I hear the Lord saying He is going to give the ministries in the Dakotas waters to swim in. The river of God must increase. It will come up higher and when it does, those ministers who are prepared to swim, those men and women of God who understand the working of the Holy Spirit and have spent much time in His presence will be elevated to a new place. They will reach a new high in the things of God. Those who have not disdained the anointing or the gifts of the Spirit will find that they are wonderfully accustomed to this river, and they will teach others to swim.
The Lord is saying that ministries that have been in ND for years, but have been reluctant to step out in expressive worship will find themselves loosening up. They will have an encounter with the Spirit of God, and it will change the churches and the church structures of the region.
Godly strength and purpose is going to tear down old structures of religion in the Dakotas. People are going to walk free of the bondage of religion. They will rejoice in their new relationships with Christ Jesus. The churches in the Dakotas will be reformed and transformed. Apostolic ministries will arise out of the heart of the Dakotas and people will begin to recognize the great strength of the 5-fold ministry.
God is saying He will raise up prophetic teachers and prophetic schools in the two states. They will work together and their only purpose will be to build the Kingdom by equipping God’s people. God is going to fund these developing ministries, and the prophetic spirit is going to permeate the air in the Dakotas.
Churches in the Dakotas are going to carry a spiritual technology that other places don’t yet experience. If anyone said that the Dakotas are “behind the times” in natural things, they won’t be able to say that about the spiritual climate. There is a fore-runner, vanguard anointing on the people of God there. They are willing to go in first, and not fear the giants of the land. They will brave the cold and dangers to bring the people of God into realms in the Spirit they have not yet been. This starts in the Dakotas and then shakes the nations.
God is looking to the Dakotas as the heart of the nation; the heartland, and the people of God are about to experience a major jolt to a heart that seems like it is dying. A renewal will hit that region, the churches are going to come into the joy of the Lord. God says churches that seem little, insignificant and unheard of will take this fore-runner spirit and lead the others. Dakotas, you have been like forgotten David. While all your brothers are being considered for royalty, you already have royalty, leadership, and a fore-runner spirit within you. This is a prophetic, Samuel call for you now. A call for you to come out of the season of waiting. You will hold an undeniable presence of God’s government in your borders. The church in America will look to you for guidance.
Look and see what I do with the small town in North and South Dakota. Watch and see how I resurrect it and their churches says the Lord. Those forgotten by others will be your leaders. I see a time coming where the people of God will say “I need refreshing in my spirit, let’s go to the Dakotas!” Ministries saturated with the power of the Spirit will thrive in those states, they won’t feel like they have to go elsewhere to minister and be effective.
