Miracle City Global
Danette Riley. Father, you are welcome in this place and we thank you that you’re here with us. We thank you that your entourage from heaven is here in this place. We thank you for what you’re doing and what you’ve done. I thank you for your women and the divine call-up, your Now Women that you’ve called into this place. I thank you, Father, that it’s not by might nor by power but by your Holy Spirit.
I thank you, Lord, that this is on you and it’s so free, that you carry us. And that as this word goes forth, it will do what you send it forth to do. Father, I just honor you. Praise you, Jesus.
If you’re in this place, it’s not by accident you’re here. We believe in divine appointments, that the Lord calls those that are to be here, that He brings you in from the north, the south, the east and the west and He has something for all of us tonight.
I want to lay some background so we can run together and you’ll know where I’m coming from. I don’t follow the Hebraic calendar, but the Hebraic calendar is in me. The more I’m with the Lord, the more I think like a Hebrew.
We are in the year 2019. Hebraically we are in the year 5779, Ayin Tet. Ayin is eye and Tet is 9 (nine). Those numbers correspond with the Hebrew alphabet. When you hear me refer to 9 and 9s and where we are, you’ll know what we’re talking about.
The Hebrew letter Tet is like a womb. Inside this womb is a coiled-up snake. So it’s a container. Where we are Hebraically, and with the decisions that we make, we can pour out good or we can pour out bad. It’s where we are at this point in time. Time and Eternity have met. We are in Now Time. We are in Kairos Time. So Time and Eternity have met and we’re on a crash course for Destiny. It’s where we are.
Eternity and Time have met and we’re on a crash course for Destiny.
Father, I thank you that we stand in the house and we are like the sons of Issachar; we know the times and the seasons. I thank you this is Now Time and as a son/daughter of Issachar, the ninth son, we know what time it is.
The Lord said, “Now is not the time to not know what time it is.” it is so imperative that we know what time it is. He is calling us up. He has sent me here to tell you that He is calling His Now Women into the Gate. He’s calling us, His Now Women, into our prepared place. The Word tells us there is neither male nor female, Greek nor Jew. We worship God who is Spirit and He wants us to worship Him in spirit and in truth.
There are those of us who have been hidden. We’ve been in caves. Either we’ve hidden ourselves in the caves or we’ve been hidden by the Lord. He is now calling us up and He is now calling us out.
Hidden Figures. Go Figure.
Hidden Figures is a phenomenal movie. I knew the movie was prophetic and that He was calling me out of the cave. That was late 2016, early 2017. He said, It’s time for you to come out. The call on my life has been a long time. When Nancy (Pitts) said, Practice being yourself; you’re a horse of another color, that spoke to me. We don’t get together on these things. That was the deal: Practice being yourself. And, we are horses of another color.
He began to talk to me in 2017 about coming out and stepping into the prepared place. It’s such a deadly thing to compare ourselves to others, when they’ve been preaching for 20 years or whatever, when it’s your time. I say to you, it’s Now Time, not just for me, but there are others of you. You’ve got to know it’s your time.
The first woman I want to talk about is one of the ladies in Hidden Figures. Her name is Catherine Johnson, an awesome trail-blazer. In this movie, she and others were called Human Computers. They broke every barrier—the female barrier, race barrier (she was African-American). They were brilliant women. She was able, with her team members, to actually run the numbers, by hand, that put Neil Armstrong on the moon in 1969. And they did many other things, also, these hidden figures behind the scenes, and the Lord began to bring her out.
In the movie she was in a boardroom with all men, whose jaws dropped, because she had the answer, and the gift made room for her. I hope I’m making you want to watch the movie, because all these hidden women, it was their time.
I mentioned we’re in the year 2019, 5779. There’s a pattern. The Lord has been working with me with 9s. Everyone at Miracle City knows me and it’s all about the 9s. His handprint is all over the 9s. Nine is birthing, a womb. When it’s our time, He’s calling us to step forth and bring forth. He’s going to deliver. We’re going to birth what God has put in us to birth. Nine means complete. The Phoenician word for 9 means wheel.
Right now we are in Adar II. There are 7 leap years in 19 year cycles. We are in a leap year and Adar II is a pregnant month. So we are pregnant in ’19. And we have 99. The letters that make up 99 is Amen.
