Dear Partners and Friends,
From our Hearts to yours - HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Monya and I are so very grateful for your partnership, prayers and support - 2010 will definitely be a year to remember! God has saved, healed and showed up in miraculous ways to the thousands this past year beyond all we could have asked, thought or even imagined! To “HIM” alone we give all the “PRAISE and GLORY!”
So now as we embark upon a brand new year and season – the question many ask is: “What is in store for us in 2011?” My response to those who ask is - “Get Ready!”
The meaning of the number 11 is:
The number for paradigm shifts. Eleven is a transitional number that signifies when power changes hands because it falls between “Ten” – the number of divine injunction and government, and “Twelve” – the number of the rule of God’s covenanted ones, particularly His Apostles. 1 Kings 6:38; 2 Kings 9:29; Jeremiah 1:3 and 39:2-3. See also Matthew 19:28; Revelation 21:12-14. (The Prophet’s Dictionary – Paula A. Price, PH.D.)
I come before you today, to speak prophetically to you what God is saying for this new year of 2011.
*PLEASE UNDERSTAND - I'm speaking prophetically as the Spirit is leading. There will be parts of this word that will NOT pertain to each individually, but as you read this word - "YOU" will know what God is confirming to you by the prompting of the Holy Spirit.
This year is a transitional year which will bring forth the power of God, Kingdom Prosperity and a Shifting of the Guard!
God will now release to those He can trust - “The Goods” to fulfill the mandated assignments that He has spoken upon your lives. This is a year of the “Divine Nature” of God, His Favor and Miraculous Works being manifested through His “Faithful” servants! This is a year of recovery, restoration and many supernatural “Unique – Happenings” of the spirit of God around the world!
In this “New Year” you will find yourself transitioning spiritually upwardly, as you operate in New Paradigms (Dimensions) in Him, as well as, moving and shifting into new territories physically. As some of you have already moved to new physical locations in 2010, you will now “Set-Up Camp” and conquer your territory God has given to you! However, some of you have felt God speak to you in this past season, to move and you have held back giving excuses on why you COULD NOT. You have even waited for a sign or a wonder to happen first, before stepping out in obedience to Him. You must act in obedience now, or your disobedience will forfeit the blessings God has for you in this new season.
You must have your spiritual senses in “High Gear” now, as we move into this New Year! The flesh MUST stay behind in 2010 - It CAN NOT COME WITH YOU INTO 2011. This Year of 2011 is the year to soar! Leave the "Dead weight and Baggage" behind you! This is the hour and beginning season of change into a transitional moment of forward progression and advancement with God!
What this means is this:
If you continue to stay in the same place spiritually (and for some of you even in regards to where you live), you will miss what God wants to do through and around you. For some, you have literally felt as if everything has dried up. This has been God testing your faith and preparing you for a miracle! For others, he has caused things to dry up around you because you are NOT in the region you are to be in and you have confused your destination with Destiny! He is causing everything to dry up to get your attention! He is saying, “LEAVE THIS PLACE!”
The “Brook” is/was only a seasonal destination – not for “LONG TERM!” The Brook Cherith has dried up and its time NOW, to move to Zerephath! It is there you will find purpose, provision and miracles! (1 Kings 17)
Please hear me – Do not get the two confused! Many will remain in their destination (at the dried up brook) and miss their destiny because they were NOT spiritually in tune enough to hear, see and sense the Holy Spirit moving you to the next “Destination” that will take you to Destiny!
This is a very strategic season and “YOU MUST BE OBEDIENT!”
I speak under the prophetic anointing - Your life “MUST SHIFT” with what HE is DOING and wanting "YOU" to do. This will be uncomfortable for some, causing your flesh to be challenged!
Why? Because some of you, have lived in that area or territory all your life and built your home there. The flesh will speak to you and say, “But you have built your life here - You can’t move now! You have your friends and family here - You can’t up and move now! Everything you have worked so hard for is here - You can’t leave now!”
You will have thoughts of, "Why would God wait to do this now?"
1. For some this will be a "WAKE UP CALL" to shift with the Spirit of God and move out of the comfort Zone, into the supernatural.
2. For others, it will be confirmation of what you know God has been speaking to you to do.
3. For others, this will be a second chance to be obedient in what HE already told you to do and you were disobedient to do it.
Please hear what God is saying concerning this new season!
You must obey the Spirit of God to move into your “New Dimension!” Whether it be a physical location or a spiritual mindset! You can not remain in the place you have been spiritually or physically, and expect to go “Upward” into the dimensions God has prepared for you. This also includes removing yourself from some associations that can NOT go with you into this New Dimension!
For some, this “New Season” will be another test of your faith and spirit to move beyond your flesh senses and begin to hear and obey!
1. Pass the test and get promoted!
2. Fail the test and you will most definitely have to take it again!
For those that hear what the spirit of God is saying right now, you will understand exactly. Now is the moment to listen and hear God speak to you strategically in what He would have you to do. Be obedient now and PASS THE TEST!
2011 Is an exciting year of anticipating the promises of God manifesting right in front of our eyes! This will be a year of greatness and seeing the faithfulness of our God, but it is hinged on our steadfast faith and obedience to Him!
Our miracles we believe God for are “Hinged by Faith!” The key to receiving from the Lord evolves around this principle of obedience and giving! If you can grasp this and then act upon it, you will see the Hand of God move in your life in a way beyond anything you have ever seen before.
Every miracle in the word of God that took place scripturally was “Hinged” by the “Act of Faith!” To see the manifestation of the desired “Need” fulfilled, there has to be a “MOVEMENT or ACT of FAITH” for an individual to receive it! Please remember, God is NOT moved by your need, He is MOVED by YOUR FAITH! What moves you, MOVES GOD toward you!
