Prophetic Word: What We Need to Do to Stop This Angry Whirlwind

   Bookmark and Share

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.

Complaining can create a whirlwind

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

Word of the Lord

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.

Stop complaining

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.

Transfer of wealth coming

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!

  4. ALAN BOWMAN says:

    Dear Doug , on the 6 October 17 I dream that I was to preach outside in the country . I decided to preach about the prophetic ministry and people being call ed to the office of a prophet . When I started a whirlwind rose up and I couldn`t turn my bible pages to Jeremiah and Ezekiel as planned . Because the wind was too strong . instead I had to preach from my heart and throw my unopened bible to one side . I had no microphone and had to shout above the whirlwind . People were not interested or didn`t listen . The dream continued and i saw a married couple both called to the prophetic office together . They were both afraid of the prophetic and like others very unsure about trusting in a prophetic ministry . But the dream ended that the Holy Spirit released them into confidence and they started prophesying . Quite a dream I thought . I shared in a christian Facebook group saying that I felt that there was a spirit of opposition that would try and rise against the prophetic but God would help us win through so we needed to hold fast and be encouraged . What you say here about our negative words can cause us to take sides with the accuser and be like a whirlwind made me sit up at once because I have often been aware of undertones from christians against the prophetic and the office of the prophet .. in line with the accuser . I`ll put a guard over my own mouth too . Many thanks for this word you gave . blessings , Alan Bowman

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Wow! What an incredible dream! Thank you for sharing that with us. Yes, putting a guard around our own mouths first is what will bring change because then the atmosphere will change around us. Bless you Alan!

  5. That is really an answer to what He has had me interceding for these last months. Thank you for your sensitivity to the Father and the leading of His Spirit for His people like me- I needed this Doug! Bless you brother man🙏

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Awesome William! I am so glad you enjoyed the post and that it provided you with more clarity. Bless you!

  6. Elece says:

    Hi Doug! I love reading your blogs they have helped me so much! My question is how can I bring someone to God that is battling cancer, divorced and having finiancial difficulties? How can he be healed of this cancer?

  7. MzMolly says:

    I started praying “transfer of wealth” about a month ago and immediately got a promotion and increase in pay. This post today reminded me that He is not done in this area, I will continue to pray. Thanks for the encouragement.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Praise God! That is amazing! You are right, God is not done, He is on the move! Bless you Molly!

  8. Yvette says:

    This is a powerful word. Recently, during the month of Elul, I spent time repenting and examining myself. This word confirms what the Lord revealed to me. He wants to promote us and He wants us to be ready. He wants us to come into full agreement with Him and put away all malice, hatred, anger, strife, division, dishonor, bitterness and the foolish ways of the world. Instead He wants us to walk in the fruit of The Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, self-control). I believe that when we come into full agreement with Him, and stay positioned, our promotions will come bursting forth. Thanks Doug for this much needed word for the Body!!!

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Yes Yvette! You are absolutely right! Thank you for sharing your revelation with us. Bless you!

  9. Evangelist Gail McGill Tate says:

    My sister in the ministry always sends me Pastor Doug’s Prophetic Word. I would like to receive it directly on the email address below.
    God’s Richest Blessings be upon Pastor Doug, His ministry and His family as I believe the Lord truly uses Him to speak to His people!

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hello Gail! How wonderful! I have added you to the Daily Prophetic Word email listing and sent you today’s. Enjoy them!

  10. Astrid M Sherriff says:

    it is awesome is giving me a lot of wisdom and encouragement in trials I’ve been facing for the past 3 months

  11. Dean Ollikkala says:

    There is one large segment of people whom the general church has rejected- believers who find themselves in the business world. The only thing I’ve ever seen that attracts persecution more violently than a believer walking in Heaven’s Power is a believer who walks in Heaven’s favor in finances, & it comes from both the church & the world. The Father did tell me recently, “there are a few that will finance what’s coming.” I have the feeling it’s a road that leads away from the church folks that wait for the Father to give them the substance of what they ask while others receive the means to bring in what the Father wants.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Thanks for sharing with us Dean. We are excited to see what God is going to be doing during this time with pouring out financial blessings on those who will help enhance the Kingdom. What a great time we live in! Bless you Dean!

  12. Jimmie and Hattie Booker says:

    We love it. These are words we have been telling those in our sphere of influence. We must align with the truth of God in this season. We must be truth bearer.

    Thanks so much for continually encouraging us to be strong in the LORD and let His words dwell in us richly to avoid those storms.Watch what we say is of great important in this hour.
    Thanks for bringing clarity to us all in your prophetic words.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Yes Hattie and Jimmie! We must be watching what we say and speaking life, even when it is hard to do. Bless you both!

  13. Jimmie and Hattie Booker says:

    Great word for the saints of today. Thanks for shining the light on a much area of great concern for the church.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      I’m glad you enjoyed it Jimmie and Hattie. You are so welcome! It is Doug’s pleasure to be able to deliver prophetic words to help us all grow closer to knowing God. Bless you both!

  14. Sean Turner says:

    Hi, this is Sean. I was praying earlier and God gave me 2 chronicles 2:9 “An immense amount of timber will be needed, for the temple I am going to build will be very large and magnificent.” Thought it was neat as it kinda goes along with Doug’s message.

