Isaiah 41:15-20 Behold, I will make you into a new
threshing sledge with sharp teeth;
You shall thresh the mountains and
beat them small,
And make the hills like chaff.
You shall winnow them, the wind shall
carry them away,
And the whirlwind shall scatter them;
You shall rejoice in the Lord,
And glory in the Holy One of Israel.
When the poor and needy seek water,
and there is none,
And their tongues fail for thirst,
I, the Lord, will hear them;
I, the God of Israel, will not forsake
I will open rivers in desolate heights,
And fountains in the midst of the valleys;
I will make the wilderness a pool of
And the dry land springs of water.
I will plant in the wilderness the cedar
and the acacia tree,
The myrtle and the oil tree;
I will set in the desert the cypress tree
and the pine
And the box tree together,
That they may see and know,
And consider and understand together,
That the hand of the Lord has done
And the Holy One of Israel has created
Judgment is coming to the house of God. Threshing. Winnowing. Both the wheat and the chaff are tossed into the air. The coming wind and storm [the coming tsunami] blows away the chaff. The wheat remains. There is coming a thorough separation between those who are truly serving Me and those who are not. Many shall see their own spiritual condition and repent. Others will harden their hearts and depart from the narrow way. The narrow way is the Highway of holiness in the wilderness.
Isaiah 35:8 A highway shall be there, and a road,
And it shall be called the Highway of
The unclean shall not pass over it,
But it shall be for others.
Whoever walks the road, although a
Shall not go astray.
I have raised up many in the wilderness over the past years. I have made them into a newthreshing sledge with sharp teeth! They will thresh the mountains and the hills. That which has been acceptable to My people in the past years will will brought low. The mountains - the teachings, movements and ministries that many esteem highly, but have no substance and lead My people astray will be winnowed thoroughly in the coming hour.
My living water will still flow forth and be found in the wilderness. The glory of Lebanon will continue to come forth from the wilderness - the miracle in the wilderness.
The secret of the wilderness is found close by in
Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength;
And they shall mount up with wings like
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
The mystery of 'waiting on the Lord' has been progressively and more fully unveiled to those in the wilderness.
Look to and listen to those coming forth from the wilderness in this hour!
Some say, 'No direction, no deliverance!' [Isaiah 40:27]. Some say, 'What has been promised is nothing. I don't believe it any more. Is there coming a mighty revival? Many promises. Many prophecies. Have not their words fallen to the ground?'
They are like Alice approaching the proverbial Chester cat at the fork of the road. They ask the Chester cat, 'Which way?' He says, 'Any way will do.'
[Alice in Wonderland – she gets to a fork in the road and she doesn’t know which way to go. There are many different choices that she can make and the Chester cat is sitting up in a tree and she says to the Chester cat, Which way should I go? The Chester cat says , That depends on where you want to get to. She says, I don’t know where I want to go and the Chester cat then says, Well then it doesn’t really matter which way you go – any choice will do.]
The secret of the wilderness is found in verse 31. We need a deep revelation of 'waiting on the Lor d'. Those who have been here have found the Way - the Highway of Holiness in the wilderness. This road is the Highway of the coming tsunami.
To paraphrase C.S. Lewis, "In the Lord, the wrong road never becomes the right road." To get back on the right road, we need to go back to where we missed the turn, which is called "repentance."
There are many roads - the road of the Faith movement, the road of the Charismatic movement, the road of the other movements. However, let us be found of the right road in this late hour - the glorious Highway of Holiness coming out of the wilderness of God.
It is a new way. It springs forth from the Charismatic move; yet is not the Charismatic move. It is of a different character - this highway coming forth from the wilderness.
The Majestic Eagle
And they shall mount up [close to God] with wings like
eagles [mount up to the sun]
When the storm approaches with wind, thunder and lightning, lesser birds head for cover. But the majestic eagle spreads his wings, and with a great cry mounts upon the very winds which drove the lesser to cover. Storms are a joy to him for on their mighty updrafts he soars to heights of glory. And he does it effortlessly, letting the wind carry him where lesser birds must beat with frantic wings to stay aloft. Just so, the eagle saint of God sees behind the coming storm the surging, moving power of the Holy Spirit of God, and rises on wings of faith to rest in God's carrying power far above harm and destruction.
All birds fly. The eagle MOUNTS. It first stands on the rock. It is the only bird that understands the winds - the air currents. She waits for the right wind. When the right wind comes, she spreads her wings. She doesn't fly up. She RIDES THE WINGS OF THE WIND. All other birds fly up. They struggle and there is no rest.
What does an eagle do when it is sick? She stands on a rock very still and lets the rays of the sun soak her body. The sun builds up her body and restores her health.
Poor in spirit
Isaiah 41:17 When the poor and needy seek water,
and there is none.
The character and nature of those prepared in the wilderness: dependent on Him. Kim Clement clarifies true humility:
God says, "I am so tired of hearing people speak without My presence. I have watched throughout great churches as they manifest their presence. But Moses, My humble, meek servant, said these words, 'If Your presence does not go with us, we will not go from here.'"
Those who entered the wilderness were held with low esteem amongst the people of God. They forsook everything.
Isaiah 40:29 He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He
Isaiah 41:14 Fear not, you worm Jacob,
You men of Israel!
I will help you, says the Lord
And your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
However, The Lord has transformed them into a new sledge with sharp teeth! Selah. A humble people completely dependent on Him and whose character is that of the Beattitudes and whose house will stand when the coming tsunami arrives. [Sermon on the mount].
BREAKING NEWS: MARCH 2010 seems to the beginning of this LAST TIDAL WAVE! See Kim Clement and Benny Hinn on "This is Your Day" Tues 9/3/2010, Wed 10/3/2010. Powerful. This is the beginning of the TIDAL WAVE that we have been waiting patiently to come for many years!
This, I believe, is true. Lakeland was false. I have prophesied many times (many articles on Revival Central) that the LAST TIDAL WAVE comes AFTER and OUT OF the Haggai 2 global shaking which began a short while ago. i.e. out of the Great Recession and recent global shaking. Out of famine comes a spiritual change. This also corresponds to the prophetic aspect of "The Great Death" (Job-like experience) teaching on this site. The Great Death is needed to shut the door of the tent bringing us into a deeper continual anointing with power. This corresponds to the third anointing which Benny Hinn is currently teaching about - a powerful anointing AFTER the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
