Prophetic Perspectives


There is a freshness that comes at the beginning of a new year.  In the atmosphere of the beginning of a new year there is a desire and sense that new things can be accomplished.  That is why people make new year resolutions.  God has made it so that ALL people (saved and not saved) sense the potential and possibilities that are available at the beginning.

Remember in Genesis chapter 1, "…In the beginning God created…"  As we step into a NEW YEAR God connects us all to the creativity that exists in that new place.  This is the pattern of God.  He is the Giver of NEW BEGINNINGS tying us all to hope.  This whole dynamic is part of the prophetic dimension that God extends to us.  The more we understand what the prophetic is and includes, the more we can benefit from this incredible gift of God!  The prophetic is all about the future.  Scripture says, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."  Holy Spirit brings us continual revelation of our future – this is the prophetic.  And in that future is ALWAYS hope because God puts it there.  If you can’t see the hope or hear the hope in your future, ask Holy Spirit to lead and connect you to this hope – IT IS ALWAYS THERE.

Here are some excerpts from our December 29th Sunday service that released prophetic perspective for 2020.

  • See to it that you do not refuse Him who is speaking (Hebrews 12.25).  This will be a year of cleansing and purifying of hearts.
  • The Lord is going to detox our hearts by going to the very core of our hearts.
  • The Lord is desiring truth in our inner most being (Psalm 51).
  • The pure in heart will see the Lord (Psalm 24).
  • All of the issues of life flow from the heart; hearts needed to be guarded (Proverbs 4).
  • The Lord says, "Don’t be focused on all of the tension in the world, be focused on the tension God is stirring in your heart.  As you allow Him to establish you on the firm foundation of Jesus, you will overcome the tension on the outside.  For this is a time you will be either hot or cold, you can’t straddle the fence any longer.  Yes, there is gross darkness in the world but don’t loose focus because of the natural things.  The glory of the Lord is rising in you."
  • This year focus your eyes on Jesus, for this year we are going to get rid of all the things that encumber us.

This is a year of solemn assembly.
This will be a year of acceleration.
2020God is taking His people, separating them out of the world and making us His own.
Love the Lord with all of your soul, all of your might and all of your heart.
Walk in His ways.
Serve Him.
The Lord wants ALL of our hearts.
He is pouring His grace upon on us that we might have whole hearts.
God says, fasten me upon your heart as a seal of fire that will seal you in My love.
Yield everything to the fiery love of God.
God’s love never fails.
The cutting edge of the prophetic is the fiery passionate love of His heart.
Enter and receive God’s love like never before.
In the midst of His love you will find the empowering grace for all that comes in 2020.
Let His love saturate and fill you and let it fill your mouth with His words of life.
The love of God purifies our hearts burning away prejudice, offense and rejection.
The love of God shed abroad in your heart will change your language.

Prophesy spoken to us: "I have called you to newness of life.  I have called you My children and My children hear My voice.  I am doing a new thing and I am revealing it to you.  I have put rivers in your desert.  Old things have passed away and all things have become new.  I have taken many old things and I have brought newness to the old.  So look again – the things that you understood in the past you will see through the lens of the newness of life in this coming year."

In the natural there will be: increased lawlessness, an antichrist spirit will come at a heightened level, war over who controls the air – the air waves and waterways and water supply.  Michigan is strategic to this because we have the Great Lakes.  Lawsuits will be filed trying to get Michigan’s water.  Food shortages in the USA.  Increase in unusual weather.  Earthquakes even where there are no fault lines.  Increased natural disasters.  Increased persecution and attacks on the true church.  Increased division between evil and righteousness.  Middle ground will be taken away.  One small nuclear strike somewhere in the world.

In the supernatural there will be young prophets arising in boldness to speak the word of the Lord.  Prophets will be able to speak into this nation in a new way.  Increasing influence of righteousness in the 7 mountains of culture.  The fear of the Lord will return to the church.  Holiness will return.  God is no longer allowing compromise in His people and church.  Radical salvation of some young people who God will raise up quickly, and they will have great influence in the nation for His kingdom.


