Word for August: Embrace the Change

Embrace the Change —
Help is on the Way!

August is here and I am really excited!  Prophetically, it is the 8th month and 8 represents new beginnings.  Quite often, we will see the start of new things in August. As this happens, expect to see the old things die away.

I have had heavenly encounters all month involving promotions and commissioning of new plans to continue to prepare us for this next powerful move of God that is coming.

The word I am hearing from God for August is the pain of change.  Embracing changes will help you to transition from the old to the new.

I had an encounter last Sunday and a strong presence of the LORD came into my room.  He spoke to me John 16 and 17, where Jesus helps His disciples get ready to transition to a new season as He was about to go back to Heaven.

“Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices.  You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy.  A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world.”  John 16:20-21 NIV.

Many people have been mourning the loss of things that never took place or attacks of the enemy that have seemed to never end.  In John 16 and 17, Jesus prayed for Himself, His disciples and then the people they were going to reach as a result of the disciples’ grief, loss and suffering.

The LORD is praying for you right now and sending blueprints, plans and strategies for you to be positioned into this new movement at hand.  The pain of getting here will soon be forgotten as the new baby is born.  The new baby represents new gifts, callings and blessings that are on their way.

The Next 6 Months

I have been seeing a chessboard coming down from Heaven in August.  This represents new things that are going to be moved into place, a radical realignment.  Your calling and assignment for the next 7 years is going to start to be revealed to you.

For many, there has been a missing piece or part that is going to suddenly appear.  As this happens, there is going to be a huge transition and repositioning.

Transitional Help from Heaven

I saw transitional teams of angels getting assigned to help many people who are being called to be part of this next move of God.  Things are going to speed up and this will help with the pain of crossing over to this new season and time.

As the new wind from Heaven comes, it is going to kick up debris, but do not let it distract you from what God is revealing.  Many root causes and covert attacks of the enemy are going to be revealed.

Things Hidden Now Being Revealed

We are in a time in which hidden revelation is being revealed to us for this new 7-year season of harvest we are about to enter into.

“I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name,”   Isaiah 45:3 NIV.

God is positioning and summoning you by name.  Invitations are going out in the Spirit for one of the greatest moves in history.  He is inviting and commissioning people who have been crying out for changes.  Something new is rumbling like a rocket about to take off into something new.

All Things New

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.  See, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?  I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”   Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV.

God is beginning to release new strategies for this transitional time.  The season we are entering into will require new strategies from Heaven.  You will not be able to pour the new wine into old wineskins without it making a mess.

Watch for These Strategies to Come:

  • New ways that are needed to reach people with God’s love
  • New ministry techniques needed for this new revival
  • New music, sound and language that will awaken a generation
  • New art, writing and creative expressions
  • How to finance new Kingdom projects, new radical churches and Kingdom

New Wave of Prophets Commissioned

On July 29, I saw a major shifting happening in the Courts of Heaven regarding the callings of prophetic people.

I saw and heard a meeting happening and many prophetic men and women’s prophetic words and ministries were being evaluated.  The purpose was to choose a new group of new wave — or new wineskin — prophets that will be used strongly over the next few years.

Then, the following morning on July 30, I heard an angel announce, “Get up, because a decision has been made.”

There were 200 new wave prophets commissioned in Heaven.  These prophets varied in age, many young and some older.  They all had been through the fiery furnace of testing.  Most of them were among the hidden ones that are unknown and have been set aside to do a special assignment and work.

The time has come for the reason these people came to Earth.  Some of them had prophetic keys and assignments from previous prophets that had gotten judgmental or had stepped away from their assignments.

There was a great deal of rejoicing by the angels over this occurrence.  These newly commissioned prophets will begin to emerge over the next six months.

Watch for Iran to Open

At the same time as the new prophets were being commissioned, I overheard a strategy meeting in the Courts of Heaven.  There has been a peace treaty in the spiritual realm for Persia — this is Iran.

A battle has been raging and there is a shift in the spiritual realm.  There will be a window of time for prophetic dreams as the LORD is visiting Persia from now, through November 11, 2016.

These dreams will be significant, but will continue to come after that as well.  God was giving out prayer assignments to some key prophetic intercessors to open this divine window of time.

This truly is an exciting season and I would encourage you to stay focused on what God is doing and not the negative rumblings that are happening on Earth.

Rise above the storms and do not get caught in the out-pour of negativity and fear.  God’s ways are higher than these.
