Last week in an encounter with the Lord, I saw a time capsule being lowered from Heaven. I don't think I've ever seen a time capsule, but somehow I knew that this is what it was. I then heard the phrase "the fullness of time" and felt a great deal of anticipation.
I sensed through this vision that God was highlighting "time" and indicating that we are stepping into a specific God ordained time, a brand new and long awaited season with him, a great "fullness of time" season was upon us.
When I asked the Lord about what was inside the time capsule, I felt He indicated it was filled with His prophetic promises. The many wonderful things that God has been promising, the visions, dreams, and desires birthed out of Heaven, are coming into fulfillment.
I thought of the passage in Hab. 2:2-3 where the Lord says, "Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. For the revelation awaits an appointed time, it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait, for it it will certainly come and will not delay."
The words "an appointed time" were again highlighted to me and I saw that the prophetic promises that God has spoken have been stored up, waiting for their appointed time of fulfillment. I feel we are stepping into that time, even now. It is a God ordained, fullness of time, appointed time.
If you have received prophetic revelation or are partnering with those who have, do not be discouraged if the actualization of the revelation has not occurred. The appointed time of your revelation may "linger". But, it will certainly come and will not delay. We know God is never in a hurry, but we also know He's never too late in fulfilling His purposes and promises. Like the story of Lazarus, where Jesus appeared to be too late to heal His friend, He did an even greater miracle and raised Lazarus from the dead.
Some of your delays are Divine setups to see greater levels of glory. Some of your delays are allowing more time for the seed to germinate to produce an even greater harvest. But, in the fullness of time, you will see the fulfillment of what has been incubating. A great birthing is taking place for many people and for much of the kingdom, and though it may seem to linger, like any birth, it is imminent--it will surely come!
