I was quite intrigued to hear Chuck Pierce release a word over our nation about coming to a “Full Circle” time (beginning) during this past week. In mid-July our family was in the process of moving cross country (from Virginia to Oregon). When we reached Columbia, Missouri to spend the night, I walked into the hotel room and on the wall was a photograph of a ferris wheel turning and I immediately heard the words, “Full circle is coming.”
The reason we had moved to the Washington DC region was because God had asked us to go there to pray for our nation and to stand with those who had been faithfully praying in governmental realms for many years. It was an assignment that was both sacrificial and beautiful all at the same time. In that moment we were returning to where we had begun and the Lord was declaring a “Full Circle” beginning.
But what does this saying, “Full Circle” mean? In this particular case it had many different meanings and messages for me personally but this is what I see for our nation.
When we set out on our two year assignment to be on the ground in Washington DC, the church was full of hope for what we were seeing spiritually and naturally. We sensed that we may be on the verge of overturning Roe vs Wade, our US embassy in Israel had been moved to Jerusalem, prayer and worship was encouraged and received in The White House, Christian rights were being upheld and our nation appeared to be experiencing a reformation. Quite honestly, I wondered why we were being sent since everything was going so well. The need for reinforcements didn’t appear crucial— little did we know what was coming.
Yet, when our assignment of living full time in the DC region was completed— hopes had been dashed, a pandemic had come and darkness had come upon our land. Therefore when I heard the word “full circle” I wondered why I felt such hope— for all that we had stood for and prayed for appeared lost.
I then felt as though the Lord said,
“When you began the journey there was great hope in the hearts of My people. Now, in the midst of what looks like defeat, you will witness the fulfillment of many hopes and prayers that were offered to Me. Hope will come full circle to the place of fulfillment.”
I cannot say what this will look like or how it can happen (or how long it will take)— except that it will be done by the hand of God. No man will be given credit for this season of full circle because it will be miraculous. What has been “shock and awe” to the people who walk in the fear of the Lord will not become “shock and awe” to the enemy’s camp. It will be a full circle turnaround.
I believe this is not only for our nation but for many individual lives as well. You will find yourself standing in a place or position that you stood once before but this time the outcome will be different— you are different and you will have victory. Hope deferred will become desires fulfilled during this full circle season of time.
The journey has been difficult and full of trials and testings but as you have yielded to God, his character in you has been developed and your “waiting for God” has been received as worship. The turnaround has begun. The reward for “those who wait upon him is coming.”
“For when you did awesome things that we did not expect, you came down, and the mountains trembled before you. Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.” Isaiah 64:3-4
Chuck Pierce prophesied that October 18th would begin this season of full circle turnaround. We come into agreement with this prophecy and declare, “It has begun!” It is as if we got on a ferris wheel and it has gone through the full cycle and we will get off where we began but everything will be different. We will be different, outcomes will be different and hopes will become realities.
The words from Isaiah 54 rush through my spirit like refreshing water,
““Sing, O barren one, who did not bear; break forth into singing and cry aloud, you who have not been in labor! For the children of the desolate one will be more than the children of her who is married,” says the Lord. “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes. For you will spread abroad to the right and to the left, and your offspring will possess the nations and will people the desolate cities. “Fear not, for you will not be ashamed; be not confounded, for you will not be disgraced; for you will forget the shame of your youth, and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more. For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name; and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer, the God of the whole earth he is called. For the Lord has called you like a wife deserted and grieved in spirit, like a wife of youth when she is cast off, says your God. For a brief moment I deserted you, but with great compassion I will gather you. In overflowing anger for a moment I hid my face from you, but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,” says the Lord, your Redeemer.” (vs. 1-8…be sure to read the whole chapter)
Our brief moment had come full circle and redemption will meet us where we began— where our hopes began. Rejoice— a great “reboot” has begun!
