A few weeks back, I heard this phrase that God kept dropping into my spirit, “You’re standing on the edge of glory.” As I have taken time to ponder this with the Holy Spirit, I am beginning to understand much more deeply, just what He wanted me to convey.
Many respected prophets have already begun to confirm this to my heart as we have spoken, or they have already released words regarding 2018 being the year of family. I want to encourage you to follow up on the latest words regarding 2018 being the year of family and receive the promises of God that are coming for you! This word does confirm the year of family, but it will also expose the enemy’s schemes against your family, in order that your destiny will not be aborted!
“Some of you need to quiet the voices around you and hear His heart for yourself and your families for the coming year.”
As the Lord began to expand upon this phrase, “Standing on the edge of glory,” He showed me just how violent the war on families has been—especially in 2017. The enemy set out, primarily through a Jezebel, Leviathan, and Python spirit, an all-out assault upon families. His goal was to divide and conquer; to utterly destroy families at all costs and use any means to do it. The move of God that has begun to surface is all about family. Now, God is decreeing that 2018 is the year of family! So what does this have to do with His glory?
The Spirit of Elijah
The spirit of Elijah is coming like a blazing fire to set in families in order.You will see restoration in ways you could not imagine. But with restoration comes a tearing down and removal of anything that could keep Him from restoring all that is due to you.
We are standing on the edge of a glorious move of God that will bring throne room encounters and massive shifts, even in the way that ministry looks, as families emerge that have survived the fiery attempts of the enemy to destroy them.
The Lord has been showing us the DIRE NEED to expose the enemy’s schemes to you. The enemy has sought to sneak in using the Word—even prophetic words—to try and derail you from your family, your promises, your ultimate call to ministry and your destiny. He wants you to give up after years of contending and believing that things concerning your family and destiny are never going to change, but it’s a lie! The glory of God (His absolute goodness) is going to fall on many families. This holy fire will burn away all the chaff and set you ablaze for Him in the most powerful of ways. BUT…you cannot take the bait of the enemy!
Families: You Have a Beautiful Destiny…Together!
The spirit of Baal, Jezebel—and divination as a whole—has crept in around many in an effort to pull you off destiny’s path. Many demonic spirits have spoken to you—disguised as His Spirit—encouraging you to give up on your family members and your destiny. The Spirit of God is trying to get your attention today. Be ever so careful about the words you receive into your spirit and the voices you take in. The spirit of divination is hard at work to convince you to make choices that will abort the family destiny that is about to spring forth in this coming year. (Photo via Pixabay)
I can personally testify and know of many families who are and were under heavy attacks over the past year. The onslaught of the enemy has been unlike anything I have ever seen. If you find yourself relating to this, believe me when I say: your FAMILY—ALL OF YOU TOGETHER—have a powerful destiny before you. DO NOT GIVE INTO THIS DEMONIC ASSAULT! Your destiny is TOGETHER, not apart. Your spouses, children, and even some extended family members, have a great destiny to fulfill and it requires each of you to do it.
For years, the family unit has been under attack through prodigal children, divorce, abortion and more, because the enemy feared the day that is now dawning, where God’s glory is about to manifest upon families like we have never known!
Many of you can’t figure out exactly what this will look like, or after years of heartache, it’s hard for you to imagine this magnitude of change taking place in your families; but it’s about to fall upon so many of you! The Lord wants you to know that having a vision is key, but it’s OK not to have all the answers yet. Every person and family has a destiny to reflect the fullness of Christ in the fullness of times that we are stepping into even now.
Your aim should be Christ-likeness. It is in this place that we find ourselves on the edge of glory! There are many who talk the talk, but don’t walk the walk. It will not be so in this coming season! God is going to expose and remove all of the false and as He pours out His fire, a great cleansing will take place. It will bring a fresh purity and power as God releases families into their inheritances, promises and destinies…TOGETHER!
Stepping Into the Power and Glory of the New Fire
God will have a people that worship Him purely in Spirit and in truth…those who would have no other gods before Him. Those whose houses are in order! Those whose character matches their words. This is one of the greatest refining fires happening right now. Embrace the purifying of this fire and you will step into the power and glory of this fire! We are on the edge of a fresh, new realm of glory, Church! It’s going to be a time of fresh encounters with Him that bring great increase of His glory.
The glory of God is going to cover the earth as the waters cover the sea and He’s going to do it through you and me, through family; His perfect design! It’s Christ IN YOU that is the hope of glory (Hab. 2:14, Col. 1:27)!
“The spirit of Elijah is coming like a blazing fire to set in families in order.”
Even relational church family dynamics will look different for many in this next season. There are hungry hearts gathering as family, even now. They are unified in their hunger and pursuit of Him. They know there is more, and God is going to trust them to steward His presence, power, and glory in fresh new ways in the coming year. Their hearts and priorities are in order personally and corporately, and as a result, they will transition from the edge of glory, into fresh new levels of glory; bringing with it life-changing revelations and encounters like we have never known!
Your spiritual alignments are just as important in this year of family. There has never been a more CRITICAL TIME to know that you are rightly aligned with your immediate spiritual/ministry/church family. Don’t get stuck in the familiar with all you have ever known…if you know deep within that God is calling you out upon the uncharted waters to be grafted in with a new spiritual family! Many are experiencing these shifts within ministry and church relations. You need to make these types of tough decisions with spirit eyes and not the opinions of man.
We cannot say it enough! It’s really important in this next season that you are aligned with the spiritual family God has for you. Spiritual alignments are another area the enemy has attacked ruthlessly this year. For some, it was the hand of God removing you from harm’s way and reconnecting you to your new church/spiritual family so that you may continue to thrive and grow. He has removed some of you from very dangerous situations and grafted you into new places with brand new faces for what is coming in this next year. Embrace those shifts, even if costs you everything, and for many it has and will.
Guard Your Hearts and Minds
Now that you know more about what is to come, I charge you to be on guard, and perhaps even reconsider some decisions you have made, or are in the process of making; especially concerning the area of natural and spiritual family alignments.
Some of you need to quiet the voices around you and hear His heart for yourself and your families for the coming year.While others need to surround yourself with wise counsel to make sound decisions for the sake of you and your family! Don’t be so impressed by the gifts, but rather the fruit. The fruit will reveal the root. Who you receive from is critical as you make decisions and transitions concerning family and spiritual connections for the coming year! (Photo via Pixabay)
The enemy has targeted many marriages in this season. He has come in and magnified your spouse’s shortcomings in your eyes. He has subtly whispered all the reasons why you deserve better. But someone needs to know! God can change hearts and remove all hardness if we will allow Him! Don’t give up on your marriage (Mal. 2:13-16 and Psalm 68:5-6).
Many have come around you in this season dressed like Holy Spirit, but they were wrapped in divination and it brought confusion and more into your life. Not every spirit is Holy Spirit! Test it, test it, and stand on the words YOU KNOW God has spoken over your family and your life! Don’t let pride close your ears from hearing what you may have been listening to and picking up on the wrong spirit.
However, just as the physical rain came during the time of Elijah, there are fresh rains of glory that are going to confront the enemy who seeks to destroy people and families. A refreshing healing rain is going to wash over as you allow God to put your life into order and you yield to the refining fires that will bring forth the glory! The spirit of Elijah is moving even now to restore families that have been traumatized by the enemy and trials. Receive the healing rains of His presence, for you are about to come out gold! Don’t give up now. We’re on the edge of glory!
