   PROPHETIC WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT

   "OUR CURRENT TIMES"

OUR CURRENT TIMES - by Victoria Brewton

Before dawn, I was awakened to the Lord encouraging us from Jeremiah 33. We are in a season of contending at the gate against the enemy for all the new the Lord is "birthing" through us spiritually in this year of Hannah (miraculous births). While talking with a friend after Rich and Gracie's wedding in Houston in June, I heard the Lord say that He had delayed many birthings to these last 3 months of the year (by God's Biblical calendar) to protect what was coming forth from the enemies waiting to destroy (Rev 12). As the number of the devil's minions is limited, the Lord is stretching those resources by having thousands upon thousands of birthings occur at the same time.

We are close to the ending of this year, with Rosh Hashanah beginning the Fall Feasts the evening of September 18 - 50 days away. This is the same number of days between Passover (deliverance) and Pentecost (supernatural provision through fresh fire and wind of the Spirit). Since the Fall Feasts represent our awakening/cleansing (Trumpets), passing inspection under the Shepherd's rod (Day of Atonement), leading to celebrating with God in the midst of His glory and presence (Tabernacles), I see the significance and connection of these next 50 days.

We are now entering a great acceleration in this time of transition called "Dire Straits" (for Israel but also the church) - a very narrow place where we cannot turn around to go back to the old but where we are pressed to go forward into the new, larger place (spiritually, and naturally for some). Yes, the battle is very intense for those who are determined to cooperate with all that God wants to do in and through them.

It is imperative for the fulfillment of our divine destiny that we say "YES!" to everything the Lord shows us - things to receive and things to let go of. Many of us have been "wrestling" through the night and awaking very tired because we are both contending with the enemy and interacting with God as He is showing us things that weigh us down that He wants to remove at this time.

PROPHETIC ENCOURAGEMENT I hear the Lord saying, "Call out to me - just call out My name - and I will show you things that will give you strength to continue...things that you do not recognize or understand. I am visiting My people in the night seasons to bypass the filters of human reasoning to establish new ways of thinking (new wineskins). Prepare your heart each night with an expectation to meet with Me while you sleep. I do see the uncertainty and difficulty that you are going through, but I am coming to you to shine My light upon your deepest parts to bring My divine order into your life - just as I did at creation (Gen 1).

I have chosen this generation to live supernaturally in these end times. I am calling you to agree with Me about your need to move to a higher level of faith and dependence upon only Me so that you will do the exploits that I have written in your Book in Heaven. This is far beyond the human reasoning capabilities that I placed in you, and now is the time to take this leap as you press through this narrow place of transition.

For when you simply call out My name in your time of need and uncertainty, you are immediately positioned at My throne of grace, where I will impart My incomparable mercy and grace (divine ability) so I can fulfill My plans and purposes for your life. When you cry out to Me as a child to his Father and I respond, that sound of agreement reverberates in Heaven and earth and causes a rumbling that rolls away the stones your enemies have placed within your well...as with Jacob's wells...My well of living water within you.

Yes, I am surely coming as your Deliverer in the night seasons to reverse your captivity and release My health and healing that you have been unable to do through all of your own efforts, the things you have used as a defense against the enemy (v4). As you call out to Me in your need, I will cure you and reveal the abundance of truth and peace - My prosperity, security, stability - for I am reshaping your spiritual identity, rebuilding and re-engineering you to withstand all of the assaults of the enemy in this next war season.

For you are My mighty threshing machine that I have saved for these times through My manifold wisdom. You will be to Me a name of joy, a praise and a glory before all who will hear your amazing testimonies of My saving grace and power that unlocks all the good within you. You will sing again a new song by My Spirit, says the Lord - the voice of joy and gladness...the voice of the bride and the bridegroom...joined with the voices of thanksgiving from the rest of My Body...filling the earth with My victory cry!

For you are truly all one Body - not the disjointed and separated church that man has turned it into - you are My Body, and I AM your head. My thoughts and ways are higher than your thoughts and ways, but now is the time to submit your mind to the mind of Christ so you will think My thoughts from the simultaneous beating of our hearts as one. I AM your shepherd, and you are My sheep...sheep that are passing again under My hand for inspection to remove all that hinders My complete love from manifesting in your life. I want you to know without any doubt that I will fulfill the good promise I have made to you as I execute justice and righteousness in the land.

The Lord says, I AM your righteousness...this is your name...this is who you are. You will recall that righteousness is My scale for executing justice as I offered Abraham for sparing Sodom and Gomorrah. As you allow this realignment within you, greater righteousness will come forth as a peaceable fruit with a new fragrance and flavor for My new wine for this season.

Because of My everlasting covenant with you, pleasant waters and pastures await you to dwell in...the places of My refreshing and restoration that are yours when you simply abide in Me. But you must learn to abide in a deeper way so My supernatural fruit will manifest within you and multiply to those around you. So cease from your labors, your own efforts of trying to understand all that is happening to you. Come to Me even in the night seasons, and I will give you rest for your souls as you experience a new freedom for deeper dependence and oneness with Me, says the Lord."

Please read for yourself Jeremiah 33:1-4; 6-9; 11-16; 25-26 so God can show you even more things that you do not know! May His abundance be manifested within you today!

Mucho amor,
