For the past few years I have gathered and collated prophetic words for the year ahead and condensed them into a ‘mash-up.’ Usually the words have a theme or thread – the themes this year are varied with many beginning with ‘2016: The year of the ….’ One thing I have learned is ‘every prophetic word is subject to the will of the listener. The work is His but the willingness must be ours.’

As you read through these words and thoughts I pray you have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying and that your heart will respond to that which is for you, your family and your community.

The Year the Tide turns 

Isaiah 59:19, ‘When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Lord will raise up a standard.’ Many people get stuck when the flood comes, but they forget that God is raising up a standard. I want to encourage you, some of you right now are going through a challenging time, but I promise you that God is working on your behalf. The enemy may be coming in trying to overwhelm you, trying to make you feel like you are flooded by problems and adversities. But don’t pray complaining prayers; pray faith-filled prayers, saying that you trust the Lord, that He is going to cause you to triumph, He’s going to cause you to overcome. And I want to promise you the tide will turn.

Unlocking

‘I am coming like the lightning to unlock every circumstance that’s been held up. I am coming in power, and I am coming quickly. I am bringing it from Heaven to earth. In these next six weeks, I am coming in power, and I will unlock that which has been locked! Do not expect anything to feel the same as you go forward. Don’t expect the things that you have done for years to even feel the same. This will be a time that you will look at everything that is happening with fresh eyes and new eyes. Rejoice in this and know that I will not let you stay in the same place. I have brought you too far to let you stay where you don’t belong anymore.’

The Ground

We are seeing everything that has built up in 2015 come to a complete tipping point. For the bowls of prayer, petitions, and decrees have come before the Lord and the Lord is about to move on behalf of His people. The events, even the tests and trials that were experienced during this phase, have been the ground for that which the Lord is establishing now. ‘For now the dry ground is about to become your watered garden. The harvest will be like nothing you have seen in times past. For this is a part of the accelerated course that has come upon the land, and there will be rapid growth in this season.’ The ground of peoples’ hearts, the ground of peoples’ minds, and the ground of peoples’ spirits will be cleansed. The land will be cleansed with My love, mercy, and purity of purpose that will be planted into the ground. It will purge and uproot that which was sown by the enemy. This is a time and an hour for a great cleansing to take place: unto the people, unto the land, and unto the Church. This cleansing will cause a re-turning and a changing; and in that turning and that changing, My people will be delivered, healed, and prepared.’

The Process of Restoration

‘There will be a restoration, a return to the place of original intent, and a return back to ground that needs to be taken in the realm of the spirit. There will be a return back to those things that I have called My people to accomplish. I will work generationally, and I will take My people into a deeper depth of the anointing and into the power of My grace in My love. For this will be a part of that which I have placed upon them that they may grow.

‘I will even take this season of restoration and will unveil the seedlings within the plant of its origin, and you will see My purpose purify the hearts and minds of My people. They will become ready, they will come forth, and they will move forth to do the things that I have called them to do in this season. Then you will understand the re-digging of the wells and the replanting of My Word, as it called to take root and bear fruit as My plan becomes activated in this hour.’

Tipping Point

Watch how when the efforts of many move together a tsunami wave of momentum is created, having much impact. It will begin in January and go throughout the year. You will see people connecting people, purpose, time, and energy along with great moves of God’s glory touching others on new levels. There will be those who will be carriers of the glory realm coming together.

The bowls of the prayers of the saints will be tipped over, taking others into greater realms of prayer movements. People will be gathering together with a hunger for His presence and hearts crying out for transformation, and it will take place in the house both apostolically and prophetically. In many ways God will see to it that things fall into their proper place.

The Year of the Slipstream

Slipstream: ‘the airstream generating reduced air pressure and forward suction directly behind a rapidly moving vehicle.’ The year 2015 has been a year of intense pressure, intense stretching, intense opposition, and contending. I believe in 2016 there is an invitation into a divine slipstream. The wind of the Spirit is moving in great acceleration, but the Lord is calling us to a ‘positioning’ of greater rest. This invitation will require a greater trust in the Lord and His timing and ways. These slipstreams are going to go in different directions in some ways to how many have anticipated He is going to move and ‘when,’ but as the people of God allow the wind of the Spirit to carry them in this slipstream, there is going to be greater ground taken, greater manifestations of His power and Spirit, greater fruit for less effort. This divine slipstream is going to see many get a rest from the hard toiling of 2015, where things will begin to flow in 2016, as the manifested winds of grace land in lives in greater ways. Abundance, provision, and manifested blessing are going to break through in 2016 in exponential ways.

