Drop Your Old Bag at the Crossing of 2023,
You Are Getting a Brand New Bag!
I had a Dream a few nights ago, in which I saw someone carrying what looked like a Hobo’s bag full of old things they needed, and some they did not need, for the journey they had been on.
Then I saw what looked like a line on the ground that this person was standing on, and I knew immediately that they were getting ready to cross over into 2023 and a New Season, and suddenly a New Bag appeared in their hand, but now the bag was full of new things that they would need for the New Season they were entering into.
Both bags looked similar; they looked like they were made of Linen, but different things in them.
New Ways to Hear and See Him
The LORD began to show me that in this New Year, we cannot bring anything into the new.
He said that He is going to begin to give us new tools for the next journey, and for some that thought that God had stopped speaking to them in 2022, that it is because He is going to cause you to hear and see Him in a brand new way.
For many, you have depended on God to use you in certain ways, but He is giving you in the New Year, “eyes to see Him in whole new ways!”
All that we depended on as far as hearing from Him, is going to change for all of us.
This is actually Him trying to get us to come up in our Faith, and He is going to bring it to a new level.
Look for the new way He is speaking in your New Bag in this journey, of course all will always line up with His Word, but His Methods are going to change in all of our lives.
He said, “Tell them I want to excite them again — and bring them back to a First Love experience!”
I AM Going to Give My People the Gift of Faith
“To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;” 1 Corinthians 12:9.
“Yes, you have the faith of a mustard seed — but this season, I AM going to give you a Gift of Faith, especially in the area of Healing and Deliverance.
I will highlight great miracles like I did My Disciples, and during certain times when I wanted to get the world’s attention.
But I AM about to show them The Grand Finale! This Finale will be a display of My Splendor — and no man will take credit — but they shall know that it is Christ in you, The Hope of Glory!”
Many Who Have Never Seen Will Begin to See Visions
“And it shall come to pass in the last days, God declares, that I will pour out of My Spirit upon all mankind, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy [telling forth the divine counsels] and your young men shall see visions (divinely granted appearances), and your old men shall dream [divinely suggested] dreams,” Acts 2:17 AMP.
God is going to add visions to many bags of tools to carry into 2023, and men who have never dreamed will begin to hear from Him in this new way for them.
He is giving me the sense that he is wanting to encounter you in new ways that will astound, not only you, but the world!
Get ready, for new kinds of encounters in the New Year!
Great Clarity and Discernment
“And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.” Isaiah 29:18.
There are many who have never SEEN before or HEARD The LORD, who will begin to see “behind what is on the surface and see the motive of those in government and in the world.”
God is opening the eyes and the ears of those who stay close to His heart, and He will be given ‘Hole in the Wall” Vision into the affairs of men in high places, just as he gave Ezekiel in Ezekiel 8.
God will be giving men of God, “eyes to see, and a voice to call out the abominations that are happening both in the Government and in the false Church!”
Drop It All at the Crossing
I then heard The LORD say, “Drop it all — before you cross over!
All that you are hanging onto that has slowed you down in the last season, must be dropped at the crossing!
All bitterness, wrath, anger! Yes, all that will keep you from entering into The New, will only weigh you down and cause you to stumble in the next year. So drop it — and let it go!
Forgive all who wronged you, and forget all hat have betrayed you. Give them to Me and I will take care of it!”
Reforming Tools in Your New Bag
“I have been in the process of shaking all that could be shaken, so that which should remain will remain, and now I AM giving you New Tools to bring that reformation.”
“See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant,” Jeremiah 1:10.
I hear The LORD saying it is time to plant on this Rock of Revelation, and leave all religion behind!
“I have asked you to come out from among them, and now is the time to bring reformation to that which remains!
My New Church will have a New Bag to carry into the New Year, if she will drop the old bag and pick up the new!
Watch what you are about to See in 2023 — and do not discard the unusual, because I AM about to do a new thing shall you not know it?”
