Over the past couple of months I began to feel a real shift coming to the body of Christ. The Lord began to speak me to a new day is dawning in the Body. This year has been a year of transition from the old to the new. At the beginning of the year I had prophesied I saw angels handing out new orders and blueprints. The days of doing normal church is over. The Lord is saying, "Forget the former things, behold I am doing a new thing do you not perceive it" (Isa 43-:18-19). To perceive it means to become aware of it. The functions and systems are outdated and changing. The previous mindsets and church structures aren't able to contain what God is releasing. In our attempt to be unreligious, we've become religious. The face of the church is changing. We are called to be a prophetic people. As prophetic people we must be those who function in the Issachar anointing, being able to discern the times and seasons of the Lord.
I saw the Lord releasing a new wineskin, With a new wineskin, comes the new wine or Spirit of the Lord. Mark 2.22 says, "And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the wine would burst the wineskins, and the wine and the skins would both be lost. New wine calls for new wineskins." I see epicenters of glory rising up. It will no longer be about going to a certain church. People will come where the glory is manifesting. There will no longer be an order of service, but the Lord will order our gatherings. We will start coming together to pray and seek the Father until he manifest. The house of God will return back to the house of prayer. Matthew 21:13 declares, "My house will be called a house of prayer." We will learn how to come together in unity as the legislative body of Christ, and shift the nations from our knees. Sermons will no longer be as sermons have been, whoever has the word of the Lord will be the "sermon." Supernatural encounters and angelic visitations are on the rise. I have personally started to experience this. The Lord never intended for His body to be within the walls of a building. We carry the Kingdom of God is within us. Realms of glory are being and getting ready to be unleashed. It time to break out of religion and start living and moving in the Kingdom of God. The only thing seperating heaven invading is us. We are a conduit of the Kingdom and glory flowing threw us. This past week as I was beginning to wake, I saw a vision of the horizon and the sun dawning over it. A new day is dawning for the Body of Christ. New means the old systems, mentalities, and functions are fading away, and the new blueprints and structures of Heaven are being initiated in the earth. Will you partner with heaven?

Back in February I had a dream where the Lord showed me hidden alliances were being revealed in the Body Christ. The Lord has brought it back to mind in the past couple weeks, and felt led to unpack it more.
In the dream I was standing outside of this church, and I was looking at the sky. In the sky was this dark looking storm cloud, but it wasn't you're normal looking storm cloud. It was a demonic storm cloud, that represented a demonic principality. I kept looking at the cloud to try and figure out it's movements, but I was having a hard time discerning the cloud. It was the darkest black I'd ever seen. I finally decided to head inside the church and find my seat for service.
As I began to walk in the sanctuary to my seat, certain people I passed in the crowd began to manifest demonically in their faces. There were those as I passed them their face warped into a demonic spirit to give me a look of intimidation. I began to give them a stern look back as to show I was not intimidated by their demonic looks, but at the same time wondering what was going on. And then it hit me, there were hidden alliances hidden within the church body. As I got to my seat I came in contact with one of the ring leaders. I pointed my finger in their face and told them, "I know what you're doing, and you better stop it right now." I went on to notify and call a prophet friend of mine who was on the way, to be ready and be aware of what they were walking into when they got to church.
I believe this is a word for the Body of Christ as a whole. There are demonic principalities in regions that are influencing those who have offense in their hearts, and want to come against the move of God and prophetic voices in this hour. Some are knowingly and unknowingly partnering with this principality. I believe many have become discontent, and have allowed their offenses, jealousy, and pride to open the door for the enemy to use them.
I believe one of the main principalities operating in this dream is the Jezebel and religious spirit . The prophetic voice is rising in the hour and Jezebel would like nothing more than to shut it down. There are secret meetings being held behind closed doors, scheming ways to stop move of God in churches and regions. There's an agenda to intimidate, silence, and pervert the prophetic voice. These meetings plan how they can character assassinate the prophetic voices around them. The Lord says in Deuteronomy 30:1, "What sorrow awaits my rebellious children," says the LORD. "You make plans that are contrary to mine. You make alliances not directed by my Spirit, thus piling up your sins." Remember rebellion opens the door to witchcraft. Many use flattery towards their leadership, but their hearts are in rebellion. There's urgency needed in this hour to discern and call out what is operating in our churches opposing the move of God. We must stop being intimidated by Jezebel's threats and religion's false agenda. The Father is exposing the hearts of man and their hidden agendas. Many have Jesus on their lips, but their hearts are far from the Lord. There are ring leaders recruiting innocent and naive people by finding a common offense, or flattery is used to draw those who are vulnerable.
