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.

    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. Helen Calder Post author

      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. Malcolm

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

    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. Dana

    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. Helen Calder Post author

      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. DD

    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. Helen Calder Post author

      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.

    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.

  7. joseph kamkile matini

    I used to think is not the right time for me and I thought may God has removed His hand from me as I was doing miracles about His name but now I am afraid.I sometime think I heard wrong when i sometime hear voice talking to me,I don’t do what the word says.

  11. Jean

    Dear Helen
    Thank you for this post so encouraging and fits in with what is going on in my life at this season. I have been praying and asking the Lord to lead me so I do what I am called to do. I have been asking the Lord to use me to lead people to Him.
    As I was praying about my life the Holy Spirit gave me a picture of a plant in a pot on a window sill. The plant did not look very lush. Then all of a sudden a lot of Water like a flood fell on the plant and when I looked at it was covered in droplets of sparkling water. I think that the plant in the pot represents my life (contained)and the water is the Holy Spirit. I am not quite sure what to do with this picture whether to share it at church.Or if there are other meanings?

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Hello Jean, I love that picture, the droplets are a sparkling display upon the plant – as it is said, the Spirit is within us for our sake, and upon us for the sake of others. His manifestation is visible. Reminds me of this…
      They will be called oaks of righteousness,
      a planting of the Lord
      for the display of his splendor.(Is 61:3b)

      1. Jean

        Hello Helen
        Isaiah 61 really spoke to me,especially verses 2 &3 about comforting those who mourn in Zion and oaks of righteousness. Verse 4 also came alive about building ruins ,repairing cities and repairing the devastation of generations. Verse 11 was a bit like my picture – as the earth brings forth sprouts … so the Lord will cause righteousness and praise to sprout before the Nations.
        I am going to pray this over my life. Please pray this for me as well.

  12. Daniel Siwale

  15. Gift

    Truly God speaks, it’s a message directed to me that shows God want me to begin to do his work.
    when l was reading this message it’s like God was talking to me directly, l felt it in my spirit that they are somethings am supposed to be doing but l have been telling myself that the time has not yet arrived and l lost confidence in the work of God, fear it’s taking over and becoming to control my spiritual life.
    Please help me to submit and surrender my life to God.
    Amen Amen Amen

  16. Victor Silas Moonsamy

    Dear Helen … I read your post and realized how much I long to be in a place of ministry where I am used of God. I am presently in a ministry/church were everything is so ‘religious’. I have been so miserable the last four years and these days have become very difficult. Emotionally, physically and financially I am drained. As a family we are at a cross road. My wife went through a bad illness, she had to leave her work, tried business and it is failing. My daughter graduated university this year and can’t seem to find a job. If only God can show me what to do ….. I want to experience a new season. I have found your posts extremely uplifting. Thank you!

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Hi Victor,
      I’m praying for you right now. It’s time for a turn around for you! I pray you find the keys to move forward in prayer and God’s Word and the open doors you and your family need

  17. Florence Johnson

    Helen I have been following you for sometime now, you would be amazed how many of your blogs were on point for what I have experienced and currently experiencing spiritually. This current one is the gem…I have been “waiting” for the past 7 years to open up a transitional living home for homeless, battered, and displaced women and their children. I wrote down the vision and have been in a place of “waiting” as of late God thru the Holy Spirit has said now is the time this current blog confirmed it…thank you so much for your obedient heart pray for me as I will also pray for you and your ministry.

  18. Michael Nixon

  19. Winfred

    Hi Helen, thanks so much for this article, actually it got me thinking about all the revelations the Lord has shown me so far, but yet I don’t know whether the time is ripe or not. But I’ve been blessed by this and God bless you too.

    I will like to share a dream I had with you in “P…te” because it’s rather a long one and will like to inbox you with it, I need some advice as in what to do.

