My kingdom begins at ground Zero where all your theology, education, faith, and money, come up with zero answers.
You struggle and work all your best religious angles to come up with and answer to bring a satisfying victory, but at best, your still fighting with carnal weapons to pull down spiritual strongholds. “Remember even though you walk in the flesh, you do not war after the flesh:  (For the weapons of your warfare are not carnal, but mighty through My Father to the pulling down of evil strong holds;)  You must cast down all imaginations, and every high thing that rises itself up against His knowledge, and make everyone of your thoughts obey Me!” 2 Corinthians 10:3-5.
It is now time to shake your faith! This is the hardest of all shaking, when it seems like the heavens are brass and the physical manifestations do not appear. Can you go all the way to zero and keep Me as your first love? Can you still have pain and declare I AM your healer? Can you go bankrupt and still hold fast to the truth that I AM your supplier? Most western faith is not in Me and this faith shaking will reveal this sad truth, as I shake the government, military, the economy, and your ability to rebuild. You have no idea where your faith is until the final shaking is over. Until that time you only assume your faith is fully in Me.
When you come to the place where there is absolutely no fear of death, and you can say, “Though God slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him,” Job 13:15 you can only assume!
