system, as we have known it, is going to unravel.
“And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.
And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.” Daniel 2:40-45
What is coming has been foretold in the book of Daniel. The last image, described in Daniel 2, will be destroyed by the stone cut out of the mountain. We will cover this further, in just a minute.
We are in a very precarious timeline for the earth. We have seen major geophysical events on the horizon. In recent appearings, over the last couple of months, it was conveyed that the earthquakes that are going to be hitting the West Coast and the MidWest, are coming fairly soon. You can say, “What timeline does that mean?” My best guess is between now and the end of the year.
All of this is on the horizon. We are in this window of accelerated judgement, if you will, and upheaval, and the imploding literally of a culture and way of life that we have known.
It will be interesting to see how the global Nephilim overlords, you might say, will continue to try to maintain some sort of order that does not allow things to descend beyond what they can control. All of this is just what we see on one level; the level of the natural plane.
It is easy to get caught up in the signs of the times and what is happening, or the satanic order of the global elite, that is gaining more and more presence in the earth. However, to those who have eyes to see, the real action is happening on another level, the level just beyond sight: the realm of the spirit.
We would be missing it, big time, if we stop at this level of discernment and say, “Okay, this is what is happening. We have got to pray against this battle, we have got to pray against this warfare; you know, pray for America and what not.” That is probably what the religious community is going to be doing, if they have not already been in this mode. But their intercession will fall short, because they really have no understanding on what is truly happening.
We are walking out the last part of the vision of Daniel concerning the image that he was shown.
"You continued looking until a stone was cut out without hands, and it struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and crushed them.” Daniel 2:34
The stone cut out of the mountain hits the image at its feet and it implodes. That last kingdom represents the governments and kingdoms of this present age, and they are comprised of clay and iron. The clay and iron, as we know, represents the attempt of the satanic seed to completely infiltrate and merge within the seed of man. However, as the prophecy goes, the clay and iron do not mix.
We have been in this for a good long season, and some may say, “Oh well you’re missing it, Edward. That was fulfilled hundreds of years ago. We have had the Meads, the Persians, the Romans and you can always say, Well it was this one, or that one.” Maybe there was a partial fulfillment at one time of this vision, but it would have only been the partial, for this vision speaks of the days to which we have come. So much of what Daniel was shown, throughout his life, pertained to days far in the future, culminating in the timeline where he is once again raised up to enter into his inheritance. We are here, now.
The stone, cut out of the mountain, are the sons that God is raising up. They have hit the image, and are hitting the image, even now. I know the prayers and prophesies are continuing to expose the darkness behind closed doors. The whole satanic system, that has controlled, manipulated, and driven this world, is being up-ended.
The kingdom, which is coming forth, will not be built upon that which is passing away. God is bringing this age down, and the kingdom of God is being established on an entirely new level. It is a whole new thing that God is doing.
We are in the time of judgment. It is happening, and it is moving very quickly. For those who do not have understanding it will all seem to be about what is happening in the earth; the politics and the nations in a furor. There is a great deal to be concerned about, if you do not have an eye to see. The prevalent energy in the world, more and more, will be focused on the illusion of what is being propagated.
But what we know, is that all of this chaos is happening simultaneously with the releasing of the sons of God. And it is for this time that you have been brought forth. The difficulty has been that we have had to pave this road for the first time. Kingdom pioneers, if you will, carving out a map for many to follow.
As we have said, there is no sign post in the road that tells you what to expect, or what to do, as you reach various intervals in the path. We just know that we are in the time of God releasing the sons. Sometimes it may feel like everything goes the opposite way before the reality really happens and breaks forth. But the Lord is faithful, and He is leading His army, one step at a time.
The travail of all creation will become progressively more and more evident. Earthquakes and geo-physical changes are coming, but they are all part of the travail that is happening right now. Look around you. What do you see? Chaos, war, economic upheaval? No, you see a world in travail, a travail that will bring to birth the sons, and a new kingdom upon this earth. That is the truth.
