You Are at the Gate of Something Great!

By Veronika West



You Are at the Gate of Something Great — It’s Time to Advance




There is a fierce battle that is raging over your testimony and destiny in this hour!


But I hear the Father say, “MIGHTY Warriors FEAR NOT, take courage and stand your ground.  Do not retreat.  It’s time to raise the sword and shield and dig your heels in deeper!”


Listen, the greater the impact of God’s power on the earth, the greater the onslaught of darkness and wickedness will be.


I see the fiery darts of fear, frustration, discouragement, despair and death flying by day and by night.


Satan is waging war over the testimony and destiny of many believers in this hour.


The enemy’s goal and agenda in this season is to distort, derail and destroy the faith, hope and expectation of God’s people.


Satan’s strategy is to divert our attention and indeed our affections away from the Father.  He comes to distinguish our passion and our pursuits for the Kingdom of God.


Satan is coming to weaken the witness of the son’s of God and cause us to retreat into places of obscurity and isolation.


I hear the Spirit say, “Warriors stand still, and do not be moved, for I have called and anointed you to guard.


Stand and defend the ground that you are standing on.


Watch, for even now, My Spirit of power, strength and might comes to enable, empower and sustain you in the midst of this battle.


Beloved, trust in My Power to prevail and in My Wisdom to win.  Now is the time for you to take the land that I have given you.


Do not give in, do not give up, do not look back, and do not be afraid, son/ daughter!


You must stand and be still, greater is He that is with you than He that comes against you in this hour.


Now is the time to raise the sword and shield and dig your heels in deeper.


Warriors, fear not, for My salvation and justice comes quickly,” says God.


I Declare!  Yes, it is time for me to dig deeper and defend the ground of destiny.


While praying for many of you this morning, The Holy Spirit quickened this story to me;


“And after him was Shammah the son of Agee the Hararite.  And the Philistines were gathered together into a troop where there was a piece of ground full of lentils: and the people fled from the Philistines.

But he stood still in the midst of the ground, and defended it, and slew the Philistines: and the LORD wrought a great victory,”   2 Samuel 23:11-12.


Here is what I hear Father saying to us today, in this Word, we see that Shammah wouldn’t move!


He stood his ground in the midst of the lentil field and would not give in, even though he was greatly outmatched and outnumbered.


It looked like an impossible situation, but this one man dug his heels in deeper and stood still against a troop of mighty soldiers.


Shammah guarded that piece of ground, he did not stand alone but he stood empowered by the Spirit of God, and he defended his ground.


Now what if he had given into the spirit of fear and fled the field?  Well the enemy would have come in and taken hold of his testimony and his kingdom destiny.


Shammah was a man who knew the power of God.  He did not shrink back, he did not run and hide, he did not give up, he did not look back but he stood his ground and looked straight into the face of great opposition and the LORD wrought a great victory. Hallelujah!


I Decree:  In this season, I AM AT THE GATE OF SOMETHING GREATI will not shrink back, but I will stand my ground.  I will lift my sword and shield and dig my heels in deeper to defend my field.  I am prepared and positioned for a great victory!




Blessings to you all.

In the book of Genesis chapter 28, Isaac told Jacob to go to Padan Aram to get a wife. As Jacob went on his journey as his father requested, he stopped to sleep with his head on a stone. He had a dream, which was not just an ordinary dream, but it was a prophetic dream/encounter in which God spoke to him. In this dream the Lord showed Jacob a ladder going up into heaven with angels ascending and descending upon it, and the Lord standing above it.


He then gave Jacob a promise which was similar to the promise that He gave to Abraham. As I was reading this, the Holy Spirit quickened verse fifteen to me where the Lord said to him:  "I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you."


The Lord has given many of you a dream but you don't understand where He is sending you or what you are supposed to do. Jesus is saying the same thing to you as He spoke to Jacob. He will not leave you until He has completed what He has promised to you. God will complete the assignment and the work that He has begun in you. There are ministries to be birth, as well as spiritual encounters and promises that have not yet come to pass in your life. There are dreams that have not yet been fulfilled, and visions that have not yet been released. Some of you will also have angelic encounters and many will have holy visitations.


When Jacob awoke from his sleep he said,  "Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it." And he was afraid and said, "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is The Gate of Heaven!" 


Gates are used metaphorically throughout the Word of God. They speak of entrances, access points, passages, or portals to transition from one place to another. They are also used figuratively as an invitation or opportunity. They are symbolic of separations from the natural realm and the supernatural realm.


We are in a season of hearing the voice of God in a profound way. Jesus is speaking to us from His word, in dreams, as well as in everyday life. The Holy Spirit will also reveal the gates of heaven to you in your dreams. He is inviting you to come up to a higher place where you will receive visions and heavenly encounters, as He is giving you promotions to new levels of authority. He is releasing keen discernment so that you will be wise as a serpent, yet gentle as a dove and receive all that Jesus has for you in this time and season. Do not fear the supernatural, because Jesus said that His sheep will know His voice, and the voice of a stranger they will not follow.



Genesis 28:10-17


Now Jacob went out from Beersheba and went toward Haran. So he came to a certain place and stayed there all night, because the sun had set. And he took one of the stones of that place and put it at his head, and he lay down in that place to sleep. Then he dreamed, and behold, a ladder was set up on the earth, and its top reached to heaven; and there the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. And behold, the Lord stood above it and said: "I am the Lord God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie I will give to you and your descendants. Also your descendants shall be as the dust of the earth; you shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south; and in you and in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed. Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you."


Genesis 28:16

Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, "Surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it." And he was afraid and said, "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!"

"Prophets: Hold on! A Major Surge is Coming!"

