PROPHETIC WORDS FOR 2018
For those who are co-laboring with Christ Jesus, it is going to be a glorious and prosperous year. It will be like the original Day of Pentecost, "Suddenly they were endued with power" by the Holy Spirit. Isaiah 60:3 is also being activated as a commission to the Church as we enter the "Dispensation of the fullness of the times" (Eph. 1:10, Rev. 10:7). Now, delay shall be no longer, but all the mysteries and prophecies that the prophets have spoken shall be revealed and fulfilled.
In 2018, the Church will begin to "arise and shine" as they receive the new empowerment and start revealing and demonstrating the glory of the Lord. For the wicked of the world and the lukewarm in the Church—it will be a year of darkness and fearful anticipations. The true followers of Christ Jesus will know how to appropriate the new thing that God will begin in 2018. They will fulfill God's purpose in this appointed time. God is activating the time for the knowledge of the glory of the Lord to begin filling the earth as the waters cover the sea (Hab. 2:14; Nu. 14:21; Ez. 12:26-27; 1 Thess. 5:4-8).
Prophetic Significance of Certain Years that End with "7" and the Next Year "8"
• 7-8: "7" is the number signifying fullness, fulfillment and completion. God completed the creation in 6 days, rested on the 7th, and began a new ministry on the 8th. The 7 days completed His work of creating all things, including man. The 8th day started God's new ministry of working with mankind on earth.
• Jesus was resurrected on the 8th day of the week, (Saturday=7th; Sunday=8th; Jesus began the Church Age on 8th day.)
• 1517-1518: Martin Luther nailed his 95 Arguments against the Dark Age Church on the door of his church on Oct. 31, 1517, which completed the time of the Dark Age Church. 1518 started the age or time-period of the Restoration of the Church called the "Second Reformation".[[PASTING TABLES IS NOT SUPPORTED]]
• 2007-2008: The Saints Movement was birthed in 2007 and prepared the way of Heaven's decree for the beginning of "The Third and Final Church Reformation" in 2008.
• 1987-1988: Christian International had the first ever recorded in church history "Prophets Conference" in 1987 on a Wednesday night, after I had preached about the "great company of prophets" that God wanted to raise up in our day, and great intercession swept over the 700 saints present. It was the travailing labor pains for the birthing of the company of prophets. But it was the second prophets conference in 1988 that the Prophetic Movement was birthed. (Complete details are given in pages 88-100 in the book "Prophets and the Prophetic Movement".)
• 1947-1948: William Branham was launched as a prophet ministering with supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit in 1947. The following year, "The Latter Rain" movement was launched in 1948. Part of their revelation restoration teaching was that there are still Apostles and Prophets in the Church today. (Evangelical dispensationalists taught that they had been depleted from the Church.)
• 2007-2008: The Saints Movement in 2007 closed out the period of the Second Reformation and prepared the way for the Third Reformation to be launched in 2008. (Photo via Wikipedia)
• 1947-1948: Oral Roberts was launched in 1947 as an evangelist with the "laying on of hands" for healing. In 1948, T. L. Osborne was launched in evangelism with mass miracles. At that time, hundreds of evangelists arose with miracle ministries throughout the world. It became known as "Deliverance Evangelism." These two 1948 movements were two separate restoration streams which never merged in their day.

The year 2017 was a challenging year and many of us are wondering why we had to endure such difficult trials. The warfare seemed to be relentless but there is an old saying, "What didn't kill you will make you stronger". The Lord is showing me that He is raising up a prophetic remnant who are strong, courageous and determined to stand against any adversity that comes against them. Some of you are asking the Lord, "Why did You allow certain things to happen this past year?" Let me remind you that there was a mighty prophet of God who asked the same question...
Emerge – Mighty Men of Valor!
In the book of Judges, there was a man named Gideon who was fearful and weak in his own sight, but mighty in the eyes of God. The name Gideon means "Mighty warrior". Gideon was called to deliver Israel from the Midianites, but one day Gideon was hiding as they were attacking Israel. God had sent an angel to him saying, "The Lord is with you, mighty man of valor." Gideon replied with a question, "Pardon me, my lord," Gideon replied, "but if the LORD is with us, why has all this happened to us?" (Judges 6:13).
The Lord responded, "Surely I will be with you, and you shall defeat the Midianites as one man" (Judges 6:16). After this encounter with the angel, Gideon went and rescued Israel from the enemy with an army, which the Lord had reduced from thirty two thousand men to just three hundred men. The Lord also allowed Gideon to see into the enemy's camp.
