23/24.9 – 30.9 Feast of Tabernacles After 3 days – the time Jesus was in the grave – there begins a week of celebration of bringing in the harvest! It is the end of Summer and time for the harvest to be gathered!!
This has much significance this year as we discern that it is the year of much to be harvested. It is a new year to harvest what you have sown in past seasons. It is time for loved ones to be bought into the Kingdom, it is time for prodigals to return, it is time for the offerings you’ve sown to be reaped, it is time for the prayers you have sown for health, wholeness, overcoming life, to be reaped!!
In this year God is sending forth His angel of harvest to reap victory for you!! Rev.6 1&2.
Take this 3 week season to allow God to usher you into His new way for you in this new year!!
1. Aslan (God) is on the move!!
God has come to his people!
‘I spoke the world in a whisper, but I’m getting ready, Im getting ready, I’m getting ready, to SHOUT!!!’
God will speak for himself!! (Peggy Barr)
‘I can hear the rhythm of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah!’ The angels of authority around the Throne, are now visiting earth.(Rev.4) They bring the authority to operate like heaven on the earth
2. We have come to a Fullness of time Era!
‘When the time had fully come, God sent forth his son into the earth…’
New dispensation of the revelation of Jesus!! A new Jesus Era upon the earth!!
No longer a baby in a manger, now the revelation of His Lordship in Heaven and on the earth!!
5778 has been a foundational year – getting foundations in place so that we are prepared!! God has prepared the wineskin and made a people ready just in time!!
3. Rev.5: – The rider on the white horse is opening the first scroll! The rider on the white horse is going forth to harvest!!
It is the year of harvest on may levels. The grapes are being harvested to make the new wine!!
It is a harvest of prodigals, a harvest of new wine, which is a harvest of life spiritually and naturally. A harvest of finance, a harvest of land, a harvest of destiny coming forth, a harvest of the sons and daughters of God being revealed!! A harvest of joy!!
Calling forth heaven upon the earth on behalf of the sick n the lame, the poor , the broken, the bound, stolen, sold !!
4.The mature bride of Christ revealed in the earth.
Prophetic picture of the Royal wedding: Prince Harry & Megan Markel
Knowing WHO she is and WHOSE she is. Again, the wine of celebration flows at a wedding!!
But ready to take up her responsibility to love the world as the bride of the King of the whole earth!
In maturity she will reproduce and bring forth sons and daughters who are a delight and who display his goodness and glory in the earth!!
5. Bringing forth the new wine!!
The New Wine -The flow of His Love!!!
Coming forth leaning on our beloved!!
Song of Songs. 8. Celebration of one another!
The old self on every level has been stripped away. Flesh severely dealt with so that we can be entwined with our beloved and live fully entwined with him and his desires for us and ours for him.
Time to bring in this new era in joy, regardless of the changes it will mean!! Look at Joseph and Mary, bringing Jesus into the earth – crazy time, but you should rejoice!!
6. Seed falling into the ground to die – so that we come to life!!
‘Unless a seed falls to the ground and dies!! it abides alone! But if it dies…. it produces much fruit’!!
The seed dies, then it stays hidden and drinks of the water of life (word) and as it drinks and brings in nutrients of the soil it is planted in – it begins to flourish – as it continues to pull on the water and in the flow of the spirit it grows into sometimes a huge tree, beautiful flower, shrubs and bushes.
When we stay connected to the water we can overcome, breakthrough, every obstacle that comes against you. eg. cement stopping the plants coming through, flowers coming over the wall!!
Word & Spirit coming forth powerfully together out of his people!!
7. Breakthrough into a whole new lifestyle of being a Christian – Christ’s One!!
A gathering momentum of the bride of Christ living in prayer, devotion, living from heaven to earth!
Year of the demonstration of the power of the HS!!
The gifts and fruits of the spirit on display!! The season of the miraculous, signs, wonders, healing release the every day christian, living like Christ in the world!!
Displaying the goodness and glory of heaven on earth through justice and righteousness, with a view to transforming cities and nations through the righteous power and justice of the Lord!
8. The Kingdom of Heaven on earth being built like a city set on a hill that cannot be hidden!!
Is.54:11 -17! Like Daniel 3 it will become the highest hill of all.
In 5778 , God laid righteous foundations for his people, the bride of Christ.
We prayed – foundations to be established in righteous and justice – God was diligent to ensure that every other foundation on which we stand has been swept away.
From this firm foundation, aligned and submitted, he is building his people, his holy city in beauty, a city that will reveal his splendour and his glory and his goodness – all the wonderful facets of this magnificent King!!
9.Living from heaven to earth!
Established from heaven – seated in heavenly places. Expect his Kingdom, his city, to rise in the nations and in His nation Israel.
Because you are built on the same foundations as his throne room – the authority of the throne room is with you!! The living creatures , those with eyes in their wings and over their bodies, have been released, increasing the authority of heaven upon the earth!!
You will speak with the authority of heaven to create heaven on earth!!
You Are the the Transition
You Are the SHIFT in the earth!!
It seems for the body of Christ in recent years, we have been talking transition and going through much change and shift. It seems we have lived our lives in transition and change!! I believe it has not been our own doing but God has had us on a journey. In his goodness I believe God has been propelling us out of the old era and bringing shift and change so we enter the ‘new era of glory’ he has ordained in church history!!
Transition, as we have found out, is not easy . It is the ‘best of times and the worst of times!!’ Everything is in flux, and yet you know that this is a progression into a greater dimension of life and fruitfulness. It is uncomfortable to say the least, but necessary if we are to keep moving with God’s plans and purposes in the earth.
As we went through the process of preparing for and completing the 12 days of ’SHIFT the Nation’, we understood that we were again in that place of transition. Our mandate was to ‘shift’ the nation, under the government of God.
This meant we were to bring the whole nation through a transition.
As we landed in Canberra at 11:11 am on 11:11.17, (11 the number of transition) we knew that God was going before us and his plan was that we rise in faith (Hebrews11) to shift our nation!!
The number 11 has been significant in our lives for many years. In fact it has been a regular with me since 2010.
The number 11, has many meanings and many references in scripture and over the years I have attempted to understand what God was doing in our lives and across the body of Christ as I kept seeing this number and the various references. The number 11 for the most part, speaks of the incomplete nature of something. For example, if it is the 11th. hour, it’s not yet time! 11 eggs is not quite a dozen. 11 months is not a full year. Hence 11 is considered the number of transition, for when you see this number you will be coming to an end of one cycle and ready to go into the next.
In scripture we see some significant references with the number 11. Hebrews 11, is the chapter of faith. It takes faith to transition. It takes faith to shift and change. Indeed faith is imperative. We have to rise into a new level of faith to lay hold of the promises of the new season of the Kingdom of God on earth. God brings us to the place of change, and calls us to rise in faith to make the change to take us into the new dimension he has for us.
