This is an abridgement of what the Lord has revealed to me personally. If He allows me to subsequently, I will dive deeper into some of the details – let me speak only when He tells me, so I may be found trustworthy to carry His secrets. What I’m about to share is just a small puzzle piece (no one person has the full picture), so do search out what He’s been saying to others (especially the prophets + apostles) to get a fuller picture of what’s on His heart for this year!

Beloved, this is the year to run with the horses.
Those who wait on Me and remain faithful to obey Me will soar. They will accomplish more in this year than any other year before.
Now is the time for the mature children to prevail. My tenacious ones who don’t give up, who persist. The faithful ones who set their face toward the goal and do not relent till it comes to pass.
This is the hour for the warrior spirit to arise, the sons of the Lion of Judah! This is what I’m doing in the 3 groups of warriors:
- READY. These are the prepared warriors who’ve been faithful and obedient through My processes in their lives. I am going to launch them like a missile into enemy territory. They will be sent with My presence and power to bring light to the darkness. They have been faithful with what I’ve given them, and I am about to give them so much more.
- REST. These are the weary/wounded warriors who’ve been in the battlefield. I am going to call them tenderly to rest in Me. As they sit at My feet, their strength will be restored. But more than that, they will begin to receive much new revelation that they will then take back to the people. Let them come and sit with Me awhile.
- RECALIBRATE. These are the warriors who are lost or wandered off the path. I am going to interrupt their journey and bring them back to My plans for them. They will experience Hosea 2. I will speak to them tenderly, break off the things that hinder, and give them a new heart and a new mind. I will pursue them; no one is too far gone that My love cannot find.
This is the year to excel and ascend. Cultivate that spirit of excellence. Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation. Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life (Philippians 2).
I will grow your influence and enlarge your territory. Abide in Me, let Me abide in you. Only with My presence will you produce fruit that lasts.
This is the year for the workers in the field, the ones who have pledged their allegiance to the Lord of hosts and served Him with unwavering resolve. I will come and be with My faithful servants, and I will empower them to do far greater things than they could’ve ever imagined.
This is the year that My five-fold must come further together in unity. Team work and brotherly love is needed. The coming harvest is going to be so great that no one man can do it alone. Gone are the days of the Christian Superstars — I am doing away with the “one man” ministry. These are the days of the ministry of the saints, My sons and daughters who seek My kingdom and not their glory.
This is the year that the nameless, faceless, rank-less, army of the Lord will be raised up. A company of people who fear only the Lord, whose eyes look only to Him, and who march in unity without breaking rank. Remove pride that exalts itself against Me. Remove the human wisdom that rises up against My wisdom. For My ways are above your ways, My thoughts are higher than your thoughts.
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall. Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles. They shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40)
