WORD OF THE LORD 2020. THE YEAR OF THE PROPHETS

February 4, 2020
BY BISH0P BILL HAMON

2020: BEGINNING OF THE DECADE OF THE PROPHETS PROCLAIMING AND PROTECTING!

Prophets’ words bring supernatural victory! “Believe in the Lord your God and you shall be established: believe and remain steadfast to God’s Prophets and you shall prosper” (2Chr.20:20 AMP). King Jehoshaphat and Judah won a great victory by acting on the word of the prophet. The spoil from the dead armies brought great prosperity, peace and all nations feared them after God fought for Judah. Prophet Isaiah prophesied the defeat of the Assyrians war against Judah, and God sent one of His war angels who killed 185,000 Assyrian soldiers in one night. “By a Prophet the Lord brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a Prophet Israel was preserved.” Hosea 12:13. Prophets guide and protect God’s people by revealing the thoughts, purposes, timing and personal Word of God and ministering His mighty power to them and their situation.

2020: THE HEBREW CALENDAR YEAR IS 5780 WHICH IS CALLED “PEH” WHICH MEANS “MOUTH.”

It is the 17th letter of the Jewish Alphabet and symbolizes victory. It is the Mouth of the Prophet that the personal and national word of the Lord is proclaimed. God spoke to Prophet Moses, “Go and I will be with your Mouth and teach you what you shall say” (Ex.4:12). God declared to Prophet Jeremiah, “Behold, I have touched your Mouth and put my words in your Mouth” ( Jer.1:9). This is the decade of the Company of Prophets being the Mouth of the Lord, speaking God’s directive to individuals and nations.

2020: ONLY EVERY 100 YEARS DO THE DOUBLE NUMBERS APPEAR—1818, 1919, 2020.

For God’s prophetic people, it will be a double portion year (Is.61:7). It will be a year of new beginnings. New times and purposes of God will be launched. Not just another year but a Kairos year. A pivotal year when the battle between right and wrong will become more intense, and groups and nations swing more to wickedness or righteousness, light or darkness. They’ll become either more like the anti-Christ or the Body of Christ. Churches will become like the Laodicean, lukewarm, passive church or the victorious, supernatural, presenttruth, warrior church demonstrating the kingdom of God in every nation for a witness that there is only one true Almighty God, Jesus Christ Lord of Heaven and Earth (Mt.24:14; Dan.4:1-35).

2020: WE ARE MOVING INTO THE SECOND LEVEL OF GOD’S PURPOSE FOR HIS PROPHETS IN THE 21ST CENTURY.

The restoration movement of 1948 was the .rst to start teaching that prophets are to currently be active in the Church. In 1986 I published the book Prophet & Personal Prophecy, which revealed the restoration of prophets and the great Company of Prophets that God was raising up to make ready a people and prepare the way for Christ's second coming as the Prophet John the Baptist did for Christ’s .rst coming.

In 1987 Christian International conducted the .rst ever International Gathering of Prophets Conference. ln that conference the saints went into 45 minutes of deep, intercessory prayer for the birthing of the Company of Prophets. In the 1988 CI Prophets Conference, there was a sovereign move of God that birthed the Prophetic Movement (the details are given in “Prophets & Prophetic Movement” pages 94-100, 105.) The .rst level/phase of the Prophets and prophetic ministry is described in Ezekiel 37:1-8. It was noised abroad and they came together into di.erent prophetic networks. The second level/wave of God’s purpose for the restoration of Prophets is described in Ezekiel 37:9,10. They began ministering in resurrection life, and became an exceeding great army (See Rev.10:7 & 11:3-5; Moses prophesying to Pharaoh; Daniel to Nebuchadnezzar + many more).

2020: THE CHURCH’S WAR AGAINST GOD’S ENEMIES BEGINS PLANS FOR ITS “D-DAY.”

