Doug Addison

Ever wonder why God lines you up with certain people and not others? God is strategic when aligning people’s gifts and callings. The power of two extends to strategic business relationships.

There is power in combining the calling and resources of two unique people. Check out where Isaiah 11:2 gives a description of several aspects of the Spirit of the Lord:

  • The Spirit of wisdom and understanding
  • The Spirit of counsel and power
  • The Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord

Notice they are mentioned in pairs. By strategically pairing gifts and callings, God will take the effectiveness of your calling and increase it dramatically.

Godly designed matches

Husbands and wives can be a vitally important, specifically designed match to promote a key area of impact in God’s Kingdom.

This can mean that one spouse may take on a supportive role, enabling the other spouse to have a higher impact. Other marriages operate as a team. In Luke 10:1, Jesus sent out seventy-two of His disciples to minister, purposefully sending them in teams of two.

Making sacrifices and providing stability so that another person may serve God is super powerful. Not all ministry couples share the role of being in front of crowds.

My story

My wife, Linda, provides emotional support that I lacked for years. With her, I am now able to fulfill my higher calling. Although she is not up front ministering with me, she brings wisdom. I tend to operate in understanding the bigger picture of how things fit together. She has counsel and I operate in power (remember Isaiah 11:2 above?). There are many other areas where we complement each other’s gifts.

My challenge to you:

  1. Take a look at your own unique gifts, talents and desires.
  2. Now look at the people or businesses God’s surrounded you with right now.
  3. Where has God placed you to be matched up with the right people to increase your depth of knowledge, relationships, anointing?

God is increasing your power within this wonderfully crafted combination of you and another. Flow with God’s grace in it.

Another happily-ever-after God story

I know a man in ministry who became a widower a few years ago. God brought a woman to him who is much younger than he. She had been divorced years ago and was waiting for God to bring a new marriage to her. Their marriage was a strategically paired Divine Alliance. As they came together, their marriage was for the purposes of ministry and expanding God’s Kingdom. She is an intercessor, getting words of knowledge, while he has a prophetic gift. They minister together. As he teaches, she gets words of knowledge for ministering to people and for his writing.

Not all marriages will function this way, but there will be a dramatic increase in ones like this over the next few years.

Prophetic Word: Prepare for Sudden Impacthttp://dougaddison.com/2014/09/prophetic-word-prepare-for-sudden-impact/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/09/prophetic-word-prepare-for-sudden-impact/#comments Mon, 15 Sep 2014 01:00:08 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6783 Prepare for Sudden ImpactProphetic Word: Prepare for Sudden Impact

Doug Addison

September 14, 2014

 

Get ready for a sudden impact with destiny. God is moving in a greater way in your life throughout September and October. This is a time of promotion and expansion. Things God has stored up for you are being released now and the end result will be greater authority!

 

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

The Jewish New Year, called Rosh Hashanah, falls on September 24–26 this year. Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement, is October 3–4 and is considered one of the most holy Jewish holidays. Even though we are no longer under the Law of Moses, God still operates on the Jewish calendar.

Historically, Jewish people believe that God examines our lives during the time between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur to see if we are ready for spiritual advancement or promotion to a new level of maturity. Whether you are aware of it or not, this is a time that you are able to hear God more clearly and gain direction.

 

God spoke to me that we will see a breakthrough during this time of September 24 through October 4.

What should we expect? Here are a few things to expect to happen over the next few months and into the new year:

  • Greater authority in prayer and with your words
  • Reconciliation of broken relationships and restoration of hope
  • Continuing rediscovery of lost inheritances and prophetic promises
  • Shocking turnarounds, as we brace for sudden impact!

 

Realignment that will bring new assessments

Expect to see movement, job changes and physical moves in some cases. God is realigning you for your new assignment coming. This does not mean that you have to move but you will see God’s movement in your life.

 

Prophetic sign: Arthur Burt dies

I wrote in my August 22nd blog that I have been having dreams where people who possess callings and mantles from God will begin to die. Arthur Burt was a revivalist in the U.K. and was given a powerful prophetic word from God in 1934 entitled: “And There Shall Be No Ebb.”

