Prophetic Word for the Jewish New Year 5778

Shana Tova! [A good year] to you!


I wish to give you a warm welcome into the Jewish New Year and season of celebration, introspection and preparation for the new moves of God that are coming upon the earth! What an awesome time to be alive! Once again, Happy New Year to all Messianic Jews, and to everyone who carries the understanding of God’s Calendar in the church of Jesus Christ! From sunset of September 20th, through to 22nd September at sundown is the Jewish New Year, also known as Yom Teruah [Feast of Trumpets] or Rosh Hashanah [Head of the Year].


I wish to share with you the prophetic Word which God has given me for this New Year [5778] which He has brought us into [do take note that God follows the feasts days which He gave to His people Israel]. We [the rest of the world] follow the Gregorian calendar. There are 7 THINGS which the Lord has revealed to me are coming to His people during this New Year. Read on below as I share them with you for your edification, and instruction. Shalom!


Open doors

Now, two days ago, as I was in prayer, I was suddenly taken into the vision, where I saw an open door that extended into infinity. This opening did not have a hinged door by which it could be shut. It also continued to extend, becoming wider and wider even as I watched. As I was looking at it, the Lord said to me that this new season He is bringing us into will be a time of ‘open doors’. Your doors which were shut, your wells of provision which were shut, and many other doors will be reopened. Hey, get ready to step into places you never through you could! The Lord also gave me this word for you: Rev 3:7  “To the messenger of the church in Philadelphia, write: ‘The one who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens a door that no one can shut, and who shuts a door that no one can open, ‘says this: ‘I know what you’ve been doing. Look! I have put in front of you an open door that no one can shut. You have only a little strength, but you have obeyed my word and have not denied my name. Rev. 3:7,8.


Divine remembrance

Many of you will be amazed by God as you enter a season of divine remembrance. Your prayers will be remembered. Your giving will be remembered. Your service and commitment to God will be remembered. Your good deeds will be remembered. But not just remembered, for God will also reward you for your demonstrated faithfulness. ‘This is a time to remain close to Me, My Children, for I desire to reveal My goodness in your lives, says the Lord.’ God also gave me this verse for you: ‘Then those who feared the LORD talked with each other. The LORD listened and took note, and a scroll of remembrance was written in his presence about those who fear the LORD and honor His name. “They’ll be mine,” says the LORD of the Heavenly Armies, “in the day when I prepare my treasured possession. I’ll spare them, just as a man spares his own son who serves him. When you return, you will see the difference between the righteous and the wicked, between the one who serves God and the one who does not.” Mal 3:16-18


New beginnings

This New Year is also a time of New Beginnings. Begin to expect the Lord to breakthrough and quickly conclude many of the things you have trusted Him to do in your life. The Lord gave me this Word for you: ‘He who breaks open the way goes up before them. They break through the gate, and go out. And their king passes on before them, with Yahweh at their head.’ Micah 2:13. For the Lord is going ahead of you in this New Year to cut down that which has been stopping your progress and to usher you into an unlimited destiny. The Lord said to me that He is releasing new divine connections, new blessings – jobs, weddings, sources of provision, international doors, anointings, and much more. To those of you who have been trusting Him to drive new cars: this is your season! Expect your new ride, ANYTIME NOW! The Lord said to Me, ‘I will not allow My sons and daughters to be limited anymore.’


Manifest presence

As we worshipped and prayed in church yesterday (20th September), there was a breakout of the glory of God in our midst. The manifest presence of God was so strong as we were making prophetic declarations concerning the New Year. The Lord then commanded me to anoint the people who were present for a great new year 5778. As soon as I did this, the power of God intensified so much that the atmosphere was electric. As I looked on, my eyes were opened and I saw the cloud of God’s glory had come down in our midst. I also saw many angels present with us and releasing new blessings from the presence of the Lord – which are for this new season to which we have just entered. I also saw a strong prophetic anointing flowing to prophesy within the church. God picked one of my daughters and used her to speak prophetically to everyone in the house in the prophetic word. The released glory was too much! At the end of it all, the Lord said to me, ‘This is only the beginning of the wave of My glory which is coming to this church.’ This is a year when you will experience an overflow of His presence and power!


