(The Lord originally gave me this word on April 12, which I feel compelled to share with you now, as I believe it is a timely word for this season we have entered into.)
From Passover to Pentecost (April – May 2020)
As we have entered the season from Passover to Pentecost, this a time to stay vigilant and alert. As we continue in our moment of reset, we have already moved into the 7-week, 50-day period of time where we will see the contending over the aligning of nations. All that is about transpire is for the “aligning of nations” and the “awakening and positioning of the Church” for the new era we have entered.
As this 50-day process, orchestrated by the Lord, unfolds I am hearing the Lord say, “It is a time of understanding for My Church to awaken, to embrace, and step into the position of influence.” He showed me that we will continue to see the unfolding of great differences in the nation and the nations. Some things will begin to escalate. There will be an exposure of corrupt structures, and we will witness economic developments that will begin to unfold in the nations, starting now through the month of May and through Pentecost.
Just like when the children of Israel were directed by the Lord to turn back toward the Red Sea to cross over, we, too, are in that season. It is just like in the days of the crossing over of the children of Israel, where there was a hardening of Pharaoh’s heart to pursue them, overtake them and to enslave them once more. But God brought them to the Red Sea, causing a miraculous parting of the waters and made a way for His people to cross over to dry land and into the new era. He brought them to this place to bring an exacting blow to the structure that wanted to hold Israel bound and captive and recapture the plundered resources given to Israel.
It is interesting that Egypt gave homage to a dragon spirit, a sea monster, in the Nile River and the Red Sea. They revered it as the god of chaos. We, too, are seeing this “god of chaos” manifest in this season. It is important to note that the Lord brought them to the Red Sea to deal an exacting blow to the schemes of their enemy and these entities—and to bring glory to Him and the glory of the new day for the children of Israel.
Recoil, Red Dragon, Exposure, Economies
Just as Pharaoh and his army pursued the children of Israel, the Lord has been showing me that there will be a recoiling among nations and economies. “Recoil” is defined as “to shrink back” and one of its synonyms is “boomerang.” I believe there will be a boomerang effect on those who meant to bring harm. Pharaoh, after he let the children of Israel go, soon questioned the decision and the Lord hardened his heart again. We know he and his army set out to pursue and recapture Israel. And this act “recoiled” or “boomeranged” on Pharaoh and his army.
We will begin to see this same type of movement over the next weeks. (Remember, the time I began to see and receive this word was April 12.) What we are seeing and will see unfold is a shaking, exposing and rearranging of economies of the nations for the new time we are entering into in the world. (Photo via Pixabay)
I believe the hand of the Communist Party of China (also known as the “red dragon”) that is attempting to reach for the economies of the world will be exposed, and a thwarting and overturning process of these demonic agendas will begin. Much exposure will come concerning what originated in Wuhan. The Lord showed me that President Trump is key, a Cyrus, in this time to set the nations and the aligning of nations into order. We must continue to pray for protection and godly wisdom and counsel for him.
Please hear my heart. We LOVE China, we LOVE the people of China dearly—and all of our Asian brothers and sisters. China is a nation we are called to. We pray for the persecuted Church in China and for freedom to come to this nation. What the Lord is highlighting here is the demonic principality in operation and manifesting through the Chinese Communist agenda.
The Lord continues to speak concerning what transpired when the children of Israel felt they were cornered at the Red Sea. The angel of the Lord moved from the front position to the rear position to become the rear guard between Pharaoh’s army and the children of Israel. And the cloud of His presence stood between the two nations. Darkness shone on Pharaoh’s side and light emanated on the side of the children of Israel to give them sight to begin their journey on dry land, across the Red Sea.
God is releasing His angels now to stand against what the enemy intends for harm among the nations. There will be a cloud, a barrier of His presence, that will stand between the enemy’s agenda and the Lord’s plans. We must guard against coming into a place of questioning and fear in what begins to unfold over the days leading to the end of May, Pentecost. We must be diligent to not enter into or go back to Egypt again. The Lord is leading us into a season to cross over. All that is transpiring is for His glory and the glory of the new day.
Awakening and Aligning for New Glory and New Era
It is a time of repentance, decision and surrender. It is a time to reset in order for deep awakening to occur. In this place, a righteous cry, sound, and movement will rise up and will cause such a clash in the Spirit that corruption and unjust demonic agendas will not be able to weather the storm of justice in the awakened sound of intercession from across the nations. Awakening first carries the sound of shaking and a rumble when it is in the stance of confrontation.
We are crossing over into an unprecedented era. We are at the tipping point and a defining moment. We must be vigilant as watchmen on the wall and continue to pray with strategy that will see the plans of darkness and this demonic dragon entity fully exposed and defeated, as well as a breaking through and breaking open of the awakening and harvest at Pentecost.
We must tip into the new glory and not fall back into the old. We must cross into the Promised Land. We must step into the reset and restoration of the glory that is hovering over the land and the nation. As we tip the scale of justice, we will witness the global reset and aligning of the nations for the new glory of the new era.
• Declare that the Church will awaken, embrace and step into her position of influence.
“Rise up in splendor and be radiant, for your light has dawned, and Yahweh’s glory now streams from you! Look carefully! Darkness blankets the earth, and thick gloom covers the nations, but Yahweh arises upon you and the brightness of His glory appears over you! Nations will be attracted to your radiant light and kings to the sunrise-glory of your new day. Lift up your eyes higher! Look all around you and believe, for your sons are returning from far away and your daughters are being tenderly carried home. Watch as they all gather together, eager to come back to you!” (Isaiah 60:1-4 TPT) (Photo via Pixabay)

