Prophecy: We Are in a Joseph Moment

by | Apr 19, 2022 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

Recently, these words dropped heavily into my spirit: “We are in a Joseph moment!”

What is a Joseph moment? A Joseph moment is one of great insight, revelation, preparation and turning the enemy’s plans back on him.

After such a long season of feeling inactive, misunderstood, cast off, rejected, and forgotten by God, Joseph was summoned by Pharaoh to interpret a dream no one else could. Essentially, Joseph was called to the palace to fix a problem that the wisest human minds couldn’t — only God could.

Who Will Speak Forth My Solutions?

We are in a time where the earth is facing a myriad of problems and the wisest cannot fix or solve them. But God has been asking the church in this hour, “Who will not just read the newsreel but speak forth My answers, strategies and solutions into the earth?”

The signs of the times are obvious. The enemy wants to destroy the nations, cause wars, tear down godly values and allow wickedness to run rampant. From that place, so many have been prophesying warnings without giving any practical strategy or redemption. What can be averted or counteracted? What can prayer shift? What are the skinny cows of the hour? What can we do to be prepared? We keep either prophesying doom and gloom that feels final or we bury our heads in the sand, pretending the problems don’t exist … but the Josephs know this is their moment.

We Are in a Window of Time

I believe we are in a window of time to hear the wisdom and insight of heaven in order to avert some disasters and prepare ourselves so we aren’t caught as the enemy attempts to strike. It’s a time for God’s mouthpieces to be bold and speak what they see instead of being fearful of sounding like conspiracy theorists or fearmongers. We can deliver insight in complete peace and, in doing so, stir up the church to be one step ahead of the enemy instead of always five steps behind. We have to put our ears to the ground right now; this is our role as those that hear the mysteries and secrets of the Lord’s heart.

God is raising up a Joseph generation to be the deliverers of practical blueprints in the days to come so that we can continue to shine brighter when it seems the world is going through more and more birth pangs.

The Kim Clements of the earth need to come out of hiding. We need to stop being consumed by the propaganda of Jezebel’s prophets that silences us from sharing what God is giving us — that which disarms demonic plans and agendas, exposes plots and future agendas, and reveals the heart of God, bringing hope and a glorious and secure future!

Six Spheres of Shaking That Are Bringing Awakening

In Joseph’s hour there were many areas being shaken, but the food supply was affecting everyone the most, which is why Joseph’s insight enabled them to plan for it. I believe in this hour there are many areas that the enemy is trying to shake which we have the ability to see and pray into, discern, avert, counteract or prepare for.

Here are six areas (I know there are many more) of our day that we need to have conversations about and hear the instruction and word of the Lord to know how to navigate:

  • Consumer shaking: food, water, fuel and supply of other goods.
  • Financial shaking: electronic currency, money laws and global monitoring.
  • Cyber shaking: social media, privacy, surveillance and tracking.
  • Church shaking: trying to keep the church powerless and ineffective or bought by culture.
  • Family values shaking: abortion, gender confusion and the redefining of godly values.
  • Governmental shaking: the handshakes of the elite, hidden plots and plans, and the repercussions; global compliance and control.

With that in mind, what is God showing you? Remember this one big tip: God’s warnings don’t come with fear or panic.

I need to make this abundantly clear. We don’t need to fear any of these things. These are deliberate, demonic, militant moves of the enemy to establish his crumbling and “victory-less” kingdom. It’s his recipe for a new world order in which he is king, orchestrated by his puppets.

His tactics in all of this are intimidation and fear, hoping they make the body of Christ feel powerless and unable to change the storyline. This is where we have been for a long time now — a church that is in prison just like Joseph, feeling misunderstood, ineffective and unable to do anything about it … but we couldn’t be further from the truth of the hour.

Josephs, Arise! It’s Time for the New Kingdom Order

What we see can be thwarted as we rise up, pray, act and move into position. The good part is that in all of these shakings, the enemy ends up revealing his hand, and this leads to awakening. The ones who have been blindly led by the enemy — especially in the last few years — caught up in the virtue signaling of demonic values and sentimentalities are beginning to see it. Eyes are opening. Hearts are raw. People are longing for truth. People are craving the Spirit of God and letting go of the systems of the world. Old wineskin structures and empires are being sifted so that we can shift.

I believe we are entering a time where things will continue to be contested, but we aren’t to lose our peace because God has issued a divine reversal card and is now playing His secret “remnant” card to counteract these demonic plans. This is where He calls forth His Josephs from obscurity into places of influence to change the destiny of situations and nations around the earth. You won’t always hear about this on the news because they will only broadcast the devourer’s activity, but rest assured, God is not silent, and we have never been more engaged, becoming more and more so, to usher in the new kingdom order of Jesus into the earth.

What Was Meant to Harm Us, God Will Use to Increase Us

Lastly, Joseph’s name means “to increase,” and I truly feel that God is going to use what the enemy has waged against the church and against humanity in this time to increase us and bring us into the fullness of this great awakening and harvest. Let’s go!

“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives” (Gen. 50:20, NIV). {eoa}
