Prophetic Word: God Is Revealing the Book of Your Purpose

This is the start of the Jewish New Year and a new season spiritually. This year, the Lord is releasing favor for those who have suffered. Even though it has seemed that things have been delayed, the Lord is going to fulfill His promises to you. I continue to hear the Lord say to not be discouraged with the delays because they have been needed to help prepare us for the great things coming.

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

Three Books Being Opened

I saw three books in Heaven opening this year:

  • Books of Understanding
  • Books of the Plans of Satan.
  • Books of Purpose

God is releasing greater understanding into your purpose, revealing the plans of the enemy and giving you strategies to overcome obstacles.

Books in Heaven are not physical, but spiritual. They contain our life callings, assignments and prophetic instructions. We see books and scrolls throughout the Bible. Jesus talks about them in Luke 10:20, and we see the Book of the Lamb in Revelation 13:8.

This is the time of year when the Books of Heaven over your life—and particularly for the coming year—are opened (Psalm 139:16).

Books of Understanding

I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, “My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?” He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end … but those who are wise will understand.” Daniel 12:8–10 NIV

The Lord is opening deeper revelation this year, and the Book of Understanding about your season and calling is being opened. Get ready to receive deeper insight, wisdom and revelation.

For you this whole vision is nothing but words sealed in a scroll. And if you give the scroll to someone who can read, and say, “Read this, please,” they will answer, “I can’t; it is sealed.”

Isaiah 29:11 NIV

Watch for the Lord to reveal things that have not made sense to you in the past.

Books of the Plans of Satan

Then the Lord told me about the plots my enemies were making against me. Jeremiah 11:18 NLT

I had a vision at night in which I was shown books of the enemy’s plans against many people. In the visions, the Book of Satan’s Plans against me was very large, and I was not able to read the details because the pages were blurred. I felt the justice of God rise up in me. I entered the Courtroom of Heaven, pleaded for justice and asked the Lord to show me what Satan has against me.

This original encounter happened in 2017. I knew it felt incomplete, and that something more needed to happen. I had forgotten about it until this month, when the Lord took me back into it as if it were happening now, in real time (October 2019). Instead of seeing blurred pages, I was now clearly seeing the plans of Satan.

He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. Daniel 2:22 NIV

The Lord said, “I am now revealing the plans of Satan that were previously hidden in darkness. The Books of Satan’s Plans are now being opened.”

Books of Purpose

I saw a Book of the Lord’s Purposes from Isaiah 61 unrolling like a golden scroll in Heaven. This is the very scroll that Jesus read from in Luke 4:18–19 and proclaimed the start of His ministry on Earth. This is the Book of the Lord’s Purposes for us.

This year will be the opening of the purposes for which we came to the Earth to fulfill. This is the main part of the prophetic word for the coming year. A lot more regarding Isaiah 61 will unfold over the coming months.

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn … Isaiah 61:1–2 NIV

The Lord is bringing new power to release people from darkness. I saw people in this dark prison of uncertainty, feeling brokenhearted and held back. The Lord is throwing the doors open for you to come out of the dark night and wilderness. As you do this, you are going to receive a new assignment and anointing to help others.

… and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor. Isaiah 61:3 NIV

Your grieving is coming to an end. This year will be the start of a new season in which you will receive a crown of beauty and cast off the ashes of the previous season. The Lord is going to plant people in new places this year and position you to display the Lord’s splendor.

They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations. Isaiah 61:4 NIV

Watch for God to reveal callings and assignments that have been discarded or promised to you but have not come about. This is both personal and at greater levels that will affect cities and nations. Many cities that have been ridden with violence and crime are about to awaken to the Lord’s love.

Strangers will shepherd your flocks; foreigners will work your fields and vineyards. And you will be called priests of the Lord, you will be named ministers of our God. You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast. Isaiah 61:5 NIV

The Lord is shifting things financially this year. There will be strategies to make money for the Kingdom projects He is calling people to. New favor and help is coming from people around you.

Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours. Isaiah 61:7 NIV

This is a year of double blessing and the release of double portions from Heaven.

“For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery and wrongdoing. In my faithfulness I will reward my people and make an everlasting covenant with them. Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the peoples. All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the Lord has blessed.” Isaiah 61:8 NIV

The Lord is bringing justice and repayment for losses and bad things that have happened in the past. Watch for God to move in your family or those around you that you least expect.

I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations. Isaiah 61:10–11 NIV

The Lord is bringing refreshment, and joy is coming to those who have mourned and been in a time of waiting. New authority in the spirit is coming, and the Lord is going to reveal Himself to you in deeper, more intimate ways!

This will be an amazing time of divine turnarounds, and things will shift suddenly!

