I felt lead to share this word for Iowa again in my blog so more people would be able to read it that may have not seen it before. Hear the word of the Lord.
April 11, 2015, Saturday, The Base, Apostle Greg Crawford
I hear the Lord say, Do not look to those far away to come and ignite the fire. For there will be some that will come and they will begin to ignite some fires, yes, but the fires will be short-lived. There will be some that will come and they will kindle their own flame for their own fire. And pay no heed to those, for those will die out as well. For I will raise up those within this state, says the Lord, that will be carriers of the flame and they will be the ones of fire that will go forth. And they will sustain that which I am about to bring forth into the earth. They have the investment of the land hidden in their heart. And they will sustain that. And they will fight for it, war over it and they will rejoice for it to see it come forth into fullness. So do not heed those that would come from afar, for they will only bring a certain degree of my flame. But I am, even in this hour, raising up those from within, raising them from the very dirt and the dust, says the Lord, to carry the flame.
And when my prophets come in the month of June, they will finalize that which shall be. For you think even in this hour that the new season begins in 7 days, but I say it begins even this night. For this night I begin to break forth the new season upon you, says the Lord. And when my prophets come in June they will finalize the season that is now beginning to break forth. And you will come into your destiny and purpose that you have longed for and struggled to understand. Many have even abandoned the destiny and purpose that lies before them thinking it is here or it is there, thinking they can go and be a flame in another place where they have no investment of the land in their heart. But I say unto you, for those who have remained steadfast and faithful, that have endured the shame and the chastisement of many, the ridicule and the rejection of much, I will raise you up to be the messengers of fire and flame and you will sustain that which is about to break forth.
For the next 90 days I will begin to formulate something in you of great substance and great wealth. Something that has been set aside, placed in your heart, hidden along the way that others have even tried to take and discourage you from seeing. But what I am going to do, says the Lord, no man will stop. And you have seen the beginning of it in other places that have longed for it. And you have heard the reports in other places and regions and said, “Oh God, why can it not be here? Why can it not be us?” And you have allowed the enemy to come and convince you to steal your inheritance from you, to cause you to be in faithlessness. But I say, only believe me, only believe me, only believe me. And I shall cause these things to come, says the Lord, only believe me. Let your doubt and despair be pushed aside. Do not be dismayed. Do not let hopelessness control your heart. Do not let your soul or your mind begin to dictate to your spirit. But let your spirit rise in this hour and see me in new heights and new ways. Let your spirit come before me and I will begin to tell you the mysteries of the kingdom that have been hidden for this age that is now breaking forth. For don’t you know the eternal realm is breaking in upon you? And that which is everlasting shall be everlasting and it will remain everlasting even when the temporal has disappeared. For that for which you are laboring and working for is that which is of everlasting, that which is the essence of who I am, the essence of my very being, my Spirit.
And I say unto you, Come, rise. Come and rise and take your places, Mighty Warriors, and as men and women of God that have been chosen for this time and season of the earth. For the assignment that lies before you, for the depths of what it would be. Your understanding does not have to be complete for my Wisdom shall make up the lack. The utterance of my Spirit will give the Breath and it will confront the hearts of men and they will turn in a moment of time. And you will see the wickedness of men’s hearts. But you will see the hope of that which is eternal land upon the wickedness in the heart and begin to dissolve it and remove it and cause it to spring forth in a new life.
There are many in this hour that I am pulling and dealing with. And I am looking and longing for the place where people have come after me and my Presence to such a degree that they will not allow anything to hinder their walk or their belief or their understanding of what I could do. I say, because of what I am about to do is bigger than what you have dreamed of, and it is bigger than what you think you can contain, and it is bigger than what you can plan for. For I say there is even coming a season where that which you have as a building and as a place will not contain what I am about to do. No matter how large you begin to grow and build and plan and scheme. For what I do will require you to step out into areas that are not even your very own. And I will cause you to go forth into places people will begin to call and an understanding into why they have called the outcome of what will be in the journey you are about to go on.
And the prophets that come will begin to make known that which is in my heart in a new way. And you will begin to see things and your faith begin to be ignited. And it will pull others in like a big vacuum and a whirlwind. And the fire of the whirlwind will come and it will begin to burn the dross and the chaff out of people’s lives. And, even as tonight, out of your very heart there is beginning to be a burning of the chaff that is there that lies within. There’s a burning of the dross that has risen to the top and is skimming off. There is coming the refiner’s Fire and the Fuller’s Soap. And I will cleanse the outside and cleanse that which is within. And there will be purity in my house once again and holiness will be established. For these are the things I am beginning to bring forth in the earth. And this is what will cause the outcast to come. This is what will cause the ones of hopelessness to come because they will see the purity that is upon my people and they will know there is hope once again. They will know there is a God in the earth that is concerned with the affairs and the intentions of men’s hearts. There is a God that has answers and I will be the answer for them. It will not be you but it will be me. And I will bring that which is eternal into their heart. And the joy of salvation will begin to spring into the earth once again. And the harvest will come forth and it will not be lost. For it will be brought in, and it will be thrown into the wind, and the chaff will blow away. And the Refiner will come and purify what remains and the end will be.
♪ For I say it is a season, it is a season to call forth that which has not been seen. It is a season to call forth that which you have only dreamed of. It is a season, a season to call forth with the sound of heaven in your voice. It is a season that I shall do things that you have never even dreamed of or thought of or even considered. And I will become your God in a new way, a new and living way, and it will even overtake you at times and you will not know what to do with my Spirit resting upon you except to yield and to give in and say, “Yes, God, here I am. Send me.” ♪
For I say, this is a season of something new coming. There are some even in this room, says the Lord. You have not had your encounter with me that has shifted your heart. I say, I am coming for your heart to encounter you that you could encounter me. Just pursue me a little longer. Pursue me a little deeper. Pursue me just a little more and I will come in a very unexpected way. You will see that I have come into your life and the encounter will begin and the understanding will come and Wisdom will set in. For those who will carry this flame will have my Wisdom as their portion. My Wisdom will rest upon sons and daughters. It will rest upon fathers and mothers in new ways.
