“The black community will ‘come of age’ in this hour, throwing off their shackles and seeking Me like never before. Their time has come.”

"I am in the process of bringing things to maturity and exposing ALL that stands in the way of the growth of My people,” says the Lord. “ No longer will petty issues keep cropping up, for I have a mind to deliver you! There is a time and a season for everything, and the time for maturity is NOW.
“Wait and watch for My deliverance, and do not trust those who say there is no deliverance, for the work I will do in your day will amaze you. You think you have seen it all because of what you went through personally. But I will now show you a corporate move that will amaze you and prove the skeptics wrong. Do not listen to those who say it can’t be done, but watch for the alignment of those who believe it can. Mighty things are about to occur on the earth that will impact future generations and restore hope to lost and wounded souls.
“Fear not the arrival of catastrophe, even on a large scale, for it will stir up the hearts of those who are ready to take action. My MERCY is about to be seen en masse: a great movement of mercy that will humble the naysayers and awaken the lazy. For there are those sitting on the fence now who have not entirely given up on Me, but who have longed for this move and been disappointed. These I will use also for My glory, to restore hope to wounded souls even as they see their own wounds heal.
“The black community will ‘come of age’ in this hour, throwing off their shackles and seeking Me like never before. Their time has come. What has been hidden is being exposed, and they will go in the light of that new freedom from shame and proclaim mercy to their next generation also.
“Do not forget this ‘nation within a nation,’ separate and unique although blended to a degree within the mix. Without them, the flavor and balance would be missing from the completed whole. Their contributions to America are indisputable and essential. It is time they were recognized by ALL as carrying the weight of My glory and the essence and flavor of My heart!
“The black community’s passion for Me has not died; no, in fact it has grown stronger over time as disappointment with man and his processes has overtaken them. Collectively they have sought Me and collectively they will see My vindication. Watch as I raise them up higher, elevating many black leaders in this hour who will bring sharp words of truth and light where others have sown only darkness.
“Like the lawyers and scribes who withheld the keys of knowledge, so there are people today who have shut the doors against this nation (ethnos) of people within your nation. I am “raining down keys” that will seem like keys of freedom to open the spiritual jail cells of bondage for them. One will have a key to a certain industry that has oppressed them; another a key for a church or a denomination; a third will hold the keys for families to be released from curses of the generations. All will work, all are valid because they are freshly cut and perfectly suited to the unique conditions in which they find themselves.
“Think of Joseph, who despite a great calling and gifting was sentenced unfairly to prison and kept there well beyond his time. His “key” became his gift to interpret dreams and so he unlocked not only his own freedom, but also the freedom of a nation by using it. He secured not just personal deliverance, but corporate deliverance and provision in a time of famine.
“I say to you, now is the time for Josephs to arise in the midst of famine, using their keys to set people free! You will see a complex situation and realize by the Spirit that you hold the exact key needed to unlock it. You will be faced with catastrophe but know that your unique training and experiences have prepared you to take charge of the situation and rescue others. Those who do so I will bless and promote within My Kingdom, and you will see new faces of leaders who have been called for such times and such situations, prepared in the crucible of fire yet emerging as strong as brass and able to stand in the midst of the fire.
“No longer will I delay deliverance for My people, nor allow spiritual segregation to divide, for the nation arising now will be used to embrace even their tormentors with grace, and will cause a unity between nations to emerge.
“Look not to the former leaders and their ways of doing things, but look now to the innovators, who for all their time in the background, have developed essential tools and spiritual skills that will carry not only their community but also this nation into the future."
