Unusual Season of Changes
We are in an unusual season right now where God is supernaturally accelerating all things. As we are drawing near to Rosh Hashannah and to the new Hebrew year 5782, God is getting ready to close doors and to open up new doors of chosen destinies.
Great Exposure and Cleansing
There has been a great shaking of the occult, pedophilia, witchcraft lies, the deep state and of the falsity of the church. God is judging His house and is purifying His bride.
The Lord is testing and cleansing His people from any pride, flesh and the things of the world as He is wanting to promote the Daniels and the Shadrachs, Meshachs and Abednegos of this land.
Watch and Pray
"Watch and pray that you enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak" (Matt. 26:41).
Many will be falling and many unlikely things will be happening. We are in a season of unusual things taking place.
The most unlikely people you thought of will fail you, and the Lord will pair you and partner you up with the most unlikely of people.
We are in a season where God is lifting up the humble and pulling down the proud.
"But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise. God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty" (1 Cor. 1:27).
This is so that we would not trust in our own gifting, thoughts and intuitions but that we would truly lean into the Lord and trust His ways only.
The Remnant Is Rising
As the old generals and fathers are passing onto glory and as some are falling into sin and failure, there is a new generation of voices rising.
And some of these fire brands are some of the most unusual, unlikely of people who God is allowing to rise up in the ranks of society.
We are seeing this take place in politics. Some of the most unlikely of people are now running for Congress in many different counties and states.
We are seeing new voices of influence rise up in social justice and reform, media and arts, science and health, and politics and the church.
Some of the most unlikely, out of the box, unusual, questionable, improbable and untraditional types of people are rising up for such a time as this.
Why? It is to shake the religious system! It is to shake the false foundations of comfort, and it is to awake this nation to a new move of the Holy Spirit.
It is to shake the swampy systems of old that are running peoples' lives into the ruin and far away from the true move of God's Spirit and truth.
The Nameless and the Faceless
Many leaders and voices we used to trust are now losing their credibility, their authority, their platforms and their rankings because of undealt with issues and certain mixtures in their own hearts.
They have overstepped their lanes and have falsely represented the heart of God.
As we are seeing this shaking take place, God is raising up a generation of the nameless and the faceless, that prophets Bob Jones and Paul Cain of the Kansas City Prophets once prophesied about!
God is turning the "nobodies into somebodies," and those who think they are a somebody will suddenly become a nobody.
The Most Unlikely of Things
Expect God to begin to surprise and shock you with some of the most unlikely of things. The most unlikely of people will suddenly fail you, and the most unlikely of people will suddenly come into your life to bless you.
God has a mysterious way of debunking our own traditions and prides and wanting to teach us afresh, by a new childlike dependence and faith in Him, who is the ever-perfect teacher and true rabbi.
"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts" (Isa. 55:9).
"But the anointing which you have received from Him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. For as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and just as it has taught you, remain in Him" (1 John 2:27).
