2010 IS A NEW DECADE AND NOT JUST A NEW YEAR:
2010 is a prophetic year, it is not just a start of a new year but is a start of a new decade. In every decade there are always things that define it and also define the generation. For example, music, movies, events, clothing styles, and mindsets to name a few. This new decade will be defined, as well as marked, as a new season of the young, the youth receiving a touch from the Lord ushering in the glory of God. They will be a part of a change of legislation that will begin to favor the Lord’s righteous cause.
- The youth will be anointed and arise: Youth groups, school campuses, and colleges will experience great visitations, and moments of God’s outpouring. The gathering of the youth and the visitation of God on this generation will mark and define this new decade. The youth will be part of this generation who will help put back what was pushed out during the baby boomer and prior generations.
- Baby Boomers: God hasn’t forgotten the Baby Boomer Generation. Some have been part of Satan’s plan to try to cause ungodly legislation and a godless society. God will powerfully use many of the Baby Boomers like He did with Joshua and Caleb in the days of Israel. They were older than the generation they led into the promises of God. This generation of youth will have what those had as the scripture says a “different spirit” like with Joshua and Caleb who will lead them. They will help this nation inherit its promise. There will be a spiritual awaking not just on the youth but upon grandparents and those of this Baby Boomer Generation. God is reaching out to Baby Boomers! There will be a harvest from this generation, of many who rejected the Lord and His ways, who will come to Jesus and be saved.
A CLEANSING IS TAKING PLACE OVER THE NATION: Blizzards and snow a sign unto this nation.
- A Sign to the nation, blizzards & weather elements The season of blizzards that covered the United States and record snow. This was a sign as there was snow in 49 of 50 states at the same time, setting a weather record. The snow represented the sin problem in the nation that is in need of cleansing which is comparable to Miriam whose leprosy was white as snow. On the other hand, the snow speaks of cleansing of sin like when David said “wash me and I shall be whiter than snow” (Psalms 51:7) Even though David did wrong, he was cleansed and forgiven and still had to walk through the consequences of his actions. The snow also represents the manifestation of God’s glory coming to the Body of Christ in our nation the way Jesus’ raiment shined on the Mt. of Transfiguration (Mark 9:3). Some of the weather elements are the response of sin; some are the work of the evil one trying to destroy, like in Mark Chapter 4. This is where Jesus rebuked the storm and the devil behind it that was trying to stop the Gospel from going forth. Other elements are a manifestation of the glory showing the power of God like when God’s presence came on Mt Sinai. Not every weather occurrence is a sign, or prophetic message, or even a type of judgment.
- Record snowfall, blizzards and temperatures. It has been reported through many news sources that for the first time in recent history that 49 out of the 50 states all had the touch of snow at the same time. Some have said that even Hawaii had the touch of snow on the peaks making it all 50 states.
The snow is a sign of cleansing because of sin. King David cried out after he sinned, in Psalm 51, for God to wash him whiter than snow. There is much sin and evil in the United States and the righteous are crying out to God. This is why there is a cleansing; it is a sign of purity and sin. In the case of sin, Miriam had leprosy as white as snow. Her sin was what caused her to have leprosy as white as snow. Cleansing, Holiness, righteousness and the glory were all referenced to being white as snow.
Numbers 12:10 - And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.
Cleansing from sin:
Isaiah 1:18 -Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Psalm 51:7-Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Mark 9:3 - and his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.
Impurities come to the surface as the nation goes through a deep cleansing. We are seeing a lot of dark things coming to the surface and evil arising greater. Lawlessness, much sin, unrighteousness, compromise, and extreme darkness. This is what is being revealed and manifesting as God continues to cleanse this nation as He honors the prayers of the righteous. This is causing the filth and impurities to come to the surface. When this happens it is often hard to see the good and the pure, or even recognize the effects of cleansing.
With the different things we are seeing, it will seem like the nation has gone backwards, but this is part of the cleansing. This cleansing is dealing with sin to produce breakthrough. We must remember that cleansing precedes breakthrough like in the days of Jesus. He cleansed the temple and miracles quickly followed (John Chapter 2). God is cleansing His church and the nation.
