“And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” Then He said to another, “Follow Me.” Luke 9:58-59 NKJV.
“Now these are the ones sown among thorns; they are the ones who hear the word, and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.” Mark 4:18-19 NKJV.
I heard the voice of The LORD saying: “This year there will be many reversals in The Kingdom.
The last will be first, and the first will be last. Those who have been shoved aside, and put down by sensual church government systems, and have overcome their bitterness and pride will be exalted, because they will put ME first. I have preeminence in their hearts, not men.
This year I AM taking home many heroes of the faith, in the eyes of the people, for I have an army I AM calling forth that will not bend to mammon. I have an army that is humble and uncorrupted by the riches of this world.
They will not make the Church like a Luxury Hotel that only the rich can afford. Those who refuse to help the poor even in their own congregations will have their doors shut.
Many Churches will also go bankrupt this year because they built according to world systems and standards.
Many of those who have been in forefront of ministry will find themselves learning humility again.
Those who really care about people, who are the Davids, whose hearts are like Mine, will come to the forefront in ministry.
They will not be waving their own flags. They will do it in humility. Not wearing luxury garments, nor living in mansions, nor driving luxury autos. But they are RICH in ME, and even their shadow will heal the sick.
There will be no more ‘Luxury Hotel’ Churches in the sense of what has gone on in the past.
Those who will BEND to My Will, will be blessed and reap great rewards. But their hearts will NOT be after the riches of the world except to be a help to others.
They will not STORE UP RICHES for themselves, but be GIVERS. I WILL ADD to the Joseph’s in your midst and they will help the poor in powerful ways.
Persecution of the truly RIGHTEOUS will ensue as revival breaks forth. Jealousy will become
magnified in many hearts.
The FIRE I AM bringing will not only change hearts, but will be passed on to those who are humble in heart, and transform others. Those who have been willing to be purified by FIRE, will receive FIRE.
Those who have been willing to lay down their own WILL and do what I WILL, will go on to impart to others with great compassion and power.
But I will limit those who will only use it for SELF GLORIFICATION. I will no longer allow self centeredness, and self aggrandizement to flourish among My own.
I WILL BE LIFTED UP. I WILL ARISE to bless the Josephs that I have had in hiding and training for many seasons.
The wages of sin is DEATH. I will remove the cords of death off of hearts who have been repentant but found no relief in the Church.
I will answer the cries of My people for FREEDOM. CHAINS will fall off forever! GRACE, GRACE and more GRACE will fall like RAIN upon all who have been oppressed yet maintained humility.
God haters will be turned to Jesus this year as never before because of the release of signs and wonders.
Prayers for the sick, will be a corporate matter. Those who pray together for the sick, in unity will find miracles in their midst.
I will bless those who show love when everything in them wants to fight. Yes, when you do the right thing, even though you don’t feel like it, it starves out the demons abiding in your soul.
Self control over self indulgence will be the order of the day and of necessity for anyone who wants to survive the financial crisis of the times.
Acceleration of the new world order is being planned. Acceleration of MY ORDER is also being implemented.
The dark grows darker, but the LIGHT of My FATHER inside of My People will grow STRONGER also, and impart to them OVERCOMING POWER.
A great SHIFTING is taking place in the heavenlies, and in the earth.
What was will no longer be. What was hidden will now be revealed. Wisdom and Understanding of My HOLY SPIRIT will be imparted as never before ! Illumination of scriptures, discernment and words of knowledge and wisdom will abound in those who have chosen the narrow way.
The sons and daughters of many who have been prodigal will return to My Fold. Church as usual will be done away with in the true Church, and extraordinary miracles will abound.
Many will be shocked at who I choose to do the work of the Kingdom. VANITY will be destroyed.
Mercy will triumph over judgment. Many will repent of their ways, and others will try to go on in their old ways and find themselves wrestling with Me.
The Spirit of MIGHT will come with the FIRE of GOD, and great LOVE will accompany it.
When it comes upon those I’ve chosen as apostles and prophets, and evangelists, they will BURN with sharing the gospel, and they will be compelled into the streets and byways.
They will share the gospel with great creativity and compassion for those afflicted and broken. Still many will mock and hate Me, and they will be persecuted and many they will try to kill, but they will rest in the shadow of MY WINGS. I AM their COVERING!
Famine is coming and those who are wise will store up for the good of not only themselves but many others. Actually it’s began years ago, steadily increasing.
Men who have helped in the plans for that will be struck down if they do not repent. You will see many in high places fall who have designed destruction to My People.
Insurgency will increase, and terrible crisis after crisis in the world. But My GRACE will be sufficient for you who call on My Name.
The warfare has increased significantly due to the rise of lawlessness. You cannot afford to be a loner anymore.
You must depend on one another for encouragement and prayer, edification and exortation. A man who isolates himself is a fool I’ve told you.
Networking with others on internet will increase. Praying for each other will increase as crisis after crisis releases need for the prayers of others to help support yourselves.
Networking in cities will change. The Church will become more unified as the FIRE of My Love increases.
The Church will learn to really BE the CHURCH that it was in the first century hiding and helping one another.
Madness and insanity are increasing as people go on and on in their OWN ways. But he who relies on the Almighty will abide in the shadow of His Wings.
The twisting serpent has grown, but I will give LASER SWORDS to those who are intercessors to cut through the cords of the beast on others.
If any man be in CHRIST, he will be a NEW CREATION. He will be transformed. BE bold in the power of MY MIGHT!
For many who you thought were impossible to save will be saved! The prodigals are coming HOME to My heart!
Watch and be in awe at the salvation of your God! To those who have been faithful, even though not free yet, I will be FAITHFUL and TRUE!
The enemy has been working overtime to make you feel disqualified from this great blessing. But I AM the AUTHOR and FINISHER of your faith!
I will perfect all that concerns you. Though this year will escalate tribulations, there will also be GREAT VICTORIES and JOY will spring forth for all you see that I do in your midst. Tears will fall as many are judged.
Abide in ME beloveds and I will abide in you. TRUST in ME, and I will entrust to you great riches of MY KINGDOM.
You are my jewels, the delight of My heart, and nothing is too big for Me.
Only BELIEVE that I Love you, and will care for you no matter what happens. Then you will be able to stand still and see the salvation of your GOD.”
“Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? And if you have not been faithful in what is another man’s, who will give you what is your own? “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” Luke 16:11-13 NKJV.
“And when Jesus saw that he became very sorrowful, He said, “How hard it is for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God! For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”” Luke 18:24-25 NKJV.
“Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, storing up for them-selves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.” 1 Timothy 6:17-19 NKJV.
“By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward.” Hebrews 11:24-26 NKJV.
“Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days.” James 5:1-3 NKJV.
“Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of The LORD of Sabaoth. You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter. You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you.” James 5:4-6.
“For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying,’What is like this great city?’ “They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.'” Revelation 18:17-19 NKJV.
