Prophetic Word: Old Sickles Will Not Harvest This New Wheat - ANNA AQUINO CHARISMA NEWS

The harvest and wheat fields are commonly referred to in the Bible as the mission field. (Pixabay/12019)

Prophetic Word: Old Sickles Will Not Harvest This New Wheat

Somewhere in the place between asleep and just barely getting there, I had a vision a few nights ago, and I felt I needed to share it. I saw myself in a giant wheat field. The grain was thick on the stalks, almost to the point of them beginning to droop. I walked through them, feeling them rush past my hands. I could see in the distance a few people using a sickle to cut the wheat. They were hard at work and didn't even notice me. Then suddenly I found myself in what seemed to be a clearing, but it wasn't supposed to be one. I could see that a huge section of the wheat had been crushed down leaving a large portion pushed down. As I looked around the field again I could see that many of these sections were around the field. I knelt down to look at the wheat, and the heads were just as bountiful as the ones whose stalks were not broken. I looked up at one of the harvesters and instinctively I knew that the sickle wouldn't harvest this wheat. I knew that to harvest these portions of the field were going to take extra special care. These portions needed new methods.
As I began to pray about this vision it's meaning to me seemed very clear. The harvest and wheat fields are commonly referred to in the Bible as the mission field. The stalks of wheat were the souls of people. (Luke 10:2 and Matt. 9:37). What I believe God was saying is that the harvest is there. I believe the church is getting ready to experiences one of the biggest harvests we've seen in a modern age. However, the methods we have always used may not work for everyone. Some of stalks have been beaten down and trodden. Some of them are just as ripe as the others but are going to need some extra care to harvest. As leaders in the church, we can't just assume that methods we've always used for evangelism are the ways we always have to use. We must seek God for how to reach those sections of the field. We must remember that these are people just lying in the field and needing someone to help them up.
May we begin to seek God for those new methods. May we not assume that new wine will go into old wineskins. May we hear from heaven as to how to reach the lost and do what needs to be done. The harvest is plentiful, may we get up from our padded pews and be one of the laborers.

Ben Lim: "The Master's Call: Heed His Voice and Be Restored!" - THE ELIJAH LIST

Ben Lim: "The Master's Call: Heed His Voice and Be Restored!"

THE ELIJAH LIST, Sep 3, 2017
Steve ShultzFrom the desk of Steve Shultz:
The Master is "calling" us in many ways and that includes the great harvest at hand. I sure enjoyed reading this article by Ben Lim, who is a Millennial Pastor from the Los Angeles area. He sure has wisdom beyond his years!
This now prophetic word will really strengthen many of you dealing with brokenness even now:
The Lord is repairing what was broken. The Lord is restoring your relationships. The Lord is healing the wounded areas of broken trust and dishonor and He is restoring the areas of discord and division. The Lord is bringing the Body back together. Where the enemy tried to divide you and divide the Body, there is an intense restoration that is coming. The Lord is mending the nets! He is the repairer of the breach and the restorer of the broken.
Now that's a word! Be encouraged in the restoration at hand! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

