Before the end of 2010 we are going to see a “New Great Awakening” in the earth, but it is our responsibility to make sure it comes to our nations, to our churches and families.
For God would say, “Sixteen centuries from the birth of My church, My church had grown formal. Man was seeking a more personal, spiritual and immediate kind of assurance. Something that would touch their hearts directly and guarantee that they would indeed be saved. This atmosphere has cycled around again for you. At that time I brought a “Great Awakening” I swept through the English speaking world. Then I brought a second Great Awakening when it looked like the only faith that remained inoculated people from Me. In England there was the Methodist revival, in Wales the Welsh revival.
I hid The Awakening from the wise and prudent, those who loved intellectualism and I am again coming to reveal this Great Awakening to babes. There is a broken generation and I will heal them with a heart transplant. Upon the youth and university campuses I will bring great joy from Holy Spirit encounters, healing their brokenness, shame and addiction. You will see My goodness for I like and love you.
This Awakening will be built upon a prayer and worship base. I remember geography and Revival Trade routes, those that carried this Awakening back and forth across North America and Europe. You will do it again. This Awakening will be preserved by those of discipline and godliness. The media will also support My wave of sovereign healing.”
A Time to be Nimble
We are on an important trek right now and we are to stay nimble, ‘lean and mean’, not picking up things on the way that will weigh us down. We need to stay focused on the goal before us. Releasing the grip we have had on over-structured, over-programmed church.
For God would say, “There have been so many small distractions that have tried to attach themselves to you, like wet sand on your hands. They have been accumulating slowly so its been almost undetected. This season will be one of shaking off the distractions, which will allow you to sense more clearly what lies ahead. Stay nimble!”
God is moving with acceleration and we need to partner with Him and be more nimble in our response. God is giving a shorter response time to His moving. Many in this next season will be asking what they have done wrong to not engage with the supernatural side of God. The answer will be ‘because they held too tightly to what they had built’.
Don’t miss out on this blessing. (Isaiah 52:2) “Shake off your dust; rise up, sit enthroned, O Jerusalem. Free yourself from the chains on your neck, O captive Daughter of Zion.”
Explosions and Catapulting
2010 begins a time of explosions and catapulting. Many will be catapulted into their divine destinies and some into different nations.
This is a time God is bringing you to your mountain like Caleb so that you can take of your mountain. (Josh 14:11-12) There will be those who are moved and some radically rocketed forward in their destiny.
Many will shift from the commissioning of Elisha in 1 Kings 19 when Elijah put his cloak upon him. Launching into 2 Kings 2 where Elisha picked up the fallen cloak of Elijah during his departure in the chariot.
For God would say, “Get out of the interval waiting place and pick up the cloak! Go back and stand on the banks of your Jordan and cry with expectation for My miraculous multiplied power to come upon you.”
Get ready for explosions of God’s light as gross darkness comes upon the earth and people. (Isa 60:1-3) “But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentile nations shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.” This is a realm of the Lord’s explosive enlightenment and glory, to manifest the power of a resurrected Jesus, in and out of the church.
Mantles for Change
God said, “In this season I am giving Mantles for Change.”
He is providing an accelerated metamorphose, which is, change through supernatural means. Some mantles will be mended as we are altered. God is mantling us with what has been unfamiliar, unaccustomed and untried authority, influence and responsibility.
1.For some it will bring inventiveness and solutions, the possibility for a new era of thought. It is time to believe Luke 1:37, that with God all things are possible, in order that the quality of life for others would improve, through inventions.
2.For others it will release authentic identity where the enemy falsely yoked you with lies.
3.Consecrated holy lives will be pursued as true repentance (change) clothes you.
4.This mantle of change will affect our position of how we view Jesus Christ. (1Cor 13:12) “Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.” We are going to see new dimensions of God.
5.God is giving us mantles of change in order for us to bring change to our atmosphere.
New Divine Order
The question of this new decade will be: “How much of the kingdom of God can actually be expressed before the second coming of Christ Jesus?”
