AND SO, WE ARE BACK IN BUSINESS, FRIEND
AND THE NEW WILL TAKE OVER THE OLD
AND THE ANOINTED WILL OVERPOWER THOSE OF THE "OLD CLOTH"
AND MY SPIRIT WILL RISE UP UPON THIS EARTH
AND POWER AND LIFE AND LOVE I WILL SHOW FORTH
THROUGH THOSE WHO ARE TRULY MINE
TODAY - THIS DAY I OPEN A FOUNTAIN
READ ON:



#253
THE FOUNTAIN - IS OPEN!

THE WATER POURS FORTH AND LIFE IS GIVEN OUT
BUT IT WILL ONLY BE GIVEN OUT TO THOSE WHO TRULY SEEK
WITH PURE MOTIVES
THE WATER IS CRYSTAL CLEAR
FLOWING FROM HEAVEN ITSELF
BUT WHERE CAN THIS FOUNTAIN BE FOUND?
WHERE CAN ONE GO TO FIND AN ANSWER TO THEIR PROBLEMS?
WHERE CAN ONE TURN TO KNOW THE TRUTH OF LIFE?
HOW CAN YOU GET TO THIS FOUNTAIN
AND WHAT ARE YOU TO BRING WITH YOU
TO COLLECT THE WATER IN?

I WILL SHOW YOU WHERE THE FOUNTAIN IS
AND YOU ARE TO ONLY BRING WITH YOU
THE HEART OF A SMALL CHILD
AND THE WONDER AND DESIRE TO LEARN
WITH YOUR WHOLE BEING MY TRUTHS
WILL YOU FIGHT MY WAYS?
POSSIBLY
BUT IF YOU ARE TRULY THIRSTY FOR THE LIVING WATER
YOU WILL GIVE UP THE FIGHT
AND SIMPLY DRINK UNTIL YOU ARE FULLY CONSUMED BY ME
THE WATER IS AVAILABLE
THE WORDS WILL TRULY BE DELIVERED
TO ALL WHO WILL LISTEN

UNDERWATER CRISIS


"The Russian navy said Monday that a nuclear submarine with 118
crew members aboard had plummeted during naval exercises to several hundred feet below the surface of the frigid Barents Sea.

Wednesday, Russian rescuers tried several times to lower rescue capsules
to the Kursk submarine but failed because of the strong currents, limited air and poor visibility. After repeatedly refusing Western aid, the Russians relented and asked Britain and Norway to send equipment and divers.

On Saturday, Russian officials said that all the sailors trapped in the
submarine were almost certainly dead.”
The Oregonian

AND HOW IS THE PRIDE OF MAN DEALT WITH?
HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE TO PROVE A POINT?
ARE THE RUSSIANS SUPERIOR AS THEY THINK?
DO ALL PEOPLE NEED HELP AT SOME TIME?
BUT WHO WILL CALL FOR HELP OR ACCEPT HELP
WITHOUT THE PRIDE OF LIFE INTERFERING?

MANY CAME TO ME AS I WALKED THIS EARTH
AND CALLED OUT TO BE HEALED
SOME CAME AT THE DARKEST OF NIGHT
SO AS NOT TO BE SEEN TO ASK FOR HELP
BUT WHAT IS IT WITHIN MANKIND
THAT MAKES THEM THINK THAT THEY CAN DO IT ALL ALONE?
IT IS SIMPLY PRIDE
AND THOSE WHO WANT TO PASS THROUGH
THESE TIMES MUST BE WILLING TO LAY DOWN THEIR PRIDE
LOOK UP TO HEAVEN AND ASK FOR MY ASSISTANCE
AND BE WILLING TO ACCEPT THE HELP IN ANY FORM THAT I SEND
I SEND HELP IN THE FORM THAT MANY WILL NOT EASILY ACCEPT
FOR TRULY, ONLY THE HUMBLE SHALL PROGRESS