If you find yourself in a hidden alliance coming against the move of God and leadership in your church, repent and get your heart right.
Go to your leaders and repent, and ask for forgiveness. The Father is exposing the hearts of those who have impure motives and evil intent in their hearts.
Prophets do not be intimidated by Jezebel, religion, and the witchcraft they release. Call out and expose that which is not of the Lord. I believe we're in a hour where the Lord is saying, "Choose this day, whom will you serve.You're either for me says the Lord or against me. Which side will you choose? What has been in secret, I'm revealing to my prophets to expose and sound the alarm. I will not tolerate secrets spoken in the shadows. I will not bless those who scheme and plot against me. I am exposing hearts and evil intent"
I had a warning dream earlier this week, where the Lord was showing me a spirit of sabotage was being set up by the enemy to derail and wound. The definition of sabotage is an act or process to deliberately hamper or hurt (merriam-webster.com).
I was driving at night, and getting ready to come around this curve in the road. I remembered earlier in the dream there was this huge type of truck, the one that transport cars, parked on the curve for some reason. As I was getting ready to avoid it as I came on the turn, I couldn't turn the wheel. Everything in the car went black. I veered toward the truck and I crashed. I was able to get out the car, there was glass everywhere. I was cut up, had bruises, and my whole right side was injured and in pain. While the police came to get statements from the witnesses, I was sitting on the front lawn of this house. The owner of the house had given his statement and was on the way back to his house. As He was walking, he kept starring at me. At the same time, I saw in the spirit in the dream he had parked the truck in the corner the day before. And then I was taken to the doctor with my husband to get checked out and attended to my injuries. I had to get X-rays on my right hand/wrist to see if it has fractured.
The interesting thing about this dream is the night before I dreamed about flying. To fly in a plane while dreaming, tends to mean you are going higher in the realm of the spirit and the revelatory realm. At first I was a little shaken from this warning dream, because it was so real, vivid, and I could feel everything, I believe many of you in this season have been flying high in the things of the spirit, and accelerating on the fast track (road) of God. The enemy is trying to plant obstacles and stumbling blocks to hinder those who've been moving forward in this season.
A car tends to represent your life, or personal ministry/calling. In the dream I was unable to avoid the planted truck because my car had been sabotaged. We don't have to fear when the Lord gives us dreams like this, and exposes the intent of the enemy. Amos 3:7 says,“For the Lord GOD does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets." The Lord reveals to unfoil the plans of the enemy, and give strategy when it comes so we're not taken by surprise. I believe in this dream the transport truck represented some type of religious system/ministry trying to come against me. I believe as a whole the prophetic voices that rising are being targeted by the enemy to derail them. For you, that truck might represent personal issues or relationships that have been planted to sabotage you.
In the dream I was injured on the right side of my body. The right side can represent the anointing and authority you carry, your place of strength. I believe the enemy is trying to deal blows to weaken our anointing and authority. John 10:10 tells us the enemy wants to kill, steal, and destroy. Great insight in this dream is to also slow down, and pay attention so you don't miss seeing traps set up by the enemy. At times we can be going so fast, we can cause ourselves to get out of control and wreck. I want to encourage you to be diligent and watchful, but not suspicious. Even if you end up "wrecking" because of a sabotage planted by the enemy, you're not going to be taken out. It's impossible to never come out unscathed when you're in the midst of battle. But if you get injured, allow the Lord and his ministering angels attend to your wounds and bring healing.
And let's pray for those who wish to do us harm. At every point of promotion there will be some type of Judas, King Saul, or Jezebel to face. A lot of times people don't realize but they give the enemy an open door for him to use them. Unfortunately, there are those who maliciously plan and try and sabotage those around them. I believe in this hour jealousy and the religious spirit are at an all time high. These spirits come to sabotage and stop what the Lord is doing. You may get a little hindered at times, but nothing can stop what the Lord has put in motion. It's important to be wise, watchful, and diligent in prayer. Colossians 4:2 says, "Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving." Keep pressing forward in the things, and if there is a situation of sabotage that arises the Lord will help you to navigate through. When we are weak or the enemy catches us off guard, His power is made perfect in our weakness. Isaiah 41:10, "Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am you God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my victorious right hand." No matter what happens, there's no safer place than being in the center of His will for your life.
