It has been a while, brothers and sisters! Astonishing and horrible things have happened all around the world this past month. As someone living in a country that actively welcomes refugees from the Ukraine, everything that is happening on the east side of the continent feels much more real to me now than it might have been elsewhere. These past three weeks have been a mixture of a) working together with brothers and sisters in Christ to open up spaces to receive new Ukrainian friends, b) processing a series of dreams about the nations, c) searching God for understanding on the sudden decline of my own health, and d) leading the RESURRECTION bible study (FYI: you can still join!). Sounds like much, but God had already told me at the end of last year that I would be “sprinting” in March and April 2022 and to get ready for it, so I keep running; but you are welcome to pray for me for healing, faithful perseverance and steadfast love! Thank you so much!
Here are some impressions I had during prayer:
- God is pouring out a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy as in Zechariah 12:10 right now so that a fountain may be opened for us to cleanse us from sin and uncleanness (Zechariah 13:1). This is happening in the Ukraine. In Russia. Everywhere. It is time for this. Receive this spirit for your unbelieving friends and family! If you are an intercessor, I encourage you to spend some time repenting on behalf of cities and nations as the Holy Spirit leads you, because the harvest is ripe, the harvest is now. God also highlighted Ezekiel 9:4 to me: “Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it.” He is looking for those.
- I hear there is going to be a blast in relationships over the next few months (March-May 2022). Old acquaintances are going to renewed and above all else, people are going to be plugged into congregations! Ask the Lord if the timeline of this prophesy aligns with yours, so that you may trust and receive or reject and wait for another timing. It is not your fault if you are still lonely without congregation around June, the time just has not come for you yet.
- God is guarding over us. I do not say this lightly to evoke some positive emotion. It is a declaration of truth. I hear the Lord is guarding over us and placing His angels around us 24/7.
- The end-time prophecies are being fulfilled. I am not saying that Jesus is coming this year; but the end-time prophecies in the Bible which remain unfulfilled are being fulfilled. This is obvious, of course, but it serves as a reminder that everyone is affected, not just Israel (yes, Israel, not Ukraine. In the end, it will be about Israel). If you feel led, you can spend some time going through the chapters in the Bible which contain such prophecies. May He give you strategic prayer points as you read and give you advice in how to prepare specifically for emergency situations. Moreover, thank God for a steadfast, persevering spirit among our persecuted brothers and sisters at this hour! We prophesy everlasting life over them as they choose to remain faithful unto death!
Stay tuned for more!
