'Shields Up!' A Prophetic Warning for America

Several months ago, I began to feel a great unease again about the safety of America. As I prayed, I felt the Lord warning me that there were attacks being planned on America in attempts to strike terror in the heart of the nation. These would be planned on a systematic level and carried out by radicalized persons.

What I saw at the time were the kinds of bombings that occurred in England and Israel at public places. We know that we already dodged a major bullet when one such attempt was averted in New York's Times Square through what I believe to be God-ordained sequence of events.

This is what I am hearing today:

For the Lord says, "Shields up! This is the time for the watchman to have keen eyes and discernment. The enemy is at the door and wants to stir up havoc, but I will give My people eagle eyes to see what is being planned."

After I heard the Lord give this warning and admonition, I received the email below from the Times of Israel that gives details of the kind of attack I had seen (follow the link below to the full news article). Please read it prayerfully. If you are in one of the areas mentioned, perhaps you might want to take a prayer walk and ask the Lord for a strategy to uncover everything being hidden.

Mark 4:22 says, "For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open" (NIV).

As quoted in a recent article from The Times of Israel, "Al-Qaeda Magazine: Strike NY, DC With Car Bombs":

"New issue of 'Inspire' lists specific targets in America, Britain, France—with a bizarre emphasis on tennis matches

"America is al-Qaeda's primary target for car bombs, specifically Washington, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, according to the latest issue of Inspire, a slick online English-language magazine published by the global terrorist organization.

In the section entitled 'Car Bombs inside America,' instructing readers how and where to carry out car bombings, a writer going by the name of 'AQ Chef' writes that 'America is our first target, followed by United Kingdom, France and other Crusader countries.'" 

Thank you for reading and praying!