So, this woman is 99 years old, and NASA honored her by naming a building after her. That’s one of the patterns—99. Remember, Jesus left the 99 for the one. Billy Graham died at 99.
There is a shifting that has taken place. There were those who talked about the shift that took place when Billy Graham died. Shifts. This past Wednesday, there was a shift. It was the 20th, the first day of spring. I was in my driveway and I saw the pages of a book turning. And the Lord said to me, It’s a new day dawning. I started hearing the lyrics, Morning has Broken.
Then He said, You have stepped into the Page-Turner Days. It means when you get a really good book, it’s a page-turner. We have stepped into the Page-Turner Days with the Lord.
Early on He told me to look at the 9s, and to look at 1969. It didn’t register with me that it was the year of the first man on the moon. I had no idea. But He’s telling us it’s the Launch Time. The Lord gave Betty the word Launch. Before He gave her the word launch He talked to me about launching.
(To Betty) As the apostle of this house, we have Launched in many ways. I’m honoring you as the apostle of this house, and as the shoulders I’ve stood on, with many others in this place and across this state and beyond. Because you broke the ‘sound’ barrier, and you broke the glass ceiling, (preaching) that’s one thing I have never thought that I couldn’t do. I said, If Betty can do it—and the Lord’s let Betty do it—then He’s going to let me do it. I have many other issues, many; but that was not one of them. I thank you from the bottom of my heart, because you’ve laid down your life and paved the way. And we’re coming behind you.
The shift has come and each one of us has a place in the Body of Christ. Not everybody is called to five-fold ministry. But whatever your place is, the Lord is saying, Places. Places. Places. Take your place.
I see the canopy of the stars and I’ve heard Betty and Anna say it, We are in a Revolution of Revelation. We are in a Revolution of Revelation. He is revealing the hidden things. Out of that container, that Tet, that womb, He is revealing the hidden things—not only in us, but in His Word. In Adar II, where we are, the money was hidden in the fish’s mouth. We are to search out the hidden.
He said, It’s the glory of God to conceal a matter, and the glory of the king to search it out. I love to search Him out. He will give me a tidbit and I’m like a dog with a bone. I’m on it, because I want to search Him out. I want to know what He’s doing. He said, Seek ye first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto us. And He loves it. He wants us to know Him and seek out what is hidden.
It’s all about the 9s and the horses. He led me to Secretariat, the famous racehorse. He won the 9th Triple Crown and also the 99th Kentucky Derby. All of these 9s kept popping up. The fair in Jones County was the 99th fair. There’s something about these 9s. It’s the completing of a cycle. There are so many cycle completions that are happening.
Mrs. Gail Gilbert posted on Facebook a post of 9 women, nurses, in Maine who are pregnant. We are in a time of bringing forth. It’s a time of delivery. It’s Delivery Time. A famous saying we have around here is, You just can’t make this stuff up! You can’t make it up!
This morning I was leaning in to where He wanted to go with the Hidden Figures, with women and what He’s called us to do, The 19th Amendment to the Constitution gave women the right to vote. In this pic Alice Hall is sewing the state star into that flag. This was 99 years ago. With that 19th Amendment giving us the right to vote, the Lord is saying, Your vote matters. Your vote counts. He is calling us to find our voice. Step into the Gate. And find your voice. That’s what He’s asking us to do. He wants us to hear His voice.
The play on words with Secretariat is, In the secret is where it’s at, with Him. Secretariat, in the secret place with Him. We hear His voice, and then we find our voice. For years my voice had been stolen. As a prophetic person I see down the road, about other people, places, things. My concerns are out there. But the Lord will reel me back in and say, Danette, this is just as much about you as it is about everyone else.
Part of what makes this so beautiful is this: I’m on a joy ride with Him and the 9s and what He’s doing. There are so many—9 gifts of the Spirit, 9 fruit of the Spirit—we all like the gifts but we need to be producing some fruit. He wants us to produce fruit.
But He led me back to the 9s, about me, a few months ago. At the age of 9, it was the first time I stood on the platform at church to begin to sing, and I couldn’t. The enemy stole my voice. Now, it’s not that way anymore! But I had a yellow dress on, Betty, with little wheels on it, little wheels.
