A Prophetic Word From Hilda

Prophetess hilda arredondo


In September 2002 I released this Prophetic Message in my newsletter to the body of Christ. Saints of God I pray you read every word. America is "shaking" we are facing the dark clouds of the "Economic Storms" that are now upon us. Here at the National Divine Connection we continue to pray for our Nation's Revival, Those in Authority, the Church and its Saints--so let us press forward to pray for our country and each other like never before.


There were basically two kinds of trumpets in Israel; trumpets made of ram’s horns and trumpets of silver.  Now, Moses was instructed to make two silver trumpets, which were used for the various callings of Israel.  “And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them:  that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps.”  Numbers 10:1-2.  These twin silver trumpets when blown would alert or announce to the camps what season they were approaching.  The Almighty God was calling and they were expected to respond to the trumpet sound.  There were nine (9) distinct trumpet sounds:  one was for the calling of the assemblies, the journeying of the camps, the calling of the leaders, for war or enemy oppression, announcing a new year, the solemn assemblies, the offerings and sacrifices, and the days of gladness (festivals).  As Israel heard the trumpet sound recognizing the specific note; they quickly responded, obeyed, and then immediately prepared for their instructions.  Just as Israel recognized the Lord’s beckoning call at that particular time in history and quickly responded, today, we are also called to recognize and quickly respond to the spiritual trumpet of the hour!


What is the 2002 spiritual trumpet sound to the body of Christ as we quickly approach the fall festivals this September which announce the closing off of an old year and the coming of a new spiritual year?  What should our response be?  The upcoming trumpet sound in 2002 must be discerned as we key into the Spirit of the Living God on what He will speak.  As the sacred shofar is lifted up and put to the trumpeter’s lips and blown, God in Heaven will again speak to Israel, but not only to them, but also to America and us (church), the engrafted branch into the olive tree. 
In Numbers 10:10, it reads, “Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings;  that they may be to you for a memorial before your God:  I am the Lord your God.”  The trumpet sound being blown to us announces “…the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days…”  The days of gladness were referring to the festivals of God that Israel was instructed to celebrate without fail every year!  There were seven feasts making up three (3) major festivals for Israel.  God was the host of these “Divine Appointments” and Israel was the guest.  People today refer to them as the Jewish festivals; rather, they were the festivals of God.  They went in this order:    

1) The Feast of Passover, in the beginning of the year which comes in our March and April or the month “Abib” also known as the month of Nisan.
2) The Feast of Pentecost, which came in the middle of the year, fifty days after Passover (our June and July) or the third month from the beginning of their sacred year.  Then after Pentecost, there was a “three (3) month dry spell (no rain)”.
3) Finally, the Fall Feast of the year came during the month of Tishri (our September and October) known as the Feast of Tabernacles, Feast of Ingathering or Booths.


Israel would experience three (3) “high peak harvest seasons” every year.  Those “High Peak Harvest Seasons” came three (3) times a year at each of the three (3) major festival seasons. Passover brought in the Barley Harvest, Pentecost brought in the Wheat Harvest, and the Feast of Tabernacles brought in the Fruit Harvest at the end of the year.  Many of us have heard Christians say that the church is going to experience a great harvest in these last days and this is so true!  But many do not have the understanding of “why” this big harvest of revival and souls is coming.  The Harvest Festival or Feast of Tabernacles was always celebrated at the end of the year; therefore, this “Big Harvest” that many Christians are talking about is coming at the end of the age because Tabernacles is the last feast of the year to be celebrated!  The church as a whole has celebrated Passover and Pentecost, but not Tabernacles.  As a body we must remember that before we can celebrate Tabernacles, this great harvest feast, we must first pass through the celebration of the Feast of Trumpets, then into the Day of Atonement followed by Tabernacles which brings the fruit harvest. 
Church, these feasts, when understood and celebrated are the spiritual moves of God individually and collectively.  Every festival brought a new glory and the Word of God says we go from “Glory to Glory” or we go from “Feast to Feast”!  All Christians (unaware) are celebrating these festivals and can be compared to the “Growth Levels of the church”.  Every Christian when they are born-again celebrated the Passover Lamb Jesus Christ.  In the beginning of the age of Christianity we celebrated Passover which is equivalent to our “Salvation Experience” which brought the water baptism.  Men like Martin Luther and John Wesley found this feast and led people out of the Dark Age doctrines into His marvelous light of the salvation festival.   
Then Pentecost was discovered which brought the baptism of the Holy Spirit.  Now, at the end of the year or the end of the church age, we are being called to come to the Feast of Tabernacles which is the Harvest Festival.  A wonderful celebration is among the many good things it brings and also the “Baptism of Fire”.  What’s more exciting is that we celebrate the spiritual side of these feasts on a yearly basis as Christians.  We receive rewards of blessings at the peak seasons of the festivals.  But many of us have not been taught about the feasts simply because it was not for yesterday, but rather for the hour upon us!  I have studied, lived, and celebrated the Feast of the Lord for nineteen (19) years.  Later, God drew a people unto the ministry who the Lord had me teach and instruct on how to celebrate these feasts.  It is such an “Awesome Experience" to see every year the three (3) “High Peak Spiritual Harvest Seasons” at these annual celebrations.


