We are moving into the Jewish New Year — Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets. This will be a year that the Lord is bringing us into a new rest in Him, even as the shaking is all around us.
There is an acceleration taking place in the spiritual and natural dimensions — an acceleration that builds upon the acceleration that began in July — and God is bringing us to the next level. A higher level for those who would run & keep in step with His Spirit.
As we step into the new year, the following is a word to the prophets and the prophetic people of God.
Beloved, set your face as flint; I will make your forehead like the hardest stone, harder than flint.
My prophets, seers, and intercessors, it is time to set your faces as flint. It is time to set your faces to the battle.
My order to march has gone out, and I have increased your prophetic insight, foresight, accuracy, and authority. I am giving you much power in prayer. The enemy has also released the prophets’ main opponent, Jezebel, in violent assignments against My chosen prophets, BUT I will be their personal coach in defeating these attacks. I am giving you weapons for warfare!
1. Speak Faithfully
Son of man, I am sending you to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against me.. The people to whom I am sending you are obstinate and stubborn. Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says.’ And whether they listen or fail to listen – for they are a rebellious people – they will know that a prophet has been among them. And you, son of man, do not be afraid of them or their words.. Do not be afraid of what they say or be terrified by them, though they are a rebellious people. You must speak my words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious.
Ezekiel 2: 3-7
You must speak My word when I tell you to. Even if the people to whom I send you reject My message and messenger, you must be faithful to speak.
Beloved I have made you a watchman for My people, so hear the word I speak and give it to them from Me. When I say to you, ‘Speak,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, they will be punished for their sins and I will hold you accountable for their blood. Fear God, not man — this is so important in My last days prophets, especially as wickedness increases on the earth.
The enemy Jezebel seeks to control My prophets through manipulation and intimidation. I am calling My people to rise up in the fear of the Lord. As the fear of the Lord increases, the fear of man decreases. As this happens, every criticism commissioned by hell to discredit, malign, discourage, and intimidate My prophets will not be able to hurt them, for their identity will be so rooted in My love.
Remember, this great gift I have given to you is for MY ministry, not yours. You don’t have to fight so hard against those who reject My word through you. It is not your job to convince them; it is My Spirit’s job to convict them. It is My battle, not yours, so just keep your eyes on Me and speak faithfully, and My peace, joy, and love will protect you.
2. Obey Personally
But you, son of man, listen to what I say to you. Do not rebel like that rebellious people; open your mouth and eat what I give you.
Even if others reject My message through you, you must obey it. Not only must you speak it, but you must also live it. Obedience is key in this season, and immediate obedience at that. You don’t need to know everything or have it all figured out; just know that you are held by Me and I am leading you. Striving will snag you. Let go, come deeper still into trust.
There is the temptation of the soul to “go ahead” when I am saying “wait”. Surrender is key. Stepping into things apart from My covering will leave you open to the enemy’s arrows.
The messenger must become the message in order for him/her to have highest authority of that word. The prophet’s life must first become the prophecy.
Obey. Live the word I’ve given you to deliver. Let that word become you just as Jesus was the Word. And that one spoken word of God will bear much power to transform this generation.
3. Forgive Immediately
The Spirit then lifted me up and took me away, and I went in bitterness and in the anger of my spirit, with the strong hand of the Lord on me. I came to the exiles who lived at Tel Aviv near the Kebar River. And there, where they were living, I sat among them for seven days – deeply distressed.
Ezekiel 3:14 & 15
My beloved one, forgive the ones who reject you because of Me. Forgive them when they malign you, spread lies about you, reject you, and turn others against you.
Pray for them, love them, irregardless of how they behave. In the end, it’s between you and Me anyway. Don’t allow a bitter root judgment to rise up and make you just like the ones you’re bitter against, because that’s what bitterness does. You become what you behold, so release your tormentors into forgiveness and behold My Son instead.
In these last days, My prophets will give My church many vital & strategic instructions from My throne room. The enemy wants to hinder millions in this generation from hearing My decrees, timings, and strategies.. which is why there is such an assault on My prophets and seers in this season. The enemy will try to hold you back by using people – especially My own children, those who are unenlightened, deceived – to malign, discredit, slander, manipulate, and intimidate you.
Under this assault, you must SET YOUR FACE AS FLINT. Ignore them, let Me be your defender. Forgive them. Refuse to march to the voice of man, you must march only to My voice.
