Tim Sheets: 'Doors to New History Are Now Opening - A New Movement Will Now Move Forth'

Tim Sheets: 'Doors to New History Are Now Opening - A New Movement Will Now Move Forth'

Steve Shultz
The following is a Prophetic Word given by Apostle Tim Sheets at the conference "The Cry" last week with guests Lou Engle, Dutch Sheets, Tim Sheets, Mark Casto, Jimmy Lovejoy, Isaiah Saldivar and James Taylor. This conference brought together the generations and we heard from the Generals and we heard from the Sons.
Prophetic word spoken by Apostle Tim Sheets on Thursday, July 17, 2014:
"A New Movement - A Pure Stream of My Gospel"
"The Spirit of the Lord declares to His Church – Doors to new history are now opening. A new movement will now move forth. A new stream from My Throne is flowing and it will be a pure stream of My Gospel. For the stream of My Gospel has been diverted and dammed up by those who wanted the benefits of reservoired blessings; but I will now blow up the religious dams. I will now discipline the spiritual hoarders and I will have a Gospel that flows freely with My Spirit. (Photo by Robert Bartow "The Way Fleece Blanket" via elijahshopper.com)
"My movement will move. It is built to move and it will move empowered by the fresh winds of My Spirit and soaked with fresh oil. It shall be a pure Gospel stream that is lit with the fire of My cause, one that I can confirm with signs, with wonders, and with miracles, one that is not diluted with flesh or pride or immorality or greed, one that I can back with awesome Kingdom assets, one that I can marshal My angel armies behind; a Gospel of awesome power that will now surge forward, and the generations will synergize their efforts together for the revival of ingathering such has not been seen before.

"A Shift In Leadership Will Now Occur...Who Are They?"
"And I am calling to My Gideons – come Gideons! Come from your hiding places and stop the raiding of harvests. I have seen you behind the winepress. I have seen your secret toil. I have heard your cries for relief. Now hear My cry. Now hear My voice rise and see the strong arm of the Lord your God. I have seen your heart and I will now empower you. I will defeat the enemy, and you will enjoy the spoils of victory. You will say, 'Our enemy has resourced us. Our enemy has stored abundance for us. We have more because of war.'
"A shift in leadership will now occur," says the Lord. "A new breed of leaders will be revealed in My Kingdom. The obscure ones who have served faithfully will now receive promotion. Though man has not seen, I have seen. It will be said, 'Where did they come from? Who are they?'
"And I will advocate saying, 'These are they who have come from My presence. These are they who would not compromise. These are they who would not be muzzled. These are they who would not bow to darkness. These are they who would not appease humanity with enticing words but have stood strong with My words.' (Photo by Jennifer Page "His Flame" via elijahshopper.com)
"They did not flinch. They did not bow their knee to blended religion and doctrines of men. They did not tolerate the diluting of My message and the mocking of My ways. They have stood unashamed for Me. Now I will stand unashamed for them. I have proclaimed their victory and I will oversee it.
"The Birthing of Forerunners Who Will Run..."
"Multiplied grace is now flowing. Bound souls shall be set free. Captive hearts shall be delivered. The blinded by sin and iniquity shall be liberated from Hell's bondage as the revival of ingathering now springs forward.
"The synergized generation in sync with My angel armies and soaked in the presence of My Spirit will now leap forward into great revival. It will be a movement that moves – moves in power, moves with passion, moves in purity. Notable miracles will spring forth. They are leaping in your midst.
"The revival in the womb of My intercessors is now leaping. It is leaping from the womb of their travail. It is now time for the birthing of forerunners who will run. Leap into your destiny. Leap through the open door. Leap into your future." –Spoken by Apostle Tim Sheets

P-ENDURE ALL THINGS FOR LOVE


SAPPHIRE THRONE MINISTIRES/FACEBOOK

ENDURE ALL THINGS FOR LOVE

I hear His whisper...

"The word I speak to you today is ENDURANCE. I call you to be faithful unto the end, even as I loved My disciples unto the end. The burden you carry must always be brought to the cross and left forever at My feet. Others will not understand the load you carry and the secret woundings of your soul, but I understand. 

"You must never compare yourself to another, but bring your cares to the One who cares. You will never be asked to carry more than you can endure, but it will be more than you think. I call you to stretch your faith until it is greater than your burden.

"I have called you to be a faithful warrior of My love. The woundings of your soul bring you into deeper love. You see the momentary pain, but I see the blossoms of love beginning to open within you, yielding a sweeter fragrance. Even when you feel disappointed My love never fails.

"When you are wounded by love, My mercy still stands higher than the heavens. I call you to hold every experience of your life as sacred, and then you will discover My goodness and My power to work everything together for good as you love Me.

"Speak over your life this day these words, 'I will endure all things for love.'

"As you remain faithful to Me, love grows within you. My love and My peace will be the twin fruits from the Tree of Life to sustain you and sweeten your joy. Let nothing deter you from your pursuit of My face. Those who love Me most I will transform the most. Let every opportunity that comes to you this day be the open doorway into My presence.

"I speak over you, My faithful one, endure all things for love as a good soldier of Jesus Christ, and always set His faithfulness before your eyes as your supreme example. And then you will not fail, and you will not stumble. For I will hold you in My love even as I held Him in My love throughout His ordeals. I am with you and will exchange your weakness for My strength as you wait upon Me."

