"It Is Time for a Shift of Mass Proportions"
God has a way of getting our attention where we have no other choice but to get on our knees and call on his name.
Joel 2:12-14 That is why the Lord says “Turn to me now, while there is time.
Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief,
but tear your hearts instead." Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate,
slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish. Who knows? Perhaps he will give you a reprieve, sending you a blessing instead of this curse. Perhaps you will be able to offer grain and wine to the Lord your God as before."
Did a world-wide pandemic NEED to occur for us to realize our need of Him? No it didn't, but unfortunately that's exactly what we are dealing with. And this isn't all that is coming dear ones. Few things shifts us like a crisis, whether it is health, famine or natural disasters. That's just the way it is, so we need to stop fooling ourselves and being religious. And no this not God's way of doing things- but he does know what it takes to awaken mankind and shift their hearts back to his Son Jesus.
Looking to Jesus
Hebrews 12:1-2 "Therefore then, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us,
Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]."
Repentance gets our hearts in position and shifted under his divine authority like nothing else does. We need to humble ourselves right now people of God. Praying shifting prayers like:
"Create in me a clean heart Oh God and renew a right spirit within me...." or all of Psalm 51 for that matter, is a great place to start.
Repentance in prayer shifts us into further aligning with his heart, truth and principles. The depth of our revival will be dependent upon the depth of acknowledgement of wrong doing and repentance is now the key--how low can we go in repentance and humility?
1 John 1:8-9 CJB "If we claim not to have sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we acknowledge our sins, then, since he is trustworthy and just, he will forgive them and purify us from all wrongdoing."
We cannot fix ourselves. Jesus Christ is to be our Lord and Savior and he will do the fixing and purifying as we yield our hearts and lives to him. We need only to repent, do what his Word commands us and trust in him.
The height of your repentance will determine the height to which you will be healed and soar in the days ahead.
2 Chronicles 7:13-14 CJB "If I shut up the sky, so that there is no rain; or if I order locusts to devour the land; or if I send an epidemic of sickness among my people; then, if my people, who bear my name, will humble themselves, pray, seek my face and turn from their evil ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land."
The time is now-don't put it off.
It's Time for World-Wide Harvest and Reset
One of the first things a crisis will do is uncover the need for change. As the corona-virus outbreak continues to spread, we will see more and more restrictions being imposed. Protocols are being put into place to provide safeguards for all people. Why? It certainly isn't because it is so deadly, as the Swine flu was much worse. This is a picture of the divine reset that is taking place in the earth. As a society we have lived our lives out of control, for far too long-not properly governing ourselves or discerning what is going on in the world around us. Many, not all, live oblivious to the things that are out of order in their lives or in the earth. As Americans, we can be very selfish and self-focused and God is coming for that. Flesh cannot live in his presence, so let me encourage you to allow him to deal with all idolatry, and fleshly sin issues.
Galatians 5:19-21 "Now the doings (practices) of the flesh are clear (obvious): they are immorality, impurity, indecency, Idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger (ill temper), selfishness, divisions (dissensions), party spirit (factions, sects with peculiar opinions, heresies), Envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. I warn you beforehand, just as I did previously, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Things are Changing and Will Never Be the Same
Earlier in the year I released a prophetic word from the Lord about the standards of righteousness that God was ordering in the earth-you can read it below this word. New standards are here.
We can see how this global reset is currently taking place in all areas of society. We must get activated to cooperate with the Lord and his standards as these change continue taking place. This reset is happening in families, governments, the private business sectors, banking and financial markets, media, education, religion, entertainment and personally in our lives.
Listen folks, God ain't playing. This is something he said to me in December 2019. We are living in very serious times, unprecedented times, right now. The bible calls it perilous times.
2 Timothy 3:1-3 KJV 'This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."
We certainly don't want others shifting away from us, nor God, for our lack of obedience and repentance, so don't delay, turn back to God beloved. God is moving as sovereign in the earth, and we must obey him his word,and listen to his prophets.
2 Chronicles 20:20 NLT “Listen to me, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be able to stand firm. Believe in his prophets, and you will succeed.”
Not All Fear is Bad
Right now we are dealing with a global pandemic that for many has brought on fear, anxiety and panic; and yes fear that brings on torment or bondage needs casting out-but let's remember that not all fear is bad.