In Joshua 11, the fighting got worse before it got better, but they finally had control of the land and secured themselves into the place of rest. Thirty-one kings gathered their armies as a vast hoard. Joshua immediately went again into battle and this whole vast opposition was defeated in a day!! It was a whole month’s worth of giants, taken down in one day!!
There was acceleration as they continued to establish themselves in the promises, establishing the rulership of the Kingdom of Heaven and advancing the Kingdom in their land.
I believe God is giving us accelerated opportunity to change and enable shift in our lives! The Holy Spirit’s acceleration in our lives is for advancing the Kingdom in us and through us.
It is the time and season when a month’s worth of fighting can be accomplished in a day!! At this time, expect to bring down the last of the giants!! In this time of acceleration, rise in faith and go after the enemy that is still encroaching upon your righteousness, peace and joy. In courage and faith, rise to secure the Kingdom of God in you, in health, finance, children, careers, provision, influence etc.
Bring down the many giants that have attempted to erode your inheritance: your peace, your family, your finances and your heath and enter that place of rest. We are in a season of warring into the rest!!. It is not a season when we are fighting just to hold ground, but a season when God is leading us out to secure the territory that he has promised.
Enforce your transition. Do not let strife, confusion, dissension or division rule in your life. Do not let wrong talking come from your mouth, do not let judgements of others hinder your ability to love them. Do not let offence dictate your life into the future. Be free from unforgiveness and live in the lifestyle of wholeness that God has empowered you for. Rise up and bring down these giants and establish your promised land in righteousness, peace and joy, in that order.
Shift and change will continue to be part of our worlds if we are to continue to go from glory to glory, strength to strength, built into the image of Christ.
We, the body of Christ, are shifting to rightly reflect Jesus in this world. The world is waiting for the sons and daughters of God to be manifest. (Rom.8)
Our mandate is to disciple nations and this will mean a clash of Kingdoms in the earth, as light confronts darkness to transform the nations. To see nations established in righteousness and justice will mean the church, the ecclesia, must enable transition into transformation and reformation.
Jesus was the transition for the people of God and for the whole world. The son of God came to the earth to be the transition from one era to another, from the old covenant to the new. He shifted the world into a totally new epoch, a new era!!
God is bringing the world into a new era, and this time it is the men and woman of God, who, like Jesus in this world, will enforce the transition, the shift and change to a new world order of nations being discipled and reflecting the Kingdom of Heaven on earth!
You are the transition!! You are the Shift!!
Joseph was the 11th son of Israel and it was given to him to rule for Pharaoh, the then known world and save the people from annihilation through famine. In doing so he discipled the nation. God is raising up Josephs in this transition time to disciple nations with justice and righteousness so that the Kingdom of God can be established in nations.
To take up our reign and rule in the nations, there is a process. We must embrace the process and fight to live above the ‘normal’ life and let the Spirit transition us into a naturally, supernatural lifestyle. For Joseph it was the pit and the prison that transitioned him and prepared him to rule. For Esther it was 12 months of beauty treatments, for the people of Israel to take the promised land, it was fighting to secure their boundaries and for Daniel, it was training in the King’s palace.
God will use many processes in our lives to transition us into ruling and reigning and to being his ecclesia, to rule in the earth.
In this ‘new era of glory’, God is about transition and He is fashioning His people, to be the transition. We will be about change and shift. We will be about leaving the old and stepping into the new. We will be about living in a new way for the new day. A shift and change of lifestyle into Kingdom overcoming ways is God’s plan. That we live as overcomers in this life and establish the Kingdom of God in us, as it is in heaven, is the plan.
You are the transition. You are the Shift for the nations!!
This is such an encouraging word for Australia and especially for Adelaide’s Prophets right now!!
Across the body of Christ there are many prayer events and calls to fast right now!!
God is encouraging us that He will answer the prayers of the saints to see Australia come into her destiny!!
It has been prophesied over Australia, that the ‘Sun of Righteousness will rise (over this nation) with healing in His wings!’
Turn into the contrary winds Australia and find lift over the circumstance, come up into your full identity and soar over all the power of the enemy into destiny.
“Australia Shall Lead in the Healing Of Nations” by Stephen Powell, Fort Mill, SC
The word of the Lord came to me saying, “Prophesy My son to the nation of Australia, for now is her hour to arise and shine as a global light for good, for shelter, and for the healing of nations. For out of the south of her land shall arise a mighty fire of healing revival which shall not be quenched as it travels north through the land. Lo, it has been resisted not once, but twice in this respect, but what I am bringing is an Acts 6 anointing which cannot be resisted, for My servants shall arise and speak forth the wisdom of God in the south to the north. They shall declare it as a trumpet to the north, and the north will have to listen and heed, because I, the Lord, will back these words coming from the southern prophets. They are My oracles, My mouth pieces, they will be My Moses and Aaron to the nation, for they will speak and prophesy and I, the Lord, will perform through their words. They shall herald the trumpet of God in Australia for a new day, a resetting of the clock of Heaven in this land.”
Healing for the Nations
I see the Lord balancing this nation on a dial…as a plumb-line message emerges to turn the nation back into its proper alignment before God. I see the nation turning and burning with fire, even an unquenchable fire which shall come from the south, for out of this land will come healing for the nations.
“People have left, people will leave, and these are the leaves for the healing of the nations. It began here with My servant Alexander Dowie, and when he left and was released as that wind from out of the south, there came forth the anointing for the healing of the nations, and it will yet cycle back around from this place again, an anointing for the healing of the nations. It shall shoot into Asia, and it shall burn with a fire, and this fire shall rise in prophets and healers as they go forth, and they shall heal lands with fire to the north; but they shall also prophesy against the powers of the evil one that has ruled over lands to the north for many generations.
“But behold, I, the Lord, have declared that it is time to address the iniquity to the north and address the spirit powers behind it. For there is a people whom I will have for My Bride, cleansed and spotless and purified from these roots of deception, the demonic filthiness going back generations which is in these lands like latent webs entangling its people in iniquity. But behold I shall burn through these lands like unquenchable fires, and behold they will not be able to hold back this force from Heaven which I will release out of southern Australia, for it is healing for the nations, cleansing for the nation.
“I will cause crooked pathways to be straightened, even across the sea, for you will see that I, the Lord, visit the distant islands, and stretch forth My hand with authority, and in one day I change what you have not been able to change in all your prior seasons of toiling. You will see that I, the Lord, will change it even in a day. For you have endured fishing all night and have caught nothing in these waters for all your toiling. But behold I am releasing My word for strategic apostolic harvesting, for you, Australia, shall go out with My harvesting angels.
