Psalm 46 says, “The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered and were moved; He raised His voice; the earth melted … Be still and know (recognize and understand) that I Am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth! The Lord of hosts is with us… !” (Psalm 46:6, 10-11, AMP).
“The Lord roars from Zion” (Joel 3:16a, MEV). From this Scripture we developed our concept for Head of the Year 5780, entering this new era with the roar of the Lord. During that Head of the Year 5780 gathering on Sept. 26-29, 2019, I began to prophesy that the nations would come into turmoil until Passover.
At Starting the Year Off Right 2020, God was saying that there would be a massive plague-like invasion that would test us through Passover. When I prophesied that in Las Vegas on Jan. 26, I did get several comments and certain rebuttals for repeating that our nation would go into some sort of major trial through April. I believe that we are seeing this not only in this nation, but throughout the nations at this time in history.
In Joel 2 and 3, we find these statements: “Do not be afraid, land; exult and rejoice, for the Lord has done great things! Do not be afraid, beasts of the field, because the wild pastures flourish, because the tree bears its fruit; the fig tree and the vine yield their abundance. And children of Zion, exult and rejoice in the Lord your God” (Joel 2:21-23a).
” Hurry and come, all you surrounding nations, and gather there. Bring down Your warriors, O Lord. Let the nations be roused, and go up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; for there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations. … Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision” (Joel 3:11-12, 14).
Passover Will Become a Dividing Line
As God’s kingdom people, we must understand this is where the Spirit of God now has us in the earth realm. We must always hear what the Spirit of God is saying to the church. Several interpretations could be given over the situation of COVID-19 as havoc occurs throughout the nations. Some would even say that this virus has stopped any movement where revival can continue. I would say: “God has put a pause until He sees who is willing to cross over with Him through His blood at Passover.” This Passover will become a dividing line for our future!
Cindy Jacobs prophesied to me on Jan. 3, 2020 that in the first three months of this year, I would have to be cautious in how much I travel. I had gone 570,000 miles last year and was weary from all the travel and warfare. She actually shared that the Lord was saying that I needed rest, but I recognized the admonition to be a caution on my travel for the first three months of 2020. Therefore, I have watched the Lord make sure I’ve had more time to rest and write, and have actually stopped most international travel during these three months.
Susan Stanfield, who has worked here for 40 years, shared with us that the Lord told her to “gird up your loins for spring storms ahead.” I believe this is what God is saying to all of us. At the beginning of 2020, the Lord said to me to “Tighten your belts!” This is the same principle as “girding up your loins.” The Lord said this would be a hard financial year. However, if we would gird up our loins, we would end up doing exploits.
Let’s get ready to cross over!
Overcome Fear with Laughter
Adar is known as a month for abounding joy, and the power of barrenness being broken. We can invite the Lord to quicken our emotions so that our expectations are aligned with what He desires to bring forth at this time. During this Purim week, declare that plans for destruction are being overturned, and that your fear will be overcome by laughter!
The Redemptive Work of Trauma (Linda Heidler)
This is also a month of deliverance, and how we speak determines how our freedom will manifest. As Linda Heidler shared yesterday morning: forgiveness plays a big part in our restoration and freedom. Unhealed trauma perpetuates trauma, and since trauma is an issue of the spirit, not just the soul, true healing can only come through the Spirit of God. He is able to work trauma for our good! When we are delivered from areas of loss, we can speak with authority to the demons holding others captive. God’s redemptive work forms our testimony of overcoming trauma, which can then set others free!
The Month of Naphtali: Preparing to LEAP (Robert Heidler)
As Robert Heidler taught during our celebration service, this is a time to leap. However, if our lives are not overflowing with the joy of the Lord, we will not have the strength to resist the enemy and will remain captured in an old season. The Lord desires to give us hinds’ feet to become like a deer let loose!
Robert shared five key ways to help you prepare to leap all month long:
- Choose to rejoice—whether you feel like it or not.
- Root out depression!.
- Develop a war strategy—you are in a battle.
- Break off wrong decrees—know what God has said.
- Discover your true identity.
Your Time to Climb
God says, “I am releasing a new level of faith within My people! What you did not see in the last season you will now begin to see. You will now begin to see and ascend in a new way. Reach up and climb the waterfall before you. As you reach up, a stairway will form to where I am taking you.
“Climb what I have set in front of you! Climb what I have set in front of you! Although the enemy has laughed and said you will never get to the top and through the next door, this is your time to climb the stairs I have placed in front of you. I am already behind that door at the top of the stairs and laughing at your enemy.
“In this season of overcoming joy, begin to release your laugh and experience My freedom that will enable you to overcome. Even though you may feel you are at the point of absolute failure and defeat, My angels will help you ascend, step by step, and cause you to keep pressing forward.
“I am opening a new portal in the heavenly realm and assigning new angels to help escort you up into the heavenly places and back onto the earth. I stand in the heavenlies and laugh, and I cause you to stand in the earth and laugh at your enemies. For at this time and this season, I will cause you to laugh at your enemies as an overcoming and victorious spirit rises within you as you have not had in times past.
“There is a new source of wind in the earth. This movement is not just My breath that is going forth, but the wind created by the wings of My angelic hosts. I am releasing a unique host to create winds to blow away occult coverings, and to bring forth winds of refreshing and rain from the atmosphere.
“There are things I am beginning to shake within you that will cause a new breath to come into you. As you ascend, you will be positioned on My new trajectory of advance.” (Prophetic word given by: Brian Kooiman, Sheryl Price, Chuck Pierce, Mistie Lohse, Eleanor Roehl, Lisa Lyons and Dee Dee Roberts)