“The Lord thundered, the great God above every god spoke with His thunder-voice from the skies. What fearsome hailstones and flashes of fire were before Him! He released His lightning-arrows, and routed my foes. See how they ran and scattered in fear! Then with His mighty roar He laid bare the foundations of the earth, uncovering the secret source of the sea. The hidden depths of land and sea were exposed by the hurricane-blast of His hot breath. He then reached down from Heaven, all the way from the sky to the sea. He reached down into my darkness to rescue me! He took me out of my calamity and chaos and drew me to Himself, taking me from the depths of my despair!” (Psalm 18:13-16 TPT)

“The earth was rocked at the sound of His voice from the mountain, but now He has promised, ‘Once and for all I will not only shake the systems of the world, but also the unseen powers in the heavenly realm!’ Now this phrase ‘once and for all’ clearly indicates the final removal of things that are shaking, that is, the old order, so only what is unshakable will remain. Since we are receiving our rights to an unshakable Kingdom we should be extremely thankful and offer God the purest worship that delights His heart as we lay down our lives in absolute surrender, filled with awe. For our God is a holy, devouring fire!” (Hebrews 12:26-29 TPT)

You’ll even walk unharmed among the fiercest powers of darkness, trampling every one of them beneath your feet!” (Psalm 91:11-13 TPT)
• Declare that there is an awakened sound of intercession rising from across the nations.

• Pray for the watchmen to be vigilant on the wall and continue to pray with the strategy to see the plan of the red dragon defeated and a breaking through and breaking open of the awakening and harvest at Pentecost.
“I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent.” (Isaiah 62:6 NKJV)
• Pray for a deep surrender and awakening to be ignited in the Church, that every area which needs to be reset would be a cry of yes—a turning from the old ways into the new—that we may walk yielded to Him. It isn’t silver vessels that He is looking for, nor is it golden vessels that He needs, He just needs yielded vessels.
“So you must remain in life-union with Me, for I remain in life-union with you…” (John 15:4 TPT)
• Pray for an awakening; an unhindered move of the Holy Spirit.
“On the day Pentecost was being fulfilled, all the disciples were gathered in one place. Suddenly they heard the sound of a violent blast of wind rushing into the house from out of the heavenly realm. The roar of the wind was so overpowering it was all anyone could bear! Then all at once a pillar of fire appeared before their eyes. It separated into tongues of fire that engulfed each one of them.” (Acts 2:1-3 TPT) (Photo via Picsmine)

“The priests then left the Holy Place. All the priests there were consecrated, regardless of rank or assignment; and all the Levites who were musicians were there—Asaph, Heman, Jeduthun, and their families, dressed in their worship robes; the choir and orchestra assembled on the east side of the Altar and were joined by 120 priests blowing trumpets. The choir and trumpets made one voice of praise and thanks to God-orchestra and choir in perfect harmony singing and playing praise to God:
“Yes! God is good! His loyal love goes on forever!
“Then a billowing cloud filled the Temple of God. The priests couldn’t even carry out their duties because of the cloud—the glory of God!—that filled the Temple of God.” (2 Chronicles 5:11-14)