“You shall be My sent ones, and as sent ones you will go into places at strategic times, and in those times I will open to you the floodgates of Heaven to overwhelm the enemy in these lands. It will be My suddenly which I give to you, and it will be a blitz, a suddenly thrust upon the enemy, which he will not be able to scramble quick enough to counter effectively. Behold, I have determined harvest in these lands, and these harvesting winds will flow out of southern Australia. I am the Lord.
“Leaves for the healing of the nations, it’s written in your land from the beginning. You are a balm, a people of healing for nations. You will be a part of healing Korea, hear My words. You will be a part of healing Europe, hear My words. You will be a part of healing America, hear My words. I will send soldiers out of Australia, armed for war, and they shall go into places which I, the Lord, will open up for them to go. They shall be a part of a coalition to fight evil in this day, and they shall be My soldiers on the frontlines of a conflict which I intend to bring healing through,” says the Lord.
I Will Make You Famous in Your Day
The Lord says, “There is a healing angel to the north with a large sickle and he is waiting for the movement to join him from the south, and from the south will come the thrust which has been needed,” says the Lord. “I have cultivated something in the south…a secret weapon for the nations.
“Get ready Australia, for I will make you famous in your day, Adelaide…you will be made famous in your day. It will be like the word which says that the Lord’s name was made famous through Judea, Samaria, and all those lands as the blind eyes were opened, as the cripples walked, as those with epilepsy were delivered, and as the maimed grew limbs back in the glory.
“I have storehouses of Heaven full of creative supply for the working of miracles in this new day, a day of healing, a day of wonders, a day to capture the attention of all people groups, for from this place I will bring glory to the name of Jesus, even with great power and with great fame,” says the Lord.
“Be prepared to leave, be prepared to lead, for these are the leaves of healing for the nations. Your preparation is almost complete. You shall be released in this day, you shall drop down the heavens over darkness and Hell itself in My world, and you shall be a stream in dry places. You shall be that healing I’ve purposed you to be.” (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

There is a song, sung by Anthony Warlow entitled, ‘This is the Moment’!!!
I believe that God is announcing that indeed, ‘this is the moment, this is the time’!!!
It is God’s time!
In this year of God, 5777, God himself is stepping into time to effect change and shift on the earth through his presence and his power. This is HIS moment and HIS time!!
I believe this to be one of God’s great moments in world history!!
In Noah’s time, in Abraham’s time, in Moses time, in Jesus time, God himself stepped into the world’s history to show himself as God, the God who rules the nations and shows himself strong on behalf of His people.
We are in a series of moments of moments!
Just as the Israelites, the people of God were brought out of Egypt in a series of spectacular victories over the world powers, God is releasing his people, in the same way.
We will have an opportunity to rise up and step out of the old bondages and familiar patterns of life and see remarkable shift and change into a whole new operating system and lifestyle of the Spirit.
God himself will go before us to release us with signs, wonders and miracles from His hand!!!
As the children of Israel did, we will stand in AWE of our God!!!
Joshua led the people of Israel out of the wilderness into the promised land, again through a series of spectacular divine moments when the world around them saw the power of God and his favour to his people . I believe that we are in the season where God is doing it again!!
There will be a series of remarkable events, a series of momentous moments in our lives and in world history, where we will have opportunity to grab ahold of God and shift with him out of old bondage and restrictions and into freedom and newness of life!!
God’s preparing & empowering Love.
The Father has been establishing his children in his love, the Son has been wooing his bride.
And now in this season the Lord has been preparing his bride, with the ‘spirit of the power of his might’.
I have seen the Lord, as the Warrior Bridegroom with the Host of Heavens armies, come to his bride, put the finishing touches to her veil and lift her by his grace into his chariot to ride into battle with him.
I saw the same spirit that was on Samson, come upon the bride and her veil begin to grow, just like Samson’s hair grew. As she stepped out, the chains that had her bound, snapped just like the new ropes that had Samson bound.( Judges 16:1-8) Like Samson, the bride easily broke out of the restrictions and was free from the enemy’s plan.
The Lord is endowing his people with the spirit of might, that same spirit that was upon Samson (Isa:11:2) The weapons that the enemy has used to contain us and keep us bound, we now have the power and authority to break.
As we rise again against the enemy, sickness, disease, relationship issues, fears, mental health issues, addictions that in the past season have been unable to be throw off, are now supernaturally being broken off as the spirit of the Lord, the spirit might is growing in His bride.
Through the knowledge of His love, He is empowering us to rise above all fear and grip of the enemy. He is awakening his bride. He has made her ready, Now is the time!!
Speaking of the bride, the beloved says:
SoS 7:1-8 (TPT)
‘How beautiful on the mountains are the sandalled feet of this one bringing such good news.
How you walk gracefully in my ways bringing such good news. You are truely royalty!
How you walk so gracefully in my ways displays such dignity.
You are truely the poetry of God – His very handiwork.
Out of your innermost being is flowing the fullness of my Spirit- never failing to satisfy.
Within your womb there is a birthing of harvest wheat.
They are the sons and daughters who will be nurtured by the purity you impart.
How gracious you have become!
Your life now stands tall as a tower; like a shining light on a hill.
Your revelation-eyes are pure, as pools of refreshing; sparkling light for a multitude!
Such great discernment surrounds you; protecting you from the enemy’s advance.
Redeeming love crowns you as royalty, guiding you into the fullness of humility and surrender.
Even a King is held captive by your beauty!
You stand in victory above the rest, stately and secure, as you share with me your vineyard of love.
Now I decree, “I will ascend and arise. I will take hold of you with my power, possessing every part of my fruitful bride.’
God has prepared his people to be his victorious bride upon the earth. Encountering his love and power will transform his bride and she will receive the inheritance he has for her and ultimately, give Jesus his inheritance of the nations!! (Ps2:8)
We are coming up on 5778 a year of new beginnings. As we, his bride live in the place of encounter, he will transform us to a healed, whole life, fully lived in Kingdom ways. It is a life operating in the fullness of the power of the Holy Spirit to love the world back to life!
This grace is among us for deliverance, breakthrough and shift from the world system, to life. Its a complete change- a shift into living with the new heart and the new mind that he has put within us!!
It is a shift into living as his righteous people in the land, possessing all the benefits of righteousness.
It is a step up to believe and see the great and precious promises he has for us materialise in a great harvest of loved ones saved, relationships mended, love poured out between the generations, long standing sickness healed, infirmity irradiated, disease obliterated and lives restored.
It is time to move on forward into our victory and life in the promised land!!
‘This is the Moment’
This is the moment!
This is the day,
When I send all my doubts and demons
On their way!
I have made – ever –
Is coming into play,
Is here and now – today!
This is the moment,
This is the time,
When the momentum and the moment
Are in rhyme!
Give me this moment –
This precious chance –
I’ll gather up my past
And make some sense at last!
