This Sunday is when we celebrate Pentecost, to remember the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the early Church, just as Jesus promised.

And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.” Acts 2:2 NIV

God spoke to me that this week will be a time of “things happening suddenly.” Expect to see sudden changes, sudden acceleration, sudden surprises, blessings, and more. This is all designed to align you with the next season of your life.

Major wind of change

“And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language.” Acts 2:6 NIV

Just as in Acts 2, there is a new wind and sound coming from Heaven right now.
New revelation that might seem confusing at first will flow freely as God speaks to each of us. This is because it might be outside of your comfort zone. The result will be a deeper understanding and change of direction.

New alliances will form
The new wind from Heaven in Acts 2 brought new people groups together. People are going to be drawn to this shift in the spiritual realm. As God begins to speak at a deeper level, you may find yourself needing to explain to others what is happening.

“ … The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation. I am the Lord; in its time I will do this swiftly.” Isaiah 60:22 NIV

God is gathering small groups together to do something great. It is important to be aligned in the right place, at the right time and with the right people for the second half of the year.

Get ready to receive
Prepare yourself by being aware of it. For some it might be subtle and others will have a more dramatic encounter. Either way, a new sound and wind of the Spirit is coming this week.

    Doug, God bless you! I so receive this prophetic word God has given you. I thank God for you and your ministry.

  2. Mark says:

    Sunday night it felt like I only laid down my head and woke up 5 minutes later. In reality I slept 6 hours. I woke up with such peace and joy. It felt like I was taken up to heaven while I slept. I don’t remember any of it but a major shift happened in my life after it.

    • josh says:

      I’m not Doug but feel that Jesus is saying to you that He is your fortress! Fruitfulness will come from inside the gates. Just rest and relax in Him, do all things from Him, with Him and IN Him! The Spirit lifts us effortlessly! May you know His love, intimacy, affection and peace right now in Jesus’ wonderfully mighty name!

    Tonight marks a launch of our house church and we have many nations that are gathering and are committed as the family of Christ to dive into this kingdom relationship. I am actually leading our worship and am very excited about the new “sound” God is releasing in this hour. Glory be to the King and bless you brother!

  11. Lisa says:

    Thank you Doug, I got two “good reports” today, that actually happened very suddenly two days ago as worrisome news. I love how God makes things right, and shows His goodness.

  12. Cindy says:

    Doug I love reading your prophetic words and truly admire your anointing. My question is, how am I supposed to feel if God does not orchestrate a “suddenly” in my life? What if I am a faithful worshipper but I get left behind this movement of God?

  13. Gaylen says:

    I receive this as I am applying to other positions and am waiting for the interviews. God knows what is the best for me and I need it done before the 10th , so that I can visit my family in Washington. Thank you, LORD.

    I have been hearing Him tell me yesterday and today to align myself with His plans and purposes. He told me I will see a turnaround in a personal situation by this weekend. Praise the Lord. I receive it in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

    Sudden is used manytimes in the bible and am ready to receive my in Jesus name and thank you for the confirmation

  22. Cindy Davis says:

    Whoa…my spirit bears witness to this word!!! Last week here in the Houston area we had a major wind come into an existing storm in which the atmosphere turned completely gray & you couldn’t see. The trees were bending over to almost touch the ground…immediately in my spirit were the words “WINDS OF CHANGE”. It only lasted for like a minute, but I got the message. God is so good to give us word ahead of time!!!! He is GOOD!!!!! \o/

  23. Brad says:

    I was working on writing down some of the things God has done for us. As I am writing I keep using the word “suddenly.” It seems like I needed to put the work suddenly in every sentence. I caught myself and decided that would be overdoing it. After reading your word I can see why the word “suddenly” was in my spirit. Go God, Go Suddenlies!

  24. Diana says:


  25. Patty says:

    AMEN !!!! I’m on Fire !!! I was talking with my ENT Dr. on Fri. last week .I just asked Him if he had heard about the Band U2 ? And he said one of my favorite Bands. Then all of sudden I said “Did you know they are Christians?” Then my Dr. said to me “Are you a Christian?” I said YES !!!! HE SAID ME TOO!!! We gave each other a high five. And his wife also ministery at the Uof A and their Daughter goes to a Billy Graham college where Bono has spoke many times. I almost started crying. I’ve been his patient since 2004.THANKYOU JESUS !!!!

  26. Denise says:

  27. Adi Alumita says:

    I thank GOD that this week He is giving me new revelation in His Word and most of the time i just cry because God is so real to me like i feel like hugging Him ….oooh GOd is Mighty.

