“Behold, I send My messenger, and he will prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. Behold, He is coming,” says the LORD of hosts.
But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like launderers’ soap. He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the LORD an offering in righteousness,”Malachi 3:1-3 NKJV.
“The sound of noise from the city! A voice from the temple! The voice of the LORD, Who fully repays His enemies!” Before she was in labor, she gave birth; before her pain came, she delivered a male child. Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, she gave birth to her children. Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?” says the LORD. “Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb?” says your God. “Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad with her, all you who love her; rejoice for joy with her, all you who mourn for her; that you may feed and be satisfied with the consolation of her bosom, that you may drink deeply and be delighted With the abundance of her glory.”
For thus says the LORD: “Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream. Then you shall feed; on her sides shall you be carried, and be dandled on her knees. As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.” When you see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like grass; the hand of the LORD shall be known to His servants, and His indignation to His enemies.
For behold, the LORD will come with fire and with His chariots, like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury, and His rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by His sword the LORD will judge all flesh; and the slain of the LORD shall be many.
“Those who sanctify themselves and purify themselves, to go to the gardens after an idol in the midst, eating swine’s flesh and the abomination and the mouse, shall be consumed together,” says the LORD. For I know their works and their thoughts. It shall be that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come and see My glory,” Isaiah 66:6-18 NKJV.
“I AM coming again like a mighty rushing wind and nothing that is now in a certain order, will be the same after I come.
Behold I AM coming to make all things new, and every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is LORD OF LORDS. I will displace those who have sought to promote their own kingdoms, and I will make MY NAME preeminent! I will establish MY order, and MY KINGDOM above all others!
Do not be dismayed. Do not be discouraged. I AM coming to break the chains that bind you!
I AM coming to raise up an army and to walk with you during this last days battle! You will NOT walk alone. You will not suffer alone! You will do great exploits in My name and many will come to the brightness of My glory!
Everything is being prepared. Heavenly emissaries are awaiting their orders. You are awaiting. The saints are anxious to see all that will be played out in these times. Many things have remained a mystery. But the days ahead will bring revelation of all that was meant by the prophets of old.
I AM pruning and I AM refining, and I AM re-rooting many trees in My garden. Nothing will be the same for any who are truly Mine! I will not disappoint you! I will not leave you out.
I know your weaknesses and I know all about you. I know what the enemy has done to deceive and delude. But I AM coming with power and might to set things in My order!
Suddenlies are upon you and will OVERTAKE you! You must walk in FAITH My children! SPEAK MY TRUTH! Do not give in to the wiles of the evil one who will set his face to dissuade you from the truth!
He will bring such doubt and such condemnation to undermine what I have told you. He will try to confuse you and separate you from those I AM calling you to be aligned with.
He will send his minions to bring others NOT called to be by your side, just to try to confuse you.
BUT I WILL GIVE you the keys to discernment that you will recognize his tactics and ways, and you will know what is from ME, and what is not.
Many of you are in transition. I have uprooted you from where you were standing. And I will re-route you to where I want you to stand.
I have been tearing down those things that keep you comfortable in your old ways, that you would come into MY WILL and stand where I want you to stand within the ranks of My end times army.
Some who thought you were only privates will be generals. And some who thought yourselves to be generals will be called to serve others in a lower rank. I AM not demoting you as much as causing you to rethink your PRIORITIES.
The servant of God, must be servant to ALL. I will lift up the humble. But the proud, arrogant and boastful will be humbled and brought low in these times.
For many humbled by years of rejection, this sudden shift will catch you off guard. Do not be dismayed. Do not be surprised when I give you FAVOR. For I AM changing the old guard and replacing it.
I AM mixing and I AM fixing! I will use whom I CHOOSE! I will send whom I WILL! I AM the head of My church!
I ask you to listen for the still small voice and to obey ME. And if you are not listening, then you may hear the loud, audible voice. And it will SUDDENLY come to set things straight and in order.
I will apprehend the younger generation in startling ways. Do not think I have crossed them out! I will not pass by anyone. I will not abandon My turtledoves to the wild beasts of the earth.
I will pour out My Spirit in unprecedented ways and SUDDENLY you will find yourself catapulted into a whole new realm of living and walking with ME.
GET ready! Get ready! Expect sudden changes!
Some of these changes will come in unusual ways. You may think you have lost everything, but in fact you will find yourself gaining everything that is eternally important.
Job lost everything, but then regained DOUBLE everything he had lost. WALK IN FAITH. WALK IN HOPE. BUT do NOT walk in lust of the flesh and the world. Seek ME and MY righteousness and all you need will be provided you.
I have SUDDENLY also loosed My judgments in the earth. The arrows have begun to be loosed. SUDDEN judgments will bring opportunities for My people to give and to be generous, and to share what they have with others.
It will be an occasion for comforting those as I have comforted you. It will be occasion for sharing your testimony. Remember that I said, If you deny Me before men, then I will deny you before the FATHER.
The days are here, and now are, when you will be tested on this.
Do not compromise My Truth!
Look to Me for how to answer! Demonstrate My love to others and nothing will be impossible for you!”
But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly they shall be wounded. So He will make them stumble over their own tongue; all who see them shall flee away. All men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider His doing,” Psalm 64:7-9.

“So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone. Indeed, as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them. Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.”‘ So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army,” Ezekiel 37:7-11 NKJV.