Every year, what you have planted during the year will reap you a harvest spiritually, physically, mentally, and financially.  This happens three (3) times a year. As a watchman, I have observed and celebrated the spiritual feast, closely watching the seasons of the three (3) harvests.  And sure enough you will either sell an item that‘s been sitting for a while, settle on some inheritance or insurance situation(s), or receive a promotion on the job, via a raise or bonus.  Somehow, the Lord makes sure that you are blessed to receive some extra money – the financial harvest for us as Christians is evident yearly.  Today, most of us are not farmers as the nation of Israel, but planting into the kingdom of God financially is so necessary to receive a harvest at these “high peak spiritual seasons”.  Remember, Paul said in II Corinthians 9:6 as I paraphrase, he that soweth sparingly will also reap sparingly and he that soweth bountifully will also reap bountifully.  This is also the season of the wake-up call to the unregenerate (the lost).  This season can bring true revival with many souls coming to the Lord during this festival.  This fall will move us into the celebration of the yearly Feast of Tabernacles, which begins September 7th with the Feast of Trumpets announcing the Great Day of Atonement that takes us to September 17, 2002.  God would ask the people to rest five (5) days, then begin the celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles or Booths (also known as Succoth) which lasts 7 days, finishing on September 29, 2002.  The awesome God always spoke very profoundly during the Fall Feasts to Israel beginning with the Feast of Trumpets.  Over the years, I’ve learned that He not only speaks to Israel, but He speaks to me spiritually on an individual basis, to the church collectively, and to our nation!


The great shofar was blown on the Feast of Trumpets and Israel’s ears were open to the sound of the trumpet.  When the shofar was blown it announced the season of blessing and the season of judgment approaching.  It was called “Rosh Hashanah” which means the head or the beginning of the new year.   Let those who have ears to hear, hear what the spirit of the Lord is saying.  The trumpet announced a season of repentance for the nation (Day of Atonement).  If there was no repentance for the nation during this season, they could expect only one thing – JUDGMENT.  It was during this feast that the high priest of Israel went into the Holy of Holies to make atonement for the sins of the nation.  Once a year, he would sprinkle the Ark of the Covenant with the blood of bulls, calves, and goats with the hope to be forgiven and blessed.  
Last year the spiritual Feast of Trumpets fell on Tuesday, September 18, 2001, one (1) week to the day after September 11, 9/11.  This was the same season of the fall feast when the heavenly shofar was blown announcing the FEASTS OF TRUMPETS, and divine bookkeeping records were opened, then God would pass out rewards of blessings to the righteous and rewards of judgment to the wicked.  What was our nation’s reward? – America received the rewards of the “9/11 judgment” right on the eve of the New Year season.  On that very day the twin towers in New York City which are located in the middle of her financial district were brought down and many Americans were killed through terrorist attack slaughter.  Never in America’s 200 year history has she ever received such a blow to her home shores and lived in so much turmoil and terror since 9/11. On that day, Americans were awakened to sudden destruction; a terrorist era was unleashed upon the land of the brave and free! Our safety and peace were gone.  For a full year now America has lived in terror, warning, and alerts with no sure plan of safety.  The two (2) twin towers were considered double judgment to the wicked.  The sins of America had reached the God of Heaven – He is the Lord God of Judgment – the Lord who smites.  The Feast of Trumpets announced the closing off of an old year and the coming in of a New Year and also announced the upcoming ten (10) Awesome Days of Yom Kippur, the year’s highest holy day of repentance for the nation and a day of fasting and solemn assembly.


