Below is my prophetic word for 2014. The Lord actually gave me this word in late December of 2013. I recently shared it at my meeting for Awake The Bride Ministries last Tuesday, January 14, 2014. I pray that it is a blessing to all who read it.
I. A YEAR IN WHICH THE BRIDAL FLAME SHALL BE LIT – A PASSION IN THE HEART OF HIS BRIDE SHALL BE IGNITED -
“At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps.”
Matthew 25: 1-4.
I heard the Lord say, referring to His Bride, that “2014 is a year in which her lamp shall be lit. And with the lighting of the flame, she shall never be the same. A passion shall be ignited in her heart, a passion that shall not go away. O hear what I say, O hear, what I say.” Like the Shulammite in Song of Solomon, there will be a searching and seeking after the Lord in 2014 like not before in the Body of Christ. There will be a spiritual hunger for Him like not before. And although we will commune deeply with Him, we will hunger for more.
II. A YEAR OF THE RISE OF THE ABIGAILS AND OF THE ABIGAIL ANOINTING–
“When Abigail saw David, she quickly got off her donkey and bowed down before David with her face to the ground. She fell at his feet and said, ‘My lord, let the blame be on me alone. Please let your servant speak to you; hear what your servant has to say. May my lord pay no attention to that wicked man Nabal. He is just like his name – his name is Fool, and folly goes with him. . . .’”
I Samuel 25: 23-25.
“My Abigails will rise in this hour. They will be those who know how to speak to the King. For Abigail knew how to speak to David, the king. Abigails will rise in this hour who know how to speak to Me. And although they may have been previously married to foolish things, they shall now be married to Me.”
“Then David sent word to Abigail, asking her to become his wife. His servants went to Carmel and said to Abigail, ‘David has sent us to you to take you to become his wife.’ She bowed down with her face to the ground and said, ‘Here is your maidservant, ready to serve you and wash the feet of my master’s servants.’ Abigail quickly got on a donkey and, attended by her five maids, went with David’s messengers and became his wife.”
I Samuel 25: 39-42.
This will be a year where it will be important to know how to properly speak to and interact with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ.
III. A YEAR WHERE THOSE WHO PREVIOUSLY STUTTERED AND STAMMERED WILL NOW SPEAK AND LEAD–
“Moses said to the Lord, ‘O Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.’ The Lord said to him, ‘Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.’”
Exodus 4: 10-12.
I heard the Lord say that “those who previously stuttered, or could not speak, will now speak and lead.” Just like Moses, they will speak and lead. The Lord in this hour is not looking for the eloquent, but for the faithful. He is also looking for a company of people that will be true to Him, who will say, what He says to say, and do what He says to do, when He says to say it, and do it when He says to do it. You may feel unqualified by man’s standards, but in God’s eyes you may be highly qualified. Always remember, that God’s qualifications and man’s are not necessarily one and the same.
IV. A YEAR OF RECOMPENSE, RESTORATION, AND RESTITUTION
“Now Elisha had said to the woman whose son he had restored to life, ‘Go away with your family and stay for a while wherever you can, because the Lord has decreed a famine in the land that will last seven years.’ The woman proceeded to do as the man of God said. She and her family went away and stayed in the land of the Philistines seven years. At the end of the seven years she came back from the land of the Philistines and went to the king to beg for her house and land. The king was talking to Gehazi, the servant of the man of God, and had said, ‘Tell me about all the great things Elisha has done.’ Just as Gehazi was telling the king how Elisha had restored the dead to life, the woman whose son Elisha had brought back to life came to beg the king for her house and land Gehazi said, ‘This is the woman, my lord the king, and this is her son whom Elisha restored to life.’ The king asked the woman about it, and she told him. Then he assigned an official to her case and said to him, ‘Give back everything that belonged to her, including all the income from her land from the day she left the country until now.’.”
II Kings 8: 1-6.
I heard the Lord say, that “those that have had things taken away from them will be restored. For restitution will need to be made.” The Lord will require that restitution be made to them, just as the king required that restitution be made to the Shunnamite woman. I note also that the Shunnamite woman was given full remedy. Things were not just partially restored to her, but full restoration and restitution was made to her. Similarly, this is a year of full restoration and restitution in the Body of Christ for those who have been faithful to Him.
V. A YEAR IN WHICH HIS BRIDE WILL PLEASE HIM MORE THAN ANY OTHER.
“And this is how she would go to the king: Anything she wanted was given to her to take with her from the harem to the king’s palace. In the evening she would go there and in the morning return to another part of the harem to the care of Shaashgaz, the king’s eunuch who was in charge of the concubines. She would not return to the king unless he was pleased with her and summoned her by name. When the turn came for Esther(the girl Mordecai had adopted, the daughter of his uncle Abihail) to go to the king, she asked for nothing other than what Hegai, the king’s eunuch was in charge of the harem, suggested. And Esther won the favor of everyone who saw her. She was taken to King Xertes in the royal residence in the tenth month, the month of Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign. Now the king was attracted to Esther more than to any of the other women, and she won his favor and approval more than any of the other virgins. So he set a royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti. “
“This is a year, says the Lord, where My Bride will please Me more than any other. She will have eyes and ears only for Me. This is also a year where you will begin to see a division between the Bride and the Church.”
