The Lord woke me up with a rattling sound. Like the sound of the tail of a Texas rattlesnake rattling. I asked Him what He wanted to say about this sound and this is what He said:
“I am getting your attention for what I am about to do. When you hear the snake as he rattles his tail, you pay attention and begin to look for where that sound is coming from. Then when you spot the place where it is coming from and you generally will move. This is not a warning sound, this is Me getting your attention with the sound of rattling so that you will listen and look. I am about to do something NEW AND OUT OF THE BOX. So look and listen and be ready to move. I am rattling My people, and awakening them to what I am about to do before I do it. It is time for you to move, to be My move. You are about to hear the dry bones rattle. This rattle is My attention getter. There is a shaking, rattling and awakening I am doing in and for My people. Get ready, get ready, get ready!!!! LOOK, LISTEN AND MOVE!!!”
People of God, I love it. He is rattling us to attention. Why? Because He is ready to do something huge and He wants us to take Him out of the box. Get out of that OLD wineskin and get ready to receive the NEW.
Matthew 9:17 (NKJV) “Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”
Get out of those old wineskins. Get ready for the new wine.
Ezekiel 37:7 (NKJV) “So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone.”
God is rattling to get our attention and He is rattling to wake us up. He is rattling so we will look, listen, pay attention and move.
Revelation 3:6 (MSG) “Are your ears awake? Listen. Listen to the Wind Words, the Spirit blowing through the churches.”
Isaiah 43:19a (NKJV) “Behold, I will do a new thing , now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it?”
God is rattling to get our attention so we will KNOW it.
It is past time we take God out of the box that we have put Him in. A lot of people want God to move a certain way, answer how we want the answer to come and God is wanting to move how He wants to and give us HIS answer. If we want God to move in our midst, let's make room for Him to move.
People of God we are about to see the greatest move of God in the history of the Church. Let’s look and listen to God and move when He says move. It is time we BE the move of God. Let's stop waiting on the move of God, because He is always moving and let’s be the move and flow with Him. Let's perceive what He is going to do so that we can flow with Him.
Listen for the rattle. Some of you are going to be rattled so much and shaken so much by the power of God that you will feel
as though you have been electrocuted. You not only have to take God out of the box you have put Him in. You have to allow Him to rattle the cage open that you have been in. Get ready to be jolted out of your cage!!!!!! Your thinking is about to be changed. Your perception of God is about to be rattled and forever changed. Get ready, Get ready, He is on the move!!! It is time to shake, rattle and roll!!!
This is not to condemn or make you feel guilty. This is to spur you on to MORE, spur you into what God is about to do. Spurs are used for directing a move forward. Ha, God is about to spur you!!! It is time to MOVE forward and be the Move!!!!