Jason Hooper: You're About To Launch Out Into 'The Deep'

Jason Hooper: You're About To Launch Out Into 'The Deep'



Jason and Tina HooperWe are on the verge of a significant spiritual shift. Can you feel it? Spiritual tides are beginning to turn as the Lord is drawing many into extended times of intimacy and encounter in preparation for what He is prepared to pour out.
In Luke 5:1-11 we find Peter, a previously accomplished fisherman, who had been fishing all night and had caught nothing. He had come to the end of where his prior knowledge and previous understanding that had been gleaned from past seasons could take him in this "NOW new day."
To "come out and cross over," he was going to have to launch out of what he had known and leaned on in times past to now enter into where he had been created to be! He was going to have to trust the Lord and choose to lean not on what had been familiar and safe to his natural mind in order to discover that his entire life, up until now, was simply training for where he was about to go (see Proverbs 3:5-6). Where he had previously been a fisher for men, he was about to be called and commissioned as a fisher of men!
Peter and his buddies had just returned to shore and were cleaning their nets with heads hung low in disappointment when Jesus all of a sudden jumps into Peter's boat and asks that he push away from the shore, so that He can instruct the multitude who had gathered to hear Him. Once Jesus had finished teaching, He turned to Peter and instructed him to first, "Launch out into the deep," and, secondly, "Let down your nets for a catch."
To this Peter replied, "'Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing;nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.' And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking"(Luke 5:5-6).
There is something about trusting and obeying the One who created the fish that you are fishing for that requires transparency and a willingness to let go of your personal concerns connected with what others will think if you really "go for it"! These "concerns," and the fear of man that typically empowers them, are oftentimes the hindrances that keep so many from finding their voice, their creative medium, and eventually their calling. (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)
It is time to trust Him, obey His Word, and let down your proverbial net.It is in this place that transition occurs as tides of desire begin to turn and you find that what you have longed for and pursued in your own strength in times past now longs for and pursues you by His grace and with His power.
So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. Luke 5:7
The Small Word That Releases The Most Power In Your Life
As the Lord begins to enter into boats that have been built for Him through willingness and obedience to His Word, powerful partnerships and Kingdom alliances are about to be formed that will bring with them a multiplied outcome in response to what we add to the Body with the Lord at the Head. This will result in individual and corporate breakthrough, allowing and empowering many to "break out" of the boxes of religious conformity that have attempted to capture and imprison the creativity of so many in times past through control, manipulation, and misunderstanding; these would try to bait individuals into performance requiring you to prove your self-worth and produce in your own strength for the approval of others. When He breaks open – we all break out!
The one who breaks open will come up before them; they will break out, pass through the gate, and go out by it; their king will pass before them, with the Lord at their head. Micah 2:13
ElijahList Prophetic Resources


As great as this "catch" was, it pales in comparison to how radically the lives of those who found themselves on the shore that day were about to be transformed as they were about to offer to the Creator of the entire universe what He had desired most in their lives – their "yes." They did not know where that "yes" was about to take them, what it would entail, and how it would change the world, rewriting history and setting into motion divine purpose for all who were willing to say, "Yes," to Him from that day forward.Oh, the power that can be released from such a small word that opens such big doors!
What Made the Difference?
Luke 5:11 says, "So when they had brought their boats to land, they forsook all and followed Him."
The word "forsook" means to leave behind. In one day, they abandoned their entire way of life and everything that had been so familiar to them in times past to pursue Him and to know God!
Come, and let us return to the Lord... Let us know, let us pursue the knowledge of the Lord. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, like the latter and former rain to the earth. Hosea 6:1, 3 (Photo via Wikimedia Commons)
What had happened? What made the difference? When Peter was willing and obedient to simply do what the Lord asked, the harvest of what he had previously longed and believed for came to him (see Isaiah 1:19).
We are about to step into a day where what we have previously chased in our own strength is going to now chase us as we enter into the fullness of fellowship with Him, bringing us into perfect alignment for our new assignments (see Psalm 23:5-6). In that moment of absolute surrender and submission in obedience to the Lord's invitation, Peter found a better way – "The Way."
The desires that had previously prioritized Peter's steps were in one moment of divine exchange replaced with a new desire – the desire to encounter and walk with the One who is the Desire of All Nations (see Haggai 2:7). In this place of undivided devotion to Him, He completely captures our hearts and, like the disciples, we willingly abandon everything that has held us back in times past to pursue Him wholeheartedly. It is in this place that we truly and fully find Him (see Jeremiah 29:13).
I believe Jesus' invitation to Peter is still being given to us today. Are you ready to leave the shore and become something more? Can you feel the depth of God's heart calling to you in this season, beckoning you to launch out and dive in? Can you feel the depth of your spirit desiring Him more than your next breath? If so, let's take a moment and respond in prayer to this invitation.
Let's pray: Dear Lord, I choose today to lay aside the weight of what's been and the fear of "what ifs." I ask You for Your grace to leave the shores of my comfort zone and dive into the depths of Your plans and purposes for my life. Today, I declare that I am crossing a line and my tide is beginning to turn. I trust You to bring Your Word to pass in my life as I launch out and dive in to Your promises and purposes for my life.
