Prophetic word released on March 29, 2021:
“For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14)
Get Ready for a Rude Awakening
I was up early a few mornings ago when God began speaking to me: “Here they come, Nate, here are My wild ones!
“I have opened the gates and I have decreed that the time is over for those who have been in waiting for this moment. The moment I have prepared them for is here, and now the earth is in for a rude awakening because My front-liners are stepping into the light. They are My movers and shakers and demonic-stronghold breakers, and here they are to usher in a season of the revealing of My glory through My Bride.
Undignified, Clothed in Glory, & Coming from the Wilderness
“Right now, I am bringing them out of exile. I am gathering them from all over the earth where they have been hidden and in waiting for a long season. They have wondered if I had abandoned them or if they would ever be used in the Kingdom because they were never fully accepted as a part of it, but right now they are emerging in the world’s greatest moment of pain and the Church’s hour of desperation.
“They are My undignified Davids that care more for My presence and My will and My plans than the wise plans of man. They aren’t politically correct or motivated by reputation, but they have only one thing in their sights – and that is worshiping Me and giving Me glory. Can you see them coming? Will you have eyes to see them? Will My Church accept them? Will they keep turning them away?
“They haven’t been given a red-carpet welcome, but they will be clothed in so much glory it will be hard to deny them anymore. The fire of My presence is all around them, and they aren’t here to play games but to carry the torch of revival and establish My Kingdom on the earth.
They Aren’t Rebels – They Are the Rescue Team!
“Remove the barricades and the gate-checks, for they aren’t the rebels that they have been seen as. They are, in fact, the rescue team! They didn’t quite fit the mold and they didn’t measure up to the standards of the institution, but they are sons and daughters who know My heart and know My house well. They have been in hiddenness for this very moment to bring HOPE to where many are prophesying hopelessness. They are the ones who have My eyes and see how I see. They know what is to come next. They aren’t swayed by temporary storms, but they are the ones that will point the way to where I am moving and what I am doing.
“Look now – they are peeling back the veil and lifting up the curtain. They are speaking into what is to come and they live from that reality. If you want hope again, watch where they are going! They are setting the stage for the new production and unraveling the new blueprints and plans I have given them.
Ushering in a Move of Holiness & Breaking Ties with Mixture
“I am using them to raise a new standard for My people. Where there have been foxes that have stolen from My people and their faith for generations, I am restoring faith. Where foxes have come and stolen the revelation of My abiding glory, My signs and wonders, and My healing virtue, they will restore them. They will point the Church back to true north and clear the overheads. They will come with their hammers and chip off the pieces of rock that have been stumbling blocks and not building blocks, hindrances and not stepping stones. They are coming as a sign of the new wine and the beginning of a new era of My Church.
“I am not shutting down church as we have known it, but at the same time, the Church will never be the same way it was ever again. What had to be shaken was shaken. What had to fall and die fell and died, and what hasn’t had My Spirit upon it is right now breathing its last. For I am jealous for My Bride to be the PURE Bride!
“What they thought was rejection from the mainstream culture was in fact My protection for an upcoming season, and that season is here now. They have been set apart so that they can usher in a move of My holiness and power; a holiness so mighty that it will reveal the thoughts and intentions of men, and reveal who is for Me and who is about building their own kingdom. This is a move of purity that is exposing the double-mindedness, duality, and mixture that has subtly crept into the hearts of Believers and disconnected them from My heart. (Photo via Pxfuel)
Bridge Builders & Restorers
“Their hammers will be mighty, and they will seem ferocious, but it isn’t out of rage but out of righteous conviction to set the record straight and RESCUE & LEAD the Church forward. In fact, I am right now baptizing them afresh with a love for the Church, in all of her expressions and parts, so that they won’t be the demolition team but the bridge-builders. Like Nehemiah, they will grieve that parts of the city are in rubble and they will build and restore what has been broken down.
“They will raise up other builders and teach them to build the new while still honoring what has been built before them. They will seamlessly connect the seasons and the moves of My Spirit and reveal the pathway forward for My pioneers to run in. For many have said, ‘They are against what I have built!’ but I have not raised them to tear down what I have given you to build, but to tear down the enemy’s work and add and increase what you have been building. I have given them an anointing to see the cracks in the foundations and to fix and address them.
Breathing Life Into Dry Bones, Broken Systems, & Burnt-out Movements
“And as they build, they will breathe life into the dry bones of dead and burnt-out movements that religion tired out and caused to expire before their time. They will be revivers of revival fire and they will cause fresh fire to enter those who have been barely flickering; they will get a second wind to finish the purposes I gave them to accomplish. Broken systems will be reinvented and reinvigorated, and My Spirit is going to cause wheels to turn where there has been no oil.
“They will especially revive the dead movements and dreams of those who were shipwrecked. They will cause hearts to start beating again in tune with Mine, and begin to burn with a love-sick desire where they have grown cold and deeply discouraged. In but moments, they will take the weariest, oppressed, and wounded of soul and cause their furnace to be ignited again.
“They will find the hurting and derailed fathers and mothers of previous movements and restore honor to them, purpose to them, and give them a reason to believe in the impossible again. They will unearth the gold in people; but to get to gold you need the hammer, not just water – the hammer and the shaking – but soon the gold emerges.
Confronting Giants That No One Else Will
“I have asked the Church, ‘Will you stand up and be a voice? Will you confront the opposition and advance the Kingdom, or will you cave in and either maintain or retreat?’ The intimidation and assaults have been relentless, but I have raised up a remnant who will not stand aside when evil is at their doorstep. This remnant will confront the giants that no one else will. They will be the Davids that will choose to fearlessly face the principalities in the land and call them for what they are. They will not water down the Gospel or sell out to win the favor or man, but they will bravely move in offense against the assignments of the enemy that have defied the Church.
