A day of trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities
Zephaniah 1:15,16 -
That day is a day of wrath [fury], a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness [destruction] and desolation [ruin], a day of darkness [obscurity] and gloominess [calamity], a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high [haughty] towers [chiefs].
When the year 2013 started I had posted a message of warning to Americans, this was based on a vision I have received in April 2010. Today we see the warning has indeed come true that does not mean it ends here (I thought it would happen in November but started in December).
In today's message the warning continues and the message is not only for Americans but all those so called 'Christian nations' who have taken the Lord for granted. The message says they thought they were protected by the Lord even though internally they are spiritually hollow.
Deception is so high that it is very difficult to find preachers in theses 'Christian nations' who preach God's Word truthfully. It is not that these teachings are new; they existed since many centauries but today even the few who preached truthfully God's Word, from the little they knew are also taken into the main stream of deceit. They preach what people's ears itch to hear and not what the Lord wants to speak unto them.
The Lord is saying to these people His fury is set on them. This would not only be through natural disasters but also financial and other means. This shaking is to cause a change in heart of these people and bring the high towers down. The so called 'blessed' people will realize that the Lord is the Lord of the world every race and nation, and should not be taken for granted. Jeremiah 12:2 puts this very well. It says indeed the Lord planted them, they grew in the Lord, they also did do the Lord's work and their work did indeed bring fruit, yet the Lord says their hearts are far from Him.
Today the trumpet is blowing for these people to gather unto the Lord, to leave their place of standing and their thinking, to humble themselves and come unto the Lord, seek His truth.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, You are God and when your people floated away from You in their haughtiness. Their mouths speak about You but their hearts are far from You. They desire the blessings of this world more than your Kingdom. They sow to reap in this world. They have little knowledge of You and your Kingdom that is why they become victims of vanity. Lord, we pray for your mercy in their lives. We pray You send people who teach according to your heart, people who change hearts and bring again a passion for You and your kingdom within them and turn away your wrath...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

Jeremiah 12:2 - Thou hast planted them, yea, they have taken root: they grow, yea, they bring forth fruit: thou art near in their mouth, and far from their hearts (reins).
