Revelation is now flowing

You may have already heard me talk about this, but here is an update. God said to get ready to receive a lot of revelation! It started last month during Passover and has not stopped.

The heavens are now open greater than anything we have ever seen. I have needed to use dictation software on my computer because what God is speaking is flowing in such detail, I am not able to capture it all while typing.

I have been having 2–3 hour heavenly encounters each day for over 3 weeks! Most of it has to do with the coming “Great Revival,” as it is known in Heaven.

I want to share some excerpts from my Heavenly Journal with you from April 28. In this, there is a small portion where the Lord showed me what is happening in Heaven with those who are praying:

My encounter in Heaven

[Beginning of Encounter.] I was taken into Heaven, and in a vision I saw a place where prophetic revelation was flowing from Heaven to Earth. It was not just going to prophets, but to people everywhere.

People were receiving it through different means, which seemed to be unique for each person. I saw revelation coming to people through dreams and visions and others through the Bible. One area was dedicated to sending revelation to the intercessors who would pray over it.

Prophetic intercessors

I noticed that the majority of revelation coming from here was going to prophetic intercessors. Many of them did not recognize that they were receiving high-level prophetic insight from Heaven and that they were part of a well-planned and organized network helping sustain the world.

The Lord was sending His revelation to those who would listen and pray. I was watching on several three-dimensional video screens as this was happening. I saw lights over certain cities and homes and knew they were all strategic in this process.


I saw on maps that had positioned Ezekiel 33 watchmen all over the place. The majority of these were women and they did not have a title or recognition of authority on Earth. But they were ordained by the Lord to keep watch for the attacks of the enemy and listen for strategies from Heaven to stop these attacks and disasters.

These watchers had angels assigned to them and moved in great authority in prayer. I was able to read the profiles of some of these strategic watchmen. Sadly, leaders had rejected most of them. God was still using them, though, and they were being credited for stopping terrorism, accidents and destruction from coming on people.

“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me.” Ezekiel 3:17 NIV

The watchmen seemed to have greater authority than the prophetic intercessors, but they were all one in the Spirit. They were the ones who would receive revelation from God and tell other intercessors about it.

These watchmen had all walked through the fire of testing by the Lord. In order to carry their authority, they could not have pride or selfish ambition. I could see that many of them had laid down everything to walk in this lowly position on Earth. But it was a position highly regarded in Heaven. [End of encounter.]

I hope this encourages you when you pray. Your prayers matter and God is using you strategically, even if you are not aware of it.

    Thank you Lord for preventing Sacramento from being terrorized. And uncovering terrorist activities and destroying evil plots against Sacramento. Thank you for Doug Addison’s prophetic words which has encouraged me that I am one of the watchmen you have ordained me to be at this dark hour in time. Bless and protect Doug Addison and his family and everything they own and his finances and bless them with newfound supernatural health and strength for the coming of the great revival. No weapon formed against shall prosper in Jesus name amen.

    Thank you for this encouragement! I “sense” more from a heavenly perspective. I sometimes literally feel the wind even though I’m inside. I’ve also had a very detailed dream of an Army of women,arrayed in brilliant white garments, and three rows across, marching with purpose toward their destiny. I’m excited and expecting God! Mighty blessings to you Sir and your team

    I agree totally the prophecy is true, its a confirmation.in January a prophet of God here in Kenya spoke about The book of Ezekiel where we have been called to pray & be watchmen. Just yesterday I got a word asking me to go deeper in prayers, psalms 20 has been a song in my mouth though I had not noticed its start with May & we are in the month of May.My prayer that God almighty to remember me I have been in the purpose & financial wilderness for long, my self esteem is at zero,no confidence but still holding on that God remember me tonight, I can’t wait anymore I need God. Pray with me man of God.Thank you,Beatrice!

  6. Nelly says:

    Thank you for this encouragement. At the beginning of this year the Lord called me to be a watchman and watch for my nation that is in an elections season through a prophetic word from a prophet in my country. Many have heeded to this call and are interceeding at the mid night hour. My grandmother and I have taken the call and I thank God for his favour. It has not been without tests, trials and tribulations but victory belongs to those called by God and according to his higher purposes.

    stay blessed

    • Admin Nikki says:

      Wow Nelly, how cool. I love how you are partnering with your grandmother, that is so beautiful and special.

      Thank you for praying the nation, we need people like you to do so.

      Bless all God is doing in your life!

    Revelation as it is written: Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

    Unfortunately Salvation is accredited to the LORD and when you say, you ascend into heaven, and also descend back to earth, what does that really mean? This is what the LORD said while He was here:
    And no man hath ascended up to Heaven, but He that came down from Heaven, even the Son of Man who is in Heaven.
    The Almighty King of kings said this: This is what the LORD says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place be?, So His thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are not our ways. This Gospel cannot be altered or even brought with anything. If you really are in the LORD, then be not carried away with the current of foolishness, because the LORD cannot be mocked.

      Hi Karen, Thanks for commenting on Doug’s post. Yes, always test everything against God’s word. It is hard to try to explain a heavenly encounter in words 🙂 God bless you! Pam, InLight Connection
