’Spend Time with Me Now’

Prophetic Word, Power is Being Released“And I will send the fulfillment of the Father’s promise to you. So stay here in the city until the mighty power of heaven falls upon you and wraps around you.” (Luke 24:49 TPT)

The season of Pentecost is a time to celebrate and reflect on the coming of the Holy Spirit to God’s people. [1]

It is also an opportunity to lean in again, and receive a fresh touch of the Holy Spirit.

And this week, as I’ve been praying about what to write, I had the impression of a lion’s paw coming down from Heaven. It was powerful and yet gentle. [2]

The message was a firm, ‘Stay!’

The King is calling, ‘Spend time with Me now.’

God is bringing a sense of His weightiness; His glory.
It’s a call to pause. To wait.

To be caught, voluntarily—and yet inescapably—in the Hand of God.

Power is Being Released as You ‘Stay’

To Some, He is Calling, ‘Turn aside!’

“Then Moses said, “I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.”” (Exodus 3:3, NKJV)

I believe the Lord is coming to those who have been waiting a long time, or felt held back in some way. There have been signs—perhaps small signs—drawing your attention. You perceive God is at work.

And just as Moses turned aside when he noticed the burning bush, your Father is inviting you to meet with Him. Hear Him call:

“Turn aside, and you will hear Me speaking with you all the more clearly.

Right here, I will empower you and teach you of the authority that is yours in My Name.

  • I will fill you and recommission you
  • I am removing the shame of the past and releasing you into your true identity—in greater measure

As Moses did, you will be empowered in this encounter with God, to confront that enemy that has been against you, and against those you love.

Your destiny, and the greatest victory of your life, is on the other side of this encounter with Him.

It’s freedom time.

To Some, He is Urging, ‘Pause!’

‘And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:41-42, NKJV)

The Lord is calling to some who have been busy, distracted and worried.
And He is saying, ‘I have the richest of treasures waiting for you, as you pause and spend time with Me!
The wealth of intimacy.
Gifts from My treasury; personal words and messages from My heart to yours.

Here, life-giving words from Scripture will pour over you. The pure gold of My Word belongs to you.
There is much I would teach you.

You are Mine!

There has been a contention for your attention. Distraction has pulled you, and through it, the enemy has sought to rob you.
But you are Mine, and Mine alone!

There are so many things I want to say to you, as you position to listen.
I have more, that can only be found in the secret place with Me.

To All, He is Saying, ‘Stay!’

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5, NKJV)

The Lord is calling to all who are His. Hear Jesus say, ‘Come to the place of abiding!
Embrace the purging and cleansing that comes from My Holy Presence.
I am your Source, so let Me be your Source.
Know the rest—the peace of heart—that comes from depending upon Me alone.

This Invitation is for You

To the hurried, to the distracted.
To the disappointed, to those who are overwhelmed.
To the wondering, and the waiting.
To the seeking and the hopeful.
To those filled with faith.
And to the weak.

Hear the call of the Holy Spirit. Hear the whispers of the Father. Hear the invitation of Jesus.

‘Spend time with Me now’.

‘When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.’ (Acts 2:1-2, NKJV)

[1] The prophetic picture of the ‘lion’s paw’ is an impression I received as I was praying about the message for Enliven Blog this week. Section one is inspired from the story of Moses (Exodus 3), section two from the story of Mary and Martha (Luke 10) and section three from Jesus’ teaching of the vine and branches in John 15.
[2] Pentecost is traditionally celebrated in the church calendar each year seven weeks after Easter. this year it calls on Sunday 9th June 2019.

    Hi Helen!
    I’m new to your blog. I find it very intriguing and want to learn more!
    In response to your current question for this June 6th submission; I found the Turn Aside message spoke to me the most. I am just discovering my position as a prayer intercessor and believe I may be a prophetic intercessor! This revelation is all very new and exciting to me.! As in this message; I’ve had visions and words come to me in the last few weeks. Some I can explain and have had confirmed and some are still a mystery. I want to go deeper in my understanding of intercessory prayer which I believe is for every believer.

  2. Polsapalli Shekar

    Hi Sister, I am Pastor Polsapalli from viskhapatnam,India I am very much touched and blessed by your prophetic message. Out of three topics I like the Stay prophecy very much.Here abiding in Him so that we can flourish. Let us all allow Him to be our source. It is wonderful.I will be preaching the same tomorrow in the service.
    Thanks for your prophetic words and vision.

