“Take heart, out of the current chaos many things are being established and coming into kingdom alignment.”
This is a word that has been burning in my spirit over the last few weeks and I really felt to share what the Lord has been revealing to me.
A Great Shaking
I sense that a “GREAT SHAKING” is taking place throughout the earth. There are always “shakings” taking place in different nations at different times, but it currently feels as if all the nations of the world are being shaken to their core. I believe that everything that can be shaken, will be shaken!
At the time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken – that is, created things – so that what cannot be shaken may remain.
[Hebrews 12: 26-27 NIV]
The Holy Spirit has been showing me that a great unveiling is breaking forth throughout the earth and what has been concealed will spill out and be EXPOSED for all to see. The secret agenda’s and volts of information that has been kept concealed for personal gain by the systems (political, financial, religious, media, medical etc.) of the world will be revealed. Currently, an attempt is being made to keep these secrets locked up and hidden from plain sight but it will find some way of escaping and it will literally be like opening up pandora’s box. Once opened there will be no way to shut it or hide it, as it will continuously flow forth.
They know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
[Psalm 82:5 NIV]
I see that the hidden things that will be exposed will lay like oil on top of the water which will be visible for all to see. These things will not be able to sink down to the bottom of the ocean floor as that will cause them to remain hidden. It will also not mix with the water as that means it will be diluted and filtered out making it hard to spot but rather, there will be great transparency of “TRUTH” in full view.
The Shaking Of The Church
This very shaking, will also not bypass the church. God is actively cleaning up His beautiful garden of the body of Christ. There is a great cleaning up and clearing out happening as the debris needs to be removed. There is also much pruning and cutting away of the sinful things which come to separate us from God, as the Lord is looking for a body of believers whose root systems go deep. Shallow root systems will be easily eroded by the storms of this life but those whose root systems are deeply rooted will be able to weather the storms.
I see many church leaders and people in authority being shaken. There are many standing on pulpits and preaching the gospel but their hearts are not fully aligned to a Holy God. God is raising up leaders who are a true representation of who HE is and who do not seek money and prestige as their first love but are rather in full pursuit of truly loving Jesus and walking out their mandate of loving those around them.
This current shaking is leading us into a great unveiling, which in turn will lead us to a greater level of purification. Many things are being shaken out to make room for what God wants to do in His body, the church.
Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
[2 Corinthians 7:1 NIV]
Golden Purified Vessels
As believers our earthly bodies can be likened to “vessels” and we are called to be like golden vessels of honour that carry the glory of God and impart it to those around us. As we pursue God with our whole heart we will be transformed into His image. Prophetically I sense that we are in a season where God is purifying His body as a little bit of contamination can defile the whole body.
- Many vessels are being shaped and moulded in this hour as there are holes that are causing the contents of our vessels to leak out and in addition to that, these same holes are also giving the enemy an access point to steal from us. God is actively restoring and healing “holes” in our vessels so we can fully hold all that He has for us.
- God is securing our vessels so that they are stable and not lopsided in any way. He is ensuring that they do not topple over at the first sign of any winds that comes along to destabilize and blow them over.
- God is girding our vessels in TRUTH, as the word says that truth will set us free. When we are rooted in the truth it is also easier to recognize the counterfeit as there are many things masquerading as truth in this hour but it is not the truth.
- God is replenishing our vessels supernaturally, as many have been feeling as if their vessels are empty.
In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.
[2 Timothy 2: 20-21 NIV]
Fire Of Purification
Throughout the Bible, the Holy Spirit encountered believers as a manifestation of fire. Some examples are Moses and the burning bush, the pillar of fire by night that led the way for the Israelites in the desert and in the book of Acts, the tongues of fire that rested upon those in the upper room.
I believe that it is a season whereby we are about to experience the Holy Spirit encountering the world as a purifying and cleansing fire. It will be a fire that comes to sweep through and remove all that is profane, impure and vile. God is in the process of cleaning up His church as lukewarm Christianity and mixture are being eliminated to make room for the new thing that God wants to do! In ancient times, precious metals were purified by placing them in a furnace until they reached a fluid state. Then the refining process would begin whereby the impurities of the metal would begin to rise to the surface, due to the high heat levels. These impurities are removed and the process continues until the metal is pure and it reflects an image on its surface. The fire comes to purify, the fire comes to sanctify, the fire comes to make Holy. Whatever is forged in the seasons of fire, is never lost but perfectly established and transformed.
O Lord, we have passed through your fire; like precious metal made pure, you’ve proved us, perfected us and made us holy.
[Psalm 66:10 TPT]
It is an hour to REPENT and get right with God as the hidden sins in our own lives are being uncovered and dealt with, in order that we can walk in a greater level of purity. It is an hour whereby we have to guard what we allow through our eyes, ears and heart gates as this really does matter as the enemy is always looking for an access point into our lives. God is coming as the purifier as He is wanting us to have clean hands and a pure heart so that we can see Jesus rightly. I feel to encourage believers today that God does not want us to fear what is currently manifesting – I wrote a short blog post recently on “faith over fear” – but rather, put our hope and trust in a God who will not fail to show up as a faithful deliverer in our time of need. Divine order and kingdom alignment is arising out of the chaos as well as a Holiness Movement, those who seek Jesus in spirit and truth.
But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
[1 Peter 15-16 NIV]
Dear Lord Jesus, in the midst of all the shaking that is taking place, I pray that I will be found securely rooted in you. My prayer is that you will establish me in your truths and that I will be a vessel of honour that carries your glory.
I repent where I have not had clean hands and a pure heart, which has prevented me from seeing you rightly Jesus. I also give you permission to allow your fire of purification to eliminate anything from my life that is causing defilement and unholiness as I long to walk in holiness with you Jesus. Amen