As we enter a new year and a new decade the Lord will help us to embrace and align with how He is moving and what He is saying through the prophetic word.  We are entering a year where the emphasis will be upon the mouth and the words spoken.  Through social media there are many portals in our lives for us to hear what is being spoken by many groups with multiple agendas.  2020 will be a time that we will need greater discernment than ever before as deception increases.

What will we be speaking in 2020?  How will we talk?  What arguments will try to persuade us to join their point of view?  There are many talking heads in our culture today.  Jesus said that He only speaks what His Father in heaven speaks.  David says in the Psalms that he put a guard over his mouth, meaning he carefully considered what words he spoke.  Paul tells the Colossian people there are ones that take pleasure in pretending to be experts of something they know nothing about.  Their reasoning is meaningless and comes only from their own opinions.  Jesus tells us in John 16, that the Holy Spirit is given to us to continually lead us into ALL truth.  The prophetic word God speaks to us is to help us know His truth and stay in His truth.

Below is a portion of the prophetic word released in our December 8th service.  Listen to the entire prophetic word on our website

It is a new hunting season; and I fill your quiver with arrows of scripture that will penetrate cold hearts, hardened hearts.  For it is not enough to ask for divine appointments, for when you have them what are you going to say?  I want to fill your mouths with My words.  You are My archers.  And I would remind you what would it profit a man to only love those who love him?  I am calling you to seek out the unlovely, those who have no intention to come to Christ.  It is with your passion and your zeal with the arrow of the revelatory prophetic word, with the heat of the passion and the love of Christ in your hearts -- that  even the coldest hearts shall be melted and receive Christ.  So I say to you this is your hunting season.  You are My archers.  Go out into the countryside for there are many that are awaiting salvation.  This is the time that I have called you to go out.

Your miracle is HERE.  Now faith is.  Your miracle is manifesting.   It is already here.  The day you prayed and made that request I sent the answer says God.  Keep your switch of faith turned on.  In My presence I am releasing a manifestation and demonstration of My presence and My power.  Receive right now.  Your miracle is exploding from within you with a fresh touch of My presence, a fresh outpouring of My fullness.  For this is a time where I am covering the earth with the sound of My presence and the sound of My glory.  This is a time that you will see the manifestation of the full glory of Jesus filling the earth.  It starts from you – from the inside out.  Freely you have received so freely begin to release it with a fresh compassion for those around you.  Begin to see through My eyes and learn what compassion is all about.  Release My fullness – even to your enemies right now.  Begin to see those that have been against you coming into an encounter with Me, says the Lord.  This is a time you will be a carrier of My presence.  And as you go out you will begin to see manifestations without even saying a word.  I will radiate out of your innermost being -- flow with Me says the Lord.  Press in, press in now.  Now is the time of manifestation.

Prophetic Perspectives - 01-2020See the multitudes that are crying out I need a breakthrough.  For I have called you to be a people that are kingdom advancers – to reach out to all nations.  That the people might enter in to the family of God, to the kingdom of God.  They need you, they need you – go forth into the nations.  This is a day that the kingdom of heaven is advancing and many shall enter in at this time.

During service Holy Spirit demonstrated through us corporately the above prophetic words.  It was extraordinary and powerful!!  Apostle Bob started to declare and decree over our nation as the Lord filled his mouth with His words.  We were in agreement as a congregation with the Spirit of God.  Others joined with prayers of declaration.  This is a powerful dynamic where corporately we are bringing heaven into earth to bring change.  This is what the Spirit of God is moving us into for 2020, and through us the Spirit of God will impart into the nations of the earth. Part of this is transcribed below.

We pray a spirit of wisdom and revelation into our president, into our congress and our supreme court.  Our nation stands in the valley of decision right now.  It is not looking for man’s approval but it is looking for whose side will we stand on.  We stand in the gap and we choose and say yes to Your kingdom, Your righteousness.  This day we say let there be exposure of deception and lies.  Father let there be a spirit of truth released on this nation to break the spirit of philosophy and intellectualism.  We see the kingdom of God invading our nation, exploding across our nation.  We pray a spirit of revelation of who God is for our political leaders.  We agree with heaven and declare that righteousness will prevail.  Bring forth truth.  We bind confusion.   We break the spirit of deception that has been released on our nation.  We release rightness, peace and truth.  We release the love of the Father over our nation.  No more division.  We break the power of division over our nation.  We release unity in the name of Jesus.


