2014年—先知性長老使徒會議 A.C.P.E. 翟辛蒂(Cindy Jacobs)

2014年主的話先知性長老使徒會議
A.C.P.E. Word of the Lord for 2014
翟辛蒂(Cindy Jacobs
2014年1月29

「先 知性長老使徒會議」(The Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders, ACPE)自1999年以來,在每年的新年之前我們會一起禱告來尋求主的話。在2011年,我們增加一組新興的預言領袖,而今年我們將他們視為我們經驗豐 富的圓桌會議成員,同樣地我們也將他們的意見納入今年主的話之中。


「先知性長老使徒會議」深信我們正在扮演使徒行傳13:1-3經文裡 的團隊角色。這段經文指出,這是聖靈釋放出一個預言作為眾先知的共識,而不是任何一位先知的唯一言論,所以,縱然這些是我們每個人所帶到圓桌會議的預言彙 編,但這是ACPE成員的普遍共識,以下的預言是聖靈對我們所說的話。

當我們稱這個是2014年的預言,應該是說,ACPE相信神所說的時間,較多是指著季節方面,而不是指我們日曆上的年日,在過去幾年中我們所觀察到一些預言趨勢,已經持續了好幾年,而且也在增強中。

同樣重要且應該注意的是,代禱可以降低一些預言中的審判所帶來的嚴重後果-在某些情況下,能避免這些事情同時發生。在任何情況下,所有的預言都應該放在代禱中,無論是收割與祝福的預言,或是所得到的警告與勸誡。

身 為先知,回頭去檢視我們過去所說的預言,才是明智之舉,於是我們察驗了2011年到2013年的預言,並注意到,神不斷地在說有關這些年的一些發展趨勢。 因此,讓我們重申,預言所指的時間,一般應該更多解讀為季節方面,而不是日曆上的時間,所說的預言並非命運或是因果報應,而是取決於神的百姓如何回應而改 變局勢。

2014
年-雙倍之年(The Year of the Double 

有 一種屬靈的含意是針對我們已進入的猶太曆5774年、以及2014年,這二者以相當有趣的方式結合在一起。猶太曆5774年象徵著我們將「看見門」或是 「知道我們應該走的路」,而2014年數字中的14 ,或者說是兩個7,是表示「雙倍」的意思,總而言之,我們認為這是城門(double doors)〔雙門〕的季節。

以賽亞書45:1-3 【註:後句括號經文為現代中文譯本】

我─耶和華所膏的塞魯士;我攙扶他的右手,使列國降伏在他面前。我也要放鬆列王的腰帶,使城門(double doors)在他面前敞開,不得關閉。〔上主膏立塞魯士,揀選他作王。上主指派他征服列國,差他去削減諸王的權力。上主要列國為塞魯士大開城門,不再關閉。〕

我對他如此說:我必在你前面行,修平崎嶇之地。我必打破銅門,砍斷鐵閂。〔我要親自為你開路,為你削平大小山岡。我要攻破銅門,斬斷鐵閂。〕

我要將暗中的寶物和隱密的財寶賜給你,使你知道提名召你的,就是我─耶和華、以色列的 神。〔我要把隱藏的寶物、庫裏的財富都賜給你;我要你知道我是(I Am)上主,知道以色列的上帝指名呼喚你。〕

本先知會議對於今年能夠給予關於未來一年相當鼓勵的話而受到鼓舞。這並不是說不會有持續的震動了,而是也會有一個敞開的門,來加速與實現那似乎已被擱置或延遲的夢想。

14
-完美數字的雙倍

然而我們明白,我們並不是過度的神秘主義,聖經是一本數字的書,而14是非常明顯的聖經數字。14代表雙倍完成,並且強烈地使用在聖經中重複這個事實。以下是聖經中「14」的含意的一些例子:

世代(Generations

馬太福音1:17:「
這樣,從亞伯拉罕到大衛共有十四代;從大衛到遷至巴比倫的時候也有十四代;從遷至巴比倫的時候到基督又有十四代。」

有一個外衣的轉變正在發生,從一個世代傳承到另一個世代。領袖們需要尋找他們的繼任者,並讓下一個世代來取代他們的位置,否則上帝的運動將會錯過。

敬畏耶和華(The Fear of the Lord

數字14也與敬畏耶和華(the fear of the Lord)有關聯,在箴言中使用了14次。神要將「
敬畏耶和華」 放回到教會中,藉由一個新的聖潔運動將可看到,新的忍耐將賜給那些在社會各階層中捍衛聖潔的人,這將以一種獨特的方式彰顯出來,是透過那些被呼召到媒體和 電影業的人。有一種「施洗約翰」式的恩膏將臨到年輕的傳道者,以非常真實、深刻的信仰轉變方式來傳揚福音,這將會導致戲劇性的轉變,使一個生命從罪惡轉變 為聖潔。

拯救與救贖( Deliverance and Salvation

數字14代表拯救與救贖,在聖經中使用了22次。

在這新的一年,神不只將要給祂的百姓雙倍的恩寵與影響力,但更希望我們將這祝福顯明給其他的生命。在本質上,我們是帶著神的祝福給別人的,正如以利沙到耶利哥城,他擁有以利亞的外衣的雙倍恩膏,並用它來醫治整個城市的水質。【註:請讀列王紀下第二章】

希望之門(The Door of Hope

在這個代表一扇門的季節,其中我們所領受到最令人鼓舞的一句話就是:神正在打開一扇希望之門。

何西阿書2:15:「
她從那裏出來,我必賜她葡萄園,又賜她亞割谷作為指望的門。她必在那裏應聲(或譯:歌唱),與幼年的日子一樣,與從埃及地上來的時候相同。

我要把葡萄園還給她,使「災難谷」成為「希望門」;在那裏,她要回應我的愛,像她年輕、逃離埃及時一樣。(何西阿書2:15現代中文譯本)

