A Powerful Prophecy For 2018
KENT CHRISTMAS Prophecy for 2018
God has been speaking to me prophetically about our nation and about the church, and I have never written down a prophetic word before in thirty-some years that God has used me prophetically. To my knowledge I’ve never got behind the pulpit and read a prophetic word of the Lord. But God has given me so much over the last few days that in my prayer time I could do nothing but write. So today I’m going to read you a prophecy that God has been giving me. And this prophecy deals with the nation, it deals with the lukewarm, it deals with the wicked, and it deals with the righteous. This prophecy is not specifically for this church, even though The Resting Place is a part of the Body of Christ, this prophecy that I’m going to give you today is not specifically for this church. So if it doesn’t apply to you, don’t take it. If it does, then reach out and get a hold of it. It is for the Body of Christ and because we are live streaming I trust that this word of the Lord will be released into places that it needs to be released today in the house of the Lord. It starts out really in a negative. It ends up in a positive. And so, though I am not used to doing it this way, this is how I felt the Lord lead me today.
The Lord says that, “I am now taking hold of the reins of the nations in the earth and of My Body, the church. The season of men being in charge is over, and I am now going to perform the word of My prophets that they have declared for generations.” “To those in My house who are believers but have left your first love, either return unto Me your passion, or I am going to remove your candle stick and I will give it to another. And the light of My presence will no longer be in your life because you did not value the presence of the Lord.”
“For Christians who no longer value My presence anymore and are lukewarm and My house has not been a priority in your lives, I’m going to withdraw from you this coming year” says God. “I have blessed the lukewarm hoping that My blessings would make you love Me more and want to spend time with Me, but you have fallen in love with My blessings instead of Me. I am now going to remove My protection that I have had in your lives and in your house and over your families” says the Lord. “And when you cry out to Me, I will not answer you in that day.”
“My people have run after preachers and prophets who have lied to them and said ‘it’s alright to be lukewarm and committed to Me’ and ‘make sin peace in your life’. They have said that I am only a God of grace and mercy, and though I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, I also take no pleasure in My people who honor Me with their lips but not with their hearts.”
For Christians who have known My holy presence and have been filled with My Spirit but have put no value on that privilege, I am, in 2018, beginning to remove My presence from them and they will no longer even feel convicted for the ways that they go in that are no longer right.”
“I have never asked My children to be perfect, just to be holy. Not to love the world or the things that are in the world, but to love Me first. What the lukewarm have sold their souls for in the church, I am now going to take from them and I’m going to give it to my children who have lived for Me at any cost. And there is going to be great change in the value system in the house of God. I am not releasing this word today”, says the Lord, “because I’m looking for people to repent, but I’m releasing this word because I am absolving Myself of the blood of the lukewarm on the day that you stand and look into the eyes of your Holy Father. So He who is holy, let him be holy still. And he who is unclean, let him be unclean.”
“Starting in 2018, I am going to begin to remove many churches in this nation who have made My house a house of merchandise, but have caused My presence to be hid from My sheep. For My house shall be called a house of prayer”, says the Lord, “and not a din of thieves. My house shall be a hospital”, sayeth God, “that shall be filled with the bruised, the broken, and the needy. And though My house has been filled with many, it’s not been filled with those who My spirit has reached out to.”
“This final move that I am now releasing in the earth”, sayeth the Lord, “is not a move that is going to have mixture, but it will be a move of the pure presence of Myself and of the Shekinah glory of God. I am releasing My glory and My presence in the earth because the harvest is now ready”, says the Lord “and I have been waiting for laborers to gather the harvest in.”
“I now say unto the church that I have enough labors”, sayeth God “to bring the harvest into the house of the Lord. So 2018,” sayeth the Lord “for many houses, your walls will have to be pushed out”, sayeth God “ for there is an army of men and women that are getting ready to come into the house of the Lord. And for those that are laborers”, sayeth God “your labor in My work has not been in vain, but the joy of the Lord shall be in thee as you watch”, sayeth God “them come in. Not by the hundreds, and not by the thousands, but by the millions they shall come into the United States of America and to other nations. And My house again shall be called the house of prayer.”
“As I now begin to release My glory in the nation, there are going to be massive crowds and abundant supply of financial resources. And great signs and wonders shall not only be in the church, but shall even begin to be released in Congress and in governments”, sayeth God “and in places of leadership throughout the world.” “I have withheld signs and wonders and miracles because the counterfeit church has made a god out of them and sought them and counterfeited them and would not give Me glory. 2018 shall be a beginning of the greatest supernatural display of the power and of the glory of God that man has ever seen. You shall stand in amazement”, sayeth God “and even the stories that have been told to you by those of another generation shall not be able to measure up to that which I am getting ready to release in the Body of Christ for the glory of the Lord. For it is my honor”, sayeth God “to display My muscle and the power of My might. And though I have been limited”, sayeth God “I am now no longer limited. For I have an army of believers who have risen up in faith who have declared ‘Our God can do anything’.”
