On December 26th I posted the article, Standing Firm in 2017. You can read the full article on my Facebook page or on my Charis Partners International website HERE.
I shared the contents of that article along with some very specific details and events for 2017 at a ministry roundtable in December of last year. I will share just a few of the things that the Lord revealed and showed me through a season of fasting and prayer in December 2016 that I believe to be significant for 2017. Remember that our calendar year 2017 is actually the Hebrew year 5777 meaning, THE YEAR OF THE RULING SWORD. We are two months into 2017 and it is clear that the sword of the Lord is moving across the earth.
ABIDING GLORY…YES, ABUNDANTLY MORE…
“For those who choose love; for those who choose to move with me and abide in me allowing my word to abide and come alive in them, I will manifest myself to them in new ways and my glory I will reveal to them in even greater measures. Yes, abundantly more. New realms of My Spirit and My Kingdom will be opened and revealed to those who will separate themselves from every thing that has kept them distant from me. I am the God of the YES and Amen.”
I invite you to take a break from your normal routine right now. Don’t press through this article post in an attempt to finish reading it just yet. If you have arrived at this point and place in your daily routine, it is no accident or coincidence for there are thousands upon thousands of articles and voices clambering for your attention and your affection. The God of heaven, the lover of your soul wants to sing over you and He desires to break in right now so that He might have this dance with you. He desires to hold you close and remind you of His love for you. Find a quiet place and just give Him a few uninterrupted minutes. Quiet your heart, click on the link below and fix your eyes on Jesus and listen very intently as He sings and speaks over you.
Abiding Glory for 2017 Continued: That same morning, I continued to journal what the Lord was speaking
“Beloved, I want to take you from glory…to glory…to glory. This is my personal invitation to you. It will required that you make a very decisive and deliberate choice. It is a decision that only you can make. Its not really a complicated decision. It requires only a simple yet clear Yes. Love is never a maybe. The response to love is either a yes or no! My love for you has always been my unconditional covenant YES. My love for you will always be an eternal YES. There is only one entrance into this place of my presence and glory. It is your YES. It is your yes to an abandoned love. Your yes will eclipse and replace everything you hold close…everything that you cherish and like the Shulamite you will declare, “Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm: for love is as strong as death, Jealousy as cruel as the grave; the flames of fire, A most vehement flame”
The following is simply taken from my journal and therefore I have not made and changes to correct grammar or complete sentences etc.
2017 A YEAR OF SHAKING AND EXPOSURE
- We are at the tipping point. Expect to see a series of shocking National and Global events unfold in 2017. This is connected to the lord’s instruction, exhortation and call to “Gird up your loins”. It will be like one major event after another. THERES WILL BE AN INCREASE IN THE SHAKING BEGINNING IN FEB. SHAKING IN THE NATIONS, SHAKING IN OUR GOVERNMENT AND A GREAT SHAKING WITHIN THE CHURCH.
- 2017 will be a year of exposure with the uncovering and the exposure of the corruption in government, in areas that will surprise most. – what the world experienced during the election with Wiki Leaks is just the forward or introduction of what is unfolding…
- The same is true for The Church. The Holy Spirit will begin to expose the deception and corruption… There is a fire of humility and purging that will sweep across this country. I clearly heard the Lord declare, “JUSTICE WILL ROLL LIKE A RIVER” & ”I WILL BRING JUDGMENT UPON THE STRANGE FIRE”.
- INCREASED PERSECUTION UPON THE TRUE CHURCH… PREPARE FOR THE BACKLASH FROM THE ENEMY BECAUSE OF THE ELECTION RESULTS.
- THE ENEMY WILL BE WOUNDED AND TAKEN BY TOTAL SURPRISE IN THIS ELECTION -WARNING, EVEN A SNAKE CAN BITE INFLICTING DEADLY VENUM AFTER HIS HEAD HAS BEEN SEVERED…Satan is still the prince and power of the air…Gird up your loins and be vigilant. Abide and walk in the Authority of Jesus Christ.
- THE PRIORITY OF PRAYER AND FASTING…set in place an spiritual “IRON DOME” over your family and finances.
- Don’t evaluate your spiritual life by others or by what is spoken, thought, or discerned in the natural! You must evaluate your life “IN MY PRESENCE AND IN MY LIGHT”. In my presence the genuine - the good fruit will be sorted and separated. Only the fruit that I have produced in you shall remain! What is the fruit on your tree? The true church must examine itself in my presence, in my light. If the fruit is bad, if it is counterfeit or if no spiritual fruit exists…YOU CANNOT TRUST THE TREE! EXAMINE YOUR OWN LIFE/HEART!
- MANY ARE DESPERATE AND CHASING AFTER AN EXPERIENCE OR AN ENCOUNTER…IF IT’S A GENUINE MOVE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, IF ITS TRULY GOD, YOU WILL SEE AN INCREASING HUNGER AND THIRST FOR GODS WORD!!! THERE WILL BE THE EVIDENCE OF HOLINESS! THERE WILL BE THE EVIDENCE OF MY POWER AND GLORY!
2017 A YEAR OF TRANSITION AND CHANGE.
- Because of the exponential increase of deception and evil it is important that my people align themselves under the spiritual authority and covering of true Biblical Apostolic Government. Both protection and blessing will flow from this place of divine order. Holiness, Humility, Healing, freedom and the Fruit of my Spirit will be clearly evident where my Apostolic government is established. My power and glory will be both seen and experienced.
2017 IS A YEAR FOR FREEDOM- ONLY A FREE MAN CAN LEAD SOMEONE TO FREEDOM… I will be realigning those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. I will give them shepherds after my heart. I will place them into a river that flows with life. They must hear my voice and obey. Like Abraham many will have to leave family and relationships to step into the river. They are choosing life or death. Obedience and timing are critical. Delayed obedience will result in deafness and confusion. Listen, hear, obey!