I am sensing an unusual anointing of breakthrough and harvest. What we must do is acknowledge the Master, which means acknowledge and heed His voice and His call. It is intimacy with Him that will bring the harvest, not our hard works and ministerial efforts. We can work all day and night but still be working and toiling in vain.
So much of our lives are filled with vanity! The Lord is wanting to turn around your life and all of your situations, even in one night and one moment. All of life's striving, stresses, and worries will cease from one simple word from our Master. When He speaks, we must listen. When He speaks, we must obey. He is the Master and we are His servants. He is the Potter and we are the clay. We must be conduits of obedience, to bring forth His glory here on the earth. 
"It's time for the friends of God to come together, despite the differences and putting the pasts behind."
You may have been working hard all night. You may have been crying out to the Lord! You may be feeling weary, tired and depleted, but the Word of the Lord will strengthen you and create unusual circumstances and supernatural results! The Holy Spirit is about to strengthen you and build you up!
"When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, 'Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.'
Simon answered, 'Master, we've worked hard all night and haven't caught anything. But because You say so, I will let down the nets.' When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink." 
(Luke 5:4-7 NIV)
The Partners Are Coming
The Bible says that they caught such a large number of fish, that their nets began to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them (Luke 5:6-7). When the harvest breaks out, who gets what will be the least of our concerns. The back-biting, the bitterness, the division, and the past histories will all be vanished. When we truly see the glory of the Lord manifest and multiply in our midst, all such childish things will fade away. The reason why this division, back-biting, gossip, slander, and all such things of the flesh exist is because we've become distracted, disillusioned, or discouraged by the lack of harvest and by the tiredness of the night.
Don't let the night defeat you. Don't let the night destroy you. Don't let the night come in between you and the things that matter most. Don't let the unknown, the mystery, and the areas of darkness come in between you and the move of God. The night is fading! (Photo via Unsplash)
Here in the Waiting
Sometimes the periods of waiting can make us a captive of assumptions, wounding and confusion. These periods of waiting many times are tests that many cannot take. This nighttime period literally drives people crazy, causing them to lose their minds and sanity. This nighttime of darkness tests them with feelings of loneliness and questioning, which many times leave a person wounded and more of a mess than a message of hope. 
ElijahList Prophetic Resources
However, the dark night of your soul shall soon pass and the morning light shall dawn! This nighttime season will pass and the new mercies of God will arise! If you've been waiting in the dark, get ready to start flying anew with wings like eagles. If you've been feeling stuck in chaos, then get ready for God to speak forth light, vision and order. If you've been feeling divided and separated from the Lord and His people, then get ready for a move of unity to reunite you.
Don't let offense and the root of bitterness harbor within you. God will finish what He has started. Don't let the waiting cause you to stumble and become angry and bitter towards God. Keep a healthy and holy perspective. Keep in prayer and let the Lord transform your mind and your thoughts.
Partakers of the Harvest
Jesus is looking for friends. God is looking for servants who will steward His amazing grace. The Lord is looking for partners who will partake in these great, grand and glorious End Times events. Who will partake of this? Who will partake of His harvest? There will be such a large number of fish that the nets will break until and unless we call out for help! The NLT version says, "A shout for help brought their partners ..." (Luke 5:7)
"When He speaks, we must obey. He is the Master and we are His servants. He is the Potter and we are the clay."
Shout out for help! Help will come if we call for it! It's time for the partners to come! Don't let the pride and anger of the night leave you wounded! Call your partners! Call the partners! There must be a partnership to gain the whole harvest. There must be a partnership, a linking-of-arms, and a uniting in the spirit for all of the resources to be obtained. We cannot do it alone! Otherwise, our division, pride, and malice might cause us to miss out on His fullness! Has your pride caused you to miss out on the fullness? Has your offense caused you to choose one side of God and reject the other? Have you been rejecting His prophets? Have you been rejecting the members of His Body?
It's time to signal our partners again! It's time for the friends of God to come together, despite our differences, and putting the past behind. It's time for a holy recompense. Expect a holy restoration of relationships. Expect a restoration of partnerships! Expect new and more partnerships!
Restoring Breaches and Relationships
As I was in prayer on a recent morning, the Lord caught me up in a vision. The Lord began showing me nets that were broken. The nets were broken in many places. However, the Lord began mending the nets and fixing the knots and ropes of the net. The Lord was mending the nets and strengthening the ties and the bonds and covenants in the spirit.
Where the nets have been broken, the Lord is mending. The Lord is repairing what was broken. The Lord is restoring your relationships. The Lord is healing the wounded areas of broken trust and dishonor and He is restoring the areas of discord and division. The Lord is bringing the Body back together. Where the enemy tried to divide you and divide the Body, there is an intense restoration that is coming. The Lord is mending the nets! He is the repairer of the breach and the restorer of the broken.
Ask yourself, has there been a relationship that's been broken? Has there been a tear, a wear, a breaking in the spirit with another? Has the spirit of offense wounded you and kept you away from the wholeness of God?
Don't let your pride get in the way. Heed the voice of the Master and be healed in your soul. Don't let the night dissuade you away from your true purpose in the Lord. Let the Master set you free! As Jesus said, "Put out into deep water and let down the nets for a catch."