BUT THINK FOR A MOMENT
WHAT ARE YOUR PREJUDICES?
IN WHAT AREAS DO YOU BELIEVE
THAT YOU ARE INVINCIBLE?
AND YOU WILL SEE THAT I WILL ATTACK
EVERY ONE OF THESE AREAS
IN THESE TIMES FOR MY MISSION
IS NOT TO HELP YOU RETAIN YOUR PRIDE
BUT TO DESTROY YOUR PRIDE SO THAT YOU MAY LIVE
REALLY LIVE
FOR TO LIVE IS TO HAND OVER YOUR ADEQUACY TO ME
AND ADMIT THAT YOU DON'T HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS
YOU SURELY DO NOT HAVE THE ANSWER OR THE REMEDY FOR SIN
YOU SIN AND YOU MUST BE COVERED AND CLEANED OUT
BEFORE YOU CAN BE ACCEPTED INTO MY PRESENCE
COME TO ME BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE
ASK ME TO REMOVE YOUR PRIDE

DON'T BE AS THE RUSSIANS
AND WAIT UNTIL DEATH HAS DRAWN
ALL TOO NEAR

COME TO ME NOW

THE FIRES

"Land, Lives Shaped by Fire"

"Summer of blazes changes more than scenery
in Montana . . . ”

"It’s a permanent change to the landscape and a permanent change
to the way we look at our valley . . . ”

"And when the fires are done, we’ll have to shift gears into a rehabilitation mode. We’ll have to deal with mudslides and creeks full of sediment.
When you’ve got more than 200,000 acres burned, the social and
economic costs are enourmous.”
The Oregonian

EXACTLY
IT'S A PERMANENT CHANGE
TO THE WAY WE LOOK AT HUMAN LIFE
THE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC COSTS ARE ENORMOUS AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE SO FOR YOUR DECISION TO TAKE LIFE
I TOLD YOU THAT I WOULD REPAY
Editorial #202
AND I WILL CONTINUE TO IN A WAY THAT YOU MUST PAY
YOU LOOK AT YOUR LANDSCAPE AND HOMES AND PROPERTY
AS MORE VALUABLE THAN A HUMAN LIFE
THE FIRES UPSET YOU
BUT THE TAKING OF A HUMAN LIFE IS NO BIG DEAL
I WILL MAKE IT A BIG DEAL
YOU WILL PAY OVER AND OVER AND OVER
FOR TAKING MY PRECIOUS CHILDREN
YOU WILL PAY
NOW AND LATER


ALWAYS REMEMBER:
YOU ASKED FOR IT

WORLD YOUTH DAY

"Pope Draws 2 Million in to World Youth Day in Rome”
The Associated Press

YES, AND THE YOUTH WILL LEAD MY TRUE CHURCH
BUT NOT AS YOU PROPOSE OR EVEN HOPE, POPE
FOR YOU SEE
THERE IS A REVOLUTION COMING
WHERE THE YOUTH OF THIS WORLD WILL KNOW THE TRUTH
AND THE TRUTH WILL SET THEM FREE
THEY WILL NO LONGER FOLLOW A LEADER UPON THIS EARTH
OR NEED TO REST THEIR HEAD UPON THEIR CHEST IN ADORATION
FOR THE KIDS WILL BE MINE
AND THEY WILL TRULY REST
THEIR HEADS, THEIR HEARTS, THEIR SOULS
ON MY CHEST
AND I WILL EMPOWER THEM
AND NO ONE WILL STOP THEM
NO ONE

AND WHEN WILL IT BEGIN?
WHEN WILL THIS OCCASION START AND WHAT WILL START IT?
HAVE YOU HEARD OF THE ARK OF THE COVENANT
AND THE POWER THEREIN?

READ REVELATION 11:19
FOR THE MOVEMENT WILL SURELY COME WITH POWER FROM ON HIGH
IT WILL BE MARKED WITH LIGHTNING AND THUNDER
AND MY CHILDREN WILL RISE UP AROUND THIS WORLD
AND BEGIN WHAT WAS STARTED 2000 YEARS AGO AT PENTECOST

BUT FOR NOW, LET RELIGION HAVE ITS DAY
IT TRULY DOES NO HARM
FOR THE YOUTH HAVE SEEN A FRAIL LEADER
BUT SOON THEY WILL HAVE A CHOICE
BETWEEN A MAN STILL HERE ON EARTH
OR
THE RESURRECTED LORD
OF ALL


