I am so excited to share this word that I feel the Lord has given me for this time. I want to be careful to not add any of my own thoughts and words to this so I am going to just jump right to it.
There is a shaking taking place right now. All throughout scripture we see that what the enemy intends for evil the Lord turns for the good of those who love Him. This shaking is a sifting, separating the light from the darkness. This is not a division but a gathering of those who are set apart of God and His light. This is a good thing! Those that love the Lord and have been reborn in His likeness and into His bloodline are being called out. A change is coming to the modern day church as we know it. A new church is being raised up. A church that is sold out to God and the spreading of the gospel. The days of the seeker friendly, Sunday morning only church is over. God is bringing a unity and oneness among His people. The same unity that the disciples had in Acts 1:13 and 14. This unity led them into prayer and supplication with one accord and then the Spirit of power came on them. Just as in that time, God is raising up new preachers and teachers who are going to speak the truth in love and boldness, followed by the confirmation of power through signs and wonders. Those in unity are going to go out in the power of the Spirit and spread the gospel as seed sown in the fields. The body is being awakened and the truth is being made known. The plans of the enemy are being exposed.
This oneness and love are connected. It is a fulfillment of the covenant. John 13:34, "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." This is not a new message that God is sending but it will be new to many. This is the message that the church is to take by example to the ends of the earth, that God is love. He loves the people of this earth and desires for them to know, love and choose Him.
In this shaking He is exposing pride, the blatantly and disdainfully proud heart, those who have an attitude of superiority and contempt for people and the things that the Lord is working. Those who's feet run to evil and are walking in darkness, who trample on the holy and are ruled by the power of the flesh rather than the power of the Holy Spirit. Proverbs 6:16-19 says, "These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood (this includes abortion), A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are quick in running to evil, A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among the brethren." These God is sifting out from among His light.
For those who love Him there is a protection and fruitfulness in this time. Even a transfer of wealth from those who walk in darkness to those who are walking in the calling and light of God. Though we are in this world we are not of this world and for those who choose to be born again into His bloodline He has already overcome the things of this world. You are to walk in the light. For those who love Him the Word and the Spirit fill and empower them to go forth and declare God's authority and bring in the harvest. You have been anointed by the blood of the lamb and filled with the Spirit. Set your focus on God and be in prayer. Through this anointing and prayer God's authority, gifts, callings, favor, direction, purpose and will are defined.
This time of shaking for the church is a time of joy and not of fear. There is a special feast and day of remembrance coming up, Passover. As the Israelites anointed their door posts with the blood of the lamb so that the spirit of death would passover them, understand that you have been anointed with the blood of the Lamb (Jesus) so that all sickness and disease (the spirit of death) will passover you. Put off all fear and wickedness among you and be of good cheer sisters and brothers for this is an Ester moment. A moment in time for which you were purposed and called into. Be not as the world is but as your Father is!
