Some current prophetic words and some teaching on prophesy, including notes from the Wildwood Church School of Prophesy.

The Words of Darkness Are Cancelled

Below is a prophetic word from Geoff Pick, founder of the Facebook group Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival.

Geoff writes: As a small group of us gathered on zoom to seek God and share prophetic words with others. The Holy Spirit was answering my prayer of the last few days to reveal the heart of heaven concerning the present moment of crisis. A sister shared that she sensed the angel of revelation was present to speak. Below is what the Holy Spirit is expressing concerning His call to us at this present moment. Please weigh and respond to His call as it speaks to you. You are of course free to share this as you are led.

The Spirit of God has come to reveal the hidden work that goes on all around us. The decades of grace lasted long and these days of abundance lasted long, yet the hope of heaven become dim and distant in those days of peace and safety. The enemy had quietly been sending sleep on many busy lives and time for treasuring God alone became rare for so many of my own.

The plague has been an alarm to call the sleeper to awaken. The moment for many to seek the Lord of all. The Spirit of death has said, “let the children of God be deceived in this time of uncertainty”. While a few are reckless with their own safety and the welfare of others, others sit in fear of the powers of darkness. Many voices cause much noise on the subject of the plague, bringing contention and distraction.

I’m not calling you to absorb words that dishearten you. I want you to continue with confidence in my promises, deepening your prayer life and stretching your faith in me for the coming harvest. As the world loses its busy momentum and pleasures, I am detaching my people from these former distractions. Now is a time for strengthening you, the body of Christ, and for each one of you to come to me and surrender wholeheartedly.

The present season in the world brings days of uncertainty. I am calling you my own to experience the reality of resting and rooting down in me. Trust me to guide, lead and provide, as the difficult times continue to ebb and flow.

My body is to be strengthened and envisioned for battle. Prepare your swords for advance. You are not to fear the darkness, as my victory sits ahead, you shall see my Kingdom moving forward step by step. There is a vast road ahead of conquest and battle – stand together – led by my Holy one, the walls of the enemy have already been commanded to fall before you who walk before me.

The rain is starting to fall (Prophetic word)

Come up into the hills…

The rain of the Holy Spirit is falling. Even now, it has started; a fine drizzle is beginning to soak the hills. “Come up into the hills,” says the Lord, “And stand in my cloud. Let me soak you. Let your clothes get drenched as the drizzle penetrates through to your skin. And when you are soaking wet, run down into the valleys and announce that my rain is coming. Call my people out of their houses to stand by their doors and wait for my rain. Call those whose hearts are hardened through unbelief to come out in the rain, to believe me enough to let their hearts be soaked and softened again, softened enough for my word to be sown and take root in their lives. For I will soak even the pathways where the world has trampled the soil hard, and where the enemy steals the word as soon as it lands: my word will be sown in some of these places and will bear fruit. So pray for hardened hearts to be softened, for my rain is beginning to fall. And where you struggle with unbelief yourselves, recognise that this is because your own hearts have been hardened too, because it is unbelief that hardens the heart. My fine drizzle is the moist breath of my love, gentle but penetrating: expose your heart to me again and let my rain soften the crusts of your disappointment and feelings of failure, and you will know my word – even that word that you have cast aside in your unbelief – come and bear fruit in your life to my glory.”

Make Right Angles (Prophesy)

MAKE RIGHT ANGLES

“Mercy and truth have met together, righteousness and peace have kissed.” (Ps 85:10)

I saw a parallelogram, leaning over so it was nearly flat. Two corners had very obtuse angles, and the opposite two had very acute angles. I felt the Lord say this:

“My house is leaning over. It is leaning over because the corners are weak. The corners are where Word and Spirit join. In some places the rigor of My word is lacking, and although those places are open to My Spirit, they are also open to that which is not of My Spirit, and so they are weakened. Other places at the opposite corners have no openness to My Spirit, so they are narrow and sharp and do not display my glory or release my power.”

The right angle is neither obtuse nor acute, but is made at the cross, “Where mercy and truth have met together, righteousness and peace have kissed.” (Ps 85:10)

See me upright on the cross with my arms outstretched to you. This is the right angle. Now stand on all I have said, stretch your arms out to one another, and be open to all that I can do. Stand straight, be open. Make right angles. With these I build My Church.”