IT WILL BE A SIMPLE CHOICE FOR MANY
BUT I ALLOW THE KIDS TO SEE THE COMPETITION
SO THAT THEY MAY DISPEL ANY MYTHS OF GRANDEUR
THAT THE RELIGIOUS ONES PREACH

TIME IS COMING SOON
TICK - TICK - TICK
THE TIMING IS ALL MINE
JUST WAIT, KIDS
LOOK FOR THE LIGHTNING AND YOU, MY FRIENDS
WILL BE
THE THUNDER
HEARD AROUND THIS WORLD


EXCITING TIMES!
WORLD YOUTH DAY?
HOW ABOUT
WORLD
YOUTH
EMPOWERED
FOREVER

ALWAYS REMEMBER:
THIS GENERATION
IS
MINE!

THE DEATH OF A VOICE

I SPEAK AND MY WORDS ARE IGNORED
I SPEAK AND THE PEOPLE CONTINUE IN THEIR SIN
I SPEAK AND NO ONE OBEYS
I SPEAK, BUT ONCE I HAD TO ONLY SPEAK IN WHISPERS
AND MY PEOPLE HEARD
NOW, I SHOUT, AND MY VOICE IS DROWNED OUT
WITH CONFUSING THOUGHTS
I WISH THERE WAS A BETTER WAY TO COMMUNICATE
BUT EVEN WHEN I HAVE WRITTEN WITH MY OWN FINGER IN STONE
THE PEOPLE DO NOT OBEY
WHAT WILL THE COURSE BE FOR THOSE
WHO HAVE REFUSED MY VOICE?
I WILL SIMPLY BE SILENT
THREE WEEKS OF SILENCE THROUGH MY SERVANT
HAS SERVED THE CHURCH WELL
BUT THERE IS A DIFFERENT FORM OF SILENCE
THAT WILL NOW BE PERMANENT
TO THOSE WHO I HAVE SPOKEN TO
AND THEY HAVE DISOBEYED
THERE WILL BE NO MORE WORDS
NO MORE WARNINGS
NO MORE PLEAS
IT WILL BE AS IF I AM NOT HERE
IT WILL BE AS IF I NEVER TRIED TO WIN YOUR HEART
IT WILL BE A TRULY SOLEMN OCCASION
WHEN YOU FINALLY REALIZE THAT TIME IS OVER
I GAVE IT MY BEST SHOT
BUT I HAVE MOVED ON TO THOSE WHO WANT TO LISTEN
THERE ARE CHILDREN WHO WILL LISTEN
AND WHY SHOULD I NOT SPEAK TO THEM INSTEAD?

TO THOSE WHO I HAVE TRIED TO TRAIN IN MY WAYS
AND THEY HAVE REFUSED MY LOVE
I WILL BE SILENT
IS IT TRULY THE DEATH OF A VOICE
OR SIMPLY THE RELOCATION OF THE VOICE
FOR THOSE WHO HAVE EARS TO HEAR?
IT IS SIMPLE
IF A PARENT SHOUTS AND SHOUTS TO A CHILD
AND THE CHILD FAILS TO LISTEN
SHOULD THE PARENT CONTINUE TO SHOUT
OR WISELY SPEND THEIR TIME ELSEWHERE?

I HAVE GIVEN THOSE WHO CALL THEMSELVES MY OWN
PLENTY OF TIME TO LISTEN AND TO OBEY
NOW I WILL BE SILENT
TO ALL BUT THOSE WHO WILL CALL ME FATHER
WHO KNOW MY VOICE
WHO LISTEN AND WHO WILL OBEY

CREED - A HIGHER CALLING

"Scott Stapp’s parents thought Rock was the Devil’s music. He couldn’t join clubs or go to parties or the prom. So he ran away and started CREED, the biggest Hard-Rock band in the country. But eight million records later,
he’s got a different cross to bear.”

"In church, when the Spirit of God passed over them, people would suddenly start speaking in tongues, falling to the floor in ecstasy. It never happened
to Stapp, and he couldn’t understand why God kept passing him over.
‘I thought something was wrong with me, so I lived with
a lot of guilt.’ he recalls.”

