Fran Steinke has supplied the following concerning a 'shaking' which she felt the Lord speaking to her about at a 'prophetic' conference in mid-October 2014
Ed caveat: It is up to the reader to exercise his/her own discernment in testing all of these things before the Lord. See also 'Footnotes'.
While attending a meeting last Sunday, October 5, 2014, I received an open vision from the Lord. As I began to lay aside every care and enter into worship, the spiritual realm suddenly opened before me. In that moment, I saw that an enormous wave, or season of shaking, is coming upon the church. I watched, as everything and everyone shook until a separation occurred.
I could see that this shaking had caused a clear separation from everything that is not of Him. Nothing could be hidden—all was brought into the light and revealed. I could see that everything that could be shaken was being shaken. I sensed that we could not prevent this from happening. And, I knew beyond any doubt that this shaking had been initiated by the Lord, Himself. Somehow, I knew that the purpose of this shaking is to purify us and to purify the work of the Lord for what is to come.
As soon as I understood these things, I was reminded of the Scripture in Hebrews:
“See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven. Whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.”
Now this, “yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.”
(Hebrews 12:25-29 NKJV)
I saw works and ministries being dismantled, and then, put back together by the Spirit of the Lord. Some works and ministries were being replaced. Somehow, I knew that what was being replaced could not be repaired and added no real value to the body of Christ.
As I continued to watch, I saw the body of Christ come into a greater measure of light and revelation of the Word of God and of the purposes of God. I could see that this shaking had caused the scales to fall from their eyes. I watched, as individuals unconditionally surrendered themselves and their ministries to the Lord. As soon as they did this, the Lord gave them a greater measure of light and understanding of Himself.
This brought about a new fiery passion for the things of the Lord. Somehow, His truths had been re-ignited within them. They began to realize who they really had become when they first became born again. This revelation changed everything—now, they saw everything through the truth of the Word of God. I could see that these truths had been so ingrained in them that they could never be taken from them.
I watched, as the church fell in love with Jesus, all over again. And, the church seemed to fall in love with Him over and over again, as He continued to reveal more of Himself to them. I saw the church truly embrace the purity of the oil and the wine as they began to recognize and understand its value. And, I watched as the church had been transformed by the power of the Spirit to such a degree that it began to walk in the manifest presence of the Lord and interact with the kingdom of God on a regular basis.
As I continued to watch this scene unfold, the Lord spoke to me and told me not to be afraid – that it is out of His great love and mercy and grace He is sending forth this shaking. And, that this shaking is necessary to purify us so that we will be able to manifest the glory of the Lord during these last days. He emphasized that we have nothing to fear and that we could trust Him to bring us into this place of deeper intimacy, with Him.
When I had finished recording what the Lord had shown me, I couldn’t help but praise and thank the Lord for His faithfulness and for His love for us. In that moment, I knew that He would never leave us or forsake us – not even for a moment!
