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.

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.

Ezekiel 2:8

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…

    The forgiving one is hard sometimes! I have learned over time how to forgive more quickly, not by my own power but remembering I am forgiven by God and I shall to forgive. So going to Him and asking his assistance in letting go of emotions that are attached that are keeping me from genuinely forgiving!ReplyCancel
