Prophetic Word for 2022: The Era of the Holy Spirit and the Year of Upgrade

by | Dec 20, 2021 | Blogs, God Encounters Today

Since 1999, the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders has gathered some of the most respected prophetic voices from around the nation (United States) to pray and seek the Lord for a word for the next year. The following article represents our collective prophetic word of the Lord for 2022.

It was 22 years ago that this group started meeting together. Though the composition of this group has changed much over the years, as many of the founders have graduated on to their heavenly reward, there yet remains a faithful core of the original group. There has been an addition of many new strong prophetic voices. Cindy Jacobs remains as the convener and senior leader with other generals at her side. I, James W. Goll, remain, as one of the founders alongside Bishop Bill Hamon and others.

It is our conviction that we are to function as an Acts 13:1-3 group. This passage notes that it was the Holy Spirit releasing a prophetic word to the group, as opposed to the exclusive word of any one prophet. So, it is the consensus of our ACPE members that the Holy Spirit is speaking the following prophetic words to us.

It’s important to understand that all prophetic words need to be bathed in intercession. Our response, through prayer, helps words of blessing to come to pass, and can diminish or even avert words of judgment.

It is also important to note that God often speaks in seasons as opposed to calendar years. Many of the words given in the past are still being fulfilled even now around the world. So, the following is an overview of the ACPE word of the Lord for the calendar year of 2022, which is 5782 in the Hebraic calendar, and beyond.

For the Lord says, “This is a season where the Holy Spirit is particularly active with many powerful manifestations of His glory.”

This word came out over and over in our ACPE prophetic council. The operative word is that God is releasing new waves of His power throughout the world.

The Glory Shakings

Many voices are prophesying shakings to come. Nations will be shaken. (See Hag. 2:6-7) This will result in a “glory shaking” or “glorious shaking” for the body of Christ. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken, but it will result in great glory for the kingdom of God. As the nations shake, many will come to Christ. There will be a great awakening from the great shaking, so do not be afraid in the midst of the shaking! God is using this shaking to realign nations. Trust God! In the last season, Satan was shaking the nations, but now God is going to do the shaking. This will result is a wealth transfer that can be used for the great harvest of the nations. Believe God to upgrade everything in your life during this time. Miracles upon miracles will manifest in the glorious shaking.

During this era of the Holy Spirit, many prodigals will come back to the Lord. We are backing the Turnaround Tuesday movement where the body of Christ fasts on Tuesday for the salvation of families and for prodigals to come home. God will also shake and prune the church to prepare to receive them, along with the great harvest. There will be a special emphasis in 2022 on the family. God is calling families to “build the family altar” in their homes and pray with and for their families. The blessing given in Genesis 22:17-18 is for us today that through our offspring all the nations of the earth will be blessed.

God will “shake until we awake.” These shakings will expose sexual sin in the church and corruption. When God gets ready to deal with nations, He always judges the church first.

The shakings can be likened to Ezekiel 37, where God spoke to the prophet to speak into the valley of dry bones. You may only see dry bones in your life now, but God is going to put your life into order and bring you into this great awakening that is happening. In the midst of the shakings, many will experience transitions. Be willing to let go of old traditions and move into the new without fear. This will help you get “unstuck” in your life.

Ephesians 6:13 admonishes us to take a stand against the things Satan is doing in our lives. As you choose to stand tall in the midst of the shakings, victory will be yours even during times of chaos and shakings.

The Nations Will Tremble

God is going to manifest His glorious self in a way that all will know that He is God. He is going to literally cause the nations to tremble before him. He is going to reveal Himself as the King of all kings, and the Lord of all lords.

The Technology Revolution

We are in the midst of one of the greatest revolutions since the industrial revolution. This revolution will be in the “unseen spaces” of the metaverse and web 3. Over the next few decades, the use of artificial intelligence and augmented reality, using at this point technology such as Oculus, will drastically change the world as we know it. The introduction of robotics into our everyday lives will take place.

God will give His people new ideas on how to create jobs and be on the cutting edge of developing jobs that will result in the promised transfer of wealth.

Generation Z will experience a movement of holiness. They will be so fervent before God that it will provoke the generations before them to join in with their consecration. New waves of technology will be used that will result in hundreds of thousands of genuine conversions through the use of social media, such as TikTok and other new innovative tools.

There are many new technological breakthroughs coming that will involve the metaverse and Web 3, as well as cryptocurrency. Believers will become students of such things, and God will begin to put Christians on the forerunning edge of these technologies.

There was an admonition not to demonize these new technologies. They are neutral in and of themselves. Even though there is potential to use them for evil, we need to understand how to use them for good for the gospel’s sake. The possibilities of using augmented reality for things such as training for surgery and so forth are many.

This technology revolution will produce a great decentralization of the way we have done things in the past. Many structures will experience a decentralization. It will be important to discern when God is causing the structures to decentralize as opposed to Satan trying to break up and scatter structures. This will involve the economies of nations as well. The way we buy and sell will dramatically change over the next few years on an even larger scale than it already has. God will raise up a young generation who are futurists, or are very prophetic in their abilities to function in the world of cryptocurrency, and great wealth will be created for the kingdom of God.

Time for the Daniels and Josephs

We have released words about God raising up Daniels and Josephs who will prosper in whatever political climates, as well as financial climates, may come in the future. There is going to be an increase in the efficiencies of Christian leaders to begin to partner together in the area of Venture Capital and partnerships in business.

The creative anointing will flourish through teamwork, and Isaiah 65:8 will be a theme as it declares, “The new wine is found in the cluster.” Teamwork will release dreamwork that will reveal visions on how to proceed in the future.

Christian statesmen and women will become what was likened to “ninja warriors” —bold and not ashamed. The same will be true for God’s sheep. They will be strong and unafraid.
