“Truly I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall have been loosed in heaven.” – Matthew 18:18
I had an encounter with Jesus recently and I saw Him placing a mantle upon many prophets in this season to “UNLOCK”. This was a significant shift that was taking place over many prophets, such an increase of prophetic anointing, vision and mantle that was going to bring radical increase of “unlockings” all across the body of Christ and the world.
The Lord was not only releasing these new mantles He was handing out new keys. As I looked at these keys, I knew straight away that these keys were not given lightly. These keys were weighty. These keys carried greater anointing and authority to bring about a great ‘unlocking’. I was surrounded by the sense of deep preparation that these prophets have gone through to carry these keys and to receive this mantle. These prophets have been deep in the fire and found Jesus. They have been in the darkness of battle and hit on every side but remained faithful to Jesus in obedience and anchored upon His Word. They have learned to live by every Word that flows from the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4) rather than any other reality. They have committed to a life of chasing after His heart, and releasing in purity and obedience that which He is speaking. They have learnt to not live by man’s agenda or approval but by the agenda and approval of God. There is a deep place of humility that these prophets have found in their recognition of His awe and wonder – they have seen the King of Glory and are not moving in any realm of self-promotion or striving, but the deep place of beauty and intimacy of ministering to Him alone.
These prophets have been through incredible battles lately. The Lord showed me that many of these prophets have been battling such intense warfare and darkness behind closed doors, but have refused to move from what He has said, and cling to Him tighter than ever. They have been facing battles with the enemy, where he is attempting to keep them from what God is unlocking in their lives, but they have found a place of victory even before they see the physical manifestation of breakthrough. They have found a deeper place of victory in the Word of God and what the Lord is speaking. What the enemy meant for their harm, He is turning for their good. The Lord showed me the vision and discernment of these prophets is sky-rocketing and the enemy doesn’t like it. The Lord is using the very tactics and lies of the enemy to teach these prophets greater strategies to unlock, overcome and see these tactics for what they are – lies and smoke screens and mirrors. The Lord is turning the very tactics of the enemy, upon him by not only releasing major vindication, favour and the justice of God upon their lives, but radical increase and double portions being added to them, and taking them to a higher level of heavenly strategy to overcome. The Lord showed me many of these prophets have been in what feels like a ‘boxing match’ with the enemy screaming and throwing punches and even though they feel the effect of the lies of the enemy, they were not harmed by the ‘punches’. The Lord was showing these prophets the “empty threats” of the enemy and leading them into a greater season of unlocking of revelation of the Word of God. The season upon these prophets is actually one of greater increase, favour, anointing and breakthrough and the enemy was fighting that hard, trying to keep them “locked” in fear and captivity to lies and circumstances, but the rhema
Word of God was bringing the breaker to release a great unlocking of blessing and increase in their lives.
THE MANTLES HAVE BEEN PLACED AND KEYS GIVEN TO RELEASE MONUMENTAL UNLOCKING IN THE BODY OF CHRIST, CITIES AND NATIONS
In all they have endured and are enduring the Lord has been working deeply, even amongst the enemies tactics and attacks, to prepare these prophets in greater strength, humility and strategy to carry these new mantles and keys.
The Lord showed me that the prophetic utterance, the decrees, the revelation that is being released upon these prophets now is going to release monumental unlocking in the body of Christ, cities and nations. The Lord showed me that such deep revelation is being given to these ones from the Word and flowing from His heart, that they are partnering with the Holy Spirit to UNLOCK what has been “held” or “locked” for such a time as this.
Specific breakthrough, revelation, alignments, blessings and outpourings of God that have been held for this season by the hand of the Lord.
These mantles and keys were engraved with Amos 3:7:
“Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.”
Such significant increase of revelation of the plans of God are now being released to His servants the prophets, that have been held for this new era, for this new season, and the Lord is having them now decree and release prophetic decrees/words that are carrying such increased anointing and power to UNLOCK that will herald and bring forth some of the greatest moves of the Spirit of God in the body of Christ and the world.
The Lord showed me that many of these prophetic words and keys of strategy of His heart to unlock, are carrying a SUDDENLY anointing. Some of these prophetic words that are being released and will be released through the prophets will bring SUDDEN shifts. There will be visible signs and wonders in the natural of the “UNLOCKING” that has suddenly taken place. There is going to be an even greater demonstration of the power of the voice of God, the Word of God to unlock as the prophetic decree of God goes forth. Signs and wonders will follow these words, the favour of the Lord will drench these prophetic words and bring forth the plans of God SUDDENLY into the body of Christ and in the earth.
Some of these prophetic words are going to bring a shaking, a shaking to man’s agenda and a shaking to anything that is not rooted in what God is building and break off any other agenda but the agenda of His heart, but these prophetic words being sent forth like fire tipped arrows from His heart, are going to break through, prepare and make way for the King of Glory to step in… in His way. Some of these prophetic words are going to bring forth the manifestation of a great rearranging, but it is for increase, it is for His Glory to come, it is to carry the harvest, it is for the extension of the Kingdom, but man’s agenda cannot take precedence over the plans of God. Even in the shaking there will be such a glorious demonstration of His power, His perfect way, His heart and His Glory! The King of Glory stepping in, in power!