This is the moment,
When all I’ve done –
All the dreaming,
Scheming and screaming,
This is the day
See it sparkle and shine,
When all I’ve lived for
This is the moment –
My final test –
I never reckoned,
I won’t look down,
I must not fall!
This is the moment,
The sweetest moment of them all!
This is the moment!
Forget all the odds!
This day and ever,
I’ll sit forever,
With My God!
When I look back,
I will always recall,
Moment for moment,
This was the moment,
The greatest moment
Of them all!!
by Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse
(modified for our purposes, with apologies to the song writers)
I believe we will look back at this time, and realise that we were in the one of the greatest moments in world history, for body of Christ and the advancing of the Kingdom of God on earth!!!!
This year we celebrate two momentous shifts in church and world history! The 500 year anniversary of ‘The Reformation’ and 100 year anniversary of the ‘Light Horse Charge’ in Beersheba, are both celebrated Oct.31st.
These events bought freedom to the body of Christ , to Israel and to nations!!
On Nov.11, (12 days later) we remember all those who gave their lives to ensure for our nation.
In these 12 days, we are believing again for moments that redefine, reform and shift the church and our nation of Australia back under the Government of God!!
We will commemorate these dates in worship and decree enthroning Jesus as Lord over Australia in 12 strategic locations, in 12 days around the nation, decreeing, ’Do it again Lord, shift our nation into freedom!’
Join us! Come ‘Shift the Nation’: 12 CITIES, 12 DAYS – 1 SHIFT!! Oct.31- Nov.11 2017!!
He’s Coming on the Clouds – Kings and Kingdoms will bow down!!
Cyclone Debbie is a prophetic picture of the statement that God spoke for this year!!
‘He’s coming on the clouds – Kings and Kingdoms will bow down!!!
In Ps.29, we read of God displaying His power. He is doing that across the nations in every dimension of life; political and social.
Please be assured, I am not saying that God sent cyclone Debbie to bring havoc and destruction.
I am simply using what we are seeing in the natural as a prophetic glimpse of what is happening in the spiritual realm.
!n this year of God (777) we are seeing God step down into earth to interrupt the course of history and to shift his people and nations out of old oppressive man made structures and into overcoming freedom and victory!!
When God moves into the earth, he moves on the storm. 2 Sam 22:10 – 51!!!!
Cyclone Debbie, coming from the north east and coming into Australia, is a prophetic picture declaring God himself is moving in Australia Now and it’s giving us insight into How He is moving at this time!
Cyclone Debbie was a large system with a wide eye. I hear God saying:
My eye is upon you Australia. In the midst of the storm I am your safe place, I am your calm and I am doing among you what only I can do!!!
I am shaking and shifting, I am uprooting and pulling down old structures. I am levelling old systems and moving waterways and boundaries that have been erected that have not been in line with my plans and purposes for this nation.
This nation has run ahead relying on her own understanding and has established unrighteous boundaries and unjust laws that are oppressing my people and the people of the land. The minorities and the poor are burdened by what officials are seeking to help them with.
My people are oppressed. Authorities have thrown off the restraints of godly laws and have allowed the enemy to pillage and rob from this land and from my people.
I AM enlarging and intensifying My presence in Australia now. I have My eye upon the nations. MY EYE IS ON YOU! Australia!.’ I am looking to see how you will respond to My presence, for I come with an invitation to KNOW Me and make Me KNOWN.
As the stormed raged, we were cautioned to stay inside. In fact for 3 days, most all of Queensland was in doors!! I believe God is speaking that in this time of blowing winds, flying debris, and shifting structures, we are to cleave to him.
‘You are the apple of My eye.’ Sons and daughters of God, in the midst of the storm, I am your calm. I am your peace. I am your safe place.
Come close to me. Stay close to me. I am calling you closer to listen for my voice. I am in your midst ‘ to show you great and mighty things that you do not know!!! ‘ (Jer.33:3)
Position yourself in Me, in the ‘eye’ of the storm and stay at peace. Gain faith, insight and great clarity for your future.
In the fury of the storm, structures begin to shake and shudder. Unstable structures are bought down. In the midst of the storm there is an opportunity for change. The wind and waves give opportunity for everything that does not have a solid foundation to be moved.
I am rising in the midst of the storm to shift and change, to uproot and pull down the ungodly structures that have contained my people and kept them living outside of my will and purposes. The church in many ways have abandoned righteous laws and gone after gods of prosperity and wealth and riches that are not gods at all. Self has been manifest in this nation and my people do not represent me as they should.
I am rising across this nation to show myself as the God of this nation. I will rescue the poor and oppressed, for I have heard their cry and I have come to pull my people up out of the oppression and into the light of my love and my glory.
I am riding on the wings of the wind and I will make myself known across this nation and the things that are not built on a firm foundation will topple and you will see my righteous right arm in the midst of the storm.
You will see my people who know me, rise into prominent positions, for I am positioning My people to effect change across this land and to bring Australia into position. You will see this land change. The status quo is sifting and I will have my nation back: Secure and founded upon righteous foundations, that are the foundations of my throne.
For I am am raising up a holy nation, to call other nations of the earth to align with my kingdom so that I may establish my throne in the midst of the nations.
In the midst of the storm, God is showing himself strong to bring down old unrighteous structures that have built up around us and are now containing us and limiting our freedom.
God is allowing the storms. He is using the whirlwinds to stir and shift the status quo. The current status quo is hostile to the things of God. Ungodly structures that need demolishing are being bought down, so that God’s Kingdom, laid on the foundations of righteousness and justice can be established in your life and in this nation.
For you will command a new future and a new way for the new era. Command new righteous paths and erect the ancient boundaries and gates across the land that I have positioned and that were my original intent for this nation. The ancient paths must be re established and the ancient boundary stones set in place!!
Cyclone Debbie, is highlighting the Prophet Deborah in Judges 4.
The people of Israel lived under much oppression until Deborah chose to take a stand.
’Until I Deborah arose, arose a mother in Israel!’
Cyclone Debbie has made her presence felt across Australia. It is time for the women warriors of this nation to make their presence felt!!!
It is time for each ‘mother’ to rally the troops to fight, for it is time to shift the course of this nation!!
Women of God, Mothers, Prophets, Leaders, Righteous Judges, Women with the voice of the Lord in their mouths, all across Australia, It’s time to take a stand!!
I AM going before you to give you favour. I have fashioned and formed you , I have prepared you and you have come to this generation and this nation, for such a time as this.
Do NOT waiver and do not fear and do not doubt that I have called you to the battle lines in this day!!
Rise in your authority as mothers of this nation. You who have a heart for the nation and the generations, you who are leaders, gather your troops. It is time to rise up together and enforce the victory of the Lord across the nation!
‘One day she (Deborah) sent for Barak….. Call out 10,000 warriors!!!
