"2015: A Year of Prophetic Motion: The Pathway Into Our Destiny"
In order to fully understand God's works in these days, we must go back to the year 2012 and examine the progression of God's highest purposes. In 2012 the Lord began to establish His divine rule over those who had a desire to live more fully in His Kingdom. As a result of the establishment of His government, the Lord began to bring His people into divine order, and this was the main focus of 2013.
God's order established in our lives brought us into prophetic alignment in 2014. The Spirit of the Lord has positioned us in front of the spiritual doors that prophetic motion will move us through and will reveal the pathway that will lead us into the fulfillment of our destiny.
The Trumpet (12/29/14): I hear the Lord saying, "What do you see? Do you see the door that is before you? Have you positioned yourself by faith to access what I am providing? Walk the path before you, and you will find what I have prepared for you. You will not miss it, for it is your greatest desire to go on with Me. I will walk the path of life with you and I will reveal to you the greatness of your destiny. I encourage you to go higher than you have been before. I will be the breath beneath your wings that will lift you into spiritual places that you have not yet seen. Come, and enjoy the journey." (Photo via Freeimages)
Walk The Pathway to Prophetic Destiny
This path will lead to spiritual understanding of God's purposes for each of us. There will be designated places on this path that will become flash points of God's glory that will transform and enlighten the spirit of man.
Proverbs 20:27 The spirit of a man is the lamp of the LORD, searching all the inner depths of his heart.
This path will produce spiritual life to those who follow the Holy Spirit, who will lead us along the path. And He will reveal hidden mysteries as we go.
Psalm 16:11 You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Isaiah 45:3 I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the LORD, who call you by your name, am the God of Israel.
God Will Provide You "Prophetic Motion"
The term "prophetic motion" was defined in a vision as being a time of spiritual movement, activity, advancement, and acceleration.
In the vision, I was standing outside of our Church building when I saw a giant wave coming toward the Church. At first, I thought it was a wave of water, but as it came closer, I could see that it was not.
I saw what looked like a cloud of electrical impulses – lights that flashed back and forth through the cloud, bringing colors of the rainbow into play. (Photo by Lillis Boyer "River of Life" via elijahshopper.com)
I then understood that this was the glory of God coming to the Church as described in Habakkuk 3:3-4: "God came from Teman, the Holy One from Mount Paran. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of His praise. His brightness was like the light; He had rays flashing from His hand, and there His power was hidden."
As I watched this cloud of glory come to the Church, I saw people who had been aligned with the spiritual doors of this last season. They were patiently waiting to go through the door, but were unsure of themselves. Then, the glory of God came upon them and provided the "prophetic motion" that was required for movement through the door and onto the path that provided spiritual life.
Thus, the spiritual journey for this next season begins. The path leads us up the mountain of God. We will go higher in this season than ever before. It will be a time of spiritual elevation for those who follow the path of life. And...
"They shall speak of the glory of Your Kingdom, and talk of Your power" (Psalm 145:11).
The "Season of Wings" has begun, and we will be enabled by the Holy Spirit to go higher into realms of the Spirit. If we are to know God more completely, then we must go higher.
Isaiah 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
The cry of our hearts will be:
"Show me Your ways, O LORD; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; on You I wait all the day" (Psalm 25:4-5).
The Season of Wings, and Its Symbols
1. God's Wings – His Covering.
Psalm 61:4 I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. (Photo by Lillis Boyer "Under His Pinions, The Secret Place" via elijahshopper.com)
2. The Eagle – represents prophetic vision, identified in Revelation 4:7 as a flying eagle.
3. The Dove – power of the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 3:16 When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.
Acts 1:8 "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."
4. Angels – angelic help and protection.
Ezekiel 1:24 When they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of many waters, like the voice of the Almighty, a tumult like the noise of an army; and when they stood still, they let down their wings.
5. God's people – going higher.
Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
Spread your wings; mount up. Purpose to go higher than you have before. It is time for elevation.