Resolve not to let others’ opinion of you & your ministry cause you to become wounded and defensive. Forgive your enemies, even those within My house (though I know those hurt the most) and trust Me to defend and vindicate you.
4. Above all, Rest and Peace will be your Sword & Shield
The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.
Romans 16: 20
My peace will be your weapon AND defense, in the heat of the battle. The enemy has unleashed lying, slandering, divisive battalions to tear down My servants’ credibility so that everything I’ve given them to SEE and HEAR will be discredited and maligned. Remain in My Father’s protection in the secret place.
Refuse to rise up and defend yourself or your ministry; strife will make a target of the assignments of the spirit of Jezebel. I know that it is sometimes greatly testing for you when you and your ministries are lied about and criticized, but if you keep your eyes on Me, Jezebel will have no power over you.
Give every wound and persecution truly to Me, and you will not be overwhelmed by discouragement.
View all your work as My ministry not yours, and you will not have to fight so hard in your heart against the lies spoken against you.
Keep your eyes on Me, come to Me to heal your hurts instead of seeking self-comfort, and you will not be taken hold of by besetting sins.
Care only for My opinion, find your greatest joy in My presence, and you will truly know peace.
Even when your reputation and calling is violently attacked, choose to continually abide in the shadow of My presence. Jezebel’s greatest enemies are My servants who, through death to their own reputation & ambition, have learned to ignore her continual calls to war, hostility, intimidation, and have kept their eyes on Me. This renders her completely helpless.
The God of PEACE will crush the spirit of Jezebel under your feet!
My beloved one, pray for those who persecute you. Bless those who spitefully use you. And My Spirit will take you further still…
These last couple of months, we have been going from one level to the next in the spirit. An acceleration like no other I’ve experienced before.
It all began in July.
The Isaiah 61 Angel:
I was worshiping God one day when a huge angel appeared at my right side.
He was dressed in white with a gold sash from shoulder to hip, and he carried a huge sword. I thought he was a warrior angel because of his huge size + the sword at his side, but I’d never seen warrior angels wearing gold sashes before. His demeanor was more like a ministering angel.
As I continued worshiping God, he came forward and poured a huge bowl of anointing oil over me. It flowed like it would never end, it was like a strong heady waterfall filling all my senses.
I asked the Lord, “Why did you send an angel with both a sword and oil? What does this mean?”
He was about to release His JOY to us in a way that would shatter my carefully labelled “God boxes” and comfort zone. He was going to release the:
“Oil of gladness..”
“Crown of beauty..”
“Garment of praise..”
The Lord told me to go to Isaiah 61, where He showed me that the promise of this scripture isn’t just one of comfort. It’s also a militant one:
“VENGEANCE of the Lord..”
He told me that He was sending us the ministering angel for BOTH healing hearts + fighting spiritual battles, and told me to proclaim that over each person under the covering of the ministry.
The following is an account of the things that began happening after that declaration.
One of the girls in our community, Yin, began to feel drunk on her way to our Prophetic Equipping class. Holy Spirit immediately spoke to my spirit that He was going to begin to release JOY as He’d promised, and He was going to do it through her.
Holy Spirit had chosen this dear sister, and without knowing what hit her she became drunk in the spirit. At the end of class, we gathered in a circle to play spiritual Catchball (photos of that here), a game that was invented on-the-spot as Holy Spirit inspired.
What we do in spiritual Catchball is this: We wait on the Lord for what He wants to be released (for example, we got things like finances, joy, a hunger for the word, being able to see angels, etc., and released those one at a time). Those who feel they’re meant to “catch” that particular “ball” go in the middle, and the ones on the outside who have that particular gift/unction will pray and release it over those in the middle. An individual can catch as many balls as he/she wants.
One of the “balls” was Joy. Yin began to release it by faith, although she wasn’t quite sure what was happening within her – because the things that happen in the spiritual realm are caught first in our spirit man, oftentimes before our logical mind can understand it – and all of a sudden we began to break out in holy laughter.
Alex fell so hard under the power of God that his head made a loud cracking sound when it hit the floor, but he said it didn’t hurt and there were no bumps on his head afterwards. His body was literally almost levitating off the ground as he lay there and God’s power coursed through him.
