Many blessings for the new year! May you experience the favor of God upon your life and open heavens every day of this brand-new year!
It is important to know what God is saying to us TODAY!
What is God’s will for this phase of your life?
Rom 12:2 tells us that it is possible to know the perfect will of God for your lives!
Every year I spend time with the Lord & ask: WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SAY TO US?
Every believer should do this every year and many times throughout the year!
God has so many good thoughts and plans for your life!
Ps 139:17  How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more than the sand
And when God speaks to you about the future – lets honor Him as God!
Write it down!
Pray & Speak it into existence!
THINK ABOVE!                                             
When I asked the Lord about 2017, He first showed me Col 3:1-3: If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God. Be mindful of things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life has been hidden with Christ in God. 
This Scripture is about a CONSTANT RENEWAL OF THE MIND! (:1-3)
What you are thinking about the most, will be evident in your words and in your life! Are you normally focusing on the giants in the your life, or do you look past the obstacles and focus on God with whom all things are possible? If you want 2017 to be the best year ever - THINK about the above! GOD! The WORD! POSSIBILITIES!!!
THINK ABOVE means to read the Bible every day and then think about it! Read the Scripture, then put the Bible down and think: Lord, what are you saying to me through this Word? Write it down and for the rest of the day, make time just to rethink what God is saying!
Verse 5 says: kill the bad things in your life! And verse 12 says: put on the new things of the Word! And precisely that is renewal of the mind – to continuously look away from the negative and every day focus on the positive things of the Bible. The results will be a fabulous year and a fabulous life!
The rest of Col 3 encourages us: LIVE WHAT YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT!!!
Col 3:13-17As Christ forgave you, so also you do. And above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which you also are called in one body, and be thankful. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And everything, whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.
Let your lifestyle be one of FORGIVING OTHER PEOPLE wherever you go! (:13)
Decide to LOVE all people with agape love – doesn’t matter if they deserve it or not! (:14)
Let God’s PEACE live in your heart! (:15) Be a peacemaker because His Shalom rests on you!
Do more than only reading the Word every day - LIVE THE WORD! (:16) Whatever comes out of your mouth, let it be filled with God’s Word!
And WHATEVER YOU DO - DO ALL FOR JESUS! (:17) whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.
Are you excited and willing to THINK ABOVE! And LIVE from the ABOVE?
IT’S TIME!!! (I heard it again and again … It’s TIME!)
Time to move from our time schedules to God’s time schedule!
It is time to FOCUS ON GOD’S PRIORITIES in our lives!
What are you PLANNING and what are you busy with for 2017?
Are you sure it is in sync with what God has in mind for you?
But it is also important to know where we are on GOD’S CLOCK FOR ETERNITY….
In so many visions and dreams now, God says: TIME IS UP!
The RETURN OF JESUS Christ is very near!
People had visions of time on watches erased & on cell phones too – blank screen!
It is so important to bring in the lost & disciple them to bring in those around them!
Col_4:5  Walk in wisdom toward those on the outside, redeeming the time. (Hebrew = buy out the time!)
Rev 1:3  Blessed is the one who reads and hears the Words of this prophecy, and the ones keeping the things written in it, for the time is near.
And 2017 is also a time of FULFILLMENT OF GOD’ PROMISES in your life!
What are the promises of God and the prophetic words He spoke over your life?
If not yet fulfilled - Write it, expect it; speak it, pray it in!
God says: ITS TIME! ITS TIME!!!
YEAR OF THE RULING SWORD – 5777          
While we are living in the Gregorian calendar in 2017, on the lunar calendar we are in the YEAR 5777. In the Hebrew calendar, every number has a very specific MEANING!
The MEANING OF THE NUMBER 5 is HEI, and it means A WINDOW! It is the form of a house without the roof, but on the left hand side, there is a little opening – like a window you can look through. The symbolic meaning of this is that in this whole era of the Jewish year 5000 going on to the year 6000, we will SEE CLEARER AND CLEARER IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM what God is actually doing in our time! More Revelation from the Word than ever before will occur!
It is like 1 Cor 2:9 says: But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath REVEALED them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
But the number 5 – the Hebrew Hei also means the BREATH OF GOD (breathing out … hei) And the Breath of God is the PRESENCE of God!!! So this s also a time of experiencing God’s Presence more and more every day!!! MAKE TIME TO BE IN HIS PRESENCE!!!
