"The Fullness of a New Season and a New Level of Apostolic Grace"

My Dream: A New Level of Apostolic Grace
When I tune into the news, I have never been more concerned about where we are as a nation. When I tune into the Holy Spirit, however, I have never been more encouraged! In fact, I am more hopeful for righteous change today than I have been in the past 25 years! This past November, the Lord gave me one of the most vivid dreams I've ever received. Based on what Holy Spirit spoke to me, I am thoroughly convinced that we are now crossing over into the fullness of a new season.
In this dream, I was speaking to an apostolic friend when I began to hear and repeat to him a word from the Lord. In a very slow and calculated manner, making sure to speak precisely what I was hearing the Lord say, I spoke these words:
"There is a new level of apostolic grace being distributed that will take the gifting to a new measure spiritually and physically."
Both in the dream and upon waking, my attention was especially drawn to the last two words of this statement, "...and physically."
I believe the Lord is saying through this dream, that we are about to see the Kingdom of God come to earth in a more tangible way. The Church is about to see a physical manifestation of that which we have warred for in the spirit, and a fulfillment of things promised in times past. And we'll see results from our prayers much more quickly; rather than believing change will result in the future, we will see quick, tangible evidence of transformation. More than just believing for souls to be saved, we will experience multitudes coming to Christ. Spiritual gifts will not only be asked for, but we will see signs, wonders and miracles as a manifestation of the gifts. (Photo of Dutch Sheets with Chuck Pierce)
This new level of apostolic grace will translate apostolic authority into apostolic power and action Kingdom works that will bring real, physical, literal change in the earth. Acts 4:33 speaks of an abundant grace that was upon the early apostles as they witnessed of Jesus, and great signs, wonders and power were being released through them.
There is also a window of divine grace being offered to the apostolic Church today—the greatest window of opportunity we have seen in our lifetimes—for extending Kingdom authority and life into the earth. We are coming into a full release of divine strategies and the power necessary for a thriving implementation of those heavenly blueprints.
Many leaders in the Church think we have been walking in the fullness of our anointing and what our spiritual calling represents. I believe, however, that we have actually been primarily in preparation for this fullness.
The past several years were a season in which the Lord was refining our gifts and preparing us for this new dimension of grace. He has worked in our hearts, released much revelation, and created many important connections.He is now inviting us to step into the fullness of what this preparation was meant to produce. What He's been working in us, He now wants to release through us.
The Window of Opportunity
When God says He is releasing grace, it is important to understand that grace does not mean only undeserved favor. Grace is also the release of supernatural ability, an ability to do exceedingly abundantly more than we can ask, think or imagine (see Ephesians 3:20).
In 2 Corinthians 9:8, the Apostle Paul says, "And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed." This is the kind of grace the Lord is releasing over us in this season! A grace that produces "all sufficiency"; an abundance!
As we move into this season, the next six months are very significant, so much so that the decisions we make will in some ways define the rest of our lives. In this kairos season, it is important that we position ourselves rightly for this outpouring of grace, seeking God very diligently. If we do so, there will be a remantling, redefining and revitalizing, propelling us into our future.
We stand at a hinge of history!
The window of opportunity is open, and there is an abounding grace available. The Lord is inviting us to come into agreement with this decree He is releasing. For those who do, there will be evidence of His power in ways we've never experienced. Believe it, tap into it, and join the apostolic company God is raising up throughout the earth!

