I had given a prophetic word to Singapore at the request of my friend Bruce Allen who ministers out of Spokane, Washington. His ministry is called Still Waters International Ministries. Bruce asked me if I would seek the Lord for a word to Australia and this is what the Spirit of the Lord showed me.
For those areas that have been affected by the floods, understand that God says this was by His hand. He is removing and causing an upheaval of all that brings offense to Him. He is ‘washing’ away the iniquity and if they repent, He promises to be faithful and to forgive them of their sin and cleanse them from ALL unrighteousness.
“Men today seek after what belongs to others and are dissatisfied with what they have. These are self-seeking and walk in envy. Because they do these things and what is right in their own eyes, a flood of filth has come and is washing them away along with their idols. I have pronounced My judgment upon them for they always do what is evil in My sight, says the Lord. Repent therefore and make restitution to those you have stolen from or I will come with the fire of my wrath against you and take away that which you have placed your glory upon. Unless you repent, you will not find shelter even in your strong cities for they are nothing to Me, says the Lord. All your strength before Me is like withered grass, ready to be thrown into the fire. Repent therefore lest a worse thing come upon you.”
And to the righteous, say to them this… “Hold fast My Word and do according to ALL I have said to you. If you do according to My righteousness, no other trial will I bring upon you but will release to you of My Spirit. For those who hold fast to the word of My patience, to you will I pour out of My Spirit and make you strong in the power of My might, says the Lord. Do not trust in the arm of the flesh but seek Me daily. Be faithful in the little and I will reward you with much.”
“A fire is coming to test what manner in which you have built the kingdom of God within you. Those who have followed according to my Spirit, what they have will be further purified. Those who have not obeyed my Spirit but have chosen for themselves what was their own desire, all they have built will be burned up and will suffer great loss for these have not walked according to My direction but have followed their own hearts. What is hidden will be brought into the light to see in what manner it has been built. With untried, untested mortar they have built and in the day of trial, it will not stand. To these I say, buy from Me that which has been purified by fire and fully tested for all that I build will stand forever. Put no trust in yourselves or the desire of your own heart but lay all your desires before Me and allow Me to test it and then, if the thing pleases Me, I shall tell you what you shall do with it.”
“I am clearing the landscape for much rubbish is there and needs to be removed. The time for expansion is coming soon and within a short time, there will not be room enough to contain all that I am about to do. Tear done your walls and your borders. Do not limit the holy One of Israel for I do not regard your standards. My hand is not a closed hand but is always open to him who believes. Do not place your limitations upon Me, says the Lord, for I am without limit. Do not say within yourselves, the Lord does this or the Lord does that, for you do not know Me and I have not told you. Humble yourselves before me for you have become to me a generation who seeks after a sign, an evil and adulterous generation. Do not seek after signs and use this as your mark of favor in order to lift yourselves up in your own sight and in the sight of others. For all who do such things shall be humbled. But if you will humble yourselves and seek the glory of God only, then your right hand will not know what your left hand is doing. Why do you seek the honor of men? Do you not know that is all the reward you shall receive? Instead, do not seek to make your righteous deeds to be seen of men to bring you honor but do what I direct you to do and withdraw. Is it truly My honor you are seeking? Then why do you continue to add titles to your name if it is not to receive the honor and praise of men. Turn from your wicked heart and fear Me, says the Lord, and see if I might turn away from My wrath and heal your land. Do you not know that I desire mercy and not sacrifice? Then be merciful to those who are weak, do not turn away from the poor and love those of whom the compassion of the Lord is upon and do not turn aside. Speak only My words and seek not your own pleasures, nor find and do according to your own ways. Restore the ruined places, clothe the naked, feed the hungry and release those who are captive. Do this and My Glory will arise in the midst of you and I will call you My Son and pour out upon you all of my Glory and fill this land of captives with the power of My Love.”
“It is time to make straight the crooked paths and to wash away the filthy lucre and abominations lest I come and remove your candlestick from its place and My wrath fall upon you. For why should I be angry with you? Cast away your many idols and destroy your high places and I will come and renew My Name in your midst and make your name famous in all the world as a city that did righteousness in My sight, says the Lord your Righteousness!”
I keep seeing the injustices as men who do not know their God and do not walk with Him. It is like a pall of darkness, a thick smoke over all that land, from the east to the west, from the north to the south. There is much worldliness in the Body of Christ there as they are doing according to their will and not the Lord’s. They say, let us build the house of God when God has not instructed them to. What they build is of mortar and stone when God has called them to build with spiritual stones, living stones. There is no discipleship but instead the land is filled with programs that seek to satisfy the flesh and not fill the hunger or satisfy the thirst of those who hunger and thirst for righteousness.
These latter ones are left hungry and thirsty and if these churches do not turn their hearts to the Lord and do what He has long been commanding them, then He will remove His Spirit from them and their houses will become houses of desolation. God will remove these sheep of His pasture from them and raise up from among them shepherds He has been preparing and will cause these to receive of His goodness and favor and when the time comes, His great outpouring will fall upon them. This is the final call to the church at large. If they fail to heed this call, what was warned will take place rapidly, even on the heels of it.
There is a chance for all of Australia to become either a shining example of God’s love and mercies for all the world to see or return to a place of darkness where there is nothing but the cries of the captives. This time is the most critical of times for the time of Jesus’ return is at hand and He is returning for a church who has made herself ready.
