There is A Whole Lot of Shaking, Shifting and Sifting Going On.
2004 get ready to be put through the sieve.
Shifting causes separation & sanctification.
There are two sieves one of the enemy Luke 22-31 “Simon Simon Satan has desired to shift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail, and when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”
The sieve of the Lord Amos 9-9. “For I will give the command and I will shake the house of Israel among all nations as grain is shaken in a sieve, and not a stone will reach the ground”.
Both sieves are used to test Gods people between those who are wheat and those that are chaff.
There will be a distinction between the believer and the hypocrite.
A distinction between what is holy and what is common Lev 10-10
Matt 3 the wheat will be saved but the chaff burned up, for our God is a consuming fire.
Job 23-10 Job said, “When he has tested me I shall come forth as gold”.
The fire will reveal the genuine; it will discover humility and integrity of heart.
Deut 8-2 “Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the desert, these forty years to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart weather or not you would keep his commands”.
We need the holy fear of Lord in our lives that would bring us into that place of reflecting Gods glory, and knowing his ways.
Being relocated the Lord is shifting his church to move into its rightful position positioning herself for breakthrough into the harvest field.
A shift is a change over from one place to another,
That which is proving to be unproductive, or transient (meaning things that are merely to connect or introduce) temporal things God will shift in order for that which is productive may emerge in full glory.
There is I believe going to be a denominational shift with in the hearts and minds of believers.
Walls of suspicion, division, walls of blame shifting, are going to be removed, and unity for the cause is going to be restored.
Eph 2-14. “For he is our peace who has made the two one, and has destroyed the barrier the dividing wall of hostility that was between us.”
Ps 133 “Where brothers dwell together in unity, there the Lord will command a blessing.”
John 17-21. “My prayer is that all of them may be one father just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me”.
Gen 11-5-6. The building of the tower of Babel. The Lord said “If as one people speaking the same language they have began to do this then nothing they do will be impossible for them”.
How much more can we build for the kingdom of God, when we as believers are in one heart and mind.
God is building a people of power and a people of praise, this is what the rebuilding and restoring of David’s tabernacle is all about, the coming together of all believers for the sake of the harvest this shook the Jewish nation
Acts 15-15-17.and introduced a new day.
Sometimes just like the Jewish nation the Holy Spirit has to challenge and shift our traditions, theology, and our mindsets, into that place of right positioning.
Connection relationships & team will be high on the Lords agenda for 2004.
Haggia 2-6-7.This is what the Lord Almighty says.”In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth the sea and the dry land. Iwill shake all nations and the desired of all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory says the Lord Almighty”.
2004- 4 being the number of creation world and space.this will be a year of signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth Joel 2-30.
Haggia 2:6-7. I will shake the heavens Earth Sea and dry land; this is applied to the setting up of Christ’s kingdom in the world.
God shook the heavens and the earth as a sign to Pharaoh as to bring his people out of Egypt; God brings us out so that he can bring us in.
The wise men saw the star, the shepherds saw and heard the angels, the Lords shepherds, and pastors of the flock expect angelic visitations.
God spoke to the shepherds by an angel, to the philosophers by a star, to both God spoke in their own language.
This year expect the Lord to speak to us in many unusual ways.
HEARTS WILL ENQUIRE AFTER CHRIST.
Wales a place a place of superstition and folklore
The wise men who were magicians some say they dealt in the occult, what ever they were they came to Enquirer after Christ.
“Simon the sorcerer himself believed and was baptized and followed Phillip every where, astonished by the great signs and miracles he saw”.
Miracles will be a sign of many turning to Christ.
Acts 19-18-19. “Many of those who believed now came and openly confessed their evil deeds. A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly when they calculated the value of the scrolls the total came to fifty thousand drachmas. In this way the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power”
This came about as those involved in occult practices, saw the sick healed. And deliverance of demons Acts 19-11-17.
Deliverance will be part of the Apostolic call; going into a new area of territory will involve prophetic intercession, and the casting out of demons.
It tells us in v9
“But some of them became obstinate they refused to believe and publicly maligned the way, so Paul left there and took his disciples with him to a different place the Lecture Hall of Tyrannous”.
When Paul moved on he came in contact with the seven sons of Sceva, and a Jewish high priest. Paul confronts the strong man of that region, and over came them through the power and the authority of the name of Jesus Luke 10-17.
Mark 5-1-7. Jesus and his disciples were crossing over into new territory and the strong man of that region was waiting for him, Jesus set him free.