希望是對美善事物的絕對期待。有很多經歷過極大絕望的人,甚至說道:「我很高興2013年已經過去了。」如今他們將在這個新季節獲得新的喜樂與希望,而在自然界這個「希望」將是超自然的。約伯記147-9:「
樹若被砍下,還可指望發芽,嫩枝生長不息;其根雖然衰老在地裏,幹也死在土中,及至得了水氣,還要發芽,又長枝條,像新栽的樹一樣。」

被砍下來的樹還有希望;它可能回復生機,長出幼芽嫩枝。縱使根已在地裏衰老,枝幹腐爛在土壤中,一有充足的水份仍然能發芽,好像幼苗長出新枝。(約伯記147-9現代中文譯本)

有一部分的希望是,將會發生神感動祂的百姓從一個他們生活的混亂地方移到一個更清澈(清楚)的地方。許多人還無法看到自己的道路並找到他們未來的方向,但是將會有一個新視野來到,他們將會看到門(door)或門路(gate)。

美國

神將會給美國另一個機會來解救自己。美國已經背離了上帝,正如預言所說的,她已經失去了她在地球上偉大的部分,然而,會有第二次機會來到這個國家。

有一個戰鬥的民族靈魂將會在2014年的選舉中顯現,但在神手裡有一些令人意外的東西,在自由派和保守派之間還會繼續對立,但那些主張聖經價值觀的人比那些持相反看法的人,將經歷一個增長的祝福。

然而在一些州的壓力,特別是在沿海的州,會使人們轉向神呼求。一個新的上帝運動會在紐約州北部、洛杉磯及舊金山爆發,神的火也將造訪西雅圖,並再次造訪華盛頓,就像是神在這個城市-靈恩運動的發源地,按下了重新設定的按鈕。

拉丁美洲人將在領導地位和影響力中搬遷出來,在世界各地的重大復興運動將以拉丁裔社區為首。

政府領袖

一 個新的政黨種子將與公義和公平對齊,在全國中如雨後春筍般出現。在政治版圖上會有一個改變,這將導致新的結盟,而這些結盟會讓人感到驚訝甚至震驚。美國就 在一個地方,那是一個新的「林肯黨」,偕同革命性的改革者而興起。這將會有一個社會正義之心-打擊人口販賣、貧窮、種族主義以及墮胎,這會結合聖經的價值 觀。其中一個特性會是財政計劃,當放在合適的位置時,將能消除國家債務。再次應當注意的是,這不會發生在短期的一年之內,這需要大量的代禱。

凡是潔淨自己、並一直忠心的人,即將在一個國家層級上得到釋放。這是以斯帖、但以理、約瑟興起的季節,並在政府部門擔任要職。這是在政府部門的婦女的關鍵時刻,她們必須興起,並回應呼召來參與。

印地安人將甦醒成為一個新的、引人注目的行政治理區。

一個正義運動將在美國的非洲裔美國人社區中掘起,它會發起一些新的事物,對社區和國家將造成極大的影響。本質上這將是新的民權運動,在不危及正義的立場之下,將國家帶回到純潔和聖潔之地步。

終止墮胎與神蹟的關聯

美國終止人工流產將會是開啟新的神蹟運動的一個屬靈因素。在1973年後,以及墮胎合法化之後,美國便遭受到一種詛咒,而這詛咒會與2013年的結束而開始解除。今年是神蹟奇事運動重新誕生的一年,也是預備福音傳道與神蹟的聖徒運動誕生的一年。

煉金之人的火(The Refiner’s Fire

沿續之前的事,會有一股復興的道德價值觀的巨大風潮出現。許多領袖一直在煉金之人的火中,而且已經準備好要被轉移到新的領導層次。

在美國的政治版圖中,會有一群新的「黑袍團」(black robe regiment)牧師掘起,正如在國家初期之情形,凡是拒絕去妥協聖經價值觀的人,會毫無顧忌的無所懼怕,從他們的講壇上宣講出真理。

耶穌門徒運動(Jesus People Movement

美 國現在是在另一個耶穌門徒運動當中,就像在60年代末期和70年代初期之間。從某種意義上來說,從以前到現在,我們似乎一直在「預言停滯期」 (prophetic lull),關於未來,神一直沉默不語,但是這都在上帝的策略計畫之中,神一直在秘密預備一個新世代的領袖,他們具有雙倍的恩膏,他們就是新的耶穌門徒(Jesus People,他們是充滿熱情與憐憫的一支勢不可擋的軍隊-為失喪的人有熱情,對那些受到貧窮、人口販賣、以及其他不公義之事所奴役之人存有憐憫的心。

有一種神聖的匯聚,就是帶著現在的力量與生命力之昔日的上帝運動的恩膏,而這些耶穌門徒更遠遠超過過去的偉大將軍。曾經經歷過政治性和歷史性的復興恩膏的城市將會受到衝擊。聖靈將會以特殊的方式造訪新奧爾良這個城市。

這 些璀璨耀眼的明星將突然躍上世界各國的舞台,他們將開始行出神蹟,就好像只有當今的世代才能讀到、夢想到以及禱告而看見發生的。世界各地的醫院將開放成為 醫病禱告的房間,而隨著代禱被釋放到醫學界和研究人員,有關癌症以及其他看似疑難雜症的新的醫學突破,將從天堂釋放出來。

新聞媒體將因 他們所看到的事而心驚肉跳,而故事會被檢驗證實。運動界或運動行業將繼續受到影響,而在球員中的上帝運動將逐漸擴大,會看到整支球隊「暫停」 (taking two)球賽並跪下來禱告,無論是賽前和賽後,甚至對方陣營也會跟著做,而且自由媒體也不能因為輿論的影響而干預之。即使在威爾斯大復興(Welsh revival)時期,就連運動競賽都會受到影響,所以此時也不例外。

