Prophetic Word: ‘My Kingdom is open for business!’

‘No More Postponement!’

Have you been waiting on a change of season, in relation to the call of God? Perhaps you have anticipated a future time in which the power of the Holy Spirit will operate through you, to bring healing, signs and miracles.

I believe the Lord is saying, ‘It’s time to revisit that call, and that word. There are many who are waiting for a change of season that has already taken place!’

It’s time to stop waiting and start moving. It’s time to act on the revelation you have been given.’

Vision of an Upside-Down Chair

A few months ago, I was attending a daytime pastors’ session at Planetshakers Conference here in Melbourne, Australia.

As we began to worship, I closed my eyes and in the Spirit, suddenly saw a single chair! It was upside down, glowing, and suspended in the air, within arm’s reach.

I knew the chair represented spiritual authority.

The fluorescent glow that surrounded it indicated that the chair was supernatural. It was alight with the power of God. As I was looking at this unusual chair I asked, ‘Father what do you want me to do? Shall I turn it over and sit on it?’

I felt Him say emphatically, ‘No, wait, I want to show you more.’

I continued to worship, with the question still in my mind: ‘Why is this chair—a chair that is clearly meant to be sat in, not only empty, but also upside down?’

Suddenly, I saw a vision of a long banquet table, in a room that looked like a restaurant or wedding reception area.

Chairs were placed, upside down, on top of the table. And I realized, ‘This is how staff place chairs in a cafe or restaurant when they are finished serving for the day! The restaurant is closed and they have removed the chairs in order to clean the floors!’

‘My Kingdom is Open all Hours!’

That’s when I sensed the Father saying:

‘My people are saying that it is ‘out of hours’ for my greater works.

There are gifts, empowerment and miracles that you’ve had on your heart, that have not yet come to pass; gifts of healing you have been waiting for.

There are signs and wonders that operated for a time and you knew they were a sign of things to come. And so you drifted into a someday, sometime, mind-set. Perhaps others told you that the hour to activate your spiritual authority had not yet come.

But I want you to know that My Kingdom is open for business. It is open all hours. It is open right now. And many of you have been waiting for a change of season. But the change of season you are waiting on, has already taken place!

It is time to act on the revelation you have been given.

‘Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the Kingdom’ (Luke 12:32, NIV)

An Urgent Message from the Heart of the Father

As I meditated further on the vision, I knew He was showing me a banquet hall, and banqueting table for a reason.

Jesus spoke a parable about the wedding banquet in Luke 14, concerning God’s offer of salvation. One of the themes of the parable is the urgency of the Gospel invitation:

  • ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’ (Luke 14:21b, NIV)
  • ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full.’ (Luke 14:23, NIV)

Why was the Holy Spirit showing me a banquet table? The banquet table represented urgency of the hour. Souls are at stake. It is time for the Kingdom to be manifested with power.

A Guided Wrong Turn

That evening, my husband Malcolm and I were returning to our accommodation after Planetshakers Conference. It was pouring with rain, we didn’t have an umbrella, and we took a wrong turn.

Our misdirection happened to take us past a café, that was closed for the night. As we walked past, I noticed something in the window. Chairs, placed upside down on a table.


Lord, I ask that you reveal to me any area in which I’ve been waiting, but it is now your due season to act on Your Word. I say, ‘no more postponement’! Father, I repent of believing that the day of Your power has not yet come. I recognize where I’ve drifted into a perspective of waiting.
I break off all disappointments, I lay aside all unfulfilled longings and I step out of the waiting room at Your Word.
Your Kingdom is open now! Your Name is powerful now! Your healing and power is being released now!

I choose to step into the authority you have given to me. I choose to say, ‘Yes!’ to You. May Your Kingdom come and Your will be done in my life. May many be drawn to salvation and may the River of Your Presence flow and touch the lives of many others around me, in Jesus’ Name, amen.

