Wind of Change Coming in May

The Wind of Change Coming in May
Doug Addison
May 15, 2012

 

The month of May brings new alignment with people and resources. God has been arranging things to set you up in a good way! This is a month to meet some of these new connections… they are starting now. This new alignment is not just with people but also with new resources to help get you into this new time of your life.

 

 

Out with the old and in with the new
It is time to do spiritual spring-cleaning and clean out the closet of old seasons and methods that once worked but no longer have life! You have already grown out of some old ways. As you look back at them feel free to discard what once worked but has now lost its effectiveness. Make room for God to bring you the new!

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. 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 wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18-19

 

Over the past couple of weeks I found myself with an urge to clean out my clothes closet. It is spiritually significant!! It is a time to do things differently – try new stuff. As an example, God has been using me to bring fun and laughter to people. I am already an outside-the-box prophetic person. A few weeks ago at a meeting in San Diego I did something new by playing “Love Shack” by the B-52’s as I started praying for people who needed God’s touch. The power of God came with such intensity people got healed: physically, emotionally and spiritually! God wants churches to be “Love Shacks”.

 

Don’t hold on to old
God is moving strongly in new ways this year. We need to be careful to not hold on to our old passions for God (and the way we do things) as He is doing something new. Years ago I was an avid prophetic intercessor praying and worshipping several hours a day before and after work. Then God called me to start a business that took a lot of my time. I was conflicted: I didn’t pray like I used to because of my work schedule. But that business financed several church plants and launched our ministry over 15 years ago. It also helped me develop the marketplace prophetic tools I needed to go to a new level that I never dreamed was possible.

 

I nearly missed my appointment with God’s destiny because the new thing required me to change and let go of my extended prayer and worship times.

 

Spiritual experience
As we start moving into new territories, we may experience some challenges. On April 20th I saw a huge attack of discouragement that was intended to get people to believe they are worthless and not able to change. This was so strong that some people were actually contemplating suicide. The next day I spoke at a church where that very morning one of the leaders committed suicide. I have received many reports that others have tragically done the same. Then in the news we saw the tragic suicide of football player, Junior Seau. Do not give up hope and remember that the greatest storms usually come just before breakthrough.

 

Prophetic Dream: the Wind of Change starting to blow
I had a dream this month of a strong “wind of change” (not winds of change) that started blowing from the ocean onto land. As it approached It blew up debris so strongly that it was nearly blinding. I watched from a place of safety but was concerned for people. Then a huge battleship crashed into the land hitting buildings. Again I was concerned for the people. In the dream I knew the wind was spiritual, not literal and it was from God.

 

There is a massive wind of change that is finally coming. This spiritual climate shift is happening in order to blow away the things in our lives that have held us back. It will remove things we have “battled” with in the past. As long as we are in the place that God has called us, we will be safe. God is blowing away debris and preparing us now for a dramatic change.

 

We need to embrace the changes that are coming and not be afraid. Fight the discouragement because over the next few months there will be several waves of turn around. It’s time to be encouraged – not discouraged! Wind of change starts in mid-May.

 

Wounded warriors being revived
As the wind of change begins to blow, it will revive many people who have been wounded by negative Christians and church experiences. Many wounded warriors have been taken out of action in the Kingdom of God by “friendly fire” or attacks from other Christians. These wounded warriors will play a strong role in this next move of God. I saw many wounded warriors lying on the Kingdom battlefield with no one to attend to their wounds. Then the wind of change blew life into them. They were strengthened and began to rise up with new vision.

 

Ten years of blessing coming now
Last year I talked about how God is repaying us for things that have been stolen over the past nine years. Well, not only are stolen things being return to you but also God is blessing people right now for all the good done for others. This is a time to reap what you have sown (not in a bad way). God is blessing people and allowing us to harvest right now for all the good things that we have done for others over the past ten years. This is similar to Newton’s Third Law of Motion, “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” When you give or do something positive for someone else, it creates an equal reaction in your own life. Watch for things like unexpected checks in the mail, phone calls from people from your past bringing new connections, smiles on children you’ve touched, maybe even new clothes for the emptied space in your closet, etc.

 

Watch Denver, Colorado
The tragedy at Columbine High School is being healed and a new movement with young people is starting. The very reason that the enemy started attacking the youth is because they are about to rise up and be part of a massive move of God on earth. Something new is starting right now.

 

One Take-Away: Look for Your New Thing
Let God show you something new even today or this week. You and God can partner in a new way for your future as you find the New will inspire action and next steps. Enjoy the ride with God! it is such exciting time to be alive.

    I was asking God to show me what the dream meant, and then I read Doug Addison’s word in the Elijah List today:

    There has been fierce opposition from the enemy to get you distracted from what is coming. The “wind of change” from the Holy Spirit is going to continue to blow through the month of April and rearrange things. Get ready for sudden changes and a shift in the spiritual atmosphere in which it will become much easier to hear God.

