Your message burns in my heart and bones, and I cannot keep silent.
(Jeremiah 20:9)

Great Deception in the World (Word)
As we progressed through the month of December 2012, I began to sense in my spirit, through dreams
and words from the Lord, that there was much conflict all around.
On December 11, 2012, I recorded in my journal: Much conflict in the air! During this particular night, I
dreamed of people running down a street and guns or bombs going off and people escaping through this
conflict. There was much more to the dream and most of it was about evil rising up.
Then, three days later, on December 14, 2012, 20 children and 6 adults were massacred at Sandy Hook
Elementary School in Connecticut (total of 28 died).
As most normal people reacted, I too felt deeply for the many families and friends that were traumatized
by this great loss. However, I woke the next day with a different type of groan within my spirit, so I inquired
of the Lord to understand what was the nature or meaning of this groaning. Without delay, the Lord spoke
to me.
There is great deception in the world today. I have ordained it because man's heart has turned from
Me. Man has exchanged the truth of God for a lie; therefore, I have turned their hearts over to
impurity. I have sent a deluding influence so they will believe what is false. They have not seen fit to
acknowledge Me any longer, so I have given them over to a depraved mind. The church has
exchanged the truth of God for the things of God and has lost the preeminence of Christ.
I needed no interpretation of these words, for they are from scripture, specifically, Romans 1:18-32 and 2
Thessalonians 2:11.
After the massacre, the reaction of America, especially the reaction of the politicians and the media, was
quite telling. Most all comments and calls for action were focused, and still are, on treating the symptoms:
controlling or banning guns, placing armed guards in every school, and beefing up mental health
intervention, to name a few. But hardly anyone cried out that we need to repent and turn to God, for He
alone is our answer to reversing the great decline of our nation.
On the political front, only one well-known polarizing figure actually pointed to God as the answer. There
may have been others, but if they did speak out, their voices were either ignored by the media or drowned
out by a cacophony of voices of humanistic intelligence and reason.
On the individual front, it seems that most people look at the other guy as the problem and fail to look
into the worldly mirror of their own heart.
On the church level, at least the public church that the world sees (not the church Jesus is building and He
sees), it seems that it has failed to heed Paul's word to seek above where King Jesus is seated and not the

things on the earth. Parts of the visible church have become just as politicized and worldly-minded as any
other man-made institution or organization.
This is where we are today as a nation. We have self-righteousness on all levels and few are looking for
the righteousness of God, which, of course, only comes through faith in the Son of God. We are an
unrighteous nation that refuses to turn to God. The fact of the matter is that we are living out what Paul
wrote in Romans 1.

Interestingly, Hurricane Irene (2011), Hurricane Sandy, and the Sandy Hook massacre all occurred as
traumatic events in the same general region of the US. In the days leading up to each of these events, I
was given dreams or words that indicated something was coming.
With Irene, I was told that something was going to happen in the southeast, and two days later it was
announced that Irene had formed into a tropical storm headed for the southeast Bahamas. Twelve hours
before Sandy formed, I had a dream of a major storm that involved snow and major power outages and
heard: Storms are coming; they are already here. Then, two days before Sandy Hook, I dreamed and
sensed much conflict in the air.
Interestingly, there were about 46 days between Hurricane Sandy hitting the region and the Sandy Hook
massacre. In biblical numerology, the number 46 signifies Herod's temple and man without the holy spirit .
Herod killed male babies in an attempt to stop the man-child Christ from coming forth. We are at the point
in history when the powers of darkness are at work in an attempt to stop the first fruits anointed
conquerors of Christ from coming forth. But nothing stops God, for He has set the appointed time. When
a nation is without the spirit of God at work in their hearts, they exchange the truth of God for the lie that
they do not need God in their daily lives and governance, and they no longer see fit to acknowledge God.
The result is impurity of heart, degrading passions, and depraved minds, and we all as a nation pay a steep
price for this. God's judgment is upon us. But, please keep this one thought in mind at all times: it is not
for our ultimate destruction but for our ultimate glory .
It is time to wake up, repent, and seek God with our whole heart. It is time to acknowledge the creator
and sovereign of all things through whom we all exist and are upheld by His love and for His glory. Now is
the time!
The Father has set in motion the return of His Son, King Jesus, the ruler of the kings of the earth, and the
one who has inherited the nations and possesses the earth.
Let us prepare our hearts to meet the king.
