I heard the Lord say, “July is not an ordinary month but a ‘doorway month’ to what lies ahead. Pentecost was the marker of the change in era and a shift occurred in the spirit at that time. This month My people will begin to see the change in season, for a change in the natural is seen after a shift in the spirit.”
THE DOORWAY -
The Lord then said, “I call this month the doorway month for My people will begin to see evidence of the door in the spirit that has opened. The signs of the door that has opened will begin in a small way but will intensify, accelerate and continue to multiply next year and in the years ahead.”
MARKERS OF THE NEW ERA –
The Lord then gave me 12 indicators of the new era; twelve things that would be observed in the time ahead and He spoke on each of these 12 markers…
Return to the ancient paths
“My people will search out and realise the importance of My ancient paths. There will be a return to walking these paths and I will raise up many who will teach others the truth found in My word in regards to My ways and My paths.”
Jeremiah 6:16 (ESV) – Thus says the LORD: “Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls.”
Rise of those filled with fire
“I baptise with Holy Spirit and with fire. Many ask to receive My Spirit but in the time ahead more and more of My people will understand the need for My fire. Those sealed and filled with My fire will rise up in great numbers in the days ahead for these are the remnant who have been separated and prepared for this time. They will carry My fire and prepare the way for My return. My fire is a purifying and all-consuming fire. Those branded with My fire carry a boldness and authority to speak My word and they display My love. They haven’t just asked for My power that comes from My Spirit but they have desired My fire, that refines, separates and prepares.”
Luke 3:16b (ESV) – He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
Hebrews 12:29 (ESV) - for our God is a consuming fire
“I am calling My people back to true worship for I desire those who worship Me in spirit and in truth. They seek Me and My presence and their lives are an act of worship to Me for their lives are surrendered and consecrated. There is great power in pure praise and worship and My glory will move like a cloud over and around those who walk in a lifestyle of worship like My servant David.”
John 4:24 (ESV) – God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.
Rise of the 5 fold for the purpose of equipping and mobilising
“In the past season the 5 fold ministries have been reinstated in My church but in this season there will be a great focus on equipping and mobilising My people for this is the hour when My army is arising and My bride is being perfected. I am sending those in these ministry positions to the highways and byways to equip and release My people for his time. There will also be a new focus on unity between the 5 fold and great companies will be raised up and released as my 5 fold ministries unite, for all 5 are needed to build and equip My church.”
Ephesians 4:11-12 (ESV) – And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ
Return to true John 13:35 discipleship
“This is truly a time of returning to the foundations of My teachings and ways. I am bringing My people back to the truth of My word. Surely the world will know My true disciples by those who walk in John 13:35; those who walk in love for one another. Love is the reflection of Me for I am love. Those who shine My light in the world and display the fruit of the Spirit, walk in love.”
John 13:35 (ESV) – By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
1 John 4:8 (ESV) – Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
1 John 4:16 (ESV) – So we have come to know and believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love, abides in God and God abides in him.
A mighty harvest but a call for labourers
“This era marks the time of the great harvest for all the world will hear the truth of My word before I return, for all will be given the opportunity to respond to My call. A great harvest of souls will come into My kingdom. The harvest will be global and will come, at times, in unexpected ways and in unexpected regions. The harvest will be seen in all areas of society for My word will go forth and My Spirit will move across all areas. It will be a time of Amos 9:13 where the plowman overtakes the reaper. A company of labourers will be called to the field and a great company will be involved in the harvest.”
Amos 9:13a (ESV) – “Behold, the days are coming”, declares the LORD, “when the plowman shall overtake the reaper and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed”
Matthew 9:37-38 (ESV) – Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.
