2017 is the Year of Restoration

On January 1 2017, we returned from the New Year Conference at MorningStar, Fort Mill, SC. All weekend, I kept dreaming about people receiving the restoration of homes, finances, business, health and ministries.

On Yom Kippur, we were in Jerusalem and the Lord told me to call the Hebrew year 5777 and 2017 “The Year of Restoration.” In the Hebrew calendar this is the year of Jubilee when all inheritances are returned and people are set free from everything which has bound them since the last Jubilee. The Lord was promising to make it happen and He showed me over and over in these dreams that restoration will come as the supernatural intervention of the Lord.

Are you ready for it? Begin now to put your faith behind the promises of the Lord and make powerful decrees to bring them into manifestation. Amen?

This morning our worship room was filled with a cloud of His presence. It was awesome and I could feel the power of that presence flowing through my body. I went face down before the Lord covered with my prayer shawl. I prayed in English and then I prayed in the Spirit with a renewed power and spiritual energy.

As I was praying in the Spirit, I heard the Lord say, “I will manifest my glory to many people this year!”

I was lifted up into His Presence and began to receive a series of visions of His glory manifesting in many different places. People who operate only in the natural will not understand it. They will be very confused by what the Lord is releasing. The people led by the Spirit will see and know the powerful glory presence of the Lord. I thought about the promise in Habakkuk 2:14, “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. Are you ready to receive and walk in these two powerful promises of the Lord?

Now is the time to prepare yourself for the manifestation of His promises. Remember Jude 1:20, “But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.”

May your faith grow strong and may your spiritual eyes and ears be open to receive everything the Lord is releasing in this year of Jubilee!

As Diana said… regardless of whether it is in fact a jubilee year, regardless of whether judgement is coming to the ungodly and to the world systems, regardless of whether famine or calamity is coming… I am a daughter of the KING. As a young widow, He has shown himself to be my Father, my husband, and my very present help in time of trouble. i do expect blessing in my life, regardless of what is happening around me. If my earthly husband was upset with his employees in his company, would he come home and give the same correction to me that was due to them? I think that is where so many are becoming confused about what seems to be conflicting prophecies. If I am HIS, if I am covered by His blood, if I am walking in the Spirit to the best of my knowledge, if I am under His wing, I am not under judgement. I am not under the wrath of God. I still need to prepare as He is showing me, primarily to be ready to show His glory and meet the physical needs of others, which means I can count on Him to also supply the provision to do that (financial blessing as well). The prophecies DO fit together. There are 2 different groups that they address. I am His. He will care for me even more completely than my earthly husband did and He has prepared me for over a decade for such a time as this.

Susie – I am a single woman as well. The Lord gave me Isaiah 54:5…he told me he is my husband and he has NEVER let me down. My old car always makes it, if I am laid off I find a job faster than others, and my travels are always safe!!! I always have enough to bless others. What a blessing to have The King Lord Jesus take care of me!!!!

Awesome and accurate response Susie! The Holy Spirit has been speaking to me over the past few years that in the midst of great darkness and chaos and shaking we are His and He has us….we have a great responsibility during this time because as the kingdom of this world is being shaken the kingdom of God will be established and we are to be involved with the gifts, talents, skills, resources and complete surrender of our lives for that purpose. Many blessings!!

Yes, Michael, and in saying “I will still be blessed”, does not mean I am one who thinks all is well now with the US change of leadership or that prosperity and peace are on the way to our “country”. He has shown me for over a year to build a substantial food pantry as well as preparing for other physical needs and to be ready for complete upheaval. Doing that kind of preparation is completely out of my normal behavior or thinking.

He had me meditating on Malachi 3 last week. I believe all of it applies, but particularly the last 2 verses which end the old testament..

Malachi 3:17-18 7 “They shall be mine, says the Lord of hosts, in the day when I make up my treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him. 18 Then once more you shall see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve him.

‘then once more you shall see..”

He has always shown a distinction between the righteous and the wicked, and the same will be true this time.

