A Great Building Anointing Is Being Released!

Are you called to build something? If so, now is your kairos time. This morning, I heard the Lord say, “Arise and build,” for He is releasing a great building anointing!

After hearing this, I began studying Nehemiah chapters 1 and 2 where this phrase “Arise and build” is located. As I studied, the Lord showed me 7 keys to this building anointing that you’ll need to know in this hour:

1) The King sees your sorrow about the waste places of your life.

The things you have been through are not things you will forget. The Lord has used them as a forge to refine you. However, sorrow is not the end of your story. The Lord sees your sorrow, but He is using it NOW to push you forward into your restoration.

Note that you will have to cooperate with His pushing in order to benefit from His building anointing. You will feel the squeeze, but you have to choose to take the only way out You see that aligns with His Word–even if you never wanted to go there.

Be very careful that your steps align with the Word. But, as long as they do, look for a pathway to open up as you allow Father to squeeze you out of the narrow place into a broad place of prosperity. The squeezing is from the Lord; He is forcing your hand so you will follow Him.

Psalm 32:8-9 says:

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. Do not be like the horse or like the mule, which have no understanding, which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, else they will not come near you.”

2) You have access to this building anointing by virtue of both COVENANT and MERCY.

In Nehemiah 1:11, we see the first reason Nehemiah knew God would prosper his efforts to rebuild Jerusalem: mercy. This passage says:

‘O Lord, I pray, please let Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant, and to the prayer of Your servants who desire to fear Your name; and let Your servant prosper this day, I pray, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man.’ For I was the king’s cupbearer.”

Nehemiah petitioned God for mercy and help, and he got what he requested. God’s mercy is abundant and He is always ready to pour it out. Remember this when you think of what YOU are called to build.

Then, in Nehemiah 2:20, we see the second reason that Nehemiah knew his efforts to rebuild Jerusalem would prosper: covenant. This Scripture says:

So I answered them, and said to them, ‘The God of heaven Himself will prosper us; therefore we His servants will arise and build, but you have no heritage or right or memorial in Jerusalem.'”

Nehemiah knew he had a right to be in Jerusalem because of God’s covenant with Abraham. This centuries-old covenant entitled him to all the protection, all the provision, and all the help he needed.

It’s the same with you. No matter what God is calling you to build, you can and will succeed by virtue of His covenant and mercy. It is God’s covenant with you plus His mercy toward you that produce a doubly-strong force of anointing in your life, if you will accept it.

3) He will provide all you need.

When Nehemiah asked King Artaxerxes for help, he asked BIG. He asked for diplomatic protection, letters of recommendation, building materials from the king’s forest for the city gates, the city wall, and even his own house. Nehemiah then records the king’s response: “And the king granted them to me according to the good hand of my God upon me” (Nehemiah 2:8b).

God provides from His goodness for the poor (Psalm 68:10). His goodness and mercy are limitless, and He says “Ask, and it shall be given you.” If you will be bold and ask for what you need, Papa God will provide it.

4) He will release His warring and enforcing angels to accompany you.

Nehemiah 2:9 records that Artaxerxes sent “captains of the army and horsemen” with him to his building project. These warriors and horsemen served two purposes: protecting the caravan and enforcing the king’s decrees as written in his letters of recommendation.

When you start building God’s projects, His holy hand comes upon you to protect and enforce His will. He also releases warring and enforcing angels to ride with you. Yes, there’s warfare–but the protection the king sends is more than adequate to handle any warfare that comes your way. Those captains of the army wouldn’t have been with Nehemiah if Nehemiah hadn’t stepped out in faith. His willingness to launch actually brought him the protection he needed.

5) The King asks you, “How long will your journey be?”

God’s commands carry both an instruction and a timing. And unless He specifically says “Do it later,” He means “Do it now.” If we hear His instructions and then wait to obey, that time period between hearing and obeying is actually a period of disobedience.

Deuteronomy 1:2 tells us that it was an 11-day trip from Horeb to Kadesh Barnea–but then says the haunting line, “Now it came to pass in the fortieth year …” (Deuteronomy 1:3a). Some of us have been hearing, but not obeying, for years. Do you want to go around the mountain 40 more years–the time of another generation? Or, will you arise and build?

I believe the Lord is sounding and re-sounding His wake-up call to each of us: “How long will it take? How long will you be away? How long will you delay in His work?”

The King’s business requires haste! O God, let us take up Your urgency!

6) Take a few like-minded people with you. However, discern carefully when to keep your dream silent and when to talk about it.

When Nehemiah did his most important strategizing, he did so at night, in secret, without an audience. Only the essential people were with him, and no one knew the depths of what God had placed in his heart (Nehemiah 2:12).

