Shaking All Things

Dave Howe

For the body:

Shaking all things So that only the Gold is left. Your belief systems will be shaken What you believe about the Lord will be shaken. Your ministries will be shaken. Your fellowships will be shaken. Your jobs will be shaken. Your businesses will be shaken. Your friendships will be shaken. Your families will be shaken. You will be shaken. Shaking your excuses.

Shaking the world out of us Shaking the world off us.

For much of what we think Say and do as ok is not ok and will be shaken. Shaking out all that is not of Christ Shaking all that is not of the rock. Shaking all not on the rock. Shaking all things so that only the Gold is left.

For darkness and light cannot dwell together For a tank of water is not pure even with one drop of poison in it For the poison takes it over and makes it all its own. No more mixing the Word of the Lord with the world No more mixing your thoughts with my thoughts Mixing your ways with my ways.

No more prostitution Can the Body of Christ be united with the prophets of baal. No more dancing with the scarlet harlot.

Shaking all things Shaking your ways Shaking all ways.

For I AM Going Shake the world out of you Shake the world off you Burn up all that is not of me from you all.

Shaking all things Shaking all things Shaking you all So that only the Gold is left. Shaking my people so that they will be Pure and Holy in my sight Shaking you all with my love and Judgement.

For I wish none to perish Mixture cannot stand before me Sin cannot stand in my presence. Come Repent and be clean.

Shaking all things - For I love you all Says The Lord.

Walk in Righteousness, Goodness, and Truth!

June Anne Garber

Hearken unto the Lord and arise and walk in the "goodness and righteousness of the Lord" , and as you walk in goodness and righteousness and in the truth, you will find yourself in My presence and I will withhold nothing from you. So, continue to pursue and to seek Me, and continue to pursue and seek My face, and continue to walk in all that you know that is good and righteous.

For in doing this, the clouds of adversity that loom over you will be split and My Son will shine upon you with healing in His wings and will cause the darkness that attempts to blanket you and attempts to suffocate and stiffle you to be surrendered to My authority as you walk in My righteousness. For you must appropriate that authority, that the clouds be wiped away from those who you pray for that they may see the light of the glorious Gospel on you and thru you, for it is I that will pierce that darkness for them also, as I have for you that My Word and My Glory continue to be increased throughtout the whole earth.

Tear Down the Walls of Offense

Marsha Burns

A brother offended is harder to win than a strong city, and contentions are like the bars of a castle. Proverbs 18:19

I speak to those who have become offended and hurt. The rejection that you have entertained has imprisoned you and separated you not only from your purpose and position in My kingdom, but from Me. You have nursed this offense like a dependent child, and it has become a constant companion and reminder of your pain. It is time for you to make a decision to tear down the walls of offense and forgive those through whom this offense came. You must make a decision to arise out of this place of self-pity, or that which has been lame will be dislocated. (Hebrews 12:13) Release yourself from the bondage brought on by the condition of your heart and be free.

Money Changers and Sellers of Doves

Deborah Voetberg

Jesus at the beginning of His ministry walks into the temple for the Passover and finds, as He had many times before during His life, those who sold oxen, sheep and doves and the money changers doing business. He takes the time to make a whip of cords and proceeds to drive them all out of the temple. He overturns the tables and says to those who sold doves, "Take these things away! Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise!" ( John 2:13 -16 )

Then marking the last week of His ministry, Jesus once again drives out all those who bought and sold in the temple, overturned tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. "And Jesus said, " It is written, My house shall be called a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of thieves." ( Matthew 21:12&13 )

These are the only two times recorded that Jesus had this reaction. Both times were during the Passover Feast. It's not recorded that He had this reaction during the two Passover Feasts in the middle years of His ministry. So why at the beginning of His ministry and again at the end? What is the Father saying to us with these two demonstrations of zeal by the Lamb of God for His house during the feast of the Passover?

The temple went from a house of merchandise to a den of thieves. Jesus went from turning over tables to also turning over the seats of those who sold the doves.

Money Changers were those who exchanged money for the foreigners for a fee, usually at an exorbitant rate, to enable them to pay the temple tax in the Tyrian silver coin. The meaning of why the people had come to sacrifice had been exchanged for the atmosphere of celebration and feasting. The temple had become a gathering place for merchants to dip into the pockets of God's children and lift from them their inheritance. And the children of God gladly gave to be able to partake in the festivities. Even with Christ in their midst, they were blind to His presence, caught up in their tradition and ceremonies.