In 2018 many prophetic voices are going to emerge. They will be so fine-tuned to the Holy Spirit because they spend time with Jesus and know His Word.
The Lord says: "Just as I did in days past, I will speak to you and lead you in unusual ways. I am raising up those who will prophesy with precision and accuracy. Their ears will be fine-tuned to hear My voice, and they will speak in harmony with My words. I will join them together with other voices as in a company of prophets.
"Don't covet the mantles of the prophets of old, because I am releasing a fresh anointing and new mantles in the days ahead. I am raising up those to begin to see beyond their natural sight and comprehend beyond their natural senses. They will be attuned to the symphonies of Heaven.
"Those who are tuned in to My voice will no longer be led astray by the voices of strangers. They will discern false teachings and false prophets, and they will recognize the genuine from the profane. I will give them keen discernment, and they will learn how to enter into My presence with ease," says the Lord.
Not One of His Words Fell to the Ground
There is another story in the Old Testament about a prophet (seer) named Samuel, whom the Bible says that as he grew, none of his words fell to the ground, meaning that every prophetic word that he spoke came to pass. He heard the audible voice of the Lord as He called him at a very young age. He did not recognize the Lord's voice at first (1 Samuel chapter 3), but then he answered and he became one of the greatest prophets in history.
"So Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground." (1 Samuel 3:19)
In the book of 1 Samuel Chapter 9, there is a story of a man named Saul who was also called to be a prophet (seer) with a unique gift. Saul's father, Kish, lost his donkeys and sent Saul and his servant to look for them. They couldn't find the donkeys, but the servant said that there was an honorable man in this city and all that he says surely comes to pass. The story goes on to say that as they were walking, they met up with the Prophet Samuel.
"And he said to him, 'Look now, there is in this city a man of God, and he is an honorable man; all that he says surely comes to pass.'" (1 Samuel 9:6)
God told Samuel the day before, that he was going to meet Saul, and God would tell him everything that is in his heart. When they met, Samuel anointed Saul to be a prophet, and prophesied to him about becoming the king of Israel. He prophesied with such accuracy and precision.
Samuel even told Saul by word of knowledge that his father's donkeys were already found. Samuel told Saul that when Saul would prophesy he will be turned into another man. In the same way, the Lord is raising up prophets, releasing prophetic gifts and using them to proclaim His prophetic words to the nations.
"Samuel answered Saul and said, 'I am the seer. Go up before me to the high place, for you shall eat with me today; and tomorrow I will let you go and will tell you all that is in your heart.'" (1 Samuel 9:19)
Everything Lost Will Be Found
The Lord says: "What you think that you may have lost, will certainly be found. I have set you in a particular direction for a purpose and with a plan. Listen for My voice in times of loss and in times of need.
"There are times that I will meet with you when you least expect it, and speak to you in the places where you would least expect it. You will meet others along the way. Just as Samuel anointed Saul with a flask of oil, I call each one individually, and I have a unique way of bringing each one of you into your destiny.
"Just as I spoke through Samuel, many will become My voice to this generation. They have been marked from a young age and they will soon recognize My voice. Some have been called to be prophets to the nations.
"They will walk in a life of victory because they are Spirit-led and not led by their own fleshly desires. They will enter into this higher dimension, and they will receive the fullness of what I have for them. I will place My word in their mouths, which will bring correction as well as direction, as they carry My word and My glory to the ends of the earth," says the Lord.
"Then the Spirit of the Lord will rush upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man." (1 Samuel 10:6)
Prophetic Word Given by Pastor Hank Kunneman on December 3, 2017
"For the announcement at the time of the birthing of the Christ was, 'Peace on earth goodwill towards men', and this is an announcement that I have declared ahead of time for your Christmas season: that I would breathe My shalom, I would breathe My peace, I would breathe My rescue, I would breathe restoration; My wholeness, My health. I would breathe My life upon those—My people—and in the earth.
"Yes, satan is poised to respond against the shalom. For remember when I spoke shalom and the winds ceased and the waters obeyed the Son of God? And yet when the boat reached the other side, one full of a legion of demons came and met the Son of God and the apostles on the shore. Planes, trains, subways, automobiles—this is the device the enemy has said, 'Between now and the new year we shall surely look for vulnerability to strike.'
