A Word for This Year

One week ago today I got a word from the Lord. The word was a scripture verse which I heard, when last Saturday, I watched a recorded message from June 2017. I thought it was odd at the time but I know when Holy Spirit is speaking to me. It was a specific word. The Lord said to me:

Listen up! This verse, just as this man read it, with this wording of this version, is a word for this year. Mark this! This is what I am doing This year!

Before I tell you what the verse is let me tell you how this played out.


How many people watched Glory of Zion’s Head of the Year Conference? I subscribe to GZI TV, there is a wealth of riches in every message. If you haven’t signed up for it, now is a good time. It’s been years since I have been able to do every session of an entire conference. This year, however, I really felt led to watch every session. Screen Shot 2019-09-29 at 11.18.00 AMAnd it was amazing!!! There is way too much to share in one blog post what all was released through the Conference. If you are familiar with Glory of Zion you know what I mean. All I can say is that it is worth the cost to sign up for access, to all their online resources – Just 9.99 a month. Okay, enough for the commercial. Here’s where I’m going with this.

I had an experience on Thursday evening at the very onset of the conference that is worth sharing. The first speaker lined up at 8PM on Thursday, September 26th was Dutch Sheets. I like Dutch. 180733I have followed his teachings since he came out with his first book in 1996, on prayer. He always has a word from the Lord for the year. He carries the anointing and authority of  an apostolic mantle. Anyway, I tuned in with great expectation. I was not however ready for what happened as he read one very particular verse of scripture. I’ll get to the particular scripture in a minute but it’s important to relay why when he shared it that I was so strongly impacted. I was impacted because just spoke out the verse the Lord gave me the word about on that prior Saturday.

Here’s what led up to this amazing moment.

Screen Shot 2019-09-29 at 11.55.52 AMThe Saturday prior to the conference, September 21st I logged in on GZI TV to stream something. This was completely random. I have a couple of favorite ministries I will turn to when I want to hear an anointed message. I randomly picked Glory of Zion. And I randomly picked one session out of hundreds to choose from. It just happened to be session 4 from their 2017 Kingdom of God Advancing Conference. The speaker was Tim Sheets, brother of Dutch Sheets. I had never heard Tim speak before which was why I chose that particular one.

As Tim began to speak the first thing he did was share a particular scripture. As soon as he read the verse the Holy Spirit spoke to me to pause the video and get ready to write something down. So I did. Here’s what the Lord told me to write down.

Listen up! This verse, just as this man read it, with this wording of this version, is a word for this year. Mark this! This is what I am doing This year!

The verse was Amos 9:13 from The Message

“Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills.”

On Saturday, the 21st of September I wrote down what God told me to write down. The anointing which accompanied this word was heavy on me. The Holy Spirit was all over this verse. At first I thought it was just about me personally. Now, remember the message Tim Sheets delivered at the Kingdom of God Advancing Conference was in June 2017. And while these men happen to be brothers neither of them had any idea that I had just  watched Tim Sheets on Saturday the 21st.

But then, you guessed it. On Thursday the 26th, just four days later, at the very first session of the Head of the Year Conference at Glory of Zion, Dutch Sheets. gets up and the very first thing he does is he reads Amos 9:13 from The Message.

I didn’t set this up. I didn’t know what Tim Sheets preached on two and half years ago. I had no idea what message Dutch would give now, two and half years later. You can’t make this stuff up. This was totally Holy Ghost orchestrated. Because of the way this happened back to back, and the verse delivered by brothers was highly impacting. It wasn’t just that they happened to share the same verse. I was interrupted by Holy Spirit on Saturday, four days before Dutch was going to deliver his message in Texas. God interrupted my mundane routine. He inserted Himself and said THIS IS A WORD FOR THIS YEAR.

 

We need to get that. I don’t have a public ministry platform (except my blog). I’m a simple old woman who happens to hear from God on occasion. I am not connected with any of these men in any other way other than I happened to watch these messages online in the same week. THIS WEEK. This week leading up to 5780 which happens to begin tomorrow, Sunday, September 30, 2019.

…one thing fast on the heels of the other…

Let me just relay something I find hysterical. I also love God’s inside jokes. He does things that we have to look deeper in order to really get the significance.

It occurred to me that the Lord said, this man. So I asked myself, what is the significance of this man?