It's time for you to go deep once again. It's time for you to put yourself out, to be brave, courageous and vulnerable, and to let down your nets! Let down your guards! Let down your pride! Let down your crowns! Lay it all down. It takes courage to gain the harvest. It takes hope to gain the harvest. Be encouraged! The harvest is ripe and ready. All you must do, is heed the voice of the Master! What is He telling you to do today, right here and right now? (Photo via Unsplash)
"Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;
You shall cry, and He will say, 'Here I am.'
If you take away the yoke from your midst,
The pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness,
"If you extend your soul to the hungry
And satisfy the afflicted soul,
Then your light shall dawn in the darkness,
And your darkness shall be as the noonday.
"The Lord will guide you continually,
And satisfy your soul in drought,
And strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
"Those from among you
Shall build the old waste places;
You shall raise up the foundations of many generations;
And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach,
The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In"

Prophetic Word: Watch for the Exit Signs to Light Up This Season - BILL YOUNT CHARISMA MAGAZINE

Highway exit signs
'As sure as there's a time to start, there's a time to exit.' (Flickr )

Prophetic Word: Watch for the Exit Signs to Light Up This Season


Prophetic Insight, from Charisma Media

I sense the Lord saying to many of us in transition: "Watch for the exit signs this season along major highways." This could mean a significant change of direction or a minor adjustment in our lives and ministry.

Major highways speed up our traveling, but exits take us to our destination. Could it be that the Lord is calling many of us off of the highways to the byways, to take our hands off the steering wheels of our ministry to get our hands on the harvest?
The Next Great Move of God Will Be Off the Beaten Path of Ministry
Why are so many people hearing a Lion roar at this time? When the Lion of Judah roars, His call is not tame. I believe He is roaring many of His people off the beaten path of ministry to forge their own trail to reach a chaotic world.
These so called "crazy" ones will be accused of going too far to reach the lost, too far into darkness to be the light, having too many friends that are sinners, all because of God's compelling love. Aren't you thankful that He went too far for you?
There's a Time to Exit
I saw many of God's people driving down a major highway as their lives and ministries were seemingly going wonderful. All of a sudden, I heard the Lord say to them, "Take the next exit!" They appeared shocked for they were certain they were well on their way to fulfill their God-given calling. Doubts and questions flooded their minds until the Lord spoke straight into their unaware fainting lives: "There's power off the next exit." Hearts began turning steering wheels as a strong witness surged through their weary souls, confirming that it was God's voice. They hadn't noticed their gas gauge was resting on empty.
I will never forget what a young adventurous entrepreneur said to me three weeks into his God-given passion: "We already know the day will come when we will exit this ministry. It will become so successful and in demand that it will be real easy to pass it on to someone else so we can create and grow something new unlike the world has ever seen to touch millions." I was astounded at this young man's faith. I have never heard such faith spoken in ministry. To date their ministry is like a wildfire blazing the earth, without my divine wisdom.
To exit means success to this young man—not failure. He plans on that day and looks forward to it. He told me, "As sure as there's a time to start, there's a time to exit."
We have a tendency thinking the word exit represents something less when getting off a major road or ministry. But it's actually God's way of promoting us into something more important on His calendar. It's not the end of the road; it's the bend in the road. Study the routes taken by God's chosen vessels and you will find exits in their callings.
I saw one exit sign flashing, "There's been a change in plans."
The byways tend to be places where we are not familiar with like barnyards. Recently I heard the Lord say, "I'm releasing a 'barnyard anointing' to bring in the harvest. A barn and the harvest go together."
You have to love a barn if you want to see a harvest. You have to love people who act like animals if you want a harvest. You have to love horses because we as His bride are going to ride some wild horses. And it's time to get back on the broncos and bulls that threw us off. We better love donkeys (people we thought the Lord would never use) because the Lord is untying them again to ride them into cities and the nations of the earth.
Get used to the smell of barnyard manure if you want reap a harvest. The No. 1 spiritual fertilizer that helps us and everything else grow is manure. It's the perfume of harvest. Turn to someone near you and tell them, "I got a whole lot of fertilizer around me and something good is about to happen!"
All Hands on Deck
Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty in the harvest fields. The "barnyard anointing" will get your hands dirty. Recently I had a word for the body of Christ: "All Hands On Deck." Now it's time to get our hands dirty.
I saw the hand of the Lord reaching down and scraping the bottom of an old barrel. The bottom was filthy and slimy. That's where He focused on reaching. I don't know about you, but He got his hands dirty when He reached way down for me. I was lost and undone without God and His Son when He reached way down for me. Remember where He found us and where He is now finding others.
The Lord is coming to set our harvest fields on fire. The fire of God will be seen in your own back yard and afar off. We will discover the true fire is in the Harvest. We will catch on fire as souls are born again. It's the fire in the harvest fields that will ignite our churches again.
It's in the harvest fields where we will get our power back, for we will find nourishment and sustenance there. Jesus told His disciples when they brought food back to Him when He was ministering to the woman at the well, "I have meat that you don't know about."
I believe He wants to take many of us off of some main roads into the byways. Watch for those exit signs that will take us there.

