Coming Out of the Cave



Over the years many prophetic types and intercessors have spoken time and time again about hearing sounds of the earth groaning...here and there, sounds of the moving earth...

At the same time Abba has been realigning His children, hiding his children, taking the off the grid and hiding them under the protection of His wings...

And like in the days of old the children have seen themselves "alone" unaware of all that He has hidden...remaining quiet least they be found out....

BUT NOW the earth and the children SHALL sound forth in a growing cadence of His voice.

For the days of remaining quiet, of remaining silent, of consistent hiding are coming to an end...slowly but surely He is bringing forth the hidden prophets from the caves to show His power through the sounds of Heaven...
 
However, DO NOT EXPECT THINGS TO BE AS THEY WERE...for this is a new season where the sounds of heaven bring forth the power and the life He has declared over us...
 
Power and Glory are His forever and ever...
 
Enlarge and magnify your expectations for the days of thinking small are done and shall be forgotten for as big as our God so SHALL BE THE MANIFESTATION OF HIS POWER AND GLORY...AMEN AND AMEN

Dutch Sheets on 2015

Dutch Sheets has a prophetic word for 2015. He delivered this early in the year, but I've just now got it for posting.

The video portion of this is really ugly (someone aimed a camera at a computer monitor). But the audio is clear enough to understand well.

This is worth hearing.

God Is Releasing A Company Of Prophetic Messengers To Washington State and California

4/12/2015, from Melody Paasch

A SIGNIFICANT DREAM ABOUT CALIFORNIA AND WASHINGTON STATE
Just a bit of background before I share about our recent trip to California.   Sometime in 2011, I had a very vivid and significant dream.  In this dream, I was specifically told that the birds would be arriving in California and Washington State.  I asked what birds, to which I immediately heard, “The migratory birds.”  I asked, for what reason and was given a message that I believe is one of many strategies for the Body of Christ in this time.  God began to speak to me through the following passage in Jeremiah. 

Jeremiah 8:7-9 Amplified Bible (AMP)

7 [Even the migratory birds are punctual to their seasons.] Yes, the stork [excelling in the great height of her flight] in the heavens knows her appointed times [of migration], and the turtledove, the swallow, and the crane observe the time of their return. But My people do not know the law of the Lord [which the lower animals instinctively recognize in so far as it applies to them].

8 How can you say, We are wise, and we have the written law of the Lord [and are learned in its language and teachings]? Behold, the truth is, the lying pen of the scribes has made of the law a falsehood (a mere code of ceremonial observances).


I sensed that Papa was saying that it is our responsibility as the Body of Christ to seek Him and know our seasons and the plans He has in His heart.  By instinct (by The Spirit and not just the written word), as a part of God’s army, we should know His strategy and His timing.  The Kingdom of God is IN us and NEAR to us!  There are times and seasons that are strategically marked in God’s records for significant and specific events in the earth.  I believe that we are in one of those moments! If we are to labor with Him in His plans and purposes, we must sense those events and be willing to follow our Godly instincts.

THE MIGRATORY BIRDS REPRESENT GOD'S MESSENGERS IN NEED OF REFUGE
Since 2011, this dream has come up many times, but back in December of 2014, while in the Kansas City area with a friend, it was reiterated yet again!  This time I felt a very strong confirmation that this was the year I needed to instigate a prophetic journey to respond to Papa’s message.  The destination?  San Juan Capistrano, CA.  Why?  Because it is known as a historic receiver and incubator to the swallows migrating from Argentina in March every year.  It was a prophetic type and symbol. 

I knew that it was a prophetic picture of the messengers of God being received into the region, with safe haven for future growth and maturity. I believe that God is saying that California and Washington State will be birthing places for His prophetic voices, and this pattern will then sweep East across the nation.  I know that He is restoring and installing the voice of the prophetic everywhere, but for some reason this region is definitely an area He is talking about.  I can only address the part I'm given.  

