There is a new generation emerging, forming and taking shape. Who is forming or shaping their identity? What is done now will determine the future and the state of the earth (Isaiah 60:1-4). It is important that we engage what is happening and build the future. “It was by faith that Noah built an ark to save his family from the flood. He obeyed God, who warned him about something that had never happened before. By his faith he condemned the rest of the world and was made right in God’s sight(Hebrews 1:11).
This is the season, the command is declared from heaven “build a platform in the heart of this generation and create an environment to advance God’s kingdom.” It is time to shift the operational dynamics and shape the understanding of times and seasons of this generation to enable them function accurately in the midst of the earth crisis.
As the enemy releases his flood of witchcraft, perversion, ungodliness homosexuality, prostitution, drugs abuse, rebellion, corruption, murder, etc; in the midst of all this crisis, God is raising his standard (Isaiah 59:19). He wants to partake with us to shift the operation dimension of our generation and build the future. “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth.”
We have enter the season of structuring our preaching, teaching, healing, deliverance, signs and wonders ministries and moving into the dimension of increase supernatural prophetic, apostolic grace to break strongholds, and build prayer ministries,and bring deliverance. There is a need to make preparation within the new context of God emphasis. Let us learn along the way, identify where we are and be focus and conscious of this process that is taking place.
God is taking the church through a shifting, she needs to understand the voice and actions of God in a brand new way; like Elijah who had to learn that God had shifted from the charismatic dramatic prophetic platform to an apostolic platform of raising new dimensions of operation and leadership. I Kings 19:9-17 (for more insight, read the whole chapter). We have fulfilled the purpose and assignment of the past season, we need to migrate in God. It’s time we build our capacity for the new season, transition to new mentalities, increase faith, and new revelatory position to become effective in the execution of our new assignment. Our strength is obtain from an accurate understanding and accessing of fresh revelation of what God is revealing for this present time. The strength and resources of God is within His Kairos (Ecclesiastes 3:11)
There is a twenty years mandate to take the land, and to shift and shape to the prophetic destiny of our nation (Acts 17:24-28). Within the twenty years, there is a ten years mandate “The Decade of Preparing Laborers for the Harvest.” There are three categories of the harvest that will be addressed in future posts, to inform our prayer focus. We are working within the first five years of our prayer assignment; however, we have already enter the second year of the five years of possessing our God given assigned territories, establishing boundaries and advancing God’s kingdom in the nations (Psalm 2:8; Matt.28:18-20; Acts 1:8).
As the God is ushering us into this twenty years of shifting and shaping; wherever we are, it is important to start tracking God and make the necessary adjustment like Elijah. We should continue to position ourselves to receive instruction and hear the sound of his assignment for 2014, “Raise your platform for kingdom invasion and advancement”, and also his prophetic command, “Engage your spiritual territory to expand your boundaries.” As we watch individually into 2014, let us network to set a Global and National Prophetic watch for 2014 to 2017 and beyond.
Before I close, I want to post these questions for you to consider. In times and seasons, we must be accurately position and align to be activated. What is God’s posture for us? His posture for us as it relates to what He is saying and doing is calibrated by His revelation. In Habakkuk 2:1 after God spoke, Habakkuk took a position because he got a new insight of God’s sovereignty . This shift of God is defining your present posture.
*What has shape your identity as a believer/watchman?
Ponder on these questions and God bless you.
