The Spirit of the Lord Says,
“Today, I am coming to release greater instructions about the narrow way available to my prophets who have stayed calm in a time of shaking. You have boldly shared the truth of who I am without denying what you have seen. Today, I am coming to outline how I want you to steward an increasing measure of authority.
Over the past 2+ years, I removed your false security. I sent you fresh revelation daily, and like Elijah, you knew me as “God your Daily Bread”. Eating the bread of my presence, I consecrated you for myself. I taught you as a parent teaches a toddler to speak; correcting your syntax, your pronunciation, and giving you bolder and bolder words until you really began to sound like me.
The time has come now for me to unveil the authority of Christ in you. Enter in by my Spirit! This paradigm shift starts in the Spirit and ripples into your natural circumstances. You must choose to enter in intentionally and in advance of your circumstantial breakthrough.
Quiet, Increased Authority is the Mark of the New Paradigm
Today I am coming to instruct you about the authority that will rise on you as you enter in. You will bear audacious, shocking Christlike authority. If the thought of carrying a Christlike authority puts you in holy fear of the Lord, listen carefully and I will explain the limits of your role. I will not give you more authority than you can bear. I will not make you co-equal with my son, but I am increasing your delegated authority because at last, I have purified prophets. I will give you the grace to escape pride and false responsibility. Simply keep your eyes on me.
Today, I have set the stage for you to appear as Christ. Before, I called you to speak and sow, to develop, tear down, and establish. In this season, I am calling you to embody the fullness of who I am. Instead of eloquent speeches and effects, I am calling you like a silent model on the runway to wear Christ. Your responsibility is simple obedience, being led onto the runway, allowing Christ to be revealed in you, and seeking your reward from me off stage. Gone are the days of performance prophesy. As you simply stand in my quiet authority, the world will recognize that I am enough.
How to Enter In? Pulling Authority down from Recognition of Who I AM
To enter into a season of co-ruling and authority, pull on the weight of who I am. My character is limitless, and in this season I refuse to be limited. In past seasons, I gave you partial weight of glory based on what I have DONE. But in this season, you must drink and pull on the stream of who I AM. Drink deeply! Worship the full expression of my character, the full expression of my emotions, past to present! From worshipping who I AM, I will give you the grace to pull down the level of authority that corresponds to what you have experienced my my character. I will dress you in what you have experienced of me. The deeper your solidarity with me, the greater your authority. By identifying with me on a deeper level, I will cause others to identify you more deeply with Christ. In this era of Paradigm Shift, you will be the Prophet of My Experience. People will experience me through encountering you.
Do not be startled. This ground is more familiar than you may realize. You have left the one-man, one-word de-construction age of Gideon and come into the rulership age of David, but I AM the one who does not change. The truth of who I AM is the common thread between both ages, that gave strength to Gideon (Judges 6:22) and authority to David (Psalm 63).
Instructions for the Prophets: Let Your Weight Rest
You did not buy your authority, it was given to you by my son Jesus. The authority he gives you is delegated, allocated specifically to establish his Kingdom within this time period. I will sovereignly give some of you an even greater degree of authority because I urgently need what you are building to be established on the Earth. Do not be surprised when prophets whose ministries carry a new revelation of my character receive increased authority by my sovereign choice. It will not be by their choice either, but by their agreement. Do not envy one another, but collaborate to pool your resources so that Jesus can receive even more worship. Be on your guard and build alliances based on humility. Satan will send the appearance of increased authority to some prophets, but their pride will expose them. Prophets who have received their authority directly from heaven will demonstrate an equal measure of increased humility. Aspire to pass the test and ask for grace for increased humility and wisdom.
Humility may cause you to be surprised by the ease of bearing this degree of authority. To the pure in heart, it will be simple. Jesus will share his visions. Be unflinching: Do not shrink back, and do not exalt yourself. Simply follow his plans. In fear of the Lord, you are right to sense the urgency of the hour, because I am l moving in power. Still, do not let the increasing extreme conditions cause you to take your eyes off me. You know who I am.
