There seems to be many prophetic words being released regarding 2019. Three of the recent ones I've come across are:
For me, these prophecies of 2019 being a year of breakthrough simply confirm what I have strongly sensed in my spirit for many months.
What Is Breakthrough?
Before I share a few of my anticipated breakthroughs, let's breakdown what it means to have a breakthrough.
- An offensive military assault that penetrates and carries beyond a defensive line
- An act of moving through or beyond an obstacle.
- A sudden advance especially in knowledge or technique.
An Offensive Military Assault
Beloved, we are in a war—a spiritual battle that is fought in the heavens and is played out in the marketplace. It's time to quit tiptoeing around with attempting to solve unsolvable problems with man's wisdom and move into unleashing the fullness of the Spirit and power (1 Cor. 2:4-5) to take back enemy territory that belongs to Jesus (Heb. 10:12-13).
Attempting to win this war under our human power is exactly what Satan wants. He wants every person on earth to discount the supernatural power that is available to every born-again believer. We must unleash the full arsenal power of heaven or stay off the battlefield and allow Satan to continue to dominate people, communities, marketplace mountains and nations.
Moving Through or Beyond an Obstacle
Admit it—sometimes just sensing or seeing the "obstacle" is enough to slow us down, even stop our advance. I've done this too. But now I refuse to be like one of the 10 spies who only focused on the obstacles. I purposefully choose to only focus on the size of my God and move through the obstacle.
Example: I just heard this week a story of how the very popular preacher, Jesse Duplantis, handles unexpected bills. Whenever he gets the bill in the mail, he holds it high above his head and shouts, "Jesus—you've got mail!" I like that. Already using this myself.
God has a supernatural answer to every natural (and supernatural) problem in every country across every sphere of influence.
Sudden Advance in Knowledge or Technique
Do you know what a sudden advance in knowledge or technique is? It's a revelation!
To move through or beyond your obstacles in 2019 within your marketplace battlefield, you will absolutely need God's revelations to overpower the enemy in his battlefield! (I have much more to release throughout 2019 on how to receive and activate marketplace revelation, so hang in here with me!)
As you often hear me say, "Revelation without activation is insubordination." I therefore exhort you to journal your answers to these activation questions:
- What are your major battlefields in 2019?
- What specific obstacles must you move through or beyond in 2019?
- What specific types of heavenly power do you need to pull down from heaven to win your marketplace wars?
2019: My Year of Breakthrough
Yes, I sense 2019 will indeed be a breakthrough year for me. Perhaps just reading this is stirring within you the same.
Much of what is to come for me I will share throughout the year. But for all you "inquiring minds," here is a brief overview of what is to come for me:
- More crystallized focus of discipling and advising executives whose passion is to transform their companies, communities and countries for the kingdom.
- Stepping more boldly into my destiny of a marketplace apostle to the nations, discipling the next generation and sparking economic activities to fund the end-time harvest.
- Releasing several new manuals, books and teaching series, all within a multi-language marketplace-focused app.
- Transforming my current weekly blog into a weekday "Daily Download" of bite-sized revelations for immediate application.
- Expanding content distribution channels to include YouTube, podcasts—and much, much more.
