Outpouring is incomplete and partial until the daughters of God begin to prophesy.
"In the last days it shall be,' says God, that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. Even on My menservants and maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy" (Acts 2:17-18).
All flesh. Not just men. Sons and daughters. Not just sons. Male and female. Not just male. I repeat, we do not have a full, complete manifestation of the outpouring that is our inheritance without the emergence of God's daughter-prophets. So I prophesy that the Holy Spirit is awakening the daughter-prophets in this hour!
Supernatural Influence for the Daughters
I sense the Lord wants to entrust you with supernatural influence among kings and dignitaries. He is going to use you to influence the influencers. I see this as a common denominator among how the Lord is using many of His daughter-prophets in this season. Yes, He is going to make you the influencers as well, but one thing that I sense even more strongly is that you are going to influence the influential, and thus, be the one with more influence than the actual influencer—because your voice, anointed by His voice, is what influenced the one whose influence shapes things and directs courses. You might want to re-read that!
In addition, this influence is going to involve personal visibility for you. High-level visibility. You will not go looking for it, but it will be entrusted to you because You are trustworthy. What keeps you trustworthy? Normality. Everyday life. Chores. Work. Friends. Family. Diapers.
These prophet-daughters are moms and wives—very normal people with normal lives. I see you cleaning spaghetti off your kids, taking care of your households, working jobs—the "everyday" things that are often considered mundane will be the very things the Lord uses to create an infrastructure in your life to steward the high level of influence He desires to entrust you with. Every time you clean a dirty diaper, you may not feel like a prophet to the nations, but the Lord would say, "This level of service to your family is what sustains a humility and down-to-earthness that is essential in this hour. This realness will connect you with the next generation that craves your influence."
I prophesy that your present context will not be a restraint to your prophetic assignment, but a catapult.
Regardless of where you find yourself today, the Lord would say to you, "Do not despise your present assignment, for that is where I am cultivating you. I am preparing you for a level of influence you could not even conceive of, for now is the hour for My daughters to prophesy."
A Womb That Births Revival and Outpouring
As we move closer to the next move of God, the voice of the daughter-prophets will be essential to the sons. The Lord is calling forth His women out of hiding. I see men holding women in greater levels of honor and respect than ever before, as there is something a woman can do that a man cannot—and even if he could do it, truly, I don't believe he would have the nerve or strength to go through with it: Give birth.
For the Lord would say, "I am calling forth My daughter-prophets in this hour to show the sons how to give birth in the spirit."
One thing this generation knows little about is birthing in the spirit—contending, tarrying, travailing and "praying through."
We have a generation operating in the measure of the Spirit's power—healing, prophecy, power evangelism and so on. I celebrate this, but I refuse to put a ceiling on it and call it the ultimate move of God. I'm crying out for the Welsh Revival that transforms a country. I'm asking for an Azusa that births an unstoppable movement. I'm contending for a great awakening that revives the church and reforms the planet. I truly celebrate what we carry with the Holy Spirit and what we are presently seeing released—but I am also contending for more.
I refuse to see where we currently are as a ceiling, and I prophesy that the daughter-prophets will emerge in this hour with a word on birthing revival that breaks the ceiling of complacency in the church. They will release burning words that send men to their knees, contending for the full inheritance of outpouring they have neglected.
I see the daughter-prophets releasing words that birth the spirit of tarrying that ultimately ushers in the revival that never ends, where we fully pick up where Pentecost left off and step into greater realms of Kingdom increase and advancement.
Calling for the Young Women—Teens and 20s
I see the daughter-prophets in their 30s and beyond releasing words over young women in their teens and 20s that call them out of the world and summon them into their destinies and mantles.
The Lord says, "Religion's response to sin will not compel a generation to pursue Me passionately. They need to have a vision—not of what they are being told to leave behind—but a clear view of the assignment they are being called into. I am calling My daughters to turn from sin toward their prophetic destiny to shape nations, release kingdom innovation, operate in signs and wonders, receive creative strategies from heaven, see into the spirit realm, dream dreams, experience visions and visitations and take their place as My mouthpiece."
Prophet-daughters, your words will call forth a generation of Kathryn Kuhlmans, Marie Woodworth-Etters and Aimee Semple-McPhersons. In previous generations, these dynamic women were few and far between. But because of the assignment upon you, you will release a vision of what's possible for every woman filled with the Holy Spirit. You will release a vision to the next generation that will be superior to sin and more compelling than worldly compromise.
Daughter-prophets, you are called to share testimonies of these great women of God who were never meant to be the exception, but the blueprint. You are meant to call forth the next generation of preachers, prophets and miracle-workers, doctors and lawyers, singers and songwriters, artists and dancers, innovators and entrepreneurs. What's the missing link? The next generation needs to hear that it's possible.
The Lord is calling forth previous generations to come into alignment with this emerging generation: "You are not simply coming alongside young women to serve as champions and mentors—your assignment goes even further. When you come into alignment with what I am doing in the present generation, it's not just about My people, it's about My purpose."
Consider the prophetic pioneers of the faith, both the visible and hidden. Both have equal standing in heaven. There are names you know, but there are also those you don't know who are equally known in Heaven as the more famous ones.
All of these women forerunners did two key things: They prayed and prophesied. They prayed for a day when both the sons and daughters could fulfill their assignments in revival together, but their lives, their courage and their boldness prophesied of what would be possible for all daughters of God to step into.
Arise and Emerge, Daughter-Prophets!
Daughter-prophets: arise and emerge! It's time for you to arise and embrace this calling and assignment. This means that you take little everyday steps towards fulfilling this assignment.
Don't despise the unglamourous steps along the journey, for the very generation that's waiting on you is not looking for glamour. They don't want a spiritual show. They want authenticity. They want the pure, the real.
I prophesy: The very thing that will call forth an army of anointed, dynamic Kathryn Kuhlmans will be the mom-wife who shows, through her everyday life, that any woman willing to say an unqualified yes to Jesus can steward a mantle that ushers in Holy Spirit outpouring and reforms nations.
