12 Scriptures for 2012 and Beyond

James W. GollI believe it is the year of the Word of the God and God of the Word! It is a time when the office of the teacher (Ephesians 4:11) or the teaching gift of the Holy Spirit (Romans 12:7) will be re-emphasized in the Body of Christ. It is a time when a convergence of the School of the Word and the School of the Spirit takes place. That is why I released a Bible reading program at the first of the year. It's never too late 2 participate!

With this conviction in mind, I went to prayer and asked the Lord for Scriptures for 2012. To my delight, I felt the Holy Spirit highlight the following 12 Scriptures for 2012 and beyond, all with the address of 20:12, 10:12, 12:12 or 12:20. I hope you enjoy this innovative way of gleaning from the Word of God.

1. Exodus 20:12"Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the LORD your God gives you." We must cultivate a culture of HONOR! Everyone wins and the supernatural flows freely in such an atmosphere!

2. Proverbs 20:12"The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the LORD has made both of them." Communion with God, including a greater diversity in the prophetic, will be welcomed as there is an increase in both the seer and hearer anointings.

3. Ezekiel 20:12"Also I gave them my Sabbaths to be a sign between Me and them, that they might know that I am the Lord who sanctifies them." The Holy Spirit is emphasizing REST! It will be a tool of healing for many. Some will be called into a time of "sabbatical rest," extended vacations and celebrating the Sabbath.

4. Job 12:12"Wisdom is with aged men, with long life is understanding." The Spirit of Wisdom (Isaiah 11:1-3) and the gift of the Word of Wisdom () will be emphasized as part of the solution for the times we are moving into.I Corinthians 12:8

5. Zechariah 12:10"I will pour out on the House of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn." There will be more global prayer that will arise for the nation of Israel in 2012 than any previous year in Church history. This is all in preparation for regional conflicts in the Middle East that could come forth in 2013 and beyond.

6. Matthew 12:20"A battered reed He will not break off, and a smoldering wick He will not put out, until He leads justice to victory." Discouraged people will find fresh hope, and the justice movement will come into greater maturity and impact.

7. Luke 12:12 "For the Holy Spirit will teach u in that very hour what u ought 2 say." Spontaneous leadings of the Holy Spirit will be released to many. Dependency on the "now voice" is a necessity. The Holy Spirit will manifest Himself as our Teacher.

8. John 20:12"...and she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and one at the feet, where the body of Jesus had been lying." There is an increase of angelic activity in the seer realm of discerning of spirits. People who have never seen angels will have angelic encounters.

9. Acts 20:12 "...they took away the boy alive, and were greatly comforted." The revival of the resurrection of the dead will spring forth. It will not be limited to "third world countries" but will escalate globally.

10. Romans 12:12 "...rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer." The message of the hour is HOPE! The call is 2 "Never give up!" There will be a return in the local Church to the call to intercession.

11. I Corinthians 12:12"For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ." This is the chapter for the year! It is time for Body ministry once again. As the five-fold ministry gifts are restored, the "saint's movement" will now pick up steam. Time for every member 2 function in the gifts of the Holy Spirit!

12. 2 Corinthians 12:12"The signs of a true apostle were performed among u with all perseverance, by signs and wonders and miracles." I am excited about this verse! It is the culminating verse the Lord has directed me toward. True apostles performing signs and wonders, walking in character are now on the scene.

Praise the Lord for the Year of the Word and the God of the Word merging. Let the fullness of the convergence of the ages – along with the graces of the past – be brought forward into our now for such a time as this. I trust these 12 Scriptures for 2012 and beyond will be a blessing 2 u!
With great expectations!

I Move in a Multitude of Ways

Eileen Fisher
 I hear the Lord say, "Hear the mixture of the sounds. Did u not hear the thunder? Did u not hear the horses? Did u not hear them pounding the earth as they are preparing to move about? Did u not hear the rain of refreshment that is about 2 fall upon the Earth? Did you not hear this tingle of hope, hope that causes people 2 look up 2 know redemption is drawing near? Did u not come to an understanding that I move in a multitude of ways? 

Sometimes I come in the thunder, sometimes I come in the whisper, sometimes I come in the stillness, and sometimes I come as a King of Glory on a mighty white steed preparing His people, preparing His people to go forth with the Gospel of power.

"I Am Preparing Runners"
"I am looking for a people who will submit, who will surrender, who will abandon themselves 2 Me, who will take back their will from one another and place their will and allegiance 2 Me and 2 Me alone. My will is about to be revealed. In this will, you will come 2 understand why I have had u lay aside, and why I have had u called out. I have called u aside so u could recognize My whispers. I have called u out from other things that would pull on u, 2b cut away from u, for your good.

"I am preparing runners: runners with My word, runners with My power, runners who are able 2 leap over mountains with Me with hinds' feet. I am causing My own to come apart, 2 come into the bridal chamber where I can whisper to them My will, and they can come forth with authority, knowing who has sent them. For the time you are entering into, the bridal chamber is thrown open. But it will be different, for there will be a party in this bridal chamber. It will be the wedding party that I am preparing for My own. Others will come, and those who are not dressed properly but with their own good works or with all that man has placed upon them, I will take it off of them. I will place My robes of grace, My robes of righteousness, and robes of My power with My works, with My name, for My sake.

"Come now and realize there is going to be a mighty, gigantic move that will come across your land. It will be known not only as a Jesus movement or a King of kings movement – for I alone have stripped away religion, and have stripped away any alliance with the world – it will cause everything that makes you stumble to be stripped away. There will come fire on the feet of My own to spread the Gospel of love, the good news of forgiveness, the good news of healing, the good news that God is for you and not against u. I am going to bring forth a grace message. But it will be a message balanced with grace and righteousness in purity and holiness, and in power, for they cannot go independent, but they must flow in the same river of love, protection, and authority," says the Lord your God.

"Learn to Accept My Glory"
The following corporate prophetic word was given by Eileen Fisher on January 10, 2012 during her weekly Prophetic School of the Holy Spirit meeting in Colorado Springs, Colorado:
The Lord said, "Take off restrictions. Take off the restrictions man has placed upon you. Take off constrictions, that the world has you tied in knots, not allowing u 2 run free. Throw off heaviness. Throw off sin. Throw off depression and discouragement. Stand on My Word. Dwell in My Word. Let My Word dwell in you. You are going to see My hand. When it comes down, you will know it is My hand. Even now My hand is moving. 

"Can u not hear the spirit of mockery rising up in the world? Do you not understand that I was mocked upon the Cross, and My own, too, will be mocked? Know in the mocking, there is also a marking of My glory. Learn 2 accept My glory. I have marked you with the Blood of My Son. I have paid costly for you. I have paid a great price for u. Live abundantly. Live in the Blood of My Son. Have I not said, 'There is life in My Blood?'

"Take life. Let death be defeated. Let depression be defeated. Let hope rise up where despair has become a place 2 lay. Take authority. Stand in the goodness of your God. Stand in My favor. Stand in My understanding. Ask for the mind of Christ to be placed in u, so u will be able 2 comprehend and to think the thoughts of Christ. Pull down vain imaginations. Wherever the enemy comes and takes up residency, u have allowed him 2 take what My Kingdom has come to claim. Declare 'off limits to the demonic.' Let My glory reign," says the Lord your God.
