Immediacy Is Bringing Suddenlies! – A Word by Alane Haynes

There has been a clear and tangible shift with the onset of 5780; a defining movement into suddenlies. Recently many things have happened in my personal life that bear witness to this. Things that I have been believing for are now happening. Suddenly, healings; suddenly, creative miracles; suddenly, open doors; suddenly, divine appointments; suddenly, restoration of family members.  I heard the Lord say, “I have released a cleansing wind and those who have hungered for more of My presence and have obeyed the leading of My Spirit, are now hearing, seeing and sensing My presence as never before. The veil has been lifted and an immediacy released.” I looked up immediacy in Merriam Webster’s Dictionary. Holy Spirit highlighted a few of the less common definitions to me: 1) occurring, acting or accomplished without loss or interval of time;  2) existing without intervening space or substance; 3) being next in line or relation; 4a)  acting or being without the intervention of another object, cause, or agency; 4b) present to the mind independently of other states or factors. What I hear Holy Spirit saying is this: Those things that exist outside of time and space, from their pre-existence in God, that are next in line of God’s perfect timing, are coming forth, independently and with no other “cause” except…God says NOW is the time! NOW time, moving in NOW faith. Walking so closely with the Lord, by Holy Spirit leading, that what has been set in place beforehand, intersects time and space,...

God’s Call To Those In The Autumn Season Of Life – A Word by Wanda Alger

  For the generation over fifty, the Lord wants to remind you that your age is your biggest asset and your journey has increased in such value that all of heaven is now looking for you. Your weariness does not disqualify you from greatness. On the contrary, because of your faithful witness and consistent walk of faith, the Lord is now calling on you to help deliver a nation. When Abram was ninety-nine years old the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless (whole), that I may make my covenant between me and you and may multiply you greatly. (Genesis 17:1-2 ESV) Father Abraham did not even begin to fulfill his divine commission until he was nearly 100 years old. All that had gone before him had been preparation for the plans and purposes of God in the autumn season of his life. Because of the immense weight of responsibility in birthing and discipling a nation, God needed someone He could trust. He needed someone who had already proven himself to be faithful – regardless of the cost. He needed someone who would obey Him, not because it was personally beneficial, but because it was the only choice worth making. Abraham had passed the test. Moses didn’t begin his commission until he was 80 years old (Exodus 7:7). He thought his assignment had been years earlier, but he was not prepared. By the time he met God in the...

A Time to Collect the Spoils: Harvest Is Here! – A Word by Angie Stolba

After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying: “Give thanks to the Lord, for his love endures forever.” . . . So Jehoshaphat and his men went to carry off their plunder, and they found among them a great amount of equipment and clothing and also articles of value—more than they could take away. There was so much plunder that it took three days to collect it. | 2 Chronicles 20:21; 25. I have a word of encouragement this morning for those who are feeling battle weary and on the verge of losing hope. As a dear friend and intercessor shared with me a word she received from the Lord, declaring that now is the time of harvest, it resonated so strongly in my spirit. I continued to pray into this word, and I heard the Lord say to me, “This is a time to collect the spoils! Your waiting time, and all that the enemy has sought to bring against you, has accrued interest.” We are told in Scripture that when the thief is caught, he must repay seven fold. The enemy has overplayed his hand, and now the Lord is giving you above and beyond for your suffered losses. Truly you are entering into a season of gathering the plunder. Beloved, this is not a time to lay down in defeat, rather, it’s a time to...

“Get Ready For Reward” – A Word by Andrew Towe

While I was in prayer, I heard the Spirit of the Lord speak to me and say, “Get ready for REWARD! You will receive the spoils of the enemy.” Immediately, I began to research what that word actually meant. Dictionary.com defines “reward” as “a sum of money offered for the detection or capture of a criminal, the recovery of lost or stolen property, etc. Something given or received in return or recompense for service, merit, hardship, etc.” As I read the definition, the words “recovery” and “recompense” leapt off the pages to me. Again, I heard the Holy Spirit say, “This is a season where things that have been lost or stolen will now be recovered. There is recompense or reward coming to you. This is a set time for reward.” The Lord would have me to declare over you today, “Delay is broken over your life. The promises of God that have been overdue are now suddenly being released. This is a set time for many. God’s “reward” is being given to the seekers.” “But without faith it is impossible to please Him. For he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Heb. 11:6) We are given a better understanding of God’s reward through the life of the warrior, Caleb. He was sent to spy out the land that God had promised to the Israelites, with Joshua and 10 others. After 40 days, they returned...

