2018 Prophetic Word: Cancer, Baby Boomers, Trump, and the Nations
The following is what I have received for the year 2018 and beyond during a 21 day period of prayer and fasting. I fully recognize that I “see” in part (1 Cor 13:12) and submit these prophetic words to the body of Christ so that they may be judged and put to the test accordingly. I firmly believe that the spirit of true prophetic ministry testifies and points to Jesus Christ. The first part of the word directly deals with the body of Christ. Part two of the word however deals with politics and the world. It is my opinion that while the prophetic words in part two do not directly point to Christ, they are intended to prepare the body of Christ for the days ahead by offering a prophetic perspective and narrative to what is happening in the world as God has revealed to me.
My prayer is that these prophetic words may serve as a template for intercession and active partnership when and where God directs. May they be read and received as a small contribution among other prophetic words that are being given by trusted prophets in the body of Christ. Certain sections of these prophetic words will apply to some, other parts will not. I encourage those who read this to seek the Lord and if He reveals that the shoe fits, then wear it. If not, let it pass you by and impact the intended audience.
PART 1- THE CHURCH
The Body of Christ Has Cancer
What a shocking and horrible claim to make regarding the body of our Lord, but this is the exact phrase I continue to hear as I stand in the council of the Lord. As we know, when someone is diagnosed with cancer, it typically is located in a specific area of the body. I believe that I have heard from God that the body of Christ indeed has cancer, but I do not believe God means that ALL parts of the body have cancer.
As I have wept before Him at His diagnosis of parts of the body of Christ, I have cried out and begged him to tell me how bad the cancer is. In what stage is the cancer? Is it curable? What exactly is the “cancer”? God continues to quicken my spirit to 2 Timothy 2:15-19 as Paul says to Timothy,
“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth. But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness, and their talk will spread like gangrene (CANCER). Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, men who have gone astray from the truth saying that the resurrection has already taken place, and they upset the faith of some.Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness.”
The specific cancer that God has revealed to me that parts of the body of Christ have is what the Scripture calls a “scoffing spirit.”
2 Peter 3:3-4 says, “Know this first of all, that in the last days scoffers will come with their scoffing, following after their own lusts saying, “Where is the promise of His coming?”
God said to me, “Beware of a scoffing spirit that is spreading like cancer in My body concerning the return of my Son Jesus. There will be false teachers, prophets, and apostles that will rise in the earth that will scoff at these last days and claim that My Son has already returned and will not come again. They will not teach on the reality of hell, the fear of My name, nor the urgency of the hour that you live in. They are killing the zeal and passion that I’m desiring to arouse in my Bride prior to the sending of My Bridegroom Son. You must look for those who accurately handle My word of truth.”
He continued, “In order to eradicate the cancer from the body, I am raising up apostolic and prophetic messengers that will cry aloud and spare not. They will challenge and confront these false apostles, prophets, and teachers like never before. As the Scriptures say, the faith of many will be upset over this growing cancer in My body. The cancer is not only limited to the teaching that My Son has already or will not return, but also the scoffing spirit that will reject the call for urgency and holiness in the body. You are about to witness the highlighting, focus, and emphasis of the return of My Son in the earth like never before. I’m going to mark and grip messengers with My holy fire that will leave them blessed with groaning and travail. You will see two contending movements that will rise in the body in the days ahead, says God. One movement will seek to pacify and put the body to sleep as the cancer spreads and another opposing movement will cry out for the return of My Son Jesus and warn the body of their need to be sober and alert in these days that you live in” says the Lord.
I want to sound the alarm in the body of Christ and warn you to watch out for false apostles, teachers, and prophets who are claiming and will claim that there is no second coming of Jesus Christ. A scoffing spirit concerning these last days that we live in is the cancer that will attempt to spread throughout the body of Christ in the days ahead. Look for a contending movement and burst of wildfire to break out in other parts of the body concerning the return of Jesus Christ and the reality of hell and what awaits those who are not ready. A hunger for the harvest fueled by the second coming of Jesus is being released in the earth. The fear of the Lord and waves of holiness and preparation for the Bridegroom will mark many messengers and church communities in 2018 and beyond. The oil of lovesickness if coming!
