SEPTEMBER 24, 2007: I am raising up my chosen vessels sovereignty in this hour of shaking, says the Lord. They have the true foundation deeply established in their natures. A deep personal fellowship with Jesus Christ and the deep work of the cross are central to this foundation.
At the same time, the world is being shaken, its strength weakened. Fear and uncertainly grips the hearts of the people of this world. Their knees knock together in fear. The Lord's intention is that every knee shall bow and that they surrender their lives to His Salvation and Lordship. Every knee shall bow - whether in this day of grace or at the Great White Throne judgment. However, the Lord is gracious and kind and does not desire that any should perish.
The 5 'I wills " emphasize God's sovereign hand in this season:
Haggai 2: 21-23: I will shake heaven and earth.
I will other throw the throne of
I will destroy the strength of the
I will overthrow the chariots
And those who ride in them;
The horses and their riders shall come
Everyone by the sword of his brother.
'In that day', says the Lord of hosts, 'I
will take you, Zerubbabel My servant, the
son of Shealtiel,' says the Lord, 'and I will
make you as a signet ring, for I have chosen
you,' says the Lord of hosts.
My blessing will increase and rest on these vessels of Mine. Many of My people are under My curse HAGGAI 1:6. Many take My plans and My purpose from others, but do not have the true foundation established in their hearts. From this day, I am raising My vessels and My blessing will rest on them alone.
I will make them as a signet ring. Apostolic authority will rest on these vessels and will increase significantly in the days ahead. Their message is 'The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine.' As My people are taken from glory to glory in the coming sovereign move of My Spirit, a sifting and refining will take place. The brass will go. Only the gold - the pure gold - will remain in My temple. Those who heed and welcome My vessels will have My blessing rest on them. Those who choose to go their own way and reject My vessels and their message will remain under My curse.
The curse on today's Laodicean church is given in
Now therefore, thus says the Lord of
hosts: "Consider your ways!
You have sown much, and bring in
You eat, but do not have enough;
You drink, but you are not filled with
You clothe yourselves, but no one is
And he who earns wages,
Earns wages to put into a bag with
The way out -
HAGGAI 1:7-8 Thus says the Lord of hosts: "Consider your ways!
Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified," says the Lord.
Spend time alone with Jesus Christ. Prayer. Go up to the mountains. Bring wood - solid wood not melamine - which comes from spending time in His Presence. However, there also needs a shift in the foundations. More that simply spending more time in prayer. The foundations need to be changed!
