"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you." Isaiah 60:1–2 NIV It is time to rise up! I heard the Lord say, "I am moving this month through the message of Isaiah 60—particularly verses 1, 11 and 22—and also the entire chapter of Matthew 13." We are at a major turning point as the dark night of 2020 is coming to an end. The Lord is shining His light and revealing the areas where the enemy has been attacking and trying to discourage you.
The month of March is the release of new assignments and instructions that will unfold more over the next few months. Then the Lord answered me and said: "Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it." Habakkuk 2:2 NKJV Be prepared to write down what the Lord is speaking to you. Watch for dreams and visions to increase as we are entering into the season of Passover (March 27–April 4) and Resurrection Sunday on April 4. This is a very strategic season to hear the voice of God! Get ready to "pass over" into a new season in March and April.

You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. Deuteronomy 28:12 NIV If you don't know how to get your breakthrough, here are some steps I use that will help you get aligned in this season.
It is time to let go of the past and press forward into what God is calling us to for 2021 and beyond. "° But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:13–14 NIV The Lord is saying it is time to forget all the disappointments—politically, the pandemic and all the pain of 2020—and press on towards what is ahead. We all have the work of the Kingdom to do, and the plan of the enemy is to distract you from this. The Lord is releasing plans and strategies for you personally and for cities and nations. We need to get our eyes on the prize! The Lord is calling us to rise above the swirl of confusion, fear and violence that is ruling the airways and streets.
Return to your fortress, you prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you. Zachariah 9:12 NIV Have you felt as though you are in prison or being held captive in your own home? The Lord is going to restore you, and there is going to be double blessing come as a result of your suffering. We entered into a new season as of December 31, 2020. We might still be dealing with the pandemic, but the tables have turned to our favor. There is now a flow from Heaven for breakthrough! Watch for the release of healing anointing and refreshment that will flow like a river.
This is a Christmas season like no other—in a year like no other! Even though most of us won't have the whole family gathered at one table this year, our heavenly Father is holding a place at the Lord's table for each of us! A few years ago, I had a prophetic vision where I saw the Table of the Lord—a huge table that went on for eternity—and the Lord was sitting at the head of the table. Most of the Christians were standing around with their hands out in front of them like butlers or servants ready to serve the King. But the Father was inviting them to sit at the table as sons and daughters! This is happening right now.
"I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory," says the Lord Almighty. "The silver is mine and the gold is mine," declares the Lord Almighty. Haggai 2:7–8 NIV The Lord is using the great shaking we are seeing to bring about the words of Haggai. The pandemic and strange things happening are not from God, but He is going to use it all. We have been in a time of cleansing and preparation. "The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house," says the Lord Almighty. "And in this place I will grant peace," declares the Lord Almighty. Haggai 2:9 NIV
"Look at the nations and watch—and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told."

He has not forgotten you and is now moving behind the scenes to bring things into place for a breakthrough in the midst of the storm. The key to this is to stay at peace and trust. Watch for the Lord to answer prayers and bring breakthroughs. He has been sustaining you, but now you are going to get an infusion of hope, strength, peace and power! Ministering angels are being released to help people get a new wind of the Spirit!
We need God's wisdom more than anything else right now. This ability to perceive things spiritually through the Holy Spirit is called the gift of discernment. The gift of discernment, words of knowledge, discerning of spirits and the gift of wisdom are some of the most underestimated gifts from God. These incredible gifts utilize the senses, power and wisdom of the Holy Spirit and go way beyond our natural abilities. Back when I was seeking God's wisdom for something specific in my life, I went to Proverbs 1 and saw the word "Proverbs" turn into the word "Pro-verbs." I heard the Lord say, "I want you to look at the verbs in Proverbs 1 because I'm going to do something." I found some hidden gems about God's wisdom in the Book of Proverbs that are important in this season.
I wrote the following prophetic word last week before the President and First Lady contracted the coronavirus. As you will read in this prophetic word, I had a heads up from the Lord and prior to any of this happening, I heard the Lord on Yom Kippur September 28, to raise up an army to pray for what is coming in October. Four days later COVID-19 hit the White House. Lord we pray for President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump and the entire White House staff. We ask for divine healing and full recovery.