I Go Throughout the Earth Looking for My Watchmen
"But I go through the earth," says the Spirit of Grace, "and I mark those who, at this moment, would say, 'God, I will pray and be a watchman.' The hands of the enemy shall be held and a restraining order upon him and those who cooperate with him. Pray for shalom. Pray against the actions of the enemy who seeks to destroy and to hinder.
"Germany, there's trouble brewing. United Kingdom, there is trouble brewing." God says, "I am exposing and I will continue to expose, but I need the level of prayer to come to a higher place so that I can remove and not just expose, and I can bring to justice those who demand justice to fall upon their heads.
A Boomerang to the Enemy
"Listen now," says the Spirit of God, "they have touched the man that I have placed in the house called White, and they have touched the vice president and they have spoken to create a proverb and lies. Yet, there are the gallows that wait to try and trip up this administration and to formulate lies, even in the next 10 days. Yet those, like Haman, who have prepared the gallows shall they themselves hang upon it.
"For I have released out of My heavens," says the Spirit of God, "a boomerang. And what you have thrown at the administration, I speak to you and I speak to the media, it shall come back and it shall expose you."

Prophetic word given by Charles Shamp on February 5, 2017:
Today I saw walls of protection going up around the United States of America. I heard the Lord say, "I have given the country the Key of David."
I saw the Key come down and rest over Washington, D.C. and I saw the address change at the White House to read Isaiah 22:22, "And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open."
I saw a door of destruction has been closed over the nation and a door of blessing will be opened – American you have nothing to fear! The Lord says, "I have locked out your enemies and no harm will come to you. Those who seek your demise will be stopped at your borders from this day forward."
A Vision of Jerusalem
I suddenly was taken to Israel and saw the borders of Israel pushed out and a door standing closed over Jerusalem. I said, "What is this, Lord?"
I heard the Lord say, "This is a door of blessing for America. I have given them the key to victory in the Middle East. They shall open the door and do what others were afraid to."
I saw this Key open the door and a flood of blessing came down. I heard the Lord say that: "Two blessings will come to America when the US moves its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem."
First, the Lord will pour out a blessing over the United States dollar, it will soar to new heights; and secondly I saw the name David come out from the door and the Lord said, "There will come a man like David from the United States – a military man who will have a great mind." The Lord will give him wisdom and he will crush ISIS and remove its head; he will lead the US to victory over this darkness.

With all the talk of "impeachment and accusations" here is a prophetic word that the Lord is saying with His perspective. In this day when it is often difficult to know who or what to believe, we must not forget the Lord does nothing in the earth unless He reveals His secrets to His servants, the prophets (Amos 3:7). The true function of the prophetic gifting is to serve others with Heaven's perspective by answering the call to come up higher, seeing things from the Throne Room like the Apostle John in Revelation 4:1.
Prophetic Word given by Hank Kunneman on March 19, 2017:
The Spirit of God says, "The bickering, the back-biting and division will become a thing that will be settled in the United States!
"There is a day and there is a way that is coming fast to this nation, the United States. Did you hear what I said to you?" says the Spirit. "There is a way and there is a day that is coming to this nation. The bickering, the back-biting, the division shall become a thing that will be settled, and there is a shift that is taking place in the United States, and I am rising up upon this land and I am healing it and it is in the process.
"Do not think those who are speaking loudly, and loudly they are speaking, but they are not speaking by Me; and they have gathered in a place away from the White House, and they gather and they meet in secret.
"But oh I stand in the midst of them, and I hear what they say and I am watching the trouble that they are trying to create for this nation and for this administration, and I say, 'It shall not have its way!'
"For you will raise up from this place away from the White House and you will say, 'Impeach, impeach, impeach!' and you will seek to stir this up as a proverb in the land. No, this is foolishness!
"And so as I open the ground and I swallowed up those and that which was troubling a nation called Israel in the days of Moses and Korah, this will be swallowed up too. For there is a way, My way. And there is a day where the healing balm shall flow upon this land, and I shall unite it."

Dreams Over America and President Trump
About 12 years ago, I had a dream of seeing a battleship. It was as if I was in a plane above the ocean and as I looked down, there was a huge battleship laying on its side in the middle of the ocean. It was the "US CONSTITUTION," and I felt sure it was going to sink. The side that was upturned (exposed) was covered in rust. I know Bob Jones used to tell me that rust represented "corruption."
