James Goll: 5 Prophetic Words for 2018
As we approach 2018, these are five clear prophetic words that I hear the voice of the Lord declaring. Join me in believing that we are moving from the Great Reformation to the beginning of the Great Transformation in the earth.
We have just shifted into the New Hebrew year 5778 and in the civil calendar we are headed into 2018. 5 is the number of “grace” and 7 is the number of completeness. 8 is the number of a new beginning. So, there is “grace to complete old tasks in order to proceed into the new things” that the Lord has for us. It is a season of shifting.
1) A Time When God’s Purposes Accelerate
It is a time when innovation arises within the church. The following is a review of a God encounter I had on the Day of Atonement.
On the Day of Atonement in the fall of 2017, I had a very intense and dramatic encounter. I heard the voice of the Lord thunder in my bedroom, “These are the beginning of the Days of Acceleration.”
akˌseləˈrāSH(ə)n | noun: a vehicle’s capacity to gain speed within a short time: a Formula One car is superior to an Indy car in its acceleration. Increase in the rate or speed of something: the acceleration of the industrialization process PHYSICS: the rate of change of velocity per unit of time.
Deuteronomy 28:1-2 – The Promise and the Condition
“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God…”
Jeremiah 1:9-12 – It’s Time to Build!
“Then the LORD put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me: ‘Behold, I have put my words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant.’ Moreover, the word of the LORD came to me, saying, ‘Jeremiah, what do you see?’ And I said, ‘I see a branch of an almond tree,’ Then the LORD said to me, ‘You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.’”
Yes, these are the Beginning of the Days of Acceleration. What took ten years to do could take one year. It is a time when God’s purposes swiftly move forward. But there are always conditions that must be met. We must align with the Word of God and character to carry the gift. Let’s pray together that God brings His Acceleration into our lives so that His purposes come forth swiftly!
2) A Time When a New Prophetic Language Will Be Developed
In order to reach the New Fields of Harvest, it is essential that a new prophetic language be developed to reach different groups of people.
It is Time:
- When New Wineskins are created to carry the New Wine
- When a new sound creates a new voice that can be heard in new arenas
- When the Prophetic Movement is aligned to speak from a Kingdom Posture
- When Prophets give Words to Kings
- When the Voice and Activity of Healing is second nature
This is not a watering down of the content—it is building bridges to carry cargo. There is a great SHIFT—in places where the Marketplace has supported the church, the church instead will support the marketplace.
Daniels are made in Babylon—he was the answer to the problems in his day. We are not the alternative—we are the answer. We are not just called to solve problems; like Daniel we are to carry wisdom to impact government and every sphere of society.