The Bowling Alley (A prophesy)

I saw a bowling alley, with all the pins being sent flying in one strike. I believe that the Lord is going to strike at many preconceptions of leadership in the church, where Man has built his own hierarchies instead of just making disciples:  pins are going to be sent flying in different directions, with not one “kingpin“ pre-eminent and prominent in front of the others. I believe we will soon see, even within the next three months, a prominent international ministry being skittled, for the Lord will say of the leader: “He is standing in front of me, so I am moving him out of the way.“ This will be a sign to the church that the marks of leadership are to be seen in love and service, the original mandate given by Jesus; not gifting and a high profile. He will be silencing clashing cymbals who proclaim His words with no love in their hearts, and drawing them aside to wash their robes and renew their first love.

Shepherds will continue to guard their flocks but will no longer have to contain them, because the Lord is pulling up man’s fences and replacing them with His fire: “The Lord himself will be a wall of fire around the city and the glory within it.“ (Zachariah 2:5) The fivefold ministries will give their time and energy to encouraging and releasing those within their sphere rather than trying to consolidate and extend their influence, for it is God and not man who will give the increase. Ministers will not be lining up behind one leader to bring renown to their church, but will be sent flying in the same power as their congregations, to bring renown only to Jesus. Small unknown fellowships will explode; big famous churches will dwindle, because in the days to come Lord will allow His glory to go to no other.

Where there is temptation to parade the ego and build in the flesh, what God speaks to Baruch the scribe in Jeremiah 45: 4-5 speaks today: “Behold what I have built I will break down, and what I have planted I will pluck up, that is this whole land. And do you seek great things for yourself? Do not seek them; behold I will bring adversity on all flesh,” says the Lord. “But I will give your life to you as a prize in all places, wherever you go.”

It will be as the parable of the yeast, where the life in all the grains will bring the Kingdom of God throughout the whole Earth.

Pursuing Love (Teaching)

Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy.” (1 Cor 14:1)


We all know the above scripture: it’s wheeled out often enough as a proof text for the prophetic and for the gifts of the Holy Spirit. And we all know the context: it follows Paul’s famous treatise on Love, and is sandwiched in the middle of the New Testament training manual on exercising the gifts of the Spirit. Both the “command” words are emphatic in their meaning. To pursue is to chase after someone until you have caught up with them, not just jog behind then a t a distance; and to desire has a connotation of a zealous, earnest longing and reaching for something, not just a wishy-washy want, an “it would be nice if…”

Chase after love, reach for spiritual gifts, especially prophesy. How do we respond to this verse in the context of church? And is one of these two injunctions more important in God’s sight than the other? I think the following story can give us some insights:

And behold, there came a man named Jairus, and he was a ruler of the synagogue. And he fell down at Jesus’ feet and begged Him to come to his house, for he had an only daughter about twelve years of age, and she was dying. But as He went, the multitudes thronged Him. Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped. And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?” When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ ” But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.” Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately. And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.” (Luke 8: 41-48)

There are many points in this story that we can ponder on, but one thing that stands out for me is this: Jesus stopped for the woman who touched him. I can imagine myself in that situation. It would probably go something like this: ‘I’ve just got a call to pray for the daughter one of the city’s leaders; and not only that, but she is dying! So not only am I being called on by a VIP, but this is serious stuff, and it’s urgent. Out of my way everyone! I can’t stop! I’m on an important mission…” And so on. How many snares for the flesh there are in that scenario. And even if had “perceived power going out of me,” I would probably just have thought “Great! Someone ese has got healed too. That’s cool. Now how much further to Jairus’s house?”

How different is the way of the Spirit. “Who touched me?” The disciples just wanted to get to Jairus’s house and thought Jesus was being ridiculous, but they hadn’t understood the meaning of “touched.” They saw just the clamouring of the flesh, but the touch that Jesus felt went beyond the flesh and reached His Spirit. So He put the “important” mission on pause while He stopped to give the woman her life back. Not only did she receive her physical healing, but He affirmed her identity (“Daughter”), He encouraged her heart (be of good cheer), He built her faith, He ministered wholeness beyond her symptoms, and He gave her peace. He did not just impart a gift of healing; He loved her.

Again, when the 5,000 were fed, it was because Jesus allowed their need into His agenda. He had just heard of the death of john the Baptist and was in a “remote place” with His disciples, where the context suggests He had planned to spend some time processing and no doubt praying over what had just happened. But the crowds followed Him, and he had compassion on them (Matt 14: 13-21). On this occasion the gift of the Holy Spirit was the working of miracles, and He empowered the disciples to minister it. But again the vehicle, as it was throughout His ministry, was love.

