Prophetic Word – A Season Of Thanksgiving

Dear Revival-Fire Church Family,

As many of us celebrated the US holiday of “Thanksgiving”, the Lord began to speak to me about the season we are now entering. To many this time (Thanksgiving day) is merely a time of good food, family & entertainment, as people lounge around eating rich foods & possibly watch ball games, etc…but to us of the household of faith, this time is a reminder of what has done & is doing in our hearts & lives. Please let His words penetrate & impact your lives, as He desires to move us into this new season:


“Hear Me, My people & know My heart…for the hour that you live is a special time…a time of unknown grace…a time of unmerited favor, as you will listen to Me & seek My face. For I have brought you all to Me for such a time as this, that I may reveal to you this secret that you all will need in the time ahead. For I love you with an everlasting love & it is My will for you to prosper & be in health, even as your soul prospers. This is part of the key that is ahead for you as you take My words this day & run with them. Today is the day for you to come closer to Me than you ever have thought possible…rejoice in Me this day, as you walk forward & truly know that My plans for you are to give you a future & a hope.

For many of you are stuck, basically standing still…looking back at your past failures & disappointments. Many cannot look ahead because they are convinced that the same thing will happen again…but some will attempt to walk forward, but continue to look behind them as they go. Can you imagine what will happen to those who will walk forward in this way? For it is impossible to see ahead, while looking at what is behind! I told you to forget those things that are behind & to reach forth unto those things that are before you…you cannot look behind & see anything ahead! It is time for you to let go of the offenses, failures, disappointment & regrets of the past & begin to again have faith in Me & My word.

I know many of you truly desire to do this, but do not know what to do to break free from these old past patterns. But be of good cheer, for it is My desire for you to walk in newness of life! Many of you have just celebrated a time of “Thanksgiving” & on some level have touched the very area that will help you. In order to break free, you must begin to be thankful for such things as you have. You cannot stay focused on what is behind, while you are thankful for such things as you have today. Stop majoring on what you do NOT have & instead choose to be thankful for what you DO have. I want you all to really be free & as you will sincerely begin to do this, it will start the process of making you truly free in Me.

For does not My word say you are to enter My gates with thanksgiving in your hearts & into My courts with praise? You are to be thankful unto Me & bless My name. Many times in My word you will read you are to offer up the sacrifice of thanksgiving, but many have missed this key, by being fixated on their failures, disappointments & regrets of the past. I want you to walk in the freedom that was purchased for you by the sacrifice of My Son. Let go of those things that hold you back & reach forward for what I have prepared for you. It is imperative that you do this, for as you do, you will set the stage for what is ahead in your lives. So begin to look at what you have to be thankful for & concentrate on them.

For as you will do this, you will release My power to bring change to the way things have been & move you forward in your walk with Me. For as you sow thankfulness to Me you will release yourselves from those things that have held you back. I know that you may not feel like being thankful & I do understand this…that is why I said to offer up sacrifices of thanksgiving…for making a true sacrifice is never an easy thing to do! But, as you will be obedient to do this, you will in due season reap good things…for you will see your heart change & soon your thanksgiving will no longer be a sacrifice, but it will bring forth an intense blessing within your heart as you begin to see things from My true perspective.

For true thankfulness is a key that will unlock many doors in your lives…the lack of this has keep many of My people from experiencing My best for their lives. It has never been My desire for My people to live this way, but they have chosen this way to go…they alone have made the decision to do so. But the reason for much of this is because so many of My people have listened to other voices. These voices can be from others, but mostly come from the many “arguments” within their own minds, convincing them that ” nothing will ever change, so why bother to try anymore”. My people…all these voices must be resisted at all costs…for I have told you that you are MORE than conquerors in Christ!

I instructed My servant Paul, the apostle to write: “Now thanks be unto God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ & makes manifest the savor of His knowledge by us in every place”. Do you not see it? It starts with NOW THANKS! I need you to see this, My people…thankfulness is a NOW thing…it is not just mere words…it must begin in the heart. For when the heart is truly thankful, there is nothing that the enemy can do to affect or change you. Now look at this: “And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful”. When you are truly thankful, you life will be ruled by My peace…this will change the way you see all things happening in your life.

This is because your focus is not on anything but what comes from Me…this is the power of a thankful heart. So let go of the things of the past that hold you back & begin to be thankful for what things that you have. Every one of you can do this…instead of fixating on what you do not have…begin to be thankful for what you do have. This will change everything around you & in you…for your focus will not be one of failure or regret…but one that sees My blessings everywhere in their lives. This will change you inside & out & you will never be the same again! Hear Me, My people…I truly desire for you to be free in Me! Please take to heart what I have said & you will not be disappointed, says the Lord.”


Dear family of God, the words the Lord has spoken are SO important for our lives in the time ahead…with so much going on around us & things changing everywhere…we must keep our hearts in a place that we will not be moved. If we continue to look behind us, we will be held by the things of the past & we will not be able to stand fast in the victory in which Christ has made us free, but will continue to be held captive by a yoke of bondage.

But, as we will begin to see things as the Lord has revealed them to us, we can effect change…by exercising true thanksgiving in our hearts. As we do will this, we will never be the same…for as the Lord has said…the enemy will no longer be able to affect us! True thanksgiving will enable the Lord to work within our lives & to bring the changes that He wants us to see…it all starts with a genuine & sincerely grateful heart!

In His great love & mercy,