That was just the start…
Seeing the Isaiah 61 Angel:
Another “ball” was for those who wanted to see in the heavenly realm and see angels. As we prayed, one of the guys, Paul, saw “…an angel with big wings, wearing white robe with a golden belt, with hair and face that looks like Michelangelo’s David standing in the midst of the clouds near a hole (portal) that overlooked earth. And then I saw this angel tipping a huge vase and pouring out something.. I didn’t know what was poured out though.. But I remember we were praying for the angels to pour out gladness/joy.. So! I translated that into liquid gold.. Oh yes.. My paper was a little bit too small, so the wings are quite a bit smaller here.”
Drawing of the angel by Paul Leslie Lu
This was the same angel that had appeared to me at the beginning to signal the dawning of this new season!
At our CreateCollective worship night, people began to break out in holy laughter again and some started to see this same angel.
A dear sister, Audrey, shared that she saw the angel pouring out the oil of gladness and it was like there was an open heaven (similar to the portal that Leslie saw) and a waterfall of that oil pouring down on all who would come and stand beneath it. So we responded and stood under that waterfall, and it was wonderful time in His presence.
A few of us ended up praying at 5am in the morning (must be a God thing!) and sensed that God wanted to release joy to break-through suicide and depression at that night’s CreateCollective Worship Night.
He came through, and so many of us left feeling so ministered to by His presence. One of the attendees described it like this, “I was so blessed last night. I felt like the one sheep that the shepherd left the 99 for when. Papa God is so so good“
So much more is to come in the coming months.
Fighting Spiritual Battles:
The angel that the Lord sent wasn’t just for healing hearts, but, the Lord told me, was for a militant purpose too! The sword that the angel carried was a grace for us to tear down the works of the enemy, defend against his attacks, and crush him in Jesus’ name.
I had a series of dreams, through which I was literally doing spiritual warfare whilst asleep. As I fought the various attacks of the enemy, the Lord would coach me from my right side. He gave me different scriptures to defeat different demons, and different strategies against the different principalities — yes, we need to be led by His Spirit in spiritual warfare!
For example, in one of the dreams, I was calling down fire and using the sword to fight the enemy, but that only seemed to make him stronger. Then my Coach, the Lord, told me that for this one I had to fight with water. Water meant repentance (Matthew 3:11) and His forgiveness that would wash us clean if we repented (1 John 1:9). I did that, and it worked! Not only did He wash me clean of my sins, but He washed me clean from the demonic disturbance. The water just flushed that enemy away!
In another dream I was up against the Jezebelic spirit. She’s a sly manipulator and very wily, and I couldn’t catch her until my Coach told me to use Romans 16:20, “The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.” I used that scripture and caught her, wrestled her to the ground, and literally crushed her till she was just a pile of bones. The rhema word of God is a powerful weapon in spiritual warfare!
The Isaiah 61 angel that appeared in my living room in July was heralding a new season, and the Lord is literally giving us weapons for warfare! It’s not enough to have the tools for healing; we must also have weapons to set the prisoners free!
On the last night of August, I had a dream in which a wise old man (Holy Spirit) gave me some major prophecies for the world in this season. It’s not a coincidence that it happened right before we stepped into September. This is going to be a month of new beginnings, greater acceleration, and even MORE of His supernatural activity.
Breakthrough upon breakthrough has been coming and I’m contending for more! And I feel led to ask: Who’s with me?
There’s an invitation to come align with us, run with us, and press in together as a community.
All the stories shared here have happened in our various communities (which really is just one big community!), and you are welcome to join us as we press in for SO MUCH MORE as a community:
Here is the full calendar of listed activities. If you feel called to run with us, we do encourage you to make our gatherings a priority — with the acceleration that’s been taking place, some people miss a month or two and then come back to find that the others have built deep bonds because of what we’ve gone through together, and they also struggle to catch up with the growth in the spirit that took place while they were away. This is a season to know where you’re called to align to, and get in on that momentum!
Do note that we’re based in Singapore. Our community includes men as well — although the name of this ministry is still Godly Womanhood for now, it is headed by both Alex & Samantha, and includes other men.
Today I felt a sudden charge in my spirit — this is the hour, this is the day. Uplifting. It’s coming. He is blowing His JOY into areas of oppression. Open heavens are accessible to us. Now is the window of opportunity.
Many doors of supernatural favor and golden moments are opening for God’s people, the ones who have been prepared & aligned in the past few months. The uphill struggle of the first 6 months of this year will now propel you into mountain top encounters.
It’s time! It’s time! It’s time for the children of God to be flooded, yes completely overwhelmed, with His goodness and His power.
