Yes, this may be a time to get quiet before the Lord and wait on HIM, asking Him, "What are You saying TO ME, LORD?" Getting quiet before Him is not shutting down...it's opening yourself back up.
Trust me, God not only wants to talk to you more than He ever has, but HE IS ALREADY DOING SO! How sad it would be for any of us to hear God less when He's so personally talking to each of us right now.
By decreeing into the spirit realm, "God, LET THERE BE LIGHT in my life! Let Your voice become increasingly clear; let YOUR VOICE be a LIGHT TO MY PATH," you will be pleasing God.
With that in mind, "Opening Portals of Revelation" is just the word of the Lord you need through Wanda Alger. You are about to do exactly the opposite of shutting down. You are about to become very active with God, who is speaking to you RIGHT NOW as you read this...I promise! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." (John 1:5)
I woke up hearing the words "PORTALS OF REVELATION." This came not just as an idea, but as an ORDER. I could feel an urgency in the spirit to take action on this command.
I saw people rushing to contend for PROPHETIC DECREES to OPEN PORTALS IN THE SPIRIT. I saw them running to cover and protect prophetic voices (literally laying on top of them to protect them from attack), for these orders must be given for Heaven to act! Heaven recognizes those with pure hearts and is calling for these prophetic voices to REMEMBER THEIR CHARGE to speak the decrees of the Lord!
While we have been so busy debating prophetic predictions, we have allowed the enemy to shut down our voices and stifle our call in partnering with Heaven. When we speak God's words, they have power to create and OPEN UP the heavens for light to shine through.
Use Your Prophetic Decrees! Darkness Must Yield to the Light
In the beginning of creation, darkness was covering the earth. But, in the midst of that darkness, God said, "LET THERE BE LIGHT!" This was not a petition, but an order! It took His voice to separate the light from the darkness. Darkness will always yield to the light, but it requires the command of the Lord to be issued – without hesitation. (Photo via Wikipedia)
I have felt a heaviness in the spiritual atmosphere lately and a stifling of declarations due to the doubts and fears of man. Prophets have been silenced and sidelined as we debate predictions and compare our perceptions. We cannot confuse predictive pronouncements with prophetic decrees. One may determine our future, but the other one is what OPENS THE DOOR TO THAT FUTURE! The enemy has taken advantage of our differences and wants to neutralize our authority in the spirit. And yet, revelation and wisdom are standing at the gates of this nation, looking for those who will call them in.
The Call of Wisdom and Revelation
"Does not wisdom call? Does not understanding raise her voice? On the heights beside the way, at the crossroads she takes her stand; beside the gates in front of the town, at the entrance of the portals she cries aloud." (Proverbs 8:1-3)
Wisdom is knocking at our door! Revelation is standing at our gates, beckoning us to give her entrance to shed LIGHT on the darkness, separating truth from lies. We desperately need Heaven's light of truth to shatter the darkness and bring understanding to men's minds. It is Heaven's wisdom and revelation that, even now, call to the sons of men:
"The fear of the LORD is hatred of evil. PRIDE and ARROGANCE and the way of evil and perverted speech I HATE. I have counsel and sound wisdom; I have insight; I have strength. BY ME kings reign, and rulers decree what is just; by me princes rule, and nobles, all who govern justly." (Proverbs 8:13-16)
You Have Been Given the Keys to the Gates of Revelation
It is only through this SPIRIT OF REVELATION that men can see and understand what is true, right, and good. Agents of darkness have closed these access points in the heavens through their vows of deception and cursing of the truth. But, we have been given the authority and the keys to open these gates to the light. We need to use them. (Photo via Pxhere)
We must open these portals and doorways of revelation by declaring once again, "LET THERE BE LIGHT! Darkness – be set apart! LIGHT – come forth for all to SEE the TRUTH that will set men free! Lift up your heads, O gates! And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in!" (See Psalm 24:7-9.)
The future before us is waiting on our agreement with Heaven. UNTIL we all see through the filter of God's light and truth, disagreements will continue to circle and swirl. We must rise above this and issue the order for the ancient doors of revelation to be opened and God's glorious light to burst through.
"For God, who said, 'Let light shine out of darkness,' has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." (2 Corinthians 4:6)
