Jewish year 5778 begins at sundown on Wednesday, September 20. The Lord gave me 3 prophetic words for 5778, and I believe they will encourage you!
Here is what the Lord has told me about Jewish year 5778:
1. Just in time, Holy Spirit is sending you a double portion anointing.
Many of you–especially if you are a prophetic person–have felt like your anointing was gone. You have been through hell and back, and you're through it now; but your experience has left you feeling dry and uninspired.
After praying about this today, I looked out onto my back porch. I often see doves there, but usually only one dove–or, at most, two–at a time. However, this morning, I saw not one or two, but FOUR doves on my porch. Immediately, the Lord spoke to me and told me that He is sending a double restoration of the anointing to His people.
Furthermore, this double portion anointing is coming to you NOW.
This is not one of those prophecies that you have to wait three years to see fulfilled. God has already begun pouring out the first drops of His refreshing, and you will quickly find yourself under a deluge of healing rain if you will believe Him for it.
Joel 2:23 says:
Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God; for He has given you the former rain faithfully, and He will cause the rain to come down for you–the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.”
If you need that double anointing, the Lord told me to tell you these things:
- All the anointing and inspiration that has been stolen from you is NOW going to be restored to you double.
- You will have twice as many inspired ideas as before.
- You will hear God twice as well.
- You will be anointed to prophesy twice as much as you were before.
- You will have twice as many supernatural encounters as you EVER had before.
Beloved, you are not dead. You are not even sleeping. You have been in a time of resting and healing, and now your spirit is going to roar back to life in ways you have never seen before. Hallelujah!
If you need this double portion anointing, put a demand on God to flow through you.
In situations like this, the anointing works like a pump. You have to prime a pump in order for it to produce flow. If you have lost your flow, go ahead and prime your pump. Specifically put a demand on Holy Spirit to fill you with His flow and anointing.
Examples of ways you could do this include:
- Asking Holy Spirit for a word of knowledge or prophecy that you can share to bless someone;
- Doing something creative and asking Holy Spirit to flow through you to accomplish His creative work; or even
- Praying in the Spirit over your day, then immediately carrying out what the Lord gives you unction to do as you prayed in the Spirit.
As you exercise your faith to put a demand on God, you will find Him ready, willing, and eager to answer you with that double portion anointing He has promised.
2. In 5778, exercise your governmental authority more than you ever have before.
Psalm 149:6-9 says:
Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples;
To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute on them the written judgment–this honor have all His saints. Praise the Lord!”
As God's son or daughter, you have the honor of joining with the people of God to:
- Execute vengeance upon the nations, and punishments upon the peoples;
- Bind kings with chains, and nobles with fetters of iron; and
- Execute upon all nations and peoples the written will of God.
In 5778, it will become increasingly important for you to use this authority to see God's will carried out in your sphere and around the world.
How do you exercise your authority? Two ways:
- By letting the high praise of God be in your mouth; and
- By wielding the two-edged sword, which is God's Word.
For decades, God has been renewing His people's understanding of how important it is to confess His Word out loud. By this point, mature believers should be well-versed in the power of speaking God's Word. In 5778, it is time to move from simple understanding to very purposeful action in this area.
All around the globe right now, there are situations which need the governmental interference of God. The situation in North Korea stands out to me as one of the most important challenges that God's people need to address. However, many other situations both in your house and around the world will benefit from God's intervention as well.
For example, think of the impact God's Word could have upon:
- Your state of mind;
- Your marriage;
- Your finances;
- The government of the country in which you reside;
- The unreached people groups who still need to hear the Gospel; and more.
If you would like to receive all that God has for you, I strongly encourage you to set aside 10-15 minutes daily to praise God and confess His Word out loud. Confess His Word over yourself and over world situations that concern you.
If you will do this, you will be exercising the governmental authority that God gave you as His child … and you will see dramatic results. Remember that Isaiah 55:10-11 says:
For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”
3. Expect your intimacy with God to produce visible results this year.
Many of you have been sowing and sowing into the secret place of intimacy with God. You have been doing this not to get any material thing, but out of a true love for God. Your heart has been pure, and your hands have been clean.
Despite this, you have not seen the results manifested in your life that you have been hoping to see. God's Word provides many great and excellent promises about how God will bless you if you diligently seek Him … but you have not yet seen those results.
Your time of waiting has not gotten you down, but you have wondered in your spirit. Like the Psalmist and the saints in Heaven, you have cried, “How long, O Lord, faithful and true?”
Psalm 13:1-2 says:
How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? How long will You hide Your face from me?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? How long will my enemy be exalted over me?”
Although your faith in God has not wavered, you have wondered these same things.
But the Lord told me: 5778 is the year of the Joshuas.
Psalm 12:5 says:
‘For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now I will arise,' says the Lord; ‘I will set him in the safety for which he yearns.'”
Like Joshua, you have lingered long inside the tent of God's presence. You have not departed from His ways, nor from seeking His face. His presence is your greatest love, and serving Him is your supreme pleasure.
And you are about to be elevated.
You are about to see the manifestation of many promises that God has spoken to you. The things He has been whispering in your ear will soon become visible for all to see. Father God will put the fear of the Lord upon all those around you, and they will tremble at your approach.
Joshua 5:1 says:
So it was, when all the kings of the Amorites who were on the west side of the Jordan, and all the kings of the Canaanites who were by the sea, heard that the Lord had dried up the waters of the Jordan from before the children of Israel until we had crossed over, that their heart melted; and there was no spirit in them any longer because of the children of Israel.”
This is the year of Joshua.
Expect God to work miracles on your behalf this year. Expect His anointing to rest upon you. Expect the Commander of the army of the Lord to appear to you in person. Expect a supernatural paving of the way in every situation you encounter.
5778 is the culmination of many long-awaited promises. It is a year that opens a new season of healing, wholeness, and freedom; a new era of taking territory for the King; and a new age of government for all of God's people who will.