Out of Hiding

By Christina Garcia on Feburary 10, 2015

The Lord showed me a vision of many people around the 
world crying out in a dark well (hole). All week God 
continued to speak to me through the message of Joseph 
and all the affliction he went through.
Joseph’s betrayal by his brothers made him a slave.
Genesis 37:5 ; 11
One night Joseph had a dream, and when he told his
brothers it, they hated him more than ever. Joseph’s
brothers envied him and were jealous of him, but his
father observed the saying and pondered over it.
Are you feeling rejected and abandoned by those close 
to you?
Have you been disappointed by man?
Do you feel as your hidden in a dark place and God is 
far from you?
I want to encourage you today that God is closer than
ever!The power of rejection and abandonment makes us
believe so many lies. The goal is to make us feel
unwanted,invaluable,shamed, bitter, worthless, and more.
You might even entertain the lie that God has forgotten
about you and has no clue where you are. Lies, lies,and
more lies.
The Lord sees you and nothing is hidden from His 
Hebrews 4:13
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything
is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one
to whom we are accountable.
Jealousy and accusation are at work against God’s
chosen.Those close to you are not sharing enthusiasm
in all the Lord is bringing you to. Joseph went from a
dark empty well to slavery. I don’t know your situation
but God does and He says to remind you how much
you’re loved. The difficult experiences you’re going
through are only made to prepare you for your life’s
Nothing will be wasted during these seasons of your
life.  Every hardship is a tool for God to make you
stronger.  Many have spoken wrongly of you and the
only job you have is to forgive and move on.  Many
do not speak peaceably because of their own hurts
and envy.
James 3:16
For wherever there is jealousy (envy) and contention
(rivalry and selfish ambition), there will also be
confusion (unrest, disharmony,rebellion) and all sorts
of evil and vile practices.
Sometimes if we don’t remove ourselves from this
atmosphere the Lord will.
We pray to be in God’s perfect will and it may not be
what we imagined but this is where we must place faith
in front of fear. Be it onto me father as it is done in your
We cannot be jealous over the dreams God has planned
before the foundation of this world for each of us. No man
can change the promises and hand of God. Destiny over
your life triumphs all the works of darkness.  Remember
greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.
It does not matter if you’re in prison, divorced, isolated,
slave, etc. God is still greater and bigger!
God is going to cause you to be FRUITFUL even in
your affliction.  What you have lost will be restored.
Remain FAITHFUL and wait on God to lift you up
due time.Joseph found favor with the warden when
he was sent to prison for being wrongly accused and
favor with Pharaoh. Don’t sleep with the enemy.
Run away from the temptation to sin during these
pressured times. There is no temptation that will be
difficult to bare because the Lord will always
give you a way of escape.
Genesis 41:40-41
You shall have charge over my house, and all my
people shall be governed according to your word
[with reverence, submission, and obedience].
Only in matters of the throne will I be greater than
you are. Then Pharaoh said to Joseph,  See,
I have set you over all the land of Egypt.
Just as the Lord was with Joseph so He will be
there for you.The Lord will cause whatever you
do to prosper.
FORGIVENESS is key to unlock your destiny
Forgiveness will bring restoration and retaliation
will bring destruction.
We must forgive to be free and move forward into
all that God has set forth.It’s only by the power of
the Holy Spirit that we can choose to forgive.
He desires for us to learn to be faithful even in the
midst of betrayal. This spirit comes against us to
remove the favor of God.
God made him forget all his toil and hardship.
We are not to dwell and harp on a matter once we
have chosen to forgive and that includes
Proverbs 17:9
He who covers and forgives an offense seeks love,
but he who repeats or harps on a matter separates
even close friends.
If you were thrown into a well by your loved ones 
and sold into slavery what do you  think your 
response would be towards them? Ask the Holy
Spirit to show you what is in your heart now and
who you need to forgive to be free! The way
Joseph responded after reuniting with His brothers
brought me so much joy. Father let us have a
forgiving and good attitude as Joseph did.
Genesis 45:4-5
Then Joseph said to his brothers, “Come close to
me.”When they had done so, he said, “I am your
brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt!
And now, do not be distressed and do not be angry
with yourselves for selling me here, because it was
to save lives that God sent me ahead of you.
Let your gifts rise even when you’re in captivity even
when you don’t feel you’re best even if you feel lost
remain stand and be faithful with a good attitude.
HIDING.  Divine favorable connections are coming
fourth in places you least expect.  Strategized
connections and directions are manifesting. Your
inheritance will be restored.Your family
will be reconciled. There is a nation He has called you to
save for His Glory. A Mantle of favor is being released
from the heavens.  Favor and double portion coming to
you now. The Lord is maturing  patience, faith, endurance,
love,and long suffering. The Lord is positioning you now.
You are birthing a new beginning with a fresh start.
God will give you provision in your journey into the
new territory He is calling you upward to.  Never stop
dreaming no matter where you are. Your identity remains
secure and you are not your circumstance. You are
enough. The Lord remains perfect in your weakness.
Even  Jesus left this life with scars of the world and
so will you. Your Hope is abounding in Christ Jesus.
Let Go and let God.  The Lord is rerouting you now! 
Shine bright,
Christina Garcia
