The Storm before the Shift
In the early hours of the morning on Wednesday 22nd June a storm swept across the UK. One radio broadcaster described it as ‘freak whether hits the UK’. The thunder, the lightning and the rain were reported as being unprecedented for this time of year and even for this nation. I believe that this storm was part of God’s wake-up call, a call indicating that something is about to take place in our nation that will ultimately have a local, national and global impact.
This is what God showed me concerning THE STORM...
SOUNDS of thunder...
There is almost always a SOUND that precedes a move of God. Throughout Scripture whenever God is about to do something unprecedented or unheard of first of all He will speak or make a sound. (If you read my previous blog post 'Total Recall' you will notice that I spoken of this 'sound' before).
In the beginning there was a SOUND.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said....
On the day of Pentecost there was a SOUND.
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
Flashes of LIGHT...
The Scripture indicates that what often follows a sound, or a Word from God is the manifestation of light. Whenever God is speaking, when the Word of God is being released, light, illumination or revelation always ensues.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
Psalm 119:130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
Deluges of WATER...
When I thought about what the water represented in the storm, the three words I heard in my spirit were, cleansing, separation and judgement. I was not too sure about this until I looked into scripture and found that water was often used to cleanse, to separate or even as a form of judgement. A direct consequence of this shift will be the use of God's Word to cleanse, separate and judge.
God is CLEANSING His church
That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
God is SEPARATING the wheat from the tares and light from the darkness.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn
God is JUDGING the world beginning with the House of God
1 Peter 4:17
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
I have no doubt that God has spoken (the Sound) concerning His plan. I believe that God is giving revelation (the Light) to and through His people and I believe that a time of spiritual cleansing, separation and judgement (the Rain) is upon us.
I think it's important to note that not everyone knew there was a storm. Many slept through it. Some were woken by it. Others could not rest in the midst of it. However, the next day everyone heard about it or somehow experienced the effects of it.
Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
I believe wholeheartedly that the STORM was an indication that there was about to be a SHIFT, a major, monumental shift.
On Thursday 23rd June our nation voted on the EU referendum. The vote was simple, should we stay or should we go?
This morning, Friday 24th June, it was announced that our nation had decided on the EU referendum. The decision was close but clear, the majority voted to leave!
The shift has taken place.
The question in the hearts and minds of many is WHAT NOW? WHAT NEXT? Fear, uncertainty, frustration and anger are common words being used to describe how some feel, while there are others who are relieved, confident, glad and at peace with the decision that has been made.
Either way, a change has come and that change will bring with it many consequences.
Whenever there is a national, international or global shift taking place God has ALREADY prepared and 'pre' placed His people to facilitate, orchestrate and advocate His work on His behalf. The result of this referendum – whether or not we agree – is no surprise to God, He has a plan in place and His plan always includes His people.
My question to those whom God has chosen is,
Can you HEAR the sound from heaven?
Can you SEE how God is moving?
Can you FEEL what God is doing?
ARE YOU READY?