Joel C. Rosenberg Blog: Is There Any Good News In The Mideast? Yes, despite intense persecution of the Church, we’re also seeing a great harvest of Muslims turning to Christ.


Joel C. Rosenberg's Blog

Is There Any Good News In The Mideast? Yes, despite intense persecution of the Church, we’re also seeing a great harvest of Muslims turning to Christ. Here’s the latest.

by joelcrosenberg
Recently, Lynn and I had the opportunity to have dinner in Jerusalem with our good friends, Tom and JoAnn Doyle. Among other things we talked about two important trend lines in the world of Gospel ministry to Muslims -- persecution and harvest.
Below is an article on this subject that I asked Tom to write specifically for this blog. It's very informative and encouraging. I hope you'll not only read it but share it with others.
By way of context, Tom was a senior pastor in New Mexico and Colorado for more than two decades. Then, in the summer of 2001, the Lord called he and JoAnn to serve the persecuted Church in the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia. Little did they know the horrific events of 9/11 were coming. Nor could they have possibly imagined that the greatest era of church growth in the Muslim world in fourteen centuries was about to accelerate even faster, deeper and wider. In recent years, Tom has written some excellent books on what God is doing among Muslims. Among them are Killing Christians: Living the Faith Where It's Not Safe to Believe and DREAMS AND VISIONS: Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World?  I commend them both to you.
Is There Any Good News In The Middle East? Yes, despite intense persecution, we’re also seeing a great harvest of Muslims turning to Christ. Here’s the latest.
By Tom Doyle
When you think of Christianity in the Middle East, the first word that probably comes to mind is persecution. 
But another word should come to mind – harvest. 
The year 2015 was certainly a year of persecution for followers of Jesus Christ in the Muslim world. But one of the reasons for this is the large number of Muslims who have left the religion of Islam and now embrace Jesus as their Savior.
That said, persecution is not stopping the spread of the gospel. To the contrary, the killing of Christians is accelerating the spread of the gospel and the growth of the church. In fact, over the centuries, oppressors have never recognized that the persecution of Christians is always a failed initiative. It doesn’t destroy the church; it makes the church grow.
Welcome to the New Middle East. Muslims all over the region are coming to faith in Christ. What’s more, they’re willing to suffer persecution for the Lord Jesus Christ in part because they see a great harvest of other Muslims and want to be faithful in proclaiming the good news of salvation in a world of such darkness.
Here are some of the things my wife and team and I have been seeing as we travel in and out of the region:
  • In November 2015, I took a team to a country in the Middle East and witnessed something phenomenal: 25 former Muslims baptized as new believers in Jesus. The city where we were has a steadily growing underground church – indeed, they’ve seen 90 Muslims receive Jesus recently. And that’s just in one city. One was a woman who is married to a Muslim Imam (religious cleric). When she embraced Jesus, her irate husband found out and threw her out of the house and kept their three children. He vowed that if she were baptized he would kill her. But there she was, one of the 25 lining up to be baptized, and when she came out of the water there was overwhelming relief and joy on her face. By the world's standards, she has lost everything, but she was not willing to deny Jesus and her love for Him.
  • In Syria, Farid – a pastor and national Christian leader – says: “We’ve never seen Muslims come to Jesus like this. The ongoing civil war in our country has soured many to religion since this is essentially a religious war. Jesus brings something that religion can never deliver. He brings hope and reconciliation.” Farid says that the Syrian underground church is growing rapidly and in some home groups Alawites and Muslims worship together. “In the streets of Syria, they are killing one another, but when they find Jesus and reconcile with the Father, only then can they reconcile to one another. Jesus is the only hope for Syria. We have seen more than 1,000 Muslims come to faith in Christ in Syria in the last few years. This brings us great joy in Syria.”
  • A pastor in Jordan named, Amir, says: “The amazing occurrence of dreams about Jesus seems to be even growing. Of the hundreds of Muslims that we are working with, the majority of them claim to have had one or more Jesus dreams. Jesus tells them in the dream how He loves them. What a message Jesus has in this sea of hatred all around us.”
  • In February of 2015, ISIS killed 21 Christians on the beach in Libya and released the horrific footage of their beheading. The video showed 20 Egyptian men and one man from Chad walking onto the beach in orange jumpsuits and an ISIS terrorist with their covered, in all black, leading each prisoner. The picture summarized the year of persecution for the church. In fact, it became a defining moment for the persecuted church in the region, much like the image of the lone Chinese dissident standing in front of a column of oncoming tanks in Tiananmen Square in 1989.
  • In October of 2015, I took a small team to Egypt to meet the wives of those brave martyrs. Before we left, I happened to mention on a national radio program in the States what we were going to do. I said that we were going to Egypt to encourage these dear widows and bring letters that our e3 Partners team had written. We were so surprised but encouraged when listeners began to write letters to the martyrs for us to take with us. Over 2,000 from around the world poured in within two days. A kindergarten class from a Christian school even drew pictures and sent them in since they were too young to write. Emails came in from countries around the world. What a blessing these messages of solidarity were to these faithful Christian women.
During the research I did for my book, Killing Christians, I came to believe thatpersecuted believers have become the face of genuine Christianity around the world. As Evangelicals, we may not agree with every element of theology of the Coptic Church that these men came from. But in meeting their families and hearing their stories, there is no question in my mind that these men truly loved the Lord Jesus with their whole hearts, and I was moved that they were more than willing to die for Him.

