This is such an excellent word of the Lord by Sandie Freed for this year.
Yes, others have confirmed also that this is a year God wants us to come up higher...as there is new and great revelation He wants to reveal in this hour!
Now if that isn't a reason to draw closer to Him and come up higher...I don't know what is! Let God take you higher than ever before and get ready for the increase coming your way. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
I heard the Lord say, "The year 2019 is a year that I am calling My children to come up higher. There is revelation being given to those who hear this invitation and act upon it. As My Church draws nearer to Me, I will open doors of understanding and wisdom. As I release more understanding and godly wisdom to My Church, expect increase! Understanding and wisdom will activate the atmosphere for prosperity, inventions, medical breakthroughs and miracles. I am going to reveal many hidden mysteries concerning dreams and visions in this season.
"The enemy has been attempting to steal your dreams and I say to you: My Beloved, I am shutting the door to the thief that has attempted to steal, kill and destroy. I will shut the door to Pharaoh in this season. I am shutting the door to bondage and torment. Many have been attempting to move forward but are still hindered by the past.
"Know this: I am cutting you loose from your captivity and I am opening doors to freedom! Many doors will be opened by My hand in 2019. Be watchful, for I will prove to you that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! Yes, the Kingdom of Heaven is within your reach. Reach out your hand to Me and I will take you higher! I say to you again: Church, come up higher as I have much to reveal to you in this season."
Revelation in the Night Seasons
"Going up higher brings us to heavenly realms where revelation is given and revelation always involves divine encounters."
Just before 2019, I began to hear the Lord minister to me about going higher in Him. I realized that this is not something that I can do on my own, it is a heavenly invitation. And also, it is a completely supernatural experience! Since I can't go higher on my own, I asked the Lord how this was to happen. He then spoke to me about His holy angels who would take me to higher levels through the revelation they would bring during the night seasons.
He explained that while I will be sleeping, the angels will bring heavenly encounters and impart God's guidance and wisdom to me. Many times these revelations will show up in my dreams, and at other times there will be direct impartations. I have had divine encounters with angels before – they have occurred as I have slept – so I understood completely that God will use my dream time to impart to me.
I have also had divine encounters during open visions. Since visions are more "matter of fact" and need little interpretation, I know that visions will also increase in this season because God is increasing revelation. So, precious Believer, expect an increase of visions! Always keep in mind that dreams and visions are supernatural encounters and God is speaking through them today!
Begin to Dream with God Again!
Let me explain. I am referring to having goals, desires and plans for your life and future. These types of dreams are not dreams in the night season where God interjects His direction, correction and/or destiny during your dreams. But rather, these dreams are deep desires for your life that you want fulfilled. God cares about those dreams and He is saying that He wants you dreaming again! The enemy has brought interruptions, discouragement, disappointments and has attempted to steal from you, but it's time to run with those dreams again!
Many of God's children are called to be inventors. As God promises to release understanding and wisdom, there will be many new inventions coming forth. Though Solomon wasn't necessarily an inventor, due to his wisdom Israel enjoyed great prosperity. During Solomon's reign there was peace and Israel became a leading nation in commerce and industry. Some historians give Israel credit for many mining inventions that date back to Solomon's time. We are entering into a season of favor with God. As we grow in wisdom and understanding, it will open up doors to great opportunities and inventions that bring great wealth. Believe for it! (Photo via Unsplash)
God is Releasing You from Pharaoh!
The Lord spoke clearly to me about His destroying Pharaoh this year. I am reminded of the passage in Ezekiel 30:21 which says, "Son of man, I have broken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt..."
Pharaoh represents anything that attempts to hold you captive. Many of God's children are in bondage to addiction, sin, betrayal, rejection and fear. This is the year to be delivered from all bondages...but especially from fear! Fear will cause us to walk in continual unbelief. I know this for a fact because I have personally been delivered from the spirit of unbelief. Unbelief short-circuits your faith! It is a stronghold that affects nations, families and regions. Remember, it was because of unbelief that Jesus could not do many miracles in a certain regions/territories. This proves that when unbelief is active, it robs us of the full manifestation of the Kingdom of God being demonstrated. This is the year to challenge every unbelief structure in our lives.
