This was a message that God had given me to preach at a conference in TX in June of this year....I feel released to post the message as well as the prophetic word that GOD gave to me for this particular service...may you take what God has chosen to say and apply it to your life for HIS Kingdom work...

Shift, this was the theme of the conference this year...

the definition of shift is:

: to move or to cause (something or someone) to move to a different place, position, etc.

: to change or to cause (something) to change to a different opinion, belief, etc.

: to go or to cause (something) to go from one person or thing to another

to go through a change

to change place or position; to change direction

Since the beginning of time there have been shifts not only in history but in the spiritual realm as well. Most times we know and see that which is going on around us and never realize the shifts taking I began to study and seek God on what HE would have me to give to His people I quickly realized this would become a series of messages as just one could not do justice to what God was showing me...this is a condensed version of those messages along with the prophetic word from God...

Genesis 3:7 "The the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked;"
This is the first shift that God spoke to me some might think that the shift took place when they ate the forbidden fruit...but not so, the fruit was the temptation and the results of an act of disobedience brought forth a shift in the garden...Adam and Eve through disobedience brought sin into a sinless world...which shifted the power of light over darkness... Verse 21 " Also for Adam and his wife the Lord God made tunics of skin and clothed them."...this was the first sacrifice...shift two has just taken place...mankind is now made aware that only through blood sacrifice can he approach longer can man walk in unity with God in the garden...Verse 24 " So He (God) drove out the man; and placed Cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the tree of life." ....This was shift longer would man have access to eternal life through the ability to eat from the tree of longer would man live in the perfection to which God created them to longer would man live a life of ease and complete harmony with longer would man be able to walk in the cool of the day with God and talk freely with HIM....there are many more shifts in the Old Testament to go along with this message...but this is not where God was leading me for posting here....we will now go Luke 2:7 " Now she brought forth her firstborn Son and wrapped Him with swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn." On the night that Jesus was born there was a shift in the natural as well as in the spiritual realm...all of heaven was rejoicing at the birth of King Jesus...there was a shift in power on this night! No longer was mankind going to be subject to the sacrifice of animals for a blood covering on the altar of God...but the Lamb of God had been brought forth and with HIM there was a shift in the both the natural world and the spiritual world! The power that the enemy had stolen in the garden through disobedience was being shifted....without the birth of Christ Jesus there would be no shift from darkness to light entering the world. Praise God that provision was made through the birth of Christ....the next shift we read about in Luke 3:21-22 "When all the people were baptized, it came to pass that Jesus also was baptized; and while He prayed, the heaven was opened. (22) And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, " You are My Beloved Son; in You I am well pleased." God openly praised His Son before those who were at His baptism...the lighting of the Holy Spirit upon Jesus was a shift that brought Him a step closer to His appointed awesome that God Himself brought about the shift in the heavens to have a chat with Jesus to let Him know how well pleased He was with Him! Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit of God at His baptism as preparation for His ministry that was coming forth....Luke 4:1 "Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness." We know from reading the rest of these verses that Jesus was tempted and refused to fall to the will of the enemy as well as to His own flesh during this time of temptation....we seem to always focus on the temptations that satan put forth to Jesus during this time...but, we should look at the empowerment that was happening with each temptation...every time Jesus gave the enemy the WORD of GOD, there was a shift taking place in the spirit realm...a shift for the glory of GOD to be revealed in HIS SON....with each shift, there was an impartation from God to His Son....when you are led into the wilderness by the Spirit, it might just be so God can shift some things from the spiritual realm of heaven into you and your ministry for the kingdoms use...stop complaining and whining about being in the wilderness and wait to see if the Spirit of God has led you there to bring about a shift in your life....Luke 14 "Then Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and news of Him went out through all the surrounding region." Another shift has taken place here....God has brought the ministry of Jesus to the forefront and He was known throughout the region...when a shift comes into your life or ministry you do not have to promote yourself...God will do that for you....God will put you in the place that you need to be in due now the enemy is shaking in his boots because he has failed to make Jesus bow down to him and worship at his feet...there has been a shift in power and the enemy does not like it...and when God brings about the shift no man or enemy of God has power over it! Every shift caused by God is of HIS making and is subject only to HIM! Praise God that we live in a time where He is still bringing about shifts in the spirit and heavenly realms for His people...the next shift God began to speak to me about can be found in Mathew 27: 50-51 "And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. (51) The behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split," John 19:30 "So when Jesus, had received the sour wine, He said, " It is finished". When Jesus said "it is finished" there was a monumental shift in power and authority! No longer would man be subjected to making blood sacrifices or having to depend on a priest to go before God on their behalf...Through the ministry and death of Christ Jesus we can go directly before the throne of God and make petition of HIM! Glory to God in the highest...through the name of Jesus we can ask anything of the Father and it shall be done...Another shift happened on the day of Pentecost...Abba Father has given us power and authority through the infilling presence of HIS Holy Spirit! You can read about it here: Acts prayer is that you would take this word and make further study of it on your own....allow God to open the eyes of your understanding to HIS Word and reveal to you what He has to say about the shift HE wants to bring to your life and ministry....Below is the prophetic word that God gave for the leaders for this season....

"For I have given my clarion call to the house. For My people who are called by My name. Come up to My Holy mountain. Come, come, come now is the time.. I am shifting the power of My Spirit to those whom I have called out. Prepare for the shift. Swiftly a shift in the anointing, a shift of wealth, a shift of My power. Those who have been in a push for My Kingdom will shift. With My power and authority the push is over. The shift is here. Now, now, now. The wait is over. I have caused this shift to come about and no man has authority over what I release and establish for My people. I and I alone have caused the shift to take place. I have sealed it with My Spirit. This is an end time shift to bring forth a harvest of souls. Protect that which I have released from those who would pervert and misuse what I have poured out upon this night. For I am a God of all things. I am the Alpha and Omega The beginning and the ending" Amen
