Are you a Prophet in the Making?



Jennifer LeClaire discusses the making of a prophetic, the difference between prophets and psychics, how prophets face spiritual warfare and other prophetic ministry topics on NBC's Change is in the Air radio broadcast. Click here to shop the Resource on the homepage.

Jennifer said:

I just wanted to make sure you received your FREE video about the Making of a Prophet. It will answer a  lot of questions for you.

This video has been viewed OVER 5,000 times now.... it's helping a lot of people.

God called “some” to be prophets (Ephesians 4:11). 

And Paul asked, “Are all prophets?” (1 Corinthians 12:29).

That means there are relatively few people on the face of the earth who understand the unique challenges of prophets and prophetic people.

I wanted to share this video with you that will give you insights into your calling.

Getting Your New Year’s Revelation from God First

Source: Doug Addison

Many people start thinking about making New Year’s resolutions this time of year.
Have you ever tried to do a New Year’s resolution … but by February you’ve stopped?
Or maybe you have things you want to change in your life but don’t know where to start?
I heard the Lord say, “Get New Year’s revelation from Me for your resolution!”
Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom’s instruction. Proverbs 29:18 NIV

Getting revelation from God can help you cast off restraints and gain clarity.

What this means is you can get a prophetic plan or strategy from the Lord on what area of your life you want to change. Then take practical steps to fulfill it.
If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed. Proverbs 29:18 MSG
Once you get clarity, it shifts the spiritual atmosphere and doors begin to open for you. Then momentum kicks in.

Can you identify with any of these?

  • You know there is something more but you don’t know where to start.
  • You feel stuck in your current situation.
  • You’ve ignored or given up on some of your passions and dreams.
  • You don’t feel released to move on but you want to prepare yourself for what’s next.
  • You have lost hope.
These are common symptoms that show you need a breakthrough in your life.
As we begin looking forward to 2019, there are some simple yet important steps you can take now to help you dream and plan with God.

1. Reflect

It’s difficult to move forward when we haven’t learned from our past experiences. Before setting new goals for 2019, be sure to take some time to pause and reflect on your past year.

2. Renew

Now is the time to decide what sort of commitments you want to continue on into the new year. Decide how you will renew your commitments to your family and relationships. Think about how you can be a better spouse, parent, mentor, sister, brother, friend, employee or employer, etc.
It is doing small things consistently every day that can often bring about the biggest results!

3. Rest

Remember to take time to rest from your labor. Maybe not all of your goals in the previous year came about, but God loves you all the same and will not forget you in this coming new year!
Get ready for the Lord to help bring real change to you in the New Year.
Blessings,

A Time for Healing Divisions and Laying Down the “Club of Love” (engl./german)

Source: Doug Addison

We have been under a time of heavy storms and warfare sent from the enemy of our souls. As I have been saying, this is to distract us from what God is preparing and bringing to the Earth right now.
It is time to believe and not doubt! In the midst of some of the heaviest trials over the past month, I have also been having some of the most amazing encounters with the Lord. I have had to fight the urge to not fully value these encounters because they came with such a high price tag of attack.
This sounds logical, but remember when Peter walked on the water with Jesus? He was also in a time of intense storms, yet in the midst of his amazing supernatural encounter he doubted and began to sink (Matthew 14:22–33 NIV).

Difficult times pay off

In an encounter with the Lord last month, He spoke this verse to me:
“This is what the Lord says: As I have brought all this great calamity on this people, so I will give them all the prosperity I have promised them.” Jeremiah 32:42 NIV
Because we have been through such difficult times and there has been calamity all over the Earth, the justice system of God is now activated. The Lord said, “many people have been through great calamity but now it’s time for me to bring the blessings that I promised.”

Your gates will always stand open, they will never be shut, day or night, so that people may bring you the wealth of the nations—their kings led in triumphal procession.
Isaiah 60:11 NIV
I saw the gates in Heaven opening to release strategic plans and financial blessings. This is not for personal gain or prosperity. This is to help with the global issues we’re dealing with over the storms of the enemy.
Our governments do not have the financial resources to cover the great calamity hitting the Earth. This is why the Lord is going to release financial blessings into churches, businesses, individuals and groups of people.

The Lord is opening the gates of blessing and prosperity for the purposes of helping people in need. There is also a new move of global evangelism coming that will require finances to reach those who are poor and the poor in spirit.
I heard an angel say, “The gates are open! The gates are open! The gates are open!”

Divisions being healed

I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear me and that all will then go well for them and for their children after them. Jeremiah 32:39 NIV
A house divided against itself cannot stand. (Matthew 12:25 NIV) The Lord is now healing divisions and bringing singleness of heart and action to groups of people who are receiving strategies and strategic callings.
There is great spiritual power in agreement. When we agree together, amazing things can happen.
One strategy of the enemy has been to get us divided against each other. It is important to break this attack and come into agreement with the Lord and others in the spirit of unity and love.

