Sunday Night and into the AM hours of Monday, I felt a shifting in the realm of the spirit.
While I felt this shift, I was seeking the Lord and in the midst of conversation I heard Him say, "09 has been a great year of transition for my People, An intense season of warfare."
The Lord showed me and pressed upon my spirit that,
We should not lose heart, and we should stay focused on the prize that He has set before us. We must continue to keep a proper perception for our future. If we can perceive it, we will receive it. If we can see it, we will attain it!
Without Vision (prophetic revelation) God's people perish. This is a
season were we cannot afford to be caught without the Lords vision for
the future and without an understanding of our placement within that
The shift will take us well into 2010.
This will be a year of fullness and I believe a time of relative rest
from the attacks of the enemy for those who have found themselves in
such an intense escalation of warfare in 2009. 2010 will mark a year of the tithe that belongs to the Lord. It will be as we reevaluate the last decade and prepare our hearts for the next 2 years that this will occur. I believe as in Mal 3 The Lord will rebuke the devourer for the sake of His believing and tithing church!
2011 will be again another great time of transition for the body.
But if we have prepared our hearts properly through 2009-2010, the
transition should be relatively smooth, and the warfare of the enemy
will not have the penetrating force it seemed to have in 2009. However
our safety and our refuge in the coming days will be dependent upon our
ability to hear the Shepherd's voice and not following a stranger into
paths of deception and destruction.
2012 will mark the greatest advancements in the Kingdom, I believe since the Reformation.
I have spoken much on 2012. However, I will recap and say, it will be a year of apostolic alignment. The
Apostles of God will be positioned once again to begin a brand new work
in a previously pastorally ruled church (a Church ruled by pastors
instead of apostles). This means that in the next 2 and
half years great upheaval will continue, tearing down the old, so that
planting and building will become assessable in the coming days. Great
Shifts will occur and great judgments will be released into the earth;
these judgments may seem harsh and even scary, however these judgments
will be made in favor of the saints, and God has prepared Goshen for
But He who began a good work will finish it!
Christ will build His church and the gates of hell will not prevail
against it! Eventually we will see a total reformation of what we once
thought was the church, and Great Advancements will be made into the
earth as we disciple nations.
