‘For My son and My daughter, be ready to sing a new song. For I am releasing a new sound and a new song to My Bride. For in this last season, there has been a tiredness, a weariness, and a heaviness. For what I have promised has not yet come, and the delay has caused many hearts to grow weary and heavy-laden. But this is the hour of release. I am releasing My refreshing oil from Heaven. I am releasing My creativity and innovation that will set you on a new course, a new way.
You say, ‘I’ve lost time, I’ve not made any headway.’ But I am saying to you, My beloved children, you have lost no time in this delay. For I have been working deep, I have been digging trenches that others can’t see. Know that it’s from these trenches that battles are won. It’s from these depths that nations are made strong. For I am releasing and establishing ‘The New’.
My Kingdom will be built in this hour. It will be built by My Spirit. I am releasing My Thoughts, My Creativity, My Innovation to My creation. For We will build strong. We will build that which has been broken down, left in ruins until now. Put your hands to the plough and be ready to run. For this hour is marked by My New Ways of seeing and doing. I am lifting up the nations that have been trodden down by the systems of old – establishments, once strong.
For there will be an exchange in this hour. Those who have been strong, will become weak. Those who have been weak, strong. For My Spirit is moving across the earth, answering the prayers of the humble ones.
Flee not to fortified cities, once strong. Stay with the humble ones. Wait and see what I will do. Hear from Heaven, My manifold ideas of new.
For I am stirring, I am shifting. The song you have not yet sung, will be released upon your tongue. New words and melodies will burst from within, as My Spirit releases My Sound at this time.’
The Year of the LORD’s Favor
1The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor;a
he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;b
2to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor,
and the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all who mourn;
3to grant to those who mourn in Zion—
to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness instead of mourning,
the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit;
that they may be called oaks of righteousness,
the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.c
4They shall build up the ancient ruins;
they shall raise up the former devastations;
they shall repair the ruined cities,
the devastations of many generations.
5Strangers shall stand and tend your flocks;
foreigners shall be your plowmen and vinedressers;
6but you shall be called the priests of the LORD;
they shall speak of you as the ministers of our God;
you shall eat the wealth of the nations,
and in their glory you shall boast.
7Instead of your shame there shall be a double portion;
instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their lot;
therefore in their land they shall possess a double portion;
they shall have everlasting joy.
8For I the LORD love justice;
I hate robbery and wrong;d
I will faithfully give them their recompense,
and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
9Their offspring shall be known among the nations,
and their descendants in the midst of the peoples;
all who see them shall acknowledge them,
that they are an offspring the LORD has blessed.
10I will greatly rejoice in the LORD;
my soul shall exult in my God,
for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation;
he has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom decks himself like a priest with a beautiful headdress,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11For as the earth brings forth its sprouts,
and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up,
so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise
to sprout up before all the nations.
