2011: The Year of Opening Doors
Dec. 8th, 2010
thru PRISCILLA VAN SUTPHIN
Someone had asked me to share on what the Lord has been telling me about 2011. Honestly had not even gotten that far. But today in talking to a friend. Prophecy started coming out as I began to type. Then tonight a series of impressions and I got the words, “this coming year will be a year of open doors” so came to computer to write down what He might say. This was a different means of the Lord speaking to me in some ways.
He is the Door
The Way is through prayer, worship, & declaring the promises of God in His Word. In Acts 15 He says:
Acts 15:16-17 NKJV 'After! this I will return and will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will set it up; 17 So that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord, Even all the Gentiles who are called by My name, Says the Lord who does all these things.'
In David’s temple there was 24/7 worship and prayer. The Lord indicated
to have more communion with Him, all the more as the time of His appearing
comes closer. This means more INTIMACY with Him which we know comes from prayer, reading of the word and meditating on it, and worship brings the presence.
Susan’s word I read tonight said:
“OH HEAR OH KNOW MY SWEET SWEET LIBERTY BILLOWING UPON THOSE IN GLORIOUS INTIMACY ….COME CLOSER AND REFRAIN NOT YOUR HEART NEW WAFTS AND HIGHER WAVES WILL SURELY START”
Presence also comes from living the WORD. That isn’t mentioned much but is so true. When the LORD sends you into the store to get milk and you have a divine appointment and follow through with what HE tells you, THAT also brings presence. Signs and wonders will follow the preaching of the WORD--However it is preached ! It is HIS compassion moving through you that will bring miracles. And this will be a year for miracles as His glory increases.
The times will require more intimacy to keep our sanity. Many will have to give up their homes and property due to hardships, but the LORD will restore and we will have what we need. Those in the world will not even have that.
“Many of you will be used as reservoirs of the Lord’s glory to be poured out upon MANY who will come to us for answers. Hard times will force many to lawlessness, but others will seek answers in the LORD. There will be more lawlessness this year, due to economic collapses. So be wise oh sons and daughters, do not spend your money on unfruitfulness. Support one another like the early Christians - you will have to SHARE your means with others.
It is not a time for selfishness, but it is also not a time for giving in to charlatans and carpetbaggers within the body who are lying to get more money, while they live in 3 million dollar homes. I will call many of them to GIVE up their lifestyle and if they refuse, they will be judged, in order to return their hearts to humility. Be careful not to scoff. For you know none of you is perfect. But do not give in to baseless wantonness of false shepherds.”
Doors of heaven will open and blessing of His glory will be poured out
“Visitations will start to cause a stir, and the excitement of His presence and that of His kingdom will not be able to be contained. A burst here, and a burst of glory there !”
I had an impression of a sledge hammer in the arms of a woman like when you tear down a wall, only she was tearing down the ceiling. So I knew it was a spiritual ceiling on our prayers, and that the woman represented the intercessors in the body, prophetically living out their lives of sacrifice, sowing into the body of Christ, and that there was a SUDDEN breakthrough.
Then I perceived with the breakthrough, rough openings and BRIGHT LIGHT shining through those holes. Next, the woman was knocked to the floor at seeing the light, a position of humility. I then got an impression that God was going to humble every high thing, every bit of self exaltation in the body will be removed. Every proud and arrogant person will be humbled.
[pride vs humility: http://www.upstreamca.org/pridevshumility.html ]
There is a sense of a fear of the LORD coming that will truly humble those who are always critical, bitter and haughty, in holding on to their sins and making excuses, without seeking the Lord. Those of course who are seeking Him for freedom will get that which they seek. For blessed are those who hunger and thirst for RIGHTEOUSNESS, for they will be filled ! As has been said before, the last shall be first and the first shall be last in this hour. And those UNPREPARED in their hearts, who are too busy to pray, too busy to worship, too busy to be in intimacy will regret the lack of time with the LORD.
Doors of Opportunity
The doors of opportunity will not come as many expect in the prosperity movement. They will come at a great cost.
Evangelism: ministry to victims of disaster and misfortune
Increasing earthquakes, rioting, violence due to economy and gov’t
Increase in things that seem like accidents, like fires,
Destruction of property, businesses, but it will not be an accident.
Terrorists at home and abroad increasing activity. Some covert will
become overt ! People will be more frightened, and seek God.
