America is a Great Ship of State that is Sinking
Given by Gwen Shaw in 2000
America, thou art a great ship of state that has sailed the stormy seas of history in these last centuries. Thou hast been known for thy great beauty, thy luxury, thy advanced and modern technology, for thou art ahead of many nations in inventions and the comforts of life. Thy renown has gone out to all the world and thou art the envy of the nations. Many seek to copy you and be like you. You have been the model of freedom and expression. And you have sacrificed and sent humanitarian and spiritual help to all nations. Your sons have died on many distant battlefields to free nations of tyrants. You have shared your wealth with the needy, the starving and the lost. Your goodness has been carefully monitored by the angels who keep the record.
But you are like the great Titanic which thought itself to be unsinkable. And your pride in your greatness has blinded you to the true state of your demise, for beneath the waters of visibility, in the fog of your pleasures and the lusts and greed that is possessing and controlling you, you have struck an invisible “iceberg,” and alas, your ship is cracked and torn open in its hull. You are unaware, for your prophets are not sounding a true alarm of the actual damage that has been done to you, and you are a doomed ship that is sinking fast.
IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME
Of that fact, there is no doubt! America, you are a sinking ship! It is only a matter of time. Your intercessors, by working the “water pumps” of many tears can only delay your final end. But they cannot keep you afloat for an indefinite period of time.
And I weep in the heavens for you, for I am the One who created you, blessed you and made you great. I did it because of your founding fathers and mothers who loved Me and made great sacrifices for Me. They left homes and loved ones to be faithful to My Holy Word. They came to you through fire and through blood, and they built you up stick by stick, stone by stone and life by life.
But now, thou art sinking, yea, thou great ship of state, thou art sinking, because thy captains have not been “on deck.” They have been sleeping in their “staterooms” of luxury and worldliness and sins of every nature.
Moreover, the danger is magnified and thy loss of life is multiplied, by the fact that thou has not enough life-boats to save all who are on board. Many will be lost in the depth of the stormy seas when your ship goes down.
AMERICA WILL DO GOOD TILL THE LAST HOUR
But even in this last hour, as thou art sinking, thou shalt, because of thy intercessors who are amongst thee, send forth messengers as arrows that are flames of fire, lit by the Holy Ghost, into the nations of the world.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED BY THE PROPHETS OF GOD
In the days of your visitation I have sent my faithful servants from many nations to warn you of your lukewarmness and your worldliness. I sent them from Africa, England, Germany, China, Russia, and Korea. I even sent Dumitru Duduman from Romania to warn you. But what have you done with these messages of warning? You have called for the musicians to play you another song, and you have opened another bottle of liquor to drown out the convictions of the Holy Ghost that would put the fear of God in you so that you might repent.
I beg you, do not scoff nor reject the messengers I have sent with My Warning Message. Accept it, and repent! In your mouth it will be bitter, but it will ease your stomach, and it will save some lives.
IN THIS FINAL HOUR THERE WILL BE ONE FINAL VISITATION OF THE MIRACULOUS
This is the final hour of visitation, and like I did in Topeka, Kansas; Azusa Street, Los Angeles; and like I spoke through men like Evan Roberts and George Whitefield, I will blow one more time across this land. But it will be a revival wind that is mixed with woe and danger, for this nation did not heed the gentle, loving breeze of the Holy Spirit, nor the sweet cooing and breath of the Dove; therefore the fierce hurricane wind, even the terrible, tempestuous wind, called “Euroclydon” will now blow across all of this land, and there will be no place to escape to.
PRIDE HAS BLINDED SOME
I cannot use those whom I used in the past who are sending a false sound. They have become tinkling brass and sounding cymbals because they do not serve Me out of love, nor in holiness; and their fear of Me has departed, for their pride in the great things I have done through them has blinded them.
Your show of religion will vanish; for I have heard you, whom I have once anointed and used greatly, now mocking Me and My signs and wonders. You have lost your first love for Me. Without this love, you cannot know truth, for Truth is Love, and Love is Truth. I am the Way, the TRUTH, and the Life. God is LOVE! Listen, and learn, oh, ye proud of heart!
THE PRAYERS OF OUR ANCESTORS STILL AVAIL
Great trials and tribulations will come to this nation. But the prayers of your ancestors have come up to My throne, and I hear them and will rise up in your midst, and you shall know that I, the Lord your God have spoken!
HANG THE TEN COMMANDMENTS BACK ON THE WALL!
Open your heart directly to Me. Turn back to Me and the Bible as your only source. Put the Ten Commandments back on the walls of your government buildings; and LIVE BY THOSE LAWS! DO IT NOW! EVERY MOMENT COUNTS!
SAINTS, HOLD STEADY, LET GOD DO WHAT HE HAS TO DO!
I will do things in this nation which I have never done before. Hold steady, as I begin to discipline you. I will warn some of you ahead of time, and you will be able to rescue others out of chaos. Do not ask Me to hold back My judgments. I must do what I must do, or the final destruction will be even worse.
GOD IS GOING TO BLESS HIS CHILDREN WITH UNEXPECTED WEALTH
As the gold falls, I will send financial blessing. I will now do something in the banking system to loosen the wealth to My people. The wealth of the Egyptians will be given to the oppressed and the down trodden who have been the “slaves” of the tax collectors.
There will be great investments made by many to build the Ark of the Lord. Use My wealth wisely, for it belongs to the Kingdom of God. Never ever use it to make yourself wealthy. It belongs to the things that are eternal. Touch not the gold nor the Glory.
