It is with great sadness that I saw the terrorism of 9/11/01 unfold on the news. I grieve with the rest of the world. In the midst of such a horrendous upheaval, it has left us stunned and sober, touching the souls of mankind to examine our foundations. For most, that foundation is their level of faith in their religion. But the Lord Jesus Christ will be Lord over all lords, shaking the foundations of every nation and every religion in order to harvest a multitude of souls unto Himself. It has begun.


Two days before terror struck our nation and reverberated throughout the world, I wrote a significant prophetic post and released it to my list on 9/9/01. I feel that it was the Word of the Lord for His bride in preparation for what occurred on 9/11/01 and for the future. Perhaps you will see what I mean as I share with you some direct quotes from President Bush response to this sudden terror. I felt they were direct confirmations to that prophetic post of 9/9:


"Our country is strong. Terrorist acts can shake the foundation of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America."



"I personally believe this year has been the grand finale and climaxing year of examination. In these 12 years, our lives have gradually become just like that bed: stripped, upended, undone, and turned upside down. The purpose was to get to our foundations in order to discard the old and replace it with the new."


The president's day began in an elementary SCHOOL. After being told of the news, he said, "The resolve of our great nation is being tested. But make no mistake: We will show the world that we will pass this test."


"In my praying over this post and where we are in the time line, I saw a large magnifying glass and remembered seeing the same magnifying glass in years past. A magnifying glass represents close scrutiny, or examination. To my understanding it has been like a school exam or "test." (Ouch)"


Bush quoted from the 23rd Psalm, "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me."



It is vital that as this fiery transition from the church to the world occurs, that we return to our resting place. If we have our eyes on worldly circumstances and not on the Lord, we will fear. The Lord wants to deliver His church from all fear."

"The scripture says that He makes me lie down in green pastures and leads me beside still waters. (Ps 23:2) Sheep will not lie down if they are afraid. They must be free from sudden, startling dangers and free from tormenting pests. They are free when they see the Shepherd with them and know His personal care."

"…I am reminded of being in the eye of the storm, where everything may be spinning around and quite chaotic. But inside that eye is a place so secure in the Lord, there is perfect peace and nothing can steal our joy - our assurance. It’s a place where we know we are safe, and we do not fear. It is also a place where we do not give an inch to the enemy and allow him any access to plunder our lives."

As I watched the symbols of world-wide commerce fall into a plumb of ashes… as I saw people running from the ash ‘bomb’ and suddenly overcome as it swept past them… as I watched fire trucks plow through ashes… as I watched survivors board buses, literally caked white in ashes, I knew the Word of the Lord. I realized that He had given me His preparatory Word in that posting of 9/9/01. Here are two verses I quoted:

"I had heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance." (Job 42:6 NLT)

"Job’s final statement was not unlike Psalm 102 where it says, "I eat ashes instead of my food. My tears run down into my drink because of your anger and wrath.

For you have picked me up and thrown me out. My life passes as swiftly as the evening shadows. I am withering like grass. BUT YOU, O LORD, WILL RULE FOREVER. Your fame will endure to every generation." (Ps 102:9-12 NLT)"


If you notice, that the above scripture written before the tragedy, was from Psalm 102. The Lord told Bob Jones many years ago that the number of the Psalms represented God’s Word for that particular year. At the time I heard Bob say this, I went backwards in my personal life and tested it with major personal milestones and I was totally amazed how those years lined up with the Psalm. Because of this I have had my eyes, ears and prayers toward Psalms 102 for many years, praying over every detail.

At first I was concerned that it meant great calamity, being cut down in mid life. (vs 23-24) There are many applications to this Psalm including the possibility of pointing towards Israel (who is now in midlife since statehood in 1948). There are also spiritual applications to God’s Words intended for His church. There are many with midlife death sentences (whether physical or spiritual) that are living on the edge and brink of spiritual and physical health.


After painting such a gloomy environment in the first 11 verses, the Word of the Lord kicks in and he says "But you, O LORD, will rule forever. Your fame will endure to every generation. You will arise and have mercy on Jerusalem-- NOW is the time to pity her, NOW is the time you promised to help." (Ps 102:12,13)


A few months ago I was standing in the kitchen of a friend and doing her dishes. As I was praying over her life, I distinctly heard the Lord say, "Beauty for ashes." She is a overcoming Christian who has seen the ravages of her life live on the brink for many, many years, and yet she has great unwavering faith. At this point in time she was totally and completely convinced she would immediately be "fired" from her job. She repented of everything she could think of, and we continued to pray that the Lord would turn her events and bring her favor and she witnessed an obvious turn around and she was never fired.