Then I saw a hand come down from Heaven with a huge paint brush and a large can of that grey anti-rust paint and He (God) began to paint the anti-rust stuff on the side of the ship. Then I though it would be OK. I woke up thinking, "God will rescue the Constitution."
I had a second dream about 6 years ago, and again I was high up, like in a plane, looking down and the "US Constitution" was still lying on its side in the water. It was still rusted, but I saw the figure of a man in "overalls" and he was standing on the rusted side with this can of that anti-rust paint (like I saw in my first dream) and he was painting over the rust. So again I thought, "Good, the Constitution will be OK."
Then I wondered "who" that man was because he was in a dangerous place standing on the rusted side. The rust (corruption) could cave in on him, so I prayed that he would be able to apply that anti-corruption paint safely. Then it was as if the camera zoomed in and I saw who the man in the overalls was – Donald Trump! I was a bit amazed as I only knew of him from seeing a couple of apprentice shows (this dream was six years ago).
When I first heard that Trump was considering running for President I was a bit surprised because he was not a politician, but then I remembered the man in the overalls who was helping with "repairing the corruption."
I didn't think about it anymore until I was in New Zealand ministering and was very busy. One night at a hotel, I suddenly awoke at 3am and was wide awake. I made some tea and turned on the TV. It was a whole program about the Trump family; I didn't know any of his family. So I started watching; they showed his whole family, even his grandkids.
As I started watching this show about the Trump family, this beautiful aroma came into my hotel room and filled the whole room. It was like sweet Almond oil. I smelled it and breathed it in the entire time the program was on for an hour. When the show finished the Almond oil aroma just drifted away. It was so awesome that from that day, I knew that although Trump didn't "look the part," he was called to make upright the "US Constitution." God told me He will protect the Constitution because He wrote it.
"Russia, Shocking News, Shakings and the Disarming of Fools!" 11/3/2017
As many seek the Lord in prayer, here is a prophetic word given back on October 15th that we can use as points to pray about. This word was given prior to the things we are seeing about Russia in the news. It's a another call for God's people to watch a pray!
Prophetic Word Given by Hank Kunneman on October 15th, 2017 10:45AM Service:
Shocking News, Shakings and the Disarming of Fools!
"For I have declared," says the Lord God of Hosts, "that in this New Year I shall speak with My voice, and My voice shall be heard loudly; for the media and those who listen to the media and repeat their words are speaking loudly.
"But now I shall put My hand upon the neck of the media, and they shall speak what I shall force them to say, because they will not be able to deny that which shall happen before them, and great and fearful sights shall unfold that shall be the work of My hand. For in this time, I say to you who have ears to hear, I have declared in My Word: pray, watch, and then give thanks.
"I speak this to you at this moment because it is time now for the Lord to act. It is time for the Lord to show you what I am about to unveil. This that I shall do, shall be reported, it shall be known and it shall be seen. Listen to what I say:
"Disarm a fool, and this is folly if you disarm him only. Disarm a fool and displace him is far better wisdom. So this that I speak shall happen. This that I speak, it is now time for your president, it is time for the generals, and it is time for that which is and shall be covert – it is time for Me to act. Watch. Pray.
I Will Shake Russia
"Surely this earth will give thanks for they will say, 'Is this how you deal with a mad man?' Watch. My voice shall shake the Bear, Russia.
"There shall come surprising and shocking news out of you, Russia. Your soil will shake. Your leader and leadership shall be shaken. Your buildings will be shaken. Your military I shall shake. I will take that which has been done in secret with Iran, and I will shake it and bring it to the light.
"I will shake, O' Bear of Russia, what you have been working and what you have worked in secret even with North Korea. It is time for the Lord to act, and I will shake free from Ukraine the hand of the Bear.
"It is time," says the Spirit of God, "to show this earth that I am the Lord who sits as King. It is time for Me to show that I have a sense of humor. Now watch and behold the wonders of your God, who can back off a Bear, who can hold the Dragon at bay, that I may disarm and displace a fool."
I see Alabama. The Spirit of God says, "Watch Alabama. Watch how I will move through their courts that shall be a prototype of what I will bring to the court that you say is Supreme. Are you ready for vacancies? Are you ready to see how I will step in and shake your Supreme Court once again?
"Watch, watch Me surprise you, and watch Me establish righteousness and godliness upon your courts. Look to Alabama, I will do it there and I will do it upon your court, your Supreme Court too," says the Spirit of grace.
