Breakthrough Into Momentum

If 2012 was about alignment, then 2013 can be summed up as breakthrough and momentum. There is an acceleration into the fullness of the Spirit and the purposes of God in the U.K. and Europe. The fullness of Kingdom prosperity is manifesting as previous seasons of impartations and prophetic words come into harvest. The momentum that breaks throughout this year is only going to increase...

The prophetic word is such a powerful weapon in the Kingdom of God. The Spirit is faithful to reveal to the Church the plans and purposes the Father has to extend the Kingdom of Heaven in the earth. Amos 3:7 gives us the promise that He will reveal to His prophets His purposes before acting on them. The reality is that the government of God is ever increasing, and so we can live in the expectation of insights in order to align ourselves with what He is about to do.

The response to the prophetic is just as vital as receiving it. The seed of the prophetic word contains the resources and prosperity of God necessary to see it fulfilled, and when acted upon unleashes the potential of that word (see Ezra 6:14). What a privilege it is to receive and to act on the words of the Spirit. We are encouraged to search out such matters, and it is to the delight of the Father that the Bride of Christ moves in clarity of vision, confidence, and the unlimited resources of His Kingdom.

2012 was a year where many were in preparation for alignment. Significant commissioning, prophetic words, and alliances were released and established throughout the year. The Spirit of God has been drawing the Church into deepened hunger during the months of October through to December. Many were driven into the wilderness where preparations were coming to a head. These people, like Jesus, are returning in the power of the Spirit for such a time as this. The greatest revival to manifest on the earth has been widely prophesied and expected.

Harvest always begins at the death of the seed. There has been a significant stripping and dying-to-self manifesting throughout the Body of Christ, and this has indicated the firstfruits of the greatest hour the Church has been in. Harvest always finds its beginnings under the ground, and the secret place has been the fertile ground where significance has been birthed.

Breakthrough Into Momentum

The Spirit of God declares that those things established in the secret place are to be made visible in the earth. Many have been questioning where the fruit of their call and purpose is. There have been many prophetic words and impartations that appear to lay dormant in their hearts. The secret place times were not in vain. 2013 will begin to manifest the firstfruits of these prophetic words and impartations, and these are to continue throughout the years that are ahead. The Spirit of God is harvesting you in season, and it brings good pleasure to the Father to see you produce fruit. Lift up your eyes and see that the field of your life is white unto harvest.

There have been limitations placed on the seed up until now. A premature harvest stunts the potential fruit. These seeds were entrusted for a specific time and place. The Lord is bringing the increase! Now is the time to respond to the words that have been spoken. As you begin to move and place a demand on the decrees of Heaven over your life, opportunities will present themselves to you. For several years now the phrase "unprecedented expectation releases unprecedented opportunity" has been reverberating in my spirit. As in Ezra 6, there is a blessing that is contained in responding to the prophetic in season.

Kingdom Prosperity

Psalm 65 contains a prophetic sound for the U.K. and Europe. It is a sound that declares the goodness of God.

The Body of Christ is invited into the experiential knowledge of His presence that releases the prosperity of His house:

"Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man whom You choose and cause to come near, that he may dwell in Your courts! We shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, Your holy temple" (Psalm 65:4).

There is to be a demonstration of Kingdom prosperity that will come into direct conflict with the poverty spirit that has had a stronghold in the Body. Those who dwell in the courts of God are to be offensively favoured and will prosper in unprecedented measures. God is prospering through resources, opportunities, anointing, authority, and influence. The poverty spirit limits the expectation and the flow of the Kingdom, and this goes beyond finance. It struggles to come to terms with the abundance of health, favour, authority, influence, and victory. Rooted in always being the victim, the poverty mindset attempts to limit an expectation for the impossible and comes into direct conflict with the culture of abundance that Heaven possesses. The Bride of Christ is victorious and is to walk in that victory.

2013 will be crowned with His goodness, and His paths drip with abundance (see Psalm 65:11). Step into a fresh level of expectation. If you make plans according to the paths that He has set for you, then your way will drip with His abundance rather than being governed by the poverty spirit that makes plans according to limitations. The sound of Heaven is one of victorious living, ruling, and reigning in the blessing of Heaven in Christ (see Ephesians 1:3). The Spirit of God will favour and prosper individuals so that they become signs and wonders to the rest of the Body, provoking them to pursue the intimacy and fullness of His presence. Psalm 67:1-2 tells us that when God's face shines upon us, blessing us, that His ways and salvation are made known on earth. The light of His presence and the abundance that comes through intimacy impacts the world around us.

