"Many of us have become very comfortable soaking in prayer along the river's banks. However, I believe a few can hear in the distance an alarming roar within this spiritual river. Even God's Generals who have been wading in the full depth of God's anointed river sense that something is about to change. This celestial current is beginning to pull everyone in; even those who have been standing around its banks waiting for something to happen now feel its enticing force pulling them in.
"And he showed me a pure riverof water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne ofGod and of the Lamb" (Revelation 22:1).
"The comfort zone for all of God's people is rapidly narrowing as every ounce of their love for God is coming under a great test. Many have already been stripped of their nest egg and their prideful life has been thrashed through the grinding wheels of the greedy. These are the very vessels of God who will find themselves in the forefront, for they have already passed a big test. They sold out their souls giving it all to Christ and committed to serve Him to their death and beyond.
"'When I passed by you again and looked upon you, indeed your time was the time oflove; so I spread My wing over you and covered your nakedness. Yes, I swore an oath to you and entered into a covenant with you, and you became Mine,' says the Lord God" (Ezekiel 16:8).
HIS PROPHETIC WORD and MESSAGE: The Great Purge
"There is a purging coming and if you are standing in the river be prepared. For as it comes flowing from heaven to earth it will be a torrential reigning of the Lord that will turn into a monsoon bringing forth a mighty rushing river of Jesus's love. This will stir your still brooks and cause your river to turn upside down sending you through a rage of rapids, bruising and pruning you, preparing you for what is yet ahead.
"Even though you feel you have taken a great fall as you come over the edge, the water shall take you down so that you may see what is below. You will eventually find yourself surfacing to the top again to tell others what you have seen and where you have been. They will know that you have stood in a difficult place, for the purging of the Holy Spirit will have prepared you as one whom He will use to shake heaven and earth.
"Everything that is not of God shall surely fall, but for all that is of the Lord shall deservedly stand for it will be built upon the rocks where the water falls. You will find that our Lord is going to use you mightily, but you must first come through the rapids. They are at a place of cleansing, a place with radical and mysterious ways of striping the flesh, removing every ounce of self far from you. All that will be left is I who dwells within you, saith the Lord.
"When the unbeliever sees you - they will have seen Me; causing their demons to manifest. Their words of hate will make your skin thick as the hide of a rhinoceros, but your heart shall remain gentle as a dove. For you will continually love them no matter what they do to you. For even if they were to split your back open with a cat of nine tails you will continue to sing praises to Me asking that I forgive them proclaiming they know not what they do.
"You will soon see things are about to change. You have asked for the gifts and the power and you shall have them. Although, not until first you have gone through the mighty cleansing waters that will take you over the edge, lowering you to the abyss, and bring you back up again.
"From this cup you shall drink, and from this cup you shall receive that which I give unto you. But you must first go through this process before you will ever receive the promise. My promise unto the people is this; once you have the power I will trust you with what you have to do for those who come against you. Those who have stalked My people and viciously driven to harm My people you will be touched with My love through your hands. There shall be others like you that will call down this consuming fire from heaven. This fire is not a fire of destruction but rather overwhelming warmth of My love releasing an incense of hope. You shall take charge and loose its saving grace upon all who are not of Me sparking a fire that will take over the earth.
"There are many who are false in the lands that come as disbelievers, warriors of Satan fueled with his hate, but they will not touch you. For you will know that God our Father has given unto you a great and mighty eye to see around the corner of tomorrow, knowing what is being planned. As they hide in their secret chambers, standing in awe before the prince of darkness they will make their plans. However, the transcending ministering spirit sent from heaven will take you into their den of deceit to bear witness to all they plan. Then you will know what to tell My people so they can thwart the enemies' plans, so be it. Amen!"
