"LET THE REDEEMED ARISE!" A prophetic word for 2021
Wow, I cannot believe we have entered 2021!! What a year we have gone through! I know there have been many ups and downs this past year and many disappointments and uncertainties have come. Through it all I know we can all look back this past year and see how faithful God has been. He is faithful and His word never changes! His promises are true! The last couple of weeks I’ve been feeling a word reside in my spirit and that word is “Redeemed!” I’ve had to sit on it for a little bit to understand how God was speaking that specifically. This last week I have been stirred in many ways and I keep hearing “LET THE REDEEMED ARISE!” We are the Redeemed Bride of Christ! We have been bought with a price and set free from our past mistakes, failures, sin and death! Jesus completed this work when He died for us on the cross! The enemy has been trying to lie this year like never before and he’s been using our past! He wants to pull people backwards and hinder FUTURE! Our future is at stake right now! Our future, our children’s future and their children’s future!! What God is about to do is going to affect generations to come! The enemy has been trying to take out the worshipers, encouragers, preachers and basically anyone called to bring life and truth to their circle of influence. The enemy wants us to dwell on our past instead of focusing on our future because this year our future has come up against a brick wall. Everything has been put on hold for a moment in time. God is using this reset to do His work and put our eyes back on Him and make His bride ready! The crushing we have felt is that of His wine press. He is allowing the crushing to turn us into new wine and that will not work in old wine skins. He has to get rid of the old. When God crushes, the purpose is to produce life, move us forward, shift our direction at times and move us to needed change. Anything that has hindered us moving forward, brought fear, distraction, confusion, anger, regret and sin is not from Him and He is rooting it out of our lives! We cannot enter the new by holding onto the old! We need new wineskins to be able to hold the outpouring that’s ahead. The enemy has tried to bring much torment this last year using our past regrets, shame, confusion and FEAR. We need to call it like it is and be done with it! Nothing that the enemy speaks is true. It’s a twisting of what’s true. He tries to twist truth so that our perception of God and the way He does things becomes confused. Anything that brings condemnation, fear, hopelessness and confusion is NOT of God! As the REDEEMED bride of Christ, our job is to hold onto the Truth of God’s word and realize that our future is secure in Christ because we are new creations in Him! Our past is dead and gone! The new has come!! God doesn’t hold our past against us in any way! He redeems it! The mistakes that we have made will not stop God’s purpose right now unless we allow the past to still have a place. We need to recognize and stop entertaining the enemy’s thoughts, words and attempts in our lives. Thoughts like “if I had only done that with my kids maybe they’d be living differently now” , “ if I had only saved more money”, “ if I had only been different in my marriage”, “why did God allow that situation?” “If I had only chosen that direction instead of this one” and on and on it can go. Do we not know that God is greater than our mistakes? He is the Creator! He makes something out of nothing! He makes streams in dry lands and parts the sea! There is nothing our God cannot do! Repent this year of past unbelief and allowing doubt and fear to come in and for believing the lies that the enemy has been coming to you with. Remember how Great our God is! There is nothing that He cannot do and nothing too hard or too far gone for Him! The focus of our church this year is OUTPOURING! The Spirit of God is coming and nothing will stop Him. The ones that have held on and continue to hold on during this turbulent time have a great place in the outpouring that is coming. God is not finished. He has just begun. The years that the swarming locusts have stolen are about to be restored to the ones that have held on and not given up! The Worship and Words that go out from this point have a new life and anointing upon them. It’s an “Ushering” anointing! What is offered from the REDEEMED from this point on I believe is USHERING in something we have never experienced before! God is on the move and we need to keep moving with Him! Do not let the enemy distract your purpose right now with thoughts of past failures, disappointments and regrets! LET IT GO! This year is going to bring much healing to the body of Christ and from that healing we are going to be able to proclaim and show people like never before what it truly means to be REDEEMED! God wants to redeem your unsaved loved ones. He wants to redeem situations and relationships that have gone wrong. He wants to Redeem your finances. He wants to Redeem your health! He wants to Redeem those places where the enemy has stolen from you! God wants us living healthy and whole in Him, mind, body and spirit! Allow Him to continue the work He’s begun in you. He is not doing it to harm. He’s doing it to bring new life! The redeemed are called to ANNOUNCE His coming!
“I will help you. I am the Lord, your REDEEMER. I am the holy one of Israel. You will be a NEW threshing instrument with many sharp teeth. You will tear your enemies apart, making chaff of mountains. You will toss them into the air, and the wind will blow them all away. A whirlwind will scatter them. Then you will rejoice in the Lord. You will glory in the holy one of Israel!!” Isaiah 41:14-16
“Forget the former things, do not dwell upon the past. See I am doing a new thing. Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland!” Isaiah 43:18-19
This means that anyone who belongs in Christ has become a NEW person. The old life has gone, a new life has begun! And all of this is a gift from God who brought us back to Himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to Him!
“For God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors. God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead “Come Back to God!” 2 Corinthians 5:17-20
