I was cleaning up my email and discovered this prophetic word submitted to the Elijah List in January by Patricia King. There are some great points and encouraging words contained!
"17 Prophetic Words for 2017"
Patricia King, Maricopa, AZ
1. Year of Significant Breakthrough
Breakthrough will come in areas where the enemy has assaulted Believers, such as health, finance, relationships, and adverse circumstances. Many of these breakthroughs will come suddenly. Breakthroughs will come on regional and national levels, also in response to the prayers of the saints. BREAKTHROUGH will be a significant word in 2017. The more it is proclaimed, the more breakthrough will come.
There will also be the breaking forth or "birthings" of new things in Believers' lives and in the world.
Angels called Breakthrough are being dispatched. God is sending angels called BREAKTHROUGH to assist Believers as they break forth into new realms of Kingdom authority, encounter, and experience. As a result, many Believers will experience sudden deliverances from areas of warfare and bondage and will encounter liberty and freedom in the spirit. These angels represent the BREAKER and they execute His assigned works of breakthrough on behalf of Believers.
When the Philistines heard that they had anointed David king over Israel, all the Philistines went up to seek out David; and when David heard of it, he went down to the strong- hold. Now the Philistines came and spread themselves out in the valley of Rephaim. Then David inquired of the Lord, saying, "Shall I go up against the Philistines? Will You give them into my hand?" And the Lord said to David, "Go up, for I will certainly give the Philistines into your hand."
So David came to Baal-perazim and defeated them there; and he said, "The Lord has broken through my enemies before me like the breakthrough of waters." Therefore he named that place Baal-perazim. They abandoned their idols there, so David and his men carried them away. 2 Samuel 5:17-21 (NASB)
The breaker goes up before them; they break out, pass through the gate and go out by it. So their king goes on before them, And the Lord at their head. Micah 2:13 (NASB)
The number 17 in Scripture symbolizes "overcoming the enemy" and "complete victory."
God overcame the sins of rebellious humans when He began to flood the earth and rested on the 17th day of the Hebrew month. Noah's ark and its eight passengers rested on the mountains of Ararat on the 17th day of the seventh month of the religious year (Tishrei), right in the middle of God's Holy period known as the Feast of Tabernacles.
The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) is in the seventh month (Tishri) and on the tenth day of the Hebraic calendar. This day calls for the turning from our sins through repentance that brings us to victory. It is the time for the breakthrough to victory.
Many things that have been lost will be restored in 2017. Faith, hope, joy, relationships, finances, positions, lands, inheritances, reputation, health, and strength will be restored by the Spirit of grace. There will be great joy and testimony as a result of the Lord's work of restoration. RESTORE, RESTORE, RESTORE!
O God of hosts, restore us and cause Your face to shine upon us, and we will be saved. Psalm 80:7 (NASB)
Restore our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the South. Psalm 126:4 (NASB)
"The voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the voice of those who say, 'Give thanks to the Lord of hosts, for the Lord is good, for His lovingkindness is everlasting;' and of those who bring a thank offering into the house of the Lord. For I will restore the fortunes of the land as they were at first," says the Lord. Jeremiah 33:11 (NASB)
3. Focus on Love and Kindness
"Do not be mean in '17!" A standard of love and kindness will be raised up against the hatred, cruelty, and violence demonstrated in 2016. A "Love War" will be waged.
Let love be your highest goal! 1 Corinthians 14:1a (NLT)
For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Galatians 5:14 (NASB)
4. Israel, America and Trump
President-elect Trump will restore America's relationship with Israel this year. Any nation that curses Israel will be cursed and any nation that blesses Israel shall be blessed. America was close to being severely cursed due to the previous administration's actions against Israel, but Trump will turn this around. As a result of this positional restoration as allies of Israel, America will receive blessing from the hand of the Lord. God has positioned Trump. Our God is a forgiving and loving God.
President Trump will need much prayer this year. The Church must arise and make Scriptural decrees for his protection, and pray for God's wisdom to fill him daily. America will have great breakthroughs and will be used to help other nations encounter breakthroughs, but the battle will be fierce on many fronts. Much prayer is needed.
"And I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and so you shall be a blessing;
And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed."Genesis 12:2-3
For thus says the Lord of hosts, "After glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye." Zechariah 2:8 (NASB) (Photo via Pixabay)
As I have stated before, I believe that Trump will be the most important President since Abraham Lincoln and that our nation will in the future have a "before Trump" and "an after Trump" historical perspective. I believe that the United States' great angel named Union has been ordered to step in as he has not been asked to step in since Lincoln's day. I also believe a great angel of Reformation that was from that day has also been released at this time and it is for the 2.0 version of Reformation.
Heaven is in a very interventionist mode with America at this time, and it is going to take some getting used to for many who don't understand America's assigned role among the nations. United States was formed and fashioned with a foundation of freedom and liberty as a gift to the nations. The nations of the world were hopelessly stuck in dead-end cycles of tyranny, war, and devastation. America was and still is the interruption into those cycles, and the call extends well beyond anything we have so far seen. God's commitment to seeing America through has not wavered despite our many weaknesses, and this will become increasingly evident to those who have eyes to see. America is also called to be the protector and guarantor of Israel, and it is a primary calling. Because of that call, military might is a must for America as a deterrent to foolishness among the nations.
