The Lord spoke to me recently in the early morning hours as
I was asking what He wanted to show me for 2024…and He
clearly said, “Stay above the fault line”. I had to study this as
it’s been a long time since I took science in school.
Found online: The Earth has four layers: the inner core, outer
core, mantle and crust. The crust and top of the mantle make
up another area called the "lithosphere," which acts like a
skin surrounding the Earth's surface.
The lithosphere, however, is not in one piece and exists like a
puzzle or series of fragments. These parts of the lithosphere
are not stationary and move slowly. These are called
As the tectonic plates move and shift past one another, they
occasionally bump or collide. This places stress on the
plates' edges. When the stress becomes too great, it creates
cracks called "faults." The point where these faults move
against each other is called the "fault line."Fault lines
represent fracture lines on the surface of the Earth where
rocks on either side of the crack have exhibited mechanical
movements to release accumulated strain.
The composition of Earth’s tectonic plates means that they
cannot glide past each other easily along fault lines, and
instead produce incredible amounts of friction. On occasion,
the movement stops, causing stress to build up in rocks until
it reaches a threshold. At this point, the accumulated stress
is released along the fault line in the form of an earthquake.
When there is too much friction between the fault lines,
energy is released suddenly, triggering seismic waves. If the
fault line is underwater it can create a tsunami.
On a personal level, Spiritual fault lines are beliefs about God
that divide humanity between a place of flourishing and a
place of brokenness. This can occur due to trauma in our
personal lives or even in our world. Any point of wounding,
trauma, and even our life circumstances can lead to great
seismic activity in our souls at any given time. Just as an
earthquake can occur suddenly in the earth, we can also
experience a spiritual earthquake or even a tsunami that we
don’t see coming.
Staying above the fault line in our personal lives means not
focusing on our natural circumstances, but instead, keeping
our focus entirely on the Lord….Who He is…What He is
doing…and Where we put our faith.
I heard: “everything that can be shaken”….. The eﬀects of
the shaking that is coming will be experienced in the seen
and the unseen realm.
In a large point of view there is a LOT of seismic activity in
the Spirit right now with friction between dark and light…and
it’s coming to a point of sudden quaking! Lord said not to
focus on all we feel is coming that may be harsh or diﬃcult,
for it is necessary for ALL things to be shaken. Focus on
what He is doing through all this shaking.
As quoted by a prophet friend of mine, David Carpenter, in
New York, “There are 7 major tectonic plates in the earth.
Beneath these plates are molten rock that create enormous
pressure. Tsunamis are caused by subduction movement of
these plates. Great shaking is taking place. Some is satanic
and trying to bring dominion on the earth. Some is the great
pressure of prayer and prophecy that has built our fervor and
expectation of a seismic shaking in the earth that will usher
in the greatest and final tsunami of deliverance
and transformation we have ever seen. “This will not be a season
where bandaids will be applied to bandaids. The Ekklesia has
directed its prayer. The tectonic plates are about to undergo
a shift, causing a great shaking, followed by the greatest,
most miraculous, transformational display of the Lord’s Glory
that we have ever seen.
Revival and displays of God’s Glory has always come in
waves or tides. These revivals have come in cycles, bringing
hope and change, yet they come and go. They have been
“measured” refreshing. But the tide is turning and what will
happen will be of tsunami eﬀect. It will impact the earth in a
way we have not seen.”
We are in a great place of expectation…like never before.
The Lord compared it to Elijah sending his servant to check
1 Kings 18:41- “There is the sound of the ABUNDANCE of
rain”……I feel like we are Elijah looking for that abundance of
rain, but all we are finding is a cloud the size of a fist….. but
we know something big is coming.
Reminds me of the groans and labor of creation in Romans
8:22- “We know that the whole creation has been moaning
together in the pains of labor until now….”
I woke up early another morning recently (in this month of
December), and as usual, I was surrounded by my 4 dogs.
Two laying next to me under the covers on the right, and two
behind me on the left. I couldn’t even roll over! I often lay in
bed and pray early in the morning when my house is quiet. I
said “Lord I might as well pray because I can’t move”…
and Igiggled.The Lord spoke to me about the situation with the
dogs. He not only speaks to me on a high spiritual level, but
He also speaks in ways that as a human, I can relate. Just as
a natural father might speak to his child.
He said, “As your dogs lie next to you, so it is with Me and
my children. The dogs lay next to you to protect you, but also
that you provide for their needs by protecting them. Thus it is
with me.” He said to stay close to Him right now and we will
be protected, and also be able to receive from Him for all our
needs. I heard, “Peace and calm at the side of the Father….in
the eye of any storm.”
Staying on the dog subject…..Then He said, “My people need
to stop licking their wounds” and need to get serious. My
people have whined and complained about frivolous things
for way too long now. It’s time to become soldiers.”
While praying for my children, I had a revelation about my
upbringing without a father due to divorce. Similarly, my now
fully grown son experienced a fatherless upbringing, and
now my three younger children are also without a father. The
parallel struck me deeply. I asked the Lord to define this for
me. Why had my family been continuously attacked?
He said, “This is the “Orphan Spirit”. I knew about the
Orphan Spirit but never applied it this way. He said the
enemy had done much damage in destroying families so that
children would not realize their inheritance and destiny, not
only in their natural family, but also in the Lord.
The Orphan Spirit can stunt a person naturally and spiritually.
It lies, and says God is not good, and is the opposite of Who
He really is. It convinces a person that all fathers are bad.
Anorphan mindset can completely ruin a person’s walk in life. A
lack of understanding of a father’s love can distort a picture
of God’s parental role making believers constantly fear
rejection, fearing being overlooked, punished and judged.
They have no confidence in God’s love and protection and
doubt that he is Good.
This is a year of us realizing who we are and operating in the
fullness of our identity. God is calling out this Orphan Spirit
and will bring much healing and restoration in the process of
As we begin a new year in 2024, we need to hold fast to
Hebrews 4:16- “Let us then fearlessly and confidently and
boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God’s
unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy
(for our failures) and find grace to help in good time for every
need (appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just
when we need it).