Prophetic word released by Charles Shamp on October 15, 2017:
As I was in prayer for the nation of America, I was shown a shift taking place in the Supreme Court of the United States. I saw the reign of one from California that will come to an end and another will take their place.
I heard the Lord say, "I am raining My righteousness upon the highest court in this land. I will reverse the curse and judgment placed upon My people and release justice and truth from the highest seat in this nation. I have chosen who sits in the seat of power in your country, and I will also choose those who will sit in the seat of justice in your land.
"I will set one like Samuel to rule in righteousness, one who carries conviction for truth and puts My laws in practice. I will set your house of justice in order to reverse the judgments placed upon your country by the will of men. For I formed this great nation out of the palm of My hand to be a beacon of hope and a light for all nations to see.
"Satan would have sifted you as wheat, but there was one, a woman who stood in the gap for you, America—My Bride. She would not let go of Me, although she felt barren inside. She cried out like Hannah to Me for My Son, and I am answering her great cry and call with a 'great awakening' that is about to fall. An outpouring that will sweep the land and bring sleeping liberty back from the dead. A resurrection of morals and holiness will be seen again, a love for God and county will begin.
Mercy For America
"My Kingdom will shine through these fifty 'stars and stripes' to show the nations of the earth My great light. I will replace the false laws that have been placed in this land and remove the hate and bloodshed perpetrated by demonically-inspired men. My sentence and judgment will be conveyed through those I am about to put into place and it will not be changed.
"I have chosen mercy for America, she will rise again to be a great nation that carries My conviction and I will remove the stains of sin. Redemption and restoration will be your portion and reward, for I have rebuked the devourer for your sake. You will flourish and prosper once again.
"Judgment and destruction will pass over your house, for the prayers of the righteous will rewrite the laws of the land. I will come and sign them with My own hand. My people will see a great sight in the Senate and in the House as legislation that carries My convictions and purposes are set in place."

11 Types of Prophetic Ministries
Do you remember the richly ornamented robe Jacob made for his favorite son Joseph (Gen. 37)? That coat set Joseph apart and caused him to stand out from the crowd. Everywhere Joseph went, he wore the mantle that represented his father's favor. In God's Kingdom, each of us is the Father's favored son or daughter (Gal. 3:26-29). The unique mix of spiritual gifts He has given to us individually is like Joseph's richly ornamented robe. "We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us." (Rom. 12:6)
Here are some different types of prophetic ministries in the Bible. This is a starting point only, for every prophet in Scripture was unique. The first two are broad categories, within which the other types of prophetic ministries operate. You may notice you relate to some of these more than others.
1. The Realm of Mysteries
The Holy Spirit often communicates in mysteries such as dreams, visions, prophetic parables and symbolic pictures. For some, this is a primary way they receive and minister prophetic insights. A mystery requires interpretation and its meaning is not always immediately discernible. God is inviting us to go on a journey with Him—we discover Him as "the revealer of mysteries" (Dan. 2:28).
The prophet Ezekiel received and conveyed prophecy in the realm of mystery. Some visions, such as the valley of dry bones (Ezek. 37) were symbolic. Other mysteries were Heavenly realities—visions of the cherubim and throne of God—that could not be comprehended by the natural mind (Ezek. 1, 10-11).
2. The Realm of Knowledge
Some prophetic ministry operates in the sphere of knowledge. Knowledge can relate to actual events in the past, present or future—knowledge of the future being "foretelling". In his list of gifts of the Spirit, Paul refers to a "word of knowledge" (1 Cor. 12:8).
Samuel was a prophet who operated in the realm of knowledge. In 1 Samuel 9, he tells Saul the donkeys he lost three days earlier are found (knowledge of past). He tells Saul he will shortly meet a party who will inform Saul his father is now worried about him (present and future knowledge). He then goes on to instruct Saul concerning his kingship (1 Sam. 10).
Before I share the other types, let's note that a mystery is not a less significant way that God communicates (than knowledge). It is just different. The Holy Spirit uses both mysteries and knowledge to speak to us prophetically.
3. Prophetic Writing
Many prophets in the Bible were writing prophets. We know this, because some prophets were used of God to write Scripture. Of these, some, such as Habakkuk, were poets. But not all prophets recorded their words in writing. The Prophetess Huldah gave verbal prophetic counsel in 2 Kings 22:14-20.