These anointed ones will move across the U.S. from the West Coast to the East Coast, releasing the word and heart of God for the nation.  It will set a precedence in the spiritual realm, dispatching the angelic for needed direction and strategy.  He is releasing more of His champions with very specific talents, to work side by side with others who are devoted to building the Kingdom of God in every area of culture and society.  Not to build man's agenda with all of it's nuances and control, but to release Papa's heart for this time and people. I believe that He loves mankind above all of His creation, and desires to labor with us in the earth. 

So, upon our arrival we had a daunting surprise!  Julie, one of my beloved interns, and I arrived at the San Juan Capistrano Mission, looking for the yearly arrival of the legendary swallows!   We found, to our dismay, that they no longer have an inviting home there, even though there has been such a long and rich heritage of their migration in this place.

THE HOUSE IS UNDER RECONSTRUCTION

During a long process of the mission’s reconstruction, management built man-made homes for the birds, hoping the swallows would accept the new structures as sanctuary for themselves.  Unfortunately, the swallows have begun to find other nesting areas to thrive in during their season there. This feels a bit like what we do in Christianity at times.  Could it be that we sometimes tear down the natural order of things to build something bigger, or maybe better?  Not that there is anything wrong with progress, as long as it’s congruent with God’s plan.  It also seems that the mess the swallows brought with them, had been an inconvenience to the surrounding merchants.  They were considered by some, to be an annoyance. 

We noticed that the crows and other predatory birds had taken squatters rights and were running most of the smaller birds away.  We watched and grieved as one little swallow came into the courtyard of the mission only to experience the aggression of a crow.  This was beginning to look like a pattern of some things we sometimes witness or experience in far right or radical religious circles.

I sense that the church as a whole has been in the middle of reconstruction (this is a good thing by the way) and that there has been little room for the young prophets or messengers of God. Have they fallen through the cracks of churchianity?  Maybe a man-made structure with an accurate architecture is being offered, just as it is at the mission, but lacking the heart and comfort of home. I wonder if these marked messengers feel that they are no longer welcome, or maybe can’t trust what is being offered them. They may realize that the structures built for their safety are simply a replica of a safe place.

ARE THE PROPHETS IN THE CHURCH TODAY?
So, I also find myself wondering if they have been hiding out, sitting before The Father, learning in secret from The Spirit?  The word does say that The Holy Spirit is our teacher and that He alone can teach us what we need to know.  However, I believe that God’s heart is to do so through loving leadership, as well as directly through His communication with us.  Without the needed experience of true community, those called of God can find it difficult to manage the use of their gifts, as well as their ethical behavior.  They may find that they are not generally accepted in Christianity, and are often judged and labelled as rebels.

Thus, there may be parts of the church, operating without the gift of the prophetic, and the young prophets may not be effectively prepared.  This is a travesty!  The Word says (Rev. 19:10) that the spirit of prophecy is the clear testimony or witness of Jesus.  If that was true when the Bible was written, wouldn't that still be true, today?

It was interesting to me during the mission visit, that there was only the one small swallow that had the gumption to ignore the malicious caws of the crows.  Could the crows represent the ultra-religious, who do not believe that the gifts are for today?  It was sad really, and at the same time, I sensed such courage in this small bird.  This little and seemingly insignificant one seemed not to be phased. He was not honored for his valiant arrival, yet he ignored the quips of the mockers. 

WHAT A SWEET SURPRISE!
It reminded me of young Saul when he was secretly anointed for kingship by Samuel in 1 Samuel 10. He literally turned a deaf ear!  It is written that The Lord's prophetic message over him changed Saul that day!  The prophetic can set direction, can give affirmation to what we know in our hearts, and can change circumstances when God chooses to release over us what is in His heart.

I watched that day, as that little swallow eventually took perch upon the erected index finger of a statue of the canonized representative for the mission: a priest who was the historic and celebrated advocate for the small and weak travelers to the mission.  What a sweet surprise!!!!  The swallow took the platform of the prophetic index finger as depicted by the five-fold ministry!*

* The five fingers of your hand are sometimes used as a way to remember the Five-fold Ministry of God’s Kingdom: 
1. Thumb - apostle (authority/leadership) 
2. Index Finger – prophet (messenger/one who decrees)
3. Middle Finger - evangelist (one who reaches out) 
4. Ring Finger - pastor (shepherd/covenant gatherer) 
5. Pinkie Finger - teacher (one who speaks/processes what will nourish the hearer).

