In the body of Christ we are often hearing prophetic words about how God is getting ready to do something. We are always hearing prophetic words that go, “that thing you have been waiting for….” After a while if we be honest the getting ready prophetic word gets old. I jokingly tell my daddy Jesus, it seems like you’ve been getting ready for whatever for the past 10 years and it still has not happened yet. I remember God gave me a word to preach about 10 years ago, the title of the message was The Time Is Now. Well God blessed that word. The now time word started happening to everyone around me accept me. Isn’t it ironic that God will have you speak a word to someone else that you have been waiting on yourself? It is just like God to have you praying for someone else about the same area you have been believing God for. Remember God’s timing is not our timing.
Well I believe that we are quickly approaching a season of suddenly. Things are about to happen so quick within the body of Christ that even those who have been in waiting are going to be shocked by the quickness in which things begin to manifest. It sounds so cliché but I believe the word of the Lord for the body of Christ is that we are approaching a season of suddenly.
As I always say there are requirements for the blessing. If you don’t meet the requirements you don’t get to the manifestation. Simple as that. So the suddenly season is not for everyone,it is only for those who have met the requirements.
So who are those who have met the requirements for the suddenly season?
The season of suddenly are for those who first have been tried and found faithful unto God. Remember God always reveals the prophetic promise, before there was manifestation there is always a process that you must endure then the promise is manifested. As I always say if you have not endured the process you don’t qualify for the promise.
Remember God test us to prove us, to sharpen us and to develop our character. It is when you pass the test that you get to be matriculated to the next dimension in God. If you don’t pass the test you don’t get to graduate you just have to repeat the test over again. God will not birth out what is in you prematurely. People may try to birth you out prematurely but not God. He knows better than that. You always have to be careful surrounding yourself with people who want to birth you out prematurely before your time. Remember premature babes in Christ often, lose strength and die because they had no substance to them in the first place.
So the season for those who will experience the suddenly are those who have been tried by the fire and been found faithful. Now you have a greater level of substance. An indication that you have endured the process is when you know how to shut up. Just because you can say something doesn’t mean you should. The other indication that you have endured the process is if you are someone who walks in the wisdom of God. Notice I didn’t say someone who teaches or preaches in or about the wisdom of God. I said someone who walks in the wisdom of God. Wisdom is one of the few gifts that has to be developed overtime and in process. One of the greatest enemies to the body of Christ is the lack of wisdom and discernment. Now again the gift of wisdom and discernment can be imparted but the only way you know you have this gift and can function appropriately in this gift is in process and over time.
Most of the time if you use your discernment you will see that people who don’t operate in the wisdom of God often operate in the spirit of error. They also try to step ahead of God and His timing because there is no wait in them and there is also no real spiritual weight to them. Regardless of how many signs and wonders a person can perform they still can have no depth to them. I could preach a whole message on the wisdom of God so that will be for another blog. The only indication of a mature Christian is the wisdom they walk in, the process they have endured, their ability to be silent, listen and the spirit of discernment.
So if you are someone who operates and walks in the wisdom of God your season of suddenly is on its way.
The next indication of your suddenly season is if you are in a place of not being comfortable. God is getting ready to shift some things. There are some mantles that are getting ready to be released into body of Christ. God is also removing mantles from folks who have not heeded to His warnings and manipulated His gospel. Warning: Don’t move just yet. God is getting ready to release you to a new place where you will be celebrated and not tolerated. The reason why God often times places us in certain situations, ministries, and other surroundings is to teach you what not to do. He also teaches us the spirit of submission. You don’t have the ability to submit until you are challenged in the area of submission. Until there is disagreement and you still submit that when you have been perfected.
The Lord spoke to me and said, “there are some doors that I am going to close for you and some doors I am going to open for you.” If you are agreeing with this section of the blog more than likely you have been in a season where God has had you submit to something you don’t agree with. God was really teaching you how to submit and not move out of something prematurely. You need not worry in the days to come God is going to release you. You must stay put don’t leave until God releases. This was only a test. God will release you.
Finally the suddenly season are for those who have endured hardship particularly within these last two to three years. I know for me these last two years have been the hardest years of my Christian walk. I almost didn’t think I was going to make it but thanks be to God I have. For those who have endured the hardship and the season of your faith God is releasing you to it.
The season of suddenly are for those who have been patiently waiting for the manifestation of their divine promise. The ministry gifts, rejections and being over looked will all come to ahead all at once.
So what about those who don’t qualify for the suddenly?
Those who will not qualify are those who are out of place. Meaning those who have birthed themselves out and not waited on God. These people have created spiritual a spiritual Ishmael. Ishmael may look like the promise, may act like the promise but he is not nor will he ever be the promise.
For those who cannot submit to spiritual heads or leadership don’t qualify for the suddenly.
For those who have not endured the cross, despising the shame don’t qualify.
For those who have not been faithful, even in the area of their tithes and offerings don’t qualify for the suddenly.
I believe God is raising up a body of believers, if your like me God has placed you in His spiritual cocoon but He is getting ready to reveal you. It may have seemed as if He was hurting you but really He was helping you and developing you. Remember God prepares you He never releases anything to you before He first prepares you first. Never. What you obtain without God’s preparation will only destroy you in the long run.
Thank you Jesus for the season of Suddenly. Remember we serve a great God. He is our father and we are His children He doesn’t do anything to harm us it is His good pleasure to bless His children.