These prophetic words are from October 13, after Cross Immersion.  At Cross Immersion there was a very strong impartation and encounter with God.  These prophesies reflect that.  They are fresh, strong and for NOW.  Read them slowly and out loud – allowing the words to penetrate into your soul and heart. Let these words form new thinking patterns.

Prophetic Words:

This is a season of great penetration for I am penetrating your very core to work out that that needs to be removed to pour in that which is needed to live as a dominion people, to live as a kingdom people that breaks through the enemies ranks.  For I am stripping away the veils.  I am taking away every veil of religiosity.  I am causing you to enter into a greater intimacy, a greater hearing, a greater seeing.  You will walk in dominion and will be gatekeepers.

  • God speaks of dominion several times in this word.  Dominion is power, strength and might.  That dominion comes through Jesus Christ in us, the hope of glory.  It is not strength or might in our own flesh but by the Spirit.
  • Colossians 1.11 says to be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might…
  • This is a place to stop and meditate on what God is speaking.  What He is imparting.  Conscientiously receive His provision and thank Him for strengthening you.  He is equipping us for the time we are living in.
  • When you come up against challenges in your life, remember this word and God’s promise – He will strengthen us by the power of His might.  The battle belongs to the Lord.  Allow courage and strength to fill you by the Spirit of God.  Walking in dominion is also walking in victory.  The enemy has been defeated by the work of the cross.  Allow God to lead you in victory.
  • In the following words you will hear God continuing to speak to you about His power in you.

Yes, I am great and mighty in power.  But I call you great.  I am making you My great ones.  Because I live inside of you – I call you great.  I call you mighty in power.  My power lives in you.  So you are My great ones.  You might not see it or feel it right now.  But I see you as great.  You are created in My image – in My likeness.  You are great!!

Open up the doors and reign.  For I am in you My sons and daughters.  I have called you for such a time as this.  I have placed you in this earth so open up your heart to Me.  Open up your heart to Me and reign.  For I have warred for you.  Declare you reign in Me.  Open up your heart and reign for this is My desire for you.  Healing is upon your lips and prosperity is upon your heart.  So open up your door and reign in Me.  Declare with a loud voice that I am your King!  Declare with a loud voice that you are free!  Open up the door and reign with Me.

He is on the inside of you.  And out of your belly will flow rivers of living water as you acknowledge Him.  He not only fills you but out of your belly flows the life of God.  Christ in you the hope of glory.  He is King right now.  Let the peace of God well up inside of you.  Let Holy Spirit take over and be stabilized on the Rock.  The Rock cannot be shaken.  He is a firm foundation.  Let the familiar cycles of religion be broken off.  Let freedom bubble up inside of you.  A freedom to move into this dimension of the Spirit that is opened up to us.  The Spirit of the Lord is moving – let Him come in.  Your identity is a new creation in Christ.  Receive your new identity.  The Father says that He is good and so you are good.  Receive right now.  Let it go deep.  Believe and receive.  God is breaking the chains of bondage right now.  Every stronghold broken.  Allow the alignment of the Spirit of God come in and bring you into alignment.  It is a supernatural work of the Spirit.  Release the sound of freedom.  The sound of glory and the sound of victory.

Prophetic decrees and words released by those attending Cross Immersion.  They are releasing what they received so everyone can join in.

