Word of the Lord November 2016

We are about to see a refining in the move of the Prophetic. The Lord began to show me how the results of the elections as well as the course of events that are about to occur, will cause some prophets to rethink what they claim they heard as utterance concerning what is soon to be some of the most defining moments in our history.
It has much to do with our disappointment in government and emotional frustration that has caused a skewed hearing. Sharing with those that which is really in their own hearts and not in the mouth of God. It will cause the heart of those who are before the Lord in these tough times to repent and seek Him afresh. This is not so much a bad thing but it will establish fresh boundaries and a fresh fire baptism.
Deliverance is a key word in this hour it will carry the determining factor for moving forward and making new strides more than we have seen in times past. Fresh consecrations and a crying out to the Lord will be to the purifying of purpose and cleansing of streams. Wisdom will arise to the occasion through Apostolic order with soundness to assist in setting issues in order. We will see a greater emergence of a corporate anointing and gathering to come together and clear the air concerning the mind of God and the most important focus in this hour.
The Lord said, “I am removing the celebrity and competition out of my leadership. So that my people will not waver nor err because of deception and false teaching that is running rampant in the church.” This is a time to make ones calling and election sure. (2 Peter 1:5-10) We as leadership will become accountable for what we say, what we do, and how we minister to the broken, abandoned, and those who have lost their way.
Luke 12:47-49 (NLT) "And a servant who knows what the master wants, but isn't prepared and doesn't carry out those instructions, will be severely punished. But someone who does not know, and then does something wrong, will be punished only lightly. When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required. I have come to set the world on fire, and I wish it were already burning!”
Things that have not been balanced are about to be called back into order. There will be a separation in the midst of the joining. For the Lord will weed and sift through that which He has been long suffering over. I am saying this with a deep love and compassion but the Lord is grieved. Due to the standard of leadership in this hour, voices of leadership will be accountable, and His breath will sweep through in this hour purging the motives and intentions of the heart. Although it will be a time of accountability it will not be done with ego and pride but with Godly integrity setting Godly standards to build up the waste places. (Isaiah 58:11&12)
We will see a shifting of a new set of leaders leading the way and bringing forth unity and honor in the midst of His army of servant leaders. At the helm will be those who are saturated in God’s word and prayer. They will wear new garments of a priestly order who will move forward to lay claim to the kingdom work in a fearless manner. Not relying upon themselves, but upon the dictates of the Lord.
In this season there will be great reversals. Before that takes place there will be a release of suppressed emotions that will rise to fever pitch level, in the midst of chaos and confusion. Tensions will turn into conflict as a result of chaotic behavior. Regardless of who wins this election war plans are already under way. If one wins it could be with Russia and if the other wins it could be with North Korea, but without a doubt war is darkening our doorsteps. This is why we must look to God and walk in order and sync with Him, leaning not unto our own understanding. (Proverb 3:5-8)
Submitting to wisdom and sound discernment because the war within our nation is a distraction that will leave us open to attacks from our true enemy. Upon the heels of this reality God has prepared an army of watchmen, gatekeepers, and stealth warriors who have seen visions and dreams and are poised to rise and possess the land.
We are in a day when the hands of Jacob are being crossed over Ephraim and Manasseh and in it the Lord is balancing the unjust weights. We need to keep our eyes open because God is about to make some unusual changes that will astonish those that thought they were aware of all that was about to take place.
“I saw groups of people sowing prayer like seeds. All of a sudden that harvest began to crop up so abundantly large that it couldn’t be counted. The fruit of the seeds coming were unusual in size and in what was perceived to be planted something different came up. (For Example: Where tomatoes were planted up came large carrots bigger than ever.) I heard the words, “unusual harvest”. I also heard that wisdom would need to be implemented in order to know how to properly gather this harvest.” This will be a unique strategy of the Lord and the enemy will not be able to discern nor counter what God is doing.
Radical shifting will bring forth changes and a people unrecognized will initiate the work, because they will be trusted to harvest it. The Lord is exalting the low tree and bringing down the high tree. There will be a mighty exchange of leaders and garments (assignments). We will see a great distinction coming forth out of those who have cried out in the night seasons, because their season of restriction will have ended.
Many people will become keys in this hour and they will unlock great mysteries while locking out the spirit of deception that has overtaken many. People will marvel because there will be a power and deliverance that will come forth with great strength.
There is a merging of the Hebrew calendar with the Gregorian calendar during the feast of Hanukkah (Chanukah). Which begins on December 24th and ends on January 1st. These 8 days will unveil hidden agendas in our land and within our government. The Menorah will be a marker that will represent a people who were found carrying the oil of His presence. As those people go forth uniting as one flame that will intensify each day until it stands at the door of 2017.
