A Word for Sweden
Tuesday 15 February 2011
A Prophetic Word, spoken over Sweden, November 2009, after people have been seeking God for a word for this nation!
Sweden is one of the keys for Europe coming to the Lord. You could say… as goes Sweden, so goes Finland and Norway and other nations in Europe.
Many prayers have been sown into the land and these will not return void. There is a darkness over Sweden that will clear. Part of Sweden’s original destiny from the Lord is to showcase purity and simplicity and there is a time coming when there will be a backlash against humanism and revival will come to the church. Sweden will be more than a conqueror through Christ and this land will show forth the manifest presence of the Lord.
Sweden will be a nation that is a harbinger of spring (as a robin sings of the new life of spring). Sweden will “sing” in strength of the new thing of God and will trumpet inward and outward of His grace and mercy. She will be a living harbinger of the goodness of God. His river is increasing there and will be full to overflowing.
Many churches were seen coming to life and even new ones will spring up. Some of these were seen coming out of darkness and becoming bright with the truth of Jesus.
Their lamp-stands looked like they were dusty, but the light was beginning to shine and become brighter. God destined Sweden to be a nation that proclaims the gospel of the Kingdom.
They also are a nation destined to be a voice of one crying in the wilderness to prepare the way for the coming of the Lord. Isaiah 55:1 is the Lord’s wooing to Sweden.
“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.”"