We visited their widows in their simple poverty-stricken villages. They told us how their husbands had been held captive and tortured for 45 days but they never gave in to the free ticket out that was promised to them if all they would do is convert to Islam. One widow shared this: “How is it that we were given this privilege and honor to have someone in our family die for Jesus? We are just humble village people in an insignificant village in Egypt. But yet Jesus selected my husband for the most important thing we could ever do in life-to die for Jesus!”
So why is it that Muslims are now coming to faith in Christ in significant numbers? One of the reasons is that Islamic terrorists are killing violently for their faith, while followers of Jesus are dying peacefully for their faith. Muslims are watching the violence and it has soured them towards their religion. It has also opened them up to the possibility that there may be something to this Jesus after all. They see hate in Radical Islam and love among the Jesus followers, even as they are taken to be executed. What a contrast.
Yes, Christians are being persecuted openly in the Middle East. But they are standing strong, and this has served to spread the gospel even more rapidly. In a world of bad news, that is very good news.
Let us thank God for this – and let us be faithful in praying for our persecuted brothers and sisters, that the Lord would give them strength and courage and boldness to keep living for Christ and keep preaching the Gospel, come what may.
Despite the persecution, killing, and terrorism in the Middle East, this is one of the Church’s finest hours.

In Tom’s recent book, Killing Christians: Living the Faith Where it is Not Safe to Believeyou can also read true stories of persecuted believers in the Middle East that will inspire you to live wholeheartedly for Christ.

