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." Habakkuk 1:5 NIV The Lord is going to bring about some surprising changes starting this month that will unfold over the months to come. 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.
What are the desires of your heart? Is that something you've allowed yourself to think about before? In this season, it's so important, now more than ever, to tune into what God is speaking to you concerning your destiny, desires, and dreams. He's looking to promote and advance you! Many people today are seeking out their life purpose, and God is revealing this to you in this season. Your life purpose is the very reason you were created. A need for purpose is rooted in our human nature.
Can you feel something stirring in the spiritual atmosphere? Big heavenly events are coming up! September is almost here—the season of the Days of Awe. These are Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year celebration) through Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) when God opens up the Books of Heaven and begins to reveal new assignments to you. It's a very exciting time! The Lord's made it clear to me that we need fresh wisdom during this time. Here are a few ways you can step into the wisdom flowing from Heaven right now.
"'In the last days', God says, 'I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.'" Acts 2:17–18 NIV Since last Pentecost (May 31, 2020), I noticed the ability to see in the spirit started to increase. I heard the Lord say that the seer anointing is going to be re-released back to us on the 45th anniversary of the late seer-prophet Bob Jones' major encounter in Heaven (August 8, 1975).
I've given a recent prophetic word that we are entering into a season of joy. That may be hard to believe when you look around at what is going on in the world today. But the trouble we're experiencing is not here to stay. No matter what it looks like right now, I encourage you to jump into the season of joy that's here now and embrace it for yourself. You know, I've spent many years learning how to understand the times and seasons of Heaven. I think that studying the natural seasons the Earth moves through every year is a good place to start.