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Hi Winfred, I’m glad to hear you’ve been blessed!
      I don’t share dream interpretations by email and have time challenges in responding to personal questions, but do try to send brief replies to those who reply to the blog emails

  20. Attueyi Nwamaka

    Hi Helen,i am so blessed with every piece sent in your blog. It is just me you always talk about. I have began the walk to my destiny with your write up encouraging me. I expect more. I love you.

  21. CL

    This was such an encouraging message (again!) and appropriate for me (again!). I so enjoy your God-given insight! I am making that prayer my own, because I believe it is time for some things He has spoken to come to pass on earth. . .but would like to ask you – I know it is scriptural to pray that God would remove any obstacles to His work and what He wants to accomplish through you, but can that include praying for the removal of a person (a believer) from the situation?

    Specifically, a small group of us have an authority that made a decision to not allow the growth of a ministry that God had clearly called and defined (and this ministry calling to all of us was confirmed by others – even this authority recognized it as being from God.) We have submitted to this authority and have not progressed with it, (except in travailing prayer that God would change the circumstances!) A person with a confirmed prophetic gift spoke over this authority and said that God was saying: “If you do not do what you are called to do in this ministry, the entire thing will fail.” It appears that that has come to pass, and the ministry, I believe, has failed in its “original design”. However, it is clear to those of us involved that the Spirit is still leading, and this ministry can and will be redefined without this authority’s involvement – but as long as the person is closely involved, it appears it will be very limited. . .is it okay to pray that God will remove this person from their position of authority over it? Would appreciate your insight! Thank you!

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Hi CL, that is a great question!
      I think that is one we have to really be very careful with.
      Rather than pray directively for removal of someone in authority, I believe it’s best to pray for God’s will to be done for that person and the ministry they are involved with.
      If you do see an influence at work, focus mostly on praying in the opposite Spirit. Blessing can move someone from a place they are not flourishing, into God’s greater purpose for them. 🙂

  22. Barbara

    Yessssssss. This is good!! Speaks to my spirit. This is exactly how I have been feeling. Lord,”I pray that my spirit man would ache, with the desire, to bring your kingdom, down here, with mankind.” In Jesus name: AMEN

  24. Vero Guerrero

    Since i been saved its been a big change but i know why i was always different and my gifts and my propose but it seemed like when i found out my gifts and propose it just stoped i thought the lord was mad at me im use to him and the holy spirit being with me so strong (ive had visions of jesus and im sencitive to the holy spirit) i was battleing a demon alone i was sad i thought he was mad at me i still have supernatural things acure but i feel like its not as much as befor he still talks to me and i see him from time but i feel like hes not working threw me i knew he was guna give me a new level of people to help me and he did and the first day at the new church a woman came up to me and told me she saw me somewere else and the lord wanted her to give me word and she didnt and now she did she said he wants me to relax and he’s taking me to a new level and be still and know that he is god she told me i have the ears to hear him and the eyes to see heaven i tolf her yes she said he was pleased with my works and that just made my world because i thought he was mad at me she said he made me unique and he teachs me in unique ways that word changed my life because i know now there are seasons and im ok with that excited for my new journey just wondering when. .i stay learning though? thank you for your blogs you help alot

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Hi Vero, I like the word about relaxing and letting God take you to a new level. I pray you are encouraged and empowered.

  25. Staci

    These kinds of words always perk me up but they also give me great disappointment. I’ve been waiting, and waiting, (and waiting) for almost two decades to be able to walk in authority and for the desires of my heart to be manifested. I’ve heard that it’s not time (Ecc. 3:1-8) from some and from others that I have access NOW to these things. It really makes me ill on some level to hear people close to me as well as pastors and prophetic messengers to be saying so many different messages. Someone was telling me in 2012 that I didn’t have to keep waiting, to live a life of waiting, and that I had access now to what I’ve been hoping for/authority. This made me so angry but I calmly told this person that if I could have access to the answers and authority I would have had it MANY years ago because I’ve been asking for both for years.

    So in light of Ecc. 3:1-8 and what is being said in the above article what is the answer? I’ve heard the “authority is yours” and “the time is NOW!” phrases in so many prophetic messages for many years. I’m tired of it and sad.


