Hallelujah! God is promising a new level of release of the miraculous to be seen in the nation. Exodus-style miracles are going to increase in this season and the following season. We will begin to see creative miracles, healings, sign and wonders, encounters with God and an increase in salvations, in a greater way.
The shaking that the nation has walked through will continue in two specific areas: the economy and leadership.
Economically, there will be a double dip recession due to the refusal of society to break the habit of financial presumption. Continuing in a lifestyle of debt will crush those who refuse to change. Unemployment will rise to levels we have not seen in many, many decades.
Leadership in the church and the political and business arenas is being called to model the ways of the Good Shepherd. God has been raising up a new breed of Good Shepherd leaders of all ages who will rise up when others fall from grace and position, as you will witness in the coming year. It is not a place for leaders to find a middle ground where compromise reigns: you will either walk free from your sin and into a new integrity or the pressure of the sin will prevent you from retaining your position.
God is calling for His church to change from its casual approach, to embrace a reverential fear and awe of God. While personal holiness is always on Gods heart, there is an even stronger call for it in this season. Having a reverential fear and awe of the King of Kings will be a precursor to carrying the release of the power and anointing of the miraculous that God is pouring out over Scotland. Re-cultivate some of the spiritual disciplines that you once explored and which will, in this season, have more power than they ever did before.
This focus on Holiness is a choice and God is asking us to release
the things that hold us back. No one man or denomination is the full
carrier of the open Heaven that God seeks to bring to the nation and,
along with personal holiness, corporate holiness is also on The Lords
agenda. Corporate holiness in this season is related to the associations
that we have with one another. This is a call to relinquish our
elitism, titles, status, positions and power. Lay it all down that
we may be one, even as Jesus and the Father are one.
God is asking us to align with those who are passionately pursuing the heart of God and His call to live as a Holy People.
God is speaking the words new sound over the nation and God is releasing favour in the creativity of the people of Scotland. It is the sound of breakthrough, it is the sound of the Wake Up trumpet! Intercessory war cries, rhythms and drumbeats will rise. This is linked to the inheritance that Scotland has in God. It is not just confined to Christian worship music but God is going to release a change even in the secular music coming out of Scotland.
We are in a time of transitioning, where the Lord asks, Where do you want to transition into? and, What do you want to leave behind? Some of the issues that have been long-established in your life will be brought to completion and they will not transition into the next season.
Prayers you can pray to respond to this word:
Prophecy usually requires a response and is often conditional on what we choose to do with it. You may find it helpful to ask God the following questions, or say the following prayers, to help you fully engage with the word we have released:
Holiness and Miracles
Ask what would it look like if I were more holy?
Pray to know what it is to be more in awe of God.
Pray for an increase in the miraculous in your life, community, church family.
Pray for this new wave of creativity to burst over you, so that you can sing a new song and have a new sound, as your Heavenly Father releases it in the nation.
Ask what in my life needs to transition and cannot stay where it is?
Ask what in my life needs brought to completion?
Pray that transition and completion will be brought to the areas that you have listed in the previous questions.
