As many of you know we are in very significant and prophetic times. If we’re not careful we’ll miss or misinterpret what God is doing if we look at what is happening in the natural, and not with spiritual eyes. In the middle of September the Lord began to speak to me about October. Since July the Lord has been speaking to me about the prophetic numbers each month represents. July the seventh month representing a completion and the opening of the new, and this is where we began to see a shift in the corona pandemic. August the eighth month representing new beginnings, and the winds of God literally began to manifest in the weather confirming the shift. August represented a breaking forth of the waters so that the things of God can begin to come forth as we stepped into September. September the 9th month representing the fullness of God, and the birthing of many “babies” that the people of God have been carrying in their spiritual wombs.
At the beginning of 2020 the Lord spoke me and declared, “Reset,” I saw the Lord push a huge red button that had reset written on it. To reset means to fix in a new a different way. We have been in a supernatural divine reset. In order for us to step into the new and the new era of the Church, the Lord had to reset us back to original design. As I was praying into October the tenth month, the Lord said, “As we step into October we’re stepping into divine order.” The number ten prophetically represent order, unity, testing, and completion. For most of the year we have been in what seems like chaos. In the midst
of the chaos the Lord is using it to realign nations, leaders, the Church, relationships, and our personal lives. We have been in a great time of testing. The Lord has used the testing to expose hearts, hearts, motives, and burn away what’s not of God. Those who have stood the testing are coming out carrying a greater measure of glory.
As you step through the door of October, you’re going to begin to see a shift and reordering in your life that is bringing order to your chaos. It may seem like there is a lot of chaos in our nation but God has started the order process with the death of Justice Ginsberg. An era of justice has come to an end to begin a new era of justice. The Justice of the Lord. We will see abortion overturned in our lifetime. I know many people have a hard time with President Trump, especially believers because of his personality and things he says. God is using him in this time to set order and deal with demonic powers and principalities. We have to look beyond what we see in the natural and what are political affiliation is, and see that we are in a great spiritual battle over our nation. It’s not about political party, or the man, it’s about partnering with Heaven. Sometimes Heaven will use the most unlikely to bring about change. 1 Corinthians 1:27 declares, “But God choose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.” We have to get out of our head and emotions and get into the Spirit and the heart of God. It may seem messy right now but God is in control. He says to be still and know that I’m God (Psalm 46:10). This is a season and hour of exposure and God’s justice. He is allowing and exposing the spirit of racism, the political spirit, exposing leaders in the Church, etc. What seems like chaos God is using it to set order and alignment.
The Decade of The Mouth & 5781
As we stepped into 2020, we stepped into the Hebrew year and decade of the mouth, pey. Because of that there is a special grace and empowerment upon the words we are speaking and releasing on both sides. We are in a war of words. We’re going to see this play out throughout this decade. The night Justice Ginsberg passed away I had a short dream. In the dream I was in my house and I saw an impending storm. As I prayed into the meaning of the dream, the Lord show me the enemy would love to bring storm after storm. What we don’t realize is, we are empowering these storms by our words. We are in a war of words. This was very evident by the most recent presidential debate. This is a reflection of what is going on in the spirit. The enemy is trying to find loopholes in time and us to try and accelerate the end time events. Daniel 7:25 says, “He will speak words against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Most High, and He will intend to change the times and the law.” Be mindful of what and who you’re partnering with. Use discernment and wisdom, see beyond into the spirit and motives.
In the Hebrew year 5781, another concept that is important to discuss is oneness. The one representing oneness with God and unity with each other. Since there is a focus on unity and oneness the enemy is going to do everything he can to fight that. The Lord is wanting us to come in alignment and oneness with His plans for our lives and our nation. I was watching a recent service where Pastor Kimberly Owen of Fresh Start Church was praying over pastors. As she was praying and prophesying over the pastors, I began to see the Lord release new keys and blueprints. Last season’s and last decade’s keys and plans won’t do. Everything has shifted! As we come into order and alignment with God’s plans for our lives, churches, and our nations the Lord is releasing new keys of authority and access. Where there has been great resistance God is now authorizing Kingdom advancement. Another theme of 5781 is the Ox. The Ox represents the apostolic anointing. We have stepped into a time of rebuilding the ruins and advancing and establishing the Kingdom of God.
Prophetic Voices Come Out of The Cave & Take The Muzzle Off
As you know 202o has been the year of the mouth, and we have stepped into the decade of the mouth. I believe many prophetic voices have succumbed to the fear and have isolated themselves in a cave. They have allowed themselves to be muzzled. The face masks we are supposed to wear are a prophetic picture of what the enemy is trying to do to us. It reminds me of the story of Elijah and Jezebel in 1 Kings 19. After Elijah’s greatest victory, he let Jezebel’s witchcraft laced letter invoke fear in his heart. instead of standing up to Jezebel like he did the prophets of Baal, he ran into a cave in fear wanting to die. The Lord encounters him in the cave in 1 Kings 19:11-13, “ “So He said, “Go out and stand on the mountain before the LORD.” And behold, the LORD was passing by, and a great and powerful wind was tearing out the mountains and breaking the rocks in pieces before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind. And after the wind, [there was] an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake, [there was] a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire, [there was] the sound of a gentle blowing. When Elijah heard the sound, he wrapped his face in his mantle (cloak) and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. And behold, a voice came to him and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?””
In that encounter Elijah was expecting God to move in the same ways he had know God to move. But God was not found in the wind, earth, or fire. God encountered Elijah in a new way, in His still small voice. God is coming and revealing Himself in a new way, but many are missing Him because they expect the breakthrough to come in familiar ways. Song of Songs 2:13 TPT declares,“Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth.” God is doing a new thing and speaking in new ways. Don’t miss it.
When Elijah hid in the cave he lost his vision and couldn’t hear the voice of God because, he was surrounded by fear and his thoughts. Elijah came out of the cave to position himself to hear the voice of the Lord. When he positioned himself to hear, it says, “behold the voice of the Lord came.” The voice of the Lord released the light of the Lord, restoring his vision. Elijah’s vision had grown dim in the cave. He lost sight of his vision and mission. That’s why the Lord asked him, “What are you doing here Elijah?” We need the prophetic voice of the Lord more than ever! His voice releases vision. As the enemy has tried to muzzle our mouths physically and spiritually, we must not bow to the intimidation and jezebelic warfare. As the Lord asked Elijah I ask you, “What are you doing in the cave?” It’s time to be bold and refuse to be muzzled. If you’ve noticed not many are prophesying about 20201 as they did for 2020. Where are the prophetic voices? The earth needs what you carry for such a time as this!