"'I'm definitely in a better place than I’ve ever been, but I still have my old demons because my philosophies on life are much different from how I was raised,’ he says. ‘There’s always those doubts in the back of my mind: Are they right? Am I wrong?’ he smiles wistfully. ‘That’s something I’ll
probably struggle with for the rest of my life.’”
Spin magazine

OR AT LEAST
UNTIL YOU READ MY WORDS TO YOU, SON
WERE YOU UNWORTHY FOR ME TO TOUCH YEARS AGO
WHEN THE CHURCH YOU WOULD GO TO?
DID I OVERLOOK YOU AND IGNORE YOUR PLEAS?
WERE THE OTHERS MORE ACCEPTABLE TO ME?
DID I LOVE YOU LESS?
THE ANSWER TO ALL OF THE QUESTIONS IS
"NO"
FOR YOU SEE - I TOUCHED YOU DIFFERENTLY
FOR UNTO THE CHURCH IS NOT YOUR CALLING
YOU HAVE A HIGHER CALLING
AND IF YOU HAD EVER FELT A PART OF THEM
YOU WOULD HAVE REMAINED
BUT I HAVE SET YOU FREE FROM THAT PRISON
AND NOW, I WILL SET YOU FREE FROM THE PRISON
YOU HAVE CREATED FOR YOURSELF SINCE YOU WERE A SMALL CHILD

LOOK INTO MY FACE, SON
LOOK CLOSELY AND YOU WILL SEE YOUR LIKENESS
LOOK INTO YOUR OWN SON'S FACE
AND YOU SEE YOUR LIKENESS
WE ARE FATHER AND SON
WE ARE ALIKE IN MORE WAYS THAN YOU KNOW
YOU THINK THAT YOU HAVE RUN FROM ME
THAT YOU HAVE ESCAPED UNTO A DESERT PLACE
BUT YOU HAVE TRAVELED TO A PLACE - A HIGHER PLACE
"WHERE BLIND MEN SEE"
YOU WILL NOW SEE THE TRUTH
AND ALL THE YEARS OF WONDERING WILL BE OVER
YOU WILL LET ME HOLD YOU AND YOU WILL FINALLY KNOW
MY ACCEPTANCE AND MY LOVE

I DIDN'T PASS YOU OVER, YOUNG MAN
I CALLED YOU OUT OF THEIR SELF-MADE RELIGIOUS FORM
OF RULES AND CONDITIONS
FOR I WANTED YOU TO LEAD THE MASSES TO MY LOVE
RELIGIONS BRING FORTH THE RULES
OF RIGHT AND PROPER BEHAVIOR
BUT WHERE IS THE LOVE?

WHERE IS THE LOVE THAT DRAWS THE HEART "HOME"?
YOU HAVE ALWAYS HAD A HUNGER TO BE LOVED
MORE THAN MOST
FOR THE RULES WERE THERE
BUT THAT WAS ALL

SON, COME "HOME"
NOT A LUCID-DREAM, BUT SHEER REALITY
THE REALITY OF KNOWING ME IN PURITY
LET'S MAKE OUR DREAMS THE SAME
"LET'S GO THERE"
COME ON, SON

YOU'VE BEEN ON SUCH A LONG JOURNEY
AND EVEN THOUGH YOU THINK THAT YOU HAVE TRAVELED ALONE
I HAVE BEEN WITH YOU ALL THE WAY
THE MOVES THAT YOU HAVE MADE HAVE ALL HAD A PURPOSE
YOU ARE MINE
COMPLETELY MINE
BUT YOU HAVE BEEN LED WITHOUT EXPERIENCING
MY LOVE OVER YOU
COME AND KNOW MY LOVE OVER YOU
I LOVE YOU, SON
YOU CAN STAY WITH ME
PLEASE STAY WITH ME
AND KNOW ME
AND COME TO LOVE ME AS I LOVE YOU
AND KNOW THAT YOUR FUTURE IS ALL MINE
THE DEMONS WILL LEAVE AS YOU KNOW MY LOVE
THEY WILL LEAVE FOR THEY WERE THERE TO DRIVE YOU OUT
OUT AND OUT AND OUT
BUT STILL HIGHER AND HIGHER YOU WENT
AND NOW, I SUMMON YOU TO MY SIDE - TO MY CHEST
THAT YOU WOULD BECOME MY FRIEND
FOR YOU SEE - WE ARE VERY MUCH THE SAME
IN MANY WAYS
COME, SON
I CAN TAKE YOU HIGHER
LET ME SHOW YOU
EVEN THIS DAY

