There’s a finishing grace being released right now to help close out 2019 well, and step into 2020 anew. As I began to ask the Lord more about that, He began to tell me there is grace to breakthrough where many have felt stuck, immobilized, and unable to finish what the Lord had put on their hearts for 2019. There was a wave of warfare that was released in the last quarter of the year to stop you. But the Lord is saying, “Breakthrough is here. I am breaking you out, and through.” Isaiah 61:7 TPT declares, “Because you received a double dose of shame and dishonor, you will inherit a double portion of endless joy and everlasting bliss.” There was a 1-2 punch the enemy tried to take you out with, but the Lord is releasing His 1-2 counter punch over your life.
I had recent dream depicting this. In the dream I was with some people in a room, and suddenly I noticed there were two yellow jacket wasps flying around the room. Prophetically wasps represent a demonic attack meant to sting and hurt you. Sometimes this can be represented through people or words. In the natural yellow jacket wasps are more aggressive than other wasps and other stinging insects. Unlike other bees or wasps, yellow jackets don’t loose their stinger. They can attack and sting provoked or unprovoked. Yellow jackets aggressively protect what’s theirs. They can kill people by number of stings causing toxic effects and those allergic to them. To dig a little a deeper prophetically, the colors of the yellow jacket are yellow and black. Yellow can represent fear, and black the demonic. John 10:10 says, “The thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy.” This was the agenda of the attack sent against you in this last quarter, to instill fear and kill what God is doing in your life. But it didn’t work. In the dream I was able to kill both wasps. What the enemy sent to hurt you and sting you with, it’s not going to work! Take out the wasps!
Many prophetic voices in this season are calling it and prophesying it the double double. To see the double manifest you must grab a hold of the word of God. It’s the word of God that carries the power to break you through and out. The word is living and active. For the word to become active in our lives we have to partner with the word. As we are stepping into 2020, many of the prophets have been declaring 2 Chronicles 20:20. It says, “So they rose early in the morning and went and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established, believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.” In the Hebrew Tekoa means stockade, a fence, a barrier. Prophetically many of you are in the wildness of Tekoa. There is a fence or barrier that has been standing in the way of walking in victory and breakthrough. As the Israelites stood in Tekoa, King Jehoshaphat reminded the people of what the prophet had said before, “You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord who is with you ( 2 Chronicles 2:17).
In order for the Israelites to see the Wilderness of Tekoa be removed before them they had to: 1. Believe in the Lord. Their belief or trust would cause them to be established. Established in the Hebrew is aman meaning made firm, secure, verified, lasting. When you trust in the Lord he will cause you to become a pillar, one that is immovable and not easily overcome. When God establishes you, it will dethrone in your life what’s not of the Lord. 2. Believe His prophets. More than ever its going to be important to discern the prophetic voices you allow to speak into your life. It will determine your level of success. The Lord is adding weight to the voices of the prophets as we step into a new era in 2020. In the days to come it will be vitally important to head the word of the true prophets, especially when they are prophesying similar words. When prophets prophesy similar words, its because Heaven is trying to release something, and trying to get the attention of the people. In the scripture above the king said if you believe the prophets it will cause you to succeed. Succeed is the Hebrew word tsalach meaning to progress, prosper, and advance. When you receive the prophet and the word, you receive the prophet’s reward (Matthew 10:41). A part of the prophet’s reward is the spirit of breakthrough. Breakthrough is released when we embrace the word.
What will cause you to advance in this hour is not your agenda, strength, or skills. It will be the word of God that will cause you to advance, prosper, and succeed. We see this time and time again throughout the Bible when the people heeded the word of the Lord. I declare and decree your Wilderness of Tekoa is being removed. The barrier and fence that has risen up and stood before you is coming down low as you advance with the word of the Lord. The word is going to cause you to advance and breakthrough into 2020!
