Intro From Julie A. Smith:
This short but potent word by Munday Martin is spot on! Although Munday is addressing married women here, this is a word for ALL women.
It IS an hour for women in ministry to be raised up. Prophetic voices, social and justice advocates and moms (to a broken world) is what I see God highlighting in women in this hour.
I also feel it's a time of new dreams being birthed in women and stepping out in faith to what God has called you to. It's your time... also I'm hearing Zechariah 4:10, "Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin..."
Pay attention to your dreams – a lot of new ministries are going to be birthed out of them!
Blessings on your journey,
Julie A. Smith, Editor

An Hour For Women in Ministry: A Company of Strong Women with Integrity and Love Are Being Released
It is the Hour for Women in Ministry!
I recently had a powerful dream where I was shown a woman being raised up in ministry who was the wife of a well-known minister here in the United States. This minister has a strong prophetic voice in our nation. Her revelation was so powerful and her focus was so strong on building up the broken Body of Christ to let them truly see who they are in Christ.
Now here is the interesting thing. I could see that the mantle God had put on her was so powerful, it made the man in ministry nervous a little bit that the spotlight was being taken off of him directly and was on them both. I could see that there was a special anointing on women to be released into media ministry.
The good news is, the man supported her and the transition of her promotion, but I could sense he had to adapt to it. This is a transition that many male leaders will also have to adapt to as they begin to train, equip, and release the Deborah company into the nations.
Visitation and Encounter in France
I am reminded of a wonderful friend I have in Montelimar, France. The last time I visited her church in France in May, a literal visitation of the cloud of God's glory came into the meeting. Everyone in the building ran forward in a baptism of the Fire of God. Many were weeping, shouting, laughing, shaking, and convulsing in the power of almighty God! I was speechless!
We dared not play church as usual, but most of us were flat on our faces as God came to simply wrap His arms around His children. Some in the meeting had supernatural weight loss miracles. Many received healings. Many testified that they had never had such a baptism of fire like that ever before!
I reflected on this encounter and visitation with this friend of mine who lives in France. For years she has been on her knees praying for and pioneering something fresh in the nation of France. Her courage in the face of challenges to see revival pour out in her nation inspires me. It reminds me of Joan of Arc in her time.
Courage That Cannot Be Quenched
Joan of Arc once said, "One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying."
This is what the Lord showed me in the dream about women in ministry: They will be marked by a courage that can not be quenched. They will truly LIVE!
Here are some verses to mediate on as this word is going into many women right now reading this article:
Isaiah 41:10 Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxious, look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:13 For I am the LORD your God, who upholds your right hand, Who says to you, 'Do not fear, I will help you.'
Isaiah 54:4 Fear not, for you will not be put to shame; Neither feel humiliated, for you will not be disgraced; But you will forget the shame of your youth, And the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more.
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
Men in ministry stand by your woman. It is their time to be heard and their time to shine in the Body of our Lord Jesus! A mighty roar is being released!
Let this company of strong women with integrity and love be released Lord, in Jesus name.
