Several foundations compel me to excitement about the future. I’m not diminishing the fraud behind Covid, the election, and the actions of “Let’s go, Brandon.” But I believe God’s people and the United States, in general, are headed for exciting times. Here’s my story:

Not all Biblical prophecy points to the future – as a collage-age believer, I got swept up in the rapture and imminent return of Jesus. I didn’t think I would reach graduation! However, as I studied eschatology and the theological options decades later, it became clear that the devil would not prevail, and we are not evacuating the earth. My biggest error was a simple assumption that all or most Biblical prophecy was pointing to the future – It’s simply not. If we read Daniel and Revelation with the religious presumption that it’s in the future, we set ourselves up for deception. We’re here to redeem and bless people and nations in another Reformation. Without going into the details here, read Victorious Eschatology by Harold Eberle, 2021.

Sons in the council – The experience of going to the courts and council of heaven has revolutionized my prayer life, seer gift, and prophetic aptitude. We are being invited to co-labor with Father from the perspective of heaven, seeing what Father is doing and doing it with Him. This invitation to flow with the purpose of heaven is way beyond encouragement! The theological treatise on the council is The Unseen Realm by Michael Heiser. Once I saw the Biblical precedent for sons, I wrote Seers and Doers to describe the priestly experience of our role in heaven. Intentional Reformation describes the kingly experience of bringing heaven to earth in our mountain. We are all called to be both priests and kings.

Ages Eyes Wide Open by Martin Trench has a straightforward concept regarding the definition of Age – (aion, G165). Ages are the 2000+ year constellation shifts that parallel signs of the times: Aries (the bull, Old Testament sacrifice) > Pisces (the fishes, church) > Aquarius (the water bearer, sons bringing heaven or Kingdom to earth). Astrology (substituting horoscopes for hearing God) is a popular perversion of this truth. However, the early church and cultures were aware of times and seasons defined by constellation shifts. There are many references to the 12 signs of the zodiac in the first-century church and many more in the cultures of the day. For example, Jesus’ life coincides with the end of Aries and the beginning of Pisces. Transitions take decades and ages overlap, so Pisces became visible at Jesus birth, and Aries entirely disappeared in 70 AD coincident with the destruction of the temple and the end of Old Testament animal sacrifices. Notice the “gradual” language in Hebrews, “becoming obsolete” – “growing old” – “ready to disappear.”

Heb 8:13 – When He said, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. But whatever is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to disappear. NASU

So What? – Here is one (of many) examples of the significance of ages. In Matthew 24:3 (KJV), Jesus’ disciples said, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world (aion)? “World” should be translated “age” in the cultural context of the end of Aries and the beginning of Pisces. The fish sign has been symbolic of Christianity for 2000 years since then. The world is not “ending!

Aquarius – The next obvious question is, what does the next age of Aquarius entail? Its exact start is about now, plus or minus a few decades. Here are a few thoughts. Of course, you are welcome to email me your observations:

#1. People are ready to trade their religion for ascension; to access the courts and council of heaven as sons, who bring heaven to earth. However, they want to engage in real spiritual experiences that make a difference on earth, not just sound hermeneutics from a pulpit.

#2. Sons have rivers of living water flowing from their bellies, the water-bearers (Aquarius). They make the valley of Baca (a place of sorrow) a spring with their water! Every one of them appears before God in Zion (sons in the courts and council) so that they can bring heaven to earth.

Ps 84:6-7Passing through the valley of Baca they make it a spring; The early rain also covers it with blessings. 7 They go from strength to strength, Every one of them appears before God in Zion. NASU

#3. Sons are awakening to be apostolic fathers who can pull others into the desires of their hearts and connect them with their book (Ps. 139:15-16). Sons love connecting with Father’s purpose and playing their role in making it happen on earth with creativity and the initiative of exploits.

#4. Sons see the Kingdom in all seven mountains of culture. Church is one of those mountains, but it is no longer the only mountain of spirituality. Business, government, media, arts and entertainment, education, medicine, and family are now focal points of their spiritual and redemptive leadership. We are moving from Jesus saves through meetings and revivals “to” Jesus reigns through a Reformation of Cultures and Nations. The enticement to salvation will come from the example of sons; from kingdom opportunities to co-labor in mountains, not just sermon invitations to sit, listen, and wait for God to do it all.

