What Heaven is Saying TodayBy Pastor James Durham

Hanukkah Sameach! 

This morning, the angels called me up to the worship room and announced that it was time to praise the Lord and give thanks for Yeshua. As I began to worship angels began to manifest. There were several healing angels (one for me) and I released them to minister the healing Father God had sent them to minister. I received it. How about you? They came for you too. 

Then I began to receive several visions and had a visit in Heaven. First I saw something like al lighted square (with slightly rounded sides). It was glowing with a light blue light. An “X” in the center had divided the square into four equal sections. The Lord said that in the same way as there will be four natural seasons in 2018 there will also be four distinct spiritual seasons. The first season will be a season of judgment. The second a season of great grace. I am still waiting to hear what the other two spiritual seasons will bring. I believe we need to get into some serious repentance in the closing days before the season of judgment opens. This is more important today than knowing what the other two seasons will bring. I plan to spend these days in repentance as the Lord suggests. Remember, the Lord continuously makes things new. Revelation 21:5, Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” 

Then I was lifted up to Heaven and experienced something very beautiful which speaks to me of all four seasons in the spiritual realm. I was standing in front of an ancient house made of stone. Ivy had grown up around the house giving it a very old appearance. A powerful light was shining on the house from the back. The light was primarily on the right side (from the perspective of the light) of the house. The house seemed to be warming up from the powerful light in order to receive visitors. Then I became aware that the light was not from the Sun, but from the transfigured Son. Matthew 17:2, “and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light.” His light is shining to warm up a safe haven for us. 

This light from the Lord was falling primarily on the right side of the house. The Holy Spirit let me know that this was a prophetic word about a powerful authority being released to those who are following Him. I thought about Luke 10:19 and how we have never fully embraced this promise (“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”) The authority being given in these seasons is supposed to be warm and loving – not judging and condemning. We will use this authority to let love draw people to Him this year. Many people will be more receptive to the gospel in these seasons because of the judgment they are experiencing. Others will harden their hearts and be more distant. I saw a great divide happening because of the choices people will make. I heard the Lord saying that this will be a season of choices. People will have to choose one or the other. There will be no middle ground. There will be not fence riding. You must choose, but be careful to choose wisely. 

Then the Lord gave me a wonderful vision. I saw a great light from the Lord shining on Egypt. It was driving the darkness away and letting people see the glory of the Lord. This was awesome and I thought about Habakkuk 2:14,For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.Most of us have been praying for this and this is the season of its manifestation. I began to celebrate for those who have had a burden for Egypt to hear and receive the Gospel of the Kingdom. These are the seasons to persevere and never give up. The past seasons have been hard and disappointing, but now is the time of harvest. 

Finally, I was shown several places around the world where the Lord is establishing places of refuge and places on anointing and glory. This is the season for us to move to a new level of glory. I remembered the promise in 2 Corinthians 3:18, But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” The veil of deception has been dark and deep in the past season, but it is time for the veil to be lifted from the Lord’s people. Don’t focus on the negatives of the past season, but help people to experience the Glory of the Lord in these four new seasons. The Lord is calling us to help prepare the people and to facilitate their experience of His glory. The darker the world; the deeper the deception and the greater the tribulation – the brighter and greater the Glory will appear to the people. Don’t fight the darkness. Let the light of His Glory drive it away. Amen and Amen!
