Three topics have been on my heart for the past few days. But when I came out here to begin placing them into words, I found myself completely “blocked” as it were, from starting any of them. Two are pressing, and one involves a pondring of a future event. Yet something is more urgent and it comes in the form of the following link:
TURN YOUR FACE INTO THE WIND (Five Peas In A Pod)
For the saints, we’re in a time of preparation,refining, and separating from the former things that we identified with. The link above recalls a prophetic word that came forth in June of 1987 but is even more urgent in this present hour. It discusses the wind of the Holy Spirit blowing through the land and removing anything that’s not founded upon the rock of Jesus Christ. (I’m paraphrasing) It tells how many saints will observe the seemingly disasterous fallout from this and unwittingly think that the enemy is causing the devastation. Many will not understand that it’s the Lords working as everything that’s not of him is being removed. We’re further called to place our complete confidence in the Lord and “face the wind.” The only things that will be removed are those things which are not of God.
Another thought came to mind as I was going over the prophecy. The wind of the Holy Spirit will also remove any dead weights that we’ve been carrying around. This may entail some unpleasant circumstances, but we should embrace that which the Lord is doing as it will bring us closer to him and prepare us for anything that lies ahead. The eternal benefits of this cleansing far outweigh any earthly unpleasentries. It’s imperative to have our “all” on the altar, our hearts completely upon Jesus, and remember that he will finish the good work that he has begun in us. (Philippians 1:6)
It must have been over two years ago when during one of his broadcasts, Steve Quayle relayed the story of visiting a goldsmith who was refining some pieces. The goldsmith stated “you must get the right temperature. If you make it too hot, you’ll ruin the piece.” Steve asked him “how do you know when you have the right temperature?” The goldsmith replied “When you see your reflection in the piece, the temperature is right.” As with the piece of gold, so it is with us. The fiery trial will not ruin us. (although we may think that it’s too much) It will be just enough to bring forth a greater reflection of Jesus. The priceless souls around us need to see this reflection of Jesus.
Well, I’ll be going for now. Please check out the prophecy and even make some copies for others. This isn’t a fearful event when we understand what’s taking place. Until next time, blessings always in Jesus name.
Hebrews 12:26-29 “Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also the heaven.
And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
Therefore 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.”
