Regarding Promises at Billy Graham’s Passing

I don’t do this very often, but I’m doing it now.

Here’s what I hear God saying
(In another generation, this would be translated, “Thus saith the Lord.”):

There are a lot of prophetic words about what I will do at the time when my servant Billy Graham passes to glory. Many of those are true and accurate words.

But if you sit on your hands waiting for me to take the initiative for these promises to be fulfilled, you will not see them. Have I not given the administration of the promises of God to my sons and daughters?

The fulfilment of these promises is in your hands, children. Stand up and wield them. Stand before me and declare them. Stand up in your community and proclaim and begin to do them.

These are in your hands, my dear ones. What are you going to do with them?

ACPE Word of the Lord for 2018

Compiled by Cindy Jacobs

I hope you all had a wonderful, happy new year. This is the season where we like to share with you what God has been saying for 2018, and I’m very excited about this year.

What I have with me is a compilation of some words that came from the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders and the Global Prophetic Consultation in November 2017, which people say was one of the most historic events they have ever been to in their lives. It’s so good, and we know that God has given us a great harvest. We had prophets from around the world sharing together prophetically what they’re hearing for the upcoming season. There’s a theme that developed for 2018, and this common theme is that it’s gonna be a good year.

You know, 2017 was a very difficult time of uncertainty for so many of us. There were terrorist acts, riots, political unrest, and division. As we look on the world news, we have the threat of North Korea looming over the world. We had natural disasters here in the U.S., with fires and flooding across the nation. But, in the midst of it, I found myself starting to feel really good, and people looked at me like, “Are you crazy? Why are you feeling good right now?” Because I’m seeing what God is bringing.

God is doing a new thing. As you may know, as we prophesy, we often look for a biblical connection. Why do we do this? Because the Bible is a book of Hebrew thought. It’s not a book of Western thinking at all. So, if we’re going to understand the Bible, we need to understand the numerology. There are very important things that are hidden keys in scripture. People can say, “Oh, it’s an occult thing”. No, it’s a Hebrew thing, and if we want to understand what is written in the context of what is written, we need to look at the keys that have been given to us.

Possessing the Gates

On the Hebrew calendar, 2018 is the year 5778 and, if we see the pictorial emphasis from this, 5778 forms a gate. In fact, this gate can look kind of like a bridal canopy. So, as I was asking the Lord what is going to happen in 2018, I felt the Holy Spirit saying it’s the year to possess the gates of your future.

This is very important. I’m going to use the text Genesis 22:17-18, “Blessing I will bless you. Multiplying I will multiply.” Whenever the scripture reiterates something, such as “blessing I will bless you”, this is a form of emphasis meaning it’s superlative. It’s going to be greater than you can imagine. “Multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars in the heaven and as the sand washes on the seashore and your descendants shall possess the gates of their enemies, and your seed, all the nations of the earth shall be blessed because you have obeyed my voice.” I feel those descendants are not just our natural children, but also our spiritual children—people we have mentored or movements that we have started.

Some of you know that I wrote a book that came out in 1991 called Possessing the Gates of the Enemy, and I’ve just finished the 4th edition for it, which is coming out later this year. It’s a new update with a fresh, new look at prayer and spiritual warfare. As I was writing it, I didn’t even think about the significance of gates. But, this year will be a time where we are going to possess these gates—opportunities that are before us that we haven’t been able to reach before. In other words, we’ve not been able to go through the gates of opportunity.

It’s very interesting that this promise was given to Abraham around 2018 BC, which was 2018 years before Christ and 2018 years after, so it’s like a double full-circle time. We are children of Abraham, since we have been grafted into the vine, so promises given to Abraham are promises for us. Now, let’s talk about some ways to possess those gates.

Number one, you have to be prepared. Sometimes people just take life day by day, like, well, whatever comes I’m going to deal with it, but this is a year to possess your future. So, you need to look and say, “What does God want me to accomplish this year? What is it that I am supposed to possess? What are those things that have been dreams that you have longed to fulfill?”

It’s a time to dream again. It’s a time to sit down and say, “Maybe we had a business failure, or maybe we had something happen to our family, or maybe that dream didn’t come true,” but don’t give up on your dream. Possess it. This is a special year with special promises. We need to get ready for it, but how do we do that? One way is to surrender to God. Just surrender everything to God.

What Gates Has Satan Closed?