Arthur died August 28, 2014 at 102 years old. Bob Jones had prophesied that Arthur would see his 1934 prophecy come to pass in his lifetime. This is the year of the release of Arthur Burt’s life-long prophetic word and Bob Jones’s word of one billion people coming into the Kingdom. Both of these great men went back to Heaven this year.

The prophetic sign in Arthur’s death: he died at age 102 on 8/28. Psalm 102 is the cry to God to see Him move again. But 102:28 is a prophetic word for what is coming.

“The children of your servants will live in your presence; their descendants will be established before you.” Psalm 102:28 NIV

“And there shall be no ebb” 1934 prophetic word from Arthur Burt:

“It shall come as a breath …

And the breath shall bring the wind …

And the wind shall bring the rain.

And there shall be floods and floods and floods …

And torrents and torrents and torrents.

Souls shall be saved like falling leaves from mighty oaks swept by a hurricane.

Arms and legs shall come down from heaven …

… And there shall be no ebb.”

Just like Bob Jones’ prophecy that one billion young people will come–it is our descendants. Jesus said in John 12:24 that a seed must die and fall to the ground in order to produce many seeds. Watch for new revival strategies to come.

 

The prophetic word I released in November 2012

When you release as many prophetic words as I do, the downside is that people don’t remember them all. Here’s one of the more powerful words I have ever released. I have been talking about it over and over for the past few years.

On November 7, 2012 I received a visitation from the Holy Spirit and was shown God’s strategic plan that will unfold over the next four years.

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 NIV

This is what the Lord says: “My ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts are not your thoughts. I am making a way and lining things up right now in this next season for a movement that is greater than any on earth. For I am calling the outcasts, the prodigals, the tattooed, pierced, the New Age, gay and lesbian and all the people and groups that have been rejected by my Church. I am calling them into my Kingdom and I will reveal myself to them.”

As the 44th President is taking office for another four years (from 2012 until 2016) it will be a prophetic sign of the fulfillment of many prophetic promises happening right now including Isaiah 44:4. God is moving on people who have been wounded by Christianity and we will see the beginning of a new movement happen.

“For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants. They will spring up like grass in a meadow, like poplar trees by flowing streams.” Isaiah 44:3–4 NIV

We are in four years of repayment 

The Lord spoke to me, “Over the next four years (through 2016) I am going to do things that will surprise many people on the earth and set up an amazing movement and gathering in Jerusalem in 2017.”

God is going to raise up groups of unknown people to move in His power. Those who are not blinded with pride to think their doctrines and beliefs are the only way. God is moving on those who are not prejudiced against political parties, race, and people groups. God is resisting those who are blinded by spiritual and political pride.

 

Pride and Prejudice

Arthur Burt’s prophetic words talked a lot about the fact that God has been trying to move on the earth but the Church is in so much pride of their own beliefs that there is no room for the God of the unexpected.

What is holding back the next move of God right now is this: “We must repent of the pride and prejudice spirit against people that are different from us. This includes the New Age, gay, lesbian, certain political parties, and the tattooed and pierced to name a few.

 

The 29-year connection

In a dream last month I was taken back and shown the years 1929 and 1958. An angel showed me revelation that has been sealed away. 1929 was the crash of the stock market and the launch of the great depression. Then 29 years later in 1958 came an economic recession. 29 years later in 1987 the stock market crashed again!

29 years from 1987 will be 2016. God is releasing strategies right now for financial blessing. There is a blessing coming! The strategies for 2016 (part of the prophetic word I mentioned above) have been hidden but are now being revealed.

Also God is moving on 3 groups right now from 3 generations

Those born in 1929 and 1958 and those who are 29 years old this year or born in 1985. Both of these groups are going to experience a repayment and are carrying wisdom we need right now.

 

Ohio and Texas

I had a powerful dream that I was shown a map of the U.S. and the state of Ohio was placed at the most northern part of the state of Texas. In the dream I was flying out of Ohio that later became Texas and the two were joined as one.

