Andy Sanders – Year of Shock Therapy is Coming… Jan 8, 2017

Posted on January 25th, 2017 by by embassyoffice

“A Year of Shock Therapy Is Coming Upon the Earth” Andy Sanders, Syracuse, NY

Without a doubt, 2016 was a most amazing year in many respects, but I must say that with of all the good and bad events that occurred there was one that will potentially stand out for a very long time. Though I am not a baseball enthusiast, my family comes from a long history of the Chicago Cubs fans, and so when the Chicago Cubs won the World Series for the first time in 108 years it grabbed my attention, along with many around the world. The fact that so many have come and gone over the years waiting for that historic moment—undeniably, it was a delight (and shock) in so many ways.

With a lot of recent historical events happening in the world, it is apparent that the earth has given birth to something new in the coming years. So many changes in such a short time points to a global revolution. I sense that the earth is about to be impacted with some of the most unique “shockers” many of us have ever seen—from political realms and economic shifts, to Church history being made, all the way to natural unplanned events coming on the earth. The globe we trod on every day is about to be given some shock therapy in this year, and the treatment plans are prescribed by the Great Physician, Jesus Christ.

“As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.” (James 5:11 NIV)

Brace For Impact

Moving forward this year, the words “Brace for impact” seem so surreal. Unlike a plane crash, where the captain says “brace for impact” because disaster is imminent, the impact is more about the power of Christ bringing life back to where death has reigned. This is what I’m calling “shock therapy.” This year will bring a full year of shock therapy where God is bringing back to life the dead of our lands across the earth.

Being brief, there are many areas that this will affect. It is like a water dam that has been illegally built to stop the flow of good water, a source of life, to those in dire need. God is breaking open the dams of life this coming year, and it will be done through profound ways in order to shock the earth. This reminds me of when someone is having back trouble and they trip over a rock on the sidewalk, suddenly bracing themselves only to discover that the abrupt jolt to the body was exactly what was needed to pop their back into alignment.

There are many unpredicted blessings (sudden jolts) coming across our paths in 2017. These are events and occurrences that will be a shocker to the world, nations, America, and to individuals all over. But in the end, it will be like God’s gentle chiropractic care, working the kinks out while massaging the healing oils in.

“Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.” (Psalm 34:5 NIV)

Do not be alarmed if the enemy attempts to entangle and ensnare at higher levels than normal because what is coming upon the earth will cause the enemy to steadily flounder. When the enemy raises its head, it is out of fear and in an attempt to scare us. It is like a big blowfish that puffs up in order to intimidate its enemy. There are a lot of events getting ready to happen that will roll the heads right off of the enemy’s shoulders.

Shock Therapy – Come Back to Life!

Many unremembered and long forgotten prayers will be answers in this coming year. I am referring to the ones that you stopped praying about years ago because the hope faded after too many moons to count. The prayers and dreams that we tucked away a long time ago, God is shocking them back to life again in 2017.

There are two explicit areas I want to address for this coming year. Before addressing each, let’s learn a little about an automated external defibrillator (AED). The defibrillator device checks the heart, and if it is out of normal rhythm or has stopped beating it will send an electrical shock right into the heart in order to bring it back in sync with the body again. Equally, 2017 is like God checking the heart of the matter on the earth, shocking it back into place to have a proper pulse that beats for Him and nothing else.

Here are the two realms:

1. Shockwaves will Move throughout the Political World System

There will be indescribable shock waves moving throughout the global political system this coming year; the occurrences will be one event after the next. In many ways this has already begun as listed here:

• Trump’s Presidential Win
• Harry Reed Retiring
• Fidel Castro’s Death
• South Korea’s Presidential Impeachment

If I can describe what I am a seeing, I liken it to one beat after the next, each pulse resonating through 2017. The global-political realm is on God’s patient list for a consistent dose of AED treatments.

2. I Hear the Lord Say over 2017, “I Am Shocking My Church Back to Life Again.”

Have you ever tried to remove baked-on grime? It doesn’t come off through soapy water; it is removed through intense pressure, heat, and/or concentrated chemicals. Chemicals strong enough to sometimes burn the skin. The cleaning process might be difficult, but the end result is that the cookware is cleaner than before and is usable once again. Just like cleaning a dish—if it doesn’t need to be cleaned then don’t clean it.

