This week we enter into the year 5778. So, Happy Rosh Hashanah and may the Lord usher you into this new season with JOY!
Earlier this week, the Lord put these scriptures on my heart: Matthew 16:19 “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Revelation 1:17-18 “…Do not be afraid, I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold I am alive forevermore. Amen. I have the keys of Hades and of Death.”
Revelation 4:1 “After these things I looked and behold a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, ‘Come up here and I will show you things which must take place after this’.”
5778 is the year of the open door! I heard the Spirit say that He has given us keys to bind, loose, open and close and this is a time to exercise the authority that the Lord has given to us. We have an open invitation to enter into the open door of heaven and be seated with Him in heavenly places. This is a year that you can choose whether to enter into your promised land or wander for another 10 years. LET’S ENTER IN!
On August 13th the Lord gave me a prophecy that said, “Many of you are standing at a crossroad…you have been standing and standing and believing and believing; but NOW is the time to get moving with the word you have been standing on! There is a window of opportunity that you must seize in this season. So, watch as I open doors before you and know this, PRAISE IS YOUR WEAPON! Praise your way through and I will remove the things that have been in your way. This is no longer a time to simply stand but to take action. Do not hesitate any longer between two opinions. Let the hesitancy go and move forward keeping your eye on the ark of My presence. There is a shift now as to how you will watch Me move.”
I immediately thought of the crossing of the Jordon with Joshua. No longer would they be led by a cloud but by the ark of God. No longer would they be fed manna from heaven but they would eat of the fruit of the promise land. YOU WILL RECEIVE DIRECTION AND PROVISION IN SOME NEW AND UNEXPECTED WAYS. I, then,heard the Lord say “THERE IS A CHANGE!” He said this through me 8 times! Of course, as I was speaking it, I couldn’t count the times I was saying it. I think it was the Lord’s way of emphasizing the changes that are coming in the year 5778– new doors and new beginnings for a new year.
CHANGES IN THIS NEWSLETTER:
Instead of emailing you once a month, we will only be sending a newsletter from time to time as the Lord directs. We know your inbox is full of mail just as ours is and we only want to send this to you when we have a word from the Lord for you or important information.
CHANGES IN FGSOR:
We started our school semester with Rabbi Jack Zimmerman and it has been enlightening as he has shared with us about having a Biblical worldview. Some of you may want to sign up to take the school for credit or for audit. If you are attending the live classes, you will get personal time with the instructor following each class. This is an added bonus for our students. We are recording the discussion time for those of you taking the courses online too. Some of the best insights come during this personal time of discipleship.
In addition once you have received your AA degree from FGSOR, you will be qualified to be part of the new School of the Prophets classes taught by me in 2018. I am really stirred to see God’s people arise to the next level. More information will follow.
CHANGES IN ME:
I have been enjoying a special time of visitation from the Lord…this means a time of auditing of my life. Over the last few months, I have heard various messages from some amazing ministers: Pastor John Kilpatrick, Apostle Chuck Pierce, Pastor Bob Mazeroski, Pastor Dustin Hedrick, Pastor Sergio Scataglini, Pastor Garry Shaeffer, Rabbi Jack Zimmerman, Pastor Tim and Kari Thompson and Apostle Ed Silvoso. I am sure I have left some out! This has been a time of hearing, receiving, sifting, shaking, and preparing. Each of these ministers have impacted me and pushed me toward seeking Him more about my life and message. Most of all, I have been pressed into re-visiting the call and mandate of my life. I am rewriting my book,” Breakthrough Anointing” and retitling it, “It’s Time for Change!” During this rewriting time, I recognize how the Lord has brought me through into this new season with fresh insight and a new determination to stay true to who He has called me to be. The bottom line of my life is to stir hunger in the hearts of God’s people for His presence. Without His presence, life loses meaning! My verse for this time of my life is Psalm 92::10 “But You have exalted my horn like the wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil!”
There are many things I could be doing, but only ONE THING do I seek! (Psalm 27:4) Moses declared that it is by His going with us that we are distinguished or marked from all other peoples. My desire is to live aware of His presence and respond to His desire daily. The glory of God will be the light that draws in the final harvest! I really believe it!
Receive a fresh anointing and fresh oil from the Holy Spirit! Let Him refocus you and bring you back to who He called you to be. There are many voices, opinions, strategies and plans; but there is only one YOU! Be true to who He called and anointed you to be.
We love to hear from you and to know what the Lord is doing in and through you. May 5778 be a year of open doors for you and your family…and may you enter in to your promised land with JOY!
For His Glory, always,
Jody and LaNora
