By putting together recent prophetic revelations, we get a clearer picture showing 2017 is a major turning point in history. Big changes are coming upon the world, resulting in increased light and darkness at the same time. Here are four recent examples.
The Final Jubilee:
There are now about sixteen weeks remaining in the Hebrew calendar year 5777, ending at sunset on Wednesday, September 20. I don’t normally pay much attention to the Hebrew calendar, but I believe this year is more significant than others because it’s a jubilee year. Ancient Israel was commanded by God to observe a jubilee once every fifty years as a time when all property was returned to its’ rightful owners, debts were forgiven and slaves were released. (Leviticus 25:10-14)
So, jubilees were ordained by God as turning points, but I believe this jubilee is even more significant than previous jubilees because it is the final one before the Lord Jesus returns. There are plenty of signs supporting that timeline, but that goes beyond the scope of this post.
Like the ancient jubilees, I believe property is now being returned to its’ rightful owners. Many have sown seeds in the past without seeing the harvest, but God is balancing every account and sending the harvest due to each person, according to what they have sown, even from many years past, which explains why He told Joe Joe Dawson, “This is the great catch-up season. I am about to catch some people up.” (See the complete post)
Like the ancient jubilees, we are being re-positioned for the new season ahead so we can carry out our future assignments. The hindrances that were previously used to prepare us, must now be removed, including burdensome financial lack and debts. I believe God is moving in the lives of His righteous remnant this year to remove anything that hinders us from completing our missions.
The Mighty Fall Begins This Fall:
For the righteous, this jubilee year marks a turn for the better because of the good seeds they have sown, but for the unrighteous, it marks a turn for the worse because of the bad seeds they have sown. In each case, the harvest comes in direct proportion to each person’s sowing because whatever a man sows, that will he also reap. (Galatians 6:7) Those who have faithfully sown into God’s kingdom in the past can expect to see Him moving in their behalf to bring forth their harvest.
Bringing full compensation to everyone in the same season is an enormous job of mind boggling proportions, so it makes sense that a shaking in our financial system begins this fall. That prophetic warning was revealed to Rachel Baxter last month.
“The fall is coming this fall. Yes, I say it. This fall the mighty fall will begin in earnest and there will be no slowing, just as I have said through My prophets for thousands of years (Isaiah 13), it will happen.” (See the complete post)
The jubilee year appears to be ushering in the fall in the markets because it happens during the fall season, which begins on September 22, just two days after the end of the jubilee year. It appears to be a continuation of the harvest, repaying what is due to each one, profits for some and losses for others.
Time for the Gospel of the Kingdom:
In my previous post, I shared a prophetic word from Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj in which God revealed to him the time has come for the gospel of the Kingdom to be preached. Sundar saw 2017 is the year when the Church turns around, like an airplane turning to align with the runway in preparation for takeoff.
‘The time has now come,’ the Lord very strongly commanded me, ‘for the gospel of the Kingdom to be preached.’ It is to announce the coming of God’s Kingdom with power to judge (Jude 14-16). The Lord Jesus significantly said that when the gospel of the kingdom is preached, then the end will come (Matt 24:14). That is the last sign—completion of fullness, that will take place before the coming of the King Jesus Christ. (See the complete post)
As I shared in another previous post, a mighty outpouring of God’s presence is coming in 2020, but He won’t manifest His presence among us unless we first turn away from all unrighteousness. It is only the righteous who will behold His face (Psalm 11:7 and 17:15a) and dwell in His presence. (Psalm 140:13) A deeper level of conviction and repentance must come, so we can become the Church without spot or wrinkle, ready for the Lord’s return. (Ephesians 5:27) Righteousness must become the cry of our heart as we seek it first above all else (Matthew 6:33), but that won’t happen unless we first shift the focus of our message by proclaiming it, prophesying it, and demonstrating it to the world.
So we have a long way to go and just three years to prepare. Just like Sundar was told, the time has now come to proclaim the true gospel of the kingdom because the true gospel brings conviction. Even though it’s the same message proclaimed by the Lord Jesus during His earthly ministry, the Church today has largely abandoned it. Repentance has become like a dirty word, hardly ever mentioned in our seeker-friendly mega-churches today.
