Prophetic Word: Power is Being Released as You ‘Stay’

’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)


Notes:
[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, the part of the message that spoke to me the most was “you are Mine.” Recently, as I was walking into my front door, I heard Him say this. I’ve been struggling in my intimacy with Him, and not spending enough time with Him. I long for Him to be my “first love again.” Still, there is a shift and a new season coming, He has big things ahead, but more than all that want to be “the apple of His eye” again. A call to inimacy is just what I needed. Thank you for your faithfulness to Him, Helen!

      The longing you mention is the key, Heather, right there is the reassurance your Father is at work, drawing you into that intimate place

    What a timely word for today, Sunday the 9th of June. To stay and spend time with Jesus. In the midst of all the distractions of a busy life of work and motherhood. I am part of the worship team at church, playing guitar and singing, but this morning I felt to stay home and rest. The Lord Lead me to read Psalm 119 where David talks about life in Gods word and in his presence there is a place of quiet retreat. V 114. Then during the week this song came to my mind, HE TOUCHED ME. Written by the Gaithers. Your word for today confirms how much the Lord wants to be close to his people.

    Helen! I have been wondering if God is going to fulfill His calling in my life. I felt exactly that my ministry is being delayed and hindered, the enemy is using my past as stumbling block!
    Wondering, what i must do? All i see is distribution around me. Its hard to concentrate!
    I have been praying for a fresh word from God, a fresh instruction! A miracle of something to remind me God’s call in me! Even though i noticed that God is at work on my behave. But, i see hindrance at the same time.
    Thank you, I’m encouraged, this always reminds me God is working through you mightily; You send our prayers, and He will send us instructions back through you!
    Amazing, encouraging word
    Thank you Helen!

    Hi Helen, thank you so much for this word. It really spoke to my heart.
    I can hardly believe you mentioned the lion’s paw. Today during Praise & Worship I saw an impression of a lion’s face. Then worship was ending. Some times I wish it would last for hours.
    I feel like I’m right on the edge of speaking prophetically, & I do occasionally, but I really want to try to invest in your teachings to grow. Here in South Georgia there is not much for me.
    God has definitely called prophets to go forth on the internet so many more people can grow & learn. I am also subscribed to your YouTube channel.
    My prayers are with you, your family, & your ministry.

    Helen, your word about spending time with Jesus settled some things for me. One I know I need to spend more time with him, 2 I was having a real dilemma about staying with my mother or moving somewhere unknown over the last week. And your word has been a confirmation for me. I told the Lord about the situation and trusted he would deal with it and your word “Stay” stuck out to me.

    It also confirmed to me that the church where I am at is where the Lord want’s me to be. I mean the word “stay” really stuck out to me but the why is even better. Thank You for your ministry and your resources. I feel a very loving, caring and compassionate spirit about your ministry. I know I didn’t come here by accident! So many confirmations by your word Power is being released “Stay”.