Don’t use love as a club

And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:14 

If you want to prepare for what is coming in the new year it will be very important to enter into love. The most important and powerful commandment according to Jesus is to love God, others and ourselves (Matthew 22:37–39 NIV).
God spoke to me that many people are using a “club of love” (meaning they use love wrongly as a weapon). This happens when people are being firm with others while not compromising their own beliefs. Though this is often out of good intentions many people might not realize that wounding others is not love at all. The Lord is calling us to love people unconditionallywithout accepting their beliefs or lifestyles.

It is time to lay down our differences and judgments against people we don’t agree with. We need to put on love and humility. This is why John said:

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:8 NIV
Watch for the Lord to move powerfully in your life over the next few months. As we humble ourselves the Lord will lift us up to new heights.

Blessings,

*********************************************************************
Wir waren in einer Zeit schwerer Stürme und Kriege, die vom Feind unserer Seelen geschickt wurden. Wie ich bereits sagte, soll dies uns von dem ablenken, was Gott gerade vorbereitet und auf die Erde bringt.

Es ist Zeit zu glauben und nicht zu zweifeln! Inmitten einiger der schwersten Prüfungen des letzten Monats habe ich auch einige der erstaunlichsten Begegnungen mit dem Herrn erlebt. Ich musste den Drang bekämpfen, diese Begegnungen nicht voll zu schätzen, weil sie mit einem so hohen Preis verbunden waren.

Das klingt logisch, aber erinnerst du dich, als Petrus mit Jesus auf dem Wasser ging? Er war auch in einer Zeit intensiver Stürme, aber inmitten seiner erstaunlichen übernatürlichen Begegnung zweifelte er und begann zu sinken (Matthäus 14,22-33 NIV).

Schwierige Zeiten zahlen sich aus
In einer Begegnung mit dem Herrn letzten Monat sprach Er diesen Vers zu mir:

"Das ist es, was der Herr sagt. So wie ich all diese große Katastrophe über dieses Volk gebracht habe, so werde ich ihnen all den Wohlstand geben, den ich ihnen versprochen habe." Jeremia 32:42 NIV

Weil wir so schwierige Zeiten durchgemacht haben und es auf der ganzen Erde eine Katastrophe gegeben hat, ist das Justizsystem Gottes jetzt aktiviert. Der Herr sagte: "Viele Menschen haben eine große Katastrophe erlebt, aber jetzt ist es an der Zeit, dass ich den Segen bringe, den ich versprochen habe."

Eure Tore werden immer offen stehen, sie werden nie geschlossen werden, Tag und Nacht, damit die Menschen euch den Reichtum der Nationen bringen können - ihre Könige führten in einer Triumphprozession.
Jesaja 60:11 NIV

Ich sah, wie sich die Tore im Himmel öffneten, um strategische Pläne und finanzielle Segnungen freizugeben. Dies ist nicht für den persönlichen Gewinn oder Wohlstand. Dies ist, um bei den globalen Problemen, mit denen wir es zu tun haben, über die Stürme des Feindes hinweg zu helfen.

Unsere Regierungen verfügen nicht über die finanziellen Mittel, um die große Katastrophe, die die Erde heimsucht, zu decken. Deshalb wird der Herr finanzielle Segnungen in Gemeinden, Unternehmen, Einzelpersonen und Gruppen von Menschen freigeben.

Der Herr öffnet die Tore des Segens und des Wohlstands, um Menschen in Not zu helfen. Es kommt auch ein neuer Schritt der globalen Evangelisation, der Finanzen erfordert, um diejenigen zu erreichen, die arm und arm im Geiste sind.

Ich hörte einen Engel sagen: "Die Tore sind offen! Die Tore sind offen! Die Tore sind offen!"

Spaltungen werden geheilt
Ich werde ihnen die Einheit des Herzens und der Tat geben, damit sie mich immer fürchten und dass dann alles gut für sie und für ihre Kinder nach ihnen verläuft. Jeremia 32:39 NIV

Ein gegen sich selbst geteiltes Haus kann nicht bestehen. Der Herr heilt jetzt Spaltungen und bringt die Einheit des Herzens und der Handlung zu Gruppen von Menschen, die Strategien und strategische Berufungen erhalten (Matthäus 12:25 NIV).

Es gibt eine große spirituelle Kraft in Übereinstimmung. Wenn wir uns einigen, können erstaunliche Dinge passieren.

Eine Strategie des Feindes war es, uns gegeneinander aufzuspalten. Es ist wichtig, diesen Angriff zu brechen und sich mit dem Herrn und anderen im Geist der Einheit und Liebe zu einigen.

