Prophecy: ‘Now Is the Time for Acceleration’

by | Jun 27, 2018 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

The Lord illuminated this to me while I was in a time of corporate prayer and fasting with the group of women who are going to do a revival in Costa Rica in December. These words are a global word, not just one for the team that I was in prayer with. In obedience, I share with you as He illuminated, “Now is the time for acceleration. Things will move quickly in the earth for kingdom acceleration. This is not a time to be lazy. If you are tired, find rest in your souls with Me (God) as you walk circumspect.”

Ephesians 5:14-17 (KJV) reads:

“Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.”

The word circumspectly in Greek means to walk exactly and diligently, and it comes from a root word in Greek akribestatos, which means most exact, straightest.

Yes, we are to walk straight. Then God said, “The path to take is right in front of you, straight and narrow, straight ahead.”

You see, obedience is better than sacrifice. God says this path “will be a road of honoring Me and relationships in kingdom that have authority.”

He warns, that there will be paths to the right or left, but do not take those.

Take the path in the front. You may see a fork in the road, but go straight.

In other words, God says straight is the pathway of diligence, character and refinement, it is a path where you will have to watch your flesh and be obedient. It is a place where you will have to ask yourself, “Am I obeying God here and operating in character and honor?” If you can answer yes, then it is a straight path.

2 Peter 1:3-11 (NIV) reads:

“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these He has given us His very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins. Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

God wants us to walk circumspect operating in His divine power and nature which is within us. If we operate in His divine nature we will bring forth the character traits listed above by the apostle Peter. In doing so, we will continue to be effective and productive for the kingdom of God. Let’s make our calling and election sure and respond circumspectly with His divine nature while we will walk straight paths and receive His blessings.

It was further illuminated to me to, “Put out your hand I am putting things in your hand now on this path. Receive these gifts. Receive the favor, I am giving you favor with people and resources to help you move forward. These blessings will fall on you, receive them and use them, but move quickly. It is a time to accelerate now and not wait. Keep yourself moving.”

The world is trying to slow down during the summer or even rest, not for you who have kingdom mandates, for it is a time to walk and move forward in divine nature, a time for your acceleration to submit to the Kingdom of God, as you have been placed strategically in this time and hour for destiny!

God says, “I will give you the strength to walk at this pace.” Keep these words in mind as you move ahead in obedience, walking circumspectly, during this time of acceleration! {eoa}
