"Let My Wind Blow Out the Old to Bring in the New!"

A More Harmonious Place
As I have been listening to the Lord, I believe that He is bringing us into a more harmonious place with Him, with ourselves and with one another. He said that this will be a healing time in spite of the naysayers. The only reason that you are seeing the enemy kick up his heels is because the glory is shining into these dark places and exposing how horrible he truly is! There is a leveling that God is doing! He told me recently that Cyrus is clearing the temple of idols! He said that Dagon and the presence of God will no longer be able to dwell in the same temple! Dagon will fall face first in the threshold of the door on his way out!
God says: "I am kicking the idols out of America! I am raising up the Samson's again in this season and I will use them to bring down even the temple that Dagon dwelt in! I will bless those again who bless Israel and I will not tolerate those who come against you!" (Note: Dagon - Wikipedia- In the Hebrew Bible, Dagon is particularly the god of the Philistines with temples at Beth-Dagon in the tribe of Asher [Joshua 19:27] and in Gaza. [Judges 16:23 tells soon after how the temple is destroyed by Samson as his last act.])
Be Still and Peace Will Come
Then I heard the Lord say, "Be still and know that I am God in this season and then I will speak to you and bring peace to your being where there has not been peace! I will honor those who honor me and to your children I will be like a wall of fire round about! I will be the peace in their hearts and they will come after peace! I will draw them back to the peace that they felt before they went into the streets and found no rest in their drugs and in their foreign gods. I will expose the false gods in this season! My David's, Joseph's and Daniel's have moved into your house called White! You will see them prosper you and their boldness will make the Church bold! I have put them in and the world will know that it is I, even I, that placed them in as a covering to this nation!"
Time to Be Presence Led
"My angels have moved into this country as My people have stood for Me and spoken My name! This past Sunday (January 22, 2017) many of you felt the shift in your gatherings! If you saw a breakthrough in your meetings then you know that you have followed after My presence and I will now show up in your meetings and strengthen you for the harvest!
"If you felt a closure and a deadness in your gathering I am calling you out to follow My presence elsewhere! Be presence followers... I am bringing the remnant together. Depart from Babylon! Depart from dead religion! Depart My people, you who are hungry for My presence! You are released! I have said to Pharaoh, 'LET MY PEOPLE GO!' Now I will open the sea and destroy their enemies as they cross over into a new season of fruitfulness! This is not a time to relax but a time to press forward!"
Don't Just Go But Find Where You Flow
The Lord then said:
"As you have seen one administration move out of your House America and another move into it, so I am moving you My Church, from striving to flowing - from being works oriented to being presence driven!
I am going to move people out of 'jobs' in the Church into their anointings and callings so that Heaven can flow to earth! Many have stopped the ebb of the tide of My Spirit by not being called to the place where I have placed them. These people went and were never sent! The sent ones will begin to move into the Church house. Step aside if you were not sent and make room for those who were chosen. Make way for the chosen of God to step into positions! I have called you all but you must find where you flow!"
Let My Wind Blow
"Yes. Just like one administration took their stuff and went on, so I am calling you to clear out the old to allow the new to come in! I am saying this, otherwise the new will not be able to come in! Let the Ruach Hakodesh blow through your homes, your families and your churches once again!
"Yes, it will expose that which is holding you back and it will not be pretty in some cases but let the wind blow! Let the wind expose the dirt and bring it to the surface. Let the wind blow your idols out, for in the Spring you will be so busy with the harvest that you will not have time to allow this to cause you to grow faint in your season. Yes, I am cleaning house in this season!"
Present Your Bodies as a Living Sacrifice
"I am asking you to listen to Me right now and change the way that you do things in regards to your body which is the temple. Yes I am speaking to you My temple! I need you strong to go into the Promised Land! I need you strong! It is time to thoroughly obey Me so that you will not faint in this season!
"I need you strong and fit for what is to come! I am asking for you to do as I asked the church at Rome...to present your bodies to Me! You were bought with a price and no longer belong to yourselves! It is time to arise!!!"
Romans 12:1-2 (CEB) "So, brothers and sisters, because of God's mercies, I encourage you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice that is holy and pleasing to God. This is your appropriate priestly service. Don't be conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you can figure out what God's will is-what is good and pleasing and mature."
