The past two months have been a time of intense warfare. There have been many winds of opposition blowing in all different directions. In my experience I’ve learned when the heat gets turned up, breakthrough is near. The enemy will always overplay his hand and onslaught believers, right before deliverance takes place. A scripture that keeps coming to mind in this season is Daniel 7:25, “He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.” The word in the Hebrew for wear out is bela. It means to weary, afflict, and harass constantly especially in the sense of coming against the mental state. How many of you know that to be true in this intense season of warfare and the pandemic. There has been a real war against the mind in this season. Fear is one of the things the enemy has used to afflict the minds of people. There has been a warfare for peace of mind. We must allow the peace of God to govern and rule us (Colossians 3:15). The peace of God is a weapon of warfare. It’s something that we must truly hold on to and learn how to use in the years to come. His peace will anchor you in the middle of the storm. Perfect peace isn’t the absence of the storm, it’s maintaining wholeness and confidence in the midst. Jesus gave us the example of that when he was sleeping on the boat in the middle of a fierce storm (Mark 4). Peace ruled in Him so greatly that He was not even bothered by the storm raging around Him. We too can have that kind of peace. Jesus never allowed the storm to get inside of Him. What governs and rules you internally will manifest and govern the external.
Let’s look at the second half of Daniel 7:25 it says, “And shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.” This is a highly prophetic time and moment upon the earth. Like this scripture says, the enemy has tried to accelerate things upon the earth and mess with the timing of God. We must rise up, take a hold, and take back what the enemy has tried to distort. We must remember that God holds our times and seasons in our hands. Where the enemy has tried to delay and get the saints to God off of God’s timing, We must remember to not allow the natural seasons to dictate our spiritual seasons. We’re coming into a season where God is redeeming the time. To redeem means to take possession of. As you partner with God in this season, there is a redeeming of time and the promises of God. God can do in a moment what could take a lifetime. Be encouraged, there’s a promise for you in this season.
During the last week of July, I had a dream on 7/27/20. In the first part of the dream I was walking around the streets of New York City, and I went into this nurses’ clinic. In the clinic I was invisible. They could not see me, but as I watched them they were treating Covid patients. There were other nurses that were messing with vials and fluids. I saw them inaccurately documenting on paperwork their findings to be turned in. The scene switched and I was sitting in my car looking out the front window and I began to see a storm dissipate. As the storm moved on, a huge rainbow appeared in the sky.
As I prayed into the interpretation of this dream. I began to sense more exposure was coming to the things that were hidden, and going on behind the scenes concerning Covid. There is a reality of the virus, but there are hidden agendas that will be exposed in the months to come. The same day I had this dream and posted it, it happened to be the same day the Frontline doctors came forward releasing exposure and information about hydroxychloroquine. We need to pray for the Spirit of Truth to be released to reveal what’s been hidden. There is more to come.
I believe the storm dissipating in the dream, is things with the pandemic beginning to move on and move out. As we stepped into August I felt a shift and there seems to be a lot of prophetic buzz about this month. For August I keep hearing the gusts of August are shifting the storm and releasing the promises of God. Gusts can be defined as a sudden brief, burst of wind, a sudden acceleration of speed. Another definition that caught my attention concerning gusts, was that it also refers to taste. Where many have had a bitter taste in their mouths, I prophesy sudden gusts of God’s goodness is getting ready to hit your life. “You will taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalm 34:8).
Prophetically rainbows represent the promise of God.
I want to encourage you that this “storm” pandemic has an expiration date. This storm will not be forever. As the rainbow signifies God’s promises, the promises of God are yes and amen over this nation and over your life. God has not changed His mind and He is not done with America. Just as God kept Noah and his family in the midst of the storm and flood He is keeping this nation. Everything that can be shaken is being shaken. God is wanting us to come up higher, He is giving us access. He is a strongtower that we can run into and be safe. I believe we’re going to see an increase of rainbows upon the earth that will
flood social media and the mainstream media. Let it be a confirmation of this word, and a reminder of His
promises to you and this nation.
“I have placed my rainbow among the clouds, and it will be a sign of my loving covenant between me and the earth.”
Genesis 9:13 TPT
