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,

How to Stay Steady in the Wind: Divine New Focushttp://dougaddison.com/2014/07/how-to-stay-steady-in-the-wind-divine-new-focus/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/07/how-to-stay-steady-in-the-wind-divine-new-focus/#comments Thu, 17 Jul 2014 12:00:14 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6305 How to Stay Steady in theSailing regatta, during sunset. 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.

 

Blessings,

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,

doug-sig

What Did Jesus Say About Purposehttp://dougaddison.com/2014/07/what-did-jesus-say-about-purpose/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/07/what-did-jesus-say-about-purpose/#comments Thu, 03 Jul 2014 12:00:34 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6302 personal growth - self development concept - isolated text in viWhat Did Jesus Say About Purpose

Doug Addison

No matter what you do in life, what career you pursue, or what you are working towards, your purpose is to grow and mature in all areas of your life: spiritually, emotionally and relationally. Your personal growth must be made a priority.

This concept echoes the message of Jesus in three classic statements He made in the Bible:

  • Jesus said, “Come, follow me…” (Matthew 4:19). You can’t follow Jesus long without bringing some type of change to your life. When we begin to follow Jesus, we are making our personal growth a priority.
  • Jesus also said, “Love God with all your heart and with all your soul… and love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37-39). When we love God, ourselves and others we can’t avoid developing strong godly character.
  • And some of His final words were to “…teach them to do all the things I have told you” (Matthew 28:20 NLV). If you have learned anything in the process of following Jesus, you can help others.

What Did Jesus Say About Purpose? One of the first statements Jesus spoke publicly at the start of His ministry is much more profound than most people realize.

Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men. (Mark 1:17)

He said this to some common, everyday fishermen who later became His disciples and eventually leaders. Jesus was a religious teacher, but notice that He did not say they had to become professional teachers or rabbis to follow Him. God wanted to use them in the way they were created. They were fishermen, and Jesus said that they could become fishers of men.

God wants to use you uniquely in the special way that you were already created. Your purpose and the journey to obtain it will be unique based on your distinctive characteristics and life experiences.

Your purpose, to grow in your spiritual life with God, will take you on some exciting adventures with God. Some will be easy and fun, some more difficult. As we mature, you learn that it is a very worthwhile ride. Enjoy it now.

Blessings,

God Speaks through Dreaming of Teethhttp://dougaddison.com/2014/06/god-speaks-through-dreaming-of-teeth/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/06/god-speaks-through-dreaming-of-teeth/#comments Thu, 26 Jun 2014 12:00:08 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6292 Smiling Tooth MascotGod Speaks through Dreaming of Teeth

One of the most common dreams people have are about teeth, which actually are significant. God is speaking to us through these dreams.

 

I have interpreted thousands and thousands of dreams and one of the most common dreams people ask me about is teeth. Let me explain what this common dream means.

 

Teeth

This type of dream reveals you are in need of direction. Teeth chew food and make it useful for the body. Symbolically, teeth chew the word or teaching of God so it can be digested and made useful through application. Chewing or thinking about something brings deeper understanding. (You are “chewing on” this revelation even as you read.) That’s why teeth coming loose or falling out means you’re in need of direction, wisdom or advice.

 

Here are examples of various teeth dreams.

You bite into some food and your teeth break off. This indicates that there is something that you are having difficulty understanding at the moment.

 

You look in the mirror and suddenly your teeth are falling out. You are lacking wisdom in the area of your self-image or who you are and what you’re called to do.

 

Your incisor teeth come loose or fall out. These are also known as “eye teeth” and symbolically, loose incisors can indicate that you are lacking spiritual vision.

 

Your wisdom teeth come loose or fall out. Obviously, you’re lacking wisdom in some area of your life.

 

Your front teeth come out. This could indicate that you are too busy or “biting off more than you can chew.”

 

Responding

Now that you can understand what dreaming of teeth can mean, the thing that really matters is how you respond. God is trying to point out how to have a positive outcome. Responding in some way will make the dream come alive. In the case of these teeth dreams, pray and ask God to show you what He wants you to understand and pray for wisdom.

 

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5

 

Keep dreaming! It’s God speaking to you to help you on your life’s journey. Enjoy the ride!

 

Blessings,

Doug Addison

How to Transform Your Mindhttp://dougaddison.com/2014/06/how-to-transform-your-mind/ http://dougaddison.com/2014/06/how-to-transform-your-mind/#comments Thu, 19 Jun 2014 12:00:32 +0000 http://dougaddison.com/?p=6254 Think Different Puzzle Shows Thinking Outside The BoxHow to Transform Your Mind

Doug Addison

There are a lot of people telling you that you need to transform your mind or your thinking but few people actually give you some practical steps to do it. Let me share with you some things I have learned on how to practically renew you mind!

 

Did you know that it’s harder to keep asking yourself to not think a thought, but it is easier to give yourself something good to think about instead? It is actually hard to focus on not doing something, but easier to focus on taking a positive action. When we grasp this, we are no longer struggling and beating ourselves up for thinking and doing things that are not good for us.

 

Renewing your mind and developing godly character involves more than trying to avoid sin or bad habits. If you continually focus on what you are not supposed to do, or on the negative thoughts and behaviors, then that is all you will be thinking about all the time. Eventually you will feel guilty for not being able to change. In the New Testament, Peter instructs us to set the focus of our minds on the positive things that are coming as opposed to negative thoughts.

 

Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed. (1 Peter 1:13)

 

Most people are not aware of the fact that our brain is not able to deal with the words like “no” or “do not.” When we are told to not think about something, we cannot help thinking about it. If I tell you right now, “Don’t think of a purple giraffe —don’t do it!” You can’t help thinking of it, because in order to understand what I just said, your brain had to process the command and think of the very thing I told you not to think of.

