A Sudden Good Break by Doug Addison

A Sudden Good Break by Doug Addison

Doug Addison
We will see a lot of positive changes this year, as 2013 marks the beginning of an entirely new way to function. God is releasing unlimited potential for those who are ready to move forward.
Sudden Good Breaks
“Unrelenting disappointment leaves you heartsick, but a sudden good break can turn life around.” Proverbs 13:12 MSG
Get ready for “sudden good breaks” and the end of a season of disappointments. This is a time of “suddenness” and quick radical turnarounds. It will require changing the way we think and taking action.
Clean out the old ways and make room for the new. Don’t be surprised if you begin to see a new way to do what you do. Stepping back from your situation will help.
Prophetic Word
“You have sought me and now act on what I am telling you. Trust your spiritual instincts.” This is a time in which you will hear clamoring around you. But listen deep inside to the Holy Spirit speaking to you. This is a time to learn as you go, and you have to enter the race to win! Take practical steps and listen to peace in your heart.
“… but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 NIV
Joseph Anointing Increasing
This year we will see many people who have a “Joseph anointing” begin to come on the scene. This is similar to the Jewish patriarch Joseph (Genesis 37-41) who interpreted Pharaoh’s dreams and gave prophetic words that set up a huge financial blessing and far-reaching provision during a famine. These “Joseph people” (men and women) will release prophetic insight and financial blessing into the Kingdom of God.
In 2007 God spoke to me that we were entering into a new seven-year season. Similar to the life of Joseph, people who are called to move in this new anointing from God will go through rejection and turmoil. In 2012 the “Joseph people” started coming alive and began to be released from their prisons of rejection and being forgotten. In 2013 they will begin to rise up in various areas of influence in society.
First Quarter Prophetic Forecast
·        January – Watch for subtle changes in how you think. God is drawing us to a new level of “all things are possible for those who believe” mentality. He is revealing areas where we limit not only ourselves but also God’s power from flowing through us.
·       February – This is a time to take action and move toward new things that God is revealing. Some old prophetic promises and dreams are now being updated. God will show you what is for now, what is for later and what is no longer valid. Watch as fogginess, wilderness and spiritual winter times begin to diminish. New strength and drive will come to you.
·       March – This will be when things start to spring into action with what God is revealing and calling you to. Take practical steps and stay steady. It will benefit you to create a plan of action “as faith without works is dead.” James 2:20 (NKJV)
Fear and Cursing
Two dark forces of fear and cursing have come against people. These two demonic attacks will only lose their grip as we rise above with the opposite spirit from God. As we trust God instead of being fearful and bless people instead cursing them, we will see a great turnaround in our own lives and the lives of people around us.
Unforgiveness Towards Leaders
I had a prophetic dream last month that people are cursing leaders who struggle with addictions. Here’s the dream:
I was standing next to a beautiful large body of water and the atmosphere suddenly changed so you could see all the fish underneath. A group of people was on a small bridge praying and worshiping. As I got closer, I could hear them praying a prayer that turned into a worship song …the song rhymed, “leaders with addictions, have nothing to do with them.”
I knew they had been wounded by the shortcomings of pastors and leaders. There was smoke or some fragrance from their prayer song but as I walked through, it smelled foul. They thought they were doing the right thing by standing up for justice, but God’s heart is for restoration of these struggling leaders. They did not realize they were actually cursing. But as they prayed, you could no longer see deep into the water and the heavens began to close.
I got this prophetic word regarding the dream: the next move of God depends on all of us and it is important to pray, blessing people who struggle. Remember when a woman was caught in adultery Jesus said, “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” (John 8:7) Jesus is saying that now. It is time to give up our grievances against those who have hurt us. We don’t have to agree with what they did but forgiveness will open the heavens over our life.
Dream: I Can List
I had a dream last month that I had so many things to do and I was feeling overwhelmed. I cried out to God saying “I can’t!” God spoke to me in the dream that I must create an “I CAN” list. So I have written down a new list of what I can do with God.  It is exciting!
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2 (NIV)
This is a time to transform our thinking to line up with God’s unlimited power!  I can and so can you!
I am excited for God’s direction this year and am looking forward to see how our lives will be changed with unlimited thinking!  My prayer is that we would see where we are limiting ourselves and God so that we can take strong steps with a plan of action.

Watching for my sudden good break!

