God the Father, the creator has created Earth that we might dwell here and experience all of the goodness of the land and the air, the water, the sweet smell of the flowers the wonderful taste of the fruit, the refreshing smell of morning dew, the beauty of the snow on the leafless trees in the middle of winter, all these things God has created for you. Despite the beauty of it all, there is also destruction on earth. There is the destruction that comes from the enemy and there is the destruction that is a result of God's wrath upon the heathen, the sinner, the wicked, the rebellious, and the unbelievers. God opens the door to allow the destruction of the enemy to come through, but if you are covered under the blood, it shall not come nigh your dwelling.
So I say unto you, cover yourself under the blood that you might be protected. When God delivered the people of Israel from Egypt he instructed Moses to tell his people to put the blood upon their houses, "And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it." Exodus 12:7 KJV. "And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt". Exodus 12:13 KJV. Call the protection of the blood of Jesus upon your house. Speak the power of the anointing into your dwelling. Fall to your face and surrender unto the Holy presence of God. Allow his Holy Spirit to dwell within you with power and when God sends the plagues to this land, when destruction hits the earth, you will be protected. God is calling for his people to come into his inner courts, because if you are in the inner courts of God then you are save from the destruction at hand.
There is no need to live in fear of the things to come nor to fear things at hand, for he did not give us the spirit of fear, but of power and a sound mind. The power comes from the blood, from the anointing, from the presence of the Holy Spirit and a sound mind comes from the knowledge of God's Word and his promises, from the faith that builds inside of you as you walk according to his will and watch his supernatural powers work miracles in your life. These are the gifts from God, knowledge, power, wisdom, strength, righteousness, self-control, charity, peace (of mind), if these dwell in you then you will be protected when destruction hits the city.
With every new generation there comes a new level of evil, for it is written in the book of Daniel when he had his great vision of the spiritual war involving the four kings of north, south, east and west, "Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honor the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honor with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things." Daniel 11:37-38 KJV. This evil king worshiped a "god" that his fathers never knew. We can see the same thing manifesting in recent decades, if we look back on the sixties we see a time of civil oppression for minorities. Minorities risked their lives, were tormented while seeking equal treatment in America, during the Civil Rights movement. In the seventies we saw drugs start to prevail in all socio-economic families across America and these drug spirits began to destroy the family structure. In the eighties we began to see the drug demon proliferate even more into the communities as people became afraid in their own homes. Innocent lives were taken in drive by shootings, gang warfare was at it strongest point in the 1980's. In the nineties we began to see an evil that we have never seen before as a nation. We began to see little children selling drugs. Drug dealers began to market at the local schoolyards, mothers began to give birth to drug-addicted babies, teenage girls were giving birth to babies outside of hospitals and killing or throwing away the babies, the number of senseless murders and heinous crimes multiplied, the family unit, the underlying structure of our nation, was destroyed. Families were left without fathers as fathers were murdered as innocent victims in drug crimes and hideous murders, sent to prison for drug crimes and murdered for drug gain. We began to see mothers murdering their children. We began to see a kind of child abuse that we could not phantom in the sixties. We have seen a kind of evil that our minds cannot begin to comprehend. Iím telling you that with every wicked generation there come stronger, more powerful forms of wickedness.
There is a calling to God's people to get into position, so when God sends his wrath you will be protected! The evidence is all around you. We see destruction every day. It is all around us. I come to remind you that there will never be peace on earth until God himself establishes peace. Jesus said, "Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is. And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass. Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?" St. Luke 12:51-56 KJV.
Do you hear the sound of the trumpet calling from heaven for you to get in right standing with God? Cover yourselves and your families under the blood of Jesus. I plead with you to purify yourselves. Call upon the power of the anointing to renew your minds. You must come back into covenant with God. Consecrate yourselves that you might be protected, and I tell you turbulence from the storms of life will not overtake you. Trouble might come, but it cannot destroy you if the power of the blood and the hand of God is upon you. So I say to you, put on the full armor of Christ and trust and believe in the power of his might.
There is no peace in the world, but there is peace in the love of Jesus. Days before his death on the cross, Jesus said to his disciples, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." St. John 14:27 KJV. As God's people, we have no reason to fear any war, any terrorist, any tornado, any hurricane, nothing! We shall not fear, but we shall stand on God's word. God allows natural disasters, the stirring up of winds to create tornados, the lifting up of the ocean waters to create hurricanes. He will protect his people that rest in his tabernacle. He will hide them on the mountaintop and carry them on the wings of eagles. There is no greater power than his. "But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:" Romans 2:8-10 KJV. The kingdom of God calls for righteousness. We must walk according to the will of God and live according to the word of God, if we do so, nothing shall destroy us.
There is victory in the glory of God, for you shall overcome by your testimony and through the power of God's word. May the words of David encourage you on your spiritual journey, "I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord." Psalm 27:13-14 KJV.

Nicole, Very well put! We are watchmen as in Ezekial. We must call out that the day of the Lord is at hand. In the last days, there will be a shaking, and anything that is not rooted and grounded in Him, will not stand. May we be found anchored in the Rock of Ages. Blessings!
