The 21-minute video shown below presents a powerful word for the trail blazers, the pioneers, those who left their comfort zone to follow the path God gave them.
These pioneers had lived a lifestyle of faith jumps for this time without any respite or break from the journey of extreme risk and had laid down everything for the Lord and now in 2021 had come to a place of tension. A place where either they are either broken and dashed or they experience breakthrough.
Many started out with wonder, an excitement, and adventure but instead of supernatural outcomes and fulfillment had been experiencing delays, loss, hope deferred, and closed doors.
The reality is we are in a moment of extreme tension right now between the hopelessness and hope deferred the enemy is wanting you to buy into and the fresh hope God is revealing.
We are in the tension of the battle that we see raging around us and the promise of God and it’s fulfillment.
We are in the place of extreme contention where the warfare seems to have increased because delivery is just around the corner!
Then I saw the months of March – July and how in these months there was a boiling point that had been reached in the spirit full of even further increased hardship, stops signs, and the overwhelming pressure to give up. Then I heard the Lord speak;
“I am giving eyes to see!”
“Do you see this season for what it really is? Can you look you the smoke and fog to see what is really unfolding?”
“Do you see the door of hope or the door of death and finality?”
“Do you see the tension and pain or the birthing that is happening?”
“Right now I am releasing eyes of faith to see this moment the way I see it so that those pursuing the uncommon promise do not lose hope!”
Many have said in this season “After everything I have done it still looks lost” but there is something coming that you can’t orchestrate or have anticipated.
You’ve done what you can do now this is where you watch God do what only He can do. You tried everything to keep that old thing alive and breathe life into dry bones but to no avail.
Now watch as the four winds of God blows upon your life, cleansing you, healing you, and resurrects something brand new.
You will realize that the death to the seed was needed so that the new life could come forth and the burying of the old had to be done so that something new could emerge.
Then I heard the Lord say, “Now it’s time to multiply.”
And I realized that the seed dying was for the purpose of the harvest that had to come. The blessing God wanted to pour out was in the ending to what had limitations upon it.
This is where you see what you faithfully stewarded suddenly multiply and increase right before you. This is where you see what you surrendered turn into something you couldn’t have imagined and your small mustard seeds of faith to follow Gods leading become sturdy trees in the nations. This is where what looks hopeless and lost and dead suddenly begins to blossom and bloom into something beyond what you could have ever envisioned.
You may not see it and you may not be able to see how but God is going to use what has come against you to multiply you. The words and accusations, judgements, and slander are being shut down and buried and in their place God is springing forth redemption and favor you couldn’t have imagined.
“Will I not vindicate the road behind you?” says the Lord. “Will I not restore what the locust ate, what was robbed from you, and deal with injustice? For right now now I am bringing restoration to your house!”
This is not the end. This is a new beginning, a hallmark of faith moment. Many have been through a season of blind faith and now comes the moment of graduation. No longer pursuing but now beholding. You’re going to enjoy the fulfillment of this process and journey.
I saw that the months of August – October were shifting months for the pioneers.
There are held up outcomes and decisions that will be released in this time and Pivotal decision making revelation and insight that will come that is necessary to know how to move and when to move.
There will be the final release of delayed legalities and red tape that will be unlocked and there will be loopholes and ways to move forward in areas that have looked shut.
The convergence of hardship and promise simultaneously is going to produce not just a new beginning and way forward but a breakthrough that is going to be like a sonic boom that clears the air and settles the road behind you.
These months will be very important shifting months for those who are still living up in the air and haven’t known where to settle and to plant.
Nomads and wanderers, buckle up just a little bit longer. We’re going somewhere because all your transition has not been in vain, but this is a time that for all your moving around and back and forth, God is going to lead you to the land where you will be able to put down your roots in the next few months, ending the frustration of not belonging and the pain of not feeling grounded in this process because you are being led to your nexus.
This is the place where everything you have been stewarding will begin to unfold and be built. The warfare against you in this convergence moment is to cause you to shut down instead of pursuing the final stages of this grand adventure with God, but resist it! Just keep moving forward! This is where migration begins to increase because God is moving you into position for this phase of your journey. This is where God opens the way where it feels like there has been no way forward and no clarity and direction.
In the months to come God is going to stir you in a way you haven’t felt in years. It will feel like a river is beginning to swell and break the banks of your heart and you won’t be able to contain it.
It will be like a fresh mighty wave building on the inside of you that you cannot hold back or hide. It’s the wave of the spirit of God that He gave you at the beginning of this journey to run with. Once just a tiny swell now through agitation and the process has become a formidable force for the kingdom.
It’s your movement. Maybe small and insignificant at first but it’s building and something has shifted in the battle. Your movement has multiplied too and soon you will see it impact the earth publicly and globally and go beyond what you could have done with it.
Your raw faith steps have produced this. Following Jesus has created this.
You said yes and He poured out the bowls of heaven upon it and now you will see what has looked hidden and foolish to the world become a mighty giant for the kingdom of heaven.
Your movement is about to MULTIPLY.
Even now God us downloading new plans, fresh vision for it, and establishing connections and pathways you couldn’t have orchestrated. Soon it is going to burst the banks and you’ll need to know what to do with it because God knows He can trust you with it.
Like a puzzle God is using you as a major player and piece for this time of history and for the harvest at hand. Soon you and others will see the full picture and measure of what this looks like.
You once moved with it obediently but you are about to move with it strategically. You once saw it as an overflow of your worship but soon you will see that your worship has created an apostolic movement that is going to impact nations.
Get ready for fresh downloads and visions that will confront the outdated methods and starting to expire ways you are operating. God is giving you the building plans for the next 5 years and vision that will require another huge jump of faith to step into it. But it’s already in you and God has already cleared the way.
Pioneers this is what you were born for. You aren’t alone. Keep trekking forward because your life will be a sign and a wonder of God’s goodness to all who see it!
