Prophetic Word: The Lord Is Saying, ‘It’s Time to Birth!’

The Eruption of New Ministries and Movements

God is birthing new ministries and movements between now and the end of 2018 that will be catalytic and reformational. I saw people at a crossroads, but it wasn’t a roadblock; it was a birthing. It was the culmination of years of surrender to the process that had brought them to a place where it was either launch out or retreat. The problem I saw was this: many are seeing the closed doors behind them and identifying this place as an “end of the road” instead of “the doorway to the new day.”

Watch for Sudden Downloads

Heavenly downloads are about to come frequently and rapidly as the floodgates of heaven open up over where you have felt stunted, because in 2019 God will launch you out onto the waters with the blueprints He has given you. This is where your theory turns into reality. You can’t stay in a place of only dreaming and wishing and hoping. This is where it manifests. This is where the rubber meets the road. Watch for these sudden downloads. God is speaking in dreams and getting your attention through any means possible.

Alignment Shifts

God isn’t ending relationships as much as they are evolving. People who were your keys in past seasons won’t be any longer. They will be colleagues and life-friends. God is opening up a new realm of kingdom family that will be the key to your longing and also advancement. I see handshakes taking place that will be significant for thrusting you forward, but they will be relational, not opportunistic. God wants to surround you with a people who don’t just value your giftings but your heart. Watch for how He brings these people across your path!

New Wineskin Blueprints

You have noticed a certain dissatisfaction on certain activities and methods you once lived by, because God is giving you a new wineskin so He can pour out the new wine upon your life. The grace period is coming up on the old road and old ways, and God has been giving you the keys to move forward. He is upgrading your grid and infrastructure for the future so you can build into something that has room to grow, not an infrastructure that has reached its maximum capacity (photo via Wikimedia Commons).

Hybrid Ministries

These “Hybrid ministries,” which is what I heard, will be a hybrid of anointings that are like mixtures of different costly oils, that when they come together, they bring about a new fragrance and effect. They will be used beyond the walls of the church and operate beyond the separation of streams. They will come with a new gusto and freshness that will set the torch to flickering hearts and raise the stakes for the church. The combination of these anointings had a catalytic effect on where they were released. Not just awakening, but revival and awakening. Not just prayer, but evangelistic action.

Vacancies and Openings

I saw a job advertisement sign like a kingdom governmental vacancy. There are new openings in cities and in regions, so the Lord will move people in this next season. Export will increase, and cross-pollination will increase, which will bring about greater unity and explosive communities that transform their cities in ways we haven’t seen before.

The shifting you are feeling is the heavens and the earth quaking as mighty movements are arising. What defines movements is that the Lord is uniting ministries and streams together for specific kingdom causes on the earth. We will see unexpected collaboration with different church denominations that have come from previous movements.

Unusual Open Doors

The new ministries being birthed are weighty and strategic because they carry new facets and expressions of the Father’s heart not seen in the earth. Those birthing them have been through much fire and wilderness to get to this point. I saw a season of closed doors and being misunderstood, but there is a new and noticeable favor that will not only open the way but turn the hearts of those in opposition into allies.

In the past seasons, you may have encountered closed doors, but God is swinging open unusual and unique doors that you wouldn’t have seen or recognized as the Lord in the past. The package is different, but it will accomplish more.

Acceleration and Multiplication

“Thanks for waiting for Me to open the door!” says the Lord. You had plenty of opportunity to push and make things happen but you stayed in His timing, and now it’s unraveling and accelerating quickly. Many have been sitting and waiting for the right moment, processing and waiting for the green light, but in the next few months you will wake up one day to “Go, go, go, go, go!”

It’s Time to Birth!

Recently in worship, I had an encounter where the Holy Spirit came upon me powerfully, and I felt my spirit burning deep as if I was in childbirth. The Holy Spirit said, “I am breaking open the womb of the church!” Those who have been in labor for too long without seeing the manifestation, those who have been pregnant but have never seen the promise fulfilled, are about to see it with their own eyes. God is moving upon your womb and saying, “It’s time to birth!”

I want to prophesy over you today that what God has placed inside you is not insignificant but mighty, and if you have felt barren, it’s time to be fruitful. I prophesy that the ministry God has ordained for you would be launched and unleashed in this season in Jesus’ name.
