As we cross over the threshold of time and enter into a new season – the Hebraic year 5772 – I find myself echoing the Lord as He asks the Church this question, "Will you come up higher still?"
The Lord is calling for His Church to rise up in this hour, far beyond the reaches of familiarity, and begin to assume her rightful position within His Kingdom.
5772/2012 will be marked as a year of numerous catastrophic events throughout the world, from natural disasters, to financial distresses, wars and rumors of wars – everything that can and has been shaken will be shaken.
However, there is good news! If the Church will hearken unto the Word of the Lord and remain true to His instruction, we will find ourselves witness to the greatest corporate awakening the Church has ever seen as she rises up into a season of unprecedented power and authority, assuming her rightful position in His Kingdom – the Kingdom of our God!
Weather Extremes are Coming
This year, 5772/2012, the United States will witness numerous severe and record-breaking weather extremes. We will experience unparalleled droughts and floods of epic proportions. I believe that these storms are on the horizon as the world has, both literally and spiritually, been shifted off of its axis.
This warning comes to the Church, not to bring fear and panic, but in order that we can prepare and begin to learn to take dominion over the atmosphere – over our circumstances. We will no longer have the luxury of placing the responsibility of dealing with these issues upon the shoulders of other apostolic and intercessory groups (the forerunners). Instead, we need to rise up and learn to pray and prophesy to the wind and the weather – to take dominion and authority over our own circumstances!
"… For He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him!" Luke 8:25
The Transfer of Wealth is Coming
The world's economies will worsen in 5772. Consequently, for those in ministries who rely on financial support from familiar sources, things will have to change.
God will remove many familiar sources of financial provision during this season, however, if we watch carefully, another source of money will begin to rise up – a new source flowing from the hands of Believers who are found patiently waiting upon the Lord for this coming transfer of wealth! When this begins to happen, it may appear to those without the knowledge of God as if the Body of Christ is suffering. However, this is far from the truth! The remnant Church will not suffer if she listens and obeys His word.
As this transfer of wealth begins to unfold, those who were not millionaires will become millionaires. Those who were millionaires will become multi-millionaires. And those who were multi-millionaires will become billionaires. This will be the new generation who will help facilitate a harvest the size the world has never before seen. It's coming!
"'Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,' says the LORD of hosts, 'If I will not open for you the windows of Heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.'" Malachi 3:10
Earthquakes are Coming
There will be an increase in worldwide earthquake activity in 5772 – with a high probability of a serious earthquake occurring within the boundaries of the United States. While many have put their trust in the government to provide for them in these coming crises, it will be unable to do so. But this is all part of God's design to prepare His Bride! He is asking us to prophesy and speak unto the mountain. He is asking us to rise up in faith, exercising our authority over the land!
"For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says." Mark 11:23
The Lord will always reveal His secrets to His servants in order that we can prepare for that which is to come. I am sharing this with you today so that you can be prepared. It is wise for you to be aware of the fact that possible food and supply shortages may be coming our way as a result of these earthquakes and extreme weather. On a practical level we should all have a disaster relief program in-place in our homes, in our businesses, and in our churches. We should have enough food, water, and enough money (cash on-hand) so that if something does happen, we are prepared to go through a 30-day window of dysfunction. However, we need not panic: remember, this is not yet the time of "Armageddon," but we do need to be prepared with a practical action-plan.
Wars and Rumors of Wars are Coming
In 5772, wars and rumors of wars will continue throughout the world as we draw closer to the prophetic times Jesus spoke of in Matthew 24:6:
"And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet."
Israel will frequently make front-page news as she experiences increased political and military unrest in 5772/2012. Her borders will remain in constant turmoil, with peace no longer on the horizon. Therefore, the Church must stand up in support of Israel. She must, as never before, rise up and position herself on her knees in prayer for the peace of Jerusalem and all of Israel.
"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: 'May they prosper who love you. Peace be within your walls, prosperity within your palaces.'" Psalm 122:6-7
It's Time, Church! - The Prophetic Word is Coming
"THE ONE WHO DOES NOT REMEMBER HISTORY IS BOUND TO LIVE THROUGH IT AGAIN." (By the famous philosopher, George Santayana, inscribed on a plaque found within the walls of the Auschwitz concentration camp.)
In 5772/2012 the Church is going to need to not only embrace the prophetic, but also to understand and activate the principles of the prophetic word with greater authority so as not to repeat history. For that reason, we must always look to Scripture as our guide to the prophetic in these trying times.
One of the best examples on the fundamentals of prophecy can be found in Ezekiel 37. There, in verse 3, we find the Lord asking of Ezekiel, during his vision in the valley of dry bones, "Son of man, can these bones live?" And then in subsequent verses, the Lord instructs Ezekiel to prophesy to the bones – telling them to come together; and then to prophesy to the breath; and then to the sinew and skin; and finally to take full authority and prophesy unto the land. Do you see the process?
Pastor John Kilpatrick, of the Church of His Presence, described the prophetic process best when he explained that God typically prophesies from mountain-top to mountain-top, never giving you the valleys. Until this time, the Church has not correctly understood how to deal with prophecy – it does not fully understand that you must go forward after you have gone through the valley of the shadow of death!
