August 22, 2014 – updated August 24

Doug Addison

I have been getting so much revelation these days as God is preparing for a radical shift coming in September.

Losses result in actual gain

I have been having dreams of people who possess callings and mantles from God will begin to die. I seldom release these types of prophetic words because even if I tell people not to worry, many people start freaking out with fear. My intention is not to bring fear but to understand what is happening right now.

God spoke to me last month that the losses we see right now will bring new life.

“Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.” John 12:24 NIV

Expect to see some very positive changes come from all the tragedy happening right now around the earth.

 

Don’t back down

This month I released my prophetic article “Restoration of Lost Inheritances.” When God showed me the ancient doors and heavenly gates from Psalm 24:7, I saw what looked like a scene out of the Indiana Jones movies. Whenever Indiana Jones was about to recover a lost treasure, there were always obstacles that he had to overcome. Don’t be intimidated!

This happened to me this month while in Pittsburgh, PA. I went into a swirl of spiritual warfare, anxiety and waves of disillusionment. At the same time, I threw out my hip and could not walk. I live out prophetic words and I have stuff coming at me all the time. But while I am in the midst of it, I don’t always fully understand it.

I reached out to people to pray for me but it went on for several days. Then on Tuesday, I woke up from a dream in which an angel was telling me that this spiritual attack was part of the prophetic word I had released and breakthrough was here. All the anxiety, attack and pain lifted instantly.

As these ancient, Heavenly doors and gates start to open, expect the enemy to come against you. Don’t be scared of them. As you move forward, you will get your breakthrough as well!

I wanted to clarify that God is not causing any of the tragedies we are seeing right now. But often, the natural occurrences will prophesy about what is happening in the supernatural.

 

Prophetic signs are being given everywhere

Watch for prophetic signs in the news. Events happening right now indicate new things God is doing.

 

Lightning strike on Venice Beach

As terrible as it is for people to die or be lost, some of the events we are seeing are prophetic. On July 27 I heard God say “watch for prophetic signs because I’m speaking.” Just one hour later there was a very rare lightning strike on Venice Beach, CA, just a mile and a half from our home.

It caught everybody by surprise. God is releasing something new that will surprise many.

“The voice of the Lord strikes with flashes of lightning.” Psalm 29:7

 

Sunset Blvd.

Another sign happened a few days later a mile and a half in the opposite direction from our home. A water main broke on Sunset Boulevard. The pipe was from 1921.

Water represents the spirit and shows that God is releasing a powerful move in the spirit. The old paradigm will not hold the new spiritual movement that God is bringing.

 

Prophetic sign in San Francisco

A huge colony of Velella Velella washed up on the shore of San Francisco. They are blue sea creatures but it is very rare to have them come this time of year. Marine biologist said they had not seen this in eight years.

Blue represents the prophetic. Water represents the spirit and eight is new beginnings. God is doing something new in the San Francisco Bay area.

6.0 Earthquake the 24th near Napa

I am adding this to this article on August 24. Napa California gets a 6.0 earthquake on the 24th Funny that I am not an earthquake or disaster prophet but I am a seer that understands the symbolism behind events. This confirms the two prophetic words I released this month: Prophetic Signs Not Judgement and Restoration of Lost Inheritances from Psalm 24:7.

New wine is flowing. During the earthquake many of the wine barrels over turned in the Napa Valley wineries. This is a huge prophetic sign that God is releasing New Wine!

The earthquake happened on the 24th and is 6, Psalm 24:6. We are in a time that God is shaking open the generational inheritances. We need to seek Him to get a strategy. This is a prophetic sign not a judgment again San Francisco.

 

Malaysia airline 777

People have been asking me about the prophetic significance of the tragic plane crash of Malaysia Airline 777 flight 17 on 7/17. First of all, our prayers of comfort go out to all the families.

As I was praying (before I looked anything up on the internet), I heard God say that there was something of significance that took place 17 years ago, which was 1997. God is bringing back some promises and things that started in 1997.

Seven represents completion and 17 in this case is complete victory over the enemy. God is bringing something new that will soon be seen. The enemy is trying to shoot it down or stop it from happening but we will have victory!