  3. Hello
    I too have experienced the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit in my life , including healing, a miracle, and even being transported from one road to another instantly (which no one would believe if there had not been another person in the car with me). I believe the reason many church gatherings do not experience the gifts of the Spirit operating now is because tradition is cancelling out truth. The falling away of many and the quenching of the Holy Spirit is prophesied regarding the end times.

  4. Mum Helen, I relate mostly to point one and three. I believe am being asked to spend time with Him and at the same time I believe there things that has been a great distraction to me. It is in this respect that am writing seeking counsel. The Lord called me into an intercessory prayer assignment using Luke 2:36, the case of Anna that served God day and night with fasting and prayer. Long after the Lord confirmed a full time prayer assignment through a man of God in a meeting I attended somewhere. I never told him anything about myself, never meet him on one on one. Now here is my problem, I have tried joining some praying, intercessory groups but it never turned out well for me. I have even tried to bring people together to pray, one thing or the other happened. Sometimes I just feel better just praying on my own. What do you think the Lord may be saying. Presently there are two praying group I am a part of and am just having this feeling to withdraw from them. Would love Holy Ghost counsel from you.

  5. Amani Nondo Moses

    Am Moses. I would like to move in a prophetic rhema and being fully by the Holy Spirit and anointed by other gifts of the Holy Spirit. Your assistance is needed.
    Thank you

  6. This blog post proved to be very significant in my walk with God. After months of intense dryness in that walk, and struggling with distractions that overwhelmed my ability to focus on God, the Holy Spirit used words in this blog, that spoke to me so strongly that I believe God was clearly using it to address some issues and call me back to Him. The call to “Spend time with me now”….and “Turn aside, and you will hear Me speaking with you all the more clearly.” encouraged me to turn my eyes away from the intensity of distractions in my life, to focus on Him, the One who wants to spend time with us. The key line that spoke to me was “There has been a contention for your attention. Distraction has pulled you, and through it, the enemy has sought to rob you. But you are Mine, and Mine alone!” Wow..how this hit home for me!!! People around me could not understand or relate to how severely distractions were pulling me away from God, or the battle I was losing daily as the enemy worked overtime to try to rob me of my previous intimate relationship with God. But I felt understood when I read this blog. I called to Him for help and since then He has been pouring out His Spirit as I have returned to Him, cried out to Him and yielded to His will and purposes for my life. I knew i needed to hunger for Him again, and He has provided the hunger and thirst i desperately needed as I asked. I am now overcoming those distractions daily!

    To reinforce what God was doing here, I signed up for the School of Intimacy and Prayer, despite being quite unsure about whether Prophecy fit into God’s plan for me. This teaching has turned out to be exactly what I needed at this point in my journey of renewing my intimate relationship with God. I’ve had questions, and at times been unsure around some things like praying in tongues, and this teaching has reinforced and strengthened my understanding and my intimacy with Him. It’s answered questions I had. I’ve had no one I felt comfortable with, to speak about experiences I’ve had with the power of God and Holy Spirit, but the School of Intimacy is for me like a conversation with someone, where I am being provided with helpful concepts that assist me to determine where prayer, tongues, and prophecy fit into my walk with Him. Helen has spoke about how God may birth something within you and how that may be experienced. It was as if she was speaking directly to me and what I have experienced. I have been reassured through this training, that my journey with God and experiences with the Holy Spirit are indeed legitimate and that I’m not the only one who has experienced even seemingly unusual things as God has chosen to work in my heart and pour his purposes and passion into my life. My faith in, and the depth of, my experience of praying in tongues has grown tremendously after hearing Helen’s teaching on this topic. I have yearned to learn more for a long time, and finally have received support and understanding through these teachings. I can’t say enough about the impact the School on Intimacy has had, in building my faith and strengthening my walk with God!!!! I review parts of the teaching over and over as they minister exactly to where I’m at in this journey with God right now. I even found myself moved to pray in tongues as I listened to Helen (yes, in the Spirit you can do two things at once because the Spirit can work while we are doing something else). I feel like God is opening up a huge banquet table of food for me as I listen, and I believe the Spirit is ministering to me at the same time. God is using specific things within these teachings to vault me and no doubt others forward in our walk with HIm! I am so grateful for these teachings!!

  7. My name is Regina,I had such a fire for God once.The message turn aside is just on time.I married a man whose acquaintances at times have caused much trouble in our home.I use to feel such a love about me just basking in God.There are times we’ve had good things prophesied over us ,but again sometimes I believe I married outside of Gods will.Please pray for us.I keep saying I forgive him for calling me stupid but I still feel this hurt.I don’t call him names.I hate that.Thank you you’re such a blessing