Mature sons and daughters

The Lord said to me about 5778, that this is a year when He will feed His people with understanding. I saw a spirit of revelation being poured out upon the Church of the Lord Jesus. Many who have been spiritual toddlers will rise into the maturity of the sons and daughters of the Most High. As this happens, I saw that there will be an unfolding of many spiritual gifts which have been dormant for a long time. There will be those who will rise and work signs and wonders in this new season. The Lord also said to me, ‘Sound a call to My people and say to those who are thirsty for more: Get in the flow of My Spirit and I will use you to demonstrate My power on the earth.’ I saw that as many manifested their gifts and callings, an influx of non-believers began to flood the churches. To the men and women of God who are reading this: Expect your membership to multiply as God multiplies the number of servants in your assemblies.


Double blessing

As we begin this New Year, though many of you have not been aware of it, God has been watching you as you did His work and served to enlarge His kingdom. The Lord gave me this Word for you: ‘You will be called, ‘The LORD’S Priests,’ ‘The Servants of our God.’ You will be proud of all the riches that have come to you from all the nations on earth. In the past, other people shamed you and said bad things to you. You were shamed much more than any other people. So in your land you will get two times more than other people. You will get the joy that continues forever.’ Isaiah 61:6-7. For God will give you the double for all the trouble you have had to go through. The Lord also says to you, ‘I am a faithful God, and I keep all My promises to My people. Do not fear, for I have seen those who have fought to stop you, but now My time has come to arise in your lives and fulfil My words. I, your God, will remove from you the reproach of your enemies and cause you to have new joy in Me again.’ Some of you will carry the kind of blessing no one has yet received in your families in this year. God’s GOODNESS is about to pass in front of you!



The Lord also spoke to me to command you His people to surrender to Him. He sent me with this word to you: ‘My children, diligently do My work. The time is short before I come to take My people home with Me. Do not be still, but arise and fulfil My assignments upon your lives. I desire diligence in you, My children. Do not sit down, but MOVE, MOVE, MOVE! I have many more of My sons and daughters who are lost in the world. I desire that they should return to Me and I am sending you forth to speak My Word to them. To those who follow My commands, I will release a special blessing, for I am a God who rewards those who serve Me with all of their heart. Therefore, stand firm and do My work, says the Lord.’ I saw many rewards that are lined up for those who will become dedicated servants. God will bless many of you so you will become enviable everywhere you turn.


The Lord also said to us as we prayed and spent time in His presence [in church] yesterday, ‘I have seen your sacrifice [i.e. to those who are fasting with the MY DESTINY MUST MANIFEST 21 DAY FAST – from 10th to 30th September – of which if you are not fasting already, you may join in  here: ] and I will surprise you, My children.’ We are in a season where many divine blessings will be poured out upon God’s faithful people. I believe you are one of them!


So there goes the Word which God gave me for you in this season of the Jewish New Year 5778. As my ears were tuned in to the spirit yesterday (20th), I began to hear the trumpets being blown in heaven above. This signals a new season where the King will visit the lives of His people. Following now is the 10 Days of Awe which culminate on the 30th of this month which is Yom Kippur, also the Day of Atonement, the only time of the year when the High Priest would enter into the Holy of Holies to sprinkle the blood of sacrifice on the mercy seat.


For us as the church [of the Lord Jesus], the Lord spoke to me and said we are to celebrate what He has done for us on this day – for Jesus Christ was the fulfilment of this holiest day of the year to the Jewish people. Now we need no more sacrifices, but we remember the sacrifice that was offered by our Father on the cross, once for all. This Jesus also entered into the courts of heaven with his blood and brought it to the altar which is in heaven, which blood continues to speak good things for us as the church, even to date. MAY THIS BLOOD SEAL YOU FOR A GREAT NEW YEAR THAT HAS JUST BEGAN, IN JESUS NAME!!!