4. Prophetic Arts and Creative
The Holy Spirit used the Prophet Ezekiel in prophetic acts that were creative and dramatic in nature. In Ezekiel 4 and 5, he uses prophetic sculpture and art, along with drama, to portray the coming judgment on Jerusalem.
5. Prophetic Worship and Music
Some of the Psalms are prophecies that were originally set to music. King David was a prophetic Psalmist and musician. We read, "David, together with the commanders of the army, set apart some of the sons of Asaph, Heman and Jeduthun for the ministry of prophesying, accompanied by harps, lyres and cymbals" (1 Chron. 25:1, NIV).
The prophetess Deborah wrote a song (recorded in Judges 5). In Exodus 15:20 we read, "Then Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took the timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances"(Ex. 15:20, NKJV).
6. Prophetic Speaking (Utterance)
The Prophet Jeremiah was called to be a prophetic voice: "...Behold, I will make My words in your mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them" (Jer. 5:14, NKJV). The prophetic utterances of Haggai and Zechariah were timely exhortations that encouraged the Jewish leaders to rebuild the temple (Ezra 5:1-2).
7. Prophetic Prayer and Intercession
Some prophets majored in prayer. Daniel is one whose life was characterized by prayer, fasting and intercession (Dan 6:10, Chapter 9). In the New Testament we meet Anna, a prophetic intercessor, who meets the answer to her prayer in the young child Jesus (Luke 2:36-38).
8. Prophetic Dreams and Interpretation
Daniel was gifted by God to understand and interpret dreams and visions.
"...Daniel...was found to have a keen mind and knowledge and understanding, and also the ability to interpret dreams, explain riddles and solve difficult problems." (Dan. 5:12, NIV, see also Dan. 1:17)
Daniel not only interpreted the dreams of others; he personally received dreams and visions from God concerning the future. Daniel chapter 7 is one example of a dream given to Daniel.
9. Signs and Wonders Prophets
Elijah and Elisha were prophets who were used by God in signs and wonders, as was Moses. Healing and miracles occurred through their ministries and the laws of nature were overcome.
10. Prophetic Visionaries / Seers
Jeremiah's early prophetic insights (chapter 1) consisted of simple pictures—an almond tree branch, a boiling pot. His ongoing prophetic ministry was very pictorial in nature. The book of Revelation is a book of prophetic vision given to the Apostle John. The ministry of Ezekiel is also characterized by vision.
11. Prophetic Teaching and Preaching
Moses was both a prophet and a teacher. He wrote, "Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak; And hear, O earth, the words of My mouth. Let My teaching drop as the rain, My speech distill as the dew..." (Deut. 32:1-2, NKJV).
Silas in the New Testament was a prophet who, along with Judas, strengthened and encouraged the Church "...with many words" (Acts 15:32). He later preached alongside Paul on his missionary trips (Acts 15:40, 17:14).
The above observations are a starting point only, to help us explore and identify the unique gifts we have been given. Which do you relate to? You will probably relate to more than one.
Understand There are Seasons Where Different Gifts are Being Highlighted
There are times when one type of prophetic ministry becomes prominent in the Body of Christ. For a season, it seems as though the spotlight is on that particular expression of ministry.
Right now, the realm of prophetic knowledge (word of knowledge) is gaining a lot of attention. I remember a time in the 1990's when prophetic intercession was being highlighted.
God allows these seasons of emphasis for a reason. He is growing us in these areas, so that we can be inspired and reach for more of what is available in the prophetic ministry of the Holy Spirit. But there is also an element of testing. We can be tempted to elevate one expression of the gift beyond what the Scripture does.
See Your Gift and Ministry from Heaven's Viewpoint
Your gift may be hidden from public view, but that does not mean it is insignificant. Some ministries, by their very nature, are hidden. Prophetic intercession can be a private ministry. God may call you to minister to one or a few, and your gift may be unseen by people.
Just as invisible light, such as infrared, x-ray and ultraviolet can have extraordinary power when focused, a hidden but focused ministry is powerful. Remember, Heaven's viewpoint is vastly different to our perception on earth.
Prophesied on The Den by Kim Clement on November 22nd, 2014:
"America, you shall be one! America, you shall stand as one! And those from the north and the south and the east and the west shall say, 'Our plans have been foiled. We did not prosper with the weapons that we sent against this nation. We did not prosper because unity began to arise from the states within America!' Because I called My people, the remnant, I called those that were called and elected for this day and for this purpose. And I can hear the sound of unity coming from this nation," says the Lord!
