PROPHETIC WORD FOR MARCH 17, 2017

 

 

I am very excited about what God has in store for us, starting in March 2017 and, while praying into it, the Lord has quickened it to my heart to share the keys we need to access the promises for our destiny through prophetic release, staking our claims in the spirit.

Many times we miss our opportunties, simply because we do not know how to tap into God’s purposes for our lives.

Just like Abram, creating an Ishmael through trying to “help” God, we can get impatient and cause the arm of the flesh to work against us, causing us unnecessary pain and problems.

Doubt, fear and unbelief can also cause great obstacles on our path and prevent us from entering into our Promised Land.

Seeing that there is so much promised for March 2017, we want to encourage you to watch this webinar to get positioned for God’s greater glory.

God has recently given me a very vivid dream regarding the number 17 and how it relates to March 17, 2017 – signifying double blessings of victorious breakthrough that will start manifesting.

In another dream I woke up with Romans 4:17 (note the number 17 again!):

Romans 4:17:  As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.” — He is our father in the presence of God, in whom he believed, the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being what does not yet exist. 18Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as he had been told, “So shall your offspring be.”…

 

While I am writing, I hear the Lord saying, “A Turnaround is coming, where impossible-looking circumstances are going to TURN AROUND as God’s glory is poured out!”  This is so EXCITING!    BELIEVE, EXPECT and CALL FORTH those things that are not just as though it were!

 

To get tuned in we want to recommend you listening to the short, POWERFUL prophetic Word released regarding March 17th.

PLEASE SHARE THIS WORD AND THE LINK WITH ALL YOUR FRIENDS!   WE ARE IN A BREAKTHROUGH SEASON!

Overflowing blessings are about to be poured out!!!

KEYS, DOORS, GATES and OPEN HEAVENS

 

THIS IS A KAIROS TIME to access new realms in the spirit, discovering secrets and mysteries in hidden places. There is a trumpet call of the Spirit to come through the open door of revelation, by the blood of Jesus Christ into higher dimensions of His glory.(Rev.4)

I have also repeatedly heard that God is opening double doors of blessing in this season – especially in the month of March and that oily alignments are going to come forth through divine appointments and new connections in order to fulfill God’s destiny for our lives.

As a result the enemy of our souls is actively trying every possible strategy to keep God’s children from accessing the glory of His Presence, using distractions, harassments, and assaults on the mind and emotions to break our focus and to draw us out of the secret place.
I heard the Lord say, “Simply step into My Provision in the glory!   Gird up your loins now with the belt of Truth and clothe yourself in Me, in Wisdom.  That will open for you the doors that I want to take you through!”

The KEY OF DAVID (IS: 22:22) resembles the governmental authority to open and shut, to give access or deny access.

 

Is.22:22 “I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.”

The Keys of the Kingdom (to bind and to loose) are similar and both signify the authority that we have received a kings and priests unto our God to reign on the earth.   (Rev.1:4/ Rev.5:10).

God can give His trusted friends (who do HIs will on the earth) to lock, shut up and close gates and doors to demonic infiltration, stopping the works of the enemy.

“Will you ROAR with Me?”

During worship I received this vision-Word on February 15th (Elsabe Briers-Bakkes)

As I was worshiping, I saw a blinding light coming to me from the right, but I couldn’t distinguish any form until it stopped before me and the Lord emerged as the roaring Lion, asking me, “Will you roar with Me?”
It was a compelling invitation to me, but I sensed that it was also for His bride. I realized that this was a very weighty invitation, not to be taken lightly, with the fear of the Lord all over me. I broke up, weeping, saying, “Yes, Lord!” and started worshiping Him in the glory as the One who Reigns and rules – my Lord and King – undone in His Presence. It was a stepping-in to a higher release of authority with the ruling Sword on the King’s orders.
Then I saw myself in bridal attire, but it was as if I was representing the company of the bride of Christ, hand-in hand with Him, taking her up to higher places in Zion and Him conveying to her that out of this deeper intimacy He wants the heart of His bride to be so joined to His that she can express His heart, His thoughts, receiving His glorious shifting Word in the spirit to ROAR His prophetic decrees into the areas He shows her where the enemy has invaded and wants to invade. It was not only for her own needs, but especially for the nations. (Ps.2).
I knew He was summoning the warrior bride to use His flaming sword to destroy the frequencies of the enemy over circumstances and over the nations (Ps.2) through prophetic decrees empowered by His roar in ruling authority, setting things in order and shifting that which is out of sync with His will into alignment. (Ps.149)