Similarly, something doesn’t need to be shocked with an AED if it is already alive and well. It must be shocked if it is dead or dying. Dreams and visions once set aside because of timing concerns will be shocked into sync right before our eyes.

“And provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.” (Isaiah 61:3 NIV)

Let’s take a look at another form of shock treatment. This is an ECT or electro-convulsive therapy (brain shock therapy). Like all parts of the body, the brain can sometimes malfunction due to various reasons, which include traumatic, unforgettable events in life. One common treatment for severe depression is ECT. Under some circumstances, mental shock therapy is needed. This is where ECT treatment is applied to the brain and seizures are induced under a doctor’s care while the patient is under anesthesia.

There are several theories as to what exactly ECT does to the brain. In simplistic terminology, it radically and quickly alters chemicals and the way information is transmitted (hormones, neurotransmitters) within the brain in order to remove/alter/replace the bad areas (memories, depression, schizophrenia, etc.) with better sequences of energy, sleep, eating habits, thoughts, mood, and outlook of life. If done properly, you have the same brain but different thinking patterns.

God will both shock the way we think and the way our hearts beat for Him in this new season. He will consistently apply both the AED to the heart and the ECT to the brain of the Body of Christ this year. Same heart, more consistent pulse for Him and same brain, supernatural understanding! This isn’t a spanking from the Father; instead, it’s a resurrection into life!

God Will Restore Your Life!

The end result of 2017 is that He is awakening our being to a greater understanding of Him. He is also removing the hindering thoughts of fear, doubt, and other bondage that so easily try to hold back revelatory faith and supernatural living. Battles are often in the mind and the Lord will be teaching us how to act, speak, think, and believe again.

“In that day I will restore David’s fallen shelter—I will repair its broken walls and restore its ruins—and will rebuild it as it used to be.” (Amos 9:11 NIV)

Some readers have recently had some really horrible circumstances come your way. These events may have been completely out of your control, and I want you to know that I have been there and it can be unbearable at times. Especially when you did everything in your power to do what was right and it still fell apart. I am a living testimony of how He somehow restores.

For some reading this, God will tenderly bring you through His specialized treatments in order to give you closure and peace about your past (or current situation), allowing you the grace to move forward. God will restore your life, giving you hope to move on again in 2017! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

Elaine Tavolacci – Word for 2017 – Get Ready for an Upgrade

Posted on January 25th, 2017 by by embassyoffice

“Word for 2017: Get Ready for an Upgrade!” Dec 7, 2016
by Elaine Tavolacci, Staten Island, NY

On Thanksgiving evening, the Holy Spirit began to reveal some things to me concerning the New Year. This is what He showed me: just as there is a changing of the guard in the White House and president-elect Donald Trump has many cabinet positions to fill, the Lord is looking for many positions to replace in seats of great authority in spiritual gifts (1 Cor. 12:4-11), as well as the five-fold ministry of the Body of Christ. (Eph. 4:11-12).

Many prophetic voices will be raised up from the pit to the palace. Get ready for an upgrade.

Then the Lord said: “Let your voice be heard.” There is a seat that is assigned to each one of us. When we find our seat, we will then rule and reign from that place. It is not about control or manipulation, but it is rightfully taking your Kingdom position. In that place there will be no division or competition as we will understand our true identity.

It is not about self-promotion or trying to make a name for ourselves, but those who work together will speak as one voice and walk in one accord. The right hand will know what the left hand is doing as one hand washes the other. They will do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility they will value others above themselves. They will not be critical but will have compassion rather than judgment against those who don’t know the Lord.

True prophets of God as well as other prophetic voices should not be silenced or mocked. As the Scripture says, “Do not touch My anointed ones; do My prophets no harm” (Psalm 105:15). The Lord will speak not only from the podium but from the pit. He will speak through a donkey as well as a burning bush. Those who know the voice of the Lord will discern between the holy and the profane (Ezek. 44:23). They will not just speak with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, therefore our words have creative power. The Holy Spirit will give voice to His word through His prophets in this hour. They shall decree a thing and it shall be established. The Lord is going to raise up teachers who know the Word of God and will release revelations (treasures) from the Old Testament as well as the new (Matt.13:52).