Then Deborah said to Barak, Get ready!! This is the day the Lord will give you victory over Sisera, for the Lord is marching ahead of you!!! ‘so Barak led his 10,00 warriors down the slopes of Mt. Tabor into battle’ (Judges 4:14)
It is time for War!!
I AM calling my warriors, to stand in your authority in the land. Those with authority to lead, stand in your righteousness and in the call of God upon your life. Stand in your mantel, take up your shield, it is time to go to war!!
Deborah’s rise across the land. Make your presence felt!! You who have heard from heaven, it is time to implement the strategy you have heard and enforce victory over the enemy.
Take up your courage, speak to the Barak’s in your sphere of authority. Call them to rally the troops. You who are leaders, rally the troops!!
You who are the Barak’s across the nation. You who have troops that you have equipped and trained, now is the time to call them to war!!
You who are warriors, Hear the word of the Lord. It is time for war!! It is time to fight!!
God has called us to a ‘battle’ in this season. He is planning to win the war over this nation. His plan is to shift out the powers of the enemy that are oppressing this nation and re-establish our nation as a righteous nation with godly laws under godly government.
He is planning on sifting this nation to the ways of His Kingdom, so that all people may live free from oppression and strife.
He is calling His people NOW!! Now is the opportune time!!
God has already given us a strategy for the battle.
He had said, take 12 days and enthrone me in praise at the Heart (Uluru), the Gates ( 12 strategic locations) and the Hill ( the hill of government -Canberra).
However the Lord has been highlighting that there are not only gates at the port cities of the nation, but there are gates to the 7 mountains, there are gates at the north, south, east and westerly points. There are also strategic gates, all across the inland of our nations where indigenous nations have meet around waterholes and sacred sights for thousands of years.
There is opportunity to enthrone Jesus all across this nation in every location you believe is strategic to the Kingdom!!
Barak, rallied 10,000 troops. Can we find 10,000 troops across this nation, who will rise an an army over the 12 days of Oct.31st – Nov.11?
Can we rally across this nation in key locations, lift high praises that enthrone Jesus and make decrees to shift this nation back under the government of God?
Hear the word of the Lord! Hear what the Spirit is saying to the church!
Hear the trumpet call!!
There is a sound of marching in the poplar trees!! (2Sam.5:24)
The Lord, as he did for Barak, is surely marching ahead of us, his army!!!
Troops, man your posts!! Take up your authority!!
Warriors Arise!!! It’s time for War!!
We have now spent 6 months of preparation in prayer.
However, as from July 1, we are stepping into prayer and declarations over the ‘hill’ of Government! In preparation for that, I sensed the Lord’s encouragement to enter this season in fasting.
Daniel was a prophet in scripture who was able to effect a governmental shift in his nation through prayer and fasting. Likewise Esther also effected a governmental shift in her nation through fasting and making decrees.
As we begin to pray in the month of July for the ‘hill’ of government in our land, to see the results that Daniel and Esther saw , we must do what Daniel and Esther did; pray and fast and fashion decrees for our nation.
Daniel who prayed from his window 3 times a day, he also fasted, and Esther called the whole nation to fast with her and fashioned decrees for her nation.
I believe that God is calling us in the month of July, to prayer and fasting.
Will you join me, as far as you are able, from July1 – July 28, for 4 weeks of prayer and fasting like Daniel on vegetables and water and prayer 3 times a day. Then for the last 3 days of July, 29,30 & 31st., would you join me on an Esther fast. A 3 day fast with no food or water, to fashion decrees for our nation.
I was asking the Lord for confirmation as I felt him drawing me to a time of fasting.In this year of 5777, I was impressed to look up the number ‘777’ in Strong’s concordance. The Greek word ,777, is ‘asitos:’ – without eating, fasting!! I had my answer!!!
These fasts are extreme, but I believe we are in extreme times. It is not every generation or prayer warrior, that has the privilege to witness and is called to usher in a ‘new era’ upon the earth. We are in a kiros time of God initiated monumental shifts across the globe and throughout the body of Christ.
In this year 5777, the year of God, God has made his presence felt across the nations and He is not backing down. He is asking us, His ecclesia on the earth, to rise in this kiros time and enforce his will & plans on the earth.
We have been called to commemorate ‘the Reformation’ (500yrs), the Charge of the Light Horse; (100yrs) and incorporating remembrance day, not just to remember, but to re-enforce the same victories that were won!! God is using this commemoration to ’shift’ a nation back to living in the fulness of His Kingdom power and presence that was won and established at the time of these victories. He is asking us to give our lives, as these warriors did, to see victories won!!
Now it is time to move with Him to bring order out of the choas, to take up our authority and decree governmental alignment of this nation with the kIngdom of Heaven. In this ‘epic’ season upon the earth, let’s take this privileged opportunity to make an ‘epic shift’ and ‘release of His power and authority’ in the earth.
God is extending grace to strengthen us, grace to overcome, grace to rest in HIs ability with strength and power over enemy resistance.
Chuck Pierce shared:
Dutch Sheets in his preach, used several number sequences to describe what the Lord is doing in the world and His Kingdom people. The last number sequence was 5-5-5. Five (5) is the number for grace! He said, “I keep seeing 5-5-5…it’s Triple Grace. It’s a Season of GRACE!” He went on to share how:
There’s GRACE to go up higher to a new administration and governmental realm. • There’s GRACE to come out of the confusion, disarray and disorder. • There’s GRACE to bind and loose. • There’s GRACE to open doors and close doors. • There’s not just GRACE or Double GRACE, but TRIPLE GRACE! The LORD is going to release an explosion of grace!
“These are days of receiving and extending MEGA GRACE!” Before the service, someone had come to give me a water bottle with 5-5-5 written on the outside with three $5 bills inside. I went up and shared this when Dutch released the word, and he shouted: ”I’m telling you – it’s a Word from the Lord! It’s an explosion of GRACE! We’re about to move into a MEGA GRACE Season! I’m not decreeing that just as a hope; I’m prophesying to you as a Word from the Lord. We’re about to move into a MEGA GRACE season that will be explosive in nature! Dynamite Grace, Dunamis Grace, Power and Grace mixed together. There is an EXPLOSION of the miraculous coming.” He then decreed how there will be: • An Explosion of PROVISION! • An Explosion of REVELATION! • An Explosion of AUTHORITY! • An Explosive Level of HARVEST and STRENGTH! This is a season for TRIPLE GRACE…GRACE, GRACE, GRACE! This is the time for MEGA GRACE, MEGA HEALING, MEGA DELIVERANCE, and MEGA BREAKTHROUGH! This is a time for the GRACE of GOD to be released over: • your mind, • your home, • your ministry, • and over generational weaknesses, infirmities, and iniquities!
