GLOBAL TIDES AND EPIC TRENDS
“Behold you among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvelously: for I will work a work in your days, which you will not believe, though it would be told you…” (Habakkuk 1:5).
THE RISE AND FALL OF KINGDOMS: THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS
International power and control will shift swiftly and concisely to affirm and submit to the will of God. This rapid change in the political landscape will allow for the influx of harvest and missionaries into these regions and countries once gridlocked and resistant. I will fortify my frontlines in the coming months and years to rapidly respond to these shifts and changes. In mass they will leap through the windows of opportunity and exponentially establish my Kingdom on earth. Many will stand as Daniel before Kings and magistrates to rebuild cities and nations. As Joseph they will be an answer to economical and religious crisis. The many dimensions of human existence will begin to be pervaded by My presence. No modern experience or expression will be untouched by My Spirit in the coming days.
PORTUGAL, FRANCE AND ITALY: A THREE-FOLD CORD
Portugal will rise to international prominence in the coming days says the Lord. They will begin to walk in the destiny prepared for them before the foundations of the earth. Portugal will become a gate of great harvest and an entrance to regions where I desire to move. The people of Portugal will see a great light that will be a beacon from one side of the sea to the other. It will be a lighthouse of compassion in times of deep distress and grief. I will pour Myself out upon her shores. Lisbon even now will be established as an apostolic epi-centre in these epic times. My light will be bright in Lisbon says the Lord. My light will be bright in Lisbon.
France will be a bridge of peace in times of war and unrest. A hiding place in continental divisions and storms. She will be a peacemaker while others are for war. A song of freedom will resound from France. Italy, Portugal and France will come into an eternal alliance in these epic days. A three-fold cord of harvest that cannot be broken. Ancient divisions will give way to this holy alliance. David’s tabernacle of intercession and worship will be heard in these three places. Italy will be a sound of praise in a season of sorrow says the Lord. Italy will be a sound of praise in a season of sorrow. She will take the instruments from the willows and worship. My intercession will be heard in Italy.
IRELAND AND SCOTLAND: HISTORIES GREATEST VICTORIES
Ireland and Scotland will unite as spiritual forces in this hour to war against global principalities and powers. A sound of spiritual battle will be heard around the world from this place. A strong tower of prayer will be established in their borders. Like Joseph and Ephraim, these two sticks will be one in My hand says the Lord. I will unite these nations to raise a cadence of victory over the land. The Spirit of Patrick will rise in the hearts of the youth. Reformation in every facet of their society will create an atmosphere of transfiguration. A vanguard of creative prophets will infiltrate Irish and Scottish television to publish My inspired thoughts abroad. A number of epic sweeping movies will come from this genre to impact the world and change the paradigm of modern thinking. Watch these two countries says the Lord, watch them closely.
AN ARMY OF CREATIVE PROPHETS: THE BEGINNING OF A NEW ERA
Even now My Spirit hovers over the creative deep of Hollywood. Even now my Elijah’s are poised to present My Kingdom in her screening rooms and theatres. Many will come to the knowledge of salvation through their work which will create a phenomenon in modern film making and writing. This will dramatically effect and impact Japan. Spiritual collaborations will occur between these two entities of creativity to produce prophetic animation that will set a new standard in this arena. Relatively unknown artists and writers will emerge from this light of revelation to present modern masterpieces that will move the heart of a generation; creating a spiritual vacuum that only My Spirit can fill. This new level of creativity coming from this army of creative prophets will rival the works of the master’s that set the trends centuries ago. They will overcome their predecessors with their brilliance and anointing. Modern day Shakespeare’s will write the reformational manifesto that will set the standard for contemporary art and expression.
THE 10/40 WINDOW AND BEYOND: A CHANGE IN MISSIONS STRATEGY
The cracks created by persistent prayer will now begin to break the levee of spiritual resistance in the 10/40 window. A flood of missionary opportunity will present itself for a three year period beginning in 2004. I will give my missionaries divine strategies to infiltrate these regions exponentially and dramatically. What once took years to establish and build will now take only months. I will do a quick work in these regions before the door again begins to close. I will establish My church in such a way in these places that the gates of hell will not prevail. My work will not fail. I will give my ambassador’s witty inventions and creative genius to impact these nations from arenas hitherto untouched. Drama, music, and writing will be at the forefront of this harvest.