Healing and the Miraculous

Then He showed me some things concerning healing ministries and the miraculous. I began to read about those who were lead by a cloud by day and a fire by night, and they were fed manna which the Lord supplied daily. The great men and women of faith in the Bible such as Moses parting the Red Sea to Elijah being fed by ravens and raising the dead. Elisha received a double portion of Elijah’s anointing and God used him to perform miracles beyond human comprehension. Joshua commanded the sun to stand still and it delayed going down for a full day.

In the same way, men and women will be used of God, and those who know their God will be strong and do exploits in this day. All creation is waiting in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed (Rom. 8:19).

Jesus is going to visit us and manifest His glory in extraordinary ways. He will speak to us in dreams and visions as well as through miracles, signs and wonders (Matt. 10:8). Many will be healed as the need is so great. Just as blind Bartimaeus cried out to Jesus to have mercy on him and Jesus replied, “Your faith has made you whole,” we will have personal visitations and invitations just as Zacchaeus experienced as he climbed a sycamore tree to see Jesus walking by. Jesus saw him and said: “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” In this same way, Jesus is going to visit our homes and many will experience personal encounters with Him.

Jesus tried to explain to His disciples about His death, resurrection and that He would not leave them alone but He would send the Holy Spirit after He left (John 14). In verse 12, He said: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.” The Lord is about to release the “greater works” in the earth today.

In the book of Acts as the disciples assembled together in the upper room, suddenly there was a sound from Heaven as a rushing mighty wind, and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each one of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

There will be gatherings where Believers will allow the Holy Spirit to have His way. They will not limit God and not submit to the religious man made traditions. The presence of God will fill the sanctuary and His train will fill the temple.

There will be those who are carrying the presence of God, and His presence will be in them and surround them. People will be healed in that anointing in the same way Peter’s shadow healed the sick. Just as God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them, we will once again see the eyes of the blind open, the deaf hear and the leapers healed.

“Just as it was prophesied in Joel 2:28 and Acts 17, ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams,’ it shall come to pass in these last days,” says the Lord.

Job 12:22, “He reveals the deep things of darkness and brings utter darkness into the light.”

Job 22:28, “You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you; so light will shine on your ways.”

John 14:12, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”

1 Corinthians 2:4-5, “And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

John Eckhardt – Making up for Lost Time Dec 20, 2016

Posted on January 25th, 2017 by by embassyoffice

“Making Up For Lost Time: God is Releasing His Catapult”
John Eckhardt, Chicago, Illinois

The Lord says, “Even as men built catapults to launch over obstacles, I’ve also built a catapult in the spirit. My prophetic word and prayer is about to catapult many of you into a place you’ve never been before.”

The Lord says, “My word is coming like a catapult. Even My prophets are going to minister prophetically. As they prophesy, as they pray and as they preach, you’re going to find yourself being catapulted over obstacles and walls that you could not seem to get over. Many have said, ‘This obstacle, this wall, is too high I can’t seem to get around it, or through it, or over it.'”

Catapulted Into Your Destiny – Into Your Future!

Yet, the Lord says, “Many of you will breakthrough the walls but for many of you, it will be like a catapult.”

The Lord says, “I’ll catapult many of you into your destiny, into the next season, into the next year, over the walls and obstacles that would stand in your way. So get ready for Me to catapult you! I release My divine catapult upon those who are believing Me (for you) to be launched over. Even as this year was a year of relaunch, I’m going to not only reset but continue to relaunch people forward over the things that hindered them from moving forward.

“For many have felt like they’ve been trapped, or been behind. They’ve been saying things like, ‘I’m lagging behind. I’m not on the right pace. I need to catch up.”

2017: A Year of Catching Up

The Lord says, “Get ready! In 2017 it’s going to be a year of catching up for those who seem to be behind. I’m going to catapult you into your future and you’re going to find yourself catching up in destiny and years.

“Get ready to catch up. I’m going to accelerate and catapult you into a new place even in time. Get ready for My word to catapult you into a new place, into a new season, as I cause My prophets to prophecy.

