“Rise up in splendor and be radiant, for your light has dawned, and Yahweh’s glory now streams from you! Look carefully! Darkness blankets the earth, and thick gloom covers the nations, but Yahweh arises upon you and the brightness of his glory appears over you!”Isaiah 60:1–2 TPT
It is time to rise up!
I heard the Lord say, “I am moving through the message of Isaiah 60—particularly verses 1, 11 and 22—and also the entire chapter of Matthew 13.”
We are at a major turning point as the dark night of the past season is coming to an end. The Lord is shining his light and revealing the areas where the enemy has been attacking and trying to discourage you.
The Lord is bringing new glory and power to break out of the dark night and remove the clouds of unclarity.
“Your gateways will always remain wide open around the clock to let in the procession of kings bringing their constant stream of the riches of the nations.”Isaiah 60:11 TPT
The Lord is opening the gates of financial blessings and provision. New doors of opportunity are opening in the Spirit to bring downloads, blueprints and strategies to you during this season. This is a ripe and ready time!
“I will multiply the least of you into a thousand and the weakest one into a mighty nation. I am Yahweh, and when the right time comes, I will accomplish it swiftly!”Isaiah 60:22 TPT
The Lord is going to use humble, unknown people to receive financial blessings to help the hurting world. Do not despise the days of humble beginnings. When it is the right time for you, the Lord will move quickly.
A season of revelation
We are in powerful times to hear the Lord for strategies and solutions.
“He did this to fulfill the prophecy: I will speak to you in allegories. I will reveal secrets that have been concealed since before the foundation of the world.”Matthew 13:35 TPT
Watch for God to reveal things that have been hidden that will help you move out of the old season and into the new. This is a season of revelation and downloads from Heaven.
Continued healing of eyes, ears and understanding
It’s a time to bring healing to your ability to hear the voice of the Lord.
There is strategic revelation coming that will help remove the blocks people are having with seeing, hearing and understanding what the Lord is saying.
“The prophecy of Isaiah describes them perfectly: Although they listen carefully to everything I speak, they don’t understand a thing I say. They look and pretend to see, but the eyes of their hearts are closed.”Matthew 13:14 TPT
We will need to ask God to remove the attack against our spiritual eyes, ears and heart of understanding.
The Lord is going deeper with the healing theme in Matthew 13. The entire chapter contains a prophetic blueprint for healing in this season.
Attack against prophetic seeds
In the parable of the seed and the sower (Matthew 13:4–9), Jesus talks about 3 attacks of the enemy to take away the revelation coming from Heaven.
- Path: Lacking understanding (Matthew 13:19)
- Rocky ground: Get excited, but no root to survive troubles and persecution (Matthew 13:20–21)
- Thorns: Worries of life, deception of wealth (Matthew 13:22)
Ask the Lord to remove any of these you might have and release to you the good soil with a return of 30-, 60- or 100-fold (Matthew 13:23).
Holy weed eaters
“The Son of Man will send his messengers, and they will uproot everything out of his kingdom. All the lawless ones and everything that causes sin will be removed.”Matthew 13:41 TPT
The Lord is sending his angels to weed out things that are not of him. This can be ungodly belief systems and behaviors that are not of the Lord. We are in a time of major pruning of our thoughts and actions. Don’t be alarmed if old things start surfacing as the Lord is cleansing you.
The result of the pruning
Expect to find hidden treasure of the Lord, new joy and restored callings for many people.
“Heaven’s kingdom realm can be illustrated like this: A person discovered that there was hidden treasure in a field. Upon finding it, he hid it again. Because of uncovering such treasure, he was overjoyed and sold all that he possessed to buy the entire field just so he could have the treasure.”Matthew 13:44 TPT
Study the parables in Matthew as this is what the Lord is bringing during this strategic season. It might be uncomfortable at times as the Lord prunes us, but the result will be amazing!
