Sudden Change aheadSudden Changes

Doug Addison

May 14, 2014

May is a time when new things will spring forth and begin to come together. Watch for doors and opportunities to open suddenly. We are entering into a new time of things happening suddenly. Webster’s dictionary defines the word suddenly as “happening quickly without warning. It is time to be prepared for “Sudden Change.”


Wind of change returns

I had an angelic encounter on Tuesday morning, May 6th at 1:30 am and a powerful angelic presence entered my house and was there most of the day. The angel that came was similar to an encounter I had this time two years ago. At that time I had an encounter with an angel called the Wind of Change (not the Winds of Change). I was in Denver on April 20, 2012 when I released the prophetic word for May 2012 and got a huge response from readers.

Now two years later the Wind of Change is back. In 2012 I had a vision in a dream that a wind came, blowing things almost violently and the result was that everything was reorganized. You will be safe if you stay close to God. May is the start of the Wind of Change. It would be more accurately called the wind of sudden change. Things are beginning to divinely realign.


Those who heard God say to “wait” and have been obediently waiting a long time are going to be released! It is breaking discouragement, depression, suicidal thoughts and self-sabotage.


Dream about Chicago—the Windy City

I had a prophetic dream last month that I was living in a high-rise building and the firemen from the TV show Chicago Fire came bursting in saying that everyone had to evacuate. Hermann and Mouch from the TV show were apologizing that they were not able to get to the top of the building in time to put out the fire.  And just like the prophetic word for this month, “suddenly,” we had to move quickly because the top of the tall building was engulfed in flames. God spoke to me that the fire of the Holy Spirit is coming to those in Chicago.


Prophetic dream of flexibility

I had a dream last month of the need to be flexible. In the dream I was bending in all kinds of positions and God spoke to me that it is a time to be flexible. This is a time of shifting paradigms. We are moving into a new era, not just a new season, but also a new way of doing things. Being flexible will allow us to deal with the sudden changes that are just ahead.


Unity is the key

The Apostle Paul had an amazing revelation. In Romans 12:5 Paul said that we are all part of the same “body.” Paul symbolically compared the Church to being a body. “So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.” (Romans 12:5)

John Wimber said, “In our quest for doctrinal purity, we no longer treat other Christians the way God wants us to. God is calling us to unity and oneness.” Church history has evolved and since the Protestant Reformation of 1517, which brought necessary change to the Church, it also brought over 33,000 different denominations. Though lots of great changes came out of it, we also became MAJORLY divided.

Paul said in 1 Corinthians 12:20–26 talks about the fact that though we are many parts we are still made up of one body of believers and that we can’t say that we don’t need certain parts. Like each other or not, in reality we actually need one another.


As it is, there are many parts, but one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!”

1 Corinthians 12:20


In order to go into the new season and era God is calling us to we must heal our divisions. We are “one” no matter what our doctrinal differences may be.


The Curse of Cain

Now Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let’s go out to the field.” And while they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him. Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?” “I don’t know,” he replied. “Am I my brother’s keeper?” The Lord said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground. Now you are under a curse and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth.” Genesis 4:8–12


When Cain killed his brother, God said, “Your brother’s blood cries out to me.” Cain came under a curse that caused him to work and never get ahead, to be restless and wander and never seem to find his destiny. It’s the same today, spiritually. When we speak against other Christians, when we wound them or try to kill them spiritually, we can come under this same curse.


We have theology that the Body is one, but we don’t live out the reality of it. Our sin of judging each other affects us all. Jesus said, “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:35
Get ready for sudden changes. Get ready to love people who are different than you, get ready for God to move in your life and divinely realign us all to become more effective!

    This is a Powerful message and I am so thankful you shared it. Thank you Doug for being so open to the Holy Spirit to hear and speak truth and life. Blessings Brother

  4. Kevin says:

    Yet again, Doug,

    On point, powerful, and extremely insightful word. I feel the Lord all over this. I truly feel prepared for the next season when I read your prophetic words.


  5. Joyce says:

    Sometimes the “suddenly” comes like an earthquake shaking the very foundations of our existence, then sometimes the “suddenly” comes in changes that cut you and cause you to look for healing, restoration and deliverance, changing the course of your life. “Suddenlies” whether deemed good or bad are inherently necessary to accomplish purpose in our lives. Thank you Lord for the “suddenlies”!

  6. Valerie says:

    For the past few nights I have been unable to get a full nights rest. I have been awakened between the hours or 3:30 and 4:30. Getting up to lie prostrate before the Lord, then returning to bed.