“Even as My glory comes upon you in the month of December, as you believe Me for glory, as you walk in the glory, as you release glory, as you minister in glory, as you enjoy My glory and embrace My glory – My glory is going to catapult you into places you’ve never been before.

“Many will look at you and say, ‘How did you get here? How did you get over that obstacle? How did you get over your past? How did you get over your failure?’

“I’ve Been Catapulted by the Glory!”

But I, the Lord, say that you’re going to say, ‘I’ve been catapulted by the glory! My God has catapulted me!’

“Receive this word today!” says the Lord. “Allow Me to catapult you and even jump start some of you who feel as if your battery has died. It’s been a cold season but I’m going to jump start you. I’m going to get your engine running again. I’m going to get you moving again. I’m going to cause you to accelerate again.

“I’m going to cause you to go faster than you’ve gone before. I’m going to break you out of the stall that you’ve been in so get ready to be jump started. Get ready to be catapulted into a new place in the days to come!” (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

Bishop Bill Hamon – Open Doors…. Jan. 18, 2017

Posted on January 25th, 2017 by by embassyoffice

“Open Doors, Opportunities & Advancement Through God’s World War III Weapons” Bishop Bill Hamon, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

Word of the Lord for 2017

I started giving the “Word of the Lord for the year” in 1988. It was originally intended for Christian International Ministers. However, in the late 1990s, Cindy Jacobs and I, and several others, started the International Round Table of Prophets. After that we started giving a more corporate word.

The word I am sharing is from Christ’s letter to the Philadelphia Church, about us being granted an “Open Door” that no man or demon can shut. It is directed mainly to those who have ears to hear what Christ is saying to His Church, who are walking in all presently restored truth, and have volunteered to be a warrior in God’s newly activated, offensive and powerful army called, “God’s World War III.”

Psalm 110:3 says, “Your people will be volunteers in the day of Your power.” Or the NIV says, “Your troops will be willing on your day of battle.”

Right now, God is searching for soldiers of the Cross who are willing to volunteer for God’s WWIII offensive army. Jesus is looking for those who have level-four heart soil (Mt. 13:23), which have been purged from all weed-seed attitudes. They are righteous and fearless, for they have attained to level three of the overcomers—”They love not their lives unto death” (Rev. 12:11). God is going to give them His mighty strength (2 Chron. 16:9).

Jesus, as Commander-in-Chief of His army, is coming to put His mighty warrior anointing upon them to destroy the powers of darkness and demonstrate God’s Kingdom throughout the earth.

Revelation 3:7-13:
Letter to Philadelphia Church

• Open Doors (see verse 7): The Lord is saying, “I who am Holy and True, am also He who shuts and no one opens, and opens and no one shuts. I know your works, SEE, I HAVE SET BEFORE YOU AN OPEN DOOR! And NO One can shut it!”

In 2017, we have an Open Door: Opportunities never had before. The only judgment in this letter is if we do not go through the Open Door set before us.

• Open Heaven (see Deut. 28:12): If we are diligently obeying the “Voice of the Lord” then we have the blessings (vs. 1-14) and not the curses (vs. 15-68). The voice of Lord includes Logos, Rhema and personal prophecy.

• Open Earth: In the USA, we have been given earthly, legal and natural opportunities to arise and shine as the Church.

• Verse 7 continued: “Who has the Key of David.” The Key of David has three notches that unlock Christ’s purposes and provisions: 1. Spirit of Revelation. 2.Worship. 3. Warfare.

• Revelation: David had tremendous amount of revelation as revealed in his Psalms. David never had many visions, dreams or angelic visitations, but he had prophetic revelation more than any other.

• Worship: Worship to God was a love and passion of David. He knew the power and purposes of praise. He had the revelation that God inhabits our praise and is enthroned in power for us (Ps.22:3). (Pre-prayers of Jesus.) (Photo via Flickr)

• Warfare: David and Joshua are the two greatest Biblical warriors and generals in God’s army. General Joshua fought with his army and conquered Canaan for Israel’s inheritance and national home land. David fought with his army, extending Israel’s inheritance to its full borders as God promised to Abraham (Gen.15:18). In 2017, we are to war against our enemies until we fulfill our personal prophecies and possess our full inheritance.

