2016: The Wind of God | John Kilpatrick [WATCH]
On December 27, 2015, I was on my back porch, and I casually looked out and saw the wind blowing gently out of the south. A moment later, I looked, and it was blowing out of the northeast. As soon as I saw that, I heard Holy Spirit say to me, “The wind has shifted.” I was immediately filled with such a strong unction that I left the back porch and went inside. My pen literally began to fly across my yellow legal pad. For over 2 hours, I wrote prophetic words and words of knowledge as fast as I could. It was literally a divine download that was a total surprise to me. I continued to receive more words in the days that followed. In total, there are 20 prophetic words and words of knowledge, both personal and for the nations, for 2016 and beyond.
I believe these words will relate to many people, and I trust they will minister to you. I also believe that they were not given to direct you, but to confirm things for you. I do not believe that all of these are specifically for the year 2016, as I received them with no timeline; although many of these will relate to this year. For some of you, these words may have already begun to come to pass. For others, you may begin to see them activate in the near future. Please feel free to contact our office with any testimonies regarding these words. I am looking forward to what the Lord has for His Church in the days ahead!
May God’s Best Blessings Rest Upon You,
John A. Kilpatrick
1. THE YEAR OF THE WIND
This year will be very unusual on many levels. As a matter of fact, a phrase will be repeated over and over on the lips of people of many nations. You will hear it said, “I have never seen anything like this before.” There will be a great stir among the people of the nations. Seemingly, nothing will remain normal any longer. This will not be just an American phenomenon, but it will touch all the continents.
• The Lord shall rise up and make Himself known.
• The forgotten shall shout for great joy.
• The heathen will see a great light.
• Unbelievers will take another look.
• Experts will be stumped.
• Nations shall be shaken, but kingdoms shall be jolted.
• Dead, dry bones will experience a fresh prophetic wind.
• Some will struggle with the question, “Is this God, or is this the devil?” But God will receive all the glory for His mysterious wonders.
• This will be the year of the winds of God, and those winds are already blowing even as I speak this word.
2. SAY GOODBYE TO THE PIG PEN
You are a victim of swine syndrome. Human swine have persecuted and mocked you openly because of your faith and love for God. These swine have trampled upon the pearls that Holy Spirit has formed in you. They have made your life miserable and very stressful, but the Lord says to you that He is taking you out of the hog pen and setting you up high on a perch. He will cause you to soar like an eagle. God has said, “Enough is enough!” There is such a change coming in your life that you will need time to adapt yourself to the many changes in store for you. You have been persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but you have surely survived. Now the Lord Himself shall reward you openly and cause His fragrance to grace your new space.
3. IN YOUR FACE
You have had such obstacles in your life. It has been as though you have experienced a contrary wind in your face hindering your every move. As a matter of fact, for many years, almost everything you have attempted has experienced setbacks! “In your face” is the phrase that best fits where you have been. Countless adversaries have been in your face withstanding you. At times, you have even tried to justify this contrary wind as possibly being sent from God; but you knew in your heart that was not true. Now, things have shifted, and what was once resistance to you has now moved behind you and is working for you, propelling you forward. Things are definitely changing from contrary to favorable. This favorable wind is timely for you in so many ways! The Lord has your back!
4. HEAVEN WIND
This shift in the wind will cause life-giving air to blow into the nostrils and mouths of your loved ones who have fainted. It will be somewhat like a supernatural oxygen mask. Even the backsliders and the lost, who have been slowly dying and have fallen by the wayside struggling to breathe, shall catch their breath. It is a fresh wind from Heaven. Those who are saturated with the cares of life and those who suffer dark depression, anxiety attacks and disturbed sleep shall finally find rest and relief. The Comforter has come! This wind bloweth where it listeth. As in the Upper Room, the Spirit was so anxious that He rushed. It was a rushing and a mighty wind! It will cover you and your loved ones like a warm comforter blanket. The Spirit sat upon each of them, and the Spirit will sit upon your sons, your daughters and others of your household. He will rush to you. As a matter of fact, He is rushing to you even now as you hear this. He is filling your lungs again with life-giving oxygen. Take a deep breath. It is even happening as I am giving this word! Breathe Him in… Holy Spirit is resuscitating and reviving you as I give this word. Hyperventilation and fearful breathing is subsiding and is giving way to peaceful and restful breathing. I declare sweet, peaceful sleep to come upon you even from this day forward. Peaceful rest has returned! He gives His beloved restful sleep.
5. FROM DROUGHT TO DRENCHING RAIN
(This is a word for the dry and famished ministers.)
