“2019 is the year of Salvation. The year the prodigal comes home.”
I was getting ready for church on Wednesday January 9th.
God had asked me on January 3rd, 2019 to take a giant leap of faith.
First, he told me that He is recalculating and has decided to change the pace. I told him of course that yes, whatever He thinks is right, I am going to follow and trust Him, but why is he doing this? He told me He can trust me with this. He asked me to take this leap of faith on January 3rd. The moment I said yes, and I did it, God confirmed it to me with immediate financial blessing, with verses, signs, dreams, and through the words of trusted advisers.
As I was getting ready on January 9th, God was speaking with his still small voice to me. I was listening and talking with him, but after a few minutes I said “Lord, wait please just a minute. You’ve been speaking to me with your still small voice and you know that I trust you Lord and will faithfully follow where you lead me, but you’ve asked me to take this big risk. Please, could you speak plainly to me in a loud audible voice.” I heard nothing, so I forgot about the request and decided to trust in the Lord’s small voice anyways.
My pastor stood on the stage on Wednesday, January 9th and the first thing he said was “You know the story of the prodigal son. God has given me a word that 2019 is the year of salvation. The year the prodigal comes home.” I wept. It was God speaking plainly to mean in the loud audible voice I had asked for. Goodbye fear and doubt!
I am claiming it now. In boldness! The Lord has given me five words for 2019! Transformed, Renewed, Revived, Breakthrough, and Restored. The Lord has given me many visions over the years, in 2017 and 2018 for the journey I am on and Chris is on and the miracles God is doing. I am seeing those continue and come to fulfillment in 2019 and 2020.
By August 2019 the chains of sin will be broken from Chris and his desire will be for the Lord. He will be Transformed.
The definition of transformed is “make a thorough or dramatic change in the form, appearance, or character of”.
Dead in his sin and ready to be alive in you. His form and appearance has been alive and “happy”. He will be broken down to the bottom. Dead. He came for my daughters birthday yesterday. He and my son and I played a drawing game. His prompt was to draw “Me in the future”. He drew a tombstone with RIP on it. He doesn’t realize how symbolic that is. He is about to be dead to his sin. In one of those visions, God had shown that he was ripping the demon from this mans back and that his body would fall to the ground dead. No, he won’t be physically dead, but completely at the end of his abilities. He will be alone, broken, and in desperate need. Dead.
Transformed. It will happen over the course of this year. As he is serving in Afghanistan. As he is seeing sadness and war. As he is experiencing life without love. And then coming home to see he has no better life to come home to. His wife and family are not rejoicing and picking him up after a long hard deployment. He will see his brothers in arms and their families, but his will be gone. No one rejoices for his homecoming. He will be broken. Transformed to the bottom.
In September 2019, You will Renew him. You will stand his dry bones up from the dust.
Ezekiel 37:4-8 “Then he said to me, ‘Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’ So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. I looked and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.”
He will be renewed. You will stand up his body, he will be covered in flesh, but be a lifeless, hollow shell. In September, you will renew him. In the vision, God picked him up and stood his lifeless body on its feet.
Some synonyms to renew: return to, pick up again, take up again, come back to, reopen, begin again, start again, restart
You will restart with his hollow shell. Removing the heart of stone to replace it with a heart of flesh. He will soften for his family. He will absolutely soften for You, Lord. This is when I will see his consistent support financially. He will begin to tithe. He will begin to attend church again. His heart will lean towards You.
In October 2019, you will revive him. He will fall in love and say yes to you. He will be baptized then and be filled with your Spirit! You will breathe your Spirit into him and revive him with your Holy CPR. In the vision, the Lord stood before his body and actually blew on Chris. The Spirit filled his nostrils, his ears, his eyes, his mouth. It sunk into his pores and filled him with life. His body breathed.
Ezekiel 37:9-10 “Then he said to me, ‘Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.” So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet-a vast army.”
Revive means to restore to life or consciousness.
In late October and early November 2019, there will be breakthrough. Our relationship will come back to life and we will finally see each other in truth and love each other, as we each love the Lord. I will not idolize Chris. He will not have his adulterous desires anymore. We will love each other as we love and pursue You. We will pour into one another from the fullness of our love that is being poured out from You, Lord.
Breakthrough has several definitions. An act or instance of moving through or beyond an obstacle.
He will break through the obstacle of divorce. In the vision, it was the divorce, like a wall that came up between us, protecting me and the kids from him and the consequences of his sins. When he is ready, he will break through the wall and come back into our arms. He will be on the other side with us and with the Lord.
In that sense, I really like this other definition too. An offensive military assault that penetrates and carries beyond a defensive line.
And in January 2020 we will be restored. We will remarry. Restore defined is to give back or return. You, Lord, will return us to one another again. You will put us back into each others hands. You will restore the marriage.
Another definition is to bring back to or put back into a former or original state. Renew.
You will put our marriage back into its original state. We will love each other again. We will be married again. Our marriage will be restored as you promised. January 2020.
And we will be living out the fruition of this leap of faith that God has asked me to take by February 2020.
God, I am claiming these promises, right now and out loud. I claim victory. I know you will make these things all come to pass and I wait in anxious expectation. I am telling this mountain right now to jump and I expect it to. No more doubts or fear. You are victorious and I am victorious through Christ who paid the price and died for me. Amen