Dusting In The Dark – A Word by Autumn Dawson

I was recently cleaning our home and dusting in my son’s room. I had the window open and the beautiful Texas sunshine was shining in through the window. In the sunlight, I began to notice there was dust everywhere! I could see dust in the air, on the lamp, on shelves and the baseboards. I was surprised at how dusty the room had become because I like to keep a very clean house! However, I wasn’t aware of the dust or the state of things until the sunlight shone on some of the areas I had overlooked. The Lord began to speak to me through this and began to show me that we aren’t always aware of what is really going on in our lives. Maybe there are little hidden areas in our lives that we haven’t been tending to. Maybe we have blinders on and can’t see the truth in certain situations in our lives. This is why we need the light and revelation of the Holy Spirit in our lives. This is why we need good mentors and Godly counsel in our lives to shine light on things that we may not be able to see in ourselves. The Lord spoke to me and said, “When you go at life alone, it’s like dusting in the dark.” Just like in my son’s room, if I hadn’t opened up the blinds to let the light in, I wouldn’t have seen all of the little areas that looked clean but...

Wise As Serpents ~ Harmless As Doves – A Word by Elaine Tavolacci

We are entering a season like no other. We have been experiencing revival meetings across the country and around the world and the presence of God will continue to escalate in the days ahead. There will be ministries of miracles, signs and wonders. There will be apostles and prophets arising but there will also be false prophets so it is imperative that we are able to discern the difference. There are nine spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in 1 Corinthians chapter 12. One of the gifts is the “discerning of spirits”. When I looked this scripture up in the Strong’s concordance I found something interesting. The word “spirits” (pneuma) refers to the Holy Spirit, the human spirit and demonic spirts.) (Strong’s G4151) This gift gives us discernment into all realms of the natural and the supernatural. As I was writing this the Lord reminded me of an old story about a woman that rescued a half frozen snake from the snow. The snake pleaded with the woman "Take me in, oh tender woman, "Take me in, for heaven's sake." The woman took the snake into her home, warmed him in a blanket and placed him by the fireplace as she fed him milk and honey. After the snake thawed out and was revived the woman said; I saved you from freezing to death. She kissed him on the head and stroked his beautiful skin. The snake suddenly turned on her and gave her a vicious bite. The woman...

Your Dream Will be Birthed by Your Decree – A Word by Lori Suiter

“The journey has created the character”…I heard this in my quiet time this morning. Many have felt they are at the place of birthing a dream or a promise but they doubt their own ability to birth it due to the anticipation of the pain of the final push. The insecurity and fear is hindering the promise. Those things must be conquered with the word of God!! Its the only way through! What does God say about what you are capable of accomplishing? I’m here to remind you today that You CAN do ALL things THROUGH CHRIST who STRENGTHENS you! Greater is He that is IN you than he that is in the world! He is NOT watching you in labor from the outside, but He is the very force that will compel and propel it to go forth from the inside! He is no longer seen by you as a only a faithful friend who sits consistently by your side for comfort but He has become an active force within you! That is what this season was all about. Christ in you, the hope of glory being formed inside of you! The months of feasting on the Word and staying in His presence has utterly convinced you of His mind blowing power and love at work FOR you, IN you, and THROUGH you! Partner with Him and birth the dream, birth the breakthrough…through you declaring the Word of God! You will declare a thing and it WILL BE established...

Keys for Tapping into Your Promises – A Word by Christy Johnston

Are you still in transition? Or have you been seeing 11:11 or 12:12 all the time? Numbers are prophetic in nature because in Hebrew they carry significant meaning, and I wanted to give you some key scriptures and promises that are prophesying into your life right now if either of these two numbers are being highlighted to you or if you are finding yourself in transition. Take Possession of the Land. 11:11 often signifies transition. Nate and I, and many other prophetic voices have been saying it all year, that it has been a year of transition. Many are standing at the crossroads of the eleventh hour, waiting for supernatural intervention. For some, you may have already crossed over into your promise, for others, you may still find yourselves in the hallways of transition. I want to encourage you, that as we crossed into the Hebraic new year of 5780, I personally felt a shift in the heavenly realm. I believe there is significant momentum about to take place for many who have been in the ‘waiting,’ your doors are about to open. I also want to remind you of a word I wrote a week ago, about the keys in the door. You can read it here: https://nateandchristy.co/the-door-is-ready-to-open/ Deut 11:11 But the land you are crossing the Jordan to take possession of is a land of mountains and valleys that drinks rain from heaven. Faith Taps into the Promise It does not matter how impossible your situation may look...

4 Blocks That Can Cloud Your Vision – A Word by Doug Addison

Do you want to do big things for God? Usually, the first step in our journey with the Lord is to walk through a time of deep, deep healing.  This time of year is called the Days of Awe. It’s a moment of hearing God more clearly for your destiny, especially for the coming year. During this season, God will look at your heavenly books. All the days of your life were written in God’s book before even one of them took place. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139:16 NIV We’ve been given a choice to do the things God has written for us. But we pick up mental blocks over the course of our lives that keep us from entering into the fullness of God’s destiny for us.  Healing from rejection “Whoever listens to you listens to me; whoever rejects you rejects me; but whoever rejects me rejects him who sent me.” Luke 10:16 NIV We can expect some degree of rejection for carrying the message of Jesus.  Throughout the history of revival, many past revivalists that we hold in high esteem actually suffered a great deal of rejection from the established Church of their day. This is so common that even Jesus was rejected by most people, especially religious leaders and even people in His hometown. The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This...
