Intro from Julie A. Smith:
As I read through Fiorella Giordano's latest article I thought, "This word is full of promise!" She specifically mentions promises lost from 2011 going forward. I had to think for a moment, "What happened from 2011 that was lost?" And it hit me immediately with an aha moment and me saying, "Now I remember!"
Fiorella's word hit home hard with me...and I know it will for many of you. I truly believe that 2018 will be a year of "abundant fruit" and what was lost years ago, which looked like set-backs, only went deeper into the ground to produce much greater fruit for your future.
What many have thought dead has been merely sleeping. What seemed to have died in 2011 is being called back to the forefront of the "race"... He is coming with a magnificent restoration that will set the records straight—you will gain years. You will gain 7-fold of what has been lost. Watch as He gives you portions of your destiny that had been appointed for years ahead. The delay that sought to derail you has positioned you into the acceleration of your future.
As a runner, I always enjoy reading words about running our race, acceleration and getting to the finish-line. God is breathing new life into you so that you can finish well! "...let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith..." (Hebrews 12:1-2).
Be highly encouraged to run the "new race" set before you, as God restores what seemed lost and accelerates your future! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"God is Opening the Door of Hope From 7 Years Ago (2011)"
The Spirit of God is moving in the unseen and seen places of our lives. He is moving in places we have forgotten. He is brooding and moving with resurrection power—with life abundant. He is stirring and awakening what has been laying dormant deep within our spirits. God is coming with a visitation of an abundant life—of goodness. What many have thought dead has been merely sleeping. What seemed to have died in 2011 is being called back to the forefront of the race.
As we enter into 2018, the restoration of the manifestation of these things will begin to take form. The month of February in 2018 will be the renewed gateway and everything is being aligned right now in the spirit. I have seen the dates of February 19-27 as appointed for the "Unfinished Limits". They are the horizons that God casts into the form of vision in people's destinies, which were attacked because the enemy tried to abort the promise. What has seemed dead, I tell you now—is alive.
"2018 Will be a year where the gateway of your destiny and future will open and birth years of promises that have been delayed."
The Spirit of the Lord sees what is hidden. He sees the words that have yet to be fulfilled in you, and He is watching over each and every one of them to perform them. He is awakening the future with the passion of His fire and avenging every loss—everything that the locusts have eaten and destroyed. He will visit to transform it into something completely new. He is coming with a magnificent restoration that will set the records straight—you will gain years. You will gain 7-fold of what has been lost. Watch as He gives you portions of your destiny that had been appointed for years ahead. The delay that sought to derail you has positioned you into the acceleration of your future.
Dream 1 from 2011
Dream: It was February of 2011, and there was a woman who was pregnant with twins. She was at full-term and in a season of the fullness of time and expectation. I could feel the hope and expectation, but the birthing of the babies did not happen. I knew the season was many months (from February to August, specifically). The opportunity did not fully flesh out. However, the babies were not dead.
The mother carrying them experienced the grief of not seeing them—to her it felt like death. I could see her through these past years still carrying the babies in her womb, but she was unaware because it was so dormant. At times, there would be glimpses of the memory but they felt like a vapor in the midst of her present life. Yet the babies were not dead. They were asleep, waiting to be awakened again.
Interpretation: As I came out of the dream, I understood that many people in the year 2011 had been carrying a double portion of prophetic promise from the Lord. I sensed that as the season moved toward August, the expectation grew but the fullness of it did not come to pass. I sensed that there were many people who experienced a level of breakthrough and the beginning of the opening of a major door of destiny, but this door closed suddenly and the promise was never able to breakthrough. I sensed that this happened in an instant, and it was very unexpected. I believe that many people have let go and surrendered these promises to such an extent that they have forgotten that they are still carrying them. But God wants to bring them back to life.

Revisiting 2011, But Played Out Different—Now
I saw the year 2011 play out again as if God was bringing it back, full circle. But the context had changed and the atmosphere of the season was different. There was a change of image—of identity. I could see the edge that 2011 had, like when you are watching a show and the image of the show is branded a certain way with a certain style and fashion. The way of 2011 had been very edgy; very coarse, intense and rough. But the image of 2018 was different. It was soft, tender, kind, beautiful, creative and flowing. I could see the substance of the word and the unveiling of it—the presentation of it to the earth was going to be very different. It was going to embody the form of betrothal—of divine covenant.
As I prayed into this dream, the passage in Hosea 2:14-23 came to me.
"Therefore, behold, I will allure her, bring her into the wilderness and speak kindly to her. Then I will give her her vineyards from there, and the valley of Achor as a door of hope. And she will sing there as in the days of her youth, as in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt. It will come about in that day," declares the Lord, "That you will call Me Ishi and will no longer call Me Baali. For I will remove the names of the Baals from her mouth, so that they will be mentioned by their names no more. In that day I will also make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, the birds of the sky and the creeping things of the ground. And I will abolish the bow, the sword and war from the land, and will make them lie down in safety.
"I will betroth you to Me forever; yes, I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and in justice, in lovingkindness and in compassion, and I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness. Then you will know the Lord. It will come about in that day that I will respond," declares the Lord. "I will respond to the heavens, and they will respond to the earth, and the earth will respond to the grain, to the new wine and to the oil, and they will respond to Jezreel. I will sow her for Myself in the land. I will also have compassion on her who had not obtained compassion, and I will say to [those who were not My people, 'You are My people!' And they will say, 'You are my God!'"
God's Word is sacred, it does not return to Him void. It is full of purpose and He is breathing life into the promises that He gave you. He is breathing life into the destiny that has been asleep. Though circumstances shut your future down, though people failed you, abandoned you, misjudged you, accused you, slandered you and stole from you—God's Word remains sovereign.
"The Spirit of the Lord sees what is hidden. He sees the words that have yet to be fulfilled in you and He is watching over each and every one of them to perform them."
In these past few months, God has been shifting and realigning your life to bring you out of the valley of Achor (which means trouble, pain and grief). Your pain—that promise that has been deferred—God is resurrecting into a supernatural hope. Hope is the gateway of the future. Without hope there is no expectation, and where there is no expectation, there is no vision. God has not appointed you to perish for the lack of vision. On the contrary, He has appointed for you to have a hope, to have a vision; for you to believe that there is a future. That it is appointed and fixed—that it has been worth the fight and the struggle. God sees your struggle, and He is jealous for you and His Word.
"So will My Word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. For you will go out with joy and be led forth with peace; the mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands." (Isaiah 55:11-12)
2018 Will be a year where the gateway of your destiny and future will open and birth years of promises that have been delayed.
The breath of God, in its infinite capacity, is breathing and moving through every grave that holds dead dreams; through the graves of hope deferred; through everything that has tangled your faith and paralyzed your movement. He who was and is, and is to come is speaking life into the make-up of who you are, confounding the frequency of the sound of every voice that speaks against your destiny and divine design.
"Brethen, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, I press on towards the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:13-14) (Photo via Public Domain Photos)
God will heal your vision in the midst of the impossibility that He turns into possibility. The loss and wilderness you have walked through these past 7 years will turn into a gateway of hope. He will make your vision whole in His love, and your heart will overflow with life and with a testimony that will resound all around you. Your Redeemer lives!
