Expectancy for the Future

LookingForwardAs the people of God assemble today, may they build one another up in hope as they look to the future with expectancy for the purposes of God Almighty to be fulfilled in their lives and in their church family. ”So then, let us pursue [with enthusiasm] the things which make for peace and the building up of one another [things which lead to spiritual growth].” (Rom.14:19, Amp)

Equipping to See Clearly

Kathy Gabler — Equipping for understanding and clarity was the theme for the Annual September Dreams, Visions and Prophecy conference.  The following is a summary of some of the notes from that meeting——
GetGlassesFitted.jpgI’m sure we have all wondered at times why everybody does not dream literal, plain dreams with clear communication and no search and discovery needed.  Joseph in the New Testament saw the angel in a dream and understood clearly that the instructions were to flee to Egypt with Baby Jesus and Mary.  Those were literal instructions that they could act on and they did.   However, if we consider other scriptural examples of how God communicated, He often communicated with the prophets of the Old Testament in symbolic language.  The dry bones in Ezekiel and the feet of iron and clay on the statue in Daniel were symbolic.  Even Jesus often spoke in parables instead of literal details, and you know He was communicating with the crowds that kept gathering.  Yet sometimes even the disciples had to ask Him for clarity later.  So, I suspect that having to pursue understanding is part of God’s plan and purpose, probably for reasons like, 1) seeking God for wisdom builds relationship with the Lord, and 2) pursuing understanding is how we develop an ear to hear, and 3) every time we pursue God’s wisdom and clarity, we always discover more than we went looking for.


Kathy will be speaking at Kingdom Congress 2020 which is Mar.4-6.

Time Period the Lord has Made

2020 is the time period the Lord has made (Ps.118:24). We will rejoice because the futureLord has made it in keeping with His purposes and plans. It is a time period that we may not thoroughly understand nor have a complete grasp of. Yet, the times are in His hand (Ps.31:15). Throughout 2020 we will continue to rejoice because the all-wise God is not behind the times nor even trying to catch up. He has already stepped out into tomorrow and bids us come and partake in His worthy enterprise and we will engage His design with energy and expectation of the extraordinary. May the Lord grant you every enabling blessing for His Kingdom purposes in 2020.  “So shall you know skillful and godly Wisdom to be thus to your life; if you find it, then shall there be a future and a reward, and your hope and expectation shall not be cut off.” (Prov.24:14, Amp)

A Paradigm Shift Away

LongRoadYour new season is only a paradigm shift away. It may not be possible for some of us to fulfill our course and walk through the experiences and circumstances that course will take us through, while maintaining our same old paradigms about who God is and how He moves and works in this hour. One of the purposes of seasons is likely the purpose to open up a wider revelation of who God is and what His ways are. (Rom12:2)


To Train our Children in Godly Wisdom

As the people of God assemble today may they rejoice and be glad and grow strong familyBiblein spirit and be filled with wisdom. Jesus was born with purpose and so are we. From the beginning, He not only grew physically but in His spirit and in wisdom for what was to come. One of our major goals for our children in 2020 should be to see them filled with the Spirit and to train them in godly wisdom. “And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace (favor and spiritual blessing) of God was upon Him.” (Lk.2:40)

Great Year to be Alive

(Melissa Gabler) — What a great, great year to be alive! We GET to not only see the shift, we get to BE the shift. Yes, the glory of God is going to be not only seen, but known.  And it’s not because things just got that bad, it’s because things and people (this includes you) are now in place for undeniable God elements.  Get ready.


The New Era and the Church Trampling

Jahweh is raising up His church in this new era. He is raising up His church to transform nations over night. We are getting past religious ineffectiveness and a defeated sense of eschatology and coming to Zion, to the place of the throne of God which is a place of power and dominion. Perhaps we should rehearse John’s exhortation to us that “…as He [JESUS] is, so are we in this world.” (1Jn.4:17) It would then follow that our Lord JESUS IS sitting on the right hand of the throne of Almighty God in the heavenly places (1:20) and that we, like Him, are also sitting with Him [authoritatively positioned] in heavenly places in Christ (2:6). Therefore, there should be authority, power and dominion displayed such as it was when JESUS was on the earth, especially since it is the determined will of God to now show His multi-layered, redemptive wisdom to powers and principalities through the church (Eph.3:10). (First excerpt from Marty’s article “The New Era and the Church Trampling”)

Not Get Off Assignment

May we not get off assignment in this coming year.
“I’m telling you this straight. The Son can’t independently do a thing, only what He sees the Father doing. What the Father does, the Son does.” (Jn.5:19b, Msg)

Discussing Hopes and Victories

May your home be filled with different conversation in the year to come—different because you are no longer discussing threats and defeats but hopes and victories.   “Answer my prayers, O True God, the righteous, who makes me right.  I was hopelessly surrounded, and You rescued me.  Once again hear me; hide me in Your favor;  bring victory in defeat and hope in hopelessness.” (Ps.4:1, The Voice)


The First Step to Defeat Defeat

Father’s strength and wisdom are available for weary people to take the first step after not moving against things that have defeated them in the last year. The time of not doing something about defeating-factors is over. The first step will be admitting there is a problem and wanting the answer, even if it means we have to put forth some effort and make some changes. The first step will be to not wait for others and not wait for those circumstances to change, but begin the change in us.  Ps.37:23— “The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step].” (Amp)


On to Victories

As the people of God assemble today may those whose hearts are heavy from failures, defeats and grief of the past year lift their heads, get a deep breath and realize that they are part of the family of God and that they have strength and fellowship through Christ our Lord and the family of God to go on to victories in the coming year.  “But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory, and the lifter of my head. 4 With my voice I cry to the Lord, and He hears and answers me out of His holy hill. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! (Ps.3:3-4, Amp)


Awesome Reports

In 2019 I am praying to see a lot of posts that start with:

Hey, you guys, you’re not gonna believe this awesome report. . . !!!!!”


Call on Jesus

Call on the name of Jesus throughout the year. Let His name be upon your lips. You will invoke His Name and see Him heal,  see Him deliver others out of impossible strongholds of bondage and strongholds of fear. You will invoke His Name and see how marvelously He delivers you from the threat of harm, from bullies, from a violent spouse or parent or other relative. You will see God deliver elderly people from abuse by their children and others. You will invoke the Name of Jesus and the atmosphere will change.


Shorter Mileage to Victories

There will be shorter mileage to victories. Kid’s Version: We will not get lost on our way to God’s promises. There are areas where “mileage” to victory will be much less than in previous situations. In many cases we have gotten distracted and had to go around numerous obstacles, challenges and roadblocks to get to victory. We have zigged and zagged. In the coming year we will discover that we are able to go in more of a straight line to victory thereby cutting out “extra mileage” as we learn more about Kingdom authority and our position in Christ to speak that authority and act in that authority. The defeating sense of unworthiness will be displaced by a righteous sense of royalty as sons and daughters of the King. Isa.66:8, Amp —Who has heard of such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? Or shall a nation be brought forth in a moment? For as soon as Zion was in labor, she brought forth her children.  Isa.30:21, Amp—And your ears will hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way; walk in it, when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left.
