The Holy Spirit is breathing upon God’s people.
He is saying, “Beloved! Awaken and arise!”

Awakening comes before arising!

Most of us awaken daily to the awareness of time. Our first thought may be, “What time is it?”
I believe right now, the Holy Spirit is stirring us to a consciousness of time—Heaven’s time.


The Kingdom Time Zone

Heaven's Time Zone, Kingdom TimeHere in Melbourne, Australia, we are in Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST). My husband and I have close family in New Zealand and the UK. Between us, we live in 3 different time zones.

When my daughter lived in Scotland, I sometimes chatted to her as she walked the streets of Edinburgh. While she was active in broad daylight, I was going nowhere.
It was after midnight in Australia.

Sometimes our lives are like this. We say “Father, it’s dark. I’m stuck. Where are you in my life?”
We cannot see what He is doing.

But in the meantime, our Father is operating in His time zone.
He says, “I am moving”.

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” (Isa 43:19a, NIV)

It’s Now O’Clock!
It’s the local time of Heaven.
It’s Kingdom Time.


Created Time and Kingdom Time

‘For thus says the High and Lofty One
Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy…’ (Isaiah 57:15a, NKJV)

While we live in our temporal time zone—in a system of time created by God (Gen 1:14), our Father dwells in the time zone of eternity. [1]
He lives and works in the eternal now.

In the book of Revelation, Jesus declares,

‘“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”’
(Rev 1:8 NKJV)

All at once, He dwells in past, present and future.

So, if you are wondering about the timing of God for your life, be encouraged today:

Your Father operates both within and outside of your time—and you are His beloved child.

You are a citizen of His Kingdom (Eph 2:19).

He is saying, “Beloved! Awaken and arise!”


Synchronized with Heaven

Some clocks can be set to view different time zones at once.
You can see the local time in another country.
You know how to interact with someone who is operating in that time.

When you perceive what is happening in Kingdom Time, it changes the way you respond, here and now.

You become synchronized with what is on God’s agenda. [3]


No Longer a ‘Time Zone Orphan’

“I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you”. (John 14:18, NKJV)

A time zone orphan feels that what they accomplished in the past, or what they once had, is lost to them.

But those past exploits and encounters with God—those past sacrifices and prayers—have not been used up or wasted. They are still live and present before the Throne of God.

The ripple effect of what they produced is happening now.

That work God did in your life… your family. That prophetic promise, it’s LIVE; it’s NOW.

Hear Him say, “See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.” (Isaiah 49:16 NIV)


Out of Your Waiting Room

As prophetic people, we sometimes wonder, ‘when will this transition end?’ We long for the future fulfillment of what God has promised.

Your Father wants you to know, He holds your future in His hands now.
Not one detail escapes His attention. He is working all things together for good (Rom 8:28).

In the midst of the trial, we can declare as the Psalmist did, “My times are in Your hand!”
(Psalm 31:15)

Today, hear your Father’s invitation, “Come out of the waiting room and into My Throne Room!”


You Will Encounter God

‘Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.’ (Prov 13:12 NKJV)

When HE is our desire, our heart-sickness will be healed.

We realize that His plan has been for intimacy all along. And that to obey Him is simply to be with our Father in the ‘now’ thing He is doing.

Even when obedience involves costly surrender.
Or it means holding on to faith in the midst of a trial.

Hear your Father say, “Join Me now!”
“It is My delight to be with you and to share My Kingdom with you.” (Luke 12:32)

If you have been hurt during an extended time of waiting, receive a fresh touch from the Holy Spirit. He is at work, setting your heart—your inner clock—to Kingdom Time.


Faith is Released in Heaven’s Time Zone

In Heaven’s time zone, you can see God’s promise already accomplished.

‘Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.’ (Heb 11:1, NKJV)

The word translated ‘substance’ means ‘that which has actual existence’. (Strong’s G5287, Thayers)

And that assurance, that ‘now’ of ownership is only obtained as you step into Kingdom Time.

You can then declare in faith, “I have the substance of God’s promise now!”

Like our Father, we can ‘call those things which do not exist as though they do’ (Rom 4:17)


The Kingdom is Becoming Visible

Some clocks have no second hand—and the movement of time is barely perceptible. But remove the outside case of a mechanical watch or clock and you can see a buzz of action. Wheels and gears are moving and whirring.
And the invisible is made visible.

Get ready for the ‘inner workings’ of the kingdom of God to become increasingly visible to you—both by spiritual perception and evidence in the physical environment. [4]

His Kingdom is manifesting.
Your faith is being unleashed!

  • It’s time to see and perceive his Kingdom like never before.

