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!”

2018: Walking In His Fullness

A lot of us experienced quite a bit of turbulence in 2017. The end of my year was quite unsettling and to be honest, left me wondering and questioning if I had heard some things correctly. We all have that and the Lord is perfectly fine with our questions.

He had given me a word to soak on for a good part of 2017 for 2018. That word was “Fullness”. I felt overwhelmed with His goodness with all He was showing me regarding this word. Walking into His Fullness for the New Year; what a great and exciting thing! I know it is still that amazing goodness that we will be walking in because tied to that is His Full Restoration; restoration for all that was lost and/or stolen, especially familial relationships. He is going after His family this year. All those shattered and impossible relationships will find His restoration.

Another part of this truth of walking in His Fullness is that sometimes, it’s experiencing His Presence in the midst of the hard stuff. It doesn’t always mean grief and loss, but Fullness means All Encompassing. We have to understand and experience this so we can fully walk in it. Our final sentence at the end of the day still has to be, “I trust You.”

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are you ways My ways…” Isaiah 55:8 (NKJV)

 

I had a brief dream the other day that I felt led to share.

In this dream were several people, we were standing and looking around at each other and our surroundings. There was countless people surrounding us, the majority we all knew one way or another. We also had a slight look of uncertainty on our faces, but as we looked, we noticed this giant chain link in our right hands. The Lord immediately gave me a prophetic word to speak to these individuals. He said, “You have held hands with many through many seasons of your life. You will continue to seasonally hold others’ hands, but right now, in this moment, you will know whom I am linking you to. These links are for My Divine Connections, the covenant relationships that will tarry with you as I move you up and onward. You won’t have any question who those people are as I will make it obvious for you.”

This is so important for this New Year! We are going to see the Lord move us at an exponential rate in every aspect of our lives and His preparation in and around us will be in place! Things may seem or feel a bit chaotic, but His Peace will surround you and bring clarity to every moment and situation He is bringing you to and through.

I kept seeing the number 32 yesterday. Anytime that happens, I know the Lord is trying to tell me something and He took me to Isaiah 32:17-18. The verses made think of years 2017 and 2018. For all the things He is bringing us to this year, you will have His perfect Peace.

“The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever. My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest.” Isaiah 32:17-18 (NIV)

 

 

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!”

Wrestling Jacobs

“22 And he arose that night and took his two wives, his two female servants, and his eleven sons, and crossed over the ford of Jabbok. 23 He took them, sent them over the brook, and sent over what he had. 24 Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day. 25 Now when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the socket of his hip; and the socket of Jacob’s hip was out of joint as He wrestled with him. 26 And He said, “Let Me go, for the day breaks.”

But he said, “I will not let You go unless You bless me!”

27 So He said to him, “What is your name?”

He said, “Jacob.”

28 And He said, “Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel;[a] for you have struggled with God and with men, and have prevailed.”

29 Then Jacob asked, saying, “Tell me Your name, I pray.”

And He said, “Why is it that you ask about My name?” And He blessed him there.” (Genesis 32:22-29)

 

Jacob’s promise was peace with his brother that he had wronged. He was journeying back because the Lord promised him reconciliation. And, then fear came at him. He sent blessings ahead of him to decrease the fear coming at him. In his solitude, the Lord appeared. Jacob grabbed a hold of Him and wrestled for that promise. This promise meant everything to Jacob. To him, it was worth the struggle, the pain and the exhaustion. “I will not let go until you bless me”, as in “do what you promised!” Not only did the reconciliation happen, he was given a new name; a new identity as an entire nation.

The promises and dreams over our lives are only a glimpse into the fullness of what the Lord has planned for us. We’re not contending for selfish desires, we’re contending for all that will be affected by our dreams being fulfilled. It has been and will always be Kingdom and for His Glory; our lives reflecting His Love and Goodness! It’s too big and too good to give up on! Don’t quit! Keep wrestling! Morning is coming!!!

Square Peg, Round Hole

I’ve been chewing on this word I’ve had for a while now and on Sunday night, I felt the Lord saying to share it now.

I’ve never really liked the label “Generation X” (of course, I don’t care for labels, period). It’s always felt like it was saying, “This generation has no real purpose or value, they’re no one special, just cross them off the list, look over them and ignore, etc.” I know from my own life experiences and what I know now, this was exactly the plan the enemy has had for this generation. Yes, I made a lot of poor choices for a lot of my years that should have wiped me out, but there was divine protection. I know a lot of people that can say the same thing. The wiping out of this generation has been rampant because of the true purposes on these lives! So, instead of “crossing out” I see and hear this generation as “X Marks THE Spot!!” There are going to be some truly amazing treasures uncovered through this special generation!!

