The Year 2009 Will Be Known As “The Year Of Sight”.
“Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7
(I was shown these words written down in a dream)
God is going to open the eyes of His people to depths and degrees that we have never known. He is going to show us realms that we have never seen before. He is going to show us things in His word, and in the spirit that we have never seen before. God is going to show us things to come! (John 16:13) This year will be likened to the story of the man that was born blind, and Jesus gave sight to in John chapter nine (9). (Read and study John chapter nine, it is full of incredible prophetic insights for 2009)
Just as Jesus “anointed” the eyes of the blind man, and gave him sight, He is going to anoint our eyes with eye salve, and we will see like we have never seen before! (see Revelation 3:18)
After Jesus anointed the man’s eyes, He told him to go and wash in the pool of Siloam. We must repent and “wash” all of our sins away. As we do this our eyes will be open and we will see what has been blinding us and hindering us from fulfilling God’s purpose in our lives.
I am going to open the eyes of My people this year to see what they have never seen before, says the Lord. My people are going to see how they have been deceived by the evil one in the past. As I open the eyes of My people, the plans and ploys of the devil will be exposed! As My people see where and how the enemy has gained entrance into their lives, they will begin to close those doors that they have opened for him. My people have been deceived, because they have not seen the works of darkness and the sly subtle ways the enemy has deceived them. I am going to open the eyes of My people to such a degree, that they will see every plan, plot and ploy of the evil one set up against them. The more My people see, the less they will be deceived.My people are going to see “the great deception” that has occurred in the earth. As My people see, they will begin to rise up against the darkness and the deception that has gripped the world, saith the Lord.
2009 is going to really be a “Year of the Holy Spirit”.
This is going to be an amazing year of Illumination, Revelation, and Manifestation.
God has shown me that there will be “fine wine in 2009”.
Like Jesus saved the “best wine for last” at the wedding in Cana of Galilee, He has saved His “best wine” for such a time as this! He has shown me that He is really going to use His people that have been tested and proven and have been found faithful. Just like “fine wine” is the “aged wine” that has passed the test of time, so are the people of God that have done the same. Many of these people of God have been in the “wine cellar” of obscurity, aging to perfection until the proper time when God can bring them out and pour them out and serve them to the world and His people. Now is the time for these people to come forth, and for their gifts to be poured out. Now is the time for what is “in them” to be poured out “of them” and shared with the church and the world. These saints of God will pour out tremendous revelation from the word of God, amazing prophetic insights, and intense prophetic accuracy. They will also display incredible “power from on high”. We will see these people come forth and be elevated in 2009! God is going to use these people mightily in miraculous signs, wonders, and miracles. Their amazing prophetic accuracy will lead to greater deliverance and healing of God’s people, and a harvest of souls in the earth.
Now is the time for my “seasoned ones” to come forth saith the Lord. Now is the time for My “fine wine” to be poured out. Just as the Apostle Paul said that he was ready to be poured out as a drink offering, it is time for the pouring out and the pouring forth of My Spirit through these tested and proven vessels. I am going to bring out of My store house, and out of My wine cellar, the finest of wheat and the choicest of wine. It is time for My people to taste of what I have saved for this time. Those who have remained faithful to Me and to My purposes will be the first to partake of what I have prepared for My people, says the Lord. Then it will spread as a “river of wine’ to the rest of My people and to the whole wide world. Many of My chosen ones have wondered when they would be used mightily by me. Many have wondered why they were not being promoted or advanced. This is the reason, and now is the time, says the Lord. I call My “fine wine” forth now! “Come forth and flow, and fulfill My plans and purposes in the earth, says the Lord.
2009 is likened to Daniel chapter nine (9).
Verse one declares “In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes, which was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans;
As Daniel chapter nine and verse one declares the first year of Darius as king of the Chaldeans, we are entering in America, into the first year of Barak Obama as president of the United States of America. Daniel chapter nine reveals Daniel’s prayer of repentance and intercession to the God of all mercies. This year we too as the people of God must do the same! We must cry out to God in repentance and intercession. God will hear, and heal our land! (2 Chronicles 7:14) (Read and study Daniel chapter nine, this is critical for the times in which we are living and specifically for the year 2009 and beyond…)
As Daniel My servant saw from My word, the revelation of what was soon to come to pass, he began to cry out to Me in prayer and supplication. He began to cry out to me in repentance for the sins that his people and his leaders had committed. As your eyes are opened this year, it is imperative for you to begin to do the same. I will move on the behalf of the prayers and the repentance of My people, says the Lord. I am calling you back to me. Just as I caused Pharaoh’s daughter to draw Moses out of the river, I am “drawing” you back to Me, says the Lord. My people have gone astray, running after their own ways and the satisfying of their fleshly desires. I am “drawing you out”, and back to me. My people will see the error of their ways, and their selfishness and return to Me this year, says the Lord. Once again my people will see that I alone am God. They will come to the realization that the government is upon My shoulder and not the shoulders of men. They will see that I am their source and provider, not the economies of the world. They will see that it is vanity to place their trust in that which can so easily crumble to the ground. As I placed My people in Goshen and provided the best for them in famine, I will do the same for My people this year, and the years to come. My people will see and return to Me this year, says the Lord. Do not fear the things that are coming upon the earth. Know that I am God and beside Me there is no other. Take heart and be of good courage, as I was with Moses, so will I be with thee! I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, says the Lord.
In 2009 we will see a greater separation between the sheep and the goats. We will see a greater separation between those who “say” they are Christians, and those who truly “are” Christians. The dark are going to get darker and the light are going to get brighter. 2009 will be a year of separation, sanctification, and consecration. God’s people are going to have their eyes open to God’s place in the church and in the world. We will see that it is all about God and His Kingdom, not all about us and our kingdoms. God is going to move upon many people to open “power houses” this year. These will be homes and facilities that allow God to move in power and demonstration. Many churches are not allowing God to move by His Spirit, so God is going to begin to “draw” his people to “power houses” where He can move and minister to His people by His Spirit. If man gets in God’s way, God makes a way to minister to His people!
The words of Jesus concerning knowing people by their fruit will be pertinent and evident this year and in the years to come. Remember the words of the Lord Jesus not to let any man deceive you. (Matthew 24:4) “To deceive” means to blind or to “pull the wool over ones eyes.” This is the year of sight! This is the year that we begin to see like we have never seen! This is the year, and now is the time! God is calling us as His people to “arise and shine in 2009!”