What we will see for the next 8 years is reflected in the acronym of our new president's last name.
Transformation – this is what happens to people and to the macro narrative itself.
Reformation – this is what happens to the 7 Mountains of society.
Union – this is the great angel over us and his specific assignment.
Momentum – we will shift into full-scale destiny momentum.
Prosperity – transformation and reformation are both a root and a fruit of prosperity.
5. Increase in Miracles, Signs and Wonders
God's eye is particularly gazing upon the Middle East and parts of Asia such as India and Pakistan in 2017.
I see Egypt beginning to awaken through the visitation of signs, wonders, and miracles. Those who have held to a form of godliness and denied the power will come under conviction due to personal encounters with the Lord.
Israel will continue to experience tensions but it will escalate in revelation of truth and will experience signs and wonders at the hand of God. The Lord will call many God-fearing intercessory Believers to move to Israel in 2017.
The Lord says, "Watch what I will do in Syria." Many individuals trapped in the deception of ISIS will wake up and see the truth. Many of them will be visited by the power of the Lord and as a result will risk their lives for His justice, righteousness, and glory.
God also testifying with them, both by signs and wonders and by various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit according to His own will. Hebrews 2:4 (NASB)
6. Increased Anointing Activated in Believers to Break Strongholds and to Produce Good Works
And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing. Isaiah 10:27 (KJV)
"You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him." Acts 10:38 (NASB)
7. Revival, Revolution, and Reformation
Many who have felt empty, dry, and unfruitful will experience personal renewal and refreshment in the spirit when they cry out to the Lord for revival.
Apostolic revival centers will expand in the nations and become more established in 2017.
Anything that causes you to revolt is an invitation for a revolution. This year, revolutions on many fronts will demand attention and justice. These revolutions will result in reformations (re-formings).
Behold, I long for Your precepts; revive me through Your righteousness...Revive me according to Your lovingkindness, so that I may keep the testimony of Your mouth. Psalm 119:40,88 (NASB)
For thus says the high and exalted One who lives forever, whose name is Holy, "I dwell on a high and holy place, and also with the contrite and lowly of spirit in order to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite."Isaiah 57:15 (NASB)
We are hearing the words, New Wine, New Wine!
A convergence of all the past moves of God coming together with the manifestations of Pentecostal Fire, the Healing and Deliverance Crusades. The Latter Rain Glory being poured out with new realms of glory, the Evangelicals' Burden of the Lost, and the Jesus People Movement's love for the lost, the gifts of the Holy Spirit from the Charismatic Movement, the Third Wave Theological Credibility, the Revelation of the Prophetic Movement, and the Relational Networking of the Apostolic Reformation that includes an understanding of reforming and transforming society in each mountain (or sphere) is great Convergence of the Ages is coming with a historic Fourth Wave of the Holy Spirit and a reformation that will lead to the Great Transformation of nations.
The wind of the Holy Spirit is going to blow with new renewal movements arising in the youth upon centuries-old churches. The power of the Holy Spirit will be poured out in a new, fresh way, manifesting through the young and old. The miracles that have seemed only to happen infrequently are going to be dramatic.
Many "working of miracles" that are creative in nature will be seen in hundreds of churches across the world. Centuries old churches that have prayed for a renewed move of the Holy Spirit will see their prayers answered. It is the time for a new Pentecost! Some that criticize those who are longing for renewal will find they are put out of leadership in their churches and denominations. Both the young and the old will see the power of the Holy Spirit fall upon them.
This again will result in many, many new missionaries being sent out across the face of the earth that are willing to go to the most difficult and hard-to-reach areas. Central Asia will be majorly impacted by this mission's movement.God is calling a new generation who will go out and evangelize the world! The numbers of those going to preach will increase in large proportion compared to the generation before them.
Stadium gatherings will spring up in the nations and many souls will be saved. A new breed of evangelists preaching with faith, conviction, love, and power will emerge, leading masses to Christ.
Churches will reach out in their communities, and individuals who are searching for answers will discover truth.
Call forth laborers to the fields that are white with harvest and pray for churches to be ready to disciple new Believers.
And He was saying to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. Luke 10:2 (NASB)
9. New Inventions and Solutions
2017 will be a year of discovery. Breakthroughs in knowledge, wisdom, and understanding will bring forth cures, inventions, and technical solutions and advancement.
I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. Proverbs 8:12 (KJV)
10. Social Media and the Internet
The use of social media will explode in 2017. Many will grow spiritually through input they receive through social media channels, and many will find Christ. God will orchestrate many things to go viral through social media in order to get His Word out. There will also be exposures of hidden sins and corruption that will be made known to the public through social media.
The cyber-world will be stirred with great battles in 2017. Much prayer will be needed to protect the masses from harmful invasion, theft, exploitation, and exposure. God will raise up many righteous ones who will be on the cutting edge of technology to thwart cyber-hacking.
