As I awoke this morning, I felt a major shift in the Spirit. I have been sensing the moving and shifting of things since September of last year and they have been continually speeding up at a rapid pace this entire month of January.
As I was asking the Lord once again about all I have been sensing, He led me to 2 Chronicles 20:20. The moment I read this verse and the ones following, I heard Him loudly declare, “This is My Word for TODAY and the rest of this month!”
There were a few things the Lord highlighted to me that I feel led to share as bullet-points:
– The word “Takoa” means “trumpet; that is confirmed”.
– The number “Twenty” is one of expectancy, waiting, accountability and responsibility. Many of you have been a resident of this very thing for quite some time, but you are now stepping into the fullness of that!
– The number “Ten” shows a completion of order, a completion of a cycle; fullness.
– The number “Eleven” (the number of days left in January) speaks of awakening and transition. Get ready to experience (if you haven’t already been) an increase in your dreams, being awoken in the night, a transitioning and increase in your prayer language, your intercession moving into new spiritual territories. Some of you will be physically moving homes or into new locations very rapidly.
“Early in the morning they left for the Desert of Tekoa. As they set out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Listen to me, Judah and people of Jerusalem! Have faith in the Lord your God and you will be upheld; have faith in his prophets and you will be successful.” 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.”
As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated. The men of Ammon and Moab rose up against the men from Mount Seir to destroy and annihilate them. After they finished slaughtering the men from Seir, they helped to destroy one another.
When the men of Judah came to the place that overlooks the desert and looked toward the vast army, they saw only dead bodies lying on the ground; no one had escaped. 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. On the fourth day they assembled in the Valley of Beracah, where they praised the Lord. This is why it is called the Valley of Beracah to this day.
Then, led by Jehoshaphat, all the men of Judah and Jerusalem returned joyfully to Jerusalem, for the Lord had given them cause to rejoice over their enemies. They entered Jerusalem and went to the temple of the Lord with harps and lutes and trumpets.
The fear of God came upon all the kingdoms of the countries when they heard how the Lord had fought against the enemies of Israel. And the kingdom of Jehoshaphat was at peace, for his God had given him rest on every side.” 2 Chronicles 20:20-30 (NIV)
The Lord says, “My children, your mouth, the voice I gave you, is the trumpet that gives way for you and Me to take out the enemy before you even arrive on the scene! Your voice is the weapon needed most right now and it is the one, in My Name, that brings victory! The trumpets blown after the victory are the ones of celebration of praise! Use your mouth before you use an instrument and you will begin to see the very things manifest that I have shown you! You will be victorious, you will be carrying off more plunder than you can carry, you will be walking forward, leaping with Joy and filled with a deeper understanding of My love for you! I Am pouring out a fresh oil on you and all the gifts I have set within you for this very moment! You will taste the most pure honey that your lips have ever tasted. All that I set on your lips to speak from this point in time, in this very moment will pour forth sweet like My honey and dripping with My oil. This will be a continual flow from Heaven; not stopping and starting like the days of the past. This is a NEW move, this is a NEW era and you will be walking forward in a NEW way; weighed down with the wealth and the payback from the enemy for years of theft and torment. The payback in here and all the sweat and tears from the past years are over! You will see and all who have been watching will see this very thing!”
As I was writing these words from the Lord, I sensed some of you struggling to grasp a hold of this goodness; as if you were saying, “It’s too good to be true. This is just another fluffy, feel-good word that will never become my reality.” If that is you, the Lord is saying to you, “I want you to know how purposed you are in this very moment; you are not forgotten, you are not being left behind. I want you to speak the words of your heart to Me. I know you are afraid to say them, but you won’t hurt My feelings. I already know what they are, but I’m asking you to come into that secret, intimate place with Me. Speak these things to Me and I will reply; You will hear My heartbeat for you. There’s no need for you to be afraid. If you come with your fists clenched, how could I place something in your hands? I’m asking you to open up your hands, let Me bring healing and let Me place all I desire for you into them. Your eyes WILL see My goodness in the land of the living and that I Am, truly, giving you rest on ALL sides!”