Absaloms on the Loose
The Lord began to talk to me about the spirit of Absalom that is upon some in the body of Christ who are attempting to expand their ministries through self-promotion and attaching themselves to the church leaders and the generals of this generation. (2 Sam 15) I felt an extreme urgency from God that He is desiring to warn the generals of multiple large movements in the body of Christ to be on guard against Absalom’s in your midst who through self-promotion and flattery will attempt to steal the hearts of the people God has called you to minister to. These Absaloms on the loose will refuse to be tested, consecrated, and processed. They will sow confusion, discord, and strife in networks, churches, and gatherings. Having the appearance of being the real deal in their speech and outward actions, inwardly they are full of pride and selfish ambition. God specifically showed me a “wannabee” spirit that rests upon the Absaloms that are on the loose. They want the platform and recognition, but are unwilling to pay the price and wait their turn for promotion. They force doors of ministry open and constantly use the platform and relationships they have with others as a point of leverage in conversations and gatherings. We must pray that the Absaloms on the loose will be exposed in the body of Christ in 2018. Many generals that lead movements and church leaders are in danger of being deceived and mislead by Absaloms. Many saints are in danger of being deceived by the Absaloms on the loose into believing they are tried and tested leaders when they are not. Beware!
Here Come the Baby Boomers
God showed me that there are many men and women in the body of Christ right now born between 1946-1964 that have been “overlooked”. In 2018, God is going to begin to promote and grant favor to men and women in the body of Christ who have been overlooked and reward them for their faithfulness and courage even when they have suffered disappointment and rejection on many occasions. I heard God say, “Great wisdom is missing in My body.” I said, “Where is it Lord?” He said, “It’s with the baby boomers who have been overlooked, but now they will be revealed carrying great wisdom to My body for such a time as this! If you were born between 1946-1964, God says, “This is your year! Do not continue to feel sorry for yourself or believe that I have left you on the sidelines. I say to you this year, it is time to get off the bench and get in the game. The young generations are in great need of the wisdom you carry, wisdom that has come at times from your own failures and mistakes. Nonetheless, you have much to offer and if you are willing and available, I will cause a vibrancy and fresh wind of My Spirit to come upon you and enable you to fulfill My will in and around you, says God. Some of you have even had some measures of success in your younger years, but have fallen prey to discouragement over the last ten years. I will strengthen you” says your God. “I will cause you to rise to the occasion and fulfill the assignments I am about to release to you this year. Be encouraged and of good cheer. I will fight for you and win your heart over to me like never before. This is your year says God! Books are still yet to be written, young people are still yet to be led. Projects must be completed. Some of you will even marry. You will not be defined by your divorce. Do not become discouraged! I’m with you and for you!”
The Hispanic Awakening
God began to show me the convergence of large gatherings of hispanics and latinos in 2018. I heard God say, “When the cries of the prisoners reach the ears of the deliverers, revival breaks out! I am setting the Hispanic and Latino prisoners free in 2018. I have seen and heard the cry of those who are in religious bondage and I will bring great deliverance this year! Look for the Hispanic and Latino Gideon’s to arise! These are men and women who I have encountered and revealed a warrior identity to. Though they be from humble beginnings, I will anoint them with My Spirit to tear down the Baal idols even in their father’s home. I am freeing My Hispanic and Latino sons and daughters from the religious bondage and control that has been suffocating and oppressing them for years. My Gideon’s will rise and bring great deliverance and freedom to the captives who sit in church every Sunday. A revelation of My deliverance, My grace, and My Fatherhood will be extended to My Hispanic and Latino people in 2018.”
