WORD FOR 2020

"THE ROARING 20’s" (Part 2)



This is a continuation of what I shared last week (October 19, 2019). I was inquiring of the Lord about a prophetic word for the year 2020, and the Holy Spirit brought me back to “THE ROARING 20’s." He showed me many things that would take place in the coming years. The Roaring 20’s was an exceptionally prosperous time as Americans enjoyed a high standard of living. It was known as a time of new inventions, technical innovations, jazz and social gatherings.

There was a shift as many households switched from coal to electricity. The 1920’s was also remembered for its flappers, music, automobile craze, and advancements in radio, television and film. The people’s attire was unique. The men wore fedoras or cabbie caps that matched with their suits, and the women were adorned with ‘bobbed’ hairstyles, cloche hats, and long dresses. It certainly was a decade of transformation for America.

The Lord is showing me that the 2020’s are going to be a decade of major changes not only in the natural but also in the Kingdom of God. The 1960’s and the 1970’s were known as the Jesus movement, the 1980’s and 1990’s were known as the charismatic renewal and faith movement, and from 2000 until now, we have heard much about a grace and glory movement. The Holy Spirit wants to bring it all together in the coming days as He releases the former and the latter rain.


Worshiping with Abandon


The Lord showed me meetings where people were gathered in exuberant praise. They were not drunk as some supposed but were filled with the Holy Ghost. Many worshipers were dancing with flags, banners and streamers. The glory cloud is going to move upon congregations once again. We will see people set free, delivered and transformed in their time of worship as the Holy Spirit descends. As people worship with abandon, they will enter into a new place with God. I saw bondages being broken and yolks being destroyed as they sing about the wonderful name of Jesus.



Dismantling Man Made Traditions


There will be another awakening as the Jesus movement back in the day. This movement swept across the nation bringing many people into the kingdom of God. Hippies as well as white-collar workers gathered together on Wall Street for prayer. Many denominations came together in one accord to worship Jesus. The Lord wants to set people free of man-made doctrine and religious traditions. As pastors who are spiritually burned-out allow the Holy Spirit to move in their churches, they will receive an impartation from the Him which will bring an awakening and a revival to their congregations..


Prayers of A Righteous Man and Woman


There will be a new season of intercession. Many will gather together and seek the face of Jesus. They will be those who know how to pull heaven down to the earth. The Lord will visit them as they call upon His name in one accord. He will speak in visions, words of knowledge and prophecy as they stand in agreement. They don’t pray with empty words but they know that God the Father hears and answers their prayers. They know their authority and whatsoever they bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatsoever they loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.


Beware of Wolves in Sheep Clothing


Although the Holy Spirit is going to move in a mighty way, spiritual warfare will also increase. We have no need to fear because the Lord has given us power over all the power of the enemy and nothing by any means shall harm us. Unfortunately there will always be those who oppose a move of the Holy Spirit. Beware of the cessationists who distort Christianity by saying that the spiritual gifts have ended with the times of the apostles. They oppose women in ministry and deceive many. The enemy will try to send backlash every time something is accomplished for the glory of God, but as the enemy tries to come in like a flood, the Lord will raise up a standard against him.


A Company of Prophets

 
As I mentioned last week, the Lord is raising up prophetic voices. He will speak to them in dreams and visions of the night. The Holy Spirit showed me many prophets and leaders who were forerunners of the coming revival. They prophesied out of a pure heart. Their words were not tainted with pride, anger or arrogance. They have passed the tests of life and didn't retaliate when confronted. We will see prophets training and mentoring younger prophets just as Elisha raised up prophetic sons and Samuel met with a band of prophets. As he prophesied, he was turned into another man.


A Glorious Bride


First and foremost, as Christians we must guard our hearts. It is imperative that we walk in holiness if we want to hear from God, not in a religious way but by submitting ourselves in a personal relationship with Jesus. In 1 John 3:21-22, John wrote that if our conscience is clear, we can ask Him anything and we will receive it. 1 John 2:6 says that whoever claims to live in Him must live as Jesus did. The Apostle Paul said “I die daily." We must close all doors to any sin that would keep us from receiving all that the Lord has for us. For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.



