I have had numerous encounters with the Lord in the last few months regarding the tidal wave of the fear of God that is beginning to crash into the body of Christ. I have never felt the fear of the Lord in a season like what I feel right now. It is not being scared of Him, it’s a reverent awe of who He is and His majesty, His holiness that leaves me undone. Out of love for Him and honour of Him and His Glory to give Him my life and my all with purity, integrity, humility and to walk in complete obedience to Him.
There is a call from the Lord right now to offer ourselves again as living sacrifices to Him.
“Beloved friends, what should be our proper response to God’s marvellous mercies? I encourage you to surrender yourselves to God to be his sacred, living sacrifices. And live in holiness, experiencing all that delights his heart. For this becomes your genuine expression of worship.” – Romans 12:1 (TPT)
This mighty wave of the fear of God is beginning to crash in, over the body of Christ in many areas, but I felt God highlighting stewardship today of the things that He has placed in our hands to build. This wave is going to increase in such intensity because of the urgency of the hour.
I heard the Lord say:
“OFFER YOUR HEARTS”
And immediately I heard Psalm 139:23-24:
“Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!” (ESV)
We really ARE in the era of the greatest move of God that we have ever seen before. I felt the Lord wanting me to release this prophetic word to encourage you to EMBRACE THE WAVE! I kept hearing the Lord saying “EMBRACE THE WAVE AND I WILL SHOW YOU THE WAY!!!”
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.” (Proverbs 9:10 – ESV)
The Lord spoke again:
“These are the days of the beginning of walking in divine wisdom, insight and revelation on a level that has never been seen before”
The magnitude of what God is releasing right now is monumental. For the alignment and move of God and demonstration of His Glory that is going to be revealed there is a purity, integrity, humility and maturity God is requiring. God is cleaning house! There is no place for playing games anymore. There is a fresh wave of AWE that God is restoring to the Church of who He is and His holiness. He is ridding the church of impurity, He is raising the standard through the revelation He is releasing.
It’s a deeper call to intimacy. It’s a deeper call to be a friend of God. It’s a deeper call to KNOW HIM and to KNOW HIS WAYS! The wave is coming. He is coming, ready or not. Those that have eyes to see and ears to hear will catch the wave that is crashing in. It’s time to align! It’s time to arrive! It’s time to fly!
This is the time unlike any other to MAKE YOURSELF READY!!! This wave of the fear of God crashing in is AWAKENING THE RESPONSIBILITY upon the Church to make herself ready. (Revelation 19:7, Matthew 25:1-13)
The greatest move of the Spirit of God, abundance, harvest, acceleration is upon us. The greatest days of seeing the Glory and Majesty of God are upon us and unlike any other time, I feel the urgency and fear of God to steward well. It’s not a striving, it’s not an unhealthy fear, it’s the place of living close to His heart and knowing His ways and stewarding well by complete and total, radical obedience to Him and following in His ways. Complacency, sitting on the fence, living in ‘grey areas’ and compromise are being dealt with right now.
This is the era of decision. It’s the era to decide God’s way or no way and to be all in. Those that steward with purity, obedience, humility and integrity will catch this wave. Embrace the wave of the fear of God.
I heard the Lord say “A LOT is at stake. Put your stake of obedience in the ground.”
Seek Him like never before. Immerse yourself in His Word like never before. Ask for His strategy and don’t move till you hear it. Give Him your complete obedience and you will see the greatest fruitfulness, acceleration, increase and move of the Spirit of God in your life that you have ever seen.
Don’t run from the fear of God, embrace it. Let the revelation of the fear of God grow in you. Tremble in awe before Him, let the Spirit birth it in you. Don’t be afraid of it. For living in that place so close to His heart and knowing His ways, seeing His holiness and majesty, living in surrender to Him is the place where you will run and partner with Him like never before.
A WEIGHING OF MY HAND IS COMING
I heard the Lord say:
“I am coming to weigh My people and test hearts to see how deeply My Word is within My people”
There is going to be an exposing of the heart that is going to take place in this new era and as the fear of God increases. This is not the Lord coming to condemn, it is the Spirit of God moving out of His love to weigh the hearts and lives of His people to see the depth of the Word taking root in lives and hearts. Those who are living deep in the Word of God and cultivating the soil of their hearts and lives to receive the Word of God in their hearts. Those who are allowing the Word to marinate, correct, align, and mature. The Lord will bring an exposing of complacency towards the Word of God to bring repentance and turnaround and lead His people DEEPLY into the Word of God, deeper than ever before and strengthen their FOUNDATIONS because it is what is needed to carry and walk in this new era.
It is out of His love that He will expose complacency to the Word. God is drawing people deeper into the Word and the fear of God is going to break complacency to the Word in the time spent in it and half hearted obedience to it.
Do not be found wanting in the weighing. (Daniel 5:27) It’s time to get deeper in the Word than ever before. To repent for any ways the Lord has spoken through the Word and the response has been anything but complete obedience.
God is raising up a people who know the Word, love the Word, obey the Word and are mature in the Word. He is bringing correction in this area so that His people can walk in greater revelation of His Word and the authority and power that it carries. Living and walking in the Word is foundational in carrying this next move of God and stewarding the increase upon you.
“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” – Joshua 1:8 (ESV)
