I have been listening to what the Spirit is saying about this year 5778 and putting the various aspects into a cohesive picture since August. I am sure He will unveil more as the year goes by, but I would like to share the puzzle pieces I am hearing so far.
On the 2nd day of Rosh Hashanah, I had a dream in which I was informed that Christine Aguilera had fired all her coaches. As I was told this, I saw her playing tennis. When I awoke, I was a bit puzzled as I neither listen to her music, nor follow her activities, and she is a singer, not a tennis player. As I prayed about it, the Lord showed me that in the dream she represents those in the Church system who have been performing and releasing a sound which has been shaped by those who guide or teach them, the coaches so to speak. These coaches want her music to make money and therefore what she releases must be trendy and appeal to the masses. Playing tennis refers to playing the game. It involves volleys with an opponent, but is played within a fenced area. The coach watches every move.
Christine means ‘dedicated follower of Christ’ and Aguilera means ‘place of eagles’. So her whole name depicts someone intended to be following the direction of Christ, rather than coaches, and dwelling in the place where the eagles live!
The Lord began to speak to me that this year 5778 is the year in which the controlling voices with agendas of their own, and the self-serving guides which have the ear of the Bride, are going to be given notice. And it is the Bride herself, the one who is intended to be dwelling with the eagles, that is going to fire her coaches herself. She is going to stop playing the game and performing for others and she is going to only release the sound that Christ wants her to release in the place she was destined to dwell.
The woman in Revelation 12 who flees to a place where she is fed on fresh meat and kept safe for 3 and 1/2 years is carried on eagles wings!! She is delivered from the dragon and preserved and protected. The year 5778 is the year of fleeing from the flood of the dragon.
The pattern of God carrying His people on eagle’s wings is found early on. We first hear about the wings of this Great Eagle in Deuteronomy 32:
9 For the Lord’s portion is His people; Jacob (Israel) is the lot of His inheritance.
10 He found him in a desert land, in the howling void of the wilderness; He kept circling around him, He scanned him [penetratingly], He kept him as the pupil of His eye.
11 As an eagle that stirs up her nest, that flutters over her young, He spread abroad His wings and He took them, He bore them on His pinions.
12 So the Lord alone led him; there was no foreign god with Him.
13 He made Israel ride on the high places of the earth, and he ate the increase of the field; and He made him suck honey out of the rock and oil out of the flinty rock. (Deuteronomy 32:9)
And once again, we see the Lord providing wings to those who are His portion, to carry them to safety, in Revelation 12, as destruction is sent their way.
What else does the number 5778 speak of? Thanks to science, we know that the temperature of the surface of the sun is 5778 degrees. In this year 5778, the Sun of Righteousness is rising with healing in his wings for those who fear His name, during the day that burns like an oven. Once again, the mention of wings, but this time it is a reference to the fringed hem of the Bridegroom’s prayer shawl, as He envelops His Bride at their wedding, while they say their vows. Remember that one of the words used for ‘body’ in Luke 17 comes from a root, meaning ‘to heal’. For those who fear the Lord, healing is coming and it is part of the Bride’s inheritance from her husband, released as they become one.
The Lord is about to give hidden manna and feed the woman in the wilderness with meat or bread. She is carried on a giant eagle’s wings to the place where the eagles gather, the place of strong meat, as opposed to the milk of the Word.
During Tabernacles, my husband and I went camping with friends. We were transported in their vehicle and slept in a compartment of their tent. They paid all the camping costs and all we had to bring was our own meat and bed linen. The site was next to a broad river and fishermen stood along the banks (which reminded me of Ezekiel 47). While I was fellowshipping with the Lord at the river edge, He pointed out that we were enacting a living parable of Rev 12 and place prepared. He said,
“Remember you only had to bring your own meat and bed linen. That is how it will be in the 3 and 1/2 years. There is a place prepared for you, a shelter provided for you, but each one will carry meat within them and feed one another on the revelation of Christ they carry within. This is how you will be fed and watered in those days after fleeing from the dragon, on the living water and meat within the other eagles who gather. It is meat reserved for such a time as this, just as there was manna stored up in the golden jar within the ark of My presence, so too the vessels of gold will nourish many with the contents of their hearts, hidden manna for such a time as this.”
Remember also the dragon releases a flood to destroy the woman. It comes out of his mouth, depicting a release of fiery words intended to destroy, words of death and destruction. Remember Christine Aguilera and the sound which her coaches wanted her to release. I suspect the flood from the dragon’s mouth will come forth from the mouth of vessels within the ranks of the organized Church system after the woman, the dedicated follower of Christ alone, abandons her coaches and moves toward the gathering place of the eagles to feast on true meat.

“Let me go out on a limb a little bit and prophesy. I see the time coming when all the holy men whose eyes have been opened by the Holy Spirit will desert worldly Evangelicalism, one by one. The house (institutional Christianity) will be left desolate and there will not be a man of God, a man in whom the Holy Spirit dwells, left among them.”
So, to summarize, the year 5778 will see the separation and removal of the remnant from the defiled courts of modern-day institutional Christianity. It is the year when a man’s enemies will be revealed as members of his own household; when the covers are drawn back and the tares sown by the enemy openly display their evil fruit right in the walls of the Church system. It is the year when the the harlot bride brazenly displays herself within the church walls; the year when the manchild will be fully brought forth and brought close to the throne of God, releasing the woman to flee from the face of the dragon into the place prepared for her. It is the year of the firing of the false prophets and performance oriented teachers and the moving toward the place of the gathering bond-slave eagles, to share in the meat that each carries within them. It is the year of miraculous provision and protection, the year of being borne on the wings of our giant eagle. It is the year when we will see the wicked destroyed by the flood of perversion from the dragon’s mouth and the righteous brought through it safely, by being in the shelter of the Most High.
It is the year of separation and of sealing; the year of identifying which army we are truly a part of, the sons of Zion or the sons of Greece; the year of revealing what name is upon our foreheads.