Benutze die Liebe nicht als "Knüppel"
Und über all diese Tugenden zieht die Liebe an, die sie alle in vollkommener Einheit verbindet. Kolosser 3:14 

Wenn du dich auf das vorbereiten willst, was im neuen Jahr kommt, wird es sehr wichtig sein, in die Liebe einzutreten. Das wichtigste und mächtigste Gebot nach Jesus ist es, Gott, andere und uns selbst zu lieben (Matthäus 22,37-39 NIV).

Gott sprach zu mir, dass viele Menschen einen "Knüppel der Liebe" benutzen (was bedeutet, dass sie die Liebe falsch als Waffe benutzen). Dies geschieht, wenn Menschen andere "hart anfassen" ohne ihre eigenen Überzeugungen in Frage zu stellen. Obwohl dies oft aus guten Absichten geschieht, erkennen viele Menschen vielleicht nicht, dass es keine Liebe ist, andere zu verletzen. Der Herr ruft uns auf, Menschen bedingungslos zu lieben, ohne ihren Glauben oder Lebensstil anzunehmen.

Es ist an der Zeit, unsere Differenzen und Urteile gegen Menschen abzulegen, mit denen wir nicht einverstanden sind. Wir müssen Liebe und Demut an den Tag legen. Deshalb sagte Johannes:

Wer nicht liebt, kennt Gott nicht, denn Gott ist Liebe. 
1. Johannes 4:8 NIV

Achte darauf, dass sich der Herr in den nächsten Monaten kraftvoll in deinem Leben bewegt. Wenn wir uns selbst demütigen, wird uns der Herr in neue Höhen führen.

Why You Were Made for This Time

Source: dougaddison.com

Do you know that God brought you into the world for this specific time?

People of the past were given a period of time to live and fulfill their purpose on the Earth. Many of them did great things and we can admire and be grateful for them, but their season is over.
We are now living in our era. This time is a special moment that God picked—specifically for us to walk the Earth and fulfill our calling.

What will you do with your time?

The question is: What are you going to do with your time?
Some people are walking around feeling like they have no purpose or destiny, when we’ve been chosen for such a time as this!

Look at the nations and watch—and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told. Habakkuk 1:5 NIV
God is doing something new and exciting in our moment of history, and you are called to be a part of it! He wants to share with you where you fit into all of this and bring clarity to your divine assignment and calling.

The Kingdom of God is within you

One crucial point to remember is that we don’t have to look around wondering where our purpose is.
Jesus made it clear:
Nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you. 
Luke 17:21 NKJV
Right now, there is anointing, power, strategy and authority inside of you! What you need, the purpose you’ve been looking for, is already within you.
God has given us everything we need to succeed and fulfill our purpose in this life, in this time. The same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead resides in us!
And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Romans 8:11 NIV
God is fanning the flame, the gifts that have been a part of you since the moment you were born and bringing those things to life.
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 43:19 NIV
This is your time. Now, get ready to walk in the fullness of the new!
Blessings,
Doug Addison

