(A plumbline is an instrument to determine whether something is perfectly vertical (“upright”).  The Word of God is
the plumbline to determine whether we walk in righteousness.)

In a dream I had a vision of a plumb line coming from the clouds down to the earth. Then I saw God’s people,
bowing, humbling themselves before Him and then going into a kind of tunnel underground underneath the
plumb-line and coming out from underground on the other side of it.

In my dream the Holy Spirit explained the vision to me, saying that those who humble themselves (by repentance)
to the judgment of the plumb line and submit to align themselves under the truth of God’s Word and die to self,
will arise in resurrection power to do exploits for the Lord.

Psalm 97:2
Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.” - KJV

Amos 7:7-8
Thus he shewed me: and, behold, the Lord stood upon a wall made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in his hand.  And
the LORD said unto me, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A plumbline. Then said the Lord, Behold, I will set a
plumbline in the midst of my people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more….
” - KJV

Everything that we have built and are building is now up for testing by the plumb line of the Lord.  All of our walk,
our actions, choices, attitudes, words and thoughts are being measured by His righteousness. Only that which is
built on the foundation of the WORD will stand!  The hay and stubble will be destroyed by fire.

Isaiah 28:16-18
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, precious corner stone,
a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the
plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. And your
covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge
shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
” - KJV

Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,

We now need to take heed to truth of the Word of God as “it is written”.  Every prophecy and every revelation
(“rhema”, every teaching has to line up with His “logos” (written word).  God is speaking and we need to obey,
bringing also our thoughts and words in alignment with the truth in obedience to Christ. There is no time for
excuses to procrastinate or to compromise.

We have been hearing the words “JUSTICE” and “JUDGMENT” and this begins right in our own hearts the moment
we come into a crisis.  We always want to justify ourselves and prove our own righteousness, while quick to see
the hidden agendas of others and then judging them in our own pride.  This is the avenue of deception and God is
ready to lay His judgment to the plumb line that we use, ready to inspect the weights used on our scales by His
righteousness.  

Many excuse themselves and justify themselves by thinking that if they fast and bring God their tithes and
sacrifices they walk righteously, but God looks on the intents and motives of the heart, searching for those who
love Him enough to obey the law of His Word. (Psalm 51:17 “
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a
contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise
” - KJV)

It is amazing how easily our judgment can be impaired to suit ourselves and our own agendas.  These refuges
(hiding places) of lies will be destroyed by the judgment of the Lord and cleansed out.  It is time to inspect our
love walk and prove our love to Him by obedience to His every Word.

Could we all pray for open eyes of our understanding to “see” and open ears to hear what the Spirit is saying!
Could we pray for wisdom and understanding and discernment of the truth?  Will we be humble enough to bow
our hearts in repentance under the judgment of His Word?  Will we take the place of lowliness and apply judgment
to the self-life in order to fulfill the royal law of love to our neighbor, even as we love our self? Only then will we
rise up in resurrection power to bring heaven to earth in Kingdom power and see the greater glory outpouring!

Psalm 76:8-9
"
Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,  When God arose to judgment, to
save all the meek of the earth. Selah.
"


Psalm 94:15
"
But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it."

Psalm 101:1-2  
"
I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O LORD, will I sing.  I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when
wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
"

Psalm 99:4-5
"
The king's strength also loveth judgment; thou dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in
Jacob.  Exalt ye the LORD our God, and worship at his footstool; for he is holy.
"

Psalm 89:14
"
Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face."