  28. Irene Lapalombara says:

    Waiting expectantly! I am so ready, this is one of my favorite feasts of the church, so good thank you.

  29. Toni says:

    Doug, our Pastor gave us a word from God on December 28. 2014 for 2015 ….”Suddenlies.” He heard the sound of a might rushing wind — 7 years of plenty and that there would be 7 suddenlies within our congregation within 49 days and there were! The sound has changed from “warfare” to the sound of blessing. And now you are saying “suddenly,” and we are now in 2015. Wow and the year is not over yet. Isaiah 40:2…by His Spirit. God Bless You and your family.

  30. Melissa Severino says:

    It’s time, my LORD! My husband & I are expecting major financial breakthrough!THANK YOU JESUS!GOD bless you Doug!

  31. Barbara says:

    Praise the Lord. Thank you Doug for this prophetic word. I believe and receive it. Yesterday morning the song “Thank you Lord” was playing in my spirit so much until i broke out in tongues/praise. i began to think about Paul and Silas and what happened when they began to praise God in the jail cell. You are truly a man/prophet of God if there ever were one. I truly thank God for you. I pray that God’s presence and favor continues to be in and with you as you continue to walk in obedience to His word and will for your life.

  32. Nethani says:

    The wind of the Spirit touched my left hand as I prayed yesterday. The Lord revealed to me that this will be a time of great download of strength from the Lord. He showed me a lighthouse, the waves of ocean are crashing over the lighthouse, but the lighthouse becomes even stronger as the wind from all that exerted motion of waves begins rushing through the inward part of the lighthouse. And I saw the Lord standing in there, in the lighthouse, smiling and reminding me of His victory, and that His victory is gonna move our lives like a mighty rushing wind in this season! Be prepared to move and change as the Spirit falls upon you! Praise God!

  33. Arnold Stallings says:

    Thanks Doug, I am really enjoying your prophetic word.
    I’ve been searching for a prophet like u for sometime now.
    Blessings to you!

  34. Lori says:

    Awesome word! I experienced in the natural the wind that you talk about. As I open my door one day this week to go in my house a gush of wind blew over me. I do have windows open and maybe wind came through them. But I see it as a sign from heaven. My husband also felt it. We have been a part of a small group And been believing for us to do great things.

  35. Becky says:

    Thank You Lord! I am excited to see what the Lord is going to do. May He richly bless each and every one of you and your families. May He draw more people near to Him at this time. Revival!

  36. Julie says:

    “Acts 2 brought new people groups together. God is gathering small groups together to do something great.” This is SO TRUE! A small group of us just received impartation on Mon. and Tues from the Nat’l Directors of the Healing Rooms, and we plan to partner w/ Holy Spirit to open up the H. Rooms in our community! All Glory to Jesus!!!

  37. William Goodman says:

    God the Holy Spirit gave me the assignment of teaching on the outpouring and ministry of God the Holy Spirit in the earth right after Resurrection Sunday, April 5, 2015. He revealed these days leading up to Pentecost Sunday would be a time of great preparation for this third great awakening of the outpouring of God the Holy Spirit in the earth. Our LORD Jesus breathed upon His disciples and said, “Receive Ye the Holy Spirit”! John 20: 21, 22, 23. He declared over them the Baptism of God the Holy Spirit! He was poured out upon them “suddenly” when the day of Pentecost came. I’m excited in anticipation of what God will do suddenly this Sunday! Hallelujah!

  38. Christina says:

    Bless you Doug!!! This has completely resonated with everything I’ve felt the Lord saying too. Such an encouragement.

  39. angie says:

    I received same impression in my spirit last week, it had to do with God releasing a new sound in worship, in his,word and we must have ears to hear. This sound will also come out from us in declaring and releasing the sound in heaven on earth. Breakthrough, revival in the church and many that have gone astray will return, they will hear the sound of heaven . Hallelujah!

  40. Lisa says:

    At the beginning of May something amazing happened for my husband and myself. I’m praying specifically for God to move quickly in another area☺. This gives me hope this is His timing.

  41. Gina Reavis says:

    God’s word is always on time! Just recently, the Father spoke to me and said, “I am a Father of surprises. Get ready!” Wow! Love hearing his word confirmed over and over again.

