Beloved, we are on the cusp of a pivotal season in the Kingdom. It will be a great season of victory for the children of God if we would seek Him, moving in alignment with Him and Throne Room wisdom.

THE CLASH OF THE KINGDOMS

“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.” Habakkuk 2:14

Light will get brighter and darkness will get darker. Evil will keep increasing in the world, BUT there will also be an increase in the influence and power of Light. The contrast of light vs. darkness will become so stark that there will no longer be any gray areas. Every person will have to make a choice. No longer will anyone be able to say, “I did not know…”. Such will be the intensity of the contrast between kingdoms.

We are entering into a moment in God’s timeline when He is going to show the world His glory, and He is choosing to do it through us His children. It is up to us to represent the Kingdom of light in a way that points the world to His Kingdom.

If we would be willing to humble ourselves, lay down our own agendas/ambitions, and work in partnership with God, these are the tools we will be given in the clash of the kingdoms:

  • Influence: He is going to enlarge our territory. New ground. Victory over the length and breadth of the land. And not just enlargement but increased depth in our influence. He will release the authority and anointing to impact our spheres of influence in deep and lasting ways.
  • Wisdom and Revelation: We will move in divine understanding. If we would lay aside our human wisdom and plans to take on His, we will begin to move in a higher realm. We will be able to take our places as “seated with Him in heavenly places” (Ephesians 2:6)  and become heavenly administrators of His will on earth.
  • Signs and Wonders: There will be an increase in the miracles and shekinah presence of the Lord. These signs and wonders will be signs that make the world wonder, and in wondering they will find God as their answer.

A SEASON OF TAKING NEW TERRITORY

“Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to you… I will give you every place where you set your foot. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you… Be strong and very courageous.” Joshua 1: 1-7

We have a huge commissioning on our hands to bring the culture of Heaven into all spheres of this earth. There is a great sending the Lord is doing across the earth in all 7 mountains of society. He wants to give us every place we set foot on… and that means we’ve got to get moving!

Because of our new assignments, the enemy has tried to discourage many of God’s people in their hope on this earthly territory. He has sought to hold many back from fulfilling their God-given mission through discouragement, intimidation, and comparison. This has caused many to turn their eyes away from the Lord and onto themselves. The key to overcoming the enemy’s assignments is this: Hope. Look to the Lord and take courage.

Jesus says that He has taken back jurisdiction plus given us authority over this earth. It’s no longer satan’s territory. When the enemy presses in, look to Jesus. Keep your eyes on Him. Exalt Him, not your circumstances. When the enemy comes in like a flood, the battle belongs to the Lord. We will raise up a standard: Jesus.

Your new authority and commissioning is coming. Stand firm, walk tall, and step out in faith that you have a good Father watching over you.

RECLAIMING PREVIOUS TERRITORY THAT HAVE BEEN STOLEN

Last year (2016) was one of great opposition in the spirit realm against His faithful servants, but God is saying, “Don’t give up! Don’t give in! Don’t let go of your inheritance. Fight for it! Victory is yours.” It is time for us to storm the enemy gates and take back what is rightfully ours. This includes our spiritual inheritance, finances, relationships, health, joy, etc. We can overcome by standing firm upon His promises and under the shadow of the Almighty.

Don’t be weary in holding on to faith and hope; don’t give up just before you receive your provision from Heaven!

It is time to get aggressive in both the fruit and gifts of the Spirit. The earth is longing for the sons of God to rise up and take their place. We are called to influence and dominion that  was abdicated by Adam and restored to us through Jesus.

Hallelujah, because God is mighty in us, we can be mighty in Him! Arise, Christian soldier, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord shines upon you.

    I have to say that the abstract telling of God’s provision makes it difficult for me to see my role in his Kingdom. I do have hope that he will use us for his plan, and that is what I cling to. Really enjoyed reading this perspective.ReplyCancel

    Dear Samantha,

    I agree with you that 2017 is a year of the clash of the kingdoms and a battle between darkness and light. However, darkness can never overcome the light because it is simply the absence of light. For this reason. since the battle belongs to the Lord who is the Light from Light Eternal and the Light of the World, there is no room for darkness too have its victory. May the love of God be with you and upon you always, for He loves you very deeply.

    Your Sister-in-Christ,

We’ve been in deep abide mode since November. We felt the call to take this season to press in deeper and wait on the Lord for His blueprints for the ministry in 2017.  We are so excited to let you know that we’ve received those blueprints and I can’t wait to share them with you when we launch all the new things in 2017!  Meanwhile, here are some key changes I’m allowed to share with you.

