Steve ShultzFrom the desk of Steve Shultz:

We've heard from prophetic voices as of late that are saying the same thing that we are in a great time of shifting and suddenlies of the Lord. This is a very encouraging word along those lines from Sandie Freed.

In this word Sandie shares:

On this Pentecost Sunday, I clearly heard the Lord say, "I am about to release My people into a new season of suddenlies." Believer, if you're in a building process and see no signs of breakthrough, let your faith arise! Your suddenly is ordained by Heaven get ready to build! Maybe you're in a dry season and you need rain! Dear one, God is opening up the floodgates on your behalf! Receive!

Please make sure and forward this on to all of your friends and loved ones... Let's get ready to receive the suddenlies of the Lord!

On Pentecost Sunday this year, I was ministering in our home church, Lifegate Church International, in Hurst, Texas. As most of you who are reading this probably know, Pentecost is a time celebrated by both Jews and Christians. For the sake of this article, I will not go into the historical celebration of Pentecost, but will focus on Pentecost from a Christian point of view. It seems that many evangelicals recognize Pentecost as a time in which the Church was born. However, there is much more that occurred on Pentecost!

On this Pentecost Sunday, I clearly heard the Lord say, "I am about to release My people into a new season of suddenlies." Now, when I heard that, I waited a bit to hear a rushing see flames of see angels with hot coals from the altar coming to set me aflame and cleanse me! But, when I didn't experience any of those manifestations, I reverted back to God speaking about "suddenlies." Immediately, I became excited as I thought about the correlation of Pentecost and how in Acts 2:1-2, it describes a "suddenly":

AND WHEN the day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all assembled together in one place, when suddenly there came a sound from Heaven like the rushing of a violent tempest blast, and it filled the whole house in which they were sitting. AMP (with emphasis).

The word "suddenly" in the above passage is a Greek word, aphno (pronounced af'-no) which means "unawares, i.e., unexpectedly." I believe we can agree that those who were gathered in the upper room were completely unaware and even surprised how the "power" (which Jesus told them to wait for) occurred as it did! Studying "suddenly" further, we realize that it is connected to other words that translate as something being manifested that was once unseen; and also that something became illuminated.

We know for a fact that on this day there really was suddenly a sound from Heaven like a rushing wind which filled the entire house where they were sitting. Then, there appeared tongues resembling fire which settled upon each of them. And also, suddenly they were filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:2-4). Think about this as we consider the word "suddenly" further.

On the day of Pentecost there was power released that was once unseen and unknown to Christ's followers. The Holy Spirit was illuminated, and the perfect will of God was released and also illuminated. This new "baptism" of the Holy Spirit filled them with a fresh fire, zeal and a "sending" anointing to spread the Gospel.

I believe that we have suddenly shifted into a fresh apostolic thrust, which is sending us forth with a fiery presence and boldness to fully demonstrate the raw power of God. You may not feel as if you are on fire right now, and maybe you've been crying out to receive fresh passion for His presence, but I assure you: You are going to one day awaken into your "suddenly" promise! I know that you are like me so hungry to demonstrate His love, and yes, His power, to heal, deliver, save and restore!

God is Amazingly Releasing Suddenlies!

Do you want God to do a sudden miracle in your life? Wouldn't you rejoice if suddenly you were set free from an addiction, bondage or a troublesome situation? If you are like me, I am ready to witness more of God's amazing power! (Photo via Pixabay)

Yes! God is amazing! Wouldn't you agree? Can you identify just why you might also believe that? Hopefully, you have witnessed the "receiving" part of being divinely amazed rather than just exercising another "repeat after me "sermon or Bible confession.

Now, please don't get me wrong; I believe in declaring the Word! However, there comes a time that we need to actually witness His power, miracles, demonstrations, breakthroughs and open heavens! Keep reading if you are hungry to position yourself for His incredible presence and release of divine suddenlies by building great faith.

