2014 is going to be an amazing year. God is in the business of mobilizing His body. This year, ministries are naturally got to cooperate and partner with other ministries to a mature degree. The divisions between believers are going to be exposed and there is going to be a greater sense of unity for those listening to the Spirit. He’s mobilizing the bride to interact with the community and world, and manifest the Kingdom to a greater degree.
There is a line being drawn in the sand. There is going to be a greater contrast between believers and those in the world. God is releasing a grace for boldness in the body, for believers to live out and demonstrate His heart. As the Spirit becomes more evident and manifest in the children of God, the fruit will be seen. Believers are being positioned to be a blessing to the world around them for others to taste and see the Lord is good. To the degree Holy Spirit manifests in His children, there’s going to be a conviction to choose a side. His power will be seen in His body, the world will see power in the Church.
The revelation of God’s holiness is going to increase as well as the fear of the Lord. People are going to receive a higher conscience level as they come near God’s presence flowing through believers into areas. I feel like this is going to increase especially among those caught in sex trafficking, and drug use. The fear of the Lord will increase through the revelation of God’s holiness. God is releasing a greater level of reverence for His Spirit in believers as well. This deep rooted reverence and respect for His presence will open new realms of glory and new areas of His Kingdom.
This year, the Holy Spirit is going to be a main focus. How to partner with Him, how to flow with Him, and how He manifests are going to be highlights. As God is releasing deeper revelation of His Holiness, there will be a greater focus and appreciation for the Spirit of Holiness which is going to accelerate Kingdom growth.
Deliverance is going to be easier and done more quickly as God is releasing a greater anointing in His presence to break the yoke of bondage off people. Addictions are going to be broken instantly, and those in demonic bondage are going to be freed by His invading presence. The Fire of God will be quick to manifest burning up demonic strongholds and establishing the rule and reign of Christ. There a grace to break every yoke and set the oppressed free. There also is going to be a greater exposing and freeing of demonic strongholds This is going to be released in resting in Him, and abiding in Him. As we rest in His presence, Holy Spirit exposes and destroys the plans and tactics of the enemy as stay in a place of beholding and embracing Jesus.
True worshipers are arising and they’re going to carry God’s presence to a greater degree. The Lord has been reminding me of experiences where public worship broke through the atmosphere producing amazing outbreaks of miracles. I feel this year, that’s going to be a strategy God puts in play for taking over areas.
For the past few years the Lord has been showing me the seasons of the Church. On 3/29/2011, I was in Church and Holy Spirit prompted me to open my eyes. I saw someone with a purple robe about 7 feet tall holding a golden staff. I couldn’t see his face, just the purple robe draped over him. The Lord spoke to my heart and said, “His name is Royalty, and He’s here to establish royalty within My children. This happened when I was in Bible College.
The next day at school I ran into students that were talking about a powerful message they heard about us being royalty. I found out that multiple congregations across many denominations started teaching on royalty and identity.
At the start of 2013, the Lord showed me that He is mobilizing His bride. New years eve, a man dressed in a santa suite came over to give my children gifts. He had a cast around his wrist. We prayed and he freaked out and left when he started feeling heat while we were praying. My wife and I were having a prophetic gathering and while we went to get pizza for it, I noticed a lady with a wrap on her hand. I asked her what happened and she said carpel tunnel. She was going into surgery for it the next day. After a quick prayer, she was healed. At the gathering, a guy showed up who had an injured spine and his legs were skinny with no feeling in them. We prayed for his back until he started getting balance and the pain left. Then I started to pray for his legs and I felt the muscle build up under my hands and feeling returned to his legs.
That night, we were praying and asked the Lord about what was going on this year. The Lord spoke to my heart and said, “Those healings weren’t random, the bride has had her hands, legs, and backbone bound up.” And that He wanted to mobilize the body. All through 2013 there was increased focus unity and many congregations started working together. I’ve been seeing the fruit of it as we’re witnessing.
I’ve also received many words about this year, which I’ll put that word out in another post.
Today, on 3/25/2014 I was praying and asking the Lord about manifesting the Kingdom in Portland, I received a word over the NorthWest. After I received it Holy Spirit made it clear that it's time to release it.
God has released equipping angels and those positioned are going to receiving a greater anointing and authority to manifest the Kingdom. I saw a vision of angels with spears, and then I saw the body of Christ being the spear piercing through the heart of Portland, first the tip and then the rest of the spear following after. The tip of the spear are those positioned to receive and run with what God's releasing. This is not only for Portland but also the whole North West.