The number 5 in the Bible is also the number of GRACE! It is not our own good work that brings us in right standing with God, BY GRACE WE WERE SAVED!!! And we are living in the time of god’s GRACE! As Zech 4:6 says: Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
The meaning of 7 – ZAJIN = SWORD! Zajin looks like a sword with a curled point!
3 X 7 – 3 NUMBER OF GOD!
This new year echo out! THE SWORD! THE SWORD! THE SWORD!
Do you hear the battle cry in the spirit realm!
Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword (machaira) of the Spirit, which is the word (Rhema) of God: MACHAIRA is a short dagger like sword with a curled point – like a corkscrew… When you thrusts it into somebody and pulls it out again, it brings with it some stuff from the inside! It was a horrific weapon of destruction in close combat and the enemy feared it! The devil fears the Sword of the Spirit of God!
When it says that the SWORD (MACHAIRA) is the word of God, it is not only the Words in the Bible that is meant. The Greek word used here is the WORD RHEMA – that is the words we speak under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. So when I am filled with the Word of God (the Bible) and I SPEAK LEAD BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, MY WORDS ARE LIKE THE FEARED MACHAIRA SWORD in battle against the evil forces of satan!
Read the word; Study the Word: Eat the Word; Know the Word; Use the Word!
Wait on God for REVELATION KNOWLEDGE! (Sadhu Sundar Singh)
Ps 1 – Meditate on it – until it becomes part of you!!! Study verses that speaks about your circumstances! FEAR! LACK! WORRY! ANXIETY! Read 2 Tim 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Write those verses down & learn the by heart! Now think & meditate on them for at least 30 days & SPEAK it out every day! When the enemy attacks you – be ready & and then use the Machaira Sword in close confrontation with the enemy! Attack & Kill the enemy with the Sword of Word!
NB: devil cannot read our minds – he has to HEAR the Word against him!
SPEAK IT OUT LOUD! It will keep the enemy away!
It is like using the sword in warfare!
And God promises: MY WORD WILL NEVER RETURN VOID! Accomplish!
Isa 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
So also will be the word that I speak--- it will not fail to do what I plan for it; it will do everything
I send it to do.
(At His temptation in the dessert Jesus said: “IT IS WRTTEN”! & the ENEMY FLED!)
WE ARE CO-CREATORS WITH GOD! Speak it into existence!
(Mark 11:22-24 BELIEVE, SPEAK, RECEIVE!)
Speak Word God gives you! Rhema = NOW Word received from God (always WITH Scripture!)
REVELATION through the Word!
PS119 LIGHT & LAMP = showing us where to go!
As you use the Sword – revelations increase! Jer 33:3!!!
You will cry out to God, and He will show you great & wondrous things!
You will EXPERIENCE POWER in the Sword!
Hebrew 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Cut through sickness & strongholds! SPEAK Isaiah 53:5 By Jesus’ wounds you were healed! Voila!
STAND against enemy – SPEAK WORD! “I command you to leave in Jesus’ Name!” Voila!
I believe with all my heart that we are going to see AMAZING THINGS in 2017!!!
We will walk deeper in the supernatural than what we ever experienced before!
Seek God’s presence! Be a cloud follower! Ps 27:4
Ex33:14 My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest. 
Believe that you are a carrier of God’s Presence!
Believe that it is Natural to be Supernatural!
We will see miraculous HEALINGS!
Words of Knowledge!
Tongues & Interpretation!
When I waited upon the Lord, I heard: Kingdom Finances!
I sked Him: Lord, is this really what You are saying?
(Because every year people prophecy finances!)
He said: You heard My voice!
Kingdom Finances means that GOD WILL PROVIDE in ABUNDANCE…
But we must have a Kingdom mindset!
We must ask, listen and give in God’s Kingdom where He shows us!
He wants to bless us to be a blessing (Like Abraham!)
When we are Kingdom Givers, our hands are open in giving..
We will also receive in abundance into those open hands!
You will never be able to out-give God!
And when God convince you to be a Kingdom Giver, there will be no lack in Ministry!
We will have more than enough to reach out, save the lost & feed the poor!!!