You have stepped forward to assume responsibility, but you must also take off false responsibility. You did not design these circumstances, so you are not responsible for others’ choices in them. To bear my weight, you must become a master of taking off every unnecessary weight. If you take on a false responsibility for other people’s response to my justice or join them in injustice, it will crush you (Matthew 18:6). Only agree with me and steward your portion of responsibility, which is unwavering obedience. This is not the day of equivocation, but a clear yes. When you are afraid, I will work within your emotions and human limits to show you why my plans are better.
I, Christ in you, will make you a stumbling block. Remember the story of the judgment of the Philistines? The authority of my ark defaced Philistine idols (1 Samuel 5). The authority of my ark caused people physical tumors and sickness (1 Samuel 5). Even as you allow me to be God the Judge, do not be ignorant of the severity of the season. In the fiery furnace of the past year, I have poured out grace to remove every root of offense and bitterness in your hearts. I healed you so that in days of increased authority, you would not let offense crush the one I want to save! My purpose is not about you! I have made you a sign of the times so that you can show mercy. Remember Peter’s holy terror when he encountered Jesus as a Prophet (Luke 5:8). From the least to the greatest, the days are increasing when I recieving a prophet means welcoming the presence of holy terror into the room. As I make you even more intense, you must also bear greater gentleness. I will hold you personally accountable for how you respond to my flock (Luke 12:48, Ezekiel 36). If you use your increased authority to rule over them with greater harshness, I will use MY increased authority to judge you more harshly. Be warned: a season of increased authority means that the consequences for poor leadership have increased.
As I remove every unnecessary weight and increase your capacity to bear holy weight, I am giving you a different standard to measure organizations. Before, I called you to release favor to the degree that others received my presence in you (Matthew 10:9-14). Now, I am calling you to release weight to organizations in proportion to the degree they receive Christ’s authority in you. You are my representatives. I will require organizations to make a choice to receive or deny Christ through you. Come to them in the meekness of wisdom, and watch to see who is willing to honor him. From the greatest to the least, no one will be exempt from the requirement of a righteous response.
I have called an end to favor based on the personality of the prophet! With humility, organizations must honor the prophets and apostles who have the specific delegated remit for the sphere of society they wish to influence. They will receive the crucial breakthrough and rulership they need when they honor my prophets. Again, I have created this shift to dismantle the Kingdom of Man and demonstrate the value of honor to my Kingdom Government. In Christ, be honorable, and worthy of honor.
Now, keep watch! The responsibility to release weight is greater than the responsibility to release favor. Watch to see how much organizations receive Christ as King, as the only Way, Truth, and Life. Only let your weight rest on organizations that respect his authority. It will not crush them. Stay close to me, and I will show you. I will hold you responsible to judge which groups can bear the weight. If you release my weight on an organization that does not have the capacity to receive me, I will hold you responsible. Repent and ask me for wisdom.
Instructions for the Church and Prophets: Recognizing the Narrow Way
My Bride, I want you to know the times and the seasons (Jeremiah 8:7). I want you to know and recognize the narrow way I am putting before you.

And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
|The weight of a prophetic word coming from the revelation of what God is DOING||The weight of a prophetic word coming from the revelation of WHO GOD IS|
|Permission for: Partial visitation||Hunger for: God’s character in all it’s complexity, fullness of who he is|
Instructions for the Church: Receiving Paradigm Shift Prophets
Church, I am also calling you into increased responsibility to test and respond to the prophets who operate in my name. I am giving you increased grace for discernment of humility and pride in the prophets. Church leaders, you are my gate keepers. Apostles, you are my region keepers. You must be more certain of a prophet’s humility before you ask for a personal or organizational word of prophesy! Do not judge by appearances only! Ask me, and I will direct you to prophets with tested character. Do not be startled if my choice of representative surprises you.
