This Christmas season has a Kairos purpose under heaven. I hear the Lord calling believers to pray and declare His heart as we come into this next season.
In the last two years I have had repeated dreams about Christmas time and something taking place during this season. These past few months I have had repeated words about JOY coming to the Body of Christ in unprecedented manner. I have also heard from numerous intercessors about dreams or visions of being pregnant or a sense of birthing something. All of these things seem to be converging.
The enemy is trying to instill FEAR and UNREST into the heart of this nation as well as other nations around the world. Even many believers are feeling anxious and uncertain about the days to come. There is a heightened longing for something to happen that will displace the enemy’s agenda.
I have been led to this passage which I believe to be a prophetic proclamation we are to declare for THIS time and THIS season:
And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” (Luke 2:10-14, ESV)
THIS is the Father’s desire – for believers to rise up and agree with the angelic host that there is no need to fear. There is GOOD NEWS OF GREAT JOY that is coming to us! This will be a SIGN for all people everywhere. Something is being birthed – the beginnings of revival and transformation.
Jesus already came once in flesh to reveal His humanity, but He is coming again by His Spirit to reveal His power over every ruler and power of this age. He loves to reveal Himself to the least likely, the unknown, the lowly in spirit. He loves to confound the world by showing up in unexpected places. He shows signs in the heavens and WISE MEN try to figure out where He is and what He’s doing here.
When He came the first time, He laid aside His right as a King and became a servant to all. It is this same spirit of humility that will draw heaven back to earth. It is to the pure and humble in heart that the heavens will open. Just as the faithful shepherds were keeping watch over the flock by night, so it is to those who have been faithfully serving and carrying His heart for others in the hidden places that will receive the first-fruits of this supernatural JOY and PEACE.
And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear…(Luke 2:8-10)
The Fear of the Lord is the result of God’s GLORY being revealed. God is about to release a wave of His glory and it will produce the Fear of the Lord and MANY WILL SEEK HIM. To those who have been keeping watch, His glory will be seen readily and it will result in great WONDER and AWE (“…”and all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them.” Luke 2:18).
The season we are entering has great potential to be a season of SIGNS AND WONDERS. But, the Church must rise up and prophesy it! Prophesy about the good news of great joy that is for all people! Do not let fear grip your hearts, but let your mouths be filled with praise and thanksgiving as we anticipate His glory being revealed. It may not come the way we think or expect, but heaven is about to open and come down.
