    America Is About To See A ‘Crisis Situation!’

    A PROPHETIC SERVANT IS CALLED TO WARN THE PEOPLE OF WHAT IS COMING! Read: Ezekiel 3:16-19-Ezekiel Is a Watchman. Amos 3:7-8- When the Lord GOD decides to do something, he will first tell his servants, the prophets. 8 When a lion roars, people are frightened. When the Lord GOD speaks, a prophet must prophesy.

    7-23-19 at 5:45 am I heard the Holy Spirit say to me, “America Is About To See A Crisis Situation!” That is why you are going through what you have been going through. I am teaching you how to handle a Crisis Situation! Be not afraid for I the Lord am with you. I am right there beside you helping you every step of the way. I haven’t walked away. I am there I hear the Lord say. I am backing away daughter to see what you are going to do.

    DO NOT PANIC! TRUST ME!

    All is well. I have everything in the palm of my hands. Tell the people, DO NOT WORRY OR BE FRIGHTENED! Children it is time you look to me for help. The world will not help you. Children you must now call upon me to strengthen and guide you in your everyday lives. Call upon me to rescue you from all trouble. I will be with you in your midnight hour when no one else is there. I the Lord will never leave you or forsake you. Children I am with you for all eternity. You belong to ME. I King Jesus bought you at a price. No one can snatch you from ME. The evil one which is satan keeps trying to snatch MY chosen ones. He will not be able to. They are sealed in ME. I have called them by name and they are mine, says the Lord. For the Lord has spoken.

    Isaiah 43:1

    PRESIDENT TRUMP'S ELECTION STOPPED THE PLANNED DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA AND THE WORLD. It has been found that Obama planned to dismember America during his 8-years, which he did. And the Plan was to have Clinton finish America in her next 8 years. OBAMA'S ISLAMIST CABAL IN HIS WHITE HOUSE: LEVIED WAR AGAINST THE UNITED STATES AND ADHERED TO ITS ENEMIES BY GIVING THEM AID AND COMFORT. THE MEDIA IS INCLUDED IN THAT STATEMENT. OBAMA ALLOWED OUR MILITARY to be Destroyed to a non-functioning level. Obama allowed steel of subpar quality to be used in our country for all kinds of things, including military equipment. Democrats and their allies betrayed their allegiance to America, it's people and created the Russian collusion lie to fit their plan for a total takeover of America. They were so close, they could taste the total destruction of the country they hate.

    Things you'll never hear anybody say:
    Let's bring in millions of non-Blacks into EVERY Black country until Blacks become a minority.
    Let's give non-Blacks affirmative action and free health care in EVERY Black country.
    Let's promote diversity and assimilation in the media in EVERY Black country.
    Let's call any Black person who objects to any of this "racist."
    You'll never hear anyone say that!
    People only say that about WHITE people in WHITE countries.
    Diversity is a codeword for White genocide.
    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

    It's about time that the US ARMED FORCES showed the world once again…that they are the greatest. By building up the firepower of the US ARMED FORCES
    specially it's NUCLEAR ARSENALS to the highest level…that
    no other country will even try to
    challenge the might of the US ARMED FORCES. I truly believe the President of the RICHEST country in the world and the Commander in Chief of the most POWERFUL armed forces in the Universe Donald J Trump…will
    always Put America First among all nations on the face of the earth…by making sure that the US ARMED FORCES had the best military equipment and the most LETHAL THERMO NUCLEAR ARSENALS the world had ever known…that is SECOND to NONE. Simply because….TRUMP
    knew that the other country like RED CHINA and RUSSIA will only RESPECT the UNITED STATES if they knew that they cannot MATCH the superior NUCLEAR
    capability and strength that will HIT them if they foolishly SCREW the great UNCLE SAM. Yes…they will certainly show RESPECT to the United States…because it has a leader who is not a traditional POLITICIAN and who will not hesitate to go NUCLEAR on them
    because TRUMP will always FIGHT to WIN.

    People think trump clean the deep state swamp, i give you shocker news. trump is the swamp. Why he keep hiring Globalists and Neo israelis around himself. he is all mouth and no action. Deep state not only tortured trump america for past 2 years and the people voted for him , the real patriotic americans. I do not think there is anyone in american politics that can go against deep state zionists. they are even scared to say epstein name. I wonder mossad had jeff sessions with young boys…seems like he was a pussy.
