This is the year of mercy and grace by Cathy Lechner

 The following prophetic word for 2013 was given by Cathy Lechner in a church service at King Jesus Ministries in early January. This is a very large church located in Miami, FL. The pastor is Guillermo Maldonado.

This is the year of mercy and grace. Mercy is God giving you $1 million, loaning it to you. It’s a loan. And you blow all of it and you cannot take it back. And he comes to you and says, “Guess what? I forgive you the million dollars, don’t worry about it, I’m ripping up the contract, and you don’t owe me anything.” That is Mercy.

Grace is him turning around and saying, “Here is another million dollars. Start over again!”
The Lord spoke to me and said:
“I have allowed this nation to go into bondage because the sin and the error have become great and you are no longer one nation under God. I have allowed this nation to become a servant to ungodly masters for a season that will require servitude.”
Why does God allow us to go into servitude? Why does he allow us to go into debt for our inheritance and for our children? He allows it because it forces us to cry out in our bondage. We only cry out when we are in bondage. But the Lord says:
“I am not finished with the United States of America. I am not finished with the purpose of this nation. Just as I turned Israel over to its captors for 400 years until they cried out for deliverance, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and turn from their wicked ways and pray and cry out and seek my face, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land.”
We cannot get mad at CNN and the legislators. They are not going to do it. God is just waiting for our cry. So we have no excuse not to be a tabernacle and to come early and pray because we are crying out for our children, and our children’s children, and our nation, and our family.
He said if My people who are called by My name, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, if they will humble themselves I will heal their land (2nd Chronicles 7:14)

The second thing the Lord said for our nation:
“There is a major crisis coming to Washington DC. It will capture the heart of our legislators and our president.”
We need to pray. We can criticize them, but the word commands us to pray for them. So whether we like them or not we need to pray. Prayer is the only thing that changes the situation. As we pray and pray we are believing that our president will fall onto his knees and cry out to Jesus, and not to Allah. He will cry out to Jesus that calamity will be avoided in our nation.

The third thing for our nation, the Lord said:
“There is going to be a short honeymoon time, a short season, where it will seem like all of the policies that were promised are working. There’s going to be a short season where it looks like there is prosperity. It will look like there is an upswing coming in the economy. It will look like they’re going to be some jobs. You’re going to be hearing these things. But it is only for a short season. Hear the word of the Lord. The short season will come to an end. It will seem like overnight that the bottom is going to drop out of our economy. It will make the last recession that we went through look like a picnic compared to this one. We will be in, or close to, double-digit inflation and recession in our country. We are going to see the failure of more banks as we come closer to that one world banking system. They will downplay and minimize the economic problems in our press and our news media coverage. But in spite of what they will say, everyone’s finances will be affected. The policies that have been put in place will fail.”
I am not going to tell you a time because God did not give me a time.

Do not look to the news media for your news. Look to the word of the Lord and the pastors and the prophets and the teachers and those with maturity in the Lord. Don’t listen to everybody on the Internet because they will tell you all kinds of different things. Look to those who have proven to be mature in giving prophetic words. God has put the fivefold ministry together so that we have the counsel of the word of the Lord.

The Lord is warning us. He tried to warn us the last time too, but we just heap the prosperity and keep heaping the prosperity not realizing. Remember Joseph in the land. God gave Pharaoh a dream that the skinny cows swallowed the fat cows. God gave Pharaoh the dream to warn him that famine was coming.

The body of Christ is going to be fine. But God is warning us ahead of time. He is telling us how to prepare so that we can prepare ourselves for when the bottom falls out. Because God has one purpose, He wants to build his kingdom.

What causes people to rush into church? They don’t need God when everything is fine. When the stock market is going great and they have their investments, who needs God? But the things that are coming will force them to engage God.

The Lord spoke this to me:
“You will be forced to engage in a new war. There is going to be a new war declared that will be costly to lives and financially expensive to this nation. America will be drawn into it.”
I believe it will be in the Middle East, but we will see. We must pray that America does not get involved in another war that will drain our country and take the lives of our young men and women.
We’re going to see family coming together.

The Lord said January and February is the optimal time for sowing. I don’t know why. God just told me that. Farmers know when to plant, when to sow, when to harvest. They know when the optimal time is. God said January and February is a great time to get your seed in the ground. Sow, sow, sow, every time you have a chance. Not just for an immediate harvest before a long-term harvest. Pay off your credit cards. Downsize wherever possible. Get rid of whatever you do not need, whatever you are not using. Downsize! If you have possessions that you don’t need, sell them and sow the money into the kingdom. Don’t put it all in the bank, put it in the kingdom because banks will fail.
Honor your vows. If you have vows that you made in previous years but still have not paid, Start paying on your vows. Honor your vows, whether it was a vow to give your time or your money. God is waiting on you. He moves when you move. The father of the prodigal son waited for his son to return. Then he went to meet him. When you start making a move toward honoring your vows then God will make a move toward you.