I believe one of the most grievous sections of scripture during the life of Christ is found in John 7:37&38. This is during the Feast of Tabernacles in which Israel celebrates the time Moses brought water out of the rock; on the last day of a week long of celebration and feasting, Jesus cries out, ( in the Greek the word means to shriek, exclaim, scream, ) "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water." Can you just imagine what was going on in His own heart? Here are His people celebrating a shadow of what was now physically manifested in front of them.

Jesus warned Israel of their condition with the first cleansing that marked the beginning of the season of His earthly ministry; " Do not make My Father 's house a house of merchandise!" ( John 2:13-16 ) And pronounced judgment with the last cleansing; ".but you have made it a den of thieves." ( Matthew 21:12&13 ) The very seats of their hearts had become defiled as they handled deceitfully the things of God.

We are in the last days of the House of God as we know it. Jesus is coming to inspect those who heeded the last turning over of tables and have turned the House of God back into a House of Prayer or those who have made it a den of thieves. He is also coming to inspect the seats of our hearts who posses and move in the anointing. Who sits on the seat? The Lord? What price have we put on the anointing?

Do you feel tables being overturned in your life? The seat of your heart being examined? I know I do and many of those who are around me. Embrace this cleansing that is coming to the Body of Christ. It is out of His zeal and love for His glorious Bride. Press you face into it as you would the winds of a storm that would blow every hindrance from your frame! Soar high into the sun as an Eagle who endures the heat to remove what has defiled him. The church will arise glorious! She will shine so bright that the nations will flow to her light!

Great Grace!

Winds of Change

Tracey DesLauriers

There is a shifting of My Spirit in the land,
Behold, for I have begun a shaking on my people,
A time of sifting the wheat from the tares,
An outpouring of My Spirit, hovers over Zion,
For those who hunger and thirst for more of ME.

Just like my servant Elijah prayed for rain,
And I the Lord God, heard his cry,
My rain is about to fall over the land,
Just as My Word has proclaimed!

My children, rise up Draw yourselves unto Me, seek Me with all I have placed within you,
For My Spirit, is bring forth winds of change.

Those that are weak-My Spirit shall rise up and make them strong,
The humble, will bring forth My word with boldness.
My children, I am calling you to watch and pray,
For I am about to raise up gate keepers,
That will stand strong, and not be shaken.

Yes, winds of change, is on the horizon,
No longer shall I be contained within four walls,
Just like My prophets of old, My Glory, shall be seen over the land.

Do not step back My children,
Or allow hinderences to cause you to withdraw,
Press thru and enter into My inner courts,
For I have waited for such a time as this,
For My winds of change to begin to blow!

Thoughts on Unity

Timothy Glendenning

Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; that they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.' John 17:20,21

The Call of God.---The call to unity comes from God. Through unity alone can the Kingdom of God be set up among men. Through unity alone can the world believe and know that the Father has sent Jesus Christ to reveal Himself to the whole human race. It stands as the unalterable condition on which He can fulfil His mission to mankind. Like all God's calls it is an invitation to cooperation with Him. He lays no compulsion on us. He awaits our cooperative response which will lay hold of His will and make it our own. If unity has slipped away from our grasp it is the common fault of the Christian world. If it is to be regained it must be by the concerted action of all Christians. Every section has shared in shattering unity. Every section must share in the effort to restore it. We are asked to hush our prejudices, to sit lightly to our opinions, to look on the things of others as though they were our very own---all this without slighting the convictions of our hearts or our loyalty to God.

What Christ said to the disciples with human voice He repeats now through His indwelling Spirit. The general need of unity is set down by Him in a proverbial saying: 'Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.' This is as true today as when it was first uttered. It has been accepted by the world of men as applying to every department of life in its separate groupings, political, intellectual, scientific, social. In increasingly wide circles men are striving for unity.

Turning to the Gospels what do we find? Our Lord speaks as He thinks, and He thinks in terms of reality. All life is a symbol; He declares that of which it is symbolic. So He says not 'I am the vine, ye are like the branches,' but, 'Abide in me and I in you . . .I am the vine, ye are the branches.' And again, it is not 'I am like the good shepherd.' He is the reality of which the men who watched their flocks were the shadow. It is 'I am the good shepherd.' 'Other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one flock, one shepherd.' All this was counted as axiomatic even before the Gospels were written. when the gospel was oral, calls divisions 'carnal'---'for whereas there is among you envy and strife and divisions, are ye not carnal and walk as men? For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal? . . . For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.'