2013 Prophetic Insights by Matt Sorger

2013 Prophetic Insights by Matt Sorger

Matt Sorger
As I waited upon God going into 2013 I received these words from the Lord. Some came in the form of impressions, others came as visions and some came as scriptures that God was breathing on for this season. Prophetic words are an invitation from the Lord. I sense these following 13 prophetic insights are to be decrees that we aggressively pursue for 2013. They are invitations for use to lay hold of.
1.    Stagnant waters will be stirred in a fresh way. I saw pools of Bethesda stirring again and a fresh healing stir being released. God wants His people to lay hold of the divine healing anointing in a fresh way this year. I saw deep seated, lingering disorders being healed, even down to the chromosome level. I saw stubborn areas within the soul and flesh being healed that people have battled with for years. In John 5:2-5, 9 Christ performs a healing on the Sabbath. Jesus never did anything by chance or accident. He was very purposeful in His intention. God is calling His people to access His healing and power from a place of rest. The Sabbath is more than just a day of rest. It’s a spiritual position of rest. In Christ we enter into the Sabbath. We receive because of the finished work Christ has done on the cross. Rather than begging God for what He has already done, we are simply to step in and receive the finished work. A new level and substance of faith is coming into the heart to receive the finished work. God is highlighting the spirit of faith and understanding the finished work of Christ. Living from the Sabbath position will be crucial in obtaining all God has for us.
2.    A prophetic ear will be given to not only hear but to also listen and comprehend. This hearing will also occur from a position of rest in His presence. A key scripture is 1Sam 3:3,10. In a time of no widespread revelation and where the eyes of the high priest Eli were growing dim, the light was still burning in the temple near the ark. As Samuel rested before the ark in the presence of God, the voice of God speaks to him. After several times of hearing, but not understanding, Samuel is instructed by Eli to say, “Speak Lord for your servant is listening.” There is a big difference between hearing and listening. God is refining the prophetic ear and the prophetic movement. He is calling His prophets and His people to come into a place of rest in His presence in the light of revelation. From that place the voice of God will speak. Not only will His voice be heard, but it will be listened to and comprehended. A new clarity of hearing and perceiving God’s voice is coming. It will not be by self-effort or striving. It will be from resting in His presence. Not by might, not by power, but by the Spirit of the Lord.
3.    New language will be given by God to properly and clearly communicate truths God is highlighting and speaking. For example, the term “soaking” was not used until the outpouring of God’s Spirit in the 90’s. This term helped explain the concept of being filled with God’s presence. New language will be given by the Spirit to more deeply and clearly understand truths God is bringing forth of spiritual realities.
4.    God is giving the blueprints for the new wineskin God is forming. In Josh 3:3-6 the people were to follow the ark into a way they have never gone before. As we follow the moving of the presence of God He will lead us by His Spirit into places we have never gone before. The walk of sanctification will be vital in preparation for the wonders God will do. God is saying to be ready to pull the tent pegs up. When the cloud of His presence moves we need to move with Him. We have to be willing to fold up old structures and ways of doing things in order to stay current and fresh with God.  God’s marching orders will be given. There will be new alignments and relational structures to facilitate the move of God.
5.    We will not continue to do things the same way. The cloud of God is moving and with that our activities will shift. Our focuses will shift. Some old structures will have to adapt and morph with the new way God is moving. There will be fresh Spirit-led activity. God doesn’t want us to be busy. He wants us to be fruitful. Forms, structures and even activities we have done in the past may shift as God moves in new ways. Be prepared to let go of some things and to embrace and step into some new things you haven’t done before. It will be vital to go where the Spirit is breathing. Don’t hold onto something God isn’t breathing on any longer. Be fruitful by moving and being led by the Spirit.
6.    God will be highlighting and deepening within His people an understanding of the true identity of the believer. Revelation of how to live out of union with God will come forth. We will understand our oneness with God and live out of our inner spirit man. For those who are one with God are one spirit with Him. 1Cor 6:17,19
7.    God is going to bring revelation into foundational spiritual truths. Things we thought we knew and understood, God is going to have us look again and He is going to give us deeper revelation and understanding into things we thought we knew for years. Look back upon foundational truths and new light and revelation will be shone upon them bringing the manifestation of true spiritual realities.
8.    The understanding of spiritual warfare is shifting. We are moving from “warfare” breakthrough to a “decreeing and establishing” breakthrough. This will occur with a deeper revelation of who and where we are. Rather than fighting into the second heaven from being under, we will rule and reign from the third heaven being over. I understand that we wrestle not with flesh and blood (Eph 6:12) and that even Jesus experience personal warfare when He was tempted by the devil and overcame by the spoken word of God. But this warfare will not be fought to obtain victory, but will be fought from a place of victory. Christians will live from a third heaven reality understanding how to establish on earth as it is in heaven. A new perspective, a new revelation and with it a new manifestation of Kingdom authority will be released. God is bringing people into a new level of spiritual authority. Eph 2:5-6 is a key scripture. The church will shift from an Old Testament model of spiritual warfare (Dan 10:13) into a New Testament revelation of establishing what has already been won (Col 2:15).
9.    This is the season of the fulfillment of dreams. Many are being brought from a time where the word of the Lord tested them. The second dream to Joseph was highlighted to me in Gen 37:9-11. In it Joseph sees eleven stars and the sun and the moon bowing down to him, speaking of his promotion into a position of authority and influence. Eleven plus two is 13, the number of this year. People are going to step into the manifestation of unfulfilled dreams. The warfare of the last season is being washed away and a new heavenly perspective is being granted. Just as Joseph’s betrayal and trial maneuvered him into his assignment and destiny, so will the trials and testings in our lives propel us into our destinies. Key scriptures are Gen 37:9, Gen 45:5-8, Psalm 105:17-24.
10. God is delivering people from burdens. But it’s not just the removal of burdens. As Psalm 81:6-7 says, He will remove our shoulder from the burden and bring deliverance. This is different than the burden being removed from us. It’s us being removed from under the burden. Get ready for divine shifting that will maneuver you out from underneath burdens into a place of deliverance. In other words, situations or people may stay the same, but you will be maneuvered out from underneath them. It’s a season of deliverance for those who call on the name of the Lord. Psalm 81:6-7 shows 10 promises accompanying this deliverance. These include financial provision, divine health, fear of the Lord on the enemy, the covering of His presence, light in the darkness, food, dry places refreshed, joy, lands and nations, and reaping where haven’t labored. Lay hold of these promises for you, your family, church, ministry and business.
11. There is a generational convergence taking place. It’s a season for new young leaders to be mentored and raised up. Generations are converging together and will function together in relationship for the purpose of multiplication. Generational wells and new wells will open together. Fathers and mothers will take their place and sons and daughters will come into their place. Those that have not been fathers will now step into a fathering role. Gen 26:18-24 is a key scripture for this.
12. I saw a vision of an open door. This is the year of the open door. As we run through it we will come into divine acceleration. New favor, new opportunities and new advancements. Key scripture is Rev. 3:7-13. God will keep us from the hour of trial coming upon the whole earth. It’s time to hold fast what you have so no one robs you of your crown. Have patient endurance. The name of God will be upon us.
13. I saw a vision of the Lord blowing upon a flickering flame. Usually when someone blows on a candle the flame goes out. But as God breathed upon the flame within us it got brighter and hotter. It will be a season of renewing our first love for God (Rev 2:2-7). God is bringing both an encouragement and warning that if our works are not done from the place of first love, the candlestick can be removed. Ministry work must be done from the place of first love for Jesus. God is calling people back to the simplicity of worship and living a life in His presence. This will also bring deeper consecration, holiness and divine fire as a result. Key verse is Mt 12:20. A smoldering wick He will not snuff out.

