It will be an era like none other.
The setting forth of a new and fresh openness to God's supreme
A shaking off of youthful folly and petty “scrapping” over who
imparts the greatest message or anointing.
As the Lord continues to shake out and stir up the dross in the life of
each believer there will be a corresponding stirring again to deep repentance.
Believers will come out of their groggy existence and begin to allow the
deep purging and removal of fleshy perceptions about whom God has blessed
and whom God might use for his glory, and for His purposes.
Instead of well planned out speaking rosters for heavily and slickly
advertised conference invitations, there will continue to be spontaneous
and Divinely orchestrated gatherings throughout all nations.
It has already begun in several unannounced convocations.
It is being lit and ignited by the very hand of a Sovereign
and brilliantly strategic God.
Gatherings large and small, in halls, homes, and barns, have become a
focus of God's heart. He indeed has an agenda. It is to call the bride,
His beloved, the one He lavishly spent all of his life's blood upon,
to rise up from her slumber and be shaken and stirred to see that He is
beckoning her deeper and yet deeper still...
...to enter into a place of profound grace, mercy, and safety.
As the cry of repentance from dead works, and foolish masterminding of
plans and programs that only led the bride into morbid obesity, is stirred in the
hearts of those ailing and sickened by the results of such overindulgence, deeper
and deeper still will the Spirit of God draw his people into a communion of
body, spirit, and soul, with his plan and purpose.
Those that wait upon the Lord in their gatherings, in their brokenness, in
their humility, will begin to experience a hush of holiness falling upon their
gatherings. The hovering presence of the pleasure of God will invade and
permeate the hearts of those who have come simply to fellowship in the
power of His word and the presence of His Holiness.
THE WEIGHT OF HIS GLORY
This is not to be confused with what has been termed “The Anointing”
or “The Holy Spirit Falling Upon God’s People.”
Not a whisper, not a sound, not a song, nor a shout will be needed.
I have been in meetings the past year, while on ministry assignments or
as an attendee where believers who chose to enter into repentance and allowed
the “Dross work” of God to have full access to every
corner of their souls, where without warning or fanfare, weightiness
invaded the room, the conference, or the meeting halls.
It was as if a drenching tangible mass of warmth and comfort wrapped
itself around every human being present.
It mattered not whether they were youthful or stooped over in
the aging of their bodies.
The weight of the very glory and magnificence of the Supreme Being,
The Sovereign One was unmistakable.
Complicit stillness and sweetness flowed into and out of every soul
present. All who were sitting or standing in this weight of glory did not
need anyoneto tell them the phenomenon that transcended man's orchestration
It did not last 5 minutes, 10 minutes, for 15 minutes. It came in waves
and beckoned with the mercy fragrance that only The Still Small Voice can
infuse a room with.
It seems that the more willing the hearts of those in these gatherings who
would simply sit in the weight of this glorious silence, the richer and
deeper the peace became.
And then again, the sweet song of the Lord would begin to sing out over
the people and the people would begin to sing out the sweet song of
repentance and devotion unto the Lord. It transcended ethnic backgrounds,
Deeper and yet deeper still His presence, His glory, His weightiness
In one such meeting the waiting in His glory, in His presence, waiting
upon Him, lasted for 45 minutes. No one wanted to leave, and no one
had any personal formats, styles, preferences or agenda.
“Be still!” the Lord said.
“Be still and know.”
“That I am God!”
HEART WRENCHING REPENTANCE
And turn to God,
So that your sins may be wiped out,
That times of refreshing may come from the Lord."
There have been voices in the body of Christ crying out that she must
repent for her sluggishness, smugness, and presumption.
These voices will be amplified and multiplied throughout the year.
There will be required by the Lord, a setting apart in the heart of every
The call to separate the coarse and dry husks of chaff, suffocating the
grain of their lives, which was meant to be made into the bread of life so
that others may taste of true and sweet communion with the living God.
Deeper and deeper still will the call to shake off slumber, to once and for
all lay down the sins and arrogance that so the easily traps and ensnares
the life of the bride.
The life of each believer will be tested and the dross, the presumption,
and entitlement will be refined away in the lives of those who count
themselves as servants of Christ, not simply fans of Christ.
THE GREATER THE SURRENDER
THE GREATER THE INCREASE OF HIS GLORY
As each member of the body of Christ willingly steps in to the full scan of
the Holy Spirit's convicting radiance, a fresh awakening of the empowering courage
and strength of Christ as the glorious bridegroom will be brought to the forefront.
He will be the central focus and no longer will the bride lag behind in
adolescent drudgery and laziness.
Wave upon wave of adoration will be lifted up as a love sacrifice to the
Beloved One. And the weight of His glory will shake and rock religious agendas
until they crumble and strip off the need for the noise and glitter that has
cluttered and stifled the rightful honor due unto the King of glory.
When with deliberate consideration, the weight of God’s glory is given full
access to flow as it begins to invade and permeate, be prepared for
unbelievers who may be simply walking by a home gathering, a fellowship service, or
a conference, to be drawn into your gatherings as if wooed or summoned
by a fragrance or sound that they have had move them to go and seek out
where it was coming from. The Lord shall draw them and show them of His might,
His presence, and you shall lead them to Him…
… And they shall find salvation.
INSIGHT AND WARNING
Many are indeed standing in a difficult place, not knowing where to turn or
what to do, and will fall headlong into further disaster if they do not awaken
from the hardness of heart and spiritual presumption that have become
companions and corrupt habits.
Today you have heard His heart; you have heard His voice,
Harden not your heart, and instead quickly heed His voice.
Allow the shaking; willingly permit any condescension, elitism, control,
manipulation, cowardly blame shifting, hateful speech, competition,
anger, and vengeful and revengeful thoughts, to be once and for all
purged out of your soul!
Jump headlong into folly,
Fall into the hands of the living breathing God.
“Take care, brethren,
That there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart
That falls away from the living God.”
