It's Time to Occupy the Land!
In a profound encounter, the Spirit of God said to me, "It is time to go to the next, new level!" I was instructed to prepare a remnant of believers to position themselves to advance, proceed to the next new level, and possess and occupy the land.
I said, "Lord, I don't like the word 'remnant.' It seems too selective."
He replied, "Don't misunderstand; this invitation of advancement is open to all who will obey. Gender or age make no difference. It is an issue of the heart."
All are called, but few will come!
Awake From Slumber
Don't allow yourself to stagnate and become callous and cold. Now is the time to awake from slumber and rouse to reality (see Rom. 13:11-14)! Arise and shine and push on to new heights (see Isa. 60:1-5). The Spirit of Truth is desiring to release profound, awesome revelation for any who will seek to come higher. If you contend and earnestly seek, this can be a season where the eyes of your heart are flooded with revelatory light (see Eph. 1:17-18). We must dig deeper into the Word of God to discover the ways of God.
"Therefore, leaving the elementary principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of instruction about washings, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. This we will do if God permits" (Heb. 6:1-3).
It is time for the prophetic seers to go into the courts of heaven, behind the veil, and acquire the divine plans and purposes of God. The Spirit of Truth stands ready to release the divine strategies and blueprints of heaven. This is not a time to be vague and dim, but we must be bright and alert, clear and committed to advancing the King in His Kingdom.
Divine Dissatisfaction Is Producing a Holy Hunger!
The Spirit of God is fanning the flame of discontent within the hearts of many. We can't remain satisfied and content with our lack of power and spiritual authority; a cry of desperation must burst forth: "Enough is enough!" Ask yourself this question: "Am I willing to pay the price to seek the Lord for promotion?" This will be a season of swift acceleration and advancement if we put God first.
We are instructed to seek the Lord while He is near (see Isa. 55:6). We are reminded that we only find the Lord when we search with all our heart (see Jer. 29:12-13). If we make seeking Him and His kingdom our top priority, He will take care of everything else (see Matt. 6:33).
There is a wonderful grace offered for us to advance in the times of adversity! The invitation is extended to all saints; however, by a lack of commitment, many will disqualify themselves. This is a time to be desperate for the revealed glory of God. One of the marks of these overcomers will be hunger and complete dissatisfaction with business as usual. This holy hunger will drive us to seek the Lord on a much more increased level.
Can't You Talk Louder, God?
Jesus states in Matthew 5:6, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled." The AMPC version reveals, "... those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God) ... shall be completely satisfied!"
It's time to remove all lids of limitations off and believe God for big things, being assured that He is able to do much more than we could ask or even think (see Eph. 3:20-21).
Deep Calls to Deep
One way not to miss God's new thing is to not think that it is already here. Yes, we are so thankful and grateful for all that God is doing, yet there is much more. The promise is that the whole earth shall be filled with the knowledge of God's glory (see Num. 14:21 and Hab. 2:14).
The Spirit of God is stirring our souls and awakening our hearts to seek deeper depths and higher heights. This is the time for you to go all out for Christ and the kingdom of God. Don't hold back; surrender yourself entirely to the control and guidance of the Holy Spirit. This statement is so true: "Deep calls to deep" (Ps. 42:7, MEV).
"See, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not be aware of it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert" (Isa. 43:19).
This is a promise of transformational power being released, giving an unction to function—a roadway in the rugged wilderness and flowing, refreshing rivers in the dry, barren desert. Nothing is too hard for our God (see Job 42:2 and Gen. 18:14)!
"You have heard; see all this. And will you not declare it? I have shown you new things from this time, even hidden things, and you did not know them. They are created now and not from the beginning; even before the day when you did not hear them, lest you should say, 'Yes, I knew them'" (Isa. 48:6-7).
These new things are called into reality by the prophetic proclamation. They are decreed, and God brings them into reality.
We do not have time to delay. The Spirit of Truth is preparing a remnant to proceed to the next new level; we must advance and make progress (see Eph. 5:14-15). In this next, new level, we will begin to grasp higher, clearer insight into the majesty of the Master. Prepare to behold the living Lord Jesus in a much clearer way.
It is time to taste the hidden manna reserved for overcomers revealed in Revelation 2:17: "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written, which no one knows except he who receives it."
I pray that 2019 will be filled with the overflowing favor of God upon you and your loved ones. Embrace the promises of God's new day. Expect to see God's mighty power!