UNLOCKING OF WHAT THE ENEMY HAS HELD CAPTIVE
The Lord showed me that these prophets would be releasing prophetic words and decrees that will bring a great “unlocking” of what the enemy has stolen and held captive. What the enemy thought he could lock away from God’s people through his thieving. This is the season where that is being given back and more. (Proverbs 6:31) This is a season of gathering the spoils and gathering the plunder. There has been great warfare for many where the enemy has continued to attack and bring delay, but the Lord is releasing His decrees that are bringing forth a great unlocking, and it is an unlocking of acceleration and increase.
There is going to be an increase in prophetic revelation and decree through the prophets operating in this “unlocking mantle” that is going to activate a greater tipping point shift of restoration, repayment and recompense. There has been incredible battle for many of these prophets in their own lives over the restoration, repayment and recompense but the shift is taking place right now, where these prophets are gathering their spoils and increase in greater ways and will be releasing greater prophetic revelation from the heart of God and His Word that will activate a breaker anointing to UNLOCK what has been held back by the enemy in the body of Christ.
PROPHETS WITH THE EYES OF EAGLES AND OWLS UNLOCKING TREASURES IN CITIES AND NATIONS
I also saw an increase of the “unlocking mantle” upon the prophets and I saw the prophets that had eyes like EAGLES and OWLS. They had the EYES of higher hindsight and insight and also had a significant increase in eyes to see in the dark, and see the strategy of the enemy and call it forth to bring it to naught even before the enemy has a chance to bring it forth, like Elisha who heard the plans of the King in his bedroom. (2 Kings 6:12)
The enemy has come against the vision of the prophets strongly, bringing a haze, or confusion, a foreboding, a fear, and twisting of what is really happening in the spirit through his smoke and mirror lies and deception. That is why it is crucial right now that the prophets are deep in the Word as well as the body of Christ. The Lord is exposing the lies, bringing truth and lifting His people to a higher reality – His reality – what He speaks.
I saw the Lord in visions and dreams taking these prophets above cities and nations of the world and they were carrying the keys the Lord had given them. I saw their eyes burning on fire, the fire of His presence, the fire of His sight, the fire of His sense of love, and they were looking with the eyes of EAGLES and the eyes of OWLS. They were uncovering the plans of the enemy and UNLOCKING the strategy of God through prophetic decrees and intercession and I watched as the TREASURE OF THE CITIES were being unlocked. The things the enemy and his demonic forces were guarding and trying to keep God’s people from seeing or releasing, the Lord was uncovering and releasing such significant revelation, that as they decreed the TREASURE of God placed within the cities and nations, there was a great UNLOCKING in the natural that was taking place. Not only were places guarded and taken by the enemy for such a long time, being unlocked and his ground being lost, but suddenly I heard the Lord say “THE SONGS OF CITIES AND NATIONS ARE BEING RESTORED.”
They were the SONGS that the Lord has sung over the city, over the nation that the enemy has worked so hard to hide and cover with static, lies, darkness and evil, suddenly through these prophets and their decree of what they see through His eyes and heart of love, the SONGS OF DESTINY that he has placed within them, His dreams, were suddenly being sung LOUDER than ever.
Many wells, treasures and heavenly portals will be opened up over cities and nations in greater ways in this season through many prophets operating in the greater increase of these “mantles to unlock” and keys given to them by the Lord.
PROPHETS OF GOD, GUARD WHAT THE LORD HAS GIVEN YOU WITH WISDOM
I felt as this increase is taking place and as the “mantle to unlock” is increasing, I felt a warning from the Lord for these prophets. I felt the Lord’s heart to encourage these ones to guard what the Lord has given you and what He gives you (revelation, insight, favour, opportunity etc) with great wisdom. It is imperative in this increase and this new realm of “unlocking” to be using the wisdom and discernment of God. To be continually asking the Holy Spirit for wisdom in sight, release, stewardship and guarding the revelation that He is giving. To not rush, but rest, seek, ask, knock, inquire of the Lord in the stewardship of the revelation He is releasing. For the unlocking is going to come in different wants to what some expect.”Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.” – Matthew 7:6
I felt strongly that the Lord wants to increase the wisdom upon the prophets to steward the revelation that He is giving. The Lord will be releasing such significant insight and secrets of His heart to bring about this great unlocking, it must be steward with wisdom, released in the right avenues and shared in the right ways.
“And if anyone longs to be wise, ask God for wisdom and He will give it!” – James 1:5 (The Passion Translation)
I AM UNLOCKING TO BRING FORTH INCREASE AND MY JUSTICE
I heard the Lord say:
“I am unlocking to bring forth increase and My justice!”
The prophetic words and decrees through these prophets in this season is to release the Lord’s heart and manifestation of INCREASE and to bring forth the justice of God.
“Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him! People of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you.” – Isaiah 30:18-19
“When the justice of God is served, the lovers of God celebrate and rejoice; but the wicked begin to panic.” – Proverbs 21:15 (The Passion Translation)
This great shift that will be released through many prophets in this season carrying the “unlocking mantle” and the keys that Jesus gave them, will not only see the Lord release significant increase upon the body of Christ, cities and nations, but also their own lives.
I saw the Lord tipping the scales and He is bringing forth His justice in many ways for the people of God and the prophets right now. There is going to be great joy in the unlocking and great joy in the justice of God being demonstrated.
To those that will carry these mantles and keys, do not give up! Continue to stand your ground and hold His hand, for He is moving you into a greater realm of insight, revelation and clarity to partner with Him to see a mighty UNLOCKING take place in significant ways through the prophetic words He gives you to release. You’re going higher!