Last night I had a vision of Jesus dropping gifts from heaven in 2017. These gifts were falling through the sky and landing in the lives of many of God's people.
When the gifts were opened there was an EXPLOSION and HOUSES and BUILDINGS SPRUNG UP! I felt the Lord say "2017 IS THE YEAR OF THE HOUSE! and that He will be SUPERNATURALLY providing HOUSES and BUILDINGS for HIS HOUSE (Church).
On the front door of each house was Ephesians 3:20 ENGRAVED on it from the Passion Translation Version:
"God will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for His miraculous power constantly energizes you."
I believe that the Lord is going to release GIFTS OF HOUSES AND BUILDINGS to His people in 2017 and they will be BIGGER and BETTER than what you have ever dreamed, hoped for or imagined. The Lord is giving UPGRADE in HOUSES and BUILDINGS for the delight of His people and to be used to extend His Kingdom.
I saw SUPERNATURAL BREAKTHROUGH of DEBTS for CHURCH BUILDINGS suddenly being paid off. I saw SUDDEN influx of finances to the people of God to BUY and OWN land for the dream and vision the Lord has given them. It won't be hard, it will be EASY! There will be GREAT GRACE FOR THE NEW SPACE!!!
YEAR OF THE MIRACULOUS! - Past Jacques de Villiers
The Word for 2017 flows from the Word of 2016. 2017 is going to be a great and fabulous year. It will be the year of the miraculous.
I saw christian business people and businesses arising like white shining pillars. Business contracts and divine connections will be drawn to them. Its like doors have been opened in 2016 through their faith and obedience to Fathers Word and they will walk into the miraculous in 2017.
I also hear the word SUDDENLIES. Holy Spirit show me it is like a fire work display. 2017 will be an ongoing experience of the miraculous.

Holy Spirit also showed me that we need to be restless with our current circumstances and be expectant of the miraculous in our families, our houses, our relationships and our finances.
2017 The year of EXPECTATION! - Prophet Dorita Engelbrecht
2017 is the year of Emmanuel – God with us. And if God is for us, who can be against us.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword separate us from the love of Christ?
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
2017 is the year of Expectation
God is going to meet you on your expectation. If you hunger for more of Him, He will feed you with His Love and goodness.
Matt 6:33 “but seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
2017 is the year of Establishment (2 Chronicles: 1, 2, 3…9)
It is the year of Solomon’s anointing. His Kingdom, His Wisdom and wealth will be established in houses, families and businesses. Are you going to Establish with Authority His Kingdom? He already gave you the Keys to unlock heaven.
2017 is the year of Experience (James 1:5)
Wisdom is going to flow out of the river of experience. Your burning bush experience will glorify His Name. Your written exam, test and trials and downfalls will be your stepping stones and signboards for other to follow.
1 Thess 2: 3, 4 “For our exhortation did not come from error or uncleanness, nor was in deceit. But as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, not as pleasing men, but God who test our hearts.
2017 is the year of Equipping and Empowering (Eph. 4: 11-16)
“It is not just about now, it is about what you are becoming.” God is preparing you for something greater. He is going to equip and empower His people for His Kingdom. Follow the lead of Holy Spirit, what you must do. You have a unique assignment for 2017.
2017 is the year of Encounters
Lord, I wait on you with expectation. I surrender body, soul and Spirit. I want to encounter your Presence.
Ps 37:3 Trust in the Lord and do good;
4 Delight yourself also in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart” Encounters will be in the natural, but also in the Supernatural. Our lives are going to be transformed with every Encounter.
2017 is the year of Enlargement
Your capacity, territory and authority are going to expand and enlarge.
Expect and ask great things from the Lord. Plant your seeds in faith and wait expectantly for the harvest.
2017 is the year of Encouragement
Many Barnabusses / encouragers are raised up to prophesy our people’s lives and edify His people. Use the Sword of S777 to give hope and set people free
Jer. 9: 10
Be Sensitive for the letter E – in 2017.
Like Exodus – “going out” Escape from Egypt – exit.
Esther – called for a time like this
Esra – Yahweh helps – God fulfils His promise to return His People to the Land of Promise.
Ephesians – Our inheritance of spiritual blessings
Ezekiel – “God’s Strength” – Heavens were opened and saw visions