While sharing this with someone over the phone, the anointing came upon me and I heard the Word, “Let the roar of the Lion of Judah arise in Africa”. Let us declare this in unity as His warrior-bride!

LIVING THE VICTORIOUS LIFE!

LIVING A LIFE OF VICTORY – ALWAYS!

I heard in the Spirit:  IT IS TIME!  – to be properly equipped and armed (with the Sword of the Spirit) to maintain your VICTORY in all circumstances!

 

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour’ (1 PET.5:8)

The Hebraic Year 5777 started in October and is marked by the Sword of the Lord, which spells victory (Nr 17), going into the Gregorian year 2017.

I have been made very aware that there will be confrontations by the enemy of our souls who comes “as” a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. That is why there is much emphasis on the Sword!     We have to have our swords sharpened and polished and on the ready (speaking of being saturated with the Word of the Lord) as our daily bread that we feed on – our sustenance, as well as our empowerment by the Spirit to wage war and not lose ground, but enforce the Kingdom!

IT IS TIME! – to know your proper IDENTITY to arise in AUTHORITY against all opposition of the enemy, taking DOMINION to rule and reign with Christ in VICTORIOUS LIVING! He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah and He reigns!

JOIN US for the LIVE GLOBAL WEBINAR SERIES, “LIVING A LIFESTYLE OF VICTORY – ALWAYS!”  to receive key strategies in order to OVERCOME all the wiles of the enemy.

Blessing you with VICTORIOUS LIVING – ALWAYS!

LEAPING ON THE SOUND OF PRAISE DECREES – ONTO HIGHER GROUND BY THE EMPOWERING OF THE SPIRIT.

 

LEAPING ON THE SOUND OF PRAISE DECREES – ONTO HIGHER GROUND BY THE EMPOWERING OF THE SPIRIT.

As I was pondering 2017, I had the impression of people standing on a high mountain top (being able to see far into the distance), facing a deep ravine, separating them from an even higher mountain top. One by one the people started raising their voices like trumpets, releasing sound that reverberated over the surrounding mountain tops. Then some of them started leaping over the ravine, as if carried on the sound of praise, landing on on a higher elevation in an atmosphere of great victory. The number 17 signifies victory!
I sensed that the trumpeting sounds were faith decrees that were made according to the prophetic promises of God over their lives. The interesting part was that they were “praise-decrees” that had the power to catapult them over the seemingly insurpassable ravine onto even higher ground than before.

It is also significant that they were already standing on a high mountain top, signifying that they were people of worship, pursuing and enjoying God’s presence. For those there is the encouragement that even higher experiences in the glory await them – what the eye hasn’t seen, the ear hasn’t heard and nobody could even imagine!

FRAMING 2017 WITH THE WORD OF GOD
OVER YOUR LIFE!
I want to encourage each of you to take hold of God’s Word over your life as you cross over into 2017 with fresh vision and hope, declaring it boldly in full assurance of faith, expecting the manifestation of His promises in great victory and embracing the “New thing” that is springing forth even now as you frame your world with God’s Word.

“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” Hebrews 11:3 KJV

Isaiah 55:11King James Version (KJV)
“So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
Blessing each of you with God’s goodness and grace for 2017!

TREES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, DRESSED IN THE ARMOR OF LIGHT

 

TREES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, DRESSED IN THE ARMOR OF LIGHT.

As I was joining with my granddaughter and a friend for dinner in Neptune Beach, we walked into this beautiful lit-up street, where all the palm trees are wrapped in different bands of light, dressed to shine – reminding me of trees of righteousness, flourishing like palm trees in the house of the Lord!

