Greetings to all,
Months ago the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart that: “The rest of the year was going to be the best of the year.” When I heard that in my spirit, I immediately shared it with many of you.
Many times we feel that we have a word from God but no evidence of it. And as time goes on things will happen and we get little bits of encouragement from God to remind us of what He has said, letting us know that we did hear Him. And that what He said was true, that He hasn’t forgotten it, and it will come to pass.
Now, on Saturday as I was in a conversation talking about a class that a mutual friend was taking, I heard in my spirit that her class was going to be the very thing that would take her “fast forward” in her ministry. In and of itself that didn’t seem unusual, but then comes the rest of the story.
A little further on in the conversation we talked about Rosh Hashanah, the Hebrew New Year, and that it would fall on the eve of September 4th this year. That took us to the question, what does the year 2014/5774 stand for? When I found the Hebrew meaning for the year, I have to say that I almost jumped off my chair. The pieces of the puzzle, the dots were connecting. Now, it was making sense why the Lord would say that the rest of the year was going to be the best of the year. “THE REST OF THE YEAR, and now I see that the NEXT YEAR is going to be the best because, WE ARE “LEAPING FORWARD.” OH MY GOODNESS!!! OMGoodness!!! As I write this I hear “the processes that we should normally have to go through, we will bypass and go straight forward to the goal, the finish line.”
After I got off the phone I remembered something that I had heard back in the spring. On March 29th of this year I sensed I was to begin a fast. I was believing God for some big things in my life and the lives of others. I chose to fast on Friday’s. By the second week I heard in my spirit “Fasting Fridays to Fast Forward.” So, now when I see “Leaping Forward” I can’t help but to get excited. I see how God is preparing us for something Big to happen.
As you read on, I pray that this message by Jo Ellen Stevens, will not only bless you but that you will grab on to what God is saying and realize that God is in control and that there is greatness on the horizon and blessings are about to overflow.
You Are Going From Breakthrough To A Giant Leap ~By Jo Ellen Stevens on August 6, 2013
I keep hearing the Lord say the word “breakthrough”… We are about to take some giant leaps forward in the coming Hebrew year 5774!! We are in a time of “breaking through” right now for the purpose of bringing us into this giant leap! The coming Hebrew year 5774 has the meaning of “Leaping Forward” We will be leaping forth in our ministries! Some of you have been feeling the press back in this time of transition and the Lord just wanted me to tell you this morning that “even though there seems to be no movement in where you are right now and even though it seems to be very dark right now. There are going to be many great breakthroughs from now through Rosh Hashanah and it will be as if you were calves let out of the stall, and those that have crested a great mountain,but now it will be like running down that mountain full of joy!
The struggling you have been doing will begin to be a Holy ease as you break through and leap forward!! This will be “ONE GIANT LEAP” for those in my Kingdom! So hold fast in this hour of waiting, continue to seek me diligently, and listen for instruction and strategy. I am giving strategy for the place that you will land when you take this giant leap….”
I saw in a vision tonight a man running but there were many people trying to stop him on his path and as he ran he was pushing through the crowd to get to what looked like a finish line facing the sun.
“So do not allow the press to stop you but go forward because breakthrough is the next of God as you wait in my presence to hear my voice. Stay in peace right now.Let me deal with your enemies and those that oppose you and I will expose the evil of their doing. Keep your eyes on me and seek first the Kingdom. Love all those that stand in your way but focus on the prize of the high calling of your God and soon even in the month of September and beyond into 2014 you will see great breakthroughs and then we will leap forward and it will seem as if I have restored the time that you thought the enemy stole,” but the Lord says “you have not lost time but have gained wisdom for all that I am taking you to!!” You will not only leap forward but you shall leap for joy in that day that I do all of these things says the Lord!!”
Malachi 4:2-3 (AMP) “But unto you who revere and worshipfully fear My name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings and His beams, and you shall go forth and gambol like calves [released] from the stall and leap for joy. And you shall tread down the lawless and wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, says the Lord of hosts.”
(Note: this was copied directly from the prophetic word. I did not correct the error in the last paragraph, not wanting to mis-interpret what the author was saying.)
We are leaping forward……skipping steps that we would otherwise have to do first to accomplish our assignments. But, Not in this season. We ARE “LEAPING FORWARD”
Be encouraged, and live in anticipation of what God is about to do over the next 18 months. Great happenings are on the horizon.
Exceeding Abundance and Happy New Year!!! Diana
