Dutch Sheets: "Get Ready for SEPTEMBER - A SEASON of SUDDENLIES"
By Dutch Sheets
Aug 13, 2008
ready for September! It is so huge on God's timetable that it will mark
one of the greatest shifts in the spiritual realm that our generation
has ever seen:
• A season of suddenlies will begin.
• The confusion and deception ruling America (including within the Church) will begin to lift.
• The November elections will shift toward God's will.
• The coming "great awakening" to America will go to a new level.
• The "presence movement" will begin.
A Season of Suddenlies
I have heard of divine "suddenlies" all of my life and have no doubt experienced a few. However, I have never been in what I would call "a season of suddenlies."
I'm in one now! And this new season is about to break forth in a
significant way for those who have allowed God to prepare them for it.
was already releasing this word when Chuck Pierce prophesied to me two
weeks ago, "You will stand on the steps facing 'The Mall' (in
Washington, D.C.) in September and decree: 'Suddenlies are coming!' Be prepared for I will begin to jar and to rearrange what needs to be rearranged."
This season will usher in many changes - get ready!
Confusion and Deception Broken
level of confusion and deception I have seen over America in the last
two years both in the Church and without has been unlike anything I
have ever witnessed. The level of it, especially in the Body of Christ,
has truly been shocking to me. The list of areas in which it has
manifested is broad: presidential candidate endorsements and
prophecies, doctrinal error, relational breakups, disagreements over
what is true and false revival, etc.
Add to this list a
general weariness, complacency (one well-known leader told me he
doesn't think it matters anymore who is elected president - so much for
shifting the Supreme Court!), disillusionment, disorientation, etc. -
and it all adds up to incredible confusion and deception. I believe it
is all linked to our war in Iraq, which is ancient Babylon. Babylon
means "confusion." It was not difficult for us to defeat Iraq's
physical army, but the principality - the spirit of Babylon - has been
another story altogether.
Just a couple of weeks ago,
however, I heard the Holy Spirit say very clearly to me, "I'm about to
unravel the cords of confusion." When I heard this I had the sense that
it would begin in September.
In 2 Chronicles 20, God used
Israel's worship to "ambush" their enemies. The result was that these
enemies destroyed one another! Expect the confusion to break off of the
Church this fall and for God's enemies to be ambushed.
The November Elections
say it has been troubling to listen to prominent Christian leaders
endorse certain candidates and/or prophesy that it is God's will for
those candidates to be president would be an understatement. Make no
mistake about it, the turning of the Supreme Court and reversing the
flow of death and anti-God laws that have flowed out of it is still
God's number one governmental agenda for America.
elect a pro-abortion candidate that would appoint pro-abortion judges
would be disastrous and could set us back 50 years. It doesn't matter
who prophesies or states otherwise - don't be deceived by this. It is
NOT God's will for us to have a liberal, pro-abortion president!
listened to one of the presidential candidates make a speech four years
ago and heard one of the strongest abilities for deceiving and moving
the masses that I've ever witnessed. The strength of this "gift" was
very scary. I knew then he would be a candidate for president in '08.
The good news is that the deception surrounding him will begin to break
in September and the momentum of the elections will be decided at that
time - if the Church prays. Please pray diligently and don't be taken
in by charisma and empty promises of change.
The Presence Movement
coming awakening will not be known as a prayer movement, apostolic
movement, prophetic movement, teaching movement, miracle movement,
gifts movement, glory movement, etc. It will include all of these, but
the dominant emphasis and characteristic will be - His presence. He -
not one of His manifestations or elements of gifting - will be the
Our ministry in Colorado Springs, along with
many others I'm sure, has been privileged by God to help birth this. We
were visited by the Holy Spirit on June 15 and asked to host His
Presence 24/7 for 90 days, just as Obed-edom did with the Ark of the
Covenant, which is also called "the Ark of His Presence" (see 2 Samuel
We have suspended everything else to host Him.
No classes, no preaching (even on Sundays), no programs - nothing but
worship. It has wrecked us! His presence has been so overwhelming at
times in our gatherings that none of us knows what to do. We are being
ruined for "normal" Christianity.
It has become obvious
to us that this assignment is on behalf of the entire nation. We are in
the hidden, secret place with God, allowing the Holy Spirit to hover
through our worship and birth a "presence movement." God has spoken to
us prophetically that this movement characterized by His presence will
begin to be released to the nation in September.
