God’s wonder women are the key to unlocking the fullness of outpouring into the Earth, an outpouring that will only come to the world through the people of God.

While watching the movie Wonder Woman with my family, I sensed the Holy Spirit present a series of prophetic thoughts directed at what He is doing in women in this generation.
The Lord is handing out swords to women in this hour! A sword represents authority. A sword qualifies you to fight. A sword is not a shield. A shield is defensive, but a sword is offensive.
In the spirit, I see the King of glory knighting women with swords, as if to authorize them to offensively advance the Kingdom into spheres of society that demand solutions only Holy Spirit can provide. When men carry these solutions, half of the assignment is being accomplished—and that’s great. But when the Spirit was poured out, men represented only half of the containers purposed to carry God’s glory, power, and strategies into the Earth; women are the missing link. I believe God’s wonder women are the key to unlocking the fullness of outpouring into the Earth, an outpouring that will only come to the world through the people of God.
Women Will Bring Solutions to Society
The Lord is releasing women from the restraints of the “Women’s Conference Circuit.” As daughters of God, you carry messages, anointings, talents and leadership abilities that are purposed to bring solutions to problems. It’s not just solutions for women; it’s solutions for both the Body of Christ and society at large.
For too long, Christianity has perpetuated a “women’s conference” mentality, where anointed and gifted women “preachers” are given opportunities to share what Holy Spirit has put on their hearts—but in a restrained setting, women-to-women. Yes, continue to have women’s conferences. Yes, continue to ensure that women disciple women. The problem is this cannot be all there is.
I prophesy that the hour is at hand where women are going to be released from exclusively speaking to women. Because they have been “knighted” by their Father in Heaven, I see the daughters of God arising to boldly declare the Word of the Lord to the Church and release supernatural solutions into the broken parts of society.
The Lord is releasing mantles to women. A mantle was passed from Elijah the prophet to Elisha, his successor. In Charismatic circles, we have this picture of receiving someone else’s mantle. I want the mantle of Wigglesworth or I want the mantle of Kuhlman. This cheapens what mantles are, as they are not for a human being to give, nor are they exclusive property of one person or another. Mantles are God’s to give and they represent supernatural power for specific assignments.
The Spirit is not passing out mantles based on the qualification of gender. Women of God, if you read historical examples of men serving as catalysts for national awakening, for engaging cultural crisis, and shifting the course of history, I sense the Holy Spirit is asking you a question: Do you want it? How do you know that God might have one to give you? Simple.
• What problems in society or the Church particularly burden you? Do you have a passion to bring solutions to these issues?
• What stories and historical figures cause your heart to burn? Those past examples are testimonies of what measure of change and transformation are possible through an able and willing man or woman.