So I decided to look up the significance of the surname Sheets. Seems its an old Norse name meaning Swift. Yeah, let that sink in! Both times I heard this verse, from this man… which man? The  SWIFT man!!!!!

And in case we aren’t done with God’s subtleties. Here’s another one that we have to go back nine years to connect.

My last trip to Glory of Zion was July of 2010. I’ve been there a couple of times over the years but that was the last trip I made. At that time I kept getting the word SWIFT. This word SWIFT went with a word from the Lord,

“When IT happens it will happen quickly. Swiftly things will come together. So fast your head will swim.” 

Don’t ask me what IT is, He didn’t say. And you prophetic people know how it is when God gives you something. You start seeing indicators; things in the natural that line up with what God is saying to you. I saw SWIFT trucks everywhere. SWIFT Transportation is an American based international truckload shipping carrier. TRUCKS CARRY SUPPLIES. Somewhere on the road trip back to Illinois from Texas we noticed a train running parallel to the highway. The train was one of those really really long trains. EVERY FLATBED CAR ON THE TRAIN CARRIED TWO SWIFT TRUCK TRAILERS. Oh, you’re not getting it yet.

Here’s the connection. This was directly connected with my trip to Glory of Zion. It was on the road leading to my home from Zion when I saw this entire train, car after car after car. Each train car carrying TWO SWIFTS. They weren’t just coupled together. They were two truck trailers on one flatbed car. That Swift train was a sign. I knew at the time it was a sign. The significance of the two trucks on one flatbed was a sign. BUT I didn’t know what the sign was until now. That was nine years ago.

“When IT happens it will happen quickly. Swiftly things will come together. So fast your head will swim.”

Amos 9:13 MSG – “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills.”

This is a word for this year. I don’t believe it is just for me personally. I believe this is a word for the body of Christ. But it doesn’t end there. This message is connected with Zion. The truck loads carrying supplies are coming from Zion.

Here’s what Psalm 20 has to say about Zion from The Message.

1-4 God answer you on the day you crash, The name God-of-Jacob put you out of harm’s reach, Send reinforcements from Holy Hill, Dispatch from Zion fresh supplies, Exclaim over your offerings, Celebrate your sacrifices, Give you what your heart desires, Accomplish your plans. 5 When you win, we plan to raise the roof and lead the parade with our banners. May all your wishes come true! 6 That clinches it—help’s coming, an answer’s on the way, everything’s going to work out.

Are you seeing the picture coming together? Can you see what God is getting ready to do?

God is sending all the supplies you are going to need. It’s a whole fresh supply coming straight from His sanctuary.

The Swift trucks, represent the dispatching of fresh supplies. A WHOLE TRAIN LOAD OF SUPPLIES. God is sending help from His sanctuary. (Ps 20:2 NASB)

The Fresh Supplies of Amos 9:13 are coming. It’s going to come so fast your head is going to swim. God is bringing supplies directly from His presence.

We are going to see a great increase in angelic activity this year. It’s been increasing before but not like now. Now it’s going to come swiftly like a fast moving train. King Jesus is answering our call for help. He has heard the voice of the intercessors and He is responding. He has heard the apostolic and prophetic declarations and He is backing up His Word. He is sending the supplies which are needed in this hour. He is sending all the angelic assistance needed. He is sending provision. He is sending all the retinue, conveyances and equipment needed to accomplish all that God has planned for His people this year.

“Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills.” The Message – Amos 9:13

WE’RE NOT DONE YET!!!

These men don’t just represent the swiftness of God’s blessing that is coming.

The name Timothy means to honor God. This is a message which honors God.

John 15:8 NLT – “When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father.

When we are blessed with producing much fruit is brings glory to the Father.

But wait, there’s more.

When I think of the Dutch, a windmill comes to mind. The Dutch are famous for their windmills. Windmills create energy generated by wind and are used to turn raw material and it pounds, mauls, shreds, hacks or mixes it until it is made into some kind of usable form. Windmills didn’t just produce usable material. The sails were used to convey messages, like deaths, marriages, or other important and sometimes urgent messages. During WWII the sail signals were used to warn locals of impending Nazi raids.

I believe it is a message of great importance which brings honor to God and blessing to the people of God.

“Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree. “Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills.”