Our Open Heaven

We have all been crying out for more "open Heaven" experiences. Believer, listen up! God is going to suddenly visit you in dreams and visions! Jacob wasn't expecting a visitation from Heaven and yet, at the end of the day, he laid his head on a rock and then suddenly experienced an open Heaven through a dream. In Genesis 28:10-16, is the Biblical account of Jacob's journey to Haran and how, during a dream, Jacob saw a stairway that reached Heaven and angels ascending and descending on it.

Then Jacob saw the Lord and heard Him confirm His identity as being the God of Abraham and his father, Isaac, along with the covenant He had made with Abraham and his descendants (that included Jacob!) Jacob awoke from the dream realizing that he had witnessed the gate of Heaven. Now, I'd definitely call that an open Heaven experience, wouldn't you? And think about this you can have a similar experience with the Lord experience confirmation, encouragement, revelation and an open Heaven experience through a dream! Get ready for your suddenly!

Jacob had no soft, down-filled pillow, so he made a rock his pillow. This is symbolic! Jesus is the "Rock" and when we can fully rest our head on Him, then suddenly we can witness the spiritual breakthroughs connected to an open Heaven! Attempting to pry open the heavens with our own strength and head knowledge (or doctrines) and seek more revelation will not connect us to our future.

Remember, Jacob dreamed about a ladder. Ladders bridge us to what the eyes of our hearts see. What we see with the eyes of our heart is more real than what we see in the natural. To experience a suddenly that will shift us from experiencing natural circumstances to open heavens requires our resting in Him!

Other Suddenlies

I am reminded of others in Scripture who experienced amazing "suddenlies." One of them was Noah who faithfully built an ark for close to a century and saw no signs of rain. Then one rained. Believer, if you're in a building process and see no signs of breakthrough, let your faith arise! Your suddenly is ordained by Heaven get ready to build! Maybe you're in a dry season and you need rain! Dear one, God is opening up the floodgates on your behalf! Receive!

Another account of a suddenly as a New Testament example is when Paul and Silas were imprisoned for casting out a spirit of divination while ministering in Greece. While in chains and shackles, they began to sing and praise God. I do believe they wanted out of that pit, but even more so I believe they had to remain focused on God and His overwhelming love. As a result, a sudden earthquake shook that place and they were loosed from captivity.

We can learn from their example to praise God in all the midst of every storm...when shackled with the cares of this world...when all hope seems lost...and suddenly He will move on your behalf! (Photo via Pexels)

Dear Believer, let me encourage you: A suddenly is about to occur in your life! He is about to shake you loose from yokes, chains and bondages. He will shake the heavens and the earth on your behalf.

His End-Time Army Includes You!

There is a mighty army rising up in this hour, fully equipped to be used for His glory and you are destined to be a part of that arsenal! God is loosing you from false accusations from your enemy. He will prove Himself faithful as He will suddenly dethrone every false prophecy which satan and his cohorts have spoken concerning you.

In my recent book, Silencing the Accuser; Eight Lies Satan Uses Against Christians, I identify how the enemy seduces our faith. When the enemy targets our faith, he lies to us concerning our identity. The result is often doubt, unbelief and fear. Another book I highly recommend is Letting Go of Your Limitations; Experiencing God's Transforming Power. I encourage you to read either of these books if you seem to be overwhelmed with shame, guilt, unworthiness or anything attached to identity issues.

Many times when the heavens feel like brass they really aren't! We must remember that God has promised us open heavens. Yet, the enemy comes to falsely accuse us during dry seasons. When we don't believe all that God says concerning who we are in Him, we become open prey to the enemy. Position yourself with divine faith now. The devil does not desire for you to have faith for a "suddenly!" But, let me assure you again a suddenly is waiting to happen on your behalf!

Get ready for His amazing suddenlies! He loves you and promises to watch over every word He has spoken concerning your future and divine destiny!

Allow me to pray for you:

Father God, I am thankful that You have released Your children into a season of suddenlies! Empower each of us to shift as You speak to us during dreams and visions. Thank You for divine revelation that allows us to see our circumstances as You see them. You have said that Your children are blessed; therefore, You will open the heavens and release our inherited blessings. Thank You, Lord, for the suddenlies that are released on our behalf! In Jesus' name! Amen.

In Christ,