As we emerge from the ruins of our passive Christianity, we are being given the responsibility for this new divine order of reformation. We must learn to discern and judge on a new level in order to not remain in old destructive patterns and to correct past mistakes. Repeating the old can hijack us from entering into our highest potential.
This can be a time of recovery of what we lost or was robbed from us during our wilderness journey.
Ownership of the Land
This next decade is one of ownership, particularly for God’s people, who He is calling to rise up in faith and take back the land, physically and spiritually. This is a time to buy and own land, buildings, houses and businesses. But do not operate in presumption, financial over extension and debt, that was the error of last season. We will obtain these things via faith, wise financial diligence, and hard work as well as supernatural provision.
The UK will continue to feel the bite of the recession. These disruptions will give opportunity for the church to take the initiative in many areas from providing for the needs of individuals as we respond to the heavenly call to take the land.
The change in season will be highlighted by the emerging of new bold worship/warfare songs.
For God will grant favour to those who have positioned themselves against injustice and demonic giants in the land.
Your children will run through a troop and leap over the wall. (2 Sam 22:30) A people movement is still rising and forming where saints operate fully in their gifts and callings, being impassioned to be in the place God wants them to be.
Intimacy and Holiness – Leading to Provision
A body of believers is being raised up who are radical in their hearts and are willing to die to self and to move in the power of God.
Total surrender will be required in this season. God is highlighting the parable of the ten virgins in Matt 26, and as in this passage, provision in this season will be linked to intimacy with God.
Watch and Pray
This is the Hebraic year 5770, which is the letter Ayin. Ayin is also the symbol of the eye.
God is releasing a greater ability to see. Watchmen are called to awaken and take their place upon the walls, raising a clear sound again in the nations. The watchmen are to scrutinize, identify and herald what is not right. This will help birth a radical prayer army, that deals with real issues.
Some results of watching and praying are:
1.Our spirit will overtake our weak flesh. (Matt 26:41)
2.We escape all that is about to happen, to stand before the Son of Man.”(Luke 21:36)
3.There will be an increase of 24/7 houses of prayer and worship.
As sight is being contended for, God wants our focus that we might say,
Now I see (understand), instead of, this is the way I see it. (Isa 55:9) “My ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
The main purpose of the shaking is now being revealed to us, (Heb 12:27-28) “that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken…”
The Kingdom of God is not just surviving but thriving during this clash of kingdoms. Yes, there will be more shaking in the UK, manifested through economic pressure and felt in many of our current national structures, in response to overwhelming needs within the nation.
Just as in the days of Joseph of Egypt, the famine will be felt over a protracted period of time. This is a global shaking.
As part of it, we can expect to see:
1.Homes and possessions being repossessed.
2.National companies going bankrupt; e.g. the post office and the student loans company will be shaken
3.Further economic and societal shaking in the financial, energy and public sectors which will continue to greatly impact the lives and finances of individuals.
4.A shaking of mortgages.
5.A shaking of governmental positions and political staff.
6.A shaking of governmental authority in the nation and a decentralisation out of London – where national structures fail, a door for local initiatives will open up with a fresh sense of community.
7.Closer links will be forged with Europe as shaking continues.
8.As financial systems ‘peak and trough’ new solutions will be sought.
9.The justice system will come under God’s scrutiny.
10.Shaking also continues as Believers leave behind old traditions that have made the Word of God to no effect.
This is a time for short and long term strategies, of new technologies, governmental strategies, and effective administration systems being birthed, alongside alternative banking systems, and new models of education.
Kingdom Rest verses Striving
Be careful and do not align with fear, anxiety, or intimidation in your life.
This is not a time of striving, but we are to be proactive in pressing to maintain momentum and mobilisation for kingdom advance. Luke 12:32, “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
Rom 14:17, “For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.”
We need to be connected with those that will be ‘force multipliers’ for the kingdom. As we transition, God is calling us to be careful of the covenant relationships we embrace. We need to be released from inappropriate covenants and to realign ourselves with divine kingdom relationships.
A Decade of Unprecedented Harvest
