The year 2022 will see Christ the King rise in revelation glory in and through His saints. It will be an Isaiah 61 year as the harvest breaks free from its imprisonment to blindness and the year of the favor of the Lord breaks the saints free into the fullness of their call and destiny.
The world is about to experience what it means for the Lord to arise from His place to confuse and scatter His enemies. 2022 will be the beginning of a time of explosive movement, both in the spirit and in the natural, as kingdoms clash over the dominion of the Earth. These are days the saints have longed for, as we will see the power of God move in the miraculous through His people but will also stir the wrath of the hosts of wickedness, producing great turbulence in the Earth.
The saints living today are the generation—a Forerunner Party that tracks with Christ in the days moving forward. We are being invited to embrace the transcendent call on this generation of leaders to apprehend its scope through the prism of the apostolic/prophetic dynamic of this significant epoch of history. The Lord has put on my heart certain keys that must be in operation in our lives to be able to navigate our way through 2022, as so many prophetic voices are in unison that it will be a year of great shaking.
So, what does that shaking mean and what does that look like?
In the years ahead, we will be experiencing the effects of shaking in both the spiritual and the natural realms. The powers of the heavens are being shaken, producing turmoil, violence and great unrest in the Earth. In the natural, the shaking will cause storms, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, drought and famine. Shaking will also cause an earthquake in the leadership of all spheres—a changing of the guard in the political, economic and religious realms.
Now is the time to be found in the place where God is positioning you. There are very volatile regions in the United States and other nations where people should prayerfully seek the Lord if they should be moving to safer places of refuge. It is vital to world security that America stands strong and does not succumb to the tyranny of global powers. The Democratic Party has seized the opportunity in this time of emergency powers to surrender America to global actors under the guise of equity. They will not surrender the House, the Senate or the presidency and will do whatever it takes to keep power no matter how diabolical…wisdom is to be prepared and equipped for any sudden events, trusting in the Lord to guide us and holding fast to His Word.
“Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever. They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the LORD. Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes” (Ps. 112:6-8, NIV).
Repentance and Humility vs. Eating and Drinking
Isaiah chapter 22 provides us with prophetic insight for 2022. In this chapter, we see that God was very angry with Israel and was about to release sweeping judgments over the land. The leaders and the people did not understand or discern the times and what was about to come upon them. God was calling for national repentance for abandoning His ways and His Word, but they refused to hear or understand. As in the days of Noah, they were eating and drinking without any concern for their destiny or for eternity.
“The Lord, the LORD Almighty, called you on that day to weep and to wail, to tear out your hair and put on sackcloth. But see, there is joy and revelry, slaughtering of cattle and killing of sheep, eating of meat and drinking of wine! ‘Let us eat and drink,’ you say, ‘for tomorrow we die!'” (Isa. 22:12-13).
The issue of eating and drinking is highlighted many times in Scripture, directly relating to an attitude of the heart that is primarily concerned with satisfying the things of the flesh as opposed to the things of the Spirit and having eternal value. Paul quotes this very scripture in addressing the realities of eternal life and resurrection, as reasoning for endurance and perseverance through times of much persecution.
“If I fought wild beasts in Ephesus with no more than human hopes, what have I gained? If the dead are not raised, ‘let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die'” (1 Cor. 15:32).
Jesus also spoke into the complaint of the Pharisees over the issue of eating and drinking … read more of this prophetic word here.
