rhema 7/23/09  upending those in the middle


HEARD:  Separated.  My price. 


2 Cor 6:16-18  NKJV

And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:    "I will dwell in them   And walk among them.  I will be their God,  And they shall be My people."     17 Therefore     "Come out from among them   And be separate , says the Lord.  Do not touch what is unclean,  And I will receive you."     18'I will be a Father to you,  And you shall be My sons and daughters,  Says the LORD Almighty."     


HEARD:  Some fellow in here.  Let’s pray from the middle. 


PIX:  I saw a congregation of people and looked at the middle section in the church. 


APPLICATION:  The moment I saw the middle section, I realized the Lord was talking about those fence riders who are choosing the middle ground of compromise and not willing to make their decision to stand for righteousness and the Word of God in their lives, their votes, their choices.


HEARD:  Why are You upsetting us?  Where are we going?


PIX:  I saw a large executive desk that had been standing up on its end, be laid down into position on all 4 feet.


INTERP:  We were upended from our rest and left standing for a season.  This allowed all the loose and shakable things to fall away.  The Lord is going to put us back into our resting place to be planted and established.


Heb 12:27-29 AMP

Now this expression, Yet once more, indicates the final removal and transformation of all [that can be] shaken — that is, of that which has been created — in order that what cannot be shaken may remain and continue. [Ps 102:26.]  28 Let us therefore, receiving a kingdom that is firm and stable and cannot be shaken, offer to God pleasing service and acceptable worship, with modesty and pious care and godly fear and awe;  29 For our God [is indeed] a consuming fire. [Deut 4:24.] 


I remember seeing a bed mattress do that same thing, years ago and I had heard the word, upended.


Upended = Turn over, flip over, over turn.


HEARD:  Patience.


PIX:  I saw a water filter thing that we had to wait for it to filter and move the water from one place to another. 


HEARD:  Abasement. 

PIX:  I saw a bunch of butterflies all taking off. 


HEARD:  Gentle. 




James 3:17-18  NKJV

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. 18 Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.


Titus 3:2 NKJV

Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work, 2 to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility to all men.


2 Tim 2:24-26 AMP

And the servant of the Lord must not be quarrelsome (fighting and contending). Instead, he must be kindly to everyone and mild-tempered [preserving the bond of peace]; he must be a skilled and suitable teacher, patient and forbearing and willing to suffer wrong. 25 He must correct his opponents with courtesy and gentleness, in the hope that God may grant that they will repent and come to know the Truth [that they will perceive and recognize and become accurately acquainted with and acknowledge it],  26 And that they may come to their senses [and] escape out of the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him, [henceforth] to do His [God's] will.


1 Peter 3:4 AMP

But let it be the inward adorning and beauty of the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, which [is not anxious or wrought up, but] is very precious in the sight of God.


1 Peter 2:18  AMP

[You who are] household servants, be submissive to your masters with all [proper] respect, not only to those who are kind and considerate and reasonable, but also to those who are surly (overbearing, unjust, and crooked).


WISDOM:  The sons of God are called to be gentle peacemakers.  Those who are negotiators, middle men, bridges for others, peace makers need to keep watch on their souls, mouths and decisions, lest they be swept into the middle road of worldly compromise.  They are not called to be peacemakers through the flesh and in carnal ways, but through His Spirit and power of righteous positions.


The Lord is moving the earth through the valley of decision, where people are being corralled to make decisions.  He would rather have hot or cold, rather than lukewarm. 


All that needs to be removed will fall away and His people will be left with humble and gentle spirits, having been transformed into Jesus’ image.  This is a time to be humble and abased, patiently allowing our circumstances to bring us into alignment with the Lord’s image.



Joel 3:14  NKJV

Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision!  For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.


1 Kings 18:22  NKJV

And Elijah came to all the people, and said, "How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him." But the people answered him not a word.