    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Hi Staci, I’m sorry to hear of your discouragement, and I do understand that there can be long seasons of waiting for God’s promises to manifest. Today I pray for you to experience a fresh touch of the Spirit and His life and encouragement.
      I don’t believe there is a contradiction between authority and adversity. This year for my husband and myself has been one in which we have faced great challenges and trials. We’ve seen many breakthroughs but also still waiting in some areas. Yes there are seasons in our lives (Eccl) but that doesn’t change the fact that God’s Kingdom is present with us now. I also believe it’s important to weigh up general prophetic words that are to the church body, and personal prophecies as well, against Scripture rather than against our experiences. Personally, I’d rather be taking God’s Word (Scripture and prophetic) and seeking my experiences to align to that, rather than the other way around.
      I pray that you will know the Comforter’s arms around you and the courage to step again into the authority God has for you. <3

      1. Staci

        Thank you very much for the reply and encouragement, Helen. I apologize if I came off as heavy.

        1. Helen Calder Post author

          I understand perfectly Staci – feeling a bit that way myself today! <3

  26. Jonathan

    your message the kingdom is opened was through you to me by God. And it is answering some questions I have in mind. God bless you so much.

  27. Sharon Goggins

    Blessing upon you. Thanks for that encouraging word. You are so right Gods kingdom is always open. And I have been patiently waiting to fulfill his calling in my life. I do feel in the spirit that God is calling those of us to step out now and fulfill his will. I know that there are so many people who are looking for him but there has been no one sent to accomplish his will and the peoples needs. But I have been pressed on every side being obedient and waiting to do what I know that the Lord has called me to do. And that’s to bring healing to those with affirmities. I will ask the lord to speak to me and demand that I step out in faith and bring about changes in the lives of those who seek you for whatever reason.

  28. sani samuel

    Hi am so blessed with this post.

  29. Ramla

    This is really a specific message for me. Since I have moved with my family to Uganga it was like a discomfort zone but from now on I can’t wait. I have a ministry that is reaching muslims for Christ but it was like I came here for holidays. Since the beginning of this July I’m praying God for His directions but today the vision is already there. And I need you to be my prayer Supporter.

  30. Yvonne

    The Lord has placed you to speak into my spirit and confirm some things in my life I’ve wondered about. Thank you Woman of God. Please join with me in praying that in time I will flow in my anointing, releasing the giftings that God has placed in me for the advancement of the Kingdom.

    Thank you for these teachings am moved and so glad for you have opened my thinking concerning the call of God to do His work because the hour is very near. Worship brings the presence of God down, am really blessed.

  33. Ivan Glory

    Hi Helen. Thank you for the wonderful work your doing. I bless the Lord for you.
    This blog is actually talking about me. Indeed I have been waiting for so long to operate in my gift. The Lord a few things about my calling through the prophetic ministry of a certain pastor as I attended a fellowship in my neighbourhood. However the prophetic word seemed like a future work and since then I have been waiting.
    Probably my question would, “how do I start?”

  34. emmanuel menda

  35. Ohwofasa B. Obakore

    Thank you Helen. I am really blessed by your teachings.
    There’s something I need to understand better. Concerning decernment,vision and dreams. Sometimes my eyes are open to see pictures and scene, they come as a flash . I fall into instant sleep,and these flashes come, and immediately after the flash, am awaken,but I dicover they are true visions, but why does it come as a flash (of may be seconds or a minute)?
    Also, God speaks to me also through dreams in the night.The dreams come in simbols like in parables I often don’t understand. Also, when I am around some persons, I don’t feel comfortable, my spirit resist them,even in the church. Please I wish to know more about these my experience.

  36. Marcus

    Thank you for being a blessing.. and for being submissive to God’s word to open the eyes and hearts of those who are hungry for change and hungry for more of the kingdom.
    thank you.
    P.s. I will be looking forward to more !! Be blessed
