Are you in pursuit of God and His will, and yet have felt as though your life, work or ministry has been out of kilter in some way?

If you sense you have been in a time of transition, be assured the Holy Spirit is releasing new strategies to you.

It is time to lean forward, for you are on the verge of new discoveries.

‘The Building Materials Have Changed!’

At the start of this year, I was walking along the hills when I noticed a lookout and sign just ahead. At that moment, I felt the Holy Spirit urge me, ‘Pay attention!’

The sign at the lookout told the story of limestone kilns that operated in the 1800’s, but are no longer visible. [1]

An industry once thrived there. But now, only a historic marker and archaeological site sign remain.

As I stood there, I heard the Holy Spirit say, ‘The building materials have changed.’

Are You a Builder, or an Architect?

A master builder builds according to plan that he or she has been given—blueprints that are already in existence.

An architect, however, has insight into new materials and trends.

An architect has a gift of vision to create blueprints and plans that have never been seen before on earth.

Receive an ‘architect anointing’ that will launch you into your destiny!

Some who are called to be specialist architects in the kingdom, but have been serving faithfully as builders, are about to be revealed.

They perceive by the Spirit, not only that the building materials have changed, but what those materials are and how they fit together.

The Beginning of a Significant Shift

‘See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?’ (Isaiah 43:19a, NIV)

The Lord is saying, ‘Pay attention! A new era is here. You have now crossed over.’

For many of us at this time, the anointing of the Spirit that has been on ways and methods that are familiar—even comfortable—has now lifted.

A ‘new era’ marks the beginning of a significant shift. From this point on, there is a permanent change.

This is true of technology, it is also true of the culture and the climate, and it is also true in the Kingdom of God.

Be Open to New Technology and New Ways

For you, the new building materials, or ‘new technology’ is that which is anointed of the Holy Spirit for you for this season.

This may mean that God has been preparing you to let go of processes, methods and means that are becoming outdated.

Hold lightly to old ways, but tightly to legacy that lasts.

Trust the Spirit to give you insight to know the difference.

If you are gifted primarily as a builder in God’s Kingdom, receive the humility and wisdom to recognize and listen to the strategies of God’s anointed architects.

They may be younger—or older—than you.

Josephs and Daniels are Rising

God is anointing individuals and groups who will receive wisdom, and blueprints and strategies from the Holy Spirit.

Sons of Issachar are rising up who will know the times and how to respond to what God is doing.

Some will have special insight into how technologies can be used to further the Gospel and extend the Kingdom.

Josephs and Daniels are rising up who will give timely insight and prophetic strategies to governments and administrations.

Build with Eternity in View

These words of Paul are meaningful right now:
‘If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light.’ ( Corinthians 3:12-14, NIV)

The gates of the heavenly city, the new Jerusalem, are formed of pearls and precious stones, and the city made of gold. Even the streets are paved with gold (Rev 21).

So, when Paul is speaking of using gold, silver and costly stones as building materials, he is speaking of the construction materials of Heaven.

Now more than ever, we need to build with eternity in view.

By way of contrast, the ‘wood, hay or straw’ Paul refers to, are worldly attitudes, such as jealousy and quarrelling (1 Cor 3:1-9). Competitive attitudes will not produce lasting fruit.

This is the time for Kingdom collaboration.

You will build, not only with gifts and abilities, but with integrity of heart, intimacy with the Holy Spirit, and love for people.

The Unchanging Word of God

‘Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven.’ (Ps 119:89 NKJV)

There is Heavenly wisdom available through God’s Word, to know what does not change—and what is eternal!

Ways and means may change, technology will be transformed, but our Gospel remains the same.

Hear Him say,’Stay alert to My Spirit and true to My Word!’

Paul exhorts each of us to build with care on the unchanging foundation of Christ (1 Cor 3:11).

Expansion is on the Father’s Heart

A new era means new solutions are on the way!

While you are in the discomfort of transition, be encouraged that blueprints, solutions and mysteries are waiting to be uncovered. The Holy Spirit beckons you onwards.

The building materials have changed, and room is being made.  Expansion is on the Father’s heart.

Multitudes are about to enter the Kingdom of God.

  1. Helen…this is a word I receive as I am currently transitioning (as it relates) to work). After 26 years of employment at a job and now unemployed, at times I find myself not sure of what directions to take and recover. As I read this prophetic word this morning, I am encouraged the Most High is the best architect and HE is making me over with HIS new building material…Jer 29:11-14, because ALL things work together for the the good to them that e God…Rom 8:28.

    Thank You, blessed woman of God…again…for this fresh anointed and prophetic word!!

  4. Legacy, Stones, Foundation, Future, and Generations To Come all resounded with me, as my husband had a dream last night that touched on these same themes the Holy Spirit revealed to you, and then the Lord directed me to your website today! Confirmation! Also in his dream, my husband saw the enemy who came in the form of a robber dressed in a helmet and on a horse, but in the dream my husband threw rocks from the roof at the thief aka satan, like David did against Goliath, and the enemy was destroyed. Children of the Most High be prepared for spiritual battle, the generations of Jacob are at hand, be prepared, build in Christ, because victory is the Lord’s! An on time word! Thank-you my sister for sharing!