PART 2- POLITICS AND THE WORLD
God has visited me on numerous occasions in the last several weeks (January 2018) concerning Donald Trump and He continues to remind me of the prophecy I received concerning him in July of 2015 that was also published by Charisma Magazine and went viral around the world. The prophecy God spoke to me was this,
“Trump shall become My trumpet to the American people, for he possesses qualities that are even hard to find in My people these days. Trump does not fear man nor will he allow deception and lies to go unnoticed. I am going to use him to expose darkness and perversion in America like never before, but you must understand that he is like a bull in a china closet. Many will want to throw him away because he will disturb their sense of peace and tranquility, but you must listen through the bantering to discover the truth that I will speak through him. I will use the wealth that I have given him to expose and launch investigations searching for the truth. Just as I raised up Cyrus to fulfill My purposes and plans, so have I raised up Trump to fulfill my purposes and plans prior to the 2016 election. You must listen to the trumpet very closely for he will sound the alarm and many will be blessed because of his compassion and mercy. Though many see the outward pride and arrogance, I have given him the tender heart of a father that wants to lend a helping hand to the poor and the needy, to the foreigner and the stranger.”
The days and months following the release of this prophetic word in July of 2015 were full of bitter accusation and attack from thousands across the body of Christ. To this day, I still stand by this prophecy I received and gave. I truly believe God has and is using Trump as a type of trumpet in America, but he is like a bull in a china shop and his words must be sifted through in order to hear the truth He is speaking at times.
Then two days before Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, I received and published another prophetic dream in which a baby with the face of Donald Trump was brought to a church and given to an older woman who was a nursery worker at a church. The woman began to rock baby Donald and sing over him. This is what she sang, “Donald, you have a crooked way in you, but through the intercession of the Church, God is going to change you.” She sang this tune over Donald several times and then I woke up.
Having had a significant amount of time to pray through this dream, I have become convinced by the Spirit of God that there is a tremendous amount of weight and responsibility that now rests upon the Church as Donald Trump has been elected President. Per the dream, Donald has clearly been given by God as a gift to the Church and she must engage in intercession in order to drive out the crooked way that is inside of him. Donald Trump is not the savior of America, and the Church must not go back to business as usual now that he has been elected. In prayer, I heard the Spirit of God say, “The presidency of Donald Trump will be defined by one thing: his character. You must know that his character can be greatly shaped and forged through the faithful intercession and prayers of the Church.”
Pondering and praying through Trump’s presidency in 2018, I received a vision of his right hand that began to turn into an IRON FIST. God spoke to me and said, “Trump’s grip is going to tighten while the liberal agenda loses its grip.” I saw the liberal agenda in America gasping for breath as the Trump agenda (the iron fist) squeezes and suffocates its opponents. I saw desperation, wild accusation, and startling trepidation descend upon Washington. Then I began to see something that both surprised me and caused me to pause. The iron fist of Donald Trump was too much for the American people to bear. The pressure and strength of his grip while at first was reassuring, in the end, it brought great unnecessary destruction. I felt an alarm go off deep within my spirit. God said, “I have raised Donald Trump up for four years as a battering ram and trumpet in this nation, but without a serious sanctification and softening of his heart and words, there will be great trouble and danger that will mark his run for a second term. Even those who were once for him, will see the error of his ways and begin to cry out for his soul. Do not be deceived by the wealth and change that Donald has and will bring to America, for I am after far more than the gifts I have irrevocably given him, I must have his heart so that I can order His steps.”
The following night after receiving this word, I had a prophetic dream where I saw Donald Trump crawling around on the White House lawn eating grass and acting like an animal. Immediately I cried out to the Lord in the dream and said, “God, shall Donald Trump become like Nebuchadnezzar? Shall he become so consumed with his success that he begins to credit his accomplishments to his own strength and power? Will you remove sovereignty from his life?”
