OCTOBER WORD OF THE LORD Understanding Times and Seasons – A Word by Dr. Carolyn G. Anderson
What’s in store for us this OCTOBER (RE-BOT-CO)
OCTOBER is the month of Redemption, Double Grace, Birthing, Recalibration and Preparation for the BIG SHIFT that’s coming in November to walk in authority and power in December.
October is the first month of the last Quarter in the Gregorian Calendar and the first full month of the 1st Quarter in the New Year 5778. So, October is truly a time to birth forth something new while in preparation for what November and December will bring. It is like giving physical birth, the anticipation of seeing the baby is excited and fun.
October is the month to start preparing for the change of the Season. Whether we like it or not, the season is changing and Nature understands and operates according to Times and Seasons and so shall God’s people prepare for the time and seasons that’s at hand. Nature does not wait for the season to come to it’s fullness, rather they prepare for it, so that when it does come they are ready.
According to Ecclesiastes 3:1-4 NIV, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance…”
It is time to draw from deep within to sustain you for the seasons that’s at hand. It’s harvest time and time for you to make a withdraw from the seeds that you have sown.
Have you ever wondered why do the leaves on trees change color?
They change color because the trees know that the roots will need extra nutrients to survive during the winter months, so they begin to draw nutrients (chlorophyll) from the leaves to sustain itself. Thus, the leaves get weak and fall off the tree. Through the winter season, the root of the tree is sustained from the in-filling (chlorophyll).
Therefore the in-filing of the Holy Spirit is so essential because it provides what is needed when you run low or going through a rough season. Nevertheless, prepare for the harvest. It’s time to reap and to draw from what you have SOWN.
Happy New Year! We have stepped over into the Biblical New Year 5778 on 9.21.17 and many are anticipating the new beginnings that are at hand.
So, what is God saying about the 4 recent hurricanes and storms? What message does the Eclipse say? According to Acts 2:20 NIV is states “The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.”
Harvey – Texas
Irma – Florida
Jose – New York
Maria – Puerto Rico
Most hurricanes arise from the cold water from the North mixing with Hot water in the South and the Caribbean to create Lukewarm water. The Lukewarm water starts to spew itself out and create havoc as mentioned in Revelation 3:14-17 NIV “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation.  I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!  So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.  You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.”
In REVELATIONS, it talks about being hot or being cold, as being Lukewarm is not a good thing. God hates it. It’s a place of complacent and mediocrity and you don’t really stand for anything.
Why do hurricanes have eyes and not ears or toes? Why eyes?
What’s the eye to the body?
Naturally it is the vehicle (organ) that you use to see. However spiritually the Bible says the eye is the light of the body as written in Matthew 6:22-23 NIV “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.  But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!”
So in essence God is speaking to His Church and saying, being Lukewarm causes storms to arise and it’s a wakeup call for the Church to not be lukewarm, but to be on fire for the King. God wants to send Heaven on Earth, but He need to Church to get in position and be able to see His Kingdom with a spiritual eye and not be complacent. The body of believers should come out of darkness and be the light of the world and the change agents that we are.

TEN – the Number of Redemption
God loves us so much that He’s ready to Redeem us and see us be SET FREE. Ten (10) is the NUMBER OF REDEMPTION. Anytime God is getting ready for redemption and freedom, you will see the signs in the number 10.
There were 10 Plagues that were sent and used to REDEEM the children of Israel from the hands of the Egyptians. The 10th plague was the worst of all and was what truly made the Pharaoh, LET THE PEOPLE GO!
The 10 Commandments were given to redeem us from bondage so that the children of Israel had a guide to use when deciding.
Giving of a 10th – a Tithe is to redemption from the curse and to be used as a deposit on your destiny. Each time you tithe you are saying that I am making a down payment on my destiny.
This month, I also hear God say He’s redeeming the Generation X, who are Age 41-52 + 3 on both ends so 38 – 55. God is redeeming the Gen X because they have been X’d out, passed over, overlooked, to the point where the Gen X don’t even know who they are, and what’s their purpose. This month God has seen your tears and will be redeeming you and shift you into a position of Leadership.