As this timeline intensifies and deepens, the flip side of these developments are like a yin/yang act of balancing, for with the judgments come the release of the sons.
So, we are in the midst of a release, a deep transformational release, and it can be very difficult at first to discern. It is almost like you don’t quite have your footing, you don’t quite know what is coming through. Bear in mind the accuser, (Revelation 12:10) of the brethren is always there to accuse you, to put you down, to come in the back door and restrain your manifestation. It’s just what he does.
God has to do this. God has to finish it. He began this and He is working in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure, (Philippians 2:13), but He has to complete it. We cannot complete this. We can’t even finish the race, holding the baton on this last leg of the race, without His grace and enabling.
Be so careful not to draw any conclusion on the events going on around you, whether they are events that we do not have direct involvement with, or the events that we are intrinsically involved with and face every day.
We have to be so careful not to draw a conclusion by what our emotions or senses feel, because it is all part of the illusion. We stand upon the word that, “Faithful is He who has begun a good work, that He shall complete it - within you - unto the day of Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:24). That is a promise.
You may fall on your face seventy times seven, a hundred and seventy times seven, but the only demand He has made of us is just be open. “We are open, Lord.” We are reaching in, the best we can, while we finish going through the work of the cross (Philippians 2:8).
A word came several years ago concerning this transition into resurrection life: “You will barely remember what it was like to have lived in the battle, the oppression, and the restraint, that you have lived under all those years.” I am looking for that. This is one of the promises He spoke as we move into this change.
No one is going to pat anyone else on the back and say; “You did a good job; you did it.” We didn’t do it. The only way this process completes is that He has done it. He has done it through us and within us. In spite of us!
Our hearts are open; we lay ourselves down, we tie ourselves to the horns of the altar. We say, “Lord, our hearts cry is to finish the race, and to please you”.
This is His program. It is His deal. It is His calling upon us. We say, “Lord, be it done unto me according to Your word” (Luke 1:38). That was Mary’s cry. “Lord, just be it done unto me according to Your word.” That’s all we have to say.
Not by might nor by power but by Your spirit within us. Complete, Lord, the great thing that You are doing within Your sons. Complete it now. Finish it, Lord. None of us are worthy. None of us are capable. None of us have the strength in ourselves to do this.” But it was never about any of that. It was always about Your faithfulness to Your word.
And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles.
Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins.
Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.
We are in this window of time that I have seen coming for ten or fifteen years. Many of you, as well, have seen this coming. We are smack dab in it. We are into the changes up to our ankles, up to our knees, and it is going to get real interesting. The more interesting it gets, the greater the release will be that is coming to us, because they are tied together: judgment and release.
We thank You, Lord, that even though in many ways the mantle rests upon our shoulders, it’s really resting upon You, Lord, it’s resting upon You to see this completed. We stay the course, Lord. We keep the focus. We keep pushing and pursuing because it’s time now for the changes, the physical changes, to accelerate.
Imagine what it must have been like for the disciples, as they waited in the upper room. So many were gathered together after Christ’s ascension, and they waited. They had no idea what was going to happen. They didn’t know what to expect. There was nothing they would be able to read and say, “Okay, this is what is going to happen.” They just waited before the Lord, in intercession and prayer, and God brought the baptism of the Holy Spirit and a change that began a whole new dispensation of His dealings with man.
We are looking at something that is going to change everything. It is going to change the playing field of everything that we have ever known. It is going to bring in a level of the kingdom that has never been here before. This is where we are.
As this transition completes, we will walk as Christ, who had access to both realms; the spirit realm and the natural plane. We must realize that resurrection life will be a life in the spirit, but also a life in the natural plane. You will be able to move and maneuver in both worlds, simultaneously, but without any vulnerability. A new level of life, or life change, is coming to the sons, and we are right on track.