I see gifting like an Arabian coffee pot with a long curved spout, full of coffee. This is our gifting. We stay full of the Spirit, and we keep the coffee on the heat – close to Jesus. It’s full of everything in 1 Corinthians 12 and 14. But the “most excellent way” that Paul shows is in chapter 13 is how we pour the coffee: we pour it carefully, in love, into the cups that come our way. We do not pour unless God tells us to, and He shows us which cups to pour into. Sometimes, as with the 5,000, there may be more cups than we have coffee in the pot, but if God has told us to pour, we pour. And He will keep filling the pot as we do. However it happens. we direct our gifting in Love. Because if we don’t, it goes all over people’s laps…This “most excellent way” is actually the ONLY way: without it, as 1 Cor 13 emphasises, we are nothing.

Jesus Himself makes it clear that it is possible to have gifting without love:

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” (Matt 7: 21-23)

To do the will of the Father and to keep the law of Christ is to love. To minister without it is to practice lawlessness: it’s that simple. So to come back to the original question: can we say that love is more important than gifting? The answer, I think, is that we can’t. Not because of the relative values of each, but simply because we can’t weigh them against each other. I think the assumption for first century Christians was that everyone could expect to move in supernatural giftings. I don’t think anyone at Ephesus, or Sardis, or even lukewarm Laodicea would have thought of saying “I don’t operate in any gifts of the Holy Spirit, but I’m full of love!” In His letters to the seven churches in Revelation, Jesus didn’t tell any of them to work on their prophesy and healing ministries: He told them to return to their first love; not to tolerate compromise, and to persevere to the end, even unto death.

I think most churches today are probably a long way from the level of faith of first century believers.  In the last century – since Azuza Street – the Lord has been leading His people to contend for that faith again. And now, since Covid, the world has changed:  one of the consequences of lockdown has been a proliferation of digital meetings, and along with that trend an increase in both the awareness and the availability of training courses for ministry, especially in the realm of the prophetic, to help believers satisfy their biblical desire for spiritual gifts. Even though we can’t meet as churches, the Holy Spirit is making sure that the resources are available for the five-fold ministries to “equip the saints for the work of ministry.” But in this digitised, Covidised world, where we can no longer say “Who touched me?” it is even more essential that we “pursue love.”


Proverbs 25:16 says:
“Have you found honey?
Eat only as much as you need,
Lest you be filled with it and vomi
t.”

If we pour, God will fill. But if we make the filling, rather than the pouring our priority – the pot rather than the cups, the spiritual gifts rather than the way of love – we run the risk of swelling in self-importance rather than growing in faith, and we will “vomit” instead of pouring. We don’t pursue the gifts; we pursue love, desiring the gifts. And as we concentrate on the cups and let them interrupt our agendas, God will give us what He wants to pour into them.

Entering the Land 3: Gilgal (Teaching)

We are the new generation, and we are camped between the Jordan and the Promised Land. We have not been this way before. Some of us feel we have been here a long time, waiting for everyone else to catch up; others are just arriving. Ahead of us we see the promise of many prophetic words for this coming season being fulfilled. But as we look into the promised land we see the walls of an enemy stronghold before us. Each of us is facing a wall: it may be in our ministry; it may be in our personal lives; it may be the strongholds we are seeing in the nations, and it may be any combination of these. But the Lord says: “Because you are seeing Jericho, it means you are about to enter the Land.”

And we ask: “Lord, how?”

And He answers: “Gilgal. I will roll away your reproach as I did at Gilgal. Make yourselves vulnerable Me, and rest in my presence. And then in that place of peace I will bring you my word, and you will move out on my word to enter the land with a trumpet sound and a shout of victory, and you will see the walls of the stronghold collapse. Where is your reproach? I will roll it away. What stronghold do you face? You will see its walls collapse.”

And some of us might say: “Lord, I’ve been staring at that stronghold for years, even for all of my life. How come I’ve never yet seen the victory in this?”

And He replies: “Because only now are you at Gilgal. But you need to take off your shoes, for you stand on holy ground.”

Whatever shoes we have worn to take us to this point must be removed: from here we move forward in the holiness and the beauty of His presence. When that stronghold collapses it’s because of the unassailable victory of the cross. It is not about us, it’s about Jesus. And if it’s taken us most of our lives for him to get the glory, that’s fine, because that is our purpose and the point of our lives. It doesn’t matter how long it’s taken to get to this point: it’s the glory of the cross that counts.

