What an incredible season we are living in in the Body of Christ! I believe with all my heart that as believers we are living in the greatest time to be alive in human history. I believe many of the great cloud of witnesses longed to live in the day and the hour in which we live.
In previous letters to you this year, I have stated how encouraged I am in what I saw God doing in our nation. I believe we are not just in the initial stages of global outpouring in our own nation, but in the nations of the earth. In my first international trip of 2018 to the nations of Germany and Switzerland, I continued to be encouraged by the hunger of the people of God and the accelerated outpouring of the Holy Spirit. One leader observed that what is taking place in Switzerland is similar to what He experienced in the early days of the Toronto blessing.
What I have experienced thus far in 2018 is, I believe, at least a partial confirmation and manifestation of some of the prophetic word God revealed to me as we entered 2018. I want to share and highlight this particular prophetic word to you:
This will be a season of divine acceleration. I am releasing a grace to accelerate the assignments which I have called my people to in this season. My children’s hands will be hands of great multiplication in this season. Expand your thinking beyond simply enough, or what you can do with your talents, or what you can do with your own strength. See every work that you are doing in my name and on behalf of me. See it through the lenses of grace for acceleration and multiplication. I am the God of grace. I am the God of increase. I am the God who makes all grace abound. I am
accelerating. My desire is to take some of my children from the dirt track to the racetrack, to accelerate the purposes of God on their life and calling.
This is indeed a season of divine acceleration. Accelerate means to increase the rate or speed of something. I believe God is accelerating the work of His Spirit and desiring His divine power to flow through His body across the globe in what has not been seen in Church history. His desire is to go beyond even the fruit that the primitive Church experienced. I believe it is increasingly important in this season of acceleration to examine ourselves be sure that we have built and are building our lives on the correct foundation. (2 Corinthians 13:5) Here are some simple areas that I personally examine myself at least weekly if not daily:
Am I making the daily decision to seek God’s Kingdom first? (Matthew 6:33)
Am I being intentional in my life of fellowship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? (John 17:3)
Am I placing God in every situation in which I currently find myself? (John 17:21)
Am I holding offense or un-forgiveness towards any group or any individual? (Matthew 6:15) o Am I embracing the mind of God for myself on a continual basis? (1 Corinthians 2:16)
I want to encourage you to allow the Holy Spirit to guide you into allowing your foundation to be firm and stable so that you will be able as an individual and as a family to fully embrace the Spirit of acceleration in the earth. Thank you for your continued support and love for the Kingdom of God and the mandate God has placed upon my life!
Thank you again for your continued support of this ministry!
