The Lord is Gathering outcasts
And building SAFE-HOUSES

Psalm 147:1-2 (NASB)
Praise The Lord
For it is good to sing praises to our God;
For it is pleasant and praise is becoming.
The Lord builds up Jerusalem;
He gathers the outcasts of Israel.

Outcast: dâchâh – pushed down, chase, driveway (on), overthrow, outcast, thrust, throw down (Strong’s h1760)

I saw a whirlpool gathering and drawing together over Aiken SC (where I live), but feel this is a Word for the whole Body.
There were many that had floated around looking for and praying for revival, but who never felt like they fit in.
These ones have sort the Lord, remained true, and often tried to plant themselves. Some have even been hurt or shunned by those who don’t understand them. They’ve been alone, have been pushed down, cast out, chased out, overthrown, and driven out, or simply forced to leave.
But their desire for the Lord has remained true, and they have continued to cry out for revival, continued to serve – even in obscurity, continued to pray, continued to connect with the body. .

But the time has come. The Lord is gathering them up, and those who have kept their pure heart for the Kingdom, he is pulling them into SAFE HOUSES.
Many of you are strong and tested warriors, who have been tempered through many seasons, while some feel as though you’ve hung on by a thread. But what God has developed in you through the night seasons is about to be revealed.

I felt the Lord repeating to me I’M BUILDING SAFE HOUSES

SAFE-HOUSE
A safe house is, in a generic sense, a secret place for sanctuary or suitable to hide persons from the law, hostile actors or actions, or from retribution, threats or perceived danger.[1] It may also be a metaphor. (Wikipedia)

These gathered ones are being drawn into houses, church congregations and families that are safe places spiritually and emotionally. Others with the same desire and heart for Jesus.
Here they will find healing and protection, as they are snatched away from the enemies plans. Long time wounds, separation and weariness will be washed away.
They will also find a home.
These are also homes where the Father Heart of God is clearly heard and properly shared. Both in the prophetic word and power of God, but also in the lives, freedom and love of the body.
Here, gifts will bloom, be nurtured and enflamed once more. Passion will be restored and kindled. Faith will burgeon strong.

Safe house:  a place where undercover operatives may conduct clandestine observations or meet other operatives surreptitiously (Wikipedia)

These places of sanctuary and family will then become launching pads –
A place to Launch raids upon the enemy from a place of resources and safety.
Seemingly unremarkable homes are actually powerful staging grounds for assault, deep into enemy territory. These are churches, home groups, prayer groups, and gatherings hungry for revival.
Furthermore, they are apostolic sending grounds, where experienced warriors come home to rest and feed. They will encourage the family with the testimonies of what God has done, train up others, and finally be released once more to the next assignment-There they will gather, rearm and suit up for the next mission.
These are powerful, whole, and strong sons and daughters who will shine the light of Christ upon this earth. They will never travel alone, but are a part of a growing network of sons and daughters across the world.

Now is the time to gather. Now is the time to heal your wounds and join the Body.
Can you hear God’s clarion call?