It is the season of God’s divine bookkeeping.  God’s people believed that three (3) books were opened in heaven during the beginning of the fall feast.  One book was for the “Righteous” (today born-again believers) and they immediately, if they were sincere in their walk with God, received rewards of health, life, peace, security, and prosperity.  In John 10:10 Jesus said, “…I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”  On the other hand, the evil and wicked people whose names were found written in the book of the “Wicked” immediately received judgment.  They received destruction instead of life, hurt instead of health, poverty instead of prosperity or riches, terror and insecurity instead of peace and security.  Those that were neither totally righteous nor totally wicked (today we call them lukewarm Christians) were given ten (10) days known as the awesome days to search their hearts for sin and repent.  During this season, everyone gave themselves to the “searching of hearts”.  Depending on the sincerity of their repentance, these intermediate or lukewarm people, on that fearsome day Yom Kippur (Feast of Redemption) were judged and written either in the Book of the Righteous or the Book of the Wicked.  God gave them ten (10) days – a time to repent.  They had the choice either to have their name written with the wicked for destruction, hurt, poverty, terror and insecurity, or with the righteous for life, health, prosperity, peace, and security.  What a merciful God we serve!  It was so important they obey God and celebrate the Day of Atonement (redemption) because on that great day of Yom Kippur they believed that the gates of heaven were closed and their blessing or judgment was sealed for the New Year.  In other words the entire new year would be one of blessing or judgment.


Now, as we look back to the Feast of Trumpets which was celebrated last fall (2001), the trumpet sound of the “9/11 Terrorist Attack” to the wicked of America was “Judgment”.  And when true repentance (turning away from wrong) didn’t come to this nation after that terrorist attack, the gates of heaven were closed for the year on “Continued Judgment” and since then America has lived a year of terror, fear, and no safety.  In July of this year 2002, seven (7) months after the 9-11 terrorist attack, America still showed no real signs of repentance.   
The Holy Spirit spoke to me, “Yes, there has been a lot of lip service, but Americans continue to fornicate, commit adultery, get drunk, and pass laws that approve sodomy as an acceptable lifestyle in America; corrupting the young with pornography and shedding innocent blood through abortion.  They continue to break covenant with me, so then judgment shall be their lot.”  Church, all we have to do is look around, see, and hear what is happening to our nation.


This past summer was known as the Summer of Abductions – little children abducted and later murdered.  “The Crime Wave Judgment” has escalated in America to a higher degree.  In the October 2001 Newsletter, titled the 911 Judgments upon America, I prophesied about a New Year demon invasion.  It read like this, “Yes, Church, America has begun a new spiritual year.  God by the Holy Spirit has spoken to my heart that there are two (2) more serious judgment “woes” coming upon America unless she repents.  One (1) is a demon invasion led by Apollyon, known as Abadon, unleashing myriads of demons who will invade our young who have been emptied of God.  This invasion will put this nation on a course of murders, violence, and bloodshed like never before!  This will be another 9/11 judgment.  “And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abadon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”  Revelation 9:11.  It is no accident that evil demons are spoken of in Revelations 9:11.  This demon invasion will be the most horrendous invasion and wave of uncleanness coming through television, internet pornography and vile murders, for no apparent reason other than to quench a blood thirsty generation.
Now, here we are again approaching the Feast of Trumpets that falls on September 7th 2002.  What will the new spiritual year of the Lord bring in for us as individuals, as a church, and a nation?  How will America fare on God’s divine bookkeeping for the past year?  Still, in His mercy the Lord gave our nation from September 2001 – September 2002, time to again repent and turn away from her wickedness before He sends something worse to us.  Has she repented?  No, she hasn’t and the trumpet of the Lord is getting ready to sound again.  The prophet Jeremiah said, “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved”