“In the midst of the rubble of compromise I am raising up a strong tower.” (A prophesy)

A number of people have seen this tower in various forms, in dreams and visions. I read 2 Kings 18 this morning and I feel that I have been given the following:

“Love one another and hold fast to my word. As you build one another up I will build you up: as you stand in a circle around my fire others will come in and join you and the circle will be widened. And more will come and stand on your shoulders and you will support another, and it will be My strength in you that supports the one above you and My abilities in you that enable you to keep your balance as the tower grows and the circle widens. And you will all be close to the flame because as the circle widens and the tower grows so My fire will increase. The ones at the borrow will say to those outside: “Come in and climb up!” And those at the top will say: “Come on up: climb onto my shoulders!” And the one at the top will be no higher than he one at the bottom, because you will all be one as I and the Father are one.

It will be as in the days of Hezekiah, when by my own breath I both blew Israel like chaff out of the land that I had given to their fathers, and at the same time restored my Kingdom rule out of Jerusalem. As this happened within a few short years so also you will see within a few short years my strong tower being established on Earth in the midst of the rubble of compromise. Do not judge by the sight of your eyes or listen with the hearing of your ears, for it is by my Spirit that I am blowing down, and by my Spirit that I am building up. Nevertheless a day will come when you will see what I have done, because there will be a clearing away of rubble that will leave my strong tower revealed for all to see.

I am working among all the nations. You will see me strengthen my hand in Israel despite the opposition that is coming, and this will be a sign to you. I am calling time on corruption and compromise. America will be a sign to all the nations that I will fulfil the word I spoke to my servant Isaiah: “I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plumb line; hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie, and water will overflow your hiding place” (Isaiah 28:17).”

So, love one another and hold fast to my word. Even now I have started my building. The fire is kindled and I am gathering those who are drawn to my flame. Draw close to one another and draw close to me, and always be ready to say to those who are being drawn out of the darkness “Come on in and stand next to me, close to the fire. Isn’t it wonderful?” And do not be distracted by sideshows, for there will also be fireworks, but there is no warmth in them and they dazzle for a moment then disappear: stay close to the fire for there is wonder enough in my flames for all the world to see my glory. So, love one another, hold fast to my word, and stay close to my flame, and I will build my church.”

The Cage and the Building

Susie Molina and Jarrod Cooper both received a “word for 2021,“ posted UK Prophetic Releasers facebook page and on ukpropheticwords.blogspot.com. Jarrod had a dream in which many of “his” congregation streamed out of the church while he was at the front leading the meeting: when he asked the Lord why this was, he was told that they were leaving in order to go out on the streets and preach the gospel. The dream was an illustration of the words “The Church has left the building.” Susie, in the two visions “The caged lion and the staircase” writes of the church as a tired, weakened lion lying in a cage with the door open – free to leave but choosing to remain. “…Due to his long confinement, the lion had not been mentally and physically prepared and fit to see the enemy attack come and deal with it well because he had forgotten how to respond like a true lion in the wild. Chosen confinement, false comfort and increasing apathy had compromised and dulled his natural responses.”

As I read these two messages I saw that the two are closely coupled: the “cage” is the “building.” Many prophetic voices are talking about a shaking of the establishment, about new equipping, new anointing, new release for ministry for the coming season, but I believe that central to all of this is the following:

God is doing a realignment of leadership in the church and will establish Ephesians 4:11-13 as a foundational principal of ministry. I believe the Lord says: “I am going to re-align the five-fold ministries with their original purpose. I did not give these ministry gifts to build my church. I will do that. They were not given for platforms and audiences, for I am your platform and I am your audience. I gave them ‘for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,’ so that all can go out and make disciples. For making disciples is the work of ministry. I build my church; you make disciples. In building, apostles were given to equip the saints to build; in prophesying, prophets were given to equip others to prophesy; evangelists to equip to preach the gospel, pastors to equip to lead, and teachers to equip others to teach and understand my Word. I am taking my church back, and I am releasing my ministry gifts to release others to make disciples in the power of my Spirit, and they will go out and make more disciples because they too have been equipped. Because this is how I have always planned it, and this is the time when you will see my plans being realised. Freely you have received; freely give. As you flow, you will grow. Where there were congregations within walls, there will be conflagrations of holy fire beyond the walls. This is how my glory will be revealed and how my Bride will come to maturity. I am restoring the wild instincts of the lion, and she will shake off her apathy and come out of the building that has caged her in for so long, and she will roar on the streets. And it is the roar of the Lion of Judah that will be heard.”

