Tear Down and Build Up

Call for righteous men and women to be placed in positions of power that have been corrupted by the politics of greed.

Posted on

The crumbling facade of Church business and politics is about to be fully revealed!

Now is not the time to be distracted by all the huffing and puffing that goes on, on Facebook. It’s a time for tearing down and building up!

I was sitting, just thinking about world events, about the filth and squalor of world politics, when The LORD spoke quietly to me.

He said simply, “Pull down — tear down!”

Then, after a very brief pause, He said, “Jeremiah!”

I hurried to Jeremiah 1:9-10 where I read this,

“Then The LORD put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and The LORD said to me: “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant.”

Then He showed me something outside our window! I saw a pair of pigeons doing their courtship dance.

Actually, the female sat watching while the male puffed out his chest and bowed and danced before her, obviously trying to impress her.

Just then, another female appeared, equally obviously determined to break up this little party! All three flew off and disappeared.

Now, what on earth have these two scenarios to do with each other?

First, The LORD took me to Jeremiah saying, “As you watch the various politicians fighting for position, for power, and for popular support, that is the time to act prophetically and tear their empires down, and to call down the Glory of God into the situation.

It will be the time to call for righteous men and women to be placed in the positions of power that have been so corrupted by the politics of greed.

That is the time to build up My People too, for they will need great strength to get through the coming shaking!”

I guess I understood what The LORD was saying, but I didn’t see the relevance of courting pigeons! The two scenarios couldn’t have seemed to be further apart!

The LORD, seeing my puzzlement, went on. “There are many situations about to be revealed of a corrupt or illegal ‘ménage a trois’!

Situations where cheating spouses are discovered and revealed, where double-dealing business partnerships are revealed and broken up, where political alliances are betrayed, revealed, and broken up!

Even ‘good Christian leaders’ will be revealed and exposed for their corrupt dealings in marriage, Church, or business!

The shaking continues, but it can be hastened by My People prophetically rooting out and tearing down the bad and building up both the good and The Remnant, who remain faithful and steadfast in their faith!

By so doing, you will pave the way for Revival and Recovery,” says The LORD.
