I have been getting so much revelation these days as God is preparing for a radical shift coming in September.
Losses result in actual gain
I have been having dreams of people who possess callings and mantles from God will begin to die. I seldom release these types of prophetic words because even if I tell people not to worry, many people start freaking out with fear. My intention is not to bring fear but to understand what is happening right now.
God spoke to me last month that the losses we see right now will bring new life.
“Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds” John 12:24 NIV.
Expect to see some very positive changes come from all the tragedy happening right now around the earth.
Don’t back down
This month I released my prophetic article “Restoration of Lost Inheritances.” When God showed me the ancient doors and heavenly gates from Psalm 24:7, I saw what looked like a scene out of the Indiana Jones movies. Whenever Indiana Jones was about to recover a lost treasure, there were always obstacles that he had to overcome. Don’t be intimidated!
This happened to me this month while in Pittsburgh, PA. I went into a swirl of spiritual warfare, anxiety and waves of disillusionment. At the same time, I threw out my hip and could not walk. I live out prophetic words and I have stuff coming at me all the time. But while I am in the midst of it, I don’t always fully understand it.
I reached out to people to pray for me but it went on for several days. Then on Tuesday, I woke up from a dream in which an angel was telling me that this spiritual attack was part of the prophetic word I had released and breakthrough was here. All the anxiety, attack and pain lifted instantly.
As these ancient, Heavenly doors and gates start to open, expect the enemy to come against you. Don’t be scared of them. As you move forward, you will get your breakthrough as well!
Prophetic signs are being given everywhere
Watch for prophetic signs in the news. Events happening right now indicate new things God is doing.
Lightning strike on Venice Beach
As terrible as it is for people to die or be lost, some of the events we are seeing are prophetic. On July 27 I heard God say “watch for prophetic signs because I’m speaking.” Just one hour later there was a very rare lightning strike on Venice Beach, CA, just a mile and a half from our home. It caught everybody by surprise. God is releasing something new that will surprise many.
“The voice of the Lord strikes with flashes of lightning.” Psalm 29:7
Another sign happened a few days later a mile and a half in the opposite direction from our home. A water main broke on Sunset Boulevard. The pipe was from 1921.
Water represents the spirit and shows that God is releasing a powerful move in the spirit. The old paradigm will not hold the new spiritual movement that God is bringing.
Prophetic sign in San Francisco
A huge colony of Velella Velella washed up on the shore of San Francisco. They are blue sea creatures but it is very rare to have them come this time of year. Marine biologist said they had not seen this in eight years.
Blue represents the prophetic. Water represents the spirit and eight is new beginnings. God is doing something new in the San Francisco Bay area.
Malaysia Airline 777
People have been asking me about the prophetic significance of the tragic plane crash of Malaysia Airline 777 flight 17 on 7/17. First of all, our prayers of comfort go out to all the families.
As I was praying (before I looked anything up on the internet), I heard God say that there was something of significance that took place 17 years ago, which was 1997. God is bringing back some promises and things that started in 1997.
Seven represents completion and 17 in this case is complete victory over the enemy. God is bringing something new that will soon be seen. The enemy is trying to shoot it down or stop it from happening but we will have victory!
I will be releasing more on this soon. I have to find my hand-written, paper journals from 1997 and do some more prayer and research.
Gifts are shifting
In early July, I noticed that I was struggling sometimes when I went to prophesy over people. It was taking more effort than usual. This kept happening when I tried to use my prophetic gift the way I am used to using it for the past few years which is to “open my mouth and let it flow.”
Whenever things take more effort, it can be a sign God is shifting things to a new level and we need to make adjustments. Most people are not aware of this and when the shift happens, they stay at a previous level and never grow or advance.
Since I journal daily, I noticed when it happened and asked God for a solution. I made some adjustments and found that my prophetic gifts are now operating at a different level, but I have to use them differently.
Our gifts are shifting upward right now. This is not just prophetic gifts… but all our gifts. If things are not flowing or working like they used to, then ask God to show you what the shift is for you.
After I made the shift, I was turning on my iPad to listen to worship music on internet radio. Whenever I first turn on the internet radio, there is always a video commercial before the first song. I heard God say, “this commercial is going to be a prophetic word for you.”
A sudden flash came on my screen and it said, “Shift into a higher gear and use caffeine if necessary…”
I laughed! This was a confirmation. God is shifting our gifts. He wants to accelerate us and it will take a concerted effort on our part.
I have been having a lot of flying dreams over the past month. In one dream I was trying to fly but having trouble, but I was given a white walking stick. Immediately I flew high and had new authority to do things in the spiritual realm. This is not just for me. We are all being given new authority to rise above our situations right now.
We are seeing prophetic signs almost daily. It is fun to catch them. You are being called to a new level and God is increasing your authority. Don’t get distracted with the storm that comes just before!
I keep hearing people talk about God judging the U.S. and the world but that is not what I am hearing from the Holy Spirit. This is a misinterpretation of the current events. Yes, it is a difficult time but the result is going to reveal God’s glory even more!
