From the desk of Steve Shultz:
Never before IN MY MEMORY have there been so many prophetic words spoken so positively about this year! Such is the case with God's prophets as they speak about the year 2014 and years beyond.
But just as exciting – is a word that God is about to truly reach into the darkest places and begin to draw people out who are trapped in sin.
Doug Addison, "This movement will look very strange, as all types of people will begin to be drawn to God. In the midst of this, a new generation will begin to awaken to God's love, power, and acceptance."
Read this word to learn just a few of the many puzzle pieces God is releasing to His prophets about this year...2014. This is truly an encouraging word from the Lord!

Prophetic Word For 2014: A New Gate Will Open In Heaven
God is opening a gateway into the heavenly realm in 2014 for deeper revelation and greater power. This is the start of a new season, and the drought we have been experiencing in the Kingdom over the last few years is now over. Expect an increase in your spiritual gifts, dreams, visions, and supernatural encounters. This will open the opportunity for you to step up to a new level and see results for your efforts.
After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in Heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this." Revelation 4:1
Three Moves of God
We will see the start of a new move of God that will come in phases over the next few years. This year God is breaking a spiritual drought we have been in since 2008. I had a dream where an angel came and told me the humidity level right now is at eight, which is the number of new beginnings.
For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring, and My blessing on your descendants. Isaiah 44:3
The first part of this new movement of God will involve a time of refreshment for those who are weary. You will experience mini-renewals of His presence and gifts in your life. Many people have been suffering from hope deferred for so long that they need to soften up and be recharged.
The second part of this movement will be a new rain of the Holy Spirit that will come upon those that are seeking all that God has for them. This movement will look very strange, as all types of people will begin to be drawn to God. In the midst of this, a new generation will begin to awaken to God's love, power, and acceptance.
The next phase will bring God's power like we have not experienced before. This will be a new level of God's fiery presence and healing. This is a start of a new healing movement with miracles, signs, wonders, and deeper revelation.
Prophetic Words From 2009
God showed me that many prophetic words from the year 2009 that were intended to be fulfilled in 2010 were actually delayed until now. I went back, checked my journal, and sure enough I found many prophetic words in 2009 that never came about that are happening right now. I also got a confirming email from a friend whose prophetic word that I gave in 2009 is now beginning to happen. Go to your journal and look for prophecies or dreams from 2009. Get ready for them to unfold now at a greater level.
Reconciliation Instead of Accusation
The spirit of accusation has been dominating the Church for the past few years, making an unhealthy environment. When we accuse others without trying to find solutions, we must be careful that we are not coming into agreement with darkness over a person instead of God's purposes. One of the names given to satan is the accuser of Believers (see Revelation 12:10). We need to be very careful to not accuse others but build them up instead. God is releasing a spirit of reconciliation to offset the strong negative accusation. There are many Bible verses that talk about blessing people instead of cursing them (see Romans 12:14).
All this is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. 2 Corinthians 5:18
This year everyone will receive a new gift from God on his or her birthday. This might be a greater measure of the gifts you already have, new gifts of healing, prophecy, serving, etc. So get ready to receive birthday presents with a greater level of God's presence. You can expect a present of God's presence.
Gifts and Callings Rearranged
In the same spirit of giving, this year God is freeing up gifts and callings that have been given to people who have stopped using them or from people who have gone to Heaven. Many of these spiritual gifts and callings will be given to those who have been humble, seeking God, and have not built themselves up nor have operated in pride. God is lifting up those who have been humble. Some of them are the least expected. Those who receive these gifts and callings will have a sudden acceleration in their life, ministry, or businesses. But people who have been building their lives, ministries, and using others for their own gain will experience decline. God's love is still with them, but they will no longer have the edge they once had.
Jezebel Spirit Exposed
2014 will be a year that the Jezebel spirit will be exposed throughout the Church, government, and businesses. People who have been operating with this divisive and dividing spirit will be revealed. God will be revealing a new strategy to remove the grips and tentacles of the Jezebel spirit which has resisted and hindered previous moves of God over and over.
God's New Agenda
God has an agenda this year to bring healing and reconciliation to people who have been wounded or rejected by Christians. There is such a large number of people who have been wounded by Christianity. This should not be. God's love is for everyone and we must show it to those who need it the most. Quite often these are the ones who might be offended by this or have different viewpoints. God is drawing in the spiritual outcasts right now and dragging a net along the bottom that will pull up people from all walks of life.
In order to be part of God's agenda we must love unconditionally and be willing to walk with people who have been rejected and wounded. Love and lots of grace is required to be part of this new move coming to the spiritually outcast. Yes, God is on the move among the tattooed and pierced, those who are into zombies and vampires, gay and lesbians, new age people, and those of various political parties that are currently not accepted by many Christians.
[Note by Steve Shultz: Jesus said in John 12:32 "...And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all [men] unto Me." It is the Lord's desire and intention to reach into the darkest corners in the earth to draw, by the Holy Spirit, as many people who will say "Yes" to Him. There are no people groups from whom the Spirit will not seek to "woo" many to Jesus.]
God is also moving powerfully among women and promoting many into positions of new authority.
Financial Ruin Has Been Broken
Five years ago the U.S. and much of the world experienced a great financial downturn. One of the largest bankruptcies in U.S. history occurred in September of 2008. We will now see a five-year turnaround from that downturn. God is opening up opportunities right now for people to be repaid for any losses during that time. Also, there are Kingdom financial strategies being released from Heaven that will radically turn your financial situation around if you listen and act.
It is important to not pay attention to negative reports or get caught up in believing we are all going down. This is a time to take action, and it is very similar to what Isaac experienced in Genesis, chapter 26. During a great famine on Earth, Isaac listened to God and took a different direction than what most people were doing at the time. In verse 12 it says that he reaped 100 times during the famine.
Isaac planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundredfold, because the Lord blessed him. Genesis 26:12
2014 is a year of God's mercy upon us. God is promoting people who have loved, shown mercy, and not cut down others or driven them deeper into darkness. This is an exciting time to be alive, because if you have suffered, experienced losses or repeated attacks of the enemy, God is repaying you right now. All you have to do is ask and respond. Walk through the new golden gates being opened!
Here's to a year of breakthrough and turnaround. May God richly bless you with every gift you need to succeed this year.
