“The hand of the LORD came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was full of bones.” (Ezekiel 37:1, NKJV)

Confetti, Your faith is going from glory to gloryThe Lord is releasing faith, for situations where the outlook has been bleak!

He is bringing healing, where there has been pain.
He is turning trials into gold.
He is transforming the environment.

You will hear Him say, “Speak My words, and look again!” and you will realize that here and there, change is taking place.
You will know that you are empowered.
His life is yours! His breath is yours.
His Word is yours.


The Day We Were Struck by Surprise

It was Pentecost Sunday, 2019—just over a year ago.
After our church service at Planetshakers, Malcolm and I were walking in the city, as we often do, by the Yarra River.
We were just about to return to our parked car.
Yet…the day was fine, the sky was blue, and there was a celebration up ahead, at Melbourne’s Exhibition Centre.
I felt pulled.
“Let’s go and have a look!”

And so, my husband and I were walking, arm in arm, amongst the happy crowd that day. As we went along, we chatted about the service, what God was doing in our family, and an event I’d attended in that centre, years before.
The common thread of our conversation was faith, and I observed, “Faith goes from glory to glory”.

As I spoke the words, “glory to glory”, my husband and I were struck together, from above and behind.
We hadn’t seen it coming.
It was a giant beach ball, that was being playfully bounced around the crowd.

It was a fun environment, and we laughed.
But I was also astounded.
For the huge ball that collided with us both at the same time, was made of clear plastic, and filled with multi-colored, foil confetti.


Confetti was Pouring Out from Heaven

“Then He caused me to pass by them all around, and behold, there were very many in the open valley; and indeed they were very dry.” (Ezekiel 37:2, NKJV)

I was amazed, because only two hours before, during the worship at our church, I’d been encountering the Lord in a vision. [1]
In my mind’s eye, I was standing in an isolated, barren landscape, by a lake.

Everywhere I looked, it was bleak, and plain, dark grey stones covered the ground.
But I was drawn to look upwards.

There, in the sky was what looked to be some kind of circular portal, with the appearance of a large, transparent plastic vent.
And through that opening, a warm wind of the Spirit began to blow from Heaven.

As the wind blew, clouds of multi-colored, foil confetti began pouring out, over the landscape around me.

And whenever a piece of colored confetti touched a grey stone, it was transformed into a precious stone—the same color as the confetti that touched it!
Soon, the ground was covered with precious jewels.
The landscape was being transformed!

But then, my focus was turned towards the vent from Heaven.
All I wanted, was to be immersed in the Spirit, the One who was coming through that vent.
And as I moved towards it, I was praying, “Lord, touch me! Transform me!”


A “Sign” Moment

What a great church service it had been, that day. When we left, there was so much to talk about!
And an hour later, we were still talking, when Malcolm and I were struck by that huge, clear plastic ball, filled with coloured foil confetti.

So, I told him of the vision, and the vent—the one that was circular, clear plastic in appearance, and the colored, foil confetti that flowed out.

There was no doubt to us both, that this was an unusual “sign moment”, on this Pentecost Sunday.
I noted it in my prophetic journal.

And this week, a year later, I felt the Holy Spirit bring it back to mind.
“Pay attention!”


Why Does the Holy Spirit Speak in Mysteries?

The Holy Spirit often speaks in mysteries—as anyone who has prophetic dreams will be familiar with!
And the meaning of His prophetic language and symbols is not always clear immediately. Why does He do this?

  • God is leading us on a journey of intimacy with Him
  • A sign will lead us to seek Him, as well as to study the Bible to discover its meaning
  • Mysteries are a part of the language of the Kingdom, and in the Gospels, Jesus spoke in many parables

In our recent journey, Malcolm and I have often encountered the Lord speaking through the environment.

This week, as I recall this particular encounter we had last year, I’m encouraged.
The environment around us—in our State of Victoria, in Australia—is going through one painful trial after the other.
And just when there seems to be no immediate way out, I hear Him say,

“Look up! This is the time for your faith to go from glory to glory.”


Power is Being Released Through Your Words

Being struck by the ball in that moment has reinforced my belief that God has a sense of humor!
It was also a reminder that my longing for the Holy Spirit has already been answered.
The moment was also a powerful sign for us both; one that continues to encourage us.

And that weekend, God did a deep work of healing in my life, delivering me from past pain.

Perhaps today, this word is for you also.
There is no valley of pain where God cannot reach you, or others through you!
And there is no situation too dark, that his glory cannot visit.

“I will give her vineyards from there, and the Valley of Achor [trouble] as a door of hope…” (Hosea 2:15a, NKJV)
Hear God say today, “In the very place of trouble or failure, I am opening a door for you!”


Words from Heaven

Messages are being released from Heaven!
And as you speak what your Father is speaking, something is happening.

  • Power is being released to transform your environment

All around you, testimonies will be shared, and these will light up the land.

“Confetti” speaks of celebration.
For in the face of everything contrary, He is turning our mourning into dancing.

“He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD!
Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live.”
(Ezekiel 37:4-5, NKJV)

[1] How I receive visions:
When I describe a vision I’ve seen, it’s usually a vivid impression in my mind’s eye, accompanied by a strong sense of God’s Presence. I’m not speaking of an “open” (physical) vision. I believe all prophetic words, encounters and visions should be compatible with Scripture and need to be weighed up.

  2. This is so timely, thanks for sharing

    I know this may not have anything to do with the topic but my aunt who is an Intercessor and very spiritual Believer of Jesus Christ has told me on more than 2 occassions (yesterday bring 1 of them) that she sees a bright blue light hovering over my head. I get chills everytime! Just curious

    Has God ever dealt with you about this?

    Blessings

    1. Hi Whitney, there have been occasions when I’ve heard someone who is moved by the Holy Spirit say they have seen something ‘over’ someone. My thoughts are that when this is of the Lord, it can refer to seeing something that is in the atmosphere around a person, or a characteristic of the anointing upon their lives. For example, blue is symbolic of revelation and prophetic insight and heavenly. There are times in Old and New Testament when the Holy Spirit was seen “over” people, e.g. pillar of cloud and fire in the Old Testament, and in the NT, the tongues of fire.

  5. Catharina April

    Hallo helen please pray for me that God will open a door to leave this place i currently find myself at. I discovered that i have been blessed by the holy spirit with the gift of prophetic dreaming and many things in addition to that but this environment is not spiritually suitable for me to grow. The Lord’s has also revealed things abouf this place to confirm it. But here is my problem financially i am not able to go anywhere and even though i have asked God still has not revealed where i can go.

  6. Hi Helen,
    Would it be at all possible to private message or email you about this? I saw a picture several weeks ago that was almost exactly the same as this. I don’t quite know what to make of it and I’d be really grateful for your insights.
    Thank you,
    Emma
