I had a dream recently and the Lord spoke to me about His fire that is about to come in intensity upon the earth and upon the Church and throughout the dream, I could see the word “PURIFY” all around.
“HIS FIRE IS COMING TO PURIFY”
I was reminded of Hebrews 12:29:
“For our God is a holy, devouring fire” – (The Passion Translation)
The Lord showed me in this dream that HE is coming as a holy, devouring fire to purge, to cleanse and to purify. There is going to be a great move of holiness and an increase of freedom in the body of Christ as He comes like fire.
In this dream, the Lord showed me that He is specifically about to deal with a spirit of ‘witchcraft’ that has entered into the church. The Lord showed me that this spirit is operating within the body of Christ and prophesying “half-truths” and is “twisting words” and there is a contamination of what the Lord is speaking taking place in the Church because this spirit has found a place, this spirit has found root within Church. I felt the Lord focusing on the fact that this spirit has found “entrance”, it has found a place to “land”. This is not a blanket statement that the entire body of Christ has partnered with a spirit of witchcraft, but that there was an alignment with this spirit that has taken place with some and in some ways, and the Lord wants to bring freedom, cleansing and purification and an invitation for us to examine our hearts and lives in the light of His presence.
I felt the righteous anger of the Lord in this dream towards the havoc that this spirit has caused in His Church and that He is coming to make things right. He is coming to bring a purging of this demonic spirit that has found entrance into the body of Christ.
This spirit of witchcraft was bringing such destruction, such oppression and such contamination into the Church and especially in the prophetic in the body of Christ. Many were being affected by this spirit, many were being attacked by this spirit and the thing is, many did not even realise it. There was such a manipulation and twisting taking place of what God was saying, that it was leaving many in a place of confusion, oppression, fear and feeling like they were being “shut down”.
One key the Lord showed me in this dream was that this spirit was gaining momentum and traction in those who “had no home.” The Lord showed me there was a connection between the assault of this spirit and it finding a “landing place” where there was “lack of community and covering”. This demonic spirit was looking for the “homeless” places. The places where there was not proper biblical accountability, covering and community and coming to steal, kill, destroy and pollute the move of God in the Church and into the world.
The Lord reminded me again, how important community is. How vital it is, especially in this season to be connected, accountable and to be moving not as a lone ranger but part of the family of God. There is power, protection and covering in community and there was a sense of urgency in my dream from the Lord to be intentional in engaging, growing and thriving in community. The place of alignment, surrender, teachability and humility. The fire of God’s love and presence is coming to burn away pride, rebellion (1 Samuel 15:23) and ignite a deeper level of humility, surrender, and revelation of who He is and His Word.
THE LORD IS DEALING WITH THIS SPIRIT OF WITCHCRAFT
The righteous anger that I felt of the Lord in the dream held a decree of “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.” It held a decree of the Lord bringing a radical shift within the Church, a radical cleansing and purifying that was going to lead His people into a greater place of purity. A greater place of repentance. A greater place of increase. A greater place of freedom. A greater place of worshipping Him in Spirit and in truth. (John 4:24)
The Lord in His love and His encouragement was going to bring about a greater “alignment” of purity in the body of Christ in accelerated ways. The Lord showed me that where there has been a partnership with a spirit of witchcraft or open doors to witchcraft in any, He is coming with the fire of His love to break that alignment. Where unforgiveness that has turned to offence and bitterness has become a doorway for this spirit to take hold in some, that the Lord is coming to bring an awakening of repentance, forgiveness and release. It is His love and His presence, the Lord coming as an all-consuming fire, bringing a wave of repentance within many within the Church. Any way there has been a partnership with this spirit, manipulation, control, all rooted out of wounding and insecurity, not only is the Lord bringing healing and freedom but He is bringing forth His Bride in greater maturity and holiness.
The Bride is about to encounter His fire in a deeper way than ever before which will bring forth such a beautiful increase of His light shining through the Church, a greater purity of the words He is releasing and speaking, a greater clarity of vision, and such a deep and beautiful place of worshipping the Lord in Spirit and in truth.
“Who, then, ascends into the presence of the Lord? And who has the privilege of entering into God’s Holy place? Those who are clean – whose works and ways are pure, whose hearts are true and sealed by truth, those who never deceive, whose words are sure.” – Psalm 24:3-5 (The Passion Translation)
The Lord is preparing His Bride to receive a harvest greater than we have imagined. He is preparing His Church for the greatest harvest we have ever seen, and there is a purging and cleansing that is taking place in preparation to receive the huge increase that is beginning to build.
