Follow Me into the Acceleration Zone!

Acceleration for Redeeming the Time
We have been hearing the theme repeatedly about this being a season of Acceleration. Repetition is a one of God’s ways to tell us that He is trying to get us to really listen and understand what He is saying!
So I began to ask the Lord what is the purpose of this Acceleration? Lord, Why are You emphasizing this particular issue over and over again? What is it that You are trying to accomplish with this season of Acceleration?
God doesn’t do anything haphazardly. He always moves with Wise Intentionality and Eternal Purpose! He has a plan and a purpose for everything He is doing. He is trying to accomplish and establish something that will set the stage for the following seasons.
Revival and Reformation have a purpose! They are not just for us to get Giggles and Goosebumps! Their divine purpose is to Redeem as much as possible while the opportunity is available to do so! Redemption and Reconciliation to God are the underlying theme of all that Jesus came to do! He wants to Reconcile the world to Himself and to Redeem – to Re-obtain / Regain ownership of – that which was handed over to His Adversary!
So, Here is what I feel the Lord is revealing to me.
Col. 4:5 (NKJV) 5 Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside,
redeeming the time.
Eph. 5:15-17 (NKJV) 15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise,
16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
Revelation 2:17 (NKJV) 17 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat….”
The Time is Short
1 Corinthians 7:29-31 (NKJV) 29 But this I say, brethren, the time is short, …For the form of this world is passing away.
Unfortunately, Many Christians still don’t perceive that which is happening at this season of time. The political situation in America, and the world, was given to us for a Divine purpose! We did not deserve it. We were shown great mercy and given a divine opportunity to be game changers and world changers for the purposes of God’s Kingdom! Because discernment is so lacking in believers they get side tracked by sideline issues and do not comprehend what it is that God is really after here. Simply put, He is trying to redeem every man, woman, and child on the earth! He wants every soul! No one left behind!
The problem that exists is this; not everyone is on God’s team! It is a sad thing that there are evil people who will not repent! And even sadder still, there are some of those who are extremely evil and they are doing everything in their own power to hinder all that God desires to do! So when we are given an opportunity that will allow for a vast number of souls to be led into God’s Kingdom, then we need to do as much as possible, as quickly as possible, in order to reap the greatest harvest that this season can produce!
The Acceleration Zone!
The speed of Sound is the distance travelled per unit time by a sound wave as it propagates through an elastic medium. At 20 °C, the speed of sound in air is about 343 metres per second, or a kilometre in 2.9 s or a mile in 4.7 s. It depends strongly on temperature…. (Wikipedia)
(Temperature can represent for us a type of the spiritual climate we are in!)
When man was finally able to BREAKTHROUGH the sound barrier the result was the ability to fly at a much higher velocity than ever before and to get to places much faster than before and to accomplish more in a shorter amount of time than ever before! Hence – A Zone of Acceleration!!!
The Speed of Light:
“Put simply, light moves at incredible speeds and is the fastest moving thing in the Universe. Its speed is considered a constant and an unbreakable barrier, and is used as a means of measuring distance. But just how fast does it travel?
Speed of Light (c): Light travels at a constant speed of 1,079,252,848.8 (1.07 billion) km per hour. That works out to 299,792,458 m/s, or about 670,616,629 mph (miles per hour). To put that in perspective, if you could travel at the speed of light, you would be able to circumnavigate the globe approximately seven and a half times in one second. Meanwhile, a person flying at an average speed of about 800 km/h (500 mph), would take over 50 hours to circle the planet just once. (https://www.universetoday.com/)”
An even greater Zone of Acceleration!
Warp Speed! (Scotty :))
For those of us who are intrigued with the incredible insights that Gene Rodenberry had when he created the television series “Star Trek”, the question that Captain Kirk would keep asking chief Engineer “Scotty” was, “Mr. Scott, Can you give me Warp…?” something? 5, 6, 7?
Warp speed was considered to be traveling at the speed of light or faster! Each increase in the Warp Factor was to represent a multiplied factor of traveling faster than the speed of light.
It is interesting that the first words of God creating this realm of existence were, “Let there be light!” (Gen. 1:3)
Fast Forward to Jesus: And the Apostle John Said this in John 1:1-9 (NKJV) “1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.”
And the Prophet Isaiah said this,
Isaiah 9:2 (NKJV) 2”The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined.”
The Light Factor!
The Light Factor!
This may be getting kind of technical for some, but here is the bottom line of the “Light Factor”:
Light “… moves at incredible speeds and is the fastest moving thing in the Universe. Its speed is considered a constant and an unbreakable barrier, and is used as a means of measuring distance. (See Above – Redeeming the Time)
I hear the Lord Saying to His People:
“Warp Speed” My people! It is time to move faster than ever before to accomplish My purposes!
(Matthew 5:14-16 (NKJV) 14) “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
You are an unbreakable barrier and will go great distances and enter into realms that have yet to be seen by My people! For My “suddenlies” are upon you and also times of quick transitions.
The Joseph’s are being Released!
Genesis 41:14 (NKJV) 14 Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him quickly out (Suddenly!) of the dungeon; and he shaved, changed his clothing, and came to Pharaoh.
Many of MY Joseph’s who have borne the trials and tribulations of the prisons are poised to become great leaders in MY kingdom! Great assignments await you! And with those assignments are great anointing’s! The likes you have not felt before!
Accelerated Assignments & Quick Transitions!
Jesus didn’t allow Himself to be lead by needs or popular opinion. Many times He moved to another assignment quickly because He saw the Father doing something else somewhere else through Him!
Luke 4:42-43 (NKJV) 42 Now when it was day, He departed and went into a deserted place. And the crowd sought Him and came to Him, and tried to keep Him from leaving them; 43 but He said to them, “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent.”
This happened to Paul as well in a different way.
Acts 22:17-21 (NKJV) 17 “Now it happened, when I returned to Jerusalem and was praying in the temple, that I was in a trance 18 and saw Him saying to me, Make haste and get out of Jerusalem quickly, for they will not receive your testimony concerning Me.’ 19 So I said, ‘Lord, they know that in every synagogue I imprisoned and beat those who believe on You. 20 And when the blood of Your martyr Stephen was shed, I also was standing by consenting to his death, and guarding the clothes of those who were killing him.’ 21 Then He said to me, ‘Depart, for I will send you far from here to the Gentiles.’ ”
Whatever the catalyst, the destination is the key.
There are places to go and people to be reached with the gospel! Do not set your eyes on the catalyst, but rather set your eyes on the joy set before you and preach My word wherever you go! What you do, do it quickly for some of you will move from here to there on various assignments before settling back down in one place again. Lay up treasures for yourselves in heaven and come follow Me into the Acceleration Zone!