~

A new ministry name. We are very clearly no longer just a women’s ministry, and haven’t been functioning as one in more than a year. With all the various ministry arms serving men & women equally, we sense a shift in where God is calling us. The new ministry name is a prophetic change, and all will be unveiled come January 1st!

No longer just a women’s ministry. Alex and I have been seeing the Lord lead our communities (Prophetic Equipping, CreateCollective, etc) in a very specific way, and sense that it’s time to streamline all the communities. As we began to seek the Lord on how to align our structure to where He was moving in all this, we got the following: Growing in the 5-fold, going into the 7 mountains, with prophetic insight and apostolic strategies.

A prophetic-apostolic hub.  This new structure includes an Assembly (traditionally called a church, biblically named an ekklesia), an Academy (with 5-fold equipping tracks), and many other arms. Basically, it’s what we’ve been doing so far under Godly Womanhood Ministries… just a few times bigger. The mandate of this hub will be to grow believers in the 5-fold gifts and to release them into the 7 mountains. Why a hub? Because it is a place of sending and receiving and equipping.

We’ve received many confirmations from established prophets, and are still seeking counsel from those wiser + more experienced than we are. Below is a prophecy that very accurately describes where we’re headed.

We are in the process of building the physical + online structures for this hub.

You will get to see the full, detailed, ministry blueprint when we launch January 1st, 2017.

And don’t worry, we won’t let you miss out on the action! Announcements will be made here, on our Instagram and Facebook, and pretty much everywhere we can share it from! We definitely want to keep growing with you guys, and it doesn’t stop here.

What about my writings + prophetic words? This space began as a blog, and no matter how far the ministry grows, writing will always be one of my top callings. I am so excited to let you know that with the building of the new online hub, this website will revert back to my personal writing space! Come January 1st, this will become a place where I write articles from my heart + prophetic revelations from God.

What about the Godly Womanhood Shop? One of the changes will be the move to a prophetic resource shop that serves both men and women… and that means the closing of the Godly Womanhood Shop. It’s been a super fun couple of years; we’re so grateful for all that God has done, and we’re so excited for the new + bigger things ahead! To celebrate, we are putting up soon-to-be-gone items at more than 50% off on the e-store! These are products that will be discontinued in the new ministry platform — a small selection of products that are NOT listed in the sale section will continue to be sold in the new store. We wanted to give you an opportunity to get them before they’re gone forever.

GET SHOPPING!

Big changes are happening over here, and I’m awed + excited + a little overwhelmed in a good way sometimes. I’d really appreciate all your prayers for Alex, myself, the team, and the ministry.

Also, if you have any questions or things you’d like to clarify, please feel free to leave them in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer them!

Right about this time last year, the Lion of Judah walked into my room and asked me to come away with Him for awhile. If you’ve read the story, you know that sadly, I said “No” (you can read the story here).

As it turns out, He did have something important to tell me. Because of my disobedience, it took me longer to get what I could’ve gotten in a day if I had just listened. Lesson learned. I thank God for His ever-willing heart to forgive when we repent!

Which is why I’m  choosing immediate obedience this time.

All this to say that: the Lord has instructed me to hit the pause button on ministry activities for November + December, and spend the last two months of the year waiting on Him for plans + strategies for 2017.

So I’m obeying. I sense some exciting growth + changes happening in 2017, and I can’t wait to share them with you at the end of these 2 months! I’ll still write here when there’s something major the Lord asks me to share, but otherwise more frequent updates will be on my Instagram.

I (and the ministry) are going to get quiet and still before the Lord, and I wanted to just quickly let you know about some of the things that are going to be happening around here in this time of waiting & abiding.

  • GODLY WOMANHOOD SHOP. We’re slowing down our store activity, but understand that many of you still want to shop for Christmas gifts, so here’s what we’re going to do! Purchases in: October will ship out on November 1st, November will ship out on December 1st (in time for Christmas!), December will ship out on January 1st. Now you know we only ever have major discounts once a year, so this is huge — get 20% off all items with code ABIDEINHIM at checkout all the way till the end of this year! We hope that this blesses you + helps you to bless someone else, and ask for your understanding in our shipping schedule.
  • CREATECOLLECTIVE. This Saturday will be our last worship night of the year. You’re welcome to join us (info here)! We are also organizing a session with Rick Joyner’s MorningStar Ministries’ prophetic arts team, so do join our community platform if our vision is something you resonate with.
  • PROPHETIC EQUIPPING. Last class happens this month. Stay tuned for updates on plans for next year!
  • PRAYER MINISTRY. We will not be taking any new Prophetic Coaching/Counseling cases for the rest of this year. You are still welcome to submit your prayer requests as our prayer team will still be praying over them. Do note, however, that our monthly prayer meetings will also be put on hold for November and December.

