To my mind these prophetic 'words' clearly support each other. The Lord quickened a scripture from Jeremiah and gave me to understand that it expressed his heart and intention toward America as he brings this judgment on us.
Jeremiah 30: 10. Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make [him] afraid.
11. For I [am] with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.
My understanding of this is that the coming judgment is a chastisement. That the Lord will "not make a full end of" America but "will correct ... in measure, and will not leave ... unpunished."
He also gave part of Isaiah 48, later.
3 I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I showed them; I did [them] suddenly, and they came to pass.
5 I have even from the beginning declared [it] to thee; before it came to pass I showed [it] thee:
9. For my name's sake will I defer mine anger, and for my praise will I refrain for thee, that I cut thee not off.
10 Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.
20 Go ye forth of Babylon, flee ye from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare ye, tell this, utter it [even] to the end of the earth; say ye, The LORD hath redeemed his servant Jacob.
Another scripture the Lord gave me regarding this situation is Jeremiah 50.2.
Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, [and] conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces.
The words "PUBLISH, AND CONCEAL NOT" are the Lords instructions for what he has shown me. PERSONAL CONFIRMATION
One of the signs that you have begun to really believe something, is when you begin to base your reasoning on it. I found myself thinking about these prophecies and speculating on what the situation would be like in America, if or rather when they came to pass.
The Lord show me in quick succession one week that these visions were of him. He showed me our vulnerability to invasion. And our vulnerability to sneak attack.
I am employed as a two way radio technician in the rural area just up river from New Orleans. I have a wide variety of dealings with business, industrial and governmental clients.
One of our regular customers is the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in St. James Parish. This agency is under the US Department of Energy. Their mission is to purchase and store vast quantities of crude oil as a strategic reserve, in case we were once again cut off from foreign imports.
One day while I was there I got to see a map of the locations of the underground storage depots for the crude oil . All but two are right on the Gulf Coast. The other 2 slightly inland in Louisiana.
Being something of a military buff, (I once had a lifetime subscription to Strategy & Tactics Magazine) it struck me that the crude oil reserves we supposedly depend upon are extremely vulnerable to capture by invading forces, being so close to the seacoast. That same day I got hold of a petroleum resource catalog. This showed books and maps available of our oil and natural gas pipeline and distribution network. Most of it comes up through Texas and Louisiana, to be distributed to the northern cities. Again strategically vulnerable to capture.
Invading forces that were after our agricultural lands could have extra effect by invading the south. They would want to capture the port of New Orleans. This gives them access to ship docking and stevedoring facilities. Plus all the major grain elevators we use to export our products to feed the world. They would want to move up the Mississippi River to the heart of America's farmlands. And in doing so, they could also cut off all the oil & gas pipelines. This would deprive the remaining northern cities of a major source of energy.
This seemed to reinforce the implications of Brother Anonymous's vision of the horse and buggies, and very few cars. And The strange looking wagons. All of that would result from a severe shortage of oil.
The very next day, my work took me to a local civil defense headquarters. My assignment there was just to assist technicians on the other end of a circuit. So I had a bit of time to kill waiting for them to do something on their end. The room I was working in had many dozens of books and manuals on the shelves. A certain curiosity got hold of me, a Spirit led curiosity as it turned out. The first manual I looked into was a collection of materials from an emergency preparedness course.
I read a fascinating account of lessons learned from WWII. How the British coped with having to evacuate London during the Blitz. It dealt with how they moved families into the villages and country side and doubled them up with other families, two to a home. How would you like a second family to move in with you for several years?

This is common knowledge that disaster is everywhere. Its in the streets, its inside your campuses, and it can even be found inside your home. The question is not whether we are safe because no one is really THAT secure anymore but whether we can do something to lessen the odds of ever becoming a victim.
