You will receive many words over the next several weeks as 2020 begins to close in on us. One word that I feel the Lord saying is: "This is the Year of (spell it) V-I-C-T-O-R-Y!" All the things that you have been believing for are about to manifest.
For the Lord says, "My time is now. I am ready to act. I speak over you:
—No more hold-ups!
—No more cancellations!
—No more setbacks!
—No more delays!
—No more distractions!
I want My children to realize at this moment that it is a now season, because now faith will be needed in this hour! 'Now faith' requires that you walk in expectant faith at every moment of every day.
Do not doubt My Word and promises any longer. In this new decade, beginning in 2020, you will experience V-I-C-T-O-R-Y! Yes, victory on every level."
Here is an acronym of this word that the Holy Spirit has given me for you today:
"There are no ifs, ands or buts about it anymore," says the Lord. "You belong to Me. Your enemy (the accuser of the brethren) wants you to doubt everything that I have said to you and everything I have done in your life.
"I would say that, in this time, I'm going to bring to light all My promises and shine right in the face of your enemies. Even he will see My goodness in the land where you are living!
"As a matter of fact, I am putting My seal upon you. No foe can withstand My validation. All of hell will have to recognize My power, authority and rank with which I have validated you! You will walk in a supernatural unction never realized before. Even you will not believe what I am doing through and in you, before your very eyes," says the Lord of Hosts!
I: Increase Is Coming
The Lord says:
"It's not just regular, everyday, run-of-the-mill increase, but extraordinary increase! It's the kind of increase that Isaac received—the kind that made his neighbors envy him.
"In My Word [Gen. 26:12], I recorded where 'Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; the Lord blessed him.' He became a very rich man and his wealth continued to grow. He had so many flocks, herds and servants that even the Philistines envied him.
"Are you ready for that kind of increase on your life? Are you ready for the kind of increase where you are almost ashamed to tell what I have done that particular day because it's so much? You are going to increase so much that the world will shake their head and say, 'How can it be?' And when they do, your answer will be, 'It is by the strong hand of the Lord that this work has been wrought!'"
The Lord says:
"This is a very rare word that is not used so much in this day that you live in, but I am bringing it back. To get the full meaning of My Word over you, examine the definition from the world's perspective."
"To catapult" means:
—To bring suddenly into prominence.
—To jump or to spring.
—To throw violently.
This word is even used as a device that launches aircraft from a warship.
The Lord says:
"This is the season in which your head will spin with what I am about to catapult you into. Your head will spin with where I am about to catapult you to. My servant Amos describes it perfectly, saying:
"'Yes indeed, it won't be long now.' God's decree [is]: "Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing right 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!"' (Amos 9:13-15, MSG).
"So, get ready to mount up with wings as the eagles. Get ready to soar as I catapult you through every open door before the return of your great God and Savior, Me!"
T: Taking Territory
"This has always been on My mind. Ever since the beginning of time, in the garden with Adam and Eve, My first commandment was, 'Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth and subdue it' [Gen. 1:28].
"Territory has always been—and always will be—on the mind of your foe, Satan. He has been a thief, murderer, liar and destroyer ever since I discovered iniquity that was found in him.
"However, this brand-new decade will bring about a determination and grit inside of you. You will have the determination and grit to no longer stand on the outside of your dream and purpose, looking in. Instead, in this year of 2020 and beyond, you will seize territory with every step you take."
The Lord, your fighter, says:
"Every step is strategic in this season. As I told My servant Moses, and later told Joshua as well, 'The Lord will drive out all the nations ahead of you, though they are much greater and stronger than you. You will take over their land. Every place upon which you set your foot will be yours. I will give you every place upon which you set your foot, as I promised Moses.'"
The Lord says, "This territory will bring you into new places and new opportunities. I will give you the key of David. I will open doors that no man can shut and shut doors that no man can open.
"Do you see it? Can't you envision my plan for you?
—You will take territory.
—You will take the territory of your house.
—You will take the territory of your family, marriage and children.
—You will take the territory of starting your own business and going into entrepreneurship for the kingdom.
—You will take your health back in the name of the Lord.
—Your mind is lining up with the living Word of God.
—You are stepping out to take land, properties and opportunities only dreamed of before."
"Opportunity is the key word that is exploding in this season of your life, and on My calendar of events. My people have been held up and held back, and now is the time to believe for all that I have promised.
"2020 will see opportunities and doors that you can only imagine and dream about. I am the God of 'exceeding abundantly above all you can ask or imagine.' It is the time to prove Me and ask Me for anything!
"When you call Me, I will answer even before you call.
"While you are still speaking, I will hear you! You have been wondering, 'When will my time come? How can I get ahead with the calling on my life?' Yet I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord, "plans to prosper you and give you a hope and a future.
"There is not only coming a door of opportunity, but multiple doors of opportunities. Promotion, possibilities, favor, promise, advancement and success are all around you. Look for them; and when you see them, seize them!"
"Restoration is a part of My covenant with you, My child. My promise is that 'I will compensate you for the years the locusts have eaten—the larval locust, the hopper locust, and the fledging locust' [Joel 2:25]. My promise covenant is that 'You will eat abundantly and be satisfied, and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you; and My people will never again be shamed' [v. 26].
"Get ready to see an overflow of things that will come back to you that you thought were lost."
For the Lord of restoration says, "I am not just putting you back to your original place. I am placing you in a position where your enemy will regret that he ever stole from you because of the bounty of the harvest that is coming!"
"I desire for all My children to yearn for and desire My presence. It is My presence that will carry you, giving you My peace and love, in this culture of yearning for everything but Me.
"The intensity of My overpowering tenderness that is prevalent during this time will carry you to a place in which My overshadowing hunger will consume you. The yearning that will overwhelm you at this time will bring a strong desire for the enjoyment and pleasure that are found in My presence.
"I am giving you a great and strong desire to be with Me in this season.
"My presence is the only thing that will bring you both true meaning and a craving for Me. I have promised, 'Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you' [James 4:8]. I am ready to show you My miracles, signs and wonders that are getting ready to explode on this Earth. My dunamis power is getting ready to go off in your very spirit-being, lighting up this dark world for My glory!
"V-I-C-T-O-R-Y is promised, and is therefore sure and absolute!
"Victory in this new decade will look like and be bigger, greater and more attainable than any other season of your life. This is My promise! This is My guarantee! This is your destiny! Take it! Believe it! Expect it!"
Wow! I receive that word from the Lord; don't you?