#5. Sons are awakening to Reformation of Nations. They can see because they have a seer gift that operates from heaven and can look behind the curtain during the fog of war:

  1. They can see an agenda behind Covid
  2. They see the Cyrus in Trump; the new template in DeSantis and Kristi Noem
  3. They see a fraudulent election and two impostors about to be “tossed”
  4. They see the cleansing of the deep state around the world
  5. They see manipulation from China lining the pockets of politicians and businesses
  6. They see the dragon’s agenda in the Spirit and the natural
  7. But most of all, they see Reformation coming like a train that cannot be stopped
  8. They see the calling on the USA to be the light and glory for the world
  9. They see our role in setting captives free at every level (people, businesses, and nations)
  10. They are prophetic trumpets who are not afraid to speak to the darkness and release the light

#6. Shaking is awakening God’s people to “take back” their constitution and their spiritual heritage. Around the world, they are fed up with tyranny and they are hearing, Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty. Covid is a surface issue that God has used to expose a much deeper cancer in nations. Yesterday’s crazy conspiracies have become today’s accepted realities.

#7 Alternative Media on the internet has already replaced the TV news. CNN is about to go out of business! Nearly everyone sees the news as propaganda – what they want us to believe about current events. Public figures are seen as puppets and the controllers behind the scenes are gradually being exposed around the world. Banking systems and political networks are already shaking and will be next.

#8 Engagement – Many more believers are in lawsuits, on school boards, city councils, and congressional seats to put the train back on the tracks. The pew-passiveness is leaving the ecclesia. Sons are owning responsibility for Mountains at a practical level. We are in the furnace but not bowing to the fraud.

#9. ______________________

#10. _____________________

The Tipping point – We are reaching an exciting tipping point on many levels in the Spirit and the natural. It’s not that hard to “see.” Exposure is proving to be a weapon of warfare on earth empowered by God’s judgment from heaven. Truth is being shouted from the rooftops. Secrets, secret societies, and those who control the puppet strings have no place to hide.

Why am I excited? Sons are the tip of the spear in this Reformation – it’s intentional. I have a role.

 1 Cor 2:9-10However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him”— 10 but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. NIV

What About you? – The purpose of heaven for each of us is already written in your heart and can be heard in the Council. Your business can shift from a Christian business full of servants to a Kingdom business full of sons who make a difference. We help people and businesses get their prophetic purpose in writing and then make it happen on earth. Taste and see! Tools to get started are here:

Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.

Rev 22:1-3 – Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2 down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. NIV

Ps 48:1-2 – Great is the Lord, and most worthy of praise, in the city of our God, his holy mountain.  2 It is beautiful in its loftiness, the joy of the whole earth. Like the utmost heights of Zaphon is Mount Zion, the city of the Great King.  (Jesus) NIV

John 14:2-4 – In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you.

Eph 2:6-7 – And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,

Col 3:4 – When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. NIV

Heb 11:16 – Instead, they were longing for a better country — a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.  NIV

Rev 21:1-4 – Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City (sons?), the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Heb 11:9-10 – By faith he lived as an alien in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, fellow heirs of the same promise; 10 for he was looking for the city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God. NASU

Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. NIV

From Larry Tyler

I see the possibility of many individuals thinking, feeling, and being conditioned into believing that going to the council and seeing/hearing what the Father is doing as being something that should result in great acts of boldness and courage and that everything the Father is doing is like Jesus feeding the 5000 (really 20,000) with lots of leftovers. When in reality what we see might be someone with a great need and we are to take what we have in our hand and raise it up to the Father in thanks and ask that He bless it and multiply it (as Jesus modeled for us) so that this one person’s need can be abundantly met by our simple act of love, kindness, creativity and compassion in response to what we see the Father doing. To the Father one person is as important as a whole nation.  

We are not all called to be a type of Cyrus. Many feel like they have to save the whole nation or world. But we are all called to be and do our part as designed by God. it’s about “doing what is doable” in the situation that confronts us, I believe. 

We are all created as spirit beings and human beings, but divine order is to reign first and foremost, being a spirit being first and seeing and hearing what the Father is doing. This is to be our “spiritual breathing” isn’t it?