• Joshua Generation: God is raising up a Joshua generation with the Key of David to fulfill all of God’s prophetic promises to Israel and His Beloved Church.

• War Angels: David learned how to co-labor with General Michael and his war angels in his warfare against his enemies (2 Sam.5:22-25). This is the day of God’s power, and His chosen ones are volunteering to be warriors in God’s WWIII.

Psalm 103:20-21 declares that God’s angels excel in strength and heed the voice of the Lord and those Saints who speak for their Commander-In-Chief, Jesus Christ. David is the only man that the Bible declares that he was a man after God’s own heart. We can be both God-loving worshipers and bold and fearless warriors.

 

• Verse 8: “You have kept My word, and have not denied My Name.” This reveals that we have not forsaken any restored truth and have maintained a balance in the truths of God. For 30 years, we have not denied His name as Prophet and Apostle, but have boldly declared and demonstrated that Jesus is still ministering in His Church as Prophet and Apostle. We are now manifesting Jesus as the Mighty Warrior and the Lord of Hosts/Armies.

• Verse 9: God is separating the Sheep from the Goats. He is going to favor those He approves as His Sheep and make the goats acknowledge that we are God’s true Sheep. God is going to start vindicating His own.

• Verse 10: This verse will be made a reality before the end of 2018. The world is going to be tested by the threat of a natural WWIII being activated with the potential of nuclear warfare. If we have persevered in Christ-like living and doing spiritual warfare for God’s purposes, “He shall keep us from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world to test those who dwell upon the earth.”

• Verse 11: “Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.” Crown represents your calling and ministry in Christ. Regardless of the persecution by the worldly church and the ungodly, maintain your calling regardless of the cost. (Memorize Romans 8:18.)

• Verse 12: If we overcome, Jesus will make us a permanent fixture (pillar) in the Temple of His God. Jesus will write on us the name of His God and His new name. That means He will not allow us to miss out on any new thing that He shall do with His Church on the earth and in Heaven.

• Verse 13: We must have open spiritual ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church in 2017.

Advancement Throughout History to Now

• 1st Reformation: 30AD-400AD: Church Birthed, established worldwide.

• 2nd Church Reformation: 1517-2007: Eight Major Restoration Movements.

• 3rd And Final Church Reformation: 2008: Rev. 11:15: “Kingdoms of this world become the Kingdom of God.”

Advancement of Restoration Correlated With Israel’s Journey: Egypt to Canaan:

• 1517 Protestant Movement: Blood applied—came out of Egypt.

• 1600 Evangelical Movement: Crossing Red Sea—Baptized.

• 1700 Holiness Movement: Banks of Red Sea, separated.

• 1800 Faith Healing Movement: Waters of Marah—People Healed.

• 1900 Pentecostal Movement: Water From Rock-Spirit Language.

• 1950 Charismatic Movement: Mt. Sinai—Body of Christ.

• 1988 Prophetic-Apostolic: Crossing Jordan—into Prophetic & Apostolic.

• 2007 Saints Movement: Preparation-Transition—7 Mountain Kingdom Influencers.

First Phase of Resurrection of the Dead Doctrine- Resurrection Life:

• 2016: Activation of the Army of the Lord into Offensive Warfare.

• 2020: First Phase of The Eternal Judgment Doctrine (Ps. 149:5-9).

• 2017: An Open Door with Opportunities for Promotion and Possessing.

• 2017 till His Kingdom is established: full ministry of God’s World War III. We will engage in spiritual warfare with Prophetic Acts of Faith, with God’s Weapon of Mass Destruction to powers of darkness, and satan’s army of wicked spirits. The Shout of Faith is the Church’s WMD.

DECREE AND SHOUT IT TO BE!

