Num 16:41-43 NKJV Now it happened, when the congregation had gathered against Moses & Aaron,
that they turned toward the tabernacle of meeting; & suddenly the cloud covered it, & the glory of the LORD appeared. 43 Then Moses & Aaron came before the tabernacle of meeting.
“ I am escalating things in the world & there will be many suddenlies for many of you. Suddenly means that it is not something you can expect, but that suddenly it will just happen. I love surprises don’t you? & I have many surprises for My children. I have a whole storehouse of gifts waiting to be given out. I am a good Father Who gives good gifts to His children, am I not? Remember how as a child you anticipated what you might get for Christmas? That is how I want you to be – eager for the changes Your heavenly Father will bring! I want you to EXPECT great changes & blessings commensurate with those.
I’m not saying there won’t be a cost, but for many that cost has been paid, & you are just awaiting My timing. That timing is soon My beloveds so ready yourself for what is to happen soon. I also am eager to pour them out on you. But I see the beginning from the end. I see all the factors that you don’t see. So My timing is always perfect. It is hard as humans to wait, but your waiting produces perseverance .
Persevere: to persist in a state, enterprise, or undertaking in spite of counterinfluences, opposition, or discouragement.
I am longing for union with you more than you are longing for it My beloveds.
I am here, and see the growth of wickedness every day in the earth, but I also see those who have persevered under great pressures & suffering & I am pleased with those who are My own. I am please when you persevere in believing in Me despite all the unbelief, mocking & skepticism around you.
I am pleased when you think of others & not just yourself. I am pleased when you continue to give to the poor, despite the pressures on your own life. I know that life is hard. My Son was One acquainted with suffering & grief. He suffered greatly so that you could live life in freedom to be & do all I’ve called you to be & do. Take up the shield of FAITH & quench all the firey darts of the evil one.
He is trying to take advantage of the hour & to discourage & defeat as many as he can. So I am pleased when you resist the temptation to feel discouraged & instead turn on music, or play your guitar and sing praises to me & dance. Praise is a great weapon in My arsenal. I am raising up the tent of David so I WANT you to praise, & to sing, to worship , so that the enemy can have no hold on you. In ALL THINGS, praise Me & watch how the circumstances will turn.
I have a few surprises for the enemy also! And I am about to put them on display! SUDDENLY I will come down & you will see the desires of your heart as you worship Me in the beauty of holiness. Tumultuous times are coming & they too will come suddenly in various areas of the world. So PRAISE ME & do not let up your guard. Put on your armor daily. The blood of Jesus is a standard of glory against all the strategies of the enemy. Speak the TRUTH of My Word . Use it as a sword to cut through the enemy’s taunts.
I love you My beloveds & there is nothing I won’t do for those who love Me so long as your heart is melded with Mine. Take My hand as we walk through these days & times together. Like a good child, do not let go of My hand while crossing the roads ahead. I am WITH you. I am EMMANUEL - God with you! I will NEVER leave you nor forsake you! No matter what happens, My love never fails. NO matter how you fail, My love does not fail you. I am steadfast & persevering in My love for you,& I never let go!”

Num 12:4-6 NKJV Suddenly the LORD said to Moses, Aaron, & Miriam, "Come out, you three, to the tabernacle of meeting!" So the three came out. 5 Then the LORD came down in the pillar of cloud & stood in the door of the tabernacle, & called Aaron & Miriam & they both went forward.
1 Kings 19:2-5 NKJV Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, "So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time." 3 And when he saw that, he arose and ran for his life, and went to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there. 4 But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he prayed that he might die, and said, "It is enough! Now, LORD, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!" Then as he lay & slept under a broom tree, suddenly an angel touched him, & said to him, "Arise & eat."
1 Kings 19:13 NKJV So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle & went out & stood in the entrance of the cave. Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, "What are you doing here, Elijah?"
2 Kings 2:11 NKJV Then it happened, as they continued on & talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, & separated the two of them; & Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

Mal 3:1-3 NKJV "Behold, I send My messenger, & he will prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. Behold, He is coming," says the LORD of hosts.
