“Shaking! Shaking! Shaking and more shaking! I will shake My Church till she is shaken FREE of all the mud and mire that covers her.
I will loose those who have been held captive by the perversion of the gospel and the perversions of this world.
Do not say “the devil is doing this”. And do not accuse each other, but rather take the log out of your own eyes.
The accuser always wants to cause division in My Church and between Me and My children. Condemnation is the tool of religion and accusation.
I died that YOU may live in GRACE. Where does it say that I am impatient by nature?
Where does it say I condemn the justified? Where does it say I condemn the righteous, who are “covered” in the Blood of the LAMB — My Son?
You are not the judge of the earth. You are not giving the grace to each other that I have given to YOU!
It is NOT by MIGHT, NOT by power and your own strength, but BY MY SPIRIT says The LORD, that you can DO anything! “GRACE, GRACE, to this mountain” cried My Prophet!
Even in the Old Testament which many adhere to more than the new!”
“So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of The LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says The LORD of hosts. ‘Who are you, O great mountain ? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of ‘Grace, grace to it!”‘ Zechariah 4:6-8 NKJV.
Note the double grace! This is parabolic! This is one key. Then He took me to scriptures:
“Instead of your [former] shame you shall have a twofold recompense; instead of dishonor and reproach [your people] shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double [what they had forfeited]; everlasting joy shall be theirs.” Isaiah 61:7 AMP.
Whatever pain, whatever rejection, whatever terrible things have happened to you, you will receive double!
Whatever has been stolen you will receive double what you had.
The LORD HIMSELF is a RESTORER, a Repairer of the Breech. He is Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty One.
Will HE leave out people from this move, because they haven’t had access to inner healing ministers?
Will HE leave out those who have had false teachers and they have no idea of what they are missing? Is HE SO UNJUST? Is HE NOT FAITHFUL?
He is SO beautiful! He is So dazzling, SO radiant, SO fair and lovely. Will He not RESTORE what the locusts have eaten.
Does He not love incredibly this Bride HE DIED TO BRING FORTH?
We have underestimated His grace and His love and HE IS CRYING OUT, “Repent, for have I not said, I will Love you with an Everlasting Love? I will make an Eternal Covenant with you!”
We have been so starved for GRACE , that we have given in to the idea that it is SO limited. We have not seen the LOVE HE HAS for all it IS!
We have judged and devoured one another unceasingly and unmercifully. And even as I write what He is saying, I am overcome with repentance and tears for my own lack and weakness and sin in this area.
Oh COME, let us return to The LORD! Let us see Him as He really is! Let us gaze on His Face. Let us gaze on His Majesty and grant Him all honor and glory and majesty that He deserves and then take that great LOVE and grace that He has given us, the unconditional standing by us, even when we have been weak and sinful, and ashamed, and give it to others who have also been weaker.
Did He not say?
“But instead, there is [absolute] necessity for the parts of the body that are considered the more weak.” 1 Corinthians 12:22 AMP.
“It is time for restoration of all things! It is time for the outpouring of the greater things I spoke of. Are you ready to receive My Glory?
Oh come My Darlings, My Lovers, come away with Me. Just come, just come, for I AM longing to hold you like a mother hen gathers her chicks and to pour out into you even more of this greater GRACE and GREATER LOVE, than you have ever imagined.
You have NO IDEA the greatness of My Love. You think you know. But you do not have in you, the fullness of what I gave My SON.
That is what I AM longing to pour into you! Will you come? Will you repent?
Will you learn how great is My Love, so you can be filled with the fullness of God, as it says in My Word?”
“[That you may really come ] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [ may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!” Ephesians 3:19 AMP.
“The problem with My Church today is the LACK of GRACE for one another, and the LACK OF LOVE.
I AM coming to restore that! I will give it to you if you are willing. I AM longing for you to receive the fullness of what I have for you.
But you must be WILLING to forgive, willing to grant GRACE, even for those who have been your enemies. In heaven you will be ONE.
In Heaven, you will face each other, and how will it be then? Of course then you will know all things because we will be ONE in perfect union. But are you willing to TASTE of it NOW?
Will you forgive those who misunderstood you? Will you forgive those who still hate you and misunderstand you?
Some of those are those in your own family. Many of you have underestimated your own sisters and brothers.
You have judged instead of loving and praying. You have grown weary in well-doing. So I WILL restore the areas of your lacks.
I will grow you into greater love and mercy towards each other and all your fellowmen. Was it not Cain who said, “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
Yes, you are. Many of you understand, and many of you have kept self on the throne of your hearts and not been willing to be your brother’s keeper.
Many of you I AM Calling to keep whole apartment complexes, whole blocks, whole neighborhoods, whole cities, or to birth a whole nation in a day!”
See Jeremiah 12:5-6.
“I AM not talking about a perverted kind of Grace. But I ask you for the sake of your OWN soul and the call on your OWN life, to make repentance and restitution as able, to all you have injured as I show you these things, as best you can.
Walk in HUMILITY and FORGIVENESS, the two things the enemy has no way to resist. Even when I walked in humility on earth, I still confronted evil.
I didn’t join myself to the proud, but to the humble. If you want to remain humble, then commune with the humble.
For My Judgment is for the arrogant in heart, to draw them BACK to the Refuge of HOPE.
I will Judge the exclusivity in My Church. I have made the whole body to function together as a living organism, not as an exclusive club, or an oligarchy.”
“I am surprised and astonished that you are so quickly turning renegade and deserting Him Who invited and called you by the grace (unmerited favor) of Christ (the Messiah) [and that you are transferring your allegiance] to a different [even an opposition] gospel. Not that there is [or could be] any other [genuine Gospel], but there are [obviously] some who are troubling and disturbing and bewildering you [with a different kind of teaching which they offer as a gospel] and want to pervert and distort the Gospel of Christ (the Messiah) [into something which it absolutely is not].
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to and different from that which we preached to you, let him be accursed (anathema, devoted to destruction, doomed to eternal punishment)! As we said before, so I now say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel different from or contrary to that which you received [from us], let him be accursed (anathema, devoted to destruction, doomed to eternal punishment)! Now am I trying to win the favor of men, or of God?
Do I seek to please men?
If I were still seeking popularity with men, I should not be a bond servant of Christ (the Messiah).” Galatians 1:6-10 AMP.
“I have called you to LIFE, and that abundantly. So listen to what The LORD Your God is saying to His Church! Listen for I come quickly and I desire for you to receive all I have to give you.”
“But if it is by grace (His unmerited favor and graciousness ), it is no longer conditioned on works or anything men have done. Otherwise, grace would no longer be grace [it would be meaningless].” Romans 11:6 AMP.
“Then note and appreciate the gracious kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God’s gracious kindness to you — provided you continue in His grace and abide in His kindness; otherwise you too will be cut off (pruned away).” Romans 11:22 AMP.
“For sin shall not [ any longer] exert dominion over you, since now you are not under Law [as slaves], but under grace [as subjects of God’s favor and mercy]. What then [are we to conclude]? Shall we sin because we live NOT under Law but under God’s favor and mercy? Certainly not!” Romans 6:14-15 AMP.
“For God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable. [He never withdraws them when once they are given, and He does not change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call.]” Romans 11:29 AMP.