“Innocent blood has been shed for far too long in the nations, and there has been but a few that have stood to face true evil and given their lives to see it overturned. But My wild ones will not be those who back down – no, they will be like Esther who chose to give her life to see every injustice overturned.
A Voice in the Midst of Fear & Spearheading Campaigns of Justice
“As they march into battle in places that none have dared to tread before, they will break open the way for the Church to gain back ground and advance where they have been slowly shrinking back. These wild ones will be like battering rams that break open the way, and will be the spearheads of justice that enter into new territory in which they have not had influence before. If you think that you have seen the positioning of My people in high places, wait till you see where I take them next. I am sending My reformers into the lion’s den and the leopard’s lair for the sake of the outpouring that is going to take place in the enemy’s own campground.
“These wild ones will speak when I tell them to speak and they will not have a religious filter that edits or politically corrects/adjusts what I ask them to say. They have not been tainted by the fear of man and they will simply SPEAK, and the word will go forth. As they speak it will set in motion a domino effect of courage in those who have been afraid to speak.
Wildfire Movements in the Most Unlikely Places
“They will leave all behind in this season to launch wildfire movements that have less concern for the tangible structure or program, but they will be focused on the people. They will have an apostolic anointing to build quickly and easily gain momentum, and I have given them favor to do it. It will look messy and foolish at the beginning but soon fire will spread effortlessly.
“And I will move upon those whom man would not choose. I will choose whom I choose, and I will move upon whom I move upon, and I am going to pour out My Spirit upon the most unlikely people in the most unlikely ways. So, get ready to see undeniable fruit from places that would offend the pious and self-righteous, because I have come for all, not for a few, and I will pour out My Spirit upon ALL.

Clearing the Air & Making Jesus the Main Thing
“I have given them an anointing that will be like a clear clarion call to the Bride, calling her back to first love, and it will clear the air from all noise pollution and the chasing of vain desires, and bring the hearts of My people back to Me again. Above all, My wild ones will offend the Church out of her idolatry of her own brands and reputation and cause her heart to return to Me. My wild ones will usher in a move of repentance that will cause those who have veered off course to correct their path, the lukewarm to run to Me, and those who have been chasing buildings and empires will forfeit them like crowns at My feet. They live for one thing and this is to point and lead people to Me…to reveal Me in the earth.
Opening Up a New Realm of Acceptance & Re-Activating Lost Encounters
“Their keys were stolen and it’s time they got them back! And I am using this remnant to remind the Church of what she has settled for in this season. Religion has caused My Church to forget how loved and accepted they are and the permission upon them to do what they have inside of them. But they (the wild ones) will usher in a new season of permission to those who were squashed and crushed under religious red tape and protocol.
“The gates of My affection will suddenly fling wide open for them and they will see Me not as a hard taskmaster, CEO, or head bishop, but as Father and friend, and suddenly every seed and idea inside of them that has been lying dormant will begin to germinate. Suddenly innovation and creativity will spring forth and hope-deferred will lift.
“When was the last time they boldly came to the throne? Religion has created a minefield of impossible hurdles to get to Me, but I am not like that. It has created a mindset of unworthiness that has stopped people from encountering Me and even longing for Me to make them feel known. To replace encounters, religion has instead made an intellectual idol out of Me and I am removing it from the Church in this season, and My wild ones will overturn those tables and restore My presence again!
Distributing Hammers of Reformation & Restoring the Voice of the Bride
“They will be the brokers of Heaven’s storehouse for this hour. They will be the ones who lead the Church back into My domain and open up the forgotten storehouses of access and authority which they have forgotten existed. They will take the empty-handed and hopeless into My house and put back hammers in the hands of reformers who had theirs stolen, songs back into the mouths of worshipers who were shut down, books and pens into the hands of the scribes, and restore the voice of the Church where she has been silenced and voiceless.
“At first, it is going to feel foreign as they hear the sound of their voices rising again and see the powerful impact of their mantles upon darkness and injustice, but this is the awakening of My Church in the revelation of who they are in Me!
The Convergence Season & the Legacy of Laid-Down Lovers
“They need to know that I am so proud of them. I know it hasn’t been an easy road to walk, and at times it has felt like I have abandoned them or dealt them an unfair hand, but NOW it will all make sense why I made them the way they are. THIS is the moment where every season converges together, and they finally see the purpose in the pain and the pressing that has turned into power and anointing to break yokes of bondage and set captives free.
“Watch them now, running out of the wilderness, out of hiding, out from behind the facade of other roles that were limiting them and keeping them at bay. Watch now as My wild ones begin to emerge from all walks of life and all streams. I can see the looks in their eyes as they are, right now, standing to their feet. This is worship to them, not a task. This is the life of laid-down lovers, not the objectives of a servant. These are My friends and My Spirit is in them, upon them, for this magnificent hour of the unveiling of the Bride, the great TURNING of hearts, the harvest at hand.”
“And to present her to Himself as a radiant Church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless.” (Ephesians 5:27)
“The entire universe is standing on tiptoe, yearning to see the unveiling of God’s glorious sons and daughters!” (Romans 8:19)

“Who is this coming up from the wilderness leaning on her beloved?…” (Song of songs 8:5)
“…You will be known as Repairers of the Cities and Restorers of Communities.” (Isaiah 58:12, emphasis mine)