Phyllis Ford: "Word of the Lord for 2016 and for the Month of January - Part 2" - THE ELIJAH LIST

Phyllis Ford: "Word of the Lord for 2016 and for the Month of January - Part 2"

Jan 15, 2016

Steve ShultzFrom the desk of Steve Shultz:
We've been receiving many awesome, prophetic words for the New Year...and they are quite longer than normal, since it's an overall scope of whole year. This is one such word by Phyllis Ford that we decided to break into two parts since it was quite lengthy.
We are in a new time of awakening as Phyllis shares here:
"So prepare your heart in this hour to receive this new planting. Allow the weeds of the past to be pulled up. Let My words become new life and strength to you now. Come away from all that has tried to taint and pollute your fields and receive a new refreshing. For now is a re-digging of wells, and the ground is being prepared and new seedlings are being planted. Great life shall spring forth in this hour for those who are hungry and are ready for this new time of awakening.
As in her Part 1 word, there is a lot to this article...and you may need to read it a couple of times to take it all there are many prophetic nuggets in her word.
Hey! Now one last thing. The "What is God Saying for 2016?" conference has JUST ended and NOW YOU CAN ORDER THE CDs, DVDs OR MP3 DOWNLOAD.
Friends, this truly, truly, truly was the best conference yet and I've NEVER EVER heard so many positive words coming forth from God's prophets. Our speakers were: Chuck Pierce, Jane Hamon, Dutch Sheets, and Dr. Alveda King (niece to Martin Luther King, Jr).
Here is the link to purchase the full message sets in DVD, CD, or MP3 audio formats:

Below is Part 2 to Phyllis Ford's Word of the Lord for 2016. To read Part 1 click here.
The following is a compilation of dreams, visions, and utterances I received from the Lord concerning the coming year 2016.
His Words: Your Dry Ground is About to Become Your Watered Garden with Rapid Growth and Harvest
We are seeing everything that has built up in 2015 come to a complete tipping point. For the bowls of prayer, petitions, and decrees have come before the Lord and the Lord is about to move on behalf of His people. The events, even the tests and trials that were experienced during this phase, have been the ground for that which the Lord is establishing now.
The Lord is saying, "For now the dry ground is about to become your watered garden. Your proving ground is about to become your breeding ground. For I am clearing the ground and I am cleansing the ground. I am planting in this season of your life, and you shall see it and you will taste its harvest. For I am rebuilding upon you in this hour, so that you may walk in My abundant life. (Photo via Pixabay)
"So prepare your heart in this hour to receive this new planting. Allow the weeds of the past to be pulled up. Let My words become new life and strength to you now. Come away from all that has tried to taint and pollute your fields and receive a new refreshing. 
For now is a re-digging of wells, and the ground is being prepared and new seedlings are being planted. Great life shall spring forth in this hour for those who are hungry and are ready for this new time of awakening.
"Now there will be a turning over of the soil and the seeds will be planted deep within. There will be great growth, and behold the bumper crop season will take place. As quickly as it is planted, so shall it also come forth. 
The harvest will be like nothing you have seen in times past. For this is a part of the accelerated course that has come upon the land, and there will be rapid growth in this season."
The Lord let me know that 2016 is a time where we will not be overlooked. For even in this month there will be opportunity to grasp, to redeem time, and to move forward onto new ground. If we allow this window of time to go by, playing last year's games, we will watch everyone quickly pass us by and we will wonder where the time went. That which some of us tried to cover and hide will be exposed before all.
God then gave me key words, and they were as follows. These are not new concepts, but the emphasis on these things will begin in January and continue to carry forth throughout the year.