"But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase." Daniel 12:4 (NASB)
"For nothing is hidden, except to be revealed; nor has anything been secret, but that it would come to light." Mark 4:22 (NASB)
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." John 10:10 (NASB)
11. Women Arising
Women will rise into positions of influence in 2017. Virtuous Christian women will need to take their place and release their voice to raise a righteous and moral standard. A counter-mandate filled with liberal persuasions will attempt to dominate, destroy, and challenge righteous women's morals and values in the Lord. Much prayer will be needed to undergird young women in the education system who will be assaulted and bullied for their values. Overcomers and champions will emerge in this midst.
Many women appointed by God will rise to the frontlines of the seven realms of influence in society. Women entrepreneurs will arise in particular.
The Lord gives the command; the women who proclaim the good tidings are a great host: Psalm 68:11 (NASB)
12. Apostolic Intercession and Warfare
There will be tensions in the earth and in the Church caused by high-level demonic assault and intentions. The Lord of Hosts, the King of Glory, will manifest in the midst of these tensions and His Spirit will train Believers to war on new levels. I hear a battle cry! I believe that many will be called to pray much in tongues in this season. The gift of tongues will be a major weapon. (As pre-mentioned) Donald Trump and his administration will need to be covered in serious prayer.
Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O gates, and lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in! Psalm 24:8-9 (NASB)
13. Children Will Have Heavenly Visitations and Receive Divine Insights
There will be an emphasis on children in 2017 in many areas of the world. I saw a vision of masses of children being visited by God. They will naturally move in the supernatural and will have heavenly encounters. They will receive revelatory, prophetic insights and divine understanding.
Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, who dwells on Mount Zion. Isaiah 8:18 (NASB)
I see a river flowing from the throne. It is full of grace, healing, love, and power. It forms many tributaries and then the tributaries flow together into the ocean to bring life and healing. 2017 will bring streams together that never owed together in the past.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy dwelling places of the Most High. Psalm 46:4 (NASB)
"It will come about that every living creature which swarms in every place where the river goes, will live. And there will be very many fish, for these waters go there and the others become fresh; so everything will live where the river goes."Ezekiel 47:9 (NASB)
The Lord spoke to us that next year we would see a new John 17 movement begin where the prayer of Jesus will be answered. Many streams will run together until we see a river of revival flow across the earth. There will be major reconciliations between denominations, nations, and peoples.
God will anoint peacemakers in this season who are especially empowered by God to be a voice for unity between factions and help heal the breaches.
This John 17 move will extend to families, as well as there is a "focus on the family" where longstanding breaches between siblings, and between parents and their children, are healed. God is calling for families to pray together and "light" the family altar. Strongholds in family systems are going to be broken in powerful and supernatural ways. This will even extend to strongholds of poverty, disease, alcoholism, and drug abuse.
The John 17 movements will align against injustice and religious strongholds as they decide together that they want a new move of the Holy Spirit.
We are hearing the words, New Wine, New Wine!
15. Enemies Will Form Alliances for the Greater Good
Those who were once resistant to each other will come together in friendly alliance to fight greater evil and injustice together.
When a man's ways are pleasing to the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. Proverbs 16:7 (NASB)
16. Kingdom Economy Will Manifest Miracle Levels of Provision
For those who obey the Word, increase of blessings will visit their lives. As Jesus taught His disciples in areas of miracle provision (i.e., the loaves and the fish multiplying) so also will the people of God experience supernatural increase.
And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.Philippians 4:19 (NASB)
17. Seniors Will Arise and Shake Off Restricting Mindsets in 2017
God is moving powerfully among seniors. A company of those who are 55+ years of age will shatter the lies concerning their generation. Donald Trump, who is the oldest man ever to become president of the USA, is a sign and first fruits of this great and influential company of seniors.
Many of those who are 55+ will arise and step into fulfillment of destiny and will boldly march forward to the frontlines of Kingdom service. They will be effective and powerful in Kingdom advancement. Many will pursue new interests and education. A new breed of seniors is arising who will defy the expectation of deterioration of body and soul in the latter years. They will testify that their latter years are truly more glorious and fruitful than the former. Many new materials, resources, and opportunities will be birthed for seniors in 2017.
Rosh Hashanah 2015 to Rosh Hashanah 2016 brought us the 70th year of Jubilee, and this unprecedented year of Jubilee brought us God's choice of Donald Trump as President of the United States and Leader of the Free World. Trump at age 70 became elected President of this nation during the Hebraic year 5777. On inauguration day he will be 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old. Because the Electoral College changed some votes it allowed Trump to end up with exactly 77 more electoral votes. 7 is the prime number of God and is why there are 7 spirits of God. Only if you are still out of tune spiritually (or motivated by an unnecessary fear) should this presidency still be a struggle for any of you. Outgoing president Barack Obama's legacy-tainting final acts against Israel are an immediate, major proof that the insertion of Trump as President was an urgent need for us and our nation. We will avoid many national catastrophes because of the proper honoring and care of Israel that our new president will see to.
"The latter glory of this house will be greater than the former," says the Lord of hosts, "and in this place I will give peace," declares the Lord of hosts. Haggai 2:9 (NASB) Patricia King