Signs of the Times

This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith…

As we look at the USA, Covid, and the rest of it, we can easily take our eyes off things above and dwell on what we see in the world. But what is happening in the world is only a reflection of what is taking place in the Spirit, and some of the scenario of the spiritual battle is given to us – cryptically, I know – in the book of Revelation. When tears come to our eyes – as they do to mine, when I miss my grandchildren – we need to remember that the day is coming when He will wipe all those tears away. But before then, we are called to watch and pray. And if we watch, there are some things that are visible, but which point to the bigger picture. Here is a little snapshot of a bit of it:

A lady (in the USA) with a small Ebay business sold patriotic items, which she advertised on facebook. Facebook (and possibly Ebay as well, but I’m not sure about that detail) closed her down, because use of the terms “patriot” and “patriotic” are now “contrary to their policies.” She now no longer trades. Because of Facebook’s perceived anti-republican stance, many Christians and other republicans turned to a small rival to FB called “Parler” which some of you may have heard of. Parler is French for “to speak”, and it’s a platform that champions freedom of expression – in particular, but of course not exclusively, freedom to speak what God speaks. Parler used Amazon’s online web services platform. Amazon has now closed down Parler.

Following the Capitol Hill demonstration, the Facebook mouthpieces have justified their policy by saying that encouraging patriotism can incite violence. Yet FB has kept complete silence over all the Black Lives Matter rampages throughout 2020, so their policy has nothing to do with violence and everything to do with who they want to silence.  What is actually happening is that the online giants are closing ranks against those who do not agree with their liberal policies. I only know of that one lady who has lost her business so far, but I’m sure there will be more, and we can only see the “you can only use our platform if we agree with you” trend continuing.

Perhaps you can see where this is going? It’s Revelation chapter 13, verse 17 in particular: “No one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” If this seems far off, we need to look again, because that lady who loves her country and what it stands for would say that it’s already beginning to happen.

Meanwhile COVID continues to stalk the globe, and the thin ice of the world economy gets thinner by the day as it trades its mountain of make-believe printed money. By now we’ve all heard of bitcoin and blockchain, and some of us may have used it. The solution to a worldwide economic collapse would be a complete reset to a digital currency. China has already successfully trialled one – the E Rmb – in several cities, including Chengdu and Shenzhen. And in the Covid arena again, a comprehensive and international “track and trace” programme would seem to be an obvious development to combat the virus. It would also be very useful to governments trying to close down the Church. The digital cloud covers the whole of the world.

This of course is speculative. But what could we have, if we put these threads together – and it may not be as far away as we would like to think –  may be something like this:

We are the digital state. We do not have national boundaries. The nations belong to us, and we belong to the Prince of the Power of the Air, because we are the Cloud. We know who you are and where you come in and go out. You cannot trade unless you sign up to our policies, and our policies exclude the Church of Jesus Christ. You cannot trade unless you use our currency. If you do not belong to us you will be cut off from society, and you will die.”

We need to look beyond the cloud, and look to the things above, where the Sun of Righteousness is shining. Because He will break through. The currency of the World may well end up as bitcoin, but the currency of the Kingdom is faith, and “This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.” (1 John 5:4) And amongst Kingdom businesses and financial organisations, God is already raising up an Ark of resources where this currency is in operation and where God’s people will be able to find shelter from the coming flood. So hen we see the news and read the papers, let us also be sure to read the signs of the times. Let us watch and pray, because we do not know the day or the hour…

The Amazing Plane

A prophesy given to Andrew Baker, of Make Way Ministries
19 September 2020

My wife Carole sang the most beautiful song this morning in the Spirit. I came and sat quietly in the presence and the Holy Spirit gave me an amazing vision.

I was taken to an airfield, quite a large airfield, but clearly a military one, and I saw rows of jets, all the usual type of aircraft that are used in a war, lots of these that have been used for many years. Helicopters, large bombers, jets; all the usual conventional kind of aircraft. Many of the pilots were standing on the steps by their planes.

