It’s Now O’Clock: Step into Heaven’s Time Zone

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.

    Thank you Prophetess, the message is seriously in tune with my state rite now. I asked God what is the season I find myself in. Thoughts and ideas are coming but I find it difficult to download them. I feel strongly that my enemies are planning seriously against my ability to embark on the real reason why God brought me into this world. What breaks my heart is that they deguise
    themselves as if they love me but it’s not true. Please pray with to ask God to make things clearer to me. How do I start?where do i start from and where are my genuine helpers? Should I continue with the business am doing?

    Helen:
    I have been following you for quite sometime and God has used you so mightily to confirm His prophetic voice in my life. When i receive from Him, I set my word aside and I wait until I can ingest the whole of His voice. At times, I am so challenged to bring the word forth and still on another hand, I procrastinate. You always seem to come along and not having ever met you, it is amazing how real and full of His presence, your words fill my life. Thank you for always allowing God to use you in my life. Stepping into Heaven’s Time Zone is exactly truth to my life, however fear seems to grip my heart and my
    voice of declaration and decree. Please pray for me that I will rise up and come forth as He wishes.
    Thank you once again. Your ministry is amazing and full of His Majesties Grace.

    Hi Ellen, God bless you for this inspiration. The time zone here is 4:00am, Ghana. I have also felt weary in this waiting period. I thank God for these words of encouragement. I believe the Lord will direct my feet to see what his will is in this trying moments for myself and family. Hope to learn and share more messages from you as a vessel of the Lord.

    7:51am, EST in the USA. Woke up this am, and my alarm clock didn’t go off. First question I asked was “what time is it?” Moving into the plans God has for me, but so much is being thrown at me. Trials and temptations are bringing things to light, sometimes I just want to go back to that “safe” place, but know that is not God’s will. Please say a prayer that I will walk in humility and love and stop running in fear. Thank you, Helen!

    I love the time zone orphan idea! Our prayers are stored up and poured out at the right time. God doesn’t forget like we do.
    “For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.”