By Lana Vawser



Recently, the Lord showed me that there is a significant battle against many prophets right now. They are feeling like they have had the wind knocked out of their sails. I saw many in a place of deep heaviness; feeling oppression, confusion, lack of clarity, disorientation and even torment.


As I leaned into the Lord I heard His voice resound so loudly: "The battle is over MY voice and the mantle of evangelism that is being activated over the prophets! IT'S TIME FOR A MAJOR SURGE OF PROPHETIC EVANGELISM."


Birthing the Double Mantles


I then began to see flashes before my eyes of the positioning hand of God in the lives of the prophets in this new era. He was positioning them in the world in places they never imagined. I could hear the Lord speaking:


"I have and will continue to position you in the Church for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry. I am now also releasing you in greater ways into the world, with great favor to release My words and to spread the Good News of My Gospel to bring in the harvest. It is time for My voice to resound in the world, louder than before, and I am activating a mantle of evangelism over many prophets.


"The enemy is trying to keep many of My prophets caged in this place of inactivity because of fear, and tremendous opposition. I have heard the cries of many of My prophets crying out to Me because of the battle and deep torment they have been facing, but this is because MY VOICE that is about to go forth louder than before.



The enemy is ferociously angry and he is attempting to muzzle the prophets, but he will not prevail. For I am decreeing over My prophets, 'IT'S TIME TO MOVE INTO NEW MANTLES. It's time for a double mantle to be birthed upon you—the prophet and the evangelist converging! Prophets, you are now birthing! The enemy is coming on assignment to abort, but I am decreeing now is your time to birth!


"You are about to birth in great joy! You are moving into another mantle, My prophets, and there's a battle on the mantle, but greater momentum shall you find in this mantle than you have ever known. The enemy is terrified of the mantle you are moving into, My prophets. Get fierce! Be ferocious and don't stop! Move! Move! Move! It's time to move into the new mantle. The witchcraft coming against this new mantle is a sign of the momentum contained within the mantle. The promotion—this moving into, this new mantle—is the greatest promotion and shift in many of your lives thus far. It's the greatest increase of anointing that you have known."


Words That Unlock Hearts


In this vision I began to see prophets being positioned in the world and speaking words from the heart of the Father—words that unlocked the hearts of those who do not yet know Jesus, and salvation SUDDENLY came forth.


The Lord said, "There is a completely new display of prophetic evangelism that is about to burst forth as the increase of clarity, revelation and insight is released to the prophets to release My nature and the secrets of My heart to mankind across the earth."


The Lord is training and increasing the prophets right now in clarity and insight to go forth in greater empowerment of the Spirit, to partner with Him in a new level of prophetic evangelism.


"It's a Surge!"


I then heard the Lord say, "IT'S A SURGE!" He continued to speak, saying: "There's a MAJOR SURGE of prophetic evangelism that is about to take place, and the enemy is attempting to silence the prophets so they will not move into these double mantles, but I am fighting on their behalf. I am training them in the fire and they will go forth with My words like fire in their mouths, with the fire of My presence upon them. They will begin to see harvest all around. It's time for the prophet and the evangelist to CONVERGE like never before."


Surge is defined as: "A sudden powerful forward or upward movement, especially by a crowd or by a natural force such as the tide." Here are some synonyms for surge: "gush, rush, outpouring, stream, flow, sweep, swell, swelling, heaving, billowing, rolling, roll, bulging, eddying, swirling, tide, burst, pour, cascade, spill, overflow."


It's Time to Go Behind the Veil


"My prophets, it is time to go behind the veil like never before. It is time to come deeper into the place of Jeremiah 33:3. For the level of insight, revelation, and clarity of My secrets and My Word that I am releasing to you in this new era is unlike anything you have seen and heard before. It is a new level of insight and a new level of revelation.


"As you come behind the veil into the secret place, I will entrust you to revelation knowledge and wisdom that you will take into the world and the places I send you. You will release these secrets and they will bring forth a GREAT UNLOCKING for the harvest. Hearts will be unlocked and come into salvation. Cultures, cities and nations will be affected by the answers and prophetic insight that I will release to you and through you for the world, and you will see the world left in awe of My wisdom that will also bring in the harvest. Many in the world will come to the knowledge of My reality and who I am—My goodness—and come to know Me, recognizing the wisdom from on high! It's time to come behind the veil like never before.


A Coming Tidal Wave of Activation


"There is also an increase of the training and equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry that is about to ESCALATE and ACCELERATE for the harvest! There is going to be a greater acceleration of the training and equipping of the saints, a greater maturing to send out, prepare, activate and equip. For there is a tidal wave of activation crashing into the Body of Christ right now to activate My people in PROPHECY and EVANGELISM! It's time for the prophet and the evangelist to expand!"


His Voice is Going Forth Louder Than Before


The Lord said, "My prophets, the enemy is attempting to drag many of you into a battle that feels like Hell because you and I are about to snatch souls and save them from the reality of Hell. This is the sound of the harvest! This is why the enemy is screaming at you to stop right now. My prophets, because My voice is about to go forth through you, My Gospel and the secrets of My heart, like never before, will bring MANY into the Kingdom and the saving knowledge of who I am and My goodness. You MUST go forth! It's your time to move into the new activated mantle and move into the harvest field. It's time! You have arrived! It is time.


"I am leading many of you where you have never been before. It's uncomfortable, but it will be glorious as you see Me move in power through you like NEVER before. 'For SUCH a time as this' is resounding loudly over you. Now is the time to trust in Me and trust in My power! The harvest is ripe, and you are being sent forth in great acceleration and empowerment to bring in the harvest!"
