Prophetic Insight for 2015: It’s Time to Encounter God

Prophetic_Insight_2015_Encounter_God‘Encounter’ means coming face to face with God. It is a Divine appointment, in which you have a heightened awareness of God being very up close and personal with you.

I believe the Holy Spirit is saying that 2015 is to be a year of Divine encounter.

Encounter will take place through Spirit-given hunger that causes you to seek after God. There may also be unexpected moments of encounter—taking place at a time and circumstance when you least anticipate it.


Unpacking Hearts like a Suitcase

The picture I have is of God, in this season of encounter, unpacking hearts, like unpacking a suitcase.

The first thing I see coming out is like package filler or stuffing—it is like when you buy something new and it has been packed in to retain the shape of the product.

And Father is saying, “There are some things in your lives and ministry that are like filler, they have been like a place-keeper, and they have been right and good, but this is a new season.

It is time to yield some things up that are not the essentials, because you need to make room for the more of what I have for you.”

And I see Him taking out articles and examining them, and some He is not putting back, whilst other things He is putting back in a different order.

It’s a time to yield values and priorities to God and be willing for Him to shift them and rearrange them. It is also a time to yield up your abilities, your expertise and experience, and realise that there are some things that He will show you how to do things differently for a greater result.

Be prepared for tweaking and adjustment.

Be prepared to leave the comfortable and familiar, because there is a new harvest and fruitfulness out past the comfort zone of your previous experience.

This takes hunger for God and softness of heart. It takes flexibility. There are some who are not willing, but for whom God’s love and grace is so rich that He will actually allow a breaking in the encounter. And it is because His intention and destiny is so profound and powerful for them.


Transformation

And the season of encounter is going to result in a transformation. It is going to so profoundly affect your viewpoint and perspective that you wonder why you never realised certain things before.

Because you see differently, you know that you can never be the same again, or do things in the same way. It will result in a significant shift in your life and in the life of your family, relationships, ministry, business, work, church, and every area of your life.


Spread

As you embrace the encounter with God and what it means for your life, others around you will also be drawn to encounter. Your obedience and willingness to align with your Father’s intention in the season of encounter will result in your influence will be extended.

Your testimony of what God is doing will cause the hearts of others to hunger for their own Divine appointment. You will become an agent of encounter, and see the ‘unusual’ become commonplace as hearts turn to God.

    I feel this word is in the atmosphere waiting to burst out, God is moving in people’s lives quickly and like never before. People are encouraged in the Lord and are having personal encounters that move them in new ways. I can’t wait to see what He does in 2015!

  2. Louise

    SO GOOD!! And in line with other prophetic words I’ve had recently 🙂 He has been preparing me for this next level this past year. We’ve moved house, added a family member and I resigned from a ministry role. Your blogs on transition were so on the button & confirming when I made that decision earlier this year! He’s been doing awesome things in our family and new community recently, so bring on 2015!

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Hi Louise, wow that is a big year of change for you and your family! May 2015 bring with it, even more, a fresh sense of God’s Presence and movement in your lives.

  3. Brittany

    Thank you for your articles. They are a blessing to many. God has truly given you a gift. Would you pray for me? My name is Brittany Reed I live in Columbus, Ohio . 2014 has not been a good year for me. I’ve gone through many attacks especially on my mind. Thank you. God bless.

  4. Helen Calder Post author

    Hi Brittany, I do pray for you – may this Christmas and New Year bring with it a fresh awakening in your heart to Father’s intense, personal love for you, may the boldness of the Holy Spirit cause you to rise above the struggles, may you find keys to help you in the battle and may you be gifted with Divine appointments, of people who will help and be a blessing to you along the way.
    It’s a journey and a process, this life with God and not an easy one. But it helps to know, ‘all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.’ (Rom 8:28)
    Bless you