I sat in awe as the little guy began to voice his passion vehemently.  I was amazed that such a tiny creature could have such a strong resolve!  He with deep fervor, progressively became louder!  It seemed for a moment that he was literally preaching directly to me.  He was trying to tell us something very important.  We watched as other people began to slowly gather, curious about what we were looking at and what had us so mesmerized.

As the people gathered, I stepped back to see the bigger picture.  While he preached his burning message, the people watched, taking photographs as though he were performing for them.  Isn’t this the way the gifts of The Spirit are sometimes received?  As a novelty or show?  The more the small crowd gathered before the little swallow, the more passionate he became!  What in the world was this small brave one telling us all?  I feared the crowd was not sensitive to his strong attempt, but Julie and I were acutely aware that it was immensely important and we listened intently to his strong effort. 

INVITING A NEW PROPHETIC BREED FOR A NEW MOVE OF GOD

Later, as we processed the events of the day, it all became very clear.  We knew that the reason we had been sent to the mission was to welcome the migratory birds, which represented the hidden prophetic voices in the earth.  Apparently, they do need welcoming, even to have the ability to arrive in their appointed place and time!  Clearly, what God requires of us as prophetic leaders in every area of ministry, is that we continually cultivate a safe environment for the inexperienced, but strong to be raised up.  It is my experience, that the prophetic needs very particular teaching, training and preparation for the understanding of their gifts.  I am seeking Papa even now, for better understanding of what that must look like. 

Julie, I and the NIT family knew that this trip was a prophetic act to invite a new prophetic breed for a new move of God, into all the safe places prepared for their installment and launching.  As you may know, not every place of spiritual equipping is a safe place for the prophetic.  I must remind you though, that God will do nothing without speaking it first to His prophets.  This is His declaration to all the ages and generations of mankind.  He has promised that He will co-labor to create, with and through His prophets and His prophetic people. 

IF WE WELCOME THESE MESSENGERS INTO A SAFE PLACE
I strongly felt that this was an extraordinary moment we were honored to experience; and that Papa was confirming that there would be an influx of the "pure" prophetic into all organizations that are willing to train and equip through freedom of The Spirit of Truth.  I fear that it will not happen without true relationship.  If we welcome these messengers into safe and loving environments, they will grow and mature for their designated occasion and purposes. 

My heart and prayer is that we will welcome those with a prophetic call into the body of Christ for safe keeping and nurture, releasing them in maturity for these strategic times.  God’s heart is to develop what He has placed within each of us, and His purpose is to release us in His will and employment.

Remember Elijah on the mountain, when he was led to call out the false prophets?  I believe that we as the church, are at a crossroads and that we are being called to raise the bar.  God is calling up the brave and the resolute, to speak His heart wrapped in His deep love, and without compromise or fear of man.  This is the time that God WILL restore and release the true prophets of HIS house.  I do not believe that He'll do it without them.  Whether we believe that the gift of prophecy is for today in the church or not, I hope we will welcome those who are called, to step up and fulfill their God given destiny.  Will we, as the Body of Christ, welcome God’s messengers for this strategic moment in time?

APCE Word of the Lord For 2015

Author: Cindy Jacobs

Each year, as we have since 1999, the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders met before the New Year to pray and seek the Lord for a word. In 2011, we added a group of emerging prophetic leaders that, as of this year, we consider fully seasoned members of our round table, and we included their input as well into this word of the Lord.

The ACPE has the conviction that we are to function as the disciples did in Acts 13:1-3. This passage notes that it was the Holy Spirit releasing a prophetic word as a consensus of the prophets as opposed to the exclusive utterance of any one prophet. So, even though this is a compilation of the prophecies that we each have brought to the round table meeting, it was the general consensus of the ACPE members that the Holy Spirit was speaking the following prophetic words to us.

While we are calling this a prophecy for 2015, it should be noted that the ACPE believes that the Lord speaks more in seasons, as opposed to our calendar years. In the past few years we have observed that the trend of some of the prophetic words has been continuing over the course of several years and intensifying.

