You have come to the end of a cleansing cycle.

While praying with intercessor friends this week, I saw two images, one after the next. The first was the inside of a top-loading washing machine with many garments being washed. It seemed to be at the point in the cycle where the rinsing water had been pumped out, as the clothes were all pasted against the inside walls of the drum as they would be from the centrifugal force of the spinning motion. There was no water present. Also inside the drum, lying separate from the clothes, was an empty plastic ball, such as one uses to dispense washing liquid when placing it in amongst the dirty clothing at the beginning of the wash cycle.

The next image I saw was a washing line with beautifully clean clothes of all colors, pegged out to dry in brilliant sunshine. The plastic empty ball was nowhere in sight.

Interpretation:

There is a message here for two different sets of people. The first set of people are represented by the empty round hollow ball. They are operating in the Spirit of Elijah, just as John the Baptist did, preparing the way for the coming of the Lord. The second group are those who have been appointed a long season designed to cleanse their priestly garments, as Malachi 3 describes. These are represented by the multiple different garments on the inside of the washing machine drum.

For both groups, the agitation and tumbling circular motion within a confined space with no vision beyond the drum parameters has come to an end. Within this cleansing cycle, there have been seasons of total immersion in a Heaven-sent fuller’s soap word which has exposed, loosened and separated the dirt from the garments. The dirty washing water has covered and obscured the individual callings and giftings and the rotation of the drum has, at times, felt like it is unceasing. While this stage was in progress, there seemed to always be one more thing to repent of, one more piece of deeply lodged dirt to be freed from. Round and round the cycle continued until complete surrender had been achieved and the cleansing completed. It seemed there was no way out of this closed in place and no relenting in the agitation and discomfort of what was going on in the circumstances of their lives.

The first group, the prophetic vessels, has been right in the middle of the jumbled dirty water, although, in itself, there were no impurities that needed dislodging. These ones made themselves available, like Isaiah, saying, “Here am I, Lord. Send me.” They had found themselves plunged in over their heads in dirty stormy water as a result of faithfully sharing the words given from above. For this reason, many of these appointed prophetic vessels have looked at the filthiness of their surroundings and wondered at their own fitness to be vessels or mouthpieces of the Lord. There just seemed to be so much dirty water surrounding them and while they have been faithful in dispensing every single word of warning; every call to repentance and holiness which they have received from the Spirit, the amount of dirt around them just progressively increased with each revolution, obscuring their vision and sense of direction. The dirtiness of the water swirling around them has made them lose perspective and wonder if it was their own lives which needed the deep cleansing, and if they shouldn’t have shared the word they received. The truth of the matter is that the cleansing word they dispensed during the first stages of the cleansing cycle accomplished the purpose for which it was sent and had loosened the stains and filth in the garments of the priestly Bride surrounding them.

One would think a cleansing word would immediately produce a cleaner environment and spiritual atmosphere, but the confined parameters of the appointed drum served to loosen and make visible the hidden dirt first, containing it for a short season. And in the agitated atmosphere of the drum which changed direction and jostled the garments in different directions, it was impossible to ascertain any kind of progress, in spite of a willingness to repent.

Then came the rinsing cycle and a welcome deluge of clear clean water from above – bringing refreshing after times of repentance and yet, the prophetic vessel was empty and fully spent in the midst of this appointed refreshing. He or she was obedient to speak the words given, yet the downpour from above just temporarily filled the vessel and was poured out afresh amongst the rinsed garments. There was a feeling of progress for the priestly Bride as wonderful refreshing words saturated their garments, but the prophetic vessel remained strangely empty, unable to see or hear any direction from the Throne. All was dark and there seemed to be no escape from this place. A feeling of not knowing their purpose or place in the scheme of Kingdom plans enveloped the vessel, surrounded by clean garments with nothing left to give.

Before, there was turbulence, but there was a word deep within to release. Then the water of the Word ceased flowing and there was no motion. All was still. It seemed there was a holy pause and no way to get out or see what lies ahead. It was a disconcerting place to find oneself. The agitated stormy dirty water was not pleasant and the rinsing refreshing water very welcome, but both these phases involved constant motion and brought changes with each washing of the water of the spoken Word.

The place of stillness and silence; this eerie pause, was unfamiliar. No more words bringing conviction and a desire to repent, NO movement at all. It was a place not experienced until now and both the prophetic vessel and those whose garments have been through a good scrubbing are disconcerted. Is there personal error? Why is nothing happening? Why is it so silent? Where has the Lord gone? Have I missed Him somehow? Have I failed the test?