世界未得之地都將打開-就是那些福音化未深入的地區。這是真正收割的時刻,這個耶穌門徒運動將會有一個國度觀點(kingdom focus)和一種改革的思維(reformational mindset),這將導致轉化發生。

收割與體育館

許多新的外衣將會降臨,正如這些外衣曾做在葛培理身上,而體育館將會爆滿。這些事件會出現有關財務方面的極大的信心,它們將被神使用在整個城市中來點燃神的行動。一個新的敬拜聲音會從這些體育館中出現,將有基督身體在唱著豐收之歌,他們將被差遣出去到萬國收割。

詩篇133篇的合一

一個新的合一將臨到教會,特別是在校園中的「禱告之家運動」(House of Prayer movements)的年輕人當中。他們所堅信的是在於主耶穌,而不是一個宗派上。我們領受到警告,要提防欺騙之事,撒旦會企圖分化這些運動。

看哪,弟兄和睦同居是何等地善,何等地美!這好比那貴重的油澆在亞倫的頭上,流到鬍鬚,又流到他的衣襟;又好比黑門的甘露降在錫安山;因為在那裏有耶和華所命定的福,就是永遠的生命。(詩篇133篇)

先知運動的警告

一直存在著一種疲乏已經進入到預言運動,這是為神重新點燃你的熱情的時刻,而且不要退回到自己的安樂窩。甚至有一種考驗將臨到先知們,要看看在未來誰將會被推向更大的知名度。

美國的原殖民地

美國最初的13個殖民地,在未來幾年內將得到神的特別造訪。影響常春藤大學的世俗人文主義之「希臘王子」(Prince of Greece)即將失勢,並開始一個「第三次大覺醒」(Third Great Awakening),會發生在哈佛和耶魯這樣的院校。

【註1:有關世俗人文主義,請參考梁燕城-「世俗人文主義盛行與基督徒因應之道」國度復興報香港版http://www.krt.com.hk/modules/news2/print.php?storyid=100)】

【註 2:第三次大覺醒是指,在第二次大覺醒十九世紀初,經過約二、三十年到了十九世紀中期之時,在美洲大陸又興起一次屬靈復興。教會的弟兄姊妹及城市百姓都悔 改認罪,渴慕認識主。戶外的奮興佈道會帶領人一波波悔改認識主,並得著救恩。也因著復興悔改之浪潮,開啟了普世宣教的浪潮,帶動宣教的烈火焚燒,使福音廣 傳到非洲與亞洲。(維基百科)】

政府代禱

即將有一波新的神的感動,來為全世界的政府代禱。在過去季節,曾經出現過廣為所知而後來被稱為「琴與爐」的敬拜禱告,其根據啟示錄5:8

他既拿了書卷,四活物和二十四位長老就俯伏在羔羊面前,各拿著琴和盛滿了香的金爐;這香就是眾聖徒的祈禱。」

在 這即將來到的季節,神要將主流的禱告殿運動-即目前所知在一些代禱界的一種政府代禱型態,轉變為「冠冕與寶座」(Crown and Throne)的代禱型態,在這當中,神希望我們能夠與祂立約,在敬拜中建立祂的權柄寶座,並在祂的寶座前等候,從這之後,神的治理就能彰顯在全地。

這將反映在全地上,如啟示錄4:10-11中所記載在天上所發生的事:

那二十四位長老就俯伏在坐寶座的面前敬拜那活到永永遠遠的,又把他們的冠冕放在寶座前,說:我們的主,我們的 神,你是配得榮耀、尊貴、權柄的;因為你創造了萬物,並且萬物是因你的旨意被創造而有的。」

這描繪出對王位和主權的承認,因著神創造那些王位和主權的權利,神是配得榮耀、尊貴、權柄的,而事實上,在天堂所塑造的應該被地上的王位(國家)所承認。

我們有一種感覺,神即將要管教地上的領袖,因為他們已經決定要移動神親自為這些國家所設立的統治權邊界。

兒童運動

有 報導從世界各地進來,預言的恩膏正臨到小孩子身上,像是在法國的地方,在1600年末期曾澆灌在胡格諾派(Huguenots)孩子的身上,如今又再次發 生。一個新的撒母耳世代正在興起,二歲到十歲的年幼孩子將會發預言!他們將領受到重要異象與異夢,甚至給予成年人有關生命的指引方向。

【註: 胡格諾派(Huguenots)在1559年的巴黎宗教會議中,由法國各地區的加爾文跟隨者所組織,於16世紀至17世紀為法國新教。此教派受到1530 年代約翰·加爾文思想的影響,在政治上反對君主專制。在1555年至1561年期間,許多貴族和市民改宗胡格諾派,在此期間,天主教會首次用「胡格諾」來 稱呼加爾文的信徒,而胡格諾派則自稱為改革者(維基百科)。】

有一些嬰兒,就是現在仍在子宮裡的胎兒、以及那些剛出生的「復活的嬰兒」(revival babies),上帝已賜給這些非常特殊的小傢伙一個獨特的恩膏與恩賜。

禾場

在這個收割與啟示的季節,將發生一種打穀〔脫粒〕的階段,收割總是與小麥脫去穀殼的一段時間有關。神將對付屬靈的詭詐和虛假的教義,我們必須警醒禱告,避免受騙。

我們都意識到,大多的代禱運動已經走過一段極為疲軟的季節,不過,神必將一種新的活力傾倒在禱告運動來做「脫粒禱告」(thresh in prayer),在這個新的季節中,能看見我們的國家與神的旨意一致。

禾場總是建造在一個受風面之處,教導的恩賜會帶來一股嶄新的神的風,伴隨著神蹟奇事與奇蹟,而那些不信的穀殼將會被吹走。

在此時期,恩典會臨到教會來建造,那是為了得到「糧倉」(silos)來存放莊稼。有許多對財產和新的場所抱有信心的人,將會看到這是在信心中遷出的時刻,而且神會超自然地供應。