Matthew 10:26-28 “But don’t be afraid of those who threaten you. For the time is coming when everything that is covered will be revealed, and all that is secret will be made known to all. What I tell you now in the darkness, shout abroad when daybreak comes. What I whisper in your ear, shout from the housetops for all to hear!“Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell."
I Am Sounding the Alarm-Get Prepared
God is calling for his intercessors and prophets to arise and pray like never before, for regional and global revival.
Ezekiel 33:1-9 NLT "Once again a message came to me from the Lord: “Son of man, give your people this message: ‘When I bring an army against a country, the people of that land choose one of their own to be a watchman. When the watchman sees the enemy coming, he sounds the alarm to warn the people. Then if those who hear the alarm refuse to take action, it is their own fault if they die. They heard the alarm but ignored it, so the responsibility is theirs. If they had listened to the warning, they could have saved their lives. But if the watchman sees the enemy coming and doesn’t sound the alarm to warn the people, he is responsible for their captivity. They will die in their sins, but I will hold the watchman responsible for their deaths.’“Now, son of man, I am making you a watchman for the people of Israel. Therefore, listen to what I say and warn them for me. If I announce that some wicked people are sure to die and you fail to tell them to change their ways, then they will die in their sins, and I will hold you responsible for their deaths. But if you warn them to repent and they don’t repent, they will die in their sins, but you will have saved yourself.
Prophets and intercessors, it is time to take your place on the walls-pray and warn the people.
As you arise and pray- change will occur. As you plow in prayer- answers will arrive swiftly-as you decree a thing, it will be established- as you prophesy the hammer of the Lord will knock down long standing man-made kingdoms. God is moving in by his Spirit and having his way. The world will experience not only health crisis, but financial ones and natural disasters in the days ahead.
BUT GOD will work it together for the good of those who love him and are called according to his great purpose. Romans 8:28
Rise Up People of God, The Time Is Now
Rise up prophets, and let your mouths be like trumpets, blasting loudly the Word of the Lord. Let the Word of the Lord come through you, dividing and cutting asunder soul and spirit. Rise up intercessors and birth forth the eternal purposes and plans of God. Rise up evangelists and go forth in deliverance, healing and with messages of salvation and hope returning the outcast to their families. Rise up mom and dad and take back your households, governing your family for the glory of God. Rise up you great entrepreneurs and flourish in times of famine, as it is time to set up the economies of God in the earth. Rise up Apostles and build says the Lord, build centers of higher learning, equipping people for a brighter tomorrow. Rise up and build new mental health hospitals with a kingdom mandate for healing and deliverance. Rise up pastors and feed the sheep, teach the sheep, and shepherd the sheep. Rise up, rise up, rise up, whoever you are and get in place.
Joel 2:28-31 AMPC "And afterward I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.
Even upon the menservants and upon the maidservants in those days will I pour out My Spirit. And I will show signs and wonders in the heavens, and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke.
The sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes."
"I will pour out my Spirit upon all people."
Recently while I was in prayer, the Lord began highlighting the earth to me. I kept sensing his involvement, re-ordering and re-structuring throughout the whole earth. I then remembered a vision the Lord gave me a few years back where I saw a neighborhood with fires on rooftops. These fires weren't burning the houses in the way you would think. I knew in the vision that these were house churches where God had ignited his power, passion and presence there. I knew a time was coming where people would be meeting in homes and his glory and presence would be there. Whole families being restored to Jesus, where a re-kindling was occurring. Houses of his presence where he made his abode there.
God's ways and customs are not our ways and customs, but they can be, as we offer ourselves as living sacrifices and lay down on the altar daily, where we burn for him. Living sacrifices is what he wants. This scripture has been burning in me for the last 6 months at least. We must offer ourselves up to God as living sacrifices in this time as he resets us and brings us back into divine order.
Romans 12:1-2 NLT "And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect."
A Fire That Cannot be Contained
God's presence can't be contained in any structure made by man. And when wants to restore humanity and reform us- he will do it with his fiery presence. Fire is not always a bad thing. When the fire of God comes, it is an all consuming fire that will burn up anything not like him. It is a fire that destroys the things standing in the way of you experiencing true intimacy, presence and power. His fire produces the holiness and righteousness of God in your life, as Jesus takes his place on the throne of your heart. Remember friends that God is holy and we are commanded to be holy people just like him.
