2023 A Year of Multiplied Grace
A few weeks ago, the Lord began to speak to me that 2023 would be a year of multiplied grace. The word multiplied means to increase in number especially greatly or increase in multiples (merriam-webster.com). In 2022, for many of you there was and has been a great fight against your increase. The enemy came in and tried to keep you small or keep you stuck in the place that God called you to increase and expand in. The key to breakthrough concerning this in 2023 is Zechariah 4: 6-7 NKJV, “So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts.7 ‘Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”
2023 will be a year that you will advance and overcome what you could not in 2022, as you do it by the empowerment of His spirit. You will need the empowerment of His Spirit; you cannot do this in your own strength. There will be some shocking and breath-taking events that will take place but, His grace will keep you. Many will pass suddenly and unexpectantly in all spheres and genres of life. It will be like they were here one minute and gone tomorrow. His grace will keep you and strengthen so your heart won’t fail you.
Faith is a key to connect with this grace. Another crucial verse for 2023 is Mark 11:22-23, “ 22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” The Lord is gracing you to speak to the mountains and opposition that have stood before you in 2022. The shift and breakthrough is in your declaration. Speak grace grace to the mountains that stand before you. Nothing is too hard for God, just believe. He’s gracing you with new authority.
I had a recent encounter December 25th, Christmas night, where an angelic being came carrying to scrolls, and I head the Spirit of Grace say, “I’m releasing a double portion of grace upon My people as they receive My Word. In the story of Elijah and Elisha in 2 Kings 2, Elijah is getting ready to go to be with the Lord and Elisha asked him for a double portion. In 2 Kings 2:9-10 it says, “And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you? Elisha said, “Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me. 10 So he said, “You have asked a hard thing. Nevertheless, if you see me when I am taken from you, it shall be so for you; but if not, it shall not be so.” Elisha was faithful to go through the process to receive a double grace upon his life.
For those who have been faithful to the process and yielded to the Lord in 2022, double is your portion. When you look closer to the meaning of the double portion Elisha asked for, portion in the Hebrew is the word peh. Peh is the Hebrew word for mouth. We must not forget we are in the Decade of the Mouth (Peh). In the decade of the mouth there is a greater emphasis and authority upon the words we speak. We must not get caught up in the war of words in this time. When Elijah released the double portion, it was a double grace and anointing not just for the mantle Elisha would carry but, on the words he would speak. As you receive this double portion of grace upon your words, your words will carry greater impact in 2023.
Elijah was not just another prophet; he was a class of prophet. There had not been another prophet like Moses until Elijah came on the scene. Like Moses, Elijah was able to speak to creation and it obeyed. If he said no rain, there was no rain. Elijah carried a creative grace that caused Him to speak out of the glory of God that surrounds the throne of God. Not only will we see a great grace upon our words, but God is raising up prophets and a prophetic people that carry the Spirit of Elijah. In 2023, we are going to see the creative and demonstrative power of God be put on display like never before.
In 2023 the voice of the Lord is being magnified. It will be known as the hour of His roar through the earth and His prophets. Job 37:1-7 NLT declares, “My heart pounds as I think of this. It trembles within me. 2 Listen carefully to the thunder of God’s voice as it rolls from his mouth. 3 It rolls across the heavens, and his lightning flashes in every direction.4 Then comes the roaring of the thunder—the tremendous voice of his majesty. He does not restrain it when he speaks. 5 God’s voice is glorious in the thunder. We can’t even imagine the greatness of his power. 6 “He directs the snow to fall on the earth and tells the rain to pour down.7 Then everyone stops working so they can watch his power.” In 2023, there will be unusual storms and weather patterns and shakings that will take place. His voice will be found in the storm. It’s creation groaning and prophesying for the sons and daughters of God to manifest and step into their rightful place (Romans 8). There will be an increase of unusual creative miracles and unusual signs that will follow His people that will coincide with creation. Because God is empowering our words in 2023, there will be storms and events that we must speak to in order to shift the outcome.
We need to continue to pray for the unrest and violence brewing underneath the surface. We must pray against mass shootings and plots of domestic terrorism. There are those who desire to turn on their own nation. Continue to pray for the leadership of our nation. I saw one coming down and another rising up in their place. More natural disasters will affect the United in unprecedent ways. Be discerning and wise in how to prepare and where you live. I see Texas striking gold (oil). God is uncapping the oil wells of Texas in the natural and the spirit. More exposure will continue to come forth from the highest level down. The skeletons in the closets of those in power will continue to be exposed.
I see the church in England rising, it will be like an underground movement. Awakening is being stirred in the young people. The prophetic will begin to rise once again in England. There’s a rumble in the land. The roar is being restored over England. There will be a great shaking over the next 2-3 years. I will shake everything that can be shaken. Systems are coming down. I’m awakening my prophets out of their slumber says the Lord. The winds of my Spirit will once again blow over England and Whales. You are being sifted in this hour, but you are not forgotten, England. I’m weighing and measuring the hearts of my people in England. Pray for King Charles, I see sickness trying to attack his body. Pray for the council around him, that godly counselors would sorround him.
I see much unrest in France. I see territorial wars taking place and much violence in the streets. Pray for peace over France. I hear God say, “There will be an overturning and an overthrowing in France. Pray against terrorism in France.
I see Germany coming to front once again. They want to become more of a player in Europe. I see the Lord moving them like a cheese piece to the forefront. I see them desiring to become a player in the energy industry and a bigger influence in the EU. They will crack down on their people and create tougher laws.
We must continue to keep an eye on Iran. Iran is the sleeping giant that will try to strike in 2023. Many secret meetings and back-channel communications have been taking place. Alliances will be revealed in 2023. They have their eye on Israel. They are thirsty for blood and power in the Middle East. Watch Iran in 2023. The Persian tiger is roaming around seeking to devour those around them.
Much corruption continues to take place in Italy that will come to light in 2023. There is corruption concerning money and those in power.
I saw a 7.3 earthquake hit Argentina. God is dealing with injustice and religious system. We must deal with the plank in your eye Argentina says the Lord.
LORD my God, if I have done this, If there is injustice in my hands Psall 7:3
This is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Reform your ways and your actions, and I will let you live in this place. Jeremiah 7:33
The end is now upon you, and I will unleash my anger against you. I will judge you according to your conduct and repay you for all your detestable practices. Ezekiel 7:3
Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but don't consider the beam that is in your own eye? Matthew 7:3
I see great unrest all over this continent. The people will take to the streets because they are tired of being oppressed by government regimes. Revolution is taking place in the hearts of the people of South America where there has been much oppression. I see a changing of guard in governments and in the Church. God is raising up new leaders of His church in South America. Once again God will begin to blow upon the land of South America. A fresh mantle of revival is being released over South America. The young people of South America will rise as a mighty army of God. Many leaders that have carried revival in South America are passing the baton to the next generation of leaders.
