Properly responding to life's seasons of transition yields beautiful harvests in our lives and in the lives of those around us. Persevering through long stretches of waiting and enduring through the sometimes heart-wrenching challenges that come with change are not easy feats.Nonetheless, if we position our hearts rightly, we will arrive at the horizon of that season victoriously.

In my 35 years of ministry, I have been through quite a bit of transition. In the past three years alone we have transitioned out from a 20-year tenure pastoring a healthy church in Colorado, to supporting a youth ministry in Alabama, and now serving as Executive Director of Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, TX. And we are still in transition, still receiving new assignments, and still seeking Holy Spirit's direction on how to carry them out. It's keeping us young!

Despite the drastic shifts in location and assignment, my life mandate has not changed. Dutch Sheets Ministries (DSM) remains steadfast in carrying out an apostolic mandate to restore hope to America and be a voice for awakening and reformation. Every weekend, I am traveling for DSM and laboring for this great cause. Since the start of this calendar year, I have ministered in over two-dozen cities across the nation, stirring the Church to pray, challenging Believers to be the Ekklesia, and fanning into flame the fires of revival and awakening.

All along this journey, through the transitions and the waiting, from one assignment to the next, as well as in steadfast pursuit of awakening and reformation, the most important lesson I've learned has been:make time to listen to and obey God's voice.

A New Level of Listening, Discerning and Seeing

Many of us have arrived at the place where we stand today only because we've been diligent to lean in to hear the voice of the Lord. Nonetheless, I feel very strongly in my spirit, that to arrive at our next great horizon, we must go to a new level of listening, discerning, and seeing in the SpiritThere is a new realm of prophetic revelation God is inviting us to tap into that will take us to a greater level of authority and assignment.

There are new paradigms and strategies being released to the Church that are vital for successfully moving forward into the next season. We cannot allow our attention to be divided. We must identify and remove anything that is crowding out His voice. Not only must we incline our ears to hear what Holy Spirit is saying to us, we must be willing to obey. We must bring ourselves under the authority of what we hear, to submit to it and follow it through to obedience.

One thing is certain; God has faithfully met me with an increase of anointing with every step of obedience in my personal life and ministry. And as we continue to listen and obey, we are seeing God raise us up into higher levels of authority and influence.

But this is for everyone! This promise of increase is available to you too!The Church has moved into a season of increase. It's yours for the taking!

For those who are hungry, for those who are diligent to listen and willing to obey, there is increase available – increased anointing for signs, wonders, evangelism, prayer, prophecy, and more.

Lean in close; He is speaking in the quiet. Posture your heart to obey breakthrough and increase await.

  • Since the beginning of this class session and the beginning of time,  the optimal word has been obedience.  In obedience the blessings come, the deliverance comes, the breakthrough, and the next dimension comes. We have to have a willingness to hear, we have to comprehend and then we must act. Often times we listen, but we don't hear.  Even if we hear, more often than not,sw we don't comprehend because we do not take the time to soak in the what has been said.  That is both naturally and spiritually.  As we begin to use our spiritual Q-tips to clear the passage way for the words spoken by God to enter in, we will begin to experience a greater increase in every area of ministry. 

  • Amen. This is a reminder that we need to continue to stay steadfast and to continually grow in God.

  • Amen! The mandate may remain the same, doesn't mean the location will. God will send us where He needs us. We have to be obedient and go. To get more ee have to give more to Him. Its ours for the taking! Praise God!
  • Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness snap be filled. Father I surrender all so can go to that next level of listening and obeying. Thank you Lord for my increase in my anointing as fully obey what I hear.
    This is a true awareness, a divine awakening so we all can advance.
  • Father God in the name of Christ Jesus, I will be diligent to listen and obey for i am hungry and a willing vessel, fill my cup lord, fill my cup. Glory to God!

  • When the student ready the teacher will appear? When we put are will aside and learn what's the will of the father the holy spirit will began to speak into your spirit man and leading you to all spiritual truth
  • WOG, God is joyful that you are positioning yourselves to hear and obey him.  If you stay focused you will have a breakthrough and increase in the area of our life that needs it. Be Blessed

  • We I pray that we all enter into the next realm!
  • This Is Confirmation My mother (Pastor Suddenly) and I were just talking right along the lines of this subject. About prophecy and how to gain prophecy they way God wants you too. And that God can use you in any part of the gift in your calling he may choose but what will you do to hear his voice that is not always going to be loud as a trumpet but quiet like a whisper.

  • Lord .I recieve this word... pour out into me. Lord I will listen for your voice andni willmobey. Where ever u say go I will go. Because I know you are with me and will lead and protect me. I submit myself to you lord....

    I am ready to go out and do work for the kingdom lord.