What the enemy has had in you and in your family line for generations will be broken by the explosion of grace that’s coming to you! This is your season of breakthrough! Fear will be broken off of you in this season. Generational weaknesses and iniquities will be bound and broken off of you. Perversions and addictions that try to rise up again will be eradicated from your DNA and genetic code. God is breaking that off of you because GRACE is greater than the sin of your parents and grandparents; every generational iniquity and weakness that the enemy has used to hold you back will be broken. Generational poverty and failure are being broken off of you because an EXPLOSION of GRACE is coming to you NOW! 21-Day Prayer Focus for You to Shout GRACE and Receive FAVOR! Day 1: Read Romans 6! Grace is kindness and goodness shown without regard to the worth or merit of the one who receives and in spite of what is deserved. Day 2: Read Exodus 34! Grace is one of the key attributes of God. The Lord God is “merciful and gracious, long-suffering, and abounding in goodness and truth.” Day 3: Read Psalm 23! Grace is the source of help and brings deliverance from distress. Day 4: Meditate on Deut. 9:5-6! The Hebrew people from Egypt were redeemed and then established in the Promised Land in spite of their unrighteousness. Day 5: Read Psalms 4:1, 6:2, 25:15! Receive the gracious assistance from the LORD! Day 6: Read and meditate on Psalm 31:9, 86:3, 86:16, 123:3! Receive more assistance! Day 7: Meditate on Amos 5:15! Grace is only enjoyed within the COVENANT. The gift is given by God, and the gift is received by man, through repentance and faith.
Day 8: Ponder Malachi 1:9 and read Malachi 3-4! Grace is to be humbly sought through the prayer of faith. Day 9: Read John 1, Acts 1! The grace of God was supremely revealed and given in the person and work of Jesus Christ. He was the embodiment of grace. Embracing Him is the only way mankind can receive salvation. Day 10: Read Romans 3, especially verses 23-26! Grace is restoration of the broken fellowship between God and His people – both Jew and Gentile. Day 11: Read Ephesian 2! Grace can be yours through SALVATION! Day 12: Read Ephesians 4! Meditate on Hebrews 10:29! Grace is applied by the HOLY SPIRIT, who is called “the Spirit of grace.” The Spirit of God is the One who binds Christ to His people so that they receive forgiveness, adoption to sonship, and newness of life, as well as every spiritual gift of grace. ”This is the time for MEGA GRACE, MEGA HEALING, MEGA DELIVERANCE, and MEGA BREAKTHROUGH!” Day 13: Read Acts 4, especially verse 33! Receive great grace. Great grace was upon the Early Church. They saw great miracles. The Greek word for “great” is “megas”, from which we derive the English word “mega.” They saw great signs, great wonders, great miracles…mega miracles! Why did they see mega miracles? Because they had mega grace!!!!! Receive Favor! Day 14: Read Isaiah 60! Grace and FAVOR are a necessary handshake for triumph! Favor is where someone shines their eye on you and you begin to SHINE! Day 15: Read 2 Kings 4:1-6! Favor is received through an act of obedience! Day 16: Read 2 Kings 8:1-6! Favor is extended to you from another source! Day 17: Read Ruth 2! Think of a time when favor was extended to you. Praise God for it! Day 18: Read 1 Kings 12:1-16 and Esther 6. Think of someone you need to honor. Call or write that person to honor them. Honor must be reciprocated to maintain favor. Day 19: Read Matthew 9! Favor comes from those who have authority to release favor. Day 20: Read Judges 1:12-15 and 2 Samuel 9! Favor can be released by you! Day 21: Read Zechariah 3 and 4. Decree that the Lord is reclothing you with a new identity. Shout grace to the mountains that stopped you from advancing in the last season. Shout grace seven times! These are days of receiving and extending MEGA GRACE!
In the Light of the New Day – Take Down the Giants before you!!
It is the dawning of the new day!!! It has been prophesied and talked of. It has been declared and waited on. It has been looked for and watched for in the night season, and I declare, a new day is beginning to dawn!!
As you are aware, the new day is calculated form the midnight hour. In the dark hours of the night, it is hard to discern that one day has ended and another has begun. It is hard to detect that anything has changed. Before the dawn, we can only see in black and white. We can only just make out the outline and shape of objects. We get only glimpses and shadows of what is really there. But, the sun is rising!!
And I hear the Lord say:
For too long you have waited in the early dawn. For too long you have sat wondering when the light will appear?
I say to you, the daylight has broken through when you weren’t watching. While you have been lying in your beds dozing, wondering when my light would come, you have missed my rising dawn. There is already enough light for you to find your way. You have been slumbering in the early morning, but I have completed the work of the night season and it is time for you to step into your new day. Throw off the blankets of the night and come into my morning light!! Come out from behind your doors, step into the new light of the day.
My light has come!! My time is now!! You have all you need! Your preparation is over and it is time for you to leap into your new day. It is time to leap forward into the new world that I have opened for you.
If you will rise, you will see the new way before you! You will see that I have opened the way, you will see the door that you have been searching for in the dark, is now wide open!!!
The light has come, the day has dawned, the heat is spreading across the earth, the seeds are beginning to incubate, there is a great harvest emerging across the nation.
Look and see and prepare to go, for I AM positioning you for a great harvest.
Mine is the kingdom, mine is the power and mine is the glory!! Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought. My power is freely available to be demonstrated through you, my body. Be careful that you do not take the glory, to yourself as you see my glory begin to explode across the nations. Stay humble and contrite of heart, I will allow you to be my donkey, if you will stay lowly and humble.
I Am that I Am is manifesting!! I AM manifesting in every way you have desired, for my desire is for the nations and I have prepared you and preserved you for this time. Now I have come and I am untying you , my donkey and you will feel me with you and upon like you have never experienced.
I will ride forth on you, in all my authority and in great humility for I come to seek and to save the lost from every corner of the world.
I am bringing down Kings and nobles I am elevating others in their place and I will build up nations and I will tear down others and I will have you work with me from the palace to the pulpit, from the workplace to the walking machine, from the beauty parlour to the slums, from the west to the east from the north to the south, for MY DAY has come!!
Step into the new day of my power!! Do not be alarmed to see who I will use to achieve my purposes in this day of my power. Rejoice that I have overcome and through me, many will overcome in this life and you will see the transformation of my people, my body in the earth.
For I did not call many wise or noble, but those who are lowly and rejected, maligned and despised. It is they who will carry my glory to the ends of the earth!!
So as you navigate and understand the new day, the new season, the new epoch, Know that a new fresh clarity is here. Where you have struggled to ‘see clearly’ what I AM doing, now as you awaken to the full sun of day, you will see clearly in this new day. I have been forming new wineskins in the secret place, preparing containers for the new wine of my Spirit I AM pouring out! I Am faithfully transforming and moulding new wineskins to contain the new wine. I AM ‘re-shaping’ , re-moulding, fixing and shifting my body in preparation for the end -time harvest.