A wind has already caused a 500-year drought to shift on the West Coast. Water has recently returned on a drought-stricken and parched land after years of no rain and desperate conditions. The shift started late in 2015. Not just long awaited showers, but now snow is falling—large amounts of snowpack are accumulating up on the mountains. The locals say it is the most snowpack in decades. Just as the famine has yielded, so will cold and dry hearts yield to the change of atmospheres. Showers will intensify into rain—rain bringing in the latter rain of My Spirit. You will not have to strive. It just simply will begin to rain. My rain shall come on the thirsty! I have heard the cries and groans for rain. I will make it to rain on the just and the unjust. Even the unsuspecting shall be taken back at My goodness to send this rain upon them. This rain will bring the familiar, as well as the unfamiliar. The wind has already shifted. You will smell My rain before you feel it. Whosoever will welcome this latter rain of My Spirit shall be revived, refreshed and renewed. Listen and you will hear an abundance of rain.
6. DELIVERANCE FROM WOMB WOUNDS
I am going to separate you from the chaff in your life. I will blow off of you the hindrances that have hindered you. For some time, I have been speaking to you regarding your addictions and habits that render you weak and ineffective. I will open your eyes to see what you could not see before. As Balaam was made aware of what was hindering his progress, you will also see and understand the endless delays and setbacks that have caused you such discouragement and heartache. I will unseat and uproot, by My Spirit, the things that have been upon you, even from the womb. Your deliverance shall come in one hour!
7. FORGIVE BUT RUN
You have been greatly misunderstood. Prevailing circumstances that are satanic in origin are so complicated that you have even wondered how could something so insignificant become so evil and complicated. This has cost you friends and family, and it has even begun to affect your health. But hear me, the Holy Spirit is moving on your behalf. This is finally coming to a close. The Lord Himself will bring closure. Although you went through a painful learning curve, you will now finally experience the new. But be cautioned… because you enjoy and seek the comfort of the familiar, do not fall into that trap again. You must forgive, release these adversaries and remove yourself from the very atmosphere where everything has been so distorted and tormenting. My Spirit will lead you to new places where there will be new faces, and you will learn to trust again. Your feet and legs will heal quickly from the scars of the trap that held you fast; but you must keep moving, and move quickly, because that trap will not remain open for very long. Be diligent; now is the time for your departure…
8. AN IMPOSSIBLE PREGNANCY
Mary had an impossible pregnancy. It was beyond impossible. Even the angel said it was impossible with man, but only possible with God. A virgin to conceive? There is nothing normal about that at all. Impossible… but God… I speak to you today, daughter, that your situation, likewise, is very complicated and impossible; but it is not beyond God. Your situation is totally in the realm of a miracle from God. Sometimes, miracles look like a mess at first, but they turn out to be a jaw dropper. I release you to believe in spite of it all. Against all odds, your faith will begin to stir, although you do not understand. You do not need to understand. I release a spirit of life to hover in your womb and for you and your husband’s bodies to become anointed to produce a baby. I declare it to be so!
9. LAUGH AT THE LOCUSTS
I am proclaiming that you indeed will have the money to retire and transition into the life you have desired for so long. You have worked and given to the Lord and His work. For a very long time, you have sacrificed, prayed and planned for this time of your life; and now, just as you are ready to step across the threshold into the new, a strange fear has gripped you! Grasshopper fear has made you afraid of your promised land. You feel threatened by the very things you have desired and worked so hard to accomplish. This swarm of dream-eating locusts appear to be so significant that your hope has faltered, and your plans have collapsed; but the Lord is saying that you will indeed realize your dream, and you will surely prevail! He will restore what the locusts have eaten. The Lord is a restorer! Fear not! All will be well. The Angel of the Lord will oversee this for you.
10. SUDDEN CHANGE OF PLANS
Someone has applied yourself. You have studied, gone to school, focused, labored, prepared and saved for a certain goal; but now, just as you are ready to be launched toward what you believed was your destiny… surprise! The Lord has suddenly rearranged everything. It actually is a divine intervention! Another door has opened—an unexpected door that you totally had not expected. You feel inadequate, and you feel unsure and insecure; but this is a moment in time for you. This has thrown your life, your plans and your preparations into a tailspin. The Lord has gone before you. The future He has planned for you is a good one. It is higher than the one you had planned. I hear opportunity knocking at the door. The question is, are you moving toward the door, or away from it?
11. THAT WHICH WAS, IS AGAIN
It is as though yesterday is now reappearing. Due to the complicated circumstances of yesteryear, it was not meant to be; but now, after all these years, here you are again. You are feeling the same feelings. You are coming alive again at the prospects of what could become a reality after all these years. This is your time. It was not wrong back then. It just was not time, and it was not the right season. But now, the time has come to look again. Extenuating circumstances are not the same now as they were then. This is a new beginning, only a later time. What was, is again!
12. RUNAWAY BRIDE
Your heart has always been soft for the Lord and for the work of God. You have felt a call upon your life; but something happened, and you have lost focus. Now, where you find yourself is that your feet are headed to the altar to marry, but your heart has turned in a different direction; and you are in the valley of decision! Follow your heart! The good is always the enemy to the best. There is always an Isaac for a Rebecca. Trust in the Lord and lean not unto your own understanding, and He will direct your paths. The love of your life is waiting for you, but it might not be the one waiting at that altar.
