Full Circle, Higher Level


Several years ago, I had an interesting experience with the Lord that led to new insights. While in worship, I heard Him say, “I am bringing you full circle.” As I contemplated this, I was convinced the "you" was plural - not just me, but we, the body of Christ.


As I continued meditating on this, Holy Spirit gave me a vision; I was looking down from heaven to earth and could see what appeared to be a circle being drawn on the ground. I was then moved from above to a side view. From this perspective, I could now see that it wasn’t actually a flat circle on the ground, but a spiral upward, like a giant coil.


Using this visual as a picture, the Lord said to me, “Full circle, higher level. I have now taken the church to a new level. She will do things she has done before, but at higher levels of effectiveness. Authority and power will be released, but at higher levels. Another season of miracles will be released…revelation will be imparted…revival is coming…all at higher levels. Full circle, higher level.”


I mentioned this in a message a short time later, and a man approached me after the service. "I am a Spirit-filled, Messianic Jewish rabbi,” he said. “I found your picture and comments regarding the circle interesting. This is very similar to what we Jews believe regarding time, and a related word in the Hebrew language." Continuing, he said, "Do you know what the word ‘testimony’ means in Hebrew?”


I answered, "No, I have never actually studied that."


"Well,” he said, “the root word for 'testimony' means, 'to repeat; to do again,’ or 'do time again.' It does not mean only to 'tell about or give witness of something.’” As clearly as I can recall, he continued by saying, “It’s like time is pregnant with God’s words and power. The Everlasting God places the power to do or accomplish something into time, and it is forever there. His words are eternal, alive, and powerful (Psalm 119:89; Hebrews 4:12). Through His laws, principles, and Word, we can tap into this power. Declaring what He has done in the past is one of the ways we do so.


“So, we believe that when one declares God’s Word or shares what He did in the past, a testimony, the same power is released to ‘do it again’ today. That's why we believe it's so important to tell our children what God did in the past, and why God was angry with Israel when they neglected to teach them Israel’s history. For example, we believe that when we tell our children about the exodus - how God delivered Israel from Egypt at Passover through great signs and wonders - the same power is released again. Our children receive the power of Passover and deliverance. We believe this power can be released again, and again, and again, and again.”


And I was just, well, speechless. But he wasn’t finished.


"We have actually begun acting on this by sending people who have been supernaturally healed to other sick people - repeatedly; all they do is share their testimony of healing. And people are being healed!”


My head was spinning. But he STILL wasn’t finished!


He then spoke of time in relationship to this. “We don’t measure time in a linear fashion as Westerners do, as in a timeline. We see time as cyclical, like the circle you saw, and we believe God does things in cycles. We actually believe that as time cycles annually, and we reach the time of year when God did something in history, it’s easier to tap into the power again. During the time of Israel's feasts, for example, we believe it’s easier to tap into what God ‘placed’ in that feast-time.”


To say he set me on a quest would be an understatement. I set out to discover if these things were true. I’m still not certain I understand all of it, but I have at least been able to confirm some of what he said. I studied the Hebrew word for testimony, eduwth/eduth, and sure enough, the root word (ud or uwd) means, “repeat or do again.” The lexicon said It refers to “the continuance of a past event.” For this reason, the Arabic words for “return” and “habit” come from this same root. (1)


As I considered all of this, I realized we have had elements of this concept in our Christian faith, but haven't fully understood it. We preach the gospel, which is “the power of God unto salvation” (Romans 1:16). We know power is released when we re-tell the gospel story - the same power to save, deliver, and heal that was generated at Calvary 2000 years ago. The power is there, just waiting to be released.


Many believe, and I am one of them, that when we eat the bread and drink the cup of Communion, the same power that came forth at Calvary should be released to us again. We are to “partake of” it, which is what the word for communion actually means (koinonia) (2). Sadly, many have not been taught this, and therefore, do not activate their faith to receive it. I believe the power remains in this covenantal act, however, and when we “testify” of Christ’s sacrifice, mixed with faith, power is released.


I found myself wondering: maybe this is why the Bible says, “We overcome by the blood of the Lamb, and the word of our TESTIMONY!” (Revelation 12:11). Perhaps this is why it is important that "The redeemed of the Lord SAY SO!" (Psalm 107:2).


Command the Foreword

Could this be why God told us to “command the foreword?” I believe it is. When we testify of His past works and words in our nation (or our lives, of course), the power is released again. Paul told Timothy when he was facing great opposition and discouragement: “This command I entrust to you, Timothy, my son, in accordance with the prophecies previously made concerning you, that BY THEM you fight the good fight” (I Timothy 1:18, emphasis mine).


Fascinating. Use the prophecies spoken over you with which to war spiritually. Isaiah 55:11 tells us prophecies from God have “assignments” in them: ”So will the words that come out of my mouth not come back empty-handed. They’ll do the work I sent them to do, they’ll complete the assignment I gave them” (The Message). “Do the work” is the word asah in Hebrew, one of the primary Old Testament words for create. (3) “My words have creative power,” God is saying. “And they will do what I have assigned them to do.”


When we with faith read Robert Hunt’s God-given prophecy over America, it releases God’s power and the assignment His words carry. When we read the inspired covenantal words of America’s Founders - in the Declaration, the Constitution, the State Constitutions, their prayers, etc - we are releasing God’s power and the synergy of the ages. Why else would satan fight to distort and rob us of our godly history? Why else would he fight the principle of decreeing God’s written Word and prophetic words? If this did nothing, he would want us to waste our time doing so.


Stay the course!


Pray with me:


Forever, oh Lord, Your Word is settled in heaven (Psalm 119:89). Your words are just as powerful today as they were when You first spoke them. They are alive and powerful (Hebrews 4:12), spirit and life, (John 6:63). They never return void, empty, or fruitless, but always accomplish their assignments (Isaiah 55:11). They are seeds, containing reproductive, multiplicative power (Matthew 13:37; 1 Peter 1:23). Your words produce faith (Romans 10:17), multiplied fruit (Matthew 13:23), and victory in battle (I Timothy 1:18; Ephesians 6:17). When we speak them, we are not demanding from You, but honoring You, demonstrating our trust.


Therefore, we commit ourselves to command Your Word in order to produce life, to defeat satan and his plans against our lives, families, states, and nations. We will release them to accomplish the victory of Calvary:


We declare that the gospel will go forth from these shores to every tribe, tongue, and nation on earth. We declare that America exists to preach the gospel of the Kingdom to all nations - and will do so. We declare that as all other kingdoms, systems, anti-Christ plans and activities are shaken down, Your Kingdom will stand. We know that the coming shaking is Your mercy to turn America back to You and Your purposes, in order that hundreds of millions of people here and around the world be saved. We declare that America’s borders are protected from every satanic plan to destroy this nation. All of these things we say, ask, and seal in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.


Our decree:


We declare that the millions of prayers and decrees released over America (and over other nations) are alive, and will NOT fail to produce God’s will and purposes.
