Another great word from Doug Addison. We have been hearing a lot lately that we need to "contend for our breakthrough" read this word and be encouraged....Stephen Prophetic Word: "Contend for Your Breakthrough" by Doug Addison Forerunners are Emerging Don't be alarmed by all the disasters and unrest in the world. This is a time to stay at peace and stay on course with what God is revealing to you. The turmoil is birth pains of something new from God that is now emerging. God is raising many people up as forerunners to the new movement that is upon us. We are called to be "new wineskin" Believers that will be willing to love people and not judge them. This new move of God that is upon us is a release of supernatural love and mercy. Relationships Restored In January 2015, I released a prophetic word for the year 2015. This is what God spoke to me about the month of May: "God is going to begin to accelerate things. Just as May is the fifth month, so it will be a time of a supernatural release of grace [five is symbolic of grace]. The spirit and ministry of reconciliation will be released and relationships will be restored. This will happen even with your own relationship with God as He reveals Himself as a Father to you. There will be a deep mending of hidden hopelessness and building of a greater trust in you." I responded to this in my own life by reaching out to five people and asking forgiveness. I invite you to try this as well. In the season we are now in, it is important to keep the spiritual atmosphere clear. God is in the business of reconciling people, and we have to embrace people who are different than us as well as those that we have disagreements with. 2 Corinthians 5:19 NIV ...God was reconciling the world to Himself in Christ, not counting people's sins against them. And He has committed to us the message of reconciliation. Get Ready for Things to Move Fast Expect fast movement, realigning, and relocation. Some people will need to move to new jobs or associations to advance. This is not just for physical moving but for all sorts of different areas of life. Sudden movement, quick advancement, and realignment will be the result of new assignments coming to people. The purpose behind this is to get you in the right place at the right time. There have been people in our old season that might not recognize the advancement you are making. We can sometimes be held back by not moving forward. Contending for Your Breakthrough I have been prophesying this: This is a season of time that you can recover things that were stolen or lost over the past seven years or more. You have to press in and contend for it! I recommend reading 1 Samuel 30 where David had lost everything and his followers were ready to kill him. In the midst of his distress, he inquired of God and got a strategy (verse 7). He was able to recover his losses, and in chapter 31 his life destiny radically shifted. He went from running from the enemy to ruling as King of Israel. But it was not without a battle! This is a prophetic word for now: Inquire of God and get your strategy to break through. I was healed of Huntington's chorea and Lyme Disease as well as several other things that have come against me. To be honest, I did not feel like I could go on one more day. But like David, I inquired of God and got a strategy. From there I took radical steps that eventually turned things around. I just released a new blog on how I inquired of the Lord and got out of a major amount of debt and received several major healings. You can read it here: Strategies to Get Healed and Out of Debt. "Judgments Make Things Slippery" I had a dream that I was trying to walk up a ramp with others to get to a new level. As we all tried to move forward, we kept slipping backward. God spoke to me in the dream that judgments against other people will prevent us from getting to the next level. I woke up repenting for any judgments I might have. I also knew that this is a word for the greater Church. Matthew 7:1-2 NIV (Jesus said), "Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." If you judge other people and you yourself have the same sin in your life, then you will begin to lose your authority. But if you extend grace and love to others, you will begin to experience a new level of freedom. You don't have to agree with a person or their lifestyle, but we are required to love. There is a move of God coming in those that we have judged. We need to repent of judgments so that we can minister to others with a pure heart. Because David extended grace and spared King Saul's life, it set him up to later receive grace from God when he needed it during his own difficult times. Get Out of Solitary Confinement I released a prophetic word recently about people being under "House of God arrest." This is similar to house arrest - i.e. because of accusations you have been limited in your calling. God is breaking that off. But as a result of their house arrest season, many people have been in solitary confinement. God is calling those who have been in isolation to come out. Many of you were wounded and rejected, and you recoiled. It is time to come out and experience a new level of healing and restoration. Rise Above The prophetic word I released for 2015 is that this is the year of the "open door in Heaven." God showed me Revelation 4:1, that we need to "come up here, and I will show you the things that are about to take place." We need to rise above our current trials and situations and gain God's perspective. We have had to battle the continual attacks of the enemy for the past few years, but we will not back down. Galatians 6:9 NIV Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Let's agree in prayer together for our breakthrough strategy.