Neville Johnson’s news letter:
http://www.lwf.torqt.net/pdf/OurFinetsHour/Our_Finest_Hour_Vol2_1.pdf

A shift in power
In this new season we are going to see a very
real shift in power. Power struggles among
leadership in governments and nations will
escalate. There will be struggle in the UN as
Barrack Obama seeks to hold a controlling
position the UN, he along with the Clintons will
try to manipulate the situation in order to gain
a controlling influence in the UN. This would
not be good for Israel as both the Obamas
and the Clintons are very anti-Israel. However
Donald Trump will be a friend to Israel.
The power struggles in Europe are being
orchestrated by four powerful fallen angels.
Nevertheless God is not just powerful He is
all Powerful. As the antichrist spirit continues
to manipulate European Governments the
battle there will continue.
The other side of the coin is this. God is about
to empower the true Church with such
authority that has never been seen in the
Church eclipsing even what the early Church
experienced, in fact seven times greater.
way by which ye must go: for ye have not
passed this way heretofore.
And Joshua said unto the people,
Sanctify
yourselves: for tomorrow the LORD will do
wonders among you.
Josh 3:4-5

As I was reading this, the song “This is What You Do”, by Bethel Music and William Matthews, was playing, but I wasn’t paying attention to the music playing, since I was reading. As I was reading the following paragraph, I felt unsure of myself, and my ability to “see” the powerful glory presence of the Lord: I was lifted up into His Presence and began to receive a series of visions of His glory manifesting in many different places. People who operate only in the natural will not understand it. They will be very confused by what the Lord is releasing. The people led by the Spirit will see and know the powerful glory presence of the Lord. I thought about the promise in Habakkuk 2:14, “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. Are you ready to receive and walk in these two powerful promises of the Lord? I felt in my heart like this wasn’t really for me, even though, in my head I knew that it was because the Lord has spoken to me about this before. This lack of expectation made me uncomfortable, so I began to pray that the Lord would help me push past these feelings and to become expectant. As I was praying this, the lyrics which were playing at that moment caught my attention. This is what was being sung: It’s a new season, It’s a new season, The old has passed away The old has passed away New life is coming out, New life is coming forth even now ‘Cause it’s a new season, It’s a new time for you, ‘Cause He makes us come alive He makes us come alive He makes us come alive He… Read more »

Thank you so much for posting this. For several years, I have felt tossed aside after following the Lord to the best of my ability. I waas ministering and walking in the Spirit, hearing His voice and seeing Him move powerfully. Then, one day it all broke. Not only was I abruptly moved from my position, I ceased hearing the Lord easily … yet I couldn’t figure out what I had done wrong. For years, I have not heard Him or walked in His presence and power as I desire, but I still seek Him and love Him. Where else would I go? Who is like our God?

I have been hearing from multiple places that 2017 is a year of restoration and renewal. All I wish is to walk in the manifest presence of God again and do His will. I still don’t know why four years passed by without seeming to hear Him or feel His presence as I was used to, but I trust Him, that He will restore me to His presence soon. Thank you–and thank you Jesus.

For anyone reading this, please ask God to give me discernment, to sense His truth and be filled with His Spirit again. Thank you.

Wow, I will pray for you, that the Lord would bring you back to that special place where you belong, close to His heart. I know the Lord does this for good reasons, but it really is torturous to go through periods of time where the Lord doesn’t let you feel Him, after having consistently experienced the way His presence makes you feel – comforted and loved. All I can say is that the Lord knows what it feels like, and He Himself cried out to His Father saying, “My God, My God! Why have You forsaken Me?!

God bless

Amen and Amen…Thankyou Pastor Durham for this word.decree and declare for yourselves the year of jubilee.God’s ways are not man’s nor his thoughts.He brings judgement and justice ,simultaneously….While the earth grows darker and gross darkness on the people, God’s people will arise and shine.Why do you long for the Day of the Lord? Why do so many long for the church to go to the woodshed?Judgement is here indeed and many will suffer,but do we not long for our homes to be restored, our children,to be healed,to have financial aid to be able to help those when the storms come…when children have no homes,widows have Noone to help them…..can we not believe in the goodness of the Lord along side of his justice and judgement…..Do we all truly want the Lord to hand out to us individually what we deserve..
There was a Goshen in Egypt…
Let us not walk according to the knowledge of good and evil,but according to the Word of God…let us ask him to teach us his Way..