Just like the European nations, America and other allied nations during WW11 began making plans for a uni ed battle that began the fall of the Hitler Empire and the end of the war, so also Jesus Christ the Commander-ln-Chief of His saints army and angelic army will begin to reveal His plans and strategies to His army generals for making all His enemies His footstool. Fivefold ministers must make sure their saints have on their whole spiritual armor and know how to use their spiritual weapons of war. As Jesus revealed to His holy apostles and prophets His plans and strategies to build His Church, so will He use them to bring the revelation of the strategies for winning God’s World War 111 (Eph.3:3-5). “Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secrets to His servants the Prophets” (Amos 3:7). Jesus will do nothing in His Church or on planet earth without  rst proclaiming it through His Prophets. Listen and heed the enlightening and instructive voice of God through His true and mature prophets in 2020.

MIGHTY WARRIOR JESUS LED THE FIGHT IN GOD’S WW1 DURING THE FIRST REFORMATION.

Jesus purchased the Church, birthed it, and established it, and His disciples spread it to ends of the earth. This was God’s WW1. God’s WW11 was fought during the Second Reformation to restore all truths that were taken from the true Church by the devil during the 1000-year Dark Age Church, who changed its living, experiential truths into religious, dead works. God’s WW111 is being fought during the Third Reformation to ful ll God’s end-time purposes. The  nal and greatest battle ever to be fought by King Jesus and His saints army will bring about the consummation of the ages as described in Revelation 19:11- 21. It will close out the mortal Church Age and usher in Jesus and His kingdom saints ruling over all the earth (Rev.5:10; 19:11-21; 20:6; Daniel 4:34,35; 44,45. Daniel 7:9-10, 14, 18, 22, 26-27. Rev.11:15; Rev.2:26,27).

“PREPARE FOR WAR!!!” ( Joel 2:9-11). “AWAKE! AWAKE! Put on your strength Church!” (Is.52:1,2).

God showed me what Satan is presently planning. It’s like the time when the generals in Japan were making plans for attacking Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. At the same time, Japan sent ambassadors to Washington D.C. to keep America passive and unaware of what was about to take place. Satan is now planning a “Pearl Harbor Attack” on the Church. He is sending ambassadors (ministers) to keep the Church passive and unaware of what is about to take place in the Church and the nations. It’s like when Joshua and the Israeli army crossed Jordan and engaged in their military campaign to make the nations of Canaan the nation of Israel…Now, in like manner, Jesus’s Church army of saints have crossed their Jordan and have entered their military campaign that will not end until these and many other similar scriptures are ful lled: Rev.11;15; 2Pet.3:13; Rev.5:10; Heb.10:13.

2020: TIME TO POSSESS OUR FULL INHERITANCE!!!

I have received several prophecies from major prophets that I would have the anointing like Caleb for possessing my promised inheritance from Christ. Caleb was 85 years old when he came to the land in Canaan that he had spied out. I have reached my 85th year and am at my inheritance. Caleb requested from Joshua that he be given that land to conquer for his inheritance. Caleb had been .ghting in Canaan 5 years before it became the time and place for him to begin .ghting and possessing his own inheritance. 2020 is the year that I will begin possessing my full inheritance in Christ. Just as the anointing oil. Owed from Aaron’s head to the skirts of his garment, may this anointing oil to possess your inheritance .ow to all God’s prophetic people. Because it is the time for the father of the prophetic movement to receive the authority and time for possessing full inheritance, I pray and believe for all who receive and honor God’s true prophets to receive the same. Let us all keep .ghting until we possess all that God has promised us ( Joshua 14:6-15.; Eph.1:11). “Give Me My Mountain!”

2020: THE MAJORITY HAVE NOT POSSESSED!

