Many can sense that we are in times of great shifting and change, even over these summer months.
This recent article from Danielle Dixon of Australia will help you to recognize some of the change coming:
I pray that the words from the Lord and revelation in this article will help you to prepare for the change that is here. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
I recently had a nudge from the Lord to revisit this prophetic word. I feel the fullness of time is approaching the Body of Christ, and many of us believe we will see a glorious Church arise out of the ashes.
"But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, 'Abba! Father!' So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God." (Galatians 4:4-7)
For those who are called to travail, and those who are called to the groanings of the Spirit and to birthing, this is your hour. The enemy has tried to cause many of you to grow weary in well doing. Shake off the dust of discouragement, set your faces like flint and walk in the purposes of God.
A Change in the Atmosphere
This word, below, was delivered by the Lord when He appeared in my room in the very early hours of January 25th, 2016. This encounter happened after a time of seeking the Lord about what His purpose is for the Church, and asking Him when we will see the full manifestation of Christ's anointing in the Body of Christ.
We have had many pressures in the Body of Christ, distracting God's people from their true identities and callings. Even though darkness is covering the earth, we are much closer to seeing the first fruits of this word then we realize. This is what the Lord said, which I believe is starting to unfold.

"There is change in the atmosphere of the Church. It has been mostly an optional thing in people's lives, but it will become a necessity. Where the Church has been such hard work and a chore for many, it will become a joy.
"The Church has an assignment from Heaven to open up the doors of healing. Wells of old will be dug by the Church, wells that were dug many centuries ago that have longed for those who are seeking to unplug their reserves.
Restitution and Resurrection
"My Body was created to hold My glory. My Body is a vehicle of restitution."
1. The act of restoring to the rightful owner something that has been taken away, lost, or surrendered.
2. The act of making good or compensating for loss, damage, or injury; indemnification.
3. A return to or restoration of a previous state or position.
The Lord said, "You will see, as My people start to have a new-found love for My Church, things will be restored, things will be healed, things will be put back into order – especially My family. Where My Body has been weak and sickly, I am sending My resurrection power, causing this sleeping giant to rise up and come to its feet.
"My authority rests on her. She is My Bride and she is about to start a courtship that will change the earth. Many have come in the name of My Church and been powerless; this is about to change. Those who have humbled themselves and called on My name will see a greater power than the early Church.
The Whole Earth, Covered in His Glory
"The job of the Church is to embrace the Spirit of Christ and allow My Spirit to be the center of My family. Fathers will arise, mothers will arise, sons and daughters will arise. It is the hour for this generation to declare, 'Come to church and see God's power!' Many have said, 'Come to church and be entertained; come and be comforted; come and be encouraged,' but in this hour it will be said, 'Come and watch your life change from devastation to power!'
"Some people think that the Church is finished, that it has served its time on Earth, but I am telling you, its greatest hour is about to be revealed. This is My Body and nothing will ever stop the predestined plan for glory to flood the earth."
"He did this to present her to Himself as a glorious Church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault." (Ephesians 5:27) (Photo via Unsplash)
"The whole earth will be covered with My glory and men will speak of My goodness. Where the Church has been defeated, defamed and deflated, this image is being overshadowed by My goodness to defeat the enemy, to defame the enemy, to deflate the enemy.
"All the shame and guilt that has been placed upon My family is going to be lifted. The Church is to stand up in My righteousness in these days. People will have a new song in their hearts, one of victory, one of joy to work together to see the gates of Hell not prevail against their Church family.
"I have told you I am a God of restoration, a God of hope, a God of victory; you are about to see these things in My Church. Gone will be the days when you will have to convince others of My goodness. They will taste and see that I am good!
"Things that were last on the earth will be made first, and My beloved Church that I love deeply, will be one of those things. I will bless those who bless her. Those who love her will see her glory."
Jesus is wanting to encourage His servants to keep pushing forward. I pray for strength and hope to be resurrected in your heart today as you read this word. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