The days of the Devil and his servants putting a muzzle on my people are over. I now”, sayeth the Lord “am going to put great men in places of tremendous influence in the nations. And they will speak with such authority and power that the enemy will not be able to be challenged. And the voices that have stood on your televisions and have said that God is dead and that righteousness is evil, and evil is righteousness,” God said “I am going to smite them. I am now declaring war on the devil and his kingdom and all his savants which have tried to destroy Me and my people.”
“2018”, sayeth God “will be known and remembered as the year of death in the United States for the wicked who have been a mouth piece for Satan and also for false prophets, hirelings, and wolves in sheep’s clothing, and the lukewarm”. God said, “I am physically going to begin to remove men and women. And when you get up in the coming years”, sayeth the Lord “you shall be amazed at the names that are going to begin to leave the earth the have tried to detour the power and the glory of the Lord. I am going to replace them with men, hallelujah, who have never been heard and women who have been silenced by the enemy. And they shall stand and speak under the wisdom and the power of God. And even your news channels”, sayeth the Lord “shall begin to give them coverage of what God is saying in this hour. In 2018, though it will be a year of death for the wicked”, God says “it will be remembered as the year of rebirth and life for the righteous.”
“I now speak as the Eternal Father of Heaven”, says the Lord. “For decades My Son, Jesus Christ has been ridiculed, discredited, mocked, and ignored by the wicked and not been given the honor and the reverence by the lukewarm.” God says, “I am now, in 2018, in this nation and in nations around the world, I’m going to vindicate My Son, Jesus Christ, in the nations. And I am going to lift Him up and His Name, and it will be a Name above all names in Heaven and earth”, sayeth the Lord. “And the Name of Jesus again will be on the lips of men and women that are righteous in this country.
And the days of maligning My God”, sayeth the Lord “are going to become over.” God says, “I am going to bankrupt sports in the year of 2018”, sayeth God. “I am coming against Hollywood. I am coming against the NFL. I am coming against professional sports”, sayeth God “and they shall never recover for the spirit that has been within them. At the same time,” sayeth the Lord “ there is going to be a spirit of honor that is going to descend upon the house of God and I am going to redeem the integrity of My people and of My ministry”, says the Lord “and the house of God shall be known as a house of integrity and righteousness and power”, sayeth the Lord.
“Starting now and continuing into the year 2018, I am going to answer the long term prayers of the righteous, both in the Spirit and in the natural. For years”, sayeth the Lord “My children have prayed to Me, and petitioned Me, and asked Me, and commanded Me, and yet I have been silent until they have wondered ‘God do you even hear us?’. Yes, I heard you oh righteous children! And not only am I going to answer your prayers in the Spirit realm, and yes there is going to be revival, and glory, and restoration” God says “the year 2018 shall be a year of natural blessing upon the house of God. The Lord said, “moving companies are not going to have enough trucks to handle the amount of the righteous that are moving out of one house into another”.
God says, “I am going to take businesses”, sayeth the Lord. “I’m going to transfer their ownership and their deed. And I’m going to give it to men that have struggled but have tithed and have stood on the things of God and held onto the word of the Lord.” “2018 will be a year of great reward to those, who with their great sacrifice and faith, have proved to Me, whether I answered their prayers or not, that they would love Me and serve Me til they die. And if they die with their prayers not answered, that praise would still be upon their lips as they cross over from that world to this. I am going to command the enemy to release,” sayeth God “and restore all that he has stolen from the righteous men and women in the earth. So that the word of the Lord shall be fulfilled that declares ‘the wealth of the wicked is stored up for the righteous’. And though they think because their name is on the deed that it belongs to them”, God said “I have had this generation of wicked men be just become care takers to nurture and to take care, and to grow the prosperity that I am getting ready to release unto the house of the Lord”.
God says, “I am going to give you the pick”, sayeth the Lord “even unto this local church, of a sanctuary that you want”. The Lord says, “there has been praise that has come up out of this house. And though you have wondered ‘God are we invisible?’ and ‘Do You know that we are here?’, God says “ your praise has ascended unto the throne room of the Lord. And so God says, “I am preparing thee a house and a habitation that shall be beautiful and you shall be as a city that is set upon a hill and shall not be hid”, sayeth God. “There will be no mortgage”, sayeth the Lord, “that in the last move of God”, God says, “man and the righteous will not take up three and four offerings in the house of the Lord trying to fund My Kingdom”, but God says “there will be such an abundance of the presence of God through money and resource, that we will have to tell the people enough is enough because thy coffers shall overflow. For the earth is full of My possessions” sayeth the Lord “and I own cattle on a thousand hills.
Do not think because I have been silent that I have not heard thy voice, but oh the year of the Lord has been attuned to the cry of my people. And I now stand in this day”, sayeth God “and I flex the muscle of My arm. And I declare that the earth is Mine. The church is Mine. Man is Mine. That I made man and he did not make Me. And My word will not return unto Me void”, sayeth the Lord. “This move that you are going to see with thy eyes is not a pruning of my house”, sayeth God “but it is a cleansing. ‘And thou shall (Hebrews 10:31) be fulfilled”, says the Lord.
