Dream: Seasons Are About To Change

Dream:  Seasons Are About To Change

I received this dream on the same night that Benny Hinn spoke on seasons changing.

In October of 2003, I attended a Benny Hinn crusade in Fresno, California. The Holy Spirit ministered to deep areas in my life.

The evening of October 16, 2003, after the service was over and I returned to my hotel, during the night the Lord gave me a prophetic dream concerning a change of seasons that’s coming. This spoke personally to situations in my life, and I believe that this dream was a word for many in the Corporate Body of Christ.

Perhaps this prophetic dream may speak to some situation in your life in which you are believing to see God bring about a breakthrough.

I shared this dream with a friend of mine, and it was a confirmation of what the Lord had been speaking to my friend’s life.  Their situation was different, but God kept on saying to them: “New Season”.

Scene 1: Cloudy. Sky looks bleak. A storm has just passed. Clarity is impaired.

Scene 2: Clouds begin to dissipate as Sunshine peeks through. Eventually the clouds fade away, and there is full sunshine and clear blue skies.

Scene 3: Spring time. New blossoming takes place. Gentle rains.

You may be in a cloudy season right now in your life. Things may look bleak. But there is hope and assurance that this season will be short-lived, and the sun will come out.

You will not remain in your cloudy situation. God is bringing you out. Much sunshine is in store.

Where there was once confusion and difficulty in hearing God’s Voice and seeing in the Spirit with clarity, the clouds shall be parted and you will be able to see and hear clearly. The fog shall clear up.

Where there was sadness, mourning and depression—there shall be gladness and rejoicing. You shall again dance and play your tambourine with joy, like you did in your youth.

Where there was a heavy burden of stress and anxiety, the load will lift and lighten. The enemy of your soul tried to take you out, but God stepped in. The Lord breathed fresh life into those dry bones and gave the command, saying: “Hear the Word of the Lord, O dry bones, and live!”  And revivification came.

Great fruitfulness and productivity is in store. Those delayed promises you are believing God for shall be answered and fulfilled. Abundance and blessings shall be yours. You shall blossom out and flourish. Complete health and healing shall be yours. You shall be lush and green like the tree. The gentle rains of the Glory of God shall descend upon your life, and the Spirit of God will bring refreshment and rejuvenation. A greater anointing is coming.

Spring is coming to your life. A resurrection of old, and dead, dreams shall take place. New life, and double restoration is coming. You shall possess your promised land. You shall have tremendous joy.

God has been working in your life so that you would produce good fruit (the fruit of the Spirit). The Lord has been at work ripening good fruit in you so that one day you would be able to feed others, and be used of God to harvest lost souls. God turned the past pain around in your life so that the day would come when you would be able to help others and minister God’s healing.

Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning (Psalms 30:5). Hope deferred makes the heart sick; but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life (Proverbs 13:12). The Living Bible words it this way: “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when dreams come true at last, there is life and joy.”

The season has shifted. You have come out of your winter season and have entered into a new season of Springtime, where there will be blossoming, fruitfulness and growth. The promises of the Lord are coming to pass in your life. You will rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory! You will receive a double portion anointing, and double portion blessings and prosperity as your inheritance!

God bless you and keep you.

Are You Ready To Receive Your Promise?

Are You Ready To Receive Your Promise?

Today’s message is about us being ready to receive from God those things which He has promised us.

God has promised us many things in His Word. Also, many of us have prophetic promises that were spoken over our lives of what God desires to do. We want to receive our promise or healing. We KNOW that God will do it. But for some reason or another, many are not completely ready to receive their promise at this moment, right now.

For example, many people who are believing God for physical healing are delayed from receiving because they haven’t been ready to make the necessary changes in their lifestyle and nutritional habits. They may have to be willing to give up certain addictions that contribute to illness. Many people are miraculously healed, but then the sickness returns if they have not maintained their healing (i.e., if they go back to old bad nutritional and lifestyle habits, or allow doubt and unbelief to come in).

Many are in need of emotional healing. Complete healing comes when they are ready to forgive, ready to let go of their past, and ready to refuse to no longer be a victim.