As you step into the time zone of Heaven, make declarations and respond with faith, miracles are breaking out.

But more than that.

You are encountering your Father Who loves you.

  1. Greetings Helen.I needed to hear this.Spiritually i’ve been down,not praying for days because i’ve waited so long for gods promise to come to pass.Truly and honestly speaking i am tired and i felt like giving up.THANK YOU FOR THESE WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT.GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

    1. Hi Hilda, I’m praying for you right now, may you receive His fresh anointing, and be filled with renewed hope and strength <3

    2. Florence Johnson

      Good morning Helen:
      Heaven only knows the countless times I have thought wondered, yes sometimes believed God had forgotten about me.
      The dreams, visions, writing down what I believed he had given to me for my life’s purpose. Still nothing happened. Yet never stopped trusting believing in his promises to me. Your prophetic words many times have spoken to me pray for a refreshing in my spirit. A renewing of hope, that in Gods timing all will come to fruition. Thank you for your obedient servants heart.

      Florence, future published author…

      1. Hi Florence, may your writing bear much, much fruit and touch many! May you encounter His favor as you keep pressing forward. <3

  2. This is Powerful! I’ve been in a stagnant season for 18 months and I truly believe I am now in the Kingdom zone! Thank you for releasing God’s word. It is a confirmation.

    Blessings,

    Melissa

    1. Hi Melissa, yes! I pray the same sense of Divine intervention and Kingdom encounters we have been experiencing overflow onto you also

  3. Hi Helen, thank you so much for sharing this word. I also went on to read what you shared yesterday about magnetic prayer. I have been sensing this month the Lord would do something great, with prophetic words from others I trust in the body, lining up and resonating, as well as what the Holy Spirit has spoken to me and shown me (Zech. 10:1, Zeph 2:7, an immense downpour of rain for about 30-40mins two days ago which pointed me back to Zech. 10:1, and a fist client for the business I received a word late November 2018 to “go again, this time with more faith” earlier this week). It’s truly amazing. Thank you for sharing Helen, you have greatly encouraged me today. And thank you Hilda as well, my family has been in that same place, but God’s mighty hand is moving to make his promise appear as we partner with him now. Thank you again Helen, blessings to all! We serve an awesome and mighty God! Thank you Jesus!

    1. that’s so good Paapa I say yes and amen let it pour! And a supernatural business break out and provision being revealed as you lean into Him

  4. Hi Helen, thank you for word that you have shared and for allowing God to use you as His vessel, am really touched by it, thank you.

  5. Elizabeth Merritt

    1. You are definitely on the opposite end of the time zone to us Elizabeth! It’s cold and today is our winter solstice the shortest day of our year.
      I pray you are refreshed

      May this be your family’s testimony:
      ‘…beauty for ashes,
      The oil of joy for mourning,
      The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness (Is 61:1-3)

  7. Hi Helen i truely don, know what time zone i am in been waiting for so long to be exstablish in God Kingdom ,when i take a step go forth with what I hear God will is, I get enough bolbness to go forth and i get shut down and flustered.I don’t know how to push pass it .

    1. Hi Jessie, I’m praying for you right now. Keep pressing in, learning from each experience, and never give up.
      Can you share a general sense of what you believe the barrier is?

      1. I have promblem with leadership when God say go forth and then am push back because the leadership am under i get push back and put on chef.

  8. When I see your name in my email I get excited because I know God has usually sent you a confirming Word. He never disappoints. You hit so many bits and pieces of conversations I have had with the Father, it simply amazes me. I thank God for being connected to your ministry.
    God bless,
    Renee

  9. Wow Helen! How timely for my friend to send me this link this morning! We too have been in a holding pattern for several tough years but you’ve renewed my hope (confident expectation of good) that God is at work & our prayers & cries are actively in God’s ears!!
    Praying for a revival to break out in our cabin community & believing in the visions & words God has given me for this area & time!!
    Blessings on you for your message of hope!

  10. Such a timely word. I got hurt after burning out from serving, offense, and fighting for the promise God has for my life. Is 43:19 was my verse for this year. I often worry about the timing for seasons in my life. Right now, I’m getting ready to leave on a missions trip and encounter God again aside from religious serving and obligation. Thank you so much for all that you do.

    1. I wish I could share photos here. On 1.1.19 i shared a photo on FB with the caption “The Year of the Unexpected” with this very scripture and this is how I know we are in the vein of what the Holy Spirit is speaking in this hour. Pressure has to be present before the promise so that we may persevere. (I’m tweeting this…..yes Lord!!! Be encouraged. Your labor is not in vain. God sees and He knows. Don’t give up. God bless!