I see her life as a divine example of so many past painful war stories, where the Lord redeems it into something good. I feel that she is an example of the church right now. We have come through that fiery 12 year season, feeling and believing that we are going to be disqualified and "fired" from our callings. And yet nothing could be further from the truth. (Mal 3:3)

Isa 61:1-4 KJV

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them BEAUTY FOR ASHES, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

4 And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.

As we come out of our own personal fires, and the fires are passed onto the world, we will be used as ambassadors of healing and deliverance to the nations and to the unbelievers. Our prayers, our past sufferings will bear fruit for those who are not innocent. (Job 22:30) And this is all the more reason to pray for the fires now being released upon the world, that the Lord will have mercy in doing so — and that if they must come, they come slowly and mixed with His love and mercy. How the world can go through the coming storms and fires without a relationship with the Lord is inconceivable. And yet that is exactly the point, to DRIVE THEM TO THE LORD. He is the water of life. (John 4:14) And the church will be pouring out that water so that the enemy does not get the upper hand.


{From article called "The Lord’s Heart For Intercession" from Bob Jones and Keith Davis - April 15, 1999.}

"…They will be able to extinguish portions of these fires as their prayers become heavenly "precipitation". The Lord told Bob that the fires cannot be stopped, however, we can prevent them from occurring all at one time and their effects can be curtailed. These are spiritual fires that will be verified by natural fires.

The Lord instructed Bob to announce to the church, "DO NOT FAINT AT THIS TIME FOR THE FIRES WILL LEAVE THE ASHES OF RENEWAL." These events are part of the preparation in righteousness necessary for the coming harvest. Beware when they say peace and prosperity for that is when sudden destruction will come…"

The revelation came to several of us prophetic that the sudden date of this national terror (9/11) referred to a scripture. For me it was strongly quickened that as far as the church is concerned, it meant Psalms 91, especially Psalms 91:1: "He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." I feel that Psalm 91 is the Word of the Lord for our times, and again my post of 9/9/01, "Return to Your Resting Place" is what I believe is God’s answer to the sudden worldly events.


A few days after 9/11 events we had a storm sweep over our state and during the storm the Lord told me that it was a sign of His Word of the storm coming upon the world, and to take note of how the events played out at our home. I noticed that I heard the first thundering boom around 9 PM as I was shutting down my computer and going to bed. The last boom I heard at our house was promptly at 1 PM as I looked at the clock. It was no coincidence that the numbers were 9 and 1. (91)

A very unusual thing occurred while we watched and listened to the storm play its hand. Perhaps other regions have different kinds of storms, but our thunder and lightning storms usually have a lot of rain and wind accompanying. This storm was very unusual as there was no rain and no wind at our house. It was very still and that was the reason it stayed for four hours. As my husband and I united in prayer I could see a faint misty like dew fall below the street light right outside our window. It would leave when we stopped praying. We prayed for America and also that the Lord would put out any fires started from this storm. The storm was loud and flashy, but we felt safely under His covering. I heard the Lord say that we were protected.

There were other things I noted about this storm. One, my son was camping under the stars at a watchtower / observatory and watching the entire sky light up for hours. They were too far away to hear the blasting thunder, and so he said it was like truly watching a display of the glory of God. He had never seen lightning come so fast and vivid for so long. My Dad saw the storm from his town, and he said there were between 20-30 strikes per minute. He was very concerned about forest fires.

At one moment (ten minutes to midnight) there was a HUGE boom and our lights flashed off for a brief second. Just as I was deciding whether to get the candles out, they came back on and the touch lamp beside my bed came on past its most brilliant setting. (It had been off prior to this, the power surge turned it on.) At that boom, I came rising out of my bed literally shouting "In Jesus Name!" several times. It was thunderous and intimidating. I do not know if the transformer above our street light got a surge or not, but it was violent. Later I found out that the transformer next to our pastor’s house had been struck at this time, and their lights were out for several hours. They were without electricity but they were safe. There were homes and trees in the area that were struck by lightning and also shattered windows.

I saw the above quickened to mean:

1. 9 to 1 = Psalms 91 for those who abide in Him. Those who pray and watch, abiding in Him have the promise of Psalm 91 and His protection, although flashing and powerful circumstances around them may become very loud and intimidating.

2. The water of united intercession will be vital in keeping demonic fires under control.

3. The storm will not be over quickly. It will last at least 4 years.

4. Some of the children will be so safely kept from the fear and intimidation of sudden events that they will only see the glory of the Lord as He displays His awesome power.