I would like to believe this is true. But I’ve never understood the Jubilee thing. It’s exclusively Jewish. I also do not believe it’s the year 5777 for how could the end times be here if it were not much, much closer to 5999…….I’m not putting this word off or down…….I’m just struggling to find enough faith and hope to believe it in light of currently events and expected Prophetic words……Shalom Army.

Yep, today’s society lives on debt/credit. If there’s no debt, there’s no credit. I’ve heard >50% of households receive money (credit) from the govt. Govts can’t give credit w/o issuing debt, as taxes only support less than half of govt expenditures. If debts get cancelled, credit dries up, and the economy will grind down. If you aren’t a hunter/gatherer/farmer/rancher you may not enjoy a jubilee. At the grocery store, I see a lot of govt plastic (food cards). If you heard a jubilee was coming, would you sell anything for something that was fixin to be worthless? If you were a businessman, say you owned a gas station, and there was a surprise announcement of a jubilee and all the money you had received in credit card sales was now worthless, would you still accept credit cards during this ‘year of jubilee’?
Prepare to give stuff away because there will be needy people who are destitute and will have nothing with which to buy. We will once again totally need Yehoshua to multiply our loaves/fishes to feed the thousands, hundreds, and dozens.

And about it being ‘exclusively Jewish’, Yehoshua explicitly stated “I did not come to abolish the law”; and furthermore identified those who love Him as the ones who “have my commandments and keep them”, therefore, it would seem proper to study Torah and try to keep it. Churchgoers kinda know not to kill or cheat, etc, but they so readily disregard the Sabbath – and God said it was Holy to Him! And this ought to be the easiest to keep! It’s because of the culture of which we are a part.

I can see that perhaps you’re of the SDA persuasion so I’ll not take this up with you other than to say, that the cohesive understanding of property rights/debts and exercise thereof was exclusively for when the Children of Israel were doing it right within their own Covenant Land……(when they were following the Old Testament manner of life)……..the New Testament does not cover it, affirm it, bring it up, nor is it seen in the dealings or history of the 1st Century or early church. Nor was it practiced by the early church in historical records……I think it’s a Christian wannabe doctrine……to get relief……but I don’t think it’s biblical to expect the Jubilee from God or man…….and as far as knowing what Covenant were in……..I don’t think it’s wise to pick and choose from what’s left of the Old Testament that can still be adhered to……the New Testament is a such a much higher standard of living in every way. Shalom to you..

I doubt its actually 5777. It’s just a 12th century Maimonides creation from his best estimation. The dating is flawed, just like orthodox jewish calendar, and just liked the Jewish Talmud. A flaw in a long line of flaws. There are dates all over the map for when God created the earth from researchers over the elapsed millenia…everything from 6000 BC to 3000BC’sh. There are simply some gaps/fuzzyness in the bible chronology that leave a person to interpret/guess/estimate which is why there is so much controversy. Personally, I tend to think Petavius’s or Biblianders’s dates are likely the closest to the ballpark.

The Jewish year begins in the Fall, so it includes part of 2016 and part of 2017. A few years back I noticed in my daughters history book that the Catholic Church had a Jubilee fund raiser in 1517. I already knew about 1917, Balfour Declaration, Russian Revolution (begin. of NWO) and 1967, Jerusalem’s return to Israel. That’s good enough for me. Oh yea, there is also the Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel prophesy of the 12th century as reported in the Israel Today Magazine. Also, the year 5777 has a nice ring to it! The seminary scholars have never come to any agreement on the year and whether the Jubilee occurs every 50 years or every 49 years, but what to the cemit…seminary scholars know anyway?

Bob Adolph

January 13, 2017 3:11 PM

HAO, some scholars say the 50th year is also the first year of the next 50. I am no expert but I don’t think that is very logical. The whole number system is based on tens, hundreds which makes more sense to me and so two 50’s = 100. I have always thought 1917 was very important because of the Balfour Declaration and here we are 100 years later with all the signs that it will be an explosive year, even if we view most of it from Heaven. It is no small thing that the Russian Revolution also occurred in late 1917 because it was the dramatic start of the NWO, the world communistic revolution. One of the first things Lenin and Trotsky did was close all the churches and kill or send all the priests to the archipelago. It was anti-Christ from day one. Marx wrote the book. Then the Jews receiving Jerusalem in 1967 was HUGE. That is why splitting Jerusalem and Israel in two days is HUGE. But not that much buzz about it!? Stan Johnson of the Prophesy Club has spent three days on it this week and made positive reference to Jame’s podcast on the subject. But where’s the buzz? I’ve got my bags packed.