Being isolated and removed out of the ordinary, mundane and familiar is a great opportunity for a personal or family reset. Look folks, like it or not, this is happening, and things will never go back to the way they were before. The Lord showed me in mid January that a shift had occurred and the NEW had come. I didn't fully understand all of what that meant until right now. You better get on board and agree with what God is doing now or you may miss your opportunity to flourish. SHIFT RIGHT NOW!!
God wants to take his people into a land of plenty, even in times where others are experiencing a famine. Not only to sustain you but to help others. What the enemy meant for your harm God will use to bless you and preserve others. We will be positioned to bless and help people and show them Jesus.The scripture is full of famines and we're not exempt from such things in our world today.
It is time to slow down says the Lord and allow my spirit to re-ignite some old passions and desires.
Not everything old is bad-sometimes when God comes to do something new in us he will RE-NEW something he started or did in us long ago.
We must adjust our lens and ask God for eyes to see what he is doing world wide right now. We must humble ourselves and pray for God to forgive us and heal us. God is orchestrating many things all at once, in the world and in your life; and I exhort you to stop and pay attention. Spend time quietly in his presence and wait for him to speak. Ask God for wisdom and for strategies. I offer a few in this article.
Allow this time to slow you down to the speed of now. I believe God is shifting us into a higher place of living inside of him where we live from his eternal perspective, wisdom and knowledge so we know how to navigate in times of famine and storms and not from a worldly mindset.
This will prepare us for a worldwide global harvest. Things are going to start heating up so fast our heads are going to swim; but we must not fear or panic when we see things shifting or changing because God is in control. Economies will shift, businesses will shift, banking systems will shift, governments will shift, as the Lord of Hosts restructures the kingdoms of this world. Territories are about to shift and revival is about to break out all around the globe.
Psalm 24:1 "The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness of it, the world and they who dwell in it."
Rev. 11:15 "The kingdom of the world has become the Kingdom of our Lord and his Messiah, and he will rule forever and ever!”
Places and kingdoms that some people thought would never shift will see tremendous change as the kingdom of God is established as he comes in to rule. It's time for revival reformation to occur and it will-globally- as a divine ordering and reset is taking place.
SWIFT CHANGE WILL OCCUR IN SOME PLACES
God is about to come and remove some out of positions of power, influence and wealth. The final verdict and judgment has begun in some of these cases. Harvey Winstein being one of them. The greater the influence, the greater the exposing and judgment. You know God is judge right? Then why do you believe he will not judge people for their sin and refusal to repent? God is judging and bringing a final verdict right now. We have only known times of grace but I'm here to tell you that we are not in that season.
He is exposing and judging things according to his time, plans and purposes. You will see an exposing taking place in high ranking government positions, and all the way down to every sphere of influence in society with those who have refused the chastening of the Lord, and have not repented or turned from their evil ways. Righteousness matters to God and for some who have consistently refused the Lord's correction, their time is up, and the time is now. It will start in the house of the Lord.
Many are being ousted the Lord says. Some have walked the tight rope for far too long and their time is up. There will be a great fall because of the sin of pride. This will cause an uprising to occur, but you must not lose faith in me, says the Lord-return to me with all your heart when you see these things happen.
Return to me in stillness, prayer and in quietness and trust.
Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus and remove them off the fallen. You will be surprised at who goes says the Lord, but you must remain positioned and on your post as I remove the kings and kingdoms of idolatry and every man-made thing.
There is no partiality with God and I see God coming for all areas of injustice where great harm has occurred- especially racism and nepotism. God is putting who he wants into place for global impact and harvest and the time is now. Just when you thought God forgot about you, and you were overlooked- just wait, the doors are about to open for you.
Galatians 6:7 "God will not be mocked, whatever a man sows, he will reap."
Romans 2:11 CJB "For God does not show favoritism." AMPC "For God shows no partiality ,[undue favor or unfairness; with Him one man is not different from another]"
HIS SHIFTING POWER IS UPON MANY RIGHT NOW
"There is an opportunity right now to get healed, delivered and go forth in destiny, says the Lord. This is NOT a time to shrink back, be fearful or doubt who you are." God is perfecting things concerning your life, so don't hesitate in going forth in the ways he has been shaping or preparing you. Let your trust in the Lord perfect your hope and confidence that God has never failed you and he never will. GO FORTH-THE TIME IS NOW.
So how does this work for you? PREPARE PREPARE PREPARE. Repent and agree with the Lord in all areas of surrender. Let it start with your heart, for every issue stems from there. Agree with his promptings, pay attention to what keeps repeating to you. Pay attention to your dreams, nothing is coincidental right now as God is speaking and revealing his purposes in the earth. Most of all- SEEK HIS FACE.
