“The hand of the LORD came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones.” (Ezekiel 37:1, NKJV)

Confetti, Your faith is going from glory to gloryThe Lord is releasing faith, for situations where the outlook has been bleak!

He is bringing healing, where there has been pain.
He is turning trials into gold.
He is transforming the environment.

You will hear Him say, “Speak My words, and look again!” and you will realize that here and there, change is taking place.
You will know that you are empowered.
His life is yours! His breath is yours.
His Word is yours.

The Day We Were Struck by Surprise

It was Pentecost Sunday, 2019—just over a year ago.
After our church service at Planetshakers, Malcolm and I were walking in the city, as we often do, by the Yarra River.
We were just about to return to our parked car.
Yet…the day was fine, the sky was blue, and there was a celebration up ahead, at Melbourne’s Exhibition Centre.
I felt pulled.
“Let’s go and have a look!”

And so, my husband and I were walking, arm in arm, amongst the happy crowd that day. As we went along, we chatted about the service, what God was doing in our family, and an event I’d attended in that centre, years before.
The common thread of our conversation was faith, and I observed, “Faith goes from glory to glory”.

As I spoke the words, “glory to glory”, my husband and I were struck together, from above and behind.
We hadn’t seen it coming.
It was a giant beach ball, that was being playfully bounced around the crowd.

It was a fun environment, and we laughed.
But I was also astounded.
For the huge ball that collided with us both at the same time, was made of clear plastic, and filled with multi-colored, foil confetti.

Confetti was Pouring Out from Heaven

“Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry.” (Ezekiel 37:2, NKJV)

I was amazed, because only two hours before, during the worship at our church, I’d been encountering the Lord in a vision. [1]
In my mind’s eye, I was standing in an isolated, barren landscape, by a lake.

Everywhere I looked, it was bleak, and plain, dark grey stones covered the ground.
But I was drawn to look upwards.

There, in the sky was what looked to be some kind of circular portal, with the appearance of a large, transparent plastic vent.
And through that opening, a warm wind of the Spirit began to blow from Heaven.

As the wind blew, clouds of multi-colored, foil confetti began pouring out, over the landscape around me.

And whenever a piece of colored confetti touched a grey stone, it was transformed into a precious stone—the same color as the confetti that touched it!
Soon, the ground was covered with precious jewels.
The landscape was being transformed!

But then, my focus was turned towards the vent from Heaven.
All I wanted, was to be immersed in the Spirit, the One who was coming through that vent.
And as I moved towards it, I was praying, “Lord, touch me! Transform me!”

A “Sign” Moment

What a great church service it had been, that day. When we left, there was so much to talk about!
And an hour later, we were still talking, when Malcolm and I were struck by that huge, clear plastic ball, filled with coloured foil confetti.

So, I told him of the vision, and the vent—the one that was circular, clear plastic in appearance, and the colored, foil confetti that flowed out.

There was no doubt to us both, that this was an unusual “sign moment”, on this Pentecost Sunday.
I noted it in my prophetic journal.

And this week, a year later, I felt the Holy Spirit bring it back to mind.
“Pay attention!”

Why Does the Holy Spirit Speak in Mysteries?

The Holy Spirit often speaks in mysteries—as anyone who has prophetic dreams will be familiar with!
And the meaning of His prophetic language and symbols is not always clear immediately. Why does He do this?

  • God is leading us on a journey of intimacy with Him
  • A sign will lead us to seek Him, as well as to study the Bible to discover its meaning
  • Mysteries are a part of the language of the Kingdom, and in the Gospels, Jesus spoke in many parables

In our recent journey, Malcolm and I have often encountered the Lord speaking through the environment.

This week, as I recall this particular encounter we had last year, I’m encouraged.
The environment around us—in our State of Victoria, in Australia—is going through one painful trial after the other.
And just when there seems to be no immediate way out, I hear Him say,

“Look up! This is the time for your faith to go from glory to glory.”

