The Lord recently spoke a word to Mary Dorian: "Christmas is coming early this year!"
Christmas is both a wonderful time to celebrate our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, as well as be with our loved ones. Yet it can also be a very hard time for many as well, for various reasons.
I want you to read this word by Mary and be full of expectancy that God can and will bring you the desires of your heart and you'll start to see them manifest in this Christmas season and beyond! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
One night, before falling asleep, I heard the Lord say, "Christmas is coming early this year!" I was so surprised to hear this from the Lord, and I waited with expectant joy to hear more about what He could mean. He then said, "Tell My people to allow their expectancy to rise, just like they did when they were children waiting for Christmas to come; counting the days with hopeful expectation.
"This year, those things that they have been waiting for and diligently praying for are going to arrive and be manifested even sooner and quicker than Christmas. I have heard their cries and felt their frustration as they have wondered if they would ever see circumstances and loved ones healed and changed, or families coming together and financial breakthroughs manifesting. They've wondered if they would see deliverance for their children from addictions and relationships healed."
There will be so many answers to prayer as we expect to experience something good that we have been waiting for.
In Jeremiah 33:3 MSG it says, "Call to Me and I will answer you. I'll tell you marvelous and wonderful things that you could never figure out on your own." Then in verse 11 it says, "But the time is coming when you're going to hear laughter and celebration, marriage festivities, people exclaiming, 'Thank God-of-the-Angel-Armies. He's so good! His love never quits'...I'll restore everything that was lost in this land. I'll make everything as good as new. I, God, say so."
Decade of Revelation
In this new Hebrew year of 5780, we have been told to "Open wide our mouths, so the Lord will fill them." The next decade, 2020, will be one of marvelous and brilliant revelation. The wilderness time is over. No more dry bones in the desert. This decade will be a season of both oil and wine. Oil is symbolic of the anointing of the Holy Spirit and supernatural energy and power. Wine is symbolic of joy and intimate love with the Bridegroom.
The Spirit says, "I am sending forth, in My name, a prophetic people who will declare the future. They will be both intentional and courageous. They will see, from My perspective, the changes, the seasons, and the new things that are to come. The rhema word that they speak will be sharper than a double-edged sword. All levels of influence will be touched by these declarations – especially Hollywood. and these prophetic words will not return to Me until they accomplish everything I have sent them to do."
The Presence of God
The Lord does not look at time they way we do. We measure time by hours, days weeks, months and years. So, when speaking to me of the coming new year, I got the impression that the Lord was speaking of the decade from 2020 to 2030. During this next decade, I believe that the tangible presence of the Father will be felt in extraordinary ways in churches across our nation and the world, but also in some very unlikely places.
God visited the earth through Jesus, who was Emmanuel, God with Us, and now He will be experienced in some amazing and supernatural ways in this new decade. His glory, the essence of His deep love, will be felt by so many people. The world is groaning and waiting to know Him and He will move in marvelous and beautiful ways.
The glory of God and His presence will touch the current generation of young people, especially those in the great colleges and universities across our nation. I see millions with their hands raised, gathered in the quads, auditoriums, classrooms, and all over the campuses, praising and worshiping the Lord. I see them literally holding crosses and the Word of God as if they were treasures, saying, "This is what we have been looking for; to Know God and to receive Christ!" Through them, so many lives will be changed.
A Few More Things
Habakkuk 2:14 says, "For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea." The earth is mostly made up of water. There are still many mysteries that are waiting to be revealed in the oceans and seas. Scientists will find many discoveries in the waters that will benefit mankind in this new decade. Things like cures for illnesses, new ways of growing things, new materials for making things and the harvest of many natural resources and gems.
There is so much to learn and so many treasures to draw from, even scientific info about light and longevity. Cancer will be dealt with in new ways in this new generation. There will be success in treating cancer once and for all, without it returning. I believe the Church will lead the way in this because healing and miracles will be seen across our nation. Oh, what wonderful things we will see and do for the Kingdom.
The nation of North Korea will come to life. Its people will awaken and rise up and cast off all restraints. Other nations will do the same. Nations that were previously closed will open to receive the Gospel, and some will be won to Christ in one day. There is so much more: The Body of Christ will not just raise up in this decade (all of its members fully awake) but they will RISE UP! The Body of Christ will be secure in the experience of being seated with Christ and resurrection power will flow. Oh, yes, it will flow through you and me.
I pray that the Father of glory, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would impart to you the riches of the Spirit of wisdom and the Spirit of revelation to know Him through your deepening intimacy with Him. I pray that the light of God will illuminate the eyes of your imagination, flooding you with light until you experience the full revelation of the hope of His calling – that is the wealth of God's glorious inheritance that He finds in us, His holy ones!
"I pray that you will continually experience the immeasurable greatness of God's power made available to you through faith. Then your lives will be an advertisement of this immense power as it works through you! This is the mighty power..." (Ephesians 1:17-19, TPT)
