Word by Doug Addison
This is what the Lord says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” Jeremiah 6:16–17 NIV
The Lord is opening the “ancient paths” to those who want to go deeper in intimacy and higher in spiritual wisdom, revelation and understanding.
Your suffering and dark nights of the soul are coming to an end.
For those who want this, “… ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.”
There is a season of rest coming but you have to battle to get into it.
Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest. Hebrews 4:11 KJV
The Lord is calling people to step up right now and contend and battle for what is coming. As you come into agreement with the Lord and others in prayer, you can battle from a place of rest. The time of rest will come after first of January.
But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 NKJV
The Lord is sending you new supernatural strength and there is a major impartation of refreshment available right now.
What is the Ancient Path?
The “ancient” or old path in the Bible is revelation and understanding of things that have previously been hidden or sealed.
I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world. Matthew 13:35 NIV
The Lord is revealing and unsealing revelation wisdom that has been in the Bible all along, but suddenly it will make sense and apply to your current situation.
The Lord is raising up people who will be willing to take the “ancient path” and reconnect with the old way that is different than the popular messages that are being heard in the world today.
This does not mean that you go back to the old-time-religion preaching of hell and trying to scare people into conversions. Instead, the Lord is calling people to find a new sound and language to connect the Lord’s love to the generations.
Callings laid down are now available
But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ I appointed watchmen over you and said, ‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet!’ But you said, ‘We will not listen.’ Jeremiah 6:16–17 NIV
The Lord is reconciling the Kingdom; and the gifts and callings of those who have said no to them in the past are now being redistributed. This is not punishment for them but is being done for the sake of revival and getting the message of Jesus to the world.
For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Romans 11:29 NKJV
Even though the gifts and calling are irrevocable, the Lord can shift the actual anointing and assignment to someone who will use it. The person who had it still has the ability to recover it later if they pursue it.
For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. Matthew 13:12 NKJV
Jesus talks about the fact that those who are not operating in their spiritual gifts and abilities will lose their assignments. They can still keep their gifts.
According to Jesus, the ones who get the impartation of those who laid it down will have a greater portion.
Damages from the pandemic
I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me, and what answer I am to give to this complaint. Habakkuk 2:1 NIV
We have suffered a lot with the COVID-19 pandemic. The greatest blow of the enemy was taking out a large number of the mature and elderly. They were the ones who were holding us up and in place with prayer and intercession.
We have an urgent need to rebuild our walls of intercession. Something new is coming the first of the year and we need to bridge the gap until then.
Urgent call to pray for 3 months
And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. Romans 13:11 NKJV
The Lord is calling people who might not consider themselves to be intercessors to step into a 3-month “special task force from Heaven” assignment to pray and fill the gap from October through the end of December.
There is a major shifting happening in 2022 and we need to bridge the gap and take a 3-month special assignment of prayer and intercession.
The Lord is restoring the watchmen
Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. Psalm 127:1 NKJV
Since many of the major watchmen of the Lord have gone to Heaven, the Lord is now preparing people to step into the place of a watchman in prayer.
Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. Ezekiel 3:17 NIV
A new power and urgency to pray is coming to people and there will be a “new paradigm” or wineskin of prophetic intercession; and watchmen on the wall will start to emerge over the next few months.
This is a very exciting and powerful time for us. New assignments and callings have been released; and as we step up and say yes to the Lord, you will find an amazing amount of strength and revelation start to flow to you.