Jane Hamon – God Says …. Jan. 18 2017

Posted on January 25th, 2017 by by embassyoffice

God Says: I Will Turn Things Around! This is a Comeback Year!” Jane Hamon, Santa Rosa Beach, FL

You crown the year with Your goodness, and your paths drip with abundance. (Psalms 65:11)

Each year I, like many other prophetic people, take time to listen to the voice of God specifically to hear what His heart is for a new year, or a new season. I believe the purpose of this is to gain an understanding of God’s heart and purpose so that we can properly position ourselves in prayer and in perspective, standing ready to work with Him to bring the Kingdom of God to earth. In this Hebrew year 5777, it is a year of covenant blessing, a year of contending for favor, and a year of new spiritual wells of refreshing springing forth. The symbol for 7 in Hebrew resembles a sword, or a vav (that which connects Heaven and earth) with a crown on top of it.

This is a Crowned Year of God’s Goodness…Our Paths Will Drip with Abundance!

I hear the Lord decreeing that 2017 will be an incredible Comeback Year! “Comeback” is actually a single word meaning, “A regaining of success, fame, health, prosperity, recovery, to return to a former good position or condition after a loss, the act of making up a deficit as in a contest or game, to become fashionable again, a spirited, clever reply.”

It is a hopeful word which carries the connotation of a resurgence of good times, revival and times of victory. A “Comeback Story” is one in which someone succeeds against impossible odds, often through overcoming a time of struggle. It is the “come from behind” story that has everyone cheering.

It is the person who has failed time and again finally triumphing and attaining success. It is the underdog who may have suffered horrible losses and heartbreaking defeat, who through sheer determination rises above every barrier and obstacle to obtain the prize. It is going from a position of being broken down to a position of breaking through! This is a year to see setbacks turn into comebacks!

The number 17 is tied throughout Scripture to victory, overcoming the enemy and yes, spectacular comebacks. As the Lord spoke about a Comeback Year in 2017, I looked at Biblical stories which are full of people who seemed to have everything going against them—defeat, failure, sin—only to find they were the Comeback Kids of the day.

Moses was a murderer and a fugitive who became a deliverer and was known as a friend of God. Joseph was the dreamer, forgotten in prison in a foreign land, who became the prime minister of the greatest empire of the day. David was an adulterer and a murderer who became the greatest king Israel ever knew and whose legacy is that he was a man after God’s own heart. Job lost everything, through no fault of his own, yet God restored double of ALL that was lost. The Temple was destroyed but then rebuilt again twice the size with Babylonian money! Peter denied Christ three times but was used by God to preach to win 3000 souls on the day of Pentecost. Jesus—the greatest comeback story of them all—was beaten, crucified and killed, yet conquered death, hell and the grave and came back to life and is now seated with honor at the right hand of God! Wow!

With those great examples of comebacks we should all be excited about what is ahead! It’s a year to celebrate 500 years of Reformation…the comeback of the power and authority of the Church. It’s a time for continued and intensified Divine Reversals, which the specific emphasis this year of seeing some things turned upside down (which we will see actually means right side up).

It’s a time to see every curse reversed, the plans of the enemy upset and dead dry bones coming back to life! We will see a comeback in our nation, in our economy and of the voice the Church has to impact culture and shape the world. This year the authority of the prophetic voice of God will make a comeback to challenge us all to rise to new demonstrations of miracles and the supernatural and to occupy new places of authority. A Comeback Year is here!

In the Comeback Year, Divine Reversals Intensify!

At the end of 2014, I heard the Lord say we were entering a three-year period of time where He was going to do incredible miracles and turnarounds. The purpose of this period was going to be, “To restore hope to the Church so that the Church can restore hope to the world.” I believe that we are in the midst of some of the most exciting times of turnaround for victorious comebacks that many of us have ever experienced in our lives.

Then at the beginning of 2015 (the first of those 3 years), the Lord spoke to me and said, “Tell My people I am bringing them into a season of Divine Reversals. I will turn things around for them.” I was studying in the book of Esther at the time and saw the evil decree of Haman that was released to bring death and destruction to God’s people. Esther went before the king and the scepter of favor was extended to her so she could tell the king what was at stake. The king then told her to write a new decree in the king’s name and seal it with the king’s signet ring so that it cannot be reversed.

Then in Esther 9:1 it tells us, “On the very day when the enemies of the Jews hoped to gain the mastery over them, the reverse occurred: The Jews gained mastery over those who hated them.”