我們得到一個警告,就在神的清新之風吹在這個季節之時,要注意防備撒旦企圖分裂和分散教會之事。我們一定要「守護我們的禾場」(guard our threshing floors)或是教會、家庭以及事奉的地方。

禾場是象徵大衛用獻祭來打破國家詛咒的地方【註:請看撒母耳記下第24章】。會有一種堅定信念,不旦獻上個人的生命也獻上財物,在許多層面上來建立神的國度,這包括普世收割的一種神的感動〔神的行動〕。

掠奪的靈

撒 旦已針對基督的身體發動強烈的攻擊要來「搶走」(rob)我們,而且要讓我們誤以為神並沒有聽見禱告,並使我們認為有些事情為「人生就是如此」(just life)。這種掠奪的靈(robbing spirit)想要抓住我們去接受次好的事物,而不是領受神為我們的生命所預備最美好的事物。

在這個雙倍祝福之年,有一種特殊的恩膏,是去命令撒旦償還牠從我們這裡所奪走的一切。我們認為在流感季節撒但會企圖釋放出一株新的流感菌種,那是相當致命的疾病-我們必須同時禱告與防範其造成的影響。

腐敗

在政府官員當中的腐敗會被揭發出來,有些人覺得他們並不受影響,但後來會被揭穿是騙子。在一些採礦業的腐敗會被揭發,包括煤礦開採。

堅守崗位守望

在這個時刻,禱告殿需要策略性調動來堅守崗位守望他們的國家。我們必須要堅守崗位,不要讓我們的禱告運動變得疲憊不振,而是仍然站在城牆上守望。

新的超級風暴將企圖發展成形,然而神正賜下新的權柄給代禱者來禁止它們。要察覺知道並防備守望。

教會需要更警戒和敏銳-站崗守望來遏止那些企圖對我們國家不利而在暗中進行之事。

雙倍賠償

賠償的法律在今年有特殊的意義,如同我們到天堂的法庭尋求正義。

出埃及記22:4, 7,9(現代中文譯本)
「如果被偷的牛,或驢,或羊被發現時還活著,他就得加倍償還。」 
「如果有人受託保管別人的錢或貴重物品,被竊賊從家裏偷走,竊賊被抓到的話,必須加倍償還;」 
「任何有關財產糾紛的案件,無論涉及牛、羊、驢、衣服,或其他遺失的東西,爭執的雙方都要到敬拜的場所去。上帝判定有罪的一方必須加倍償還對方。」

約伯記42:10: 「約伯為他的朋友祈禱。耶和華就使約伯從苦境(原文是擄掠)轉回,並且耶和華賜給他的比他從前所有的加倍。」

這些經文都表明要加倍償還,這在2014年-雙倍祝福的一年,是非常顯著的。

有得到一個告誡,就是雙倍收回在過去幾年我們被撒旦所搶奪的一切。有許多人在最近這幾年損失很多財物,而這是一個恢復與償還的時候,損失的財物應當請求雙倍收回,在未來幾年將發生很多這類事情。

敬拜運動

大衛帳幕將開始匯聚成一種「巡迴牧師運動」(Circuit Riders Movement),正如同敬拜與福音傳道開始一起運作,如在使徒行傳15:16所預言的,地方教會將開始把24 / 7的禱告網【註:每週7天每天24小時】併入教會生活中。

使徒行傳15:16:「
正如經上所寫的:此後,我要回來,重新修造大衛倒塌的帳幕,把那破壞的重新修造建立起來。」

七座山運動

好萊塢

在未來幾年,神的國度對這座山的影響將會增加。藝術/娛樂以及媒體的山會有極大的進展,當年輕的導演和製片人以一種非宗教的方式讓他們的聲音被聽見,這會將有益健康的內容帶進劇院。

年輕的電影畢業生將推出秘密間諜的影片企劃,來揭露社會不公義事件,這些將凝聚人們採取行動來對抗曾在黑暗中進行之事。

顧問指導的客戶會在業界聚集,而聖經研究將在那些媒體和電影中迅速增加。

家庭

家庭將再度開始一起禱告。父親們將起來,開始每天與自己的孩子禱告,同時每天也為自己的孩子禱告。現在是點燃家庭祭壇的時候,在瑪拉基書4:6中的家庭關係之恢復將逐漸升高,而浪子們將回到神面前。

瑪拉基書4:6:「
他必使父親的心轉向兒女,兒女的心轉向父親,免得我來咒詛遍地。」

商業

在這座山的新興領袖們將要興起,某種程度上會將商業結構放到正確位置,他們將會是體制的顛覆者。神要釋放更多的啟示給基督教商業機構,設計聰明的創新事物,創作出引人注意的效果,例如,在非洲將興起一種顛覆性技術,有助於整個非洲大陸的淨水工程。

財富轉移(Transfer of Wealth

關於財富轉移的啟示也將呈現出一種新的規模,因為那些已經累積的財富開始進入七座山。這事先前已經以一種隱蔽的方式發生了,而且從一些新聞雜誌、報紙和電視通路等重要媒體中,會出現令人感到意外的「接管者」(take-overs)。

將會出現新形式的慈善事業,而且信徒會衝到他們的頂峰,那是非常突然地發生。

許多的約瑟正走到他們試煉的尾聲。會有一連串的資金從亞洲而來,到其他國家合適的人手中,他們將會策略性地引導資金。

醫療發明也將出現,那將會醫治許多人,同時也將資金帶進商業機構。

神將不斷啟示新的顛覆性技術之創新發明,給那些具有國度觀的商業中心領袖,這將釋放出財富,再加上這財富的創造,消弭體制性貧窮的新經濟策略將是由許多在基督教商界的人所發聲。

