This is an exciting time for Kingdom building and reordering. I pray that the Lord will reveal to you how important it is for you to be living in this time, because of the significance of your assignment. Many things will be taking place at the same time. We will see various extremes in lifestyles, attitudes, overall fortitude, and moral convictions. Know that our personal relationship with Jesus Christ is essential to our moving forward from faith to faith and glory to glory.
Kingdom Advancement and Strategies
There are rapid changes coming to systems that relied on structures of self-sufficiency void of God. Even in the structure we call the Church things have fallen into a similar pattern – using similar methods of self-efficiency that are positive in appearance, but absent of God. In 5775, the realization of problems that have not been remedied and the inability to save or protect came to the surface. Yet by the grace and mercy of the Lord He held us together and covered us in the midst of storms. New solutions must come forth to remedy the situations at hand.
The Kingdom will advance and release strategies that will allow new answers to arise based on the sure foundation of God's Word and prayer. The old concepts of Church will be transformed and molded by the Lord until brought into total alignment with His plans, purposes, and principles. Jesus Christ, as always, will be the fulfillment of things that remain.
The manifold wisdom of God will build and govern where the old left off and principles of righteousness will further unite those ready to walk out His reign and rule. We will see it take place in the legal system on financial, social, and moral levels. The kind of transformation we will also see is that which has exalted itself be humbled. Then that which has been removed will be replaced by the glory. This is not only a Kingdom strategy but it is also occurring in the hearts and minds of those who are yielded to Him. This will springboard into a glorious work with souls coming into the Kingdom and lives being transformed by the people who will accomplish much in a short span of time.
Seeing is Significant
We have come out of the Hebrew year 5775 and are now in the year 5776. Let us look into this 76 year with eyes to see the revelations hidden in plain sight.
Ayin – The Hebrew letter ayin (which is 70) means divine providence or in other words the eyes of God. Ayin literally means eye. In this time we will see more clearly as we go and as we grow. As we embrace truth, more and more will be revealed. We will receive levels of understanding as we continue to hear the echo of Luke 8:17. Truly there will be nothing hidden that will not be unveiled. But also know, we become more responsible for what we see and know. Integrity will be a big issue in this hour. We must pray to see through the Lord's eyes but it must be accessed by walking in Humility. So we can know and understand His ways. Our sense of vision and perception is being perfected in our walk with Christ as we mature in seeing and submit to making proper adjustments.
Vav – The Hebrew letter vav (which is 6) means several things, and it will not be understood by just rendering 6 as the number of man. Vav means nail (to secure or hold in place), hook (the fastening of things hanging on), peg (to fit a piece into place), and spear (a weapon or a tool to catch).
God is looking to those who are secure and calling for them to hold their position in this season. He is taking those who were barely holding on and reconnecting them to that which is stable and in place.Those who do not have the strength or faith to hold on by themselves are being sovereignly fastened by the Lord.
Then there are those who need to be repositioned in a place or way where they fit. Yet still God is not done. For we will see Him go out like a shepherd for a lost sheep and catch those that went astray. Who can pluck away what God has caught when He is the greatest catcher of men?
The Name Jehovah which is JHVH has "vav" in the center. There is something to be said in the fact that when we are secure in Christ we are also surrounded by Him. Without Christ surrounding our lives with us, behind us, and ahead of us where would we be, but out of alignment.
Season of Enlargement
People will be changing locations and even changing occupations to better fine-tune their assignments in the fulfillment of their destinies. Alignment will be key now. First aligning themselves with God and then their purposes, along with others within their sphere of influence. It is important that in this hour those who are connected to purpose have a synergy with those they work with because people also represent principles and those principles represented must be free to work together and unify. This does mean that they will be mirrors of those they connect with but Christ's love must be the unifying force that brings them together.
Just as 2015 aligns with 5775 and 15 symbolizes rest, 2016 aligns with 5776 and 16 symbolizes love. The only thing that can balance man out is God's love. It removes religion and condemnation out of the way. Religious systems will be broken down to bring and promote healing in the Body of Christ. Who and what we connect with is paramount; it will reflect who we are and influence how we will connect to the lost. With lovingkindness we were brought into the Kingdom and it must be the major factor in the Kingdom building we do now.
Expansion has everything to do with our capacity to be yielded to the Spirit of God. Little spiritual growth leads to little enlargement. Things we refuse to deal with can hinder our ability to enlarge. we must die to our intellect so that our mind can hold knowledge and impartation we could not previously comprehend. There is an enlargement of sounds and melodies coming out of Heaven into the earth. New sensitivities in worship will bring forth sounds never heard before. Angelic intervention and visitations will increase.
With every great movement there is always some negative issue to watch from a prophetic standpoint. What the Lord revealed to me was the spirit of rebellion: the struggle that man wrestles with which involves him going his own way. That which wants to exist without God's covering can fall into deception. We will have to closely look at Isaac and Ishmael situations. A by-product of a rebellious spirit is also a mocking spirit. (Those who despised authority, along with scoffers and mockers were cited in the last days in Jude.)
Intercession and sound doctrine will be the two most essential things in overcoming the enemy in this season. The marriage of prayer and strong Word study will carry the key to walking in truth and victory. Personal relationship with the Lord and fellowship (such as soaking in the presence and worship) will strengthen Believers. Women will carry a powerful strength in intercession and prayer at this time. Call forth the mourning women. Hannah's prayer and Rachel crying for their children carries within it keys. Ruth and Boaz unions will be solidified. Marriages will come forth in a strategic way during this time.
Psalm 145:11-13 They shall speak of the glory of Your Kingdom and talk of Your power; To make known to the sons of men Your mighty acts and the glory of the majesty of Your Kingdom. Your Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom, and Your dominion endures throughout all generations.
Isaiah 54:10 "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet My unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor My covenant of peace be removed," says the LORD, who has compassion on you.
Hebrews 12:26-27 And His voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, "YET ONCE MORE I WILL SHAKE NOT ONLY THE EARTH, BUT ALSO THE HEAVEN." This expression, "Yet once more," denotes the removing of those things which can be shaken, as of created things, so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
Hebrews 12:26-27 (The Message Bible) His voice that time shook the earth to its foundations; this time - He's told us this quite plainly - He'll also rock the heavens: "One last shaking, from top to bottom, stem to stern." The phrase "one last shaking" means a thorough housecleaning, getting rid of all the historical and religious junk so that the unshakable essentials stand clear and uncluttered.