THERE'S A SYMBOL ON YOUR ARM
THERE IS A CREED THAT YOU ARE SHOWING THE WORLD
THE CROSS YOU SEE IS MADE OF CHAINS
FOR I WAS NAILED TO A CROSS
NOT ONE OF CHAINS, BUT ONE OF WOOD
THE CROSS OF YOUR LIFE HAS BEEN ONE OF CHAINS, FRIEND
WHERE YOU HAVE FELT TRAPPED AND CHAINED TO YOUR UPBRINGING
BUT I WILL CUT THROUGH THE CHAINS THIS DAY
I WILL SHOW YOU THE REASON THAT YOU WERE
BORN INTO THAT FAMILY
AND HAD THE UPBRINGING YOU DID
FOR YOU ARE TO SET THE MASSES FREE
THAT ARE CHAINED TO RELIGION
YOU HAD TO LEAVE HOME TO ESCAPE
BUT THINK OF THE MANY KIDS THAT DON'T LEAVE
THAT ARE TRAPPED AND CHAINED TO A WAY
THAT WILL NOT BRING LIFE
WRITE THE SONGS, SON, TO SET THEM FREE
I WILL GIVE YOU THE WORDS
TO SET THEM FREE
TO BRING THEM INTO MY REALM
TO BRING THEM HIGHER AND ALLOW THEM TO KNOW MY LOVE

AS YOU ALREADY KNOW,
I DO NOT WANT YOUR GROUP CALLED, "CHRISTIAN"
FOR WHAT DOES THAT MEAN IN THIS AGE AND TIME?
IT IS A MOCKERY
THERE ARE RESURRECTED ONES AND THERE ARE RELIGIOUS ONES
BUT WHAT IS A "CHRISTIAN" AS IT IS CALLED
THIS DAY AND TIME?
DO NOT LET THE PEOPLE LABEL YOU
JUST LIVE
JUST LIVE
JUST LIVE

PEOPLE WANT TO LABEL SO THEY CAN IGNORE YOU
OR PLACE YOU WHERE YOU HAVE NO POWER
BUT YOU WILL BREAK THROUGH EVEN THOSE CHAINS

COME CLOSE OFTEN AND I WILL SPEAK TO YOU OF MY LOVE
I WILL GIVE YOU SONGS TO SING TO THE MASSES
SET MY KIDS FREE, YOUNG MAN
THIS IS WHY YOU WERE "PASSED OVER" WITHIN
THE BOUNDARIES OF CHURCH WALLS
FOR YOU WERE MEANT FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD
YOU ARE MINE, SON
AND YOU WILL NEVER FEEL PASSED OVER AGAIN
BUT YOU WILL BEGIN TO KNOW MY RICH LOVE
OVER YOU AND THROUGH YOU

YOU LOOK AT YOUR YOUNG SON
AND WOULD YOU NOT DO ANYTHING FOR HIM?
I FEEL THE SAME ABOUT YOU, BUT 100 TIMES GREATER
AND NOW, I WILL PROVE IT
I WILL GIVE YOU SONGS NIGHT AND DAY
YOU WILL AWAKE WITH NEW SONGS OF LOVE ON YOUR LIPS

NO, YOUR LIFE WILL NOT ALWAYS BE FILLED WITH SERIOUSNESS
IT WAS ONLY TO GET YOU TO THIS POINT
LET'S HAVE SOME FUN NOW
FATHER AND SON
WHAT DO YOU SAY?
ARE YOU READY?
I THINK YOU ARE

I LOVE YOU, SON
I ALWAYS HAVE
I ALWAYS WILL

A CITY OF DESTINY

IT IS SURELY TIME TO BUILD A NEW CITY
A CITY BRIGHT WITH GRANDEUR
A CITY WHERE I WILL COME AND LIVE AMONGST MY PEOPLE
BUT HOW WILL THIS CITY BE BUILT AND WHO WILL BUILD IT?
WILL IT ONLY BE IN ONE PLACE
OR WILL IT TRAVERSE THIS EARTH?

