This is a season where there are many surprise twists and turns in the road. This is the season of the unexpected. This is the season of divine surprises and this is the season where the Lord is breaking us out of boxes we have put ourselves in and boxes we have placed Him in.
This is the season of Isaiah 22:22:
"I will give him the key to the house of David–the highest position in the royal court. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them."
This is a time to really trust where He is leading and trust the doors that He is closing and opening in this season, for He is leading His people into something completely NEW. (Isaiah 43:19)
I saw many of God's people grieving, heavy hearted and perplexed over some closed doors. Not understanding why the door suddenly closed that was once open, or doors that they felt the Lord leading them to not open.
He is developing in His people deeper dependence in Him and His good plans that He has for them. He is not closing doors to bring disappointment or to bring heartache, but to lead His people to something BIGGER and BETTER.
I heard the Lord say "Those doors that you have closed, those doors that have not opened, these are the SECOND BEST doors. They are the doors that are not the BEST for you. I am about to open a DOOR to you that is My best for you that is going to exceed your wildest dreams, expectations and hopes. In these doors opening you will see more doors open, greater favour, greater provision and increase that would have been released to you in the door you were hoping would open, or door that closed. Do not be disheartened My people, these doors are turning to springboards to lead you into MORE than you could ever imagine."
Instantly I saw doors that were dripping in anointing! They were dripping in the anointing of the Holy Spirit and there was a HUGE mantle over the doors. When I looked at the mantle closer I saw it said "MANTLE OF JOSEPH".
I felt the Lord then saying "I am releasing My people right now in this season through unexpected doors and surprise doors that are going to see them carrying a mantle like the mantle of Joseph. Between the door that closed and these doors opening has been a PIT for many. In that place I have prepared them, shaped them, built their character and taught them greater integrity. Now I open doors before them that will see them positioned in greater favour. In the lessons they have learnt in perseverence and stewardship, and sensitivity to My Spirit and leading they will now see all they put their hands to where My Spirit is leading turn to gold. They will brought before people of great influence, and kings and queens to see radical breakthrough and My Glory released in ways they could never have imagined. I am about to do MORE through them in these new doors than has EVER been done through them in the doors they have walked through in their lives UP UNTIL this point."
Doors are about to open in the lives of God's people that have embraced the fire and stewarded their process in purity, propelling them into a level of favour, promotion, increase, responsibility and influence carrying a mantle like the mantle of Joseph.
These doors are going to reveal to God's people just how big His plans are for you and His heart to see people, cities, nations and the world changed by His love, His power and His Glory.
Many of you are about to move into and further into the governmental and business arenas to see radical fire of His love released and encounters with Jesus happening all through these areas. You are being positioned right now in a place you could never get yourself. You are about to stand before kings and queens of this world, people of influence, and they will be drawn to your light and brightness (Isaiah 60:3), the light of Jesus and you shall deliver the prophetic word in season for their life that will bring radical transformation.
JOSEPH AND ESTHER'S ARE MOVING FORWARD AND JOINING TOGETHER
The Josephs and the Esthers are moving forward and joining together in positioning to see a SIGNIFICANT move of the Spirit before people of influence and greater favour to bring city and nation wide shifts.
Where 'changes' have bewildered many of you, the Lord is going to USE YOU to bring UNEXPECTED SURPRISING GLORIOUS CHANGE BY HIS POWER AND GLORY into places of great influence and the most unexpected places.
You have been prepared, for such a time as this!