Where has Satan closed your gates? Don’t just let life pass you by. Think about where Satan has come in to those gates. Maybe it’s been friendship gates or family gates. Maybe there are some things that happened in your family and they were really painful. Don’t let Satan just win. Say, “No! Satan, you can’t win. You can’t have my family.” It’s time to stand and declare and decree.

As we sought direction together for the year, we kept hearing that “Glory” is going to be a significant word in 2018. There are going to be so many incredible miracles that God is going to show us. Habakkuk 2:14 says that the Earth shall be full of the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. God is going to show himself as the great God, the glorious God.

We are to live from the glory down, not from the problems of our life up. In other words, if we’re seated with Him in Heavenly places, and He’s a glorious God, He has all the solutions. He has all the answers. He has everything you need. So, when you’re looking at a situation, don’t look at what the current situation says. Don’t look at the problems of it. Seek God from the Heavenly, being seated with him in Heavenly places. Ask him to give solutions and bring those solutions down into the problem. God is full of wisdom. He’s a kingdom administrator. He knows how to do everything.2

I can’t tell you how many times I could not figure out what to do until I finally just calmed myself inside and said, “God, you know what to do”, and all of the sudden, I had the solution. It was like I suddenly realized that I was seated with him, talking to the Lord and He gave me the solution. I knew what to do, and I brought that into the current situation. You can do this when you need wisdom with your children, wisdom with teenagers—praise God that’s a very interesting time of life, isn’t it—or whatever it is. If you’re married, you might need wisdom regarding your spouse.

There are gates that Satan wants to shut—gates of relationship, gates that will slam in your face—and Satan will say to you, “You’re never going to have a good relationship with your family. You’re not going to have good times. The things that have happened have caused irreparable damage.” No, that is not true, because it’s not God’s will, and God created your family. He meant it to be good. Don’t give up your battle. Now, maybe it won’t come about in 2018, but don’t give up the battle. God will turn it. Begin to shift to fully embrace the truth that God is calling you to be an overcomer. I challenge you to take this truth and run with it.

A Season of Suddenlies and Acceleration

God is moving us into a season where He just does something suddenly for us. Like, one day everything’s terrible, and the next day you’re just shocked that everybody loves each other. It’s as if nothing bad ever happened, and you’re just kind of looking around, and you’re going, “Wow. Yesterday we were all at each other’s throats, and today it’s like it never happened.” You know, God can do that.

Salvation came to the Earth suddenly when Jesus was born, and you know that Moses came as a liberator seemingly suddenly after all those years of captivity. God spoke after hundreds of years of being silent. The suddenlies will come in your life, and that should give you hope in the midst of all your problems that suddenlies are coming.

Another word that was corporately given across the board was acceleration. This is a time when your wealth will accelerate. Blessings will accelerate. Prosperity will accelerate. You need to believe for it. The Bible says the word did not profit them not being mixed with faith.

You need to believe God that He’s going to give you that prosperity, that He’s going to give you blessing, and you know you say, “Well, what if I believe and nothing happens?” If you don’t believe, I can assure you nothing will happen. Whenever God says ‘I will’, that’s a powerful promise, and multiplying ‘I will multiply you’. So, let’s believe for acceleration, suddenlies, and for God to multiply you suddenly.

God is going to give business opportunities to many people. Maybe you are in poverty right now, or maybe you’re not able to make your bills, but God will download something to you that you’re good at. You’re not going to have to work harder, but you’ll work smarter, and it’s going to bring you the funds you need. You’re going to be able to do what your main thing is, and these other things will not take you over, but yet it’s going to give you the income you need.

Suddenly, that gate of favor is going to open up for you, and that gate of honor. Where there’s been dishonor, there will be honor. Somebody was telling me how Billy Graham used to be dishonored in the city of Charlotte, North Carolina, and now there is a highway or a freeway named after him there. That can happen. You can outlast your enemies. You can live longer, do better. Keep your heart right, and one day honor will come into the place of dishonor.

These are all very significant things. God is saying something to us.

A Moral Reformation

God is exposing immorality. There is going to be a moral reformation, and this is going to happen in Hollywood. Many, many people in Hollywood are going to understand that biblical values are important. I see many, many in Hollywood being interested in what we call good moral programming, and I’m just thankful for the people in Hollywood. You know, we always diss them, but they work so hard, and I just want to put in a good word for them right now.