IT IS TIME TO GET PREPARED
Matt. 25:1-4 “Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten bridesmaids who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. The five who were foolish didn’t take enough olive oil for their lamps, but the other five were wise enough to take along extra oil."
12 STEPS TO ORDER
repent for all stubbornness, idolatry, rebellion and pride-God is coming for these sins
prepare and partner in divine health, boost your immune system-the way you eat, exercise etc-get strategies
prepare at home with your family and with your children/parenting by allowing God to establish order in the home
prepare in your marriage-get unified and on one accord
prepare financially-ask God for wealth and kingdom strategies and have paper copies to prove your payments- the whole paperless thing sounds good, but it leaves you with only digital copies to prove what you owe or have paid. Also have cash on hand in case the banking system goes corrupt or sideways
prepare at work to influence and take your place as God's government official and in other spheres of influence as well
prepare for your future-planning ahead-not living one day or month at a time-stock up at home with canned goods and other household resources with a couple of months in mind
prepare in your relationships by sharing ideas and strategies while investing personally in the people God gave you
prepare your ministry by training those you have-looking at any restructuring that needs to take place -Matthew 6:33-Kingdom/global mindset vs.church mindset
prepare your own soul-get further healing/deliverance where-ever needed
prepare spiritually- Today is the day of salvation-make Jesus your Lord for the first time or renew your vow to serve him wholeheartedly
prepare to be the answer in the world -you write the books, or host the webinars, you take the lead and shape your world with your unique blueprint-you start the school, open the business etc...
"The Year of the Hand of the Lord"
As the Hand of the Lord comes upon your life, divine order, protection and blessings will begin taking place as you agree and prepare. God has orders of protection over your life, so don't fear a thing. Trust in and declare out loud- Psalm 46, 91 and 121 often. God is ordering his angels to watch over you. He is guarding your going out and your coming in. The Lord is the shade at your right hand, your shield, fortress and refuge. It is a year of his authority ruling on your behalf and in your life, were his verdict is final and where he has the last say. But you must prepare and submit to all of his directives and instructions right now.
If you do not prepare, and allow God to re-order your life, you will be left behind in what he is doing. Get under the shadow and protection of the Lord right now, by cooperating with him in every way. Not everything is a guarantee, we must agree with God.
I further prophesy that those the Lord is and has been preparing are coming forth now out of obscurity and into a time of arising and shining. They are coming into destiny, fruitfulness and plenty even when the world at large enters a global reset and time of famine. God is blessing and prospering his "prepared ones" and is shifting them into places to offer strategies and solutions from the throne room of heaven as well as, "being" the answer themselves. God is putting people into place right now for what is coming in the world.
"So be not dismayed says the Lord, when I shift you or your family. Some will shift to new locations, new territories, new spheres of influence, starting new businesses, new companies or new ministries. Don't forget that I am doing something new in the earth. These shifts will occur everywhere in the world. I am putting my Kingdom Shifters into place, all around the globe "for such a time as this." I am re-ordering things says the Lord and it is beginning in the home. I'm ordering new structures and ways of being together as the old ways are passing away. So get ready for the new things, and get prepared to shift. Get prepared to shift mentally as you take your mind back- get prepared to shift physically as you take your health back and get ready to shift practically as I show you a new and living way to prosper."
Get Into Place-Shift Right Now!
Esther 4:13-14 "Mordecai sent this reply to Esther: “Don’t think for a moment that because you’re in the palace you will escape when all other Jews are killed. If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?”
Go where the Lord sends you and do what he tells you to do. Salvation will come from another if you refuse to go. God is not playing right now and in times when he is moving as sovereign, grace looks very different. He will have his way this year and you can either get on board or you better move out of the way.
I encourage you to read the other prophetic words below as they gel and work together. God is bringing great restoration and recompense but it doesn't always come wrapped in the packages or look like we think it will. So look up and get ready, and be encouraged as the Lord brings his government and kingdom here on earth to restore his divine order.

God Is Indeed Doing a New Thing- A Part 2 Prophetic Word for 2020
As 2019 came to a close, as usual, I began to process with the Lord what the new year would hold as we journeyed with him. I've learned to live my life from this perspective as God doesn't do things randomly, and nether should we. This time I realized it was not only a new year that was approaching but a whole new decade and new "time" in the Lord. For years now God has continued to highlight Isaiah 43:19 to many in the Body of Christ.