I have good news for both groups. THE SEASON OF CLEANSING IS COMPLETE. Your garments are clean, priestly Bride. You have cooperated well with the convicting power of the Spirit-quickened word.

The time in the closed-in place is at an end. The time without vision and perspective is at an end. Now comes the lifting out. For the prophetic messenger, the assignment is over and a return to the Master’s hand is imminent. Separation is coming from the group which has been ministered to. You have been a good and faithful servant. God has fresh plans and new blueprints to reveal. The pause, the silence, the lack of motion all indicate a successful conclusion to the assignment; the end of a chapter and a new beginning. Nothing more is required of you at this juncture. Wait for the Lord to set in motion the next chapter. You cannot bring it about by your own efforts; your own prayers or your own decrees. Be at peace and rest. Do not mistake lack of motion around you as an indication of having taken a wrong turn in the path.

What lies ahead is exposure to the glory of God. There is appointed a lifting up and ministrations of the wind of the Spirit; a setting in place on the line, a season of light and wide open spaces and unobscured vision.

4 After the Lord has washed away the [moral] filth of the daughters of Zion [pride, vanity, haughtiness] and has purged the bloodstains of Jerusalem from the midst of it by the spirit and blast of judgment and by the spirit and blast of burning and sifting.
5 And the Lord will create over the whole site, over every dwelling place of Mount Zion and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be a canopy (a defense of divine love and protection). (Isaiah 4:4-5)

We stand at the end of a cleaning cycle. The fuller soap has done its work. We now offer offerings in righteousness once again.

2 But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap;
3 He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He will purify the priests, the sons of Levi, and refine them like gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord offerings in righteousness. (Malachi 3:2-3)

The next cycle and chapter will be very different. This juncture marks a point of separation – from circumstances and locations, both from old companions-in-arms and vessels which have been sources of anointed piercing words from the throne, which have brought alignment and correction. Assignments are to be released as we bask in the glory and light of the Son of Righteousness and each will move into a tailor-made new journey as Kingdom purposes are downloaded and revealed.

There has been fellowship in the cleansing cycle with other saints undergoing rigorous cleansing, but goodbyes must be said. Kingdom plans must be carried out. New assignments must be fulfilled. And the God of Glory must receive all the glory as His yielded vessels walk out the good works prepared for them before the foundation of the earth. Be ready for significant change.

And they shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, in that day when I publicly recognize and openly declare them to be My jewels (My special possession, My peculiar treasure). And I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him. (Malachi 3:17)

Selah.

Thank you for sharing this vision and interpretation with us. You couldn’t have described this season of my life more accurately if I had told it to you myself. And what you’ve said about what is coming lines up with what the Lord has been telling me as well. This word rings true to me.

I pray that whoever needs this word finds it and receives the same peace, comfort, and encouragement that I have in the name of Jesus Christ! It’s time to shine, Remnant! God bless you, sister!

Beautiful and Deep.
Only the peculiar people will understand.

I also sense in the Spirit, a new phase, from tomorrow, the month of July.
Symbolically, as I crossed by the ferry on the Delaware river from Camden, NJ to Independence seaport Philadelphia. The root of the country and it’s laws, etc being setup, by these 13 colonies.
4th July is Independence day.
As I was in the middle of the water, on the ferry called Freedom, and looking up also in the clear blue skies, very hot today, in the 90s temp, I could see shapes of sprits in waterless cloud form, as Book of Jude describes.

I was singing and praying and contemplating… Lord what is it you are doing today here, with me and my family like this….a plan thought of last night to execute.

Tired and fatigued, but dearly wishing this Word of Christine be true soon and me and family in it.

Even so, Come Lord Jesus
Amen
Paul

On 3/8/16, during our intercessory prayer time, the HS spoke these words to me: Your country is in the washing machine now. I have done the sorting and have decided the wash cycle–heavy duty, short, delicate. The ones who go into the cycle are determined by how I see their true heart situation. Some will need more than one wash and the cycle may be changed according to their resistance to my purposes. The detergent I use is the blood of My Son. My bride is without spot or wrinkle so I am very seriously into this cleansing now–top down. Not just politics, but church, heads of family, business, etc. Your country will not look the same in five years and this will be a good thing. But many who claim Me as their God will not like the changes taking place. You must be able to hear Me and not the voices of the religious self righteous.

