2023 Declarations #1

I declare that in 2023:
1. THERE WILL BE A Fresh Outpouring of the Supernatural.
Kids Version: We declare that we will speak the words that bring heaven to earth.
Numerous people will be anointed by THE Prophet to prophesy awesome stuff. Your cry will be “Oh, God, let me prophesy the awesome, the extraordinary, the unconventional of your power, your love, your compassion, your wisdom, your provision.”
1Cor.14:3,TPT—“But when someone prophesies, he speaks to encourage people, to build them up, and to bring them comfort.”

Breakthrough Bringing Changes

Kathy–I went to bed with a sense of a storm gathering and I fell asleep praying.  I stirred once or twice with a definite awareness of war in the heavenlies.  A little after 3:00 A.M., I awoke to the sounds of battle, swords clashing and noisy chaos.  In a vision, I watched silhouettes in battle and knew I was seeing war in second heaven.  I thought of the archangel Michael warring to get the answer to Daniel’s prayer to him and I realized this war was getting God’s will to earth again. I did not have the pulse of what God was doing or what prayers He was answering, so I knelt on the bed and asked Him, “How do I pray?  What do I do?”  But His answer was surprising, “Just watch what I’m doing.”  So, I silently watched and waited for God’s outcome.  Lightning flashed and thunder crashed so loudly in the vision that it seemed to be a real storm inside the hotel room until 3:45 A.M. When the battle sounds subsided, I could only hear the sound of rain, heavy rain.  The vision continued.  I saw the sides of a river being torn away by the force of gushing flood waters.  I knew I was seeing a breakthrough that night that would bring changes as surely as the gushing waters were changing the course of that river.  I was reminded of 2Sam.5:20, and Baal-perazim, which means “the Lord of breakthroughs” or the “Owner of breakthroughs”.  I fell into a deep sleep, confident God was doing something awesome and had broken through opposition to get things from Heaven to earth.


Seeing From Heaven to Earth

Kathy — We seek first the Kingdom by looking to the King, the All-that’s-needed, Present-tense, Undefeatable I AM who is the core of “as it is in heaven”After looking to Him we can see as He sees.  Seeing from heaven to earth is a different dynamic than from earth to heaven.  From heaven we look through His scope and see where the lines fall and should fall rather than looking up through the chaos and disorder of earth.  From heaven to earth, His wisdom and intent override emotion and memories and experience and preferences and mis-beliefs and needs and longings and grief and impatience and fear that can distort our thinking.


Heaven-to-Earth

Kathy — We have to have our minds renewed to think like our Father. A renewed mind equips us to walk in dominion because we are enabled to discern both what’s going on and what to allow in earth that aligns with “as in heaven”. When Jesus taught the disciples to pray “Father, Your will be done on earth as in heaven”, who knew how much the answer to that prayer would extensively involve sons and daughters? We are all involved in this heaven-to-earth process, and our starting posture is looking to Him.  


A Better Way to Live

CloudSunBreakThruLimitations bring groaning, despair and hopelessness. There is a better way to live. “Thy Kingdom come.” We must get the conduct and relationships of heaven into this earth. The fruit of the Spirit (Gal.5:22-25) manifests the conduct and relationships of heaven. We must get the power and benefits of heaven into this earth. The gifts of the Spirit (1Co.12:7-11) manifest the power of heaven over our limitations. 


Settle For Nothing Less

As the people of God assemble today, may they settle for nothing less than the extraordinary of Heaven in their midst. May they not look to those things known only by religious sentiment. May they lift up their heads and look to where there is transforming power and radical answers that change individuals and grip them with an insatiable vision for the Kingdom of Heaven in the earth.  “Manifest your kingdom realm, and cause your every purpose to be fulfilled on earth, just as it is fulfilled in heaven.” (Matt.6:10, TPT)  (Kingdom Congress Mar.7-9, 2018 Theme: “From Heaven to Earth”)

Embracing a New Era

The coming of a new year finds many people hoping for a new era, a new season. Many have hopes and dreams that a new season will hold something fresh and fulfilling. There is a God-something in us that urges us to reach beyond what we have experienced and strive for more than we have known. We so desire to eagerly respond to the “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” invitation of Jer.33:3. We want to see and experience the “never seen” and “never known” which is beyond our own capacity so that we may know resolve and victories and fulfillment that have, heretofore, been beyond our reach.
