Prophecy: Do Not Fear the Earthquake

by | Mar 8, 2021 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

As I was spending time with the Lord, He said, “Tell My people not to fear the earthquake. The ground is shaking all around, but that does not mean that I am not at work. Through the shaking, I am exposing weak foundations.”

As the Lord continued to speak, He took me to Matthew 7:24-27 (NLT):

“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”

Realignment and Rebuilding of Foundations

The Lord says, “There are many who thought they built their homes (beliefs) on the solid rock. However, as the shaking has come, their foundation has cracked, and for some, it has crumbled.”

I saw people sitting around looking at the ruins. Hopelessness is lurking about, and for some, it is sitting right beside them. Some are sifting through, trying to find treasures and memories that they can hang on it. However, they are not looking forward; they are stuck in the moment. Others are angry and demanding an explanation for the shaking. And yet, all they hear is silence.

To this group, the Lord is saying, “It is time to shift your focus. Your eyes must look to me and not to human wisdom and understanding. Since when does man limit me? I am not confined to a timeframe. As you refocus, you will find your ruined foundations are rebuilt and built on the bedrock of my faithfulness rather than on the foolishness of man.”

The Lord then took me to Nehemiah 4:17: “the laborers carried on their work with one hand supporting their load and one hand holding a weapon.” The Lord says that “As you are rebuilding your foundation, you need to take up your weapon at the same time.”

Rock Solid Foundations

As I continue to look around, I also see people who are standing steadfast and secure. The ground is shaking, but they are unshakable. They were more like the watchmen on the wall (see Isaiah 62:6; Ezekiel 3:17-19, 33:6) ever vigilant. Some are calling out what they see, encouraging others and helping rebuild. However, others remain silent. They are looking, watching and waiting but hesitant to speak.

To this group, I hear the Lord sounding a battle cry. I see the captain of the army sounding the battle cry and rallying the troops. To those who have been silent, the Lord says, “open your mouth, and He will fill it” (see Ps. 81:10). It is time for the watchmen to take up battle positions.

The Crescendo of the Roar

I see a picture of the Lord striking the ground with a sword. Each time He hits the ground, the roar of the warrior’s increases. Those who have been silent are beginning to roar. The voices are joining together in a crescendo.

Again, the Lord says to remind the people, “Do not despair. Am I not the great I AM? Is anything too difficult for me? Your focus must be on me. I am the one who set the moon and stars in the sky. I am the one who created the earth and everything in it. Is anything too difficult for me? Why are you discouraged and downcast? Why do you doubt my word? What I have decreed will come to pass. Trust me with the timing. Trust me with the outcome.”

Finding Alignment

— Spend time with Holy Spirit and inspect your foundation and the land on which you built.

— Make the necessary repairs and adjustments (be sure to repent).

— Adjust your wardrobe. Dress for work and battle.

— Remove the tape from over your mouth. Look to God; listen to His direction, and follow His lead.

— Enter into his presence with Thanksgiving.

— Begin to release your roar as you worship, and let that roar spill over into the core of your being.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, we ask your forgiveness for the areas of our lives where our foundation has been unsteady and faulty. Thank you for your truth and that you pull us back on track. At this very moment, we shift our focus back on to you, and we pick up our weapons of warfare. We commit not to battle according to the world’s standard but to listen to our commander-in-chief and do battle from heaven’s perspective. We hear the call to be in the war room, and we will strategize with you. We decree and declare that nothing is impossible for our God. The war has not been lost. There is a massive victory in the air. {eoa}
