New ‘sounds’ break old cycles – Sounds flowing out create change in the atmosphere. Sounds flowing in music. Words of declaration coming forth from your life. Rising to a new place is greatly influenced by the words we speak or the sound that emanates from our lives. There is power in what we speak. There are many creative ways of expression that bring forth a new sound in the earth today. New sounds break old cycles, yet before they do, they often have to confront the current sound that pervades the atmosphere around them. Christ in me, the hope of glory – my sound goes forth from the reality.
By the way, new sounds do not solely belong to a young generation. Age has nothing to do with this. Gender has absolutely nothing to do with this. A new sound rises up from the depths of one’s being, overflows into the atmosphere around them, and challenges the status quo, which often says, “Don’t rock the boat!”
New sounds break old cycles! Prophetically speaking, this is the entrance into breakthrough. It starts with the sound that permeates the atmosphere in varying ways and degrees of influence.
A word of advice:
Don’t pull an old sound into a new sound through confrontation, comparison, or contradiction.
Stay with me as I prophetically work this out. Hear me by Holy Spirit. Lots of you need to hear this because freedom comes through a new sound. Something in us is unlocked and set free. We need this. I need this.
Bring forth a new sound. In doing this, don’t constantly spend any time or effort in challenging or confronting the existing sound!
This is a waste of energy and can get you off focus. Challenge and confrontation by a new sound against an old sound will come through its own virtue. By the simple fact of what is being proclaimed from the Lord, the new sound will eventually confront and displace what is permeating the spiritual atmosphere. Be at peace with the new sound and be in the rest of the ONE who gave it to you to speak. Just speak and leave the rest to the Lord.
Bring forth a new sound. Don’t constantly compare the new sound to the old sound.
Comparison is a trap. People may draw you into comparison by intentionally or unintentionally try to instill doubt within you about your belief in your sound. They do this through words or remarks that imply “Really?” or “What if? or “Come on, do you really believe this?” Don’t let anyone mess with your mind. You have something to say from the Lord. Say it without comparing it to anything else or anyone else.
There may be a transition between an old sound and a new sound coming forth. In that transition time, we may tend to think we have to hold on to a bit of the old sound and let it intermingle with the new sound. Don’t. Break free entirely. But, but, but, we have not arrived at this point alone. I never think I have the whole picture. I journey in the company of those who have gone before me and those who will inevitably come after my sound is proclaimed. Walk in humility and grace, allowing the Lord to take His sound flowing through you, making it what He will of it and taking it where He wants it to go.
Bring forth a new sound. This new sound is not new to God’s ears but it may be new to our ears.
A new sound may appear to contradict the old sound, forcing these two sounds to contradict each other, to be at odds with each other. In the spiritual atmosphere there is a tension and an opposition that will arise from the clashing of two sounds. This causes dissonance. What is that?
Dissonance is a lack of agreement that may cause sounds to clash with each other. It may indicate the two sounds are at odds with each other.
This may or may not be the case. It may depend on the old not wanting to let go and make way for the new. Let’s not forget that Jesus Christ crucified is the foundation of any new sound. He is the testimony and the life in every prophetic sound. Move in unity and grace. Allow the new sound, ordained by God, to move out in breakthrough, allowing the Body of Christ to go to its next appropriate level. Humility and grace in God’s people will allow a flow to go forth like a river, making a way through the darkness bringing light and hope into the earth.
(I am trying to bring forth words that are spirit and life to those who read. Perhaps you read this and don’t have a clue what I am talking about here. Well, take a few insights applying it to your life in Christ. That will be very good. To those, who, by the Holy Spirit, catch what I am saying, know this. So many of us have to break free of old patterns, old cycles, old ways of thinking – to break out of a place of invisibility, out of the hinterlands – to come forth and take our stand in Christ for such a time as this.)
In Christ, Debra Westbrook
