2011 Prophetic Perspectives

by | Jan 27, 2011 | Blogs, Prophetic Insight

hankkunnemanNote from the author: As you read through
these prophetic perspectives, know that they are exactly that—my
perspective. While most of them are based on prophecies I have spoken,
these perspectives in themselves are not prophecies. Again, they are
simply my perspective on prophetic events.

It is not generally my nature to attempt to find prophetic
meanings from every event or to pull meanings from names, numbers or other
symbols. We could probably find a spiritual meaning in anything if we
tried hard enough. My intention is only to point out perspectives from a
few key events of the past year that coincide with things God is already
voicing worldwide.

Some such perspectives do in fact deal with names, numbers
or symbolisms but are limited only in order to provide confirming support to
the larger and more significant prophetic words. In the end, however, prophecy
and prophetic events are often conditional and, more important, need to be
coupled with prayer in order to be balanced and effective.

Note: What is written here is not
an actual prophecy unless stated as such. 

My greatest desire is that we create a platform for God’s
true prophets to speak and share the pulse of God while the listeners handle
what they hear with grace, accuracy and godly wisdom. As a helpful tool, I
want to recommend that you read my book Revealer of Secrets. It is a
prophetic handbook with guidelines and boundaries for operating in the
prophetic. It teaches how to accurately interpret prophecy, and also shows
the difference between true and false prophets.

I pray these prophetic perspectives bless your life and help
you become a more effective tool in God’s Kingdom!

2010: YEAR IN
REVIEW

This is not just about a year but also about this decade,
2010-2020. Some things prophesied last year are still coming to pass as we
move through the current decade. God’s prophetic purpose that is still coming
to pass and will continue in 2011 include:

  • The youth will be anointed and arise
    affecting this generation for the Lord
  • The Baby Boomer generation will
    experience salvation and revival
  • The blizzards, weather elements and
    record temperatures are a sign to this nation
  • The earth and the elements are
    responding to God’s glory
  • Winds of change are blowing—legislation
    will change

 

2011 PERSPECTIVES

DISORDER AND TRANSTION

This will be a year when we will see both
disorder and transition occurring. America will face some of its greatest
challenges as political disorder continues. It will lead to a shake-up and
transition of power. What seems like political chaos will lead to a change
and shaking of political power leading up to 2016.

We will see the
unveiling of new leaders to replace those who we will see the beginning process
of their removal. Look for disorder in the economy, weather
and both the cultural and political arenas. It will mark a transition of
the Lord’s people into a season of divine separation and favor. 

It
will be similar to the days of Egypt when God separated His people from those
of the world. They were spared from the plagues and disorder of Egypt, yet
God used the chaos in Egypt in order to transition Israel into their promised
inheritance: “That you may know how that the Lord does make a difference
between the Egyptians and Israel. … And I will make a difference between My
people and your people. Tomorrow this sign shall be” (Ex. 8:23; 11:7).

Biblically speaking,
the number “11” marks disorder, disorganization, imperfection and
even disintegration. It also speaks of transition.

Perspectives from Scripture
applicable to the 2011 disorder and transition

Jesus established 12
apostles, but after Judas’ death there were only 11. The missing apostle
was a picture of something in disorder until a new leader was chosen in Acts
1. Perspective: The disorder in 2011 will ultimately result in some
untimely removals from office in the political landscape. This will open the
way for a transition into new political leadership.

Jesus tells of the
workers standing idle who were hired at the 11th hour (see Matt. 20: 6, 9).
Their standing idle at the 11th hour speaks of disorder, in that they weren’t
being effective. Perspective: Many Christians in America have been
“standing idle” rather than praying. This disorder from a lack of prayer
will lead to further disorders in 2011 for a season.

Jacob had 12 sons,
but while Joseph was in Egypt, they were not in order together; only 11
remained. The family was incomplete. In essence, the family had
disintegrated from what it once was: “We are twelve brothers, sons of
our father; one is no more, and the youngest with our father this day in the
land of Canaan” (Gen. 42:32). 

This season of
disorder and famine transitioned Jacob’s family into blessing under
Joseph. Then there was another season of disorder for Israel after Joseph
died, but the disorder again transitioned them under new leadership in
Moses. Perspective: Things that have been established will disintegrate
creating a time of disorder, but it will transition the nation into a future
season of blessing under different leadership.


THE PRESIDENCY WEIGHS IN THE BALANCE

The presidency
weighs in the balance, meaning the seat of power is contingent on choices of
the president, the nation and also the church. God is watching to see who
will turn to Him and how Israel is being handled. Key signs will reveal
which direction God’s hand is leaning.

In 2010 a window was opened and God reached toward our president and is waiting for him to reach
back. A window is open as God waits to see what our president will do
regarding the Lord.

In 2011 a window of vulnerability has been opened. The devil is coiled to strike against
governmental leaders and the office of the president similar to those who
coiled to harm past presidents and leaders. The demonic powers aim to
remove a leader in effort to create disorder, corruption and
chaos. Idleness, complaining, bitterness, and lack of prayer for this
nation and its leaders have caused this window of vulnerability. In this
season, we must pray so we can close the window against the enemy and not fall
prey to him. We must not be vulnerable but alert, watchful, and prayerful
to close this window and in turn open a window of safety, protection and a
spiritual awakening.

Events that point to the presidency

Certain recent, 2010
events appeared as indicators that God’s hand is shifting, again pointing back
to disorder and transition. These events represent momentary disorder
leading to change in the political landscape for 2012.

