September 12, 2017

This time each year is important because it prophetically sets the course for the upcoming year. It is the time between the Jewish New Year, called Rosh Hashanah (September 21–22, 2017), and the Day of Atonement, called Yom Kippur (September 30, 2017). Even though we are no longer under the Law of Moses, God still operates on the Jewish calendar.

Your book in Heaven reconciled

We are in a time of reaping what was promised to us 2 years ago (and beyond). What has appeared to be a 2-year delay is actually part of God’s plan to strengthen you and align you for this new season.

Then those who feared the Lord talked with each other, and the Lord listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who feared the Lord and honored his name. Malachi 3:16 NIV

God has captured your prayers and tears in a scroll or book of remembrance and these books are now being reconciled in Heaven. God has not forgotten your requests nor the things that He has promised you.

September will be the start of a great reconciliation of things forgotten. This is going to be a rebirthing time for many people. Personal revival and refreshment is coming to those who have persevered through the storm.

“On the day when I act,” says the Lord Almighty, “they will be my treasured possession. I will spare them, just as a father has compassion and spares his son who serves him. And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not. Malachi 3:17–18 NIV

The change that is coming will cause those who love to be promoted to new levels. Loving is God’s greatest commandment and His love is a gift we can give and receive. Many have abandoned love and have allowed hatred to enter their hearts. God is going to bring a change and release new levels of His love for people.

What to expect this year

God is going to reveal to you over the next few months the things you will need for the new year. 2018 is an important year because it is a time of realignment for the coming revival. God is moving on people who have been wounded or rejected by Christianity or considered outcasts by the current church.

There are over a billion people who are ripe and ready for this new move. God is looking for people to lay it all down, just like the early disciples laid down their nets, businesses and families to follow Jesus. God is going to move on people who are willing to step away from older methods that are no longer effective and step into new strategies coming now from Heaven.

Revival of new, not old

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 43:19 NIV

God is releasing something totally new from Heaven. We are about to experience an amazing revival that has been prophesied for decades. The late prophet Bob Jones and others saw a revival coming similar to the Jesus People movement of the 1970s. This movement was offensive to the Church and Christians of that time.

Over one billion people are on the list to be reached by this revival. It will require love and grace to reach those who have been wounded and driven away from God or deeper into darkness. God “is love” and Jesus said that the greatest commandment is to love.

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

1 Corinthians 13:2 NIV

Beware of the recent revival of hatred. Demonic forces of violence and division have been released on the Earth in the past year. This is exactly opposite of what God is about to release. Satan often opposes and tries to stop revivals and moves of God before they come. This has been going on around the world, as a sudden surge of anger and revenge has entered the hearts of many people. But God’s plan is to release a revival of love and grace.

Shaking happening

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:28–29 NIV

God is also shaking things so that your foundation will be firmly established and you will be able to handle the new levels and anointing that are coming to you over the next few months. This is not intended to harm you, but to strengthen and prepare you for some amazing things ahead!

Don’t look at the storm, but keep your eyes on what is coming!

    Amen. Thank you Doug, you spoke into my heart. Thank you it is so encouraging because the last two years was very trying and the last two months is even worse. I am hanging on and pressing in. I do believe Father will breakthrough for me, Amen. Question is. Why is it I just don’t seem to fit in with many groups of people? I feel out of place. Oh God please search me and help me. Bless you Doug.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Josephine. The past two months have been hard for quite a few people, you are not alone. Luckily, things are turning over and we will see changes. I am sorry you feel like you do not fit in many groups of people. I cannot give the exact answers but I can tell you that you must have unique giftings and you are very loved by God. As you continue to ask God what church or group to be with, He will show you. It has taken me a long time as well to find where I belong. Keep searching and trusting that God wants you to find your group of people. Bless you friend!

  2. Gerald says:

    I have been a Christian for a long time and still not sure what’s going on… So I am thankful that God gives you insight… The Church I attend is only partially finished and has been that way for many years..
    This should put the icing on the cake..

  3. Shirley says:

    I pray that it will be soon, we need a financial breakthrough and healing in our body, spirit and soul.
    I need the joy of the Lord in all of this.

  4. Donna Genung says:

    Glory. My friend and I are in the midst of God’s plan. He young anointed singer/guitar player and student of God’s Word and I 40 years older met a year ago at a newly formed outreach for the homeless church. I teach the weekly Bible St to about 25 homeless people. My friend who chose to be homeless is now living with me. We go to nursing homes and play/ sing/pray for the people.
    God has blessed me with dreams/visions/and words over the years so know my friend and I are part of this new movement of God. Just felt God wanted me to share this right now. I thank and praise Him for your ministry and giftings being shared now. Glory to our God and King.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Thank you for sharing Donna. That is so cool! I love that you have that Bible study, what a blessing must be to those around you.