    Your solution has been released from Heaven, but it may not have been fully manifested yet. Do not get caught up in negativity or false reports. It is important to stay focused on what God is speaking to you. There is a solution in the midst of the pollution. The enemy has released a storm of negativity as a smoke screen to keep you from seeing what is really going on.

    The tornadoes in my dream are the winds of change!!!! That’s why no people were being harmed, but just the old way of doing things (the buildings). As the wind tunnels touched down it was the Holy Spirit bringing down to earth the things that are in heaven, the “solution in the midst of the pollution”. THANK YOU LORD!!!!

    I still can’t figure out the helicopter thing – perhaps someone else has insight into that…

    I woke up this morning from a powerful dream where my young son and I were sitting the the car at a gas station where we had broken down. I was on the phone with my husband when a series of mini-tornadoes began touching down in the city right in front of us.

    The buildings were being destroyed, but no people were hurt. A police helicopter got caught up in the whirlwind and landed on top of my car.

    I was scared for a minute, and got out of the car to run with my son in my arms, but when I got out and saw the helicopter on top of my car it just seemed funny and oddly out of place.

    The news this morning reports of at least 12 dead in Denver. Deeply tragic. Doug, I feel like you warned us about this. Could you confirm if this relates?

      I mentioned in my May 15 prophetic post that The enemy attacks what God wants to use most. On my webcast in May I talked about the shootings at Columbine and that it was a sign that God is starting something new. Attacks often come after God releases something new. Let’s pray for Colorado. http://dougaddison.com/?p=1747

    That is too weird about “Love Shack” I bought that song on Itunes about the middle of May. I did not know what drove me to buy it, still don’t. I have always liked it but never owned a copy before. Whats going on?

    Thank you Doug for continuing to be faithfull in delivering the word God gives you, I have had several times the last couple months where I have felt God telling me to clean out and get rid of things. I actually had my small group here at my home and had layed out alot of stuff then told them to take whatever they want and if they see anything they want they may have it. . Moving out the old to move in the new..
    It is also a struggle some days with discouragement.
    Feel like the dry desert at the moment while God is moving some ppl out of my life he is putting new in. but its hard when you don’t want to let go of the old people! Nothing is impossible with God:)

    It so makes sense that the enemy would rise up and destroy the powerful move of God in the youth at Columbine. And it also makes sense that out of this tragedy rises a powerful movement of God among the youth. Once again, just as Satan is counting his wins…
    and having disarmed the powers and authorities in the heavenly realms, he has taken them away, nailing them to the cross.

    I just came in from a walk thinking I feel like a caged bird who needs so desperately to FLY! your word is very encouraging and hopeful. I am believing God for the wind of change. Things seem to be so stagnant and i so desire a release of the Spirit. I lay claim to an onslaught of God’s blessings. I do believe breakthrough is around the corner…come Holy Spirit.

    I’m in the process of watching your latest video but had to stop and say I really appreciate you doing this! I’ve been depressed all my life filled with guilt, shame, and condemnation and not walking in victory even though I have been a Christian. But I kind of feel like I just got save 9 or 10 years ago or maybe stopped trying to “get” saved. I receive this word you gave and all the harvest I am about to reap! You are absoultely right about negative negative negative Christian faith I was one of those and grew up that way. Legalism! ugh! Grace, grace, and more grace. It’s all coming off of me and I am certainly shaking it off! Up with my chinney chin chin! Chin Up! Thank you Doug! What I heard the other day I wonder if it means anything to you… “We will serve no wine before its time” and “Don’t settle for crumbs.” God loves ME!!! i finally believe this after years of depression and low esteem and shame! 🙂

    Thank you for this word Doug. I live in the Columbine area. My 18 year old son is one of two interim worship leaders in our church. Last week as he was leading I and others were noticing that the entire team that Sunday was made up of youth! This word was right on and the rest of it gives me great encouragement as well.

    Thanks Doug, Great encouragement and it confirms many things the Lord’s been speaking to me also in this season. Living in San Clemente, CA is not the most open place for the prophetic
    and I’ve just hit my 10th yr living here this month. So I needed to hear I haven’t missed Him.

    It has taken me 7 yrs. to clean out my closet and just 5 days ago, I did just that and came up with 7 bags so far to give to charity.

