What you are about to read is a greater understanding of what just happened to America and those who once served within the greatest offices of our time. This isn't a prophetic word, and it's not a political article. I have no desire to get entwined with either areas right now.
We just went from a pandemic to violent riots, then here rolling in right in time for Christmas was one of the most bizarre elections ever. And now, welcome to 2021, with all of the new changes! Most of what was just restored over the past few years has now been dismantled in less than one month.
This sort of reminds me of this scripture here; and can you imagine what the disciples where thinking back then.
"... for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last" (Luke 23:45-46, NIV).
Recently I was on the phone with a pastor friend of mine, and he asked me if I would like to pray. I didn't have anything at first and then ... I just simply opened my mouth. Promptly, I witnessed a vision of America resting before me and completely covered with ocean water. This water was somewhat calm, safe but dangerously deep. This might come to mind if you would think of yourself sitting at the beach and near the ocean.
The ocean waves were moving across the surface, while the glimmering sun radiated back into my eyes. From one side of the country to the other, there it was, a beautiful site to see. A huge ship sat upon the waters. The structure of this ship was like an older pirate ship, but in reality, it looked more like a modern-day warship.
I could see this great ship had undergone some severe attacks. Though still sailing and strong, I knew in my heart that this ship wouldn't be able to withstand any future attacks. The relentless assault on this ship was too much for one man or any group to handle. With confidence, just two more years of this and this magnificent ship would have sunk.
At once and without alarm, the ship sank. Gone—going completely under the water—just like that. It was totally submerged within the deep ocean and would never come back! Now completely under water, something unusual began to occur, similar to a caterpillar crawling down the branch and into its cocoon. Tucked deep into the inside, this little caterpillar turns itself into a sloppy, slimy stew. Once dead, a single cell burst into its gooey inners and now, the formation of something that once was is forged into something totally different. From crawling caterpillar to gooey stew emerges a beautiful butterfly (sometimes a moth).
And here you have it: God's perfect, seamless and creative plan.
This amazing ship, now completely submerged within the ocean, transformed into something completely different. The warship turned into one of the most powerful submarines I have ever seen. It easily is four times the size of the ship that once floated upon the waters.
I'm not a war-buff, a submarine designer or even someone with any prior military experience. The most technologically advanced war-machine now totally submerged deep within the oceans is completely undetected from above, and it is totally lethal.
Some of you in America think we just lost the battle. Our plans are not God's plans, and His ways are not our ways (Isa. 55:8). The greatest thing that could have ever happened in America just did happen. The truth is that God sank this now vulnerable ship intentionally in order to turn it into one of the most powerful submarines ever designed on earth or imaginable by man.
When Jesus died that day on the cross, it looked completely hopeless for those who loved him. I'm sure Satan laughed, and Satan's demons probably danced and mocked on Jesus's tomb (if they could). All the while, three days later the Son of God immerged from deep down into the treacherous grip of death. See the scripture here.
"'Don't be alarmed,' he said. 'You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him'" (Mark 16:6).
Jesus had to die in order to be resurrected. So, who's celebrating now?
Concerning the events of the past several months, I didn't see it until just now. Please understand; what just happened to our country wasn't by mistake. God strategically orchestrated it because He loves you and those involved that much.
God's plans are higher and much deeper than ours. If you could see what I just witnessed, you would be laughing right now. Satan just made a huge mistake. America is going to go deep with God.