“ I have called you to be salt and light, in a world filled with turmoil and violence. Great darkness is taking over the earth, and deep darkness it’s people. But I WILL arise over you. I will set my jewels in primary places of judgments that they may SHINE in that darkness and rebuke the darkness through deeds of kindness & mercy. My love is to GIVE AWAY. It is not just to keep it for yourself. It is for the giving. I am a GIVING GOD. I love what I create. I treasure you, and will stand with you as you reach out to others with what you have. You may say to me, ‘but I have nothing’. ‘I am not rich. I have not stored supplies’ and I will say to you. REMEMBER THE WIDOW AT ZAREPHATH”
[ 1 Kings 17:8 +] As we reach out to others, God will reach out to us.
Impression of many starting to move out, into jobs overseas or other
nations due to increasing hardships, and the increasing lawlessness.
Doors of entrepreneurial opportunity, will open through invention of
Things that help practical need to live more frugally. Those called to be
planted here & called to help in this time will be given what they need to
help. Some through natural means, but also through many supernatural
Impression that we must have GREATER FAITH for miraculous provision.
That’s a “no duh” for those of us who have been being prepared. But all
this will be a great surprise for many who have fallen asleep. They will
need those with wisdom and who have already seen the LORD do miracles
in the midst of great affliction. There was the impression too, the harder
the times, the more miracles God will do. [ Now I know this naturally as
I’ve been overseas, but many who have NOT seen the poverty in other
nations will be shocked at the great benevolence of the LORD. ]
Doors of hope & reconciliation
Unsaved family coming to God. As we gather in homes/church prayer
groups to pray for the situations at hand, we will see:
Waves of grace and glory, with JOY, due to answered prayers.
Startling miracles, signs and wonders at preaching of the cross!
“The Lord is saying many of those who have been in hiding will come forth into the streets and there will be great miracles just in everyday life situations. Jesus wants all the glory. He is not coming to glorify a specific region, area, city or church. Not that some cities/nations won’t see more of His glory, but that will be because of seeds sown by saints, like little old ladies praying for years, or those who’ve been in training sowing seeds in the opposites as the world, living out death to self.”
That which is coming in persecution will come because of the enemy rising up to oppose the manifestation of the HOLY SPIRIT in our presence. GREAT persecution is coming. I sense we must be ready to move at short notice, to
be available to the LORD, and to be ready to be hidden in the real sense, just like the Jews had to hide from the Nazi’s in WWII. This will be most stressful for the unsuspecting. We must be VERY DEPENDENT on the LORD. He has been trying to get us more dependent on HIM than our own selves. He wants us more intimate and alone with Him so that we have the instructions we need. Turn up the WORSHIP because there will come a time
soon enough when we will not be able to do it so boldly as we have. If we are to see the glory, we must have more WORSHIP because WORSHIP brings the presence like nothing else. But we are not to be religious. GOD is giving GRACE to do what HE wants us to do if we ASK for it !
More Church scandals will be uncovered with more government interventions due to misappropriated money. Shocking indiscretions, pedophilia being exposed even more, and homosexual connections in the church overall. Infidelities of all kinds exposed as government starts investigating more Churches. [ Reminded of dream of Hitler in the church – see book on Hitler dreams at www.upstreamca.org/freebooks.html ]
However the Lord warns us to be careful to discern, because there will also be many FALSE accusations against Christians. Pray and don’t ASSUME anything. The enemy wants to take people out and to rob, kill and destroy. But God will use him to bring judgment on those with false motives. [ The beast will hate the HARLOT ].
Despite more opposition, God will release the ELIJAH’s in the land to confront the jezebelic church, and to preach on the streets with great anointing that will bring great conviction, and power that will be demonstrated that will SHOCK people into submission. There is still a little preparation time for this though. The Lord has been so patient to wait on those needing more healing and deliverance. He will not leave you behind. So don’t walk in self condemnation or stress. Wait on the LORD and HE will speak. Be serious about asking for the healing and deliverance though.
Isa 60:1-5 AMP
1 ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you--rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! [Zech 8:23.]
2 For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. [Isa 60:19-22; Mal 4:2; Rev 21:2,3.]
3 And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. [Isa 2:2,3; Jer 3:17.]
4 Lift up your eyes round about you and see! They all gather themselves together, they come to you. Your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried and nursed in the arms.
5 Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and tremble with joy [at the glorious deliverance] and be enlarged; because the abundant wealth of the [Dead] Sea shall be turned to you, unto you shall the nations come with their treasures. [Ps 119:32.]
(dead sea, meaning the people dead spiritually )