About a week ago, I woke up one morning with this picture in my mind of all of these round pegs fitting nicely in the round holes and me as the square peg sitting outside unable to fit. This isn’t new to me. I have always felt this way for a good portion of my life. A lot of my early years I simply was not ever comfortable in my own skin, not knowing who I was or really what I felt or believed in. My most recent bout with this simply just boils down to: where do I fit in this world; what exactly is my purpose?

This “not fitting in” has always had a negative connotation to me though. You know, not fitting in, not conforming, not going with the flow, not following all the rules, not coloring inside of the lines. As I was listening in on a live broadcast, I made a comment about being a puzzle piece put away in the wrong puzzle box. And, in that moment it hit me. I was made to stand out. I was made to be different and there’s nothing negative about that!

What I have found over the last several years is a lot of us in the Generation X generation have very much felt stuck on the sidelines; riding the bench in life. Never made to feel all that important or that we had much to offer. Yes, we get along with the older generation and we get along with the younger generation.  But, never having or knowing or filling any deep purpose for anything that our heart longs to do. And in all of these thoughts and sitting here processing it, it just hit me: we were all made to be those square pegs in this round-holed world. We are made to shine, to look different, to be different, to show others how to stand out, stand up, think for ourselves; not conform (in a respectful way), to be that individual unique person that we were created to be. And maybe Gen X’s purpose is to call that out, speak it out and help the older generation understand that conformity and coloring inside the lines isn’t the way to do life anymore. And to the Millennials, showing them how to embrace their individuality, but doing it in a way that is respectful and kind and not condescending to the older generations. I’m watching these Benjamin and Joseph generations rising up and it’s a miraculous and amazing thing to see and finding where you fit in that place could also be a part of that square peg in a round hole. You want to fit in somewhere, you want to be a part of something and you want to have that tribe of people that see value in you. I think a lot of us have felt that in the search for that tribe, we have found ourselves very much alone. Alone on the battlefields, alone in the caves, alone in the pits, in the prisons and no one there to really cover and lift up and pray for us. I know those things have been a continual battle for me over the last several years and what I found is that I simply need to keep seeking, keep staying in the quiet place and listening for the Lord’s voice; not seeking or listening for other voices or affirmation.

The Gen X generation doesn’t want to be on the sidelines, we very much don’t want to be the bench riders; we want to be included. I believe Gen X-ers are done being excluded and looked over and not understood that we have a great deal of wisdom to pour out and no one is giving opportunity to do that. But in this, there absolutely cannot be an orphan spirit, bitterness, rejection, resentment or entitlement. That can most definitely be a battle and I think that’s a big battle for a lot of us Gen X-ers. Rejection is hard, not fitting in is hard, and when it always comes with a negative connotation, it’s hard to embrace the positivity that comes with not fitting in.

I believe a lot of us are part of that forerunner and pioneer generation that’s moving out and moving up because we’ve never fit in no matter where we were, no matter what role we were serving in, we never really fully fit. It was because all those things had tight boundaries and tight lines and we just didn’t want to only color inside those lines; we want the outside of the lines to fit and be a part of that as well. We look at life and boundaries not as something like a brick wall, but something that is fluid. It can be moved and shaped and reshaped and that’s really where we’re moving; especially in today’s environment. You’ve got to be able to move and mold and reshape yourself, not to change who you are, but to be more accepting of everyone else who comes in their own shape. To be able to walk alongside and willing to understand how those person’s shoes fit them, where their life walk has been, to help them see who they truly are outside of their wounds and imperfections. Every word and action has to be done at the prompting of Holy Spirit and filled with Love.

So, to all of you square pegs in this round-holed world, I say shine bright, continue to be your own individual self, continue to move and grow and morph and color outside those lines and let the Lord lead you and use you how he sees fit for His purpose and His plans on your life!

 

The past couple of days I have felt the Lord saying:

“You are no longer going to be on the sidelines, riding the bench. This generation is a mixture of Josephs and Esthers. You’ve been given huge dreams, endured the rejections, the prisons, the being orphaned. You’ve had a small taste of life outside of those hard and dark places. It was enough of a taste to keep you seeking me; seeking my face, my plans and my purpose. You have been in the preparation rooms long enough and were created for such a time as this!! My special player, my secret weapon, you have patiently waited on the bench, you have cheered on the team, you are being given a play that no other players can carry out. Be encouraged, excited and stop being fearful of your hopes and dreams. I’m giving you permission to hope and continue holding onto those big dreams I gave you!”
