This week’s message is a continuation of the DEEP DEEP Darkness covering the earth is being fueled by spiritual poverty.
Holy Spirit dropped in my spirit, “Iniquity or captivity of the soul.”
Thank you Holy Spirit. Ana says,
“From our birth — inquiry is planted in our spirit. It begins to corrupt our heart through our reasoning, what we believe about our selves and the way we develop ourselves and even where we put our trust.”
The plan of Satan is to lead us through our own fallen natural of self-justification to corrupt our hearts through our own reasoning and behaviors.
It’s such a wicked plan. By our own behavior and thoughts we make ourselves captives to the enemy. And look how we make his job so easy, don’t we?
Our behaviors are built as a small child. If you are like me and your early years were turbulent than your reasoning may need adjusting!
Perhaps you self-justify your behavior?
This justification will keep you stuck! I mean stagnate or motionless in your walk with GOD!
For example, your reaction to things may prove ungodly! Or maybe like my journey, you have a handle on your reactions, but you believe the whispering lies by the enemy. His lies make you feel less than and out of control!
Either way, How does this behavior Glorify Jesus?
We are kings and Priest! Remember! This is not how a king or priest act!
Using myself as an example, I ran a business and it was GO GO GO from the second I woke up at 4:30 am until 4 pm each day. I was exhausted!
Each day began great, but as the day progressed, I became less and less joyful! I blamed my lack of joy on exhaustion all the time.
This was my legal right to myself to sin. BUT We know that when we do things within our own strength — we become joyless and unable to hear GOD or receive His Blessings for our life.
When I finally got wind of my own deception, I began to take steps to rest in Jesus and truly practice boundaries for myself. I even took time off and read the Word of God for myself.
THEN Holy Spirit was able to train me during my rest by His truth.
“Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man whose iniquity the LORD does not count against him, in whose spirit there is no deceit” Psalm 32:1-2
To be honest, my behavior was soul-sh! I self justified my behavior for a multiple of reasons, but more importantly it was because I was not washed of my inquiry.
I began to pray to GOD as I went to work, “LESS of Me, More of you LORD”.
We can agree iniquity is planted at birth. If fed by our flesh and not purged, we make ourselves our own little god.
We feel sorry for ourselves and blame everything and everyone. We allow the enemy of our soul to invade our spirit until death! (Death here refers to our spirit).
Now, if we ask ourselves where this corrupted seed of iniquity comes from?
This is the separation or fall of Adam in the Garden (Genesis 3:1-24). And we are given a picture of good and bad seed through the story of Cain and Able.
Able always giving God his very best and Cain serving his seed of iniquity by saving everything for himself and giving a God his leftovers making himself his own ‘lil god.
To destroy the seed of iniquity within each of us, we must take our flesh (mind, body and soul) to The Cross.
We can do this by serving others and giving up the things we hold dear to our hearts.
God’s work within us is destruction of the body of sin by walking in the spirit.
Isaiah tells us in Chapter 59:12-15. “Our transgression multiplied trap us.”
We are told in Galatians 5:19-21, that if we operate out of our flesh, we are feeding the inquiry already within us. We know It can be destroyed by the power of the spirit alone.
Which is why our intimacy with the Father is so important and why the enemy loves to put obstacles in our path so we can’t enter God’s presence.
Destruction of the body of sin is by walking in the spirit.
It’s really that simple! If you struggle with the same sin, sit quietly with God and ask him to remove the fruit of iniquity!
“When we were living in the flesh [trapped by sin], the sinful passions, which were awakened by [that which] the Law [identifies as sin], were at work in our body to bear fruit for death [since the willingness to sin led to death and separation from God].” Romans 7:5 AMP
Iniquity is the root of SIN!
It’s not our will that destroys the works of the enemy, but the Spirit of GOD!
As we become aware of our inquiry, the Father will MOVE towards us and our relationship with Him will begin to deepen. Praise a God for awareness and we are awake.
“For this reason it says, “Awake, sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”” Ephesians 5:14
Our God shift begins, when our sincere prayer becomes “LORD, less of me and more of You, Jesus!”
God will then unlock the valuable glory of His inheritance in you, and out from you will flow rivers of living water, and the greatness of His power will be seen!
God is shifting you into position for the promise that you’ve been praying for. Sometimes a God shift looks like chaos, setback and even defeat, but God is saying to you, “When the dust settles, you will understand why you had to go through what you’ve been through.”
When we are in the middle of a shift, we notice a change within us is happening.
When a God shift starts, your whole world can seem like it’s falling apart, the pit of hell can seem to be breaking loose, wave after wave of test after test making you feel like you’re being punished.
Don’t Panic…. this is God’s Shift!
In order for God to shift us “into” position, He has to shift us “out of” conditions that prevent our shift.
God is closing wrong doors to wrong plans, wrong relationships, wrong decisions and even some wrong places that have taken you on a detour from His plans for you!
Earlier this summer, The Holy Spirit showed me a rock wall with bees going in and out. There was a hive in a narrow opening within the rock wall.
As the bees worked I could tell they were working hard. You see our land needs pollination by The Holy Spirit to work better. I was led to this scripture:
“For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants. You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any stranger who dwells among you (for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land is defiled).” Leviticus 18:25-27
Benson’s Commentary tells us, “The land is defiled” when we defile ourselves. When we walks in the way of the Divine commands we are blessed (Leviticus 25:19; Leviticus 26:4); “God is merciful unto his land and to his people”.
Jesus promised that we can and should be filled with His Spirit and walk in the same power in which He walked to fulfill God’s intended purposes for us as His Ekklesia.
This flow of His Holy Spirit transforming power working through us enables us to unveil our inheritance as believers.