Small Straws In A Soft Wind by Marsha Burns (12/29/14): "This is the beginning of a time of elevation when you will need to set your sights on higher ground. If you will activate your faith in this direction, your access to spiritual revelation and growth will be amazing. You must, however, make a deliberate decision to receive the greatest benefit of this season," says the Lord. Isaiah 49:11 I will make each of My mountains a road, and My highways shall be elevated.
The Signs of the Blood Red Moons
These moons will again occur on Israel's feast days of Passover (4/4/15) and the Feast of Tabernacles (9/28/15). We will continue to see these blood red moons as a sign of civil unrest in the nations in the end of the age.
Luke 21:25 And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring.
Luke 21:9-10 "But when you hear of wars and commotions, do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately." Then He said to them, "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom."
The anointing of this season will produce lightning that will come from the fire of the Holy Spirit – much like that which comes from the living creatures. (Photo by Lillis Boyer "His Voice Is Over Many Waters" via elijahshopper.com)
Ezekiel 1:13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches going back and forth among the living creatures. The fire was bright, and out of the fire went lightning.
This power will defeat satan's works against God's people.
Luke 10:18-19 And He said to them, "I saw satan fall like lightning from Heaven. Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you."
The authority of the sons of God will manifest this year as lightning that comes against satan's kingdom.
Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.
"...He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire" (Matthew 3:11), and the fire will produce prophetic lightning strikes (proclamations) that will defeat satan's plans and attacks.
Don't Stop; Maintain Momentum
The glory of God will give us a spiritual push into this season, but it will be up to us to maintain momentum. Momentum is defined as the strength or force that something has when it is moving. It allows something to continue or grow stronger or faster as time passes.
The Trumpet (12/1/14): And the Lord says, "If you will do that which is written in My Word, then you will indeed receive the benefits of the Kingdom of God that I have in store for you. For the storehouses are about to open, and the blessings are about to flow. What I have reserved for you as the children of the end of the age will surprise all of you. My goodness is about to come in unique and powerful ways – in ways that you cannot even fathom. But, let it be known to your spirit that I can give to you abundantly and exceedingly above all that you can imagine, think, or believe. Expect My goodness to come. Embrace it today and receive it."
If we will do the work of maintaining spiritual momentum, multiplied blessings will come in this season.
Ephesians 3:20-21 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the Church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Learn How to Access Spiritual Vitality
Many of God's people will learn in this season how to access spiritual vitality that will strengthen their bodies. Divine health will become a new reality to those who learn to abide in the presence of the Holy Spirit. (Photo via Pixabay)
Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
The Holy Spirit will give spiritual life by quickening your body with spiritual power that will invigorate you so that divine healing will flow. Spending time in the presence of the One who has the gift of healing (see 1 Corinthians 12:9) will bring the "times of refreshing" that is needed by the Body of Christ.
An Epic New Sound
A new sound is being brought forth by those who are truly the psalmists of this season. I was reminded of this reality when I was preparing this message. I heard this new sound (music) audibly in our house. I thought that Marsha might be playing her keyboard, but upon inquiring of her, she was not playing, and no other source of music in our house was discovered.
I then understood that the Lord was calling attention to what He has in mind, which is that a new sound will bring expansion to the pathways that are being established in this season. This sound will produce visions and will birth prophetic words to give direction and reveal God's hidden mysteries – those reserved for such a time as this.
The glory of this season has been defined in prophetic words as legendary and epic. Legendary is defined as something told about in a legend; historic content. Epic is defined as very imposing or impressive, surpassing the ordinary.
Word by Marsha Burns: This season will present opportunities to interact with history supernaturally. It's going to be big – the stuff that legends are made of. But, individually, we must stay focused and not be distracted with temporary and trivial pursuits.
Haggai 2:9 "The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former," says the LORD of hosts. "And in this place I will give peace," says the LORD of hosts.
2015: The Conclusion
This season will bring glorious opportunities to the Body of Christ. Tremendous spiritual growth will come to those who choose to allow God's prophetic motion to move them into His purposes.
I assure you that you will not be disappointed if you choose to take this spiritual journey into 2015.
