Isaiah 2: 17-22
17 And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. 18 And the idols he shall utterly abolish. 19 And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. 20 In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; 21 To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. 22Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?

Isaiah 3:1-7
3:1 For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water. 2 The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, 3 The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator. 4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. 5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable. 6 When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let this ruin be under thy hand: 7 In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be an healer; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people.

In that day, has arrived. Yea, it is even this day and this time. I am going to shake everything that can be shaken. Then will come the breaking, and then the making. No longer can I wait for My people to do what is right in the sight of their God. So, I will make things so uncomfortable that they will either move into the glory of My majesty, or they will fall by the wayside.

I will no longer tolerate those that are proud, haughty and arrogant. I am going to humble many, and they will turn and know the fear of the Lord. I am raising up those that are humble before Me, but bold before men. And these will not touch My Glory with pride, haughtiness, or arrogance, but through them I and I alone will be exalted. And great shame will fall upon the proud, haughty, and arrogant as I expose their purposes and their motivations.

I breathed life into the very being of man, and it was the breath of God that caused man to rise up from dirt. But, now this forward generation has forsaken the Lord their God, their maker. So, fear of Me will befall these, as I expose their self-righteousness, which is as filthy rags before Me.

Oh, man has come to worship money, and My church is filled with those that are driven by greed and lust. But, now in this day, I will even cause them to despise that which has become their God, and they will weep and mourn over that which they have done. When I remove the veil from their eyes, and when I expose to the world the spoils of My people that they have hoarded up for themselves. And they will loathe that which they once lusted after, and that which has become their God. Watch now as I tear down the monuments that men have built for themselves, and to themselves.

And there will be no word of God through these, and there will be no anointing. My Spirit has been grieved by man, and I will remove Myself from their presence, and there will be no move of My Spirit in their presence, and no anointing to break the yokes. And I will even caused them to be will be replaced by babes and children to rule over them. I will confound the wise with these, and make all their knowledge even look ridiculous in the eyes of the people. Out of the mouth of the babes will come perfected praise, and it will rise to the heavens, and it will move My hand, and it will move My heart. I will be moved by it, whilst the others will try to cast mountains into the sea, and nothing will move, and nothing will happen.

Children will rule over them, for these that are as little children shall inherit the Kingdom of God. They are totally dependent upon Me, can do nothing, nor say anything unless it comes through Me. They believe that all things are possible with Me, and because they have child like faith, they will have no limitations and no boundaries. They know that they are void of sufficiency, and that I am the all-sufficient one.

And because of the falling of the idols, and because of the removal of the word, and the water these will begin to blame and accuse each other for the things that are going to befall them. There will be great dissension among them, and they will destroy each other because of the words of their mouths and their doings. I will need not bring destruction upon them for they will destroy themselves. One pitted against another, and all pointing their fingers in the face of the other.

No longer will man promote man into positions. Because this is in that day, people will not want to be in positions or promoted by man, because of the fear of the Lord. For they will see and they will know that I the Lord God, have caused these things to happen, and have allowed these things to be exposed. And My fear will rest upon My people, like a cloud rests upon the top of a mountain.

Rejoice Oh Zion, for you God comes to rule and reign in the midst of His people. And both those near and far will know of, experience, and even see the fear of God return. And it will rest upon the people, and rest upon the land.

Watch as I arise to shake terribly the earth, and as man tries to hide himself for fear of their God and the glory of His majesty.