Blessings,

    Wow this gave me so much hope. It’s been a rough year for me and my family. In feb my husband went to the emergency room with trouble breathing. It got so bad to a point that he had to be put on a ventilator. During his sedation process he was being fed through feeding tube. His stomach had swollen tremendously and a gastric specialist did a colonoscopy to decompress him and somehow punctured his bowels and caused him to go into severe sepsis which almost claimed his life.. but God🙌🏾. He spent 3 months in the icu, 1month in a long term care facility, and 1month in a rehab center to get his strength back somewhat. He’s had to loose a finger tip, he had to have a colostomy bag for 8 months, had a severe pressure ulcer on his bottom that took months to heal via wound vac. He has so many problems as a result and some issues he will have to live with for the rest of his life. I had to go out on leave to Be there and care for him when the home care nurses was not there. Through it all God blesses us to be able to pay our bills up until this month. We are in danger of losing our place. Our bills are piling and our landlord has been calling like where’s the rent. Neither one of us have been to work since this has happened & I don’t see where it’s going to come from. But I trust that God will make a way for us…….Reading this gave me so much hope and reassurance that God will work our situation out…. Thank you

      Hey Teresa. I am so sorry you and your husband have gone through this. I am agreeing with you for financial provision and for you not to lose your home. I also am agreeing with you for complete healing for your precious husband. God bless you for being such a prayer warrior for him and standing in the gap! He is blessed to have a wife like you.

    I received a beautiful, but sorrowful at the same time, prophesy in the 70’s. That was built on by other Words and prophesies over my life over the years but one man of God told me it would be for others but not for me.
    I can attest that is true. Another (a DR I went to for minor surgery, told me God said he’d be seeing me that day and also gave me a Word saying things weren’t going to be for me I never understood that and was happy when another Word came saying everything the devil stole would be replaced BUT that was when I couldn’t see anything needing replaced until my life blew up in my face and I lost everything. This was in the mid 80’s and since I have been in a place of rejection: not being able to recover my financial independence or have my own home and seen my children turned against me with lies. My own Mother rejected me and I was abused by seemingly everyone I met even having my life threatened several times which I must praise God for keeping me from being killed.

    I continue in this vein and lately it has seemed I have been in a very dry place without even a church to go to (I attend a media church right now). It has taken a toll on my faith and your posts are lifting me up and encouraging me once again.

    Thank you.

    This word also speaks to me, especially about the Book of Understanding. The Lord Jesus gave me the task of writing a book. It was more or less dictated to me and it gives great understanding as to why there always has been false doctrine, etc. in the Church. It also explains about the destruction of the antichrist spirit from the midst of the Church before the Lord can return. It also explains the dead in Christ who must rise first and those who will be ruling and reigning in the New Millennium. The sub-title of this book is: “The Separation Between Religious Tradition and Truth About the Rapture”.

    I’m so excited by this word. It is 2am here and I couldn’t sleep for some reason. I jumped on IG and this came up. My heart nearly stopped at 5 days ago I posted a prophetic drawing of this very thing! With the 3 books as described. The Lord had shown me it was an important message and to paint it too. Now I’ve seen this how could I not! I’ve sent it through IG for Dough and team. I hope it encourages you as the confirmation from Dough has just encouraged me.

    I asked our Lord Jesus who would be my mentor and it was confirmed that you are Doug, I too had been going through attacks from the enemy and i kept saying Jeremiah 29:11, and eagerly waited for an answer I knew you would have for me. Some time ago, i believe it was last year God revealed to me Isaiah 61 and verse 1 this particular chapter has 11 verses and i was so excited because i shared with my sisters, that the year, day and month is my actual birthday. And that this what i have been called to do. PRAISE GOD, thank you Doug, please add me to your prayer list in fulfilling all that God has purposed for me.

    Dear Brother Doug, Your word has pleased me so much as it ties in to quite a lot that has been kept written on paper through the years but never unveiled. I believe now is the time that we will see so many promises fulfilled just as you write here so magnificently. I’m so excited and glorify God in my heart ..eagerly waiting for the complete manifestation of the purpose book to be unfolded around the world. Thank God that He is greater than any evil strategy that has been planned. The chirch of God shall triumph in its manifested and promised glory. Amen . Chantal

    I receive this word in Jesus name! Hallelujah! Praise God! Thank you Jesus! I have been waiting and waiting and standing in the gap for some issues in my family and with some of my family members. There have been some horrific things that have happened and behaviors from loved ones that have Cut Me Like a Knife and some things done to innocent ones that I pray in the name of Jesus stops and never again happens! I need some instant breakthroughs and some Miracles so I received this word heartily and decree his word and it shall be established. Please stand in agreement with me and if you have a word specifically for me I would greatly appreciate it

BTW, every time something important , marking a new deeper stage in my spiritual life , is about to begin, this Scripture suddenly appears in my car radio, in a framed Scripture on a wall, or in my own Bible . And here you are, unexpectedly, sending this exact message, today !! SHALOM and THANKS, Doug!! I’m joining you in the workshop Developing Your 20/20 Vision.
