Time for What? Five Times God Declares: 'It Is Time!'"
By Danny Steyne
One of my intercessors
recently told me that she's not going to use the word "shift" anymore. She's tired of it! I laughed because, like her, I simply want the shifts to end. I thought we were using a "four speed transmission," but evidently we are driving a tractor-trailer with
at least 12 and maybe 15 gears!
For fifteen years I've been hearing, "It's Time!" This seems lengthy until you realize that Jesus said He was returning "soon," and we begin considering that His timetable
is based on an eternal perspective and not a generation or length of a single life.
The beginning of this revelation was prior to my ministry's first MOW (Mountain of Worship) Signs & Wonders Conference,
October 25-28, 2005, in a visitation that set some things moving in my own life. I was in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho at Shiloh Inn when it began. At the conference God would make it very clear through supernatural means that "IT WAS TIME" for something to be released
to His Body, His Church.
My journey since that experience has often been about seeking Him to find out when He is declaring that "Time" will be. Like Daniel, I have sought it out and have often experienced
great resistance to receive revelation and meaning on what exactly "It's Time!" is; but in the faithfulness of God, He always brings the breakthrough when we search Him out. It is time!
It's Time for
The Scriptures are clear. Five times God declares specifically, "It Is Time!" The very declaration of "It Is Time" carries the connotation that a baby is about to be born. In our own experiences
within our own families we have often used that very term when labor reaches transition.
1. It's time for favor! Psalm 102:13, "You will arise and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favor
to her; the appointed time has come."
2. It's time for God to move! Psalm 119:125-126, "I am Your servant; give me discernment that I may understand Your statutes. It is time for You to act, Lord; Your
law is being broken."
3. It's time for the Lord's vengeance! Jeremiah 51:6, "Flee from Babylon! Run for your lives! Do not be destroyed because of her sins. It is time for the Lord's vengeance; He will
repay her what she deserves."
4. It's time for us to seek the Lord! Hosea 10:12, "Sow righteousness for yourselves, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to
seek the Lord, until He comes and showers His righteousness on you."
5. It's time for judgment to begin with God's household! 1 Peter 4:17, "For it is time for judgment to begin with God's household; and
if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the Gospel of God?"
Each of the "It Is Time" passages bring a specific intention of the Lord. We are to simply cooperate with Him
and what He is doing. I see each of these things happening simultaneously and we are NOW IN this time. I am not saying we are "headed there," I am saying "we are there!"
Multifaceted Release Across the
We will now begin seeing a multifaceted release of God across the Church, around the World. Some of the places deserted by the Church are about to experience the favor of the Lord.
I see places in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, where the greatest persecution is about to be thwarted by the Lord as He brings vengeance on the enemies of the Cross, and the Church in those areas will experience favor unlike anything they have
I see places in Europe where God is about to move, move, move. Governments will topple before the Cross. I see the lower Americas experiencing great moves of God and again governments being
toppled by the righteous. In North America and in Oceania the sweeping hand of the Lord will purify His Bride and the pseudo-prophetic movement will give way, be exposed, and reveal the heart of God in declarations unrelated to soulish winds of doctrine.
A Time of Birthing
It is here where the loudest voices, who have been present for a long time, will be cleared...just as God is clearing His throat to speak...for
He will speak, and everything is about to burst over the earth. Humility will come to the most proud as He speaks and moves. He is birthing His Church – us.
We have been in a tight place. A place
that speaks of a membrane that has closed in on us, not because we are failing, but because He is birthing us in this hour. The Sons of God are in the birthing canal...the baby is crowning and soon will break free from the constraints of "process" into prophetic
fulfillment. We are there.