  1. Helen thankyou. I have just started worship leading. Through personal worship time with the Lord he gave me a strong desire to lead worship. It is amazing because I don’t like being in the front, am an introvert etc. I have led twice but feel so compelled like I want to do this forever, this is what I was made for, even though I have so much to learn. It is like an anointing has come apon me and increased faith with it for Gods work. I think God is saying to me in this post ‘ Just keep believing in his power on me and through me and he will lead the works’. I am in a conservative church so there is no mentorship in the prophetic or miraculous gifts. I probably am a charismatic in a conservative environment. I am mindful to do all things in love for the congregation and submit to the pastor in the sense of taking only steps and saying things I really feel the holy spirit says yes they can handle it. A couple of slip ups using phrases etc too charismatic for them and I felt warned about being a ‘clanging gong’. Any advice for this situation Helen? I am grateful for mentoring and uplift through your blog and twitter feed. Blessings to you in Jesus name.

    1. Hi Naomi, it’s great to hear from you and how wonderful about the worship leading!
      I can identify with you being an introvert myself and being called to get up on a platform. 🙂 It has to be God!!
      It sounds as though you are being sensitive in your situation, it really is about leaning into the Spirit’s wisdom and love.
      This article I’ve written a while back did come to mind for you:

  2. Helen your blog is powerful. You had me laughing and crying all at once. Very life changing message here!!!

  3. The Fire of God is burning in My Belly as I Prayed Your Prayer! Thank You My Lord and King! Your Will Be Done. In Name of Yeshua! Amen

    Thank You for Your obedience to Yeshua that I May experience a closer walk with Him. Forever Touched. God Bless You

  4. Helen,
    Thank you for sharing. I have been so hungry for this. I have ached for this, looked for this and longed to see this in church so people would wake up and once again believe Jesus is actually alive and waiting for us to move in oneness with him so that all would know He is Lord, He is a good Father and He loves no matter what. I confess when I was expecting and nothing would happen I got so discouraged because I was so hungry for people to wake up and be excited that Jesus is with us. I got so tired and discouraged of church being a sermon, a few songs and donuts. This word makes me excited! I do believe this is a new season! I believe the time is now!

    1. Yes the time is now! when the Spirit moves through us, others around us get hungry for what we carry. May the discouragement lift and the fresh wind of the Spirit blow through your life Dana

  5. Hi Helen,
    Thank you for this information today. I have been waiting years to fulfill my calling and purpose nearly 20 yrs have passed, every thing in my life has died, even my giftings I feel are dead. I have been waiting and waiting and waiting. I’ve been in one toxic church after another, places that called these gifts demonic, ppl who are hungry only for money not God. I live in NYC, trying desperately to get out of here. I’m unemployed, and just tired. Frustrated inside, today I feel so discouraged. Begging and weeping to God, when is my life going to change? When are his promises to come? When is His ministry going to come forward? When, when, when? I’ve spent my life waiting for something good to come? I just feel lost, pointless , purposeless. I long to travel, my heart has always longed for that. I’ve been invited to visit a ministry overseas, but I’ve no money to go and it’s a place I’ve wanted to go since I was a child. My life is empty. I’m isolated, my car repo’d why has God allowed so much ruin? I’m tired of crying.. all I’ve wanted to do is serve him.. but how everything is.. I’m beginning to doubt I had a call.

    1. Hi DD, sorry to hear about the struggles, I’m praying for you right now. May His sweet anointing and comfort flow through you and may you have some clear steps forward.

  6. I had a dream recently where I was on my way out of town, once I got part way I ran into a complete traffic jam, totally completely for miles and miles all you could see was wall to wall cars. I wished I had taken a back road or been able to go another way but I couldn’t move even an inch…it would be hours before I could move. Then suddenly a Construction worker appeared with a hard hat and orange and yellow vest…he said “you go first” and as he did the road completely cleared, totally no cars! I believe this dream fits with what you are saying.