Thank you Jesus and sister Christine for that encouraging word. Some dsys back I have seen in dream washing machine and I could not get the full interpretation due to the fierce battle I was in. The enemy has come against me both in a spiritual and physical way that I wanted to gjve up all the sacrifices to lay down my life since 2015 for Jesus to prepare me for what is next. Now, I understand why the enemy wanted me to give up! Without the Lord by my side ai would have done it…till I cried out to him with all my strength asking for more spiritual strength to carry on. He shows up in a supernatural way and heals me with two seccular songs…Bats toi (a French song which means Fight) and Call the man by Celine Dion. Listening to both with their respective lyrics were like Jesus talking to me face to face. People has accused me of not hearing the Lord’s voice and of being proud when I have gone to them in peace and with love. They rejected the call of repentance and the Lord’s instructions for their lives to climb higher in the Lord. What surprised me is they are called ‘Christians’ sitting in leadership in church. I am out of any church of man per the Lord’s instructions. The offences and their harsh words to me has hit me hard..but it is not the first time that I am sent to churches of man to blow God’s call for repentance..each time I have been rejected, criticized and accused of serving the devil. I have heard the Lord saying to me: ‘what they have done to me(Jesus) they shall do to you.’ So get prepared brethrens.. I have heard myself saying these words… Read more »

Christine, as God has called you and placed you in both this time, season and place He has you ministering … you Are such an encouragement to me (and to all of us in the body of Messiah) and I remember what He showed me your role in it is. You fulfill that role exceptionally well!!!
Thank you, Christine, for this brought tears to my eyes as I read it. So many things changing and moving around that I was not sure what was going on…thank you, thank you, thank you!
And most of all, I (along with all my brothers and sisters on here at z3). We THANK YOU FATHER OF LIGHTS ABOVE IN WHOM THERE IS NO CHANGING NOR SHIFTING SHADOWS. WE STAND FIRM IN YOU.

Christine-
Good to have you back. Been missing your posts. I believe the key to this entire article lies in the last sentence “Be ready for significant change.” God bless.

Possibly the most accurate description of my life – specifically the sentence “There has been fellowship in the cleansing cycle with other saints undergoing rigorous cleansing, but goodbyes must be said.” I have been saying literal goodbyes (due to their relocations) to every close friend I’ve had in this cleansing/purifying season, and it’s been the hardest time to trust in the Lord feeling like everyone left me. Thank you for sharing this word Christine. I feel so encouraged and filled with a new peace about what I’ve been experiencing.

I know how you feel. I have found most of my local close believing friends have either already been moved away geographically, or are about to move, or have moved onto a different page spiritually. It can be very lonely. I am praying and trusting God for the one or two strategically chosen saints to walk alongside for the journey ahead. It’s wonderful to have fellowship online but we may not always be able to chat like this and sometimes one needs someone to have a cup of tea and a heart to heart with!!

Pleasure, Ali. I have found that when we have an understanding about the situation we find ourselves in, it gives peace and strength to endure the season running its course.

Hi Aly, ive been through your comments, its now 8 months that the Lord has removed me from the one who was a close companion of arm. We have been separated to undergo the deep cleansing. I must say the strong soap of the Lord is hard at time to handle. Hard also to find no one around with whom you can have a tchat on what you are actually experiencing. Since late 2015, the Lord brought us two out of the world to sit at his feet and get trained. It looks that now we are to take the road alone with Jesus. Without knowing one of my cousin has offered me a book which is called One in a Million by Priscilla Shirer. Try to purchase one..you will find some many relevant keys and guidance on where the Lord is leading us to. Its a preparation before entering the Promise Land for him to demonstrate his glory over our life. Hard and tough time but how much valuable cause through that wilderness the Lord wants us to draw closer to him and to experience his presence & goodness like never before. I am reminded many times by Jesus, that we should feel priveliege and joyful of spending sacred moments with him. It can also be interpretated as a preparation before we are being used by the Lord in what he has called us to respectively…same like Jesus went to the desert before his ministry. In the wilderness he was spending lots of his time in prayer. I have been asked to do same. Surprisingly, people has started to offer me books like God’s General, Revival or The Call and I have been asked to read them to find keys to prepare myself. Another thing that I am reminded… Read more »

It is a bizarre place to be. Exactly as she described.
This time should be spent resting and being ready for the next door.

Even if I tried – I can do nothing to quicken the pace and steps – yes I have tried.

Well, Christine, I will certainly be thinking of you and what you wrote next time I do my laundry!
Thank you for your commitment to what you hear from GOD.