Power is Being Released Through Your Words

Being struck by the ball in that moment has reinforced my belief that God has a sense of humor!
It was also a reminder that my longing for the Holy Spirit has already been answered.
The moment was also a powerful sign for us both; one that continues to encourage us.

And that weekend, God did a deep work of healing in my life, delivering me from past pain.

Perhaps today, this word is for you also.
There is no valley of pain where God cannot reach you, or others through you!
And there is no situation too dark, that his glory cannot visit.

“I will give her vineyards from there, and the Valley of Achor [trouble] as a door of hope…” (Hosea 2:15a, NKJV)
Hear God say today, “In the very place of trouble or failure, I am opening a door for you!”

Words from Heaven

Messages are being released from Heaven!
And as you speak what your Father is speaking, something is happening.

  • Power is being released to transform your environment

All around you, testimonies will be shared, and these will light up the land.

“Confetti” speaks of celebration.
For in the face of everything contrary, He is turning our mourning into dancing.

“He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD!
Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live.”
(Ezekiel 37:4-5, NKJV)

[1] How I receive visions:
When I describe a vision I’ve seen, it’s usually a vivid impression in my mind’s eye, accompanied by a strong sense of God’s Presence. I’m not speaking of an “open” (physical) vision. I believe all prophetic words, encounters and visions should be compatible with Scripture and need to be weighed up.

  2. This morning I was praying for my married daughter and her husband when I was I impressed to open my email. My attention was immediately caught by the title of this post for I had just made a declaration in prayer of being changed from glory to glory. When I read the verse about the door of hope being in the valley of trouble I was so blessed by the Lord’s detailed confirmation to me as a mother. Then I read the portion of the word where you shared about the area where you live going through one painful trial after another. My daughter’s name is Victoria, and like your area,, has been going through one painful experience after another. Praise the Lord for confirmation of His promises! Thank you for your faithfulness in declaring His Word!

    1. Tebogo Mogolwane

      The message is directly speaking to my life. I feel so much blessed by it. After 3 weeks of praying and fasting for my elder brother who was very ill, he passed on. I haven’t had a moment of prayer since then to date.

      I am challenged by the message and feel that the dry bones are resurrecting. The Lord is healing the pain i have been feeling and bringing a moment of peace in my life.

      Be blessed!

      1. Hi Tebogo, I’m sorry to hear of your brother’s passing, may you know your Heavenly Father’s arms surrounding you and imparting comfort and even more, resurrection grace to rise up, Lord for Tebogo to breathe in Your Kingdom atmosphere in a fresh way, to know joy, and light and your favor, in Jesus’ Name

      2. Khethiwe Tembe

        Thank you so much for this message. I’m so touched because last month I lost my prayer warrior friend, I was hoping that she would be able to recover from the operation but unfortunately she didn’t . After praying for her healing for almost a month I still feel like I failed her, I should have prayed more, because she was still young, just married for a year and I was hoping that we still have time to be together but death took her away. It feels like this just happened yesterday the way it’s so painful and whenever I think about her tears just flow like floods. She was like a sister to me.
        Please pray for me to let her go and to heal in my spirit.
        I believe God for a transformation as I’ve been praying for the renewal of my mind.

    2. Yes Esther! I agree with you in Jesus’ Name. He is the God who makes the desert blossom and for rivers to flow in dry places. He is working powerfully on your behalf <3

  4. Thank you Helen.
    Whenever I pray for my husband and our marriage, I see us outside the church covered in confetti, smiling brightly and so happy! Not the case in the natural, but believing by faith that will happen.
    Holy Spirit breathe into the dry bones of our marriage! Amen

    1. Yes Lord!
      Thank You Father that this blog today is a sign, Father you’ve heard Heather’s prayers, you are moving on her behalf and I agree today, that which is dry, is coming to life, there is restoration and newness and strength in this marriage in Jesus’ Name <3

  5. To God be all the glory! For it is very a timely message that our Lord Holy Spirit gave you fòr my healing, encouragement, enhance, and empowered.