“The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish.” (Ps. 92:12-15)

My spirit leaped inside of me with such a childlike joy and the picture has been speaking to me ever since, being very conscious of God’s glory light!  Then, unexpectedly we came across a wonderland of lights decorating a neighborhood.   This Word being confirmed twice?!

Many of God’s children have had a very tough year (or more), but as God is promising that He is doing a new thing, I believe that deliverance and breakthrough into victory is at the door of the new year, with 17 spelling VICTORY through a fresh anointing of the Spirit of the Lord about to be poured out:

King James 2000 Bible: Is.61:
“To provide for them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”

We, as born-again believers, walking in righteousness (walking in right standing with God and with men) are lit up on the inside with the light of God’s Presence, but at the same time we are taught to be clothed in love (Gal.3:14) and the armor of light. Light and the weapons of righteousness (2 Cor.6:7) are very closely connected here. Light has no communion with the works of darkness, so let us ask the Holy Spirit to shine His light on any spot or wrinkle in our bridal dress, taking the blinders off where we cannot see, purifying our hearts by the Spirit to unfeigned brotherly love – then fervently love one another with a pure heart (1 Pet.1:22)- unconditional and always forgiving. What freedom!

 

The free gift of Christmas is God’s love.  Freely we have received, let’s freely give!
“The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.” Rom.13:12 KJV
Then we are also to arise and shine, for His glory is risen upon us (Is.60). We cannot do anything else but to shine when we tap into God’s glory Presence, where there is fulness of joy! (Ps.16).  I believe the content of our shining is being wrapped in Light, in the Christ, resounding with joy!!

So it is shining from the inside out and then becomes armor of light around us, protecting us from the arrows of darkness. What a joyous praise song arises and in the spirit realm that glory light is intimidating to the enemy, carrying the sound of the Lord’s victory!
Hallelujah!

Enjoy the feast of lights (Hanukkah), starting on December 24th, coinciding with the celebration of the true Light that came into the world, taking us right into the year of victory!

Blessings,
Elsabe

DIFFERENT NEW SHOES FOR THE NEW SEASON

While fellowshipping with a friend in the glory, I had a vision and received the word, “New shoes for the new season.”  I saw very different shoes:  high heel shoes, sneakers and heavy boots.  As soon as I mentioned it, my friend saw high platform shoes.

 I understand that we will have new shoes for new assignments, which might be very different from one another, requiring different gear in the natural and in the spirit.  This of course requires to be fine-tuned to the Spirit, hearing and promptly heeding His voice in total obedience – on the ready for the demand of the new assignment to walk onto whichever ground He chooses you to be.

 KINGLY, REIGNING AUTHORITY

 With having heard from God comes a kingly, reigning authority with keen discernment, being properly “shod” for every occasion where we stepped into – in preparation for the gospel of peace, with the Word of God in our mouths to shift situations, cities, regions and countries into the new sound.

 NEW, HIGHER PLATFORMS AND NEW OPPORTUNITIES

 We will also step up on to new, higher platforms and into new opportunities and we will have to have the proper spiritual preparation for the specific assignment.  From the place of intimate relationship with the King, we will be well-equipped with His Word of authority, wielding this sword of the Spirit for powerful displays of His glory.

 We will also need divine wisdom to be easily yielded to the Spirit, flexible to move in suddenlies and be “on the ready” to move in quick obedience to fulfill His assignments.

  ”But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated (or yielded = flexible) full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.”  James 3:17

 Pure hearts and clean hands are a pre-requisite to carry the pure sound and power of His glory, establishing God’s will in the earth as it is in heaven with signs and wonders following. 

 So, be prepared to step into any occasion that God has assigned for you, knowing that He is the Breaker, going before you, breaking through any opposition as your Deliverer, making the crooked places straight before you as you bring the good news to the seven mountains of society.