"See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland."
I have literally been holding onto and heralding this message for over 3 years. At the end of January, I sensed the shift occurred where we truly entered a new place with the Lord. I know this applies to my ministry but I believe this is occurring in the Body of Christ as well. Part of the problem with us understanding new places is that they are new-never experienced before.
New: already existing but seen, experienced, or acquired recently or now for the first time.
The word for new in this scripture also means "fresh." So God will come and do a fresh thing in our lives. He will sometimes reset us and bring us back to something that didn't work in a previous season and make it fresh again to us, because of his timing and purposes. Many times in new seasons with the Lord, we begin learning things from a fresh perspective in him. There's nothing like journeying with God. It's like he will pick something back up with us that he started long ago and make it brand new or add a fresh wind on it, so we are revitalized in that new place and ready to bring it forth. It's almost like we've been processed over time to receive it again.
What new things is God doing in you? Where are you right now in your process? Do you even perceive it?
One of the ways I believe God is working in all of our lives, is by clearing out the old so we can handle the new things he desires us to carry and navigate. Mixture is an enemy to the pure things of God. God is undefiled -which means he has no corruption, impurity or anything unclean in him. The bible says in James 1:17 that God never casts a shifting shadow. He is indeed only pure, holy, virtuous and righteousness. So when desires to do something new in us, it will require a cleansing out of all things old, so that we carry his divine nature and character.
Mark 2:22"And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins.”
Timothy 2:20-21"In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use. Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work."
When God begins to do something new in us we must forsake old ways, which includes old standards and old ways of operating and doing life. It requires change and a shift in our thinking and living. His standard for change is always righteousness. He changes his standard for no one and for no generation. For some reason this generation believes God doesn't require righteous standards any longer, but its his way to us measure from a pure place and in justice. This change will require that we take some honest self examinations, and seek out deliverance and healing for our souls. Sin wounds and rules our souls and shapes us in iniquity with ungodly cycles and patterns of living .
God is coming for haughtiness in this new season. He is coming for all disobedience, anger, rebellion, stubbornness, fleshly tendencies and proclivities in our lives. He is coming for all unrighteousness and all ungodly fruit so he can restore us to himself and his presence.
Because God chose to partner with us in the earth in seeing his kingdom and will established as it is in heaven. But before we partner and go forth in all the new things with him, we must first undergo our own cleansing so we are RE-NEWED and REVIVED. We must undergo a purging from the old behaviors and thought patterns that lead us further into bondage in past seasons. He wants to restore us to his presence and get our generational blessings to us but the generational curses and iniquities must be dealt with first. God has an order of things.
God wants to take us into new land and new territories, but not looking like we did in the old seasons of our lives.
He is the fire and refiner and he is consuming us with his holy fire as we lay down our lives on the altar of sacrifice.
Romans 12:1-2 "I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, [but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
In these new places we will experience great abundance and harvest, and long seemingly overdue promises, for it is a time for promises to be fulfilled. It's a time where hope is no longer deferred in this new place of inheritance and blessing.
God is commanding the blessing on your behalf, as you have been faithful in prior seasons. He has seen all your toil and labor that you have done for him and he is well-pleased.
He's also bringing the prodigals home in this new season, so hold on mom and dads, the outcasts are returning home to Jesus, as Jesus is making ALL THINGS NEW.
In this new time of Holy Spirit expansion there will be times of great revival, where many souls will come in.
God is restoring righteousness in the earth in this new era. God is re-establishing order in every facet of society.Starting in the home and going all the way to national governments-on every level he is establishing his righteousness as his standard.
God is restructuring and rebuilding according to the blueprint of righteousness. New spiritual building codes and new protocols are being issued from heaven as God is rebuilding us -his temples and we must comply.
Haggai 2:3-9 NLT "Does anyone remember this house—this Temple—in its former splendor? How, in comparison, does it look to you now? It must seem like nothing at all! But now the Lord says: Be strong, Zerubbabel. Be strong, Jeshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest. Be strong, all you people still left in the land. And now get to work, for I am with you, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. My Spirit remains among you, just as I promised when you came out of Egypt. So do not be afraid.’ “For this is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies says: In just a little while I will again shake the heavens and the earth, the oceans and the dry land. I will shake all the nations, and the treasures of all the nations will be brought to this Temple. I will fill this place with glory, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. The future glory of this Temple will be greater than its past glory, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. And in this place I will bring peace. I, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, have spoken!””