給列國的話

中東

以色列
在以色列的兒童和青年中即將發生一種行動,我們覺得神允許以色列與伊朗存在著緊張局勢持續了一段季節,為要使以色列發生一種覺醒。

伊斯蘭教國家 
在伊斯蘭教的遜尼派和什葉派教派之間的持續分裂會逐漸擴大,這個分裂將提供一個不尋常的大門,藉由在中東的教會來傳揚福音,世人將會看見光明與黑暗、耶穌和伊斯蘭教之間的對比。以賽亞書第19章的禱告運動將比以往更強烈的方式出現。

大批的穆斯林都來親近神,在埃及會有22個新的禱告殿。

我們得到一個警告,在幼發拉底河和尼羅河即將發生旱災,所以需要迫切禱告。

伊朗 
伊朗的核電廠就像是巴別塔,最後終將倒塌。

敘利亞、黎巴嫩、伊拉克北部 
在這地區將會有「華冠代替灰塵」賜給神的百姓,小孩子將會有來自神的造訪,即使是在難民營。

埃及 
我 們看到一個季節的持續震動,然而這會使舊的敬拜結構開始倒塌,這些將「突如其來地」(suddenlies)發生,在禱告中與埃及連結是非常重要的,因為 這個戰略性國家將成為神的一盞明燈,而「出埃及」(out of Egypt)將帶來一個很大的行動,對世界各國產生影響。

歐洲 
在歐洲有一個覺醒運動正開始點燃,正如前面所提到的,法國正在覺醒之中。在威爾士(Wales)、蘇格蘭以及愛爾蘭的復興水井將要重新打開,這將使英格蘭看見神,並看見神正在做的事,並因他們的神的行動而受到影響。

荷蘭
新 一代的亞伯拉罕.凱柏(Abraham Kuyper)將會影響這個國家,而荷蘭將提升到一個新的權柄位置。有一個勸誡是給教會的,就是要進入到一個新的合一與兄弟之愛。撒旦將企圖撕裂基督的身 體,並阻止這個國家走向這新的權柄位置,所以迫切禱告是必要的。【註:有關亞伯拉罕.凱柏(Abraham Kuyper)的介紹,可參考張立明的「凱柏對加爾文神學的闡釋」http://indychinesechurch.org/Kuyper

亞洲

中國 
中國將繼續強大起來,一胎化政策將繼續崩潰,而在其結束之時,會在整個中國大陸發出一個新的豐收季節之信號。

全中國的大學校園裡將被神的大能所觸摸。

日本 
有一個新世代的日本領袖們,將充滿熱情地在看著他們的國家被神的大能所觸摸。要注意觀看他們的掘起,甚至他們會影響國際舞台。

韓國 
已趨於停滯的韓國教會將會開始增長,傳道者將嶄露頭角。電影和音樂界將經歷一波強大的聖靈工作。

香港
關於財政與經濟策略,香港必會走到領先地位,這將會影響世界。

蒙古
注意看這個國家突然躍上國際舞台來影響整個世界。

火環帶國家 
這些被稱為「環太平洋火山帶」(Rim of Fire or Ring of Fire)的國家,將為神而閃耀發光。菲律賓、印尼、以及其他島嶼,將帶著神的行動而「爆發」(erupt),這是收割的時刻,當然,這會發生在不同的時期。

印尼的禱告殿運動將差遣宣教士遍及中東地區,以及世界上像北韓這般封閉的地區,神將賜下超自然的恩寵給這些「禱告宣教士」(prayer missionaries)。

巴西 
情勢將會繼續震動,但隨著這些震動,教會將會興起,並在社會的許多層面上影響整個國家。

地中海地區 
希臘將會出現強烈的震動,因為希臘王子的勢力正被打破,而聖徒為這個具有歷史性的重要民族的禱告會顯現出來。很多地中海地區將開始經歷到火花,這將成為火焰。要為地中海的海防邊界禱告,以防止恐怖攻擊,這是非常緊急的事。

ACPE Word of the Lord for 2014
January 29, 2014
Generals News, Generals News


ACPE Word of the Lord for 2014

Each year, as we have since 1999, the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders meets before the New Year to pray and seek the Lord for a word. In 2011 we added a group of emerging prophetic leaders that, this year, we consider fully seasoned members of our round table and we include their input as well into the word of the Lord.

The ACPE carries the conviction that we are to function as an Acts 13:1-3 group. This passage notes that it was the Holy Spirit releasing a prophetic word as a consensus of the prophets as opposed to the exclusive utterance of any one prophet. So, even though this is a compilation of the prophecies that we each have brought to the round table meeting, it was the general consensus of the ACPE members that the Holy Spirit was speaking the following prophetic words to us.

While we are calling this a prophecy for 2014, it should be noted that the ACPE believes that the Lord speaks more in seasons, as opposed to our calendar years, and in the past few years we have observed that the trend of some of the prophetic words has been continuing for several years and is intensifying.

It is also important to note that intercession can diminish the severity of some of the words that speak of potential judgment – and in some cases may avert them all together. In any case, all prophecies should be bathed in intercession, both the ones that speak of harvest and blessing, as well as the ones with admonitions attached to them.

As prophets, it is always wise to go back and look at the words we have given in the past. We did this for the years of 2011-13, and noted that the Lord continues to speak regarding some of the trends spoken in those years. So let us reiterate. The timing of prophetic words should generally be understood more in a season than a calendar year, and the words given are not fate or karma, but can be changed subject to how God's people respond.

2014 - The Year of the Double 

There is a spiritual significance to both the Hebraic calendar year 5774, which we have entered, and the year 2014, which tie together in quite an interesting way. The Hebraic year 5774 typologically indicates that we will “see the door” or “know the way in which we should go,” while the year 2014—being a fourteen, or two sevens—signifies “the double.” Taken together, one could consider this to be a season of double doors.

Isaiah 45:1-3

“Thus says the Lord to His anointed, To Cyrus, whose right hand I have held - To subdue nations before him, And loose the armor of kings, To open before him the double doors, So that the gates will not be shut.
I will go before you And make the crooked places straight, I will break in pieces the gates of bronze And cut the bars of iron,
I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the Lord, Am the God of Israel.”