After the Reformation, there was a counter reformation, where a lot of the work that had been done was undone. It was a very dark time. Well, the Lord spoke to us that if we are attentive, there will not be another counter reformation. If we don’t evangelize the Millennials with a biblical worldview, if we don’t speak to their hearts, in a decade, we’re going to see all that we have gained in this time of going into the seven spheres, or mountains of authority, start to be undone again. We want to reach the Millennials. We want to listen to the Millennials, and God is going to anoint people to do this and pray. It’s time to pray for the Millennials, and I prayed about that, too.

There’s a Revival coming—a revival of a magnitude worldwide that we cannot imagine. There’s a reformation coming, and I want to say something about that. We are in the midst of the Great Awakening now. The Great Awakening worldwide has begun. It’s not going to begin. It has begun, and it’s going to begin in different stages. We have seen great revivals come before, the Welsh Revival, different Revivals, but they didn’t last. However, we know with this reformation, there’s going to be a marriage between evangelism and reformation, and we’re going to see nations changed. We’re in the process.

The Isaiah 19 Highway

Another word that God gave us is about the Isaiah 19 highway. You may not be familiar with that, but it’s talked about in Isaiah, the 19th chapter, that there’s a highway of holiness that will be built from Egypt to Assyria to Israel. What is going on right now in Iran and the unrest there, what happened recently, there was such a reformation of Saudi Arabia. God is preparing a highway.

God is preparing a way for nation after nation after nation to be touched through religious freedom with his power, and there’s going to be a connection that will happen even with Israel. Sometimes people say, “Well that could never happen.” It’s going to happen, because the Bible says that it will happen.

The Great Transfer of Wealth

Another thing that God spoke to us about is a transfer of wealth. This will happen in more of a season than a one-year time frame, but we see the beginnings where believers are going to open their eyes and they’re going to see opportunities for wealth. They’re going to know how to go through the gates, how to go through the doors of opportunity.

There will be great financial blessings start to come to the U.S. Things are already beginning to turn around. God also showed me that for all the Middle East there are going to be blessings come for the believers there too, because what God is doing is all part of this Isaiah 19 highway.

I remember when we met with the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders, God spoke to us a number of years ago that the EU would fragment, and it has happened. We know there was Brexit. The Lord also showed us that the dollar would remain in a stable place for investing when things were shaky. This was around 5 years ago, and many people are saying it was going to crash and it’s going to go down. Well, the stock market is going up and up and up.

There will be some course corrections, but I do not at this time see a major crash, where it’s going to completely plummet, as long as we continue on the current path. But, if there’s compromise, it will go down, and you will see this directly correlating with what’s happening with our connection with Israel.

I also want to mention the Middle East. The Middle East is very important, as is China. Asia’s a very huge part, and the Chinese people in particular, but all of the Asians with this Isaiah 19 highway. Look to1 numbers of people going to Egypt. Numbers and numbers of Christians will start going to Egypt to pray, because this move of God, it’s happening now. It’s not something just beginning. It’s been happening, but we’re going to see it’s going to be on a greater and greater scale.

Africa is going to experience an explosion of God’s power, but the nations are going to be transformed, as well. At the meeting of prophets we had recently, we had prophets from all over the world pray together, and we were decreeing that the evil dictator Mugabe of Zimbabwe was going to come down immediately. At the exact moment that we were taking authority over the spirit that had held Zimbabwe bound by this dictator, the tanks were rolling into Harare. We have to keep praying that it doesn’t go back into the same way. We have great authority through the name of Jesus, and God has been speaking to us that we are going to go through gates of authority. It’s time for the Daniels in Babylon to arise.

Daniel captured Babylon, instead of Babylon capturing Daniel. God allowed Daniel to be captured, but then he became head of all the soothsayers. The Lord showed us that, as prophets, we are going to go into many, many doors and places in secular society, governmental places, where there’ll be those that are psychics there, but God is going to give us words that outshine them all through signs, and wonders, and miracles. We see this in the case of Moses and the Pharaoh with the serpents and the rod that Moses threw down.

We prophesied a lot about North Korea, that they are going to have a suddenly, where God is going to deal with Kim Jong-un. In fact, the word was, “I’m dealing with the evil dictators of the world, and these evil dictators are going to shake.” Maduro’s gonna shake. He’s gonna come down, and some of the others. We’re seeing Iran shaking right now. We saw what happened with Zimbabwe. We’re going to see it with Kim Jong-un. There’s going to be some turmoil, but Kim Jong-un is going to come down. God is hardening his heart like Pharaoh’s heart. He’s not going to allow Kim Jong-un to stay in that position. He’s not going to allow compromise to come. Something is going to dramatically happen, because his time for being a dictator is over, unless he turns his heart to the Lord.