It is also important to note that intercession may diminish the severity of some of the words that speak of potential judgment—and in some cases may avert them all together. In any case, all prophecies should be bathed in intercession, both the ones that speak of harvest and blessing, as well as the ones with the admonitions attached to them.

As prophets, it is always wise to go back and look at the words we have given in the past. We did this for the years 2011-14, noting that the Lord continues to speak some of the trends spoken in those years. So let us reiterate—the timing of prophetic words should generally be understood more as a season than a calendar year. The words given are not fate or karma but can be changed subject to how God's people respond.


2015 - The Turn-Around Year

This is the year when God will give His people the chance to recalibrate in the midst of what will seem to be a whirlwind year. To recalibrate means to correct in mid-course, modify, amend, change, metamorphose, renovate, transform, or turn.

When caught in a whirlwind, you may need to do all of the above. The good news is that God is going to release the anointing, wisdom, and supernatural ability needed to change your circumstances on a whole new level. Remember that God often speaks to us in unusual ways in the midst of shakings and whirlwinds—and sometimes it’s a recalibration word.

God spoke to Job out of the whirlwind: “Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, ‘Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?’” (Job 38:1-2, KJV)

The Living Bible interprets verse two like this: “Why are you using your ignorance to deny my providence?”

Job’s thoughts were out of alignment with God’s. There are many things that are out of proper alignment, but God is going to set them in proper order if you believe. This year God will show you how to move from helplessness to hopefulness!

This will be a year when God will hear your cry. In 2 Kings 20:1-11, Hezekiah was told that he was going to die, but he turned his face to the wall, cried out to God, was given 15 more years of life. Hezekiah had a turnaround from death to life.

A new grace to fight for healing in the face of an evil report will come upon God's people. In this violent, tumultuous season, the strategies for turning even the most desperate situations in your favor will be given to those who seek God's face. God is going to turn around your impossible situations.

Rest

The 15th day of the month in the Hebraic calendar represents rest. There will be a new emphasis on the Sabbath's rest. The admonition was given by the prophets that each person should seek the Lord about how to enter into rest in this season. For some it will be to take a Sabbatical. Others will adjust their schedules not to work on Sundays. Others will cut down their workloads or schedules. Everyone, in some manner, needs to make a change in their lives to enter into rest.  This will empower you to overcome the giants you faced in the last season and be refreshed as you enter into a new season.

This is also what is known in Hebrew tradition as the shemitah year or the 7th year of the 7-year agricultural cycle. This is not just a usual Sabbath year, and this re-enforces the need for rest.  What is true rest for some may not be restful for another.

The number 5 represents grace in the Bible, and a special grace will be given in the midst of the whirlwinds.

Avoid distractions that will take away from your focus on the central things God is giving you to accomplish. It could be said like this: “Don’t take on assignments that God will not hold you accountable for, things that will hinder your ability to complete with excellence the assignments for which He will hold you accountable.” There will be swirling around you, but don't be pulled off of your God-given assignments.

In the Hebrew calendar, this is the year 5775, and the two fives represent double grace or the double portion. This is a continuation of the double portion season from last year. Expect grace for fulfillment, to complete, and to finish.

Again, in the midst of the whirlwinds and trials, worship is the key to see your release!

Divine Midnight Turnarounds

This is going to be a year for divine midnight turnarounds. There is a significant contrast between what was and what is to come. The midnight hour is that dark time when we have to choose between believing God or the devil, where we either say that God is faithful or we experience a faith failure by letting our emotions rule.

Paul and Silas worshiped God when in chains, and at the midnight hour, God gave them the turnaround (Acts 16:25). The Lord will remove your chains at the midnight hour!

Samson lay down until midnight but then got up and tore the doors off the city gate (Judges 16:3). Supernatural strength comes at the midnight hour!

Deliverance from the Egyptians came at the midnight hour (Exodus 11:4). The Lord will move on your behalf at the midnight hour. You will be released from any oppressor!

Ruth changed the heart of her kinsman-redeemer at midnight (Ruth 3:8). The Lord will manifest as your kinsman-redeemer at the midnight hour! This speaks of the restoration of generational inheritance.

