A Message of Hope and Encouragement

The Lord wanted me to share this message of hope and encouragement to His people. Received this morning.
“My Kingdom is here now. I have come to bring peace to all the nations. But a great shaking must come first. Kingdoms will fall, nations will topple. This is what must be done.
I AM coming to restore justice and peace to the lands. My peace, that passes all understanding. The enormity of this situation is not lost on Me. I will protect you, I will strengthen you, I will tell you what to say and when to say it.
The LORD of Hosts is coming with His army. It will be glorious. My Glory shall fill the whole earth, day and night. You will all worship Me in peace and love.
I AM a good Father, and my grace and riches will be poured out. You will drink the finest wine and eat the choicest bread. For I AM is upon you.
Thus saith the LORD, your Redeemer.”
I asked for Scripture. The Lord gave me Gen 43, Psalm 41, Matt 7, Lev 19, Isaiah 19.
Some verses that jumped out at me in the context of everything going on:
Genesis 43:19-23 (NLT) 19 The brothers approached the manager of Joseph’s household and spoke to him at the entrance to the palace. 20 “Sir,” they said, “we came to Egypt once before to buy food. 21 But as we were returning home, we stopped for the night and opened our sacks. Then we discovered that each man’s money–the exact amount paid–was in the top of his sack! Here it is; we have brought it back with us. 22 We also have additional money to buy more food. We have no idea who put our money in our sacks.” 23 “Relax. Don’t be afraid,” the household manager told them. “Your God, the God of your father, must have put this treasure into your sacks. I know I received your payment.” Then he released Simeon and brought him out to them.
Genesis 43:34-34 (NLT) And Joseph filled their plates with food from his own table, giving Benjamin five times as much as he gave the others. So they feasted and drank freely with him.
Psalms 41:1-2 (NLT) 1 For the choir director: A psalm of David. Oh, the joys of those who are kind to the poor! The LORD rescues them when they are in trouble. 2 The LORD protects them and keeps them alive. He gives them prosperity in the land and rescues them from their enemies.
Matthew 7:7-8 (NLT) 7 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.
Leviticus 19:33-34 (NLT) 33 “Do not take advantage of foreigners who live among you in your land. 34 Treat them like native-born Israelites, and love them as you love yourself. Remember that you were once foreigners living in the land of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.
Isaiah 19:19-22 (NLT) 19 In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and there will be a monument to the LORD at its border. 20 It will be a sign and a witness that the LORD of Heaven’s Armies is worshiped in the land of Egypt. When the people cry to the LORD for help against those who oppress them, he will send them a savior who will rescue them. 21 The LORD will make himself known to the Egyptians. Yes, they will know the LORD and will give their sacrifices and offerings to him. They will make a vow to the LORD and will keep it. 22 The LORD will strike Egypt, and then he will bring healing. For the Egyptians will turn to the LORD, and he will listen to their pleas and heal them.
