By Joni Ames)
As I was pulling together the Memes for my social media about setting our clocks back this weekend, the Lord spoke to me, “Times ARE greatly changing.“
As I have been traveling and ministering over the past six weeks throughout the Midwest, I have been sharing with people about the Jewish new year that we have entered into. It is the 5780s. The pictograph for it is an open mouth. The bottom line is, it is time that we as Christians no more remain a silent majority. The enemy may have some power, but we have AUTHORITY in the name and blood of Jesus Christ. We must take our place of AUTHORITY and use it.
This new season is one of speaking forth and of declaration. God speaks that for Himself as well in Isaiah 42:14:
“I have held My peace a long time, I have been still and restrained Myself. Now I will cry like a woman in labor, I will pant and gasp at once.”
He will no longer be silent and neither should we.
MIGHTY MEN ARISING
Additionally I believe the Lord has said that there is a new men’s movement beginning to take place and it will far outshine even the promise keepers movement. Our men are in labor to bring it forth:
“Ask now, and see, Whether a man is ever in labor with child? So why do I see every man with his hands on his loins Like a woman in labor, And all faces turned pale?”
Men have been depicted in television comedies as weak, stupid, worthless, good-for-nothing, irresponsible, unstable, deceitful, and without value. Society has recently labeled them as untrustworthy, sexual perverts, overbearing misogynistics. But God says, “That’s enough!”
This is a whole new generation of men like David’s mighty men. In the beginning they were depressed, in debt, and in despair. But they became mighty in the Lord. So shall the men of today.
“(1) David therefore departed from there and escaped to the cave of Adullam. So when his brothers and all his father’s house heard it, they went down there to him.
(2) And everyone who was in distress, everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented gathered to him. So he became captain over them.“
(I Samuel 22)
They became David’s mighty men who went forth with him in battle and gained great victory. (2 Samuel 23)
I believe God is raising up a brand new group of Mighty Men today. I’ve seen and ministered to many this year. They are coming out of the cave, in power and authority over what has tried to destroy them.
Today’s Mighty Men will arise to re-parent the younger generations who have not been properly parented and will even stand by our president and bring forth victory in our nation once again.
In this season, the words you speak even over yourselves is important. So stop word cursing your self and your situations. Life and death are in the power of the tongue. (Proverbs 18:21) Begin now to declare victory over situations you, your loved ones, and our nation are facing.
“You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.” Job 22:28
In so doing, God will declare victory for you:
“He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.”
To declare means to announce, say openly.
BREAKING BREAKTHROUGH NEWS
I said to the Lord recently that it seemed like all of hell was breaking loose. He said to me, “If that’s the case, know that I will not be out done and that all of Heaven will break loose in a greater, mighty way.”
I have had my battles in recent days. Bronchitis, a bad cellulitis infection in my leg, erratic blood pressure, allergies, etc. I spent two nights ago in the hospital after six weeks on the road. The enemy had me convinced of some pretty scary issues. But God has given me victory over the enemy’s lies. He will for you as well.
So that I can keep on going, I am supposed to stay off the road for the next couple of weeks. But I am already feeling excited about what is ahead. You should be too.
As I turn 65 on Sunday, I am entering into the 25th year of my own ministry. I am looking forward to and planning much. So feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are ready for me to come to your group.
Let’s all pray together and believe God and declare victory!
