‘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. 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. 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. 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.

  2. I had a revelation to go out and teach the Word of God but i am still afraid to move because of my Financial Situation. Please keep me in your prayers

    1. Hi Francis,
      praying for you to have clarity and breakthrough in your situation.
      I encourage you to start sharing even part time, take the small opportunities and see what God opens up for you.

  3. Hi Helen
    Im so happy dont know why but i feel a step ahead i have been waiting for the holy spirit to whisper and tell me to start but after your massege i couldn’t wait anymore thanks a lot

  4. 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

    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. 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

    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.

  7. Hi, just wanted to say, how much fruit I receive from your posts, I find them hands on, practical and very helpful.
    Warm Regards

  8. 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. 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