Kim Jong-un, if you’re reading this somehow, turn your heart to the Lord Jesus. There are people praying for you, and if you will completely change, God is going to help you on a path that will not be destructive. So, you can choose, Kim Jong-un. You choose who you’ll serve. If you serve God, and if you change your ways, God will protect you. He will protect North Korea in a unique way and make peace with South Korea. However, if you continue on your path, it will lead to your destruction, and the sad thing about that is your destruction will lead to the path to hell. So, I just pray that somehow God will get that message to Kim Jong-un, because God cares about him. He doesn’t want that anyone should perish.

One of the words the Lord gave us is the word amplification. God wants to amplify your voice, and then it’s going to be a wave that’s going to be love-motivated. God is going to give us that love motivation, and we’re gonna prophesy in a new way. We’re gonna prophesy innovative strategies.

Now, not all of these will really touch everyone’s heart as I’m sharing this, but take notes and go over it again, because there will be parts of this that will stand out for you, and you’ll say, “This is my part. This is what I need.” It’s a lot of information, but go over it again and again, and believe it, declare and decree it.

So, this is the beginning of strength coming. There’s humiliation that has happened to some of the body of Christ. Maybe it happened to you on your job or maybe you’ve been persecuted in another way. Maybe you’re a student and it happened at school. Listen, God is going to cause you to shine. He’s going to take you to the top of the heap. He’s going to show you what to do to be the best of the best. There are spiritual confrontations coming, but God is going to anoint the business leaders. God is going to anoint those who, like Nehemiah, will be able to build walls of culture and change things in every way.

Prayers and Declarations

So, Father, I pray for those who will possess the gates of their future. Father, I pray that there will be strategies, and that there will be a new levels of intimacy. Father, I pray for those who have felt overwhelmed.

The Lord says, “Don’t be overwhelmed. Calm your spirit. Calm your spirit. Be still and know that I am God, and as you just take time in stillness just abiding with the Lord, just be still.”

You’ve asked Him so many questions. Now let Him talk back to you. Give time for the Lord to speak to you as well as you speak to him. God will show you which are your gates.

So, Father, I pray for those doors of opportunity. Father, I thank you, Lord, that you’re going to give innovation, strategies, acceleration, suddenlies, favor, and honor in the name of Jesus.

Let’s go through the gate of 2018. Let’s possess the gates of our future. Let’s do it with excitement, joy, and happiness. It’s going to be a great year. Now just go do it!

With Anticipation,

Comment: You'll notice that we have posted remarkably few "2018 prophecies" this year. It was our conclusion that these are less valuable than they have been in previous years, and many people are offering their own prophetic words for the coming year.

In a real way, this is good: the saints are learning to hear God for themselves. I encourage you: hear God for yourself for 2018.

Having said that, this word stood out: the source is credible, we have a track record with this prophetic council, and they both offer specific words and present specific application.

If you didn’t see the video of the word for Olympia

Last week, we posted a video of some prophetic words over Olympia, Washington, and over the Northwest region in general, from Chris Overstreet and his team. They were encouraging words, and I recommend that folks who pray for the Northwest region incorporate them into their prayers.

It seems that many mail programs declined to show the video. Don’t you love it when technology gets in your way?

If the video didn’t appear in your email, or didn’t play for you there, you can go to the www.NorthwestProphetic.comhome page to see it, or you can go to the source page (http://nwp.link/2CWt2fl) and play it there. (It’s on the NWP channel on YouTube: https://youtu.be/WmEs7ah3Jwo)

Thanks for your prayers for the Northwest, and for the NWP team!

Blessings!

Unexpected Authority

Last night I woke up about 2:00 am after an interesting dream, which then continued after I went back to sleep.

In the first scene, I was in a large meeting room of government and private sector officials and representatives that were meeting to discuss changes to state grant funding and regulations.

As the meeting progressed I complained to an individual sitting next to me that “we have been talking about the same stuff for years, and years, and nothing seems to be getting done. Here we are once again wasting a lot of time and resources to talk about the same thing with no hope of fixing anything”…

In the next scene I had moved to the front of the meeting room when the governor came in. She looked at me and for some reason asked me to come sit next to her. As the meeting progressed the governor became seriously ill and before she passed out, she grabbed me by the hand, looked at the people next to her and said “I’m appointing him Acting Governor” and then she passed away.

Everyone was shocked including myself because this wasn’t the way things were supposed to work.