August is the month of His reordering, restoration, perfection.
January – May: We’ve contended and faced the heat of enemy fire, and experienced His grace that sustains.
June: His Spirit told us to begin preparation for His acceleration.
July: The month of breakthrough and moving to the next level in the spirit.
August: He’s been bringing His divine order into all things so we can take off.
Times of refreshing have come! Now is the time to reap the prayers, tears, and sacrifices you’ve sown, 30, 60, and a 100 times over. He is breaking loose the storehouses of heaven for you.
Joy, joy, joy! So much joy is coming.
As we worship Him, turn our eyes toward Him and repent of our sin, He is releasing a wave of His spirit upon all flesh – men and women, old and young, regardless of denomination or geography. His Spirit won’t be contained!
This is the hour. He is issuing a royal invitation. It’s all there for us to tap into if we want it.
Greater things are yet to come, greater things are still to be done!
Five years ago, the Lord showed me thorugh a series of visions + scripture a picture of the end time army His Spirit is raising up.
I’ve shared this revelation in tiny snippets to different people as the Lord led, but kept mostly silent because He said, “Don’t share this yet.” This season, I sense the release to share a little bit more of its entirety with you.
I pray that Holy Spirit would take His word and plant them as living seeds in your spirit. May they find good soil, take root, grow deep, and bear much fruit, in Jesus’ name.
THE LION OF ASIA
I saw a lion asleep, and a voice said, “This is Singapore, the Lion of Asia.” Then the Lion of Judah, Jesus, came in. He walked past the sleeping lion, and with a flick of His tail gently touched his head. At His touch, the Lion of Asia began to wake up. Then a loud voice declared, “Arise, arise, shake off your slumber and release your sound.” The Lion of Asia obeyed that decree and began to roar. That sound reverberated through Asia and to the rest of the world.
Revival has come, and is coming in greater measure still, to Singapore. That awakening will cause a ripple effect across the nations. It used to be that the West sent their missionaries to the East to spread the message of the gospel, but in these days the Lord is raising up an army in the East to go back and bring His fires of Revival to the West. We are seeing that happening around us and within the ministry! People around the world are coming to our little prayer team in this little nation for prayer, counseling, coaching, and prophetic direction from the Lord. It is time for us to arise, shake off our slumber, and release our sound!
THE LION ARMY
He’s raising up an army to follow after the Lion of Judah. Their only fear is the fear of the Lord, and that is why they are characterized by:
1. Unity. They march and don’t break rank. No strife, no competition. Each knows his place and marches in line with his brothers + Jesus the commander.
2. Humility. It’ll be a nameless, faceless army. No super stars. Only Jesus gets the glory.
3. Purity. Their tools in the harvest fields are banners – white banners, the standard of purity. And as they lift it up, He draws all men to Jesus Christ.
THE LION’S ROAR
When we were praying over the generation, I saw the word “INFLUENCE”. This generation will have influence that is both wide and deep. The Lion of Asia’s roar will ring through the nations.
For us to carry the huge influence God wants to give us, the Children of God really need to abide in Him. Since 2011, there has been a deep cry in my heart to see the Glory of God in my life, in the lives of others, in my generation, and in this world. I have been echoing the plea of Moses (Exodus 33:12-23) and crying out for His glory to come amongst us and go forth to the nations, until one day I felt the Spirit of God stop me in the middle of prayer, saying, “You ask for My Glory to come; you ask for revival and the outpouring of my Holy Spirit. But do not ask for this so flippantly as you might ask for a toy – the Glory of God is not something that comes lightly.”
The Glory of God is not a fluffy, flighty thing – when it comes, it also brings with it judgment of all that is unholy, for our God is a consuming fire. The Lion’s roar will consume us, it might hurt in the parts of us that have yet to be submitted to His lordship, but it will also set a blaze in our hearts that will become a saving light to a world living in darkness.
THE LION’S GLORY
The time is coming when God is going to shake everything that can be shaken (Haggai 2: 6-10). He does so because He is love, and He is coming back for a pure and spotless Bride. Now is the time to build the house of God, not our own houses – God’s plan, not our plans.
Shaking is going to come and is already happening – politically, financially, relationally, naturally. There will be a distinct separation of that which is of God and that which is not. Only that which is birthed out of God’s plans, agenda, wisdom will remain; all of man’s agenda, wisdom, motives, ambition, will be completely destroyed. If we have not learned to judge things not by the way they appear to the physical eyes, but to discern in the Spirit, then we will waver when we “hear of wars and rumors of wars”.