Bypassing of those who are lukewarm but use of those who walk in Zechariah 4:6
“I have not called My people to be lukewarm, but to be on fire for Me. I have called them to be a light on a hill and to be like salt in the earth, shining light on the darkness and bringing transformation to their sphere of influence. This season is one where I am calling My people to stand up and be counted and to pick up their cross and follow My leading. A great move of My Spirit is coming to the earth. Those who will be used in this move are those who are surrendered to Me and allow My Spirit to move with freedom. This move will be without walls for it can’t be contained. All glory will be given to Me for it will occur not by might, nor by power but by My Spirit.”
Zechariah 4:6b (ESV) – Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.
Revelation 3:15-16 (ESV) – “I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.
Luke 9:23 (ESV) – And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”
Shaking to bring alignment
“On an individual, church and regional basis I am shaking those things which are not of Me and not in line with My truth and My ways in order for true alignment to come. For many, the shaking is an invitation to come into alignment. Those that embrace the shaking will be used in all I will bring forth in the time ahead. The shaking will not just be seen in the lives of individuals, but will be seen in regions and nations. This is the hour of alignment. Destinies of nations will be reclaimed and injustice and works of the enemy overturned. The shaking will bring with it a clear dividing as a clear separation will be seen between those that truly call Me Lord and those that serve two masters. Those that stand for righteousness and those who are conformed to the world. Those that live to see My name glorified and My kingdom advance and those that advance their own agenda. Those that are led by doctrines of man and fear of man or those that are led by My Spirit and live in reverent fear of Me.”
Hebrews 12:26 (ESV) – Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for God is a consuming fire.
Highlight on Israel
“The importance of Israel in My end time plans will be highlighted. Incorrect doctrines and theology regarding Israel and My church will be exposed in a greater way by those who carry the message of truth. Now is the time for My church to understand the role of Israel. Many ministries will arise in support of Israel and more and more of My people around the world will be called to pray for the nation of Israel and to pray for the Jewish people to know Me as the Messiah. Nations who support Israel will walk in blessing for My Genesis 12:3 promise will be evident for those who stand with Israel in the days ahead.”
Genesis 12:3 (ESV) – “I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Return to the days of Acts
“The book of Acts records the acts of My apostles. In the time ahead the world will take note of the acts of My faithful remnant, the company arising who will do great exploits in My name and be My witnesses to the ends of the earth. They will be filled with My Spirit and will boldly go, act and speak on the leading of My Spirit. Others will say, “Truly they are operating in John 14:12.” The book of Acts also records the life of the early church and I am awakening My church to who I have always called them to be in the world. Unity and love for each other will be the mark of My church. The focus will not be on the Word or the Spirit alone but on the need for both the Word and the Spirit. Those arising will be uncompromising in standing on the truth and power of My Word and will be vessels through which the Spirit moves powerfully. My people will unite for the purpose of Kingdom advancement in greater and greater ways in the days ahead as they lay down differences and take up a Kingdom mindset and Kingdom assignments.”
John 14:12 (ESV) – “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.”
Romans 11:5 (ESV) – So too at the present time there is a remnant, chosen by grace.
Rise in darkness but rise of the ‘overcomers’
“Great darkness will cover the earth but My remnant will rise up and overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony. They will know what it means to be co-heirs with Christ and will walk in their spiritual inheritance. They will use the keys of the kingdom and walk in their identity and authority in Me.”
Isaiah 60:1-2 (ESV) – Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the LORD will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you.
Revelation 12:11 (ESV) – And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their own lives even unto death.
Rise of companies of people
“Companies of My people will rise up in the anointing like that of My servants of old. Some will rise up in the anointing like that of Elijah, others like Daniel, others like Nehemiah, others like Ezekiel, others like Jeremiah, others like Joshua, and still others like John the Baptist. This is the era in which I am preparing the world for My return and making My bride ready. I am rebuilding My house. I am calling for repentance and a return to My ways. I am calling My people to take territory for My kingdom. It will not just be one person or ministry that leads the charge but whole companies that arise for such a time as this.”
The doorway to the new era has opened and we will begin to see the change in season that comes with this opening in ever increasing ways in the time ahead.