  • Declaring and decreeing right now healing of all digestive issues.  No more delay.  All food intolerance removed.  This is our inheritance in Jesus.
  • No matter if your digestive issue is big or small – healing is yours to take hold of it.  The blessing is already there so receive it.  Take hold of it.  Healing is released.
  • God is perfecting us as sons and daughters to take giants in the land.  To take back what the enemy has stolen.
  • The Lord says that you are the seed of Abraham.  It is through you that God will bring His inheritance.  I have put My power in you and I have put My authority in you.  I will have you speak into nations and into families – you will see turn around and you will see breakthrough.  My kingdom will expand through you.
  • Thank you Lord for apprehending us and our families like you apprehended Abraham for Your purposes.
  • The Lord says, adorn yourself in My wisdom.  I am releasing wisdom to you.  God says that I want to lavish all that I am on you and I am stripping away the veils of separation.  We no longer sit at the table of mediocre.
  • God is not a perfectionist but a perfecter of our faith.
  • God says you began by the work of My Spirit and you will continue by the work of My Spirit.  Do not move into reasoning or conceptualization.  Stay in the flow of My Spirit where there is great power.
  • Remember the promise of God – He will perform it no matter what comes your way.
  • You are good through the power of God.

The prophetic word is given to us by God as an encouragement about our future.  Jeremiah 29.11, says God KNOWS the plans He has for us.  They are plans to prosper us, not to harm us; they are plans God has made to give us a hope and future.  In the prophetic word God reveals His plans for us.  He starts to describe and detail what our future will be through the prophetic.  The prophetic word is like looking through binoculars at the future.  What an advantage the prophetic word gives us as we advance.

If we look at our future through the lens of current events it can bring discouragement and disillusionment.  This view says our future depends on the world, rather than on God.  The prophetic word is seed that sows our future, and it is the plow.  In the prophetic word are the dimensions of God that will bring that word into reality.  When that word is spoken and goes into the fertile soil of our heart, it will produce.  That is an amazing dynamic that we need to understand.  We can take that same word and as we speak it that word becomes a plow or a threshing instrument that breaks any resistance to that word becoming reality!

As you review some of the prophetic words spoken to us over the last month, I encourage you to drink deeply of Holy Spirit.  When we drink deep of the Spirit of God it becomes a gushing fountain springing up and flooding us with life.  Wisdom comes.  Creativity, new ideas and strategy comes.  We become energized to advance into our future that God has for us.  It creates a propulsive force within us and around us.  This is a great advantage.  Seize the prophetic word for yourself and your family.  Let the prophetic word be building blocks of your future.  Let the supply of God fill your heart and thoughts.

Prophetic Words:

These are the days of a fresh prophetic wind.  Fresh apostolic establishment.  There are dimensions yet to be revealed.  There are aspects that you are not aware of.  I am driving My stake into the very heart of your soul.  I want your identities to be secure in Me.  This is a season of saturation in preparation for the release of My glory.

And what is this revelation that you have sought after?  What is this inner peace that you seek?  You know My voice and have cried out for clarity.  You have sought after Me.  Declaring, proposing and seeking My word.  You carry My strength as warriors and worshippers.  I have given you abundance of life and joy and peace.  Step into and grab hold of what I have prepared for you.  Release My word as ones who are filled with My presence.  Release My joy as ones who have overcome.  Release My healing as ones who are whole.  Release My peace as ones who are free.  My word is truth.  You are My chosen ones.  You are My mouthpiece.  You are My chosen generation, My royal priesthood.  You are My sons and daughters and I love you.  Know that your voices are interlinked with mine.  Release My word and see.  I have called you into this place.  Be obedient.

God says, I am stirring up My roar.  I am stirring up My roar deep inside of you.  My authority, release My authority through the roar.  I am stirring up My roar deep inside of you.  Release My roar.  Release My roar.  And chains will fall and lives will change.  And people will run into My kingdom life.  They will see Jesus walking down the street and touch Him.  Release My roar.

For My kingdom is a now kingdom.  As I put My sound inside of you, look at those things that are circumstances and situations.  Look at what is being shaken.  I have put My kingdom inside of you to release My sound.  The dimensions of My kingdom are in My sound.  As you go about your daily business you will see – you will see places My kingdom needs to come.  So release My kingdom into those places.  I have put My kingdom in you so that you would release My kingdom into the earth.  The answer is in My kingdom.  My supply is in My kingdom.  Miracles are in My kingdom.  Do not hold back – today is the day to release My kingdom.  My kingdom is a now kingdom.

