We are in a time of a 7-year season that is coming to completion. It started in 2011 and is now concluding in 2018. If you go back and look at the calendar in 2011, you will see how something started but ended abruptly, or there was a time of challenge and even difficulty. But this is the end of a major 7-year cycle that comes to a close this year.
The past 7 years have been difficult for many people, and it has been like start and stop, start and stop. Things would start to break through, then they would dry up.
Open for me the gates of righteousness; I will enter and give thanks to the Lord. Psalm 118:19-20 NIV
This is the gate through which the righteous may enter. The gates of righteousness are about to open over us. This means that things are going to start flowing in our favor. Instead of toiling and laboring, we are going to flow in the Spirit. But this season will not start until after September.
The Lord showed me to release these three prophetic words that I released previously in April, May and June of this year. These are the things that are now coming:
Watch for God to reveal hidden revelation from your past. These are things that He has spoken to you about previously, or you have received prophetic words that have not come to pass. This will also include God surprising you with fun and new things that are coming right now!
From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you. They are created now, and not long ago; you have not heard of them before today. Isaiah 48:6b–7 NIV
Many people have been crying out for direction and strategies from the Lord to get through this difficult season we have been in. These prayers are now being answered, and God is going to reveal secret things and secret places to find them. This is the form of revelation that has been stored away, kept on hold until this very season of your life.
God is going to summon you by name. He is going to do something so that you will know it is from Him. He is going to speak your name or give you confirmation so that you will know that you are on the right path.
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.
God is releasing new prayer strategies that will help you get your breakthrough. This is a time in which the Lord is going to reveal and heal things that have been holding on. God is going to reveal hidden plans the enemy has been using against you in the area of your destiny. This includes health, relationships and financial breakthroughs.
They are to teach my people the difference between the holy and the common and show them how to distinguish between the unclean and the clean. Ezekiel 44:23 NIV
This is a time to get a breakthrough prayer strategy for what God is doing right now. I would encourage you to read my Prophetic Word: Making Sense of the Chaos in the World more than once—it is a call and a strategy to pray and break the spirit of violence and the 80 days of preparation we are now in.
