In case you missed it, be sure to check out the important prophetic word I released on December 1, 2016: "The Gifts Coming to You in December." It has some deeper insight into what to expect for this month and how to get ready.
Change of Season
The Lord is closing the books on your previous season of life. Do not focus on the past or how you feel right now. Many people are feeling as though they somehow missed the Lord or messed up.
The Lord is saying, "I have chosen you and your generation for a special working of my power. Do not worry about how it looks now or the details of how it will happen. When it is time, it will happen quickly."
Because many prophetic words have not come to pass and with the untimely passing of some major prophetic leaders, some people are being tempted to reject or despise the prophetic ministry. We still need to hear the voice of God like never before.
"The word of the Lord came to me: 'Son of man, what is this proverb you have in the land of Israel: 'The days go by and every vision comes to nothing'? Say to them, 'This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am going to put an end to this proverb, and they will no longer quote it in Israel.' Say to them, 'The days are near when every vision will be fulfilled.'"Ezekiel 12:21–23 NIV
This is coming to pass right now. Many people have been discouraged and hopelessness has set in. But hear the words of the Lord. This is not a time to pull back but to move forward. Starting in March 2017 things are going to take a sudden turn as God is releasing His Glory and power back into the Church like never before.
God is Calling New Watchmen (and Women)
In November I heard the Lord say that He is raising up new prophetic watchers to be on the wall.
"'Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me.'" Ezekiel 33:7 NIV
The Lord is raising up a new breed of prophetic watchmen and women that will not only hear His voice, but will know His heart. The sound of the prophetic will change and prophetic watchers and intercessors will soon be sought after to bring the words of the Lord to key world leaders.
Watch as the Lord raises up Ezekiel 33 watchmen in the United States. There is going to be a change coming to your ministry and it will not look like what you think. It does not make sense for you right now. The Lord is aware of how the enemy has overplayed the attacks against you. Watch as hidden things are going to be revealed. You have not been forgotten and you are greatly loved and honored in Heaven.
Reaping from the Storehouses
I have released several prophetic words this past year about God repaying us for losses and specifically something happened last June regarding this.
This is a time that God wants to break curses over our finances and release resources into the Kingdom of God. God spoke to me that we are going to start seeing greater returns to us on our giving and answers to prayers.
"The Lord will command the blessing on you in your barns and in all that you undertake. And He will bless you in the land that the Lord your God is giving you." Deuteronomy 28:8 ESV
I keep seeing storehouses in Heaven with our names on them. For every time that you have given, prayed or reached out to the Lord and have not seen a return or response—the answers to your requests were actually being placed into a storehouse in Heaven for you. There was never a time that God did not respond to your prayers. The fact that you did not see the answer come to Earth does not mean that He did not respond.
"The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow." Deuteronomy 28:12 NKJV
Starting in December you are going to see your storehouse begin to open over you. This is going to create a new sound from the heavenly "slot machines" (for lack of a better example) hitting their payout for you.
The Key to God's Storehouses
God showed me that a key to receiving all that He has for us is to let go of our offenses and judgments. These are things we have against others. It is interesting that Jesus gives us a key to bringing blessing in our lives:
"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." Luke 6:37–38 NIV
Yes, giving will open things up to you. But if you read Luke 6:38 in context, Jesus says that we must first let go of judgments. The key to receiving a full blessing starting this month is to clear out any judgments we have had against others.
I am very excited for all the positive changes ahead for us. The year is going to go out with a celebration as God makes way for a new move coming in 2017!
Remember: "'… The days are near when every vision will be fulfilled.'" Ezekiel 12:23b NIV