1 Samuel 3:19 
So Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground.
 
1 Samuel 10:6 
Then the Spirit of the Lord will rush upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man.
 
1 John 3:21-22
Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

WORD FOR 2020

"THE ROARING 20’s"



As I was inquiring of the Lord about a word for the year 2020, the Holy Spirit brought me back to “THE ROARING 20’s." I did some research on it and this is what I found. The Roaring 20's was an age of dramatic social and political change. The name was derived from the exuberant, freewheeling popular culture that defines the decade. It was an era that bought dramatic social and political change, freedom to women, and major advances in science and technology. Germany referred to the 1920’s as “The Golden 20’s” or “The Happy 20’s.” For them, it was also a time of freedom and financial stability.

There were many inventions that shaped and transformed America in the 1920’s. Advances in technology led to the age of electricity for many homes in America, which provided them with the power required to run new labor-saving devices such as refrigerators, washing machines, radios, phonographs, vacuum cleaners, electric razors and irons. I’m a seer, (Holy Spirit-filled, not a clairvoyant), so I saw these inventions as allegories and metaphors.

In the 1920’s many inventions were made that changed the course of history. Henry Ford invented the automobile in 1921. The bulldozer and the traffic signal were invented in 1923, and the electric iron and the jukebox were invented in 1927, the first television was also invented in that same year. Penicillin and the first recliner were invented in 1928.The first pair of sunglasses was invented in 1929. The nation’s total wealth more than doubled between 1920 and 1929.


Divine Revelation


The Lord showed me that there was going to be explosive growth in technology in the 2020’s. The Holy Spirit is going to release knowledge that is not known to man in the natural but will be released through divine revelation. When I began to write this, the Holy Spirit reminded me of something that He told me at the beginning of the year. He said: "Your natural mind could not comprehend the things that I will show you in the secret place." Jesus is going to choose the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and choose the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty.

In the book of Revelation chapter 4, the Lord took the apostle John into a heavenly encounter. John saw a door standing open in heaven and heard a voice as a trumpet saying “Come up here and I will show you things which must take place after this.” Immediately he was in the Spirit and he described what he saw in Heaven. Jesus is inviting us to come up to a higher place as He is bringing fresh revelation in the days ahead. He will release fresh manna every morning and fresh quail in the evening.


Kingdom Connections


In the 2020’s, the Lord is going to create kingdom connections. We are going to see brothers and sisters in the faith in synergy as ministries merge. Many of the five-fold ministries will work together and will complement one another rather than control, criticize or gossip. They will no longer be in competition with one another but will cut off those relationships who contend against this move of God that will be sweeping the globe. As iron sharpens iron, they will encourage one another daily, and hold up one another’s arms when they are weary. As I was writing this, I saw particular men and women of God who are called to be ministry forerunners of "The Roaring 20's."


Balance in the Body


Then, the Lord showed me people who were battle weary people from the previous year. This is going to be a time of restoration for those who have testimonies of being delivered from the paw of the lion and the mouth of the bear. They have been through the fires and battled the flames. Those who have been falsely accused and ridiculed are going to receive justice. He is looking for those who will walk in holiness and no longer follow the ways of fleshly desires. As covenant children of God they are always in warfare mode, but as warriors and worshipers they never let their guard down.


The Voice of God


The Lord is raising up prophetic voices. They will not speak on their own accord but they will speak only what they hear the father saying. They recognize His voice because they read the word and spend time with Jesus, Just as Samuel, not one word that they prophesy will fall to the ground. He is raising up intercessors and giving them a blueprint and a battle plan. They will defeat the enemy with the same weapon that he used against them. He is raising up a fearless generation who will submit their lives to the call to transform their nation in The Roaring 20's.


Job 12:22
He uncovers deep things out of darkness,and brings the shadow of death to light.

Daniel 2:22
He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him.

Daniel 12:4
“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”

WISE AS SERPENTS ~ HARMLESS AS DOVES



We are entering a season like no other. We have been experiencing revival meetings across the country and around the world and the presence of God will continue to escalate in the days ahead. There will be ministries of miracles, signs and wonders. There will be apostles and prophets arising but there will also be false prophets so it is imperative that we are able to discern the difference. There are nine spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit mentioned in 1 Corinthians chapter 12. One of the gifts is the “discerning of spirits”. When I looked this scripture up in the Strong’s concordance I found something interesting. The word “spirits” (pneuma) in this particular scripture refers to the Holy Spirit, the human spirit and demonic spirts.) (Strong’s G4151) This gift gives us discernment into all realms of the natural and the supernatural. 

