"Why are My people so afraid that My peace cannot quiet their fears?
Is their peace in Me, or is it in their prosperity
and in their physical freedom from 'enemies'?
Who has the power to wash away what is founded on the rock?
"My church in America has founded itself on the sands of
physical freedom, economic abundance, military solutions and political power.
When these seem to be threatened by real or imaginary waves,
they become distressed because they know their house is founded on sand.
"Come, My frightened children! Let go of your foundation!
You have been tossed to and fro by the mere idea of rising waves!
Come to My foundation instead, and you will find rest for your souls
and a peace that passes all understanding."