Sundar saw the shift begins this year, which is another sign revealing 2017 is a significant turning point, turning the page to begin the final chapter of this present age. The Church will now begin to usher in a new age of everlasting righteousness. (Daniel 9:24)
Darkness Falls on Israel:
In January 2017, Ann Davis received an amazing prophetic dream in which the enemy’s secret plans for Israel were revealed to her. She saw the hidden agenda behind the January 15 Paris Peace Conference where seventy nations came together, supposedly to discuss peace in the Middle East, but hid their true agenda, their evil plans to betray Israel by dividing their land, including Jerusalem, to create a new nation of Palestine within Israel’s borders. Fernanda saw the impact of their secret agreement would cause a major turning point in world history. (See the complete post)
When the news reports following the Paris meetings did not report any dark sinister plans, many dismissed her prophetic warning and assumed all was well. However, things are not always what they appear to be. God gives us insights into the unseen realm so we don’t have to be fooled by what we see and hear with our physical eyes and ears. He exposes the schemes of the evil one so we can see trouble coming in advance.
Fernanda saw severe consequences for each of the seventy nations who participated, but especially for the primary instigator, the United States. As Israel’s land is divided, so our land will be divided. As Israel suffers great losses in lives and possessions, so will we.
The world has not yet seen the true impact of the 2017 Paris Conference, but Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj saw it, confirming what Fernanda saw. He shares the following testimony of how God revealed to him what is coming soon in Israel.
“On April 20, 2014, as I was fasting and praying, as the angel Gabriel appeared to the prophet Daniel, the angel Michael visited me. He had a scroll in his hand. When he unfurled the scroll, I saw the number 1948 and 1967 written on it. The Archangel Michael explained that significant events took place in God’s land and among God’s people in those two years. When he said that I understood what happened. In 1948, Israel got her independence. And as soon as she became an independent state she faced a war — The War of Independence in 1948.
In 1967, Israel fought another war, called The Six Days’ War. During the Six Days War, she regained the many lands — Golan Heights and West Bank, all parts of original Samaria. Most importantly they regained East Jerusalem. For the first time in 2000 years, Jerusalem that was divided into East and West was finally reunited as one. The Israeli government then announced that Jerusalem will be the indivisible eternal capital of the state of Israel.
Below the two years—1948 and 1967, I saw the year 2017 written. Seeing the bemused look on my face, Michael, the great prince of Israel said, “Another major war is planned. A major change and shift in government and land is coming.”
He did not specifically say it will happen in 2017, but said that it is coming.
On March 11, 2015, while I was waiting on God I had a heavenly experience. I saw myself in heaven standing before the Lord Jesus Christ. I also saw two saints standing together with the Lord Jesus. One I recognized them as the prophets Moses and Jeremiah. After speaking to me about some matters, the Lord Jesus turned to the prophet Jeremiah and said, “Teach him about the 70 years.”
The prophet Jeremiah then came near me and said, ‘The 70 years in the history of Israel is very significant. There is going to come a turning point in the history of Israel in the year 2017.’ He further said, ‘2017 will be the 70th year since the formation of the state of Israel.’
I was quite dumbfounded when this was said. In my finite mind, I knew Israel gained independence in 1948. Adding 70 years to it will bring it to the year 2018 rather than 2017. So, very respectfully I asked the saint Jeremiah about this.
He answered kindly, ‘No, you are wrong. The count should be from the time when the covenant was first signed for the formation of the state of Israel.’
A little research made me realized that the State of Israel was first planned and signed by the members of the United Nations on November 29, 1947. So, adding 70 to 1947 equals 2017. Oops!
So, what does all this mean to Israel? A 70-year cycle is ending. So, what will befall Israel and the nations of the world when this covenant of 70 years ends? Like the earlier prophecy of Jeremiah 25:11, Israel will go through another period of captivity. Let us read what the prophet Jeremiah prophesied about it.
Ask now, and see, whether a man is ever in labor with child? So why do I see every man with his hands on his loins like a woman in labor, and all faces turned pale? Alas! For that day is great, so that none is like it; And it is the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it. (Jeremiah 30:6-7)
“Jacob” in this Scripture signifies the nation of Israel. She will go through trouble where she will be in a predicament — in a state of loss, like no one to help her. She will be forsaken by all, even her trusted allies will forsake her. Those who are closest to her — her closest friends — politically, even they will forsake her. She will be all alone, forsaken by all. She will even think, that God has forsaken her.
On December 23, 2016, the United Nations passed a resolution to divide Israel into two states — the State of Israel and the Palestinian State. Interestingly, such a two-state division was originally planned on November 29, 1947 by the United Nations itself. Somehow for the last 70 years this was not really carried out in practice. Now after 70 years, on December 23, 2016, the United Nations Security Council meeting passed a resolution that in 2017, Israel should be divided into two: Palestinian State and the State of Israel.
According to the United Nations resolution, even the city of Jerusalem will be divided into East Jerusalem, the new capital of the Palestinian State and West Jerusalem, being the capital of the State of Israel.
Such a thing was prophesied thousands of years ago by the prophet Zechariah.