Momentum For U.K. & Europe

The Spirit of God highlighted to me that the U.K. and Europe are poised for increased visitations of God's presence and power. 2013 is to see the building of momentum in cities across the nation and continent as the Kingdom of God is established through encounter and demonstrations of the rule of Christ. There is a significant increase in healing and the miraculous in the days ahead that is to invoke a sound of praise that will filter throughout the region: "To You belongs silence (the submissive wonder of reverence which bursts forth into praise) and praise is due and fitting to You" (Psalm 65:1).

There has been a simmering of presence over the land that is set to erupt as those who have been in the secret place are released into harvest. The Spirit of God is to visit the earth and water it, greatly enriching it (see Psalm 65:9). I saw in the Spirit the release of lightning over the U.K. and Europe. The Lord is "[covering] His hands with the lightning and commands it to strike the mark. Its crashing declares His presence" (Job 36:32-33).

I saw the lightnings of God being carried by individuals of intimacy. The Spirit brought to my attention that the call to intimacy and worship is the "rhema" decree that releases the experience of His presence. As I saw the prophetic call being decreed, His presence was established. The Lord is releasing the laid down lovers of Christ to lead the Body into a revival of intimacy. This is the beginning of a momentum that will see a revival where the manifest presence of Christ is restored in the midst of the Bride.

Re-Digging the Wells of Inheritance

Whilst meditating on what the Lord was showing me, the Spirit showed me Habakkuk 3:2: "O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years...make it known." Revival is the Bride being positioned to prosper in the fullness of Christ.

The Spirit then led me to Genesis 26 where Isaac was re-digging the wells of his father Abraham. After digging three wells, Isaac moves on to Beersheba and it is here that the Lord confirms the covenant that He made with Abraham. "So he built an altar there and called on the name of the Lord, and he pitched his tent there and [his] servants dug a well" (Genesis 26:25). Abimelech, the king of the Philistines, approaches Isaac to make an oath with him as he certainly saw that the Lord was with him " are now the blessed of the Lord" (Genesis 26:28-29).

As Isaac re-dug the wells of heritage, the blessing of the Lord became visible to his enemies. After contention with the Philistines over the first two wells, Isaac experienced a revival of prosperity at "Rehoboth," meaning "room to be fruitful." Yet there was more for Isaac. Isaac's servants then informed him that water had been found, and he called it "Shebah," the well of seven (see Genesis 26:33). The reaffirmation of the covenant with Abraham came at the place called the "well of seven."

I am reminded of an encounter I had in 2009 at Revival Fires in Dudley, U.K. As I was worshipping, I saw an empty valley. As I looked into the horizon of this valley I noticed a torrent of water gushing around a corner and heading straight for me. The water was travelling at such a pace. Riding on the top of the raging river were seven high-powered motorbikes with seven big, angelic beings. As they were about to hit me, I heard Trevor Baker say, "Receive it." Moments later, I am picking myself up off the floor, two rows back...

I have held onto this encounter for three years, and the Spirit of God has quickened it. There is a fullness of heritage that we have been positioned to re-dig. There is a reservoir of the miraculous, revelations and encounters, resources and strategic favour. These are being presented to the Bride through the experiential knowledge of the seven Spirits of God.

There is acceleration into the fullness of the Spirit, the revival of prosperity. The scene is set for the greatest hour the Church has ever walked in. The Lord specifically showed me the anointing that William Branham walked in that is to manifest on a corporate level. The momentum has begun and it will continue to pick up pace; the fullness of the river of God is moving across the land.

"...The river of God is full of water..." (Psalm 65:9). "Along the bank of the river...will grow all kinds of trees... they will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary" (Ezekiel 47:12).

The secret place has birthed a people walking in the prosperity of Heaven. They are walking in increasing measures of life in the Spirit, releasing and establishing His Kingdom. There is such acceleration in supernatural activity over cities that we are rapidly moving towards the fulfilment of Amos 9:13:

"'Behold, the days are coming', says the Lord, 'that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine and all the hills shall melt [that is, everything heretofore barren and unfruitful shall overflow with spiritual blessing].'"
