At the end of every era, a transformational crossroad emerges, to offer a new directive vision that is full of God's divine wisdom. This vision reveals a heavenly strategy that has the power to bring forth a clear course correction. If this higher path is prayerfully chosen and obeyed it has the power to prevent us from repeating historical mistakes by awakening our currently hidden, yet highest potential. Vision draws the best out of us because it repositions and reforms us so that we can prosper on a newly laid foundation and platform of truth. "For yet a little while, and He who is coming will come and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith; but if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him." Hebrews 10:37-39
Do you know that children can have supernatural encounters just like adults? At times, they can even be more sensitive to the heavenly realm than adults. Here are a few things you can do to help the children in your life develop a positive relationship with hearing God—especially through supernatural encounters and dreams! Children are incredibly special to God. They are so special that Jesus specifically welcomed and encouraged children throughout His life. He especially defended the relationship children have with God and instructed adults not to discourage them in their relationship with Him.
You are coming up to a new dimension in warfare, and I want you to be ready to exercise your authority like never before. Yes, I want you to take a stand for the land, and decree the promises that I have made to you. You need to rise up in faith, and accept nothing less than the best that I have for you. No more are you to go about like a chicken scratching in the dirt, but you are to rise up to be the eagle I called you to be, soaring high above the powers and principalities, and using your own storms and trials of life to lift you up.
Much has been said about the Kingdom of God/heaven; messages are preached, and books have been written in an attempt to define and communicate the Kingdom. There are many varied concepts of what the Kingdom may be, including: A far-off place that is attained when a believer dies; A spiritually transforming event that is anticipated when Jesus returns; Something that has already been established now and its full expression is dependent on the church's revelation and demonstration; And to some, defining the Kingdom escapes them. In this article, it is my intent to share some of the insights I have garnered about the Kingdom. My desire is to add a little to your faith and maybe bring a nugget of insight to your purpose!
People are talking about "the shift" as if it is the latest new fad, but it is seriously more than that. Many things have changed, and many have cried out in the past for a grace of "a little more time" and God has granted that. But others know that things have changed and in many places the foundations have already shifted and there is really more to come. Many have been crying out that structures are not what they used to be, nor what they should be.
Over the past few days I have felt the Lord's heart strongly for those who are now stepping into the 'new things' the Lord has opened before them. This is a season of incredible promotion and divine surprises. There are many new avenues, new pathways, new doors and new blueprints, but in the release of the "new things" God is releasing and leading His people into, I saw many feeling pressure, overwhelmed and even some fear. If that's you, this word is for you.
"Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it." (Hebrews 4:1-2 NKJV) The good news of Christ was preached prophetically to those in Moses day when they wandered in the wilderness – although it did not profit them because of a lack of faith. Just as David saw prophetically that Christ would come to lay down His life as the Lamb of God.
Who hath heard such a thing? Who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children. Isaiah 66:8 We all know the story of Joseph. How he was sold into slavery by his own brothers and separated from his father and family at the young age of seventeen. Then, in Egypt he was unjustly accused and thrown into prison. But through it all (thirteen years) God was with him, maturing him while preparing and positioning him to become the number two man to the most powerful king on earth at that time.
As Christians we so often wonder when going through trials and tribulations, what have I done? Why Lord is this happening? The scripture that the Lord has comforted me with recently is: Ecclesiastes 9:11 I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
It's time to go to a new level of the anointing in your life! You were never meant to plateau or stay at one level. This is an upward call in Christ Jesus. We are designed by God to continually go higher and higher. From glory to glory, breakthrough to breakthrough, anointing to anointing. It's time. God wants to release a fresh anointing on your life. You can experience an increase in the gifts God has given you and see the anointing He has trusted you with go to a new level.