    Shutincaregiver many years pray pray praying isolated yet thankful and grateful to Daddy God! Alongside you guys believing Daddy God’s Will and Ways.
    Part of that faceless “not breaking ranks” of Jesus army.
    Even though some are stuck, pinned down on seemingly every battle front holding ground with little- Micah 2:13
    The breakthrough will come, reinforcements. Like I used to hear folks say….read the back of the book and we win! Jesus Is the Name above all other names. cat

    I am so blessed by Doug and the Ministry that the Lord has given Him to keep the people of God encouraged as well as the world encouraged!

    He is committed to all that the Lord has given Him to do and not afraid of change. That is so refreshing to see in a leader.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Thank you so much Clee. I am so delighted to hear that Doug and his ministry have been a blessing to you. Bless you!

  8. Ed Sanders says:

    Amen, I whole heartedly agree with the word. Let love flow Lord like a mighty river. These disasters will reap unity as the love of Jesus is not only demonstrated but shared with those impacted by the destruction.

  11. Tim E says:

    Doug, thank you so much for posting this. I have been checking your site for updates. Reading your stuff is very encouraging. Shaking started for me in month of Elul. (This is typical.) This week was worst so far. Could be my fault. 🙂 Havn’t slept much in days. Got really angry and must have said some things I shouldn’t have because somehow I bit my tongue and created huge blister. Hurts to move tongue. Whooohoooooo!!! Welcome to earth! 🙂

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Bless you Tim. God is filled with grace and mercy. If we go to Him and ask for forgiveness for mean things we say, He forgives us and makes all things new. You are a loved son of God Tim. <3

    Christ Fullness Of Time: Everything For Him To Shine

    Full moon shines fair against the dark,
    divine breath has left it’s holy mark
    His peace is she, a fruitful witness of His mouth,
    death where is your sting ? where is your drouth ?

    True hope takes on eagle wings,
    bright with breeze, high sunshine sings
    A voice lift up, a dove it’s coney,
    pure yielding honey of highest glory

    Growing confidence like fairy feathers,
    on transformed minds Your raising banners
    The real nectar from the Most High,
    alive in a moment, His Way, it’s nigh !

  16. Lydia Moore says:

    This is amazing! My abusive husband finally left me two years ago. I had delay after delay in getting the divorce finalized. After an amazing string of events, I received my divorce on Tuesday morning. I now have a “re-set.” I am Lydia Neil Moore again for the first time since 1984.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Bless you Lydia. You are a strong woman. Bless you during this time of entering into a new season. God’s got you <3.

  17. Beverly says:

    Thank you for your Word of Prophesy. Having lived through an explosion in my life and going in directions I didn’t understand I had about given up on the blessings promised coming. This gives me renewed hope.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      I am so glad this renewed your hope Beverly. God has so much for you still, even when it seems like He doesn’t. We know God is so good and delights in giving His children gifts. You are one of His children. Bless you <3.

  18. Pastor Dylan says:

    Each time I need to hear what God is saying I usually come read what you write. I remember on 2013/2014 o remember you saying” many of you reading are going to pioneer ministries ” as at the time i was serving as a city branch pastor and wasn’t thinking of venturing out. but by 2014/2015 we birthed a ministry my wife and I since then I have come back time and time again and your prophetic word is always very accurate!
    shockingly I don’t live in the States or Europe I live in Nigeria West Africa and your words always have relevance for us down here too! God bless you Doug be encouraged by the Comforter too!!!

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Woohoo! That is so awesome! God is moving all around the world, its amazing to see what He is doing on every continent. Bless you and your ministry. You are so loved.

  19. Tim Hall says:

    Hi Doug, great broadcast! Just wanted to add a little hopefully helpful info to answer the one lady’s question about how someone who is a practicing LGBT can be filled with the Holy Spirit, let alone be “saved.” It has to do with us all being tri-part beings: spirit, soul, & body. In a nutshell, & this is totally biblical & theologically correct – it is our spirit man that is reborn & that God sees as holy, pure & blameless in His sight. Our soul & body need to be progressively renewed after being born again. Paul said to be transformed by the renewing of our mind.It’s a process that happens from the inside out, not the outside (sinful flesh) in. That’s why Paul made the statement that he & the other disciples (including us today) should no longer judge people by their flesh (what we see going on in the outer man), because God looks upon the heart (or inner man – a more correct translation). This is also why we are told not to judge one another, for only God can judge the heart. So, the tangible evidence of the baptism means that the person accept Jesus as their Savior, and God has applied the blood of Jesus to this person’s heart and declared them no longer guilty, but innocent, just like any other Spirit-filled believer. We are to allow God to work on them from that point, and as for us, it’s hands off! Thank God for His amazing love, forgiveness, mercy & grace that He died to give all men without favoritism. Judging such a person, or any other for that matter, boils down to legalism, or salvation by our own works or efforts. We can’t save ourselves, only God can, and He chooses to based on the same criteria for us all… grace, and grace alone – completely undeserved & unmerited favor & mercy. Praise God, His mercy endures FOREVER. Blessings & hope that’s helpful!

