The Winds of Change-Not by Might, Nor By Power, But By His Spirit
Updated: Sep 2
Lately, I’ve had an increase in prophetic dreams. Prophetic dreams pertain to things that are coming- a present future focus from God.
Prophecy is not inevitable, we must partner with God by faith. So don’t give up if you haven’t seen what you’ve been expecting.
In DUE TIME YOU WILL REAP, IF YOU DONT GIVE UP!
This is a time where I believe God is speaking to us through dreams.
More dreams are from God than are not, so please don’t discount your dreams. Dreams are God’s picture language to us that are parabolic, metaphorical and symbolic- so it takes time to unpack them.
In this particular dream I had in January 2017, I saw a storm brewing. There were incredible WINDS and a SOUND that caught my attention and I can still see the picture in my minds eye and feel what the sound produced.
I did not see the rain but I knew it was imminent. The dream lasted just a few moments, but as I took time to process it with the lord I sensed he was showing me what was coming.
In my dream I sensed this Sound and Wind to be a wave of Holy Spirit that is coming-as the BREATH of God and the Spirit of Truth-His voice. (THE GLORY OF GOD) in the midst of a storm.
The storm was brewing but God already had the Holy Spirit positioned to move in by his grace.
The storms that are brewing will come suddenly in the earth for many people, taking many forms in their lives, but God is allowing these storms to show you who is over the storms-who is really in charge of the winds and seas. Much will be shaken, but the eternal things will be what remains.
“Even then, his voice shook the earth; but now, he has made this promise: “One more time I will shake not only the earth, but heaven too!” And this phrase, “one more time,” makes clear that the things shaken are removed, since they are created things, so that the things not shaken may remain. Therefore, since we have received an unshakeable Kingdom, let us have grace, through which we may offer service that will please God, with reverence and fear. For indeed, “Our God is a consuming fire!”” Messianic Jews (Heb) 12:26-29 CJB
WHERE the enemy is TRYING TO SET YOU BACK in this storm- GOD IS GOING TO SET YOU UP!
Set you up for breakthroughs in the areas you’ve been contending for.
He wants you to know WHO AND WHOSE YOU ARE.
The enemy has been attacking your identity and attempting to thwart your purpose with distractions so that you will not rise up in the authority and power you possess by Holy Spirit.
A greater realization of GREATER IS HE WHO IS IN YOU- THAN HE WHO IS IN THE WORLD is coming.
Divine breakthroughs of mass proportions are coming through these storms. It will be hard to see at first because of all the noise and wind that the storm is bringing but as you fix your eyes on Jesus you will begin to see that God is doing something in the storm that will affect so many other people, not just you.
God is so very gracious and his desire is that everyone would be saved, understand the truth about His Son and know his goodness.
So this is the question. Can God trust you in the storm? Will you trust his character when you don’t understand his ways?
You may already be in the middle of this storm but you can be confident in this-what the enemy has meant for your harm God is going to use for your good.
He will come to you. He is not slack in his coming. He never sleeps nor slumbers, and while you wait for him to act he is perfecting you in the storm. He is developing you for his purpose in your life.
“Suddenly, the glory of the God of Israel appeared from the east. The sound of his coming was like the roar of rushing waters, and the whole landscape shone with his glory.” Ezekiel 43:2 NLT
I began to process this dream and I believe the Lord began to put some other things that he’s been showing me together with this dream so that I would have a clearer picture. As I asked the Lord for a confirmation, I believe the Lord highlighted to me this passage of scripture.
“…..’Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts.” Zechariah 4:6 NASB
I believe the Lord is coming in the storm to restore our senses:
sight– visions and dreams
hearing-sound that will awaken us to his voice & his power
touch-we will experience his presence
smell-that will revive us- his breath-have you ever tried to smell without taking a breath?
oh taste and see that the Lord is good.
He’s coming to awaken our senses to who he is in us and in others.
This powerful work that the Holy Spirit is about to do in the earth will not be carried by human effort or strength, but by HIS SPIRIT in us and others that he is connecting us to this season.
Every persons gifts and anointing will supply what is necessary for victory and breakthrough. You are not in this alone. God is sending you help in your assignment.
Holy Spirit’s power and strength will be recognized in vessels that have been refined in this last season.
Are you prepared for the storm?
The Prepared Ones of God will carry the weight of his glory as they have oil in their lamps. It’s the oil and fire that they carry in them, the Holy Spirit, that will do the work.
No man will receive praise for what will be done, for it will be a sovereign work of God as you weather the storm.
He will be using many people in a team effort in your life, so pay attention to who God may be highlighting to you. Don’t discount anyone, because he will be using the most unlikely people and their gifts to speak to you in wisdom counsel and instruction.
Prayer brings great strength. In the places where the storm was sent to weaken people, they will know that strength that comes as they yield to his presence and Spirit in prayer.
