The year 2020 was a year that we will never forget. It seemed as if a dark cloud hovered over our nation, and the heavens were as brass. We heard people repeatedly say, "Things can't get any worse." But even in the darkest of times the Lord says: "Be still and know that I am God." The Holy Spirit is about to move in a mighty way once again. In October 2019, I shared a prophetic word titled "The Roaring 20's." I wrote about the 1920's which brought about a major change to our culture and impacted all aspects of society in our country. I shared the comparison of the 1920's to this decade of the 2020's.
The Holy Spirit showed me several things pertaining to His plans for the body of Christ. He is about to release revelation to His people as well as an explosive growth in technology. He is about to expose and dismantle religious and man-made traditions that were never ordained or approved by God. It is imperative to have kingdom connections and fellowship with like-minded believers so that your spiritual growth will not be hindered. The Lord is going to raise up prophetic voices and expose the wolves in sheep's clothing. He is preparing His glorious bride for the days ahead.
Many believers are going to have a deeper relationship with Jesus, learn to recognize His voice and understand His ways. This afternoon I read something that Pastor Che Ahn posted on Facebook. He wrote: "At this point, Jesus doesn't need to take the wheel, He needs to pull over and spank some of y'all with His flip flop." Some Christians see Jesus as a man from back in ancient times, but they don't know Him as a friend. Some people think of Him hanging on the cross, but they don't know Him as their Lord and Savior.
The Lord is about to reveal Himself to us in a new way. Jesus is not an image, He's a person. He is not dead, but He is alive. He desires to speak to us and give us spiritual encounters. He told His disciples: "No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you." Although we don't see Him with our physical eyes, He is always present.
Respect and Reverence of God
In the coming days there is going to be a reverential fear of God. This fear is not a distressful emotion of being afraid, but it is a respect and reverence of a Holy God. A God who is omniscient (all knowing) omnipotent (all powerful and all mighty), and omnipresent (always present) He will make Himself known to those who hunger and say, "I pray that if I have found favor in Your sight, show me Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight."
Many people lost their hope this year. Some have lost businesses, some have lost finances, some have lost family members or friends, and many have lost their zeal for God. The Lord is calling us back to a personal relationship with Him. He is calling all of us to come up higher. He wants us to examine our motives and the intents of our hearts. There is a saying in the world to "come clean" meaning to be completely honest; keep nothing hidden. He is asking us to come into the New Year with clean hands and a pure heart.
Many Christians are praying and asking the Lord for a change in our country, but the Lord is saying that He is looking for people to bring the change to our country. The apostle Paul said: "My speech and preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power. The Lord is looking for those that He could use to demonstrate His kingdom on this earth as it is in heaven. It's up to the body of Christ to bring a radical shift in 2021 and He will crown our year with His goodness, and our paths will drip with abundance.
Exodus 33:13 Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is Your people.
Psalms 65:11 You crown the year with Your goodness, and Your paths drip with abundance.
John 15:15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