The prophets’ council was encouraged this year to be able to give quite an encouraging word for the coming year. This is not to say that there will not be continued shakings, but there is also an open door for acceleration and the accomplishment of dreams that have seemingly been put on hold or delayed.

Fourteen—The Number of Double Perfection 

While we understand that we are not to be overly mystical, the Bible is a book of numbers, and fourteen is very significant biblical number. Fourteen represents double completion, and is used powerfully in the Bible to iterate this fact. Following are some examples of the significance of fourteen in scripture:

Generations 

Matthew 1:17
“So all the generations from Abraham to David are FOURTEEN generations, from David until the captivity of Babylon are FOURTEEN generations, and from the captivity of Babylon until the Christ are FOURTEEN generations.”

There is a shifting of mantles from one generation to another that is taking place. Leaders need to look for their successors and allow the next generation to take their place or a move of God will be missed.

The Fear of the Lord 

The number fourteen is also connected with the fear of the Lord and is used 14 times in the book of Proverbs. God is going to put the fear of the Lord back into the Church and this will be seen through a new holiness movement. New endurance will be given to those who stand for holiness in all of society. This will manifest in a unique way through those who are called to media and the film industry. A “John the Baptist” type anointing will fall upon young evangelists to preach in such a way that true, deep conversions will result in dramatic turning away from sin to a life of holiness.

Deliverance and Salvation

The number fourteen represents deliverance and salvation and is used 22 times as such in the Bible.
God is going to not only give His people a double portion of favor and influence in this coming year, but wants us to manifest this in others' lives. In essence, we are carriers of God’s blessings to others such as Elisha was to the city of Jericho. He had a double portion of Elijah’s mantle and used it to heal the waters of the entire city.

The Door of Hope 

In this season that represents a door, one of the most encouraging words we’ve received is that God is opening a door of hope.

Hosea 2:15 “There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she will sing as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt.”

Hope is the absolute expectation of something good.

Many who have experienced great hopelessness and have even said, “I am so glad that 2013 is over,” will receive new joy and hope in this coming season. This hope will be supernatural in nature.

Job 14: 7-9 “For there is hope for a tree, if it is cut down, that it will sprout again And that its tender shoots will not cease. Though its root may grow old in the earth And its stump may die in the ground, Yet, at the scent of water it will bud And bring forth branches like a plant.”

Part of the hope will come as God moves His people from a place of confusion in their lives to a place of clarity. Many have not been able to see their way and find direction for their future, but there is coming a new view.
They will see the door or gate.

United States

The Lord is going to give the United States another opportunity to redeem herself. America has turned away from God and, as prophecies have spoken, has lost a measure of greatness across the face of the earth. However, there is a second chance coming to the nation.

There is a battle for the soul of the nation that will manifest in the election of 2014 but the Lord has some surprises up His sleeve. There will continue to be polarity between liberals and conservatives, but those states who stand for biblical values versus those who don't will experience an increase in blessing.

However, the pressure in some states, particularly on the coasts, will cause people to cry out to God. A new move of God will break out in upstate New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The fires of God will also visit Seattle, Washington once again, as God pushes the reset button on this city that is the birthplace of the Charismatic Movement.

Latinos will move out in leadership and influence. A major move of revival around the world will be spear-headed by the Latino community.

Governmental leaders 

The seeds of a new political party that will align with both righteousness and justice are sprouting in the nation.
There is a shift in political landscapes that will result in new alignments, and these alignments will surprise and even shock people. The United States is at a place where there will be a new “party of Lincoln,” with revolutionary reformers arising. It will have a heart for social justice - fighting human trafficking, poverty, racism and abortion; and it will marry this with biblical values. One of its attributes will be a fiscal plan that, when put in place, will eliminate the national debt. Again, it should be noted that this is not going to happen within a one year period of time and will require much intercession.

Those who have purified themselves and have been faithful are about to be released at a national level. This is the season for Esthers, Daniels and Josephs to arise and influence key positions in government. It is a key time for women in government who must arise and answer the call to engage.

Native Americans are going to come to a new, visible place of government.

A righteousness movement is going to arise out of the African American community in the United States and it will start something new that will greatly impact both communities and the nation. This will be, in essence, a new civil rights movement that will bring the nation back to purity and holiness, without compromising the stand for justice.

Miracles Linked to the Ending of Abortion

The ending of abortion for the United States will be one spiritual factor in opening up a new move of miracles. After 1973, and the legalization of abortion, the United States came under a curse that will begin lifting with the ending of 2013. This is the year for the re-birth of the signs and wonders movement and the birthing of the saints’ movement for evangelism and miracles.

The Refiner’s Fire

There is, along with the previous things, a renewed groundswell of moral values. Many leaders have been in the refiner’s fire and have been prepared to be moved into new levels of leadership.

In the United States’ political landscape, there is a new “black robe regiment” of pastors arising, such as in the early days of the nation, who will refuse to compromise biblical values and will be unashamed and unafraid to preach truth from their pulpits.

Jesus People Movement 

The U.S. is in the midst of another Jesus People Movement, like that of the late 60’s and early 70’s. In a sense, prior to now, it seems that we have been in a “prophetic lull” in which the Lord has been quiet concerning the future, but this has been in God’s strategic plan. For behind the scenes He has been preparing a new generation of leaders that have a double-portion anointing on them. They are the new Jesus People and they are an unstoppable army with passion and compassion - passion for the lost and compassion for those who are enslaved by poverty, human trafficking and other injustices.

There is a divine convergence of the anointing of the past moves of God with the strength and vitality of the present, and these Jesus People will far exceed even the great generals of the past. Cities that once had both governmental and historic revival anointings will be impacted. New Orleans will be a city that the Holy Spirit will visit in a special way.

