This is a year of war, but we must remember that God already told us that we go from glory to glory. He didn’t say that we go from glory to glory, unless it’s a time of war.
We MUST use our voice to have victory.
There is a time for everything under heaven, and it is not a time for peace. It is a time for war. However, we have to know that we can have joy, peace, and rest even in the middle of war.
We need to ask God to teach our hands how to war.
Worship will be very important this year because worship is one of our weapons for the war. Do NOT say, “Peace, peace” when there is no peace. This will be a year of division, not unity and not peace. It’s a year of separating the wheat from the chaff. We need to decree over our states: “The sword of the Lord is here.”
We can expect God to give us a new currency this year. Ask Him how YOU can multiply this new currency.
Phil Wickham’s album: Hymn of Heaven is my theme music for the year. Especially the songs: Battle Belongs, House of the Lord, and Where I’m Standing Now.
God brought you out to bring you in. Out of Egypt into The promised land
2 enemies I’ll have to conquer
1. Satan and his workers
2. Myself (an un-renewed mind) It took God 1 night to get them out of Egypt but 40 years to get their minds right.
Jesus has already purchased the inheritance/promised land for us. We just have to adjust our mindset to obtain it. Your inheritance is LEGALLY yours but it’s not LITERALLY yours because there’s giants in the land trying to keep you from getting your inheritance. What you don’t claim the enemy gets to keep.
When God sends you into the land to get something from the enemy it’s because it belongs to Him, not you. If you don’t go get it, the enemy gets to keep Gods stuff. If you don’t go in, you’re fired!
What kind of inheritance do you work for? If you work for it, it’s not an inheritance. You don’t pray for an inheritance. You claim it! The prodigal’s brother was jealous because the prodigal claimed his inheritance, waisted it, and then got it back again. The other brother didn’t realize that he could’ve claimed his too.
This is a year to understand inheritance. And inheritance is a gift. It’s not earned. In fact, if you earn it, it is not an inheritance. God has an inheritance for all of us and we just need to spend time in his presence every morning and ask him how to obtain are inheritance for that day.
Jesus can command the fish to jump into the net. He can put a coin into the fish’s mouth. Jesus IS Jehovah Jireh. So we need to seek him every morning through his word and then through sitting at his feet in our secret place (wherever you pray) I am NOT the work I put in. My work doesn’t define me. This isn’t the year where you’re hoping the door opens. This is the year the door/gate IS open and we just have to walk through and occupy.
I’m transitioning on my path. In this transition he’s going to reveal signs and wonders to me on my path. IF I keep seeing and following His signs and wonders, I’ll end up in my promise. If I’m too introspective or self centered I won’t see my door of promise.
We need to begin growing our own food. I am researching heirloom seed companies right now so that I can help you get the seeds you need. In 2013 John Paul Jackson said the day is coming when genetically modified seeds will suddenly not grow anymore. We must be securing heirloom seeds. Heirloom seeds are God made seeds. They have not been genetically modified or altered, or chemically treated in any way. Other seeds have been altered, modified and chemically treated! But but, there’s a lot of shadiness in the industry of heirloom seeds, so wait until I finish looking into them before you purchase anything.
This is the year of the judge. In this year of the judge, there’s going to be a war over the Supreme Court, and how that goes is how the country will go. It’s not about the presidential election.
This is the year of the double door. This is a year to make sure I hit the door at the right time like a revolving door where you have to walk through at precisely the right time. Ask God to align our instincts with the Holy Spirit so we’re always at the right place at the right time.
We have to live and think supernaturally this year. This decade we HAVE to speak. We need to tell the enemy, one of us is coming through and it’s not you.
When you don’t hear anything, just keep going. God is big enough to course correct us when it’s needed. If we’re doing our best to seek Him and follow His will, then He’ll make sure we get there.
Let the Lord come up with your WOW factor. God has given each of us something that is remarkable. We have a WOW factor that God will shine through. Ask Him what your WOW factor is.
Some important scriptures for this year are:
Isaiah 22:22 I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.
Deuteronomy 7:9-11 9 Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments. 10 But
those who hate him he will repay to their face by destruction;
he will not be slow to repay to their face those who hate him.
11 Therefore, take care to follow the commands, decrees and laws I give you today.
John 17:13-19 13 “I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. 14 I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. 15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. 17 Sanctify them by[a] the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
26 “‘But the court will sit, and his power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever. 27 Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of all the kingdoms under heaven will be handed over to the holy people of the Most High. His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey him.’
Two of the speakers mentioned Daniel chapter 7 as being important this year.
Worship, humility, and obedience are keys to opening the door of promise.
Do NOT BE AFRAID, but…Something is going to be unleashed on the world this year, and nothing will be able to protect you from it, except for the glory of God. Think of the glory of God like a bubble surrounding you and nothing can penetrate that bubble.
Whenever the Holy Spirit is mentioned in scripture, movement is connected to it, wind, water, fire…movement. We must keep moving to experience the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.
Chaos is going to increase this year. But for God’s people, the God of peace is rising in us. God is going to give us the frequency to shatter the chaos of the enemy. We’re in a “voice activated doors season”.
God LOVED Jacob and hated Esau because Jacob was willing to do anything to get the promise of God. But Esau thought so little of God’s promise that he sold it for a meal. Jacob wrestled with God to get it. He told God I will not let you go until you bless me! He even got injured in the wrestling, but he held on until he was blessed. He had hutzpah. This year is a year to have hutzpah! Jacob got Esau to sell his birthright because he valued it so highly.
This year there are some important questions to pray over:
1. Who is being worshipped?
2. Who is making laws?
3. Who controls the supply lines?
In the secret place the lord will show us how to multiply. God is going to give us victory in the valley. Worship is going to be so important this year!! When it’s dark out it only takes a little bit of light to scatter a whole lot of darkness ( like a flashlight).
I have to remember that because of Jesus I’m seated in victory. Humility, obedience and surrender to God will give me victory. I have my sword (God’s Word). Use it.
This year it’ll be life and death as to whether or not we listen to the still small voice and obey it. God will speak through my gut. Listen to those God-given gut feelings and instincts. That’s part of why our DAILY time with the Lord is so important. It tunes our senses to be sensitive to His most gentle promptings. We need to stop asking for confirmation after confirmation after confirmation. That’s childish. We should be past that.
You’ll have a gate that you’ll go through in a moment. This year is all about: Going through your gate of Promise. Leading up to this year we’ve been warring to secure our promise. Decree this over yourself: “There is no distraction that can pull me from my abiding place. He is the source of everything I have.”
At First Fruits (the beginning of each Hebrew month) look at what’s in your possession, and then give God the best that you can give from what you have. Your First Fruit offering is in addition to your tithe. There are no religious rules regarding what you give for your First Fruit offering.
We need to always remember to seek The Kingdom FIRST, and all “these things” will be added to us. If you get stuck somewhere, go back and evaluate whether or not you were putting The Kingdom first. Then, just fix what went wrong.
This is a year for us to speak it and THEN our eyes will see it. Take a look at what thing in your life has come into completion since Passover? Go ahead and let that thing go. It’s complete. Don’t keep trying to hold on to it.
Celebrate all the feasts mentioned in Scripture. Celebrate with God and then little by little you’ll secure your land. Each feast provides us with something we need to prosper. That’s part why Jews are so disporportionally successful. If you will celebrate God’s feasts even your enemies will invite you to eat. The enemy will loosen his grip and release to you what you need. Psalm 23 is the picture of this.
