“The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved; He uttered His voice, the earth melted. The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Come, behold the works of The LORD, Who has made desolations in the earth. He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariot in the fire.
Be still, and know that I AM God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah” Psalm 46:6-11 NKJV.
“The noise of a multitude in the mountains, Like that of many people! A tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together! The LORD of hosts musters the army for battle.” Isaiah 13:4 NKJV.
The LORD brought to mind this scripture,
“Then The LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?”” Job 1:8 NKJV.
And I was reminded of Satan’s challenge to God, wondering what God might say…
“Remember the losses Job went through and the afflictions on his body?
Remember how his wife cursed him, and she was the only thing he didn’t lose?
Remember how in the end after much testing, he was restored and received DOUBLE what he lost?” said The LORD.
“And The LORD restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed The LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before. Then all his brothers, all his sisters, and all those who had been his acquaintances before, came to him and ate food with him in his house; and they consoled him and comforted him for all the adversity that The LORD had brought upon him. Each one gave him a piece of silver and each a ring of gold.
Now The LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys.” Job 42:10-12 NKJV.
The LORD continued…
“Now do you think I AM more partial to JOB than to you beloveds?
Do you think that I cannot RESTORE anything you have lost, anything you have given up on, anything that the enemy has stolen?
Did I not say that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH ME?
I know it’s been hard to be tested so much. I know that it is hard to be failing in many areas, and to be tired of this deteriorating world. But I HAVE AN ARMY that needs WARRIORS.
Self pity is the enemy of a warrior. If you give in to fear or self pity, or regret, hopelessness, and despondency, and isolation ensues.
So I AM calling you OUT to time with ME so that I can repair your hearts and RESTORE ALL that the enemy has stolen.
I AM RESTORING. I AM a God of RESTORATION. And I AM calling this army to be an ARMY of RESTORATION and HEALING.”
The Good News of Salvation
“The Spirit of The LORD GOD is upon Me, Because The LORD has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted;
To proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of The LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn;
To console those who mourn in Zion;
To give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of The LORD, that He may be glorified.
And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations.” Isaiah 61:1-4 NKJV.
“Is this not all about RESTORATION, beloveds?
I AM a RESTORER, not the destroyer. That is another weaker fellow.
I AM the GREAT I AM. I AM THE ALL-MIGHTY ONE. SO SHOUT OUT RESTORE!
SHOUT OUT what I put in your heart to declare. DECLARE MY WORD, for I AM performing My WORD.
I CAN restore the hearts of those in the church caught in delusion and deception.
I CAN restore the hearts of your children corrupted by humanism and worldliness.
I CAN restore your delight in ME.
I CAN RESTORE YOUR DELIGHT IN EACH OTHER, and TRUST enough to have real relationships again. I CAN RESTORE. BUT you must BELIEVE.
Sometimes there is no restoration without a FIGHT. Remember that it took the Angel three weeks to get through to DANIEL.
There are greater hindrances today. There are even bigger battles for mankind has grown so.
Do not get dismayed. For the KINGDOMS OF THIS EARTH are collapsible in My sight. They are nothing. I will raise up every valley and level every hill and mountain.
I will bring the kingdoms of men to NOTHING before your eyes. I told you, they have their plans. BUT I HAVE MINE!
There is nothing that I cannot RESTORE. Yes, I listen to the will of men. Yes, I honor your decisions.
BUT I LOOK UPON THE HEART. And I alone KNOW what is in the heart of men or women, boys and girls.
I AM FATHER GOD, and I will be calling on My sons and daughters in this hour to join My ARMY of RESTORATION.
I will pull up, I will pluck out, and I will bring down all that lifts itself up against ME. I will use the common and mundane, and those despised of men to do it!
You despise parts of My own body. Yet I AM not done with My BRIDE. So do not be hasty in your judgments beloved.
Do not molest My bride! Honor those who honor ME. Come to ME when you are wanting to right what is wrong.
Ask for MY OPINION. LOOK TO ME to tell you what is right, and what is wrong. I AM THE RESOURCE for all you need. REMEMBER THIS in all situations.