Now, what can the righteous expect this coming year?  In II Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:  old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”  This is the season of doubles, not only double blessing to the righteous but double judgment to the wicked.  All true born-again believers walking uprightly will receive life instead of destruction, health instead of hurt, riches and prosperity instead of poverty, and peace and security instead of terror and insecurity.  A thousand shall fall at your side and ten thousand at our right hand and nothing shall come nigh you, but church listen to this, “Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the REWARD of the wicked” (Psalm 91:8). But those who insisted on living wicked lives from last year to this year will only face the “Smiter” whose judgment is in His hand, and the lukewarm church that remains in that condition will be spewed out of His mouth.


Another judgment trumpet “woe” will be to our nation’s money system.  We are facing the stormy dark clouds of an economic collapse that will throw us into a financial holocaust or depression short of repentance. For the past year, I have watched Wall Street reports go up so many points and then come down so many points – up and down, up and down.  The Holy Spirit said to me recently that He was going to show me the “Pulse” of our nation’s economy (money market).  The pulse is the regular beating of the arteries caused by contractions of the heart.  As I watched the pulsating of the money market in America, just as a dying man’s pulse goes up and down affecting the fluctuations of the blood pressure till finally it drops lower and lower till he is gone – America’s economy is doing the same.  To pulsate means a variation characterized by a rise or a decline.  Wall Street is the heart of the money market and we are seeing the rise and decline of the pulsations of a dying economy gasping for her last breaths.  If this continues many of us will live to see the day that the dollar dies in America. 
As the Holy Spirit continued to speak to me He reminded me that the wealth of this nation came from Him.  Many Americans and Christians have the mindset of, “My power and the might of my hand hath gotten me this wealth”.  America has forgotten that it is God that giveth her power to get wealth. “If she doesn’t repent and turn back to me, one of these days soon she (Wall Street) will drop so low and not have the strength to come back up and die causing an economic collapse.  For I will judge a society who forgets me and thinks that her wealth is her doings.  This is my way of bringing proud rebellious nations to their knees.”  Church, some of our worst economic “woes” have come at the time of the Fall Feast.  The great depression of 1929 came in the fall season.  In the fall of 1987 Wall Street hit an all time low.


Just as Edom was prideful and was brought down, Americans have also become prideful, “The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?  Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the Lord.”  Obadiah 1:3-4.  God spoke this of Edom and today He speaks the same of America or any nation that lifts itself above God.  What is our position as the church to avert these judgments upon our nation?  What are the near coming judgments?  A financial woe to our economy, the escalated crime wave to a nation who no longer lives under the protection umbrella of God, but rather turned over to terrorist judgment, robbed of her peace and safety.  The beginning of great shakings are coming soon; we will see earthquakes, natural disasters, etc. like never before.


What can we do?  First of all, take the fall feast seriously.  Secondarily, follow the feast and celebrate it by moving our churches into repentance for that ten (10) day period ending with a solemn assembly with the hope that our God would hear from heaven, forgive our sin, and heal our land.  After that season of repentance (10 Days of Atonement) depending on Israel’s sincerity, God would send them the rains.  The rains were a must – without the rains Israel might as well be dead!  The rains were a sign from heaven to them that God has heard their prayers of repentance.  Now they could look forward to a good year full of life, health, joy, peace, and prosperity.  Beloved, who knows that after we stand in the gap, pray, and repent on behalf of our own hearts, then our households and the nation, then perhaps God will send us the spiritual rains of true revival giving us another good year full of His grace and mercy.  We, as Christians have a spiritual 911.  As I shared earlier that during the Days of Atonement the high priest would go into the Holy of Holies once a year and make atonement for the sins of the people and sins of the nation.  When God accepted their blood sacrifices and repentance, then He would give them ONE MORE GOOD YEAR!  Our 911 is Hebrews 9:11.  AND IT READS LIKE THIS, “But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.  For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:  How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”  Let us call on our Blessed Redeemer, the High Priest, to make holy intercession for us as we come boldly before the throne of grace to ask for help and obtain mercy in our time of need.  Perhaps, if our repentance is truly sincere, then our nation will be spared the upcoming woes of judgment.  To God be the Glory!
