On 8.27.2016 Holy Spirit began speaking to me about the new Biblical year Ayin Zayin 5777. The scripture correlating to this new year, which begins October 2016, is Deuteronomy 32:22.
"For a fire is kindled in My anger, and burns to the lowest part of Sheol, and consumes the earth with its yield, and sets on fire the foundations of mountains." ~ NASB
When He gave this to me, I was just reading and not really prepared to take notes or receive revelation so I asked Him to stop. I admittedly was also a little startled because He'd never spoken revelation of that type to me before. In years past, I've waited to hear from established prophets what each new year was about. This year I was blessed to have been chosen to receive in advance. Pretty cool.
So, I asked real quickly what that meant, and He said in this new year He'll make a distinction between those who are with Him and those who are not. Now I've only shared this with my inner circle before today because it seemed a little harsh, and I'm always getting those kinda words. For example, last week in dreams The Lord spoke up and said, "I have messages for the churches," and then He started saying things like:
So, today, September 12, 2016, I went to check my church's website and the advertisement for HOTY 5777 reads at the bottom, "The Sword of The Lord Moving Across the Earth." I was very excited to see that confirmation that what I heard was accurate. Our apostle even called this upcoming year, "The Year of The Lord's Killing Sword."
The number 7 in Hebrew is a picture of a vav with a crown on top and it speaks of bringing The Word with power and authority as a king-priest. Back in January 2013 when I'd just regained custody of Zayne and we were starting to homeschool, we prayed for several days and asked God to show us through visions what His destiny was. Z was told to study his name. So when we studied it out God began to unfold His will for my son's life and future.
He's a prophet called to bring The Word of God with authority and power and because we know what God's desire is for him, that set the framework for his education. He's being trained as a prophet of God first and in traditional, mainstream education second. We both received visions of him praying over and speaking in front of groups, microphone in hand, with great wisdom.
This is Z's year and I'm excited about all of the new things God will break open for him as the days progress.
I pray you know what God has ordained for you since before time began. And if you're a parent, I pray you consult God for your children's destinies and receive (believe and agree with) them, as well. Take care.
