MASSIVE "SHAKING" of LEADERSHIP
-by Andrew Strom.

This week we re-published Bryan Hupperts' classic word -
"RETAKING the SHIP." It is all about Jesus taking back control
of His wayward church. I believe we have now entered this very 
hour. We are going to see Jesus violently re-take His church - 
and I believe He will use the 'word of the Lord' to do it. -Prophets 
and messengers speaking a piercing, "shaking" word. God will 
take back His own Body with great violence. This 'Shaking' has 
already begun.

I am sorry to be so "blunt" in this email, but I believe that these
things sadly need to be cried aloud. 

Here is the sad truth of the matter:
We are about to find out if today's "top apostles and prophets"
are the real thing or not. If so then God will defend them. If not,
He will take them down. He cannot have His church guided by
blind shepherds. There has been a lot of "presumption" in the
Body. The title of "apostle" has been claimed too readily by
too many. This is utter arrogance if it is not by God's specific
command. We are about to find out who gained their title and
position by "presumption" and who is the real deal.

I believe we saw the beginning of this at Lakeland. Just a few
weeks after the top "apostles and prophets" of the Charismatic 
world got up on stage to endorse that movement, we saw the entire 
thing begin to crumble and fall apart - to the great embarrassment 
of all. Do I believe that God deliberately waited for those big leaders 
to endorse that thing before pulling the rug out from under it in such 
a public way? -Yes, I do. I believe He was showing that a lot of 
these men and women have very little discernment - and simply 
do not belong as leaders over His church. It is the first time I have 
ever seen God turn on His own leadership like that, and I believe 
it is only the beginning. We are about to see a whole lot more. 
God is coming to set order in His house.

"Now there was a long war between the house of Saul and the
house of David: but David waxed stronger and stronger, and the
house of Saul waxed weaker and weaker..." (2 Sam 3:1). 

This is exactly what we now see playing out, I believe. It is the
very process prophesied in the Scripture- "The kingdom shall be 
taken from you and given to another, bringing forth the fruits 
thereof". God will not have blind shepherds leading His sheep
into disaster after disaster, fiasco after fiasco. He has had
enough of deception holding sway over His church. This "changing
of the guard" is going to take place at every level - from local right
up to international. Watch for it. It is already underway. 

The time has come for the good shepherds - the "Davids" to arise -
prepared for years in the wilderness for this time. From now on,
expect to see the house of David grow stronger and stronger, 
and the house of Saul to grow weaker and weaker. The Lord 
Himself is taking the field - to fight on behalf of Truth. And woe
betide those who stand in His way.

So what about you, my friend? Are you willing to take part in
this process of Jesus taking back His Church? Do you realize
that it is through the 'word of the Lord' that He will be doing this?
Are you willing to be a mouthpiece for the King? Do you have
the "daring" that is required?

If ever there was a saying that applies to this situation it is this-
"WHO DARES WINS." I have written about this before. Such 
boldness is simply a "must" for the hour we are in. Will you be 
such a one who DARES, my friend? The hour for reckless courage 
is upon us. Your long years of preparation have not been in vain.
Stand up and speak the word!