It wasn’t just at that time, but it was in that process, that the Lord led me back to places where the enemy had stolen and that he was giving back. So this is very much about us personally. I found my voice because it’s His, and He’s given it to me. Every road and every life is different.
Some people can say, Well, you’re 53 years old. What happened to all the before? Was it wasted? Absolutely not. Not one divorce. Not one heartache. Not one heartbreak. Not any of it. Because the Lord has been preparing me. He has been bringing me. He has been shaping me in the fold of His garment, because I was hidden there with Him.
He says, Come out of the past and don’t stay there; don’t live there. It’s a trap. Nothing is wasted when we give it to Him. Nothing. I can stand here tonight and tell you I am not moved by the thoughts and opinions of man. I’m not. I can tell you that. This didn’t just happen today, because I found my voice. I’m not afraid.
When you are called to a five-fold ministry office—and we are called to certain places—the office to which I’ve been called seems to take a lot of beating up, not that God’s done it. But the Lord wants you to do what he wants and it’s going to be His way. And when you stand and He gives you a word from Him, it’s His Word. And you have to be able to deliver it. So the vessel gets beaten up. It’s the way of the cross. We have to die to our self-love, self-will and self-ambition. We do. Then He’s able to trust us.
For years He couldn’t trust me because I was a wild horse. I had to learn. I had to get beat up. God doesn’t beat us up. But when we do not obey the Lord and we go our own way—He said choose life and blessing or death and curses. It’s Jesus and obedience. He is a good Father, a loving Father. And I wouldn’t trade any of it. I wouldn’t. Because He’s awesome; He’s amazing. He’s a wonderful Father. He’s my friend, and loves me. He loves each one of us.
Another Hidden Figure was Sybil Ludington. We remember Paul Revere, ‘The British are coming. The British are coming.’ That did happen in April of 1775. But then there was this story that was hidden about a young girl named Sybil Ludington. On April 26, 1777, this 16-year old girl left home at 9 o-clock at night to warn the militiamen in Danbury, Connecticut that the British were coming. A 16-year old girl. I’m not downing men. I’m past thinking they’re the enemy and I love my husband. I submit. He’s got a call on his life and praise God, I’ve got one on mine. So this little girl rode all night long because she knew the roads, to warn the militiamen in Danbury that the British were coming.
He’s calling us up to say, Jesus is coming! Jesus is coming! He’s calling us up. He’s calling us out. He’s calling us into the Gate. Because He is coming back and He has raised us up as His righteous remnant, His army. The cavalry is not coming. They’re not. You know why they’re not coming? Because WE are the cavalry! He is calling us up into the Gate to take our place because of what He did at Calvary.
It is a divine call-up. It’s a divine send-out. It’s Now Time. It’s Now Time. It’s Now Time. It’s Now Time. It’s Now Time. I hear His trumpet. He’s blowing reveille, as in the military. He’s telling the troops to Wake Up, Wake Up, Wake Up. He’s calling His daughters to Wake Up, Wake Up, Wake Up, Wake Up, Wake Up, Wake Up, Wake Up, Wake Up. Praise you, Lord.
Sybil finished the ride. She warned them. Now I’ll tell you the other side of the story. Paul Revere and his counterparts got arrested. Just saying! It did happen that way.
He’s calling us up. He’s calling us out. And He’s calling them up and out, too. It’s not a separate thing. Just know that He’s calling us all into a prepared place, whatever that place is.
So, why Sybil? Why the American Revolution? Why is He taking us back? He is taking us back because He works in cycles and He works in circles. He’s taking us back to look and look again, because everything He’s had me look into and go back to, He says to look at it again. It’s like this Tet. It means one thing, but then it also means another. He is multi-layered and He is multi-faceted.
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people that He may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. Betty’s been preaching this for 30 years, I Peter 2:9. A lot of the Word that I know is because we’ve heard it. Faith comes by hearing and by hearing the Word of God.
But you, we, are a chosen generation. So take that to heart. We are chosen. There is something about where we are now. We are able to reach back into the generations and we’re able to reach forward. When the ladies who were sewing on that flag decided we deserved the right to vote through the 19th Amendment, this is what they did. There were two bells, the Liberty Bell and the Justice Bell. They are identical but with two different purposes—Double.
