The Exodus of the Church, I AM Shifting You Into Reformation!
I hear The LORD saying, “If you do things religiously right now, you are going to miss what I AM telling you for this season.
Be still and listen to The Holy Spirit… He is trying to shift you into a new season!”
I hear Him saying, “I have pulled you out of the rat race, but many of My People are trying to maintain a place that I never told them to be!
I asked you to turn loose of your own dreams and hear My Dreams for you, but you made your own thing so big that you could not turn loose of it!
It has gotten in the way of our relationship. So I AM shaking it out of your hands again!”
Time to Turn Loose and See God’s Plan
“Now is not the time to hang on to the old way of doing things, but it is now a season and the time of asking Me, ‘Where do I go now, and what do I hold onto and what do I turn loose of!’
I AM opening the door wide for you to step down from your own pride and your own Idols!
I gave you dreams, but you added to them and then the dreams had you!
Can’t you see that I AM trying to get you back to your first love and to once again trusting in the Maker of Your Dreams?
I AM whittling you down to nothing but Jesus! Don’t just stay where you are now…. shift into the new thing!”
I AM Making the Church Mobile
“When I brought My People out of Egypt I brought them out with all the riches of Egypt!
“The Israelite’s did according to the word of Moses; and they [urgently] asked of the Egyptians jewels of silver and of gold, and clothing. The LORD gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they gave them what they asked. And they stripped the Egyptians [of those things],” Exodus 12:35-36.
So I gave them the wealth of Egypt before they went out and I began to make them a mobile church. Thus I AM making My Church mobile in this day!”
I AM Lifting the Burden of Debt
“I AM beginning to bring many out of their burdensome buildings to free them up for the harvest, not only financially, but to free them from the weight of debt and give them what they need to be that mobile church that I AM calling them to be!
Can you not see the weights coming off?
There is much more ahead, but you say, ‘We have all these programs and we have built such a ministry.’
But I say to you, ‘Wait till you see and wait till you hear what I AM about to do with My Church!”
I AM now going to bring innovative ways for the Church (which is the people of God), to minister to the people!
Yes there will be buildings, but not buildings to burden you down financially! If you let go of your own aspirations you will see My powerful Plan for the future!
You will see in the days ahead that the wealth of the wicked shall be laid up for the just! These new avenues that I will begin to show My People will reveal My heart to the people who are in the valley of decision!
It is time to shift out of your old patterns and shift into mine! I AM bringing reformation to the Church and I AM shutting the door on the old model!”
Houses of Discipleship
“There will be places given to the church to disciple people for the harvest! But I have a plan to reach more people than you have ever reached if you will come out of your religious rut!
Church as usual will no longer be in operation! I have decreed it and thus the shaking!
But watch this shaking bring the awakening!
It is time to flow with the season you are in! It is time to be still and know that I AM God!
I have Interrupted Your Plans! It is time to know the season of the shifting!
It is time to learn of me and be directed by My Spirit! It is time to understand that things will never be the same and you will never go back to the days of cozy comfort and complacency if you are to be My Church!
The days of the padded pew and the platform to entertain are over!
It is the day of The Army of God arising out of their season of ease and coming into rank! It is the season of the early rain and the latter rain together!
It is time to shine outside of the four walls in ways that you have never even thought possible! Yes, this is the pause that will usher in the new season!”
“Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in The LORD, your God; for He gives you the former or early rain in just measure and in righteousness, and He causes to come down for you the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, as before. And the [threshing] floors shall be full of grain and the vats shall overflow with juice [of the grape] and oil,” Joel 2:23-24 (AMPC).
