I have mentioned before I have read a lot of words of destiny over 2014, and some have asked if I can summarize them. This post is basically a collation/combination/mash up of prophetic words I have read in January, words I am saying a huge YES to. You are reading a combination of the actual words of Doug Addison, Jonny Enlow, Kent Simpson, Kim Clement, Tim Sheets and Me! Most can be found in their entirety on Elijah list.
The year 2014 is 5774 on the Hebraic calendar – Ayin Dalet. The Hebrew calendar speaks to us prophetically. The number 4 is the letter Dalet. Dalet is the word for “door,” or an open tent flap, or the opening into a new territory. 5774 is also a Leap Year in the Hebraic cycle. Ayin Dalet references a year of open doors – so you can leap forward, that is, a year of open doors so you can spring forward. Holy Spirit is going to open doors supernaturally for His people this year to surge ahead.
“Doors of new history will now be opened. A new movement will now spring forth. A new stream from My throne will begin to flow. It is a pure stream of pure Gospel; for the stream of My Gospel has been diverted and dammed up by those who wanted the benefits of reservoired blessings, but I will now blow up the dams.”
A new spiritual landscape. A place of elevation. A place of purpose.
Once this door is opened to you and you enter into this spiritual environment, you will find the pathway that leads to the fulfillment of your destiny.
God is opening a gateway into the heavenly realm in 2014 for deeper revelation and greater power. This is the start of a new season, and the drought we have been experiencing in the Kingdom over the last few years is now over. Expect an increase in your spiritual gifts, dreams, visions, and supernatural encounters. This will open the opportunity for you to step up to a new level and see results for your efforts.
The first part of this new movement of God will involve a time of refreshment for those who are weary. You will experience mini-renewals of His presence and gifts in your life. Many people have been suffering from hope deferred for so long that they need to soften up and be recharged.
‘For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring, and My blessing on your descendants.’ Isaiah 44:3
The second part of this movement will be a new rain of the Holy Spirit that will come upon those that are seeking all that God has for them. This movement will look very strange, as all types of people will begin to be drawn to God. In the midst of this, a new generation will begin to awaken to God’s love, power, and acceptance.
The next phase will bring God’s power like we have not experienced before. This will be a new level of God’s fiery presence and healing. This is a start of a new healing movement with miracles, signs, wonders, and deeper revelation.
‘See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it’ Revelation 3:8
‘I am the [open] door…’ John 10:9
This year we will begin to leap forward into a new awareness of Him, and it will be transformational. This year will see the springing forward of so many into the release from their “accumulated tension.” Catapulting involves the slingshot effect of a great pulling back followed by a dramatic release. Preparing for catapulting often involves what appears to be going nowhere, or even backwards for an excruciating length of time, with an end result of great forward propulsion. When in His hands, the further you have been pulled back, the greater His desire to catapult you. Often in the pull-back, God is also going after important “character matters” as He desires you to be able to remain and occupy the place He is catapulting you to.
As we step into 2014, each of us should ponder these questions: What are our gifts from Heaven? Do we know what God has placed in us to fulfill His plan? Do we know what our part in that plan is? It’s important for us to identify our gifts because they are the keys that open doors and bring us into our divine destiny. Proverbs 18:16 promises us, “A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men.”
We can be sure that our gifts will play an integral part to fulfilling our God-given dreams. After discovering our God-given gifts, it then becomes our responsibility to continually practice using them. God has called each of us to exercise our gifts so they become strong. God will bring other people (they are gifts themselves, and they also have various gifts) around us to connect the dots on the road to destiny. Oftentimes people get stalled in the pursuit of dreams because they’re waiting for some man or woman to open doors for them. But listen! God has a better plan for you. He has given you the keys to open doors to your future – those keys are your gifts. And the gifts inside of you are perfect because they are what God determined for you to have even before you were born.
