Prophecy: 7 Abilities for a New Agility in This New Era

by | Aug 3, 2022 | Prophetic Fire, Prophetic Insight, Spirit-Led Living

The Lord first began speaking to me about the release of seven abilities for a new agility early this year. By springtime, I had four of the seven items and, although I kept praying to receive the rest, I didn’t hear any more.

Then several weeks ago the Lord directed me to read the book of Acts, and to pay special attention to chapter 3. As I began to do this the Holy Spirit impressed on me that the last of the seven items would be revealed in the book of Acts.

Friends, I truly believe the release of these seven abilities has been reserved for such a time as this, and those who read this with an open heart will receive an impartation of these even now today.

Just the Right Time

I once heard Dutch Sheets bring a powerful message from Acts chapter 3. Verses 1-10 contain a fascinating story of a beggar who was healed by the apostle Peter. This man was lame and was carried daily to beg by the temple gate called Beautiful. It’s apparent that Jesus must have passed by this beggar many times, but He never called him forth to be healed. Yet when Peter and John passed by and the beggar asked them for money, Peter responded by taking him by the hand, and he was instantly made whole! (v. 7-8)

The prophetic insight contained in this story in intriguing. Jesus healed all who asked, and He also moved in accordance with what He heard His Father saying and doing. It follows, then, that He did not move to heal this man because He did not hear the Father telling Him to do so. I believe that Jesus did not heal the beggar because it was not the appointed time, according to God’s larger and greater plan.

According to Strong’s (#5611) the word Beautiful (which the temple gate was called where the beggar lay) does not mean beautiful in the sense of pleasing to the eye, as we would ordinarily assume. Instead, it means: belonging to the right hour or season (timely), i.e. (by implication) flourishing; or good timing. In other words, beautiful as in the sense of—isn’t it beautiful when a plan comes together at just the right time.

What came together at just the right time was a harvest, for the beggar’s healing sent shockwaves into the community. Ultimately, this caused the number of believers to be increased by almost two thousand souls (Acts 3:11; 2:41, 47; 4:4)!

In this new era, here’s what I feel is coming together at just the right time—not just any harvest …A global harvest.

7 Abilities

Here are the seven abilities as the Lord gave them to me:

1. Grace – Strong’s (#5485) indicates this word refers to God freely extending Himself (His favor, grace), reaching (inclining) to people because He is disposed to bless (be near) them. When this first ability was given to me the Lord revealed it included the grace required to be that new creation, and the ability to let go of the old and not look back, as when the Israelites longed for the leeks, onions and garlic that they had left behind (2 Cor. 5:17; Num. 11:4-6).

I also had a vision of a guy who was going to commit a mass shooting in a public place, and then decided not to and turned around and left. I believe this represents another facet of this grace extended to us. (Continue reading this prophetic word here).