The cause for confusion over how to prophesy in the Church often occurs when the Lord asks her, "Can this great thing happen?" We then respond and answer, "Yes, Lord, You know!" We are all in agreement, and the bones begin to come together, which is great! But then after the great commotion of bones flying around and coming together, we never seem to get to the place where we actually put lungs into it, or put skin on it, or even begin to position ourselves to prophesy to the land – to take authority and dominion over it!
It's Time to Wage the Good Warfare
Paul spoke these words to Timothy, in 1 Timothy 1:18-19, "This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare..."
Pastor Kilpatrick has continued on to reveal how the Church must be taught how to wage the good warfare with the prophecies that have been spoken over their lives. For these prophesies to come to pass, we have to be able to see the dry bones coming together! We have to be healed. We have to be found living in the land. And, we have to battle until our prophecies come to pass! We no longer have the time to merely stop because we cannot find the lungs and the breath to put into it! We must continue to war for our prophecies! Therefore our prophecies must become our focus!
As we read the remainder of verse 19, Paul reveals the fate of those who lose faith concerning their prophecies:
"...Having faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected, concerning the faith have suffered shipwreck."
This is what subsequently happens as you begin to drift away from the prophetic word spoken over your life. If you lack the faith to continue to push it forward, you will shipwreck! So you must contend for the prophecies that were spoken over you!
It's Time to Take Authority
There is an anointing to awaken to a third-day in 5772. This is very important, because you cannot change things with the abundance of yesterday's knowledge and activity! You will need to carry a new revelation into the third-day.
Revelation 1:6 says, "and [He] has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen."
This speaks of the renewal of hope! This Scripture tells us that He has made us kings and priests! Who are you waiting for to prophesy unto your mountain? You must rise up as a king and a priest, and speak to the issues in your life. You must obtain the revelation and awaken to the Kingdom in this third-day! It is about "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done!" The Kingdom is for kings and priests!
In order to activate our authority, hope needs to be renewed. Otherwise, we will always look to others to pray for us and to speak for us. We must speak forth dominion over our own prophetic word – over what we are each called to do.
My own personal job is to do everything I can in order for the Gentile Church and Israel to come together and open up the gates. I have been prophesying into this vision for 22 years – and I know that I will see it! I will either see it as one coming back, or I will literally see it – but I will see it. I have prophesied this so much that I believe it – I know that I am a king and a priest! It doesn't make any difference if others don't believe – it is about what I believe when I speak it. This is all about knowing exactly who you are in Yeshua the Messiah!
It's Time to Prophesy with Breath
Deuteronomy 11:26 says, "Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse."
5772 is about prophesying breath. Are you going to prophesy for the four-winds to come? Are you going to believe? You must begin to walk with your lungs full of the four-winds, declaring, "I have a choice; blessing or cursing!" This is your choice – you must choose, because God will always give you a choice!
Many people tend to fight against their prophetic word with excuses. But you can choose to say, "No! I am born-again and washed in the Blood of Jesus who died to bless me!" You must say, "I choose blessing because I am blessed of the Lord!" And when you do, the skeletal system will begin to come together; the ribcage and lungs will begin to operate, and breath will begin to come out. Your prophecy will begin to come to life!
It's Time to be Released into Your Destiny
Isaiah 40:31 says, "But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint."
Many in the Church today are perplexed as to why they have been held back, many have battled rejection, and many have had several false starts. There have been many with big plans that have suddenly ground to a halt. These plans were stopped because it was not yet your time! But the Lord wants me to prophesy this to you for 5772/2012: "It's time to be released into your destiny!"
For this to happen you must be clothed spiritually – you need to put on your new identity. You need to put on that covenant relationship and know that your God loves you. You are not second-rate – you have not been grafted-in as an afterthought. God knew what He was doing from the foundations of the Earth, and He is ready to release you into your destiny!
It's Time to Walk in Authority
"'I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the LORD, have spoken it and performed it,' says the LORD." Ezekiel 37:14
A part of this new release involves the transfer of land. This is exactly what the battle over Israel is for. More than ever in 5772 the battle for Zion is going to be fought over her land. What the Lord is about to do in Israel will be miraculous! There will be prophets who go into Israel this year who will speak to the dry bones from the mountains of Zion. They will release the breath – the Ruach HaKodesh of God (the Holy Spirit). They will speak to the sinew – the strength.
And the Jewish people in the land of Israel will rise up, not as I.D.F. soldiers, but in the spirit of Elisha! They will rise up in power. They will rise up in the dominion that they were called to. They will turn from caterpillars into butterflies. They are going to come out of their cocoons this year! They are going to operate in power and speak unto their land. And when they do this, the LION of the TRIBE of JUDAH will ROAR!
We, as the Church, have been standing in the gap interceding for many years, and prophesying unto the mountains of Israel. But now the Lord will raise up His own indigenous Sabra – Jewish prophets – Jewish Believers who will rise up and begin to speak unto the land. As these satanic ley lines are broken, you are going to start seeing ley lines broken in your own properties – in your land – and over the United States of America. So I speak release into the land – into the ley lines of God!
Yes, 5772/2012 will indeed be the beginning of a new season. A season when the Church begins to emerge out from the familiar and step into the third-day revelation of our LORD! A year when the Church rises up to take dominion and possession of her rightful inheritance in His Kingdom – the Kingdom of God!
