Prophetic Word: It is Time to Give Birth to Past Promises

   Bookmark and Share

Starting this month you can expect to gain new clarity and see the birthing of new things. The Lord is going to provide greater understanding into why you have suffered. Suffering produces perseverance and God is going to use this to bring new strength to you.

Signs coming

Get ready for God to release a divine strategy to help you navigate through what is coming! There are good things that God has kept hidden for this time and they are now being revealed to you.

Set up road signs; put up guideposts. Take note of the highway, the road that you take. Jeremiah 31:21a NIV

God is giving you signs and a roadmap, providing you directions for some major changes that are now here. Many people have been waiting for the prophetic promises of the Lord. But some of the promises you are waiting for are not the ones that the Lord is bringing in this particular season. God will show you what to let go of and what to pick up.

Timing revealed

For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. Habakkuk 2:3 NIV

God is going to help you sort through what He has been speaking to you so that you know what to focus on. It will be important for you to let go of things from past seasons and get a clear vision for what God is doing right now. God is going to highlight prophetic words and promises from the Bible, which will be like a light going on for you. Things are suddenly going to make sense.

Understanding your suffering

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18 NIV

Good news is here! Things that you have suffered through are now going to come back to you in the form of blessings and restoration from what was lost. Those who have suffered are about to understand why the road has been so difficult and why it seems that things are being delayed.

Though suffering is not fun, there is something powerful that gets imparted when we suffer. Those who are crying out to the Lord, “My suffering in the season has been too great,” are going to suddenly understand that it was necessary to go through difficulties. A new foundation is being built that will allow you to move in greater authority and anointing so that you can contain what God is imparting to you right now.

Time to give birth

We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Romans 8:22 NIV

The past nine months has been a time of birth pains. The Lord began something in August 2017, which was nine months ago. There have been painful and unusual circumstances and things happening. The weather patterns, injustices being exposed, increasing violence … this has been like child birthing pains and seems to be increasing.

If you look back at what God was speaking to you last August you will find some details and strategies that you will need right now. It may have seemed that these things were supposed to have happened already, but the Lord has allowed them to maturate in your life. Had God brought these things last year when He spoke them, you would not have been ready for them.

God has used the last nine months to raise up prophetic intercessors. Those who have been groaning like the pains of childbirth, crying out to the Lord to bring revival … this revival is now going to start in your own life and spread like wildfire to those around you.

Pentecost prophetic breakthrough

Pentecost marks the coming of the Holy Spirit during the Jewish holiday called the Feast of Weeks. We normally celebrate it just on Sunday (May 20 this year), but watch for God to move from May 19–21, which is the entirety of the Feast of Weeks. God showed me that something is going to radically shift after the 21st.

It would be good to make yourself available to hear from God during this time, as the heavens will be open for the Holy Spirit to flow with new revelation. The time between Passover and Pentecost is an exciting time of year in which God visits us with breakthrough strategies and births new things that were released during Passover.

Get ready to hear God at a new level!

      I am so sorry for your loss Maria. I can only imagine what you are going through and I am so sorry. I am so glad Doug’s words have helped you through this difficult time. God bless you and your husband in Argentina.

  2. Andy Castro says:

    I just want to say that I took Doug Addison’s hearing God 365 course. I learned quite a bit through each session and was always anticipating the next. After completing the year-long course, things started calming down a little bit when it came to having dreams and hearing God in my quiet time. But within the last two or three months it has ramped up again. Especially since I started going back to August of last year and reading what God had spoken to me at that time. I highly encourage you to do the same. If you haven’t taken his course, I highly recommend it. It keeps me grounded and helps me 2 look for God in more than one dimension of my perception of Him. It’s really has been an amazing internal transformation in my life. Thanks to Doug Addison and his team.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Woohoo! Thank you so much for sharing your experience with Hearing God 365 Andy. We are so glad that you have been blessed by Doug’s ministry school. We love and appreciate you and all of our students. God bless you Andy!

  5. Louisa says:

    Thank you for such a timely prophetic word as its been a struggle trying to understand why its been this way and for so long. Tho it tarries , I will wait for it. His promises are sure and tho he slay , yet will I trust him.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Many feel the same way that you do Louisa, where they feel like they have been waiting for a long time. Your faith in God through all of this waiting is so precious and beautiful, He will not let you down! God bless you!