It’s is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of a living God. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. The Lord says that, “I am not going to judge those in this house who have sinned out of weakness”. God said, “My mercy shall cover you”. But He said, “I am going to judge those in this nation and My house who have sinned out of choice and rebellion, and have rejected the ways of God”. “Grace”, sayeth the Lord “and judgement shall flow as two rivers at the same time from My throne and one shall be to the righteous whom the world has mocked and ridiculed and the other shall be to the wicked who have said ‘There is no God’. Oh know this”, sayeth the Lord “that when the trumpet sounds all shall wish they had been as the righteous. For the favor of God is now upon My people”, sayeth the Lord. “And as though they reaped the plagues in Egypt of the first few”, God said “I have declared from this day on that I am setting”, sayeth the Lord “a fence around godly families. And I make a commitment to you”, sayeth the Lord “and an oath that cancer shall not cross over, and death shall not cross over, and disease shall not cross over, and the devour shall not cross over. For there is favor upon thee.
And while there grows darkness in this nation, there shall be light in the land of the righteous”. So the Lord says, “I am loosing a sound of rejoicing in this sanctuary, hallelujah. And the spirit of heaviness that the enemy has put on you”, sayeth the Lord “I take off of you. And I put on you the garment of praise. Even get ready”, sayeth the Lord “that even this week”, sayeth God “My word is going to begin to be fulfilled because I do not lie and My word shall not return unto Me void. And for those that have served me for generations and for decades and have wondered ‘God if this is all there is’, know my son and daughter this is just the beginning of that which is being released.
So choose Me” sayeth the Lord “choose Me and know that the arm of flesh will fail you, but the arm of God Almighty shall sustain thee forever.” Hallelujah. Hallelujah. God says, “There have been many that before men, you were ashamed”. God says, “I can no longer have people who will be ashamed of Me before men”. God said, “I need you to take a public declaration that from this day on, regardless of the cost, I am going to serve the Lord Jesus Christ.” God said that, “The last move of the Lord will never ever be to the lukewarm, but it will be to the unsaved and it will be to the righteous”. And God said, “I am withdrawing my conviction from those that have heard Me and I have pleaded and they have not come.”
And God said, “You say there’s time.” God says, “There is no more time, not for the lukewarm. There is for the righteous and there is for the unsaved.” But the Lord says, “What I am releasing to Resting Place is so precious and so glorious that I cannot allow it to be put on people who don’t put value on it”. God says that, “There is a wind of rest that I am beginning to blow. Even this morning”, sayeth God “I am blowing rest into The Resting Place, hallelujah. I am blowing rest upon the lives of you faithful men and women that have been so depleted from the battle”. And God says, “Today I am taking the sword out of thy hand, and I’m putting a banner of righteousness and praise. And the war is coming to an end with evil in your life, hallelujah, hallelujah. For the unsaved that are in your families”, God says “part of my heritage to you, “sayeth the Lord “is that before this coming year is out many of you are going to stand in this church with your unsaved seed standing beside you, and they are going to give their hearts to the Lord”. God said, “I am brining healing to the rifts of families, hallelujah. That there is a bond of unity and love thats getting ready to hit the house of God”.
And so the Lord says, “I am not angry with thee today. That I released this word because I am now moving and man is no longer in charge”. And God says this, “I want you to be in My house. I want you to be in My Kingdom. I want to open the windows of Heaven on you. I want to bless you”. God says, “I am not angry. You are my love. I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked”. God said, “what I have is so valuable, that what I am going to give to committed people is of such price that I can only give it to people who by faith have declared value on me”. God said, “I have not forgotten the sacrifices that you have made, the tears you’ve cried, the pain of thy heart, the rejections, the sufferings, the embarrassments that you have endured for being a Christian. Know this”, sayeth the Lord “there has been a minority voice of evil, not of culture that has spoken in this nation”. God says, “now I’m going to muzzle that voice”. And God said, “there is a voice of righteousness”, and God says “You will sit as you watch different television news stations, you will look to one another in amazement and say ‘I can’t believe what I’m hearing’. Because God says, “I am lifting up men and I’m going to confirm”, sayeth the Lord, “that it is not the days of preaching anymore, but it is the day of demonstrating. And though there will be preaching in the house of God”, God says “it will not have the preeminence like it’s had”. But God said, “the greatest preaching that is going to come forth is there is going to be a confirming of the word, signs and wonders following”. The Lord says, “it’s even going to be on little children”.
God said, “I’m going to hit My class rooms”. The Lord says, “I am invading the school system of this nation and these lies”, sayeth the Lord “that have infiltrated”, the Lord said, “there are going to be professors and teachers that I am going to remove”, sayeth God “because they have stood in my class rooms and taught this generation that which is not true of Me”. And the Lord said, “there is a righteous sound”. Hallelujah, and the Lord also says this, “the flag of this nation shall never fall to the ground in infamy and embarrassment”, but the Lord said, “I am raising it back up and as thou has honored the flag”, sayeth the Lord, “thou has honored Me. And know this”, sayeth God “I breathe on you”, sayeth the Lord. “I breathe on you life. I breathe on you joy. I breathe on you peace, hallelujah. May the peace of God be upon you, My children, and may you receive My word today” sayeth the Lord.
