Word of the Lord for 2022
This will be an exciting, intense year for the church! The Lord has much before us and we, the church, will need to arise in His Powerful Spirit to see the things which He wants accomplished. Victory always comes through warefare! Warfare against an opponent that is easy never builds strength, power, nor endurance. But when the enemy comes with intensity, then the victoy will bring joy but also the growth that will come in Christ through the battle.
This will be a year where the enemy will come like a storm! He will come to destroy and to take captives and dominion! The warfare will be intense and continuous but the church will arise as never before! Hearts will be stirred to overcome through the victory of Jesus. Decrees will be made over indiviual churches, regions, and even larger geographical areas! The battle will be carried to the enemy in every sphere of family, church, state, and nation. Individual Christians and whole churches will be made stronger. growth in Christ-likeness will be exponential.
This growth will bring about a great outbreak of signs, wonders, and miracles. But it will not just be in the church gatherings. We will see people praying for people in the marketplace and great, mighty miraculous things taking place. These signs and wonders will be encouragement for the body but will also serve as a sign to the lost. Many lost will flock to the church to become part of what the Lord is doing in His power.
Many who have been lukewarm in the past will either become hot or will leave. There will be a winnowing and a shaking within the body of Christ which will affect every group, denomination, and body. Even as He spoke in Hebrews 12, the Lord will bring about a body that will be composed of His people who walk in His power and by His direction.
Compromise will be cleansed from the lives of the people and from the churches. In those churches and denominations where compromise has been accepted, there will be a shaking that will bring some out of those situations. Some who refuse to become more in alignment with the will of Father will be shaken and leave just as they did in the time of Christ and in first century church, Some of those who have compromised in the past and will not rejust their thinking to that of Christ may well be removed especially if they are in a position of leadership.
Because of the greater attack of the enemy, we will see some people affected because they do not have a good relationship with leadership or the brethren in the church. Those who resist the leadership of the church will leave or the Lord will remove them. The Lord will not allow rebellion within His body. Relationships will need to be properly aligned and positioned within the body where they are planted by the spirit. The enemy will try to remove each from their covenantal relationships and to separate them from the body of Christ! In some situations, because the leadership of the body is compromised, there will not allow leaders who will not lead properly.
For those who are leaders, they must have good relationships with other leaders. This will be a time when all people will need close relationships within the body and between sister churches through the leadership of those bodies. The leaders must step up and take a true fatherly role in leading the church. A church whose leaders will not form good relationships with other leaders and churches will be as an individual who does the same. They will be left alone and defenseless when the enemy attacks. But for those who will form those Godly relationships, they will be stronger and will have resources when the enemy attacks.
As the people arise and the power of the Lord is seen in the Lives of the people, it will bring about a great awakening within the church and in the surrounding communitities. The lost will come to the Lord as they see the people of God arising in their faith and in the power of the Lord. The zeal of the people and the greater level of holiness will be seen and will accomplish much for the lost to see. Great numbers of young people will be drawn to the body of Christ. This younger generation will bring a great fervor which will bring even more of their generation.
This awakening and revival will be met by great opposition by the enemy and the world! Even those in high places will come against the work. But, the Lord and His people will prevail and the word will go forth in power and might! The enemy will try to attack to an even greater degree with perversions and persecution. This, too, will cause the people of God to walk in a closer relationship with the Lord in order to overcome. The strong will arise and do great exploits through the Holy Spirit. As the Church is strengthened and grows, there will be great advancement for the Kingdom of our Lord! This advancement will be felt in other countries and nations. We will see the awakening and the revival extend the Kingdom into the whole earth!