A GREATER AWARENESS AND DISCERNMENT COMING TO THE CHURCH REGARDING THE SPIRIT OF WITCHCRAFT
As the Lord comes with fire to cleanse, to purify and to purge there is a greater awareness and discernment that will be released into the body of Christ regarding this spirit of witchcraft.
The fire of God is increasing the AWARENESS OF and SENSITIVITY TO PURITY, the PURITY of His Spirit and the flow of His Spirit without contamination, twisting or manipulating.
In the fire, the Lord is going to significantly awaken His Church to PURITY and HOLINESS. He is going to awaken His people with greater discernment that will be FOUNDED AND BIRTHED THROUGH THE WORD OF GOD that is going to bring forth that greater sensitivity to deception or contamination.
The Lord is maturing His people and bringing them deeper into the place of utter devotion and partnership with Jesus. Our first love, our Lord and Saviour. To steward His Word, what He speaks and His works with integrity, purity, character and maturity.
THE SOUND OF HIS TRUTH WILL RESOUND – IT IS ABOUT TO BECOME VERY LOUD!!!
The Lord spoke to me that “the sound of truth will resound – it is about to become very loud” and instantly I heard Hebrews 4:12:
“For we have the living Word of God, which is full of energy, and it pierces more sharply than a two-edged sword. It will even penetrate to the very core of our being where soul and spirit, bone and marrow meet! It interprets and reveals the true thoughts and secret motives of our hearts.” – (The Passion Translation)
The Lord showed me a great awakening to the power of the Word of God taking place and the Lord is drawing His people deeper into the Word of God and KNOWING the Word. Knowing the Word in greater ways to be able to move in His truth and combat the lying and twisting of this spirit of witchcraft and move in deeper discernment.
There will be a greater demonstration of TRUTH that is going to take place as His fire falls. The truth of God’s Word is about to become louder. His Word to align, to purify, to direct, to reveal, to convict, correct and deliver. A wave of repentance will gain greater momentum as the truth of God’s Word is seen in greater ways and His kindness revealed.
MANY WHO HAVE BEEN LIVING UNDER DECEPTION WILL BE BROUGHT INTO TRUTH
The Lord also showed me that as His fire falls, many who have been living under deception will be brought into truth. There will be a great shaking and awakening that will take place in their lives as they are awakened to the reality of what has been taking place and the way this witchcraft spirit has come against them or ways they have partnered with it. The Spirit of God will bring forth powerful shakings and revelation of the truth of His Word that will bring forth great repentance as scales fall off many eyes.
DON’T JUST SIT BACK AND WAIT – PRAY
I felt the Lord say “Don’t just sit back and wait – PRAY!!!”. I felt there is an invitation from the heart of God to partner with His heart and the fire He is going to release upon the Church. I felt the invitation of the Lord to come into agreement with His fire, His purifying, His purging, His cleansing and the work of His hands to bring about a whole new revival of holiness within the Church.
To pray for those who have been partnering with this spirit of witchcraft or have been affected by it. To not stand in judgement, offence or criticism but to encourage, to love, to bless and to PRAY for them. For the Lord will send forth His Word, in His way, and bring forth a great repentance of rebellion, partnering with this spirit and bring great freedom, cleansing, deliverance and restoration.
I feel the Lord wants His people to “CALL IN HIS FIRE!!!!”, to intercede, to agree and decree with the fire of God and welcome His fire. For it is not something to be feared, but something to be embraced, because He is preparing His Church to receive the harvest unlike we have ever seen. To know His heart, move in the power of His Spirit with integrity and purity, deeply grounded in the truth of His Word and be prepared to carry the increase.
It is His heart of love, the fire of His love, that is bringing forth a cleansing, purging and purifying. Raising up an army that has one agenda and alignment – JESUS CHRIST. Radical abandonment to Jesus and flowing, moving and stewarding with purity.
The fire of God is dealing with this spirit of witchcraft that has done so much damage to His Church. He is jealous over His beautiful bride and He is going to bring her forth, spotless.
We just need to agree and align with what He is doing.
Let us together, intercede and pray for His fire to come, to welcome the PURIFYING He wants and is going to bring. What a glorious beautiful army of laid down lovers for Jesus, walking in greater revelation of our holiness in Him and walking it out in greater manifestation, is going to arise from His fire.
“For He died for us, sacrificing Himself to make us holy and pure, cleansing us through the showering of the pure water of the Word of God. All that He does in us is designed to make us a mature church for His pleasure, until we become a source of praise to Him – glorious and radiant, beautiful and holy, without fault or flaw.” Ephesians 5:25-27 (The Passion Translation)
