This post by Mark Mallett is a good one. I often receive words similar to his and when I read his writings, many times the Holy Spirit gives me a confirmation of his words: http://www.markmallett.com/blog/. For those who have not yet read his site - I highly recommend it and believe that his writings are of God. Personally, I think we are in a preparatory stage for a coming period of correction. I use the word correction because I believe, as children of God, that He disciplines us as any father would try to correct a child who has gone astray. We are already being purified, the Lord is strengthening our faith and pouring His Spirit on those whose hearts are open to receiving His gifts. God is good :)
Thank you, Lord, for your patience and kindness !
