From the Desks of Steve Shultz and Julie A. Smith:

Steve Shultz

Have you been decreeing and longing for increase and breakthrough? Then you will enjoy this encouraging word from Danielle Dixon for the new year 5783/2023!

As builders of the Kingdom of Heaven, God is upgrading us, expanding our territory and more as Danielle shares:

All of us are breaking through something, but this is a year where there will be a reward for those who have persisted in breaking through, even under the pressure that they have had to resist. The pressure that came against them is the same pressure and the same force that will cause the breakthrough.

A Year of Breakthrough

There is breakthrough available to you in the Hebrew year 5783, but it is important to stay in the upper room – to be clothed with power from on high. Breakthrough is available for those who have persisted. Breakthrough is available for those who haven't given up on their assignments or left what the Lord has asked them to do. Always remember this: Breakthrough means you broke through something, so it is for people who have been persistently working at breaking through things.

I love 2 Samuel 5:20, which speaks of God as being the Lord of the breakthrough. All of us are breaking through something, but this is a year where there will be a reward for those who have persisted in breaking through, even under the pressure that they have had to resist. The pressure that came against them is the same pressure and the same force that will cause the breakthrough.

"So David went to Baal Perazim, and David defeated them there; and he said, 'The Lord has broken through my enemies before me, like a breakthrough of water.' Therefore he called the name of that place Baal Perazim." (2 Samuel 5:20)

A Change of Power

There will be a further shift in ownership of buildings, lands and properties – a change of ownership, symbolizing a change of power. I believe debt cancellation is included in this. I believe this will launch into 2023 and beyond, and that the wealth of the wicked has been stored up for the just (Proverbs 13:22). We are going to see a season of reaping where we haven't sown (John 4:38).

I am reminded of the Scripture that speaks about the plowman overtaking the reaper in Amos 9:13:

"Behold, the days are coming,' says the Lord, 'when the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows seed; the mountains shall drip with sweet wine, and all the hills shall flow with it.'"

Another thing the Lord said to me about this prophetic insight for 5783 was to watch our mouths (we are in the decade of Pey, which symbolizes the mouth). He said that our mouths, in the area of finances, must line up with what we are believing. So we can't speak things like debt cancellation, cancellation of the mortgage over our houses, or cancellation of our car loans, and the next minute speak something that's the complete opposite. So we should be careful of what we speak in the area of finances. Believe God for abundance and the overflow in that area.

I really sensed that this is an important key to receiving that ownership – making declarations as the sons and daughters of God. We have a kingly anointing to decree something and receive it, just because He loves us. (Photo via Unsplash)

Expansion and Advancement Upon the Enemy

I believe there will be unexpected expansion and growth starting in 2023 and beyond. I believe this will also stem from faithfulness. We know the last two years have been a preparation for us to rule in the midst of our enemies. I believe that people who have been standing for people groups, for nations, and for movements are going to see this promise of unexpected growth and expansion. I believe it is something that the Lord is going to do through 2023 and beyond, and it will keep going.

In Genesis 28:13-15, God told Jacob in a dream that He would give him and his numerous descendants the land. They would spread to the north, south, east and west, and the earth would be blessed through them. God would protect Jacob and never leave him or forsake him until the promise was complete.

I release that same blessing to those who have been believing for people groups – especially where there has been no reward, no gain of notoriety, no gain financially; they just did it because the Lord said it. Amen!

I believe 1 Chronicles 4:10, where Jabez calls upon the God of Israel, also applies to our spiritual expansion: "Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep from evil..."

Also, connected with this expansion is our advancement into the enemy's lands. We are taking the enemy captive! It's like a role reversal. I saw that all of the pressure which has come against you is now being used against the enemy, and the assignments of the enemy.

An Increase of Apostolic Anointing and Grace

There will be an increase of the apostolic anointing and grace for those who have been standing in the gap for people groups, for nations, and for regions. I believe that you can claim this for your family too. I believe that there is going to be a supernatural grace to complete apostolic assignments that God has appointed all over this earth.

For those who have been standing – those who have been persisting – remember what it says in Matthew 24:13: "...he who endures to the end shall be saved." We don't always like the word "endurance," but God loves this word, because it carries such a blessing.

The Year of the Holy Spirit and of God's Blessings

I heard the Lord say that the three in 2023 symbolizes the Holy Spirit, as He is the third member of the Godhead. He said that this will be a year of the Holy Spirit.

After He gave me this insight, I went to study the symbolism behind the number three in 5783. I found that the Hebrew letter Gimel carries the value of three and means reward. The pictograph for this letter is a camel, which biblically represents provision, abundance and blessing.

I was so excited about how this connected to the Hebrew year 5783. I believe this is how the Church is supposed to walk forward – in the blessing of God, in reward, in provision, in abundance and in expansion. I believe God is doing something supernatural for us in 5783.

Exposure of the Enemy and His Operations

I really believe that in 5783, the Lord is drawing our attention and revealing to us where the enemy is operating. It may be in geographical areas, or in hidden places that we may not realize are in our own lives – or in something we are trying to establish, and it is not being established in the way we thought it would. God is revealing to us where the enemy has been looting the threshing floor of His saints – the prayers and the promises of the saints of God.

The Scripture passage the Lord gave me for this year is from 1 Samuel 23:1-6:

"When David was told, 'Look, the Philistines are fighting against Keilah and are looting the threshing floors,' he inquired of the LORD, saying, 'Shall I go and attack the Philistines?' The LORD answered him, 'Go, attack the Philistines and save Keilah.' (Photo via Unsplash)

"But David's men said to him, 'Here in Judah we are afraid. How much more, then, if we go to Keilah against the Philistine forces!'

"Once again David inquired of the LORD, and the LORD answered him, 'Go down to Keilah, for I am going to give the Philistines into your hand.' So David and his men went to Keilah, fought the Philistines and carried off their livestock. He inflicted heavy losses on the Philistines and saved the people of Keilah..."

I believe that the Philistines in this passage represent anything that is coming against Kingdom building – against establishing the Kingdom. This Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom, and as Kingdom builders (Daniel 2:44), we need to know that every other kingdom will fall, but the Kingdom of God will stand forever and ever.

If the Lord asks you to go to battle, you are going to win!

Also, through this Scripture, I felt the Lord was saying that in this year, we should seek and listen to the Him about whether or not we are to go to battle. He only instructs us to fight when we have been prepared and He knows we are going to win. Just as with this Scripture, there will be times when the Lord says, "Go down to battle against these Philistines. I will give them into your hands."

Kingdom Problem Solvers and the Builders

I believe God will give some people an increase of insight for difficult situations – why alignments aren't working out; why there's trouble between different movements or people groups. They will be real problem solvers, carrying apostolic discernment at the highest level, where they can go into a city and solve what's been causing disunity there, or what's been causing division and splits within nations and within political parties. I also believe that there will be greater discernment for ministries and for our own individual lives.

As we obey the Lord's command in this season, a lot of the hedges that have been broken down in the last few years are going to be rebuilt. There is a rebuilding that's going to happen. I feel this also connects with Nehemiah and the rebuilding of the walls. There's something so prophetic about Nehemiah rebuilding in fifty-two days what people could not do in many years. This was because of the apostolic grace that was upon Him. He was called as a builder, and now there are other builders who have risen up and are already in leadership roles within the nations. They have a great kingly anointing to be able to discern in difficult situations and seasons.

This is the year of the Holy Spirit (5783 and 2023), and there will be breakthrough, expansion and blessing!