‘Here comes the sun’!! The day is breaking – everything is clearer and light and colour is appearing. Fresh new understanding will explode before you as light and colour and clarity come into view.
The sun is coming up on this new day, you will see more clearly and comprehend and be able to function now in great clarity and with great productivity. When the sun comes up, those sleeping, will spring ‘to life!’ The sun of righteousness is rising and giving sight and life to this new day of his power!!
Open up your eyes! Watchmen the day that you have longed for is beginning to break!!!
Rejoice, you can see clearly now the sun has come!!
Embrace the dawning of your destiny!! Make a clear path for your feet. Clear the roadway!! The ‘camels are coming’ – every supply you need is walking into your world,
All the provisions for life and godliness that have been hidden from you in the dark, will now be visible in the light!!
Life is waking up all around you!! Sing with creation, Rejoice!! your new day is upon you!!
Body of Jesus Christ – This is your day!!
Rejoice, you can now also see the giants clearly and it is time to take them out!!!
Those giants that are manifesting right now – God is causing them to come out of hiding.
Like Goliath – you cannot miss them or their taunts, so go after them. Don’t be intimidated, it’s time to run at them!!
IT’S TIME TO GO UP AGAINST THE GIANTS – IT’S TIME TO OVERCOME YOUR ENEMY!!
Rise UP!! How dare this giant, defy you!! a soldier in the army of the living God!
Like David, find your five smooth stones – your weapons and words of authority, that will bring the enemy down. Don’t go to someone else to put their armour on. Ask the Lord for your word and plan of action against the giant in your situation.
God is giving out simple, uncomplicated plans of confrontation that will defeat the enemy that up until now has oppressed you and kept you in his grip.
No More!! Not any longer!!! Now is the time that this enemy is defeated!!!
Rise in your authority and don’t cower before this enemy that is manifesting.
It is time for Him to come down and for you to possess your inheritance!
The Israelites had not been able to defeat the ‘Philistines’ in all the time that they were in the promised land. In the time of David, here they are again harassing and taunting Israel.
The enemy that has harassed you and has taunted you and you have been unable to overcome for many years, that same enemy, God has a plan for you to finally take out of your life!! You will overcome them this time!!
This time, like David, step into your destiny as a warrior who takes out giants and like David, it will be the beginning of taking possession of all your inheritance!!
Today!!! I heard the sound of marching in the poplar trees!!, God’s army is marching ahead of you.
It’s time to make a move on the enemy and see victory over the enemy that you have fought but has had the upper hand for many years.
Square off against this enemy. Make a clear declaration of victory! Find your weapons of offence. Simple weapons that the Spirit will reveal to you, for this time now!!!
Move forward and release your weapons.
And when your enemy topples – take off HIs head!! Be ruthless to cut this enemy completely out of your life!!
Then be sure to make a display of Him openly. Show off to your friends the victory that you have had and make a ‘show of the enemy openly,’ just like Jesus did with his enemies!!
Across the globe, the body of Christ in nations have cried out to the one true God for help!!
This is your day! The Lord has come to take back His nations!!
The Lord has heard the cry of His people and He has rescued you!!
America, England, God has ‘shifted’ you. France, North Korea, God is ‘shifting you!!
Australia, Laugh with the Kookaburras!! The dawning of the new day is upon you!
In the words of a very old tune:
“All over the world, the Spirit is moving.
All over the world, as the prophets said it would be,
All over the world, there’s a mighty revelation,
Of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea!!
There is a trumpet call released in the Spirit, calling the warriors of God to rise out of any distraction, out of despair, out of slumber, and answer the call of the Spirit to ‘shift’ our nation of Australia, to the government of God!!
Now is the time to find your troop, mount your horse and ride forth as warriors, positioned to fight alongside the Host of Heavens armies.
In Joshua 5:13-15
13 When Joshua was near the town of Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with sword in hand. Joshua went up to him and demanded, “Are you friend or foe?”
14 “Neither one,” he replied. “I am the commander of the Lord’s army.”
At this, Joshua fell with his face to the ground in reverence. “I am at your command,” Joshua said. “What do you want your servant to do?”
15 The commander of the Lord’s army replied, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did as he was told.
Like in Joshua’s time, the captain of the Host, is approaching his troops and He is announcing his arrival. We have the privilege of falling in line with Him. We are on His side, if we will kneel,(surrender) and take off our shoes (yield to his holy righteous ways) and choose to follow him into the fight. We have the privilege of overcoming alongside Him, for He is the God that causes us to WIN!!
There have been legions of angels messengers of God sent to minister to the heirs of salvation) released in this nation. It is the Host of Heaven’s armies amassing across the land. They are here to engage and enforce victory of the Kingdom of Heaven alongside the army of God in the earth!
As part of Bruce’s birthday celebration our Firehouse Team went to enjoy ‘the Outback Spectacular – A Salute to the Australian Lighthorse.’ The central theme was the charge of Beersheba and the victory of that battle that liberated Jerusalem!
We all went expecting to hear God speak to us concerning ‘Shift the Nation.’ We were not disappointed. In seeing the story again, God re-enforced and highlighted a number of things to us.
We will use this list over the next few weeks to pray and decree over the warriors of God and the nation.
1. We saw the courage and spirit of determination in the ‘Lighthorse’ and God spoke that it would take the same spirit of determination and courage to ‘Shift the Nation’.
The Lighthorse spirit was condensed to 4 traits : courage, mateship, endurance and sacrifice. We saw a focus, fearlessness, and determination in every rider!
Pray: for the ‘Spirit of the Lighthorse’ to rise again across Australia in the troops of God.
Decree: A courageous spirit is rising in the heart of the people of God!! A Lighthorse spirit of courage, endurance, mateship a:nd sacrifice, is being established in the army of God!
2. I felt the Lord say, ‘as the ‘Lighthorse’ liberated Beersheba, the troops he is raising up now across the nation today will, with this same spirit, ‘shift’ and liberate Australia!! The Lord showed us that the charge of Beersheba was a justice issue. Jerusalem was a city and nation occupied and oppressed since before Christ. This was the defining step in the re-establishing of Israel again as a nation. There is an angel of justice who is leading the charge to ‘shift’ Australia at this time. God wants this nation to live in freedom and glory and fulfil the destiny upon her life.
Pray: For justice to be released across our nation. That all forms of injustice will be overturned and the Spirit of the Lord will liberate the oppressed.
Pray that Australia will be ‘set free’ to fulfil her destiny.
Decree: Australia! Come into the fullness of the call of God!!
3. We saw that these troops did things differently than the enemy expected. They didn’t dismount to fight , which is the usual way of the cavalry. They charged straight ahead over the top of the guns and then used their swords while still mounted. I believe the Lord is saying there will be new and different ways to fight. There will be new strategies for the battle. I believe they will be strategies that we cause us not to slow down but to move forward with speed and momentum in the battle. There was a charge forward and no one was distracted or stopped or pulled back. They were focused, fast and only going faster as they went toward the enemy. We will not be stopping to fight at the roadblocks along the way, we will continue forward running right over them. Keep moving !!! Keep momentum!