Year of the Pioneer

Pioneers have been through intense trials, opposition, weariness, hardship, and fire. In the year of 2016, a great vindication is coming over the pioneers. It will be like Joseph, when there was great favor over his life and it was evident that the Lord was with him as all he touched prospered. Favor is going to be poured over the pioneers in 2016 in greater ways, especially as they have sown, stewarded, and forged forward when no one was looking, no one was cheering, no fruit was manifesting, but they continued obedience to Him and to the vision the Lord had given them; they will be rewarded, many openly and publicly in 2016, and put in charge to oversee much more. Much more will be added to them and placed into their hands as they have stewarded well and served the Lord faithfully.

Pioneers, don’t give up! The year 2016 will see everything fall into place and an extension of time and space for increase, divine suddenlies, and turnarounds. The Lord is going to do things in a 24-hour period in and through the lives of the pioneers in 2016, which is not humanly possible, that will restore, refresh and fill the pioneers with renewed hope, expectation, and new levels of faith, and they will bring the Body of Christ to a whole new level of faith and hopeful, joyful, confident expectation in the timing, ways, vision, goodness, and provision of the Lord.

2016: Abundance, Overflow, and Fruitfulness

‘Agree with the decree.’ You must hear what Heaven is saying and echo and speak and decree that here. You have to be moved by what you hear. Regardless of circumstances and situations, you have to agree with that decree. Your season may be contrary to the rest of what is going on around you. The Lord said the season you are going to be in is three big words: abundance, overflow, and fruitfulness. The fruitfulness only comes after cutting back the vine. God cuts back and prunes the branches, and only then can much fruit come forth. It is one thing to bear fruit, but the Lord is glorified in much fruit. We are moving from fruit to much fruit. I see the end of pruning and cutting away, so that much fruit can come forth.

Redeeming Time

C.S. Lewis said about redeeming the time, ‘We can actually buy back times in our past when we have felt abandoned, abused, betrayed, and fearful. We as Believers cannot only be forgiven of our past but we can travel back in time with God and see God as an ever present help in that situation in the future.’

A Year of Favor

Favor is hard to define but not very difficult to describe. Favor is an invitation into God’s shalom—his peace, wholeness, fullness, kindness, abundance, and well-being. It’s an assurance that he is with us and looks kindly on us—that his people live under his smile. It means he is uniquely disposed to pour out his grace on all who will receive it, that he is the wind in our sails, that his promises are “yes and amen,” that the God of glory is on our side, and that none of our obstacles or opposition are any match for him. Favor assures us that it’s not irresponsible to put the weight of our hardships on him and refuse to feel the burden of them ourselves. It means even our problems will work out for our advancement. It tells us it’s okay to laugh today. As much as we want. It also means I’m his favorite. You are too.

A Season of Light

The Lord says that, ‘The enemy has been bringing a spiritual fog into your spiritual atmosphere. This has caused you to be unable to see clearly. It has created doubt around the things that you are making decisions for. It has caused you to be unclear about that which you are to pray and that which you are to do.” But, the Lord says, ‘Watch now, for I bring My wind, and I will remove the fog, which has encased you. I will remove from you the obstruction that has kept you from seeing clearly. You are now entering into the season of light, and the glory of this season shall come with great clarity, great purpose of mind and the greatness of strength of the anointing of My Spirit. Expect Me to clear the atmosphere that has hindered you so that you may see clearly all things,’ says the Almighty. God is now bringing His wind to remove the fog, which has kept you from seeing clearly. This will continue into the spring of the year and then He will bring His spiritual rain to wash away the dust (defilement) left by satan’s attacks.

I (M) believe that the secret place is key to all of these words – that lives must be from intimacy with Christ. It is there you will hear for your own life. I love this line ‘Don’t go to your assignments without God’s blessing. Passion isn’t permission – presence is.’

