I want to prophesy over God’s people today who have been on the sidelines, especially the voices, prophets, preachers, and pioneers—those who carry a message that hasn’t yet been heard. Generally, these are simply those born with spiritual keys and blueprints beyond their time and they have had to walk through a myriad of uncomfortable and painful experiences to faithfully steward this call. For years now God keeps saying
“Look to the wilderness,”
because what these ones carry is so precious and pure due to the intense refining they have had to endure. If I’m speaking to you already then this word is simply to encourage you and remind you that regardless of what you see, this is your time!
DUE SEASON IS UPON YOU!
We have so often heard the overuse of phrases such as
“This is your time!”
“You were born for such a time as this!”
to the point that when it actually is “Our time” we don’t believe it or value it as we should. I feel like God wants to really drive something home to you starting today and into the years to come –
THIS REALLY IS YOUR TIME!
That’s right. More than ever before we are in a time called
. Did you really think that all the years behind you would amount to nothing? Did you really think that God would overlook you? This is your due season and the fulfillment of time for those who have been in waiting and worship.
THE HOUR OF FULL ACCEPTANCE & THE AUTHENTIC FAMILY OF GOD
As I’ve been writing for the Emerging Voices Collective
(which launches in the New Year)
I’ve been having constant revelation bubbling up from my spirit about how God is revealing—and about to reveal—sons and daughters. It’s the outpouring of
that comes as a response to the cries of the earth for sons and daughters! (Romans 8:19)
Romans 8:15 says this;
“And you did not receive the ‘spirit of religious duty,’ leading you back into the fear of never being good enough. But you have received the ‘Spirit of full acceptance,’ enfolding you into the family of God.”
So much of the baggage and bondage that we as voices carry, such as rejection, dishonor, and control/abuse can be remedied by the full acceptance and love of the Father; which is why He is doing that right now in us. Notice this scripture points to being enfolded into a “family” of God, not a Christian club or network. It has to be real. It has to be a safe place and authentically relational. And yes I know this scripture is referring to something more deeply intimate with the Lord not people, but there is something God is doing in
families right now to apply the healing balm of the acceptance of God to those who have been outcasts their whole lives. This is the revival I see coming to the Church and the personal revival that God is bringing to you in this hour.
RENAMED & RE-MANED MISFITS LIVING IN FULL PERMISSION
Let’s stop for a moment…
Does that register with you in any way, shape, or form?
Have you struggled to fit your unique calling into a local church or group of believers and felt like a square peg in a round hole? Have you been managed, manipulated, controlled, owned, squashed, and silenced? Have you been through the pain of dishonor and betrayal over and over again? Have you constantly lived as the misfit Christian cousin of the mainstream church folk and wondered why God made you the way you are?
You may not understand it—and you may never have all your questions of your past seasons answered—but you need to know today that God has not forgotten you. In fact,
THIS IS YOUR MOMENT!
God is raising up a radical movement of misfits for the Kingdom to go where no one else will go and to SAY what no one else will say! This is the season God is giving the remnant of misfits a new name, a new vision, and a fresh new start. When God told me He was giving them a new name I heard
“Renamed and re-maned”
. So many mighty voices have had their manes shaven off through different trials but watch now as it grows back and God restores double honor to you!
IT’S AN ISAIAH 61 SEASON OF HEALING, REVEALING, RE-ALIGNING, & BURSTING OUTSIDE OF THE WALLS OF THE CHURCH
Only a month ago, Christy had a dream where she was in Jerusalem and at a synagogue where people were flooding out into the street, and on the top of the building it said “AD-26”. When we looked it up we were amazed to discover that it was in AD26 that Jesus began His ministry. That very year Jesus began, He walked into the synagogue and read from Isaiah 61. This is what happened;
“He unrolled the scroll and read where it is written, ‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, and he has anointed me to be hope for the poor, freedom for the brokenhearted, and new eyes for the blind, and to preach to prisoners, “You are set free!” I have come to share the message of Jubilee, for the time of God’s great acceptance has begun.’ After he read this he rolled up the scroll, handed it back to the minister, and sat down. Everyone stared at Jesus, wondering what he was about to say. Then he added, ‘These Scriptures came true today in front of you.'” (Luke 4:18-20)
This line stood out to me
“The great acceptance has begun”
but what hit me even deeper is Jesus’ boldness to say
“this came true before you today”
because He initiated a movement of sons coming into a right relationship with God and
BACK INTO POSITION.
That’s right, many have been out of position, diverted from their original call and purpose through the attacks against what they carry—
BUT NO MORE!
This move of acceptance is not just a message or revelation of sonship, it’s a tangible encounter with the King of righteousness that shows the whole world what they were created for—to know Him and reveal Him! The world is craving to know this simple revelation which is why God is using the outcasts to embody this message to the Church and beyond in this season, so we can truly be an Isaiah 61 generation that leads the lost to Jesus. We can’t keep just preaching to the choir!
RELIGIONS WINESKIN JUST CAN’T CONTAIN YOU
“Because this is an unusual people I have called, protected, and reserved,”
says the Lord,
“they will not be tainted by religion’s double-minded ways and love of self and humanistic standards but they will be ones who have braved the attacks of the accuser who sought to silence them and poison them against My Church. But now I am calling them out of the wilderness and into influence because I have put My Spirit upon them to say what I want them to say and they will say it without care of reputation and without agenda. They are pure and they won’t try to fit the old wineskin or cater to religion’s red tape, but they will be used as breakers to usher in freedom!”
RECOMMISSIONING & REAWAKENING PRAYER
As I’m writing this I feel the Fear of the Lord all over me because this isn’t meant to be just a feel-good word.
This is game time! You are needed!
You can’t keep identifying as an orphan or a victim. What God placed inside of you was before its time so it was never intended to “fit” but to
. So, even that revelation is going to start defining for you why you are valuable to the Kingdom. What God is doing in you right now is revealing your true identity to you, where you haven’t known or truly believed it. This revealing of identity is important because in the past when the Church or other believers rejected you, it easily took you out. Acceptance is right now counteracting every lie that has prevented you from moving on from being a victim into being the overcomer you were made to be. Acceptance is right now doing business with every demonic agreement you have ever made that has kept you in a holding pattern—chained to people, places, old movements, unhealthy relationships, and words/curses spoken—that grounded you and shut up your voice. Can you see how this year especially God has been dealing with all these types of things? It has been painful in the moments that these things are being brought to the surface but also so freeing.
Let it all go. This is your season, this is your time and you are a move of God waiting to happen; so let it happen!
Let me pray a prayer of recommissioning and personal revival over you. Put your hand on your heart and say:
“Lord I let go of all that is behind me, all that was left undone, and all that I didn’t understand. I let go of all pain, trauma, fear, betrayal, rejection, abuse, control, and dishonor that shut me down, and I forgive every person who was used to inflict those wounds upon me. I make a choice to sever all ties to those situations and even the cycles of pain in my life right now and I move into the new day You have waiting for me. I am free, I am accepted, I am loved, and I no longer have to see myself as a victim, in fact, I renounce calling myself a victim or an outcast because You call me an outcast no longer.”
Now put your hand on your belly and say:
“Holy Spirit, the message, the voice, the song, the words, the creativity, the movement You have placed inside me, I say to those things right now to REAWAKEN in Jesus’ name. This is my season, this is my hour, and NOTHING will rob or sidetrack me from it again in Jesus’ name!
