I had an encounter with the Lord on Father’s Day (June 18, 2017) in which God said that He is now releasing greater revelation and details about your eternal purpose and destiny.
This is going to start in the month of July and He is going to show you hidden things that have been holding you back in the past. On Father’s Day, God said that He is going to reveal Himself to you as a father does to a son or daughter.
I will reveal the eternal purpose of God. For he has decreed over Me, “You are my favored Son. And as your Father I have crowned You as My King Eternal. Today I have given you glory! You only need to ask Me to give You the nations and they shall become Your legacy. Your domain will stretch to the ends of the earth.” Psalm 2:7–8 TPT
I also like the way verse 7 is written in the NIV. It says, “Today I became your Father.”
Chains and Contracts
In the encounter, I had a vision that an angel came with silver keys and unlocked chains that were on people. As the angel unlocked the chains, I saw another angel holding a stack of contracts and agreements that had been made with these restraints.
These had been placed on people by those who did not understand them or had become jealous. The chains and contracts had been holding these people back from moving forward in many areas of their lives.
…having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. Colossians 2:14-15 NIV
God said, “I am removing these chains and I am now removing the contracts and agreements that were made with each one. I am disarming the attacks against you.” I saw the angel with the contracts take them to a blazing altar off in the distance. The contracts and agreements that have held you back in the past were burned up in the fire of the Lord.
As this was going on, new freedom was being released in the spirit. People’s eyes were suddenly opening to things that happened long ago—things they came into agreement with or that needed to be broken off. As the new freedom came, they began to rejoice and worship God.
New Gates Open in the Spirit
Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: “The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things! The Lord’s right hand is lifted high; the Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!” I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done.Psalm 118:15-17 NIV
Their shouts of joy and victory caused discouragement to fall off. Some had become so distressed they were at the point of giving up and wanting God to take them to Heaven. Others were suffering with suicidal thoughts. But these were all being broken!
I watched as many people began to shout and worship God. Then God stood up and raised His hands and said with a loud voice, “Open the gates of righteousness!”
Open for me the gates of the righteous; I will enter and give thanks to the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord through which the righteous may enter. Psalms 118:19-20 NIV
God said, “I will fulfill all the promises I made to you. The things I have spoken to you are now coming. I am now freeing you from the chains that have held you back. I am aligning you for this new season of your life. Stay close to Me and watch Me move in the midst of the storms.”
God said, “This is the gate for you and others, who are now entering into the season for which you were created. This is the gate of righteousness for those who prepare themselves. This is the pathway to My presence that will take you deeper into My intimacy and love. This is the way of My heart.”
Those Rejected Now Accepted
The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. Psalm 118:22-23 NIV
I saw many people who were being freed from the chains and restraints of the past now flowing through this new gate of righteousness. They were given new freedom and purpose and their strength was returning. Many of them had been rejected because they did not fit. But now God is gathering the misfits and those rejected and building them into something new.
I have experienced these things in my own life. As I have shared this with others, I am receiving lots of feedback about chains of the past being broken and new revelation coming. This is an exciting time as God is preparing us for the coming great revival.