I will be releasing more on this soon. I have to find my hand-written, paper journals from 1997 and do some more prayer and research.

 

Gifts are shifting

In early July, I noticed that I was struggling sometimes when I went to prophesy over people. It was taking more effort than usual. This kept happening when I tried to use my prophetic gift the way I am used to using it for the past few years which is to “open my mouth and let it flow.”

Whenever things take more effort, it can be a sign God is shifting things to a new level and we need to make adjustments. Most people are not aware of this and when the shift happens, they stay at a previous level and never grow or advance.

Since I journal daily, I noticed when it happened and asked God for a solution. I made some adjustments and found that my prophetic gifts are now operating at a different level, but I have to use them differently.

Our gifts are shifting upward right now. This is not just prophetic gifts… but all our gifts. If things are not flowing or working like they used to, then ask God to show you what the shift is for you.

After I made the shift, I was turning on my iPad to listen to worship music on internet radio.Whenever I first turn on the internet radio, there is always a video commercial before the first song. I heard God say, “this commercial is going to be a prophetic word for you.”

A sudden flash came on my screen and it said, “Shift into a higher gear and use caffeine if necessary…”

I laughed! This was a confirmation. God is shifting our gifts. He wants to accelerate us and it will take a concerted effort on our part.

 

New authority

I have been having a lot of flying dreams over the past month. In one dream I was trying to fly but having trouble, but I was given a white walking stick. Immediately I flew high and had new authority to do things in the spiritual realm. This is not just for me. We are all being given new authority to rise above our situations right now.

We are seeing prophetic signs almost daily. It is fun to catch them. You are being called to a new level and God is increasing your authority. Don’t get distracted with the storm that comes just before!

I keep hearing people talk about God judging the U.S. and the world but that is not what I am hearing from the Holy Spirit. This is a misinterpretation of the current events. Yes, it is a difficult time but the result is going to reveal God’s glory even more!

Blessings,

Need to Hear God for Major Decisions?http://dougaddison.com/2014/08/need-to-hear-god-for-major-decisions/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/08/need-to-hear-god-for-major-decisions/#comments Thu, 14 Aug 2014 12:00:57 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6173 Decision Computer Key Representing Uncertainty And Making DecisiNeed to Hear God for Major Decisions?

Doug Addison

Hearing the voice of God changes your life forever. But how do you know when you are hearing God when it’s a big decision?

 

It is dangerous to make a major move or change jobs on just one dream or vague impression from God. Sometimes, people won’t do anything at all because they’re afraid of making mistakes or doing something in their own strength.

 

There is a balance when hearing God – it takes time and practice to hear clearly and consistently.

 

Unfortunately, when you can’t figure out what God is saying, it costs you valuable time and heartache. Let me give you some powerful pointers I’ve learned over the years that will help you.

 

Open door

A mistake Christians make in trying to hear God for guidance in decisions is by using the “open door” strategy. People pray that God will close all doors of opportunity except the one they should go through.

 

This works sometimes. But it doesn’t always happen that way with God. Why? Because God wants us to become mature in our decision-making. He will give us choices to train us. It’s like the way an earthly father helps his children. As a parent, you can’t make decisions for your kids all their life, or they never grow up. A better way to pray is that God will give you the wisdom to know which opportunity or door to take.

 

Fleece technique

Another way Christians try to know what God’s will is by using the “fleece technique” from Judges 6. Here Gideon asked God for a sign that God was with him. Gideon put a fleece of wool on the ground and asked God to confirm what he should do by making the fleece wet from dew and the ground dry overnight. Sure enough, the next morning he found it wet while the ground dry. So Gideon knew God had answered him.

 

It is possible for God to answer these types of prayers: “God, if it is your desire for me to do this, then make this happen…” Again, God wants us to become mature in our decision-making. Eventually God may not answer one of these prayers, and you will need to rely on other means to determine His will.

 

Peace

I found that since the Holy Spirit is now in us, unlike in Gideon’s day, we now can know God’s will by the amount of peace we have. God’s will always comes with His peace. Peace is the best fleece!

