The Quickening Anointing: Catch the Wave!
In recent weeks, I have felt God's heart of compassion for those in their 30s to 60s who are burned out, stressed out and have never realized their dreams. If that is you, know that you are very dear to God's heart and His eyes are focused on you. The Lord impressed upon me that it is time for a "quickening anointing" to be released. Imparting that "quickening anointing" is part of my mandate in this year. Wherever I minister, this is the message and the impartation: "It is time to step into a fresh baptism of God's love that will reawaken, revive and restore your anointing." The great awakening to the fresh baptism of His love is key to launching the love revolution that will release you to take your place in the coming revival.
Even now, the Lord is releasing a "quickening anointing" to those who have been crying out for revival and those who seem to have lost their vision and passion as the years and tears of life have weighed them down. You will carry a new anointing. But first – you are in need of the quickening anointing that will revive you. Then, fresh vision, authority and anointing will enable you to carry out your assignments and fulfill your destiny.
"The quickening anointing" will restore individuals to their sacred destiny and accelerate their gifts and anointing. To "quicken" means a reviving, a refreshing, an increasing of life (see Psalm 71:20; 85:6; 119:37,40,88; Isaiah 57:10). It often has reference to the resurrection from the dead (see 1 Corinthians 15:36).
Many in mid-life feel dead to dreams, visions and passion. It takes a supernatural impartation of the quickening spirit to release you from the spirit of this world. Position yourself to receive it. Cry out for it as you lie down in your home and soak in worship. Cry out for a quickening of your spirit and a fresh love revolution to begin with you.
Power, Love and a Sound Mind
This is what the Lord showed me is coming:
"The coming love revolution will unleash the baptism of God's love so outrageously, that many will be transformed quickly. The anointing will break the yoke and impart the healing many desperately need. Men and women will be positioned quickly into assignments reserved for them." (from Supernatural Anointing, Destiny Image, January 2012).
Those who walk in prophetic and apostolic anointing seem to agree that God desires to increase the level of anointing in our lives and that this anointing contains three equal components: power, love and a sound mind. This power includes the gifts of the Spirit and the anointing specific to the assignment; love enables us to carry the anointing to others and sustain us along the way; the sound mind is full of joy and peace because it is ruled by faith, hope and love.
The "quickening anointing" will increase love, power and a sound mind in you. God's anointing will cause an inrush of joy and peace that will shatter the mental sabotage and low energy many have labored under in recent years. It will fill you with His outrageous love and bring life to you emotionally, spiritually and physically. New vision and assignments will open to you. As some let the old visions and stagnant personal prophetic words go, the Lord will reveal new revelation to you about your assignment in this season of your life. No matter how old you are, your future has just begun and an impartation of the "quickening anointing" will release your youthfulness and you will run with revived energy and soar into the revelatory heights.
I've never been so excited about what God is doing in these days. A love revolution is forming far out to sea like a series of waves that build on one another until the whole earth is consumed. The first set of waves releases a quickening anointing. The second set of waves, a love revolution. The third set of waves will sweep across the world and release a worldwide revival. I believe that we can position ourselves to catch this incoming set of waves that will release to you a "quickening spirit" or "quickening anointing." It is being released – now.
Catch the wave!