12 Then the angel of the Lord said, “O Lord of hosts, how long will You have no compassion for Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, with which You have been indignant these seventy years?”
13 The Lord answered the angel who was speaking with me with gracious words, comforting words.
14 So the angel who was speaking with me said to me, “Proclaim, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, “I am exceedingly jealous for Jerusalem and Zion.
15 But I am very angry with the nations who are at ease; for while I was only a little angry, they furthered the disaster.”
16 Therefore thus says the Lord, “I will return to Jerusalem with compassion; My house will be built in it,” declares the Lord of hosts, “and a measuring line will be stretched over Jerusalem.”’ (Zechariah 1:12-16)
Verse 16 says the land will be divided and a line will be drawn in Jerusalem. How amazing and how sad! As the Lord Jesus Christ was whipped 39 times, when this partition is carried out, it will be like Israel is beaten with stripes. As the robe of the Lord Jesus was parted by the Roman soldiers, so will the land be divided (Matt 27:35; John 19:24).
On December 25, 2016, as I was waiting before the Lord at 3 PM, the Word of the Lord came unto me, “New skin eating disease will break out upon western countries.”
In a vision, I saw that disease. A kind-of flesh-eating disease comes upon the surface layer of the human skin. “It will break out upon western countries as a punishment for touching the apple of God’s eye,” the Lord continued.
I wondered why the western nations would come against Israel. Sometime in December 2016, a 70-nation conference was planned to be held in 2017 to debate on the Palestinian issue. On January 15, 2017, the United Nations organized a conference where representatives from 70 nations met to sign an anti-Israel agreement in Paris, France. This conference was masterminded by the United States. John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, attended the Paris conference. The former US President, Mr. Hussein Obama, played a central role in unifying the 70 nations against Israel.
Aha, again the number 70! 70 nations gathered together to pass a resolution to create a Palestinian State. That resolution is to force Israel to be divided. The 70 countries have decided to stress that they won’t recognize any changes that Israel has made to her borders after the June 1967 war. They have also decided and passed a resolution that they are not going to recognize the city of Jerusalem.
The meeting in Paris comes after the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 2334, declaring it illegal for Jews to live in Judea, Samaria, the Golan, and Hebron. The resolution also grants a religious monopoly on the Temple Mount and the Western Wall to Islam. This again is another fulfilment of the prophecy in Book of Zechariah:
2 “Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah.
3 It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it. (Zechariah 12:2-3)
Now please look at verse 3 where it says: “And in that day.” Which day? January 15, 2017, where 70 nations are gathered in Paris, France.
On January 5, 2017, at 1:30 PM, I was fasting and praying together with some of our staff members for seven days. We were all united with one heart and one mind to worship the Lord when suddenly my spiritual eyes were opened and I saw two saints from heaven enter into the prayer hall. I recognized them as the saints Haggai and Zechariah. Interestingly, the Bible says that even the prophets Haggai and Zechariah were captives during the 70 years captivity of Israel in Babylon (Ezra 5:2).
They came near to me and said, “The anger of the Lord will manifest. When the Lord Jesus was crucified, there was an earthquake. Likewise, earthquakes and the sword of the Lord will manifest in those 70 nations. Their children will be killed, their youths’ dead bodies will lie in the streets. Their women’s wombs will be closed.”
Then with sadness they said, “Rachel is standing in the streets and weeping” (Jeremiah 31:15; Matt 2:18).
A certain Jewish spiritual tradition says that when the little children, two years old and below, toddlers were killed for the Lord Jesus, some saintly rabbis saw the spirit of Rachel standing in the streets and weeping. One more time she will weep.
And the saints also said, “Flood will overflow in these nations, and plagues will spread. The sword of the Lord will be lifted in those nations. A shaking will come upon each of the 70 nations. Destructions and disasters will come upon them.”
And then with sadness they said, “This is a dark season in the history of Israel.” (See the complete May 2017 newsletter)
2017 is a turning point for the righteous remnant as many will see heavy yokes lifted off in this year of jubilee. God is transitioning His people out of training and re-positioning them into their end-time assignments.
2017 is a turning point for the unrighteous as global financial markets begin to unravel. The shaking that begins this fall will eventually shake the foundations of everyone who puts their trust in anything besides God, which will lead the greatest harvest of souls in history in the years ahead.
2017 is a turning point for the message of the gospel, ushering in a new emphasis on righteousness, which will cause the light of God to arise on His people so He can display His glory to the world. (Isaiah 60:1-5)
2017 is a turning point for Israel as they enter the greatest trouble in their seventy-year history. The darkness falling on them this year eventually leads to the 42-month tribulation, the time of Jacob’s trouble.
