A Changed North America
As the angel pointed in front of me a wide view of land and water opened
up, so that at first I thought I was seeing two countries. Instantly it was
made known to me that I as looking at a vastly changed portion of North
America, which was completely divided by a large body of water, and which had
lost a large part of both eastern and western shorelines. As I saw this I was
given a total understanding of the natural and man-made disasters that would
need to occur to make these changes, and I was informed that these might or
might not come to pas according to our choices as a people -- according to my
choices as an individual.
In this scenario icebergs and polar icecaps were melting. Earthquakes had
occurred and there had been hurricanes and fierce storms -- the whole country
had been ravaged by these things. I could also see massive fires burning here
and there -- not so much the flames as the smoke that was ascending toward me
-- as huge areas of the country seemed to be being burned. There were also
explosions in some areas, sort of like sheet lightning in a dark sky, that
were doing great damage.
Where Washington and Oregon had been there were mostly islands, the water
coming inland over most of California and Arizona and parts of Utah and
Nevada. Yet there were also islands there, massive ones, so it wasn't like it
was all ocean....
On the East Coast I saw that much of the eastern seaboard was gone, though
the water did not come so far inland as it did on the West Coast. I was also
aware that the southern half of Florida was under water.
I don't remember seeing anything like Central America or South America, for
water surrounded what I was seeing, and I didn't really focus on what was
beyond that water. Yet at the same time, I had the understanding that the
waters had risen around the entire earth, and that everything had changed to
one degree or another.
Two Separate Countries
The area of water in the middle of . . . the United States was massive, and
was widest or most extensive in the north. There were no Great Lakes as I had
known them, for all of them had come together into this huge sea that extended
northeastward into the ocean. The inland sea also extended southward, filling
most of the Mississippi an Missouri River valleys and widening by many, many
miles the Mississippi River where it flows into what we know as the Gulf of
Mexico. This sea was so vast that I knew it could not be bridged, and so in
essence the United States had become as two separate countries.
A New Seat of Power
I was also aware that the seat of power, or patriotism, had moved away from
Washington, D.C. There was so much turmoil and warfare on the eastern side of
this body of water that no authority really existed there. I understood then
that in the scenario I was being shown, our country had come to the very edge
of destruction -- to the brink of losing everything, because myself and hosts
of others like me had chosen to seek worldly things rather than loving or
Additionally, we had refused to care for our precious natural resources.
Because of our greed and selfishness our national government had lost most of
its power, and could no longer completely govern or control. National laws
were ignored, and there was no true nationwide governmental infrastructure
left. What government there was seemed to be territorial, sort of like large
tribes or groups of people who had banded together.
And I saw that because of the ramifications of these day-to-day choices the
people, especially on the eastern side of this new body of water, lived in
great danger and fear. There was tremendous anarchy and crime -- sort of
like the Los Angeles riots spread nationwide. And the normal citizens kept
themselves hidden away from all this, barricading themselves into their homes
or wherever they had gathered together for security. many children didn't go
to school, commerce as we know it had pretty much ceased, many people were
starving to death, there was terrible violence from people who seemed like
roving gangs -- it was just an awful scene of confusion and turmoil.
Yet in this scenario there was less of that turmoil on the western portion of
our country. There was even a certain amount of prosperity, and it was there
that I could see the new seat of power, if that is what it could be called.
This area, or city or whatever, while on the eastern edge or shore line of the
western portion of land, was located in almost the exact center of the
combination of both halves of the country. Later when I looked at a map of the
United States, I realized that it would have been very near present-day Kansas
From this location I could see power radiating outward, almost like light
flowing out to strengthen and stabilize other areas. This power was what I
called patriotism or strong moral character or spirituality -- a true
spiritual force that was the only real governing power over the whole land.
This is why I called that area the seat of power.
But I must state this power was totally spiritual -- a true power of spirit
such as the angel beside me was exhibiting, or that I had felt emanating from
Christ while I had been in His presence.
The Native Americans
I also sensed that some of the Indians -- the Native Americans -- were
partially responsible for the peacefulness that was on the western side of
this water. Some of these Native American peoples had a knowledge of how
to live from the land, or how to be in harmony with it so it would bring forth
in abundance according to their needs. They were teaching this spiritual
knowledge to the people around them, and all the people were starting to learn
to live in harmony with each other. At the same time they were beginning
again to prosper by becoming harmonious with nature, or the natural elements
upon which they depended.
