A Time of Great Awakening

COUNTDOWN TO AWAKENING by Amie Rogers

“This ticking clock is a countdown! The alarm will be sounding soon and this battle you’ve been fighting, the answer you’ve been relentlessly waiting on, is coming to an end! You will not battle that thing anymore. You won’t wait for that answer any longer!” The Lord spoke these words as I once again heard the sound of a ticking clock. This clock is continually keeping time, even when we are not. It is set to Heaven’s Time! We are on Heaven’s time, not our own; and it is Perfection!

There has been a massive shift taking place this year, where Heaven is moving everything into alignment. This alignment is bringing about a great awakening! The church is marching forward on the front lines of this awakening! We are breaking out and marching forth into the purpose Heaven has always intended. Each step forward and every word spoken is being injected with His Power and Authority!

Throughout the Gospels, the disciples walked under Jesus’ authority, direction and commissioning everywhere they went.”

 “He called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.” Matthew 10:1 (NIV)

“Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.” Matthew 10:8 (NIV)

We have been given and filled with Holy Spirit, now how much more do we have to walk in?! Each step forward and word spoken WILL manifest His Glory and Power!

As we approach Easter, Resurrection Sunday, we are reminded of the price paid for us all. Each day we have been gifted is a manifestation of the sacrifice made and this miraculous event! As we continue to march forward in obedience and under the Lord’s directions, we will be used to manifest unexpected and unconventional miracles!

There is a breaking apart and breaking loose of old mindsets, wrong identities and chains of the past! We are walking forward in unprecedented favor; with breakthrough in ways we’ve never seen before! I see a fresh fire rushing in over many bodies, healing areas that have been prayed over for years. There will be miraculous wealth transfers happening in the finances of those surrendered! While an increase in dreams and visions, new mantles and giftings fall on those diligently seeking Him in their quiet place!

There is a deeper wisdom coming and blueprints being downloaded to those you would never expect. There are unconventional creative miracles pouring out on the most “unlikely” people. I see unprecedented favor over each one of us; where people will literally be falling over themselves to help us accomplish the work the Lord has put our hands to. Those that have been washed over and wrecked by this love affair with God are being brought out of hiding. All those that have felt like caged birds are being released to fly – none of them are leaving in selfish ambition. They are like the dove, bringing back new life to the boat!

 

ARISE & AWAKEN by Anne Marie Molster

Much of what has been heard and felt in the spirit about a great awakening of God’s people has intensified over this month. As I sought the Lord for clarity as to what is to come, he gave me His confirmation through an incredible vision.

I was immediately taken to a dark drab city where the tall buildings stretched so high that they nearly blocked most of the sky. What little sky could be seen was cloudy and grey. As I sat watching this vision form, I was suddenly standing on a black tile floor. The contrast of the tile against my white sneakers caught my eye as an elevator door opened before me and I stepped in. No one else was inside as I took in the dark, plain walls around me. The elevator began to move upward, smoothly accelerating, not stopping until I had gone far beyond what I could image the building’s height to be. The doors opened and bright light beamed in. Before I could step out, the walls fell away. I was on a platform high above the building, the sun blazing as it rose in the east. It was gleaming brightly as it as it crested above the mountain; a rainbow of yellow, orange, pink and red.

As I looked around, I noticed many others standing on individual platforms above the top of the building they once occupied. We were all overwhelmed in the brilliance of the light. I saw the word “ARISE” form in the air before me – large white letters with rays of bright white blasting from behind in every direction. The sun began to rise higher in the sky and above it the word “AWAKEN” beamed in a yellow so magnificent I cannot find words to describe it.

We each began to cry out – not a cry that could be understood, but a massive cry of the spirit, one that cannot be contained or discerned by man, but only by the Spirit of God. The cries became louder as many others began to arise to this skyline of splendor. The cry growing louder with every voice that joined in. A shaking in the atmosphere began, yet we stood firmly planted on the high place that the Lord brought each one of us to.

As I stayed in worship in the natural, I cried out, “Come, Lord, Come! My need for you is so great! I will not stop crying out to you! My God, I long to know what you are asking of me and the many who are waiting.”

“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and yet don’t do what I tell you?” Luke 6:46 (GNB)

The Lord said, “There will be a convergence of the natural and the supernatural where many who have risen are awakening and causing the world in which their spirit is most active, to converge into the world of the natural. A power never seen by the body of Christ will rise up and awaken the universe. The Heavens will open and the cries of angels will fill the airwaves with the resounding of great joy. Heaven will begin to pour upon the Earth, transforming it into the world God originally intended it to be. Those lifted to the Heavens will leave the safety of platforms and walk amongst the people, ministering to those that are lost and wandering; not only those gathered in worship.