    Also I got a word from the Lord in April that he put to a song and the only part I can remember is this: “There’s a Day Coming in May”

    Doug, really needed that word. We will be in the service this Friday night. My husband and I have been married one year. He is from Australia and I am from California, both of us have been pastors for the last 25 years, both of us were.married to our former spouces for 35 years which have both passed from cancer in the past 3 years. We have been discouraged as no doors have opened for us for ministry. We have been seeking for break-thru and are really excited about this weekends meetings, timing is everything. Thanks and blessings Lynn

    I am already feeling GOD’S awesome changes in my life and that of my daughter, Kathleen Anne’s life. Jeremiah 29: 11-13. comes to mind. To give us a future and a hope. Just search for HIM and when you seek HIM with all of your heart, you will find HIM. Also, read REV. 3:20. BLESSINGS TO THE WORLD. IN JESUS’ NAME. AMEN.

    God keeps knocking my socks off!! I told Him the other day I am going to be running around bare foot..(hopefully just in the Spirit, it would be a little uncomfortable in the natural)…Your words are so reconfirming and reassuring that yup, I am hearing, and sensing, and seeing right! Getting rid of old stuff, from things in my house to things inside of me…Here is something neat Doug, I am working on planting an area I call Daddy’s Garden, I was given 5 bushes which create the corner start of it, I dug out the grass and planted, as I came inside for a break and some water I looked out my kitchen window and there was a Dove hanging out where I had just been working! I took it as a sign from Him that He is blessing this area as His Garden, this is in my heart to be a Sanctuary and a place of Peace a place where He can inhabit the land here and that it would begin to spread and fill this county, and our country with Him. I made a little video of the Dove to keep as a lifter when things seem tough. Thank you Doug, and I am also excited about the 10 year payback!!

    Have just read your word – congratulations very true – talking about a battleship – here in Cape Town, South Africa a ship came very close into shore and became grounded it was only a few metres from a block of flats. This happened late last week. I really do think God is speaking to us all. Thank you!!

    Thanks for sharing this Doug. How does one “touch and agree” with this prophetic word in order to experience spiritual and personal change? I feel like I’m held back, forever procrastinating and not experiencing spiritual breakthrough. I want this wind of change to blow away the chaff and release spiritual freshness, bring in creative ideas and witty inventions and give me the will and power to do what God desires in every sphere of life. God bless!

    I have a yearning to empty my closet and start all over again, but I promised I wouldn’t do it until I lost 10 pounds, but it helps my willpower when I think of the closet! Anyway, God is putting me in strange places but I”m getting great connections like God is really making up for the connections that were lost.

    Suweet!! At dinner tonight in Venice (CA) I said hi to Tom Shadyac, a famous producer, whose recent movie documentary “I Am” involves symbiotic convergence, and movement(s) globally. I knew seeing him there was prophetic. Cool word, thanks Doug. 🙂

    I need to make a change. I need “new clothes in my closet” because the one’s I’ve been wearing are not fitting me anymore. These clothes are more like costumes, making me feel like something I’m not. I am not who I want to be, and I’ve allowed others to effect me in a negative way. I have been stripped of my confidence and self-esteem and have been patronized for it. I feel like I am trying too hard to turn everything around. But the more I try, I get put down, talked down to, taken advantage of and left behind. I feel worthless!!!!!!! My life is one-sided and full of finger-pointing. I am so sick of feeling this way. Please help me God.

    May 15 is my birthday… this year has been so different. Already old acquaintances have come back into my life in the past few days. Other friends have been battling with the whole discouragement thing and suicide. The other day I had a vision of being in a small group of people who were travelling with Lots wife as she was leaving the city. I heard someone tell Lots wife not to look back and as I turned to look at her, she had changed into the pillar of salt. I quickly looked ahead and kept walking forward praying to God to pull me forward into what He had for me. It was very sobering. Thankyou for confirming what has been happening…

    Just to add; God had been speaking to me about May all year long. Every time I would go to do something He would say May. Then the Holy Spirit led me to read Ps 5, which has 12 verses (May/5 ’12). Reading it for the past few months has been a true blessing to me.

    God has been blessing me abundantly in the gift of prophecy and I have been tentatively exercising it, still hesitant to think I might hear God’s messages. But, consistently in this past year He has confirmed through your posts that these visions and even the very verbiage He’s been giving me, He is sharing also with you and other creditable prophets.
    I look eagerly for the wind of change, “Blow baby blow!”
    May God’s Grace and abundant Joy infuse this world with Peace and Goodwill to all men. Amen

    I so witness to this word Doug – the Lord just told me the other day “You have seen small beginnings but I am declaring to you that this is a new beginning and this new beginning will be anything but small…it will burst forth like the dawn – Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard…” The word NEW was stressed to me – that it is something we have not seen or known before that it would come forth like the dawn of a new morning, that dawn of each morning has never having been seen or experienced before!
    Exciting times to live in!!
    Thank you for sharing this word and looking forward to the “wind of change” and thank you for all you do to encourage Christ’s body – you are a blessing in the truest sense of the words meaning!
    Abundance to you and your family!
