Is Strategically Positioning You to Be a Deliverer”
By Madeline James
We are in a very prophetic, supernatural season. There are certain times or supernatural windows that open up at appointed times throughout the year. This happens when the Hebrew and Gregorian calendars overlap. We are in one
of those appointed seasons from now till Pentecost.
It’s so important to be aware and be able to discern the times and seasons we’re in, so we don’t
miss the kairos moment. I also find that during these significant times of spiritual activity, God is speaking to many through dreams and encounters. I encourage you to pay attention to your dreams and encounters in this season. God is speaking and revealing.
Clock, Timetable and Stylus
One night, at the end of February, I encountered
an angel of time. This angel had been catching my attention throughout the day. As I was getting ready to go to bed, I inquired further as to why I kept seeing the angel. When I did that, I saw an inner vision of an angel holding a clock in his left hand that
looked like a timetable. In his right hand he was holding a stylus pointing to the clock.
At the time of the encounter, I didn’t have the full revelation. I just
knew it was addressing the times and seasons. Fast forward to the morning of March 6, 2022 when I had a dream. In the dream, I was in a church that represented the Church at large. A friend came to me and began to tell me that she had been dreaming about the
kairos time. She said this to me twice in the dream. Later in the day, during my actual church service, the apostle began to prophesy about the kairos time of God. Wow, what confirmation!
For something to be established it must be confirmed by two or three witnesses (see 2 Corinthians 13:1). As I was meditating on this dream, the Holy Spirit began to show me this was the other piece to the encounter with the angel
What is kairos time? Kairos, biblically, is a Greek word that means the appointed time of God’s purpose. Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, “For everything
there is a season, a time for every activity under Heaven.” In the encounter with the angel of time, I didn’t realize it, but the angel was pointing to kairos time.
The People’s Victory
We are used to chronos or chronological time that goes in a linear fashion and is measurable. Kairos time comes
when our chronos time lines up and overlaps God’s appointed time – kairos time or divine moments of destiny. There’s a window of supernatural time that opens up to us to step through into those destiny moments.
One more thing to note in the dream is my friend’s name. The meaning of her name is the people’s victory. That’s such a prophetic proclamation, especially
since we’re entering into Purim. Victory is your portion. You shall overcome!
In March and April this year, we have two significant Hebraic dates and
Jewish festivals to observe: Purim and Passover. I want to highlight Purim first. Purim is the celebration of the exposure and defeat of Haman’s plot to kill the Jews. God called Esther and Mordecai to rise up and expose the wicked plan of the enemy.
This plays out in Esther 3.
King Xerxes promoted Haman. Haman got offended when Mordecai would not bow down to him, so he began to plot in his heart against the Jews.
Haman got in the king’s ear and began to launch a scheme to kill the Jews by winning the hearts and ears of those around him. In Esther 4, Mordecai pleads with Esther to go before the king to save the Jews. Esther calls a fast in order to pray and see
what to do.
The Third Day
Esther 5:1-6 (NLT) says
“On the third day of the fast, Esther put on her royal robes and entered the inner court of the palace, just across from the king’s hall.
The king was sitting on his royal throne, facing the entrance. When he saw Queen Esther standing there in the inner court, he welcomed her and held out the gold scepter to her. So Esther approached and touched the end of the scepter.
“Then the king asked her, ‘What do you want, Queen Esther? What is your request? I will give it to you, even if it is half the kingdom!’
Esther replied, ‘If it please the king, let the king and Haman come today to a banquet I have prepared for the king.’
“The king turned to his attendants
and said, ‘Tell Haman to come quickly to a banquet, as Esther has requested.’ So the king and Haman went to Esther’s banquet.
“And while they
were drinking wine, the king said to Esther, ‘Now tell me what you really want. What is your request? I will give it to you, even if it is half the kingdom!’”
The number three is significant to point out here. Remember how on the third day Jesus was resurrected? This third day was already prophesying to what God was going to do. God gave Esther favor with the king, and he granted
her request to have Haman at the banquet. But Haman began to allow pride to rise in him because of his promotion. Esther 5:11 (NLT) says, “and boasted to them about his great wealth and his many children. He bragged about the honors the king had given
him and how he had been promoted over all the other nobles and officials.”
