Great Change Is Coming
On January 13, 2023, during my prayer time, the Lord brought me to a beautiful beach in the spirit. While walking in the spirit beside Jesus along the seashore, I felt a very strong wind blowing on us. Jesus explained, "Change is coming worldwide. The wind of My Spirit will blow and bring great changes. All that is not rooted in Us will be blown away and uncovered for all to see.
"My Spirit will bring a great refreshing to those who stood fast and cried out on behalf of their nations for My perfect will to be done here on Earth as it is in Heaven. Cling fast to Us, and you will not be moved when this great shaking happens."
On January 16, 2023, upon hearing troubling reports about worldwide famine and other predictions of terrible global events, I brought My concerns to Father. He said, "If I don't intervene, that is the plan the enemy has β to destroy your nation and the nations of this world. But I am going to act in this hour. Their wicked schemes will be exposed, and those things planned will be stopped suddenly! Starvation, plagues, deadly viruses and poverty are all part of his bag of tricks, as well as to corrupt the morals of the people. He will be stopped, and those who follow closely behind him will be stopped as well. Many will leave his camp as their blind eyes are opened."
While Father told me about this upcoming change, I remembered a terrible accident I had seen a few months ago. A car was overturned on the opposite side of the road. State police, local police and rescue vehicles were scattered all about the road. Those who were on that side of the road were at a total standstill for at least five miles. On our side of the road, the cars slowed down to observe what had happened, but we were not affected by the accident at all.
The Lord revealed to me that this was a prophetic picture of what is coming. There will be a great overturning and exposure of all that has been hidden for everyone to see. Those who follow the Good Shepherd will not be hurt in any way by this great shaking and overturning, but those who follow the wicked will be brought to a sudden standstill. The military (represented by the state police) will be involved in this event.
In 2023, Father Will Defend His Children!
On Friday, December 30, 2022, I heard Father say: "Like a good father who protects his child from bullies, I am going to show up in this upcoming year and defend Mine! I will make the bullies give back what they stole; that includes the freedom they stole from My children. Destinies will be restored, along with the finances that were taken. Paychecks and jobs will be restored. A year of restoration and redemption is upon you. The enemy will retreat like a dog with his tail between his legs. Shame β great shame β will be the portion of those who let the enemy use them to heap injustice on this world.
"Retaliation will be their portion as justice falls, unabated, on all their wicked deeds. They will be made to return all they stole! The just Judge of all the earth has spoken! No one can overrule My decisions! Rejoice, for the days ahead will be filled with the sound of My children's sighs of relief. Gloom and doom chased after them, but now they will evict doom and gloom from their midst.
"Hope is being restored! Joy will not evade My children but will fill their lives. A great rejoicing will fill the land!"
On January 2, 2023, Father declared: "More than enough will My glory be to satisfy the hunger of My people. Those who are hungry for justice, truth, love, wisdom and peace will receive exactly what they have longed for, and cried out in faith for. Even the provision they needed will be supplied, as we make the enemy give back what they stole from the innocent. All My children have cried out for shall be supplied in My 'glory explosion'!"
Three Encounters with the Chariot of Fire
"He rode a chariot of thunderclouds amidst thick darkness; His steed was a cherub, soaring on outstretched wings of Spirit-Wind." (Psalm 18:10, TPT)
Recently, I have had three encounters involving a chariot of fire. This chariot looked like it was made of crystal-clear glass. In the first two encounters, Father flew far above us, very high in the sky.
On October 30, 2022, during Sunday's service, I saw Father, in the spirit, driving His chariot over the church. He was circling above us, high in the heavens, and gathering the sweet incense of our worship. His vast approval was evident!
As I saw this sight, I thought of the story of Elijah when the chariot of fire came to pick him up and take him to Heaven β just like in this vision where I saw Father come to pick up our worship and take it to Heaven with Him. (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)
On October 31, 2022, Father explained that what was coming was like the time when Elijah's mantle released to Elisha double what Elijah had: "This will be the time when We release double-portion mantles to Our faithful, humble servants who have allowed themselves to be trained and discipled. These precious ones will have authority over the elements, just as Elisha did when he struck the Jordan River and it parted.
"Death couldn't touch Elijah; he was brought home with no sting of 'death' on him. My chosen ones will not be taken by a spirit of death to Heaven, but I will summon them when their missions are completed. There will be no premature deaths amongst them!
"Just as I did send fire from Heaven on Elijah's sacrifice on Mount Carmel, and on the 120 in the upper room at Pentecost, I will send the fire of My approval to fall on the sacrifices My faithful ones bring to Me. The fire of My Holy Spirit β My great glory β will fall on their gatherings, and on all that they lay on My altar of sacrifice."
