A tired, weary people have come through a long desert journey. The Lord says, ‘I know the cries of your heart, and I am coming with My Fresh Fire to refresh, renew and restore you. I am going to heal your broken hearts and recalibrate your souls so that that which traumatised you before, will have no hold on you anymore. A new joy is coming, a new hope and a new courage.’
The Lord is doing a deep work in each of us, calling us closer, higher, deeper, and further into the place of intimacy and companionship with Him. He is recalibrating us once again. This time, the tuning is finer than before. We have entered His waves of fresh mercy and grace, and of holiness and purity, where we will see Him face-to-face… more and more. When we stop and look back from where we’ve come, we are amazed at the ground we have covered. We have journeyed far and have overcome delays, obstacles, accusations, abuse, lack, loneliness, anxiety, perplexity, confusion, loss, disappointment… and all that goes along with leaving the familiar world of slavery… the ‘old’.
The Lord has been our stay. He has been our rock. We have come to know Him as our intimate friend, the one we trust and cling to in spite of the storm raging around us. We hear the winds roar and we feel the ground shake, but we hold onto His Word, and we keep standing strong. A strength we cannot take any credit for. In His strength, we stand, and we shall not be moved! The enemy is charging towards us, we see him with our eyes, but we choose, daily, to not surrender to fear or intimidation, nor his continual lies and deception. We raise a standard, by faith, the standard of His Word and His Name, which is our only protection and salvation today and always.
The last few months have been the toughest I have experienced. Not so much on a personal level only, but corporately as the Bride of Christ. The enemy has upped his game against God’s people. The constant attacks have been incredibly aggressive and relentless. He has been working through anyone and anything that could get to us, specifically to steal our joy and break our hope. The Lord has been training us for battle through these attacks, and He is showing us His Divine strategies in countering the blows of the enemy.
Just as we have entered a true Passover season, so we are entering a true Pentecost season. His Fresh Fire from Heaven will release the power of God in our lives, empowering us for the apostolic work that lies ahead. The Lord has been showing me walls falling, and walls rising. He is saying, ‘I am breaking the walls of the enemy as you praise My Name! For surely, you will see the walls fall and break away in the release of the sound of My presence. For when you lift up My glorious Name within the nations, I will release My power, My favour, My presence, and My glory. It will cause that which has been erected by the enemy, to crumble and fall to dust. It will be the work of My hands, and the nations will witness My glory coming down from Heaven in great might and great power.
As you worship My Name, you will see the breaking of the Babylonian walls, and the rising of Israel’s walls. For I am bringing an exchange of walls during this Pentecost season. With the fresh outpouring of My Spirit, I am releasing a fire that will ignite the church anew. The apostolic will be made manifest as I call forth My people to rebuild, replant and reshape the nations for My glory. My people cannot prosper without the walls of Jerusalem being built again. You are Israel, My chosen people, who will build walls of protection for the peoples of the nations… the strangers will find shelter within your walls.‘
These walls are a metaphor for the systems of governance (in all spheres of society) that the Lord is calling us to build afresh. The inhabitants of the earth are under attack, the Babylonian world-system is driving us into a famine across the earth, to destroy and plunder the nations. However, the Lord has already made provision for the peoples through us. We are the Lord’s Josephs, sent ahead of the famine, to build systems of provision and to restore the walls that have been laying in ruins for many generations. Be ready for clear instruction, Divine connection, and all the provision that is needed to build what you have been commissioned to build in this era. It is the time of released resources, clear mandates and Divine partnerships that will build the walls of Jerusalem as Nehemiah did.
It is time! It is time! It is time! Get ready, Remnant-Warrior. You are called to shift the atmosphere through the sound you release. Praise His Name and make His decrees! When you do, the walls will fall! Stand ready to run and build, for the greatest season is upon you. It is a season of immense fulfilment and satisfaction as you build alongside your Remnant-team, walls that will not be broken, shaken or moved! We are laying solid foundations and raising fortified walls that will protect the nations who fear the Lord, bringing them into a place of prosperity and blessing.
The world, as we know it, is about to change drastically. We have seen hints of it through the man-made reset that has been forced upon the earth, however, we are about to witness what Almighty God’s reset looks like! Let your praises be heard and your hearts swell with faith-filled expectation this Pentecost season. Get ready to receive His Fresh Fire that will ignite His power within you, propelling you forward where you will gain momentum beyond the natural.
The most exciting time is upon God’s people. This era is all about the Remnant partnering with the Holy Spirit, to build God’s Kingdom upon the earth until He returns. That which we build will stand, because we are building by the Spirit and in unity! Let your focus be very intentionally upon Christ, and let the expectation of your heart be to be filled with more of Him. What a glorious sight it will be when the Spirit of the Lord empowers His people to build His work in love and unity!
The Lord has brought us thus far, a people who are fully surrendered to Him, able to hear His voice in the midst of the world’s chaos, to bring forth His purposes and fulfil His desires.
Isaiah 44: 24-28
Thus says the Lord , your Redeemer, who formed you from the womb: “I am the Lord , who made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself, who frustrates the signs of liars and makes fools of diviners, who turns wise men back and makes their knowledge foolish, who confirms the word of his servant and fulfills the counsel of his messengers, who says of Jerusalem, ‘She shall be inhabited,’ and of the cities of Judah, ‘They shall be built, and I will raise up their ruins’; who says to the deep, ‘Be dry; I will dry up your rivers’; who says of Cyrus, ‘He is my shepherd, and he shall fulfill all my purpose’; saying of Jerusalem, ‘She shall be built,’ and of the temple, ‘Your foundation shall be laid.’”
‘Come down and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon; sit on the ground without a throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans! For you shall no more be called tender and delicate. Take the millstones and grind flour, put off your veil, strip off your robe, uncover your legs, pass through the rivers. Your nakedness shall be uncovered, and your disgrace shall be seen. I will take vengeance, and I will spare no one. Our Redeemer—the Lord of hosts is his name— is the Holy One of Israel.
Sit in silence, and go into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans; for you shall no more be called the mistress of kingdoms. I was angry with my people; I profaned my heritage; I gave them into your hand; you showed them no mercy; on the aged you made your yoke exceedingly heavy. You said, “I shall be mistress forever,” so that you did not lay these things to heart or remember their end.
Now therefore hear this, you lover of pleasures, who sit securely, who say in your heart, “I am, and there is no one besides me; I shall not sit as a widow or know the loss of children”: These two things shall come to you in a moment, in one day; the loss of children and widowhood shall come upon you in full measure, in spite of your many sorceries and the great power of your enchantments.
You felt secure in your wickedness; you said, “No one sees me”; your wisdom and your knowledge led you astray, and you said in your heart, “I am, and there is no one besides me.” But evil shall come upon you, which you will not know how to charm away; disaster shall fall upon you, for which you will not be able to atone; and ruin shall come upon you suddenly, of which you know nothing.
Stand fast in your enchantments and your many sorceries, with which you have labored from your youth; perhaps you may be able to succeed; perhaps you may inspire terror. You are wearied with your many counsels; let them stand forth and save you, those who divide the heavens, who gaze at the stars, who at the new moons make known what shall come upon you.
Behold, they are like stubble; the fire consumes them; they cannot deliver themselves from the power of the flame. No coal for warming oneself is this, no fire to sit before! Such to you are those with whom you have labored, who have done business with you from your youth; they wander about, each in his own direction; there is no one to save you.’