Pride Before Destruction
Haman allowed pride to grow in his heart. Remember, pride comes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall (see Proverbs 16:18). We also see this in Isaiah 22 with Shebna and Eliakim. Pride caused Shebna to think
more highly of himself. It eventually caused his demise. God demoted him and promoted Eliakim, which is a prophetic picture of what God is doing in this hour.
are in an Isaiah 22 season where God is demoting the prideful and promoting the humble. The same thing takes place in the story of Esther. Haman allowed pride to blind him. The very trap he set for Mordecai and Esther, and the Jewish people,
became the thing that took him out. In Esther 6, the king honors Mordecai, right in front of Haman, for his hard work. Haman thought the king was going to honor him but was in for shock.
Esther 6:6-10 (NLT)
“…Haman thought to himself, ‘Whom would the king wish to honor more than me?’ So he replied, ‘If the king wishes to honor
someone, he should bring out one of the king’s own royal robes, as well as a horse that the king himself has ridden – one with a royal emblem on its head. Let the robes and the horse be handed over to one of the king’s most noble officials.
And let him see that the man whom the king wishes to honor is dressed in the king’s robes and led through the city square on the king’s horse. Have the official shout as they go, “This is what the king does for someone he wishes to honor!”’
“‘Excellent!’ the king said to Haman. ‘Quick! Take the robes and my horse and do just as you have said for Mordecai the Jew, who sits at the gate of the
palace. Leave out nothing you have suggested!’”
Imagine Haman’s response when the king had him put the king’s robes on Mordecai and honor him!
This was prophesying Haman’s demotion.
In Esther 7:3-6 (NLT), things come to a head, and the king once again asks Esther for her request:
“Queen Esther replied, ‘If I have found favor
with the king, and if it pleases the king to grant my request, I ask that my life and the lives of my people will be spared. For my people and I have been sold to those who would kill, slaughter, and annihilate us. If we had merely been sold as slaves, I could
remain quiet, for that would be too trivial a matter to warrant disturbing the king.’
“‘Who would do such a thing?’ King Xerxes demanded. ‘Who
would be so presumptuous as to touch you?’
“Esther replied, ‘This wicked Haman is our adversary and our enemy.’ Haman grew pale with fright
before the king and queen.” (Photo via Piqsels)
Once Haman’s plans were exposed, it was over for him. In the end, the very trap that he had set
up to kill Mordecai, killed him instead. Esther 7:9-10 says:
“Then Harbona, one of the king’s eunuchs, said, ‘Haman has set up a sharpened pole that
stands seventy-five feet tall in his own courtyard. He intended to use it to impale Mordecai, the man who saved the king from assassination.’
impale Haman on it!’ the king ordered. So they impaled Haman on the pole he had set up for Mordecai, and the king’s anger subsided.”
It’s very interesting; we’re
getting ready to enter Purim and a similar situation is going on in the nations right now concerning Ukraine and Russia. Lord, we declare and decree miraculous deliverance over Your people affected in Europe. Lord, we ask that You would expose the Hamans
that have been plotting in secret against Your people. Father, we declare and decree, may You raise up the Mordecais and the Esthers to rescue nations and foil the plots and secrets plans of the enemy.
Come Boldly to the Throne of Grace
The access the king gave to Esther was unheard of. It was a prophetic picture
of the access we have been given to go to the throne of God. Hebrews 4:16 (NLT) declares: “So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”
Because of what Jesus did on the Cross we have unlimited access.
What is it that you need in this hour? What is God calling you to do? Like Esther, I declare and decree
that access and favor have been granted to you. Like Esther and Mordecai, you have been positioned for such a time as this.
Esther 4:14 says, “…Yet who
knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Don’t let your kairos moment go by. God is positioning you, not only as one who will receive deliverance, but He is also strategically positioning you to be a deliverer
to the sphere of influence He has given you.
Deliverers are needed in this time. As you partner with God, He will use you to expose the ‘Hamans’
and the works of darkness coming against God’s people. Lord, we declare and decree, every trap that has been set up by the enemy will be exposed, and may they be caught in it. As you partner with the Spirit of God in this season, watch the divine
deliverance and miracles manifest on a global and individual scale. Nothing is too hard for God. He is looking for those who will say “yes” for such at time as this!