5. Some will go without electricity, some will not. Just as lightning strikes, the storm will seem to hit and miss from one place to another.


In the post of 9/9/01 I began it with a personal joke. In hindsight it is certainly NO laughing matter as relating to the tragedy of 9/11. However in hindsight I can see the joke was a prophetic parable. The joke was about Moses being a "basket case." And that really was the state I felt myself and the church had been in for some time (especially this climaxing year). In hindsight, the joke was quickened to me that those who had a death sentence upon their head as Moses did, were protected in an ark and sent down the rough rivers… with a future of being "drawn out" from that death sentence. (Moses name means drawn out.)

I wrote this post a couple days after 9/11 and have been waiting upon the Lord to release it. Just one day after I wrote the above paragraph, I went to a store and saw a ceramic piece that drew my attention. I am not usually attracted to things like this in shopping. I am much more practical in taste and don’t stop to look at much of anything unless it has a purpose. But I stopped in front of this scene. My eyes gazed upon it and I thought how pretty it was. Immediately I recognized the anointing of the Lord and was trying to figure out WHY I was suddenly feeling His drawing to gaze upon this piece.

It was like hide and seek in slow motion as my blind eyes were opened one step at a time to see His Word. As I was trying to figure out what there was about this piece that was anointed, my eye first glanced at a baby in a women’s arms. Then my eye went to the top of a basket lid that another lady was holding. I said very surprised, "Why THAT looks like a basket lid, and that baby reminds me of Moses!" I knew it couldn’t be Moses. Then I saw a river and another lady hiding behind a tree. And then I saw an empty basket in the river! This HAD to be baby Moses, just freshly drawn out of the river!!! I looked on the box and sure enough it was Moses. I rejoiced with such a beautiful, clear Word and confirmation.

For those who abide in Him in the days to come, remember that you are saved and preserved for a purpose. The Lord has preserved a remnant for Himself. He has been working a long time on you to prepare you to be poured out like His finest wine to a hurting and wounded world. To those who have gone through the fiery kiln, He will do amazing works through each one of you. You will begin to see in the days to come, as your personal fires cool, just exactly why He brought you to this day. He has never left you, He has not abandoned you, and He never will.


I want to close with a Word to Ponder. Words to Ponder are given to me based upon rhema of His still small voice, dreams, visions, parables, etc. I came across this one today as I was searching "911" in my rhema data base. It blew me away when I realized the relevance.

This particular one was written on 8/27/98 for a person whose name means, "Consecrated to God." The following is the original version except that I have inserted the words "those consecrated to God" instead of the person’s name. It is also important to understand that at the time of writing, this person had been dealt quite a death blow and went through a literal 911 life saving experience. Since that time this person has fallen into sin and rebellion. I believe that this Word is an invitation. I feel that those believers who are in rebellion and sin will miss this opportunity, and instead they will be caught below the coming storms where they are purified with fire.


Last call for the flight called "those consecrated to God." That’s flight 912 — the flight after nine-one-one (911) Take your seat - those consecrated to God, there’s been a place won for you. Buckle up, for in keeping your conscience void of offense, there is divine restraint against demonic turbulence. "Up and away," says your Captain. I’m flying this plane. Rest easy, for I carry you.

One thing am I desiring of you, and that is that you release your control. Let go of your inner wrestling and give Me the Pilot’s seat. For I alone can carry you safely to your rainbow. Lean back in your chair and rest in Me. My flight will carry you without your strength, for My strength is made perfect in your weakness.

Together we fly through the storms of fury. Look below! Those black clouds are under your feet as we soar up and through, onto the other side. Those consecrated to God, open your eyes and see. See the distance stretch before you! For I give you a future and a hope. A new beginning promised for those consecrated to God. A rainbow coming closer.

Lighten your heart those consecrated to God. Even now my angelic stewards are bringing you nourishment. What is this? It’s a bowl full of cherries, minus the pits. Eat hardy and enjoy your flight.

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah 40;31)

{end of Word to Ponder}

In the days to come, remember "those consecrated to the Lord" that you are saved and preserved for a purpose. The Lord has preserved a remnant for Himself. He has been working a long time on you to prepare you to be poured out like His finest wine to a hurting and wounded world. To you who have gone through the fiery kiln, He will do amazing works through each one of you. You will begin to see in the days to come, as your personal fires cool from the kiln, just exactly why He brought you to this day. (Col 1:27)
