Boldness for Realignment -
I heard the Lord say, “I am bringing great realignment to My church and to the nations. Much of the world has crept in to My church and I am bringing a cleansing, refining and a shaking. I am raising up many who will release My strategies to see realignment come back to My church. Many will rise up in great boldness to proclaim My word and draw My people back to truth and the path of righteousness. They will release the full message I give them to release, one that is not modified to please people, but one that is spoken with authority and love and brings glory to Me."
"I am raising up many who have themselves been through great refining. They have such a love for My beloved and want to see My bride made ready. They understand the urgency of the hour. They will speak with boldness on those things that need to be brought into alignment. They will expose areas of darkness, compromise, deception and misalignment. Those that have ears to hear My word through these ones, and hearts to surrender to the refining and realignment needed, will walk in My blessing and will be part of My rising remnant who will partner with Me in seeing My plans manifest in the earth.”
Rev 3:19-22 (ESV) – Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
Key for Boldness -
The Lord went on to say, “The key to the release of boldness is a life surrendered to Me and filled with My Spirit. Just as in the days recorded in Acts, great boldness came on My servants as they were filled with My Spirit. The boldness I am releasing to the remnant that are arising is not brash or harsh but a boldness based on Spirit empowered conviction and a confidence in Me and the life giving message I have given them to release. These ones will walk in love and release My aroma. They will be unwavering in their mandate as their eyes are fixed on Me.”
In Acts chapter 2:14-41 we read of Peter preaching the gospel for everyone to hear after receiving the Holy Spirit. Acts 4:13 tells us the boldness of Peter and John astonished the Jewish authorities. The key to this boldness is listed in verse 8 when Peter begins speaking for it says Peter is ‘filled with the Holy Spirit’. Later in chapter 4 we read of the believers praying for boldness and as they pray, they received a fresh filling of the Holy Spirit and renewed boldness to keep speaking.
Acts 4:31 (ESV) – And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.
Boldness in Prophecy –
The Lord then said, “You will know the ones that carry My true word and message for they carry My heart and walk to the rhythm of My Spirit. The message they release will be one that draws My body to the path of truth and holiness. The message they release will prepare the way. The message they release will bring realignment and blessing to those who heed their message. They will speak forth My word with boldness for they know it is not their words, but Mine, they are releasing. They are pure vessels through which My message flows.”
“I am causing greater doors of opportunity to open for My prophets to release My words for nations to those in governmental positions. Many will have counsel with key people in high standing positions in the nations in order for My strategies for realignment of nations to be released to those in authority. These doors are opening on the back of the intercession of My people who are standing for the nations so now is the time for intercessors to rise up and take their place.”
Jeremiah 1:9b-10 (ESV) – Behold, I have put my words in your mouth. See I have set you this day over nations and over kingdoms, to pluck up and to break down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.”
Boldness in Evangelism –
I heard the Lord speak again, “Those arising in boldness will not just be My prophets but My evangelists. They will boldly proclaim the way to life and will lead many on the path of righteousness. I am sending My evangelists to key places in the nations in order for people to hear the truth and walk in the light. I am raising up those who are not ashamed of the gospel and understand the power of the gospel message. These ones will share the full, undiluted gospel message. Their message will be accompanied by signs and wonders for My kingdom is one of power. I am shining the light on true discipleship for My commission was to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations. I am raising up those who will make disciples.”
Romans 1:16 (ESV) – For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
Matthew 28:18-20 (ESV) – Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”
1 Corinthians 4:20 (ESV) – For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power.
Boldness in Teaching –
The Lord then said, “I am calling My church to allow the Holy Spirit to be their teacher. I am raising up those who will proclaim the truth and shine the light on the power of My word and the need to be filled with My Spirit. Many are arising with great authority to teach My word. Their love for the scriptures will inspire many to study My word afresh and allow it to be a lamp unto their feet. These ones understand that the Holy Spirit is the ultimate teacher and they are led by Him. I will instruct them on what to teach and they will shine the light on incorrect doctrines and lead My people to the truth of My ways, character and word. They will carry a foundational message as I am bringing My people back to the foundations of My word, but their message will be one of power for their words will come with a demonstration of power as they are filled with My Spirit and live a life surrendered to Me.”
1 Corinthians 2:4-5 (ESV) – My speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
Psalm 119:105 (ESV) – Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
John 14:26 (ESV) – But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (ESV) – All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God, may be complete, equipped for every good work.
Boldness for Rebuilding –
The Lord went on to say, “I am rebuilding My church but first there must be a dismantling of those things that are not of Me as I am bringing My church back to the foundations of who they are and what I have called them to be in the earth. I am preparing and perfecting My bride. I am raising up those who will release My vision and plan and call My people to partnership with it, equipping and activating them to walk in their destiny. Many have been called to build in this season - build teams, build hubs, build the vision I have given them. It is also a time of release, for with building and equipping comes activation and release. Those with kingdom vision, who understand My times and seasons, are arising and rebuilding and realigning My church. They are building on the foundation of Zechariah 4:6 for unless they are led by the Spirit they build in vain and what they build is not in line with My plans.”
Zechariah 4:6 (ESV) – Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.
Psalm 127:1 (ESV) – Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.
May we go on being filled with Holy Spirit and may we boldly proclaim the word of the Lord and be led by the Spirit. May we be part of the faithful remnant arising in this time when the Lord is rebuilding and realigning His church and preparing His bride.
