Signs and Wonders: The Fear of the Lord

Signs and Wonders: The Fear of the Lord

To be honest, I do not know where to begin with this blog, but I felt prompted to sit down and write about a glimpse of what is to come in this new era.

If you have been following my posts for a while, you will notice that I stopped using the phrase, “God is taking us into a new season.” No, we have stepped into a completely new era. Seasons come and go, but what God is now establishing through his ekklesia will remain and transform the world. Seasons melt away as you learn to live in oneness with the Father 24/7. They melt away as you simply lean into Jesus like John the Beloved (John 13:23) so that your intimacy with him gives you access to an open heaven and a land flowing with milk and honey day and night and night and day. It is flowing while you are awake and while you are asleep!

I have also stopped calling this new era “revival” and “awakening.” I do not have the right words yet to framework what God is doing, so I will say “it is revival and awakening, but it is more than that as well.” This new era is greater than a reformation. We are entering into an era where we do not have a framework for it. Hallelujah! 

The marker of this era is going to be an ekklesia that is governed by the Spirit of the fear of the Lord that will only do what they see the Father doing and will only speak what the Father is saying. We are moving beyond healings and miracles alone to operating in the awe and wonder of God. The church has become so focused on healings that we have dismissed signs and wonders and call them “spooky” or "demonic" when they happen. What the Lord is bringing his burning ones into is so amazing and intense, that many leaders (even ones prophesying about revival now) will call it witchcraft because it is far greater than anything they have seen. However, if they would actually read their Bible outside of the religious system that has been ingrained into them and lean into the Father to see his miracles, signs and wonders in scripture, then they would not call his signs and wonders witchcraft. Be careful what you mock and dismiss just because you do not understand it. The Pharisees did the same thing to Jesus.

It is going to begin looking like Acts 15:13 where people will sit in silence hearing and witnessing the signs and wonders of God. We will live in the ecstasy of God (2 Corinthians 2:13) and operate in terrifying, awesome acts of the Lord that will shake the heavens and the earth.

Every church system not made from the Lord is about to burn. Sunday morning Christianity is burning. A one man show running a congregation is burning. Church politics is burning. The leaders who put themselves “over” you instead of “with” you are coming down. Normal, dead, dry, religious meetings are burning. Literally, almost everything that you have been accustomed to as “church” is burning because it is a system of man and not of the Lord like you have been told.

Before you manifest in a religious spirit and you retaliate to this, tell me how any of the modern church looks like Acts? How does almost anything we do look like the ministry of Jesus? Where are the miracles, signs and wonders? Where are the angelic encounters as the norm? Where is the “breaking of bread daily” (Acts 2:46)? Where is the “equipping of the saints” (Ephesians 4:12)? Where is the raising of the dead?

Why do you keep choosing to go back into a religious system when God has called you to birth something new? You will NEVER birth what God has called you to birth if you are sitting under the false government of a religious system. You must sit under the government of heaven, choose the unknown path, and birth a new system according to the blueprints of heaven. It is time for you to go up into the mountain of the Lord to receive his strategies, blueprints, and plans. Stop praying “heaven come down” because He is calling you to “come up higher!” (Revelation 4:1). Almost every reformer and revivalist of old birthed a move of God outside of the church system because it could not handle what God was doing. This stands true today. You are called to be the manifest sons of God. That is your identity and function (Romans 8:14).

I will tell you what a dead, religious system looks like: 10AM (or 10:30/11AM) service begins with introduction music with announcements. For the next 45 mins (God forbid you go beyond that) you play outdated worship songs (outdated is not about the date it was created, although it can be; it is about if this is the sound that heaven is releasing today). Then a pastor will come in to take up the offering because it’s the next thing on the list to do. There will be a song during the offering, then about a 20-30 minute sermon. An altar call that no one responds to will follow, then everyone goes home the same as they came. If this is what you think “church” is suppose to look like, friend, you have been lied to. Most likely, this just described the church you go to. Sure, there may be trickles of God’s river that happen in these gatherings, but why be satisfied with trickles when you can have a flood? WAKE UP!

Tell me, how does ANY of this look like power from on high? How does any of this look like what Jesus and the Apostles did? Where in the world did we get the idea that we are suppose to hold “church services” instead of legislate heaven on earth as kings and priests of the living God (1 Peter 2:9)?

We are coming into a time where gatherings are going to be several hours long because the King of Glory is there releasing miracles, signs, and awesome wonders. We will hear manifestations of the sounds of heaven coming from the glory realm of our Father. We will see manifestations of angels and His glory light. The entire makeup of “church” is about to radically be changed. It has to change because it is dying. We are going to begin coming together in meetings to legislate from heaven down. We are seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:7) in order to govern and legislate his will onto the earth.

Everything that you read in Scripture is a doorway for you to step into and operate in. The Bible is not a dead book; it is an access gate to glory realm upon glory realm. The encounters you read about are there for YOU to encounter too. You have access to all of heaven and to the Father only through the blood of Jesus (Ephesians 2:18). Jesus wants to teach you to operate out of complete oneness in him. It is oneness with the Father that is going to bring in the harvest and rattle the cages of normalcy. It is being one with Him and in Him that is going to turn the world upside down!

WAKE UP! COME UP HIGHER! EAT THE MEAT OF THE WORD OF GOD! IT’S TIME TO COME UP, COME UP, COME UP INTO THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD! COME UP INTO MOUNT ZION (Psalm 24:3)!
