2015: A Year of Revealing Hidden Things

As 2014 began to draw to a close, I heard The Lord speaking to my spirit that 2015 is going to be a Year of Revealing, hidden things are going to be made known. I sense that it is a time of things being brought to the light.

Luke 8:17 says, "For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and revealed."

The Lord is bringing His bride into purification and dealing with the inner motives of the heart. We must ask ourselves why we are doing what we do. God wants to bring pure and authentic ministry from His bride to the hurting and the broken

I sense that things will be revealed among the nations. Hidden agendas and plans will be exposed as God's people claim the land and pray. Prayer is the catalyst for exposure.

The Father is peeling back the layers that have created a dull edge and sharpening the prophetic voices. The prophetic ministry is coming to the forefront in this season as there is a growing hunger to hear from God. Much of the church world has restricted the Holy Spirit and limited His flow in their meetings but there will be a breaking forth of genuine prophetic ministry among those who are hungry. This is a time of refining for the prophetic community. The words, revelations and voices must be on target and specific. The sword is being sharpened and accuracy increasing!

Amos 3:7 says, "Surely the Lord God does nothing without revealing His purpose to His servants the prophets."

The prophets will be a friend to the church as they partner with the apostles to release direction, insight and instruction, bringing much needed transformation.

  • God is revealing His heart by sending forth messengers of love to release His love over the wounded. Many people in the body of Christ are carrying old wounds. It is the heart of the Father that brings deep healing. A fresh revelation of the love of God will bring healing to many.

  • God is revealing assignments and empowering Holy Spirit shifts.

There are many divine shifts taking place in the body to align people with great purpose. For those who seek the Father there will be revelation of assignment and destiny. God is illuminating the path and revealing His plans.

  • It is a time of seeking, shifting, and moving in obedience—no fear. Fearless obedience. At the beginning of this New Year, the Father is drawing people aside to seek Him. There is much shifting and releasing coming on the horizon. People will be released from dead and unfruitful works to move into kingdom plans. There are also those who have been in a season of separation and will be brought forth into purpose that they saw a long time ago. It seems as if the word has been delayed but in fact God has been preparing their character and getting them ready to steward what is coming!

  • There are shifts and alignments into greater purpose. Many have been faithful in leading what God has given them but there is an elevation coming. They will have to say goodbye to one season in order to say hello to a greater season. Some of the shifts will not make sense to the natural mind but are kingdom advances and will bring great honor and glory to the kingdom. It will take radical obedience to navigate the shifts! Just as Abraham was asked to let go of the familiar, so are many being asked to journey into the unknown (see Gen. 12).

  • There is a spiritual earthquake shaking and breaking false foundations and shifting people into proper position. As I was praying, I saw a spiritual earthquake coming upon the body of Christ. It is going to shake, chip and break the false foundations and religious structure that is holding back the move of God. At the same time, I saw people being moved under the shaking as they were being divinely positioned for the hour! Just as a chess player would move the pieces in position so the Father will rearrange the board during this time.


     

  • God is calling forth the voices of revival and awakening and enlarging their borders. Those who are carrying the message of revival and awakening are being sent forth in this season. God is enlarging the borders of this message. He wants to awaken His people and there is great favor upon the message of awakening for those who will steward it properly. There is going to be expansion of revival ministry as the Lord opens new doors and provides new platforms.

I see ... God amplifying the voices of awakening and the message going forth with power and authority.

There is an authority arising upon messengers of awakening. The message will go forth with clarity, power and boldness!

I see ... A powerful generation of miracle ministries arising! The Father wants to demonstrate the kingdom. The move of miracles, signs and wonders is coming back and being led by radical ministry gifts who are not afraid to step out in faith and tap into the power!

The emerging move of God is a fullness move with every believer being imparted, equipped and activated. I saw in the Spirit the casting of a mantle from the last generation to this generation. There is an invitation going forth in the Spirit to move in the miraculous.

God wants to demonstrate His power in the earth. There are healing ministries being formed right now in this season. There are many who have abandoned the message of power but there is a great hunger in the nations for the supernatural and those who will heed the call will go forth with the same power that the disciples carried to heal the sick, cast out devils and minister salvation to the lost. There is a fresh move of miracles coming forth for those who will embrace it!