One of the words I (Michelle) heard for 2014 was ‘acceleration’. I was excited to read this from Kim Clement. “This is the Beginning of Acceleration” Isn’t God always ready to perform His word? The word “ready” – when He says I’m ready to perform My word, it means, “I will hasten and accelerate” My word. That’s the word for this season. You’re about to step into accelerated favor! I looked up the word “accelerate” as it is shown there. Listen to this, you’re going to love it, and then we’re going to do what God wants us to do and then celebrate and go into the New Year celebrating. Where is the God of Elijah? Listen to me quickly. The word “hasten” or “accelerate” means “to cause faster and greater activity.” How many of you are really ready for that? No more doldrums. No more passivity.
A lady wrote to me today and she was so upset. She said, “I’m sick. I’m so sick of waiting for God to show up.” I said, Let me tell you this, there’s a lot of people that feel like that. But this is a time and a season where He has caused a dynamic – not a demonic – but a dynamic that has pushed us, that has pushed us to dissatisfaction to the point where we will kill (and I’m not talking about murder) – kill demonic forces and whatever stands in our way for our promise to be fulfilled.
The word “hasten” or “accelerate” means “to cause faster and greater activity; to change the rate of motion; to reduce the time required for something.” To reduce the time required for something; to progress and to develop faster, to develop faster. God spoke to me and said there will be a fast development of these things that I’ve promised in the medical world, in the scientific world, in the religious world, in the political world – the things that have been spoken are going to progress and develop faster.
We are entering a season where those who have experienced injustice are about to receive supernatural restoration.
The Lord is speaking a word of hope in the middle of injustice: “I am about to right this wrong. The injustice done to you cannot stand in the presence of My justice. The enemy came to steal, rob and destroy, but watch what I am about to do. My court has issued an official order against this work of injustice in your life. Give Me your sorrow. Give Me your despair. These are illegal orders issued from the courts of darkness. I have destined this season to be a time when My goodness and purpose will be revealed. My mercy and justice is coming. This injustice you are experiencing is about to become a place of celebration and restoration.”
Hope is a person, not a theory. He has authority over the power and imagery of despair. He has given that same authority to us. Despair cannot stand in His presence, nor can despair continue to pull us towards its place of eventual death, if we call upon God in our time of need. Lies have no power in the light of His presence.
You can begin to prophesy and speak to what appears dead, hopeless, and cut-off so to witness fruitfulness and fulfillment once again. Romans 8:9-11 tells us that the same power that raised Christ from the dead is also in us because He lives in us. I believe this means that certainly we will also be resurrected from the dead, as Christ Himself was, but that also we have a divine power within us to resurrect dead situations or promises that appear completely cut off and separated from us.
I (Michelle) had a dream at the beginning of the year. I saw rows and rows of sheep who were asleep, and thought I’d leave them to it…
The Lord had me look closer I realized the sheep were not asleep but comatose. Rows and rows sheep in a coma.
I was challenged in my response. I couldn’t leave them to it… What do we do with this who are in a coma? We call them out, we call their name, we sit with them, we pray for them, we remind them of promises of who they were and are.
We stick with them. A very different response to those who are sleeping.
God showed me these sheep, his sheep, his children, in comas induced by life, decisions, accidents, illness, acts against them.
We as pray-ers – intercessors are to call them out of this state in the spirit. name them, remind them, declare, speak life.
I encourage you at this point to read the story of dry bones in Ezekial 37. When God instructs us to prophesy the word of the Lord, the future and destiny begin to come together in order to become fulfilled. Imagine your scattered prophecies, unfulfilled, being resurrected and coming together once again. God put His very breath into those bones to which Ezekiel was prophesying. Imagine life coming into your very own situations which appear dead and desolate. God is breathing life into every area of hope deferred right now! There was resurrection power released into those dry bones! You will stand! What an encouragement from the Lord He is giving us right now. We will stand and not be defeated in this season. When God resurrects something in our lives – whether it be His resurrecting dreams, vision, hope, or promises. You are no longer “cut off” from being completed – in every area! God has a plan for your life and He is watching over His words concerning you. He is promising to bring the details of your fulfillment together.
Praying you find YOUR word in this!
Love, Michelle xo
