From the desk of Steve Shultz:
There has been a theme as of late with prophetic voices speaking of "shakings" happening throughout the earth. God is moving and transforming the spiritual climate around us as well as you'll read about in John Mark Pool's latest word "It's Transformation Time!"
John Mark recently had a profound heavenly encounter in which he was shown some deep and revelatory things to come. There is much in here so I would encourage you to read it carefully, and make sure to forward on to others as well.

Fire, Wind, Shaking - It's Transformation Time!
Malachi 4:6 (NASB) He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.
God is love, so reconciliation and complete transformation are His focus. When Jesus came to earth and completed His earthly assignment in the flesh and Spirit, God kept His Word of completely transforming all that was lost back to relationship with Him. You can be assured that in a world reeling in a backdrop of turmoil, this is the day for Christians to become the means of reconciling the lost and hurting back to the Father's heart.
A Memo From Heaven
Recently, I had an encounter that has transformed the message of my heart to release this word from God to America specifically, and to all other nations.
I was visited in the middle of the night by an angel. As I sat up, awakened from a deep sleep by a nudge at my feet, I noticed a very bright light and then a form of a heavenly being standing at the foot of my bed. He was very stately and dressed in royal apparel of brilliant white and was holding a glowing memo from God in his hand. He held the memo right in front of me, so it was simple and easy to read. I asked him who he was and he said, "I am a messenger from the throne of the One you love; I am the Angel of Transformation."
He had my full attention and I thanked Him for the memo. He then said, "Read it aloud to me now!" I quickly obeyed and boldly spoke the following four words as the memo came alive.
As I read the word FIRE, the letters were literally on fire and were crackling as if they were burning. Next, when I read the word WIND, the letters were waving and moving as if wind was blowing them. Then when I spoke the word SHAKING, it began vigorously shaking on the memo. Finally, when I spoke the word TRANSFORMATION, the letters started glistening and sparkling with the most brilliantly golden, shimmering, glorious light.
When I finished reading these four words to the Transformation Angel, He said, "Deliver this message wherever you go!" Suddenly the angel vanished and I sat pondering this simple message. I was immediately compelled to write this "Memo from Heaven" down and fell back to sleep.
Later the same morning, the Lord drew me into my "secret place" to write more about this. While seeking more revelation from God, I intently searched each word. Then the words again came to life and had additional new messages that were "linked" from the glory realm of Heaven.
Every time I spoke or wrote the words of the memo, a revelatory meaning was etched by holy FIRE and burned into my heart. God revealed His motivation. He wants to share His first desire of His passionate love to all the people of the whole world that He sent His Son Jesus to transform.
The Lord told me, "The fire of My desire is to see My people restored to My heart." He spoke in that clear, small, still voice that He wanted His own creation longing for and desiring Him the same way He desires them! Abba Father revealed Himself and is making sure this love note is delivered to all people. God is saying to us that this fire is the passion of His heart for His creation and His desire for intimacy with them, to burn into the hearts of all His children that He is and forever will be LOVE strong enough to transform even death to life! Nothing is impossible for God!
The vision of flowing letters in the word WIND on the memo is forever etched in my heart. Each letter blew as if by a strong wind released from the Holy Spirit during the Angel of Transformation's visitation. God highlighted wind to me as "Ruach (Breath of His Spirit) wanting again to 'breathe His refreshing Spirit and new life into all lost or discouraged hearts.'"
Genesis 2:7 (NASB) "Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being."
The Lord emphasized to me that His breath of Holy Spirit is more than enough wind of transformation to turn this nation back to His heart now. We must experience and activate the Holy Spirit breath of anointing to release God's holy breath of love to the many hurting people. As these people realize what has been missing in their lives, they will begin to be led by the Spirit of God and will be prepared to receive the transforming breath of God's Spirit.
The Lord reminded me of the prophet Ezekiel's vision in the valley of dry bones in Ezekiel 37:5 (NASB): "Thus says the Lord God to these bones, 'Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life."
Part of the limping Body of Christ has been breathing in the toxic breath of the enemy's lies for too long. We decree these deceptive toxins purged and cleansed from the Body of Christ in Jesus' name!