  6. Ernie Simms says:

    This is such confirmation of what we have been getting from the Lord in past few months. Absolutely amazing! We (my husband & I) left The Salvation Army Nashville in August last year as we were “being lead by the spirit too much” for a new leader. We have been waiting, grieving, healing, and anticipating. Thank you for that word of encouragement and pls pray we follow the road He has for us in next season. Bless you for sharing what you do! Ernie Simms (female).

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Bless you Ernie as you and your husband step into everything God has for you in this new season. God is with you both!

  7. Terrie Martin says:

    Doug , your prophetic voice has been an pillow for me as a prophet you had shown me that inspite of my suffering God has heard my cry. I thank God for the gift that we share and prayerfully once my breakthrough comes in like a wildfire I will not forget to show a seed into your ministry.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      I am so glad Doug’s words have brought encouragement to you Terrie. God is with you in your suffering and He loves so much. Believing with you for breakthrough in your life! God bless you!

  8. Jennifer Lefaver says:

    I went back and read the words from the Lord from last August and WHOA! Everything that I have been hearing, learning, seeing is directly connected to what I received in August of last year. Also I didn’t realize how powerful the words were that He had spoken then! Thank you Doug, you never cease to amaze me or touch my heart in the most awesome way. Been following you for at least a decade and God uses you in such mighty and incredible ways… Thank you for not giving up and for being uniquely you : )

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      That is so cool Jennifer! I love that you write down the words that you get. Bless you as you step into everything God has for you!

  9. Missy StJohn says:

    Powerful… I receive it! I am beginning to see breakthrough coming and strategies for what was shown to me early last year!

  10. Sibongile says:

    Wow! Thanks for this powerful prophetic word. I got engaged in August and 2 weeks later my fiance passed on & I didn’t understand the meaning of all this.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      God bless you Sibongile. I am so sorry about your loss. Praying for comfort for you and peace.

    A New Melody: Birthing Sound Of Destiny

    Dust and Deity, they will meet
    when the King breathes His Spirit’ fire
    Kissing the mouth of the Beloved at His feet,
    to raise her towards His hearts’ desire

    My silver winged dove, My beautiful one
    speak words like lilies, tune your sound
    Wreaths of flowers, crowns with faith to run,
    hear this sweet melody of birthing’ ground

    Oh, cloudy dust, if you would only go away !
    A wild blow opened up a ceiling of majesty
    How i was undone by Your stars of brighter day,
    a pearly lining laid out as a perfumed fragrancy

    As an open wound You have split the rock,
    bringing forth water streams from inside
    Broken and hurt, You ruach Your thirsty flock,
    bursting me free wide, impossible to hide !

  12. Louise Zander says:

    Oh my! This is so accurate! God had begun to prepare and speak to me of his promises in August, 2017! Thank you Doug for this word! Louise

  13. Cheryl says:

    I receive this word! Hallelujah! We have only known so many struggles since 2002, I pray God is going to show up in a big way and restore what the enemy has stolen! 🙏

  14. Nicola Williams says:

    Been through a very tough season but God shines or its shining light at the end of the tunnel. I want to set my sail to move with His wind. However, last night I had a dream of a rat bat flying around and he lodged near a mouse or rat. The rat then gave the bat a little bite and then the bat angrily opened it’s mouth and swallowed the rat. I became very scared looking for my son who was four to protect him.
    Don’t know the full meaning. But I am praying to break anything being orchestrated in the occultism world concerning my life and in Jesus name. Amen.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Bless you Nicola! Agreeing with you for protection and fear to leave. God loves you and is with you.

  15. Marlene Kerr says:

    Please pray for me and my family. We are going to a horrible moment now. But I trust God and believe in His words, He will never leave me or forsake me. I really need a prophetic word to quicken my spirit.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Praying for God’s peace and joy to sweep through your family Marlene. God is for you. Bless you and your family.

  16. Erica says:

    Thank you for this word! I come into agreement with this word and shout an AMEN to understanding and breakthrough! I wait with expectancy and hope of the ways God is going to speak and reveal. This word could not have come a better time than this, brings me hope and reminds me that the joy of the Lord is my strength.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Woohoo! That is so wonderful to hear Erica! God bless you as you wait with expectancy and hope for what God has for you.

