A Word for the Season
By: Phyllis Ford
March 1, 2017
Times and seasons are very essential things when we look at God’s Word, because time has always been a significant factor. Within it we see cycles and patterns that set in motion things for the purpose of them being be clearly identified, recognized, and not over looked by us. I see a convergence of so many things all taking place at the same time. Jesus who is the Alpha and Omega is drawing lines in the sand about some things that man has judged to be one thing when His rendering was different. It has been clearly spoken that when it comes to the mind of Christ and our own mind they many times don’t line up. Truth being that God’s way of thinking, processing, and judging far exceeds our own. As clear as that is, many of us have forgotten that. I believe, we are about to see a marking in time. As we are trying to get everything in focus, we will see suddenlies occur before our eyes. A week or so ago I had a series of lucid dreams revealing some things that were not on my mind nor on my prayer list. One dream stood out among the rest, and I believe in this dream, the Lord began to clarify somethings that were indicators of what we are looking at right now.
I was in the midst of a kingdom gathering and things begin to happen. Things that I wanted to control how they occurred almost as if I wanted to slow down the process. I found myself adjusting to the situation instead of the situation adjusting to suit me. I began to go with it, I knew that it was God’s will being walked out in the process. An unusual man appeared speaking to me quickly I began to slow him down and he then lead me out of the building. The next thing I knew I had left the gathering to walk out a path so to speak that was highly significant at that time. Before I knew it I had walked upon new ground (freshly laid ground), and I knew it was important to adjust again. (I want you to know. Things are rapidly unfolding and we are not going to be able to dictate the process and how it will be walked out. And it will unfold before us without notice.) In the dream, I said wow I have just come upon freshly laid SOD. My shoes had SOD on them and I wanted to clean them. The man lead me to a clean body of water so close I don’t know how I didn’t see it before. I sat there and cleaned my shoes and feet and woke up. My daughter has a gift of interpreting dreams. She said, “You were in a place where God’s will was starting to unfold before you. Though you could recognize that these events were occurring because of God you could not mange and alter the things happening around you. It was Sovereign. Then God sends you a messenger like He has throughout the pattern of His word when something significant was coming, but the nature of who he sends you is unique. You could not comprehend what he was saying because he spoke fast. I believe he “the man” was acceleration. Possibly an angel of acceleration. Realizing that you couldn’t understand him he was carrying out what he was sent to do. Leading you into a new place. One called SOD. This is the place where Suddenly Overtakes Delay. As you notice things stuck to you after trying to adjust, he shows you that this is a place where you don’t have to worry. A place where solutions appear even faster than problems. I believe in that place you washed yourself of worry and gave in to trusting God despite the unusually quick occurrences around you. I also believe that gospel and the good news God has given you and those like you will carry the power to overcome and accelerate during this season. As well as the authority to tread over delay. Go with God’s flow and follow His process. For it’s nothing strange it’s just the season we are in.” After I received her interpretation, the Lord confirmed to me that every word was true, but it was a direct word to others for this season!
Many times we weary in the wait of that which He has spoken then when the suddenlies appear we don’t quite realize it until it is upon us. No matter how prophetic, wise in the Lord, and confident in areas of discernment we maybe God’s ways are much higher. It is our time before God submitted that helps us to bridge the gap. When we get there we will know that our delay has been dealt with through sudden manifestation of God’s Will for our lives brought about by acceleration.
As I was in before the Lord, He spoke to me about not just “the walk” (the process) of getting to where we are suppose to be, but also to the signs and signals of things to come so that we won’t miss our day of visitation. When I say the day of visitation many times the statement is made, when He comes how will he find us? (Luke 18:8) But before that will we know who He is and what we have truly walked up on? They walked upon the road to Emmaus. Emmaus means, “uncertain” or “hot spring”. Now the dual meanings alone shed much light on the path Jesus appeared to them on. The walk they took with Jesus was everything, and yet they could not see at the time that it was Him. God is leading us in unusual and unexpected ways down paths of uncertainty into places of supernatural springs. Yet to go through the process we must walk with Him. Even when we can’t see and understand we have to get to the place where we trust God and allow Him to reveal His heart, His plan, and His purposes to us. At times we have become dependent upon ourselves, while we have been talking about Jesus without be fully aware that He has been trying to walk with us. This is a season to follow God. To surrender our control so that we might experience the grand reveal of His plan. As times progresses much will happen, but those who trust in God and surrender to Him in this time will be taken to supernatural places. (Luke 24:13-35)
We are about to walk upon ground that seems insignificant, because it is not a large place. The birthing of great things can happen in the obscure places. Micah begins to speak about Oh Bethlehem Ephratah (which was the place of His birth) which speaks of how one will be born from that land who would rule all. Jesus was born in BETHLEHEM! Prophecy fulfilled in a small place in a small stable. (Micah 5:2) Don’t look upon the smallness of the place you’re in, but see the potential and know that your God will do great things. I tell you today there is about to be something big happening on small ground. In small places in the “Bethlehem’s” all over we will see revival fires begin to burn bright. Outpourings of the anointing like we haven’t seen in times pass. People will be healed, miracles will break out, and the news agencies will start to gather to see what is going on. Those embers will blow upon larger regions and many will look to the larger regions but others will know where it first happened. His oil is about to be poured upon nations of people. The marking of time has begun and this oil will not stopped, but it flow and grow. It will begin to bring others to receive and witness the plan and move of God. Despise not the day of small things. (Zech 4:10) We are about to hear the sound of the wind over the mulberries trees and we will clearly know that a fresh move of the coming of the Lord will yield grace and take place before us, and the heavens will rejoice!
