As you may have heard, Vision Church at Christian International suffered from terrible flooding and damage from the recent storms. As a result, we have pulled up our carpet and are dealing with the underlying issues. But we are excited because we know this is a sign of a new season of prophetic fulfillment for us and so many in the body of Christ.
On April 11, 2014, just three weeks earlier, Cindy Jacobs was prophesying at our Watchman Intercessor conference when she began to declare that the spirit of a delay was broken and that every curse upon the land that came from the spirit of robbery and piracy was destroyed. Her next words were that God had declared a time of renovation for us and that He would more than supply our needs. Then she pointed at the carpet and said, "This carpet is coming up!" She said it several times! Three weeks later, the carpet was pulled up. This is prophetic fulfillment!
We don't always understand God's promises or processes. But He is true to His words. When the prophetic word came, we all rejoiced ... but didn't realize the upheaval the process of fulfillment would mean.
My mother-in-law, Evelyn Hamon, uses an illustration about progress. She says that when God declares a season of progress, we must prepare ourselves for His process. It is exciting to go from a two-lane road to a four-lane road, but usually at some point in the process of progress it becomes a one-lane road with significant delays and a mess! But this is progress. This is fulfillment.
So we must embrace the new season of fulfillment—even though change may mean at times that things get messy before the finished product emerges, even though our faith may get stretched as we pass through the narrow place of a single lane for a time, even though it isn't comfortable to our flesh.
Things get messy before the finished product emerges. How else can we see God arise as the Lord of the breakthrough unless we have some situations that need breaking through?
Embrace your new season, and expect a time of God fulfilling what He has promised. Delay is broken, every curse is destroyed, and the new thing is at hand!
Tom and Jane Hamon are the senior pastors of Vision Church at Christian International in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. Their ministry together is an example to the body of Christ of a husband and wife team working in tandem and unity to accomplish God's purposes. Their ministry is characterized by a rich deposit of God's wisdom to provide apostolic covering for the church, prophetic teaching and ministry, and demonstration of Kingdom anointing and power. They travel as an apostolic/prophetic team to the nations, imparting both the spirit of wisdom and revelation to establish the church and break open territories through spiritual warfare for the kingdom of God to be experienced in a powerful and practical way.
Jane Hamon has been featured on Christian television on TBN and through co-hosting with Gordon Robertson on the 700 Club. She has also written several books, including her very practical work on Dreams and Visions, her call to marketplace ministers called The Cyrus Decree, and her proclamation over women in the church to arise and be The Deborah Company.
