A PROPHETIC NOW WORD – JANUARY 2012
Get Ready for God’s 5 Upgrades and Enhancements Via The Holy Spirit
Here in the Inland Northwest of North Idaho andEastern Washington, on the days of January 23-25-26, we experienced some very strong winds – 25-40 mph with gusts from 45-60 mph.
I don’t know if you heard that we are in a time of the strongest solar flares (radiation) in 8 years, those sun flares causing phenomenal demonstration of the spectacular Northern Lights across the far north parts of the earth.
What does it all mean? Well, some begin to experience fear and anxieties when those natural things of such force begin to happen, but just remember, things that happen in the natural are most often related to what’s happening in the spiritual, and this is a time of great spiritual happenings. No. 8 means new, and this is the time of Isaiah 43:19 – God’s NEW things. One of the definitions of the word new is different from what you are used to.
This is not a time to fret over upheavals (Psalm 37:1), but be ready and prepared for an awesome move of The Lord through The Holy Spirit.
As I listened to the winds howling during those three days, and hearing about the massive solar flares, I pondered all that activity before The Lord, He suddenly spoke to me and said, “These happenings are the beginning of the greater outpouring and greater impartation upon My people who have been seeking Me earnestly, waiting on Me, and expecting Me to do something greater beginning in 2012.”
The Lord then reminded me of His words in Acts 2:17a, “And it shall come to pass in the last days, that I will pour out of My (Holy) Spirit upon all mankind.” Then he took me to Jeremiah Chapter 1 and put verse 11 before me and asked, “John, what do you see.” I responded to Him and said, “As a result of hearing the strong winds blow and hearing about the intense solar flares, I see a great outpouring of Your Holy Spirit coming in a spectacular way.”
In Jeremiah 1:11, that prophet told The Lord that he saw things blossoming in late winter. This past November, The Lord showed me through a daytime vision of His greater outpouring and impacting of anointing, favor and fulfillment in a 25-30 miles wide corridor along the Idaho-Washington state line stretching from Lewiston, ID-Clarkston, WA area, through the Moscow, ID-Pullman, WA area, through the Inland Northwest from Spokane-Spokane Valley-Liberty Lake, WA area, through Post Falls and Coeur d’Alene, ID area, all the way up the state line to the USA-Canada border.
As I was looking at and pondering that vision in regards to when that might begin to place, The Lord took me again to Jeremiah 1:11 where he asked the prophet, “What do you see?” The prophet responded, “I see a blossoming in late winter.”
The Lord then said to him, “You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it.” That goes right along with a much overlooked word from Ezekiel 12:21-28, Amplified Bible. Please take time to read those verses carefully
Prophetically speaking in regards to the strong winds and solar flares and spectacular demonstration of the Northern Lights – all happening as I write this, get ready; prepare; for the sudden moves of God through The Holy Spirit, are about to begin – before the Pentecost celebration which is May 12 this year. I sense from The Lord this move of God will begin sometime in March and increase for a time following.
The Lord then spoke to me similar words that He spoke to the prophet, Habakkuk, in Habakkuk 2:3 and to John the apostle in Revelation 1:11, saying, “Write what you’ve seen and heard and send it to My people what I am about to do through My Holy Spirit.”
Prophetically speaking, here’s what’s coming – get ready, be prepared, for:
GOD’S 5 UPGRADES/ENHANCEMENTS IN EARLY 2012 THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT’S IMPARTATION AND IMPACT.
The word upgrade means to raise the standards of – to increase that which The Lord has spoken and purposed. Prophet Graham Cooke brought a very powerful encouraging declaration on God’s coming upgrades, when he spoke at the Aglow International Conference in September-October inHouston,TX.
The word enhance means to heighten, to make greater, to cause increase. We can liken an enhancement to an upgrade.
THE 5 UPGRADES – ENHANCEMENTS THE LORD HAS PURPOSED
THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT
(All Scripture from the Amplified Bible unless otherwise noted)
#1 – JUDGES 6:34a, “But the Spirit of the Lord CLOTHED Gideon with Himself and took possession of Him.”