 

How about a father saying to his daughter who is wearing a new white blouse, “Whatever you do, don’t spill your chocolate milk.” You guessed it. She spilled the milk. She was not even thinking of spilling it until the idea of spilling it was introduced into her mind as a possibility. It would have made more sense for this father to say, “You are doing a great job drinking your milk.” This would encourage her to not spill it.

 

This could be why in the Bible you will read more about what you should do, as opposed to what you should not. Yes, there are some dont’s in there, but you will find more do’s than don’ts.

 

If we are focusing on the negative, we will continually have to deal with negative things. Continual focus on resisting only causes the negative thoughts to persist. Instead, redirect your thoughts to something good, like Peter said, “Think about the grace that will be given to you.” I find this to be much more productive. I get better results in my own life if I focus more on what I should do as opposed to what I should not.

It takes practice to renew your mind and begin to change your character to be more like God’s. Notice that in Galatians 5:22-23 Paul refers to the “fruit of the Spirit” which implies that it does not happen overnight, but there is a growth process involved.

 

This is not positive thinking but instead, it is thinking positively about yourself. So start to notice how you tend to think. What are your thoughts saying to you? Are the negative or positive? Find ways to turn around your thought life and you will indeed transform your mind.

 

Blessings,

doug-sig

Hope, success, new life andProphetic Word: A New Door Has Opened
Doug Addison
June 11, 2014

A door opened in the spiritual realm
I released a prophetic word in May about sudden changes coming and the Wind of Change angel. During the weekend of May 30, a new door opened in the spiritual realm that is going to usher in a new season of radical changes for the good.

We had two earthquakes in Southern California and I not only felt both of them, God spoke to me during the shaking.
The first one was on Friday May 30, a 3.8 that was centered in San Pedro (Saint Peter, the rock). I heard the Holy Spirit say to “prepare for something new.” It occurred at 8 PM and 8 represents new beginnings. God is going to “rock” things and radical change is on the way.

I felt compelled to “prepare” so I bought some earthquake preparedness items. On Sunday, June 1 just before 8 PM and just as I was installing earthquake straps on our new television, another earthquake rocked the Los Angeles area. These were very mild earthquakes and there was no damage. It was a prophetic sign of something new coming. This is not a judgment word. The first earthquake was 3.8 and the second one happened as I was strapping down my “tell-a-vision”. This is symbolic that God is bringing new visions and a new foundation for the way to bring these new visions into reality.

Because the earthquakes both initially registered 3.8, I was drawn to Revelation 3:8 that says:

“I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.”

Doors represent new opportunities and seasons. New strength and spiritual authority is coming to those who are weak and have been holding on to prophetic words and promises. The new door has opened and we can expect to see things pick up. I want to share a few things I have learned about responding to something of this magnitude.

Things often looks opposite
As God is on the move and opening news doors, keep in mind that things quite often look like the opposite just before a breakthrough. I keep mentioning this to people because it is crucial to understand this right now. As God is releasing something new in your life don’t be surprised if the enemy comes and tries to distract you. A mesmerizing type of spirit is working overtime to get you to look at your problems and not solutions. Old thoughts and behaviors may have recently surfaced and during a time we should be excited, we end up feeling discouraged!

We have to be careful that we don’t come into agreement with the attack of the enemy.

“Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. Matthew 18:18–19 NIV

Here’s some good news: stay the course and you will break through the fog. June gloom will lift and July through September will have a different feel and spiritual freedom will come.

Limits are being removed
God is limitless so what you can do through His love, power, and strength has no limits as well! You have access to everything you need to succeed. You have peace with God, the power that raised Jesus from the dead is in you, you have the Holy Spirit and God’s network of angels. You God’s word and promises and you have friends and people who love you and can pray with you! Yes, you have lot’s of resources so be sure to utilize them.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 NKJV

“ … but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 NIV

The outcasts are coming! The outcasts are coming!
I have been talking for a number of years about a move of God coming on those who have been outcast from Christianity. There is a group being held in reserve right now that will do things in the Spirit that will be astounding. Currently they don’t fit in and they don’t realize who they are just yet. Many of them seem hopeless. Some have grown up in church but got wounded and are drifting in life. Most of them feel deep inside there is something more for them to accomplish on Earth but they don’t know what it is.

A few years ago God showed me that this group and this new movement coming is similar to Isaiah 44:

“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. Some will say, ‘I belong to the LORD’ others will call themselves by the name of Jacob; still others will write on their hand, ‘The LORD’s,’ and will take the name Israel.” Isaiah 44:3–5

There’s a commitment level coming on a generation of people who have been living in a dry time. They will soon come on the scene and have an amazing commitment to the Lord. My entire ministry and life calling is to help these individuals who are “spiritual outcasts.” They are already starting to rise up. They are not really in a particular age bracket but they are the best of the best being saved to come on the scene at the right time. What God is doing right now is starting outside of church buildings and it may look strange at first to those who don’t have spiritual “eyes to see” as Jesus said.

If you know someone who fits the outcast description, maybe your children, grandchildren, or someone you love is seriously adrift, here’s a promise from God to you for them:

This is what the Lord says: “Restrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for your work will be rewarded,” declares the Lord. “They will return from the land of the enemy. So there is hope for your descendants,” declares the Lord. “Your children will return to their own land.” Jeremiah 31:16–17 NIV

The new is here! Expect to continue to see things happen at an accelerated pace. We are moving into a time that we can accomplish more with less effort. Keys for this new time are to stay at peace and let go of doubt and fear. Ask God to show you what you should focus on specifically for this time.

This is an amazing time to be alive!

Blessings,