Rahm Emanuel, the
top political adviser to the president, leaves his post.
His name, Emanuel, is derived from the Hebrew
word Immanuel, which means “God with us.” The name Rahm means
“pleasing” or “supreme.” His name essentially means, “pleasing God with
us.” God’s blessing on the nation and presidency is a must. Perspective: The
departure of this key political adviser points to the fact that God is not
pleased and His presence in the White House has shifted.

The Presidential
Seal falls.
 President
Obama’s presidential seal, representing his authority of office, fell off the
podium on Oct. 5 as he was speaking at a summit. It was Fortune magazine’s Most Powerful Women’s Summit, which has prophetic
significance because God is increasing the influence of women.

“In that day,” says the LORD of hosts, “the
peg that is fastened in the secure place will be removed and be cut down and
fall, and the burden that was on it will be cut off; for the Lord has spoken” (Is. 22:25). Perspective: The
falling seal points to a falling place of authority and a political disorder
coming. 

 

EXPOSURE OF POLITICAL CORRUPTION

Political corruption
will be exposed as God sheds light over Washington, D.C., causing some to speak
of what appears as another Watergate-type scandal, which consisted of internal
exposure and betrayal. It revealed hidden disorder, which again created a
transitional season. 2011 will mark a distinct season of exposure. Hidden
things will come to light, especially within the ranks of the political and
national figures.

 

THE SEASON FOR WOMEN

We are in the season
that women will lead nations and hold seats of government. Other nations,
Argentina, Brazil and Chile, have had female presidents, and America will have
one in a selected time. A woman is being prepared, but is not yet ready to be
seated as president. There is a spiritual battle over the Lord’s
choice. God has placed His blessing on the woman of His choosing to
accomplish key things for both this nation and for Him. God is preparing
one, but the devil will seek to interrupt and seat another who has the spirit
of Jezebel instead.

 Perspectives from
Scripture applicable to 2011, the season for women

It was a woman who
crushed the head of a wicked king with a stone (see Judg. 9:53). Perspective:
This speaks of a change of power and the influence of women in positions of
political leadership who will lead against wicked laws. 

It was a woman who
rescued baby Moses in the days of Pharaoh when the murder of children was
endorsed by the government (see Ex. 2). Perspective: A woman
is being prepared as a protective mother figure in an effort to end the
murdering of children by abortion.

It was a woman
(Deborah) who led a battle against the enemies of Israel and ended a war
against them that came because Israel was choosing new gods. Deborah brought
God’s principles back to Israel (see Judg. 5:2-8). Perspective: A woman
is positioned in America to end certain wars in the east and bring this nation
back to certain moral and biblical principles.

 

THE SIGNS OF THE WIND

Strong and unusual winds blew across this nation in much of
2010, signifying a prophetic shift and spiritual change coming upon the
land. Unusual winds will continue to blow in 2011.

Political wind of change

The winds shall
serve as a sign that winds of change are coming to laws that have been
previously signed. Involved will be healthcare, same-sex marriage, and
others that will be changed, some toward righteousness and some toward
unrighteousness.

Economic change

The winds of change
will affect the financial and economic status in America. 2011 yields a few
more financial “hiccups,” but it will begin to steady. Silver and gold
will rise in value. Talk of a new currency will receive great discussion as a
weathering of the financial storms continues for a season. Gas prices creep up
then drop quickly. New technology, alternate energy, and discoveries stimulate
and recharge the nation as inflation rises.

God’s redemptive plan in the wind

Strong winds and
storms continue to blow, as many weather elements will speak of God’s
redemptive plans. Record heat, cold, winds and hailstones reported will point
to a season of change. Old things will pass away and new things will be
re-established. All is purposed to fulfill God’s redemptive plan in the
earth.

 

A REVIVAL OF PRAYER AND SALVATION

This year requires a
renewed fervor for prayer, as it was during the terms of President Clinton and
President Bush. 

The waters of Marah

We must be wise in
how we speak, in what we say, and in our heart attitude toward our leaders and
the events in our nation. God is looking at our hearts and what we are
speaking in 2011. He did this with Israel after they had just witnessed God’s
power in the drowning of Pharaoh and his armies. Three days later they were
taken to the bitter waters of Marah. 

The word Marah
means “bitter” in the Hebrew. At the waters of Marah, Israel
began to complain. It reveals how hearts can become bitter and complain
during a crisis. With this in mind, we must not complain and become bitter
against God in that same way, as we are facing challenges in the earth.

A call to prayer

The church is once
again being summoned to prayer for our leaders, our nation and our
government. The complaining has exceeded the prayer, and this created the
window of vulnerability. 

Household salvations

Members of
households will be saved in greater numbers and through unusual
ways. Those who have resisted before will have a change of heart, as
entire families experience salvation.

A stirring for the lost

The Lord is looking
for laborers who will win the lost for Him. There will be a renewed
passion in the body of Christ for the salvation of lost souls. The Lord
will reward churches, leaders and Christians who reach the lost.

Salvation in Hollywood, Sports

Hollywood and the
sports world will experience more unfortunate shakeups, tragedies and even
untimely deaths. This will cause such a stir and scrambling to grasp onto what
is sure. As a result, many will turn to Christ. A renewed vocal boldness of
their faith will come from those we never thought would speak out. It will be a
season of salvations, and some in both Hollywood and the sports world will
honor Christ in a greater way.