In the next scene I was leading the meeting and making decisions to get things done…simply cutting through the red tape and organizational attitudes. After the meeting I was taken to another meeting with a different group of people – but with the same problems – going over and over the same old thing with no results. I listened, made decisions, and like the first meeting got things done. As expected there were large numbers of individuals in both meetings that didn’t appreciate what was going on and expressed their opinions.

As I lay awake thinking over the dream scenes and talking with Holy Spirit this is what He said:

“Change is upon the Body, change in focus, change in perspective, change in attitude and change in authority. The traditions created over many centuries are being shown to be less than accurate, less than desired, and definitely less than ME!

Many of My children are about to find themselves in unexpected levels of authority. Authority to bring change, authority to represent ME, and authority to get things done. These children have been soaking and resting in Me, they have found what their hearts desired and their desire is not for authority but to share Me…which is why they are perfect for what I am about to do. They will not desire authority for authority’s sake – but authority for the Kingdom’s sake and for My glory.

My son, you have been in a long season of preparation and so do not be surprised with you find yourself in a new and much higher level of authority. So be ready and enjoy that which I have prepared for you.”

Leaving the Pain Behind

Kris Vallotton

When I was at the Heaven Come Conference in LA this past weekend I felt like God spoke to me about some very specific things, including the subject of pain. There’s something profoundly available in this season for people to walk out of pain and I believe there’s an anointing available to change your season. Even though I’ve taught on pain before (whether that be depression, anxiety, physical sickness, heartache etc.), I actually feel like this is more than a teaching today—it’s a prophetic declaration. We’re in the 500th year of the reformation when the protestant movement was birthed. I felt like God said that we are entering Reformation 2.0 and that He’s going to do some crazy things in this season. So, all that to say, get your hopes up!

LEAVING YOUR PAIN BEHIND

I want us to take a look at a story in Scripture that’s a beautiful representation of what it’s like to step away from pain. John 5:2-8 (emphasis added):

“Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porticoes. In these lay a multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, and withered, waiting for the moving of the waters; for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted. A man was there who had been ill for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had already been a long time in that condition, He said to him, “Do you wish to get well?” The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, but while I am coming, another steps down before me.” Jesus *said to him, “Get up, pick up your pallet and walk.” 

Think about it. This man was at the healing pool for 38 years. He had watched others get healed while he was still waiting on his miracle for 38 years! Can you imagine the discouragement he was living in? I’m surprised he hadn’t given up yet! Then Jesus asked him a question. I think this is a question we all need to ask ourselves—do we want to get well? Some people go to the doctor or the healing rooms and never get well because they come with hopelessness and the expectation that they will leave that place sick. This is because they’ve learned how to live and cope with the pain. Many people come to the of pool promise but hopelessness reduces them to the pallet of pain. However, Jesus wants to take your pallet of pain and transform it into pulpit of purpose! Today is the day your pain is supposed to go, and I want to encourage you to pick up your pallet and walk! 

HEALING IS BETTER THAN NUMBNESS

Many people reduce their life to accommodate their pain instead of deal with it. The truth is that we’ve all experienced pain in life. An adage I live by is that you can’t always help what happens to you but you can always help what happens in you. I’ve been with people who are in tremendous pain and don’t feel the emotion of it anymore because they’ve reduced their life to accommodate it. They’ve numbed themselves. When we numb the pain we can’t figure out the source, so we try to fix the symptoms but our lives just get worse and worse. I encourage you to step into the pain because God wants to heal you, not numb you.4 things you should know about pain:

1. Pain is rarely the problem; it is almost always the symptom. Give yourself permission to dig deep and find the root of what’s going on.
2. Pain will lead you to the source of your problem. It’s actually a gift and a lead to follow.
3. The level of your pain does not always determine the depth of your problem. For example, a sliver in your finger can feel like you need to chop off your hand because the pain is so bad!
4.Ignoring pain or being afraid of pain often leads to bigger problems.

A CULTURE OF WHOLENESS

When you’re walking out of pain it’s important to create a culture of wholeness around you. Don’t listen to sad music or watch sad movies when you are processing through your pain. Don’t sing songs to your pain, but rather sing songs to your victory! Don’t minister to your pain or make it comfortable! Don’t try to live with it, rather make sure you’re working through it and getting it out. The Bible says we WALK through the valley, so don’t stop and camp out there. So how do you do this?

