September – November 2017 / Sign in the sky
Revelation 12:1-2 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.
This heavenly fulfillment manifested on September 23rd and was seen from Jerusalem on the Feast of Trumpets. This sign was not only symbolic to the birth of Christ but also the birthing of a new season. In this season the expectation of the return of the Lord is high and prophetically called the Messiah season.
Every season, whether long or short, has a beginning and an end. In each season God releases prophetic vision, revelation and strategy. The training of one season will lead you into the next season that God has prepared for you. You must reach a level of completion of one season to be granted access into the next. By completing God’s required will in one season a promise is released and you are advanced into the new. If we allow ourselves to reattach to things God cleansed us from, it will contaminate the new season and we will return and repeat the previous season until a new level of completion is reached.
Hebrews 12:25-29 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. For our God is a consuming fire.
As the shaking continues to expose any evil agendas in personal lives and political arenas, it is because God is preparing for an outpouring of His Spirit. In the hope of rescuing many souls from His wrath to come, God’s shaking offers opportunity for cleansing, through His blood and repentance. September 23rd set off a long term season, until the rapture of the church, containing sub seasons of training and release of promises. The evil resistance is extreme in creating deception and confusion even to those that know the truth. This has kept many away from a level of God’s presence where reality of truth is released. Too often, believers have turned back to the programming of secularism, pushed by a Luciferian agenda, and are missing the message of the God’s Spirit. God is calling for a deeper level of relationship, commitment and obedience, looking into the matters of exposing the kingdom of darkness and promoting the kingdom of God. His greatest desire is that His children see what He sees.
As soldiers of reality, the fight for the presence of the Lord is essential making the exchange of your presence for His. Lack of the presence of the Lord will express the old man of sin and open the door to religious and familiar spirits, leading to the fruits of puffed up knowledge, selfishness and pride. This causes individuals to live out of emotion instead of truth, making decisions based on feelings and offense.
Psalm 16:11 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Demonic forces know the level of God’s presence on you. Without His presence there is no victory. Only through worship and drinking of His Spirit can you gain the presence of the Lord. The Father seeks those that worship Him in truth and Spirit. He looks for His presence on His children to express Himself. Remember, demons can’t defeat His presence and by His anointing on you the gates of hell cannot prevail. Welcome to the new season!
