7/23/09 upending those in the middle
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."
Some fellow in here. Let’s pray from the middle.
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.
Why are You upsetting us? Where are we going?
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
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.
I saw a water filter thing that we had to wait for it to
filter and move the water from one place to another.
I saw a bunch of butterflies all taking off.
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
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
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
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
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
Joel 3:14 NKJV
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision!
For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of
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.
