Arise, Shine! A Prophetic Word for Discerners

The call is going out. Discerners arise! Put on your glorious garments!
You are freed from shame.

‘Awake, awake, Zion,
clothe yourself with strength! Put on your garments of splendor, Jerusalem, the holy city. The uncircumcised and defiled will not enter you again. Shake off your dust; rise up, sit enthroned, Jerusalem. Free yourself from the chains on your neck, Daughter Zion, now a captive.’ Isaiah 52:1-2 NIV

The residue of darkness is slipping away.

Burdens that were never yours to keep have fallen off your shoulders.

New hope is stirring.

You are breaking loose of restrictions!

  • Past limitations have been cut off your life.

Now, you are walking in grace and glory.

See yourself full of the Holy Spirit, walking confidently as a son, a daughter, with grace and authority.

It’s time to rejoice again.
You are seeing through the clouds to the light. You are seeing past what the enemy is doing, to the heart of the Father and His intention.

You are walking in love.

The Holy Spirit within you is patient and kind. God’s love within you does not boast; it is not proud.

This love does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

God’s love within you does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. (Based on 1 Cor 13: 4-8a, NIV)

You are free from that demonic strategy that has been against you—that one that tried to hold you back from love.

Courage is rising within you.

The enemy may have tried to rob you of the fullness of your calling, but that assignment has been cancelled at the cross.

Jesus has purchased your freedom once and for all by His shed blood.

  • That blood answers every accusation; not a single one can stand.

Now, it’s time for you to experience the full manifestation of your freedom and release.

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.’ (Isaiah 60:1 NIV)

A Quick Hi from My Desk

Happy New Year everyone! I pray today’s brief word of encouragement and exhortation inspired from Isaiah 52:1-2 and other Scriptures stirs you to lift your heart, head and hands.

No matter what you see around you or ahead, the Lord is your light and your salvation. He is working on your behalf.

Wow, it’s sure been difficult re-orienting into a new year of work, but I have been freshly inspired this week, and have just added two brand new videos on the topic of prophetic decrees to the Enliven School of Intimacy and Prayer. You can find our online courses here.

Discernment can Propel You Into an Encounter with God’s Glory

The gift of discernment of spirits is a powerful weapon in times of spiritual warfare, and can be of great assistance when ministering freedom to individuals.

  • And those with a gift of discernment have the extraordinary privilege of being able to perceive the Spirit’s anointing!

Yet many who have the gift of discernment have difficulty knowing what to do with what they are feeling or sensing.

In this recently updated third edition, I have added a chapter on five specific spiritual attacks discerners face and how to overcome each one. I have revised other chapters, added new content and finished with an inspirational chapter on how the gift of discernment can propel you into an encounter with God’s glory.

‘Unlocking The Gift Of Discernment’ incorporates wisdom from Enliven Blog as well as additional valuable material on how to be protected as a discerner in times of spiritual warfare.

    Very timely as I’m currently going through this and have difficulty knowing what to do with what I’m feeling or sensing. Kind of experienced something today and having been thinking about trying to make sense of it and your post was ever so timely. Confirmed my doubts. Thank you Helen 🙂

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Hi Laisa, I’m glad it was a comfort to you, may you experience the Lord’s refreshing today and clarity too

  2. Jules

    Pls Helen i need prayers! Beem following a prophet on social media and agreeinh to her decrees only to find out that she used to be a pagan witch! My heart feels broken and I’m fighting feelings of discouragement in my prayer life because i was a very ardent follower!

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      Sorry to hear of your disappointment, Jules… hopefully by ‘used to be’ that means she has repented and been delivered. Regardless, it is still a shock to you and I pray healing to that in Jesus’ Name! No defilement. Jesus is your tower of strength and your fortress. He is your Redeemer and has already redeemed and turn every word you have made in faith, in His Name into a blessing.

  3. Victoria

    Been struggling with career breakthrough, so your message if perfectly timed just as I had bad news today. Thank you for the timely encouragement.