Hebrews 12:25-29 NLT “Be careful that you do not refuse to listen to the One who is speaking. For if the people of Israel did not escape when they refused to listen to Moses, the earthly messenger, we will certainly not escape if we reject the One who speaks to us from heaven! When God spoke from Mount Sinai his voice shook the earth, but now he makes another promise: “Once again I will shake not only the earth but the heavens also.” This means that all of creation will be shaken and removed, so that only unshakable things will remain. Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe. For our God is a devouring fire.”
Philippians 2:9-11 NLT “Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Havakuk (Hab) 2:14 CJB “For the earth will be as full of the knowledge of ADONAI ’s glory as water covering the sea.”
"This great shaking that is coming will affect everything, yes even the deep places and bowels of the earth will feel my shaking says the Lord. For I will pour out my spirit on all flesh and my glory will cover the earth even as the waters cover the seas. All People shall know that I am Lord of heaven and of earth."
This shaking will reveal what is deep within the heart of man. It will reveal secrets. He is coming for the deep hidden things. He is coming to shake down every high place and anything established in idolatry. He’s coming for all ungodly structures in us and in the world. Every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of Jesus Christ is coming down in this great time of shifting/shaking. God is going deep within the heart of man to sift it all out.
Pt. 1 2020-The Year of Divine Order and Recompense
Proverbs 37:23-25 KJV-The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand. I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
David said I have been young and now I am old and I have never seen God forsake the righteous ones.
Proverbs 37:23 Ampc- The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step].
The year where God is having his way and he is repaying his righteous ones for all the years the thief and the robber has stolen from them. He is restoring those whose hearts are set on him. A year and TIME of abundant harvest as God decrees it. (Amos 9:11-15) He will be divinely ordering breakthrough and blessings and abundance- where God restores and returns to you what was lost or stolen. This includes a time of great harvest and abundant blessings and a return of the exiled ones. It’s a year of divine restitution and recompense, where you lift your eyes up and know where your help has come from. From the lord! He is Lord over all! He is Maker of heaven and earth. It’s the year of God’s divine order where his orders of protection and deliverance will be experienced and known. The Lord is your guardian. You will know him as guardian this year. He watches over you to keep you from stumbling. He watches over your coming and going. He watches over his divine orders for you to make sure they are completed. God is your Shepherd and Overseer of your destiny and all that pertains to you. He oversees your progress and his plans for our lives as our shepherd guardian. As my guardian God is Divinely ordering my steps, relationships and his plans!
“You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail.” Proverbs 19:21 NLT You can be sure that God's purposes will prevail in your life as you heed the voice of the Lord and follow his ways this year.
It’s a year of the fear of the Lord.“Fear of the Lord leads to life, bringing security and protection from harm.” Proverbs 19:23
It's a year of great fruit and divine favor-a year of great promised restoration and divine harvest.
“Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree.“Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel:“They’ll rebuild their ruined cities.They’ll plant vineyards and drink good wine.They’ll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables.And I’ll plant them, plant them on their own land.They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them.” God, your God, says so. Amos 9:13-15 The Message
God is restoring his temples of worship -it’s his people, we are the temple of the Holy Ghost. In this harvest there will be massive salvation's and conversions, much like Saul of Tarsus. A great harvest of the Land and a returning to the Lord, with weeping and repentance.The restoration of his temple will usher in the greatest glory of his presence to the world. (Watch Israel this year)
It’s a year of heralding the word of the Lord and seeing his promises fulfilled in our lives. It's a year to trust what the prophets are saying and follow their instructions.
"And they rose early in the morning and went out into the wilderness of Tekoa. And when they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem! Believe in the Lord your God, and you will be established; believe his prophets, and you will succeed.” 2 Chronicles 20:20
God is ordering a correction to the way we see things. A correction to the way we view him and his word. . A year of knowing Jesus the shepherd the Guardian and the prophet. A year of Gods justice and remembering that righteousness is his standard. It’s a year of his authority and a year where God rules in matters with a final verdict. God has the final say in our lives. “The earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof, the world and the people in it.“... and God has the final say in your life as everywhere is his jurisdiction- he is the highest ruling authority-PERIOD!
It’s a year of divine gate-keeping where people will take there place in regions and territories.