 I pray Psalm 27 over your life…that you will know the Lord as your strength and salvation. That you will know a year of freedom from fear and as you seek Him – the ONE – you will know who you are created to be. I pray God’s purposes will be clear. That when those days of trouble come you will know Him as your safe place. I pray as you wait you will be strong. That you will know and remain confident of this – you will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Amen!

and finally…

We are called to be the uncontainable aroma of Christ.

Prophetic mashup for 2014.

IMG_4738-1

I have mentioned before I have read a lot of words of destiny over 2014, and some have asked if I can summarize them. This post is basically a collation/combination/mash up of prophetic words I have read in January, words I am saying a huge YES to. You are reading a combination of the actual words of Doug Addison, Jonny Enlow, Kent Simpson, Kim Clement, Tim Sheets and Me! Most can be found in their entirety on Elijah list.

OPEN DOORS

The year 2014 is 5774 on the Hebraic calendar – Ayin Dalet. The Hebrew calendar speaks to us prophetically. The number 4 is the letter Dalet. Dalet is the word for “door,” or an open tent flap, or the opening into a new territory. 5774 is also a Leap Year in the Hebraic cycle. Ayin Dalet references a year of open doors – so you can leap forward, that is, a year of open doors so you can spring forward. Holy Spirit is going to open doors supernaturally for His people this year to surge ahead.

“Doors of new history will now be opened. A new movement will now spring forth. A new stream from My throne will begin to flow. It is a pure stream of pure Gospel; for the stream of My Gospel has been diverted and dammed up by those who wanted the benefits of reservoired blessings, but I will now blow up the dams.”

A new spiritual landscape. A place of elevation. A place of purpose.

Once this door is opened to you and you enter into this spiritual environment, you will find the pathway that leads to the fulfillment of your destiny.

God is opening a gateway into the heavenly realm in 2014 for deeper revelation and greater power. This is the start of a new season, and the drought we have been experiencing in the Kingdom over the last few years is now over. Expect an increase in your spiritual gifts, dreams, visions, and supernatural encounters. This will open the opportunity for you to step up to a new level and see results for your efforts.

The first part of this new movement of God will involve a time of refreshment for those who are weary. You will experience mini-renewals of His presence and gifts in your life. Many people have been suffering from hope deferred for so long that they need to soften up and be recharged.

For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring, and My blessing on your descendants.’ Isaiah 44:3

The second part of this movement will be a new rain of the Holy Spirit that will come upon those that are seeking all that God has for them. This movement will look very strange, as all types of people will begin to be drawn to God. In the midst of this, a new generation will begin to awaken to God’s love, power, and acceptance.

The next phase will bring God’s power like we have not experienced before. This will be a new level of God’s fiery presence and healing. This is a start of a new healing movement with miracles, signs, wonders, and deeper revelation.

See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it’ Revelation 3:8

‘I am the [open] door…’ John 10:9

CATAPULT

This year we will begin to leap forward into a new awareness of Him, and it will be transformational. This year will see the springing forward of so many into the release from their “accumulated tension.” Catapulting involves the slingshot effect of a great pulling back followed by a dramatic release. Preparing for catapulting often involves what appears to be going nowhere, or even backwards for an excruciating length of time, with an end result of great forward propulsion. When in His hands, the further you have been pulled back, the greater His desire to catapult you. Often in the pull-back, God is also going after important “character matters” as He desires you to be able to remain and occupy the place He is catapulting you to.

GIFTS

As we step into 2014, each of us should ponder these questions: What are our gifts from Heaven? Do we know what God has placed in us to fulfill His plan? Do we know what our part in that plan is? It’s important for us to identify our gifts because they are the keys that open doors and bring us into our divine destiny. Proverbs 18:16 promises us, “A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men.”

We can be sure that our gifts will play an integral part to fulfilling our God-given dreams. After discovering our God-given gifts, it then becomes our responsibility to continually practice using them. God has called each of us to exercise our gifts so they become strong. God will bring other people (they are gifts themselves, and they also have various gifts) around us to connect the dots on the road to destiny. Oftentimes people get stalled in the pursuit of dreams because they’re waiting for some man or woman to open doors for them. But listen! God has a better plan for you. He has given you the keys to open doors to your future – those keys are your gifts. And the gifts inside of you are perfect because they are what God determined for you to have even before you were born.