You have contended for a visitation, but during this time period, my prophets ARE the visitation. Only invite them if you are hungry for reformation and will contend for your region/organization/family/sector’s future. Make room in your hearts for them, and make room in your hearts for me. Ask me to search your hearts in advance of a gathering, and I will faithfully expose whatever still needs addressed. I want you to receive every good thing I have for you, but tend the to ground of your hearts so that their words can bear fruit. I do not want you to circle the mountain forever, I want to bring you out of the cyclical challenges you and your organizations are facing. Let me come minister to you in reformation.
When my prophets come into a room, you will feel the word that they have come to release before they speak it. I am increasing your capacity to feel my emotions outside of the prophets so that when they speak, you will recognize that I have affirmed their testimony. They will be storytellers, they will be message bearers, they may speak intensely and they may speak softly. While their humility may cause them to bear a subtle approach, watch to see whether their messages are backed by natural phenomena and signs before, during, and after they are share. I will increasingly back them by signs so that you will understand that they are only repeating what they are seeing and hearing from me. The humble will allow their vindication to come from me, and will not self defend. You will feel my weight and purity on them, and recognize that there is a required response. Let them demonstrate what that response should look like.
I am sending you purified prophets, so respond to them with the honor required! I have been a Mother in travail over these prophets, and they are precious to me (1 Samuel 2). I have myself have woven mantles for them and continue weaving them. I have called them to replace prophets like the sons of Eli, and I clap my hands in excitement for what I will do through them! Do not respond to them in entitlement like Saul, but in contrition like David. Watch your heart and mirror my joy in receiving these prophets. I will use them to bless you, but I want you to honor them.
Instructions for the Prophets: Embody Christ’s Mercy, Let God Send Justice Externally
When Christ came to you, he did not come as Judge but as Redeemer (John 8:14-17). He acted in accordance to my dearest wishes: I did not send my Son into the world to condemn it, but to save the world through him (John 3:17). Prophets, just as Christ withheld judgment even to those who rightly deserved it but left judgment to me, I am calling you to abide in mercy. I will give you the grace to abide in the full spectrum of my emotions, but I want you to contend to abide in mercy so that I myself will be called “God the Righteous Judge.” Let our roles be separate. I will cause the circumstances around you to confirm your delegated words and mete out justice. As for yourselves, pursue reconciliation as much as possible. Yearn for it and press in. Contend for gentleness, so that in increasingly extreme conditions, my wrath can be increasingly averted (Genesis 18:16-33). Remember that Jesus refrained from judgment for the majority of his ministry because he wanted them to come into repentance. You must increasingly embody Jesus’ gentleness as I mete out my power.
Put on the right attitude of Christ: “I do not judge, but even if I do judge, my judgment is true, because I am not alone; I am with the Father who sent Me” (John 8:15-16). “My Father sees what is done in secret, he will reward you” (Matthew 6:4). “Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him” (John 5:23).
Prophets, do not speak in self defense. In Jesus, let yourself be vindicated by the Spirit. When people do not understand the effect you have in a space, ask for discernment to understand whether they are teachable or whether you the Father will need to show them directly. When you sense that it is not yours to explain, simpy say: “I will ask the Lord to reveal it to you.” Just as Jesus waited until his true nature was revealed to the disciples, do not speak prematurely but let my Spirit lead. When you speak a word in advance of my right timing to release it, the people will prematurely be responsible to bear the weight of it. They will not have time to go on the right stewardship process, and you will have limited their capacity to freely choose me. Do not put heavy burdens on the people’s shoulders through your carelessness! Wait until the right time to speak or say nothing. If you come to me, I will give you wisdom for pacing and timing.
Prophets, your own leadership success depends on your capacity to mete out mercy! I have called you to mercy to save your own life, for your good and not for other people! Remember that the reason I spared David’s life and did not write him out of my story was because of the many times he showed mercy (to Saul, to Abner, to Mephibosheth, to many).
Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom. 13For judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgmentJames 2:12-13
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.Matthew 5:7
Prophets, judge impartially. Even as I call you to mercy, recognize that your life is not your own. David fell when he failed to judge his own sin (2 Samuel 12:10). David’s sin entered into Amnon, and he failed to judge Amnon’s wicked treatment of Tamar (2 Samuel 13). Be warned: There is no partiality with God (Romans 2:11). Do not let the sin of one of your members devour your entire organization! By failing to reconcile, failing to respond, and failing to administer consequences, you provide the conditions for sins to repeat and spread (1 Corinthians 5:1-13). I know that you love one another and that administering consequences may grieve you. But in increased responsibility, I have called you to be like David mourning Abner, embodying justice without partiality (2 Samuel 3:31-39). Even in tears, I may call you to judge sin (Matthew 10:35). Rely on my wisdom, and I will show you the right process (Matthew 18:15-35). Grieve with me, I do not want anyone to suffer harm or loss either. But rely on me, and follow the directions I show you. You are not your own. I am the God of Impartiality, who judges justly. Ask me for the grace to follow my justice, even in tears.
Instructions for the Prophets: Prepare to Dress in White
Prophets, this is the season to contend to wear white (Revelation 3:5). Put your house in order so that as you judge others, you will not be disqualified (1 Corinthians 9:27). I am coming back for a spotless Bridge, so settle your accounts (Luke 16:5-8). Forgive the debts of those who have sinned against you so that you will be forgiven an even greater portion. Make wrong things right if you have defrauded anyone, and restore back anything you have stolen (Matthew 5:21-26). I have prepared a season of Holy Spirit set ups to expose who is innocent and who is guilty. This will not necessarily depend on actions that have already passed, but on the level of each person’s genuine repentance (Psalm 51:27). Be careful not to judge one another; I, the Lord know the Heart (1 Samuel 16:7). Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent (Revelation 3:19).
Wear white as a sign and an aspiration; aspire towards the blamelessness of Christ! Pray for fear of the Lord to humbly admit areas where you still have not arrived. Pray for the blood of Jesus to expose whatever work still needs done in you. Ask me for the grace to finish the healing and restoration process, so that you will be truly blameless.
You have heard that it was said to the ancients, ‘Do not murder’c and ‘Anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ 22But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, ‘Raca,’e will be subject to the Sanhedrin.f But anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be subject to the fire of hell.g
23 So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24leave your gift there before the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift.
25 Reconcile quickly with your adversary, while you are still on the way to court. Otherwise, he may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. 26Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.Matthew 5:21-26
1 Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven,
whose sins are covered.
2 Blessed is the man
whose iniquity the LORD does not count against him,
in whose spirit there is no deceit.Psalm 32:1-2 (All Psalm 32)
For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves.1 Corinthians 11:29
Sowing Revelation 11 Prophetic Authority
I am using this season to sow the Revelation 11 Prophetic authority that you and your descendents will bear.
Be unflinching as you speak, and be unafraid of persecution. Do not be afraid of loss of reputation. Remember that in an abstract and literal sense, I have the power to bring my prophets back to life (Revelation 11:11). Do not let anyone convince you that compromise will be safer than embodying the full weight of your authority. Satan tempted Jesus with partial authority, and he endured even through death so I could raise him to authority (Matthew 4, Philippians 2:9). Watch me back you with signs and wonders, even if that means resurrection.
This is the Revelation 11 anointing that causes earthquakes, because the earth is trembling under the fear of the Lord (Revelation 11:13).
This is the level of authority required to shake the witchcraft out of places in the world that have been unyielding, where missionaries and other workers without exception are cursed with health issues and are forced to leave.
Use this “Season of Increasing Weight” as preparation for the courage and authority you will need to command nature and consequences. Do not worry, I will continue giving you instructions throughout this season until you reach the maturity and stature to bear that anointing. Lean into the process and pull on my weight. Let me guide you into the next level of authority and you will be unshaken.