2 "But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner's fire and like launderers' soap. 3 He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the LORD an offering in righteousness.
“I am coming again like a mighty rushing wind & nothing that is now in a certain order, will be the same after I come. Behold I am coming to make all things new, & every knee will bow, & every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is LORD OF LORDS. I will displace those who have sought to promote their own kingdoms, & I will make MY NAME preeminent! I will establish MY order, & MY KINGDOM above all others!
Do not be dismayed. Do not be discouraged. I am coming to break the chains that bind you! I am coming to raise up an army, & to walk with you during this last days battle! You will NOT walk alone. You will not suffer alone! You will do great exploits in My name & many will come to the brightness of My glory! Everything is being prepared. Heavenly emissaries are awaiting their orders. You are awaiting. The saints are anxious to see all that will be played out in these times. Many things have remained a mystery. But the days ahead will bring revelation of all that was meant by the prophets of old.
I am pruning & I am refining, & I am rerooting many trees in My garden. Nothing will be the same for any who are truly Mine! I will not disappoint you! I will not leave you out. I know your weaknesses & I know all about you. I know what the enemy has done to deceive & delude. But I am coming with power & might to set things in My order!
SUDDENLUES are upon you & will OVERTAKE you! You must walk in FAITH My children! SPEAK MY TRUTH! Do not give in to the wiles of the evil one who will set his face to dissuade you from the truth! He will bring such doubt & such condemnation to undermine what I have told you. He will try to confuse you & separate you from those I am calling you to be aligned with. He will send his minions to bring others NOT called to be by your side, just to try to confuse you. BUT I WILL GIVE you the keys to discernment that you will recognize his tactics & ways, & you will know what is from ME, & what is not.
Many of you are in transition. I have uprooted you from where you were standing. And I will re-route you to where I want you to stand. I have been tearing down those things that keep you comfortable in your old ways, that you would come into MY WILL & stand where I want you to stand within the ranks of My end times army.
Some who you thought were only privates will be generals. And some who thought yourselves to be generals will be called to serve others in a lower rank. I am not demoting you as much as causing you to rethink your PRIORITIES. The servant of God, must be servant to ALL. I will lift up the humble. But the proud, arrogant & boastful will be humbled & brought low in these times.
For many humbled by years of rejection, this sudden shift will catch you off guard. Do not be dismayed. Do not be surprised when I give you FAVOR. For I am changing the old guard & replacing it. I am mixing & I am fixing! I will use whom I CHOOSE! I will send whom I WILL! I am the head of My church! I ask you to listen for the still small voice & to obey ME. And if you are not listening, then you may hear the loud, audible voice. And it will SUDDENLY come to set things straight & in MY order.
I will apprehend the younger generation in startling ways. Do not think I have X’d them out! I will not pass by anyone. I will not abandon My turtledoves to the wild beasts of the earth. I will pour out My Spirit in unprecedented ways & SUDDENLY you will find yourself catapulted into a whole new realm of living & walking with ME. GET ready! GET READY!
EXPECT SUDDEN CHANGES.
Some of these changes will come in unusual ways. You may think you have lost everything, but in fact you will find yourself gaining everything that is eternally important. Job lost everything, but then regained DOUBLE everything he had lost.
WALK IN FAITH. WALK IN HOPE. BUT do NOT walk in lust of the flesh and the world. Seek ME and MY righteousness & all you need will be provided you.
I have SUDDENLY also loosed My judgments in the earth. The arrows have begun to be loosed. SUDDEN judgments will bring opportunities for My people to give & to be generous, & to share what they have with others. It will be an occasion for comforting those as I have comforted you. It will be occasion for sharing your testimony. Remember that I said, If you deny Me before men, then I will deny you before the FATHER. The days are here, & now are, when you will be tested on this. DO NOT COMPROMISE MY TRUTH! Look to Me for how to answer! Demonstrate My love to others & nothing will be impossible for you!