Recently I asked pastor Bill how his weekend was and he told me he had a great weekend and spent a day listening and watching to the prophecies that were given to him and Beni over the years. I was like, “Uh… I dug a ditch this weekend!” Haha. I just want to say that Bill has developed a culture of testimony and prophecy around himself, so that his weakness became his strength. He has fed his soul and spirit with God’s truth, with testimonies of what God has done in his life and in other people’s lives, and the prophecies that fill him with the hope of what’s to come. He has truly strengthened himself in the Lord. Over the years he refused to be a depressed man and rather created a culture of prophecy and testimony around him. We, myself and I’m sure many of you, now get to feed off of that. What I want to propose to you today is that you can do the same thing! You can feed off of the testimonies of breakthrough you’ve heard and the prophecies spoken over you! You can create a culture that others get to feed off of. But you have to leave pain so that you can get up and walk in breakthrough.

DO IT AGAIN

I feel that we are in a kairos moment for stepping out of pain, which reminds me of a passage in John 21. When Jesus rose from the dead he went to find the disciples in a boat. They had been fishing all night and Jesus yelled out to them from the shore to ask if they’d caught anything. They replied to say no, and that they’d been fishing all night. Jesus told them to cast their nets on the other side of the boat. Now let’s just think for a second. You’d think that if they were fishing all night that they’d tried their net on both sides of the boat! But Jesus asked them to do it one more time. My point is that sometimes it doesn’t take a new action, but rather a renewed action to see breakthrough. Sometimes Jesus asks you to do the thing you’ve been doing just one more time. I feel like this is a “try it again” day—whether that means going to the doctor one more time, going to the healing rooms one more time, calling your son or daughter that you haven’t heard from in years one more time…Today is the day that you can walk out of pain. The Lord is saying “take up the pallet of promise and move on.”

AFFECTED RATHER THAN OFFENDED

Some people may be offended at this blog. It’s not always easy to hear “get up and walk” when we’ve been waiting for our breakthrough. Think about the man at the pool of Bethesda… when Jesus told him to pick up his pallet and walk he could’ve jumped into a myriad of reasons for why he was sick and honestly taken offense. But when God is giving us the command to get up and move on, we have to purpose to not be offended! He’s not saying it with a calloused heart; He’s saying it with profound authority!

There’s something powerful about refusing to get offended when the Lord says to be strong and courageous while you’re looking fear and discouragement in the face. Receive the grace that comes with the word even if it feels harsh, and determine to be affected by His command instead of offended by it.

TODAY WE DECLARE BREAKTHROUGH!

Today, regardless of why you’re in a hard season, I want to encourage you to declare this out loud over youself. The power of life and death is in the tongue so let’s speak life over ourselves! Ready? Here we go: “I am leaving my pain behind. This is my day of deliverance. This day, the Lord will deliver me from the things that have plagued me and my family for generations. This is the day that the Lord decreed that I would walk out of a place of misery in every area of my life. Today’s breakthrough will affect and infect my children and my grandchildren. We will create a legacy of breakthrough. Hope and peace will be named among the attributes of my family lineage. Our family will create a culture of wholeness. What feeds us and walks us out of pain today will become our strength, and thousands of people will come to our house to get out of pain and find promise!”

Like I said before I’ve taught on walking out of pain a few times and I want to give you my teaching notes today. Simply click here to check them out. They include steps for walking out of pain that I hope will help you! I’d also love to hear from you in the comments! Let me know your thoughts and testimonies below.

Leaving the Pain Behind

Kris Vallotton

When I was at the Heaven Come Conference in LA this past weekend I felt like God spoke to me about some very specific things, including the subject of pain. There’s something profoundly available in this season for people to walk out of pain and I believe there’s an anointing available to change your season. Even though I’ve taught on pain before (whether that be depression, anxiety, physical sickness, heartache etc.), I actually feel like this is more than a teaching today—it’s a prophetic declaration. We’re in the 500th year of the reformation when the protestant movement was birthed. I felt like God said that we are entering Reformation 2.0 and that He’s going to do some crazy things in this season. So, all that to say, get your hopes up!

LEAVING YOUR PAIN BEHIND

I want us to take a look at a story in Scripture that’s a beautiful representation of what it’s like to step away from pain. John 5:2-8 (emphasis added):

“Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porticoes. In these lay a multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, and withered, waiting for the moving of the waters; for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted. A man was there who had been ill for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had already been a long time in that condition, He said to him, “Do you wish to get well?” The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, but while I am coming, another steps down before me.” Jesus *said to him, “Get up, pick up your pallet and walk.” 