I encourage you to pray over these 13 prophetic decrees and meditate on them and apply them to your lives as the Holy Spirit leads you.

2013: New E.R.A has Begun: Kingdom Alignment by Angela Greenig

2013: New E.R.A. has Begun: Kingdom Alignment by Angela Greenig

Angela Greenig
This 2013 is one of the greatest years of Heavenly Angelic Visitation that we will ever witness! The sky is the limit to what you can have when you pray and believe.  God says you will receive wisdom to make and fulfill destiny and dreams within your lives.  Dreams that you may have thought were aborted or stolen.  Dreams that you thought you had lain down. God says you will walk in a greater power of the Holy Spirit.  For many, this is your year of Favor, and the IMPOSSIBLE becoming possible.
The previous two years have been a time of alignment and preparation.  They have been vital to the Purposes and Plans God has in store for each one of us that will be revealed in its fullness this year if we will pray, seek, and pay attention.
Numbers are Very Symbolic:
·       In 2010 – [20] is Redemption, and [10] means Divine Perfection/LAW/ORDER Gods laws had to be in place, not only in the natural but in the Spirit as well.
·       2011 – [11] Means Judgment, if you break it down, it means Deliverance/Justice
·       2012 – [12] Means governmental authority that releases perfection. There are many, many facets to the number 12.
·       2013 – The Apostolic and Prophetic Fathers and Mothers will take their rightful seats of authority, at Gods table. There will be a spiritual change this year that will charge the atmosphere.  The number 13 means sin/rebellion. It is coming down. Many prodigals are and will come home this year. The number 13 also means Disciple; many will help us to release the ERA (Evangelism, Radical Army). It’s the year of fulfilling the harvest. Evangelism will rise and shine upon those in great darkness.
Arise Sons and Daughters
Arise Sons and Daughters from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you-rise to a new life!  Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! This new season is here and it’s now. It will take faith to step into the fullness of what God has called and ordained for you. Many of you have an uncommon seed that will produce an uncommon harvest!! This is the year of the sickle to be put onto the fields, for behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. He’s rising upon you right now!!! You have purpose in His Kingdom, what you do with this seed and the year ahead will be determined by you. If you keep the seed [your destiny, business, family] in your hands God cannot activate the fullness of His Blessings and goodness.
You Will Succeed
This year determine in your Soul [your mind, will and emotions] that this is the year you succeed in all that you do. Speak to the mountains and the circumstances in your life. Decree those things that have not yet happened that they will. I believe that God is daring us to dream again. The writing is on the Wall and losing is not an option. Far too long many have settled for status quo, barely getting by but getting by.  For he who sows to his own flesh (lower nature, sensuality) will from the flesh reap decay and ruin and destruction, but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.  And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes round about you and see! They all gather themselves together, they come to you. Your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried and nursed in the arms.  Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and tremble with joy [at the glorious deliverance] and be enlarged.
May you be encouraged as you dwell on the Glory of His Majesty! “The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of men.” Daniel 4:17Oh, Most High… God has made the heavens and the earth by your outstretched hand.  Rejoice in the Power and Majesty of Our King!!!
This new season will be just that: new, refreshing and you will step into your destiny!
