"The Lord Says: 'I Am Going to Shock My People Into Alignment'"
I recently had a very powerful encounter with the Lord in a dream and I heard Him speaking over the Body of Christ: "I am going to SHOCK My people into alignment."
This was such a strong statement, communicated so clearly, that I believe the Lord is about to jolt, shock, and shake us at a level we haven't experienced yet. The statement communicated the unexpected. It communicated
an intense move – an intense jolting.
This Shaking Is a Result of His Great Love
Now, what I want to communicate here, before I share the rest
of the dream, is that I felt the heart of God and His love for His people so strongly. In the dream, I had such an incredible sense of the love of God. It was as if the atmosphere itself declared, "BECAUSE I love My people so much I am bringing a greater shaking.
The purpose of the SHOCK is to bring My people into alignment with Me and My ways."
The dream went on and I heard the Lord repeat the sentence again: "I am going to SHOCK My people into alignment."
This time, when He spoke it, I had two concepts clearly laid out before me in the dream.
1. The restoration of the fear of God in the Church.
A defibrillator – the SHOCK to bring LIFE.
The purpose of the shock is to restore the fear of the Lord to the Church and it will act as a defibrillator that is going to bring LIFE back to the Church.
It is going to bring revival and awakening like we have not seen before.
Freedom, Positioning, Purification and Refinement
There is a confronting
move of God upon the Church. In some ways it will be uncomfortable, and to some people it will be offensive. There will be a dismantling. There will be a rearranging, a restaging, and a repositioning that is going to take place. There is another level of shaking
and firing that is coming to the Church, but this shaking and firing is to bring LIFE and to ALIGN God's people – to resuscitate the Church, in many ways, causing the true Ecclesia to arise in victory, maturity and discernment.
The Lord has been speaking to me about the deep maturing that has to take place in the Church. The Lord is bringing a greater firing, refining and shaking to bring forth MATURITY. The Lord showed me that in this place of shaking and shocking, His
heart is to bring freedom, positioning, purification, and refinement to the Church.
This is a time to truly to be nestled close to the Lord, listening to His heart and recognizing the time and season we
are in, asking yourself: "What is GOD saying right now?"
The Shaking Has Just Begun
What God is going to do will be unexpected. Could it be that revival
is going to look a lot different to what we expected? In the coming months, in the "SHOCKING" or in the what may seem to be intense, remember that the Lord is shocking to bring forth LIFE. God is bringing forth ALIGNMENT to the Church BECAUSE of His love for
His people and the world. God is shaking all that can be shaken (Hebrews 12:27) and the shaking has just begun.
I have continued to have dreams about the shaking and the shocking. The Lord will not only
shock the Church into alignment, but there is a greater shocking coming to the nations. God is doing this to release the call of alignment and it has only just begun. The shocking is going to reveal our glorious King Jesus – His power, His majesty, and
that He is the One who sits in the heavens and laughs (Psalm 2:4).
The pride of man is going to be confronted in a greater way than we have ever seen as the shock of the Lord's hand takes place in the
Church and in the earth. The revelation of GOD ALMIGHTY is going to resound in the earth louder than we have ever heard it. Awe and wonder will be the SOUND that will RESOUND!
