One Blue Horse says: I am so excited about this word, more than any I’ve heard, I feel what he is prophesying – can you?

While recently attending a prophetic roundtable in Washington, DC a word from the Lord concerning this year rang loud in my spirit: “We are in an Ezekiel 37 Moment in Time.” This movement is rising up from the ground. In this year of 2017, the year of breakthrough, prepare yourself for a ride like no other into the awesome plans and purposes of God. There are several things Holy Spirit began to share about this season and the seasons ahead. Let’s look at Ezekiel 37:1-14 through a prophetic lens, as it pertains to this year ahead and this transitional time in the world.
A New Release Amongst Prophetic Voices
The hand of the Lord was upon me, and He brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me down in the middle of the valley; and it was full of bones. He caused me to pass among them round about, and behold, there were very many on the surface of the valley; and lo, they were very dry. Ezekiel 37:1-2
God is raising up prophetic voices in the earth who have been marked by the presence and fueled from a new realm of the Lord’s glory. In this hour God is laying His hand upon His servants, in a fresh and new way, and sending prophetic voices into various regions in our nation and in the nations of the earth to release the accomplishing word of the Lord.
I saw the Lord handpicking people who were willing to be caught up into the prophetic swirl of His plans and are strategically being set in key regions and territories for His Kingdom purposes. Some of the places God will send you may look unfruitful or insignificant. Perhaps some of the regions you’re being sent to may even appear to be like the valley of dry bones, but the Lord says, “It’s time to go and prophesy!”
Releasing the Accomplishing Word
He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” And I answered, “O Lord God, You know.” Again He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.’ Thus says the Lord God to these bones, ‘Behold, I will cause breath to enter you that you may come to life. I will put sinews on you, make flesh grow back on you, cover you with skin and put breath in you that you may come alive; and you will know that I am the Lord.‘” Ezekiel 37:3-6
God is placing His accomplishing word in the mouths of His sons and daughters like never before. This is an hour where the accomplishing word of the Lord will not only go forth but it will be coupled with greater manifestation accompanied with the breath and wind of the Spirit. An hour of results and fulfillment is breaking open before us.
Friends, as you prophesy and release the word of the Lord in these seasons, Heaven is backing you. Yes it is a time in which the Pneuma (breath of the God) will be released and things will manifest bringing forth breakthrough, healings, signs, wonders, and creative miracles in ways you’ve not seen before. The winds are being stirred even now!
There is a Sound Rising Up in the Valley
So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold, a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to its bone. And I looked, and behold, sinews were on them, and flesh grew and skin covered them; but there was no breath in them. Then He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life.“‘” Ezekiel 37:7-9
As I was before the Lord I heard Him say, “There is a sound being born in the valley. Yes, a new sound is coming forth out of key regions in this nation and throughout the nations of the earth. There is a sound coming forth even out of obscure places. Places where people were least likely to expect a move of God to break out…cities transformed, loved ones saved from addictions and lifestyles. Mainline denominations and churches becoming consumed by glory outpourings and awakening.
“Let the four winds blow: ‘Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life.'”
This sound rising up is not just mere noise; it’s a resonating sound, one with deep impact. I began to hear the sound of things rattling together. The Lord began to say, “There is a rattling and coming together in the earth.”
I began to see and hear the sounds of many things rattling and coming together within the Body of Christ. Unified movements and reconciliation springing forth with pastors, leaders and churches. Differences being squashed in love and honor.
Dreams are rattling together in this hour. Things that you thought were dead, missed opportunities, prophetic words, delayed moments and visions are being rattled back to life! Can’t you hear and feel the sound?
A new sound is rising in every sphere of society—especially Arts and Entertainment. A Creative Revival is breaking loose upon artisans and creatives, upon singers and musicians. Let there be a rattling together!
Businesses Are Rattling
A time of increase, growth and redevelopment is coming forth amongst struggling businesses and companies. The Lord says this a year of, “Start up’s and turn-key opportunities for new businesses, visionaries, churches, etc. Acquisition of properties and land are rattling together for My glory.”
Governments and Nations Rattling Together
The Lord is highlighting America and places such as England, Australia and South America for governmental shifts. A fresh and new change is coming upon the governmental gates and nations of the world. The glory of the Lord is being revealed in greater measures to bring forth righteousness, truth and justice. One nation under the government of our sovereign God and King.
This is a Season of Establishing and Reformation
So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they came to life and stood on their feet, an exceedingly great army. Ezekiel 37:10
As we step into the days and season ahead the Lord began to highlight “…and they stood on their feet” found in verse 10. This is the season the Body of Christ is regaining her posture and position back. A realignment of footing is being established in the Church. God is securing the grip of His people to stand strong and become a mighty army. No longer will the Church take a backseat. No longer will the Church be silent. Her voice is being restored!
We are coming upon the 500th anniversary of the reformation and the Lord says, “I’m going to raise up a revolutionary army of modern Martin Luthers, those who will be reformers, and carry out the dream of My heart in the earth.”
Let the reformers arise. God is releasing fresh grace and momentum to the Body of Christ as we partner with Him.
Coming Out of the Old and Into the New
Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel; behold, they say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope has perished. We are completely cut off.’ Therefore prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I will open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves, My people; and I will bring you into the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves and caused you to come up out of your graves, My people. I will put My Spirit within you and you will come to life, and I will place you on your own land. Then you will know that I, the Lord, have spoken and done it,” declares the Lord.“‘” Ezekiel 37:11-14
Now, more than ever, God is shifting His Bride out of the old and into the new. The Lord says, “New wine for the new wineskin. I am changing everything about you. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken. Things are shifting in you, around you and for you! Set your expectation high in Me. Yes, there’s a shift in your outlook and perception about Me and the world around you. I am doing away with the old religious structure and ideologies of men. What I am doing now in your midst will reveal Me and it will bear My glory. This new wineskin will reveal My nature, beauty and majesty. Get ready for the new. Expect it, embrace it, step into it. It’s time to come alive.”
“Behold, I will do a new thing; now shall it spring forth...” (Isaiah 43:19). The hour of the Ezekiel 37 movement is here.