  42. Bob Sr. says:

    The Father says today; I will proclaim the proclamation to you, that which I’m doing in the earth! You’ve asked, “Father what is it that your heart is bringing about in this hour?” I declare to you, it is PRECISELY THE PROPHETIC! You’ve asked, and you’ve inquired. You looked into my purposes and said, “Father show me your ways!” Others have been content to simply be the beneficiaries of my acts, – BUT you are one who has cried out for the deeper verities. Therefore, the Father says, I’m bringing you this day into a “deep calleth to deep” experience. I’m stripping away the wisdom of the world and the illegitimate authority of religious mentalities who falsely think they are the arbiters of all things that pertain to my kingdom.
    I am standing up to demonstrate in the earth, says the Father. I am attesting, even as My word declares in Rev. 19:10, that my testimony is expressed and made known in the spirit of prophecy. So receive this day a fresh impartation of my prophetic spirit. Open your mouth boldly, let your words come forth as fire to destroy the works of the evil one. It is a new day, says the Father, and you are ordained and destined to be a participator in that which I’m doing. I call you, first partaker, says the Father, so open your heart and open your mouth and receive of my hand that which is being poured out in this hour for your benefit.

      Hi Renier,
      I too have been given a vision for a strategic business during this season. There are others who are also being “called up” by the Spirit to prepare…of course a lot of us are saying, “Lord for what?” we want to know the big picture but honestly the Lord keeps saying ‘step-by-step.’ I don’t have your answer but wanted you to know there are others out in the same situation. Take heart. Doug’s advice is really good and I am going to follow. Also an intercessor told me that my plan needs intercessors. Just a thought. Praying this mighty wind brings in partners for you.

  43. Renier says:


    I thank the Father for you daily; that there is a lamnent of prophetic voices that proclaim the Truth without regard to self or person!

    I’ve been greatly blessed by your daily prophetic words: some are in season, others are whispered to me to be put aside for another season. Thus, I can say that indirectly Father has been using you to teach me greater discernment on times and seasons in my life. My spirit bursts into song when the witness gives testimony that it’s a ‘now word.’ I’ve personally been seeking and praying for a big breakthrough for the last 4 years.

    With choices being made I’ve closed myself off from a lot of things around me, but I’ve received the understanding on how merciful Father has been to me in this time with great impartation of vision and understanding and also broadening my understanding of the greater vision He predestined moving forwards.

    With that said, I’m in need of guidance: I’ve been asking the Father for His guidance and wisdom with regards to the vision I’ve received. What my vision entails is offering safety and security to people and organizations in high-risk places. Thus, my organization will accompany an aid organization in to a territory known for radicalism and terrorism and will offer them security and safe-keeping.

    I’ve written down my vision in such a manner that its pretty clear for the next 17 years with our business model following a completely different approach that normally used (laying our own foundation and not building on the one someone else has laid).

    My biggest question though is is still that I need confirmation on the vision. For the past 4 months I’ve been seeking strategic partnerships, and have faced only closed doors. I’ve prayed and asked God for guidance and have tried to be extremely sensitive to the nudges coming my way. When there’s new insight, I’ve followed it and acted accordingly. This has been a discouraging experience to say the least, but perseverance builds faith and character.

    All I’m desiring is the peace that this vision is off God, and if it is, that the Father would confirm it. And if its not, that I would take my camp and follow the Spirit elsewhere.

    Please keep us in prayer. We greatly desire the greater things, but also the humility to not despise the day of small things.

    In peace,

    • Doug Addison says:

      What you are pursuing is something that will need lots of intercession to accomplish. Raise up more prayer and see if the doors open then. It is common to take time breakthrough to something new. I have been working at it for years if not decades for some of the words God has given me.

    • eve wallis says:

      All these words The LORD has been speaking to me also..the wind, step by step, suddenly, wait ,Is 61, deep calls to deep…and training. He spoke loudly one day after a disturbing encounter where I felt like I really blew it and on the drive home He said” I am training you to listen to My Spirit ,for the days to come you will need to be finely tuned in.” ♡ Last summer He said “Nothing is wasted,all these things are something.” ..all things for His Glory. And the year before” I Am training you to feel .”(be tuned in, keenly aware of what is happening around you.)
      Blessing,will be lifting you in prayer. Don’t worry. Rev3:8

  44. david meng says:

    Thanks Doug, Amen to your prophetic word for May 20th, i recieve it and Amen. As time is entering to the Sivan month and leading to Pentecost Sunday, things are happening suddenly for God is doing a new thing, strange and wondrous work and glorious salvation. I will rejoice in your salvation, and may the Lord grant all your petitions (psalm 20:5). Thanks Doug for the prophetic word each day. may the Lord bless your ministry and your family.