  5. uju

    I thank and praise God for what and how he’s been moving and turned my life to. I have had great encounter with him past last year and I know he is going to do more. But pls I wan to sak you a question and it goes this way, sometimes when I read my bible or praise God in my heart I always see splashes of light like a floruscent like some times it coulld be colourful, and sometimes I cld hear a vice inside me , jus as I am praying saying at the same time as I pray kind of interrupting my prayer but always saying yes to my prayer and giving me full assurance to my prayer that he has done it, that he says to me or wold say I will dfo it.. And when I pray its always like am chating with God. Becos I hear him reply to my prayer in my heart and sometime I hear in my ear. And some time I feel like electrifying in my body when I pray or praise him and wold start saying things, like giving out message. Sometimes I find out that I praise God while sleeping, don’t always have sound sleep cos I am always praising him, but dat has stopped now. I dnt really seem to understand or know who I am or my area of calling. My dreams come true, I hear , and see visions but with eyes open and close. When I say tins to pple dey will ask me how did I know wat was going on in der life , some will say dat xactly wat happened.but sometimes it ceases I dnt receive , hear or see,and dnt knw why its so. Can u pls tell me the reason its so. Tnx n God bless.

    Dear Uju,
    You have a great testimony!
    The experience of hearing God powerfully and sometimes not hearing Him clearly is one that is common to all of us in prophetic ministry.
    Here is an article where I mention that and also talk about how journaling is one way that we can help sharpen our ability to hear from God in the dry times:
    https://www.enlivenpublishing.com/blog/2013/06/25/take-time-to-sharpen-your-prophetic-gift/

    As to why, I believe God loves us to seek and hunger after Him, it honours Him when we pursue Him. He loves to take us on a treasure hunt and go on a journey of discovery with Him.

  7. Terri Mackay

    So be it!! I stand in agreement with this word precious sister; I decree and declare that this word burn deep within the hearts of men and women throughout this nation; to become truth; to rise up and go further and deeper in the things of God and for the glory of His Kingdom.

    Helen your word resounds and burns in my spirit; in perfect alignment with the desire of my heart; it confirms words others have spoken and revelations Holy Spirit has given – I receive it into my life.

    I honor for your obedience to the King; may He bless you exquisitely

    Thank you

    With love Terri

  8. Helen Calder Post author

    Amen and amen, Terri.
    Such a great prayer and declaration, thank you!
    May 2015 bring all we have shared, beyond expectation for you:
    ‘Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.’ (Eph 3:20-21)

  9. Janelle Tompson

    Helen, thank you for confirming several prophetic words that have been prayed over our family this year. This has most certainly been a year of stripping back & rebuilding… God’s way… we embrace the lessons & wisdom gleaned through 2014 and are ready to jump into our year of jubilee… shalom, peace & prosperity. Bless you for your clarity in the Spirit and your obedience to His Words. I can’t wait for 2015… it’s going to be the best year yet! Blessings, Janelle x

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Amen for the Year of Jubilee, Janelle. As a family, we’ve already had a Jubilee breakthrough in the past 10 days and now are anticipating more to come in 2015. Such a great word from Ps Russell at Planetshakers, and one that has touched us personally. May 2015 bring a sense of fresh breakthrough for you and your family. 🙂

  10. Chris

    Hi Helen,
    I could just feel faith raising up within me as I was reading this article. An expectation for a move of God. This is a powerful prophetic word. We cant have an encounter with God and remain the same. I like what you said, that it all starts with a deep hunger and thirst for God’s presence. I am really blessed by this word and looking forward to a fresh and new encounter with the Lord in 2015. Jeremiah 29:13 ”You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart”

  11. Helen Calder Post author

    Amen, Chris, let faith rise! Love that Scripture, have been meditating on that lately along with this one:
    “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” (Luke 11:9-10)

  12. uju

    Ttanx helen , I appreciate you , may Almighty God continue to pour on more and more anointing in jesus name … Amen.

  13. Amy

    I receive this word Mrs. Calder, and I am in agreement with it. You are awesome! … and as always, a very timely word. My Bishop’s past sermon (last Sunday) was entitled: An encounter with God.
    I am ready for transformation from the creator. Love you:)

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Hi Amy… yes! That is so good. You are a significant woman of God. May 2015 be a year of encounter, transformation and spread for you. He is the God of the ‘more.’
      🙂

  14. Mildred

    Good morning,

    Women of God. This prophetic word is the third confirmation of what God told me during my prayer time.

    God is awesome! And I’m ready to go to a higher level .

    God bless.

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Hi Mildred, having 3 confirmations – that’s an encounter with God right there! He is highlighting and underlining what He desires to do in your life. May 2015 be one of great significance for you. Thank you for the comment.

