“Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: “I will cause a stormy wind to break forth in My fury; and there shall be a flooding rain in My anger, and great hailstones in fury to consume it.  So I will break down the wall you have plastered with untempered mortar, and bring it down to the ground, so that its foundation will be uncovered; it will fall, and you shall be consumed in the midst of it. Then you shall know that I am the LORD.
Thus will I accomplish My wrath on the wall and on those who have plastered it with untempered mortar; and I will say to you, ‘The wall is no more, nor those who plastered it, that is, the prophets of Israel who prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and who see visions of peace for her when there is no peace,'” says the Lord GOD.
Likewise, son of man, set your face against the daughters of your people, who prophesy out of their own heart; prophesy against them, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Woe to the women who sew magic charms on their sleeves and make veils for the heads of people of every height to hunt souls!  Will you hunt the souls of My people, and keep yourselves alive?   And will you profane Me among My people for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, killing people who should not die, and keeping people alive who should not live, by your lying to My people who listen to lies?”   Ezekiel 13:13-19 NKJV.

“I AM the Masterbuilder, and any foundation not built on Me will fall in the days ahead.

Many have been building whitewashed walls around their own lives, and in the church – living in whitewashed marriages, living in whitewashed lives – pretending to be one thing and yet entirely working for another.

I will bring down the walls of pretense in My beloveds.  I will root up every hidden thing.  If you think you can run from a Faithful Father, you are mistaken . I see everything and I know every part of your hearts.

Every vessel has different uses.  I will restore and uplift, and I will tear down and destroy.  I will raise up and I will put down.

I AM the Lord and there is no other! I will tear down the idols in My church and in the world!

I AM the God Who frustrates the signs of the babblers, and drives diviners mad; Who turns wise men backward and makes their knowledge foolishness; Who confirms the word of His servants ! [Isaiah 44:25-26]

I will have NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME!  You are the temple of the Holy Spirit and I am restoring this temple not made with human hands!  I will restore and MY WILL will be executed in My way, in My house!

I have much to restore in the Church but I have promised and I keep My promises.  Once again, I will shake the heavens and the earth, and I will shake ALL NATIONS, and they will come to the Desire of all nations!

Nothing is beyond My ability to perform it!

I will ROAR over Zion and I will ROAR over My beloveds!  The Lord Your GOD will ROAR out of Zion and the prophets shall go forth to the nations and apostolic power will be restored!

I have not forgotten nor ignored the prayers of My people!  I AM not a man that I should lie, nor a son of man, that I should change My mind.  I will RESTORE.

I AM a God of RESTORATION.  But I will also come in fury upon those who are wicked and deceitful and who plan the demise of mankind to suit their whims and lustful desires.

Be NOT AFRAID of them, for they will tremble when I do My glorious deed.

They will tremble at the words of My prophets and apostles!

They will tremble when I execute My judgments!  I will be with you in adversity and I will bring you through the fire without being burned!  I AM WITH YOU!

I AM working a turn around for all those who have thought they have the upper hand.  You will see signs and wonders and be amazed at what I do in the days ahead.

Be of GOOD COURAGE My beloveds!  Do not give in to fear!

RELEASE MY WORD from your mouths and sharpen your swords! SHARPEN THEM and USE THEM MIGHTILY in song and praise, and in speaking truth to one another and to the LOST.

SOUND THE TRUMPET in Zion ! SOUND THE TRUMPET!  For Your Lord is coming to you and I will explode inside you, destroying every work of the enemy.

Come to ME while I may be found ! Hold on , for I AM coming shortly. Remain steadfast in FAITH !

I AM STRETCHING YOUR FAITH so that you will remain steadfast in harsher times.  Change is coming and you need endurance to run the race.  You also need to change some of your heart attitudes which do not allow for kindness and love and unselfish servanthood.

You will have to learn to share and to consider the other person important.  I AM restoring servant’s hearts in MY CHURCH !

Let go of selfishness, self-will and coldness toward the poor and down and out ! OPEN your hearts and let the King of GLORY come in, and I will change it for you!

Allow me to touch you and give you My heart of love for those around you!  If you do not help those around you, then what will you do when you need the help?

I AM knitting like hearts to each other that you may help each other.

“Lightening striking again” song came to mind.  Lightening is a sign of God’s actions in the earth!