 

If you have a major decision to make, be sure to get confirmation in several forms. Also, the greater the risk or cost of the decision, the more you will want to hear God clearly with peace. If you are stuck and afraid of making a mistake, realize that fear is not from God but you will still want to breakthrough.

Doug Addison

August 2014

 

Go with the flow

August is the start of something new, as the eighth month represents new beginnings this year. This is the start of the full turnaround from past years. We will begin to see promises and inheritances that were previously cut off or lost start to come back.

Watch for full a turnaround in some areas of your life. Restoration of lost or forgotten callings and revelation will continue to emerge. Creative inspiration, writing, music, and ideas are starting to flow this month.

Be sure to take time to record and write while the flow is there. When the flow comes, don’t assume you will be able to capture it later. Be intentional and take time, even if it is inconvenient.

 

New season of new revelation

This is the start of a new season. The drought we have been experiencing over the last few years in the Kingdom is now over.

Expect an increase in your spiritual gifts, dreams, visions, supernatural encounters and your finances. This will open an opportunity for you to step up to a new level and see results for your efforts.

 

Opening of ancient doors

As I was praying I got new revelation when I heard God say, “I am moving and speaking 24/7, but people are waiting for the right moment to act on it.” This is the time to take some practical steps and you will discover something new.

I heard God say that Psalm 24:7 is happening right now.

“Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.” Psalm 24:7 NIV

There is an “ancient door” being opened right now over us. Look for renewed things to come as a result. God is opening a gateway into the Heavenly realm in 2014 for deeper revelation and greater power.

Ancient doors and gates are callings and gifts that have been given to your ancestral or generational line. These represent inheritances that God intended for you and your family but were stopped or delayed for a number of reasons. But they are coming now!

 

Don’t be intimidated

When God showed me the ancient doors and heavenly gates from Psalm 24:7, I saw what looked like a scene out of the Indiana Jones movies. Whenever Indiana Jones was about to recover a lost treasure, there were always obstacles that he had to overcome.

As these ancient, Heavenly doors and gates start to open, it will expose some cobwebs (old thinking), spiders (demonic distraction) and creepy crawlers that have collected around the doors. Don’t be scared of them. As you move forward, God is there to get you through.

 

Restoration of David-style of music

Here’s an example of how God wants to restore ancient callings and how the enemy will try to intimate you. In July I had a prophetic dream where I was interacting with a man named David to help restore forgotten callings and anointings for new music. He was showing me some musical instruments that combined several styles of music, both old and new to bring a new sound.

Suddenly, a giant yellow rattlesnake came in and lunged for me. Out of nowhere, an angel appeared, dressed like a security guard. The angel caught the snake in midair, ripping its head off just before it got to me. Expect God to be there as you move to restore these new things.

 

Restoration of geographic inheritances

The restoration of inheritances and callings is not just personal but also regional.

I had a number of dreams and encounters where God was restoring the original calling over certain geographical locations. Many of these places had something significant happen there in the past but it has since subsided.

This is not limited to the ones I will mention because it is happening all over the world right now. I saw places like: Moravian Falls, North Carolina; Saint Petersburg, Florida; Orange Beach, Florida; Chicago, Illinois; Birmingham, Alabama; Sedona, Arizona; Las Vegas, Nevada; Nashville, Tennessee; Boston, Massachusetts, many parts of Southern California including Los Angeles and Orange County.

I saw locations lighting up once again. I heard God say thatit is important that intercessors begin to pray in agreement with Heaven to reopen these ancient gates.

 

A cowboy comes home

I had a prophetic dream where I was standing in one of the geographic places where God is restoring the original calling. It looked like Moravian Falls, North Carolina. A man dressed like a cowboy came walking in with a milk cow. The cow had a blue blanket over it.

The cowboy was singing a song to the Lord, “You are my blanket and I love you … ”

He sang it to the country tune “Blue Eyes Cryin’ in the Rain.” As he sang this song, it activated something in the spiritual realm and the area came alive.

The blue blanket represents the prophetic covering and calling over places like Moravian Falls, North Carolina and others. The cow refers to new provision and revelation from God.

 

New music is to activate

The new music that is coming is meant to be sung over these recovered lost inheritances. It will activate things in your life.