THE EARTH AND THE ELEMENTS ARE RESPONDING TO GOD'S GLORY:
Prayers of the righteous: The cleansing of the nation with the elements of snow is in response to the prayers of the righteous. God still hears and answers the prayers of the righteous. There is much sin, lawlessness and darkness on the earth. The Lord is sending His light and His glory in the midst of the darkness (Isaiah 60).
The elements revealing the foundation and focus of the United States is off: Jesus is Lord over the earth and this nation that was dedicated to Him by our forefathers. We have become more dependent on a president, political party, and even the worship of false gods than the Lord Jesus. This is not how this nation was founded. Jesus taught, in Matthew Chapter 7, comparing foundations built on rock and sand to being wise and the other foolish. The one built on the rock was wise while the other built on sand was foolish. The elements He spoke of in the form of wind, rain and floods came to both foundations. The one built on the rock stood. The same is true when the USA returns to the God and foundation of this nation, in the Lord Jesus. The farther we allow the foundation of our nation to get away from the Rock of Christ, the more our foolishness will be revealed when the natural elements become unsettled.
Floods, rain, wind, snow, ice, fire, hail, storms and shakings are a sign: Not all weather or the reaction of the elements, such as earthquakes, floods and similar natural disasters represent God’s judgment, nor do they always carry a prophetic meaning. In Matthew 24, Jesus called these things signs, meaning they will simply be a regular occurrence in the last days and there is no hidden message beyond that. Jesus didn’t even call them judgments; He just called them signs that reveal we are in the last days. Some elements are just that, elements. Other times it can be the enemy using the elements to destroy and stop the furthering of the gospel or glory of God. Jesus rebuked the wind, the storm, in Mark 4. This storm wasn’t sent by His Father as Judgment, because Jesus wouldn’t rebuke His Father. The enemy was behind the storm because the place where the Lord was heading was across the sea where a man was possessed with a legion of demons and held the region in captivity, Mark Chapters 4 & 5. This was the reason for the violent storm that was responding to the glory on Jesus who was coming to preach the gospel and deliver this man.
Elements responding to the glory of God. Other times the elements are responding to the glory of God. Often when God came down to meet the people there was a display of the elements. For example, there were things like wind, hail, thunder, lighting, and earthquakes. Exodus 19:16-18 - 16And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled. 17And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount. 18And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.
Unusual weather and weather patterns will continue. We must be careful what weather occurrences we refer to as God’s judgments because the enemy often responds to the presence of God through weather elements as he did with Jesus in Mark Chapters 4 & 5 when the storm came. Yet, at the same time, God uses elements such as snow for example. We also see in Scripture when the wind brought back the locusts and at one point even brought the quails. The weather in terms of cold and heat is also a sign that God is changing the seasons.
I hear the sound of an abundance of rain. Watch where it rains. A sign that the famine over the land is breaking and diminishing. The Heavens are opening.
A SPIRITUAL WINDOW IS OPEN OVER AMERICA:
A window has been opened over America in the spirit. God is reaching forth toward our nation, president, government and economy. Through this window, God is giving this nation an opportunity to reach back to Him. This window speaks of opportunity, opening and potential blessing. The window is a window of opportunity and also God reaching toward the nation to see what we will choose. Jeremiah 18:7-10. It is similar to many of the windows opened in Scripture, specifically like the ark of Noah, Rahab, Eutychus, and Jezebel. The window will be opened to household salvations and God is also reaching toward our president. The success of God will be based on our prayers.
A window open in our nation: What will we choose? – Jeremiah 18:7-10 - At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; 8If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. 9And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; 10If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.
When God gives a prophecy of good things to a nation it is up to the nation to listen and obey. If the nation doesn’t obey what God says then the opposite of what God said will happen instead. God has to retract His blessing or judgment based on what we choose. The same is true when God makes a declaration of judgment upon the nation. If that nation has a change of heart and repents, then God will change His plan for judgment and bless the nation instead. It is our window of opportunity given by God to cry out for the United States and walk in righteousness. Remember, God still and always hears the prayers of the righteous.