A realization of: “Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 NLT
Could it be the SOUND of great grace that’s coming?
“’What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!” Zechariah 4:7 NASB
I believe we will see:
New kingdom relationships
A huge harvest of souls in a day
Supernatural joy and peace in people’s lives
New gifts experienced
New authority in prayer
People’s true identity & purpose realized
Conversions & new births (Nicodemus moments)
Angelic visitations & God encounters at night
Gods favor to build and do kingdom exploits
Renewed strength, health & vitality
New vision, knowledge & wisdom from God
The SUDDENLIES OF GOD
A Prevailing Wind
Expect to see more windy weather this year. ITS YOUR SIGN!
This wind will be a Prevailing wind that will carry the PLANS AND PURPOSES OF GOD to each person.
pre·vail·ing wind noun plural noun: prevailing winds a wind from the direction that is predominant at a particular place or season.
This wind prevails from above!
It will TRUMP all other winds that come against you.
Prevailing winds SHIFT COURSES! For many of you, this new wind coming will bring great change.
Change in location, even if it’s brief periods of times. God may need you somewhere very specific and send you on assignment.
Change in relationships. There is a time, season and purpose for relationships. Not everyone is meant to go the distance. God will be sending new people to you, so you may need to make adjustments with who you spend time with.
This wind will bring change in authority, as the purposes of God takes precedence in the earth. We’ve already seen the change of authority in American government. It will flow down to every member of society. That’s why you see all the turmoil and shaking in America. Ruling authorities are getting de-throned.
Jesus still commands the seas and the winds still obey his voice!
As in the book of Daniel, The Most High God, is involved in the affairs of men.
This wind of the Spirit will also alter current structures in this world. The structures of man will be blown down by this PREVAILING WIND of God, giving way to Kingdom structures.
This wind will shift the course of people groups and nations – for some IN A DAY, I sensed the Lord say. It will usher the arrival of many things, from OUT OF THE BLUE!
“Out of the blue” will be a term you will here over and over this year as these winds will blow in the SUDDENLIES OF GOD.
The fire of God that will acompany this wind will burn up and completely consume the lies, man made traditions and counterfeit things that have been planted in people’s lives which have kept them from being completely whole and free. Freedom fire!
Jesus said this:
“……And so you cancel the word of God in order to hand down your own tradition. And this is only one example among many others.” Mark 7:13 NLT
This wind of God as the SPIRIT OF TRUTH will blow away & DISPLACE wrong teachings, religious mindsets and paradigms that have been adopted as truths. NOT THE TRUTH – but man taught truths.
These ways of thinking have held a form of godliness but they did not allow God’s power to bring real change and transformation to peoples lives.
It’s a shift from man to God- from law to love! A reviving of men’s hearts towards the eternal purposes and mind of God.
The Pneuma of God
It’s the pneuma of God himself, invading planet earth. In the Greek, pneuma means- that which is breathed or blown!
This breath of God (Holy Spirit) will revive the downcast and those who have lost their way. It will stop many dead in their tracks as they receive this shot of vitality from God himself! It will give them new strength, purpose, vision and reason for living and new wind in their sails as God charts new courses of destiny for their lives!
The many who encounter this wind will slow down and really understand what it means to love, rest and trust in God. Hurry and striving will be a thing of the past for them as they ENTER HIS REST.
“Then said He to me, Prophesy to the breath and spirit, son of man, and say to the breath and spirit, Thus says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath and spirit, and breathe upon these slain that they may live. So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath and spirit came into [the bones], and they lived and stood up upon their feet, an exceedingly great host. [Rev. 11:11.]” Ezekiel 37:9-10 AMPC
A GREAT ARMY will arise, but it won’t look like you think!
It may look the opposite in the beginning, for God’s ways are not our ways. As your senses become awakened and heightened, make sure you practice those senses by asking God questions and waiting for his response.
This will take time, don’t rush the process, remember God is not in a hurry, he’s about the journey, not just the final destination.
“Solid food is for those who are mature, who through training have the skill to recognize the difference between right and wrong.” Hebrews 5:14 NLT
This wind will carry the weighty things of God as he releases the new assignments to those in this army. The greater the assignment, the greater the wind! As heavy as these assignments will be, the breath and strength of God will enable you to do with ease what would have been impossible before.
New forerunners and leaders will arise as a result of encountering this wind, as God rearranges and positions new leadership.
Be ready and expect God to use the most unlikely people. Don’t discount them or you may miss out on who he wants to use in your life to bless you.
You will begin to BREATHE WITH EASE as this wind blows upon you, filling your lungs with air! Don’t forget that the winds may begin as adverse but it will turn for you- at your back- as you continue to MOVE FORWARD in the storm.
SLOW DOWN AND LOOK AGAIN-God is doing something new in the earth!
It’s a NOT BY MIGHT, NOR BY POWER, BUT BY MY SPIRIT (MY PNEUMA) time says the Lord!
