It is the Year of the Woman

Women in ministry and leadership will be released globally across the Body of Christ. The two righteous seeds of Michal Ann Goll and Jill Austin have been sown into the ground and there will be a harvest of women in both spiritual and secular leadership arising to be champions of the poor, in justice, prayer and creativity flowing freely as the prophetic anointing increases in Jesus' name.

It is a Time When the 9 Gifts and the 9 Fruits Come Together

It is time for the fullness of fruit and gifts of the Spirit to come together. Character to carry the gift will be emphasized and accountability that empowers will help create new wineskins for the new wine.

It is a Time When Love Will Have a Say!

Ministerial groups will freshly come together promoting the love of God versus a political system of competition. LOVE L.A.! LOVE PHOENIX! LOVE MINNEAPOLIS! LOVE ATLANTA! LOVE DALLAS! LOVE NEW YORK! LOVE SEATTLE! LOVE CLEVELAND! LOVE NASHVILLE! (You name your city!) LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! One morning, I heard the Holy Spirit singing to me, "All we need is love!"

It is Time for the Realignment of the Nations for Good and Evil

Territorial spirits of darkness are in a time of realigning themselves. Some of the old dark ways of communism are beginning to resurface in both old and new places wedded with strong totalitarianism and militant Islam. Be alert and watchful!

It is a Time When Israel Becomes a Heavy Stone!

It is the time of Zechariah 12:1-3 when Jerusalem becomes a heavy stone for all who touch her in an ungodly manner. The jealousy of God will arise against those nations who attempt to divide Jerusalem. What God has joined together, let no man separate!

It is a Time When the Josephs are Released from Prison

Men and women tried in the fiery furnaces of testing will begin to emerge in this hour across the nations of the earth. They will have the spirit of wisdom and excellence resting upon their lives. Humility will be their outstanding characteristic in Jesus' name.

It is Time for Property Procurement

For some, it is time to purchase property, land and gold. It is a time when wise investments now will pay off later. Whole strip malls and department stores will go up for sale and the discerning and wise will purchase property (in certain situations) for a dime on the dollar.

It is a Time When the Justice Riders and the Justice Writers are Released Throughout the Nations

This will become more than the latest theme or fad in the Body of Christ. Even as the Wesleyans had their circuit riders, there will now be global justice riders who, through the influence of the pen, will undo the injustices of the past.

It is a Time When the Church Receives the Spirit of Adoption

We will receive a Spirit of adoption that will cause us to enjoy and embrace people of different backgrounds than what we are accustomed to. New faith-based adoption agencies will come into being, bringing about a solution to the abortion industry.

It is a Time When a Major Turn is Taken to Begin the End of the Worldwide Child Sex Trade Slave Industry

I have seen a major sex trade slavery ring being broken up for the glory of God in South East Asia. This will have ripple effects around the world and the dominos will begin to tumble! God has on His heart a movement where "every child has a dream fulfilled."

It is a Time for the Revival of the Resurrection of the Dead, Both Physically and Spiritually

Yes, this is the time for the revival of the resurrection of the dead to emerge. Whole churches that have been given up for dead will be revived through the Spirit of Prophecy and Intercession. People will be literally raised from the dead in various locations; the news will spread and the world will marvel.

It is a Time When the Holy Spirit Gives Out Wings to Fly Higher than You Have Ever Been Before

I hear the Holy Spirit saying, "Soar to new heights!" Yesterday's seeming defeats will be turned into tomorrow's peaks. It is time to fly higher than you have ever flown before. New heights of delighting in God are yours through authentic, pure worship.

It is a Time When the Connection Between Revelation 3:20 and Revelation 4:1 is Seen and Manifested

The key of intimacy to open Heavens is being offered. Some will take this for themselves as individuals and some for their congregation. But the Lord is looking for those who will answer the knock at the door for an entire city or region and welcome a glorious invasion of divine visitation.

It is a Time When Spontaneous Healings Break Forth in the Atmosphere of High Praise!

Electric praise will come forth and the dancing hand of God will be released to move across entire assemblies and spontaneous healings and miracles will break out. It is breakout time for the Holy Spirit where High Praises are released from His people.

I trust these few thoughts will encourage your heart and stir up your faith. We see in part and prophesy in part. Well, this is part of what I am seeing and hearing in the Spirit and I trust that it will mesh in with the part that the Lord is showing you as well!

God Bless You in 2009 and Beyond!
