The Lord has had me writing and preaching A LOT about Amos 9:13-15 (MSG Translation) in this season:
“Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel:
“They’ll rebuild their ruined cities.
They’ll plant vineyards and drink good wine.
They’ll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables.
And I’ll plant them, plant them on their own land.
They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them.”
The Lord is highlighting GREAT CHANGE that’s beginning in the body of Christ. There is going to be SO much change in the lives of believers personally, in ministry structures, there will be major leadership changes, there has been a shaking taking place and it is going to continue to make more and more room for the GREAT CHANGE that He is wanting to bring. It’s going to be GLORIOUS, AMAZING change, but we MUST be surrendered to what He wants to do, what He wants to change and when He wants to change it, to see the EASE and GRACE of the change flood powerfully into our lives, churches and ministries. Some of the changes that are about to take place are really going to require eyes to see and hears to hear, leaning close to His chest to hear His heartbeat, to KNOW Him, because many of these changes many not “make sense” in the natural, but they are leading the people of God into a whole new world of Ephesians 3:20!!! MORE GLORIOUS and SPACIOUS than you could ever imagine!
Last night I had a dream that I was surrounded by dragonfly’s and one landed in my hand and I felt the Lord saying that dragonfly’s represent CHANGE!!!!!! God has been working deeply in the lives of His people now and bringing His people through TRANSITION.
I felt the Lord say that no matter what ‘part of the process’ you are in, whether you are at the dragonfly “nymph stage” under the water, whether you are now starting to emerge as the dragonfly, or whether you are an adult dragonfly flying.. whatever part of the transition, transformation process you are in right now, EMBRACE His CHANGE, embrace His moulding and shaping, for He is BRINGING YOU FORTH FOR MORE!!!!
JUDAH SINGS “SUPER FAST, SUPER FAST, SUPER FAST”
As I am sitting on this word today and getting ready to release it. In the very moment I am pondering this word before the Lord, my 2 year old son Judah gets on his little motorbike and begins singing “SUPER FAST, SUPER FAST, SUPER FAST!!”.
Instantly I felt the presence of God all around me, and I felt the Lord saying that FROM THE PLACE OF “SEATED PRAISE”.. allowing NOTHING to take you from that POSITIONING OF PRAISE, Amos 9:13-15 is about to TAKE OFF. There will be a momentum and acceleration enter into your life that will see you completely overcome the mountains before you, the walls before you will come crashing down, nothing will stop you, because you are not pushing yourself to take ground, but you are being empowered by the winds of the Spirit and the power of God and truth of Amos 9:13-15 to gain GREAT MOMENTUM in moving forward. The enemy is shouting loud because he is losing ground.
THINGS WILL CHANGE SUDDENLY RIGHT BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES
The Lord spoke to me recently as I picked up my phone to check the time and I saw in a split second, the time change. The Lord spoke to me in that moment and said “Things will change SUDDENLY right before the eyes of My people, it will NOT be missed!”
The Lord is going to make these CHANGES LOUD. You will see one thing looking one way in one moment, and you will LITERALLY see it change right before your eyes. He is the One empowering the change, just rest and praise in the waiting of the change.
MY PEOPLE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO GET USED TO A “TIME CHANGE”
I kept hearing the words “My people are going to have to get used a “TIME CHANGE” and I was suddenly surrounded by the sense of when you move into another “time zone” it takes you a while to ‘catch up’ and ‘acclimatise’ and you can get “jet lag”.
I saw Amos 9:13-15 crashing into the lives of believers and bringing such radical changes SUDDENLY. Yet once the breakthrough and change had landed I saw different “time zones” and “speeds”. The land and change He is leading many into may feel completely opposite to what you thought, and it may take you a while to acclimatise but if you look with the eyes of the Spirit and look through His heart of love, you will see that you are actually being positioned in a new land for promotion and increase. His peace will settle you and JOY will fill you as you begin to see the mighty handiwork of a good, good Father.
In this accelerated and change and alignment I saw the body of Christ moving into, as they moved into these changes, full steam ahead, I then saw many once they entered the ‘change’ meeting a ‘pause’. Don’t be afraid of the pause. There is a radical momentum being released into your life to take ground. When I saw Judah on the motorbike and the Lord spoke to me about nothing being able to stop you, it was a victory ride! The ride of triumph! The enemy won’t be able to stop you, you won’t be uprooted by the enemy as you stay close to Jesus.
IF you meet a divine pause in the midst of your accelerated change, DO NOT FREAK OUT! Do NOT PANIC and do NOT become discouraged. Jesus is just adding to you, sharpening you, and extending you to then release you again quickly but WITH MORE and HIGHER than you’ve been before.
THESE ACCELERATED CHANGES WILL RELEASE GREATER ACTIVATIONS AND INSIGHT INTO THE BODY OF CHRIST TO REBUILD CITIES
I watched these accelerated changes taking place and no matter which way Amos 9:13-15 manifested in the lives of believers, a foundational truth was being burnt into the heart of God’s people “When HE shows up, EVERYTHING changes”. I then saw God’s people moving out into these changes and beginning to be activated in greater ways in their giftings, anointings and impartation of His heart for cities, to see cities REBUILT and RESTORED.
These glorious changes are not only for you, and they are not only going to release FLOODS of joy into your life even if they come in packages you don’t expect or even like, stay surrendered to Jesus and His timing. Trust Him.. because He’s leading you into a HUGE promised land and activating you to move into your cities in new and fresh ways and see them rebuilt and restored as you proclaim and see the Spirit of God release the BEAUTIFUL TRUTH.. that “When JESUS SHOWS UP, EVERYTHING CHANGES!!!!”
He’s REALLY about to show up for YOU and your CITY!!!