God spoke to me and said, “Donald Trump is in great danger of becoming like Nebuchadnezzar in the years ahead. He will have great success, but the Church must pray for humility and the Daniel Company to arise. Just like Nebuchadnezzar, if Donald breaks away from his sins by doing righteously and showing mercy to the poor, I will prolong his prosperity.” (Dan 4:27)
I woke up from the prophetic dream with a tremendous burden upon my heart. To be honest, I could not believe what I just received. Could the prophetic narrative surrounding Donald Trump completely change without the prayers of the Church, the rise of the Daniel Company, and a repositioning of his own heart? Could Donald Trump have been raised up by God Himself like a Cyrus and bring necessary change to America, but through his own pride, arrogance, and forsaking of the poor end as a Nebuchadnezzar? The answer is: ABSOLUTELY. Saints, this man desperately needs our prayers! God is prophetically warning us now in 2018 before its too late.
While I have not been given permission by God to directly prophesy into Trump’s potential second term, I do sense strongly that there is potential great danger and trouble ahead for America if he is re-elected. He has currently been granted the “iron grip” that will run its course and fulfill its purpose, but Donald Trump may very well be a type of pioneer or trailblazer that must recognize when His mission is complete and it now becomes necessary to turn the nation over to another that can capitalize on the momentum he helped to start, but do it in a much more wise and tactful way. We must keep praying for Donald Trump and for the purposes of God to be manifested through His life and presidency, but do not be surprised if Donald’s grip and force becomes too much in the days ahead for many to bear. The attacks, plots, and plans against him will become more and more bizarre in the days ahead. I believe God is releasing a very clear prophetic narrative with Donald Trump so that the intercessors, watchmen, and prophets know how to pray and act in the days ahead.
The Daniel Company
I’m convinced through prayer that Donald Trump desperately needs a Daniel Company to arise in the United States that will faithfully give him the word of the Lord and advise him with Godly counsel at strategic times during his Presidency. Donald Trump has and will even appoint some of those in the Daniel Company. God has revealed to me that Sarah Huckabee and Mike Pence are specifically carrying this anointing and have undoubtedly been placed around Trump for such a time as this. On Inauguration Day (January 20, 2017), I gave the following public prophecy in Merritt Island, FL: “Mike Pence will not bow down to Donald Trump, bur rather will stand up to him. I am giving Mike Pence a backbone like never before and he will faithfully deliver the truth to Donald Trump again and again” says the Lord. Then God said “I myself will stand up in the midst of the UN council. Those who oppose Israel, I will oppose. Those who defend Israel, I will defend” says God.
I believe God has also revealed to be that even Benjamin Netanyahu is part of the Daniel Company that is surrounding Donald Trump in an attempt to keep him from becoming a type of Nebuchadnezzar in the years ahead. On December 29, 2016, I gave the following prophecy that was recorded, God says, “Benjamin, though small in the eyes of many men, has gained great favor with Me. I will use him as a frontrunner in the nations of the earth to expose the plots and plans of the enemy. He will be a trusted adviser to Donald Trump and help him navigate through turbulent days ahead. Donald will be a friend to Israel and Israel will be a friend to Donald and America.”
The Daniel Company is also those in the body of Christ who will fast and pray for Donald Trump. They will walk in holiness and the fear of the Lord. They will contend against any pride or arrogance that will attempt to overtake Trump in the days ahead. God will give them clear prophetic dreams, visions, and strategy for the body of Christ on how to pray and what to pray for. They will be a tremendous catalyst and key in the hand of the Lord to turn America toward God like never before. Donald Trump is not the savior of America, but he has indeed been raised up by God for divine purposes and the enemy will attempt to thwart his destiny without the prayers and prophetic intelligence of the saints.
Nikki Haley: United States Ambassador to UN
God continues to speak to me concerning Nikki Haley, the United States Ambassador to the UN. On May 30, 2016, I gave a prophecy concerning her that declared, “You must recognize that Governor Haley from South Carolina is my Esther of the hour! My body on the East Coast must stand with her, for the time is now! Open up your arms to her and do not be blind to the anointing and favor that I have placed upon her life for such a time as this”says God.