One way to move past fear is to face it head on. Rather than run away, face your fear. I remember at one time in my life, I was afraid of the dark. I literally could not go to sleep in the dark! I went to sleep every night with the lights on in my bedroom. I finally had to face it head on. I turned out the lights and remained in the dark as I quoted the Word and proclaimed, "I do not have the spirit of fear!" Finally, I got delivered, but not until I faced fear head-on.
Someone reading this article is afraid of rejection. Well, precious one, this is your year to be delivered. Don't be afraid of rejection. Face your fear by developing new relationships. Don't allow fear of rejection to creep in. Rebuke that fear and enjoy new friends! Yes, face it head on! God promises to restore all that was lost in 2019—even friends and relationships!
And, as you do face fear head on, remember to quote the Word concerning that fear. There are two of the most powerful words in the universe that we all need to use...those words are "I Am!" God reminds us of who He is by saying "I Am!" He told Moses to tell Pharaoh that "I AM" sent him to deliver His people. As you face your past fear, declare "I Am!"
Say to your Pharaoh:
"I am not afraid!"
"I am healed!"
"I am delivered!"
"I am experiencing breakthrough!"
"I am prosperous!"
"I am loved!"
"I am special!"
"I am cutting you loose from your captivity and I am opening doors to freedom!"
Whatever it is that you need to confess for your breakthrough, use those two powerful words in your declaration. When you do this, you are agreeing with God's covenant concerning you.
The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand!
God says a lot about His mighty arm in Scripture. God is literally rolling up His sleeves this year to fight the enemy for us. Isaiah 52:10 tells us that God is laying bare His holy arm. This means that God is about to show forth His mighty strength. Believers, He is getting in the battle with you and fighting for you! 2019 is your year of victory as He promises to show off His mighty strength.
And, He also speaks about His hand. All through Scripture God speaks about protecting His children with His mighty hand! His hand is there for you right now! Take His mighty hand. He is your protector. He is protecting you from your enemy!
And there's more. He even says that with His "finger," He delivers us from the powers of satan! Jesus said this about delivering us from the evil one in Luke 11:20, "But if I drive out the demons by the finger of God, then the Kingdom of God has [already] come upon you."
Deliverance will increase in 2019 because it is a year where the Kingdom of God is at hand. Yes, it's within hand's reach! Everywhere Jesus went He preached the Kingdom message. Jesus said that when we preach the Gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons and raise the dead we are demonstrating the Kingdom! We will begin to see a greater release of the manifestation of Heaven on Earth this year.
Going Up Higher
When God calls us higher, it's for a purpose. He wants to share Heaven's wisdom and release greater understanding. Going up higher brings us to heavenly realms where revelation is given and revelation always involves divine encounters. Prepare yourself now for an increase of divine encounters. He wants to reveal His glory in this season! (Photo via Unsplash)
I pray for each of you to experience God's richest blessings this year. I pray that your dreams manifest and that you prosper in all that you do.
Many have been asking which of my books will empower them for this season. I would like to recommend any of these found on Elijah List's Website:
Understanding Your Dreams: How the Unlock the Meaning of God's Messages. This book is unique as it discusses deliverance that occurs in your dreams. Many do not understand how God exposes generational curses through dreams. Also, I teach you how to interpret your dreams in this book. And, there's so much more including 40 pages of symbols and interpretation!
Faith After Failure: How to Reconnect with Your Destiny. If you want to get past your past, then this book is for you. Reconnect with God's dream for your life!
Letting God of Your Limitations. This book helps you experience a limitless life. If you have been in bondage with religious performance, perfectionism, fear, rejection, or any hindrance, you need to read this so that 2019 is a year of experiencing God's very best!
I'm expecting to hear testimonies of how God broke you out of failure and fear and with His strong arm delivered you and set you free! And also how God opened the door to great breakthrough, healing and prosperity in 2019! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