 

Dream of the new music

I had a dream that I was in a house with some people who were in a band. We all had discovered a new sound of music. It still sounded like the music we are used to, but there was something special from God by the way it was arranged and the words.

When the new music was played in the house, the new sound drew in a lot of unusual people including many younger people. The presence of God filled the house and angelic encounters started happening. It was a party atmosphere with lots of joy flowing.

In the dream, the owner of the house came home but he was not okay with what was going on in his house. He was wearing a suit and tie while everyone else was casual. He was not happy with what was going on, even though it was from God.

God is bringing a new sound right now that is not limited to just music. It will change things so that more people can experience Him in a new way. Don’t be surprised if not everyone receives it.

Watch for the ancient doors to open. Watch for new revelation. Let’s all pray that God releases something new and restores what was misplaced or lost.

Blessings,

Can’t figure out your dream from a symbols list?http://dougaddison.com/2014/08/cant-figure-out-your-dream-from-a-symbols-list/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/08/cant-figure-out-your-dream-from-a-symbols-list/#comments Thu, 07 Aug 2014 12:00:07 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6375 Question MarkCan’t figure out your dream from a symbols list?

Doug Addison

I’ve trained thousands of people how to interpret dreams and notice that people sometimes run into difficulty interpreting their dreams, especially when there isn’t a symbol in the common dream symbols lists. Here’s what I’ve done to help people along: look at what Jesus did and apply it to your life.

 

So what if we see a symbol that is not in the Bible?

Probably one of the most commonly asked questions I get is: “Where is that in the Bible?” When we do not see a symbol clearly defined in the Bible, you can use the process that Jesus did in Mark, Chapter 8. The context of this story is that Jesus and His disciples had just fed 4,000 people miraculously with a few fish and a small amount of bread. And afterwards they had seven basketfuls of bread left over.

 

Then He left them, got back into the boat, and crossed to the other side. The disciples had forgotten to bring bread, except for one loaf they had with them in the boat. “Be careful,” Jesus warned them. “Watch out for the yeast of the Pharisees and that of Herod.” They discussed this with one another and said, “It is because we have no bread.” Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked them: “Why are you talking about having no bread? Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened? Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear?” (Mark 8:13–18)

 

When Jesus said, “Watch out for the yeast of the Pharisees …, ” his disciples immediately thought He was speaking literally so they answered, “Is it because we have no bread?” At that point, Jesus told them that they must have eyes to see and ears to hear. What He was referring to was that they must develop symbolic understanding of things.

 

Let’s break it down more and pretend that this was a dream

Yeast goes into bread, and since the Pharisees were teachers, it is safe to say that the bread represented their teaching. Their teaching was like nourishment or spiritual food. But there was something else in their bread or teaching. Symbolically, yeast causes things to rise or puff up. So the hidden meaning of this small parable was to be careful because the teaching of the Pharisees causes pride. A lesson we can learn is to resist the urge to think literally when things in dreams are often symbolic.Develop symbolic understanding.

 

Think symbolically

It is interesting that this incident was not even listed as a parable among the commentaries. In fact, none of the commentaries even mention that this was a spiritual lesson on how to develop the ability to think symbolically and understand these hidden messages that God is sending. The Holy Spirit revealed this to me one day when I was reading this section from Mark. And I realized that it is a key to teach people how to understand symbols that we do not see clearly defined. If we do not see a sample clearly defined, then we can do what Jesus suggested and “think like yeast.”

 

Your dream life is an exciting place to hear from God and it’s fun to figure out what dreams mean. Learn to have “eyes that see” a symbol’s meaning as you work out the interpretations. Have fun with it!

 

Happy dreaming!

 

Blessings,

What Do Baby and Pregnancy Dreams Mean?http://dougaddison.com/2014/07/what-do-baby-and-pregnancy-dreams-mean/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/07/what-do-baby-and-pregnancy-dreams-mean/#comments Thu, 31 Jul 2014 12:00:25 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6371 Yawning sleeping baby in funny hat with dream cloud for image orWhat Do Baby and Pregnancy Dreams Mean?

As a dream interpretation expert and trainer, I have seen thousands of baby and pregnancy dreams. These are common for dreamers and I’d like to explain what God is saying to you through these dreams.