PAPUA NEW GUINEA, INDONESIA AND MALAYSIA: A BELT OF TRUTH
I saw a vision of the Lord putting on a great golden belt of Truth. He was girding Himself with Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and Malaysia. It was a belt-way of Truth for these end times. A gauntlet of revival and harvest to the uttermost parts of the earth. From this belt-way of Truth the enemy was restrained and the harvesters released. This region became a launching pad of missionary endeavor to all points on the globe. Surabaya and Jakarta were twin cities of Spiritual power and prominence. The religious chains of restraint were breaking from the hands of the apostles in this region. Cities of righteousness they will now be called. A city on a hill of harvest that cannot be hidden says the Lord.
RUSSIA TO THE NORTH: A CROWN OF THORNS
I saw a crown of thorns upon the head of the globe and she was called Russia. Written over her was: WAR. As Jeremiah saw in chp. 1; “I see a seething pot and the face thereof is toward the North. Then the Lord said to me, Out of the North an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the Land…” (Jer. 1:13-14). A dark rider from Russia was being released in the coming days. But from this dark drama a church will arise from it to shine His light to the nations. Finally free from the ancient dogma and tradition that has bound her. A special force of evangelists and prophets will emerge from the dark north to race into the nations with his revelations. Gifted athletes filled with the Knowledge of the Kingdom will come from Russia to set the sporting fields on fire. They will carry the gold and the silver in the coming days says the Lord. They will carry the gold and the silver.
MEXICO TO THE SOUTH: A BRIDGE OF REVIVAL
I saw a great spiritual passage opening up through the country of Mexico. Millions were passing through her to divers and sundry places carrying the precious seed of the gospel. Political resistance is giving way to the liberty of Christ which will create a freedom of commerce and travel setting the stage for revival. In this new wave of liberty, the ancient call of the missionary will rise up in the Mexican’s heart which will not leave a country untouched by their zeal. Many will traverse the soil of Mexico to carry the message of Christ into the world. Such drastic and epic reform will take place in Mexico in the next seven years that hierarchies from around the world will pattern their own economies after this radical reformation. A divine tie between Germany and Europe will bolster the morale of Mexico causing it to expedite the inherent destiny of the country.
HAITI, JAMAICA, AND CUBA: STEPPING STONES OF TRANSFORMATION
A divine order is being positioned in these strategic regions. Guardians of the ancient gates and watchman on the walls. A treasure of intercession resides in the hearts of these three which will propel the power of change internationally. This will be reflected in the economy and educational institutions of these countries. It will be recorded in the stock market and international exchange. The eyes of consumers will be upon these three. I will put a crown of commerce on their head and they will lead the southern hemisphere into change and reformation. Business men and women that carry My Kingdom dynamic will usher in a new paradigm of business and economy. My anointing will rest on their school systems and the current corruption will be halted. I will raise them up says the Lord, I will raise them up.
PARADIGMS AND DIVINE DESIGNS: A SPIRITUAL QUANTUM LEAP
Modern mindsets that have shaped the thinking of nations will change in a twinkling of an eye as I remove the obstacles of ignorance. The enemy will try to monopolize this as he has in times past but my people shall be a step ahead of his ploys and plots. I will give my people the eyes of intuition and instinct that will confer with My Kingdom to bring about My divine design for the nations. New computer breakthroughs will come from the minds of My children and they will begin to harness the ideas and witty inventions for My Kingdom. This will launch world mission a quantum leap past what it is today. The slow process of positioning and presence will be transformed in the next three years as My people grasp these new paradigm and divine designs. I will give them genius and ingenuity to probe into the future as no other generation has. They will create a stage of momentum and wealth that will propel My people into this new millennium.
A NEW BREED OF MINISTRY: THE BEGINNING OF THE END
A new breed of ministries will eclipse the old wine skins of previous thinking. They will leap over the boundaries set by their predecessors and pioneer a completely different ministry model. They will not succumb to the pressure of modern pulpits that demand their submission. They will break the yokes of contemporary doctrine to set a new trend of liberty. They will not submit to the spirit of Laban that causes them to strive for a false bride. The leadership of Laban shall be removed and the heart of David shall prevail. The seven years of slavery is over says the Lord, the seven years of slavery is over. This is the beginning of the end says the Lord. The days of persecution and pressing has begun. I will sift the threshing floor and find a people after My own heart. I will find a people that will not sell out their inheritance for temporary glory. They will hated and driven out but in this they will learn to love. They will learn to lay down their lives for the Bride.