Think about it. This man was at the healing pool for 38 years. He had watched others get healed while he was still waiting on his miracle for 38 years! Can you imagine the discouragement he was living in? I’m surprised he hadn’t given up yet! Then Jesus asked him a question. I think this is a question we all need to ask ourselves—do we want to get well? Some people go to the doctor or the healing rooms and never get well because they come with hopelessness and the expectation that they will leave that place sick. This is because they’ve learned how to live and cope with the pain. Many people come to the of pool promise but hopelessness reduces them to the pallet of pain. However, Jesus wants to take your pallet of pain and transform it into pulpit of purpose! Today is the day your pain is supposed to go, and I want to encourage you to pick up your pallet and walk! 

HEALING IS BETTER THAN NUMBNESS

Many people reduce their life to accommodate their pain instead of deal with it. The truth is that we’ve all experienced pain in life. An adage I live by is that you can’t always help what happens to you but you can always help what happens in you. I’ve been with people who are in tremendous pain and don’t feel the emotion of it anymore because they’ve reduced their life to accommodate it. They’ve numbed themselves. When we numb the pain we can’t figure out the source, so we try to fix the symptoms but our lives just get worse and worse. I encourage you to step into the pain because God wants to heal you, not numb you.4 things you should know about pain:

1. Pain is rarely the problem; it is almost always the symptom. Give yourself permission to dig deep and find the root of what’s going on.
2. Pain will lead you to the source of your problem. It’s actually a gift and a lead to follow.
3. The level of your pain does not always determine the depth of your problem. For example, a sliver in your finger can feel like you need to chop off your hand because the pain is so bad!
4.Ignoring pain or being afraid of pain often leads to bigger problems.

A CULTURE OF WHOLENESS

When you’re walking out of pain it’s important to create a culture of wholeness around you. Don’t listen to sad music or watch sad movies when you are processing through your pain. Don’t sing songs to your pain, but rather sing songs to your victory! Don’t minister to your pain or make it comfortable! Don’t try to live with it, rather make sure you’re working through it and getting it out. The Bible says we WALK through the valley, so don’t stop and camp out there. So how do you do this?

Recently I asked pastor Bill how his weekend was and he told me he had a great weekend and spent a day listening and watching to the prophecies that were given to him and Beni over the years. I was like, “Uh… I dug a ditch this weekend!” Haha. I just want to say that Bill has developed a culture of testimony and prophecy around himself, so that his weakness became his strength. He has fed his soul and spirit with God’s truth, with testimonies of what God has done in his life and in other people’s lives, and the prophecies that fill him with the hope of what’s to come. He has truly strengthened himself in the Lord. Over the years he refused to be a depressed man and rather created a culture of prophecy and testimony around him. We, myself and I’m sure many of you, now get to feed off of that. What I want to propose to you today is that you can do the same thing! You can feed off of the testimonies of breakthrough you’ve heard and the prophecies spoken over you! You can create a culture that others get to feed off of. But you have to leave pain so that you can get up and walk in breakthrough.

DO IT AGAIN

I feel that we are in a kairos moment for stepping out of pain, which reminds me of a passage in John 21. When Jesus rose from the dead he went to find the disciples in a boat. They had been fishing all night and Jesus yelled out to them from the shore to ask if they’d caught anything. They replied to say no, and that they’d been fishing all night. Jesus told them to cast their nets on the other side of the boat. Now let’s just think for a second. You’d think that if they were fishing all night that they’d tried their net on both sides of the boat! But Jesus asked them to do it one more time. My point is that sometimes it doesn’t take a new action, but rather a renewed action to see breakthrough. Sometimes Jesus asks you to do the thing you’ve been doing just one more time. I feel like this is a “try it again” day—whether that means going to the doctor one more time, going to the healing rooms one more time, calling your son or daughter that you haven’t heard from in years one more time…Today is the day that you can walk out of pain. The Lord is saying “take up the pallet of promise and move on.”

AFFECTED RATHER THAN OFFENDED

Some people may be offended at this blog. It’s not always easy to hear “get up and walk” when we’ve been waiting for our breakthrough. Think about the man at the pool of Bethesda… when Jesus told him to pick up his pallet and walk he could’ve jumped into a myriad of reasons for why he was sick and honestly taken offense. But when God is giving us the command to get up and move on, we have to purpose to not be offended! He’s not saying it with a calloused heart; He’s saying it with profound authority!