Pray: for new strategies of pray, praise and worship to be released for the battle.
Pray that we will will keep momentum and keep moving forward.
Decree: Forward HO!!!
4. We noted they rode ‘As One’. They didn’t break ranks, they all ran together! They moved forward in formation. It’s a Joel 2 army that doesn’t jostle one another or break ranks but moves together in their assigned position.
Pray: That every warrior is in position, rank, file and troop. That everyone knows and operates in their position.
Pray: that unity will be established across the armed forces of the Lord as we fight against a common enemy for a common cause!
Decree: We fight ‘AS ONE!!’
5. We saw they were ‘light’ horse; horses that were used for ‘light’ duties, riding, pulling buggies etc., They were horses that did not carry a lot of baggage, fit and agile. They were a company unencumbered, without baggage, battle fit and able. They were also’ light’ horse warriors – warriors of the LIGHT! As lighthorse warriors we move forward bringing LIGHT into the land. We move forward without baggage, unencumbered able to fully reflect the light of the Kingdom of God. A company of ready, willing and able warriors of the Kingdom of Light!
Pray: For the light of Christ to be fully reflected through us, his light horse as we rideforward.
Pray: Pray that every encumbrance fall off and we move forward in freedom and truth.
Decree: Let the LIGHT of Christ shine out across the nation.
6. We also knew that this particular lighthorse troop had among their ranks ‘ first nation warriors.’ Men together from the Northern Rivers District of NSW, were those that rode in the charge. They rode together with with equal standing, equally equipped and with equal responsibility as troops charging forward. God has called us together as one people, to ride together, side by side, with equal resource and responsibility to charge forward and win the battle. Together as one people, the holy people of God, I believe God is calling all his people across this nation, to enforce His victory in this nation.
Pray: That first nation people will be honoured across this land as they choose to lead the charge together with every other nation represented in the
Decree: ‘AS ONE!!’
7. It is well know that the horses could smell the water at the wells. They hadn’t had water for 36 hours and they did not want to pull up in the charge. ‘Can you smell the water? Smell the water – the horses are snorting, there is anticipation in the air! Anticipation for the water of life to be freely available. When the light horsemen won the battle, the wells were freely available to all!!
Pray: that each one is at the ready. Looking for the living water.
Pray: for the liberation of the wells of salvation. Pray that they enemy who has denied access to the wells of salvation because of his stronghold in the
land will be thawed and there will be breakthrough that gives access to the wells of living water !! the the knowledge of salvation will freely flow and be
released to all.
Decree: Charge!!! It is time for the Lighthorse to ride again!!
Mount your horses! (the Holy Spirit beneath you, positioning you for the fight)
Since the beginning of the Jewish New Year 5777, we have been in a remarkable season of ‘remaking’ us and moulding us further into His image. Jesus is committed to us coming into victory and after we have contended, possessing our promised land!
These days in the lead up to Christmas, are days not to be distracted with the Christmas ‘stuff’, but to simplify the preparations (God will go before you) and catch the flow of His Spirit in ordering our ways and our steps.
In this time, press in, for we must find our position in Him and in the flow of His Spirit, for His spirit is being released NOW!!
Don’t miss the day of His visitation!! I believe He is visiting His body and calling us into a whole new dimension of His spirit!!
A storm is swirling, but He is in the storms!!
As I looked, I saw a great storm coming from the north, driving before it a huge cloud that flashed with lightning and shone with brilliant light.
The turbulence, wind, lightnings and thunder is making a way for Him!!. He is crashing in upon our world and He is coming ‘ to judge righteously and to make war!!’ ( Rev.19:11).
God is coming to make war on your behalf!!
He died for your freedom and He continues to fight for it.
It is an injustice for you to be sick, because Jesus has paid the price for your healing. It is an injustice for you to live in poverty, because Jesus paid the price to give you everything you need. It is an injustice for you to live in any form of bondage, because the price has been paid for your release!!
“Comfort, Comfort my people!”
The Lord has set this time to come to His people and bring comfort.
He is bringing comfort by releasing us from unrighteousness and injustice.
Where the enemy has raged against all peoples and nations, especially against the body of Christ, the Lord himself is rising to comfort his people. He has heard the cry of our heart. He is setting us free from the chains that have bound us to unbelief, injustice, fear, lack and unrighteousness.
A voice of one is calling out,
“Clear the way for the Lord in the wilderness [remove the obstacles];
Make straight and smooth in the desert a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be raised,
And every mountain and hill be made low;
And let the rough ground become a plain,
And the rugged places a broad valley.’
The Lord has released his preparation anointing.
The one who is crying in the wilderness was John the Baptist with the spirit of Elijah upon him. This anointing ‘turns the Hearts of the Fathers to the children and the hearts of the children to the Fathers.
Malachi 4:6 Amplified Bible
He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers [a reconciliation produced by repentance], so that I will not come and strike the land with a curse [of complete destruction].”
Luke 1:17 Amplified Bible
It is he who will go as a forerunner before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers back to the children, and the disobedient to the attitude of the righteous [which is to seek and submit to the will of God]—in order to make ready a people [perfectly] prepared [spiritually and morally] for the Lord.”
The preparation is the preparation of our hearts.
The wilderness is the wilderness of our own lives that have been ravaged by the enemy’s lies that we have believed. We have turned from the ways of the Lord, the ways of righteousness. Our lives have been broken and destroyed by unrighteousness that has allowed the enemy to make inroads into our life.
Through these inroads he has damaged our lives and taken us into places in which we have been captured and then sold into injustice by others who have put their own desires above ours!!
Hearts must turn from selfish ambition ( wherein there is every kind of sin) to hearts of unselfish love that puts the children’s needs before our own needs. Hearts of love must be cultivated to cause the younger generation to care for the older generation above themselves.
Is 40:8 Amplified
The grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God stands forever.
Many have come and gone down the generations, but the prophetic word that God proclaimed remains.
Scripture tells us He watches over His word to perform it.
There are words that the Lord has spoken over you and over your family. The Lord will Not forget these, He is surely coming to war on your behalf to see His promise to you fulfilled.
There are prophetic words proclaimed over Australia as the great south land of the Holy Spirit that God has come to fulfil.
He is rising with the Hosts of Heavens armies at this time to enforce victory for his people and promises fulfilled!!
It is YOUR Time!I It is Australia’s Time!!
Praise Him in this season! Rejoice in His goodness! Delight in His power of deliverance!
Look for our Prayer outline for ‘Strike the Nation’ coming out in time for the new year!
