ISAIAH 1: 5b-9
The whole head is sick, And the whole heart faints. From the sole of the foot even to the head, There is no soundness in it, The wounds and bruises and putrefying sores; They have not been closed or bound up, Or soothed with ointment. Your country is desolate, Your cities are burned with fire; Strangers devour your land in your presence; And it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers. So the daughter of Zion is left as a booth in a vineyard, As a hut in a garden of cucumbers, As a besieged city. Unless the Lord of hosts Had left to us a very small remnant, We would have become like Sodom, We would have been made like Gomorrah.
Today, there is no soundness. Sometimes there is an appearance of wholeness but the discerning see that this is not true. Many have entered the wilderness because of this discernment.
The plan of God in these end times is to bring wholeness again to His body.
He has needed to take His remnant into the wilderness and to separate them from the rest of His body in order to do His work in their hearts. It is a long process. Many have been in the wilderness of God for twenty to twenty-five years. Presently, some of those from the wilderness have been called by God into churches for a season. This has been happening for between two to five years. The process has been a long slow process. The plan is a process to restore and bring wholeness to His body, and is also the preparation of His bride in these last days.
HAGGAI 2: v6-9 "For thus says the Lord of Hosts:
Once more (it is a little while) I will SHAKE heaven and earth the sea and dry land;
and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations,
and I will fill this temple with glory,' says the Lord of hosts.
'The silver is Mine, and the GOLD is Mine,' says the Lord of hosts.
The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,'
says the Lord of hosts.
'And in this place I will give PEACE,' says the Lord of hosts.'
First, the glory and manifest Presence of God. Then the peace - the shalom - of God. A wholeness. A soundness.