  4. Mpfareleni

    Thanks for the Prophetic word of encouragement and exhortation. How much more if our ministry’s name is Mount Zion! This is prophetic . Praise the Lord.

  5. Assa Achien'ga

    About 3 hours ago, before I received this prophetic message, I had just walked from a church in Nairobi where I went to give my life to Jesus Christ. Here it is I’m receiving a prophetic message in my email inbox from you Hellen. What a message from God. I believe I’m risen. I’m shining. All enemies have been subdued.

    Praise Jesus.

  6. Maureen

    Thank you so much for these Prophetic Words, Helen. It’s a confirmation of what the Lord is telling me these days. I wept when I read what you wrote because I knew the Lord was talking to me. By the way; I love your Prophetic School. I love the way you teach. You’re such a blessing. Thank you so much.

    1. Helen Calder Post author

      I’m glad it has been meaningful for you Maureen, our Father is so good! That’s great about the prophetic school, I’m just getting back into it and look forward to engaging more soon.

  7. Joy Lucas

    Thank you so much for this encouragement today. It is just so relevant to my situation moving to a new part of the country and seeking God’s Will.
    In the past I had trouble with ‘love’ especially towards my mother. I prayed for some time that the Lord would fill me with love for her. He answered and filled me with love for her and others that I could not have felt on my own. The comments on 1Cor. 13 are a reminder to continually seek to be filled with this love through the power of the Holy Spirit. We can’t do it on our own.

  8. Nondumiso

    Thank you so so Mam. You’re always spot on. May God help me to love more and more. Amen. I bought 3of your books in learning and growing.

  9. Helen Calder Post author

    I’m glad you are finding the resources empowering, Nondumiso. And amen to that, filled to overflowing with His love

  10. Ruby

    Wow! What an on time prophetic word. I was just laying in my bed this morning thinking….. I’ve been feeling very ashamed about not being able to walk in my calling. For the past two months I have gone through spiritual attacks and my career has been held back. But your message this morning matches what the Lord spoke yesterday as I prayed. He told me the threshold was now open.
    Helen please pray that the Lord will give me motivation and confidence to sprint towards and through it.

  11. Felicia Sibeko

    I receive this powerful word of prophecy,I’ve been going through a difficult time of life, I am rising up and I shine for the Glory of the Lord is rising upon me,Amen

  12. Tom Kilburn

    Helen, as always your words bring love, encouragement and enlightenment! I have been following you for a few months. Just downloaded your book on Discernment. I am so looking forward to what the Holy Spirit wants me to see. Keep speaking words of love and light in that pure heart. Thank you for writing these blogs!

  13. Tracy Flood

    Many times during my 5 a.m. prayer and devotion, your email will come in and it will be in line with what I am either going through or what I am seeking God as far as answers and revelations to dreams I am having. I love the way the Holy Spirit moves and how God word is always on time. Thank You for your obedience and walk with God, I’ve been in a dry season for a very long time and it has taken a toll on me and how thankful I am that God hears the cries of the righteous.

    The residue of darkness is slipping away…YES!
    Burdens that are not yours to keep are falling off your shoulders…YES!
    Hope is stirring…YES!
    Burdens that are not yours to keep are falling off your shoulders…YES!
    You are breaking loose of restrictions…YES!

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah!

    Thank you very much Helen Calder for sending me prophetic word which help me to grow in God and inspiring me too much for my life, As you know about my life, what a tragedy life I passed, now my health is better thanbe before. Now I have one problem, that is prostate enlarge and cholesterol high. Fifteen years ago I did head operation because of brain tumor, but nothing happened but our Lord Jesus healed me. God bless you, and your family, your ministries forever.

  15. Mary

    This is so timely for me. I’ve been thinking about an issue which was handled unfairly by the people who were supposed to do justice for me. It’s disturbed me for about two hours and I was just about to settle and read God’s word then pray, then I read this. Am encouraged and reminded of how God’s kind of love should make me react at a time such as this. Thank you for sharing. Be blessed.