I look upon the one who is tender and contrite of heart. I will correct all who are correctable. I will teach all who are teachable. And I will restrain all who are too prideful to admit their wrongs.
I will do away with all the arguments and wash over My Church with the power of MY LOVE, that they may SEE their sins.
For many are too blind to see, and too busy and deaf to hear. But I AM NOT LIMITED. I know how to humble and abase those that are prideful or arrogant!
“Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all of whose works are truth, and His ways justice. And those who walk in pride He is able to put down.” Daniel 4:37 NKJV.
I do not want you to make up your mind — without MY MIND.
I do want you to come to ME, and say when you hear something, “Is that true Father?”
Come to ME for the answers to your questions. WAIT on ME, and I will give you the answer you need. It will come.
For in this hour, I will humble many who have walked in pride and arrogance, in The Church, and in the world.
Those who claim to be Christian, but walk in arrogance and pretense will be greatly challenged in the days ahead, as the separating of the sheep becomes even more intense.
You will see many more fall, and some fall and arise again, but I do not want you to think yourself BETTER than any of those that fall. Apart from MY GRACE, you could do nothing right?
I do not want you talking arrogantly, and thinking arrogantly in your heart, that somehow YOU would never do thus and so! You don’t know what you would do, if I withdrew My Grace!
If you want Mercy, then be merciful, even when it costs you to do so. For those who judge without Mercy will themselves be judged without mercy!
And do not think that just because you walk in signs and wonders that you are somehow better than those who may not, yet may walk in greater fruit than you do!
Do not compare yourselves one to another. What is your motivation for what you want? What is your motivation for signs and wonders?
Is it that I be lifted up? Because in this hour it is I alone who must be lifted up!
If you touch My Glory you will be burned — just like a child who touches the fire can get burned, so you will be quickly corrected when you make the mistake to take any credit to yourself!
And do not find yourself judging what is ME, and what is the devil and attributing what is of ME to the devil! Can you not understand the nature of your enemy yet?
Are you still not seeing that he is a counterfeiter? That there is no power of creation in what he does, and what he does is corrupted?
MY GLORY IS INCREASING, and as it does, EMPIRES of men will fall, in the church, and in the earth.
My GLORY WILL EXPOSE EVERYTHING that is false.
MY GLORY will burn up all that is false.
Remember how the rod of MOSES, became the snake that ate the other two snakes of the high priests?
AM I NOT ABLE TO CORRECT MY OWN who dabble in the occult?
I will use the prophets who learn MY NATURE and who overcome their own nature, to confront the darkness and REIGN over the DARKNESS!”
“I will deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you, to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.” Acts 26:17-18 NKJV.
“There is NOTHING I CANNOT DO. THERE IS NO KINGDOM SO GREAT that I CANNOT SUBDUE IT! The Kingdoms of this earth will become the KINGDOMS OF GOD!
I WILL REIGN over all that is now darkness. And I have given you the keys to MY KINGDOM!
MY KINGDOM HAS NO END! It is only the kingdoms that men build that will end.
Ministries come and go. People come and go, but MY KINGDOM has no end. MY WORD WILL BE ESTABLISHED!”
“I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:18-20 NASB.
“‘I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms; I will destroy the strength of the Gentile kingdoms. I will overthrow the chariots and those who ride in them; the horses and their riders shall come down, Every one by the sword of his brother.’
‘In that day,’ says The LORD of hosts, ‘I will take you, Zerubbabel My servant, the son of Shealtiel,’ says The LORD, ‘and will make you like a signet ring; for I have chosen you,’ says The LORD of hosts.”” Haggai 2:22-23 NKJV.
Seventh Trumpet: The Kingdom Proclaimed
“Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” And the twenty-four elders who sat before God on their thrones fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying: “We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty, The One who is and who was and who is to come, because You have taken Your great power and reigned. The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, and those who fear Your name, small and great, and SHOULD DESTROY THOSE WHO DESTROY THE EARTH!” Revelation 11:15-18 NKJV emphasis added.