13. IT’S TIME TO GO HOME
You are in the music industry, and you are very well known. Your heart is broken, but so is your ex-wife’s. A long time ago, your feet were on a much different path; but then things began to change, and it was as though you stepped on a magical escalator. It took you higher and higher, yet further and further away from the people that love you the most. But it also took you far from your Lord that you have loved since a child. You have always loved the Lord, even in your most trying times. The Lord has plans for you, even now. A voice on the inside of you has been speaking lately, even as you sleep upon your bed. It is calling you to come home. But you say, “I can’t. I have strayed too far, and I have burned all my bridges." But there is still one bridge standing, and those that love you are there waiting for you just as the prodigal’s father waited patiently for his son. Listen to that voice; it is the Holy Spirit calling you off that escalator back to the familiar path that leads home. You must make the first move, and make it quickly. Listen! There is a voice calling you, “Come home!”
14. I’M COMING OUT
A loved one has you very concerned. A lying and delusional spirit entered their life and seduced them into a stupor of deception. You have felt so fearful and helpless because it has such a strong grip on their mind. Unstable behavior has resulted. It was through pride and a bitter root that this spirit entered. As a virus causes multiple complications, this continues to spread like a green bay tree. The time of this exile from reality has expired. God has declared, “Enough of this!” Effectual prayer and persistence have prevailed. As Nebuchadnezzar of old came to himself, so shall it be again. As surely as it entered, it will exit. Mercy will prevail. Humility is required!
15. NETS AND LINES
Jesus said to Simon Peter and his brothers, “I will make you fishers of men.” Jesus later gave Peter a word to go fishing and informed him that the first fish caught would contain a coin in its mouth that would be used to pay their tribute (taxes). It was supernatural provision that resulted from privileged information. Last Friday morning, as I was sound asleep, I heard Holy Spirit speaking directly to me. He said, “There are usually two ways that fish are caught—with a net and on a line.” I was so startled that I awoke immediately and looked at my clock. It was 5:55. Now awake, I heard the Lord continue. He said that there is coming a great international harvest of souls through “the net” (Internet) and “online.” He said that the Internet will light up as Holy Spirit accelerates His mighty wonders. He also said that “the net” and “lines” will bring tremendous and miraculous provision to God’s people because time is of the essence, and the waters are abundant for harvest. A new and very powerful wind of anointing will blow through the Internet. In real time, signs and wonders will be witnessed without edit. The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament will show forth His handiwork!
Footnote: The number five is the number of grace. The Holy Spirit is revealing to us that we are in a triple grace season. This is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes. I want everyone in this house, and especially those on “the net” and “online,” to give Him glory. Glorious days are indeed just ahead. Come on! Let’s give Him great and high praise! 2016 - “The Year of the Wind!”
16. THE DOWNFALL OF JEZEBEL
Jezebel will not leave on her own accord, but I, the Lord, will cause her to fall from her tower of power. Even as of late, you have wondered if anything could unseat her from her evil purposes. Her victims are many. She has come to her final chapter. I, the Lord, will not tolerate her subversive activities any longer! Deliverance has come!
17. THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT
The truth will finally surface. Truth that has been buried for many years will emerge into the light of day. Deception will finally end. Shame and dishonor will yield to facts. Others will learn the truth that you have known all along, and that truth will bring vindication.
18. DANGER ZONE
Something, or someone, has caught your eye. You have slowed down, and you are considering leaving the high road. There is an unfamiliar path that beckons you, but it is fraught with danger. This is a slippery slope, and it is not the way I have prepared for you. It is a path that leads to nowhere. The way that I have prepared for you is safe and well lit. It has signs and signals to guide you, markers to mark your progress and many to assist you along the way. There is a way that seems right, but this one is wrong!
19. HEALING HANDS
There is a proliferation of sickness, suffering and weakness. My people have mostly forsaken the laying on of hands and have neglected the Lord’s Table; therefore, there are many sick among you, and there is widespread weakness. I am sending a fresh wind of revelation upon My Church. I am raising up a company that are not only called, but chosen specifically, to bring renewed understanding of the Table of the Lord. They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover! Do not neglect so great a salvation!
20. NO MORE IMPOSTERS
Your past, your history, is replete with tremendous pain. You were a casualty of being unequally yoked to an imposter. You came to know a different person than the one you fell in love with, and the lights went out in your soul. Your heart, once tender, hardened to become extremely hard in an attempt to survive the abuses. It is difficult to emphasize your indescribable journey. You swore that you would never love or trust again. After all these years, you have recently begun to feel again. The chill of scarred emotions is now yielding to warm love. Your heart is being thawed out; even others recognize the change in you. I am healing you to love again. Now a certain someone has entered your life as a special gift just for you! I am giving you this word as confirmation that hope is not being deferred any longer. You are being swept off your feet in slow motion…
