Prophetic Seasonal Shifts
We are not trying to come up with our own words; we are giving God his words back. Actually, we are giving the earth God’s word. We are now standing in God’s stead; we are releasing in the earth what God said. For that reason, we do not want to be cute with our words. If we are going to walk in His Ability, His words must become our words. What we are literally doing is replacing all of our words with His.
In our attempt to stay up with the times, our words do not equate to what God says. When we try to stay up with the times, there becomes a conflict with what we release in the earth, and what God released in our hearing. Whatever comes out of our mouth, whether in song or in a word, we need to make sure that it agrees with God’s word. As an end result, the Devil does not care if you are just joking, or if it’s just a song–No, it is a confession in song. It is not just a cliché, it is a confession through, or in the form of a cliché. If that confession comes out of your mouth and is contrary to the Word of God, it is a confession that messes up a season. We have to check and correct all confessions we make.
We do not need to release anything out of our mouths that would give Satan room to use our words against us. Remember, God is looking to see if we are walking in line with a principle he could honor or not honor. Remember, God gave you authority over the earth; He no longer has it. What that means is, you and I are going to have to do our part; a prophetic act that will assure we are releasing something that is going to bring Godly results and the manifestation we are seeking.
Prosperity is ours because of the Word. Because the word prosperity has been so abused, anytime we use it we think money or finances only, however, prosperity is well rounded. Prosperity is the fullness of everything that God wants to release to us. As a matter of fact, if we are not overly supplied, we are really not walking in it. If we are not overly supplied in every area of our lives then we are not walking in the fullness of the prosperity that God talks about.
Let us take a look at Deuteronomy 8:18
But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for [it is] he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as [it is] this day. [Deu 8:18 KJV]
What is power? Power is knowledge, ability, or authority. When we look at these words (and any other word that is consistent with the word power) we should consider all of these words so that we can understand what God gave us in order to walk in our prosperity. God gives us all things to enjoy. In the midst of all he gave to us, what do we do with it?
I do not want to know what you should do with it; More importantly, what do you actually do with it? God has given you and me, power, ability, knowledge, and authority. Having armed us, Did you use His ability or did you cave in under what you were confronted with? Most of the time we know the right answer, but we do not always do the right thing. One of the reasons we don’t handle things properly is because of the attached blessing; it is a “masked season”.
Dr. Mike Freeman and I were going over this subject at a meeting on two separate occasions. We were talking about seasons, we hadn’t discussed for about six years. As soon as I stepped into his office he said: “I thought about another M regarding seasons”. I will mention that M later in the School of Prophets Training September 2017, but immediately I thought about God giving us the power to get wealth, however, what we did was not a demonstration of such. As Dr. Mike talked, we agreed to put these seasons in some working order as we had not done so at our previous discussion. When we discussed these five seasons previously he said that seasons are: Masked, Missed, Messed Up, Made, and Managed.
Now at this meeting we were going to put them in order and when we got to seasons are Masked, he was looking at it from one perspective, but I was looking at it from a different perspective. Even though we used the same words six years prior, we closed the meeting, not realizing we were not on the same page; and we did not learn until our meeting this time, we were on two different pages.
He was looking at it from one angle and me from a different angle. Both are correct, but it is two different ways to look at it. That is one of the things that we do with this verse:
But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for [it is] he that giveth thee powerto get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as [it is] this day. [Deu 8:18 KJV]
It says that God gives us the power to get wealth. However, when we are in any season God has given us the power to get wealth in that season, but we walk away without any manifestation at all, because our season has been masked.
When we were putting these six seasons in order we concluded, that seasons are first Masked and that is why we often miss it, except in absolute obedience. Remember verse 18 says, “remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth.” Now, every one of us that are reading this material right now, are in a position to lay hold of wealth and change our season, but not everyone one of us actually lay hold of any measure of it.
When God brings us into a particular season, many times, we do not understand the season in which we stand. Many times we do not even think about whether or not it is a season. Presently, this is where we are. There are some of us that are in particular situations right now, and we do not understand that it is a season. But we have to understand it because this season is going to pass. When the season passes, will you get a passing grade in the season? When you step into a season it is a test. The season is supposed to manifest something, but if we do not pass the season that means that we pass through that season without a harvest.
When we understand that we missed a masked season, we have to embrace the fact that God has introduced us to a season He wanted us to pass because the season is loaded possibility. Every season is loaded with something, but the interesting thing is we only consider what we are dealing with at the time. We are not always thinking “This is a season” I am going through. We should be thinking, we are going through a season that is loaded with what God wants me to have. He wants you to go ahead and pass this season. He wants you to pack it all up and walk out with bag loads or truck loads of things from your season. That is what God wants for us.