And new weapons that have been formed, new weapons that will come, shall be discovered before they can be used against Israel. For this is the burden of this prophet and this shall be spoken. Hear the word of the Lord:
"For today, as you bless Israel, as you endeavor to send love to Israel, My people shall receive a double portion in return. When you sow in your need, and you sow within your need, I shall bring back to you the blessing that I promised to those that would bless Israel.
"The weapons that they have formed against Israel shall be discovered before they can use it. For I will give Israel a new technology, and I will give her a new strategy, and it shall be greater than what it has now. For it shall see the plans before they can leave the ground. This is My promise to Israel, My nation," says the Lord.
This is the message which the Eternal burdened His prophet concerning Israel – the Eternal One who began existence by stretching out the sky and founding the Earth and forming the spirit deep in man. "Hear these words," says the Eternal One:
"Watch what I'm about to do. I'm going to make Jerusalem like a cup of strong alcohol to confuse all her neighboring peoples. When they lay siege to Jerusalem, Judah also will fight, and praise shall arise from the streets – not only praise for Yahweh but praise for Yahweh Yeshua. And on that day when the enemies begin to attack, I will make Jerusalem a solid stone which cannot be moved. Anyone who tries to lift her, lift the stone called Jerusalem, will only be weighed down and seriously hurt themselves," says the Lord.
"Jerusalem Will Remain Safe and Secure," Says the Lord!
"On that day, and that day is approaching now, I promise, I, the Eternal One, will confound every horse and drive every rider to madness," says the Lord. "Go Zechariah! Go Zechariah!
"I will keep a watchful eye on My people, even as I blind every war horse from every enemy nation. The people of Jerusalem cannot be beat because of the Eternal Commander of the heavenly armies, and their true God leads them. On that day, I will make the clans and the tribes of Judah a blazing pot igniting a pile of tinder, a flaming torch consuming dry bundles of wheat. They will devour all the surrounding peoples, those to the right and those to the left, but Jerusalem will remain safe and secure," says the Lord! "Go Zechariah! Go Zechariah!"
The Eternal will ensure that victory comes first to the houses of Judah so that the respect due to the family of David and the citizens of Jerusalem will not outstrip the respect owed to Judah as a whole. So Jerusalem need not boast, but neither should it fear. I'm going to say that again. Jerusalem, do not boast, but do not fear at the same time.
For when that day comes, the Eternal will protect her citizens as a shield does. He will make the weak who stumble become like David, brave in battle. The royal line of David, Yeshua, will be like God, like the special messenger of the Eternal One who goes before them in travels and in battle.
"Rest assured, I will set out to destroy all the nations who attack Jerusalem. Rest assured, I will set out to attack all the nations that attack Jerusalem, and I pledge – are you listening to Me?" God says, "Today, I pledge that I will pour out a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy on the family of David and the citizens of Jerusalem," says the Lord! (To read original word click here.)

"I have searched for a man and a woman who would stand in the Oval Office and pray and call for the restoration of the fortunes of Zion.

This will not happen," says the Lord, "for I will take you on a journey today into Jerusalem, where it shall be prophesied through song by My prophet what I intend doing in Jerusalem and in the United States of America at the same time," says the Lord.
"I am restoring the fortunes of Zion. I am restoring the fortunes that were the inheritance of My people. I am restoring the fortunes of those that are the elect of God and have been stolen from. You shall eat your delicacies again, and your children will no longer be your food. You shall not use them and take them out of the womb anymore," says the Lord. (To read this full word click here.)

At Israel's Birthday in 2018
"I was able to tear down the wall through Ronald Reagan, and the curtain, but there are two more walls that will come down. And in 2018, at the celebration of Israel's birthday, there shall be an outpouring of My Spirit in Israel, like it has not had since the days of David and the days of Jesus. You listen to Me, everybody.
"But I have prepared My Holy Spirit, who is part of our Godhead, our Trinity, to bring upon the earth, and especially America, Canada, France, the Netherlands, Germany, and many others, a move of the Holy Spirit that will creep over into the streets of the Middle East. And there shall be Damascus Road conversions take place in the highest places in terrorist organizations, and they shall come out and they shall reveal the truth and the evil of Islam. And there shall be a shaking in the kingdom, and the way that I shook in 1900 at the turn of the Century, in 1948, in the '60s and the '70s – I will accumulate them all in one and I shall pour out of My Spirit with a global renewal," says the Lord.
