GRACE will be the summit and surround this year for God’s people. I believe this will be a year of triple grace; in other words, complete, perfect grace–that of divine fullness and the manifestation of Resurrection power.
Saying that to say this also: 2015 will be a year of tremendous resistance from satan and his dark kingdom. He knows his time is short. There will be great trials, tribulations (pressure) and increase in persecutions. National and world events combined will trouble many so deeply that grieving will be common and deep. GRACE will be a STRONGHOLD in which every Believer must seek refuge because it’s the only refuge of safety that will be found. Religion will offer absolutely no comfort or refuge this year–only relationship with Christ and His Spirit of Grace.
We must understand that GRACE is the source of power not only by which we stand, but by which we are protected as well as produce.
The Walls and Gates of the Stronghold of Grace. When the LORD spoke both of these to me, He was speaking of the walls and gates of the Stronghold of Grace. Walls represent protection and defense; but just as important, if not more so, they speak of the Kingdom of God and enormous power. Gates represent the entering of the Presence of God; also righteousness and salvation. We are called to rebuild the walls and repair the gates this year. And, of course, this is calling for our participation with Holy Spirit as He teaches and directs us.
Into the Presence and away from the pressure. For God’s people, there will be a powerful and passionate drawing from the LORD into His grace. We’ll miss it if we become focused on the devil’s workings and manifestations. This drawing will be a drawing into His Presence where we will find more grace and in that grace there will be deliverance, freedom and REST. This drawing will be the breath of the Holy Spirit–like a breath of fresh air—giving life, relaxing us, bringing us into a restful place that strengthens and increases us. Many will experience a tangible Presence as if they are visiting Heaven itself. We will learn to run into this grace very quickly!
The Spirit of Grace will align and accelerate. I believe there will be a supernatural alignment for God’s true people this year. An alignment with Holy Spirit, Word, truth, with revelation (illumination) which will remove obstacles. As obstacles are removed, alignment will happen and acceleration and speed will be possible.
Lisa Great in her prophetic look at 2015 tells us: “In the Hebrew calendar we are in the year 5775, which is the Year of the Whirlwind. This is going to be a whirlwind year.”
This word spoke to and confirmed what the LORD is dropping in my spirit. There will be sudden change all around. Acceleration, fast, sudden, swift change. This will be for the better/best and for the worse. The end of all things is near, which means the beginning of a culmination of both good and evil. True Believers will prosper in the midst of the whirlwind. Others will be swept up or away in it.
Isaiah 58 is a key this year! Please take time to study and meditate on it. Verse one begins with “. . . Raise your voice like a trumpet!” When I heard this, the LORD had me prophetically raise my voice like a trumpet! Since I am a former trumpet player, this was not difficult for me to do. But, this is a time to trumpet the Word of God–to Proclaim in word, deed and action! “Preach the Word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction,” (2 Timothy 4:2).
Finally, follow the Presence, for you have never been this way before! ( Joshua 3:4).