“How long will you neglect to possess your inheritance?” ( Jos.18:2.3). Joshua challenged the 7 tribes concerning why they had neglected possessing their inheritance. There are serious consequences for neglecting to possess and manifest what Christ has given to us. 1 Corinthians 12:7 declares that the supernatural manifestations of the Holy Spirit are given to every saint. Some were given 5, some 2, some 1. For the servant who did not use the gift the Master gave to him, it was taken from him and given to another, and that servant was declared lazy, unpro.table, and was cast into outer darkness (Mt.25:14-30). Use it or lose it! “Neglect not the gift that is within you!” (1Tim.4:14). “You stir up the gift that is within you” (2Tim1:6). “How shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation (which includes) the gifts of the Holy Spirit?” “As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God” (Heb.2:2-4). Begin in 2020 to take the teaching and training for activating and ministering the grace and gifts of God you have inherited from Christ! Over one-half million have. But God needs millions equipped with their spiritual weapons of war to  ght along with Him in His WW111. He also needs millions equipped with the gospel and the supernatural to reap His great end-time harvest.

2020: THE TIME FOR GOD’S GREAT END-TIME HARVEST HAS BEEN LAUNCHED.

It will continue to increase until God’s desired harvest is reaped. More souls will be saved during the last 100 years of the Church than has been saved during the whole Church Age. Preparation must be made now for the great harvest. The harvesters must be equipped with God’s WW111 weapons of supernatural, Holy Spirit manifestations. The powerful, supernatural prophesying of the Prophets and miracles of the Apostles and powerful gospel preaching of the Evangelist are required to reap this greatest harvest ever recorded.

THE VOICE OF GOD THROUGH HIS PROPHETS CAN DETERMINE THE DESTINY OF NATIONS—GOAT OR SHEEP?

Old Testament Prophets prophesied God’s word to nations like Israel, Egypt, Babylon and many other nations, which revealed and determined their future and destiny. God declared to Prophet Jeremiah, “I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” God then decrees that He has set the prophet’s voice with the word of the Lord over the nations and kingdoms. “See, I have this day set you over the nations and the kingdoms” ( Jer.1:5,10). This would include the states and cities within a nation. Certain last day prophets will be commissioned to speak God’s personal word to a nation, and how that nation responds to God’s Word can determine whether they become a sheep nation that Jesus sets on His right side or a goat nation set on His left side (Mt.25:1-4, 41). National leaders will listen to God’s prophetic apostles and apostolic prophets to receive God’s wisdom and strategies for situations for which they do not have a solution. (An example is Isaiah prophesying God’s victory for the war. Is.37:1-7, 21-35; 2Kings 19:1-17).

GOD’S PROPHETS & OTHER 5-FOLD MINISTERS ARE EQUIPPING AND MATURING SAINTS.

Ephesians 4:11-16 shows God’s main commission to Prophets, Apostles, Pastors, Evangelist & Teachers is for them to equip the saints in their membership ministry in the fruit and gifts of the Holy Spirit. It is no longer just a good idea but an absolute necessity for the saints, who will be God’s overcomers manifesting the kingdom of God, for them to personally hear these words from Christ Jesus, “Well done good and faithful servant.” Ministers who know that they are supposed to equip the Saints in the character of Christ and manifestations of the Holy Spirit, but do not, will be held accountable on that day. The reason this is made a part of the Word of the Lord for 2020 is because Jesus knows the total amount of supernatural harvesters and warriors He needs in the immediate future to reap the harvest and win the war that has already begun. The thousands now prepared must quickly increase to millions!

2020: GOD’S MEGA GRACE IS BEING GIVEN TO THOSE COMMITTED TO THE PROCESS

Father God is giving extra grace and wisdom to His committed and chosen ones to hasten the process of conformity to the likeness of His Son Jesus Christ. God’s highest calling and priority for His sons and daughters is not to do the greatest works but to be transformed into Christlikeness. Jesus needs a certain amount of human beings who have been born again and grown to the maturity of Christlikeness. The Bible reveals that only the overcomers who have been conformed to Christlikeness will be chosen to rule and reign with Christ on levels of great responsibility. Apostle Paul declared that the su.erings we go through in crucifying the .esh, dying to self and the process for transformation into Christlikeness is not worthy to be compared to the rewards it brings in eternity (Rom.8:18, 29; Eph.4:13,15; 2 Cor.3:18; Heb.2:10). God’s “glory” for Christians is conformity to Christlikeness.
