The Lord has been speaking to me a lot lately about the seven mountains and recently I had an encounter with Jesus and He showed me the seven mountains crying out for the manifested sons and daughters of God to arise and to take their place. It’s time to ARISE and SHINE. (Isaiah 60:1) The positioning is happening from a deep place of intimacy and rest/trust in Him, and doors were opening that were unimaginable and so glorious, to position God’s people to move into and further into these seven mountains of culture (arts and entertainment, business, family, religion, government, media, education) awakened to the truth that they are called as “salt and light” and releasing the Glory and goodness of God wherever they are positioned.
As the Lord is taking me deeper into His heart to see cities and nations transformed through influencing and taking the seven mountains for Jesus, I heard the seven mountains crying out “WHERE ARE THE JOSEPH’S?”
Instantly I was surrounded by the sense that many with a Joseph-like mantle and calling on upon their lives are hiding in caves because of the opposition and trial they have faced constantly and are weary and disillusioned about their mantle, release into their destiny and positioning.
I saw others still in the PIT process and waiting to be “called for”. In the midst of ‘process’, keeping their hearts positioned towards Lord, going deeper in intimacy and allowing the Lord to do the deep heart surgery, character refining and building work within their hearts. There was such a purifying work taking place in the PIT, they could recognise the work of the Spirit of God, and at the same time dreaming of the day of release and destiny.
AWAKEN! AWAKEN! A GREAT MOVE OF AWAKENING! I AM AWAKENING THE JOSEPH’S!
Over both of these areas I saw the Spirit of God blowing powerfully. A mighty rushing wind and as it blew fiercely I heard the words “AWAKEN! AWAKEN! A GREAT MOVE OF AWAKENING! I AM AWAKENING THE JOSEPH’S!!!”
For the past few years (2012 and February 2016) the Lord has been highlighting the positioning of the Joseph’s to me, almost like the ‘lead up and preparation’ for a great REVEALING.
As I heard the seven mountains crying out “Where are the JOSEPH’s?” I was surrounded by the sense of the “FULLNESS OF TIME” has arrived for the Joseph’s to be DELIVERED and POSITIONED!!!!!! VINDICATION is UPON you!
There has been an INTENSE preparation over the Joseph’s and that has been to mature you in intimacy with Jesus. To prepare, train, purify and refine you but you are now being CALLED FOR.
JOSEPH’S YOU ARE BEING RELEASED AND INCREASED
The PIT you have been in is now turning to POSITION! Your destiny and increase is about to MANIFEST! Networks, connections, and open doors are open you, a strategic placing to release the word of the Lord and divine wisdom and strategy to AFFECT THE NATIONS!!!!!
Your positioning in this season will see the move of the Spirit THROUGH YOU to affect cities and nations. There is an extension of tent pegs and sphere’s of influence opening up in this season for the Joseph’s to move in with their mouths FULL OF TRUTH.
WHERE YOU HAVE FACED POISON, YOU SHALL NOW SEE PROMOTION
Where there has been intense attack, where there has been venomous poison words, intense jealousy and lies of the enemy coming at you and the dreams the Lord has given you, the Lord is turning the tables. He has strengthened you and taught you how to fight using His Word, and broken off strongholds of the fear of man. He has taught you to keep your heart pure towards Him and others in the assault, and He is now positioning you for GREAT promotion. The VERY AREAS that these venomous poison words, and lies hit, is the VERY AREA the Lord is now positioning you in with great FAVOUR and PROMOTION. Your roots have gone deep in Jesus in the PIT so you can STAND TALL, STRONG, MATURE and with great integrity and character in the favour. His Glory will shine brighter than ever through you than you have ever seen in this new positioning of promotion.
DO NOT FEAR, THE LORD IS USING YOU TO OPEN UP A NEW PAGE OF DESTINY FOR INDIVIDUALS AND NATIONS
The Joseph’s will speak in this season with such truth and boldness and their words saturated in the love of Jesus with sharp accuracy of heavenly strategy that there will be GREAT TURNAROUND seen on increased levels in the seven mountains from the grass roots to the top of the mountains. Everywhere the Spirit of God will move through these Joseph’s there will be an ACTIVATION for the destiny and dreams of individuals and nations AWAKENED!
Increase and momentous breakthrough is coming upon the Joseph’s personally and corporately in this season. You shall move forward with crowns of wisdom and heavenly strategy as you are positioned in places you never dreamed in this season. Positioned to release the strategy of heaven and see BREAKTHROUGH.
The Lord has been developing the revelation of the power of RESTING in HIM in the TESTING many of the Joseph’s have walked lately. They shall now see effectual doors and domino effects of breakthrough released THROUGH the Joseph’s as they minister.
DO NOT RUN AND HIDE, THIS IS YOUR TIME TO SHINE
Do not run and hide! Stay positioned and watch the Lord position you to see the greatest move of His Spirit through you that you have ever seen. You have been prepared for such a time as this!
He is not only activating your destiny and bringing you out of the caves and the pits more AWAKE than you have ever been, He is restoring to you YOUR DREAMS that have felt long forgotten.
Joseph’s you MUST take your place in this season as the Lord opens doors for you. The seven mountains of culture are crying out for you to arise!!! Say “YES” to Jesus again and watch and see the beautiful positioning hand of God. More shall be added to you in a day of obedience to Him than you have ever seen.
You’re being called for in this season! It’s time to step in as the voices of HOPE, but not only positioned as those voices of HOPE, but those who release HOPE AND STRATEGY!!! Your area of influence is about to TURN IT’S HEAD to you because of the wisdom and strategy of heaven upon you to bring LIFE and BREAKTHROUGH to that very mountain! From the grassroots to the top of the mountain, He is using you to REROUTE and CHANGE history and release DESTINY!!!!
THE MEDIA MOUNTAIN IS CALLING FOR YOU JOSEPH’S!!!
I saw specifically the media mountain calling for the Joseph’s. The Lord is sending you into the media mountain in this season to release a great move of His Spirit to see the COMMUNICATION of heaven released. The prophetic is moving into the media mountain in explosive, increased ways in this season through the Joseph’s (and many other ways) to release the strategic revelation of heaven that will see the media mountain affect and changed by the revelation of the God who SPEAKS. Our beautiful, creative, powerful all knowing Jesus will speak life, revelation, insight and wisdom through His Joseph’s in the media mountain in this season that will see unprecedented signs, wonders and turnarounds take place where the GOOD NEWS of the Gospel and GOODNESS of God is going to be communicated in NEW, FRESH and CREATIVE ways.
