A little over 18 months ago, the Lord began to speak to me about exposure. I recently revisited that word, and the Lord began to speak to me in a fresh way about this.
I believe there is about to be an exposure of evil and corruption in America and in the nations of the world. This exposure will take place in many realms of influence, including government, entertainment and media, professional sports and in the church.
As the Lord began to speak to me, He asked me this question, “Why do you think I’m bringing exposure?” My first thought was that the Lord wants to bring exposure to evil and corrupt people in order to remove them and instead place righteous people in their place. However, the Lord began to speak to me about His overwhelming love. God wants to bring exposure in order to bring restoration. God wants to expose what is evil and unjust in order to set the foundations of nations and people right.
God’s heart is always to restore and redeem. As God uproots or exposes anything or anyone, it is not to bring anyone to ruin. It is actually done out of the love of the Father. God’s desire is not to humiliate or destroy anyone. His heart is to bring both justice and restoration. The Holy Spirit always gives people time to repent and change privately before any exposure takes place.
When someone is exposed publicly, God wants to see that person or group healed. Many times when we see evil and corruption, we can forget that God wants to rescue, restore and redeem. If someone is exposed in one season, God desires to bring healing and restore them to a place of influence.
Romans 11:29 says, “For the gifts and calling of God are irrevocable.” Just because someone may experience failure in one season does not mean that their destiny is ruined or that God has not still called them for a specific purpose. There is always hope if we are willing to yield to God’s healing process of restoration.
When exposure comes to anyone, don’t cast judgment. Instead, pray with the heart of the Father and pray for their restoration. In order to restore or fix a foundation, a builder must first tear everything else away in order to repair it. Then, once the foundation is strong and secure, the builder can begin to rebuild and repair.
It is the same way with the Lord. I believe this is why God allows exposure to come—so He can rebuild our foundations. The exposure that is coming is so that God can put things right. It may be painful or frustrating in the process, but when you have a strong foundation with God, there is nothing you can’t do.
