The Lord first began to speak to me regarding a "new day" back in February of this year. In January our family lost our house in a fire.
A month after the fire, a Mennonite couple from Pennsylvania heard about our tragedy. Although they had only met me once, the Lord asked them to send us a "prophetic gift." They went on a treasure hunt with the Lord to see what He wanted to say to us and give to us. Then they found it. A rooster!
A couple weeks later a very large box arrived at our house with a Pennsylvania postmark. When I opened it, I found a beautifully crafted, large, ceramic rooster. As I began to lift it from its box, the Spirit of the Lord immediately spoke to me, saying, "A new day is dawning!"

At that time, it was the very message of hope that I needed in the midst of personal loss and extreme weariness.
It's Both Personal and Corporate
Throughout the next few months, I kept that word near to my heart, it was a personal, prophetic word that spoke to me each morning when I would wake up and go into my kitchen and see our rooster. It was like a promise that was repeated, again and again, to my weary soul. I felt that it was a personal word to our family.
Then a friend, who is an intercessory leader in Newfoundland, Canada, asked me if I would look at some notes of hers and help her to write an article about the "midnight watch." As I read through her notes, I was deeply moved by the insight she had received, and the studying she had done about the midnight hour. I sat down to begin to write the article when the Lord began to speak a prophetic word for the Church to me. He said,
"A new day has already begun...the midnight hour has passed! Though the darkness tarries, declare to the people that a new day has dawned. The enemy recognizes this new day and is attempting to take advantage of the darkness that still lingers. He always tries to take advantage of the darkness. But I have called you to walk by faith not by sight. If you will move forward, I will allow you to bring the plans of the enemy to nothing.
Each day it is getting lighter than the day before, but you must have eyes to see and ears to hear My declaration of a New Day. Do not look back; do not say that the darkness has overtaken you, for even the darkness is light to Me. You are My witnesses that I have declared a new day has begun, and I will bring forth new things that you never expected to happen, things that only I can do. Enter into this new day with the expectation of a child...with hopes, dreams, and excitement.
I will accomplish all that I have said I will do, and you will look on as My witnesses. This is a work of grace by My Spirit. It has been grace alone that has ushered you into this new day, and it will be by grace that you will live and accomplish more than you ever imagined...by grace many will be healed and saved."
At the end of hearing this word I could hear, in my spirit, roosters crowing all throughout the world declaring, "It is a new day!"
Noises in the Night
A couple of years ago, my family was on holiday, and we were given a small cottage to stay in. Right outside of our bedroom window, there was a chicken pen, and within that pen was a very loud rooster that would begin crowing right about midnight. My husband and I thought we were going to go crazy with this annoying bird! It would awaken us from our sleep well before the light of day was appearing.
As I've been pondering this hour that we are in, this little picture of the rooster that crowed at the midnight hour has become quite prophetic. As I think upon all the mass initiatives such as The Call Nashville that just took place and will again in Las Vegas on October 20th, or in Canada, The Consecration Call that is currently going on and has representatives from over 30 nations participating, or God's Summer of Love Tour that is going on now, all I can think is, "The roosters are crowing at the midnight hour!"
Just as in the story of the rooster awakening us at midnight with its constant crowing, so are the prophetic voices throughout the nations crowing while it is still dark outside--to awaken the Church to the awareness of a new day.
The New Day Begins At Midnight
Although I believe that we are most likely further into this new day than the midnight hour, I do believe that we are still in the wee hours of the morning when most are still sleeping. But there are always those "early risers" who function best in the darkness of a new day.

These remnants of "early risers" are quite busy at this time in the Church. This is not just any new day, it is a new day that is announcing a whole new way of living. The best way I can say it, is that it is like "the Kingdom of Heaven is coming to Earth."
Remember though, not everyone is an early riser, some are wired by God to stay up late and wake up late...some just finished their shift and are still resting. Don't feel as though you have missed something if you are just becoming aware of this, because just as in the parable of the workers in the field, even those who came in the 11th hour will receive the same pay as those who came in the first hour.
"For the Kingdom of Heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire men to work in his vineyard. He agreed to pay them a denarius for the day and sent them into his vineyard.
"About the third hour he went out and saw others standing in the marketplace doing nothing. He told them, 'You also go and work in my vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is right.' So they went.
"He went out again about the sixth hour and the ninth hour and did the same thing. About the eleventh hour he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, 'Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?'
"'Because no one has hired us,' they answered.
"He said to them, 'You also go and work in my vineyard.'
"When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, 'Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.'
"The workers who were hired about the eleventh hour came and each received a denarius. So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius. When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner. 'These men who were hired last worked only one hour,' they said, 'and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.'
"But he answered one of them, 'Friend, I am not being unfair to you. Didn't you agree to work for a denarius? Take your pay and go. I want to give the man who was hired last the same as I gave you. Don't I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?'
"So the last will be first, and the first will be last."
Miracles Are Coming
This new day will be marked by the miraculous. I believe that we will see miracles like never before--physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
Those who have been on the wrong path will begin to "come to their senses" just because of what God is releasing in this new day. Prayers that have lain dormant for years will all of a sudden be answered. In this awakening, we will see the lost saved, the sick healed, and the prodigals return. This is the day that this generation has been longing for. We have crossed the Jordan after 40 years in the desert, and we are being circumcised and consecrated in this hour to possess the Promised Land.
The Sabbath Day of Rest
I also feel that this new day (season) that we have entered will be like the 7th day of the week and will provide a Sabbath Day of rest to God's people. In the past days we have worked and labored intensely. But this is a day of rest when we will come into seeing the sovereignty of God manifest as we focus on spending time with Him and one another. There has been a great preparation for this day, some of the preparations were of God and others were initiated by men, but all that was "God" will remain and everything else will fall away.
Though we are being awakened, we are awakening in a day of rest. God is asking us to cease striving; it is time to be still before the Lord.
"Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."
This rest will be very intimate! Though the activities of God will be seen throughout the world, His people will be enjoying the deepest intimacy with Him and one another that they have ever experienced.

The backdrop for this day is Psalm 23...it will be a backdrop of green pastures and still waters. It is a day where His people have restoration for their souls. It is also a day that He sets a table before us in the presence of our enemies. Will our enemy be present? YES...but we are to rest in this time, knowing that God is preparing a feast for us and He will not be stopped.
"The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."
Awaken to the new day, Bride of Christ. This is a Sabbath Day of rest for your soul. His restoration is here for you, His comfort is here for you, and His goodness and love will follow you all the days of your life.