These bright shining stars will burst upon the scene in the nations of the earth. They are going to begin to operate in miracles such as this present generation has only read about, dreamt about, and prayed to see happen. Hospitals across the world will become open to having healing rooms for prayer. As intercession is released for the medical community and researchers, new medical breakthroughs for cancer and other seemingly incurable diseases will be released from heaven.

The news media will be gripped by what they see. Stories will be verified. The sports mountain or sector will continue to be impacted and the move of God among players will escalate. Whole teams will be seen “taking two” and kneeling down to pray, both before and after games. Even opposing teams will be seen doing his, and the liberal press will not be able to intervene because of the sway of public opinion. Even as in the Welsh revival, in which sports games were affected, so it will be at this time.

Unreached regions of the world will open up - regions that have been largely unevangelized. It is truly harvest time. This Jesus People movement will have a kingdom focus and a reformational mindset that will lead to transformation.

Harvest and Stadiums 

New mantles will fall even as they did upon Billy Graham, and stadiums will be filled. Great faith will arise for the finances for these events. They will be used of God to spark moves of the Lord in whole cities. A new sound of worship will arise out of these stadiums that will have the Body of Christ singing harvest songs. They will be sent out with the anointing to harvest the nations.

Psalm 133 Unity 

A new move of unity will come to the Church, particularly among the youth on campuses and in the House of Prayer movements. Their adherence will be to the Lord Jesus rather than to a denomination. We received an admonition to beware of deception and Satan trying to bring division into these movements.

Admonition to the Prophetic Movement 

There has been a weariness that has come into the prophetic movement. This is a time to re-fire your passion for God and not to pull back into your comfort zone. There is even a testing coming to the prophets to see who will be moved into a larger measure of visibility in the future.

The United States’ Original Colonies 

The original 13 colonies of the U.S are going to receive a special visitation from God in the coming years. The “Prince of Greece” of secular humanism that has affected the Ivy League universities is going to come down and the beginnings of a Third Great Awakening will take place in such colleges as Harvard and Yale.

Governmental Intercession 

There is going to be a fresh move of God to pray for governments across the face of the earth. In the past season, there has been a widespread understanding of what became known as “harp and bowl” intercession, based on Revelation 5:8:

“And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.”
In this coming season, God is going to mainstream into the House of Prayer movement a type of governmental intercession currently known in some intercessory circles as “Crown and Throne” intercession, wherein the Lord wants us to make covenant with Him to establish His throne of authority in worship and waiting before Him.
From this, His governance can be manifested in the earth.

This would mirror on earth what happens in heaven as written in Revelation 4:10-11:

“The twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:

“'You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.'”

This depicts the recognition by thrones and dominions that God is worthy to receive the glory and honor and power of those thrones and dominions by right of creation, and the fact that what heaven is modeling should be recognized by thrones (nations) on earth.

There was a sense that God is going to discipline earthly leaders who have decided that they are going to move the boundaries that the Lord, Himself, has set up for the governance of nations.

Children’s Movement 

Reports are coming in from around the world of the anointing for prophetic utterance falling upon little children in places like France. There was an outpouring upon the children of the Huguenots in the late 1600’s and it is happening again. A new Samuel generation is arising and small children as young as two to ten years old will prophesy! They will receive key visions and dreams that will give direction even to the adults in their lives.

There are babies in the womb now and those just being born who are “revival babies.” God has given a unique anointing and giftedness to these very special little ones.

The Threshing Floor 

During this season of harvest and revelation, there is going to come a threshing. Harvest always involves a time of separating the wheat from the chaff. God is going to deal with spiritual deception and false doctrine. We must watch and pray against deception.

We all realized that the intercessory movement, in general, has gone through a season of great weariness.
However, the Lord will pour out upon the prayer movements a new vitality to “thresh in prayer” and see our nations align with God’s purposes during this new season.

The threshing floor was always built in a place to catch the wind. The teaching gift will bring a new, fresh wind of God along with the signs, wonders, and miracles. The chaff, as it were, of unbelief is going to be blown away.

Grace will come upon the Church to build in this time in order to have “silos” to keep the harvest. Many who have believed for property and new space will see that this is the time to move out in faith and God will supernaturally provide.

There was an admonition given to watch against Satan trying to divide and scatter the Church in the midst of the fresh wind of God blowing in this season. We must “guard our threshing floors” or churches, homes and places of ministry.

Symbolically, the threshing floor was the place where David made sacrifice to break the curse upon the nation.
There is coming a deep conviction of giving one’s life as well as finances to build the Kingdom on many levels.
This will include a move of God for world harvest.

Robbing Spirit 

Satan has brought great attacks against the Body of Christ to “rob” us and cause us to believe that God does not hear and that there are certain things that are “just life.” This robbing spirit wants to get us to accept second best instead of God’s highest for our lives.

There is a special anointing in this year of the double to command that Satan pay back what he has robbed from us. Flu Season We feel that Satan is going to try and release a new strain of flu to break out, that is quite virulent - and we must both pray and guard against its effects.

Corruption

Corruption will be exposed among government officials and some who have felt they were immune to being seen will be revealed as liars.

Corruption will be exposed in some mining industries, including coal mining.

Stand on Guard 

The Houses of Prayer need to mobilize strategically to stand on guard for their nations at this time. We must stand on guard and not allow our prayer movements to become weary, but remain watching on the wall.

New super storms will try to develop and God is giving new authority to intercessors to legislate against them.
Be aware and stand on guard.

The Church needs to be alert and sensitive - stand on guard in order to restrain things done in secret that will attempt to adversely affect our nations.

Double Restitution

The law of restitution will have a particular significance in this year as we go to the court of heaven for justice.

