Lately, I have been sensing a time of transition on a widespread scale. I believe the Lord has placed many who hunger for Him in an extended time of learning and preparation; but He is getting ready to release these emerging leaders who have been prepared in the secret place—individuals who may not even see themselves as leaders but whom the Lord has been hiding away and preparing "for such a time as this."
The time for release into unique callings and destinies is near, and as I pressed in to hear what the Lord might have to speak to these kings and queens of the Kingdom (for that is their true identity)...those whom He is calling out from the hidden place of preparation and into the place of influence and authority over the enemy, in order to bring the Kingdom...this is the word I heard Him speaking over us:
There Is More
"There is more available—more of My presence, more of My power, more of the anointing. Nothing can stop the "more" that I have for you; it is part of your Kingdom inheritance that I purchased for you and it is rightfully yours. In order to walk in the fullness of what I have for you, all that is needed is for you to freely receive of Me." (Photo via Unsplash)
Receive of Me
"Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven." (Matthew 18:4)
"The posture of receiving is a posture of humility. That is why I have taken My friends through a time of purification and humbling, because it is in this place of humility, which I have brought you to, that you can freely receive the full measure of what I want to pour out for you.
"My kings of the Kingdom are being refined. They are emerging from the fire of My holy presence with renewed passion for Me, forged in the fire of My glory that burns away human pride. When freed from self-sufficiency, these leaders will emerge with renewed capacity to carry the full measure of anointing I have for them.
"In the fires, I have been teaching you to receive of Me, because the fullness of the Kingdom is given to those who are able to receive it. Become as a child, and be willing to receive."
Loose Yourself and Step Into Your Fullness
"Shake yourself from the dust and arise; be seated, O Jerusalem; loose the bonds from your neck, O captive daughter of Zion." (Isaiah 52:2)
"In this season you are emerging from, I have broken the chains the enemy used to bind you. Now it is time to loose yourself. I have freed you so that you can set others free. My child, rise up and shake off those shackles. Walk in the freedom I won for you. I have done My part; now you do yours. This is your jubilee. Loose yourself from the chains with which you hold yourself back; it is time to hold back no more. Step into your fullness."
"In this new season, it is time to rise up. I have prepared you and purified you and strengthened you. Now you need to trust what I did in you and what I put inside you. I have deposited so many things into your spirit this past season that you don't know about yet, but you will see them manifest when their time arises, and you will see what it is I did to prepare you for your moment while you were in the hidden secret place with Me.

"My presence has changed you; My Spirit has transformed you. Behold, I am doing something new, and you are the evidence of the new that I am about to do. When people see the way you have been transformed by My love in the secret and hidden place, as you emerge from the transforming fire of My presence, they will know that I am up to something new.
"Shepherds and leaders arise; I have prepared you for such at time as this. The process I've done in you is the forerunner of what I will do for many who will follow after you as you follow after Me. Lead the charge, and never look back. I have prepared you; you are ready and it is time to rise up."