Suddenly a big hangar door opened on the right hand side of my picture and out was pulled the most amazing new aircraft I’ve ever seen. Its nose was down at the front, pointed down, stubby, not like the Concorde. It was long, like a passenger plane with windows and yet somehow it could be concertinaed into a small plane. The wings were very long and wide and yet somehow they too could be concertinaed into a small unit. It was a multi-purpose plane. One minute it looked like a fighter; there were guns all over it of the most amazing kind. I have never seen anything like it as a jet plane; yet, another minute it was a harmless looking humongous size passenger plane, obviously had bombing facilities there were right out of sight.

This was a plane that I think the world would call a ‘new generation’ of plane. This was just so amazing that all the pilots stood on their steps by their little jets and by their bombers with her mouths open, looking in amazement to see what this was. The public came against the fence around the outside of the airfield and they were all looking aghast! Everyone in the tower, yes, everyone was amazed. What is this amazing looking plane? It was a completely new weapon.

The Lord said to me that this represents you, it represents every individual in the body of Christ, those who will listen. It represents every group who will listen, every church, every business, every organisation or Association who will listen to what I’m saying in these days. It’s been like Jonah in the whale’s belly: the church, you, everyone who is listening and who is flexible and willing to do things My way, is in this situation. You have been like Jesus in the tomb, all waiting to come forth. When Jesus came forth, it was with a new authority and power even greater than anything He’d used on the earth! He was raised to the fullness of life as king of kings and Lord of lords with all authority and power in heaven and on earth.

It’s the same with Christians today who are listening to God. We’ve been in the hangar, out of sight, being prepared. Most of the conventional methods of preaching the gospel in the western world are no longer really working. Christians are trying to use the existing methods from the last season to deal with situations that are going on at the beginning of this new season, and, yes, of course, they are still useful but there is no longer the level of power needed.

These are the days when the devil is throwing everything at this world to try to stop Jesus returning. The power of darkness is trying to completely shroud the sun. The power of darkness is appearing and we think of it as Covid, as plastic pollution, as climate change, as financial collapse, as terrorism, as hackers, of wars, of floods, of fires, to mention but a few of the plagues on the earth at this time. The world is falling apart but these issues that we see now are just like pimples on the skin; we have not yet seen the skin break and the puss ooze out from under it yet. The devil is fighting his final battle to try and stop Jesus returning. We are living in those days. So, Christ has to raise up his church, just as he said he would, that will show and manifest who He really is to the powers and principalities of darkness – Ephesians 3:10, “…that now the manifold wisdom of God may be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places.”

This is the war, these are the days we are living in, but God’s people are being filled with power and rebuilt into a new form, as it were, for this battle. We will see God’s people getting stronger, God’s people going uphill as the world is going downhill. Favour and even provision will be upon the people of God who will listen, take heed and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit into this new season.

There needs to be a new level for the Christian today to impact what is going on in the world. The same Holy Spirit, the same Christ, just manifesting in a fresh way. Now Christ Jesus will come through His church in a power and authority not seen before in the earth, not even seen by religious leaders who will all stand aghast looking at this move of God. It will bring revival and reformation, restoration and renewal. It will bring change. It will bring light in the darkness and it will prepare the way.

The people of God will move in power and provision. They’ll find themselves in positions like Joseph, like Daniel. They’ll find themselves in all kinds of authority around the earth and people will look to them in order to see how to get out of the position that the world is in. They will bring people to the hope of life. This new move will be brought by Jesus Christ Himself through His church in these last days.

It will be because of His power, the power of the Holy Spirit, the power of angels, that these things will come to pass: “‘Not by might, nor by power (man’s power) but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts.” (Zech 4:6).

The plane is ready to be brought out onto the runway now. So, now you know why you’ve been hidden, why as a leader you were asking ‘what do I do?’ ‘I can’t quite see, I can’t quite understand’. Of course, you wouldn’t understand. If you were told to be expecting to host and teach a group of people, to get ready for them, and last year and the year before you had 30 people for each event you held, then you would expect 30 people again, perhaps plus a few more. In the new season, maybe 1000 people suddenly arrive!!

If you were used to dealing with small devils and now a principality comes against you, you would not have been prepared unless the Lord had pulled you aside and rebuilt a completely new you in the Spirit! If you have always been used in a particular way in the kingdom, it may well surprise you that God may want to use you in a completely different way!

So it will be on the face of the earth that that which we are being prepared for right now is ‘out of this world’ and is, indeed from ‘out of this world’. It’s beyond our thinking, beyond our understanding. This is the new plane that now will emerge from the hanger… and then, after this last warfare, Jesus returns. Amen
