In recent weeks there seems to have been an onslaught of demonic warfare released against many in the Body. This assult of warfare has managed to hit every aspect of a person's body, soul, and spirit. I believe this attack is coming from various sources of Jezebel, leviathan, and occultic spirits, which has been confirmed by many other main stream prophetic voices.
Along with experiencing warfare and witchcraft against my body, my sleep and dream life has been affected as well. I want to share a dream I had that was like a nightmare from the enemy. The enemy is releasing many intimidations and threats to stop the prophetic voices from moving forward. We must constantly be in rememberance God has not given us the spirit of fear but of love, power, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). As I laid in bed I could sense some type of encounter getting ready to happen, because I could feel a disturbance in the room. I finally fell asleep and went into this dream. In the dream it was night time, and there was this loud noise, vibration, and shaking coming from my hallway where my front door is. I first thought it was my cats making noise but determined it wasn't them, because they were terrified of the noise. Next, I looked under the blinds of the door and I saw this demon with the scream face. This demon was trying to make all these faces, threats, noise, and gestures to scare me. Instead of being afraid, I started making faces and gestures back at the demon, to show him I wasn't afraid and they needed to leave my door. The demon eventually left after it saw I was not affected by his intimidations.
I tend to usually have dreams like this when I'm getting ready to step into something new, or a greater measure of what I'm already doing. The enemy sends fear and intimidations to paralyze us from moving forward. We must remember fear is false evidence appearing real. If the Father is leading you into a new place in Him, know He has already or is equipping you for what's next. In times past, I would've been terrified in that dream. But I've come to realize the enemy's' threats and intimidations are often times empty. It's time to rise up in who you are in Christ, and release your roar in the enemy's face. Refuse to be intimidated!
I also feel led to share another dream about being discerning of those around you. We shouldn't become suspicious but it's important in this hour to be discerning of those wanting to get close to you, especially you prophetic voices. The enemy's desires to sabotage your progress.
In this dream, there was a girl or hairdresser who was doing my hair. She blowed dryed it, styled it, and put this special smoothing oil in my hair. When she was finished, she said I
owed her $120. I said that's outrageous, because the cost didn't fit the services I received. I was willing to pay and tried to come to a compromise of $80. She would not take my money and said forget it, and walked off in a huff.
I believe this is a warning dream to be careful who you allow to tough your covering (hair). I sense in the dream the girl was a misrepresentation of who she really was, and she was easily offended when I would not give her the amount of money she thought her services deserved. Be discerning of those around you. God is exposing hearts and motives of those around you, don't ignore it. The enemy is sending people your way to try and sabotage, hurt, and derail you. When the Holy Spirit highlights someone to you to be cautious of, pray and ask the Lord for the wisdom and strategy. Don't make a knee jerk reaction or assumption, the Lord will show you what to do. And pray for those who's
motives are wrong, that they would have an encounter with the Lord and come to repentance.
In sharing these two dreams, I pray it sheds light on what the enemy may be trying to bring in your life. I hope this also stirs you to keep pressing forward and don't allow the intimidation tactics of the enemy to stop you!
I recently received a prophetic word where part of the word said, "Stop looking to the past, you no longer have a past, the door has been shut on your past and the prophecies spoken over your life are coming full circle now." I believe this is a word for many of you in this season. One of the definitions of full circle is coming to a completion, In the midst of this season of mass transition, I see the Lord tying up loose ends in your life, enabling you to move into the next level He has for you. 2017 has been one big year of stretching, shaking, and transition, but the Lord is shifting His people into a new season individually and as a Church. In order to step into the new you have to let go of the past. Isaiah 43:18-19 says, "Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past. See I'm doing a new thing. Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?"
We're stepping into a new era as a Church. In order to do that it requires a shift in the way we think, and have operated in the past whether good or bad. What has been spoken over your life in past seasons is coming into fulfillment now. The Father is calling His children up to a higher level of functioning. Isaiah 55:8-9 says, "My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts says the Lord. And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts."
The Father is bringing circumstances and promises full circle. He's dealing with the issues of our heart so nothing can hinder or trip us up in the next season to come. Many times we step into new seasons with open doors from past seasons, that give the enemy access to come in the back door. I believe there is reconciliation coming where there has been hurt and division. Someone who hurt me four years ago recently came out of the blue and asked for forgiveness. I had forgiven them and moved on for some time, but I believe that's a powerful gesture and indication of what God is bringing into your life. In order to come full circle and step into the new, we have to let go of offense and forgive one another.(Matt 5:23-24).
I prophesy that which has been spoken over you, your family, region, nation, etc is coming full circle now in Jesus. I break the assignments of delay and sabotage hindering the fulfillment of God's promises spoken over your life. It's time to come full circle, and step into the new. Many in this season are being upgraded, positioned, newly mantled, and fresh anointing being poured out for next level assignments.
We're living in a era where the veil between heaven and earth is extremely thin, even transparent at times.The Father longs to reveal heaven on earth. The enemy has made the supernatural into something spooky, and we've bought in the lie. In reality, the supernatural to the believer should be like breathing, natural. We're stepping into a time of the book of Acts and beyond. Throughout the Bible there were numerous instances where the people interacted with angels, miracles occurred, dreams and visions, many unexplained supernatural experiences took place.
To access the supernatural, you'll have to lay down your logic. Logic will never be able to fully comprehend the supernatural, but our spiritman does. 1 Corinthians 2:14 says, "The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit." It's time to be led by the Spirit and not our minds. When we allow ourselves to be led by our reasoning, we miss heaven's clues and invitation to peek in on the other side. It's imperative to come as little children. Jesus said in Matthew 18:3-4, "Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of God." What the Father is getting ready to reveal, we won't be able to grasp or walk in it if we don't posses the faith of a child. A child never loses their wonder and amazement.It will take the wonder of a child to begin to open your spiritual eyes to see what you've never seen before.
The other day I was washing dishes. I happened to look down in my left hand. To my surprise I saw a gold nugget. See lately, I've begun to see with my seer eyes like never before. A seer is someone who God communicates to through dreams, visions, pictures, feelings, etc. There are different levels of seeing. On the first level, you sense certain impressions or nudges. For example, I may not always see angels, but I just have a knowing they're there. On the second level, you may start to see pictures inside your mind. That would be considered a closed vision. The third level would be the actual seeing and manifestation of the spirit realm before your eyes.
Don't discount the little impressions the Lord shows you at first. As you learn to believe and step out in faith, the Lord will begin to reveal more to you. We have all been given a measure of faith (Romans 12:3) It's up to us to pursue after more to stretch our faith for more. The Father rewards those who diligently seek after him (Hebrews 11:6). It's important to remember not to seek the Lord just for encounters, but seek Him for who He is. When you seek after Him with a pure heart, He reveals His secrets to those He trust.
We are living in a time where the seers are arising, and being called forth to reveal what heaven is saying. When I saw that gold nugget in my hand, it made me think of the verse Matt 13:44, "The Kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field." I believe the Father revealed that nugget as bread crumb to encourage me to follow the trail to more. The Father is leaving his nuggets of heaven for you to follow where you've never gone before. Will you follow?