What are you saying Brett? As we move now into the first month of the New Year, we must be prepared to sow a bountiful Gift to the Lord for what we believe Him for in 2011. We must “See” the harvest we want and then sow toward it!
Becoming a “Visionary”…
Like a Farmer, you now must become the “Visionary” for the harvest you want to receive in the New Year! I have seen in my own life and ministry as God has shifted everything around me as I have stepped out in FAITH to sow “BIG” believing God for a harvest! I know you will begin to experience “NO MORE LACK” as you prepare your “Seed of Faith” for your harvest in this New Year!
Before a farmer plants seed in the many hundreds of acres of land, he will “SEE” the harvest that he wants to produce first! The farmer will calculate how much seed he needs to sow, in order to reap what he “SEES” ahead of time! You must be a visionary and “SEE” what you want and then “SOW” to get it! The seed you plant today by faith, combined with obedience to God, prayer, fasting, and the manifesting power of the Holy Spirit, will produce your harvest in great abundance! This is a prophetic and strategic moment (Timing) for sowing!
*2 Cor 9:10 (NKJV)
10. Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness….
Did you see it? What this means is this: whenever we sow seed, God comes behind us and sows more seed. So when it is time for the harvest, we are not just harvesting what we have sown, but also what God has sown as well. He brings such multiplication and increase to our sowing, that before our seed can hit the ground, we are reaping a harvest.
The “Importance of Faith” when you Plant “Seed”…
As I stated above, the seed is the beginning of the harvest. A farmer looks at his acres of land and makes a determination for what kind of Harvest he'll produce. How you ask? Again, it is determined by the amount of seed he buys ahead of time, in order to have the manifestation of what he has envisioned the harvest to become.
In other words, it is the vision and mindset of the individual that makes a determination by faith for what he or she believes will actually take place! By planting the seed into the hand of God for the harvest needed, God sees your faith exercised and then comes behind it with more seed! WOW!! So when you get your harvest, you not only receive what you planted, but what God has come behind you and planted as well -According to your faith! Please look at the following scriptures:
*Heb 11:1-3 (NKJV)
1. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. 3. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
When you and I are hoping or believing for a desired need or harvest, we must do something that I like to call, "FAITHING" it. What this means is, “Faith” becomes an action word or verb. You must see those things that aren't manifested yet and "Faith" them. But in cooperation with Faith, there also must be action. In this case, we are sowing seed which in turn brings an “Action by Faith.”
*James 2:26 (KJV)
26. For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also…
*Heb 11:6 (NKJV)
6. But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
*II Corinthians 9:5-7(NKJV)
5. …So I thought it necessary to urge the brethren that they would go on ahead to you and arrange before hand your previously promised bountiful gift, that the same might be ready as a bountiful gift, and not affected by covetousness. 6. But this I say: “He that soweth sparingly shall also reap sparingly and he that soweth bountifully shall also reap bountifully. 7. So Let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.”
*Here is the KEY:
We must be prepared to give a bountiful gift to the giver (Jesus)! Never come before Him unprepared to give. The manner in which we give (sow) concerning our “Heart Condition” toward giving to Him, determines the blessings we receive!
We have been developed and matured by God in this last season of our lives! In order to receive the fullness of God’s promises to us, our Faith must be stretched. Because of the stretching we have went through in the process of our last season, we have been positioned now to contain the harvest God has promised us in this new season. Now, there is more room to receive where there wasn’t before! However, we must also understand that our mindset must shift and the old thought-patterns must be removed, so that the "New Wine" (Blessings spiritually and in the natural) can be released.
Please understand that the way you think, is a very important key to your blessings being released. Your present mindset of expectancy and faith, combined with the help of the Holy Spirit, will give you all that God said was yours!
Remember the old thought pattern (your old mindset) can hinder you from experiencing the abundance of God in your life! Don’t go backward in your faith and thinking process -Advance forward from this moment!
*Amos 9:13 (NKJV)
13. "Behold, the days are coming," says the LORD, "When the plowman shall overtake the reaper, And the treader of grapes him who sows seed; The mountains shall drip with sweet wine, And all the hills shall flow with it.
I believe that this could very well be the season we are walking in! The scripture suggests that as we sow, God is going to cause it to be accelerated and "Time" will be removed from the normal – "Seed, Time and Harvest" process. Any farmer understands this process. There is a time for sowing (Seed), then waiting for the seed to develop (Time), and then collecting it (Harvest).
But, God says in the days coming, His promised harvest will take place at the same time you sow. Could it be in this moment of time when souls and abundance will be reaped quicker than we can even speak the word, sow?
I believe that the season we are living in now could very well be what Amos 9:13 suggests and will bring such acceleration that seed time and harvest will be at the same time. Not only will you reap what you have sown, but God will also give seed to the sower and multiply their seed! Hallelujah!!
Remember your seed is the beginning, root and foundation of wealth, prosperity and health for you. You must act in faith and believe God in the "Act of Sowing". Remember Faith with out works is dead!
Some may ask – Why do seeds involve money?
Here is the reasoning behind it. The money you have has been produced by the “Best” that you have. It has taken your ability, your talent, thinking and labor to create it. You gave your best to create the money you possess. God sees this and wants your “Best” - So when seeds are mentioned, it is our “Best” that God wants and “Money” represents our “Best”. “Money” is our “Best” seed to God!
Today as you give this one time or monthly automatic donation (Seed) into the fertile soil of this ministry, declare over your seed the favor of God and the multiplication from the Kingdom, that God has promised to give to you according to His word!
I Declare over you now:
*Eph 3:20, 21 (NKJV)
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, To Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
