THE LION WILL ROAR & THE EAGLE WILL SOAR IN 2024
Everyone is wondering what God is about to do in the New Year of 2024. As I was seeking the Lord about what to write, I came up with some interesting titles, such as "Get Ready to Soar in 2024," and "God will Restore in 2024." Those are catchy phrases, but what does the Lord really have in store for the next year? Will there be war? Will there be famine? Or are we coming into a revival that will shake the nations?'
Many of you have endured major battles the past few years, and you may have felt like things have taken a turn for the worst. Although your life may seem to be a battleground, you have actually been on a training ground, equipping you for the next chapter of your life. While it may have seemed like its been a constant struggle, the Lord has actually been building strength, resilience, and perseverance in you.
The Lord says, "Every stone that's been hurled against you will be used as a stepping stone to take you to the next level. Every fiery dart and lie that came against you will boomerang back to the sender. Every challenge that you faced will be used as a testimony for others to be set free. Every battle that you went through taught you how to endure trials. I am about to restore everything that was stolen. I am the God of restoration, and I am about to step in and turn your situation around for My glory."
An Open Door in 2024
In the book of Revelation, chapter four, John had a life-changing encounter with an open door in Heaven. It was a door into the spirit realm. As Believers in covenant with Jesus, we too have access to this open door. The Holy Spirit is calling us to a deeper level of intimacy with Him, where we can experience supernatural revelations and encounter heavenly realities beyond our natural realm.
The Lord says, "I am about to reveal My mysteries through My Word. I want to show you the authority and power that you have through Me. You are not limited to what you see in the physical world. I am calling you to step into the fullness of what I have for you. There is an invitation to come up to a higher place in the heavenly realms. Your prayers and intercession will bring you into a place of divine encounters with Me."
"The LORD also will roar from Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; the heavens and earth will shake; but the LORD will be a shelter for His people, and the strength of the children of Israel." (Joel 3:16)
Technology Forevermore 2024
The advancement of technology is exciting to some, but to others it is frightening. Some experts believe that artificial intelligence will soon surpass human intelligence, as it is already beginning to replace forms of entertainment, education and many jobs worldwide. There are fears of potential cyber attacks that could cripple the grid and shut down the internet. The latest buzz is about implanting a chip in our hands that can be used for financial transactions and store medical information, eliminating the need for cards and cash.
The Lord says, "Fear not. I am the God in Heaven who makes mysteries known. I reveal deep and hidden things, I know what is in the darkness, and light dwells in Me. I will uncover deep things out of darkness and bring the shadow of death to light. As the darkness covers the earth, and deep darkness the people; I will arise over you, and My glory will be seen upon you (Isaiah 60:2)."
The Eagle Will Soar in 2024
The Lord brought me back to a prophetic dream that I had many years ago. He told me that He was raising up prophetic voices, as well as seer prophets and visionaries. It was actually two profound dreams/encounters that I will never forget. In the first dream, I was with a lady who I believe was an angel. We were in a huge, ancient place, surrounded by mountains of ivory. As I was walking with her, we saw numerous eagles inside cages made of wood and metal.
Each eagle was in its own cage. They were not all full-grown eagles, but they were different sizes and colors. We noticed one young eaglet that broke out of a wooden crate by breaking the wood with its beak. It then pushed the wood up and hopped out. Although it was an eagle, it was a very young, and not yet able to fly. When the lady saw this, she laughed in amusement and gently placed the eaglet back into the crate because it wasn't time for it to be released.
As I was thinking about this dream, a video came up on social media of people releasing an eagle from a crate that looked exactly like the one in my dream. The eagle was wounded, and they kept him in the crate until he was restored and ready to be released. He then flew away over the ocean.
The Lord says, "I am raising up a new generation of prophets, prophetic voices, and visionaries from among you. There are young eagles in training who are ready to soar to new heights. They have been called to speak My truth and share My vision with the world. I've placed My Word in their hearts and they will speak forth My Word with boldness, and nations will be transformed. Some will speak before kings and priests."
"Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken! Who can but prophesy?" (Amos 3:7-8)
My Voice Will Thunder Across the Nations Once Again
Although we are in a time of war, and everything that can be shaken is being shaken, the Lion of Judah – the Almighty God – is still on the throne and still in control. He is the God who created the heavens and the earth and nothing is impossible with Him. Psalm 29:4 says, "The voice of the LORD is powerful, the voice of the LORD is majestic."
"For thus says the LORD of hosts: 'Once more (it is a little while) I will shake Heaven and Earth, the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,' says the LORD of hosts. 'The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,' says the LORD of hosts. 'The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,' says the LORD of hosts. 'And in this place I will give peace,' says the LORD of hosts." (Haggai 2:6-9)
The Lord says, "My voice will thunder across the nations once again, and I will shake the sea and the dry land. I will shake the nations, and the glory of the latter house will be greater than the former house.
"Do not fear their faces. Do not fear recession, because the silver and the gold is Mine, and the wealth of the world is laid up for the just. Don't be moved by what you see, but just pray and believe, and your intercession will turn this nation around for My glory."
