Discerning Times and Seasons – A Word by Nathan Shaw

God’s prophetic time clock is ticking. He is aligning the nations for His, and their, purposes. When we prophesy over individuals, churches, cities or nations, it is important to discern the season each is in. In fact, releasing accurate prophetic information, without correctly discerning the season, can cause much harm. It is easy to assume that other people, churches etc. are in the same season that we are in. Succumbing to this mistake can result in giving a wrong word, or even a right word, but with a wrong emphasis. Natural Seasons and their Unique Characteristics Cooperating with natural seasons was central to the life of ancient Israel. Natural seasons enable the growth of natural harvests. Spiritual seasons, on the other hand, enable growth and maturity in individuals, churches and nations. There are four natural seasons, each with its unique characteristics: During spring, new things spring up. During summer, harvest...

Elevated Sons, Forsaken Fathers – A Word by Ryan Johnson

Every generation goes through their version of tug-of-war within who has the right answers, and who is wrong. There has always been this mindset within an older generation and within a younger generation. The battle is nothing new as it has occurred throughout the years. However, I do write this as I recognize that in the Body of Christ we are dangerously embarking on alienating a very important aspect from one generation in favor of another. Today, we have a multitude of young voices who are emerging to the forefront and sharing a lot of advice, wisdom, and ideas. We see the sudden emergence thanks to the platform of social media. Personally, I have gained a lot in my life and ministry from the easy access of social media. I love the fact that we can follow and connect with others throughout the world. I love the fact that we...

Prophetic Word – Windows of Opportunity Are Opening – A Word by Dr. Candice Smithyman

I hear the Lord saying, “This is a time of acceleration. Windows of opportunity are opening. Things are moving fast in the heavenly realms. New grain, new wine and new oil is coming from heaven.” All of these things are beginning to come to pass during the Days of Awe because they fulfill the requirement found in Joel 2:15: “Blow the trumpet in Zion, declare a holy fast, call a sacred assembly.” We blew the trumpet and declared a holy fast. And we are returning to God in repentance and humility. So God is preparing to answer according to His promise in verse 19. God is revealing our hearts and uncovering things that need to be changed. We need to be still and listen for His voice, come into agreement with Him and obey direction. Joel 2:18 show us that God was jealous and has pity on His people. That...

Absalom: A church destroying spirit | 8 Signs you are under its influence – A word by John Burton

Absalom is a church destroying spirit that is fueled by human wisdom, complaint and gossip. I’ve written and taught on the Absalom spirit quite a bit, including in a provocative article I wrote yesterday. I’d strongly encourage you to read it here.  Interestingly, I received two emails today that hit on the topics in that article yesterday. One was from David Wilkerson on “Troubler of Israel” and the other was from Lance Wallnau on the Absalom spirit. I will include that article below. I share some key revelation on that spirit in my book Covens in the Church, and I’d encourage you to pick it up. ABSALOM The Absalom strategy of the enemy is brilliant. This spirit is fueled by human wisdom, complaint, gossip and a desire to prove what is right and to use that information to force change in a church. The complaints are often accurate, yet they...

Praying Hyde—The Apostle of Prayer—The Man Who Never Sleeps – A Word by Steve Porter

This is the story of a humble man—the son of a devout Presbyterian pastor from Illinois, by the name of John Nelson Hyde. It all began when John’s older brother, Edmund, heard his father fervently pray that God would send workers into the harvest. To that end, Edmund enrolled in the seminary, planning to be one of those harvesters. But it wasn’t long before he became ill, and his dream was cut short by his death. It was then that his brother, John, then caught the vision and studied to go to the mission field in Punjab, India. During that time, there were nearly a million unbelievers in an area served by only five missionaries. His efforts required incredible patience because it was a painstakingly slow transition. After his first year on the field, he penned the following letter to his seminary. Yesterday, eight low-caste persons were baptized at one...

The Church Needs An Eye Exam Before We Can See 2020 – A Word by Wanda Alger

The Church of America is suffering from double vision. There are two different interpretations of reality being promoted today causing confusion, division, and an inability to move forward. Some are perceiving current issues in one way and others are challenging those perceptions with a different version of what is true and relevant. Until our corporate vision and ability to perceive by the Spirit is corrected and brought into alignment with heaven, we will have no clarity of purpose or unified strategy to confront the spiritual attacks coming against the Church and the nation. The liberal media is doing all it can to present their version of reality. Though “fake news” is now accepted as common place, it still has a hold on the hearts and minds of many. Even some sincere Christians are buying into the progressive disdain for the president and his administration’s agenda. Yet, the very thing that...

When Jesus Is Enough – A Word by Dawn Hill

When the thrill of the experience has waxed cold and the fog lifts and the glow of the ambient light has dimmed in the presence of offending fluorescence, there is a questioning of the longevity of this sacred romance called Christianity. As a Christian, I realize that encounter and experience once took precedence in my life. It was the thrill of God seeming to chase me and give me a word, to have the “man or woman of God” call me out and declare greatness and mighty exploits. Hot tears and those euphoric goosebumps were my litmus test that He had touched me through the years. Is this how many of us have operated with God? It was not until this year that I came to grips with the truth. I was a starving sheep, feasting on encounter and messages with fillers and lacking true sustenance while snacking on His...

I Am Releasing Strength In Your Inner Man! – A Word by Amanda Shiflett

I heard the Lord say ~ "Many of you, My warriors and My prophets, have been wearied by the fight you have been through in this last season. You feel somewhat discouraged and weak from the constant standing and warring against the onslaught of the enemy. Yes, his attacks have been great, but I am sending My Spirit even now, to give you strength in Your inner man...to blow His breath within you again, and strengthen you with great might in your spirit man! You are needing that strength to enable you to step up and do what is needed, to accomplish that which I have set for you to do in this new season. Come away with Me over the next few weeks...come tabernacle with me, and receive the extra strength that is so needed for your weary soul. As you spend this extra time with me, I will...

In This New Era, God Is Preparing His Eagles to Bring Deliverance – A Word by Wayland Henderson

We are in a kairos or opportune moment in history where the Holy Spirit is inviting us to prepare unlike we have in the past as we cross over into a new era. Through recent visions and dreams the Spirit of the Lord began to highlight some key point of preparation. The Brooding of His Glory While in prayer for our monthly Barn Fire Gatherings for our kingdom center, I had a vision of the glory cloud hovering and brooding over the barn. As the glory cloud was brooding, the Holy Spirit began to speak scriptures to me starting with Genesis 1:1-2 where the Spirit of God brooded over the waters as an eagle broods over the nest exciting them to leave. This is why Scripture declares that God brought them out of Egypt on eagle’s wings (Exodus 19:5; Deuteronomy 32:11). The four living creatures that were surrounding God’s throne...

New Word: The Coming Decade of The Voice of The Lord – A Word by Faith Marie Baczko

On September 30th we will be entering the Jewish New Year of 5780. In Hebrew the number eighty is represented by the letter pey that means the mouth. During worship at a recent conference I attended in Raleigh on prophets and the prophetic, I began to receive a download from the Lord as to this coming decade marked by pey and beginning 2020 on the Gregorian calendar. Having passed through the decade of ayin, represented by the eye, and seeing, a season of having learned to see and align our spiritual eyes to what God is revealing—we are now entering the time of 20/20 vision, of being perfected in vision in order to speak, decree, and prophecy with a higher level of accuracy and specificity. Prophets and the prophetic will move to the forefront as God moves to release His Will on planet Earth. On Rosh Hashanah we will enter...