This year expect to see many come out from occult practices, to faith in Christ. The Lord is shaking the heavens, and he is pulling down strongholds of the enemy, and every pretension that sets it self up against the knowledge of God. As believers we have been given the same authority 2 Cor 10.
Children of darkness are coming out Isa2-6-9. Isa8-19-22.
Isa9-2. “The people walking in darkness have seen a great light, on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned”.
Isa60-1-3. “Arise and shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord rises upon you see darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you, and his glory is over you. Nations will come to your light and kings to the brightness of your dawn”.
Get ready church to receive these people with the love of Christ.
I will shake the nations and the desired of All nations will come and fill this house.
Isa2-1-5 In the last days, many who have rejected Christ and his gospel, will look to the church, which shall be raised up above the hills. The gospel church shall be that which can not be shaken, it shall be rooted and firmly fixed.
Many will look to the church for comfort, guidance and direction v3-4.
Time for the church to be awakened from its slumber and fast, let us not be of those who find ourselves unable to speak into current crisis, political and governmental matters.
People are held by fear, we must be able through Christ to set them free.
VICTORY IN EVERY SITUATION.
2004 - 4th son of Jacob Judah means Praise, prophetic praise and worship will be that which will shake the heavens and will be the key to victory.
Daniel3-26. 4th man in the fire was the Lord divine protection, and covering in the hardest times of persecution, trial and testing.
Matt14-25. 4 o’clock in the morning Jesus went to help the disciples in the midst of the storm.
4 elements. Earth, fire, wind, water all signs of Christ’s coming. Matt24.
Delta 4th letter of the Greek alphabet, also meaning a deposit of silt left by a flood, which causes the flow of the river to clog up or choke.
Let us remove the silt out of our lives, that which is clogging up the release of the power of God in us.
“Let justice roll like a river and righteousness like a never failing stream”.
Let us practice justice in the church and in the world, by doing that which is good and right before all men.
Isa45-8. Let us open our hearts to deliverance from heaven, and let righteousness grow with it.
4 women of the bible that took the head of their enemies.
Women of Wales rise up.
1. Gen3-15. Eve. God said to Satan “ will put enmity (hostility hatred), between you and the woman and between your offspring and hers he will crush your head and you will strike his heel.”
Women are the worrior race.
2. Judges9-52-53 woman nameless, this women dropped a millstone on the head of Abimelech and crushed his skull.
3. 2Sam 20-20-22 woman nameless, this women said to Joab that the one that he was looking for, his head would be thrown down to him from the wall, she went into all the people with her advice and they cut of the head of their enemy.
4. Judges 4-24 Jael. But Jael Hebers wife picked up a tent peg and a hammer and went quietly to him while he lay asleep exhausted. She drove a peg through his temple into the ground and he died.
John10, Lazarus had been dead for 4 days, but Jesus went at the right time to bring him back to life. Do we believe that God can bring back to life a dead heart. Life to this nation of Wales, Jesus called Lazarus out let us together as Gods people.
Call the people out, out of darkness into light, out from death into life.
WALES YOU ARE A SIGN AND A WONDER.
Jesus said “Here am I and the children the LORD has given me we are for the signs and wonders in Israel for the Lord of hosts who dwells in Mount Zion”.
Zec 3-6. “Hear o Joshua the high priest you and your companions who sit before you for they are a signs and a wonder for behold I am bringing forth my servant the Branch”,
These are men of wonder they were a wondrous sign of things to come. “I will cloth you with change of raiment”, is the priesthood of all believers 1Peter 2-9. As a royal priesthood we now have access into the throne room of grace.
Heb 4-16. “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence so that we might receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need”
Visitation into the throne room of heaven.
2 Cor 12-1-4. Rev1. New and wonderful revelations and insight to the plans and purouses of God.
Wales we are an Apostolic and a Prophetic people called out by the Lord, as a sign and a wonder to the world. Gods favor and blessing is upon this land.
2 Cor 12-12. These things will mark an Apostle signs and wonders and miracles.
Signs of the winds of change, a sign for Wales that the Lord is doing something in the heavenly realms, I believe was seen in the Tornado that passed by England towards Wales and broke up over the Bristol Channel.
As you know the Seven Bridge stretches over the Bristol Channel, linking England to Wales.
What sign is this for Wales and England.
A link between us, a calling over, two becoming one, I am sure that many of you will have the answer to this.
If you have a chance you must look at Simon Jennings prophecy for Wales Aug 1999.
God Bless Gaynor Rees.