Healing comes when they are ready to give their pain to the Lord. Healing comes when they refuse to no longer believe the devil’s lies that they are unlovable and unworthy. They have to be willing to refuse to no longer wallow in a spirit of rejection.

Some need deliverance from sexual addictions, but have to get to the place where they are totally ready to forsake it. Then God can bring about healing and freedom.

For some, God has promised to bless them financially, and He put business ideas into their spirit. But fear and uncertainty keep them from venturing out and entering into God’s promise. “What if I fail?” is the thought that plagues the mind.

For others, the Lord wants to bring healthy relationships that are God-ordained into their life. They want to receive but are having a struggle. There is a battle with feelings of fear, possible rejection, possible betrayal, and issues of trust and opening up to others. Perhaps painful experiences in relationships from the past, such as divorce, abuse, abandonment, disappointments, etc. causes one to be closed or have a very difficult time receiving.

Fear blocks faith from operating. Fear closes the door to receiving. Some are delayed from receiving their healing or promise because they have been a captive to the pain of their past, and living with a victim mentality for so long.

In John 5:5-9, Jesus came by the pool of Bethesda and found a lame man who had suffered with an infirmity for 38 years. Jesus said to him, “Do you want to be made whole?” Rather than the man instantly saying “yes”, he gave Jesus the reasons why he hadn’t been healed in the past. And the man was also stuck in the mode of blaming others for his condition. When the man decided to take responsibility for his own life and stop blaming others and making excuses, then he was able to receive his healing.

Often times we do the same thing as this man. Often times we justify our actions by blaming others or blaming our past for our problems. Even though others may HAVE done us harm and we were victims, God doesn’t want us to remain in a victim mentality for the rest of our lives.

Pastor Paula White often says, “A victim says: ‘I cannot get out unless you let me out’”. That’s too much power to give to a mortal man or woman.

Another reason why some are blocked from receiving their healing is because they are looking more to man to be healed, than to Jesus. Man can’t do much for you. Man is only the vessel, the instrument, in which the healing power of God flows through. Only Jesus can heal. The focus must be on Him.

What is keeping you from receiving God’s promises right now? Fear? Doubt? Past hurts? Unforgiveness? Bitterness? Unresolved past issues? Blaming others? Not ready to let go of something that is blocking you from receiving? Focusing too much on your past? Your past doesn’t have to dictate your present or future. God is doing a new thing. Now it springs forth.

Another thing that keeps us from being totally ready to receive is because we are familiar with the old, as unhappy as it may be. It’s predictable and we know what to expect. The new is uncertain. We have not traveled on the path of new before. There are so many “what ifs?”.

Also, many times feelings of unworthiness get in the way of us receiving. “I am unworthy to receive ______ because ______.” Those unworthiness thoughts are not of God. The author of those thoughts is the devil (whose character is that of lying, deceiving, undermining, cheating, killing, robbing and destroying). Unworthiness thoughts remain when we view ourselves lower than how the Lord sees us. We need to come up higher and see ourselves the way God does. We are royal heirs and heiresses of God.

Feelings of shame also block us from receiving what God has promised. Whether feelings of shame are the result of something we did in the past, or a result of dishonor and disgrace brought upon us by the actions of someone else—we must give it over to the Lord and receive His cleansing and grace. Believe what God’s written Word says and receive it for your life.

If prophetic words were spoken over you and it bore witness with your spirit and is in agreement with the Bible, then trust God to perform His Word. If God spoke some rhema words into your spirit of things He’s promised He’s going to do in your life, then believe God to bring it to pass. When I say “rhema words”, I’m talking about when the Lord speaks to you a fresh, “right now”, word directly through Scriptures that seem to be highlighted and grab your attention.

Your part to acquiring God’s promises for your life is to cooperate with God by doing whatever He tells you to do and by opening up your heart to receive.

May we prepare our hearts to receive all God has for us. May we make whatever changes God tells us to make, so that we are ready to receive.

It’s time to cross over into our promised land and receive what we’ve been believing God for. May we not let fear, doubt and other issues get in the way of receiving our promise. May we be ready to receive. Amen.
