Expect to see lots of dreams and visions throughout the month of October. The heavens are open for revelation and God is imparting what you need for the upcoming season. Plans and strategies are flowing for you to recover your losses from the past. Repayment is coming, so get ready to receive it.
I want to encourage you to not be afraid or worry about how things look. God is still in charge and He is not causing tragedies and difficult times. They are coming from the enemy, who wants to distract us from the coming revival and great blessings.
Yes, these are difficult times, but stay in prayer and worship, focus on God and refrain from complaining and being fearful. Things are going to shift for you very soon.
Though you probe my heart, though you examine me at night and test me, you will find that I have planned no evil; my mouth has not transgressed. Psalm 17:3 NIV
We need to be very careful how we speak, as the Lord is examining our lives right now for the purposes of promotion. It is important to step away from speaking anything that brings division or lacks love and encouragement.
I asked God why we are seeing such fierce storms, shaking and violence. He told me that it has to do with the negative whirlwind that is alive and active in the hearts of many people right now. It is also delaying revival and closing the heavens for blessings.
They sow the wind and reap the whirlwind. The stalk has no head; it will produce no flour. Were it to yield grain, foreigners would swallow it up. Hosea 8:7 NIV
The Lord said, “My people are complaining and sowing anger and taking up causes that are their own and not mine. They are coming into agreement with the voice of the accuser and with the spirit and fruit of darkness. I have called them to speak words of life. This is why there are such violent outbreaks all around the world. And also, why the harvest has not taken place.”
In Hosea 8:7, the Hebrew word for wind is rûach, also translated as anger. Many people have been sowing in anger, frustration, rebellion and revenge. This spirit is now trying to take over in the hearts of many Christians who have an assignment to carry the words of life and not the words of the angry wind.
God is calling us away from idle arguments and divisions and to focus our efforts on His agenda and things that matter the most. This is a time to rally together in intercession and bless people who we do not agree with. We must love our enemies and pray for those we feel are persecuting us or our beliefs. This includes political and social justice causes, as well as religious and spiritual. There is power in agreement.
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. Matthew 5:44 NIV
Many people have lost their authority in prayer because they are coming into agreement with the accuser of our brothers and sisters (Revelation 12:10).
I want you to do a check in your life right now. What is the fruit you are seeing in your life? Are you seeing answered prayers, financial blessings, people coming to the Lord or coming to you to hear His wisdom? Or are you seeing the opposite? If you are experiencing the latter, then there’s a good chance you need to shift your focus to God’s agenda and not complain and argue with others over your cause or opinion.
This next revival will require a lot of finances. Because of the tragedies happening all over the world, we need resources and money for humanitarian purposes. We will also need to finance some of the largest revival meetings we have ever seen.
These will not look like what we currently see inside of the church. I have seen glimpses of them in my interactions with Heaven, and I don’t know exactly what it will look like—except it will be strange and geared towards people who the current church may not accept.
This is all the more reason we will need finances! God said that He is now answering prayers that many Christians have been praying for years.
… But the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous. Proverbs 13:22 NKJV
Many people have been praying this prayer, not realizing that the Lord is trying to answer it. But first He must rid us of anything that is in the same spirit as the world.
God is now shaking things in your life, family, businesses and churches. He’s doing this to get our attention and cause us to focus on the business of God’s Kingdom and not on the world around us. This is why there is such a great shaking happening everywhere. The shaking is not judgment!
Get ready to cross into the new year with a new perspective! God is for you and has not forgotten you!
