Several days ago, as I woke up early one morning, the Lord spoke to me and said, "This is not what is happening." I got up and began to pray, as I do every morning, and sought the Lord about what exactly this word meant. Then, I started to get a download of revelation from the Lord about this season.
I believe many are discouraged and confused by what they see going on in the natural in this hour. I have encountered many people who are gripped by fear because of different world events that have taken place. I believe when the Lord spoke this to me, He was bringing clarity not just to me but wanted to bring clarity to the whole body of Christ.
Everything that we are seeing right now in the natural realm is not really what is happening according to the Lord. If you are looking in the natural and becoming confused or afraid, know that this is not what is happening from God's perspective. No matter what goes on in the natural realm, God's kingdom is still advancing and reigning above it all!
Who is in power in the earth and those in charge of enforcing and creating laws? The natural state of things in the physical realm does not matter as much as the kingdom of God. The political systems of this world will always be of this world.
However, the kingdom of God will always be supreme and will have the final word! God is still using His people to bring His kingdom to earth, and now is not the time for us to become distracted by what may seem to be happening in the earthly realm. This is a time for the true sons and daughters of God to war in prayer, declare the Word of God and manifest the kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven.
Do not shrink back in fear in this season! Advance forward in faith, knowing that God's plans are still going to come to pass. There is nothing that can stop the kingdom of God from invading the earth as we partner with heaven.
Do not look at any situation or circumstance with your natural eyes. Get into the place of prayer and intercession and see from a heavenly perspective. This is more important now for us as believers than ever before. We must use our God-given authority in this season to see heaven invade the earth.
I still believe we are on the verge of one of the most powerful moves of God anyone has ever seen before. Revival and awakening are coming! God is about to pour out His Spirit, and we will see reformation come to the church.
Don't be discouraged or distracted by what appears to be going on. Instead, keep moving forward with God, and keep leaning in to hear what He is saying. If what you are seeing in the natural looks like chaos and calamity is imminent, know that this is not what is happening!
We are about to see the greatest days of the church!