God’s people must begin to live in God’s ways and not our own ways, every moment of everyday – only then will we be able to stand firm, and after everything, to remain standing (Ephesians 6:13). Only those who remain standing are able to help others who could not stand, who are lost, and to feed the dying world with Fruit from the Vine.
To illustrate this point, the following is a series of other conversations, impressions, visions, and dreams that the Lord gave to me years ago.
i. DREAM: A group of people were in a high-rise building. A flood swept in without warning, and when I next opened my eyes, I was on top of a wooden raft – everywhere I turned there was only water, water, water. No buildings, no people, nothing. I tried to reach down my hand to salvage/safe some, but could not reach them as the water was so deep. The water submerged everything.
ii. DREAM: I was sitting in a fighter plane in the seat behind the Pilot. There was a war going on, but somehow I felt so much peace, well-being, and safety with this Pilot. He turned to me and said, “We have to go into enemy territory.” Many other things happened in the dream that are not relevant for the purpose of this article, but the one thing that is relevant is that at some point in the dream, the Pilot steered the plane over a city full of high-rise buildings. Every building that we flew past was completely torn down in an instant, and all that was left was rubble.
iii. DREAM: I was in an open space, when I looked up and saw snow flakes approaching in the distance. Everybody rejoiced, “Snow! Snow!”, but they did not see that the tiny snow flakes were increasing and it was an avalanche that was coming towards us. I turned around helplessly, and saw that I was in front of a house; a big, strong man stood in the open doorway, and he reached out his hand to take mine and pulled me into the house. He slammed the door shut just as the avalanche reached. When it was over, he opened the door, and we waded through snow that was high up to my shoulders. We then began to reach down and pull up few who had been buried by the avalanche, but were still alive. Many were already dead.
INTERPRETATION OF DREAMS: High-rise buildings are man-made, lofty things. The flood/avalanche is His revival, born out of water which is Holy Spirit, that comes at a time when no one expects. When His glory comes in, everything that is made from human wisdom/ambition/strength will be completely wiped away. Only those which have been built on Jesus will remain. Just like those who only had fun in the “Snow!” instead of warning others about the avalanche, we must beware of people who preach only what itching ears want to hear instead of warning God’s people about what is to come. These false teachers are like those described in Jeremiah 6:14, “They dress the wound of my people superficially, as though it were not serious. ‘Peace, peace,’ they say, when there is no peace”.
i. There was a huge tornado that swept up everything in its path. These are the words I felt in my heart, “The day of my Spirit will not be a day of great rejoicing, as you think. Instead, for most people it will be a day of great mourning, because My Glory will cause great destruction on the earth. Much that man has worked for will be utterly destroyed.”
ii. A huge bolt of lightning shot from the sky and hit the earth. These are the words I felt in my heart when I asked God for the meaning of what I was seeing, “With My Presence comes with great power, but it cannot be controlled, manipulated, nor generated by man. It will destroy anything that is not of compatible substance with It.”
3. Logos and Rhema.
i. I was praying about one of the dreams that I was particularly troubled over, when I felt a prompting so loud I was literally jolted from my seat, “Luke 4:32”. I turned to the passage, and it said, “Yet when planted, it (the mustard seed) grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.” Understanding dawned upon me, as revelation poured into me like a waterfall – those who are willing to die will find life again. When that happens, then we will be firmly rooted like trees planted by the water, unmovable and remaining fresh and green regardless of outside circumstances. Furthermore, we will also be able to provide help, strength and hope to others in those times of shaking, just as the tree provides shelter for the birds.
ii. I was troubled over the dream of the flood (the terrible sadness of the dream was still so fresh), and I was praying. These are the words I felt in my heart, “I promised Noah that never again would I flood the earth with water. This time, it is My spirit that will flood the earth. It will be a time of rejoicing for those who are for God, but most will mourn, even many in the Church.” Even many in the Church are still doing things according to human understanding, not God’s. If Holy Spirit were to walk out of our Church services today, how many of us would notice the difference? A time is coming soon when His Spirit will be poured out on all flesh, and when that day comes, if everything must bow down at the name of Jesus, how much of what we’ve built our lives on today will stand?
iii. Book of Haggai.
This is all I am released to share at this point, and I will share more when the Lord releases me to. I pray that Holy Spirit brings His words to life in your hearts!