As I was writing this the Lord reminded me of an old story about a woman that rescued a half frozen snake from the snow. The snake pleaded with the woman "Take me in, oh tender woman, "Take me in, for heaven's sake." The woman took the snake into her home, warmed him in a blanket and placed him by the fireplace as she fed him milk and honey. After the snake thawed out and was revived the woman said; I saved you from freezing to death. She kissed him on the head and stroked his beautiful skin. The snake suddenly turned on her and gave her a vicious bite. The woman cried out saying “why did you bite me after I saved your life”? “You know that your bite is poisonous and you know that now I am going to die”. The snake replied: You foolish woman, you knew that I was a snake before you took me in. 

Discernment is going to be crucial in the days ahead and it is imperative that we come into a higher level of discerning. There are not only false prophets but also ministers who are watering down the truth because they don’t understand spiritual things. They speak against the supernatural intervention of God and are misleading many. They are those who are misinformed and therefore could not lead others to what they haven’t experienced themselves. If we are Holy Spirit filled believers, we should not fear being deceived. We serve the same God that we read about in the bible. Joshua asked the Lord to cause the sun to stand still. He did this so that he and his army could continue fighting until daylight. The Lord answered his prayer, and following this battle Joshua led the Israelites to several more victories, ultimately conquering Canaan.

Elijah asked the Lord to stop the rain and it didn’t rain for three and a half years. When he prayed again, it rained, and the earth brought forth her fruit. When Jesus sent the apostles out, He gave them power to cast out unclean spirits, heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease. He commissioned them to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead and cast out demons. He then said “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. He wasn't referring to being evil, but to be wise against the tactics of the enemy. Jesus also said: Most assuredly I say to you, he that believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these will he do because I go unto my father.
Jesus is also commissioning us today to go forth and do the same.


Matthew 10:16
Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves: Therefore be wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

1 Corinthians 2:14
But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

James 5:17-18
Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.

CHOSEN TO CHANGE THE ATMOSPHERE 



Several years ago I was driving in my car with an elderly lady named Florence. She was a born again believer but she wasn’t Holy Spirit filled. I had worship music playing as I always do, and the presence of God began to fill the atmosphere. Florence was in awe at what she was experiencing and I’ll never forget her words. She said “I don’t know what is happening to me but it feels like the music is electric and it is going right through my body”. As the anointing continued to ascend I explained to her that she was feeling the presence of God. The Holy Spirit wants to visit every one of us in our everyday lives. Many of you will begin to experience His manifest presence in your homes, your cars, your prayer times and in your dreams. 

There were several instances in the bible when the glory of God came into a room and the people were so overwhelmed that they were not even able to stand up. In 2 Chronicles chapter five, the Ark of the Covenant was brought into Solomon’s temple. King Solomon and the entire assembly of Israel were before the ark, sacrificing so many sheep and cattle that they could not be recorded or counted. The priests sanctified themselves and were clothed in white linen. There were Levites, singers with cymbals, stringed instruments and harps, along with one hundred and twenty priests sounding trumpets. But notice what happened in verse thirteen.  

When the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord, and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the Lord saying “For He is good, For His mercy endures forever”, then the house of the Lord was filled with a cloud so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the Glory of the Lord filled the house of God.

The Lord is about to visit us once again with His manifest presence. He is about to send His Shekinah Glory. He is going to release His anointing in such a mighty way that whole congregations will be intoxicated when the Holy Spirit enters the room. There will be personal encounters as He meets with us in the secret place. Religious traditions will be annihilated in His glory, bondages will be broken and strongholds will be torn down. He will bring those of us who know Him to a greater level, and multitudes who don't know Him will experience His awe.

He will breathe upon the dry and barren places. Those who are spiritually dead will be raised and restored to new life. Those who are sick will be healed in His presence. Old wine skins will be renewed into new wine skins to hold the new wine. Don’t fear the unknown. Don’t resist His glory and don’t quench His Spirit. He will pour out His Spirit upon all flesh as churches and congregations receive this transition. They will receive a new and fresh outpouring. Shake off all spiritual lethargy and prepare your hearts for this spiritual awakening as Jesus is about to reveal His glory to us in an unprecedented way.


2 Chronicles 5:14
So that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord filled the house of God.

Haggai 2:9
The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,' says the Lord Almighty. 'And in this place I will grant peace,' declares the Lord Almighty."

Acts 2: 17  
And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy.






Psalm 8:3-4
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars,
 which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him,
 and the son of man that You visit him?




While He is perfecting me, He is introducing me to new beginnings.

So what seems to be chaos is only completion and creation occurring simultaneously.
