April is going to be an exciting month, and you are going to see breakthroughs begin to happen. The Wind of Change is going to blow things into place much more radically than in the past few months. Strategic realignment is coming, starting this month. Get ready for a move of God in your life!
"The Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field." (Matthew 13:44 NIV)
"Pentecost (May 19-21) is a time to receive new gifts and empowerment of the Holy Spirit, similar to Acts 2."
This is a very special time when God is going to reveal hidden treasures to you. This might be in the form of deep revelation or forgotten desires. God is birthing something new in the midst of what might feel like times of turmoil. Just like the birth of a baby, it can be messy and painful. But when the baby comes, there is great joy and rejoicing.
Watch for God to reveal hidden revelation from your past. These are things that He has spoken to you about previously, or you have received prophetic words that have not yet come to pass. This will also include God surprising you with fun and new things that are coming right now!
"...From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you. They are created now, and not long ago; you have not heard of them before today..."
(Isaiah 48:6–7 NIV)
Many people have been crying out for direction and strategies from the Lord to get through this difficult season we have been in. These prayers are now being answered, and God is going to reveal secret things and secret places to find them. This is the form of revelation that has been stored away, kept on hold until this very season of your life.
God is going to summon you by name. He is going to do something that you will know is from Him. He is going to speak your name or give you confirmation so that you will know that you are on the right path.
Passover to Pentecost
I released a prophetic word, Why Is Passover Relevant to Me and What Should I Do? It contains specific details from the Lord about the season we are in right now. Jesus was crucified and resurrected from the dead during the Passover holiday. Then 50 days later during the Feast of Weeks, or Pentecost, God sent the power of the Holy Spirit. This now allows us to be filled with God’s power that goes a step beyond salvation itself.
This time of Passover through Pentecost is March 30 through May 21, 2018. It is a time when God reveals plans of breakthrough, Passover strategies and the release of His power to bring them about.
The significance of Passover (March 30-April 7) is receiving revelation from the Lord like Moses did to free the Israelites (Exodus 11-12). Pentecost (May 19-21) is a time to receive new gifts and empowerment of the Holy Spirit, similar to Acts 2.
"God is birthing something new in the midst of what might feel like times of turmoil."
It is interesting to note that between the time Jesus was crucified at Passover and before He ascended back to Heaven and the coming of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost, He appeared to many people. This is the time of year that the Lord is revealing Himself (not necessarily literally) and giving us strategies and revelation that we will need for the coming season.
40-Day Fast Extended
In case you have not heard, we are extending the 40-day fast from negativity that was supposed to end on April 9. We heard the Lord to extend it and it will now end on April 18, 2018.
We are calling people around the world to fast from negativity and release the spirit of joy over California to open a revival. Many moves of God have started in California, and the Lord has called us to break off the spirit of negativity and release revival.
This is significant, as it is going to end on 4-18, representing Luke 4:18.
"The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free." (Luke 4:18 NIV)
This is the verse that Jesus proclaimed at the start of His ministry. It is also the very first time I heard the Lord speak to me in 1988 when He gave me this prophetic calling over my life!
