THIS SEASON - IT IS A SEASON OF REPENTANCE, NOT A REPENTANCE FROM GUILT BUT A REPENTANCE TOWARDS ALIGNMENT
The Lord gave me great insight into the times and season we are in through the reading of Ezekiel 40. Ezekiel 40 is a description of the vision of the inner court, as given to Ezekiel and signifies today, our personal relationship and walk with God. You can watch the video listed for a more detailed description of how I obtained the following word from Ezekiel -> Ezekiel Word
The world events have indeed surprised many of us. At first, comes the shock of the change, a lulled acceptance at first, but then comes the time of evaluation. The Lord showed me that many people are now considering priorities and deciding what they want for the future - especially when it comes to their experience of worship and interaction with a Christian community.
I do not believe that God sends sickness on people, but He has stepped into this crisis to use it to bring about great repentance across the Church worldwide. I prophesied a blueprint of repentance at the last Australian Prophetic Conference - see my message here -> Facebook Recording: Message at the APS Nov 2019
People have now gotten over the shock of a worldwide shutdown. Which leads us to our current season. I believe this a season where God is drawing the hearts of men towards Him, it is a season of repentance. But the repentance is not one that comes from guilt, but it is repentance towards alignment. Alignment with the heart of God. Alignment with His priorities. Alignment with His future purposes.
As Nate Johnston said, for the Church, it is not a shutdown, it is a startup.
God has stripped away all that what he has considered unnecessary and confronted the hearts of men with what is important to Him. Many are asking the question, why was I so busy and all that I was ‘doing for the Lord’, was it in His heart or was I so cluttered with doing good I had forgotten to behold Him. As we speak, I believe many are experiencing a personal revival, and there is a great turning towards God in this hour. The peace in the lives of Christians is a mighty witness to those who are lost.
I believe in this repentance of alignment, God is establishing men on pillars of truth and genuine relationship with him, and he is bringing men to a place where they will be loyal and fruitful like they have never been before. There is a place of setting things right and correcting in-balances of the past, and something new is on the rise. There is a new beginning and a correcting of the spirituality of men. There is a new development in the affairs of men regarding business, politics and worship. There is also a new beginning and how they relate to God; there is an opening of revelation to men from God that is bringing them to a higher place in Him.
His grace is covering all that is happening at the moment, there is a multiplied grace on those who are established in his truth. There is no need to fear for God is bringing the Church into all of its glory and fullness and strength at this time. As the Church repents towards alignment, there are another two stages to go through before God has brought his Church to the place of great intimacy Him. There is going to be a revival of holiness, not holiness of legalism, but a holiness cleansing, and in this stage, there is going to be a development across the Church worldwide where words such as repentance, sacrifice and laying things down will become words of joy. After a holiness revival, the next stage that the Church will go through is a revival of worship. Across the world, there is going to be such a change in the personal revival of people that true worship will become mainstream, and people will worship God in spirit and in truth. Along with this worship, there is going to be a new revelation of the Lord’s table, (communion or Eucharist) as we get ready for the great awareness of the dwelling of the spirit of God in the hearts of men.
I prophesy another great awaking across America, and I believe Australia will be a catalyst for the world in the revival of holiness and worship. I see a levelling of the economies of the world and a reset in terms of wealth. I see debt cancellation over poorer nations. As I prophecies before, there is a new affection for the Church coming from the world - (Facebook Post: Prophetic Word), and I truly see a transfer of wealth to God people for those who are pure in heart, loving, kingdom-minded and committed to helping the poor.
Now for the Apostolic comment.
I see a couple of narratives coming out of this situation at the moment. There are those church leaders who are just waiting for the CONVID-19 to pass, and then they are expecting business as usual. Think again. Men’s hearts have changed, and the world has changed. People are going to have different priorities.
Then there is another narrative saying that the church structure of the past was wrong and the way of the future is in new church structures. It all about home churches or online Church etc. Think again. Revival doesn’t come by structure. Revival starts in the hearts of men. The interesting thing that God showed my out of Ezekiel is that the vision he had of the new temple was remarkably similar to the old one. The key difference was the hearts of the worshipers. This alignment is not about structures, it is an alignment of the heart.
People are not going to care too much about church organisations, structures or forms in the new season. At first, there will be a euphoria as restrictions are lifted, but then there will be a despondency and people transition into the desire that God has placed in them during this season. The revival he is bringing is not about structures and forms. It is a revival of the heart, and any leader that can see in the future can see that if we just expect to continue as before - we are in for a shock - and if we think it is all about adjusting the structure - we are in for a lot of work but little fruit - it is about developing genuine Christian community of love and empowering the personal revival of peoples relationship with the Lord so that they may become all that God has intended His temple (us) to become. I call the 4th great awaking in America the revival of the common folk. The season for the superstar Christian and the separation of Church and laity is gone, and we are going to see an empowering of believers in signs, wonders and miracles in conjunction with a genuine, humble love that prefers others sacrificially above themselves. It is a great time of apostolic serving to empower all believers to minister as true sons and daughters of God.
The apostolic mandate that I am releasing on the body of Christ is; do not waste this time during this season of repentance towards alignment. Align your heart and draw closer to him. Get ready for another level of ministry across the body of Christ and drawing of the hearts of men to him.
This is a great day of the visitation of the Lord, and it is a right now it is a season of repentance towards alignment.