Today, filled with the powerful "breath of the Spirit of the Living God," we decree the transforming power of Christ's life and breath to fainthearted, discouraged, or lost people.
In a vision the word SHAKING came clearly again to me, reminding me of these verses, "For thus says the Lord of hosts, 'Once more in a little while, I am going to shake the heavens and the earth, the sea also and the dry land. I will shake all the nations; and they will come with the wealth of all nations, and I will fill this house with glory,' says the Lord of hosts" (Haggai 2:6-7, NASB).
When I read this passage, the wind of anointing started shaking and reverberating in my heart. I can literally feel the Father's heart beat in concert with His desire to bring people back in relationship with Himself. It will be the most powerful "awakening" move of God people have ever experienced. Rather than allowing a flood again like the one that destroyed all living creatures, this time God is using His Word to shake the nations back to Him.
God is fulfilling His heart's desire for His people to seek intimate fellowship with Him. More Israeli people will come home to the Father by a massive acceptance of Jesus Christ, Yeshua Ha'Mashiach, as their Lord and Savior.
This shaking will rivet this nation and change the face of the globe in a short period of time, beginning with all the Middle Eastern countries. Israel is a key to our nation and the world being shaken back to our Father's heart at this great season of major awakening. This shaking will not be stopped by carnally-minded people or the enemy's deception. This shaking will "shock our hearts" back into perfect rhythm with our Creator.
The entire world has already experienced much unpleasant shaking; the shaking soon will become an "earthquake of the Father's wind of the Spirit." It will shake America and the whole world to its knees for completely repentant hearts turned back to our Lord God!
The Lord etched into my heart that His desire was to restore that which was lost and to have His people become transformed into His image like pure gold. We must focus upon the desire of God's heart and leave our own humanistic thinking and carnal minds out of the equation.
Romans 12:2 (NLT) Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
This time the awakening will cause a major worldwide global transformation and many nations will begin to turn to the Lord in a single day!
The Father's word TRANSFORMATION highlighted the sparkling, new, heavenly gold that I had seen in the memo from the Transformation Angel. This beyond-earthly, pure-gold hue represents the totally changed hearts turned back to the Father that were purified and freed from any defects of this world.
As I pondered this word "transformation," the Father spoke gently to my heart that He has given us the ability not only to be free from all sin but also to move us into the continual purification growth process of being transformed into His image – a "smelting" process that takes each of us into a new level of being transformed from "glory to glory."
2 Corinthians 3:18 (NASB) But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.
So all of us with removed veils (through the Blood of Jesus) can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord – who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like him as we are continually being "transformed" (changed) into His glorious image.
The Lord wants the redeemed followers of Jesus to become mature in the "refiner's fire," so when we offer His love to those desperate for TRUE LOVE, they will see through our lives the image of our Abba Father as we become fully engaged in our assignments.
This is a different kind of transformation, one like never before in history. I can still hear that piercing breath of God's voice penetrating my being with these words, "As in the days of Esther, you, the Bride of Christ, were changed to be a transformer for 'such a time as this.'"
2 Corinthians 5:15-20 (NLT) "He died for everyone so that those who receive His new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them. So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know Him now! This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to Himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to Him. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, no longer counting people's sins against them. And He gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ's ambassadors; God is making His appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, 'Come back to God!'"
It's Transformation Time
The Lord sent the Angel of Transformation to awaken us from sleep, to give us the message of activation of our lives, to genuinely change (transform) us into the image of the heart of our Father for the entire world to desire Him. As we adhere to our "processing" journey of becoming more like Jesus, then we offer Messiah Jesus to hurting people, demonstrating that Father's righteousness is ours through all Jesus already accomplished.
We have a perfect love letter from Heaven through Jesus given to us because of the ultimate price He paid for our transformation. In this love letter is the WIND of the anointing of the Father, now blowing a fresh message of His heart of holy FIRE.
The SHAKING by God's Word is from His heart to ours so we become transformed into His image and begin to be the true messengers of the ministry of reconciliation! Today is the transforming "Day of Salvation!" It is our time to be transformed and let God use us to transform our family, the nation, and the world. It is TRANSFORMATION time!