Inquiring of the Lord—Posturing Ourselves for Success

by Selenia Vera - ihopkc.org

When we seek the counsel of God, He gives us inside information and the edge on every situation we may encounter or find ourselves in. However, how much we inquire or whether we inquire at all is our choice to make. But to inquire of Him is the best way to go if we want to be spiritually successful. It is possible to live a life of victory, satisfaction, and divine favor—a life of miracle—when we inquire of the Lord and follow Him in all we do.
When we look deeply into David’s life and writings, we find an example (a road map, if you will) on how David postured himself before God and how we also are invited to live our lives. We were created and fashioned to succeed in all we do, having been made in the likeness and image of God—who has never and will never fail, because successful is who He is.
Most people are aware of King David’s shortcomings, sins, and failures, but fewer are aware that David was known as a man after the very heart of God. In Acts 13:22 it is said of David,
“[God] raised up David to be their king, concerning whom He also testified and said, ‘I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My heart, who will do all My will.'”
God certainly knew that David would fail, but He also knew that David would try again. He saw David’s sinning and was aware of every shortcoming (as He is for each one of us). But He also saw into David’s spirit and knew that David would run back into His arms—the arms of a loving Father—willing to do and obey all that He would command. God knew that David was a man of absolute faith and resolve in Him.
King David longed for many things, but he understood the truth of where true success and value would be found. He demonstrated it when he wrote and possibly even sang these following words as his own personal anthem.
One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and [insistently] require: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty . . . of the Lord, and to meditate, consider, and inquire in His temple. (Psalm 27:4 AMPC)
Yet as beautiful and descriptive as these words are, there is no instruction as to how David went about obtaining the answer—or is there? How do we obtain the spiritual guidance we seek? Is it just to simply pray those same words? Or is there some hidden mystery, some undisclosed truth that made David desire the presence of God all the days of his life? Exactly how did David run after the heart of God and obtain His favor? How did David gain this glorious success of beholding and gazing upon the beauty of God?
David’s example on how he went about obtaining his “one thing,” his “one request of the Lord” can be found hidden within the lines of his many Psalms. There we find a great road map, one that demonstrates David’s heart of prayer and pursuit of God in all things, sometimes despite his every emotion.
The following steps are just a few of the many golden nuggets David wrote that can be used to aid us in approaching the Lord to obtain answers and cause us to inherit a successful life in Christ.  
1.  We begin with assurance, knowing that when we, like David, call upon the Lord, He answers.
In my distress I called upon the Lord,
And cried to my God for help;
He heard my voice out of His temple,
And my cry for help before Him came into His ears. (Psalm 18:6 NASB)
2.  We live with a repentant heart.
For the sake of your name, Lord,
forgive my iniquity, though it is great. (Psalm 25:11 NIV)
3.  We embrace humility. Inviting us to step into agreement with who God says we are, humility enables us to harmoniously follow our Shepherd’s leading and to grow in wisdom as we receive His guidance.
He leads the humble in what is right,
and teaches the humble His way. (Psalm 25:9 ESV)
4.  We must choose to trust. Trust is a valued character trait the world lacks, and because of this, many find it difficult to trust an invisible God. However, when we choose to lean into God by learning of His heart and His ways, we begin to rely on Him in every circumstance and in every area of our lives. And as we learn Him, we are able to remember His faithfulness, which increases our capacity to trust Him.
Some trust in chariots, and some in horses;
But we will remember the name of the Lord our God. (Psalm 20:7)
5.  We choose to love Him. David understood that the choice to love God comes from recognizing and agreeing with the truth that God is the one who gives us the strength to do so—and God’s strength never fails and never gives up.
I will love you, O Lord, my strength. (Psalm 18:1)
6.  We practice devotion. Being devoted to something means being focused on that particular thing almost exclusively.
I have set the Lord continually before me;
Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. (Psalm 16:8 NASB)
7.  We give God the recognition that belongs to Him. Praising God and giving Him the recognition due His name is best done when we wholeheartedly profess our faith and proclaim His marvelous deeds.
I will praise You, O Lord, with my whole heart;
I will tell of all Your marvelous works. (Psalm 9:1)
8.  We know that He is faithful.
Surely Your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life. (Psalm 23:6 NIV)
9.  We live obediently before Him.
Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law
and obey it with all my heart. (Psalm 119:34 NIV)
10.  We are intentional in our pursuit of Him. In Psalm 63, David pens the purpose for his existence—to pursue God earnestly as his one desire, his one delight, his one defense.
O God, You are my God;
Early will I seek You;
My soul thirsts for You;
My flesh longs for You. (Psalm 63:1)
When I remember You on my bed,
I meditate on You in the night watches.
Because You have been my help,
Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
My soul follows close behind You;
Your right hand upholds me. (Psalm 63:6–8)
We can achieve success despite life’s obstacles and challenges when we keep our eyes on the Savior and make Him, as David did, our one thing. He is the one who holds our course steady. And He will complete His work in our lives. 1 Thessalonians 5:24 reminds us of this truth, saying of the Lord, Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.
When David wrote verse four of Psalm 27, he was responding to a lifelong call and invitation from God Himself to draw near and ask of Him. God is drawing us also. When Jesus is the primary focus of our desires and our lives, we ultimately experience victory instead of defeat and spiritual growth instead of stagnation.
How can you seek the Lord like David did?

    Hearing God - Webinar by Doug Addison

    Could the Answers You Need be
    Found in the Quiet?

    True story!
    One day I was praying and crying out to God with my 
    list of things I needed to happen in my life. Then I heard 
    the Lord say, 
    “Hey, will you just be quiet today? I’m trying 
    to give you the answers you’re searching for."
    I realized that sometimes we just need to stop talking 
    for a moment and quiet ourselves in order 
    to hear God in our lives.
    This can be difficult with the amount of noise we 
    experience every day. Focusing too much on the 
    bad news reports, natural disasters, killings and 
    other distractions can keep us from entering into 
    all God has for us!

    But the good news is that finding quiet time to listen 
    to the Lord doesn’t have to be super complicated 
    and doesn’t require an escape to a retreat.
    You can start by turning off your car radio on your 
    commute to work or take 10 minutes before breakfast 
    to sit in a quiet room to listen to God’s voice.

    Combining this tip along with the strategies you can use 
    to hear God in those times—you’ll find them in my 
    new free webinar, 
    can catapult you into a new level of your spiritual life!
    image
    I know you’ve got a lot going on, but I want to be sure 
    you remember that you can get immediate access to 
    this 1-hour training today. Watch it on your lunch break 
    or before bed and let God speak to you through it.
    Click the link below to get started hearing God 
    confidently today.
