Much has been prophesied of this year. It is without a doubt an altering year for the world as we see the political head winds blow with fierceness in our nation and the nations of the world, and the economical climate of the world continues to change with greater acceleration. But what of the church? The church globally is a nation of believers and the church locally is a community of believers. And as with any nation or community you have a governing order that sustains the prosperity and growth of that particular group. When the Lord spoke to me prophetically concerning 2012 the initial word that He spoke into my spirit was that this would be the year of two governments. This would be the year that the government of His Kingdom would be defined in the earth and the government of this world would be defined. The laws which govern these two governments are in direct opposition to each other. One will provide order while the other creates chaos. One is a government of liberty, justice and righteousness while the other is a government of bondage, greed and lawlessness. One will become the foundation of truth in the earth that liberates, and the other will be the sinking sand of deception that propagates fear to control. One will be conduit of the Holy Spirit that reveals Christ as the King of kings while the other becomes the conduit of the spirit of the anti-Christ who determines itself as the supreme order in the earth.
This is the year that the Holy Spirit is reintroduced as the person of God’s power, presence, and providence living in and manifesting through His people. And the year the church of God is restored as a viable functioning body in the earth with Christ as head. The institution of man made religion that has sought to usurp the authority of Christ and become the ruling throne of power over His people will stand in opposition to the resurrection of the true church. This as it aligns itself with the world system. Let me add however that one must refrain from identifying this religious order as any one particular denomination or religious sect as it will encompass many denominations. Careful even the elect will be deceived. This will be the course taken by those who have sought to build kingdoms within God’s Kingdom and will fight to keep it at all costs. This is a season in which the church must return to the core values of its conception; the values of fellowship, the word and prayer. The church must represent a counter culture to the prevailing world culture and not become simply a subculture that co-exists in the earth.