Exodus 22:4, 7, 9
"If the stolen animal is found alive in his (a thief’s) possession — whether ox or donkey or sheep — he (the thief) must pay back double.
"If a man gives his neighbor silver or goods for safekeeping and they are stolen from the neighbor's house, the thief, if he is caught, must pay back double.
“In all cases of illegal possession of an ox, a donkey, a sheep, a garment, or any other lost property about which somebody says, 'This is mine,' both parties are to bring their cases before the judges. The one whom the judges declare guilty must pay back double to his neighbor.”

Job 42:10
“And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.” These verses all show that restitution was to be paid double. This is very significant as 2014 is the year of the double.

An admonition was given to call back, with a double portion, those things Satan has robbed us of in the past years. Many have lost much financially in the last number of years and this is a time for both restoration and restitution. Double return of lost finances should be called in and this will manifest for many in the next few years.

Worship Movement 

The Tabernacle of David will begin to come together with a “Circuit Riders Movement” as worship and evangelism begin to function together as prophesied in Acts 15:16. Local churches will begin to incorporate 24/7 prayer into the life of the Church.

Acts 15:16
“After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up.”

7 Mountains Movement 

Hollywood 

Kingdom influence in this mountain will increase in the coming years. The mountains of arts/entertainment and media will see huge strides as young directors and filmmakers make their voices heard in a non-religious way that will bring wholesome content to the theaters.

Young film graduates will launch undercover film projects which will ultimately expose social injustices. These will rally people to take action against what was once being done in darkness.
Mentoring connections will come together in the industry and Bible studies will spring up among those in media and film.

Family 

Families will begin to pray together once again. Fathers will rise up and begin to pray both with and for their children each day. It is time to light the family altar. Restoration of families in fulfillment of Malachi 4:6 will escalate and the prodigals will return to the Lord.

Malachi 4:6
“And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

Business 

New leadership in this mountain will arise and put structures in place in a way that would be system disruptors.
God is going to release greater revelation to the Christian business sector. Witty innovations will be created which will produce dramatic results. For example, there will be a rise of disruptive technology in Africa that will aid clean water projects throughout the continent.

Transfer of Wealth 

Revelation regarding the transfer of wealth will also take on a new scale as those who have accumulated wealth begin to move into the seven mountains. This is already happening in a covert way and there will be surprise “take-overs” of some major media outlets - from news magazines, newspapers and television outlets.

New forms of philanthropy will arise and believers will burst to the top of their mountains almost out of nowhere.

Many Josephs are coming to the end of their testing. There is a linking of funding from Asia to the right people in other nations who will strategically channel the funds.

Medical inventions will also come forth that will bring both healing to many and finances into the business sector.

God is going to increasingly reveal new disruptive technological innovation to kingdom minded marketplace leaders, which will release wealth. Coupled with this wealth creation, new economic strategies for the elimination of systemic poverty will be voiced by many in the Christian business community.

Words for Nations 

Middle East 

Israel

There is a coming move of God among the children and youth in Israel. We felt that the Lord has allowed the situation with Iran to continue for a season to cause an awakening in Israel.

Islam

A continued division between the Sunni and Shia denominations of Islam will escalate. This division will give a remarkable open door for the gospel to be spread by the Church in the Middle East as the contrast between light and dark, Jesus and Islam, is going to be seen. The prayer movement of Isaiah 19 will emerge in a stronger way than ever before.

Large numbers of Muslims are both coming and going to come to the Lord. There are 22 new houses of prayer in Egypt.

A warning was given that a drought is coming to both the Euphrates and the Nile so prayer is needed.

Iran

Iran’s nuclear power is like a Tower of Babel that will eventually topple.

Syria, Lebanon, Northern Iraq 

Beauty for ashes is coming for the people of God in this region. Little children will have visitations from God, even in the refugee camps.

Egypt

We see a continued shaking for a season but this will cause the old worship structures to begin to topple. These will occur in “suddenlies.” It is important to align with Egypt in prayer as this strategic nation will become a shining light for the Lord and “out of Egypt” will come a great move of God that will impact the nations of the earth.

Europe

An awakening movement is beginning to ignite Europe. France, as mentioned earlier, is stirring to awaken. The wells of revival in Wales, Scotland, and Ireland will re-open and this will cause England to look and see what God is doing and be impacted by their moves of God.

Netherlands

A new generation of Abraham Kuypers is going to touch this nation and the Netherlands will arise to a new position of authority. There is an admonition to the Church to come into a new level of unity and the love of the brethren. Satan will try to split the Body of Christ wide open and stop the nation from moving to this level of authority, so prayer is needed.

Asia 

China

China will continue to increase. The one-child policy will continue to crumble and its end will signal a new season of fruitfulness upon the whole continent.

University campuses will be touched by the power of God across China.

Japan

There is a new generation of Japanese leaders who are going to be passionate to see their nation touched by the power of God. Watch and see them arise and even impact the international scene.

Korea

The Church that has plateaued in Korea will begin to grow. Evangelists will come to the front. The film and music industry will experience a powerful moving of the Holy Spirit.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong must come to the forefront concerning finances and economic strategies that will impact the world.

Mongolia

Look to see this nation burst upon the scene in influence across all the face of the earth.

Rim of Fire Nations

The nations known as “Rim of Fire” or “Ring of Fire” will become ablaze for God. The Philippines, Indonesia, and other islands of the sea will “erupt” with a move of God. It is harvest time. This, of course, will take place over differing periods of time.

The House of Prayer movement from Indonesia will send missionaries across the Middle East and the face of the earth in such closed areas as North Korea and God will give supernatural favor to these “prayer missionaries.”

Brazil 

Things will continue to shake but with these shakings the Church is going to arise and impact the whole nation in many levels of society.

The Mediterranean Region

Greece is going to arise out of its intense shakings as the power of the prince of Greece is being broken and the prayers of the saints for this historic and important nation are manifested.

Many Mediterranean areas will begin to experience sparks that will become flames of fire. It is critical to pray for protection against terrorism concerning the sea borders in the Mediterranean.