To be clothed in this sense is to be fully equipped and prepared.” Through this impartation, God prepared Gideon to face a most challenging situation described in Judges 7:1-8 and 16:22. It was one of God’s NEW THINGS, as He has declared He is going to be doing according to Isaiah 43:19. Saints of Almighty God (see Ephesians 1:1 to find out what a real saint is).
Get ready and be prepared for Holy Spirit to clothe you in a more upgrading enhancing way than you’ve ever experienced.
#2 – 1 SAMUEL 16:13, “Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed David in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of the Lord CAME MIGHTILY upon David from that day forward.”
The Holy Spirit anointing came mightily upon David at the moment the oil was poured upon him. The word mightily means powerfully. There was no delay. David had long prepared for this hour, such as Jesus’ disciples prepared for 10 days with one mind for Pentecost. One mind? They were all in agreement with God’s purpose on, in and through them.
Ah, brethren, it is a MUST to come into full agreement with God’s plans, purposes, timing and His way on, in and through you, whether you understand it all or not. Get rid of all fear, doubt, unbelief and impatience, and hearken to Psalm 27:14, “Wait, hope and expect The Lord.” Get ready and be prepared for Holy Spirit to come on you mightily in a more upgrading enhancing way than you’ve ever experienced.
#3 – LUKE 1:35, “Then the angel said to her, The Holy Spirit WILL COME UPON YOU LIKE A SHINING CLOUD.”
The Angel Gabriel was sent by God to bring a most powerful prophetic word to Mary, again, about God planning to do an Isaiah 43:19 – NEW THING – happening on, in, and through her; NEW – different from what you understand.
That which God had purposed could only take place by this most powerful impartation via The Holy Spirit. Can God do the same impartation to You? Note Luke 1:37, “For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.”
Okay beloved of God, get ready, for as you observe God’s brightness shining around or through the clouds, it just may be your time for a Luke 1:35 experience, for He has purposed His upgrades and enhancements for such a time as this.
#4 – ACTS 2:1-4, “And when the day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all assembled together in one place. When suddenly there came a sound from heaven like A VIOLENT RUSHING WIND (New American Standard Bible), and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them TONGUES RESEMBLING FIRE, which were separated and distributed and which settled on each one of them. And they were all FILLED (DIFFUSED THROUGHOUT THEIR SOULS) with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in tongues.”
THE WIND – The winds of the Holy Spirit have begun to blow afresh, as we have been experiencing here in the Inland Northwest.
Charles Spurgeon said this in his great sermon titled The Pentecostal Wind and Fire: “God often reveals Himself in the wind. The sound came on this occasion, no doubt, to call the attention of the assembly to what was about to occur, to arouse them, and to fill them with awe. This holy breath was not only intended to quicken them, but to invigorate (refresh) them. If the winds of earth are so refreshing, what must a wind of heaven be! The disciples, 120 of them, for 10 days, were packed together in that Upper Room. They needed invigorating (to cause to feel fresh and lively and strengthened), so first comes the mighty rushing wind. That rushing mighty wind soon cleared the air, aroused the disciples (ignited excitement), and left them braced up for what was yet to come. The result of the Holy Spirit wind was that the disciples took in a great drink of heavenly life, and a sacred enthusiasm came upon them (meaning a time when the functions of their senses were suspended by the contemplation of some extraordinary or supernatural happening; their minds were in captivated attention to a particular subject, and looking forward toward a supernatural event that was promised). No doubt this wind was intended to show the irresistible power of the Holy Spirit, for simple as the air is, once set in motion, you feel that a thing of life is among you; make that motion more rapid, and such power comes forth, with much sound and results.”
THE HOLY SPIRIT FIRES – YES, MORE THAN JUST ONE. There are actually three fires to experience from the Baptism of The Holy Spirit – HOLY FIRE to set you apart unto the five main callings of God – the distinct callings of Matthew 28:18-20, John 4:23-24, Acts 1:8, Ephesians 4:11-13, 1 Peter 2:9; HOLY SPIRIT REFINING FIRE, to make us more Christ like – Romans 8:29 and Malachi 3:1-3 – that we may truly mirror Christ to a lost, sick and dying world; HOLY SPIRIT FIREPOWER – According to J.E. Conant, in his book titled Divine Dynamite, here’s what happened to the disciples of Jesus Christ with that visitation of the Holy Spirit firepower: “That Divine Dynamite (Holy Spirit) took possession of the waiting one hundred and twenty in the upper room on the Day of Pentecost, filled them with power, set them on fire, loosened their tongues, broke up their prayer meeting, drove them out among the lost, and set them to witnessing to the wonderful works of God.” And the results that followed as they witnessed and testified full of the Holy Spirit and power was that salvation came to 3,000 (Acts 2:41); plus people were getting saved daily (Acts 2:47).
