A Separation from Darkness and Compromise
First, in this separation season, God is looking for those who will completely separate themselves from all forms of darkness and compromise. Anything that grieves the Holy Spirit should also grieve us. The Lord is looking for those who are truly His.
It is critical, now more than ever, to be discerning and selective about what you allow into your life through entertainment, media, relationships and voices you listen to. The importance of this season carries weight both in the Kingdom of God and God’s will for His people and the earth.
I believe the Lord is about to reform and restore many people in this season in order to secure their foundation. We all have areas where we need the Lord to transform our minds and hearts. I believe God is going to refine many in this season in order to strengthen their foundation so that He can build upon what He has established in them. (Photo via Unsplash)
As individuals, we need to allow the Lord to set us apart for Himself in order to be completely separated from anything that is contrary or against the Kingdom of God. He is looking for a Bride that is holy.
Leviticus says several different times to “be holy because I’m holy.” In this season, God is purifying His Bride to make her holy, just as He is.
Ephesians 5:8-11 says, “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”
The truth of this scripture is a strong and timely charge to us as Believers in this season. Now more than ever, we must walk in intimacy with the Lord and depend upon Him for our direction and discernment as we navigate what He has for us.
A Separation of the Righteous from the Corrupt
The second application of this word is that in this season God is bringing separation in the “church.” I am not referring to the Bride of Christ or the true Church that Jesus Himself is the head of. I am instead referring to the groups of people that have called themselves the church, but practice religion and doctrine that is contrary to the Bible.
I believe we will also see a separation between those who are righteous and those who are corrupt that have been in positions of influence and power. We will see exposure of not only ministers, but also those in the media, business, and political realm. The Lord wants people to know who they can trust. Exposure is about to happen at a high level, and anything that can be shaken will be shaken. (Photo via Pexels)
In this season, leave compromise for good. 2 Corinthians 6:17-18 says, “Therefore, ‘Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.’ And, ‘I will be a Father to you, and you will be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.'”
Will you be one who will leave all of the worldly things behind and give yourself fully to the Lord and His call for your life?
Matthew 25:32 says, “Before Him will be gathered all the nations, and He will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.” We are in an hour where God is bringing a clear distinction between who belongs to Him and who does not.
God is about to build and manifest His Kingdom on the earth in a way that we’ve never seen before. We are in a separation season because there is an hour coming where God is going to move powerfully throughout the earth, and He wants to do it through you and me!
