I believe 2010 will prove to be a major turning point in many situations, and I recently received ‘The sound of the anvil’ from Paul Leader’. I have known Paul for a number of years and he is someone I trust. Here it is as he wrote it….
Hi everyone, here is the sounding out of the anvil for 2010. After releasing part of this on facebook I had feedback that the same thing was heard a few years ago. I asked who said it, and apparently I did!!! At first I was miffed but then after thought I was very chuffed, that is the sounding of the anvil, a repetetive sounding out that will over time shape something for incredible use. So here is what I sense and here for the new year…
2010 will be a significant year of shifting ground that will lead to major exposing and uncovering. It will be a time for open heavens and new wells, and the rediscovery of old wells. His eye will go too and fro through-out the earth seeking and saving what has been lost or misplaced. What has been buried will be uncovered, especially those things that the enemy has tried to keep hidden, this includes truths that have kept the Body of Christ disabled or at a place of powerlessness. There will be signs over the next twelve months such as many major archeological discoveries, and there will be major exposure of secrets behind key political events from major points of history.
There have already been key signs in the earth such as major discoveries of major oil supplies over the last few months. Headline in New York Times read, ‘ Oil Industry Sets a Brisk Pace of New Discoveries.’ The article says the discoveries have taken place in five continents, and have been due to deeper drilling through tougher rocks. There have been more than 200 discoveries this year by the giants and by the minnows. Areas include Irag’s Kurdish region, Australia, Brazil, Norway, Ghana, Russia and the Falkland Islands. I believe the Lord is ready to release fresh deposits of oil through-out the earth. There will be those who have experienced tough valley times that will make the Valley of Baca into a place of pools. These pools will be teaming with fresh deposits of oil. Gushers will spring forth through-out the world at places that have known hardship economically, physically and spiritually. And not just the major western countries either, many minnow countries will flow with fresh oil.
There has also been the discovery of more new species of plants and flowers this year than any other year. They have been growing in seclusion and only now has God allowed their discovery. At this moment there are many hidden moves of God. Many places of creativity that are yet to be unearthed and discovered. This year we will see God at work in many secluded places. God loves a hidden place, many revivals and moves begin in backwater places. Even Christ’s birth is a sign of how hidden births are high on God’s agenda. I believe we will be surprised at what comes out of Eastern Europe and France and Germany, and many small African and South American Nations, towns and villages.
It is time to pick up the staff and declare Moses is dead long live Joshua. The inheritance of land and community is waiting for us. How we did the last season will not fit this season. It is a new day with a blank canvas. It is not only the goal-posts that have been moved but the whole playing field. How we played the game before will not give us victory now!!! It is time to re-write the history books. It is time to venture where we have never been before in ways we have never gone there. This will be a season of new doors and new invitations. many will enter into new Nations for the first time. New jobs, ministry etc. Eyes and spades, site and gardens, look and dig. Get the tent ready for mobility. Static christianity has a sell-by date, it is now time for the Nomadics. It is time for the shape-shifting church and gatherings. Flowing with the contours of the land and community. The rhythm of God beat out.
The race for Christmas number one. This was a sign and very significant in that the corporate machine was beat by the power of the people. The safe sound was beat by a shout, a noise, a cry against the establishment. The Lord spoke to me concerning the sound of his church. It would no longer be enough to worship to the safe sound of the corporate machine. Infact I believe we will see a meltdown this year in the contemporary christian music scene. The corporate machine of endless safeness will begin to crumble. Our sound will not be dictated to by the machine. Major worship ‘stars’ will either lay down their guitars in obedience or will experience difficulties. What will arise will be the sound of the people. Worship will be given back to ordinary people and not controlled by the few. Prophetic sounds will be released by many who have never played an instrument. It will come with an edge. It will seem to be anti-establishment, and will clash with the machine, but in reality it will be establishing something more significant, a people worship movement that restores every member ministering.
Going back to the garden will be significant this season too. A rediscovery of what it means to know God as the Gardener. The garden is a place of creativity. It is a place of origins and firsts. It is a place of rediscovering our true image and identity. It is a place of dominion. It is a place of fruitfulness and creativity. It is a place of filling the earth. It is a place of good food. It is where man becomes a living being. It is a place of relationship and communion with God and one another. It is a place of wild wandering in the cool of the day. It is time for the garden to be revisited.
2010 is a key to the next ten year window to 2020, the year of perfect vision. What we begin to see established now will become foundational for the season ahead. New roads, new paths, new foundations, new vision. A fresh insight into all that God desires for us. Get ready for the year of exposure and uncovering.
Trust this blesses etc. Submitted in love and humility, Paul.
