Dutch Sheets Prophesies: God Is Turning Things Around

by | Feb 9, 2022 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

America’s turnaround began years ago. God is way ahead of the times, seeing and declaring the end from the beginning (Isa. 46:10).

He is the only individual who doesn’t start at the beginning. God starts at the end, backs up to the beginning and implements His plan. This means He is never caught by surprise or off guard. It also means He knows how He will solve problems…before they even manifest!

Yahweh is not taken back by the failures of people and nations, knowing they would occur beforehand. When He calls a person (or a nation) to a purpose, God realizes He will have to navigate through their mess-ups, just as He did with Abraham and the nation of Israel. According to Hebrews 11:3, God has already decreed the aligning and realigning of the ages. The correct translation (paraphrased) is, “Through faith, we understand that the ages were aligned by the word [declarations] of God…”

Before Adam’s fall, Jesus was the Lamb, slain from the foundation of the world (Rev. 13:8). That means the incarnation, the Cross and Christ’s resurrection were planned before Adam’s fall ever occurred.

A Plan for America’s Turnaround—As in the Days of Esther

I share this to assure you that God has a plan for America’s turnaround. He knew the failures and sins our nation would commit before we committed them and has also declared our turnaround. Satan’s reactionary plans and schemes are no match for God’s omniscience and foreknowledge.

This foreknowledge also means God is moving on many fronts, of course. While He is implementing His preplanned works in America, He is doing so in other nations, in the church and in individuals, preparing them for His plan. When all is ready, He will shift everything into a phase of convergence: ripe harvest fields; nations positioned; the church equipped; angels assigned.

This is all seen in the book of Esther. The Jews’ very existence was threatened when wicked Haman, one of King Ahasuerus’ trusted officials, manipulated the king into issuing a decree for the annihilation of the Jews. Upon learning of Haman’s decree, Esther, a Jewish woman chosen by King Ahasuerus to be his queen, exposed Haman’s plan. She broke protocol to appeal to the king in a courageous attempt to protect her people. The king granted Esther’s request and, instead of the Jews, Haman was executed. The day after Haman’s decree was reversed, the Feast of Purim was inaugurated.

The Hebrew word for turnaround is “haphak,” meaning “overturn,” “overthrow,” “transform” and “be reversed.” The following verses from Esther 9 include this word:

“…when the king’s command and edict were about to be executed, on the day when the enemies of the Jews hoped to gain the mastery over them, it was turned to the contrary so that the Jews themselves gained the mastery over those who hated them.” (v. 1)

“…because on those days the Jews rid themselves of their enemies, and it was a month which was turned for them from sorrow into gladness and from mourning into a holiday; that they should make them days of feasting and rejoicing….” (v. 22)

“But when it came to the king’s attention, he commanded by letter that his wicked scheme, which he had devised against the Jews, should return on his own head and that he and his sons should be hanged on the gallows.” (v. 25)

The Message translation of Esther 9:25 uses a powerful analogy to convey the significance of what transpired: “But when Queen Esther intervened with the king, he gave written orders that the evil scheme that Haman had worked out should boomerang back on his own head …”

God had planned ahead. Before Haman ever conceived his evil plan to destroy the Jews, God aligned people, events and time. The book of Esther is an easy and interesting read—check it out. You will find that God orchestrated events, timing, the choosing of a queen, sleep patterns, favor to individuals, the uncovering of evil plans, rescues and more. The end result was the saving of the nation and the furthering of God’s plans on Earth.

I believe Holy Spirit is doing again this year what He did in Esther’s day. He is moving us into convergence and a time of divine reversals! This is a year of great turnaround, when God intervenes powerfully on behalf of His people, and the enemy is overthrown as his plans boomerang back on his own head!

Of course, the Hebrew word “haphak” is not only found in the book of Esther, but throughout the Scriptures. Deuteronomy 23:5 uses the word to describe the turning of Balaam’s curse over the Jewish people into a blessing. Jeremiah 31:13 and Isaiah 61:3 use the word in reference to turning mourning into joy.

This season’s turnaround will occur for individuals, families, regions and nations. Unrest will certainly continue, and the Scriptures assure us that evil will as well. But great harvest will also occur, and areas of unrest will give way to righteousness—even in the darkest regions. There will be awakening and revivals in places where they have never existed.

We must recognize, however, that the Lord is inviting us to partner with Him in releasing these supernatural boomerangs into the earth. {eoa}