A window open towards our president: God is reaching toward the president to give him the opportunity to reach back concerning Jesus Christ, Israel, and righteousness. God will make Himself known to the president and it will be the president’s job to reach back. It is similar to how Jesus reached toward Saul on the road to Damascus and Saul reached back and was converted. God reached toward Nebuchadnezzar even after he had excluded God in his ways and decisions. Nebuchadnezzar was reached by God in a dream which brought change. We must pray for our leaders as the Scripture says so they will experience God as He reaches for them. We need to pray they will reach back. If we don’t pray we will experience many changes that will not be good for the future of this nation.
A window was opened in Noah’s day: Many are looking at just the evil and darkness that is happening in the earth. We are told, according to Isaiah 60, that light and darkness would exist at the same time just like with Egypt and Goshen. While it was dark in Egypt there was light in Goshen. The first thing sent out after the flood of Noah was a raven (considered a dirty bird or scavenger). Usually, scavengers look for dead flesh. While perhaps Noah sent the raven for different reasons, the nature of that type of bird was to scavenge for meat. The raven didn’t find any because the earth was cleansed. The same is true today as many are looking only at the evil rather than seeing a cleansing taking place. The next thing that was sent out of the window of the ark was the dove which speaks of the Spirit. It may be dark and evil but the dove is coming to our nation as God is cleansing it.
A scarlet thread in the window: A window of opportunity in this new decade of 2010. God is reaching toward whole households to be saved. Joshua 2:18- Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by: and thou shalt bring thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all thy father's household, home unto thee. We will see many salvations, especially families and households like with Rahab and her family, Joshua 6:25 And Joshua saved Rahab the harlot alive, and her father's household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel even unto this day; because she hid the messengers, which Joshua sent to spy out Jericho. Now is the time to tell our families about Jesus and watch the harvest that will come!
Jezebel was overthrown through a window: This spirit of Jezebel has tried to silence the voice of God’s prophets and people. We can see the influence of this same spirit today that was upon Jezebel who worshipped the false god, Baal. A Baal spirit has sought to bring this nation into captivity. We can identify this demon spirit by such things as false worship and the lie that all gods are the same. There are other lies that say there are many roads to God. Then we have people cutting themselves through piercing and marking the body, and abortion and sexual immorality which are all part of the manifestations of what was happening in the days of Jezebel and Baal worship. Similar to today, this line of thinking believes you can worship “God” and still participate in some of these behaviors.
A window of Eutychus, Acts 20: We must wake up and pray during this time that the prophetic window is open. Eutychus fell asleep in a third story window while the Apostle Paul was preaching. This speaks of the spiritual state of many in the church who are asleep in our place of responsibility. The third story window is a prophetic symbolism of our spiritual seat in heavenly places. A window is open and we must pray!
WINDS OF CHANGE - LEGISLATION WILL CHANGE:
God is sending a supernatural wind that will blow throughout this nation and through the White House and Congress shuffling the papers. The Holy Spirit is coming as a rushing mighty wind as He did on the day of Pentecost. Just as that was a pivotal event this wind will mark many pivotal events in this nation.
A Supernatural Wind is going to Blow in Our Nation. The wind is going to blow over certain legislation and overturn some even though they will be signed into law. There is coming another major change in the Supreme Court. Over the next 12-24 months legislation will be signed that looks like we are going backwards, but God is going to make a public display overturning and triumphing over certain legislations that will be signed. God will bring an open display of triumph over many of the new legislations and some of the old ones that have been dishonorable in God’s sight.
GOD'S HEALTHCARE AND THE SWINE FLU:
Healthcare will be a major issue and discussion. God’s healthcare will ultimately reveal to be the best, as God comes to show mercy to the just and unjust concerning healing. He will protect His people from sickness and disease as He has promised (Exodus 15:26, 23:25). There will also be a significant increase in the healing power of God with notable, signs, wonders and miracles as a result. Man may choose healthcare but God wants to reveal He also cares for our health as well.