  17. Nicole says:

    Thank you for this word!! I’m having faith for the shift in my current long season! I’ve been seeing the number 22 and 44 ALOT to where I know God is speaking continuously thru those numbers. I believe perhaps the shift on the 22nd has something to do with this and I can get the reassurance I’ve been needing.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Wonderful Nicole! I love when God speaks through numbers. God bless you during this shift.

  18. Jenn says:

    Wow. Thank you for that! It has been a long and harrowing nine months in many ways but God has been so close and so intimate too. It has been a struggle keeping my mindset from slipping as looked for justice still hasn’t happened and I’ve been wondering why the injustice has been taking so long to correct so different from the joyful promises he’d showed me in August. It’s been a continuing onslaught in so many ways but I’ve been planting my heart and my feet on those Promises he gave me at that time. Looking for fulfillment of the words and the provisions because I know his intention toward me. I’m done everything to keep standing and despite increasing onslaught after onslaught I am standing still but it is hard, I’m tired, lol. I sometimes wonder if I heard correctly, is this destiny not too big? But in this moment I work to remind myself that it’s not just my life on the line but the testimony to impact and break open the lives of many others too, if promises hold true maybe even a nation, and if I can hold on and outlast, I win. Thank you for this encouraging word. It it so for me, times and setasons and everything involved. Many others I’m sure also, but me too.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      God bless you Jenn! I love how you are not quitting and are running strong. God is with you and will help you through all of this.

  19. Mary says:

    Can hardly believe…. I looked up august 2017 and saw that was when I had a dream of giving birth suddenly…very difficult times since….makes so much sense…now!…..amazing…thank you Doug and team….and God bless you !!!!

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      That is very cool Mary! I am so glad that you keep track of your dreams. That is such an important thing to do. God bless you!

  20. Louise says:

    Wow! Just looked back to August where my husband and I were in Israel serving at a worship conference and wondering HOW we would walk through the next step: funds desperately needed! We were there via our volunteering with a mission organization in UK. SUDDENLY we were back in Canada where my husband was asked to teach woodwork at the local high school. I have been setting myself apart, at God’s leading, and know there is a suddenly and a multiplication as heaven touches earth. Praying for the next step.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Agreeing with you for wisdom and clarity for your next step Louise. God has got you and your husband! God bless you both.

  21. Elizabeth says:

    Hello prophets Doug! thank you so much, confirmed this wonderful word. My family and I had very hard time. I’m from Bolivia., I currently live in London. Praying a Divine covering over you . thank you!! God Bless you

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      Thank you so much for your prayers Elizabeth, we appreciate them so much! God bless you and your family!

  22. Marian says:

    Last August 2017, I started to attend after I ask God for a church that will allow me to grow. I found it but with that the enemy started to work on my husband and he wanted to divorce me since then. After extremely difficult times in the beginning of 2018, the marriage decayed terribly and husband stopped attending church at the end of last year. Things started to get worse, husband filed for divorce at the beginning of the year 2018 and this upcoming may 21, 2018 the divorce will be determined in the legal court. All of this after a marriage of 8 years. I am constantly seeing car license plates with repeated numbers such as 8787, 777, 8888, 1616, 1111 or it’s repeated reverse numbers 8008, 4994, 7887, 8778, 2552, 5775, 1212. I have taken the dream course with Doug Addison and other courses, but I am still having hard time trying to understand what is beginning to birth. I hope anyone can provide me an insight.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      I am so sorry for all you have been through Marian. God is with you through all of this. Seeing repeating numbers could be the meaning of the actual number or symbolic that things are about to line up for you. The only way to know for sure is to record it, watch for it and ask God for confirmation. Doug write about that topic in this blog post. Bless you Marian!

  23. Carol Moore says:

    Awaken this morning to this message. I dont know who sent it to me but heaven knows the plight since the loss of my Mother last July 2017 and things have taken some very strange turns and my husband and I have endured some very unsettling things in our finances suddenly. A large struggle. The Church we atended closed suddenly in December, felt like we were onceagain mourning a loss. I believe a word Church jas been found but husband showing no interes in going.
    Experiencing difficulty in paperwork regarding clearing title to Moms house. Estrangement from 2 daughters because of hose. I have no siblings but Grands are wanting free ride. So many things yes, in 9 months. This struck me as perhaps a sign.

    • Nikki, InLight Connection Team says:

      I am so sorry for all you are going through right now Carol. None of that sounds easy to go through. I am praying now for peace and clarity for you. God is with you through all of this. Bless you!