I HAVE TORN DOWN
THE FAULTY FOUNDATIONS OF RELIGION
AND EXPOSED THE HEARTS AND PLANS WITHIN

BUT STILL THE PEOPLE CLING TO THE OLD WAY
AND NO PROGRESS IS MADE

BUT I WILL START OVER - START ANEW
AND WE WILL SIMPLY BUILD
THOSE WHO HEAR MY VOICE AND OBEY
WILL KNOW MY PLANS
THEY WILL NOT LIVE EVEN ONE DAY WITHOUT
KNOWING THEIR PURPOSE
AND MY WILL FOR THEM EACH DAY

I HAVE MANY BUILDERS ALREADY
BUT MANY WHO CALL THEMSELVES BY MY NAME
WILL BE EXCLUDED
FOR YOU SEE
THEY BRING THEIR OWN PLANS
AND THAT IS WHY THE CHURCH IS BUILT ON SAND THIS DAY
ONLY THOSE WHO LISTEN AND OBEY MAY BUILD MY CITY

WHERE WILL MY CITY BE LOCATED?
WHEREVER MY PEOPLE ARE
IF MY PEOPLE ARE PRESENT - I WILL BE IN THEIR MIDST
AND MY CITY WILL FORM
NOT NECESSARILY A BUILDING BUILT BY HUMAN HANDS
BUT A CITY OF PEOPLE THAT ARE JOINED BY MY SPIRIT

STAND TALL, BUILDERS
STAND VERY, VERY TALL
AND DO NOT LOOK BACK OVER YOUR SHOULDERS
AT THE OLD
FOR IT IS GONE WITHIN YOUR HEART
THE MEMORIES I WILL TAKE FROM YOU
AS IF YOU ARE NOT EVEN OF THIS EARTH
AND WE WILL BUILD SOMETHING GLORIOUS TO BEHOLD

COME NOW
LET'S BUILD TOGETHER!!!




***
AND WHAT DO I SAY TO YOU, MY FRIEND
AFTER YOUR YEARS OF REVEALING THE FAULTY FOUNDATION
BUT FEW SHOWED UP TO CHANGE THINGS?
DID I SEND YOU ON A WRONG MISSION?
WAS IT ONLY PRACTICE TO BUILD YOUR CHARACTER
OR WAS IT LOVE TRYING TO SAVE THOSE
WHO ARE CAUGHT WITHIN THE OLD STRUCTURE?
I ASSURE YOU - IT WAS LOVE
AND YOU WILL ALWAYS STAND BY MY SIDE FOR THOSE I LOVE
BUT THEY WILL NOT ALLOW THEIR STRUCTURES TO CRUMBLE
THEY HOLD THEM TOGETHER WITH THEIR OWN PRIDE AND SWEAT
BUT WE WILL BUILD SOMETHING NEW AND MAYBE A FEW WILL COME OUT
IT IS LOVE THAT WE WILL BUILD THE NEW WITH
IT IS JOY THAT WILL OVERCOME YOU AS YOU BUILD
MY HANDS WILL COVER YOURS AS YOU PICK UP THE TOOLS OF THIS TRADE
AND BUILD AND BUILD AND BUILD
YOU HAVE ALWAYS ENJOYED BUILDING THINGS FOR YOUR CHILDREN
AND NOW, YOU WILL BUILD FOR MY CHILDREN
IT WILL BE A HOUSE OF LOVE
A CITY OF PROMISE AND DESTINY
FORGET THE PAST
LET MY LOVE COVER ALL THE WOUNDS
AND LET'S BUILD
IN GREAT JOY!
SHALOM, FRIEND?

Great PEACE is mine this day
for to tear down is not my forte
Even as You gave me Jeremiah 1:10 years ago
I hoped that the first part would pass quickly
"Now, I have put My words in your mouth.
See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot
and tear down, to destroy and overthrow,
to build and to plant."

and now it is over
and great PEACE is mine
May I build Your City with the very Love and Joy of Heaven
and may it please You and cause You to well up with pride
for a job well-done by Your Hands
through Your people