It’s a year were God's voice will be heard through decisive decisions and rulings. There will be no mistake that it was God ruling in the matter. Great interventions of the Lord will take place as God intervenes and overseers matters in the lives of his people.
God's justice will sweep across this land and continent by his Spirit because HE WILL have his way. It’s a year to keep your eyes looking up to Jesus as the author and the finisher of your faith. It’s a year to lift up your eyes to heaven for your help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121.... It’s time to put your trust hope and faith in the Lord.
Psalm 91 will continue to be a place of refuge for us as the people of God and must be declared out often.
Lastly, we will see spectacular displays of God’s power and glory, for God is repairing and rebuilding his people right now. This re-positions us and prepares us to be temples of his glory -his divine presence virtue strength and power. God is restoring his priesthood! (Ezekiel 44). It is time of great destiny moments and of breakthrough as we cross over to our inheritances and promised lands, for it is indeed a time of epic shifts of divine proportions.

The Restoration of the Gift of the Apostle to the Earth
On May 1, 2019, I was awakened a little after midnight, to an encounter with the Lord. In the encounter I sensed the heart of Father God for the grace gift and office of the apostle. His love, desire and heart for the apostle was very much impressed upon me as I laid there listening to his voice. I had a sense that hell really hated the office and gift of the apostle, but that Father God really loved them. Depending on the streams of ministries that you follow, or church you attend, you may not hear much about the role of the apostle in the New Testament church of today. However, that is not the New Testament of the Bible.
"Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit."Ephesians 2:19-22
In this time with the Lord, I really had the strong sense not only of his love but the honor for the apostle. It is being restored in the earth. Minds will change about who they are and what they bring as a gift to the church and earth. I think we many times forget that the culture of heaven is one not just of love but of honor as well.
Apostles are builders and reformers and are foundation to kingdom work and expansion. They have a grace to plow, build and work and that's why they operate so strongly in the Ox and Nehemiah anointing.
"Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal. In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle." Rev. 4:6-7
The Ox is one of the manifestations or faces of Christ mentioned here in this passage of scripture. The gospel of Matthew points to Jesus as the ox face of God, Luke is the human face, and John is the face of the eagle.
A lot of prophetic pictures and art are presented with three of these faces- except for the Ox. Why? Because the Ox is a picture of servant-hood, hard work and diligence. We don't like the work associated with the Ox anointing, but God knows that this is such a necessary component of building, and he entrusted it to the apostle. Is it only for the apostle? No it is not, but apostle's have a grace to work, plow and build more than the normal person in God's kingdom, so they operate in it as a lifestyle. Not everyone can carry such a yoke on their shoulders long term, but God gave the apostle a strength and a grace to shoulder such loads. As I was sensing all of this with the Lord, I sensed his desire to honor them in the earth. We often speak of Jesus as the Great Shepherd, and He indeed is. I love this depiction of Jesus as One who watches over us, guarding us and protecting us from harm and injury. But Jesus was also the greatest apostle, and we so need this aspect of him in the earth again on a larger scale. And that is what I want to share with you today. I sense the restoration of this office coming to regions on a greater scale,teaming up with prophets to build and expand the kingdom for such a time as this. I sensed from Father God that a regional anointing was coming upon the office of Apostle and Prophet to work together along with the office of the Evangelist. I sensed it on a global scale.God the Father loved the world so much that he sent us the greatest Apostle, Jesus Christ, and he is once again gathering, appointing, commissioning and sending his apostles, to establish his kingdom in the regions of the earth.
The apostle has the rank and jurisdiction in the spirit to overthrow principalities and territorial spirits that have ruled regions for decades, and for centuries in some cases. The fear of the Lord, signs, wonders and miracles are all manifestations that exist in apostolic work. Multiplication, increase and a gathering of souls is all apart of this joint labor between,the apostle, prophet and evangelist. It's a 3 corded strand of God's grace that is not easily broken.
The Apostle is the sign that points to the greater miracles and works of Jesus. It is the sign of a New Testament church and the reformation that is taking place as God assembles the picture and face of Jesus again in the Lion (Evangelist), Ox (Apostle) and Eagle (Prophet). It was the Acts of the Apostles where God demonstrated his Spirit, power, and mighty works. Without the Apostle Peter, Paul, James or John we would not know of such acts, along with many prophets and evangelists.
For some of you reading this you may think they are already on the scene moving in signs and wonders, and they are no doubt. But I sense a greater sending to the apostle, prophet and evangelist in the days ahead. This will be common again not the exception.