ALL WERE FILLED. To be filled is to be occupied so that no space is left vacant. Diffused throughout – to pour out and spread as a fluid and to cause to flow in all directions throughout our spirit man, touching, impacting every area. Throughout means from one extremity (from one utmost part) to the other or everywhere; to be totally saturated or totally soaked or totally drenched.
THEY ALL SPOKE IN TONGUES. You may already speak in tongues, but do you do it a whole lot? Do you worship in tongues? This last days outpouring, upgrading, enhancing by The Holy Spirit is going to bring a greater realization – or wake up call – of the vital importance of tongues, for SPEAKING/PRAYING/WORSHIPPING IN TONGUES IS EVIDENCE OF BEING BAPTIZED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT – “They … all … began to speak in tongues.” TONGUES GIVES US A SPECIAL COMMUNICATION WITH GOD – 1 Corinthians 14:2, “For one who speaks in an [unknown] tongue speaks not to men but to God” Romans 8:26, “So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings to deep for utterance.” SPEAKING IN TONGUES EDIFIES ONESELF – 1 Corinthians 14:4a, “He who speaks in a [strange] tongue edifies …… himself.” To edify means to be built up; to cause the improvement and progress of the mind in knowledge; to be improved in moral and religious knowledge, and in faith and holiness. SPEAKING IN TONGUES IMPROVES ONESELF – 1 Corinthians 14:4a, “He who speaks in a (different) tongue ….. improves himself.” To improve means to make better; to increase the value of, the worth of, to grow or become better, to advance in goodness, knowledge, wisdom, or anything else desirable. PRAYING IN TONGUES BUILDS UP ONE’S FAITH – Jude 20, “But you beloved, build yourselves up [founded] on your most holy faith [make progress, rise like and edifice higher and higher], praying in the Holy Spirit.” SPEAKING IN TONGUES EXTOLS AND MAGNIFIES GOD – Acts 10:46, “For they heard them talking in [unknown] tongues (languages) and extolling and magnifying God.” To extol and magnify means to applaud. Wow! Think of that! When you speak, sing, or pray in tongues, you are applauding God.
Brethren, the wind of The Holy Spirit is blowing strong, and God’s Holy Spirit fires are coming forth in greater measure – to upgrade and enhance your walk and relationship with Him and preparing you for His higher callings and doings.
#5 – 1 CORINTHIANS 2:9-10 (emphasis in italics mine), “But on the contrary, as the Scripture says, What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man and woman, [ALL THAT] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him (according to Mark 12:30) [who hold Him in AFFECTIONATE REVERANCE – warmly attached to or focused on like David in Psalm 27:4, Psalm 42:1-2, Psalm 63:1-5 – promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed]. Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for the [Holy] Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God [the divine counsels and things hidden beyond man’s scrutiny – close investigation].”
Oh, hallelujah, get ready, for this hour and the hours, days, weeks and months just before us, because Almighty God through the illuminating of His Word by His Holy Spirit, is going to upgrade and enhance your reading, studying and meditating on the Bible verses.
The Lord God through the impacting impartation by His Holy Spirit, wants you to begin to experience the greater revelation of His awesomeness and majesty perhaps even like David experienced in Psalm 63:2 (“I saw Your power and glory in the sanctuary”), thus upgrading and enhancing your walk and relationship with Him that will impact your life like never before.
GET READY! PREPARE, BRETHREN! FOR ALMIGHTY GOD IS ABOUT READY TO MOVE IN SUCHA WAY, THAT IF YOU DON’T PREPARE AND GET READY, WELL, YOU JUST MAY MISS IT.
