I heard the Lord say, “Get ready for promotions and things to start happening quickly this year.”
… I am the Lord; in its time I will do this swiftly. Isaiah 60:22 NIV
Many people have been waiting for God to move in their lives, and also bring a much-needed revival to the world. Get ready for things to begin lining up like never before. Expect to hear the voice of God much more clearly, as you are being called up to a new level of breakthrough and maturity.
The spiritual atmosphere is very ripe for something new. God is moving and preparing for a radical revival that will start first in our own lives. We have endured a dry season in which many people have not seen the fulfillment of prophetic words and promises from God. Watch for the Lord to bring His instructions to you.
The veil between Heaven and Earth is now opening up more. God is getting us ready to receive and release prophetic mysteries from Heaven. These mysteries will expand our understanding of what is already written in the Bible and how it applies to our lives today.
This new revelation is starting to happen right now. God is opening up our understanding to things that were previously sealed because they are needed in this time and season that we are now entering. This does not mean that we abandon the foundational teachings of our faith in Jesus Christ.
I have become its servant by the commission God gave me to present to you the word of God in its fullness—the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people. Colossians 1:25–26 NIV
We are in a season when our lives on Earth will change radically as we grow in our understanding of what Jesus meant when He said, “on Earth as it is in Heaven.” (Matthew 6:9–10). We are now entering a season of greater revelation and interaction with the Lord that will bring Heaven to Earth in new, unprecedented ways.
I want to share part of a heavenly encounter I had in which I saw people all over the world either stuck in previous seasons or unsure how to move forward. Many of you feel like you’re called to something more, but you have not seen it come about.
[Start of Encounter]
In the encounter, I had a vision that an angel came with silver keys and unlocked chains that were on people. As the angel unlocked the chains, I saw another angel holding a stack of contracts and agreements that had been made with these restraints.These had been placed on people by those who did not understand them or had become jealous. The chains and contracts had been holding these people back from moving forward in many areas of their lives. Most people did not realize they had these restraints. They had gotten used to operating within the limits that had been placed upon them.
Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: “The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things! The Lord’s right hand is lifted high; the Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!” I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done. Psalm 118:15–17 NIV
Suddenly, the people’s shouts of joy and victory caused discouragement to fall off. Some had become so distressed they were at the point of giving up and wanting God to take them to Heaven. Others were suffering with suicidal thoughts. But these were all being broken!
I watched as many people began to shout and worship God. Then the Lord stood up and raised His hands and said with a loud voice, “Open the gates of righteousness!”
Open for me the gates of the righteous; I will enter and give thanks to the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord through which the righteous may enter. Psalm 118:19–20 NIV
Jesus said, “I will fulfill all the promises I made to you. The things I have spoken to you are now coming to you. I am now freeing you from the chains that have held you back. I am aligning you for this new season of your life. Stay close to Me and watch as I move in the midst of the storms. This is the gate that leads you to the very reason you were created. This is the pathway to My presence that will take you deeper into My intimacy and love.”
The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. Psalm 118:22–23 NIV
I saw many people who were being freed from the chains and restraints of the past now flowing through this new Psalm 118 Gate of Righteousness. They were given new freedom and purpose, and their strength was returning. Many of them had been rejected because they did not fit. But now God is gathering the misfits and rejected and is building them into something new.
[End of Encounter]
Two years ago, I had a vision in which I saw apostolic and prophetic leaders who had been carrying keys of authority over cities and regions, but had either laid down their calling or become judgmental. I saw angels going all over the Earth gathering these keys and reassigning them to people who were ready to use them for the new purposes of the Kingdom of God. I wrote about this in my Prophetic Forecast, Volume 2 book on pages 72–73.
A few years ago, I had a prophetic dream about a key angel. In the dream, I was given an ancient key and a rainbow key, but they were both blanks and would not open anything until they were cut. God spoke to me that at the right time the keys would be used to open up something new in the spirit.
On December 15, 2017, I had an encounter in which I was taken back to the prophetic dream about the key angel and the blank keys. I was now standing on a high mountain and there was a key shop with an angel inside. The angel operated the keys of Heaven machine. I handed the two blank keys to the angel and he cut them on a machine and handed them back to me.
The Lord said, “The ancient key is the mysteries and revelation for the coming revival that is being saved for this time. And the rainbow-colored key is the anointing and calling to reach the new rainbow people.”
The Jesus People Movement of the 1970s was to the rainbow people, which were the hippies. But the new Jesus People Movement that is now coming is going to be to the new rainbow people. These are the ones of many colors and unusual types. And similar to the hippies of the first Jesus People Movement, they have been rejected and considered unclean by most of the Church.
The Lord said, “The new rainbow people and the new Jesus People Movement is going to be to the Ezekiel 34 outcast sheep that have been pushed away by the Church. These are the gays and lesbians, New Age people, the tattooed and pierced, the zombie and vampire lovers. This movement will include women and minorities and those who have been treated unfairly.”
During these encounters in December, the Lord told me the Wind of Change is coming early this year and is going to blow things into place. The Wind of Change angel normally comes around March, but it is moving all over the Earth right now.
Watch for God to move on Southern California in a new way, which will impact the entire world—similar to the Jesus People Movement that originated in San Francisco, but did not take off until it came to Southern California. This revival is not exclusive to California; I saw keys of revival being released all over the world. Expect to see something happen in your area!
The new rainbow people movement was originally released last year in San Francisco, but the strongholds and controlling spirits would not allow the revival to start there. I have been holding two keys of revival and the Lord told me to release one in San Diego and one in Los Angeles.
I did this on New Year’s Eve weekend. Something powerful and historic took place and we are going to see the start of something amazing.
Get ready for sudden acceleration, as the spiritual season is now changing. Many people have gone through difficult times, but better times are now coming.
We are stepping into a season of excitement, joy and happiness. Those who have sown in tears are about to reap with shouts of joy. God’s wisdom and revelation is flowing!
