The breakthrough you have been trying to obtain is on its way! Things that haven't yet happened and seem delayed are going to come forth. You will experience deliverance from issues where you haven't been able to receive complete breakthrough. Prophecies not yet fulfilled are going to manifest!
I was dancing in worship a few days ago when I heard the words "birth" and "push." As I continued to worship, the weight of His glory was so strong I ended up prostrate on the floor, and a word came forth which I released over the event attendees. The word continued to climax over the next 24 hours through a dream and further revelation while in His presence.
The vision and words the Lord was releasing were so intense and weighty it stayed with me for hours afterward, into the night and next morning. This was a fierce message He wanted released now, in this season, to the children of God. The Spirit spoke about how we have something to do with our prophetic breakthrough and receiving our deliverance. But we have to activate to get the completion of what we have been hoping and praying for.
Later that evening, as I was assembling my notes to speak in the morning, the Spirit of the Lord continued to give me words such as "push," "pull down your strongholds," "make effort" and "continually move up and forward." My spirit stirred with excitement about what will happen in the natural realm. This was going to be a moment of finality for those who haven't yet received closure in certain areas of their lives.
I had a prophetic dream early in the morning. I awoke and began to pray in tongues. I was so excited at what the Holy Spirit was prophetically revealing. Believers have been so discouraged as they press through to their breakthrough but don't see the full manifestation. This would be complete deliverance for some in the areas where they haven't received their breakthrough.
I've had many birthing dreams, but this dream was the most intense, specifically detailed dream on birthing I had ever experienced. In the dream, a person was giving birth. The baby came out, and we set the baby aside because we were more interested in the placenta. After a while, we remembered that we had forgotten about the baby and quickly wrapped up the child, but the placenta was still our focus.
I saw the complete placenta with all the waste pushed out in a sac. The Lord was showing me that for some of you this will be your final push. You will receive complete deliverance with all of your waste pushed out.
The placenta is an organ. It contains the waste from the baby's blood. The placenta is expelled from the body after birth, and you have to do it through an act of labor, through pushing. The Lord reminded me how we have to push out our destiny, deliverance and prophecies and birth them.
Laboring to See Results
Birth is something you have to labor for to see the results. Labor is defined as having difficulty doing something despite working hard, and Webster defines it as "to exert one's powers of body or mind, especially with painful or strenuous effort." The Lord continued to reveal how we have to exert ourselves when we want something, but that people aren't pushing and putting in the effort because they are stuck in passivity and stagnancy. They are tired and feel defeated instead of walking in victory and hope. Despite opposition, you have to move forward and put in what appears to you as painful, strenuous effort.
To push is a vigorous effort to obtain something. It means to "thrust forward, downward or outward, move forward by using force, to exert oneself continuously, vigorously or obtrusively to gain an end, to press forward energetically against opposition," as defined by Webster. It means we have to make an effort and get forceful against the kingdom of darkness before the kingdom of darkness gets forceful against us. We have to push, pull and birth to see our deliverance come to pass, prophetic words manifest and dreams and desires come to full manifestation. The Lord was revealing that some haven't gotten their breakthrough because they aren't doing it vigorously. You start and quit. You go and give up. You have to put in the effort!
In 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, it speaks of pulling down your strongholds. "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ." Pulling down our strongholds takes effort, capturing every thought and bringing it into obedience and subjecting it to the Bible. It may get tiring, but we must continually do it.
The placenta contains the waste from the baby's blood and through this time of impartation, the Lord revealed how He purchased our waste with His blood. Jesus is removing the waste from our blood in this season, but we have to birth and push it out. We have to labor for it intensely. He clearly showed me for some people, this will be their final hour of labor, the final push they have to make to see their breakthrough. Be disciplined and obedient to what He is calling you to do.
Be intentional and be intense so that you can walk in the full manifestation of God's will for your life!
