Deut 2:1-3 Then we turned, and took our journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea, as the LORD spake unto me: and we compassed mount Seir many days. 2 And the LORD spake unto me, saying,
3 Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward.
Youíve compassed this mountain long enough turn you northward.
I came to this house with a word in my spirit (change).
God said this is a season of change, major change.
He said prophesy and tell my people change is coming, major shifts are going to be taking place.
God said: to prophesy change so his people could participate and cooperate with him in the process.
*You cannot stop change from happening around you, but you can either adjust to change or resist it*.
The word of the Lord said: youíve been in this place long enough.
In other words youíve been in this life-cycle this life situation long enough.
It may be your financial situation, or your relationships, it may be in your emotional arena of your life.
It may be a physical situation of struggle with your health.
It may be your spiritual life, your walk with God, your experience with God, (your ministry).
God said: itís time for a change.
Is anybody ready for a change?
Is anybody sick and tired of being sick and tired?
Is anybody fed up with your present situation?
Is anybody ready to break that cycle of debt?
Ready to break that cycle of sickness? To break that cycle of depression?
Am I talking to anybody whoís tired of going around and around the same old problems every day?.
God said youíve compassed this mountain long enough.
Tell your neighbor: enough is enough.
Now tell the devil: Iíve had enough.
Iíve had enough hell in my life, Iíve had enough fear and confusion, Iíve had enough discouragement, Iíve had enough lack, Iíve had enough disappointment, Iíve had enough rejection and betrayal, Iíve had enough misery, Iíve had enough shame.
Somebody shout Iím ready for a change; Iím ready for a turnaround, (is anybody ready for a turnaround?).
I donít know who Iím talking to but somebody needs a turnaround and you need it today, you need it right now.
Somebodyís facing a situation that is impossible for you to change itís out of your hands, somebodyís in a legal situation and you need God to move and turn that thing around.
Somebody else you need a miracle in your finances, youíve done everything you know how to do but instead of getting better it looks worse.
Someone else youíre standing in the gap for your children, and you know that if God donít move theyíre in trouble.
But I came to prophesy to you in this house that we serve the God of turnarounds, this Bible is a book of turnarounds, from Genesis to Revelations we see God turning things around.
One of the worst-case scenarios in the Bible is in the book of Ezekiel chapter 37 the Valley of dry bones.
It looked hopeless, impossible, beyond the point of no return.
But when the man of God started prophesying to those bones something started happening, (change,) things started changing.
The situation started turning around.
Bones started coming together, and they didnít just come together but every bone found its matching bone.
When the prophet finished prophesying, in the very same place where there was nothing but dry bones there stood a mighty army fully equipped and fully empowered to fight.
