Prophetic Word: Releasing Redemption in Dark Times

by | Feb 7, 2022 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

The year 2022 is here, and we are bearing witness to unprecedented shifts around the world. We are seeing an increase in disease, natural disasters, violence and war—all of which are tearing at the fabric of communities on a global scale.

We are also living in an unprecedented hour of prophetic fulfillment. The earth is crying out in intensified travail (both in the natural and the spiritual), as if preparing to give birth as Jesus foretold in Matthew 24. As children of God, we must stay steadfast and focused on truth as these birth pangs are released.

It’s Time to Be the Light

As we continue our journey into 2022, I feel there is prophetic significance to this year. The number 20 is often used in the Word to symbolize redemption. For example, in Exodus 30:11-14, the Lord instructed Moses that all Israelites, at the age of 20 years and older, give a ransom of half a shekel to the Lord to make atonement so that no plague would come upon them.

The number 20 also signifies a complete or perfect waiting period. In Judges 4-5, the children of Israel waited 20 years to be freed from Jabin (the king of Canaan) who oppressed them. God’s response was to raise up Deborah and Barak, who freed the people from bondage. In 1 Kings, Solomon spent seven years building the house of God in Jerusalem, and another 13 building his own home, for a total number of 20 years. After he had completed both buildings, Solomon gave Hiram (the king of Tyre) 20 cities in the land of Galilee.

The number 22 represents light to discern the time. There are 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet, which is the alphabet used to compose the Word of God. The Word of God is a lamp at our feet to guide our way (Ps. 119:105), revealing that these 22 Hebrew letters illuminate our path. The word “light” is also found 264 times in Scripture. If we divide 264 by 12 (the number which represents divine authority), we have 22.

From these prophetic insights about 2022, I believe the Lord is declaring that the waiting period is over, and He is releasing light upon His people to bring forth redemption to the nations. If there was ever a time to need the light of God to discern what is happening in the spirit, it’s now! As you know, in the absence of order, chaos erupts; in the absence of God’s light, darkness will prevail. God’s grace and light won’t ever be dimmed, as long as there is one light that shines bright like that of a city on a hill (Matt. 5:14).

It is time to not only walk in that light but to BE that light spoken of in Matthew 5:14! We are called to be light-bearers. Darkness has no authority over us. The crucifixion and death of Jesus spoken of in Matthew 27 is a beautiful reminder that when Jesus died, He broke ALL bonds with death, hell and the grave—for us all, for eternity! It is our inheritance as children of the light (1 Thess. 5:4-6) to dispel darkness in Jesus’ name—dispel it from our thoughts, our lives and the lives of those around us.

Are You Ready to Receive the Fullness of God’s Blessing and Favor?

We have lived through such intense, unprecedented times these past few years, leaving far too many saints feeling robbed of their lives and livelihoods. But God is saying that the hour to stand firm on the prophetic words He’s given you is NOW. I would like to encourage you: The Lord longs to restore ALL that has been stolen from you. The question is, are you ready to receive the fullness of that blessing? Do you believe in your heart that He wants to restore all that the locusts have stolen from you (Joel 2:25)?

Now is the time to realize/remember that we can redeem what the enemy has stolen from us! We can encounter the full blessing of God, regardless of our circumstances or what the world says, all because God says He will. And if He says He will, HE WILL! His Word is steadfast and true, and there is no darkness in Him.

It is also time to remember the inheritance we have as the saints. Some of you think that you have lost what God has ordained and called you to, but you haven’t. It may have been dormant but never lose your faith and trust in Him. Isaiah 22:22 talks about the keys of David, saying, “And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his (Eliakim’s) shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open” (KJV, emphasis added). Just like Eliakim, I’m telling you, God is giving us favor! He’s given us the key to unlock doors and gates in every city, every state and every nation around the world to set the captives free. It’s time; 2022 is our year!

Isaiah 66:6 (NASB) speaks about the Lord’s rebuke on hypocrisy, saying, “A sound of uproar from the city, a voice from the temple, the voice of the LORD who is dealing retribution to His enemies.” The perfect waiting period has passed, the Lord is illuminating the path, and as we speak, God is shaking things! He is shaking the nations; He is shaking the heavens; and He is shaking the world for the greatest revival we could only ever dream about.