We’ve also have something super exciting up our sleeves for you! The only ministry event we’ll be doing in November is a two-day session with the prophetic team from Rick Joyner’s MorningStar Ministries

We’re so excited to empower you to release His peace in your spheres of influence, and establish His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven! Register here.

I’m excited for this season of abiding before the Lord, and I’m also excited for what He has in store in the next season! In all seasons, God is good and I’m learning to embrace the process. I’m praying that, as you wind down form this year, each one of you will also get your own unique blueprint from the Lord for his plans for you. 2017 is going to be a year of even greater acceleration + spiritual significance than 2016, and I’m looking forward to us running forward together!

The following is a very powerful prophetic dream, and one which is key, for our generation. This dream was given by God to one of His prophets in the 7 mountains (who wishes to remain hidden), and it was an incredible honor to get to transcribe it to share with you. I pray that it will move you as much as it did me.

~

The Prophet’s Dream

Two years ago, I had a dream. In this dream, I was caught up in the spirit and the Lord brought me into a meeting of the high council of demons. The meeting was in session.

In this gathering, the demons looked very serious and amidst the babble, these snippets could be heard:

We’ve got a situation on our hands.

Houston, houston, we have a problem.

As the session went on, it became clear that these senior demons were getting all flustered by two things.

1. A spirit of honor: an unprecedented unity within the body of Christ

A generation was arising that walked in such honor and unity with one another, and this was tearing down strongholds that the enemy had built within the nations for years. Unity in the body of Christ was destroying the works of the enemy, and they were in a state of alarm.

I saw that as God’s children began to walk in honor and unity, we started to destroy the work of the enemy – some of these strongholds within nations had taken generations to build –  in such an exponential and swift way.

God’s people were coming in unity and they were honoring one another, and this was severely thwarting the enemies’ schemes.

2. A spirit of servanthood: sons serving one another

God’s children were uniting together as sons, and yet they were coming with towels and a bucket and serving one another by washing each others’ feet. These sons and daughters were coming together in a spirit of servanthood, and this was destroying the strongholds that had been built through generations.

In the face of such defeat, the enemy came together asking: what is going to be our strategy? how are we going to stop this phenomenon?

The enemy’s strategy

One of the demons stepped forward and “This is how we’re going to deal with them. Our age-old strategy of sowing disunity, to divide and conquer, does not really work now that they’re honoring one another. In the past, this was very effective and when they were disunited it was very easy for us to take control, but now they are coming in the spirit of honor and the spirit of servanthood. So what are we going to do?

This is my suggestion: We are going to sow thoughts among them in a very subtle way. We are going to make them ask, ‘Who is the greatest among us? Who is the greatest?’  And eventually if they would entertain this thought, they are going to compete with one another and this is where they will disintegrate.”

And then I awoke from my dream.

As I meditated on the key elements of the prophet’s dream above, here are some thoughts burning in my heart:

• Will we walk in covenant relationships of honor that say, “you’re free to be you around me, and I’m free to be me around you, and I’m going to do all I can to help you be the you that God made you to be”?

• Will we throw off the fear of failure — others’ and our own? When we fear failure, we subconsciously tell the people around us to be afraid of freedom. But when we have each other’s backs even in failure, we encourage others to walk in faith + obedience even in their limitations.

• Will we commit to have each other’s backs? Not just when the other person is doing well, but even when they fall. This doesn’t mean that we don’t hold them accountable — but that we practice accountability with honor & love.

• Will we serve? Will we rejoice in our brother/sisters’ success, knowing that their victory is our victory, and their light doesn’t take away any of ours?

• Will we see ourselves as ONE body, aligned to ONE head? No one exalting themselves against another, nor competing for who gets higher, but all existing solely to support Jesus the head?

Change is coming. The year 5777 is the year of the clash of the kingdoms. Whose kingdom will we build — our own? the devil’s? or God’s?

It’s time to choose. It’s time to take a stand. Let His Kingdom come, His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen

    Amen. God is calling his church to a deeper level of maturity and unity. Humility is critical. Humility comes with honoring each other, serving others, and staying deeply rooted in the Bible and Jesus.

    The earth is groaning. Revival is about to be birthed. God is preparing his church for a great harvest. Let’s continue to declare his peace, unity, and courage into the church of God.

    Come Holy Spirit. Come.ReplyCancel
