Jettison: To cast overboard or off: a ship jettisoning wastes; a pilot jettisoning aircraft fuel. Or informal. To discard (something) as unwanted or burdensome: jettisoned the whole marketing plan.
I heard the still small voice say, “Jettisoned.” I felt The LORD was saying…
“There will be a very prompt and sudden jettisoning of all that is burdening My Own! I have some things that have held you back that I want to get rid of.
I have a plan to prosper you and bless you, and to use you to exalt My Name. But before I allow you to receive all that, I’ve been honing your character till it is more like mine.
If I pour out all this power and you are not willing to change your mindsets or attitudes, then the gift I want to pour out would be spoiled, so I have been working on you, purging you, and chiseling the hard places, that as I come to pour out glory, there will be a commensurate reception of it, rather than a repelling of what is holy.
I AM stripping My Bride of all her old clothes, and I AM weaving and preparing her new garments to wear.
Though in My eyes, she is wearing a beautiful white dress studded with gold trim and diamonds. She will appear to be wearing burlap to the eyes of some.
You see, I do much of My Work in hiddenness. I do much of My developing, just like developing photos, in a dark room.
It takes a while to do this. It isn’t easy. But what comes forth is more beautiful and clear. There is much yet to be done, but I AM escalating the work and you will see the enemy jettisoned overboard in your lives and the lives of your loved ones.
I AM drawing the backslidden and I AM drawing the lost. I AM drawing the broken and unsightly ones to you. So you will need much more of My holy spirit to cope with all the darkness on them.
Some of you have never been exposed to the horrid things many have been through. You don’t know what it is to be raped as a child, or continually molested as punishment for misbehaving.
You don’t know what it is to be ritually abused and think that god is dead or unavailable. I have many vessels of gold coming out of the wilderness, and leaning on their beloved.
I have much to say to you about your treatment of them. Many of you are just beginning your walk in the wilderness, but those who have been through it will now come forth through this refining and will assume the positions I have held for them from the beginning of time.
There is much to be done in My Church. There is much arrayed against you from doing it. But you are about to see sudden reversals in the lives of those you have given up on, or have felt desperately hopeless about.
I have a surprise for the enemy. I have a surprise for those who think they are wise, but are poor, blind and naked.
And I have delightful surprises for those who have gone through the dark night of the soul, and much pain and suffering and have wondered over and over, ‘When LORD, when?'”
“10 now will I arise, says The LORD. Now will I lift up myself; now will I be exalted. You conceive chaff, you bring forth stubble; your breath is a fire that consumes you. And the people will be burned as if to lime, like thorns cut down that are burned in the fire. Hear, you who are far off [says The LORD], what I have done; and you who are near, acknowledge My might!
The sinners in Zion are afraid; trembling seizes the godless ones. [they cry] who among us can dwell with that devouring fire? Who among us can dwell with those everlasting burnings?
He who walks righteously and speaks uprightly, who despises gain from fraud and from oppression, who shakes his hand free from the taking of bribes, who stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed and shuts his eyes to avoid looking upon evil.
[such a man] will dwell on the heights; his place of defense will be the fortresses of rocks; his bread will be given him; water for him will be sure. Your eyes will see the king in his beauty; [your eyes] will behold a land of wide distances that stretches afar,” Isaiah 33:10-17 AMP.
“For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now I will arise,” says The LORD; “I will set him in the safety for which he yearns.” The words of The LORD are pure words, like silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times,” Psalm 12:5-6 NKJV.
“I want you to arise also out of any discouragement and sorrow over all you have been going through for so long.
I want you to understand the plan I’ve had for the end of the age. I AM opening blind eyes, and I AM blessing the eyes of My Prophets with more clarity and discernment than they have had.
I will add to that supernatural faith, and a dose of miracles that will startle the lost and wicked into salvation. Indeed the sinners in Zion will be afraid.
Trembling will take hold of those who have mocked who suddenly find themselves confronted with the reality of My Kingdom and they will not be able to explain it away!
Arise and shine for I AM arising upon you! Behold your king is in your midst. The LORD who is mighty will do great things in your midst.
You will no longer remember the former things. You will be catapulted into eternity because heaven is coming to earth, and nothing will ever be the same!”