 CONFIRMATION OF THE WORD

 The same evening after the vision I went out with my daughter.  It started raining and I was running for shelter when my right shoe, which has a kind of “wedge” platform, became detached from the bottom part.  My speed was broken and I had to “drag” the shoe along on the ground to be able to walk.  

 In reflecting on it, I realized that God was confirming the Word which I received in the morning.  I love these shoes, but they are about 5 years old and I wore them a lot – even had new soles put on them as they are most comfortable and pretty and I wore them everywhere for every occasion.

 I sense God is saying that in the spirit our old shoes (habits and ways of going about our life and ministry), even though they are comfortable, have to make way for the new.  We cannot cling to the old (I have already repaired them with glue and found that the other one was also coming apart). 

 The old needs to be left behind, coming out of our comfort zones and be open for new approaches to different situations and different spheres of influence, otherwise our momentum will be slowed down and we will be hindered in our walk – especially as God is about to pour out the glory rain in new dimensions, where we will be dancing in the rain of His Spirit with hinds’ feet in high places, not being hindered by negative things happening in the natural, distracting our focus and flexibility. (It only rained for a few minutes from the moment I left my car until I went into the building where we met).  

 I also sense that a new authority is coming as we are upgraded to walk onto new, higher platforms wielding the sword of the Spirit over situations, regions and countries, releasing the Word of God out of intimate relationship with the King of glory.

Lately I have been very aware of the fact that we need to listen intentionally to the Holy Spirit before opening our mouths, speaking only what we hear our Father is saying.(John 12:49)

James 1: 19-20: ”Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.”

 “Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice. Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.” – 

Ps. 141: 2-3

 Our mouths should only carry the Word of the Lord in the authority that comes from encounter.  It shifts the status quo and brings divine order and perspective for those who have ears to hear.

 2 Cor.2:17:  “For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.”

 It is an awesome privilege to walk in close communion-union with God, but it brings a holy fear and the responsibility of speaking only that which we hear Him saying, which is holy.

 John 12:49

For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, He gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.”

 I want to encourage everyone who reads this to consecrate yourself afresh to the Lord in a holy walk and talk, listening constantly to hear His instructions and be willing and yielded to walk it out in absolute obedience – clothed in the armor of light, the Christ, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace (Eph.6:15), speaking His Word with boldness and authority, establishing His Kingdom!

 Rom.10:15 ”And having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace”.

 We, as born-again Christians, have the privilege to bring the “Good Tidings”, that announces the reigning power of the King, Christ Jesus!  Let us refrain from speaking about the works of darkness, or meddle with quarrels.  We are to take the place of the third party that brings godly perspective and authority through the Word from our Father. 

 Jubilee Bible 2000: Is.52:7:

“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that brings good tidings, that publishes peace, that brings good tidings of good, that publishes saving health, that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigns!”

 As mature sons and daughters of the King, clothed in the Christ in the armor of Light, we are armed withTruth, Salvation, Righteousness, having the Faith of God. We are ready to bring the Gospel of peace with the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, while staying tuned to Him, praying much in tongues.(Eph.6: 12-18)  Fitly joined together, as every joint supplies, (Eph.4:16) we form a formidable army, taking the Kingdom by force in sync with the movement of heaven.  Hallelujah!

Blessings

FREELY GLIDE IN THE SPIRIT

FREELY GLIDE IN THE SPIRIT

image

It is of uptmost importance to keep our hearts free, guarding it with all diligence, for out of it springs the issues of life.(Prov.4:23).  

I heard the word, “Pile-ups” in the spirit and knew that the Lord was giving me a warning not to allow issues and difficulties to “pile up” in my consciousness and sub-consciousness, becoming burdens, stresses and pre-occupations.

As I was fellowshiping with a close friend, we realized again how subtle the enemy is, creeping in with all kinds of things that cause stress, stealing your joy.  If we do not deal with these things by bringing it before the Lord, it will pile up  and before you know it, you will be stressed and oppressed, bearing “burdens” which are not from the Lord.  In the process you get distracted and side-tracked from doing what God has called you to do and you lose momentum.