By His life on earth He revealed exactly what the unity was between Himself and His Father. It is not so mystical as to be unintelligible to the simple-hearted. The kind of oneness exhibited by Christ with His Father on earth is clear beyond dispute--- a paternal and filial relationship, and a liberty reached through absolute dependence consummated by sacrifice. When all Christians recognize God as Father and look on the things of others as of brothers, the family of God will be complete, a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle. There are patches of unity already, it is true, in an underlying loyalty to Christ. But not enough to make Christianity effective as a peacemaker, a liberator, a universal power, or to satisfy the mind of God.

Christ's prayer for His disciples was not for their individual success or individual achievement, but for unity of and love of the group. Love and unity were indeed the two cornerstones of the Christian Church. The Church grew out of fellowship. It was carried on by love.

The Non-Christian World.---It is highly significant that the growth of the movement towards closer cooperation and unity synchronizes with the recent startling development of divisive movements and influences among men. It comes also at a time when the world mission is confronted with the greatest combination of difficulties which it has ever been called upon to meet. If ever Christian forces needed to present a united front to all that opposes, it is now. And yet the alarming fact is that it is possible that the Christian forces may lose through failure to combine, or, having united, through failure to pay the sacrificial prices necessary. Everywhere we read records of the intense desire for unity felt in the mission-field, where our divisions are a serious stumbling-block.

Another mistake concerns the perpetuation of denominationalism. At present, in a hundred ways, Christians differ from each other, but in proportion as we rally around the living Christ shall we banish our prejudices, enlighten our understanding, and correct our mistakes. We think of our differences mainly as denominational, and we ascribe them chiefly, and quite rightly, to hereditary or traditional sunderings into distinct camps, some of which had an almost accidental origin. But some were the result of deep-down differences of temperament, which create independent lines of cleavage, if cleavage it really be, inside as well as outside our own communion. We are apt to forget by what different roadways the truths of God, even the deepest, the most sacred, the most unchallenged truths, come home to men of different make and temperament.

After all it is not central principles that give us great difficulty. Rather is it that which lies at the circumference---the government of the Church or Order. Perhaps the greatest obstacle to the cause of union is the belief---entertained more or less explicitly by most bodies of Christians---that there is some form of Church order which alone is primitive, and which alone, therefore, possesses the sanction of apostolic precedent. Our review of the historic evidence has shown this belief to be an illusion. Just look at Acts:17-26; to see that. In the primitive Church no one system of Church order prevailed. Everywhere there was readiness to experiment and, where circumstances seemed to demand it, to change. yet it is permissible to hint that the first Christians achieved what they were inspired was favorable to experiment. In this---and perhaps in other respects---it may be that the line of advance today is not to imitate the forms, but to recapture the spirit of the Primitive Church.

A Lost Apologetic.---'That the world may believe.' Incomparably the most serious aspect of continued divisions and aloofness among Christians, and of failure to give unmistakable impression of unity not only in name and spirit, but also in Christlike attitude and service, is that we rob the Christian religion of its mightiest apologetic. On the authority of Christ this is the one He had in mind when He prayed, 'That they all may be one . . . that the world may believe.' In this prayer He revealed that such unity or oneness is possible and obligatory. Every extension of the visible fellowship of Christians will increase the power of the Church to witness to its Lord. If an unbelieving world in these days sees a growing unity in the international field and in other relations, and at the same time observes Christians of different communions, nationalities, and races unable to demonstrate that they love and trust one another enough to unite, what other conclusion can it form than that the Church has vacated

Intimacy With Jesus

Joe Burke

Why did Jesus die on the cross? What was His motivation? Was it just simple obedience to the Father? NO! It was the deep burning desire of His heart to die for you. Jesus has longed passionately to be with you from before the beginnings of the world. He has beheld your face for eons of years. He has a deep affectionate longing for you that has consumed Him for billions of years. His love for you is beyond comprehension. He has an extravagant passion for you. He has been waiting for you from age upon age. All His incredible love has been building up, waiting patiently for you to be born.