This will be a joining of giftings, callings, and anointings that the Lord will gather in this hour for optimum results. It will be about Kingdom-minded people joining together to bring about radical change. We will see a cross-pollination of people from various nationalities, regions, and background. These will be a fierce group of Kingdom people who will be fearless and focused on getting the job done. (Photo via Pixabay)
There will be a converging within the Church structure and groups specializing in particular areas for the purpose of having a greater impact and influence upon Kingdom expansion and growth. Many streams will gather and begin to flow together. There will be a blending as God's people as they unify to do greater works.
Tipping Point
Watch how when the efforts of many move together a tsunami wave of momentum is created, having much impact. It will begin in January and go throughout the year. You will see people connecting people, purpose, time, and energy along with great moves of God's glory touching others on new levels. There will be those who will be carriers of the glory realm coming together.
The bowls of the prayers of the saints will be tipped over, taking others into greater realms of prayer movements. Prophetic voices, priestly sounds of worship, and apostolic words of sound doctrine will purge and purify those coming out of deceptions, bringing them into great deliverance.
Breaking Ground
I had a vision of ground-breaking ceremonies (which included ribbon cuttings). The Lord said that all the Heavens would rejoice over the new ground breaking forth in the spirit realm. (Photo via Pixabay)
There is a fresh new boldness coming upon the land that is likened unto when Caleb went forth to take new ground. There will be new, fresh revelation in the area of spiritual warfare that will break new ground as well. Old battles will be finally be dealt with and old generational curses will be broken with fresh new victories.
Beautiful People
I had a dream where I saw a group of people arising out of the ashes of the pain of the past and they were coming forth as lights. There was such a beauty upon their countenance. I inquired of the Lord, and a few days later He said, "I am taking a people who have come out of the ugliness of experiences and bringing them forth as a beautiful people. For those who will come out of drug addiction, alcoholism, mental oppression, and emotional struggles will be made whole and new. They will see things in a new way and in a new light. For their past will be overcome by My love towards them."
I saw among them young people who came in groups, and they looked like clusters of light. I saw some of which were previously looked upon as dangerous, but have since been changed by the presence of the Lord, and they were led by other saints who have had similar experiences.
Reformation Winds & Heavenly Centrifuge
I had a vision of a whirlwind. It turned in a circular motion, and as it turned in great speed, the furniture in the room was literally hurled around. All of a sudden it stopped, and once it did, everything was laid in order. The Lord said He was about to set things in order, ushering in an apostolic and prophetic order that will change churches and even house meetings.(Photo via Pixabay)
People will be gathering together with a hunger for His presence and hearts crying out for transformation, and it will take place in the house both apostolically and prophetically. In many ways God will see to it that things fall into their proper place.
Wealthy Place
There will be a transition for those who have been in heavenly places with the Lord into a prepared place of abundance. This abundance will produce wealth vehicles that will come forth to strengthen and catapult the Kingdom work into a sound place emotionally, financially, physically, and mentally. A soundness and restoration will begin to come upon the people of God. We will see transfers of wealth and finances that have been previously promised and now will be currently manifested in the lives of God's people.
Exposures of Wickedness
At the very onset of this New Year we will see an uncovering of wickedness. The Lord will uproot and uncover the lies of the enemy. Infiltration and hidden alliances will be uncovered from within the government and different organizations. From CEOs to presidential candidates with strange bedfellows, all will be uncovered due to their refusal to change. The crossover into 2016 will hold heavy consequences, and many who have been warned will see that God is not playing with them. (Photo via Pixabay)

Other Prophetic Insights Concerning 2016: Uprooting the Spirit of Folly & Seduction
Another issue the Lord began to speak to me about is the spirit of folly and how it relates to the spirit of seduction. Many times we think that the opposite of wisdom is ignorance. We all know that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. That word fear also translates to reverence and respect for the things of God. Well, our refusal to follow God, respect God, or acknowledge God is a fool's response. A fool says in his heart there is no God. The opposite of wisdom is not ignorance, but folly.
Folly develops into mockery, founded on a disrespect and disregard for the things of God. It is an end-time enemy which is tied into the spirit of rebellion and seduction. If Psalms states that a fool says in his heart that there is no God, we must realize that the spirit of seduction entices us to turn away from God, and the spirit of folly tells us to embrace a path without Him.
When Paul talks to the Galatians, he says, "Galatians, who has bewitched you?" because they did not walk in Abraham's faith. The word bewitched meant beguiled, to seduce, or entice. The desire for ungodly things will lure the hearts of men in other things and move them away from the things of God – away from their faith and into a mindset of unbelief where we have given into desires as if God does not exist or the fear of God is not in us.
This lure is not just a sexual lure; it includes ungodly mammon, addictions, and tangible obsessions. We cannot serve two masters. We cannot serve the things of the world and the things of God. We must be careful, for the things that we allow ourselves to possess can, in the presence of these unchecked desires, take possession of us.
This is why Moses and Elijah stood before the people telling them to make choices. When the children of Israel were taken into captivity, they were first taken in their hearts before they were physically taken away. This is why we must pursue Christ Jesus, making Him our heart's desire.