There’s something powerful about refusing to get offended when the Lord says to be strong and courageous while you’re looking fear and discouragement in the face. Receive the grace that comes with the word even if it feels harsh, and determine to be affected by His command instead of offended by it.

TODAY WE DECLARE BREAKTHROUGH!

Today, regardless of why you’re in a hard season, I want to encourage you to declare this out loud over youself. The power of life and death is in the tongue so let’s speak life over ourselves! Ready? Here we go: “I am leaving my pain behind. This is my day of deliverance. This day, the Lord will deliver me from the things that have plagued me and my family for generations. This is the day that the Lord decreed that I would walk out of a place of misery in every area of my life. Today’s breakthrough will affect and infect my children and my grandchildren. We will create a legacy of breakthrough. Hope and peace will be named among the attributes of my family lineage. Our family will create a culture of wholeness. What feeds us and walks us out of pain today will become our strength, and thousands of people will come to our house to get out of pain and find promise!”

Like I said before I’ve taught on walking out of pain a few times and I want to give you my teaching notes today. Simply click here to check them out. They include steps for walking out of pain that I hope will help you! I’d also love to hear from you in the comments! Let me know your thoughts and testimonies below.

Pillars are Changing

“Many of My children are and will be experiencing a change of PILLARS in their lives, individuals
that they have looked up to for personal strength and support. As your Mother has always been a pillar for you, many of My children have pillars as well.

This is a season of rapid change and for the replacing pillars. These pillars have done their work well and it is now time for them to move on, some to come home to Me, others to new endeavors.

However, in order to raise the ceiling for those who I have called to new heights – I must replace the pillars.

Many may not see or appreciate what is happening at this moment in time, but soon they will see and know that I have set in motion a plan for the next season of their lives that will see them rocket to new heights.

So do not despair at the loss of your pillars, yes for some there will be a grieving process, but as My process says I will never leave you nor forsake you, so trust me as things are changing and be prepared for the new heights that I am leading you into.”

A Season of Bumbling Around

One of the things that I do is I look at the seasons, the “big picture” view of what’s going on in the Spirit.  

This is an interesting one.  I call it the Season of Muddling Around. My brother Craig refers to “fuzzy-fog of not-quite-sure-what's-next.”

It’s a season where God doesn’t seem to be giving as much direction as he has in other seasons. You may experience it as “OK, what do we do next” in your home group or your church gathering. Or you may be having a hard time finding clarity in life choices or in addressing perplexing situations.

Paul went through a similar season. In Acts 16, Paul and his traveling ministry team finished one project, and had trouble finding the next one. They were “kept by the Holy Spirit” from ministering in Asia, and “the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them” to minister in Bithynia. This was a challenging transition season for him.

What’s this? The Holy Spirit is preventing them from preaching the gospel? That’s the Great Commission; God can’t be stopping them from obeying what they’re called to do! Yep, that’s what it says.

It seems like a number of believers are experiencing this sort of thing: just trying to do the thing that God has called you to do, but God’s not blessing it, God’s presence isn’t in it, or he stops you before you ever get started.  

So a lot of us are in a season of “bumbling around.” We’re trying this new thing, or that tried-and-true thing, and it’s not working. It’s easy to get frustrated in this season.

If you’re feeling some of this, let me say a couple of things to you:

  1. No, there’s not something wrong. God does different things, or does the same things in different ways, in different seasons. This is that season. This isn’t because of sin, or because you’ve “missed God.” Remember, this is a transition period. It’s temporary.

  1. This is actually a season of promotion. You’ve been maturing, growing up. You don’t need as much direction from Daddy as you used to need. You can make more decisions for yourself and for your place in the Kingdom. Think of this as a season of taking new “baby steps” and learning to walk as mature sons and daughters.

  1. Of course we stay plugged in with God, we stay intimate and connected, eyes on Jesus and ready to hear. Paul eventually had a dream that told him where to go, and it led to a surprising new ministry.  The end result of his transition was pretty awesome.

  1. Don’t be shocked if God leads you in a surprising new direction. Don’t freak out if he takes you in an entirely new and unexpected direction. Likewise, don’t choke if he takes you in the direction you expected, but it turns out to be completely different than the way you thought it would be, or than it has ever been before.

  1. In the meantime, keep doing what you’re doing, and keep your ears open. Stay in healthy relationship with solid people, and keep talking together about what God is doing, what he’s saying.

  1. And stay ready to change gears, quickly if necessary.

So congratulations on the new place in God! Well done! Now, are you ready for the next step?
