I was outside noticing the many butterflies flitting about, and I was telling the Lord that butterflies to me always seem to indicate change is coming, when He began to speak this message to me.
Change is indeed coming into My people's lives this year, Daughter. Mighty change is coming to this country, and all the changes will not be good ones. Some change, disguised as good, is evil in its intent towards My People and My message. The gospel is being silenced in too many arenas. In coming times, it will be harshly attacked. My people will be attacked along with My Word.
Many do not see or believe this will happen here, yet it has been planned for some time. My people are not free to worship Me openly as before. This nation founded on belief in Me no longer sees its need to serve Me. It has rejected Me and now I shall reject it as a nation.
Darkness is coming, My children. Prepare for darkness, for it shall overtake you. Great darkness of heart and mind and soul, like nothing your minds can comprehend. The enemy's forces are on the move, attacks are planned and being carried out in this time, yet many who say they are Mine refuse still to see what lies ahead. When they realize the truth, it shall be too late for them. The judgments will be at their doorstep, and they will have no time to prepare their hearts for what befalls them.
The enemy seeks to destroy all that is of Me in the earth. He seeks your destruction and the destruction of all you hold dear, My children. Guard your hearts and minds from his onslaught of lies and deceptions. Cling to one another as one in Me. Help one another in this time. Be found in Me and studying My Word for that alone is enough to sustain you in times coming. If you have My Word in your heart, you truly have all you need to survive.
Watch and pray. The darkness comes.
2 Cor. 4:3-4: But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Matthew 5:11-12: Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Joel 2:2: A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
Eph. 4:3-4: Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