  15. Kelly Penny

    Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! These past few months God has been stretching me (something I asked specifically for) and has been bringing to my spirit that this next year is going to be a BIG one! He has been impressing upon me to thank Him for grace and favor. I have a prohpetic calling on my life, one that has been seen by my spiritual leaders and encouraging me to grow…I am open to His pull on my spirit and I am willing to do and go and be whatever He says. I am just learning, but I have a deep, deep hunger to know, understand and learn more about this gift on my life. I know this is not the only gift He has given me, and I use the others with great ease, but I feel that the prophetic gift will be one that requires much more of me than the others…I am willing!!! Thank you for additional confirmation! Thank you for allowing the Holy Spirit to use you in this way!

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      That’s great Kelly – you are right, to grow in the prophetic gift and calling requires that depth of allowing the Holy Spirit to work within us and also to step out of our comfort zone many times! Deep calls to deep… and you are ready for it. May 2015 be one of greater revelation of who God is and who you are in Him. Bless you.

  16. David

    Hi! I am Apostle D Mothibi in S.A . I receive this prophecy to see it happening in my life , the ministry and the entire nations…. My prayer is for next year: whatever the Lord will do ..please let Him not do it without me… Amen

  17. Chontae

    Hi Helen,

    It’s Chontae here from New Zealand it’s been a while I know and so much as been going on here. Great things since we’ve last spoken. Although I’ve not commented lately I still float around reading your articles as they inspire me greatly. I really love this Word and is on par it just resonates with my spirit. Be blessed Helen as the Lord propels you into 2015.

    Blessings
    Chontae from New Zealand.

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Hi Chontae, it’s great to hear from you! Happy New Year, may it be a powerful season of God encounters and breakthroughs for you! 🙂

  18. Barbara

    Your articles are awesome and on point. Each time I receive them I just get excited. I have been blessed with the gift of prophecy & discernment and I am struggling with my mind, and also with feelings of unworthiness. It’s quite a challenge to hear fom God and then tell someone what is being said. Especially if one is supposed to. I learnt the hard way that it’s not about me, I just need to deliver the message and the rest is up to God and the intended receiver. For the past three years including this one I have have been hungry and praying for a personal encounter with God. Each time I think of the relationship Moses had with him I just wish I could have a similar relationship the one of having the opportunity to speak one on one and receiving an answer right there. I hunger for the things of God so much but I feel I am not doing enough or praying properly maybe. It feels as though something is missing. The thing is I have no one else but Jesus. Yes I have family and a daughter but no one else really matters to me as much but it’s as though God doesn’t understand how much I need him and how much I love him. Everything I do seems so tiny and hardly enough. He speaks to me and sometimes I think it’s not him speaking to me or that he’s referring to someone else because it just amazing what he’s saying. Your website is motivating and at times I wish you werent so far away but thank you and “the hunk” for the articles. Keep praying for us that in due time he will honour us with numerous encounters . He is High and Lifted up Yaweh, Yaweh. 2015 will be a great year of restoration, of great anointing and manifestation of gifts and prophecys. May everyone who follows your website including youselves Encounter God in such a way that no one will remain the same when they have

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Barbara, thank you for sharing, I love your heart!
      You will grow in confidence as you grow in understanding how much God the Father loves you and who He has created you to be. And then that will overflow through your gifts onto others. May this be a year in which the insecurities and things of old fall away and you emerge bright and tall, knowing God’s extraordinary acceptance and favour on your life.

  19. Jon-Paul

    Felt the spirit move in me as I read this. Have just recently returned to my God and he has been revealing many awesome things, even breaking down the things I thought I knew, and showing me the truth. Jesus is Lord. Amen. Christ first, No turning back now. That’s what he has planted in my heart.woooooooh

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Sounds wonderful, Jon-Paul. May your relationship with Him and the encounters continue and grow throughout this year and beyond!

  20. Talabebi

    Hi Helen! Upon reading this, I was stunned. I believe this is what God did to me for the first two months of 2015. Amazing God!

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      That’s wonderful Talabebi, how encouraging for you, and for me too! Thanks for leaving the comment. 🙂

  21. Jo

    Yes I had a visitation after a cleansing and not long after was reminded by him ….how he had raised me up to love everyone unconditionally.

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      I love that, Jo. It is possible because we have love Himself on the inside of us. (1 John 4:16)

  22. Ramona