It was a massive time of divine reversal for the Jewish people. Their mourning was turned to dancing and their sorrow was turned to celebration and joy. Interesting when I looked up the word reversed in Hebrew it was the Strong’s Concordance number “2015”! It is the Hebrew word “Haphak” which means “to reverse, to overturn, to overthrow, to transform, to turnaround.” (Photo via the Elijah Shopper, “For Such a Time as This” by Donna Smallenberg)

We began to see Divine Reversals for people’s health, families, finances, legal situations, etc. We truly entered a period of time of Divine Reversals and turnarounds. Deuteronomy 23:5 uses this word haphak when it says, “I will turn (haphak) the curse to a blessing for you because I love you, says the Lord.”

We must keep our minds focused on the fact that Jesus came to give us a divine reversal in every area of our lives! From death to life. From sickness to health. From poverty to abundance. From sorrow to joy!

How 2016 Set the Stage for 2017 – A Year of Chaos and Contention That Brought Dry Bones to Life

In 2016, I looked further at this word and found the Strong’s number 2016 is the word “hephek” and also means reversal and turnaround, but it carries a connotation of a time of contrariness and opposition. We saw this clearly manifested in culture in 2016, a very contentious, contrary year in the earth.

During this year, the Lord spoke to me out of Ezekiel 37 where the prophet is told to prophesy to the valley of dry bones. The phrase “dry bones” comes from the convergence of three Hebrew words: shame, disappointment and confusion. The picture of a valley full of dry bones indicates a place of horrendous defeat in a past season.

The prophet is told to prophesy life to that impossible scene. As he did so, there was a sound of shaking as the dry, dead bones came to life. The word shaking in Hebrew means the sound of chaos and confusion.

Clearly, the contentious political battle in the US, racial unrest, economic instability, as well as political upheaval in many nations in the earth, brought a sound of chaos and confusion in the earth. Christian values found persecution and seemingly lost ground in the US and the west, while in other places in the earth Christians were being beheaded and persecuted on a new level. The anti-Christ spirit along with an anti-Christ agenda seemed to be gaining ground at the expense of religious freedom. But God was reversing death and turning it into life! The sound of contrariness and chaos was necessary for the dry bones to come together.

God told the prophet to prophesy again at this point, but this time he was to prophesy breath. This is the second wind of the prophetic movement, which we are currently in, that will transform the dry bones into an exceeding great army. It’s time for prophets and prophetic people to release God’s revelation from their mouths, calling those things which are not as though they were. Prophesy life! Prophesy peace! Prophesy reversals! We must open our mouths and speak it and decree it for ourselves to see it come to pass.

The Lord had spoken to me at that time that the Church was “out of breath”. He wanted to breathe new life into us so we can arise as that exceeding great army of Believers…a force for righteousness, justice and freedom in the earth.

The word used for breath is ruwach meaning “a violent exhale, bringing courage, releasing a prophetic spirit, imparting warlike energy and executive and administrative power, endowing men with various gifts, releasing the energy of life, releasing the manifestation of the Shekinah glory of God.”

In John 20:21-22 it says, “Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.’ And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit.'”

This is a time for us to take time in God’s presence to allow Jesus to breathe on us and fill us with His Holy Spirit again so that we are ready to release His breath in the earth. Allow His breath to transform every area of dry bones in our lives into a prophetic expression of warlike energy, power and life, which will release the Shekinah glory of God everywhere we go!

What a Comeback! From dry, scattered bones to an exceeding great unified army!

2017…A Year to See Upside Down Become Right Side Up

Which brings us to 2017. The word, “hophek,” which is the Strong’s Concordance number 2017, also means a time of reversal, but also means “to upset, to turn things upside down.” Since the world culture is already upside down, I believe God is decreeing this will be a year to turn that which is upside down right side up! It actually says of the early Church that they were known as “those who turn the world upside down” (see Acts 17:6. Also notice this verse comes from a chapter 17! Lots of chapter 17’s are about victorious comebacks). (Photo via Pixabay)

We are to be God’s change agents impacting culture through proclaiming what God is saying through building bridges of reconciliation in places of division and contention, and through praying God’s purposes of Heaven to connect with earth. “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven!”

