Word for 2009
Apostle and Prophet Jeanita L. Sykes
Let he who hath an ear Hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying:
The Lord gave me a vision a couple of weeks ago. I saw a map of the United States/North America; however, on this map there where no borders signifying the division of states, nor was there any boundary between Canada and America, nor Mexico and America. Also, in this vision was a woman, a messenger of the Lord God; she told me that the United States is a ‘Continent’ specifically known as the ‘Northern Continent’ not the USA.
Then I saw Barak Obama traveling all across the country meeting with various labor force and other leaders to address the issues within our economy. The general appearance of those who met with him was a sense of importance, acceptance and assurance not only is something going to change, but they are a part of that change. Simultaneously, I knew in the spirit that he (Barak) and the other leaders of the country and world were working on the revealing of the North American Union (Continent). He also knows and considers that the US is already the Northern Continent. It shall be revealed.
The Lord immediately began to give me the word concerning the vision and the Church. Hear what the Lord says concerning the coming year, 2009 and beyond:
“Judgment is coming”, says the Lord. For He says, “I have given a space of repentance-True Repentance.” For the Lord God says: “Be not deceived, for I search the reigns of the hearts of men and although you seem righteous in your own eyes you are wicked and naked!”
Jer 17:9 “The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
Rev 3:17 “Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked...”
“There is a short space of time in 2009 for repentance”, says the Lord, “then I shall begin to expose the workers of iniquity and cut them off from my house!”
Ez 18:30 “Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn [yourselves] from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.”
I saw a vision of a ravishing wolf facing a Lamb crowned with gold and jewels...
The Lord said, “This represents the false Sheppards and Prophets who have, up until now, been allowed to plunder my house. The Lamb of course, represents Christ Jesus, as He is manifested in His True Holy Apostles, Prophets and Sheppards that are rising up in this hour.”
This is the beginning of an ensuing war in the spirit that the True Apostles and Prophets are raging against the beast in the Church. This is the year that the ‘Birthing’ of ministries, truly ordained by God, shall come forth! This is the year that those that were waiting in the desert, shall come forth with all the Power, Authority, and Grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This is the year of Birthing True Deliverance in the Earth! Many shall come to see the Kingdom of God by astonishing numbers world wide! These instruments of God shall ‘expose’ the enemy in the lives of believers, and cut out and destroy every idol. This is also the year of the Jehosephat anointing to be manifested! Three kings shall go forth. Hear we see teams coming together, and with the anointing of king priests, they shall utterly destroy the enemies of the Church.
Isa 41:15 “Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat [them] small, and shalt make the hills as chaff.
Although the economy is frail currently, the Lord says that He shall provide for His people just as he did for Israel in the wilderness. “The Nation shall see that you are blessed and are the chosen ones of the Lord God of Abraham.”
“For I,” says the Lord, “keep covenant to a thousand generations. Though pestilence comes at the door it shall not plague thee says the Lord your God!”
The economy will recover. But the Nation shall not be in the same economic status as it has been before. The Lord is causing her to be drained. Temporarily at the union of the ‘continent’, shall the economy and nation begin to strengthen, but this is because of the power of the enemy behind her.
We will begin to see in the next year the unveiling of the Nations uniting and the systems joining. “The beast is rising and that which was spoken is coming to past,” says the Lord.
“Now is the time for the Church to watch and pray. Not a time to drink and make merry. Be not deceived- you will have tribulation! But I the Lord God shall be with you in trouble to deliver you.” says the Lord.
To the Church at Africa, Hear what the Spirit of the Lord says:
The Lord says, “The Church and Prophets must watch. For the enemy is trying to infiltrate the Church at Africa.” There is a corruption in Africa that the Lord says He is going to ‘pluck out’! The Lord also says that Africa is not cursed, but BLESSED - Blessed among Nations! The fervent prayers of Africa fills His Throne Room and He is well pleased. The Lord says to Africa, “I will send rain – I will send you relief. For you have proven faithful and have sought my face diligently.”
There will be a peace come upon the nation of Africa and it will be by His Spirit says the Lord God. God loves Africa and shall deliver her out of trouble.
The Lord God Almighty says that there is a special blessing attached to Africa, that those who see to bless and assist Africa shall be blessed abundantly!
The Lord says, “Be careful however of who you connect with” be led by His Spirit and you shall see the Hand of God move mightily on your behalf.
This is the year of more signs and wonders for you Africa!!! The birthing of Africa before nations...for the anointing of Joseph is upon you Africa, where the nations will come before you and receive a blessing!
Isaiah 61:1 “Arise, shine for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.”
Isaiah 61:15 “Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.”
To the Churches in India and Pakistan, hear what the Spirit of the Lord says:
“The Gospel is being preached. Yea, though you are under great persecution, continue to be faithful and strong says the Lord your God for thine reward is great!”
The next year will be a year of great increase in the Church and the Lord shall elevate the Church to new dimensions prophetically and revelatory.
There will be a peace come among you in the next coming 2 years that will give a space for repentance for the nation. During this open space the Gospel will be preached and you shall be opened for great increase says the Lord your God.
“I”, says the Lord, “shall enlarge you and continue to be your strength and refuge.”
Ps 9:9 “The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.”
To all the brethren, hear what the Spirit of the Lord says:
“An evil is rising in China” says the Lord. The brethren are under great persecution and more will come, we, the Body of Christ are called to intercede for our brethren in China this coming year. Pray fervently for China, for there is much blood shed and fear amongst the believers. We are to pray for the governmental gates of China to be opened that the King of Glory comes in!!! (Psalm 24:7)We are to pray for peace and that our brethren be strengthened by the Spirit of the Lord!
“Be not discouraged in this hour” says the Lord. “For I, the Lord your God shall deliver you in the hour of trouble. I shall be with you in the midst of your trials and tribulation, though trouble surpass you, I will deliver you out of the hands of your enemies says the Lord your God! Faint not in this hour for thine reward is great”, says the Lord. “You, who are faithful, shall reap in season the goodness of the Lord, for the Land of Promise is yours.”
Matt 5:12 “Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great [is] your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Furthermore, the Lord spoke to His faithful servants:
Isaiah 66:9 “Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut [the womb]? saith thy God.”
“This is the year of birthing...birthing of visions, purpose and destiny – of the KINGDOM!!! In times past ye have been in pain, yet have brought forth wind. Your visions have come to naught, the enemy has been there to steal, kill and destroy. But I say this day that I shall cause the enemy to be consumed by the very thing that was meant to stop you!”
“This is the yea that I the Lord God shall uncover the enemy in you life – that they shall be utterly confounded. I have release my judgment on those who have oppressed you and on those who have hindered you”, says the Lord.
“Therefore – allow that which is to come, to come forth this season. For now is the time for your destiny, your seed to be manifested in your life,” says the Lord your God.
“Be of good cheer and fear not for I the Lord your God am on your side.”
Ex 23:23 “For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off.”