ACCELERATION

One of the words I (Michelle) heard for 2014 was ‘acceleration’. I was excited to read this from Kim Clement.  “This is the Beginning of Acceleration” Isn’t God always ready to perform His word? The word “ready” – when He says I’m ready to perform My word, it means, “I will hasten and accelerate” My word. That’s the word for this season. You’re about to step into accelerated favor! I looked up the word “accelerate” as it is shown there. Listen to this, you’re going to love it, and then we’re going to do what God wants us to do and then celebrate and go into the New Year celebrating. Where is the God of Elijah? Listen to me quickly. The word “hasten” or “accelerate” means “to cause faster and greater activity.” How many of you are really ready for that? No more doldrums. No more passivity.

A lady wrote to me today and she was so upset. She said, “I’m sick. I’m so sick of waiting for God to show up.” I said, Let me tell you this, there’s a lot of people that feel like that. But this is a time and a season where He has caused a dynamic – not a demonic – but a dynamic that has pushed us, that has pushed us to dissatisfaction to the point where we will kill (and I’m not talking about murder) – kill demonic forces and whatever stands in our way for our promise to be fulfilled.

The word “hasten” or “accelerate” means “to cause faster and greater activity; to change the rate of motion; to reduce the time required for something.” To reduce the time required for something; to progress and to develop faster, to develop faster. God spoke to me and said there will be a fast development of these things that I’ve promised in the medical world, in the scientific world, in the religious world, in the political world – the things that have been spoken are going to progress and develop faster.

JUSTICE

We are entering a season where those who have experienced injustice are about to receive supernatural restoration.

The Lord is speaking a word of hope in the middle of injustice: “I am about to right this wrong. The injustice done to you cannot stand in the presence of My justice. The enemy came to steal, rob and destroy, but watch what I am about to do. My court has issued an official order against this work of injustice in your life. Give Me your sorrow. Give Me your despair. These are illegal orders issued from the courts of darkness. I have destined this season to be a time when My goodness and purpose will be revealed. My mercy and justice is coming. This injustice you are experiencing is about to become a place of celebration and restoration.”

Hope is a person, not a theory. He has authority over the power and imagery of despair. He has given that same authority to us. Despair cannot stand in His presence, nor can despair continue to pull us towards its place of eventual death, if we call upon God in our time of need. Lies have no power in the light of His presence.

SPEAK LIFE

You can begin to prophesy and speak to what appears dead, hopeless, and cut-off so to witness fruitfulness and fulfillment once again. Romans 8:9-11 tells us that the same power that raised Christ from the dead is also in us because He lives in us. I believe this means that certainly we will also be resurrected from the dead, as Christ Himself was, but that also we have a divine power within us to resurrect dead situations or promises that appear completely cut off and separated from us.

I (Michelle) had a dream at the beginning of the year. I saw rows and rows of sheep who were asleep, and thought I’d leave them to it…

The Lord had me look closer I realized the sheep were not asleep but comatose. Rows and rows sheep in a coma.

I was challenged in my response. I couldn’t leave them to it… What do we do with this who are in a coma? We call them out, we call their name, we sit with them, we pray for them, we remind them of promises of who they were and are.

We stick with them. A very different response to those who are sleeping.

God showed me these sheep, his sheep, his children, in comas induced by life, decisions, accidents, illness, acts against them.

We as pray-ers – intercessors are to call them out of this state in the spirit. name them, remind them, declare, speak life.

I encourage you at this point to read the story of dry bones in Ezekial 37. When God instructs us to prophesy the word of the Lord, the future and destiny begin to come together in order to become fulfilled. Imagine your scattered prophecies, unfulfilled, being resurrected and coming together once again. God put His very breath into those bones to which Ezekiel was prophesying. Imagine life coming into your very own situations which appear dead and desolate. God is breathing life into every area of hope deferred right now! There was resurrection power released into those dry bones! You will stand! What an encouragement from the Lord He is giving us right now. We will stand and not be defeated in this season. When God resurrects something in our lives – whether it be His resurrecting dreams, vision, hope, or promises. You are no longer “cut off” from being completed – in every area! God has a plan for your life and He is watching over His words concerning you. He is promising to bring the details of your fulfillment together.

Praying you find YOUR word in this!

Love, Michelle xo