  15. LuAnna L Oliver says:

    Thank you Doug,
    It is always so good to hear what you are hearing from the Lord and when it lines up with what I am feeling it is so Powerful!
    I appreciate your dedication and service to His Kingdom!

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      I love when that happens LuAnna. It is so powerful because it is always good to have confirmation. Thanks for sharing with us. Bless you!

  16. Shirley M Criteser says:

    I had to take a step back and examine myself. I have been struggling and complaining about things in my life lately. I am choosing to stop now. I am so glad that Doug shared this! Thank you Doug! God Bless you and your ministry!

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      That is awesome you are putting an end to complaining Shirley. You will see a change in your life by doing that. Bless you!

  18. Mary says:

    Had 2 dreams – its raining as I’m walking past a group of men and young boys. One boy on his tummy dressed in dirty flute pink shorts and navy t-shirt. Water starts to wash the boy away, his face is in the water, he’s being washed into a large drain. Trying to get men’s attention. Can’t. As boy enters the drain he looks up. I physically call out Help! … my husband wakes me
    #2 dream – I look down, noticing I’ve got a towel wrapped around me like a nappy. I take it off, noticing that there’s a slight blood stain around the ties

    I’m curious what these may mean. It’s the first dreams that I remember having for a very long time

  19. Theresa McMillan says:

    I have been sensing a great change in the ministry from an individual to a group. I have been feeling that we have gone away from what God wants in the church and focused on what we want. We are being preached at and there is a disconnected. We need to stop talking about what people are doing to us ( talking about us, behind our back thing ).Really Who cares! . I don’t need to be told this in the pulpit. God sent out each to work together and not alone. Please step out from behind the pulpit and stop complaining about what people are doing in your life in your sermons. Accountability is missing. In our churches and in our lives. Yes, change what comes out of your mouth and be grateful for the day that God has given you. Thank you Doug for your help and the time you spend with God to direct us on the path we walk with God. You are a person that tells it like it is and we need that. Love you

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Thank you for sharing Theresa! Gratitude changes everything! Bless you and all God is doing in your life.

  20. Cynthia Speight says:

    Hi Doug, Awesome word from the Lord! I too have been sensing Greater is coming in this season but we have to stay focused on the things of God. Thank you for pressing in and sharing the revelation given to you. I pray that the Holy Spirit continues to fill you with even greater revelation knowledge. Peace and Blessings, Cynthia

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Thank you so much Cynthia. We appreciate your prayers and blessings! Bless you and your ability to hear God!

  21. Really good word Doug; I receive it. I agree with the Lord on it! The Lord started speaking to me in June about the transference of wealth; and that it is for the harvest. So this is awesome confirmation.
    Believing for the great outpouring and the great awakening and Harvest!

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      That is awesome you heard God say that to you Christine. I love getting confirmation! We are believing for the great outpouring and awakening too! God is on the move and so are His people. We are blessed to be alive for these times. Bless you!

  22. Niecee says:

    Hi Doug I love your ministry!! Your prophetic words are always so timely! Can you please pray in agreement with me, I lost everything in Hurricane Harvey, my home and my car. I was unemployed and my benefits ran out. I did not have flood insurance either. I wish I was making all this up but it is all so real for me. My heart is breaking but I know God is in it for His perfect will. Please pray my ears and spirit are open and hear clearly, I need Him so desperately to lead me and guide me, I can’t do this on my own! I am single and at the age no one wants to hire because they think I would be retiring in a few years at 65. My family has turned their back on me. I am the only girl and have 4 brothers and they are more concerned about making money and they don’t really care about my situation. I received a little money from FEMA but I need the Lord to lead me because this little $ won’t repair the house or buy a car. I need to hear Him and have the Holy Spirit take control of this. Thank you so very much!!

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Hey Niecee, my heart goes out to you. I can only imagine how you feel and what you are going through and it breaks my heart. I am so sorry that you are going through this. I am agreeing with you for supernatural finances and a shift over your life. God loves you so much and has many great plans for you. You are so precious to Him. As you stay close to God, you will hear His voice more clearly and you will know what to do. Here is Doug’s free e-book on hearing God,
      Bless you <3.

  23. Hi Doug thanks so much for your faithfulness to our Lord, to speak a word in season. I had a dream of a game where the outcome was a draw, with the score 147 (=12). I felt that it was a indication that the “score” between the old and the new anointing to come was equal but the game needed to be shifted to the favour of the new. We need to push through our internal and external barriers to “win” the new anointing. Fits with a picture from another sister, that we were in midgame huddle, getting a pep talk and encouragement to press forward in the Lord. He wants us to go forward following the golden thread of His purposes. As you say complaining, negitive stuff is a hinderence not a help! God bless and uplift you in continual favour.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Wow what a cool dream Julie! I love that. That is so true that complaining is a hinderance. Thanks for sharing, bless you!

  24. Carolyn Nixon says:

I ask, Please pray for my family, my son Tommy who is trying to find his way back to Jesus, having a rough time, and his amazing wife Charlene and daughter Chyanne, all battling serious health issues!!
    and also myself battling health issues and a huge demonic spirit that has hindered since i was a young kid… freedom in Jesus name!