I have come to fill you with My Light.  This is not a place that I am passing through.  This is a place of My habitation.  I abide in you.  I am here for you.  Feel My presence right here, right now.  I am here.  I am here.  I am all you need.



In August there was a new sound in the  prophetic word being released.  It was the sound of war.  What does that mean and what do we do?  It means to have the attitude and mindset that Jesus did.  That attitude is the earth is the Lord’s and everything in it.  God has given us an assignment to pray and declare His kingdom come and His will be done.  We are speaking His word into the atmosphere, into the city, into our families, into situations and circumstances.  That “word” has power and authority when it is the word of God.  He watches over His word to make sure it accomplishes what He wants.  God uses us to speak His word!  We are His voice and His mouth.  In Christ we have been given power and authority over the enemy.  When we speak His word it releases the kingdom of God!  Wow!

This is how we fight -- by believing God and standing firm in that faith.  Not backing down or allowing intimidation or popular cultural beliefs to shut our mouth so as to not speak the word of God.  By faith and the word of God we take back what the enemy has stolen.  This makes the enemy a footstool under the feet of Jesus.  Jesus defeated Satan, stripping him of his power and making a public spectacle of him.  This is the work of the cross.  When the enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy, to intimidate and oppress we can release the word of God to establish truth and righteousness.  This is war.  It is not against flesh and blood but powers and principalities of the air – a war that is fought in the heavenlies.

Prophetic Perspectives - 09-2019Prophetic Word:
Hear the sound of war that is in the heavens.  The Lord says, do not fear the sound of war.  But join with Me.  You will be My demonstration and you will be My war club.  I will shield you.  I am named the Captain of the Army of Hosts.  There is a sound of war and I am releasing that sound of war in you.  Come into My cadence and come with Me into a new place.  I have opened the heavens to a place that you have not been to yet, a place you have not experienced.  I am equipping you for war, says the Lord.

Our response back to the Lord:
We are making war in the heavenlies. Tearing down principalities.  Standing firm in Jesus' victory!  Casting down everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of Christ!

Prophetic Word:
There is a sound of war!!

Be strong in the Lord and the power of His might.  Put on the full armor of God that you might stand against the schemes of the devil.  Your struggle is not against flesh and blood but against powers and principalities.  Take up the full armor of God so you will be able to resist in the evil day.  Take up the shield of faith that quenches every fiery dart of the evil one.

These are like the days of Gideon.  The Lord says, I am separating out the remnant.  Those not afraid of confrontation.  This is day to be proactive.  Be part of the remnant.  Choose this day.  Are you part of the assembly of the fearful or part of the remnant that will engage the enemy in war?

I have called you to make war at home.  I have called you to make war at work.  I have called you to make war.  I have called you to make war everywhere you go.  I have told you that darkness will cover the earth.  But you are My light that dispels the darkness.  As you give thanks to Me, My joy and strength is released in you.  As you praise Me more you will see your strength increase mightily in this hour.

Pursue Me.  Come after Me.  You ask what is this new passion and strength you have put into me?  This new capacity?  Greater vision and insight?  The Lord says, it is My clarity; it is My grace for you.  For you are My sons and daughters, My chosen ones.  My priesthood, My family, My congregation.  You are the ones who declare My word and My truth.  I have chosen you.  I am saying this to you – the weapons of your war are not carnal, for the weapons are internal.  For I have drawn you to Me.  I have built your spirit.  I have lifted you up from where you were.  This is My provision for you.

I am your peace.  I am your grace.  I am your joy.  I am your love.  Come be restored.  Come be healed.  Come to Me.  I am your amazing grace.  Come to Me.  Come to Me. 


The prophetic is designed by God to call us up into a whole new relationship, whole new understanding and whole a new reality based upon the promise of God.  The prophetic word tells you what God is making available to you.  The prophetic word enables you to begin to see what you could not previously see.  God uses the prophetic to unlock and open up His promises over our lives, over our families, our nation and over the earth.