10 is the NUMBER OF BIRTHING. A woman is pregnant for a total of 40 weeks, which is 10 months. Weeks 36-40 are the last part of the 3rd Trimester, so this month, it’s time to give birth to your dreams, aspirations, visions and focus on your PURPOSE. Prepare, it’s ACTION time, it’s time for your to truly, UNDERSTAND your Purpose, your path, what role you play and your level of influence. It’s TIME to maximize the life that GOD has given. One of the things you can do to prepare for this season, is to identify your sphere or spheres of influence that God has you in. It may have changed since you last looked at it.
It’s time to DETERMINE:
Where in the 9 Sphere’s (added 2) of Influence do you belong and which are your TOP 3:
ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT
Lastly many people have been asking me and I sense that many are also wondering, how do I know that it’s the VOICE of God Speaking to me and not just (little me voice) or the enemy.
One of the principles I have used to determine if it’s God really speaking to me, is found in Acts 10:10-16 NIV
 He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance.  He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners.  It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles and birds.  Then a voice told him, “Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.”  “Surely not, Lord!” Peter replied. “I have never eaten anything impure or unclean.”  The voice spoke to him a second time, “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.”  This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven.
You know it’s the VOICE OF GOD, if you’ve heard it 3 times. God’s divine number is three to break through and form one.
Here’s a 2nd example
1 Samuel 3:2-10 NIV (3 Call)
 One night Eli, whose eyes were becoming so weak that he could barely see, was lying down in his usual place.  The lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was lying down in the house of the Lord, where the ark of God was.  Then the Lord called Samuel. Samuel answered, “Here I am.”  And he ran to Eli and said, “Here I am; you called me.” But Eli said, “I did not call; go back and lie down.” So, he went and lay down.  Again the Lord called, “Samuel!” And Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, “Here I am; you called me.” “My son,” Eli said, “I did not call; go back and lie down.”  Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord: The word of the Lord had not yet been revealed to him.  A third time the Lord called, “Samuel!” And Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, “Here I am; you called me.” Then Eli realized that the Lord was calling the boy.  So Eli told Samuel, “Go and lie down, and if he calls you, say, ‘Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.’” So, Samuel went and lay down in his place.  The Lord came and stood there, calling as at the other times, “Samuel! Samuel! ” Then Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.”
HAVE FAITH, Trust God. Jesus is interceding for us.
Hebrews 10:10-16 NIV “And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.  Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.  But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God,  and since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool.  For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.  The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First he says:  “This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says the Lord. I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds.”

A WORD FOR YOU TODAY!
A word by Joel Yount:
Several years ago while walking at a park an Eagle had flown right over me carrying what looked like a dead snake. The one thing that amazed me was how low the Eagle was flying as it flew above me. It was as if God was highlighting this occurrence that I had never experienced before.
Before seeing the Eagle and the snake, I had been walking around the park praying and declaring scriptures for breakthrough regarding a situation. Leading up to this time, it seemed as if there was an escalated season of attack from the enemy as someone had attempted to shut the Spirit Fuel website down. However, God stepped in and the individual responsible for that attempt did not succeed. Praise God!
Pay Attention To Signs God Reveals To You
God had stepped in many ways in only he could do. The escalated attacks had ceased. The Lord revealed to me that the Eagle had represented His power and protection coming down and taking the enemy (the snake) out of his place.
The Lord instructed me to send this testimony out today because He wants to remind many of you that nothing is hard for Him. He will send signs in the natural that relate to what is going on in the supernatural.
The prayers and declarations of saying scripture out loud at the park had activated something in the Spirit realm I believe. One important action I had taken before this event was sowing several seeds into different ministries. This act stretched my faith. When I saw what God did and how he turned the enemy’s plans upside down I was amazed. God is turning the enemy’s plans upside down in your own life today! Do something in the natural to activate the supernatural in your life today.
Right now I encourage you to sow a seed of $50, $25, $100, or $500 into Spirit Fuel and name it “Breakthrough” as an act of faith. By sowing a seed today into Spirit Fuel, you will be helping to reach more people on the internet for the Kingdom of God. It takes a dedicated team and resources to maintain the Spirit Fuel platform.