  20. Theresa says:

    Doug, you’re such a blessing. The Lord has used your prophecies, videos and testimony to restore my hope, trust and challenge myself to practice love and kindness. I had a catholic upbringing and difficult relationships so your reminders of God’s goodness and love has helped transform my understanding of Him. This word for September 2017 is especially encouraging and confirms what God has been saying and doing in me. Thank you for your faithful walk with Jesus, and for your laid-down life. May Father God magnify the blessings, revelations, ministry opportunities, and provision for you and your family. I so appreciate you.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Thank you so much Theresa. It is Doug’s pleasure to be able to bless wonderful people like you with encouragement and confirmation as to what God is doing. Bless you and all God is doing in your life.

  21. Trevor says:

    Thanks Doug and team . I receive this word of prophecy in our Lord Jesus Christ. All glory be to The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit.

  22. Ashley says:

    Thank you so much for your faithfulness in delivering hope and insight. I have a question I would really appreciate help with. Can you explain about what the “shaking” may look like, and if I’ve barely been hanging on to the Lord, could it all be a waste and I totally miss anything God has for me? This year has consisted of so much pain and chaos, and it has really felt like my sanity and more is being challenged almost every day. I’ve gone from previous years of experiencing mountain top experiences with the Lord even through great trials, but if I feel like if I have failed in being strong in the Lord through it all this year, any thoughts about redemption in anointing or new levels….

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Ashley. It has been a really hard year for many people, so I want you to know you are not alone. You didn’t miss it because you’re even writing this with a heart to be closer to God. Shaking can be the trials you are going through that God see’s and knows they are going to make you stronger and closer to Him. Though it may seem you are barley hanging on, you still are hanging on. Delight in the fact that you haven’t quit and God has got you no matter what the circumstances look like. Bless you Ashley, you are strong and brave.

  23. Maya says:

    Hi there Ashley and Nikki,
    I really felt moved by your response to Ashley Nikki and writing reply on things like this is not really what I do but I want to say that I totally understand how you feel Ashley and this is what God has shown me. I have felt the same that I have preserved in the past buy this 2as to much and such a deep sense of discouragement and hopelessness despair. BUT this is the exact opposite of what God says! Matthew 12:20-21 “a bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out, till he leads justice to victory. In his name the nation’s will put their hope”
    Philippians 1:6 “For I am confident that who who began a good work in you (ashley) will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus”
    ANY teaching that does not bring hope is not from God. Even in these perilous times in the world, His faithful word and the power of His salvation in our lives is greater.

    “God uses all things for the good of those who love him.” I love how Nikki said you obviously have not let go as your still here. So true. I see God residing your right like he’s restoring mine. There’s so much I could share with you but I just wanted to encourage you you will be Ok, more than ok…. bless you. Maya

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Awesome Maya! Thank you for sharing those wonderful verses. What great words to meditate on when times are difficult. Bless you <3.

  24. Patricia Owens says:

    Hello #DougAddison & #TeamDoug. Very much appreciate this breakdown of The Open Books during Rosh Hashannah & Yom Kippur. Because we’ve been following you for years, I look forward to this time and season to get back on focus & to get realigned with The Heavenly’s . Now I share this with friends who haven’t heard & need biblical understanding for I don’t want them missing out on the awesome blessings God have for us & to something they could look forward to as well. Side Note, I have to Learn Not to be Disappointed to those who are ignorant to facts, Not take it Personal, asking myself , Why Don’t You Know This, because, only a select few have the opportunity, to be set aside, to sit and listen, to an awesome teacher like Doug Addison, John Paul Jackson and others… That we can take this word and share it with the world! Thank you Doug Addison for dedicating your life, to this call, that we can learn and share it with others ,The Love of Jesus Christ We love you! ❤❤❤

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Woohoo! Thank you Patricia for your kind words! I love your point about not everyone having time to set aside to listen to speakers like you might. That is so good to know and understand. We are blessed to be able to listen to Doug and John Paul Jackson, but many do not have a lifestyle where they can do that as often as we can. I applaud you for having a sensitive heart and sharing your knowledge with those who may know yet know. Bless you Patricia!