There are also those who have despaired of getting married, and for many, their Boaz will manifest in this season.

God will require us to stand firm in the midnight hour of changing seasons. We cannot afford to stay in the old season. As mentioned above, the word “recalibrate” indicates metamorphosis; the picture is appropriate because it involves a struggle. 

The Enemy’s Plans For You Will Boomerang

Esther 9:1-4 speaks of the turnaround from the plans of their enemy that God gave His people. Interestingly, in verse one, this Hebraic word "turned" in the Strong's Concordance is the number 2015! It means “to overturn, to turn around, to transform and reverse.” 

This is the year of divine reversals! The number 15 in scripture is linked to victory and harvest. The Feast of Tabernacles, Unleavened Bread, and Purim all happen on the 15th day of the month.

Esther 9:24-26 says that the evil scheme the Jews’ enemy, Haman, had worked out came back onto his own head (boomeranged). This was a divine turn around at the Jews’ midnight hour!

So what has the enemy been plotting against you? It’s going to boomerang right back onto his head!

The Church

We are now in the Jesus People Movement that has been prophesied about for years. The great harvest of souls is now upon us, and with it, another Great Awakening.

This is the age when God is releasing a new wave of evangelists and evangelism into the church.  Revivalists will once again go to the streets and move in great supernatural power.

The Lord gave us the admonition that the role of the evangelist must be emphasized in the church. With this will come a shifting in emphasis from preaching a more social gospel to preaching a supernatural gospel. God is getting ready to make surprise visits in the church with His miracle-working power. Coupled with this, a new move of compassion and acts of mercy will flow from the church. The church will remember the poor, and the love of God will touch broken lives.

There are also those who will arise like Moses to lead God's people out of idolatry.

We in one accord felt the strong admonition to guard against deception in the church. Many will deceive themselves in order to follow the lusts of their flesh.

The church will learn to wage spiritual warfare once again, and many will teach on this subject again from the pulpits of the nation. The church will shine as a light into the dark places of our culture on new levels.

New prayer movements will arise, and their prayers will cause a turning away from casual Christianity.

The church is coming into a new level of maturity. With the teaching on Kingdom, there has been a great acceleration of nations turning to the Lord through the different sectors of society bring reached.

Israel

This is the time for the harvest of the Jews to begin. Bold witness will arise from believers in both the Jewish and Arab sectors.

United States

The Lord is going to use the coming shakings, even from more internal attacks, to wake up people to their need for God. This will come seemingly in waves, subside, and come again.

Christians will boldly start giving testimony of their Christian faith and be very counter-cultural.  More producers will make movies with godly values, and Hollywood will start to lose money on the "dark field" as the appetite of the nation changes.

Even the news media will be affected by righteousness as more and more Christians rise to places of visibility in the coming years.

The United States has been given one more season to turn the nation to righteousness. As will be noted in the section on Europe, there will be an economic shaking that will affect the U.S., but many prayer groups are heeding the warnings. We feel that prayer will be able to greatly lessen what is coming. We believe 2 Chronicles 7:14 can still be applied to the economic structures both personally and nationally.

New lawyers will arise who have God's anointing upon their lives, and they will start to "turn the tide" in our legal system.

Corruption will be exposed on a national level. It will be exposed in the Pentagon and in Congress—in both political parties.

Canada

An increased vigilance to pray for this nation was called for from our midst. Canada is going to be a key missions force to reach those who are in ISIS and radical Islam.

Latin America

Communism will start to lose its grip in Latin America. The people of Latin America will start to shift the trend from hard leftist ideology to more moderate forms of government. 

Europe

Europe will experience a financial shaking, and this will affect the US economy, though not at the level of the 2008 economic meltdown. This may or may not happen in the fall of 2015, depending upon people's prayers, but will eventually happen.

Again supernatural wisdom will be given to those believers who seek God for strategies to get out of debt, and in some cases, break the cycle of debt.

In the midst of this, the re-evangelization of Europe will begin. God is listening to the prayers of those in Europe who are shaken and distressed, and He is preparing to answer.