 

Baby or pregnant

Both men and women can have this type of dream. Most of the time it is not a literal dream but symbolic. It’s God talking about birthing something new into your life. It could be a new job, a gift, an anointing, ministry, creativity, or even a clever invention.

 

Here are a few examples of baby or pregnancy dreams:

  • There is more than one baby involved, such as twins or triplets. This indicates that the new thing coming will be of greater magnitude: double, triple or even quadruple.

 

  • The baby newly born is soon walking or has a full head of hair and teeth. This is showing that the new thing coming to you will mature and happen quickly.

 

  • The baby is not alive or needs to be resuscitated. This is showing you that there is something that God is trying to do through you but it is being stopped or needs help to get it going again.

 

  • Someone gives you a baby or you find one. This indicates that a gift or something new that has been neglected or let go is coming into your hands.

 

  • Your daughter is pregnant (she’s unmarried). The fact that she is not married yet is irrelevant. Your daughter has something new coming into her life.

 

God is creative and loves to do new things for His children. If you are having baby or pregnancy dreams, pay attention to the new thing in your life. God is encouraging you in it.

 

Happy dreaming!

 

Blessings,

What You Focus on Mattershttp://dougaddison.com/2014/07/what-you-focus-on-matters/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/07/what-you-focus-on-matters/#comments Thu, 24 Jul 2014 12:00:19 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6323 FocusWhat You Focus on Matters

Doug Addison

How you view a situation is vital. If you continually focus on what is wrong or the reasons why you can’t do something, you eventually convince yourself that you can’t change the situation, whether it is based on fact or not. There is a spiritual principle that what you focus on continually eventually comes to you.

 

If you search for good, you will find favor; but if you search for evil, it will find you! (Proverbs 11:27 NLT)

 

We can create self-fulfilling prophecies about ourselves and our situation based on what we focus on. You may not be seeking evil intent, but this verse in Proverbs shows that you get what you search for or put your energy into. If you continually think that you are a failure, then you probably fail often, at least in your own mind.

 

We can derail our destiny by focusing on negative things. We also can get weighed down with emotional baggage that we may not know is there. For instance, if you have a large amount of debt and you are continually thinking about how bad being in debt feels, most likely you will carry the stress of the situation with you through your entire life. It is like a weight around your neck and can bring shame and even hopelessness.

 

A solution is to decide right now that you will put a debt reduction plan in place and get on with life. Place the feelings of failure and shame in God’s hands, and begin to put your thoughts and energy into finding creative ways to earn additional money. Have fun in the process and you will have instant change!

 

Have you ever thought someone did something wrong to you? Did you get angry and hurt only to find out when you talked to the person that they had no bad intentions at all? What happened to your hurt and anger? It went away immediately because you were no longer focused on it, and you got a new perspective. We can train ourselves to get a new perspective on everything that happens to us.

 

Learning to change your perspective is a step toward renewing your mind as mentioned in Romans 12:2 (“…be transformed by the renewing of your mind”). We can choose to focus on good things, and if we do this regularly, our outlook on life will change dramatically. We will begin to see the positive in the midst of difficulty.

 

Where your focus goes, your energy flows.

 

Decide ahead of time what you are going to focus on. With just a small amount of effort, you can learn to turn bad situations into good ones. You can learn to make the most of every situation. It is not worth getting upset! Some people say life is too short to be upset or angry. I have always thought that life is too long to do it as well.

 

Enjoy life by focusing on all the good!

 

Blessings,

doug-sig

Wind: Divine New Focus

Doug Addison

When I received an angelic visitation in 1991, God spoke to me about a radical change coming in the area of marriages, relationships, ministries and business partnerships. During my spiritual encounter I was directed to look in the Bible at 1 Corinthians chapter seven which deals with marriage and related issues. One area of this chapter that stood out was verses 29–31.