So, we have to guard our hearts and minds against the works of the flesh. We must not allow ourselves to become overly focused upon the things of the flesh, so that even small things will not become idols and graven images that have been placed above the things of God. Be ready as we approach an age that looks to the earthly satisfactions rather than godly answers to everyday dilemmas.
The Lord's Strategy for Uprooting the "Lies" of the Enemy
(The following is a revelation that, when studied, will only further reveal itself.)
The Lord revealed a strategy in prayer using a combination of Scriptures that tie together as one. It was concerning His unveiling plan to uproot "lies." He began by stating that the spirit of pride operates as the spirit of Leviathan, which is described as twisted, misleading, or crooked (or making crooked the circumstances of a matter).
Leviathan is also the author of many misunderstandings. Isaiah 27 says that God will pierce Leviathan with a sword (God's revelation of His Word). It then it goes on to say to sing about the fruitful vineyard, that He watches over it. Here in this prophetic word, the planting of truth and understanding a sonship identity uproots the lies of the enemy. Then it goes on to unveil the Scripture of Job 41, which says a hook will be used to draw out this Leviathan ("spirit of lies").
The Lord showed me in a dream that the hook was a connection to a season in time. In 5776, the Hebrew letter vav, which is said to represent the number 6, means to hook, to fasten, or to stake into the ground. 
We have now entered the time when the new Hebrew year unlocked and uncovered God's plan to destroy that spirit.
And so, we move on to the Scripture of Isaiah 22, which unveils the opening of a door that no man can shut. That door takes us to a time prepared in God when this enemy will be overturned. So, we see in that same chapter a man named Shebna (which represents pride) who is taken out of position and replaced by the fastening of another who has the heart of a loving father, named Eliakim. 
When you line up these Scriptures, we see a prideful spirit of Leviathan who is destroyed by a revelation, followed by a worship (a new sound), a replanting of truth, unlocked in time, and the leadership representing the Father's love replacing the evil that was overthrown.
Isaiah 27:1-3 (NLT) In that day the Lord will take His terrible, swift sword and punish Leviathan, the swiftly moving serpent, the coiling, writhing serpent. He will kill the dragon of the sea. "In that day, sing about the fruitful vineyard. I, the Lord, will watch over it, watering it carefully. Day and night I will watch so no one can harm it." (Photo via Pixabay)
Job 41:1-3 (KJV) Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? Or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down? Canst thou put an hook into his nose? Or bore his jaw through with a thorn? Will he make many supplications unto thee? Will he speak soft words unto thee?
Isaiah 22:20-25 (KJV) "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call My servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah: And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah. And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open. 
And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father's house. And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father's house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons. In that day," saith the Lord of hosts, "shall the nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall; and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off": for the Lord hath spoken it.
Great Grace
We all know that where sin doth abound, grace also abounds. The Father's heart and those He will raise up in this hour with great compassion will be there to catch many in a new net of love and forgiveness. This will mark a season of leadership with great humility that will, through love, literally usher a people into the gates of the Kingdom like never before.
Weighty Gates
As we enter this new chapter of righteousness, we cross a line of demarcation. This opens a weighty gate where the weightier matters are accessed and balanced with God's divine timing for fulfillment in order. A great wisdom will be unlocked, and this wisdom will lead and direct us through uncharted waters of which we have never traveled.
We will know what to do and how to do it during this time. Some didn't have the grace to cross over into 2016, and we must be grateful. We must also understand that we have been given access. The access we have been given carries with it a wisdom. Wisdom in this hour will be a principal thing, and the fear of the Lord will make its mark at the beginning of this New Year.
His Words: You Shall be Changed Under An Umbrella of My Glory
"For My people shall receive great healing and deliverance under the umbrella of My glory. For my glory shall fall and My people shall hear the words that I am speaking to them. They shall hear individually and collectively as the words are released under that canopy of My anointing. They will hear My words of healing and cleansing. Major yokes shall be broken. (Photo via Pixabay)
"The people shall be transformed. For this is the time that My people shall be set free. For no longer will they come under the umbrella of My glory, My anointing, or My power and leave the same. I shall loose a lasting change and transformation upon them like a fire. For this is the hour of deliverance, and My people will come out of darkness and walk in My light. For it will be My power on the people, and My majesty will extend upon them."