France

The Latin Americans in France will play a large part in seeing France come into revival. France is going to begin to experience an awakening but it will be in the midst of continued shakings.  There is an admonition for the Houses of Prayer to continue to pray against terrorism from ISIS connected groups.

Spain

We see the same for Spain, with the Latin Americans being used by God for awakening.

Russia

The Russian bear will continue to test it muscles against other nations. Alaska and the Aleutian Islands must be very watchful during this time. The Empire Spirit has been loosed; however, the body of Christ in Russia will once again see a powerful move of God such as was seen after the fall of Communism. Another wave of God's power will sweep the land.

Ukraine

The serious issues with Russia are going to bring a tremendous unity to the church, and many cooperative efforts will take place for mass evangelism.

Japan

God is going to move in a powerful way with new, young Japanese revivalists, and this once-difficult place for evangelism will see a great harvest of souls.

Middle East

ISIS will continue seemingly unchecked for a season, but in contrast, their wickedness will cause openness to the gospel as many, many turn to Christ. Even some of those who left their own countries to seek to join the coalitions will become followers of Jesus and begin to evangelize the Middle East.

Prophets

We ourselves received an admonition from the Holy Spirit to be very intentional to share with great love what we are receiving from the Lord as we prophesy in the coming season of shaking and whirlwinds.

Turnaround Decrees You Can Make

I will enter into rest. So, therefore, I decree healing for all stress-related problems which may include:

Depression
Anxiety
Sleepless Nights
High Blood Pressure
Acid Reflux
Heart Related Issues related to Stress
I will prosper and pay off all debts. In my turnaround year, I will receive the God-given plan to get out of debt.

I will go to new levels in my faith. Poverty will not have any hold on me.


All court cases against me and problems related to business will turn around.

I Send An Alarm Across Washington State and Oregon... Find Your Footing

Chuck D. Pierce, Corinth, TX

"The Ground Will Make a Shift"

"Pray for Washington State and Oregon. I send an alarm from Zion across Washington State and Oregon and I say, 'Wake up and watch, for there is a change coming to your ground and a new, new opening is coming from Heaven, but now the ground will make a shift.

"I say to Tennessee, 'Watch, for this is a time that there will come a movement from the NE portion. You need to watch the movement.'

"I say to, 'New England, you need to awaken now because if you will awaken now I will cause a new generation to rise up in here.'

"I say to Japan, 'This will be a month that you must stand firm because of the shaking... so I say to you.'

"And I say to Africa, 'Get ready'. Algiers, you will be heard from: Let My people go," saith the Lord.

Find Your Way Through the Movement... Find Your Footing

I decree there's a shaking loose of promises that have fallen in the ground. And you're going to be walking this month and all of a sudden you're going to say, "I just stepped into a place of glory that I saw several times back," and then all of a sudden you'll decree a thing and it will happen.

Now I want you to decree. You decree: "I'm coming into my promise." You decree that though the enemy has blocked you, though you have done things you shouldn't have done, this month you are shifting to go up, and you will see a manifestation.

There is going to be a meeting of Heaven and earth. You need to know. You need to find your steps this month.

Hear what I'm your saying to you: Find your steps this month. There is going to be Heaven and earth colliding and shaking around us. Find your footing.

It's not going to be like where it's been, starting now. A new season has blossomed. Find your way through the movement.

God says, "Right now, I have begun a movement. You find your way through it. This is what it looks like. It's not going to be like other seasons."

You will not be controlling how the movement affects you. You'll just have to get in it.

...You get ready. Things will start moving all around you. Some of you are going to move in your jobs. Some of you are going to move where you live. Some of you are going to move in your life. Some of you are going to move in your house. Some of you are going to move in your nation. Things will be sliding and shifting this month, and God says, "Find your footing. Find your footing. Find your footing."

Something has stirred up. What Firstfruits is about is shifting into alignment with God's will in Heaven. Once we do that, let me tell you this month, something is going to shift around you and you are not to get frustrated in all the changes around you, but you will find your footing and you'll be stronger in the latter than you were at the beginning. Let's thank God for that.