Therefore I want to encourage you to take some special time out with the Lord, waiting on Him and rising up to get heavenly perspective. (Is.40:29-31)

Ask the Holy Spirit to put His spotlight on the things that you subconsciously stress about in the deepest layers of your heart, allowing pile-ups which will deplete you of energy and focus.  Now bring it into the light and intentionally deal with it!

RELEASE AND BREATHE!

Release these issues one by one to the Lord (MATT.11:28-30/PHIL.4:6) breathing deep into the Spirit – into the provision of His grace, His wisdom, His provision, His blessing and whatever else you need, which are all supplied in Christ Jesus.

You will be replenished, receiving His perfect peace in the midst of any storm and your joy will be full in Him.

RE-FOCUS

Remember, where the eye goes, the mind follows.  Take every thought captive in obedience to the Lord and turn your eyes upon Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith (Heb.12:1-3), taking every thought captive in obedience to the Lord.  Thank Him for working out all the details of your life and choose to rejoice in His goodness and grace.

RENEW YOUR VISION & PURPOSE

Simply get your vision before your eyes again and keep viewing your life form above, from His viewpoint and counsel, deliberately speaking His Word into your situations with prophetic declarations, knowing that your mouth determines the outcome! (Prov.18:21)

ENJOYING THE FREE GLIDE IN THE SPIRIT

Now you will be on a free glide on the wind streams of the Spirit (not flapping your wings in anxiousness), but living from above the static, releasing God’s will and His Word into the earth for His glory!   Enjoy the glide in His Presence!

9 Characteristics of a Real New Testament Prophet

9 Characteristics of a Real New Testament Prophet – Dr. Steve Crosby

 

Stereotypes regarding prophetic ministry have existed for centuries. For some, prophets have been dispensationally deleted from church existence, allegedly “passing away” with the death of the last apostle or the closing of the canon.

 

Others may not be dispensationally inclined in their thinking and beliefs, but they have had either no experience, or some very bad experiences, with those who claim to be modern era prophets. Yet others have had full-on, cultic experiences with those who have claimed to be prophets. Can any path out of this mess be found?  I’d like offer a suggested road map.

Like virtually everything . . . it’s all in the definition of terms.

Prophets, “prophetic people,” or people labelled by others as “being prophetic”  are often erroneously characterized as being severe, ungovernable, frenetic, specially gifted, loners, emotional, mystic, unpredictable, weird, flaky, spooky, confrontational, impractical, intuitive not rational, “spirit” over “mind” people, and more generalizations along this line, all of which are very unfortunate and inaccurate stereotypes.

The tendency to determine what is or is not prophetic, or who is or is not a prophet by the mere presence or absence of a charismatic endowment, rather than inner alignment to kingdom truth, is unfortunate. It often carries tragic results.

The simplest definition of being prophetic is: hearing God and doing what He says!

Here are some qualities of bona fide new testament prophetic ministry from a new covenant and  Christ-centered perspective.

1. BEYOND GIFTEDNESS

Being able to accurately predict the future, deliver an accurate word of knowledge, or personal prophecy does not make someone a prophet. It might make him/her a gifted crook, new age psychic, or occultist. Delivering an accurate personal word (the normal expectation in prophetic-apostolic circles) is a legitimate, but minor facet of what it means to be a prophet.  It’s a wholly inadequate definition. Genuineness and spiritual authenticity from a Christian ministry perspective is determined by: character, message content, and gift operation. All three must be present to validate a ministry. Balaam gave an accurate prophecy, but he was not God’s prophet. John the Baptist did no miracles, predicted nothing, and he was the greatest prophet born of woman of that era. There is more to being God’s prophet than exercise of a gift.

2. SIGHTEDNESS

A prophet has a unique, God-given ability to bring forth a clear unveiling of the Person of Christ, and His current purposes in the cosmos, through the opening of the Word of God, by the Spirit of God. John the Baptist, the greatest prophet of the old order, did not predict future events, nor did he do any miracles. He made Christ known. His message was not “this or that is going to happen,” but “behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.”