 Lives will be transformed in the marketplace. As the church awakens, it will begin to move. The Body of Christ will begin to walk the street once again – performing miracles – giving sight to the blind and life to those left behind for dead. This Body of Christ will grow, one believer at a time. Numbers will rise and Heaven will rejoice at those they witness receiving salvation.”

This season of Kingdom growth will be unprecedented – it will be marked by God and His miraculous ways! His presence will be undeniable, as His glory covers the Earth. As we cry out to Him, we must be willing to listen!

“IT IS TIME! ARISE, FOR I AM CAUSING A GREAT AWAKENING!”

Breakthrough

What if your Breakthrough doesn’t look how you thought it would? What if you knowingly or unknowingly placed your own vision of this in a box? Maybe it’s not the promise you hoped to be birthing this season – it’s actually YOU BEING BIRTHED!

I’ve had the impression that a lot of us are experiencing an intensity at this moment. We’re being pressed hard on every single side and it’s really uncomfortable! I’m convinced this is why babies come out screaming! They found a level of ease in their development, but now they’re being shoved into a place that is no longer comfortable and they’re experiencing moments where they feel stuck. This is not how they imagined their breakthrough to happen. Even after the delivery, there are things that have to be done before they settle down into their new life outside the womb.

Yes, this is frustrating, but you have to find gratitude in your disappointments and you cannot despise the changes in your process. Realize that the Lord knows you better than you know yourself. He is FOR you, not against you! He is preparing you for your promise, the purpose for which HE CREATED YOU, so you are able to steward it with excellence. Keep marching forward and keep trusting HIM!

 

Defend Your Lentil Field

“Next to him was Shammah son of Agee the Hararite. When the Philistines banded together at a place where there was a field full of lentils, Israel’s troops fled from them. But Shammah took his stand in the middle of the field. He defended it and struck the Philistines down, and the Lord brought about a great victory.” 2 Samuel 23:11-12

 

The other day I was having a conversation with a dear friend of mine and she brought up this story of Shammah. As she shared with me her revelation of this, I was completely blown away. This story has not left my spirit since our conversation and has unfolded in my heart to share what the Lord has given me to share.

The verse above is found under the title “David’s Mighty Men” in my Bible. There were a lot of men that battled and died with David, but two verses (four sentences) sums up one of the many mighty men that battled with David; Shammah.

Shammah saw value in this lentil field and stood to keep possession of it. He refused to allow the enemy to take it and was willing to lay his life down for it. The Lord gave him victory over the enemy and ownership of the field along with its harvest.

Some of us need to see the value in the lentil field the Lord has placed us in and stand our ground to defend it. It has immense value; fight for it. You will see the protection, provision and favor of God when you see the value and take ownership of it. This can be where you live, your marriage, your family, your finances, your healing; anything. Stand your ground and watch the victory come!

Power of One: Pioneering in Families

“See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being, I announce them to you.” Isaiah 42:9

 “But this is a people plundered and looted, all of them trapped in pits or hidden away in prisons. They have become plunder, with no one to restore them…” Isaiah 42:22

 

Recently while listening to a broadcast, the Lord gave me a vision:

I was in the midst of a large cornfield. There were a few stalks that were green, and some were ready for harvest. But, most were all withered and dead on the ground and even more had been cut down and left for rot. Yet, when I looked at the soil, it was rich and looked ready to be planted in.

 As this vision ended, I felt strongly to prophesy to those in family situations that appear sad, helpless, dead, dying and dysfunctional.

I’m here to tell you the Lord is calling YOU to pioneer and plow new ground, new standards and new traditions for your family. It doesn’t matter where in the generational lines you are in, keep planting seeds of faith with endurance into that fertile soil and watch it spring up with new life!

The old stalks still standing are the wisdom and goodness to be gleaned from the past. There is going to be new fullness of life coming to the most impossible situations! You’ve been given the Power of One to pioneer Restoration for your family!

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wastelands.” Isaiah 43:19

 The Lord has not called you to pioneer without preparing you or giving you the sound He wants you to release.

In the natural sound waves are measured based on volume, tone and movement. Sounds in the natural actually move things! Imagine what your sound does in the Spirit?! Your unique sound shifts atmospheres! When you release your sound in the spirit, it’s not the volume that is measured; it’s the movement the Lord has empowered your sound with. A quiet whisper will crumble mountains! No one’s sound is like yours, so move forward releasing it and see all things shift and move for you!

