Author's Note: This word was originally given to me in 2005 and is surely coming to pass with an update.
I heard the Father saying, "I have been patiently waiting in the lounges of many newsrooms as I gently knocked on their doors to let Me in. But now I am huffing and puffing and blowing the hinges off the doors with a grand entrance. In 2018 it will be A Happy New Year for the News Media."
"I will begin to promote unknown anchormen and anchorwomen into national media who have an 'anchor that holds and grips the solid rock!" In 2005, I saw several known anchormen and anchorwomen shaken to the core of their being as they became weary and unable to cope with the stress of their jobs day after day.
News Broadcasting stations will give way to news anchors who are being hoisted up from deep waters by the hand of the Lord to be brought on board the battered ships on the sea of life.
"A wealth of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is His treasure" (Isa. 33:6b).
These anchormen and anchorwomen will come forth from deep waters of the unknown. They will not only report the perilous news but will have the treasures and the riches of Christ inside of them, so that the anointing of God will come right through the radio and television screens as people become convicted by their radiant countenance and peace in the midst of chaos. These anointed news anchors will become spectacles to the world as they are given favor to report of the hope within them.
Some upcoming anointed news anchors will be given words of knowledge on what to do to avoid danger and disease. And they will report the news before the news actually takes place.
The favor of the Lord will increase upon these handpicked vessels because of their accuracy in reporting the news before the news actually spreads throughout broadcasting stations, bringing the fear of the Lord and salvation into many lives.
Many will kneel before their televisions, receiving Jesus Christ into their lives, with healings and miracles following. Some news anchors will be tagged with Bible names, such as anchorman Daniel or Elijah and anchorwoman Deborah, who speak with such authority that they will predict weather patterns and at times change them.
We must pray for those who are now connected in the news media as this great shaking continues upon them. Let's pray that they will be shaken into the kingdom during this time of great cleansing that has come upon the earth. And pray for the promotion of those whom God is bringing in to report His perspective upon these world events.
"Stay focused on Me and don't get addicted to the news of this world. Up until now they have blocked Me out, but the media will now give way as I blow the hinges off of newsrooms."
Bill Yount has been a member of Bridge of Life in Hagerstown, Maryland, for the past 36 years, where he is now an elder and a home missionary. He is currently an adviser at large for Aglow International. Bill faithfully served in prison ministry at Mount Hope for 23 years and now travels full-time, both in the U.S. and internationally, ministering in churches and Aglow circles. Humility and humor characterize his ministry as he brings forth a fresh word that is "in season," proclaiming the word of the Lord. The shofar, or ram's horn, is often used in his meetings, breaking the powers of darkness over regions, churches and households. The shofar represents God's breath blowing into the nostrils of His people, reviving them and awakening the lost. Many of God's messages, which Bill ministers prophetically, come out of his everyday life with his family and friends. Please visit Bill's website at billyount.com.
