The first order of business after I have removed the mantels from the egotistical pastors is for Me to seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and strengthen that which was sick, Ezekiel 34:16. Take notice I said, I WILL DO IT, NOT YOU!
I know every detail of the wounding that has taken place. I know how deep the wounds go, and where they are and who caused them. Those that have been wounded are very gun shy, and greatly fear being hurt again. Their trust level is very low and sometimes nonexistent, especially toward the the pastors that wounded them!
Among the wounded are tremendous gifts that have been stifled for years and once trust begins to build, their gifts will explode on the scene, making your work easy and your burden light. The first thing you will uncover is an abundant storehouse of leaders that I sent to the church. Among the wounded you will find a multitude of “apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers;  I sent these years ago for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,” Ephesians 4:11-12, but they have been held captive by the insecure pastors I have dismissed.
These gifts to My church were stifled, wounded and driven away and now I AM raising up thousands of no name leaders who love Me, to feed My sheep, John 21:16-17.
Be careful not to try an save what I tear down, there is nothing I need from the old because, no man puts a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new will make a tear, and the piece that was taken out of the new works against the old.  And no man puts new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles will perish.  But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved, Luke 5:36-38.
Forget the old buildings, and platforms, the promotions, the ads, the billboards, the media, and let My Father draw them to Me, because He knows who is to be placed where and when. You must provide a safe place notice I said: YOU MUST PROVIDE A SAFE PLACE, and then begin to feed My sheep and administer love, then watch what I do!
You can never rush the healing process, each lamb is different and I will restore their souls as I lead them to the safe still waters and safe rich green pastures that YOU PROVIDE. Watch out for those who want to sneak in some of the old wine, it will frighten away some of the wounded, before they have time to heal. Correct those that promote their own agendas with me, me, me. That’s the old wine, it’s all about My Father and His kingdom now!
I will use certain homes as gathering places and safe places and each home that willingly receives the new wine, My peace will remain on that home! Matthew 10:11-13. In these homes give Me complete freedom to do the inner healing and please understand this this takes time! Never plan or set time limits on your meetings, just develop a lifestyle of waiting on Me the days before and then come expecting. Some of the ones I draw to the meeting, are bursting at the seams with pent up anointing that has been stifled for years.
You are to teach and coach and let them flow and you will discover that My ministry is easy! Matthew 11:30.
Okay, Now you provide the safe place, as I start the search and rescue!