Suddenly I was seeing an aerial view of the two states and Dallas (DFW) airport could be seen from outer space. God is taking things that you thought you had missed and bringing it back. God is doing something new in both of these states. Watch for unity to come and particularly something new in Dallas.

 

I realize this a long article, but I wanted to fit it all in. Revelation and wisdom is flowing from Heaven right now in the midst of times of turmoil and adversity.

With all the uncertainty, it is time to stand firm and do not be afraid! Watch for a rain of reconciliation, a wave of healing and a wind of change.

 

Blessings,

doug-sig

How to Get Your Children into Their Destinyhttp://dougaddison.com/2014/09/children-our-destiny/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/09/children-our-destiny/#comments Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:00:00 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6430 Children silhouettes holding hands up

How to Get Your Children into Their Destiny

Doug Addison

Did you know your destiny involves your children? For those who have children, we can get so focused on our own careers and spiritual lives that we may not realize that our children are our ultimate destiny.

With the right coaching and guidance, they can achieve much more than we could ever accomplish in our own lives. Grandparents, you grasp this easily.

I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants. They will spring up like grass in a meadow, like poplar trees by flowing streams. Isaiah 44:3–4

A very powerful kingdom strategy is to help our children fulfill their own destiny.

Sadly, the statistics show that the majority of children who grow up going to church never return after they move from their parent’s home. This should be alarming to us and cause us to make a concerted effort to find out where we are going wrong.

Why are our children not interested in church? I believe that this young generation has such a high destiny and calling from God that they will experience opposition. Most kids who leave church don’t really have a problem with Jesus but somehow were not able to make the connection with their parents’ God.

This generation is looking for something very real. They must believe in what they do with all their hearts or they are not interested. Most Sunday schools and youth groups are not providing the connection and challenge they need.

Music and expression of who they are plays a big role in young people’s culture. They want to be understood and viewed as unique so they have special ring tones on their cell phones, particular songs on their Facebook pages, expressive photos on Instagram, significant tattoos and uncommon piercings.

The best way to help our children is to listen to them. Ask them specific questions about how they feel. Ask them to describe a type of church that they would like to attend. Help identify things that they are good at. These talents are often clues about their destiny.

Do their friends open up and share their problems with them a lot? Then they probably have a strong gift of counsel. Do they give freely to people in need? Then they may have a gift of compassion. Are they strongly opinionated and seem to buck the system? Most likely they are a leader in the making.

Years ago, my daughter was having difficulty deciding what she wanted to do with her life. I wanted her to pursue a higher vocation than she was in because of her intellect. She is smart, witty and has a lot to give. I started to point out the things that I noticed she is good at. I helped her to recognize her strengths and helped her see the God-given gifts within her. I also agreed to help her in any way I could and let her know that I would support and bless her in whatever field she decided to pursue. Within a short period of time, she began to get a clearer picture of what she likes and wants to do and it was more suited to her intellectual level.

Our children are our destiny! It helps to see that they are not only the future generation, but that our children can contribute now and we can help them.

How are you going to help them find new hope and purpose today? Pick just one small thing and watch it impact them like:

  • Learn to speak their language – what’s the new lingo?
  • Value their music – what’s their favorite tune?
  • Talk about their problems
  • Listen when they tell you stuff (even the most insignificant – if they are talking, it’s important to them) – just to name a few things we can try.

Enjoy watching their destiny unfold before you.

Blessings,

doug-sig

Adding It Up – What Do Numbers Mean in Dreams?http://dougaddison.com/2014/09/adding-it-up-what-do-numbers-mean-in-dreams/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/09/adding-it-up-what-do-numbers-mean-in-dreams/#comments Thu, 04 Sep 2014 12:00:23 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6435 Math EdAdding It Up – What Do Numbers Mean in Dreams?

Doug Addison

I’ve done thorough studies of dreams, visions and the symbolism found in the Bible. Once we understand God’s hidden symbolic language, an entirely new world opens up for us. We will not only see messages in the dreams that we have at night; we will also be able to hear God speaking to us in unlimited ways: on television, in the movies, street signs, names and even numbers. The key to understanding dreams is using a combination of symbolic understanding and the ability to hear God’s voice.