I believe in this time that the Lord is brewing some ideas that require the pressure of hiddenness to come to full-term. It is only in the closed embrace of the womb that a preborn baby can grow. Outside the womb, that baby would die.

Likewise, in this time, the Lord is pouring out His building anointing–but some of the things He needs you to build are secrets. They are just between you and Him, and they will actually lose power if you talk about them. Don’t make that mistake.

When God gives you a secret dream, ask Him if you should talk about it or not. If He says no, then don’t make a clamor about your idea. Just ride the wind of the Spirit in silence where necessary, and He will birth your building project.

7) You will have lonely times and slow times.

You have endured reproach. Your enemies have been laughing at you. But you know what? Inside the manifestation of your dream, their laughter cannot reach you.

Beloved, I feel the Lord showed me that you have been a reproach because you haven’t been occupying the land God intended you to occupy. God’s people were only a reproach when their city lay waste. But when they rose to build it, honor came upon them! So beloved, wait no more! God has called you to build His land. I repeat: It is HIS land, and it has lain fallow long enough. He needs His people in it.

Along this journey and before the dream is built, those who are not in agreement with you will laugh at you and despise you. They will even call it rebellion. Be prepared for this. However, remember that the horsemen of Heaven are with you and God Himself has commissioned you. The God of Heaven will prosper you!

Beloved, the Lord is pouring out a great building anointing. This anointing came upon Nehemiah in one moment of travailing prayer, and the walls of Jerusalem were rebuilt as a result. Likewise, Father God is willing to give you this special anointing NOW if you will ask Him for it.

Pray this simple prayer with me:

“Father God, in Jesus’ name, I yield myself to you for Your glory, and for the sake of Your great name. Pour out Your great building anointing on me right now. Use me to build whatever You want me to build in the time You want me to build it. Help me put my hand to the plow NOW to do whatever You need me to do.

Father, let there be no more delays; no more procrastinating; no more fear of man; no more hesitation on my part. Give me Your holy sense of urgency–the same sense of urgency You feel, and help me to obey You no matter what. Thank You, Father. In Jesus’ holy name, amen.”

Beloved, God’s Word says you have received what you just asked for (Matthew 7:7). Therefore, take heart. Let faith rise up in your body, soul, and spirit right now and arise and build!

    Yes, Jamie. The Lord told me I was not ready. I ran around doing things. Then, He said, “I will show you the view from the top.” I realized I was running around doing the trivial things. Then, a hint of the top appeared and I saw what I needed to do to build. I think your Word is a great confirmation. Thank you. But don’t be distracted from your wee laddie and your family. I pray for you and your family, too.

    I came from church to receive a prophecy sent by a brother in another state that God has called me to build. His words were a confirmation but when I saw this post on my email, I had to finish up the reading. I’m saving it for further meditation and prayers

    Thanks Jamie

  11. Good word. Man the squeeze is tough….. God bless.

  12. Many years ago I believed the Lord spoke to me and I have held that word in my heart ever since. The Lord said to me “If you build it they will come.” This word you have given has reminded me of what the Lord spoke to me. I believe God is going to release His anointing suddenly. Bless he word of the Lord. May you be blessed in Him.

  17. Jamie, I almost couldn’t get past #1. God’s been telling me He will build up the waste places, but they are still there. And then you started talking about feeling the squeeze. There are parts of my life that I fear may be destroyed by the squeeze. I only hope they come out better. Thank you for the prayer at the end. By the time I read through the whole thing I really didn’t know what to say but that was short and perfect. Thank you.

  18. Folami fawehinmi says:

    Jamie, you thoroughly blessed me with these words. Actually, we are in the throes of acquiring our church land and build. But, I as the the lead pastor and some faithful members are going through the squeeze but we are encouraged now as we have received the building anointing. Pray along with us.

  19. Keesha Ezell says:

    Hello Ms. Jamie
    I tell you Father GOD will send the right message at the right time. Although this was written in 2018 I feel so much of an urgency right NOW for this word in my life. Thank You So Much for Your Obedience!! For bringing a then NOW Word to NOW. Continued Blessing!! I Receive this WORD for my Life NOW!!! Prophecy is Timeless!! I LOVE YOU FATHER!!

  20. Marie Forkpa says:

    Thanks so much for your words of encouragement. I believe that you were taking to me. I have moved to a new environment far from my church. I have been commissioned to start a ministry there.
    God has been good and has provided us a land. I have been trusting God to let us build a structure before the rainy season. The challenge has been lack of finance to build.
    Just last week I decided to start little by little with my Megan resources. As what ever that will be done, will not be undone, it will only be added up.
    Reminding me of Nehemiah’s story has just made me more zealous.
    God bless you so much.

  21. Development comes from ruins. Yeshua reigns forever. Amen
