A SEPTEMBER OF DELIVERANCE & JUBILEE
I was in worship when I received a prophetic download of a timeline of 7 year threshold that was coming to head as we enter the Hebrew year 5784.
A GROWING PAINS, PURGING, & PIONEERING SEASON
This period of time began in September 2016 and represents a 7 year season where the church was in both the pioneering and preparation for a new era, experiencing growing pains, and also being purged of the old wineskin mindsets and methods.
We have seen this take place in real time as we have been living in a time of extreme tension between the excitement and often confrontation of new concepts and revelation as well as trudging through the grief and emotional roller coaster of a season of deep refinery and healing.
What do I believe this is for? We have been in the preparation like Esther moving out of one capacity and into another. God is coming for a pure bride and He has been purging us of the contaminating and poisonous religious spirit we have culturally accepted and delivering us of what we have collected and walked through so that we are ready for the coming SUMMONING of a generation who would go before the king on behalf of their nation!
In 2015/2016 many people felt the call to begin to pioneer and lead the way in new themes and revelation on the Lords heart and faithfully stepped out. These pioneers have walked through fire and brimstone to obediently answer the call but it’s meant signing up for a nomadic way of life, isolation, constant migration, and being the unpopular voice amongst the sheep.
However now the script changes because these ones have been prepared for what’s coming and God is going to use as the tip of His spear for the days ahead.
THE THRESHOLD OF A DOUBLE DOOR
I keep hearing the Lord saying “Come up here! Let me show you what is to come!”
It’s the Revelation 4:1 call to step into our inheritance of being “seated in Christ in heavenly places”
It’s the strategic seating of a people coming out of the swirl and being POSITIONED and CLEAR about where they are going.
Wow.. I feel that. We are at the threshold of a season of clarity and precision.
The arrows of our words and actions will no longer blindly be shot in the dark but they will hit the mark in Jesus name!
Yes, we are at the threshold of a double door that has swung open wide for the church and the Lord is calling us out of the 2nd heaven games, culture wars, and fighting off daily snakes and scorpions to step onto the real fight we were called to win!
EGYPT IS OVER – THE REAL CONQUEST IS NOW
As I’m writing this I hear “Egypt is over and now Canaan days are here”
This is where our real conquest begins. This is where the church rises up and occupies the land once more.
This is where we expand and take the territory that is ours for the taking.
This is where we stop seeing ourselves as grasshoppers and be the giant killers we have even called to be.
It’s time to step over the threshold.
THE SEVEN YEAR SEASON
So as I was praying I saw the following images/visions;
⁃ Seven oxen
⁃ Seven keys
⁃ Seven scrolls
⁃ A lamp stand with 7 burning candles
⁃ 2 Kings 5:14 where Naaman bathed in the Jordan 7 times.
I want to give you a simple summarized word of what I believe I saw and how that applies to us now but also for the year ahead;
THE SEVEN OXEN
The seven oxen represent the 7 years of the burning of old ways and methods personally and in the body of Christ.
It’s been the years of slaying the oxen and shutting the door to old cycles and religious thinking.
Our assignment has been reformed and like Elisha who slayed his oxen when he was called by Elijah, we have had to end our last role in preparation for what God was leading us into.
This has meant having to allow many seeds to die and old alignments to come to a close.
Corporately we have seen roles and definitions change. Generals have moved on into glory and whole generations rising up to pickup the baton of a new day.
The days of religious activity has come to an end and destructive empire building, hierarchy, and elitism has been breathing its last breath.
You can smell the smoke right now and movements still hanging onto the old ways will find themselves pushing uphill in the days to come.
THE SEVEN KEYS
The seven keys represent seven years of discovery or should I say “recovery” of keys of access for the kingdom of God.
This is the picking up of keys that the body of Christ has forfeited and left in the dust.
The seven keys are needed because I believe they are needed to enter into the doors before us in this new era.
These keys are the keys of forgotten truths and tools the church needs for the harvest at hand.
Deliverance, healing, signs and wonders, sonship, holiness, justice, and truth.
God has been handing them out to the hungry ones while those who have bought into the lies of culture have found themselves imprisoned.
THE SEVEN SCROLLS
The seven scrolls are the seven years of VISION & INSIGHT for the days ahead.
The scrolls represent 7 years of revelation and entering into a realm of visitation for the years ahead.
They are the letters from the Lords heart and the blueprints and infrastructure for the new era of building and establishing the kingdom.
They are the specific strategies and building blocks to pioneer what is on Gods heart.
The scrolls are the sweet honey that have come from the secret place and the dark nights of the soul that will soon be the mortar for the new move of the spirit.
The lamp-stand represents the different streams of the church all burning bright for the lord.
It represents the 7 years where the Lord has been calling the church back to her first love and to trim their lamps for the days ahead like the wise virgins.
Some have yet some haven’t. It’s been a time of deep testing of hearts and motives.
It’s been a time of purification and burning away the “baals” and idols on the hearts of the church.
I believe the lamp-stand ultimately represents the church being one burning voice for the Lord in the days to come.
The enemy is stirring up a storm right now in the earth and if we are not full of oil and burning we will be taken out by the enemy.
It’s time to burn!
THE SEVEN DIPS IN THE JORDAN
Now this last vision was the most intense yet also beautiful. What I witnessed was the very heart of the father towards us and the global church.
I saw the scripture 2 Kings 5 and then saw a vision of a man covered in leprous sores wading into the waters of the Jordan. He was hesitant and deeply troubled.
Then I felt the love of the father overwhelm me and his love for this man. It wrecked me.
“Wow. Your love for him is overwhelming.. “I thought.
The church, Gods bride is his love. I felt it so much in that moment.
“But I’m covered in sores?” I could sense him thinking. “Im unclean!”
But against his common sense he dipped 7 times until he was made clean.
The last seven years has been a time of deep cleansing from the sores and leprousy of the past. But I think this is actually taking place right now.
Even as I’m writing this I can feel the healing balm of the Lord delivering and restoring people.
What is on your back? What have you been covered in?
Watch as God delivers you this month and FINISHES what He started!
NOW WATCH JUBILEE UNFOLD!
Now lastly let me prophesy and decree over you – you have entered your JUBILEE in Jesus name!
Here are a few other meanings of seven in the Bible and how they apply for right now;
The Shemitah falls every seven years, where debts are canceled, and the land must lie fallow.
After seven cycles of seven years pass, the jubilee year is declared.
Slaves are to be freed on the seventh year.
Rituals of purification make use of seven sprinklings or immersions, and a seven-day period.