Confirming Scripture: "...He is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit" (John 1:33, CSB).
A week later, while in worship once again, I saw Father riding in His chariot high above. This time He was riding over the United States. In both visions, I saw Him throwing fire bombs of His glory to the earth below. [Editor's Note: Donna shared this October revelation on a previous word here.]
After the first vision on the previous week at our Friday night Glory Gathering, the presence of God was so strong, all 120 assembled couldn't move at all; even taking communion was impossible. Though they all had the bread and juice, they couldn't lift their hands to their mouths to take it. The heavy weighty glory was on everyone.
Now, just two days later, as I watched this scene unfold of Father riding high above the USA, I knew that our nation was going to be experiencing that same outpouring of His glory.
On December 31, 2022, I had my third encounter with the chariot of fire. Father came to me in the spirit, riding in His chariot, and invited me to come for a ride with Him. Climbing inside, I saw Jesus sitting beside Father, making room for me to sit between Them. After riding over the earth in the spirit with Father and Jesus, I found myself sitting between Them, high on a mountain overlooking the world.
While riding over the world, Father showed me how beautiful the world is, in spite of all the damage that satan and his horde of demons have done to it. I heard fighting and screams, but I also heard laughter and expressions of heartfelt love. Father wanted me to focus on the love and goodness that still existed on the earth. He sees so much beauty in His creation!
Called to Bring His Glory to the World
He explained why He had taken me for this ride over the world: "I have taken you here today to bare My heart to you. I want My goodness and love to spread all over the world and chase away the darkness of hatred and evil."
To my amazement, He asked, "Will you please go forth and bring Our glory to this world? The world is in great need, and all its needs can be met by My presence. If you go, We will release Our glory on every place you visit and minister by the power of My Spirit. Yes, this is a great thing We ask of you, but you can do all things through Christ who strengthens and equips you. My Spirit will bear witness through you to all. You won't fall short. Miracles will happen as you release My glory and My presence manifests in your midst."
Listening to Him, I knew that Father was calling many of His children, like me, who carry His glory, to bring His wonderful presence wherever He sends them. For some, it might be through actual trips; for others, it might be through social media; for others, through church gatherings. But if we say yes, He will lead and guide us where we will be very effective. His army will go forth and spread His love and His truth!
Confirming Scripture: "But when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, you will receive power to testify about Me with great effect, to the people in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth, about My death and resurrection" (Acts 1:8, TLB). (Photo via Pixabay)
We Will Not Be Stopped
During Sunday morning service, on January 1, 2023, I saw boxes on people's heads in the congregation. The Lord was showing me that we have placed limits on what God can and will do, for and through us, by our mindsets.
We can think, God will only use those who are in the five fold ministry; or, He will use my spouse β not me β to minister through; or, The sins from my past won't allow God to use me; or, I am a nursery worker, a teacher, an intercessor and organizer, but not a healer, prophet or miracle worker.
As the service progressed, people were led to forgive themselves and release God to use them. The boxes were being removed! As this happened, they received freedom that they had never experienced; some weeped in profound gratitude. He will use us to spread His glory His way and in His timing!
Be Like a Mirror in His Hand!
As the service continued on January 1, 2023, I saw, in a vision, someone who was holding a small mirror in their hand, pointing it at the sun to get the light from the sun to reflect on the people below. The light from the sun hit the mirror and bounced down on those whom the mirror was aimed at. Many years ago, this method was used to send secret messages to comrades during battles.
The Lord showed me that as we look on Him, His light will shine on us and reflect on those whom we minister to. The smoother we are (like a mirror), and not encumbered by the cares and things of this world, the more we will reflect His image, His glory, His love and His message. This is why He told us in Scripture that we were to deny ourselves β to die daily to our will β and follow Him. When we are filled with other "stuff," there is no room for His glory to come in and upon us (John 12:24; Matthew 16:24-26).
In this encounter, He also showed me that the person holding the mirror was the Holy Spirit. As we surrender ourselves to the Holy Spirit, He will hold us and help us to keep our gaze fixed on Jesus and Father, keeping us shiny and smooth, and free of all those things that encumbered us. The Holy Spirit will show us where to direct His glory, His presence and His gifts to His children who are in need of instruction, wisdom, healing and help. Our job is to stay in the hand of God by spending quality time in His courts!
Confirming Scriptures: "The Lord is the Spirit who gives them life, and where He is there is freedom. But we Christians have no veil over our faces; we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord. And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like Him" (2 Corinthians 3:17-18, TLB).
"And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His image with ever increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit." (2 Corinthians 3:18, NIV)