VI. A YEAR OF THE KING AND HIS COURT–
“Your throne, O God, will last forever and ever; a
scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.”
Psalm 45: 6.
While praying, I had a vision where I saw the Lord Jesus dressed in his royal robes. He was dressed in pure white. I also saw royal blue and purple velvet robes over the white. His robes were long and flowing. I was awestruck by His royalty. I saw Him walking through a great hall. A crown was on his head, not the crown of thorns, but a beautiful gold crown. His crown glistened. He had something in his hand. It looked like a piece of parchment. He nailed it to the wall. Although I did not see exactly what was written on the paper, I knew in my spirit that it was a paper informing Heaven and those on earth that His Court would be convening. He then said, “I will come a courting in 2014. I will hold Court. Tell My People, that I will hear their petitions, that they are to bring forth their petitions to Me. For others, I have heard their prayers and petitions, and I will render justice. I will render justice in this hour.” This then is truly a year of the King and His Court. For Jesus is coming to court His Bride, and He is also coming to convene His Court in this hour.
VII. A YEAR OF THE RISE OF FEARLESS WOMEN–
“But Jael, Heber’s wife, picked up a tent peg and a hammer and went quietly to him while he lay fast asleep, exhausted. She drove the peg through his temple into the ground, and he died. Barak came by in pursuit of Sisera, and Jael went out to meet him, ‘Come,’ she said, ‘I will show you the man you’re looking for.’ So he went in with her, and there lay Sisera with the tent peg through his temple – dead.”
Judges 4: 21-22.
“This is a year of the rising of My fearless women. My women will do what some of My men cannot do. There are also women who will receive strong anointings in the Spirit this year. In some cases, they were not my first choice. But to those who prove themselves faithful and obedient to Me, shall receive. Let My fearless women arise in this hour.”
VIII. A YEAR OF GREATER DISCERNMENT–
“’For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect – if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time.’”
“Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil.”
I Thessalonians 5: 21-22.
As I was praying, I felt the Lord’s deep concern over many of His children not properly discerning between what is false and what is true, what is genuine and what is not. The Lord is looking this year for greater discernment within His Body. And He will give greater discernment to His children this year. We need only to ask. And we should ask daily. I felt also his deep, longing desire that His children come to Him and cultivate such an intimate relationship and fellowship with Him that they will have such a relationship with the person of the Holy Spirit that they will know, and know that they know, what is true from what is false, and what is genuine and from the Lord and what is not. And no one, including any false prophet, will be able to deceive them.
IX. A YEAR OF CATAPAULT OVER THE FORCES OF DARKNESS –
“When the three hundred trumpets sounded, the Lord caused the men throughout the camp to turn on each other with their swords.”
The Lord in this hour is raising up a great army like that of Gideon’s three hundred men. This army will be under the direction and control of the Lord and will prevail over the forces of darkness. The Lord in this hour is releasing strategies in the Spirit and of the Spirit to defeat the enemy, who has already been vanquished at the cross, and greater understanding of the weapons of our warfare and their utilization.
X. A YEAR OF THE KINGDOM–
“Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, ‘The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is within you.’”
Luke 17: 20-21.
This will be a year when many will realize that the Kingdom of God lives within them. They will begin to understand the true meaning of the Kingdom. They will begin to become “Kingdom –minded.” This will also be a year where we will see things from the Father’s point of view and not our own.
XI. A YEAR IN WHICH BLOODLINES WILL BE CLEANSED–
“Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.”
I felt the Lord say that this would be a year “in which bloodlines would be cleansed. The cleansing of bloodlines will be done by My Holy Spirit. Generational iniquities and generational curses will be broken. Generational blessings will be restored.” Please pray and ask the Lord to cleanse your bloodline. Ask Him if there are any areas regarding your bloodline that you need to repent. The Holy Spirit will lead you and guide you in this area. He is eager to do this holy work.
XII. A YEAR IN WHICH CHRISTIANS WILL BEGIN TO ASSERT THEIR RIGHTS –
I felt the Lord say that this would be a year where Christians would begin to assert their rights and to have a voice. I believe that many in the days ahead will be called to make a stand for Christ. I am not sure when or how this will take place, but I believe the Lord is preparing many now to do what they will need to do for Him in the coming days.
There are other things also that the Lord has showed to me. Some I am led to mention here; others I am led to keep in personal intercessory prayer until the Lord releases me to share them. I saw riots in the streets of major cities in America. These riots were over food and the denial of human services and subsidies by the government. Many governments all over the earth will become unstable. I saw demonstrations in many nations and altercations between the police of those nations and the demonstrators. I saw an increase in demonic activity in the world, but also a corresponding increase in the power and authority of Christians for breakthrough and deliverance. I felt the Lord say that this is not a time to fear or to have fear, but “to know Him, love Him, honor Him, obey Him, and serve Him, fully and completely.” He will do the rest. It is not a time to trust in the world systems or world governments, but instead to trust totally in Him. He has promised to never leave us or forsake us. He will be with us. I wish all reading this a truly blessed New Year in Him.
