“17 They still say to those who despise Me, Jehovah has said, You shall have peace! And they say to everyone who walks after the stubbornness of his own heart, No evil shall come on you!
18 For who has stood in the counsel of Jehovah, and hears His Word? Who has listened to His Word and heard it?
19 Behold, the tempest of Jehovah has gone forth in fury, a whirling tempest. It shall whirl on the head of the wicked,” Jeremiah 23:17-19.
Understand clearly that there is a whirlwind coming.
In Jeremiah 23:19, God is talking about a whirlwind that He has sent — a violent windstorm. The false prophets have said, “No bad is coming” (verse 17). God says, “Do they ever listen to me? I’ve said, ‘I’m sending a whirlwind, and it’s going to fall on the heads of the wicked.’ How dare they say that everything is going to be okay!”
What is coming is bigger and broader and wider and more destructive than anything else that we have ever seen. I don’t know if it’s a nuclear war! I don’t know if it’s bizarre weather patterns! And I don’t know if it’s not just a whirlwind of new kinds of ideas being foisted upon mankind.
What I do know is this.
There are people who are aware in the Spirit that the only stronghold in place right now, a place of immunity and safety, is in prayer and in surrendering to all that The LORD is asking of them.
Many of you are stretched beyond the point that no one can understand. Their financial resources have been given and given again to help others, and yet their own supply seems to be dwindling. There are those who have poured into the lives of others, poured into businesses, poured into mentoring and training others, and yet it appears as if when they reach out there’s nothing left in the pantry for them.
The LORD wants those of you who have been giving, giving, giving – to check your hearts one more time. If He told you to give and to serve and to sacrifice, then you can be guaranteed one thing: He does not withhold from those who have been faithful.
“But this I say, he which sows sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which sows bountifully shall reap also bountifully,” 2 Corinthians 9:6.
“And God, who supplies seed for the sower and bread to eat, will also supply you with all the seed you need and will make it grow and produce a rich harvest from your generosity,” 2 Corinthians 9:10.
I want to encourage you right now to understand the time that we are in. It us a time when nothing is making sense when trying to apply the past patterns and methods or, the natural way of living. It’s going to take a determined, dogged, supernatural approach to understand the seasons the days and the times.
God already understands all of this, but He is not going to communicate to people who will then try to communicate it in natural terms to those who don’t have ears to hear.
He’s going to communicate truth and wisdom to those who were willing to allow their own hearts to go into the fire of refining and changing the way that they have done things in the past.
“The fear of The LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise,” Psalm 111:10.
In His Shadow,
