a prophetic word through Greg Austin, Cork Ireland 6th July 2004, published June, 2007. (This is a verbatim transcription of the word Greg received during a worship gathering in Cork, Ireland).
“Holy Spirit…. is talking to my heart and He’s giving me these words:
The changing of the guard is now. The changing of the guard is upon us. The changing of the guard that has been promised. The changing of the guard that some have seen. The changing of the guard that has been resisted. The changing of the guard is now. The changing of a guard is upon us.
God is realigning. He is realigning. He is realigning. The mighty are being pulled down. The humble are being lifted up. Those who have walked in quiet faithfulness; those who have walked in patience; those who have said, “God, You don’t need to use me, but if You choose to here I am.” God says, “Yay I will raise you up. I will lift you up, because in your quiet faithfulness have you shown Me your heart. You have proved yourself. You have proved your spirit; that it is meek and humble. That your desire is to serve and not to be served. To honour and not to be honoured.
So I change. I change, I change. Some places will be turned upside down, many will be amazed because out of what I do will rise the most glorious church Ireland has ever experienced in ALL of her history.
Behold I do a new thing. Have I not said it? Haven’t I told you? Have I not promised it? And now I will perform it for I am the Lord of Hosts.
Changing of the Guard
Get ready for it. Embrace it, receive it, accept it, walk in it. Many in this room will experience promotion not by man, nor by man’s institution but by My Spirit. I do a new thing. I do a new thing. I do a new thing. And I proclaim it now.
