I saw great waves of dust rolling over the land. It looked like surf but it was all dust. Blowing across the ground. It was like a huge dust ‘storm’ but it was not caused by winds, storms or tornados. It was from the earth. The waves kept rolling – they were no higher than buildings or any man-made construction and they rolled over everything that could be seen. It seemed like the dust was in the wake of angelic ‘hordes’ being released over the land, stirring everything and everybody, unsettling them. I saw many people being lifted and put down in different positions or places.

There was a stirring up of all that was ‘earthly’ and it was the pre-ordained ‘time’ for this to happen. Yet it was also a response to the prayers of the many saints who had cried out for healing in the land. The prayers were not being answered in the way they had thought and to some it seemed a terrible thing, even the work of the enemy. But it was the Lord’s mercy being released. All that was built on man-made structures was suddenly ‘seen’ and then blown away, leaving level, clear places.

I asked the Lord what it meant, and He said that His plans and purposes for time on earth now have moved into a new time. The planned time. Time had ‘slipped’. For this time, He had to have His people right – in the right place, with the right people and in right relationship with Him and the Body.

He said that many in this time will be repositioned or have radical changes in circumstances or situations. Old mindsets and even godly desires will be swept away to prepare for this time on earth – which is ordained from heaven.

After the dust had been stirred up there was a time of seeming silence and emptiness – but this too was the Lord and the emptiness was filled with a desire for God and His will alone – and nothing of the earth (dust).

Then a great silence, a stillness, a ‘moment’ occurred. The moment was for a response.

After the response, movement slowly began to be seen and people emerged. It looked like they were in Red Cross uniforms moving across a battlefield after a great battle. People of comfort and hope emerged first. Words of encouragement were bringing restoration and courage to rebuild out of the emptiness and devastation. Many repairers and restorers then appeared. The devastation was most seen in those who had been captive to religious structures which did not bring life – and many of these came from ‘surprising’ places.

I asked the Lord what people should do when the dust was rising, and He said “What do you do in a dust storm? You should cover your eyes, ears and mouths. This will keep them clear, so vision, hearing and testimony are not distorted. It will also stop premature words being released. Words will come later. After the dust has passed, I will move in hearts and speak my secret plans and mysteries, so the people might not be deceived or confused during the dust storm and will have courage and strength to move forward with me.

The prophets will speak when the dust has settled, for what is really happening during the dust storm is not to be spoken about. Much challenge, repentance and purification will take place in the dust. Much grace and mercy will be released. Hearts will be revealed.”