On October 6, 2016 I received another prophecy that was recorded and said, “Governor Haley from South Carolina will be strategically used to guide and navigate her state and nation through crisis in the days ahead. She is carrying a strong Esther anointing and the intercessors will find strong favor with her” says God. It wasn’t but several months later that she promoted, invited, and accepted a position by Donald Trump to be the United States Ambassador to the United Nations.
Several weeks ago (January 2018), I received another prophetic dream where I saw her face on the Ace of spades as it was placed in the back pocket of a young man. God spoke to me and said, “Nikki Haley is an ace in the hole of this nation. The Esther anointing I have given her will increase and she will receive more and more publicity in the days ahead. Look for her leadership and charisma to be a steadying force in the nations that will unite those who see clearly and warn of those who are blind. I will use Nikki as a plumb line that will both unite and divide the nations.”
I want to be clear and say that I do not believe God is specifically saying that He is raising up Nikki Haley to replace Donald Trump. Now would I be surprised if Nikki Haley becomes the first female President in the years ahead? No. Am I prophesying that? No. What I am saying is that God is asking the intercessors and saints to keep an eye on her so that we may pray and continue to look for the manifestation of the Esther anointing upon her life. She has been strategically chosen for her role in the nations.
Canada: A Nation Ripe for Revival
God says, “There is a young people movement coming out of Canada. I have heard the cries for revival and awakening and I’m releasing the fellowship of the burning hearts. Grassroots revival communities will begin to flourish in 2018. There are mighty outpourings of My Spirit coming. I am doing away with an old religious wineskin in Canada and will pour out new wine into gatherings of believers who embrace family and the moving of My Spirit. My apostles and prophets will gather in Canada in the days ahead and form an alliance together to see sustained revival and reformation in the land.
I say to you, “Beware of the Islamic agenda that will continue to increase on a governmental level in Canada. The government in Canada will cry out ‘Peace, Peace when there is no peace’. Trudeau has come to bring a peace offering to the nations when I have called him as a man of war. There is a warrior inside of Trudeau and I desire to put strong conviction in him. Heavy intercession and a great birthing of worship will come forth out of Canada in response to the liberal agenda rising in the Government. Thousands of Muslims will be converted in Canada. New sounds of worship and prophetic intercession will come forth in 2018. I’m doing a new thing in the midst of the coming storms. Hold on My people says God for days of great shaking are coming to Canada. Great glory upon My Church and great crisis upon the nation. Keep your eyes on the news!”
South Africa And Australia: The Pure Ones
God says, “I am releasing a prophetic reformation in South Africa and Australia. I’m calling forth My pure one’s even now, those who have not been defiled by the craving for fame and fortune. There is a firebrand generation in South Africa and Australia that I have reserved for such a time as this. They are the seven thousand that have not bowed their knees to Baal. There is much Baal worship taking place in South Africa and Australia. Men and women worshipping themselves and the gifting that I have given them. Many large churches building their own kingdoms and claiming to do it in My name. There is a sleeping and slumbering spirit spreading in South Africa and Australia. My pure ones the prophets are about to sound the alarm and call My Bride to awake and make herself ready.
I say to some of you, “You are not to leave South Africa and Australia for the United States. You are to stay in the place you were born in and dig the pure wells I have called you to dig. The desire to move to America has become a source of selfish ambition and carnal desires. I say to some of you in South Africa and Australia, “Stay home! My plans and purposes will be manifested in the days ahead and you must not grow weary now. I’m raising up companies of prophets, My pure One’s who will give My word without the fear of man. Do not grow discouraged because of the seeker friendly spirit that has overtaken the body in South Africa and Australia.
There is a coming divine connection between South Africa and Australia in the days ahead. Look for My pure ones, the prophets to rise and give language to the ache and cry of the South African’s and Australian’s. A revival of holiness is coming. The true gospel of My Son Jesus will be preached in the days ahead. A strong and mighty remnant will lift up a cry for the return of My Son in South Africa and Australia. The forerunner messengers are coming. They are those gripped with the oil of intimacy and the urgency of the hour. Now is the time” says God.
