The number 17 means VICTORY.....In 2016 we saw the Lord release Revelation; Restoration; and Redemption. That has been a continued work of the Holy Spirit to prepare the Body of Christ to walk in what He has for them in this New Year. This will be a year of Victory for the Church of Jesus Christ as we go forth in the Power of His Might to see the captives set free.
"Much preparation has been done behind the scenes that has not been visible to the naked eye. My Apostles have been in that secret place of hearing and learning to obey the leading of My Spirit as I have caused many of them to just sit and wait in My presence with seemingly, no results.
My Prophets have been in a place of growing in the strength and power of who I am in them and who they are in Me. It will not be about being popular or even accepted by the majority, but will come down to that place of total obedience to My Voice and the leading of My Spirit. The Prophetic voice of My Sons will be so in tune with My Spirit that the multitudes will hear and turn to Me as they see the Words of My Voice go forth with a distinct sound that will change the world.
The Evangelists anointing will be released on the multitudes as the desire for Kingdom revelation is stirred in their hearts. The outpouring from the days of old will seem a small thing compared to the Glory that will be released in this New Year of Victory. What has begun with the Youth and in the Prisons in the last several years, has prepared the way for this Glory to be released. There will be no fear of man to those that have experienced that new life and they will boldly declare the Love of the Father to all who will hear. Many shall, for the first time, taste and see that the Lord is good and His mercy is from everlasting to everlasting.
My Pastors have been in a grooming process for this day to be released in their ministry. What has,in times past, been a vocation for many, will now have the call released in their hearts to become Shepherds over My sheep. My "Church" will become what I intended for it to be. My House shall be a House of Prayer and Praise and a place where the healings can come forth because the soil has been prepared and the seed has been planted. The Spirit of Jezebel will be recognized and dealt with immediately and the Victories will be great in My Body in this New Year.
There will be a great outpouring of the Teacher's Anointing released in My Church this year. In times past, the Teacher's Anointing came in great power only to be usurped with the thoughts and doctrines of man. This anointing will be protected by the combined efforts of My Body working together to see total Victory in every area of their walk. The children, the youth, the prisoners and the lost shall be taught the power of My Word and shall see the overcoming power that has been there for them all along. There will a release of expectation that will burn in the hearts of the children and they will walk in a realm of Upper Room experience that has not been seen since the Day of Pentecost. The very young shall even teach the very old.
The five-fold offices that have been set in the Church have been called the "Hand of God" working in the Earth. But, there is about to be a recognition of the power that works in My Body that reveals the "Heart of the Father" and that is the Intercessors. Many are in the five-fold group and are walking in a place of divine revelation in their calling. But, the Anointing to be a watchman on the wall will become a greater call in this New Year. There will be a release of the power of Prayer that can stir up Heaven and shake Hell. With this new revelation will come the anointing of the Sons of Issachar. They will not only hear the Voice of the Father, but will know the Times and Seasons of God. This anointing will increase with the intimate time spent with Me. I will call to you and you will hear and obey My voice and come into that secret place with Me. I have prepared the way with the experiences of your yesterdays coming together with your present day experience to create the destiny I have already prepared for your tomorrows.
There shall be Victories in every realm of life for My called out and anointed ones. Victory in Government; Victory in Families; Victory in Finances; Victory in Health; Victory in Ministries and Victory in My Church"
1 Chronicles 29:11 says this; "Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory,and the majesty, for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord and thou art exalted as head above all."
In Romans 8:35 the Apostle Paul asks a simple question which is "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?"
He then extends his question by asking if the following seven things could separate us;
Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
He then tells us ten things in verses 38 & 39 which CANNOT get between us and our God!
"For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
THAT'S 17 which represents a Christian's perfect and eternal standing with God through Christ.
In verse 37 it tells us this; "Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us."
Now THAT'S VICTORY!