    Bravo God’s General, Helen, for your inspiringly timely message of solace and encouragement as I was down but now courage is rising within me bcause the enemy has indeed been trying to rob me of the fullness of my calling for the past five years, but that assignment has been cancelled at the cross. Jesus’ blood answers every accusation; not a single one can stand. Your message is very prophetic to me and has reenergenised me spiritually.

    Now it is time for me to experience the full manifestation of my freedom and release and the infill of the Holy Spirit and move on to preach the Word with power for the salvation of souls without doubt.nor fear.

  17. Veronica Guerrero

    The enemy nearly took me out with my self image lie that I came in to agreement with and condemning me but I have been standing for in the faith that God is freeing me I feel the joy pushing through the fear and lies and the feelings of guilt and shame I am feeling the love once again I couldn’t feel it when I felt God didn’t love me for who I am but I knew that wasn’t God I know his heart I have breakthrough in Jesus name this word is a timely word exactly what I went through for 4 months

  18. Carole

    I just received your January blog. It is strong confirmation and meshes perfectly with another prophetic word I received from the Lord for 2019. How awesome and faithful is our God! He is doing this; bringing us forward in the purpose and place of His calling. So blessed to be one of His children! Thank you for your faithfulness. Blessed every time I hear from you.

  19. Stanley

    Hi and praise Jesus Hellen…this word is timely and indeed meant for me…have been following your prophetic decrees and they speak to my life directly. I pray God keeps revealing himself to me deeper through you. Am blessed. I request for your prayers..I have been in debts and am being threatened and I haven’t had a breakthrough to settle the debts. I trust God for provision even as I seek to settle the debts.
    Thank you Helen

  20. Dorothy Johnson

    Your message has been an encouragement to me. I’m ready to walk in the light and my gift of discernment. I will continue to pray and look to the hills from whence cometh my help.

  21. Evelyn Leonard

    This is a confirmation. Thank Father God, Your LOVE endure forever, that I am overcomer of sin of ‘pride”. I will continue to “walk in humility”

  22. Martha Smith

    Hi Helen,
    Thank you for the prophetic courage for the new year I receive it. Its conformed: Before i go to open my email this morning, i was worshiping the LORD! song in mind: Shine your light& let the whole world see we’re singing for the glory of the risen King. Savior, he can move the mountain. My God is mighty to save, author of salvation he rose and conquer the grave!
    This also reminds me: Acts 2:17 In the last days; God says, i will pour out my spirit upon all people. Your sons & daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.
    I’m excited to be sharpened on my discernment Spirit for i had no idea how to operate it! To God all be the glory.
    Thank God for you, for this course,
    May God continue to enrich you!
    Happy New year!

  23. CL

    Thank you Helen! Felt like every word was for me! Over and over, through many different sources, God is telling me that my oppression and waiting is over – and that fulfillment of all that He has called me to – my destiny – is coming so soon. . .I pray that it is! And discernment is a huge part of what He has given me to use for the ministry He has given me – so thank you! This was an encouragement – again!

  24. Dee

    Hello Helen, I always need a word of encoragement. When I overcome one obstacle, then I am faced with 2 or more. Within 1month ( renting to own, owner made bad investment. They are seizing the house, I have 30 +days to move. I fell had severe concussion, got nails done infection in one finger, almost lost, teller put deposit in wrong account bounced checjk and extra fees and last check engine light came on in SUV).
    I know I am walking in the light and I know I am more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ. Continue being the mouth piece for God, You are receiving the fruit of your labor (people being delivered and set free)!
    Thank you and i speak a HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!!!! A Word for you, this blog and classes will make room and abudance for you. This is a great responsibility we need to lift you up and encourage you as well.

  25. Sam

    God’s blessing to you Helen and on your ministry, inspiring word! Keep steadfast in Him! To Him alone be the glory! Amen.

  26. William Clark

    Helen, you gave signs and experiences that discerners have. Most of my life I believed I had the gift of discernment, but many times I didn’t think about it. I have had several of your discernment signs or experiences from childhood through many adult years. When I would go to a new church or another new job, I got to where I would expect to have spiritual challenges from some people. I assume that the more one thinks about and prays about it, the more the Lord will give understanding.