3. ICONOCLASTIC

Prophets have the divine ability to tear down inner obstacles and outer systems that prevent the apprehension of Christ. Because of this ability, prophets are often unwelcome in the prevailing Christian culture. They do not preach a feel good, personal enrichment, life enhancement, false gospel. They are a threat to all systems that are not wholly Christ-centered and of kingdom ethos.

4. CONFORMING EMPOWERMENT

A prophet calls God’s people to conformity to those functions of sight through transformation and empowerment. It’s not enough to point out deficiency in individuals, systems, and structures. To do so is not a spiritual function. Critics point out deficiency. Prophets point out what is wrong and provide a path and means for remediation through grace empowerment.

5. MOTIVATION

Grace and a broken heart, not legalities and judgments of surface issues motivate a prophet. God has no dry-eyed prophets. Prophets live in, and minister from, the realities of the New Covenant, not the blessings and curses; fear and dread of the Old Covenant. Prophets build from a platform of internal ethics and accuracy of their lives, not from the exercise of their gift.

6. RELATIONSHIPS

Contrary to stereotypes, a prophet is relational. One of the signs of a dysfunctional prophet is an inability to functionally relate interpersonally and socially.

7. CONSCIOUSNESS

To be prophetic is to nurture, nourish, and evoke a consciousness and perception that is alternative to the consciousness and perception of the dominant culture around us (Robert Wilson, Prophecy and Society in Ancient Israel). NT prophets primarily evoke, or awaken, a Christ-consciousness in believers (Heb. 10:1-10), not awareness of future events.

8. BUILDERS NOT BLESSERS

Prophets are by nature primarily builders, not blessers. They’re concerned with strategic and long-term change–lasting internal configuration to Truth–not short-term emotional charge. Prophets are sent to a church to elicit obedience and conformity to divine Truth, not to bless people by telling them how wonderful they are, how rich they’re going to be, and how they’re going change the world. The notion that as a believer I can hear God, not obey Him, and still be “blessed,” is crazy. Godly understanding, plus conformity to the understanding, is the essence of being prophetic.

9. EQUALIZATION

Part of John the Baptist’s ministry was the filling of valleys and the bringing down of mountains. Prophets are concerned about equalization in all relationships, systems, and structures. In the new covenant era, being prophetic is for everyone (Joel 2, Acts 3, Num. 11), not just a few gifted specialists. True prophets have the ability to bring prophetic equalization to people, not just merely display their gift before people.

Convergence

CONVERGENCE
This is a time frame in which we need to take stock of where we are and where we are going in the Lord’s time-table – getting an eagle’s eye view of what God has been doing in our lives throughout the past year and where we stand in His plans and purposes for our lives. 
The Year 5777

We have entered the Hebraic New Year 5777, denoting extraordinary grace (Number 5) to bring the fulness (Number 7) and completeness of the 7-fold Spirit in expression.

CONVERGENCE – 

The Word “Convergence” has been ringing in my ear for a while now and I see that those who have been earnestly seeking the Lord are now going to step into a convergence where everything that has been deposited in them through the Holy Spirit is coming together in great fruitfulness and effectiveness in this season to fulfill their ultimate purpose.  

Many have felt frustrated because they have been longing for fulfillment, not knowing exactly how to to implement their gifts, talents and expertise in perfect sync with God’s plans for their lives.   But for those who have been seeking His face, walking in dependence on His leading, allowing the Holy Spirit to bring transformation in their lives (2 Cor.3:18) there is a convergence to step into their ultimate purpose.  Everything is coming together now in a convergence with heaven’s plans and our readiness, having been molded in the Potter’s hand and having been forged in the fire of affliction to be made ready for use in His hands.  The mature sons and daughters of God are arising to step into their predestined role, clothed in love and and the armor of light, wearing the apron of humilty.

