I love to read prophetic words--especially encouraging ones and this one from Doug Addison is just that.
2015 Prophetic Word: Year of the Open Door
We have radically shifted with the theme for 2015, which is a new door of opportunity is being opened for us. In fact, I am declaring 2015 the Year of the Open Door.
“After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” Revelation 4:1 NIV
In 2015 there will be many new open doors, but we will need to “come up here” to see them. We will need to rise above our situations and gain a higher perspective of God.
Sign of the dolphins
On Valentine’s weekend in February 2013, I was speaking at the Power and Love Prophetic Conference at Bethel Church in Redding, California. As I was landing in Redding, God spoke to me that there was going to be a major prophetic sign from Heaven on Saturday, February 16th.
Sure enough, on that day a massive seven-mile stretch of over 100,000 dolphins gathered off the coast of Southern California. Previously there had been thousands, but on that weekend it was estimated to be over 100,000 dolphins. It was a sight and could not be explained scientifically. Here’s a link to one of the many news stories about this phenomenon:
This was a prophetic sign of a gathering coming to Southern California. An army of prophetic encouragers will soon emerge, both young and old.Water represents the spirit and dolphins are encouragers. Many people said that the dolphins had gathered for the food in the area. In the same way, God is preparing a great banquet or a party that is coming to Southern California that will impact the entire world.
I consider myself a spiritual dolphin, so to speak. God has given me the ability to see the negative things of the enemy and “flip” them into God’s positive will. I compare my gifts to the dolphin Flipper. I teach people how to overcome the attacks of the enemy and to “flip it and flip it good.”
Seven years of blessings
Starting in January 2015 God will be holding back the negative things that many people have seen coming to the West Coast of the US. We are entering into a seven-year time of mercy and blessings from 2015–2022. Again, this does not mean that we will not see disasters or have difficult times, but God’s mercy is going to triumph over judgment.
This is the time for the West Coast to rise and shine from San Diego to Seattle (and into Vancouver, B.C.).
"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.” Isaiah 60:1
It truly is a year of breakthrough for us all and God has issued a new seven-year season of blessing from 2015–2022. For the most part, it is the result of the prophetic intercessors crying out for mercy and more time, and it is possible that if we respond appropriately that it could be held back even longer.
In place of prophetic words of judgment, for the next seven years God is releasing the fulfillment of prophetic words that are based in revival and blessing.
We are going to see the fulfillment many of the prophetic promises we have been hearing for years: Bob Jones’ one billion harvest of youth; Arthur Burt’s prophetic word “and there shall be no ebb”; Paul Cain’s nameless, faceless generation will arise; my prophecy from November 2012 of a revival that will come to the spiritual outcasts; the stadium prophecies; and lots more.
This is the start of a seven-year reversal while time has been extended to make room for a huge harvest. You will see many of your personal promises fulfilled over the next seven years as well.
This is not just the West Coast
This is not just for the West Coast but for us all. God spoke to me that there has been injustice in the land. People have judged and not loved. Therefore He is moving on behalf of those who have been wounded. We are going to see a major move of God begin shortly and go on through 2022.
Outside of our understanding
Just as the dolphins gathered in Southern California in February 2013, and Bob Jones the encouraging prophet went back to heaven in February 2014, starting in February 2015 there will be a major shift on the earth and in the Heavens.
We are transitioning into a new, radical, and major movement of God. Revival is coming but it is going to be outside the camp of our current understanding and our ways of doing things.
I remember Bob Jones telling me, “Bars are about to become churches and churches will need to be hospitals.” There are so many people who have been wounded by Christianity. This is why God is releasing a new movement of encouragement that will open people up to God’s love like never before.
The parable of the great banquet
The gathering of the dolphins was a prophetic sign that God is preparing for a huge banquet or party. The Parable of the Great Banquet is a prophetic word for now. In Luke 14:15–24, Jesus told a parable of the Great Banquet in which a man was putting on a big feast and invited everyone to come. But they all made excuses and were too busy. So the man sent his servants out to invite the outcasts.
At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’ Matthew 14:17
Because the ones who were invited got busy and did not come, the Master had to invite other people.
‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’Matthew 14:21
This is a prophetic word from God right now: “Come, for everything is ready.” God has prepared a table before us and we are being given an invitation to be part of something big that God has been planning. This represents the spiritual outcasts that God is drawing in now.
This next move of God is similar to this parable. Many have been invited to be part of it but have gotten caught up in other things.
God’s heart is for ALL people to come into the banquet. He is going to let the spiritually poor, crippled, blind, and lame be part of it. The spiritual homeless are being invited to the party. God spoke to me that we need to understand this parable and not be too busy or get distracted or we will miss the invitation at hand.
Don’t get busy or distracted this year. God’s agenda is to love people and bring healing. It is also the start of the Joseph anointing that is to be released. There will be strategies from Heaven to release finances for Kingdom projects.
God is moving on the spiritual outcast and the wounded
This includes the prodigal sons and daughters, pastors’ kids, those who grew up going to church and many who did not go to church at all.
These are the ones who are into strange things and unusual lifestyles that you might not agree with. Does this sound familiar? Many of these are our own children and grandchildren. God has been saving them for a new movement that they are called to be part of.
East Coast and West Coast connection
The West Coast has birthed three revivals in recent history: The Azusa Street revival in 1906, the Jesus People movement in the 1970s, and The Third Wave charismatic movement with John Wimber, Peter Wagner and others.
We will see something start on the West Coast but it is not limited to that. I saw:
A new Chicago fire in the spirit ready to start
God’s glory come as spiritual rain in a casino on the New Jersey shore
The Holy Spirit bringing a move in Orlando
God visiting Toronto once again
Moves of God happening in the First Nations people
Pentecostal fire coming to the African American churches
God moving and promoting women with great authority
God will begin to move in our schools, among the Muslims, and minorities.
A major move of God in South America that centered around Chile and other hot spots
I could go on … it is not a West Coast thing that God is doing. It is going to spread around the world.
A 10-day countdown to breakthrough
Since February 2015 is the start of a major shift, I heard that we need a 10-day countdown starting on January 22 through February 1. It is a time to gather together and pray for the February breakthrough that is coming to you.
Spring forward on March 8
God spoke to me that again this year, when we set the clocks forward in the spring that things are going to spring forward in the spirit. For the US, this is March 8. Watch for something significant to happen around this day and season.
Many people will begin to emerge out of hibernation at this time. Some have been hidden and others held back by the enemy. But they will begin to step forward and say “Yes, Lord” to what God is calling them to do.
Just as the date April 1st is 4/1, this is the start of the new open doors that are mentioned in Revelation 4:1. This is a verse that you need to print out and stick on your refrigerator. These open doors and the release of higher-level revelation will require that you to rise above your situation and circumstances.
The month of May
God is going to begin to accelerate things. Just as May is the 5th month, so it will be a time of a supernatural release of grace. The spirit and ministry of reconciliation will be released and relationships will be restored. This will happen even with your own relationship as God is revealing Himself as a Father to you. There will be a deep mending of hidden hopelessness and building of a greater trust in you.
In June there will be another major shift
There will be another major spiritual shift in June and “June gloom” will lift and the fog of forgetfulness will be removed. God will begin to bring to your memory promises you have forgotten. This will set the pace for the rest of the year. And watch for things to “fall into place” in the fall.
“ … Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”Matthew 6:10
Finding new fruit in your family tree
Your generational gifting and calling will become clearer this year. God is revealing positive, hidden blessings and callings in your family tree. You will no longer be worried about generational curses, because generational blessings will come to the forefront.
While people have read the genealogies in the Bible and have not fully understood them, your genealogy is going to come alive and make more sense this year.
Spirit of Elijah is going to come
This next move of God will require reconciliation.
“And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous—to make ready a people prepared for the Lord." Luke 1:17
We cannot expect to see anyone turn to God without first humbling ourselves as parents and spiritual parents toward our children.
This is portrayed well in a movie with Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton calledAnd So It Goes. This movie is a prophetic parable about the need to turn the hearts of the parents to the children so that transformation may take place. God is using children to bring about amazing transformation.
God is truly moving and we are in for some amazing times ahead. We can prepare now by slowing down and listening to the Holy Spirit speak to us.