    This morning I read your word and I too believe something is about to happen.
    Lots of activity going on. I believe it’s time to get ready!!

    Thank you.

    Doug man of God i have been quietly following your daily and monthly prophetic word for sometime now and they have been a blessing.But this one you just confirmed what the Holy spirit has been telling my spirit man since the month of May began.So you have just spoken straight to my spirit.God bless.

    I just finished reading your dream about Chicago with the t.v. show “Chicago Fire”.

    Don’t know if you watch this show, but I just happen to tune in this week on Wednesday for the final show for the season.

    The show ends with the Captain of the Fire Station 51 getting married. They had the ceremony at the fire station. When all of a sudden they get called out on a fire. They come to a tall rise brick building, and the top two floors have smoke billowing out from it. So the firemen go inside the building. There is little communication between the fire chief on the ground and the men inside due to the structure of the building being all brick. (their walkie-talkies have a hard time with all the brick). All of a sudden there is no communication at all, and the Chief on the ground keeps calling out to his men. There is total silence. Then all of sudden the Chief says to another gentlemen on the ground. “I don’t have a good feeling about this, something is going on”.

    So the other gentlemen puts on what looks to be like a gas mask and as he reaches the building to go inside. All of a sudden, the top of the building blows up. There was no apparent flames of fire before, just smoke.

    The Chief gets knocked to the ground, and that was the end of the show until fall.

    I don’t think this is a coincidence. I just don’t understand what the Lord may be saying here, or if the enemy is trying to stop a movement of God.

    Anyway, thought I would share. It was intriguing to hear your dream, and then actually watch this be the last scene of the season for Chicago Fire.

    I would be interested to hear your take on this.

    Been waiting a long time and have lost almost everything in the waiting. It’s not the things that matter but those I have lost as well. My husband’s mind has slipped and he no longer knows exactly who I am at times. That hurt more than anything yet I know my healer can touch that and suddenly he will be back.
    I will continue to stand and believer and receive….May, Permission Granted!

  11. Rose says:

    It can be hard to WAIT for the ‘suddenlies’. However, the time of waiting is over. Thank you Lord. Blessings are on their way.

  12. ulysses says:

    Both airports were shut down in Chicago due to smoke in one of the air towers. This happened the day before I arrived . May 13

  13. Michelle says:

    WOW…what a confirmation! Love to hear the Lord speak to others as a confirmation of what He’s already told me. Thank you for your faithful ministry!!

  14. Michelle says:

    I also had a Chicago dream recently. The top of one of the tallest buildings suddenly burst into flames, it was the penthouse level where all the executives were. Then through the windows on the floor below it, I watched the Chicago Bulls practicing basketball. I saw someone in the now famous Michael Jordan dunking pose, making a basket and “knew” he and his teammates were about to be engulfed in fire. I don’t fully understand the dream but maybe it’s related?

    • Jeannine Thompson says:

      wow, that’s interesting. Recently the Lord spoke to me
      and said: ” I AM about to shake the doors of every home in America. ” God’s got my full attention. I think it is interesting that you and Doug saw something so similar, i.e. confirmation.

  15. Lisa says:

    Wow!!! For you to prophecy about the wind of change. Someone else spoke about strong west winds awhile back and just last week my son, whose salvation and deliverance I’m praying for, said he dreamed my daughter and I were killed in a tornado – dying to self, maybe?

  16. Yvette says:

    Thank you Doug for this prophetic word. My family has been waiting obediently for a long time for God’s promises to come to pass. We are ready for the sudden shift to spring forth. Blessings to you!

  18. Chris Dillon says:

    Thank you Doug for being faithful to hear and speak what the Lord is saying. This word is confirmation to a number of things the Lord has been telling me too regarding “suddenlies”, being open to new “normals” a spirit of “judgment” which is rampant in the church, the need for “unity” and lastly, the need for each of us to “know” Him, thus knowing His love which is to be our motivation for all we do. Thanks again; this word made my morning!

  19. Dave Carey says:

  21. magalie says:

    Standing in agreement for us to get out of the way and allow the Spirit of God to have His way in every area of our lives.

    It’s time for us to arise in victory in the name of Jesus Christ

  22. latoya says:

    a fire broke out in the bathroom of the airport Chicago o’hare ….Shut everything Down air traffic controllers were at a stand still ..nobody got home that day

  23. Richard says:

    Speaking of “suddenly” and “violent change”, I had a dream a year ago where I stood watching a door that began to glow red, and before I could escape, it exploded! I had never felt such a violent percussion, and thought I must have been injured, but I was not! I have assumed that my door of break-through will open quite violently and suddenly.