Join the discussion Bob, the scripture, studies and leading of my heart agree the 50th year of Jubilee is the first year of the next 7 years. As with you, my spiritual bags (not baggage) are packed as we see the mysteries of many books of the Old Testament coming to life in this generation. MEM, I understand the verse as written and it makes sense to me while the 49 does not. I’ve read both sides of the interpretation.

January 13, 2017 11:48 PM

HAO, if the Jubilee year is the first year of the next seven then it’s not one Jubilee between 1917 and 1967 but 51 years. Same with 2017. 1917 + 49 + 49 = 2015. My guess is the Jubilee year has it’s own year and is not part of the seven years before it or following it. Is this contrary to your reading of the scripture?

January 14, 2017 11:17 PM

Join the discussion Bob, my understanding is that every 7 years is a Shemetah or Jubilee of release. I understand by the verses I gave you that 7×7=49 plus 1 is the Jubilee year. A Jubilee year only occurs every 50th following a 49. So, the 50th is actually included in the 1st of the next 7 which is the start of the building of years for the next Jubilee. Several books written on this and a whole lot more than we can chase here. But for me the easiest understanding are those 4-5 verses I mentioned above. Point of all this is the study of history reveals that God still follows this management of nations plan and causes an event of blessing or judgement to occur every 50 years. The blessing conditional verse and judgement conditional verse are in chapter 26. I think it is amazing.

HAO, please forgive me for being a nag but if the Jubilee year is also year one of the next 50 years then the Jubilees are actually every 49 years or 49 years apart. Yes? There is never a year that is only a fiftieth by itself?
So, October 15, 1917 and October 15, 2017 at not two Jubilees apart but are 2 Jubilees and 2 years apart? But this thinking is just one of the two schools of thought? Thanks for indulging me. GB.

Hao – Inclusive Reckoning, it is how counting in the bible done.

According to Leviticus 25: Sowing and Reaping is not allowed in the Jubilee year
In Leviticus 25:22 it says: “When you plant during the eighth year, you will eat from the old crop and will continue to eat from it until the harvest of the ninth year comes in.

The eighth year would be the fiftieth year, yet the verse expects them to plant during the eighth year, but planting is not allowed during the Jubilee year. I believe the only solution to reconcile all of Leviticus 25 is that if they are allowed to plant in the 50th/8th year, then the previous year, the 49th/7th year must be the jubilee. I speak this in terms of our modern western “exclusive reckoning”. However, in the context of Leviticus 25, the inclusively reckoned 50th translates to the exclusively reckoned 49th year in modern counting.

I dont see any other way to interpret the verse “when you plant during the eighth year”

Bob Adolph

January, 2017 / Tevet – Shevat, 5777
The Hebrew/Jewish year AM 5777 is a deficient year -12 months with a total of 353 days.
I thought this post was interesting because during our quiet time on the 1st, we felt the Lord say that “this will be a year of uncommon good”. Given the very difficult trials many Christians have passed through these past 15 years there is the idea that as with Paul, ‘the Lord will deliver us out of them all’, that He sees what He has formed in us, that He is moving on our behalf because that is what He does; He is a hard rock miner, it is He who has dug us from the pit, He is committed to offering man Life, and His goal is not necessarily that we do the purposes of God but that we become the purposes of God. I will never forget the rebuke, “Do you think it is unimportant where I take myself in you?”
Among climbers there is a term “always lengthen your stride”, and as I looked up words and meditated in 1 Peter 3 and Luke I think it provides direction for how we are to handle ourselves in this time.
To paraphrase – ‘Lengthen your stride as you see the day approach, in all holy busyness and behavior with reverent piety. Use diligence to be found in peace, without spot, and unblameable. Blessed is the servant who gives nourishment, wages and food in due season who when He comes finds so doing.
Be ready (fit, adjusted, prepared).’