The ladies put the Justice Bell on the back of a truck and took it throughout Pennsylvania. They were not going to allow that bell to ring. The clapper was stuck to the side of the bell on purpose because they were not going to let the bell ring until they were able to vote. When the bill passed and we were able to vote, the lady named Catherine would not ring the bell. She asked her niece. She passed it off to the next generation to ring the bell. Because it is generational. It’s not just about us. And it’s not just a good thing to say.
The Lord said what we do in the next 70 days determines the rest of our lives, the course of our lives. That’s how important this time is. The Lord gave me a notebook of word to carry me through the time because if your situation is anything like mine, we have an enemy who wants to come in and ensnare us when it gets Now Time. I’ve come through hell and high water to the birth canal of some things, in portions of my life this last year. And I’m a tough cookie.
I know I’m a forerunner in a forerunner house, so if it’s happening here, I know there are some battles you are facing and it feels like you may not make it through. I know about hope deferred places. I know about depression. I know oppression. So I am standing here tonight and He is, too, to pull you up and pull you out and pull you through, because you will not die. You’re going to die to yourself and you’re going to live and declare the praises of your God.
He has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. He is calling you up and He is calling you out. You are coming through. What was intended to destroy you, you are going to trample on. The very thing that tried to take you out is what is going to be used to take you into your promised land. We all have a promised land and we are going in. I’m going in. I’m going in.
Now is not the time to quit. Now is not the time to back up. Now is not the time to listen to what the news says, or anybody else if they are not saying what the Word of God says to you at this point and juncture. I don’t care who it is. That’s how pivotal this time and moment is.
On the night of April 26 at 9 p.m. in 1777, Sybil Ludington, rode all night on her horse named Star to warn the militia that the British were coming to Danbury, Connecticut. Esther also means star. We have just finished Purim. And in the whole book of Esther, God is concealed. His name is never mentioned in the book of Esther. But His Providence is all in the book of Esther. Esther was concealed until the moment it was time for her to speak.
We are in a time that He has concealed us until it’s time to speak. When it is time to speak, then we must speak. Because if we do not, there is no telling what is hanging in the balance. Just remember Esther. Just remember if you had not made the 70 Day Decree, if you had not listened to what He said. February 9—all about the 9s. April 19—God is all about the 9s. Rosh Hashanah—9/9. The Day of Atonement—9/19. It’s all about the 9s.
There is something that is completed and something that is beginning. All of these intersections. He’s making sure that we get it. He wants us to get it. In this 9th hour, the Lord is raising up a company of women, who are apostolic, prophetic midnight riders, trained to take out midnight raiders—who aren’t afraid of the dark because they’ve been trained in the dark. I’ve been trained in the dark. I have night vision. I’ve been through hell and high water. We’ve been trained at night because the Lord knew what it would take for us to be able to stand in this hour.
We need people who will go into battle with us and not quit and go home when they break a fingernail. He is raising up hidden stars to fight with the stars by the stars. Esthers and Deborahs will stand up in this hour like never before, those whose only desire is to bring glory to the Bright and Morning Star. He’s not interested in superstars. Those days are over with. He is removing people from platforms because Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the King of Kings and He is the Lord of Lords.
Voices who are interested in self-promotion, who are greedy, and it’s all about the money and the fame, it’s a no-go. He said, I am interested in those who want to make Me famous, not themselves.
From the heavens the stars fought. From their courses they fought against Sisera. Judges 5:20. We have help. We have help from His sanctuary, His angel armies, the stars. That canopy of stars—it’s about to get live and wild. I believe that with all my heart. Star Wars. I’m just saying, The Lord is about to show out.
Eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man. We cannot even conceive what He has planned. I believe business is going to pick up—the thunderings, the lightnings, the display of who He is. When He speaks, He breaks cedars. When He speaks, deer give birth. When He speaks, things happen.
He is raising us up in His likeness because we are His children. He is raising us up as His children. He is enduing us with power—prophet, priest and king. The righteous remnant is about to see the kingly anointing mantle rest on us to dismantle hell. We’re going to need some help. That’s why He wants us to be clean. That’s why He wants us to lay down our lives for Him, so that He can mantle us to move and do the greater works. Praise you, Lord.