The word “upset” has several meanings which speak to what is ahead in 2017. It means to overturn. God will overturn power structures this year (see Haggai 2:22). It means to perturb or to disturb mentally and emotionally. As the world is turned upside down, or right side up, we must position ourselves in the Word, in prayer and in peace. Peace is our portion. The joy of the Lord will be our strength. Do not allow anything to rob your joy this year. Things will be stirred up…remember it is a reformation year and often reformations are messy. Keep your heart focused on Jesus and His promises to us in the midst of challenging times.

But upset also means to defeat or overthrow an opponent who is thought to be more formidable. An upset is when an unrated football team beats the team ranked first. Don’t count yourself out! Don’t count others out! It will be a year of surprises! Don’t quit! Your time of the greatest victory is before you! Remember, your setbacks are merely setups for your comebacks! Great things are ahead! What setbacks do you want to see become comebacks?

Psalm 65:11, You have crowned the year with Your goodness, our paths will drip with abundance.

500 Year Anniversary of Reformation – The Church’s Greatest Comeback

On October 31, 2017, the Church will be celebrating the 500-year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation marking the day Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenberg church and declared “the just shall live by faith.” This event triggered a major shift out of the Dark Ages, where the then existing Church barely held any resemblance to the first century Ekklesia that Jesus gave His life for. It ushered in a time of fresh revelation and restoration, which was tumultuous to say the least, yet was a major comeback for the Church. Biblical truth made a comeback. God’s heart revealed for mankind made a comeback. The working of the Holy Spirit made a comeback. Relationship with God over religious form and ritual made a comeback!

This will be a Reformation Year. The spirit of personal reformation will bring Believers into greater connection and intimacy with the Father. Those who have gotten discouraged in their faith will receive fresh oil. Passion for Jesus will make a comeback for many! The challenge for this year is to allow God’s personal place of reformation to bring change in our hearts so we will be equipped to carry reformation into the places of influence in the world.

The anointing for Reformation will bring a spotlight on new Biblical truth and revelation so the Church can experience a resurgence of affluence and influence in nations throughout the earth.

Over the last several years, the Church has been divided, demoralized, disenfranchised and even demonized over social issues, political correctness and a drift from critical thinking based out of a Biblical worldview. Rather than being the source of light for our communities, the Church has been increasingly characterized, and yes, demonized as the problem rather than the solution.

I feel we are coming into a comeback season where the Church is going to get a bit of a reprieve from all the negative press. The persecution will continue as we live in a culture hostile to Christianity, however, I believe this gives the Church time to teach Believers how living their lives out of a Biblical worldview sets them up for triumph. At the same time, this apostolic/prophetic reformation will bring a greater divide between those churches who have determined to promote casual, comfortable, politically correct Christianity (in name only) and those who have decided to be the “army of the Lord,” willing to pray and yet also willing to engage culture to bring change.

In the US and other nations, we will see this reformation spirit bring change to government and governing. With the unanticipated “comeback election” of Donald Trump, we have the potential to see a reforming of the Supreme Court and other courts in the US, a reformation in the economy, a reformation in foreign policy and a realignment of nations, and many other areas of governance.

As was seen in the Protestant Reformation, this can be a very messy time. Some things will be turned upside down. It is vital for the Church to pray as never before for the President, his cabinet, governors and local government and spiritually steward the reformation taking place in the land. Our mistake will be to put our trust in a man to save us. We must pray for God’s wisdom on the man, but put our trust in the Lord. Our Appeal to Heaven to see reformation and awakening come to the Church and to our nation has just begun!

One more note on this subject…I heard the Lord say, “That which seems to be done can still be undone.” I heard this when I was praying about the UN resolution against Israel, but feel it has even farther reaching applications. What was meant for evil against Israel will be turned for its good. What was legislated to bring evil to our nation can still be turned for our good. We can personally apply this as well. Whatever the enemy has tried to use to make you feel trapped or hopeless, stuck in circumstances or situations that refuse to change…remember the word reformation means to change.

This will be a reformation year…a time of Divine Reversals and a time when every setback is transformed into a set up for a comeback! Believe and receive in Jesus name!