 

What I mean, brothers, is that the time is short. From now on those who have wives should live as if they had none; those who mourn, as if they did not; those who are happy, as if they were not; those who buy something, as if it were not theirs to keep; those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them. For this world in its present form is passing away. (1 Corinthians 7:29–31 NIV)

 

The Apostle Paul writes, “since the time is short.” At first sight most people would think that he was referring to the second coming of Christ and that we need to be prepared. A deeper look at the actual Greek text reveals that “since the time is short” is translated from the Greek word sunestalmenos, which is a common word used in sailing. It means to furl or contract a sail in order to withstand high winds and remain stable. Furling prevents a boat from capsizing or damaging the sails.

 

Another way to look at this verse is in the context of the entire chapter as it pertains to marriage where Paul is encouraging us to narrow our focus to prevent shipwreck. Narrowing our focus means to not get distracted from the things that God calls us to accomplish. Another way to look at it is being single-minded.

 

God spoke to me specifically about these three verses and correlated them with a coming move of the Holy Spirit on the Earth. A time is coming when things will not look as they normally do. For instance, Paul writes about men having a wife and living as though they had none. This does not mean that we live as if we are single, but rather that we are able to serve God together without getting entangled in the worries of life.

 

Mourn as if you are not mourning, be happy as if you are not happy, buy things and not worry about owning them. This all sounds a bit contradictory but it actually means that the way things are usually done will radically change. In other words, the way we normally experience life will soon change and God is calling us to focus on His plan and purpose for our lives.

 

As this new focus comes, many Christians will become much more effective in their ministries and businesses during this time.

 

May you be encouraged as you become more and more focused on God’s goals. This is an exciting time to respond to what God is doing on the Earth.

Zombie and Vampire Crazehttp://dougaddison.com/2014/07/zombie-and-vampire-craze/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/07/zombie-and-vampire-craze/#comments Thu, 10 Jul 2014 12:00:03 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6319 Freaky Cartoon Zombie Walking

Zombie and Vampire Craze

Doug Addison

Are you wondering what has gotten into these kids? Have you noticed a serious interest with zombies and vampires in this generation (not limited to any age)? For a number of years, I have been interpreting dreams and tattoos, using symbolic understanding based on the Bible. We can apply the same symbolic method to zombies and vampires.

I meet so many people who are drawn to zombies and vampires. At first glance, you would think that they’re just into evil things, but the more I interact with people, God has been showing me prophetic insight into this. Bear with me on this and let’s pretend it was a dream.

 

Zombie

A zombie would represent someone who is dead but yet still living. I believe people drawn to zombies don’t necessarily realize it, but there’s a good chance that they may not understand their destiny, so they feel dead inside. They may feel like there’s more to life. They’re barely alive but feel dead.

 

Vampire

Similarly, this generation believes that vampires cannot die since they are eternal. But most vampires on television and in movies are not really happy people. They actually want to die but can’t. Plus, they cannot see themselves in the mirror. This is symbolic of people who do not know who they are or what they are called to do. They lack vision for themselves. I’m not saying that people who watch zombie and vampire movies are bad people. I believe that there’s an entire generation of people walking around who don’t know what they’re called to do in life. I’ve seen many who match these descriptions, and unfortunately some are hopeless and some even want to die, but most would not go as far as killing themselves. So they live life feeling dead inside.

 

Using symbolism and flipping the negative, let’s apply it here. The zombie and vampire craze is a prophetic sign of an entire generation that soon will find themselves. These people are highly creative and very gifted. Many of them are bored with their current churches or situations and are looking for a challenge. They’re not looking for something to live for; they are looking for a cause that they would die for. This is powerful!

 

And just like in the movies, symbolically there is a coming “zombie apocalypse” in which “the undead” will suddenly come out of the graves in masses. I believe we are going to see this happen. Suddenly, people who have not had vision for their lives or know what they want will begin to get it. It will happen in the masses.

 

God is bringing new hope to those people who have been unable to live fully engaged and connected to Him.

 

This may help you look at them differently now and see that there is a divine opportunity to build bridges to show them life.

 

Blessings,

Prophetic Word: Prepare to Fly in Julyhttp://dougaddison.com/2014/07/prophetic-word-prepare-to-fly-in-july/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/07/prophetic-word-prepare-to-fly-in-july/#comments Mon, 07 Jul 2014 09:00:25 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6477 FlyProphetic Word: Prepare to Fly in July

Doug Addison

July 7, 2014

 

Breaking free from past failures and patterns is happening now. Prepare to accelerate and break free from things that have weighed you down. A positive, new “spiritual independence” is here! Unclear vision, discouragement, depression and even suicidal thoughts will fall away starting this month. These were attacks of the enemy to distract you from what God is releasing starting this month.