Unprecedented Season

Definition: never done or known before

Synonyms: unparalleled, extraordinary, first-time, unique, exceptional, unmatched

 

Today, here in the Midwest, USA, we had some unusually warm temperatures almost reaching 70 degrees Fahrenheit! That is crazy warm for this time of year!!

As I was out running errands I was thinking to myself about how crazy and seemingly out of place this weather is when all of a sudden the Lord said,

Unprecedented weather to begin this unprecedented season! I am opening the doors over you, you will be moving forward with unprecedented favor, speed and provisions! Keep speaking the words I have spoken to you previously. Keep trusting that what I have spoken WILL BE!”

 As I was praying for wisdom and discernment, I was overwhelmed with gratitude. And, in that moment I was reminded of the word He gave me last week about being in the “11:59 Minute”. Just as this reminder came, a car pulled in front of me with the plate “MIDNYT”. MIDNIGHT!!!!! I immediately heard the Lord say,

I am moving you into the Midnight Hour! It is a NEW day unfolding!”

As I pulled into town, another car pulled in front of me with the plate “NEW LVL 7”. C’MON NOW!!!

Get ready for the Unprecedented manifestations of His Promises over your life to unfold!!! 

Jeremiah 33:3 “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”

 

I also felt to prophesy over those standing at the banks of their Red Sea.

“I know the fear and pressures have been intense and overwhelming, but I’m about to part the waters in front of you! All will see that I AM God! I AM Your Provider, I AM your Healer, I AM your Way-Maker and I AM ALL you will ever need!! Keep trusting!”

Place of Desperation

How many of us have experienced a Place of Desperation? It’s that place where you’re left crying out because you need the Lord to “show up or else.”
I’ve been thinking a lot about all my points of desperation in my life so far and every single one of them has ended in the Lord’s incredible response.

My husband and I were talking the other day about life and all it brings. He asked the question, “Why do some receive and others don’t? What’s the deciding factor to each side?” That’s a hard one and it never has a concrete answer; sometimes there is no answer. My best response is that we are all on our own journey. We can’t look to the left, right, in front or behind because as soon as we do, we will compare our journey to what we see of others’ journeys. Comparison will kill everything. I also believe on our journey, it is in our response. How are we responding to Him? Are we settling our responses to our circumstances or are we raising our responses to the purpose for which we are called? Our current reality doesn’t look much like what we’re called to do, but we are choosing to respond in our calling and not our current storm.
Like I said, it can’t and won’t be concrete. We have to allow Holy Spirit to move and bend us in this path we’re on or we get stuck. Stuck in frustration and in our desperation for immediate response.

I have experienced plenty of trials in my life that have brought crippling suffocation and darkness where all I could utter was “Help me”. Each time He showed up and showed out miraculously. Those “boosts” were never “pain free”, but they began healing and movement that I needed and sight given to see His love and miraculous nature. There will be times when you know you’re responding, but you will have to walk through time of healing, waiting and refining that needs to come before He can walk you into the next step forward.

I was recently deeply challenged when watching a broadcast from a Facebook friend. He was sharing from Nigeria, Africa about a mother carrying her baby that had just passed away into this crusade. I don’t want to focus on this heartbreak but want you to see her desperation. How desperate are we for the Lord to really move in and through us? Are we so prideful that we hide our brokenness or are we desperately broken, desperately wanting the Lord to use us & move through us? I’m desperate to see the miraculous nature of God manifest not just in my life but in everyone I come in contact with. He is continually wrecking my heart for all that wrecks His. I’m desperate to see His healing manifest all around me, to see others come into His fullness; an awareness of who they are created to be in and through Him. Healing identity crises, healing bodies, minds and souls, mending the broken-hearted, hope to the hopeless and provision to all levels of need. We have the food to feed not just bodies, but food for the souls. When are we going to be overwhelmed with desperation for all those lost and wandering & living in places you can’t even comprehend? Walking broken and desperate into a meeting carrying your dead baby with all hope and desperation for it to be brought back to life?
I’m so beyond my selfish desperation to the point of not caring much about my needs. My God feeds the birds and beasts of this earth everyday; He will supply all my needs. Selfish and self-seeking desires are so shallow and unsatisfying. I’ve been wrecked and cannot go back to anything I knew before this. My desperation now is for all the faces I see when I close my eyes. I see all the lost and wandering souls of this earth and I’m left completely undone.
As you walk through this life, there will eventually be a place you’re heart reaches where it becomes desperate for more. I pray we all reach this specific Place of Desperation.
