In referring a week ago today (4th December) to my foretaste of the Lord’s return plus the Lord’s wanting us to ask for “the revival of the holy, reverential fear of God”, I’m very concerned for its falling not only upon our fellow citizens but also and foremost upon all clergy and laity in every part of the Church. I’d noticed this topic started in Scotland and has been heard elsewhere in the UK (see #1 and #2) but had already been received on the other side of the world – in Australia!
We thus have another example of the Lord’s GPS in action (Global Prophecy Signals). So let’s read and weigh two more words on the fear of the Lord, the first by courtesy of UK Prophetic Words.:
‘Last night (3rd Dec) driving home the Holy Spirit whispered the word “Hurricane” to me.
‘I felt that the Holy Spirit is about to blow violently through our churches. Anything that is not firmly anchored down will be blown away – I feel that we about to see a mighty and potentially frightening move of God’s spirit that is going to purge everything that is not anchored in him.
‘I feel this is to prepare the church ready for the following move of God where God manifests His glory in a more intense and astonishing way that we have ever experienced.
‘This mighty blowing of His spirit is an act of loving kindness. Holiness and purity will be essential to host the next level of glory that God wants to pour out on His bride. However, Sin and compromise cannot exist in the full glory of God. Ananias and Sapphira found this out to their peril –God in His love wants us to avoid the consequences they experienced.’

The next day in Queensland, Lana Vawser published an extensive message she’d been hearing for a few months, which includes this of direct relevance to our theme:
THE FEAR OF GOD
‘The Lord has been speaking to me so much about the fear of God being restored to the Church beginning in greater ways in 2018. The Lord showed me this happening through signs and wonders, huge amazing demonstrations of His power and the UNEXPECTED ways of God.
‘The Lord is about to BLOW YOUR MIND in 2018! He is going to do things you have never imagined. You are going to see Him move in nations in amazing ways.
‘You will see Him use the FOOLISH things of the world to shame the wise.
“But God chose them who the world considers foolish to shame those who think they are wise, and God chose the puny and powerless to shame the high and mighty. He chose the lowly, the laughable in the world’s eyes – nobodies – so that He would shame the somebodies. For He chose what is regarded as insignificant in order to supersede what is regarded as prominent, so that there would be no place for prideful boasting in God’s presence.” – 1 Corinthians 1:27-29 – The Passion Translation
‘In 2018 there will be greater demonstrations of how the Lord uses the things the world considers foolish, the unexpected things, the lowly to display His power, His Glory and restore the fear and awe of God to the Church and the world.’
This is part of an extensive message Lana published for 2018 on 3rd December which, as with all material she shares, is worthy of study and weighing and will appear in this blog’s next post.
