Word of the Month- January 2011
While in prayer a few days ago God took me into an encounter and showed me several islands and island nations that would see an outpouring of God's power this year. I saw a great harvest of souls as people returned to the Lord in these places. I also saw that there would be mighty demonstrations of God's power as some begin to operate with and under the seven Spirits of God. The Lord told me it is Isaiah 11:11,
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
The Lord told me that he was releasing a double portion of His hand (11:11) on the islands of the earth this year. God's hand is the hand of salvation, redemption, restoration, and power. Gods hand is Jesus Christ. The Rod of God is going to shoot forth and bear fruit in these places this coming year. Isaiah 11:1 amplified and Jeremiah 1:11-12,
AND THERE shall come forth a Shoot [a rod KJV] out of the stock of Jesse [David's father], and a Branch out of his roots shall grow and bear fruit.
Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree. Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.
With the Rod of God comes great authority and ability to operate and be mantled with the seven Spirits of God. It also brings great humility, righteousness and justice. There is a fresh mantling coming in this New Year. Isaiah 11:2-5,
And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
I saw a Great Awakening taking place over many of the islands as God released great faith to move in Kingdom power; even great faith to raise the dead. John 11:11 and Revelation 11:11,
He said these things, and then announced, "Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep. I'm going to wake him up."
And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
There is going to be great declarations and demonstrations of the Faith of God coming from these places (Heb. 11:1). God is going to show His people the works of His power and release them to retrieve the heritage that He has had stored up over their lands.
He has declared to His people the power of His works, in giving them the heritage of the nations. Psalms 111:6
but the land which you cross over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water from the rain of heaven, a land for which the Lord your God cares; the eyes of the Lord your God are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year Deuteronomy 11:11-12
Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power. 2 Thessalonians 1:11
