Although I have shared this particular word several times since the original post in January of 2018, I felt led to share it again, and to focus on a different portion than I normally have. Although this word speaks of many earthquakes and volcanoes happening (which we have seen much), it also speaks of what that will symbolize prophetically.
The Lord showed me there would be some great deconstruction and then a "reconstruction" of much of His church. Some would be taken down to studs and some down to the foundation before they would be rebuilt according to His kingdom blueprints. In light of much of what we have been seeing in a lot of areas lately, I felt the Lord wanted me to highlight this word once again. We can never forget, everything He does for and to His church is ultimately for her good. May the master architect do what is necessary to reconstruct according to His plans!
Excerpt From Word, January 2018:
Many things not built on His rule and His kingdom, but on the kingdoms of man and on their thoughts and plans, will be brought down. This will happen in His church more than any other mountain, although it will happen in many other spheres of influence.
The Lord is getting ready to begin a reconstruction of much of His house! He will take many structures down to the studs, and others down to the foundation, before He begins to build again. Some things have been tolerated by the Lord for some time, but they were not His plan, and they are no longer serving His purpose, and some never did. Some were the traditions of men, and although many were fine and good in their own way, some were not, and they have become a stumbling block to His ultimate purpose for His ekklesia. These things will need to be brought down, as they are hindering the flow of His Spirit. If they are not brought down by leadership, the Lord Himself will deal with them and bring them down.
It is time for His Spirit to flow freely once again. If He has to tear everything down, and start again with just the foundation, then He will. Other structures within the kingdom are faulty even down to the foundation, and they will be completely brought to the ground.The plumbline of the Lord will be released in His house, and everything that does not line up with His structure and His purposes will be brought down or reconstructed by Him.
Many churches and ministries will falter, and some even fall apart this year and over the next several years, but this is not for utter destruction, but simply so He can rebuild according to His plans. For those who must go through this .. .do not get discouraged if you are one of these. Do not give up hope or vision.
The Lord is shaking everything out into the open, that it may be dealt with, and that His purposes may be revealed in and through His church. There are some things that have been compromised, but He is giving an opportunity for those things to be corrected, reconstructed properly and set in place according to His blueprints. Only those who will not surrender to His will and His reconstruction will be brought to ruin, but that is never His purpose. His purpose is for reconstruction and restoring, if they will repent, surrender and allow Him to do the work in them and their ministries.
Now is the time for the shaking and rebuilding that has begun to come to a pinnacle. He is doing a new thing, and His new wine cannot be contained in old wineskins, so we must embrace all that the Lord has purposed to do in this new era! Your kingdom come; Your will be done, Lord!"