He is releasing the sound of His bell into the earth, calling His hidden ones into the Gate. You’ve been hidden under the shadow of His wings for this glorious time. He will use you to destroy what tried to destroy you. As Sybil—I looked up the name Sybil. Her name means oracle or prophetess. You will hear the word of the Lord in the secret place and run with it, heralding the return of our Bridegroom King.
Ludington means settlement or estate. You will ride as a revolutionary ambassador representing King Jesus, His settlement and His estate. He is taking you were no man or woman has gone before to boldly proclaim, Jesus is coming. Jesus is coming.
At midnight the cry rang out, Here’s the Bridegroom. Come out to meet Him. Matthew 25:6. We’re going to be ready. And our job is to make sure everybody else is ready.
He said, You have been made ready to answer the call on a moment’s notice. This is the Minutemen and Minutewomen, the Watchmen He’s called onto the wall, so that we are available.
We are voice-activated by our Father. He said, I am raising up a people who are Voice-Activated, where you do not respond to the voice of the enemy. You respond to the voice of the Lord. And as Ray Hughes put it, When we are about to go into the heat of battle, the horse does not respond to the fray of the battle. The horse responds to the squeeze of the knees. That’s what he called it. So we are going to respond to the squeeze of the knees because our Father, as we lean into Him, we are at a place like no other.
The days are here. He wants all of us to know His voice and do His will. He wants a relationship with us. He created us as part of His family, because He wanted a family. The days are coming, and they are here. We need a now word. I have to have a now word from Him. I can’t call Betty or Anna or any of you and say, What’s the Lord saying?
I must hear Him for myself. We all must hear for ourselves what He is saying. That doesn’t mean we don’t need each other and that we don’t confirm the word. That’s not what I’m saying. He wants us to hear Him so that we can obey Him and move when we need to. Because He is raising up as As-One Army.
You will not be moved by the thoughts and opinions of man. You’ve come out of the wilderness leaning on your Beloved. And we are sent ones. Paul Revere—Paul means small or humble; Revere—those that revere the word of the Lord. Not to be afraid of Him, but that we have a holy reverence and a fear of God. That’s what He wants. He doesn’t want us to be afraid of Him but He (wants us to revere Him.)
Mercy triumphs over judgment. It does. But judgment does come. Mercy runs out. He’s already foot the bill. He sent His Son. Jesus has died for us. There will come a time for those who say, No; mercy will run out.
He said, Because you have honored the Lord, and have submitted to Him and His process, the plans and purposes for your life, you will go forth in power and will carry His glory in unprecedented ways. The world didn’t give it to you and the world will not be able to take it away from you. There is a reward for those who obey the Lord.
The sound that He’s been releasing to us is one that cannot be heard by human ears. Everybody hears the earthquakes when they sound. But He’s been releasing an Ultra-Sound, a sound that you can only hear when you lean your head on His chest so that you can hear Him. About a year ago I saw Him with a stethoscope to His ears, and He had the stethoscope to the earth. He wants us to hear Him.
I want to close with Whitney Houston’s song, One Moment in Time. It is so relevant as to where we are. This is one of my life songs. That’s the song I had when I was going down the highway and nothing was right and all I had was enough, because I had His Word.
One day you’ll stand. One day you’ll deliver the word. One day is here. He honors His word. He does what He says He is going to do. He is faithful. He is true. And at the right time, the appointed time, the opportune time, is when these things happen. So take heart and be of good courage. He has not left you. He’s not going to leave you. He’s here.
One Moment in Time
Each day I live I want to be a day to give the best of me.
I’m only one but not alone. My finest day is yet unknown.
I broke my heart for every gain. To taste the sweet I face the pain.
I rise and fall yet through it all this much remains.
I want one moment in time when I’m more than I thought I could be.
When all of my dreams are a heart beat away and the answers are all up to me.
Give me one moment in time when I’m racing with destiny
And in that one moment of time I will feel eternity. I’ve lived to be the very best.
I want it all. No time for less. I’ve laid the plans.
Now lay the chance here in my hands.
Give me one moment in time when I’m more than I thought I could be.
When all of my dreams are a heart beat away and the answers are all up to me.
Give me one moment in time when I’m racing with destiny.
And in that one moment of time I will feel eternity. You’re a winner for a lifetime.
If you seize that moment in time, make it shine. Give me one moment in time
When I’m racing with destiny and in that one moment of time, I will be free.