This promise is to us and for us, but we must be willing and obedient to believe it, receive it, and demonstrate God’s move through us.
God’s foreknowledge is flawless as His ability to know the end from the beginning. He knows the spiritual land is defiled and in the natural land, for He is God and we are not!
“For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You in a time when You may be found; surely in a flood of great waters they shall not come near him. You are my hiding place; You shall preserve me from trouble; You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.” Psalm 32:6-8 NKJV
Over the course of this message, The Holy Spirit added another word within my spirit as I was worshipping The LORD, “The Pengaleng will drop.”
If God says it, I believe it and that settles it.
We must be ready to represent Him well in our times for the earth shift is imminent.
As soon and I under folded this revelation I was given a dream.
As I had been” seeking THE LORD for more revelation of the “pengeleng drop,” He gave me a dream right before I woke up.
I saw these opening not sure if it was a ceiling or a pit! The difference this time it opened like a movie above me as I watched a white skinny smoke drift through the opening turning and twisting like the wind towards me.
Just as it got closer enough for me to see this was some Spirit and not The Holy Spirit, it stopped by these tentacles in the opening.
Then two two square white boxes or train cars floating down the through the opening and each one was dressed like The Red Cross.
They floated down or after the other in single file headed towards me, but they got trapped towards the side also in a tentacle and just hung there.
I heard, “Stop wasting time, there isn’t much time left!”
I asked, “What am I to do?” And I heard, “You know what to do!”
End of Dream.
As I got up, I wrote this dream down, and began to pray and seek the LORD.
Holy Spirit said, “The Earth beneath your feet is about to shift significantly.”
The Prophet Isaiah clearly establishes the immutability of God’s foreknowledge, “declaring the end from the beginning concerning the “things” not yet done “here on Earth.”
If you are wondering why your shift hasn’t happened until now, well it wasn’t time!
God’s timing is perfect!
God told the children of Israel that they had already won the victory against Jericho in advance. But in order to receive it, He told them to walk around the walls for seven days — silently. Then, on the seventh day, give a shout and the walls would come down (Joshua 6:1-5).
Sometimes your manifestation requires silence!
God is saying to you in this shift, follow the instructions. Keep quiet.
You got this. Don’t think about it, just be faithful to what is happening! This Victory is already won. If you keep marching by faith, Suddenly, everything that’s been in your way is going to fall!
Jericho was a city that stood between the wilderness and the promise land and it’s not a coincidence that Holy Spirit provided Jericho as an example because how many of you are exiting their wilderness now? You are on the Threshold of your promise land!
There was no way around it, and no way to avoid it.
A God shift will always take you through situations that prove that with Jesus, if life brings it to you, God is going to bring you through it (Philippians 4:13).
The “Earth” is also a very special product of God’s foreknowledge and His unfathomable love for mankind who are the legal residents of this beautiful planet.
I believe God leaves us breadcrumbs to help us look for an intelligent order to His Earth systems that support life on Earth.
“All who dwell on the earth will worship the beast whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Revelation 13:8
Simply said, planet Earth is full of divinely resources needed to sustain life for billions of life forms that live on Earth until the end of time. God blessed the earth with everything needed to sustain life.
“The earth is The LORD’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” Psalm 24:1
This is why we as the citizen’s of Zion walk with God in Spirit. So he can share His inherent revelation purposes for the times we are living to warn us of the coming SHIFT.
The second key to understanding the invisible spirit realm of this wonderful planet we live on is centered on the expression, “and the fullness thereof.”
The psalmist begins with a representation of God’s dominion over this world in general, and his providential presence in every part of it.
After which follows a declaration of his special presence in his tabernacle. And the fullness thereof — All the creatures are the Lord’s, and especially the inhabitants wherewith the earth is replenished. God’s general dominion over, and interest in, all persons and places.

Holy Spirit showed me that the expression “and they that dwell therein;” is the one that refers to the billions of people who live on this planet shall be provided by God until the fullness of time.
God created the Earth for us, He filled it with everything visible and invisible resource that mankind would ever need to satisfy God’s demand upon our life until the day we die.
God isn’t finished with us. This shift is spiritual first for each of us, but in the natural it will change nations, worldwide.
I was lead to listen to Dutch Sheets this week and he too is speaking of a shaking. He introduced Gina Gholton whose dreams are prophetic and she too is speaking of an earth shaking shift!
“The time for this word has come!” I cannot describe the excitement I felt as I realized that the movement of the angelic hosts would now lead us to the announcement of the next “earth-shaking” move of God.

Everything that’s happening is God’s Plan and He is shifting His Ekklesia into position to walk into your promise, so He can place you right where He needs you to make His earth changes.
His Light shining through us to delivers us out of darkness and fills us with His marvelous light. Now, we shine as lights in a dark world, pointing others to towards God, just in time for His end time harvest!
Our godless world MUST know Jesus! To know Him, they MUST “see” Him!
Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 4 that Christ is the Light, and through the new birth, God puts His Light in us!
Even if you are dwelling in the outer court of the Tabernacle, your anointing allows us to hear His Spirit.
Put this in your spirit…you know it’s a God shift, because The Holy Spirit has been whispering to you.
Situations that would have made you snap — are giving you peace.
You’re letting go without losing it.
You’re saying, “Yes God,” without even knowing it.
This is your shift! You are being taken higher!
God found you faithful through the mountains and the valleys, the stresses and the struggles. He’s seen what people have done and He’s seen the work you’ve put into your faith.
Keep your head up, keep walking.
The prayers and the hopes that you’ve been watering with your tears are about to produce His supernatural harvest and MOVE of God.
Praise GOD! The shift is here! MOVE GOD MOVE!
