The Lord spoke to me that 2019 is “The Year of the Revealed Sons.” The Bible declares in Romans 8:12, “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.” Spiritual “sons,” in the Kingdom sense, are not limited to men only. “Sons” are not gender based but rather position based. A spiritual son is one who qualifies to receive the divine inheritance and blessing of a father. In our case, the Father of Lights (James 1:17). Believers who are led by the Spirit of God, pursuing Christ-likeness and maturing in their Kingdom walk, qualify as spiritual sons, whether man or woman.
Sons in Darkness
“As the glory of God arises upon the revealed sons, the light of God shines upon them from Heaven causing them to emerge rapidly.”
There are many spiritual sons of the Kingdom who will be revealed in 2019. Presently many of them sit in darkness. They are not in darkness to satan…this darkness is denoted by one “not yet being revealed”. It is a place of spiritual development and of being “processed in private” by the Holy Spirit for greater usage by God.
In traditional photographic processing, color negative film would be taken into a dark room to be developed into a usable image. Many who have been fervently seeking God feel this way. They love God and are fervent in prayer, serving the Lord with a pure heart. They have a divine calling upon their lives but feel that they are in obscurity or being under-utilized in ministry. They are only in a “dark room” season waiting for God to reveal Himself through them to the world.
Also, in the dark room certain chemicals are applied to the photographic media to make it permanent and resistant to certain elements that could erode the image. God does something similar in the wilderness and backside of the desert seasons in our lives, where He washes away sin, issues of the heart, and false mindsets that could be counterproductive to our spiritual walk. This is the place in God where He deepens our roots in Him so that we not only run the race, but finish the race. God not only wants revealed sons, but He wants sons who finish well—that we may say like the Apostle Paul said in 2 Timothy 4:7-8, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith…”
David’s “Mighty Men” were lauded for their great acts as warriors. Their feats were supernatural and made them heroes of their time. Before they were celebrated as David’s “Mighty Men,” they were numbered with David in the cave of Adullam. 1 Samuel 22:1-2, “David therefore departed thence, and escaped to the cave Adullam: and when his brethren and all his father’s house heard it, they went down thither to him. And every one that was in distress, and every one that was in debt, and every one that was discontented, gathered themselves unto him; and he became a captain over them…”
The same men who were described as “distressed, in debt and discontent” were developed in the dark room of the cave of Adullam and became mighty men. The story of David’s mighty men is an archetype of how God moves sons who sit waiting in darkness of obscurity and development…to be transformed by God to become revealed sons.
One mark of the revealed sons of God will be that they operate in a remarkable and notable level of the gifts of the Spirit and the power of God. This will cause them to stand apart from mere motivational speakers and crowd-pleasers. Many will go into churches, communities and nations demonstrating the reality of Jesus through mighty signs, wonders and miracles. Daniel 11:32, “…but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.” People will say, “This man, this woman, they really KNOW God,” due to their great exploits and acts of revealing Jesus Christ.
The gifts of the Holy Spirit will be coupled with the power and presence of God. Gifts and callings come without repentance (Romans 11:29), but the glory of God doesn’t. The presence and glory of God are conditional upon the minister being in right relationship with God. In past times, we have seen ministers with remarkable gifts who strayed from the straight and narrow path, and even though their gifts remained, they never walked in the presence of God and fruitfulness they once experienced. Revealed sons will operate in the gifts but increase in God’s presence.