  24. Winona says:

    I am so excited about this word and especially Chicago. I live in Virginia but almost 3 years ago God placed it on my heart to pray for Chi and I have been!!!

  25. Jeff P-T says:

    This confirms for us other recent words spoken over us regarding things happening suddenly and quickly. I love confirmations. Amen.

  26. Sandra Clark says:

    Amen! So true! What’s been stirring in my spirt too! We truly need to love one another as Jesus does! Only through Him we can! I am so hungry for fellowship and need other believers in my life. It’s sad that I go to a women’s bible study and a church but have no fellowship outside. Too many clicks and business! God help us! I want to live out Gods will!

  27. RCarter says:

    Very Powerful word from the Lord Prophet! I so blessed to be connected to the anointing you walk in and you man of God. Keep us laughing and inspired with the work God has for your life. May the Lord continue to richly bless you my friend!

  28. Rachel says:

    Thanks Doug for the powerful word for the month of May.
    I have been a candidate of the same and it is just amazing how things have transpired for me in the last three days i.e from 13th of this May to date, it has been sudden changes without warning, literally!! Incidentally I am a May baby and will be celebrating my birthday on the 19th of this month and I recall the Prophetic Word for 2014 given on 7th January on God giving everyone a new gift on their birthday and a greater level of God’s presence. I am really expectant of this present of God’s presnce and like Moses would say “If Your presence does not go with us, bid us not to leave this place. Shalom.

  29. Karen says:

    Wow…my opinions of things have changed over the years…esp in loving others …I welcome change…I was writing in my journal portions of your word Doug…I misspelled denominational with demon…its a shame so much of the body been effected by that…as for me ..I just want to love people and trust God!!!

  30. MaryAnn says:

    Yes Amen. Suddenly it will come new oppurtunity and realignment. Lord has a word of revelation to my mom and said”Be prepared• not too long ago I had the word
    “Be ready ” and “It’s coming, it’s coming”.

  31. Kimberly Hart says:

    I have been waiting a few years for God to fulfill promises he made to me, in the meantime, my family has cone through great trials and been refined through job losses, poverty, eviction, homelessness, our children being separated from us etc. and this gives me hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel and we’re about to turn the corner and enter a new season. I’m waiting in expectation for the blessings to come.

  32. Arnita.kelly says:

    Awesome I had a dream age weeks ago of waving a white flag over our entire congregation then they we covered with a transparent white sheet or something when I look up waving flag it said unity or sign of surrender.

  33. Rebecca says:

    Had a dream a week ago an there was an angel that said to me you will ne shocked at what happens in may. God is awesome

  34. Thanks for that encouraging word. Our online Audio/Video and TV production ministry has also been a pioneer in Internet outreach since 1997. Our heart is to see Revival impact Chicago, and to see thousands saved, delivered and filled with the Holy Spirit. Like many others in this city, we have been on “The front lines” for a long time and have experienced a lot of spiritual warfare along the way, but the Battle is the Lord’s and he gives us the victory every time. Again, thanks for encouraging the troops in the Windy City. I am praying the Lord will use our online radio and tv network to impact many through the Sunlite Broadcasting Network, Chicago

  35. Logan says:

    Hey Doug! I believe I had an experience with the angel you described in this post. Just like you, I was woken from my sleep on May 6th (at around 4AM) with a bright light shining in my room. When I awoke, to my surprise the words “Oh my God” came out of my mouth. Just before this, I was having a dream in which I was saying, “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus” over and over. As I opened my eyes and came to, I saw what appeared to be a white robe flickering in my room. The robe was “fluttering” as if being blown by a violent wind that I couldn’t physically feel around me. This all happened in a matter of 3-4 seconds and the flashing light was only for a split second. If you have any insight concerning my experience I would love to hear it! Blessings.

  36. le king says:

    Just experienced a sudden financial miracle tonight of thousands of dollars. I’ve been feeling the change these past months and esp. these past few days. Harvest is beginning to down pour quickly. God called it ‘due rain’ last night. I’ve been experiencing quantum acceleration since January. I’ve been sowing and expecting a harvest since officially I like to say since 2008. The harvest is now arriving. ‘May Surprises!’

  37. Meechie says:

    Well I was suddenly released from my job…oh by the way I live in Chicago. Not sure what I am suppose to do but, I do know that God is in the midst of it.