All that God has deposited in us by the Spirit in the form of gifts, talents, skills, impartation, endowments, wisdom, understanding and revelation are at a convergence point, coming together in fulness of expression of His glory for such a time as this for His glory demonstration and at the same time fitly joined together with others in the body who have been prepared likewise. It is like different streams coming together forming one great river of glory in the unity of faith.  Great exploits will be done in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 4:15King James Version (KJV)

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

FRESH ALIGNMENTS
I sense that the LIGHT WILL COME ON in a suddenly for many who have been in the “Pushing” stage of birthing their vision and there will be CLARITY of PURPOSE and fresh ALIGNMENT with others in the body who are like-minded to break through into fulness of our promises.New ministry teams are going to be divinely “put together” by the Holy Spirit in unexpected suddenlies.

Many have been in pressing in for greater depths and heights in the spirit and I sense that we have come to a pivotal point with the Jewish celebration of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. 

We as Christians are celebrating the glorious victory of Calvary today, knowing we have a High Priest according to the order of Melchizedeck who lives to intercede for us (Heb.7:17,25) having paid for our sins once and for all.

We are worshiping the Lord anew for His immense love for us in His sacrifice.  In this past year the Lord has very intensely schooled me in His love walk (still learning) and I know that it is the ONE thing we will be tested on, namely, “Did you learn to love?” (Bob Jones).

Agape love is the principal empowerment for the extrordinary miracles that we are going to walk in.

1 Thess. 3:12-13  “And may the Lord cause you to increase and excel and overflow in love for one another, and for all people, just as we also do for you; so that He may strengthen and establish your hearts without blame in holiness in the sight of our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all His saints (God’s people).”

BREAKTHROUGH IS IN THE AIR

As I am writing this I suddenly had a quickening in my spirit, sensing Breakthrough into new avenues, new line-ups and new connections coming forth.  It is happening NOW and as we can see it and align with it in the spirit realm, it will manifest in the natural.

This “convergence” is bringing new line-ups by the Spirit with the like-minded being merged together for God’s specific purposes to be accomplished – being fitly connected to our “tribe” to accomplish God’s purposes in the earth, having no agenda of our own, walking in humility and love, shining His glory light into the world.

Although we are not under the law anymore, God does speak very prominently during His appointed feast times and we should incline our ears for wisdom and understanding during this important time frame – making adjustments and coming into a repositioning for this new year – especially listening for His instructions and watching where He is aligning us with others in the body who have the same vision and similar giftings.

NEW MEASURES OF THE  ANOINTING

New measures of the anointing are about to be demonstrated by the Holy Spirit through those who have been faithfully pursueing the Lord,  resulting in wondrous miracles.

In order to flow with these “out of the box” demonstrations of God’s power we need to step out of our old limited mindset. It is a walk in the wisdom of total yieldedness (James 3:17) to the Holy Spirit, not questioning His ways, wanting to rely on the old way of doing things but ready to follow His leading in absolute obedience.

THE YEAR OF THE SWORD

Much has already been written on this, but I understand that, as we get saturated with the Word, abiding in the living power of it (John 15:7), as we abide in Christ, the power to release the “impossible” by the unction of the Holy Ghost will come into effect for everyone who believes. 

In 2 Sam.23:9-10 we read of one of David’s mighty men, Eleazar:

“He arose, and smote the Philistines until his hand was weary, and his hand clave unto the sword: and the Lord wrought a great victory that day; and the people returned after him only to spoil.”

When the Word of God is absorbed into our spirt, and we become one with that Word by faith (the sword clinging to our hand), abiding in Him and abiding in His Word, we can ask anything and it shall be given to us. (John 15:7).  As we speak out that Word, it becomes the Sword of the Spirit in our mouth (Eph.6:17), angels are put in action to perform God’s Word (Ps. 103:20) and the victory is secured, even with the spoils taken.  That is how powerful God’s Word is!  All we need to do is to incline our ear to hear what the Spirit is saying, come into agreement with it and release it into the airways!  Hallelujah!


I am praying that each of us (those reading this) be fine-tuned and connected to the Power Source to walk in the works which He has preordained for us.
