For the past few years the Lord has been showing me the seasons of the Church. On 3/29/2011, I was in Church and Holy Spirit prompted me to open my eyes. I saw someone with a purple robe about 7 feet tall holding a golden staff. I couldn’t see his face, just the purple robe draped over him. The Lord spoke to my heart and said, “His name is Royalty, and He’s here to establish royalty within My children. This happened when I was in Bible College.
The next day at school I ran into students that were talking about a powerful message they heard about us being royalty. I found out that multiple congregations across many denominations started teaching on royalty and identity.
At the start of 2013, the Lord showed me that He is mobilizing His bride. New years eve, a man dressed in a santa suite came over to give my children gifts. He had a cast around his wrist. We prayed and he freaked out and left when he started feeling heat while we were praying. My wife and I were having a prophetic gathering and while we went to get pizza for it, I noticed a lady with a wrap on her hand. I asked her what happened and she said carpel tunnel. She was going into surgery for it the next day. After a quick prayer, she was healed. At the gathering, a guy showed up who had an injured spine and his legs were skinny with no feeling in them. We prayed for his back until he started getting balance and the pain left. Then I started to pray for his legs and I felt the muscle build up under my hands and feeling returned to his legs.
That night, we were praying and asked the Lord about what was going on this year. The Lord spoke to my heart and said, “Those healings weren’t random, the bride has had her hands, legs, and backbone bound up.” And that He wanted to mobilize the body. All through 2013 there was increased focus unity and many congregations started working together. I’ve been seeing the fruit of it as we’re witnessing.
I’ve also received many words about this year, which I’ll put that word out in another post.
Today, on 3/25/2014 I was praying and asking the Lord about manifesting the Kingdom in Portland, I received a word over the NorthWest. After I received it Holy Spirit made it clear that it's time to release it.
God has released equipping angels and those positioned are going to receiving a greater anointing and authority to manifest the Kingdom. I saw a vision of angels with spears, and then I saw the body of Christ being the spear piercing through the heart of Portland, first the tip and then the rest of the spear following after. The tip of the spear are those positioned to receive and run with what God's releasing. This is not only for Portland but also the whole North West.
