ISAIAH 31 SAYS:
“Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, who rely on horses, who trust in the multitude of their chariots and in the great strength of their horsemen, but do not look to the Holy One of Israel or seek help from the Lord. Yet he too is wise and can bring disaster; he does not take back his words. He will rise up against that wicked nation, against those who help evildoers. But the Egyptians are mere mortals and not God; their horses are flesh and not spirit. When the Lord stretches out his hand, those who help will stumble, those who are helped will fall; all will perish together.”
“This is what the Lord says to me: As a lion growls, a great lion over its prey – and though a whole band of shepherds is called together against it, it is not frightened by their shouts or disturbed by their clamor – so the Lord Almighty will come down to do battle on Mount Zion and on its heights. Like birds hovering overhead the Lord Almighty will shield Jerusalem; he will shield it and deliver it, he will pass over it and will rescue it.”
I believe that for 2017 the Lord is telling me that it will be a year where he calls the body of Christ away from relying on earthly things that are seen in the natural and will call us to focus on things that are seen in the spiritual. I believe that often times the believer has difficulty pressing into the spiritual because we stay so focused on the natural. Because of this I believe that the first thing that the Lord is going to do in 2017 is pour out a season of prosperity. The reason for this season of prosperity is to remove any worries or barriers that are stopping the saints from focusing on Christ Jesus alone. As a result of the season of prosperity I believe that the body will begin to sing a new song. I believe that a season is coming where the church will receive the John the Apostle call from Revelation 4 to “come up here,” with the purpose of gaining revelation into what God is doing in the earth. In the throne room of heaven the book of revelation tells us that there are lightening’s, thundering’s and voices that are coming out of God, and it is those lightening’s, thundering’s and voices that strike the living creatures around the throne and cause them to sing Holy Holy Holy day and night. They are broken by the revelation coming out of God. I believe that the church in 2017 will have an opportunity to be broken by the revelation of the throne room and they will move with knowledge of the enemies planes and the revelation of God’s plans to oppose him.
I also believe that as a result of these “come up here,” meetings that the Father is going to give key insight into the ways in which we (the body) has given legal right to the enemy in the areas of our lives, our finances, our marriages, our children, and most importantly this territory. The enemy has waged war over this territory for hundreds of years and has waged war over the lives of the saints for generations. I believe that in 2017 the back of the enemy will be broken and that we will enter into a season of breaking of the generational curses that exist over the people and we will be in a supernatural season of dislodging the legal right the enemy has had over this territory.
In my prayer time I see a people a blaze with the power of God and burning with an everlasting fire of holiness. Just like it is written in Isaiah 33: “’Who of us can dwell with the consuming fire? Who of us can dwell with everlasting burning?’ Those who walk righteously and speak what is right, who reject gain from extortion and keep their hands from accepting bribes, who stop their ears against plots of murder and shut their eyes against contemplating evil – they are the ones who will dwell on the heights, whose refuge will be the mountain fortress.”
In 2017 I believe the people of God will gain revelation into what it means to “dwell with the consuming fire,” and to “dwell with everlasting burning.” I believe this will come in 2017 based on a release of the anointing of Holiness. I believe that the body will be called to a place of repentance and a renewal of sinless living. I believe that this will come with an increased focus and desire on intimacy with God. Not just a seeking of the Holy Spirit and gifts, but a resting in the arms of the Father and a revelatory connection with the person of Jesus.
For Revive church I see an unquenchable fire engulfing the building, but the building is not consumed, and on the building I see a giant red cross on all sides and the roof. I believe that Revive church in 2017 will be consumed by revelation and spiritual enlightenment and will be known in the region as a spiritual hospital. Men and women will come from all over the state to receive healing both physically and spiritually. People who were burnt out will come and find rest.
2017 will be a year where:
- The church will put their hope in spiritual things rather then earthly things.
- The church will be in a season of prosperity.
- The church will put the focus on intimacy with Jesus.
- The church will be given the “come up here” invitation.
- The church will receive the call to Holiness.
- The church will be in a season of dislodging the legal right the enemy has had over our lives and the territory.
- Balance will be brought back to the church nationally in our desire for intimacy and our teaching of the Word of God.