In Songs 4:9 Jesus says to you: "You have ravished my heart! my bride." Ravish means to be overcome with emotions of Joy and Delight! Jesus is overwhelmed with emotions of joy and delight at the sight and thought of you. When Jesus died on the cross, the temple veil was torn in two from top to bottom, signifying that intimate access to the Father was available to all. No longer would God be untouchable, unapproachable, and wholly separated from His people. Jesus came charging out of the Holy of Holies through the rent temple veil looking for YOU! He burns with deep desire and unbridled passion for YOU!

Eph 3:18-19 says: "You will be able to grasp fully with all the holy ones, the breadth and length and height and depth of Christ's love, and experience that love which surpasses all knowledge, so that you may attain to the fullness of God Himself." Can't you hear the Holy Spirit crying out to you - You are meant to experience the totality of God's love for you, all of it without measure, unlimited and never ceasing! Christianity is not meant to be only head knowledge. The Holy Spirit is saying that if you had total, complete knowledge of all the teachings of the Church and that's all you had, with no personal experience of Jesus' love, you would be missing the whole ball game!

The overriding goal of our life is to fall deeply in love with Jesus. When we experience personally the passionate love of Jesus for us, the Christian journey is no longer a struggle to overcome obstacles. It becomes an invitation to enter into a love affair with the One who burns with the deepest desire and affectionate longing for us. When we enter this intimacy with Jesus, the overriding goal of our life is to fall deeply in love with Jesus. We become truly free. We then understand what it's like to rise up on eagles wings and soar in the heavens with Jesus. Jesus is saying to you, I don't want to be a causal date, I don't want to be one among many, I want more than an occasional kiss, an annual embrace at some retreat, I WANT A BRIDE! It's breaking my heart, it's bringing me deep distress, I want a bride! Let us consummate this relationship, let us be in an intimate embrace, and let us be intimate friends. I want a bride but I won't force my love upon you. I want my people to freely choose to invite me into their lives. I want a bride who desires to be alone with me in prayer. I want a bride who is intimate with me and who listens to my voice in the Holy Scriptures. I want a bride who will allow me to draw them deeply into my presence where I can pour out my love upon them. I want a bride who will worship me in spirit and in truth, face to face in complete freedom. Whoever freely chooses to be intimate with me will experience the truth of 2 Cor 3:17: "Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom All of us gazing on the Lord's glory with unveiled faces are being transformed from glory to glory into His very image by the Lord who is the Spirit." Lord, we ask for the grace to give our lives totally to you. We repent of all of our self-centeredness and sin that separates us from you. We desire to gaze on your glory with unveiled faces and be transformed from glory to glory. We want to be intimate with you. Do whatever it takes to bring us to this intimacy. Amen

Revelation of the Sons of God

Shirley Lise

Revive my soul, O God. Light the fire of passion deep within. Cast away vain imaginings and open my eyes to see You as You are, high and lifted up, your beauty filling the temple. Guard my heart against all worldliness. Exchange my hard heart for a heart of flesh, one that beats for you, O Lord, my God, I beseech you this day. Bring me into the river of your everlasting love. Open the eyes of the blind and ears of the deaf. Let the sound of your voice be heard in the marketplace. Let the nations see You in your temple and rejoice that the Lord God is king. From everlasting to everlasting, reign, Lord Jesus, reign. Fire from heaven, holy flames of passion, let them fall on me.

Overcome evil with good. Go into places ordained for you. Do not back down to opposition. Do not bow to the whims of men, but stand firm in conviction and I will take you through to victory. My desire is that you win favor in this day, so stand strong in the midst of opposition and you will take the land.

Order is coming to the house. I am arranging and rearranging things. You will marvel at My ability to bring all things into order. This is the day of the emergence of the true church, the Bride of Christ, into her position of divine ability to rule with her king. I have instructed her in her call to rise up in the power and anointing I have placed upon her. This is the day of her release to tear down the high places and to bring the manifest presence of her Lord into the earth.

I am dwelling amongst My own. I have entered into covenant with those who have heard the call to come out from the world and to be consecrated unto the Lord. Great demonstration of My power shall be released into the earth through the workings of My Spirit. I have authority to tread upon serpents and to crush Satan underfoot.

This is the day of revelation of the Sons of God, for there shall come a great separation between those who have entered into the fullness of My Spirit and those who know Me only by name. I have given My Own the mandate to rule and reign with their king, to impose justice on the nations, to join with the Lord in the battle between good and evil. I have arisen in the midst of the people. I have made My purposes known, and I shall accomplish My will and purpose through My remnant Bride, a passionate people who beholds My glory.
