Word for Melbourne from 2009
“We are going to see moves of God unprecedented throughout the earth, and we are seeing something begin in Melbourne. The awakening has begun! I believe it will get to a place in Melbourne when a window will open over Melbourne and we will start to pull down things out of heaven. It’s happening right now! We are in the season! The water level’s up to our course!
We need to deliberately make decisions to walk deliberately forward into a move of the Spirit.
We need to start preparing for the way of the Lord right now.
We need to start getting together.
We need to start praying.
We need to start worshipping.
We need to start planning.
We need to start training people.
We need to come to a place where the Lord is speaking to us about things that are unprecedented and we are able to hear – outrageous things.
God is doing something here unprecedented in your history. It’s simply your day and it’s your time, and you must make the most of it.
We are in those times, a move of God, unprecedented in this city’s history, churches coming together…
We are going to see the end of turf wars.
We are going to see unprecedented cooperation, and incredibly…
We are going to see leaders – men and women of God, just broken by the love, and the beauty and the joy of the Lord, open to the majesty and the sovereignty of heaven, coming and saying ‘I want to give this up, I want to lay this down at the feet of Jesus. I want to give back to God that which belongs to Him.’
We are going to see the business community step up into a different anointing.
We are going to see the map of the city redrawn spiritually. We are going to see people who live in an area, evangelising that area. And it won’t matter what church you come from. We are going to find house to house, street to street, moves of God. We are going to get Christian neighbours coming together and just moving down their street and seeing signs and wonders, it’ll be unprecedented. It is not going to be a move of God that’s led by superstars. It will be nameless, faceless generation of people getting out there on the street, and no one is able to highjack it. It’s a move of God at grassroots’ level.
There is a place of surrender in all of that – where we are surrendering to the love, and the majesty, to the beauty and sovereignty of God. So there is an intimacy that is going to come into the city; the love of God is shed on the streets; the peace of God coming on the city.
It’s time to move out and go to a deeper place still. It’s time to sit down before the Lord and just ask, ‘What’s the abundance that’s beyond thinking?’ God is doing something here unprecedented in your history. It’s simply your day and it’s your time, and you must make the most of it.
This is the day of the Lord. This is the season of God. We are in an outrageous time and the move of God. It’s the stuff of dreams.
We are going to learn how to stand. We are going to learn how to fight for the city. We are going to fight in a new way. As we stand together, as we walk together, as we cooperate together in unprecedented ways, a window will open in heaven. When you pray that window will open. We are going to have permission. The Lord is going to say, “you are to come together with one heart and one voice in the city. We are going to see an eldership in the city raised up, with oversight.”
THE CHALLENGE: Make some deliberate decisions to commit to prayer, preparation and training so we are able to move forward together with God and each other in the imminent revival.
