In the last few days there has been such a stirring in my spirit, I can't shake it. This stirring is for the new the Lord is bringing forth and unfolding in this hour. The momentum is building. As I was ministering recently, the Lord began to speak prophetically through me this was a time of closing out one chapter to start another. Many in the Body are having a hard time moving forward because some of the prophetic promises spoken have expired, or for whatever reason the fullness of some prophetic words were not fully manifest. The promises of God in His word never expire, but certain prophetic words are time sensitive or have a window of time to be fulfilled in. It's time to move forward.
God is working everything together for our good, according to His purposes. Song of Solomon 2:10-11 declares, "Arise, my dearest. Hurry, my darling. Come away with me! I have come as you have asked to draw you to my heart and lead you out. For now is the time, my beautiful one.11 The season has changed, the bondage of your barren winter has ended, and the season of hiding is over and gone. The rains have soaked the earth." Things have been shifting and transition for while. The verse numbers in this passage are prophetic, 10 prophetically means to set in order, and 11 is the number of transition. Over the past few days I keep seeing number combinations such as 111, 222 333, 444, 555. This is prophetically speaking that the Lord is setting order and bringing alignment into your life, and in the things of the spirit.
Anytime something new begins, something must die. Recently my oldest daughter had a dream about me relevant to what is happening in this season. In the dream she fell asleep and dreamed I was drinking tea. After I drank the tea, my stomach started to hurt and then I died. In the dream she woke up and realized I was ok, and doing things around the house. Tea comes from leaves which represents healing/detox. Our stomach/belly represents our core, our heart, and the seat of our emotions. Revelation 22:2 says, "The river was flowing in the middle of the street of the city, and on either side of the river was the Tree of Life, with its twelve kinds of ripe fruit according to each month of the year. The leaves of the Tree of Life are for the healing of the nations." As we receive healing, we can now become leaves that bring healing to the nations. My death in the dream was a spiritual death of dying to self, so the Lord can birth something new. Many times when we desire for the Lord to do a new thing, there's dying to self or a coming to the end of ourselves so the new can be born. Isaiah 43:18-19 is one of the main scriptures for the hour, because there is an ending of an era to begin a new one. It says, "Do not [earnestly] remember the former things; neither consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it?" To fully receive and walk in what we are hungering for we have to stop looking back, and run forward will all that we have.
In this time of the Lord closing one chapter and beginning another, the momentum is building. As the momentum is building it's causing an expansion and great push to happen in your life. What you've been feeling is growing pains! Momentum can be defined as the strength or force that allows something to continue or grow stronger, or faster as time passes. This is an Isaiah 54:2-3 moment,"Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes,3 For you will spread abroad to the right hand and to the left." In the stretching and lengthening there will be disruption. The ground or the foundation that once held will not do. So as you expand there will be an upheaval of the ground around. Don't be distracted by the dust kicking up, or the things being unearthed. Keep pressing forward because this is your season of enlargement.
The momentum is causing a stretching and an acceleration in your life. Just as an airplane accelerates and ascends, there is an altitude and breathing adjustment that must occur to function at a new altitude. What you're experiencing is a horizontal and vertical expansion as the Lord is enlarging your capacity. Just breathe. There is grace to adjust to your new normal. The momentum of the Lord is launching and catapulting you into the greater.
