“Sshhh! Quiet Your Heart and Tune into the Father’s Heart”
I sat to meet with God on 21st of September 2016, when He began to reveal some exciting plans He has in store for the body of Christ and for the earth. I spoke with Him about the growing pains of this season of pruning, testing and waiting on His glory. He reminded me of the scripture in 2 Corinthians 12:9, that states, “in our weakness His strength is made perfect”. Jesus is strengthening us in these times of waiting, for the seasons that are to come. He reminded me of His faithful covenant of love with His children, and steadfast promise to bring them into their destiny, and to be with them in EVERY season along the journey. The Father is committed to loving each of us unconditionally and revealing to us His heart, will and wisdom for these last days.
I pressed in deeper to the Father’s love then Jesus whispered to me, “be still”. He instructed me to prepare to write; so I pulled up a new blank word document on my laptop to type what the Lord would speak. For a short while, there was utter silence in the room. Then I heard Holy Spirit speak clearly, yet so gently, the number “1080”. I was astounded at first by this number, yet so eager to hear what Holy Spirit would speak. This would have been the first time God has spoken to me through the use of numbers. This was actually the third time for the week that I had glimpsed the number 1080. However, Holy Spirit desired to highlight this number to me on this day, 21 September 2016.
Holy Spirit then led me to research the Biblical meaning of the number “1080”.
The number 1080 in Greek means “Gennaó”, which means “to beget” “to bring forth” “to give birth” “to deliver”.
The word begat appears in the Bible over one hundred times, in reference to the genealogy of historical births descending from Adam and Eve.
Present Birth Pains
I sense that we are entering into a season where deliverance and major births will take place in the body of Christ! The earth is pregnant with the true sons and daughters of God. For the time has come. Yes, the long- awaited time that Paul prophesied about in Romans 8:19-25. The earth has been moaning and groaning for ages, to see the true and confident sons and daughters of God arise. It is time!
“For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the One who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God. We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.” (Romans 8:18-25)
In Isaiah 26:17-19, the prophet Isaiah compared the present sufferings, trials and chastisement of God’s people within the earth, to the birth pains a woman experiences during her time of labor, as her time of delivery is drawing near. Isaiah expressed to the Lord that for so long, the Lord’s people have been in pain and have not yet accomplished any deliverance in the earth; nor have the inhabitants of the world fallen. However, despite the present state of the earth in Isaiah’s day, He still declared, that The Father’s dead shall live, arise and awake!
We are now entering this time that Isaiah prophesied about, where the body of Christ shall awake and arise to life in Christ. The people of God will become whole, and will thrive and walk as the beloved bride of Christ. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so. The righteous will arise in love and power, to their positions of authority; they will walk with confidence and boldness, into the promises of the King. They will overtake the wicked and inherit the land of promise, where they will dwell forever. It is time for the world to see Jesus manifested in His people. It is time!
“Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in Thy sight, O Lord. We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen. Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.” (Isaiah 26:17-19)
Many people in the body of Christ are about to experience, or have already began experiencing major breakthroughs and sudden miracles, orchestrated by the gracious hand of God. Some have been believing for a change in character. Many have been desiring to walk fully in their freedom in Christ; having the mind and heart of Christ. Many have been in captivity by the enemy for almost their entire lives, and are believing God for complete freedom and deliverance from the enemy’s strongholds. Many have answered the call of the Lord on their lives with a genuine yes from the heart, but have not been able to fully function in their yes, due to demonic strongholds and generational curses that have held their minds in captivity for years. These strongholds have kept many encircling the same mountains of defeat and fear for a long time. Jesus wants to remind us today, that He is at work in our lives, to heal, to deliver and to break the wearying cycle of encircling one mountain monotonously and habitually, without obtaining results or supernatural breakthrough. Jesus is here to break the strongholds of defeat, rejection and sin! All He needs is a yes. He wants to lift the burden of striving, and carry us Himself to our breakthrough and promise, without us having to fight for it in our own strength. He wants to lift us in His love. Jesus is looking beyond our present and past conditions; He is seeking a willing and surrendered heart to transform. Jesus is so eager to speak to us, share with us and clean us up to reveal His glory! So whether you may or may not presently feel Him; He is at work in your life to set you free! Do not give up on Jesus. He will never leave you nor forsake you, despite your mistakes or present condition; He is with you and sees your potential. He is calling you higher to meet your highest potential in Him. He will perfect you as He promised! This is not a time to to return to Egypt (the old way of living). It is time to pick yourself up, dust off everything that so easily entangles and press toward the mark of the High calling in Christ Jesus!
This is the season for complete deliverance for the body of Christ; deliverance from the lies of the enemy that have held the body divided, bounded and broken for decades.
“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” (John 8:36)
A Season for Deliverance and Giving Birth: “Your Seed Will Not Be Aborted”
Many of God’s children around the globe, have been experiencing major birth pains, in preparation for a major release or unfolding of the promises and glory of God. There is about to be a major unfolding of God’s glory within the earth, that will cause the seeds of vision, purpose, righteousness and the mind of Christ, to SPRING FORTH from the wombs of believers all around the globe. This glorious awakening will send shockwaves throughout the earth, causing the earth to shake and vibrate with a new sound from Heaven. Captives will be set free as a result of this new sound that God is releasing by His Spirit, within the earth through His people, who have made their hearts available to Him. The chains of bondage will be broken off of the hearts of God’s people as they tap into the wells of His unconditional and succulent love. Continue to push; you are on the verge of a major breakthrough.
“The righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it forever” (Psalm 37:29)
“Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert. (Isaiah 43:19)
The children of God have been carrying precious seeds of vision and purpose in their wombs for a very long time. They have been persistently working toward or toiling over and praying about visions, desires, promises and dreams, placed in their hearts by God. Despite the increase in trials, they have remained confident in Christ’s finished work on the cross; they continue to press forward.
Holy Spirit is breathing upon the hearts, to awaken and bring to life every dormant Kingdom seed that have been planted in their wombs over the years. At the sound of this glorious awakening by Holy Spirit, all striving will cease, as the sons and daughters of God become one with Holy Spirit. They will be refined; armed and ready for Battle with truth in their hearts and on their lips. They will be able to stand firm when the day of evil comes, because they have armed themselves in the secret place with the full armor of God. They will understand what it truly means to walk by the Spirit of God, having the very nature, character and heart of Jesus Christ.
Not by might, nor by power but by the Spirit of the living God. (Zechariah 4:6)
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God and pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. (Ephesians 6:10-18)
This is a time for giving birth to all of those amazing promises that the LORD Himself has bestowed upon your heart. Do not think it strange beloved, that Jesus has chosen you to carry such an amazing and glorious seed! For you are the chosen generation and the Royal Priesthood a consecrated and holy nation, a [special] people for God’s own possession who will proclaim the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections] of the LORD who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light! (See 1 Peter 2:9) There will be no aborted visions in this season. Jesus wants to remind us on this day that we will conceive; we will give birth, for this is our portion. He is on our side. He wants to encourage His beloved bride, to continue loving, building, pressing and travailing, because the time of giving birth is imminent! Do not give up now. The Father promises that He will complete the good work He has started in us, until the day of Jesus Christ!
‘But you, take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.” (2 Chronicles 15:7)
“The seed will grow well, the vine will yield its fruit, the ground will produce its crops, and the heavens will drop their dew. I will give all these things as an inheritance to the remnant of this people. (Zechariah 8:12)
