You hear a lot of prophecies about suddenlies. I’ve prophesied suddenlies myself. But the Lord showed me another dimension of His moving—immediatelies.

We see the concept of “immediately” well over 100 times in Scipture—and there’s a marked difference between a suddenly and an immediately.

A suddenly is a “happening, coming, made, or done quickly, without warning, or unexpectedly,” according to, while an immediately is “without lapse of time; without delay; instantly; at once.”

When it comes to moves of God—God’s intervention in my life—I’ll take either. But I’d prefer an immediately—a miracle. You might say suddenlies are good, but immediatelies are better when you need prayer answers!

Of course, there are also demonic immediatelies and our own immediatelies to explore. There are immediate threats, immediate prophetic fulfillments, immediate spiritual shifts and more.
