Prophetic Word: Don’t Hold Back
April 30, 2015
Have you heard prophetic words and messages floating around about the U.S. or world economies crashing? Are you wondering if it is okay to make plans or investments? Listen to what God has been speaking to me and many others about this very subject.
Don’t hold back
I have heard so many people say that they are holding back on decisions, buying houses, moving, taking jobs etc., because they believe the economy is going to crash. That kind of thinking is usually motivated by fear and will actually cause things to crash in your life. This is a time to step out in faith.
There is a difference between fear and wisdom. When you are motivated by fear you will not have a plan. This can cause you to hesitate or hold back and possibly miss God’s timing. There are times that you may need to use wisdom and put things on hold. But this usually comes with peace (not fear) and God confirms it with a plan or solution.
I live on a fault line
God called us to live in Los Angeles in the midst of all the negative prophecies that California would one day fall into the ocean. My office is in Venice, California and I drive by a sign every day that says, “Entering Tsunami Hazard Zone.” I am not fearful at all because the safest place for you to be is the place God calls you to. Just your presence in a place can shift the spiritual atmosphere and change the course of history.
God is looking for people to be world changers who will boldly stand in the gap for justice and mercy. Jesus prayed, “On earth as is it in Heaven.” We need to come into agreement with God’s plans of revival and restoration.
Seven years of blessings
Last January I released the prophetic words God gave me for the year 2015. One of the words that is important to pay attention to is the seven years of blessing we are now entering.
We are now in a strategic time of God repaying us for losses in our lives. We have entered into a seven-year time of mercy and blessings from 2015–2022. Again, this does not mean that we will not see disasters or have difficult times, but God’s mercy is going to triumph over judgment.
“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.” Isaiah 60:1 NIV
It truly is a year of breakthrough for us all and I will say it again: God has issued a new seven-year season of blessing from 2015–2022. For the most part, it is the result of the prophetic intercessors crying out for mercy. In place of prophetic words of judgment that have been spoken, for the next seven years God is releasing the fulfillment of prophetic words that are based in revival and blessing. This does not mean that the world will end after 2022.
You will see many of your personal promises fulfilled over the next seven years as well.
Realignment is important
Realigning into the right place to receive God’s blessing is important. You may need to make a shift in associations to get out of limiting situations. This might be with people, organizations, geographic places or jobs. Many people have been under a condition of spiritual confinement. Some of you have been negatively influenced by people around you, and that has prevented you from moving forward. As you take steps you will see shackles fall off and new freedom emerge.
So use wisdom but don’t hold back due to fear. As you seek God for your plans of breakthrough you will be surprised by the new levels of favor and your rapid advancement.
This is a time of repayment so don’t hold back or hide! Plan long, be wise and move forward.