Many new discoveries shall be unfolded by the Spirit of God: He will reveal many things in the areas of medical science. Knowledge will increase as God shows His mercy and distaste for sickness and disease. God will show forth a mystery as He did in the beginning days of creation. Such things as light, water, breath (air, oxygen) and things in the soil of the earth will lead to further medical breakthroughs and science including energy and technology. All of these types of things were part of the beginning days of creation where God spoke “let there be light.” The Spirit hovered over the waters and God breathed His breath into man that He made from the soil of the earth. These things of light, water, breath (air, oxygen), and the things in the earth will once again aid in creating and bringing medical breakthroughs and technology.
Healing, Discoveries – Light: Let There Be Light! Light used in healing of the body:Very soon upon this earth, for even as in the days of creation when the utterance was spoken “let there be light” and there was, so it is in this season and this season of time that I will once again visit this earth through My light.
The swine flu: It will be thrown from the coasts of this nation. This flu is a sign of uncleanness as swine in Scripture in the days of Israel were considered to be unclean. It reveals this nation and the earth are sick with sickness and disease and are unclean. God is dealing with the nations concerning sin and the spirits of darkness who promote such. The fear of the swine flu will outweigh the manifestation of it. It is a call to repentance, righteousness and pure living before the Lord that will keep this swine flu from taking root in this nation.
THE YEAR OF ANSWERED PRAYER:
1 Samuel 1:12 - And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the LORD
The Lord has come to bring the desires of our hearts and answers to prayers to pass like He did with Hannah in the Bible. He has not been pleased with the spiritual Peninnah’s, like in 1 Samuel 1, who mocks the spiritual Hannah’s who seem to have nothing while they boast of what they have. God will bring forth what we are willing to dedicate to Him. If we call upon the Lord He will answer! (Jeremiah 33:3) This is the season to thank God for the things we have asked of Him and pray much because this is a season of answered prayer.
The year of breakthrough, manifestation and results: It is because it is a year of answered prayer that we will see breakthroughs and results. Some key words or phrases to be considered as we see this come to pass are: 1) It came to pass, and 2) There came suddenly.
A CHANGE OF LEADERSHIP IN THE EARTH AND IN THE CHURCH:
It is a new season of miracles and leadership. Oral Robert’s home going in December of 2009 marks an end of an era and a beginning of a new season for the church. What he stood for in miracles that took place in previous generations is now going to be revisited in this generation under new leadership.
HOSANNA THE LORD HAS COME TO SAVE US:
The Lord has not forsaken this nation. He is reaching toward us and waiting to see our response to Him.
Many salvations shall come, even to those in Hollywood.
Salvations and conversions that will shock the world. A leader of a nation and leaders of nations that will turn to the Lord, will shock many.
FIVE NATIONS TO "WATCH & PRAY OVER: Israel, United States, Russia, China, and Iran are five nations that will be the focus of much news worthy events and attention.
Israel: They will be pushed to sign things and make changes and at the last minute will push away from the table of negotiation and appear to stand alone. Israel will make a decision that will cause them to stand alone while other nations turn their backs. The president and the United States must stand with Israel as relationships between both nations shall become greatly fragile. The United States will voice its concern and disagreement of Israel’s decisions and the handling of Iran causing great tension between Russia, China, Israel, and the United States, to name a few.
United States: The USA must be diligent to continue its relationship with Israel, and must watch Iran, Russia and China as tensions will greatly increase because of Israel and Iran. The current administration needs the prayers of God’s people to aid them in standing with Israel and not turning their backs on them and avoiding the political snare of a demonic agenda to create instability between many nations.
China: The dragon will spit fire as it threatens through words and boldly spews forth their agreement and disagreement of the handling of Iran. Tension shall rise between them, Russia and the United States. Prayer is needed that China, through a series of decisions, will not back away from the United States’ relations.
Iran: God will continue to deal with Iran concerning Israel and the nations. An uprising of the youth of Iran will eventually lead to a regime change, causing Iran to be disrupted for a season from its evil intentions. Great spiritual battles are happening as God’s people must pray as the same evil spirit in scripture, called the Prince of Persia, is once again raising its head seeking to bring the nations into perplexity.
