Recently as I was seeking the Lord, I heard Him say, “My judgments and justice are being loosed in the earth.” Holy Spirit immediately brought to my mind these two scriptures:
“Of the increase of [his] government and peace [there shall be] no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.” (Isa 9:7 KJV)
“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.” (Jer 23:5 KJV)
As I meditated on this, I saw an old fashioned fruit cart with handles, filled to nearly overflowing with apples stacked in precise order. Then I saw it lifted up by the handles and overturned. I heard the Lord say, “I am upsetting the apple cart.” I asked the Lord what this means.
I heard by the Holy Spirit, “The carefully laid plans of the enemy are being overturned” – the building of foundations, structures and networks so painstakingly thought out and designed so as to seem unbreakable. Even as the people came together to build the Tower of Babel, to build a tower to heaven, glorying in their own sufficiency and desiring a name for themselves. The king of pride is still active today and he has many puppets, but his days are numbered!
I heard, “Watch and see as I shake and the apples come tumbling down.” God laughs at the plans of His enemies (Ps. 2), for His word does not fail (Is. 55:11) and what He has ordained shall be established (Lam. 3:37).
You will not lack!
The enemy is using the world’s system to foster fear in nearly every realm. Recently, the focus has been lack of supplies, but the Lord says, “The supplies of the enemy shall be cut off, but I have limitless supplies for My people. I bring the rain and provide the seed and I will bring the answer to every need. Do not fall into the enemy’s trap – I have My ways and you will not lack. The world is in turmoil, in times of trouble, I will turn their fortresses into rubble. The enemy’s cart I am overturning, don’t let your mind in fear be churning; keep your faith strong and your love for Me burning. Do not let fear take hold, these things I have foretold, lay hold of My faith and you will be strong, and be bold.”
Divine interception, exposing deception
Apples symbolically represent the fruit that Adam and Eve partook of through the deception of the serpent. Often, in the arranging of apples for purchase, they are carefully positioned to look enticing, with the underside hidden from view. They are often polished and coated with wax to make them shiny and more desirable. In the same way, the enemy uses his subtle methods of craftiness to hide the underside of his temptations, disguising the reality that deception is designed to kill, steal and destroy what God has purposed.
Holy Spirit brought a picture to my mind of a wax museum, and the words dead men walking. I heard, “For the enemy has brought death and destruction, desiring to destroy generations, but My justice is coming to every tribe and nation. No longer will they feel they are a people forsaken, for I am bringing a mighty shaking, those dead men walking will quickly awaken. You will hear the sound of repentance in the land, a reviving of dead bones for My Kingdom is at hand.”
“I am overturning the apple cart by divine interception, exposing deception and bringing right perception. Watch and see a mighty deliverance from strongholds of wickedness! Many shall turn from darkness to light as I restore accurate spiritual sight. Your prayers have been heard and the verdict rendered, justice and recompense shall be tendered.”
“I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no [more], until he come whose right it is; and I will give it [him].” (Eze 21:27 KJV)
Even in the midst of all the darkness that we see, God is moving mightily, setting up His Kingdom. Do not be dismayed; stay in faith and keep advancing His Kingdom. Watch and see; expect swift and sudden movements of His hand in the earth as he upsets the apple cart of the enemy’s kingdom!
“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, [but] it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.” (Dan 2:44 KJV)