 

Numbers

When interpreting dreams, I put less emphasis on the meaning of numbers than I used to when I first started out. One of the reasons is because there are so many conflicting dream symbol meanings for numbers. I believe that God gives us revelation into the meaning of symbols, but we have to be careful that we are not applying them globally to every single dream we have.

 

Repeating numbers

My wife and I pay attention to repeating numbers all the time. Eleven can represent transition and when we see it, we know that we’re about to transition into an entirely new season of our lives. Maybe you see numbers line up on the clock like 2:22, 3:33, etc. It could be the meaning of the actual number or symbolic that things are about to line up for you. The only way to know for sure is to record it, watch for it and ask God for confirmation.

 

Although numbers in dreams are important, they are more useful in the application than the interpretation. If you can take out any symbol of the dream and the dream does not change, then it’s best not to focus on it.

 

I have listed some very basic meanings of colors and numbers just as a starting point.

 

Numbers

1                      single

2                      double

3                      trinity, God

4                      creativity, worldwide impact

5                      grace

6                      man’s efforts

7                      completion, perfection

8                      new beginnings

9                      fruit of the spirit and gifts, judgment

10                    rules, law

11                    transition

12                    leadership, government

13                    rebellion

14                    establishment

16                    high level of grace

18                    provision, judgment

21                    jackpot

24                    leadership, government

50                    jubilee, reconciliation, freedom

Take a look at any corresponding Bible verses for numbers you have in your dreams. For example, if you see the number 24 you might want to take a look at several chapter 24’s in the Bible. I recommend doing an internet search. You can find out more about dream interpretation training and books by CLICKING HERE.

Happy dreaming!

Design a Great Life Todayhttp://dougaddison.com/2014/08/design-a-great-life-today/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/08/design-a-great-life-today/#comments Thu, 28 Aug 2014 12:00:17 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6423 design your life - self development concept - isolated text in lDesign a Great Life Today

Doug Addison

Depending on your personality style, you are either drawn to the idea of life planning, or it makes you feel restricted. We are all wired differently so I like to think of the process in a more creative light, like designing your life instead of planning. Planning sounds like it is set in stone, whereas designing is more organic and allows you to be creative as you go.

 

Consider what Jesus says about planning in Luke 14:28: Counting the cost is the same as creating a plan. “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Will he not first sit down and estimate the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it?”

 

In Matthew 25:14-30, Jesus tells a parable of a landowner who gave one man approximately $5,000, another $2,000, and another guy he gave $1,000. The ones who received $2,000 and $5,000 were able to double their money by taking some steps to put it to work. But the man who was given $1,000 buried it in the ground and did nothing to increase his money. The owner was not happy with the man who did nothing. That parable was given to us to show that we are all given gifts and talents from God “according to our abilities,” and He really wants us to use them.

 

Unfortunately, some people don’t see the value of improving themselves because they don’t see the direct link between their life condition and God’s gifts and destiny in life. You are God’s divine creation. What you do daily will build into your life’s foundation. Like the parable of the landowner, you can take what God has given you and invest it into yourself and others. Most people don’t do anything at all and that results in building a life of avoidance, uncertainty and fear.

Imagine the possibilities if Christians began using the God-given biblical principles we have been discussing. Many people would find their destiny and improve their lives through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. Churches would find creative ways to fund ministry projects, families would be strengthened, our children would step into their destinies at a young age, and we could all become, once again, the greatest example of God’s power on earth.

 

You can design your life today. It is a matter of choice in your everyday decisions and being purposeful, partnering with God. What can you do today to invest in others and yourself?

 

Enjoy your creatively designed life!

 

Blessings,

doug-sig

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 need to hear God for major decisions- blogNeed 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.

Prophetic Word: Restoration of Lost Inheritanceshttp://dougaddison.com/2014/08/prophetic-word-restoration-of-lost-inheritances/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/08/prophetic-word-restoration-of-lost-inheritances/#comments Wed, 13 Aug 2014 08:00:27 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6657 Prophetic Word: Restoration of Lost Inheritances

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,