  45. Ilse Kampman says:

    I receive this prophecy with gladness in my heart and I am exited for new things to come, new and mighty things the Holy Spirit will reveal to us. God bless you Doug

  46. Frances says:

    Doug, this is wonderful. I have been getting little confirmations that there will be major changes. I wasn’t really sure what it meant, and wasn’t 100% sure if I was reading things right. Wow, with this post of yours it makes me that much more excited and open to what God has in store for us. Thank-you for your faithfulness to God and being willing to do His will in your posts and all you do.

  47. Emelyne says:

    This is awesome. On Tuesday, something happened suddenly with regards to my calling. God just put magnifying glasses on my eyes to see it more clearly than ever before. A 1h meeting with my business coach just changed the course of my life.

  48. susan says:

    I just sense God calling the remnant out of the remnant – some may feel God has forgotten them but actually He was preparing them in secret for this prophetic word to be fulfilled and manifested!

  49. Pearline Lorna Clyne says:

    This is an awesome stirring time for all those who are beleiving in God and awaiting Christ return. The King of Glory is preparing and alligning His people for His appearance. In the interim there will be a return of signs, wonders & miracles breaking out. The saints are being gathered together to let His kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.

  50. Natalie Bowers says:

    A few days before this prophetic message. I had a dream that I was sitting with my step father playing a chess game when we were suddenly surprised by a mighty wind that was so strong it blew us out of the house. I truly believe this is confirmation

    • Nelao says:

      Thank you man of God for your obefience, We give all Honour and Glory to Daddy/God the Father.

      What another confirmation 20th 1st morning wind, and 21 had our 2nd morning wind and it went away. And is winter here. The same day 21 May i had a dream and it rained in this dream, i received keys in this dream to a place i have lived before and moved about 8-7 years ago, but i was on ground floor before but this time i got keys for the upstairs one. Down at parking i found it dirty and was telling a cousin who lives there we wmust get a hosepipe to clean wash and he was excited as he know were to get plants and we will make the parking like a garden after cleaning. In the flat i was to go was a man who must still move out crowded by many young women and went back to tell them is time to get out my things are here. Anyone with dream interpretation idea feel free to share and pray with me. Email me:

  51. vincent says:

    Very true man of God. For the past few days i have been feeling it in my spirit. Yesterday we felt led as a family to have holy communion and i felt a voice saying “crossing over” repeatedly.
    Yes there is a new shift in the spirit and great and mighty changes are gonna take place both at individual, and societal levels

  52. Jan says:

    I appreciate this Word from the Lord! I had been seeking the Lord on how to pray for certain situations happening around the world and “suddenly” I saw the answer at the end of your blog – the number “94”. I immediately began to pray Psalm 94! Such revelation and a great peace filled the room. May Father continue to bless your ministry.

    On May 12th we went downtown to the Capitol (Washington DC) for a political event. When we left late that evening there was an incredible wind blowing through the city. The air was dense and thick and swirling in huge clouds like a sandstorm – the same type that hits Dubai and other sand-laden lands. Where did it come from? I have lived here over 20 years and NEVER EVER seen debris clouds and powerful wind like that. Lord, let it be your wind of sudden change in our Capitol! ! Thank you Doug for your faithful words and your encouragement to listen to the Lord!

  55. Cynthia Duke says:

    Prayer Request-the Duke family is believing for a “suddenly” in the sale of our home. My husband began his new position in Birmingham Al 4/6/2015. The children and I have stayed behind to finish school and sell our home. We get out June 13th once my son graduates high school. We’re believing for a contract by June 12,2015 please believe with me. Thank you

    • Jason Hooper says:

      Hey Cynthia,

      My name is Jason Hooper and I Pastor King’s Way Church ( in Birmingham, AL. I just wanted to let you know that we will be praying for the quick and “sudden” sale of your house. I also wanted to see if there is anything that we can do to be a support or encouragement to your husband in the midst of this time of transition. Lord bless you!

  56. Arnold Stauffer says:

    Would you explain the meaning of this dream? My wife and I were wallking. I was about to turn right and walk on a well used path next to a building. She wanted to turn left and walk along a higher and very narrow path atop a ridge of clay. I told her it was dangerous, but she went anyway. I continued walking and then turned back and noticed she had disappeared. I went back and found she had slipped off the path down about 20 feet. She was laying on her back with her body sloped downward, her head the lowest. Her eyes were closed. I went down the slope to help her. About then I woke up. Does this dream have any special meaning?