 

Get ready to fly in July!

As discouragement and doubt begin to break off, you have the opportunity to accelerate this month into a new season. The spiritual climate is changing and new creative resources are being released from Heaven for you right now. But you have to grab hold of it.

 

Wind from Heaven dream

I released a prophetic word about the Sudden Changes two months ago. Many people are responding to this word and are agreeing that things are changing around them quickly.

Throughout June I had several prophetic dreams including another dream about a new spiritual wind coming from Heaven. Instead of blowing things over, it lifted things and people up to new levels. People were enabled to fly higher than before. But most were not aware of it.

This is being released right now into your situation. You can chose to “rise above” things. When you do, you are going to catch a new wind from Heaven.

 

Deep blue ocean dream

I had a very brilliantly colored dream in which I was swimming in a deep ocean and came upon a forgotten city at the bottom of the sea. There were treasures and buildings like the city was still in use.

In the middle of the city there was a sunken whale. The prophetic representation is that people have been like Jonah. They have a powerful prophetic calling but ran and got swallowed by a whale. Now many abandoned prophetic callings are being brought back for others to fulfill. These are deep callings from God.

The result of the Wind from Heaven and these deep callings will be a new breathe of the Holy Spirit into the deepening of your relationship with God.

 Whether we are high above the sky or in the deepest ocean, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39 (New Living Translation)

You will be bonded with the Lord and the plans of the enemy will no longer negatively affect you.

 

Shift in spiritual atmosphere

I have had several dreams about the spiritual atmosphere shifting or changing. In the dreams I noticed that things had shifted but again not everyone was aware of it. You can expect this to start this month and continue. In my dreams not everyone was aware or even tried to use this new anointing coming right now. In fact many people doubted and argued that it was not from God. Many who did receive it were people who were desperate and actively searching for God.

 

Rebirthing lost revelation

In addition, God is going to reveal to you revelation that you may have forgotten. These are prophetic words that may not have come about. They will start resurfacing once again. This also applies to larger prophetic promises over churches, cities, businesses and government.

 

July 7-14th

July 7 through July 14 will be significant. Expect to see something shift or change as God is bringing a fresh new insight and revelation. July is the turning point for the rest of the year.

God spoke to me that this is similar to Matthew 7:7-14 where Jesus said….

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8

Start asking for more!

“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! Matthew 7:9-11

Start expecting more!

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 7:12

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14

July 7-14 is a time to press in to God. Ask. Seek. And Knock. Expect God to answer with good things, and watch for your higher calling to open to you. It might be in the form of a narrow gate.

 

False diagnosis

There are some cases of false diagnosis happening right now. This is not to say that every diagnosis is false but if you have received bad news about your health or your situation, it is time to battle for total healing. I have been talking about getting a healing strategy and often it might be radical.

It is really important for you to take radical steps to see radical results. Jesus seldom prayed the same way more than once. He laid hands, commanded, had people leave the room, fasted, spit and made mud. So to get radically healed, we need a radical strategy from God.

 

Grace has a baby

I had a dream that my friend Grace had a baby. I knew the dream was about her and also others like her. Babies represent new things being released in the spiritual realm. God is releasing a new level of grace to offset the bad experiences from over-controlling, legalistic religious spirits.

 

Healing of closed wombs

As a prophetic sign to you that God is doing something new, those who have been trying to get pregnant will begin to conceive. These special children are going to be part of this next movement of God. If this has been your situation, grab hold of the anointing that is available now for this new change.

 

Relocation confirmation

There are many people about to relocate. This may or may not apply to you but God spoke to me that He is releasing confirmations right now to give you what you need to move.

 

So, get ready to fly and go deep into an even closer relationship with God. There is an opportunity to grab hold of God’s creative resources because the spiritual climate right now is changing. I’m right there with you, praying for you. Enjoy the ride!

 

Blessings,