The prophetic points to our identity – how God sees us and how God has positioned Himself in our lives.  The Lord speaks to us prophetically to bless us.  The prophetic word activates the promises of God in our lives.  This is a powerful dynamic that only God can orchestrate.

The Lord has been speaking to us prophetically at Harvest on a regular basis.  I want to talk about two specifics prophetic words God has spoken to us multiple times.  I want to teach you how to enter into and benefit from the prophetic words spoken during services.

The two prophetic words that God has spoken again and again are “step in, step in, step in” and the other one is; “I am, I am your strength, I am your healer, I am your provider…”

How do you “step in”.  How do you receive the provision of God.  How do you receive the promises God says He is for you?

John 15 tells us that God is the vine and we are the branches.  This says that He is the supply and we are the receivers of what He supplies – so stay connected to Him to receive.  John 15.4 puts it this way “Abide in Me and I will abide in you”.  Colossians 1.27 says, “Christ in you the hope [or promise] of glory.”  How do we do that?  How does it work?

We enter into the promises of God by faith – just like when you were born again, you believed by faith Jesus died on the cross for you.  When you believed you entered into the promise of God and it became real for you.  Access opened up and you entered in.  This is how you receive the prophetic word – the same way!  Believe and receive!

Prophetic Perspectives - August 2019NOW abide in that provision, which means you continue to BELIEVE what God said is true – Jesus Christ is your strength, your peace, your healer, your provider and you are what He says you are.  This is how you continue to draw on the provision of the prophetic promise.

Doubts and questioning may come in your mind and emotions.  This is not from God!  God says to abide and stay in His promises; He is the vine and we are the branches.  Look at your emotions, evaluate your thoughts.  Where are the doubts and questioning coming from?  2 Corinthians 10 tells us that to stay in the place of tangible benefit that we are to bring every thought captive to Jesus.  This means believe God’s promise over circumstances; speak to your doubts in your mind and say to yourself “I believe the promise of God”.  Colossians 2.8 states it this way – “Beware that no one distracts you or intimidates you in their attempt to lead you away from Christ’s fullness by pretending to be full of wisdom when they’re filled with endless arguments of human logic.”

So…step in, step in, step in, do not hesitate, do not wait, do not put off what God is making available to you NOW.  Step in and receive the tangible benefit.  Allow the favor of God and the goodness of God to rise up and be visible in your life.

In Isaiah 46 God speaks this prophetic promise that is still a promise for us today: “I am God and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me.  I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times what is still to come.  I say; My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.  Think about this promise in a personal way.

This is the Sovereign Lord speaking!  He is saying to you, I am God and there is nothing and no one above Me.  No one else is like Me or even comes close.  I chose you and I chose your beginning and end.  I give you purpose and I provide all that you need to accomplish the purpose I gave you.  I will work My promises in your life to bring about My intended purpose.  Nothing can stop My purposes or cancel out My promises.  My promises are yes and amen to you.

Wow!!  How much the prophetic imparts into our lives.  Feel the strength of His promise inside your spirit.  Hear how it resonates that God is speaking to YOU!

The prophetic word builds us up and makes us stronger.  It gives us understanding and focus.  It builds our confidence.  Paul talks about the prophecies spoken over Timothy’s life and how powerful those prophecies are.  Paul says to Timothy, your prophecies are a strength in your life.  Use them as encouragement.  You can even use your prophecies as a weapon as you wage warfare by faith.  What does that mean?  Paul is telling Timothy keep your heart set on what God has spoken to you.  Use that to destroy other thoughts and arguments that come to take away or dilute the promises God has spoken t you.  Use your prophetic words to stay focused and on track.

Listen carefully to what is spoken prophetically during service at Harvest.  These are prophetic words and promises that God is speaking to you!  He wants you to have them and is making them available.

I encourage you to step in and receive.  Write down key words and phrases and repeat them to yourself, sending the prophetic word deep into your heart.  The prophetic word is God’s provision to you!  Even ask God to speak to you prophetically in your times with Him and in your everyday life – HE WILL!!
